Former Sheriff to speak at Senior Center

Monday, February 9, 2009

Former Clay County Sheriff Rob Carter Jr., who currently serves as the director of the Indiana Department of Natural Resources, will speak at the Clay County Senior Center, 120 S. Franklin St., Brazil, Monday, Feb. 16, at 7 p.m.

The event is being sponsored by the Clay County Republican Club. The public is invited to attend.

Carter was twice elected as Sheriff of Clay County before being appointed by Gov. Mitch Daniels to serve as head of the law enforcement division of the DNR. In December 2006, Carter was selected to serve in his current position with the DNR.

Carter will be in Brazil to share information about current events in the DNR and about his role within the department. The DNR is the agency charged with maintaining natural areas such as state parks, state forests, recreation areas and more. According to the department's website, its mission is "to protect, enhance, preserve and wisely use natural, cultural and recreational resources for the benefit of Indiana's citizens through professional leadership, management and education."

Carter also recently served as a part of Daniels' "Capital Steps Challenge" team, which competed against 10 other governors and their colleagues in a contest that tracks physical activity. The challenge ran from Jan. 1-14, with participants keeping track of the number of steps they took each day. The winning team will be announced at the National Governors Association meeting in Washington, D.C., on Feb. 21. The state with the winning team will be awarded $50,000 to fight childhood obesity.
