'Obamacare' premiums up, choices drop
WASHINGTON (AP) - Premiums will go up sharply next year under President Barack Obama's health care law, and many consumers will be down to just one insurer, the administration confirmed Monday.

Before taxpayer-provided subsidies, premiums for a midlevel benchmark plan will increase an average of 25 percent across the 39 states served by the federally run online market, according to a report from the Department of Health and Human Services. Some states will see much bigger jumps, others less.

It came down to Southwood again.

Clerk: Voter registrations here all OK
The likelihood of voter registration or election fraud happening in Fulton County is very small, said Fulton County Clerk's office employees Friday.

First, said Fulton County Clerk Teri Furnivall, Fulton County keeps its voter registration information in-house so nobody could hack it through the internet. "We don't have electronic poll books. We're not hooked up to the internet. It's all in-house," Furnivall said.

$12.9 million plan OK'd
The Fulton County Auditor's office submitted Wednesday the county's 2017 budget to the Indiana Department of Local Government Finance, or DLGF.

A budget of $12,949,796 for 2017 was adopted by the Fulton County Council on Tuesday. The DLGF has the final say on how much money the county can budget and how much it can raise through property taxes. The proposed local tax levy for budget year 2017, tax year 2016, equals $5,318,521.

For residents in Fulton County, the estimated tax rate - per $100 of assessed property value - will be .5198, which equals $519.80 for homes with an assessed value of $100,000.

Presidential debate fact check
WASHINGTON (AP) - Donald Trump painted an inaccurately dark portrait of manufacturing in America while Hillary Clinton stretched credulity in boasting that her spending plans won't add to the country's debt. As well, both struggled in the presidential final debate to explain comments from their past.

RHS has 'ton' of fun, wins regional again

COVINGTON - The Rochester volleyball team relied on unity during its regional match against host Covington Tuesday.

They needed the unity - unity to power themselves through the moments so loud they couldn't hear themselves think, unity to keep the opponent off-balance, unity to keep the ball off the floor.

The end result was a Lady Z 25-13, 25-17, 25-17 sweep that sends them to the semistate for the second straight year and the third time in the last five years.

Sailors, Pfeiffer building chemistry

Maddy Sailors is not just another swimmer on the Rochester girls swimming team. Sailors qualified for state each of the last two years.

Caston's Rans wins semistate
NEW CARLISLE - Caston sophomore Mitchell Rans has won races before. But nothing like this.

As he came to the finish line at the New Prairie semistate Saturday, he joyously outstretched his arms, smiled and stuck his tongue out and crossed the finish line in 15:50 to become his school's first semistate champ ever.

Small comes up big in Oak Hill win

The Oak Hill football team's victory over host Rochester in a Class 2A, Sectional 34 quarterfinal was no Small feat.

Rather it was a big ground game from Alex Small, who ran for 278 yards and three touchdowns on 10 carries as the Golden Eagles blanked Rochester 48-0 at Barnhart Field Friday. Noah King also had two touchdown runs for the Golden Eagles.

Rouch, Towne help key RHS sweep

The Rochester volleyball team was familiar with Northfield before their Class 2A, Sectional 37 quarterfinal meeting Thursday.

They reminded the Lady Norse how good they were.

Lewis Cass will play Southwood in the first semifinal at 11 a.m., and the semifinal winners will return at 7 p.m. in the sectional final.
