Small Town Helping A Smaller Town

The community of Crothersville in southeast Jackson County had police officers and an abundance of cars after purchase of several new Ford Explorers last year.
The community of Clifford in northcentral Bartholomew County, about 36 miles north of Crothersville, had a part-time police officer but no police car. There was no money in the budget so the officer’s private vehicle was used for patrolling.
After learning of Clifford’s plight, the Crothersville Town Council approved an inter-governmental transfer of a 2009 Ford Crown Victoria that was slated for the auction block.
Crothersville Chief of Police Brent Turner read about Clifford’s problem and suggested to the council that giving away the surplus police vehicle to a community who could use it.
“Clifford’s population is only about 235 people so they don’t bring in that much in taxes,” said Turner. “We had cars that were going to be auctioned so we took the one in best shape, got lettering and lights installed at no cost, and helped out the (Bartholomew County) community.”

At right, Clifford Town Board President Danny James accepts the keys to the 2009 Ford police vehicle from local Chief of Police Brent Turner along with Crothersville Town Council President Danieta Foster and Councilman Chad Wilson.

Derby Dinner’s ‘Mama Mia!’ A Must-See

Getting their 1970’s girl band back together during Derby Dinner’s musical production of ‘Mama Mia’ are Mandi Elkins Hutchins as Tanya, Jillian Prefach as Donna, and Elizabeth Loos as Rosie.

A Review
by Becky Killian
Yet another Broadway hit has made it to the Derby Dinner Playhouse in Clarksville with the venue’s stunning production of ‘Mama Mia!’
The musical features the enduringly popular music of the Swedish pop/dance group ABBA as it tells the tale of a young woman who’s about to get married but wants to solve a mystery before she walks the aisle by discovering the identity of her father.
The young woman, Sophie Sheridan – portrayed by Kayla Eilers – sneaks a peek at her mom’s diary where she gleans the names of three fatherly prospects. She invites them to her wedding then is stunned when all three arrive. The only one more surprised is her mother, Donna Sheridan, who is played by Jillian Prefach.
Sophie thought she’d know which man her father was as soon as she saw him – but it doesn’t turn out to be that easy to figure out who should walk her down the aisle.
The paternal candidates are Bill Austin (Matthew Brennan), Harry Bright ((Bobby Conte), and Sam Carmichael (Stuart May). As Sophie becomes reacquainted with the men, she’s reminded of their charms that seduced her long ago – stirring romantic notions she long-ago abandoned when faced with the responsibilities of single motherhood and the challenges of building a business.
The story celebrates family, friends, and love punctuated by energetic dance numbers that will leave you breathless. Songs include “Dancing Queen”, “Money, Money, Money”, “Take a Chance on Me,” and “The Winner Takes It All.” Don’t be surprised to see audience members singing along with the hits. It will leave you happily humming for days after the casts’ final bow.
‘Mama Mia!’ features music and lyrics from Benny Andersson and Bjorn Ulvaeus. ABBA was active between 1972 and 1982 and is considered one of the most popular international groups of all time.
‘Mama Mia!’is directed by Lee Buckholz with choreography by Heather Paige Folsom and musical direction by Scott Bradley. Pre-show entertainment is provided by The Footnotes, who perform a selection by Rodgers and Hammerstein as a preview to another upcoming musical at the Clarksville stage.
Performances of ‘Mama Mia!’, which include evening shows as well as Wednesday and Sunday matinees, run through Sunday, April 8. To order tickets, call 812-288-8281 or visit

All Good Things Must Come To An End

by Curt Kovener

Many times in my youthful misbehavior my Mom or Dad, Grandpa & Grandma, Gramp & Granny (and even my Aunt Clarice) would admonish me that they would make me improve my behavior if it was the last thing they did.
So I then behaved…at lease when they were around.
But what are some of those other ‘last things’ that have occurred in this column’s readers’ lifetime?
•The last year that Sony made Betamax VCRs (which battled VHS for market share in the 1980s) was 2002. For our more youthful readers, video cassette tapes are what we watched before DVDs.
•The last time a gallon of gas cost less than $1: March 1999 when the US average was 97¢.
•Last song that Elvis Presley performed in public: ‘Can’t Help Falling In Love’. It was in Indianapolis at the now razed Market Square Arena on June 26, 1977.
•The last state to abolish flogging as a legal punishment was Delaware in 1972. (Glad I never visited Delaware in my youth.)
•Napoleon’s last descendant was Jerome Napoleon Bonaparte. He died in 1945 after tripping over his dog’s leash.
•Jimmy Stewart’s last file role was the voice of a dog named Wylie Burp in ‘An American Tail: Fieval Goes West’ in 1991.
•Ethel Merman’s last film: ‘Airplane’ in 1980. She played a shell-shocked soldier who believed he was…Ethel Merman.
•The last time Frank Sinatra appeared on TV was in 1989 when he played himself in an episode of ‘Who’s The Boss?’
•The last cow to graze at the White House was Pauline the Holstein who belonged to President William Howard Taft in 1913.
•Last word spoken by Oxford professor Joseph Wright who edited the English Dialect Dictionary: “Dictionary”.
•The last US president with a beard: Indiana’s Benjamin Harrison, who left office in 1893.
•Last American veteran of World War I: Frank W. Buckles, who lived to be 110. He died in 2011. His advice for a long life: “When you start to die, don’t.”
And making full circle to our first example…
•The last Blockbuster Video rental (it was in Hawaii on Nov. 9, 2013): ‘This Is The End.’
