Decorating For The Season

Crothersville Utility workers took advantage of the warm weather last week to put a festive feel to US 31 as they installed lighted Christmas decorations.

Crothersville’s kick-off to the holiday season—“Christmas In The ‘Ville”—will be held this Friday and Saturday and culminate with a parade and a visit from Santa Claus on Saturday.

Christmas Season Arrives This Weekend With Cookies, Carols, Parade & Santa

The Christmas season officially kicks off in Crothersville this Friday and Saturday.
There will be the traditional Cookies and Carols, featuring Santa, cookies, and singing carols at Hamacher Hall this Friday evening, Dec. 8, at 6 p.m.
This year, the annual Christmas Auction will also be included in this event. Many wonderful items are being prepared for sale for this season’s auction including homemade sweet treats and handmade gift items.
The Auction is held to raise funds for Hamacher Hall maintenance, improvements, and activities.
Hamacher Hall and the Annex are facilities of the Crothersville Historical and Cultural Arts Association, which encourages interest and participation in Crothersville’s history and in the arts.
Hamacher Hall, the former First Presbyterian Church and has a ramp for handicapped access. It is located at 211 East Howard Street in Crothersville, just east of the stoplight.
At 6 p.m. on Saturday, the Crothersville Parks Board will have a tree lighting at Bard Street Park followed by a parade at 6:30 p.m. from the park to the Crothersville-Vernon Township Fire Station where Santa will be on hand for photos with the youngsters.
Cookies and hot chocolate will be served at the fire station.

Terry Goodin Selected New Indiana House Democratic Leader

Democrats in the Indiana House of Representatives last week selected State Rep. Terry Goodin of Austin as their new leader, succeeding State Rep. Scott Pelath from Michigan City. Republicans currently hold a 70-30 majority in the Indiana House.
Goodin was first elected to the Indiana House of Representatives in 2000. He represents Indiana House District 66 in Southern Indiana representing Scott and portions of Clark and Jefferson Counties.
Goodin serves as superintendent of Crothersville Community Schools.
“I am humbled by the vote of support shown by my fellow House Democrats, and I pledge to use this post to encourage a lively debate on the issues that we feel are of greatest concern to the people who live and work in Indiana,” Goodin said. “We want all Hoosiers to feel like they have a voice and will be heard in the halls of state government.
“To my colleagues on the other side of the aisle, I want you to know that we will work with you when the cause is right, and respectfully disagree with you when we feel there is room for improvement in what you are proposing,” he continued. “There is a place to get along, even when we have different points of view.”
Republican House Speaker Brian Bosma concurred, “Unlike Washington, D.C., here in Indiana, the vast majority of successful legislation passes the General Assembly with bipartisan authorship, sponsorship and support. Hoosier legislators have a long track record of reaching across the aisle to find common ground on many issues and we look forward to continuing that work with the new minority leader, State Rep. Terry Goodin, as we head into another important legislative session.”
“We will use a healthy dialogue with the people of Indiana to form the basis for the proposals we will be advancing during the 2018 session of the General Assembly and beyond,” Goodin said. “We look forward to the challenges to come with great excitement and expectation.”
Goodin serves as superintendent of Crothersville Community Schools and is a cattle farmer. Goodin and his wife Darcie have three children: a daughter, Grace; and two sons, Berley and Brown.

My long-time friend Joe Persinger and I share a number of similarities: singing and playing guitar, a career in the newspaper business, a fondness for wine, and sharing puns & corny jokes.
