HIGHLAND | Longtime Democratic office holder, outspoken advocate and newspaper columnist Thurm Ferree was remembered Monday as much for his devotion to Catholicism as he was for his role as a leader of public discussion.

THURM FERREE: Parting advice in my last column

THURM FERREE: Parting advice in my last column

Well, everyone requires a rest, and that is what I am going to take from writing this column. It has been a joy to say what you think even though many of the GOP criticized me heavily for what I wrote. That's the price any writer will pay for opinion columns.

U.S. would be better off with Republican president

I would like to inform Thurm Ferree that all the oldsters I know would completely disagree with him. Also, we are the only one of the industrialized countries that have or don't have a lot of things, and we have got along much better than them in spite of being different or maybe because we …

THURM FERREE: AARP should help bring end to legislative gridlock

THURM FERREE: AARP should help bring end to legislative gridlock

The case for the retention or removing the health care reform act is right before old folks, who have been helped so much by it. You remember the 50 million of you who will be watching? The three days allowed by the U.S. Supreme Court to look at these questions and take testimony are over. T…

THURM FERREE: Pressure Congress for action on energy issues

THURM FERREE: Pressure Congress for action on energy issues

Here we are with new charges by the GOP presidential candidates that the president is doing nothing to stem the price of gas. There is little that can be done as long as there are problems in the Far East but perhaps lower the federal gas tax.

I have a number of things to write about in this column today.

THURM FERREE: Answers to readers' questions about columns

THURM FERREE: Answers to readers' questions about columns

I know it's popular for many in the state to denigrate Lake County for its political past. Yes, I agree we have had several public officials convicted and imprisoned over the years for things done while in elected office, and I do not try to hide that.

THURM FERREE: My response to Gov. Daniels' response

THURM FERREE: My response to Gov. Daniels' response

I know there are many who love and respect Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels and loved him more after his GOP response to President Barack Obama's State of the Union address.

Be specific about Lake County not having enough money

Columnist Thurm Ferree insists Lake County government is underfunded improperly to pay for local government because our property taxes were not raised by Gov. Mitch Daniels.

THURM FERREE: In which direction is the United States headed?

THURM FERREE: In which direction is the United States headed?

Many of us are asking: Where is the United States going? We are in the middle of a presidential campaign, and members of Congress are in a quandary. The trust in government these days ranks at about 12 percent and the president at about 44 percent, so we are in for a negative campaign tellin…

THURM FERREE: What else will Daniels do to Lake County?

THURM FERREE: What else will Daniels do to Lake County?

The sum total of what Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels has done will not be known until he leaves office. We in Lake County wish that had been after one term. Why? Because other Republican governors have treated us fairly even though we side heavily with the other major political party.

Ferree should try criticizing Democrats occasionally, too

Thurm Ferree, like President Barack Obama, blames everything on the Republicans. Ferree can't seem to find it in himself to write any columns about such things as Solyndra, or maybe Fast and Furious.

THURM FERREE: Resolve to be merry now, civil in new year

There are so many things to be thankful for at this time of year. The birth of Jesus comes to mind first. Our men and women being out of Iraq and returning home. Our loved ones with whom we spend this time. The memories of our own time with our children as they grow up and have their own fam…

THURM FERREE: Congress put political wishbone over governance

We have to say to each other "Happy Thanksgiving" or "Merry Christmas" because we are lucky to live here in this old USA.

Ferree jabs at Republicans, swings past Democrats

First, Thurm Ferree has to bring up the Tea Party and extreme right. No mention of the Wall Street goons. Wonder why?

THURM FERREE: Americans are not dumb about how they should vote

I've written many times about the 2012 election and that I think it really is about the future of this country.

THURM FERREE: Sleep well, all you heroes and heroines

Please excuse me for not doing a column on politics. I was so touched by what I saw in the 9/11 history broadcast on TV and in the newspapers. It became so fresh again as we watched those who told their stories of parents, family members and friends in the downing of the two World Trade Cent…
