??    If you haven’t taken advantage of these wonderful offerings at the Carnegie Center for Art and History in New Albany, then you’ve been missing out! The Carnegie Center Family Fun Workshops have been a great success and these drop-in classes are the perfect way for families to spend Saturday morning together. All ages have a chance to look around the galleries and are led by CCAH staff as they create art related to the exhibits or an upcoming holiday.
    Tin Punch (which is, just as its name implies, a design of holes punched into a tin sheet) is often seen in an early American type of furniture known as a pie safe. The tin punch panels on the doors of the pie safe let air circulate and keep insects away from the pies and bread inside. Tin punch is also used in lanterns even today: the metal prevents the candle from going out, and the holes allow air to escape and light to shine through.

?North Harrison administration drops plan to stymie opponents of Morgan Elementary renovation PDF Print E-mail

Wednesday, 06 August 2008 00:00
  ?    The administration of the North Harrison Community School Corporation has decided against challenging in court the petition opponents of the $15 million renovation of Morgan Elementary School recently had filed June 11 in the Harrison County Clerk’s office. 
    The petition has been verified with 121 valid signatures.
    The petition drive was led in part by North Harrison Classroom Teacher’s Association president Greg Rupp, who thinks that it would be better to pay off the present high school debt, and then renovate both Morgan Elementary School and North Harrison Middle School at the same time.
    The legal question centered on whether or not the remonstrance petition could be signed by former North Harrison Board member Kathy Goldman, and also notarized by her.
