To keep Rex here, support the team



I have thoroughly enjoyed  watching the Terre Haute Rex baseball games since the team was established several years ago. I’ve missed very few of their home games since the beginning and was somewhat distraught when the announcement was made to discontinue the team. So during the fall of 2013 , I wrote and submitted a letter to Tribune Star Editor stating the importance for the Terre Haute community to find a way to maintain the Rex team.

 I’m fairly sure that my opinion didn’t have much impact on the team being purchased, but I’m very thankful that we will continue to have Rex baseball in Terre Haute. Numerous people have told me how exciting it is that we will still have some wonderful entertainment each summer with first-class teams playing in a great venue. Now we, the Terre Haute community, must do our part to attend the games and support the team if we want this to be long term.  

 To the new Rex baseball team owners, I would like to say thank you very much for taking the plunge and making a large financial commitment to maintain the team. Also a big thank you to Indiana State University for the arrangement allowing the Rex to continue playing at the ISU baseball field.  

 Those of us in Terre Haute have a wonderful community and we are truly blessed to have several colleges who have various sports throughout the year.  However, in the summer when there are very few local sports to watch, come out and support the TERRE HAUTE REX!!!

 GO REX!

Duke Foundation strong supporter



Gandhi stated, “We must become the change we want to see in the world.”

The Duke Energy Foundation, with the help of the Wabash Valley Community Foundation, is truly making a difference in kids’ lives in the Wabash Valley. We are blessed to have Rick Burger in our community. Rick is truly a strong leader which is demonstrated through his involvement in our community and it is apparent by his words, actions and deeds.

I would like to thank Mr. Burger, as well as Dawn Horth from Duke Energy Foundation, for their unwavering support of Camp Invention at Indiana State University. The grant that was written by Beth Tevlin from the Wabash Valley Community Foundation and funded by the Duke Energy Foundation has touched many lives and has provided scholarships for children in grades one through six to have an opportunity to attend Camp Invention at Indiana State at a reduced rate.

As we prepare to begin another season of Camp Invention at Indiana State University, I would also like to thank Indiana State University, Indiana State Recycling Center staff, Bob Baesler, the Camp Invention staff, volunteers, the parents/guardians and past campers for all their support.

Kids can accomplish great things as they take an active, hands-on, minds-on role while incorporating science, technology, engineering and math to solve problems. It has been stated, “Your thoughts, words and deeds are painting the world around you.”

Thanks again to everyone involved for painting a world that supports creativity and exploration for future scientists, engineers, and mathematicians.
