Whenever things go sideways, the citizens of Crawley are quick to blame it on the curse. Principal Mike Pojanski was the exception. He didn’t believe the death of Senator Crawley back in the 1800’s had any bearing on the rash of bizarre events at his school. So was it a coincidence that the student running around warning people the curse was real had to be taken away in an ambulance? And what was up with a Calculus student claiming he could steal his teacher’s soul if he wanted?

Mike was handling it, even while juggling the investigation into Emma Pennington’s secret admirer. The culprit was breaking into the Homecoming Queen’s locker and leaving her beautiful 3D-printed flowers. Which meant he was also breaking into the computer lab and circumventing the school’s security system to do it!

But there’s no such thing as curses. That’s what Mike kept telling himself, anyway.



Crawley's Curse examines the history of Jeffersonville, Indiana, formerly known as Port Fulton, when the banks of the Ohio River were crowded with shipyards.


The inventions and modifications to steamboat engines by Daniel French revolutionized the industry, paving the way for the success of the Howard Yard, which later became American Commercial Barge Lines.
