The efforts to transform Country Squire Lakes from a community full of blight and on the verge of bankruptcy to a clean, proud community are working, but there still is a long way to go.

So says Mike Miller, who is leading the work.

"We're getting there," Miller said. "Every day we get closer to our goal."

Jennings County Superior Court Judge Gary Smith appointed Miller the CSL receiver two years ago.

Jennings County Commis­sioner Matt Sporleder (R-District 3), whose district includes CSL, says he, too, is pleased with the progress being made.

"I'm very happy with how things are going there," Sporleder said. "I'm hearing a lot of positive comments from the CSL community as well. Mike and his staff are doing a great job of working toward that."

The demolition of abandoned and dilapidated houses and mobile homes continues at a brisk pace, the number at 85 and climbing.

Honoring a Civil War hero

On a day when Civil War reenactors acted out an 1863 battle 10 miles to the south in Vernon, dogwood trees were blooming as they shaded some of the grave sites at the Dag Cemetery in northern Sand Creek Township.
