    The Scottsburg Warriors continued their season with their second regular season game, and their second straight conference match up at home.  They welcomed the visiting Pekin Easter Musketeers.  Both teams fought until the final buzzer, but the boys’ from Scottsburg came out with the win 69-58 on Tuesday, December 1.
    Action began poorly for the Warriors as they opened the game with a missed lay-up. However, Eastern handed the ball right back in the next two possessions being called for two offensive fouls. Neither team scored for over two minutes until a Scottsburg three pointer broke the ice. The up and down game found the Warriors on a 9-3 run and gaining momentum. However, some hot shooting by the Musketeers kept them in the game as they trailed 15-10 at the end of the first.
    The second period opened with more hot shooting from Eastern. They opened on a 6-0 run to take their first lead of the ball game. However, the Warriors took it right back on the very next possession. The game continued back and forth until Scottsburg gave themselves a little breathing room, opening up a six point lead. However, after several turnovers, the Warriors let Eastern back into the game. Thanks to poor free throw shooting by the Musketeers however, the Warriors found themselves up at the half 24-22.

    The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) and the Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) released details on the proposed ferry service that would operate during the temporary closure of the US 421 bridge connecting Milton, Ky., and Madison.
    The free ferry service would take vehicles and pedestrians from the Milton boat ramp at Ferry St. to the former boat launching ramp at Ferry St. near the City of Madison campground. The estimated $5.6 million cost of ferry service is based on 7-day-a-week, 24-hour-a-day service, except when weather or river conditions make operations unsafe. “Two ferries would run most of the day, and one ferry would operate at night and on weekends,” said Kevin Hetrick, INDOT project manager. “If necessary, we could add a second ferry for big weekend events.” In addition to cars, the ferries could accommodate small trucks.

    Recertification of the Scottsburg Revolving Loan Fund (RLF) was one of the first items on the November 16  agenda of the Scottsburg City Council.
    With a full Council attending, officials voted to approve a resolution that recertified the steps taken on how such loan applications are judged and how loans are approved and closed by the City.
    According to figures supplied by Mayor Bill Graham, the City has loaned out over $300,000 to industries over the past several years. Funds for the RLF have been received by Scottsburg from the Economic Development Agency and USDA Rural Development. Currently, noted city attorney Kerry Thompson, the City has about $250,000 available to loan. “I received an application for some money today from an industry that wants to expand,” he related to the Council.
    The City has been fortunate with RLF money. “We've lost some over the past 20 years, but we've also been able to help several industries when they've needed the help,” commented Mayor Graham. In the past, money was loaned to the old Bowater plant and was also used to improve Armory Drive which benefited industries in south Scottsburg. The RLF was also tapped to build the Scott County Community Clearinghouse, a facility which has helped thousands of people over the past ten years.
