Grape State. vine Awar Rachel Jenkins, Grapevine rapher photog- The photograph of Comet fan Craig Trott, taken by Rachel Jenkins for the March 1995 issue of the Grapevine has captured an honorable mention in the Indiana Historical Society's annual photography contest. The 1995 theme was " Hoosier H y s t e r ia. " S u b m i t t e d photographs were to portray Indiana's fascination with the Photo Wins d sport of basketball. While c o v e r i n g t h e Homecoming game February 10, 1995, Rachel noted that Craig's enthusiastic responses to Comet plays were a " natural" for candid photography. She pre-focused on Trott and waited for an Eastern player to put the ball through the basket. Four pictures were taken, from which this winning expdsure was chosen. The photograph, along with other winning entries, will be on display at 315 W. Ohio St., Indianapolis, on the first floor of the Indiana State~ Librarayn d Historical building from January 19, 1996, through March 15. c Santa Claus, who bears la striking resemblance to Greentown resident, J.

Jenkins Beginning Third Year This issue of the Greentown Grapevine is the first in the third year of publication. More than two years ago a few people pondered if it would be possible to make the expressedwishes of many become a reality, that of having a local newspapey again. It's success is the result of support by advertisers and the involvement of many citizens. The number of people who have a s s u m e d m o n t h l y responsibilities has grown, most recently with the addition of Sue Walker as writer of herb articles, Janice Morris as billing derk and Andy Marsh as sdvertising contact. Jolene Rule has changed duties from feature writer to ad designer. Of great value is the involvement of citizens as they bring news items to our % ttentionW. e are not clairvoyant ior can we be everywhere, so R e g r e a t l y appreciate montributions of this nature. Such involvement helps make . his " a paper for the people".
