    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.

Scottsburg's Revolving Loan Fund recertified; money used to help industries PDF Print E-mail

    Recertification of the Scottsburg Revolving Loan Fund (RLF) was one of the first items on the November 16  agenda of the Scottsburg City Council.
    With a full Council attending, officials voted to approve a resolution that recertified the steps taken on how such loan applications are judged and how loans are approved and closed by the City.
    According to figures supplied by Mayor Bill Graham, the City has loaned out over $300,000 to industries over the past several years. Funds for the RLF have been received by Scottsburg from the Economic Development Agency and USDA Rural Development. Currently, noted city attorney Kerry Thompson, the City has about $250,000 available to loan. “I received an application for some money today from an industry that wants to expand,” he related to the Council.
    The City has been fortunate with RLF money. “We've lost some over the past 20 years, but we've also been able to help several industries when they've needed the help,” commented Mayor Graham. In the past, money was loaned to the old Bowater plant and was also used to improve Armory Drive which benefited industries in south Scottsburg. The RLF was also tapped to build the Scott County Community Clearinghouse, a facility which has helped thousands of people over the past ten years.

        After grabbing a win over arch rival Scottsburg in their previous game, the Austin Lady Eagles made another Mid-Southern Conference (MSC) stop at Charlestown on December 2 to take on the hosting Lady Pirates.
        What was a close game in the first half turned around in the Lady Eagles' favor thanks in part to senior spark Katy McIntosh in the last two quarters.
        The Lady Eagles walked off the court with a 56-43 victory and improved their overall record to 5-0 on the year and 2-0 in the MSC.
        The first half began with a steal and a lay-in by Michelle Goodin which was followed up by 4 nice points made by McIntosh to put the score at 6-0 Eagles.
        When a basket from the paint by Shantel Gray gave Austin a 10-2 lead, the Lady Pirates called a quick time out to get some plays set up. Charlestown began to creep back into the game and eventually snatched a 16-15 advantage over the visitors.
