    Rock Creek came to Borden having both lost season-opening games and both were in search of a victory Saturday (Nov. 28). Rock Creek ended up being the team that left Borden with a 71-62 win.
    Borden came in the first quarter pushing the pace up trying to minimize the impact of Rock Creeks size. Rock Creek had the inside size with  6’6’ Dontale Mayes and 6’4” Joe Pearson who were both tall and big. Borden managed to neutralize Rock Creek’s size with quickness and keeping the ball out of the middle.      
    Dalton Wagoner and Jacob Rich put up nine points inside using their quickness. Rock Creek’s answer came from Ethan Hawn working from a guard position putting up eight points. Rock Creek lead the first quarter 15 - 13.
    In the second quarter Rock Creek switched defenses to a full court press and a zone. The press had little effect but the zone slowed the game down. It minimized Borden’s slashing drives and slowed the ball movement down. Jon Ashby scored Rock Creek’s only 3-point shot of the game while the scoring was spread among five players for the quarter.

    Forty-two local charitable organizations got good news Monday, November 30 when they received grants from the Community Foundation of Southern Indiana. The organizations, which serve residents of Clark, Floyd and Harrison counties, were recognized at the Community Foundation’s annual grant event at Kye’s in Jeffersonville.
    A total of $108,000 was awarded to 42 Southern Indiana organizations, said CFSI program officer Melissa Weissinger. The funding came from the Community Foundation’s Community Endowment Fund. A total of $285,711 was requested through 63 grant applications. “Last year, we increased the maximum amount available through individual grants from $2,500 to $5,000, and that generated more applications,” Weissinger said. “We saw a comparable amount of applications again this year. Clearly, the economy continues to impact the community. More people need help, and these organizations do important work that directly deals with these challenges. We are gratified that we can make a contribution.”
    Grant proposals were considered by a committee of 22 dedicated volunteers, who spent many hours making initial evaluations and then following up with applicants, including site visits, phone interviews and other work meant to ensure the committee had all of the details necessary to decide which grants to fund. The volunteers evaluated each application based on how many people will be affected by the funding, along with other criteria.

    Coming off a three game losing streak, and finding themselves at the bottom of the MSC race, the Scottsburg Warriorettes looked to right the ship against the visiting New Washington Lady Mustangs.  Scottsburg got back on the right foot as they played a solid game to defeat New Washington by a score of 67-59, on Saturday, November 28.
The nights action opened up in Scottsburg’s favor, as they jumped out to a quick 8-2 lead over New Washington.  The Lady Mustangs seemed to have no answer for the Warriorettes’ post presence as they were dominated on the offensive boards, giving Scottsburg several second chance points.  Nearing the end of the quarter the Warriorettes had opened up a nine point lead and looked to be in control of the entire game.  However, the Lady Mustangs fought to keep it close as they cut the lead to only five at the end of the quarter 17-12.

As holidays approach, don’t forget to check out Cat Adoption facility PDF Print E-mail

    It’s that time of the year again, when everyone is thinking about the holidays and are beginning to get into that mood to give to friends, family and others in need.
    One area people may not be aware of that usually gets overlooked is the felines of Scott County.
Scott County has a new Cat Adoption Facility located at 1202 South Taylor Mill Road in Scottsburg, just off of State Road 56 and off South Boatman Road.
    Cats and kittens may be the special gift for your family.
    Cats that are adopted through the facility can be done so at $45 which includes the spay/neuter, rabies, vaccinations, worming, feline leukemia/fiv combination testing and flea treatment. All the cats/kittens at the center are well socialized. These cats are adopted to be inside only cats and may be taken home the day of adoption.
    Coming to the facility with the cats/kittens gives a wonderful opportunity to learn the individual personalities of the cats and help determine which will fit best in the adopter’s home.
    The cats/kittens come directly from the animal shelter. None are accepted at this location. The Scott County Humane’s Society’s mission is to aid the Scott County Animal Sehtler and this facility acts as housing for many very nice cats that have run out of time at the Scott County Animal Shelter. The pets at this adoption center are hand-selected from the many homeless cats that are trapped or turned in. The facility is only able to accommodate a limited number of cats so as one is adopted form this location, they are able to select another to take its place.
Christmas is around the corner and donations of dry cat food, litter, cleaning supplies and cat toys are always needed. Tax deductible financial donations are also badly needed to help purchase vaccine and health supplies for the cats. Medical supplies are very expensive and absolutely necessary to keep the pets healthy until they find their new homes. Volunteers are always needed to keep the many phases of the humane society operating.
    Hours of operation are from 4 to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 1 to 3 p.m. on Saturday.
    For more information please call 752-7500 and leave message. For more information visit the website at www.hsscottcountyin.com
