Serving the people with integrity
The Pharos-Tribune gives this Rose to Delphi Community School Corp.:
The Delphi Community School Board explored the possibility of instituting a balanced calendar, with one- or two-week breaks between quarters and a shorter summer break.
Board members sought input from parents and residents.
What they found was opposition. Many in the community had concerns that it wouldn’t mesh well with neighboring schools and saddle shared vocational and special education programs with problems.
So the board dropped it, opting to stick with the traditional schedule the community was more comfortable with. We give them a Rose for asking for and then honestly listening to the community it serves.
Dedicated to putting city on the right trail
The Pharos-Tribune give this Rose to community organizers heading up ongoing trail bridge project:
Construction of a bridge that will connect the Eel River Run trail and River Bluff Trail over the Eel River has gotten under way.
It will cross the river on the east side of Riverside Park, will be 10 feet wide, about 300-feet long. Community organizers sought out and won a $1.2 million match grant, and the family of Logansport businessman Milt Cole stepped up with the match.
The bridge will connect Riverside Park and the trails on the south side, and the hospital trail and the preserve and Huston Park on the north side.
In essence, it will establish a more complete trail system within the city. Larger communities are often able to boast such trail systems, but it’s a rarity in communities our size.
If it weren’t for a committed few driving the progress, we wouldn’t be able to brag.
Thanks to Vicki Byrd, vice president for planning and development at Logansport Memorial Hospital; Jan Fawley, Logansport parks administrator; and Mercedes Brugh, chairwoman of the Eel River Run Committee, for giving Logansport such bragging rights.
