    Before the ins and outs of the 2016 presidential contest become a preoccupation for many of us, it seems a good time to step back and look at the office of the presidency for which so many candidates are vying. The presidency inherited by whoever wins next November will be substantially changed from the position his or her predecessors occupied a few decades ago.

Plans began last year when a director was needed, rights had to be secured, and gathering the minds of those who could make it happen had to take place.

    I made mention a couple of months ago of local historian Tony Collignon’s desire to find out more about a late-1800s Catholic chapel in the Adyeville area that went by the name of St. Jude Thaddeus. Tony had the dates of when he thought the chapel was open and he had shared emails with the Archdiocese of Indianapolis, but he had no substantive information on the chapel. He did not have to wait long for an answer.
