I don’t think a new theater will do anything magical for Logan’s economy. Surely there is better usage for our money. I would wager that there are many more residents out there with the same opinion as my own. Is it too late to speak up?

Thanks for support of annual festival

At the 2012 Storybook Festival, children visited countries from around the world without ever leaving Spencer Park. It was a delightful event full of imaginative play, family fun, and of course many books.

As the 2012 Storybook Festival partners, the Cass County Reading Railroad, the Cass County Family Y, Girl Scouts of Northern Indiana Michiana, the Logansport Art Association, and the Logansport Junior Civic Theater extend heartfelt thanks to the people and organizations that made the festival a success: Anita Vernon and the National Junior Honor Society of Lincoln Middle School, the Logansport Parks Department, American Red Cross–Cass County Chapter, Kristen Carbough, Cass County Communications Network, Tom Coleman and A Unique Travel, Kim English and Bodyworks, Logansport Fire Department, Logansport High School Diversity Club, Logansport Pepsi Bottling Company, Logansport Police Department, James McNeany, Main Street Market, Martin’s Supermarket, Joan Michael, Audrey Michaels, Mid-America Radio Group, Pharos-Tribune, Rick Rouser, Steve and Josh Russell, Dave Shepler, Stillwater Preschool, Kyle Thompson, Dale Turnpaugh and Special Officers and the United Way of Cass County.

Dr. Suess said “The more you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.” When you read to your child every day, a world of possibilities is sure to be in store.

Nikki Reed, Cass County Reading Railroad

Why move icon from camp chapel?

During the third week of Boy Scout camp this summer while attending the interfaith chapel service, I noticed the small concrete statue of the Virgin Mary was missing. When I asked the camp ranger about it, I was told that it “was removed so we wouldn’t offend anyone.” I am offended!
