    Area motorists may have noticed busy intersections having guests with buckets collecting in recent weeks. When one looks at the calendar after seeing the collectors at intersections, the combination means one thing, it’s WHAS Crusade for Children time.
    Local fire departments are kept busy the weeks leading up to the annual event. Members of the Sellersburg Volunteer Fire Department are no exception. Historically the department holds their first roadblocks over Memorial Day weekend and continue collecting the two weeks leading to Crusade weekend.
    This past weekend members of the department shared the roadway with the motorists at the intersection of 311 and 60, their traditional roadblock location.
    The Sellersburg Volunteer Fire Department is one of the original departments that collected for the Crusade. This is the 56th year of the Crusade. The department was formed in September 1949.
    “We have collected since the very first Crusade for Children,” stated Rick Cannon, one of the Co-Chairs of the Crusade for the department.
    Cannon and Charlie Heishman have co-chaired the department’s Crusade effort for some 15 years.
    The Crusade effort is a family tradition for the two. Both of their wives are actively involved with the Crusade as well as their sons.

Cleaning up Clark County, abandoned homes, buildings being taken down PDF Print E-mail

    “It thrills me to death,” stated Kenny Evans as he looked at the abandoned burned home in Otisco.
    The property was beginning to be cleaned up last week but it was a long time coming for those living in the area. The home at the corner of Chestnut and Highway 3 in Otisco burnt about three years ago according to local residents. Since the fire the rubble has sat awaiting clean up.
    This property is one of 20 properties across Clark County that will soon get a makeover thanks to the Clark County Commissioners.
    “Mike (Moore) came to us and asked for support to clean up the properties,” stated Clark County Council President David Abbott. “We (the council) voted 7-0 for the clean up. We have had so many complaints about vacant buildings and it is time to take action. We were getting complaints about the safety hazards the abandoned buildings represented. Now that it is beginning to be done, we are getting calls from people thanking us.”
    Moore was on hand Wednesday morning to see what progress had been made at the property in Otisco.
    “This is just the first. Tony Semones has been around the county and found the homes and buildings that need to be cleaned up. There are about 20 homes in the area of Bethlehem, Otisco, Marysville,” Moore explained. “This is a health hazard and a safety risk. It is long overdue and I’m glad we are getting something done.”
    Moore said the Commissioners have been working to find the property owner of the home in Otisco.
    “It’s a big deal now because it has gone on for so many years,” Moore said.

Clark County DARE Essay winners honored with banquet PDF Print E-mail

    Many fifth graders across Clark County have recently graduated from a program that will help them make the right decisions and choices for the rest of their lives.
    The D.A.R.E. program was taught in 11 different elementary school across Clark County by two D.A.R.E. Officers, Jeffersonville Police Department’s Jason Jackson and Clark County Sheriff’s Deputy Joe Waters. The officers and students came together on Thursday evening, May 21 at the Clark County REMC community room for a beautiful banquet.
    Jackson taught the program at Bridgepoint, Maple, Northaven, Sacred Heart, Springhill, Thomas Jefferson and Wilson Elementary Schools in Jeffersonville as well as Utica Elementary School.
    Waters taught the program at Borden, Henryville and New Washington Elementary Schools.
    After several weeks of learning the program, which teaches students about drug and alcohol abuse and how to make the right decisions, even if they are the hard choices, the students’ last assignment with the program is an essay.
    Each student writes an essay about what they learned from the program. The essays are then judged. Three winners were chosen from each elementary school including an overall school winner.
    The overall school winner from each of the 11 schools were honored last Thursday evening with a D.A.R.E. banquet. The students and their parents and siblings were treated to a nice meal before the ceremony to honor each student.
