STINESVILLE, Indiana - STINESVILLE - Every month or two, on a Saturday night, Stinesville's step-back-in-time general store undergoes a transformation. A hundred cushioned chairs emerge from storage and are placed around the room, all facing the center of the 120-year-old mercantile. They cart in stage lights and a soundboard, then arrange some bar stools in the center of the room amid sparsely stocked pantry shelves, toys from yesteryear, rusty metal advertising signs, a lit-up Coca-Cola wall clock and two fading Quarry Lad letter jackets displayed on hangars.
