THE BROWN COUNTY

Engle gets two years in prison BY Wayne Gates The Brown County Press A former Youth Pastor at the First Baptist Church of Mt. Orab will be going to prison for two years. Charles Engle was sentenced by Common Pleas Judge Scott Gusweiler on Oct. 15 after he pleaded guilty in August to two sexrelated charges involving a 15 year old church member. Engle admitted to two counts of Unlawful Sexual Conduct With a Minor before Gusweiler on August 15. He will also have to register as a Tier II Sex Offender. The designation requires Engle to report his residence to local authorities every six months for the next 25 years. Gusweiler also sentenced Engle to five years of probation after his prison sentence and ordered that he have no contact with the victim or her family. Engle was originally charged with three counts of Unlawful Sexual Conduct with a Minor and three

counts of Sexual Battery. All are third degree felonies. He faced the Sexual Battery charges because he was acting as a cleric and the victim was a member of the congregation at the time of the alleged offenses. Gusweiler had strong

words for Engle during the hour long sentencing hearing. “The suffering of everyone in this room behind the rail is palpable...because of you.”, he said at one point. Gusweiler also said that it appeared that Engle did not show enough remorse for the

condition of the victim and her family in letters that he received from Engle and others. “(The letters) never once said ‘what was the impact on the victims family. What was the impact on the child? What was the impact on the mother of that child who blames herself for not seeing it and preventing it? What was the impact on the father who actually got the victim involved in the extra curricular activity...and now feels responsible for putting his loved one in the hands of a beast?”, he said from the bench. Gusweiler then spoke of the future of the victim. “These cases are always tragic. And the problem is the consequences of the conduct don’t get realized until we see what happens with the child and her relationships in the future. Can she learn to trust again? I pray she will.” He also referred to the impact of the case, and its exposure in the media, on the local community.

“It impacts the entire community. It’s not just your just, this victim, your family. How many other parents are going to read this and say ‘how do I protect my kid?’ Do I have to put them in bubble wrap if I can’t even send them to church?”, Gusweiler said. Engle took the chance to express remorse when he was given the chance to speak in court. “I am sorry for my actions and what I did to (the victim), to the Bohrer family and to my family and to the church. I have asked my God to forgive me. I’m hopeful someday that they will be able to forgive me for my actions and for the destruction that I have caused.”, he said. Engles’ wife Michelle also spoke, saying that her family had suffered because of the case as well, and asked Gusweiler to consider house arrest or probation for Engle. Assistant Prosecuting Attorney Zac Corbin then made the case for a strong sentence for Engle because

of the abuse of trust of the victim and her family. He began by reading from a letter that Engle had written to the victim in December of 2012 when she was 14 years old. “Have you ever had the dilemma of knowing what’s right and what’s wrong and wanting to do what’s wrong?”, Corbin read. “That’s how I am with you. There is absolutely no way or reason that I should be in love with you, but even when I think about trying to treat you like any other person in the (youth) group I go crazy....I am caught up in you. My love for you has taken over and controls me.” Corbin told Gusweiler that Engle had the chance to do the right thing at that point and chose not to. “He knew in December of 2012 that he had this dilemma. And Judge, that would have been the time to seek some counseling. That would be the time to show some remorse for what you’re feeling.” CONTINUED ON PAGE 14

The Georgetown Village Council is giving members of the Georgetown Life Squad Association until November 1st to vote on a merger with the Georgetown Fire Department. Safety Committee Chairman Art Owens stated, “If the Life Squad Association chooses not to cooperate with the village on this merger, the Village of Georgetown will proceed with creating its own emergency medical ambulance service beginning, January 1, 2014.”

Council voted unanimously to approve the proposal from the committee. Just prior to a vote by council, councilwoman RaeLena Morrison asked why such short notice was being given to an organization that had served the community for the past 38 years. She asked if it would be possible that the November 1 deadline could be pushed back to November 30. Owens told Morrison that too much had to be done before January 1 so he felt the November 1 deadline should stand. Just before the meeting began, Sherri Ridner, mem-

ber of the Georgetown Life Squad and treasurer for the organization, was called out on a run. Before leaving the meeting, she left a letter that she had written to be read aloud by Stacy Hatten concerning the merger of the independent life squad with the Georgetown Fire Department. Her letter was in direct response to a special meeting of the safety committee held October 8 by the safety committee meeting. According to Georgetown fire Chief Joey Rockey, and village solicitor, Jay Cutrell, the issue of merging the current Life Squad with the Fire

Department has been in discussions for at least four years. But at the October 10 meeting, council called for a resolution to the issue. Portions of the letter read aloud before council included responses with some comments made by Chief Rockey at the safety committee meeting. Ridner stated in her letter that during the recent committee meeting, Chief Rockey had made some false statements that she wanted to clarify. The letter said explained that: • the squad had only CONTINUED ON PAGE 14

Hiking the Appalachian Trail, one man’s journey BY Martha B. Jacob The Brown County Press Zachary Adamson found his own way to cope with feelings of loss and loneliness by spending six months alone, walking the Appalachian Trail. After graduating from Georgetown High School in 2007 Zachary, of Mt. Orab, said he went to college for “about a second” before joining the U.S. Airborne Army Rangers. Adamson said he spent five years, one month and 22 days in the Rangers and served one deployment in Iraq and three deployments in Afghanistan. “I served my country because I wanted to,” Zachary said, “During that time in the service I made good friends, and I lost good friends. When I got out in March earlier this year, I worked with my dad about a month, but I had so many things on my mind, it was a very difficult time. I needed to be alone to clear my head. I needed to try to understand why I was one of the guys who made it home.” Zachary wears a metal bracelet engraved with the names of two of his best friends who lost their lives during deployment. He came up with a plan. On April Fools Day of this year he headed out alone to walk the Appalachian Trail which runs through 14 states and is nearly 2,200 miles long. “As a ranger I was accustomed to walking a lot and I knew I had the skills

to take care of myself,” Zachary said. “I wanted that time to myself but I took the memories of all my friends I lost with me, every step of the way.” Zachary said he started out at Springer Mountain in Georgia on April 1. By the second day he had made friends with other hikers from among the 300 who started the trip that same day. “Three hundred people

started out that day, but by the 4th day, there were only 80 of us left,” Zachary said. “I made friends with one guy and we traveled together a few days, but then we got separated. But we joined back up later in the hike. I had a guide book with me that let me know where shelters, small towns, supplies and water sources could be located.” Zachary said he went through five pairs of shoes

during his 6-month hike. He endured day after day of storms and rain as he traveled through Virginia. He walked through snow, hail, and strong winds.” When asked what was his very worst day during the hike, Zachary responded with “Well, there were a couple of really bad days, but the worst was probably when I was going through Connecticut, I ended up in the emergency

room of a hospital. I was only there long enough to get some medication then I was on my way again. I had Lyme disease, an ear infection and strep throat. Yeah, that was a pretty bad day. But after a few days I was back on the trail.” On another occasion Zachary said he had to visit an emergency unit because he discovered blood in his urine. He had become deCONTINUED ON PAGE 15

Another Mt. Orab business steps up for police K9 unit BY Martha B. Jacob The Brown County Press Members of the Mt. Orab Police Department have busy for the past few months trying to raise a total of $15,000 for the purchase of a trained K9 dog unit and special training and equipment for Ptl. Mike Dearing, who will partner with the dog. “A well trained K9 unit can walk around any vehicle and sniff out drugs,” said Officer Dearing. “We worked a few weeks with a K9 unit and an undercover agent from the Bureau of Criminal Investigation, (BCI). “Working with that K9 unit convinced us all at the department that we desperately needed our own dog.”

Dearing said that the businesses in Mt. Orab, as well as several individuals have been very generous with funds to help with raising the $15,000. Most recently, the National Bank and Trust in Mt. Orab donated a check for $1,000 to the police department’s K9 fund. Presenting the check was Crystal Engle, assistant vice president and marketing manager of the Mt. Orab branch. “The National Bank and Trust Company has been a proud member of the Mt. Orab community for over 30 years,” Engle said. “One of the greatest rewards of being a community bank is working with the community to help in its growth and development.”

She continued, “When we heard about the Mt. Orab Police Department raising funds for a K9 unit, I knew we needed to get involved. We pride ourselves on serving the community.” National Bank and Trust is headquartered in Wilmington, Ohio and operates 22 branches in counties in Southwest Ohio. The Mt. Orab office is located at 452 West Main Street. The police department has raised nearly $7,000 to date and will continue to hold fundraisers for the next few months in its efforts to raise $15,000. The Mt. Orab Police Association would like to thank everyone in the community who have helped with raising these funds.

Sardinia residents could save money on electric bills BY Martha B. Jacob The Brown County Press In 2010 the Village of Sardinia became a part of ‘Municipal Aggregation’ saving the village offices a substantial amount of money in electricity costs. Now the village is offering the same opportunity to the residents of Sardinia, if they choose to join. Representatives from Volunteer Energy Services, Inc., Municipal Aggregation, spoke briefly October 14 at the council meeting. Municipal aggregation will allow the village to negotiate for the purchase of electricity, find the lowest rate, and pass it on to residents in that village. Fred R. Holmes, director of municipal aggregation and Glenn Dempsey, energy specialist with Volunteer Energy attended the meeting. Sardinia voters will have the opportunity to vote on the issue on November 5. “Electric aggregation is on the ballot,” Holmes said. “We’re here tonight to answer any questions council might have about the aggregation. If the issue doesn’t pass in November, then we’ll have nothing to talk about, but if it does pass we will have a lot to do in a very short time.” Holmes explained that two public hearings will have to be scheduled, council will have to have three readings of the ordinance, followed by a 30 day waiting period for certification from PUCO (Public Utilities Commission of Ohio). After that, a service agreement will have to be drawn up and then more hearings will have to be scheduled. “This is not a difficult process, it’s just a lengthy process,” Holmes added. Residents can opt-in or opt-out of the program. In other business, Sardinia Police Chief Jim Lewis briefly discussed the bullet proof vests and grant funds ordered for his department. He told council that at least half the cost of the

vests would be paid out of grant funds, and officers were each putting in $100 towards the purchase, which would eventually be reimbursed to them. “The last time I talked to the company where we’re purchasing the vests,” Chief Lewis said, “they had been back-ordered 60 days. We ordered 15 vests and at least one officer has been measured.” Following Chief Lewis’ report, Mayor Todd Bumbalough reported to council that himself and village administrator Tim Mock will be contacting the contractor and the construction company that has been working on the South Main Street Project. According to Bumbalough the project is well past the 45 day completion date and no one has not been working at the site for over two weeks. “We are very unhappy that this Main Street project isn’t done yet,” Bumbalough began, “I can understand when some thing happens to hold up construction, but the party who got the bid says they can’t do their part until the party that was contracted to do the work does their part.

Joshua Strunk sentenced to prison In August 2013, a two count indictment was filed against Joshua Strunk. The indictment charged Count One, Illegal Assembly or Possession of Chemicals for the Manufacture of Drugs, a felony of the third degree, having a maximum penalty of thirty-six (36) months in prison; Count Two, Conspiracy, a felony of the third degree, having a maximum penalty of thirty-six (36) months in prison. Brown County Court of Common Pleas Judge, Scott T. Gusweiler accepted a plea of guilty to Count One. Upon a motion by the State of Ohio, the remaining count in the indictment was dismissed. On September 30, Judge Gusweiler sentenced Mr. Strunk to thirty (30) months in the Ohio Depart-

“It’s just a circle of blame, so Tim and I will be making a conference call tomorrow and give them until this Friday to get something done or we will take action.” In other business Mayor Bumbalough asked council for approval to allow the administrator to lower the reservoir by five feet or more so that the village doesn’t have to continue to pay $500 a year for state inspections. Council approved the actions. Bumbalough updated council on upgrades needed to the municipal building. “I have been obtaining estimates on doing these needed upgrades and reviewing what we need to do to save the village money on fuel oil and electricity,” the mayor said. “These upgrades will be financed through a loan which the village has chosen to work with. We’ll be working with Dallas Hurt.” Bumbalough said that because of the age of the building, the renovations could save the village as much as 50% or better per year. He added that he should have all the estimates in and bring them to council for approval at the next meeting. Council also briefly discussed the possibility of allowing Mark Ellison, (M.E. Ellison Company) to erect a cremation niche

(vault) at the Sardinia Cemetery, at no cost to the village. The vault would accommodate 48 cremations. For each one sold, the village would receive a percentage of the cost, approximately $200. Bumbalough also told council that the Sardinia Church of Christ had recently agreed to dedicate the water and sewer line to the village which will help with the sewer project for S.R. 32. An ordinance will be prepared for the November meeting. Council then set Thursday, October 31 from 6 to 7:30 p.m. as ‘Trick-orTreat’ night in the village.

Letters to the Editor

Learn the facts about water plant Dear Editor, I believe that the Village of Aberdeen has so much potential for prosperity and positive growth but our focus has been diverted by political infighting. To remedy this problem, we must elect or reelect council members who are willing to work together to achieve positive outcomes. We must abandon the pattern of blindly following any certain political clique and we must be careful not to elect “shell candidates” (those who will take instruction from a source known to be the root cause of constant turmoil in the village) who have no real perception or understanding of the issues that we face. Voters must realize that they bear a responsibility to research the issues and become familiar with how each issue will affect them and vote accordingly. The village has been in turmoil for several years in regard to the proposed water plant and there has been much false information spread to the unsuspecting public. I am going to try to dispel some of these false comments. It has been said that we cannot afford the proposed new water plant but this is false. The bond that were secured for this purpose are still effective until December 31, 2013 (but have a life span of 27 years) and we have been paying the bond payments for two years and still have sufficient funds available. We also will be receiving $600,000 from the Estate of the late Louis Bramel. The IRS also provided tax incentives worth $1.7 million which pays for 45% of the interest on the project. The village water system brings in approximately $32,000 a

month ($400,000 annually). Recent water rate increases were put in place to off-set excessive spending and high legal costs caused by the contract breach. It has been said that it would be cheaper to join a water supplier but this isn’t necessarily so. The rates of the water company in question are higher than what we are presently paying and there is simply no guarantee that these rates won’t rise dramatically once we forfeit ownership. Local businesses will be forced to increase consumer pricing to offset the increased water usage costs. Also, our village tap fees are $1,200 while the water company’s tap fees are over $3,000 and this would tend to stifle investment and growth in the village. It has been said that the EPA required us to install water meters and does not want us to build. The EPA could not require the village to install water meters, this is beyond their mandated federal authority. The EPA can issue any opinion but they have absolutely no federal mandate to interfere with the construction of any water plant. The primary responsibility of the EPA is to enforce clean water standards and to ensure we are compliant. The EPA has raised concerns about the age of our current water system and has had concerns with some noncompliance issues but this can be attributed to the lack of proper preventative maintenance and the lack of proper attention by local government, this can be remedied by attention to detail and by the election of representatives who will do the job correctly. It has been said that if we sign the agreement between a

faction of the council and the bondholder then the problem is settled but this is false. The real problems commence when this agreement is approved, a faction of village council breached a legally valid contract and were sued by contractors. The punitive damages hearing will resume in late November, the damages could top $1.2 million and since the village doesn’t have the funds to pay them they could fall upon the tax bills of homeowners and property owners. Note: the estimated damages figure includes prospective IRS penalties on interest that will have to be repaid. It has been said that we cannot afford a required water maintenance supervisor for a new water plant but this is false, the village is currently required to employ a licensed operator and the current operator will meet the future licensing requirements. It has been said that we cannot afford the water tower replacement or repair but this is false. The proposed new water treatment plant does not include this tower upkeep but the new water plant does include a companion reservoir. The village can use the windfall from the Estate of the late Louis Bramel as well as loans based upon their annual water income of $400,000 to secure proper funding for necessary repairs. It has been said that a feasibility study supports selling the village water system and this sounded true but the numbers that determined this conclusion turned out to be false. The feasibility study

was flawed because it failed to include the $1.7 million tax deferment from the IRS. I also spoke to the author of this feasibility study and he confirmed that the village could afford the new water plant but the cost may be higher (increased project costs due to delay) due to the actions of a faction of village council in stopping the normal construction schedule. It has been said that if the village joins a local water provider that all village water lines will be replaced as well but this is false, the potential water provider will simply sell water to the village using existing lines. It has been said that the land which contains the new village wells is now not for sale by the owner but this is untrue, the owner has agreed to sell the necessary land and supports resumption of construction of the new water plant. I support resumption of the water plant construction since it seems to be the best possible solution to solution to ending all future contractor lawsuits that may hurt the people of the village. I also believe that is imperative that we control our own destiny and future by controlling own natural resources. Remember, “You’ll Never Miss the Water ‘Til it’s Gone!” Please support Jerry Applegate, Phyllis Bishop, Jay Castle and Bobby Meadows on November 5th, we will PROTECT THE PEOPLE from financial liability.

Its steel framework soundly in place, Southern State Community College’s Mt. Orab Campus is right on schedule to open August 2014. Quandel Construction representatives Nathan Minnich-Weber and Todd Clevinger updated the college’s Board of Trustees on progress at the site. “I’m pleased to say we’re vertical; we’re all the way topped out with our steel,” said Minnich-Weber, at the Oct. 9 regular board meeting. A June groundbreaking ceremony kicked off construction of the two-story, 50,000-square-feet complex at the intersection of State Route 32 and Brooks-Malott Road in Brown County’s Mt. Orab.

“It’s amazing how far we’ve come since groundbreaking, even despite some weather setbacks,” he said. Southern State’s expansion project has been several years in the making. In 2010, the college invited an architectural firm to complete a facilities assessment. The study revealed that South Campus in Fincastle required a significant reinvestment to bring the facility up to current standards, which led to the decision to first pursue a replacement campus in Brown County and later a new campus in Adams County. Following the construction update, the Board of Trustees passed a resolution to authorize the divestiture of

President’s Report, SSCC President Dr. Kevin Boys announced that he had been appointed by Governor Kasich as co-chair of the Capital Bill Funding Commission. Dr. Boys and co-chair Dr. Roderick McDavis, President of Ohio University, succeed E. Gordon Gee, retired President of The Ohio State University, who led the effort in 2012. “It’s an honor to have been invited by the Governor,” said Dr. Boys. “Even more so, it’s an acknowledgement that within higher education the state’s community colleges get equal footing.” The commission was established in 2012 and, according to last year’s summary: “Governor Kasich presented Ohio’s higher education community with an unprecedented opportunity. Anticipating the realities of an austere capital construction budget, the Governor asked higher education leaders to think differently about the task of allocating the state’s scarce resources … Ohio’s college and university leaders embraced the challenge to act collaboratively—instead of competitively—to best serve all 11 million Ohioans.” DELONG EARNS FACULTY EMERITUS STATUS Following a recommendation by the Southern State Faculty Senate, the title of Faculty Emeritus has been posthumously granted to Jim

CARROLL FOR WESTERN BROWN

School

Please allow me to introduce myself to you. My name is Tamberlyn (Masters) Carroll. I have resided in the Western Brown Local School District since 1977 when my parents, Richard and Marcella Masters moved into the Hamersville community. My husband, Tom Carroll and I are both graduates of Western Brown High School Class of 1981. My children, Barry Wallace Jr. and Mande (Jeff) Lang are Western Brown graduates. Grandson, Karson Lang, is a Kindergarten student at Mt.Orab Elementary. My 21 years of experience working in the Western Brown Treasurer’s office has given me extensive knowledge and insight regarding school finances. After a thorough evaluation and analysis of school finances and the prevailing economic situation of the school system, it is my philosophy that reductions should be considered to the utmost degree before making drastic cuts involving personnel and services. Request for additional tax monies should be considered as the last resort. As a board member I will exert my energies 110% toward making sure all students receive the best possible education; exercise extreme caution in assuring school monies are being expended in areas most beneficial to the students and school system; listen to the patrons of the school district and work toward resolving any problems that may arise.

Your support on November 5th will be greatly appreciated. Paid by Tammy Masters Carroll Committee, 312 E. Main Street, Mt.Orab , Ohio 45154

dren and youth from all backgrounds and situations has consistently demonstrated that the more developmental assets young people acquire, the better their chances of succeeding in school and becoming happy, healthy and contributing members of their communities and society. “As a result of this program,” continued Cropper, “finding productive citizens need to possess 30 of the 40 assets in order to be a contributing member of society. “The asset focus on internal and external characteristics that are important for each individual. Students and the community will be engaged through a wide variety of means in and out of the classroom in support of the program.” Cropper said that fifth graders in all Brown County schools were surveyed to see present strengths and opportunities for development. A summary of the 40 developmental assets program includes four categories of external assets including: • Support (family support, family communication, adult relationships, caring neighborhood, caring school climate and parent involvement in schooling); • Empowerment (community values youth, youth as resources, service to others and safety); • Boundaries and Expectation (family boundaries, school boundaries, adult role models, positive

peer influence and high exceptions); • Constructive Use of Time (creative activities, youth programs, religious community and time at home). The program also stresses four categories of Internal Assets including: • Commitment to Learning (achievement motivation, school engagement, homework, bonding to school and reading for pleasure); • Positive Values (caring, equality and social justice, integrity, honesty, responsibility and restraint); • Social Competencies (planning and decision making, interpersonal competence, cultural competence, resistance skills and peaceful conflict resolution); • Positive Identity (personal power, self-esteem, sense of purpose and positive view of personal future). Cropper, along with Beverley Holsted, have been conducting a College Access Event at the county fair and this year expanded it to include emphasis on the 40 Developmental Assets®. “This year fair goes at the Brown County Fair participated in a college board event which was designed to help them plan for the future, which is one of the assets,” Cropper said. “They were also involved in a scavenger hunt that promoted the external assets of community involvement by featuring members

in leadership roles in the Junior and Senior Fair. Southern State Community College was also a key partner.” Cropper said that each school district is addressing the challenging issue by aligning curriculum, offering special leadership classes, setting behavioral goals and articulating these goals with their students. “Coordinators have been hired in each of the schools to foster the program at the local level,” added Cropper.

many people, the hike represented a particularly special significance. “Emily Jackson ran in memory of her grandmother, who passed away one year ago,” Richmond said. “Jackson commented, while looking up to her grand-

mother in heaven, ... “thank you, for having God send down some rain today...it was refreshing to feel during the run and represented the tears that I’ve held in all week.” “Nearly 60 memory lane signs wer purchased,” Rich-

mond continued, “It was a way for participants to memorialize the loss of a loved one along the hike route. Even a Hospice of Hope patient came out to observe and cheer on the faithful staff members who visit her home to care for her each week. She said she wouldn’t have missed it for the world.

We are extremely thrilled with this years outcome.” Richmond offered a special thanks to event sponsors, supporters and those that provided in-kind support for the annual event. “Please log on to Hospice of Hope Ohio Valley’s facebook page to see comments and pictures from the hike.”

The annual Hike for Hope Run/Walk was held Sunday October 6, one of the rainiest days of the year so far. But the weather didn’t dampen spirits as over 150 walkers and runners participated in the event. According to Erin Richmond, provider relations specialist with Hospice of Hope Ohio Valley, the event was a huge success. “The run/walk began and ended at Merchants National Bank in Mt. Orab,” Richmond said. “The torrential rains and less than desirable weather conditions didn’t stop participants from walking or running in memory of loved one(s) or to show support for Hospice of Hope Ohio Valley, which has provided hospice care in our community for over 25 years.” She continued, “It literaily started sprinkling just as the hike got underway. By the time most participants arrived to the turn-around at Western Brown High School, it was a total downpour and remained that way until participants returned back to Merchants Bank.”

Last year’s event generated over $5,600 which was used for quality end-of-life care for Hospice of Hope Ohio Valley patients. “We are very pleased to announce that this year’s hike raised nearly $7,000 which is a record high for

POWER 2

I left off last week in John 20:17 with Jesus talking to Mary Magdalene to: “...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.” She told them but they did not believe her. According to Luke 24:13 later that same day (remember that the first day of the week was 3 days after the crucifixion) 2 of the disciples were on their way to a village called Emmaus. They were talking about everything which had taken place and the Bible tells us that while they communed and reasoned together Jesus Himself drew near and went with them. Verse 16 states: “But their eyes were holden that they should not know him.” Jesus asked them what they were talking about and why they were so sad. Cleopas answered and said: “...Art thou only a stranger in Jerusalem, and hast not known the things which are come to pass there in these days?” Jesus said: “...O fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken: Ought not Christ to have suffered these things, and to enter into his glory?” Verse 27: “And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, he expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself.” As they walked along they came to the place where they were going to stop for the evening. Jesus, however, made as if to go further. They urged Him to stay with them and setting down to eat Jesus took the bread, blessed it, broke it, and gave it to them. The Bible says that instantly their eyes were opened and they knew Him and He vanished out of their sight. They immediately went back to Jerusalem, found the eleven gathered together, and told them that they had seen the Lord. Verse 36 says: “And as they thus spake, Jesus himself stood in the midst of them, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you.” He showed them His hands and feet and then asked for something to eat. However, Thomas was not with them when Jesus came. When they told him what happened he said: “...Except I shall see in his hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and thrust my hand

into his side, I will not believe.” Eight days later he got his proof (John 20:26-29)! Jesus knew exactly what Thomas had said! Further still, He knows exactly what you say, and do, and think! And no doubt Jesus made sure that Thomas did exactly what he said he had to do before he would believe! Jesus said: “...Reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side: and be not faithless, but believing.” Thomas said: “My Lord and my God.” You better believe that he believed in the resurrection! All his doubt was gone! It is almost as if Jesus was having fun with His resurrection. I believe we won’t truly know what fun really is until we get to heaven. When Jesus appeared to the eleven he had asked for food and then ate it. Can you imagine a place where you can eat and never gain any weight, never get tired, never get sick, and never again go to a funeral? Can you imagine a body that will never grow old, never die? Jesus showed Himself over and over again to His disciples proving that the resurrection was real. In fact Acts 1:3 tells us: “To whom also he shewed himself alive after his passion by many infallible proofs, being seen of them forty days, and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God...” John 20: 30-31 states: “And many other signs truly did Jesus in the presence of his disciples, which are not written in this book: But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.” Jesus told Thomas: “...because thou hast seen me, thou has believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.” We believe in a living God. Without belief in the resurrection, there is no salvation!

Vietnam Traveling Wall stirs emotions Replica memorial stops in Clermont

Thousands of people walked the length of the Vietnam Traveling Wall, a replica of the wall located in Washington D.C., and view the names inscribed into the panels Oct. 10-13 in Union Township. The wall was part of the American Veterans Traveling Tribute, which includes the traveling wall and the Cost of Freedom Tribute displays. “It’s just an experience when you see all the names,” Joe Hill, an Anderson Township resident, said about the tribute. Hill said his brother was killed in the Vietnam War. He said he has been to the wall in Washington D.C., but is glad they were able to bring the traveling tribute to the Cincinnati area. “This is absolutely wonderful,” Hill said about the memorial. “It gives a chance for people who can’t travel to see it.”

The tribute was escorted into the township by more than 300 motorcycle riders Oct. 9. An opening ceremony was held Oct. 10 to welcome residents to view the tribute at Veterans’ Memorial Park in Union Township. “I want to welcome back the Vietnam Veterans’ Traveling Tribute,” Union Township Trustee Tim Donnellon said during the opening ceremony. “We are glad to have it back.” Donnellon said the wall was first brought to the township in 2003. He said they estimated more than 20,000 residents viewed the wall while it was at the park that year. Donnellon said when talking to veterans of all wars, it is amazing how their stories are similar, but Vietnam veterans remain different from others. “The difference is how we, as Americans, responded when they came home,” Donnellon said. Donnellon said the differ-

ence is obvious when you watch a veteran come home today. “Unfortunately, we weren’t able to do that then,” Donnellon said. “So, let’s do that now. Welcome, and welcome home.” The West Clermont By Request Choir performed during the opening ceremony. Several guests spoke while the tribute was in the county including Glenn Welling, vice president of operations for the USO, Joseph Johnston, national commander of Disabled American Veterans, and more. Robert W. Gumbert Sr., the father of soldier Robert Gumbert Jr., who was listed as missing in action in Vietnam, placed the wreath in front of the memorial to honor POW and MIA servicemen during the opening ceremony. Gumbert, who has been to the wall in Washington D.C., said the traveling tribute is beautiful.

Alternative Sentencing Center dedicated Ribbon cutting ceremony held Tuesday, Oct. 15 BY KRISTIN ROVER Sun staff

Clermont County commissioners, Sheriff A.J. “Tim” Rodenberg, several county judges, and officials with Talbert House gathered for the ribbon cutting ceremony at the new Clermont County Alternative Sentencing Center Oct. 15. The alternative sentencing center is located in south wing of the Clermont County Jail and will be used to address drug and alcohol abuse as well as mental

health for select individuals in the criminal justice system. “This project is really a collaborative effort,” Commissioner David Uible said about CASC. Uible said the Talbert House is leasing space in the jail to use as the alternative sentencing center, and is also using jail services for offenders that are in the program. In turn, Uible said, offenders who would normally be in jail are getting treatment and assistance

through the program, which costs less than incarceration in jail. Uible said Sheriff Rodenberg should be commended for taking the project on, as well as judges in the Clermont County court system, and officials with the Talbert House, the organization running the center. Clermont County Municipal Court Judge Anthony Brock said CASC provides judges with a lower-cost alternative to jail, while also keeping offenders away from drugs.

Goshen’s Scott Nichols runs through a hole on a fake punt attempt early in the third quarter of the Warriors’ 41-14 loss to Norwood on Oct. 10. Nichols rushed for 112 yards and a touchdown on the night.

Goshen loses under Thursday Night Lights, look to bounce back vs. Lions

BY CHRIS CHANEY Sun staff

As the winner of Star 64 WSTR’s Thursday Night Lights Game of the Week, the Goshen Warriors were able to put their program on display for a live television audience for the only time this season. However, a dynamic Norwood offense combined with a lack of sustaining offensive drives for the Warriors saw head coach Mark Slagle’s team drop to 4-3 on the season with the 41-14 loss. “It was a new experience for us with a short week of preparation,” Slagle said of playing on Thursday night as opposed to the usual Friday night kick off. “I think the kids enjoyed the opportunity to play on live television. The rest of the school, the band and cheerleaders — everyone who was involved — enjoyed it. Down the road, when the years go by, the kids will have that to look back on, but the game itself didn’t go the way we had hoped.” Talking about the game, Slagle placed the blame squarely on himself and his staff. “The coaches didn’t do a good job of handling (the short week),” the coach said. “We came out and didn’t look so good and there’s no one to blame for that, but us. Our job is to get the kids prepared and I don’t think we did a very good job of that. “Norwood’s very talented. They have the quarterback (Andrew Conover) back from last year’s playoff team and he’s an outstanding player. They made

plays and we didn’t.” The game didn’t get out of hand until the second half. The Warriors led early on, 8-7 with three minutes left in the first quarter, before Norwood scored 14 straight points. Even still, Goshen put together a strong closing drive to the half, scoring on a five-yard Scott Nichols run to cut the Indians lead to one possession. Some miscommunication coupled with the learning curve needed to implement a new offense held Goshen back from sustaining drives in the second half. “We were making too many mistakes,” Slagle said. “We dropped a couple balls and on every play, there’s one or two people not exactly on the same page. The kids are getting a good grip on this offense, but it’s still new to us and if one or two people are in the wrong place, then it really stands out.” Norwood scored 20 unanswered points in the second half to salt away their second consecutive victory, moving them to 3-4 on the season and 2-1 in the Southern Buckeye Conference. For Goshen, the loss was their second in a row after rattling off four consecutive victories between Weeks 2 and 5. At 4-3 overall and 12 in the SBC, Slagle and his team are working hard to stop their latest streak by getting a win on Oct. 18 against New Richmond on the Warriors’ senior night. “These are a great bunch of kids, I love these kids,” Slagle said. “They’re a really great bunch of seniors

and they’re one of the reasons I came back into this (head coaching) position, I wanted to finish them out. “They’ve always worked hard and they care about one another. Even when we’re losing these last two games, practice is fun with them every day. They’re a great bunch of kids who are doing the best they can. We want to send them out with a win on Friday night.” The Warriors will have a tall task ahead of them with the 6-1 Lions visiting Jim Brown Stadium. While New Richmond has implemented a similar offense as Goshen, Slagle believes that his team can use that to their advantage this week. “One of the things that helps is that we’re running that offense now, so it’s not foreign to our kids,” Slagle explained. “They see it every day in practice and even with New Richmond in the spread, they still like to run the ball at you. We have to assignment perfect when we’re spread out like that across the field. “They try to spread everyone out and get one person to blow an assignment so that they can get their talented people in space. They do a good job of that, so we’re going to have to be assignment perfect and tackle in the open field as well as we can.” The New Richmond game will be the last divisional game of the season for the Warriors, but they have two more conference games on the road against Blanchester and Williamsburg to close the season that Slagle and his team want to win.

did not tell. Some don’t tell out of fear or shame, others think it’s their fault.” She also found a list of indicators to look for that show that a child has been sexually molested. “The signs to look for include a change in appearance, declining school performance, withdrawing from activities, personality changes or a new set of friends.”, Bohrer said. She said that she saw no such signs in her own daughter, so the discovery that Engle had been communicating with her daughter as a potential lover was a devastating shock. “I did not realize for a year that this man had chosen my daughter and was grooming her to get to the point to where he could

move in sexually.”, she said. Now, Bohrer is trying to move forward and possibly help others. “If there is to be any good that comes out of this awful, awful situation, I want this message to get out there. It’s never too late to get therapy, no matter how many years ago it happened to you. The average molester has 14-17 victims. The only way it’s going to stop if people come forward. Her family is also trying to put the incident behind them. “All the experts told us to try and live life as normally as we can. She’s doing well. Both of my children are in therapy because they were both in the youth group.”, Bohrer said. She also said that she did

not expect things to ever get back to the way they were before the incident. “I think our lives will forever be defined as ‘before Chuck’ and ‘after Chuck’”. As far as forgiving Engle, Bohrer said that may come...in time. “I know at some point I have to forgive him to move forward so he doesn’t have that control. But I’m not there yet.”, she said. “I know in the end that my daughter will be alright and I feel like justice was served.” For those people out there in similar circumstances, Bohrer said “Both Talbert House and Child Focus are great therapeutic resources in Brown County to help victims and their families. And it is never too late to seek

G’town Council says FD must merge with G’town Man faces multiple sex charges life squad or village will form its own CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 missed 21 runs out of 740; • to date, the squad never took patients any where other than Southwest Regional Hospital except when necessary; • a senior medic who was in charge of the drug bags said that the squad could use a select few expired drugs and supplies due to the drug shortage; • as long as a drug was sealed, it would be good for several months or longer; • each month, expenditure sheets regarding the squad were sent out at regular business meetings. Ridner’s letter said that she felt like her department was being bullied into making a snap decision before they could look into all aspects. Later in the meeting, two members of the independent squad who were in attendance of the meeting expressed their opinions regarding the letter submitted by Ridner. Both stated that the issues discussed in the letter did not necessarily mirror their opinions. Both agreed that Chief Rockey had only stated facts at the committee meeting. Chief Rockey had no comments at the meeting but did speak to the Brown County Press. He explained that it was his sincere hope to combine the current emergency medical services, a non-profit organization not affiliated with the village government, and joining operations with the Georgetown Volunteer Fire Department. He added that he felt through streamlining services with the fire department, police department, public works and reaching out to new volunteer paramedics, the village has the capability of strengthening its EMS

service. “This is a great opportunity,” Rockey said in the written statement, “We can strengthen all departments by working as one. I’m really excited about the possibility.” In a later phone interview, Rockey stated that he felt the training of the staff of the current life squad was inadequate. He said the merger would place the squad under the Georgetown Fire Department, which would ensure new guidelines would be put in place for extensive training. He already had plans in place to recruit new members. If the independent life squad decides to maintain its status and not merge with the fire department, the village will purchase its own emergency vehicles and equipment. In other business, village administrator Jeremy Germann told council that the sidewalk work being done around the courthouse and the concrete work on both Apple and Cherry Streets was nearing completion. “”Right now we’re looking at putting the bricks down and they should be done in the next few weeks,” Germann stated. “According to the ODOT contract, they have to be done by the end of October but it looks like it’s going to finish before that.” He continued, “The wastewater treatment plant improvement project is moving along and so is the Town Run Storage Tank project.” Germann said both the projects have about 12 months left before their scheduled completion. “Over the last month I met with RCAP (Rural Community Assistance Part-

nership) and we’re looking at what the sewer rates are going to have to be, both for the wastewater treatment plant project started, which was mandated by the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency). We’ve raised the rates about half of what they’re going to have to be after it is completed, to pay for those bills.” Germann added that they hope to keep the rate increase as minimal as possible for residents. Georgetown Council also had its third reading of a resolution establishing new policies, rates and charges for the sale of burial plots, opening and closing of graves and placing of foundations and footers at Confidence Cemetery of Georgetown. The resolution was adopted by council. After suspending the rules, council also adopted a resolution to approve the execution of an ‘Efficiency Smart’ program. “About 30 days ago the utility committee and myself met with members of the American Municipal Power Association, which we are now a member of,” Germann began, “We were offered a chance to join their ‘Efficiency Smart’ program. “The ‘Efficiency Smart’ program is where they come into the village with their consultants and work with

all the business owners on ways of saving money.” Germann also shared information he received from the Brown County Rural Water Association general manager, Dan Sarbach. The letter was to notify the village of a rate adjustment schedule regarding a settlement agreement (made approximately four years ago). The agreement calls for a 10.5% rate increase every 42 months, equivalent to 3.00% per year. Germann explained that the current rate of $1.91 per thousand gallons of water will be increased to $2.11 per thousand gallons beginning with the November 2013 billing period. He also added that the public may not even see the increase this year. Later in the meeting, Germann made a proposal to council that it put together a long term plan on what each member would like to see accomplished in the next 12 months as well as the next five years. “We will put all these things together after we get the ideas back from members,” Germann began. ‘Then we can rank them by goals and divide them into different areas based on expenses and necessary resources. Hopefully we will be able to use this guide to track our progress.”

Nickolas Harty, 27 of Batavia, faces one count of Illegal Assembly or Possession of Chemicals for the Manufacture of Drugs, a third degree felony, and two counts of Improperly Handling Firearms in a Motor Vehicle. One count is a fourth degree felony, the other a fifth degree felony. David Parks, 31 of Mt.

current policy ofPAGE Eastern CONTINUED FROM 1 and I feel that there is justification for some modifications,” Bauer began. “The current policy in the district is that a member has to be a student here for all four years of high school. “We are a military family, my wife and I are both active duty, retired from the military. I just retired in May of this year. I was stationed at Wright Patterson and we chose to live here.” Bauer told the board that he likes the values of this area and he liked the schools. That’s why he settled here. “My family made great sacrifices to be in the military,” he continued. “We moved eight times across the country, both in and out of the country. “With a child in school it is very difficult in a social aspect of things. It has been a challenge with our daughter leaving so many of her friends, but we have tried to keep her focused and motivated on her school work.” He stressed that the fact that his family had to move from place to place serving

this country was not his daughter’s fault. He explained that is daughter started at Eastern at the beginning of her sophomore year and is very academically driven. “The current rule at Eastern is that she has to have four years here,” Bauer added, “Again, that’s not her fault. I feel its a real disadvantage to her to not be able to be competitive for those top awards. He continued, “So I just ask that this board consider modifications to that, which will allow for active duty military members who are serving their country, defending our freedoms, that their children are not held at a disadvantage whenever they are in competition for these top awards.” Superintendent Michelle Filon assured Mr. Bauer she would be in contact with him after the issue was addressed by the full board. “I have asked Mrs. Grimes to reach out to some of the other schools to see how our policy compares,” Superintendent Filon said.

Board member Martin Yockey took the opportunity to thank the Bauers’ for their service to the country. In other business, just prior to the hearing from the public, Filon presented a brief legislative report to the board. She commented on the top five house bills she has been watching closely that could have an impact on the school district. “I just returned from a BASA (Buckeye Association of School Administrators) legislative meeting,” Filon explained, “so I have some things to talk about. The first thing I want to discuss is House Bill (HB) 193, and how it will effect graduation requirements. There is still a lot of discussion around this bill, but the way it looks now is that there would be 10 end-ofcourse exams, five levels of scoring, one being the lowest, five being the highest. But here’s where the bill is still up in the air, it’s saying that either 2 or 3 score will be considered sufficient, but then it says it would take 25 points to graduate.”

Filon explained that if a student is required to take 10 exams and a 2 is considered proficient, then at least 5 of the scores will have to be higher than proficient to reach that 25 to graduate. “There has been a lot of discussion about this bill at BASA,” Filon added. Filon also talked briefly about HB 113 which will allow a student to waiver physical education if they are in a sport. HB 237 regards the Common Core Standards in Ohio which Filon said BASA is encouraging people to write their legislators know that a lot have money has already been spent in preparation of this bill which should be supported. HB 264, according to Filon, is in regard to diabetic students requiring schools to see that the student receives appropriate and needed diabetes care at school and school-related activities. HB 240 was also discussed by Filon, “This bill will eliminate special elections. BASA’s concern is, the average levy takes three

fifth degree felony and one count of Drug Possession, a first degree misdemeanor. Christopher Proffitt, 24 of Georgetown, is charged with one count of Possession of Heroin, a fifth degree felony and one count of Possessing Drug Abuse Instruments, a first degree misdemeanor. James Noble, Jr., 23 of Cincinnati, faces three counts of Trafficking in Heroin. The indictment also calls for the forfeiture of a 2006 Hummer H3, listed as contraband and/or property derived from or through the commission of the offense. An indictment means that charges have been filed against an individual. It is not a finding or admission of guilt.

Charles Brock sentenced to prison In October, a three count indictment was filed against Charles Brock. The indictment charged Count One, Illegal Manufacture of Drugs, a felony of the first degree, with a maximum penalty of eleven (11) years in prison; Count Two, Illegal Assembly or Possession of Chemicals for the Manufacture of Drugs, a felony of the second degree, having a maximum penalty of eight (8) years in prison and Count Three, Aggravated Possession of Drugs, a felony of the second degree, having maximum penalty of eight (8) years in prison.

attempts to pall. This bill would give districts one less attempt. BASA is taking a strong stance against this bill.” Board treasurer Kevin Kendall updated the board on the five-year forecast and reviewed it briefly with the board showing anticipated revenues and expenses. He told the board that compared to past years the five- year forecast for 2014 to 2018 looked good for the district. The board approved: • a request for Russellville first graders to attend Blair’s Pumpkin Farm; • a request from Beth Hauke to attend a conference at Eastgate; • a classified contract with Amanda Barrows for high school guidance secretary/lunchroom cashier; • a classified contract with Michelle Tracy as Russellville library aid; • supplemental contract with Amanda Barrows for 5 extended days.

Corbin also addressed the abuse of trust issue. “The one place a parent should feel save sending their child is to church, and now we have Mr. and Mrs. Bohrer blaming themselves because they took their daughter to church. They trusted their daughter with this man. The defendant used his position of trust to create the circumstances where the sexual conduct took place.”, Corbin said. Jennifer Bohrer is the mother of the victim. She said she has decided to deal with the pain that her and her family are going through by speaking out publicly and by trying to help others. She said she was inspired to do so when people started

reaching out to her when the case first became public knowledge last Spring. “I started getting phone calls from people who had been molested or their children had been molested. I always asked them if they had been to the police. Not one of them said yes.”, Bohrer said. “I asked them if they had been in therapy or thier child had been in therapy and they said no.” Bohrer said the impact of the case on her family caused her to do research into the molestation issue. She said what she discovered was disturbing. “I found out that one in four girls at some point in their lives will be molested...and most of them do not tell. My own daughter

Hiking the Appalachian Trail, one man’s journey hydrated. But even when facing sickness and miserable weather, Zachary said he never once considered quitting the hike. He jokingly said he couldn’t stand to go back home and tell everyone that he had quit.

When asked about the best day of his trip, without hesitation he said, “That would be the last day of the trip when I made it to Katahun, Maine, but I truly enjoyed the entire trip. Zachary said during his trip he saw 15 black bears, wild ponies, rattlesnakes all through Pennsylvania, lots of

deer, turkey and otters. He said the scenery was magnificent and he took dozens of pictures of sun rises and sunsets, and beautiful mountains. He said that although he was glad to see the last day of his hike arrive, he said it was also a little scary. “I remember thinking to

myself, now what? Where do I go from here?” At 24 years of age, Zachary Adamson has experienced more than many people do in a lifetime. He said the hike across the Appalachian Trail did what he hoped it would do, it cleared his head and helped him come to terms with his past.

Zachary is already making plans to walk the Pacific Crest Trail in 2015, which runs from Mexico to Canada, 2,700 miles long. But he won’t be making that hike alone. “I made some good friends while I was hiking the Appalachian Trail and we’re all planning to walk

the Pacific Crest Trail together,” Zachary said. “I recommend to everyone who ever wanted to hike the Appalachian Trail to go for it. I saw young people who were in great physical shape drop out after a little while. And I saw much older, frail looking people endure it all.”

Mark Trammell Quartet to be in Mt. Orab

Mark Trammell Quartet to be at Bible Baptist Church, Mt. Orab

B R O A D S H E E T

The Mark Trammell Quartet will be live in concert at the Bible Baptist Chuch, Mt. Orab on Thursday, October 24 beginning at 7 p.m. For over thirty seven years Mark Trammell has been blessed to sing Gospel Music. Something he says, "evolved from a dream to a life's call; from just singing to ministry." Many long time observers and followers of Gospel Music consider him to be one the greatest baritone singers of all time. He has won multiple awards as a singer and producer, and has been a member of four of Gospel Music's most acclaimed groups - The Kingsmen, The Cathedrals, Greater Vision and Gold City. For most people, just being with one of these legendary groups would be the pinnacle of a career and justification for resting on your laurels. But for Mark now is not the time to kick back and relax. Instead, it is time to step into a fresh mission that focuses on evangelism through the seamless integration of Gospel Music and preaching - The Mark Trammell Quartet. If surrounding yourself with the right people is one of the keys of success, then Mark Trammell might be considered a 'master locksmith'. Since he was 15 years old, Mark has literally

been surrounded by and sung with some of the most respected men in Southern Gospel Music including Ray Shelton, Eldridge Fox, Jim Hamill, Squire Parsons, Ray Reece, Tim Riley, Glen Payne, and George Younce. Taking on the mantel of mentor, Mark Trammell is now surrounding himself with three of the brightest young vocalists on the Gospel Music horizon. Dustin Black, Nick Trammell, and Pat Barker. Mark trammell has been married to his wife LaResa for thirty three years. They have one son, twenty seven year old Nick who graduated from Gadsden State Community College with an Associates Degree in Music and from Jacksonville State University with a Bachelors Degree in Accounting. Nick and his wife Jessica are settling into married life and live in Gadsden, Ala. Throughout his career, Mark has been privileged to perform in some very prestigious venues including Radio City Music Hall, Brooklyn Tabernacle, and the South lawn of the White House. He has performed for President Jimmy Carter, and noted pastors/evangelists such as the venerable Dr. W.A. Crisswell, Dr. Charles Stanley, Dr. Tom Eliff, Dr. bailey Smith, Dr. Adrian Rodgers, and others. It was on the Isle of Patmos

that mark initially began to understand God’s call of evangelism. “For many years I literally fought the call of evangelism,” explains Mark. “I’ve enjoyed these years of helping others fulfill their dreams while living out my own dream of being a gospel singer. But now, God has given me new dreams built on His calling on my life to combine singing and preaching as the venue warrants. I came to the realization a few years back that God doesn’t want me to be someone else. He wants me to be who He made me to be, and that was the goal for this trio when we started and now for the quartet. We are to be ministers of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and to live, preach and sing in such a manner that no feels or thinks we’re trying to be something we’re not. We are to be trusted stewards of God’s blessings in our lives. We are to be faithful and obedient to God’s leadership and to administer our ministry with integrity on sound godly principles. The bottom line is for our families to be able to say, “We’re glad we lived in the home of a Gospel singer.” Don’t forget to mark your calendars for Thursday, October 24 at 7 p.m. to see the Mark Trammell Quartet at the Bible Baptist Chuch, Mt. Orab.

Lucas Brown spoke to members of the Georgetown Board of Education, October 16 announcing that he had taken over as president of the Georgetown Elementary School PTO (Parent Teachers Organization). “We have been working with Dr. Wilcox (principal) and she has been an absolute joy at the elementary,” Brown began, “To be honest, when I first became involved with the PTO I wasn’t sure I wanted to take this on. I have always heard a lot about the PTO, how the PTO is doing this and the PTO is doing that and I got involved and when I saw that no one was going to step up to be president, I decided to do it myself rather than let the organization die.” Brown told the board that he recruited a few individuals and he feels excited about the future with new officers now in place. Brown presented the board with a copy of a form that had to be completed by himself and the board and he wanted to review it with the board. “The purpose of this organization is for the support of our children’s education in Georgetown Exempted School District,” he began. “I truly believe this and my thoughts and ideas are to not just create an elementary school organization, but truly a community organization.” Brown said he has lived in the area for many, many years, he graduated in 1997 from Georgetown and now has two children attending the school. “You know, in 1997, Georgetown was ‘rip,’ and I think we’ve lost some of that. Maybe there’s some of that GMan pride that’s done in me that says enough is enough, so I think, if our main goal is to make this a true community organization, and try to get more people involved, the rest will take care of itself.” Brown said he feels like people will like being a part of something good and do a lot of good things together. He told the board that he is very excited about the upcoming ‘Fall Festival’ and believes it could be the best festival ever, and next year’s festival will be even better. “I want to make sure we have all the paperwork done for this organization because policy says it has to be in place,” Brown said. “I want to run this like a small business. The government sees it as a small business and that’s how it should be run.” He continued, “I want to personally invite all the board members to the October 25 Fall Festival at the Elementary School and I can assure you that you’ll have a great time. There’s a lot going to be going on at the festival. The Cahall’s will be helping with a hayride for the kids, and of course there’s the famous “Cow Drop” that seems to be real popular. Tickets are only $10 for the cow drop, and I have tickets here tonight if anyone wants to purchase one.” Brown explained that a cow will be brought into a small fenced in area and sections of that area will be sold for $10 each. If the cow relieves herself on the purchased real estate, the owner of that section could win $2,500. For more information on the Cow Drop email georgetownway@gtpto.org In other business at the meeting, Superintendent Chris Burrows opened with a sincere congratulations to board president, Ralph Sininger for his induction into the Brown County Athletic Hall of Fame this winter after 46 years of keeping the books for the school. Burrows also recognized board member Steve Dunkin who will be receiving an award in November, from the Ohio School Board Association. “Steve will be receiving the award for being an Exemplary leader” for his partnership with Judge Gusweiler and the 40 Developmental Assets program,” Burrows explained. “It’s something he is passionate about, ending, stopping, demolishing the movement of drugs within our community. He is very outspoken about that and put his money where his mouth was.” Burrows went on to talk briefly about progress in preparing Georgetown 3rd

graders to pass the Ohio Department of Education mandated program. Third grade students must be on track to pass reading by the end of their third year. “We did our assesment this fall as we were mandated to do,” Burrows said. “And we had a total of 67 students from kindergarten to third grade that are considered ‘Not on Track’ when it comes to reading. “What that means is that we have to develop a plan on how

teachers are going to improve these reading scores between now and when they take the test in the spring.” Burrows told the board that having 29 third grade students that are not on track should be a red flag for the district. If the students do not pass the test again, they will have the opportunity to take reading over the summer. If the student still does not pass the test they will be remediate, retained in third grade reading. In other business board treasurer Eric Toole reviewed the 5-year forecast which was approved by all. Following execution session the board took these action: • employes several non-licensed personnel with limited supplemental contract; • employed a certified substitute teacher and a substitute educational aides; • employed Robert Lane as varsity baseball coach; • employed Gar Seigla as softball coach; • accept Rob Ernst as volunteer assistant coach for boys basketball coach. The board also approved a list of policy changes, revision or replacements.

helped put points on the board by intercepting two passes. Freshman Tyler King had one and Andrew Dowers the other. “We’re a turnover based team, and we are at 14 interceptions for the year with the two tonight,” Geers said. “We stress that in practice with defensive backs. If it is thrown, we’re going up to get it. Those takeaways, always make good things happen for us.” There were some mistakes though, mainly penalties according to Geers. “We probably had about 150 yards in penalties, but we’ll get that taken care of and cleaned up,” he said. “Our coverage is always a work in progress as well.” Geers continued, "We're not satisfied and we're going to continue to grow as a program."

Fayetteville senior fullback Jacob Laney (center) crossed the goal line once against Aiken, but the had 206 yards in the 46-14 win over the Falcons on Oct. 11.

The Fayetteville Lady Rockets came away with a hard fought 1-0 victory against Williamsburg in the first round of the Division III sectional tournament -- Cincinnati 2 bracket on October 14. With a win over the Williamsburg Wildcats during the regular season under their belt, the eight seed FayettevillePerry Lady Rocket soccer team had high hopes as they went into the first round match against the 15 seed Wildcats. During the regular season the Lady Rockets shut out the Wildcats 9-0, but the girls from Williamsburg were missing their starting keeper -- along with a few other players -that day due to injury. During the tournament game, the Rockets were only able to squeeze one goal into the back of the net. “It was a hard played match,” Fayetteville Head Coach Mark Ward said. “I told my girls that it wasn’t going to be like [last time] and

they were prepared. I knew that with their keeper back, and with her reputation we were going to have to earn everything we got, and we did.” The single goal of the game came from Fayetteville junior Sydney Flora during the first half, but the defense for both teams kept the game even after that. Flora has 18 goals on the season, and is in the top ten -- tied for 8th -of scorers among Cincinnati area schools. “For the most part we did what we set out to do, even though a couple of times we got out of our game plan,” Ward said. “We controlled the ball pretty well, and we out shot them heavily.” Ward continued, “Our defense keeps us in every ball game, and they did that again here. They’re crucial and usually don’t get beat that often. We did well. Overall I thought everyone stepped up their game.” The Lady Rockets ended their regular season 2-1 during their last three games before the start of the tournament, with wins against East-

ern and Ripley and the loss coming against Hillsboro. But the Lady Rocket’s season ended almost a week before their matchup with Williamsburg, and they risked losing momentum if they didn’t play soon enough. “I was glad we played at home, its the first time we’ve played a home tournament game in three years so that was to our advantage,” Ward said. “We were off for almost a week, and that’s why I took the Monday the game. Any time you have a lay off it just kills you.” Competition will increase as the Lady Rockets move further into the tournament but Ward hopes they can continue playing. “I’m proud of the girls for the season they put together,” he said. The Lady Rockets finished up the regular season 11-5, and 6-1 in the Southern Hills Athletic League. I hope we can continue the season,” Ward said.

Western Brown’s Lady Bronco soccer team had a tall task in front of them as they went up against the Lebanon Lady Warriors Oct. 14. While the Lady Broncos did everything they could, they weren’t able to score a goal in their 50 first round loss to the Warriors. “Its hard to compete against these bigger teams,” Western Brown Head Coach Dan Silvis said. “They play some strong teams like Mason and Loveland, so its hard to keep up with them.” Silvis said the girls did well for the first 20 minutes, but once the first goal was scored it “kind of snowballed.” The Lady Broncos didn’t give up while they played their game, but the talent level of Lebanon was a little too much in the end. “I think 5-0 against a team like that is re-

spectable for us,” Silvis said. “We’re a very young team, and we gave them a better game than they thought we would. I’m proud of how they stepped up and did their best.” The biggest challenge throughout the season for the Lady Broncos has been a lack of experience. They started the season off 0-4, but once the team members got used to the rhythm and speed of the game, they were able to turn things around for a good season with an overall record of 7-7-2. “We played well in the second half of the season. The girls never let down and never let the losing get to them,” Silvis said. “I’m excited about next season. The [younger] girls know what it takes now, and there is some good talent coming up as well.” With only three graduating seniors this year, the Lady Broncos should improve with 16 possible returning players. The

seven freshmen on varsity were able to get a lot of minutes, according to Silvis, and they really helped the team out. “There is no doubt we will miss the seniors, especially Holly O’Hara,” Silvis said. “Her as a striker really helped the team. She gave 110 percent every game, and we’re going to miss that. [Freshmen] Shelby Elder, Mackenzie Young, Dana Buttree, Ashleigh Richter, all did a great job this year. I could go on about everyone though.” Silvis went on, “The biggest thing is we aren’t losing a lot of players like last year. We only had seven players who had varsity experience, but next season we should do a lot better. I’m extremely proud of the girls, starting out the way we did, they stepped up and fought through it all.”

Individual Eastern runners place second overall at SHAC meet By Sabrina Mignerey The Brown County Press The Southern Hills Athletic Conference Cross Country meet took place on Saturday, October 12th at R-U-L-H High School. The top female High School finishers were; Alyssa Taylor of the Eastern Brown Warriors (2nd overall) with a time of 20:57; Riley Clayton of the Fayetteville Rockets (7th overall) with a time of 22:37; and Stacey White of RULH (14th overall) with a time of 23:48.

The top male High School finishers were; Layne Pickerill of the Eastern Brown Warriors (2nd overall) with a time of 16:54; Josh Deaton of RULH (13th overall) with a time of 18:38; and Cody Holden of Fayetteville (15th overall) with a time of 18:44. Eastern Coach Tom Glasscock said that, “He is proud of the team’s efforts.” He is excited for his team’s future. He is also proud of the fact that they are doing so well with a relatively young girls’ team, with every

girl being new to the team with the exception of Rebecca Ellis. He said he is also proud of Austin Rowl, who has been fighting through injury to advance. Every week it seems that the Warriors are setting new personal best records, and are improving weekly as a team. Glasscock’s goal is to run well enough at districts at Rio Grande on October 19th to advance to regionals, and he believes his team has a good shot at advancing further.

The Fayetteville-Perry Rocket football continued their winning streak after beating the Aiken Falcons final score of 46-14 Oct. 11. The Rockets moved to 5-2 on the season after the win, which is a major improvement over their two wins last year. “We’re a 5-2 football team. This is a team [Aiken] in the past we might have struggled with,” Fayetteville Head Coach Nathan Geers said. “Our program is growing and it shows. Beating a team 46-14 is pretty good.” Geers attributes the team's success to the senior players. "Our seniors have set the tone for what Fayetteville football is about in the future. They put in the work and the time and they are starting to see the benefits, and awards of all their hard work," Geers

said. It was the Rocket run game that helped them score so much. Six of their seven touchdowns came from run plays. Fayetteville sophomore Caleb Dowers ran for 92 yards and three touchdowns. Senior Andrew Dowers had 87 yards and one touchdown. And senior Jacob Laney rushed for 206 yards and had one touchdown as well. The sixth rushing touchdown came from sophomore quarterback Cole Schaefer, who also threw a touchdown pass. The Rockets had 415 total rushing yards. The run game is the aspect Geers and the Rockets hang their hat on. “We knew if we came out and played physical we could establish the run game, and see all of our guys have a nice game. Anytime you have four guys doing that, good things are going to happen,” Geers said. The Rocket defense

BY Brandon Barb The Brown County Press Another week and another big win for the Western Brown football team. , The Broncos beat the Clermont Northeastern Rockets 63-12 Oct. 11. The Broncos improved to 7-0 overall, and lead the Southern Buckeye Conference with 2-0 league record. “It was a good win for us,” Western Brown Head Coach Evan Dreyer said. “We need to keep improving though.” Once again, senior Devyn quarterback Wood led the Bronco offense with six touchdowns and 373 yards passing. He also ran for 41 yards and one touchdown. Wood spread the ball around nicely again, hitting two receivers for over 100 yards each. Junior wide receiver Chaz Patten caught eight passes for 137 yards and three touchdowns. Sophomore wide receiver Eean Hornung hauled in seven balls for 134 yards and one touchdown. Senior Jarred Haggerty caught one touchdown pass, and junior Christian Dawson caught the sixth. Dawson, who has been Wood’s favorite target this season, was kept quiet against the Rockets with 15 yards -- but the scoring machine that is

the Bronco offense works with whoever is catching the ball. “Chaz [Patten] played really well, stepping into a bigger role,” Dreyer said. But despite their success, Dreyer isn’t satisfied. “We need to keep improving as a team each day and every week,” he said. “We had three dropped passes, our kickoff team allowed a touchdown.” The younger Bronco players performed well against the Rockets. According to Dreyer they scored a touchdown, created a turnover and made a few big stops on defense. There are only a few games left for the Broncos, but with how both sides of the ball have been playing things are looking good for them as they finish up the regular season. “We can only worry about the things we control which is our effort, attitude, preparation and character,” Dreyer said. The Broncos took on the Amelia Barons at Amelia on Oct, 18. Coverage of that game will appear in the Oct. 27 edition of the Brown County Press.

New antlerless deer muzzleloader season a success Ohio muzzleloader hunters enjoyed warm weather as they harvested 5,608 antlerless whitetailed deer during the new antlerless-only muzzleloader hunting weekend Oct. 12-13, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR). “ Ohio ’s first antlerlessonly muzzleloader deer season was a success, and we are pleased so many hunters participated,” said ODNR Director James Zehringer. “We remain committed to providing Ohio ’s sportsmen and women with some of the best hunting opportunities in the nation.” The new antlerless muzzleloader weekend was the first opportunity to take

advantage of Ohio ’s new extended hunting hours. A half hour of golden opportunity hunting time after sunset was added to all of this year’s upcoming deergun hunting seasons. The Ohio counties that reported the most checked deer during the 2013 antlerless-only muzzleloader season: Ashtabula (200), Licking (164), Guernsey (144), Muskingum (143), Knox (141), Coshocton (138), Adams (135), Columbiana (128), Carroll (120), Athens (117) and Trumbull (117). The ODNR Division of Wildlife remains committed to properly managing Ohio ’s deer populations through a combination of regulatory and programmatic changes. This new

early muzzleloader season also serves to help manage the state’s deer herd. Progress toward reducing locally abundant herds can be expected, and strides have been made to reduce deer herds in many counties closer to target levels. Ohio hunters are encouraged to hunt more does this season to help the needy in their area. The ODNR Division of Wildlife is working with Farmers and Hunters Feeding the Hungry (FHFH) to help pay for the processing of donated venison. Hunters who donate their deer to a food bank are not required to pay the processing cost as long as funding for the effort lasts. More information about this program

can be found online at fhfh.org. Deer hunting in Ohio continues to be a popular activity for many who enjoy the outdoors. Ohio hunters checked 218,910 deer during the 2012-2013 season. Ohio ranks fifth nationally in resident hunters and 11th in the number of jobs associated with hunting-related industries. Hunting has a more than $853 million economic impact in Ohio through the sale of equipment, fuel, food, lodging and more, according to the National Shooting Sports Foundation’s Hunting in America: An Economic Force for Conservation publication.

First round tournament loss for the G-Men against CCD The Cincinnati Country Day Indians proved too much for the G-Men soccer team during the first round of the Division III sectional tournament Oct. 15. The final score was 14-0, with the Indians dominating the entire game. Georgetown showed a few signs of life, but lack of substitutes meant fatigue for the G-Men as the game wore on. “I had guys coming up to me saying they needed a break, but I didn’t have anyone to put in for them,” Georgetown Head Coach Neil Malone said. “A handful of my guys were playing with injuries, and it was hard to ask them to give me everything they had.” Heading into the tourna-

ment, the G-Men finished the regular season with three straight wins at home. “I knew going in we had an uphill battle. Cincinnati Country Day is very good and they play extremely tough. We just went in hoping we would get lucky with a few bounces going our way,” Malone said. The G-Men lacked experience this year as well. They began the season with eight players who have never played the sport before. "Some of the older guys had seen play like that [CCD], but the guys who haven't played at all before this year weren't prepared for how talented Cincinnati Country Day is," Malone said. Despite the talent difference, the G-Men didn't get upset, keeping their cool

during a frustrating experience. "It's good they didn't give up and that they didn't start to play dirty," Malone said. The season was a good one for the Georgetown boys, overall. With so many new to the game players and nagging injuries, Malone was happy with the year. "I knew we were going to struggle since we lost eight starters from last year," he said. "I just wanted the guys to compete and play hard in every game. We only five games that were bad, but they never gave up and they are probably the hardest playing team I've had." For next season, Malone is losing five seniors and returning eight.

Eastern seniors Nathan Scott (33) and Jacob Walsh (24) each scored a goal during their first round victory over the West Union Dragons. The final score was 11-1.

First round loss for Lady Broncos BY Brandon Barb The Brown County Press Momentum was on the side of the 25th seed Lady Bronco volleyball team as they went into their first tournament match against 15 seed Loveland on Oct. 14. But even though the Lady Broncos won their last three regular season games, they weren’t able to get their offense going against Loveland. “Overall we had some good volleys, and some good moments,” Western Brown Head Coach Carla Fite said. “But we weren’t consistent enough to keep the score close. Loveland is a very strong team. They are a great serving and blocking team.” Fite said the Lady Bronco defense was better than their offense. They were “off” due to Loveland’s “strong coverage.” “Our offense was definitely lacking,” Fite said. The Loveland Tigers won in three sets, 25-8, 25-12, 25-16, but Fite was pleased with her girls being able to improve with each set. “The first set they were nervous,” Fite said. “A lot of it had to do with their nerves and adjusting to the quicker speed of Loveland. I’d rather improve each set than do worse. It shows that we weren’t totally giving up.” Fite continued, “When we play the big Division I schools, the speed of the game is a lot quicker, so its kind of hard to get into a good rhythm. They [Loveland] ran a faster offense than what we were used to.” The loss was a disappointment to the Lady Broncos, but they are happy with their overall record of 18-5 and tied for first finish in the Southern Buckeye Conference. “There is always excitement and the experience from this year will carry over and help us move forward,” Fite said. “I’m excited about moving forward.”

habit of wanting to try and push through the middle and it wasn’t there with a defense like that,” Fender said. “We needed to hit flag, and get crosses but we weren’t doing that in the first half.” He continued, “The second half was more like Warrior soccer.” As the tournament continues for the Warriors, Fender hopes his players spread the field out and possess the ball in the midfield. “I’m just glad to get that first one and get it out of the way,” Fender said. “Which ever team we play now is going to be tough, but we will be okay. They understand what they have to do to do well. I’m excited and hope we can keep playing. They have the heart and skill to do well [in this tournament].”

Thousands of ring-neck pheasants released throughout Ohio More than 15,000 ring-necked pheasants will be released at 27 Ohio public hunting areas this fall to provide additional hunting opportunities across the state, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR). “Ohioans have enjoyed more than 100 years of pheasants in Ohio ,” said ODNR Director James Zehringer. “We are dedicated to increasing opportunities for Ohio hunters and continuing the strong tradition of game hunting for many generations to come.” Pheasants will be released Friday, Oct. 18, and Friday, Oct. 25, prior to the small-game weekends for youth hunters. Hunters age 17 and younger can hunt statewide for rabbit,

pheasant and all other legal game in season during two designated weekends, Oct. 19-20 and Oct. 26-27.

Fayetteville-Perry senior Claire Carson (28) had six kills and nine aces against the win against Aiken.

Quick victory for Lady Rockets BY Brandon Barb The Brown County Press The Lady Rocket volleyball team won their first round tournament match, but the girls in black and green wanted to see a little more action from their opponent. Number one seed Fayetteville was paired with 10 seed Aiken, and the match was over in three sets; 258, 25-2, 25-6. Fayetteville Senior Claire Carson had six kills, nine aces and was 20 for 20 on her serves. Junior Carly Burroughs had six kills as well and eight aces. “What can you do?” Fayetteville Head Coach Sharon Sheets said. “The girls didn’t really want to play our game, and we finished quickly. We did have an opportunity to play a little bit but it was just real quick.” The Aiken Lady Falcons finished the regular season 1-14 before heading into the tournament, but Sheets said she wasn’t going to base her preparations on their record. She told her girls that they could be a good team that just happened to go up against tough competition. “They [Aiken] tried, but they struggled to get the ball back to us,” Sheets said. “You have to give them credit. They didn’t get down and their coach was very positive. But that meant we weren’t able to do what we do.”

During the match, the Lady Rockets were relaxed and wanted to see Aiken succeed, according to Sheets. The Rockets even decided to not do their ace cheer after the first set. “Our girls were very classy,” she said. “The girls wanted to have the ball returned and have a few volleys but it was just one of those things.” Now that the first round is over, the Lady Rockets are set on getting into the finals of the tournament -and then the championship game after that. “Our goal is to get to Monday’s game. The girls are more motivated and encouraged even more,” Sheets said. “Getting through the first round is one thing, but if we show up we will be fine. They are very much in tune with what we need to do.” The Lady Rockets finished up the regular season 18-2, and improved to 19-2 overall. They advanced to the semi-finals where their opponent will be third seed Seven Hills, which should be a good matchup for Fayetteville. “Tournament time is always fun,” Sheets said. “Its like a new season, but each game has bigger consequences.” The Lady Rocket junior varsity team also accomplished a major milestone this year, finishing the season 20-0 for the first time in school history.

Spirits are high for the second seed Eastern Warriors soccer team after their 11-1 win over the seventh seed West Union Dragons in the first round of Southeast Division III tournament. The Warriors finished the regular season 11-21 overall, and 6-1 in league play. “I was pretty aggravated with how we played in the first half,” Eastern Head Coach Regge Fender said. “They [West Union] came out to play, and we didn’t. But in the second half we got it together and played like we should have.” Senior Nathan Scott had one goal, senior Jacob Walsh scored another, senior captain Curtis Burns had three goals, junior Brandon Covert had two, senior

Nathaniel Wessel put one in the net and sophomore Brady Klein had two as well. The eleventh goal was an own goal by West Union. “In the second half we got into a passing game,” Fender said. “We always talk about winning the midfield, and that’s where the game is won. We started to string passes together, and it opened up some opportunities for us.” West Union struggled during the game since they only had 11 players, and according to Fender, their best player wasn’t allowed to participate. “They were short handed, but they played hard,” Fender said. Even though the Warriors were able to score in the double digits, Fender said there were a few flaws in their game. The Dragons played kept a tight defense by keeping 10 of their 11 back. “We have this bad

Walnuts For Sale? If you are looking for some extra money, black walnut trees, for the most part are loaded with walnuts this year. Many of the nuts have already dropped despite the fact we have not seen a frost, at least I haven’t yet. This is something young people could do once they get home from school. In addition to being able to sell the walnuts for a profit, many people just want the walnuts out of their yard, so it could be a win-win situation. Where is there a market for black walnuts? My understanding is that the oldest

The walnuts are hulled once you unload them and then weighed. Keep Farm Safety in Mind As we are now in full swing for the 2013 harvest of corn and soybeans, we need to keep safety in mind.

Soybean Cyst Nematode As we get into the harvest season, it is time to think about things like SCN. The yields for 2013 sound like they are pretty good from the farmers I have talked to. Soybean and corn yields are outstanding on many of the farms that have harvested. With this kind of year, the problems are sometimes hidden or just overlooked. Outstanding yields tend to make you forget about some things that could be robbing from you like Soybean Cyst Nematode. The best time to sample fields for soybean cyst nemLIST
