I appreciate our new library. On my seventieth birthday, our grandchildren presented me with a wet nosed, big, beautiful eyed, black and white adorable schnauzer puppy. I named her Jossie and she is a real joy to my husband and me. She’s a bit spoiled and sassy but makes us laugh with her funny antics and is my closest companion.

I noticed many trailers had Maine license plates. I’m still researching why.  While the subject of Wisconsin, I did not see a single dairy on our route through The Dairy State.  Corn and soy bean fields nudged right up to the often neglected barn. They must be somewhere, but not on our route. I wondered where Montana was going to use all the baled hay we saw across the state. I learned they feed it to their cattle or sell it. Wyoming offered miles and miles of pitiful pastures. We had one whole day of traveling through corn in the Corn Husk State.    And I know you are curious as to how my navigating went. Well, there was that one time we headed to the “other east” to see the prairie dog town for 20 miles before realizing we were heading the wrong direction. We were always lucky, Ray and I thought we were lost, we somehow arrived where we wanted to go. We always seemed to find a good parking place. We ate at lots of little restaurants.  Most of which served better food than our meal in Old Faithful Inn. We didn’t carry any food, the opposite of one trip several years ago where we made it a goal to stop and picnic lunch at scenic places. Ray was a very good driver. We were proud that he had not received one impatient blow the horn...until we arrived at Madison. Some fellow did not like the speed Ray pulled into a driveway.

Drive through Cass Township and you will see several cemeteries that are well marked, thanks to new signs made by Rising Sun’s Dean Carrigan. The work, according to county councilman Ron Spurlock, was done with the help of a grant from the Ohio County Community Foundation. Signs were made and the Ohio County Highway Department addressed a drainage problem at the Mt. Pleasant Cemetery on Ind. 262. Carrigan’s concern to keep the cemeteries looking good dates back to his late uncle Jimmy Dorrell (long time county historian and author of cemetery books in Ohio County). “When he called you, Carrigan remembers. “ You knew he had a job for you. He gave me assignments up

Red Wolf could house namesake come 2014

PAGE 9

By Chandra L. Mattingly

Despite its name, the Red Wolf Sanctuary and Raptor Rehabilitation Center has never housed pure red wolves. But in late September, the private zoo underwent the first major step in that direction. It was inspected Wednesday, Sept. 25, by volunteers from the Red Wolf Species Survival Plan. Once their report is finished and submitted, it will be reviewed by a steering committee which will decide whether or not the sanctuary just outside Rising Sun is suitable for red wolves, said Will Waddell, Red Wolf Species Survival Plan coordinator for the Association of Zoos and Aquariums. If the Red Wolf Sanctuary does become a red wolf site, it will be the first in Indiana, he said. Red wolves roamed Indiana centuries ago, their prime food source the passenger pigeon, said Red Wolf Sanctuary co-owner Paul Strasser. But passenger pigeons became extinct early in the 20th century, and their loss, combined with loss of habitat, hunting and trapping, led to fewer and fewer red wolves. Eventually, the remaining animals began interbreeding with coyotes. In 1980, the red wolf was declared “biologically extinct” in the wild. Seven years later, the species was reintroduced in northeastern North Carolina, where the population has grown but still fluctuates. The freeranging wolves include 70 with radio collars, said Waddell. “That’s sort of a minimum,” he said. The zoo population ranges around 190, including just under 60 at the captive breeding facility and Point Defiance Zoo, Tacoma, Wash., where Waddell is located. The Red Wolf Sanctuary recently received a $5,000 grant from the Ohio County Community Foundation to build a three-acre wolf site as a future red wolf pen, said Strasser. Mike Robinson has done some excavating to prepare the site, as well as a fox pen site. The latter must include wire fencing underground to keep its occupants from digging out, said Strasser.

Wolf inspection

The sanctuary, just outside Rising Sun, was inspected Wednesday, Sept. 25, by RWSSP volunteers Jackie Peeler, assistant director of the Henson Robinson Zoo,

Pumas are known by a variety of names: cougar, catamount, panther, and mountain lion. and Talon Thornton, former director of the zoo, located inn Springfield, Ill. Peeler said they planned to submit their report to Waddell this week. Sanctuary owner Paul Strasser said he believes the red wolf evolved in conjunction with the chestnut forest which once covered much of Indiana. Evolving from a foxlike animal that came north from South America, the red wolf is the only wolf to have evolved in North America. Red wolves weight perhaps 50 lb. tops, he said, but with captive breeding now average 57 lb., he said. That compares to coyotes at 30 to 40 lb., which historically were not native to Indiana, and timber wolves at around 80 lb. “We’ve destroyed the chestnut forest, we’ve wiped out the passenger pigeon, and then we destroyed the

red wolf,” said Strasser. Historically, neither coyotes nor the huge white tail deer population were here, though some deer ranged in the river bottoms. Coyotes moved in along the expressways, which essentially are big prairies, he said. In addition to red wolves, Strasser hopes to acquire some timber wolf puppies next year. The nine timber wolves resident at the Red Wolf Sanctuary range in age from 13 to 15, he said. “They’re all getting pretty old,” said Strasser.

Happy cat?

In other activities at the sanctuary, J. C. Boyken is working on an Eagle Scout project building a fox pen, and the sanctuary recently completed a large enclosure for the resident cougar, Yuma the Puma. Construction of the mountain lion enclosure was funded with a $5,000 grant from the

Greater Cincinnati Foundation, said Strasser. “She’s out on rocks and logs,” he said. The sanctuary is located

about a mile outside Rising Sun at and is open for tours by appointment. Call 812438-2306 to schedule a visit. Donations for the non-profit

may be sent to the Red Wolf Sanctuary, 3027 Ind. 262, Rising Sun, IN 47040. “We’re still existing off donations,” said Strasser.

TIM HILLMAN PHOTODean Carrigan looks at gravesites at the Murray Cemetery on Cass Union Road in Aberdeen. Carrigan made the new raised lettered signs for this and other

Cass Township cemeteries.

SIGNS, From Page 3

Carrigan has done cabinets for the city of Rising Sun and continues to work in his shop. The signs weren’t too time consuming with the raised lettering taking the biggest part of the time. Some of the signs were just old and needed replaced while one (at the Marsh Lampkin Cemetery) had been shot up. Spurlock wanted to thank Carrigan and

highway superintendent Ron York for their efforts. “It’s nice to see the cemeteries not being neglected,” added Carrigan. There’s a lot of history including revolutionary soldiers at the Marsh Cemetery and the Gillespie Cemetery (whose family were gun makers). Carrigan has done cabinets for the city of Rising Sun and continues to work in his shop. The signs weren’t too time consuming with the raised lettering taking the biggest part of the time.

November 1953 Emanuel Lutheran Church had been gutted by fire. *** Sunman residents were raising funds to start a fire department. *** Frank Hoffmeier and O W Vaughn had traveled all the way to Wyoming to hunt deer. Chris *** Aurora: A strike at the Indianapolis Chair factory was in its third McHenry week. *** Greendale: No action had been taken on a proposal to establish a Post Office. *** Students at Greendale school would be provided with dog tags similar to those worn by service men. *** Dillsboro: A proposal had been made to build a gym and three additional classrooms at the high school. *** At the Popular Auto Theater on US 50 between Lawrenceburg and Aurora: Gregory Peck in “Only the Valiant”.
