    In the early morning hours of March 14 Charlestown Officer Sgt. Richard Wagner assisted the Clark County Sheriff’s Department on a disturbance call in the 7600 block of High Jackson Road in Charlestown.  Upon officers arrival 30 year-old Matthew G. Tilford took off running on foot into the darkness towards the rear of the home and could not be located.  
    Clark County Sheriff’s Deputies determined that Tilford had allegedly made statements to family members that he wanted to conduct harm to himself.  
    Approximately three hours later, at 3:17 a.m., Sgt. Wagner was on routine patrol when he discovered the main entrance gate to the Drive-It-Auto, located at 10509 State Road 62 in Charlestown, appeared to have extensive damage to it. Sgt. Wagner turned around to investigate when he observed Tilford placing an item that was later identified as a circular saw into the front seat of a green colored Nissan passenger car.  
    Sgt. Wagner detained Tilford as well as the driver of the Nissan who was identified as 25 year-old Joshua Brown of Lexington, Kentucky.

    On Tuesday, March 10, the Washington County Economic Growth Partnership (WCEGP) held a news conference at the Community Learning Center for the express purpose of making public the results of the much awaited Purdue University Healthcare Technical Assistance Program (HTAP) survey for Washington County Memorial Hospital (WCMH).  The meeting was attending by Randy Lindauer and Dr. Stephen Kempker representing WCMH, Jerry Rose and Jess Helsel of WCEGP, Rebecca Marshall and Mark Hobson of the Salem Urban Enterprise Zone Board, Commissioner Lana Sullivan, County Council member Dr. Mark Manship and members of the press.
    After Helsel gave a brief history of how the HTAP process for WCMH came to be, he said that the community's concerns about the results and the delay on the part of WCMH to release the report were the motivating factors for the WCEGP to make the HTAP information public.  At that point, Rose handed out copies of the survey to everyone in attendance.  Helsel noted that additional copies would be available for public viewing at the hospitial, the Salem Public Library, Pekin Town Hall and Campbellsburg Town Hall.  For a summary story of the HTAP survey and results, go to www.gbpnews.com.
