?Salem eats time off clock; outlasts Charlestown 18-13 in Lions’ Homecoming PDF Print E-mail

    The Salem Lions (5-2, 4-1 MSC) used extended possession time to keep the Charlestown Pirates (5-2, 4-1 MSC) away from the football in an 18-13 Mid Southern Conference battle Friday night in Salem.
    The game was hardly decided early, either. A long 10-minute 20 play drive by the Lions in the waning minutes ate up enough clock for them to keep the Pirates from winning. Salem had two fourth down conversions while Charlestown had none. That factor and turnovers by the Pirates sealed Charlestown’s fate.

?Commissioners hear concerns from disabled veterans PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 08 October 2008 00:00
    The Washington County Board of Commissioners met in regular session on Wednesday, October 1 with all
members present.  The minutes of previous meetings, all claims, and payroll requests were approved unanimously.
    In a sometimes heated exchange, the Commissioners heard concerns from disabled veterans and drivers for the
veterans service over the federally mandated requirement for the county to provide IRS Form 1099 to any individual
who is paid in excess or $600 per year for services or expenses.  Misinformation and a general lack of understanding
regarding IRS guidelines for offsetting payments reported on the Form 1099 and how that procedure would impact
Social Security and disability payments for drivers was at the heart of the veterans’ and drivers’ concerns.  After
several futile attempts by different Commissioners and Mike Whelihan, Indiana State Adjutant for the Disabled
American Veterans (DAV), to explain that the Form 1099 along with accompanying expense records would not
impact the drivers’ eligibility to receive those entitlements, County Attorney, Thomas Scifres, explained the federal
law and the manner in which the drivers could record and submit their expenses to the IRS in a clear and calming
manner that seemed to soothe  much of the angst exhibited by the veterans and the drivers.
