    AS OUR pal Honest Hoosier might say, here’s a tip of the seed corn cap to Montgomery County’s gem, Shades State Park. Folks there are hard at work sprucing things up. This week we caught Gale Williams and Joseph Lenover putting new concrete fiber board on the gate house. Thanks, gentlemen!

    CUTE SIGN at a local dentist office in town: What did the dentist say to the golfer? You have a hole in one!

    OUR MYSTERY Guest last week was the lovely Anne Shaw, deputy director of the Crawfordsville / Montgomery County Chamber of Commerce.
    The big winner for the second week in a row was Adam Hutchison who just beat out DB Walker, Judi Kleine and Charlie Evans. Mabel Evans thought it might be Terri Gadd and Jeff Smith thought it was Amy Davis.

    Nothing funny about disasters, and that’s where Montgomery County Emergency Management Director was at all week. OK, she wasn’t at a real disaster but one that was simulated for training purposes. Shari and a few others from Montgomery County went to Butlerville, Ind. to work with others from around the state on a simulated earthquake.

    A LOT OF YOU have been asking where the Bubbling Caldron is this year. The big guy said he’s from parts unknown and we’re guessing that’s exactly where’s he hiding out. All we know for sure is that we haven’t seen him. One thing is for sure though, he very likely would’ve predicted last week’s big high school football upsets!

    HATS OFF TO the staff of the Bachelor, Wabash College’s newspaper. They kicked off the year with their second edition this week, led by editor Cole Crouch, a senior. As our friend Honest Hoosier would say, a tip of the seed corn cap to you, men. And from one Montgomery County newspaper to another, have a great year!

    EVERYONE TALKS about newspapers dying. Oh pshaw! Did you know that your favorite Montgomery County daily has more readers today than ever before? The proliferation of online audiences means that our reach has never been bigger. No brag, just fact.

    WE'RE TWO WEEKS away from Franciscan St. Elizabeth Health – Crawfordsville’s annual Community Day. This year, the 5K will begin across the street at Christi Hubler’s auto dealership. The route will run behind the business and out near the overpass to Interstate 74 before turning and heading out into the country and back again. See you out there?

    IF YOU'VE BEEN reading The Paper of late, you’ve probably noticed that Civitan, Kiwanis, Rotary and other groups are looking for new members.

    Your favorite Montgomery County daily got a press release this week from singer Jonathan Edwards. You might remember his big hit, Sunshine Go Away Today. The release said that anthemic song came out in 1971, “almost 40 years ago.” Those of us who remember the song might understand wishing it was only 40 years ago. Truth is, it was 45. Hey, those extra five years make a difference!

    WHAT A GREAT weekend to live and work in Crawfordsville / Montgomery County! No matter what your tastes (no pun intended, folks at Lew Wallace Study) are, there is something going on. Enjoy!

    Welcome back to Bits’n’Pieces, a weekly feature from the friendly folks at Montgomery County’s favorite daily. Bits is a feature that has been written by Montgomery County journalists for decades. It attempts to bring a smile, a chuckle and maybe even a raised eyebrow to you.

    In addition, it’s a feature that will give you the opportunity to win cash!

    Each week there will be a photo of someone well known who we’ll simply identify as our Mystery Guest. The first person who correctly identifies the Mystery Guest before the following week will win $25 cash!

    We hope you enjoy Bits’n’Pieces! Better yet, we hope you’ll share some of your own tidbits with us for future weeks!
