Local columnist passes
Early Tuesday morning, Jim Beery, a Times columnist for the past several years, passed away.
Beery has been a constant on Wednesday print editions with "The Country Side of Life" being a column that many enjoyed about his past experiences and life lessons.
His last column was written last Thursday and is on Page 7 in today's print edition.
In a social media post by the Vincennes Sun-Commercial, it stated that he "died early Tuesday morning (as) the result of a heart attack."
Beery was a retired teacher, deeply involved in Knox County and was a pastor of Merom United Methodist Church.
