?    The crisp morning air is a sure sign of Fall. Local citizens are gearing for the trees to change to their beautiful reds, golds and oranges, another true sign that Fall is here.
    Local stores and family produce markets have bright orange pumpkins in all shapes and sizes ready to become your jack-o-lantern to welcome trick-or-treaters to your door this Halloween.
    Some citizens have even started decorating for the season with mums in their beautiful yellows and  reds and lavenders with bales of hay and scarecrows and witches.
    Another true sign of the Fall is the annual Autumn on the River Festival in historic Bethlehem. The festival, in its 16th year, was threatened three years ago. The volunteers organizing the event were becoming small in numbers and the festival was becoming too much.
    Co-Chairs of the festival, Andi Oles and David Abbott, have taken reigns of the festival and seen record numbers in the past two years in attendance and vendors.
    “We have really enjoyed helping with this festival. I am always ready for the festival weekend. It’s nice to see everyone bring their family and spend a day in Bethlehem and truly enjoy themselves,” Abbott stated.

?North Harrison girls’ golf team completes best season ever; senior Allison Dooley competes at state meet PDF Print E-mail
Written by Administrator

    North Harrison senior Allison Dooley failed to make the cut into Saturday in the annual IHSAA State Meet for girls’ golf at the Legends of Indiana Golf Course in Franklin, Indiana.
    On Friday, Dooley carded a score of 84, missing the cut. Floyd Central’s Kristen Reed, also competing as an individual, also missed the cut. She carded a score of 89.
    Despite missing the Saturday round of the State Meet, Dooley got back to the State Meet, like she did as a freshman in 2005.
    As she explained, that was a personal goal of her own. More importantly, the team had few goals of their own, which they managed to pretty much achieve.
