Pike County 4-H preparing for Fair in July By James Capozella Pike County 4-H is pre- paring for the 2018 4-H Fair by training on animal care, and renovating the live- stock barn and grounds. 4-H Youth Development Educa- tor Sarah Hopkins has been training dozens of 4-H youth through the Youth for Quali- ty Care of Animals ( YQCA) program, which is aimed at 4-H animal exhibitors. The new Indiana livestock program requires that all 4- H members exhibiting cat- tle, sheep, goats, poultry and rabbits be certified. The new requirement ensures that 4-H members learn about quality assurance, but it is not a guide for animal exhi- bition. It is geared to teach the best management prac- tices with the animals. The program ensures that Indiana 4-H livestock mem- bers are more prepared to be ambassadors for animal agriculture in their role as youth livestock exhibitors. It also ensures utmost care, and contributes to a safe and wholesome food supply. YOUTH WORK DAY Adult 4-H leaders and Pur- due extension staff super- vised the cleanup and reno- vation going on at the Pike County 4-H Fairgrounds this past Saturday, but it was the youth doing most of the work, with leaders taking care of construction chores. They took the fasteners out of the wooden swine stalls that were going to be re- placed with metal walls and gates. Pike County 4-H mem- bers who are exhibiting in the 2018 Fair are expected to participate in at least one fairgrounds cleanup day. The renovating of some of the support posts and re- placing the swine stalls is in addition to the cleanup days. The next cleanup date is July 20 from 8 a.m. until 8 p.m., the day before the be- ginning of the fair. Pike County youth development educator Sarah Hopkins guided 4-H participants through a Pike County 4-H Youth for Quality Care of Animals (YQCA) program this past Saturday morning. It was the third of four such trainings available free to all those exhibiting beef cattle, dairy cattle, swine, sheep, meat goats, dairy goats, poultry and rabbits. The fourth training was this past Monday. 4-H members must be certified through the YQCA program to exhibit at the 2018 Pike County 4-H Fair, which runs July 22 through July 28. July 16 is the deadline for fair entry of exhibits.

Crystal Simpson, 34, of 1428 Uhl- horn St., Evansville, was arrested on a preliminary charge of operating a ve- hicle while intoxicated early Saturday. Petersburg Police Cpl. Jared Simmons said he saw a car driving down Main St. and noticed the sound of metal drag- ging as it passed. He saw the vehicle then turn into Huck's parking lot. He said when he drove near the vehicle at Huck's, he noticed a significant amount of fresh damage to the side of the car. When he talked with Simpson, who was driving, she said she swerved to avoid a deer and hit a guard rail be- tween Monroe City and Petersburg. Simmons said he also noticed the odor of alcohol. He said Simpson failed field sobri- ety tests. She was then transported to the Pike County Jail, where she tested 0.95 per- cent for blood alcohol content. The le- gal limit in Indiana for driving is 0.08 percent. An Oakland City man was arrested on drunken driving and meth-related charges after he threw a cigarette out his window and it hit the car of a Dep- uty Sheriff. Matthew James Lee, 34, of 531 Sher- man St., Oakland City, was arrested by Pike County Deputy Sheriff Jason McKinney. McKinney said at 1:51 a.m. Saturday, he was driving south on Highway 61 when he saw a vehicle go left of center and throw a lit cigarette out the driver's window, which hit the front of McKin- ney's patrol car. Deputy McKinney said while talk- ing with Lee, the driver, he noticed Lee was very nervous and sweating profusely. Lee told Deputy McKinney he didn't realize it was against the law to throw a lit cigarette. Deputy Buck Seger and K-9 Officer Bleck arrived, and Bleck did a sniff test of Lee's vehicle and indicated on the driver's door. According to Deputy McKinney's re- port, Deputy Seger searched Lee's ve- hicle and found a glass smoking device used to smoke marijuana wax. He also found a black box with a glass smoking device that contained marijuana wax, as well as a third pipe with a white pow- der that field tested positive for meth. McKinney said Lee failed field so- briety tests and was transported to the Pike County Jail, where he refused to take a chemical test. Lee was preliminarily charged with operating a vehicle while intoxicated, refusal; possession of meth; possession of marijuana; and possession of para- phernalia. A rural Petersburg man was arrested when he drove away from where he was parked after he told police he was wait- ing on his wife to pick him up. Kade B. Cornelius, 34, of 1161 E. CR 400 N., Petersburg, was arrested on a charge of operating a vehicle while in- toxicated. According to Cpl. Simmons' report, Petersburg Police Sgt. Chad McClellan had stopped and talked with Cornelius, who was sitting in his car at Eighth and Main streets. Sgt. McClellan said Cor- nelius was "clearly intoxicated," but he was waiting on his wife to pick him up. About 10 minutes later, Cpl. Sim- mons said he saw Cornelius drive north on Eighth St. Cpl. Simmons stopped Cornelius at the corner of Seventh and Main streets. His report stated when he asked Cornelius why he had driven away, he said his ride wasn't coming to get him. Cornelius failed field sobriety tests and was taken to the Pike County Jail, where he tested 0.15 percent for blood alcohol content. Sunday night, an Alabama semi- truck driver was arrested when he test- ed more than three times the legal lim- it after he crashed his semi-truck on I- 69 at about 10 :30 p.m. James Toler, 49, of Oxford, Ala., was driving a semi-tractor trailer on I-69, hauling large rolls of paper, when he ran off the side of the highway, ac- cording State Trooper C.J. Boeck- man. Boeckman said Toler then over- corrected, pulling the truck back onto the highway and his load shifted, caus- ing it to overturn. Trooper Boeckman said when he talked with Toler, he could smell the odor of alcohol, noticed his eyes were bloodshot and he had slurred speech. He also found a bottle of whiskey in the truck cab. Toler failed field sobriety tests and was taken to the Pike County Jail, where he tested 0.254 percent for blood alcohol content, which more than three times the legal limit in In- diana of 0.08 percent. Toler was preliminarily charged with operating a vehicle while intox- icated and reckless driving.
