Scottsburg Industrial Site Receives Development Designation

The Office of Community and Rural Affairs joined officials from the Scott County Economic Development Corporation and the City of Scottsburg last Thursday to announce the designation of the Smith Farm – South Main Industrial Park, as Indiana Site Certified Prime.
The 155 acre Smith Farm site is located in the City of Scottsburg and could be used for either warehousing, light manufacturing and/or heavy manufacturing facilities.
The Indiana Site Certified program validates sites that are ready for economic development. The Prime designation equates to a location that is no more than 2.5 miles from a state highway and has completed an archaeological investigation. In addition, the local unit of government, lead economic development organization or regional economic development corporation must own the property or an option must be held with the owner.
“We recognize a lot of dedication and collaboration is utilized in order to earn a site certified designation, especially Prime,” said Jodi Golden, Executive Director of OCRA. “I commend the Scott County Economic Development Corporation and their local partners for working together to make the Smith Farm site ready for development.”
Indiana Site Certified is administered by OCRA in partnership with the state’s Fast Access Site Team, which is comprised of multiple state agencies. These include the Indiana Department of Transportation, Indiana Department of Environmental Management, Department of Natural Resources and the Indiana Economic Development Corporation.

Here’s Where We Need Armed Guards

President Donald Trump offered a solution.
He was headed to Indianapolis for the National FFA Convention last month when the latest national tragedy unfurled: an anti-Semite and racist named Robert Bowers burst into the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh and started firing an automatic weapon.
In the end 11 people were killed, ranging in age from 54 to 97. Police told Pittsburgh station KDKA-TV that Bowers yelled something when he stormed inside: “All Jews must die!” Bowers pleaded not guilty in federal court on Friday.
Trump expressed condolences offering up the traditional national tragedy response of “thoughts and prayers” and then off-handedly remarked that there was something that could have prevented multiple people from getting slaughtered.
If there had been armed guards, he suggested, maybe this could have been avoided. “They had no protection,” Trump said.
The “armed guards” defense is a common refrain from conservatives and gun rights activists after mass shootings. (In this country, they get to say it a lot.)
I’ve have disagreed with them in the past, but maybe they have a point.
In order for us to be safe in America and around the world, all we have to do is put armed guards at:
•Synagogues
•Churches
•Mosques
•Grocery stores
•Las Vegas concerts
•Movie theaters
•Office complexes
•Elementary schools
•Middle schools
•High schools
•Colleges
•Nightclubs
•Strip clubs
•Restaurants
•Jewish community centers
•Newspaper offices
•Military bases
•Neighborhoods
•Homes

IN RE THE ADOPTION OF
Jakota Bryair Jayden Gibson, Minor
Cause No. 36D02-1805-AD-00034
NOTICE OF ADOPTION
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.
