8 Face Scott County Drug Associated Charges

Eight people were arrested last week on drug associated charges and lodged in the Scott County Jail.
On Wednesday, Dec. 2, Scott County Sheriff’s Deputy John Hartman made a traffic stop in rural Scott County. His questioning of the driver led to the arrest of Michael Chilton, 52, of Seymour for possession of methamphetamine, possession of paraphernalia and driving while suspended with a prior conviction.
On Thursday, Dec. 3, Deputy Johnney Coomer made a traffic stop in Scottsburg. His investigation led to the arrest of Curtis Eldridge, 46, of Austin for possession of methamphetamine, possession of a syringe, maintaining a common nuisance, possession of paraphernalia and driving while suspended with a prior conviction.
A domestic disturbance in Austin on Sunday, Dec. 6, sent two people to jail. Deputies Charlie Morgan and Chris Bowling responded to the disturbance which resulted in Robert McFarlin, 35, of Austin being charged with domestic battery, strangulation, possession of methamphetamine and possession of drug paraphernalia. Donna Ruth, 42, of Austin was arrested on a previously filed warrant for failure to appear in court.
Three people already incarcerated in Scott County Jail were served warrants on Monday, Dec. 7, and now face additional drug related charges.
Deputy Johnney Coomer served Scott County Court arrest warrants on the following:
Autumn Campbell, 38, of Crothersville was served an outstanding arrest warrant for dealing in a narcotic drug.
Debra Gay, 60, of Scottsburg was served outstanding arrest warrants for failure to comply on the charges of dealing in methamphetamine and failure to comply on the charges of dealing in a narcotic drug, possession of methamphetamine, possession of a narcotic drug, dealing in marijuana, possession of marijuana and possession of a syringe.
Gabrielle Little, 30, of Scottsburg was served with an outstanding arrest warrant for failure to comply on the charges of dealing in methamphetamine, dealing in a narcotic drug, dealing in a controlled substance, and possession of a syringe.
On Tuesday, Dec. 8, Deputy Johnney Coomer was called to a business on the report of a suspicious circumstance. After talking with a man, his investigation led to the arrest of Trentin Ragland, 19, of Scottsburg for possession of marijuana.

Medora, Scottsburg, Scott County Awarded State Paving Grants

Medora, Scottsburg and Scott County were among the 241 communities sharing in $101 million in state matching funds for local road projects through Community Crossings, a component of the Governor’s Next Level Roads program it was announced last week.
The Town of Medora is receiving $179,316 for town street improvement, the City of Scottsburg will be receiving $981,286 for street resurfacing, and Scott County will be receiving $866,372 for county road re-surfacing.
“We are projected to pave about a third of our city streets in 2021,” said Scottsburg Mayor Terry Amick.
He said the following streets are scheduled to be paved with this round of funding:
Weir Rd., Jefferson St., Lakeview Dr., Crystal Gail Hts., Davis St., Wardell St., Chipaway Ln., Terrell St., Owens St., York Rd., Harrison St., Washington St., Beechwood Ave., South St., Hazzard St., Northfield Dr., Smith St., Walnut St., Hiram Boswell Rd., Ray St., Fairground Rd., Honeyrun Pkwy., Green St., Larry Ln., Bellevue Ave., 3rd St., Newman St., Spring St., Opal Dr., Cherry St., Madison St.
“As we navigate through the challenges created by the COVID-19 pandemic, we’re as committed as ever to improving and building our state’s infrastructure. I’m incredibly pleased that we’re able to fund all of the high-priority local road projects submitted in this round,” said Gov. Eric Holcomb. “Taking care of our local roads is key to making sure our communities remain attractive places to grow businesses and create careers.”
The Community Crossings Initiative has provided more than $830 million in state matching funds for construction projects. In response to revenue uncertainty caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, INDOT moved this call for projects, originally scheduled for July, to September. The $101 million award is funded by the balance available in the state’s local road and bridge matching grant fund at the end of the 2020 fiscal year as well as revenue collected so far in the 2021 fiscal year.
“This is a tremendous win for our local partners,” INDOT Commissioner Joe McGuinness said. “Our continued partnership with Hoosier communities will deliver more high priority local road projects in the coming year, many of which have been in planning for months or even years and wouldn’t be able to move forward now without the state’s funding commitment.”
To qualify for funding, local governments must provide local matching funds, 50 percent for larger communities or 25 percent for smaller communities, from a funding source approved for road and bridge construction. They must also submit an INDOT-approved asset management plan for maintaining existing roads and bridges. State law requires annually that 50 percent of the available matching funds be awarded to communities within counties with a population of 50,000 or fewer.

Former AHS Standout Mandy Lueking Named To Indiana 2021 Silver Anniversary Team

Austin Lady Eagle basketball standout Mandy (Lueking) Nowlin was among the 18 women who have been named to the Indiana Basketball Hall of Fame’s 2021 Silver Anniversary Team, based on outstanding accomplishments as a senior basketball player 25 years ago.
Nowlin graduated from AHS in 1996 and played for Lady Eagles Coach Mike Deaton. She resides in Nashville, TN with her daughter and teaches elementary school. Her father, David Lueking, coached the boys’ varsity basketball team for a number of years.
She scored 1,006 career points at AHS despite an ACL injury that eliminated most of her senior season. She was named two-time team MVP and Mid-Southern Conference MVP.
The Silver Anniversary team includes 11 members of the 1996 Indiana All-Star squad, among them Indiana’s Miss Basketball. Seven other all-state players are included to comprise the best of Indiana’s high school class of 1996.
Indiana All-Stars on this year’s Silver Anniversary Team include Miss Basketball Lisa (Winter) Finn of Huntington North along with Mackenzie (Curless) Graft, Sarah (Hurrle) Kegerreis, Rachael (Honegger) Killinger, Jill (Morton) McFarling, Melaniece (Bardley) McKnight, Janette (Jaques) Meyer, Sarrah (Stricklett) Mosher, Nicole (McDaniel) Powell, Lauren Rice and Rachel (Garner) Young.
The remaining seven, named to various all-state teams are: Angie (Hupfer) Bossnack, Carie (Wickham) Bronnenberg, Rainey (Alting) Jones, Lindsay (Winkler) Justus, Mandy (Lueking) Nowlin, Jamie (Stewart) Russell and Jaymee Wappes.
Due to COVID-19 conditions, a date for the 2021 Indiana Basketball Hall of Fame Women’s Awards Banquet has not been set. The 2021 Women’s Silver Anniversary Team is expected to be honored during that event once a date is set. Information for the event will be posted on the Hall of Fame website,

The Warm & Fuzzy Time Of The Year

by Curt Kovener

I’m going to clue you in on a bedroom secret here in the Hoosier Wilderness.
This isn’t X-rated but it is Z-rated as in ZZZzzzzzz.
When colder weather arrives in this neck of the woods of the Hoosier State, our bed gets covered with flannel sheets: top sheet, bottom sheet, pillow cases.
Yep, the same material we all wore as footed PJ’s as we toddled through the house in diapers & training pants. The same material I wear three seasons of the year in my outdoor shirts.
What we have found as we surpass middle age is that comfort is playing a larger role in our lives.
Satin sheets are way over-rated for sleeptime. They are cold & never warm up. The percale and muslin cotton sheets might be fine for the summer night sleeping, but when the frost is on the pumpkin, snow on the rooftop, ice in the birdbath, and the thermometer is even too cold to rise, we switch to the soft, warm embrace of old-time flannel sheets.
Growing up I think Mom called it a sheet blanket—a flat, white cotton flannel sheet which covered you. But you still had to deal with the initial cold bottom sheet.
We now has an assortment of flannel sheets in a variety of colors—solids, plaids & outdoor woodsy scenes.
The flannels are particularly appreciated in the wilderness where after a day of working outdoors and some warming up in front of the fireplace and an adult beverage or two the flannel sheets, extra blankets and comforter offer a warm hug for the night’s slumber.
In the winter we forego electric blankets. Instead, our bedroom thermostat is turned down into the mid-60° range and we pile blankets and a thick comforter onto the flannel sheets. And the snoozing is never better. You don’t feel cramped up fearing to move to a new sleeping position because the sheets where your body isn’t are cold. No matter where arms & legs flail through the night, there is warmth.
But there is a downside to flannel sheets: flannel pajamas. They act like Velcro®.
In addition to flannel sheets and flannel shirts, I have found another comforting application for the wintertime fuzzy cotton fabric—flannel boxers. But maybe that is a topic for another column.
