?Warriors end win drought in series against Brownstown PDF Print E-mail

???    It had been eight years since the Scottsburg Warriors beat the Brownstown Braves.
    Despite having the game at home this season, the Braves were still favorites to come away victorious.  Critics expected the one two punch of Blaze Ayers and Taylor Wischmeier to dominate on the boards, as well as in the paint.
    They did out-rebound the Warriors 31 to 28, but the advantage on the boards was no match for the heart and hustle of Scottsburg on Friday, December 12.
    The game was tight from start to finish, neither team leading by more than 7 points. At halftime, the score was 27-25 in favor of the Braves, but Scottsburg came out with increased intensity to combat the home team’s size and athletic advantage.
    As Brownstown extended to a two-possession game, the Warriors made a run to keep it close. With three minutes left in the fourth quarter, Ayers flushed a breakaway dunk to go ahead 6 points and silence the crowd in the Pressure Cooker.
    At the moment that things seemed bleakest, the Warriors turned their game up a notch.  They went on a 7-0 run to take the lead and did not look back from there.
    Scottsburg held the lead in a game that came down to fundamentals and ball movement, winning by a score of 56-52. Matt Bridgewater led the Warriors in scoring again with 16, several of which came on offensive rebounds. Wischmeier had a good night with 20, but Ayers only had 9.

?Commissioners encumber funds for horse arena improvements PDF Print E-mail
Monday, 22 December 2008 00:00
?    The Washington County Board of Commissioners met in regular session for the last time in 2008 on Wednesday, December 17.  All members were present, unanimously approving minutes of previous meetings, all claims, and payroll.
    Stating that the fairgrounds horse arena generates more revenue for the county than most people realize, Commissioner Byron Green, along with Commissioners Mike Goering and Lana Sullivan agreed to encumber $11,448 from the 2008 Fairgrounds Fund to be used in 2009 for the construction of a new building at the arena.
    According to advocates for the project, the estimated cost for the new building will be in excess of the encumbered amount.  However, both the Commissioners and the project proponents agreed that the final decision should be made by the new Board of Commissioners taking office in 2009.
