A rural Petersburg man was injured Saturday morn- ing when he crashed into a deer while riding his motor- cycle on Highway 56, west of Petersburg. James Goodrid, 32, of Pe- tersburg, suffered head lac- erations and a broken arm at about 10 a.m. Chief Deputy Sheriff Dal- las Killian said Pike Coun- ty central dispatch received a call from a homeowner in the area saying Goodrid had staggered into his residence asking for help. Goodrid was riding a 2011 Harley Davidson when he hit the deer near 9625 W. SR 56. He was transported by Pike County EMS to the hospital. JD Goodrid injured in deer-motorcycle crash scheduled to be let for bids on October 9 so construc- tion could start this fall. When the historic bridge is moved to Petersburg, the Charger Bridge will be re- moved and new abutments will be constructed. It was noted Pike County has to spend the above ap- propriations and then they will be reimbursed. Auditor Judy Gumbel said the county's new computer server has been installed and is up and running. She told the council Eck Mundy did the work on July 4 so it would not cause a disruption in the courthouse. "It was pretty seamless, just a few hiccups with the software." Commissioner Assistant Kristi Dischinger said Ben- ner and Co. will be install- ing a cooling system for the room where the server is located. It was determined that room was already warm because of limited ventila- tion and with the addition of the server putting off heat, it would need to be cooled. "Did you get the umbrel- la installed? " asked Council president Greg Willis. "It isn't an umbrella, but it will be a large pan type thing to keep water off of it," said Dischinger. In the previous meeting, she said there are larger wa- ter pipes that run through the room above where the server is located. She sug- gested they get something to cover it so if the pipes leak the server will be protected. Councilmen also voted 7-0 to approve an additional ap- propriation of $15,000 to pay for half of the purchase price of a new car for the Sheriff's Department. Sheriff Kent Johnson said they can use commis- sary money to pay the oth- er half of the price of a new car. He said it is for the new School Resource Officer at the schools. In other business, the council also approved the E- 911 Director being elevated to the same status as a de- partment head. Councilman Jon Craig, who serves on the county emergency management committee, said the com- mittee determined it would be better to have E-911 Di- rector David Capehart in charge of the E-911 Center and have it operate as a sep- arate entity from the Sheriff. As it is now, the E-911 Di- rector is under the Sheriff's Administration. Johnson agreed it was a good idea. He also stressed they have always had good cooperation. Councilman Craig said the only drawback he sees is the council won't have the flexibility to transfer money from line items between the E-911 budget and Jail budget anymore. The next council meeting is scheduled for 8:30 a.m. August 13. Immediately fol- lowing that meeting will be a review of the 2020 county budget proposals. Administrator Nathan Held spoke to the council about different opportunities for grants and funds for oth- er projects to improve the town's infrastructure and appearance. • Terry Strobel voiced his concerns about a house on the 200 block of Green Street. He said the trees, bushes and grass are so overgrown that you can't drive down Lucas Street without it brushing the side of the vehicle. Strobel also raised concerns over peo- ple mowing their yards and leaving the cut grass in the roadway, which is a hazard for people on motorcycles and bicycles. • Winslow resident Sta- cy McCandless raised con- cerns about sinkholes and drainage issues on her prop- erty. "My children can not go in our backyard because there are 35 holes," she said. "Some of them are five-feet deep and it's got to be fixed. It is a safety concern. I have to get some help. If I don't get some help, I am going to have to go another ave- nue and I'm not wanting to do that." Wendy Hensler, McCand- less' neighbor, spoke to the council about her concerns over the same drainage is- sues. "The stormwater that's coming down there is washing my garage away," Hensler said. "The water just has to stop. It is killing both of us." • Winslow Clerk-Trea- surer Stacy McCandless said they have had a cou- ple of residents use the on- line bill payment system, and the council is getting ready to start working on the 2020 budget. McCand- less is meeting with the State Board of Accounts on July 16 to review data. • Animal Control Offi- cer Bill Marshall gave his monthly report to the coun- cil, where he said there is currently one dog still in the pound and he received five calls on the Fourth of July about dogs jumping fences due to the fireworks.

Dennis Miller photo. this year people are asked to drop off their boats and everyone in their party, ex- cept the driver, at the pub- lic access parking area no earlier than 8 a.m. The driv- er then should drive to Mill- er's Field in Winslow and park their vehicle. They can then catch a shuttle at Mill St. and Highway 61 back to the start. He stressed people should not park in the parking ar- ea at the bridge. "Last year, it was completely filled with kayaks. If someone parks there, it will create a big problem," said Clement. The shuttles will go to the start from the north via Highway 56. Clement said they will drop people off at the bridge and they can then walk over the bridge to the start, while the shuttle turns around and goes back to Winslow. Camping available Camping will be available at Miller's Field for the event beginning Friday morning until Sunday morning. The Winslow American Legion is donating the use of their property. Clement said campers will be allowed but there won't be electric or water hook- ups available. "It is mostly for tent camping." He said there will be four porta potties at Miller's Field, two at the start and one in Riverside Park.
