Volunteers Make A
Difference For Area Couple
A group of volunteers has made a huge difference in the lives of area couple Ron and Tara Rowe. This group spent an entire day on Sunday, Sept. 18, at the Rowe house helping with projects that needed to be done.
"This was all the stuff I was going to do when I retired," said Ron Rowe. "It's humbling. We're just so grateful. It's more than we expected from anyone."
The odd part for the Rowes is that normally, they were the people on the other end of something like this. They have spent their lives volunteering and helping others, especially in their church.
This is why members of Shepherd of the Hills Church have rallied around the couple. They felt it was time that the Rowes had some help.
Everything started four years ago. Ron was in upper Michigan on a business trip when he was struck by a car while crossing the street. He was severely injured, spending five days in intensive care, two more weeks in a Minnesota hospital and another week at St. Agnes hospital. Ron then had another year and three months of physical therapy and rehabilitation.

Peter Schmidt and Brian Mase put some new stone steps in place outside of the Ron and Tara Rowe house outside of Eden on Sunday, Sept. 18. About 30 friends came out to help the couple with some projects that have been left undone because of some major medical issues for both Ron and Tara.

2016-2017 School Tax Levy
On a 20-6 vote, the electorate of the Campbell-sport School District approved the tax levy for the 2016-2017 school year. The levy amount approved was $9,557,834.
This levy is $245,824 higher that the one approved for the 2015-2016 school year.
During the budget presentation, members of the audience had questions about some increases in certain areas of the budget. With the resignation of the district's business manager about two months ago, district administrator Paul Amund-son tried to answer the questions. Audience members were not happy as Amundson struggled to located the specific areas that were questioned.
