    The Southmont Board of Trustees met Tuesday night to hear the proposed 2017 budget for the school corporation.
    Kristin Charles, the corporation’s Director of Business and Human Relations presented the budget to the board.
    “This is just a budget hearing, it can still change before it is adopted,” Charles explained to the board. “Overall, the general fund is down 1 percent from 2016, but the new contracts have been accounted for in it. That’s great news.”
    Charles was accompanied by Mike Reuter, a financial consultant who assisted with the budget process. Reuter was on hand to help clarify some of the things for the board.

    The Montgomery County Commissioners wasted no time working through business Monday morning at the courthouse. Very little action was taken at the meeting. They simply approved accounts payable and payroll, renewed a contract and made two appointments. 
    The commissioners voted unanimously to appoint Jamie Barton to the Health Board, but had disagreement on the other appointment. President Jim Fulwider and Commissioner Phil Bane voted in favor of reappointing Dave Rhoads to the Drainage Board. Commissioner Terry Hockersmith opposed the appointment, stating “I still believe that this position should be held by an elected official and I will vote as such.”

    Doctors told David Bowers that he had a pretty low chance of surviving the severe burns he sustained in an on-the-job accident in 1999. Sixteen years later he and his wife wrote a book about hope and staying positive in the face of tragedy. That book is due to be released at a signing on Oct. 1.

    “If you only fix the things on the surface what might you have in 20 years? What might you have when the shininess of all the new things wears off?” Mayor Todd Barton rhetorically asked the crowd gathered at Crawfordsville’s Stellarbration Friday morning at Marie Canine Plaza.
