New iPads motivate kids to learn

February 2, 2012

BREMEN – Bremen Public Schools has found an exciting new way to motivate students to learn.
The school recently purchased 110 iPad2 devices with $65,000 in funds awarded through a state grant.
“The students really want to use them,” said Angela Balsley, Special Services Director. “They are new, novel, fun. Students are very motivated and interested in it.”
The students aren’t the only ones excited about the new technology.

Wastewater, town focused on leaks

February 2, 2012

BREMEN — White Star Cruise Line Vice President P.A.S. Franklin claimed he believed the vessel Titanic to be unsinkable and reportedly — he said that as the ship sat on the bottom of the ocean. When Town of Bremen representatives were told in 2010 that the bio (biological oxidation) towers included in its $2.86 million wastewater facility repair, replacement and refurbishment plan were said to be watertight, they believed it — and like the tragic cruise ship’s representatives — continued to believe … until the leaking began.

Stark in the park

January 27, 2012

The local playground appears stark and forlorn last Friday as the untouched ground merely remembers the shouts of playful children. The overcast skies brought winds of 10 to 15 miles per hour and with it a chill that plummeted temperatures to 2 degrees at lunchtime. Forecasts at the time expected even more snow.

Joint site to offer more convenience

January 27, 2012

Wagner takes legal helm for Town of Bremen

January 27, 2012

BREMEN — Attorney Anthony Wagner was recently selected by the Town of Bremen to take the helm from Marshall County Prosecuting Attorney David Holmes who had represented the town for decades.
Though filling those shoes may seem a daunting task, Wagner is no stranger to having big shoes to fill — his father Mark has been an attorney in the area for years and partner with Wyland, Humphrey, Wagner and Clevenger LLC. The younger Wagner Esquire holds his own as an associate of the same firm; he has plenty of experience; and proves he is up to the challenge.
