Broncos to host first playoff game BY Martha B. Jacob The Brown County Press The atmosphere in the Village of Mt. Orab and across the county has been one of sheer excitement and anticipation as the Western Brown Bronco’s football team prepares to play the biggest game of their young lives! It’s no secret anywhere in Brown County, that the Bronco’s have a perfect regular season record of 10-0. That alone is impressive, but now with a playoff game against Dayton Thurgood Marshall set for Friday, Nov. 8, the Bronco’s have a home field advantage. “Having that home field advantage is big,” said Cindy Brumfield, treasurer for the Touchdown Club at Western, “it’s really big for our boys!

2013 BROWN COUNTY ELECTION RESULTS Senior Services levy approved BY Martha B. Jacob The Brown County Press Nearly 700 people in Brown County depend on services provided by the Brown County Senior Citizens Council, which is one of three agencies that work together, including AdamsBrown Counties Economic Opportunities, (ABCEO) (also known as (ABCAP, community action) and the Northern Brown Senior Center. Needless to say, when the Senior Services re-
newal 0.8 mill levy passed Nov. 5, it was good news for residents of Brown County. And it passed overwhelmingly, 5,845 votes for the levy and 1,658 votes against it. According to Sue Lang, executive director of the Brown County Senior Citizens Council, the services provided to senior citizens are critical in allowing older adults to remain independently in their homes and be vital members of the community.
G’town council race still open BY Wayne Gates The Brown County Press A very tight race for Georgetown Village Council has two seats still open. Only four votes separate three candidates. The two with the highest vote total will be seated. The outcome of the race will not be known until November 18 at the earliest, when ten provisional ballots will be examined by the Brown County Board of Elections.

The three candidates who are in limbo until next week are Susan Bean with 335 votes, Raelena Morrison with 334 votes and Zachary Triplett with 332 votes. Incumbent council members Kelly Cornette and Sarah Eagan were elected to council with 434 and 370 votes respectively. Those total are high enough not to be affected by provisional ballots.

New Aberdeen council elected BY Wayne Gates The Brown County Press The prospect of a new water plant for Aberdeen appears to be very dim following the Nov. 5 election. Three of the four council members elected, Jason Phillips, Rajenna Combess and Bill Wilson, have stated their opposition to building the water plant. They join current council member Jim Perraut, who has also made his opposition to clear

with numerous council votes. That means four of the six members on the incoming council do not favor construction of the water plant. New council member Robert Meadows is in favor of building the water plant. The question is an important one because the village is facing the prospect of a judgment of hundreds of thousands of dollars against it in a breach of contract lawsuit if it does not resume

The Village of Aberdeen will not build a water plant. At a special meeting on Nov. 7, the village council voted to approve a settlement offer with bondholder Annette Mineer. The settlement agreement calls for the village to give Mineer the $2,742,886.27 currently being held by U.S. Bank. The village is also agreeing to return 62.5 percent of the estate taxes that Mineer is

expected to pay the village. That amount will be approximately $400,000. The vote was three in favor of the agreement and three opposed, with Mayor Harry Foxworthy casting the tie vote in favor of the settlement. Following the vote, council member Jay Castle resigned from council immediately, dropping a prepared resignation letter on the desk in front of Foxworthy and leaving the room without saying a word. After the meeting, council member Dr. Matt Shotwell also resigned from council. Shotwell and Castle both voted against the settlement agreement. Both men said they disagree with the settlement because it puts the village at risk for punitive damages that will be awarded to Shinn Brothers, the construction firm that has already won a lawsuit against the village. Castle’s letter read in part “I can no longer be a part of this council since I fear the
direction they are following will destroy this village...I plan on contacting Shinn Brothers and will strongly suggest that they should retrieve future damages from the individual council members and the mayor...instead of the Aberdeen taxpayers.” Castle also said he would offer to testify against council members who voted for the settlement and Mayor Foxworthy “in an effort to protect the citizens of the village from future financial hardship.” Following the meeting, Shotwell said that the citizens of Aberdeen “have no idea what’s coming at them” as a result of the settlement vote. “I think this decision will cost the village in excess of a million dollars just for litigation fees, punitive damages and repayment of the money paid by the IRS.” The Internal Revenue Service is paying 45 percent of the interest on the bonds because they were issued against federal stimulus funds. The cost at the end of 2013 to pay back the IRS
will be $223,666.86. Shotwell also said he was frustrated by the “toxic atmosphere” of the village council meetings. “I have asked a multitude of questions at council meetings (about the water plant issue) and have not been provided a single viable answer”, Shotwell said. “I can no longer be a part of a dysfunctional village council that is leading the village down the path of financial ruin.” During the meeting, Foxworthy threatened to have Shotwell removed from the room after Shotwell began asking questions before the settlement vote. When asked about that moment following the meeting, Shotwell said “It’s just sad. At that moment, I realized that it was a futile effort to try and help the village. I realized that this village needs far more than what I can offer.” As for the residents of Aberdeen, Shotwell said “Be prepared to pay a tremendous increase in
taxes and water. The cost of living is about to go up significantly in Aberdeen.” Shinn Brothers filed the lawsuit last July against the village, seeking $828,000 in damages for materials purchased and lost profits. The company submitted a settlement offer for $692,000 via a letter to the court appointed mediator in November of 2012. Shinn Brothers Attorney Timothy Heather also noted in the letter that ”Shinn Brothers would consider moving forward with the contract and building Aberdeen’s water treatment plant, providing Aberdeen also reimbursed Shinn Brothers for the legal fees and other expenses it has incurred to date as a result of Aberdeen’s breach of the contract.” After the meeting, Foxworthy was asked about the fact that the settlement opened up the village to higher damages in the Shinn Brothers lawsuit. Regarding the settlement offer of Shinn Brothers to drop the lawsuit in ex-
change for resuming the project, Foxworthy said “I never heard them say that.” When asked how the village would pay damages that could potentially be in the hundreds of thousands of dollars, Foxworthy said “We’ll cross that bridge when we come to it. I’m not going to predict and I don’t know what’s going to happen or what the case is or how strong a case (Village Solicitor) David (Grimes) has. When we go to court, that’ll be the time to talk about that.” When asked if the village could pay off a $400,000 damage award, Foxworthy said “We’ll worry about that when the time comes”. When asked if the village had access to that kind of money, Foxworthy answered “Possibly.” When asked where the money would come from, he answered “I can’t say right now. I don’t know where it would come from.”

crown was in 2008. And this event marks the schools very first home state playoff game in its history.” Brumfield said that Mariah Votel, vice president of the Touchdown Club, came up with the idea to ask all the merchants in town to decorate their store fronts in brown and gold in support of the Broncos. “Mariah and I went all over town asking for support by displaying brown and gold,” Brumfield said. “Well, this community went all out, and everywhere you look you can see their pride and support on windows, billboards and signs.” Jina Bohl, director of curriculum and instruction for Western Brown School District said she’s never seen such excitement in the schools as she has seen the last couple of weeks. “I don’t know how the kids can even concentrate,” Bohl said with a chuckle. “This is huge for Western, and everybody knows it. I was in one of the art rooms the other day and it was all anyone could talk about. There’s an energized excitement here at Western that you just can’t describe.” She added “This team of Broncos have pulled this district together and I believe they’ll go all the way.
SSCC Board of Trustees to meet Nov. 13
The Southern State Community College Board of Trustees will meet 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 13, in the conference room of Hospice of Hope Ohio Valley, 215 Hughes Blvd., Mt. Orab.

We are so proud of them.” Bohl added that all ages of people, from young to old are talking about the big game coming up Friday. “We expect a lot of alumni foot ballplayers to be at the game” Brumfield continued. “We are also excited that the four people who were involved in starting the football program at Western, back in 1970, are going to be there. Roger Courts, Tom Ball, Gary Srofe and Les Cook got the first team organized, imagine how proud they must be now!” Members of the Touchdown Club, which has been around since 1995, cater to the team throughout the year. They follow the team and run around trying to provide them with the things they need. Brumfield said the club picks up where the school leaves off. “This whole football season has been exciting,” Brumfield said. “From the first win at the first game of the season up until today. Each week, with our guys bringing us a win, the season has just built and built with excitement and anticipation of making it all the way. And we knew all along that that could happen.” On Wednesday evening Butterbee’s Restaurant hosted a very special ‘pep Rally’ for the team and more than 225 people attended. Owner of Butterbees, Leila David said it was a great turnout. “We here at Butterbees feel very proud and honored that the Western Brown football team would let us host such a great event,” David said. “It was great to see everyone in the community come together for such a great event. We are happy to be a part of this history.” Western Brown football coach since 2008, Evan Dreyer, told everyone at a recent pep rally that he is
very proud of his team and that he expects his team of Broncos to bring home a playoff win. “This is not just us going to these playoffs,” Coach Dreyer said with pride, “It’s this community going
to the playoffs. And I know this means a lot to all the former football players and teams as well as the whole Bronco family.” Sports coverage for the Bronco football playoff game begins on page 18.

LIAR, LIAR, LIAR
Question: ‘How do you know when a politician is not lying? Answer: When his mouth is not moving. That is an old joke. But is it funny? Not really. Lying is never funny to God. The worldly follow their father who is the devil and ‘he is a liar and the father of lies’. JOHN 8:44. Let us leave the worldly to their lying and address the people of God in our short time here. The people of God are never to be liars. Whether his Old Testament people, Israel, or his people today, the New Testament church, God insists that his people speak and walk in truth. We follow our father, God, who cannot lie. (TITUS 1:2; HEBREWS 6:18.) God’s church today follows their Savior Jesus who is ‘the truth’. (JOHN 14:6) For God’s people, lying has never been a joking matter. Two Examples from Scripture. One Old Testament. One New Testament. An Old Testament example is well-known by the student of the Bible. Abram lied about his relationship to his wife. He referred to her as a sister for fear of his life. He did this twice. (See: GENESIS 12; 20.) Abraham’s son Isaac lied in the same manner for the same reason. (See: GENESIS 26.) Jacob, Isaac’s son (Abraham’s grandson) lied to get the ‘Blessing’ from Isaac. (See: GENESIS 27.) Lying is clearly a sin that follows from generation to generation. Sad. Not funny to God. A New Testament example of lying is from ACTS, Chapter 5. Here we find a married couple named Ananias and Sapphira. Having promised the church (God) that they would give all the proceeds from the sale of land, they kept some for themselves. Peter gave these inspired words: “You have not lied to men but to God.” Does God find lying funny when a
child of God lies? It is always a sin against God. We are his own children. We are to follow truth. In the Sermon on the Mount Jesus declares: “Simply let your ‘Yes’ be ‘Yes,’ and your ‘No’, ‘No’; anything beyond this comes from the evil one.” (JAMES repeats this wording in verse 5:12 and adds: “or you will be condemned.” Lying and deceiving is never to be found in God’s people. It will condemn us. The father of lies and liars wants us to make lying unimportant. “Just a little white lie”, he says. We are convinced that if truth be told and kept, this world would be changed immediately. The effects of truth telling and keeping would change all areas of our lives! Imagine no politician standing before the people and lying ever again. How much of a blessing would that be! But back to God’s people: If we speak and live by truth: 1. We would not allow Satan in our lives to guide us and beguile us. 2. We would allow God to be our life’s purpose. 3. Jesus the truth giver would be our Lord. 4. Our relationships with the brethren would be stronger and godly. Look at what Jesus says in REVELATION 21:8, “But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars—their place will be in the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.” All liars means all liars. Tragic. Please find a New Testament church that teaches truth. “All the churches of Christ send greetings.” Romans 16:16 Gary J Mattingly Fayetteville Church of Christ 513-875-3636

Dear Editor, I guess we have all heard about the "right to work" or as some slyly say "work place freedom". I have heard from very reliable sources that it isn't what it sounds like it is. It will destroy jobs, harm communities and strip workers of their rights. It is unsafe because it makes it harder to collectively bargain for lifesaving equipment, staffing and other safety issues for police officers and firefighters. It is unfair because it lets a small number of workers cheat by not paying their fair share of dues at the expense of workers who work hard and play by the rules. It is an attack on workers rights because the worker lose their voice to speak in the workplace by being stripped of collective bargaining rights. Workers will be intimidated into los-
ing their freedom of speech to point out potential safety issues in their workplace. And yes here it is again, this means less money, lower wages and fewer benefits for all of us in the middle class and those of us who would like to get up to the middle class. Now remember back to 2011 when we all had to fight against Senate Bill 5. Well this so called "right to work" is being pushed on us by Gov. Kasich, big business and wealthy special interest groups. So when you hear of it. It is not what we who are trying to stay in the middle class or move up to it want. That is what I have been hearing. Now why don't you get busy and check into this on your own. For united we stand divided we fall. Danny Books Sr.

Tearing Down the Wall: Better serving our Veterans in the digital age Reader thankful for Nearly 24 years ago, spend their time caring that honors their legacy Senior levy support American leadership for patients, not navigat- and service. I will con-
helped bring down the Berlin Wall without firing a shot. Now, our service members and veterans are up against a new wall, a wall of bureaucracy. This wall complicates nearly every facet of life as they transition from active duty service to veteran status. This Veterans Day, we must renew our commitment to those who have served us. Our task begins by ensuring that their medical records, which document years or decades of service, seamlessly follow them from uniformed to veteran status. This year, the House of Representatives is taking action to push both the Departments of Defense (DoD) and Veterans Affairs (VA) to realize this goal. Our troops face numerous challenges after they serve: transitioning to civilian life, finding a career, or continuing their education, to name just a few. Our veterans should not have to serve as couriers between the DoD and VA too. It’s an additional and unnecessary burden. We are all one nation and our agencies should operate like it. Unfortunately, in typical government fashion, our two biggest departments are still not fully capable of digitally communicating in the 21st century. Early in his Presidency, President Obama charged these two departments to “build a seamless system of integration with a single goal: when a member of the Armed Forced separates from the military, he or she will no longer have to walk paperwork from a DoD duty station to a local VA health cen-

ter; their electronic records will transition along with them and remain with them forever.” Unfortunately, this original vision of one shared system for all our past and pre sent service members has devolved into a series of missed milestones, shifting priorities, and ballooning budgets. The House Veterans’ Affairs Committee learned earlier this year that these failures have led President Obama and both departments to abandon the original goal of one system, and instead plan continued reliance on separate systems integrated together to connect electronic health records. I serv ed as an Army combat surgeon in Iraq and I still serve as a Reservist. I know that my fellow military members, when they retire, should not have to continue to wage war at home against bureaucracies and paperwork. And yet, a doctor treating veterans cannot seamlessly access the medical history of their patient because that history is housed in a separate Defense Department system. VA doctors report that in itial steps are improving this digital sharing, while still on separate systems. We can and must do better for our veterans. As a physician of 26 years, I have firsthand experience with electronic health record systems – my practice undertook the transition in 2012. I know that every doctor wants to

ing complex computer systems trying to hunt down vital medical histories. These frustrations won’t disappear until the federal government achieves its stated goal of building an integrated system. This year, the House of Representatives is actively working to tackle these issues through the bipartisan H.R. 1960, which I was proud to help pass the House this summer. Important sections call for basic interoperability capabilities within a year, meaning that doctor s on both sides will be able to readily view medical history files. By 2016, we are demanding full system integration between the two departments. These are essential steps towards realizing a system that seamlessly communicates medical history files between the departments, without forcing the burden on to the shoulders of our transitioning veterans. Ultimately, I believe one system will best serve our troops and veterans as they seek care, and full integration is steering the departments in the right direction. Fully integrating these electric health records isn’t just about helping transitioning veterans, it’s also essential to reducing our veterans’ disability backlog. We know that fully developed disability claims, those with complete medical history files, take half the amount of time to complete com pared to claims filed with incomplete or missing data. It’s discouraging for our troops, our veterans, and our doctors to face a wall of bureaucracy that hinders care. They deserve a lasting solution
tinue pushing both federal agencies towards an integrated, and ultimately shared, system for our service members, veteran and uniformed. *** Rep. Wenstrup, Staff, H eaded to Health Care Insurance Exchanges Meanwhile, President Obama and White House staff exempt Representative Brad Wenstrup announced this week that he and his staff will be entering the health insurance exchanges implemented under President Obama’s health care law beginning in January of 2014. As written, the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, requires all members of Congress and any “official ” staff to receive health insurance coverage through the Obamacare exchanges. Wenstrup described the move by saying “Congress must live by the laws it writes, and cannot expect to be treated differently from everyday Americans. I’m disappointed that President Obama and his staff refuse to join the health care exchanges that he forced upon millions of Americans. If it’s good enough for Congress and the American people, why isn’t it good enough for the President?” A month into the law’s implementation, Ohioans seeking coverage are still unable to use the federal website to obtain coverage. Rep. Wenstrup, a physician of 26 years, says he “remains committed to replacing Obamacare” and shrinking the federal government’s role in health care while replacing it with health care reforms that allow consumers to keep the ir insurance plans and doctors.

Finalizing the Farm Bill for Ohioans
In Ohio, one out of every seven jobs is connected to growing, processing, and distributing the food we eat. In fact, agriculture and food contribute more than $107 billion dollars to our state’s economy each year. That’s why, time and again—in roundtables and over coffee, on farms and at forums—Ohioans have told me that they need a strong farm bill. And that’s why I’m fighting for one. Recently, I was honored to be named a member of the farm bill conference committee that will work out the differences between the House and Senate versions of the bill. This means that I will be working with my Senate and House colleagues to help finalize a 2013 farm bill. Conference committee meetings begin this week, and in these meetings, I will fight to ensure that we pass a bill that benefits Ohio farmers, producers, taxpayers, and rural communities. The Senate, for the second year in a row, passed a strong, bipartisan bill that implements critical farm safety reforms and saves taxpayers $23 billion while investing in Ohio’s number one industry. This farm bill is forward thinking, yet realistic. Unfortunately, for two years, the House was unable to join the Senate in passing a bill. Last year, the House simply failed to act – a failure that hurt farmers and cost taxpayers. This year, the House broke a 40year bipartisan, farm bill tradition. While policy makers and farmers have recognized for decades that nutrition and food production are closely linked, for the first time ever, the House separated farm and nutrition programs into two, separate bills. This approach was opposed by Farm Bureau and more than 500 other agriculture, commodity, and rural development groups because
SENATOR SHERROD BROWN
they know that splitting the bill will hurt American agriculture. And when the Members of the House finally did pass a bill, they did it along party lines. Instead of passing the Senate’s bipartisan farm bill, the U.S. House of Representatives opted for a bill that fails to provide producers with long-term certainty and the smarter, more efficient safety net they deserve. To add insult to injury, the House finances this temporary solution with significant cuts to long-term investments in soil, water, and wildlife conservation. When I talk to farmers around the state, I hear how the House of Representatives’ inability to pass a comprehensive farm bill has lead to uncertainty; it makes planning business more difficult and has also affected planting decisions. This farm bill is a jobs and innovation bill, an economic relief and development bill, and it affects every American every day This bill not only strengthens the farm safety net, but it will invest in Ohio’s rural communities. Whether it is a water/sewer project in Henry County, a low interest loan to Buckeye Power, or bringing broadband to southeast Ohio, this bill is too important for our state to let partisan politics get in the way. The nation’s agricultural sector cannot afford another short term extension that funds some programs but not others. It’s time to pass a bill that saves taxpayers, ensures that farmers are planting for the market and not the program, and continues to invest in rural Ohio.

In the book of Jonah we learn about the city of Nineveh. An event took place there approximately 800 years before Christ which most of us have heard of. It is a truly great event that took place in a major city of the Assyrians. The Bible calls it a great city for no other reason than it was a huge city in population. In fact, in chapter 4 and verse 11 it tells us: “...wherein are more than sixscore thousand persons that cannot discern between their right hand and their left hand...” That is at least one hundred and twenty thousand small children! It says: “...wherein are more than...” therefore, if you count the older children and the adults there would probably be over a million people in that city. That was a huge city for that time. How could one preacher affect so many people? But God only called one man to go there and he didn’t even want to go! His name was Jonah and God told him: “Arise, go to Nineveh, that great city, and cry against it; for their wickedness is come up before me.” God will only tolerate wickedness to a certain level and then it is either repent or destruction. America is pushing the boundaries of wickedness right now! Nineveh was pushing those boundaries and God was ready to wipe out the entire city. But, he sent Jonah to give a warning. Jonah did not have the benefits of television, radio, or even a printing press or telephone! How was he to reach that many people? And not only that, he didn’t even like those people; they were Gentiles! So, what did he do? He tried to run away from God. We all know the story of Jonah and the whale. God has His own ways of dealing with runaways! But as we know, Jonah changed his mind about running when he found himself in the belly of that whale. Then God caused that whale to spit him out on the beach near Nineveh and off Jonah went to preach what God had said. He could have saved himself a lot of trouble if he would have only done what he was told in the first place. That goes for most of us also! Look at verse 1 of chapter 2: “Then Jonah prayed unto the Lord his God out of the fish's belly.” Most people have the tendency to wait until they have a big prob-

lem before they break down and pray to God for help; and Jonah was no different. However, after Jonah had surrendered to God’s will and after God had caused the whale to vomit Jonah out upon dry land, God once again told him what He wanted Him to do. This time Jonah did as he was told. Wouldn’t it be better if we surrendered to God’s will before we got ourselves into trouble? Well, anyhow, God told Jonah to go. That is precisely what we are to do; we are to go and tell people about God; we are to go and give the warning to repent or suffer the consequences. Jonah gave God’s warning to the people of Nineveh: “...Yet forty days, and Nineveh shall be overthrown.” Now do not forget that what God had done to the Egyptians, to Sodom and Gomorrah, and to other cities had spread by word of mouth to the then known world. They knew about God; they just didn’t do anything about it. Do you know where America is today? We are in the same place and in the same shape! We are just ignoring God. But God got Nineveh’s attention! Look what happened: verse 5 chapter 3: “So the people of Nineveh believed God, and proclaimed a fast, and put on sackcloth, from the greatest of them even to the least of them.” Wouldn’t it be great if we, the people of America, were at least as wise as the people of Nineveh? What will it take to get our attention? Look at verse 10 of chapter 3: “And God saw their works, that they turned from their evil way; and God repented of the evil, that he had said that he would do unto them; and he did it not.” Wake up people! The warning has been given. What will you do with it. As an individual, will you get saved? I hope so. As a nation will we repent and turn back to God? What do you think?

RULH levy vote fails, district may seek another vote
With the failure of the 2.6 mill general permanent improvement levy at the polls on Nov. 5, the RipleyUnion-Lewis-Huntington School District is back to square one on purchasing new buses and upgrading technology at the schools. Superintendent Linda Naylor said that the board will now have to reaccess and prioritize what direction it will take. “We will probably begin right away to consider running another levy, in hopes of convincing a few more people just how important this levy is to the school and the students,” Naylor said.
“It was very frustrating to think that just 36 more votes would have passed the levy.” The final vote count will
not be official until Nov. 22 when provisional ballots are counted. The 2.6 mill levy was deemed necessary for the school district, after the Ohio budget was released and the district learned that it would only be receiving an additional $68,380 over a two year period. The RULH 2.6 mill levy would have generated about $260,000 annually, and would have been specifically earmarked for new buses (for an aging fleet), new technology, textbooks and facility upgrades. “I believe part of the reason the levy failed is because voters didn’t understand that district had a 3 mill levy that ended this year, which
to the district in the short time he as served. “I can’t help but feel a little sad and at the same time a happy for Adam,” Naylor said. “He is from Hillsboro, so I can certainly understand why he accepted the position, he’s going home. But I have to admit, he will be missed at RULH. He is a very smart young man, he’s personable and he’s intelligent. He is the right person to handle school finances.” Naylor said she is already working on finding a replacement for Zink and will be running an ad as soon as possible. She plans on working closely with Educational Services in the county. She said they are anxious to help find his replacement. Naylor, herself, just
took over as superintendent for RULH in July 2013 replacing Patrick Kimble. She admitted that this is a rough time for the district to lose its treasurer. Zink is scheduled to stay until Feb. 1, 2014. “I feel like I’m going home and I’m real happy about it,” Zink admitted, “My family all lives in Hillsboro and I graduated from Hillsboro High School in 2002. I have to admit though, it has been great working here at RULH. I’ve never seen so much cooperation and team work in a school district in the administration. Everyone of the staff are dedicated to these students. It’s been a great place to work, and I have no regrets.” Zink said he was not

meant, even if the levy passed, they would have been paying less on their taxes,” Naylor said. “This levy was very important to ensuring a good education for our students.” Naylor said her biggest disappointment is that the students need new technology to help them keep up with other students now, rather than playing catch-up later. Naylor also said that members of the ‘Citizens for RULH Students’ group worked very hard to get the work out to voters, helping them to understand the importance of the levy passing and that their taxes would not go up if it passed. “The last levy that was on
the ballot was to build the high school,” Naylor added. “But that levy has now expired and there are no funds available to maintain our schools.” Naylor and board members Richard Applegate, Jeffrey Cluxton, Glenda Huff, Robert Carpenter and Barry Sims would like to thank everyone who worked to get the levy passed. “It’s back to the drawing table,” she added, “we may be down, but we are not out.”

County voters approve Clermont DD levy
BY KRISTIN ROVER
Clermont County voters renewed a .75 mill levy for the Clermont County Board of Developmental Disabilities Nov. 5. The levy passed with 66.24 percent, or 23,003 voters, in favor of the levy and 33.76 percent, or 11,726 voters, against the levy. “We are feeling good and very, very thankful because this is really important to us,” Sharon Woodrow, superintendent of Clermont DD, said as election results were coming in. According to Woodrow, the levy generates approximately $2.9 million for Clermont DD, which pro-
vides a variety of services for disabled individuals including adult programs, specialized childcare, respite in the home, camps, transportation services, and more. Woodrow said Clermont DD is funded by local and state funds but more than half of their funds come from levies. She said especially with reductions in state funding, the levy is crucial to providing services at Clermont DD. “This is one of those situations where if we had lost the money we would have to go in and cut services because all of our services are predicated on that money continuing,” Woodrow said. Woodrow said Clermont
DD serves around 1,500 people each day through their various programs. Woodrow said the levy for services was first on the ballot in 2003 and was renewed again in 2007. She said she is thankful for the support of the community again this year. “Thank you so much for helping the people in this community with disabilities,” Woodrow said. “It means more to them than it does to us and we would thank everyone in the community on behalf of them.” Election results are unofficial until certified by the Clermont County Board of Elections.
said he has worked with district officials to make many operational changes at the district since he took over. Prior to the election, Kline said they also worked to improve efficiency at the district, found additional ways to save money, and have worked to improve communication with residents in the district to receive feedback and suggestions. Now that the levy has failed, Kline said he is concerned about what will be next. “Unfortunately we have taken a huge step closer to fiscal emergency,” Kline said. Kline said the issue for the district continues to be a revenue problem rather than a spending problem. He said they are already
at state minimums, and won’t be able to cover an additional $7.2 million in cuts to funding that is expected to be lost in the coming years. Kline said that some of the students who came to the school to hear the results of the election were literally in tears when they heard the results. “For a kid, this is devastating,” Kline said. “I see kids and they want things like art, music and P.E. to be part of their experience. They want career ready programs. Unfortunately we can’t look at bringing any of those things back.” Election results are unofficial until certified by the Clermont County Board of Elections.

High expectations and high motors were not enough to elevate the Amelia Barons back towards the top of the Southern Buckeye Conference in 2013, but head coach Randy Hospelhorn and the staff of the Barons along with a core of returning players will be doing their best to bring prominence back to Clough Pike in 2014. “2-8 is not what we expected,” Hospelhorn said of his team’s year-end record. “It was a trying season. None of us are happy about the way we finished. Expectations were high, but I can’t approach it any different than that. “Even though we were small in numbers, we prepared every week like it was the championship game and we expected to win. We just didn’t.” The Barons season came to an end on Friday, Nov. 1 with a 10-point loss to Western Hills, 24-14. A letdown in the second quarter allowed the Mustangs to amass all 24 of their points, mostly coming on big plays while Amelia couldn’t sustain a drive to the goal line, racking up a

few first downs before eventually stalling. Junior quarterback Tyler Nicodemus threw 17 times, completing five for 51 yards and a late score. He also ran seven times for 33 yards. Senior Cohen Canter carried the lion’s share of the load, toting the ball 10 times for 68 yards and a touchdown. Junior fullback TJ Troxell also carried the rock nine times for 33 yards. Nicodemus and Troxell will lead a host of juniors returning next season for the Barons and Hospelhorn is confident that the results on the field next year will be the result of the hard work that his team will put in this offseason. “Our junior class got a lot of playing time (this year),” Hospelhorn said. “(Aside for Troxell and Nicodemus), Carter Hounshell had 120 tackles from the linebacker position. TJ Reed did well receiving; Wade Hauser stepped up and had a good year. “I know the junior class will be good leaders because they’ll get in (the weight room) and work. They had a lot of gains in their squats and cleans and all that, so I know they’ll be good leaders for the sophomores and juniors that we’re going to have.” As the juniors and underclassmen look towards the next season, seven seniors saw their high school careers come to an end. Canter, along with Donnie Sellers, Gary Sunday, Jake Miller, Logan Hughes, Naeem Shalash and Nick Pangallo suited up in the blue and white for the last
time on Nov. 1 and Hospelhorn said their commitment and hard work in the program left the team far better than how they found it. “(The seniors) came out and really stepped up and gave a big effort,” the coach said. “(Miller) broke his collar bone and rehabbed really hard to get back for the last few games, which is a tribute to him and his work ethic. “We had to move some people around (because of injuries) into places they haven’t played too much. Having to move people around, the seniors stepped up and played well. My hat’s off to all the seniors for their effort, I can’t discount any of them. In one way or another, they all contributed.” With the seniors walking out the door, spots have opened for some underclassmen to fill their roles. Hospelhorn said that he had a few sophomores and freshmen see significant playing time this season and he hopes that they can build upon their experience to help the team in the future. Sophomores Jake Pangallo and Jake Helton gained some invaluable experience in just their second year in the program. Cage Meyer, Christian Samson and David Collins, freshmen all, were given a baptism by fire in their first taste of high school football, playing significant minutes in positions that sometimes were new to them. Meyer, a safety by trade, was moved to defensive end when injuries stipulated and Collins move from defensive line to offensive tackle.

Etienne gets to share Israel trip “Our Town” November 15-17 with Hamersville 2nd graders
October's community resource person, Debbie Etienne, shared her trip to Israel with second graders at Hamersville School. Debbie began her presentation with the Hebrew word, Shalom. She said that Shalom means hello and also good-by. So she greeted students with "Shalom". Students listened intently as she showed her passport and explained that you need a passport to travel to other countries. Debbie showed photographs of the airplane she flew in, and the many places she visited. Some of the places she visited were Bethlehem, the Sea of Galilee, the Jordan Rive r, Garden of Gethsemane, the Dead Sea, and several other historically Biblical sites. Debbie toured an olive garden that is about 3,000 years old. She told second graders that Bethlehem is where Jesus was born. Debbie compared and contrasted life in Israel to life in the United States. She showed pictures of how Jewish women dress, pictures of their kitchens, how they eat a lot of fish and often times with the head left on, how people

Narrating throughout, the Stage
Manager (Benjam in Gullett) shows the audience the circle of life portrayed in each of the three acts: growing up, adulthood, and death. First appearing on Broadway in 1938 to wide acclaim and winning the Pulitzer Prize, “Our Town” celebrates its 75th anniversary this year. The SSCC Theatre production, directed by Rainee Angles, also features the talents of Stormi Bledsoe, Bob Brown, Bryan Kessinger, D.J.

Michael does Bat Jamboree
Josh Michael was October's Storyteller of the Month for grade two students at Hamersville School. Mr. Michael arrived in a vampire bat costume to read the story, Bat Jamboree by author Kathi Appelt and illustrator Melissa Sweet. To begin, Mr. Michael read the title of the book and then asked students what the author and illustrator's jobs are in creating a book. Second graders were very attentive to the joyfully enthusiastic
text and enhancing illustrations. Bat Jamboree is a counting book about bats entertaining with ten fabulous acts. It is held at a drive-in movie every year. Each year the bats top themselves when they perform the grand finale. In this year's grand finale, the bats build a pyramid. The book begins by counting forward to ten and then counting backward from ten. Bat Jamboree is a wonderful counting book for students.

The Jackson Township trustee winners were Tim Ratliff with 224 votes and James Rau with 177 votes, while the winners in Pleasant Township were Frank Helbling with 720 votes and Dennis Daulton with 594 votes. Sterling Township saw Joseph Horton elected with 356 votes and Steve Mezger with 249 votes. The Union Township winners were Mark Kinder with 469 votes and Martin Plymesser with 400 votes. Three school districts in the county also had contested races for school board. For the Western Brown district, the two winners were newcomer Tracy Oâ€™Hara with 934 votes and incumbent Lynette Garrett with 890 votes. For the RULH district, the three winners were Glenda Huff with 996 votes, Barry Sims with 822 votes and Jeffery White with 721 votes. Jeffrey Wilson was also elected to fulfill and unexpired term. Two members were also elected to the FayettevillePerry school board. They are Brian Kleemeyer with 539 votes and Jim Holden with 448 votes. Regarding levies and other questions on the ballot, The RULH permanent improvement levy failed by a vote of 841 against and 805 for. There are only 13 provisional ballots that apply to that vote, so the levy will likely fail when the vote is certified. The Village of Higginsport Current Expenses levy failed by a vote of 37 against to 33 in favor. There are only two provisional ballots at play in that vote, so the levy will likely officially fail as well. The Sardinia Electric Aggregation vote also failed by a vote of 48 to 45. That total may change due to provisional ballots. The local liquor option failed in Hamersville by a vote of 147 to 122. All other fire, police, cemetery and local options passed in the county.

‘Third time’s the charm,’ or so they say, but not in the case of the 5 mill additional levy which was on the Village of Higginsport’s ballot on Nov. 5. The village’s third attempt to pass a levy for operation of the village has failed yet again, and according to Higginsport Mayor Joel Herrmann, this levy failure could cause serious problems for the village that will have an effect on all its residents. “The results from this election indicate that only 70 of the approximately 130 registered voters in the village actually voted on
Nov. 5,” Mayor Herrmann said. “Failure of the levy (now for the third time) will certainly impede the ability of the village to address matters of concern such as vandalism in the park, street and drainage issues and upkeep of village property.” According to the Brown County Board of Elections, there are only two provisional ballots still outstanding in the levy election. Even if both provisional votes are ‘yes’ votes, they will not change the outcome of the vote. The Village of Higginsport has about 250 residents according to the 2010 census.
Aberdeen police make theft arrest In a press release from the Aberdeen Police Department, on Nov. 6, at approximately 2 p.m., Aberdeen Police Chief Caudill and Sergeant Nickolas of the Aberdeen Police Department began looking for a suspect, Raymond Rudy, in connection to a theft. The theft investigation occurred on Nov. 5. Chief Caudill and Sgt. Nickolas received information that
Rudy was in Bramel Trailer Park and the two went to question the suspect. Upon questioning Mr. Rudy, it was learned that he was also wanted by the Brown County Sheriff’s office as Clermont County in connection to possible manufacturing of methamphetamine. Rudy was then transported to Brown County pending charges.
According to Herrmann, with all the state funding that has been cut, the village simply cannot continue to function. “We have a scheduled council meeting Nov. 11,” Herrmann continued. “Village council will need to take a careful look to determine just how far the available financial resources can be stretched with an eye toward minimizing the impact on services such as street lighting that the village supplies.” Herrmann said the impact of the failed levy is going to be bad for its residents. “We have looked at every way possible to save the village money,” he added. “Our clerk has been working for the village for free, trying to help. Now it just seems like maybe people don’t want to live in Higginsport. I just don’t understand why it failed.” Herrmann said that in 2015, a small 1.3 mills levy will expire, which is the only revenue that is keeping the village afloat. “There is a lot of maintenance that needs completed in this village,” he said, “but I can’t see any of it getting accomplished. I believe that we need to begin making plans to get the 5 mills levy back on the ballot and try again. “It will have to be a scheduled election because
the village doesn’t have $2,000 for a special election.” The next opportunity for a levy vote will be in May of 2014. Even if the vote passes, the earliest the village could begin to collect any revenue would be February of 2015 after six months of collections between July and December of 2014. “Right now, we’re going to try and hang on and do the best we can to keep operating, but I can tell you, it isn’t going to be easy. At least this failed levy shouldn’t have an impact on the continued operation of the village fire department”, Herrmann said.
Beekeepers to meet
The Brown County Beekeepers Association will meet on November 12th at 7 p.m. in the Western Brown High School. The November program will be on "Beekeeping liability". The meeting will include the election of our 2014 officers. This is the last meeting in 2013 and will conclude with desserts. Please bring your favorite dessert to share. If unable to attend the first meeting in 2014 will begin on February 11th.

race is likely. An automatic recount is called for when the vote totals are within one half of one percent of each other. In this case, 2119 people voted. That sets the automatic recount margin at ten votes. Triplett submitted the following statement about the election to the Brown County Press “First, I would like to thank those that voted for me. I appreciate every single vote. I figured that the race would be close, with all six candidates having never won an election. I didn't envision it being this close though. We will just have to wait and see if there is any change in the results due to the provisional ballot count. Either way, I would like to compliment everyone running for Village Council on running a good race. I know a lot of people worked really hard and I believe you can see that in the results.” Morrison also said she was also thankful for the support given to her over the campaign process. “I would to thank everyone who supported me including my family and friends and everyone who voted for me. A special thanks goes out to everyone who donated their time to help me with my campaign. I look forward in being able to serve Georgetown in whatever capacity I am able to once these votes are finalized”, Morrison said. Susan Bean said that she was hopeful of winning one of the two council seats, and pointed out the importance of participating in the democratic process.

“The importance of one vote can’t be overestimated. That’s the teaching moment of this experience”, Bean said. “I’d like to give a big thank you to the people who supported me. I had a lot of fine help from my friends and I greatly appreciate that, whether I win or lose.” Sarah Eagan also responded to a request for comment via e-mail, writing; “I would like to thank everyone who voted and supported me. I look forward to continuing to serve the Village of Georgetown for the next four years.” Cornette submitted the following statement on the election via e-mail. “I believe it to be a privilege to have been elected to Village Council by the residents of Georgetown and for that I must first give thanks. I grew up in Georgetown, graduated from Georgetown High School and now have two boys growing up to be GMen as well. Raising a community is much like raising a family, you certainly do not get there alone and that is why I am committed to listening to any concerns or suggestions that may arise. I would like to encourage more people to attend the village council meetings because citizen input is very important and certainly wanted. I want Georgetown to be a great community to raise a family and simply put, that is my agenda. I believe that my skillset and professional experience will help to keep Georgetown moving in that direction.”

“Back in 2007 the three local agencies, the council, ABCEO and the senior center all faced devastating budget cuts that forced them to request approval from the commissioners to allow the 0.8 mill levy to be placed on the ballot,” Lang said. “All three of these agencies help senior residents of Brown County. “In 2008 Brown County voters supported this levy and because it was for a five-year period it was now up for renewal and voters again supported the levy.” Senior services available from the agency include providing transportation for senior citizens who can no longer drive. Often senior citizens just need help getting to and from doctors appointment or buying groceries. Meals on Wheels is just one of the programs provided by ABCEO as well
as: • WIC • HEAP • housing • Head Start • early Head Start • home care • Help Me Grow • transportation • weatherization • child and family health clinic • Adams Brown Recycling • Workforce Connections • business development • adult daycare. “I would personally like to thank Brown County voters for their support of this levy and their confidence in the agencies providing the needed services,” Lang said, “I would also like to thank my staff, AdamsBrown Counties Economic Opportunities Inc., and Northern Brown Senior Center for the great work they do providing services. “I am glad to see our community show their support to our older adults.”

construction of the water plant. Common Pleas Judge Scott Gusweiler will decide the amount of damages to be awarded to the Shinn Brothers company later this month. The company has asked for approximately $800,000. That company has already won a judgment against the village for breach of contract. Village council is currently considering an ordinance for a settlement with bondholder Annette Mineer. It calls for the village to give Mineer the $2,742,886.27 currently being held by U.S. Bank. The village is also agreeing to return 62.5 percent of the estate taxes that Mineer is expected to pay the village. That amount will be approximately $400,000. The agreement also calls for the bond money to pay Moodys of Dayton approximately $70,000. Moody’s drilled two wells on Mineers property and has not been paid to date. The company has filed a civil suit against the village for non-payment. The agreement must have the approval of council to be official. The Internal Revenue Service has also been paying 45 percent of the interest on the bond money as part of a federal stimulus program. Those payments amount to approximately $200,000. If the IRS demands repay-
ment, Judge Gusweiler awards Shinn Brothers $400,000 (half of what they’ve asked for) and the village pays Mineer an estimated $400,000, the decision to not build the water plant will cost the village in the neighborhood of one million dollars. Wilson said he would like to thank those who voted for him. “I am for the people of Aberdeen and what the majority of them are in favor of”, Wilson said. Phillips also said he appreciated all the support he received. “I want to thank my wife, my two daughters and my mother for the support they gave me. I also want to thank all of the voters in the village for their support. It’s time to get things on track and move forward.” Meadows is returning to council after serving on council for twelve years and four years as mayor. “I’m for building the water treatment plant. I don’t think those who are opposed to it realize what they will lose if they lose the water system”, he said. Meadows added that he is concerned that the state will take over operation of the village if the general fund is not able to cover the costs involved with not building the water plant. He also said he appreciated all the support he received from family, friends and supporters during the race for village council.

Now is the time to control poison hemlock
Control Poison Hemlock Now or Soon In the past few years we have had Poison Hemlock spreading throughout the Adams, Brown and Highland Counties at a rapid pace in some areas. This is the weed that gets over your head by about the end of May with white flowers, and the stalks are green with purple on them. Used to be just around the edges of fields, roads and creeks, but it has expanded out into fields in recent years. These plants have started to grow. They can be found in the same areas that you had this problem weed last spring. Now that we have had a first frost, most of the grass is not as green as it was, but for the most part many of the broadleaf weeds show even more damage. This is not the case with Poison Hemlock. It is dark green and in some areas I saw it nearly boot high in the past few days. Herbicides that will control this weed include 2,4D and crossbow among others. HAY BALE FIRES STILL A THREAT CHECK STACKS, BARNS FOR HEATED BALES The following showed up in the most recent University of Kentucky Forage News. I think this is worth reading, especially this year. There were many fields of hay cut later this year than in a normal year for Southern Ohio. I have recently fed some round bales that were baled in late September, while waiting on the damaged johnsongrass to become safe to graze. The bales were NOT stored inside, and I am glad. None of them caught fire, but some were like caramelized inside. Recent reports of hay bale fires should remind growers to continue to monitor stacks and storage barns. In August, 300 round bales burned near Lockwood, MT, according to a report in the Billings Gazette. Last week, firefighters battled a semi load of hay on fire in Iowa, caught on video by the Des Moines Register, and a “massive” fire at Haykingdom Inc., near Winters, CA. An estimated $6 million worth of hay, stored in the hay export company’s barns, was destroyed, according to a report at KTVU.com. “Generally, hay fires occur within six weeks after baling, but have been known to occur even after a year,” according to a University of California Alfalfa & Forage News blog. They begin through a process called “spontaneous combustion … which depends on the initial moisture content of the
DAVID DUGAN OSU EXTENSION SERVING ADAMS, BROWN AND HIGHLAND CO.
hay, the ease with which moisture can dissipate from the bales and environmental conditions.” The blog also mentions that the frequency of hay fires has increased as more growers have switched to large square bales. In addition, as drought worsens in Arkansas, growers there should be concerned about the potential for round bale fires, remind state public safety officials. Round bale fires, says Jon Barry, a University of Arkansas Extension forester and volunteer firefighter, can be particularly tough to put out. One major challenge, he says, is that round bales are assembled in layers, like tightly compressed rolls of paper. “Because the hay is tightly compressed, a
round bale doesn't burn intensely or quickly. It is a smoldering fire that burns up into the bale. The bale has to be taken apart to get to the fire so it can be put out. And all of it has to be put out or it will flare up again.” Where bales are located and on what terrain determine how bale fires will be extinguished. If a burning bale is in a hayfield, “the most effective approach is to get the farmer to tear the bale apart with his tractor,” Barry says. “If the terrain is flat, sometimes we just push the bale along and unroll it. Since we are going to spray water all over and into the bale, it is a total loss to the farmer anyway.” Grass, compressed in round bales, forms a distinct, tough grain pattern almost like wood grain, he says. “When we are trying to get into the bale to find the smoldering area, we have to work across the grain, and that’s hard work,” he says.

Learning more about SARS and MERS
In 2002 and 2003 over 700 people died from a new disease that came to be known as severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS). SARS was a new disease that suddenly appeared in Southeast Asia and spread globally through air-travel. Now, 10 years later, another new four letter disease is making an appearance on the world stage. This new disease is MERS. MERS stands for Middle East respiratory syndrome and was first seen in Saudi Arabia in 2012. Both SARS and MERS belong to a family of viruses called coronavirus. Coronavirus is a family of viruses. They get their name because they look like they have a halo or corona when viewed through an electron microscope. They are common in mammals and birds and commonly cause respiratory infections. In humans, the common cold is caused by a coronavirus. Because coronaviruses infect such a wide variety of birds and mammals, their ability to jump species is enhanced. The SARS virus is thought to have come from a bat, and MERS is also very similar genetically to a coronavirus that infects another species of bats. When a virus or bacteria is able to infect multiple
TOM CALLAHAN, RPH
species, it is said to have a disease reservoir. For instance, there are still outbreaks of plague because there is a naturally occurring reservoir of plague in squirrels, rats and other rodents. On the other hand, we were able to eradicate smallpox because there was not an animal reservoir for that disease. According to the World Health Organization, in Saudi Arabia from August 2012 to August 2013, there were 74 cases of MERS with 39 fatalities. Although that is more than a 50 percent fatality rate, it should be remembered that only the most severe cases would have ended up in hospitals to have the cause of their disease determined. MERS starts out with a fever and cough like most other respiratory illnesses, but instead of just infecting the upper respiratory system, it causes pneumonia. Since the pneumonia is caused by a virus, antibiotics would be useless. The only treatment would be supportive measures such as using a respirator until the patient’s own body is able to clear the virus.
The exact method of person-to-person spread of the disease is not yet known, but since it is an upper respiratory disease it is presumed that the transmission would be similar to the common cold. Usually these diseases are transmitted by aerosolized droplets. That means a sick person coughs or sneezes, which places thousands of tiny droplets into the air. Each contains thousands of viruses even though these droplets are so small that they can float for hours on tiny air currents. The World Health Organization, along with national health agencies, are keeping an eye out for what may happen this fall. Every year, Muslims make a pilgrimage to Mecca called Hajj. Each year about three million people participate in the Hajj. If there truly are both mild and severe cases of MERS, then it is entirely possible that there will be many mildly infected persons that could infect other pilgrims and these people will be flying back to their home countries after the Hajj.

comes to the Scanlon-Kelly VFW Post 5920. “Our VFW (Veterans of Foreign Wars) was first organized on February 15, 1946 with 52 charter members,” Huber said. “The last of those first members just passed away in 2010. Post 5920 is the oldest VFW in Brown County. It got its name in honor of two local veterans who died in war.” Huber said that Eugene Scanlon was killed in WW I in 1918. World War II Veteran Paul Kelly, also a Perry Township resident, was killed in action in 1943. Huber said that Kelly was one of his distant cousins who was raised on Anderson-State Road near St. Martin. Both Kelly and Scanlon are buried at St. Patrick Cemetery across from the community park. “Scanlon-Kelly VFW was very active, right up to the Korean War,” Huber said. “With the Vietnam War, a lot of the early charter members and some of the elder men, had passed away, and now we are down to 20 members.” He continued, “The average age of our members is 40, some are older and some are younger. I personally feel that so many of our young veterans just don’t want to get involved, some just want to forget their time in action. I think that’s sad because all veterans have a mutual bond.” Huber said he became involved in the VFW in the 1970’s after returning from Panama Canal Zone as a member of the United States Air Force. “A friend of mine recommended the VFW to me and I joined,” Huber said with a chuckle, “Then in 2000 I was voted in as Commander of the VFW, and I’ve been there ever since.” Huber said that the VFW currently meets at the Township Hall for their meetings. It is active in participating in community and school activities. “On Monday, Veterans Day, we’ll be up at Fayetteville-Perry School for a flag presentation,” he said. We’ve recently sponsored a girl and a boy for Boy State and Girl State.” Boy State and Girl State is an educational program through the American Legion where students take

It also plans to hold an essay contest for the 2018 sesquicentennial celebration of the village. Huber said one of the issues with the local VFW that concerns him is the lack of a canteen where members can gather. He added that there has been a lot of talk that a group at Lake Lorelei could be organizing an American Legion. “This is a rural area, and there aren’t too many veterans in this area that are eligible to be members of the VFW,” he continued. “American Legions accepts Veterans rather they’ve been in a combat zone or not. We’ve been holding our VFW together, we’ve just recently added two new
members and we’ve got one more member considering joining from the Lake Lorelei area.” Huber would like to invite any veteran who has served in combat to call him and talk about joining the VFW. He can be reached at (513) 875-3343.

Rockets miss playoffs with 8-2 record
E V E N
The Fayetteville-Perry Rockets capped their season off with a victory over the Batavia Bulldogs on Nov. 1 with a final score of 15-7. The Rockets finished the regular season with a 8-2 record. The game was tense and emotional at times. Fayetteville came out with incredible offensive plays and a dominating defense, with the score 15-7 by halftime. In the third quarter, the Rocket defense took over. Fayetteville senior Cody Shaw showed his abilities on both offense and defense, running hard and stopping the Bulldogs offense with incredible ferocity. The Rockets defense seemed to be affecting the way the Bulldogs were playing, with Batavia accumulating false starts and penalties. The Rockets defense waned in the fourth quarter, but they rallied to hold off the Bulldogs on a critical 4th down at the ten yard line with under three minutes to go, stopping a potential game tying score. The Bulldogs had possession with 1:20 to go and the game was getting tense, when the Rockets intercepted the ball. The crowd erupted as they knew their team had clinched the game. The players celebrated their win on the field by the traditional dumping of a cooler of water on Coach Greers, then the players and coaches excited the field through a tunnel of applause from excited fans, jubilant at how far they have come as a team. When Coach Geers was asked about the excitement of the win after the game, he said with emotion, “I am incredibly proud of his team. They deserve all the credit and worked hard all season long. We started seven months ago on the journey, and every ounce of hard work led to this moment and it paid off.” Geers continued, “The program is growing in an upward direction; going from past seasons records of, 2-8, 3-7, and now 8-2. The kids deserve all the credit and did a phenomenal job, I feel lucky to be a part of it.” Unfortunately after the Rockets hard fought season, they will not get a seed in the playoffs. The top eight teams in each division received a seed from the OHSAA Football Computer Ratings on Nov. 3. The Rockets were just shy, finishing in ninth place. The Rockets are looking forward to improving next season, by doing what they have been doing, working hard every game.

Western Brown junior linebacker Josh Young (48) scored two touchdowns on short yardage goal line runs during the win against the Norwood Indians Nov. 1. The Broncos finished the regular season 10-0 and won the league championship.
Broncos undefeated, to host first playoff game BY Brandon Barb The Brown County Press
After losing their final two games -- against Batavia and Norwood -last season, the Western Brown Broncos ended the year with a bad taste in their mouths. The losses gave the Broncos an 8-2 record and kept them out of the playoffs. This year, it’s a different story. On Nov. 1, the Broncos beat the Norwood Indians 48-14 to finish out their regular season 100, and clinch the Southern Buckeye Conference championship. The win also gave the Broncos home field advantage in the first round of the Division III, Region 10 playoffs. “I’ve dreamed about this since I was a kid,” Western Brown senior quarterback Devyn Wood said. “Getting to
the point where I can lead my team to 10-0 and be league champs is the greatest feeling in the world.” Western Brown senior linebacker Derrick McIntosh said “It’s insane. Its the greatest feeling the world to accomplish this with a group of guys who are like your brothers.” Emotions were high for both teams during the game, so much so a few punches were thrown at one point, but everything calmed down in the second half. “It feels great to redeem the losses from last year. Things got personal last time and we knew coming it might get a bit chippy and we were prepared for it even though things did get a little out of hand,” Wood said. Wood made a statement on the field, accounting for 600 total
yards -- 157 on the ground and 443 through the air. He threw four touchdown passes. Once again the balls was spread around to nearly every Bronco receiver. Junior Christian Dawson caught 10 passes for 180 yards and one touchdown. Sophomore Eean Hornung had six receptions for 96 yards. Junior Chaz Patten brought in eight balls for 80 yards and one touchdown. Senior Jarred Haggerty had seven receptions, 70 yards and one touchdown. Senior Nick Osborne also had one receiving touchdown. Wood ended the regular season leading the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky area in passing yards with 3,749. The second most was about 1,000 yards behind. Dawson is second in the area in receiving yards
with 1006, Hornung is third with 966. It wasn’t all offense though. The Bronco defense showed how much they have improved at making stops, causing turnovers and keeping their offense in a comfortable position. Western Brown senior linebacker Derrick McIntosh accounted for 13 solo tackles, while junior defensive back Logan Nuhn added another interception to the Bronco season total -12. McIntosh also scored a touchdown on a short yardage run. With 114 tackles on the year, McIntosh is leading the team. “We’ve definitely turned into a really good defense,” McIntosh said. “Everything has been clicking and falling into place [for us].” While it is exciting to be league champs and
have that 10-0 record, the Broncos have a tough challenge to overcome in their first home playoff game in school history. The Broncos will be hosting the Thurgood Marshall Cougars, out of the Dayton area, on Nov. 8. Even though the Cougars have a 6-3 record and are ranked fifth in Region 10 -Western Brown is fourth -- they aren’t going to be pushovers. Thurgood won their division as well. Western Brown Head Coach Evan Dreyer said. “They [Thurgood] were in the playoffs last year and advanced, but every Friday night is different in Ohio. Hopefully, we play a great football game.”
UC Clermont Cougars volleyball 5th in national tourney The UC Clermont Volleyball Team concluded their outstanding regular season with an at-large bid to the United States Collegiate Athletic Association (USCAA) national championship tournament in Canton, NY. The selection was the eighth consecutive trip the Cougars have made to this prestigious event. Clermont was seeded fifth overall and placed in Pool A for the first round robin phase of the event. The Cougars opened play against Penn State-Fayette – the only other Division II program selected for the Division I tourney. Clermont pulled out a tight three set win in this opening match to claim unofficial bragging rights as the highest rated D-II program in the USCAA for 2013. The remainder of Pool A featured tight losses to top seeded Marygrove, eventual national champion Daemon and Carlow University. These results placed UC Clermont fourth in their pool and al-
lowed them to advance to the Elite Eight elimination round. The Cougars have advanced to at least this point in all eight USCAA tournaments in which they played. The fourth place finish matched the Cougars against Florida College – the first place team in Pool B and the eventual national runner-up. Clermont saved their best game of the tournament for the third set of this quarterfinal, but this effort was not enough to overcome Florida. The Lady Cougars finished the tournament tied for fifth place. “I am very proud of these athletes and their accomplishments on and off the court,” said Head Coach Joe Harpring. "They overcame numerous injuries and faced a challenging schedule. Through it all, they put together one of the best records in the history of the UC Clermont volleyball program," added Harpring. Several UC Clermont
players were honored at the USCAA Tournament banquet as a reward for their stellar regular season accomplishments. The USCAA named Taylor Herrmann (Glen Este) Academic All-American, Amber Lawrence (Felicity) Honorable Mention All- American, Heather Rowland (Norwood) 2nd Team All-American and Becca Walton (Mercy) 1st Team All-American. These four awards represent the best ever “haul” for the Cougar program and reflect well on the efforts of the entire team during the 2013 campaign. Student-athletes earn All-Academic honors by being an upperclassmen who has earned a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or higher over the course of their academic career. The USCAA honors 10 First Team, 10 Second Team, and several Honorable Mention student-athletes for their outstanding performance on the court.

For the first time in school history, the Western Brown Bronco football team will be hosting a home playoff game on Nov. 8 against Thurgood Marshall, out of Dayton. The Broncos received their home field advantage in the Division III Region 10 playoffs after beating the Norwood Indians 48-14 on Nov. 1. The win gave the Broncos an undefeated 10-0 regular season and clinched the Southern Buckeye Athletic Conference league championship for them. “It was the seniors’ goal and to come out [and] win a conference title and go 10-0, their goals have been accomplished but we’ve got so many more to go within this program,” Western Brown Head Coach Evan Dreyer said. “We’re the Division III city poll champs, we’re 10-0, we have [done] a lot of great things in our program but its not over with. I’m proud but we can take it one step further.” Dreyer and his team join the only other team -- the 2008 Broncos, who were also 10-0 -- in school history to make it into the playoffs. The 1986 Bronco team was 10-0 too but they didn’t make it to the playoffs. “This isn’t just about us but the whole community,” Dreyer said. Heading into the Nov. 8 game, the fourth seed Broncos have a big challenge in front of them. The fifth seed Cougars won their last two regular season games 49-0 and 63-0, so the boys in
brown will have their work cut out for them. “We’re going to go out and play to the best of our ability. They have flaws like anyone else so it’s going to be an interesting game,” Western Brown senior quarterback Devyn Wood said. The Cougars have a 63 record during the regular season, but they did win their division. There are also a few Thurgood players who have committed to Division I universities. “We’ve got to play 48 minutes of Western Brown football, fast and furious, and we’re going to lay it all on the line,” Dreyer said. “They put on the pads the same way we do, and we’ll go after it. They [Thurgood] were in the playoffs last year and advanced, but every Friday night is different in Ohio. Hopefully, we play a great football game.” Though Marshall has a few players with Division I offers and scholarships, according to Dreyer, but that “doesn’t mean they’re a better team.” “Its hard to say how we will do,” Western Brown senior linebacker Derrick McIntosh said. “I know we are going to prepare for every possible situation. But we’re going to go out and put it all on the line.” To stay competitive, Dreyer would like to see his offense not make any turnovers. Wood threw two interceptions against Norwood on Nov. 1. “If we have turnovers we’ll be hanging our stuff up Monday. We’ve got this chance, and we’re going to see how good of a team we are,”
Dreyer said. “We’re a blue collar community, a blue collar team, and we’re going to see how good we actually are.” The Broncos are also hoping to win their first playoff game in program history as well. “We’re shooting for that and that’s exciting for this team to say they are some of the school’s elite, but to get to week 12 will be something special,” Dreyer said. While there is more pressure on this game, Dreyer is handling preparation the same way he did during the middle of the season. “Its a special week. Some teams are putting away their pads for the year and we get another week to work and improve our program so it is special,” Dreyer said. “You can’t take that away from these seniors.” Dreyer continued, “As a head coach I’m proud of what they’ve done so far, but I want something more for these kids. We have a chance, so we’re going to see how good of a team we are.” The game will be at Western Brown High School on Nov. 8, with kickoff at 7:30 p.m. “If we stay together as a team, depend on each other and play like we know we can, we’ll be fine,” Wood said. The game will be at Western Brown High School on Nov. 8, with kickoff at 7:30 p.m. and according to Dreyer, fans in attendance will see the “most energized football program in the city of Cincinnati.”

On Tuesday, November 19, 2013 the Pregnancy Resource Center A Place of Hope will be holding a “Safe to Sleep” class, (formally known as Back to Sleep) at 6:30 p.m. We are hoping that having this class will make more parents aware of the dangers of “Sudden Infant Death Syndrome” also known as (SIDS) and why it is so important for babies to sleep on their back. Gloria Clark, who is a student at Chatfield College, as well as an intern with Brown County Help Me Grow, will be talking about the dangers of SIDS and how parents can help prevent this tragedy
from happening. For example: make sure baby sleeps on a firm crib mattress and also not to have anything in the crib while the baby sleeps; such as: pillows, blankets or crib bumpers. After hearing from a representative from Brown County Help Me Grow that the number in SIDS is raising, we feel it is urgent that this class to take place. Those who attend the Safe to Sleep class will be given a $20 voucher to spend in the PRC’s Baby Boutique. Items in the Baby Boutique consist of: quilts, afghans, photo albums, baby clothes, baby accessories,
decorations, and much more. Anyone who is interested in attending the Safe to Sleep class may call (937) 3786853 to register, or stop by the PRC so your spot can be reserved. The PRC is located at 852 Mt. Orab Pike in Georgetown, Ohio. It is open on Mondays and Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesdays from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Wednesdays from 2 to 6 p.m. Clients may call for an appointment (937) 378-6853 during regular office hours. Walk-ins are also welcome, but those with an appointment take priority.

This program is composed by Sister Cecilia Huber, who is accompanied by musicians and singers Martha Wetzel, Sue Toth, Jack McKee and Bob Bridges, as well the help of the children of St. Angela Merici Parish. The performance will be narrated
by Mike Halloran, pastor of Holy Name and St. Columbkille Parishes. A punch and cookie reception will be held in the Mongan Building immediately following the concert.

“What should I do to prepare my strawberries for winter?” was the question asked at a garden seminar last week. I opened the question up to the group and asked for their opinion. (When I was teaching Fifth Grade Social Studies and employed that technique the students knew they had stumped their first year teacher!) It has been 25 years since I had worked in a strawberry patch, so I knew that I would have to do some research before I could give any advice. I honestly don’t remember ever mulching the patch for the winter, but several gardeners at the seminar always mulch their strawberries to protect them. The OSUE Fact Sheet (HYG1424-98), Strawberries are an Excellent Fruit for the Home Garden, provides gardeners with information about cultivar selection, planting site requirements, runner management, and suggests that mulching is necessary to provide winter protection for strawberry plants. Apply straw that is free of weed seeds two to three inches deep over the plants after they have been subjected to several sharp freezes in the low 30s or high 20s in fall. This is generally between November 15 and 30, but no later than December 15. Cold winter temperatures and repeated freezing and thawing of the soil through the winter months can actually cause unmulched plants to heave out of the ground. “The older needles on my pine tree are turning yellow and dropping off the tree. Does this mean my tree is dying?” is a question frequently asked this time of year. The symptoms that gardeners are observing are normal for this time of year. Pines and arborvitaes normally shed their oldest needles in the fall. White pines usually retain their needles for one to two years. The older needles, those towards the center of the tree, turn yellow before dropping. Older arborvitae leaves turn a reddish brown. Natural needle discoloration may be more noticeable on trees that have experienced root stress due to less than optimal growing conditions. Extended dry periods during the
summer months, as well as sites with poorly drained, heavy clay soils may accentuate root stress to pines. Since the newest growth (this year’s needles) are still green and healthy in appearance, you can be assured that this yellowing phenomenon is a natural one. I fired up the wood stove this week and potted up some catnip for Miss Kitty. The hoses have been drained and stored, but the tomato cages are still up in the garden. That task is at the top of this week’s “to do” list. Next week we will consider November’s tasks for our gardens. October certainly flew by this year! Gardening Tasks for November Turning the clocks back an hour in the fall always makes me happy in the morning, but very sad in the afternoon when it becomes dark so much earlier! We worked on moving and shredding leaves this past weekend. The tomato cages are finally stored in the shed and the garden has been covered with leaves. My husband is positive that this is the last time he will mow the lawn in 2013! Me? I’m not so sure, since the weather forecasters are predicting temperatures in the upper 70’s! The storms last week brought down some big branches and actually blew my garden gate open! I quickly wired it shut so the rabbits couldn’t find my lettuce. A good friend shared some of his turnips with me and we have enjoyed adding them to salads. My mother used to sneak some turnips into the boiled potatoes and couldn’t understand why we all complained. Cooked turnips have never made it to my list of “favorites”. It’s time to check off the “to do list” for November
that includes: 1. The Whole Garden: • Clean, oil and sharpen your garden tools • Prepare the lawn mower for winter • Test your soil • Before the ground freezes hard, install Bluebird nesting boxes • Feed lawn before winter 2. Trees and Shrubs: • Make sure all leaves are off your lawns before heavy snows begin • Remove broken or diseased branches 3. Flowers and Grasses: • Keep planting daffodil bulbs until the ground freezes • Finish cutting back perennials • Mulch perennial beds 4. Fruits and Vegetables: • Continue harvesting kale and collards until snow is on the ground • Harvest greens in your cold frame • Finish putting the garden to bed Mark your calendars for the November 21 gardening seminar at the Fincastle campus of Southern State Community College. This seminar will focus on choosing house plants and containers to fit your environment, general care and common problems. All seminars are free and open to the public and are held in the library from 6 - 7:30 p.m. Don’t forget to email your gardening questions to Brown County Master Gardener Volunteer, Mike Hannah, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Last year I complained that there weren’t any hedge apples on my trees. What was I thinking? This year the end of our drive is covered! I should wait for the rest to fall before I start picking them up. If I work on them tomorrow I will have to find my hard hat!

Southwest Regional Medical Center believes that healing and recuperation are influenced by the sometimes competing factors of rest and social interaction/support. Since the need for these two factors varies greatly by patient, it is the nurse and the physician that need to be sensitive to the needs of the patient and to structure visitation on a case by case basis. Therefore, guidelines will be provided, but ultimately it is at the nurse and/or physician's discretion to determine when vis-
itation needs to be more limited or more liberal than the guidelines. Southwest Regional Medical Center also believes that providing for the safety and security of all patients, visitors and staff within the walls of our facilities, as well as on the grounds, requires increasing vigilant attention and action by all health care staff and providers. Visitors after hours will be screened and limited for patient and employee safety. Visiting hours are from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. After 8 p.m.
all visitors must register with the Emergency Room Registration. All visitors after hours will sign in and out on a Visitor Log and wear a visitor pass badge. This pass is only good for the date on the pass. The visitor pass must include Visitor name, date, and room number. Visitors may be restricted during specific times of the year (i.e., flu season). For further information please contact Southwest Regional Medical Center (937) 378-7500
