    Oh, what a ride.
    The New Washington High School cheerleaders have enjoyed an amazing ride the last two seasons with their 2008 season ending with the ultimate, magical moment- being named State Champions.
    The Mustang Cheerleaders set a goal, a lofty goal, one that had never been accomplished before for a team from New Washington. Their goal was to bring back a state championship title to the small town.
    The squad competed on November 8 in the Indiana Cheerleading Championships sponsored by the Indiana Association of School Principals. The competition is the only opportunity for a high school cheer squad to win a regional or state title and is equivalent to the basketball programs sectional, regional, etc.
    The squad’s hard work and dedication paid off as they now have the memories of being on a state championship squad.

   The officers of the Sellersburg Police Department are continuously attending training workshops and classes to enable them to learn the top of the line techniques for their job related skills. Sellersburg Chief Russ Whelan has never kept the fact that he likes his officers to attend the many different  training opportunities a secret.
   Therefore when the opportunity for the officers to be re-certified in CPR (Cardio Pulmonary Recusation) was available he welcomed the opportunity. Certain circumstances leading to the latest training sessions  made this re-certification a little more special.
   In early December the department received a call regarding an unconscious female. It is not uncommon for a police unit to be dispatched to an ambulance run.
   The first person to arrive at the scene was Sellersburg Police Chaplain and Reserve Gary Fenner. Moments later Officer Charles Stirsman also arrived on scene along with Officer Daniel Cotton.
   Fenner entered the home first to discover family members administering CPR to an unconscious female. Fenner and Stirsman jumped in to take over the life-saving initiative.
