A Hello From Me To You
If you have a subscription to The Brazil Times, and if youíre reading this, Iím guessing that you do, you may have noticed an ad a few weeks ago with my name in it.
It said that you would be seeing more of me in upcoming issues.
And now you are, Iím here.
Iím Adler Ingalsbe, and Iím taking over as the Timesí Sports Editor, and couldnít be more excited about whatís to come.
I have plenty of new ideas Iím eager to bring to the Clay County community, and have plenty of stories I want to tell about the athletes and teams.
There, however, will likely be a story I may have not heard about that you have, and I ask if you do, please reach out to me at email@example.com.
This section is about you and what you want to read.
So, letís make this a two-way street with open communication and put the best content out that we can, together.
But first, I think itís important you know a little about me.
I was born and raised in Terre Haute, where I attended Terre Haute North High School before committing to play baseball Ė in the spring of 2012 Ė at Purdue North Central, an NAIA school that has since unified with Purdue Calumet to form Purdue University Northwest.
It took me all of one year to figure out that was no longer the place I belonged and decided to return home and attend Indiana State University.
There, I earned my degree in Journalism and graduated in 2016.
A few months after graduation, I was hired by the Tribune-Star, where Iíve been writing for the last three-plus years (I also did some work for the Times, as well as the Banner Graphic in Greencastle).
I met my wife, Kelli, while at Terre Haute North, she attended Terre Haute South at the same time. We dated the final two years of high school and then all through college before getting engaged in 2017 and married in 2018.
We have two dogs, Finn, a yellow lab mix, and Paisley, a beagle, and will be adding a baby to our growing family in April.
But thatís enough about me.
Now, let's get these stories to paper, while I integrate myself, as well as my family, to the community.
