  •  Bobcat on the north side of town, too?
    Wednesday, February 22, 2017 4:00 AM
    We know that we have a bobcat or three in the southern part of Montgomery County thanks to some eye-witness sightings and awesome trail pictures from County Councilman Mark Davidson. Might there be one of the big cats on the northern side of our community?
    One of our readers, Alice Phillips shared photos or tracks she encountered recently while walking her dog near Oak Hill Road and CR 125. The shots were taken on the edge of the field where the roads intersect. These shots show what Alice thinks could be bobcat tracks alongside deer tracks. She snapped the pics with her foot and 65-pound pooch in the frame for a little reference. She says she’s no wildlife expert, but thought that our great readers could continue to provide information and possible confirm or deny these as bobcat tracks.

    First- and third-graders at Crawfordsville and North Montgomery school districts participate each year in a National Fire Safety Program. The program is used to get fire safety information out to area students and their families. The cost of the program and its materials is about $3 per student.
    Crawfordsville Fireman John Huber has been going into the first and third grade classes and offering up fire safety tips with the help of the National Fire Safety Council, a non-profit organization that has been around since 1979.
    The first and third grades as chosen for a number of reasons. The information presented to the first grade students is more about personal safety including teaching the students the importance of stop-drop-and roll. The information presented in the third grade is geared toward fire prevention and it is hoped that this information can be taken home and shared with the rest of the family.
