Woman 'homeless in her back yard' accused of bringing 'third world' conditions to Oakridge Dr.
Two neighbors on Oakridge Drive will be in court July 31 to ask Judge Gary Smith to rule in each of their favor.
Joe and Susie Hall have lived at 279 Oakridge Drive, North Vernon for almost 50 years. Their neighbor, Bethanne Rigney, has also been a long-time neighbor right next door.
The Halls and Rigney apparently got along well enough until the last few years when Rigney's property began to deteriorate.
Now, the Halls are asking the court for an order to remove junk, debris, salvage and unnecessary clutter; to stop Rigney and her friend from living and sleeping in a tent at the location where there are no sanitary facilities; and an order to stop her from living at the home until it is shown to be "habitable."

Love of libraries inspires Brenda Campbell to direct one of her own
A woman who worked at the local library for the past 14 years will now be running her own show in her new job as director of the Tyson Library in Versailles.
Brenda Campbell, who has served as the library's director of educational development and marketing, will now take the step she was first encouraged to take 14 years ago by then-library director Larry Cunningham.
"Larry Cunningham got me thinking," the 47-year-old mother of two said. "I'm always looking to better myself and the opportunity is not here. Our director (Mary Hougland) isn't going anywhere."
She was drawn to the director's job for several reasons.
"Based on my personality, I like to be in charge," Brenda said with a laugh.

The Brown and the Blue honoring those who serve
Name: Bryan Katterhenry
Date of Hire:May 6, 2015.
Rank: Sheriff's Deputy
Why did you choose to enter Law Enforcement? I never really woke up one day and said, 'I think I want to go be a cop.' Over time, it just sort of became the most obvious option. Once I entered college and started looking at careers that I could see myself having and enjoying for the long term, there was really only one stand out option which was Law Enforcement. I considered joining the military, but felt more called to serve in a local capacity. In April of 2014, I was fortunate enough to be hired by the City of Alexander (Madison County, IN) as a Reserve Officer and over the last year, before being hired here in Jennings County, I was able to get first-hand experience in this field and that further cemented that this is the career for me.
