?Recent accidents result in injuries, charges being filed against two individuals PDF Print E-mail

?    Recent vehicular accidents in Scott County have involved some injuries as well as some criminal charges being filed against people involved and an errant bed mattress.
    A most unusual accident, involving the mattress, occurred November 23 on U.S. Highway 31 South at Armory Drive in Scottsburg.
    Ervin E. Beswick, 70, Milton, Fl., was driving a 1995 Chevy S10 pickup on U.S. 31 when a mattress he was hauling in the bed of the truck flew out and landed on the highway.
    Marilyn J. Robbins, 37, Scottsburg stopped her 1995 Ford Thunderbird as did another vehicle, but a 2004 Hyndai operated by Jason T. Spicer, 22, Scottsburg, struck the T-bird as Robbins apparently attempted to go around the mattress but then braked.
    No one was hurt in the mishap, which caused approximately $10,000 in property damage. The accident was covered by Lt. Richey Barton with assistance from Patrolman Rodney Watts, both of the Scottsburg Police Department.

?    Speed limits on State Road 256 and U.S. Highway 31 in Austin were recently changed by workers with the Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT).
    The changes were necessary, according to INDOT, to “...conform to minimum standards set up by INDOT.” Changes on U.S. 31 affect a zone from VanCampen Road to the Jackson County line north of Austin. On S.R. 256, which serves as Main Street in the community, the area affected includes from the Jackson County line west of town to one mile east of its junction with U.S. 31.

?    Scott County deputies had their hands full early Saturday morning, December 6, investigating how a Scottsburg area man was both stabbed and shot at his home on County Line Road.
    Deputies Joe Johnson and Donald Campbell were dispatched to Scott Memorial Hospital’s ER in the early morning hours after a man was brought in bleeding from two wounds. Andrew McKee, 49, was brought to the hospital by relatives. He had sustained a lengthy stab wound to one arm, which was also injured due to a bullet wound. Apparently, during a fight at McKee’s home late on Friday night, December 5, McKee was also shot in the left arm. The bullet then exited the arm and entered his chest.

?Austin Alumni seeks donations to be matched by School District PDF Print E-mail
Written by Administrator   
Wednesday, 26 November 2008 00:00
?    This past May, the Austin Alumni Association established the Austin High School Alumni Scholarship Fund through the Community Foundation.
    The effort developed through the tremendous success of the Alumni Association over the past few years and the fact that the Scott County School District has committed to match dollar-for-dollar all funds raised up to $25,000.
    In cooperation with the school system, the Alumni association has extended the deadline for having contributions apply to the dollar-for- dollar match until December 31. Currently a total of $13,800 has been raised. The push to get to the $25,000 mark has already begun.
    Contributors should keep in mind donations are fully tax deductible. This, coupled with the matching funds, allows donors to have their contribution represent 2½ times their value to the fund.
    The Scholarship Fund is a permanent fund, meaning the actual value of the fund can never be withdrawn. Returns on the invested amount will be the only money made available each year for scholarships.
    Contributing to the Scholarship Fund is a chance for each donor to be part of a legacy that will live forever and continue to provide much-needed assistance for young people who wish to further their educations.
    Many alumni have made contributions to the Scholarship Fund a class effort, seeing how much they can collect as team effort. Two groups which have been particularly successful are the Classes of 1952 and 1961. Each are nearing the $1,000 mark. It is an excellent was of giving back to the community that has given so much.
    Potential donors with questions are welcome to contact the Community Foundation or any of the current officers of the Austin Alumni Association. Officers include Patrick Kilburn, president; Roy Lynn Schneck, vice president; Karen Payne, treasurer; and Ishmael White, secretary.
