Eastwood welcomed a delegation from the Moroccan Center for Civic Education this winter.

Five delegates came to the school to see how American’s were taught and also how they turned learning into experience.

The Moroccan Center for Civic Education was founded in 2003. Its main focus is to educate and train students for real-world situations.

One delegate stated that it was not teaching the students that was the problem. It was implementing what they were taught into real-world situations.

Voters in the Benton-Carroll-Salem School District will see an emergency operating levy on the May ballot.

The B-C-S school board has unanimously voted to place the $1.32 million, 5-year issue on the ballot in the hopes of fending off a projected budget deficit in fiscal year 2013.

Tied to the board’s decision to seek the millage was another recent decision to realign the district by closing Rocky Ridge Elementary School.

That move, board members say, will help the district save revenue and reduce the amount sought in the levy.

 
Northwood - 2010 marked mostly by budget cuts, downsizing

Following a year of austere budget tightening measures, Northwood ended 2010 with a balanced budget, Mayor Mark Stoner said in his state of the city address last week.

“The message for 2011 is one of both challenge and confidence,” said Stoner.

“Just like our citizens, the city has been adversely affected by the economic downturn of the last few years. To meet the various challenges, council and I have had to make difficult decisions regarding reductions in spending, personnel and capital improvement projects,” said Stoner.

The reductions allowed the city to finish the 2010 fiscal year with higher revenues than expenditures and met the requirement of having a balanced budget, he said.
