?    After finally a chance to see your team in action against someone other than itself, what Charlestown coach Tony Hall saw on Saturday was pleasing for the most part, as the Pirates turned back Crawford County 62-58 at Bill Dunn Sports Arena.
    Charlestown (1-0) showed a bit of everything. They opened a large lead, let that slip away and then came back with timely free throw shooting and defense.
    “We didn’t win this game with any big offensive flurry at the end,” Hall said. “We won it with defense and it takes guts to play defense. We had a couple of girls, Brittany Bennison and Morgan Allen, really show some guts down the stretch tonight.”

?Washington County Chamber of Commerce commits to transparency in the future PDF Print E-mail
Thursday, 20 November 2008 00:00
?    Acknowledging errors in the past, new Washington County Chamber of Commerce president, Hank Jacobi, said, “We’re in a hole but also on a springboard.” The enthusiastic, yet realistic Jacobi told WCCC members and guests that the recent downswing in the economy means that the future definitely is something to look forward to. Jacobi emphasized the importance of transparency in all its activities if the WCCC was to be relevant to the future growth of Washington County.
    According to a financial report distributed at the November 13 meeting, WCCC has total liabilities of nearly $7300 in state and federal payroll tax. The liabilities go back over a significant period of time. A comparison of that liability to the WCCC’s bank balance of $5116 clearly is a cause for concern.
    After a Powerpoint presentation outlining his vision for WCCC, Jacobi facilitated a brainstorming session in which the objective was to identify the things that Washington County does well. According to Jacobi, focusing on what an organization does well is the first step in digging out of the aforementioned hole.
    The meeting ended with an overall positive tone and general consensus to work toward ways to revitalize the role of WCCC in the community
