Two local schools achieve elite four star status
West Central High School and Eastern Pulaski Elementary School were both included in Indiana Superintendent of Public Instruction Glenda Ritz’s announcement of Indiana’s Four Star schools for 2013.
In order to achieve this designation, a school must be in the top 25th percentile of schools in ISTEP+ testing results.
Flushing out the problem
There’s more than toilet paper being flushed into local sewer systems and it’s causing major concerns for local municipalities that are in charge of those systems.
At a Medaryville town meeting, maintenance supervisor Keith Hauptli warned council members that the sewer pumps are being plugged by what appears to be cloth wipes or cloth pads. The wipes or pads don’t shred like toilet paper and get caught in the sewer system pumps.
Sheriff invites public to remember fallen officers
Remembering those who have died in the line of duty will continue under the watch of Pulaski County Sheriff Mike Gayer as the public is invited to attend a Fallen Officers’ Memorial Day Service on Tuesday, May 28 at noon.
The tradition of the ceremony that began in 2007 is to remember those who have been killed in the line of duty not only locally but all those who protect and serve.
Tracking valuable items one serial number at a time
At a time when identifiers are needed regarding stolen items, most victims may not be thinking clearly enough to give police enough information.
As a way to help citizens keep track of their items, the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office has teamed up with a system that allows residents to register or document information that could later be used to identify stolen property. The registration with “ReportIt” is free and helps keep track of valuable personal property.
