Bruce Stahly, Horizon Education Alliance senior adviser for finance, speaks to the Elkhart County Board of Commissioners on Monday.

GOSHEN — County officials approved $300,000 in funding for three organizations, including Horizon Education Alliance following weeks of accusations from one resident that it “brainwashes children.”

The Elkhart County Board of Commissioners voted Monday to appropriate $100,000 each for HEA, Center for Community Justice and Council on Aging. The money comes from the Environmental Special Projects fund, which benefits from user fees at the Elkhart County Landfill.

The fund is titled "Environmental Special Projects"....Of the 3 awarded, and even in past awards....what are they doing that is environmental in any way? If it isn't going to be used as intended, then they shouldn't award it. Environmental Groups should be awarded this.


Maybe the sky will fall today, I agree with Joe King.
