Ride for Workman Fund appreciated
The committee for the Alex Workman Memorial Fund wishes to thank all who participated and the businesses that donated to our annual motorcycle ride fundraiser held June 15. A special thank you goes out to the Rushville Eagle Riders, who make this event possible.
The ride was a huge success, with all proceeds going directly into the memorial fund. This will be used to help families and schools in Rush County with autistic children. Our success was due to the generosity and kindness of people like you.

Sheehan Cancer Center thank you
The members of the Rush Memorial Hospital Foundation board and Rush Memorial Hospital staff would like to thank Stagg’s Dairy Treats and Restaurant and the public for their gift of $812.20 to the RMH Sheehan Cancer Center. Many thanks to the staff of Stagg’s for promoting the Joe Sheehan Day and giving a portion of the proceeds back to the Sheehan Cancer Center. This money will go towards much needed equipment and supplies for our patients in the center. Thank you, Stagg’s and Rush County, for your wonderful and continued support!

Chickens in Rush County
“The general trend in zoning has been to maintain certain rights of the individual, but to carefully control them in the hope that his development will not have adverse effects on the society around him. This is the basic aim of zoning in general, and this ordinance in particular.”- from page 4 of the Rush County Zoning Ordinance.
In reading page 4 of the Rush County Zoning Ordinance, it would seem that a balanced approach to zoning would be the desired course for those writing, and enforcing the ordinances. A deeper dive into the ordinance seems to reveal just the opposite when it comes to allowing animals on less than 10 acres, particularly chickens.
