? ?    In a big week for action between girls’ teams the previously unbeaten North Harrison Lady Cats had their 8-0 record blemished with a tough 59-58 overtime win by the host Floyd Central Lady Highlanders and the Borden Lady Braves won 62-46 at Lanesville over the Lady Eagles.
    In boys’ action, the Silver Creek Dragons barely escaped from Ramsey with a 60-56 Mid Southern Conference victory over the host North Harrison Cougars, and the Lanesville Eagles rolled 68-25 over Medora to help celebrate their homecoming.
Floyd Central 59,
North Harrison 58
    It took an overtime period to decide the matter, but it looked for a while like it would be decided early in the game Saturday afternoon.
    The Lady Cats took an early 14-2 lead, but the Lady Highlanders scored the last seven points in overtime to win the game. The Lady Cats had scored the first three goals of the overtime, but were outscored 7-0 the remainder of the extra period.
    Brigid Morrissey scored three points on a traditional three point play with 1:41 left in the overtime. Camry Hinton scored with 1:11 left, getting the Lady Highlanders within 58-57. Megan Rookstool dropped in two with 24.7 left on the clock, and that was all that was needed for the win.
    “We made some errors late in the game,” admitted North Harrison girls’ coach Hal Pearson. “Floyd Central did what they had to do late in the game.”
    A host of North Harrison players did the early damage, with Sasha Grangier, Kacey Cox, Kayla Lambert, and Wynn Shroyer doing the damage for the Lady Cats in the 14-4 start.

?State Sen. Lewis responds to new state revenue forecast PDF Print E-mail
Written by Marty Randall   
Wednesday, 17 December 2008 00:00
?? ?    According to the economic forecast presented recently to the State Budget Committee, Indiana’s revenue will be much lower for the current year than previously projected.
    The state’s revenue for the current fiscal year is now expected to be at least $720 million less than was forecast one year ago. The state is currently in the middle of fiscal year 2009, which runs from July 1, 2008, to June 30, 2009.
    Analysts expect little improvement in the state’s revenue forecast over the next two years, as well as a continued rise in the unemployment rate. The state may see unemployment levels reach as high as 8% in 2010 before the employment market improves, according to the recent forecast.
    “We must work together to follow through with our obligation to fully fund Indiana’s public schools,” said State Senator James Lewis.  “Although the revenue forecast is lower than expected, we must meet the needs of Hoosiers who rely on state services.”
