Sommer Metalcraft is holding an on-site job fair today for employees who will soon be displaced. Crawfordsville Mayor Todd Barton and Crawfordsville / Montgomery County Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Rick Hernandez both confirmed that the company is planning to close its doors by the end of the month.
The local operations were purchased by a larger company and is no longer locally owned, said Hernandez. He said that Sommer has more than 100 employees. Hernandez said that he was unsure what the plans were for the facility and property, which he said he thought was still locally owned. He said that Economic Development officials would likely work with the owners of the property.
Question of the Week:

We’re always looking, searching, updating, innovating (that’s all the adjectives we could think of for now) on ways to make the Little Paper That Could better. For now, we want to know what is the one thing you would most like to see in The Paper on a regular basis? Yes, it’s a long list but we are asking you to only pick one.

EXHIBIT: Step Into the Painting: Indiana History & Culture Through Art July 21 – Oct. 27, 2018 With an exciting new twist on learning about daily living in Indiana in the 1800’s and early 1900’s, the Haan Museum of Indiana Art invites guests to view art in a different way. The Museum selected paintings by some of Indiana’s most important artists, showing people engaged in a variety of activities from Indiana’s past, such as feeding chickens; playing the piano and cello; the circus coming; a child helping her mother do laundry; girls carrying buckets of milk; and Indians playing the “Moccasin Game”. Historic art can teach us a lot about our past, and the exhibition at the Haan Museum provides an opportunity to feel what it was like to live in Indiana before our grandparents were born. Admission: $10 for adults; $5 for ages 5-17. Find more details at Museum Hours: Wednesday - Saturday, 1-4 PM
