Dillsboro Arts Friendship Gallery
Dillsboro Arts Friendship Gallery to have show

Recently Ben Sieverding, Versailles, was asked by Thom Maltbie to submit some of his late mother’s art work for an exhibit at the new Dillsboro Arts Friendship Gallery located at the corner of Bank and North Street in Dillsboro.

The late Thelma (Macke) Sieverding was an accomplished artist. At her viewing the room was filled with artwork she had created and exuded energy of a woman who could translate what she saw into beautiful artwork. Sieverding’s artwork will be on display the month of February at the Dillsboro gallery. The artwork for the month is “6 degrees of Dillsboro.”

The exhibit opens Saturday, February 3 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. A reception will be held Friday, February 9 from 6-8 p.m. Each Saturday in February the exhibit will also be open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Flying Tiger squadron honored at Statehouse

Wanda English Burnett

The Flying Tiger squadron were honored last Friday, January 26 at the Statehouse in Indianapolis by State Representative Randy Frye. It was an honor for the Flying Tigers from Ripley County to be selected. Frye said “Helping young men and women reach their full potential and developing tomorrow’s leaders is essential.” He went on to say part of that development requires exposing young adults to public service and a variety of career paths. That was why the Flying Tiger squadron of the United States Naval Sea Cadet Corps (USNSCC) was recognized on the House floor with a resolution authored by Frye.

Pictured are the Flying Tiger cadets and officers with State Representative Randy Frye. Those attending in no particular order are: Officers: LTJG Michelle Novinger, LTJG Scott Novinger: WO Timothy Menefee and ESN Bill Wagner. Cadets are: PO3 Matthew Badinghaus, SA Bryan Carpenter, SR Travis Coons, SR Conner Chandler, RC Samuel Edwards, PO1 Matthew Hall, SA Owen Matthew, PO2 Nathanael May, SN Kaleb McBeath, PO2 Jarrett Rohrig, PO2 Blake Uribe, SN William T. Wagner and SR Skylar Westerfeld.

The youth development program teaches seamanship and seagoing skills, while instilling the virtues of good citizenship and strong moral principals. This program was created at the request of the Department of the Navy to “create a favorable image of the Navy on the part of American youth”. They offer the Naval Sea Cadet Corps junior program for children ages 10-13 and the Naval League Cadet Corps senior program for children 14 and up. According to information from Rep. Frye, the Flying Tigers offer a professional career pathway system modeled after the Navy to ensure strong moral character and life skills within cadets. Recruits are gradually promoted through ranks such as seaman apprentice, seaman, petty officer third class, petty officer first class and chief. This allows them to experience leadership roles and use them throughout their communities.

The Flying Tiger squadron has completed more than 1,600 hours of community service serving in local areas. They have helped at the Versailles Pumpkin Show providing parking detail and security during the parade, helping the Osgood American Legion with their still- board shoots, the Batesville American Legion retire over 100 tattered flags, and handed out programs at the Governor’s Inauguration. They also escorted veterans at the Indy Honor Flight reception and provided a 21-gun salute at Milan VFW’s Memorial Day Commemoration.

The Flying Tigers squadron started with two on its roster in 2014 in Batesville and has grown to more than 30 strong. These cadets must be drug, alcohol and gang free. They are also required to have at least a C average while in school. Their core values are: honor, courage, and commitment. The goal is to teach communication, dedication, discipline, responsibility and respect according to Frye. With over 400 different sea cadet units in the United States culminating nearly 10,000 cadets, the Flying Tigers squadron ranked #7 in the nation for the inspection year of 2017. They are flying high!

“As your representative, it is my greatest pleasure to acknowledge these outstanding men and women from our community,” concluded State Rep. Randy Frye. To find out more about the group you can go online to visit
