    LEOPOLD—Perry Central will have a new head volleyball coach next fall, but there will still be some continuity for the team.
    Melissa James, who was an assistant coach to retiring Becky Genet the last 19 years, was selected the new head coach by the school board last Monday.
    James said she sought the position because “I coached with Mrs. Genet a long time, I just love the sport of volleyball, and I didn’t feel ready to give it up.”

  • ‘La La Land’ likely to dance away with Oscar gold

    Film Critic

     

    The Oscars will be announced Sunday, Feb. 26, so you know what that means: it’s time for me to get a bunch of predictions wrong about the winners. Seriously, I’m getting worse and worse at picking the winners, so this year, I will not label them as “predictions,” but rather as “guesses.”

    That way, it makes me feel a little better when I’m wrong. Getting the guesses right has never been the point of this yearly article, anyway.

    State Rep. Lloyd Arnold

    District 74

     

    Over the past few sessions, I have fought to give more options to parents who have children with severe epilepsy. I co-authored legislation this year that aims to help parents who are desperate to find effective treatment for their son or daughter’s medical condition.

    The bill, which recently passed out of the House Committee on Courts and Criminal Code, would give Hoosiers the ability to obtain cannabidiol oil for medical purposes without fear of prosecution.
