?The Educational Association (EdTA) and its student honorary division- the International Thespian Society (ITS)- named John Marsh, retired principal at Floyd Central High School, as a 2008 Administrator’s Award recipient. The award was presented on Friday, June 27 at the International Thespian Festival, on the campus of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
    Marsh was nominated for this honor by Chris Bundy, director of Thespian troupe 1794 at Floyd Central High School.
    “As an educator, I am always challenged to be creative,” said Bundy. “John has not only encouraged that creativity, but backed it through the resources available to him. When he sees something that will provide a cultural benefit to our students and community, John is always at the forefront in providing support and encouragement for it.”

?Washington County woman is latest fatality in I-65 cross-over accident PDF Print E-mail

???    For the second time this year, emergency vehicles responded to calls of a fatal accident on Interstate 65 between Scottsburg and Austin that involved a vehicle crossing the grassy median and striking a semi-tractor-trailer.
    This time, the mishap occurred just south of the Austin interchange late Monday morning, July 21. A woman motorist, identified as Deborah Gunn, 55, Pekin, was headed south on I-65 on a clear morning around 11:45 a.m. when her silver-colored 1996 Ford Taurus suddenly crossed the median and struck the left rear tandems of a northbound semi-tractor operated by Kenneth J. Yeadon, 55, Mooresville.
    Yeadon, who was not injured in the accident, apparently saw the car crossing and slowed and then tried to avoid contact by going nearly off the road. Nothing worked; the car went under the rear trailer and disintegrated as the truck continued north.

?    A total of nine suspects were placed under arrest by Indiana State Police in connection with a probation check last Thursday afternoon, July 17.
    A local probation officer accompanied by ISP troopers went to the home on East McClain Avenue to perform a probation check on the occupant, Michelle R. Brewer, 38.
    In the search of Brewer’s residence, methamphetamine was discovered under a bed and in a bathroom, the probable cause affidavit prepared by Master Trooper Barry Brown indicated. Under three grams of the illegal substance was seized.
    Additionally, M/Trp. Brown stated paraphernalia was found as well as a quantity of pills, all of which officers said were controlled substances. Brewer was placed under arrest and transported to the Scott County Security Center.
    Then, things got rather interesting for the officers.
