    Three convicted people learned their fates during sentencings in separate criminal cases conducted on Tuesday, November 3, in Scott Circuit Court.
    Jason D. Arbuckle, 35, Lexington, received the longest sentence. His prison stay will be 30 years for dealing in methamphetamine, a Class A felony.
    Arbuckle may be remembered as the defendant who didn't show up for his own trial on that charge this past August. He was arrested and charged with the felony dealing count in June, 2006, after selling the illegal meth to a female undercover officer with the Indiana State Police. His trial was the first in Scott County held in absentia, without the defendant present. The jury quickly found that Arbuckle was guilty of the charge on August 5. He was located and arrested on August 13. A mental examination was requested by Arbuckle at the end of that month. That was done and submitted to the court in September.

    Members of the Scott County Board of Zoning Appeals (BZA) held an unusually long hearing on October 14 so that those concerned about a Jeffersonville-based religious group's plans for development at the old Marysville Pay Lake property could voice their opinions.
    Joseph Mullen is the construction manager for Voice of God Recordings Inc., the religious group which wants to develop the area into a campground and overnight facility for its members and its youth. Mullen and Daniel Evans, Voice of God public relations officer, presented those plans before the BZA and some 20 people that evening. BZA members present included chairman Gary Green, Sandee Owens, Dale Hobbs and Don Wilkerson. Also present was Area Plan Commission Director Jamie Knowles.
    The group wanted a Conditional Use Variance (CUV) to allow the development of a Christian retreat at the lake, located on South Pleasant Ridge Road in Lexington Township. Mullen said Voice of God is a missionary group which operates worldwide to enrich people with the Christian experience as well as provide counseling and guidance. Voice of God is also in the recording and publishing business. The group's website offers more information on the business and church activities.
