?    Thanks to a number of alert observers and a blown truck engine, a trio of alleged bank robbers soon found themselves behind bars in Scott County on Friday, January 2.
    Indiana Bank and Trust on U.S. Highway 31 South in Austin was not only the last bank in the county to be robbed in 2008, it was the first in 2009. Just before 11 a.m. on Friday, Austin police officers Col. Lonnie Noble and Patrolman Crystal Schapson were dispatched to IBT in response to a report of two suspicious males walking around in back of the building.
    As the officers were en route to the bank, dispatchers advised them that a robbery had occurred at that location.
    They arrived in time to see two white males running across the parking lot of Austin Christian Church, located directly south of the bank, and jump into a white Dodge pickup truck.

?    Four adults were arrested and five children removed from a mobile home on the south side of Scottsburg where an alleged methamphetamine lab was located by the Indiana State Police.
    Several ISP officers served a search warrant on the trailer at Lot 35 on Curtsinger Road on December 23, finding the children ranging in ages from three to ten and the four adults. Those arrested included Billy L. Holt, 28; Melissa D. Organ, 29; Ollie Delisa Holt, 27; and April Lane, 52. All were listed as residents of the mobile home; Lane is the mother of Billy Holt and Ollie Holt while Organ was described as the girlfriend of Billy Holt.
    In his probable cause affidavit filed with the Scott County Prosecutor’s Office, Trooper Mark LaMaster stated that he was joined by officers with the ISP’s Clandestine Methamphetamine Team in serving the warrant. They were met at the door by Ollie Holt, whom Trp. LaMaster said began screaming. Lane soon joined the officers and Ollie Holt, and it was learned that the mobile home belonged to Lane.

?    Students can earn up to $600 for themselves and $600 for their schools by creating a 30-second video public service announcement on the importance of recycling analog TVs for the digital TV changeover.
    The competition is part of the Don’t Trash Your TV! Video Contest sponsored by America Recycles Day Indiana.
    “Don’t Trash Your TV! Recycle It” is the message students will convey as they compete for cash prizes by creating the best video that will help educate Hoosiers on how to make the shift to digital television in an environmentally-friendly way.
    The first place winner will receive $600 cash for themselves and $600 for their school. Second place will receive $400 for themselves and $400 for their school, and third place will be awarded $200 for themselves and $200 for their schools. A People’s Choice Award, determined by the public, will also be up for grabs and is worth $400.
    “This is a great opportunity for project-based, experiential learning for our students,” said Dr. Suellen Reed, Indiana Superintendent of Public Instruction. “It combines many of Indiana’s academic standards while giving students an opportunity to teach Hoosiers the importance of eliminating e-waste.”
    The contest, which began on November 15 as part of America Recycles Day and ends January 15, is open to any Indiana student in grades nine through 12 and who is age 13 and older. Entrants and their corresponding schools have the opportunity to receive cash prizes while helping to further the goals of America Recycles Day Indiana (ARDI), a partnership between the Indiana Recycling Coalition, Indiana Department of Education, Indiana Department of Environmental Management and Comcast that is hosting the contest.
    The top ten PSA videos will be available to view through Comcast’s website at www.recroom.com, and the public can vote for the People’s Choice award worth $400. The winning PSA video will be distributed to media outlets across the state.
