Off-road vehicles became legal on Franklin County roads on Sep. 1 but some residents are fighting back against the ordinance.The Franklin County Observer reported that Franklin County Commissioners had adjourned their meeting on Sep. 3 before Wayne Monroe had a chance to address the commissioners.He was able to present commissioners with copies of a petition that was signed by 34 residents on Reservoir, Spaeth, and Keeler Roads who are against off-road vehicles.Monroe also included information from the state of Indiana showing 327 deaths of ORV riders in 2011 and over a thousand emergency room visits for other injuries, according to the Observer.The speed limit on Reservoir Road is 30mph, but he cited traffic typically moves between 40 and 50 mph.Monroe fears that someone may be killed on one of those roads due to the amount of traffic as well as the disregard for the speed limit.Commissioners have previously stated that they expected petitions to be filed against ATV’s on certain county roads and would disallow them on the roads where the majority of landowners voted against the off-road vehicles.
After this long, cold winter, I am really looking forward to the spring sport season. Let’s hope that the weatherman has a better forecast for April and May than he has had for the past 4 months. We will need rain for the lawn, the crops, and the trees, but let’s hope it comes early in the morning or late at night so the spring sports can go on as scheduled.I am looking forward to working with Coach Gausman’s track team. The girls are coming off a very successful last season, and they are hoping to win another conference and sectional championship. The boys team has also been winning regularly over the past few years.The girls team returns 3 athletes who performed at the state last year. They are Riley Goldsmith in the 400m dash, Virginia Westerfeld in the 100m dash, and Kim Tidman in the high jump. The boys were not able to get any of their regional performers into the state. Both squads have had state champs in the past 5 years, and Chris Giesting (a student and athlete at Notre Dame) is performing at an extremely high level. Ellie Tidman of Vanderbilt recently had her best collegiate high jump ever.Good luck to both high school squads and to all the former Batesville athletes performing at the collegiate level now.

There are many things you look forward to every year. One of those is the first warm, sunny April day. Spring athletes leave school at approximately 3 p.m. and head for the practice fields and courts. At least that is what you hope when you coach a spring sport.The fragrance of blooming flowers, fresh cut grass, and all the greenery that is around you is a welcome lift from the gray, leafless trees that have been so prevalent since last November. I have enjoyed going to track practice on just these type days for many years. I am sure the baseball, softball, and golf coaches feel the same way. Even though the tennis coaches practice on their paved courts, the unique smell of a spring day makes it just as nice even if they aren’t on grass. Enjoy whatever sport you are interested in –even though it rains from time to time. It is, after all, spring.
