?West Clark Football Boosters ask school board to approve Henryville football program PDF Print E-mail

?    Based upon two successful seasons of the “pilot” program at Silver Creek,  the West Clark Community School Board has been asked to approve the start of the football program in Henryville.  
    At the December school board meeting, booster member Linda Uhl, supported by parents and members of the community, asked the school board to put the Henryville vote on their agenda for the January meeting.
    There has always been strong community support for the implementation of this new athletic program but the school board elected to make Silver Creek a “pilot” before approving other programs. Success of the pilot program was based not only on game scores but noticeable improvement in academic performance, attendance and behavior in players. Teachers and school administrators have commented on the positive changes they have observed in members of the football team.  
    If you are interested in getting the football program in Henryville schools underway, the Boosters encourage you to attend the January school board meeting.  The meeting will be held on Thursday, January 8  at the West Clark Community School Administration building next to Silver Creek High School. The meeting begins at 7:30 p.m.

?CBC ends Bicentennial stepping stone sales PDF Print E-mail

?    The Charlestown Beautification Committee has ended the sale of the Bicentennial stepping stones and ask that those that have not picked up their stones take their ticket stub to the Concrete Lady on Highway 3 and pick the stones up.
    The Concrete Lady ran some extra stepping stones so those that did not get a chance to buy from the CBC can go directly to the plant and purchase any of the four designs.
    According to Chairperson Jo Ann Goodlett, the committee had a net profit of over $3,500 from the sales of the stones that helped fund the Bicentennial event.
    The Woods family have again agreed to donate a 2009 stone to help fund the CBC in 2009. Artist Dixie Busby is working with the Concrete Lady on the new design that will be ready this Spring.
    The Beautification Committee would like to extend their thanks to Carl, Peggy and Tony Woods of the Concrete Lady and to artist Dixie Busby and Jo Ann Goodlett and Geri Heal for their work in making this project a success.

Tuesday, 06 January 2009 00:00
?    The Washington County Council met in its first regularly scheduled meeting of 2009 with all members present.  After one correction, the minutes of the previous meeting were approved unanimously.
    The first item of business was for reorganization of the Council by way of electing a Council President and Vice-President.  In a split vote, the Council elected Mark Manship as President and John Fultz and Vice-President.
    The Council heard from Washington County Prosecutor, Dustin Houchin, who explained his efforts thus far to cut expenses by turning over the responsibility of bad check collections to a secretary rather than a deputy prosecutor.  In addition, Houchin requested and received approval to distribute $3,252 of state money into education and travel expense funds for Adult Protective Services.
