Site work contractor looks to move to county

HANCOCK COUNTY — Indianapolis-based RN Thompson Jr. & Associates, which specializes in site work, wants to move onto nearly 16 acres in the 3300 block of West CR 400N in Hancock County.

To do that, county officials would need to rezone the site from its agricultural zoning designation to an industrial one so that the company could stage and store its approximately 80 pieces of construction equipment. The Hancock County Area Plan Commission gave a favorable recommendation for that request to the Hancock County Board of Commissioners. The county board of zoning appeals would need to weigh in as well.

There are currently a house and barn on the property. If approved, RN Thompson Jr. & Associates would build a barn-type facility with office and restroom space.

Senior living residents experience balloon ride

GREENFIELD — Springhurst Health Campus hosted a special Live a Dream event last month for five Trilogy Health Services campuses in the region. Residents of Ashford Place (Shelbyville), Aspen Place (Greensburg), St. Andrews Health Campus (Batesville), Arlington Place Health Campus (Indianapolis) and Wellbrooke of Carmel (Carmel) traveled to Greenfield to take part in a morning hot air balloon ride.

About 20 residents were able to enjoy the once-in-a lifetime experience of riding in a tethered hot air balloon. Nearly 100 people gathered to celebrate the outing, with staff going all out with a Wizard of Oz theme.

The hot air balloon rides were part of Trilogy Health Services’ program, through the Trilogy Foundation, called Live a Dream. The program gives seniors the opportunity to experience something they’ve always wanted to do, whether it’s a bucket list dream or a one-of-a kind group outing.
