Big Dance Round Up and Look Ahead
Last week we gave you a preview of the tournament and some predictions of teams that we felt could make a run to the Final 4. Well, those predictions were way off and the bracket this writer submitted to his friends and a couple websites sits in about 10 millionth place. All the wise guys were talking about Iowa State and Virginia. Those teams won a combined 1 game. Now we are going to go region by region to see what happened and what we can look forward to seeing next weekend.
WHITLEY COUNTY â€” The Whitley County Board of Commissioners agreed to a contract change with Quality Correctional Care, LLC, the company that provides health services to the inmates at the Whitley County correctional facility.
Whitley County Sheriff Marc Gatton brought to the commissioners a request for a change in the contract with Quality Correctional Care. The amended contract would run until Dec. 31, 2018.
The basic change to the contract is in the area of how payment for services is made. The new provisions for payment call for $15,000 up front and a payment of $6,975 per month.
