Monday, 22 December 2008 00:00
??    The Lanesville Board of School Trustees renewed the coverage of school personnel with Anthem, continuing the coverage they already have. The renewal was for one more year.
    “There was a 3 percent increase in the premium,” said Supt. Sam Gardner, who said that the price of the insurance premiums is based on a number of factors, such as “the loss ratios; what your claim history is.”
    After 41 years of service to the Lanesville Community Schools, thirrd grade teacher Michelle England was feted at a retirement reception last Friday morning (as part of the school’s Christmas program) by the school. She taught her entire career at Lanesville.
    Nathan Barnickle has been hired as England’s appointment for the third grade. He grew up in Lanesville, and attended the Lanesville Community Schools.

??    The Harrison County Convention & Visitors Bureau hired Purdue University’s Tourism & Hospitality Research Center in 2006, to conduct a ROI (Return on Investment) Study of the visitor services provided by the HCCVB at the Blaine H. Wiseman Visitor Center and the I-64 Welcome Center, to be concluded in 2008. The purpose for this study is to obtain an accurate understanding of Harrison County visitors’ information use pattern at its two centers, assess the viability of the services provided by the two centers and their impact on visitors.
    Survey intercepts were done at both locations over a period of one year as a way to get initial contact information from visitors. A follow-up survey was sent to those who agreed to participate in a more in-depth study.  The questionnaire developed was based on previous research approaches used in the tourism field. In addition to service and information evaluations, the impact of information on visitor behavior and satisfaction were questioned, including visitor experience in Harrison County, services they would like to see from the two centers, and social demographic factors.

?Kentuckiana kids sweep Midwest Junior Dragster Super Series PDF Print E-mail
Written by Administrator   
Monday, 22 December 2008 00:00
?    Many children in the region drag race and drive junior dragsters. Junior dragsters are race cars that are half scale versions of Top Fuel dragsters. Using a five-horsepower, single cylinder engine, a Junior Dragster can go as fast as 85 mph and as quick as 7.90 seconds in an eighth mile.
    These dragsters and their drivers are the future of NHRA drag racing. They compete with a handicapped starting system and classes are usually divided up into age groups. Both boys, as well as girls, compete in the junior drag racing league. The competition develops their skills and confidence, while preparing them to drive and race as adults in the NHRA programs. At the same time, it provides a hobby and a fun family activity for the participants and their families.
    The local track here in Kentuckiana is Ohio Valley Dragway, located in West Point, Kentucky. On a weekly basis, an average of 24 children participate and compete at Ohio Valley Dragway to earn points toward their track championships.
