    The Washington County Memorial Hospital got good news Monday afternoon as St. Vincent's officially won a bid to claim possession of the hospital.
    Last Friday Scheck out of Seymour placed a bid on WCMH, which forced the two sides into an auction ceremony in U.S. Bankruptcy court Monday morning in New Albany and St. Vincent won.
    Plans are being made for a Tuesday morning press conference to announce what that means for local employees and patients.

    A good effort by the Borden Braves wasn't enough to overtake visiting Paoli Saturday night (Dec. 2).
    Borden turned in one of their better performances of the season, but the Rams used their strength and experience to obtain the 54-41 victory.
    The Braves started the game by using their height advantage to take a slim lead on the battle of the boards.
    Both teams handled the ball fairly well with each having only three turnovers through the half.
    Borden played an effective zone defense most of the half. Paoli did have success shooting over the zone.
    What eventually gave Paoli a three-point half-time lead was their shot selection and good shooting percentage.
    Borden out rebounded Paoli eleven to three on Paoli’s end of the court. This helped minimize Paoli’s second shot opportunities but they shot well enough they didn’t need them to hold the lead at half 29-26.

Lilly Scholarship Recipient Returns Home to Work PDF Print E-mail

    When local students are awarded scholarships, it is always hoped that the students will successfully complete college and maybe even return to work back home in their community. In any event, Indiana’s so-called ‘brain drain’ deeply concerned state leaders in the late 1990s after statistics showed many graduates were leaving the state.
    Lilly Endowment Inc. established their Lilly Endowment Community Scholarship Program in 1998, after concern that Indiana ranked near the bottom of the 50 states in the percentage of residents age 25 and older who hold a baccalaureate degree. The program was designed to raise the level of educational attainment in Indiana and increase awareness of the potential of Indiana’s community foundations to improve the quality of life of the state’s residents.
    There are 26 students in Scott County who have been awarded the prestigious scholarship since 1998, which pays for four years of tuition and required fees, and $800 per year for books and required expenses at any public or private college in Indiana. Eight of those students are currently attending college for their baccalaureate degrees, while the remaining are attending graduate school or have graduated and pursued their various dreams.
