Bridges named as new LCC coordinator

Following Thursday’s Local Coordinating Council for Safe & Drug Free Schools and Communities (LCC), only one meeting remains for coordinator Joe Jarman. Jarman assumed the head of the organization earlier this year, when former coordinator Rob Hadley stepped down following a four-year term.

During the meeting members voted to retain current officers Chet Walker President and Kristie Amos secretary. Jarman also announced his successor Bob Bridges. Bridges is no stranger to the LCC having served as coordinator a number of years ago when the local organization was formed.

Jarman gave the program for the November meeting and gave a review of the LCC accomplishments during the previous 11 months.

After thanking members for an outstanding year, Jarman said that in January the LCC was able to obtain a $5,000 increase to $20,000 to assist clubs and organizations that target drug and alcohol issues in Rush County Schools and the community. The organization is funded by state monies generated from court ordered drug and alcohol countermeasure fees.

The LCC offers monetary support to organizations through an application process must meet state mandated criteria in the areas of prevention and education, treatment and intervention, and law enforcement and justice. Those organizations receiving funding from the LCC are asked to give a presentation to members explaining how the monies assist them in meeting their needs.

Jarman next thanked Keyen Macklin and Kay Peyton of Communities that Care for their efforts in the year and also noted a number of positive outcomes of funding handed out, the RPD, county probation department and the Peer Helpers and Facilitators (PHAFF) at RCHS.

With the exception of July, the LCC meets at 1 p.m., the third Thursday monthly at the Boys & Girls Club of Rush County. The public is invited to attend.
