Barger loses bid to serve in Scott County Council seat to former councilman PDF Print E-mail

A bid was lost Wednesday evening, January 25, by a political outsider to serve the remaining term of a Scott County Councilman who resigned.

Jody Barger of Austin took his defeat calmly, leaving the gathering of Democrat Party Central Committee people and party chairman Chuck Sebastian immediately after the vote’s results were announced.

“It’s all right. I could tell how it was going to come out,” stated Barger.

He lost to former county councilman Donnie Richie, who had held the seat before Raleigh Campbell Jr. was elected. Campbell now serves as chief deputy in the Prosecutor’s Office and so had to resign after finishing two years of his four-year term.

Each man was allowed to talk to those attending the caucus, citing their experience and beliefs. Each talked for a little over five minutes.

Only precinct committee people from four Austin districts could vote in this caucus. From the 3-1 vote result, it could be determined that Don Campbell, Greg Goodin and Jessica Stigdon Konkler voted for Richie. Barger’s mother, Pam Barger, voted for her son to win the position.

Goodin had just been appointed to serve as a precinct committeeman by Sebastian. The party chairman reportedly took that action after “firing” Jerry Buchanan from the post recently. Buchanan serves as county coroner, and, in the November general election, attracted the highest vote total of all candidates running.

Only four people waited outside the building where the caucus was being held. The public and press were not allowed into the party activity that evening. A large, hand-printed sign was taped to the building’s door barring all but the Central Committee, district advisor Adam Dickey and other participating officials.

Brother of man who died from ruptured colon sues county for ‘wrongful death’ PDF Print E-mail

The brother of a man who died in January, 2015, has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the Sheriff’s Department, Scott County EMS and the county.

Samuel E. Pate filed the civil suit on January 13, three days before the two-year time limit to file such suits expired. He and the estate of his late brother, Larry Randall Pate, are being represented by a North Vernon attorney.

The complaint stated that Larry Pate called 9-1-1 at 7:35 a.m. on January 14, 2015, for help. The lawsuit said he was in “…severe medical distress…” at the time of the call. The sick man talked to a dispatcher for a little over five minutes, but the complaint says that the dispatcher “…did not respond appropriately in the context of the telephone call.”

Larry Pate made a second 9-1-1 call at 7:43 a.m. and talked to the same dispatcher for just over a minute. Three deputies were dispatched to the man’s home to investigate the nature of his emergency.

“It is the plaintiff’s belief that the deputies did not properly investigate,” the lawsuit states. The report issued, it says, indicated that the call was a false alarm. The officers “…left the scene without ever physically coming into contact with (Larry Pate)…” the document advises, leaving by 8:04 a.m.

Around 11:30 a.m., a family member found Larry Pate nearly unresponsive at his home. Scott County EMS was summoned and transported him to Scott Memorial Hospital. He was later air-lifted to Norton Hospital in Louisville. Pate died two days later.

The lawsuit is requesting “…reasonable monetary damages including funds to cover medical bills, Pate’s pain and suffering and his wrongful death.” It also requests that the EMS and Sheriff’s Department be found negligent due to failure to “….properly supervise, train or otherwise handle the decision to dispatch correct medical personnel to Larry Pate’s residence and the deputies who ultimately responded to said residence.”

A jury trial is requested. Defendants have 25 days from the date the lawsuit was filed in which to respond.

Claims made in a civil suit reflect only one side of a disputed matter.

With Sectional beginning for most area teams on Tuesday, January 31, last-minute strategies to advance to finals are being discussed by coaches and players.

By the IHSAA’s class system, 96 teams will play in Class A; 99 in Class 2A; 101 in Class 3A; and 100 in Class 4A. In total, 393 games will be played in the 2017 girls’ tournament, including finals at Indianapolis.

Sectional tickets are now being sold at all teams’ high schools. Fans can buy the three-session bundle for $10; single session tickets will cost $6. Those prices are good for students and adults.

Of the area teams (Austin, Crothersville, Henryville, New Washington and Scottsburg), the Scottsburg Warriorettes are the only one which won’t see action on the first night of state sectionals. They’ll wait for the second night at the Corydon Central Sectional 30, February 1, to take on Brownstown.

Austin’s Lady Eagles are hosting their sectional. The Class 2A Sectional 45 will be played at the Harold Rigel Memorial Gym, where the high school’s boys’ team plays. New Washington in Clark County is also hosting its sectional for Class A teams, thanks to its win of its sectional last year.

The Lady Eagles were also sectional champions last winter and so won not only the title but hosting duties, advised Keith Henderson, Austin High School Vice Principal and Athletic Director.

Henderson said AHS ticket sales will continue through the second night of that tournament, Friday, February 3.

When a pair of games is played on the same night, action will begin at 6 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Final games on February 4 will start at 7 p.m. Here’s how the area sectional action will take place:
