    The Crawfordsville City Building was filled to capacity again as the Windfarms discussion continues at Montgomery County Commissioners meetings. There is great concern among some community members as to how the unheard sound frequency or “decibels” from the wind mills and the affect it can have on people. 
    Commissioner Phil Bane reached out to experts at Purdue University to explain and educate the Commissioners as well as the public as to the affects decibel limits possibly have on health. Bane again expressed the weight this decision is on the Commissioners and reassured the public that they continue to research and take every concern into consideration. 
    “We were presented with an ordinance, regarding lowering the decibel level, the 30 decibels on windfarm issues. I made a motion at that time to table the item until we got some additional input . . . we’ve heard both side of the story and I wanted to go out and get an independent person to comment on this issue”, said Bane. “This ordinance was written in 2009. We did our best to address, what we knew were issues concerning the county infrastructure . . . mainly roads, ditches, that sort of thing. The sound never even entered my mind as we approved the ordinance . . . and that’s ignorance on my part,” said Bane. “It is what it is today. I understand both sides of it. When I tabled this ordinance back a couple months ago, I wanted to deal with logic and facts and not the extreme examples from either side. Thus, I brought [professor] Kieth in to talk to us today,” said Bane.

    To recognize his work to support family caregivers in Indiana during last year’s session, AARP named State Representative Tim Brown (R-Crawfordsville) as a 2017 “Capitol Caregiver,” a bipartisan group of nearly 100 elected officials from more than 30 states. These leaders have advanced policies to support Indiana’s family caregivers, who help their parents, spouses and other loved ones live independently at home and in the community—where they want to be.
    “Older Hoosiers want the opportunity to receive care while still remaining in their homes,” said Sarah Waddle, AARP Indiana state director. “AARP Indiana thanks State Representative Brown for his leadership in passing legislation that will hopefully lead to policies that will give Hoosiers and their families more options for home and community based services.”
    HEA 1493, Long Term Care and Home Health Agencies, requested that the Division of Aging reports to the General Assembly a plan to expand home and community based services for individuals who are aged or have a disability. AARP Indiana has been one of the stakeholders providing input to help more Hoosiers receive the services and supports to remain in their homes and communities.

    On Saturday, the Judson University Choir will be returning to Russellville to present a Christian musical program. The performance begins at 4 p.m. at the Russellville Community Church. The Judson University Choir has enjoyed a long and fruitful ministry, serving as one of the primary "faces" of the university for more than 50 years, playing an especially crucial role in attracting new students to the campus in the early days of Judson College.
    Recently, the Judson University Choir shifted its focus to become a true worship-leading ensemble, whose concerts feature specific narrative arcs, opportunities for congregational participation and the use of a wide variety of instrumental accompaniment.
    Dr. Warren Anderson, a 1986 graduate of Judson,directs the choir for which he served as student business manager in 1985-86. In 2012, he became the Judson University Choir Director and the Director of Judson's Center for worship in the performing arts. There will be a love offering taken during the performance. CD's will also be available to purchase at the program.

    ** Jim and Karen (Bazzani) Zach celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary on January 13. These two youngsters eloped in the dead of night through a raging snowstorm to trade their vows somewhere in Michigan. I don’t know the rest of the story but they’ve been together a little over 18,263 days and still going strong! That’s the kind of marriage we like to read about!

  • Zach Churney talks to Kiwanis about placemaking
    Monday, January 22, 2018 4:00 AM
    Zachary Churney, a graduate of Wabash College and now the Economic and Community Development Liaison for the Metropolitan Board of Realtors (MIBOR) spoke to the Crawfordsville Kiwanis Club on Thursday 1-18-18. Zach talked about “Placemaking.”
    What is placemaking you say? Is it setting the places for dinner on the dining room table? No, it is a tool used in economic development for communities. Placemaking helps communities develop and support planning, design, and arts engagement projects that encourage and create activity, create community identity and a sense of place, improve quality of life and revitalize local economies.
    Overall, proper placemaking would make Crawfordsville a great community to better enjoy by providing social and service opportunities like Kiwanis, developing a better feel to the community through parks and other aesthetics and developing a feeling of community by developing pride in Crawfordsville and all it has to offer.

    According to the KIDS COUNT® in Indiana 2017 Data Book, the most prevalent mental disorder experienced among adolescents is depression, with 29.3 percent of Indiana students reporting feeling sad or hopeless to the point that they stopped doing some usual activities almost every day for two or more weeks in a row. Youth who experience anxiety or depression are more likely than their peers to engage in risky behaviors such as substance abuse and unprotected sexual activity and to struggle with school or work.
    The Indiana Youth Institute, Bauer Family Resources and United Way of Greater Lafayette are hosting a special training session to help caring adults in the community learn about the impact of anxiety and depression in youth. The workshop is on January 25 from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the Gymnasium at the Bauer Community Center, 330 Fountain Street in Lafayette.
    Monique Kulkarni, licensed psychologist, at the Wabash Valley Alliance will address what anxiety and depression look like in youth including the symptoms and causes, the impact of childhood anxiety and depression, and how to bridge knowledge with practice to help youth who struggle with anxiety and depression.
