??    The Lanesville Board of School Trustees renewed the coverage of school personnel with Anthem, continuing the coverage they already have. The renewal was for one more year.
    “There was a 3 percent increase in the premium,” said Supt. Sam Gardner, who said that the price of the insurance premiums is based on a number of factors, such as “the loss ratios; what your claim history is.”
    After 41 years of service to the Lanesville Community Schools, thirrd grade teacher Michelle England was feted at a retirement reception last Friday morning (as part of the school’s Christmas program) by the school. She taught her entire career at Lanesville.
    Nathan Barnickle has been hired as England’s appointment for the third grade. He grew up in Lanesville, and attended the Lanesville Community Schools.

??    The Harrison County Convention & Visitors Bureau hired Purdue University’s Tourism & Hospitality Research Center in 2006, to conduct a ROI (Return on Investment) Study of the visitor services provided by the HCCVB at the Blaine H. Wiseman Visitor Center and the I-64 Welcome Center, to be concluded in 2008. The purpose for this study is to obtain an accurate understanding of Harrison County visitors’ information use pattern at its two centers, assess the viability of the services provided by the two centers and their impact on visitors.
    Survey intercepts were done at both locations over a period of one year as a way to get initial contact information from visitors. A follow-up survey was sent to those who agreed to participate in a more in-depth study.  The questionnaire developed was based on previous research approaches used in the tourism field. In addition to service and information evaluations, the impact of information on visitor behavior and satisfaction were questioned, including visitor experience in Harrison County, services they would like to see from the two centers, and social demographic factors.
