    Big Brothers Big Sisters has been a part of Washington County for almost 13 years. Since that time, community volunteers have been paired with children and youth in one-to-one mentoring relationships.
    Organizers for this year’s Bowl for Kids Sake event are: JoLynn Allen, Laura Bishop, Denise Newkirk, Emily Siler, Stephanie Ferriell and Joy Bierly.

?North Harrison board proceeding with Morgan Elementary renovation PDF Print E-mail
Written by Administrator   
Wednesday, 14 January 2009 00:00
??    The North Harrison Board of School Trustees learned Thursday night that the construction and renovation project at Morgan Elementary School in Central Barren is proceeding smoothly. The Department of Local Government Finance in Indianapolis recently approved the project, which is the final legal hurdle to moving ahead with the project.
    Architect Hal Kovert of Kovert-Hawkins of Jeffersonville, Indiana, presented the board and new interim Supt. Dr. Fihe with the latest developments in the Morgan project.
    A topographical survey of the building site at Morgan was completed, and it has been determined that the soil will support a building foundation with a normal load bearing footing.
    An architectural survey of the existing buildings at Morgan will be done, in great detail, to give contractors information on all existing structures, down to the smallest detail.
    The board also learned that asbestos will need to be removed from the middle building, which will be demolished after all asbestos is removed. The new wing will be constructed on the east side of the 1975 section before any asbestos removal or demolition.
