Jakota Bryair Jayden Gibson, Minor
Cause No. 36D02-1805-AD-00034
Eva Michelle Williams is hereby notified that a petition for adoption of child, named Jakota Bryiar Jayden Gibson, born to Eva Michelle Williams and Jeffery Allen Gibson on October 8, 2009, was filed in the office of the clerk of court, 220 E Walnut St, Brownstown, Indiana, 47220. The petition for adoption alleges that the consent to adoption of Jakota Bryiar Jayden Gibson is not required because the parent has abandoned or deserted the child for at least one (1) year immediately preceding the date of the filing of the petition for adoption and/or for the reason that the children have been in the custody of his mother for at least one (1) year when Eva Michelle Williams failed, without justifiable cause, to communicate significantly with the child when able to do so, and/or knowingly failed to provide for the care and support of the child when able to do so as required by law or judicial decree. If Eva Michelle Williams seeks to contest the adoption of the child, Jakota Bryair Jayden Gibson, she must file a motion to contest the adoption in accordance with IC 31-19-10-1 in the above named court not later than thirty (30) days after the date of service of this notice. If Eva Michelle Williams does not file a motion to contest the adoption within thirty (30) days after service of this notice the above named court will hear and determine the petition for adoption. The consent to adoption of Jakota Bryiar Jayden Gibson will be irrevocably implied and Eva Michelle Williams will lose the right to contest either the adoption or the validity of Eva Michelle Williams’s implied consent to the adoption. No oral statement made to Eva Michelle Williams relieves Eva Michelle Williams of Eva Michelle Williams’s obligations under this notice. This notice complies with IC 31-19-4.5-3 but does not exhaustively set forth a person’s legal obligations under the Indiana adoption statutes. A person being served with this notice should consult the Indiana adoption statutes.

Making A Late Appearance

Fall color is coming to southern Indiana considerably later than usual this season—fashionably late, if you will.
Tourist town Nashville in nearby Brown County has had crowds of disappointed visitors in mid-October met with still green leaves on trees.
Tinges of color and an occasional brilliantly hued tree, as this one at Muscatatuck National Wildlife Refuge, are beginning to decorate the Hoosier landscape.

25 Parcels Sell At Jackson County Delinquent Tax Sale For Over $720,000

8 Properties Don’t Sell; 3 In Crothersville

When the Jackson County delinquent property tax sale list was first advertised in September there were 129 parcels with back taxes owed. By the time last Monday’s tax sale began, that list had been pared down to 33 after property owners paid taxes owed prior to the sale.
Those 33 parcels owed a total of $311,664.28. Eight properties failed to obtain the minimum bid of taxes owed and three of those properties are in Crothersville.
Jackson County Auditor Kathy Hohenstreiter said she would be recommending to the county commissioners that they schedule a commissioners’ certificate sale for some time in March 2019. She said that a certificate sale will allow those parcels that did not receive the minimum bid of taxes owed to be auctioned for a minimum bid of $200.
The eight parcels that did not sell and the amount owed included:
•Unicell Paper Mills, 1220 W. Spring St., Brownstown; $195,341.08.
•Wanda F. Gilley, 621 Noble St., Seymour; $9,990.62.
•John Dale & Loretta Patterson, 828 Phillips Lane, Seymour; $15,894.84.
•Glenda Redleaf & Douglas Joseph, 3315 N. Sugar St., Norman; $4,113.82.
•Gary W. & Cheryl P Greathouse, 6668 Glendenning St., Freetown; $3,081.36.
•Louis B. & Leah Rusch, 302 W. Walnut St., Crothersville; $1,578.96.
•Paul & Penny Gay, 614 E. Bard St., Crothersville; $4,393.36.
•Grover Stacey, 208 E. Dixon St., Crothersville; $2,121.02.
There were nine successful bidders who paid a total of $720,261.83 for 25 parcels.
“The county is only interested in the taxes owed,” said county Treasurer Roger Hurt. “The amount paid over the taxes owed will go into a surplus tax sale fund.”
Hohenstreiter explained that those properties sold at the tax sale can be redeemed by their owners by paying the taxes plus 10% for up to the next six months; after that the interest increases to 15%. Upon redemption, the surplus paid by the successful bidder will be returned to that bidder.
Successful bidders included:
•Shammah Investments LLC of Connersville purchased two parcels.
•Clearleaf Short Alternative Fund LP of Louisville, KY purchased one parcel.
•Thomas Goecker of Seymour purchased one parcel.
•M&M Investment Group LLC of Cortland purchased seven parcels.
•Timber Street Investments LLC of Floyds Knobs purchased one parcel.
•Savvy IN LLC of New Orleans, LA purchased eight properties.
•Dale Ehringer of Norman purchased one parcel.

Seymour Road/Cindy Lane Sewer Bids Come In Under Estimate

Six contractors submitted bids for replacing an aging lift station and sewer lines along Seymour Road, Walnut Street and Collman Avenue on Crothersville’s northside recently.
King’s Trucking & Excavation was the apparent low bidder with a bid of $417,475, according to town engineer Brad Bender of FPBH of North Vernon & Seymour.
“It appears that once the contracts are signed (expected at the Nov. 5 town council meeting) the project is a go,” he said.
Other bidders were: Lawyer Excavation of Seymour, $430,637; Temple & Temple of Salem, $441,901; Dave O’Mara Contractor of North Vernon, $449,724; Mitchell & Stark of Medora, $626,097; and Milestone Contractors of Columbus, $698,988.
The engineers estimate for the project was $539,604, Bender said. The project will be funded, in part, by a grant from the Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs. The town will be participating with a $144,272 local match.
The work, when completed, will replace an aged sewer pumping station on Seymour Road which was believed to be installed in the mid-1960’s, the installation of 650’ of 4” force sewer line, and installation of 650’ of storm sewer lines in the area.
The area is one which experiences flooding and surface water infiltration into the sanitary sewer line.
Bender said testing of the area determined that most of the issues with flooding the lift station is not so much related to combined sewers but with storm water overtopping the sanitary sewer manholes.
“This work will allow us to divert the surface water away from the sanitary system,” said Bender. “And that should help the town continue with its CSO (Combined Sewer Overflow) compliance with IDEM.”
He said the design is to install eight storm water inlets along the proposed new storm sewer line to divert water from the sanitary sewer. “This will help alleviate the surge of water going into the sanitary sewer to be treated during heavy rains,” said Bender.
Much of the work would be constructed within the existing right of way along Seymour Road between Walnut and Coleman Streets.
The work when it starts will be quite intensive in the area as new storm water and sanitary sewer lines would need be installed and water lines, laterals, and possibly other utilities would need to be moved.
No start time for the construction was yet available.

Election Prompts Early Town Council Meeting
