    Charges have been filed against an Austin woman in connection with incidents of checks allegedly forged on a fictitious account at a local banking institution.
    Tammy Sue Arevalos also known as Tammy Sue Combs, 38, is the purported perpetrator of the checks, which were presented at two county grocery stores. The suspect was apparently successful in “passing” one of the checks, from what Austin Patrolman Shawn Hurt learned on June 24. Another check that Arevalos/Combs had tried to cash at a Scottsburg store had been retained by the store but not cashed.
    The Scottsburg incident had been investigated by Lt. Richey L. Barton of that city's police department. He was dispatched on June 24 to the grocery store and was told by personnel there that the woman had left the store while the check was being processed by store personnel. Arevalos/Combs had also reportedly left an ID card there.
    According to what the officers learned, Arevalos/Combs had apparently gotten some blank checks, known as “starter” checks which are normally given to people who have just established accounts. She had purportedly typed her name and address on the checks and numbered them. Lt. Barton learned from the bank that the woman did not have an account there.

    An Austin man now faces 12 criminal charges filed in Scott Circuit Court, all connected to alleged drug dealing at his residence.
    James D. Haney, 50, was charged Monday, July 6, with seven Class B and C felony counts of dealing in a Schedule I, II or II controlled substance as well as two counts of dealing in a Schedule IV controlled substance, one misdemeanor count of dealing marijuana and Class D felony counts of maintaining a common nuisance and possession of paraphernalia.
    Haney was taken into custody on Thursday evening, July 2, by Major/Detective Lonnie Noble and Reserve Detective Robert Hardin after they and other Austin officers served a search warrant at the Haney household on Factory Drive.
    Listed as seized evidence was a number of Endocet, Lorcet, Lortab, Xanax, Methadone and Oxycodone tablets. Also discovered in the residence were two syringes and several pill cutters as well as $1,469 in currency. A total of $19 of that amount was identified by Det. Noble as marked enforcement aid monies used in previous “controlled” buys from Haney, the officer noted.
    The charges against Haney were prepared and an initial court hearing for him was prepared by Prosecutor Jason Mount for Tuesday, July 7. There will be charges filed against several other individuals as well, most for visiting a common nuisance, according to information received.
    Bail for Haney was set at $75,000 corporate surety or full cash.

    The 2009 Miss Scott County Fair Queen is a tall, beautiful brunette who enjoyed herself thoroughly at the pageant conducted at Scottsburg High School's McClain Hall on Sunday evening, July 12.
    “Oh, wow! This is great!” exclaimed Queen Morgan Ashley Means as she waved to her family and friends in the audience. She accepted her crown and sash, a scepter and an armful of red roses from 2008 Miss Scott County Fair Queen Brooklyn Young, one of the first to congratulate the jubilant new Queen.
    The stage was graced by the presence of 11 lovely gowned young ladies that evening. Hostess Brittany Banister, a member of the sponsoring Pilot Club of Scott County, first announced the contestants' selection of the 2009 Miss Congeniality winner. That honor went to Tia Monique Deaton. 2009 Fair Princess was announced next, and that title was given to Lisann Renee Goodin.
    Tension mounted as the final announcement came and, to judge from her expression when her name was announced, Morgan was overwhelmingly surprised as Queen Brooklyn approached her with her new regalia.
    Queen Morgan is the 18-year-old daughter of Leslie and Kevin Means of Scottsburg. Her sponsor in the competition was the Phi Beta Psi Sorority chapter of Scottsburg.
    Morgan is a spring graduate of  Scottsburg High School and has plenty of hobbies, including playing basketball, running track, swimming and “hanging out” with friends. She loves being with her family and friends, enjoying quality time.

    Judges had a difficult time selecting the 2009 Little Miss and Little Master of Scott County at the competition conducted Sunday, July 12, in McClain Hall at Scottsburg High School.
    Six fairly well-behaved young men were in the Little Master competition, while 12 of the prettiest little girls were led on stage by 2008 Miss Scott County Fair Queen Brooklyn Young.
    The contest was filled with chuckles and claps of approval and support by proud family members and friends of the four-, five- and six-year-olds entered in the contest. This year, the contest was held after the 2009 Miss Scott County Fair Queen pageant, and organizers were the ladies of the Pilot Club of Scott County.
    After each child was interviewed by emcee Brittany Banister, judges tackled the task of selecting the new Little Miss and Master as well as runners-up for both titles.
    Kailee Danielle Campbell, a sweet little blonde and the six-year-old daughter of Kim Jones and Josh Campbell, received the Little Miss title, while Bentley Noah McCrady, a handsome lad of four and son of Erica McCrady, was selected as the Little Master.
    Their runners-up were Kyleigh Renee Stover, 4, daughter of Melanie and Denny Robbins and Mark Stover, and Wyatt Scott Zellers, 4, son of Carla and Scott Zellers.

Forever Tree Society program provides opportunity to keep someone’s memory alive PDF Print E-mail

    When Pat Bridge of Scottsburg heard about the new Forever Tree Society program at the Scott County Community Foundation, she immediately knew she wanted to do something in memory of her parents, Laurence and Myrtle Bridge.
    They were lifelong residents and farmers in Johnson Township, Scott County. Myrtle was a charter member of the Scott Memorial Hospital Guild and Laurence was a committee member of the Agriculture Stabilization Office for many years.
    They were both members and very active in the Pisgah Methodist Church. “Honest, family oriented, hardworking and Christians,” says Pam Mosley, Pat’s only child and Laurence and Myrtle’s only grandchild.
    After learning more information about the Forever Tree Society, Pat decided to establish the Laurence and Myrtle Bridge Memorial Fund. She likes the concept that because of the unrestricted gift, the board can decide where the money is best needed. She was also able to participate in the matching funds program that the Foundation Board of Directors offered as an incentive to donors. Through Sept. 30, the Foundation is offering $25,000 in matching funds for the program.
