    Doctors told David Bowers that he had a pretty low chance of surviving the severe burns he sustained in an on-the-job accident in 1999. Sixteen years later he and his wife wrote a book about hope and staying positive in the face of tragedy. That book is due to be released at a signing on Oct. 1.

    “If you only fix the things on the surface what might you have in 20 years? What might you have when the shininess of all the new things wears off?” Mayor Todd Barton rhetorically asked the crowd gathered at Crawfordsville’s Stellarbration Friday morning at Marie Canine Plaza.

    Dementia can creep in without those closest to person noticing, at least for a while. Dementia has no cure and has limited research on effective treatments. Franciscan St. Elizabeth Hospital—Crawfordsville held a lunch talk Thursday on how to spot dementia in loved ones.
    The featured speaker at the event was Dr. Christopher Cobbs, M.D., who is a psychiatrist with Franciscan Physician Network and Medical Director of Franciscan St. Elizabeth Health's behavioral health program, including Generations at Crawfordsville.

    Traffic flow in the city may be improving soon thanks to a new proposed right-turn lane.

    The county commissioners discussed the plan at their meeting Monday before voting to accept it. The plan specifies that the city will donate a portion of land at the southeast corner of the intersection of U.S. Highway 231 and Market Street to the Department of Transportation. INDOT would then construct a right-turn lane onto East Market from northbound 231.

    The Montgomery County Convention Visitors Commission had no troubles approving its first item of new business. When it came time to handle the commission's budget, though, things did not go as smoothly.

    Attorney Dan Taylor explained that because of some misunderstandings, the budget had not yet been approved by the county council. The budget is scheduled to be on the agenda for the next council meeting.

    A lack of a budget was also an issue for Destination Development of Montgomery County. Taylor explained that he had filled out a claim in January, but since there is no budget, "they can't write checks," he said.

    The commission also welcomed a new board member, but he is anything but new.
