The unemployment rate in Brown County rose slightly in February to 15.1 percent. That’s .2 percent higher than the 14.9 percent figure in January. While those numbers are still at nearly 20 year highs, new numbers from the Department of Job and Family Services show signs of improvement in the region and throughout the state. Every county bordering Brown County saw a drop in the February unemployment rate as compared to January. The biggest improvement was in Highland County, where

She said she’s noticed some improvement in the local economy as well. “We’re seeing more jobs advertised. The trickle is slow, but at least it’s moving in the right direction”, Plymail said. She added that the positive trend can be helpful once people begin to notice. “Once positive things start to happen, things improve even more because people become more willing to hire.” Linda May is one of those hoping things turn around soon. The 50 year old said she has been mostly unemployed for almost three years now. “I worked at a factory for thirty years before I lost my job, CONTINUED ON PAGE 10

In an effort to expedite the imminent 45-day closure of the on-ramp to state Route 32 West, contractors for the Ohio Department of Transportation – District 9 closed the westbound 32 onramp almost a week early. The original 21 mile detour to get to 32 from Highway 68 has also been considerably shortened. Traffic will now be detoured locally over County Road 89 (Bardwell West Road) and County Road 87 (Bodman Road) rather than the original planned detour via the state and federal highway system, which is customary for all state administered projects. “We also appreciate the consideration of the Brown County Engineer, Todd Cluxton, and the Commissioners, who have consented to the local detour,” said ODOT District 9 Deputy Director James A. Brushart. According to Brushart, ODOT officials have been working with their contractors to accelerate the first phase of construction for a four-lane resurfacing and rehabilitation project on state Route 32 in Brown

County Commissioners work to approve permenant 2010 budget BY Wayne Gates The Brown County Press The Brown County Commissioners worked right up to the April 1 deadline to approve a permanent county budget for 2010. Commission President Margery Paeltz said the budget was “carefully examined” to make sure that county funds were being spent as efficiently as possible. “Things are still very tough,

very tight (financially)”, Paeltz said. “We plan to work with the other elected officials to get through the year in as good a financial position as possible.” A completed copy of the final budget was not available at press time, but Paeltz said it would be available for public inspection on Monday. Paeltz said that revenues and expenses were close to the projections of the temporary budget passed last December, and no sig-

nificant changes were necessary. “We’re very thankful that collections were about as expected”, Paeltz said. Paeltz added that she expected the county budget to be even tighter in 2011. “If tax revenues drop next year at the same rate they did this year, we’re going to have a difficult time”, she said. A detailed look at the budget will be featured in the April 11 edition of the Brown County Press.

G’town opts to seek contract Prosecutor says Judge didn’t violate law with contempt threat with new seller of electricity BY Wayne Boblitt The Brown County Press BY Wayne Gates The Brown County Press Brown County Prosecutor Jessica Little says she’s being asked by citizens why she’s not prosecuting Common Please Court Judge Scott Gusweiler. Little said she’s not filing charges because she does not believe Gusweiler is guilty of a criminal offense. Concerning the case, Little said “I’m not on anyone’s side

here. I’m on the side of the law.” Gusweiler is being sued by Clerk of Courts Tina Meranda for “abusive, overbearing and inappropriate behavior” after he issued her a court order last February demanding keys to her office.

The village of Georgetown has decided to seek a contract with a new provider of electrical service, and as a result, electric rates are not going to rise in the village at least presently. Trash collection and water rates will rise, however, this spring in the village following action by Georgetown Village Council members at their regular meeting March 25. Council members that night

went into executive session to discuss three proposals for supplying electricity to Georgetown when Duke Energy’s current contract expires on Saturday, Dec. 31, 2011.

Clinton County improved from 19.5 percent in January to 19.0 in February. The rates for Adams and Clermont counties dropped by .1 percent each to 17.7 and 11.7 percent respectively. In all 57 Ohio counties saw a slight dip in their unemployment rate from January to February and ten more stayed the same.

Police chief reports animal complaints up in Georgetown Village administrator aims to tackle reported dog feces problem at park BY Wayne Boblitt The Brown County Press Animal complaints, including noise and feces problems, are up in Georgetown, according to Georgetown Police Chief Forrest “Buddy” Coburn. Coburn reported that news to Georgetown Village Council members at their regular meeting March 25. “I would like to remind pet owners that we all have the legal responsibility to control our animals,” Coburn commented to the council. He urged pet owners to keep their animals’ noises at an acceptable level, noting how some Georgetown residents would be opening their homes’ windows a little more with the coming of spring and warmer weather. “A loud animal can be most annoying when you are trying to sleep or just relax in general,” the chief said. Dog Waste Problem Discussed Coburn also stressed how the village had ordinances which deal with the odor created by pet animals’ waste and added that odor becomes more offensive the warmer the weather becomes. “If you walk your dog or it is out of your yard, there is a law requiring it to be on a leash,” the chief mentioned. “If your dog deposits feces on village

property or the property of others without their permission, you are required by law to pick it up and dispose of it properly.” Coburn said the only exceptions to the feces pickup and disposal mandates are dogs who a Georgetown K-9 or other law enforcement department canine and are performing their duties as police dogs and also Seeing Eye dogs who are guiding legally blind individuals. He also mentioned copies of the ordinances pertaining to leashes and animal waste disposal are available from the Georgetown Police Department or the Georgetown Village Administration Office. Georgetown resident Charles Bradley mentioned at the meeting, before Coburn delivered his report about various police matters, how people walking dogs on the track in Georgetown’s Kathryn Hanlon Park allow their dogs to deposit feces right on the track. Village Administrator Kelly Jones said he would look into obtaining some signs informing park users to pick up their dogs’ droppings and some bags that would be provided to them at dispensing locations for that purpose. In an April 1 telephone interview, Georgetown Fiscal Officer Ginny Colwell reported the village had ordered some of

those bags to be used by dog owners who visit the park. Skate Park Update Given In another matter regarding the popular Kathryn Hanlon Park, the police chief said he had spoken with some of the youths who use the skate park there and reported most of them like the idea of Georgetown police having extra patrols out there. Coburn reported while “most kids out there are decent kids”, he added “there are a few who think we are infringing on their rights to do what ever they want, and they are correct, and we will continue to do so.” The chief had reported at the council’s March 11 meeting some parents had informed him there seemed to be an increase in drug usage at the skate park. He told council members at that time how Georgetown police had received that same complaint the previous year and made several arrests and citations for possession of drugs and drug paraphernalia. “I will increase our efforts there again and will probably use some off duty officers to work plains clothes details there,” Coburn told council members at that meeting. “We will continue to utilize our surveillance equipment also.” Coburn also had reported while he didn’t have the budget to station an officer at the skate park, those committing drug offenses usually quit undertaking their illegal activities anyway when they see a uniformed officer or cruiser.

tices, and oversaw the adoption of the city’s $1.3 billion dollar annual budget. He carried this expertise into the office of Ohio State Treasurer. Boyce served as Executive Director of KnowledgeWorks Ohio – a non-profit organization created with the mission of improving Ohio’s school systems through public development and advocacy. During his tenure, Boyce was part of a team that invested over $100 million dollars in Ohio’s public school systems, implementing cutting edge education models. He served as Chief of Staff for the Ohio House of Representatives’ Democratic Caucus under Minority Leader Jack Ford. Along with Boyce, candidates for state and local offices, or their representatives, will be in attendance.

Musicians ‘trade’ voices for instruments Mt. Orab Elementary School third-graders perform “This Land Is Your Land” on recorders and Orff instruments during the second MOES Third-Graders’ Spring Concert “Proud To Be American” held March 30 in the MOES Cafeteria. Because of the large number of thirdgraders enrolled at that school, four classes presented that patriotic concert beginning about 6 p.m., and four other classes, including the students shown here, presented that concert beginning about 7:15 p.m. Brown County Auditor Doug Green of Mt. Orab was a guest performer during both concerts.

Georgetown Council approves 2010 Appropriation Ordinance This year’s budget up by more than $300,000 from 2009’s appropriations and new equipment for the skate park at Georgetown’s Kathryn Hanlon Park. Projects include ongoing wastewater treatment plant improvements and planned sidewalk repairs and construction of a crosswalk in an East State Street area. Jones said at the meeting the village’s Reserve Funds are in good shape and the village usually budgets more than it spends. Georgetown’s Fund Reserve Balance as of March 9 was $7,988,695, which is more than $300,000 higher than the amount of money the village budgeted in its 2010 Appropriation Ordinance. The village also reported its projected income this year from different sources is $6,768,942. The biggest appropriations in the 2010 Budget are $3,725,000 for the Electric Fund, $1,111,500 for the General Fund, $682,950 for the Water Fund and $681,899 for the Sewer Fund. Some Other Funds Also Large Other appropriations exceeding $100,000 include the Street Fund, $368,800; the Trash Fund, $252,370; the Fire Fund, $224,335; and the

BY Wayne Boblitt The Brown County Press At their regular meeting March 25, Georgetown Village Council members adopted the 2010 Annual Appropriation Ordinance for the village, which allocates nearly $7.7 million for expenditures this year. Before council members adopted the ordinance, they first voted to suspend the rules so the ordinance could be approved on its first reading rather than after three separate readings. 2010 Appropriations Higher The ordinance appropriates $7,665,741, nearly 4.2 percent more than the $7,357,877 in the 2009 Annual Appropriation Ordinance. With this year’s appropriations being higher than 2009’s, that reverses the situation with last year’s ordinance, which appropriated $13,212 less than the 2008 Annual Appropriation Ordinance did. Jones said the appropriations are higher this year than in 2010 because of some village purchases and planned projects. Purchases include three vehicles, one each for the Police, Street, and Water departments,

Income Tax Fund, $209,970. Additional appropriations include the Cemetery Fund, $86,125; Light Meter Deposit Fund, $72,000; Electric Improvement and Repair Fund, $60,000; Sewer Improvement and Repair Fund and Water Improvement and Repair Fund, $50,000 each; and 13 other funds of $21,000 or less each that total $90,792. Many line items found within funds exceeded $100,000 as follow: • Electric Fund: Electric/Cinergy, $2,600,000; Wages and Benefits, $552,000; Operation, Maintenance, and Contracts, $362,000; and Capital, $175,000. • General Fund: Wages and Benefits, $787,050; Operation, Maintenance, and Contracts, $169,450, and Capital, $147,500. • Water Fund: Operation, Maintenance, and Contracts, $402,000, and Wages and Benefits, $205,950. • Sewer Fund: Wages and Benefits, $320,150; Operation, Maintenance, and Contracts, $193,020; and Debt Service, $158,729. • Street Fund: Capital, $165,000, and Wages and Benefits, $161,800. • Trash Fund: Contracts, $220,000. • Income Tax Fund: Capital, $155,000.

Kindergarten and 7th grade students for the 2010-2011 school year. The changes in effect for the 2010-11 school year are: • The addition of a tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis (Tdap) or tetanus and diphtheria (Td) booster requirement for 7th grade. • The addition of a 2nd dose of varicella (chickenpox) vaccine for Kindergarten entry. • A requirement that the final dose of polio vaccine be administered on or after the 4th birthday for Kindergarten entry. “By requiring these additional vaccines, we hope to minimize the spread of preventable illnesses in schools and provide Ohio’s children with a healthier environment to learn,” said ODH Director Alvin D. Jackson, M.D. These new Ohio requirements more closely reflect recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and involved consultation of local health districts, medical providers, the state Medicaid program, and a school nurse. ODH wants parents of children entering the 7th grade to have their youngsters vaccinated with the Tdap vaccine to protect against pertussis (also known as whooping cough), a severe respiratory illness that causes violent, rapid coughing that can last for extended periods of time. Cases of pertussis, which mostly occur in school settings, nearly doubled in Ohio between 2008 (628 cases) and 2009 (1,096 cases). Like pertussis, varicella (known as chickenpox) is a vaccine-preventable disease that continues to sicken Ohio’s school-age children. A second dose of varicella vaccine provides a child with 99 percent protection against the disease. By requiring this dose before school entry, ODH believes there will be a significant reduction in outbreaks of the

disease in Ohio schools. Ohioans looking for more information about the new immunization requirements, vaccines or vaccine-preventa-

ble disease can learn more at www.odh.ohio.gov or contact the Ohio Department of Health Immunization Program at 1-800-282-0546

Brown praises house passage of health reform bill Following the U.S. House of Representatives’ historic passage of health reform legislation, Sen. Brown issued the following statement: "This is a historic moment for our country. The health reform bill headed to President Obama’s desk will reduce the deficit, ensure that more than 30 million uninsured Americans have access to affordable health coverage, and lower premiums for middle-class families and small businesses."

"Every American family should have access to a family doctor. This bill is the first of many steps we’ll take to ensure that middle-class families who work hard and play by the rules can still get ahead." Sen. Brown will attend the bill signing ceremony for this legislation, scheduled for tomorrow at the White House.

They missed that opportunity. “I would like to thank the thousands of my constituents who have made certain their voices were heard on this issue. I am heartened by the involvement of citizens in our efforts to defeat the Democrats health care bill.”

Ohio will not challenge health care law Lawsuits have no legal merit, Attorney General Cordray says Ohio will not join other state lawsuits filed to prevent implementation of H.R. 3590, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, Attorney General Richard Cordray announced today. "Based on my review of Ohio law and H.R. 3590, and my experience with federal constitutional law, I do not believe that the lawsuits filed against the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act have any legal merit whatsoever," Cordray said. "As a result, I believe it would be a waste of taxpayer resources for Ohio to join any such lawsuit, and we will not be doing so." Cordray said he drew upon his experience as an appellate lawyer and law professor to research the request and make his decision. "I had the good fortune to clerk for two United States Supreme Court

justices, Byron White and Anthony Kennedy. These justices – appointed by Presidents Kennedy and Reagan, respectively – each taught me to review constitutional challenges to federal laws with great care, always keeping in mind the proper balance of power between the states and Congress within our federalist system. In turn, I tried to convey this same respect for federalism to my students during 13 years of teaching constitutional law at The Ohio State University Moritz College of Law. I have also encountered such issues in some of the seven cases I have had the privilege of arguing to the United States Supreme Court." Cordray addressed the two constitutional claims raised in the lawsuits: Commerce Clause: "For 70

years, the U.S. Supreme Court has read the Commerce Clause broadly to authorize Congress to address our most pressing national economic concerns. In fact, during George Washington's first term as President, under the Second Militia Act of 1792, Congress explicitly required many Americans to make an economic purchase: of a gun, ammunition, gunpowder and a knapsack to be properly prepared for military service. In the health care law, the individual mandate is inextricably intertwined with the comprehensive economic approach that Congress adopted to fix the deep flaws in our current health insurance system, which affects one-sixth of the American economy." Tenth Amendment: "For those who contend that the states alone can address insurance problems, the logic of their position is that we are condemned, forever, to an unsatisfactory 'patchwork quilt' of conflicting provisions and mixed results. This is precisely why our Founding Fathers rejected the anemic Articles of Confederation as inadequate, authorized Congress to legislate on matters of interstate commerce, and then made its laws supreme, notwithstanding any state laws to the contrary. "Nobody can seriously argue that the health care industry operates only in 'intrastate' commerce, and the mandate provisions in this bill cannot be effectively disentangled from the comprehensive economic approach that Congress adopted to fix

the deep flaws in our current health insurance system. "Critics of the new law argue that the Tenth Amendment does not permit Congress to require states to establish insurance exchanges. But the law does not require that; it provides the states with a choice, and if they decline, the federal government will take on that responsibility. Just as Medicaid is a voluntary federal-state program whose constitutionality has been upheld by the courts, the health care reform law is entirely consistent with the Tenth Amendment. "In these difficult budget times, I do not believe in wasting taxpayer dollars to pursue political agendas through symbolic lawsuits, which only deplete our limited resources, as well as those of our courts.

Last month when the January unemployment numbers shot up for Brown County, I wrote in this space that things might not be as bad as they seem. I still think so. The February numbers are out and show a .2 percent increase in the county to 15.1 percent, up from 14.9. I know that’s not the best news in the world, but it’s better than the 2.2 percent increase we saw last month. Now to the good news. Highland County was tied for the most improved numbers in the state between January and February, showing a .7 percent improvement. Clinton County saw a .5 percent improvement. Yes, Highland and Clinton counties are still suffering, but the numbers are moving in the right direction. Clermont and Adams County had a .1 percent as did improvement, Hamilton County. Nearly two thirds of Ohio counties saw an improvement in their unemployment numbers. The state number held steady at 11.8 percent instead of rising again. Debora Plymail, the of Workforce Director Connections in Adams and Brown County, says she is seeing an uptick in the number of available jobs coming into her agency. She also says temporary services are starting to increase hiring rates again.

The Brown County Press - Sunday, April 4, 2010 - Page 5

First phase will connect middle school to village’s public library BY Wayne Boblitt The Brown County Press The village of Aberdeen and Ripley-Union-LewisSchool Huntington Middle received good news this past week regarding a proposed mile-long walking and bicycling trail in that village. Former Aberdeen Village Councilman J.R. Lawrence reported in an April 1 telephone interview he had learned the previous day the Ohio Department of Transportation was awarding the remaining $225,000 for that project. First Award Was $250,000 At a ceremony held April 23, 2009, in front of RULH Middle School in Aberdeen, representatives from Ohio Department of Transportation District 9 in Chillicothe had announced that village and school, as partners, would receive up to $250,000 to help construct the proposed trail. Aberdeen was one of only 13 Ohio communities in 2009 selected to receive $3.7 million in total federal transportation funds through ODOT to build multi-use paths, bike racks, and sidewalks near schools as well as improve lighting and signage near school zones, according to an ODOT press release in April 2009. The projects are part of ODOT’s Safe Routes To School program. The Aberdeen trail will be 8 feet wide with 2

feet-wide shoulders on each side, according to ODOT District 9 SRTS Coordinator Toby Smalley. Lawrence said the funds ODOT announced this past week it would award to Aberdeen and RULH Middle School are the remainder of the amount needed to eventually complete the entire project. He said the trail’s first phase may begin in mid-June after the state awards a bid to a contractor, and that portion of the trail will be constructed from the middle school to the Aberdeen Branch of the Union Township Public Library. The trail later will be extended to Elm Street in Aberdeen Mobile Home Park. Lawrence said he began working on the proposed trail as an Aberdeen village councilman because he thought it would be good for the village and added, “I didn’t give it up.” The trail will enable RULH Middle School students to walk to the Aberdeen Library and some students who live in Aberdeen near the path to walk or ride their bicycles to the middle school instead of taking the bus or being transported in private vehicles. With the absence of such a path, walking to and from the library and school is quite dangerous now because the students are closer to heavily-traveled U.S. 52-62-68. News Thrills Principal In an April 1 telephone inter-

view, RULH Middle School Principal Michael Kennedy said hopefully the first phase of the trail will be completed in August, the month when 201011 School Year classes begin for that school’s students. “We are thrilled, obviously,” Kennedy said of the news the remaining $225,000 have been been awarded for the project. “It’s been a long process.” He mentioned he likes the fact the trail will connect the school even more with the rest of Aberdeen. The awarded funds also will be used to construct some bike racks at the middle school and library and some crosswalks from the Shared Use Path, as the trail is called, to Rains-Eitel Road, the road that runs in front of the middle school. Lawrence praised the RULH Local School District at the ceremony held last April 23 for contributing money to help with some surveys undertaken in an effort to obtain the funding. He mentioned there had been 300 to 400 letters of support signed by people. In his interview this past Thursday, Lawrence thanked RULH Middle School Librarian Vicki Asbury for making up some survey forms that helped in his efforts to obtain funding and also thanked Kennedy’s and Smalley’s efforts with the project. Lawrence said he was thankful all the funds sought for the Shared Use Path had been awarded, adding, “It’s been a long hard road.”

A former atheist and Communist will be the featured speaker at the “Pure of Heart” Conference scheduled this Friday, April 9, at St. Patrick Catholic Church, 318 Limestone St., Maysville, Ky. Dr. Ari Ben-Tzvi was raised an atheist in a Jewish household and attended Columbia University in New York City during the peak of the social unrest of the early 1960s. Ben-Tzvi was a protest demonstrator during that time and also studied the works of Karl Marx, Friedrich Engels and Vladimir Lenin and became an active member of the Communist Party USA. As a former Communist, BenTzvi knows some of that movement’s leadership and its tactics. He is very aware of its efforts to destroy Christianity, marriages, and families and the dignity of human beings through veiled but well-planned and financed programs. As a means of atonement, the former atheist, the author of Savage Ingratitude, is now exposing that subculture of death. Those attending the “Pure of Heart” Conference will be shocked to learn how people are being manipulated into sinful lifestyles for monetary and political gain. Ben-Tzvi’s talk, “Perfidious Manipulation”, will be presented at 10 a.m. during the conference’s Student Schedule, 11 a.m. during its Adult Schedule, and 7:30 p.m. during the joint Adult-Student Schedule. The Student Schedule begins at 7:45 a.m. in the St. Patrick Parochial School Gymnasium with the final program to begin at 2:15 p.m. The Adult Schedule, for those 18 and older, and the joint AdultStudent Schedule will be held in the church. The Adult Schedule begins at 8 a.m. with the final pro-

Dr. Ari Ben-Tzvi

gram to begin at 2:20 p.m., and the joint Adult-Student Schedule will begin at 3 p.m. with the final activities scheduled to begin at 9 p.m. The cost for students to attend the Student Conference is $20 and includes lunch and dinner, but no one will be turned away for lack of money. There is no charge to attend the Adult Conference, but donations will be accepted. Adults attending the event may purchase lunches or dinners for $5 each. Anyone interested in a reservation may call (937) 378-4396 or (606) 782-3773. Seating is limited for students. Further information is available at the conference’s website, www.stpatspurity. com.

The world lost a wonderful man on 3/19/2010 at 0545. Jeff Conn was an amazing father, supportive and loving fiance’, and wonderful friend. He was a loved youth football coach for the Fayetteville Rockets as well as a terrific youth baseball coach for Lynchburg. Jeff was funny, fun loving, and could always put a smile on your face. He enjoyed all things outdoors. He loved hunting and fishing with his buddies, grilling out in the back yard with a group of close friends, and having bonfires. If you were his friend he would give you the shirt off his back if you needed it. Everyone who had the pleasure of knowing him and getting in his heart could see how beautiful, sweet, and caring of a soul he was. I will miss and love him for the rest of my life. I was lucky enough to get in his heart and stay there. I was truly blessed and honored to know him, love him, call him the love of my life, and to get all of that in return from him. He is now and will be forever in my heart and soul. I will never forget him or all of the amazing times we shared. I will love you forever and always Jeff Conn!!

Love, Maggie Young

Something To Think about TOM MEGIE DIRECTOR

CONSIDERING CREMATION Most of the customs and rituals that normally make up the funeral are not significantly altered if cremation is requested. There can still be a visitation and viewing of the deceased. A worship service or ceremony with the body present can be held. There can also be some form of committal services for the cremated remains. The body may still be accompanied by the family in procession to the crematory. There, usually in a chapel setting, the casket or other container is placed into a specially designed furnace called a retort. Operating at an extremely high temperature it reduces the body to a few pounds of bone fragments and ashes. Most of the cremated remains are then placed in an urn or canister and carefully identified. Your funeral director or the crematory will have a variety of urns from

which the family can make a selection. The family then has the choice of installing the urn in a columbarium, burying the remains, or scattering them.

FOLLOW JESUS John 1:35-37: “Again the next day after John stood, and two of his disciples; And looking upon Jesus as he walked, he saith, Behold the Lamb of God! And the two disciples heard him speak, and they followed Jesus.” To this day I am still trying to follow after and walk in the footsteps of Jesus. What an opportunity these disciples had! I would love to have seen Jesus as he walked; wouldn’t you? I remember a time when my eldest son, who is now a grandfather, was just a small boy. We lived in a home which was on about 11⁄2 acres in Michigan. It was a fairly long lot about 400 feet in length and it was covered in snow. For some reason that morning I had decided to take a walk to the back of the property. It was very beautiful, peaceful, and quiet and as I walked I thought I heard a small noise behind me. I turned and saw my son, still some distance away, trying his best to put his feet in the exact prints of mine. Now I am tall and have long legs so it was fairly difficult for him to do. He was concentrating so hard on performing this task that he did not notice that I had turned and was watching him. He was trying so very hard to stay in my footprints without faltering. I can remember it as if it were yesterday looking back and seeing that boy walking in my footsteps. At that time the thought struck me that I had better be careful where I place my feet. Someone is following and putting their feet where I had had mine. There is a children’s song that states: be careful little feet where you go. My greatest desire is to put my feet right where Jesus put His. I want to follow in His footsteps without faltering. As these disciples were watching Jesus walk John the Baptist said: “Behold the Lamb of God!” He did not say to look at the Lamb of God. He said: “Behold the Lamb of God”. This word “behold” encompasses a lot more than the word “look”. A look can be a casual observance, a glance. To behold means to really take it in, study it, comprehend it. John was telling these men to comprehend, to understand that this is the Lamb of God! And these men did. They really absorbed what they were seeing in the person of the Lord Jesus Christ as He walked. These two men had been disciples of John but when John

DR. CHARLES SMITH MT. ORAB BIBLE BAPTIST CHURCH www.bbcmtorab.com said: “Behold the Lamb of God” they followed Jesus. A long time ago I made up my mind to get saved; but not only that, I made up my mind to follow Jesus. Some people get saved and never do anything else. They never get baptized; they never serve; and they never follow. Verse 38 tells us: “Then Jesus turned, and saw them following...” You see, if you start following Jesus He will see you following and He will recognize you. He saw those two disciples and He said unto them: “What seek ye?” He asked: What are you looking for? And I might present the same question to you today. What are you looking for in Christ? What are you seeking? Do you think Christ is only for old people? These disciples were young! John the Baptist was just a few months older than Jesus and Jesus was only 30 at the time of His baptism. When Jesus asked the other two what they were looking for, they said: Master, where do you live? You know, we could call Jesus: Master, Owner, and Saviour. We could call Him: Adonai, Husband, King, or Prince of Peace. This is Jesus that we are talking about; this is the Lamb of God! They asked: where do you live? He said: “Come and see.” Just follow His footsteps and come and see. Don’t back up; don’t give up; don’t turn around; don’t go to the right or to the left; just keep on coming; keep on following Jesus! One of the two young men which followed Jesus was Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother. And the first thing Andrew did after spending just a short time with Jesus was to find his brother Peter. Will you come and spend some time with Jesus? Will you follow in His footsteps? Will you tell someone else about Him? He is watching and waiting for you.

One activity showed how to decrease friction by rubbing their hands together and then putting lotion on them. They also completed a measuring distance activity where they took various objects, blew on them, and measured the distance they traveled. In addition they found an awesome interactive website that could be viewed on the Smartboard to observe how changing a surface could effect the amount of friction that an object experienced and how

and handles five to seven hundred phone calls. She said the time between jobs can vary, depending on the individual and that Workforce Connections is only “one tool in their job hunting toolbox”. “We tell people that looking for a job should be their fulltime job. The results they get are directly related to the amount of effort they put in”, Plymail said. To help in that effort, Workforce Connections offers help in preparing resumes, tutorials on interviewing and other job seeking skills and internet access.

Some basic training in computer skills is also offered, something May said is important to job seekers. “Everything’s about computers these days. When I was in school, they didn’t teach you computers until you went to college. Today it’s what, in Kindergarten?” Workforce Connections of Adams and Brown County is located at 406 West Plum Street in Georgetown. The office is open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. each weekday except Tuesday when the office opens at 9 a.m. Their telephone number is 800-553-7393, ext. 261.

Prosecutor says Judge didn’t violate law with contempt threat CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 public officials from using the power of their office to intimidate others...but Little said that, in her opinion, the Judge did not break the law. According to the complaint filed by Meranda, Gusweiler violated Ohio revised Code 2921.03, which covers criminal intimidation. The complaint continues by claiming that Gusweiler is “civilly liable” to Meranda. Little was a witness to the confrontation between Meranda and Gusweiler. confirms that Little Gusweiler threatened Meranda with arrest, but said he did so in a lawful way. “Ohio Revised Code gives a Judge power to punish someone in their presence”, Little said.

In fact, Ohio Revised Code 2705.01 says “A court, or judge at chambers, may summarily punish a person guilty of misbehavior in the presence of or so near the court or judge as to obstruct the administration of justice.” The word “summarily” is important, because it is defined as “immediately” or “without notice”. According to Meranda’s complaint, Gusweiler had given Meranda a court order demanding the keys and threatened her with arrest if she did not produce them. If she had not done so, the legal argument could be made that she was not complying with the Judge’s court order and was therefore ‘obstructing the administration of justice” and could be found in contempt of

Brown-32 construction underway, detour changed CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 County. “As part of the construction plans, a full closure of the onramp to Route 32 was deemed necessary given the geometrics of the merge lane to the highway's mainline and the nature of work to be completed,” said Brushart. “While we must close the ramp for the safety of both motorists and work crews during this phase of construction, we realize the impact this closure will have on the traveling public. Therefore, working with our contractors and officials from the village of Mt. Orab, the Brown County Commissioners and the Brown County Engineer’s Office, we have made a concerted effort to accelerate this project, and we appreciate the cooperation of everyone involved.” Site preparations got under way last week when contractors erected signs, placed barrels and mobilized crews for the 5.8-mile resurfacing project between the Clermont County line and the U.S. Route 68 overpass. “We also appreciate the consideration of the Brown County Engineer, Todd Cluxton, and the Commissioners, who have consented to the local detour,” added Brushart. The John R. Jurgensen Company, of Cincinnati, Ohio, was awarded a contract for

approximately $4.09 million to resurface the route, and throughout construction traffic will be maintained on S.R. 32 in at least one lane in each direction. Currently, mainline S.R. 32 traffic is restricted only at the U.S. 68 overpass at Mt. Orab, and traffic on the other S.R. 32 on/off ramps will not be restricted during the first phase of construction.

Free testing available for HIV and Hepatitis C The Brown County Health Department offers free HIV and Hepatitis C testing. These screenings are by appointment only. You must call (937) 3786892 or toll free (866) 867-6892 to schedule an appointment with one of the nurses. The HIV test consists of an oral swab, and the Hepatitis C test consists of a blood draw.

court. Additionally, Ohio Revised Code 2705.02 says that a person guilty of “disobedience of, or resistance to a lawful order of a court or officer” is guilty of contempt. Once given the court order, a legal avenue appealing the court order to the Ohio 12th Circuit Court of Appeals was open to Meranda. Concerning the lawsuit, Little said she has not been asked to assist Gusweiler to find an attorney as of yet. As a defendant, Gusweiler is eligible to have an attorney paid for at county expense. The Clerk of Courts office confirmed at press time that Gusweiler did not yet have an attorney of record in the case. Gusweiler is continuing a policy of withholding comment on the matter.

While electric rates not going up for now, trash and water rates are CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 DP&L for a contract whereby that company will sell electricity to Georgetown, who in turn will sell it to customers in the village. Councilman Steve Triplett abstained in the voting because his wife is a DP&L employee. Prior to that meeting, council members had offered the first two readings of an ordinance to raise rates to Georgetown electric customers by about 17.5 percent. Following the DP&L vote, council members voted not to offer the ordinance’s third reading, effectively killing the proposal. That’s because the rates offered in the anticipated contract from DP&L were not known yet and the rates in the proposed hike ordinance were based on the village’s current carrier Duke Energy. Trash Rates Rising In April In other news from that meeting, council members voted to approve trash collection rate increases, which will begin in April, from Colerain Townshipbased Rumpke Consolidated Companies and subsequent rates the village will charge its residents who are served by Rumpke. Rumpke is raising the rates it charges Georgetown from $8.01 to $8.59 for residential pickup (not including senior citizens) and from $7.09 to $7.59 for pickup at senior citizens’

homes. While that amounts to a 7 percent increase, the increase above its own rate increase the village will pass on to village customers will be 8 percent. Jones mentioned how the state of Ohio imposed a trash collection surcharge last year, which the village “ate” and didn’t pass on to customers, so this year the village is doing so with a higher percentage rate than the percentage rate Rumpke is charging Georgetown. The monthly residential rate for non-senior citizens will rise from $9.47 to $10.23 and for senior citizens from $8.31 to $8.98. Council members also approved water rate increases Pleasant Township-based Brown County Rural Water Association will charge Georgetown and Georgetown in turn will supply customers it serves. BCRWA will increase its rates to Georgetown from $1.73 to $1.91 per 1,000 gallons, a 10.5 percent hike, beginning in May. The village then will increase customers’ minimum monthly bills from $12.65 to about $13.98, also a 10.5 percent increase. Georgetown Mayor Dale Cahall mentioned the village receives new BCRWA contracts to consider every 42 months. Council members authorized Village Solicitor Jay Cutrell to draw up ordinances to enact those rate increases and bring

Dwight Marriott receives Masonic 70 year membership pin Union Masonic Lodge No. 71 in Ripley paid tribute to one of its longtime members at a special awards night on Feb. 25 at the Ripley Memorial Masonic Temple. Dwight Marriott was honored for 70 years of membership. Mr. Marriott received a gold pin and a certificate which was presented to him by Norman Mick, Grand Orator, representing the Grand Lodge of Ohio. District Deputy Grand Master Eddie Bailey presided over the public presentation with 48 guests and visiting brethren. Mr. Marriott commented on the relevance of Freemasonry and the founding fathers of this

country. "If it was good enough for them, it is good enough for me." Charity is an important tenet of the Masonic fraternity. The 114,000 Masons in Ohio provide approximately $15 million in charitable giving annually. The highlight of the evening was the pin presentation by Mr. Marriott's friends, Myron and Anita Flaugher, and Paula and Lexie Gray. Cake and ice cream were served in the fellowship hall afterwards. The evening was a fine example of Grand Master Terry W. Posey's theme this year, "Freemasonry: All in the Family". General information is available at www.freemason.com. For local information, con-

them back at a future meeting for the council’s consideration. Administrator To Get Raise Also at the March 25 meeting: • Council members toward the end of the meeting voted to raise Jones’ salary by $5,000 this year. “We greatly appreciate the service you do,” Council President Drew Watson informed the administrator. • The council authorized the village to pay one month’s dental premiums for village employees as the “start up” payments for another cycle of dental insurance service being provided to employees. Village employees pay their own dental premiums, and Jones mentioned the village will be reimbursed eventually for its dental premium payment action. • Watson reported on behalf of Georgetown Fire Chief Joe Rockey the Georgetown Fire Department was going to have a “grill out”-type Open House at 6 p.m. Saturday, April 10, to which all council members are invited to attend. • Triplett asked in light of the upcoming Annual U.S. Grant Days Celebration in late April in Georgetown if the village could do anything to make the downtown area around Cherry and Apple streets more attractive. He mentioned there was old roofing on the sidewalk and some trash in the vicinity of the building that formerly housed Homer’s Pizza. Jones said he would look into that matter.

One Stop Specialist Denise Fite spends her days helping people like May. She said she’s also seeing some signs that things could be turning around soon. “We’ve had some good luck with people here and there.

G’town opts to seek contract with new seller of electricity

Applications are currently being accepted from rural residents to repair their homes in rural Ohio. Loan and grant funds have been received and are now available. According to Linda AyresLouiso, Underwriter of USDA Rural Development in Hillsboro, qualified very lowincome rural residents can obtain home repair loans of up to $20,000. The loans can be used to modernize the home or to remove health or safety hazards. The interest rate is 1 percent with terms up to 20 years. Loans cannot be approved to make repairs to homes in such poor condition that it will continue to be a health or safety hazard even after the repairs. “The loans are intended to help those people who lack the personal resources to make the repairs themselves and cannot find assistance from other

sources,” said Ayres-Louiso. “Many of our applicants are elderly, and especially during winter, we want to make sure the public knows we are here to help them.” Grant funds can be used by rural residents who are at least 62 years old and cannot show repayment for a repair loan. These funds are limited and can only be used to remove safety or health hazards. In all cases, the applicant must meet requirements of the program, including income limits, which vary according to family size and county of residence. Homes must be located in eligible rural areas. Other permissible purposes of the loans include installation or repair of sanitary water and waste disposal units, insulation, storm doors and windows, replacement of siding, and accessibility repairs for the disabled.

Eastern Warriors win opener over Western Pike By Ritchie Butler The Brown County Press

B R O A D S H E E T

The Brown County Press/RITCHIE BUTLER

Eastern’s Brett Carrington blasted this pitch over the center field wall during the Warriors’ win over Western Pike.

The Eastern Warriors won the 2010 season opener in a big way, downing the Western Pike Indians by a score of 220. "We hit the ball well," said first-year Eastern coach Dave Mignery. "Especially for early in the year. The pitching was good and they were around the plate. Our defense was okay tonight and I think we'll play good defense this year." The Warriors scored early and often on their way to the non-league win. Eastern plated four runs in the first, five runs in the second, 12 runs in the third and added one run in the fourth. Cody Kelch paced the offense with three hits. He scored three times and drove in two. Derek Souder, Daniel Faul, Kenny Ostrander and Daniel Kiefer had two hits each. Ostrander drove home three runs and Kiefer had four RBIs. Brandon Carrington, Brett Carrington, Brandon Koewler and Andrew Meeker

each added one hit. Brett Carrington's one hit was a two-run blast over the center field fence. "Brett hit that ball well," said Mignery. "Kiefer and Kelch both did a nice job at the plate as well." Faul picked up the win on the mound. He worked three innings, allowing no runs and no hits. Faul walked one and struck out five. Koewler tossed two innings of shutout relief. He allowed one hit, walked one, hit a batter and struck out five. "Our pitchers did a good job," added Mignery. "Brandon got a little tired at the end. They did a nice job for the first night out."

Southern State Lady Patriots now 6-0

Johnson, Tatman combine for no-hitter By Ritchie Butler The Brown County Press

The Brown County Press/RITCHIE BUTLER

Above, Eastern’s Maria Johnson throws a pitch during one of her three no-hit innings. Below, Emily Tatman peers in for the sign during one of her four no-hit innings in the Lady Warriors’ win over Western Pike.

The Eastern Lady Warriors won their season opener on Tuesday, downing the Western Lady Indians by a score of 6-0 behind the combined no-hitter from Maria Johnson and Emily Tatman. "Our pitching was good for opening day," said Eastern coach Eric Purdy. "They worked around the plate and threw some nice off-speed stuff." never really Western mounted a threat offensively, getting only two runners on base once in the game. Johnson got the win in three innings of work. She allowed no runs and no hits. Johnson walked two and fanned eight. Tatman pitched four innings of shutout softball. She also allowed no hits, walked three and struck out five. After a scoreless first inning, Eastern got on the board in the second. Katy Mullins tripled and later scored on a fielder's choice off the bat of Arica Bollman. Megan Staggs drove in Taylor Reynolds with a fielder's choice. Johnson, who walked after Mullins' triple, also scored on an error in the inning. At the end of two, Eastern held a 3-0 lead. In the bottom of the fourth, the Lady Warriors added one run to their lead. Johnson tripled and scored on Reynolds' RBI-single. In the fifth, Eastern added another solo run. Shelby Mullins singled and moved to third on a series of wild pitches. Shelby scored on a sacrifice fly off the bat of Katy Mullins, giving the Lady Warriors a 5-0 lead. In the home-half of the sixth, Eastern added an insurance run when Bollman walked and scored after two wild pitches and an error. "Our hitting wasn't where it needs to be," said Purdy. "We need to make better contact and we were a little timid on the bases." Courtney Wiford was the only Lady Warrior with multiple hits on the night. "Wiford is an up-and-coming sophomore," said Purdy. "Katy also made some good contact. We are only about 75 percent of where we need to be. We have good depth at pitcher and good speed on the bases."

By Ritchie Butler The Brown County Press The Southern State Lady Patriots stayed unbeaten on the season, sweeping two home doubleheaders last weekend. On Friday, the Lady Patriots played host to UC-Clermont and claimed two OCAC victories. "It was cold on Friday," said SSCC coach Katie Moberly. "We had to get ice off the tarp before we could remove it from the field. But Devan (Bernard) and Shelby (Kelley) pitched well in the cold." The Lady Patriots won the first game versus UC-Clermont by a score of 7-2. Kelley (Western Brown) picked up the win on the mound. She worked seven innings, allowing two runs, both unearned, on four hits. Kelley walked one and fanned 10. Gabby Holden (Fairfield) led the offense with four hits, including one double. Kelley added three hits with a double and one RBI. Kristi Beasley (North Adams) had two hits. Jade Juska (Eastern Brown) and Ryan Morse (Eastern Brown) added one hit each. Jackie Siegel (Ripley) walked and scored a run for the Lady Patriots. In the second game, Southern State pulled away, winning 10-2 in five innings. Bernard (Fairfield) got the win. She went five innings, allowing two runs, one earned, on six hits. Bernard walked four and struck out seven. Morse was the leading hitter in game two, connecting for three hits with a double and one RBI. Siegel, Holden and Brittany Colwell (Little Miami) added two hits each. Kelley finished 1-for-3 with a double and two RBIs. Juska picked up an RBI with a sacrifice. "We did a nice job moving kids around today," said

Moberly. "You are not going to hit as well in the cold, so we did some situational things at the plate." On Saturday, Southern State hosted Miami-Middletown and scored 42 runs in the two-game sweep. In game one, the Lady Patriots took a five-inning win, 22-0. Kelley got the win on the hill. She worked three innings, allowing no runs and just one hit. Kelley walked one and struck out five. Katie Myers (Clinton-Massie) pitched two innings of scoreless relief. She allowed one hit, walked one and fanned four. "Myers pitched well for not seeing game action since last spring," said Moberly. Colwell was the leading hitter for SSCC in the game. She had four hits and four RBIs. Morse went 3-for-3 with a double and one RBI. Amber Frazer (Whiteoak) added two hits and three RBIs. Juska smashed a double and drove in two. In game two, the Lady

Fayetteville’s Tori Huber had one hit in the Lady Rockets’ loss to Williamsburg.

Once again, it’s time for softball. The Fayetteville Lady Rockets kicked off their season with a Mar. 29 game at Williamsburg High School to take on the Lady Wildcats. The April showers that came a few days early did not stop this game from being played. However, they did affect he field conditions, turning the infield into mud and the outfield into some kind of soup. Unfortunately for the visiting Lady Rockets, it would not be an ideal start to the year. After both teams finished adjusting to the rough conditions and shaking off the cobwebs, the Lady Wildcats were the only team to make something of it. The girls in green struggled greatly just to get a hit. Williamsburg kept crossing home plate, and run-ruled

Fayetteville by a score of 10-0 in the bottom of the sixth inning. “I’d say we really did a good job,” said first year Lady Rockets’ coach Tom Ryan, in spite of the outcome, “(We faced) a very good pitcher; one of the best in the SBC. All we had to do was hit the ball and we would have been in the game. We played good defense, but we have to work on our hitting though.” Ryan continued, “I think we’ll do alright in the SHL, we may not win it, but we’ll win some games this year.” Fayetteville sophomore Brianna Plapp provided half of the offense for the Lady Rockets, going two-for-two at the plate. Tori Huber added a hit, as did Delaney Davis. First-time pitcher Olivia Mullins went five-plus innings, striking out five.

Patriots' bats stayed hot as they cruised to a 20-2 win. Bernard got the win in three innings of work. She allowed one run, earned, on four hits. Bernard fanned five and hit two batters. Beasley pitched two innings in relief. She allowed one run, earned, on three hits. Beasley walked none and struck out three. Kelley and Holden led the offense with three hits each. Morse and Bernard added two hits each. Bre Johnson (Miami Trace) blasted a three-run homer for SSCC. Siegel drove in two runs and Juska scored one run. "Our bats were active on Saturday," said Moberly. "We combined for 17 strikeouts from our pitchers. Everybody got some good innings and we were able to get some looks at different people in different positions."
