This blog reports events and interesting tidbits from Rensselaer, Indiana and the surrounding area.

I learned from Facebook that the only grocery store in Morocco is closing at the end of the month. The discussion was divided between those who were very sorry to see the business close and blamed it on all the Moroccans who shop in Rensselaer, and those who blamed the poor selection and high prices of the store. I hope someone fills the niche that the closing leaves open.

Meanwhile, Strack and Van Til is busy remodeling and reorganizing their new Rensselaer store, trying to make it better. In October they started a small addition in the back.
A month ago, in late November, they were finishing it. I assume it is storage of some sort. It is only a tiny bit of the what they are doing.
Newton County does have some special things that Jasper County does not have. Such as this.
