Van Tielen gets 24 years BY Wayne Gates The Brown County Press A visibly shaken John Van Tielen was sentenced to 24 years in prison on June 1. Van Tielen, 51, pleaded guilty May 17 to four counts of pandering sexually oriented material involving a minor. He originally faced ten counts of that charge following his arrest in Ripley last March. Brown County Sheriff’s Office investigators were led to Van Tielens door following a raid on a Georgia home by investigators in that state. A computer was seized and Van Tielens IP address was traced from e-mails that were sent containing child pornography. Georgia authorities contacted Brown County and a search warrant was obtained for Van Tielen’s home. Van Tielens computer and other media storage devices were seized and sent to the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation for forensic computer analysis. Chief Deputy John Schadle of the Brown County Sheriff’s

Office said last March that the images discovered were “some of the worst he had ever seen”. Judge Gusweiler agreed. “Repulsed does not even begin to describe my reaction to those photos”, the Judge said in court during the sentencing hearing. Gusweiler went on to talk about the children depicted in the photographs, some of them infants. “Heaven only knows what scars they will carry with them”, Gusweiler said. Christine Tailer, Van Tielens attorney, mentioned letters of support that people who know Van Tielen had submitted on behalf of her client. She also mentioned that Van Tielen had been very cooperative in the Brown County Jail with no incidents reported since his incarceration. Tailer mentioned that Van Tielen had been a productive member of the Ripley community following his release from a 30 year prison sentence for the rape of a New Jersey woman. He was jailed in 1991 and released in 2007 after serving 17 years.

He then moved to Ripley. When Tailer mentioned alternatives such as community control and GPS monitoring of his location, Gusweiler told her he was bound by law to send Van Tielen to prison. “I can’t consider community control. I can’t consider home monitoring or anything like that”, the Judge said. Gusweiler then asked Van Tielen if he had anything to say. Van Tielen was shaking in his seat at that point and visibly crying. “Take your time”, Gusweiler said. After a couple of moments, Van Tielen rose to speak. “I let my fiancee down, I let my son down and I let my community down”, he said in a quavering voice. “I don’t excuse what I’ve done. I just want to get help and use whatever years I have left to come back home and watch my son grow up.” Then he sat back down at the defense table and hung his head. Judge Gusweiler then began the formal sentencing, saying that he

had to take the safety of the community into account and that based on the pre-sentencing investigation, he felt the risk of Van Tielen reoffending was high. Gusweiler then moved through each count. “On count one...I sentence you to six years”. Van Tielen began to weep. Gusweiler continued. “On count two...I sentence you to six year to run consecutively to count one.” Van Tielen knew the word “consecutive” meant that the second six years would be served after the first six...and that his prison time had gone from six to twelve years. “Count three will run consecutively to count two”. Eighteen years. “Count four will run consecutively to count three”. 24 years. Each time Judge Gusweiler spoke the word “consecutively” Van Tielen sobbed loudly. After Judge Gusweiler informed Van Tielen that he was being classified as a Tier II sex CONTINUED ON PAGE 6

Brown County Commissioners put BCGH back on the market BY Wayne Gates The Brown County Press The Brown County General Hospital is up for sale again. Essent Healthcare of Nashville, TN, pulled out of a planned agreement to purchase the hospital last month at the last minute, surprising everyone involved. Now the process of finding a financial partner for the hospital is essentially starting over.

“We want to do the best thing we can do to keep healthcare in Brown County”, said Board of Commissioners President Margery Paeltz. Paeltz said that a buyer for the hospital would be preferable to signing a management agreement for the facility, but both options would be considered. Following the announcement that Essent was pulling out of the sale of the hospital,

Mike Patterson, Brown County Regional HealthCARE CEO, said that BCGH had made progress to ensure future success for the facility, including adding a pediatrician and two OB/GYN’s to the staff. “We are also very pleased to have recently incorporated new diagnostic technology to better meet the needs of the community.

Gusweiler and Meranda attorneys make final cases on motion to dismiss lawsuit BY Wayne Gates The Brown County Press

Remembering the Fallen on Memorial Day in Ripley Second Vice President Charlene Stein with Courts-Fussnecker American Legion Post 367 Auxiliary in Ripley throws a red wreath off Ripley's Red Oak Creek Bridge in remembrance of sailors and Marines who have lost their lives at sea during a pause in the Ripley Memorial Day Parade on May 31. See page 2 for full story.

An appointed judge will now decide whether the lawsuit filed by Brown County Clerk of Courts Tina Meranda against Common Pleas Judge Scott Gusweiler will be dismissed. Retired Hamilton County Common Pleas Judge Thomas Nurre heard final arguments

on the motion to dismiss the case on June 1. He has taken the matter under advisement and will issue a ruling in the coming weeks. Attorneys George Jonson and Lisa Zaring represented Judge Gusweiler and Meranda was represented by Attorney Eric Deters. Neither Meranda or Gusweiler attended the hear-

ing and neither party broke any new ground during the proceeding. Jonson told Nurre that “the Plaintiff (Meranda) is trying to blur the actions of the Defendant (Gusweiler) into a bald threat of arrest” rather than acknowledge that Gusweiler had the authority to issue a court order demanding a set of keys to her office.

ceeded northward on North High Street to the cemetery. A Color Guard from Marine Corps Leatherneck Detachment 393 in Batavia carried the flags and led the parade, which also included, among other units, members of the Wilson Sroufe Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 9772, the parade and Memorial Service organizer; Post 9772 Auxiliary members; the Western Brown High School marching band; WBHS Junior Reserve Officers' Training Corps cadets; Mt. Orab Women's Club mem-

bers; and some Scout troop representatives. Following the playing of “The Star-Spangled Banner” by a quartet of WBHS band members, Memorial Service emcee Bill Cornetet, a past VFW Post 9772 commander, welcomed those attending on behalf of the Post and its Auxiliary. Cornetet clarified at the beginning of his brief talk how some published reports about him being a Korean War veteran were inaccurate; instead, he had CONTINUED ON PAGE 2

BY Wayne Boblitt The Brown County Press Hugh Cahall is being remembered by friends as an honest and upright man in both his business and his daily life. Mr. Cahall, a former Mt. Orab businessman, died May 13 at age 86. One of his sons, Grant Cahall, talked about how his father opened Cahall's Clothing Store, a retail business that sold a variety of men's and women's clothing, in 1946 in the vicinity of where the Cuppa Coffee Cafe

is located now at 104 N. High St. in downtown Mt. Orab. Grant Cahall said his father was a clothing businessman for 60 years, and the business evolved over the years into what became Cahall's Workwear Store on South High Street in downtown Mt. Orab. At one time his father's business was in the building that now houses the Kelly and Wallace Law Office at 108 S. High St. in downtown Mt. Orab. Grant Cahall said as the years passed, his father's clothing CONTINUED ON PAGE 5

Mt. Orab police officers honored at council meeting BY Wayne Boblitt The Brown County Press Several Mt. Orab police officers, including two who were shot at by an assailant this past Jan. 3, were honored at the Mt. Orab Village Council meeting on June 1, and two also were promoted to higher positions. Mt. Orab Police Chief Bryan Mount first recognized four officers who in 2009 had met 30 percent or more of the Standards for Law Enforcement Physical Assessment set by the Dallas-based Cooper Institute. The four, who were present-

ed certificates by Mt. Orab Mayor Bruce Lunsford, included Lt. Josh Black and patrolmen Jason Hahn, Joe Layton and Justin Conley. Mount then recognized and Lunsford presented a certificate to Patrolman George Baker for his work advising Explorer Post 16, a Boy Scouts of America affiliate sponsored by the Mt. Orab Police Department. “I'm of the opinion George has changed kids headed in the wrong direction in life,” Mayor Bruce Lunsford said. Mount then recognized and CONTINUED ON PAGE 21

served with the U.S. Army in Korea in 1969 and 1970 more than a decade after the Korean War had ended. “It is wonderful that we are able to gather here today on this hallowed ground,” he said concerning the cemetery, mentioning how so many military servicemen and women buried in America gave their “last measure of devotion” by dying in service to the United States. Cornetet said it was sad how many people today do not understand the sacrifices soldiers, sailors, Marines and airmen have made for the United States. Cornetet said those gathered at the Mt. Orab Cemetery were not there to be honored but to honor, “to show our respect, gratitude and love to those who have passed before us”. Brown County Auditor Doug Green then sang “America The Beautiful” before Bubp delivered his keynote speech. A former serviceman in Iraq with the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve, the speaker commented about how the particular outfit he was wearing that day was one worn by servicemen and ser-

vicewomen in Iraq to help them bear the extreme heat in that Middle Eastern nation. He mentioned how the hottest temperature he experienced during his time there was 141 degrees and how servicemen and servicewomen had to wear gloves to be able to touch machinery. He saluted the American men and women serving their country in the Middle East and reported how a 24-year-old Texas man had become the 1,000th member of the military to die in Afghanistan the previous Thursday, May 27, when he stepped on a land mine. Bubp mentioned how that Marine, Cpl. Jason Leicht, was born on the Fourth of July, and despite having being wounded in military service previously, he requested to serve in Afghanistan again. “He wanted to serve his country and serve with his fellow Marines.” After commenting, “What better place to be on Memorial Day than here where so many are resting in peace,” Bubp also directed his listeners' attention

toward those former military personnel who are still living. “We do not forget those who have served,” he said. “We love our veterans. We need to give them proper respect and to honor them.” After Green sang “God Bless The U.S.A.,” VFW Post 9772 member Jack Burch delivered another speech. A retired U.S. Army sergeant major, Burch talked about how he remembered many Memorial Days as a serviceman on a battlefield. He said he spent 15 of his 30 years in the Army on battlefields. “I'm not trying to portray myself as a hero,” Burch said. “The heroes are the ones who gave their all so I could be here to honor them.” Burch said he enlisted in the Army at age 16 in May 1945, and his parents had to sign for him, but he wasn't sworn in until June 1945. He also talked about some combat missions in which he participated during his career and how a good friend of his lost

his life while right by his side. He talked about how a platoon he was in had taken a village during the Korean War but had lost 30 percent of its men while doing so. VFW Post 9772 Chaplain Bill Graybill then offered a prayer and mentioned therein how so many more people should have been at the cemetery that day to honor deceased military service personnel and how those gathered never should forget the United States' prisoners of war and missing in action servicemen from past wars. Following the prayer and a wreath ceremony, five members of Marine Corps Leatherneck Detachment 393 fired rifles to salute their departed comrades of all military branches, and WBHS Band Director Scott Reed and band member Michael Hall played “Taps” on trumpets in solemn remembrance. Bodley lowered the U.S. flag on the pole by the makeshift monument to half-staff to conclude the 2010 Memorial Day Program at Mt. Orab Cemetery.

Memorial Day Parade, Program held in Ripley BY Wayne Boblitt The Brown County Press An estimated 350 people attended the Annual Memorial Day Program held May 31 at Ripley's Maplewood Cemetery. That program concluded Memorial Day activities that began that afternoon with an Opening Program at the Liberty Monument in downtown Ripley and followed with Ripley's Annual Memorial Day Parade. The Rev. Wayne Reveal, pastor of Ripley First Presbyterian Church, opened the Liberty Monument Program by praying that those gathered would remember the sacrifices military servicemen and servicewomen made so they would be free. “May we carry the banner of freedom proudly,” the pastor mentioned in his prayer. “They (service personnel) did.” Melody Kokensparger, chairwoman of the Ripley Memorial Day Program Committee, commented how Memorial Day had become a holiday in which to honor all military service personnel, and she brought forward two Ripley-Union-LewisHuntington High School graduates who are presently serving in the military: Sgt. Josh Franklin with the U.S. Marine Corps and Infantryman Tyler Robinson with the U.S. Army. Franklin, who is stationed at Norfolk, Va., has completed two tours of duty in Iraq, and Robinson, who is stationed in Vicenza, Italy, was home for two weeks of rest and relaxation after having served in Afghanistan. The Opening Program also included an announcement of the winners of a Patriotic Decorated Bicycle Contest. Nicole Bell of Cincinnati placed first; Emily Baker and Lee Ann Ramsey,

both of Aberdeen, placed second; and Hailey Bell of Cincinnati placed third. The parade began shortly afterward led by a Color Guard from RULH High School's Junior Reserve Officers' Training Corps, which was followed by many other JROTC cadets. The parade included members of Courts-Fussnecker Post 367 of the American Legion and Post 367 Auxiliary in Ripley, Sons of the American Legion Post 367, and the Disabled American Veterans Chapter and Auxiliary in Ripley; the RULH High School marching band directed by Tim Carpenter; the Ripley Fire Department, which included a Color Guard; the Ripley Women's Club; and the Patriotic Decorated Bicycle Contest winners on their bikes. The parade paused at the Red Oak Creek Bridge in downtown Ripley for a ceremony to remember sailors and Marines who were lost at sea. Second Vice President Charlene Stein with Courts-Fussnecker American Legion Post 367 Auxiliary, threw a red wreath into Red Oak Creek in remembrance of those fallen heroes; a unit from that American Legion post fired five rifles in salute; and Tommy Jacobs, Sons of the American Legion Post 367 first vice president, played “Taps”. The parade proceeded southward along U.S. 52-62-68 to Maplewood Cemetery for the concluding program. Lt. Col. Rick Klinker, a former Marine who is senior Marine instructor with the RULH High School JROTC Program, welcomed those attending that program by saying, “Thank you for such a turnout for such a tradition.” In his opening prayer at the cemetery, Reveal mentioned

how one thing those gathered should never forget is “to remember our fallen heroes”. After the RULH High School Marching Band performed “God Bless America”, keynote speaker Gary DeFosse of the Ripley area delivered a message that included a history lesson about the United States' beginning as a nation. Klinker then invited three former RULH High School students currently serving with the military to come forward for recognition. They included Franklin; Private First Class David Burson who has served with the U.S. Army at Camp Liberty, Iraq, and was home for some rest and relaxation; and CM3 Ben Miller, a sailor serving at Naval Air Station in Lemoore, Calif., who is scheduled to leave for duty in Afghanistan in December. A ceremony to honor departed servicemen and servicewomen followed at the cemetery's Soldiers Monument. Chaplain Lillie Rice with Courts-Fussnecker Post 367 of the American Legion Auxiliary, offered a prayer and mentioned how without the sacrifices of servicemen and servicewomen who have died, those gathered that day would not have the freedoms they enjoyed. Jackie Hansen, past department commander of the Ripley DAV ChapterAuxiliary, then laid a memorial wreath at the Soldiers Monument. That was followed by a concluding gun salute fired by five members of Courts-Fussnecker Post 367 and the playing of “Taps” by Jacobs to honor the memory of American military service personnel who had laid down their lives for freedom.

About 300 people attend Decatur Ice Cream Supper An estimated 300 people attended the Annual OldFashioned Ice Cream Supper on Memorial Day in Decatur Community Park. Bill Paul, a member of the Byrd Township Community Center Committee which organized the Supper, said the May 31 social gathering was so successful the food on sale there ran out except for one of the 45 gallons of homemade ice cream. The money raised at the event goes toward the upkeep of the Byrd Township Community Center, which formerly housed the old Decatur High School on State Route 125 west of the Community Park in Decatur. The Ice Cream Supper began with the singing of “The StarSpangled Banner” by West Union resident Cecilia Moore, a 2010 West Union High School

graduate who plans to major in music this fall at Morehead State University in Morehead, Ky. Cherry Fork resident Russ Brewer then delivered a brief speech about the importance of Memorial Day. Brewer talked about how many people had gathered earlier that day to observe Memorial Day at both large cemeteries and small cemeteries such as the one found in Decatur. “Regardless of the size of the cemetery, what truly matters is that we, in fact, gather to carry on the tradition of Memorial Day as Americans have for 142 years and to remember those brave souls who gave their last full measure in service to this nation,” Brewer continued. He mentioned a sample list of battles in which American military service personnel have fought from the Battle of Lexington during the American

Many of those attending the Annual Old-Fashioned Ice Cream Supper on May 31 at Decatur Community Park wait their turn to be served a variety of flavors of refreshing homemade ice cream.

Revolutionary War to more recent battles in Iraq and Afghanistan. “And at every one of these battles – in every single one – these courageous American heroes wrote new chapters in the ongoing story of freedom,” Brewer noted. “They wrote those chapters with their lives knowing that if one single human being is bound by the chains of tyranny or injustice anywhere in the world, then freedom is truly endangered everywhere.” He said he hoped each of his listeners would commit that day to do three things: “Remember those who have paid the supreme sacrifice and given their last full measure of devotion for this great nation we live in. “Extend our appreciation to all who have sacrificed in any way to protect our freedoms. “Remember those who are presently in uniform and who stand in harm's way. Let us keep them and their families in our hearts and prayers.” Peggy Grimes of Decatur then sang “Amazing Grace” and urged her listeners to join in that well-known hymn before those gathered took their places in one

of two refreshment lines – one for several flavors of homemade ice cream and the other for such items as hot dogs, pressed chicken sandwiches, and beverages. The West Union-based Liberty Cornet Band, whose members include some Brown County residents, performed a variety of patriotic tunes, Broadway songs and other upbeat selections while those gathered enjoyed their refreshments and fellowshipped with friends. The next major social event scheduled in Decatur is the annual Decatur Day In The Park on Saturday, July 10. That oneday festival will include such activities as a 5-kilometer run, a parade, a baked goods auction, musical entertainment, cornhole, arm wrestling, and another opportunity to purchase homemade ice cream and other refreshments.

Former sports writer says thanks


Voinovich urges support for Israel During World War II, millions of families were torn apart in the wake of hatred and anti-Semitism. My own family suffered; we lost touch with my father’s Serbian relatives in Croatia, and we assumed they were killed along with thousands of Jews by the Ustase – Croatian Nazis. My family’s story and the stories of thousands of others I’ve heard throughout my career have motivated me to fight the scourge of antiSemitism and to stand up for Israel. The Jewish people have been victims of anti-Semitism for millennia, but that hate impacts all of us in the community. I was honored to participate recently in the 2010 Holocaust Days of Remembrance ceremony in the U.S. Capitol’s Rotunda, where members of Congress and community leaders joined together to remember and honor those lost during the Holocaust. Lighting a candle in memory of those brutally murdered during the Holocaust is a humbling and important act. We cannot overlook the importance of mourning the six million people who were sentenced to die six decades ago not for what they did, but for who they were. I began my activism for the Jewish community as a memof the Lawyers’ ber Committee for Soviet Jewry while a local office holder in Cleveland. As a Cuyahoga County Commissioner we raised money for English tutors to help Soviet Jewish immigrants assimilate into our community. When I became

GEORGE VOINOVICH the mayor of Cleveland, I helped organize the city’s first Anne Frank exhibit as well as the first Holocaust commemoration. I also strongly opposed our sister city relationship with the City of Volgograd, Russia due to their neglect of imprisoned Soviet Jews during the Cold War. It was my responsibility to protect the rights of my constituency, and I could not support a government that would not support its citizens. In 1985, I was named honorary director of the National Council of the Jewish Women’s Holocaust Archives Program. The program taped Holocaust survivors telling their harrowing stories of survival and loss, and I’m pleased that we have so many stories on tape to share with future generations. For my actions as Mayor, I was awarded the Tree of Life Award from the Jewish National Fund - one of the nicest things ever to happen to Janet and me. My role in the Jewish community continued to expand as Governor of Ohio. I led 14 Ohio companies on the state’s first trade mission to Israel in 1993 to further promote shared business opportunities. Under my leadership, we opened Ohio’s Middle East trade office to improve both Ohio’s communications and commerce in the region in 1996.

Since 1980, Janet and I have made nearly a dozen trips to Israel, and on each and every trip I see or learn something new that motivates me yet again to condemn antiSemitism and work to eradicate it. My visits to the Garden of the Righteous Gentiles at Yad Vashem and the Diaspora Museum were moving experiences that remain in my mind today. Janet and I have also been greatly honored by the Jewish people on our visits to Israel. The Jewish National Fund dedicated a recreational park in Israel to honor the memory of our daughter, Molly. The Molly Agnes Voinovich Memorial Forest is just 12 miles southeast of Haifa, overlooking Jezreel Valley. I was also humbled when the Negev Foundation dedicated the Agriculture Voinovich Research Center in the Negev Desert, which is pioneering agricultural advances to improve life for Israelis. I’m also proud of my work with the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) and have worked with the OSCE to prioritize eliminating this cancer of hatred before it can spread any further. The 2004 OSCE Berlin Declaration to combat anti-Semitism was a landmark moment in this battle, as the declaration proclaimed that international developments or politics can never justify antiSemitism. In 2007, the OSCE’s Office of Democratic Institutions and Human Rights backed up the Berlin Declaration with $1

million in funding to fight anti-Semitism, including establishing a director of antiSemitism. And in 2004, thenPresident George W. Bush signed into law a bill I introduced, the Global AntiSemitism Review Act, which requires the State Department to monitor and combat global anti-Semitism and report annually to Congress. Ohio and Israel share many ties that strengthen the bonds of friendship. I meet frequently with Ohioans who advocate for Israel and Jewish organizations, learning about their work and what I can do to help. I’ve also asked for the State Department’s support for a cooperative agreement between Cleveland State University and an Israeli university to create a public administrative program to teach governance in hopes of promoting peace in Palestinian territories. As I serve out my final year in the U.S. Senate I would like to thank the Jewish community, both at home and abroad, for your kindness and support throughout my time in public service. It is vital for Americans to remember that our country’s united opposition to tyranny and discrimination is woven into every stitch of fabric in our nation’s flag. Denial and ignorance costs us all. But in telling the stories of those who’ve gone before, we recognize them and learn from their sacrifices. We do this to honor those who’ve passed, and we do this for those yet to come.

Dear Editor, Looking back, I had no idea what I was getting myself into. About two and a half years ago, I walked into The Brown County Press office as nothing more than a 15 year-old with an idea. Less than a week after I had talked with then sports editor Amanda Matti, I was under the hoop taking pictures at a Fayetteville basketball game. It happened so fast, and hasn’t really slowed down since. Working here at The Press since then has been such an amazing experience for me. I’ve met so many people, and learned so many things; there’s nothing I would have rather done. My job as a sports journalist has done so much good for me, I hope to use this experience as a foundation for a career in the industry. This fall, I will attend Indiana Wesleyan University for journalism, and I feel I am so much more prepared because of my time here. But going away to college means leaving my job, one of the hardest things I’ll have to do. I’ve grown so attached to this newspaper, this town, this community; this county, and it’s because of the people in it. First of all, I owe so many thanks to the staff of The Brown County Press. Amanda Matti, editor Steve Large, and

Krista Marino graciously gave a kid a chance, and took me under their wings. Wayne Gates and Ritchie Butler were willing to keep me on staff in a time of overhaul, and for that I am very grateful. Also, several coaches have been nothing but kind to me, making this experience all the more enjoyable. Jennifer Jeff Boone-Roades, Herrmann, Doug Williams, Jerry Underwood, Heather Cooper, and Kathy Chadwell were absolutely great. I think one of the perks of being in high school while covering prep sports was that as a student at Western Brown and Southern Hills CTC, I went to school with many of the athletes I wrote about. Caitlin Burns, Nathan Robinson, Tara Balke, Whitney Plymesser, Jess Chadwell, Kyle Proffitt, and Logan Hayslip were not only great athletes, but friends as well. Thanks to my family for being supportive, and driving me to games when I didn’t have my license. Thanks to writer Gregg Doyle for being my mentor, and giving me the idea to apply for this job in the first place. And thanks to God- with whom all things are possible. Thanks for reading, and for one last time: Jeremy Sharp, The Brown County Press

Dear Editor: Nobody has more of a distrust of big government than I do, and I’ll be the first to admit it. I believe it to be intrusive and I believe it to be inept. I believe that it serves the purpose of serving itself and those career “political animals” that hide behind the guise of public servants. The only appropriate

way to slay the monster that has been created is to begin to dismantle it from the inside out, shrink the beast like you’d shrink a cancerous tumor. How? By doing everything you can to move the old blood out and put new blood in, by electing a new breed of public servant. Many people believe that I

tend to lean a bit too far toward anarchy, but such is not the case. I believe government, in a very limited form, is needed. I am also convinced of the idea that a good citizen is one who sees himself/herself as needing to participate in the establishment of a civil society and is willing to involve himself/herself in the process of leading the way toward making it happen. Thus it becomes necessary to engage in political activity, which at one time was considered an honorable thing, and I believe it can still be honorable, given the right people being elected. Ordinary people, with a vision for public service and a sense of integrity, can do extraordinary things if given an opportunity. But they need encouragement to participate. They need to be urged to take part in the process of challenging the status quo and to shake off the comments of those who would discourage their participation in the public arena. I’ve met so many over the years who have the desire to make a difference, but they feel inadequate to the task and

shy away from the challenge of “throwing their hat into the ring.” Even still, they have the potential for doing good things and making a difference in the lives of those they are willing to serve. Let’s encourage them to try their hand at running for office. (Even if they don’t win the election, they at least have the opportunity to issue a needed challenge and provoke open discussion and debate sometimes this is all you need to produce results.) I would love to see a dozen or more people come along in the next couple of years, all of them political outsiders and mavericks, who would begin to challenge those in public office at the local, state and federal levels, people totally new to the game who have nothing to lose by speaking plainly and truthfully. It would be such a breath of fresh air for the state of Ohio. I wonder if we could find any in Clermont, Brown, Adams, Highland, Pike, Warren or Scioto Counties to take the challenge? Rev. Sam Talley


Talley calls for changing of the guard

The Brown County Press - Sunday, June 6, 2010 - Page 5

CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 Jonson maintained that Gusweiler had both the authority to issue the order and to hold Meranda in contempt if she did not comply. Jonson also mentioned that the order itself was not being challenged by Meranda and that it was not even attached to the complaint. He continued by saying nothing about the question of access to Meranda’s office had changed. “He (Gusweiler) had keys before February 17th and he has them now”, Jonson said. Meranda changed the locks to her office on February 17th, which lead to the confrontation between her and Gusweiler. According to the lawsuit, Gusweiler demanded a copy of the new keys from Meranda and threatened her with arrest if she did not comply. After receiving a written order from Gusweiler requiring that she provide the keys to him, Meranda complied. Jonson also said that Meranda had failed to show

damages to support her claim of unlawful intimidation by Gusweiler. Deters responded to Jonson’s remarks by saying that the intimidation statute does not require an arrest to

qualify as statutory intimidation. He also said that Meranda had suffered damages. “She has incurred attorney’s fees as a result of the intimidation”, Deters said.

Former Mt. Orab businessman Hugh Cahall dies CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 business sometimes had four or five employees while at other times his father and his mother, Barbara Cahall, operated it by themselves. Hugh and Barbara Cahall were married for 65 years. Grant Cahall said he was a part-owner of his father's business, which closed in 2006, for many years. He recalled his father as being “a considerate, very helpful, good businessman.” Grant Cahall recalled how his father was involved in many different activities in his community and was “always involved” in his church, Mt. Orab United Methodist Church. He also was a former member of the Mt. Orab Village Council. Another activity was Wilson Sroufe Post 9772 of Veterans of Foreign Wars in Mt. Orab. Post Adjutant Gen. Rick Rhoades said Mr. Cahall, just prior to his death, was one of two remaining active charter members of that VFW post, which was founded in 1948. Rhoades mentioned how




Gusweiler, Meranda attorneys debate suit dismissal

Mr. Cahall served with the U.S. Navy during World War II and had a dangerous assignment as an armed guard on Merchant Marine ships. He talked about how Mr. Cahall was a good VFW member who attended every Post 9772 Memorial Day Parade and Program including the one in 2009. Rhoades said Mr. Cahall wore the same uniform while participating for many years but bought another uniform, one which was all white, three or four years ago. Asked if Post 9772 members were going to miss Mr. Cahall, Rhoades commented, “There is no question about it.” Scott Township resident Carroll Wallace, a former grocery store owner in Mt. Orab, knew Mr. Cahall through different avenues. Wallace said his father opened a grocery store in space next door to and north of Mr. Cahall's clothing store in the 100 Block of North High Street in Mt. Orab. He mentioned how Mr. Cahall was a charter member of the Mt. Orab Lions Club

and how they were members of that club together for about 30 years. Wallace also said Mr. Cahall and he sang together in a barbershop quartet and also in the Mt. Orab UMC choir. Saying Mr. Cahall had been his friend for a long time, Wallace described him as a “great community and family man” and a “straight shooter” who was “as honest as he could be”. “He loved his church, and he was an all-around good guy,” Wallace recalled. Greenbush resident Jim Wylie attended the same church as Mr. Cahall and was active with him in Gideons International, a Christian layman's organization that distributes Bibles. Asked to describe his late friend, Wylie said of Mr. Cahall, “I'd say he was a gentleman's gentleman. He had a warm handshake and a friendly smile. He was a man of Jesus.” A full obituary for Mr. Cahall is on page 7 of today's edition of The Brown County Press.

Deters also said that, by law, the Clerk of Courts is the guardian of the court records and had the responsibility to safeguard them. Deters continued, raising the point that Meranda was threatened with contempt in a “heavy handed manner” and the threat was made without a hearing. Meranda has asked for monetary damages from Gusweiler and is seeking a court order that would prohibit him from “interfering with her power and duties” as Brown County Clerk of Courts.

Man indicted for allegedly vandalizing sprinkler at jail BY Wayne Boblitt The Brown County Press A Brown County grand jury has indicted two Georgetown men on breaking and entering counts following their May 16 arrests by Georgetown police

with the assistance of some residents of that village. The grand jury also indicted a Peebles man for vandalism and inducing panic after he allegedly damaged a sprinkler head in the Brown County Adult Detention Center in Georgetown on April 26. Those three men are among 14 individuals the grand jury indicted on 27 felony and misdemeanor counts for alleged

crimes committed in Brown County. • James Sizemore Jr., 38, and Joshua Purdin, 23, both of Georgetown, were indicted in separate indictments on two counts each of breaking and entering and one count each of possession of criminal tools, all of which are fifth-degree felonies. Sizemore and Purdin allegedly on or about May 16 tres-

passed by force, stealth or deception in unoccupied Georgetown businesses belonging to Tony Applegate on Mt. Orab Pike and Jane Lightner on North Elm Street. Georgetown Police Chief Forrest “Buddy” Coburn talked about those breaking and entering incidents at the Georgetown Village Council meeting on May 27. Coburn reported an alert Georgetown citizen, who wished to remain unnamed, saw three male subjects acting suspiciously at about 4:20 a.m. on May 16 at Applegate's Car Wash on Mt. Orab Pike. That citizen called the Brown County Communication Center in Georgetown, and two Georgetown police officers responded toward the scene. One of those officers observed three male subjects running at the intersection of Apple and North streets, and when he approached them, they ran eastbound on North Street. Another Georgetown resident alerted police she had seen three men run into some bushes, and the pursuing police officer allegedly discovered those subjects afterward in a sewer drain. He ordered those subjects out of that drain at gunpoint as another officer arrived to back him up, according to Coburn. The Georgetown police chief identified the men as being Sizemore, Purdin and a 17-yearold juvenile. The chief said when a breakin was discovered on May 18 at The Hair Pro's at 410 N. Elm St., owner Lightner advised police she had closed shop on May 15 and had returned to open it May 18. Sizemore, Purdin and the juvenile suspect, when questioned about the breaking and entering in at that business, allegedly gave complete confessions to their involvement. Regarding the criminal tools count, Sizemore and Purdin allegedly on or about May 16 possessed or had under their control two pry bars and gloves with the purpose of using them criminally, and circumstances indicated those tools were intended for use in the commission of a felony. • Willard Lowe, 37, of Peebles, was indicted on one count each of vandalism and inducing panic, each of which is a fifth-degree felony. Lowe allegedly on or about this past April 26 knowingly caused serious physical harm to a fire system sprinkler head at the Brown County Adult Detention Center in Georgetown. He also allegedly on or about that same date caused serious public inconvenience or alarm by committing vandalism with reckless disregard of the likelihood that offense's commission would cause serious public inconvenience or alarm. That alleged violation also resulted in reported economic harm of $500 to $5,000. In a June 2 telephone interview, Brown County Prosecuting Attorney Jessica Little said Lowe's alleged vandalism to the sprinkler head caused sprinklers to go off and release “nasty water” in the Brown County Adult Detention Center's Day Room for inmates, creating a risk regarding the securing of those inmates. • Bruce E. Chapman, 53, of Peebles, was indicted on one count of illegal conveyance of drugs into a detention facility, a

third-degree felony. Bruce Chapman allegedly on or about this past Feb. 12 knowingly conveyed or attempted to convey a drug of abuse identified as being Lorcet (Hydrocodone), a Schedule III controlled substance, onto the grounds of the Brown County Adult Detention Center. • Holly A. Woods, 36, of Mt. Orab, was indicted on one count each of aggravated trafficking in drugs with a specification, a third-degree felony, and possession of drugs, a fifth-degree felony. Woods allegedly on or about Dec. 9, 2009, knowingly sold or offered to sell morphine, a Schedule II controlled substance, and also on or about that same date knowingly obtained, possessed, or used morphine. • Elizabeth Jones, 32, address unknown, was indicted on one count each of aggravated possession of drugs, a third-degree felony, and theft of drugs, a fourth-degree felony, and two counts each of endangering children, a first-degree misdemeanor. Jones allegedly on or about Nov. 23, 2009, knowingly obtained, possessed, or used morphine, and the amount allegedly involved was 30 doses or more, equalling or exceeding the bulk amount but being less than five times that amount. She also allegedly on or about that date knowingly obtained and exerted control over morphine belonging to an identified victim with the purpose of depriving him of that drug. Jones also allegedly on or about that same date operated a vehicle, streetcar, or trackless trolley under the influence of alcohol or drugs when two children younger than 18, identified only by their initials, were in that vehicle. • Russell G. Walker, 45, of Winchester, was indicted on one count of operating a vehicle under the influence with a specification, a fourth-degree felony. Walker allegedly on or about this past May 23 operated a vehicle while he was under the influence of alcohol, a drug of abuse, or a combination of them, and had within six years of that alleged offense been convicted of or pleaded guilty in Brown County Municipal Court to three or four violations of that offense or other equivalent offenses. They included four OVI convictions in that court on Nov. 29, 2004. Grand jurors also stated they had found and specified Walker within 20 years of committing his alleged offense had been convicted of or pleaded guilty to five or more equivalent offenses. They included the four OVI convictions in Brown County Municipal Court on Nov. 29, 2004, and a driving under the influence conviction in Hamilton County Municipal Court on Oct. 26, 1992. • Terry Mays, 38, of Mt. Orab, was indicted on one count of theft from an elderly person or disabled adult, a fourthdegree felony. Mays allegedly on or about this past April 7 knowingly deprived an identified elderly person or disabled adult of $500 to $5,000 worth of currency. • Michael Pryor, 25, of Mt. Orab, and Paul L. Chapman, 25, of Bethel, were indicted in separate indictments on one count each of breaking and entering and theft, both of which are fifth-degree felonies. • Jamie Downing, 27, of

Georgetown, was indicted on one count each of breaking and entering and possession of criminal tools, both of which are fifth-degree felonies. Downing allegedly on or about this past May 8 trespassed by force, stealth or deception in a vacant house with the purpose of committing a theft offense therein. • Roy W. Hill Jr. , 20, of Lecanto, Fla., was indicted on one count each of breaking and entering with a specification and possessing criminal tools with a specification, each of which is a fifth-degree felony. Hill allegedly on or about this past April 27 trespassed by force, stealth or deception in an unoccupied warehouse with the purpose of committing a theft offense therein. • Kenneth E. Osborne, 50, of Mt. Orab, was indicted on one count of trafficking in marijuana, a fifth-degree felony. Osborne allegedly on or about this past Jan. 7 knowingly sold or offered to sell marijuana, a Schedule I controlled substance. • William L. Colston, 46, of Georgetown, was indicted on one count of unlawful possession of a dangerous ordnance, a fifth-degree felony. Colston allegedly on or about this past May 12 knowingly acquired, had, carried or used a dangerous ordnance, which was identified as being a sawed-off shotgun. An indictment means a grand jury found that enough evidence exists that an accused person likely committed the crime(s) with which he or she is charged. An indictment by itself, however, does not mean the person is guilty of a specific crime or crimes or that he or she actually committed a specific crime or crimes.

REASONS FOR VIEWING BODY The funeral with the body present is not an American phenomenon. This practice has existed since time immemorial. There are many valid reasons why this practice has continued. When someone dies, a life on earth ends. What remains is the body of a man, woman, or child who once was loved and who loved in return. When we remember that person we often think of them in terms of their physical being - their body. The presence of the body at the funeral provides the opportunity for recall and reminiscence. It offers testimony and tribute to the life that has been lived. In a psychological sense, it provides reinforcement of the reality of the passing. In most events and ceremonies there is a meaningful symbol or person upon which to focus our

attention. At the funeral, it is customarily the body of the person who died. For many people in many societies there is no adequate substitute.

A FOOL In Matthew 5:22 it tells us to call no man a fool. We do not have that right but God does. Look with me in the 14th Psalm verse 1: “The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God...” He may say it out loud or he may not. He may have professed one thing but believed another. Sometimes they just act or live like there is no God. They act like everything depends on them and they can do whatever they want to do without consequences. They are out for everything they can get and don’t care who they walk over to get it. They do not have to say it with their tongue; they just believe it in their heart. God calls the person who does not believe in Him a fool. I believe this whole chapter is more geared toward this generation than it was for the generations of the Old Testament. I believe this because of verse seven. “Oh that the salvation of Israel were come out of Zion!...” Israel is now back in the land and they need to be rescued; they need help. That help is not going to come from Washington, Paris, or London. That help is going to come out of Zion. Until that happens there will be no help. We have been working with Israel for 60 years and we haven’t really succeeded in helping them yet. Ladies and gentlemen, we are getting closer to the time when that help is going to come from Zion. The Bible tells us to pray for Jerusalem and to watch when you see Jerusalem surrounded with armies. And not only that but this generation of people, more than any other generation, is living like there is no God. As a people, not just this nation, our whole attitude toward God has changed. Therefore, God said: “...Corrupt are they, and have done abominable iniquity: there is none that doeth good.” Verse 2: “God looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and did seek God.” God looks for people who have enough understanding of God to seek Him. In other words He looks for people who are looking for Him. And this is what He finds: “Every one of them is gone back: they are altogether become filthy; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.” Isaiah 64:6 tells us that: “...all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags..” I wasn’t seeking after God. I never did seek God

DR. CHARLES SMITH MT. ORAB BIBLE BAPTIST CHURCH but God sought after me. In John 6:44 Jesus tells us: “No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him...” God the Father sought me and He drew me to Jesus. God is not willing for any to perish. When He looks down and sees that no one is seeking after Him then He seeks after them. Sometimes it takes a lot to catch our attention. He gets some of us to turn around but others refuse to do the turning. You see, He leaves the final choice up to us. If you are not saved God is seeking you today. He wants you to turn around and when you do you will find Him there waiting for you. He is not hard to find. Look with me in II Chronicles 15. The prophet Azariah is speaking to King Asa. “...Hear ye me, Asa, and all Judah and Benjamin; The Lord is with you, while ye be with him; and if ye seek him, he will be found of you; but if ye forsake him, he will forsake you.” If you keep on forsaking God, He will forsake you! You will end up in Hell unless you receive Christ as your Saviour. God will not always strive with man. It amazes me that a cat can find it’s way 1300 miles across this country to find it’s home but a human being, with all of our intelligence, cannot find God. Is a cat more intelligent than we are? God wants us to come back to Him. James 4:8 tells us: “Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you.” If a cat can turn back to seek it’s master, why can’t we turn back to seek our Master, our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ? Jesus said: “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” He is inviting you, what will you do with His invitation?

Georgetown’s Adamson wins Troy regional in shot put event By Ritchie Butler The Brown County Press


Georgetown freshman, Jess Adamson, won the regional meet at Troy with a shot put heave of 50 feet, four inches, qualifying him for the state track and field meet in Columbus. “I feel relieved,” said Adamson. “I was nervous and had a lot of people pulling for me.” Adamson, who just seriously took up the event during his eighth-grade year, has improved and progressed PHOTO COMPLIMENTS OF KRISTY LUCAS

Georgetown’s Jess Adamson qualified for the state track and field meet by winning the Troy regional in the shot put event.

throughout the season. “At the beginning of the year I was going against guys with a lot of experience,” said Adamson. “Toward the end of the year I realized that I could compete.” The young G-Man is ranked seventh in the nation and second in Ohio for all freshman shot put throwers. In preparation for the state meet, Adamson is trying to keep things business as usual. “I have a three-day break in between workouts and the competition,” said Adamson. “Mentally, I am trying to think positively. I will try my best and treat this like any other competition, although I know it’s not.” The first-time state qualifier has a couple of goals for Friday’s event.

“I would like to get a new personal record,” added Adamson. “I also want to relax when I’m in the ring.” Adamson is not built like most of his competitors at the state meet. He is not six feet, six inches. “I am at a disadvantage because of my height,” said Adamson. “The other guys throw the shot put higher. I have to have better technique and be quicker with the shot.” Adamson resides in Georgetown, very close to the school. “It makes it easier to get to practice and work on things,” added Adamson. “We are actually putting a toe-board in at the house.” Adamson is the son of Steve and Rebecca Adamson. “I want to thank God and

my parents,” said Adamson. “I have been spoiled by them. I realize the effort and the money they have spent this year.” Adamson also has two older siblings, brother Zach and sister Ashley. “They are older and don’t live with us anymore,” added Adamson. “Zach is getting ready for his second trip to Iraq. But he will be there Friday, so I am glad he’ll get to come watch.” After the state meet, Adamson plans on weightlifting and attending some throwing camps this summer. “I have a friend who throws for Ashland College (Kurt Roberts) who says something that means a lot to me, ‘Every day is a shot put day’,” added Adamson.

Western’s Tudor returns to Ohio Track and Field Meet in discus By Ritchie Butler The Brown County Press Western sophomore Mack Tudor is set for a return trip to the Ohio State Track and Field Championships. “Last year I had some freshman nerves coming in as the 15th seed,” said Tudor. “Hopefully, this year coming in as the 12th seed, I will have a good day. I hope to get on

the podium. That would be awesome. My goal is to make the top eight and work my way up from there.” Tudor finished third at the regional meet in Dayton with a discus throw of 154 feet, eight inches. His personal record is 166 feet, one inch, which he set at the Milford Invitational earlier this year. “I had a bad day at regionals,” said Tudor. “All but one

of my throws were fouls. I had a lot of nerves last week. Since I’ve been to the state, people kind of expect you to make it again.” Tudor, who is ranked seventh nationally for all sophomores, does not take all the credit for his success. “My parents are very excited for me, especially my mom,” added Tudor. “They have always supported me and

say ‘yes’ to anywhere I want to go for track.” “I want to thank Mr. Cook and my coaches for all their help and support. The fundraisers have helped me get the track supplies I need.” “I also want to thank Josh Fishback for all his help.” Fishback, a graduate of Clermont Northeastern who threw for the University of cincinnati, is Tudor’s technical coach. Tudor also would like to thank the teachers at Western for their support, especially his English teacher, Kim Harmon. “She has been very inspirational and supportive,” said Tudor. “She threw in college and she has come out to watch and support me.” Tudor’s future plans include focusing on track and going to college. “I’d love to extend my career to college and maybe the olympics,” said Tudor. “I just have to take it one step at a time.” Tudor’s summer plans include participating in the Youth National

By Ritchie Butler The Brown County Press Mark Williams, a 2007 graduate of Fayetteville High School, is heading for the New England Collegiate Baseball League this summer. “I am looking forward to seeing better baseball,” said Williams. “There will be bet-

ter pitchers and hitters. Ninety-five percent of the players are from Division I programs.” Williams, who recently completed his junior year at Marietta, has enjoyed success this season. Marietta finished the year ranked 17th in the nation. The Express were runners-up in their conference,

conference tournament and regional, ending the season with an overall mark of 37-13. Williams had a record of 6-4 on the mound, with an ERA of 4.20. He also had three saves this year. Williams is not new to summer play. He spent last year playing for the Chillicothe Paints in the Prospect League.

Fayetteville graduate, Mark Williams, was invited to pitch in the New England Collegiate Baseball League this summer. The Marietta junior will hurl for the North Shore Navigators.

“This league (NECBL) is the third toughest league of its kind,” said Williams. “Being from a small town, this is huge for me to go to a place like that. Hopefully, I’ll get recognition that will lead to the next level.” Williams will be pitching for the North Shore Navigators this summer and will be residing in Lynn, Massachusetts with the James Coffey family. The season begins June 6, and runs until July 31. During that time, Williams will be working some baseball camps at Boston College. “I am set up to work camps at B.C. this summer to help pay the bills,” added Williams. “Camps begin June 8.” Williams anticipates filling the role of closer while with the Navigators, but added that he might see some spot starts. “I’ve worked on being a closer, especially through the final weeks of the season at Marietta,” said Williams. Outside the lines, Williams is looking forward to taking in the sites during his time in the northeast. “I really want to go to a Red Sox game,” said Williams. “I am a big fan of Kevin Youkilis (a Sycamore graduate) and the Red Sox.” Williams’ future looks bright as he embarks on this opportunity. “I am happy and ready to go,” said Williams. “There is a possibility I’ll get drafted and playing there this summer may help. I have had contact with some Major League Baseball organizations.” Williams is the son of Mark and Denise Williams, who still reside in Fayetteville. His brother, Tanner, attends Fayetteville High School.

Another night of hot racing action at Moler Raceway Park started with the Sunesis Construction Late Model Division on the track for heatrace action and it was Barry Doss and John Whitney taking the wins, setting up the starting line-up for the 25-lap feature event. In the feature event, it was Doss out front, but Rick Combs and Jason Jamison were right behind him. On lap 8, Combs slipped by Doss to take the lead in traffic while Jamison spent the next eight laps trying to follow suit. Jamison was finally able to get by Doss and set sail for

Combs, but to no avail, as the A Hines Racing Engine Machine of Combs claimed his first feature win of the season. Jamison’s streak of fourstraight wins was snapped as he came home a close second following a lap 20 caution. Third place finish went to Larry Pickelheimer, Jr., followed by a hard-charging Tim Prince and Chad Stapleton. In the Mt. Orab Ford UMP Modifieds, it was another fine field of cars on hand as 29 drivers signed in to take a chance at winning the event. In heat race action, it was Brandon Webber, Joe Godsey and Matt Hamilton taking heat wins with Derick Davis claiming the B-main event. In the feature event, it was Hamilton out front, but a rollover accident by D.J. Latham brought out the red flag after one lap. By lap 6, it was Devin Gilpin taking the top spot and setting sail on the field. Godsey and Dave McWilliams waged a battle for the second spot most of the race, but no one had anything for “Kid Dasco,” who is number one in UMP Points across the nation and proved how he got there as the Dasco Racing Supply, Impressive Race Chassis, Eddie Gilstrap machine was not going to be beat on this night. Gilpin claimed his second feature win of the season at MRP, while McWilliams and Weasel Rhodes got past Godsey on the final lap to take second and third positions, while Godsey and Randy Wash completed the top five. In the Holman Motors Chevette division, there was another fine field of cars on hand. Less Romano, Jeff Watson and Miles Tarvin claimed heat-race wins and set up the feature lineup. At the green flag, it was Watson out front with Tarvin in tow. At the midpoint of the race, it looked like Tarvin might challenge Watson for the top spot, but Watson went on to claim his fourth feature win of the season in his Harmony Salon, Rod to Wrenches, Triple C Powersports, LTI Carburetors sponsored machine. Tarvin came home second with Sean Jones, Brandon Elam and Romano rounding out the top five. The US Race Gear Street Stocks once again rounded out the night’s activities. Following heat wins by Benji Dean and Jeremy Scott, the 12-car field was set for the

feature event. At the green, it was Scott out front, but for the first seven laps he was challenged closely by Dean. Scott started to pull away and Dean had his hands full keeping Jeremie Bretz behind him. On the final lap, Mark Kaetzel slowed off of turn 2, and Chad Minnie and Dean made hard contact with the stopped machine, bringing a red flag out and setting a one-lap shootout to finish the event. At the green, Bretz was no match for Scott and the Manchester, Ohio native claimed his first MRP victory in his H&S Poured Walls, Maysville Ready Mix, Morgan Plumbing and Excavating sponsored car. Bill Crabtree came home third, followed by Dave Kirker and Scott Hess.

After Ruby's wife picked him up at the police station about 3 a.m., he came back there about an hour later and fired at Conley, who was walking to his cruiser, with a .38 special. The bullet struck Conley in his bullet-resistant vest about an inch from the bottom. Mount had reported Conley ran for cover across the parking lot, hit the ground behind the flagpole and began returning fire. Hodges, who was in the police station, heard the gunfire and rushed to help, but as he approached the door, Ruby tried to enter the building with a gun, Mount had reported. Ruby subsequently gunfire with exchanged Hodges, and a glass door at the Mt. Orab Municipal Building,

Orab where he was pronounced dead while Conley, who Mount reported had a fistsized bruise on his back, was treated at Mercy Medical Center Mt. Orab and released. Lunsford presented Conley and Hodges each with a Medal of Valor. Mentioning how both officers went beyond the call of duty and went into harm's way to save each other, Mount commented how “they certainly earned these medals”. Lunsford also presented a Purple Heart medal to Conley in recognition of his being wound-

wear that scar from that night's assault. Lunsford commented to all the police officers in attendance, some of whom received no special recognition or promotion that night, “The council appreciates everybody being here and the job you do.” State Rep. Danny Bubp attended that night's Recognition Ceremony and mentioned how he had attended the same high school as Troy Conley, Justin Conley's father (Eastern Local High School). Bubp praised the officers involved in the Jan. 3 shooting for being prepared on their jobs. “It's a dangerous world out there.” The state representative also thanked Lunsford for taking time to recognize the Mt.

The Brown County Soil and Water Conservation District’s monthly meeting was held on May 19, 2010 at 7 a.m. at the District office in Georgetown. The Board of Supervisors and staff would like to thank the Brown County Board of Commissioners for attending the meeting. Their continued support through the many years of tough budget times is appreciated more than words can express. After the meeting this morning I decided to start sharing with the public some of the information that the staff members list in their monthly board reports. I hope this bit of news will give the public a better understanding of the importance of the role the Conservation District plays in Brown County. The District currently has two full-time employees, each working 40 hours per week and two employees working 8 (eight) hours each per week. A few years ago there were 5 (five) full-time employees. Chris Rogers has been with the District for 17 years. His

current role is District Administrator and Technician. He is a wealth of knowledge and I honestly just don’t know how much more his brain can hold! His report reflected his presence on the Brown County Subdivision Review Committee, attendance at the Brown County Planning Commission Meetings, attendance at the Countywide Sewer Team Meetings, of which he is a member, and attendance at the Pleasant Township Trustees Meeting. He also provided Technical Assistance for the Clean Ohio Farmland Preservation Program, four USDA Farmbill Programs, White Oak Creek Watershed Project; Soil and Water Quality Project, and the Division of Wildlife Livestock Exclusion Fence Program. In addition to the Technical Assistance and service to numerous individuals, he was responsible for many Administrative duties; among which were budget, internal audit and grants.

Ohio State Treasurer Kevin Boyce learned a lot about Brown County during a recent visit he made to this part of the Buckeye State, and Brown County Democrats learned much about Boyce as well. Boyce was the keynote speaker at the Brown County Democratic Spring Dinner held April 17 at Southern Hills Career and Technical Center in Georgetown. Brown County Democrat Central Committee Chairman Dallas Hurt arranged for Boyce to receive a tour earlier that day of the new Kroger Marketplace supermarket in Mt. Orab that hadn’t opened yet. Boyce mentioned to the Kroger managers who gave him that tour how he had worked at a Kroger store during his younger days. Hurt and Mike Woodford, a Democrat from Union Township, also gave Boyce a tour of some historic sites in Southern Brown County such as the John Rankin House in

Republican Party challenger Josh Mandel, an Ohio state representative, this fall. Margery Paeltz, who is president of the Brown Board of County Commissioners, introduced Boyce and said Brown County Democrats were honored to have him as their speaker that night. “We know our treasurer has a busy schedule.” Boyce said Brown County was an “amazing county” with “amazing people” and mentioned how he had seen some of the county’s rich history earlier that day, adding the entire state has a lot of rich history as well. He talked about how he was born and raised in Columbus, commenting, “When you grow up there, you don’t have a chance to get out much and see parts of rural Ohio.” Boyce elicited some laughter when he talked about how it was “quite an experience” when he milked a cow for the first time, mentioning how he and that cow “bonded in a way you couldn’t understand”. Boyce said he is seeing a

belief among Ohioans as he travels that everyone in Ohio together can overcome the challenges facing the state. He mentioned how Ohio has lost 300,000 manufacturing jobs since 2000. “No doubt you felt it in your community,” he told his listeners. Boyce talked about the challenges of his job and said the state treasury “didn’t lose one single penny” in 2009. He said he was able to increase Ohio’s state portfolio by watching the markets and said one of the treasurer’s roles was to hold some state money in assets and trusts. He also said he was able to reduce the fees charged by banks and investment firms to the state to invest its funds. Party Thanks Many Unions Toward the conclusion of the dinner, Paeltz presented a plaque to Brown County Democrat Central Committee Treasurer John Carroll representing thanks from the county’s Democrats to the unions who helped construct that party’s Headquarters Building

Ripley. Boyce later mentioned in his speech he felt chills as he viewed the house of Rankin, a Presbyterian minister and abolitionist who stood up at a time that would “test one’s soul”. He noted Rankin had moved to Ohio from Tennessee, which was a Slave State, and began preaching about freeing slaves. Boyce Appointed To Job Ohio Governor Ted Strickland appointed Boyce, an eight-year Columbus City Council member, as state treasurer in December 2008 to replace Richard Cordray, who had resigned that position to which he was elected in 2006. Cordray became Ohio attorney general after winning a Special Election for that position in November 2008. Boyce, who took office as Ohio’s treasurer in January 2009, is the Democratic Party nominee for state treasurer in the 2010 General Election on Tuesday, Nov. 2.

Attorney General conducts statewide sweep against shoddy workmanship and failure to deliver As Ohio consumers begin to make springtime repairs to their homes, Attorney General Richard Cordray today sent a stern message to home improvement contractors who defraud Ohioans. Concluding a statewide law enforcement sweep, Cordray announced charges, and in some cases judgments, against eight Ohio companies accused of swindling consumers. "My office receives thousands of complaints annually from consumers who receive poor service from home improvement contractors," said Cordray. "As a result, this spring we took a hard-line approach to cleaning up the industry in Ohio. The contractors named in today's sweep defrauded Ohioans out of tens of thousands of dollars. Their fraudulent actions cast an undeserved shadow over the many hard-working, reputable companies that play by the rules. Moving forward, we will continue to closely monitor the industry to ensure a level playing field for those businesses that provide solid

service to Ohio consumers." Cordray announced lawsuits and some default judgments against the following companies for violations of Ohio's Consumer Sales Practices Act (CSPA): • Anthony Otworth d.b.a. Custom Touch Remodel, based in Galloway. • Backyard Oasis/Royal Spa, located in Lewis Center. • Bob Brown d.b.a. Brown & Brown Roofing and Bob Brown Roofing. • Hometown Improvement, Inc., based in Columbus. • Kyle Wiehoff d.b.a C&W Concrete, located in Columbus. • Premier Design Consultants Inc., located in Columbus. • Scott Goodin Heating and Cooling, located in Cincinnati. • Shawn Fleming Snowplowing and Shawn Fleming Roofing.

How often have you been at a garden center and seen a new plant you just had to have, only to bring it home and find that it won’t work for the spot you had bought it? Reading the label first saves you time, money, and energy. The plant label lists light and water usage, bloom time, spacing, growth rate, cold hardiness, when to prune if needed, and planting instructions. It can also state if the plant is drought tolerant or deer resistant. Different plants need varying amounts of sunlight for optimal growth. Full sun means at least six or more hours of full sunlight. Part shade refers to one-half day of sun, such as morning sun and afternoon shade. It also refers to lightly filtered sun through high tree branches. Shade is minimal direct sun exposure, usually less than one and a half hours. This would include north-facing beds shaded by structures. There are perennials, annuals, and bulbs that will grow in each of these situations. Young and newly planted transplants need to be watered more frequently than mature, established plants. Keep soil moist to a depth of four to five

inches. If rainfall does not provide this moisture, apply water at a rate of one inch per week. A two-inch layer of mulch that does not touch the crown of the plant will help conserve moisture. Established perennials can usually be maintained with just rainfall except for extended drought conditions. Spacing requirements on the plant label help determine how many plants would be needed for a specified size area. This is especially helpful for planting perennials. It is sometimes tempting to plant them closer than specified, but remember this spacing is based on the mature width of the plants. If planted too close, you may have to move the plant next year if it gets too big for its space. You can always plant annuals to fill in the space till the perennial matures. Hardiness zones are listed on perennials and hardy bulbs. Here in southwestern Ohio, we are in Zone 6. So plants should be selected for Zone 6 or below. A plant above Zone 6 should be treated as an annual. Finally, follow the planting instruction regarding size of hole to dig. Transplants should be at the same soil level as in the container. If organic matter is used to improve drainage and aeration, a general rule is to add one part organic matter to three parts native soil.

ODH announces new heirloom birth certificate styles Proceeds to benefit the Ohio Family and Children First Initiative The Ohio Department of Health (ODH) today announced the availability of three new heirloom birth certificates available for purchase through the ODH office of vital statistics. Heirloom birth certificates can commemorate a recent birth, celebrate a special birthday or be passed along from generation to generation as a family keepsake. “Ohioans told ODH that they wanted additional options to choose from when ordering an heirloom birth certificate,” said ODH Director Alvin D. Jackson, M.D. “In response to this valuable public input, I am proud to announce three new heirloom birth certificate designs.” Ohioans can now choose from the native Ohioan design which honors the birth of Buckeyes, the newborn footprint design that offers space to capture the footprints of child or the more traditional statehouse lawn design. In addition to these new designs, the commemorative design, which highlights achievements of famous Ohioans, is still available. The proceeds from the sale of heirloom birth certificates benefit the Ohio Family and Children First initiative (FCF), which is working to ensure that all children thrive and succeed within healthy communities. For more information about FCF visit Each heirloom birth certificate costs $25.00 and is printed on 8.5 by 11 inch high quality paper with a raised

seal, which allows them to be used for official business in addition to display. To view the heirloom birth certificate designs or to download the application to request an heirloom birth certificate, visit and click on vital statistics.

Hamersville second graders learn about Japanese culture Recently, Hamersville second grade students were rewarded for good behavior for the month of April with a presentation about Japan from Ms. Jeanne Brown. Ms. Brown currently works with students at Hamersville School to improve their reading, but several years ago she moved to Japan to teach English to students ages 4-84 as a part of the Berlitz Company. She discussed with the second graders many Japanese holidays including New Year's, Constitution Day, In-Between Day, and Children's Day. The students learned about traveling with passports, obtaining an Alien Card, moving about the city on trains, shopping for groceries daily, schooling, and living in a Japanese home. Ms. Brown had quite a collection of items to share with the students including: tissue covers with advertisements, fans, coin money, parasols, chopsticks, toys, and pictures. The second grade teachers would like to thank Ms. Brown for an excellent presentation!!!

On Saturday, May 15th the FFA held their 35th Annual Banquet. Many members, parents, and guests were invited to eat the meal prepared by Lake Manor Catering.

Robinson leads summer break tour for Baldwin-Wallace College Samantha Robinson, Mount Orab recently led an Alternative Summer Break Trip through BaldwinWallace (B-W) College’s Office of Community Outreach. The trip to Lewes, Delaware focused on environmental issues and the students involved served at park/cape-henlopen/"Camp Henlopen State Park, part of the Delaware State Park. Robinson, daughter of Mark and Jan Robinson, is a senior at B-W majoring in political science. She is a resident assistant, a weekly program coordinator for the Office of Community

Outreach at B-W, and works in the political science department office. “In planning this trip,” said Robinson, “I chose Cape Henlopen State Park in Delaware because it seemed to offer a great deal of meaningful service as well as many opportunities to explore the historic towns, the rich World War II history and the history of the park. It was an amazing experience, and I am so glad that I had the chance to lead a trip such as this one. Robinson is a 2007 graduate of Western Brown High School. The Brown County Press would like to congratulate Samantha Robinson.

Former SHCTC graduate encourages students to aim high The top five Cosmetology seniors at Southern Hills Career & Technical Center were recently inspired by former student Hailei Call (2007), currently a junior pursuing her dreams at the University of Cincinnati’s CollegeConservatory of Music (CCM). The field trip’s itinerary included a tour of CCM during which students were VIP guests of the back stage set design area, design room where costumes are made, make up room, and wig design areas. Before she began the detail of the wig making, Hailei shared with the students her college classmates’ experience of researching the time period on which they were working. The “fronting” of a wig takes hours; however, this technique creates the very natural look. Hailei stressed the many things she has applied from her educational experience at SHCTC such as theory of color, styling and design.

enrollment and student services. The maximum benefit in the bill allows every eligible veteran and service member, active, guard, and reserve, the opportunity to receive a fully funded undergraduate education at any state college or university anywhere in the United States or its territories. "I’m really excited to be able to provide focused support for all veterans on campus, as well as those veterans in the community looking to further their education at UC Clermont College. As a Vietnam veteran who utilized the GI Bill and other veteran benefits to get my degrees, I know well the need for a knowledgeable central point of contact to deal with the transition from military status to civilian student and deal with the VA. I’m also looking forward to establishing a Student Veteran Organization here at Clermont to provide vets with the camaraderie that is essential," said Bosworth. After serving in the U.S. Navy from 1968 to 1972, Bosworth earned a bachelor of science in public communications and journalism from the S.I. Newhouse School at Syracuse University. He then entered the corporate world and held various positions in information technology development, management and training for more than 30 years. During this time, he drilled with the U.S. Navy Reserve in Columbus and honorably retired in 2000, with 28 years of service. He has taught a variety of computer information systems courses at UC Clermont as an adjunct instructor. Bosworth achieved the rank of Senior Chief Sonar Technician. During active duty, he served two tours of combat escort duty in Vietnam (197072) aboard the USS Knox (DE/FF1052), home ported Pearl Harbor, HI. In the last six years of his reserve career he was the acting Command Master Chief - the senior enlisted liaison between the commanding officer and the local reservist community - at U.S. Navy and Marine Corps Reserve Center in Columbus. He managed the completion of

UC Clermont College has created a new position to serve veterans, naming Jeff Bosworth as the academic director of veteran affairs. The Post-9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2008 or the new GI Bill has been hailed as the most extensive educational assistance program for veterans since the original GI Bill was signed into law in 1944. Colleges around the country are expecting an influx in enrollment by vets. “It would seem fitting that we create a new position to support veterans who have served their country as they come home and re-train for civilian life,” said Ann Appleton associate dean of

Ohioans can cast a ballot at one of 36 historic sites and museums around the state.

conducted June 14-18. Students entering grades 4, 5, and 6 next school term will spend a week learning more about our rich local history at the John P. Parker Historic Site in Ripley. They will join John Parker on his daring adventures to help others to enjoy freedom, and from the banks of the Ohio River they will learn more about how this great inland waterway shaped the life of our region and much more because history comes alive when you visit a place where it happened! What is most important, however, students will leave camp with a pretty good conception of the writing and teaching of history. The camp, according to Peggy Warner, director, will run from 9 a.m.-12 p.m. and boys and girls who did not register at their school could bring a permission note from their parents to enroll. The camp has become a prominent summer learning opportunity for elementary school pupils. For more information contact Peggy Mills Warner at (513) 205-2622 or

Round bales for sale in Brown County As we get a good start on rolling up some hay after a little delay due to the wetter than normal May in the Ohio Valley, the questions have already started coming in about how much are “large round bales” worth? How can I answer that? What is a “large round bale” by definition? Regardless if it is the local classifieds, agricultural publications or local radio call-in buy and sell, you often see or hear the advertisement as just that, large round bales for sale, so let’s see what we know about large round bales. First of all a large round bale could be defined, as far as dimensions are concerned, as any of the following sizes, if you check with farm machinery dealerships literature on balers. These of course are expressed in approximate feet: 4 x 4, 4 x 5, 4 x 6, 5 x 4, 5 x 5, and 5 x 6. Six different sizes of bales that all would be classified as a large round bale. If you look further into the literature you will find that the approximate weight for bales in each of the mentioned dimensions are also listed, or at least a range. If you compare the weights you will find that there are some big differences in what a large round bale is. You can argue the weights, but they are all estimated by the same people, so for comparison, they should be good. The 4 x 4 bale will average maybe in the neighborhood of 700 pounds, but this depends on the type of hay put in the bale, too. Finer hay like second cutting orchardgrass or alfalfa will have more hay that long stem first cutting grass hay. This will be the same for all sizes of large round bales. So, a 4 x 4 bale is approximately 700 pounds, and 4 x 5 or 5 x 4 will weigh on average around 1000 pounds and a 4 x 6 or 5 x 5 may get up to

DAVID DUGAN around 1400 pounds on average. That would mean a 4x6 bale will have twice as much hay in it as a 4 x 4 bale if these weight averages are accurate. Then you look at a 5 x 6 that will average in the neighborhood of 1800 pounds. That means a 5 x 6 bale is more than 2.5 times as much hay as a 4 x 4 bale. But it is worth considering if you are buying or selling hay. Compare apples to apples, not apples to oranges. Ok, we have now established that we have some big differences in the amount of hay large round bales depending on the size. What other differences should be factors in establishing the price or value of a large round bale (or any hay)? Here are some more things to think about as we decide what hay might be worth. What is it? Just because it has been put into a baler, it is round and either is bound by twine or net wrap, does not necessarily make it hay or even feed. If it is going to be used as feed it needs to have nutritional value. Back in 2007, when hay was short, producers were rolling up corn stalks, soybean stubble, and anything they could to try to make it through the winter. We use several things that have various qualities when it comes to forages for hay. Some of the more common forages include orchardgrass, fescue, timothy,

clover and alfalfa. The feed value of these is not the same in fact they can vary greatly for different things that animals may require like protein, energy, fiber and more. Corn stalks and soybean stubble have plenty of fiber, but not much more. The quality is something else to consider when looking at the forages that make up the round bale. All alfalfa or all orchardgrass is not the same. Depending on how mature it was when it was cut will greatly affect the quality of the hay in the bale, plus other issues like if the hay was cured and dry when it was baled, or if it was rained on after it was cut. The problem most producers are facing now is the fact that we have had too much rain for hay to be harvested without these issues. The quality continues to diminish on much of the crop and the weather is not being cooperative. When it comes to quality there are several things that you can do when inspecting hay in addition to pulling a sample and sending it to a lab to have it tested. Here are some things that you can do while looking at the hay to get an idea about quality. Try to establish the Stage of Maturity, the Leafiness, the Color, the Odor and Condition, and look for Foreign Material. A good fact sheet from the University of Maryland discusses these in detail and even gives you a chart to rank and score hay based on what you see. The fact sheet can be found at /PDFs/FS644.pdf or contact your local Extension office for information. The last thing that should be checked out and considered when estimating the value of a large round bale is the storage. Round bales were designed to be stored outside and shed

water. However, this is not without the loss of hay, so there are several things that can be factors in the amount of hay loss you may be looking at. Round bales stored inside will have the least decay. Bales stored outside on a raised area with gravel under them will reduce the amount of decay on the bottom of bales versus bales stored on the ground. Even hay on the ground will have less decay if it is elevated so water can get away from the hay that is actually touching the ground. Stacking hay outside that is not covered will have losses where the hay touches because the water is trapped there. Keep in mind that if you have a few inches of decay on the top of the bale, or maybe even more on the bottom of the bale, the amount of hay, or the percentage of hay lost is in relation to the size of the bale. There is no exact science to putting a value on a round bale, but these things should help establish a fair price for both the buyer and the seller. Hopefully these points will also help make fair comparisons when it comes to the size of the bales, the quality of the hay and the amount of dry matter that can be consumed by the livestock that will be eating the hay. The one factor that I did not mention above that always comes into play is basic economics. Supply and demand will always have an influence on the value of anything, and large round bales are not exempt from that. When hay is in short supply the price will be higher than when everyone has plenty of hay to feed and there are very few looking to buy. Even when we have extremes of these situations, it is a good idea to compare what you are getting for your money.

“Brain attack” new term for stroke Question: My husband’s doctor told him he might have a “brain attack” if he doesn’t control his high blood pressure and diabetes. What is a “brain attack”? I have never heard of this, and I am 75-year-old former nurse. Answer: A “brain attack” is a new and increasingly popular term for a stroke, and it’s catching on among physicians and the general public. The idea is that, since everyone seems to respond to the term “heart attack,” people might pay more attention to the risk of stroke if it had a similar name. After all, the two disease processes are quite similar, as you know from your nursing days. In a heart attack, the arteries that carry blood to the heart muscle either rupture or become blocked. In a brain attack, the arteries servicing the brain rupture or become blocked. Once these critical arteries fail, the

MARTHA SIMPSON heart or brain is deprived of blood, and therefore, oxygen. Without oxygen, heart and brain cells both begin to die. Strokes are the leading cause of disability in adults, and they kill more than 150,000 people in the U.S. each year. Risk factors for both strokes and heart attacks include high blood pressure and diabetes, as you mentioned, plus smoking, elevated cholesterol and heart trouble. Although the causes of strokes and heart attacks are similar, the symptoms differ widely. Heart attacks cause shortness of breath and pressure, squeezing or pain

in the chest and upper body. A brain attack or stroke, on the other hand, usually causes sudden, partial paralysis and/or an inability to walk, talk, eat or swallow. One common warning sign of a brain attack is a transient ischemic attack, or “ministroke.” These come on with the same symptoms as a full stroke, but last short periods of time. Other stroke warning signs include difficulty speaking or understanding speech, problems walking, severe visual disturbances -- often in one eye, and sudden weakness or numbness on one side of the face or in limbs on one side of the body. Any of these symptoms should be viewed as medical emergencies, even if they fade away within hours or even minutes. Immediate treatment can prevent a full stroke –- and potentially, death or permanent

loss of function. One possible problem with the terms “heart attack” and “brain attack,” is that while the phrases sound serious and familiar, they somewhat obscure the source of the problem. There is no “attack” on the heart or brain, and neither do these organs “attack” the body. Instead, as I described above, the problem occurs within the arteries, or the vascular system. Perhaps the bigger issue here is that many people do not understand terms related to the vascular system, such as atherosclerosis –- the leading cause of both strokes and heart attacks. Atherosclerosis is the build-up of dense, fatty plaque in the arteries. Avoiding this condition, through a healthy diet, exercise and regular doctor visits, will help you prevent both heart and brain attacks.

Master Gardener volunteer program week Ohio Master Gardener volunteers love plants and teaching others about gardening. So much so that they spent over 151,000 hours last year leading beautification projects, giving horticultural presentations and raising gardening awareness. Their volunteer efforts resulted in $3.3 million worth of community service contributions throughout Ohio. The contributions of Master Gardener volunteers was celebrated during Master Gardener Volunteer Program Week, May 17-24. This year’s theme is “Master Gardener Volunteers Give Back.” Master Gardener Volunteer Program Week, which began in 2008, honors the hard work and dedication of Master Gardener Volunteers throughout Ohio and recognizes OSU Extension’s efforts in promoting the Master Gardener Volunteer program.

The program provides leadership and educational development to individuals interested in gardening and giving back to their communities. Brown County Master Gardener Volunteers are meeting monthly with an enthusiastic group of gardeners at the Ohio Veterans Home at Georgetown. Large raised beds in the courtyard are accessible to gardeners that have limited movement capabilities. We will be helping amend the soil, till, plant, or complete any other jobs as needed. Most of all, we look forward to making new gardening friends as the summer growing season progresses.
