State Line Road closed: State Line Road is closed between the two intersections with Augusta Drive until around Oct. 15 for repairs to a slip. Detours include Augusta Drive and Georgetown Road. The Sheriff's Department has increased patrols and installed speed trailers in the area. UPDATE ON LITTER CLEANUP ON STATE LINE: There will not be a need for local volunteers to pick up litter along the road during the closure as Community Corrections will be doing the clean-up as a community service event before the road re-opens. Thank you to the Community Corrections program for this service and to local volunteers who offered to help if necessary after The Beacon proposed that the road closure be used as an opportunity to clean up litter.
Sunman-Dearborn enrollment: At Sunman-Dearborn School Board meetings over the summer, Interim Superintendent Dr. John Williams sounded the alarm about declining enrollment and warned that "difficult choices" would have to be made. Now that the latest numbers are in -- 3,575, down 113 from the 2013-14 school year -- "all options are on the table" for a discussion at the next board meeting on Oct. 9.
