    The book rental fees at Lanesville for kindergarten through grade six were set by the Lanesville Board of School Trustees in their meeting Tuesday (June 9).
    The new fees were set as follows: kindergarten-$92.70, grade 1-$141.45, grade 2-$113.85, grade 3-$86.10, grade 4-$93.70, grade 5-$104.40, and grade 6-$95.00.
    In grade 3, the increases represent the addition of the use of a reading text, while any increases in other grades reflect an increase in the costs of consumable materials, and also new Social Studies textbooks. Any decreases reflect the omission of consumable materials.
    The board also approved various contracts for personnel needed in the June intercession.
    June intercession contracts were signed for Lisa Hammond, Bethany Miller, Erin Green, Jerry Geswein, Brian Book, and Robin Wolfe.
    Peer tutor pay for the intercession is still set at $5.00 per hour, where it has been since the intercessions have been held since the district went to the balanced calendar.
    The exact number of peer tutors has yet to be determined.
    The board also approved pay for bus drivers for the June intercession.
    In other business, the board:

- Approved of a donation of $50.00 to the elementary library, and a like $50.00 donation to the junior-senior high school library, from the Lanesville Heritage Committee.
- Approved a facility use request from the Boy Scouts of America, to use the cafeteria on August 5, 2009, for a parent meeting and sign up night.

Floyd Central falls in softball state semi finals, 5-1 PDF Print E-mail

    Floyd Central’s softball season ended Friday evening, when the Highlanders (23-7-1) fell 5-1 to West Lafayette Harrison in the Class 4A state semi finals at Ben Davis High School in Indianapolis.
    It was the most dramatic play in the offensive book that did it, too. West Lafayette Harrison’s Megan Mitchell hit one over the center field fence with the bases loaded, and the Highlanders were unable to muster any offense after that.
    “We were trying to get back to the top of the (batting) order,” said Floyd Central coach Joe Witten. The Highlanders had batters seven, eight, and nine come up in the last inning, and Witten said “we just couldn’t get another base runner. We dug such a big hole and ran out of outs.”
    Floyd Central hurt themselves with fielding errors throughout the contest.
    “We kicked the ball around and didn’t make routine plays,” said Witten, “but we still had a chance to win as poorly as (we) played.”
