Flood insurance rates exploding BY Wayne Gates The Brown County Press Flood insurance rates for residents and businesses near the Ohio River are skyrocketing. The Biggert-Waters Insurance Reform Act of 2012 ends flood insurance subsidies for homes and businesses in flood zones. Insurance premiums are based on risk and property value, so individual amounts of the increase vary, but some individuals will see their rates go up tenfold as subsidies are phased out over four to five years. The issue is complicated further by the issuance of new flood risk maps by the Federal Emergency Management Agency. The up-
dated maps are placing some areas in risk zones for flooding that were not designated as at-risk by previous maps. Biggert-Waters phases out the flood insurance subsidy for homeowners and businesses by 20 to 25 percent per year, depending on individual circumstances, until it is eliminated. Also as of October 1, 2013, if flood insurance has lapsed or upon ownership transfer, the new unsubsidized flood insurance rates apply. The idea behind the law was to reduce the debt owed by the federal flood insurance program, which after storms like Katrina and Sandy, is billions of dollars in the hole. There are moves in the U.S. Senate and the House
to soften the impact of the changes. On January 29, the Senate voted to reopen debate on the matter. However, the law was passed in July of 2012, and unless changes are made and approved by the Senate, House and President, the subsidies will be cut as planned. “This whole thing is in a state of flux right now”, 2nd District Rep. Brad Wenstrup (R) told the Brown County Press. “I don’t know that people are getting a fair shake. I think there are places with levees and other measures that are in place that are less risk, but the government is putting them all in one category.” Wenstrup said there are some options being disCONTINUED ON PAGE 12

Many homes and businesses along the Ohio River are facing higher flood insurance costs as a result of the Biggert-Waters Insurance Reform Act of 2012.
Districts explore options Mootispaw pleads to make up snow days guilty, gets five years BY Martha B. Jacob The Brown County Press With the continuing harsh weather, Brown County schools are searching for ways to help students keep up with their school work. Schools are allowed five snow days allotted by the Ohio Department of Education. After those days, students have to make up any more missed school days. According to Michele Filon, Superintendent of Eastern Local Schools, her district has now accumulated 12 calamity days due to the extreme temperatures and inclement weather. Filon said, “Hopefully
Governor Kasich will grant additional calamity days for Ohio school districts. Eastern’s Board of Education passed a resolution last Friday approving at least three blizzard bag days.” A ‘blizzard bag’ is homework that students take home in anticipation of missing school. They do the work and return it to the teacher when school resumes. Schools are then allowed to use the work that is turned in to count as a school day. Filon described the following four ways this can be accomplished including: • 4 “Fridays” built into the May calendar;
• blizzard bag days (3 days); • extend the school day by 30 minutes during April and May (if legislation occurs to allow districts this option): • extend the school year by adding days in June (this option will be used as a last resort). “If our district is forced to extend the school year by adding days in June,” Filon added, “our 5th and 6th graders and families who are going on the Washington DC trip during the first week in June will participate without being penalized in any way. The district will work with any family with trips CONTINUED ON PAGE 12
BY Wayne Gates The Brown County Press Less than a week after deciding to go to trial for first degree Involuntary Manslaughter in connection with the death of his brother, Darrell Mootispaw has entered a guilty plea to that charge. He was sentenced to five years in prison on Jan. 28 by Common Pleas Court Judge Scott Gusweiler. As part of his plea agreement, Mootispaw must testify against Joseph Trzeciak, who is charged with killing James Mootispaw in Mt. Orab in June of 2013.
Wayne Gates/ THE BROWN COUNTY PRESS
Trzeciak will go on trial for murder later this year. “We believe that Joseph Trzeciak was the shooter,
the one that actually killed James Mootispaw”, said Brown County Assistant Prosecuting Attorney Zac Corbin. “This tragedy shows that bringing drugs into Brown County is not a victimless crime. Here we have a death that is attributed to drug activity in Brown County” Corbin said. “It was set up as a drug deal involving marijuana, things went wrong. We believe that there was approximately one thousand dollars worth of marijuana involved and James Mootispaw was shot and killed over that money.” CONTINUED ON PAGE 12

BC Chamber honors award winners BY Martha B.

Southern State Community College received the Drucker award and the winner of the Lifetime Achievement Award was
Ray Becraft of Georgetown. The Drucker Award of Distinction recognizes local businesses that have accomplished “Achievement in Business Excellence”. The award takes into account evidence of leadership, vision and innovation as well as exhibiting understanding of the principles of quality management. This year’s award was sponsored by First
State Bank. Before the award was presented, visitors enjoyed a powerpoint presentation about the history of SSCC and some of its accomplishments since it was chartered in 1975 as Southern State General and Technical College to serve Adams, Brown, Clinton, Fayette and Highland Counties. In April of 1975 the University of Cincinnati’s
Board of Trustees indicated its support of the college district which encompassed UC’s Tri-County Academic Center at Macon. In 1977, the name of the college was officially changed to Southern State Community College. SSCC currently has a new campus under construction in Mt. Orab which is scheduled to open CONTINUED ON PAGE 12
Local attorney Danny Bubp is running for Probate/Juvenile Court Judge. Bubp filed his petition with the Brown County Board of Elections on January 28. If another Republican gets into the race, Bubp will face a primary opponent in May. If not, Bubp will be on the general election ballot in November of this year. Bubp said his desire to be elected to the bench comes from wanting to continue to serve the public. “I finished up eight years in the state legislature and chose not to run for the state senate in 2013. I sat out last year and thought about public service and decided to get back into the arena, if you will”, he said. “After eight years in the legislature, with the last two as Chairman of the Judiciary Committee, I helped pass a lot of laws in Ohio that affect the courts, and I thought that after passing these laws, why not help enforce them?”
Bubp pointed out that he already has extensive experience on the bench. “Years ago, I was elected as the Adams County court judge and then our Common Pleas judge died suddenly and Governor Voinovich at the time appointed me to fill the term out as Common Pleas/Juvenile judge.” Bubp said he felt that serving as juvenile judge put him in a unique position to help young people. “You have such an opportunity to impact their lives” he said. “I really enjoyed workCONTINUED ON PAGE 12

BY Martha B. Jacob The Brown County Press Georgetown Village Council member Susan Bean told council at the January 23 meeting that she had heard that Shopko Marketplace was closing its doors. Shopko has only been in business in Georgetown for
B R O A D S H E E T
a little over a year, having moved into the location after the Pamida store closed its doors. “I stopped in and spoke to the manager yesterday,” said Councilwoman RaeLena Morrison. “As far as they’re concerned, it was a corporate decision and they are scheduled to be closed by April.”
Also at the meeting, Ron Roberts of Roberts-Stein Group spoke briefly to members council about the designated CRA (Community Reinvestment Area) in the village. The CRA is a state funded program through the Ohio Department of Development which offers grants to be used for offering real property tax incentives for residents and businesses that invest in the designated areas. “The CRA is actually complete,” Roberts began, “It’s ready to submit we’re just waiting for a couple items. One is a letter from the school board. Back in September when we met with them, (Village Admin-
istrator) Jeremy (Germann) requested that letter after an ordinance had been posted in the newspaper, which has just recently appeared, so I expect to get the letter soon, get Jeremy to sign it and get it on its way. I don’t know how long it will take to be reviewed.” Roberts, who is also building inspector for Georgetown continued with an update on the past years demolitions on old structures as well as upcoming plans to clean up old and unsafe structures. Roberts provided council with a long list of old buildings, burned buildings and dilapidated structures which he discussed one by one. Several council members provided more information on the list. In other business, Mayor Dale Cahall reported to council about a Jan. 16 utility committee meeting with himself, council members Drew Watson and Dennis Wastewater Superintendent Dereck Copus and Germann. “We met with Wayne Cannon, a rural development specialist contractor through the Rural Community Assistance Program,” Mayor Cahall said. “Mr. Cannon has been working with us in regard to the sewer plant.” Cahall explained that Cannon had given a presentation on establishing wastewater rates that will be adequate to pay off loans incurred to complete the Town Run Wastewater Project, which was mandated by the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency. He added that the presentation included expected operating budget, capital improvement plans and inflation rates. “We have invited Mr.

Georgetown Councilwoman Susan Bean shared this picture of the Georgetown Village sign with council to show just how badly the sign needs to be repaired.
Cannon to join us on Feb. 13 at our regular council meeting to make his formal presentation in front of full council,” Cahall added. Georgetown Fire Department Chief Joey Rockey told council that he was very happy to report that since his department’s merger with the life squad in November, things were going very smoothly. “Since the merger we’ve had a lot of meetings and a lot of trainings and just a lot going on,” Rockey said. “Through October, November and December we’ve answered 270 squad calls. We only missed one call. I’m not sure why, but here lately we’ve been getting multiple calls at the same time. I would like to say that I am very happy with our staff and their efforts in keeping the roster covered.” Rocky also described a special hands on training session his department held behind the elementary school which was a simulation of a patient over a cliff. “We’re currently working with farm bureau in the purchase of a farm-accident rescue trailer for the county,” Rockey said. “Actually we’d like to get two, if we can. Highland County was very successful in get-
ting one through donations and when I saw it, I wanted one for our village. Farm Bureau would own it and we would staff it and store it at our station.” Rockey said the equipment would be crucial in saving lives during a silo accident. Chief Rockey also told council that he had recently added four more people to his department. In other business during the meeting, Bean provided pictures of the Georgetown sign at the corporation limits of the village taken when it was new, approximately 12 years ago. Bean said something needed to be done to preserve the sign which is in bad condition, full of cracks and in dire need of being painted. She told council that if necessary, she would be willing to paint it if the cracks could be repaired first. “The sign is very weathered and the paint needs to be removed before it’s repainted,” Bean explained. “We really need a sign maker to do the job right. I did find the name of a sign maker, from Mansfield and I emailed him pictures of the sign to get an estimate. I haven’t heard from him as of yet.”

employers, through private insurance companies, Medicare, TRICARE/Veterans Affairs or through the Health Insurance Marketplace. According to literature passed out at the workshop there are individuals who are exempt from the mandate including: • individuals with financial hardship; • individuals with religious objection; • undocumented immigrants; • individuals whose income is below the threshold required to file a tax return; • individuals where the lowest cost health plan available exceeds 8% of their income. “What we try to do is explain just how this marketplace can help them personally,” May said. “Every case is different and every person has many options available to them. It allows for applesto-apples comparison of qualified health plans.
BY Martha B. Jacob The Brown County Press Representatives from the Ohio Association of Food Banks, Jessica May and James Ferda, held an informational meeting at the Mt. Orab Library, Jan. 27 to help residents from the area apply for coverage in the Health Insurance Marketplace. The three and half hour workshop was set up to answer any questions about how the marketplace works and to help individuals apply on line. “The first thing we try to do is help people understand just how the ‘Affordable Care Act’ works,” May said. “The act has provisions that make health care more comprehensive, more affordable and gives consumers more choices.” May told people that beginning in 2014 most individuals will need to purchase or obtain health insurance coverage. They can get it through their

There are so many variables out there, from family size, age, if they qualify for Medicaid, and the list goes on and on.” May stated that people currently on or about to become eligible for Medicare are not affected by the insurance mandate. She said even qualified health plans can vary to cover additional benefits, over and above the essential health benefits. “Premiums, copays and coinsurance will be different in different plans,” she said, “and some special types of plans will be structured differently, such as high-deductible plans. All the plans in the marketplace offer the same set of essential health benefits. These are benefits that people need when getting care. They cover things like doctor’s visits, prescriptions, hospitalizations, pregnancy and more.” She said that plans can offer other benefits like vision, dental or medical management programs for a specific disease or condition. However, she said specific benefits may be different in each state. “When you compare plans in the marketplace, they’re put into four categories based on how you and the plan can expect to share the costs for health care,” May said. “The categories are bronze, silver, gold and platinum. On the bronze level of coverage (in addition to monthly premium) a person pays 40%, silver a person pays 30%, gold a person pays 20% and on
the platinum category a person wsill pay 10%. “The category you choose affects how much your premium costs each month and what portion of the bill you pay for things like hospital visits or prescriptions. It also affects your total out-ofpocket costs.” May said that after someone fills out a marketplace application they will learn if they are eligible for lower costs on their monthly premiums. “People can get all the information they need by visiting website www.healthcare.gov or by calling (800) 318-2596,” May added. May said the Ohio Association of Food Banks plans on scheduling another workshop in Brown County in the near future, before the March 31, 2014 deadline.

Letters to the Editor
Reader distrustful of President Obama Dear Editor, I just don’t feel like I can sit here one more day and not say something about our president and his idealogical allies on the left. President Obama is working towards dictatorial power that will turn America into a Soviet style disaster that will enslave me, you, and families all over America for many years to come. His lying is getting out of control. He and Hillary Clinton lying about our Ambassador Chris Stephens and three other Americans deaths killed by an anti Islamic video when they both knew it was a planned attack by AlQaeda on the anniversary of 9/11. He supposedly lied about the IRS scandal of attacks on conservative and religious groups. He denied knowing it happened. His spending spree’s are
putting our nation at risk demanding trillions of dollars more of new debt. He keeps preaching about more spending. We shall never get out of debt as long as he harasses Congress for more and more. He doesn’t care about working families struggling to make ends meet, have used up all their unemployment benefits, and not able to find a decent job unless it is part time. Families cannot live on part time wages. Now his Obamacare is robbing families of rightful insurance. This insurance will cause many families to go without insurance. Thousands have already lost their insurance and what does he do? Lie, you can keep your doctor, Lie, you can keep your insurance, Lie. He knew very well what was going to happen when trying to put this into effect. It is already
Be careful when you buy property Dear Editor, On September 9, 2013 we bought a piece of property at the Sheriff’s auction with the understanding that the taxes would be paid up til we received the deed. We got the deed on December 12, 2013. Then on January 10, 2014 we got a tax bill for $1342.32 for 2013. Even though we owned this property for only 19 days of 2013, we have to pay $1342.32 for the year of 2013. We went to the Sheriff’s
Department for help, they tried to no avail. Went to the Treasurer’s office, no help. Went to Chase Bank who held the mortgage on the property, no help there. Went to the Brown County Commissioners, no help. So, if you are going to buy property at the Sheriff’s auction, buy in January, that way you will at least own the property that you are paying taxes on for the year. Frank Estep

costing American families many times over what they were paying. He wants us to be so dependent on him and his government he will try anything. He lied about Osama Bin Laden for his own political gain. He lied about everything to get reelected. These terrorist groups are all over, even in America just waiting for the right time to strike again. Does he care? No. The Obama Administration has abandoned our allies. He has been especially cold with Israel, while giving aid to people like the Muslim Brotherhood. We all know that Israel and the Jewish people are God’s Chosen People and He will protect them in the end and protect the USA if we rally behind them. But what does President Obama know about religion? He worshipped for 20 years under a communist leader who hated the USA. He protects Iran with all his so called sanctions, and we know very well they too are just waiting for the right time to strike with their nuclear weapons. The ACLU with Hillary’s backing are trying to persecute christians by trying to silence us. Taking prayer out of schools, trying to take down public displays such as the Ten Commandments, Crossess where they have been for many years. Obama has destroyed many jobs for Americans by his restrictions and standards put on businesses. One in five households are on food stamps and nothing is getting better for the work force. Unemployment benefits are at an all
time high. Older seniors are struggling between food and medication. He has caused a surge in the cost of college tuition for our younger generation. Tuitions now cost a fortune and some may never find a job good enough to pay back the school loans. This is just a few of his tactics. Most of us teach our young children not to lie and to be honest, I know mine did. Now we are seeing a lawless President of the United States of America and his Washington cronies lying more and more to Americans. I hate this. Our Constitution is on the attack. We want honesty, jobs for everyone again and America wants to be a free nation by which we have always been proud of. A Nation under God with Liberty and Justice for all. Definitely not a dictatorial government. Let’s not forget God is still in control, watching us as a nation and if we the people don’t stand up for what is right and defend our liberties and our country, God can with a snap of his fingers take us out. As I know in my heart He is not happy with what is going on all around us. Let’s not let scare us by saying ‘I have a pen and a phone, I can do anything I want’. Lets stand up and get our Representatives on the phone and tell them we do not want our freedoms taken away by a dictator or a communist, leftist or whoever. We are a Christian nation and we need to let our government know where we stand. He is not God nor will he ever be one. He is just a president. Ginny Fultz

This past November, the Ohio House of Representatives successfully passed an important piece of legislation, House Bill 296. This bill seeks to better protect children while they are at school, easing the minds of many parents across the state. Allergic reactions are a concern for many Americans, as the American College of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology estimates that approximately 50 million Americans suffer from some type of allergy. Furthermore, they can be an even greater concern for children, who may have unknown allergies or may develop an allergy as they age. Therefore, this bill permits public schools, residential camps, and day camps to obtain epinephrine autoinjectors (otherwise known as EpiPens) without a license to use in the circumstance that a child would have a sudden allergic reaction. Many allergic reactions can be severe, or even fatal, and quick and safe treatment is necessary. EpiPens contain a dose of adrenaline that counteracts the effects of such a reaction, potentially saving the child’s life. Additionally, this bill gives permission to drug manufacturers to donate EpiPens to public schools and camps. It also allows
DOUG GREEN these entities to accept financial donations from individuals for the purchase of EpiPens. These two considerations eliminate some of the cost and financial burden that may be applied to school districts when they procure a supply of EpiPens. I am proud to be a supporter of this bill and its passage, and I have high hopes that the Ohio Senate will pass it as well. As most of the legislators behind this bill are parents themselves, we all know too well the fear of putting your child’s well-being into another person’s hands. However, when we send our children off to school, it becomes unavoidable. House Bill 296 will allow us to sleep a little easier at night knowing that if our children suffer from a sudden allergic reaction while at school they will be quickly and safely treated. By giving public schools and camps the authorization to carry EpiPens, we can make such places safer and better equipped for all children in Ohio.

BY Martha B. Jacob The Brown County Press Families coping with a loved one living with mental illness now have a weekly recovery support group meeting that can help them learn how to better understand and cope with the problem. Through the NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness) Connections Support Group meetings people living with mental illness, can learn from each others’ experiences, share coping strategies and offering each other encouragement and understanding. Amy Foley, executive di-
rector of the NAMI Clermont County hopes that Brown County residents will consider attending at least one support group meeting. “This is a free 90 minute structured support group,” Foley said. “It’s a place where people living with mental illness can learn valuable information about mental illness. They can also learn many coping mechanisms that perhaps are new to them. According to Foley NAMI Clermont County is also offering a free basic course for parents and caregivers of children with mental illness. “This NAMI Basics cours
will be taught by trained teachers who are the parent or other caregivers of individuals who developed the symptoms of mental illness prior to the age of 13 years,” Foley said. “The class will be held from 10 a.m. in the morning to 4 p.m. Dates for the class are March 1, March 8 and March 15 in the Child Focus Meeting Room at 551 Cincinnati-Batavia Pike in Clermont County.” Foley explained that parents/caregivers will receive valuable information on coping with the impact that mental illness has on the child living with the illness and the entire family
It will also provide tools for the parent/caregiver to use even after completing the program that will assist in making the best decisions possible for the care of the child. “This course will include an introduction to the stages of emotional reactions of the family to the mental illness, including crisis, shock, denial, grief and acceptance,” Foley said. “They will also receive the most current research related to the biology of mental illness and the evidencebased, most effective treatment strategies available, including medications used to treat mental illness in chil-

Ripley Council discusses flood insurance increases BY Martha B. Jacob The Brown County Press Members of the Ripley Village Council met in regular session on Jan. 28. Most of the meeting was spent discussing the dramatic effect of the recent changes made by FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) regarding the Biggert-Waters Flood Insurance Reform Act of 2012. “Since our last meeting I’ve researched everything I can find on this flood insurance reform,” village administrator Charles Ashmore said. “It actually went into effect the first of January in 2013. A lot of these changes are date sensitive in terms of residential properties. If you bought your property after
July 6, 2012, then they will face the unsubsidized rates. The federal government has been subsidizing insurance rates and those individuals have no choice, they’re going to pay the market rate.” Nearly every member of Ripley Council had some input on the flood insurance increase and how devastating it could be for the village. Ashmore said he has been in close contact with Congressman Brad Wenstrup in an effort to get this huge flood insurance increase stopped. Councilman Daniel Dragoo told council that people living in the flood plain could be forced to walk away from their homes because they would be unable to pay the
insurance increase which could turn the village into a ghost town. “Businesses won’t be able to pay these increases and they will be forced to close their doors and they won’t be able to pay the insurance and they won’t be able to sell.” In other business at the meeting Mayor Tom Leonard congratulated the street department for doing an outstanding job keeping the streets in the village cleaned up during the recent snow days. “I was in a couple neighboring villages on Friday,” Leonard said, “and you can tell the ones that don’t have a street department. I’m very happy with the job they’re doing.” Ashmore brought up the
Kroger donates to K-9 unit In the late 2000’s the Mt. Orab K-9 unit lost a dear friend and essential member of their department. The German Shepard had been a part of the K-9 unit for many years and in that time he was credited with helping keep crime and drugs off the streets of Mt. Orab. Since the dog passed, crime and drugs have increased exponentially in Mt. Orab and Brown County. The Mt. Orab police department has put a levy on the ballot in the past years but was unable to raise enough money to get a new dog so they reached out to the local businesses for help. Kroger took this project underway and came up with a fundraiser where they sold paper dog bones for $1 a piece to anyone willing to donate to the cause. The dog bones were sold at the registers during the month of November with all proceeds going to the K-9 unit. On Friday, Mt. Orab Kroger presented Chief Mount with a check for the money raised to help with any expenses for the upkeep of the new dog. This check along with other fundraisers the store has put together has raised nearly $2,000 for the police department. The police Association have also signed up for Kroger Community Rewards which is a program through Kroger for any nonprofit organization. When you sign up with your Kroger plus card and pick which organization you wish to donate to Kroger will donate 1% of the money you spend at Kroger to that organization. If you wish to add this to your Kroger plus
2014 budget which was provided to council at its Jan. 13 council meeting. “I haven’t received any questions or changes on the budget so I’m assuming everyone has read it and is okay with it,” Ashmore said. “We can either pass it tonight or we can have a first reading, it doesn’t matter to me, it’s up to council.” Councilman Daniel Dragoo said he hadn’t had a chance to review it completely so he asked council to have a first reading before approving it. Council also had its second reading of an ordinance which raises the in-town perthousand gallon water rate by $1 and the out-of-town rate by $1.20. Ashmore reminded council that the rate increase will become effective 30 days after its third reading by council. Councilwoman Roberta Sidwell expressed some concerns over the rate increase hitting residents at a time when many of them have been forced to let their taps drip because of the low temperatures to keep them from freezing. “I am just a little afraid that some people may have
higher than usual water bills because of letting their taps drip,” Sidwell said. “I’m glad we will have another water reading before it goes into effect, that was my only concern.” Ripley Council will meet again on Feb. 11.

ALL THINGS NEW Revelation 21:5: And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.” One of these days God is going to make all things new. The one sitting on the throne here is our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ who is KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS! In John 1:3 it tells us: “All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.” Verse 1 states: “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” Jesus was there with God the Father and with the Holy Ghost at the beginning of creations. And now here in Revelation He is seated on the throne and He said: “...Behold, I make all things new...”. Here we are at the beginning of the new year 2014. I remember back in 1999 when people said all computers would crash and the whole world would be in a mess. They told us to put food in store and prepare for a mass shut down. Well, the year 2000 came and went and nothing happened that had not happened before. There have been many false predictions and guess work going on in this age that when the real truth, according to the Bible, is given people don’t know whether to believe it or not. But the Bible clearly states that God is going to make all things new. There will be no more old dilapidated things. Years ago I got laid off from General Motors. We had 8 children and we had an old 53 Chevrolet. One Sunday morning it was way down there below zero and that old car just would not crank over. We were all ready to go to church and I said to my wife: “I got to be there this morning.” Now, I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS TO ANYBODY, but I took an old tire and set it on fire and slid it right under the engine of that old Chevy! That engine got as warm as summer time! I pulled that blazing tire out with a rake, got in that Chevy and she started right up. However, I did burn some of the chrome off the bumper, and some paint. It did not look too good before but I sure didn’t help the look of it any! So I told my wife that we needed a new car because that old car had gone as far as it
DR. CHARLES SMITH MT. ORAB BIBLE BAPTIST CHURCH WWW.BBMTORAB.COM
wanted to go. I also needed a job. So we prayed for a job and a brand new car. Do you know what faith is? It is simply this: believing. Some people have faith in just about everything except God. Well, we prayed to God believing that God would answer and God delivered! A few weeks went by and I got a job offer that came with a brand new company car that you could use like your own! I worked for them for 6 years and in that time I had 5 new cars to use. It sure was nice to have something new! But, someday God is going to make all things new! He said: “... for these are true and faithful.” Verse 1 of Revelation 21 tells us that there will be a new heaven, which is the atmosphere around the earth, and a new earth for the first heaven and the first earth are passed away and there will be no more sea. Not only that, but in verse 2 it tells us that there will be a new Jerusalem. That’s not all; look at verses 34: “And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God. And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. Christians, lift up your heads; look what we have to look forward to! A brand new beginning, without death, sorrow, or pain! Glory be to God forever and ever, Amen! Who could not possibly want that? The only condition is that you must be saved. Believe in the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ and call upon His name for the forgiveness of your sins and the salvation of your soul! You too can have that new beginning!

Don’t add distracted driving costs to your Homecoming
BY Madison Burton High School Senior and Girl Scout Ambassador It is winter homecoming season! It is time to go pick out that perfect dress, or that shirt and tie. Just remember that when you are on your way home from the mall, you need not be so hasty in telling everyone what you have bought. That text or Instagram photo can wait until you get home. Every day, we teens hear about how dangerous texting and driving is, but we do not always take those warnings into consideration. However, do you teens know that by reading that text message you are 23 times more likely to crash? Compare that to driving the length of a football field at 55 miles per hour with your eyes closed. Texting is not the only form of distraction. Answering your cell phone, reaching for something, reading (including a map), applying make-up, or even thinking about that devastating break up are all distractions. They take your mind away from driving. When talking on a cell phone, drivers fail to see 50 percent of the environment around them, so while you’re telling your best friend about your date to homecoming, you may pull out in front of a car you did not see. In Ohio, it is against the law for those under the age of 18 to drive while using a wireless electronic device. (http://bmv.ohio.gov/texting_ban.stm) This includes texting, talking on your cell phone, using a GPS system, tablets or laptops, and using Bluetooth communications. Failure to obey this law will result in a fine of $150 and your license revoked for 60 days. A second violation will result in a fine of $300 and your license revoked for a year. If you are 18 years of age and older, it is illegal to read, write or send a text message while driving. Consequences of disobeying this law will result in a

fine of $150. According to www.distraction.gov, the government’s official website for
distracted driving, 3,328 people were killed in 2012 from crashes involving distracted driving. In order to bring awareness to this number and hopefully help reduce it, I decided to use this subject as the main focus of my Girl Scout Gold Award. I created a video presenting facts and examples of distracted driving in hopes that both teens and adults will become aware of the dangerous actions that are involved. I ask that you watch my video at http://youtu.be/5Fhb9l2Fan k and share it with your friends and family. Let us put an end to distracted driving and remember that the text message can wait.

Brown County Pioneers - 71st anniversary services set to honor ‘Four Chaplains’ The Frazee family The Brown County Genealogical Society is reintroducing this column which first appeared in The Brown County Press over 30 years ago. The Society’s goal is to spark reader interest and encourage participation in researching one’s family roots at the local level. If you have ever used Ancestry.com or other genealogical search websites, have you wondered where all the Brown County-related information is derived? Much of it comes from primary documents and records maintained at the county government offices and from the extraordinary collection of research materials available 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 County Press, the BCGS will introduce you to a Brown County Pioneer family who may be related to you whether or not your last name is FRAZEE. John Frazee, Jr. born February 16, 1770, and his wife, Esther Shipman, born January 6, 1774, were married in Madison County, New Jersey, in 1793. Esther was the daughter of Jabez Shipman and Phoebe Rogers of Morris County, New Jersey. John and Esther likely left New Jersey about the same time as other Frazee kin and founder, Obediah Denham, who all settled in the new village of Bethel in Clermont County, Ohio. According to the H. H. Beers and Company History of Brown County, Ohio, (1883), page 522: “John Frazee was one of the first settlers of (Clark) the township. He located on Survey No. 2939 in 1803 or 1804 and raised a large family.” That family consisted of the following children: John, Eri, Jabez, Joseph G., Abigail, Ann, James, Henry, and Charlotte. John Frazee served as private under Captain Jacob Boerstler’s Third Regiment, Ohio Militia, Clermont County, during the War of 1812. His widow, Esther, received a bounty land warrant, No. 31025-80-50, for his service. John Frazee died in 1833 in Clark Township, Brown
LINKS AND CLUES BROWN COUNTY GENEALOGICAL SOCIETY County. His widow, Esther and son, John, were the executors of his estate, Probate Court Case #7441. At the time of the 1840 Ohio census, Esther Frazee resided near her son, James, and daughter Abigail (Israel) in Bethel, Ohio. Their neighbors were Mr. and Mrs. Jesse Grant, parents of the
future General and President, Ulysses S. Grant. You could be related to the Frazee family and not even know it. COME VISIT US!

In commemoration of the dramatic sacrifice of four armed forces chaplains during World War II, The American Legion will observe Religious Emphasis Week, Feb. 2-8 and Four Chaplains’ Sunday, Feb. 2, Chaplain Bill Graybill of Post 180, Georgetown has announced. Legion officials and clergymen are planning special programs for the observance of the 71st anniversary of the sinking of the USS Dorchester and the heroism demonstrated by four valiant chaplains. Of the many thrilling incidents of World Way II, probably none stirred the nation more deeply than the story of these four men of God whose heroic efforts
were credited with the saving of more than 200 lives. These four: a Jewish Rabbi, a Roman Catholic Priest, and two Protestant Ministers, calmly issued life-belts to American servicemen aboard the troop transport after it was torpedoed on Feb. 3, 1943. When the supply of life preservers was exhausted, the four chaplains removed their own life belts and gave them to four soldiers and then stood calmly on the sinking ship, their arms around one another’s shoulders, and their heads bowed in prayer. Inspired by the heroic deed of these four Chaplains, The American Legion each year marks the anniversary of their supreme sacri-
fice through special services and programs throughout the nation. This annual observance, as part of the Legion’s ‘Service to Goad and Country’ program, helps bring new emphasis to the religious aspects of our American heritage and the need for continuing adherence to the basic religious concepts upon which America was founded. Everyone is invited to this years observances to be held on Saturday, Feb. 1 at St. George Church, located at 501 E. State Street, Georgetown at 6:30 p.m. and Sunday, February 2 at 2 p.m., at the Ohio Veterans Home, located at 2003 Veterans Blvd., Georgetown.

Serving Clermont County
All Clermont County addresses mapped by GPS
The Brown County Press - Sunday, February 2, 2014 - Page 9
Project will help with county’s safety services BY KRISTIN ROVER Sun Staff
Clermont County residents may begin recognizing a black truck with a Digital Data Technologies Inc., logo driving slowly along roads throughout the county. While the vehicle does not stand out as much as a Google Maps car, its purpose is similar, to map all of the roads and addresses throughout the county using GPS technology. “What they do is drive all of the roads in the county,” Kelly Perry, GIS administrator for Clermont County, said. “They GPS a road center line and pick up any addresses along the way.” Perry said the county hired DDTI to complete the project and were able to pay for the services using grant funds.
“This is all through a grant from the state,” Perry said. “The program is called the Location Based Response System.” Perry said the program was started by Ohio Department of Transportation. Perry said the state provided $449,500 and the county contributed $16,888 to complete the project. She said many of the counties in Ohio already use GPS mapping technology, however, many do not have up-to-date addresses. She said one of the most important benefits of the new data is for emergency situations. “It's primarily helping residents from an emergency services standpoint,” Perry said. “We work with Clermont County Dispatch, and if they get a call that comes in, they have map-
ping. If that address doesn't pop up, they have to use other means. This will hopefully make that much easier.” Perry said the process also helps standardize the technology throughout the state, and provides important data to other county offices. Mitch Pinkston and Jimmie Fout make up one of the DDTI teams currently driving the roads in the county to collect information. Pinkston said they began the program in southern Clermont County and have been working their way north. “In Clermont County we are about 75 percent through field collection and about 50 percent overall,” Pinkston said about the progress they have made.

The Glen Este wrestling team didn’t need an acclimation period with Chris Redmond when their former head coach Jason Roush dawned a different shade of purple, filling the head coaching vacancy at Elder High School. After all, Redmond, previously the Glen Este Middle School coach, had helped shape the varsity wrestlers earlier in their career. “I graduated from Glen Este High School in ‘96 and have been involved in the junior high for the past 10 years,” Redmond said. “I jumped down to the junior high because my teaching position is in the junior high. When Roush decided to go to Elder, the coaching staff asked me to move up because I’ve coached all these kids at the junior high level. “I have a really good relationship with them and we didn’t want to throw a wrench into the mix with technique. I’ve really enjoyed it.” Redmond said the success that the current varsity wrestlers experienced under his tutelage in junior high along with his familiarity with their wrestling styles has made the move seamless. The first-year head coach was also adamant about the support he’s received from his staff, the alumni and the parents throughout the program. Returning five district qualifiers from last year’s Eastern Cincinnati Conference championship team, expectations for the Trojans as the season winds down are very high. “We’re off this week, then next week is league,” Redmond said. “That’s going to be a huge meet for us with Loveland (the secondranked team in the city). We haven’t seen them head-tohead yet, so that’ll be interesting.

The Trojans, under first year head coach Chris Redmond, are looking to repeat as Eastern Cincinnati Conference champions.
It’s going to be an absolute war. Loveland is stacked, so we’re looking to have a lot of fun.” Redmond also explained that with the ECC incorporating a round-robin-style tournament for each weight class as opposed to a bracket-style tournament that a true league champion will be crowned. As opposed to year’s past, each wrestler will face more opponents en route to a league championship. Among those Redmond has tapped to contend for league titles are four of the five returning district qualifiers. The fifth returner, Seth Crissman at 285, was injured at the Coaches Classic. A torn labrum and cracked humerus will keep the sophomore heavyweight out for the remainder of the season. Starting from the bottom, Gage Branson at 113 pounds has high expectations both in the league meet and beyond. “(Branson) has been very dominant on the mat,” the coach said. “He’s fallen short of his goal the past couple of years of going to state, but he’s focused and become more offensive and aggressive.” At 126, Brandon Smith has a 31-7 record on the season with 18 pins. Matt Si-
curella at 138 is the Trojans lone returning state qualifier and has a combined record of 21-6. He has wrestled a bit at 132 as well. Rounding out the returning district qualifiers, Matt Kennedy at 182 has accrued a 21-10 mark and Redmond expects him to return to districts and possibly qualify for state. Among those the coach expects to join the four previous qualifiers is senior Max Davis at 145 pounds. Davis was unable to finish last season due to injury, but healthy this season, Redmond believes he can qualify for state. At 120 pounds, the Trojans’ Tristin McGrath has the potential to come out of a stacked weight class and get up to districts, Redmond said. Also, at 195 Nate Stone has a shot to turn a disappointing freshman season into a breakout sophomore campaign. Glen Este has a pair of dual matches between the ECC next weekend, Feb. 1 that Redmond said he would like to use as warmups for the sectional. The Trojans will wrestle in Division I at Hamilton High School on Feb. 14 with the first matches to begin at 6 p.m.

I had a chance to have a positive effect on the lives of young people.” Bubp added that he felt his career and life experience would also help him on the bench. “I’d like to spend the next six years taking what I’ve learned over thirty years in the Marine Corps, taking what I’ve learned as a police officer and a prosecutor and former judge
and state legislator and use it to help our young people. I want to get involved with local people who are successful. Men and women who lead by example who can help some of these kids learn how to be responsible and productive young men and women.” Bubp said he would like to help local schools out by taking court on the road if necessary. “One thing I would like to do to help our schools out is bring the court to them when possible instead of them having to come to
us. That way, students and teachers can talk to us if they need to and they won’t miss as much class time.” Bubp added that he hopes that the voters of Brown County will give him the chance to use professional skills he has learned in three decades of public service. “I’ve been a public defender, a prosecutor and a judge, and then eight years in the state legislature. I would like to use that experience to improve the lives of the citizens of Brown County.”

Kasich’s communications department representative Rob Nichols, the governor is very aware of the problems facing Ohio schools regarding calamity days. “Governor Kashi is urging the Ohio General Assembly and the Ohio Department of Education to work together on legislation providing a one-time increase in the
number of days that schools can take off because of snow or bad weather,” Nichols said in a press release. “Kasich said a one-time increase of just a few days is needed since so many Ohio schools have used or are close to using their allowable calamity days.” So the big questions facing our schools are...should the state give school districts

to make it a more gradual change and we’re also looking at what happens at change of ownership. As it stands right now, at change of ownership, there is no subsidy.” Local Realtor Bert Thomas of Huff Realty said that the changes will hurt the housing market along the Ohio River in Brown County. “These changes are going to strongly affect the market in a negative manner”, Thomas said. “Those flood insurance increases will make it much more difficult to sell houses at market value.” Wenstrup said he thinks
that those most affected by the rate change deserve a chance to participate in the process of changing the rules. “It would make more sense if we had more local involvement with local and state governments who actually know the area and can truly assess the risk instead of having one plan out of Washington”, Wenstrup said.

more calamity days and should the missed time be made up in the summer or through extended school days? According to Georgetown Exempted Village School District’s website, on Jan. 24, the board of education approved a make-up blizzard bag day. “Currently our calamity day make up plan is to attend school on March 24, April 17, April 18, May 30 and June 1,” said Chris Burrows, superintendent of Georgetown School District. “The blizzard bag approach allows us to avoid up to three additional days of school. Should we surpass three additional snow days we would then be required to extend the school year into the designated days in May and June”, Burrows said. All Brown County schools have adopted the ‘blizzard bag’ approach.

According to Tim McKeown, Chairman of the Board of the Brown County Chamber of Commerce, SSCC was chosen because the school exemplifies the management skills that the award is symbolic of and it’s commitment to the future of Brown County. Representative from SSCC accepting the award included Paul Hall, Lisa Copas, Russ Brewer, Dr. Peggy Chalker, Jim Buck, Mindy MarkeyGrabill, James Bland, Dr. Nicole Roades, Dr. Ryan McCall, Dr. Kevin Boys, president, and Mike Pell. Ray Becraft was then asked to come up to the podium to be presented the 2013 Lifetime Achievement Award by McKeown. Becraft, a Ripley school graduate, became mayor of Georgetown in 1996 where he considers his most significant milestone was refurbishing the old Gaslight Theater. After serving four years as mayor he moved on to become village administrator so he could follow up with projects he had introduced during his time as mayor. “After about two years

we finished those projects and I retired again,” Becraft said. “It was then that I became involved with the Chamber of Commerce, and am still active in and help the chamber.” Becraft has served on several boards including Grow, Inc., the Brown County Foundation, the Solid Waste Board, ABCAP and the Brown County Rural Water’s Wellhead Protection Committee. He is also a member of the Georgetown Lions Club and a former member of the board of the Ohio Valley Regional Development Commission. “Ray was an obvious choice,” McKeown said, “He has done so much for the chamber and the community that this is a long overdue recognition.” Becraft graciously thanked everyone at the event for the award on behalf of himself and his wife Joyce who has been by his side all the way. Both SSCC and Becraft received certificates of appreciation from State
Representative Doug Green, State Senator Joe Uecker and a representative from Congressman Brad Wenstrup’s office, Kaci Compton. The breakfast for nearly 200 people was catered by the Country Inn Restaurant.

Mootispaw pleads guilty, gets five years CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 James Mootispaw was shot to death on June 7 in Mt. Orab, allegedly by Trzeciak at the Hyde Park Apartments. Trzeciak was arrested in White Cloud, MI by Michigan State Police on June 9 and charged with murder. Mt. Orab Police Chief Bryan Mount said last June that investigators believe the murder took place after the Mootispaw brothers took money from Trzeciak during what Trzeciak thought was a drug deal. “We believe that the Mootispaws were engaging in a conspiracy to steal cash
from Trzeciak”, Mount said. “We believe their plan was for Darrell Mootispaw to park a car as a getaway vehicle and for James to take the cash and run while pretending to go inside and get marijuana for Trzeciak. Trzeciak followed James Mootispaw and confronted him. That’s when the shots were fired.”, Mount said. Trzeciak was indicted on Murder charges in Brown County Common Pleas Court on August 7. He faces a minimum of 18 years in prison, including a three year gun specification.
Rep. Wenstrup: We need a President willing to work with Congress, not around Congress Congressman Brad Wenstrup (R-OH) made the following comment on the State of the Union Address: “Our nation is strong, but Ohioans and Americans are gripped by a feeling of uncertainty. To rebuild an economy that works for everyone, Americans need a President who is willing to work with Congress, not threatening to work around it. “The American people deserve a serious commitment to unleashing the power of the American economy. Yet, President Obama is doubling down on big government, committing to more regulations, restrictions, and constraints on our workers, businesses, and entrepreneurs. “Unfortunately, with policies like Obamacare, our families and patients continue
to face uncertainty over the future of their health care, as doctors and policies being are dropped despite the President’s promises. “I urge the President to work with Congress to find solutions for the American people. That’s what we were all elected to do.” Congressman Brad Wenstrup represents Ohio’s Second Congressional District in the House of Representatives. #### Wenstrup Votes to Protect Life: No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act Passes House A week after the 41st March for Life, Congressman Brad Wenstrup (OH-2) and the House of Representatives voted Tuesday to pass the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act (H.R. 7) by a
vote of 227 to 188. H.R. 7 makes the long standing Hyde Amendment, which only bars taxpayer funding for abortion in annual spending bills, permanent law. Wenstrup, a lifelong physician who voted for the bill, remarked, “I’m proud that the people’s House is standing strong for life. President Obama’s health care law created new paths for taxpayer dollars to fund abortions, and this bill would once and for all end that practice. ” Wenstrup, who represents Eastern Cincinnati and southern Ohio, notes the legislation also prohibits any government subsidized health care plans under the new Obamacare exchanges from funding elective abortions. H.R. 7 next heads to the Senate.

Valentine’s Day Fun Fact
"Love" is a powerful word that describes one of the most potent human emotions. The word is believed to have evolved from the Proto-IndoEuropean's word "leubh," which described care and desire nearly five thousand years ago. The word was incorporated into Old English as "lufu," a noun meaning "deep affection" and a verb "lufian" meaning "to be very fond of."

Valentine's Day facts and superstitions
Many traditions are followed on Valentine’s Day, all in the name of St. Valentine. Still, people may not understand why such customs are upheld. Much of the history of Valentine's Day and St. Valentine himself is shrouded in mystery, and much of what's widely accepted is inaccurate. To set the record straight, here are some facts about the holiday. • Valentine's Day is believed to have originated from a celebration in Rome during the fifth century. This celebration paid tribute to St. Valentine, a Catholic priest. Other historians surmise it was a way to "Christianize" the pagan holiday of Lupercalia, which was a fertility festival. Included in the traditions were boys and girls drawing names from a box and exchanging gifts. • The Catholic Church acknowledges at least three different saints named Valentine or Valentinus. • All of the stories surrounding St. Valentine -whether they are disputed or not -- paint him as a sympathetic and heroic individual. • Valentine's Day greetings have been popular from the Middle Ages onward, though they have been usually verbal in nature. • The oldest known written valentine still in existence today was a poem written in 1415 by Charles, Duke of Orleans, to his wife while he was imprisoned in the Tower of London following his capture at the Battle of Agincourt. • Valentine's Day is celebrated in the United States, Canada, Mexico, the United Kingdom, France, and Australia. • Valentine's Day and Mother's Day are the most popular holidays to give flowers. • According to Hallmark, women purchase 85 percent of all valentines.

Rosselot snapped the school’s all-time scoring record that stood since 1992.

Rosselot snaps FPHS scoring record Lady Rockets soar to 15-0 record BY Wade Linville The Brown County Press
In yet another dominating court performance this season, there were six Fayetteville-Perry Lady Rockets to shoot for double figures in scoring in a dazzling 10927 victory over the Whiteoak Lady Wildcats, Jan. 27. The Lady Rockets rose to a 15-0 overall record and a 10-0 record in Southern Hills Athletic Conference play, but the big story of the night was a 42-point performance by Fayetteville-Perry senior Makayla Rosselot that marked a personal singlegame high in scoring and lifted her to the top of the all-time scorers’ list at Fayetteville-Perry High School. Rosselot needed 41 points to tie the previous record of 1,794 career points set by Kelly Hicks in 1992, and it was in the final two minutes of the Jan. 27 win that she would sink a set of free throws to break Hicks’ record by a single point. The Jan. 27 win came after the Lady Rockets had not played an official contest since Jan. 16. Fayetteville-Perry head coach Toby Sheets was certainly pleased to see his crew of Lady Rockets put on perhaps their best offensive showing of the season to score a season team high of 109 points. “Not playing since Jan. 16, I wasn’t sure how rusty we would be,” said Sheets. “I got the question answered early, with the ladies making 14-of-16 shots in the first quarter. I continue to say that this is the most explosive group of scorers I’ve ever coached.” Fayetteville senior Megan Eyre fired for 11 points, sinking four shots from inside the arc and one
three-pointer with 80-percent shooting from twopoint range. Fayetteville junior Carly Burroughs recorded a double-double with 13 points and 13 rebounds. She also rose for two blocks and dished for three assists. Fayetteville junior Lincoln Smyth also recorded a double-double against the Wildcats with 12 points and 10 rebounds. Fayetteville’s senior guard Alex Carson shot for 17 points to go along with six assists, four steals, one blocked shot, and three rebounds. Fayetteville junior Emily Burroughs finished with 10 points, four rebounds, one assist, and one steal. As a team, the Lady Rockets shot 48-percent from the field (42-87) and connected on 15-of-17 attempts from the foul line (88-percent). The Lady Rockets exploded to a 32-7 lead before the first quarter reached an end. The Lady Rockets kept up the rapid scoring pace in the second quarter to outscore the Lady Wildcats 27-6 in the frame, and at halftime break it was the Lady Rockets leading by an impressive margin of 59-13. The Lady Rockets continued to dominate the court in the second half, holding the Lady Wildcats to just 14 points in the entire half while shooting for a total of 50 points. Rosselot was awarded the game ball by Sheets after breaking the scoring record. The Lady Rockets looked forward to a busy week. On Jan. 30 they were scheduled to take on the West Union Lady Dragons in a league contest on the road, and on Jan. 31 they planned to return to their home court to CONTINUED ON PAGE 16

Eastern boys rise to 12-3 record BY Wade Linville The Brown County Press The Eastern Warriors upped their overall record to 12-3 by strolling to a 75-55 victory over the Manchester Greyhounds Jan. 24 on their home court, and then topping the Hillsboro Indians 47-44 in Monday’s nonleague hoop action. The win over Hillsboro marked the Warriors third in a row. With a 12-3 overall record and 5-1 record in Southern Hills Athletic Conference play, the Warriors have found a great deal of success on the court this season; but Eastern head basketball coach Rob Beucler said there is still much room for improvement. “We’re trying to improve,” said Beucler. “Patience and shot selection are things we really need to work on. We’ve got a lot of work to do…learning to take care of the basketball down the stretch.” The Warriors got off to a hot start in the Jan. 24 win over Manchester, jumping to a 23-11 lead in the first period. The Greyhounds rallied in the second quarter, outscoring the Warriors 2019, but the visiting Manchester squad still trailed by 11 at halftime break. Backed by commanding offensive performances by seniors Nathan Scott and Riley Prine, the Warriors were able to expand on their lead in the second half to come away with an easy 20point victory, their 11th of the season. Scott finished with 29 points, scoring 14 in the first half and 15 in the second half. He buried 11-of20 attempts from the field,

which included two-ofthree shooting from beyond the arc, and connected on five-of-five attempts from the charity stripe in an impressive offensive showing. He also hammered the boards for 12 rebounds to record a double-double in the win over the Greyhounds, and dished out four assists. On the defensive end, Scott grabbed three steals. Prine fired for 27 points to aid the Warriors in the win over the Greyhounds. He drained 12-of-20 at-
tempts from the field and three-of-eight attempts from the foul line. Prine also pulled down five rebounds to go along with one assists and one steal. Scott and Prine were the only Warriors to score in double figures in the win over Manchester. “I thought we were able to take advantage of our size, but we still need to improve on shot selection and being patient on offense. I give credit to Manchester…they shot the ball well,” said Beucler. It was Scott leading the CONTINUED ON PAGE 17

BY Wade Linville The Brown County Press The Fayetteville-Perry Rockets rose to a 5-3 record in Southern Hills Athletic Conference play and an overall record of 106 by cruising to a 74-61 victory over the West Union Dragons in a Jan. 24 league contest at Fayetteville.

points in the Rocket victory. D.J. Iles led the Rockets with 24 points, while Fowler finished with 23 points. Fayetteville sophomore Max Iles also shot for double figures against the Dragons, finishing with 14 points. The Rockets held a narrow 14-12 lead at the end of the first quarter, but outscored the Dragons 21-8 in the second period en route to a 13-point victory.
The Rockets claimed the victory over West Union after suffering a 66-60 loss to the Lynchburg-Clay Mustangs on the road Jan. 17. The Rockets were scheduled to be back in action Friday, Jan. 31, as they venture to Manchester High School to take on the Greyhounds. The Rockets are back at home Feb. 4, playing host to the 0-16 Whiteoak Wildcats for an SHAC contest.
BY Wade Linville The Brown County Press The Ripley-UnionLewis-Huntington Blue Jays ventured to Whiteoak High School Jan. 24 to escape with a 55-27 win over the Wildcats. It was homecoming night for the Wildcats, a night in which the Jays led 25-16 at halftime and never looked back. After a break from games
due to recent cancellations due to snowy and cold conditions, Ripley head coach Marty Adams felt his Jays took a while to find their rhythm in the bout at Whiteoak. It was in the third quarter when the Jays burnt up the nets, outscoring the Wildcats 22-4 in the frame. “For not being in the gym very often, I felt we came out a little flat,” said

Adams. “But, overall, we played pretty well.” The Jays upped their overall record to 7-5 and their record in Southern Hills Athletic Conference play to 3-2 with the Jan. 24 win over the Wildcats. The Wildcats dropped to an overall record of 0-11 with the recent loss to the Jays. While the Jays have performed better than many SHAC expected this season, Adams said his team still needs to show improvement on finishing strong against some of the conference’s tougher opponents. “We’re staying with the top teams, we just haven’t got that signature win,” said Adams. “Like the loss to Fayetteville, where better decisions in the fourth quarter could have made a difference.” Junior guard Hunter Hamilton led the Jays in scoring in the win at Whiteoak with 17 points. Senior Andrew Inskeep contributed 10 points to Ripley’s side of the scoreboard, while junior teammate Austin Whitt finished with seven points. Ripley junior Christian Bradford fired for six points to help the Jays take down the Wildcats. Whitt leads the Jays in scoring so far this season with an average of 12.7 points per game. The Jays were scheduled to be back in action Jan. 31, as they played host to the Eastern Warriors, who stood at a 12-3 overall record after defeating the Hillsboro Indians on Monday night. Hunter Hamilton has averaged 9.7 points per game this season, while Inskeep has averaged 8.8 points per game.

BY Wade Linville The Brown County Press The Georgetown Lady GMen's winning streak hit five games as they ventured to Batavia High School on Jan. 29 to come away with a 42-19 victory over the home-standing Lady Bulldogs. “I think we're peaking at the right time,” Georgetown head coach Bernie Cropper said of his crew following the win over Batavia. “We're trying to play a little more transition basketball, and I think we're getting better defensively.” The Lady G-Men held a narrow 9-8 lead at the end of the first quarter, but they managed to heat up in the second quarter to rack up 11 points while holding the Lady Bulldogs scoreless in the frame. At halftime break, it was the Lady GMen leading 20-8. The Lady G-Men returned from halftime break to remain hot in the third quarter. While George-
town's sturdy defense held the Lady Bulldogs to just three third-quarter points, the Lady G-Men fired for 16 points in the period to up their lead to 36-11. The Lady Bulldogs managed to outscore the Lady G-Men 8-6 in the fourth quarter, but the rally attempt came too little, too late for the home team on this night. Leading the Lady G-Men in scoring against the Lady Bulldogs was junior center Kayla Seigla with 11 points. Seigla buried five of six shots from the field, pulled down 10 rebounds, dished out three assists, grabbed four steals, and rose for one blocked shot in an allaround excellent performance. “When she is aggressive on the boards, she is a really good player,” Cropper said of Kayla Seigla after her performance against the Lady Bulldogs. Georgetown seniors Megan Hatfield and Mackenzi Carrington ended the night with nine points
apiece. Carrington also pulled down five rebounds, passed for two assists, and grabbed two steals. Georgetown sophomore Rachel Gibbons finished with five points, while junior teammate Ally Dowd shot for four points to help the Lady G-Men take down the Bulldogs. Georgetown senior Rebecca Whitaker and junior Morgan Gast finished with two points apiece. The Lady G-Men stood at an overall record of 14-3 and were flawless in Southern Buckeye Athletic/Academic Conference National Division play at 7-0 after the win at Batavia.

Another Lady Bronco to perform well in the win over the Barons was junior guard Morgan Fischer, who fired for seven points to go along with three assists, four rebounds, and a steal. The Lady Broncos got off to a good start in the Jan. 23 league bout against the Lady Barons, jumping out to a 16-8 lead in the first period of play. The Lady Broncos outscored the Barons 12-5 in the second period, and at halftime break it was the Western Brown girls leading the way by a score of 28-13. The Lady Barons rallied in the third quarter, outscoring the Lady Broncos 18-8 in the frame to slice the Western Brown lead to 3631. The Lady Broncos returned to the court in the fourth quarter to outscore the visiting Lady Barons 11-7, securing a nine-point victory. Leading the Lady Barons in scoring was Elise Whitesell with 18 points. The Lady Broncos were back in action Wednesday, Jan. 29, venturing to Goshen High School to suffer a narrow 47-46 loss to the home-standing Lady Warriors, marking their second league loss of the season.

The Western Brown Broncos dropped to an overall record of 4-10 and a 1-4 record in Southern Buckeye Athletic/Academic Conference American Division play by falling to the Amelia Barons in a league contest at Western Brown High School on Friday, Jan. 24. The Broncos faced the Barons with their leading scorer, sophomore Eli Fulton, watching from the sidelines with a mild injury. Fulton was expected to return for the Broncos' next outing. The Broncos trailed by just five, 9-4, after the first quarter of play, but the Barons heated up in the second frame to outscore the Broncos 17-8. At halftime break, the Broncos trailed 26-12. Backed by impressive play from postman Tommy Hacker, the Barons dominated the second half of play, outscoring the Broncos 20-11 in the third quarter and 16-12 in the fourth quarter to secure a 27-point victory. Hacker didn't miss a shot the entire night, draining 10-of-10 attempts from the field, which included one three-pointer. Hacker kicked off scoring for the game, knocking down a bucket from close range to give the Barons an early 2-0 lead. Western Brown senior Jarred Haggerty then floated in the paint for a score to tie the game at two apiece.

in the second, coming through with a bucket in the paint to put the Barons up 11-4. An assist by Bennett for an easy score by Shakur Bennett sliced the Amelia lead to five, but the Barons were quick to respond with a field goal of their own to restore a seven-point advantage. Western Brown's Akio Purdon drove in the lane for a score to leave the Broncos trailing by just five, 13-8, but another bucket by Hacker lifted the Barons to a seven point advantage with 5:40 to go in the first half. Another field goal by Oshay Bennett cut the Amelia lead to 15-10 with just over five minutes remaining in the second quarter, but once again the Barons responded quick with a field goal, this time by Garrett Weaver, to put Amelia up by seven. With 4:43 to go in the second quarter, it was Bennett draining a jump shot to once again cut the Barons lead to five points, but once again it
was the Barons answering quick, as Hacker drove to the hoop for a score to restore a seven point lead for Amelia. The long-range shooting heated up for the Barons late in the first half, and threepointer by Carson would expand their lead to 22-12. A hit free throw by Carson upped the Barons' lead to 11, and then a threepointer by Carson with under a minute to go in the second quarter would leave the Broncos trailing 26-12 at halftime break. The Barons remained hot in the second half, utilizing their size advantage late in the game to help them escape Western Brown High School with their 13th victory of the season. The Barons stood at an overall record of 12-2 and a Southern Buckeye Athletic/Academic Conference American Division record of 4-1 after their Jan. 24 win over the Broncos. The Broncos hoped to snap a five-game losing streak as they ventured to Norwood on Jan. 31.

The Capitol Square Review and Advisory Board (CSRAB) and the Capitol Square Foundation announce the 2014 Great Ohioans. The 2014 honorees were presented by the Capitol Square Foundation and unanimously approved by the twelvemember CSRAB. The two honorees were selected from nominations submitted by individuals and organizations throughout Ohio. The 2014 Great Ohioans are: Annie Oakley, superstar sharpshooter and educator, and Jerri Mock, first woman to fly around the world. “This year we honor two individuals who were pioneers in their fields. Both honorees gained international recognition for their extraordinary accomplishments. These two women have inspired, and continue to inspire, future generations of Ohioans with their skill and drive; they have set themselves apart as true global trailblazers,” said CSRAB Executive Director William Carleton. The Great Ohioan Award commemorates Ohioans who have played a significant role in an event or series of events of lasting significance in World, American or Ohio history. To be selected for the Great Ohioan Award, the nominee must have resided in Ohio for a minimum of five years. In addition, at least 25 years must have passed since the event in which the nominee participated is being
commemorated. ANNIE OAKLEY Annie Oakley was born August 13, 1860, in Darke County, Ohio. Her birth name was Phoebe Anne Mozee. Oakley received a limited formal education, but she became an expert markswoman at a young age. She assisted her parents in paying off the mortgage on the family farm by selling wild game that she killed in Cincinnati. By the mid-1870s, Oakley had earned a name for herself thanks to her shooting skills. In 1875, she won a contest against Frank Butler, a marksman who earned a living by performing in circuses. Butler convinced Oakley to travel with him across the country, demonstrating her skills. The two performers eventually married. In 1885, the couple joined "Buffalo Bill" Cody's Wild West Show. Oakley became known as "Miss Annie Oakley, the Peerless Lady WingShot." In her act, Oakley routinely split a card in two edge-wise with a single shot from thirty paces. She shot cigarettes out of her husband's mouth and, on a tour of Europe, even performed this same act with Crown Prince Wilhelm, who eventually became Kaiser Wilhelm II, the leader of Germany. Oakley also shot dimes thrown into the air. Oakley remained with the Wild West Show until 1901, when she became partially paralyzed in a

planes smaller than 3,858 pounds. As a result of her flight, President Lyndon Baines Johnson awarded Mock the Federal Aviation Administration's Exceptional Service Decoration. In 1975, Mock's Cessna was donated to the National Air and Space Museum. For her contributions to flight, the Federation Aeronautique Internationale honored Mock with its Louis Bleriot Medal, the organization's highest honor. Mock was the first woman and also the first U.S. citizen to receive the medal. Mock leads an active life beyond flying. She served as producer of Youth Has Its Say, the first television program dedicated to allowing children to voice their opinions. She authored several magazine articles and a book, and Mock also wrote and directed a radio program, Opera Preludea. Mock resides in Quincy, Florida.
JERRIE MOCK Geraldine Fredritz Mock was born on November 22, 1925, in Newark, Ohio. Mock, better known as "Jerrie," was the first woman to fly around the world. On March 9, 1964, Mock took off from Columbus in her plane, the "Spirit of Columbus, The "Spirit of Columbus" was a Cessna 180. Mock's trip around the world took twentynine days, eleven hours, and fifty-nine minutes, with the pilot returning to Columbus on April 17, 1964. She had flown 23,103 miles. On this flight, Mock had set the round-theworld speed record for

Ohio Department of Agriculture today released grant applications for the 2014 Agricultural and Rural Community Outreach Program (ARCOP). The program, jointly administered by the Ohio FFA Foundation, Ohio FFA Association and the Ohio Department of Agriculture, helps local FFA chapters finance worthy community development projects. Local FFA chapters can submit project proposals until March 15 to the Ohio FFA Foundation. A committee will then select projects to receive grant funds ranging from $750 to $2,500. Grant winners will be notified by April 1. “FFA provides valuable, life-shaping experiences for our young people,” said Ohio Department of Agriculture Director David T. Daniels. “The Ohio Department of Agriculture is proud to partner with Ohio FFA Foundation and Association for a second year to help students fund community projects that teach them the value of giving back to their communities while gaining experience as agricultural leaders.” Last year, 13 local FFA chapters were awarded funding for projects in a variety of areas including
agriculture and emergency safety training, agricultural science, animal welfare, and targeting hunger needs of school children and rural populations. “With the success of the 2013 projects, Ohio FFA is looking forward to working with our partners to help fund another round of diverse, worthwhile community projects,” said FFA Foundation Director Melissa Bell. One notable project from the Waterford FFA in Washington County created an “Agriculture is Science” Day. The goal of this program is to expand elementary students’ knowledge of science, enabling them to become more aware of its relationship with agriculture and natural resources. FFA members are in the process of developing 15 educational stations to be taught at a 4-H camp, Camp Hervidad, to 120 second and third grade students during a six- hour program. All stations are linked to Ohio Department of Education academic content standards, raising the academic relevance of the event. The program is funded by a $38,000 grant provided by the Ohio Department of Agriculture through the Ohio Rural Rehabilitation fund.

What a January it was! The blowing snow made drifts in new places on our property! “First time drifts” appeared at our front door, our basement door and on our deck. I have been feeding the birds twice a day. Kitty has seen lots of activity in front of the sliding glass door. The doves actually come up and have a staring contest with Miss Kitty. There have been a few starlings appear at the feeders this week and at one point I had a grapevine wreath full of them! We are hoping to head out today on our snowshoes before the next Arctic blast hits. We have a state park close by that has a protected trail around a beautiful marsh. I have tucked my animal tracks book in my back pack and hope to get some photographs. Everyone always came to the farm for Thanksgiving as I was growing up and some of the men would go hunting. My dad was never interested in hunting, (maybe the thought of skinning something just didn’t appeal to him). Recognizing animal and bird tracks doesn’t come easy for me, so I am constantly taking photographs and referring to Animal Tracks of Ohio written by Tamara Eder. The author reminds us that we may never get close to some of the most elusive animals in the Ohio wilderness, except through their tracks. “Remember,” says Eder,
Provided/The Brown CounTy Press
above are some ‘mystery’ bird tracks.
“you are following in the footsteps of the unseen-animals that are in pursuit of prey, or perhaps being pursued as prey.” Eder encourages trackers to look beyond the single footprint and search out others. Do not rely on the dimensions of just one print, but collect measurements from several prints to get an average impression. Even the prints within one trail can show a lot of variation. I find it handy to put a six-inch ruler in my pocket so that my “estimates” are more accurate. Follow the trail for some distance-it may give you some vital clues. The trail may lead you to a tree, indicating that the animal is a climber, or it may lead down into a burrow. This part of tracking can be the most rewarding, because you are following the life of the animal as it hunts, runs, walks,
jumps, feeds or tries to escape a predator. Most importantly, keep in mind that if you track quietly, you might catch up with the maker of the prints. This is something I find very difficult to do, especially on snowshoes! I hope you will plan to attend the February 20th 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 - 7:30 p.m. My houseplants are showing some stress from the cold temperatures, but Miss Kitty’s catnip is thriving. Have you checked your plants? Are they healthy? Do they need to be transplanted? That would be a good excuse to do a little digging in the dirt!
The annual tobacco payments were supposed to run through this year. These payments were part of the buyout that was signed into law in October of 2004. The payments have arrived in bank accounts or as a check for the past several years during the month of January. The payments hit a snag. In fact those payments appeared to be subject to sequestration (the "automatic" reductions in spending authority that were authorized by the Budget Control Act of 2011). At the Burley Expo, Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky spoke about this situation. According to the Senator the payments will now come, but they will be delayed. So do not look for the payments in the near future. Treat for Lice The conditions have been just great for feeding lots of hay and burning lots of wood in the past few weeks. It has also been ideal conditions for lice to be a problem in the herd. As the temperatures have been cold, cattle group up and lice multiply. Lice come in two forms, biting lice and sucking lice. Hay and most other feed stuffs are cheaper than they were the past couple of years, but the cost is still too high to be feeding parasites. Lice and worms both can be greatly reducing your gain and profit. There are several pour products that will kill both biting and sucking lice. In most cases a second treatment may be needed to get good control. The first treatment will kill the lice,
DaviD Dugan OSU EXTENSION SERVING ADAMS, BROWN AND HIGHLAND CO.
but most likely not the eggs, so a second treatment is recommended. Consult your local veterinarian for more advice for controlling parasites. Part of that discussion should probably be based on avoiding resistance. Worms have become more of a problem with resistance in recent years, as the same products have been used over and over. Timing is also important for best results. There are several signs of lice on livestock. One sign might be that the animals just do not appear to be maintaining body condition. Another sign is constantly rubbing on trees and or fences. Cattle will rub their hair of on parts of their body when lice are a problem. Sometimes the rubbing becomes damaging to buildings and fences. Weather and Truck Cleanup With the crazy winter that we are having in the Ohio Valley this year, it is a good idea to pay attention to your vehicles. The salt and other products used to melt ice and snow can have a negative impact on your car or truck. Many wash this off the vehicle at the first sign of temperatures and dry roadways. The clean shinny appearance just makes it all look better, so it is all good, right? The answer is probably not.
The point I am trying to make is the fuel lines and brake lines are exposed to the damage more than the part of the vehicle that is painted. Over time this can cause real problems, especially for farm trucks hauling loads. Take the time to clean the undercarriage, too. It will pay in the long run. Some of the automatic car wash systems will do a good job at reducing the amount of salt on the part of that we can’t see. Ohio River Valley Agronomy Day This event is held at the Mason Co. Extension Office in Maysville, KY. The program includes updates from UK Specialists for Tobacco, Vegetables, Corn, Hay and Pastures and Ponds. The program is free of charge, but you are requested to contact the Mason Co. Extension Office if you plan to attend at 606-564-6808. The program is on Wednesday, February 5 beginning at 9:00 a.m. Lunch is provided. GAP Training for Tobacco Growers There will be training for GAP (Good Agricultural Practices) for burley growers. Dates have not yet been set, but part of the process will include obtaining a Grower ID and Registration. This is part of the program so it is unified for all companies that require this training. I will have more on GAP in the coming weeks. You can register by going to http://gapconnections.com

OWNER: LINCOLN NATIONAL TRUST CONDUCTED BY:
Reps Green and Landis introduce Birthday and Motorcycle Road Guard Certificate Bill anniversary wishes State Representatives Doug Green (R-Mt. Orab) and Al Landis (R-Dover) recently introduced legislation that will create the motorcycle road guard certificate and training program to allow certified individuals to function as traffic controllers. House Bill 406 is intended to make large organized rides safer and less frustrating for both the motorcyclists and other road users by performing a clear function in making bikes visible at the intersections and allowing the group through and out of the way of other traffic in an expe-
dient and organized manner. The guards will be recognized as an authority to stop and direct traffic for motorcycle group rides until it is safe for the vehicles to proceed. “I am pleased to be part of this effort to provide a much-needed training and certification program that I believe can provide a safer environment for this type of event,” said Rep. Green. “Through greater organization, higher visibility and increased awareness, we can make roads safer for all motorcyclists.” American Bikers Aimed Toward Education (ABATE), a not-
for-profit organization dedicated to preserving the rights, improving the image, and promoting safe operating practices of Ohio motorcyclists, supports this legislation. The American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) supports the motorcycle road guard certificate and training program. “Many of these organized rides are charitable in nature; some are even escorting fallen American heroes back to their hometowns,” said Rep. Landis. “Ensuring public safety is of the utmost importance, not only for motorcycle riders, but all motor vehicles.”

Page 24 - The Brown County Press - Sunday, February 2, 2014
BY Jennifer Stewart-Hamblen UC AHEC Program HEALTH-UC University of Cincinnati 114 E. State Street Georgetown, Ohio “Fans Don’t Let Fans Drive Drunk” That’s more than just a tag line for the latest call to the public to prevent impaired driving. It is a plea from the U.S. National Highway Traffic
Safety Administration, Brown County Safe Communities, National Football League (NFL), Techniques for Effective Alcohol Management (TEAM) Coalition, and local law enforcement. And it is also life saving advice. According to agency statistics, alcohol-impaired crashes claimed a life every 53 minutes in 2011. On Super Bowl Sunday alone,
36 percent of fatalities from motor vehicle crashes were connected to drunk driving. In protecting yourself and others on the roadways, try using the following NHTSA safety tips: Designate your sober driver or have an alternate transportation plan before the party begins. If you don't have a designated driver, ask a sober friend for a ride home; call a cab, friend or family
member to come and get you; or just stay where you are until you are sober. Use your community's sober ride program. Never let friends leave your sight if you think they are about to drive and have had too much to drink. Always buckle up – it's still your best defense against drunk drivers. Feel a little safer because you’re not going to a Super Bowl party but hosting one? Did you know that you can be held liable and prosecuted if someone you served alcohol ends up in a drunk-driving crash? So, do your part to make the roads safe by:
• Making sure all of your guests designate their sober drivers in advance, or help arrange alternate transportation • Serve lots of food and include lots of non-alcoholic beverages at the party. Stop serving alcohol at the end of the third quarter of the game and begin serving coffee and dessert. Keep the numbers for local cab companies handy, and take the keys away from anyone who has had too much to drink. According to NHTSA, 9,878 people were killed in drunk driving crashes in 2011. Let’s do our part in re-
ducing the number of people killed by remembering “Fans Don’t Let Fans Drive Drunk”. For information on NHTSA’s Buzzed Driving is Drunk Driving Campaign please visit www.nhtsa.gov The Brown County Safe Communities Program is funded by the U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the Ohio Department of Public Safety/Ohio State Highway Patrol-Ohio Traffic Safety Office.
