    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.
