Summer food program offers free lunches this summer for children 18 and under PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 03 June 2009 00:00
    Bradie Shrum Elementary qualified for the Summer Food Service Program for the first time and all children, 18 and under  in Washington County are eligible to receive a free meal each Monday, Wednesday and Friday from noon to 1 p.m. at Southway Villa, beginning June 8 and continuing through July 31.
    “This is the first year we have qualified in the last eight years. For our school to be eligible in this program we had to be over 50 percent enrollment in the free and reduced lunch program and at the time of the deadline we were at 50.1 percent. Right now we are at a higher percent. Although Bradie Shrum was the school that qualified, this program provides for the whole community, all of Washington County. You do not have to be enrolled in  Salem schools to participate in this program, which is a benefit for all.” stated Karen Libka, Food Services Director, Salem Community Schools.
“If you have a child that is of school age and his little brother or sister wants to come and eat, that is perfectly fine to.” said Libka.
    “This program is just one example why all parents should apply for the free and reduced lunch program and other programs offered, it helps the school with many different grants available.” said Libka.
    “Everyone has went up in the free and reduced program based on the economy but mostly because of full day kindergarten. For full day kindergarten your income decides what you pay for lunch and other school fees. If you qualify for the free program you only pay $1 per week for kindergarten, if you qualified for reduced you pay $5 and if you did not qualify you pay $25 a week. This encouraged a lot more parents to apply and in turn helped us qualify for this program.” said Libka.

Highlanders win own girls’ tennis regional PDF Print E-mail

    The Floyd Central girls’ tennis team defeated the New Albany Bulldogs 5-0 Wednesday in the championship game of the Floyd Central girls’ tennis regional. A day earlier, the Lady Highlanders won 3-2 over a tough Silver Creek squad. It was their 11th overall regional title in girls’ tennis, and the
    Floyd Central girls’ tennis volunteer assistant coach Brandon Miller said that the team has been at their best all through the state tournament.
    “All the girls played their best tennis,” Miller said.
    New Albany drew the praise and respect of Miller, noting that with the two schools being big Floyd County rivals and Hoosier Hills Conference foes, the Lady Bulldogs were coming into a “hostile environment”.
    “New Albany always has great teams,” Miller said.
    Miller said that his father, head girls’ tennis coach Rick Miller, was the type who prepared intensely for all teams, not overlooking anybody.
    “Don’t overlook any team,” Brandon Miller said. “We prepare the same way every time. We try to get mentally ready for a grueling match.”
    For example, the first round match with Silver Creek was a close 3-2 win for the Lady Highlanders.
    “It was very close; closer than anybody would have liked it to be.”

Henryville wins 5-1 over Lanesville in Class A softball sectional finals PDF Print E-mail

    Henryville used a big 4-0 seventh inning to defeat the no. 11 ranked Lanesville Eagles in softball at Henryville Friday afternoon.
    The Lady Hornets won their third consecutive sectional title in Class A in the process.
    The game was tied 1-1 headed into the final inning, when Henryville got what Lanesville coach Bill Krammes called a couple of “bloop singles”, but they actually lost the contest in the early innings when they failed to be aggressive on the base paths, and score a couple of times, according to Krammes.
    In the first inning, Krammes said that after Ashley Schoen stole third base, she should have gone home and scored after an errant throw by Henryville, but they failed to send her home.
    After that, another situation where the Lady Eagles failed to score made a big diference in the game, according to Krammes.
    “We messed up as coaches,” said Krammes. “We let the kids down.”
    “They got some lucky hits,” Krammes said of Henryville.
    Ashley Dickerson of Henryville hit a two run single during the fateful seventh inning comeback for the Lady Hornets.
    Teammate Rebecca Snodgrass had a pair of base hits, including a single which drove in a Henryville run in the first frame.

    The Floyd Central girls’ tennis team fell 5-0 to the Terre Haute South squad at Saturday’s semi state at Jasper High School.
    The Lady Highlanders feature a squad in which six of the seven varsity players had never played a varsity match until the season started back in April.
    Volunteer Assistant Coach Brandon Miller said, “I thought we played really competitive. For us, being in the final 16 teams in the State of Indiana is a huge accomplishment for us. If anything, the girls’ overachieved.”
    Throughout the season, the team has found a way to come up with whatever was needed in the way of effort. Even if one of the five positions wasn’t having their best day, someone usually pulled through.
    “When we needed it most, we played our best,” Miller said.
    Miller was proud of the work and effort that the team put into playing the game of tennis.
    “They put a lot of time and effort into it,” he added.
    At the no. 1 singles spot, South’s Hunter Bullock def. Carmen Schreiber 6-1, 6-0. At the no. 2 singles position, Floyd’s Sandra McCaffrey was def. by South’s Taylor Bullock 6-1, 6-3, and in the no. 3 singles spot, South’s Maddie Kessler def. Annie Hunt 6-0, 6-0.
    In the doubles spots, South’s top duo of Mallory Matheny and Emma Bilyeu won 7-5, 7-5 over Chelsea Burch and Chelsey Shackelford, and at the no. 2 spot, Alexis Summers and Easha Purohit won 6-2, 6-2 over Floyd’s duo of Kayla Oldham and Emily Wimbec.
    Floyd Central ended the season with a 15-6 record.
