    Six charges have been filed against a Scott County man who allegedly verbally threatened a woman after their relationship went sour.
    Harold Matthew “Matt” Kemp, 36, had his initial court hearing before Judge Roger Duvall on Monday, November 2, entering a not guilty plea to Class C felony battery, Class C felony criminal confinement, two counts of Class D felony intimidation, and misdemeanor charges of aggressive driving and reckless driving.
    According to the probable cause affidavit prepared by Detective Rick Barrett of the Scott County Sheriff's Department, Kemp and his estranged girlfriend were apparently arguing outside the Scott County Security Center on Thursday, October 29. They were seen by a jail employee, who reported the incident to Det. Barrett. As the detective and the employee approached the woman's car, they overheard Kemp tell the woman, “Those two won't be able to save you.” He then left.

    During the 2008 Thanksgiving holiday period, 15 people lost their lives in Indiana traffic crashes. More than 66 percent of those fatalities were alcohol related. Additionally, in more than two-thirds of the fatal collisions that occurred around Thanksgiving, the person killed was not wearing a seat belt.
    In an effort to prevent senseless injuries and fatalities from occurring on Indiana’s roadways this Thanksgiving holiday season, Chief Steve Dean, recently announced that the Charlestown Police Department will join the Indiana State Police and more than 250 law enforcement agencies throughout the state to conduct the Safe Family Travel enforcement blitz.
    Safe Family Travel is a statewide, annual enforcement campaign that combines high visibility seat belt and impaired driving patrols. The effort will take place Friday, November 13 through Sunday, November 29. During this time, Indiana law enforcement officers will work thousands of overtime hours., day and night, to ensure that motorists are driving responsibly and traveling safely on the state’s roadways.

Jolly resigns from Delaney board PDF Print E-mail

    Paul Jolly has been serving on the Delaney Creek Park Board for nearly 30 years. That stretch ended on Nov. 4 when the Washington County Board of Commissioners accepted his letter of resignation.
    Jolly said the reason he decided to step down was the fact that he wants to spend more time traveling to visit grandkids, but didn't deny the park's uncertain future played into it.
    “I've been at this for 30 years and that's the main reason,” he said, “not all this other stuff. I am all for the park. I think it's a great place and Washington County is lucky to have a place like that. I think there are a lot of counties that would love to have a park like that.”
    Jolly said ultimately he didn't want to be on the park board if he felt like he couldn't do a good job and he thinks both his busy schedule and  some recent decisions made by county officials will hamper those efforts.
