Unemployment in Adams County continues to be at its lowest levels in more than six years, according to the monthly jobless report issued Tuesday by the Indiana Department of Workforce Development.
Tuesday’s report set the county’s jobless rate for July at 5.1 percent, down slightly from June’s 5.3 percent reading and well below the 7.4 percent jobless rate one year earlier.
Late summer days are often referred to as Dog Days, but this year’s unseasonably cool weather has been more to the liking of this amphibian.
Bellmont volleyball opened up their season on Tuesday night with a three-set shellacking of the Bishop Dwenger Saints at the Teepee, 25-16, 25-6, 25-16.
The Squaws seemed a bit flat on the service return and fell behind 3-0 early before a missed serve gave them their first point. Senior Janaya Wilder had back-to-back kill blocks at the net to tie the game at 3-3 but Dwenger kept the Squaws on their heels through the first half of the set.
