The US Naval Sea Cadet Corps is establishing a new unit in Southeastern Indiana for youth ages 10-17.

The U.S. Naval Sea Cadet Corps is a non-profit youth program composed of more than 380 units in 48 states, Guam and Puerto Rico, said Michelle Novinger, commanding officer, Batesville Squadron.

“We provide compelling, life-changing programs that instill the values of teamwork, discipline, camaraderie and service through our passionate all-volunteer force and our partnerships with our nation’s armed forces,” said Novinger.

The USNSCC is for youth interested in developing their skills in leadership, basic seamanship, courage, self-reliance and discipline.

“Our cadets are also committed to being drug-, alcohol- and gang-free,” said Novinger.
Cadets drill one weekend monthly, and attend summer and winter training that typically last 10 to 14 days. Boot camp is included for new recruits. Cadets master marching, color guards, close order drills, physical readiness, and leadership.

Advanced training includes Navy shore field operations, petty officer leadership, STEM (science technology, engineering and math), sea perch, basic airman aviation, food service culinary arts, scuba diving, public safety: master-at-arms, and marksmanship.

Cadets can attend training at various locations throughout the United States.

Great Parks of Hamilton County is stocking 500 pounds of yellow perch throughout October at the Campbell Lakes Preserve in Harrison.

The perch will be added Friday, Oct. 3, 10 and 17. With cooler fall temps, yellow perch are more accessible to anglers because they  move into shallower water to feed.

Campbell Lakes Preserve has four lakes. You can fish by car-top boats, such as canoes, kayaks and johnboats, or from the bank. The preserve is off Campbell Road, near the Kilby Road intersection.

A valid Great Parks of Hamilton County Motor Vehicle Permit ($10 annual; $3 daily) is required to enter the park.

For more information, visit greatparks.org or call 521-7275.
