    Railroad songs, mixed with bluegrass, will fill the exhibit area at The Depot railroad museum in Salem Sunday afternoon, Dec. 6, from 1-4 p.m., as the John Hay Center holds its Christmas open house.
    During The Depot's open house, Banjoist Jim Smoak and the LA  Honeydrippers
will be performing.
    Smoak, who lives at Pekin, was born and raised in South Carolina and as a  young boy borrowed his grandfather's banjo, taking the first step into a lifelong career in music.
    After high school, Smoak headed to Nashville and soon found himself picking  banjo for Bill Monroe's Blue Grass Boys, performing regularly at the Grand Ole Opry.
    He later served as the only banjo player Little Jimmy Dickens ever employed.
    Smoak's music abilities opened the doors to many stage and television appearances.
    In 1961, Smoak formed the Louisiana Honeydrippers. For 21 years, he performed at the Old Stable in Bardstown, Kentucky. He also performs in the Louisville and southern Indiana areas.
    Visitors to The Depot will be able to tour the museum while listening to a sampling of Smoak's talent as a songwriter and banjoist. All areas of The Depot will be open, including the 1929 Monon caboose.
    Also, for those who want to sit and enjoy the show, seating will be available.

    With visions of turkey and pumpkin pie dancing in their heads, the West Washington High School boys' basketball team cleansed their palates by dining on the Salem Lions, 61-44,  in both teams' season-openers Nov. 25 in Campbellsburg.
    The Senators took control of the contest early and never looked back against an SHS team that was missing two starters who are out for a violation of school rules.
    The hungriest of all West Washington players seemed to be Josh Green, who finished the contest with 18 points and four rebounds.
    Green's apatite was so big, Senator Head Coach Neil Coyle had to take him out of the game during one stretch to settle him down.
    “Josh had a solid game,” Coyle said. “He got off to a fast start and got to tasting the victory, but then forced things a little bit. We took him out and when he reentered the game he played under control.”
