    In a possible preview of a match up in the Floyd Central Girls’ Tennis Sectional, the Floyd Central Lady Highlanders won a 5-0 sweeping of the North Harrison Lady Cats Wednesday (April 29) at the Floyd Central courts.
    It wasn’t as though North Harrison didn’t win any individual games in any of the sets; they won games in every set except the two set match at the no. 3 singles position.
    The Lady Highlanders managed to avoid sending any of the five positions into a third set, either.
    At the no. 1 singles position, Carmen Schreiber def. Wynn Shroyer 6-3, 6-1. The no. 2 singles spot saw Annie Hunt win 6-1, 6-2 over Caitlyn Janes. And at the no. 3 singles position, Sandra McCaffrey def. Hannah Raake 6-0, 6-0.

Lanesville baseball diamond nearing completion of renovations PDF Print E-mail

    The Lanesville High School baseball diamond is nearing the end of a series of renovations and improvements, and should be able to host home games soon, the Lanesville Board of School Trustees learned recently.
    The most noticeable improvement to the facility is the addition of lights. The Indiana high School Athletic Association (IHSAA) has recently passed a regulation requiring any school hosting a baseball sectional in any of the four classes to have lights for night games.
    In addition to the new lights, better drainage, new sodding, and new foul poles have been added to the facility.
    Lanesville interim Supt. Sam Gardner said last week that “we hope to play on (the field) in the next week or two.”
    The project has obviously extended well into the month of May, while the high school baseball season starts roughly at the beginning of April.
    “It was a major ‘to do’”. said Supt. Gardner.
    In another matter also related to the facilities of the school, Darrin Duncan represented the Harrison County Storm Water and Sewer District and requested the board approve a demonstration project regarding runoff rain water from the parking lot in front of the high school.
    Gardner said that Lanesville Schools are in the Indian Creek Watershed Area, and in fact the creek runs next to the south side of the school property.
    The project will be to try to prevent erosion, and to test runoff water for pollutants.
    The board didn’t formally sign a contract, but did approve a Memorandum of Understanding agreeing to the project.
    In other business, the board:

Revised the 2009-10 school calendar, because the Indiana General Assembly decided to disallow half days for either professional development or parent-teacher conferences.

Adopted textbooks for social studies (both elementary and junior-senior high).

Read an initial draft on a revision to the corporation’s Transportation Policy.

Accepted a $60.00 donation from the Harrison County Soil and Water Conservation board to the FFA for a scholarship to pay Envirothon entry fees

Accepted a donation of $8,000.00 for a boot camp, from the Harrison County Community Foundation.

Approved a facility use request for use of the parking lot and high school entry way for a Harrison County Health Department Rabies Clinic on May 7, 2009.

Hired Rebecca Klusmeier as a math instructor at the junior-senior high school. She grew up in the general area, and is currently living in Georgia with her husband, who is in the military. She was one of 13 applications, all “top quality”, according to Gardner.

They are asking the kids from Borden grades 9?12 ages 14?18 who want to play football to call Borden youth league president Rick Cannon at 502?523?2665 before Sunday, May 10.
    Any high school kids interested in playing football this season will need to pay a $200 fee to play. The fee includes insurance and your own jersey with your name on the back plus referee fees and some of the cost of the all new equipment. The league needs at least 25 kids to play.
    All kids will get equal playing time.
    Also the league is taking applications for all football coaching positions and are preparing to start all league division sign ups. Kids who want to play but can not afford to play can get someone or a company to sponsor them. The league has those forms available. All kids this year will  participate in the  Borden Youth League Braves With Drug Free Smoke Signals prevention and education program .  
    They are also looking for league sponsors. If you are interested you may also can call league president Rick Cannon at 502?523?2665.

Open House Plans Being Expanded at Englishton Park PDF Print E-mail

Wednesday, 06 May 2009 00:00
    The Englishton Park Presbyterian Ministries and Three Spring’s Inc. Saturday, May 16 event on the Englishton Park Campus continues to grow in the planning for that day.
    Many local merchants have donated items to be included in a Silent Auction that will be held throughout that day, including Gift Certificates from Anthony’s, Gilley’s Automatic Car Wash, Goin’ Postal, Jeeves and Company, Lickety Split Ice Cream, and Rough Edges “what-not shop”.
    In addition to these Gift Certificates, there have been four merchants that have donated products for the auction, including CVS; a fabric cooler and a bag of charcoal, Hancock’s Drugstore; a scented candle, Scott’s Hardware; a Hummingbird Feeder with nectar and Scottsburg Stoneware; a heart shaped decorative bowl.
    These Certificates and Gifts are much appreciated, as the funds generated from their sale in the auction will be used to help offset costs of the Open House, with any excess funds going toward expenses of the Englishton Park Summer Youth Program, entering it’s 41st year. The Summer Camp staff reports in on June 1st and the first of four groups of children (30 –36 youth per group) arrive on June 14.
    Previous articles have mentioned “Free Hotdogs, Chips and Iced Tea or Lemonade to the first 100 people.” The way that will work will be the first 100 will be given a lunch ticket as they enter the parking area that will be presented when they pick up their light lunch.
    Regarding the parking and transportation, the main parking will be at the top of the hill on the South Drive; that is Parker Lane, off Highway 203 just North of Lexington. Handicapped people will be allowed to park in parking areas close to the activities until the crowds grow into a situation where it may not be safe for vehicular traffic. Golf carts will be used for personal handicap transportation when the other handicapped parking areas are closed or inaccessible.

Five are charged for alleged involvement in Scottsburg burglary last December PDF Print E-mail
Written by Marty Randall

    A young woman with a Charlestown address and four young men have been charged in connection with a home burglary that occurred in Scottsburg last December.
    Elizabeth C. Wilson, 19, and four youths, all of whom were 17 when the crime occurred, are being charged respectively in Scott Circuit Court and Juvenile Court. Wilson was charged with one count each of conspiracy to commit burglary and aiding burglary, Class B felonies in Circuit Court. The four young men were all 17 at the time of the burglary, which happened December 5, 2008. Three have since turned 18 but are being charged as juveniles because of their ages at the time of the incident.
    According to the probable cause affidavit prepared by Lt./Detective Mike Nichols of the Scottsburg Police Department, Wilson and the four young men quickly became suspects because of their association with the victimized family. Two of the four reportedly gave the police detective some of the items that had been listed as stolen the day after the crime was reported., and one of the youths allegedly said that one of his friends admitted to taking the items from the house.
