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.

  • Chargers of the Month
    Thursday, May 13, 2021 4:00 AM
    This is the continuation of a feature where The Paper shares good news about a person or group of people. Don’t we all focus too much on the negatives? It’s our goal to take this space on occasion and focus on the positives. Today we’re happy to highlight North Montgomery students. Each month at North, teachers nominate their Chargers of the Month. These students represent "The Charger Family" spirit.

    Life can be challenging for each of us at times! Add to that the components of a pandemic, and the effects can be even more significant. The National Institute of Mental Health reported just last month that studies conducted by the CDC and other entities found a significant rise in mental health issues after the onslaught of the COVID-19 Pandemic.

    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!

  • New law protects in-person worship during public emergencies
    Saturday, May 8, 2021 4:00 AM
    Hoosiers' right to gather for religious worship services during future public emergencies is now protected in state law. 
    During the early months of the pandemic, in-person religious services were prohibited, which cut constituents off from critical services and connections. Senate Enrolled Act 263, which I supported, prohibits the state or other government bodies from restricting the right to worship in person, classifying religious gatherings as essential.

  • Fountain back up and beautiful
    Tuesday, May 4, 2021 4:00 AM
    The fountain at the Marie Canine Plaza is now working and looking great. The fountain has been shut down since late October to clean and fix damages after someone put something in the fountain that resulted in bubbles overflowing.

    (Family Features) Many childhood memories include sitting on mom's lap and reading stories together. This year, you can show your mother how much those memories mean to you by giving her a Mother's Day gift that harkens back to those special moments spent together.
    Whether your mom devotes time each week to read the latest best-selling novel or can only find a few moments every now and then to spend some quality time reading, there are plenty of thoughtful options available for nearly every mother regardless of how often she settles into a comfy chair with a good book.

Question of the Week:

Facebook upheld the ban on Donald Trump recently, although the review board asked the company to better define its standards – opening the possibility of a return by Trump at some point. Facebook had earlier banned Trump, saying his comments played a role in the January Capitol Hill riot. In the meantime, Congesswoman Maxine Waters and NBA star LeBron James have said things that some argue are more inflammatory. James showed a picture of a policeman with the ominous words, “You’re next.” And Waters reportedly said this to an angry crowd: “We’ve got to get more confrontational. We’ve got to make sure that they know that we mean business.” Our question this week is, who exactly should be banned – if anyone – from the social media giant.
