    We have always been a bit "mixed" up and this meeting will show you this. The August meeting of Dubble Duzzen met in the home of Patsy Stephens. Stephens began the meeting with delicious refreshments of Cherry Delight, chocolate pie and Fruit Pizza served with yummy Dreamsicle Punch. The napkin prizes were won by Sandy Caldwell, and Eulah Jaynes. Then, the meeting was opened by President Judy Tulley's welcome. The flag salutes were recited along with the club creed. Peggy Dixon gave the inspirational words based on Proverb14:1,"A wise woman builds her home but a foolish woman tears it down with her own hands".She said there was a "clean and very comfortable" home that had a Rosette Basket in the entrance that was so inviting to all who entered the home. The house was not filled with brand new fine items . But all who came were gladly recieved and taken care of much like Jesus' disiciples were taken care of when they were out doing His work. We all need to realize that we need to be caring to all who enter our surroundings.
    The treasurer's report was read & approved. In the absence of the secretary, the minutes of last meeting was not read.
    Fourteen members and Pat Hall's daughter Charlotte answered the roll call which was 
    "Where is the most interesting place you've been.” All had different answers spanning world and some loved the county's offerings, too.
    Song Leader Cheryl Douglas led the group in "School Days".

  • Newest Waveland feature now finished
    Friday, August 18, 2017 4:00 AM
    The beautiful mural painted by local artist, Delores (DJ) Thomas Farley. This is DJ’s third time around, first helping Artist Mark Launer who now lives in Massachusetts and paints Clipper Ships. He laid it all out and several artists worked on it, Bert Holland, Bernice Myers Fullenwider and Peggy Starnes for sure. DJ did the Christian Church. This was to celebrate Waveland’s 150th (1985) birthday. Sandy Gillogly was the brain child deciding a mural to celebrate the beautiful and historical places of the town would be a grand idea.

  • Wanting the best for kids . . .
    Friday, August 18, 2017 4:00 AM
    Jill Hampton has a passion for helping other. For the past 29 years, she’s had the opportunity to do that through positions with the Montgomery County Youth Service Bureau. For the last six years, she’s had the opportunity to put a special emphasis on helping local children through the Juvenile Youth Mentoring Program (JUMP). She’s the program director.
    “I still get so much fulfillment out of my job,” Hampton said. “It feels good to know that we are helping our youth and building characters through these programs.”
    Hampton remembered several cases of extremely successful mentee growth through the JUMP program. Whether it was the boy who learned how to swim through mentoring or the girl who opened up, joined choir and went on to sing in a national contest, she’s seen it all. 
    “We tell all mentors that we have the resources for them,” Hampton said. “We want to try to connect with families and not just the kids. I’m grateful for all of our wonderful volunteers and we are always looking for more.”
    Hampton and her husband Carl live in northern Montgomery County with their rescue dog, Levi. Hampton said that they love traveling and have been to places like Italy, Costa Rica, Belize and several small islands. Nowadays, Hamptons like to take driving trips with Levi. She reflected on the trip to Costa Rica the year she turned 50 and learned to surf.

    A fire Wednesday night resulted in one firefighter taken to the hospital, several pets dying and a house destroyed.
    Firefighters from Crawfordsville Fire Department responded to a house fire at 703 Binford St. on the near northeast side of downtown Wednesday night. The call came in at 6:19 p.m. and the fire was under control by 6:52, even though the residence was a total loss.
    CFD Chief Scott Busenbark said the cause of the fire likely stemmed from an electrical issue. He said when firefighters arrived the fire was coming out of the rear of the house. It quickly progressed into the attic.

    The Wabash College Theater Department will be well represented when the curtain rises on the 2017 Indy Fringe festival Thursday in Indianapolis.
    Of the 72 regularly scheduled productions slated for the 11-day festival, three efforts – I, Nephi: A Gay Mormon’s Survival Guide, Spectrum, and Jubilee in the Rear-View Mirror – include current Wabash students or recent graduates in the cast or production staff. Further, both I, Nephi and Spectrum originated on campus.
    Now in its 13th year, the Indy Fringe mission is to encourage and support local artists in bringing new theatrical ideas to a local audience. Such a mantra dovetails well with the Wabash Theater’s fundamental commitment to student creativity.
    “The Wabash presence at Indy Fringe is a testimony to our belief in theater as an incubator of student creativity,” said James M. Cherry, Chair of the Wabash Theater Department and Associate Professor of Theater. “A vital part of our work is to enable our students to make their own theater, tell their own stories, and discover their own truths. I, Nephi and Spectrum are pieces that perform the liberal arts, make the liberal arts manifest. Both engage complex, fraught topics – LGBTQ issues in the Mormon Church, and Autism Spectrum Disorder – in frank, unexpected ways.”

  • Helping out four-legged friends
    Thursday, August 17, 2017 4:00 AM
    Rebekah Mason from Russell Family Chiropractic presented a $1,000 check to the Animal Welfare League of Montgomery County Wednesday. Mason helped raise funds through a promotion at Russell Family Chiropractic where new patients could sign up for first day services (full exam and X-Rays) for just $20. That $20 was placed into the donation fund. 
    “When she told me what they had done and that they had a check for us I thought it was wonderful. We love it when the community gets involved,” Sillery said. “When she said it was for $1,000 I didn’t know what to say. Then I ran around and told everybody. We were really excited that that amount was coming in.” 
    Mason said that she chose the AWL as the first charity because of her love of animals.
    “We greatly appreciate all the work the animal shelter does for our community. Not all animals find a new forever home, but they all need shelter and food. We hope that our donation will help those that work hard to keep the shelter running and help them to continue to provide for our four legged friends,” said Dr. Larry Russell and Dr. Ryan Russell.

  • Experience Haiti
    Wednesday, August 16, 2017 1:00 PM
    North Montgomery High School senior Caroline McClaskey has a new gallery up at the Crawfordsville District Public Library. The photographs tell the story of McClaskey’s recent trip Haiti for mission work. 
    “Two years ago I traveled to Haiti for the first time. I loved it so much that I went back this summer, but I took my camera with me to document my amazing experience,” McClaskey wrote. “I have been interning with Abbey Elaine Photography for about a year now and she has taught be so much about photography. With her help, I decided to display my photographs to share with the community. I want to share my experiences and show all of you a glimpse of what life is like in Carrefour Sanon, Haiti. I hope that after you take a look at these images, you get a feel for how beautiful the scenery is and how awesome the people are. While there are many more images I could show you, these really stood out to me and tell a story of my experiences.”
    The images at the library are for sale and all profits will be donated back to the people of Carrefour Sanon, Haiti. The cost is $60 for 11x14 images and $35 for 8x10 images. The exhibit can be seen in the Mary Bishop Gallery of the Crawfordsville Library.

  •  Eagles, others give to Trent
    Wednesday, August 16, 2017 4:00 AM
    Eagles Auxiliary President Paula Wade and Aire President Doug Mather presented local musician Steve Trent with a check on Saturday to help with expenses incurred from a head on collision he was involved in. Wade said "Steve has given so much into this community over the years and we want to give him something in return, This is what we are all about!"
    While the Eagles of Crawfordsville presented him with a check , the American Legion with the help of Kathy Billingsly , mother-in-law of Trent and cook at the Legion was preparing a meal for a benefit with (4) bands performing and a motorcycle ride with more than 45 bikes participating. The Crawfordsville Moose Lodge #6 donated articles for raffle that President Henry Carrell said they felt would bring in more money than giving a donation.

  • JUMP Takes a Hike
    Wednesday, August 16, 2017 4:00 AM
    Twenty mentors and mentees from the JUMP Program went to Shades State Park on Saturday for some fun, hiking the trails and then a picnic afterwards. 
    “It is so important for kids to get outside and enjoy nature. Too many kids stay indoors on a beautiful day and watch tv or play computer games,” Jill Hampton, the JUMP Program Manager stated. “It was a perfect day for a hike and everyone had a great time!”
    After the hike, the group sat at the picnic tables and had lunch together. “What’s nice is that we talked about the importance of gratitude and good manners. These mentors always show by example how to behave but it’s nice to have a conversation about it as well,” said Hampton.
    The JUMP Program is one of the many programs that are housed at the Montgomery County Youth Service Bureau. The Youth Service Bureau is focused on helping the youth of Montgomery County grow up to be productive adults. The JUMP program is a mentoring program where the mentors spend time one on one with a child and shows by example and conversation how to grow in a positive direction. The JUMP program began in 2005 because there was a need for children to have more encouragement and positive role models than some families are able to give. The results of having these positive role models have been shown to help youth stay out of trouble and finish school. On down the line that means they are less likely to do drugs and will provide a stable environment for their own children.
