Ball State economist Michael Hicks says September‚Äôs job numbers paints a familiar story of mixed growth.
‚ÄúThings are better, but not yet good, he says. ‚ÄúThe numbers aren‚Äôt bad as 248,000 new jobs were added last month and employment for August was revised up to 180,000 from 142,000.‚ÄĚ
While the U.S. Department of Labor announced Friday that the nation‚Äôs unemployment rate dropped to 5.9 percent from 6.1 percent, a closer examination of the underlying numbers is far less satisfying, says Hicks, director of Ball State‚Äôs Center for Economic and Business Research.
PLYMOUTH ‚Äď The Marshall County Community Foundation awarded $66,210 in grants Oct. 2 at Key Bank. The grant money was part of the second round of 2014 community fund grants to be passed out.
Ten groups were awarded funds for the year. Each representative stood and spoke for a moment about what their grant money was funding in the community.
WALKERTON ‚ÄĒ Zach Combes and Adam Dodson are Glenn‚Äôs dynamic duo.
The Falcon seniors form arguably the best running back duo in the Northern State Conference, one that is as productive, if not more, than most you‚Äôll find in the entire state of Indiana.
Combes and Dodson have combined to rush for 1,090 yards and 14 rushing touchdowns in six games this season.
‚ÄúI would like to coach for 20 or 30 more years and it‚Äôs going to be awfully difficult to have a duo better than this for the rest of my life,‚ÄĚ Glenn head coach Dave Sharpe admitted. ‚ÄúI‚Äôm enjoying this moment for sure.‚ÄĚ
