    An Austin man now faces 12 criminal charges filed in Scott Circuit Court, all connected to alleged drug dealing at his residence.
    James D. Haney, 50, was charged Monday, July 6, with seven Class B and C felony counts of dealing in a Schedule I, II or II controlled substance as well as two counts of dealing in a Schedule IV controlled substance, one misdemeanor count of dealing marijuana and Class D felony counts of maintaining a common nuisance and possession of paraphernalia.
    Haney was taken into custody on Thursday evening, July 2, by Major/Detective Lonnie Noble and Reserve Detective Robert Hardin after they and other Austin officers served a search warrant at the Haney household on Factory Drive.
    Listed as seized evidence was a number of Endocet, Lorcet, Lortab, Xanax, Methadone and Oxycodone tablets. Also discovered in the residence were two syringes and several pill cutters as well as $1,469 in currency. A total of $19 of that amount was identified by Det. Noble as marked enforcement aid monies used in previous “controlled” buys from Haney, the officer noted.
    The charges against Haney were prepared and an initial court hearing for him was prepared by Prosecutor Jason Mount for Tuesday, July 7. There will be charges filed against several other individuals as well, most for visiting a common nuisance, according to information received.
    Bail for Haney was set at $75,000 corporate surety or full cash.

    High School sports in this day and age never sleeps, here are some updates on Pirate Basketball accomplishments thus far this off season.  
    Last week, a team of five Pirates played in the Nolan Fieldhouse League and competed with a lot of toughness winning three consecutive games to win the league tournament. The team consisted of juniors Steven Coyne, Josh King, and Kyle Hayes, sophomore transfer Kendall Thompson and incoming freshmen Chris Braun.  
    The team defeated CAI in a lopsided victory, but then had to turn around and play a very athletic and talented Rock Creek team in the semifinals. During that game, the Pirates came back from two double figure deficits including a 16 point deficit late in the second half to force overtime.  
    In overtime, the Pirates pulled out a one point victory on a terrific back-door feed from King to  Coyne.
    In the finals, the Pirates also gutted out another one point victory over South Central in overtime to win the league tournament.
    "It was a gritty performance and it was great to see the kids compete and play with a lot of resiliency. I was very pleased with the way this group competed. They showed a lot of mental and physical toughness and they played really well together," commented Pirate Head Coach Sean Smith.

Fate of Salem Airport still “up in the air” PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 22 July 2009 00:00
    Monday evening, July 13, the Salem Common Council and the Salem Municipal Airport Board of Aviation Commissioners (BOAC) held a public hearing for the purpose of receiving input from citizens on the proposed sale of the Salem Municipal Airport.  
    Approximately half a dozen people choice to comment at the meeting.  Of those, only one spoke in favor of selling the old airport.  The others either spoke against the new airport or asked questions about the construction of the new airport—neither subject was the purpose of the Monday night meeting.  Earlier this year, a public hearing was held by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the BOAC to receive public comment on the construction of a new airport to the north of the current facility.
    Salem Mayor David Bower explained that the city and the BOAC are in negotiations with Lucas Oil for the purpose of coming to an agreement for use of the old airport facility.  As has been reported earlier, Lucas Oil plans to develop a drag racing facility on the old airport runway.  In addition, speculation about the connection between the Lucas Oil plans and expansion of the facilities serving the Salem Speedway seem to be increasing.
    Bower explained that any money received from the sale of the existing airport would, by law, have to be used in one of two ways.  First, the money could be used as the local match for the new airport facility or it would have to be returned to the FAA to repay the agency for money spent over the years maintaining and improving the current airport.
