INMAN- Payton Truitt and Beth Balzer, seniors at Inman High School, wanted to raise awareness about domestic violence and sexual assault.

For their senior project, the two teenagers brought representatives from the Sexual Assault/Domestic Violence (SA/DV) Center, located in Hutchinson, to speak to students Thursday, Dec. 7, at the IHS Auditorium.

“I think it happens in Inman,” Truitt said. “We’re in a small town and it is something that’s not talked about.”

Balzer said it was “a good thing for students to learn,” especially since sexual assault has been mentioned frequently in the news at a national level.

“I think it’s a topic that needs to be brought up,” Truitt said. “There needs to be an awareness.”

Kessler said he could not provide any details on the drug case since they are still in the investigative stages.

“Criminal cases are down a little bit this year,” Kessler said.

Kessler told council members all felony cases and all domestic violence cases the department handles would go to district court.

“Anything can go to district court,” Kessler said.

INMAN - A children’s craft, Christmas stories, popcorn and nutcrackers will be part of the activities taking place at the Inman Public Library as part of Christmas in Inman Saturday, Dec. 16.

Children will be able to work on a Christmas-themed craft from 5-6 p.m.

“Any age who wants to take part can do it,” Inman Librarian Donna Sallee said.

Parents can assist their children with the craft.

Sallee said they planned to wrap up craft activities at 6 p.m. since that is when Santa Claus will arrive at the Inman Museum to listen to children’s Christmas wishes.

She noted children could stay to work on their craft item as long as they want.

Sallee said she wanted to give children a chance to visit Santa before starting Christmas story time.  She will select several children’s books to read.

She added the books would be geared toward younger children.

When the library is open during Christmas in Inman – 6-8 p.m. – anyone who checks out a movie will receive a free bag of popcorn. There will be a limit of one bag of popcorn, Sallee said.
