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.
  • By The Numbers
    Monday, September 27, 2021 4:00 AM
    By The Numbers, a look at what’s in the news . . . by the numbers. These are just numbers, not suggestions that they mean more or less than what they are. We do not suggest that one number is connected to another. These are simply facts with no extraneous details, bias or slanted reporting. To borrow (and perhaps mangle a bit) a quote from legendary fictional detective Joe Friday, it’s just the numbers, ma’am!

  • Last Lunch on Plaza
    Tuesday, September 21, 2021 4:00 AM
    Beautiful downtown Crawfordsville was the setting for the monthly (and final one for the year) Lunch on the Plaza last week. The wonderful music was provided by Maria Cristina Monsalve and lunch came from Greek's Pizzeria. A good crowd gathered at the Marie Canine Plaza. Of course all the Lunch on the Plaza events are courtesy of the wonderful folks at Main Street. Many thanks to Sue Lucas and Co.

    COVID has changed everything. Those fall festivals that are such favorites with Hoosiers are no exception. Most were canceled in 2020. Some still are. But some of them are back and better than ever.
    The State of Indiana ranked the Top 10 Fall Festivals and The Paper proudly presents them as people make decisions on how to best go and still be safe. Enjoy!

  • Will retiring early from work affect my Social Security?
    Saturday, September 18, 2021 4:00 AM
    Dear Rusty: I stopped working at age 55, well before my full retirement age of 66 years and 10 months. I had over 35 years working prior to retiring from work. I don't intend to start collecting Social Security until my full retirement age. Will I be penalized for all those years between when I stopped working and my full retirement age?
    Signed: Planning Ahead

  • Redistricting and the spoils of victory
    Saturday, September 18, 2021 4:00 AM
    I called it “Frankendistrict,” the old 4th Congressional District that existed between 2001 and 2011.
    “Frankendistrict” was drawn by Indiana House Democrats, the scraps from the other eight districts stitched to make an ugly ninth that gave the concept of “Gerrymandering” a bad, baaaad name. It straddled western Indiana, stretching from three counties south of Lake Michigan to three counties north of the Ohio River.

  • Welcome R.P. H&H
    Thursday, September 16, 2021 4:00 AM
    The good folks who used to be Big R and then became Stock+Field are now known as R.P. Home & Harvest. You may recall that the previous owners closed the doors here in Crawfordsville and across the entire chain.

Question of the Week:

U.S. Sen. Mike Braun of Indiana is in his first term. He was recently interviewed about the proposal to raise the national debt. In part, he said that the country was $18 trillion in debt when he took office and is now $28 trillion in debt – and he laid the blame on both parties. What do you think of Braun’s comments?
