    After experiencing an up-and-down season with a decidedly winning season record of 12-5 (as of February 12), the Austin Eagles under Coach Mike Deaton are looking at a tough boys' 2A sectional in Paoli.
    Brownstown's Braves are the heavies in this sectional, having compiled a perfect season and ranked no. 1 in 2A teams in the state. Austin is ranked 11th, not bad for the teams the boys have faced this season.
    “We've got a very competitive sectional ahead of us. Eastern's playing well, and Providence played New Albany well recently. In fact, you look at all of the teams in this sectional and they're all pretty equal with Brownstown maybe a step or two ahead,” advised Coach Deaton.
    The teams in this sectional include Paoli, Austin, Eastern, Clarksville, Providence, Brownstown and West Washington. The boys' draw took place on Sunday, February 21.

    Four more horses, all reportedly suffering from neglect, were seized recently by the Scott County Sheriff’s Department, and three of the group are now happily recovering at Second Chance Ranch.
    “The three we were able to save are doing very well. We had to put down the mare that had cancer on February 1. She was really suffering,” advised Jenny McIntosh. Jenny and husband Joe operate Second Chance Ranch, using a lot of their own money to bring neglected animals back to health.

Thieves are again targeting AC/heating units in county PDF Print E-mail

        The trend to steal parts or whole climate control units from local businesses and county churches is again growing steadily in Scott County.
        “We are watching the more remote country churches and other buildings as best we can, but our deputies and reserves can only be in so many places. Thieves know this, so the air conditioning and heat pump units are again being 'hit' around the county,” advised Sheriff John Lizenby.
        Several homes, businesses and churches have fallen victim to unscrupulous criminals who normally tear apart the units and take the relatively small quantities of copper coil out of them. Now, the Sheriff's Department has added the old Zimmerman building at State Road 356 and U.S. Highway 31 South and Emmanuel Baptist Church to its list of latest sites of such thefts. Noted Sheriff Lizenby, “Sometimes, the amount of work that went into the theft was probably worth more than what these people can get selling the copper as salvage. It's amazing they'd invest that much effort.”

    A Borden woman who allegedly admitted to Indiana State troopers that she was the driver who purportedly started a chain reaction accident that led to the death of two Scott County residents on December 13 now faces 13 criminal charges in the case.
    All of the charges against Jennifer P. Just, 34, were filed in Scott Superior Court. They range from Class B felonies of operation of a motor vehicle causing death with a controlled substance in blood to Class D felonies of operation of a motor vehicle with a controlled substance in blood causing serious bodily injury.
    James and Thelma Jewell of Austin died as the result of Just's alleged actions that sunny Sunday afternoon. Around 1 p.m., the Jewells were driving north on I-65 and were a few miles south of the Austin exit when their silver 2003 Toyota Tacoma pickup truck was struck in the rear by a 1996 Ford Ranger pickup purportedly driven by Just.

Scottsburg officials consider buying old industrial building for Electric Department PDF Print E-mail

    Scottsburg officials are considering making a bid on a vacant factory building on U.S. Highway 31 South.        The old Jay Packaging building has an office section connected to a large warehouse-type structure. The company for which the complex was originally built in the 1980s withdrew last year to its East Coast plant after experiencing several years of dwindling work in the thermo-form packaging industry.
    In looking at the building, Mayor Bill Graham said during the January 12 Scottsburg Board of Works and Public Safety that it might do very well for the city's electric department and its growing wireless service, Citizens Communications Corporation Broadband (c3bb.com).
    Currently, the Electric Department is housed on Bond Street in a residential area. That facility is land-locked, advised Jim Binkley, Electric Department Superintendent. “There's no place for us to go if we need more room,” he said during the meeting. Citizens Communications' vehicles and equipment are housed both at the Electric Department and the Street Department with its office at City Hall.
