Murder confession heard in court BY Wayne Gates The Brown County Press The confession of Joseph Hensley will be admissible in his murder trial. That’s the result of a Suppression Hearing held July 5 before Visiting Judge Thomas Nurre in Brown County Common Pleas Court. During the hearing, Brown County Prosecuting Attorney Jessica Little played an audio recording of an April 30, 2010 interrogation of Hensley by Brown County Sheriff’s Office Detective Buddy Moore. A report on the confession was printed last September in the Brown County Press. As everyone in the courtroom listened, Moore proceeded to question Hensley, starting with how Hensley was hired by Dallas Tincher to kill Carpenter.

Tincher was convicted of complicity to murder charges last January. On the audio CD, Hensley said he was approached by someone who said he had been approached by Tincher. “(He) pulled me to the side and said Dallas wanted somebody to take care of somebody for him”, Hensley said. Hensley said he thought it was a joke at first, but was later approached by Tincher himself. Moore asked “What were his exact words?” Hensley replied “He said ‘I want him gone.’ I asked ‘What do you mean gone?’ He said ‘I want you to kill him.” Hensley then said Tincher later took him to the home of Robert Short in Sardinia, where Tincher paid Short two hundred dollars for a nine millimeter handgun.

Hensley told Moore he kept the gun for “three or four” days and was having second thoughts about agreeing to killing Carpenter. Hensley said Tincher picked him up the morning of April 20 and drove him down to Aberdeen and dropped him off on Stringtown Road, near Carpenters trailer. “I walked down and knocked on the guys door”, Hensley told Moore. “He called me in. I stood there. I talked to him for about twenty minutes and then the news came on. It had kids on the news like 13 or 14 year old girls, dude. They were talking about flip flops being the in thing. And he looks at the TV. I looked at him and said ‘Dude, those are kids’. He said ‘I don’t care’. He said “That’s a hot little ***** right there’. A 13 year CONTINUED ON PAGE 12

Local families upset after Gist Tincher responds to civil suit, says Hensley is the one who bought gun Settlement marker stolen By Martha Jacob The Brown County Press

BY Wayne Gates The Brown County Press

It was with a sad heart that Peggy Mills Warner, historian with the Freed Gist Slaves Descendants Foundation, talked about the beautiful historical marker which was stolen from the Methodist Cemetery on Five Points-Fincastle Road east of Sardinia, around June 28-29. “It took us 10 years to raise enough money to pay for that marker,” Warner said. “I am more than upset about this, I am sad beyond belief. That marker held the names of my ancestors, as well as the names of 31 other families ancestors, all of whom were freed from slavery. This site was the first site in Ohio that was bought by Samuel Gist and given to his slaves.” In 1819, Samuel Gist divided 1,197 acres of land among 150 CONTINUED ON PAGE 12

Attorneys for Dallas and Ruth Tincher have responded to a civil suit filed against them by murder victim John Carpenters family by naming his accused killer as a Third Party Defendant. Carpenter was murdered in April of 2010 near Aberdeen. Dallas Tincher was convicted in January of hiring Joseph Hensley to kill Carpenter. Tincher was sentenced to 28 years to life in prison last March. Hensley is currently awaiting trial on murder charges. Naming Hensley as a Third Party Defendant essentially means that the Tinchers are claiming that any injuries done to Carpenter are the fault of Hensley alone. CONTINUED ON PAGE 11

Benefit fraud effort nets over 20K Ripley sues Katherine Lang in civil court for almost a million $ BY Wayne Gates The Brown County Press

Efforts to end benefit fraud in Brown County appear to be working. Since publicly announcing the fraud recovery effort in May, Department of Job and Family Services Investigator Jenny Crawford said that

$21,607.84 has been recovered. Of that money, Crawford said that $7077.25 will stay here to be used by the Brown County Department of Job and Family Services. The rest of the money will be returned to the state. “Our collections are up and we are on the right 0road”, Crawford said. “Benefit fraud is unfair to both taxpayers and those who receive assistance.” Crawford said much more money is expected to be collected in the future. She said 117 people have signed repayment agreements and 83 more have had their benefits reduced to reflect their true income. 282 people have also made payments to reduce their documented over payments, and 113 people have been referred to the Brown County Assistant Prosecutor Steve Purtell for possible legal action. “We are attempting to collect on every dollar that is owed to us”, said Crawford. Purtell said that letters requesting repayment have been sent to everyone that has been referred for prosecution. He added that “about a

dozen” cases have been filed against people for benefit fraud and he expected that number to climb to 30 to 40 cases by the end of July. Purtell said that the largest amount of benefit fraud he’s dealing with is about $14,000, but the majority of cases are between overpayments $500.00 and $1000.00. Crawford said that she is making more home visits along with Supervisor Ruth Ellen Kidwell to make sure that possible overpayments are corrected early before they get out of hand. Crawford said that when cases of overpayments are found, the clients are contacted and given a chance to make arrangements to start paying the money back. If no contact is made by the given date, the cases are referred to the prosecutors office.” Last May, Kidwell said one way that investigators can determine if benefit fraud is taking place is by comparing income tax returns to reported income. In May, Purtell stressed that the Prosecutor’s Office would CONTINUED ON PAGE 12

BY Wayne Gates The Brown County Press The Village of Ripley has filed a million dollar civil suit against former village utility clerk Katherine Lang. Lang pleaded guilty last January to stealing $952,618 from Ripley’s utility account. She was sentenced in March to 13 years in prison and to pay the full amount of $952,618 in restitution to the Village of Ripley and an additional

$121,982 to cover the cost of the special audit that uncovered the theft. Lang admitted stealing the money between January 2006 and October 2009. She was also ordered to pay the full amount of $952,618 in restitution to the Village of Ripley and an additional $121,982 to cover the cost of the special audit. Ripley Village Solicitor Jay Cutrell, speaking at a village council meeting on June 14,

said that a civil suit may not bear any fruit. “We have the option to file a civil suit against Kathy Lang,” Cutrell said. “I’ve done all the paper work on this with the bonding company in regard to filing a suit. But in reviewing what the court has already done, with the criminal case, the defendant was ordered to pay restitution in the amount of $952,618 on count one and $121,982 on CONTINUED ON PAGE 12

During the July 5 Village of Aberdeen Council Meeting, Councilwoman Billie Eitel announced that an Aberdeen resident has offered to lease his shoreline property to the village for $1 a year for a yet to be determined number of

years and the village will pay the taxes. Eitel told council that she has been having ongoing conversations with the owner of the property to allow the village to take over maintenance of the river front property which is next to the park. “That area is a beautiful spot,” Eitel told council, “but

we’ll have to get in there with bulldozer and clean it up. I really appreciate the owners cooperation and willingness to work with the village on this project.” Also during the meeting, Aberdeen business owner of Crystal’s Collectibles, Gerald Manning, asked council for permission and support in his effort to use a small portion of village property near the waste water treatment plant for several days. Manning announced that he is planning on holding an air show in Aberdeen the last weekend in August. “This car show is going to be a lot of fun for everyone,” Manning told council, “ it will have hot air balloons, 2-seater planes and rides for children. There’s nothing dangerous about any of this, I just wanted to ask council for permission to use between 15’ and 30’ of land at the treatment plant. We many not need it, I just want to be prepared in case we do.” Manning said he would be responsible for liability insurance, clean up, landscaping and anything else that comes up during the 4-day event. “This event will pull visi-

tors from all over the state,” he added. “It’s going to bring a lot of campers, hotels will be full, gas stations and restaurants will benefit as will the local economy. Some of the pilots flew over Aberdeen Friday night to check the area out, and they said out village is gorgeous and they hope it goes well and this could become an annual event.” Manning went on to say he is proud of Aberdeen and he would like to have some kind of event happening in the village every month. In other business, council discussed the ongoing problem of vandalism of the bathrooms at the village park. Some question arose over who was supposed to unlock and lock the bathrooms each day. “I try to keep those bathrooms clean,” explained Village Administrator Emily Henderson. “The problem is, if the rest rooms are closed and children are playing at the park, parents have to find somewhere for them to use the bathroom. That leads to problems.” Curfew issues at the park were also discussed with the conclusion made that the

police should begin enforcing curfew ordinances. The village sold off a long list of old equipment owned by the village during the holiday weekend and raised $5,537, with plans to use the money to purchase much needed new equipment for the village. A Toyota Selica which had be seized by the Aberdeen Police Department was also auctioned off. The $2741 raised will be put into the drug fund of the police department. Council also recognized Aberdeen resident Larry Schlomer for his ongoing efforts to clean and maintain

the village park. Henderson presented Schlomer with a certificate of appreciation during the meeting. “We would like to personally thank Mr. Schlomer for all the time and effort that he has spent at the park cleaning it up,” Henderson began, “Larry has spent many, many, many hours in the hot sun, and has done an awesome job. There are many wonderful people in our village who do good things throughout the year. We only have two village workers, and their plates are full. The more volunteers we have, the better our community will be.”

Local children get free service dogs thanks to Pepsi Corp. and Animals for Autism


Just when two local families had adjusted to the fact that they would have to each raise $5,000 to purchase a specially trained dog to help their children cope with autism, both families will receive an autism service dog free of charge thanks to a Grant from the Pepsi company. David and Elizabeth Dewitt and their son Samuel of Mt. Orab and Tom and Brenda Schram and their daughter Lanie of Williamsburg, have been working hard to raise the money to purchase one of the special autism service dogs. “I first heard of the ‘Animals for Autism’ program on facebook,” said Brenda Schram. “The month of April is always Autism Awareness Month and when I learned of this program, I contacted them and found out everything I needed to do to get one of the service dogs for my daughter Lanie.” Autism is a general term used to describe a group of complex developmental brain disorders. One in every 110 children has some form of autism which can be mild to severe. “My husband and I decided to apply for one of the service dogs,” she continued. “There was a lot to do. We had to fill out a long application form plus make a 10 minute video showing our home, each of our family members, our yard, and basically anything the dog would see. “It took me over three weeks to get everything done. We had to have letters from all her doctors and questionnaires from everyone living in our home.” Brenda said when she finally got everything done and sent to the Animals for Autism


Samuel DeWitt (left) of Mount Orab and Lanie Schram of Williamsburg both have autism and both will receive a free autism service dog in early spring next year. The trained dogs are from the ‘Animals for Autism’ program in Illinois. Samuel is the son of David and Elizabeth and Lanie is the daughter of Tom and Brenda. Congratulations to them all. The puppy shown is ‘Sesi’ and has been promised to Lanie.

in Illinois, it was a relief, but then the waiting began. In the mean time she and her family visited a special web site called, and were able to see the actual puppies that could be her daughter’s some day. “Well, eventually, we were notified that we would not be receiving a dog,” she said, “but that we could buy one of the dogs at a discounted price of $5,000. So, we immediately started fundraising to come up with the money. “But it wasn’t long before we learned about a special ‘Pepsi Refresh Everything Program’, where anyone could go on their website and vote for different charitable organizations. The winning organizations could win up to $50,000 in grant money.” Brenda said she voted many times, as did all her friends and family members for the ‘Animals for Autism’ program which was one of the organizations on the ballot. “Well, we just couldn’t believe it when we were notified last week, that the Animals for Autism won the $50,000 grant,” Brenda said with excitement in her voice.

“And not only had they won, we and the DeWitt family were notified that both our children would receive a service dog, free of charge.” “That was really good news for us,” said David Dewitt, pastor of Mt. Orab Wesleyan Church and Samuel’s father. “We had been making $500 a month payments on our dog since May and they covered the rest. “Samuel has already been matched with his dog. We have to keep on raising money though, because we will be spending a week in Illinois when we pick our dog up, and we have to pay our own expenses.” Animals for Autism will be giving away 10 free dogs with the grant money. Brenda said her daughter has also been assigned her very own puppy, which will be placed in her home in Spring 2012 after extensive training. “Next spring we will travel with Lanie to Illinois and stay for a week,” Brenda added. “In that week, Lanie will get to know her new dog and he will get to know her.” Brenda said they have already raised over $700

Fight against prescription drug abuse ramps up As part of his push to fight the rampant prescription drug abuse spreading across Ohio, today Gov. John R. Kasich signed House Bill 93 (Burke, Johnson). The legislation, which received unanimous support from the Ohio General Assembly, will strengthen the state’s ability to shut down “pill mill” operations led by corrupt doctors who dispense lethal doses of pain medications to anyone with a few hundred dollars. “If you overprescribe, we’re going to come get you. This is about our children. It’s about our mothers and fathers. It’s really about Ohio families,” said

GOVERNOR JOHN KASICH Kasich during a recent press conference. “These doctors are fantastic people but some of them are abusing their profession…and it is critical that the medical board maintain the integrity of the profession. So really the message is, if you’re out there breaking the law, you may get away with it for a while but these professionals, they’re gonna come get you.”

Joining Gov. Kasich for Friday’s bill signing were bill sponsors Reps. David Burke and Terry Johnson, Sen. Jimmy Stewart, Rep. Lynn Wachtmann, Ohio Department of Alcohol and Drug Addiction Services (ODADAS) Director Orman Hall, Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation Administrator Steve Ohio Buehrer, former Attorney General Betty Montgomery, local law enforcement officials, and members of SOLACE – a support group for those who have lost loved ones to prescription drug abuse. Passage of HB 93 is just one flank of a multipronged battle to end the

prescription drug abuse epidemic that has shattered the lives of Ohioans across the state from the Ohio River to the shores of Lake Erie. Gov. Kasich first launched the fight against prescription drug abuse in February when he visited Scioto County to announce the formation of a statewide task force led by ODADAS Director Orman Hall and former Ohio Attorney General Betty Montgomery. In April, Gov. Kasich announced that through local, state and federal cooperation, $36 million would be available for drug treatment and prevention throughout the state.

Fulfillment in life is the key to happiness Dear Editor, What is the one thing, more than anything else, a person should seek from anything he/she does with his/her life? Fulfillment. Everybody wants some type of fulfillment to validate what he/she does--the fulfillment produces the reason to continue doing what’s being done. From artist to writer to chef to doctor to civil servant to minister to plumber to garbage collector to tap dancer, it’s all about being fulfilled in doing what you’re doing. If you’re not, than you lose joy. I have an old fishing pal of mine who works at several different jobs, but his true passion is writing--which he does every day. Writing is his reason for existence. He travels with notebook in hand, capturing ideas on paper to put into an article or novel. He ain’t rich, but he is fulfilled. One of my other fishing pals, and poker playing buddies, is a fantastic jazz musician--pianist, guitarist, sax player, singer and song

writer. Music is his passion. Rich? No. Happy? Oh, my...yes, yes, yes!!! Another one of my friends works as a fishing guide professionally and another one works on a cattle ranch, riding the range out in Montana. Several are lawyers and several are doctors while several more are teachers and preachers and artists and carpenters and bricklayers--but all of them are immersed in what they do with their lives and have a passion and a zest. No matter what one does, being fulfilled in that vocation speaks volumes. My mother, at 84-years-old, still works as a professional musician--it’s her passion and the very thing that givers her the most joy. It keeps her going in life. My grandpa was a professional baseball umpire up until his early seventies as well as a mail carrier. He absolutely loved what he did and was good at it. Everybody needs to have a passion for what he/she does if he/she wants to make it count for something. Life is too short and

“Only a handful of states have a residency requirement for their veterans’ preference on these exams, and none of our neighbor states require residency,” said Stebelton. “These changes address issues our service members and their families face due to situations out of their control.” The Veterans Affairs committee amended H.B. 162 to include provisions allowing for service members and their spouses to obtain temporary professional licenses when they relocate to Ohio due to their military service. For example, a wife of a soldier who is relocated to Wright-Patterson Air Force Base who has a cosmetology license currently would be unemployable until she would get her Ohio license. Under the bill, she would get a six-month temporary license so she could start working when she arrives in Ohio. House Bill 162 passed with unanimous support and will now move to the Ohio Senate for further consideration.

fleeting for it to be any other way--we have to be fulfilled. There was an old farmer I knew back in Virginia who worked from dawn until dusk everyday, raising livestock and grain, tending his gardens and fruit trees, helping his wife raise their three children. He absolutely loved what he did--even now, at age 86, he continues doing what he has always done. (A little slower, maybe, but it’s who he is and what he does.) I asked the old guy once, “Raleigh, what keeps you doing this day in and day out? Farming has got to be the biggest gamble in the

world-- you’re at the mercy of mother nature every time you turn around. Have you ever thought of doing anything else?” He said, “Sure have, son. In fact, many times. But me and God spend a lot of time together out here, quite often alone. We have a good partnership going on. Everytime I thought about doing something different, I just couldn’t see giving it up. I love what I do too much to let it go and I couldn’t be happy any other way.” Fulfillment in what we do and who we are: may all of us find it. Rev. Sam Talley

State Representatives Danny Bubp (R-West Union) and Gerald Stebelton (RLancaster) have announced that the Ohio House of Representatives passed House Bill 162, legislation to allow all military veterans to receive the veterans’ preference on civil service examinations. Specifically, House Bill 162 will amend sections of the Ohio Revised Code to provide certain professional licensing and certification rights to service members, spouses of service members, and veterans, and to eliminate the requirement that a veteran be a resident of Ohio to qualify to receive the veterans preference on civil service examinations. “By extending the military service credit to all honorably discharged veterans, Ohio will be encouraging well qualified service members to come work in our great state,” Bubp said. Currently, veterans may receive a 20 percent additional credit to their total grade scored on the regular civil service examination only if they are also a resident of Ohio. This condition hinders former residents of Ohio who have left for their military service and taken up residency where they are stationed from returning to Ohio to live and work in the civil service sector.

HEALTH MATTERS TOM CALLAHAN, RPH weight loss. Most people with type II diabetes are on an oral medication to control their disease. Before the discovery of insulin a child with diabetes would normally not live more than one year. The diagnosis of diabetes was a death knell in a family as parents would have to stand by helplessly as their child slowly wasted away. In the early 20th century, Dr. Frederick Allen made news by keeping children alive for three to four years by means of a very calorie restricted diet. His patients were restricted to between 400 to 450 calories a day, basically a starvation diet. Parents were faced with deciding between the devil and the deep blue sea, between their child dying within a year or starving them to death for an extra couple of

Insulin, another miracle of modern medicine In a recent column I told you about one of the milestones in modern medicine, the discovery of penicillin and antibiotics. Today I’d like to talk about another miracle of modern medicine, namely insulin. Insulin is used to treat diabetes, so first let’s go over the basics about diabetes. There are two types of diabetes. They used to be known as juvenile onset or insulin dependent, and adult onset or non-insulin dependent. However they are now called type I and type II diabetes. Type I diabetes is thought to be an auto-immune disease where the insulin secreting cells in the pancreas are destroyed and the body can no longer produce insulin. If not treated with insulin this type of diabetes is fatal. In type II diabetes the pancreas still produces insulin but the cells in the body are “insulin resistant”. This type of diabetes is often associated with being overweight, and if caught early enough can be managed with lifestyle changes such as exercise and

This t-shirt should become a collector’s item since it’s the last race that Becky will be participating in. Also, this year, we have added more age divisions for the walkers in hopes that younger participants will come out and support our 4-H program in Brown County. There are different age categories for both men and women in the race and walk as well. There is also a stroller division.

years. One of those treated by Dr. Allen was Elizabeth Hughes. Elizabeth was the daughter of the governor of New York and developed diabetes at the age of 11. Dr. Allen put her on a calorie restricted diet and by the time she was 14, she had gone from 75 pounds at age 11 to 45 pounds at age 14. Not only was her weight dropping but her health was deteriorating rapidly. Luckily Dr. Allen had kept her alive long enough for insulin to be available. In 1922 Elizabeth and her mother traveled to Toronto where she was treated with insulin by Dr. Frederick Banting. Her health markedly improved with the insulin treatments and she was able to live a nearly normal life. Elizabeth died at the age of 73 from pneumonia. Although Dr. Banting discovered that an extract from the pancreas could treat diabetes, he was not equipped to mass manufacture the drug. In 1922 the University of Toronto granted Eli Lilly, a pharmaceutical company, a license to manufacture

insulin. For the next 60 years insulin was obtained from the pancreas of cattle and pigs. Through the years Lilly worked to improve the purity of the insulin, but there was still the problem of availability. If Americans ate less meat, fewer pigs and cows would be slaughtered and fewer pancreases would be available. Combine that with a growing demand for insulin and it was clear a day of reckoning was on the horizon. Lilly’s answer to this potential problem was the use of recombinant DNA technology. This technology uses human genes placed into bacteria to produce human insulin. In 1982 the FDA approved Lilly’s product Humulin which is human insulin produced by bacteria. Through the use of this technology there is a much more reliable and safer supply of insulin in the world today.

WHAT HEART? I want you to consider something today as I go into this message on the heart. I want you to consider that your soul has the same parts as your body. Go with me to Luke 16:19. “There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day: And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores, and desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man’s table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores. And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham’s bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried; And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom. And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame. But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented. And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence.” We can see that the beggar Lazarus went to Paradise where he was comforted but the rich man went to hell where he was tormented. Their bodies were buried but yet they could see and recognize each other. Notice also that the rich man mentioned Lazarus’ finger and then his own tongue. Those are body parts. However remember their bodies are not there. Their bodies are in graves. Therefore what we are talking about are their souls and soul consciousness. We can conclude from this that the soul is identical to the body in appearance and has conscious awareness. Notice also that the rich man’s soul was tormented and Lazarus’s soul was comforted just like the physical body can be tormented or comforted. The rich man said to send Lazarus that he may dip his finger in water and cool his tongue. So they had eyes to see with, fingers to touch with, tongues to talk with, minds to think with, and if you read fur-

DR. CHARLES SMITH MT. ORAB BIBLE BAPTIST CHURCH ther, emotions to feel with. If you could take your soul out of your body you would find that they look just alike. Upon death your soul does in fact leave your body and it goes directly to one of two places, heaven or hell. If you are saved the Bible tells us in II Corinthians 5:8 that to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. Knowing that and the fact that the soul parts and the body parts are alike I want you now to consider the heart. Go with me to Genesis 6:5: “And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.” He said: “the thoughts of his heart” speaking of the heart of his soul. These people were wicked through and through. In Romans 10:10 it says: “For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness...” It is not the heart of your body with which you believe; it is the heart of your soul. Decisions are not made in the head. The head is the computer which stores information but it is the heart of the soul which makes the decisions. Everything concerning going to heaven is depending on the heart of your soul. When the Bible talks about your heart it is not talking about a physical heart that you can change with a heart transplant. John 4:24 tells us that God is a Spirit. Howbeit, God has a heart which can be grieved. It continues in Genesis 6:6 with: “And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.” The wickedness of the heart of man’s soul is the big problem. However Romans 10:9 states: “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.” Amen and Amen!

other diseases. Also, insect damage can be very costly if not controlled in a timely manner. So scout the fields closely for problems. In most cases, the earlier you take action the better. The use of preventative insecticides and fungicides are not cheap until you have an outbreak. These tools are like insurance to some degree. The use of Ridomil Gold in a field with known black shank is a good production practice in addition to varieties that have resistance. The use of Admire or Platinum is good prevention for controlling aphids for the entire season. As we move toward the time when the crop begins to canopy in, you may want to consider using a fungicide to reduce the damage from target spot. There were several growers who had issues with target spot in the plants. This could show up again once the rows begin to close in and air flow is reduced. Quadris at lay-by could greatly reduce the amount of damage from target spot and also give you some added protection from blue mold should it creep into Southern Ohio later on this year. West Nile Virus Found in Ohio The first West Nile Virus was found in Columbus sometime during the week of June 20. The Ohio Department of Health put out a news release on June 23 explaining that the virus had been found in two mosquito pools, so the virus is available and the mosquitoes can transmit the virus.

The recommendations are to eliminate breeding sites for mosquitoes like standing water, water in old tires, unused flower pots, etc. Another recommendation is to use mosquito repellents when outdoors late in the evening until dawn, when mosquitoes are feeding. The repellents most often recommended contain DEET. In addition to the repellents, wearing long sleeve shirts, long pants and socks will also reduce the chances of bites. Don’t forget to protect your animals, too. Horses are a real concern with this virus. For more information about West Nile Virus you can visit Ohio State University Extension’s Ohioline at and search West Nile Virus, or the Ohio Department of Health at Local Pesticide Disposal Opportunity Over the years I have had a few calls with questions about how to legally get rid of unused pesticides. In many cases the pesticides were found cleaning out a garage or out building. Some cases it is by the person who bought the product and just has no further use for the portion remaining. In many cases it is children cleaning out for the parents. We are fortunate to have the Ohio Department of Agriculture offer a local collection site. I know the word local may seem a little off for some people in the Adams, Brown and Highland Counties, but it is a fairly central location for the three

counties. Other counties are also welcome to utilize this opportunity. The location will be the parking lot at the Eastern Brown HS which is located on US 62 about 1 mile south of SR 32. The date is Aug. 2 and they will be there from 10:30 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. If you have questions about this program send me an email at or call in Adams County (937) 544-2339, in Brown call (937) 378-6716, or in Highland call (937) 393-1918.

On the walking tour of Boston, the ladies visited the Old North Church which was built in 1723 and made famous by Paul Revere in 1775. It still remains an active episcopal congregation.

Complicity to Aggravated Murder charges on May 10, 2010. On May 26 of that year, the suit claims that nearly two hundred thousand dollars belonging to the Tincher’s was withdrawn from two bank accounts. Attached to the suit are copies of land transfers dated May 27, 2010, that show two parcels of property totalling approximately 20 acres were transferred from the Dallas Lynn Tincher and Ruth Tincher Revocable Living Trust to Ruth Tincher for one dollar each. Count One of the suit is for wrongful death. It reads that “The negligent, reckless, willful/wanton and intentional acts of Dallas Tincher directly and proximately caused

CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 The response even claims that Hensley purchased the murder weapon. Robert Short of Sardinia testified at Tincher’s trial in January of 2011 that he sold the gun to Tincher. Hensley also testified to that fact at the trial. Carpenter’s mother, Ureina Carpenter, filed the wrongful death suit against Dallas and Ruth Tincher on April 20. Attorney Mark Landes represents Ureina Carpenter. "Now that justice has been done for John Carpenter, we need to make sure that the family he has left behind is cared for”, Landes said in April. Urenia Carpenter is asking for $25,000, plus punitive damages and court costs. The Tincher response contains 13 responses or “defenses”. The responses “specifically deny any liability or responsibility” for damages and assert the right of the Tinchers to “all defenses available” under Ohio Law. One of the Defenses also reads “Plaintiff’s injuries or damages, if any were in fact sustained, were caused by other persons, firms, entities or conditions over which these Defendants had no ownership, responsibility or control”. That leads to the Third Party Claim against Hensley. The Tincher claim reads “ was Third Party Defendant Hensley who in fact purchased the murder weapon and then shot and killed...Johnathan E. Carpenter....” The response continues that “they recover from Third Party Defendant Hensley any and all sums that may be adjudged against them, together with the cost of suit.” The response also read that “...if they are found liable under Plaintiff’s Compliant...then said liability is joint and concurrent with that of Third Party Defendant Hensley...” Ureina Carpenter is also suing for “fraudulent conveyance”, accusing Dallas and Ruth Tincher of “fraudulently transferr(ing) properties and assets...with the actual intent to hinder, delay and/or defraud” her. Tincher was indicted on

the wrongful death of...Johnathan Carpenter.” The suit says that John Carpenters beneficiaries and next of kin are entitled to compensatory damages including loss of financial support from Carpenter. The suit also says that damages should be paid because of the “loss of companionship, consortium, care, assistance, attention, protection, advice, guidance, counsel, instruction, training and education” as a result of John Carpenter’s murder. The suit is also claiming damages for “loss of prospective inheritance to Johnathan Carpenter’s heirs” as well as “Mental anguish and pain and suffering experienced by the beneficiaries and next of kin”.

Nine indicted by Brown County Grand Jury CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 He is also charged with Driving Under Suspension and Failure to Stop After an Accident. Chad Ginn, 31 of Maysville, Ky, faces one count of Possession of Heroin. The charge is a fifth degree felony. Ginn is accused of obtaining, possessing or using Heroin on or about June 9. James Mastin, 50 of Paris, Ky, faces one count of Passing Bad Checks. The charge is a fifth degree felony. Mastin is accused of writing a check to Ronald Hale on April 30 for $1235.50, knowing it would be dishonored. Patricia Milligan, 54 of Ripley, faces one count of Securing Writings by Deception. The charges is a fourth degree felony. Milligan is accused of causing CitiFinancial to execute a collateralized security agreement based on a forged motor vehicle title between April 13 and April 21. Garret Girard, 32 of Mount Orab, faces three counts of Breaking and Entering, two counts of Theft and one count of Theft from an Elderly Person or Disabled Adult.

One theft charge is a first degree misdemeanor. The rest of the charges are fifth degree felonies. Girard is accused of breaking into three outbuildings and obtaining personal property belonging to Donald Moler, Kenneth Crank and Freddie O’Roarck. Brian Boyd, 22 of Georgetown, faces one count of Theft, one count of Receiving Stolen Property and one count of Criminal Mischief. Criminal Mischief is a fifth degree felony, the other charges are fourth degree felonies. Boyd is accused of taking sewer grates and drain covers belonging to the Village of Georgetown. Jeffery Armacost, 22 of Lexington, Ky, faces one count of Theft, one count of Receiving Stolen Property and one count of Criminal Mischief. Criminal Mischief is a fifth degree felony, the other charges are fourth degree felonies. Armacost is accused of taking sewer grates and drain covers belonging to the Village of Georgetown.

The only thing I thought was that was my daughter he was looking at.” Moore asked “How many times did you shoot him, Joe?” “Once”, Hensley replied. “What did you do afterwards?”, Moore asked? “I picked up my shell casing off the floor and left.”, Hensley replied. “You walked out and went where?”, Moore asked. “I walked to the road, Dallas picked me up and I went home.”, Hensley replied. Hensley said that Tincher had promised him $920.00 and a four wheeler worth approximately four thousand dollars in exchange for the murder. Hensley said he planned to use the four wheeler as a down payment for a trailer for himself and girlfriend Sarah Clemens. Later in the interview, Moore asked Hensley what he did with the money Tincher gave him. “I spent it on drugs because I couldn’t sleep after I had done it.”, Hensley answered. Moore then asked “If you could talk to (Carpenter) what would you say?” Hensley replied “I’d want to know if he was really molesting that girl, to know that I didn’t take somebody's life for no reason at all.” He added “I’m really not a

killer, dude”, and appeared to become upset. Moore’s voice was then heard ending the interview. While the confession was being played, Hensley stared at the defense table while he listed to himself on the tape. As the hearing continued, Little questioned Moore about how many times Hensley was informed of his constitutional rights, producing three separate documents from three separate dates where Hensley had acknowledged them in writing. Steve Wenke, Hensley’s attorney, then questioned Moore about a “pre-interview” that Moore did with Hensley just prior to starting the recording. Wenke asked Moore the purpose of speaking to Hensley without the meeting being recorded. Moore replied that the purpose was to make Hensley comfortable, but also said that he showed Hensley a booking sheet with the name of Sarah Clemens on it. Clemens is the girlfriend of Hensley and is currently serving time in prison on an Obstruction of Justice charge related to the case. “You said you wanted to make him comfortable, but you show him a piece of paper with the name of his commonlaw wife on it?”, Wenke asked Moore. Moore said he could not recall any other specifics of the conversation with Hensley

prior to starting the recording. When Moore left the stand, both attorneys were given the opportunity to make final arguments. Wenke brought up the fact that Hensley had gone with law enforcement officers to search for the shell casing he said he picked up off the floor after shooting Carpenter. Wenke said Hensley was not accompanied by an attorney on the trip. Little produced a document saying that local attorney Val Lewis had been appointed by Common Pleas Judge Scott represent to Gusweiler Hensley in a prior theft case. She said Lewis was aware of the trip Hensley took with law enforcement officers. Nurre then ruled against the defense. Following the hearing, Little said “Every word that Hensley spoke to law enforcement officers and every word he spoke in court (in the Tincher trial) is now admissible. We are preparing for trial in August.” Hensley’s murder trial is scheduled to begin August 22.

Local families upset after Gist Settlement marker stolen CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 Negro slaves as well as provided funds for their relocation, the purchase of land and establishment of schools and homes. The executors of Gist’s will acquired over 2,000 acres of land in Ohio including two large tracts in Scott and Eagle Townships in Brown County in 1819. “More than 150 original families who settled this area still live here,” she added. “I feel as if someone has stolen my past. I didn’t see the marker for about a week, but then a cousin of mine came to my house one morning and asked me where the marker was, because it wasn’t at the cemetery anymore.” She continued, “We both jumped in our cars and went to

check it out. I looked all around to see if maybe someone had just thrown it in the woods or in a ditch somewhere.” Warner said the authorities suspect someone stole the sign thinking it was bronze and they could sell it for the metal. But she said the sign was not made of bronze. “I’ve called every recycling place I could find around here on the internet to ask them to watch for it,” Warner said. “My biggest fear is that some blackmarket recycling place might melt it down and then try to sell the metal.” But theft is not Warners only theory on why the marker may have been stolen. “When we were finally able to raise enough money to purchase that marker, it was one of the happiest days of my life,” she said, “But since that day, I’ve learned that not everyone in the community was happy about it. It’s my understanding that some people in the neigh-

borhood did not want the sign put up. I’m just hearing about this now, and it is upsetting to me that anyone could feel that way.” Warner said she has talked with Brown County Prosecutor Jessica Little about the marker and she mentioned the possibility of offering an award for the sign. “It would be nice if we could offer a reward,” Warner said, “But it took ten years to raise enough money for the marker, we have no way of offering a reward. All we can hope for now is that someone will recognize the marker and report it the the sheriff’s office or the thieves will return it .” Warner said their is a similar marker in Wahlsburg which is currently being watched closely. If anyone has any information on the missing marker, please contact the Brown County Sheriff’s Department at (937) 378-4435.

if someone is convicted on a felony charge. Crawford said that some people may not realize that when they sign an application for benefits, that gives permission for investigators to look for possible fraud. Crawford added that federal rules relating to food stamp fraud require someone who is found receiving unauthorized benefits to lose their food stamps for one year. A second offense nets a two year ban on benefits and a third offense will cause someone to lose benefits for life. Crawford said that anyone wishing to report benefit fraud can do so anonymously by calling the Department of Job and Family Services at (937) 3786104. Kidwell stressed that the collection efforts should not deter potential clients from applying for benefits. “If people are eligible for benefits and are honest with their case worker, we can make sure they are getting the benefits they are entitled to”, she said.

Eastern hosts several local teams at annual shootout By Andrew Wyder The Brown County Press

The Brown County Press/ANDREW WYDER

Eastern’s Tressie Lewis drives toward the basket against Western Brown at the Lady Warriors annual shootout last Thursday, June 30.

The Eastern girls basketball team hosted their annual summer shootout last Thursday, June 30 at the Eastern High School and Eastern Junior High School gyms with several local teams participating. In addition to the host Lady Warriors, Georgetown, Western Brown, Ripley, North Adams, Manchester and Blanchester participated in the day’s slate of games. Eastern coach John Burrows said the event went well. “We had seven teams out there and they seemed to compete really well against each other,” he said. All four local teams used the competition the event provided to work on different aspects of their respective games as their summer work winds down. Georgetown won all three of their games on the afternoon. Lady G-Men coach Bernie Cropper said he was pleased with the way his team played, especially on the defensive side of the ball.

“I thought that all three games the girls played hard and well defensively,” he said. He also said that the win against North Adams, a comeback win after being down by more than 10 points, was a good game for his team during the summer. Just like the Lady G-Men, Ripley finished the day unblemished. They, too, won all three of their games. Though he wasn’t able to make it there to coach, Lady Jays coach Chris Coleman said his assistants who were at the shootout told him the team played well. Coleman also said that shootouts are just another outlet for work to get done. “We use them as a chance to get out and play,” he said. Western Brown was nearly the third unbeaten team but ended up finishing their day with two wins and a loss after losing a close game to North Adams in their final game. First year Lady Broncos coach Kyle Fender said he thought his team played well defensively. He also said he thought his team played the best they had all summer in a victory over Eastern.

Hannah Wiesenhahn looks to make a move to the basket as her Lady Broncos took on North Adams at the Eastern shootout last Thursday, June 30.

However, with the team being a bit shorthanded and it being summer, Fender said it was more of an opportunity for the coaches and players to tinker with different parts of their approaches. “It’s kind of an experimental time for me,” he said. “For the girls, it’s a time they can work on their games.” It, too, was a day for improvement and experimenting for the Burrows and his Lady Warrior squad. The young and inexperienced team played better as the day went on as they finished their day with a win

against Blanchester. They finished their shootout with a 1-3 record. Burrows said he saw his young players start to get better as the day went on. He said that helped him find out a little more about what he might be able to do with the squad when the season gets started. “I can see who can play and where they can play,” he said. The shootout was the end, or very near the end, for most of the teams summer basketball activities. Most will not be back in action until practice starts back up in October.

American Modified Series invades Moler Raceway Park By Mike Goins Contributor A strong field of 42 modifieds were on hand for the second ever visit of the American Modified Series. Starting with qualifications, it was Greensburg, KY’s Bryan Barber taking the overall fast time and $100 bonus with a 13.966 lap. In the heat race action it was Michael England, Broc Burton, Bryan Barber and Joey Kramer claiming heat race wins while Rick Curtin and Shawn Tolson claimed Bmain checkers. In the feature event, it was Bryan Barber out front at the drop of the green with England and Kramer chasing. Following a restart on lap 11 it was England out front but the man on the move was Matt Hamilton, as he was battling Barber for second spot. On lap 19 Hamilton would make contact with the outside wall and bring out a caution. On the restart it was once again England out front, but many eyes were on Weasel Rhodes and John Demoss as both had charged their way into top six positions. Despite a couple of late restarts, it was England of Glasgow, KY claiming his second career AMS victory while Rhodes would inch by Barber to claim second spot. Following Barber in the top five were Doug Adkins and Devin Gilpin. John Demoss (who

started 21st) was the hard charger as he passed 15 cars in the feature event to take home sixth position while Joey Kramer ran seventh followed by Broc Burton, Jeff Bland and Pete Holt rounding out the top ten positions. In the Sunesis Construction Late Models, it was a two-for night as the June 10th makeup event started the evening’s program with Edinburgh, IN’s Chad Stapleton claiming his second career feature victory at Moler Raceway Park (MRP). Stapleton would lead start to finish as he beat Barry Doss at the green flag and, following some close racing between the two, would pull away in the later stages of the race to claim the victory in his Rite-Way Construction, Skeletor Core, Tasty Shop, Rogers Bar sponsored machine. Doss would come home second followed by Jeff Alsip, Brian Gray and Roger Ruark. In the nights regular program it was a different story as Jason Jamison (who was not entered in the make-up feature) would claim his second feature in a row by leading all 25 laps. Doss would come home second in that feature as well with Wayne Chinn barely beating a hard charging Robby Hensley for third position. Hensley (who started 12th) would come home fourth with Jeff Alsip in fifth spot. Jamison and Doss were both victorious in heat

race action. Controversy would cloud the Big Red Book Street Stock division as the top two cars tangled coming for the checkered flag, resulting in Jeremy Bretz crossing the line first after coming off of turn four in third position. The battle up front was between Bub Balsley and Jeremy Scott but coming to the checkered flag they tangled allowing Bretz to take the win in his Pendleton Truck Sales, Blakes Tire & Automotive, Weeks Wrecker Service sponsored machine. Shannon Enoch came home second followed by Paul Baker, Chad Barr and Todd Anstaett. In heat race action it was Scott and Bretz claiming wins. In the Holman Motor Chevette division, it looked like Rusty Yarger was going to claim yet another win in his #22 machine as he steadily was stretching out his lead but

with four laps remaining his car suddenly slowed and brought out a caution, which allowed Jeff Watson to take over the top spot which he was able to hold onto and claim his second feature victory in a row in his Verdon Auto Service, Harmony Hair Salon, Rod to Wrenches, LT 1 Carburetors sponsored car. Watson was pressured by Paul Luers throughout the final four laps but to no avail as Luers would claim second followed by Miles Tarvin, Sean Jones and Jim Hunt. Yarger and Watson would claim heat race victories. At Intermission there was a fantastic fireworks show from Phantom Fireworks, Amelia, OH!!

This year 71 runners got up early on the Fourth of July and ran or walked the 5K (3.1 miles) to help the group begin their fundraising for the next group of senior basketball players who will be awarded the scholarships. Nathan Hauke was the overall winner of the race as he crossed the finish line with a time of 17:23.59 The top five runners in each of the four age groups-male and female 40 and older as well as male and female 40 and under--received medals for their excellent times. The top eight walkers were also honored for quick pace. The top finishers in each group were: Female under 40:Kim Hertlein Agen, Kendra Massey, Alison Prine, Melissa Yockey and Tressie Lewis.

& A Nature Lovers Dream in Desirable Subdivision 134 Liming Farm Road, Mt. Orab, Ohio 45154


Almost time for C.A.M.P. Come Aug. 7, 2011, as young people stream into the Resident Camping Area of Tar Hollow, it will be the opening of the 56th annual C.A.M.P. Which stands for Constructing Assured and Motivated People. This multi award- winning youth program is a faith-based (but completely interdenominational) camp for young people grades 6 through recent H.S. grads. The campers sleep in log cabins in the Tar Hollow Forest with a counselor/camper ration of at least one to seven. They swim, fish, and boat in a beautiful little lake (now sporting a brand new waterslide!) Over 20 areas of interest are offered by means of both morning and

afternoon classes, such as sports of all kinds, rappelling, crafts, drama, choir, band, art, photography, nature, journalism, and more. All classes are taught by qualified instructors. It is because of this volunteer staff that this magnificent program can be offered for just $215.00 per camper for the entire week! That amount doesn’t just cover room and board, but a camp t-shirt, camp photo, supplies for all classes, treats, field trips, and more! To register your youngsters for C.A.M.P., go to and follow the prompts. For more information feel free to call the Brizius at (937) 365-1388.
