??  ?    Local children are preparing for heading back to the classrooms. While registration for the new school year has began so has the back to school shopping. Along with the new clothes, shoes, textbooks and grade level, comes all the necessary school supplies that are needed by each student.
    For some students in the northern Clark County area that may not be such an easy task. Therefore, volunteers at the NCOC have been preparing for the third annual Backpack Blast. They have been diligently filling backpacks with donated school items.
    “We collect them and pass them on to the schools,” stated Ruthie Jackson, Director of the NCOC. “Then the schools decide who will receive the donated backpacks.”

Free broadband service to 50 homes

   On Tuesday, July 22, Lieutenant Governor Becky Skillman was in Charlestown to announce the designation of Charlestown as one of nine Hoosier communities to benefit from grants generated by the Office of Community & Rural Affairs (OCRA). In conjunction with AT&T and One Economy, the state-sponsored program will provide two years of free broadband service links for 50 homes that meet household income requirements.
    Lt. Governor Skillman spoke of new policies within state government to support and improve life in small towns and rural areas as well as a number of grant programs.
    Skillman stated, “Rural development has been my long-time passion. That’s why I’m so proud to be here today; to stand with AT&T and One Economy, and the city of Charlestown. We are announcing today that 50 Charlestown families will receive free high-speed internet access through DSL for two years. This state-wide project is only possible thanks to the generosity of AT&T and One Economy,” continued the Lt. Governor. “AT&T is going to provide this free internet server for two years and then One Economy will provide the computers if they’re needed, at a low cost. We want to make sure that this program reaches the families with the greatest need.”

?If you are in the City of Charlestown you will soon find that you can accomplish some major tasks if you row with The Flowe. David Flowe, that is. Charlestown Mayor Bob Hall appointed Flowe as his Executive Director, knowing he had an extensive background in construction. What he tapped into was a vast array of experiences in many areas and a creative mind for detail.
    Passers-by have probably noticed something is happening on the second floor of the Charlestown City Hall building. The 4,000+ square foot space has been corrected of irregular walls, partitions and uneven floors. New electrical wiring, walls and hardwood floors will soon prevail, in preparation for city officials’ offices. This will add much needed space for public access and assembly rooms, needed for the operations of the city.
