    Trustee ride-along with District 5

    One of our Anderson Township Trustees, Josh Gerth, went on a “ride along” with District 5 recently. Josh was kind enough to share his experience, and some of what he learned during his night “on the job”. From Josh Gerth, Anderson Township Trustee: It was a cold, dark and stormy night in Anderson Township… ahhh who am I kidding, it was a very pleasant night in Anderson Township.  Actually, a little chilly so I needed a jacket. I arrived at District 5 at 7 PM and met up with Deputy Jason Hovekamp. Our first stop was the briefing room where…

    Brigadoon comes to Anderson High School

    Imagine waking up one morning to discover that one hundred years had passed since you went to sleep the night before. It is the same the next morning, and the next. What wonders would you see?
