Gary M. Rutherford, 47, of West Walnut Street was charged by Crothersville Office Matt Browning with possession of methamphetamine, possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia in the latest incident.
Browning reported he was asked by Jackson County Corrections Officer James Woods for assistance during a home visit at the Rutherford residence.
Browning said that when Rutherford answered the door he seemed nervous about the visit. During a routine pat-down by the correction officer a plastic container was found in Rutherford’s shirt pocket.
Woods removed the container and asked Rutherford what was in it. Rutherford replied, “I don’t know.”
Browning said he opened the container and observed two small plastic bags with a powdery substance.
When officer Woods asked Rutherford what the substance was he replied that it was methamphetamine. “But I don’t know how it got into my pocket,” Rutherford told police. “Someone must have put it there with me knowing.”
In a search of Rutherford’s home marijuana was found under a shelf in the kitchen and rolling papers along with some marijuana seeds.
Browning reported that a metal tube with white powdery residue was found on the kitchen counter.
Rutherford was booked into Jackson County Jail at 8:40 p.m. where he is being held on a $2005 bond.
A female visitor at Rutherford’s residence was questioned but not charged with any offenses.

Pursuant to IC 6-1.1-24-5.1, a business entity that seeks to register to bid in an Indiana Commissioners’ Certificate Sale must provide a certificate of good standing or proof of registration in accordance with IC 5-23 from the Secretary of State to the county treasurer.
A person redeeming each tract or item of real property after the sale of the certificate must pay: (A) the amount of the minimum bid under Section 5 of IC 6-1.1-24 for which the tract or item of real property was last offered for sale; (B) ten percent (10%) of the amount for which the certificate is sold; (C) the attorney’s fees and costs of giving notice under IC 6-1.1-25-4.5; (D) the costs of a title search or of examining and updating the abstract of title for the tract or item of real property; (E) all taxes and special assessments on the tract or item of real property paid by the purchaser after the sale of the certificate plus interest at the rate of ten percent (10%) per annum on the amount of taxes and special assessments paid by the purchaser on the redeemed property; and (F), all costs of sale, advertising costs, and other expenses of the county directly attributable to the sale of the certificate.

Indiana law prohibits a person who owes delinquent taxes, special assessments, penalties, interest, or costs directly attributable to a prior tax sale, from purchasing tracts or items of real property at a tax sale. Prior to bidding at a tax sale, each bidder must affirm under the penalties for perjury that he or she does not owe delinquent taxes, special assessments, penalties, interest, costs directly attributable to a prior tax sale, amounts from a final adjudication in favor of a political subdivision in this county, any civil penalties imposed for the violation of a building code or ordinance of this county, or any civil penalties imposed by a health department in this county.

The Commissioners 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 the start or during the duration of the auction. The Auditor’s Office does not warrant the accuracy of the key numbers or street addresses published herein and any misstatement in the key number or street address does not invalidate an otherwise valid sale.

It’s Made Out Of WHAT?!?!?

Curt-lineby Curt Kovener
Knowledge is power but sometimes things are best left unknown. My ‘Bathroom Book Of Lists’ (and maybe THAT is more information than you want to know) listed how some frequently used foods are processed for human consumption.
Gelatin: Used as a thickener in foods like Jell-O and marshmallows, gelatin is collagen, the protein found in connective tissue. It is not made from horns and hooves, as is often thought. Pig and cattle bones and skin are broken down in hot water or acid and then dried, refined and purified into gelatin. For use as a thickener, gelatin is ground into granules or powder.
Imitation Crabmeat: Found most frequently at Chinese buffets, fake crabmeat is mainly fish, usually Pollock that is cleaned, minced, mixed with starch, salt, a bit of real crabmeat, egg white and flavoring. Then the mixture is ground into a paste, which is pressed into sheets and cooked. To give it that crabby look, the skeets are cut into thin strands and then colored. Then the genuine imitation faux crabmeat is cooked again and vacuum packed for your favorite restaurants to prepare.
Bologna: Supermarket bologna earns its ‘mystery meat’ reputation. The process begins with unused bits of beef, pork, and sometimes poultry. Which bits is the mystery. But the mystery bits get ground up and liquefied into a paste and a blend of secret spices are added. The pasty concoction is extruded into a casing, then boiled or smoked, sliced and packaged for your favorite sandwich or pickling for a masculine meaty treat with beer.
Evaporated and Condensed Milk: To extend the shelf life of milk, it is ‘evaporated’ through pasteurization by putting it in a pressure lower than atmospheric pressure (vacuum) container and then boiled. This vacuum evaporation process concentrates the milk to 30%-40% solids which delays the spoiling. Then it is homogenized to keep the cream from separating and sealed into cans. The difference between evaporated and condensed milk is that the later has lots of sugar added. Which makes it great for holiday candy making…if you can get past the fact that the former fresh milk from a cow may be a year old before you use it.
Jawbreakers: The main ingredient is granulated sugar. It is poured into a round kettle that rotates over heat. The second ingredient— liquid sugar— is added into the rotating heated kettle. It sticks to the granulated sugar and little balls of sweetness begin to form. More liquid sugar is added periodically over then next several days—sometimes up to 100 coats— into the rotating kettle. When the jawbreakers are near full size, color and flavor (such as cinnamon oil) are added. Finally the now hard sugar balls are spun with a foodgrade wax and placed into bags for your candy store or grocery’s shelf.
SPAM: Once short for SPiced hAM, only about 10% of the product is actually ham. The other 90% is pork shoulder, Hormel®, which has made Spam since the 1930’s says it’s short for Shoulder of Pork and hAM. The meat is ground, then dropped below freezing before secret spices are added along with sodium nitrite…a preservative that give the product its pick color. It is mixed in a machine with an airtight seal to keep the amount of water being released low. The uncooked mixture is plopped into cans which are sealed and then the entire can is cooked in hot water.
Over 122 million cans of Spam are sold every year.
After reading all of this, maybe you, like me, will conclude it is appropriate such information be found in a Bathroom Book of Lists.

Crothersville Police Arrest 3 on Drug Related Charges

Crothersville Police arrested three area men in two separate drug related incidents on Sunday, Jan. 22.
Receiving an anonymous tip Officer Matt Browning observed what he believed was illegal drug activity at Village Apartments on South Armstrong Street in Crothersville.
Browning said as he pulled into the apartment parking lot around 6:30 p.m. he observed two individuals in a maroon pickup. The driver of the vehicle was Joshua D. Gay, 32, of Scottsburg and Rowdy Deaton, 27, of Crothersville was in the passenger seat, Browning reported.

The officer said as he had both occupants exit the vehicle and he said he observed a digital scales with some powdery substance on the vehicle floorboard. Browning placed Gay and Deaton in handcuffs and searched the truck for weapons. During the search he reported he found a prescription bottle with no label containing 2 and a half pills.
Browning reported Gay said Deaton brought the bottle into the vehicle from the apartments. Crothersville Chief of Police Brent Turner went to Deaton’s mother’s apartment and was told that Deaton had taken the pills bottle from her.
Gay told authorities that when the police car pulled into the parking lot, Deaton began throwing the paraphernalia into Gay’s lap telling him “I can’t get caught with anything.”
Browning reported he also found small squares of aluminum foil, two with a light brown powdery substance which, after testing, was later learned to be heroin.

Browning charged Deaton with possession of a narcotic, dealing a narcotic, violation of the Legend Drug Act and theft of medication
Gay was arrested for driving while suspended.
Both were booked into the Jackson County Jail in Brownstown.
Browning also arrested on Sunday Brent James Baker, 27, of Austin on charges of dealing or possessing a look-a-like substance and possession of a syringe.
Browning reported he saw a car backed into a parking spot at the Crothersville Library at 110 S. Armstrong Street. The male passenger acted rather nervous and spoke in a manner that Browning thought was odd. Browning asked him if he used any illegal drugs. “He said ‘Yes, I did about 5 hours ago. I used aderol and heroin’,” Browning wrote in the incident report.
Browning reported that as Baker stepped off the curb, a small plastic bag fell from his pants.

Brent James Baker

“I asked him what was in the baggie and he replied rock salt,” Browning wrote in his report. “I asked him why he had it on him and he said he didn’t know because the pants he was wearing weren’t his.”
Baker later confided that he intended to sell the rock salt in small plastic baggies. A search of the vehicle turned up three syringes, Browning reported.
Baker was booked into the Jackson County Jail. The driver of the vehicle was not charged.
Anyone wanting to report suspicious activity in Crothersville can call the local tip line at 812-793-2196. Callers may remain anonymous, said Chief Brent Turner
