PERRY COUNTY – The Hoosier National Forest will lower the level of several of the Middle Fork lakes this summer to work on the dams. Indian, Saddle and Tipsaw Lakes are all scheduled to have routine work on the dams and valves.
Saddle Lake may begin to be draw downs this week. The other lakes should be done by the end of August. Work on the dams may be through September, depending on rain events.
Forest Engineer Brad Lidell explained that it takes two to three weeks to do the maintenance on each dam.

LEOPOLD—Perry Central’s volleyball team has strong serving but needs to improve on receiving serves, said Coach Becky Genet.
“Our serving looks a lot better than last year, (when the Commodores finished 8-23)” she added. “We’re serving with power and we’re learning to place them better.”
She said Ryann Lynch, Terissa Roark, Brooke Mullis and Addy Davis are probably the top servers.
