?    Floyd Central won a big 55-41 Hoosier Hills Conference (HHC) decision over host New Albany Saturday night, in a game in which Jennifer Smith scored 16 points for the Lady Highlanders.
    On Thursday, Borden hosted Paoli and won a girls’ basketball decision by a similar 55-41 score.
    And last Tuesday, Lanesville traveled to South Central and lost 51-31 in a Southern Athletic Conference (SAC) contest.
    Floyd Central 55, New Albany 41-Jennifer Smith’s 16 points were a big factor in the win for the Lady Highlanders, but the points weren’t always falling for Smith in the contest. She scored 10 of her 16 point total in the 2nd half, and three of the baskets were in the crucial 4th quarter.
    Up only 41-35 with 5:39 in the game, Floyd called a full time out, and Smith scored her three 4th quarter buckets over the remainder of the game.
    Brittany Sutton got New Albany even closer to the Lady Highlanders first, with her bucket at 5:19. The Lady Bulldogs were within 41-37 at this time, but Brigid Morrissey answered with a pair of free throws at 3:38.
    Lindsay Johnson contributed a bucket for the Lady Bulldogs 11 seconds later, but the Lady Highlanders outscored New Albany 12-2 the rest of the way for the win.
    Jennifer Smith scored her three buckets with 3:16, 2:40, and 26 seconds on the clock left in the game.
    Also contributing for Floyd in the 12-2 stretch were Erica Smith, Morgan Rookstool, and Shelby Allen.
    According to Floyd Central coach Joe Voelker, it was just the right time to get the ball into the hands of Jennifer Smith.
    “We started rushing possessions; the ball had to get to Jennifer Smith,” said Voelker. Voelker also was pleased with Morgan Rookstool’s play in the 1st half.

Austin quickly came into it, however, and Ashley Dowling hit two treys to put the lady Eagles on top 27-24. Austin stopped any second chance points by grabbing defensive boards in the paint. At the half, Austin led 41-33.

?New Austin system requires trash at curbside by 7 a.m. PDF Print E-mail
Written by Marty Randall   
Wednesday, 14 January 2009 00:00
?    Residents of Austin experienced few problems as the community’s new trash pick-up system became effective on Friday, January 2.
    But several people called the Mayor’s Office to complain that their trash wasn’t picked up - and there’s a good reason for most of those grievances.
    In order to have their garbage picked up on designated days, residents must place their trash at curbside no later than 7 a.m.
    In several cases, trash hadn’t been put out by residents until after the garbage truck crew had visited streets in question. Crews begin work pretty early as a rule because the transfer station, the site where all trash collected in Austin, Scottsburg and the county is collected by a contractor, is open from 9 a.m. to 3:45 p.m. Monday through Friday. To get two to three loads picked up, compressed and transported to the transfer station takes time. Residents need to help the crew by getting their trash bags and containers out early so that everything is ready to be picked up quickly as the truck travels along city streets.
