    A recent incident at an elderly woman's home has caused Scottsburg Police Chief Delbert Meeks to issue a word of caution to residents.
    Chief Meeks said that the woman reported to her family that two men came to her home on a recent evening and verbally identified themselves as Scottsburg Water Department workers. She said the men told her that they needed to check the pipes in her basement, and they requested that she come downstairs in the basement with them.
    The lady allowed the men into her home but refused to go into the basement. She said they stayed a short while before coming back up from the basement, asking her to run her water for a period of time and then leaving. She later called a daughter and reported the incident. Nothing appears to be missing from the home.

Season ends as Warriors fall short in sectional PDF Print E-mail

    Scottsburg was riding a wave of momentum as they had defeated Madison 76-60 in a convincing fashion the previous night.
    They hoped that wave would carry them past a Greensburg team that knocked off heavily favored Batesville on Friday night, March 6, as well.  The Pirates won their game by outhustling and outsmarting the Bulldogs in every way.  The Warriors on the other hand, won their game by shooting the lights out, and scoring at will.  Scottsburg planned to use that same game-plan in the sectional final against Greensburg.
    As expected, the Pirates came out in a hustling fashion, dominating the Warriors in every category.  Scottsburg went away from the deadly three point shooting that carried them past the Cubs, and didn’t lock down the interior defense either, and allowed Greensburg to pull away.  
    The Pirates would lead by as much as 20 at one point, and would hold a sizeable lead until the fourth quarter, when the Warriors would get no closer than eight points, losing 64-53.  
    The title game was Scottsburg first appearance in a sectional final since 2005, and will likely be a favorite in conference next season as they lose only Tyler Patton to graduation.

    Of the nine traffic accidents recorded in Scott County for the month of March, seven have involved injuries to 13 people.
    The unlucky streak for motorists began on Wednesday, March 4, with a collision at the intersection of State Road 56 and State Road 203 east of Scottsburg shortly after 8 a.m.
    Drivers were Brantly V. Tomlin, 19, Jeffersonville, and Donald E. Larson Jr., 28, Scottsburg.
    Driver statements taken by Deputy Mark Shapinsky of the Sheriff's Department indicated that Tomlin was making a left turn from S.R. 203 onto westbound S.R. 56. He said he did not see Larson coming east on S.R. 56 in his 2000 Chevy Cavalier. Larson's car hit Tomlin's 1996 Pontiac Bonneville in its left rear side, causing the Cavalier to spin and go off the north side of the highway into a ditch line and overturning.
