    On Saturday, September 26, 2009, the Carnegie Center for Art and History in New Albany, Indiana will participate in the fifth annual Museum Day, presented by Smithsonian magazine.  A celebration of culture, learning and the dissemination of knowledge, Smithsonian’s Museum Day reflects the spirit of the magazine and emulates the free-admission policy of the Smithsonian Institution’s Washington, DC-based properties.
     Last year, upwards of 200,000 people attended Museum Day, with all 50 states plus Puerto Rico represented by over 900 participating museums, including 84 Smithsonian affiliate museums. This year, the magazine expects to attract over 1,000 museums.  “The Carnegie Center for Art and History is proud to participate in Museum Day 2009 in association with the venerable museums of the Smithsonian Institution,” said Laura Wilkins, Director of Marketing and Outreach at the Center.  “Like the Smithsonian museums, the Carnegie Center offers free admission and programs year-round, and we look forward to recognizing Museum Day 2009 with our visitors.”

    Two people have been charged in the Monday, August 31, burglary of the Casey's General Store on U.S. Highway 31 South in Scottsburg.
    Michael LaMaster, 19, Scottsburg, remains at the Scott County Security Center. Police were still seeking Gladys “Suzie” Saylors, 33, also of Scottsburg.
    Both have been charged in Scott Circuit Court with one count each of burglary, conspiracy to commit burglary and contributing to the delinquency of a minor. Both burglary-related charges are Class C felonies. The third charge is a Class A misdemeanor.
    Sgt. Steven Herald with the Scottsburg Police Department prepared the probable cause affidavit filed with the charges against the pair.
    In the document, Sgt. Herald related how he was dispatched to the business on September 1 with other officers. Two store managers were present, one of whom confirmed the store had been closed at 11:40 p.m.
    By looking at security camera tape, the officer learned that two unauthorized people entered the store at 11:45 p.m. The woman wore a hat and a hoodie sweatshirt with the hood pulled up obscuring her face. The male wore a hat, white bandanna, white t-shirt and faded blue jeans. He was also seen wearing a white bracelet.
    The camera recorded the pair's activities inside the store. The woman went into the office and shut off some lights and then went to the store's safe and opened it by punching in numbers on the safe's keypad. She dumped money from the safe into a trash can.
    Her companion grabbed chewing tobacco and cigarettes and put them into the trash container.
    They then left by the front door.
