Three Austin Men Charged After Drug Investigation

An investigation that began in mid-February ended last Thursday, April 20, with the arrest of three Austin area men, according to ISP Sgt. Jerry Goodin.
In late February, Indiana State Police and Austin City Police investigated an anonymous tip of drug activity at a residence on Fourth Street in Austin
When authorities at that time went to the address on Fourth Street, they located Jeffrey ‘Darin’ Hanner and two other male subjects in a vehicle parked with the engine running behind the home.
After speaking to the occupants of the vehicle, police located methamphetamine, digital scales and cash. The evidence was taken into custody. Warrants from Scott Circuit Court were issued Tuesday for the three men.
On Thursday afternoon, April 20 troopers from ISP and officers from the Austin City Police Department went to a Cypress Street residence in Austin looking for Jeffrey ‘Darin’ Hanner, 45, from Water Tower Road northeast of Austin.
Officers located Hanner at the residence and after a short foot pursuit he was apprehended and taken into custody charged with possession of methamphetamine, dealing methamphetamine, resisting law enforcement and criminal trespass.
Also charged in connection with the February investigation were:
Jesse Eversole, 40, of Dana Lane, Austin, charged with visiting a common nuisance.
Joseph Riley, 40, of Main Street, Austin, charged with visiting a common nuisance. Goodin said the arrest warrant was served on him in the Scott County Jail where he was incarcerated on other charges at the time the warrant was issued.
All three men were incarcerated at Scott County Jail.

I Don’t Mean To Bore You But…

Curt-lineby Curt Kovener

(This week’s column is an encore offering from the Curt Comment archives.)
Have you ever noticed how diametrically opposed we sometimes speak?
When someone says, “Not to change the subject, but…” what is the next thing they do? They change the subject.
And when someone says “I don’t want to start an argument, but…” whereupon an intense, heated discussion of opinions erupts.
Then there are times when you may engrossed in some activity—reading, watching TV, working on the computer—and a spouse, child, parent, sibling comes to you saying “I don’t want to disturb you but…” and then what is said disturbs you.
Or worse, when others say, “Now I don’t want to make you mad, but…” and of course the blood pressure begins to rise.
And when you hear “I don’t mean to criticize, but…” you’d better quickly put on your thick skin.
While sitting in the plethora of public meetings we’ve covered over the years, I’ve learned that whenever the speaker says, “I don’t mean to belabor the point, but…” he/she then drones on for another period of time obviously enjoying the sound of his/her voice while the dead horse is beaten further.
And when it comes down to you and a member of the boss’ family who are vying for a promotion, when the boss says, “I don’t mean to play favorites, but…” you shouldn’t count on any increase in your paycheck.
And when your soon-to-be ex-best friend says, “I don’t mean to be too personal, but…” I am sure they will eventually understand why you no longer accept their telephone calls.
And as for this week’s column, “I don’t mean to take up your time, but…”
