"My Town and Yours" Thoughts and Observations of Mark Lange
He's a Good Sport

Many folks around here agree that Mayor Joe Yochum is a good sport. He does the work of the city all day and then does the hard work in off hours. Last night his appearance at the Power Team Program in Vincennes was an example of the hard work. Let's figure he attended to real city business for at least eight hours - probably started at 7 am at the Breakfast Band Wagon and went from there and at 7 pm he was at First Church of God to lie on a bed of nails and have a cement block broken while it was placed on his chest. You can see the stunt here at WZDM.com. Just click on the "BLOG" tab near the top of the home page and then pick "Aaron's VBlog".
You know, I've got this all wrong. The tough work for Mayor Yochum isn't getting blocks of cement broken on his chest while his back is poked with a bed of nails, it's listening to people like me nag about the pot holes, lack of curbs, and bla bla bla.... The whole bed of nails and cement blocks are the fun part. Enjoy Joe!
