Local Bands Advance to State Finals

Dubois County (NNDC):

Last weekend,  he Jasper Marching Wildcats, Southridge Marching Raider Band and Forest Park Marching Rangers all qualified for the Indiana State School Music Association’s marching band state finals to be held in Lucas Oil Stadium.

Jasper will be one of 10 bands performing in Open Class B at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis on Saturday. The group will take the field at 11:30 a.m.

Forest Park and Southridge will both compete in Open Class D. The Marching Raider Band will begin their final routine of the year at 6:55 p.m., and the Marching Rangers will play at 5:40 p.m.

The Marching Wildcats have now qualified for the finals in each of the past 30 seasons. Forest Park, the reigning Open Class D champion hasn’t missed the ISSMA finale since 2003. Southridge just barely missed the chance to go to state last season, ending a two-year streak that spanned 2016 and ‘17.

Last month, the Northeast Dubois Marching Jeeps made their fourth consecutive appearance in the ISSMA Scholastic Class Finals.

Whether you’re talking about the leaders and supporters who anchor the programs, or the long list of community music events, clearly, something is working.

This has created an intergenerational mix of fans that continue to invest in and support the still-thriving activity.

All three bands performed in near-freezing temperatures. But

That won’t be an issue this weekend, when the groups travel north to downtown Indianapolis to perform indoors at Lucas Oil  Stadium.

The Week in Indiana History

Ashbel Willard

1860     Indiana Governor Ashbel Willard died at the age of 39.  The first governor to die in office, he had served as Lieutenant Governor and Speaker of the Indiana House.  His body lay in state in the old Capitol in Indianapolis.  The duties of governor were assumed by Lieutenant Governor Abram Hammond.

1869     A steam engine exploded at the Indiana State Fair, killing 19 people and injuring over 100.  The engine had been part of a demonstration in the use of a power saw.  Pieces of machinery were found more than a quarter-mile away from the fairgrounds, which at that time were located in the area of 19th and Alabama Streets.  It is now the Herron-Morton Place neighborhood.

Dental1879     Classes began at the Indiana Dental College. The school was acquired by Indiana University in 1925 and is now one of the oldest dental colleges in the nation. One of the school’s best-known research projects resulted in the development of Crest toothpaste in the 1950s.

Register1925     The first retail Sears and Roebuck store opened in Evansville.  The company, the largest mail order business in America, believed that people living in cities would be more interested in shopping in stores rather than catalogs.  The Evansville store was successful and within a few years there were hundreds of Sears stores across the nation.


Camera1950     Football fans saw their first college game on a live network television broadcast.  The Notre Dame/ North Carolina contest went over the air to 44 cities.  The TV crew boasted that their five cameras would cover all the excitement of the game.  The Irish won, 14 to 7.

Museum1976     The Indianapolis Children’s Museum opened at its new location at 30th and North Meridian Streets.  With nearly 500,000 square feet inside and the 29-acre Sports Legend Experience outside, it is the biggest and best children’s museum in the world.
