Murder mystery at the Mansion

Friends of Culbertson Mansion will host “The Wake: A Funeral Murder Mystery,” at 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday, June 28 and 29. Proceeds from the program pay for interior restoration projects at the historic site.

The murder mystery takes place in 1892 with the death of William S. Culbertson. As people pay their last respects at Culbertson’s wake, there is great speculation about who will inherit what from one of the richest men in Indiana. Little did anyone know that lawsuits would be filed after the reading of his last will and testament. As tempers flare, greed can always lead to murder. 

Guests are encouraged to dress in period costume. Reservations and payment in advance are required. Tickets are $20 per person, $35 per couple and include refreshments. Please call 812-944-9600 to reserve seating.

Deadline for ram exam nears

Producers face many hurdles when breeding sheep, but preventing the use of an infertile ram or ram with decreased fertility can be accomplished through a breeding soundness exam. 

Extension research has shown that removing an infertile ram from the flock can increase profits by $10 to 12 per ewe by decreasing the ram-to-ewe ratio, decreasing the percent of open ewes and increasing the percent lamb crop.

A ram breeding soundness exam clinic is scheduled for Monday, July 8, at the Washington County Fairgrounds in Salem, beginning at 8 a.m. Rams must be at least 8 months old. The cost is $30 per ram and each will be insured at market value from the time they leave the farm until they return.  

For more information, or to schedule your ram(s), contact the Purdue Extension — Washington County office by Monday, July 1 at 806 Martinsburg Road, Suite 104 in Salem, 812-883-4601 or
