BCS Schools finish fiscal year in black

For the first time in 5 years, the Benton-Carroll-Salem Local Schools ended the fiscal year without deficit spending. After many years of using up cash reserves, the board along with administration began the long, painstaking task to reduce expenses. In the span of one year, expenses were reduced by nearly 12%, which played the largest part in ending the deficit spending trend. 

Treasurer Tim Coffman stated, “While it is certainly great to have eliminated deficit spending this past year, it is a trend we would like to see continued and we will work very hard to try and make that happen.”

Lenny Thom and Jack Kennedy

Aug. 2, 2013, will mark the 70th anniversary of what was initially filed away in the U.S Navy history as a seemingly minor incident. Instead, the story later helped propel a rather obscure son of a well-known American diplomat into that of war hero and household name, to senator, and finally president of the United States in 1960. U.S. Navy Lt. Junior Grade John Fitzgerald Kennedy was about to become famous, and join the ranks of our nation’s Greatest Generation.
