Replacing A Batesville City Council Member

first_imgA caucus will be held in the coming weeks to elect a new District 3 City Council member in Batesville.Bob Narwold accepted a city position with the Batesville Buildings Department earlier this month, vacating his seat due to state law prohibiting city employees from serving on council.District 3 is located in both Ripley and Franklin counties. Officials will figure out which county has the larger population, and that will determine which county will preside over the caucus.Ripley County Republican Chairman Ginger Bradford said a caucus will be held in both counties if a candidate from Ripley County and a candidate from Franklin County file for the vacant seat.To be eligible for election a person must reside in District 3 and also be in good standing with the Republican Party, Bradford added. If interested in filing for the council seat call Bradford at (812) 756-0778.Batesville resident Jim Fritsch has filed in Ripley County for District 3 council seat, Bradford said.The plan is to have the vacated position filled by the next city council meeting on April 14.last_img read more

Government donates footballs to school

first_imgAs part of governments desire to improve sporting performance in our Senior High schools and beyond, the Deputy Youth and Sports Minister Dr Omane Boamah has donated 15 Footballs each to selected Senior High Schools in Accra.The presentation ceremony was attended by various Heads of some Senior High Schools and their students.In his address, Dr Boamah bemoaned the performances of athletes who represented the nation over the years and challenged students to do more to raise high the flag of Ghana.He regretted the poor preparations of Ghanaian athletes ahead of major tournaments which he said culminated in these abysmal performances.He also charged the various sports tutors to do no more to unearth talents as was the case in the past in order to propel Ghana sports forward.He added that the donations were just the beginning and that Government intended to donate up to 39,000 to schools all over the country to help grow the sport of football. “It is unfortunate we have not been able to make it in international competitions that is why it is extremely important for us to start preparations for upcoming competitions early and take them very seriously.A country like Jamaica has only three million people and yet look at what they have been doing the last few years with the Bolts and the Blakes. If we put our minds to it, i don’t see why we can’t make it to the very top he stressed.”A representative of the Minister of Education was also on hand to encourage the students and tutors to do more to raise the image of the nation through sports.last_img read more
