    For more than 35 years, vegetable growers from Southern Indiana and Northern Kentucky have been coming to Starlight to learn more about modern production of fresh vegetables. Commercial vegetable producers, like any other farmer, face many production and marketing challenges in bringing the world’s highest quality products to the consumer’s kitchen table. Weeds, diseases, insects, and weather uncertainties can all add up to impact the complexity of producing a safe, nutritious, and economical food supply. It can certainly be a challenge for a vegetable grower to keep up-to-date regarding the latest varieties and tools available, along with the occasional regulatory change that they need to comply with.
    Growers (including home gardeners) wishing to spend a few hours learning about the latest information in the field of vegetable crop production are encouraged to attend the annual Starlight Vegetable Growers Meeting on Tuesday, February 23, 2010. This annual educational program will begin with registration from 5:45 to 6:15 p.m. There will be an opportunity for participants to visit with commercial exhibitors throughout the evening to keep in touch with the latest pest control options, vegetable varieties, tools, and marketing/packaging products.

     For the past three years ranked Orleans has played Borden and come up short. This had to be a concern for Orleans coach Tom Bradley. It didn’t seem to be a concern for his players.
    In the first quarter Borden came at Orleans ignoring their current ranking of 4th in single A ball. Brandon Beam and Dalton Wagoner drove to the middle against Orleans 6’6” Center, Cameron Carroll. In three minutes they had forced two fouls on him and he was on the bench.

    After losing seven of their first nine games to start the season, the Borden High School boys' basketball team seems to be hitting its stride sweeping a Friday-Saturday doubleheader over Christian Academy (CA) and Henryville.
    The Braves won handily, 45-31,  in Friday night's showdown against the visiting Warriors, and then won a one-point thriller Saturday at Henryville.
    Saturday's win over Henryville puts the Braves in a position to salvage the season.
While the team's overall record is just 4-7, they are sitting with a 3-1 record in the Southern Athletic Conference.
    New Washington, with a mark of 2-0, is in first place, but Borden and Head Coach Doc Nash are set to square off against the Mustangs Feb. 16.

    The Eastern High School Athletic Booster Club is also hosting a silent auction. The top item is a Lebron James autographed basketball as well as other signed balls.
