    The Lanesville Community Schools have received a grant of $40,000 from the Harrison County Community Foundation (HCCF) for beautification of the northern hillside along the track which runs alongside Meadowlark Drive in Lanesville.
    The endowment came from local boosters of the school corporation and will be interest drawing, and will be used to keep the area beautified for years in the future.
    The area also includes the northern edge of the tennis courts, which are also on Meadowlark Drive.
    The area is near a flood plain next to Indian Creek, which winds through Lanesville on the northern side of State Road 62.
    The Lanesville Future Farmers of America (FFA) will actually be doing the work with the shrubs, mulch, and landscaping that will be done in the project.

    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.
