Jeff Cummins hired as Director of the Division of Public Policy and Regulatory Affairs for the Indiana State Department of Agriculture

The Indiana State Department of Agriculture (ISDA) announced a promotion and new hiring within the Division of Public Policy and Regulatory Affairs. Jeff Cummins will be taking on the role of Director of the division.

“One of the department’s most important functions is to advocate on behalf of the industry at the state, local and federal levels,” said Ted McKinney, ISDA Director. “I’m confident that Jeff and Katie can carry this mission forward, serving Hoosiers and the industry well.”

Cummins graduated from Indiana University Bloomington in 2012 with a bachelor’s degree in Political Science and Communications, and from Indiana University McKinney School of Law in December 2016. He worked for the House Republican Campaign Committee, Faegre Baker Daniels LLP, and the Indiana Attorney General’s office, prior to joining ISDA as its Program Manager of Policy and Regulatory Affairs.
Scottsburg Kiwanis Club work with children in our community!
The Scottsburg Kiwanis Club and Scott County District 2 hosted a pilot vision screening project in partnership with Kiwanis International and the OneSight Foundation at Scottsburg High School for tenth graders. Bill Jerrow, Kiwanis International Strategic Alliance Executive; Lisa Jarboe, OneSight Foundation Director; Heather Crites, SCSD2 District Health Coordinator; and Kiwanians Doris Marcum, Al Riggle, Darryl Smith, Terry Davis and Jack McWhirter participated in the vision screening project.

Doris Marcum completed the Prevent Blindness online training program and was certified as our Coodinator. Kiwanis International is working with the OneSight  Foundation on the feasibility of creating vision screening kits for Kiwanis Clubs. If feasible, OneSight would provide lenses and frames onsite to accommodate most correction needs. For students needing more advanced corrective lenses, vouchers would be provided to access local optometrists and glasses. Indiana State law requires vision screening for certain grades. This pilot project selected a grade not included in the mandatory screening.

One hundred sixty-six students were screened in grade 10 from 9:15am-12:00pm. The screening identified nineteen students that need a referral to more extensive eye examinations that may need corrective eye glasses.

American Pickers coming to Indiana!
 Mike Wolfe, Frank Fritz, and their team are excited to return to Indiana! They plan to film episodes of the hit series  AMERICAN PICKERS throughout the region in June 2017!

AMERICAN PICKERS is a documentary series that explores the fascinating world of antique ‘picking’ on History. The hit show follows Mike and Frank, two of the most skilled pickers in the business, as they hunt for America’s most valuable antiques. They are always excited to find sizeable, unique collections and learn the interesting stories behind them.

As they hit the back roads from coast to coast, Mike and Frank are on a mission to recycle and rescue forgetting relics. Along the way, the Pickers want to meet characters with remarkable and exceptional items. The pair hopes to give historically significant objects a new lease on life, while learning a thing or two about America’s past along the way.

Mike and Frank have seen a lot of rusty gold over the years and are always looking to discover something they’ve never seen before. They are ready to find extraordinary items and hear fascinating tales about them. AMERICAN PICKERS is looking for leads and would love to explore your hidden treasure. If you or someone you know has a large,private collection or accumulation of antiques that the Pickers can spend the better part of the day looking through, send your name, phone number, location and description of the collection with photos to:
