    After having been defeated by Kentucky’s no. 1 volleyball team (Assumption) the night before across the river, Floyd Central coach Bart Powell was wondering how his Lady Highlanders would respond to their first loss of the season when visiting Silver Creek. The Floyd girls have been ranked no. 1 most of the season, and were 12-0 headed into the game at Assumption.
    The Lady Highlanders responded to the challenge with a 25-13, 25-7, 25-14 sweep of the Lady Dragons. Floyd Central now stands at 13-1.
    Referring to the week just completed, Powell said it had been “a little bit up and a little bit down.”
    He added, “Sometimes when we’re playing, I don’t think we’re playing as well as we can. It was good to see us rebound tonight.”
    Assumption was not only the top ranked volleyball team in Kentucky, but they were ranked 19th in the nation in some polls. Floyd Central has been ranked in the top 30 nationally themselves.
    Powell attributes the win to taking care of the ball.
    “We had a lot of good ball control all night,” he said.
    Besides, in game 2, Floyd had eight aces, and Powell said that from a serving standpoint, “we controlled that game.”
    Melanie Stutsman had 25 assists in the match, and Camry Hinton added 5 kills. Allison Sims added 5 aces, with 3 of them in the middle game.

    North Harrison’s boys’ golf team defeated Eastern 3-2 in a match last week, and as far as North Harrison Coach Bart Bigham can recall, it’s been a while since his team has won over Eastern.
    “It’s the first time in a while that we’ve beaten them,” Bigham said. “They’ve pretty much dominated us in the last few years.”
    It was the no. 3 singles and the two doubles teams that saved North Harrison.
    T. J. Carver def. Eastern’s Wayne Collard 6-7, 7-6, 6-4 at the third singles spot, while at no. 1 doubles, Alec Dones and Bryce Nowak def. Eastern’s duo of Terrance Chastain and Josiah Watters, 6-2, 7-5. In the no. 2 doubles position, North’s pair of Dakota Bosler and Lincoln Jones def. Eastern’s Drew Logue and Matt Pickerell, 5-7, 6-0, 6-3.
    At the no. 1 singles spot, Eastern’s Michael Doebler def. North Harrison’s Sean Drury, 6-0, 6-1.
    At the no. 2 singles spot, Jayben Temple of Eastern def. North’s Jacob Outcalt, 6-4, 6-1.

A Lexington man has been held at the Scott County Security Center pending a hearing in Scott Circuit Court on his competency to hire legal counsel to represent him on six charges filed against him in connection with an incident that occurred in Austin on Wednesday, September 16.
Eric R. Rasnick, 29, has been charged with Class C felony resiting law enforcement, Class D felony resisting law enforcement and criminal recklessness and Class A misdemeanor counts of resisting law enforcement, criminal recklessness and battery.
Lt. Shawn Hurt of the Austin Police Department prepared the probable cause affidavit for the Scott County Prosecutor's Office. In the document, Lt. Hurt stated that he was dispatched to Paulanna Avenue on September 16 along with Reserve Patrolman Shane Deaton to investigate a possible case of battery.
When the officers arrived, Lt. Hurt said he saw a man running toward a silver vehicle parked close to the officer's patrol car. People at the scene told him that the man was Rasnick. He said he used his flashlight to nick and ordered him to stop. Rasnick, he said, got into the driver's seat and drove his vehicle toward the patrol unit and Lt. Hurt, but as the officer began walking up to the vehicle, Rasnick drove the car closer, causing Lt. Hurt to step back and against his unit to avoid being hit. As Rasnick drove by, Lt. Hurt said he hit the rear window of Rasnick's vehicle with the flashlight, breaking the back window.

    Recordings of conversations between a man and two alleged prostitutes helped officers investigating reported illegal activity charge two suspects.
    Major/Detective Lonnie Noble stated in probable cause affidavits filed in the cases against Melissa N. Sword, 23, and Lisa L. Hensley, 38, that each woman agreed to perform certain sexual acts in exchange for money on September 15. Hensley reportedly entered the man's vehicle to talk about the agreement  She had allegedly been walking on Rural Street. Sword reportedly had been walking on Church Street when approached.
    Both women were taken into custody and transported to the Scott County Security Center in Scottsburg.
At their initial court appearance on Thursday, September 17, in Scott Superior Court, not guilty pleas were entered for each on counts of prostitution, both Class A misdemeanors. Bail was set at $10,000 corporate surety or 10% cash.
Though Sword remains incarcerated, Hensley was released to a relative so that she might seek treatment at Turning Point. The relative was to transport her to the program site to seek admittance. If she was not accepted for the program, she was to be returned to the Scottsburg jail with her original bond to be reinstated.
    That apparently did not happen. An arrest warrant has now been issued for Hensley, and the State also filed a motion to revoke her bond. That motion is scheduled for a court hearing on September 29.

    The Clark County Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD) recently received Clean Water Indiana grant funds to promote conservation practices in Clark County. As a result, the SWCD has partnered with the City of Jeffersonville, Memphis Meats and Walnut Ridge Nursery, to host an Urban Conservation Workshop.
    Entitled “Buffers In The City,” the workshop will showcase the riparian buffer practice, which is designed to reduce the amount of sediment and nutrients that flow into a waterbody and ultimately improves water quality. One such buffer was planted earlier this year in Wathen Park in order to decrease the negative impact of nutrient runoff (in the form of fertilizers and pesticides applied to neighboring lawns, and stormwater runoff from the impervious areas of te neighborhood streets) on the waterbodies located in the park.
    The workshop will be held at Wathen Park on Regina Avenue in Jeffersonville on October 2 with the following schedule of activities:
