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.

  • Reunion three decades in the making
    Monday, August 6, 2018 4:00 AM
    After 35 years, Gary Behling was finally able to reconnect with Regina and Martine McMillan in Belfast, Northern Ireland. Across seven countries and 10,555 miles, Behling was able to experience Europe and visit with old friends.
    Back in 1982, Behling and his former wife had taken in Regina through an organization called the Irish Children’s Fund during The Troubles.
    “I remember taking her to Six Flags Great America up in Chicago, and she saw a guard there and she put her hands up waiting to be searched because that’s the life she lived,” Behling said.
    Behling said he heard about the Irish Children’s Fund on the radio, and he decided he wanted to help out in some way.
    The Irish Children Fund was a program that allowed children caught in the conflict of Northern Ireland to stay with American families through the end of June to the end of July.
    “Of course we lived at the time with all The Troubles going on and you heard about it all the time,” Behling said. “You heard about another bombing or another person killed. There were over 3,500 people killed during this war.”
    Regina stayed with the family during the summer of 1982, and she again stayed with the family in 1983 along with her older sister Martine.
    In July, Behling and his current wife, Terri, had the opportunity to reconnect with the McMillian family in Belfast while the Behlings were vacationing in Europe.

Question of the Week:

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has cited security concerns and asked President Donald Trump to reschedule his State of the Union speech scheduled for Jan. 29, or deliver it in writing. Pelosi said the government shutdown is to blame, and of course Trump is to blame for the shutdown. Some in her own party have said this is no more than petty politics. What say you?
