    Members of the Scott County Board of Zoning Appeals (BZA) held an unusually long hearing on October 14 so that those concerned about a Jeffersonville-based religious group's plans for development at the old Marysville Pay Lake property could voice their opinions.
    Joseph Mullen is the construction manager for Voice of God Recordings Inc., the religious group which wants to develop the area into a campground and overnight facility for its members and its youth. Mullen and Daniel Evans, Voice of God public relations officer, presented those plans before the BZA and some 20 people that evening. BZA members present included chairman Gary Green, Sandee Owens, Dale Hobbs and Don Wilkerson. Also present was Area Plan Commission Director Jamie Knowles.
    The group wanted a Conditional Use Variance (CUV) to allow the development of a Christian retreat at the lake, located on South Pleasant Ridge Road in Lexington Township. Mullen said Voice of God is a missionary group which operates worldwide to enrich people with the Christian experience as well as provide counseling and guidance. Voice of God is also in the recording and publishing business. The group's website offers more information on the business and church activities.

    Mark Hildebrand, 56, and his 26-year-old son, Jade, were taken into custody on Tuesday, November 27, at their home on South Double or Nothing Road after nearly three pounds of processed marijuana was found there by Indiana State Police detectives and a trooper.

    The Clark County Drug Treatment Court Program will sponsor a food drive/Cornhole/Corn Toss tournament November 20 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the front lawn of the Clark County Building, 501 East Court Avenue in Jeffersonville.
    This Food Drive will be the first sponsored by the treatment program.  The Drug Treatment Court wants to increase public awareness and give back to the community.
    Participants are asked to donate non-perishable items which will be given to the area food bank.  
    For each item donated, the individual will receive four tosses.  Scores will be kept as they are in a traditional Cornhole/Corn Toss game (a corn bag in the hole has a value of three points and a corn bag on the corn-hole platform is in-the-count and is worth one point).  
    The person with the most points at the end of the day will win a prize.  (Prize still to be determined)  
    The more you donate, the more points you can score and the better your chance of winning!
