    Two drug-related felony charges were scheduled to be filed by the Scott County Prosecutor's Office on Thursday, November 29, against a Scottsburg Middle School teacher and his son.
    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.
    State police at the Sellersburg post received a tip about the father and son having marijuana. Undercover detectives and a state trooper went to the  residence and interviewed the pair. After the interviews were completed, a search of the residence ensued. Approximately 2.9 pounds of the leafy illegal substance and several pieces of drug paraphernalia were allegedly discovered during that search, according to a news release from the post's public information officer, Sgt. Jerry Goodin. A photo of the marijuana found was released to the media. It showed a pile of dried marijuana that had been neatly bagged in sandwich wrappers.

    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!

New picture now hanging in Recorder’s Office, Catherine Poff recognized for leadership during World War II PDF Print E-mail

    “I was just kinda reminiscing,” stated Kathy Wesson as she demonstrated how she was peering into the Clark County Recorder’s Office with her neck outstretched and eyes wide.
    She recalled, “It was after four and the building was pretty much empty. I had just went downstairs from jury duty and was looking at the pictures. Then Dick Jones asked me if he cold help me.”
    That one question posed in June 2008 has now been answered.
    Yes, Jones could help Wesson and she could help him.
    Wesson proceeded to ask Jones if he knew that he was missing a picture of a Clark County Recorder.
    “My mom’s picture was not there,” Wesson stated.
    Wesson’s mom, Catherine Poff, took over the responsibility of the Clark County Recorder after her husband, Julius, was drafted by the Navy in 1942 to defend our country during World War II. While Julius was protecting his country on the Battleship New Mexico, Catherine proceeded to tackle the job of Recorder and mother of five children ranging in age from 10 years to 15 months old.
    The thought of taking over for her husband was natural. The entire family jumped in to help take care of the family’s 26 acre farm in St. Joe with the help of Grandpa William Poff.
