    On Friday, October 2, 2009, Congressman Baron Hill toured the recently-opened Scott County Community-Based Outpatient Clinic (CBOC). Hill has been involved with securing a CBOC for Southern Indiana veterans in Scott County for several years.
    The CBOC, which is strategically located near Scott Memorial Hospital, currently retains two full-time doctors –– with room to expand to five if needed. The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) facility actually opened about a year ago, but was located in a temporary location while the current site underwent construction. Currently, the CBOC is serving more than 1,400 veterans.
    Veterans from Scott, Washington, Jefferson, Jackson, Clark, Bartholomew and Jennings Counties are accessing the CBOC’’s services. And, the doctors report that many of those veterans were previously driving to Indianapolis, Louisville or Cincinatti for care. The Scott County CBOC is much closer for many of these Southern Indiana veterans.
    According to the VA’s web site, the Scott County center is staffed with highly-trained providers specializing in providing a full range of primary care, mental health and other preventative and ancillary services.
    “The opening of this facility in Scott County is great news for our Southern Indiana veterans,” Hill said. “They should not have to drive long distances to get the care they need. I was very impressed with the doctors and support staff I met during my tour and appreciate that they took time out of their day to show me around.”

    A new house for rats and mice and a Family Fun Weekend are divergent but great news about what's happening at Hardy Lake State Recreational Area.
    Tucked into the northeast corner of Scott County, Hardy Lake attracts fishermen, campers and boating enthusiasts nearly every month of the year. Special events are also offered, including monthly Saturday morning breakfasts served outdoors by members of Friends of Hardy Lake, the recent Raptor Days and the upcoming Family Fun Weekend.
Assistant lake property manager Terry Davis noted it's been a pretty busy season with more people than ever taking advantage of the lake's attractions.
    The lake also has one of the few licensed raptor rehabilitation centers in Indiana. The Dwight Chamberlain Raptor Rehab Center is home to several permanently-injured animals, including the lake's bald eagle, who is now fully mature at 5½ years.

    The Pirate Football Team (7?2), 2009 Mid?Southern Conference Champions for the third consecutive year, suffered a disappointing setback at Lawrenceburg last Friday to end an otherwise very successful regular season.
    Lawrenceburg prevailed on a cold and rainy night 20?14. The Pirates scored the first points of the game in the second stanza when senior Michael Baines carried the ball 93 yards from the line of scrimmage to score and give the Pirates a 6?0 lead.  The Pirates scored again in the fourth when freshman quarterback Gage Brafford connected in the air with senior Jordan Williams for a 50 yard touchdown strike. Senior Michael Baines added a two point conversion run to reduce the Pirates deficit to six; 20?14, with a little more than four minutes remaining.
    The Pirates however were unable to score again and dropped the contest with eyes now set on the state tournament.
