??  ?    The quintessential end to a long summer is being planned by organizers of the annual Pig Roast in the Park, set
for Friday and Saturday, August 8 and 9, in Beechwood Park in Scottsburg.
    Pig Roast in the Park is a festival that offers a casual, enjoyable experience to those who visit. There will be booths
offering arts and crafts and festival-type fare. Plenty of tournaments are scheduled to start that Friday in softball,
horseshoes, volleyball and tennis. Games for children are slated as well. A gospel sing is set for that Friday night,
while Saturday will offer the annual Scott County American Idol competition as well as hog-calling and watermelon
eating contests. A euchre tournament is also scheduled on Saturday for the public’s enjoyment.
    Of course, folks will come to buy pulled pork barbecue dinners on August 9, and everyone will be able to buy
chances throughout the Pig Roast in the Park to win the miniature Kids House log cabin that appeals to both
children and adults and is now on display at the Scottsburg Wal-Mart Super Center. Tickets are one for $2; three for
$5; eight for $10; and 20 for $20.

?    The Board of Aviation Commissioners (BOAC) for the Salem Municipal Airport met in regular session on Monday
evening, July 28.  Four Commissioners were present; the replacement for former BOAC member, Danny Libka, has not been appointed by Salem Mayor David Bower.  It was determined last month that Libka, a member of the Salem
Common Council, could not legally serve in both capacities.  The Board approved the minutes of previous meetings
unanimously.
    Board President, Bill Barnett, deviated slightly from the printed agenda for the purpose of electing a new Board
Secretary (Libka’s position on the BOAC).  By a vote of 3-0, BOAC member, Tim Pease, was elected Board Secretary.

??    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.
