?State Sen. Lewis responds to new state revenue forecast PDF Print E-mail

?? ?    According to the economic forecast presented recently to the State Budget Committee, Indiana’s revenue will be much lower for the current year than previously projected.
    The state’s revenue for the current fiscal year is now expected to be at least $720 million less than was forecast one year ago. The state is currently in the middle of fiscal year 2009, which runs from July 1, 2008, to June 30, 2009.
    Analysts expect little improvement in the state’s revenue forecast over the next two years, as well as a continued rise in the unemployment rate. The state may see unemployment levels reach as high as 8% in 2010 before the employment market improves, according to the recent forecast.
    “We must work together to follow through with our obligation to fully fund Indiana’s public schools,” said State Senator James Lewis.  “Although the revenue forecast is lower than expected, we must meet the needs of Hoosiers who rely on state services.”

?Recent accidents result in injuries, charges being filed against two individuals PDF Print E-mail

?    Recent vehicular accidents in Scott County have involved some injuries as well as some criminal charges being filed against people involved and an errant bed mattress.
    A most unusual accident, involving the mattress, occurred November 23 on U.S. Highway 31 South at Armory Drive in Scottsburg.
    Ervin E. Beswick, 70, Milton, Fl., was driving a 1995 Chevy S10 pickup on U.S. 31 when a mattress he was hauling in the bed of the truck flew out and landed on the highway.
    Marilyn J. Robbins, 37, Scottsburg stopped her 1995 Ford Thunderbird as did another vehicle, but a 2004 Hyndai operated by Jason T. Spicer, 22, Scottsburg, struck the T-bird as Robbins apparently attempted to go around the mattress but then braked.
    No one was hurt in the mishap, which caused approximately $10,000 in property damage. The accident was covered by Lt. Richey Barton with assistance from Patrolman Rodney Watts, both of the Scottsburg Police Department.
