Primary Races Set In Austin & Scottsburg

Crothersville, Medora and Brownstown Have An Aug. 1 Filing Deadline

The noon deadline last Friday passed and May 7 primary elections have been set in Austin and Scottsburg with a number of candidates seeking office.
In Austin, four Democrats and two Republicans are seeking their party’s nod to replace Austin Mayor Dillo Bush who chose not to seek re-election.
Democrats will chose between Ron Atkins, Roger Hawkins, Mark Stidham and Brandon White in the Democrat primary for Mayor of Austin. Republicans will select from Lonnie E. Noble Sr. and Jonathan Lee White for the GOP mayoral candidate.
While they will be listed on the ballot, there will be no primary race for clerk-treasurer of Austin as incumbent Democrat Chris Fugate and Republican Robert Jay Diehl were the only two candidates to file for that office.
Four Democrats and three Republicans are seeking the two at-large seats on the Austin City Council.
Robert S. Hickman, Brandon L. Stagnolia, Dewayne White and Johnnie White are seeking to be the Democrat candidates in the fall.
In May Republicans will chose between Allen Gabbard, Donnie Lewis, and Michael E. Payne for their two at-large council candidates in the fall.
At-large candidates run Austin city wide while only voters in one of three districts vote for their district council member.
There is no primary race in District 1 and District 2 as each has a Democrat and Republican candidate with no opposition in the spring.
In the Austin City Council 1 race, Democrat Jimmy Turner and Republican Ryan Gabbard will face one another in the fall.
In the District 2 race, only Democrat Joe Smith filed to run.
Two Democrats and two Republicans have filed for the District 3 Council seat. Dylan Baker and Staci Mullins will square off in May for the Democratic nomination while Republicans Donnie Lewis and Robert (Tim) O’Donnell are seeking the GOP nod for the council seat.
In Scottsburg, incumbent mayor William H. (Bill) Graham filed to run for another term on the Republican ticket.
Democrats Terry Amick and Chuck Sebastian filed for mayor setting up a re-match of 2015 for their party’s nomination for mayor.
Incumbent Democrat Jan Hardy was the only candidate to file for Scottsburg Clerk-Treasurer.
Two Democrats filed seeking the Scottsburg city council at-large post. James D. Coomer and Ric Manns will be contested in the Primary to see which candidate will face Republican Eric Mays in November.
In the Scottsburg District 1 council race incumbent Democrat Stanley L. Allen filed for re-election and in the fall he will face a challenge from Republican Chris Albertson in the fall.
In the District 2 Council race, incumbent Democrat Bill Hoagland faces a primary challenge from Denise Cain.
In the District 3 Council race, incumbent Democrat Karen Gricius faces no primary challenge for re-election. Two Republicans, Christian Evans and Larry N. Haven are seeking the GOP nomination for that third district seat.
Incumbent Democrat Chuck Rose was the lone filer for the Scottsburg District 4 seat.
While primary elections are set in larger cities, municipalities with a population less than 3,500—communities like Crothersville, Medora, and Brownstown—do not have primary elections and their major party filing deadline is Aug. 1.
Early filers for Crothersville Town Council were incumbent Republican Danieta Foster, and Democrats Brandon (Kyle) McIntosh and Geoffrey Walker.
In Medora, incumbent Democrat Betty M. Campbell filed to seek re-election as Medora Clerk-Treasurer.
Democrat Robert Thompson and Republicans James Davers, Jerry Ault and Sharon Bowers are seeking Medora Council at-large posts.
In Brownstown, incumbent Democrat David Willey filed for re-election as clerk-treasurer. Sonya Nale filed to run for Brownstown clerk-treasurer as a Republican.
Incumbent Republican Brownstown Ward 5 representative Sally Cate Lawson filed for re-election to that post.
Residents who are not registered to vote have until April 8 to register to vote in the May 7 primary election. Residents wanting to register can do so at the county clerk’s office or at IndianaVoters.com

Chain Of Crashes On I-65 Results In Injuries & Arrests

A single-vehicle crash and arrest for driving while intoxicated was the start to a series of three crashes on I-65 that sent four to area hospitals and involved a total of ten vehicles mid-day Friday
Around noon on Friday, the Indiana State Police received calls reporting a white Mitsubishi Eclipse driving erratically northbound on I-65 near Scottsburg. At approximately 12:07 that same vehicle crashed into the guardrail on the right side of I-65 northbound at the 34.5 mile-marker before crossing back over both lanes and colliding into the median guardrail and coming to rest.
The driver, Lindsay R. Bostock, 37, of Sellersburg was arrested for driving under the influence. Bostock was booked into the Scott County Jail. Prescription opioids are believed to be a factor in this crash, according to ISP Sgt. Carey Huls.
As traffic backed up from the crash scene, a three-vehicle property damage crash occurred on I-65 northbound at the 32.7 mile-marker at approximately 12:50 pm. Then, at 1:03 pm, a six-vehicle injury crash was reported one mile south at the 31 mile-marker.
The preliminary investigation reveals that as traffic was at a standstill due to the second crash scene, a 2003 International tractor-trailer collided into the rear of a line of stopped cars, creating a chain reaction of rear-end collisions involving five more vehicles.
As a result of this collision, Michael L. Brown, 75, of Scottsburg, and Micayla Kelly, 22, of Danville, Kentucky, each in separate vehicles, were transported by ambulance to Schneck Medical Center in Seymour where they were treated and released, Huls reported.
Jerry K. Pyle and his wife, Gwyneth, of Stanford, Kentucky, were transported by air to the University of Louisville Hospital with serious injuries, according to police.
During the subsequent investigation, the driver of the tractor-trailer, David Ray Wisdom, 46, of Lawrenceburg, Tennessee was found to be in possession of methamphetamine and paraphernalia.
Wisdom was arrested and booked into the Scott County Jail facing charges of possession of methamphetamine, possession of paraphernalia, and maintaining a common nuisance
This crashes are still under investigation and toxicology results are pending in both arrests.
As a result of the backup on the interstate, northbound traffic diverted onto US 31 through Scottsburg, Austin and to the Crothersville exit causing additional congestion.
Indiana State Police were assisted by the Scott County Sheriff’s Department, Scottsburg City Police, Scottsburg Fire Department, and Scott County EMS.

Crothersville Opens Bids To Pave 12 Streets This Year

The Crothersville Town Council was smiling last week when several bids for the next phase of paving in the community came in under the engineer’s estimate.
Dave O’Mara Contractors of North Vernon was the apparent low bidder for milling and paving up to 12 streets later this year in Crothersville as a part of the state Community Crossing grant when bids were opened at last week’s Crothersville Town Council meeting.
O’Mara’s bid was $227,503.60.
The North Vernon firm has previously done work in Crothersville installing larger culverts in 2017 on Bethany Road, Park Avenue and Kovener Street to improve surface water drainage.
All-Star Paving of Seymour was next in line with a bid of $256,292.30. All-Star was the winning bidder for the first Community Crossing grant paving in 2018.
Other bidders included Wingham Paving of Charlestown, $276,565.36; Mac Construction of New Albany, $324,874; and E&B Paving of Clarksville, $326,000.
The three lowest bids were under the engineer’s estimate of $296,302.40, according to Dan Wright of FPBH of North Vernon, the town’s engineering firm. Wright recommended that the council take the bids under advisement to give his firm and town attorney Jeff Lorenzo time to review them to make sure all bid documents were in order.
A special meeting was scheduled for Tuesday, Feb. 19, to award the bid.
The town of Crothersville was awarded $217,480 in November as a part of the state’s ‘Next Level Roads: Community Crossings Initiative.’
Among the streets to be preliminarily considered for milling, repair and resurfacing include:
•Industrial Way from US 31 west to the new extension.
•Howard Street from Bethany Road to Park Ave.
•Main Street Circle
•Pennsylvania Ave. from Walnut Street north to the corporate limits.
•Howard Street from Dismore to Preston.
•Moore Street from US 31 to Preston St.
•Moore Street from Preston east to the corporate limits.
•Main Street from the Railroad to US 31.
•Walnut Street from Kovener St. to Seymour Road.
•Preston Street from Moore to Coleman.
•Coleman from Preston St. to Seymour road.
•Seymour Road from Howard St. to Walnut St.

Scouts Seek Shoes For Camp

Crothersville Scout Troop 522 is collecting gently-used shoes.

Donations can be made at the troop meetings at the First Baptist Church gym in Crothersville on Tuesdays from 6-7:30 p.m.
Or shoes can be dropped off at:
The People’s Bank, Beauty From Ashes Tattoo, or Southern Smoke Shack in Crothersville; Racin’ Mason in Seymour; or Eagle Chiropractic or Foundations Medical Center in Austin.

I Guess That Is Why They are Called Comforters

by Curt Kovener

(This is an encore column from the Curt Comments archives.)
You had probably just finished reading your last Times of January on Wednesday evening, when I dismissed some mild stomach and queasiness as something I ate. But before long the stomach pains sharpened to occasional bolts of electricity of the 220 volt variety and I began to make frequent trips to the bathroom.
I had gotten a flu shot so I wasn’t concerned. Besides, I had planned a day in the woods clearing some trees and burning brush. Sitting at a computer most of the day, I figured working and exercising out-of-doors—even in cold temperatures—would do me some good. It would keep my mind off whatever was bothering my body and may even work it out of my system.
Sure enough, stacking and burning all afternoon and my mind didn’t wander to my stomach a single time.
But after the walk back from the work site, I was extremely worn out. By the time I dragged myself to the house I was tired and achy. Sitting on the couch a couple of shivers shook my weary body.
After another trip to the porcelain room, I came to the realization that some bug was definitely trying to wreck havoc with my body. The more I cursed my luck the more violently my chilled body shook and shivered.
I opened the antique oak blanket chest and got out Granny’s old comforter. It is a heavy, heavy bed cover pieced together with squares of recycled cloth.
There are pieces of my Gramp’s old suits, cut apart when they became worn out. There are pieces of flannel, corduroy, velveteen, and what appears to be some upholstery material all having former lives probably back as far as the early 20th century. Whatever it is stuffed with is certainly heavier than the usual quilting… perhaps a worn quilt or another comforter.
I was given the old comforter in the early 1980’s after Granny and Gramp has passed on. Granny left this life in 1967 so I know this comforter is old.
While I don’t remember her working on this particular one, as a youngster, I can recall my Granny sitting in her wooden rocking chair first cutting then pinning and finally stitching together bits of former suits, dresses, heavy curtains and robes to craft warm comforters for the kinfolks’ winter bedrooms.
These creations were like Dolly Parton’s Coat of Many Colors, “…I thought that we were rich, because I knew of all the love that she sewed in every stitch.”
We don’t use the comforter regularly in the winter. It is old, it is an heirloom; and we don’t want to risk damaging it. But Granny’s comforter is put to use for special occasions when we are feeling ill. Maybe it’s the warmth from its sheer weight or maybe it’s the grandmotherly love reaching across the years embracing us that helps keep us warm when we’re feeling particularly puny.
After sinking between flannel sheets topped with Granny’s Comforter, I shivered a couple time more and then drifted off to a deep sleep aided in part to a couple of shots of medicinal bourbon (sorry, Granny).
The next morning I awoke not feeling any chills, my stomach didn’t hurt, and no urgent need to hurry to the bathroom.
Maybe it was just a 24-hour bug, but I prefer to think that just maybe it was the healing power of Granny’s Comforter.

A person redeeming each tract or item of real property after the sale of the certificate must pay: (A) the amount of the minimum bid under Section 5 of IC 6-1.1-24 for which the tract or item of real property was last offered for sale; (B) ten percent (10%) of the amount for which the certificate is sold; (C) the attorney’s fees and costs of giving notice under IC 6-1.1-25-4.5; (D) the costs of a title search or of examining and updating the abstract of title for the tract or item of real property; (E) all taxes and special assessments on the tract or item of real property paid by the purchaser after the sale of the certificate plus interest at the rate of ten percent (10%) per annum on the amount of taxes and special assessments paid by the purchaser on the redeemed property; and (F), all costs of sale, advertising costs, and other expenses of the county directly attributable to the sale of the certificate.
If the certificate is sold for an amount more than the minimum bid under Section 5 of IC 6-1.1-24 for which the tract or item of real property was last offered for sale and the property is not redeemed, the owner of record of the tract or item of real property who is divested of ownership at the time the tax deed is issued may have a right to the tax sale surplus.
Indiana law prohibits a person who owes delinquent taxes, special assessments, penalties, interest, or costs directly attributable to a prior tax sale, from purchasing tracts or items of real property at a tax sale. Prior to bidding at a tax sale, each bidder must affirm under the penalties for perjury that he or she does not owe delinquent taxes, special assessments, penalties, interest, costs directly attributable to a prior tax sale, amounts from a final adjudication in favor of a political subdivision in this county, any civil penalties imposed for the violation of a building code or ordinance of this county, or any civil penalties imposed by a health department in this county. Further, each bidder must acknowledge that any successful bid made in violation of the above statement is subject to forfeiture. In the event of forfeiture, the bid amount shall be applied to the delinquent taxes, special assessments, penalties, interest, costs, judgments, or civil penalties of the ineligible bidder, and a certificate will be issued to the county executive.
The Commissioners specifically reserve the right to withhold from the sale any parcel which has been listed in error, or which otherwise becomes ineligible for sale either prior to the start or during the duration of the auction. The Auditor’s Office does not warrant the accuracy of the key numbers or street addresses published herein and any misstatement in the key number or street address does not invalidate an otherwise valid sale.
