    Latin America Discipleship & Outreach (LADO) is celebrating its first annual benefit and silent auction on Saturday, April 25 at the Navilleton Activity Center in Floyds Knobs, Indiana. LADO is a nonprofit organization focusing its efforts on reaching out to displaced children and families in Colombia, South America. Edgar and Julie (Kiesler) Zuluaga, missionaries supported by LADO, have been working in Villa Katy, Colombia for three years. Because of violence and political turmoil, these families were forced to leave their homes, everything they owned, and flee to safety.  LADO’s dream is to restore them, bringing a message of hope, love, and a future.
    LADO wishes to educate and equip these adults with tools to help them sustain their families and provide them a better way of life. They want to buy a farm and build a multi-purpose ministry center in order to provide jobs, as well as skills training. Please join LADO for an awesome evening of fellowship and encouragement.
    Dinner tickets are on sale for $15.00/adults, $7.50/children 6-12, and 5/under are free. Doors open at 5 p.m. for the beginning of the silent auction and dinner will be served at 6:30 p.m. To purchase tickets, please call (502) 713-6005.

Season ends as Warriors fall short in sectional PDF Print E-mail

    Scottsburg was riding a wave of momentum as they had defeated Madison 76-60 in a convincing fashion the previous night.
    They hoped that wave would carry them past a Greensburg team that knocked off heavily favored Batesville on Friday night, March 6, as well.  The Pirates won their game by outhustling and outsmarting the Bulldogs in every way.  The Warriors on the other hand, won their game by shooting the lights out, and scoring at will.  Scottsburg planned to use that same game-plan in the sectional final against Greensburg.
    As expected, the Pirates came out in a hustling fashion, dominating the Warriors in every category.  Scottsburg went away from the deadly three point shooting that carried them past the Cubs, and didn’t lock down the interior defense either, and allowed Greensburg to pull away.  
    The Pirates would lead by as much as 20 at one point, and would hold a sizeable lead until the fourth quarter, when the Warriors would get no closer than eight points, losing 64-53.  
    The title game was Scottsburg first appearance in a sectional final since 2005, and will likely be a favorite in conference next season as they lose only Tyler Patton to graduation.
