??  ?    The quintessential end to a long summer is being planned by organizers of the annual Pig Roast in the Park, set
for Friday and Saturday, August 8 and 9, in Beechwood Park in Scottsburg.
    Pig Roast in the Park is a festival that offers a casual, enjoyable experience to those who visit. There will be booths
offering arts and crafts and festival-type fare. Plenty of tournaments are scheduled to start that Friday in softball,
horseshoes, volleyball and tennis. Games for children are slated as well. A gospel sing is set for that Friday night,
while Saturday will offer the annual Scott County American Idol competition as well as hog-calling and watermelon
eating contests. A euchre tournament is also scheduled on Saturday for the public’s enjoyment.
    Of course, folks will come to buy pulled pork barbecue dinners on August 9, and everyone will be able to buy
chances throughout the Pig Roast in the Park to win the miniature Kids House log cabin that appeals to both
children and adults and is now on display at the Scottsburg Wal-Mart Super Center. Tickets are one for $2; three for
$5; eight for $10; and 20 for $20.

???    For the second time this year, emergency vehicles responded to calls of a fatal accident on Interstate 65 between Scottsburg and Austin that involved a vehicle crossing the grassy median and striking a semi-tractor-trailer.
    This time, the mishap occurred just south of the Austin interchange late Monday morning, July 21. A woman motorist, identified as Deborah Gunn, 55, Pekin, was headed south on I-65 on a clear morning around 11:45 a.m. when her silver-colored 1996 Ford Taurus suddenly crossed the median and struck the left rear tandems of a northbound semi-tractor operated by Kenneth J. Yeadon, 55, Mooresville.
    Yeadon, who was not injured in the accident, apparently saw the car crossing and slowed and then tried to avoid contact by going nearly off the road. Nothing worked; the car went under the rear trailer and disintegrated as the truck continued north.

?    A total of nine suspects were placed under arrest by Indiana State Police in connection with a probation check last Thursday afternoon, July 17.
    A local probation officer accompanied by ISP troopers went to the home on East McClain Avenue to perform a probation check on the occupant, Michelle R. Brewer, 38.
    In the search of Brewer’s residence, methamphetamine was discovered under a bed and in a bathroom, the probable cause affidavit prepared by Master Trooper Barry Brown indicated. Under three grams of the illegal substance was seized.
    Additionally, M/Trp. Brown stated paraphernalia was found as well as a quantity of pills, all of which officers said were controlled substances. Brewer was placed under arrest and transported to the Scott County Security Center.
    Then, things got rather interesting for the officers.
