Tornado retrospective to feature reader photos
The News and Tribune is planning a special commemorative book covering the March tornadoes titled “Recovery 2012.”
We are looking for reader photos of the storm and cleanup, and will give you some spending money if we use your photo in the July publication. Photos that are published along with ones from News and Tribune and freelance photographers will earn $10 per image for the photographer.
Photos should be sent in color, 200-300 dpi, and at least 6 inches wide. Email those to firstname.lastname@example.org. Include caption information about where the photo was taken and what action was taking place. If possible, provide the names of the subjects in the photo.
The deadline for submitting photos is May 25. Include your name and phone number in the submission. Call 812-206-2130 with questions.
Fundraiser set to help Marysville
Many local communities continue to recover from the March 2 tornadoes. Although the immediate needs of those directly affected by the disaster have been addressed, long-term recovery is still a major process. Currently, it is estimated that it will take 12 to 14 months to completely recover in all communities.
Recovery is an expensive process and many civic minded businesses and individuals are stepping up. In Marysville, T-shirts are being sold at Marysville Hardware to raise money to rebuild the Community Center. On May 19, there will be a barbecue fundraiser at the House of Refuge in Nabb from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. ValueMarket in Louisville will be preparing and serving ribeyes, chicken, bratwurst, hot dogs and corn on the cob. Proceeds will be donated to Rebuild Marysville. There will also be live music, face painting and activities for children.

Pizza and Preservation at library
A program that has become an annual event at the New Albany-Floyd County Public Library will reappear May 15.
“Pizza and Preservation: Unlock the History of Your Historic Home” will begin at 6 p.m. in the library’s auditorium.
After eating pizza, participants will proceed to the Indiana History Room, break into small groups and become familiar with many sources available to assist in researching history of properties.
The program is free, but seating is limited to 20 participants, so call or email Indiana Landmarks at 812-284-4534; firstname.lastname@example.org to register.
