    Mark William Armstrong, the Scottsburg man arrested in 2008 and charged with production of child pornography, will most likely spend the rest of his life behind bars.
    Armstrong was sentenced to 75 years on Monday, November 23, in U.S. District Court by Judge David F. Hamilton. Armstrong had pleaded guilty to three counts of production of child pornography. Because he was convicted of a federal crime, Armstrong will only receive 60 days of credit for time served per year he serves; consequently, he will not be eligible for release for more than 62 years. Armstrong is 40 years old.
    Chief Judge Hamilton also imposed a lifetime supervised release following Armstrong's completion of his prison sentence. During any period of supervised release, Armstrong must be registered as a sexual offender for life and may not have any unsupervised contact with a minor child.
    He was also fined $25,000.

    The Ohio Valley Gold and Silver Refinery is hosting a five day precious metals reclamation drive in Scottsburg.
Local area business and the general public will have a rare opportunity to turn in their precious metals direct to the refinery where they will be paid on the spot. Ohio Valley Gold and Silver Refinery expects to purchase over $300,000 worth of antiques, collectibles, gold, silver, platinum and palladium during this five-day event.
    The show began Tuesday, December 15 and will continue through Saturday, December 19. Hours are 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Tuesday through Friday and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday. The event will be held at the Holiday Inn Express in Scottsburg.
    Refineries typically do not do business with the public. Rather, they deal with precious metal accumulators like jewelry stores, pawn shops, dentist offices or industrial facilities that trade with some form of precious metal. Gold, silver, platinum and palladium will be accepted each day of the event.

Rescued horses finding love, hope await them at couple's Second Chance Ranch PDF Print E-mail

    Seeing is believing, as the old saying goes.
    When Jenny McIntosh recently accompanied Sheriff John Lizenby and members of the Scott County Sheriff's Posse to a small farm where four horses were reported near death, seeing the animals' conditions made her fighting mad.
    “I usually try to stay neutral, but I felt like kicking someone when I saw these four, especially the one they'd tied in an old, dark barn. No food, no water. You wouldn't want to do that to your worst enemy, much less an animal that depends on you for care,” McIntosh stated.
    The confiscation of animals was the second in six months that the Sheriff's Office has performed. Sheriff Lizenby said in both cases owners of the horses taken had been warned and instructed on what a typical horse needs to have to thrive.

    A Scottsburg area couple found themselves being escorted to jail on Friday evening, December 4, and their flourishing marijuana business shut down when Indiana State troopers visited their home on Sommerville Road.
    Carl Collings, 34, and his wife, Melissa White-Collings, 40, were taken into custody by Indiana State Police after a search of their home north of Underwood revealed an indoor marijuana operation.
    Troopers Mark LaMaster and Robbie Caudill arrived at the home around 7:30 p.m. in conjunction with a narcotics investigation the two were conducting. When the woman answered the door, Trp. LaMaster said he explained to her that someone had contacted the Sellersburg ISP post about possible drug activity at the home.
    While the officers were talking to her, Trp. LaMaster said he detected the smell of “...raw marijuana coming from inside the residence.” He asked permission to enter and to search the premises. Carl Collings agreed to let them in and told them that a third person was in the home, Amanda Mae Keeton, 26, Scottsburg.
