    The popular low-cost health-screening program offered each year by the Scott County State Bank in cooperation with Scott Memorial Hospital is being held later than usual this year. The event is usually held in March, but weather concerns prompted moving the event to Tuesday, April 28. Organizers feel this is a better time for the screening program.
    “We always worry about the weather in early March,” said Scott Memorial Hospital Public Relations Director John Sheckler. “It is understandable that people would miss their appointments if the roads are covered with ice. ”
The free and low cost screenings at the 14th Annual Bank on Good Health screenings include blood pressure, blood sugar, body fat, cholesterol, metabolic profile, Hemoglobin A1c and men’s PSA cancer screenings. Some of the tests require pre-registration. The registration phone line will not open until Monday, April 6.

     A high speed chase on Wednesday, March 18, in Scottsburg and Scott County ended with the arrest of a motorcyclist in eastern Washington County on drug and other charges.
    Scottsburg Police Department Patrolman Steven Herald was contacted by dispatchers who had received a report from a motorist on Interstate 65 that a motorcyclist had wrecked on the highway. The motorist said the cyclist got back on his bike and headed south toward the Scottsburg exit.
    Ptl. Herald went to the Scottsburg interchange and said he saw a motorcycle matching the description he had received. He said the cycle crossed the center line twice and then took the westbound Scottsburg exit sharply.
He stopped the motorcycle, but as soon as he had gotten out of his patrol car, the cyclist took off west on State Road 56. The vehicle did not stop for the traffic light at S.R. 56 and Lake Road but rather continued on at a high rate of speed, estimated in excess of 90 miles per hour. The motorcycle also passed a truck in a no passing zone, the officer stated.

    An electrical fire which apparently started in an attic area completely destroyed the building which housed Miller Heating and Cooling on State Road 256 in Austin early Saturday morning, March 21.
    Kevin Salyers, acting fire chief for the Jennings Township Volunteer Fire Department, stated that the department received an alert call around 2 a.m. Saturday, advising that the business was on fire.
    Apparently, a 9-1-1 call was placed to dispatchers by residents across the highway from the business. Miller Heating and Cooling was located in what is known locally as the old Home Oven Restaurant. The structure had been renovated to serve the purposes of the business, which had been located there a little over a year.
