Legislators talk issues in NV

The topics varied at Saturday's Third House gathering in North Vernon.

The town hall event at the Jennings County Public Library attracted over 40 people who came to listen to and ask questions of the three state legislators that represent Jennings County at the State House - State Rep. Jim Lucas (R-Seymour), State Rep. Randy Frye (R-Greensburg) and State Sen. Chip Perfect (R-Lawrenceburg).

They talked about taxes, education, civil rights and roads. And did they ever talk about roads - especially the U.S. 50-SR 750 junction.

Safety concerns at the western end of the new bypass were voiced by many in the audience, making this issue No. 1 at the public session.

One man who said he drives through the junction often said not only is a traffic signal needed there, but also more signs.

"INDOT can be rather arrogant when I've tried to talk to their people," he said. "A solar-powered traffic light there would cut down the cost. There needs to be signs, too, for eastbound traffic to indicate they need to turn to continue east on U.S. 50. I see so many semis miss the turn, go up SR 750 a bit and then do U-turns."

Editor's Notebook
'Priceless' collection

The collection of native American artifacts, nearly all of it from the Jennings County landscape, is worth a good deal - particularly in historical terms. Jim Harr doesn't know exactly how much it would bring on the open market, but it has to be considerable.
