Overdose Call For Help Sends 3 To Jail

A call for help for an overdoing man shortly after midnight last Wednesday, July 4, resulted in three Scott County residents booked into Scott County Jail on a variety of drug related charged.
Scott County sheriff’s deputies responded to a 911 call that Anthony Fortner, 46, of rural Scottsburg was overdoing. When authorities arrived they found Fortner unresponsive and not breathing. They administered Naloxone which counteracted the drugs Fortner took. Scott County EMS transported Fortner to Scott Memorial Hospital for additional treatment.
While treating Fortner, deputies observed syringes and crystal like substance that tested positive for methamphetamine on the unconscious man.
Two other people at the residence, Brian and Felecia King, were detained for questioning. Deputies searched the home and property and found a purse, a plastic bag tested positive for methamphetamine, pills, and a bag of marijuana. Police K-9 Cyrus was deployed and indicated the presence of an additional narcotic substance near a shrub.
The Kings were taken into custody at that time. Once Fortner was released from medical care, he was placed under arrest as well.
Fortner faces charges of maintaining common nuisance, possession of methamphetamine, possession of marijuana, possession of syringe,
Brian King, 39, of Scottsburg was charged with possession of methamphetamine, visiting common nuisance, possession of marijuana.
Felecia King, 41, of Nabb was charged with visiting common nuisance, possession of methamphetamine, possession of marijuana, possession of syringe, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of controlled substance.

It’s Now The Law; Don’t Cross The Color Purple

by Curt Kovener

As of July 1, Indiana landowners have a new way to mark property for no trespassing— with purple paint. This is good news for those of us who dwell in the wilderness.
Owners of private property are now be able to exchange damaged or stolen “No Trespassing” signs for a line of purple paint with the Purple Paint Law. This is according to the House Enrolled Act 1233 which allows Hoosiers to mark their property and prohibit trespassing by marking vertical purple paint lines on trees or fence posts.
The idea is to have a quick and easy fix for property owners besides putting up the normal “No Trespassing” signs. There are requirements to how the purple line must be placed though.
If you paint a purple line on a tree, that is the same as saying no trespassing. So you no longer have to post no trespassing signs. But it has to be visible and a purple line.
Purple painting property owners need be aware that some spray paint will fade over time. If marking a tree, you are painting a living thing. With growth and weather, the color made fade or change. Tree marking paint specifically designed for the forest industry may be a better, longer term bet. The law does not specify what shade or purple—violet, lilac, fuschia, deep purple.
The law says that any purple mark must be a vertical line of at least 8 inches in length. For trees, the bottom of the mark needs to be at least 3 feet but not more than 5 feet from the ground. Marked trees may not be more than 100 feet from the nearest other marked tree.
Purple marks can also be on any fence post as long as the mark covers at least the top 2 inches of the post. For fence posts, the bottom of the mark needs to be at least 3 feet but not more than 5 feet and 6 inches from the ground. A marked post cannot be more than 36 feet from the nearest other marked post.
Instead of putting up a sign, which can get ripped down, shot or destroyed in some other way, lawmakers think that by painting a purple line everybody will understand.
But will color blindness be a credible defense by trespassers?
Perhaps for urban dwellers, a new purple color scheme will be decorating the neighborhood.

Annual Drinking Water Quality Report
Crothersville Water Utility
July 2018

We’re pleased to present to you this year’s Annual Quality Water Report. This report is designed to inform you about the quality water and services we deliver to you every day. Our constant goal is to provide you with a safe and dependable supply of drinking water. We want you to understand the efforts we make to continually improve the water treatment process and protect our water resources. We are committed to ensuring the quality of your water. Our water source consists of three (3) wells ranging in depth from 64 to 85 feet and 16 to 42 inches in diameter. The wells are drilled into a confined aquifer.
We’re pleased to report that our drinking water is safe and meets federal and state requirements. No detected contaminants were found in our drinking water supply.
A complete copy of the 2018 Water Quality Report is on file and available for the public at Crothersville Town Hall.
If you have any questions concerning your water utility, please contact Crothersville Town Hall at 111 East Howard Street, Crothersville, Indiana. The telephone number is 812-793-2311. The facility is owned by the Town of Crothersville. Any questions or concerns can be directed to the following number: 812-793-2540 between the hours of 7:30 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. We want our valued customers to be informed about their water utility. If you want to learn more, please attend any of our regularly scheduled meetings. They are held on the first Tuesday of each month at the Town Hall beginning at 6:00 p.m.
The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs, and wells. As water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally-occurring minerals and, in some cases, radioactive material, and can pick up substances resulting from the presence of animals or from human activity. Contaminants that may be present in source water include:
•Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment plants, septic systems, agricultural livestock operations, and wildlife.
•Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally-occurring or result from urban storm runoff, industrial or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining or farming.
•Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, storm water runoff, and residential uses.
•Organic chemicals, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are by-products of industrial processes and petroleum production, and can also come from gas stations, urban storm water runoff, and septic systems.
•Radioactive materials, which can be naturally-occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining activities.
In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, EPA prescribes regulations that limit the amount of certain contaminants in water provided by public water systems. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations establish limits for contaminants in bottled water which must provide the same protection for public health. Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that the water poses a health risk. More information about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the Environmental Protection Agency’s Safe Drinking Water Hotline at (800) 426-4791.
Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immuno-compromised persons such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, some elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk from infections. These people should seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers. EPA/CDC guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by cryptosporidium and other microbiological contaminants are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800) 426-4791.
Special Note on Lead: If present, elevated levels of lead can cause serious health problems, especially for pregnant women and young children., Lead in drinking water is primarily from materials and components associated with service lines and home plumbing. Our system is responsible for providing high quality drinking water, but cannot control the variety of materials used in plumbing components. When your water has been sitting for several hours, you can minimize the potential for lead exposure by flushing your tap for 30 seconds to 21 minutes before using water for drinking or cooking. If you are concerned about lead in your water, you may wish to have your water tested. Information on lead in drinking water, testing methods, and steps you can take to minimize exposure is available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline or at http://www.epa.gov/safewater/lead
A complete review of all testing performed on our utilities water can be seen at the Crothersville Utility office, 111 East Howard Street, Crothersville, Indiana between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday and until noon on Wednesday. Crothersville Water Utility works to provide top quality water to every user. We ask that all our customers help us protect our water sources, so that Crothersville residents may enjoy a safe and healthy water supply.
Respectfully yours,
