Another major milestone for the” Chelsea Jubilee”, this year marks its 150th anniversary this coming September 2nd and 3rd. The “Chelsea Jubilee” is Indiana’s Oldest Continues Festival, located in Chelsea Indiana, Hwy 62. To celebrate this historic occasion the association will be offering a limited quantity printed history book available with your membership.

The “Jubilee” represents many things to many people, a festival celebrating a successful Harvest, and a Community Reunion rolled into one. People return to Chelsea and the Saluda area this time of year from all over country to rekindle old friendships and share old memories. The “Jubilee” provides a place for family and friends to relax with music and entertainment. Browse the Arts and Crafts booths, play Corn Hole and enjoy the Antique Tractors Parade. Kids actually get paid to play games! Don’t eat before you get there! Four local Church groups and the Fire Department are on site. For many of these organizations, the Jubilee is their major fund-raising event of the year.

The “Chelsea Jubilee Park Association Inc.” continues its tradition set 41 years ago. When a handful of its members purchased 6 acres of land in Chelsea, made improvement and transformed the property into what’s known today as the Saluda Township Park. That property was deeded to Saluda Township to be used as a Township Park for the price of $1.00. The association continues to make improvements to the Park, this year with a new sign celebration the 150th anniversary. With additional donations from the local Churches and individuals plans are in place to extend the water system on the west side of the Park.

The Community invites you to bring your lawn chair and join with us in celebrating this historic occasion.

Indy Air Hogs, fireworks slated at Scottsburg Airport on September 10 PDF Print E-mail

The public is invited to meet some interesting people and enjoy a free fireworks show on Saturday, September 10, at the Scottsburg Airport.

Members of the Indy Air Hogs will be flying their single-person paragliders during the morning and evening, depending on weather conditions, advised airport owner/operator Larry Beckley. “Ideally, they get up and going early and then in the late afternoon hours after the winds die down,” Beckley said. Several Air Hogs are scheduled to travel to Scottsburg early, so keen-eyed observers will probably see these odd-looking and enthusiastic “birdmen” and “birdwomen” in the air throughout the prior week.

The Air Hogs, an international organization for enthusiasts of powered paragliding, are having their national convention at the local airport. Its friendly members will be available throughout the day to answer questions from the public, and there will be several vendors on the grounds.

Last year, Air Hogs attended from every state in the nation and from four foreign countries, Beckley said.

Admission to airport grounds and parking are free for the public. The airport is located at 2527 South Lake Road, Scottsburg, about a mile south of the Mid America Science Park.

Around 9 p.m., a free fireworks show will be offered to the public. Those planning to attend should bring lawn chairs or blankets to enjoy the show, which is sponsored by the Scott County Visitors Commission.


Memphis Road Onramp To I-65 Closes Next Tuesday For Paving PDF Print E-mail

CLARK COUNTY, Ind.—The Indiana Department of Transportation plans to close the onramp at Memphis Road to southbound Interstate 65 at Exit 16 next Tuesday (SEPTEMBER 6). The entrance ramp will remain closed for approximately ten days while construction crews pave I-65 mainline lanes at that location. Meanwhile, Memphis Road remains open at the I-65 overpass.
I-65’s existing traffic pattern routes southbound motorists to the east side of interstate at a median crossover near mile marker 16.4—then back to the west side near mile marker 11.0. Voiding this 5½-mile section of I-65 allows INDOT’s contractor, E & B Paving, to remove and replace existing pavement, install drainage structures and do ditch work on the west side of the interstate.
INDOT’s $67 million Major Moves 2020 project in Clark County is reconstructing the roadway and adding travel lanes on I-65 from 2.8 miles south of S.R. 160 near Memphis Road to 1.02 miles north of S.R. 60 just past Old State Road 311. This work includes new bridge superstructures at Memphis Road, Perry Crossing, Muddy Fork and Old S.R. 311.
