The Board of Directors is announcing updates for White County Historical Society fall events. The three main museums will be open from 11 to 2 on Corn Day with the popular corn tasting event at Ratcliff Inn from 11 to 1. Plan to visit the exhibits in each unique museum and sample the corn products at the Ratcliff Inn on Main Street. The exterior of the Ratcliff Inn was repaired and waterproofed this summer. This treatment is supposed to prevent further moisture damage to this 1828 building so that the interior can be repaired and preserved.
After serving 2 1/2 terms on the Carmi Township Board, Dave Hall handed in his resignation on August 22, 2019, saying it was time for him to leave the position. Supervisor Pam Deig submitted that resignation to the board on Tuesday night at the regular township board meeting. Hall had two years remaining in this term. In his resignation letter, he thanked the board for the privilege of serving with them. The board is looking to appoint a replacement within 60 days from the resignation. Trustee Tim States submitted the name of Brian Atteberry as a possible replacement. Atteberry currently serves on the township’s cemetery board, but is willing to resign that post within the time frame. Supervisor Deig said if Atteberry is acceptable to the board, the switch could happen seamlessly, and both slots could be filled within the 60 day time period. A decision was tabled until the October meeting. More possible replacements can still be submitted.
