??    For the 2008-2009 school year, Scottsburg High School will be implementing a program called Career Clusters.
    Career Clusters involves community volunteers in several different career sectors.
    According to Jennifer Mills, who is coordinating Career Clusters, there has been a wonderful response rate to volunteers for this program already, but there are a few key career clusters that still need  representation from the local community to fully engage and match students’ selected interests.
    Volunteers are still needed to cover students who are interested in participating in clusters devoted to agriculture, veterinary science, music, design, medical doctor, nursing, dentist, pharmacy, science, and engineering.

?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.
