?    Ever attend a high school basketball game on a cold winter evening and think you would love to have something hot and delicious to warm you up and not have enough time to make dinner before heading to cheer on the team.
    The Henryville PTO along with the Henryville High School SADD and Key Clubs are making that dilemma a little easier to answer.
    The groups are sponsoring a chili supper on Friday evening, December 19 when the Hornets face Lanesville. The chili supper will be held from 5:30 to 7 p.m.
    A spaghetti dinner will be held on Friday evening, January 16 when the Hornets host the Mustangs of New Washington.

?    If you think it would be neat to send a note or memento to family members to be delivered 50 years from now in 2058, then get ready, you will be able to do just that this month. The Charlestown Time Capsule will be dedicated and sealed up to be re-opened 50 years from now in Charlestown’s sesquibicentennial celebration in 2058.
    The Capsule is a beautiful monument designed and donated by Charlestown Monument Company.
    “I want to thank Jeff Grayson, he has done an incredible job in designing this capsule that will be a great symbol of the community spirit we have in Charlestown. This monument will be in Greenway Park for the next 50 years as a reminder of this wonderful year-long celebration of Charlestown’s Bicentennial birthday,” stated Charlestown Mayor Bob Hall.
    There has been video taken of the city, video of the residents at Founders Day, items from Charlestown’s centennial and sesquicentennial, pictures on disk of all the events this year (including the hurricane) and many more items. Now the city is calling on all the citizens of Charlestown who would like to put something in the time capsule to bring it to City Hall to be included in this historic capsule.
    The dedication of the Time Capsule will be at 10 a.m. on Saturday, December 27 in Greenway Park. Everyone is invited and encouraged to attend.
    For more information call Geri Heal at City Hall at 256-3422.

?Charlestown Landing apartments plans proceeding PDF Print E-mail

?    The Charlestown Common Council meeting on December 1, revealed more details of an apartment complex that is in preliminary planning stages for Charlestown Landing, on the south end of the city.
    The 224 apartment units will be built in stages. The four buildings in Phase 1, containing 64 units, are expected to be completed in the Spring of 2009. The construction of a club house will follow, and then subsequent phases will be built as the original units are filled.
    Before construction can begin, various actions and approvals are required from the Charlestown Common Council as well the Advisory Plan Commission (planning and zoning board).
    At the recommendation of the Advisory Plan Commission, the requested zoning variance was approved by the council.
    Charlestown Mayor Bob Hall indicated the apartment development is very timely in the current housing situation, as mortgages have become more difficult to obtain. The jobs this creates will help, also. The council is unanimously supporting the development. In other business:
    *The 2009 Budget for Capital Improvements was approved.
    *City Attorney Mike Gillenwater provided an update on the land-swap between the city and Greater Clark County Schools (GCCS).  
    The Charlestown Common Council meets the first Monday of each month at 6:30 p.m.

?County Council meets for final time in 2008 PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 10 December 2008 00:00
??    The Washington County Council met for the final time this year on Monday, December 1; all members were present.  The minutes of previous meetings and all claims were approved unanimously.
    Nancy Lambring of the Department of Child Services (DCS) addressed the Council giving an update on expected expenses and revenues for her department through the remainder of 2008.  Under the new “circuit breaker” property tax plan, funding for DCS will revert to the State of Indiana as of January 1, 2009.  However, DCS expenses and revenues through the end of the current year will not be completely calculated for 60-90 days after the first of the year according to Lambring.  
    She estimated total expenses for the remainder of 2008 coming due in 2009 are in excess of $76,000.  Furthermore, it is expected that some of that amount will be reimbursed by the state and federal governments.
     Lambring was uncertain as to what the reimbursements would be.
