King and his court
Justin Monger, right, plant manager from Cargill won the title of 2016 Pie King during Valero’s recent United Way and MUFFY campaign drive. . I will let you guess which one he is in the picture. Mark Brown, left, Valero plant manager, also took part. The contest helped Valero surpass its goal of $27,000 by raising $29,102! With the company match, that makes the grand total $43,653. Employees were able to designate where they would like their donation to go.

    Financial aid professionals will be volunteering at Ivy Tech in Crawfordsville at 2 p.m. on Feb. 12 to help college-bound students and their families open the door to financial aid during College Goal Sunday. The free program assists Indiana students in filing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA form is required for students to be considered for federal and state grants, scholarships and student loans at most colleges, universities and vocational/technical schools nationwide. The FAFSA MUST be filed by March 10 to be eligible for Indiana financial aid. College Goal Sunday is so important since completing this required form correctly and by the deadline is sometimes perceived to be complicated and time consuming. In less than one afternoon at a College Goal Sunday event, students and their families can get free help and file the form online.

    Thanks to our community and our supporters, 2016 was another year the Youth Service Bureau was able to continue serving our youth and community. We continued to inspire, advocate, provide restorative justice, educate, mentor, provide safety and give back to the community through our 11 programs.
    In 2016 we saw an incredible increase in the number of youth served through our Court Appointed Special Advocates program. This program serves children who are victims of abuse and neglect. We had a 20 percent increase in the number of children served. This unfortunately corresponds with an increasing rate of child abuse in our community, 12.2 of every 1,000 children under 18 are victims of abuse or neglect in Montgomery County (Kids Count Data for 2016). In addition to the CASA program our Child Abuse Prevention Council is doing all they can to spread awareness and information to help combat the issue of child abuse. In 2016, we educated 1,953 elementary age students on personal safety and child abuse prevention. Additionally we completed four child abuse prevention events for local churches and organizations. The council also presented two community education events free to the public. Despite all of these efforts, the child abuse problem is a growing issue.

  • Hospital promoting women’s health
    Saturday, January 21, 2017 4:00 AM
    Franciscan Health and Franciscan Physician Network are encouraging women to be screened for cervical cancer.
    Each year in the United States, nearly 13,000 women are diagnosed with cervical cancer, and more than 4,000 die as a result. The disease takes an even greater toll globally as the vast majority of cervical cancers occur in low-income countries. Like most cancers, an early diagnosis - typically revealed in Pap screenings - followed by a targeted treatment plan saves lives. When detected at an early stage, the 5-year survival rate for women with invasive cervical cancer is 92 percent.

    Apparently our Question of the Week on our website has been a hit the last few weeks. We asked about the road that is unfinished near Walmart and we asked about the recent changes in economic development. What’s the question this week? Sorry, no cheating here. You’ll have to surf over to www.thepaper24-7.com and scroll down the home page to find out.

  • Devoted to service . . .
    Friday, January 20, 2017 4:00 AM
    Joe Ellis spends his days helping veterans. As the county’s Veterans Service Officer, Ellis is assigned the duty of helping those who have served receive the benefits they have earned. It’s work that he is passionate about and it’s work that is a little different than his 35 years spent in the hardware industry. 
    Ellis was born in Crawfordsville at the Old Culver Hospital, but then started a journey around the world with his parents as an Air Force child. He found his way back to Crawfordsville in 1987 when he started with Ace Hardware. He was a district manager for the hardware chain, responsible for 40 stores. When Ellis retired in 2010, he and wife Sandy took some time to themselves.
    “We first remodeled our house,” Ellis said. “After a while we took a trip. We wanted to see our son Mark and his wife Nickie who were living in New Jersey at the time. We also wanted to tour New England. It ended up taking three weeks.”
