    Residents of Scott County and in surrounding counties in Southern Indiana who want to apply for an Indiana Firearms Permit can now start that process by using their home computers.
    Scott County law enforcement agencies will now accept gun permit applications via computer which gun owners are urged to begin by visiting the website at www.in.gov/isp before they visit a police department. At that website, applicants must follow the link under the Firearms Licensing tab.
    The process is easy. Each applicant can now begin his application from home by using an Internet-connected computer. To continue the application process, the applicant then visits his local police department or sheriff's department, depending on his legal address. Local and county police agencies have access to the licensing process and are now able to complete the process. They will access the application on-line and obtain fingerprints, fees and all signatures required. Additionally, law enforcement agencies can provide feedback on the status of applications or existing permits through the new system.

Couple leads police on chase after failing to stop in Austin PDF Print E-mail

        An Austin couple who allegedly tried to outrun police on Wednesday, May 6, entered not guilty pleas to charges filed against them in Scott Superior Court.
        Michael S. Kemper, 28, and his wife, Tammy Kemper, 31, were charged after purportedly being involved in an incident of vandalism and fleeing in the early morning hours of May 6.
        According to the probable cause affidavit prepared by Austin Patrolman Robert Gudgel, the officer located the couple as he was traveling to investigate a report of vehicle vandalism that had occurred shortly after 3 a.m. in the Spicertown section of Austin. The dispatch had described a dark-colored Dodge Caravan with a driver side brake light out having been involved in vandalism. Reportedly, Michael Kemper had broken front and rear windows and a rear hatch window in a parked Chevy Trailblazer near Spicer Drive.
        Spotting a mini-van answering the description going north on Dowling Drive, the officer turned on his emergency lights and siren and pursued the van as it turned westbound onto State Road 256. He said he followed it, speed at times reaching 90 mph. It then turned north onto State Road 39 and then east onto County Road 600 South in Jackson County. Speeds at that time were around 60 mph, the officer noted.
        Eventually, the mini-van was stopped by Crothersville Police Chief Vurlin McIntosh. Chief McIntosh had heard dispatches on the pursuit and blocked the county road with his patrol car. The van stopped about 30 feet from the police vehicle, and Michael Kemper reportedly got out clutching the couple's 15-month-old child in his arms, running into a nearby woods.

    The Englishton Park Presbyterian Ministries and Three Spring’s Inc. Saturday, May 16 event on the Englishton Park Campus continues to grow in the planning for that day.
    Many local merchants have donated items to be included in a Silent Auction that will be held throughout that day, including Gift Certificates from Anthony’s, Gilley’s Automatic Car Wash, Goin’ Postal, Jeeves and Company, Lickety Split Ice Cream, and Rough Edges “what-not shop”.
    In addition to these Gift Certificates, there have been four merchants that have donated products for the auction, including CVS; a fabric cooler and a bag of charcoal, Hancock’s Drugstore; a scented candle, Scott’s Hardware; a Hummingbird Feeder with nectar and Scottsburg Stoneware; a heart shaped decorative bowl.
    These Certificates and Gifts are much appreciated, as the funds generated from their sale in the auction will be used to help offset costs of the Open House, with any excess funds going toward expenses of the Englishton Park Summer Youth Program, entering it’s 41st year. The Summer Camp staff reports in on June 1st and the first of four groups of children (30 –36 youth per group) arrive on June 14.
    Previous articles have mentioned “Free Hotdogs, Chips and Iced Tea or Lemonade to the first 100 people.” The way that will work will be the first 100 will be given a lunch ticket as they enter the parking area that will be presented when they pick up their light lunch.
    Regarding the parking and transportation, the main parking will be at the top of the hill on the South Drive; that is Parker Lane, off Highway 203 just North of Lexington. Handicapped people will be allowed to park in parking areas close to the activities until the crowds grow into a situation where it may not be safe for vehicular traffic. Golf carts will be used for personal handicap transportation when the other handicapped parking areas are closed or inaccessible.
