Accepts Chairmanship


Mose Gumble has accepted the chairmanship of Jennings County in the near east drive for funds for the starving people of central Europe. The date when the drive will be launched has not been definitely settled.

The county's quota is $1,320. Last year, under Mr. Gumble's superposition, $1,396.89 was realized.

An organization is to be perfected in each township and the hearty support of our people in general is urged. If ever funds for the starving of Europe were needed it is at this time.

New Produce Firm

L.F. Rayburn, who for several years has operated the poultry, egg and produce market at the corner of Jackson and Walnut Street, has announced that Joseph W. Stearns of Vernon has joined in partnership with him and hereafter the firm will be known as Rayburn & Stearns.

Mr. Rayburn says that they will continue to buy poultry, eggs and produce, giving the highest market prices, and that they will be able to handle a larger volume of business from the fact that they will have their own trucks, which will haul direct to the Indianapolis markets.

A look-back at 2020: Jan-June
When former Plain Dealer & Sun editor Bryce Mayer, who retired in March 2020 after 22 years, wrote the opening line "An eventful year, for sure, was 2019 in Jennings County" in his annual Top Stories of the Year report in January 2020, he had no idea that in just two months, 2020 would surpass its predecessor 1,000 fold as one of the most eventful years, not just locally but globally, in recent memory.

Most would agree, however, that while the rest of the country and the world erupted into chaos, our sleepy little county thankfully did not see half the craziness of its big-city counterparts.
