Meadowwood­closing­its­doors BY Wayne Gates The Brown County Press Meadowwood Care Center in Georgetown is shut-

ting its doors after losing Medicare and Medicaid funding. Approximately sixty patients will be moved to

other facilities beginning Feb. 4. 82 employees will also lose their jobs. The funding was pulled

by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, a part of the federal Department of Health and Human Services. Meadowwood was cited for four violations in August of last year and did not correct them within a six month deadline. If that happens, CMS rules state that funding automatically ceases. Meadowwood Owner and Administrator Jack Crout said the decision will be a life and death one for some of his residents. “People are going to die because of this”, Crout said. “When you move someone from a nursing home into another nursing home, ten percent of them are going to die just from the move...and I think it could even be higher than that.” Regarding the deficien-

cies cited by inspectors from the Ohio Department of Health, Crout said, “These violations had absolutely nothing at all to do with patient care.” According to the inspection survey, dated Jan. 17, the four violations all had to do with training and the living environment within the facility. The first violation was cited under the “Housekeeping and Maintenance Services” category. It reads; “Based on observation and interview, the facility failed to ensure carpeting was maintained free of stains and disrepair in the corridors within the residents living area.” The form then documents areas of the building where the carpet is stained or showing disrepair. A violation of the

“Safe/Functional/Sanitary/Comfortable Environment” category reads; “Based on observation and interview, the facility failed to ensure the wall next to the ice machine in the nutrition center was free of mold and mildew, ceiling tiles and walls were free of water damage and stain and carpet in common areas was free of disrepair.” The form then documents specific instances. A violation of the “Maintains Effective Pest Control” category reads; “...the facility failed to ensure an effective pest control program was in place.” Investigators determined that a pest control company had not visited the facility since August of 2012 due to an outstanding balance.

Missing­woman­found Four­charges­dropped dead­near­Russellville as­Crane­trial­begins BY Wayne Gates The Brown County Press A Georgetown woman missing since Dec. 9 has been found dead near Russellville. Brown County Sheriff’s Office Chief Deputy John Schadle said that a man found a car parked in the woods on Jan. 30 and reported the discovery. When deputies arrived, they found the body of 49 year old Rhonda Cheesman. Schadle said that when investigators arrived at the car, “They noted things that were consistent with it being a sui-

cide. They didn’t observe anything that would indicate foul play of any kind. The coroners office was notified and the scene was turned over to the coroner.” Brown County Coroner Dr. Judith Varnau said that Cheesman’s death has been ruled as suspicious. Her body had been sent to Montgomery County for an autopsy to determine cause of death. Schadle said that photographs of the scene were taken in case a homicide investigation is requested by Varnau. The discovery of

Cheesman’s body is the first test of the newly implemented policy of the Sheriff’s Office to be “hands off” at death scenes that are not ruled as homicides. “I spoke to Dr. Varnau by telephone and she indicated that it was a suspicious death”, Schadle said. Schadle said that he told Dr. Varnau “that it would be a coroner’s case unless she ruled it a homicide, and if so, she could follow the letter of the law, advise (Brown County Prosecutor) Jessica Little, turn over her autopsy reports and things and then CONTINUED ON PAGE 9

Crane was charged with 11 drug related offenses in connection with the death of his wife, Christine Crane, in March of 2011. After the first week of the trial, Crane is facing seven counts. After Brown County Prosecuting Attorney Jessica Little’s opening statement, Crane attorney Nick Ring moved for an aquittal, claiming Little failed to make the case against Crane in her opening argument.

Georgetown­to­save Chamber­honors­winners money­on­electric­bills BY Martha B. Jacob The Brown County Press

Members of the Georgetown Village Council utilities committee and Village Administrator Jeremy Germann met on January 14 with representatives from American Municipal Power Association (AMP) regarding negotiating leverage on contracts. During the January 24 meeting committee Chair, Drew Watson told council that his committee had learned that due to being part of a much larger negotiating pool, a contract with AMP would save utility customers money. “American Municipal

Power Association is a non-profit organization,” Germann told council, “It works with cities and municipalities to purchase power. They have a team of attorneys who study the trends in electricity. They can help small municipalities to purchase electricity at a lower rate. Germann continued, “Right now when we negotiate our power rates we’re negotiating for the 4,300 people who live in the Georgetown. If we’re with AMP, we would be able to leverage with the 4 million residents that they represent.” Germann further explained with an example, saying that under the village’s current contract Georgetown will be charged $64.13 MW ($3,642,405) in 2015 as a single entity. If the village was working with AMP the proposed rate for 2016 would be $55.16 MW ($3,152,152) and for 2017 it would be $57.20MW ($3,287,880). “This translates to millions in potential savings compounded over the next decade,” Germann said. Germann told council

that there is a charge to become a member of AMP based on the number of kilowatts used by the village. For each year of membership, it would cost the village, approximately $11,000. “But if the negotiated contract works, it would be an additional $30,000, so it would be a little bit more than $41,000. That seems like a lot of money, but if you look at the savings we’ll be getting overall, it’s a tremendous benefit to the customers here in town.” Germann said that just going on the current rates the village will be paying in 2015, if AMP negotiated a deal today, it would go down by $400,000 in 2016 and $250,000 in 2017. “The great thing about this is that there’s no longterm commitment,” Germann told council, “The contract we have with DP&L expires in two years.” He said that AMP provides safety training or electrical crew’s, consulting services for large projects and mutual aid during disasters.

This architect’s drawing (Peterman Associates, Inc.) shows a beautiful 45 unit senior residence which may be built in Mt. orab, if funding is approved through the ohio Tax Credit Assistance Program.

New senior residence complex could be coming to Mt. Orab by early 2014 BY Martha B. Jacob The Brown County Press If all goes as planned, construction on a new senior residence apartment complex in the Village of Mt. Orab could begin by January next year, according to Village Mayor Bruce Lunsford. “A residential developer from Miller Valentine Residential Development, Pete Schwiegeraht, met with Mt. Orab council a couple weeks ago,” Lunsford explained. “They shared an architects drawings of the proposed apartment complex. Council was asked for a letter of support for the plans and of course they were happy to do it. This will be really good for residents 55 years old and older in Mt. Orab.” The complex will be built behind the Best Western Motel located on Leininger Street in Mt. Orab and will face a wooded area. Miller-Valentine Group, Cincinnati, has been developing, building and managing senior housing projects for over 20 years. The group spear-headed senior

housing projects in Cincinnati, Jacksonville, FL, Dayton, and Springfield. “This is an exciting project for us to take on,” said Schwiegeraht. “We will apply for funding through the Tax Credit Assistance Program, made available through the Ohio Housing Finance Agency (OHFA).” The OHFA has approved more than $6.3 million for affordable senior housing communities across Ohio. The funds provide flexible, low-interest financing for affordable housing developments in Ohio. “We have what we need to submit our application to be considered for the funding,” he added. “Our application has to be in by February and we should have a response by July. If we get the funding, which I anticipate we will, we will move forward and could begin construction as early as this time next year.” The senior residence will consist of one and two bedroom apartments, all 100 percent accessible to residents and will be energy efficient. “The complex will have

45 units available to seniors who are 55 and older,” Schwiegeraht said. “But it offers a lot more than just a residence.” Schwiegeraht described each apartment as universally designed, energy star heating system and appliances. Each unit includes a laundry room with washer/dryer hookups, walk-in closets, full bath, breakfast bar/island, oversized vanity/side drawers, adjustable shelving in linen closet and a fully accessible roll-in shower. “These will be very private apartments for residents.”, Schwiegeraht said. “An overall common area that 2,520 square feet will also be provided. It includes an office, a large fitness room, a computer room a large lounge area and a theater room over 200 square feet. “The landscaping will include an outdoor recreational area and other outdoor spaces that will include tables and benches and a large grill. We’ve thought of everything to make this senior residences facility as comfortable as possible.”

‘Community Reader Day’ at Sardinia Elementary hosts Brown County Sheriff Several local members from the Sardinia community were invited to participate in ‘Right to Read’ activities January 28 through February 1 at Sardinia Elementary. Monday, was community reader day. Among those who took time to read books to students included Superintendent of Eastern Local School District, Michelle Filon, school board member Vern Creighton, State Representative Doug Green and Brown County Sheriff Dwayne Wenninger. Wenninger said that he was happy when Sardinia Elementary School Principal Mike Bick asked him if he would read to the kindergarten class. “Our department has been trying to be more visible in all the schools in Brown County,” Wenninger said. “One of our officers walks through the school every day now at random times. It’s good for the kids to see us walking through the halls smiling, and speaking to them because, unfortunately, many of them only have bad memories of officers.” Wenninger read aloud a Dr. Seuss book to approximately 50 kindergartners who laughed intermittently at portions of the story. Kindergarten teachers Denise McIntosh and Marilyn Fryer, as well as principal Bick also listened to the

book reading. Afterwards, Sheriff Wenninger asked the children if they would like to ask him any questions. Instantly every hand went up and he began calling on students to ask their question. Expecting the children to ask about the book he had just read, one little boy promptly asked Sheriff Wenninger “when will you be a real officer?” Another student asked him why his shoes were so shiny and another asked if they could play dodge-ball now that the story was over. Yet another student raised her hand, waving it wildly from side to side, to hopefully be called on. When Sheriff Wenninger called on her for her questions, she pointed to a little girl sitting nearby and said I want Amber to ask a question. When Amber was called on, and asked if she had a question she softly answered “not really.” Wenninger and everyone else in the room chuckled at the kids questions. Then the sheriff asked the kids if they wanted him to read another book. All but about three or four hands instantly went up into the air. Then he asked the kids if they would rather ask more questions. Again, all but three or four hands shot into the air. One little boy stood up, pointed at Sheriff Wenninger and said, “you look like a cop.” At that, the sheriff re-

The Bible warns to beware of the Devil’s schemes. (II Corinthians 2. Ephesians 6) He wants to devour all in his path. That means all that is good and decent and beneficial in life he will destroy if we let him. For instance, under attack is our own Constitution. One man said the Constitution is a “charter of negative liberties.” [American Thinker. 2008] He meant that the Government is being restricted by the Constitution. Truth is, limited Government was what the Founders intended. Yet, some say, let’s change the Constitution and grow the Government. Sad. The day this article is being written we read where a Georgetown University Professor of Constitutional Law wrote to do away with the Constitution. Imagine that! [nytimes.com/2012/12/31/opinion] His article titled, ‘Let’s Give Up On The Constitution’, seems like a tongue-in-cheek article, but it is not. What happens if we in America throw out the Constitution? Chaos. That is putting it lightly. But in a most serious venture the Devil has been attacking the word of God since, well, since forever! A main intent of writing much of the New Testament epistles was to correct false and misleading doctrines that were coming into the New Testament church. The Devil was active at the churches’ founding. If he could just destroy and undermine the church he would be happy. Did he succeed? Can we say the Devil is alive and doing fine? We can point out all the churches of all makes and models on every street corner. But Jesus built his church. (Matthew 16:18) Note the church is singular – not that he will build his churches. Jesus established the New Testament church. All kinds of counterfeits have been brought about by the Devil. You can do that when you leave the authoritative word of God for man’s words. Leave the word of God and chaos results. Alive and doing fine!

We read recently where some preachers are re-examining Scriptures. [Jerome Taylor in THE INDEPENDENT] There is a lot of ‘re-examining’ going on today. They claim to have at one time preached against homosexuality. Now they look again to the Bible and found homosexuality is actually okay. When we leave the clear words of God, anything goes. Sad. Consider: The First Century Christians were immersed for the remission of sins and the gift of the Holy Spirit. There is no Christian found in the New Testament that was not immersed. What happened to Acts 2:38? In most churches it seems to have been deleted. Instead: Just say the sinner’s prayer. Just repent. Just start living a Christian life and you are a Christian. How many are walking this earth thinking they are saved but are not? The Devil is alive and doing fine! We find anything goes today in church. You can find what you are looking for by just going to the church of your choice. But we say go to a God established New Testament church, a church where the word is taught in ‘truth and love’. Paul writes: “Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will in all things grow up into him who is the Head, that is, Christ.” (Ephesians 4:15) Don’t change the Constitution if you want to survive as a Country. Most important, don’t change or ignore the complete words of God if you want to survive spiritually. Paul tells the Ephesian elders, “Therefore, I declare to you today that I am innocent of the blood of all men. For I have not hesitated to proclaim to you the whole will of God.” (Acts 20:26-27) Can you say those words as a follower of Christ? If you are not sure, come and visit us. The truth will save you! “All the churches of Christ send greetings.” Romans 16:16 Gary J Mattingly Fayetteville Church of Christ 513-875-3636

No simple solutions for gun issue PREFACE: Now that the Brown County Board of Education is entertaining school safety issues – especially with regard to firearms - it might be important to consider additional violence related factors. Notwithstanding the tragedies of Sandy Hook, Norway, West Virginia, Columbine, et. al.; think about the equally innocent and young fatalities of the Holocaust - victims from a country with the strictest of gun laws. We have never lived in a perfect world, we don’t now and, until the return/arrival of the Messiah we will never experience a utopian society. While you’re grieving for the above noted losses, try empathizing with the thousands of Americans who are spared rape, robbery, or murder. Spared because they, or someone else, did have a gun. Many of these incidents, usually ignored by the main stream media, are recorded by the NRA (http://www.nraila.org/gunlaws/armed-citizen.aspx). When solutions are raised the usual suspects include banning various types and kinds of weapons and/or their components in addition to the cry of, “more cops.” I am convinced we – all Americans - can agree that intentional, horrendous, homicidal acts (and the media coverage/portrayal thereof), are a complex situation. Hopefully, we can also agree that the current GUN FREE ZONES (read: self-defense free zones) don't work. America, since its inception, is a gun-culture society - that's not going to change. Not only do a huge number of citizens use guns for hunting, collecting, target shooting and self-protection, but employment and taxes generated by the firearm industry is intertwined with our economic status. Thus, if the culture can't be changed, it might be in American’s best interest to learn ways to live with it. PROBLEM: Defensive Protection. The knee-jerk re-

action has been to place uniformed police officers in each school. Certainly that would be a powerful method of protecting our children. However, the numbers don’t work. There are about 650K sworn law enforcement officers (LEO) in the USA and over 300K schools. Placing one officer plus the need to cover his/her off/sick days would increase the number of total LEOs by at least 50%. Most communities today are struggling to meet current payrolls where police departments consume up to half of city and county budgets. The NRA’s mantra of placing paid police officer in every school might just be a political ploy (http://home.nra.org/pdf/Tran script_PDF.pdf). They know of the economic fall-out, but

condition orange (high level of awareness) might be problematic. PROBLEM: Restrictions on firearms. Today’s anti-gun protagonist’s wish du jour is to limit the number of rounds a magazine can hold. They miss the obvious: a practiced shooter can change standardcapacity magazines very quickly – especially when no one is shooting back. In other words, in a "shooting gallery" the shooter has time to change low capacity magazines at his/her leisure. In still other words, there is little difference between a killer with a 30-round magazine, or one with five 6-round magazines. Well, maybe the shooter is at a disadvantage should the 30 rounder fail, whereas the CONTINUED ON PAGE 5

Fans don’t let fans drive drunk Make the right play for the big game to save your life and others The Ohio State Highway Patrol’s Ohio Traffic Safety Office (OTSO) and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) want to remind everyone that Fans Don’t Let Fans Drive Drunk. Please be sure to designate a sober driver if you plan to drink alcohol on Super Bowl Sunday. Super Bowl Sunday is one of America’s biggest and most entertaining national sporting events as friends and families gather to socialize and watch the game. During last year’s Super Bowl, the Patrol made 46 OVI-related arrests from Feb. 5, 2012, at 6 a.m. through Feb. 6, 2012, at 6 a.m. During this 24-hour reporting period, there were three fatalities and 193 injuries resulting from traffic crashes. One of the traffic fatalities and 16 of the injuries were from OVI-related

by taking this stand anyone who opposes it could be ostracized for being against protecting our children. In addition, it is a high level starting point where they can negotiate down to . . . (see following SOLUTION). SOLUTION: Encourage the placement of volunteer armed personnel in each school. Retired LEOs and civilians/parents who have undergone background checks and specialized training would be an economical and viable option. Butler County, Ohio is considering creating substitute teachers out of retired LEOs. This might work IF they can get enough retired LEOs to volunteer. Also, a police officer’s divided attention between teaching a class and staying in

LIeuTenanT RandY MCeLfReSH crashes. “While we want people to enjoy the big game, we want them to do so responsibly,” said Director Thomas Charles, Ohio Department of Public Safety. “We want everyone to take the appropriate steps to ensure they get home safely.” Getting caught driving while impaired will earn you a costly penalty from law enforcement, and may even result in losing your driving privileges. For bars and establishments, over-serving or serving underage patrons could also mean costly fines, suspension or revocation of their liquor permit. To help keep the roads safe this Super Bowl weekend, more than 81 local law enforcement agencies around the state will be conducting more than 1,925 hours of enforcement activity and 1,100 hours of saturation patrols, funded by federal grants provided through OTSO. “We can’t fight the battle against impaired driving on our own – we need your commitment to make our roads safe,” said Colonel John Born, Patrol superintendent. “You can contribute to a safer Ohio by actively influencing friends and family to make safe, responsible decisions -like planning ahead to designate a driver and insisting that everyone in the vehicle is buckled up.” Designating a sober driver should be on the top of everyone’s Super Bowl party list along with these tips to stay safe: If you are hosting a Super Bowl party: • Make sure all of your guests designate their sober drivers before kick-off or help arrange ride-sharing with other sober drivers.

• Serve plenty of food and non-alcoholic drinks. • Only serve alcohol to guests over 21 years of age. • Stop serving alcohol at the end of the third quarter of the game and begin serving coffee and dessert. • Keep the numbers for local cab companies handy, and take the keys away from anyone who is thinking of driving while impaired. • Take appropriate steps to prevent anyone from driving while impaired. • Be prepared for guests to spend the night if an alternative way home is not available. If you are attending a Super Bowl party or watching at a sports bar or restaurant: • Designate your sober driver before the party begins and leave your car keys at home if you plan to drink. • Avoid drinking too much alcohol too fast. Pace yourself—eat enough food, take breaks, and alternate with non-alcoholic drinks. • If you are a bar, permit holder or employee and have questions about over-serving or other liquor-permit related issues, contact one of the Ohio Investigative Unit’s (OIU) regional offices. Contact information is listed online at http://www.investigativeunit.ohio.gov. OIU offers free instruction on laws pertaining to the sale and/or consumption of alcohol and tobacco. Agents also cover topics such as false identification, employment of minors, along with penalties for those found in violation. • If you don’t have a designated driver, ask a sober friend for a ride home; call a cab, friend, or family member to come and get you. • Take appropriate steps to prevent anyone from driving while impaired. Remember, Fans Don’t Let Fans Drive Drunk. • Always buckle up – it’s still your best defense against other impaired drivers.

In the world of recycling there are typically two types of collection systems used to capture recyclable material. Those systems are known as dual stream and single stream collections in the recycling industry. If you recycle, chances are you have been participating in one or the other, but what do they actually mean? For the past few years Brown County residents using the community drop off boxes or participating in curbside recycling have been recycling in a dual stream system. A dual stream system requires the resident to separate recyclable materials into two different groups: commingled containers (plastic bottles, steel food cans, aluminum cans, and glass bottles) and mixed paper fibers (cardboard, magazines, newspaper, and junk mail). Although there are some advantages to this type of system, the major disadvantage is that it requires residents to divide the material into two groups before taking it to a community drop box or putting it out by the curb for pick up. The major advantage of single stream recycling is that there is no sorting or dividing of recyclable material required. As a result, single stream recycling has become the more popular option for collecting recyclable material. In a single stream system residents simply

The Green Corner

saM PerIn put both their commingled containers (plastic bottles, steel food cans, aluminum cans) and mixed paper (cardboard, newspaper, junk mail, and magazines) together into one receptacle. This simplifies the recycling process for residents since there is no sorting to keep track of. One can throw recyclable items into one bin instead of trying to figure out which item should go in which bin. Single stream also allows for the capture of more material as well due to its ease of use.

OPINION


The Brown County Press - Sunday, February 3, 2013 - Page 5

Duke Energy and its customers provide nearly $350,000 for HeatShare assistance The Salvation Army announced that it has received $349,000 from Duke Energy Ohio and its customers for the HeatShare program for 2013. HeatShare funds provide financial assistance to pay for utilities to those in desperate need. In many cases, these individuals and families face shut-off of utilities and possible eviction as a result of their inability to stay current on their utility bills. The HeatShare program became available to Duke Energy customers in Brown County on January 22. According to Mitch Sharp, director of the Brown County Salvation Army, he will receive $1,900 to help families in Brown County facing shutoff notices. “The Salvation Army here in Brown County will be able to help between 10 and 12 people facing shutoff notices from Duke Energy,” Sharp said. “we will have enough funds to give each of the qualified fami-

lies approximately $200.” The HeatShare funds come from multiple sources, including Duke Energy Ohio customers who voluntarily add a Heat Share contribution to their monthly bill, amounting to $107,000 this past year. Duke Energy Ohio provided a $100,000 donation, and then matched all customer and employee donations, dollar-for dollar, up to an additional $100,000. Finally, an additional $42,000 in funds was provided by Duke Energy Ohio as a result of their initiative to encourage customers to switch to paperless billing. For each Duke customer that switched to paperless billing during the campaign last year, $3 was donated by Duke Energy to the HeatShare program. “The HeatShare program has been helping local customers for many years, operating in Ohio since 1986,” explained Cindy Givens, program manager at Duke Energy in a press release. “We’re delighted to partner with our customers and The Salvation Army to provide this form of assistance

to those in need. We entrust this program to the care of The Salvation Army because we have confidence in their management and distribution of the funds.” “We’re privileged to be the channel through which these funds are managed and distributed,” state Major Hugh Steele, Divisional Commander for The Salvation Army in a press release. “The partnership with

Duke Energy has extended over many years, and we take seriously the responsibility of ensuring that those who come to us in need of assistance with their utility bills receive help.” Those seeking assistance can call The Salvation Army’s HeatShare hotline at 513-762-5636 for further guidance. The Brown County Salvation Army can be reached at (937) 378-6104 ext. 133.

No simple solutions for gun issue as debate continues to rage nationwide CONTINUED FROM PAGE 4 killer with back-up mags could just insert a fresh mag – one reason cops carry multiple magazines. SOLUTION: Repeal burdensome and un-American anti-gun laws. PROBLEM: Human Nature. Many American citizens are afraid of guns, per se. They tend to believe a person with a gun will resort to its use if ever provoked – such as over a parking dispute, family argument or to resolve matters of a personal nature. This reasoning is most likely due to the fear that that is what they would do if they had a gun. In other words, a hoplophobic reasons everyone thinks as they do – that if in possession of a firearm they don’t trust themselves not to use it for

anything other than self defense. There are tens of millions of gun owners who have and do engage in various quarrels and never resort to lethal force. SOLUTION: Institute mandatory classroom and range training. Beginning at an early age children should be taught the importance of self-defense, the inherent dangers of mishandling firearms, the power/life-ending use of such weapons and the legal consequences of the use of deadly force. The NRA’s Eddie Eagle Program (http://eddieeagle.nra.org/) is a great beginning in championing this endeavor. PROBLEM: Posting of Signs. Signs saying “No Guns Allowed” obviously are an encouragement to the criminal bent on violence. Entering these “Gun Free Zones” they tend to feel secure that there will be no resistance to their evil deeds (and they’re usually correct). SOLUTION: Perhaps, if we promoted the display of a sign saying: “CRIMINALS

NOTICE The Pike Township Board of Trustees is seeking to fill a vacancy on the Pike Township Zoning Committee. Individuals interested in serving in this voluntary position for a term of five years beginning January 1, 2013, are encouraged to send a letter of interest prior to the next regular meeting to be held Thursday, February 28 to: Pike Township, P O Box 95 Mt Orab, OH 45154 Submitted by Jenny Lind Conrad, Fiscal Officer 937 444 7418

BEWARE, PATRONS AND/OR EMPLOYEES MAY BE ARMED” (http://chuckkleinauthor.com/ Page.aspx/163/guns-in-theworkplace.html) the potential for criminal behavior will be significantly reduced. Even if there are no armed persons on location, it will give robbers/killers pause to rethink their plan A. PROBLEM: Recidivism Rates of Prisons. Our prisons have become a haven – a goal - for the uninitiated. There are a significant number of persons who want to be in prison. Here is the only place they enjoy free medical care, housing, food, clothing and – most important - status for their criminal conduct. In other words, it is not a punishment to be sent to prison, but a reward. In still other words, some of us have to be a victim so they can receive their reward. SOLUTION: Restructure the prison system to inflict real punishment. Make the criminal dread being sent-up. PROBLEM: Vicious and Gratuitous Media Violence. TV, movie productions and computer games glorify not only killing, but multiple and mass deaths, sans consequences to the victims and aggressors. SOLUTIONS: Electronic blocks such as parental controls are easily voided by today’s computer savvy kids and are no longer an effective means of protecting our children. We need to stop the depiction of violence before it’s distributed. While the braintweakers continue to debate the effects of violent visual media, censorship should be deployed over the industry. Yeah, I know the 1st Amendment says there is a right to freedom of speech. That "right," like the 2nd Amendment right to bear arms, is NOT an absolute. FINAL THOUGHTS: Of course it’s tragic when innocent children are killed, but also disparaging when the illinformed and cowards among us blame the inanimate gun for their loss. There are over 300M Americans and of those a tiny portion are killed by firearms - mostly black on black drug deals gone bad. (http://online.wsj.com/article/SB100014240527023048 30704577496501048197464. html). What we, the law-abiding and legally armed civilian members know is that there are more persons saved by the use or even the mere presence of a firearm than those illegally harmed by one. This I know! I wouldn’t be writing this now had I not had a gun with me on more than one occasion – not only as a police officer or licensed private detective, but as a civilian also. These accounts are documented in court records and in my books: (http://chuckkleinauthor.com/

Page.aspx/135/books.html http://chuckkleinauthor.com/P age.aspx/187/ohio-ccw-caseklein-vs-leis.html ). I’ll end this with questions I have previously put to antigunners – none of which have yet to provide an answer: Would You Feel Uncomfortable: * In the presence of an armed uniformed LEO? How 'bout a plain-clothes cop? An armed soldier? Someone like me, a former LEO, licensed and trained by the state to CCW? * Would it make a difference where you were - in a mall, on a street, in a school? In an unsecure building with “no guns allowed signs”? In an unsecure building with signs posted saying: “Criminals Beware, Patrons And/Or Employees May Be Armed”? * Where do you draw the line?

Fighting The Good Fight There are battles raging in the world today and have been from the day Adam and Eve were placed in the garden. God said, “But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil thou shalt not eat of it; for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.” Satan said, “Ye shall not surely die.” He lied. So Eve ate of the fruit. There has been conflict among men from that day to this. There are battles between children and parents, battles in the school, battles between adults and battles in marriages. Fiftyfour percent of first marriages end in divorce. Seventy-five percent of second and ninety percent of third marriages end in divorce. You will need God if you are going to have success in this world, your home, your life and your marriage. You cannot do it on your own. You need God and the only way to have God is through the person of Jesus Christ. Another one of Satan’s battles that is raging in the world today is the lack of discipline in the home, schools and the place of work. We need discipline in the world. Our children are in danger of growing up totally undisciplined. The problem is that the government has entered into the home and does not allow parents to properly discipline their children. Listen young people. If you will allow God’s discipline in your life, you will amount to something in this world. Your life will not go to ruin. It will not be a waste. In chapters sixteen and seventeen of I Samuel, a battle is fought. Picture in your mind this scene. On one mountain is the army of Israel, on the other, the army of Philistines. In between is a large valley. Everything is fairly equal until one object throws the battle in favor of the Philistines. This object is a giant named Goliath. He is an experienced soldier, trained in battle. He proceeds to challenge the army of God. Can you see him? He is over nine feet tall. He calls out, “Send me just one man to do battle with Whosoever prevails will win the entire war.” He challenges the whole army of the living God and proclaims that their God can do nothing to help them. Are you with me so far? What do you think? It is written in I Corinthians 1:27, “But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise, and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty... and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are.” What will God do? Will he bring a twelve-foot giant to fight against

DR. CHARLES SMITH MT. ORAB BIBLE BAPTIST CHURCH WWW.BBMTORAB.COM

the nine-foot giant, or will he bring a skinny young man? We all know the answer. It is young David. Listen, God brings his plan into focus. David’s father, Jesse, had eight sons of which David was the youngest. He was the baby of the family, a shepherd boy. He never had military training. He wasn’t strong or powerful. His father told him to take some goodies to his brothers, see how the battle was going and report back to him. Jesse had sent him out at just the proper time. When David got there, he saw the army of Israel on one mountain and the Philistines on the other. He ran into the camp of Israel to find out what was happening. He appraised the situation and said, “Is there not a cause?” He told them with God’s help he would fight the giant. David stepped out with just what he had and he fought. He made no arrangement for retreat. He didn’t back off. He stepped out with confidence in God. We should not make arrangements for retreat either. By faith, we should move forward. Sure, the devil attacks and it all depends on what you are going to do about it when he does. We do not have to be defeated. David slung his stone. The giant fell down dead and the army of the Philistines fled. “Greater is He that is in us than he that is in the world.” Look in I Samuel 16:13 and you will find why David was able to defeat the giant. It says, “and the Spirit of the LORD came upon David from that day forward.” From the time Samuel anointed David, “the Spirit of the LORD was upon him. The Bible states, “if God be for us, who can be against us?” No matter how it looks, what the odds, or how big the giant, you are on the winning side if you are on God’s side. I don’t know what habit you have, what you have done in the past, or what problems you have now. That’s your Goliath. What you need is some David-like faith. The battle you are having with Satan, which keep you from serving God, is not your battle. It is God’s. Will you let God help you win the battle?

Coburn stated “We had very deep concern about the lack of activity, and absolutely no contact with her family and friends. We were holding out hope that she would turn up, but unfortunately, that was not to be. Our hearts go out to Rhonda’s family and loved ones. Hopefully, at least this will allow them some closure.”

Man arrested in Aberdeen after car and foot chase On Tuesday, January 29, 2013 at approximately 4:45 p.m. while on patrol Chief Greg Caudill and Officer Joe Shook observed a late model red and black Dodge pick up truck turning left onto Black Gun Street off of west bound 52. With prior knowledge that Taylor Allan Fryman had a warrant out of Brown County Sheriffs Office and he has been traveling in that vehicle, the officers attempted to pull the vehicle over. Chief Greg Caudill and Officer Joe Shook was able to come in contact with that vehicle at the intersection of Black Gum Street and U.S. 41. Chief Caudill was the operator of the police vehicle, he then turned on the vehicles emergency lights, and siren. After the emergency lights were activated the operator failed to come to a stop and continued to travel north on U.S. 41. The vehicle reached a top speed of 50 mph. The vehicle then turns onto SR 763 and almost causes an accident while turning onto SR 763. However, the vehicle was able to come to a complete stop before striking Mr. Fryman’s vehicle. The officers were able to catch back up to the vehicle before in the bridge on SR

763. The vehicle then turns into the driveway of 1300 SR 763 and pulls next to the house at an angle. Before the vehicle was able to come to a complete stop Mr. Fryman exited the vehicle from the passenger side. The operator of the vehicle stayed in the vehicle. Mr. Fryman started running towards the woods at this resident. At this time Chief Caudill and Officer Shook get in a foot pursuit with Mr. Fryman. Mr. Fryman then cuts into the creek. A few seconds later Mr. Fryman then starts to exit the creek on the left side, which is when Officer Shook runs around the creek to block him off. Chief Caudill was behind him when Mr. Fryman ran through the creek. Mr. Fryman then notices us around him and ends up lying on the ground with his hands in the air. Chief Caudill then approaches him and controls his hands to put him in handcuffs. As we are walking back Mr. Fryman continued to state the operator had nothing to do with it. During the investigation the operator of the vehicle was identified through Ohio LEADS as Kyra Christina Combess. She stated Mr. Fryman told her to keep driving. Both suspects were charged with failure to comply with order of signal of Police Officer, both misdemeanors to the first degree. Ripley responded to assist in the investigation. Ripley also transported Mr. Fryman to the Aberdeen Police Department. Officer Matthew Disney then transported him to the Brown County Sheriffs detention center for his warrant.

The Catholic Rural Life Conference of the St. Martin Deanery will hold its regular meeting on Thursday evening, Thursday, February 14, 2013. On the agenda is a discussion of what activities we should give priority in 2013. The meetings are open to anyone who shares our goals of bringing a Christian perspective to life in rural areas, preserving our rural heritage and working to promote dialogue between rural and urban leaders. The meeting will be held at St. Mary’s church hall in Arnheim at 7 p.m. For directions or more information, call Pat Hornschemeier at (937) 378-4769 (day) or (937) 378-4560 (evening).

putting together the budget for 2013,” Germann said, “One of the things the police department requested was a vehicle. In 2012 the village selected not to purchase a police cruiser because of budget constraints. But we did put money in there towards the purchase of a vehicle in 2013.” Germann reported to council that over the last four months he had been working with Lt. Robert Freeland comparing quotes to purchase a 2013 Dodge Charger for the Georgetown Police Department. After receiving several quotes on costs, Germann recommended accepting the lowest quote from Griswold Installation Service for $34,912. He stated that $25,000 has been allocated in capital outlay towards the purchase with the remaining balance being split over 2014 and 2015. “The car itself roughly costs about $24,000,” Germann said, “The rest is the

cost for putting a cage inside it, the light bar and putting all the equipment inside the vehicle so that it’s ready to roll.” Council unanimously approved a motion to purchase the new vehicle. Police Chief Buddy Coburn added that realistically it would take between 80 and 90 days to receive the vehicle once it was ordered. Joey Rockey, Georgetown Fire Chief, gave council an organized list of all the runs his department made in 2012, calling it an average year. He said about 52% of the 189 emergency calls were within the Village of Georgetown. Mutual aid calls were answered three times for Ripley, three times for Higginsport, three times for Mt. Orab, four times for Russellville, once for Sardinia and two times for Hamersville. The next meeting for Georgetown Council will be on Thursday, February 14 at 7:30 p.m.

“We will do whatever we can do within the law to assist Dr. Varnau.”, Wenninger said. Schadle said the current dispute centers on Varnau’s written acceptance of Sheriff’s Department policy at death scenes. He said until procedures are documented and agreed upon, his deputies feel uncertain about procedure. Schadle said that had an agreement been in place, the BCSO would have rendered more assistance to Dr. Varnau. “Had she been willing to accept our policy as proper and give us written notice that she accepted it, we would have treated that scene as a homicide. We would have gathered evidence, towed the car back to our office for processing, and notified the family. We are not required under the law to do that, but we extended that courtesy to Dr. McKinley because we had a firm understanding of procedure with him. Dr. Varnau was not willing to acknowledge our procedures as proper, so we cannot extend her the same courtesy. Instead, we are following Ohio law which says that the Coroner is responsible for all investigations at all deaths that are not ruled a homicide.” Georgetown Police Chief Forest “Buddy” Coburn released a statement on the death of Cheesman. It read in part; “(Our) department put in countless hours in investigating her disappearance, and made dozens of phone calls to people who were known to have had any association with her. Her phone and bank records were subpoenaed and monitored by the police. Chief Forrest” Buddy”

CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 when Jessica contacts us, we will assign investigators to do any investigation needed.” Schadle said that the Sheriff’s Department was being forced to strictly follow Ohio Law because Dr. Varnau has so far refused to acknowledge in writing that she finds the death scene policy of the Sheriff’s Department acceptable. For her part, Varnau said that she was assisted in her investigation of Cheesman’s death by the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation and Identification “because I could not get the Sheriff’s Office to respond.” In a telephone call to the Brown County Press on Jan. 30, Dr. Varnau said she is working on trying to fix her relationship with the Brown County Sheriff’s Office. “I have initiated an attempt to repair the working relationship that I have with the sheriff’s office with the assistance of a third party. Privately, I am trying to go through different departments to make sure that we have an amicable relationship.” Varnau said she has not spoken to anyone in the Sheriff’s Department directly, and did not name the individual who would serve as an intermediary, saying that the person had not been designated yet. “After my interaction last night, it was something that I definitely think that...for the better care of our decedents, we definitely need to have a good working relationship.” Brown County Sheriff Dwayne Wenninger said he is always willing to talk, and welcomes the effort to build a positive working relationship.

Get the facts If your canine companion is more family member than pet, you may be in the habit of sharing the foods your family loves with him. Although some people foods are fine in moderation, this is definitely not the case with chocolate. Chocolate can sicken and even kill dogs, and it is one of the most common causes of canine poisoning, veterinarians tell WebMD. Veterinarian Michelle DeHaven says the worst case of chocolate poisoning she ever saw happened when some owners fed their eightpound poodle a pound of chocolate on his birthday. “We had to treat the dog with fluids and antiseizure medication for five days," says DeHaven, who practices in Smyrna, Ga. "Every time we stopped the meds he would start seizuring again. You wouldn’t feed a kid a pound of chocolate, but they fed it to a small dog.” No amount of chocolate is OK for your dog to consume. Dark chocolate and baker’s chocolate are riskiest; milk and white chocolate pose a much less serious risk. What Makes Chocolate Poisonous to Dogs?

Chocolate is made from cocoa, and cocoa beans contain caffeine and a related chemical compound called theobromine, which is the real danger. The problem is that dogs metabolize theobromine much more slowly than humans, Denver veterinarian Kevin Fitzgerald, PhD, tells WebMD. “The buzz we get from eating chocolate may last 20 to 40 minutes, but for dogs it lasts many hours,” he says. “After 17 hours, half of the theobromine a dog has ingested is still in the system.” Theobromine is also toxic to cats, but there are very few reported cases of theobromine poisoning in felines because they rarely eat chocolate. Dogs, on the other hand, will eat just about anything. Even small amounts of chocolate can cause vomiting and diarrhea in dogs. Truly toxic amounts can induce hyperactivity, tremors, high blood pressure, a rapid heart rate, seizures, respiratory failure, and cardiac arrest. Dogs and Chocolate: How Much is Too Much? The more theobromine a cocoa product contains, the more

poisonous it is to your dog. Unsweetened bakers chocolate contains about 390 milligrams of theobromine per ounce -- about 10 times more than milk chocolate and more than twice as much as semi-sweet chocolate. White chocolate contains very little theobromine. According to the Merck Veterinary Manual, one ounce of milk chocolate per pound of body weight is potentially lethal. But the real danger lies with dark chocolate. Merck warns that deaths have been reported with theobromine doses as low as 115 milligrams per kilogram (2.2 pounds) of body weight. So 20 ounces of milk chocolate, 10 ounces of semi-sweet chocolate, and just 2.25 ounces of baking chocolate could potentially kill a 22pound dog, Fitzgerald says. Serious toxic reactions can occur with ingestion of about 100

to 150 milligrams of theobromine per kilogram of body weight. WebMD Pet Health Feature

Sluggish G-Men hold off Batavia Quick start helps BY Andrew Wyder The Brown County Press There isn’t much doubt that the Georgetown boys basketball team didn’t put foward its finest performance of the season on Tuesday night. The G-Men never found their rhythm against visiting Batavia and seemed helpless as the visitors gradually rallied from double digit deficit to take their first lead with just 4:40 left in the game. And even as the G-Men held off the Bulldogs for a 48-41 win to pick up their 15th victory in 16 games, there wasn’t much celebration coming from the Georgetown locker room after the game. They knew that they had dodged the proverbial bullet on a night where Georgetown coach Jerry Underwood felt his team did little all that well. “It was a struggle,” Underwood said. “We did win and I’ve been around long enough (to know) you take them when you can get them. “But at the same time there’s got to be a realization that is not the level that we’ve been playing and that is not the level we need to play in order to finish the season the way we want to.” Despite Underwood and G-Men forward Nathan Lewis both feeling the GMen lacked their normal intensity from the start, Georgetown was able to create some separation in the first half. Thanks in large part to the offensive effort of Lewis, the G-Men built as big as a 14 point lead in the first half. In fact, it was off Lewis points that the GMen extended their lead that far two different times. The senior forward scored 15 of his game-best 22 points, to go along with 12 rebounds, in the opening two quarters to help the G-

Nathan Lewis shots a jump shot during the first half of Georgetown’s win over Batavia on Tuesday night.

Men build a 26-15 lead that looked plenty big enough to stand up to a Bulldogs squad struggling to hit shots. “I shot well in warm-ups so I thought, ‘Why not?’” Lewis said of looking to score early. But it was when the teams reconvened on the court for the second half that things started to change. Batavia scored the first 10 points of the second half and outscored the G-Men 12-2 in the third quarter, with Georgetown’s only points coming on a pair of Lewis free throws with 1:41 left in the quarter. It wasn’t just that the GMen weren’t scoring or that

the Bulldogs were finding it easier to do so, it was how it happened. The G-Men struggled to do many things that seemed to come to the group with ease as they opened the season with 14 wins in their first 15 games. They weren’t getting out and running, they struggled to just pass the ball to one another and turned the ball over eight times in the third quarter alone. “Our intensity just gave,” Lewis said. “We didn’t show up the third quarter and that also showed.” That third quarter flummoxed the G-Men’s coach. “Two points in the quarter,” Underwood said. “I wouldn’t have dreamed

that at anytime. But, you know, we survived it.” Even though the Bulldogs controlled the third quarter, they still found themselves behind by a point, 28-27, as the game entered its final quarter. It was no easy task -- the Bulldogs fought all the way back to take their first lead, 33-32, on Kyle Schmidtgen’s layup with 4:40 left and again 38 seconds later – but the G-Men clawed their way to a win. Jake Cropper completed a three point play by hitting the free throw after getting a jumper in the lane to fall as he was being fouled with 3:40 left to get the G-Men the lead back, 37-35, before his backcourt mate Jacob Miller put the game away. On a night where Lewis almost singlehandedly carried the G-Men through three quarters – he scored 17 of their 28 points by the time the final quarter got underway – Miller finished the Bulldogs off. He went to the free throw line 10 times in the fourth quarter and hit every one, including six in the final 32 seconds to ice the victory. Miller, who along with Cropper and Lewis, was one of only three G-Men to score, ended the night with 19 points thanks in large part to his 13-13 effort from the foul line. The G-Men shot 23-29 from the line as a team. “It’s bailed us out in many games, even the games we’ve played well and it’s been tight,” Underwood said of the G-Men’s strong foul shooting. “We’ve been fortunate to get the players we want at the free throw line. Both Jakes do a really good job of stepping up there and hitting.” Not one G-Men player seemed all that excited about picking up the win on Tuesday night, most likely because they realized, as Underwood had CONTINUED ON PAGE 14

Lady Warriors slip past Manchester BY Andrew Wyder The Brown County Press For one quarter, at least, last Thursday night, the Eastern girls basketball team didn’t play all that bad. The Lady Warriors shot the ball well, played solid defense and built a lead – 18-4 – that seemed to put them in prime position for an easy victory over a depleted and young Manchester team. That’s not exactly how it played out, though. Battling foul trouble and a pesky Lady Greyhounds group that just refused to give in, the Lady Warriors

struggled offensively the final three quarters and Manchester slowly climbed back into the game and got within single digits late as Eastern was outscored the final three quarters 30-27. But thanks in large part to that big opening quarter, and a few key free throws down the stretch, Eastern held on for a more difficult than it looked 45-34 Southern Hills Athletic Conference win. “We just don’t do things that we need to do to put a game away,” Eastern coach John Burrows said. “Too many turnovers. We got out of running an offense too many times.” CONTINUED ON PAGE 14

for easy looks at the basket and for trips to the free throw line after forcing 10 of Manchester’s 27 turnovers in the opening quarter. By the time Johnson hit a 3-pointer after a particularly well executed offensive set with 1:01 left in the first quarter, the Lady Warriors had built their 18-4 lead. “We go through such spurts,” Burrows said. “We played really well starting out. Hit some shots and things. Then we stopped running an offense. Then we stopped making shots.” The Lady Greyhounds found a little more traction offensively as the second quarter opened and cut their lead to 11, 26-15, when Rideout grabbed a loose ball and layed it back in with 2:18 left in the half. Though they were starting to struggle offensively as the second quarter wore on, the Lady Warriors did enough to keep their double digit lead. Baskets from Kaylie Ruckel and Madeline Bornstein in the final two minutes of the half helped Eastern take a 15 point lead, 30-15, into halftime. Eastern’s struggles -- particularly turning the ball over, which they did 24 times on the night -- continued into the third quarter but, again, they had done

enough to built a 17 point lead, 38-21, by the time the quarter came to an end. But the Lady Greyhounds just kept chipping away and finally broke through with just three minutes left. An Adams jumper was the first of six straight Manchester points that helped the visitors cut the Lady Warriors lead to 10. Lauren Towne, fresh off the bench, calmly drilled a pair of free throws to push the Lady Warriors back on top by 12, 43-31, before Rideout hit a 3-pointer to cut the Eastern lead to nine with 18 seconds left. “They’re not gonna quit. They were coming back on us,” Burrows said. “They smelled blood so they were coming at us.” The visitors may have put up a valiant effort but the Lady Warriors had done enough in that first quarter to keep their positive play of late going. The win was the Lady Warriors third in their last four on the heels of a brutal stretch of games, and the Lady Warriors third-year

coach hoped to see his team continue its upward trajectory as the tournament looms around the corner. They started their march toward the sectional with a 41-29 loss to LynchburgClay on Monday night. The loss didn’t disappoint Burrows too much despite continued offensive struggles because his team continues to play hard and play strong defense. “Hopefully we can get that game and go into the rest of the season strong and go into the tournament ready to go,” Burroughs said. “That’s what we try to play for.” Manchester (7-10, 5-6 SHAC) 34 Adams 2 6 10, Johnson 2 0 4, Rideout 5 3 14, Casey 3 0 6, T.

The Lady Warriors opened up the big lead because they were executing on both ends of the floor. Offensively, they hit some shots and were aggressive on the offensive boards.

lady warriors: Big first quarter key to win

BY Andrew Wyder The Brown County Press AMELIA—Tough losses have become an unfortunate byproduct of how the Western Brown boys basketball team plays. The Broncos are a scrappy bunch who defend, force turnovers and simply refuse to give in no matter the task at hand. And because of that, most nights this season the Broncos have found themselves fighting for a win with little time left on the clock. Of the Broncos 10 losses so far this season, seven have been by less than five points. Their latest setback, a 48-47 loss to Southern Buckeye ConferenceAmerican Division leader Amelia, was likely the Broncos toughest yet. They battled a bigger Barons squad all night long, taking leads of as much as eight, and responding to every one of Amelia’s rallies. But when all was said and done, it was Amelia guard Trevor Simon’s 3pointer with 1:13 left that helped the Barons to their second one point win over the Broncos this season. After what he believed to be his team’s best effort of the season, Western Brown coach Greg Foster was noticeably frustrated that his team had suffered a loss on a night they played so well. Much, if not all, of Foster’s frustrations were the calls, or non-calls, the officials made, particularly an Amelia foul of Eli Fulton as he shot the ball with 8.8 seconds left but was called on the floor and not on the shot. “It was one of the best games we played – by far,” Foster said after the game. “We played defense. (We) took care of the basketball (and) got shots when they were there. “The referees just cost those kids that just went out there and busted their butts and played as hard as they possibly could… they just cost them that basketball game.” Behind the play of Caden Piatt, who scored a team-best 19 points, and Fulton, the Broncos opened up an eight point lead four different times in the second quarter as the visitors held off each Baron rally. By the time Fulton hit three of four free throws on back-to-back trips with 1:01 left in the first half, the Broncos had built a 30-22 lead. But as well as they had played in the first half, the Broncos momentum was all but gone by the time halftime arrived. Amelia scored the final six points of the half to cut the Broncos lead to just two at the break, thanks in large part to a trio of Western Brown turnovers in the final 50 seconds of the half.

Western Brown’s eli Fulton goes up and is fouled with eight seconds left in the Broncos game last Friday night. It was called a foul before the shot.

Foster felt some Amelia defensive adjustments were the cause. “We froze in our spots instead of reacting to it,” Foster said by phone on Wednesday. “We end up turning the ball over. Those were the biggest points in the game.” Two Garrett Weaver baskets to open the third quarter got the Barons a 32-30 lead a little less than three minutes in before the Broncos regrouped. A Piatt 3-pointer got the lead right back for the visitors before a Fulton layup and a pair of Spencer Allen free throws gave Western Brown a 37-32 lead with 3:59 left in the third quarter. But the Barons weren’t going away as they got the Bronco lead to one, 39-38, to start the fourth quarter and retook the lead with 4:30 left in the game on another Simon 3-pointer, 4544. The Barons had chances to add to their lead but they couldn’t hit free throws. The Barons got the line nine times and missed each and every one, which allowed the Broncos to stay right in the thick of it. Fulton hit one of two free throws with 2:54 left to tie the game at 45 before Piatt, after another Amelia missed free throw, hit a tough fall away jumper in the lane to give the Broncos a 47-45 lead with 2:06 left. “I think the rest of them fed off him,” Foster said of Piatt on Wednesday. “He was aggressive, he was confident. It was the best

game I’ve probably seen him play.” Another missed front end of a one and one gave the Broncos a chance to kill some time, which they did, before Piatt missed an open jumper at the elbow. That’s when Simon, who scored a team-best 14 points, hit his fourth ‘three’ of the night from the top of the key with 1:13 left to give the Barons a 48-47 lead. The Broncos lost the ball on their ensuing possession – Foster felt Allen was fouled underneath as he lost the ball – but Amelia, again, missed the front end of a one and one and Allen hustled for the defensive board. Coming out of timeout with just 11 seconds left, the Broncos got the ball to their freshman guard/forward Fulton on the block. He went up for a jumper and a foul was called as he let go of the ball. But instead of the shooting foul the Broncos coaches, players and fans felt it was, it was called a foul on the floor before the shot, which gave the Broncos the ball under their basket with 8.8 seconds left. “The ball’s in the air and he calls a foul,” Foster said of the play. Amelia, who had just four team fouls with eight seconds left, fouled the Bronco who received the inbounds pass the next two times to kill clock, which it did. Finally, after Amelia had reached six fouls, they let the Broncos run their play. Piatt got the ball and stepped into a 3-pointer at the top of the key. His shot bounced off the rim as the buzzer sounded. The scoreboard may have said the Broncos lost but Foster certainly had other feelings. “They won that basketball game,” Foster said of his team. “Regardless of the score, they won that game.” Western Brown (7-9, 24 SBC-A) 47 Kuttler 1 2 5, Fulton 5 4 15, Piatt 7 2 19, Wood 0 0 0, Haggerty 1 0 2, Allen 1 2 4, Bennett 1 0 2, Wallace 0 0 0.

high school basketball roundup Girls Basketball Georgetown rolls to pair of conference wins The Lady G-Men kept up their strong play of late with two Southern Buckeye Conference-National Division wins, beginning with a 57-21 win over winless Blanchester last Thursday night. Though the Lady Wildcats have struggled, the Lady G-Men wasted little time taking control. They jumped ahead 15-2 by the end of the first quarter, thanks in part to MacKenzi Carrington’s eight first quarter points, and cruised to victory from there. “We came out right from the tipoff and played extremely hard,” Georgetown coach Bernie Cropper said. Megan Hatfield led the way with 13 points while Carrington added 10 points. Then, on Saturday, the Lady G-Men (16-2, 7-0 SBC-N) hosted Batavia and, thanks to another quick start, rolled to a 7334 win. Hatfield and Carrington each scored seven points in the opening quarter as the Lady G-Men jumped out to a 23-10 lead and, again, rolled to a victory. “We’re starting to play our best basketball,” Cropper said. Hatfield led the way again with 16 points while Carrington (11 points), Madison Pack (11 points and nine rebounds) and Morgan Gast (10 points) also scored in double figures. Ripley earns two SHAC wins The Lady Jays kept up their strong play in the Southern Hills Athletic Conference with wins over Whiteoak and Manchester this week. On the road at Whiteoak last Thursday night, the Lady Jays rolled to a 72-26 victory. “Played pretty well,” Ripley coach Chris Coleman said. “We shot the ball fairly well, better than we had been.” Then, on Monday night, the Lady Jays (13-6, 9-2 SHAC) used a strong second half defensively to beat Manchester, 53-38. They held the Lady Greyhounds to just 11 second half points as they pulled away for the second hotly contested victory of the season over their SHAC rivals. “They’re very physical and play extremely hard,” Coleman said as to why Manchester has been a tough out for his team. Niya Royal led the way with 20 points. Fayetteville breezes to a pair of SHAC wins The Lady Rockets opened the week with an 81-17 win over West Union last Thursday night thanks

to a stupendous shooting performance. They shot 30-36 from inside the three point line (83 percent) while making a respective five of 11 3-pointers and hitting all six of the their free throws. “We shot the ball as well as any team I’ve coached,” Fayetteville coach Toby Sheets said. Makayla Rosselot led the way with 33 points while Claire Carson added 14 points on a perfect 6-6 shooting. Then, on Monday night, the Lady Rockets (18-1, 11-0 SHAC) rolled past Division II foe Whiteoak, 7843. Megan Eyre led the way in the win with 22 points and 12 rebounds while Alex Carson added 18 points and five assists. Western Brown grinds out two SBC-A wins Rebounding helped the Lady Broncos keep their Southern Buckeye Conference-American Division record unblemished last Saturday as they beat visiting Goshen, 59-28. “We rebounded very well as the game went on,” Western Brown coach Kyle Fender said. “Our energy and defensive intensity got better as the game went on.” Kylie Garrett led the way with 25 points and 14 rebounds while Makaela Fischer added 14 points and 13 rebounds. Then, on Monday night, the Lady Broncos traveled to Amelia and withstood a quick Lady Barons start for a 51-36 win. Amelia jumped out a 106 lead by the end of the first quarter as the Lady Broncos shot just 3-17 but Western Brown (15-3, 7-0 SBC-A) rallied to take a 20-18 lead by halftime before taking control in the second half. “Our offense caught up with our defense in the second half as we focused on getting out in transition and working to get high percentage looks at the basket,” Fender said. Garrett led the way with 23 points and 10 rebounds while Delayne Seigla added 11 points and seven steals. Boys Basketball Big third quarters keep Eastern undefeated in the SHAC The Warriors picked up two more conference wins this week to keep their conference record perfect, starting with a 67-38 win over county and conference rival Ripley last Friday night. The win was secured when the Warriors outscored the Blue Jays 240 in the third quarter. “It’s called defensive effort,” Eastern coach Rob Beucler said of keeping the Blue Jays scoreless in the

third quarter. Chase Lawson went over 1,000 career points in the win as he dropped in a team-best 18 points. Curtis Burns added 11 points for the Warriors (17-2, 10-0 SHAC). On Tuesday night the Warriors traveled to Lynchburg-Clay and found themselves in a battle with the Mustangs. Again, it was the third quarter that propelled Eastern to the win. They outscored Lynchburg 17-7 in the quarter to open a lead they would keep en route to a 62-51 win. “We were a little more patient on offense,” Beucler said of the quarter. “Our defense was a little more solid.” Lawson led the way with 30 points while Nathan Scott chipped in with 15 points, including 11 in the deciding third quarter. Fayetteville splits a pair of SHAC games The Rockets beat Manchester last Friday night 68-41 thanks to a strong overall performance. “We passed and shot the ball really well,” Rockets coach Darryl Iles said. “We played pretty well.” D.J. Iles, who is just 109 points from breaking the 1,000 point barrier with seven regular season games left to play, led the way with 21 points while Corey Lykins added 15 points. Then, on Tuesday night, the Rockets traveled to Whiteoak for big SHAC Division II showdown but came up short, 65-49. Thanks to foul trouble for starters D.J. Iles and Nick Durham, the Rockets (9-6, 6-4 SHAC) got behind by 13 at halftime before they cut the lead to four several times in the second half. But D.J. Iles fouled out with four minutes to go and the Wildcats hit their free throw down the stretch to secure the victory. “We didn’t play very well,” Darryl Iles said. “We just couldn’t settle in.” Western Brown struggles in second half in loss to Goshen The Broncos got off to a strong start on Tuesday night against visiting Goshen, they held the Warriors to just 15 first half points, but struggled in the second half as they endured another tough loss, 46-43. “We played well in the first half but we just couldn’t score in the second half,” Western Brown coach Greg Foster said. “We didn’t play the same defense in the second half that we did in the first half.” The loss was the Broncos (7-10, 2-5 SBC-American Division) seventh of the season by less than five points.

Nutrition-Packed Super Bowl snacks BY Amy L. Habig, MPH, RD, LD Extension Educator, Family and Consumer Sciences, OSU Extension Adams/Brown/Highland Counties Are you ready for some football? I’m not always upto-date on the latest football action, but I do know that the Super Bowl is coming up this weekend. This event provides an opportunity for friends and family to gather

and socialize. It also provides an opportunity for tasty snacks. At Super Bowl gatherings, many of us become “mindless eaters.” When watching the game, aim to be more mindful of what and how much you are eating. Try to avoid grabbing a big plate of food and taking it back to the couch to eat while watching the game. Instead, fill a small plate with a reasonable amount of nutritious food and eat it at the

table before the game starts so you can pay more attention to what and how much you are actually eating. To make it easier to fill your plate with nutritious food, put a variety of healthy snacks on the menu. Munch on these nutritionpacked game-day snacks: • Fruit kabobs or apple, pear, or banana slices with low-fat yogurt as a dip • Fruit and low-fat cheese plate with whole grain crackers • Homemade trail mix with nuts, dried fruits, and fiber-rich cereal • Carrots, red and green pepper strips, or broccoli dipped in Hummus or Greek yogurt mixed with a little ranch seasoning • Popcorn lightly sprinkled with Parmesan cheese • Pretzels with honey mustard sauce • Homemade baked chips with salsa or homemade bean dip. To make your own chips, cut wheat tortillas into wedges, spray with cooking spray and bake at 350◦F for about 15 minutes. • Baked potatoes topped with salsa and a little low-fat cheese • Mini veggie pizzas made on half of a whole wheat English muffin Keep food safety a priority when serving up gamewinning grub. Use these tips to help keep bacteria from spoiling your game: • Wash your hands! Give your hands a good scrub before handling food and utensils, and after handling raw meats. • Before pulling out your cooking supplies, clean kitchen surfaces with hot, soapy water. • Keep hot foods hot and cold foods cold. Use slow cookers or warming trays to keep warm foods at a temperature of 140 degrees Fahrenheit or warmer. Use ice packs or bowls of ice to keep cold dishes below 40 degrees Fahrenheit. • Watch the clock and keep track of how long your food has been at room temperature. Discard foods that have been at room temperature for more than two hours. Don’t just rely on the game and the creative commercials for entertainment – make your own! Do light stretches or opt to stand during commercial breaks. If

you have kids who do not watch the game, ask them to make up a short dance or select a series of stretches during the first half. Then, have them teach you the dance or stretches during half-time. So, socialize, eat healthfully, keep foods safe, get a little activity…and have a ball this Super Bowl Sunday!

Why in the world is there a little sticker on my bottle that says not to eat grapefruit or drink grapefruit juice? After looking into it I found it fascinating. So sit back and read the mysterious story of the grapefruit. It started with an experiment to determine whether alcohol would affect the drug felodipine, which is used to treat high blood pressure. Like all well designed experiments, the test subjects were not supposed to know if they were being given alcohol or the control liquid. So how do you keep people from tasting the alcohol in the drink they’ve been given? The experimenters raided their refrigerators and decided that grapefruit juice did the best job of masking the taste of the alcohol. In fact, if they used frozen concentrate and only mixed it with half the amount of water that they were supposed to it did even better. (No kidding! Who could taste anything after that?) The researchers found that after the experiment there was a significant drop in the test subjects’ blood pressure, so much that they would nearly pass-out when they stood up. This could show a significant effect of alcohol on the blood pressure drug felodipine, except for that both groups had the same results. The researchers took blood samples and tested how much of the drug was in the blood stream. Again, both groups had three times as much drug in their blood stream than normal. Obviously it wasn’t the alcohol that was causing the interaction, so they tried a different type of juice. The orange juice given next did not cause any change in the blood levels of the drug, therefore it had to be the grapefruit juice. Interestingly, grapefruit juice had no effect on blood levels when the drug was given intravenously (IV), only when it was taken by mouth. So why does this happen with grapefruit? To under-

stand we’ll have to do a little biology. When you take a drug it doesn’t stay in your body forever, sometimes it is eliminated unchanged by the kidneys and the drug shows up in the urine. Other drugs are broken down into simpler chemicals by the liver, the work is done by enzymes. Strangely enough these enzymes are not just in the liver, they can also be found in the lining of the intestine. Some drugs undergo what is known as first pass metabolism. That means that after the drug is absorbed from the intestinal tract — but before it makes it to the blood stream — it is already metabolized, or changed. This is where grapefruit is affecting the drugs. Grapefruit blocks the enzyme CYP3a4 in the lining of the intestinal tract, but not in the liver. Therefore, as these drugs are absorbed from the intestinal tract they are not broken down by the CYP3a4 enzyme and more of the drug makes it into the blood stream. Since grapefruit doesn’t affect the CYP3a4 that is in the liver, it doesn’t affect drugs that are given IV. The drugs are still able to be metabolized just like they always were. Grapefruit will only affect those drugs that are metabolized by the lining of the intestinal tract before they make it to the blood stream. The list of drugs that are affected by grapefruit is growing. If you’re not sure, just ask your pharmacist. Tom Callahan is a pharmacist, he lives in the Milford area. Any question or comments can be sent to TomHealthMatters@gmail. com. You can find archives of previous Health Matters at TomHealthMatters.blogspo t.com.

We decided to take advantage of the “warmer” weather and hiked a new trail in Greene County that ended at the foot of an Indian mound. Poised on top of a large rock was a very creative snowman with native plants and weeds for accessories. Some of my neighbors have been very creative with their snowmen by building them upside down, in family groupings, or even ri ding on a sled! I should have taken time to build a scarecrow out of snow for my garden. I’m sure I will still have an opportunity in February or March. Are you looking for a fun indoor project? Get the kids involved and create decorative garden pavers that can be embellished and personalized in a number of different ways. These pavers will be charming additions to your garden or walk-way in the spring. Planni ng a small meditation grotto? These garden stones can be a wonderful focal point and allow you the chance to reflect on your family and loved ones while enjoying a moment of peace and tranquility. These garden stone kits are available at a number of craft and garden stores throughout the area. Even your cereal box can provide some ecofriendly indoor projects

Provided/ The Brown CounTy Press

for your family. Everything from using the empty box to create a recycling rack to collect junk mail, magazines and newspapers to an ecofriendly folder! You can visit GoBigForThePlanet.com for instructions and more eco-friendly ideas. We all know that recycling helps protect the environment for future generations. So put your creative thinking caps on and take on the challenge of an empty cereal box! How are your indoor plants looking? Is it time to divide crowded pots? If you are itching to dig in the dirt, this is a great opportunity to do just that. Are the seed catalog orders completed? Have you jotted down your priorities for the coming garden season? Is your garden journal current and full of

designs for new projects? Asking those questions makes my head spin! So many questions….so little time before we can start planting! The February 11 deadline to register for the training classes to become a Master Gardener Volunteer is quickly approaching. Classes will meet on Wednesdays, 10 a.m. until 3 p.m., starting February 20 and ending May 22. The Adams County OSUE office is handling the registration for these classes and can be reached at (937) 544-2339. There has been a change in the schedule for the gardening seminars held at the Fincastle campus of Southern State Community College. The schedule is as follows: February 17 – Water Gardens; March 21 – Native Plants/Id; April 18 – Vertical Gardens; and May 16 – Miniature Gardens. All seminars are free and open to the public and are held in the library from 6 until 7:30 p.m. The rain will wash away the snow and give you another opportunity to take a walk about and check for animal damage. You might also want to check to see if mulches and other winter protection have heaved or loosened, exposing plants to damage. Enjoy the warmer weather while it lasts, we all know that it can quickly change back to frigid temperatures!

Meadowwood closing its doors CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 “Nurses Aide Performance Review 12 hour Yearly Inservice” category reads; “Based on review of inservice records and staff interview, the facility continues to fail to ensure State Tested Nurses Aides have evidence of 12 hours of inservice training.” Crout was visibly upset as he discussed the situation, saying that those responsible for cutting funding are creating hardship for his residents. “Sixty people are going to fill up a whole bunch of nursing homes around here and somebody is going to get caught on the tail end and going god knows where...and they don’t have a problem with that.” Tessie Pollock, a Public Information Officer with the Ohio Department of Health, disagrees with that assessment. “Our focus is turning to insuring that the residents are able t o choose a new facility where they would like to relocate and to in-

sure that their needs are going to be met.”, Pollack said. Pollack also said the situation did not come about suddenly and that Crout had plenty of time to correct the problems. “Our surveyors were there on August 4th, August 24th and again on November 28th. We found that they were not following CMS guidelines. According to CMS rules, th e company had six months to fix those problems. We went back out and found out that the violations had not been addressed and that automatically triggers CMS to terminate their provider agreement, which means that CMS will no longer provide funding for Medicare and Medicaid.” Crout said one of the hardest parts of the process was having to tell his employees, some of whom tried to offer a solution to save their jobs. “I had some of my employees ask me if they

were to spend their own money to fix the two problems out there, would we be able to stay open? The answer was absolutely not.” Crout added that the burden was weighing heavily on him. “I feel responsible for the residents, the ones that are going to die and for eighty something employees. Culpable, no. Responsible, yes.” Crout also said that the same people who are effectively shutting him down helped create the problem in the first place. “The last time they gave us a raise on room rates was twelve years ago, but they keep coming up with more rules that increase our operating expenses.”, Crout said. Crout thoughts then turned back to his employees as he thought about the closure of the facility he has owned since 1984. “They’re crying a lot. And nobody is sorrier than me.”

Four charges dropped on Crane

CMyK

CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 Brown County Common Pleas Judge Scott Gusweiler ruled in favor of Ring on charges against Crane that involved permitting drug abuse. Little said that Gusweiler agreed with the argument that Christine Crane owned the home the couple lived in, and because of that fact, Robert Crane could not be charged with permitting drug abuse. The ruling resulted in three of the 11 counts against Crane being dismissed. On Jan. 30, Little moved to dismiss another count against Crane, this one a first degree felony charge of Engaging in a Pattern of Corrupt Activity. Little dropped the charge because a witness against Crane was given immunity from prosecution in exchange for testimony about Crane in Brown

County. However, to prove the Pattern of Corrup t Activity Charge, the witness would have had to testify about his involvement in criminal activity in Hamilton County. Since that testimony could be used against him, and Little could not grant immunity from prosecution in another county, the witness was reluctant to testify. Once Little dropped the charges, the witness testified against Crane. The most serious charges Crane faces now are one first degree fe lony count of Involuntary Manslaughter and two second degree felony counts of Corrupting Another with Drugs. The jury trial last April hit a snag during the testimony of Dr. Gregory Wanger, a Medical Examiner for the state of Kentucky. Wanger examined the

body of Christine Crane after she was taken to Meadowview Regional Medical Center in Maysville, where she was pronounced dead. Little was asking Wanger abou t his findings when Crane attorney Nick Ring objected. Crane’s cause of death is listed as a drug overdose, with Wanger making that determination based, in part, on a toxicology report on Christine Crane’s blood. Ring objected to the fact that the toxicology analysis was prepared by an outside company, ATI Laboratories of Indianapolis, Indiana. Ring said that because Wanger was basing his conclusion of cause of de ath on data prepared by ATI, he should have the opportunity to confront and examine those within ATI who actually did the analysis. The sixth amendment of the U.S. Constitution gives those on trial the right to

confront their accusers. Ring is maintaining that the toxicology report is being used as justification to bring charges, and therefore those who prepared it should be cross-examined. Common Pleas Judge Scott Gusweiler sustained Ring’s objection, laying out his reasoning to both the prosection and defense in open court, outside the presence of the jury. Little then asked for a continuance of the case to give her time to contact ATI and begin the process of bringing a representative to Georgetown to testify in the case. Christine Crane was found unresponsive by Aberdeen Life Squad rescue crews on March 17, 2011 after Robert Crane placed a 911 call. She was taken to Meadowview Regional Medical Center in Maysville, Ky., where she was pronounced dead by Mason County Coroner Robert Brothers.

He also received certificates of recognition from the Brown County Commissioners, State Representative Doug Green and Senator Joe Uecker. “Wow,” Lodwick began, “Two hundred people…recently fed…and ready to hear about 45 minutes on U.S. Grant.” His comment produced laughs from the audience. “I am asked to speak about once a month either here in the county or elsewhere.”, Lodwick said. “I want to thank the Chamber, the Senate, the House, the commissioners and everyone here for this great honor to be recognized by your peers. It’s the greatest honor anyone can receive. I started my life in Cleveland but consider myself a Brown Countian, I’ve been here since I was a third grader. I think I learned early on, my work ethic, from my parents. I don’t think I appreciated it when I was learning it.

erinarian in Brown County at the Georgetown Animal Hospital. Following Lodwick’s comments, recipient of the Drucker Award, the Brown County Rural Water Association (BCRWA) presented a special power point presentation on the creation and growth of the association through the years. Facts given during the power point included: • BCRWA began very

volved in the community and felt that involvement was very important. They were involved in Boy Scouts, 4-H and the school systems. He added that he had received an excellent education and has always enjoyed being a vet-

small in the early 1970’s and had very few customers; • The larger villages in the county had water systems, but not the outlying areas; • Two groups began working on developing a new county wide water system, one in the Feesburg area and the other in Sardinia. The groups joined forces, creating the BCRWA; • To qualify for a Farmers Home Administration loan, the BCRWA was organized;

• The association has 25 employees, all but one have been with the company for over 13 years; • BCRWA now has 8,800 taps, 13 wells and 13 storage tanks, and owns over 500 acres of ground; •The association treats its own water; • It has been at its current location, 3818 U.S. 52 in Ripley, since 1997; • In 2007 Lowell Allen was elected president of the board of the BCRWA • General Manger is Dan Sarbach since 2007; • The association maintains 900 miles of lines. Dave Gooch, with Park National Bank, and is the 2013 United Way chair for the eastern area, spoke briefly with those in attendance about United Way. Gooch said that last year United Way raised over $1.6 million and $600,000 of those funds came back to Brown County. He said that $83,000 of those funds were raised in Brown County. Tim McKeown, chairman of the board of the Brown

County Chamber of Commerce took the opportunity to introduce members of the chamber’s executive team during the event. For a second year, Kelly Cornette (with National Bank and Trust) will remain president, Brian Elliott (with radio station WAOL) remains vice president, Gerry Schumacher (First State Bank) remains treasurer and Erin Richmond (with Hospice of Hope) remains secretary. Following his introduction of the officers, they were sworn in to office by Brown County Probate and Juvenile Court Judge Margaret Clark. The Annual Chamber Spring Dinner will be held May 6.
