?    After the success of its inaugural “Senior Class” program, the Carnegie Center for Art and History encourages the public to attend future programs in the series. The free program is held the second Tuesday of each month at the museum, and participants are asked to bring a brown bag lunch, with drinks provided. Seasonal “semesters” cover related topics and include a field trip and a graduation party. Participants can complete the whole semester or pick the individual programs of most interest.
    The first program in the Senior Class series was a field trip to the University of Louisville Art Library on August 12. Gail Gilbert, Art Librarian of UofL, presented an introduction to researching art. Participants learned about (and got the chance to thumb through) some of the best references for finding information about art and artists. One participant was “pleased to learn about such a comprehensive and convenient resource for researching art.”

 ?    Officials representing the Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) heard 100 percent negative reactions to the proposed turning lane being considered for US 150 between where the road splits into a four  lane road near Mt Saint Francis on the eastern side of the project, and the Harrison County/Floyd County line on the western side of the project.
    The gymnasium at Greenville Elementary School held dozens of residents living within the town limits, the Greenville Town Board, and INDOT officials Monday night (Sept. 9).
    Greenville Town Board President Talbotte Richardson opened the proceedings with the statement, “If they (INDOT) did what they wanted to do, it would be the death knell of this town.”
    Brett Walls, an engineer with the firm drawing up the plans, emphasized that the plans are only half done at present, and that INDOT and the engineers on the project are trying to get input from the residents at the time.
    “Public input is always a part of the design process,” Walls said.
