    “I was just kinda reminiscing,” stated Kathy Wesson as she demonstrated how she was peering into the Clark County Recorder’s Office with her neck outstretched and eyes wide.
    She recalled, “It was after four and the building was pretty much empty. I had just went downstairs from jury duty and was looking at the pictures. Then Dick Jones asked me if he cold help me.”
    That one question posed in June 2008 has now been answered.
    Yes, Jones could help Wesson and she could help him.
    Wesson proceeded to ask Jones if he knew that he was missing a picture of a Clark County Recorder.
    “My mom’s picture was not there,” Wesson stated.
    Wesson’s mom, Catherine Poff, took over the responsibility of the Clark County Recorder after her husband, Julius, was drafted by the Navy in 1942 to defend our country during World War II. While Julius was protecting his country on the Battleship New Mexico, Catherine proceeded to tackle the job of Recorder and mother of five children ranging in age from 10 years to 15 months old.
    The thought of taking over for her husband was natural. The entire family jumped in to help take care of the family’s 26 acre farm in St. Joe with the help of Grandpa William Poff.

Governor Daniels announces termination of state’s contract with IBM for delivery of welfare services PDF Print E-mail

    Governor Mitch Daniels announced recently the state has terminated its contract with IBM for the delivery of welfare services. The contract was canceled because the company did not make satisfactory progress to improve services to welfare applicants and recipients under a plan to correct deficiencies.
    In its place, the Family and Social Services Administration will go to a hybrid system that will incorporate successful elements of the old welfare delivery system and what is known as the modernized system. The hybrid system will include more face?to?face contact and more localized team?based case management.
    “The fraud appears to have been stopped and we’re still on track to save taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars, but the intended service improvements have not been delivered, and that’s not acceptable,” said Daniels. “Those who raised concerns about service quality were correct and we appreciate their efforts. We’ll now take the best parts of the old and new and move ahead with a hybrid system in what amounts to a major mid?course correction.”
