As holidays approach, don’t forget to check out Cat Adoption facility PDF Print E-mail

    It’s that time of the year again, when everyone is thinking about the holidays and are beginning to get into that mood to give to friends, family and others in need.
    One area people may not be aware of that usually gets overlooked is the felines of Scott County.
Scott County has a new Cat Adoption Facility located at 1202 South Taylor Mill Road in Scottsburg, just off of State Road 56 and off South Boatman Road.
    Cats and kittens may be the special gift for your family.
    Cats that are adopted through the facility can be done so at $45 which includes the spay/neuter, rabies, vaccinations, worming, feline leukemia/fiv combination testing and flea treatment. All the cats/kittens at the center are well socialized. These cats are adopted to be inside only cats and may be taken home the day of adoption.
    Coming to the facility with the cats/kittens gives a wonderful opportunity to learn the individual personalities of the cats and help determine which will fit best in the adopter’s home.
    The cats/kittens come directly from the animal shelter. None are accepted at this location. The Scott County Humane’s Society’s mission is to aid the Scott County Animal Sehtler and this facility acts as housing for many very nice cats that have run out of time at the Scott County Animal Shelter. The pets at this adoption center are hand-selected from the many homeless cats that are trapped or turned in. The facility is only able to accommodate a limited number of cats so as one is adopted form this location, they are able to select another to take its place.
Christmas is around the corner and donations of dry cat food, litter, cleaning supplies and cat toys are always needed. Tax deductible financial donations are also badly needed to help purchase vaccine and health supplies for the cats. Medical supplies are very expensive and absolutely necessary to keep the pets healthy until they find their new homes. Volunteers are always needed to keep the many phases of the humane society operating.
    Hours of operation are from 4 to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 1 to 3 p.m. on Saturday.
    For more information please call 752-7500 and leave message. For more information visit the website at www.hsscottcountyin.com

    On the return debut of Indiana hall of fame coach Donna Cheatham at Scottsburg, the atmosphere in Meyer Gym was electric. The all time winningness coach in IHSSA girls’ basketball history returned to the place where she won the 1989 state championship. Her new Warriorettes team took on the visiting Jennings County Lady Panthers and added to Cheatham’s wins with a 59-30 blowout on Friday, November 13..
    The game started off great for the Warriorettes as Symantha Norton scored on the very first possession, giving them a quick 2-0 lead and adding more excitement to the already eccentric crowd. Scottsburg then picked it up on the other end of the court playing pressure defense and holding the Lady Panthers to only four points in the quarter. However, after a three pointer and a quick steal by Courtney Means, the Warriorettes began to cool off. Then Scottsburg went on a 6-1 run late to extend their lead to 11-4 at the end of the quarter.

    Jason Frederick Uhlenbrock, 29, Austin, is charged with a count of murder and attempted murder in the death of Robin L. Everitt, 59, and the wounding of family friend Terry Carr. He allegedly grabbed a handgun laying on a counter at the Everitt home on Bogardus Road and emptied the magazine of the Sig Sauer 9mm gun during the incident. The shootings occurred shortly after 4 p.m.
    From information gathered, Uhlenbrock apparently bicycled to the house from his apartment on U.S. Highway 31 North in Austin to request use of a shotgun. Everitt reportedly refused his stepson's request. Prior to Uhlenbrock's visit, Robin Everitt and his wife, also named Robin, were entertaining a few friends, playing and discussing music. One of those friends, Terry Carr, was also allegedly shot in the abdomen by Uhlenbrock, as Carr sat on a sofa in the couple's living room.
