  • Celebrating the GOP
    Saturday, February 18, 2017 4:00 AM
    A grand night for the Montgomery County Republican Party was capped with a presentation from Gov. Eric Holcomb to close the annual Lincoln Day Dinner at the Crawfordsville Country Club. Gov. Holcomb sat down for a one-on-one interview in front of the crowd with Montgomery County Republican Party Chair Suanne Milligan. Milligan asked questions ranging from Holcomb’s upbringing to his approach to tackle the drug epidemic in our state. Holcomb also had the opportunity to speak on continuing Indiana’s holding as one of the top economic development states in the country.
    “We work to have companies look at America first and then look right to Indiana second,” he said. “We have a great tax climate and reasonable regulatory climate. It’s important to focus on improving the way we deal with our infrastructure and developing our workforce.”
    Holcomb also earned the large crowd’s approval with statistics about the strength of the republican party from local government through the state level and into the federal level.

    Jordan is an 8-year-old boy who lives in a single parent home with a younger sibling in the north part of the county. His mother says Jordan is outgoing and likes to help out around the house. He’s very good at drawing / painting and at math but needs to work on his speech and his reading. She said he loves to go to the park, ride bikes (even though he currently doesn’t have one) and play with toys.
    Jordan said he likes school and his favorite subject is math. Jordan would like to be a firefighter when he grows up and if he could go anywhere in the world it would be to see a fire station. Jordan likes to walk, go to parks, fish, swim, bake and cook, watch movies, do craft projects, draw, pet care and visit museums. His favorite place to eat is McDonald’s and Burger King.

    The Women’s Legacy Fund of the Montgomery County Community Foundation is accepting grant proposals for 2017.
    The Women’s Legacy Fund comprises women who are committed to making a positive impact on the lives of women and girls in Montgomery County. To accomplish this goal, each member of the fund makes a gift to the Montgomery County Community Foundation, pooling these gifts to increase the impact of their efforts. One third of the gift goes into an endowed fund that will forever benefit girls and women in Montgomery County. The other two-thirds are committed to a grant pool, allowing the women to make an annual grant to one or more organizations in Montgomery County that benefits women and girls. Eligible organizations must have a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) status. The Women’s Legacy Fund has made 20 grants to Montgomery County organizations over the last eight years that have ranged from $500 to $7,950.

    It sure appears that Montgomery County is home to some bobcats. Besides the info we ran this week from County Councilman Mark Davidson, we also had other readers tell us they’ve seen the large cats around, including Linda Timmons. Thanks to everyone who let us know – and if you see one or get a photo, please give Editor Neil a shout. You can reach him at neil@thepaper24-7.com.

    The City of Crawfordsville and Crawfordsville High School Sunshine Society were chosen to participate in this year’s My Community, My Vision program. The program is a partnership with Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority and Ball State University. The program was developed so that young people in Indiana could pursue their dreams in their hometowns, aligning the program nicely with the city’s vision of the Stellar Communities program. Additionally, the work of the local collaboration will be included in the city’s updated Comprehensive Plan where appropriate.
    The students will hold a public meeting to present their vision on Wednesday at 6 p.m. at the Crawfordsville Commerce Center on the third floor of the Chase Bank building downtown. The will present the plan to the Lt. Governor later this spring. The local event will allow the students to work on their presentation and get community input.

    St. Elizabeth Hospice is in the process of scheduling training classes for new volunteers to work with hospice patients and their families in our area.
    Volunteers provide non-medical services to hospice patients and their families that may include a break for caregivers, patient companionship, listening and emotional support, basic bedside comfort measures or assisting with shopping, yard or household chores. Volunteers can be a meaningful support for families during this difficult time. Volunteers are needed for the following counties: Benton, Carroll, Clinton, Fountain, Jasper, Montgomery, Newton, Tippecanoe, Warren and White.

  •  On schedule, on budget.
    Friday, February 17, 2017 4:00 AM
    A couple dozen folks got a look at the inside of the new emergency department at Franciscan Health Crawfordsville Thursday and The Paper was right there for the status update. Members of the ER staff, patient access / registration staff and radio staff got their first glimpse of the bones of the new department. Most importantly, they were reassured that the project was on budget and on schedule.
    Wall-framing coated in insulation was painted into a picture of a finished product as Project Manager Construction Pam Handy and Director of Facilities Greg Harvey led the tour.
    Starting at the front entrance, the attendees saw framework for the reception area and registration desks on the northwest entrance. When renovations are finished, this will be the patient entrance to the hospital visitors will go through the current main entrance and directed to the appropriate part of the hospital. All patients will be received through the new entrance.

  • Right where he wants to be . . .
    Friday, February 17, 2017 4:00 AM
    Scott Bowling is in his third year as Superintendent of Crawfordsville Community Schools and is right where he wants to be. 
    “There are ups and downs but I love it,” he said. “This is what I aspired to and I am enjoying doing it.”
    Bowling spent four years as Assistant Superintendent under Dr. Kathy Steele before she retired. A graduate of Northview High School in Brazil, Bowling didn’t always have his sights set on educating. 
    “I graduated from Rose-Hulman with an engineering degree. If you would have talked to me when I was 18 I didn’t know what I wanted to do,” he said. “Teaching was high on the list, but I got my degree and worked at Bethlehem Steel.
    Music and even the ministry were other options for Bowling.
