Jerry Goodin Named Indiana ‘Sheriff of the Year’

In only his second year of a first term, the Indiana Sheriff’s Association has named Scott County Sheriff Jerry Goodin as Sheriff of The Year, according to ISA Executive Director Stephen P. Luce.
Goodin, a first term Democrat Scott County native, was chosen as the Indiana Sheriff of the Year by the associations’ board of directors.
“This is a very prestigious award as the Indiana Sheriff’s Association represents all ninety-two Sheriff’s in the state of Indiana,” said Luce.
Luce said the board or directors selected Goodin for the honor because of his Firm but Fair approach to crime, his office’s record number of criminal arrests, his implementation of Community Oriented Policing techniques into Scott County, his relentless pursuit of arresting drug dealers, his program for drug addicts once they are incarcerated in the Scott County Jail, his programs to teach offenders how to assimilate back into society, his job skills training for inmates, and the fact he was able to have the Scott County Jail pass the state jail inspection for the first time in over twenty years.
“Sheriff Goodin has an open ear/open door policy for every citizen of Scott County,” said Luce.
“It is a great honor and very humbling to be chosen when there are so many great Sheriff’s across the state of Indiana,” said Goodin. “The real gratitude should go to the hard working Scott County Deputies and Scott County Jail Officers whose dedication and belief in our ideas made all the good things happen.”
“The citizens of Scott County are also a very important and strategic part of our plan by keeping our phone lines busy with incoming information,” he added. “I truly care for and love Scott Countians and the Scott County Sheriff’s Office is just getting off the ground with training, professionalism and courtesy to our citizens.”

Crothersville Woman Charged With Dealing Meth

A 38-year-old Crothersville woman was arrested last Wednesday for dealing methamphetamine from her home and other drug charges.
Ashley Denise Chapman, of the 4800 block of north US 31 was arrested following an investigation by the Jackson County Sheriff’s Department.
The investigation developed after police received information that illegal drugs were being sold from Chapman’s residence just north of Crothersville.
The officer reported buying methamphetamine from Chapman with the assistance of narcotics detectives from the Seymour Police Department.
Jackson County Deputies and Crothersville Police officers served a search warrant. During the search, officers reported finding methamphetamine, marijuana and drug paraphernalia, including plastic bags, measured scooping devices, funnels and scales. That led police to believe Chapman was dealing from her residence.
Chapman was charged with dealing methamphetamine, possession of marijuana and possession of paraphernalia, and maintaining a common nuisance.
She was booked into the Jackson County Jail at 5:38 p.m. last Wednesday and is being held without bond, as of press deadline

Thoughts On November…

by Curt Kovener

We now find ourselves in the eleventh month of a year many of us wish would hurry and get over so we can (optimistically) look forward to a new and improved 2021. But to soothe our souls, contemplate on the observations of others about the month we have just begun.
•How sad would be November if we had no knowledge of the spring.
•In November, the smell of food is different. It is an orange smell. A squash and pumpkin smell. It tastes like cinnamon and can fill up a house in the morning, can pull everyone from bed in a fog. Food is better in November than any other time of the year.
•Spring is brown; summer, green; autumn, yellow; winter, white; November, gray.
•In November, the earth is growing quiet. It is making its bed, a winter bed for flowers and small creatures. The bed is brown and dark and silent, and much life can hide beneath its blankets.
•Not winter, not fall—November
•Dull November brings the blast, then the leaves are whirling fast.
•November is the month to remind us to be thankful for the many positive things happening in our life.
•In November, the trees are standing all sticks and bones. Without their leaves, how lovely they are, spreading their arms like dancers. They know it is time to be still.
•November is chill, frosted mornings with a silver sun rising behind the trees, red cardinals at the feeders, and squirrels running scallops amongst the fallen leaves.
•I have come to regard November as the older, harder man’s October. I appreciate the early darkness and cooler temperatures. It puts my mind in a different place than October. It is a month for a quieter, slightly more subdued celebration of summer’s death as winter tightens its grip.
•In November you begin to know how long the winter will be.
•October is the month for painted leaves. Their rich glow now flashes round the world. As fruits and leaves and the day itself acquire a bright tint just before they fall, so the year near its setting. October is its sunset sky; November the later twilight.
•No sun – no moon! No morn – no noon! No comfortable feel in any member! No shade, no shine, no butterflies, no bees! No fruits, no flowers, no leaves! November!

BOND SALE NOTICE
SCOTT COUNTY SCHOOL DISTRICT 2
Sealed proposals will be received on behalf of the Board of School Trustees (the “Board”) of Scott County School District 2 (the “School Corporation”), at the office of Therber & Brock (“Therber & Brock “), 11550 North Meridian Street, Suite 275, Carmel, Indiana, 46032; up to the hour of 11:00 a.m. (Local Time) on November 19, 2020, for the purchase of the bonds described as follows:
Scott County School District 2 General Obligation Bonds of 2020 (the “Bonds”), in the aggregate amount of approximately $2,000,000; Originally dated the date of delivery of the Bonds; Fully registered form; Denomination $100,000 or integral multiples thereof; Bearing interest at a rate or rates not to exceed a maximum of 4.0% per annum (to be determined by bidding), which interest will be payable on July 15, 2021 and semiannually on January 15 and July 15 thereafter; Principal payable at The Bank of New York Mellon Trust Company, N.A. in Indianapolis, Indiana, or by wire transfer to depositories on the payment date; Interest payable by check mailed one business day prior to interest payment date or by wire transfer to depositories on the interest payment date to registered owners or depositories as of the fifteenth day immediately preceding the interest payment date; Maturing on January 15 and July 15 beginning July 15, 2026 through no later than January 15, 2030 on the dates and amounts as provided by the School Corporation prior to the sale.
The School Corporation reserves the right to adjust the maturity schedule following the sale in order to accomplish the School Corporation’s financial objectives by reallocating debt service based upon the rates by the successful bidder (the “Purchaser”).
Bidders may submit a sealed bid to the School Corporation’s municipal advisor at the address described or e-mail the bid electronically to the School Corporation’s municipal advisor at mike.therber@theberbrock.com until the time of the bond sale as listed above. The Bonds have been designated by the School Corporation as qualified tax-exempt obligations for purposes of Section 265(b)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended to the date hereof (the “Code”).
The Bonds are not redeemable at the option of the School Corporation prior to maturity.
Bidders for the Bonds will be required to name the purchase price, not less than 99.50% of par and the interest rate or rates which the Bonds are to bear. Such interest rate or rates must be in multiples of 1/8th, 1/20th or 1/100th of 1%. Bids specifying two or more interest rates shall also specify the amount and maturities of the Bonds bearing each rate, but all Bonds maturing on the same date shall bear the same single interest rate. The Bonds will be awarded to the lowest responsible and responsive bidder whose bid is submitted in accordance herewith. The winning bidder will be the one who offers the lowest net interest cost to the School Corporation, to be determined by computing the total interest on all of the Bonds to their maturities based upon the schedule provided by the School Corporation prior to the sale and deducting therefrom the premium bid, if any, and adding thereto the discount bid, if any. Any premium bid must be paid at closing as a part of the purchase price. Although not a term of sale, it is requested that each bid show the net dollar interest cost from the date of the Bonds to final maturity and the net effective average interest rate. No conditional bids will be considered. The right is reserved to reject any and all bids. If an acceptable bid is not received for the Bonds on the date of sale hereinbefore fixed, the sale may be continued from day to day thereafter without further advertisement, during which time no bid which provides a higher net interest cost to the Corporation than the best bid received at the time of the advertised sale will be considered.
Each bid must be enclosed in a sealed envelope addressed to the School Corporation and marked on the outside “Bid for Scott County School District 2 General Obligation Bonds of 2020” or emailed to mike.therber@therberbrock.com. A good faith deposit (“Deposit”) in the form of cash or certified or cashier’s check in the amount of $20,000 payable to the order of Scott County School District 2 is required to be submitted by the successful Purchaser not later than 3:30 p.m. (Indianapolis time) on the next business day following the award. If such Deposit is not received by that time, the School Corporation may reject the bid. No interest on the Deposit will accrue to the Purchaser. The Deposit will be applied to the purchase price of the Bonds. In the event the Purchaser fails to honor the accepted bid, the Deposit will be retained by the School Corporation as liquidated damages.
The Purchaser shall make payment for such Bonds and accept delivery thereof within five days after being notified that the Bonds are ready for delivery, at such place in the City of Indianapolis, Indiana, as the Purchaser may designate, or at such other location mutually agreed to by the School Corporation and the Purchaser. The Bonds will be ready for delivery within 45 days after the date of sale. If the School Corporation fails to have the Bonds ready for delivery prior to the close of banking hours on the forty-fifth day after the date of sale, the Purchaser may secure the release of the bid upon request in writing, filed with the School Corporation. The Purchaser may apply to a securities depository registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) to make such Bonds depository-eligible.
All provisions of the bid form and Offering Circular (as hereinafter defined) are incorporated herein. As set forth in the Offering Circular, the Purchaser agrees by submission of their bid to assist the School Corporation in establishing the issue price of the Bonds under the terms outlined therein and shall execute and deliver to the School Corporation at closing an “issue price” certificate, together with the supporting pricing wires or equivalent communications, with such modifications as may be appropriate or necessary, in the reasonable judgment of the Purchaser, the School Corporation and Ice Miller LLP (“Bond Counsel”).
Bidders may change and submit bids as many times as they wish during the sale, but they may not withdraw a submitted bid. The last bid submitted by a bidder prior to the deadline for the receipt of bids will be compared to all other final bids to determine the winning bid. During the sale, no bidder will see any other bidder’s bid, nor will they see the status of their bid relative to other bids (e.g., whether their bid is a leading bid).
It is anticipated that CUSIP identification numbers may be printed on the Bonds, but neither the failure to print such numbers on any Bond nor any error with respect thereto shall constitute cause for failure or refusal by the Purchaser therefore to accept delivery of and pay for the Bonds in accordance with the terms of its proposal. No CUSIP identification number shall be deemed to be a part of any Bond or a part of the contract evidenced thereby and no liability shall hereafter attach to the School Corporation or any of its officers or agents because of or on account of such numbers. All expenses in relation to the printing of CUSIP identification numbers on the Bonds, if applicable, shall be paid for by the School Corporation; provided, however, that the CUSIP Service Bureau charge for the assignment of said numbers shall be the responsibility of and shall be paid for by the Purchaser. The Purchaser will also be responsible for any other fees or expenses it incurs in connection with the resale of the Bonds.
The Bonds are being issued for the purpose of procuring funds to be used for the renovation of and improvements to school facilities, including site improvements and the purchase of real estate, equipment, buses and technology, and will be the direct obligations of the School Corporation, payable out of ad valorem taxes to be collected on the taxable property within the School Corporation; however, the School Corporation’s collection of the levy may be limited by operation of I.C. 6-1.1-20.6, which provides taxpayers with tax credits for property taxes attributable to different classes of property in an amount that exceeds certain percentages of the gross assessed value of that property. The School Corporation is required by law to fully fund the payment of debt service on the Bonds in an amount sufficient to pay the debt service, regardless of any reduction in property tax collections due to the application of such tax credits. The School Corporation may not be able to levy or collect additional property taxes to make up this shortfall. The School Corporation is a school corporation organized pursuant to the provisions of I.C. 20-23; the bonds will not be “private activity bonds” as defined in Section 141 of the Code.
Upon the request of the successful bidder, it is expected that the Bonds will be converted to a Loan so long as all the requirements of this Notice are met.
The Bonds are not subject to SEC Rule 15c2-12 and therefore, the School Corporation will not enter into a continuing disclosure undertaking agreement or provide an official statement. The Purchaser must qualify as a sophisticated investor and is either a “qualified institutional buyer” as defined in Rule 144A or an “accredited investor” as defined in Rule 501 of Regulation D promulgated under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended. The Purchaser will need to sign typical closing documents to certify such status as a sophisticated investor with the intent to hold these Bonds for its own investment without a view towards retail.
The School Corporation has prepared an Offering Circular (“Offering Circular”) relating to the Bonds. Further information relative to the Bonds and a copy of the Offering Circular may be obtained upon application to Therber & Brock, 11550 North Meridian Street, Suite 275, Carmel, Indiana 46032. If bids are submitted by mail, they should be addressed to the Therber & Brock, 11550 North Meridian Street, Suite 275, Carmel, Indiana 46032.
These Bonds are offered subject to the approving opinion of Bond Counsel. The School Corporation will furnish at its expense the bond counsel opinion, printed bond forms, a transcript of proceedings, and closing papers in the usual form showing no litigation questioning the validity of the Bonds at the time of delivery.
