On Thursday, May 11, the Indiana State Police responded to a report of deceased person at a residence on County Road 500 South, just north of Crothersville, Indiana. During the course of the investigation, a Crothersville woman was arrested for Obstruction of Justice.

The investigation, being conducted by Indiana State Police Detectives, began around 10:00 am, when troopers were called to the address of 10806 East County Road 500 South after a family member found Clarence Howard, age 51, deceased inside the home. During the course of the investigation, detectives learned that Mattie Kendall, age 26, Crothersville, IN altered the scene and left residence before detectives could speak with her.

Kendall was later found to be walking along I-65 near Crothersville. After speaking with detectives, Kendall was arrested on a charge of Obstruction of Justice, a Level 6 Felony. She was transported to the Jackson County Jail to await her initial court appearance in the Jackson County Circuit Court.

An autopsy was conducted on Clarence Howard. The autopsy and toxicology results are pending at this time for final determination of cause of death. Foul play is not suspected in his death at this time.

Pancakes and sausage will sizzle this morning (Saturday) and fish will be fried at the Jennings Township Volunteer Fire Department in downtown as part of the firemen’s annual WHAS Crusade for Children auction.

The day begins with an all-you-can-eat pancake breakfast from 6 to 10 a.m. at department headquarters. The menu includes pancakes, sausage, bacon, milk, orange juice and coffee.

The price of the breakfast is a donation to the Crusade for Children, the fund-raiser which benefits sick and developmentally-disabled children throughout Kentuckiana. All dollars raised in Scott County come back in the form of grants to agencies helping youngsters.

The fish fry begins at 10 a.m. and won’t end at the firehouse until 8 p.m. Cost for a dinner of a fish sandwich, chips, baked beans, cole slaw and a drink is $7. They’ll also have tenderloin sandwiches and chicken strips available.

The crowd at this year’s fifth annual Crusade auction, which starts at 6 p.m., will be competing for several nice trips, including to Las Vegas and the gambling resort in Tunica, Ms.

Firemen have a raffle, too, for a cash pot of $500. Tickets are $5 each and can be obtained from any JTVFD fireman or bought today at the firehouse. The winner will be drawn during the auction. A 50/50 drawing is also scheduled, and the firemen have a couple of other raffles scheduled as well.

All proceeds today will be donated to the 2017 WHAS Crusade for Children.

The Jennings Township firehouse is located just west of Austin City Hall at the corner of West Main (State Road 256) and North Second Street. Parking will be available around the facility as well as at City Hall and elsewhere within easy walking distance.

During his professional career, Allen Donahue was as a familiar a figure in and around Scott County as Santa Claus.

Nearly anything any farmer needed to raise a good crop could be obtained at the old W.R. Grace Fertilizer Company on State Road 56 West in Scottsburg, where Donahue worked for some 41 years. Donahue was a specialist in his field before the term was established.

Donahue, 81, died on Tuesday, May 9, at Hampton Oaks Health Campus in Scottsburg.

Son of the late Loren and Therma Everhart Donahue, Allen was born in Scottsburg and lived his entire life in the community he served.

Teaming up with a “gang” of good buddies, he helped direct the Scott County Fair for several years. He also served as plant manager of Crop Production Services and was on the board of directors of Stucker Fork Water Utility for 17 years. He was a strong supporter of the Scottsburg FFA and Scott County 4-H and county sports teams.

He enjoyed hunting and riding and was an integral member of the Scott County Sheriff’s Posse, again for years.

Oh my, could that man spin a story and pull a joke! He was a big man and a big presence in his hometown. Allen truly believed in giving back to his community, both in dollars and sweat.

He follows his beloved wife Alice, who died December 22, 2016, his sister, Juanita Rose, and his parents.

Survivors include two sons, Lonnie and wife Alfreda and Andy; a daughter, Pat Bates and husband Dan of Greenville; a sister, Myrtle Boggess of Nicholasville, Ky.; three grandchildren, Eliza Donahue, Aaron Bates and Torrie Marvin and husband Blake; and two great-grandsons, Landon Donahue and Evan Marvin.

Following a night of calling on Thursday, May 11, the funeral was conducted on Friday morning, May 12, all at the Collins Funeral Home in Scottsburg. The Rev. Kenny Rose officiated.

Burial was in Scottsburg Cemetery.

Memorial gifts may be arranged through the funeral home staff to benefit Scottsburg FFA.
