    Imagine having a presentation every day for a week, having to prepare for it after most of the world is in bed and be prepared to present your thoughts early the next morning. Or having to write a paper or a story or a speech every night and be prepared to present it the next morning.
    Then imagine when you are presenting your work there is a small video camera in the back of the room recording every gesture, pause and word of your presentation.
    And when you and all of your peers have concluded with your presentation an ‘expert’ who has sat quietly in the back of the room has taken pages of notes from the morning of presentations and then shares his comments with the group.
    This is exactly what took place last week at Country Lake Christian Retreat in Henryville. A group of young preachers came together at this beautiful spiritual setting for a history making preacher camp. The students were put in small groups where they were able to learn from each other and collaborate with seasoned preachers.

    Clark County Sheriff, Danny Rodden, is sponsoring a conference on teen violence.  
    Sheriff Rodden has invited author and speaker Phil Chalmers to Clark County for this presentation, “Inside the Mind of a Teen Killer”.  
    Phil Chalmers has been studying youth culture and juvenile homicide for over 20 years, and is a former police chaplain. He has written many books and produced two documentaries on youth culture.  What separates Chalmers from other speakers and writers is he actually speaks to the killers themselves, as well as their victims and relatives.  He also spends considerable time with law enforcement and investigators to find out what really happened, how we could have avoided this tragedy, study what the police did right, and learn what the police could have done different.
    Chalmers wants to teach us “Why Today’s Teens Kill”, “What Motivates Them”, and “What Warning Signs”, you should be looking for.
    For more information concerning Phil Chalmers and his programs, go to www.philchalmers.com.

County Council votes to “unappropriate” economic development funds PDF Print E-mail
Thursday, 11 June 2009 00:00
    The Washington County Council met in regular session on Monday, June 1, with all members presents.  The minutes of previous meetings and all claims were approved unanimously.
    In a 6-1 vote, the County Council voted to reverse its decision appropriating approximately $75,000 from the Economic Development Income Tax Fund (EDIT);  Jim Nice casted the dissenting vote.  Concerns were raised that a recent decision by the County Commissioners to give the Washington County Chamber of Commerce $10,000 to cover its operating budget for the remainder of the year violated the spirit of the initial agreement between the Council and the Commissioners when the earmark was approved late in 2008.  That agreement was to set aside 25 per cent of the annual funds generated by EDIT for unspecified non-roadwork economic development projects.  
    At the May 20 meeting when the Commissioners voted to approved the Chamber's request, County Council Vice-President John Fultz was present and gave enthusiastic support for the Commissioners' action saying, “The Chamber's work is an important part of economic development in the county.  We need a strong Chamber of Commerce.”      Apparently, no Council member other than Fultz was made aware of the money being given to the Chamber prior to the decision being made to do so.
