Crothersville Man Dies, Wife, Two Others Injured in Saturday Crash

A two vehicle head-on collision on US 31 shortly before 6 p.m. Saturday claimed the life of a 89-year-old Crothersville man and left his 83-year-old wife seriously injured.
According to Indiana State Police Trooper Michael Thiron, a 2004 Chevrolet Cavalier was being driven south on US 31 near Farmington Road (CR 275N) by Herbert Hollin when his vehicle crossed the centerline into the path of a 2008 Chevrolet Trailblazer being driven by Jeffery Haag, 58, of Seymour. The vehicles collided head-on in the northbound lanes of US 31.
Hollin was transported to Schneck Medical Center where he succumbed as a result of his injuries. His wife, Fern Hollin, a passenger in the front seat, sustained serious injuries in the crash. She was transported to Schneck Medical Center and later flown to St. Vincent’s Hospital in Indianapolis for treatment of her injuries.
Haag was transported by family members to Schneck Medical Center for treatment of his injuries. The front seat passenger in his vehicle, Sheila Haag, 54, was transported to an Indianapolis area hospital for treatment of her injuries.
As a result of the collision, US 31 was closed for approximately one hour for crash investigation and cleanup.
Alcohol and drugs are not believed to be factors in the crash, police reported. Investigators believe a possible medical condition may have led to Hollin’s vehicle crossing the centerline. The investigation is ongoing.

CPD Asst. Chief Resigns To Take Job With Sheriff’s Dept.

J.L. McElfresh

Crothersville Assistant Chief of Police Jerry J.L. McElfresh II announced this week that he is leaving the local department to become a deputy with the Jackson County Sheriff’s Department.
He has served as an officer with the Crothersville Police since April 2016. His last official day is May 30.
Prior to being hire as a local enforcement officer, McElfresh served as a reserve officer with the Brownstown Police Department and worked court security for the Jackson County Sheriff’s Department.

Like Having A Church Pitch-In Sinner

by Curt Kovener

(Since we are dealing with some changes in our publishing life, this is an encore column from the Curt Comments archives.)
We make our share of boo-boos in the newspaper industry.
But unlike other businesses, government or education, when we err it is done in a public forum for everyone to see. No executive sessions, no cover-ups, no privileged information. We err for all to see. Our mistakes have no way of being covered up, sugar coated, or downplayed like in other sectors.
Mrs. Lewis, my high school English teacher, probably just looks down from above rolls her eyes and shakes her head. “I tried my best to teach him better,” she might be saying.
But there are other forums where grammar, dangling modifiers, and misplaced participles (or is it misplaced modifier and dangling participle?) occasionally crop up. Church bulletins are another source for well-meaning, unintentional gaffs.
I want to be very clear: none of these ‘oopsies’ came from any of our local churches. I don’t need to be placed on a prayer list or ridiculed from the pulpit.
These church bulletin blunders are offered as evidence that God does, indeed, have a sense of humor.
•Don’t let worry kill you. Let the church help.
•While the Pastor is on vacation, massages can be given to the church secretary.
•The ladies of the church have cast off clothing of all kinds and they may be seen in the church basement every Friday,
•A new loudspeaker system has been installed in the church. It was given by one of the members in honor of his wife.
•Weight Watchers will meet at 7 p.m. Please use the large double doors at the side entrance of the church.
•The choir invites any member who enjoys it to join the choir in sinning on Sunday.
•Irving Bettson and Jessie Smith were married on Oct. 24 in the church. So ends a friendship that began in their school days.
•The Ladies Bible Study will be held Thursday morning at 10. All ladies are invited to lunch in the Fellowship Hall after the B.S.
•At the evening service tonight, the sermon topic will be “What is Hell?” Come early and listen to our choir practice.
