Can the cold weather really be over?
A quick check of the forecast shows the highs are supposed to range between 50 and 70 over the next 10 days.
I was fooled last year and planted the garden in late April/early May. Then all the rain hit.
I won't be fooled again.
As I wait to buy my seeds, I'll pass along some information:
Don't use E-911 addresses yet
Chad Way, Linton postmaster, stopped by Wednesday morning and shared some information about the E-911 readdressing issue in Linton.
The readdressing is almost complete, and should be finished in the next few days.
Customers on Rural Route 5 should have all received their new addresses by now, and Way said 90 percent of customers on R.R. 3 should have received their new address.
The information comes in the form of a letter from WTH Technologies, Inc. of Indianapolis, the company doing the re-addressing.
"People started receiving their letters last Friday," Way said.
Customers on R.R. 1, 2, and 5 "should get them this week or next week," Way added.
The postmaster stressed that customers shouldn't use their E-911 addresses until they receive the OK from the post office.
"The post office will send a letter out when they can start using them," Way explained.
Once the Linton routes are completed, all of Greene County will have new E-911 addresses.
"They can use both addresses for a year after they get the OK to start using the new one," Way said.
Help clean up the park
Worthington Park Board President Peggy Wolfe emailed to ask the newspaper to pass along some information about the park.
The Worthington Park will be closed from 9 a.m. on March 23 to 1 p.m. on March 26 for tree trimming and grounds care.
Wolfe said the park will reopen at 1 p.m. for the public to participate in the "Pretty up the Park" event.
If you would like to volunteer or for more information, you can contact Wolfe by email at firstname.lastname@example.org .
WRV feasibility study info
The White River Valley Board of School Trustees will learn what the recommendations are from the MGT of America feasibility study.
The recommendations will be presented at an 8 p.m. meeting Thursday in the WRV Jr./Sr. High School cafeteria.
The public is encouraged to attend.
WRV Superintendent Layton Wall says the board will only listen to the recommendations Thursday and no action will be taken.
NCAA, high school basketball
This is a great time of the year. The high school basketball state tournament has reached the semistate level, and the NCAA Tournament gets under way.
* North Daviess has what it takes to win a Class A state championship. The Cougars play great defense and are controlled on offense.
North Daviess (22-3) plays Indianapolis Metropolitan (20-6) in the Southport Semistate on Saturday at 1 p.m.
* The family traveled to the Hatchet House -- Washington's home gym -- last Saturday night to watch Washington play Corydon Central in the Class 3A regional title game.
The Hatchet House is a great place to watch a game, and you add a great player like Washington's Cody Zeller, and it was a good night.
Zeller had 38 points and 13 rebounds.
If Zeller isn't Mr. Basketball something is wrong with the way the voting is conducted.
* A story printed in the Peoria Journal Star newspaper earlier this month listed a few names being considered for the men's basketball coaching position at Bradley.
One name that stood out was Matthew Graves, the current associate head coach of the Butler Bulldogs.
Graves, a White River Valley High School graduate, would be a great choice.
