Chamber, Farm Bureau set first Cracker Barrel

Wednesday, January 5, 2011

Ted Paris
The first Clay County Cracker Barrel of 2011 has been scheduled to take place at 10 a.m., Saturday, Jan. 15.

The event will take place at the Cory Firehouse and is sponsored by the Clay County Chamber of Commerce and Clay County Farm Bureau.

Chamber President Ted Paris told The Brazil Times invitations had been sent to Indiana Sens. John Waterman, who represents District 39, as well as Richard Bray (District 37), and State Reps. Bob Heaton (District 46), Clyde Kersey (District 43) and Jim Baird (District 44).

As of this week, confirmation had been secured from Heaton, Baird and Waterman, Paris said.

"We have (Cracker Barrels) during the political seasons," Paris said. "We always have three a year."

Paris added he expects the state budget to be discussed at the meeting.

"With all the budgetary concerns, there are going to be numerous things going on," Paris said.

Paris added it was essential for residents to know more about what is going on with state legislation.

Marshall Nuckolls
"The more information, the more informed information that we have, the better off we are," he said. "The better schools, the better roads we have, the more chances we have to attract more business."

Clay County Farm Bureau representative Marshall Nuckolls added having three Cracker Barrels is good for county residents.

"I feel like it's a real benefit to the county in order to have them," he said. "I feel like it's a way we can communicate with our legislators."

He added he expected property taxes and redistricting to be hot topics.

"This tax thing is a big thing," Nuckolls said. "But there are a lot of other items to address, too."

Nuckolls said two other Cracker Barrels are in the process of being scheduled.

What? This is dated Wednesday, January 5, 2011 by Jason Moon, Managing Editor, and the cracker barrel is scheduled to take place on Saturday, January 15, 2011. This story is so wrong in so many ways. Why in the world would you publish a story so old? Somebody really goofed.
