Looking Back – July 2


For the first time, Bartholomew County fair-goers were not allowed to smoke at the fairgrounds.


About 3,000 gallons of diesel fuel spilled when a pipe fitting failed during a fuel transfer at Cummins Tech Center, but quick action by Cummins crews and Columbus Fire Department prevented all but about 500 gallons from spilling into Haw Creek.


More than 100 volunteers from 10 agencies in the Columbus community painted Love Chapel Mission using paint and materials from an anonymous donor after the non-denominational mission church asked for assistance with the project.
