    A Scottsburg man was taken into custody for questioning and then arrested by New York State officers on a charge of welfare fraud.
    Kevin C. Lewis, 26, appeared in Scott Superior Court on Monday, August 17, on charges of battery and disorderly conduct stemming from a separate matter. He pleaded guilty to the disorderly conduct charge, and the battery charge was dismissed through a plea agreement. Lewis was sentenced to 180 days in jail, 176 of which were suspended on supervised probation. He was also given credit for two days previously served.
    That wasn't the end of his legal problems, however. After that matter was handled in the local court, he was transported to the Indiana State Police post at Sellersburg. There, he was questioned by two detectives from New York State. One of the officers was a state policeman while the other was a detective with the Town of Wallkill Police Department.
    According to Sgt. Jerry Goodin, Public Information Officer with the ISP Sellersburg post, detectives with the post became aware last week that Lewis was wanted on the welfare fraud charge. They were contacted by NY State officers, who had been searching for Lewis and recently learned that he was in the Scott County area.
    Lewis was incarcerated in the Clark County Jail in Jeffersonville while he awaited extradition back to New York State.

    A special meeting of the Scott County Area Plan Commission (APC) has been scheduled for 6 p.m. on Wednesday, August 26, at the Courthouse.
    At this meeting, members of the APC will determine if a development plan submitted by Liberty Green Renewables L.LC. meets their approval. If approval of the plan is given, development of the proposed biomass-energy plant can go forward.
    Liberty Green partners have been working with Scottsburg officials and the Scott County Economic Development Corporation for several months. The site for the proposed plant is on some 44 acres accessed by U.S. Highway 31 South and just north of the city's newest water tower.
    Larry Ott and Terrance “Terry” Naulty, both partners in the venture, represented Liberty Green at both the Scott County Board of Zoning (BZA) appeals and the APC meeting that followed on Wednesday, August 12.
They offered an attractive package, explaining that the local plant will be called the Scottsburg Renewable Energy Center and will be similar to a plant they are developing in Crawford County near Milltown. Once up and working, the Scottsburg center will generate enough electrical power for about 20,000 homes by burning wood chips that will in turn heat water, changing it to steam to power a turbine. Liberty Green will then sell electricity generated on the Midwest power grid.
