The second Clay County Cracker Barrel for the year has been scheduled.

The event will take place Saturday, Feb. 21, at 10 a.m., at the Jackson Township Firehouse. The event is set to conclude at noon.

Clay County Farm Bureau and the Clay County Chamber of Commerce will sponsor the event.

Clay County Farm Bureau representative Marshall Nuckolls said state legislators Vern Tincher, Clyde Kersey and Richard Bray will be in attendance.

Tincher is the state representative for District 46, which includes portions of Vigo, Clay, Owen and Monroe counties.

Kersey is the state representative for District 43, which includes much of northeastern Vigo County and a portion of northwest Clay County.

Bray is a state senator for District 37, which includes portions of Clay, Putnam, Morgan, Owen and Monroe counties.

State representative Nancy Michael, who represents District 44, will not be in attendance at the meeting. Nuckolls said Parke County has scheduled a Cracker Barrel for the same day.

Michael was at the first Clay County Cracker Barrel in January, but since part of her district includes Parke County, she will attend the Cracker Barrel there since it is the county's only one of the year.

District 44 includes portions of Clay, Parke, Vigo and Putnam counties.

Nuckolls said he believes the hot topic of discussion at the upcoming meeting will be tax caps.

"I think that will be the biggest issue," he said, also adding he anticipated discussion on school concerns and new bills.

Nuckolls said the January Cracker Barrel had an approximate attendance of 40 people. He expects the same for the one scheduled this month.

"It was a good crowd," he said. "We had good discussions. I'd say we should be close to the same. That was probably as big a crowd as we've had. We just hope people come out."

For more information on the Cracker Barrel, call 812-495-6304.

In addition to the upcoming Cracker Barrel, Nuckolls said Farm Bureau has scheduled a trip to the statehouse for Wednesday, Feb. 18.

Nuckolls said the Clay County Farm Bureau also wanted to take representatives from agencies in Clay, Putnam and Owen on the trip, but Farm Bureau District 7 wanted to go as an entire group.

The group will go to the statehouse at 10 a.m. to arrange meetings with legislators.
