Covid Cancels Crothersville Red, White & Blue Festival

The June 11-13 Crothersville Red, White & Blue Festival has been cancelled, according to festival director Erica Gorbett.
“The Crothersville RWB Festival organizing board had no choice but to cancel the 2020 Red, White and Blue Festival due to the governor’s 5 stage plan,” she said.
While Governor Eric Holcomb’s plan to re-open Indiana for business amid the COVID-19 pandemic, festivals, fairs, music venues and conventions are among the events which must remain closed through June, according to Holcomb.
“Although the festival is cancelled, we still have our annul Red, White and Blue BBQ to look forward too,” said Gorbett. “This year’s BBQ will be September 18 & 19 and a lot of the events planned for the festival will be hosted at the BBQ.”
Keep checking the Crothersville Times and our Facebook Page – Crothersville Red, White and Blue Festival for more updates, she said.

Crothersville Police Arrest Local Pair For Drugs, Neglect Of Child

Two Crothersville residents face drug and neglect of a child charges after Crothersville Police assisted Indiana Parole officers with serving a warrant at a mobile home park on Rider Avenue last Wednesday afternoon, May 6.
According to Chief of Police Matt Browning, he and officer Mike Weiler were contacted by Indiana Parole agents wanting the CPD help with the parole violation arrest of Christopher Axsom, 38, of the 400 block of Rider Avenue.
According to Browning, when officers walked to the front porch of the mobile, they could smell marijuana.
When Axsom answered the door parole agent Jon Hill placed him under arrest for parole violation. Authorities took him inside the dwelling where a 9-year-old year girl was observed in the living room.
Parole officers asked where the girl’s mother, Niki Wilson, age 28, was Axsom indicated that she was in the bathroom.
When the woman came out of the bathroom, police had the three sit on the living room couch. Parole officers went into the couple’s bedroom and began searching for the drugs that they smelled.
Browning said that parole officers called him into the bedroom where they had found a plastic magnetic box found behind the TV in the bedroom containing two plastic baggies with a crystal substance which Axsom confirmed was methamphetamine.
An additional search of the couple’s bedroom located a plastic bag of green plant material, later confirmed to be marijuana.
Browning summoned Indiana State Police Trooper Tia Hunt to the residence to search Wilson. As the state trooper began patting down the woman, she became verbally abusive to the trooper and uncooperative in the search, the Crothersville Police Chief said.
The nine-year-old girl was released to the custody of her maternal grandmother, Browning said.
Axsom was charged with parole violation, neglect of dependent, possession of methamphetamine, possession of marijuana, and possession of a device to interfere with a drug or alcohol test.
Wilson was charged with neglect of dependent, possession of methamphetamine, possession of marijuana, and resisting law enforcement.
Both were incarcerated in Jackson County Jail shortly after 4:30 p.m.

Buying Local Means Advertising Too, Even In A Pandemic

by Curt Kovener
Irony: (n) a state of affairs or event that seems deliberately contrary to what one expects.
Hypocrisy: (n) the practice of claiming to have moral standards or beliefs to which one’s own behavior does not conform; pretense.
When is it irony and when is it hypocrisy? Those of us in local media want to know.
Take the plunge into internet social media, Facebook in particular, and you’re likely to encounter posts from area small businesses you know urging you to “shop locally.”
But here’s the thing: Facebook isn’t local.
It’s a gigantic corporation reaping billions of dollars in revenue by collecting individuals’ personal data and selling it to marketing companies. And when a local small business uses Facebook to advertise —because it’s “free” — it’s not shopping locally.
In fact, it is actively undermining other local small businesses like the newspaper you are reading. We are not a part of a chain, we are not owned by some out-of-state corporation. We are a vintage smalltown Mom & Pop business. We are local. Unlike other area media, we practice what we preach. You won’t find us on Facebook. You can read some of our weekly news at www.crothersvilletimes.com.
Advertising “shop local” on Facebook is akin to flocks of chickens supporting Colonel Sanders or Hobby Lobby encouraging us to “Buy American” (for the uninitiated, Hobby Lobby gets the vast majority of the crafts and trinkets they sell from China…a Communist country to those “Patriotic Americans” reading).
The fundamental fallacy of using social media like Facebook for advertising is the notion that it is “free.”
It is not. It’s just that the transaction doesn’t involve dollars and cents.
It involves data and algorithms and personal information that can be mined and mined and mined. The real costs are hidden, but they are there and they are indeed real.
We would also argue that —an incredibly rich media environment—social media only deliver one tiny piece of the pie.
In the larger context of the internet, cable TV, land-based and satellite radio, and scores of print products, it’s just one sliver.
And, again, it’s not local.
Want to support local businesses? We do too. And we want you to, as well.
But the only way to do that —free of irony or hypocrisy— is to include local media in your support as well. Look through the pages of this newspaper and you will see the local business that truly support a “shop local” philosophy with their advertising dollars. Maybe you don’t have a local business. You can still “shop local” by subscribing.
A small business advertising its services on the mega-corporation Facebook and encouraging you to “shop local”: Is it irony or hypocrisy? You decide.
