Below is what remains of the Johnny Rusk building. I do not know if the floor slab will remain or be removed.
I have a lot of pictures showing various stages of progress for each of these projects. Maybe I will post them sometime. Or maybe not.
On Tuesday I was invited to a Rotary luncheon to hear a presentation about bluebirds by Ken Murray who is the treasurer of the Indiana Bluebird Society. The society has about 250 members and promotes bluebirds and other native cavity nesting birds. (That means that they do not like English sparrows and starlings, which are not native and which compete with the native birds for nesting sites.) Bluebird populations declined rather dramatically from the 1950s to the 1970s, primarily due to habitat loss. Members of the society encourage bluebirds by providing nesting sites for them. Below is an example of a nesting box that Mr Murray uses.
After the luncheon I noticed that Balloons Galore has moved from the old Sears Building to the Horton Building.
