    Several local educators were honored with Excellence in Education awards recently. The awards are used for class projects and any necessary supplies that will enhance the capability of that teacher and enable the students’ learning process. Funding for the grants is the result of the Timothy Michael Wolf Memorial Scholarship Fund established at the Scott County Community Foundation. Five awards are given annually to educators whose projects demonstrate the most promise of enhancing the education of students in Scott County School District 2.

    On the return debut of Indiana hall of fame coach Donna Cheatham at Scottsburg, the atmosphere in Meyer Gym was electric. The all time winningness coach in IHSSA girls’ basketball history returned to the place where she won the 1989 state championship. Her new Warriorettes team took on the visiting Jennings County Lady Panthers and added to Cheatham’s wins with a 59-30 blowout on Friday, November 13..
    The game started off great for the Warriorettes as Symantha Norton scored on the very first possession, giving them a quick 2-0 lead and adding more excitement to the already eccentric crowd. Scottsburg then picked it up on the other end of the court playing pressure defense and holding the Lady Panthers to only four points in the quarter. However, after a three pointer and a quick steal by Courtney Means, the Warriorettes began to cool off. Then Scottsburg went on a 6-1 run late to extend their lead to 11-4 at the end of the quarter.

    Dr. Teresa Davidson, director of Sunshine Chiropractic, and Melissa Heal are taking action and requesting your help! Chiropractic for Kids Toy Drive is underway beginning today through December 16.
    The holidays are about to go full force beginning with the cooking of the Thanksgiving turkey. Stores are loaded up with decorations and the holiday sales have begun.
    But what are you thinking about this year? Is this the year that you choose to join the masses of people who volunteer or maybe you long to make a difference year round? Many people join the volunteer forces at or around the holidays, it seems the differences between people and their community becomes more prolific and harder to ignore at this time of the year.

    A Charlestown resident has been released on bond after his arrest early on the morning of Monday, November 16, on Interstate 65 in Scott County.
    Philip A. Lakes II, 31, was taken into custody shortly after 2 a.m. by Indiana State Trooper Michael Davis after the officer stopped Lakes' 2003 GMC Yukon about two miles south of the Scottsburg interchange. The stop was made after the ISP Seymour post had received a call about a possible intoxicated driver headed south on I-65.
    The officer found Lakes to be impaired, the probable cause affidavit related, but the man may have a good case to present in Scott Superior Court. Lakes told Trp. Davis that he was on his way home after having attended the Sunday night game between the Indianapolis Colts and their arch rivals, the New England Patriots.
