Bunker, Hill, IN -- Last month, the Maconaquah School Corporation Board of Trustees voted unanimously in favor of a new endowment fund that will support student activities for years to come.
The Future Brave Endowment Fund will begin this school year, and funds will be invested with the Northern Indiana Community Foundation (NICF), of which the Miami County Community Foundation is a fund affiliate.
“This will go to help our students in a variety of different ways,” said Maconaquah Superintendent Dr. James Callane. “It is an opportunity for our alumni and friends of Maconaquah to give to our future students.”
Callane added that he was very thankful to accept the first donation of $250 from Gibraltar Design this week.
THERE ARE TIMES…
I wrote this in 2007 and happened onto it today when I have tumbled 11 years farther down the slope I talk about. I’m grateful beyond words to still be here, to still open this Window once a week, to still enjoy the grandkids—although they’re growing up a lot faster than I like.
Thanks so much for coming.
There are times—long, achy days of a bad knee and raging sinuses and throbbing finger joints—when I resent that I’m 50some and tumbling inexorably down the wrong side of the middle age slope. Is this all there is? I whine, channeling Peggy Lee. Have I worked all these years so I could afford to go more places and see and do more things just to learn I’m too old, too sore, and too damn tired?
I have time, now that I no longer preside over carpools, hold down bleachers, or operate a short-order kitchen and 24-hour laundry, to read all I want to. I have stacks of books and magazines beside my chair, along with a strong reading lamp, a spot for my coffee cup, and a blanket to cover my cold feet. However, if I sit in one spot for more than 15 minutes, I fall asleep. Most of my reading these days is done in the car, where I feed CDs of my to-be-read list into the player and “read” all the way to work and back. I love audiobooks, and listening to them makes my commute downright enjoyable, but there’s something lacking without the reading lamp, the cup, and the blanket.
Is it too early to start thinking about great fall recipes? Warm, spicy, and sweet, this make is a guaranteed favorite for kids and adults.
This healthy version of classic pork chops is a perfect go-to Sunday supper. Not only will it be a hit with the entire family, but the cinnamon apples will leave the whole house smelling wonderful.
We hope you enjoy it.
Miami County, IN – A Peru woman who was released on her own recognizance to be able to attend an appointment for counseling was arrested on a Class A Misdemeanor charge of Battery Resulting in Bodily Injury on Wednesday afternoon.
According to a probable cause affidavit filed with the Miami County Prosecutor’s Office, Miami County Sheriff’s Department Deputy Nathan Freeman responded to a report of a physical confrontation that had started in a moving vehicle at approximately 4:34 p.m. on Wednesday, August 21, 2018. Upon locating the suspect vehicle in the 4400 block of W. 400 S., Peru, Freeman observed ISP Trooper Cole speaking with two subjects near his police vehicle. The male, whose name is redacted from the probable cause report by the prosecutor’s office, told Freeman the woman had “socked” him in the face multiple times and bit his arm. Deputy Freeman observed redness and swelling of the man’s left eye and nose area. The man then showed Freeman what appeared to be at least three separate bite marks on his arm. All three had broken the skin and drew blood. The man also had multiple scratches around his neck and to his left arm. His shirt was also soaking wet. The man told Freeman that the woman had dumped a fountain drink and an entire bottle of Sprite on him when she got mad.
Deputy Freeman asked ISP Trooper Cole to place the woman in hand restraints and she was then placed in the front seat of the Deputy’s Sheriff’s Department vehicle.
