    The cause of an accident at at the intersection of State Road 160 and Liberty Church Road Saturday morning is not known.
    Washington County Sheriff's Deputy Roger Newlon said brothers, Noah Wengerd, 19 and Menno Wengerd 7, were traveling west on State Road 160 when the buggy they were driving was struck in the rear by a 2002 Ford Explorer.
    The explorer was driven by Jetta Mull, 31.
     Newlon said the brothers were just leaving a residence where they had picked up chainsaw chains that they recently had sharpened.
    While there was plenty of fog in the area Saturday morning, Newlon said it wasn't a factor in the accident.
    “It was actually pretty clear and on a straight stretch were the accident occurred,” he said.

    John G. Roeder, 56, was hired Tuesday night (January 5) as the new Superintendent of the North Harrison Community Schools. The vote (5-0) by the board came quickly in a meeting that was for the purpose of hiring the new superintendent only.
    “This board has been looking for a strong superintendent who has been successful as a superintendent,” said board member Gary Byrne during the meeting. “He (Roeder) will be a strong leader for this school.”
    Byrne said that during the last year, the board had three separate searches for a new superintendent, in looking for the best possible chief.
    Roeder retired June 30 after nine years as the superintendent of the Sunman-Dearborn Community School Corporation, a system of 4.300 students in northern Dearborn County, in the Cincinnati area of Indiana.
    What drove Roeder to re-enter the education workplace was a desire to simply get involved in education again.
    “After six months, I knew the choice was to return,” Roeder said of returning to the field. “After taking some time off, I’d like another five years ion education.”
