Crothersville Police Charge 5 With Drug Offenses After Traffic Stop

Five area residents face a variety of drug related charges after the vehicle in which they were riding was stopped for a traffic violation on Bethany Road in Crothersville.
According to Capt. J.L. McElfresh, on Monday, Sept. 4, around 10:15 p.m., Crothersville Reserve Officer Mike Weiler made a traffic stop on a vehicle for an equipment violation.
Weiler reported, “As I came to the intersection of Kovener and West Main Streets I saw a silver Chevrolet Aveo westbound on Main. I observed the vehicle with a very dim left tail light and no right tail light and no license plate light.”
Weiler said he followed the sub-compact vehicle, noting it had six occupants, to South Bethany Road where the driver failed to stop for the stop sign.
After turning on his emergency lights, Weiler reported the driver pulled into a driveway 105 S. Bethany Rd and fled on foot. The other five occupants of the vehicle were detained during the investigation.
The reserve officer reported during the investigation seeking the identity of the driver, drug paraphernalia, marijuana, and a syringe were located.
Officers were not able to locate the suspected driver, 20 year-old Logan Chase Roger.
The other occupants were arrested and taken to the Jackson County Jail. The following is the names and charges for those arrested:
•Kaylie Amber Jewell Mullins, 19, of Austin for visiting common nuisance
•Damon Wayne Hines, 48, of Scottsburg for possession of controlled substance and visiting common nuisance
•Jeffrey Kevin Powell, 19, of Tampico for visiting common nuisance and possession of marijuana
•Lora Mae Johnson, 43, of Brownstown for visiting common nuisance
•Alexus Gabriell Smith, 20, of Crothersville for visiting common nuisance, possession of paraphernalia, and possession of syringe.
During questioning that evening, Mullins told Officer Matt Browning that Alexus Smith had shoved what she thought was meth down the front of her pants. Browning then questioned Smith about what she shoved down her pants.
According to Weiler, “Alexus stated that she had put a ‘rig’ down her pants. Officer Browning asked what a rig was and she stated it was a syringe.”
Officer Browning asked her to remove the syringe and place it on the ground.
According to Jail commander Charlie Murphy, during the booking process jail officers found a toradol tablet and a suboxone strip in Hines pants pocket resulting him being charged with possession of a controlled substance.
Weiler and Browning were assisted at the scene by:
Crothersville Officer Chris Cooper, Chief of Police Brent Turner, and Reserve Officer Travis McElfresh.

Main Street Circle Residents Want Street Lights

It was standing room only last Tuesday for the monthly Crothersville Town Council meeting as residents of Main Street Circle filled the town hall seeking street lights and paving.
Main Street Circle at the eastern end of Main Street is the town’s most recent housing development established in 2001. At the time, developer Paul Scholl provided the, then, town board with plans to develop the empty field with up to 27 new homes.
However, before the subdivision was completed, the developer died.
Jim Martin, of 621 Main Street Circle, acted as spokesman for the group of about 20 residents.
“We’re here tonight to ask the town to accept the street so it can be paved and to install street lights,” he said. “Without street lighting the area is dark at night for the 23 children who reside in the neighborhood.”
He said to provide some level of safety, residents leave their porch lights on.
While supportive of the residents concerns, town council president Lenvel ‘Butch’ Robinson said more research needed to be done to determine if developer plans were approved by a previous council and if utilites and the street were installed to those specifications.
“This is something that happens frequently in small communities,” said town engineer Brad Bender. “Developers developing property, don’t finish, and there is no bond to cover any incompletion.”
Town attorney Jeff Lorenzo added that developers should post a performance bond at the start of beginning a development and after the utilities and streets are completed post a maintenance bond for three years before the governmental entity accepts the utilities as a part of the town system.
However, frequently small communities are so excited about new houses being built, those future legalities are overlooked or ignored in an effort to support additional residents coming to the community.
The council told the Main Street Circle crowd that they would study the matter, perhaps do some engineering tests, and have an answer on street, utility and street lights at their October meeting.
The council approved second reading of an ordinance to make it a fineable offense to mow grass and leave the resulting clippings in town streets. A public notice of the ordinance is found on page 6 of this edition of the Times.
“Grass clippings, leaves and other yard waste left in the streets and ditches cause a problem by clogging drains,” said Robinson. “The town has recently made great expense on improving storm water drainage and we don’t want that money to be wasted by yard waste plugging drains and culverts.”
The town determined that a significant portion of the debris in the streets results from residents leaving grass clippings, leaves and yard waste in streets when property maintenance is performed.
Residents who contract with a lawn mowing service are still responsible if the mowing contractor doesn’t clean clippings from the streets or alleys.
The first offense will result in a $20 fine, 2nd offense will cost $40; a third time will mean an $80 fine and any fourth or subsequent offense will cost the property owner $100.
In other matters, town engineer Brad Bender informed the council that the stormwater grant project has begun and that replacing three culverts in the west side of town will result in some traffic disruption.
Bethany Road will be closed approximately 10 days from Sept. 18-28 for the replacement of a larger box culvert to improve storm water drainage into Hominy Ditch.
He said after the Bethany Road culvert is installed and the street re-opened, culverts over Park and Kovener Streets will be replaced closing both of those streets at the same time for about 20 days while work is completed.

140 Parcels On County Delinquent Property Tax Sale List

According to a public notice ad beginning on page 3 of the print edition of the Crothersville Times and online under Public Notices, there are 140 parcels of property with delinquent taxes that could be sold at an auction at the courthouse on Friday, Oct. 27, beginning at 10 a.m.
Real estate on which property taxes have not been paid for 18 months are eligible to be offered for sale by the county for back taxes.
During the October auction, properties will be offered for late taxes and auction fees with a minimum beginning bid.
After the auction, the property owners have up to a year to ‘redeem’ or pay the successful bidder for his bid plus interest.
In the first six months, to redeem a property an owner must pay 10% of the minimum bid and 5% per annum for any bid amount over the minimum bid. After six months, the interest goes to 15%.
In this day of less than 1% savings accounts and 3% CD’s, many investors participate in tax sales as a way to earn better returns on their money.
Residents interested in bidding on the tax sale should register online at
Bidders should arrive the morning of the tax sale at least 30 minutes before the beginning time to be assured to receive your bid number before the start of the sale.
Bidders should bring their registration form and W9 form with you the morning of the tax sale. You will be able to print these forms from the registration web site, according to Jackson County Treasurer Roger Hurt.
Residents with property on the delinquent property tax list have until the day of the auction to pay the back taxes and have the property removed from the auction’s sale list.

Public Notices

9:13 School CPF Adoption


Taxpayers, property owners and other interested parties in the Town of Crothersville, Indiana (“Town”) are hereby notified that the Town Council adopted an ordinance regulating yard waste on September 5, 2017. The ordinance contains fines and penalties for violations. The effective date of the ordinance is September 6, 2017.
The Town Council makes the following findings:
The deposit and accumulation of grass clippings, leaves and other yard waste upon and into the streets of the Town have created a public problem by increasing the amount of waste and debris in the streets, making the Town less visually attractive, and increasing pollution and run-off into the Town’s storm sewers; and
The Town has recently made great expenses on storm water drainage and does not wish for its new infrastructure investment to be degraded by run-off of yard waste; and
A significant portion of the run-off and debris in the streets results from persons intentionally dumping or placing grass clippings, leaves and yard waste in the Town Streets; and
The current ordinances and procedures have failed to abate the dumping of waste into the streets.
It shall be unlawful for any person to knowingly cause grass clippings, leaves, or other debris or waste produced in conjunction with yard maintenance or gardening onto the streets, alleys, and other public ways of the Town of Crothersville.
In addition, a property owner is responsible to ensure that any persons hired to cut their grass or maintain their yard abide by this ordinance. Any grass or waste which inadvertently is caused to enter the streets or alleys of the Town shall be promptly removed.
This ordinance may be enforced by the Police Department or Street Department. A violation of this ordinance shall initially be sanctioned by the civil penalty method set forth in Section 4.
There shall be a presumption that grass clippings, leaves or yard waste immediately adjacent to a property where caused to be placed there by property owner. This is a rebuttable presumption.
A violation of this Ordinance shall constitute a civil penalty punishable by a fine in the following amounts:
First Offense: $20.00
Second Offense: $40.00
Third Offense: $80.00
Fourth Offense: $100.00
Fifth and Subsequent Offenses:$100.00
Enforcement shall be as follows:
A member of the Police Department or the Street Department shall first provide the property owner (and tenant it is a rental property) with a written warning. The failure to remove grass clippings, yard or garden waste, leaves, etc. from the streets, alleys or other public ways within 24 hours after the written warning shall result in the issuance of the citation for a violation of this ordinance.
The failure to remove grass clippings, yard or garden waste, leaves, etc. from the streets, alleys or other public ways after a citation is issued shall result in the Town doing so.
The Town shall bill the property owner for the cost of its services at the normal hourly rates of the employees performing the work. The property owner’s failure to pay this amount shall result in a lien against the real estate to be added to the tax rolls.
A summons, similar in form to a parking summons, shall be tendered by the enforcing officer to the property on and/or the tenant if it is a rental property. The summons shall be paid at the Town Office within five (5) days.
Fines collected from the enforcement of this ordinance shall be divided equally between the Street Department and the Police – Tickets budget category line items by the Clerk-Treasurer.
ADOPTED BY THE TOWN COUNCIL this 5th day of September 2017.
The complete version of the ordinance is available for examination and copying at the office of the Clerk-Treasurer at the Town Hall of the Town of Crothersville, 111 East Howard Street, Crothersville, Indiana 47229 during normal business hours.

No property listed below shall be sold if, at any time before the sale, the Total Amount for Judgment is paid in full. If the real property is sold in the tax sale, the amount required to redeem such property will be 110% of the minimum bid for which the tract or real property was offered at the time of sale, if redeemed not more than six (6) months after the date of sale, or 115% of the minimum bid for which the tract or real property was offered at the time of sale, if redeemed more than six (6) months after the date of sale, plus the amount by which the purchase price exceeds the minimum bid on the real property plus five percent (5%) per annum interest on the amount by which the purchase price exceeds the minimum bid on the property.

If the tract or item of real property is sold for an amount more than the minimum bid and the property is not redeemed, the owner of record of the property who is divested of ownership at the time the tax deed is issued may have a right to the tax sale surplus.
The Auditor and Treasurer 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 10/27/2017 or during the duration of the sale.
This notice of real property tax sale, and the tax sale itself are undertaken and will be conducted pursuant to the requirements of the laws of the State of Indiana which regulate the sale of land for delinquent taxes, pursuant to I.C. 6-1.1-24-1 et seq.
The County does not warrant the accuracy of the street address or common description of the property, and a misstatement in the key number or street address does not invalidate an otherwise valid sale.
Minimum bid amounts are prescribed by law and are subject to change prior to the auction date.
Pursuant to IC 6-1.1-24-3(e), property descriptions may be omitted for properties appearing on the certified list in consecutive years. A complete property list may be obtained at or in an alternative form upon request.

We Don’t Even Rank In The Top 10

by Curt Kovener

Harvey hammered Houston now as of this writing Irma is trying to blow Florida away. Who knows as we go down the alphabet what additional national disasters may befall us.
Old Testament believers might say that God is smiting this nation. But contemporary church goers might say since we are a Christian nation founded on religious principals, the Almighty would not do that. But perhaps that is a topic for another column another time.
Despite the property damage, displacement of people and death around the Gulf Coast, America doesn’t rank in the top nine for world wide killer natural disasters.
#9 On Jan. 12, 2010 a 7.0 magnitude earthquake struck Haiti. More than 1.5 million people lost their homes. There were 200,000 killed and thousands more from the cholera epidemic that broke out afterwards.
#8 On Christmas Day 2004 a 9.0 magnitude earthquake in the Indian Ocean off the coast of Sumatra resulted in tsunami waves up to 50 feet tall which struck 11 countries resulting in the death of 226,000.
#7 An earthquake in China in 1920 killed half the population of Haiyuan. Final death toll: 230,000.
#6 A cyclone (hurricane) struck the Ganges River Delta in India on Oct. 11, 1737 then moved inland 200 miles dumping 15 inches of rain in six hours killing 300,000.
#5 On Nov. 11, 1970, a cyclone struck at Bhola, Banladesh laying waste to the country and killing an estimate 350,000.
#4 Eight-five percent of the buildings were destroy in the city of Tangshan, China on July 28, 1976 when a 7.8 magnitude earthquake occurred injuring more than a million people and killing 240,000.
#3 An 8.0 magnitude earthquake shook Shaanxi, China on Jan. 23, 1556 collapsing every single building and killing 830,000.
#2 The river called “China’s Sorrow” earned its name in 1887 when the Huang Le River flooded over half million square miles of land filling 11 cities and villages with water leaving 2 million homeless and 900,000 dead.
The #1 killer natural disaster occurred in 1931 in Southern China. Rivers were already swollen from spring precipitation when torrential rains fell causing the Yangtze and Yellow Rivers to overflow their banks wiping out crops and the resulting standing water became contaminated. The combination of events led to starvation and outbreaks of typhoid and dysentery resulting in the deaths of 3.7 million people.
Most of those countries at the time were financially overwhelmed by the devastation or did not have any disaster assistance available.
You may be curious to know that members of the Republican Congressional delegation from Texas who voted against more funding for damage done in along the east coast by Hurricane Sandy in 2012 now support more funding for the Federal Emergency Management Agency for their home state in 2017.
We should all hope that those who want to “Make America Great Again” have it in their conscience to help those Americans who become smitten by the Almighty.
