  • Serving on interim committees

    Richard Young
    District 47 State Senator

    Just because the latest session has concluded at the Statehouse doesn’t mean the hard work ends. This summer and fall I have been selected to serve on several interim study committees that will conduct in-depth research and analysis on numerous complex issues facing our state.

    Dog bites and attacks –  and the associated media coverage – have created quite a stir recently. Dog bites are serious stuff and, because of their size and lack of experience around dogs, children are at a much greater risk of being bitten and sustaining injury.

    As a community, we’re smart to recognize this as an issue and work toward solutions.

  • School board: Use trust fund as it was intended

    In 2012, the state attorney general rebuked former Cannelton Schools Superintendent Al Chapman for improperly using the Dorothy von Solbrig Income Trust Fund.

    Current Superintendent Alva Sibbitt Jr. told the board June 19 a settlement agreement reached last month means the trust fund can now be used to pay any legitimate corporation bills. Almost immediately and on his recommendation, as we report in this edition, the school board voted unanimously and without discussion to spend $18,000 from the fund on legal bills.

    Thanks to those terrific Perry Central fans. Let’s continue to display good sportsmanship.

  • City should help resident cut off from home

    I am writing to comment on the (June 16) letter to the editor from my mother, Mary Hearst. She is very upset over all this and that is not good for a lady of 83 years. It worries me.

    It is true I have been talking to the street commissioner for some time about this culvert and the problem we were having with it. At first he had his workers put some blacktop on it but that really didn't do much.  But I guess it did appease us for a while.
