FROM THE DESK OF MAYOR McDONALD

“I had a fellow stop by the office today want to make us aware of a mail scam from what is suppose to be Bank of America. The envelope and the document look very real, the request was for information such as D.O.B. SSN address, etc. what tipped him off was the PO box on the return envelope, it was not BA’s he called them and verified 1) they had not requested such information. 2) the PO box number was wrong. Most people would have sent this info without thinking because it looks legit. WARNING, before you give such information out call the legitimate institution, do not call number provided on such documents, and please never give any personal information over the telephone.

Maintaining good physical balance is important, especially to those over 55. We know that when our balance is jeopardized, even slightly, we lose confidence in our abilities. This fear of falling and general loss of balance are likely to result in a fall that causes minor/major injuries. So, what exactly is balance and how does it work? Balance is “the ability to maintain the body’s center of mass over its base of support”. Balance is a complicated network within your body maintained by a set of sensorimotor control systems, including three main areas:
Vision (sight) – Your sensory receptors are located in the retina called rods and cones. Rods are believed to help with low light situations such a night time whereas cones help with color and the finer details. The rods and cones provide visual cues and send signals to the brain on how a person is in relationship to the world around them. Shadows, lighting, depth perception, all factor in to your vision’s job to maintain balance.
Proprioception (touch, spatial awareness) – Sensors all over your body allows your brain to know its position in “space”. For example, how your feet/legs are positioned compared to the ground and your head compared to shoulders/chest due to sensors sensitive to stretch/pressure in muscles, tendons and joints. Without these “proprioceptive sensors” one wouldn’t know if a surface was uneven or slippery and would not be able to multi-task, such as driving or eating as we would be too focused on using one body part at a time.
Vestibular System (equilibrium, motion) – Components in the inner ear tell the brain about the movements and position of your head. The inner ear detects gravity as well sends signals to the brain when there is movement, such as head rotation, etc. When the systems are both working properly, they send symmetrical impulses to the brain to maintain balance. Sometimes if someone has a virus or ear infection, it can cause vertigo due to the improper functioning of that particular ear.
How These Systems Work Together:
With balance, it’s sometimes difficult to know if there is an issue with one of these three systems, because they work together, and sometimes compensate for each other, to give you maximum support.
Example 1: If you are unable to successfully lift your leg to go up a 6″ step without looking down, there may be a proprioception issue that needs to be addressed.
Example 2: If you can stand still with your eyes open, but seem dizzy or off balance when they’re closed, there could be a vestibular system issue that needs to be addressed.
Common Risk Factors of Poor Balance: • Medications Causing Dizziness • Foot Pain/Poor Footwear • Lower Body Weakness Hypertension/Cardiac Conditions • Vision Issues • Difficulty Walking & Balancing • Hazards in Your Home

East Allen County Schools Project to Proceed Without Ballot Question


On June 7, 2016, the Board of Trustees of the East Allen County School Corporation passed resolutions to construct and finance the construction of the 2017 Multi-Facility Safety, Security, Efficiency, Construction and Restoration Project, which includes the renovation of and improvements to New Haven High School, Southwick Elementary School, Cedarville Elementary School, Leo Elementary School, Leo Jr./Sr. High School, Heritage Jr./Sr. High School, Woodlan Jr./Sr. High School, Paul Harding Junior High School/East Allen University, and Prince Chapman Academy and the construction of a New Haven Intermediate School.

The project was approved without a referendum, which means the taxpayer protection of the constitutional property tax caps will remain in place for taxpayers of East Allen County Schools. A referendum will not be required for the project to proceed because the School Corporation did not receive a valid petition pursuant to Indiana Code 6-1.1-20-3.5. All taxpayers who own property that has reached the property tax cap will see no increase in their taxes as a result of this project. Most importantly, East Allen County Schools are now able to provide a safer and healthier learning environment for area youth that compliments the district’s reputation for academic excellence.
