NH Board hears of interest free loan Federal Stimulus Funds PDF Print E-mail
Written by Administrator   
Wednesday, 19 August 2009 00:00
    North Harrison interim Supt. Randy Barrett informed the Board of School Trustees Thursday night that with Federal Stimulus Funds, an interest free loan could be possible, if the administration applies for the funds. The funds for this type of loan are controlled by the states, and the Indiana Dept. of Education would be the organization giving the loan out.
    Barrett stressed the interest free aspect of the loan to the members of the North Harrison Board of School Trustees.
    “This bond is unique, in that there is no interest (charged),” said Barrett.
    The payback time would be 15 to 16 years, and only the amount of the original loan would need to be paid back, according to Barrett.
    In another matter regarding finances, Barrett cautioned that the North Harrison Community School Corporation lost $107 million in assessed evaluation. The amount of money raised by the school corporation in tax levies will actually be higher, due to the tax rates being higher.

All-R-Stars Camp at Highland Hills has been big success PDF Print E-mail

    The All-R-Stars Tennis Camp at Highland Hills Middle School near Galena has been a success by all accounts. Brandon Miller, 34, who played boys’ tennis at Floyd Central High School for his father, longtime boys’ and girls’ varsity tennis coach Rick Miller, has been holding the camp at the school’s tennis courts since the first week of June. The camp was to have run through today (Wednesday, August 12), and quite a few kids have spent at least a few days at the camp. The participants (middle school and high school age) plunked down $10 per day for instruction in the camp.
    Miller almost lived at the school during the nine or so weeks of the camp, but that is fine with him.
    “This makes me feel like a kid; to be associated with these kids’ day in and day out,” he said during a lull in the action Monday, shortly after noon.
    Miller said that over the course of the camp, he gets a few new participants every week.
    The camp is not open only to students that attend Highland Hills or Floyd Central, but to everyone in the community. As an example, Miller said he has one girl who attends the Louisville Latin School.
     Once the camp is over fro the year on August 12, Junior Team Tennis starts up, and is sanctioned by the United States Tennis Association (USTA). This will be at Floyd Central High School’s courts, since they have 10 courts to the 10 at Highland Hills Middle School. This is held on Thursdays from 7:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., and on Sundays from 6:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. this is ongoing throughout the fall, until it gets cold. This is to get participant’s feet moving, and eye-hand coordination improving. Eight game pro sets will be employed, and will have singles, doubles, and mixed doubles.

St Marys of Lanesville has successful picnic PDF Print E-mail
Written by Administrator

    Since the first ever church picnic was held at St. Mary’s Church in Lanesville, hospitality has been the main ingredient in the whole affair.
    Over 4,000 dinner tickets were sold Sunday at the 75th picnic on the hill overlooking Lanesville, about 20 miles west of Louisville on State Road 62.
    The picnic was held for 20 consecutive years, between 1924 and 1943. The picnic was discontinued because of World War II, but was continued again in 1955, and has been going strong ever since then.
    When the 1st picnic was held in 1924, Father Adam Baron told the parishioners of St. Mary’s at the time that “while neighboring pastors ran their picnics, he was not going to run St. Mary’s,” according to records from the church.
    Rev. Baron insisted that the success of the picnic depended on overall parish involvement, and did not want the picnic to become the main source of revenue for the parish.
    The net amount of money made in 1924 was $1,600, and the picnic has continually grown in size over the years.
    Homemade quilts are one of the main draws to the picnic, and normally when the quilts are all gone, the crowd largely is gone as well.
    The picnic is still a parish wide event, whether the parishioner is young, middle age, or elderly.
    Over 700 parishioners work together to make the event a success, and here are a few other impressive statistics: 1-Over 3,800 lbs. of chicken will be cooked and eaten every year, 2-It takes 450 loaves of bread for their special recipe dressing, 3-600 lbs. of cabbage has been prepared, 4-800 meals per hour are served between the hours of 11 a.m. and 2 p.m., and 5-the ladies doing the quilts spend nearly 2500 man hours on their handiwork.
