Question of the Week

Walmart Optical in Crawfordsville announced the elimination of 108 jobs. What do you think this means and what will the outcome be?


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.
  • MCCF board member gives to CHS
    Thursday, April 26, 2018 4:00 AM
    When the lights at the Crawfordsville High School athletic complex go off after a ballgame, the U.S. flag is in the dark. This concerned Keegan Abney, a freshman at Crawfordsville High School, who plays both baseball and football so he decided to do something about it. With a family lineage full of U.S. military veterans, he understood the importance of honoring the flag. So, after talking with, and gaining the approval of his parents and CHS Principal Greg Hunt, he gathered quotes for the work and set out to raise the $7,300 needed. 
    Sam Hildebrand is a Montgomery County Community Foundation board member. Each year select board members have the opportunity to direct a $1,000 Community Engagement Grant to a charitable cause of their choosing. When Sam learned of Abney’s effort, he wanted to support it. With this award to Crawfordsville Community Schools, Abney has raised $3,700. This is enough to light the flagpole between the baseball field and tennis courts, but is still short of what it will take for the football field. Those inclined to contribute may send gifts to CHS, One Athenian Drive, Crawfordsville, IN 47933; be sure to note it is for “CHS Flag Lights.”
