  • Scarf tying and more!
    Monday, February 27, 2017 10:12 PM
    Becky Hankins recently held at event to help teach cancer patient through a comfortable, elegant alternative to wigs and hats for those coping with hair loss from treatment. She also teaches make-up and beauty tips. She said she decided to have a scarf-tying class after inquiries from several patiens wanting to learn. She said she knew she would need a good amount of time for the two-hour class to go over all the styles and how to create them. Along with a great deal of fun, laughs and knowledge, the ladies left with a beautiful gift bag full of cosmetics donated by Merle Norman, Mary Kay and other beauty lines. Pictured, Hankins demonstrates scarf tying techniques on one of the volunteer helpers for the class, Jeni Underwood.

  • Awesome week for FFA
    Saturday, February 25, 2017 4:00 AM
    Students and staff at North Montgomery and Southmont High Schools spent the week celebrating a great year of FFA. Nancy Bell, the North Montgomery Ag Educator and FFA Advisor shared some of the highlights of the week at North Montgomery. The school has 63 FFA members.
    “This week we had nine students who were chosen to be Pages at the Statehouse,” Bell said. Only 93 students are chosen across the state for the program. 
    Members also had an FFA breakfast where members served to members of the community. There were spirit days with students donning FFA T-shirts and official dress. Thursday the kids enjoyed Ag Olympics with games like horseshoes, cornhole, bag races and more during the lunch hour. Friday, Mr. Strickler, Mr. Margeson, Ms. Hutson and Mr. Baker got to lay a big smooch on a pig since their classes raised the most money with fundraiser buckets. 
    At Southmont, advisor Gary Mosbaugh said that his students enjoyed acting as host for a staff breakfast. They also had a visit from State FFA Officer Nathan Blume and a pizza party.

    The Montgomery County Youth Service Bureau, JUMP Program (Juvenile Mentoring Program) will be running a series of articles about the children who are on the waiting list hoping to be matched with a caring adult volunteer. Their names have been changed and their age changed slightly so that they may remain anonymous!
    Luke is a 12-year-old boy who lives in a single parent household with several friends of the family. His mom describes him as good kid that does pretty well in school and never gets into any trouble. She said he is not really the daring type but is more cautious though not shy. She states that Luke is laid back and a good listener. One of the reasons she wants him to have a mentor is to help him be more outgoing and to learn to try new things without fear. She said he can be quiet at first but will start to open up once he gets comfortable with someone.

  • Bits 'n' Pieces 2-25-2017
    Saturday, February 25, 2017 4:00 AM
    Welcome to the last weekend of February – and boy hasn’t it been an odd month in terms of weather? This week alone has seen weather extremes. Let’s just hope that March doesn’t hold any nasty surprises. 
    * * *
    IT MIGHT FEEL like Montgomery County is caught in a bit of a bobcat craze. Sightings are coming in from all over the county. One resident even told us that he saw an awfully large cat run across the road on a city street (near the RR Donnelley plant on West Wabash). If you have any sightings, email us at to let us know! While there have been plenty of reports and even a few photos, it’s a great reminder to simply be smart and cautious when it comes to small pets and even small children.
    * * *
    STAY TUNED for a big announcement about one of the staffers here at your favorite Montgomery County daily! We’ve been sworn to secrecy, but we can tell you that this will be “national” in nature and it involves one of the younger members of our party.
