At the watering hole
The City of Westfield Parks and Recreation Superintendent, Chris McConnell began updating the department’s five-year master plan and knew he wanted to more engagement with local school administrations and the students. Westfield was looking to replace Asa Bales Park, located near the middle and high school. McConnel reached out to the Student Council Sponsors of Westfield Middle School and got “public input” from the very students the City hoped would be the end user of the park.

McConnell brought three designs to the Student Council meeting on December 13 and the students began asking questions about budget, how existing landscaping and greenspace would be affected, and if improvements would be made to the restrooms.

One design was overwhelmingly popular, receiving all but one vote between the 7th and 8th grade representatives. The city hopes to open the new playground by Memorial Day weekend and include the students in the ribbon- cutting ceremony.

The Indiana House Public Health committee voted in favor during a Jan. 29 session to increase the state’s smoking age from 18-21. A portion of the bill was removed before the final vote was cast, which would have hiked the state’s cigarette tax by $2 a pack.

Westfield High School sophomore Sydney Clifford was on of six people to speak before the Indiana House panel, which voted in favor of the measure just days earlier. Clifford explained to the panel how kids are beginning to smoke earlier these days and the schools are dealing with the problem of e-cigarettes and juuls.

Clifford hopes to encourage her peers to get involved in politics and in legislation that’s going to affect them.
