Thanks for help in relocation
Our superintendent of schools, Dan Tanoos, has a plate full of problems to deal with every day. He deals with children, state rules, bus drivers, cafeteria workers, teachers, maintaining and repairing buildings, and many other groups of citizens.
Somehow he is able to keep grounded and he listens to immediate and far-reaching problems every day. He addresses complaints squarely and with common sense. When the Educational Heritage Association presented its housing problem, he assured us we would have adequate room to house our increasing collection of Vigo County school memorabilia. With the encouragement of Mick Newport, administrator, and Jackie Lower, school board member, the superintendent conducted a principals’ meeting at the EHA Museum located in Sugar Creek Consolidated School in order to personally view the museum.
With the support of Principal Suzanne Marrs and VCSC General Services Director Franklin Fennell, our one-room museum was moved to two adjoining rooms. We are indebted to all the administration and staff who made this move possible.
Jim and his moving crew of summer helpers arrived at 7:15 a.m.. Cameron, Larry and Tay were strong, polite, cooperative men from ISU’s football team. They were helped by Consolidated’s own great custodians, Dennis, Mike and Ken.
After a full day of heavy labor moving files, photo cabinets, computers, big trophies and boxes of school memorabilia, we were finally relocated.
Thank you, Danny Tanoos, for your support and vision, Mick Newport for your organization skills, Suzanne Marrs for your hospitality and the seven men who skillfully did the heavy work to relocate our museum. You did it willingly and with good humor and we appreciate your help.
You are all welcome to visit our museum at the new location in rooms 214 and 215 in Sugar Creek Consolidated School.

Fire victim will be missed by all
I was one of the residents on the sixth floor at Garfield Towers.
Fred Poore always made it a point to ask me and the other residents, “How are you doing?” And he never forgot our names.
Fred Poore will be missed by all of us. He was the sweetest guy we ever knew. Fred is safe in God’s arms today and forever.
