Rapt Audience

Silly Safaris – Summer Reading Program

The Friends of Harrison County Library sponsored Daisy Doodle of Silly Safaris at the Boys and Girls Club for a live animal show on June 20.  The Friends raise funds by selling gently used books on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of each month from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. from The Book Box in the library parking lot.


The audience was enthralled with the animals featuring: Remington the Yorkie puppy, an armadillo, a milk snake, a hermit crab, a tarantula, a baby alligator, Hoosier the Eurasian eagle-owl, a tortoise and a rabbit.

All 235 guests were offered a chance to take two fingers and gently pet the backs of Remington, Hoosier, the armadillo, the rabbit and tortoise; and view the tarantula and hermit crab up close.

2022 County Committee Elections

Nominations open for local Farm Service Agency County Committee Elections

The nomination period for the local Farm Service Agency County Committee Election begins June 15, 2022 and ends August 1, 2022. Elections across Indiana will take place this fall.

Locally, elections will be held in the following Local Administrative Areas (LAA):

  • LAA 3- Harrison County (Franklin and Harrison Townships)
  • LAA 5- Floyd County

Agricultural producers may nominate themselves or others as candidates. Organizations that represent minority and women farmers may also nominate candidates. Nominees must participate or cooperate in a program administered by FSA, be eligible to vote in a county committee election and reside in the LAA in which the person is a candidate. To become a nominee, eligible individuals must sign nomination form FSA-669A. This form is available at the local FSA county office and online at www.fsa.usda.gov/elections.

The County Committee system is unique within the U.S. government and it ensures fair and equitable administration of FSA farm programs. It is important for the CC to be representative of all agricultural producers in the area, including women, minorities, and beginning farmers.

If you have any questions about the nomination process or FSA programs, please feel free to contact Jennifer Anderson, FSA County Executive Director, at 812-738-8121.
