Question of the Week:

Schools are getting ready to let students out for spring break. What are your plans?


Great Day for Girl Scouts!
More than 50 local Girl Scouts attended the recent Montgomery County Girl Scout World Thinking Day. The annual event took place at First United Methodist Church in Crawfordsville. The focus of the event was for Girl Scouts and Girl Guides all around the world to think of each other and give thanks and appreciation to their “sister” Girl Guides and Girl Scouts. The day began with songs and ceremonies, followed by an international bazaar of booths. Troops took part in booths representing Japan, Hong Kong, Greece, Madagascar, India and Switzerland. By visiting the booths, girls learned about different countries while sampling food, games and crafts. Founded in 1912 by Juliette Gordon Low, Girl Scouts' membership has grown from 18 members in Savannah, Ga., to 3.7 million members throughout the United States. More than 44,000 girls in 45 counties participate through the Girl Scouts of Central Indiana Council.

  • Addams Family creeps onto Vanity stage
    Thursday, September 15, 2016 4:00 AM
    “They’re creepy and their kooky, mysterious and spooky . . . ”
    This catchy theme song from the 1960s television show haunted the childhoods of millions of Americans, whether they watched the original Addams Family episodes or caught them over the years in syndication. The beloved story of this strange, yet endearing, family and their misadventures with “normal” people has been turned into a popular musical debuting in Crawfordsville over the next two weekends.
    The Sugar Creek Players’ production of The Addams Family creeps onto the stage at the Vanity Theater, Sept. 16, 19, 23 and 25.

    Looking for something to do Saturday morning and afternoon? If you are, the Franciscan Health Crawfordsville Community Day is Saturday at the hospital.
    “We wanted people to be able to identify with the hospital as a positive member of the community,” Matt Oates, Marketing Specialist for Franciscan Health in Crawfordsville and Lafayette explained. “It gives people of the community a different reason to come to the hospital, other than for injuries or ailments. It’s also a great way to let people know what we do here.”

    Montgomery County, prepare yourself for yet another big event from the friendly folks at Tom’s Marine.
    The Shavers, located just south of Crawfordsville of State Road 47, have been the host site for the Ironman Nationals and other ATV races. Now, they are once again the site for this year’s edition of the Warrior Dash.
    “This is the most relaxed event we provide the property for,” Lori Shaver of Tom’s Marine said. “We don’t really have to do much for the event other than provide the property. The Warrior Dash people take care of the rest.”
    The Warrior Dash runs from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., with a good amount of the event using the same area as the Ironman Raceway.

    The steering committee for Wabash Heartland Innovation Network, recently announced a new strategy to help with research and development of the existing assets in the Wabash Heartland Region.
    The project is in its first of multiple phases after being awarded a $575,000 grant from Lilly Endowment Inc.
    “This plan is to benchmark our region against other communities,” Ron Dickerson, a member of the steering committee and president of the board of Indiana West Advantage said. “The idea was to really approach (foundations), specifically Lilly (Endowment Inc.). That really got this started.”
    Dickerson said that the plan has consumed the better part of the past 20 months for the committee—that consists of 12 members from various counties that make up the region. It is called the Wabash Heartland Region Economic and Community Prosperity Plan.

  • Never Forgotten
    Friday, August 12, 2016 10:55 PM
    Sarah Conway never met Chief Master Sargent Gene E. Davis, of the United States Air Force.
    Yet, Sarah has never forgotten him.
    Davis disappeared in Vietnam on March 13, 1966. He is still listed as Missing in Action.
    Sarah purchased a POW/MIA bracelet in 1972, part of a program started by college students in California that swept the nation. The proceeds from purchasing a bracelet – usually made of aluminum, stamped with a service member's name – was intended to help the veterans returning from war, and to help find the missing, by keeping their names in the public eye.

    Free kids day at Milligan Park Pool was just another of many ways that our first responders give back to the community. Firefighters from the Crawfordsville Professional Fire Fighters Union Local 4143 were at the pool Tuesday serving hot dogs, chips and soda to local families at the pool. They also raffled off new bikes! Free kids day also tied in to National Night Out that took place at Milligan Park Tuesday evening.
