Beginning on Monday December 22, there will be a change in the traffic pattern on the north Green River Road reconstruction between Millersburg Road and Kansas Road. Traffic will be diverted to the newly constructed outside lanes of the Green River Road project between English Way and Rathbone Drive.
This will be done so that the existing road can be removed and reconstructed to match the new road. This will limit access to all driveways along this section of the road to right turns in and out of the drives. No left turn access will be allowed at any driveways. Left turns and U-turns will only be allowed at street intersections. These intersections are Surrey Way, Huntington Place, Windham Drive, Capehart Street. Full access will eventually be allowed at Kansas Road, but some additional construction will be required before turns can be allowed at that intersection. A follow up notice will be sent once Kansas Road is fully opened.
This traffic pattern will continue until late spring or early summer. Once this phase of the construction is finished, additional changes will be required so that the final paving and striping of the road can be completed.
Deputy Todd Dedmond and Deputy Mark Gilles recently took a group of Oak Hill School students to Walmart to shop for Christmas presents. The "Karing for Kids" trip was sponsored by Huck's convenience store and funded through customer donations. Thanks to Dave and Nancy Clements and Principle Lisa Shanks for making this possible!

EVANSVILLE – Josh J. Minkler, Acting United States Attorney, announced today that Charles M. Prideaux, 47, Evansville, Indiana, was sentenced to 60 months in prison by Chief U.S. District Judge Richard L. Young for possession of sexually explicit material involving minors. This case was the result of an investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Child Exploitation Task Force and the Evansville Police Department.
“Protecting our innocent children from internet predators will remain a top priority of our office,” said Minkler. “Distributing pornography re-victimizes our children every time it is passed from one person to another.”
Prideaux pleaded guilty to the charge immediately before being sentenced yesterday. Prideaux admitted that he used a laptop computer to search for and download child pornography using file sharing software that he loaded on to the computer system. Prideaux operated the computer from his residence in Evansville, Indiana, before the computer was seized by law enforcement investigators on November 1, 2012.
Evansville Police are seeking information that will help them find 49 year old Lisa G Hoff. Hoff was reported missing this week. She is 5'2", 107lbs. She has brown hair and green eyes.
Anyone with information about Hoff is asked to call EPD at 436-7979 or 911.

National Weather Service: A light wintry mix of precipitation is possible late tonight and early Thursday morning.
Incoming precipitation overnight will be light, falling generally as little to no impact rain or light snow. However, as temperatures cool overnight some pockets of a wintry mix of light sleet or freezing rain may mix in with the precipitation at times but should have little to no impact on roadways.
The primary effect will be on untreated roadways or elevated surfaces that dip to freezing and have residual moisture on the ground allowing for isolated slick patches to develop. No widespread hazardous weather is anticipated at this time.
