  • Earl Luzader Bridge
    Monday, April 24, 2017 4:00 AM
    A ceremony Saturday morning put the finishing touches on making the “Earl Luzader Bridge” official. Luzader is a centenarian who has lived at the same home on Fall Creek Road for 80 years. He uses the bridge to cross Sugar Creek and tend his garden. Montgomery County Commissioners approved a proclamation to name the bridge after Luzader in December. He turned 100 in November. Commissioner Jim Fulwider and County Councilman Don Mills were on hand for the ceremony. A wooden sign created by Larry Ward was placed on the bridge to show its new name. Father Alex Miller offered a blessing.

    American Rosie the Riveter Association is trying to locate women who worked on the home front during WWII. Thousands of women worked to support the war effort as riveters, welders, electricians, inspectors in plants, sewing clothing and parachutes for the military, ordnance workers, rolling bandages, clerical, farming, and many other jobs such as volunteer workers collecting scrap metals and other critical materials. These women have stories of their WWII experiences that are of historical value and perhaps have never been told. American Rosie the Riveter Association would like to acknowledge these women with a certificate and have their stories placed in our Archives.

    Indiana’s second highest court will conduct oral argument at Wabash College at 10 a.m. on Wednesday. A panel consisting of Judge Patricia A. Riley, Judge Margret G. Robb, and Judge Robert R. Altice will hear Dustin Sorhaindo v. State of Indiana, a case in which Sorhaindo argues the trial court erred in denying Sorhaindo’s motion to dismiss and granting the State’s motion to transfer seized money. The oral argument will conclude with a question-and-answer session; however, the judges will not be able to speak about the case.

    A strange acting raccoon was spotted near the Sugar Creek Trail (off Schenck Road) this week. After talking to a few experts, it sounded like the issue may be distemper, but that’s not a definitive answer. And while humans aren’t in danger because the disease can’t be transmitted to us, it can make animals aggressive if cornered. It certainly can be passed on to other animals though. And there’s no guarantee it’s distemper, so whether walking pets or out by yourself, keep an eye out in that area for a while.

    This is the 80th year that centenarian Earl Luzader has lived at the same home on Fall Creek Road on property that straddles Sugar Creek. For all of those 80 years, Luzader has used a bridge to cross the creek and tend to his garden. After today, that bridge will officially be the “Earl Luzader Bridge.”
    The decision was made in December by the Montgomery County Commissioners, a month after Luzader turned 100. The bridge used to simply be called Bridge 142. Today at 9 a.m. there will be a celebration of Luzader’s 100 years and his bridge. A county official is expected to be on hand to read the proclamation and a wooden sign created by Ripley Township artisan Larry Ward will be unveiled. Fr. Alex Miller will offer a prayer.
