Just a couple more days until the bona fide American Hero comes to Princeton. Retired Marine Lieutenant Colonel Oliver North will be in town Saturday for several speaking events - including a patriotic rally that will raise funds for The Indiana Military Support Corporation, a charity that supports local veterans. It begins in the new Princeton Community High School auditorium at 2:30 PM and includes a talk about the flag-raising at Iwo Jima - and a couple of presentations by speed painter Randall Hedden, who hails from the area. Those works will be later auctioned off. Tickets for the event are $15 and are available at Onsite OHS offices on the west side of the square in Princeton. That afternoon of patriotism will be followed by North's appearance at the Gibson County Republicans' Lincoln Day Dinner at Camp Carson. That event is sold out. North's career in public service included 22 years in the military, tours of duty in Vietnam, and working as an intelligence coordinator in the Reagan administration. He's since written 13 New York Times Best-Sellers and hosts military documentary show on Fox News Channel.
