  • 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.

  • 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).

  • Tourism commission asked to consider arts funding

    Robin Humphress has been organizing and hosting stage performances in Lebanon for a couple years. She would like to make the arts a more permanent part of the community, and Monday, she turned to the Lebanon Tourist and Convention Commission for help.
    While the commission expressed appreciation for what Humphress has done and what she wants to do, it stopped short of making a firm financial commitment at its Oct. 13 meeting.
    Humphress opened her presentation by saying she has been to the commission before seeking sponsorships for specific events.
