MSD of Wabash County recently received a report from a class at Manchester University on how the school district’s patrons would like to be communicated with.


Assistant Superintendent of Finance Chris Kuhn presented the findings during MSD’s school board meeting on Tuesday, Jan. 22. The main question asked by MSD administrators was what were some of the best modes of communication for its clientele.


Students at MU surveyed 562 people to collect answers to the question. Some were surveyed face to face, but most were surveyed online.


The surveys focused on three questions: What are the effective channels of communication to utilize? What information is most pertinent to recipients of the communication efforts? And, how can MSD become more inclusive with its communication?

NORTH MANCHESTER -- A North Manchester business will soon be expanding its practice with a new physician and medical techniques.


Brody Reinholt recently joined the Anthony Chiropractic family, and brings knowledge of acupuncture and dry needle treatments to the business.


“Acupuncture is the movement of energy in the body through the use of needles and specific points,” Reinholt said. “I see it, from my evidence-based perspective, the needles will influence the blood flow, [and] that’s where the nutrients are.


“It promotes healing. It helps for so many other things – some are far-fetched – but that’s where I look at research.”
