Mt. Orab Auto Mall breaks ground BY Wayne Gates The Brown County Press The new Mt. Orab Auto Mall project is officially underway. About 100 elected officials, business owners and spectators attended a groundbreaking on the site on August 27. Work will begin on the site in a couple of weeks and the project is scheduled to be completed in about a year. The auto mall will be located behind the Mt. Orab Kroger store on a triangular piece of property with frontage along State Route 32. The first two projects on the property will be a Ford dealership and a Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram dealership. The first phase of the project is estimated to cost approximately $12 million. Developers eventually envision five auto dealerships, a large hotel and a restaurant on the property, which would bring the developCONTINUED ON PAGE 9

Arrest could be close Reggie McKenzie in Stykes shooting running for Sheriff BY Wayne Gates The Brown County Press Two years after her death, an arrest may be close in the Brittany Stykes murder case. The 22 year old Stykes was shot and killed while driving on U.S. 68 south of Georgetown on August 28, 2013. Her daughter Aubree was also shot, but survived. Stykes was also seventeen weeks pregnant at the time of the shooting. Brown County Sheriff’s Office Chief Deputy Carl Smith said that things in the case are finally coming together. “We received information from Owen County and Carroll County, Kentucky, back in June. Withthis information we have developed new leads and have a person of interest. If everything holds

together we will present it to the grand jury soon.”

Smith said that once an indictment is issued by the grand jury, the arrest will be made. The case has received intense media attention in the past two years, but Smith said he can’t say anything else at this time. “I can’t let out any details on the investigation or the suspect or any of the people we have talked to. It’s possible that information like that could put their lives in danger,” he said. Smith added that the case has taken a toll on investigators as well over the past two years. “They have talked to countless individuals. It’s a weight that everybody that everybody would like to get off their shoulders and put this case to rest for the family.”

BY Wayne Gates The Brown County Press Reggie McKenzie is running for Brown County Sheriff. McKenzie will run as a Republican, setting up a three way race with Brown County Sheriff’s Office Chief Deputy Carl Smith and Winchester Police Chief David Benjamin. “People have come up to me for about twenty years now, telling me that I ought to run for Sheriff. This year that number increased significantly. After some reflection and positive feedback from friends and family, I decided to run,” McKenzie said. When asked what he would bring to the office, McKenzie replied, “Leadership. My 27 years in the Marine Corps, my time as a police officer, my training...they’ve all focused on leadership.

the Brown County Commissioners on August 26 in Mt. Orab. Among the topics discussed were what was being done to help recent flood victims and the tight budget the county is operating under. Following the meeting, Wenstrup spoke exclusively to the Brown County Press on a variety of topics, including the 2016 Presidential race. “On the Republican side, I think there is a strong field that’s out there and a lot of people who are willing and able to lead this nation.

They are stepping up and it’s going to be interesting to see who pulls ahead,” Wenstrup said. “On the other side, it looks like Mrs. Clinton is having some problems.

BY Martha B. Jacob The Brown County Press During the Brown County Chamber of Commerce meeting on Aug. 20, Maureen Kiley of Child Focus, Inc. told members that Child Focus will soon be moving to a new location in Mt. Orab. Kiley said her agency has purchased the vacated Cole Furniture Store on the north side of Mt. Orab on St. Rt. 68. “Our home office is in Clermont County,” she said, “we are very excited about this move, we certainly

needed more space.” The chief operating officer of Child Focus, Inc. Sandra Lock released a statement on the move to the Brown County Press. “In an effort to meet the growing needs of clients and agencies in the Brown, Adams and Highland County area, Child Focus, Inc. has purchased the Cole Furniture Store. The Mt. Orab area has been identified as a central location to provide much needed mental health services and support,” she said. “We were initially thinking the middle of November

we could open our new facility, but it will probably be sometime in December before the remodeling is complete.” Child Focus, Inc. was first established in 1997 to provide comprehensive services to meet the needs of children and their families in Clermont County. In 1992, Child Focus started a Foster Care program and in the year 2000, we expanded to a school-based mental health services to elementary, middle and high schools.

New book to feature American Veteran Zachary Adamson


In January of 2014, Steve and Rebecca Adamson tragically lost their 24 year old son Zachary, who took his own life. But through the efforts of many people, including a Pennsylvania author named Cindy Ross, Zachary Adamson’s memory will live on forever and help other American Veterans. Ross has written at least seven books on walking, hiking and cycling the endless trails of North America. She has crossed the more than 2,100 mile Appalachian Trail as a single woman penning and illustrating her first book, “A Woman’s Journey on the Appalachian Trail” which has become a hiking classic. She learned about Zachary Adamson during her Appalachian walk, when she happened to meet Zach’s gun captain Travis Johnston. Zachary had served one tour in Iraq and three deployments to Afghanistan serving as a United States Airborne Ranger in the Army. He was involved in U.S. Iraqi Freedom and in the Operation Enduring Freedom War. But during those deployment years between 2008 to 2011, Zachary saw things and felt things that were out of his control and after leaving the army he searched for ways to get past the scars of losing so many of his close friends. So after months of planning when he got out of the service, Zachary decided to walk the Appalachian Trail, a 2,185 mile hike through 14 states which would take him about six months. Zachary made that rigorous hike for a multitude of reasons, but the main reason was to clear his head and get in touch with nature and the things in life that were the most important to him. Johnston had a difficult time after learning of Zachary’s death and wanted desperately to do something to memorialize his friend. Most recently Johnston organized a Memorial Climb up Zach’s favorite mountain in Vir-

ginia, McAffee’s Knob. A special stone has been erected at the spot where the memorial walk began. “When I met Travis, he told me all about his friend Zachary Adamson,” Ross said. “I was walking the same trail that Zach had walked and we came to the beautiful headstone in honor of Zachary, we sat down and I listened to stories about the horror’s that the two men had shared.” Ross said that Travis told her about one of the worst nightmares of he and Zach’s life, and about the images that still cause nightmares, making his mind reel with questions, like ‘should I have done it differently,’ struggling with mistakes made, and on and on with the mental torture. “After sharing this experience, I decided I wanted to start a special non-profit facility called River House PA which I did, over a year ago. Travis Johnston has been a big part of helping me. This organization facilitates healing through nature, in the form of outdoor adventures, recreational opportunities and workshops for veterans and their families who have been affected by trauma,”, she said. Ross is working on yet another book, which will have an entire chapter dedicated to Zachary Adamson. The book will be called “War Path, Walking Towards Peace on Amer-

ica’s Long Distance Trails.” “Zak will be one chapter in this new book,” Ross said. “That’s the reason I contacted the Adamson family. I am here in their home in Mt. Orab, so that I can truly understand Zachary, to feel who he was.” Ross showed off Zachary’s dog tag which she was wearing around her neck. She slept in his bed, read his letters he sent home to his parents, met his siblings and listened to the wonderful stories about his childhood from his parents. “Every chapter of my new book will be about a different Veteran’s quest for peace,” Ross said with a smile, “I have at least nine veterans for my book already.” She continued, “I believe that the first person to walk the entire Appalachian Trail in it’s entirety was Earl Schaffer back in 1946, and his reason for doing it was to walk off World War II. He was a friend of mine and he helped me write my first book on the Appalachian Trail.” She said walking and hiking can be the best medicine to help Veterans re-connect to their lives and she hopes River House PA will be an instrument to help American Veterans everywhere.

Fay-Perry discusses memorial

This memorial to Charles h. Crawford is located near the flag pole behind Fayetteville-Perry schools. Crawford, a 1959 Fayetteville high school graduate, died in 1967, the only Fayetteville solder to die in Vietnam.

BY Martha B. Jacob The Brown County Press

Fayetteville Council member and Commander of the Fayetteville VFW, Joe Huber, was invited to speak to members of the Fayetteville-Perry Board of Education August 29, in regards to placing a military plaque honoring veterans on school grounds. “I understand what the school would like to have, and I will help with getting this memorial plaque placed here as much as I can,” Huber told the board. “I do have a brochure to share with you all, from Grow, Inc., in Georgetown, to give you some idea of what is available. Adults with disabilities make these beautiful plaques at Grow, Inc. and they could also do the engraving.” Huber said Grow Inc., could possibly have something in stock. Huber said the VFW also has a catalog of possible plaques, and that he and board member Brian Kleemeyer had figured the cost could be around $4,500.

Huber also reminded the board that there was currently a monument that had been put up on school property honoring Charles W. Crawford, the only Fayetteville High School graduate to have been killed in Vietnam in May of 1967. The memorial is located beneath the flag pole at the ball field. He said he would prefer having any new memorial’s placed out in front of the school so that people could stop and read it. “Most people don’t even know that memorial to Crawford, who was a personal friend of mine,is even there,” Huber said. “It’s not for me to say, but I would like to see any military memorial placed out front.” Board member Kathleen Johnson agreed that she would like to have it out front for everyone to see. On the plaque would be the names of any Fayetteville-Perry School that served in any branch of the armed forces. Board president Craig Smucker said that the board had been discussing the me-

morial plaque since January this year, but with growing expenses in the district and recent cuts made to the school budget, finding funds for the plaque could prove to be very difficult, but the board would consider everything presented by Huber. In other business at the meeting the board discussed the cost of coal it would be paying this year and commented on how cheap it was last year and the board approved a contract with Bramhi Inc., of Bidwell, Ohio at an approximate cost of $125 per ton, delivered. Also approved by the board were financial reports from the Band Boosters and the PTO. Smucker commented that the reports were outstanding, well written, thorough and he commended the groups for their hard work. Following an executive session the board approved: • Brittany Gethmann as middle school cheerleading advisor; • Jennifer Shaw as volun-

teer assistant middle school cheerleading; • Nathan Guenther as volunteer assistant varsity boys soccer; •Martha Boggs as FCCLA teacher for up to 12 weeks of FMLA Family Medical Leave Act; • Approve home instruction of up to five hours per week for a student requiring medical treatment from Children’s Hospital in Cincinnati for the 2015-16 school year; • Approve Brenda Dixon as the long-term substitute for Martha Boggs FCCLA instructor; • Approve the purchase of 10 laptop computers from Compugen to be used by the FFA students; • Approve the FFA class trip to Louisville, Ky. to attend the national convention from Oct. 28 to Oct. 31; An issue on the agenda to approve payment of $443.50 to be paid to the Ohio Coalition for Equity and Adequacy of School Funding was tabled by the board.

Chamber of Commerce meets BY Martha B. Jacob The Brown County Press

The August 20 Brown County Chamber of Commerce was sponsored by First State Bank, and held at the Georgetown Methodist Church. Guest speaker for the event was Lauren Bowen with State Treasurer Josh Mandel’s office. Bowen spoke briefly about her time working with Mandel and how important the office of state treasurer really is. “Normally we at the treasurer’s office, are designated as an entity to collect, protect and invest taxpayers dollars,” Bowen began, “We take a lot of pride making sure that we are accounting for taxpayer dollars and keeping it safe.” Members in attendance of the meeting heard from several people about ongoing or upcoming events. Brown County Commis-

sioner Darryl Gray talked briefly about Rumpke’s plans to build a plant to capture the methane gas in order to generate electricity. “Also,” Gray said, “Groundbreaking for the new auto mall in Mt. Orab will be the 27th of August, and HealthSource of Ohio is going to do a $2.6 million project in Georgetown. They are buying the land and will build a building.” Peggy Chalker, Mt. Orab Campus Director at Southern State Community College spoke briefly about a partnership with Wilmington College regarding workforce development. “Some of the reasons Wilmington College representatives are here is for everyone to get to know them,” Chalker said. “Some of our efforts, workforce development wise, where there are so many different needs in certifications and non-credit and

credit areas, whether it’s hydraulic lifts, or different business industries, we want to be able to provide these certifications.” Chalker said that Wilmington College is one of Southern State Community College’s partners that will be bringing bachelor’s degrees to the campus, primarily in the business areas of Strategics Organizational Leadership. She said the new program would focus on entrepreneur, real estate, business in general and accounting degrees. Chamber president Brian Elliott talked about the huge turnout for this year’s SummerFest event held on Aug. 7 and 8 at the Mt. Orab Park. He said he is already excited about next years SummerFest because Bruce Lunsford, mayor of Mt. Orab has expressed his interest in making it bigger and better which has been scheduled for Aug. 6 and 7, 2016.

briefly about the district’s new web site which is up and running and added that it will be helpful to all the district. “I think everyone knew about our big day of lightening we had here at the school,” Burrows said, “Our signs out here have been on their last leg for some time now, for several months, and on July 18, we had that nasty rain and wind and obviously flooding. The lightening managed to fry both our signs and put them to their final resting place.” Burrows said the school received more than 100 lightening strikes that day at the high school and also took out 14 LED parking lot lights, both scrolling signs were charred, a rooftop air-conditioning unit and all the phone systems were down. The school is negotiating with the insurance company which should cover most of the damage. Board treasurer Eric Toole

reported that the district received a higher than expected second half 2015 tax settlement, which was up by $60,000 due to more than usual delinquencies being collected by the county. The board later approved a mum sale fundraiser for the FFA program and also approved several changes to board policies. Also approved by the board was: • a new special education supervisor/504 coordinator job description; • the schools transportation handbook; • the athletic handbook which included two major

School year underway at G-town BY Martha B. Jacob The Brown County Press

The Georgetown Board of Education held its regular meeting, Aug. 19. Superintendent Chris Burrows told the board that other than a few bussing problems, the first day of school went very well. “The first day of school can be a real challenge for some kids getting on the right bus at the right time,” Burrows said. “But we got it all worked out and fortunately our bus drivers are well trained on how to handle these situations.” Burrows told the board that his goal this year is to eat lunch every day with someone, be it staff, parent or students, and not eat his lunch in his office. He said that Becky Cropper held a kick-off day for the staff who wore shirts that said ‘We are Family.’ The superintendent talked

Discussion of marriage continues Letters to the Editor

Dear Editor, Here is my response to Thomas W. Smith that he requested it the August 16th Brown County Press. The point of my letter the week before was to reaffirm what Doug Carter had written about marriage. I thought Doug did a great job of laying out the model for Biblical marriage. I used Abraham, Sarah and Hagar to show that just because people do something in the Bible does not mean that it is ok. There is only one Biblical model of marriage, and that is between one man and one woman. God said in Genesis 2:24 "For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh." Jesus reaffirmed that in Matthew 19:4-6 "Haven't you read", he replied," that at the beginning the Creator made them male and female, and said, 'For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate." I think the main point of marriage is to produce children. Genesis 1:28 "Be fruitful and increase in number, fill the earth and subdue it." Homosexuality is selfish, no children can be produced from that relationship, sexual gratification would seem to be the main purpose for homosexuality. Now true, not every heterosexual couple can or do have children but at least it is possible. Now, as for marriage being a contract, that is true, but a Christian marriage is a covenant, and a covenant is more than a contract. A contract can be between a couple or multiple people or even companies, a covenant involves God as well. Meredith G. Kline writes in Kingdom Prologue explaining a covenant. He says the usual Old Testament word for covenant is berith.

He says, "Repeatedly we read of a berith being "made". The berith-making is accomplished through a solemn process of ratification. Characteristically this transaction centers in the swearing of an oath, with it sanctioning curse. Clearly a berith is a legal kind of arrangement, a formal disposition of a binding nature. At the heart of a betith is an act of commitment and the customary oath-form of this commitment reveals the reli-

gious nature of the transaction. The betith arrangement is no mere secular contract but rather belongs to the sacred sphere of divine witness and enforcement. The kind of legal disposition called berith consists then in divinely sanctioned commitment. In the case of divine-human covenants the divine sanctioning is entailed in God's participation either as the one who himself makes the commitment or as the divine witness of the human

commitment made in his name and presence." So God is a witness to Christian marriage, God is there to bless the couple as they come together. God can not bless a same-sex marriage because there is no precedent for it in Scripture. On the contrary, Scripture forbids it. Marriage is more than a contract, it is a covenant. Kevin P. Jodrey Activist for Jesus

IRS warns taxpayers to guard against new tricks by scam artists

A reader recently submitted this IRS warning to The Brown County Press and asked us to share it. Following the emergence of new variations of widespread tax scams, the Internal Revenue Service today issued another warning to taxpayers to remain on high alert and protect themselves against the ever-evolving array of deceitful tactics scammers use to trick people. These schemes – which can occur over the phone, in e-mails or through letters with authentic looking letterhead – try to trick taxpayers into providing personal financial information or scare people into making a false tax payment that ends up with the criminal. The Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) has received reports of roughly 600,000 contacts since October 2013. TIGTA is also aware of more than 4,000 victims who have collectively reported over $20 million in financial losses as a result of tax scams. “We continue to see these aggressive tax scams across the country,” IRS Commissioner John Koskinen said. “Scam artists specialize in being deceptive and fooling people. The IRS urges taxpayers to be extra cautious and think twice before answering suspicious phone calls, emails or letters.” Scammers posing as IRS agents first targeted those they

viewed as most vulnerable, such as older Americans, newly arrived immigrants and those whose first language is not English. These criminals have expanded their net and are now targeting virtually anyone. In a new variation, scammers alter what appears on your telephone caller ID to make it seem like they are with the IRS or another agency such as the Department of Motor Vehicles. They use fake names, titles and badge numbers. They use online resources to get your name, address and other details about your life to make the call sound official. They even go as far as copying official IRS letterhead for use in email or regular mail. Brazen scammers will even provide their victims with directions to the nearest bank or business where the victim can obtain a means of payment such as a debit card. And in another new variation of these scams, con artists may then provide an actual IRS address where the victim can mail a receipt for the payment – all in an attempt to make the scheme look official. The most common theme with these tricks seems to be fear. Scammers try to scare people into reacting immediately without taking a moment to think through what is actually happening. These scam artists often angrily threaten police arrest, deportation, license revocation or other similarly unpleasant things. They may also leave “urgent” callback requests, sometimes through “robocalls,” via phone or email. The emails will often contain a fake IRS document with a telephone number or email address for your reply. It is important to remember the official IRS website is Taxpayers are urged not to be confused or misled by sites claiming to be the IRS but ending in .com, .net, .org or other designations instead of .gov. Taxpayers should never provide personal information, financial or otherwise, to suspicious websites or strangers calling out of the blue. Below are five things scammers often do that the real IRS would never do: The IRS will never: • Angrily demand immediate payment over the phone, nor will the agency call about taxes owed without first having mailed you a bill. • Threaten to bring in local police or other law-enforcement groups to have you arrested for

not paying. • Demand that you pay taxes without giving you the opportunity to question or appeal the amount they say you owe. • Require you to use a specific payment method for your taxes, such as a prepaid debit card. • Ask for credit or debit card numbers over the phone. Here’s what you should do if you think you’re the target of an IRS impersonation scam: If you actually do owe taxes, call the IRS at 1-800-829-1040. IRS workers can help you with a payment issue. If you know you don’t owe taxes or do not immediately believe that you do, you can report the incident to the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) at 1-800-366-4484. If you’ve been targeted by any scam, be sure to contact the Federal Trade Commission and use their FTC Compliant Assistant at Please add “IRS Telephone Scam” to the comments of your complaint.

Sharing recipes with friends and family I love the use of Facebook to keep in touch with family and friends and for the recipes. Just this week it conjured up some interesting remembrances when I saw saltine crackers with peach jam on it. It was beautifully displayed on a blue and white plate and looked delicious. The photography was delightful. I suppose it is the sweet and salty that tantalizes the taste buds. We had some weird food combinations in our family. Perhaps you, like my father, as a snack before bedtime or when his stomach was a little upset, he poured himself a glass of milk. But did you also crumble crackers in your glass of milk? I will never forget the day I followed him to the kitchen and watched him create in a pink plastic Tupperware tumbler this concoction. He drank it right on down and I could see he enjoyed it very much. Though I have not, nor never did carry on this tradition I thought about it today. I wondered did he learn this from his parents? Or was it because of the depression with money and food being scarce. Or did he have it in the convalescent home he stayed as a youngster for nine months recovering from rheumatic fever. Perhaps this was their bedtime snack. Perhaps all the little ten-year-old boys stood together and crumbled their crackers in their milk and then had a contest to see who could finish it first. I wished I had another chance to ask him. My mother on the other hand talked about a couple particular sandwiches of her youth. She tells with delight of a mustard and onion sandwich. Yes, you heard me correctly. No meat or cheese. I never tried that one without bologna. However, the one she also loved was a sandwich of mayonnaise and tomato. Now that one I did try and the combination makes me think of a virgin BLT sandwich. I actually liked it very much, but I like it better with bacon and lettuce! Something about the mayonnaise and the tomato juice tastes good. And, if your hungry and there isn’t meat to go on it, as those in the depression era experienced for lack of funds, then it would be tastier even more so to curb your appetite. Or how about the day she exclaimed to her kids, “I think I’ll make some potato candy today, ” which really stunned me and made even this

SHERRY MITCHELL TAKE JOY, A FARMHOUSE JOURNAL youngster shake her head. Seriously, who makes potato anything besides mashed, my favorite. Potato in a candy just didn’t seem right. But sure enough, in the kitchen we went and she boiled a potato then cooled it. Next she whipped it up with confectioners sugar creating dough. Rolling the dough out she then spread it with peanut butter. Then she rolled it back up and sliced it into individual pieces. Sounds yucky? Like it did to me when I first heard it, but it is really good. I like to refer to it as an “old fashioned” candy. Though I turned my nose up at the thought of it, it is a delicious treat. I also learned the recipe is of Irish descent. They raise potatoes over there. Makes sense to me now. So, why should anyone be surprised when saltine crackers with peach jam shows up on Facebook as a hors d’oeuvre? Sure isn’t me. I’ve learned that weird can often times be delightful. Give it a try. Perhaps you already have at one time or another. Enjoy our family recipe below. Old Fashioned Potato Candy Recipe Combine in a bowl: ¼ cup of a boiled mashed potato 2 TBSP milk 1 tsp. vanilla extract a pinch of salt Stir in 1 lbs. confectioners' sugar into potato mixture until a dough consistency is reached. (Save a little confectioners sugar for dusting surface for rolling) Refrigerate dough until chilled, about 1 hour. Sprinkle confectioners' sugar on a cutting board or waxed paper. Roll dough into a large rectangular shape on prepared surface. Spread enough peanut butter (about 1/3 cup) on top layer of dough to cover. Roll dough into a jelly roll shape; refrigerate roll for 1 hour. Slice dough into pinwheels to serve. I’ll be fixing it later this week and posting it to my blog. Come visit me at sherry-mitchell@

VIEWS OF THE CROSS-II Last week I talked about 2 of the 7 views of the Cross. The first one was the view of the Roman soldiers who first mocked Him and then crucified Him. The second was of the thieves hanging on each side of Him. One had faith and the other did not. Now let’s take a look at the third view. It is of the passers by that day. Matthew 27:39- says: “And they that passed by reviled him, wagging their heads, And saying, Thou that destroyest the temple, and buildest it in three days, save thyself. If thou be the Son of God, come down from the cross.” They knew who Jesus was. They knew that He had prophesied: “...Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.” So as they walked by they were wagging their heads in disgust and yelling up at Him. Mocking, laughing: You think you’re the Son of God? Come on down from that cross if you are so great; if you are who you say you are! Now you know, if you are wagging your head at someone, it is just a way of showing your disbelief and disgust. Can you just imagine the conversations going on among them? In reality, those conversations have not stopped. They are still going on today: “That preacher don’t know what he is talking about.” “That church is full of hypocrites!” “That bible they are always talking about is just a book written by men and they think it is the Word of God!” They would like to get rid of all of us, so that we would leave them alone. They would not have to feel guilty about living in sin. But, do you know what? Jesus loved that crowd, those soldiers, those thieves, those passers by and He loves the disbelievers today. We know that because He said: “Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do.” The enemies of the cross; the enemies of the preacher; the enemies of the Word of God, they don’t know what they are doing. We need to be compassionate towards the lost. Now, the next view of Jesus, the fourth view, we find in verses 41-43: “Likewise also the chief priests mocking him, with the scribes and elders, said, He saved others; himself he cannot save. If he be the King of Israel, let him now come down from the cross, and we will believe him. He trusted in


BIBLE BAPTIST CHURCH MT. ORAB God; let him deliver him now, if he will have him: for he said, I am the Son of God.” The religious crowd was going right along with the rest of them. Of all the mocking, theirs was the most vile. Come down, they said, then we will believe you. Jesus had preached for 3 1/2 years, had performed many miracles, He raised the dead, and they wouldn’t believe Him. Even if He had come down from the cross they would not have believed Him! There are people all over the world that are religious as can be and are as lost as a goose. They are religious as long as it fits their own needs. Did you get what they said? “He trusted in God; let him deliver him now, if he will have him...” Vile as can be! The Father was watching this whole thing and He saw His only begotten Son nailed to the cross, hanging there naked in shame, an object of ridicule. The Father in compassion just shuts the lights off. The sins of the world were resting on His beloved Son. The Bible says Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying: “My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?” Jesus could have come down from that cross, but, if He had, we all would have been forever lost. He bore that cross, the ridicule, the beatings, the shame, the pain, for no other reason but you and me. The sins of the world was placed on this man Jesus! He was the sacrifice for our sins, He paid the price, so that we might be reconciled back to the Father. What greater love could there be? But yet, people still ridicule Him, mock Him, and despise Him. Are you one of them? Do you wag your head in disbelief? Next week I will give you the last 3 views of the Cross to consider.

The May’s Lick Baptist Church in May’s Lick, KY., held their Vacation Bible School the last week in June. The Pregnancy Resource Center, A Place of Hope was chosen to be their mission for the week. The children attending had an exciting week learning about God, and also a very busy week working to help the babies who come through the PRC. Every night they had a mission moment and learned a little bit about how the PRC-A Place of Hope helps babies and their families. One night they made blankets for the babies (17 total). They also had a contest to

Ripley BOE meets


The regular meeting of the RULH Board of Education was held at 7 PM on Wednesday, August 19, 2015 at the Ripley Union Lewis Huntington Elementary School with the following members in attendance: Mr. Jeff Cluxton, Mr. Barry Sims, Mr. Jeff White and Mr. Jeff Wilson. Also present were Dr. Linda Naylor, Superintendent, and Mr. Jeff Rowley, Treasurer, various employees, and members of the public. After saying the Pledge of Allegiance, Dr. Naylor gave her monthly report. She noted that the first day of school had gone well. Over the past month in preparation for the beginning of school, the District Leadership Team met to review goals and plan activities for the 15-16 school year. The Administrative Team had met several times during August to finalize plans for facilities, scheduling, and staffing. New Teachers’ Orientation was held Thursday, August 13. The previous board meeting’s minutes and the current financial report of all financial systems of the school district as presented by Mr. Jeff Rowley, district treasurer, were approved. Mr. Rowley also gave a short presentation on where the District is in regards to improvements made possible through the funds generated by the Permanent Improvement levy. $86,225 will be paid out for one of the new school buses on delivery, which is expected in the next few weeks. $31,300 has been spent/encumbered on improvements at the High School, including updates to

classroom chalkboards, the HVAC system, removal of old carpet and installation of new flooring, and the purchase of a scissors lift. Finally, the board approved the purchase of Chromebooks so that all students in grades 3-12 would have access to a Chromebook and students in grades K-2 would have a cart of 25 for each grade. This is a tremendous move forward for student learning in RULH Schools. Mr. Rowley’s presentation also covered the history of the project between the village of Ripley and RULH Schools in terms of constructing a shelter house/concession stand/restroom facility on the elementary property in exchange for the donation of land from the previous park in order to build the new school. A special fund was established from the close out of the state project in 2013 to build the shelter house. This project is not being funded by the Permanent Improvement levy passed in 2014. The Superintendent’s report and recommendations were as follows. Under Facilities and Transportation, the board authorized the purchase of two Skyjack Scissors Lifts. One will be located at the Middle School, and one at the High School. These lifts are being paid for in part by the Ohio Bureau of Workers Compensation Safety Intervention Grant. In addition, the board approved the installation of a softball field at the Middle School paid for by the maintenance fund. This field will be available for physical education classes, recess, as well as the Varsity softball team. The board approved updates to the High School sound sys-

tem in the gym. In Education, Curriculum, and Instruction, a contract was approved with FRS Connections in Hillsboro for special education services. Also, as mentioned above, the board approved the purchase of additional Chromebooks. Several actions were taken in Personnel. The board approved supplemental contracts for the following: Lonnie Patrick, Varsity Softball, Nick Mock, 8th grade Girls’ Basketball, Jerry Kelley, JH Boys’ Track, and Kathy Kelley as JH Girls’ Track. Kendra Eichenlaub and Chris Moore were awarded a one-year, limited contract as an Intervention Specialist at the Middle School, and Jordan Maiberger was awarded a one-year limited contract as Business teacher at the High school. Holly Hayden was awarded a one-year contract as 6th grade ELA teacher. Colette Smith and Patricia Streetman were hired as full-time bus drivers. Cashiers were approved with Sue Miller, High School, Deidre Polley, Middle School, Susan Germann, Elementary School, and Elementary lunch monitor Leslie Jones. Lori Highlander was approved as a volunteer assistant for girls’ soccer. Under Administrative/Advisory, the board approved the first reading of policy 9211 for District Support Organizations after making several revisions to the policy. The meeting adjourned to Executive Session at 9:02 to discuss discipline of an employee, and resumed at 9:49, with adjournment following immediately at 9:50 PM.

Creature Feature Cat scratch fever can infect you or your cat! Ted Nugent made cat scratch fever (actually called cat scratch disease) nearly a household name with his song in the late seventies, but most people still know little about this infection other than it involves a fever spread by cat scratches. In fact, it involves infection by a bacterium called Bartonella henselae, which is spread by fleas. Classically, cats transmit the organism when they are parasitized by fleas, scratch themselves, and get infected flea dirt (digested host’s blood excreted by fleas) in their claws, and scratch a person or another cat with their dirty claws. The Human Disease I n f e c t i o n with Bartonella henselae in the immunocompetent (heal thy) person leads to cat scratch disease. The inoculation site (a scratch from a claw containing bits of flea dirt) develops a small red bump called a papule. About 2 to 3 weeks following contact with the infected cat, the lymph node in the area of the contact will swell and become painful and a fever develops. These signs generally resolve on their own and the condition is minor. If the patient does not have a competent immune system (HIV positive, pregnant), one of several much more serious syndromes can result. The infection goes deeper into the body causing spleen enlargement, and potentially encephalitis, heart valve infection, and other conditions. Prevention of Human Infection: Guidelines from the Centers For Disease Control Prevention of Exposure HIV-infected persons, particularly those who are severely immunosuppressed, are at unusually high risk for developing relatively severe disease due to infection with Bartonella, which can be transmitted from cats. These persons should consider the potential risks of cat ownership. Persons who acquire a cat should adopt or purchase an animal aged greater than 1 year that is in good health. Although declawing is not generally advised, HIVinfected persons should avoid rough play with cats and situations in which scratches are likely. Any cat-associated wound should be washed promptly. Cats should not be allowed to lick open wounds or cuts


of HIV-infected persons. How likely is it for a Cat to be Infected? Since fleas carry the bacteria, cats with insufficient flea control are at highest risk. This means cats living in climates that are warm and humid (conditions fleas thrive best in) are most likely to be infected. If conditions are right, up to 40% of cats in an area may be infected. If a person is diagnosed with cat scratch disease, there is a 90% chance that the cats they own will be found infected as well. This sounds somewhat concerning for the catowners in a flea area but it is important to realize that an infected cat cannot transmit the infection without a claw full of flea dirt. If the fleas are removed from the infected cat, there will be no flea dirt in the coat and no risk of disease transmission. Several illnesses seem to have been associated with Bartonella infection (fever, deep eye inflammation, lymph node enlargement, muscle pain, reproductive failure, and bacterial heart valve deposits called endocarditis.)

Bartonella henselae infect ion may be one of main causes of the progressive oral disease of cats called plasma cell stomatitis. It seems that cats infected with both Bartonella henselae an d the feline immunodeficiency virus have an increased incidence of this condition compared to what would be expected from either infection alone. Bartonella infection may be at the root of numerous chronic inflammatory conditions of cats. With such regionally high numbers of infected cats (up to 40%), it is difficult to prove one way or the other whether there is a real association or just coincidence. Is my Cat Infected? Any cat who is exposed to fleas or who has either respiratory or oral problems could be infected. A veterinarian can easily test for it and treatment is available to infected pets. If you suspect that your pet has cat scratch disease, please call us at 513-797-PETS to schedule a test. Proper care for cats should always include flea prevention to reduce the risk of this and other diseases. Dr. Dan Meakin is the owner of All Creatures Animal Hospital, 1894 Ohio Pike in Amelia. Call (513) 797-PETS (7387).

around the State as part of the OSDAR’s partnership with the 50th Commemoration of the Vietnam War. Each chapter was encouraged to invite a veteran as their guest. Ripley DAR honored two veterans – Chuck Shinkle, husband of DAR member Rose Shinkle, and Russell “Buck” Blair, sister of DAR member Vickie Carrington. The luncheon was made even more special because NSDAR’s President General Lynn Forney Young was present. A “mail call” was observed and as each veteran’s name was called,

the veteran went forward, was greeted and thanked by Ms. Young for his/her service to our country and given a stack of letters of thanks which were written by Daughters from across Ohio. The veteran’s enjoyed the luncheon and the mail call and were honored to participate. There were 57 veterans honored – some were also DAR members! State Regent Sandy McCann said that OSDAR set a record of attendance – the ballroom was completely filled with over 400 Daughters and veterans in attendance.

CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 When fully complete, the project is expected to create about 500 new jobs. Project Owner Mark Williams, who also owns Beechmont Ford, said he wants to bring customers to Mt. Orab from within a 100 mile radius. “It’s exciting. We’ve worked to put this together for almost two years now, so it’s a big day for everyone,” said Williams told the Brown County Press. “I’m looking forward to transforming this field into a thriving business that supports the community and the people that live here.” Williams said one reason he chose Mt. Orab for the project was the business friendly environment. “Mt. Orab is growing and it’s a hub for the community. It’s a community that wants business and is aggressive in going out and making things happen for businesses like myself,” he said. Williams also had high praise for Mt. Orab Mayor Bruce Lunsford, saying that project would not have happened without his help. Williams added that the specifics of the hotel and restaurant on the property were still in the preliminary stages and that he would have more information when things firm up. Lunsford was also very pleased to be at the groundbreaking. “This is what you work for. You spend a lot of time and effort on economic development and when something like this happens, it’s a great day,” said Lunsford. “It’s another big piece of the puzzle in making Mt. Orab a destination point. It’s part of the bigger picture of creating tax base for the village, school system and the county.” Lunsford said that he was grateful for the work that “so many great people” put into the project, including the members of the Mt. Orab Village Council, the

Mt. Orab Port Authority, the Brown County Commissioners and Brown County Economic Development Director Kelly Cole. Lunsford and Williams also both mentioned Gerald Gabbard, the former owner of Mt. Orab Ford, as a vital part of making the project happen. “A few years ago, Ford wanted to buy Gerald Gabbard out and shut him down. He didn’t want to do that. He could have taken a big paycheck, but he kept the place going and here we are today,” Lunsford said. In remarks at the ceremony, Williams said that the road coming into the project would be named Gabbard Way in honor of the Gabbard family. The Brown County Commissioners were also pleased that the project will allow the county to pay off a $750,000 debt that was attached to the property. The county took out a loan on the land in 2009 to help keep the Brown County General Hospital afloat. “It’s a big accomplishment. It took two and a half years to get this done and it’s finally here. Hopefully it will spur even further development,” said Brown County Commission President Daryll Gray. Clermont County Chamber of Commerce President Matt Van Sant was also in attendance. He said the benefits of the project will not stop at the Brown County border. “This commitment by the Williams family is huge to the people that live and work out here and that work and live in Clermont County. This is a huge day for everyone on the east side,” Van Sant said. “Development is a very momentum driven type of activity. One big project like this one can be an amazing stimulator for more projects, so this is huge.” State Representative

Doug Green agreed with Van Sant. “For the folks at Mt. Orab Ford to take this plunge shows that they have confidence in the area and confidence catches on. I think this is a winning situation for further development,” Green said. State Senator Joe Uecker said that the development is evidence that the state legislature is on the right track. “This is an indication that the tax policies that we have worked on at the state level are working to attract and keep businesses in the state. We reduce the taxes for business, we help them expand and they will grow,” Uecker said. Second District Congressman Brad Wenstrup also spoke at the groundbreaking and talked about the strengths of the community.


his plans as Sheriff in the statement. “Beyond my experience, I believe I have the temperament and attributes necessary for the important position of Brown County Sheriff. Throughout my career as a Marine and police officer, I have always strived to be honest, forthright, fair and courteous with all those I come in contact with, from the public to the students and teachers that I currently work with. I assure you that I will bring each of these qualities to the job of Sheriff. I believe in leadership by example and will be firm but fair when serving as your Brown County Sheriff.”

He is a member of the New Harmony Masonic Lodge in Mt Orab, OH and serves as a Commissioner for the Brown County Veterans Service Commission. He also is a member of the Marine Corps League, VFW, American Legion, and Disabled American Veterans organizations.

The auto mall will look like this when fully complete. Plans call for a hotel to occupy the space at the top, with a restaurant in the middle of the right side. The other spaces are future auto dealer sites. The dealerships in the first phase of the project are at the bottom. For perspective, State Route 32 runs along the bottom.

Colwell runs for Georgetown Council BY Martha B. Jacob The Brown County Press

With two seats up for grabs for Georgetown Council, there will be one name printed on the November ballot and that name is Virginia L. Colwell. Most people from Georgetown will recognize her as “Ginny Colwell,” former fiscal officer for the Village of Georgetown. One write-in candidate, Kelley Campbell, Jr. will also be on the November ballot, (this candidate was unofficial as of press time). Before serving as fiscal officer, Colwell had also served as a council member and as utilities department officer for the Village of Georgetown. She is well-known for serving residents of the community and is looking forward to serving again as councilwoman. Ginny’s brother, current Councilman

know how to make things happen. The best thing I can say from Washington is

to just get out of your way and let you do your thing,” Wenstrup said to laughter.

On June 4, 2015, a Two Count indictment was filed against Chad William Calvin in Case No. 20152145. The indictment charged Count One, Aggravated Trafficking in Drugs, a felony of the 3rd degree, having a maximum penalty of 36 months in prison, $10,000.00 fine and an operator’s license suspension between 6 months and 3 years; Count Two, Aggravated Trafficking in Drugs, a felony of the 2nd degree, having a maximum penalty of 8 years in prison and a $15,000.00 fine. On August 21, 2015 the Defendant entered a plea of guilty to Count One before Brown County Common Pleas Judge Scott T. Gusweiler. On August 21, 2015 Judge Gusweiler sentenced Mr. Calvin to a confine-

ment of 24 months in the Ohio Department of Corrections. The Court will consider Judicial Release into the STAR Program after 90 days. The Defendant also has an operator’s license suspension for 12 months. Judge Gusweiler further advised the Defendant of an optional 3 years of Post Release Control through the Adult Parole Authority upon his release from prison.

dents. “A lot of people have concern about the Iran deal because they see that it shows American weakness in a lot of ways and we’ve given up a lot, Wenstrup said.” He added that Iran has caused trouble for the United States for years, and not just on the nuclear weapons front. “We have a district here that has a high sense of patriotism and a lot of military families. We have lost a lot of young men and women in Iraq due to weapons provided by Iran. They have American blood on their hands. There is nothing in this deal that cuts down their aggression against

America,” he said. Regarding the controversial series of Planned Parenthood videos recently released by an anti-abortion group, Wenstrup said that the subject is getting people’s attention. “People who may not have been pro-life are disgusted by what they are seeing. It totally devalues life. I think it’s bothering a lot of people and they want something done. I would hope that we are going to be able to do that,” he said. Wenstrup was referring to cutting federal funding to the organization. The congressman also discussed a trip to Israel which he recently returned from. “It’s a very moving experience to be in the holy

land to walk where Christ walked,” he said. “They live with struggles, but they are a happy people. They are developing things, participating in the world markets. It’s pretty impressive when you consider all the security challenges they face.” Wenstrup also said that he and other members of congress are continuing to work toward a better economic future. “I would hope that people see a brighter day ahead. I think we are blessed with opportunity for energy independence and where people want to come and set up their business and to thrive. I think if we focus on that and a few less regulations, I think America can take off.”

Pitts graduates 40th annual Pumpkin Run set for Oct. 2-4 basic training BY Kari Strunk Contributor Come the first weekend in October do you know where you will be? I can answer that question the same as I have for numerous years. I will be at the Pumpkin Run Nationals car show. The Fastiques Rod & Custom car club hosts the show at the Clermont County Fairgrounds right in our backyard in the quaint town of Owensville. The local hot rodders of the Fastiques pour out their hearts and souls on a volunteer basis to make this show a success year after year. This year marks the 40th annual event which will show 1970 or older vehicles. The number of registered cars has numbered well above 2500 in years past! There is much more to do this weekend than just checking out the classic cars. On Friday night, there will be a dance contest with J.D. Hughes Celebrity DJ. Saturday night will feature a bean supper and the local cover band, Saffire Express, will perform some

toe-tappin’ tunes. On Sunday there will be a model car contest with trophies to be awarded. There will also be valve cover races and hot wheel drag races. Each day there will also be a split-the-pot. In past years, the take-home winnings have been over $10,000. The main benefactor of proceeds is the Shriner's Hospital for Children. For you ladies out there, a "Women's World" indoor shopping area offers many hand-made items, bakery goods, jewelry, crafts, and much more. Clermont Pets Alive will have adorable canines on hand that are in need of homes. There are numerous scrumptious choices for food and desserts. As you can tell, this is not your average car show. All weekend long you can browse the swap meet aisles. If you haven't experienced a swap meet, let me explain. Basically, it's a large yard sale focusing on the sale of car parts and tools. However, you do come across antiques, collectibles and other long lost treasures. So even if you

aren’t a car buff, come stroll the aisles with some cash on hand. You just might find that obscure item you didn’t know you couldn’t live without. The indoor/outdoor swap meet is the place to find that needed one-off part or the ever desired gas sign to hang proudly in the garage. There's always room for one more sign - at least that's what my husband tells me. Also featured in the swap meet area are local businesses such as Highley Hot Rods, Dropped Axle Productions and Queen City Fab. These local businesses along with many others offer a broad range of your hot rod needs. If a classic car hasn't been out of its garage up 'til this point, you better bet it'll be out for this show as it's the final show of the year. It's surprising what emerges from the deep dark depths of some garages. Sometimes you hear all this talk about a car and when it finally sees the light of day, you know someone has been hard at work all year round. If you'd like to register

your car before September 21st, there is a pre-entry fee of $30. This nominal fee includes admission for 2 adults and one show tshirt. If you enter the day of the show, the $30 fee still gets in 2 adults, but sorry no shirt. Did I mention that each registered car or truck will receive a ticket for the grand prize drawing? This year you could walk away with a '40 Willys coupe! I ask the same question every year - will it be sitting on our trailer at the end of the show? Wouldn't that be a nice souvenir? But it hasn't yet happened. Notice, I say "yet". If you just want to come and check out the show, the admission is $8 and children under 12 are free. So I hope you'll join me the first weekend in October. Until then, keep dreaming, building and more importantly...cruisin'. For more information, visit

Marcy’s COUNTRY TABLE BY MARCY WILSON If you’re growing basil, like me, you probably have an abundant harvest. I like to make pesto, that flavorful Italian sauce. You can double this recipe and can freeze it for winter use. I make mine in the food processor, but the blender works well if you add the oil first. BASIL PESTO 1 clove garlic 2 tablespoons pine nuts 2 tablespoons butter 2 cups basil leaves, packed 3/4 cup Parmesan cheese Enough olive oil to make a sauce, start with 1/4 cup With processor’s motor running, add garlic and nuts. Add everything else and using the pulse button, pulse until just mixed, then pour into containers and freeze.


COUNTRY KITCHEN WISDOM • Substitute walnuts for the pine nuts, or just leave nuts out. • Freeze in the amounts you’ll be using. • Make a quick sauce for pasta with a little of the pasta water and pesto. The water thins the pesto so that it coats the pasta. • Basil contains vitamins A and C. Marcy Wilson is a former food editor who enjoys cooking and gardening with her family.

Rockets blast past Jays in season opener Hat tricks for Kirchner and Iles BY Wade Linville The Brown County Press


backed by some aggressive defensive play from players such as Nic Ball in their season opener. Both the Rockets and the Jays took the field this season under the leadership of new coaching. James Attinger, a former high school soccer standout of Fayetteville, took over as the new head soccer coach for the Rockets this season while Amber Dudley has taken over as the head coach for the RULH varsity boys soccer team. Following varsity boys' soccer action was the varsity girls' match-up between the RULH Lady Jays and the Fayetteville-Perry Lady Rockets, an exciting bout that would end in a 1-1 tie.

Georgetown opens league play with win BY Wade Linville The Brown County Press The Georgetown Lady GMen kicked off league play with a 4-0 victory over the visiting Bethel-Tate Tigers in a dominating performance on Tuesday, Aug. 25. The Lady G-Men suffered two losses to the Lady Tigers in league play last season, but with a mix of experience and young talent this year's Georgetown varsity squad is looking to earn some respect in the Southern Buckeye Athletic/Academic Conference National Division. “We still have a lot of games to go, but it was good to see the girls come out with a win in their first league game,” said Georgetown girls' soccer coach, Ashley Corbin. “We lost to Bethel twice last year, so I

was happy to see us get a win over them this early in the season.” Georgetown freshman Bella Clifton came through with some fine saves as the Lady G-Men's goalkeeper, recording her first shutout

of the season. Also among those performing well on the defensive end for the Lady G-Men were seniors Kelsey Crawford and Rachel Gibbons. CONTINUED ON PAGE 15

The 2015 fall soccer season is officially underway for Brown County's high school teams. To kick off the new season, the RipleyUnion-Lewis-Huntington Blue Jays ventured to Fayetteville-Perry High School to take on the homestanding Rockets on Friday, Aug. 21, and it was the Rockets dominating for a 90 victory. It was Fayetteville's Evan Kirchner scoring the first goal of the day to give the Rockets an early 1-0 lead. Later in the first half it

was Fayetteville's Max Iles firing for his first goal of the game to expand the Rockets' lead to 2-0. Kirchner scored again with 9:38 to go in the first half to up the Rockets' lead to 3-0. Kirchner recorded a hat trick in the first half, recording his third goal of the game off a penalty shot with 7:10 to go before halftime break. Just over three minutes into the second half, it was Iles scoring his second goal of the day to put the Rockets up 5-0. Iles scored his third goal of the game with 33:50 to

go in the second half, marking the second Fayetteville player to record a hat trick against the visiting Jays to widen the margin to 6-0. Following some fine saves by Ripley goalkeeper Michael Oberschlake, it was Fayetteville's Kyle Meyer firing for a goal to expand the Rockets' lead to 7-0 with 26:28 to go. Meyer scored his second goal of the game with 4:02 to play, leaving the Jays trailing 8-0. The ninth Rocket goal came from Colin Conner, capping off the 9-0 victory for Fayetteville.

On the offensive end, freshman Amaya Lovell and senior Cheyenne Dunseith fired for two goal apiece to account for all of the Lady G-Men's scoring. Delivering some nice passes on the offensive end for the Lady G-Men were freshmen Madi Kattine and Lauren Carter, as well as senior Stephanie Ayers. Lovell fired for the Lady G-Men's first goal of the night with just over 29 minutes to go in the first half. With 2:35 to go before halftime break, it was Dunseith scoring her first goal of the night to give the Lady G-Men a 2-0 advantage. The Lady Tigers showed

improvement on defense early in the second half, but eventually the Lady GMen's determination would pay off. Clifton deflected a hard Bethel shot early in the second half to hold the Lady Tigers scoreless, and with 24:36 to go in the game it was Lovell recording her second goal of the night to up the Georgetown lead to 3-0. With 22:16 to go, Dunseith drove in her second goal of the night to leave the Lady Tigers trailing 40. The Lady G-Men would hold sturdy on defense for the remainder of the game to celebrate a four-point victory. “We played good,”

Corbin said of her Lady GMen following the win over Bethel. “There were a lot of things we have worked on in practice that we went out and did today, so I was pleased.” The Lady G-Men took the field against Bethel coming off a 3-3 tie in their season opener against Clark-Montessori from Aug. 22. This year's Georgetown girls' varsity soccer roster includes seven freshmen, and six of them are starters. The Lady G-Men were on the road for Thursday's league bout against the Williamsburg Lady Wildcats, and they will continue their season with a league game at Felicity-Franklin High School on Sept. 1.

Football season gets underway for Western Brown varsity squad

BY Wade Linville The Brown County Press

A new football season is officially underway for the Western Brown Broncos. A crowd gathered at Western Brown's Kibler Stadium/LaRosa's Field on Aug. 21, as the Broncos held their annual Football Jamboree just a week before their official season opener at Hillsboro.

The PeeWee football teams of Western Brown were first to take the field during the Aug. 21 Jamboree, entertaining the large crowd of fans as they faced off in friendly scrimmage games. The Western Brown junior high football squad took on the Batavia Bulldogs in a preseason scrimmage as action continued during the Bronco Jamboree, and top-

ping off the night was the Western Brown varsity team taking on Turpin in a half-game scrimmage. The skilled Turpin squad hit the gridiron ready to roll, quickly jumping to a 21-0 lead over the Broncos. Turpin topped off a drive with a field goal early in the second quarter, upping their lead to 24-0. Just before reaching the midway point in the second quarter, it was Western Brown sophomore Zach Stacy hauling in a pass from senior QB Chaiten Tomlin and taking it nearly 20 yards to put the Broncos at the Turpin one-yard line, where they topped off a nice drive with a short touchdown pass to senior wide receiver Eean Hornung. The touchdown reception by Hornung marked the only time the Broncos would find pay dirt against the Turpin defense, narrowing the margin to 24-7. The half-game varsity scrimmage would end with Turpin leading by 17. Bronco back-up players took the field to scrimmage for nearly five minutes into the third quarter, giving up two touchdowns to Turpin. The night would end with Turpin leading 38-7. The Aug. 21 scrimmage against a skilled and ready Turpin squad may not have been the type of performance the Broncos hoped to put together in front of their crowd of fans who came out for the Jamboree, but it certainly helped them prepare for their Aug. 28 season opener at Hillsboro to kick off their 2015 campaign on the gridiron.

Ohio Wildlife Council approves 20152016 Waterfowl Regulations and hears new proposal on CWD surveillance

Ohio’s waterfowl season dates and bag limits were approved by the Ohio Wildlife Council at its meeting on Wednesday, Aug. 19, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR). In addition, the council was presented a new proposal to strengthen the state’s ability to address chronic wasting disease (CWD) in Ohio. The proposed rule would allow the Chief of the ODNR Division of Wildlife to establish a “disease surveillance area” when chronic wasting disease has been detected in a wild or captive deer. This proposed rule would not automatically make an area with a CWD positive sample a “disease surveillance area,” but would allow the division to consider the situation and establish the area as needed. A “disease surveillance area” designation would include all areas within a minimum of six miles surrounding any location where the disease has been detected. If an area would be designated as a “disease surveillance area,” the designation would remain in

6th annual King of Compacts held at MRP

Chris shelton, sr. takes his throne on victory lane after becoming King of the Compacts at Moler raceway Park, Aug. 21.


BY Mike Goins The Brown County Press

The 6th annual event featuring the front wheel drive compact competitors would see a strong field of cars on hand to battle it out for the opportunity to be Crowned King at Moler Raceway Park, Aug. 21. In the heat one, it was Dry Ridge, Kentucky’s Blake Gibson taking the win over Villa Hills driver Kevin Pennick. In heat race two, it was Kettering's Nic Barrett with the win over “King Bubba” (Jerry Gibson III). The third and final heat would see Chris Shelton, Sr., of Maysville, Ky, take the win over Tony Reed, of Florence, Ky. The top six cars in passing points would move on to the $200 to win Alsip Masonry dash event which would also set the order for the first three rows of the feature. The starting order of the dash was done by a blind draw on the front stretch immediately before the race and it was Tony Reed and Nic Barrett starting in row one of the dash. Reed would jump to the lead at the green flag with Chris Shelton, Sr. in close pursuit. An accident on lap three would claim Blake Gibson as a victim and would end his evening. On the restart, it was Reed the leader but high point man and sixth place starter King Bubba up to second position with Bloomington, Indiana's Greg Garrison charging to third. With two laps remaining Garrison would take the lead and go on to claim the winning money and the pole position of the 20 lap feature event. At the drop of the green flag it was Garrison out front with “King Bubba” in pursuit. On lap four, Gibson would make contact with Garrison spinning in the front stretch wall. Gibson was put on the tail and Garrison's night was over. On the restart it was Tony Reed the leader with Chris Shelton, Sr. in close pursuit. The top two would stay nose to tail throughout most of the feature. Following a lap 14 caution for the stopped machine of Carson Freeman

the battle up front became more intense. On the restart, the top cars would race side by side until a lap 17 caution for Zach Bandstutter. Shelton would take control of the top spot on the restart. As the green flag waved for the three lap shootout it was Nic Barrett taking over second position and putting pressure on the leader but to no avail as Chris Shelton, Sr. would go on to claim the win in the prestigious event put on by The crew. In addition to $1,000 in winnings, Shelton would also claim a trophy courtesy of Diamond Cut Lawn Care, a set of jack stands from Taterbuilt, a new George Foreman Grill, as well as the most prestigious item of all the Crown and the Title of King Chris VI. Barrett would come home in second position with Reed, Bill Gibson, Ryan Eversole (who started 18th) completing the top five running order. In the Late Model division, it was Versailles, Indiana driver Bill Sheets to the lead early in the feature but it was current point leader John Whitney, Jr. in pursuit throughout the main event. Lap 20 would see Whitney work the bottom to make the pass of Sheets and go on to claim his 3rd feature win of the season at MRP and the $1,207.56. Whitney had engine problems a week ago and was actually driving the Killer Chassis machine normally driven by Graylin Prince. Sheets would come home in second with Roger Ruark, Michael Hildebrand, and Daniel Shelton completing the top five spots. Sheets and Whitney were heat race winners. In the Matt's Graphic UMP Modified feature race, it was Joe Godsey and Larry Pickelheimer, Jr. taking heat race wins and setting the feature lineup. At the green flag it was Godsey out front but as the leaders completed lap one Pickelheimer would spin in turn one causing a complete restart. On the restart, it was once again Godsey to the lead but it was Fostoria, Ohio's Shawn Valenti making his first visit to the speedway pretty special as the driver

would put his Ruhlman Racecar, Log Cabin Tavern, Kessler Electric, Power Clean Industrial Services sponsored machine out front from his third starting position and never looking back in taking the win in the 20 lap A-main event. In taking the checkered flag, he would pick up the Racing 411 Motorsports prize money of $700. Godsey would finish in 2nd spot with Dave McWilliams, Jimmy Lennix, Jr. and Spencer Watson completing the top five spots. The Diamond Cut Lawn Care Sport Mod division would see Derek Richmond out front and seemingly on his way to another win but problems with two laps remaining would allow Wallingford,Ky's Mitchell Fields to take the highline and make the pass and go on to claim yet another feature win in his Fields Garage, River Rat Logging, Darrell Fanin Trucking, Hypac Cylinder & Hose Repair sponsored machine. Andy Trout would come home in second spot with Richmond limping across the finish line in third spot with Tony Seibert and AJ Ganino completing the top five spots. Austin McGlone and Richmond were heat race winners. The final event of the evening would see the Tarvin Auto Service Freedom 4's take to the track and it was Sean Jones jumping to the early lead with Joey Wykoff in close pursuit. A caution on lap 6 for the stopped machine of Josh Davis would result in Wykoff having mechanical issues and ending his night. On the restart it was Branden Elam and Miles Tarvin both getting by Jones to take over the top two positions but by lap 11 Jones would retake the lead and go on to claim yet another feature win in his Barber Bros.

Kilee gives back

Provided/The Brown CounTy Press

Kilee Brookbank poses with Mr. reds and Cincinnati reds’ player Billy hamilton during the “Kilee Gives Back” Celebrity Golf outing held Aug. 24.

Kilee Brookbank, a senior of Ripley-Union-LewisHuntington High School, found herself in a fight for her life after being the victim of a home explosion that took place in November of 2014. Brookbank made a miraculous recovery, thanks to the help of her family members, close friends, and Shriners Hospitals for Children. After suffering severe burns on most of her body, the road to recovery has been a long and painful process, but the RULH student has finally been released from Shriners care, and will only have to attend follow up visits around once a year rather than once every few months as she has done recently. She has since returned to the soccer field for her senior season, one of her recovery goals she was able to

accomplish, and has worked extremely hard to get back to her normal way of life as a teenage student/athlete. “I never thought I would make it this far,” Brookbank said while looking back on her months of recovery. Following her recovery, Brookbank wanted to give something back to those of Shriners who played a huge role in her recovery and to help other burn victims. On Aug. 24, Kilee Brookbank was able to give back by hosting her own “Kilee Gives Back” Celebrity Golf Outing at Kenwood Country Club, an event in which proceeds went to benefit Shriners Hospitals for Children in Cincinnati. “It feels really good to know that I'm helping people,” Brookbank said of her golf outing, which drew celebrities such as former and current Cincinnati Reds' players Billy Hamilton, Aroldis Chapman,

Dave Concepcion, Cesar Geronimo, and George Foster. Those taking part in the golf outing got the opportunity to bid on a chance to throw out the first pitch at a Reds' game, win two tickets and a meet and greet with Justin Bieber, win an autographed Kid Rock guitar, and much more. Kilee Brookbank's mother, Lori Highlander, said a final tally had not yet been determined as to just how much “Kilee Gives Back” raised to benefit Shriners, but went on to say the event was a great success and a lot of fun for those who attended. Kilee Brookbank and her family thanked all those who showed their support at the golf outing, and hopes that their efforts will go a long way to help others in need.

Increased deer populations can seriously affect native plant communities, and for this reason, the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) will coordinate special deer hunts at three state nature preserves to help preserve the rare and protected plants that grow on these properties. This year, Goll Woods in Fulton County, Lawrence Woods in Hardin County and Lake Katharine in Jackson County, will offer opportunities for hunters to be granted access to hunt. Impacts of deer to high quality habitats at several state nature preserves continue to be observed. Not only are we losing our native plants from over-browsing, but evidence now suggests that increased browsing by deer may actually promote the spread of garlic mustard, a non-native invasive plant that also displaces our native species. Application for the hunts this year will be handled locally by individual preserve managers. Hunters must attend individual meetings if they are interested in particular hunts. At that time, hunters

can enter the drawing by purchasing a single ticket at a price of $5. Other requirements include: - Hunters must possess a valid 2015-16 hunting license in order to purchase tickets. - Names will be randomly drawn, and those selected will be assigned a specific time to hunt. An orientation will be conducted immediately following the drawing. - Hunters will be permitted to hunt with a partner; however, the partner is not required to attend the drawing or orientation. - Hunters interested in both the Lake Katharine gun and archery hunts will have to purchase separate lottery tickets. Hunts at Goll Woods and Lawrence Woods will be archery-only hunts. Successful lottery winners of these hunts will be offered two week blocks of time to hunt. Hunters may apply for hunts at multiple sites, but they must attend the meeting for each hunt in order to enter the drawing. Do not mail entry forms. Hunt locations and meeting dates are as follows:

- Lawrence Woods State Nature Preserve (Hardin County) - The archery hunt drawing will be held at the preserve parking area, located at 13278 County Road 190, Kenton, 43226 on Sunday, Sept. 6, at 1 p.m. Contact Ryan Schroeder at 419-4451775 or ryan.schroeder@dnr.state.oh. us to learn more about this opportunity. - Goll Woods State Nature Preserve (Fulton County) The archery hunt drawing will be held at the preserve office, located at 26093 County Road F., Archbold, 43502 on Saturday, Sept. 12, at 9 a.m. Contact Ryan Schroeder at 419-445-1775 or ryan.schroeder@dnr.state.oh. us to learn more about this opportunity. - Lake Katharine State Nature Preserve (Jackson County) - The drawings will be held at the preserve office located at 1703 Katharine Road, Jackson, 45640 on Saturday, Sept. 12, at 10 a.m. Contact Jason Garey at 740286-2487 or to learn more about this opportunity.

Scarecrows on the Fence contest set The Ripley Library is inviting the public to help decorate the fence in front of the library for Fall with scarecrows. The fence can accommodate twenty scarecrows. The library will provide the cross form and burlap for the head. You do not have to use the burlap to create a head and can get as creative as you like. There are many examples of scarecrows on the internet using things like buckets, plastic pumpkins, pillow cases and burlap for the head. The forms are for anyone who would like to create a scarecrow. There are very few rules. The scarecrow must be a traditional family friendly scarecrow. If you are not sure if your idea is family friendly, just call the library and ask. You must use the form sup-

plied. Scarecrow forms will be available for pick up on Saturday, September 12th. If you would like to reserve a scarecrow form before the pickup day, either stop by and sign the sheet or call the library. Your completed scarecrow is due back to the library by Friday, September 25th. On Saturday, September 26th at 11:00 a.m., an unveiling of each scarecrow will take place. Each scarecrow will be covered with a garbage bag when it is turned in. The library staff will attach a label to each one before it is attached to the fence with its creator’s name. All scarecrows will be photographed and appear on the library Facebook page

MO Renegades meet BY Rachel Luti Mt. Orab Renegades On August 24, 2015 the Mt. Orab Renegades started the meeting at 7:12 p.m. and had 19 members present. Daina Butree read the pledges, then there was the treasurers report. In old business we passed out shirts and fairbooks, then we worked on demonstration boards.

In new business we discussed small animal tag in that many people missed. Then we worked on buyers letters. Next meeting Karleigh Fisher is bringing snacks and Sarah McConnel is bringing drinks. The meeting then adjourned at 8:12 p.m. One last note of interest is McEnna Emmory did a really cool hula hoop project/demonstration.
