This sculpture is a powerful piece of art known as "The Solitary Chief" and made of bronze, weighing 1,500 pounds and standing 10 feet tall. A local family recently donated the bronze art. The sculpture was originally completed by internationally renowned artist, Hermon Atkins MacNeil in 1904. The Livingston County Commission placed this sculpture on the south east side of the courthouse where it can be viewed by the public. Chillicothe is a Shawnee term meaning, "The Big Town Where We Live." C-T Photo Brittany Tutt

About 600 Big Bam participants rode into town June 13, most one or two at a time. The cyclists camped out in Simpson Park Monday night and headed to their next stop, Brookfield, early Tuesday. Cyclists were entertained Monday in Simpson Park by live music from Dustin Thomas and the 190 Rhythm Section, Flannigan's Right Hook, and Final Mix Show Band. There were also a variety of vendors set up. Cyclists began their biking journey in St. Joseph on Saturday and ended their trip in Shelbina on Thursday. C-T Photos / Paul Sturm

 Local artist, Steve Holt, is hard at work on the new wooden creation being incorporated into Simpson Park this summer. This new (and fifth) creation for Simpson Park will be a wooden totem pole carved from an old burr oak tree. The totem pole is privately funded and is to be a memorial for the late Gary Clampitt who enjoyed wood carving. The tree trunk that is being used for the totem pole was previously located just east of the Rotary Club shelter house in Simpson Park. C-T Photo / Brittany Tutt
