As Dillsboro Homecoming celebrates “Coming Home Again” as its theme this May, the street festival will feature several newbies. Tops for many folks will be the beer garden sponsored by American Legion Post 292 in the grass area across from Hairlines. The beer garden will be moved to a paved area should heavy rains precede the event, said festival chairman Brett Hamilton. “We’re going to try it and see what happens,” he said. Alcoholic beverages are not allowed in the festival area other than in the beer garden. Also new will be the Skyline Coney Dog eating contest at 7:45 p.m. Wednesday, May 14. Skyline is donating the coneys for the competition, which precedes returning contests of Twinkie eating, apple peeling and corn shelling. Dillsboro Idol semi-finals will follow. Awards for outstanding citizen, police, fire and emergency medical responders will come right after the 7 p.m. opening ceremonies. See HOP, Page 11

search “friends of versailles state park” The Friends of Versailles State Park has been busy making plans for the spring and early summer. Under the umbrella of the Ripley County Tourism Bureau, the membership is made up of those who love the outdoors, want to improve the park as well as encourage more visitors. Bill Riley will lead a Photographing Wildflowers 101 class, at the Schimmerhorn Shelter, on the road behind the pool, at 6 p.m. Monday, April 28. “It doesn’t matter if you have a high-end digital camera, or a cell phone, this workshop will give you tips and tricks for creating eye-popping photos in the field without spending lots of money on expensive photo technology,” said Riley. There will be about 30 minutes of instruction, followed by practice shots in the field. The class is open to the public, and will be held rain or shine. All of the Indiana State Parks will mark Welcome Back Weekend Saturday, May 3. The Friends Group will be leading a First Saturday Hike, starting at 9 a.m. from the Oak Grove Shelter parking lot. This will be a wildflower hike, open to the public. Hikers are encouraged to bring their cameras. Following the hike, at noon, everyone is invited to a pitch-in picnic at the Oak Grove Shelter. Friends members be hold a yard sale in conjunction with the U.S. 50 Yard Sale, at 9am Saturday, May 17.

Dagaz Acres Leadership Center and Zipline Adventure Course in Ohio County offers a variety of outdoor options for folks. Whether alone or with a group of friends, you will return to the “real” world with fresh perspectives and incentives. Dagaz Acres Leadership Center and Zipline Adventure Course also is the first of its kind in the Tri-State and the only state of the art ACCT certified zipline course in Indiana. DALC facilities are equipped to provide the logistical support necessary for group programs to run smoothly including lodging options at local B&B’s and Casinos, food options from local merchants and tent camping for Boy Scout and Girl Scout troops. Dagaz Acres welcomes people of all sorts to come and experience a zip line adventure. There are a few minimal abilities that you need to ensure a great time.

Take the following quiz and find out if you’re ready for an outdoor adventure:

ÎÎAre you reasonably fit and in good health? (The zipline course requires walking on unpaved trails with varied inclines, a 15 percent grade at most, similar to climbing a flight of stairs. Maximum weight is 250 pounds for zip lines.) ÎÎDo you have average strength and mobility? (You will be required to control your speed by grasping the zip line cable while wearing leather gloves. You may also need to pull yourself along the cable for a few feet if you lose too much speed before reaching the landing platform. All zip line skills will be taught prior to your actual tour). ÎÎCan you run or walk moderately fast for a few feet? (Some of our ziplines require a little takeoff boost!). ÎÎIs your hearing and eyesight adequate? (Each participant must be able to hear verbal directions and to see a person from at least 60 feet away.) ÎÎDo you weigh between 30 and 250 lbs? (This weight range can generally be safely accommodated by our zipline harnesses. You must also be able to wear a helmet and gloves.) ÎÎIs your waist no larger than 42 inches? (You must be able to comfortably fit into a 42-inch harness at the waist.) ÎÎAre you at least 7 years old and 30 pounds? (We love kids of all ages but safety comes first! Anyone less than 16 years old also must be accompanied by an adult.) ÎÎAre you comfortable with less than ideal weather? (Here in southern Indiana the temperature can hit the mid-90’s with 90 percent humidity.) ÎÎHave you been drinking? (Anyone under the influence of alcohol or any drugs, legal or otherwise, that impairs their ability to safety execute the course safety requirements will not be allowed to participate.) ÎÎAre you pregnant? (If no, welcome; if yes, please come visit us after the joyous event!) ÎÎDo you have any serious health condition? (Contact your doctor if you are unsure about participating in this activity. Dagaz Acres reserves the right to exclude anyone from participation for medical, safety or other reasons deemed not conducive to a safe zipline experience.) For more information call 1-812-594-2727.

tival s e F ean B y v Na 2013 The Tri-State Antique Market will open for its first show of the 2014 season Sunday, May 4 at the Lawrenceburg Fairgrounds. Billed as“Indiana’s largest antiques and vintage Market,” the event will host nearly 20,000 visitors at a series of six dates held on the first Sunday of each month through October. With an ever changing line-up of between 200 and 250 dealers, each Market date is a true adventure in treasure hunting! ÎÎOver the years, this legendary antique “flea market” has been an important source for shop owners, home decorators, renovators, and collectors. Month after month, the Market’s vendors present a dazzling variety of antique and vintage furnishings, decorative arts, jewelry, historical Americana, architectural and industrial salvage, and pop culture memorabilia. As decorating and collecting tastes change, ven-

dors adapt to offer the trendiest in vintage styles right alongside traditional classic examples. ÎÎ Official Market hours are from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. “Earlybird” shoppers are admitted during vendor set up at 6 a.m. A walk-in $3 admission (over age 17) is charged at all times. Attended pets and children are welcomed. Over half of the Market’s vendors display indoors or under cover, so the event is held “rain or shine.” ÎÎComplete Tri-State Antique Market information, including detailed directions, area accommodations, and photos of past Market finds is available at www.lawrenceburgantiqueshow. com. ÎÎAdditional details are available by phone from Bruce Metzger at 513-738-7256 or from Aaron Metzger at 513-353-4135. ÎÎLater 2014 Market dates include Sundays June 1, July 6, Aug. 3, Sept. 7, and Oct. 5.

Milan ‘54 - Hoosiers Museum ÎÎ201 W. Carr St,; Open Wednesday - Saturday 10am - 4pm; Sunday Closed ÎÎHOW it started: In early 2000, a committee had been formed to look into the possibility of developing a museum in Milan to house the artifacts and memorabilia of the 1954 Milan Indians Team. A commitment from the Ripley County Tourism Commission to see this idea develop into a tourist attraction, also aided in seeing this project move forward. This core committee formed Milan ’54, Inc., a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization in August 2000. ÎÎThe long-term goal of organization is to develop the overall experience of this event with a permanent museum and develop the town of Milan to recreate the feeling and flavor of the times in 1954.

Students may be able to tune into something different next year. The University’s cable contract is due to expire in June, and it is looking into a new contract. For the past 10 years, Time Warner Cable has provided cable to the campus, including residence halls, athletic events and classrooms. Now, the University has four options for cable providers - Time Warner, Buckeye Cable, Campus Televideo and Institutional Network Communications. “There’s a good mix between cable and dish,” said Andy Grant, director of business operations at the University. “There’s two different industries for the same outcome.”

“Our hope is through the negotiations that we’ll end up with roughly half the channels in high definition.”

These four companies responded to a request for a proposal the University sent out and have made proposals to the University committee regarding the decision. A request for proposal outlines the requirements of the University. The companies then respond with a proposal to explain how they would provide the service. Included in the request are the
