Jenny’s picks – March 15

1) Part of the American dream is home ownership, am I right? Some day, I would like to achieve that dream for myself, but the mortgage process seems a bit daunting. David Seiwert, Hallmark Home Mortgage, will cover the lending process, searching for a home, home inspections, home insurance and take questions, at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Bartholomew County Public Library, 536 Fifth St. For more information, call 812-379-1255 or visit
