?    The Warriors traveled to Madison on January 9 looking to rebound off a frustrating loss to Seymour.
    Madison, at 2-6, hoped to play spoiler to Scottsburg’s momentum.  The two squads played each other close throughout the first half with Madison leading 33-29 at the break.  There was hope to be had for the Warriors, however, as sophomore guard Mason Gregory began to find his shooting stroke that had left him for a few games.
    The Cubs went on a run in the third quarter, outscoring Scottsburg 16 to 12.  They took a 49- 41 lead into the fourth quarter, knowing that the Warriors have outscored their opponents in the final period nearly every time this season. The 8-point lead was plenty for Madison, though, as they went on to win 62 to 55.
    The loss was described as frustrating for Scottsburg, as a few things bouncing their way could have easily won the game. One positive note in the game was the return of  Gregory to double figures with 19. A.J. Humes and Matt Bridgewater both had 12. Wynn led Madison with 28.

?Total of 12 charged over alleged underage drinking party on January 23 PDF Print E-mail
Written by Marty Randall   
Wednesday, 04 February 2009 00:00
?    The count of people charged in connection with a recent alleged underage drinking party on Reeves Road near Lexington increased to 12 as of Monday, February 2.
    A tip was received by law enforcement authorities on Friday night, January 23, that a party for older teens was being held at the residence of Kellie J. Robbins, 38, just north of Kinderhook Road in Lexington Township.
    Reserve Deputy Mike Tscheulin drove by the residence and reported to Deputy Joe Guarneri that there were several vehicles parked at the home. Deputy Don Campbell then joined Deputy Guarneri, Reserve Deputy Tscheulin, Deputy Joe Johnson and Probation Officer Scott Pool on a check of the house.
    Robbins was found there as were several people, all ages 18 to 20. One 16-year-old was also taken into custody and released to his mother.
    Those charged on January 26 with illegal possession/consumption/transportation of alcohol in Scott Superior Court included: Brittany L. Engle, 18, Austin; Lakyn Boyd, 19, Austin; Lee David Arbuckle, 18, Underwood; William Cheatam, 20, Deridder, La.; and Phillip A. Bowling, 18, Scottsburg. All of those charges are Class C misdemeanors. Robbins was charged with ten counts of furnishing alcohol to a minor, all Class C misdemeanors.
    Two other individuals who were found at the “party,” Nathan L. Davis, 21, Scottsburg, and Richard C. Howard, 18, Scottsburg, were charged in Scott Superior Court with disorderly conduct on January 26. Those are Class B misdemeanors.
    On Monday, February 2, four more young people were charged with illegal possession/consumption/transportation of alcohol by a minor. They include Justin W. Cole-Fox, 19, Austin; Robert S. Vetter, 19, Scottsburg; Jasmine R. Howard, 20, Scottsburg; and Haley D. Pedigo, 20, Madison. Vetter is the son of Kellie Robbins and was listed as a resident at the Reeve Road address.
    All of those charged have entered not guilty pleas and were released after posting bails. Trial dates were assigned by Judge Nicholas South.
    In portable alcohol breath testing done at the site, subjects’ results ranged from .013 to .06 percent, the case report indicated. Containers of alcohol were found throughout the home, and several of those arrested were taken into custody as they tried to hide in various rooms of the residence.
    As he was arresting Robbins, Deputy Campbell stated that he tried to explain to the woman that she could not furnish alcohol to a person under age 21. He said that Robbins had apparently thought she could allow underage drinking because, as she related to the officer, all of the party-goers were “...staying there and not going anywhere.”
    Reserve Deputy Donnie Monroe and Indiana State Police Shannon Burton and Matt Marshall assisted at the site. A van was used by the Sheriff’s Department to transport all suspects to the Scott County Security Center in Scottsburg.

?Pirate baseball finalizes ‘09 Schedule, opens with Michigan school PDF Print E-mail

Wednesday, 04 February 2009 00:00
?    The Charlestown High School Pirates baseball team has finalized its 2009 schedule and includes an exciting opening game to begin the season.
    Charlevoix High School, of Michigan, is making a stop to play the Pirates on their way to Tennessee for their annual Spring Break trip. The game will be both team's opening game for the 2009 season, and also will mark the first time the Pirates have played an out of state team since the 2005 season (when they traveled to Ballard High School (KY) for the Ballard Invitational).
    Coach Ricky Romans comments, "We are eager to get things going this season. After finishing up last season with a disappointing ending, the guys are ready to hit the ground running in 09."  
    The Pirates return many of the same faces from a year ago, including 11 that have experienced varsity action.  
    "As with any program, pitching will be the key. We will be led by senior Cameron Metzger and junior Bryan Williams; and will need contributions from some of our young guys as well."  
    Offensively, the Pirates will miss the production and overall leadership of graduate All-State Clayton Merschbrock, but will have many guys that have the experience to fill his shoes.  
    "Leading that charge should be Cameron Metzger, followed by fellow seniors Matt Wyatt, Damon Vest, Joel Rodriguez, and Chad Brady,” said Coach Romans.  
    Overall, it will be another challenging season in the Mid-Southern Conference. Annual out of conference games against New Albany, Providence, and Madison will provide plenty of tests for the team in preparation of a successful post-season.  
    Coach Romans continued, "If we come ready to work everyday and focus on improving throughout the season, we should be primed for another winning season and an opportunity to make some noise in the Conference and Sectional."      The complete schedule, including a printable version is available from the Pirate Baseball Sports Page.  Catch Coach Romans' halftime interview during the Corydon boys basketball game broadcast, February 7 on Pirate Pride Sports Broadcasting.
