Dillsboro Town Council dealt with signs, funds and the town's festival at its Monday, April 14, meeting.

First, council approved transferring $15,000 from its riverboat gambling sharing revenue fund to the town's sewer account.

“The sewer account has run into some shortfalls. … They're having to have the pumps worked on, they're having to replace them,” said Janice Sullivan, Dillsboro clerk-treasurer.

Council also approved applying the $46,000 purchase price for the fire department's old pumper toward the loan for the new fire truck. The old pumper was bought by the Indiana Department of Corrections.

Paul Filter said two new entrance signs for the town will cost a total of $9,170.

Click here to read what Todd Langdon wrote abour his daughter's accident.

Emily Langdon and her family shared a bit more information about her collision and recovery.

Now 12, Emily doesn't remember her all-terrain vehicle colliding head-on with her uncle Mike Langdon's ATV. Even her hospital stay is “a blur pretty much,” though she remembers the last room she was in. She does remember beginning to talk again.

“I mumbled at first. I had to hold my nose to make the right sounds,” she said. And though she doesn't need glasses, she still sees double out to the right side of her surgically-repaired eye.

When her parents tell her what she's been through, they still get tears in their eyes, she said.

“It makes me think how serious my injury was,” said Emily.

Most of her understanding of the crash and her recovery still comes from others, and, after she came home, from reviewing the Care Page her parents kept throughout.

Submitted photo. As Emily Langdon, then 11, takes therapy in the Lokomat to remind her body how to walk, a physical therapist steadies Emily’s head. Due to her injuries, she could not hold it up herself.

Emily Langdon, 12, will play her first fast-pitch softball game this Saturday, April 26, since suffering a traumatic brain injury. Eighteen months ago, her parents Todd and Barb Langdon, Dillsboro,and sister Hannah, 10, didn't know if she'd even awaken from a coma, let alone speak or walk again. Here her dad shares what she and her family went through.

On November 18, 2012, our daughter, Emily, and my brother, Mike, both nearly lost their lives in a horrific, freak ATV accident, when they came over a hill at exactly the same moment and collided head on. Both were air cared from a field on my parents' farm in Moores Hill to Cincinnati hospitals. I'm happy to say both have nearly fully recovered from their injuries.

A couple weeks back, our family watched a NBC Dateline report on Andrea Vellinga and her miraculous recovery after her skull was nearly crushed in the 2011 Indianapolis State Fair stage collapse. Our family sat there and cried as we watched that show because it hit so close to home as her path to recovery from her traumatic brain injury (TBI) was detailed and we saw all the similarities with what our family experienced.

It made us think, these stories - stories of faith, persistence and hard work - are stories that need to be told.
