    This past weekend, Tyler Byrne got to participate in one of the ultimate races in cross country on a National scale at the 6th Annual Nike Nationals held in Portland, Oregon. These elite participants from across the Nation consisted of 199 individual runners and 22 teams coming to Oregon by racing earlier in November from the 8 Qualifying Nike Regionals.  On Saturday December 5th, Tyler represented North Harrison and Southern Indiana in great fashion by finishing in 19th place overall in this highly competitive field with a time of 15:37. Tyler ran a 5:01 mile pace even with the challenging obstacles of Nike’s whoop-dee-doos and hay bales on a cold and foggy morning on the Portland Meadows 5K Course.
    But Tyler’s season is not over yet. Tyler is off again this coming weekend, to compete at the 31st Annual Foot Locker National Championships held in San Diego, California. Tyler is the only Indiana runner who qualified for both post season National Races.

Warriors defeat Musketeers of Eastern, 69-58 PDF Print E-mail

    The Scottsburg Warriors continued their season with their second regular season game, and their second straight conference match up at home.  They welcomed the visiting Pekin Easter Musketeers.  Both teams fought until the final buzzer, but the boys’ from Scottsburg came out with the win 69-58 on Tuesday, December 1.
    Action began poorly for the Warriors as they opened the game with a missed lay-up. However, Eastern handed the ball right back in the next two possessions being called for two offensive fouls. Neither team scored for over two minutes until a Scottsburg three pointer broke the ice. The up and down game found the Warriors on a 9-3 run and gaining momentum. However, some hot shooting by the Musketeers kept them in the game as they trailed 15-10 at the end of the first.
    The second period opened with more hot shooting from Eastern. They opened on a 6-0 run to take their first lead of the ball game. However, the Warriors took it right back on the very next possession. The game continued back and forth until Scottsburg gave themselves a little breathing room, opening up a six point lead. However, after several turnovers, the Warriors let Eastern back into the game. Thanks to poor free throw shooting by the Musketeers however, the Warriors found themselves up at the half 24-22.

Ferry to operate in Madison during temporary closing of bridge on U.S. 421 PDF Print E-mail

    The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) and the Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) released details on the proposed ferry service that would operate during the temporary closure of the US 421 bridge connecting Milton, Ky., and Madison.
    The free ferry service would take vehicles and pedestrians from the Milton boat ramp at Ferry St. to the former boat launching ramp at Ferry St. near the City of Madison campground. The estimated $5.6 million cost of ferry service is based on 7-day-a-week, 24-hour-a-day service, except when weather or river conditions make operations unsafe. “Two ferries would run most of the day, and one ferry would operate at night and on weekends,” said Kevin Hetrick, INDOT project manager. “If necessary, we could add a second ferry for big weekend events.” In addition to cars, the ferries could accommodate small trucks.
