When the students from Crothersville Junior-Senior High School return to classes in August, there will be a familiar face in a new position.

After the retirement of Crothersville Junior-Senior High Principal David Schill this past summer, the board of trustees has appointed Adam Robinson to serve as the school's new principal.

“I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you; to the School Board, Dr. Goodin, my fellow staff and students, and the community at large. It is a privilege to have been given this opportunity to serve this wonderful school and community. This school has been my home for more than twelve years now,” noted Robinson.

“I began my teaching career here in the summer of 2005, and it is the only school system I have ever known. I have the honor of being part of many lives and accomplishments by so many wonderful students and staff members,” added Robinson.

“Our school system is second to none. With our partnerships with C4, Scott County School District#1, Ivy Tech and Madison Special services Unit, we are able to offer our students the choices they could not get anywhere else. We offer big city opportunities, with a small town touch. Our staff is able to learn about their students, and help them individually in a way, which is admired by other school systems,” Robinson added.

“As the new principal, following in large footprints, I will do everything in my power to maintain and build upon the successes we had in the past. With high expectations and a healthy love and respect for this field, I know we will continue to do great things here at Crothersville,” Robinson concluded.

When the trooper got behind the tan Nissan Altima he noticed it matched the description of a vehicle that he had received information on a couple of days earlier that could be driven by or occupied by an escaped convict out of the state of Kentucky. As the trooper turned on his emergency lights the vehicle pulled into a driveway then it fled east on State Road #56.

An Austin reserve officer and his passenger were reported as slightly injured in a motorcycle crash on Little York Road recently.

The spill took place just before 4:30 p.m. as Raymond A. Richie, 55, and Dianna Richie were traveling west along the country road on Richie’s 2005 Yamaha motorcycle. The couple was passing an eastbound white bucket truck with a red boom that was filled with tree branches.

As the couple began to pass the truck, Richie said a four-foot-long piece of wood fell out of the truck. He hit the branch and the motorcycle went out of control, ending up in a roadside ditch just before the intersection with Finley Firehouse Road.

Dianna Richie experienced chest pain following the mishap. She had been wearing a helmet. Raymond Richie had unspecified injuries. Both went to Scott Memorial Hospital to be evaluated. They were released that evening.

Deputy Rodney Rudder actually passed the white truck as he sped toward the accident site. Now, the public is being asked to assist the Sheriff’s Department in locating the truck. Reportedly, several pieces of wood fell from the truck as it traveled Little York Road.

Anyone having any information about the truck or the driver is asked to call the Sheriff’s Department at 812-752-8400 or its 24-hour tip line at 812-752-7898.

Property damage from the mishap was estimated at up to $25,000 by the deputy.
