    Seeing is believing, as the old saying goes.
    When Jenny McIntosh recently accompanied Sheriff John Lizenby and members of the Scott County Sheriff's Posse to a small farm where four horses were reported near death, seeing the animals' conditions made her fighting mad.
    “I usually try to stay neutral, but I felt like kicking someone when I saw these four, especially the one they'd tied in an old, dark barn. No food, no water. You wouldn't want to do that to your worst enemy, much less an animal that depends on you for care,” McIntosh stated.
    The confiscation of animals was the second in six months that the Sheriff's Office has performed. Sheriff Lizenby said in both cases owners of the horses taken had been warned and instructed on what a typical horse needs to have to thrive.

    A Scottsburg area couple found themselves being escorted to jail on Friday evening, December 4, and their flourishing marijuana business shut down when Indiana State troopers visited their home on Sommerville Road.
    Carl Collings, 34, and his wife, Melissa White-Collings, 40, were taken into custody by Indiana State Police after a search of their home north of Underwood revealed an indoor marijuana operation.
    Troopers Mark LaMaster and Robbie Caudill arrived at the home around 7:30 p.m. in conjunction with a narcotics investigation the two were conducting. When the woman answered the door, Trp. LaMaster said he explained to her that someone had contacted the Sellersburg ISP post about possible drug activity at the home.
    While the officers were talking to her, Trp. LaMaster said he detected the smell of “...raw marijuana coming from inside the residence.” He asked permission to enter and to search the premises. Carl Collings agreed to let them in and told them that a third person was in the home, Amanda Mae Keeton, 26, Scottsburg.

    The Pirate wrestling team hosted the annual Mid?Southern Conference Duals meet on Saturday, December 12 in Dunn Arena.  
    The Pirate wrestlers kept their Mid?Southern Conference winning streak alive with four more wins, despite several battles with injuries.  The Pirates extended their consecutive MSC winning streak to 40 matches, a streak dating back to December of 2003.  
    In the opener of the MSC Duals, the Pirates pounded Salem 72?3 and then followed that up with a 72?6 whipping of Eastern.  
    In round three, the Pirates fell behind Corydon 16?10 early, before momentum shifted and the Pirates cruised to a 66?16 victory.  
    In the final MSC bout of the day, competition got a little exciting against the Scottsburg Warrior. In a
"great, back?and?forth dual" the Pirates escaped with a 47?36 win over the talented Warriors.

County officials get answers about bypass delay PDF Print E-mail

    County council President Mark Manship and Lana Sullivan, president of the county commissioners, met with representatives from the Indiana Department of Transportation last Thursday (Dec. 10) seeking answers for the delay of the bypass project in Salem.
    Work on the project was expected to begin in the coming months and local officials recently learned that the project start date had been pushed to 2017.
    In the meeting, Sullivan and Manship were told that the actual new start date is 2015.
    Sullivan was glad she got answers, but admits to being frustrated with the recent turn of events.
    “It's very easy to get discouraged, but because of the work that has been put into this project, I refuse to believe it's not going to happen,” she said. “The amount of money that we've paid and the work we've put in on a local level, I'm not going to say it's not going to happen.
    “If I give up, what about everybody else? There are a lot of non-believers out there anyway, and rightfully so, but I am not going to give up because that will give everyone else the right to give up.”
