    A familiar workforce strategy is now being offered to high-school students while addressing a need in the labor market.

    Internships are not just for college students anymore. In Noblesville, high-school Principal Jeff Bryant said one-third of last year’s senior class earned school credit with internships during the school day.

    “We’re changing the idea that we’re just graduating students,” Bryant declared.

    I’ve yet to meet Charles Schnell in person but I regularly get letters from the man who has double personas, “Cowboy Tex” and “Super Commodore.” A recent note shared news of the Jasper man and retired Perry Central teacher marking 70 years in music.

    Schnell, who recently marked his 84th birthday, said he is producing his first music compact disc with 11 of the 94 songs he has composed since 2002.

  • EDITORIAL: School board asleep at the wheel in Cannelton

    It’s unlikely Marion “Al” Chapman will stand trial on charges of theft or official misconduct. As the News reported last month, Chapman signed a plea agreement in which he pleaded guilty to two counts of misconduct in return for theft charges being dismissed.

    If Judge Lucy G. Coffinet accepts the agreement when Chapman is due to be sentenced this month, the former superintendent of Cannelton City Schools will receive a suspended prison sentence and probation. In other words, he won’t serve any additional jail time.
