A bill authored by State Rep. Matt Lehman, R-Berne, to allow school corporations to sell vacant school buildings after the building is made available for sale or lease to a charter school for at least two years was signed into law by Gov. Mike Pence this week.

MONROE—The Bellmont girls collected blue ribbons a plenty Thursday evening in its opening triangular outdoor track meet of the season winning 12 of the 15 events but still edged out Jay County by just 10 points winning 76-66 over the Pats, while host Adams Central garnered just 11 points.
The performance was a near repeat of last year's meet but had a different team winner this year as Jay County won in 2012 despite a lopsided collection of "blues" for the Squaws.
