    The new boilers to be installed at Morgan Elementary School during the upcoming renovation and construction project will be propane fired boilers, the North Harrison board of School Trustees decided recently at a special board meeting.
    The installation cost of the boilers is estimated at $1.9 million dollars, as opposed to the estimated cost of $1.79 million for electric boilers.
    The main difference in the costs involved will be in the yearly fuel consumption, and the cost of each type of fuel by the therm (a therm is a measurement of energy equal to 100,000 BTUs).
    The cost of propane per therm is $1.58, based on a cost of $1.45 per gallon of propane.
    With electric boilers, the cost per therm is $2.30, with the basis being a price of $0.0784 per kilowatt hour.
    The propane boilers would have an output of 26,710 therms per year, with 23,964 therms per year coming from electric boilers.
    The total energy cost on a yearly basis for the propane boilers would be $42,202 as opposed to $55,117 for electric.
    The propane boilers would have a service life of 25 years, as opposed to 15 years for the electric option.

    Based on the rankings of six community indicators from the 2004 Uniform Crime Reports, the State of Indiana Epidemiological Outcomes Workgroup identified Floyd County as ranking in the top ten of the communities identified as “high need” for alcohol-related prevention funding.  
    The indicators included: 1) number of alcohol-related fatal auto accidents; 2) the rate of alcohol-related fatal auto accidents; 3) number of alcohol-related crashes; 4) rate of alcohol-related crashes; 5) number of arrests for public intoxication; and 6) rate of public intoxication arrests.     
    For each of the six indicators, counties were given four points if they were in the top 10th percentile, three points if they were in the top 15th percentile, two points if they were in the top 25th percentile and one point if they were in the top 50th  percentile. The total points were then summed to total an overall alcohol priority score.
