How’s your brain work? An event a week from today will help kids of all ages better understand that. The Carnegie Museum of Montgomery County is ready for its tenth annual Brain Day, “The Science of Brains”, on Saturday, Oct. 27, from 1 to 4 p.m. This family-friendly event focuses on fun, educational, hands-on activities for kids. This year, visitors will get to see real brains up close, create a map of their own brain, listen to neuron activity, and much more. All activities are free and open to the public. Since it is Halloween weekend, there will be some candy, and kids of all ages are welcome to come in costume and take photos with the museum’s photo booth props. 
Brain Day is a partnership between the Carnegie Museum and Wabash College psychology and biology departments. Wabash professors of neuroscience Dr. Heidi Walsh, Dr. Karen Gunther, and Dr. Neil Schmitzer-Torbert will be at the museum, to share cool tricks and tools of the trade and also will have activities for testing visitors’ brains.
The Carnegie Museum, located at 222 South Washington Street in downtown Crawfordsville, has a street level entrance. The museum does have an elevator and is wheelchair and stroller accessible. The museum is open Wednesday through Saturday from 10 am to 5 pm and other times by appointment. 
Question of the Week:

Our county commissioners voted on compensation for themselves recently. Currently, the commissioners are paid just under $19,000 and gave themselves a 10.3 percent raise to $21,000. In comparison, Putnam County commissioners make about $24,600, Clinton County is a bit above $23,000. Much larger Boone County is over $30,000 and much smaller Fountain County is $15,500. The two Indiana counties closest in size to Montgomery County, Cass and LaGrange, are at approximately $16,500 and $24,500 respectively. In a quick check around Indiana, commissioners were paid from a range of less than $10,000 annually to more than $60,000. Given the raise to $21,000, what do you think of the plan for our commissioners?

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
