    Six graduating seniors in Clark, Floyd and Harrison counties will receive the generous, well-earned gift of full-tuition scholarships as the Community Foundation of Southern Indiana’s 2009 Lilly Endowment Community Scholars.
In addition to full tuition to the accredited Indiana college or university of their choice, the students will receive an $800 annual stipend for books and equipment.
    Honored scholars from each county were recommended by an independent committee of civic volunteers who assessed applicants anonymously from a county other than the one in which the committee members lived. Also, the students’ names were not revealed to the committee members.

    Spring clean-up in Scottsburg will begin Monday, April 20, according to a recent announcement by Jason Applegate, Superintendent of the city’s Streets and Sanitation Departments.
    City trucks will go over the entire community one time. They will start north on State Road 56 and travel east of U.S. Highway 31. Crews will then work their way north and back down the west side of U.S. 31 to the fairgrounds.
From there, they will go back up the east side of U.S. 31 to S.R. 56.
    Applegate noted that the process could take up to three weeks to complete, depending on weather conditions and the amount of trash being cleared out by Scottsburg residents.
    He cautioned that residents who place items out at curbside after crews have passed the residence will pay a pick-up charge for trucks to come back and get the items.
    Only household items will be allowed in this clean-up effort. Small items should be put in boxes or bags.
Items that will not be accepted include tires and remodeling or contractor materials as well as automotive parts or out-buildings. Refrigerators, freezers and air conditioners will not be picked up unless freon has been removed and a certified sticker is on the item.
    Applegate also said if outsiders bring trash to be picked up with city customers’ trash, the trash at that location will not be picked up, and the resident at that address could be subject to a citation.

    Three people were listed as injured in two separate traffic accidents that happened in Scottsburg on Thursday, April 2.
    According to information obtained from the Scottsburg Police Department, the two accidents occurred a little over an hour apart on Thursday afternoon. The first was reported at 3:28 p.m. on U.S. Highway 31 at its intersection with Wardell Street. Drivers were Brigid Young, 44, Louisville, Ky., and Jalia Campbell, 46, Scottsburg.
    Lt. Richey Barton investigated the mishap. Driver statements related that Young's 1994 Dodge Intrepid struck the 2005 Ford Taurus driven by Campbell in the rear as each was approaching the intersection. The impact forced Campbell's car into the back of a trailer being hauled by a pickup truck.
    The women told Lt. Barton that the driver of the pickup got out of the truck and looked at the back of both the trailer and his pickup and then got back in the truck and left without talking to either of them.
    Campbell was listed as injured. She suffered neck pain and was assisted at the scene by Scott County EMS.
    Property damage was estimated at up to $1,000 by the officer.
