County Council calls for Strategic Economic Development Plan PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 11 March 2009 00:00
    The Washington County Council met in regular session on March 2 with all members present.  The minutes of previous meetings plus payroll and all claims were approved unanimously.
    Hank Jacoby of the Washington County Chamber of Commerce (CC) made a presentation to the Council about Washington County's assets and opportunities for improvement based on criteria contained in the “CNN/Money Top 100 Places to Live” list.  Jacoby focused on Hoosier cities and towns included in the list and compared the data from those communities with that of Washington County.  
    Emphasizing that Washington County must have a vision for competing in a global economy and a strategy to bring business revenue into the county by marketing worldwide, Jacoby said that the time is right to redefine economic development plans.  He went on to point out the fact that new opportunities always seem to arise out of downward economic trends.  Jacoby suggested that current efforts by the Chamber, the Washington County Economic Growth Partnership (WCEGP) and the Washington County Tourism Board (WCTB) to find common ground and to explore ways to work together for the good of the county could not be coming at a better time.

North Harrison Alumni Game raises over $2,800 for Relay For Life group at high school PDF Print E-mail

    The alumni basketball game held Saturday night at North Harrison raised over $2,800 in early estimates, with a final tally yet to be determined. The game was sponsored by North Harrison High School’s Relay for Life team, which raises money for cancer research. Last year, the game alone raised $1,762, but bad weather forced the game last year to be postponed from the original scheduled date, and North Harrison High School Relay for Life sponsor Amber (Rothrock) Sater said the weather probably made a difference in the negative last year.
    This year the threat of snow didn’t deter a large group of fans who normally either watch the boys’ and the girls’ basketball games, or else play in them.
    Sater said that each of the four classes in the high school competed to see who could bring the most fans to the game in their class. The classes compete against each other in various activities all year long, and the class with the most points at the end of the year gets to go to Buffalo Trace Park in Palmyra on a field trip later in the school year.
    Relay for Life actually takes only one month off a year from fund raising duties, and that month is July. The actual relay its self is on June 12-13.
    “When we come back in August, we start raising money again,” said Sater.
