What to do with the Aurora City pool resurfaced at the city parks board meeting, tailing discussion of plans for a gazebo next to the dog park.

“Since it made the newspaper, I've had a lot of people stop me and ask about the pool,” said Aurora Mayor

Donnie Hastings, chairing the July meeting in the absence of park board president Mike Peters. “It seems a lot of people support the pool.”

Lawrenceburg Police are asking for help finding the suspect in the robbery of K&K Mini Mart, 570 W. Eads Parkway, U.S. 50, Lawrenceburg.

The suspect is a white male about 30 years old wearing blue jeans and a white T-shirt. He is also described as having a sleeve tattoo on his left arm with a demon face on the front of the arm and theatre mask on the back.

There was no color on the tattoo. Witnesses also said the suspect did not have facial hair, and was about 6-feet, 1-inch and about 175 pounds.

The robbery happened at about 1 p.m. Friday, July 25, when the man went into the mini-mart and asked for change. When the employee opened the cash register, the man grabbed money from the register and ran.

Police had K-9 units in the area, and LPD was assisted by the Dearborn County Sheriff’s Department, Greendale Police and Aurora Police.

Anyone with information about the robbery who may know the suspect or has seen him can call LPD at 1-812-537-2284.

Efforts towards a feasibility study on whether a port would survive in Ohio County or Dearborn County are not intended to circumvent the Southeast Indiana Regional Port Authority, Ind. Rep. Randy Frye (R-Indianapolis) told that board Friday, July 18.

Rather, his meeting with Ohio County and some Dearborn County officials and residents Thursday, June 26, was a movement toward something he's been thinking about for the two years since he was elected, he said.

“One of the first things I wanted to do was establish a port here,” he said. The first step is a study of whether a port would survive and where it best would be located, said Frye. Personally, he doesn't care where it would go, anywhere between the Indiana/Ohio state line in Dearborn down to the Ohio/Switzerland county line, he said.
