Commissioners to purchase voting machines for county PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 10 March 2010 00:00
    At the recent Washington County Commissioners meeting held on March 3, the group made a decision to purchase 19  used voting machines for $131,420, from HARP Election Services, based out of Lexington, Ky.
    The current county voting machines will not be state certified after the 2010 election.
    The machines were orginally used in Hawaii and due to a legal battle in that state, HARP made the choice to take back the machines a re-sale at a discounted price.
    “This discounted price will not be available for long, I simply just came across it a few days ago,” said Washington County Clerk Shirley Batt. “I am trying to save money for the county, new machines could run up to $350,000.”
    According to Batt, the warranties that come with the used machines are equivilent to new machines and the first payment to HARP will not occur until January 2011.

    The Washington County Community Foundation will be accepting applications for the Jinny Scifres Scholarship. The scholarship is for any individual
    planning to attend a post-secondary accredited institution in the 2010-2011 school year and plans to pursue studies in the medical field. The scholarship payout this year is $800.00. The number and dollar amount of scholarships will be determined by the committee. Preference may be given to non-traditional nursing students who may be returning to school after starting a family or career, as did Jinny.
     After starting a family, Jinny made the tough decision to return to school and study nursing.  After graduation, she began her nursing career at Washington County Memorial Hospital as an Emergency Room Nurse. Jinny's love of nursing eventually lead her to several promotions and back to school once again. She eventually became the Director of Patient Care Services. Jinny died in the fall of 2000, after bravely battling bone cancer. Her family and many friends established this scholarship fund in her memory, to assist others who, like Jinny, return to school to study nursing after starting a family or career.    
    Applications may be picked up at the Washington County Community Foundation office in the Community Learning Center on or after March 17. Application deadline is 3:30 pm April 26. For more information, you may contact Judy Johnson or Lindsey Wade-Swift at 883-7334.
