Indiana DAR active in Dearborn and Ohio Counties

Indiana Daughters of the American Revolution is beginning a new chapter in Lawrenceburg for those ladies 18 years or older who can prove lineal descent from a patriot of the American Revolution. The National Society of DAR was founded on Oct. 11, 1890 and is a non-profit, non-political volunteer women’s service organization dedicated to promoting patriotism, preserving American history, and securing America’s future through better education for children. DAR members volunteer many hours to support our veteran patients and military personnel, award scholarships and financial aid to students, and support schools for under-

served children with annual donations exceeding one million dollars. Ladies from the surrounding areas of Dearborn and Ohio Counties attended an informational meeting in July and the ladies were able to work on their lineage documentation and a few were able to prove they did in fact have a patriot in the 1700’s. Several attended the first meeting and were greeted by the INDAR State Regent, Jeanie Hornung, INDAR Organizing Secretary, Janet Lloyd, and Southern District Director, Cheryl Baxter. Applications were printed and signed that day. Some of the patriot names are: Blaisdell, Flake, and Weidman.

Those of you who have I have written some of passed the farmstead since my favorite words about the we sold it have noticed there barn I feel like sharing them. is a big change.  “My earliest memory is sitting on a rock in front of First, the house has been the barn and playing with redone. The little bedroom a make believe miniature that had to be made out of a village with houses made porch when I could no longer of mower teeth and stick go to the upstairs bedroom soldiers. was removed.  That was a I was about the same plus since it was kind of an eyesore. The house still had Doris Butt age when something special happened once a year. wooden siding.

Soon after our selling, the giant threshing machine pulled by a house had a new look. The little bed- puffing steam engine will ever forget it.

room returned to a porch. Yellow siding was put on with accents of red by the windows. The hundred plus year old beauty now can compete with the new homes in the subdivision (once our land) homes across the road. Then this winter I received notes that the barn had been changed. Indeed, it had.  New siding has styled the exterior in a whole new look. Now I admit I had to think about that awhile.  The barn was always special to me.  Even in its previous appearance, it made quite an impression. As a child I was proud of it. 

The harmonious sounds of the chugging thresher and snorting engine are still very much in my memories. I can still see the neighbor men arriving with their teams and wagons. The ladies helped

my Mother cook a special dinner that would-although never a spoken word

said so-out do all other meals served. I can smell the worker’s sweat, see them washing their faces in the pan on a bench and drying with feed sack cloth towels. (I still have the bench and some of the towels.) A crew of men carried bags of wheat into the granary and up the stairs. I would sit in the bin and they would pour the grain over me. I liked that. It was a wonderful day.  I have only to enter the barn to see my mother milking the cows named after neighbors while Dad did other chores. I can see the horses, Fannie and Barney. I remember slipping them ears of corn and enjoying their chomping noises as they ate. Their noses felt so soft. Later there was another team, Sam and Bob. They were sold when they were of no more use. My father did not ask what would become of them.” This are my favorite paragraphs of all my writing. “I hear the business of the barn: the squeak of the hay wagon and hollow sound of horse’s hoofs as they walk across the wooden floor, the creak of that loaded hay fork as it struggles along the track of the barn and rattle of impatient horses shaking their harness.  I hear the sound of machinery: the slap of the drive belt as it powers the feed grinder, the pulsations of the tractor as each grain bundle is received into that noisy thresher or the corn shredder. I can hear the talk of horses, bellowing bulls, mooing cows crying for weaned calves, cats with kittens, and chickens clucking in nests in the hay. I definitely will not forget the hissing of geese as they chased me. They are sounds so alive and gratifying to my ears. One of my jobs as a child was pulling the hay rope back. Of all

Big Bros/Sis DO make a difference Senior Source Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Cincinnati is urgently in need of volunteers. The agency pairs adult mentors-Big Brothers and Big Sisters-with young people in the tri-state who can benefit from a positive role model. There are 400 children on the waiting list right now, with only a handful of volunteers being screened and matched. The need is critical, and the success is proven. 99% of children in the program are in school and are not involved with the juvenile justice system. Mentoring also changes lives. Just ask 23-year old Stacie Tanksley, who was paired with a “Big Sister” at age eight. Tanksley says, “Both my parents and brother are mentally challenged. Though I’m not, I struggled. I was the child with no money, no friends and dirty clothes. Elementary school was horrible for me, except for the one day a week when I knew my Big Sister Marsha would pick me up after school.” Marsha Ford, Tanksley says, was the one person she could count on. She was the person who helped with homework, took her to the library, the mall and, her favorite, the airport. The two lived in Lawrenceburg and, “For the first time,” Tanksley remembers, “I realized the world was bigger than I ever imagined, and that I could find my way in it. Marsha changed my life forever.” Marsha, who told Stacie, “Take it one step at a time and know I’m always in your corner,” saw her “Little Sister” graduate from college and will be the matron of honor at Stacie’s upcoming wedding. She encourages more people in the community to become Big Brothers and Big Sisters, saying, “It’s important that every child have an adult in their life who believes in them, who is consistent in support, provides some structure and a safe place. You don’t have to spend money to make a difference. Make no mistake – you CAN make a difference in a child’s life. I guarantee the experience will SUBMITTED PHOTOS make a difference in your life as well.” Big Brothers Big Sisters needs Stacie Tanksley and Marsha Ford as Big & Little volunteers throughout its 11 county then and now. to. Consider being a role model for a local service area in Cincinnati, Northern Kentucky and Southeastern Indiana.

Blind work expenses can include guide dog expenses, meals consumed during work hours, and income used to pay income taxes. You can learn all about the different rules for both Social Security and SSI by reading our publication, Working While Disabled — How We Can Help, available to read or listen to at www.socialsecurity.gov/pubs. From that page, type the title in the box at the left side of the page. The online booklet will tell you about the work incentives you may be able to use. You also can put the word “work” in the publications search box to find out more about how Social Security’s work incentives can help you. Pay special attention to the publications entitled Incentives To Help You Return To Work and Your Ticket To Work. These publications, which you can read or listen to, will guide you as you consider your options. Barbara Crecelius is Social Security District Manager in Madison

Officially breaking ground Saturday, Sept. 7, on a specially designed house for Lawrenceburg native Brett Bondurant, thanks to the work of Homes for Our Troops are, from left: Jeffery Williams, a former Army corporal and HFOT recipient from Huntsville, Ala.; former Army Capt. Bill McClure; HFOT Executive Director Dawn Teixeira; London Bondurant holding infant daughter Jacee (partially hidden); Brett Bondurant; Lawrenceburg Fire Chief Johnnie Tremain; U.S. Sen. Joe Donnelly, D-Indiana; Army Staff Sgt. Eric Miears. Homes for Our Troops is a four-star rated 501(c)(3) charitable organization based in Taunton, Mass. For more information go to www.hfot.org. Teixeira said at the ceremony the home is not charity, but a “gift” to a veteran for his or her service to the country.
