Our prayers are with the family of State Auditor Tom Schweich who was deceased today.
The Joint Newton-Jasper County Lincoln Day Chairman, Jerry Carter, the Jasper County Republican Chairman, Jimmy Morris, and the Newton County Republican Chairman, Nick Myers, agree that the event will take place this Saturday, February 28th, beginning at 6pm at the Butcher's Block Banquet Center.
