Thanks for the Website. Have been a subscriber to the old Crawford County Democrat and Clarion news for many years.

Thank you so much. This will allow me to keep all of my family (all of which live in other states) current regarding the happenings in our town. The Clarion really covers our area.

Ok, let's just hold our horses here for a minute ... We need to talk about this. This particular sewer problem is Georgetown's dilemma correct ? I wasn't aware that the majority of the New Salisbury area required a large plant if any. And the particular area I was aware of are not considered permanent in nature. Which would lead to the next question, exactly what amount of money would individual home owners be expected to pay for such a connection ??? Normal home sites in my area can easily sit 600 - 800 ft. and more from the road and generally situated on several acres. What concerns me and comes to my mind is Cable alone wanting $4.00 a foot just to lay cable to my home and that was just a 'cable'. That alone was expected to cost me $ 3,200.00 for installation alone. Verizon has since come along, a competitor. Question being, who will be expected to pay for a sewage installation and connection to my home situated 700 ft. from the road, sitting on 8 acres with 2 occupants ? Me ? Us ? the homeowners ? But if I didn't pay the hook-up fee set by our local politicians, they would have the right to put a lien on my home ? Correct ? It's evident that there are many 'critical' issues to be discussed with the Homeowners and tax payers of Harrison County for what is obviously a Georgetown crisis. By the way, I personally didn't move to New Salisbury for fast-food, I've heard there is an obesity crisis in the United States and when I do want it ~ Corydon is conveniently located. I moved to New Salisbury for peace, quiet, the lack of smog and pollution, clean air, clean roads, clean creeks, nature and peace of mind. Growth is totally overrated.

This race already has a "nader" in Ron Paul
March 11, 2008 | 08:48 AM
The difference between this and other Nader runs is that this race already has an established loony old idealist in Ron Paul. I'd like to see a debate betwixt them.
And, Mr. Cable, we realize how you feel about Bush and his presidency by now, and I appreciate your opinions, I really do...but, does it really have to be repeated every couple of weeks? Let's talk about something new. Bush is old news.

I believe a picture of the curved bridge going into Milltown was used on the Indiana drivers license back in the 60's.
I also think it was on every title that was issued.

Chris, you sure have a talent for covering and reporting newsworthy events without bias or agenda. This is a great report on the Milltown bridge saga.

Morgan has not been renovated since the tornado went through there. Isn't it about time for Morgan to be remodeled. North Harrison Elementary just received a face-lift and now they want to move onto the Upper Elementary? I think Morgan needs to be looked at first before they move on to another NH building.

Crawford County Drugs:
July 09, 2008 | 06:17 PM
I don't even know where to start on the subject of drugs in Crawford County. People from all around Southern Indiana know how bad the drugs are there, it is flat out embarassing to tell someone that is where you are from. I haven't met a person yet that I tell I'm from Crawford County and thier eyes widen followed by a comment of how bad the drugs are there. I moved from there the first oppurtunity I had, its completely ridiculous. The cops down there need to … start cracking down on the drug addicts. I am very happy to see that these people are in jail, I hope they do enough time to make them realize how disgusting it is to use and distribute drugs. I have alot more to say about this but I'm going to leave it at this so that this gets published on the feedback.
July 14, 2008 | 09:29 AM
They people who need to be "investigated" are doctors. Those prescription drugs came from doctors.... In my opinion, they are even more dangerous than street drugs. I hope the cops in Crawford think to investigate md's and the growing problem of "medicating" America. It is funny how they can get away dealing drugs, but your average Joe cannot.....
July 16, 2008 | 09:59 AM
There was (allegedly) $5000.00 worth of cocain there as well, did that come from the doctor too?? Its ashame they can't send every drug user to prison on the first offence for a minimum of five years. The world would be a better place.

Thank you for publishing a nice article about the park. It truly is a treasure and a place the late Clayton Roberson and his siblings would have been so proud of. We enjoy the park every time we visit.

Still Work To Do
July 31, 2008 | 02:44 PM
This article paints a pretty picture, but in reality there are a lot of single moms who do not get the support they need from the child support office. I am the grandmother in the situation and know first hand about multiple calls with no call back... father being over 60 days past due with no reivew, etc. So while we may doing better overall as a county, there is still a lot of work to do.

Stephenson's Closes After 91 Years
September 22, 2008 | 02:08 PM
Thank you for the wonderful article (and pictures)about my family's business. Our grandfather purchased the business in August of 1917 on the day my dad, Paul Stephenson, was born.
brings back memories
September 23, 2008 | 10:48 AM
We moved from Leavenworth 20 years ago but recall Stephenson's with great fondness. Where else could a clerk tell you your husband had already bought ice cream and what kind. I can't imagine Leavenworth without them!!

Don't forget Wynn
October 22, 2008 | 10:28 PM
Come on Wade! HAHA. You forgot that we are going to miss Wynn Shroyer too. We had three seniors, and you left out Wynn. So let me add this...
"Wynn is going to also be missed next season. She is an amazing athlete and has been a great captain for the past two season. She will be missed because for 4 years she has solidified the middle blocker position as a 4 year varsity starter."
No hard feelings though Wade, we still love seeing you at the games.
Prayer for the family
October 23, 2008 | 08:24 AM
Blessings and comfort to the family. Our loss is heaven's gain. I consider son Jim one of my dearest friends, and knew the elder Jim to be a very pleasant gentleman. He always had a great smile and a friendly greeting. His influence and love lives on through his family and friends. May his family sense God's presence in this time of loss. They will continue to be in our prayers.

You People Do Not Get IT!
October 29, 2008 | 12:49 PM
I speak from experience, woman that are abused are also controlled and kept from the money that would allow them to leave. Be it either making it impossible to get to work (i.e., CONTINUOUS car problems) battered prior to starting a job etc., or no family support, i.e, nowhere to go. May I add, Indiana LAW only SUPPORTS ABUSE and DOES NOT DETER IT. When you call 911, if you so much as have defended yourself during the attack, YOU ARE ALSO GUILTY! It's a lose lose situation. Also, bruises don't show up until days later …
