Batesville Restaurant Closes Down During Lunch

Owner Martin Loya said Casa Mexicana closed due to a lack of business.

A lack of business contributed to the Batesville restaurant closing on Monday.

Casa Mexicana in Batesville has served its last meal. Although the restaurant opened last year, owner Martin Loya reached the decision to close after a lack of cliental and financial instability.

While the restaurant on East Ripley Street suddenly closed on Monday in the midst of the mid-day lunch, Loya said he had been considering closing the business for a couple months.

“Today my lease ran out and it was time to call it quits.” Loya said, “I left on my own free will. Business wasn’t going good and it wasn’t making sense.”

As workers were clearing out the restaurant on Wednesday evening, Loya acknowledged customers that have supported the business.

“All you can say is thank you very much and I appreciate the opportunity. Thanks for the patronage and all of the support from the local people,” said Loya.

He added that he will be moving back to Jasper, Indiana.

South Decatur Elementary School has introduced a new fundraising program called My School Color Run. The My School Color Run program aims to go beyond traditional fundraising. Rather than sell goods, the program aims to engage the entire student body in a fitness initiative that aims to instill a life-long healthy way of living. On Sept. 3, at 9 a.m., the students, staff, and community of South Decatur Elementary School will walk, jog, and run their way toward a healthier life while raising funds for the PTO’s Playground Revitalization Project. The color run will be held at South Decatur Jr-Sr High School, and will be open to the public. This is an untimed fun run. Participants will pass through four color stations throughout the course and end with a massive color toss at the My Color Run Post-Race Party. Participants will be treated to refreshments, music, and fun following the run. Interested participants of all ages can register by visiting www.SouthDecaturMSCR.eventbrite.com, or by completing a paper registration form prior to the event.
