Excitement is building for those who love to celebrate Christmas right after Thanksgiving by attending or participating in the annual lighted parade and Courtyard Christmas in downtown Scottsburg.

Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus are coming to Scottsburg on that Saturday as honored guests in the city’s lighted parade, and everyone, young and old, has a special invitation to come downtown to see them.

The annual celebration offers all families a chance to visit with Mr. and Mrs. Santa in the decorated Santa's Castle on the northeast side of the Courthouse right after the parade concludes.

Parade entries will line up in the parking lot behind Scottsburg Elementary School starting at 5 p.m. on November 25. The parade will begin at 6 p.m. and wind around the downtown square from McClain Avenue (State Road 56). Mayor Bill Graham will be featured in the parade, and he’ll step out of his float to help with the annual lighting ceremony at the gazebo on the courthouse lawn.

Awards will be presented for the best entries from fire departments, businesses, church/civic groups and cars. An award for the entry selected Best Overall will also be presented.

Several downtown businesses are planning evening hours that Saturday, inviting visitors in for Christmas treats, too. Christmas music will be offered, lots of holiday lights can be admired, and free horse-and-carriage rides are scheduled. Line up on the sidewalk on the southeast side of the Courthouse for the rides.

More information on the parade and Courtyard Christmas and how to participate may be obtained by calling the Mayor's Office at 812-752-3169.

Call that number as well to contribute money toward Courtyard Christmas efforts. Volunteers are always needed, too.

A visit to the local McDonald’s Restaurant in Scottsburg resulted in a longer visit to the Scott County Security Center for a Chicago resident.

Dymond Raybon, 20, was placed in custody on Saturday, November 11, after she allegedly gave a fake $100 bill to a McDonald’s staff member. In return, Raybon received change for buying some food there. The bill caught the attention of the staff, however, and, as Raybon was waiting for her order, Sgt. Rodney Watts arrived to have a look at the bill.

It was compared with a $100 dollar bill handed to another server by a young man a few minutes before. That person got his food and his change and left walking west. He was not located.

The two bills were copies of each other, the comparison revealed, and both were counterfeit.

Raybon was taken to the local jail, and a charge of counterfeiting, a Level 6 felony, was filed against her on Monday, November 13.

Her jury trial was scheduled February 20, and her bail was set at $7,500 by corporate surety bond or $750 cash.

A cash bond was entered for her release on Monday, November 20.

A driver who allegedly left the scene of a car crash on Sunday night, November 19, now faces a misdemeanor charge of failure to stop.

William B. Prostler, 38, is apparently homeless and lives in the 2000 Chrysler Voyager mini-van he was driving just before 8 p.m. on North Main Street Road. Tonya A. Maxwell, 48, Scottsburg, told Deputy Joe Baker that she was driving south on the county road in her 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee with the green mini-van in front of her.

She said the van lost its right front tire, and her Jeep ran over it, causing damage to her vehicle.

Maxwell said she call 9-1-1 to report the accident and then pulled up beside the disabled van and told Prostler to talk to her. She said she told him she had contacted the police and needed him to stay at the scene.

Instead, Prostler reportedly told the woman that he wasn’t going to stay and that he needed to get the van to a motel. He drove off, though the van had only a rim. Maxwell remained at the scene and provided Prostler’s license plate number.

Property damage was estimated at up to $5,000 by Deputy Baker.

Prostler was found still headed south on Main Street. The rim had caused some damage to the road surface, noted the arresting officer, Deputy J.R. Ward. His van was impounded.

The suspect was taken to the local jail and incarcerated. The misdemeanor was filed that Monday, and Prostler had his initial court hearing that day.

A bench trial was scheduled for January 23, with Prostler being freed on his own recognizance with the condition that he not drive a vehicle.
