    The Waveland-Brown Township Public Library has not changed much cosmetically since it opened in 1915, and it remains a community fixture. The library will hold a centennial celebration on Sept. 26 complete with live music and a book signing.

    The library was built in 1914 with matching funds from Andrew Carnegie. The town was about double the size it is now at that time, Library Director Rick Payne said. The library’s exterior and many facets of the interior are the same as when the building was completed a century ago in 1915.

    The book shelves that line the walls, the library tables and the front desk are original, longtime Library Aide Sandi Greene said. She said though the fireplace is not used anymore, the same T.C. Steele painting hangs above it that was originally hung there in 1915. Steele, a Waveland native impressionist artist, painted the picture for the library in 1915.

    “Oil and Water” will be the final film in the 2015 Green Issues series co-sponsored by the League of Women Voters and the Wabash College Lilly Library. This film will be shown Tuesday, September 8 at 7 p.m. in Korb Classroom at the Fine Arts Center at Wabash College.

    The film’s website describes the movie: “Oil and Water is the true story of two boys coming of age as they each confront one of the world’s worst toxic disasters. Hugo and David were born on opposite ends of the oil pipeline. Hugo comes to America to fight for the survival of his tribe in the Ecuadorian Amazon, while David goes to Ecuador to launch the world’s first company to certify oil as fair trade. Can Hugo become the leader his Cofan tribe so desperately wants him to be? Will David clean up one of the world’s dirtiest industries? Their journeys lead them to explore what could be a more just future, not just for the people of the Amazon, but for all people around the world born with oil beneath their feet.”

    The Montgomery County Regional Sewer District is considering how to fix problems with failing sewage mounds on U.S. 32 near I-74.

    Amy Moore from VS Engineering said that the board has to consider all possibilities for expanding the sewer to the Pilot Travel Center and Banjo Corporation on U.S. 32 before the state will look at the proposal. She said IDEM wants to make sure the plan is viable and in the works before they will review the plan for approval. “When we do a collections system we have to show IDEM a long range plan so that we are sizing them correctly,” she said. “Typically IDEM wants a waste load allocation letter and a capacity allocation letter signed by the existing plant saying that they are capable of taking that capacity.”

    The Convention and Visitors Commission and the Convention and Visitors Bureau ironed out the reserve cash balance issue that has been a topic of dissent in recent meetings. The CVC also approved a funding request.

    CVC member and County Councilman Aaron Morgan said the Bureau’s cash balance plays into their funding formula from the CVC. He said members of the CVC and VCB met in an outside meeting and determined that $35,000 was a workable reserve cash balance. This balance is lower than the previously discussed $55,000 balance that the board has worked with in the past. Morgan said that the cash balance issue could be revisited in 2016 for review.

    He also said cash balance funds should not be off limits to fund Bureau projects.

    For the 43rd straight year, the men of Wabash College will join with the Montgomery United Fund For You (MUFFY) to go door-to-door throughout Crawfordsville collecting donations for the 2015 MUFFY Campaign. This year, the Wabash / MUFFY Residential Drive will take place on Tuesday, September 8 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

    Since 1973, every freshman class of Wabash men has participated in the drive raising over $130,000 to assist area non-profits in providing valuable services to the people of Montgomery County.

    “What the Wabash students do for our annual campaign cannot be overstated,” said David Johnson, MUFFY’s Executive Director. “It’s a terrific boost for the MUFFY campaign, and it’s a wonderful example of the students and the community working together every year for a common cause.”
