One dead, one missing as two boys swept away The body of eight year old Blake Devercelly has been recovered from the banks of Bullskin Creek. It was found on banks of Bullskin Creek near Smiths Landing Road around 11 a.m. about a mile inside Clermont County. The body of his 11 year old brother Justin had not been recovered at press time. The boys were last seen

Wednesday afternoon heading to the creek to watch the water rise after a heavy rain. They were reported missing around 4 p.m. by their babysitter on Dunbar Road in Brown County. Brown County Chief Deputy John Schadle said the body of Blake was found about a mile and a half downstream of where the two presumably went into the water. Schadle said it was likely the body became snagged on branches near the bank and

became visible as the water receded. Brown County Sheriff Dwayne Wenninger said about 30 searchers were combing the area for the body of the second child. Schadle said the creek rose ten feet in just a couple of hours Wednesday after four inches of rain fell in that period of time in the area. Laura Penick has lived in the area for three years. She said the creek is wellCONTINUED ON PAGE 10

Real Estate Tax bills go out without due date...but still due BY Wayne Gates The Brown County Press There is a small problem with the second half Brown County real estate tax statements that were recently mailed out. County Treasurer Connie Patrick said the statements were mailed without a due date. That doesn’t mean that property owners can choose when to pay the taxes though. “The last day to pay the taxes without penalty is July 7 this year”, Patrick said. Patrick added that the missing due date was due to a printing error and that additional information was being prepared

Sarah Clemens listens to Common Pleas Judge Scott Gusweiler during her plea hearing. At left is her attorney, Aaron Moss.

Clemens pleads guilty, will testify in death penalty cases BY Wayne Gates The Brown County Press Sarah Clemens has made a deal with the Brown County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office. She pleaded guilty to one charge of obstructing justice on June 9 in the cases against capital murder suspects Joseph Hensley and Dallas Tincher. Hensley and Tincher are both facing the death penalty in

separate trials. The agreed upon settlement was for Clemens to serve six months of a two year sentence. Part of Clemens’ agreement with prosecutors is that she testify against the two men “as necessary” and repeat her testimony before a Brown County Grand Jury on June 17. If she does so to the satisfaction of the prosecutors office, that office will continue to rec-

ommend the negotiated sentence to Common Pleas Court Judge Scott Gusweiler. Gusweiler declined to sentence Clemens on June 9 and scheduled a pre-sentencing investigation. Clemens is scheduled to be sentenced July 6 after Gusweiler has had a chance to review the results of the presentencing investigation. CONTINUED ON PAGE 6

three years for GSI Brown County Court of Common Pleas Judge Scott T. Gusweiler sentenced Jonathan Cain, 23, to three years prison for Gross Sexual Imposition on June 1. A jury found Cain guilty on May 12. Following the verdict, Judge Gusweiler remanded Cain to the Brown County Adult Detention Center to await sentencing. The Probation Department completed a pre-sentence investigation prior to the

June 1 hearing. Judge Gusweiler sentenced Cain to a mandatory prison term of three years. Judge Gusweiler classified Cain as a Tier II Sex Offender. He will be required to register as a sex offender with the sheriff’s office. Judge Gusweiler further ordered five years post release control by the Adult Parole Authority upon Cain’s release from prison.

Appeals Court upholds ruling in Washington Twp. condo case BY Wayne Boblitt The Brown County Press The United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit upheld on June 4 another court's dismissal of a lawsuit against Washington Township by a property developer who had wanted to construct condominiums in that township. That other court, the United States District Court for the Southern District of Ohio at Cincinnati, had granted on April

7, 2009, Washington Township's motions for judgment in the pleadings and summary judgment. The District Court had dismissed all the claims of plaintiff White Oak Property Development, L.L.C., with prejudice, which means those claims cannot be brought forth before that court again, except for the plaintiff's state law claims alleging conspiracy and a violation of the Ohio Revised Code.

The District Court dismissed the state law claims without prejudice, meaning a new suit could be filed on those claims. The U.S. Court of Appeals, in a 19-page opinion filed June 4, upheld the District Court's action from more than a year ago. Background Of Case Given Dayton-based HBS Development Inc. is the parent company of White Oak Property Development, L.L.C., CONTINUED ON PAGE 6

Ripley electric customers are anticipated to save 20 percent on those utility bills beginning in January of 2011 following Ripley Village Council action on June 8. And Ripley residents and businesses who have not been using a garbage pickup and disposal service will be required to do so by early next month. Ripley Village Council members at their regular meeting this past Tuesday adopted electric rate and mandatory garbage pickup ordinances following third readings of each of those measures. Council members voted earlier this year to switch the village's electricity provider from Duke Energy to American Electric Power because AEP indicated its rates would be lower. The village's current con-

tract with Duke expires at the end of this year. Customers who pay for “regular” residential service shall pay $6.74 for the first 30 kilowatt-hours, $9.44 for 30 to 100 kWh and 10.36 cents per kWh for usage of more than 100 kWh. Customers who pay for “all electric” residential service shall pay $34.58 for the first 300 kWh and 8.8 cents per kWh for usage of more than 300 kWh. Commercial service customers shall pay $6.74 for the first 30 kWh, $83.49 for usage of 30 to 700 kWh and $9.38 per kWh for usage of more than 700 kWh. The garbage pickup ordinance will become effective 30 days after its passage (on or about Thursday, July 8). The ordinance states it had appeared some residences, businesses and commercial establishments in Ripley were not paying for pickup and disposal of garbage and other waste material. The measure also states it was necessary for the health and welfare of Ripley inhabitants that every residence, business and commercial establishment in the village dispose of garbage and other waste material in a legal manner.

The ordinance states all residences, businesses and commercial establishments in Ripley are to be billed for garbage pickup and disposal service provided by the village. Ripley is the only Brown County municipality that provides its own garbage pickup service. Some other municipalities in the county are served by such garbage collectors as Rumpke. The ordinance provides for Ripley residents, businesses, and commercial establishments to make written applications on furnished forms to seek exemptions from the village's mandatory garbage charge, and an exemption will be granted only in the event the application establishes the particular residence, business, or commercial establishment has a legal method of disposing of all such garbage and trash outside Ripley. The ordinance goes on to state any questions concerning the legality of such garbage and trash disposal will be determined in accordance with the ordinance and Brown County Health Department and Ohio Environmental Protection Agency regulations now in effect or as thereafter amended. The ordinance also states

each residence, business and commercial establishment shall place the garbage to be collected in a “suitable receptacle” at a point readily accessible to the collector at or near the curb line, whenever practical. The ordinance prohibits individuals, firms, or corporations from placing their garbage and refuse in receptacles owned by other residents, businesses, or commercial establishments unless prior authorization is first obtained from the village administrator. Anyone who violates that ordinance mandate shall be guilty of a minor misdemeanor and upon conviction shall be fined not more than $125 for each such violation. The measure allows Ripley residents who also own businesses or commercial establishments within the village to dispose of their household garbage and trash in the same receptacle used by their businesses or commercial establishments with the resulting charge for pickup and disposal being at the business or commercial rate. Those business or commercial establishments owners who live in Ripley and use only the business or commercial establishment garbage receptacles for their residential garbage therefore will not be charged for residential pickup.

Identity Theft Seminar slated Tuesday in Ripley A free seminar detailing measures that can be taken to prevent identity theft will be held at 6:30 p.m. this Tuesday, June 15, at the Union Township Public Library, 27 Main St. in downtown Ripley.

The Georgetown Exempted Village School District could be facing a small projected deficit this coming fiscal year, but it is not as serious an amount as what some other Ohio school districts have encountered. A lot of Ohio school districts including GEVS could suffer severe budget difficulties, however, if federal Stimulus dollars aren't part of Ohio Department of Education funding to public school districts in the near future. GEVS District Treasurer Eric Toole provided GEVS District Board of Education members a five-year forecast at their regular meeting May 19. In a June 9 telephone interview, Toole said that forecast indicated the district was looking at a budget deficit of a little more than $40,000 during the 2010-11 Fiscal Year, which begins Thursday, July 1. The treasurer said the GEVS District is working on ways to erase that possible deficit and conclude the upcoming fiscal year with a mandatory balanced budget.

He also said an estimated 7 to 8 percent of the money ODE allocates to public school districts is from federal Stimulus money, and if that source of funding to ODE dries up, school districts' budgets will suffer a major blow. Also as part of his monthly Financial Report he provides to GEVS Board members, Toole reported the district's General Fund, its biggest fund, had $1,072,937 at the end of April compared to $1,207,291 during the same period in 2009. He said one reason for a smaller General Fund at the end of this April was the fact the current fiscal year had an extra payroll period that had concluded by the end of that month than during the same period last year. Board members voted to accept Toole's Financial Report, the five-year forecast and an appropriations amendment. The board also approved applying for a waiver to ODE of the ratio requirements for special education students. That ratio mandates there cannot be a difference of more than 60 months (five complete years) from the youngest student to the oldest student in a special edu-

International program may be based in Ripley, gathering this week The president of a non-profit international program aimed at lifting people out of poverty through economic opportunities is aiming to make Ripley that program's headquarters. And Ripley will be the site of an international gathering this week as that program, A Future Without Poverty Inc., hosts a Summit event Tuesday-Friday, June 15-18, at the Ripley Community Building, which will be attended by representatives of several foreign nations. President Lives Near Ripley FWOP President Dr. Syl Flores has lived in Union Township since he accepted a two-year teaching position at Northern Kentucky University in Highland Heights, Ky., in July 2007. Flores, 56, is a native of Alice, Texas, near Corpus Christi, but moved to Shelby, Mich., near Muskegon and Lake Michigan. He mentioned how he used to come to Ohio to pick tomatoes as a migrant worker. He taught sociology courses at the University of North Texas in Denton for 19 years including those dealing with community development, poverty, global

leadership, business ethics, gerontology, and diversity training and also conducted some diversity training seminars. He said he and fellow UNT professor Stan Ingman and Carl Eckstrom, a University of Nebraska professor, and Tom Benjamin, a civil engineer from Virginia, started FWOP in 1995 as an effort to place into action some sociological theory he taught in college about ways to combat poverty through economic opportunities. Flores added he had business and counseling backgrounds, which helped him in his subsequent efforts with the program. The efforts involved with battling poverty through economic opportunities, according to Flores, include finding resources in a community that can be turned into economic and jobcreating opportunities; working to empower individual people in a community into believing they can work to improve their economic conditions; and working to make members of that entire community collectively believe they can improve their community economically. As part of what he called FWOP's success methodology, he said one individual who successfully improves his or her

Sardinia Founder's Day festival to have new events BY Wayne Boblitt The Brown County Press The 2010 Sardinia Founder's Day Celebration will have many new events when it opens for its three-day run on Friday, June 25. One of the biggest highlights for young visitors will be the return of carnival rides, and new Hot Dog Eating and Kid's Watermelon Eating contests on Saturday, June 26, and Sunday, June 27, respectively, are likely to attract several participants and observers as well. A four-hour Battle of The Bands is scheduled that Saturday afternoon on the Main Stage. Sardinia Founder's Day Committee Chairman Greg Cassidy said in a June 8 telephone interview three more bands were needed at that time to sign up for that new event. A new Firefighter Skills Competition will be a highlight that Sunday following the everpopular Grand Parade. Other new events include Kid's Olympics that Saturday afternoon at the former Sardinia Elementary School, a Horseshoe Tournament and a Kid's Magic Show that same day, and voting on entries in a Race Car Show that Sunday. Many popular events will return including the Car Show, the 4-Mile Walk and Run,

Queen and Princess Contests, the Weenie Dog Races, the Baby Contest, and the festival's three parades – the Kid's Parade on Friday night, the Pet Parade on Saturday night, and the Grand Parade on Sunday afternoon. The ever-popular food and merchandise booths will return, and scheduled musical entertainment will include Eric Penn and the Bar Codes on Friday, country music vocalist David James on Saturday, and a gospel quartet and KellyRed and the Hammerheads on Sunday. As usual, a fireworks show on Sunday night is expected to conclude the Celebration. The next Sardinia Founder's Day Committee meeting is scheduled at 7 p.m. this Tuesday, June 15, at Sardinia Town Hall, 151 Maple Ave. Anyone interested in volunteering to help out with the festival is invited and encouraged to attend. Anyone wanting further information about the Battle of The Bands or other festival events may call Cassidy at (937) 446-4454. Anyone wanting information about the 4-Mile Walk/Run may call Tom Glasscock at (937) 618-0020. Further information about the 2010 Sardinia Founder's Day Celebration including a schedule of events will be included in the June 20 edition of The Brown County Press.

economic situation because of opportunities that come his or her way can create a “snowball” effect of more individual economic success stories. Four “E”s Are Mentioned Flores said FWOP operates according to four “E”s – empowerment, environment, education and enterprise. Empowerment concerns the enabling of individuals to believe they can succeed in life. Environment concerns the consideration of factors that can affect a person's success such as a person's mother being a prostitute or his attendance at a school that has drug problems. Education concerns learning both formally in school and informally out of the classroom from such people as grandparents and mentors. Enterprise concerns jobs and economic development. Trip To Ripley Made in 1999 Ripley eventually became connected to FWOP as a result of a trip Flores made with some UNT students in 1999 to visit its historic sites including those connected to the Underground Railroad movement that helped runaway slaves escape to freedom prior to the beginning of the Civil War. “I met some of the finest people,” Flores recalled about people he came across during his visit in that Southern Brown County village. He talked about walking into Snapper's Saloon in downtown Ripley early one morning and owner Jerry Jones asking him, a first-time patron, “What can I fix you for breakfast?” He also recalled seeing some workers who had finished their shifts at a power plant drinking coffee or beer at the saloon and mentioned he met some goodhearted people there and other places during his visit to Ripley. He said he decided back then he wouldn't mind living in the Ripley area eventually. That opportunity came after he became acquainted with an NKU professor who attended a seminar he was conducting in Mexico in 2006. After talking with that professor and learning how close NKU was to Ripley, Flores said he negotiated a contract with NKU and ended up teaching sociology-related subjects there for two years including global leadership, global poverty, ethics, and team building. “I knew I was going to live in Ripley,” Flores recalled when he had secured the teaching position at NKU. Ripley May Be Headquarters Flores said he is looking into moving FWOP's headquarters to Ripley from Catlett, Va., a small community about 45 miles or so outside Washington, D.C. He said 25 to 30 FWOP employees could be working in Ripley eventually and men-

tioned its funding comes from federal, state, and international grants. Grant writers who have donated their time to FWOP have secured more than $50 million in grants for various programs with which they have associated, Flores noted, and he said some of those grant writers eventually could be FWOP employees. Since moving to the Ripley area, he has become a “cheerleader” for the village. “Ripley is a place you have to see and have to experience,” he commented. The representatives of several foreign nations attending this week's FWOP Summit in Ripley will get the opportunity to do just that. He estimated 35 to 40 representatives were coming to the conference from such nations as Mexico, Honduras, Peru, Nigeria and Cameroon. He said he expects the international visitors to possess some

Letters to the Editor

Cancer survivor says thanks Dear Editor: On May 21 and 22, at the Brown County Fairgrounds in Georgetown, friends and family gathered together to celebrate life and remember those we have lost to cancer. Those of us who participated in the Relay for Life, weathered a storm brought about by nature, but it can never compare to the storm that cancer brings into a life. that is why we “Relay.” We ride out the storm together and fight back until the day a cure is found. Cancer doesn’t sleep, it doesn’t stop for rain, it goes on...And so do we. I would like to thank everyone that participated with us and saw the sunshine through the

rain. To all our Relay teams, cancer survivors and those who attended, I thank God for all of you brave souls who were with us there, showing what it takes to beat this disease. I wish to thank our contributors, whose generosity makes Relay possible. Thanks to all of our corporate sponsors and those who helped with providing donations such as food and auction items. Those sponsors include Ole Mill, Lake Manor, Fireside Restaurant, Lees, Pepsi, Cincinnati Cyclones, Contemporary Arts Center, WalMart, La Rosa’s, Cincinnati Reds, Cincinnati Museum Center, Kentucky Down Under,

Graeters and all of our local businesses who continue to support our efforts. Thanks to our fabulous D.J. Premier Venue from Entertainment for providing entertainment all night. Thanks to Mrs. Regina Smith’s kindergarten class at RUHL for their participation in our art contest. Thanks to the Eastern High School cheerleaders and Sara Layton for their help with the survivor dinner. I’d especially like to thank Elena Cleland, our ACS partner and the RFL committee members, Denise Holden, Jone Bruce, Cindi Keith and dodie Benjamin, whose hard work

kept Relay for Life going strong all year long. I am a cancer survivor. I am able to be with my family and friends because of the love and dedication of those involved in the Relay for Life in the past and present. I will not take that gift for granted. I will keep celebrating life each day and keep fighting until we can all walk a victory lap when the cure for cancer is found. It has been an honor to be the chairperson for this year and I am proud to be chairperson for Relay 2011. Thank you and God bless you, Rene Green

Dear Editor, On behalf of the Brown County Safe Communities Coalition and the Brown County 4-H CARTEENS, I’d like to thank all of the very generous donors for our 7th annual High School Seat Belt Challenge: DeClaire Insurance Agency; Paul Hall & Associates; Ms. Jenny Kozma with The Lyon Group; Brown County Prosecutor Jessica Little; Mr. Dwight Marriott; Sales & Cahall Insurance Agency; Seip’s Auto Parts & Service; John Wood Insurance Agency; and Brown County Municipal Court Judge Joseph Worley. Why have we done this activity for so many years? Because teens traditionally have the lowest seat belt use rate of all age groups, and because seat belt use is one of those health behaviors about which many teens need constant reminders. We hope that the Challenge serves this purpose and helps to save some young lives in the process. This year the High School Seat Belt Challenge was a fourweek peer-led program conducted in our local high schools to promote consistent use of seat belts by teens. Four local high schools and the Southern Hills Career & Technical Center participated in the 2010 Challenge. Georgetown Jr./Sr. High School’s FCCLA Chapter received our First Place Award for achieving the best overall

school seat belt use rate (77%), and Ripley-Union-LewisHuntington High School’s FCCLA Chapter was our Runner-Up with a 75% school seat belt rate. The Eastern High School SADD Chapter also received an Award for the best seat belt intervention—SADD students went to an Eastern School Board meeting and convinced the Board to adopt a seat belt policy for the coming school year. Congratulations to all of these student groups (and to their faculty advisors Brenda Dixon, Michele Rau, Karla Walters, and Janie Day) for a job well done! The Seat Belt Challenge Awards were given out at the Brown County Safe Communities’Click It Or Ticket kick-off on May 21st. We express our deep appreciation to Southern Hills Career & Technical Center for hosting this kick-off event. Many, many thanks again to our Seat Belt Challenge donors and to all of the teens and adults at the participating schools who cared enough to get involved. This school year is about to end, and (unfortunately) we are entering one of the deadliest times of the year for teen drivers-- summer vacation time. As responsible parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, and other citizens concerned with teen safety, let’s all set good examples for our youth and remember to buckle up every time, every

These are just a few of the many ways you can honor the 1.3 million Americans who currently serve in the U.S. Armed Forces, as well as the millions more who have sacrificed much for our freedom. As a nation of free peoples, we are Ronald Reagan’s “shining city on a hill” and continue to be a beacon of hope and opportunity around the world. As one of the many Americans in uniform who have fought for the red, white and blue, I am proud to honor Old Glory not just on Flag Day, but every day. Rep. Bubp may be reached by calling (614) 644-6034 or by writing to: Representative Danny Bubp, 77 S. High Street, 10th Floor, Columbus, Ohio 43215. He may also be reached by email at

“What's the best place where you ever have taken a summer vacation?”

Local teen needs help making dream come true Dear Editor, My name is Jamie Townsend, my family and I are residents of Lake Lorelie. With so many of our young people facing challenges today I thought that highlighting a positive may encourage others. Let me start off by telling you that I have a 15 year old daughter (Jessica Crowe) who attends Fayetteville-Perry High. Some months back she was invited to compete at the district level in the National American Miss Ohio pageant. Jessica was selected as a state finalist, and will compete at the

Jr. Teen level for the title of Miss Jr. Teen Ohio, on Aug. 1 and 2 in Columbus. As I am sure you are aware their are entry fees associated with the competition. To date Jessica has collected approx. $220.00 of the money needed, although she still needs about $300 more. John's Flowers, Houck's Jeep Parts, and All About You Salon and Spa, have all sponsored Jessica, all donations are tax deductible. For sponsorship information please contact Jamie Townsend at (513) 8758106. Jamie Townsend

Identity theft prevention program coming to Ripley Dear Editors, I just wanted to be sure your readers know about the program being sponsored by Ripley's Neighborhood Watch Group on the subject of identity theft. This will be held in the meeting room of the Ripley Library on Tuesday, June 15, at 6:30 p.m. More and more, you hear about people's identities being stolen, causing all manner of financial and personal grief. I know we think "it can't happen to us" or "nobody

would want my identity", but this is not necessarily the case. This will be a professional presentation, given by the Western Southern Financial Group, and could quite possibly provide valuable insight into the ever-increasing chance of having your identity stolen. It is completely free, and is simply being done for the benefit of the community. Dotty Prevost, member of the Ripley Neighborhood Watch



On June 14th, we will have an opportunity as Americans to celebrate Flag Day and reflect upon the rich history of the symbol of our nation. We live freely and securely because of the valiance of our founding fathers who fought to bring about a new era of liberty, prosperity and selfreliance—the same values that our military defends to this day. The Stars and Stripes are a constant reminder that freedom certainly is not free, and we have an obligation as Americans to never forget the blood, sweat and tears that were shed in defense of our flag. In 1777, the Continental Congress passed the first Flag Act, which replaced the British Union Jack with Old Glory—a flag of 13 red and white stripes and 13 white stars in a blue field. Over the next 135 years, the flag adopted a variety of arrangements and proportions, and in 1912, President William Howard Taft standardized the American flag as we know it today. According to the United States Flag Code, “the flag represents a living country and is itself considered a living thing.” For this reason, Americans throughout the centuries have paid special reverence to Old Glory and her significance throughout history. Our flag has witnessed all the milestones that have graced our nation’s timeline, from leading the charge on our battlefields to landing on the moon in 1969. She has draped her colors upon the caskets of fallen troops and

that was overseeing the proposed condominium development in Washington Township. Chris Johns, vice president of Productions for HBS Development Inc., spoke about the proposed development at the Washington Township Board of Trustees' regular meeting on June 25, 2007. The development was to be constructed near White Oak Golf Course, which is along Tri-County Highway between Sardinia and Mt. Orab. At an informational meeting which Johns had organized in Sardinia on June 19, 2007, to discuss his proposal, he said 124 condominium units were planned as part of the project's first phase. A large number of township residents who live near the proposed development showed up at the June 25, 2007, trustees' meeting to voice opposition to that proposal. At that meeting, the Washington Township Board of Trustees voted 2-1 to close a section of Shroufe Road near the proposed development. Trustees Janie Wills and Alan Hanselman supported the closing while

Trustee David Dotson opposed that proposal. Wills and Hanselman were named individually as defendants in White Oak Property Development's lawsuit which was heard in the District Court and the U.S. Court of Appeals. Washington Township also was named as a defendant as also was the Washington Township Board of Trustees. Plaintiff's Claims Outlined The developer brought forth the following claims against the defendants in the lawsuit following the 2007 chain of events: The Zoning Resolution approved by Washington Twp. to deny construction of the development was unconstitutional on its face. Defendants had violated the federal Fair Housing Act. Defendants violated the developer's substantive and procedural due process rights. The township violated Ohio law by acting outside its statutory authority. Defendants engaged in a civil conspiracy in violation of Ohio and federal law. Circuit Court Decides The Circuit Court decided on the plaintiff's claims thusly in

dismissing them: While the developer claimed the Zoning Resolution was vague in limiting residential dwellings to the Single Family type and that the term “dwelling” reportedly was defined generally, the court stated the Zoning Resolution's “Permitted Uses” section unambiguously restricted Residential District dwellings to Single Family. The “Permitted Uses” and “Intensity of Use/Lot Size” sections, when taken together, take away any vagueness about what type of dwelling the Zoning Resolution permitted, according to the Circuit Court. While the plaintiff claimed the

CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 Versailles, Ky., a city near Lexington, Ky. Riggs reported she was director of Food Service at St. Patrick School in Maysville, which served about 265 students each school day. She said while she retired late last year and was retired for eight months, “I couldn't stand it.” She said some acquaintances suggest she open a restaurant in the old Brown Restaurant's building, and she rose to that challenge. It took two months to bring the building up to code with such items as new mop sinks and new water and sewer lines, and the building had to pass building, water and sewer, and food service inspections. After a food service inspector visited the building on June 3 and approved that aspect of its operation, Riggs said Ruby's workers cooked “all day” Friday, June 4, and up until 4 p.m. Saturday, June 5, at which time Ruby's opened to the public. Riggs reported while there wasn't a large crowd when the new eatery opened for breakfast at 7 a.m. this past Sunday, June 6, a crowd started arriving about 11 a.m. that day, and customers had to stand in line for up to at least 30 minutes at a time.

manner, the township did afford the developer the opportunity to be heard, according to the Circuit Court. “Merely because White Oak disagrees with the township's rejection of its proposal does not mean that the township deprived it of adequate notice and a meaningful opportunity to be heard,” the decision stated. Asked about the Circuit Court's decision, Wills, the only Washington Township trustee who served in 2007 who is still on that township's governing board, simply said, “I am very happy with the decision”, but declined further comment.

tried to close about 4 p.m. this past Sunday, customers kept arriving, and she said while original plans called for the restaurant to be open 7 a.m.-3 p.m. on Sundays, the Sunday hours have been changed to 7 a.m.-8 p.m. She said the parking lot was full last Sunday. Customers perusing a Ruby's menu will discover the selections are accompanied by people's names such as Tony's Grilled Cheese, Sarah's Fried Catfish and Mary's Potato Soup. Riggs said she named the dishes after family members and friends and some other people she knows such as doctors and lawyers. She also named Shy's Children Menu after her Pomeranian, the only animal honored on the menu. Ruby's fare includes a wide variety of breakfast items including omelets, soups, salads, pastas, entrees, platter selections, desserts, side order items, children's selections and beverages. A Breakfast Buffet is offered Saturdays and Sundays only and includes such items as eggs, hash browns, and sausage and gravy, Riggs reported. Salad enthusiasts may choose to make Ruby's Salad Bar a meal in itself. Riggs said

customers who order the Salad Bar as a meal get their choice of one soup to go with the meal. The Salad Bar contains such items as fresh vegetables and fruits, green olives, pickles, raisins, and cottage cheese. She said the cole slaw, potato salad, macaroni salad, Waldorf salad, and croutons on the Salad Bar are made fresh at the restaurant. Riggs said a signature salad at the restaurant is Ruby's pineapple chicken salad, which is served with fresh fruit and a muffin, and a signature dessert is Ruby's strawberry daiquiri chiffon pie (which is non-alcoholic). The new eatery doesn't serve alcoholic beverages but offers customers non-alcoholic frozen margaritas, strawberry daiquiris and pina coladas. Knowing how many of her customers enjoy country cooking, Riggs said Ruby's offers brown beans with onions on the side, fried corn bread and fried potatoes every day. She also mentioned a scalloped chicken special dish she served seemed to go over well with customers. Ruby's menu selections also include such items as lasagna, oysters, salmon, meat loaf, fried bologna, turkey sandwiches, chicken and dumplings, shrimp scampi, chef salads, apple walnut cake with fresh apples and

walnuts, and bread pudding. Riggs said she has worked in the restaurant business because she likes serving customers. “I love people and making them happy and greeting them at the door.” While she said she works at Ruby's seven days a week and serves as one of its managers, she added Frank Flaugher, who is well known in the Aberdeen area for his work at other restaurants, and her daughter, Rachel Sweet, are co-managers since she can't be at the restaurant all the time. She said while she is training employees now, she anticipates having no more than 10 to 15 full-time and part-time workers in the future. Riggs said she wanted to invite members of the public to stop by and see what Ruby's has to offer to satisfy their appetites and said they will be treated as if they were visiting a home. “It would be our pleasure to serve you and cook and wash the dishes for you,” Riggs said in her invitation. In addition to the previously mentioned Sunday hours, Ruby's is open 6 a.m.-9 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays and 6 a.m.-10 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays. Ruby's may be reached at (937) 795-2252.

A group of Brown County Master Gardener Volunteers met with an enthusiastic group of gardeners at the Ohio Veterans Home at Georgetown this recently. We hope to meet once a month to visit, work and check the progress of the gardens. The large raised beds in the courtyard are accessible to gardeners that have limited movement capabilities. One resident planted his cabbage on April 3 and the plants are beautiful. As we took a tour of their gardens, it became evident that these gardeners take their hobby seriously! Plans were made to help clear some of the beds, amend the soil, till, and help with other jobs as needed. It was fun to see Master Gardeners becoming fast friends with the gardening Veterans. I hope to give a monthly update of our work at the Ohio Veterans HomeGeorgetown. Many gardeners do not have the space to garden on a grand scale. They may be limited by the boundaries of their property, or limited by time and energy. But, they can still have a garden that is colorful, productive, and adds to the enjoyment of life. Why not garden in containers? Many containers can function as suitable gardens with slight modification; a simple hanging basket, window boxes in an assortment of styles and materials, an old clay pot , a half whiskey barrel- you are limited

only by your imagination and creativity! Because containers offer limited space for roots to thrive, the gardener must supply the best conditions possible. Potting mixes should have the proper structure to provide air and hold water, drain properly to prevent water-logging, and be heavy enough to support the plant. A good mix consists of one part each of potting soil, Perlite, sphagnum peat moss and compost. When garden space is limited, certain cultivars of cucumbers, peppers, squash and tomatoes can be easily grown in large containers with plants still producing the same amount as garden planted varieties. In order to be successful you must first choose those varieties suitable for growing in containers. These varieties generally have a reduced growth habit and will not grow too large for a container. The seed packet information should include whether or not the cucumbers and squash varieties are suitable for container gardening. Most varieties of peppers and tomatoes are suitable for containers. The biggest advantage to container growing is that you can grow them just about anywhere in the yard providing they get at least 8 hours of sunlight. They can be easily moved as needed and fruit can be harvested with ease. The disadvantage to container growing is that you have to watch the watering more closely as they are above ground and dry out quickly. Depending on the growth habit of the plant, it may be beneficial to stake it. Be sure to

place the stakes in the pot before filling it with soil and before you plant. There are several types of staking systems to use depending on the plant. A good type of staking system to use with cucumbers is a teepee form that allows the plants grow up the stakes. Tomato cages or stakes can be used to support tomatoes and peppers. Squash may or may not require staking, depending on plant growth habits. Fill the container three-fourths full with the soil mix. Select stocky, vigorous plants and position the plant close to the stake and fill in the soil mix around the plant. Water thoroughly; if the soil settles, add more soil until it comes to within 1/2 inch of the top of the container. For direct-seeding squash and cucumbers, fill the container close to the top and plant five to six seeds in the center of the pot, covering with ? inch of soil mix. Water and keep the soil warm. After germination, cut off the seedlings, except for the two largest, to avoid overcrowding. After they reach a height of 8 to 10 inches, cut off one, leaving only one plant per container. Avoid pulling out the seedlings as this disturbs the roots of the remaining seedlings. Place the container in a site with full sun and protection from the wind. Check the plants daily for watering needs. By mid-July, begin to use a fertilizer solution for supplemental feeding.

I grow a variety of herbs in large pots on my deck which is just a few steps from my kitchen. There’s a large plant of catnip for my Kitty, chives for the salad, sage, tarragon, lemon balm, parsley, and basil to provide color and scent to the deck area. I have planted ornamental grasses, sedge and flax in my large pots on the porch to add a variety of height and color to the landscape. Look around your property for container planting opportunities! One of my favorite containers for Hens and Chicks is an old Red Wing work shoe! There is a great fact sheet on Gardening in Containers available at Gardening in small spaces can be very rewarding and fun!

NOT BAPTISM John 3: 1 “There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews”. Nicodemus was a member of the Sanhedrin. The Sanhedrin was a group of 70 men who had great authority in the nation of Israel. These were the elders who made all the final decisions for the nation. He was very important, intelligent, and educated man. However, Jesus knew that he had one very important thing which was lacking. Look at verses 2-4: “The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God; for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him. Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born?” Jesus said: “...Ye must be born again.” It did not matter that this was a very important man. It would not have mattered if he had been a very poor beggar. It does not matter who you are, what position you have, or if you’re rich or poor; if you ever want to see the kingdom of God you must be born again. But Nicodemus could not understand what Jesus was talking about. Why would it be necessary to be born again? Jesus did not say it was an option; it was absolutely necessary. We can all point to a place or date when we were born. I know when I was born and I know where I was born. I also know that I was born a sinner. So were you. I know this because the Bible tells us in Romans 3:23: “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God”. It all goes back to Adam and Eve. When they committed that first sin, then every one of their children was born into sin. In other words, they inherited that sin from their father when they were born. And it has been passed down ever since. Just look around. Sin has never left us. I have heard people say; well no one is perfect. That is absolutely correct. We are all sinners. Therefore, we must all be born again. It is the only way to be reconciled back to God. I have had someone tell me that they had a born-again experience. When I asked them what they meant they said: When I was in the hospital my heart stopped and


DR. CHARLES SMITH MT. ORAB BIBLE BAPTIST CHURCH they revived me. It was like I was born again. Ladies and gentlemen, that is not being born again! That is still physical life. Jesus was not talking about a physical rebirth. He was talking about a spiritual birth. Being born again is when the power of God changes your life and you are born into God’s family. You are no longer just a child of man but also a child of God. A spiritual birth is the only way into the kingdom of God. But Nicodemus did not understand this, he was still thinking about a physical birth. Look at verse 5: Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.” Jesus was talking about both births. Born of water is the first birth, your physical birth; and born of the Spirit is the second birth, your spiritual birth. When babies are born there is water involved. A woman’s water must break before she gives birth. Without that physical birth there can be no second birth. That is pretty elementary, although some people want to bring baptism into that verse. But the question which Jesus was answering was: “How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born?” Nicodemus was not asking about baptism. He wanted to know how to be born again. “Jesus said: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” II Corinthians 5:17 tells us: “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” You are born a new creature by believing in the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ, repenting of your sin and calling upon His holy name. Romans 10:9-13.

Western, was making his second appearance in the state meet. His goal was to improve on last year’s finish and make the podium. Tudor did just that with a toss of 154 feet, 8 inches. Tudor earned eighth place and a spot on the podium. “It was a great experience and was a lot of fun,” said Tudor. “We had a weather delay after my flight threw. When the second flight came back an hour later, I think the delay messed with their heads, which gave me an advantage.”

Sports Shorts Georgetown to host second annual pee wee cheer camp The Georgetown Varsity and junior varsity cheerleaders will be conducting their second annual Pee Wee Cheer Camp this summer for students who will be entering grades 1-6 for the 2010-2011 school year. The camp dates are June 21-25, from 6 p.m. until 8 p.m., and will be held at Georgetown High School. On Friday, June 25, 2010, there will be a program for the parents at 6 p.m. at Georgetown High School. Campers will be instructed on jumps and motions. The

When asked what he needed to do to get back for a third time next season, Tudor talked about off-season workouts. “I have to train a lot,” said Tudor. “I need to get in the weight room more, and I’ve already started. I’ve got to get my technique down and get better at what I do.” Adamson, a freshman at Georgetown, was making his first appearance at the state competition. He hurled the shot put just over 49 feet, putting him in 13th place in the event.

Georgetown’s Jess Adamson heaves the shot put during the Ohio state track and field meet held in Columbus last weekend. Adamson’s best throw was just over 49 feet.

“I was extremely nervous,” said Adamson. “I haven’t been in front of that many people throwing before. I also found out that a college coach, who I am interested in throwing for, was there rooting for me.” “After I fouled and the shot put slipped on my second throw, I told him that I choked. He said ‘No, you didn’t. You threw with your heart and not your head.’ that was so true. If I learned anything, I learned that you must throw calm. You can’t go into the ring stiff.”

When asked what it would take to get back next year, Adamson also mentioned offseason workouts. “I have to work on my technique and gain a lot of strength before next year,” said Adamson. “I don’t think I’ll be quite so nervous. I should be better prepared.” Congratulations to both competitors from The Brown County Press, making the state meet puts you in elite company.

Hillsboro American Legion Post 129 dropped its season opener on Saturday to Chillicothe Post 62 by a score of 9-6. Three Brown County players saw action on Saturday in Hillsboro. Western’s Nate Gillam and Eastern’s Brett and Brandon Carrington all contributed offensively in the loss. Brett Carrington went 1for-4 on the day, scoring a run. Brandon Carrington went 1for-4 with a double, two RBI’s and scored a run. Gillam also scored a run after entering the game as a pinch runner. The Carrington brothers have played for Hillsboro before. This is Gillam’s first year with the team. All three players have been coached well in high school and have a pretty good understanding of the game. As coach of the team, I expect a little more from those guys, given their backgrounds. Post 129 started slowly, allowing Chillicothe to score eight runs in four innings. The Hillsboro bats came alive in the bottom of the fourth. Airic Steagall

(Hillsboro) walked and moved to second when Brett Carrington reached on an error. Brandon Carrington drove them both home with a double into the left field gap. Nathaniel Miller (Fairfield) followed with an RBI-double, closing the gap to 8-3. Hillsboro threatened again in the bottom of the fifth, leaving the bases loaded. Post 62 picked up an insurance run in the top of the seventh, making the score 9-3 heading into the bottom of the final frame. In the seventh, Matt Kibler (East Clinton) led off the inning with a single. Gillam replaced him as a pinch runner. Cody Shaver (Wilmington) walked, followed by a single off the bat of Brandon Arehart (Wilmington). Steagall delivered a base-clearing double, closing the gap to 9-6. Brett Carrington reached on an infield single, moving Steagall to third with only one out. but the rally ended with a strikeout and a ground out and Post 129 fell, 9-6. We were a little nervous at the plate that first time through the lineup. Once we got settled in, we did a nice job at the plate. Defensively, we played a good game. Troy Cosler (Washington Court House) took the loss on the hill. He worked 3 and 1/3 innings, allowing eight runs, all earned, on seven hits. Cosler walked two and struck out one. Tucker Hughes (Miami Trace) pitched 3 and 2/3 innings of relief. He allowed one run, earned, on four hits. Hughes walked one and struck out two. Arehart, Steagall, both Carringtons, Miller, Kibler, Corey Walker (Hillsboro) and Zach Uhl (McClain) had one hit each for Post 129. Hillsboro was set to travel to Troy’s Duke Park this weekend to play in the annual Troy Wooden Bat Tournament.

A Family’s Prayer Please listen to the following story and decide if you could help a local family with their son's medical treatment or assist in fundraisers in any way. Paul is 25 years old and he is in need of a bone marrow transplant but is awaiting Medicaid. The doctors at UC hospital have been helping to keep him stable until he can get into Jewish hospital; however, without Medicaid Paul cannot receive the transplant. With only a few members in his family, they are struggling daily to buy his medications and foods. The family cannot afford to pay for insurance so waiting for Medicaid is the only option. Paul began having serious health concerns when he quickly dropped to 105 pounds and was experiencing fainting spells in May 2009; this was only the beginning. For months, countless medical tests were conducted as the doctors could not find the diagnosis. Meanwhile, Paul’s organs began to shut down because he could barely eat from the pains in his stomach. Recently, a team of doctors joined together to study his case and discovered the truth. Paul has developed an auto immune disease that attacked his intestines, heart, and bone marrow. The heart’s electrical system was attacked to the point that in February 2010 he had to get a pacemaker. Paul had to receive blood transfusions to help keep him stable along with medications, supplements, and a special diet. Paul cannot work and does not receive any income during these troubled times besides the $200 in food stamps that the county has provided. Paul’s family has been trying to help as they can but do not have the money for all the care he needs. Please help to support this young man as he waits for Medicaid to get into Jewish hospital where he can receive the proper care he needs. You can make a donation at any U.S. Bank location to the Paul Beckelhymer Foundation. If you have any ideas or available places for fundraisers as well as further questions, please contact his sister, Dalenea via email at

Thank You

More SBAAC Spring Sports All-Stars


The Vintage American Race Car group kicked off their season with a visit to Moler Raceway Park Friday night. The VARC club is made up of old-time race cars who travel the country and visit different race tracks and display their cars for the fans in the grandstand area and then suit up and hit the race track for some racing action. In their 15-lap feature event it was Sinking Springs, Ohio’s Johnny Lawhorn in his 60’s era sprint car taking the win over the 1980 Silver Crown series car of Dan Swank. Finishing in third position was a 1939 Ford Sedan driven by Franklin, Ohio’s Scott Swain. Swank won the eight-lap heat race. In the regular racing action it was a night of attrition as a

number of vehicles had problems and were unable to make the start of the 25-lap Sunesis Construction Late Model feature event. Rick Combs and Barry Doss won heat races. In the feature, Doss jumped out in the lead but Bradford, Ohio’s Wayne Chinn was right on his bumper in one of CJ Rayburn’s CT525 engine cars. On lap 7 Chinn took the lead but the racing behind him was fast and furious as Marty O’Neil, John Whitney and Skylar Marlar battled for top five positions. In the end, it was Chinn in his Sugarcreek Packaging, Erwin Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge sponsored machine rolling to victory lane for the first time this year. Doss came home second, followed by Winfield, Tennessee’s Marlar, O’Neil

and Larry Pickelheimer, Jr. In the Mt. Orab Ford Modifieds, it was another full field of cars on hand to battle for supremacy. In heat race action, it was Doug Adkins, Devin Gilpin and Dave Jamison winning heats with Davey Warnock claiming the B-main event. In the feature, it was a wild start as Adkins jumped from third to first on the first turn only to have the caution come out and lined the cars back up for a complete restart. On the restart, the front row of Jamison and Gilpin jumped out front with Adkins and hard-charging Weasel Rhodes in tow. Gilpin led the first four laps before a threewide battle allowed Rhodes to lead lap 5 and Adkins lead laps 6 and 7. Gilpin then took control and led the remaining

laps, claiming his second feature in a row at MRP and third of the season in his Gilstrap Motors, Dasco Race Supply, Impressive Racecar sponsored machine. Rhodes came home second with Adkins in third. Fourth place was claimed by Murrell Nafe, who charged back through the pack following a lap 12 spin, and Dave McWilliams came home fifth after jumping into a different car following mechanical difficulties in hot laps. The Holman Motors Chevettes took an interesting turn at the start of the night as point leader Miles Tarvin had difficulties in hot laps and had to retire for the evening. In the heat races, it was Kevin Riggs, Sean Jones and Scott Ramp claiming victories. In the feature event, it was Jones taking

the lead for the first seven laps before defending track champion Jeff Watson took the lead in traffic and set sail on the field. With two laps to go, the first caution of the event came out, setting up a restart, but Jones was no match for Watson as he sailed to his fifth feature win of the season. Jones came home second with Blake Naylor making his return behind the wheel successful as he charged from 11th starting spot to third place in the feature event. Rusty Yarger and Ramp completed the top five positions. In the US Race Gear street stock action, it was newcomer Jamey Adams winning heat race No. 1 while last week’s feature winner Jeremy Scott won heat race No. 2. In the feature, it was a great battle as

Adams and Scott raced sideby-side for the first four laps before Scott jumped out front. Following a lap seven caution for Dave Kirker, Adams jumped out front and led to the finish. The Laurelville, Ohio native claimed his first victory of the season at MRP in his Thomas Gas, Helterbran Trucking, RA Smith Photo, Precision Grinding sponsored machine. Jeremie Bretz claimed the second spot followed by Scott, Scott Hess and Chad Barr. On June 11, MRP will host a Street Stock Special with $600 to win. On June 18, it will be L&M Performance Night, ALMS Series with $2,000 to win.

Nearly 200 dogs have left The Brown County Animal Shelter to find new homes throughout neighboring states – some as far away as New York, Minnesota or Louisiana. The Brown County Humane Society, in partnership with the Brown County Animal Shelter and rescue groups throughout the Midwest, save the lives of these homeless pets by arranging transports to their new locations. These transports have become known as the dogs’ “underground railroad”. Pet adoptions are increasing in Brown County, but there aren’t nearly enough local homes for the 65 or more dogs taken to the shelter each month. Humane Society member, Marion Misch, has saved nearly


Manana Farms Spring Dressage and Horse Trials coming to Mt. Orab Elyse Glover owner and trainer at Manana Farms, Mt. Orab, will be presenting her 9th Annual Dressage Show and Horse Trials Saturday, June 19 at 1 p.m. (Dressage) and Sunday, June 20 at 9 a.m. (Horse Trials). Spectators are welcome to come out and enjoy the events free of charge. Manana Farms are located at 414 N. High St. Mt. Orab.

200 local dogs by making the connections between the dogs, the rescuers and the transporters. Misch photographs shelter dogs, places them on the Internet, and fields questions from rescue groups. If a rescue can be arranged, Misch often makes the first “leg” of the transport to the dog’s new home. Sometimes that first leg is a short trip to Milford, Ohio, where the dog is transferred to another vehicle. Sometimes it’s to Indianapolis or Columbus, and often, she’s transporting four or five dogs at a time. The day of the transport, volunteers meet at the shelter, walk and exercise the dogs, and help load them into crates. Some lucky dog gets to ride as copilot in the front seat. It’s a hectic, noisy time, but the dogs seem to know they’re on the adventure of their lives. At a pre-arranged location, often a shopping center parking lot, the dogs are transferred to other vehicles headed in different directions. These transfers are repeated until the dog reaches his new home. The dog “underground railroad” is a vast collection of volunteers who freely donate their time, gasoline and vehicles to move the dogs across the country for their last chance at a home. Thanks to volunteers on the “underground railroad”, Brown County’s shelter dogs now live in Minnesota, Louisiana,

Transporters are featured in a new series beginning on Saturday, June 19 (8 p.m.) on TV’s “Animal Planet”. The show, “Last Chance Highway” takes viewers on transports across the country. The Brown County Humane Society would welcome volunteers to help save lives and transport dogs. Call 378-2210 and leave a message to volunteer or for more information.
