?Big fourth quarter by Salem Lions buries SHS Warriors PDF Print E-mail
Written by Administrator   
Wednesday, 21 January 2009 00:00
?    There had been much hype in Southern Indiana about the battle for the Mid-Southern Conference title.
    Most people picked either Silver Creek or Salem to take the crown, but Scottsburg was undefeated in MSC play and Salem had one loss going into their Friday, January 16, game.  The Warriors had been a little bit of a sleeper, and if they could protect their home court, they would be in good position with only games against Clarksville and Silver Creek remaining.
    Gunner Erwin and the Lions had other ideas for the Warriors however. They played tough in Meyer Gym, taking a 24-22 lead into halftime.
    The third quarter went Salem’s way, the score being 39-31 when the buzzer sounded.
    Most fans that follow Scottsburg basketball know that the Warriors have been a fourth quarter team this season, but again, the Lions had different ideas. Erwin led the Lions, outscoring Scottsburg 25-9 in the fourth to take a 64-40 win on the road and giving the Warriors their first conference loss.
    Matt Bridgewater and Mason Gregory led the team scoring with 12, and Erwin led Salem with 16.
    Scottsburg in theory would have had to win against Salem to have a share of the title, but the Brownstown Braves lent a helping hand, knocking off Silver Creek to give all teams atop the MSC standings one loss and taking that contest back to square one again.

?Mom charged with failing to see that child attends school PDF Print E-mail
Written by Marty Randall

?    A Scottsburg mother has been charged with violating the Indiana Compulsory School Attendance Law.
    Pauline L. Pappas, 37, will face trial on the charge on April 6, according to court records.
    Pappas’ child had missed 29 days of school up to November 20, the probable cause affidavit stated.
    Scott School District 2 officials had sent several letters to Pappas about her child missing school. She attended a meeting of the Scott County Attendance Review Board in October in regard to the absences, and board members had worked out an “action plan” for the mother and her child to follow to ensure that the student would be in school on a regular basis.
    The affidavit stated that Pappas failed to follow this plan, and the child continued to miss school.
    An Indiana State Trooper, Ray Dawson, visited the Pappas home twice in late November. He stated in the affidavit that the woman failed to provide him with any medical records that would support the child having a reason to miss school.
    The charge is a Class B misdemeanor.
