"It's not political," said Decatur Mayor John Schultz at Wednesday evening's meeting to explain property tax caps to the public. Underscoring that fact is Democratic mayor and a key Republican, County Auditor Bill Borne, joining forces to oppose putting into the Indiana Constitution a property tax caps system that Borne flatly calls "unconstitutional."
Three student groups at Adams Central High School will again sponsor a Veterans' Day program on Tuesday, November 9, at 1:30 p.m. in AC's main gymnasium.
An announcement said the guest speaker will be retired command sergeant-major Frederick "Fritz" Bultemeyer of rural Decatur, who served in Vietnam and Afghanistan.
Sponsors of the event are the AC History Club, AC's chapter of the National Honor Society, and the school's chapter of the Sunshine Society.
"We'll be ready to play. I'll be very shocked if we're not," stated Bellmont football coach Rick Burkhalter as his Braves prepare to meet the state's No. 1 3A team, Eastbrook, Friday night at Bob Worthman Stadium.
A year ago, the Braves apparently were not ready for the Eastbrook style in a stunning 34-0 loss in the sectional title game. Eastbrook later lost to eventual state champ West Lafayette.
"There's probably any number of teams that could win it," stated Churubusco coach Lee Etzler on Sectional 35's possibilities for a champ.
"There are quite a few teams that have shown good success this year. The team that wins is going to have to show up each and every week with their A-game, that's for sure," said Etzler whose Churubusco Eagles play host to Adams Central Friday night in one of the early critical games. The No. 3 Eagles come in at 8-1, while the improving Jets are 7-2.
