The Scott County Christmas Assistance Program (Angel Tree) coordinator Madonna Amburgey Corbett is seeking monetary donations to help with the cost of rent to house all the equipment needed to operate the Angel Tree program. The Angel Tree Program has operated in Scott County under the supervision of Mrs. Corbett for 35 years, helping the families of Scott County during the Christmas season.

They are also looking for a permanent place to locate the program year-round. Volunteers will also use this space to work in from October 1 through January 1 each year. So the facility must include, electricity, water and sewer.

The Angel Program has no income, so they are looking for someone to donate a retail space that is not being used or some sort of building that can be used for this project.

Those wishing to help the Angel Tree program may do so by contact Madonna Corbett at 1-812-498-3137 or 1-812-752-4725.

A Scottsburg area couple has been ordered to appear in Scott Circuit Court on March 27 to answer to charges they have allowed their children to skip school.

According to the probable cause affidavit, the attendance of the three youngsters was reviewed by Scott School District 2 officials. The children’s attendance records were described as “substandard.”

Four letters regarding the problem were sent to Otis Bishop, 34, and Amanda Bishop, 36. The couple reportedly did not respond to any of the letters. They also did not attend a meeting scheduled by the Scott County Attendance Review Board in December so that the couple could talk to court and school officials and develop a plan to address the absences.

They were also warned that, if the children continued to miss school, the parents could be subjecting themselves to criminal prosecution.

According to the affidavit, all three children have continued to be absent.

Consequently, each parent has been charged with six counts of Class B misdemeanor violation of compulsory school attendance.
