    A budget hearing for the Transportation Fund, General Fund, and Debt Service Fund took place Tuesday (August 18) in the regular monthly meeting of the Lanesville Board of School Trustees.
    Because of the way the process works, the hearing was for 2010.
    “We didn’t ask for any big increases,” said interim Lanesville Supt. Sam Gardner, who said that the tax rates in the district could actually go down next year. “You never know what could happen a year from now.”
    Another unknown is what the school district’s total assessed evaluation will be the next time around.
    In an unrelated matter, the board and Supt. Gardner discussed the flood damage to the baseball diamond and the track in the recent flooding.
    The total amount of damage to both facilities is estimated to be $5,000, and Gardner said that the track was completely covered by the flood waters. Little Indian Creek runs through the town of Lanesville, parallel to the north side of SR 62, with the baseball diamond and the track on the north side of Little Indian Creek. The baseball field also received water damage to the outfield in the recent flood.

    The Floyd County Youth Symphony (FCYS) is open to any qualified student in Southern Indiana or the Louisville metropolitan area. Organized in 1974, the orchestra’s mission is to offer outstanding young musicians the opportunity to experience a challenging music environment. Continuing this tradition, members of the FCYS are planning to perform at Walt Disney World, Florida, during Disney’s 25th Anniversary Magic Music Days, March 21-24, 2010.
    This season’s auditions will be held at New Albany High School on September 14. Students should come prepared to play a scale that represents their range and a short excerpt from a solo or ensemble work that demonstrates their development as a player.
    The FCYS is divided into two orchestras for students at differing levels of technical and musical development. The Philharmonic is a full orchestra for students who have achieved an advanced level of proficiency. Philharmonic String auditions will be from 5 to 8 p.m., Monday, September 14, beginning with Violins from 5 to 6 p.m. Violas, Cellos and Basses will audition from 6 to 7 p.m. Philharmonic wind and percussion players will audition 6 to 8:30 p.m. Monday, October 26. There is a $25 audition fee and Pre-registration is not required. Philharmonic rehearsals are on Mondays from 6-8:30 p.m. and are under the leadership of directors Doug Elmore, Scott Cooksey, & Peter Hogoboam.
The Mini-Orchestra is open to string players through 8th grade. Auditions will be heard between 3  and 5 p.m. Monday, September 14. There is no pre-registration or audition fee required. The Mini-Orchestra is an ensemble for young, developing string players. Kathryn Burger Johnson and Susan Pfeifer direct the Mini Orchestra and rehearsals are 4 to 5 p.m. on Mondays.
    The FCYS is unique in that the State of Indiana offers high school credit for participation. FCYS members must take private lessons and participate in their school orchestras, if one is available. Rehearsals for both groups will be at New Albany High School from September through December, 2009. Rehearsals from January to May, 2010 will be held at Highland Hills Middle School.

    You need to remember where you came from, as well as being aware you’re headed to as you go through life, according to Indiana Farm Bureau 2nd Vice President Isabella Chism.
    Chism lives in Galveston (near Gas City in north central Indiana) with her husband Kent, and has three adult children. They raise corn and soybeans on their farm.
    Chism said that it takes three things to live the good life: persistence, patience, and pride in what you do.
    She asked the audience, “How many of you are activists?”
    Several people raised their hands, and she said, “Every one of you are activists. It means you’re out doing something.”
    Chism was born in Austria, and immigrated over to the United States with her parents when she was six years old. Her father had been a school teacher in Austria before they came over to the US.
    She said that whatever she has done in life or whatever has happened to her in life throughout the years, she truly believes that “every one of us has the seed to be what we are to be.”
