?    A young man with red hair is being sought by the Scott County Sheriff’s Department as the main suspect in a forgery/receiving stolen property case after he allegedly cashed stolen checks at a Scottsburg gas station.
    In talking to the station clerk who had accepted the checks from the suspect, Reserve Deputy Sheriff Bobby Thompson said the clerk noted that the red-haired man offered two checks in the amount of $200 and $375. Both were drawn on another man’s bank account and were reportedly signed by that party. Both were made out to what appeared to be a woman with the first name of Priscilla.
    However, the young man cashing the checks offered identification listing him as Priscilla. The driver license the young man had, the clerk recalled, had the young man’s photo on it. The clerk remembered the incident because, as he told his customer,  “Priscilla was an unusual name for a male.”
    The investigation of the two checks occurred in September by the Sheriff’s Department and  revealed that a woman whose first name was Priscilla had had her purse stolen from her car around the end of August. The purse contained her driver license and credit cards.
    On November 13, a local bank called, reporting that a teller had been approached by a young man with red hair who wanted to cash a check from a couple’s account. Becoming suspicious, the teller called the woman listed on the check, and learned it was a stolen check. She returned to the young man and asked for identification. Instead, the young man fled the bank, leaving the check behind.
    A warrant for a suspect has been issued based on three counts of Class C forgery and three counts of Class D receiving stolen property, all filed in Scott Circuit Court on December 23.

Monday, 22 December 2008 00:00
???    True to their word, Austin Mayor Doug Campbell and the City Council are creating a Disposal Center that will be open two days each month to accept large objects from Austin residents.
    Any resident of Austin may use the new service at no extra charge. The Council and Mayor offered the idea of allowing people to haul large items to a central location when they overhauled the city’s trash collection system earlier this year. The ordinance creating the new system, whereby most residents will be charged $10 per month for trash pick-up, will go into effect on Monday, December 29. The new charge will be listed on residents’ sewer bills starting in January.

?Warriors end win drought in series against Brownstown PDF Print E-mail

???    It had been eight years since the Scottsburg Warriors beat the Brownstown Braves.
    Despite having the game at home this season, the Braves were still favorites to come away victorious.  Critics expected the one two punch of Blaze Ayers and Taylor Wischmeier to dominate on the boards, as well as in the paint.
    They did out-rebound the Warriors 31 to 28, but the advantage on the boards was no match for the heart and hustle of Scottsburg on Friday, December 12.
    The game was tight from start to finish, neither team leading by more than 7 points. At halftime, the score was 27-25 in favor of the Braves, but Scottsburg came out with increased intensity to combat the home team’s size and athletic advantage.
    As Brownstown extended to a two-possession game, the Warriors made a run to keep it close. With three minutes left in the fourth quarter, Ayers flushed a breakaway dunk to go ahead 6 points and silence the crowd in the Pressure Cooker.
    At the moment that things seemed bleakest, the Warriors turned their game up a notch.  They went on a 7-0 run to take the lead and did not look back from there.
    Scottsburg held the lead in a game that came down to fundamentals and ball movement, winning by a score of 56-52. Matt Bridgewater led the Warriors in scoring again with 16, several of which came on offensive rebounds. Wischmeier had a good night with 20, but Ayers only had 9.
