Six local Boys Scouts were inducted as Eagle Scouts at Northside Christian Church recently (Sunday, January 16) with a pinning ceremony of their medals.
Becoming an Eagle Scout is not an easy task. Only approximately 2 percent of beginning Cub Scouts ever become Eagle Scouts, the highest ranking in scouting. The Eagle Scout designation is for life.
The six Eagle Scouts inducted were: Thomas Cullen, Joshua Harris, Taylor Lessig, Houston Mills III, Cory Owen Neel, and Levi Speth.
Thomas Cullen has been a member of Troop 4734 at Northside Christian Church since 2001, and became a Boy Scout in 2004.

Floyd starts off with 14-0 lead over NH; hangs on for 48-33 victory
It’s a good thing that the Floyd Central Highlanders got off to a 14-0 start in their home contest with the North Harrison Cougars Saturday night, because the Cougars outscored them only 34-33 the rest of the way.
The opening onslaught took place over the first seven minutes of the game, and it forced North Harrison into two time outs by the 1:01 mark in the 1st quarter.

2011 STATE OF THE STATE ADDRESS
JANUARY 11, 2011
Mr. Speaker, members of the Assembly, Hoosier friends and neighbors, thank you yet again for the privilege of this platform.  
For most of us, one of the strongest memories of our youth is that great school teacher, that magical man or woman who somehow reached us, and stretched us, and in the process left indelible recollections. For me, one of those was Bob Watson—still, today, Mr. Watson to me—who introduced us to the mysteries of the periodic table in high school chemistry.  In addition to mixing potions that suddenly turned purple, and terrifying pop quizzes, Mr. Watson was famous for his aphorisms, little sayings so often repeated that his students still smile and recite them to each other decades later. And the most frequently applied of all Watson’s wisdoms was: “Good things come to those who wait. Patience is the essence of life.”
