They are unable to commit to the program because they don't have a ride or they have to work or no one cares about getting them to or from practice, or they have nev- er been taught about self- discipline. We had some kids out there playing their guts out with some absolute- ly heart-breaking stories. I think that's the side peo- ple don't see. They see the score in the paper but they don't know the sacrifice that kid made to put his body on the line for his teammates, school and community." Mattingly wrote that scheduling non-conference games against Wood Me- morial and Tecumseh – in- stead of Evansville Bosse and Princeton – starting in 2018 was a "big deal." The Chargers, who are 1-7 in games against Evansville Bosse and 3-14 in games against Princeton, have a 14-13 record against Wood Memorial and an 8 -26 re- cord against Tecumseh. "If the 2018 Pike Central football team can develop as leaders, I think they will have a chance to have a great season," Mattingly wrote. "In my time at Pike Central, we went from having zero coaches in the building to three. Our last football meet- ing had over 30 sophomores through seniors plus around 20 freshmen. We were nev- er able to get the weight pro- gram where it needed to be, but I think our football staff this year has left the pro- gram in a better place than when we found it. Hopeful- ly, the next coach can do the same." By Andy Heuring A Francisco woman was arrested after a report of drug activity in a parking lot. Ladonna Straw, 58, of 406 W. Chestnut St., Francisco, was arrested on a warrant May 12 for possession of meth after police received a report of a drug transaction. Petersburg Police Sgt. Chad McClellan said he was called to the Golden Living Center and talked with exec- utive director Cathy Eckert, who told him an employee had seen Straw talking with a man in the parking lot. Ac- cording to Sgt. McClellan's report, the employee said when she asked Straw what was going on, Straw said, "she had lost her dope." It also said Straw showed the employee an open cello- phane wrapper with loose white powder inside and said, "we can do a line later." Sgt. McClellan said when he questioned Straw about the accusations, she denied having any illegal drugs on her. Then when he said they could bring in K-9 Officer Bleck to do a search, Straw said she might have a mari- juana pipe. According to the report, Straw eventually asked if she gave McClellan the blue box with dope in it, if he would arrest her. In the report, Sgt. McClel- lan said he wouldn't arrest her that night, which was Thursday, May 10. He later obtained a warrant and she was arrested on Saturday. Prepping for the 4-H Livestock Show Nine-year-old Jesse Ridao and eight-year-old Emily Thorne had a big job Saturday morning carrying swine stall sections out of the livestock barn. They handled quite a few of them while adults unfastened them. New metal gates and corral sections to replace the wood sections was the name of the game but it would be a very long day to get it all done that Saturday. See more on page A-6. James Capozella photo Straw arrested for meth SCHEDULE Continued from page 1 The annual Memorial Day parade in Winslow is set for 2 p.m., with line-up begin- ning at 1 p.m. at the Win- slow Elementary School. The parade will proceed on Porter St. from the ele- mentary school to Main St., turn south and go to Union St., and then go east to Oak Hills Cemetery. The cemetery schedules are as follows: Petersburg VFW 7:45 a.m. Twin Oaks 8:10 a.m. Anderson Cha- pel (Hwy 57 N.) 8:20 a.m. Pleasant Ridge (Campbelltown) 8:45 a.m. Vincent Church Cemetery (Hwy 56 E.) 9:10 a.m. Otwell Ceme- tery 9:30 a.m. Public Ceme- tery (Iva) 9:50 a.m. McClure Ceme- tery (Algiers) 10 :10 a.m. Courthouse Memorial (Petersburg) 10 :45 a.m. Walnut Hills Cemetery (Petersburg) 11:35 a.m. White River Chapel (Bowman) 11:50 a.m. Odd Fellows Cemetery (Union) 12:15 p.m. Atkinson Cha- pel Cemetery (Oatsville) Winslow's American Legion 7 a.m. Martin Cemetery (Glezen) 7:20 a.m. Williams Cem- etery 7:40 a.m. New Liberty Cemetery 8 a.m. Blackfoot Ceme- tery 8:20 a.m. Spurgeon Cem- etery 8:40 a.m. Log Creek 9 a.m. Barrett Cemetery 9:45 a.m. Augusta Cem- etery 10 :05 a.m. Cup Creek Cemetery 10 :25 a.m. Stilwell Cem- etery 10 :45 a.m. Velpen Ceme- tery 11:05 a.m. New Liberty 11:30 a.m. Beadles Cem- etery ter on the meter," said Brew- ster. As he read further, Brew- ster said "They are saying there was a leak, but it didn't go through the meter." Winslow Clerk-Treasurer Stacy Worthington said, "I think they are saying they had a leak in their crawl space and it wasn't going through the sewer system, but I don't thing she was say- ing it right." "If they had a leak, that is why they had a high water usage. I'd say we could give them a break on the water part," said Strobel. Winslow's policy on wa- ter adjustments is if there is a leak on the homeown- er's side of the meter that isn't going through the sew- er system, then they will forgive the amount of water that is above normal usage from the sewer bill. Brewster then moved to pool filling. He said peo- ple filling a pool are forgiv- en the sewer bill if they no- tify the town before they fill their pool. Councilmen decided to give the water adjustment to the leak in the crawl space and not adjust the other request. In other water-related business, Brewster said they have a request for water to be turned on for one day. Worthington said she had gotten requests for water to be turned on for one day so houses can be inspected ei- ther by a prospective buyer or a home inspector. Both Brewster and Stro- bel said they didn't have a problem with that, but peo- ple would not be allowed to have water turned on so they can clean up the residence. Fire Chief Jason Bottoms, in citizens comments, asked the council about his water bill. He said it jumped $ 97 and they hadn't done any- thing different. Councilman Brewster told Bottoms to check his toilets. Brewster said they can check and see if his wa- ter meter is an old meter. He suggested Bottoms try to put dye in his toilet tank and see if it colors the wa- ter in the tank without flush- ing it. "What happens if it doesn't? " asked Bottoms. "Then try it again the next day and the next day. It can work one and not the next day," said Brewster. TRASH PICKUP CAN BE SCHEDULED Councilman Strobel said Winslow workers would be picking up items in town to take to the Pike County Spring Clean-up, which of- fers free disposal of items from Thursday, May 31 to Saturday, June 2. However, Strobel said pickup would only be on Thursday and Fri- day. He said people should call Town Hall and notify the town they want trash picked up and to place the trash on the street curb in front of their house. "We aren't go- ing into people's garages to get trash," said Strobel. OTHER BUSINESS Debra Lamb told the board the Beautification Committee was having a fix-up your property contest. She said people fixing up the exterior of their house or just cleaning it up can send pictures of their place before and after to the Beautifica- tion Committee. They will give one winner a $25 gift certificate to Home Depot. The Memorial Day pa- rade in Winslow will begin at 2 p.m. at the Winslow El- ementary School and go to Oak Hill Cemetery via Main St. Line-up begins at 1 p.m. The next meeting day is being moved to 9 a.m. Tues- day, May 29 at Town Hall. Their normal fourth Mon- day meeting would have fall- en on Memorial Day.
