2013 Brown County Fair a big hit BY Martha B. Jacob The Brown County Press It’s been a great week at the 162nd Brown County Fair according to fair board president Orville Whalen, Jefferson Township resident. Whalen has been a part of the fair for over 30 years, 17 years as president. Whalen said he arrives at the fairgrounds every morning by 6 a.m. to open everything up and make sure things are the way they’re supposed to be. “Attendance has been running daily about what is usually does,” Whalen said. “Last year was a great year and I believe this years’ fair might be even bigger. “The cheerleading competition was really exciting and everyone enjoyed watching it. But then it’s always a popular event.” Thursday at the fair was ‘Senior Recognition Day’ which was well attended. Awards were presented for: • oldest lady in attendance; • oldest gentleman in attendance; •couple married to each other the longest; • person attending the most Brown County Fairs. Senior citizens also enjoyed a fun walk, line dancing and games. All the participants in the games re-
ceived ribbons and a chance to win door prizes. Whalen said that all the Open Shows were also very well attended and Brown County residents fared will in the open shows. “I always enjoy getting on the microphone every morning at 8 a.m. to announce the opening of the fair,” Whalen said with a chuckle. “I like doing some funny little thing to start everyone’s day. “This years big pumpkin show was a big hit, we had one pumpkin that weighed in at 943 pounds and one at 808 pounds. They are really something to see. And I understand pumpkins are not really that easy to raise, the weather has a real effect on them. “The bake sale is also a favorite of mine, they sell the top two cakes and pies in the floral hall. It’s always well attended.” Whalen added that this years open feeder calf competition had 108 entries which is huge. Improvements have also been made to the fairgrounds. They include about fifty thousand dollars worth of electrical improvements, a new roof on the swine barn and work done to the small animal building. One big change is the adCONTINUED ON PAGE 14

A’deen council split over plant BY Wayne Gates The Brown County Press The Aberdeen Village Council is split down the middle over the issue of giving back the bond money that was borrowed to build a water plant in the village. A settlement offer between the village and bondholder Annette Mineer was
presented at the September 16 council meeting. It calls for the village to give Mineer the $2,742,886.27 currently being held by U.S. Bank. The village is also agreeing to return 62.5 percent of the estate taxes that Mineer is expected to pay the village. That amount will be approxCONTINUED ON PAGE 14

The owners of all but one of these mail boxes were notified by the postal service that they have to raise the height of the boxes by at least four inches, or they will not receive their mail.
Crosstown Road residents told to raise the height of their mail boxes, or mail delivery will be suspended
Raise your mailbox or your mail will not be delivered. That’s what hundreds of residents living near Williamsburg in Brown County were recently told in a letter from Todd Hawks, Postmaster of the U.S. Postal Service in Batavia. According to Crosstown Road residents Brenda Coburn and Gloria Bare, they, along with most of their neighbors, were notified by letter that they had until September 23, 2013 to move the location of their mailboxes and make them higher by four to five inches. “We always got our mail out of the Williamsburg post

office until it closed,” Coburn explained. “Then our mail carrier was transferred to the Batavia office. When she worked out of Williamsburg she drove her car, but in Batavia she has to drive a larger vehicle. “So now, about a week ago myself and most of my neighbors received a letter telling us we all have to move our mailboxes.” Portions of the letter received from Batavia Postmaster Hawks stated.... ....We recently went through some changes in the mode of delivery which has resulted in issues with your mailbox location or the height of your mail box. The mail boxes should have always been 44” to 48” from the top of the
blacktop road to the bottom of the mailbox...... ....these changes are necessary for the safety of the mail carrier. It also enables the carrier to work in a more efficient manner. These changes to your mailbox need to be completed by September 23, 2013. ...if not fixed the delivery of your mail may be suspended...... Coburn stated that she has not received her mail the last couple of days because she hasn’t moved her mail box. “A few of my neighbors didn’t get the letter,” Coburn added. “And when the rest of us didn’t get our mail delivered, a few people did. Both Coburn and Bare said they feel that because the county engineers moved
their mailboxes in the first place, they should be responsible for changing them back. In a phone interview with Batavia Postmaster Hawks he admitted that he had received multiple calls from the residents on that mail route expressing their concerns about their mail not being delivered. “We have had to make changes to our mail routes in zip code areas 45103 and 45176,” Hawks said. “That’s between 500 and 600 boxes that have to be changed. “We are sending out about 20 to 25 letters at a time to customers. In these letters we give each of them two weeks to comply which is plenty of time. CONTINUED ON PAGE 14
Unemployment drops in August BY Wayne Gates The Brown County Press The unemployment rate in Brown County fell to 7.3 percent in August, down .3 percent from July. Other surrounding counties saw similar declines in the jobless rate, with Adams County falling .2 percent to
10.3 percent, Clermont County falling .5 percent to 6.3 percent, Clinton County falling .4 percent to 9.5 percent and Highland County dropping .4 percent to 9.2 percent. The figures from the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services show that the unemployment rate in
Brown County has fallen back to pre-”Great Recession” numbers. The jobless rate in Brown County in August of 2008 was 7.5 percent, compared to 7.6 percent in August of 2013. The story is much the same statewide, with ODJFS CONTINUED ON PAGE 14

Letters to the Editor
Castle: ‘Build Aberdeen water plant’ Dear Editor, I have always believed that the foremost responsibility of a public office holder is to protect the people in which he or she is elected to represent. As the citizens of Aberdeen are painfully aware, the village has been embroiled in a controversial debate over construction of a new water plant since 2010. There are vocal proponents and opponents of the issue in the village. I, as an elected council member as well as a paralegal, have always been of the opinion that the village signed a legally valid contract and should therefore honor its commitment regardless of personal feelings either way. In May of 2013, the Brown County Common Pleas Court issued a summary judgment against the Village Council of Aberdeen, Ohio. The judgment stated that the village, had indeed, breached the contract. This breach occurred because council members Billie Eitel, Jason Phillips, Robert Verville, and James Perraut refused to go forward with the legally binding contract regarding
construction of the water plant. Due to their actions, the village now faces a punitive damages award for breaching said contract and has thus far spent over $100,000 of taxpayer funds on legal costs. In August of 2013, the bondholder for the project (Annette Mineer) and the previous majority of the Village Council were required, by the bond trustees, to attend mediation in an attempt to resolve the stalemated water plant issue. They came up with a tentative agreement that satisfied each party. It must be pointed out that there was never a formal council resolution adopted that called for or allowed any council member or mayor to negotiate on behalf of the Village of Aberdeen on this issue. Nor was there ever a formal council vote to assign any of their own members to act in the capacity of a negotiator. In the meantime, Aberdeen Council member Robert Verville resigned citing health issues. Mayor Foxworthy appointed Dr. Matt Shotwell to fill the open seat. Mayor Foxworthy stated that the addition of Dr. Shotwell would improve
the reputation of the council and noted that he was a very intelligent individual. Dr. Shotwell took his council seat at the September 16th meeting of the Aberdeen Council. At this meeting the bond lawyer, Brenda Weimer, reviewed the proposed agreement and took questions from the council regarding such. Council members actively questioned and debated Mrs. Weimer on specifics which resulted in a resolution made by council member Castle, seconded by council member Applegate, to proceed with construction of the water plant. Council members Applegate, Castle and Dr. Shotwell voting in favor of resuming the water plant construction and members Eitel, Phillips, and Perraut voting in opposition. The Mayor casted the tiebreaking vote not to proceed. Council member Eitel proposed to adopt the agreement but members Castle and Applegate opted for a parliamentary procedure and refused to suspend the rules, meaning the council had to have three separate meetings for readings prior to voting on the issue. Mayor Foxworthy then quickly sched-
uled two special meetings for Thursday and Friday (of last week) to force this agreement through. These special meetings did not take place due to lack of a Quorum (four members present). However in regard to the September 21st scheduled special meeting, despite the fact that there was no quorum for the said meeting councilmembers Eitel, Perraut, and Phillips as well as Mayor Foxworthy and Village Solicitor Grimes went on to hold an Executive Session for 40 minutes duration and asked the attending public to leave in violation of ORC 121.22 (G) which states, “A public body may hold an executive session only after a majority of a quorum of the public body determines, by roll call vote, to hold an executive session and only at a regular or special meeting.” Aberdeen resident Dave Sebolt was asked to leave this illegal meeting and timed its duration. I do not support the agreement between the bondholder and one constantly feuding faction of council. I believe it is the primary responsibility of any village council and or mayor to proCONTINUED ON PAGE 13
In less than two weeks, enrollment begins for the health law’s new insurance marketplace, allowing almost one million Ohioans to become eligible for financial assistance to purchase quality, affordable health insurance. Starting October 1, Ohioans without insurance, or those who would like to change their insurance plans, can shop for health insurance coverage at www.healthcare.gov. For years, we’ve heard stories of Americans frustrated and failed by our health system. But today, the tide is turning and we are starting to see the health law take effect. When this enrollment period begins, more than 916,000 Ohio residents will be eligible for financial assistance to buy insurance that provides quality coverage at a price they can afford. And Ohioans suffering from preexisting conditions will no longer be denied coverage or charged higher premiums. For Ohioans like Robert, a cancer survivor from New Matamoras, the new health law means that insurers cannot turn him away based on his pre-existing condition. For Aaron in Cincinnati, it means not having to choose between tuition and health care. And for Stephen in West Chester, it means being able to feel secure in his retirement. Health care enrollment marks a milestone for millions of Ohioans – including myself. In 1992, I made a promise that I wouldn’t accept Congressional health insurance until similar coverage was available to all Americans. Today, I can now say that I will be enrolling in the health care marketplace this fall alongside hundreds
SENATOR SHERROD BROWN of thousands of Ohioans. While the new enrollment period will soon allow all Ohioans to access quality, affordable health coverage, millions of people in our state are already benefiting from provisions in the health care law. For example, 97,000 young adults in Ohio are now able to stay on their parents’ insurance until their 26th birthday. We are also closing the ‘donut hole’ for seniors’ prescription drugs – saving Ohio seniors an average of $774 on their medication costs. More than 900,000 Ohioans have received free preventive care, and children are no longer being denied coverage for pre-existing conditions, like asthma, diabetes, and cancer. For millions across the Buckeye state, the new law will mean less worry and more money in their wallets. And for many Americans, the health insurance marketplace will lower premiums nearly 14 percent more than previously expected. There is still more work to be done to perfect our nation’s health care system. But on October 1, I will join millions of Ohioans as we take a step towards a future where worry and failed protections will soon become a thing of the past. SEN.

broken in, off the frame. We discovered it Friday evening, September 13, 2013. I called the Clermont County Sheriff. They quickly sent a Deputy to take pictures and make a report. All of the items taken were metal. Saturday morning I went to the closest Scrap Yard. It is located in Hamersville. I quickly found the items in the Scrap Yard. I went to the office and informed the staff in the office I had found the stolen items. I called the brown County Sheriff. They said the theft occurred in Clermont County and it was their case. I then called the Clermont County Sheriff. They quickly dispatched a Deputy to meet me at the Scrap Yard. The Deputy and I walked to the Scrap ard to identify the items. I had a piece of the barn siding to verify it matched what was in the Scrap Yard. The items stolen were several pieces of metal barn siding, washer, dryer, water heater, cast iron sink top, electric heaters, 3 air conditioners, electric wire
and a trumpet. The Deputy and I were stopped by the owner (of the Scrap Yard). He told us unless I had the serial numbers of the items we could not remove or take pictures of the items. He said that was the only way I could prove to him they were mine. I then asked the Deputy if he could stop us from identifying the stolen items. He (the Deputy) said yes. So I am standing looking at the items and cannot do anything about it. The Scrap Yard copies the drivers license of anyone who brings items in. The owner would not give us access to those records. My advice to everyone is engrave your name on any items that are stored in your barn, storage building or your home. The owner of the Scrap Yard told me these thefts will only get worse. So get ready for it. I told him his policy would only help the thieves, not the property owners. David R. Stowell, Tate Township

JOHN In Matthew chapter 3 we have the story of John the Baptist. John was a cousin of the Lord Jesus Christ. Mary, the mother of Jesus, was a relative to Elisabeth and Zacharias, who were the parents of John the Baptist. John, who was an answer to prayer (Luke 1:13), was born late in the life of Zacharias, a high priest. He was raised as a godly young man and now in chapter 3 of Matthew he is preaching. Verses 1-2: “In those days came John the Baptist, preaching in the wilderness of Judaea, And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” He was preaching repentance. He warned them to turn their life around, turn away from their sin, do a complete about face! He warned them to get right with God. He was saying: the kingdom of heaven is at hand so it is time for you to change your way of living; with God’s help you can do it. Verse 3: “For this is he that was spoken of by the prophet Esaias, saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.” He was quoting Isaiah (Esaias) chapter 40 and verse 3. Matthew 3:4: “And the same John had his raiment of camel’s hair, and a leathern girdle about his loins; and his meat was locusts and wild honey.” He was a very committed, dedicated young preacher. He wasn’t living on a lot; he was just out to do his job! Watch the response to his preaching. Verses 5-6: “Then went out to him Jerusalem, and all Judaea, and all the region round about Jordan, And were baptized of him in Jordan, confessing their sins.” This was all the city of Jerusalem, the state of Judea, and all the region around the Jordan river. He had a multitude of people coming out. He had no newspaper, no radio, and no TV advertising and yet he had these crowds coming out to hear him! They heard, they repented of their sins, and they were baptized. Understand now, this was not the church baptism. This was before Christ was crucified. This baptism was of John (Acts 19: 3-5). I won’t go into that except to say that it is not the same. However, John was preaching about Jesus the Messiah. Therefore, they were
DR. CHARLES SMITH MT. ORAB BIBLE BAPTIST CHURCH WWW.BBMTORAB.COM
thinking that the Lord was coming so they responded by repenting and being baptized. I believe that each individual that believed in Jesus and repented was saved. You do not have to be in a church to be saved. The only difference today is that you also have to believe in the resurrection of Jesus Christ (Romans 10:9). But, I see there was a problem back there. The problem that I see is in the book of Hosea 6:3: “Then shall we know, if we follow on to know the LORD....” These people that John preached to seemed to disappear after he was beheaded. They did not follow on to know the LORD. There were hundreds, if not thousands, of people who followed John. Where were they at the crucifixion of Jesus? In fact, the only disciple that was there was the Apostle John. The problem was that, although they were individually saved, they were not collectively united. There is strength when people are collectively united and there is weakness in division. As a lone individual they just didn’t get involved. I believe that the application of what happened to all those people that John preached to is what happens so often in our churches today. They get saved and baptized and the next thing you know is that they just seem to disappear. They are not involved. If they are truly saved they are going to heaven, but will they ever do anything for God? They probably never will. They get saved and baptized and then drop out. They do not get involved collectively with the church. They never learn that we need each other in order to stay strong for Christ and to work together to further the Gospel of Christ. It takes all of us to conduct the work of God. So, get saved, get baptized, and then stay in church. Follow on to know the LORD!

Did you know that an older Ohioan falls every two minutes and sustains a fall-related injury every five minutes, resulting in two hospitalizations each hour, an emergency room visit every eight minutes and three deaths each day? Did you know that falls and fall-related injuries cost Ohio more than $4.2 billion each year? Did you know that falling is not a natural part of aging, and most falls can be prevented? Falls are an epidemic among older adults and are the number one cause of injuries leading to emergency visits, hospital stays and deaths in Ohioans age 65-plus. While residents age 65plus make up 13.7 percent of our population, they account for more than 80 percent of fatal falls. According to the Ohio Department of Health, the direct treatment charges alone for fall-related hospitalizations among older Ohioans in 2009 was estimated at $645 million. Add this to other medical costs, missed work for individuals and their caregivers, and lost productivity for employers, falls among older adults have an incalculable impact on all aspects of life in Ohio. “STEADY U Ohio” is a statewide collaborative falls prevention initiative that was recently launched and supported by Ohio government and state business partners to ensure that every county, every community and every Ohioan knows how they can prevent falls, one step at a time. STEADY
PAM MATURA, Executive Director, AAA7
U Ohio’s website (www.steadyu.ohio.gov) is the source in Ohio for falls prevention information, tools and other resources. The Area Agency on Aging District 7, Inc. (AAA7) joins with the Ohio Department of Aging and the STEADY U Ohio initiative to encourage individuals to educate themselves and their loved ones about the risk of falls and fall-related injury that increases as we age. The AAA7 covers Adams, Brown, Gallia, Highland, Jackson, Lawrence, Pike, Ross, Scioto and Vinton Counties. Part of the STEADY U Ohio initiative is expanding access to “A Matter of Balance,” an award-winning program designed to help individuals manage falls risks and increase activity levels. The initiative is working with community partners to make A Matter of Balance available in all 88 Ohio counties. Locally, the Area Agency on Aging District 7 offers “A Matter of Balance” in a number of counties with community coaches available in the area to teach the class. If you are interested in learning more about this class as a participant or serving as a community coach, please call the AAA7 at 1-800582-7277 and ask for extension 215. “Falls among older Ohioans can negatively affect an individual’s health and sense of security, but can also have an impact on the entire fam-
ily,” says Pamela K. Matura, Executive Director of the AAA7. “STEADY U Ohio is an important initiative to help bring falls prevention to the forefront of planning for individuals, families, healthcare providers, business and community leaders, and all Ohioans.” Five easy things you can do to prevent falls are: Increase your physical activity. Simple exercise, like walking or swimming at least 15 minutes a day, can help build muscle strength and improve balance, which can prevent falls. Exercise programs like Tai Chi that increase strength and improve balance are especially good. See your eye doctor once each year. Age-related eye diseases, such as cataracts, macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy, can increase the risk of falling. Early detection is key to minimizing the effects of these conditions. Review your medications. Talk to your doctor or pharmacist about the medicines you are taking and whether they may cause drowsiness or dizziness. Discuss things you can do to ensure you are taking your medicines safely. Remove environmental hazards. Look around the house for anything that could increase the risk of falls, including poor lighting, loose rugs, slippery floors and unsteady furniture. Remove or modify these hazards. Think, plan and slow down. Many falls are caused by hurrying. Slow down and think through the task you are performing. Be mindful of possible falls risks and act accordingly.

Brown County pioneers - Kratzer family The Brown County Genealogical Society is reintroducing this column which appeared in The Brown County Press over 30 years ago. The Society’s goal is to spark interest and encourage participation in researching your family roots here in Brown County. If you have ever used Ancestry.com or other genealogical search engines, have you ever wondered where all the Brown County-related information is derived? Much of it comes from primary documents and records maintained at the county government level and from the extraordinary collection of research materials housed at the Brown County Genealogical Society (BCGS) library. This collection includes birth, death, and marriage records, copies of obituaries and newspapers, historical publications, and family histories, to name a few sources. Regularly in The Brown
LINKS AND CLUES BROWN COUNTY GENEALOGICAL SOCIETY County Press, the BCGS will introduce you to a Brown County Pioneer who may be related to you whether or not your last name is KRATZER. KRATZER FAMILY It is written that the first members of the Kratzer clan of Germany arrived in the English colonies at Philadelphia as early as the 1730s. Our interest is in Simon Kratzer who was born in Germany in 1751 and settled first in Pennsylvania and later migrated to Monongalia County, Virginia, where he and his wife, Hannah, raised two sons named Joseph and Jacob. In about the year 1808, the Kratzers moved to Ohio, likely traveling on the Monongalia River and
making the connection to the Ohio River. According to the Beers History of Brown County, the Kratzers settled on Straight Creek in the neighborhood of related families named Dunn, Pindall, Lucas, and Prickett. The 1811 Male Enumeration List of Eagle Township, Adams County, Ohio, includes residents, Simon, Joseph, and Jacob Kratzer. Brown County would be carved out of Clermont and Adams Counties in 1817. During the War of 1812, Joseph Kratzer served as Captain of an Ohio Company made up of 75 Adams County men from July 29 to September 8, 1812. By 1819, Joseph and Simon Kratzer were included on the Brown County, Ohio, Tax List. Sometime in the 1820s, Joseph Kratzer and his family moved from the Franklin Township area northward to the new township called Green. On January 26, 1838, B. H. Gardner laid out the first settlement, the
tiny village named Benton, on Sterling Creek. Benton was situated between what later became Bardwell and Mt. Orab. In May of 1838, Joseph Kratzer laid out the streets at a crossroads called Greenbush. It was in this vicinity that Joseph Kratzer and his wife Mary, nee Dunn, raised their nine children: Rosannah, Enos, Henry, Samuel, Benjamin, Simon, James, Hannah, and Dorothy. The descendants of these early pioneers have populated many areas of Brown County. You could be a Kratzer and not know it. COME VISIT US! If you are a beginner, a seasoned researcher, or just want to learn to whom you are related, we welcome you to visit us at the BCGS library located at 200 East Cherry Street (the Old Jail), Georgetown, Ohio, opened Thursdays and Saturdays from 12 - 5 p.m. or call us at (937) 378-2746. Our librarians are available to assist you.

Storyteller Beth Brady entertains H’ville kids Second graders at Hamersville School were captivated by September's Storyteller of the Month, Beth Bandy. While telling a story about going to the fair, Beth created a chalk drawing of the main show ring, and then turned the main ring picture into a ferris wheel. She demonstrated how to use geometric shapes to draw several pictures such as a mouse, a pig, a snail, and a rose. Students were fascinated as Beth drew a tractor and then turned it into a train. At the conclusion of storytime, Beth gave second graders a hand-out that shows the steps to draw the different pictures so students could enjoy drawing them on their own. Second grade classes at Hamersville wish to express their appreciation to Beth Bandy. Thank you, Beth Bandy!

Russellville students enjoying rain shelter Russellville students no longer have to stand in the rain (if it rains) at the School Bus Stop on N Middle Street between W Main Street (St Rte 125) and W North Street in the Village of Russellville. The bus stop shelter arrived in time for the first day of the new school year. The Russellville Kiwanis Club in cooperation with local community leaders and organizations pooled resources and donations to provide the materials for construction of the shelter. The project gained momentum when an individual started the fund with a $2.00 donation. The outpouring of others resulted in the $950.00 needed for the materials. The indispensable donation was that of Steve Blevins who constructed the shelter without compensation. The following organizations and individual are to be commended for their generosity and sense of civic mindedness: American Legions Auxiliary Russellville, Celebration in the Park Committee, Village of Russellville, Russellville Kiwanis Club, Becky Cropper, Ron and Mary Anne Dvorachek, Stan and Nancy Purdy Bailey House, Gerry Schumacher, Sammy Mock Construction, and last but not least Elizabeth Neu.
In recognition of excellence and an ongoing commitment to children, the Patri-Tots Learning Center on Central Campus (Hillsboro) of Southern State Community College has received a One-Star Step Up To Quality (SUTQ) award from the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services. The award was presented by the ODJFS Bureau of Child Care and Development which is the state agency responsible for licensing and promoting high standards among Ohio’s early care and education programs. “We congratulate SSCC Patri-Tots Learning Center for its high-quality early care and education program that goes above and beyond Ohio’s licensing standards,” said Terrie Hare, chief of the ODJFS Bureau of Child Care and Development. “By reaching for the stars, SSCC Patri-Tots Learning Center is helping our youngest children develop in a warm, nurturing environment that fosters growth and a love for learning.” Step Up To Quality is a voluntary, three-star quality rating system created to improve the quality of early care and education programs in Ohio.

Grants available teachers to develop WILD school sites The Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) now has grants available for Ohio teachers who have successfully used Project WILD in their classrooms. These funds will allow teachers more opportunities to provide students with hands-on learning about wildlife and habitat. Grants totaling $500 each will be awarded by the ODNR Division of Wildlife on a competitive basis to 40 schools that have participated in Project WILD, a supplemental environmental education cur-
riculum for grades K-12. “A WILD School Site project allows teachers to bring conservation education concepts to life for students by taking lesson plans outdoors,” said Jen Dennison, wildlife education coordinator for the ODNR Division of Wildlife. “It also improves schoolyard habitat for wildlife while providing an outdoor learning experience.” Project WILD uses wildlife and wildlife management techniques to teach traditional school subjects, such as math, sci-
ence and language arts. Now in its 10th year, the grant program provides teachers with funding to purchase the materials, equipment and activities needed to develop WILD School Sites on their campuses. The grants are awarded to applicants who best meet the WILD School Site criteria. Criteria includes participation in one of Ohio’s Project WILD programs, direct improvement of the habitat on the school grounds, involvement of the students in the projects as much as possible and
correlation of the projects to the school’s curriculum. Funding for the WILD School Site grant program comes from the sale of Ohio hunting and fishing licenses. Ohio has 133 certified Wild School Sites around the state. The ODNR Division of Wildlife has awarded 232 grants since 2004, when the grant program was introduced. Interested educators should submit an applica-
marks for the state of Ohio. Each star signals a higher standard of staff qualifications and planned early learning activities. “I commend my staff for their dedication and commitment to the Patri-Tots children and families,” said Site Administrator Kathe Chaney. “Our staff will continue efforts to be a learning center with a known reputation for excellence. Our Central Campus site is very proud to join North Campus Patri-Tots in this achievement.” SUTQ helps parents identify early care and education programs that go beyond the minimum standards of licensing. The star ratings ensure there are fewer children per classroom, highly trained teachers, a more comprehensive early education experience for children, and a focus on continuous improvement. The Patri-Tots Learning Center is a year-round program that serves community members, students, faculty and staff. The center is licensed to care for children from 18 months to 5 years. To learn more, please contact Kathleen Chaney (Hillsboro site) at 1-800-628-7722, ext. 2629, or Karee Shaw (Wilmington site) at 1-800-6287722, ext. 4629, or visit www.sscc.edu/services/patritots.shtml.

Fayetteville Council members took a tour of the recently vacated Fayetteville United Methodist Church building following its September 18 meeting. Council has been discussing the feasibility of purchasing the building and moving councils chambers as well as the police department to the new location. Richard Brown, assistant pastor representing the church, met with council to discuss the qualities of the building and telling them that the building was appraised for $104,000. Mayor Bernie Vilvens asked Brown if the Fayetteville Fire Department (located next to the church) had expressed any interest in purchasing the building. Brown responded that he had discussed the building with the fire department but they expressed no interest. “We haven’t actually listed the building with the realtor yet,” Brown continued, “but we are scheduled to list it by the end of the month, if we can’t sell it on our own. We wanted to get with council before we list it to see if you are interested. We plan on asking $85,000 but we need to know if the village wants to make an offer.” Brown stressed that he needed an answer or an offer from council before the end of the month. Mayor Bernie Vilvens said, following the tour, that it would be a big decision for council to make. “We’re in the very early stages of this issue,” Vilvens said, “I can tell council members have a lot of mixed feelings on this possible transaction and a lot of questions. There is obviously adequate space for everything

BY Martha B. Jacob The Brown County Press Before members of the Fayetteville-Perry Board of Education approved the financial report at its September 19 meeting, member Jim Holden questioned the amount of a bill for Otis Elevator in the amount of $7,390. “I asked John Gauche (building supervisor) what the district gets in return for that money,” board treasurer Jo Anna Carraher explained, “This is something that we only use for the elevator in the elementary school. We have another company that does the middle/high school. This payment is for the entire year. The other
company is paid monthly.” Carraher told the board that the contract includes monthly fire tests that have to be documented, by law. She added that the company comes annually to perform weight tests, also mandated. She said that when the contract was up she would search around for a possible better deal for the district. Following the explanation by Carraher, the financial report was approved. Carraher also updated the board on grant fund changes and how much the district would actually receive. The board approved the changes. The board also discussed their appreciation for the Fayetteville-Perry PTO Boosters, and all that they do for the students of Fayetteville-Perry. According to Superintendent Raegen White, the PTO has a scholarship balance of $5,674 as of September 16. He added that the organization’s general fund numbers are $4,294. Carraher shared with the board that several years ago the PTO made a donation of $15,000 for playground equipment at the new building. The funds were not needed so the money was there in case it was needed. She explained that the school facilities commission
supplied the equipment. “So, I’ve been working with the PTO,” Carraher said, “And these are the items that have been purchased out of that money. They purchased a handicapped swing, paying the cost and for installation. They have also provided over $2,400 for field trips to help offset those costs.” President of the board, Angela Murphy said that she had recently attended a PTO Booster meeting. “I personally talked to them,” Murphy said, “and I told them just how pleased we were with everything they do for the school. If anyone in this district goes to them for something, they are very seldom turned down. They helped purchase school supplies for the teachers this year and plan on helping students next year pay for their school list. I don’t think people in this district realize just how much our PTO does for these students.” Superintendent White also updated the board during his legislative report regarding several House Bills that he is currently watching. “I did want to go over with the board regarding the last superintendents meeting I attended,” White began, “On the Affordable Care no-
were finally told that they would have a meeting to decide if we could be allowed to have the key or not. That makes no sense to me because these are public records. So we decided to put the issue in Cecelia Potts handle it and see what she could get accomplished.” Mayor Vilvens said he would make a call to the commissioners to find out exactly who is in charge of the law library. Chief of police, Randy Carson told council that he was still working on gathering up copies of all titles to his department’s vehicles. At least one vehicle has been sold, and he needed the title to complete the transaction. Carson said if necessary he would obtain a copy of the title.
tification requirements Jo Anna and I discussed this at our last insurance meeting. “Under this Affordable Care Act, school districts must notify all current employees by October 1, 2013 of the availability of health insurance market place, the health insurance exchange and then after October 1, 2013, all new hires must be notified within 14 days of the hire, part-time or fulltime.” White also discussed: • HB 8 (establishes who may carry a gun in school, removes issue from collective bargaining, reduces BOE liability and the BOE can establish the minimum required training with certain limits); • HB 50 (aims to protect the rights of children before and during custodial interrogations by providing certain Miranda type warnings); • HB 59 (new funding formula, student counts changes from once a year to three times a year, open enrolment changes, the Straight A fund for innovative initiatives); • HB 245 (seeks to extend the 10% and 2.5% property tax ‘rollback’ to new and replacement levies approved at the 2013 general election); • HB 215 (authorizes a
board of education to enter into an agreement with a volunteer who is a current or retired law enforcement officer to patrol school grounds to prevent or respond to a mass casualty event). Later in the meeting, Murphy discussed the pending solar energy contracts. “The gentleman from Solar Planet contacted me and said that when the board signed the last contract,” Murphy began, “he said that they are redoing the pricing. Our district’s attorney has looked at the changes and she said that if the board is okay with the pricing the contract was fine.” She added that the changes had to be made because the contract was vague in sections. The board decided to spend more time studying the contract clarifying the wording before the agreement is signed even if a special meeting had to be called. In other business, following an executive session the board approved all out-ofstate trips, the OPES policy, and the sale of two buses at auction. The next scheduled board meeting will be held at 6 p.m. on Thursday, October 17 in the conference room.

They told us that the key wasn’t available to the public.” Campbell said they were told that the law library has no money to pay for people to run it. He said he was told that maybe the law library would allow him to get on the computer to pull up the information he needed. “But then another person came out of an office and told us that ordinances were not available on the website,” Campbell said while shaking his head. “So we

Vilvens said the current building where council meets (which is paid for) would be sold along with the entire block which could allow for new businesses to move in. One council member reminded everyone that the water works as well as the village owned scrolling sign would have to be moved, which introduced a new set of issues to consider. In other business, Village administrator Bob Campbell reported that his efforts to review the village’s zoning ordinances, a couple weeks ago, at the Brown County Law Library had met with a dead end and the issue had now been put in the hands of village solicitor Cecelia Potts. “Jean Evans and I went to Georgetown to visit the law library to see if Fayet-

The Solomon Run lowhead dam was originally constructed in the 1930s to provide a reliable source of drinking water for the St. Martin community. Today, the dam is no longer used for that purpose and the Ursulines are committed to restoring the stream to a more natural state. “Lowhead dams were constructed all over Ohio and elsewhere years ago for various purposes,” states John Kellis, Executive Director with the Ohio Valley RC&D Council. “We now know these dams have a negative impact on natural stream systems and can impair water quality behind these structures. Many communities are opting to remove them,” Kellis adds. Ohio EPA has studied Solomon Run and determined that the low-head dam obstructs the stream’s natural flow, which is harmful to native fish, mussels and other stream species. The dam creates a large, stagnate pool of water upstream and causes an unnatural build-up of sediment behind the structure. The dam also presents a potential public hazard, as those who attempt to boat, fish or play near the dam risk serious injury. After the dam and accumulated sediments are removed, natural channel design will be used to restore the final channel. Natural stream features, such as riffles and pools,
will mimic the natural conditions upstream and downstream of the restoration site. The adjacent floodplain and valley zones will be reshaped and planted with native grasses, shrubs and trees. “Upon this project’s completion, Solomon Run will once again be a natural, free flowing stream,” states Kellis. “The Ursulines’ commitment to environmental stewardship will serve as an example to other communities for years to come,” Kellis adds. Funding for the Solomon Run Project is being provided by the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Nonpoint Source Pollution Control Program, Section 319 Grants. Ohio EPA awards 319 grants to local organizations/agencies to implement projects designed to restore impaired streams. Project partners include the Ursulines of Brown County, Ohio EPA, Burgess and Niple, Ohio Valley RC&D Council, Brown Soil & Water Conservation District, Clermont Soil & Water Conservation District and the East Fork Watershed Collaborative. The Solomon Run Dam Removal Open House Forum is open to the public and all are invited to attend. To learn more about the Solomon Run Project, visit: http://www.clermontswcd.org/Solomon.as px

OPINION Enrolling for a new health plan CONTINUED FROM PAGE 4 CHECK PREMIUMS WILL BE 16 PERCENT LOWER THAN ORIGINALLY EXPECTED Ohioans to Have on Average 46 Health Plans in New Marketplace The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) released a report that health care premiums across the country will be 16 percent lower than originally expected and that Ohio consumers will have an average of 46 health plans to choose from in the new marketplace beginning October 1. Following release of the report, U.S. Sen. Sherrod
Brown (D-OH) offered the following statement. “This is excellent news for Ohio’s citizens and families,” Brown said. “The health law is already benefitting millions of Ohioans and will continue to do so as premiums go down and citizens learn more about their options in the marketplace. No longer will Ohioans have to worry about being an illness or injury away from financially devastating medical bills. Health reform is leveling the playing field by ending lifetime limits on coverage, ending discrimination based on pre-existing conditions, and providing assistance so that low and
medium income citizens can purchase insurance.” Last week, Brown held a news conference call to announce that more than 916,000 Ohioans are eligible to receive financial help in order to secure affordable and accessible health coverage. Brown, who declined Congressional health insurance for nearly two decades—keeping a 1992 campaign promise to decline a health plan until similar coverage is available to all Americans—will enter the marketplace during this fall’s enrollment period. 95 percent of uninsured Americans eligible for the marketplace live in states

In this specific case, it seems that a faction (not a majority) of council and mayor are more worried about appeasing two factions of a conflict rather than properly protecting the citizens of the village first. The agreement does tend to satisfy the parties in dispute but it does absolutely nothing to protect the public from certain punitive damages awards from contractors as well as most assured penalties from the I.R.S. in regard to taxation breaks on the project. These liabilities will be added to every property and homeowners tax bill in the village and will create undue hardship on our citizens. To give the public some idea of these liabilities, the contractor of the construction project, Shinn Brothers, sued the village for breach of contract and asked for $800,000 in damages but offered to settle with the village for $600,000 but the village refused, Shinn Brothers then won their summary judgment against the village and the damages will be accessed in October. The I.R.S. gave tax incentives worth $1.7 million for the water plant project and the government will definitely want reimbursed for these funds. Estimates of potential damages and financial penalties to the property and homeowners could reach as estimated $1.2 million! In court proceedings last week, Brown County Common Pleas Judge Scott Gusweiler alluded to these damages “as being in the hundreds of thousands of dollars” when the addressing the liability of the Shinn Brothers lawsuit only.

Village of Aberdeen is scheduled to receive $600,000 from the Estate of the late Louis Bramel. This agreement, if enacted, would give back 62% of this money to the bondholder (Annette Mineer). The village is in desperate need of this money, we need a new city building, we need to repair or build a new water tower. There so many positive things we could do with this money but the mayor and a faction of council want to give this away? During court proceedings last week, Brown County Common Pleas Judge Scott Gusweiler stated, “the best arbiter of any issue is an election” and I tend agree. I do not believe that any special council meetings should take place until after the November 5th election, thus giving the citizens of the village a chance to vote their preference in regard to whom they elect, thus directing the proper course of action the village needs to take. I will attend all regularly scheduled monthly meetings and the faction of council that supports this agreement will have a second reading at the October regular meeting, with the final reading at the November meeting (after the election). I see no real reason to rush to force this agreement down the throats of an unprotected public! Remember, special meetings of council should be the exception not the norm! If there were proper leadership at the top we should be able to handle all affairs of the village in our regular monthly meetings. A certain faction (Eitel, Phillips, Perraut and Verville) of this council has used continuous special meetings to railroad water and sewage rate hikes and are now trying to force this unfavorable agreement on the same un-
suspecting public. It must be noted that council members Castle, Applegate, and Shotwell did not sign the agreement in question and they also did not vote on any resolution authorizing the mediation that facilitated the agreement in question. Councilmembers Castle, Applegate, and Shotwell supported resuming the project because it simply appears to be the best method available of ending all potential liability, thus properly protecting the taxpayers of Aberdeen. It is my contention, that either the proposed agreement or resumption of construction of the water plant should satisfy the concerns of the bond trustees. The bonds in question are not defaulted until after December 31, 2013 and there is no real reason to rush into anything prematurely. Simply put, the bond trustees want some legal resolution of the problem in general and should be satisfied with either solution. They will get their answer in late November or early December. In closing, I would like to note the irony of something. Several weeks ago four council members (Eitel, Phillips, Perraut and Verville) wrote an editorial, in an outof-state newspaper, that implied that I was nothing more than a mouthpiece for bondholder Annette Mineer and now amazingly they are upset because I won’t be (since I won’t support this agreement)! Don’t worry this Castle’s foundation remains strong and will only fight when it is necessary to protect the citizens of Aberdeen. Respectfully, Jay Castle Member Aberdeen Village Council

imately $400,000. The agreement also calls for the bond money to pay Moodys of Dayton approximately $70,000. Moody’s drilled two wells on Mineers property and has not been paid to date. The company has filed a civil suit against the village for non-payment. The agreement must have the approval of council to be official. An attempt to suspend council rules and approve the agreement that night fell short at the September 16 meeting and the agreement received a first reading. Six special council meetings were scheduled every day but Sunday between Thursday, September 19 and Wednesday, September 25. Each time, Aberdeen Mayor Harry Foxworthy said the purpose of the meetings was “budget and the settlement agreement.” Each day, the meetings were not held because council members Jay Castle, Jerry Applegate and Dr. Matt Shotwell were not present. Council Members Billie Eitel, Jim Parraut and Jason Phillips did attend each of the meetings. Four of six council members are required to be present to conduct a meeting. At press time, no further special meetings had been scheduled. The next regular meeting of the Aberdeen Village Council is set for October 7 at 6:30 p.m. The Ohio Revised Code states that a council can
vote to remove members if they miss two consecutive regular meetings. There is no legal requirement for council members to attend special meetings. Foxworthy had no comment on the lack of a quorum at the special meetings, other than to say that Castle, Applegate and Shotwell were “preventing important village business from being done” by not attending the meetings. Shotwell was recently appointed by Foxworthy to fill the seat of Robert Verville, who resigned for health reasons last month. Regarding his lack of attendance at the special meetings, Shotwell said “I think the special meetings are pushing an agenda I am uncomfortable with, so I’m not attending them.” He said that logical and deliberate decisions were called for because that was in the best interest of the citizens of the village. He added that the current council should carefully consider whether to go against the decision of a previous Aberdeen Council to build a water plant. “Completely ignoring a significant decision like that could be very costly. Before we rush in, we need some concrete answers on costs and other consequences.”, Shotwell said. Castle also said that be thought that caution was necessary regarding the issue. “They are trying to rush something through that doesn’t need to be rushed. As far as I’m concerned,
we can talk about the issue again at the October 7 regular meeting.”, he said Applegate said that he has not attended the meetings because he was out of state. “I told the mayor and council at the last regular meeting that I was going to be out of town. Why we’re having all of the special meetings in a row doesn’t make any sense to me.” Applegate added that he was disturbed by the fact that Foxworthy scheduled six special meetings in seven days. “That shows me that they are trying to rush something through or cram something down peoples throats. Or they are afraid of the election that is coming around the corner that could stop a lot of this.” Four council seats are at stake in Aberdeen during the November 5 election, with eight candidates competing for them. Current council members Castle, Applegate and Phillips are seeking re-election. Fighting to join them are newcomers Rajenna Combess, Phyllis Bishop, Bill Wilson, Robert Meadows and Bradley Cannon, Jr. Current council member Eitel is not seeking re-election. Eitel said she feels that Castle, Applegate and Shotwell are being “childish and irresponsible” by not attending the special meetings. “There are very important issues we have to deal
with right away.”, Eitel said. “Those who are choosing not to attend the meeting are putting the village in jeopardy. Boycotting the meetings when business needs to be taken care of is beyond my imagination.” Eitel added that the council members who are not attending are not serving the interests of the citizens that elected them. During a civil hearing last week for a group of Aberdeen residents who are attempting to force construction of a water plant, Aberdeen Village Solicitor David Grimes told Common Pleas Judge Scott Gusweiler that the settlement agreement was drawn up because US Bank, the trustee of the bond funds, was threatening a lawsuit of its own against the village and Mineer because the project was stalled. “They said they would file a federal lawsuit in Minnesota and that the legal bills could approach $250,000.”, Grimes told Gusweiler. US Bank is headquartered in Minnesota. Those against the settlement point to the pending judgement against the village in the lawsuit filed by Shinn Brothers, the company hired to build the water plant. Gusweiler has already ruled in the company’s favor and a trial is set for mid-October to determine damages. Those damages could exceed $500,000.
BCI shares drug dog with MOPD CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 explained. Working with Ridge was a preview of what could happen down the road. The Mt. Orab Police Department is trying to get a K9 Unit of its own. “Our department is well on its way to raising enough money to purchase our own dog. The total cost is around $15,000.”, Dearing said. K9 Units are dogs that are trained specifically to assist police and other lawenforcement personnel in their work. The most common breed is the German Shepherd, but other breeds including Rottweilers, Boxers, Doberman Pinschers, Giant Schnauzers, American Pit Bull terriers and American Staffordshire Terriers are also very popular. Some K9 Units are used for ‘Bark and Hold’ dogs for chasing and holding suspects and others are considered search and rescue dogs (SAR) or detection dogs or explosive-sniffing dogs, while others are used exclusively for detecting illicit substances such as drugs. According to Mt. Orab Police Chief Bryan Mount
the five-day assignment working with the K9 Unit was a huge success. “The K9 Unit was brought to Mt. Orab different days of the week for five weeks and was set up, along with Ptl. Dearing, random places within the village,” Mount explained. “We not only set up on different days of the week, but also at different locations, so no one knew exactly where we would be set up. Because we are not allowed to profile anyone, we looked for specific things that would allow us to stop a vehicle.” Mount said Officer Dearing and the undercover agent from the BCI stopped 18 cars that they suspected could be carrying drugs. “Out of those 18 vehicles we had six drug arrests, because of Ridge, the K9 Unit,” Mount continued. “He was really something to watch in action. We would pull a vehicle over and the dog was told to approach. If he got the slightest hint of drugs, he would immediately stop, sit down and put his nose where the odor was coming from. It was usually from a seam on the car.” Mount continued, “That’s all we needed to do
a search of the vehicle. Without the dog, we could be accused of interfering with their constitutional rights. So that dog was the reason we could search the vehicle.” Chief Mount explained that the last arrests made on Friday was especially disturbing to everyone on the scene of the drug interdiction. “I could hardly believe what I saw,” Mount said. “Ridge identified the presence of drugs on a vehicle that had a man and a woman, with three small children in the back seat. “After searching the vehicle we found narcotics in a can of baby formula. The couple had just come to Mt. Orab to buy the narcotics. Imagine if those children, two of them about a year old, would have gotten in to those drugs. It could have killed them. And those children are symbolic of one of the worst parts of this war we’ve waged on drugs.” Mount went on to say Mt. Orab is fast gaining a reputation of multiple drug busts on a weekly basis. “All these drug busts that are written up in the Brown County Press every week doesn’t imply that the drug problem is worse in Mt.
Orab than other villages,” he added. “It implies that our drug intervention team is doing their job. Our department will do whatever it takes to encourage the drug dealers to move on, because their not going to do their business here.” Mount said one big problem all law enforcement officers face are the changes made by state legislators that make drug possession a 4th or 5th degree felony. “We can’t really do much until the second offense,” Mount said, “but then, they will automatically get three years, getting them off the streets. “We were all very encouraged with making arrests at six out of 18 stops, that’s about 33% of the cars stopped.” Mount stated that his department has raised about $5,000 towards the $15,000 it needs to purchase its own K9 Unit. “The donations continue to come in,” Chief Mount said. “It’s going to be a big step for Mt. Orab when we have a K9 Unit on our department. We will continue our fight against drugs in Mt. Orab, and do whatever it takes to make this village the safest in the county.”
Crosstown Road residents told to raise the height of their mail boxes, or mail delivery will be suspended
CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 “Several customers have already called and we have extended the time to get the mailboxes fixed. “In my conversations with Brown County Engineer Todd Cluxton, he has agreed to raise the gravel level around the mail box posts which should resolve the issue of the distance the box is from the road. “None of the posts will actually have to be replaced, only the height of the box itself, which has to be between 44 and 48 inches tall.” Hawks added that the postal service has the authority to make these changes as they deem necessary. “We are trying to make mail delivery in those areas more efficient and safer for not only the carrier but the
public,” Hawks added. “The gravel around those posts hasn’t been maintained by the previous postmaster prior to coming here to Batavia, and it allowed that additional berm to be poured and replaced in there by the county and moved away from the road. It should not have been allowed, but unfortunately it was and was authorized by the previous postmaster. We’re just trying to protect our employees. This berm problem on Crosstown Road has been an issue for several years.” Hawks said that after talking to the previous postmaster he said he was told that the county has not held up to the agreement to fix the berm. “The previous postmaster told me that he has reached out to the engineers office on several oc-
casions regarding the sinking berm,” Hawks continued, “but they never came back to fix it.” Hawks said the mailboxes were originally moved due to snow plows hitting the mailboxes during the winter months.” Hawks said the mail carriers can no longer use their own vehicles. They are required to use only LLV’s (Long Life Vehicles) provided by the postal service. The LLV’s are more visible to other drivers and the steering wheel is on the right side which makes them safer for the carrier. “The last thing we want to do is put anyone out,” Hawks added, “there are solutions to these issues and we want to help these residents as much as we can.” Hawks admitted that on the U.S. Postal Service
website, the height of the mailbox is required to be between 41 and 45 inches, but those figures were for normal vehicles when carriers used the own cars, not the LLV’s. “We understand the problem this might cause for some people,” Hawks said, “So we encourage anyone who is having a problem raising their mailboxes by four or five inches to call our office. We can help in most cases. We want to help. I encourage anyone who needs assistance to call ((513) 732-1823 and we’ll do everything we can to help.” Brown County Engineer, Cluxton said his crew would be out on Crosstown Road early next week to begin building up the gravel around the mail box posts.
Here are seven more HealthBits. Remember back when you were a kid and your mom would either put iodine or Merthiolate on a cut? Iodine would sting, Merthiolate didn’t. That’s because iodine had alcohol in it and merthiolate didn’t. You can’t find real Merthiolate on the shelf anymore, that’s because Merthiolate’s active ingredient is mercury. It is no longer on the market because it is very toxic and can have long lasting toxic effects in aquatic environments. You get a cut and pour a little peroxide on it and watch it bubble. Ever wonder what makes it bubble? Hydrogen peroxide is H2O2 or one hydrogen per oxygen. Water is two hydrogens per oxygen (H2O). This means there is plenty of extra oxygen, therefore making the bubbles. Oxygen is actually very hostile to life, even though we need it to live. This free oxygen reacts with the cell walls of any bacteria destroying them. Propranolol (brand name Inderal) was the first betablocker on the market. Beta-blockers have a myriad of uses: high blood pressure, angina (or heart pain), slow down heart rate (treat tachycardia), prevent migraine, and treating tremor to name a few. Beta-blockers work by blocking the action of epinephrine. Epinephrine is the same thing as adrenaline, so beta-blockers slow down the changes your body goes through when you get scared. What do blood and the planet Mars have in common? They both get their red color from iron. When iron combines with oxygen, you get rust which is a

reddish color. This same combination (iron+oxygen) results in blood’s red color, or in the red dust on Mars, or the red clay found in Georgia. That’s why blood is red, but not every animal has red blood. The horseshoe crab actually has blue blood. Unlike most other animals that use iron to transport oxygen through the blood, horseshoe crabs use copper, that’s why their blood is blue. The most common treatment for lice and scabies is permethrin. For humans, it comes in two different strengths a one percent cream rinse for use on the hair for lice and a prescription five percent cream for scabies. Permethrin is harmless to most mammals and birds, except cats. It is also very toxic to fish. Many cats have died because owners used a flea and tick product containing permethrin for dogs on their cat. Ever notice how your cholesterol medicine almost always says to take at night (at least if it’s a statin). That’s because statins interrupt the liver’s production of cholesterol and your body produces more cholesterol at night than it does during the day.

Eastern Brown Cross Country team looking to do well at districts BY Sabrina Mignerey The Brown County Press The Eastern Brown Cross Country team recently competed at a meet at New Richmond. Eastern’s top male finisher was senior Lane Pickerill, who finished fourth overall even while losing one of his shoes during the course with a time of 19:07.67. The top female finisher for Eastern was junior Alyssa Taylor with a time of 22:33.28. The course was a very muddy, treacherous one making it tough for the runners.
When Eastern Head Coach Tom Glasscock was asked about his team and the season, he said, “We are a work in progress, but we do the best we possibly can.” Glasscock feels that one of the strengths the team possesses is the intense amount of training and dedication they put in. They do a lot of speed work and the team is devoted to becoming the best they possibly can. When asked what he was looking forward to for his team he replied, “Advancing as far as we
can, we would like to do well at league meets but it is not everything, to do the best we can as a team.” Eastern hopes to make it to the State level meet, Nov. 2 in Columbus. The team is looking forward to Districts on Oct. 19 at Rio Grande and would like to achieve the goal they set for themselves as a team, to advance as far as they possibly can. The top 16 finishers from the District meet will go to Regionals the following week at Pickerington, which is a
qualifier for the State meet. The next League meet for the Warriors is Oct. 12 as Ripley High School. Other top male times were; Jordan Kattine, Georgetown: 19:31.00, Josh Deaton, RULH: 20.54.90, Andrew Kings, Fayetteville-Perry: 24.01.78 The top female times were; Kelsey Miller, Georgetown: 23:49.09, Riley Clayton, Fayetteville: 24:18:86, Stacey White, RULH: 25:45.99

Western Brown senior quarterback Devin Wood, shown here against New Richmond, was able to throw for 96 yards despite the heavy rain.
WB Broncos top New Richmond by three Even though their heavy passing attack was subdued by the downpouring of rain, the Western Brown Broncos were able to find a way to win against the New Richmond Lions -- who were 3-0 going into the game on Sept. 20. The Broncos won 2017. “We were trying to carry last week’s momentum forward, and trying to beat another undefeated team,” senior defensive back Justin Longbottom said. The Broncos offense relied on the arm of senior quarterback Devyn Wood and his ability to spread the ball around to move down the field and score points. During the 3-0 start to the season, Wood threw the ball 128 times, resulting in 1378 yards and 14 touchdowns. The Broncos had 24 rushing attempts, 107 rushing yards with four touchdowns in the first three games. “Our run game improved throughout the whole game, and I was impressed with our running backs,” Western Brown Head Coach Evan Dreyer said. “They did a great job helping us.” The Western Brown backs combined for 149 yards and three touchdowns. Junior Nick Osborne had 63 yards and one touchdown, sophomore Eean Hornung ran for 39 yards and one touchdown, and junior Josh Young added 10 yards and the third touchdown. It was the first time the Bronco running backs gained over 100 yards, but Dreyer says the team won’t leave the passing game behind. “The biggest thing is, we are who we are,” Dreyer said. “We tried to throw it Friday night and we still did, around 26 passes in that rain. We’re still going to throw the ball and run as well. We will take what the defense gives us.” “Running the ball in the weather with some success got us excited,” Dreyer said. While the Broncos found footing on the slick turf to run the ball,
the defense helped give them their fourth win. Longbottom had one interception, as did junior cornerback Logan Nuhn. “We played extremely well with our footing and being able to tackle, which was hard in that rain,” Dreyer said. Stopping the run was a big winning factor as well. The previous game against the Ross Rams helped the Broncos prepare for New Richmond’s running backs. “After Ross, they took it upon themselves to prepare a little bit more and focus on making sure there were 11 guys to the ball and were always attacking,” Dreyer said. “Our pursuit to the football really helped us.” Longbottom said that the game against Ross was a “gutcheck”. Senior linebacker Derrick McIntosh said “We already knew they were going to run the ball at us, when it was pouring down rain we knew for sure it was going to be a run basically every time. The season keeps moving for the Broncos. After Western Brown travels to Greenville, they will start league play again and Dreyer said he can’t wait for that. The Broncos are ranked first in the Southern Buckeye Athletic/Academic Conference in the American Division, by being 1-0 in the conference. “It’s exciting for our guys to take a business trip up to Greenville, but after that we’re back to the league,” Dreyer said. “This group does a great job of working and being a team. Right now its a great feeling knowing the kids are playing well and working hard. We can still always improve [though]. There were a lot of runs where we missed key blocks and had little mistakes on. We’re going to keep improving in that area for the future, and progress each week.

The Fayetteville Rockets run out to the field before their game with Williamsburg, which they lost 41-6 on Sept. 13. The Rockets bounced back though, by beating Miami Valley Christian Academy 16-6 on Sept. 20.
Off to a good start, each week will be a challenge for Rockets BY Brandon Barb The Brown County Press The Fayetteville-Perry football team began this season on a good foot. They beat Clermont Northeastern 20-12 and came back against Bethel Tate to win 26-14. It was the best start yet for the program, which is in its fourth year, so confidence was high as the Rockets traveled to Williamsburg Sept. 13. However, the boys in green lost to the Wildcats 41-6, and the Rockets’ momentum was slowed a little bit. But during the heavy rain on Sept. 20, Fayetteville was able to get back on the winning track against Miami Valley Christian Academy with a final score of 16-6. “It was important for us,” Fayetteville Head Coach Nathan Geers said. “We realized we had a lot of mistakes we needed to correct and we had a great week of practice, and preparation for the game.” Against Williamsburg, Fayetteville only had 71 total yards compared to the Wildcats’ 513 but the Rockets didn’t dwell too long on their first loss. Geers said the seniors helped the rest of the team get back on the right track. “They understood what we needed to do and they got it done for us.” The rain was a problem for most high school teams, but it didn’t faze the Rocket run game very much. “We knew ball security was going to be the most important thing, and we
did a great of that,” Geers said. So far this season it has been dry weather for Fayetteville, giving the players little opportunity to practice in the rain and mud. “That was kind of the first opportunity for us to be in wet conditions, but I thought we handled it pretty well,” Geers said. “We didn’t let it affect our mentality. And being a running team helped us. It made it a lot easier, and worked to our advantage. I was proud of how the guys reacted to the rain. Its easy to cave in and use it as an excuse.” The team was “stagnant” during the first three quarters, but things picked up for Fayetteville in the fourth. “We just wore them down,” Geers said. “Our conditioning and dedication to the weight room paid off. The big moments came in the off season, when we put in the hard work.” Late in the fourth quarter, the Rockets created a fumble which lead to a Fayetteville touchdown. “Jacob Laney had a great game running the football, and on defense as well,” Geers said. “he was able to get a couple touchdowns which were important [with the conditions].” The success of the running game is thanks to the offensive line as well, according to Geers. “Nata Allen cleared the way for Laney the whole way. He did a great job of opening up holes for
him,” Geers said. Moving forward, the Rockets aren’t going to sleep on their early success. “We aren’t satisfied with where we are at,” Geers said. “We are happy with our record, we went out there and earned it, but by no means are we satisfied.” Geers continued, “We know what we’re capable of and every time we walk onto that field we think we are the best team out there. We’re feeling good where we are at, but we know we need to improve. Our success has come from a new found confidence, and the players have bought into our one team, one belief mentality. It shows on the football field.” That success comes from the senior players who are pushing the team in the right direction. “From guys like Nate, Andrew Dowers, Trevor
O D D
Koch and Jacob, and those senior guys who have been through three seasons are leading us in a direction we want to be in,” Geers said. “Its because of those guys that we are off to such a good start.” Some improvements Geers would like to see are in the passing game so they don’t become a one dimensional team. Geers has talent within the passing game, and he would like to utilize it as the season progresses. Geers said he expects the rest of the season is going to be a challenge for Fayetteville. “We understand that every team we play is going to be a challenging game for us,” Geers said. “But we know that if we go out there and execute the game plan, we should win. Each week will be challenging, but we try not to look ahead and focus on the task at hand.”

WB tennis wins the league, moving on to sectionals
Brandon Barb/THE BROWN COUNTY PRESS
The Eastern junior varsity team prepared to send the ball over against Peebles. The varsity team is ranked third in the SHAC Division I.
BY Brandon Barb The Brown County Press With only a handful of matches left in the season, the Eastern volleyball team is set to finish the year out strong. The Lady Warriors are ranked third in the Southern Hills Athletic Conference in Division I, behind North Adams and Peebles. “We’re playing well right now,” Eastern Head Coach Carmela Reeves said. “There are a couple of strong teams in the league but we are holding our own.” Overall the Warriors’ record is 10-7, and 4-4 in conference play. Throughout the season, the Eastern girls have gone through some ups and downs. They started off going 2-4 in the month of August, with wins sprinkled in here and there since then. But on Sept. 12 they went on a five game winning streak that
ended Sept. 17. “The team is very solid,” Reeves said. “Our offense is doing good and has been very strong [this season].” Reeves attributes the team’s strong season to the leadership of three players; senior setter Carina Reeves, junior middle hitter Angela Cox and junior middle hitter Shelby Cowdrey. “They’ve done a nice job this season and have helped anchor the team,” Reeves said. Carina Reeves reached a milestone for her high school career by getting her 500th assist last week. “I didn’t know I close to it until the game was stopped,” Carina said. “It feels great to have accomplished that, but its humbling. I couldn’t have done it without my teammates.” There are still five games left but Coach Reeves believes they can
stay in that third spot. “We can solidify our third spot with the best scenario being Peebles beating North Adams and then we move up to second,” she said. North Adams is also the last game on the schedule for Eastern, and it is going to be a challenge for the Lady Warriors. The two teams played each other on Sept. 10 at Eastern, with North Adams winning in four games; 25-23, 18-25, 25-14, 25-10. “They have some big hitters and we want to tighten up our defense and be [more] prepared this time,” Reeves said. The Lady Warriors begin the last stretch of the season against Whiteoak at home on Monday.

Western Brown junior Morgan Fischer beat New Richmond senior Megan Woolum in two sets 6-1, 6-1 Sept. 24, and helped the Lady Broncos clinch the league title.
BY Brandon Barb The Brown County Press The Western Brown tennis team clinched and won the South Buckeye Athletic/Academic Conference, American Division, Sept. 24 after defeating New Richmond 3 games to 2 on September 24. Western Brown junior Morgan Fischer beat New Richmond senior Megan Woolum 6-1, 6-1. Junior Bronco Hannah Keller won 6-0, 6-0 over freshman Lion Taylor Cardarelli. New Richmond freshman Krista Reid beat Western Brown sophomore Kimberly Massey 4-6, 6-4, 6-4. Bronco doubles pair Emily Barber and Lindsey Harvey won 6-2, 6-3 over New Richmond pair Laura Painter and Lily Cahall. The second New Richmond win came from junior Lexi Jump and sophomore Brooklyn Klein beat Western Brown’s Christina Taylor and Kasi Boyd. The Broncos are undefeated in the league, with an overall record of 14-4. “We lost to some really strong teams, which was a good reminder that we aren’t where we want to be yet,” Western Brown Head Coach Max Vavilov said. “I
didn’t predict that we would be undefeated in the league, but its nice.” Their losses came from Colerain, Blanchester, Xenia and Kings -- all within a four game stretch from Aug. 28 to Sept. 4. But the Lady Broncos have won every game since then. “We’re using that as something we strive to be. We don’t want to settle for just good,we want to compete at sectionals,” Vavilov said. Sectionals are on Oct. 2 at Mason High School. “Some of the girls have made it to the second or third round (at sectionals) but they are playing against the top teams in the city and state, so competition is a lot higher,” Vavilov said. “That’s why we made sure to schedule tough teams out of the league to prepare.” A concern Vavilov had at the beginning of the season was how young and inexperienced the team was. “They did an excellent job,” Vavilov said. “Everyone improved. I was able to rotate some girls at second doubles and know that they were going to do alright. The older players have done really well, especially with the leadership role and helping some of the girls
who have never played before.” Vavilov continued, “I’ve been impressed with not only how they’ve improved but how they have helped the other girls get to the next level.” Though the team has improved throughout the season, and has been successful in the majority of their matches, Vavilov didn’t want to say one player has done better than another. “There is something to say about every single player,” he said. “As a team, we’ve improved and done a lot better than I thought we would have, with being a young team. Credit goes to every single player for that and not any individual person.” To prepare for sectionals, Vavilov is focusing on basics and keep the girls calm. “Other teams are improving as well so we can’t take that for granted,” Vavilov said. “What happens and how we do depends on the readiness, our level of preparation and who we play.”

Fayetteville junior Carly Burroughs blocked a shot against Williamsburg Aug. 28. The Lady Rockets are sitting in the first spot in the SHAC, Division II.

Brandon Barb/THE BROWN COUNTY PRESS
Before the Brown County schools took the week off for the fair, the Fayetteville-Perry volleyball team was ranked first in the Southern Hills Athletic Conference in Division II. Their overall record is 12-2, and 6-2 within the conference. The games before the break were a bit tough for the Lady Rockets. During the Sept. 16 game against Peebles, Fayetteville junior Carly Burroughs hyperextended her thumb on a block and had to be taken out. During that time, the game’s momentum shifted away from the Rockets. But Carly wanted back into the game, so her thumb was taped up and she was sent back out on the court to hit one handed. “Her strong presence was missed, but we played well when she wasn’t out there though,” Fayetteville Head Coach Sharon Sheets said. Burroughs had nine kills, six and four blocks against Peebles. Even though the girls
lost against Peebles, they bounced back by beating Manchester in three games; 25-12, 25-21, 2517. And then they finished left before the break on a high note by beating Ripley-Union in three; 25-7, 25-8, 25-8. Fayetteville senior Claire Carson had 12 kills and two aces during the win against the Ripley Blue Jays. Another Fayetteville senior, Gabby Valentine had 14 aces and eight kills against Ripley. “We are excited about our standings right now,” Fayetteville Head Coach Sharon Sheets said. “We’re undefeated in the small school division, and hopefully we can bring home the league championship.” Which shouldn’t be hard for the lady Rockets. With six games left, four are against teams in the small school division -and Fayetteville has beaten two of those teams. The Rockets beat Whiteoak on Sept. 12 in three games; 25-12, 2522, 25-15. And on Sept. 17 they beat Manchester in three games as well; 25-12, 25-21, 25-17. “If we just do what we
know, attack the ball and finish strong, we should hold on for the championship,” Sheets said. The team Fayetteville hasn’t faced yet is Fairfield Local, and the ladies in green go against the Lions twice in two weeks. Fairfield is ranked fourth in the SHAC Division II, and have a conference record of 0-2. Last year the matches between Fayetteville and Fairfield were split, with each winning one, but Sheets hopes to end the season undefeated and move on to the sectional tournament. For the past two years the lady Rockets have made it to the tournament championship game but they lost both times. “We want to get to districts, and bring home the first sectional win for the school,” Sheets said. “There are nine teams in our sectional and only one winner, so its going to be interesting to see the draw we get.” “We’ve got an excellent team, they want a sectional championship as much as I do.”

7th grade loses two, 8th grade wins two The Western Brown 7th grade football team started the season in dramatic fashion but has dropped its last two games. After the opening win against Goshen, the Broncos have been defeated by Hillsboro and New Richmond. The Bronco offense was unable to capitalize on scoring opportunities and fell to the Indians 20-0 and to the Lions 26-0. They currently are 1-2 overall and 1-1 in the SBAAC. 8th grade wins two in a row..... After their loss to league rival Goshen in week two of the season, the Broncos have notched two wins in a row to stay atop the league standings. First the Broncos held on to win against Williamsburg. With
only 1:57 remaining in the game, and the Wildcats driving, linebacker Eric Altman intercepted a pass and ran 49 yards to seal the win 32-20. Seth Becker connected with Jacob Daniels for a touchdown pass and a two-point conversion while also connecting with Jordan Snyder on a two-point conversion. Becker also ran for two two-point conversions while Zach Stacy rushed for two touchdowns. The Broncos defeated the New Richmond Lions 32-12 to raise their record to 3-1 on the year. After a sluggish 1st half, and a 1612 halftime lead, the Bronco offense scored 16 second half points to close out the game. Defense
ruled the game for the Broncos as they only gave up one touchdown, recorded four turnovers and held the Lions to less than 100 total yards of offense on the night. Jacob Haggerty, Jacob Daniels and Wyatt Fischer all recorded an interception while Brandon Huddleston had one fumble recovery. Offensively Zach Stacy and Seth Becker each ran for a touchdown while Becker connected to Fischer on a touchdown completion. Fischer, Jacob Daniels and Josh Fry each recorded a two-point conversion receptiosn and Becker added one two-point conversion run.
Deer hunters receive more prime hunting time New deer regulations in place for 2013-2014 Several changes to Ohio ’s white-tailed deer hunting regulations take effect when the first deer season begins on Saturday, Sept. 28, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR). New deer hunting regulations implemented by the ODNR Division of Wildlife include extended hunting hours during gun and muzzleloader seasons, county bag limits, changes to deer permit use and an antlerless-only muzzleloader season. “This year we were able to add 30 minutes of prime hunting time after sunset to every day of the deer gun and muzzleloader hunting seasons,” said ODNR Director James Zehringer. “ Ohio has some of the best hunting opportunities in the country, and this extra half hour is a golden opportunity for hunters to extend their time in the field.” All deer hunters are required to have a valid Ohio hunting license and a valid deer permit. A detailed listing of deer hunting rules is contained in the 2013-14 Ohio Hunting Regulations, available where licenses are sold, or wildohio.com. Ohio ’s 2013-2014 deer
seasons include: • Archery: Sept. 28-Feb. 2, 2014; • Antlerless muzzleloader: Oct 12-13; • Youth gun: Nov. 23-24; • Gun: Dec. 2-8 and • Muzzleloader: Jan 4-7, 2014. Deer hunting hours are 30 minutes before sunrise to 30 minutes past sunset for all deer seasons. This includes gun and muzzleloader seasons. Deer bag limits are now determined by county (see map for bag limits). The statewide bag limit is nine deer, but a hunter cannot exceed a county bag limit. Additional ODNR Division of Wildlife authorized controlled hunting opportunities do not count against statewide or county bag limits. Hunters may harvest only one buck in Ohio , regardless of method of take or location. Antlerless permits will be valid until Dec. 1, the Sunday before the deer-gun season. Only one antlerless permit may be used per county, regardless of the bag limit. Ohio is offering an antlerless deer muzzleloader hunting season Oct. 12-13. It is legal to bowhunt during this weekend, but no bucks may be killed regardless of hunting implement. Archers hunting during the statewide
Getting calves ready for market Recently I wrote about the handling of vaccines and the importance of proper handling if you want the best chance of an effective vaccination. It is too much work, both time and effort, to not pay attention to details when transporting vaccines or at chute side. We purchase vaccines from our local veterinarian or farm supply stores and they provide cold packs for the drive home. Chute side may be where we get most careless. If working livestock on a 75 degree day (or even hotter) keeping the vaccine outside of a cooler is probably not a good idea. This is especially true if you have a 50 dose bottle and treating 50 calves. Unless you can work them faster than I can the vaccine is probably not maintaining the proper temperature throughout the entire time. The time becomes even more stretched out if you are doing multiple jobs like applying castrating, applying something to control parasites, and who knows what else. This could be even more of an issue if you are treating less than 50 calves and plan to use the remaining doses at a later date. So, bottom line, take a cooler with you chute side. OK, hopefully I have explained the importance of taking care of the vaccine in the bottle, but it doesn’t do muc h good in the bottle. You have to administer it to the animal. Calves are simply worth too much money to not take the time to protect them. No vaccine is a 100% guarantee, but your odds of keeping calves healthy, and alive, increase dramatically with a good
DAVID DUGAN OSU EXTENSION SERVING ADAMS, BROWN AND HIGHLAND CO. vaccination program. Contact your local veterinarian for what might be the best protocol and program for your operation and herd. Here are a few ideas to discuss about herd health and increasing the value of your livestock. The first thing to keep in mind is PREVENTION. It is much easier to deal with prevention than fighting an outbreak. So don’t wait. Weaning is a very stressful time, so waiting until weaning to do things may not be best for the calves. Blackleg and pinkeye can become a very costly problem months before normal weaning. Dehorning and castration is less of an issue on younger animals. The older they get the greater the stress and risk. Read the label for proper dosage, but also keep in mind that in most cases a booster is also part of the recommended program. The protection without the booster may not meet your expectations. With this said working calves once they get to be 3 months of age or so may be a good start for some vaccines, while others may be a little earlier, and some even later. If pinkeye or scours has been an issue in the past, the best time to start the vaccination program to protect the calves might be a few months before they are born. By giving the mothers a shot and booster, you may be able to provide protection to the
newborn with passive immunity. Again discuss all of this with your local veterinarian. Weaned calves are starting to show more and more value added at local markets. Keep in mind, just because you weaned them, and followed protocol does not mean you will top the market or even out sell your neighbor’s unweaned calves that same day. Better cattle are still worth more. Better weaned cattle would be worth even more. So, if your weaned calves did not top the market, they may still have brought more because they were weaned. When it comes to weaning calves there are some things to consider. Using a wormer or something to control parasites, making sure they are dehorned and castrated prior to taking them away from their mothers, giving a first vaccine for respiratory diseases. This can be administered a few weeks prior to weaning, but most veterinarians that I have talked to recommend using a killed virus at this point. Then give the booster once the calves are weaned. This can be a killed or live virus. TALK TO YOUR VETERINARIN prior to doing this program. It is also a good idea to talk to the manager of the stockyards about this. They can help market your calves, not just sell them. Remember, bigger groups also are added value so if it is possible to sell a group of cattle that are same sex and size. It i s worth the time and effort to sort them before loading the first 10 or 15 that you can get in the barn and on the trailer.
gun, youth gun and muzzleloader seasons must meet the hunter orange requirement. A new tagging procedure administered by the ODNR Division of Wildlife requires hunters to make their own game tag to attach to a deer. Game tags can be made of any material (cardboard, plastic, paper, etc.) as long as it contains the hunter’s name, date, time and county of the kill. Go to the Deer Hunting Resources page at wildohio.com for more information on changes to the game check process. All hunters must report their deer harvest using the automated game-check system. Hunters have three options to complete the game check: • Online at ohiogame check.com; • Call 877-TAG-ITOH (824-4864); • Visit a license agent. A list of agents can be found at wildohio.com or by calling 800-WILDLIFE. Game-check transactions are available online and by seven days a week, including holidays. Landowners exempt from purchasing a deer permit, and other people not required to purchase a deer permit, cannot use the 877TAG-ITOH option. Visit the ODNR website at ohiodnr.gov.

RED OAK NEWS
MARY HOWLETTE would like to do one of her baby picture. While we talked on the telephone I found a place on the internet that makes the pattern and names the colors, www.myphotostitch! The graduation pattern was 12 holes to an inch! That is a long way from my patience level. *** This week as you go in the front gate of the Brown County Fair look over to the left and see the decoration under the welcome sign. This is a project by the Russellville Firecracker's 4-H Club a co-operative project led by Lisa Shelton Salisbury. A little known fact about Lisa is that she is a very accomplished artist in oil and watercolors and an with ink and pencil. *** Actually, this week I sort-of visited three churches, but only attended two. Beebe Chapel CME celebrated their 120th year with this 2013 Homecoming!!! Wow! And Congratulations!!!! Speaking at the ceremony was Reverend Charles Williams, Jr. pastor of First Baptist Church of Ripley located on Third St. What a great time! Also, a great time was that I arrived just for service just early enough to have lunch with my friends, Lily, Debra, Barb, Jeff and Harriet. So cool!!!! Many blessings to my new great niece, Mya Nicole and her family.
*** Red Oak Church is unique in that it does not have a pastor on staff. However, each week the pulpit is filled with the Word from the Lord from very accomplished ministers. Here is the rundown for the next few weeks. Come, you are invited each Sunday morning at 10am. September 29, 2013 - Ken Spielvogel, October 6, 2013 - Barbara Jean Havens (Communion), October 13, 2013 - Ken Spielvogel, October 20, 2013 - Ronnie Moffett, October 27, 2013 - Lisa Corum Fox. *** It is with a mixture of great sadness and great joy that I write about the daughter of Red Oak Presbyterian Church. After 200 years of Presbyterian worship services in the Manchester Presbyterian Church the congregation will no longer be considered Presbyterian. However, it is with great joy to know that the work of the Lord continues as New Beginnings Church will begin holding services there on October 6. Praise the Lord!!! *** A Celebration of the Life of the Manchester Presbyterian Church will be Sunday, September 29. Sunday school begins at 9:30 a.m. and church services begin at 10:30 a.m. After services will be a time of fellowship. You are invited, especially if you have a memory to share. Come and congratulate the faithful for their service through the years, and let them know that you appreciate their works and their service to our Lord.

Bonnie, my new friend Ilena/Sunshine, and I went especially to receive a lesson on paper quilting. How pleasant it was to be in the room with so much talent! Among the group was Jan Holbrook, who I did not know until she introduced herself as the daughter of Reverend Melvin Peterson, who often spoke at the Red Oak Presbyterian Church. Later that day, at Sunshine’s house she showed Bonnie and me a crossstitch portrait of her high school graduation picture. Oh My Lands! I truly believe that this was one of the finest works of art that I have ever seen-and yes, it is on my facebook page-the one with the scenery as the profile picture. Sunshine said that she
Can it really be autumn? BY Faye Mahaffey Master Gardner Volunteer As we trimmed tomato plants and weeded strawberries at the Ohio Veterans Home in Georgetown recently, the conversation soon turned to how our gardens produced this season and what we hoped to plant next year. We took time to plant some turnip seeds for Fred Panetta and discovered some potatoes he had missed! Our October visit will probably be spent pulling tomato plants and storing cages for the winter. “What is the large plant along the roadsides that has the showy small white flowers?” was the question of the day. I really hadn’t taken time to walk around our property since returning from the International Master Gardener Conference, so I could only ask for more facts about the plant. Does it have a yellow center? If it does, it might be an aster. The answer to my question was, “No yellow center, just white…and my bees love it!” We talked about the possibility of sending me a photo of the plant and its blooms via email and we all headed home. When I arrived home the bright-white flowers greeted me along the tree line. Have you guessed the name of the plant yet? White Snakeroot, Eupatorium rugosum, a native of North America, is currently naturalized throughout southern Canada and all over the eastern half of the U.S. excluding areas in the extreme south. White snakeroot occurs everywhere in Ohio, but it is rarer in the northwest compared with other parts of the state. White snakeroot is a tall plant with rather showy clusters of small bright-white flowers so it is easy to spot in fields, meadows, thickets, woods, waste places, roadsides, lake edges, stream banks, and other shady areas in which it thrives. White snakeroot is a 3foot-tall perennial herb. Distinctive features include opposite leaves, which are coarsely-toothed at the base, sharply-pointed at the
Provided/THE BROWN COUNTY PRESS
tip, and attached to a long slender leaf stalk (petiole), and flat-topped clusters of small bright-white flowers. Ingesting leaves and stems of the plant produces a deadly condition known as “trembles” in animals, and humans can develop “milk sickness” by consuming milk from affected animals. White snakeroot generally begins to flower in July and continues until
September. The weed does not persist in cultivated areas. Plants should be pulled as soon as they appear or mowed close to the ground several times during the season before seeds form. Improving drainage may also aid in control of the poisonous plant. Dried plants in hay are toxic but not as poisonous as fresh plants. The leaves and stems of white snakeroot plants contain tremetol, which is extremely poisonous. The plant is unpalatable to animals, but they will consume it if other forage is scarce. I was amazed to see all the white blooms along both sides of our property! The weed-eater and I have some serious work ahead of us! If you are interested in learning more and Bees and Honey, plan to attend the October 17 seminar at the Fincastle campus of Southern State Community College. Seminars are free and open to the public and meet in the library from 6 7:30 p.m. See you at the Brown County Fair!

This course will explain how heating and air systems work, how to service a furnace and how to properly size a furnace and air conditioner for efficiency. The class would be excellent for maintenance workers, as well as, homeowners. The course begins Monday, October 7, and be held on Mondays and Wednesdays from 6 to 9 p.m. for ten weeks. Upon successful completion of the course, the Section 608 EPA certification exam will be given. Section 608 of the Federal Clean Air Act requires that all
persons who maintain, service, repair or dispose of appliances that contain regulated refrigerants be certified in proper refrigerant handling techniques. The EPA has also placed a sales restriction on refrigerants, limiting the sale of regulated refrigerants to certified technicians only. Once students successfully pass the exam, they are certified technicians. The Heating and Air course will be held at the Southern Hills Career and Technical Center, 9193 Hamer Rd., Georgetown.
