Great Day for Girl Scouts!
More than 50 local Girl Scouts attended the recent Montgomery County Girl Scout World Thinking Day. The annual event took place at First United Methodist Church in Crawfordsville. The focus of the event was for Girl Scouts and Girl Guides all around the world to think of each other and give thanks and appreciation to their “sister” Girl Guides and Girl Scouts. The day began with songs and ceremonies, followed by an international bazaar of booths. Troops took part in booths representing Japan, Hong Kong, Greece, Madagascar, India and Switzerland. By visiting the booths, girls learned about different countries while sampling food, games and crafts. Founded in 1912 by Juliette Gordon Low, Girl Scouts' membership has grown from 18 members in Savannah, Ga., to 3.7 million members throughout the United States. More than 44,000 girls in 45 counties participate through the Girl Scouts of Central Indiana Council.
  • 26th Annual Wabash Moot Court Finals
    Friday, October 18, 2019 4:00 AM
    Wabash College is pleased to invite the public to the finals round of the 26th annual Wabash College Moot Court competition at 7:30 p.m., Wednesday, Oct, 23, in Salter Hall in the Fine Arts Center.
    The competition, sponsored by the Wabash College Rhetoric Department and Indianapolis Association of Wabash Men, provides a unique opportunity for undergraduates to participate in Moot Court, an activity that is a staple at law schools nation-wide. In the annual competition approximately 40 students engage in argumentation and oral advocacy by addressing a prompt drawn from an actual legal controversy.
    In the preliminary rounds all students compete twice, arguing each side of the case before judging panels consisting of Wabash College alumni attorneys as well as faculty and staff. Twelve students participate in the semi-final round where they present a single oral argument before a panel of judges consisting of members of the competition’s organizing committee and alumni. From that group, the four finalists are selected for an all-campus oral argument.

  • Forum gives candidates chance to make case
    Thursday, October 17, 2019 4:00 AM
    Crawfordsville is gearing up for another election, this one for the Crawfordsville City Council. On Nov. 5, voters will elect candidates for Wards 2 and 5, as well as both at-large spots. Wards 1, 3, and 4, as well as the Mayor and Clerk-Treasurer positions are all uncontested.
    The candidates, all of whom praised the growth the city has experienced in recent years under the leadership of Mayor Todd Barton, were as follows: for Ward 2, Ethan Hollander (I) and incumbent Scott Molin (R); for Ward 5, Joyce Burnette (D) and incumbent Stan Hamilton (R), who was invited but could not attend as he was traveling out of state; and for the two at-large seats on the Council, incumbent Andy Biddle (R), incumbent Michael Reidy (D) and Adam Hutchison (L).
    The general focus of the candidates’ answers to the questions focused on job growth, attracting new residents and businesses to Crawfordsville and building upon the improvements made in the past few years with the Stellar Grant and solar-power initiatives. Several of the candidates also focused on infrastructure improvements and public transportation initiatives as their goals for helping Crawfordsville continue to grow.
    Hollander said his focus would be on workforce development, affordable housing and improving childcare and public safety. “I think Crawfordsville already has a lot going for it. I think getting the word out that we’re already that kind of community is already our biggest challenge, but I think it’s one that we, and I, are ready for.”

    The good news? Montgomery County roads are scheduled to get almost $1 million worth of work in 2020. The bad? More cones and road construction to live with. Still, it’s not a bad price to pay considering the fact that freshly paved roads will be the outcome.
    The county was informed that a matching grant of $988,545 was awarded from the Indiana Department of Transportation for road preservation.

    In recent years, the stigmas and conversations associated with addictions and substance use disorders have changed dramatically. And substance use disorder is now categorized by the American Medical Association as a chronic disease and is not a moral failing which affects the rich, poor, young and old alike.

  • CHAMBER is CONNECTING
    Friday, October 11, 2019 4:00 AM
    The Crawfordsville / Montgomery County Chamber of Commerce was a happening place this week. A Retail Summit was held Tuesday at Fusion 54 with 35 to 40 people in attendance. A lot of interesting information was shared, such as for every business that closes its doors, five new brick and mortar ones open. And that 62 percent of retail purchases are chosen purely on the color. Those tidbits and more were all presented by seven professionals who took the time to help local business people learn how to do business better. On the right, interim director Charlie Warren welcomed everyone to the summit. On the bottom left, Lynn Ringis, President of the Indiana Leadership Academy, told everyone how important it is to have “rock star” customer service. And bottom right is Sue Lucas from Crawfordsville Main Street. She reminded everyone of the many events and promotions that go on all over Crawfordsville and Montgomery County, including Small Business Saturday and Downtown Party Night on Nov. 30! The summit was strong evidence that the Chamber is vibrant and on the move!

    This is the 4th article in a series of profiles for the kids on the waiting list to be matched with a mentor in the JUMP program. The JUMP program is part of the Montgomery County Youth Service Bureau where we match children from our community with adult volunteers. The purpose of this program is so that kids can have another caring, positive role model to spend time with them.

    As is usually the case, Dance By Deborah did a great job at a recent Platinum Dance Experience convention held at Indiana Convention Center. A total of 19 dancers took classes in jazz, tap, hip-hop, contemporary, musical theater, and improv, with teachers from California, New York, North Carolina and Tennessee. All students participated in auditions in their leveled ballrooms; petite, junior and senior.

The question of health insurance comes up from time to time. Do you think health insurance is better or worse since the government got more involved?
