Biden, Ryan both visit area



Vice President Joe Biden speaks to supporters Sunday, Sept. 9 at Milford High School.

Ryan stressed the importance of Ohio as a swing state in the national campaign, telling supporters that their vote was critical in November.

Biden brings campaign to Paul Ryan makes stop at Clermont with stop in Milford Clermont County Fairgrounds BY Art Hunter The Brown County Press Vice President Joe Biden addressed a crowd of hundreds of enthusiastic supporters at Milford High School Sunday, Sept. 9. The stop in Milford was part of a weekend campaign swing that took the vice president through southwest Ohio. Biden was quick to con-

nect with his supporters, comparing Ohio with his home state of Pennsylvania, and giving an optimistic assessment of the future. “I come from a state not unlike yours, I come from Pennsylvania,” Biden said. “The same things that happened in Pennsylvania have happened here in Ohio, and I’ll tell you what, both are coming back.”

In his address, Biden drew sharp contrasts between the policies of the Obama administration and those of Republican challengers Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan. “This country literally faces one of the starkest choices in the choice for president in my memory,” Biden said. He said that the RepubliCONTINUED ON PAGE 6

BY Kristin Bednarski The Brown County Press Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan made a stop in Clermont County Sept. 12 to speak in front of a large crowd at the Clermont County Fairgrounds in Owensville. Ryan promised to bring change and repair the “mess in Washington,” if elected in

November and also stressed the importance of Ohio votes in the election. The campaign rally included a musical performance by John Michael Montgomery and remarks from Governor John Kasich, congressional candidate Brad Wenstrup, unopposed senate candidate Joe Uecker and Clermont County Republican Party Chairman

Tim Rudd before Ryan took the stage. Ryan began by taking a moment to discuss the deaths of United States Ambassador Chris Stevens and embassy staff members in Libya Sept. 11. “This is a time for healing, but also a time of resolve,” Ryan said. Ryan said the world needs CONTINUED ON PAGE 12

Rumpke applies to burn more gas at G’ town landfill


One of the unfortunate realities of landfills is that they smell. The Rumpke company that operates a landfill just north of Georgetown wants to do something about the odor. The company is asking the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency for permission to increase the amount of methane and other gases that are burned off at the facility. Gases that are generated by the decomposition of garbage underground are collected by a series of wells, drawn to a central point and then burned. The current burn rate is capped at 1000 standard cubic feet per minute. Rumpke is asking the OEPA to increase that cap to 1450 cubic feet per minute. A public hearing was held at the Southern Hills Career and Technical Center as part of the permitting process. At the hearing, Rumpke Spokesperson Molly Yeager said “We hope that local residents understand that we are asking for this increase to help control the odors from the landfill.” Controlling the odor seemed to be a priority of many of those that attended the hearing as well. Charles Ernst, who lives right across Highway 68 from the landfill said “The smell has gotten so bad I can’t even have family over to my house. You can’t hardly stand it.” Following a short presen-

tation, representatives of the OEPA officially opened the public hearing. One of those who chose to speak was Diana Cahall, who said “Smell has been a continuing source of complaints for residents in proximity to that landfill for decades. The odors are worse than they used to be. Ohio Administrative Code requires that landfills control odors, otherwise they are a public nuisance. Why haven’t one of the various complaints resulted in a public nuisance designation?” Dr. Jeff Donohoo spoke after the hearing about the frustration of making numerous complaints. “At what point does someone do something about the complaint that you filed? I think there needs to be a simplified process by which a citizen can file a complaint in a time period where something will get done.” Donohoo also expressed concern about the long term health effects on local resiCONTINUED ON PAGE 6

The Obama campaign came to Georgetown on Sept. 7. A bus from the “ObamaBiden Heartland Tour 2012” stopped at the Democrat Party Headquarters on West

State Street to rally the faithful and bring the message of the Obama campaign to Brown County. The headliners aboard the bus were Greg Schultz, Ohio Chairman of Obama for America, and Fred Deel, former director of the Governor’s Office for Ap-

palachia during the Strickland administration. They were met by a group of local Democrat party officials and members. Schultz began the visit by telling those assembled that President Obama was concerned with the middle class CONTINUED ON PAGE 6

In just two weeks, residents in Clermont County will have a new grocery store to explore. Jungle Jim’s International Market is scheduled to open Sept. 25, and the non-traditional market will offer thousands of products and also an experience that will begin as soon as customers walk in the door. Jimmy Bonaminio, creative director for Jungle Jim’s, and Debby Hartinger, public relations marketing co-

ordinator, said they too feel the anticipation about the store opening. “We are totally excited,” Hartinger said. “We’ll be working down to the last minute. We will be ready.” Hartinger said “Jungle” Jim Bonaminio, who founded Jungle Jim’s in 1974, is keeping the process fun and constantly changing, even up until the final weeks remaining before the opening. She said the store is filled with products, and the look has changed drastically from when there were just empty food stands and shelves posi-

tioned throughout the store. Hartinger said the job fair was a success and they were able to hire many quality candidates to work at the market. She said employees who were hired after the job fair July 31-Aug. 1 have either been trained or are in training, which will last until opening day. Hartinger said they will definitely be working up until the day the store opens making sure the store is ready for customers. Bonaminio said, then, once the doors have opened, their focus will shift to the customers. Hartinger and Bonaminio know that there will be a variety of customers that will shop at Jungle Jim’s in Eastgate. Some customers who are fans and followers of Jungle Jim’s and some who have never heard about the market before. Regardless of whether customers are having their first Jungle Jim’s experience, or have shopped at Jungle Jim’s


Jungle Jim’s will soon be part of the community


Jungle Jim’s employees and construction crews complete final projects at the international market, which will be open and ready for customers Sept. 25.

100 times, Hartinger and Bonaminio are confident the store will have both products and excitement for everyone. “If this is your first experience, you’ll be blown away,” Bonaminio said.“If you’ve been before, you’ll be blown away.” Bonaminio and Hartinger agreed that there are definitely some things to know about shopping at Jungle Jim’s, especially for those who have never visited the Fairfield location before. “Check the website, and plan a trip,” Hartinger said about coming to the market. Bonaminio said make sure to pay attention to the direction and flow of the improved parking lot when you arrive at Jungle Jim’s in Eastgate, located on Eastgate South Drive. He said customers should grab a cart from the designated area under the monorail before entering the store. “Pick up a store map when you get here,” Hartinger said. She said maps will be available inside, and guests will also find that the different sections of the store are colorcoded, including American grocery, international food, seafood and more. “Don’t be afraid to ask employees if you need help,” Hartinger said. Bonaminio and Hartinger suggested customers take time to look around and take in the sights of the new mar-

ket. They said customers should explore all sections of the market even if they are unfamiliar with the products. “Wear good walking shoes,” Hartinger said. Both Bonaminio and Hartinger agreed that seeing the whole store in one day is difficult, and customers will often come back to the Fairfield market and notice products and displays they didn’t see the first time. Hartinger also encouraged customers to explore the other stores in the Jungle Jim’s shopping center. Many of the tenants are new since Jungle Jim’s came in and have recently opened their doors as well. And while the “grand” opening of the new Jungle Jim’s carries a lot of excitement, Bonaminio and

Hartinger agreed that the opening of the store is really just the beginning of what is to come. “One stage is finished,” Bonaminio said about the store opening. “Just one step.” Bonaminio said what lies ahead is the process of making the store as lovable to the Clermont community as the Fairfield Jungle Jim’s is to the Fairfield community. Hartinger said “Jungle” Jim gave the Eastgate market good genes, just as he did with the Fairfield market, but time will continue to develop the store into something unique. “It’s like a child developing,” Bonaminio said. “It will have its own personality.”

Sewer inspections to increase Brown County residents will soon be seeing many more inspections from Sanitarians at the Brown County Health Department. Health Commissioner Rusty Vermillion said that regular Operational and Maintenance inspections of septic tanks and other sewer systems have begun and will continue in the county.

“We didn’t have the manpower to do these inspections for a while, but now we have a full-time Sanitarian who will be making these inspections on a regular basis”, Vermillion said. Residents will be billed $40.00 for the inspections regardless of the condition of the system. Vermillion said he recognized that the fee would be money out of pocket for residents, but that the inspec-

tions were necessary and beneficial in many cases. “These inspections can catch problems before they start and allow homeowners to fix them before they become even more expensive”, Vermillion said. He added that a recent inspection that showed a good report could be used to satisfy the requirements of a bank or a buyer should the resident want to sell or take out a mortgage on their

homes. Vermillion said that homes that received permits between 2002 and 2012 would be inspected first, with other systems to follow. He added that the inspector would be driving a marked vehicle and be wearing a shirt or jacket with identification. Questions about the program can be directed to the Brown County Health Department at (937) 378-6892.

Dietician ready to help at SWRMC BY Wayne Gates The Brown County Press Health experts agree that what you eat...and how much...plays a major part in how healthy you are. Karah Stanley works as a Registered Dietician at Southwest Regional Medical Center in Georgetown. Her job is to help patients and people in the community make the proper dietary choices to create and maintain a healthy lifestyle. Stanley said when she gets a new patient, she begins by asking them to keep track of what they eat every day, and then she calculates the amount of calories they take in. “When people actually write down what they eat and find out how many calories they consume, they are astounded”, Stanley said. “Knowing what you put into your body is the first step toward making good decisions about your diet. All those sodas and handfuls of candy or snacks...those all add up during the day.” Stanley said she does dietary counseling for people with a number of conditions, including diabetes, weight loss and high cholesterol. “I talk to them about things like what foods to choose, portion control and other information to help them reach their goals to get and stay healthy”, Stanley said. She added that the service she offers is covered by insurance in many cases, because insurance companies are recognizing the value of preventative treatment. “Someone who catches diabetes early and makes the necessary lifestyle changes will have far fewer medical problems in the long run”, Stanley said. She encourages potential patients to look into what services are approved by their

insurance company so they can take advantage of them. Stanley added that nutrition counseling can also be ordered by a doctor’s prescription, so anyone who thinks that they could benefit from such services should first talk to their doctor. Stanley said knowledge is power when it comes to nutrition and weight loss. “Take the time to find out what’s in the food you’re eating and how many calories it has in it”, she said. “Don’t try to change everything at once, but get started in the right direction with cutting back on your portions and making good diet decisions.” Stanley also said not to expect too much too soon when it comes to weight loss. “If someone is losing half a pound or a pound a week, that’s a good rate of weight loss that will allow them to keep it off as long as they maintain that healthy lifestyle.” A pound is approximately 3500 calories, so if a person burned 500 more calories per day than they took in, they would lose one pound in a week. Stanley said a good goal for daily caloric intake would be about 1200 to 1500 calories per day. Stanley said that a trend in restaurants is also contributing to weight problems in America. “Portion sizes are out of control compared with twenty or thirty years ago”, she said. “When you combine that with a ‘clean your plate’ mentality that many of us were taught as children, you end up with people consuming a tremendous amount of calories when they eat out.” Stanley can be reached at Southwest Regional Medical Center at (937) 378-7500.

Rumpke’s open house draws large crowd Rumpke welcomed more than 250 visitors to its annual landfill open house, Saturday, Aug. 25 to tour the site, make crafts and “talk some trash” with employees. Visitors were able to board a bus that drove them into the heart of Rumpke’s Brown County operations to get a firsthand look at landfill construction and daily operations. During the 11:15 a.m. tour, visitors were also able to watch a controlled blast, showcasing how Rumpke excavates the land. Throughout the event, Rumpke employees served as a resource to visitors, showcasing the environmental safeguards at the landfill and answering questions. The day wasn’t just about trash; recycling was an important component. The Adams-Brown Recycling Center brought its mobile education unit full of do’s and don’ts for recycling.

Orab with "En-

Orab and the surrounding areas is tremendous. However, we are still short of our goal of $3500. The "Entrance Signs" will be 4' x 8' and will be beautifully landscaped.

WB employee asks that levy be considered Dear Editor, I am writing this letter asking the patrons of the Western Brown Local School District to vote YES on the 5.9 mills operating tax levy in the November 6th General Election. I am a veteran employee in the school district with 50+ years of service in the system in both in the capacity of a classified as well as a certified employee. I can honestly tell you that Western Brown has always been a solvent school district until the past few years when both the federal government and the state began cutting funds to school districts. Western Brown has never asked the voters to approve an operating levy since the school district was consolidated in 1971. This fact alone tells you Western Brown has been fiscally responsible the past 41 years. A reduction of $1.3 million dollars was made in the budget during the 2006-2007 school year and an addi-

tional $1.6 million dollars budgetary cuts were made at the end of the 2011-2012 school year. In other words, the school district has exerted every possible effort to operate within realm of its finances but the time is before us when the expenditures are exceeding the monies being received. Speaking from a homemaker’s point of view - one cannot survive in this financial atmosphere for any length of time. Failure to pass the tax levy will force the school district to tighten the belt even tighter and make even more drastic cuts than have already been made. In balancing the budget each year, the district has been forced to reduce the budget allocations in several areas; namely, 15% of the staff has been reduced over the span of six years (34 employees resulting from retirements, resignations and attrition whose positions were not filled), employees agreed to a freeze in their base salaries

as well as an increase in the health insurance premiums, athletics pays 100% of transportation costs as well as reduction in other areas. Schools are an integral part of the community. We need to be partners in every respect. The importance of having a sound school system has a definite impact on business as well as property owners. The question most frequently asked of new comers looking to become part of the community is “What kind of schools do you have?” I have always been proud to answer “One of the best!” I sincerely hope the majority of the patrons in the school district share my sentiments and are supportive of the tax levy. I am very cognizant of today’s economy and the manner in which some are struggling to make ends meet. None of us relishes the thought of paying taxes - however, society has been paying taxes since Biblical days. Allow me to impart some of my own personal

experiences. When I began my first year in school (no kindergarten back then) the country was just emerging from The Great Depression and was immediately thrown into World War II. Times were also tough back then. Money was definitely short! However, taxpayers made it possible for me to have the opportunity of attending school which, by the way, I had to walk about one-half a mile to catch a school bus. I have always felt a moral obligation to do my part in supporting tax levies over the years. To paraphrase the Golden Rule, I feel it is most definitely my obligation to “Do for others as others have done for me.” Children are our greatest assets as well as being our future doctors, lawyers, public servants and valued members of the community. Show your support by voting YES on the Western Brown School tax levy on November 6th. Eva Lanter Mt. Orab

It seems like the Brown County Fair is a time when healthy eating habits and diets get thrown out the window by a lot of folks. And, yes-- it won’t be long before the elephant ears, deep-fried pickles, fudge, corn dogs, and pork tenderloin sandwiches—all traditional fair food favorites-- come out for the Brown County Fair. Well, here’s your personal invitation to take a break from chowing down and to try out the new Distracted Driving Simulator while at the Fair! Brown County Safe Communities, together with District 9 of the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT), are partnering this year at the Fair and will have a joint booth in the Bodley Building. At the booth we will have, courtesy of ODOT, a new machine to demonstrate the dangers of texting and other distractions while driving. ODOT personnel and Safe Communities staff and volunteers will be manning the Distracted Driving Simulator at the booth from noon to 9 p.m. beginning Monday, September 24, and running through the Saturday of the Fair. Anyone who is old enough to get his or her driver’s license can try out the Simulator. We will also be giving out “One Text or Call Can Wreck It All” vehicle air fresheners at our booth, and will have a variety of other driving safety display materials. So come on over and see us in the Bodley Building while you’re at the Fair. Speaking of distracted driving, don’t forget that as of August 31, 2012, it is illegal to use any mobile communications device while driving in Ohio if you are under the age of 18. This means no texting, no e-mailing, and no talking on cell phones, Bluetooths, Bluetooth speakers, On-Star, or

SUSAN BASTA any similar device. You also cannot play video games or use computers, laptops, iPad/tablet or handheld GPS devices while driving, even when sitting at a light or in a traffic jam. (There is a sixmonth warning period during which no enforcement will be taken. After that date, enforcement action begins. ) This will be a primary offense, which means it is the only reason police need to pull you over. First violation is a $150 fine and driver license suspension for 60 days. Second violation is a $300 fine and license suspension for one year. Exceptions include pre-programmed GPS or emergency calls to police, ambulance, or fire department. If you are an adult (that is, age 18 or older), this same law prohibits you from writing, sending or reading a text-based message from behind the wheel of a car. For adults, this is a secondary offense and a minor misdemeanor. If you want more information on this new law, please visit: The Brown County Safe Communities Program is funded by the U.S. Dept. of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the Ohio Department of Public Safety/Office of Criminal Justice Services-Traffic Safety. It is locally coordinated by the HEALTH-UC and the University of Cincinnati AHEC Program office at 114 E. State St. in Georgetown, Ohio.

What Do You Think? In New York it has been proposed that all extra-large (over 16 ounce) sweetened drinks be banned.

What are your feelings on this proposal?

I think that's silly. If I'm paying for a drink it's my drink. Ruth Henderson, Russellville

I think that's totally absurd. People should be able to make their own decisions, not the government. Tom Bass, Mt. Orab

I don't think the government should have any control over how much I drink. Judy Houston, Mt. Orab

I like the jumbo drinks, I would definitely not support a proposal like that. Tiffani Waits, Mt. Orab

It doesn't really matter, people will just buy two drinks instead of one. Daniel Hamm, Ripley

When asked how the Obama campaign was going to get their message out, Deel responded “We are going to go neighbor to neighbor and door to door, making sure we tell our friends and our family how important it is to get out and vote.” Brown County Democrat Party Chairman Dallas Hurt said that the 2012 Presidential Election is a unique one. “Brown County is so far off the beaten path that we haven’t been visited by Presidential Candidates in a long time. This year, Ohio is so central to getting a majority of electoral college votes, that we are getting a lot of attention.” Hurt then provided some

history. “On the Democrat side, we were visited by Williams Jennings Bryan gave speech a in Georgetown in 1896 and John Glenn visited the Brown County Fair in 1984 during the Democrat season. And in 2008, Barack Obama got pie and coffee in Georgetown.” Regarding the current political candidates, Hurt said “We suspect we haven’t seen the last of them this fall.” Republican Presidential Candidate Rick Santorum visited Brown County in February of this year. In addition to Ohio, the Heartland Bus Tour also made stops in Minnesota, Wisconsin and Iowa.

Biden brings campaign to Clermont with stop in Milford CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 cans are in favor of replacing Medicare with what he called “voucher-care,” cutting spending on Social Security and education, and increasing taxes on middle class families. “Why are they doing all of this?” he asked. “Because they have to. They need to pay for the additional tax cuts for the wealthy, and the wealthy are not even asking for these cuts.” Biden said that he and President Obama have a different plan, which includes leveling the economic playing field, ending

the war in Afghanistan, and repairing the country’s bridges, schools, and roads. He said that the choice offered by the challengers is nothing new. “Folks, we’ve seen this movie before and we know how it ends,” Biden said. “It ends in a catastrophe for the middle class, it ends in the great recession of 2008.” Biden was introduced by Milford High School teacher Gabrielle Downey, who said she worried about her students’ future, and said that the Democrats represent the values of the community. “In this election, we are

Rumpke applies to burn more gas CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 dents that are exposed to the gas being burned at the landfill. Yeager said that the air quality at the landfill is sampled once per month and the results are compared with safe levels for adults, children and pregnant women to make sure they are within an acceptable healthy range. In response to the remarks about odor complaints not being addressed, OEPA Representative Heather Lauer said “We need to have some

coordination so people can have one place where they can call. We’ll be working with the Portsmouth Local Air Agency (the office where local residents are told to call) and the Brown County Health Department to make the complaint process easier.” The OEPA will review the comments made at the hearing and any written comments submitted and then will make a final decision whether to approve or deny the increased gas burn rate.

DAR promotes Constitution Week awareness CMYK

BY Sue McKinley DAR, Taliaferro Chapter September 17, 2012, begins the national celebration of Constitution Week. The weeklong commemoration of America’s most important document is one of our country’s least known official observances. Our Constitution stands as a testament to the tenacity of Americans throughout history to maintain their liberties and freedom, and to ensure those inalienable rights to every American. The tradition of celebrating the Constitution was started many years ago by the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR). In 1955, the Daughters petitioned Congress to set aside September 17-23 annually to be dedicated for the observance of Constitution Week. The resolution was later adopted by the U.S. Congress and signed into Public Law #915 on August 2, 1956 by President Dwight D. Eisenhower. The aims of the celebration are to (1) emphasize citizens’ responsibilities for protecting and defending the Constitution, preserving it for posterity; (2) inform the people that the Constitution is the basis for America’s great heritage and the foundation for our way of life; and (3) encourage the study of the historical events which led to the framing of the Constitution in September 1787. The United States of America functions as a Republic under the Constitution, which is the oldest document still in active use that outlines the self-government of a people. This landmark idea that men had the inalienable right as individuals to be free and live their lives under their own governance was the impetus of the American Revolution. Today, the Constitution stands as an icon of freedom for people around the world. "We must remember and teach that those who wrote the Constitution believed that no government can create freedom, but that government must guard freedom rather than encroach upon the freedoms of its people" stated Merry Ann T. Wright, President General of the DAR. "The Constitution by itself cannot guarantee liberty. A nation’s people can remain free only by being responsible citizens who are willing to

learn about the rights of each arm of government and require that each is accountable for its own function. Therefore, Constitution Week is the perfect opportunity to read and study this great document which is the safeguard of our American liberties. We encourage all citizens across the country to take time this week to guard that which is committed to us by our forefathers... our freedom." DAR has served America for 122 years as its foremost

cheerleader. In 1928, the Daughters began work on a building as a memorial to the Constitution. John Russell Pope, architect of the Jefferson Memorial, was commissioned to design the performing arts center, known as DAR Constitution Hall. Today, DAR Constitution Hall is the only structure erected in tribute to the Constitution of the United States of America. Known as the largest women’s patriotic organization in the world, DAR has

over 165,000 members with approximately 3,000 chapters in all 50 states and 11 foreign countries. The DAR has long promoted patriotism through commemorative celebrations, memorials, scholarships and activities for children and programs for new immigrants.

REACTING #2 Last week I was talking about the last steps of Jesus Christ on this earth as a mortal human being. Matthew 27 gives us an account of what took place at that time. Judas repented himself after betraying Christ. In other words he felt sorry for himself for being in the middle of it and knowing that everyone would find out what he had done. Then he admits that Jesus is quote: “the innocent blood”. The chief priests and elders could care less about that fact. They were willing to execute an innocent man but careful not to break God’s law concerning not putting blood money into the treasury. Verse 12 is a fulfillment of the prophecy in Isaiah 53:7. Christ was willing to take all of our sins upon Himself without one word to defend Himself before Pilate. Now in verse 15, the Bible tells us that at this time the governor, which was Pilate, was by law allowed to release a prisoner unto the people. They had the choice of whom it would be. The people had the opportunity to release Jesus right then and there! It was completely in their hands. Verses 16-17 states: “And they had then a notable prisoner, called Barabbas. Therefore when they were gathered together, Pilate said unto them, Whom will ye that I release unto you? Barabbas, or Jesus which is called Christ? Jesus, according to Jewish law, was named the eighth day after His birth. The Bible says in Luke 2:21: “And when eight days were accomplished for the circumcising of the child, his name was called Jesus...” There was no time in which He was named Christ, however, He was called Christ from the beginning. Christ means the anointed one, the Messiah, the holy one! He was the innocent blood, the sinless one; the anointed KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS! Pilate knew that Jesus was innocent. Look at verse 18: “For he knew that for envy they had delivered him.” Verse 19: “When he was set down on the judgment seat...” When Pilate sat down on that judgment seat his authority became absolutely official. But watch, “...his wife sent unto him, saying, Have thou nothing to do with that just man: for I have suffered many things this day in a dream because of him.” Judas called Jesus the innocent blood and now Pilate’s wife calls Him a


just man! Verse 20: “But the chief priests and the elders persuaded the multitude that they should ask for Barabbas, and destroy Jesus.” This whole multitude of people was influenced by one group of people! They did exactly as they were told without thinking it through. Verses 21-24: “The governor answered and said unto them, Whether of the twain will ye that I release unto you? They said, Barabbas. Pilate saith unto them, What shall I do then with Jesus which is called Christ? They all say unto him, Let him be crucified. And the governor said, Why, what evil hath he done? But they cried out the more, saying, Let him be crucified. When Pilate saw that he could prevail nothing, but that rather a tumult was made, he took water, and washed his hands before the multitude, saying, I am innocent of the blood of this just person: see ye to it.” The washing of his hands was symbolic. It did nothing to relieve him of the responsibility of what he was about to do. Every person in this world will have to decide what they will do with Jesus. The responsibility is theirs. Romans 3:23 states: “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.” Jesus died for the sins of the whole world and you can not just wash your hands of Him and get out of the judgment to come. Verse 25: “Then answered all the people, and said, His blood be on us, and on our children..” If you reject Him His blood will be on you also. Accept Him as your Savior and be cleansed by His blood and not stained with it. Romans 10:9;13 says: “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.... For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” That is a promise!

Clermont County. “It's very important we get the boundaries of this infestation identified,” Gates said. “These surveys will help determine the full extent.” Gates said the other portion of the funds will be used by the ODNR for replanting efforts in the area. “We recognize the change in landscape,” Gates said about the removal of thousands of trees. “We want to be able to work with property owners to begin to provide them with resources for replanting.” The $2 million in funding from the state is in addition to $14.8 million in funding from the United States Department of Agriculture that was announced in August. The Asian Longhorned Beetle infestation was dis-

covered in Ohio in Tate Township in June of 2011. Monroe and Stonelick townships were also found to have satellite infestations. As of Sept. 4, 8,716 infested trees had been removed from Clermont County and 170,575 trees had been surveyed. Gates said they will continue to move forward with eradication efforts and additional surveys in the area. “We are working to do what we can with these funds and continue to work to eradicate ALB,” Gates said.

WB hosts education meeting


Southern Hills Career and Technical Center’s Welding students recently finished a project for the Western Brown Athletic Department. At the end of the south endzone of Kibler Stadium resides the sand-filled long-jump pit. In the past this has been covered by plywood that had to be replaced each year. The Welding students, led by instructor, Mr. John Adams, designed and built a three piece grate system allowing patrons to walk over the pit without tripping in the sand. This project required the students to CAD design, grind, cut and weld the cover. Pictured left to right: Cameron Walker, Eddie Thorson, Garrett Taylor, Instructor Mr. John Adams, Cody Randolph, John Pierce, Nathan Day, Will McMullen, Dustin Canter, Kenny Fisher, Chris Denny, Timothy (Doc) Seip.

‘The Hillsboro Story’: Civil rights drama comes to Southern State “On a hot summer night—July 5, 1954—Lincoln School, the ‘colored’ elementary school in Hillsboro, Ohio, went up in flames, and my sweet, sleepy, segregated little hometown was suddenly awake…” So writes author-performer Susan Banyas, a third grader in 1954 and witness to the powerful civil rights drama unfolding around her. Banyas will bring a theatrical performance of “The Hillsboro Story” back to its namesake town 7:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 28, in the Edward K. Daniels Auditorium on Southern State Community College’s Central Campus, 100 Hobart Drive, Hillsboro. The event, free and open to the public, is funded by a Choose to Read LSTA (Library Services and Technology Act) Grant awarded to Hillsboro City Schools. The scene opens on July 5, 1954, when the “colored” elementary school went up in flames. The county engineer, a white man determined to force integration, struck the match on that hot summer night that sent him to the state penitentiary (and into the FBI files) and ignited five African-American mothers to stage a two-year protest. This local event became the first test case for Brown v. Board of Education (the May 1954 U.S. Supreme Court decision which banned school segregation) in the North. Banyas was in third grade at the time, and her memory of those events sparked this cultural detective story—a lively weaving of spoken word, movement, monologues and visual images, backed by an evocative original music score. The show will be performed by Banyas and a cast of professional actors. “I was in the third grade, absorbing the cultural commotion, which was quickly

and quietly thrown into the dump heap of history and reduced to two one-liners: ‘The negro women were trouble-makers’ and ‘The county engineer was crazy,’” said Banyas. The work was written as a sequel to “No Strangers Here Today,” a local story of the Underground Railroad movement. Both works are set in Highland County, Ohio, 100 years apart, and celebrate biracial resistance movements that are core to maintaining democracy and upholding human rights. Southern State Community College hosted a performance of “No Strangers Here Today” in February 2009. “Fifty years after seeing the Marching Mothers outside Mrs. Mallory's classroom window, I went back to my hometown to find them,” said Banyas. “The investigation is informed by historical research, photography and extensive interviews with key players locally and nationally, whose voices form the heart of the story.” Voices in the story— sometimes identified, sometimes not—come from multiple interviews and include Elsie Steward Young (marching mother),

Gertrude Clemons Hudson (marching mother), Imogene Curtis (ringleader of the marching mothers), Eleanor Curtis Cumberland (Imogene’s daughter), Doris Cumberland Woods (classmate after integration), Lewis Goins (classmate after integration), Philip Partridge (engineer, from his memoir), Tom Partridge (Philip’s son), the Honorable Constance Baker Motley (attorney for the mothers), John Banyas (Susan Banyas’ father and Hillsboro businessman), Lenora Gordon (Susan’s friend Connie’s mother), Mrs. Mallory (reading “Charlotte’s Web”), Wesley C. “Junior” Burns (Imogene Curtis’ cousin), Judge Richard Davis (county prosecutor), James Hapner (attorney for the board of education), Mary Hackney (Quaker teacher), Thurgood Marshall (from his opinion in the Brown v. Board of Education case), Mississippi Senator James Eastland (from speech), Rosa Parks (from “Rosa Parks, a Life” by Douglas Brinkley) and Judge Potter Stewart (from his opinion in Clemons v. Board of Education/Hillsboro, Ohio). For more information about the Sept. 28 performance of “The Hillsboro Story,” please contact Louis Mays, SSCC Librarian, at 1-800-628-7722, ext. 3580, or

“This is a man I am proud to stand with,” Ryan said. Ryan said Romney a man who understands the needs of small business owners and working Americans. “He knows that if you have a small business, you built that small business,” Ryan said.

Ryan said selecting change in November is important. He said if citizens don't like the current administration and they are promising four years of the same, vote for something different. “This truly is the most important election in your generation,” Ryan said. Ryan said deciding on

Ryan gestures to the crowd as he is introduced at the rally.

who to vote for in November really comes down to a couple of questions. “What kind of people do we want to be?” Ryan asked. “What kind of country do we want to have?” Ryan said he and Mitt Romney believe in upholding the “beautifully written” Declaration of Independence that was founded by the idea that citizen's rights come from nature and nature's God and not the government. “We will fix this mess in Washington and get this country back on track,”Ryan said. “We will re-apply the founding principals.” Ryan called Ohio a target state in the campaign, and asked Ohioans for help to win the election. Ryan received positive feedback from the conservative crowd, which was packed into a temporary stadium at the fairgrounds. “I just love him,” Rosemary Holland, of Goshen, said. “I love his budget plan.”

Holland said she likes the fact that Ryan wants to have a balanced budget and not raise taxes on small business owners. She said she also likes that he wants to get manufacturing jobs back in the United States. “I'm tired of seeing 'Made in China' on everything,” Holland said. Her husband, Ken Holland, said he also likes Ryan's support for veterans. Jack Palmer of Mt. Orab said the atmosphere of the rally was “electric”. “The crowd just went wild when he came out. It was a great meeting and a great time for Republicans and conservatives.” Marlene and John Dennis, who drove up from Louisville, Ky., to attend the event, were also pleased with what they heard. “I strongly believe in what they're saying,” Marlene Dennis said. John Dennis said hopefully Republican support for Ryan will help swing Ohio.

Lady Warriors recover to Broncos roll earn tie late at Fayetteville past Waverly BY Andrew Wyder The Brown County Press Soccer is definitely a unique sport. In precious few other sports can one team dominate play nearly all night long but still find itself just minutes from a loss. The Eastern girls soccer team found itself in just that predicament last Monday night when they traveled to Fayetteville to battle the county rival Lady Rockets in a non-league matchup. Despite dominating possession -- particularly in the first half -- from the opening kick, the Lady Warriors found themselves trailing 1-0 with about 20 minutes left thanks to an unlikely Lady Rocket goal by freshman Brittany Mansfield. Instead of wilting, however, the Lady Warriors dug

Not quite the result they may have hoped for, Lady Warrior coach Sarah Koehler was happy to get out of town with the tie. “It would have been awful to control the whole game then end up losing,” she said afterwards. “As one of our fans said, ‘When you’re down and you end up tying you’ll take it’... And we’ll take it.” The night nearly got off to a great start for the Lady Rockets. A little less than two minutes in Kourtney Busam took a free kick from just outside the 18yard box that nearly went in. It hit the crossbar and bounced back out. “It seemed like to me that we had them on the ropes right at the beginning of the game and the ball went off the top crossbar and they cleared it,” Fayetteville coach Mark Ward said. “I told my team at halftime that’s where we’ve got to capitalize on that and put it in. That seemed like that gave them life.” In fact, off the rebound of Busam’s shot, the Lady Warriors (4-2-1) got the first of their many runs up field. Belmont was able to get up field and get off a clear shot but Lady Rockets keeper Cheyenne Ramey blocked it and grabbed to snuff out the threat.

BY Andrew Wyder The Brown County Press WAVERLY-- This season has gotten off to a pretty good start for the Western Brown football team. Not only are the Broncos seemingly getting better with every snap despite a roster filled with youth and inexperience but they seem to be gaining confidence each time out. In their latest conquest, a 56-8 thrashing of host Waverly last Friday night, the Broncos were dominant in every facet of the game. The Broncos racked up 650 yards of total offense and held the Tigers to just a little more than 200 yards

in picking up their third straight win to open the season. While they are well aware the season is still young and their tough conference slate is looming -starting Aug. 14 when Southern Buckeye Conference-American Division defending champ New Richmond visits Mt.

By the time the Georgetown volleyball team got done taking the first two games from Felicity last Thursday night, it looked like the Lady G-Men team that coach Donna DeVries had hoped to see. The Lady G-Men were passing well, getting good hits at the net and playing good defense against the visiting Lady Cardinals. But for whatever reason, once the third game began, it s eemed as if there was a completely different Lady G-Men squad on the floor. They struggled to reach their same level of consistency they had found throughout the first two games and the Lady Cardinals took advantage. Felicity fought all the way back to tie the Lady G-Men at two games apiece and force a fifth game with some strong play of their own. And in the final game, with both teams playing at a fairly h igh level, the Lady Cardinals were able to use a big run midway through to complete the comeback and win 3-2. The Lady Cardinals won 16-25, 14-25, 25-12, 25-19 and 15-12. “Overall, it’s a tough loss,” DeVries said after the match before explaining she simply couldn’t put her finger on what happened. The Lady G-Men took control early in the first game with Kaelyn Jordan at the service line. Three aces, and t wo Jessica Kidwell kills, later, the Lady G-Men had opened up a 6-2 lead. They opened their lead up even more when a Kidwell kill and a Morgan Gast push over gave the Lady G-Men a 22-14 lead as they rolled to a 25-16 victory. The second game unfolded in a very similar fashion. With Meranda Sullivan at the service line early in the match, the Lady GMen opened up a big 10-2 lead thanks to strong play from e very Lady G-Men player on the court. In fact, the Lady GMen’s attack was at its best in the second game. Gast was setting up teammates Kidwell, Jordan and Ally Dowd well for kills at the net and the Lady G-Men (3-4) rolled to another fairly easy victory, 25-14. And the third game got off to a pretty good start as well. A Sullivan ace and a Kidwell kill helped the Lady G-Men take a 6-2 lead. Then things jus t began to fall apart.

For the past six months or so, Mark Williams has been living out his dreams. The 2007 Fayetteville graduate has spent the early moments of spring, the dog days of summer and, now, the changing of seasons to fall toeing the pitching rubber for the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers, the Milwaukee Brewers low-A minor league affiliate in Appleton, WI. And Williams first full season in organized professional baseball has been a wild ride. The 6-foot-4 right handed hurler saw his role changed no less than three times but never let it effect him as he pitched well enough to earn a spot in the Midwest League All-Star game, helped the Timber Rattlers to a Western Division title and helped pitch a combined no-hitter. While most minor league teams seasons ended two weeks ago, however, the Timber Rat-


Jessica Kidwell tries to block a Felicity attack last Thursday evening.

Felicity fought back to tie the game two different times, at seven and 10 points apiece, after Georgetown had taken the lead back for a short time. With the game tied at 10, Jodi Seale took to the service line for the Lady Cardinals. By the time the Lady GMen were finally able to break her serve, after Felicity hit a return out, they found themselves down 19-11. “We were giving away to o many free balls,” DeVries said. “We weren’t aggressive enough offensively.” The visitors used the run to roll to a 25-12 game win and they seemed to roll with the momentum suddenly on their side. The Lady Cardinals ran out to an early lead in the fourth game and were able to stave off the Lady GMen. A big part of the problem for the Lady G-Men in the final three games was that they committed too many errors, as DeVries said because they were trying to be too careful, and because of the Lady Cardinals height. The combination of the Lady Cardinals two 5foot-10 hitters, Seale and Amber Lawrence, was too much for a Lady G-Men team lacking much height. Two Lawrence kills helped the Lady Cardinals extend their lead to 21-12 in the fourth game and it was Seale, with a one handed punch over, who finished off t he Lady GMen to tie the match at two games apiece. DeVries tried to rectify the Lady G-Men’s lack of

height recently by bringing freshman Meranda Wallace up from the junior varsity squad to add some more height to a small team. “I think early on we realized we needed some changes,” DeVries said. “(But) it’s taken awhile to gel.” In the deciding fifth game, it looked like the Lady G-Men -- who were begin ning to find some consistency -- had taken control about midway through. Kidwell took the serve with the Lady G-Men down 5-4 and quickly gave the hosts the lead with an ace. Once Jordan recorded a kill at the net and Seale hit out, the Lady G-Men had taken their lead to 8-5. It didn’t last long. Charlotte Clinger took the ball for the Lady Cardinals once they broke Kidwell’s serve and promptly put the visitors in the drivers seat. Three straight Lady GMen errors on Clinger serves helped the Lady Cardinals to a 12-8 lead. A Kidwell kill would get the Lady G-Men to within two, 14-12, late but the Lady Cardinals wrapped up the comeback win on the ensuing serve. It was a frustrating loss for the Lady G-Men. They played so well at times early on but couldn’t carry it through the whole match. They are just trying to work their way through it. “We’ve got to get mentally tougher,” DeVries said. “We see glimpses of it. We’ve gotta be more consistent.”

tlers continue to play on, in part because of Williams. Last Sunday night Williams pitched eight innings while giving up just two runs (one earned) in picking up a Western Division clinching 4-2 win over the Clinton LumberKings to propel the Timber Rattlers into the Midwest League Championship series against the Ft. Wayne TinCaps. Needless to say, it’s been quite the experience for Williams. “It’s been a ride to remember,” Williams said by phone Tuesday evening. “I can’t explain how special it is.” The game against the LumberKings didn’t get off to an especially good start for Williams last Sunday evening. He gave up two first inning runs, one of which was unearned thanks to an error. Williams, who saw his role move from tandem starter to full time starter to reliever back to full time starter during the course of

the year, was a little rattled after the first inning. After meeting with Timber Rattlers pitching coach David Chavarria and his catcher, Rafael Neda, between the first and second innings, however, Williams began to settle down. It also helped that his teammate, first baseman Nick Ramirez, hit a 2-run home run to tie the game in the bottom of the opening inning. “It really worked out with Nick's home run and the talk between the inning,” Williams said. “It really took off from there.” Williams would go on to retire the next 14 batters and 15 of the next 16. His final line was eight innings pitched, five hits, two runs (one earned), no walks and five strikeouts. Though it was a pressured situation, being a clinching game in the playoffs, Williams said that didn’t really effect him. What he was trying to do was pitch as well as his peers did the previous three CONTINUED ON PAGE 15

Eastern-Fayetteville: Lady Warriors fight back to earn tie with country rival CONTINUED FROM PAGE 13 Lady Warriors seemed to never let the ball leave the Lady Rockets (3-2-1) end of the field the first 40 minutes. Thanks in part to the Lady Rocket defense bending but not breaking and Ramey cleaning up the rest, however, they could never get a real good look off. The Lady Warriors also were a little slow on the trigger. “We dominated the whole time but we could not get on the end of it,” Koehler said of the first half. “(Belmont) had several good crosses we just didn’t get on the end of. We just weren’t shooting when we needed to. We were taking our time and waiting for that perfect shot. “Unfortunately, that typically doesn’t exist. You just have to take it when you get it.” Ironically, it was the Lady Rockets who took advantage of an opportunity when they got it. Halfway through the second half, as Eastern’s dominance with possession was wilting some and they were beginning to play better, the Lady Rockets took the lead. Ashley Moore got to a ball up field and dribbled down the sideline. Instead of trying to force something from the corner, Moore turned around and laid a perfect cross to Mansfield in front of the net. The freshman easily knocked it in past Eastern keeper Alex Davis for the go-ahead goal. “I’ve been really pushing Ashley to pull the ball back

and cross it. Ashley’s a very fast player and she likes to try and beat that edge all the time,” Ward said. “She did it this time. She pulled the ball back and made a beautiful cross pass.” Though Fayetteville knocked them off their feet, and nearly doubled their lead minutes later when Courtney Dozier had a look feet from the net she couldn’t get a foot on, the Lady Warriors kept fighting. Eastern nearly got the equalizer with a little over 16 minutes left when Sydney Yockey nearly tipped in a cross from a few feet out but it went just wide. But with 8:43 left, the Lady Warriors got their equalizer.

Belmont took a pass off a throw in and pounded in a shot past Ramey to tie the game at one apiece. “We fought back and got another one and that’s huge because so many times when teams get scored on they just let down,” Koehler said of the goal. “They kept back at it and got one in.” The final eight minutes were frantic as each team searched for the winning goal but neither got a real good look at one. While they may have hoped for a different result, both coaches were pleased - for different reasons -- to take the tie and wait for the rematch on Oct. 3 at Eastern when they’ll get together for a Southern Hills League clash.

The Brown County Press - Sunday, September 16, 2012 - Page 15


BY Andrew Wyder The Brown County Press It didn’t take long to figure out who was ready to play when the Fayetteville boys soccer team hosted county and conference rival Eastern last Monday night. Somewhat surprisingly, it wasn’t the previously undefeated Warriors. The Rockets, coming off of two straight losses, came out playing strong and never let off the throttle. They consistently put pressure on the Warriors defense with an aggressive attack that finally paid off late in the first half as they took an early lead before weathering a strong second half from the visitors to capture a 3-0 non-league victory. “It’s a little thing we call heart,” Fayetteville coach John Attinger said of how the Rockets ended their losing streak. “Tonight they found it again. And we have to continue to play with heart. They don’t play with heart, bad things happen.” The Rockets (3-3) aggressive attack was on display from the opening kick. After C.J. Knight made a run up field and got a shot off for Eastern that Rocket keeper Kasey Fitzpatrick got to, the Rockets began to dominate play. Every time you would look up a different Rocket player seemed to be making a run towards the goal. Many of their early attempts on goal, however, were thwarted by Eastern’s Nathan Scott.


Fayetteville’s Christian Conner looks to make a move near the Eastern goal as Eastern defenders Daniel Grayless (27), D.J. Sanders (29) and Curtis Burns (26) surround him.

The junior keeper made play after play to keep the game scoreless. In the first five minutes alone, he made a great stop on Christian Conner’s shot from right in front of the goal and then, while still on the ground, knocked away the rebound shot. Just minutes later he jumped up and trapped a Corey Lykins header against the corner of the goal to keep it from going in. While Scott was on top of his game, his Warrior teammates seemed to be struggling. Not only weren’t they finding many runs, but the Warriors (5-1) defense was playing on its heels as the Rockets attack pushed up field.

“I’ve been in too many of these games, I tried to tell them we have to match their intensity right from the get go,” Eastern coach Reggie Fender said. “We didn’t do it.” He added, of the Warriors defense in the first half, “I’ve never seen them like that before. I guess you’ve got to give Fayetteville credit. I guess we never faced a team with that speed and so many attackers.” Much of the damage done on the Rockets attack was by Conner with the help of Corey and Toby Lykins as well as DJ Iles. They all pushed the ball up the field every opportunity they got and finally, with 10:46 left in the first half, got a shot past Scott.

Williamsburg runs wild in first win of the season


BY Chris Chaney The Clermont Sun The Williamsburg Wildcats were able to put their first victory of the season on the record sheet on Friday, Sept. 7, with a 28-0 victory over Fayetteville as the Wildcats dominated all three phases of the game. “I thought we played well after two tough losses,” Williamsburg head coach Scott Lefker said. “The kids were able to regroup and put a few good plays together and we were pretty happy with the result.” Though they came up empty on the scoreboard and suffered their third loss to open the season, the Rockets didn’t feel all that bad about the loss because they did some things that the coaches were pleased to see. “We’re seeing that we are about to turn the corner,” Fayetteville coach Harley McCullough said Wednesday afternoon. “They played with intensity. This team did not dominate us like they could have.” The Wildcats opened up the scoring in the first quarter with 10:27 remaining following a solid first defensive stand. After forcing a Rockets’ three-and-out, sophomore do-it-all Rahshei Warren fielded a Fayetteville punt and went 87 yards nearly untouched to give Williamsburg a 7-0 lead. For the next quarter and a half, both teams stepped up their defensive pressure, both making an interception. Williamsburg’s quarterback, Lane Edminsten threw the first pick of the game on a deflected pass that Tanner Burchett came down with inside Wildcat territory. The Williamsburg D held strong, however, and came away with an interception of their own by Edminsten, who plays both ways for Burg. Piggybacking off of the momentum created by the defense, the Williamsburg offense put a shock into the crowd gathered at Osborne Football Stadium as Mason Hall broke loose on a 76yard touchdown run to double the Wildcat lead to 14-0 with 5:30 left in the half. Trailing by two scores


Tanner Burchett looks the ball in as he collects a first half interception last Friday night in Williamsburg.

the Rockets were beginning to put a drive together before it ultimately stalled. The Rockets offense has struggled in its first three games this season as they try to replace five key offensive starters from last year’s squad, including quarterback, running back, fullback and wing back. “We’re out there for four quarters. We just gotta get some offense,” McCullough said. “We knew it would be tough. (We’re) replacing skill players... all of them.” As former players and cheerleaders gathered near the sidelines for the halftime dedication of the field to Williamsburg legend, Ken Osborne, Lefker, one of Osborne’s former players, dialed up a few plays to honor his old coach after getting the ball back with about one minute remaining. Following a failed attempt at a quarterback throw-back, the Wildcats succeeded on a hook-andladder play that Hall took half of the length of the field for a touchdown with two seconds remaining on the clock. “One of his favorite plays was the hook-andladder,” Lefker said. “We tried to run it twice and actually scored on it the second time, so that was all for him, so I was glad it

worked out.” Following the trick play, the half ended on the ensuing kickoff, giving the Wildcats a 21-0 halftime cushion. The Wildcats added one more insurance touchdown in the second half courtesy of a Mason Hall four-yard run to give the Wildcats the 28-0 victory, their first of the season. Meanwhile, for the Rockets, the game was a mixed bag. They had chances to score, including two trips into the redzone, but couldn’t and gave up a few too many big plays. However, the Rockets also moved the ball on the edges and freshman Cole Schaefer continued to show his growth at the quarterback position by completing 11 of his 19 pass attempts. Considering that, McCullough and defense coordinator Nathan Geers have some positives to look to as they work to pick up their first win of the season heading into a portion of their schedule that includes similar sized schools St. Bernard, Gamble Montessori and Manchester. “One big thing this week we were looking for is to show some improvement,” McCullough said. “And we thought they did that.”

Connor was able to settle a ball less than 10 yards out in front of the goal and fired a shot to the corner that found net. Not only did the goal give the Rockets a 1-0 lead but it gave them some confidence considering how well Scott was playing. “He’s a very good keeper,” Attinger said. “To get one by him, that was huge. That was huge.” Even with the lead, the Rockets didn’t slow down. After just missing a few opportunities late in the first half and having Scott make another great save, the Rockets added to their lead less than a minute into the second half. Connor got on a run up the field and got off a shot that was a bit off line but

Corey Lykins was in the right spot and knocked home the loose ball to put the Rockets up 2-0. It was about that time, however, that the Warriors began to play a game resembling what they had as they rattled off five straight wins to start the season. Chase Lawson and Knight each got a couple good looks at shots early in the half but couldn’t convert. And that began to become a trend for the Warriors. They had shored up their issues from the first half and were making runs up the field but they just couldn’t get a shot to go. “The second half I thought we really played one of our best halves but we could not finish,” Fender said. “No matter what we tried, no matter who was trying to finish it, it wouldn’t go in. That happens. That’s soccer.” Fayetteville would go on to add another Corey Lykins goal late in the game as they won the first of two games against their rival. The two teams will get together on Oct. 5 at Eastern for their Southern Hills League matchup. A conference win or not, the win was big for a struggling Rockets team. “We really needed it,” Attinger said. “It was a big thing we needed, especially coming off a couple losses that they didn’t play well. Hopefully this gets us back on the right track.”

Broncos: Pick up third win in rout CONTINUED FROM PAGE 13 The blocks we weren’t getting, we’re getting now. All the catches we couldn’t make, we’re making now. “We just need to keep it up. We can’t get over our heads. And we can’t get too big-headed because next week’s rival week.” Though the offense took a little longer to get warmed up, the Broncos defense was on top of its game from the outset last Friday night. They quickly forced the Tigers into a three and out on the opening possession of the game and didn’t give much else up in the first half. In fact, they forced Waverly to punt four times and forced a fumble on the Tigers five possessions in the first half. The Tigers were only able to pick up three first downs on those five drives. Despite the Tigers having a decided advantage in size in the trenches, the Broncos smaller defensive line of Luke White, Ryan Fulmer, David Ellis and Trevor Lind set the tone with their defense. “Those guys rotated and played hard and got in their gaps and wouldn’t be pushed back by their big offensive line,” Western Brown coach Evan Dreyer said of his defensive line. “Then our linebackers made great tackles so they couldn’t bust one. And they only busted two or three long runs at all.” With the Tigers offense

finding no traction against the defense, the Broncos offense was able to weather a slow start. A Devyn Wood interception halted the Broncos first drive of the night but that was about all that could. They would go on to score on their next eight possessions of the night as they slowly but surely picked up steam. The Broncos first dented the scoreboard on a 33-yard touchdown pass from Wood to receiver Christian Dawson on a slip screen to give the Broncos a 7-0 lead late in the opening quarter. From that point on, the Broncos offense was a well oiled machine. They were able to both pass and run the ball when they wanted to on the Tigers defense as they began to march down the field for score after score. Being able to run the ball has been a key element in the Broncos potent offensive attack -- they are averaging 46.3 points a game -so far in the young season. Much of the damage the Broncos did on the ground against the Tigers was thanks to the strong play of Woodyard. The senior running back put the Broncos up 14-0 midway through the second quarter when he found pay dirt from three yards out. Jake Lawson (20-yard touchdown run) as well as freshman Austin Hass (76yard score) and junior Damien Hicks (25-yard

score) would all go on to add touchdown runs later in the game. But it was Woodyard -back to full strength from a knee injury he suffered two years ago -- who did the most damage. He carried the ball 23 times for 137 yards and three scores. “We’re running the ball a lot more and I absolutely love getting the ball,” Woodyard said. “I’m not selfish but any carry I get I’m not going to complain about.” He added of his offensive line, “They’re developing so fast I can’t even believe it. We’ve got so many sophomores on the line, I was kind of worried at first but I have nothing to worry about.” The offensive performance, which also included a 73-yard touchdown pass from Wood to senior Pierce Moore early in the fourth quarter, was a showcase for the team and its youth with so many players stepping up. Whether it was Wood, who had nearly 350 yards passing, Woodyard or freshman Eean Hornung, who had nine catches for 129 yards including several key third down receptions, somebody has stepped up to make plays when they were needed in all three games. “It’s just a new guy every week, it seems,” Dreyer said, “that steps up to have a better game and everybody else is just playing right there with them as well.”


Rockets earn needed win against Eastern


Williams: Pitches team to championship CONTINUED FROM PAGE 14 games. Chad Pierce and David Goforth pitched back-toback complete game shutouts while Chad Thompson pitched six innings of one run baseball with 10 strikeouts as the Timber Rattlers moved through a 2-1 series win over the Burlington Bees and began playing the LumberKings. He did admit pitching in the playoff atmosphere, which was strong despite playing the same time as the Green Bay Packers opened their season, was pretty exciting. “I really embraced that atmosphere,” Williams said. “I really, really had a good time out there.” The start against the Lumber Kings was indicative of how Williams had finished out the regular season. Despite starting the season in a tandem starting role and moving between the bullpen and starting rotation,

Williams finished the season with good numbers. He went 7-10 in 27 games (14 starts) with a 3.88 earned run average, just 42 walks and 90 strikeouts. Pitching as a full time starter, not in a tandem starting role, Williams had an up and down season. He struggled when he was moved back to being a full time starter after the AllStar break in his first five starts. He was moved to the bullpen after those five starts. “I think I just got in my own head again,” Williams explained. “I was excited I had my own spot. I think the first time I started I went four innings and gave up four runs. I was frustrated. I think it was a domino effect in the four starts that came after that. It was a grind.” After righting himself in the bullpen and moving back to the starting rotation in early August after a teammate was moved up to highA, Williams thrived.

He pitched a complete game shutout, with 11 strikeouts, against Cedar Rapids on Aug. 10. He was named Midwest League Pitcher of the Week for the performance. While he doesn’t care where he pitches, Williams thinks he is best utilized as a starter because of his size. “I'm really, really comfortable doing whatever they want,” he said. “(But) I feel I can utilize my strength and my build going seven or eight innings instead of one or two.” The Timber Rattlers began the Championship Series with Fort Wayne on Wednesday night. They won the opener 3-2. Williams is schedule to start game five, should it get to the point. “I would absolutely love it,” Williams said if he pitches in the series. “If it doesn't get to me, that's fine. As long as I get to celebrate with my guys. That's that gonna be a fun night.”
