Floyd Central and New Albany High School theatre departments are once again teaming up to present the theatrical event of the fall season.   “A Christmas Carol, the Musical!,”  was a sellout smash hit when Floyd Central presented the show several years ago and directors Chris Bundy, from F.C.H.S. and David Longest, from N.A.H.S., both in their final year before retirement, have decided the show is the perfect selection for their students and the community to enjoy as the beginning of the 2011 holiday season.

A Clark County Sheriff’s Deputy has been a positive influence for the small, close knit community of Henryville for the past six years. He has implemented a program for fifth graders that teach them about making the right choices and the consequences of making bad decisions. The hundreds of students he has taught over the years have taken the lesson in the classroom and turned it into a life lesson. The impact he has made on the students has not gone unnoticed.

One Sunday this past March, Pastor Mike Donahue of Speed Memorial Church approached a member of his congregation, Betty Johnson. He told her of his desire to start a program to send care packages to deployed troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. He asked her if she would “head this program” and she said “yes.” She was chosen because she had been sending many boxes to her grandson, Sam, a Marine, who had been deployed five times.
