    It's hard to imagine a business being successful year after year, despite economic ups and downs, but the Scottsburg McDonald's has continually grown over the years and will celebrate its 30th anniversary this May.
    The popular dine-in and drive-thru restaurant opened on May 8, 1979, in the spot it remains, nestled between other fast food restaurants on the north side of State Road 56 and on the west side of the Scottsburg I-65 interchange. Owners Mark and Jan Hieb started the business with his mom and dad, Clayton and Mardell Hieb. At that time, the McDonald's had 70 parking spaces with one drive-thru window and 85 seats for customers. Staff consisted of the Hiebs plus six managers and 50 employees.
    Thirty years later, McDonald's has 90 crew employees and ten managers. Anita Petty has been with McDonald's the longest, 27 years, 13 of those as store manager. Mark and Jan Hieb also bought the business from the older Hiebs 13 years ago.

        Five men now face criminal charges after Scottsburg police, with assistance from the Austin Police Department and the Sheriff's Department, served a search warrant on a Spicertown house alleged to be the site of drug dealing.
        Those facing charges include the two residents of the house, Dennis Smith, 35, and Carl Vancleave, 34; Donald J. Barrett, 61, Austin; Matthew Miller, 28, Austin; and David Gwin, 56, Austin.
        Around 5 p.m. on Friday, April 24, Scottsburg Patrolman Troy Ford was approached by a confidential informant who told Ford that Dennis Smith was selling drugs at his home on Tibbs Street. A “buy” was arranged, and $40 worth of Oxycontin was allegedly purchased from Smith at the residence.
        Using this action as a basis for a search warrant, Ptl. Ford contacted Scott County Prosecutor Jason Mount. The warrant was issued, and at 11 p.m., Ptl. Ford, Scottsburg patrolmen Steven Herald and Travis Rutherford, deputies Don Campbell and Joe Johnson and Austin Patrolman Shawn Hurt served the warrant.

Charlestown Pirate Pride Booster Club hosts Hole in One Contest PDF Print E-mail

    On a day fitted more for ice fishing than golf, 16 of the craziest golfers braved the elements on Tuesday, April 21, which included wind, rain and some sleet mixed in, to see who would hit a silly white ball into the cup for a “hole in one” on the par 3 160-yard number 3 green at Hidden Creek Golf Course in Sellersburg, for the grand prize of $50,000 that was up for grabs in the Charlestown Pirate Pride “Hole in One Contest.”
    Sixteen participants qualified for the contest after spending at least $200 at the Second Annual Charlestown Pirate Pride Sports Recognition banquet and auction, which was held in the gym at Charlestown High School. All the proceeds from the event will go toward purchasing weight lifting equipment for the new weight room that will be a part of the new high school.
    While some brave souls brushed aside the weather to hit the range in hopes of perfecting that special shot, others stayed warm and cozy by the fireplace inside the clubhouse before it was time for a chance at fame and glory.
    After drawing for the order to hit, everyone loaded into golf carts and took off in search of the Holy Grail of Golf. Needless to say there was some good-natured ribbing before and after each participants shot, in the end there could only be one winner.
