THE BROWN COUNTY

Steps taken to keep fuel flowing BY Wayne Gates The Brown County Press

Local experts say homeowners who depend on fuel oil or propane should not expect interruptions to the supply this winter, despite the colder temperatures.

of Cincinnati are short of propane products. We are sending drivers as far away as North Carolina to pick up product, so this allows us to keep the propane flowing.” Lykins added that just because his drivers are having to travel longer distances to get propane, it does not mean there is a shortage. “If you look across the country, there is plenty of propane. It’s just not all in the right place right now”, Lykins said. Lykins said a number of factors have combined to CONTINUED ON PAGE 10

Air Care and Mobile Care coming to Mt. Orab BY Martha B. Jacob The Brown County Press The Village of Mt. Orab will soon have a helipad, hangar and offices for Air Care & Mobile Care, part of UC Health University of Cincinnati Medical Center. According to the Mayor of Mt. Orab, Bruce Lunsford, the new 7,000 square foot facility, (2,000 square feet of office space and 5,000 square feet of hangar space) will be located behind the Kroger store and will employ at the least 21 nurses, doctors, pilots and other staff positions.

“This is a great thing for this village, and for that matter, this county,” Lunsford said. “We are so excited about how this venture all came together over the past seven months. Air Care & Mobile Care first contacted our fire chief, Lisa Reeves, and we showed them around our village at some nice spots to build. They wanted to build a helipad east of Cincinnati. They had a place in Union Township at Eastgate, but wanted farther in our direction.” Lunsford said a lot of details had to be worked out because the company has

leased its other helipads and their board of directors didn’t want to approve the purchase and construction of a new building. “So, after working with the Mt. Orab Port Authority, we came up with a proposition for Air Care & Mobile Care which they accepted,” Lunsford added. “The Port Authority will build the facility, then lease it to them for 15 years. After that 15 years they will have the option to renew their lease or purchase the facility outright. It’s a winwin for everyone.” The UC Health Air Care CONTINUED ON PAGE 10

Local educators discuss Common Core Standards BY Martha B. Jacob The Brown County Press As many as 45 states, including Ohio, and the District of Columbia are now prepared to implement the Common Core State Standards Initiative which began in 2010. The Common Core State Standards initiative is a state-wide effort that establishes a single set of clear educational standards for kindergarten through 12th grade in English language arts and Mathematics. Ohio’s state board of education adopted the plan in June 2010 with plans to launch the initiative during the 2014-2015 school year. However, Ohio State Representative Andy Thompson of Marrietta,, along with 13 other representatives introduced

House Bill 237 in June 2013, which would repeal and prohibit the adoption of the Common Core Standards as the state’s academic content standards for English language arts and mathematics. It would also void any prior actions taken to adopt or implement the Common Core. The Initiative is being led by governors and education commissioners through their representative organizations, the National Governors Association and the Council of Chief State School Officers. Teachers, parents, school administrators and experts from across the country together with state leaders provided input into the development of the standards. The Common Core plans on developing text-

books, digital media and other teaching materials aligned to the standards. It would also develop and implement an assessment system to measure student performance annually that would replace existing state testing systems, and it would change the way educators and schools receive support in implementing the new standards. It would also place more education control in the hands of the state instead of each individual district. HB 237 has now had its first and second hearing in the House. According to RipleyUnion-Lewis-Huntington School District Superintendent Linda Naylor, she believes the purpose for becoming involved in the Common Core Initiative

The record cold in the midwest has caused some disruption to the fuel oil and propane supply. However, steps are being taken to ensure that everyone who uses fuel oil or propane for heat can stay warm. On January 18, Ohio Governor John Kasich declared a State of Energy Emergency which lifts the restrictions placed on drivers who deliver fuel oil and propane. Normally, drivers are limited in the number of

hours they can work in a day or week, and in how many miles they are allowed to drive per day. Jeff Lykins, President and CEO of Lykins Oil in Milford, said the action by the Governor allows companies like his to step up their intensity during extremely cold weather. “It will allow us to do more deliveries during the day so we can take care of our customers”, Lykins said. “As important, it will allow us to run our large trucks longer. That’s key because most of the terminals within a hundred miles

Barbara Kiley, clerk for the Fayetteville Village Council updated members on the state of the finances for the village. Council members were given a copy of the end of the year (2013) financial statement which was later approved. “In the general fund for the village we’ve had $5,886 worth bills so far,” Kiley said. “It brought our balance down to $14,096. “Our next allocation to the village will be the first of March or it could be the last of February, and I’m happy to say we’re going to make it through February.” Kiley told council that the village has received $4,000 from Time/Warner, and in the next three months it should receive $1,200 monthly distribution all together, and will collect possibly as much as

$6,000 in fines. “Part of that money will go to the police department,” she said. “This balance does not include the anticipated $12,000 rent from the water department. But it does include the interest off the CD’s owned by the village.” Mayor Bernie Vilvens told council that things were looking better but that they needed to watch funds closely and review the budget at every meeting. Mayor Vilvens opened the meeting earlier with the swearing-in of three of four council members into office including Frank South, Harriet Kleemeyer and Joe Huber. Tina Houk was absent from the meeting but will be sworn in at the next meeting. Mayor Vilvens informed council that Duke Energy would be replacing an electric pole in the center of town and that the village was responsible for removing the old lines and replacing all new lines. He added that the village would have to contact an electrician to do the work. Vilvens added that the pole lines operate the traffic signal, and he had no idea what it would cost the village. He said he might hold off on giving Duke approval until he could find out how much it would cost and how it would effect the budget. Council agreed to table the issue. Kiley told council that

she was still working on updating ordinances for the village and would be returning the county ledger to Village Solicitor Celia Potts to be placed back in the law library. Council passed an ordinance to adopt the Anderson Code Handbook for 2014. The handbook cost about $800 and the last one the village purchased was from Mt. Orab. Kiley said she would contact the Mt. Orab mayor about a new copy for 2014. Fayetteville Police Officer Edward Schmidt gave a report to council in the absence of Police Chief Randy Carson. Schmidt said there had been several reports of thefts on East Street including chain saws, tools and a wood splitter. All the items were taken from multiple out-buildings. There had also been reports of items stolen out of unlocked cars. He highly recommended

Senator Joe Uecker (R–Miami Township) recently was named the 2013 Legislator of the Year by Technology for Ohio’s Tomorrow. Uecker was chosen for the honor based on his leadership on broadband issues in the state legislature. “It’s an honor to receive this recognition from Technology for Ohio’s Tomorrow,” Sen. Uecker said. “While Ohio is making progress in areas like increased access to Broadband Internet, there is still much to be done.” Uecker recently announced the formation of the bipartisan Broadband and Technology Caucus, which seeks to encourage the expansion of broadband access through legislative involvement in the Ohio General Assembly.

policy dealing with positive behavioral interventions and supports (PBIS) and restraint and seclusion in January This policy is effective for the 2014-2015 school year. PBIS was first introduced in 1997 during the reauthorization of the Individuals with Disabilities Act. It is a framework designed to enhance academic and social behavior outcomes for all students by emphasizing the use of data for informing decisions about the selection, implementation and progress monitoring behavioral practices. “We have several teachers that will be attending special classes relating to PBIS,” said Murphy. “Anything that can help them out with students that have special problems is going to be good for our schools.” The PBIS program has been proven to reduce disciplinary incidents, increase a school’s sense of safety and support im-

proved academic outcomes. PBIS addresses issues su ch as aggressive behavior and bullying, anxiety, disorganization, frustration, lack of participation, lying/cheating, negative attitudes, disruptive behavior and impulsive behavior. In other actions at the meeting the board approved the following items: • approved the fiscal year 2015 tax budget by the Brown County Tax Commission; • approved the investment/financial report; • approved an eighth grade t rip to Washington DC for June 2-5, 2014; • directed the superintendent to post the middle school and high school track positions; • approved membership dues to the Ohio School Boards Association for calendar year 2014 in the amount of $2,944; • set a special meeting for Jan. 24 at 8 a.m. for continuing discussions on the solar power project.

Fair Trade, not free trade

B R O A D S H E E T E V E N

Dear Editor, I made a mistake, along with President Clinton, although I believe he may have been hoodwinked, when he gave us the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). It was supposed to help all three countries US, Mexico and Canada. It was said that it would increase the middle class in Mexico. We have seen instead a loss of jobs in Mexico and a peso crisis in 1994. Now that's down there. Here our trade deficits, since NAFTA, have totaled over $8 trillion. We have lost millions of good manufacturing jobs and de-industrialized our economy . Workers have lost bargain-

ing power and wages have stalled. We now see more part-time work and less security. Why has this happened? It happened because we did trade wrong. We should have been seeking FAIR TRADE, not free trade. Also I believe that the process would be done better if more members of Congress would be given a chance to put in what they thought should be in the trade deals. In order to do this we should stop FAST TRACT. I believe that the reason we have gotten so many bad trade deals is because of FAST TRACT. For instance as if NAFTA wasn't enough, look at the loss of jobs since China entered the

World Trade Organization (WTO) in 2001. It cost the economy $37 billion in lost wages in 2011 alone. Our trade deficits with China have displaced large numbers of workers at both the top and the bottom of the educational ladder. Some of the best minority job opportunities in the country were lost by the growing trade deficits with China in the computer and electronic industry between 2001 and 2011. I believe we all should contact our representatives in Congress to have them stop FAST TRACT. And remember it's FAIR TRADE we want not free trade. Danny Books Sr.

Dear Editor, January is Cervical Cancer Awareness Month. The Jaymie Jamison Foundation for Hope is bringing forward the faces that gynecological cancer has affected. From January 25 to January 31, 2014, The Jaymie Jamison Foundation is introducing their "Traveling Wall of Gynecological Cancer Awareness-Survivors, Fighters, and Angels" at Eastgate Mall. The wall will be set up in the center of the mall. Included on the wall will be faces of the women affected by gynecological cancers and the signs and symptoms. Come see the wall, and educate yourself about the signs and symptoms as early detection is key to saving your life. Cervical cancer is cancer that forms in tissues of the cervix. This type of cancer may have no symptoms but can be found with a Pap smear. Cervical Cancer is almost always caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV). In 2013, 12,340 women were diagnosed with cervical cancer in the United States, and 4,030 lost their

lives. Most cases are found in women younger than 50. Risk factors for cervical cancer include HPV, smoking, diet that lacks fruits and vegetables, long term use of oral contraceptives, multiple full-term pregnancies, young age at the first full-term pregnancy, and family history of cervical cancer. Since the most common form of cervical cancer begins with pre-cancerous changes there are ways to prevent this disease from developing. The first is to find and treat pre-cancers and the second is to prevent precancers. All women should begin cervical cancer screenings yearly at age 18, having a Pap smear yearly. If you have an abnormal test results women need to follow up with their doctors and not miss an appointment or a follow-up appointment, get the HPV vaccine, limit your sexual partners and use condoms to protect against HPV, do not smoke. Signs and symptoms include; unusual bleeding or change in your menstrual cycle that you can't explain, bleeding after intercourse, pain during

intercourse, unusual vaginal discharge, unexplained weight loss, fatigue, pelvic, leg or back pain. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms contact your doctor immediately. If you haven't had a gynecological screening with your doctor please schedule one immediately, as it may save your life. During the month of January the Jaymie Jamison Foundation for Hope has been sharing women's personal stories of their battle with cervical cancer. Please visit their website www.jaymiejamisonfoundation.org and read these stories under the Blog tab. Cervical cancer doesn't discriminate and you are never too young to get this disease. Educate yourself and your young daughters. It may save a life. Best Regards, Shannon Helton Sponsorship Coordinator Jaymie Jamison Foundation for Hope www.jaymiejamison foundation.org

2013 traffic fatality update According to the Ohio Department of Public Safety’s Crash Statistics database, Brown County had six fatal crashes resulting in seven deaths during the 2013 calendar year. In comparison, we had only four fatal crashes responsible for five deaths for the 2012 calendar year. Although one of these crashes occurred more due to a freak of nature than anything else, the majority occurred due to some type of driver error, two were alcohol-related, and four involved older (“mature”) drivers. On a positive note, our injury and property damage-only crashes, as well as our total number of crashes, are down this

And as previously reported, another big positive is that our county seat belt use rate increased to its highest level of the last three or four years (84.5%) following the 2013 Memorial Day “Click It Or Ticket” campaign. The other good news? At this point in time, it looks like the state of Ohio’s total number of 2013 traffic deaths was less than 1,000 deaths, which is the first time our

Remember--your buckled seat belt is THE #1 defense against death and serious injury in most traffic crashes. So buckle up for every ride no matter how short of a ride or drive you take. If you’re not buckled up, What’s Holding You Back??? Don’t drink and then drive, and don’t drive when you’re drowsy. Finally, distracted driving is becoming one of the top concerns for road safety. Put down that cell phone when you’re behind the wheel, and Stay Alive-Don’t Text and Drive! Let’s all keep working together to prevent traffic deaths in Brown County in 2014. We owe it to ourselves, our kids and other loved ones, and our community! The “Safe Communities” Program was developed through the Ohio Department of Public Safety to establish and/or expand community partnerships to create safer, healthier communities throughout Ohio. The Brown County Safe Communities Coalition is a group of individuals and agencies dedicated to reducing traffic crash-related deaths and serious injuries. It is funded by USDOT/NHTSA and ODPS/Ohio State Highway Patrol-Ohio Traffic Safety Office and administered locally by the University of Cincinnati Area Health Education Center Program and HEALTHUC. HEALTH-UC’s office is located at 114 East State Street in Georgetown, OH.

Touch Me Not In Matthew 28 we have a description of the resurrection. Each of the Gospels has a little different view that we would not otherwise see. There are no contradictions but one Gospel might give a little bit more detail than another so that we can get a better view of what took place. There was so much involved that John said in John 21:25: “And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written. Amen.” Well, Matthew 28:1 begins: “In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week...” The sabbath was over, the first day of the week was dawning, (which would be Sunday) and along came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre. Verse 2: “And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it.” Now, can you just picture the angel sitting on that stone? And remember, there had just been a great earthquake. What must have been running through the minds of these women! Here is the angel of the Lord Jesus sitting on the stone speaking to them! Verse 3 tells us: “ His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow:” This wasn’t a vision; they were actually seeing and talking to him. They asked where Jesus was and in verses 5-7 it states: “And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified. He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay. And go quickly, and tell his disciples that he is risen from the dead...” Verse 9: “And as they went to tell his disciples, behold, Jesus met them, saying, All hail. And they came and held him by the feet, and worshipped him.” Can you picture it? Now compare this with John chapter 20 and verse 17: “Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God.” This had been prior

to Matthew 28:9 but not mentioned in Matthew. Here Jesus had not yet ascended To His Father in heaven. Why was it necessary for Jesus to ascend before they could touch Him? Well, we have the answer in the books of Exodus, Leviticus, and Numbers. We should know the reason why, but, most of the time we do not take the time to reason it out. We are so quick to forget! When the sacrifice of the blood was made in the tabernacle, and the lamb was slain, the high priest must take the blood and enter in through the veil and put the blood on the Ark of the Covenant, on the Mercy Seat. Is that not right? Well think about it; Jesus died on the cross and shed His blood. He was buried in the tomb and then 3 days later He arose. Was the blood ever put on the Mercy Seat? Yes, it was and still is. It had to be. It was part of the law and Jesus fulfilled all the law. He told Mary not to touch Him because He had not yet ascended to His Father. He could not be touched because He could not be defiled before He went as our High Priest into the Holy of Holies in the Temple of heaven (Revelation 11:19) to offer His own blood on the Mercy Seat for our sins! Go back to the Old Testament and check it out! Look at the procedure that had to be carried out according to the law. Jesus did not go into any earthly temple to offer His blood on the Mercy Seat for our sins! He went into the Temple in heaven as our High Priest to offer that precious sacrifice! That is why it is recorded in the book of John that He had not yet ascended while in the book of Matthew it tells us what took place after He came back down and the women were allowed to touch Him. Each bit of information is important in order for us to get the full picture of what actually took place.

Mike and Menallie Slusher, Australia, were guests at Eastern Middle School on January 8, 2014. They shared information about their homeland, Australia. They were visiting the United States over the holidays and gave their time to help students learn more about their country. Menallie shared information about her daily activities and how she is a Senior to be, starting in February when she returns to her country. Mike, a teacher in Australia, helped the student body understand the government process in their country and how it was similar or different from ours. Their topics included Australian's currency, landmarks to see when visiting their country and the geographical outlay of the country. The students were able to see the daily routine of Menallie at school and compare that to our day at Eastern Middle School. It was a wonderful opportunity for our students to see what life was like in another country.

Have you ever wanted to learn more about CAD (Computer Aided Design)? The Southern Hills CTC Adult Education Department is offering classes in the basics of CAD using the latest version of AutoCAD for part generation and construction drawing. CAD is the art of expressing thoughts and ideas in a technical manner. Drawings are provided to develop student

district each and every day. I found the following quote by Anita Roddick that does exactly that. She said, “You have to look at leadership through the eyes of the followers and you have to live the message. What I have learned is that people become motivated when you guide them to the source of their own power and when you make heroes out of employees who personify what you want to see in the organization.” Georgetown, you should be very proud of the 5 elected members who serve you. I can promise you they live by the aforementioned words. When making decisions they always keep the students and staff at the very forefront of their conversations. They are constantly asking me questions as I bring them recommendations ensuring that we keep our eyes focused on building a world-class educational system for the students and our entire Georgetown Exempted Village Schools community. If you have read any of my articles in the past, you know I believe in the power of team and collaboration. At Georgetown Exempted Village Schools we have a great team. From the boardroom to the classroom we have high expectations and value a culture that cultivates respect for and from all. Our vision statement explicitly says, “We want to create a cli-

mate where all students want to learn, all staff members want to work and all parents want to send their children! This all begins with great board members empowering great staff members to empower great students who will transform a great community! If you ever have an opportunity to thank our board members please take the time to do so. They spend many hours formulating policy and making decisions that shape the future of our schools. They all take this responsibility very seriously and do it well. At the end of the day they all have their own vocations that they must keep going as well so they have to trust or empower me to see that their vision is carried out. I am honored and humbled to have the opportunity to carry the torch of Excellence for them on a daily basis.

Great board members empower Empowerment is a word that we often throw around in the educational world. By definition empowerment is to give (someone) the authority or power to do something. This term is the point of emphasis from the Ohio School Board Association for the 2013-14 school year. As we celebrate school board appreciation month throughout Ohio I would be remiss if I did not discuss the power of a school board that believes in empowering its staff. Often times people only hear about school board members when it is election time, levy time or a time of controversy. I am here to tell you they have the most thankless role in the entire educational system. They are elected to serve the community and ultimately to make policy, hire great staff members and dismiss those that are not so great. Seems easy enough, right? Imagine a big decision in your household or in your place of employment. How many people are involved when you make this decision? What is the impact of that decision both for the environment and financially? Will there be winners and losers? Now that you are thinking about a specific situation, whom does the final decision rest upon? I am guessing someone ultimately makes a final decision and that is that. I know in my house

GEVS SUPERINTENDENT

CHRIS BURROWS

my wife, Sarah’s word is final and there is no debating! Now imagine that before any major decision is made you had to take a vote and the majority had to agree before any action could be taken. This is the way a school board works. For better or for worse, the majority of members must look at all relevant information, have discussions and ultimately make a decision that will hopefully fare well for the students of the district. It is not easy to empower people to do work that you are ultimately responsible for. Our board not only empowers us to lead but also works hard to support the work that we do on a daily basis. In that same breath, they are never slow to question or ask for clarification and justification when they feel decisions are not in line with their vision, goals or policies. This is the tough work that you have entrusted them to do and believe me they do it well and they do it with class. When I decided to write this article, I searched for quotes to describe our current board of education and the way they empower the

On December 19, 2013, the seventh graders in Mrs. Kress's English Language Arts classes at Eastern Middle School performed the play A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. Each Language Arts class performed their own play during their blocked class period. After the play, the students enjoyed a Dickens of a Christmas Party where all participated in time period dance and games. This play concludes a Reading/Writing/Researching Unit which included: reading the book A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens, studying various literary elements and devices within the book, keeping a journal, writing comparing and contrasting papers, researching the time period and writing an expository paper. It was an enjoyable unit.

West Clermont school board members sworn in

Lewis, Merchant, Waldmann begin duties BY KRISTIN ROVER Sun staff

Three new board members were sworn into office during the Jan. 13 West Clermont Board of Education meeting. Jim Lewis, Mark Merchant and Steve Waldmann joined the board after being elected Nov. 5. Lewis earned 18.39 percent of the vote, Merchant earned 16.21 percent of the vote and Waldmann earned 17.77 percent of the vote, defeating Sara Heimbold, Jim Rudy, David Schaeff and Denise Smith. According to the district's website, Lewis grew up in Mt. Orab. He has a bachelor of science degree in engineering from the United States Military Academy and a master's degree in business administration

from Temple University. Lewis has experience working with the United States Army, the United States Postal Service, and more. He is a member of the Tea Party, the local GOP, and other organizations. “I have long believed that we need to improve the quality of education in the district and look forward to trying to make that happen,” Lewis said about becoming a board member. He said as a board member he is hoping to accomplish several things including restoring busses at the district, making changes to the curriculum and eliminating common core standards, and finding ways to make the district more financially responsible. Mark Merchant has lived in Union Township for 20 years, according to the dis-

trict's website. He attended the School of Business Administration at Indiana University and served in the United States Army. Merchant is involved in a variety of organizations and activities, including fundraising for the Amelia football team, being involved with the West Clermont Schools Foundation and serving as committee chairman of Boy Scouts of America Troop 867. Steve Waldmann has lived in the district for more than 30 years. He has four children who graduated from Glen Este High School and six grandchildren, according to the district's website. Waldmann currently works as the manager of school business affairs for Kings Local School District.

Eastgate bridge work continues

Traffic will be affected beginning Jan. 21 BY KRISTIN ROVER Sun staff

Construction is ramping back up on Eastgate Boulevard beginning Jan. 20. Clermont County Engineer Pat Manger said construction crews will be working to complete the bridge that take drivers over state Route 32. “The good news is we are ahead of schedule,” Manger said. Manger said they were able to finish the first half of the bridge in time to open up all of the lanes for the holiday shopping season. He said that now that the holidays are over, construction crews are moving forward to complete the bridge project.

“What residents can expect to see is lane restriction north and south on Eastgate Boulevard,” Manger said. Manger said traffic will essentially be pushed to the new side of the bridge to build the other side of the bridge. According to the Ohio Department of Transportation, the lane closures will take place from 9 a.m. - 6 p.m. beginning Jan. 20. There will also be nighttime closures while bridge demolition is taking place from 8 p.m. - 6 a.m. for approximately two weeks. Manger said the construction should be less restrictive than last summer when the work began because they have already added additional lanes in

that area and the new ramps that take drivers from Eastgate Boulevard to state Route 32 are open. “We are happy the ramp on Eastgate Boulevard is open,” Manger said. “Before all of those ramps, everyone had to come and go by Golf Galaxy.” He said Union Township police will be assisting with traffic in the area during the construction. In addition to the Eastgate Boulevard work, construction also continues along SR 32 and near the Interstate 275 interchange. Manger said crews are working to prepare for several projects that will begin in that area later this year. For more information about ongoing construction projects in the Eastgate area, visit www.goclermont.org.

Bulldogs gearing up for exhausting home stretch BY CHRIS CHANEY Sun staff

Beginning the season 5-1, inconsistency has marred a promising start for the Batavia Bulldogs, however an experienced roster still has seven Southern Buckeye Conference games on the schedule and the opportunity to compete for a league title. “I think we’ve given a couple (games) away that we shouldn’t have, that I didn’t expect to,” head coach Mike Hatfield said. “We’ve had some nights where we’ve shot the ball well, but we’ve struggled when we don’t. We haven’t gotten as much out of our defense as I thought we would.” Even still, the Bulldogs are 7-4 overall and 2-1 in the SBC-National, currently in third place, but without the opportunities that their league mates have had with two league games having been postponed due to weather. The effect the winter weather has had on the Bulldogs hasn’t yet yielded any disadvantages, but Hatfield warns that won’t be the case for long. “It’s going to have a really big impact soon,” the coach explained. “Looking at it, we’re going to play Jan. 31, Feb. 1, Feb. 4, Feb. 7, Feb. 8 and two more the next week. “We play our last nine games, (beginning with Williamsburg on Jan. 24) in a really short period of time because of two makeups.” At face value, rescheduling two games doesn’t sound too overwhelming, but trying to match up schedules and off days have put the Bulldogs in a tough spot to end the season. Hatfield said in order to prepare his team for the home stretch, Batavia will cut back on practice time and guys further down the bench will be asked to play in-

creased minutes. As for the guys who are seeing the majority of the minutes, the Bulldogs’ six seniors have provided leadership for Hatfield’s squad, with no one being more important to the team than 5foot-11 shooting guard Austin Sammons. “I think Austin Sammons has been our most consistent player to date,” Hatfield said. “Sammons has been by far our best defensive player. We’ve had a couple games where he’s changed the game by (guarding) their best player, which is really nice. He’s been scoring for us also.” “(Kyle) Schmidtgen has done a good job taking care of the basketball at the point. (Freshman Jacob) McElfresh has been up and down. He’s scored 20, 18. He’s had a few big games and a few where he hasn’t scored any points. It’s just different for him, how physical it is.” Football standout KeShawn Foley has added some physicality for the Bulldogs down low as has Chris Bourque. Batavia has

10 players on their roster averaging at least a bucket a night. With only three games under their SBC belts, the Bulldogs not only have to run a gauntlet to finish the season, but the majority of their remaining games will be played against conference opponents. Trailing league-leading Georgetown by a game and a half and Williamsburg by half of a game, the Bulldogs still control their own destiny if they are able to win out, although Hatfield admits, that is a daunting task. “We have Burg Friday (Jan. 24) and Georgetown next Tuesday (Jan. 28), so those are big games,” he said. “I think we’re as good as anyone. We shot about as bad as we could against CNE (52-42 loss). I’ve seen Georgetown a couple times and I think we certainly have a shot against them. “We made it hard on ourselves because to win the league outright, we have to not lose, which means beating Georgetown twice because I don’t believe anyone else is going to beat them.”

make propane a little harder to find in the midwest. “A lot of farmers use propane to dry their grain and we had a wet fall, so there was a lot of propane use for that”, Lykins said. He added that some companies on the east coast of the United States have been exporting some propane. “Those factors, plus the record cold, caused the infrastructure to not be able to move things where they need to be quick enough”, Lykins said. Currently, Lykins Oil employees are working sixteen hour days to meet the demand. Lykins said drivers are given a safety break after working a shift before com-

ing back in to work more hours. “Those safety breaks allow us to bring them back in and keep going. And because of the bitter cold, we don’t want them out there a long, long time. They’re hitting it pretty hard to keep the fuel flowing to everybody.” Lykins also had a couple of key words for fuel oil and propane customers to remember. “Don’t panic. When it gets cold and people start hearing about it on the news, they want somebody to come out and top off their tank right now. If they are on automatic fill, they won’t run out”, Lykins said. “If they are not on automatic fill with their supplier, they need to give their supplier about 48 hours no-

Air Care and Mobile Care coming to Mt. Orab CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1

& Mobile Care was recently named ‘Program of the Year’ by the Association of Air Medical Services, the top award for rotor wing and ground medical transport programs. The award recognizes one emergency medical program that has exemplified a superior level of patient care, management prowess, quality leadership, customer service, safety consciousness and commitment to the medical transport community as a whole. UC Health Air Care and Mobile Care is comprised of 140 transport specialists from diverse professional backgrounds, Each year the organization transports more than 1,000 patients by helicopter and 10,000 by ground across the Greater Cincinnati area. Local Mt. Orab resident

and nursing officer at UC Medical Center Jen Jackson is also looking forward to the new facility. “Growing up and maintaining close ties to this community makes this opportunity to serve the east side of Cincinnati even more special for me,” Jackson said. “UC Health University of Cincinnati Medical Center is excited to be able to bring our world renowned air and ground medical transport to your community.” Kate Morgan, Business Development and Outreach Coordinator of Air Care and Mobile Care said, “We are happy about this venture, and we plan on having 12 hour shifts to begin with then hopefully have 24 hour coverage eventually. “Our helicopter will be able to pick up and drop off anyone where they need to go that is appropriate for

that patient. The location in Mt. Orab is ideal for us since we will be close to several medical centers. We will receive our calls from hospitals and fire departments. “This Air Care & Mobile Care has provided the Greater Cincinnati area with specialized medical transport services for over 25 years. Now Brown County residents will have these same services.” In addition to providing air transport with a specially trained physician on every flight, Air Care & Mobile Care offer mobile intensive care, advanced life support and basic life support. “Groundbreaking for our new helipad, hangar and office building will be in early March,” Morgan added. “We are looking forward to the new operation.”

They also want to make sure American values continue to be taught and teachers are given the right to practice their own unique crafts. They are also against standardized testing. “These new learning standards, which outline building blocks for students’ learning and their progress,” Naylor continued. “The teachers and administrators at RULH have completed a tremendous amount of work in preparing for the full implementation of these standards in 2014-2015. This work

began during the 20112012 school year when teachers met to study the new learning standards and compare them to their teaching materials.” Naylor continued, “Several adjustments have been made to curriculum, instruction and assessment to meet the requirements of the new standards. Unless this initiative is repealed, here at RULH we will build on these changes to prepare students for college and careers in the 21st century.” For more information on the Common Core State Standards please visit www.corestandards.org.

With these standards as our guide, our graduates should be ready to compete in a global economy.” Currently there is an organization known as ‘Ohioans Against Common Core’ which is a singleissue education advocacy group.

Assisting eligible individuals with Medicare prescription benefits is a service the Area Agency on Aging District 7 (AAA7) provides through the Medicare Improvements for Patients and Providers Act (MIPPA) grant from the Ohio Department of Aging. This project provides outreach to and enrollment assistance for individuals who may be eligible for the Low-Income Subsidy and/or Medicare Savings Program, as well as other Medicare premium assistance programs. Low Income Subsidy (LIS) or “Extra Help” is a discount plan that can: lower your prescription co-pays; cover all or part of your Medicare Part D monthly premiums; or eliminate the “doughnut hole” of coverage for your medications. Part D is Medicare’s prescription drug coverage and is available to anyone eligible for Medicare Part A or Part B. Those with Medicare may enroll in Part D coverage through either a stand-alone plan or a Medicare Advantage plan. To be eligible for “Extra Help,” income guidelines and qualifications must

Let's get started planning the Little State Fair. We went to Columbus again for the Ohio Fair Manager Association convention. Three days of classes on different problems, new laws to understand, and suggestions on improving our fair. While going around and talking to different vendors my wife got to shake hands with Arnold Schwarzenegger. He was in Columbus for his Iron Man show and stopped by to see the Convention Center. As he was leaving someone behind me said “I'll be back” and got a big laugh from everyone. The Fair Manager's want to thank Mac Tool for their donation of a tool box and the Brown County Bee Keepers for their basket of honey products. Our theme for this year's fair is: Memories for Everyone at the Brown County Fair. Through the year I'm going to mention my memories and I hope you can think of fond memories too. Our top memory was 1984 when two Eastern High School students won the King and Queen contest on the Monday of the fair. At that time it was held in the center ring after the parade. Sitting in the grandstand that night we watched Lori Whalen and Rob Broughton crowned for 1984. Orville, Margie, Lottie and I were very proud parents of our children that night. I would like to ask if anyone has a picture of the parade last year going under the flags up at the court house? I think that was so neat and I want to thank the fire departments for their involvement. If you have a picture of this would you send it to: brcofair@hotmail.com June 28, 2014 is the date for the Brown County Summer Tractor Pull. Bob Neal signed the contract at the recent convention.

Local FFA Chapters team up, hold great auction On January 18, 2014 three local FFA chapters teamed up to hold the first annual Brown County FFA Consignment Auction. This event was held at the Brown County Fairgrounds in Georgetown, Ohio by the Eastern Brown, Georgetown, and Western Brown FFA chapters with the aid of the Eastern Brown FFA Alumni. The FFA chapters would like to thank everyone who consigned items, and bid or bought at the auction; as well as Campbell Auctioneers for donating their services. With special thanks to Cahall Brothers Inc., Brown County Rental in Ripley, and Equipment Superstore in Georgetown for donating loading equipment. We would also like to thank everyone that had a hand in helping this auction be a success because without people like you in the community, the FFA chapters would not be able to accomplish everything they do. There were almost three-hundred consignments and the money from these items was distributed among the chapters according to the consigner’s preference. Two pies and a quilt that were donated were also auctioned off with the proceeds benefiting the Wounded Warrior Project. Despite the cold, snowy conditions the three FFA chapters were pleased with how the auction turned out and cannot wait to improve in the coming years.

Lady Broncos fall at North Adams BY Wade Linville The Brown County Press The Western Brown Lady Broncos dropped to a 9-5 overall record after falling to the North Adams Lady Green Devils 50-42 in a non-league contest held Jan. 13 at North Adams High School. The Lady Broncos led 25-20 after the first half of play, but it was the Lady Green Devils rallying back to outscore the Western Brown squad 30-17 in the second half to capture the victory.

Leading the Lady Broncos in scoring was Lindsey Harvey with 15 points. Western Brown's Morgan Fischer shot for eight points, while teammate Brooke Lindsey ended the game with seven points. Western Brown's Mackaela Fischer buried two shots from the field, which included one three-pointer, and connected on one-oftwo attempts from the charity stripe to finish with six points. Leading the Lady Green Devils in the win was Staci Dinsmore with 14 points.

The G-Men took a trip to New Richmond High School on Jan. 17 to pin a 60-57 loss on the now 11-4 Lions. “It was a good win for us,” said Georgetown coach Jerry Underwood. “Our kids knew New Richmond had been playing well. Their only loss was Wednesday to Hughs, and they lost to Mariemont earlier in the year, but they've beat some great teams. Their size is amazing. They have big kids and they can score. We had to do things to eliminate that.” The G-Men kicked off the game on a 5-0 run, but the Lions quickly rallied back to take a 10-9 lead to end the first quarter in what was a close bout throughout. The Lions then jumped to an eight point lead in the second period, while the GMen battled to stay within striking distance against the larger New Richmond squad. A bucket by Georgetown junior Jake Cropper with 4:03 to go in the second quarter cut the Lions' lead to 18-12, then it was a set of hit free throws by Georgetown's junior guard Jake Miller that left the G-Men trailing by just four points. At halftime break, it was the Lions leading 29-22. The G-Men rallied back in the third quarter, outscoring the Lions 19-11 in the frame to take a 41-40 lead. Georgetown's junior postman Gage Bradley struggled to knock down shots in the first half, but he would put together a big second half of offense to help the G-Men rise to a six point advantage late in the fourth quarter. The G-Men led by six in the final seconds, and a three-pointer at the buzzer by New Richmond's C.J. Crogan didn't change the outcome in Friday's nonleague bout. “I thought our kids came out and scrapped, and they fought hard in the second half. Those are the things you look for in the season, when you're on the road and you keep fighting hard to get back into the game, and that's when you start winning. We knew coming in that they are by far the best team in the (SBAAC ) big school (division). This is one of those games where we had to play well and do things right down the stretch, and fortunately we did,” said Underwood. Bradley led the G-Men in the win at New Richmond with 19 points. He also pulled down seven rebounds and passed for two assists. Miller finished with 16 points, sinking only three shots from the field but connecting on a perfect 10-of10 attempts from the foul line. Cropper finished with nine points to go along with 10 rebounds. Georgetown's Daniel Broadwell and Bruce Derrick-Williams ended the night with six points apiece. Leading the Lions in scoring was John Ernst with

The G-Men led by 12 at halftime, but exploded in the second half to take down the Warriors in impressive fashion.

Success on the hardwood continued for the Georgetown Lady G-Men on Jan. 20, as they ventured to Bethel-Tate High School to return home with a 44-32 victory over the homestanding Lady Tigers. Monday's win over the Lady Tigers marked the third straight for the Lady G-Men, bringing their overall record to 12-3 on the season. After a close first half of play, it was an aggressive defense and exceptional shooting that helped the Lady G-Men pull away in the second half to bring home the victory. The Lady G-Men were outscored 8-7 in the first frame, and after outscoring the Lady Tigers 14-13 in the second quarter the two teams were knotted at 21 at halftime break. Coming off halftime break, the Lady G-Men racked up 16 points in the third period while holding the Tigers to 10. Entering the fourth period of play, the Lady G-Men were clinging tight to a 3731 advantage. It was a fine defensive display for the Lady G-Men in the fourth quarter, a much needed showing on defense considering the George-

town squad only managed seven points in the period. They would hold the Lady Tigers to just one point in the final period, failing to give up a field goal to the home team in the final eight minutes of play to cap off a 12-point win. There were two Lady GMen to shoot for double figures against the Lady Tigers. Georgetown's Mackenzi Carrington led the way with 14 points, draining five-ofnine shots from the field, which included one threepointer, and connecting on three-of-four attempts from the foul line. Georgetown senior Megan Hatfield ended the night with 12 points to go along with three rebounds and one steal. Shooting four-for-nine from the field to finish with eight points was Georgetown's junior center Kayla Seigla, who also pulled down three rebounds and passed for two assists. Georgetown's junior guard Morgan Gast ended the night with five points, two rebounds, and two assists. Leading the Lady G-Men on the boards against the Lady Tigers was senior point guard Rebecca Whitaker with six rebounds. She also led the Lady GMen on defense with six

steals, and dished out two assists. The Lady G-Men's win at Bethel came after they managed to top the talented squad from Glen Este on Jan. 13 at Georgetown High School. “That was our best effort all year,” Georgetown coach Bernie Cropper said of his crew’s win over Glen Este. “We have not played as well as we are capable of until this week.” Carrington led the Lady G-Men in the win over Glen Este with 21 points, draining seven-of-10 shots from the field that included twoof-four shooting from beyond the arc, and connecting on five-of-five attempts from the foul line. Whitaker ended the night with 10 points to with one field goal and perfect eightof-eight shooting from the foul line. Georgetown’s Megan Hatfield fired for eight points in the Jan. 13 win, while Seigla fired for six points and hammered the boards for 10 rebounds.

Heather Daugherty of Bethel received word while she was home on Christmas break from Lake Erie College that she had been named to the Dean's List for the fall semester 2013. The letter from Dale Sheptak, Dean, School of Education and Professional Studies at Lake Erie College, went on to say "that this distinction is reserved for students who have earned at least eight semester hours (Heather earned 18) at the College during a single academic term and achieved a semester grade point average of 3.50 or higher. The Dean's List is noted on your College transcript in the semester in which it was attained". His letter to her ended by saying "Congratulations

Heather is studying early childhood education and hopes to be an elementary school teacher upon graduating.

The Joint Commission recognizes Mercy Health Hospitals as top performers

Mercy Health, which provides quality care with compassion in your neighborhood through its network of care, announces that The Joint Commission, the leading accreditor of healthcare organizations in America, has named Mercy Health – Anderson and Clermont Hospitals among the nation’s Top Performers on Key Quality Measures. Anderson and Clermont Hospitals were the only hospitals in Greater Cincinnati to receive the designation, which places them in the top 33 percent of all Joint Commission-accredited hospitals that reported accountability measure performance data for 2012. Anderson and Clermont Hospitals earned the Top Performer distinction for attaining and sustaining excellence on key quality measures. The Joint Commission recognized the hospitals for exemplary performance in using evidence-based clinical processes that improved care for conditions including: heart attack at Anderson Hospital and heart failure, pneumonia and surgical care at Anderson and Clermont Hospitals. The Joint Commission bases the ratings on an aggregation of accountability measure data reported to the commission during the 2012 calendar year. “Every day, our goal is the same - to do the right things at the right time for our patients to help them be well and stay well,” said Yousuf J. Ahmad, Market President and CEO of Mercy Health. “Having The

Joint Commission recognize our efforts to provide the best quality patient care is an honor that validates the work of our dedicated team of physicians, nurses and staff.” “It’s no surprise that what matters most to patients at our hospitals is receiving safe, effective care. Providing that care in a compassionate way is what matters most to us and that’s why we’ve committed to securing Joint Commission accreditation and to delivering positive patient outcomes through evidence-based care processes. We are proud to be named to the list of The Joint Commission’s Top Performers on Key Quality Measures,” said Jeff Graham, market leader and president of Mercy Health – East Market, which includes Anderson and Clermont hospitals. “Mercy Health – Anderson and Clermont Hospitals and all the Top Performer hospitals have demonstrated an exceptional commitment to quality improvement and they should be proud of their achievement,” says Mark R. Chassin, M.D., FACP, M.P.P., M.P.H., president and chief executive officer, The Joint Commission. “We have much to celebrate this year. Nearly half of our accredited hospitals have attained or nearly attained the Top Performer distinction. This truly shows that we are approaching a tipping point in hospital quality performance that will directly contribute to better health outcomes for patients.” In addition to being included in the release of The

Joint Commission’s “Improving America’s Hospitals” annual report, The Joint Commission’s Quality Check website (www.qualitycheck.org). will recognize Mercy Health – Anderson and Clermont Hospitals. The December issues of The Joint Commission Perspectives and The Source will feature The Top Performer program.

Colchicine used to be dosed that you took it every 2 hours until the pain went away or you started vomiti ng or diarrhea started. Colchicine is an extract from the plant Colchicum. The Colchicum is a flower in the crocus family.

TOM CALLAHAN, RPH ### Omeprazole (Prilosec) was the first drug in the class of “PPI”. A PPI is a proton-pump-inhibitor. That means that omeprazole shuts down the cells in the stomach that actually produce the acid in the stomach. Once the drug omeprazole binds to the acid producing cell, th at cell is shut down for good and will not produce acid anymore. Unfortunately, because the environment in the stomach is so hostile these cells have short lives. That’s why Prilosec has to be taken every day. ### Ibuprofen was first synthesized in the UK by the drug company Boots. It was first approved as a prescription treatment in the UK in 1969. It was later approved in the US in 1974. Ibuprofen was approved for OTC sales at the 200mg strength in 1984. Ibuprofen is listed as a “core” medication by the World Health Organization meaning it is an essential medication to meet the medical needs of a basic healthcare system.

Attract cardinals to your garden

BY Faye Mahaffey Master Gardner Volunteer

Along with six other states, (Indiana, Illinois, Kentucky, Virginia, West Virginia, and North Carolina), Ohio has selected the cardinal as our state bird, and its showy appearance is often depicted, even on a license plate. It is also one of our most common birds, and a species that virtually everyone is familiar with. In winter, cardinals brighten the season with their color, some remaining on their breeding territories and others gathering into foraging flocks. Winter diet includes berries, which contribute to the cardinal’s striking feather coloration. The adult male is red overall, with a black face and chin. The female is gray-brown with a reddish tinge to her crest, wings, and tail. Adults have red bills. Juveniles resemble the female in coloration but have dark bills. In winter, cardinals may seek shelter in backyard conifers. Also watch for the bright red males along streams, in brushy fields, or in thickets of honeysuckle, privet, or other dense vines and shrubs. Springtime can become very interesting at our house thanks to the number of territorial male cardinals hanging around our birdfeeders. Fights break out between the males on the railing of our deck and they fight their own reflections in the windows along the side of our house. I have hung plastic strips, foil strips, and a variety of other flashy items to keep

them from the windows, but nothing seems to prevent them from attacking the good-looking male in the window! A cardinal’s nest is a bowl woven of whatever’s handy, twigs, plant stems paper, strips of bark, grasses, and usually a few leaves. The birds fasten the nest securely in a forked branch, usually hidden deep in a dense shrub or tree, often surprisingly low to the ground. Cardinals lay only three or four eggs, but they nest at least twice a season. Both parents build the nest, but it’s almost always the female’s job to sit on the eggs, which are bluish white with brown markings. The male tenderly feeds the female while she incubates the eggs. At feeders, cardinal favorites include sunflower and safflower seeds, and cracked corn. They also relish weed seeds, fruit, and elm buds, along with a wide variety of insects. My cardinals also love suet as well as cracked peanuts. The Blue Jays, Cardinals and woodpeckers line up on the railing for a trip to the peanut feeders. Can you recognize the song of the cardinal? Bird books describe the song pattern sounds like purdy, purdy, purdy…. whoit, whoit, whoit, whoit. I have several bird song compact discs and listening to the song over and over really does seem to help me recognize the song when I am working in the garden. OSUE Fact Sheet (W10-2001), Backyard Enhancement for Wildlife, provides important information on ways you can

make your backyard more attractive to wildlife and is available at ohioline.osu.edu. Mark your calendars for the February 20 garden seminar,” Using Native Plants in the Landscape”, at the Fincastle campus of Southern State Community College. All seminars are free and open to the public and are held in the library from 6 until 7:30 p.m. The countdown is on to spring! It will be here before you know it!

Attracting Cardinals to your garden in the winter

ODA recognizes 103 historic farms in 2013

In 2013, the Ohio Department of Agriculture recognized 103 century or bicentennial farms owned by the same family for at least 100 or 200 consecutive years. There are now more than 1,000 of these farms registered across the state. Each family received a certificate signed by Governor John R. Kasich and Ohio Department of Agriculture Director David Daniels to keep with their historic documents and pass down to future generations. “You can’t walk down Main Street and find many businesses that are older than our bicentennial and century farms,”

said Daniels. “That says a lot about these families, and the important role they have played in building Ohio’s top industry.” The Ohio Bicentennial and Century Farm program is a voluntary program administered by the Ohio Department of Agriculture. The department has been recognizing families who have owned their farms for at least 100 years since 1993. In 2013, the department began officially recognizing bicentennial farms in acknowledgment of the growing number of century farms that had reached their 200-year anniversary of same-family ownership. To kick off

the new Bicentennial Farm designation, Director Daniels presented certificates to those who qualified and were already enrolled in the program. For a full list of Ohio’s bicentennial and century farms, visit the website: www.agri.ohio.gov/divs/c ent_farms/. Anyone who can verify that a currently-owned farm has remained in their family for at least 100 years may register. For more information, visit www.agri.ohio.gov/divs/c ent_farms/, or contact Cindy Shy in the Office of Communication at 614752-9817 or cindy.shy@ agri.ohio.gov.

Forty-one complete Is your dog or cat a senior? SSCC’s nursing programs

Creature Feature

Do you know if your pet is a senior? Dogs are considered seniors after age 7 and cats are considered seniors after age 9. All Creatures Animal Hospital recommends senior pets receive an examination twice a year.  This is the equivalent of a geriatric human seeing their doctor every three and a half years! Senior pets need special attention. We need to address their level of joint pain, the health of their heart and lungs, condition of their teeth and gums, and their overall body function.  Bloodwork should be run more frequently to determine how well their organs are functioning, and if any preventative medications are required. Preventative measures taken now can greatly extend your pet’s life and quality of life, and will also save you money preventing the disease rather than treating a pet in crisis. To help your pet live a longer, more pain free life,  during the months  of January, February and March,  we are offering  the Senior at 7 package. What this means is your dog or cat can receive a comprehensive  examination, x-rays of the chest and abdomen, and an ekg OR blood pressure check, all for $219.  You save $40, and your pet receives the very best. Another great way to save on senior care while providing top level care are our senior wellness plans.    Our plans can be customized to meet your pets individual needs and still save you 20 percent.  Ask any All Creatures representative for a customized quote for your pet.  Senior pets are the best!    You know them well, they know you even better, and they are worth their weight in gold for these reasons.    They’re also worth special care to keep them well and happy for as long as possible.  Appropriate health care can add years to the life of your pet as well as substantially decrease your cost of treating medical problems associated with aging. The age your dog hits senior status varies by breed and other factors.  The checkups your dog needs change at this time of life.    Since pets age faster than humans, it can be estimated that one physical examination for a pet is equivalent to one exam every five to seven years in humans.    In later years, a comprehensive physical examination of your pet should be performed every six to twelve months, depending on any specific medical problems discovered.  When you and your vet know what’s going on in the dog’s body, you can adjust things that often make a world of difference in how the dog feels and behaves.    Many medical problems can be diagnosed through the use of diagnostic testing long before clinical signs of disease become evident.    Your vet should perform an ECG and glaucoma screeningurinalysis, thyroid screening, complete blood counts and blood chemistry screening for your senior pet.  Blood values guide your veterinarian in making appropriate treatment choices for your pet’s individual situation.    Drawing blood is simple for most pets and relatively inexpensive – a bargain for the value to your pet’s good health. Some inherited medical problems take their greatest tolls as dogs reach the senior years, especially if they have not been previously treated.    Hypothyroidism undetected in younger years can cause serious problems in the geriatric dog, and hip dyspla-

sia that may not have bothered the dog noticeably in younger years now may bring some bad days. Depending on the dog’s age and other factors, medication will likely help, and surgery may be an option. You can restructure the dog’s environment and daily routine to eliminate the need to walk on slick floors, jump up into vehicles or onto furniture, or climb a substantial number of steps. Senior dogs are prone to cancers, so have any lumps or other symptoms checked promptly. Skin growths are more common in senior pets.  Early removal decreases pain, your costs, and chances of spreading.  Many cancers can be cured if caught early.    Sometimes treatment can provide a normal lifespan. Any way you look at it, you need to know as early in the course of the cancer as possible. Depression of the immune system occurs in older pets, making them more susceptible to common infectious diseases.  Maintaining vaccinations is very important because of this potential for decreased resistance to disease.  Senior pets should also be on flea, tick and heartworm prevention all year long.    Since senior pets develop a partial loss of taste and smell, they become picky eaters, even with treats, which makes giving medicine in pill form more difficult.  It helps when you’re trying to slip your dog a pill inside a treat to first give a treat or two without a hidden pill. Then, without hesitation, give the treat with the pill tucked inside, followed at the same brisk pace by a few more treats.  Perhaps the most curable and preventable disease in older pets is dental disease.    Dog’s teeth usually receive little, if any, preventive care and as a result are often very infected later in life.    Once bacteria become attached to the teeth below the gums, it spreads throughout the body.  Many respiratory, kidney, liver, and heart infections result from this bacteria.  This is largely preventable with appropriate dental hygiene in the form of

dental exams, routine use of dental hygiene products, and dental scaling/polishing. A proper diet must meet nutrient requirements for an older dog.  I recommend that you choose a diet that is specifically balanced for the geriatric stage your dog is in.    Feed the highest quality pet food you can afford and read labels carefully.    Ideal diets for senior pets have less sodium and fat, and more fiber than regular adult foods.    Higher quality and premium foods are also more digestible.  If a specific medical condition is diagnosed, a specific prescription diet may be best for your pet.    Whatever you’re feeding your senior dog, make sure that you follow the feeding guidelines for less active pets.    Extra pounds burden the heart, kidneys, muscles and joints, decreasing life expectancy 30-50 percent.  It is much harder to get your dog to lose weight than to prevent the weight gain in the first place. After so many years of loyalty and support, your pet deserves the best care you and your vet can give them.  Please bring your senior pet to a veterinarian if you observe any of the following:   • Sustained, significant increase in urination or water consumption • Weight loss • Significant increase or decrease in appetite, or failure to eat for more than two days • Repeated vomiting or diarrhea • Difficulty in passing stool or urine • Elimination accidents in the house or general changes in bowel habits • Lameness that lasts more than three days, or lameness in more than one leg • Masses, open sores, or scabs on the skin that persist more than one week • Foul mouth odor or drooling that lasts more than two days • Increased size of the abdomen • Persistent coughing • Hair loss, especially if accompanied by scratching • Seizures (convulsions) • Reluctance or inability to chew dry food Dr. Dan Meakin is the owner of All Creatures Animal Hospital, 1894 Ohio Pike in Amelia.

Larry was the long-time owner of Gallagher's Gas Station located beside the former Aberdeen School. It has always been nice to pull in there and get gas, have tires and oil checked, just like I remembered from my youth. Somehow, I connect Larry with my Sue Bennett College days. His is the

second death that I have learned of lately connected with that young, carefree time of my life. The second death was that of Charles David Young a Manchester, Ky., boy that loved showing me the sights of Clay County, Ky. That is until one Sunday we visited his parents house on Sunday afternoon and I was wearing shorts-a definite IMPOPER attire for a Sunday! My condolences to the Young family and to the Gallagher family and just more reminders of how much I miss hearing the laughter of my dorm-mate Barbara Roberts Creech and the innocence of those times. ### Please pray for David Frazure. David also worked at BCGH-which now has a new name. He worked as what was once called “an orderly”. I will not go into great detail about why to pray but.....

### The Russellville Church of Christ the home of God's Closet, God's Kitchen, and God' Pantry, which will all be open this Saturday, has now started a Sunday evening Bible Study for the adults and youth groups for school aged children. You are invited. ### Friend of Red Oak Ms. June Myers, author and poet, had her poetry chosen by the art students of Saint Patrick of Maysville to illustrate her work. These illustrations are being featured along with a reception for the artist during the February Art Show located in the Cox Gallery, 2nd floor, 3rd and Market St. on February 2, 2014, 35 p.m. Works by Candee Basford and works by Katie Basford are also being featured. Personally, I am excited about this art show. I had the opportunity, and considered myself blessed, to know Ms. Katie when we attending SSCC at the same time. I am glad to hear her name again. Ms. June also is quite a legend and gives of her talents often and is a blessing many times to many others.

Secretary of State Husted awards $2,160 to the Highland County Board of Elections

Cynthia Sun, MSN, RN (HHQI Cardiovascular Project Coordinator) and OVM Home Health Team.

OVM Home Health designated Cardiovascular Pioneer by national campaign

OVM Home Health was recently named a “Cardiovascular Pioneer” by the Home Health Quality Improvement (HHQI) National Campaign, which is an initiative of the federal Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. The Pioneer designation is awarded to home health agencies that make a commitment to helping patients lower their risks for heart attacks and strokes. Participating agencies implement patient-centered programs to improve aspirin therapy, blood pressure control, cholesterol management and smoking cessation (known as the ABCS of cardiovascular prevention). They also agree to report statistics to the HHQI campaign, which tracks progress locally and across the nation through its Home Health Cardiovascular Data Registry (HHCDR) pilot project. OVM Home Health Administrator, Lisa Fussnecker, RN, said, “We are participating in the quality improvement and reporting initiative because the health and well being of patients is its number one priority.” “We are committed to high quality care for our patients and are pleased to be helping the HHQI National Campaign prevent heart attacks and strokes,” said Fussnecker. “As a Cardiovascular Pioneer, we will also be measuring our progress and helping contribute to better care for patients, better health for our communities and lower costs through improvement of the health care system.” OVM Home Health focuses on the continuity of

care for patients in their own homes by offering therapy, nursing and home health aide services to the residents of Adams, Brown, Clermont and Highland counties in Ohio. The offices are located inside Ohio Valley Manor, Inc., just North of Ripley on US Highway 62 and 68. Visit www.ohiovalleymanor.com to learn more about our services, facility and healthcare team. Since 2007, the Home Health Quality Improve-

ment (HHQI) National Campaign has been dedicated to improving the quality of care provided to America’s home health patients with evidence-based tools, timely data reports and a wealth of ongoing educational opportunities for home health agencies. You can learn more about HHQI and see a list of its Cardiovascular Pioneers at www.HomeHealthQuality.o rg.

Gold Star Chili partners with the DORITOS® brand to offer…Gold Star Chili Doritos Nachos Gold Star Chili, The Flavor of Cincinnati, is kicking off 2014 with a special promotion to introduce its newest menu offering, Gold Star Chili DORITOS Nachos. The promotion is a partnership with Pepsi/Frito-Lays’ DORITOS brand. If the new Nachos offering does well in its initial promotional period, January 13th through February 23rd, Gold Star plans to add it permanently to the regular menu. Gold Star DORITOS Nachos feature Nacho Cheese Doritos, piled high with generous portions of mild cheddar cheese, Gold Star’s famous Cincinnati-style chili, diced tomatoes, jalapeños, and black olives, drizzled with Chipotle Ranch dressing and topped with a dollop of sour cream. The large portion can be ordered as an entre or sharable appetizer for $4.99 or as a combo meal, paired with a regular fountain drink for $5.99. It’s affordable and filling. Gold Star’s DORITOs Nachos promotion capitalizes on a current trend

of restaurant menu items that feature high-profile package goods/grocery brand products as key ingredients. It is also part of a strategy to help Gold Star Chili reconnect with a younger demographic segment. “While there is broad appeal for the DORITOS brand, it has a particularly strong following with the millennial demographic that Gold Star hopes to capture with this promotion,” says Gold Star

Chili Vice President of Marketing & Brand Development, Charlie Howard. “A significant portion of our television, radio and digital media budget for this promotion will be targeting millennial males, age 18 to 34.” Gold Star Chili will also be offering DORITOS as a component of two other current menu offerings: Cincinnatistyle Chili Cheese Dip and with its South of the Border Chili Salad.

NB&T financial reports earnings for 2013

B R O A D S H E E T E V E N

for the same period in 2012. President & CEO, John Limbert, commented, “Like most banks in this current rate environment, we were challenged in 2013 with lower yields on our loans and investments. We were able to offset the lost revenue by reducing expenses and our loan loss provision. The lower loan loss provision is a result of lower charge-offs in 2013 compared to 2012, lower other real estate owned balances, and an almost 50% drop in total nonperforming loans.” Net interest income was $20.6 million for 2013, compared to $22.1 million for 2012. Net interest margin decreased to 3.37% for 2013, compared to 3.48% for the previous year. Net interest margin is down primarily as a result of loan and investment yields continuing to decrease more in this low interest rate environment than our cost of funds. Interest income on loans and investments of $22.5 million in 2013 was down $2.8 million from $25.3 million in 2012. Interest expense, however, only fell $1.3 million in

2013 to $1.8 million from $3.1 million in 2012. Net interest income for the fourth quarter of 2013 was $5.1 million, compared to $5.7 million for 2012. The provision for loan losses for 2013 was $2.6 million, compared to $4.3 million the previous year. Net charge-offs were $3.3 million for 2013, compared to $4.2 million in 2012. Net charge-offs for the fourth quarter of 2013 were $2.6 million, compared to $2.1 million in the same quarter last year. During the fourth quarter, NB&T charged off $2.4 million on one commercial loan that previously had a specific reserve of $2.0 million. The fourth quarter liquidation of the collateral securing that loan yielded lower proceeds than previously projected. Primarily as a result of this charge-off and resolution of other problem loans in 2013, non-performing loans declined to $5.8 million at December 31, 2013, compared to $10.6 million at December 31, 2012. Total non-interest income was $9.6 million for 2013, compared to $10.5 million for 2012. The de-

crease is primarily due to the non-recurring income of $764,000 in 2012 related to the termination of the single-family FDIC loss share guarantee and the bank-owned life insurance death benefit. Non-interest income for the fourth quarter of 2013 was $2.3 million, compared to $2.1 million for the same period last year. In the fourth quarter of 2013, NB&T realized gains on sales of securities of $227,000. Total non-interest expense was $22.4 million for 2013, compared to $23.5 million in 2012. The decline in expense is due to continued focus on expense reduction, primarily in the areas of personnel and processing efficiency. In addition, net costs associated with the maintenance of other real estate have declined in the past year as the number of properties declined. For the fourth quarter of 2013, total noninterest expense was $5.4 million, compared to $5.7 million for the same period in 2012. On December 17, 2013, the Board of Directors declared a dividend of $0.30 per share, payable January

27, 2014 to shareholders of record on December 31, 2013. Also, at their January 21, 2014 meeting, the Board of Directors increased the number of directors to nine. At the same meeting, the Board appointed James

Reynolds, President of Wilmington College, as a director effective at the February 2014 Board of Directors’ meeting.

NB&T Financial Group, Inc. (Nasdaq: NBTF), parent company of The National Bank and Trust Company ("NB&T"), Wilmington, Ohio, announced net income for 2013 of $4.24 million, or $1.24 per share, an increase of 9% compared to net income of $3.88 million for 2012, or $1.13 per share. A net interest income decrease of approximately $1.5 million in 2013 was more than offset by decreases in the loan loss provision of $1.7 million and non-interest expenses of $1.1 million in 2013 compared to 2012. Total noninterest income in 2013 was down $899,000 from 2012 primarily due to two items in 2012: 1) termination of NB&T’s singlefamily FDIC loss share guarantee for approximately $405,000 and 2) realization of non-taxable income of approximately $359,000 on a bank-owned life insurance death benefit in excess of surrender value. Net income for the fourth quarter of 2013 was $1.0 million, or $.30 per share, compared to $1.1 million, or $.32 per share,
