  • On the job

    While Marion County students enjoyed a break from classes last week, many of them found another way to continue their education. Several students in Project Lead the Way participated in co-ops at local businesses and industries.
    At Angell Demmel, junior Chris Piekarski and senior Brandon O’Daniel were assigned with coming up with a way to ship parts for a Lexus vehicle overseas without damaging them. They also got to try their hand at designing a crate in AutoCAD (a computer-aided design and drafting program).

  • School board, District 2: Attorney, teacher vie for seat

    The District Two seat on the Marion County Board of Education has been vacant since then-chairman Michael Mullins resigned in May. Two candidates are vying to fill that seat in the Nov. 4 election, teacher Angela Carter and attorney Kaelin Reed.
    Both candidates agree that the school board needs to rebuild its relationship with the public, and both believe they have the background to help.
    According to Carter, people go see a cardiologist if they have a heart problem. Likewise, she thinks an educator could help with education problems.

  • School board, District 3: Incumbent, challenger both value integrity

    Butch Cecil was appointed last year to fill the remainder of Ed Hacker’s term as the District Three representative on the Marion County Board of Education.
    Cecil would like to remain in that seat, but he is facing a challenge from Dennis Hagan, who has been a critic of recent actions within the school system.
    Cecil has served on the school board for 10 months because he wants to be involved with improving the district.
    “I want to focus on continuing those improvements and hopefully to bring some stability to this board,” he said.
