North Dearborn Elementary to close: As was widely expected, the Sunman-Dearborn School Board voted 5-2 on Nov. 20 to close the North Dearborn Elementary building as of the next school year. The action was taken to deal with declining enrollment and the subsequent decrease in state funding. The vote came after a contentious meeting attended by nearly 100 people and at which some parents accused the board of having made its decision before listening to what they had to say.

Courthouse plans: Dearborn County Council members and Commissioners, at a meeting Nov. 18, saw a range of options for the possible expansion of the historic county courthouse to address space and securiy issues. Seven options, ranging in cost from $2 million to nearly $13 million, were presented by the DLZ architectural firm of Indianapolis and Maxwell Construction of Lawrenceburg. No decision was made, and the discussion is likely to continue at a Jan. 13 meeting of the Council.
