Athenas get active in kitchen
It is not typical for high school students to cook a healthy meal for their families, but that's exactly what the Athenas of Crawfordsville High School intended to do Wednesday.

The after-school club participated in their "G-BOM Cookoff" event starting with a healthy food shopping trip at Kroger. Each girl was given $15 and then was challenged with creating a meal out of G-BOMs: greens, beans, onions and mushrooms, as well as other ingredients.

Several adult mentors helped with the outing, including four female members of the Wabash College community. They served as "food consultants" for the students.

The grand total spent by the ten girls was $130; $20 below budget.

After the shopping trip, the girls were instructed to write down whatever recipe they made and bring it to the next club meeting.

Heroic trooper a finalist
Senior Trooper Ryan Winters, of the Lafayette State Police Post, has been named as a finalist for the IACP (International Association of Chiefs of Police)/Motorola Trooper of the Year for the North Central region. Winters was picked from applications submitted to the North Central region by a majority of votes of IACP Colonels. The other regions are North Atlantic, Southern and Mountain Pacific. The four regional finalists will receive an all expense paid trip to be honored at the 2014 IACP/Motorola Trooper of the Year banquet in Alexandria, VA on March 27, where one of them will be named as the 2014 IACP Motorola Trooper of the Year.

Senior Trooper Winters was nominated by Lafayette District Commander, Lieutenant Thomas McKee for his actions on April 10, 2014, when he was leaving his house to begin his regular shift just before 7 a.m. As he got in his patrol car, he noticed the house at 226 N. Walnut Street was on fire. Knowing that the residents of that house were elderly with limited mobility, Trooper Winters notified Regional Dispatch Center 1 (RDC 1) of the location of the fire, so that the fire department could be in route. He then went to the residence himself.

Robotics moving forward
Two robotics teams from Crawfordsville High School built their way to victory at the state competition held in Lafayette over the weekend, qualifying to move forward to the regional tournament.

Team TOBOR, made up of juniors and seniors, and team Botman, made up of freshmen and sophomores, will both move on to the regional, which is scheduled for March 26-28 in Iowa. Team Plumber, which is made up of first-year robotics members, performed admirably according to robotics coach Darrin Wilcoxson, but just missed qualifying.

If the teams do well at the regional competition, they will qualify for the world championship in St. Louis in April. "I would say they've got a good chance to winning a spot at the world championships," Wilcoxson said.

Golf course brought to the fore
Mayor Todd Barton has committed to taking another swing at saving the municipal golf course.

Effective March 1, Rita Hamm will begin serving as course superintendent. Current course superintendent Terry Kendricks has been performing the duties of this role as well as those of grounds manager. After Hamm becomes superintendent, Kendricks will serve only as the grounds manager.

"Mr. Kendricks has a great deal of experience and the quality of our course receives many compliments from those who play it. He has also served as Superintendent for the last several years. This left him trying to balance managing the business operations along with the duties of grounds maintenance," Barton wrote in a press release about the reorganization. "He will now be able to devote his attention to outside facilities."

Previous to her new position, Hamm served the city as the Crawfordsville Parks Director for more than 25 years, directed the growth of the course from nine to 18 holes and managed the golf course for three years, according to Barton.

Wabash College to perform award-winning play
Three young men waste away hours in a back alley littered with trash and broken dreams in Annie Baker's vivid, award-winning play The Aliens, which will be performed at Wabash College Wednesday through Saturday at 8 p.m. in the Experimental Theater.

Director Jessie Mills brings to life this deeply moving character study with the help of two veteran Wabash performers - senior Joe Mount and junior Donovan Whitney - and a relative newcomer in senior Ryan Horner. Baker's difficult script brings out unexpected performances from all three.

Mount, who a year ago stunned audiences as Macbeth, plays the drifting and damaged KJ, who munches donuts from a bag while drinking laced tea that helps him forget who and where he is.

Horner, the talented Wabash distance runner, plays Jasper, who is a chain-smoking, guitar-playing, would-be novelist. Jasper, together with KJ, once formed a band that eventually became known as The Aliens - though the play's title might well describe who these young men are in a society moving faster than they are.
