?    The Lanesville Board of School Trustees agreed Tuesday (June 17) to allow the Harrison County Tobacco Prevention and Cessation Coalition to take a survey of Lanesville school students this fall.
    The Youth Tobacco Survey is taken every even numbered year, in grades 6 through 12.
    Program Coordinator Jennifer Riley said that only two to five classrooms would be needed for the survey, and
added that the survey takes only about an hour.
    Riley said, “Recent surveys show a decrease in youth smoking rates. The cigarette tax last year has helped
a lot.”

    ?For 15 years, the Farm Bureaus of Washington, Harrison, and Crawford counties have met in June to discuss
a topic regarding modern public education with education officials from the three counties.
    This year’s meeting was held Wednesday (June 18) at the Central Barren United Methodist Church, and the topic was regarding the recent changes the Indiana Legislature has made regarding school funding. Although the amount of monies the various school districts will get is probably not going to change much from recent years, beginning on January 1, 2009, the State of Indiana will begin funding every school district’s General Fund.
    Among the school officials present at the meeting, the exact changes to occur after the funding change are still up in the air.

?    In life, Michael Becher loved to help people. “It was his favorite thing about being in law enforcement,” says his wife, Sara Becher. “He was actually in a position to help people. He used to say, ‘I didn’t get them into this trouble. I can’t get them out. But I can help them through.’”
    Becher died November 2, 2007, not even a year after retiring as the Clark County sheriff, a position he held for
a record four terms. He was well-known, loved and respected for having a giving spirit and for mentoring those coming along behind him in law enforcement.
