    Many people make their final donations of the calendar year in December. Those considering such gifts are asked to add the Scott County Heritage Center and Museum to their lists.
    The museum is a privately-funded facility and relies heavily on charitable contributions to pay operating expenses. As its board begins to repay the USDA Rural Development loan which paid for upstairs renovation, private contributions are more important than ever to the museum's future.
    Preservation Alliance Inc. (PAI) is the organization which operates the museum. PAI is a certified 501(c)3, not-for-profit organization, so donations are tax-deductible.

    Five people now face felony charges in Scott Circuit Court based on their presence at an alleged, illegal drug lab set up to manufacture methamphetamine.
    The meth lab was the second to be discovered and dismantled in Austin within a six-day period in December.
    Suspects now facing charges include Kenny Albertson, 34; Tisha Houchens, 29; Brandon Smith, 32; Jennifer Smith, 31; and Elvis Vest, 25. Albertson, Houchens and the Smiths all listed their address as 1271 West Booe Road, Austin. Vest is a resident of East Firetown Road, Salem, according to court records.
    The case started when Scottsburg Patrolman Troy Ford received a tip about possible criminal activity on W. Booe Rd. Based on the information, he obtained a search warrant. On December 18, Ptl. Ford, Austin Lt. Shawn Hurt and Patrolman Robert Gudgel and Deputy Jeremy Arnold of the Sheriff's Department went to the residence along with two other Austin reserve officers, Daryl Hickman and Chris Everhart, to serve the warrant.

Several matters rescheduled for later action by Austin City Councilmen PDF Print E-mail

    A couple of issues facing Austin City Councilmen on December 8 were tabled and rescheduled for the Council's end-of-year meeting, which is now set for Tuesday, December 29.
    The city has been seeking CDL training for a couple of its employees in its Street and Sanitation Department. A quote of $3,200 was received in November but was taken under advisement.
    When employees have their CDLs, they are more valuable to the city because they are allowed to drive the larger trucks. They also increase their own take-home pay. Noted Councilman Richie Buchanan, “I like the scaled pay on (this) certification. That gives them an incentive to get their CDL. At the same time, they need a good opportunity to pass the test.”
    Speaking of pay, Mayor Doug Campbell asked the Council, “What if they go through the training we provide and still don't get their CDL? Are there any repercussions?” No, the Council determined, except that, of course, the employee doesn't get the increase in pay such a certification would provide.

    Though the total was a little lower than what was collected in 2008, people in Scott County and surrounding areas certainly did their best to support the 2009 We Care to the tune of $70,351.50.
    Thanks to the many contributions of items for the annual auction and the efforts of scores of volunteers, We Care will be helping 1,582 children. Funds raised go to buy these youngsters new winter coats, shoes and other clothing. The average spent per child is $44.47.
    Most of the children being helped this year are in Scott School Districts 1 and 2. District 1 has 653 participating, while District 2 has 557.
    Other children receive help as well. There are 285 at Kids Place in Scottsburg that will receive warm clothing, a number that increased this year by 69 because of the need present in the county.
