    The funds they raised benefit the Community Care Fund of the United Way, which supports numerous health and human service programs and organizations in Scott County.
    The first place team, which scored 15 under par, was Scott Memorial Hospital’s team of James Vaughn, Tisha Vaughn, Jason Vaughn and Kenny Brown. They took top honors with a combined score of 55. In second place were Tim Edwards, Jim Felix, Jeff West and Eric Meyers, members of the Wal-Mart Distribution Center team. They scored a 58.

??  ?    The quintessential end to a long summer is being planned by organizers of the annual Pig Roast in the Park, set
for Friday and Saturday, August 8 and 9, in Beechwood Park in Scottsburg.
    Pig Roast in the Park is a festival that offers a casual, enjoyable experience to those who visit. There will be booths
offering arts and crafts and festival-type fare. Plenty of tournaments are scheduled to start that Friday in softball,
horseshoes, volleyball and tennis. Games for children are slated as well. A gospel sing is set for that Friday night,
while Saturday will offer the annual Scott County American Idol competition as well as hog-calling and watermelon
eating contests. A euchre tournament is also scheduled on Saturday for the public’s enjoyment.
    Of course, folks will come to buy pulled pork barbecue dinners on August 9, and everyone will be able to buy
chances throughout the Pig Roast in the Park to win the miniature Kids House log cabin that appeals to both
children and adults and is now on display at the Scottsburg Wal-Mart Super Center. Tickets are one for $2; three for
$5; eight for $10; and 20 for $20.

?Washington County woman is latest fatality in I-65 cross-over accident PDF Print E-mail

???    For the second time this year, emergency vehicles responded to calls of a fatal accident on Interstate 65 between Scottsburg and Austin that involved a vehicle crossing the grassy median and striking a semi-tractor-trailer.
    This time, the mishap occurred just south of the Austin interchange late Monday morning, July 21. A woman motorist, identified as Deborah Gunn, 55, Pekin, was headed south on I-65 on a clear morning around 11:45 a.m. when her silver-colored 1996 Ford Taurus suddenly crossed the median and struck the left rear tandems of a northbound semi-tractor operated by Kenneth J. Yeadon, 55, Mooresville.
    Yeadon, who was not injured in the accident, apparently saw the car crossing and slowed and then tried to avoid contact by going nearly off the road. Nothing worked; the car went under the rear trailer and disintegrated as the truck continued north.
