    Saturday is full of basketball action at Pekin. The day will begin at 1:30 p.m. with the Lady Musketeers hosting Crawford County.
    Then later that night, the Musketeers will square off against county rival Salem.
    In addition to the basketball action, all the teams involved will be helping to raise money for a good cause as it will be Coaches vs. Cancer and Breast Cancer Awareness Night.
    Everyone is encouraged to wear pink and hats will be passed through the crowd to collect money for cancer research.
    Prior to the Salem-Eastern boys' game, the 13th annual Bill Cope Chili Supper will also take place. The meal will be served beginning at 4:30 and will include chili, a peanut butter sandwich or hot dog, crackers, drinks and desert for $4.75.
    A la carte items will also be available for purchase.
    Chili supper organizer Bobbi Cope said over the years the event has been a huge success.
    “I am pretty sure that we have given over $13,000 in scholarship money over the years,” she said. “This is a wonderful way to remember my husband and his generous and loving spirit.”
    The Eastern High School Athletic Booster Club is also hosting a silent auction. The top item is a Lebron James autographed basketball as well as other signed balls.

    It is said where a garden is planted, love grows. And even in the dead of winter, the new Memory Garden, constructed and completed by the youth at BRS’ Summit View Youth Shelter is already blooming with love. The Garden, located at the Harrison Township Fire Department on Old Hwy 135 in Corydon, is dedicated to the memory of all abused, neglected and orphaned children. The project was made possible through a grant from the Community Foundation of Southern Indiana and the Youth Philanthropy Council in 2009. The youth chose the theme in hopes the Memory Garden (pictured to the right) will continue to remind us of the need to pray for and reach out to all children who are suffering everyday through neglect and abuse.
    Along with designing, purchasing the flowers and figurines and building the garden, the youth also presented the Harrison Township Firemen with tokens of appreciation for their dedication and service to the community. Concrete figurines of a fireman saving a young child, a red fire hydrant and a Fireman’s Bench along with a wind chime featuring the Fireman’s symbol were presented to Fireman J. McKim in honor of the firemen’s service. The fireman figurine was painted by the youth as well, complete with the Harrison Township badge on the sleeve and fireman’s hat.

Thieves are again targeting AC/heating units in county PDF Print E-mail

        The trend to steal parts or whole climate control units from local businesses and county churches is again growing steadily in Scott County.
        “We are watching the more remote country churches and other buildings as best we can, but our deputies and reserves can only be in so many places. Thieves know this, so the air conditioning and heat pump units are again being 'hit' around the county,” advised Sheriff John Lizenby.
        Several homes, businesses and churches have fallen victim to unscrupulous criminals who normally tear apart the units and take the relatively small quantities of copper coil out of them. Now, the Sheriff's Department has added the old Zimmerman building at State Road 356 and U.S. Highway 31 South and Emmanuel Baptist Church to its list of latest sites of such thefts. Noted Sheriff Lizenby, “Sometimes, the amount of work that went into the theft was probably worth more than what these people can get selling the copper as salvage. It's amazing they'd invest that much effort.”

    A Borden woman who allegedly admitted to Indiana State troopers that she was the driver who purportedly started a chain reaction accident that led to the death of two Scott County residents on December 13 now faces 13 criminal charges in the case.
    All of the charges against Jennifer P. Just, 34, were filed in Scott Superior Court. They range from Class B felonies of operation of a motor vehicle causing death with a controlled substance in blood to Class D felonies of operation of a motor vehicle with a controlled substance in blood causing serious bodily injury.
    James and Thelma Jewell of Austin died as the result of Just's alleged actions that sunny Sunday afternoon. Around 1 p.m., the Jewells were driving north on I-65 and were a few miles south of the Austin exit when their silver 2003 Toyota Tacoma pickup truck was struck in the rear by a 1996 Ford Ranger pickup purportedly driven by Just.
