DIG offers unique gardening opportunity to Daleville area
Play is not always about sports and games; it might also be gardening for some.  The Daleville Recreation Department has a solution for anyone wanting to grow their own food, food for others, or maybe even use growing food or flowers as a teaching tool for students in public, private, or home schools.

The Daleville City Council voted Tuesday night to terminate its long-held contract with Juvenile Correction Services (JCS).
