Schools shift personnel
With the start of school right around the corner, the Jennings County School Board has been busy approving new employees for the 2018-19 school year.
There was one surprise at their meeting on June 25. That came when Teresa Brown, Jennings County School Corp. (JCSC) superintendent, asked the board to approve transferring Nicole Johnson as the district's new director of special services.
The position became vacant earlier in the month when Jeanie Koelmel decided to move to the vacant principal position at the Jennings County Middle School.
At the same meeting when Koelmel was approved as JCMS principal, Johnson, previously prinicipal at North Ver­non Elementary School, was approved a the new principal at Scipio Ele­men­tary School.
"I don't like the chess game that is being played with our administrators," said board member Travis Shepherd prior to the vote on Johnson's new position. "I don't have anything against you personally Nikki. The problem I have is I didn't learn about this until just a while ago."

A manhunt continues as of Wednesday morning in the Commiskey-Paris Crossing area for a Madison man who eluded police in a foot chase on Tuesday.
Joseph M. Guadag­noli, 26, who is wanted on a parole warrant, fled from law enforcement officers who were investigating an alleged shooting incident.

Editor's Notebook

'We draw strength from each other'

For around 15 years, a group of over a dozen people from Jennings and Decatur counties have gathered every Wednesday morning.
Every week they meet religiously - a pun that seems most appropriate - for prayer, fellowship and breakfast. Absenteeism is virtually nil for the Wednesday Morning Breakfast Club.
"It is a group like no other I've ever been associated with," said Ruth Ann Horstman of North Vernon. "We all look forward to Wednesdays and a visit with our friends."
