PIERCETON â€” Is it possible for a school corporation to remodel and construct two elementary schools without increasing its residentsâ€™ property taxes?
According to a financial study conducted by H.J. Umbaugh and Associates, an accounting firm, it is possible â€” and Whitko Community School Corporation is going to give it a shot.
At Mondayâ€™s school board meeting, Superintendent Steve Clason gave an in-depth presentation on a long-range plan established in 2011.
COLUMBIA CITY â€” A pair of individuals arrested for having a mobile methamphetamine lab had their first court appearance Monday.
Braidon Hall, 19, of Columbia City, and Mitchell Bradley, 37, of Garrett, were booked last Wednesday after a routine traffic stop turned up an mobile meth lab, allegedly belonging to the pair.
Medical issues were a concern as well. Bradley allegedly had a medical seizure at the scene last Wednesday, and had one Monday after the pair pleaded not guilty in Whitley County Circuit Court.
Hall and Bradley both said they intend to hire private attorneys.
