    A crowd of about a hundred people were on hand to hear Crawfordsville Mayor Todd Barton and Montgomery County Commissioner Phil Bane give the State of the City and State of the County addresses Thursday. 
    At the event, sponsored by the League of Women Voters of Montgomery County, Barton provided updates on several elements of the Stellar program improvements. 
    “We’re well on the way to turning our winning plan into a reality,” Barton said. 
    The mayor told those on hand that Planning Director Brandy Allen is working to update the city’s comprehensive plan, which hasn’t been updated in more than a decade. 
    At the forefront of the discussion about the Stellar improvements was the recently-announced decision to move Fusion 54 to a downtown location and use the location at Franklin and Washington Street for a trailhead park.

    The warm weather has golfers raring to go. So the Crawfordsville and Montgomery County Chamber's March Breakfast Before Business couldn't come at a better time -- or location! The next BBB is scheduled for Wednesday at the Municipal Golf Course. For those who aren't familiar, the course is located at the east end of South Boulevard -- just past the Crawfordsville Park & Recreation Department. Breakfast begins at 7 a.m. and this monthly Chamber event is always a great place to network -- not to mention get in a couple of quick swings this time! Please RSVP Chamber Deputy Director Anne Shaw if you plan on attending at

  • Bob Powers – A Blessed Life
    Friday, February 24, 2017 4:00 AM
    Bob Powers has lived quite the adventure over the last 85 years, and will be the first to say, “I’ve been blessed in this life”. 
    Powers moved to Ladoga in 1947 from Ohio. He graduated from Ladoga High School. He started working at R. R. Donnelley in 1950, when he felt the draft “catching up” with him. So, he and his high school buddy, Dick Williamson, decided they’d join the Marine Corps and help in the war efforts. Powers spent 1951 to 1954, serving his country as a United States Marine. 
    “I’m extremely proud of being a Marine,” he said.
    After his time in the service, Powers caught up with an old friend from school, Joe Prosser. With no destination in mind, the pair decided to take a road trip. They built a camper on the back of a pick-up truck and set off on their 13,000 mile journey across the country. 
    “This was a high point in my life looking back,” he reflected.

    Chamber members have a new option for senior care thanks to a collaboration with Whitlock Place. Senior Care is on the rise. With the growing demographic in our county being elderly, chances are you or someone you know is currently or coming up on a time that you will be caring for an elderly loved one. The average caretaker will spend 20 hours per week caring for their aged family member. 
    Stress levels increase and the financial costs are staggering. When adult children quit their jobs, or cut back on hours, they not only give up immediate income, they also reduce the amount they will eventually receive in retirement benefits. When you tally lost wages, Social Security benefits and retirement benefits, the average adult child who is a caregiver loses $303,880 in lifetime wages and benefits.

    Suicide is the second-leading cause of death for Hoosiers ages 15 to 24. Research compiled by Indiana Youth Institute (IYI) in its 2017 KIDS COUNT in Indiana Data Book found that one in five Indiana high school students have considered attempting suicide, and one in six have made a plan for attempting suicide and one in 10 have tried to take their own life.
    IYI and its community partners are holding a suicide prevention workshop to help youth workers, parents, coaches, teachers and others learn how to spot the warnings signs of suicide. The workshop is on Tuesday from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Donnelley Room of the Crawfordsville District Public Library.
    Madeline Zielinski with Mental Health America of Indiana will teach attendees how to recognize the warnings signs of suicide ideation, how to ask someone directly about suicide and the resources available to help a person who may be thinking about taking their life.
