For some inexplicable reason, there were no newspapers, neither The Sun nor the North Vernon Plain Dealer, to be found from the week of Aug. 24, 1916, in the files at the Jennings County Public Library. We found this synopsis of the Jennings County Schools from a series published in The Sun in 1912 quite interesting and thought readers would enjoy it. Thanks to Sheila Kell of the library staff for forwarding this to us. Monday, August 29, 2016
