"My Town and Yours" Thoughts and Observations of Mark Lange

The Indiana Supreme Court ruling that Vincennes Girls, Incorporated should own the Camp Wildwood property along Washington Avenue seems like a no brainer to this southern Indiana hick.
How can a law put into effect years after an agreement was made be fair? How can taking a local community treasure away from the community be fair? Well the Supreme Court agreed.
Now we'll have another example of a bunch of community groups and individual citizens working together to bring the camp back for community use.
Most Vincennes Girls have no idea what the ruling means and many young girls may not have even heard of the camp since it has been closed for a number of years, but girls, boys, and adults will all benefit from the decision.
