    An Austin man now faces 12 criminal charges filed in Scott Circuit Court, all connected to alleged drug dealing at his residence.
    James D. Haney, 50, was charged Monday, July 6, with seven Class B and C felony counts of dealing in a Schedule I, II or II controlled substance as well as two counts of dealing in a Schedule IV controlled substance, one misdemeanor count of dealing marijuana and Class D felony counts of maintaining a common nuisance and possession of paraphernalia.
    Haney was taken into custody on Thursday evening, July 2, by Major/Detective Lonnie Noble and Reserve Detective Robert Hardin after they and other Austin officers served a search warrant at the Haney household on Factory Drive.
    Listed as seized evidence was a number of Endocet, Lorcet, Lortab, Xanax, Methadone and Oxycodone tablets. Also discovered in the residence were two syringes and several pill cutters as well as $1,469 in currency. A total of $19 of that amount was identified by Det. Noble as marked enforcement aid monies used in previous “controlled” buys from Haney, the officer noted.
    The charges against Haney were prepared and an initial court hearing for him was prepared by Prosecutor Jason Mount for Tuesday, July 7. There will be charges filed against several other individuals as well, most for visiting a common nuisance, according to information received.
    Bail for Haney was set at $75,000 corporate surety or full cash.

    The 2009 Miss Scott County Fair Queen is a tall, beautiful brunette who enjoyed herself thoroughly at the pageant conducted at Scottsburg High School's McClain Hall on Sunday evening, July 12.
    “Oh, wow! This is great!” exclaimed Queen Morgan Ashley Means as she waved to her family and friends in the audience. She accepted her crown and sash, a scepter and an armful of red roses from 2008 Miss Scott County Fair Queen Brooklyn Young, one of the first to congratulate the jubilant new Queen.
    The stage was graced by the presence of 11 lovely gowned young ladies that evening. Hostess Brittany Banister, a member of the sponsoring Pilot Club of Scott County, first announced the contestants' selection of the 2009 Miss Congeniality winner. That honor went to Tia Monique Deaton. 2009 Fair Princess was announced next, and that title was given to Lisann Renee Goodin.
    Tension mounted as the final announcement came and, to judge from her expression when her name was announced, Morgan was overwhelmingly surprised as Queen Brooklyn approached her with her new regalia.
    Queen Morgan is the 18-year-old daughter of Leslie and Kevin Means of Scottsburg. Her sponsor in the competition was the Phi Beta Psi Sorority chapter of Scottsburg.
    Morgan is a spring graduate of  Scottsburg High School and has plenty of hobbies, including playing basketball, running track, swimming and “hanging out” with friends. She loves being with her family and friends, enjoying quality time.

    Judges had a difficult time selecting the 2009 Little Miss and Little Master of Scott County at the competition conducted Sunday, July 12, in McClain Hall at Scottsburg High School.
    Six fairly well-behaved young men were in the Little Master competition, while 12 of the prettiest little girls were led on stage by 2008 Miss Scott County Fair Queen Brooklyn Young.
    The contest was filled with chuckles and claps of approval and support by proud family members and friends of the four-, five- and six-year-olds entered in the contest. This year, the contest was held after the 2009 Miss Scott County Fair Queen pageant, and organizers were the ladies of the Pilot Club of Scott County.
    After each child was interviewed by emcee Brittany Banister, judges tackled the task of selecting the new Little Miss and Master as well as runners-up for both titles.
    Kailee Danielle Campbell, a sweet little blonde and the six-year-old daughter of Kim Jones and Josh Campbell, received the Little Miss title, while Bentley Noah McCrady, a handsome lad of four and son of Erica McCrady, was selected as the Little Master.
    Their runners-up were Kyleigh Renee Stover, 4, daughter of Melanie and Denny Robbins and Mark Stover, and Wyatt Scott Zellers, 4, son of Carla and Scott Zellers.

    When Pat Bridge of Scottsburg heard about the new Forever Tree Society program at the Scott County Community Foundation, she immediately knew she wanted to do something in memory of her parents, Laurence and Myrtle Bridge.
    They were lifelong residents and farmers in Johnson Township, Scott County. Myrtle was a charter member of the Scott Memorial Hospital Guild and Laurence was a committee member of the Agriculture Stabilization Office for many years.
    They were both members and very active in the Pisgah Methodist Church. “Honest, family oriented, hardworking and Christians,” says Pam Mosley, Pat’s only child and Laurence and Myrtle’s only grandchild.
    After learning more information about the Forever Tree Society, Pat decided to establish the Laurence and Myrtle Bridge Memorial Fund. She likes the concept that because of the unrestricted gift, the board can decide where the money is best needed. She was also able to participate in the matching funds program that the Foundation Board of Directors offered as an incentive to donors. Through Sept. 30, the Foundation is offering $25,000 in matching funds for the program.

    The Scott County Community Foundation invites all charitable organizations to submit proposals for the Foundation’s 2009 grants cycle. The grants may be used for any charitable purpose in the areas of community service, social service, education, health, the arts, environment and entrepreneurship. The Foundation has awarded over $2.3 million in grants and scholarships to the community since being established in 1997.
    The Board of Directors is continuing to meet the needs of Scott County through the availability of over $187,000 in support to the community this year because of funds established at the Community Foundation. Through the Foundation, scholarships totaling $29,600 will be awarded to numerous deserving students this year, and over $18,000 has already been awarded to charitable organizations and purposes. In addition, the Board has agreed to provide up to $25,000 in matching funds for its new Forever Tree Society memorial and tribute program.
   The Foundation also has almost $14,000 that it may award from its unrestricted funds for its competitive grants cycle, including the Addie Mae Graham Memorial Fund, the Lauren Graham Memorial Fund, Dr. William and Diann Scott Memorial Fund, John and Janice Martin Unrestricted Endowment Fund, Scott County Memorial Fund and Scott County Immediate Response Fund.
    All charitable organizations and causes are invited to submit proposals for the competitive process. There is no limit on the amount organizations may apply for this year.
    “We are very pleased to be able to open our grants cycle to the community this year, especially with the situation in our economy,” said Connie Kenninger, grants committee chairperson. “Our committee always looks forward to reviewing the creative ideas on how organizations are making an impact in our community, and we are excited to provide an opportunity to help make that difference.”
    Applications are due Monday, July 20 at 3 p.m. Interviews to the finalists will be conducted in August.
