Staff of a New Albany firm will soon be calling residents in Austin.

Workers with Key Research and Analysis Inc. will be contacting homeowners and renters by phone or mail to obtain income information. Contact will be made randomly, and all information provided will remain confidential.

City officials placed an advertisement in these Green Banner Publications newspapers recently to let residents know the calls and mailings are legitimate and that their answers are needed for the income survey. The information is required to apply successfully for most grants available to communities. This most recent survey will enable officials to provide up-to-date information.

The City of Austin has successfully applied for grants to repave streets and to tear down buildings unfit for habitation.

Anyone with questions about the income survey is welcome to contact office of Mayor Dillo Bush at 812-794-6646.

People seeking medical help to stem HIV now have a new option in Scott County, thanks to a two-year grant.

Scott County received the grant from the Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs (OCRA). Its money funds two clinics per month, on the first and third Wednesdays, at the Scott County Health Department One-Stop Shop, 825 U.S. Highway 31 North, Austin.

The first clinic was held on July 19. In August, the dates for the clinics are Wednesday, August 2, and Wednesday, August 16.

Those wanting appointments should call the One-Stop Shop at 812-794-2730.

The IU Health Infectious Disease clinic is partnered with LifeSpring Health Systems and the local Health Department to provide HIV and Hepatitis C care to any person who is currently not seeing a provider, explained Michelle Goodin, administrator of the Scott County Health Department.

“We would like to thank the Scott County Commissioners and Scott County Council for allowing this grant to bring these much-needed services to our community,” stated Goodin.

She also expressed appreciation for the application work performed by staff of River Hills Economic Development District, LifeSpring Health Systems and Indiana University Health for their partnership and the community for its welcoming support of these services.

An Austin man and woman who apparently got into a fight on Wednesday, July 19, got jailed over the incident.

Twice.

Jeremy W. Hensley, 30, and Sarah R. Spicer, 28, allegedly punched and slapped each other, respectively, in the July 19 incident at Hensley’s home on North Street.

Police Chief Robert Gudgel investigated the incident and arrested both on a charge of battery as a Level 6 felony. The severity of the charge was due to the fact that the physical fight between Hensley and Spicer reportedly occurred in the presence of a child less than 16 years old.

Each appeared in Circuit Court for initial hearings on July 21, and each was released on his/her own recognizance in lieu of paying bail. Spicer was ordered to live with a relative in North Vernon and placed on pre-trial supervision by the Scott County Probation Department.

Also, protective orders were served on each of the defendants, ordering them to stay away and have no contact with the other while awaiting their trials in October.

Skip forward to Sunday, July 23. Scottsburg Patrolman Greg Green saw the couple in a car parked at a local business. Knowing that each had an active protective order, he placed them under arrest for invasion of privacy, a Class A misdemeanor.

When the pair was brought before Judge Jason Mount again, he set bail for each this time at $10,000 by corporate surety bond or $1,000 cash. He denied a motion by the Prosecutor’s Office to increase Spicer’s bail.

Their bench trial dates coincide with their initial jury trial dates scheduled, October 16.
