$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.

Funds OK'd for tourism site design

It was unanimously approved by the council and will be used to pay for design of the website. The transfer basically moves money from one line item to another within the commission's budget.

RHS, NM among top teams

Of the two volleyball teams in the Sentinel area earning poll votes on the eve of sectionals, one might be considered a traditional power and the other might be considered a newcomer on the scene.

The traditional power is Rochester, who made it to the semistate final last year in Class 2A and spent the entire regular season in the top 10 this year. The newcomer might be North Miami. The Lady Warriors are ranked No. 12 in Class 1A and are in search of their first sectional title since 2002.

ARGOS - Boys soccer has been an IHSAA class sport for six years, and they haven't held a Class 1A semistate yet that didn't include Argos.

But with RHS trailing the entire game and with the offensive line unable to open holes in the running game, Grant said he had little choice.

"We just didn't have any kind of push up front," Grant said. "That was the biggest problem."
