County Fair Board releases list of upcoming events at fairgrounds PDF Print E-mail

A busy late summer/early autumn is being planned by directors of the Scott County Fair Association.

Directors met on Tuesday night, August 8, to hear how the 2017 Scott County Fair fared and what’s on the schedule next.

The fair’s preliminary report given to board members indicated a little money was made. John McNeely, current board president, said cancelation of the tractor pull and poor grandstand attendance on a couple of nights factored into the narrow profit margin. Not all of the expected bills resulting from the fair have arrived yet, either, McNeely related.

A more thorough report is expected to be presented at the annual meeting of the Fair Association. A meal will be served at 6 p.m. for all association members on Tuesday, September 12. Any person who is a member of the Fair Association can vote for 2018 officers that evening. The meeting will begin at 6:30 p.m.

All meetings are open to the public and held in the former Saddle Club building at the fairgrounds, which is accessible from Fairgrounds Road.

Getting back to what’s ahead in coming months at the fairgrounds, an auction of estate items is planned for Saturday, August 26.

On September 9 and 10, an American Quarter Horse Association show will be held. The fairgrounds’ show arena, indoor arena, horse barn and the Saddle Club building will be in use.

On Saturday, September 16, a consignment auction is scheduled. Items will include farm machinery and equipment.

There may be a tractor pull that night at the grandstand, but plans were not complete at the August 8 meeting.

October 28 is going to be a busy time. Scottsburg FFA members will host a livestock show that day. The evening will be devoted to a Halloween demolition derby sponsored by the fair association at the grandstand.

Next year, members of the Midwest Triumph Motorcycle Club are planning to be at the fairgrounds June 7-10.

At the top of the board’s “to do” list in the coming months is construction of the new restrooms on the south side of the fairgrounds. Renovation of the booth spaces under the grandstand and work on the old Merchants’ Building are also planned.

“We got a lot done this year, but we’ve got more to do,” said McNeely. “We’ll just have to keep working at it.”

 
Another Casey’s coming to Scottsburg on U.S. 31 North PDF Print E-mail

The City of Scottsburg will soon have two Casey’s gas/convenience stores in the community.

Members of the Scott County Area Plan Commission (APC) considered a Development Plan (DP) submitted by the corporation for a new, larger store at the APC’s meeting on Wednesday night, August 9. Its location will be on the northwest corner of U.S. Highway 31 North (North Gardner Street). The corner site is presently the home of Martin Auto Supply. Adjacent property, once the home of the late Raymond and Marietta Hardy and now owned by businessman Tex Murphy, is also included in the deal. All of the property is zoned Business 2.

The Casey’s chain currently has a store at the intersection of U.S. 31 South and West Lake Road in Scottsburg.

Members of the Martin family were in attendance as was the apparent owner/operator of a Marathon gas/convenience store located on the southwest corner of the intersection owned by the SVM Corporation, a Mr. Mitesch.

Mitesch responded when APC board president Mark Whittymore asked if anyone had comments. Mitesch had collected information about several surrounding cities and the number of gas stations located in them. His conclusion was that, since Scottsburg already had eight, there was a sufficient number to serve the population.

“We have tried to sell this property, but we cannot because of the number of gas stations that are here,” Mitesch told the board.

The only sticking point with the APC was introduced by board member Dale Hobbs. Hobbs and several others on the board supported the gas station installing a concrete sidewalk along U.S. 31 and its side of Owen St. to serve the public.

Scott Burge, the project architect, said he would advise the developer that a sidewalk is needed.

With that, the board voted 5-0 to approve the DP with the addition of a sidewalk and making its dumpster location negotiable with APC Executive Director April Ramoni.

The APC also approved a DP for addition of an elevator at the Bacala Center on Wardell Street in downtown Scottsburg.

The elevator will actually be an addition to the former hospital/doctor office on its east side. People at ground level will enter it and be admitted to the building’s second floor. The Bacala Center now houses the daily meal program and senior citizens’ center offered through LifeSpan Resources. Improvements on its second floor will enable more social programs to be offered at the site.
