Man dies from hanging in jail BY Wayne Gates The Brown County Press A prisoner in the Brown County Jail was found dead in his cell on Saturday, October 5. Zachary Ryan Goldson’s preliminary cause of death was hanging, according to Brown County Coroner Doctor Judith Varnau. Goldson’s death occurred after he attempted to escape custody after being treated at Southwest Regional Medical Center in Georgetown. According to police reports and 911 calls, Goldson attempted to escape from Brown County Jailer Travis Justice in the park-

ing lot of the hospital. Goldson also attempted to take Justice’s gun. The struggle was witnessed by hospital employees, one of whom called 911. “The deputy just had a prisoner out here and he was taking him to his car and they’re out there fighting.”, the caller told the 911 Operator at the Brown County Communications Center. Georgetown Police Officers Robert Gifford, Walt Griffith and Matthew Staggs responded and help secure Goldson. An incident report filed by Gifford lists the response time at 2:25 a.m.

and that the purpose of the call was “Assist BCSO Deputy Justice, who was assaulted by an inmate during a gun grab/escape attempt.” Goldson was secured and taken back to the Brown County Jail. At 2:58 a.m., a call for an ambulance was made from the jail. “Bring me a squad to the back sally port. The prisoner you just brought in is hanging.”, the female caller said. “He’s what?”, asked the 911 Operator. “Hanging”, the caller replied. An autopsy of Goldson is pending at the Mont-

gomery County Coroner’s Office. Goldson had been in his cell for less than thirty minutes after being returned from Southwest Regional Medical Center. The Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation is looking into the incident. Brown County Sheriff’s Office Chief Deputy John Schadle said the scope of the investigation will cover the time that Goldson left the jail for treatment until he was found in his cell. He said that the BCSO could not comment on the facts of the case because it was under investigation by BCI. CONTINUED ON PAGE 14

New owner in, Phillips Local doors locked out at Southwest Reg. in federal shutdown BY Wayne Gates The Brown County Press Doctor Krishna P. Surapaneni, (MD, FACOG) took ownership of Southwest Regional Medical Center from Joan Phillips on September 27. Phillips ended her association with the hospital last week. The circumstances of her departure and the final sale price of the hospital were not disclosed. "My whole interest in being in Georgetown was to provide quality health care close to home and jobs for the community. It is my hope that both of those continue.", Phillips told The Brown County Press. As things move forward, Surapaneni said “I will be fulfilling the roles of both President and CEO”. He added that he had hired Angela Holden as Chief Nursing Officer. Holden was recently working in the Dayton area. An online biography said that Holden had “over 20

years of nursing and administrative leadership. Her primary focus has been excellent clinical care delivery in a patient centered model.” Surapaneni said the next step for the hospital was to

add more doctors and improve infrastructure. “We are going to improve our emergency room services and in-patient services.”, he said. “We have also already signed contracts with two additional surgeons and we will also have two family physicians joining us. All four of them will be working for us between now and June of next year.” He added that he was talking with other healthcare providers in the area who could provide tertiary, or specialty care not normally found in a small hospital like neurosurgery. “We are working with different hospital systems in the area to see what tertiary care they can offer.”, Surapaneni said. “Our role here is to take care of the immediate needs of the community in a very effective way.” He said his goal is to have certain doctors on staff who could meet the medical needs of patients CONTINUED ON PAGE 14

BY Wayne Gates The Brown County Press Movement toward ending the shutdown of approximately 17 percent of the U.S. Government was being made at press time (Thursday, October 10). According to national news reports, House Republicans are considering a short term increase in the debt ceiling as a first step. If approved, such an agreement could lead to funding for suspended government services being restored. The “shutdown” is having an effect in Brown County. The USDA leases an office on South Main Street that houses eight federal employees. All have been furloughed. The building also houses the Brown County Soil and Water Conservation District. Those employees have been told by U.S. Government representatives that they can work in the building as usual...they just have to keep the doors locked and stay off

Oct. 23, to use the alternate number. Brown County Auditor Jill Hall said that there were no major problems with other federal funds coming to the county so far this month. Hall said that the situation may become more difficult if the shutdown lasts CONTINUED ON PAGE 14

Mt. Orab Ford Employee Salute!

ROGER JOHNSON Gabbard's Mt Orab Ford's Roger Johnson is our Lot Technician. On a Friday in 1995 Roger was at our parts counter when he heard Tom Glasscock mention we were looking for help in parts. He came in early the next Monday to see our Parts Manager, Dave McMillion, however, Dave was off that day. So Roger sat down with Ralph Gabbard. We needed someone responsible with a good driving record. Several people had applied, but Ralph made up his mind that Roger was the right man, and he was right, so Roger started on 6-21-95. After many years in parts, we needed a Lot Technician. We needed someone hard working and dependable. Roger Johnson is the very definition of a great employee, he does it all. He services and prepares the new vehicles, takes pictures of all new and used vehicles, and prepares all vehicles for delivery. Roger is a devoted family man with strong character. He loves hiking. It is our pleasure and honor to have him. We salute and thank you Roger Johnson.

Morrison then took the microphone and spoke a few opening comments.

Letters to the Editor

Use ballot box to settle water plant issue Dear Editor, This editorial is in response to an editorial supposedly written by Gene and Patricia Riley of Aberdeen (which appeared in your October 2, 2013 edition). Mr. and Mrs. Riley seem to have a revisionist view of the election of November 2, 2010 so I will state the truth. The vote on the issue was not by “a significant majority,” in fact it was very close. Secondly, Mr. and Mrs. Riley seem to have developed “amnesia” about the specifics of the entire issue. This couple seems to be dazed and confused, the public never voted “Not To Build” as they stated but they did narrowly vote to sell. This couple attacks only two council members for the vote to overturn the referendum results but fail to mention or address the fact that three other council members that voted the same way? The actual vote was five council members (Jason Phillips, Jay Castle, Jerry Applegate, Robert Hutchinson, and Hugh Hall) in favor of this motion (the same five voted to construct a water plant as well). A convenient but necessary omission on their part since their political clique supports Jason Phillips in the upcoming election! The fact is, during the previous campaign to sell the water system, the citizens of the village were deliberately misled into believing that the village water system would be sold to Brown County Water when the actual ballot lan-

guage said, “to the highest or best bidder.” This is the problem that the council, at that time, had. Anyone could have bid and gained control of the system. Brown County Water was not assured the highest bid and council was aware of several other non-water entities that were interested in bidding! Council members contacted the Ohio Attorney General who informed them that they had the power to amend or reject the voter referendum and they wisely did. To imply that any council, by a 5-1 vote, would deliberately overturn any election result without significant just cause is simply a cheap election-year ploy designed to take the focus off their horrible water agreement! The true cause of the lawsuits cited by Mr. and Mrs. Riley are the result of the current actions of four council members (Billie Eitel, Jason Phillips, James Perraut, and Robert Verville) who breached a legally binding contract and have nothing to do with the previous election cited. This assertion was very ignorant at best! Mr. and Mrs. Riley asserted that any punitive damages would be subject to a levy vote and that my comments were a “scare tactic”? On October 3, 2013, a hearing was held at Brown County Common Pleas court regarding the Shinn Brothers, the contractor that sued the village for breach of contract for $800,000, punitive damages assessment. At this hearing, Shinn

Brothers agreed to postpone the damage award until after the November election to see what direction the Aberdeen voters pursue and indicated that they would rather resume the project instead of penalizing the village. At this hearing Common Pleas Judge Scott Gusweiler commented, “Maybe, after the election, Aberdeen could get their act together,” a clear reference to resuming the project and removing this liability. Voters are to believe that a county judge will assign punitive damages against the village of Aberdeen but the voters of the village would be given the opportunity to vote to reject paying them? This council member and paralegal knows that is not how it works and your interpretation of the law is ludicrous at best. What’s amazing is that your political clique, evidenced by their voted actions, has no respect for legal obligations, contracts or even the citizens of the village and you are trying to educate me! The impending legal penalties are real and substantial and do pose a significant threat to the taxpayers of this village. To infer anything else is despicable you! I found the rambling paragraph about landlords and water payments to be somewhat incoherent but I think the gist was you implied that Mr. Applegate and Mr. Castle somehow are in league with the landlords. You failed to note that Mr. Applegate and Mr. Castle voted against this proposed agreement even though Ms. Mineer, a landlord, signed in favor. To my knowledge, the individual renters are responsible for paying their own water bills and this has nothing to do with landlords or any council members. Mr. and Mrs. Riley falsely attribute high water and sewage rates to Mr. Applegate and Mr. Castle but failed to point out that neither voted in favor of raising water or sewage rates. Truth be told, it was their political clique (Eitel, Phillips, Perraut and Verville) who approved these increases. I invite the public to view the minutes of the meetings to verify this statement. I think Mr. and Mrs. Riley have it somewhat reversed, it is council members Castle and Applegate that are truly trying to protect the public and their own political clique that is trying

to hurt them. The question is, at what point do council members cease to be relevant representatives and become agents of special water interests by championing a position or course of action that will damage the public that they are supposed to be representing? Mr. and Mrs. Riley your political clique is in desperation mode and running scared. Council member Eitel did not seek re-election, council member Perraut was appointed and would have a hard time winning any election, and council member Phillips faces an uphill re-election fight because so many citizens question his lack of true conviction of heart in regard to the issues. It was Mr. Phillips who reversed himself on the water issue (he seconded the motion to build the water plant and voted in favor of indebting the town for $1.9 million and then later switched his vote). It was Mr. Phillips who voted to overturn the results of the people’s referendum to sell the water plant. It was Mr. Phillips who recently voted to raise water and sewage rates. The mayor indicated to me last week that he probably won’t serve out his full term? So is the scenario they rush approval of this water agreement and then are all gone, leaving the new council and citizens with lawsuits and chaos? Nice! Your closing paragraph made absolutely no sense. It is most definitely is the responsibility of each council member to protect the public and this should be the most important principle of every decision they make. If you give away the water system it will destroy this village, we won’t have the funds for anything! It is my sincerest hope that the voters really think on this issue, it doesn’t matter which political clique that you adhere to, now is not the time to blindly follow anyone. The wrong vote could haunt this village for years to come. I hope you will support Jay Castle, Jerry Applegate, Bobby Meadows, and Phyllis Bishop in our bids for council seats. We will end the lawsuits, stop the bickering and do the right thing in behalf of the citizens. Respectfully, Jay Castle Member Aberdeen Village Council

Judith Ruthven honored by Chatfield Chatfield College recognized and honored the late Judith Ruthven October 5 by dedicating a newly constructed conference room in her name during a ceremony held in the St. Angela Hall. The room was filled with paintings and prints by world renowned artist John Ruthven of Georgetown, Judith’s husband. Chatfield has had an ongoing art show featuring of Ruthven’s work which is on display and for sale, with a portion of the proceeds going to Chatfield. The Ruthven’s were greatly responsible for the renovation of St. Angela Hall which began nearly two years ago and was just recently completed. “Judith was a board member for Chatfield for many years,” said John Tafaro, president of Chatfield College, “and she was an incredible person. Anyone who knew Judy knew that she was John’s partner in life and his biggest supporter. “But she was also his business manager, she was his art critic, his rudder, and she brought those same skills to Chatfield. She had good opinions. She didn’t voice them too often, but when she spoke, people listened and she had wonderful, wonderful perspective.” Tafaro continued, “She also loved Brown County and she loved Chatfield. She would have loved this building, which was another one of her passions, historic buildings and their

preservation.” Judith Ruthven was considered a true champion of Georgetown for her involvement in the renovation of several historic homes. She was instrumental in preserving Georgetown’s history and was involved in preservation of the US Grant Boyhood Home and pushed to have it listed as a National Historic Landmark which it was, in 2002.” Tafaro added, “This building, (St. Angela Hall) was acquired through the love and generosity of the Sisters of Ursuline, as we have many of our buildings. A couple years ago we began a renovation. The building was sound, but it needed a bit of TLC. Everything you see in this building, with the exception of the plumbing and the ramp is all donated labor and donated materials and was really a wonderful project that Judy would have loved and would have loved seeing what we’ve done with this 1861 building.” Tafaro explained that he and John Ruthven got together, shortly after Judith’s death, and a board member had donated some of Ruthven’s prints to Chatfield. “It just made since that this should be made the Ruthven room,” Tafaro said with a smile. “John called me a couple weeks later and said he had an idea he wanted to share with me and asked me to come out to his farm and bring a truck. He took me out to his barn where his wife Judy had collected all

It had so much character and was from the same era as this building.” A small plaque was on front of the mantle stating that it was a gift from Judith Ruthven. Tafaro spoke briefly about the John and Judy Ruthven Scholarship which has benefitted nine students of Chatfield since its inception in the 20092010 academic year. To date the scholarship fund is at $40,000. John Ruthven was then asked to say a few words. “I always compare this situation with Judy and Chatfield and all the other things she did to an opera, she was the star and I walked around the perimeter.”, Ruthven began. “Her bent in life was saving wonderful old things. It’s not that she wasn’t a modern person, because she was but she loved the history of this country and was a great patriot who loved the old buildings which meant so much to her. And here at Chatfield it fit the bill. This room here which has been dedicated to Judy is very significant to me. This dedication is a great honor and certainly would have been for Judy.”

POWER

Today I want to talk about the power of the resurrection. Go with me to Philippians 3:10-11 to see what Paul had to say about it: “That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death; If by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead.” With all the problems we have, it is hard to imagine that these bodies will someday be resurrected. And not only resurrected but resurrected brand new! There will be no more sickness, no more death, no more tears, and no more sorrow. We will never again grow old! The proof of the resurrection is Jesus Christ Himself. The disciples did not understand it and I do not think we fully understand it either. When Jesus died on that old rugged cross, the disciples felt totally defeated. They thought that He was going to set up the kingdom at that time. They had followed Him; they watched Him perform miracles; they believed He was going to be their king; but then He was crucified. Can you imagine how they felt? People that passed by as He hung on the cross thought He was a criminal, an outlaw. He was neither. Was He guilty of anything? Yes, He was. He had taken on all of our sin, our guilt, and our shame and paid the price for us. The Bible says in II Corinthians 5:21: “For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.” But how could that be? They thought He was their Messiah, their king, the one they had been waiting so long for, and now He was dead. Only one disciple stayed to witness the crucifixion; that was John. The rest had left in discouragement and great disappointment. That evening a man called Joseph of Arimathaea begged Pilate to give him the body of Christ. According to the book of Matthew, he wrapped it in a clean linen cloth and laid it in his own new tomb. He then rolled a great stone over the door of the sepulcher and departed. The women wanted to anoint the body of Jesus but did not have the opportunity to do so. Therefore, on the first day of the week, after the Sabbath was over, they went to the tomb carrying the prepared

spices and wondering how they could remove the stone. But, lo and behold, the stone was rolled away! Luke 24:3-6 tells us: “And they entered in, and found not the body of the Lord Jesus. And it came to pass, as they were much perplexed thereabout, behold, two men stood by them in shining garments: ...they said unto them, Why seek ye the living among the dead? He is not here, but is risen:...” They ran and told the disciples but the disciples did not believe them. Peter and John went to check it out. John did not go in right away but Peter did. John 20:3-8 tells us that they saw the linen clothes but the napkin which was about the head of Jesus was wrapped together in a place by itself. Peter observed that but it did not change his opinion. They both just turned away and went home defeated and frustrated. But Mary Magdalene just would not give up. She was weeping and wanting to find the body of Jesus. Looking into the tomb she saw 2 angels. They spoke to her and she to them. Then turning around she saw someone whom she thought was the gardener. She asked him where the body was, but, as soon as He spoke her name she immediately knew it was Jesus! He said: “...Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father:...” Then He told her to tell the disciples, she did, but they just could not believe. I wonder if the world today is any better off than the disciples were then. It seems to me that it is really hard for people to believe that Jesus Christ is risen, that He is alive, that He is indeed the resurrection and the life! But, ladies and gentlemen, Christians, because He lives, we will live also! One of these days we will have a body like unto His glorious body! But, for now, I am sorry to say, I must continue the rest of the story next week.

Healthy lifestyle programs Most know the Area Agency on Aging District 7 (AAA7) for the assistance we can provide with long-term care home and community-based services, programs and resources that are available in our ten-county district. Did you know that we also provide “Healthy Lifestyle Programs” to many of the counties in our district? These evidence-based programs help individuals learn to take control of their lives and manage health conditions. Thanks to a network of community coaches and members of our staff, these two programs are available in a number of communities throughout our ten-county district. The AAA7 offers services in Adams, Brown, Gallia, Highland, Jackson, Lawrence, Pike, Ross, Scioto and Vinton Counties. “A Matter of Balance” is an educational program that teaches practical strategies to reduce the fear of falling and increase activity levels. Participants learn to view falls as controllable, set realistic goals, change their environment to reduce risk factors, and increase strength and balance through exercise. Just recently, Ohio launched “STEADY U Ohio”, a statewide collaborative falls prevention initiative to ensure that every county, every community and every Ohioan knows how they can prevent falls, one step at a time. Part of the STEADY U Ohio initiative is expanding access to “A Matter of Balance” and the AAA7 is proud to be a partner and supporter in this initiative. The “Chronic Disease Self-Management Program”, or “Healthy U”, helps adults gain confidence in their ability to manage symptoms and understand how their health problems affect their lives.

who could benefit from the program are those with long-term health challenges such as asthma, arthritis, heart disease, diabetes, or other life-long conditions. The program emphasizes the persons’ role in managing their illness and building their self-confidence so that they can be successful in adopting healthy behaviors. Participants in the class learn to deal with pain, fatigue and depression; discover ways to be more physically active; learn how to eat healthier; learn better ways to talk about their health with physicians and family; set personal goals; and find ways to relax and deal with stress. Participants in Healthy U can represent an individual with a chronic disease, a caregiver of someone with a chronic disease, or someone who wants to learn more about healthy living. We are excited to offer these two wonderful programs to our communities. If you would like to learn more about these classes, or are interested in attending an upcoming class in your county, please call 1-800-5827277. If you would like to learn more about longterm care home and community-based services that are available in your community, please call our Agency at 1-800582-7277. Our Resource Center is available to anyone in the community looking for information or assistance with longterm care options and resources. We can even schedule an in-home assessment with a trained nurse or social worker at no cost to discuss these options and resources in more detail.

R-U-L-H superintendent asks Ripley Council to spread the word on levy can’t be spent on short-term supplies or anything like that because the improvements its used for have to last for five years.” Naylor said the district plans to focus those funds on its bus fleet which is extremely old and needs repair. It has passed this year’s inspection so they are safe to be on the road, but the district needs to begin replacing them. “A new school bus costs approximately $90,000, and we could probably replace two or three a year, but our intent is to replace one or two buses a year and use most of the rest of it for technology.” Naylor stated that the buildings in the district are fairly new, but with all the changes in technology, there are a lot of things that the students can not do because of infrastructure limitations. She said there are not enough

access points at the school. “We want people to understand that this is one of those levies that is going straight to the kids in this community,” Naylor said. “We believe this is our best chance to get our district up to date and better prepare students for college or a career.” Naylor asked council members to spread the word about the importance of the levy to the future of RULH students. Later, council had its first reading of an ordinance amending an ordinance of the village to eliminate the fee for coin operated amusement devices. Council approved another emergency ordinance authorizing the sale of personal property no longer needed for any municipal purpose by the Village of Ripley. Later in the meeting, councilman Scott Eagan

wanted to clarify the procedure to cancel council meetings. Apparently it was reported that the meeting scheduled for September was cancelled because of a lack of a quorum, but later rescheduled, then cancelled for a second time because of council members who were out of town or at the fair with their families. Eagan, stated that there should be some specific rules in place to follow before any meeting is cancelled. Village Solicitor, Jay Cutrell said council should address possible changes in meeting dates at the beginning of the year. It was recommended by Cutrell that the November 26 meeting, which is so close to Thanksgiving and the December 24 meeting, so close to Christmas should be cancelled. Council agreed.

In other business, Mayor Tom Leonard set the date for this year’s Trick-or-Treat night at Thursday, October 31 from 5:30 to 7 p.m.

BY Martha B. Jacob The Brown County Press After raising three children and putting them and two wives through college, all of whom graduated with degrees, Mt. Orab resident, farmer and contractor, Doug Link, decided it was his turn to go to college. “All three of my children and both my wives have college degrees and they all have successful careers,” Link said proudly. “I was the only one in the family without a degree. “They all worked hard and they’ve all made something of themselves. My kid’s mother and I are very proud about that.” Link explained that he had loved to read his entire life, from the time he was a three year old child. He said he felt a passion to learn things and felt like there was nothing stopping him from going back to school. So, in 1997, after his family was grown and out on their own, at the age of 45, he made the decision to go to college and at least get an associates degree. “I shopped around for the

right college and just fell in love with Chatfield,” Link said, “I had made several friends among the Ursuline Nuns and it just seemed like such a friendly place. Link continued, “I took liberal arts programs that were heavy in English and

psychology. I did receive my associates degree from Chatfield, then attended the College of Mount St. Joseph in Delhi, which is in the same consortium of colleges as Chatfield.” Link said at Mount St. Joseph he completed his bachelors degree in liberal arts with a minor in English. “And then from there I went on to the University of Cincinnati where I got my masters degree in American history,” Link said. “But I always knew, all the years working on my masters, that I wanted to come back to Chatfield and teach. That was my goal. I love the small classes and all the non-traditional students. I just love it here at Chatfield, and I knew it would be a wonder place to teach.” Link said that he had actually been told that there was a job waiting for him at Chatfield while he was in graduate school, so he didn’t actually have to apply. “I graduated in June of 2007 and I came here to teach in the fall of 2007 as an American history adjunct professor,” Link added, “and I’ve been here ever

since. What has changed now, is, in mid September I was hired full time as chair of the humanities department which includes history.” Link said that he still lives on his farm and still dabbles a little in carpentry. He said that as a professor at Chatfield, he hopes to inspire his students and increase their appreciation and understanding of history, and he hopes to help Chatfield meet the challenges of the future and maintain the Ursuline heritage. “I believe that the love of reading is one of the greatest things that parents can instill in their children,” Link said. “I know that becoming a good reader can be taught at an early age and should be encouraged. Parents should make sure their children see them reading and they also need to read to their children.” Link added that he knows from experience that it’s never too late to get an edu-

The superintendent of Ripley-Union-Lewis-Huntington School District, Linda Naylor, board treasurer Adam Zink, Mike Wright, president of the Citizens for RULH Students and Amanda Brannock, treasurer for the group, attended the October 8 Ripley Village Council meeting. Naylor wasted no time as she introduced herself to each of the council members and explained why she and the others had asked to be heard by council. “I have been on board at RULH since August first,” Naylor began, “We came to you this evening to share with you a little bit of information about the school levy that will be on the ballot. If you have any questions hopefully we can answer

them so that you can be informed. We would love to be able to call this levy a renewal or a replacement levy, but levy language won’t let us do that.” Naylor explained that there are two bonds coming off which will be retired in December, one is a 1.9 mil levy, the other is a 1.1 mil levy. They were for the building of the high school and athletics. “On the ballot is a levy for 2.6 mills,” Naylor said, “It will generate about the same amount as the two levies that are ending. It will generate about $245,000 for the district which will help make up for the loss from the rollback due to the Homestead Act. “We did not want to increase people’s taxes.

RED OAK NEWS

MARY HOWLETTE Congratulations to Miss Hallie Kimmy Fizer, Breanna Fizer, Rose Eckler, and Bobbi Jo Eckler for making the interim Honor Roll. *** Congratulations to each and every 4-H’er, FFA and FHA’er that participated in in projects for the Brown County Fair. I am very proud of you. *** Sadly, the Russellville area has lost another noteable personality, Leo Wietlauf. A hard-working man Leo went about his business in a quiet way. It was

told that Leo in his earlier years led a hobo's life jumping trains to find work. Leo and his blue truck always seemed to make one have a sense of reassurance that all was well. *** One of the activities that Mam-maw had desired to see over the weekend was the horse auction at the Adams County Trade Days held at the Adams County Fair Grounds. Well, we made it to the grounds, but neither girl was desirous to see a horse auction-that is not until Hallie's Mom and Dad arrived. Then after seeing two animals a donkey and a beautiful, beautiful horse, sell for nothing I had enough. *** I have some really sad

news and some good news: The sad news is that due to low attendance at both of the Decatur Churches, the Methodist and the Presbyterian, the Elders of both churches have decided to join forces and share Sunday worship services. As far as I am concerned this is good news because the Fall to Spring Bible Studies are attended by members of both congregations. The worship service which starts at 9:30 a.m. is led by much respected, informed, studied, learned, from the Bible to modern-day-life thought-provoking Kevin Jodrey. Kevin also speaks on Sunday morning at 8 a.m. at the uniquely beautiful Ash Ridge Church. You certainly are invited to visit any of these churches. ***

G’town UMC to host an evening of music The choir of the Georgetown United Methodist Church will present its second concert of Christian and Gospel music “Love Grows Here” on Sunday evening, October 20 at 7 p.m. The concert will be at the Methodist church at South Main and State Street in Georgetown. Introductory music by Steve and Glenna Smith will start at 6:50 p.m. The Choir consists of 20 members, all with extensive vocal experience. The concert selections are familiar tunes that the choir sang at services throughout the past season. Among the selections are “Morning Has Broken” and “In The Garden”, soloists are Mike Smith, Aimee German, and Megan Dunkin. The selections are upbeat with melodies that will have the audience humming as they leave the church. Jane Sininger will provide a flute accompaniment on two numbers. Methodists in Georgetown have always been singing. Back in 1820’s when the first Methodist Church was built; it was a log ho use across from the Grant Boyhood Home. They had only one hymnal so the congregation did “line singing” by rote. They did not have an organ or piano. Then in 1847 the First Methodist Church was built in the present location. The members began purchasing individual

hymn books for their families. Then in the 1860’s the lining of hymns was on the way out and the term choir was used for the “best” singers who sat in the first 2 rows of the church and led the hymns. It was then determined that the choir needed an organ so a melodian type organ was purchased in 1868. A pipe organ was purchased in 1911 and was such a wonderful addition to the church. A fire destroyed the organ and everything else in 1926. Only the walls were left standing but the members gathered together and rebuilt the church using the walls left fr om the fire. A dedication was held during the entire week of May, 1929 with much music by the choir every night accompanied by a small organ. Ada Sharp and Nell Brown were both in the choir at that time. A fine new electronic organ was purchased in the early 1950’s and is still used today. Jane Sininger and Glenna Smith both began accompanying the choir in 1964. Several other members of the present choir began singing in the children’s choir in the 1940’s and continued to sing in the adult choir for more than 40 years. Glenna Smith has directed the choir for over 35 years. Members of the current choir range from ages 27 to 90. Refreshments will be served after the concert in the fellowship hall.

There will be an Aberdeen Halloween Carnival set for Saturday, October 19 at the Aberdeen Community Center from 5 - 8 p.m. There will be games for all children all evening and a costume contest will begin at 6 p.m. Costume categories include prettiest, scariest, most original, best dressed couple and ribbons and prizes will be awarded.

H’ville students present a Reader’s Theatre

Students go to Columbus Conference

Hamersville second graders in Paula Rankin's class presented a fall Reader's Theatre for their families and friends on Thursday, September 19. Fall Reader's Theatre is a patriotic program consisting of songs such as Yankee Doodle and My Country 'Tis of Thee. As a choral group, students read poems about Martin Luther King Jr., George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, and our country's flag. Second graders recited the names of our fifty states and capitals. They read paragraphs about our state's motto, "With God all things are possible," and our nation's motto, "In God We Trust". It was truly a wonderful learning experience for students. Mrs. Rankin's class wishes to thank everyone who attended this year's fall Reader's Theatre. Your attendance was greatly appreciated!

Two students from Western Brown Secular Student Alliance (SSA) attended the annual conference in Columbus, Oh. The SSA meets every other week to discuss their shared values. This group is open to everyone and will give nonreligious students a place to talk with like-minded people, promote civil dialogue with religious students, and perform acts of kindness within the community.

ODNR adds online resource to help owners of small woodlots Approximately 200,000 Ohioans own a small woodlot (1-10 acres), and the number of owners is growing. The Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) has added an online resource to assist this growing group of smallwoodlot owners. “Small woodlots are important because they support wildlife, clean the air and water, and provide renewable forest products,” said Robert Boyles, state forester and chief of the ODNR Division of Forestry. “We hope smallwoodlot owners will find

The new small woodlot

Chatfield College offers a creative approach to teaching history Chatfield College faculty member Lonnie Brett Griffith is dedicated to augmenting his college level history classes with historical artifacts. Griffith, who teaches history and political science classes at the Catholic, liberal arts college’s Over-the-Rhine and Brown County campuses, is also a curator at the Ulysses S. Grant Boyhood Home and Grant Schoolhouse. In addition, the educator from Georgetown

volunteers as a living history presenter. Griffin finds that including artifacts in the curriculum “brings history to life. The students like the visual and hands-on experiences and have a chance to see things up close. It’s much more memorable than a picture in a textbook,” states Griffin. “I think of it as having the museum come to the students.” Students in U.S. History I classes at the private,

two-year college are currently studying the factors contributing to the American Revolutionary War. Griffin owns a collection of reproduction and original items from numerous eras of U.S. and world history. “I have many historical objects that correspond with every curriculum I teach. The Chatfield students respond well to my approach. My goal is to make classes as interesting and interactive as possible.”

Ohio Dept. of Natural Resources urges caution when burning debris Ohioans should be aware of the outdoor burning regulations and take necessary precautions if they plan to burn debris, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR). “We want to encourage people to be safe and responsible when conducting outdoor burns this season,” said Robert Boyles, chief of the ODNR Division of Forestry. “While Ohio does not typically encounter large fires like those in the Western states, when people are not careful with their outdoor burns they can create the potential for loss of property or life.” Ohio law states outdoor debris burning is prohibited from 6 a.m.-6 p.m. during October and November. Burning is limited in the fall due to the abundance of dry fuel on the ground from dried grasses, weeds and autumn leaves. Winds can make a seemingly safe fire become quite hazardous. Violators of Ohio ’s burn-

ing regulations are subject to citations and fines. Residents should also check Ohio Environmental Protection Agency regulations and consult with local fire department officials about burning conditions and safety considerations. If a fire does escape control, immediately contact the local fire department. An escaped wildfire, even one burning in grass or weeds, is dangerous. The ODNR Division of Forestry offers these safety tips for burning debris outdoors: • Consider using a 55gallon drum with a weighted screen lid to provide an enclosed incinerator. • Know current and future weather conditions and do not leave debris burning unattended. Keep suppression tools such as a charged water hose, shovel and a rake close by while burning debris. • Be informed about state and local burning regula-

tions. Homeowners living within incorporated limits should check with their fire department for local ordinances. Most incorporated areas do not allow open debris burning due to the close proximity of homes and businesses. Visit ohiodnr.gov/forestry and firewise.org for more information and tips on protecting a home and community. Remember, Smokey Bear says, “Only you can prevent wildfires!” The ODNR Division of Forestry promotes the wise use and sustainable management of Ohio ’s public and private woodlands.

Second graders at Hamersville School were captivated by September's Storyteller of the Month, Beth Bandy. While telling a story about going to the fair, Beth created a chalk drawing of the main show ring, and then turned the main ring picture into a ferris wheel. She demonstrated how to use geometric shapes to draw several pictures such as a mouse, a pig, a snail, and a rose. Students were fascinated as Beth drew a tractor and then turned it into a train. At the conclusion of storytime, Beth gave second graders a hand-out that shows the steps to draw the different pictures so students could enjoy drawing them on their own. Second grade classes at Hamersville wish to express their appreciation to Beth Bandy, September's Storyteller of the Month.

Programmed to fight for life This week I’m going to depart just a bit from our regular pharmaceutical topics. October is the anniversary of my daughter’s death, she passed away October 2, 2010. In honor of her I’d like to discuss endof-life matters. Before all of the advances in modern medicine, death used to be a more common occurrence. Most families lost at least one child and many women did not survive childbirth. Today, we expect someone to die in the hospital, not at home. We have both sanitized and vilified the process. We have removed death from being a part of life. The simple fact is that we all will one day die - it’s an inevitable result of being born. The topic I’d like to explore is death with dignity. The death of a child or young person is always a tragedy. We should do all we can to prolong their life, but at some point we no longer get as much benefit from all the effort we put into saving someone. All of our lives are finite; there is a big difference between dying at 7 or 70, but very little difference between dying at 68 or 70. As family members, we want the medical profession to do everything possible to save our loved one. No one wants to have someone that we love die, and think maybe there was something I could have done. Regret - or the fear of regret - preys on our minds. In reality, it is not a question of whether or not, but simply a question of when. None of us has the ability to forestall death forever. As we age our bodies get worn out. Our liver or kidneys no longer work as well as they used to, our bones are more brittle and our eyesight is not what it used to be. These are all part of the natural aging process. This is part of what makes it increasingly harder to successfully prolong a person’s life once things start going wrong.

A survey of physicians by Johns Hopkins found that over 80 percent would not want procedures like CPR, ventilation, chemotherapy or surgery if they had an irreversible brain injury. Doctors realize that these types of procedures rarely make a big difference in a terminal patient’s life span. The only procedure the majority of the doctors agreed on was pain medication. A discussion we need to have is whether we want a longer life or a better life. Most procedures at end of life will prolong life but will also increase suffering. Most people view CPR as the wonder procedure, but unless the patient is young and healthy and the heart stopped for some other reason (electrical shock, hit in the chest, etc.), CPR rarely works and when it does the patient has multiple cracked ribs. I understand those who would echo Dylan Thomas: “Do not go gentle into that good night. Rage, rage against the dying of the light.” Very few of us embrace death, we are programmed to fight for life. That’s what guarantees the survival of our species. Although it’s hard to think about our own deaths, here’s something to consider. When you imagine your own death, do you see tubes and machines and medical personnel, or a peaceful transition surrounded by your lovedones? This most personal of decisions should be our own to make.

will never contact you unexpectedly and request personal information, such as your Social Security or bank account number. If you do give out personal information tied to a potential scam, immediately inform your banks, credit card providers, and the three major credit bureaus. Never pay upfront fees. Government program representatives do not sell insurance or demand upfront payment, and navigators (individuals who can provide information about the ACA) are free. Remember: if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Promises about “free” medical devices may signal a scam. Get information from reliable sources. Watch out for phony websites or individuals who pretend to be associated with the government. Contact the Ohio Department of Insurance and the federal government if you have questions about the ACA. Report scams or suspicious activity to the Ohio Attorney General and Department of Insurance. Health Insurance Exchange: Watch for Bogus Websites The new federally-run health insurance exchange in Ohio is an online portal where consumers who need individual health insurance and small businesses can go to secure certain coverage. You can find more information about the federal exchange in Ohio by visiting www.healthcare.gov, which is the only website

where Ohioans can enroll. Bogus websites that purport to be part of the exchanges have been appearing online for more than a year. They often attempt to mirror the look of an official exchange website but they are not legitimate. Those behind the fake websites claim you can receive subsidies and purchase a policy. They attempt to collect personal information by asking visitors to complete online information forms. Navigators and Insurance Agents: Check for Certification Navigators, who must be certified by the Ohio Department of Insurance, were created by the federal law to provide information about the exchanges to consumers. Funded by the federal government, navigators are prohibited from recommending specific plans. Navigators who receive certification will be searchable on www.insurance.ohio.gov. Insurance agents can help Ohioans shop and enroll for exchange coverage, once they have completed training and are certified. Agents are permitted to recommend plans, which are generally those in which they have a contract with that insurer, and help people enroll. A list of Ohio-licensed agents is available at www.insurance.ohio.gov. Scammers can claim to be a government official or agent in an attempt to steal your personal information, including bank account number. Be certain to re-

view their licensure and certification status before beginning a business relationship. New Obamacare and Medicare Cards: No Such Thing You are not required to obtain a new insurance or Medicare card under the ACA. There is not an “Obamacare” insurance card and the ACA does not require Medicare recipients to sign up for new coverage to continue to receive benefits. Anyone who is a legitimate representative of the federal government should not ask you to provide your personal and financial information. One ploy involves unsolicited calls from scammers who claim to have your new “Obamacare” insurance card and they just need to get some personal information before they can send it to you. A variation targets those with Medicare in which callers say they need the person’s information so they receive their new Medicare card and continue receiving benefits. Ohioans who suspect a scam or an unfair business practice can either contact the Ohio Attorney General’s Office at 1-800-2820515 or www.OhioAttorneyGeneral.gov, or the Department of Insurance’s new ACA fraud hotline at 1-877-7276427. Those with questions about health insurance can call the Department of Insurance at 1-800-686-1526 or visit www.insurance.ohio.gov.

Learn more about beekeeping Cereal Rye – A Cover Crop with Feed Value? Over the past several years I have talked about the use of alternative crops for extending the grazing season to reduce the amount of hay we feed here in Southern Ohio. In the most recent CORN Newsletter one of my colleagues from Northwest Ohio discusses the use of Rye as a cover crop and potentially as a feed. Cover crops have also become more popular in recent years as we try to hold onto nutrients, so I think this article from Eric Richer will be good food for thought. We definitely have enough moisture after the rainy weekend to get things off to a good start. Keep in mind the dates will be a little different for us. Especially in the spring, everything will be a week or two earlier, if not more. In recent years, rye (Secale cereale L.), also known as cereal rye or winter rye, has been planted by producers as an entry level or “user friendly” cover crop. As a cover crop, it is a great nutrient recycler, soil builder, topsoil loosener, and erosion preventer. For dairy and beef producers, rye can also be considered for additional grazing or forage value. Based on surveys from several Northwest Ohio producers who have used rye as a spring feed source, it can provide additional feed tonnage on idle acres in a corn-soybeans rotation and with minimal effort or expense. According to the Ohio Agronomy Guide, rye is most winter hardy and earliest maturing cereal grain grown in Ohio. While spring rye-lage will not have the same feed value as corn silage, producers can evaluate its cost per pound of gain to see if it may fit in their total mixed

Based on feed analyses from five producers, the ranges for some key feed quality indicators on a dry basis were: yield of 2-3 T/ac, harvested at dry matters (DM) of 21-32% (avg. 27%), crude protein 8-18% (avg. 12.7%), total digestible nutrients (TDN) 53-63% (avg. 60.4%), net energy for gain of .24-.38 mcal/lb (avg. .34 mcal/lb), net energy for lactation of .54-.67 mcal/lb (avg. .63 mcal/lb), and relative feed value (RFV) of 71-121 (avg. 102). These analyses were from rye harvested the start of the boot stage all the way to full head, thus range in quality varies. How do you produce rye for rye-lage? Since many producers no-till soybeans and the planting window for soybeans is a little later, consider planting rye after silage corn or early harvested corn that is going to no-till soybeans in the spring. This timeframe fits well into many cover crop programs and one of the advantages of rye is that it will germinate up to November 1st on normal years. As with all of our crops, starting with a clean seedbed is very important. Fields with a history of winter annuals (i.e., marestail) need to have a cleanly tilled seedbed or follow Dr. Mark Loux’s “Burndown Suggestions for No-tillage Wheat” (C.O.R.N. 2013-30, Sept. 10-17, 2013). Rye planted for forage production should be drilled at a rate of 85-115 lbs/acre (more than typical cover cropping rates) and ideally planted by October 20th. Fertility

for high production rye is similar to wheat and starter fertilizer should be applied according to soil test results and the Tri-State Fertility Guide (see “Important Wheat Management Guidelines”, Lentz et al. C.O.R.N. 2013-30, Sept. 10-17, 2013). Producers should be sure to account for full crop and stover removal and consider fertilizing for the subsequent soybean crop. In livestock situations, manure may be incorporated in the fall in place of starter fertilizer. Of course, if you are just trying to scavenge nutrients, level of starter fertilizer use is up to the producer. In the spring, up to 50 lbs/acre of nitrogen can be top-dressed to increase production before termination. Mowing of rye at boot stage (mid-May) is most ideal for tonnage, feed quality, and palatability. Harvesting at this time reduces some of the concerns with rye limiting soil moisture and nitrogen to subsequent crops. Mowing can be done with a disk-bine or haybine, but drying can be a challenge. A chopper with a pick up head can be used to harvest the rye-lage at 25-30% DM (upper end of range preferred; low DM can result in excessive seepage and undesirable fermentation). Cut length should be adjusted to .75-1 inch for best results. Ryelage should be packed and covered similar to corn silage to maintain its quality. After rye harvest, soybeans can still be planted and normal yields realized. Learn about Beekeeping! Each year the Brown County Master Gardeners and the Fincastle Campus of Southern State Community College present a series of gardening seminars. All seminars are free and open to the public and meet

on the third Thursday of the month in the library from 6 to 7:30 p.m. On Thursday, October 17, Dr. Mike McHenry, current president of the Brown County Beekeepers Association, will give an introduction to beekeeping, what it takes to get into beekeeping and the benefits of beekeeping. This is a great opportunity to learn about pollinators and the delicious honey they produce! Other up-coming seminars include: November 21 Houseplants, January 16 Moving into a new Landscape, February 20 Native plants in your Landscape, March 20 Composting, April 17 Trees and Shrubs and May 15 Fairy Gardens. Sheep and Goat Webinar Dates Locations have not been determined throughout the state at this time, but the dates have been set. In the past, programs like this have been taught at several locations. Once locations are determined, I will pass that information along to you. The scheduled dates for 2014 are the Mondays in February. The program will start at 7 p.m. on February 3, 10, 17, and 24.

The University of Cincinnati Area Health Education Center (UC AHEC) Program and HEALTH-UC are presenting Improving Chronic Disease Management with Clear Health Communication, a one-day continuing education program for health professionals, on November 21st at the U.S. Grant Career Center in Bethel, OH. The purpose of this program is to provide RNs, social workers, and counselors with an overview of the Chro nic Care Model, the scope of the health literacy problem in the U.S., and strategies which they can use to communicate health information (both verbal and written) and self-management education more clearly with those people living with chronic disease who have lower health literacy levels. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), chronic diseases are the leading causes of deat h & disability in the U.S., accounting for 7 out of every 10 deaths per year in our nation. Also, about 75% of health care dollars goes to the treatment of chronic diseases. In the words of the National Health Council, “Chronic disease reaches into our homes, our hearts, and our wallets”. Self-management education, an important component of the Chronic Care Model, “complements traditional patient ed ucation in supporting patients to live the best possible quality of life with their chronic condition” (Journal of the American Medical Association, 2002). Over the past decade, there has been evidence that programs teaching self-management skills are more effective than information-only patient education in improving patients’ clinical outcomes.Health literacy is a person’s ability to read, unders tand, and act on health information. Currently in the U.S. almost half of the population has marginal levels of literacy at best. Low health literacy leads to less health knowledge and fewer healthy behaviors, poorer health outcomes, and greater health costs. So the importance of clear health communication with patients with chronic disease, particularly with those with lower health literacy levels, cannot be

Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine and Lieutenant Governor and Insurance Director Mary Taylor are warning Ohioans to guard against scams related to the Affordable Care Act (ACA), sometimes referred to as Obamacare, with open enrollment for the new federally-run health insurance exchange in Ohio running through March 31, 2014. Coverage begins Jan. 1, 2014 for those who select a plan by Dec. 15. “Scammers often pretend to be associated with the government to make their ploys seem real,” Attorney General DeWine said. “We want to warn Ohio families to be on guard for potential scams and to take steps to protect themselves.” “It’s imperative Ohioans understand the facts about the ACA and the federal exchange so they can best protect themselves,” Taylor said. “Because the federal law and the exchanges are new and complicated to consumers, Ohioans should be even more cautious about potential scams and fraudulent behavior.” Reports of ACA-related scams initially surfaced in Ohio over the summer. With consumers and small business representatives now shopping for exchange coverage, even more scammers may try to take advantage of people. Taylor and DeWine offered Ohioans the following tips to avoid scams: Guard your personal information. Legitimate government representatives

Barber said that he hopes other farmers in Brown County start using the cover crop program, but some farmers are not yet on board with the idea of leaving acreage sit for a growing season. The Barber’s and Rowe have worked closely with the Brown County Soil and Water Conservation District and the Natural Resources Conservation Service to install the farms grassed waterways, rock chutes and cover crops. By 2013, 90 percent of the row crop plantings on the farm have been no-till. In March

Susan and Brad Barber with C.J. Rowe move the freshly harvested soy beans into a silo. 90% of the Barber’s farm is no-till.

this year, more than 130 people visited their farm for Cover Crop Field Day, for landowners in Brown and Clermont Counties.

“We look forward to the future and we will continue to look for ways to improve our soil,” said Rowe.

Man dies from Local doors locked hanging in jail in federal shutdown CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 Jill Del Greco, Public Information Officer for the Ohio Attorney Generals’ Office, said that once the BCI investigation is complete, the case will be turned over to Brown County Prosecuting Attorney Jessica Little. Little would then decide what action, if any, to take depending on the facts uncovered by the investigation. Goldson was 24 years old and was listed as being from Reading, Ohio. He was in the Brown County Jail after being indicted by a Brown County

Grand Jury on Sept. 16. Goldson was charged with discharging a weapon across Delhi-Arnheim Road on August 24. He faced an additional charge of Having Weapons Under Disability because of a previous juvenile conviction for Burglary in Hamilton County in 2004. He also faced a charge of Unlawful Possession of Dangerous Ordinance because the shotgun he was using had been sawed off. Del Greco said she could not provide an estimate on when the investigation by BCI would be complete.

the award belongs to the people that Butterbee’s serves. “Our customers are very loyal and passionate about our brand. We believe that the loyalty they have blessed us with is the reason that we received this award. We consider them part of our family.” David also credited another major factor for the success of the restaurant chain. “Our employees are our greatest asset. They are the

fundamental building blocks of our success and they are great ambassadors for us. We couldn’t do it without them.” He added that the David family felt special gratitude for local residents who have been coming to the restaurant for almost ten years now. “Our Mt. Orab customers gave us our start and allowed us to be able to grow and expand to our Beechmont location. We’d like to thank them for our current and future success.”

CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 into November or longer. Mitch Sharp, Director of Brown County Job and Family Services had similar feelings, saying that there was no disruption expected in October for any JFS clients. Mt. Orab Mayor Bruce Lunsford said that the shutdown is having an effect on economic growth in the Brown County. “The Small Business Administration isn’t at work and that’s delaying some local projects from moving forward”, Lunsford said. He added that the shutdown was the latest symptom of a larger issue that many people have with Washington, D.C.. “I’ve had people tell me that they are ready to make investments or start on projects, but they are holding off because of the general uncertainty. Nobody knows what’s going to be happening six months or a year down the road.”, Lunsford said. In a telephone interview from Washington, D.C., Second District Congressional Representative Dr. Brad Wenstrup also talked about uncertainty being a frustration. “That’s the number one word and complaint that I hear from my constituents”, Wenstrup said. “People just want to know what to expect and be able to plan. Until they have some certainty, they are holding onto their investment dollars. That holds down the economy and keeps it from growing and creating jobs.” Wenstrup said that house members were working daily

to try and make a positive change to the situation. “We are passing resolutions every day to open up more and more of government and try to get more people back to work. Hopefully the Senate will take some of those up.” He then referenced the closure of well known national monuments. “This is an example of shutdown theater I guess you’d call it. We’re actually putting up barricades around memorials that are normally open for people to walk by.” Wenstrup said that, as a veteran, he was particularly upset by the barricading of the World War II Memorial in Washington, D.C. “You want to punish someone who is 90 years old and coming to visit the memorial that was built in their honor? I don’t know how anyone can feel good about that under any circumstances.” Wenstrup said he was hopeful that the situation would come to a successful end soon. “I hope that we come up with some sort of solution that rolls into the debt ceiling and that we get back to some regular order of business and we have some certainty.” He added that he was getting encouragement from the people of the second district. “People feel that we want to do things right and that we want to negotiate. People understand that yes, the President was elected, but we were also elected as representatives. We have a job to do and that is to sit down together and negotiate things out.”

As part of an ongoing effort to curb the misuse and abuse of prescription pain medications and unintentional overdoses, today Gov. John R. Kasich announced the adoption of new opioid prescribing guidelines for treating patients with chronic, non-terminal pain. Developed by the Governor’s Cabinet Opiate Action Team (GCOAT), and in conjunction with more than 40 professional groups, state licensing boards and state agencies, the opioid prescribing guidelines encourage Ohio’s clinicians to fully evaluate a patient’s situation before prescribing high levels of opioids for long-term use. “Drug overdoses have reached epidemic proportions over the past decade, and too many Ohio families have felt the pain caused by the misuse and abuse of prescription drugs. We have a serious problem and we can’t just sit back and hope things change without action. Together with the medical community, we’ve established new prescribing guidelines that will take another step to reverse this troubling trend and fix this problem,” said Kasich. Research shows that patients who receive higher doses of prescribed pain medications are at increased risk for overdose and need close supervision and periodic reevaluation. The new guidelines recommend that 80 milligrams Morphine Equivalent Daily Dose (MED) should trigger the prescriber to “press pause” and reevaluate the effectiveness and safety of the patient’s pain management plan. The guidelines are intended to supplement, and not replace, the prescriber’s clinical judgment. “It is often said that the first rule of medicine is to ‘Do no harm,’” said Dr. Ted Wymyslo, director of the Ohio Department of Health and co-chair of the GCOAT Professional Education Workgroup. “Following these prescribing guidelines will help Ohio’s clinicians treat their patients for chronic pain and improve their quality of life while

addressing the risk of a deadly overdose.” When prescribing an opioid, pharmacists must record the prescription in the online Ohio Automated Rx Reporting System (OARRS). These new guidelines encourage prescribers to use the data in OARRS so that they will know how much pain medication a patient already is receiving, perhaps from multiple prescribers. A new OARRS tool launched with these prescribing guidelines assists prescribers by calculating a patient’s opioid prescriptions into a single MED score for comparison to the 80 MED threshold. The guidelines also strongly advise prescribers to talk with their patients about managing their chronic pain, the risks of an unintentional overdose from their prescription pain medication, the potential for pain medication abuse, and secure storage of their pain medications to prevent misuse by others. A new a prescriber-focused website – opioidprescribing.ohio.gov – will help prescribers learn more about the guidelines. The site also includes resources prescribers can use to incorporate the guidelines into their daily practice; a continuing education video education module, a toolkit and patient resources. “Developing these guidelines was a long, thoughtful process and we couldn’t have done this without the collaboration and cooperation of the medical community,” said Dr. Bonnie K. Burman, director of the Ohio Department of Aging and co-chair of the GCOAT Professional Education Workgroup. “We are overwhelmed by their support and know that, together, we’ve adopted guidelines that can save lives.” The guidelines for all opioid prescribers build upon the Kasich Administration’s ongoing efforts to fight prescription drug abuse. In 2011, Gov. Kasich signed House Bill 93 to shut down “pill mills.” In 2012, the Administration adopted prescribing guidelines for emergency departments and acute care facilities. Thus far in 2013, the Ohio State Highway Patrol has seized nearly 50 percent more pills than the 2010-2012 average.

least nine plants which includes sun flowers, Ethiopian cabbage, pearl millet, sunn hemp, tillage radishes and others. He stated that as the cover rots during the winter it brings up nutrients from the ground and acts as a fumigant against disease and insects. He added that his soil has already increased in organic matter by half or three/fourths which could yield $40 to $50 more per acre. Brad is the third generation of his family to farm in Brown County. C.J. Rowe is an Ohio State graduate where he received a degree in Crops Science with a minor in Ag Science. “We are excited about how well this cover crop program is working by increasing the organic matter,” Brad Barber said. “Of course it has an initial investment, but we feel that every year we are leaving the soil in better shape than it was when we started. So eventually we will begin to see higher yields from our fields. “We have also implemented soil erosion prevention with grass waterways and rock chutes. Our focus, all the way, is to improve the ground we farm.” Barber explained that grass waterways on his property are very useful cleaning up erosion run-off from some of the herbi-

The Delta Queen Steamboat a step closer to renewed operation House votes to reinstate exemption of regulation keeping ship docked Cincinnati’s Delta Queen may once again navigate the Ohio River if today’s House of Representatives passed bill becomes law. Representative Brad Wenstrup, an early cosponsor of H.R. 1691, supports reinstating a longstanding grandfather clause for the historic boat from regulations passed after it was built. The exemption expired in 2008 and has kept the boat docked in Chattanooga in recent years. A lifelong Cincinnatian, Wenstrup said “This

DR. BRAD WENSTRUP US CONGRESS vote is a crucial step to get the Delta Queen back on America’s rivers. The boat represents an iconic part of Cincinnati’s history on the Ohio River, and I look forward to the day it will once again dock in the Queen City. I appreciate Steve Chabot’s leadership on this important effort.” Rep. Steve Chabot, who also represents Cincinnati, sponsored the bill. The Delta Queen began operations in Cincinnati in 1948 and

was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1989. The bill passed the House by a vote of 280 to 89 and next heads to the Senate.

A few months ago I made my first trip to Mount Vernon. As I stood on that high bluff overlooking the Potomac River I could only imagine what world leaders had taken in the same view. Washington, like any hardworking gardener, was proud of his place. He intended his garden to be both bountiful and beautiful. Dean Norton, who has been director of horticulture at Mount Vernon for more than 30 years, led members of the Friends of the Ohio Governor’s Residence and Heritage Garden through the restored gardens. Washington was keenly interested in modern farming techniques and the latest gardening styles. The first president read widely, including works by the influential English garden designer Batty Langley. Although Mount Vernon’s 6 acres of gardens are far more extensive than the average American gardener’s plot, Washington was operating on a much smaller scale than Langley and other English gardening experts whose advice he followed. To adapt 18th century gardening styles to his own landscape, he had to cut them to fit. Mount Vernon’s production of vegetables, fruits, and herbs was Washington’s priority, but he also wanted his gardens to reflect his own

sensibilities. He was ever on the lookout for beautiful or interesting specimens. Over the years Washington developed five different gardens at Mount Vernon. The first – the landscape garden- included the bowling green and its surrounding serpentine walks, which visitors see as they approach the mansion. The other four gardens were essential to the estate because of the vegetables, fruits, and herbs they produced: the upper garden, which included a greenhouse; the lower garden, which served mainly as the kitchen garden; the botanical garden, where Washington experimented with new plants’ and the fruit garden and nursery, which contained fruit trees and assorted planting of grass crops, green, and vegetables. Sadly, it was raining the day we visited the gardens, and our tour was cut short. I am anxious to return to Mount Vernon and explore the entire estate on a sunnier day.

THE BROWN COUNTY PRESS

WB ‘excited’ for sectionals BY Brandon Barb The Brown County Press This season has been a successful one for the Western Brown Lady Bronco volleyball team. Both a record of 18-4, and being second in the Southern Buckeye Athletic Conference are good indicators that the Broncos have had a good year. Western Brown junior Makaela Ficsher has been a very strong front row player and the most consistent blocker for the Lady Broncos, according to head coach Carla Fite. Fite’s top three hitters throughout the season have been Ficsher, senior Kasey York and sophomore Sugaree Schaffer. “Overall the season has gone very well,” Fite said.

“We had an upset loss against Norwood that went four sets. It was disappointing but I thought that was the first night we didn’t really play as a team.” The match against Norwood went 25-14, 16-25, 2519, 25-11, and knocked the Lady Broncos down to second in the league. “That loss gave them a good spark to get back into their rhythm,” Fite said. “We won 26 straight league games, and Norwood was fired up to come out and get us, and they did. We just didn’t come out to play as much as they did.” The unexpected loss served as a wake up call for Western Brown, as they got back on the winning track beating Goshen, New Richmond and Amelia to finish

out the regular season. It took three sets for the Lady Broncos to beat the New Richmond Lions on Oct. 8, 25-11, 25-14, 25-15. “We had a lot of good passes and hits, and very few errors,” Fite said. Now the Lady Broncos are focused on their first sectional matchup. “We’re playing well, overall they looked good and I hope they keep it up for Loveland,” Fite said. “For the tournament we’re going to have to be ready to cover our hitters because Loveland is going to be a strong blocking team, so that is going to be our biggest focus.” According to Fite, Loveland will be a competitive team for the Lady Broncos. “If everyone is ready to go out on the court and play 100

percent the entire time, then it will be a competitive match,” she said. If the Broncos can get past Loveland, they will play either Sycamore or Western Hills. Each will be a Division I challenge for Western Brown but the girls should be ready for it. “The difference between a lot of the SBC schools we play and the schools in the tournament, is there isn’t a lot of blocking from them,” Fite said. “When we play these DI schools we will have to cover our hitters and be ready to pop the ball back off the block.” Fite continued, “The girls are excited about playing the larger schools. If they do what they’re supposed to, we should be competitive.”

Lady Warriors plagued with injuries, but still finished regular season with tough play BY Sabrina Mignerey The Brown County Press The Eastern Lady Warrior soccer team battled the Ripley Lady Blue Jays on Friday, Oct. 4 and came out with a victory of 4-1. Three goals were scored by Eastern sophomore Kayla Tomlin and one goal by junior Courtney Bellmon. When asked about the teams outing on Friday, head coach Sara Koehler responded by saying that she feels

the team played well. Trailing 1-0, the team came back to beat the Blue Jays. The Lady Warriors made it tough for the opposition to score, and maintained the majority of possessions during the game. Koehler also mentioned that their normal keeper was not in the game, and the keeper of the game, Molly Prine, is credited with eight saves. Koehler said that the play of Prine was reflected by all of the girls on the team. “The team

is playing really hard.”, she said. The Lady Warriors are short on players, with 13 healthy girls (some playing through injuries) playing and two players with ACL tears. The short roster makes it tough sometimes to keep up for the whole 80 minutes of play. Every game is a battle for the Lady Warriors but they are playing very well, and they say they are up for the challenge. Koehler feels that one of the team’s strengths is

their defense, and believes they have a good core. She would like to see the team work on keeping possessions, though. The Lady Warriors soccer team consists of 17 girls, with a good mix of classes. There are four seniors on the team and Koehler finds the seniors extremely beneficial in how their talented leadership can help the rest of the team.

BY Brandon Barb The Brown County Press Coming off of their win against Williamsburg on Oct. 8, the Georgetown Lady G-Men have some momentum heading into their sectional tournament where they are the 19th seed. “We came out and played hard,” Georgetown Head Coach Ashley Corlin said. “When people look at our record they think we have had a rough season, but when you compare scores there has been a tremendous improvement from last year.” Against Williamsburg, the Lady G-Men scored four goals, two coming from senior Kiersten Adkins. “We just moved the ball well,” Corlin said. “There are players who stood out

but everyone played hard. Everyone played together as a team.” The Lady G-Men are improving but it is hard to do so “when there are players who have never played before” and they play schools with players who play year round. “I think the biggest thing for the girls is that they tend to think some of the bigger schools we play, they know they play soccer year round, and are more skilled than they are and they go in with their heads down,” Corlin said. “We just don’t have much self confidence so far. We’ve had four wins, which is more than we had last year. Its a huge accomplishment for us.” Throughout the season the Lady G-Men have kept things close through every game, which during last season they were los-

ing by eight or nine points, so the program is slowly improving but its hard to recruit players. “Its hard to recruit players for soccer. A lot of students are involved in other sports, and most of the ones I get haven’t played before. So its a challenge,” Corlin said. At the end of the year, Corlin will lose seven seniors to graduation. The GMen should improve their playing again next year as well. “They are capable of things they don’t know they are,” Corlin said. The Lady G-Men are the 19th seed in the Southwest District, Division III. According to Corlin, they will take on Summit Country Day on Oct. 17 at 7 p.m. at Summit. “We’ll go out, have fun and play hard. Anything is possible,” Corlin said.

Western Brown senior Jarred Haggerty (23) caught eight passes for 117 yards against Goshen Oct. 4. The Broncos won the game 55-21 and improved 6-0 and are first in the Southern Buckeye Conference.

WB Broncos race by Goshen with passing attack BY Brandon Barb The Brown County Press Western Brown continues to enjoy their undefeated football season after the Broncos beat the Goshen Warriors 55-21 on Oct. 4. The victory comes as the Broncos crack the top ten in state football rankings in a big way. The team is ranked number two in state division three, Region ten. New Richmond is in 9th place and Goshen in 13th in Region ten. The Broncos’ senior quarterback Devyn Wood accounted for 42 of the 55 points at Goshen, mostly through the air like he has done all season. Wood threw for 574 yards against the Warriors, on 36 completions with five touchdowns. He also ran for 69 yards and two touchdowns. Wood is still leading the northern Kentucky and Cincinnati area high school quarterbacks in passing yards with 2,449.

“It shows how hard our offense as a team works,” Wood said. “It all starts with the five guys up front, and they do the best they can. And our receivers can catch the ball and are able to get yards after the catch, which makes it so much easier. I owe a lot of my yards to those guys.” Wood has a wide receiver core who can pick up extra yards after the catch and three of them had big games against Goshen. Eean Hornung hauled in 11 passes for 190 yards and two touchdowns, Jarred Haggerty caught eight balls for 117 yards and junior Christian Dawson reeled in seven passes for 150 yards and two touchdowns. Nick Osborne had the fifth touchdown reception. “Our receivers played very well as a unit,” Western Brown Head Coach Evan Dreyer said. “We only had a few dropped passes and offensively it just seemed to click. Our tempo and conditioning was very good and served us well.”

WBJHS Broncos battle the Indians and Barons The Western Brown 7th grade football team was defeated by the Norwood Indians, 20-12. The team showed much improvement from the previous week but turnovers were the difference in the Indian victory. Derek Spears rushed for two touchdowns for the Broncos but it wasn't enough to secure the win. The team then played host to the Amelia Barons and once again showed great improvement but turnovers plagued the team as the Broncos gave up the ball five times to lose 32-20. Spears again rushed for a touchdown while Josh Taylor added one as well. Taylor also connected with Derek Terrill on a touchdown pass and also hit Daniel Newberry with a two-point conversion. Taylor also had one interception and Ty Crall recovered a Baron fumble. The team's record now stands at 1-5 on the year with one game remaining. The Western Brown 8th

grade football team split their last two games falling to Norwood 25-0 and then defeating Amelia 28-0. Against Norwood the team simply couldn't generate any offense, and with five turnovers, was unable to find the end zone. The team then bounced back and defeated the Barons of Amelia. Defense once again lead the team forcing three turnovers. Jacob Haggerty's 1st quarter pick six got the Broncos on the board early. An interception by Sterling Cole and a Haggerty fumble recovery stopped three potential Amelia scoring drives. A balanced offensive attacked from the Broncos added two 4th quarter touchdowns to seal the win. Seth Becker, Wyatt Fischer and Zach Stacy each run for a touchdown, while Becker connected to Jordan Snyder and Stacy for two point conversions. The team now stands at 4-2 on the year with just two games remaining.

“They ran their routes to the best of their ability and when someone did catch a ball the others went and blocked down field, which really sprung a lot of those big plays we had,” Wood said. With such a high powered offense, some teams have had a hard time stopping the Bronco passing attack and the remaining teams on their schedule might have the same problem. “We don’t think anyone can defend against our pass game,” senior and sophomore offensive linemen Kalan Kumpf and Steven Craddock said. Even though the Broncos got the win, it took a little bit of regrouping for them to break away from the Warriors. “The first half we didn’t play up to our potential, but the second half we played really well though,” Dreyer said. Goshen pulled within striking distance of the lead in the third quarter when the score was 27-21, but the Bronco offense overwhelmed the Warriors by going no huddle and firing off rapid passes -- which some turned into long runs after a few crafty moves by the Western Brown receivers. “During the second quarter

we didn’t get our assignments and missed tackles in space, very fundamental football, Dreyer said. “When you miss tackles and don’t make blocks its very hard to play sound football.” Dreyer continued, “The way we came out in the second half, with our energy and enthusiasm was tremendous.” When the offense was kept from the end zone, the Bronco field goal unit was able to keep scoring points. Western Brown kicker Blake Silvis was two for two on field goals, and seven for seven on PATS. “Our field goal unit improved throughout the game as well,” Dreyer said. “Getting the six points and PATS from them was huge.” There is still room to improve though, according to Dreyer. “We have to realize that we can’t give up big plays and expect to be a very good defense. We have to get turnovers early, and make sure we are playing sound football,” he said. The Broncos are leading the Southern Buckeye Conference and are undefeated within league play. Their next league game is against Amelia on Oct. 18, at Amelia High School.

The Lady Rocket volleyball team has clinched the Southern Hills Athletic Conference, Division II title and are heading into the Division IV sectional tournament as the number one seed. This is the second straight year that Fayetteville has won the division, and the fourth time in five years. "I’m was really pleased we received first place bids," Fayetteville Head Coach Sharon Sheets said. “Now its time to get to know our opponents, because its really new to us.” The Lady Rockets were moved to a new division for the tournament with teams they’ve never played before, so Sheets and company are entering uncharted territory. The girls in green will face 10 seed Aiken in their first match of the tournament. “We don’t know much about them [Aiken],” Sheets said. “But their record may not express what kind of team they are, so we have to be prepared for every situation.” Aiken’s regular season record is 1-13, with their only win coming against Woodward in five sets. Fayetteville ended their regular season schedule by going 6-0 from Oct. 1 to Oct. 10, but not every match was ended in three sets for the Lady Rockets. The West Union Lady Dragons took the Rockets to five sets on Oct. 8. “It was a great game to have heading into the tournament. That’s what style of volleyball we will have to play,” Sheets said. “We fell behind, but they played with their hearts and focused to get the job done.” Sheets continued, “West Union is a very good hitting and defensive team. We were giving them everything and they were hitting it back

at us. Both teams were just whipped at the end.” The match sets went 24-26, 31-33, 25-15, 2514, 15-8, with the Lady Rockets pulling it together for the win. “Every point was crucial,” Sheets said. It was also senior night against West Union, and the Fayetteville seniors played their best game of the season. Sydney Sheets had a season high 45 assists, and a career high 13 digs. Gabby Valentine tied her career high of 16 kills. Carly Burroughs had a season high 13 kills and tied the school record of seven blocks. Claire Carson had career highs of 57 attacks, 16 kills and 17 digs. Sydney Sheets also became the all time assist leader at Fayetteville by reaching 1552 career assists, during her three years of varsity volleyball, after the Whiteoak match. The Lady Rockets know they have their work cut out for them in the tournament, but Sheets is confident this could be the year they win the championship. “We just have to keep that momentum going,” she said. “[My] fingers are crossed this will be our year. These girls have played the last three years together, but there is something about this team I can’t put my finger one. I think we’re better prepared and more mature as a team.” But it comes down to the Fayetteville girls just showing up and doing their best. “I’m just really pleased with the girls’ attitude and teamwork this season,” Sheets said. Fayetteville’s first game in the tournament is against Aiken at Mariemont Junior High School Oct. 16 at 6 p.m.

The Lady Rockets came out on top with a score of 4-0; Three of the goals being scored by junior Sidney Flora, one goal by junior Kourtney Bosom and Carey Smith the keeper being credited

with the shut out. The Lady Rockets decided to surprise injured senior Ashley Moore on by allowing her to kick the game ball to start the game, being held up by the other two seniors on the team. The trio has played together since instructional leagues. The team wanted to send a gesture that she is still a valuable part of the team.

The Brown County Press - Sunday, October 13, 2013 - Page 19

BY Brandon Barb The Brown County Press Fayetteville-Perry’s football team is back on the winning track after beating Dayton, KY 3312 on Oct. 4, and its thanks to their seniors. “We were focused on winning and the results show. Its a credit to our seniors,” Fayetteville Head Coach Nathan Geers said. “They made the choice to learn from the loss and move. We didn’t play our best against Grove City Christian, and it was because of thing we could control. They [the seniors] made the choice it wasn’t going to happen again.” The Rockets lost 3514 to Grove City Christian Sept. 27, but the team used it as motivation to play the best football they could. “With a loss you can do two things, mope and cry about it or you can get better from it. The 10 seniors came out and got everyone focused for Dayton,” Geers said. “We had the best week of practice we’ve had all year, and we had our best game of the year.” Geers said the seniors, and the rest of the team, understand how they have to play to win games -- and it starts with practice. “When we practice well, we’re 4-0. When we don’t have good weeks of practice, we lose. We understand if we practice well we will put ourselves in the position to win on Friday night,” Geers said.

Defense and passing helped the Rockets win against Dayton. For most of the season, the Rockets have been run heavy but they were able to move the ball down field by passing this time. Sophomore quarterback Cole Schaefer had 61 yards and one touchdown through the air. The touchdown came during the hurry offense, when the Rockets were trying to score before half-time. “It felt good to see the passing game click,” Geers said. “Our quarterback threw a lot of nice balls, and we made some tough catches. We’ve been emphasizing that we don’t want to be a one sided team, we can’t just run the ball.” The Rockets had 250 total yards on the ground. Senior fullback Jacob Laney had 95 yards and one touchdown. Senior running back Andrew Dowers ran for 65 yards, two touchdowns and he hauled in his 6th interception on the year. The other rushing yards came from sophomore Caleb Dowers who had 50 and one touchdown, senior Cody Shaw had 20 and Schaefer had 20 yards as well. The Rockets improved to 4-2 -- the program’s best record -- after beating Dayton. Geers is happy with their current record, but says they aren’t going to stop any time soon.

It was good for the Rockets as they head into the sectional tournament, where they are the 14th seed in the Division III southwest district. “We go up against number 8 Cincinnati Christian, so its going to be a battle the rest of the way, but we continue to get better everyday.” FayettevillePerry coach Jason Iles said. It is Iles’ first year as the Rockets head coach, and it has been a successful one so far. The win against the Blue Jays put Fayetteville 8-6 on the year. “We’ve been very successful with the change,” Iles said. “With this being

my first year as head coach, the kids have adapted to my program and philosophy of soccer. And I’m proud of each kid.” There are 21 teams in Fayetteville’s sectional, and four of those are ranked in the top 10 within the state of Ohio. “At some point we may run into a buzz saw but we take one game at a time,” Iles said. “On any given night I would take our team over any other.” As far as the game against Ripley goes, it wasn’t all goals for the Rockets. “We were a little sloppy to start, but I thought we settled in about midway through the first half,” Iles said. “It was a physical game. Ripley brings a nice team to the table even though their record is not what you would generally see, but a very good physical Ripley team. Shout out to their coach and pro-

gram as they begin to rebuild.” The Fayetteville goals came from sophomore Max Iles who had three, junior Ian Russo, junior Scottie Mullis and senior exchange student Gonzalo Rojas. The final score was 6-2. According to Iles, Max Iles “anchors the team.” He scored his 16th goal on the season during the win against Ripley, and he still has two more years to play for the Rocket program. Even though he didn’t score, sophomore Tyler Brinkman did record an assist. He has also been a big factor in the Rockets’ success this season. “Brinkman was a midfielder and forward when I came in, and I kind of pushed him back to the sweeper and he’s taken the role on quite nicely,” Iles said. There some were areas of the game that didn’t please Iles too much.

“We played well at times, and the four seniors who were out there set the tone for our program,” Iles said. “I had the opportunity to watch some of the younger guys get some minutes tonight and that was nice to see.” Iles went on, “I’m not happy with the defense. They scored two goals and I’ve been trying to stress defense each and every game this years. We also have to get better with our communication and our overall team work. Even though the regular season is over, Iles still has 21 guys fighting for the 11 starting positions, which means the players are focused on that next game instead of looking ahead to the another sport they play. “No one has given up, and I haven’t seen anyone start to get ready for that next sport,” Iles said.

Antlerless only deer muzzleloader hunt season this weekend doors and help manage the state’s deer herd,” said Scott Zody, chief of the ODNR Division of Wildlife. “Hunters should be aware that no antlered deer may be killed during this weekend, regardless of hunting implement.” In addition to this added antlerless season, an extra half hour of prime hunting time after

sunset was added to all gun seasons this year to give hunters more golden opportunities in the field. Hunting hours are now 30 minutes before sunrise to 30 minutes after sunset. It is legal to hunt antlerless deer statewide with a muzzleloader or bow during this two-day season. No antlered deer may be harvested regard-

less of hunting implement. Antlerless deer include deer without antlers and deer with antlers less than three inches in length. All hunters, excluding waterfowl hunters, are required to wear a vest, coat, jacket or coveralls that are either solid hunter orange or camouflage hunter orange. Hunters will be able to

use antlerless permits and either-sex permits during this two-day season. A new tagging procedure administered by the ODNR Division of Wildlife requires hunters to make their own game tag to attach to a deer. Game tags can be made of any material (cardboard, plastic, paper, etc.) as long as it contains the hunter’s name, date, time and county of the kill. Go to the Deer Hunting Resources page at wildohio.com for more information on changes to the game check process. All hunters must report their deer harvest using the automated game-check system. Hunters have three options to complete the game check: • Online at ohiogamecheck.com; • Call 877-TAG-ITOH (824-4864); • Visit a license agent. A list of agents can be found at wildohio.com or by calling 800WILDLIFE. Game-check transactions are available online seven days a week, including holidays. Landowners exempt from purchasing a deer permit, and other people not required to purchase a deer permit, cannot use the 877-TAG-ITOH option. The ODNR Division of Wildlife remains committed to properly managing Ohio ’s deer populations through a combination of regula-

tory and programmatic changes. Progress toward reducing locally abundant herds can be expected. Strides have been made to reduce deer herds in many counties closer to target levels. Ohio hunters are encouraged to hunt more does this season to help the needy in their area. The ODNR Division of Wildlife is working with Farmers and Hunters Feeding the Hungry (FHFH) to help pay for the processing of donated venison. Hunters who donate their deer to a food bank are not required to pay the processing cost as long as funding for the effort lasts. More information about this program can be found online at fhfh.org. Deer hunting in Ohio continues to be a popular activity for many who enjoy the outdoors. Ohio hunters checked 218,910 deer during the 20122013 season. Ohio ranks fifth nationally in resident hunters and 11th in the number of jobs associated with hunting-related industries. Hunting has a more than $853 million economic impact in Ohio through the sale of equipment, fuel, food, lodging and more, according to the National Shooting Sports Foundation’sHunting in America: An Economic Force for Conservation publication.

Employers, you probably already know that healthier employees are more productive on the job. But did you know that at least 20% of your health care costs as an employer are in areas of health risks which can be changed, such as high blood pressure, tobacco use, physical inactivity, obesity, high stress, and depression? Employers who provide wellness programs for their employees can reduce these risks and also reduce absenteeism and presenteeism, cut health care costs, reduce employee turnover, and improve workers’ productivity and morale. However, smaller and medium-sized businesses often don’t have the extensive resources of larger corporate businesses and might think that they can’t support employee wellness programs. Therefore, the AdamsBrown Creating Healthy Communities Program, the Adams-Brown Diabetes Education Coalition, & the University of Cincinnati AHEC Program (HEALTH-UC) are cosponsoring “What’s Working in Worksite Wellness”, a one-day conference designed specifically with small and medium-sized employers in mind, on Wednesday, November 13th, from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. The Conference will be held at Hilltop Designs, 9764 Tri-County Highway, Winchester, OH. Conference topics include an overview of worksite wellness, its benefits to employers and employees, and how to get started; practical strategies for encouraging employees to be more physically active on the job; the obesity dilemma and its effects on the workplace; simple ideas for improving nutrition at the worksite; and the importance of tobacco control on the job. You will also hear from a panel of local employers who have been conducting their own worksite wellness programs for their employees, and we’ll have resource tables set up throughout the day with materials to help you.One of these resources about which you’ll learn more during the conference is the Health & Wellness Grant for businesses which is now available from the Bureau of Ohio Workers Compensation. So in this day of increas-

local judges and courts have been faithful members, as have the Brown County Health Department, Southwest Regional Medical Center, and Air Evac Lifeteam, We’ve been lucky to have the support of some local businesses such as Rumpke, Inc. and of our local newspapers. And both of our state legislators, Rep. Doug Green and State Senate Joe Uecker, have been very helpful as well. Finally, we’ve had some very dedicated community volunteers such as long-time Georgetown resident Pat Hopkins, who’s been a faithful Coalition member since the beginning of our program back in 2000! Beginning this month, the Brown County Safe Communities Coalition will plan and conduct activities to increase seat belt use, prevent drunk and drugged driving, promote motorcycle safety, and prevent distracted driving. The Coalition will also continue its emphasis on youthful driver safety. Safe Communities activities also focus on several holiday seasons which can involve heavy traffic patterns and celebrations which traditionally can involve more alcohol use. The grant funds for the Brown County Safe Communities Program are passed through the Ohio State Highway Patrol-Ohio Traffic Safety Office from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) to support the efforts of safety partners statewide and focus on the previously mentioned traffic safety priority issues. The UC AHEC Program (HEALTH-UC) has been coordinating the Safe Communities Program since it began in Brown County in October of 2000 with the help of several participating organizations, many of whom were mentioned above as current Coalition members. For more information about Brown County Safe Communities, please call Sue Basta, x Project Director at HEALTH-UC at 937-378-4171. We are always looking for more members and volunteers!

Join us for the day to learn more about worksite health promotion best practices and practical strategies for using them to improve your employees’ health. Advanced registration is necessary (there will be a small registration fee) and the deadline for signing up for the Conference is November 6th. For more information or registration information, please contact Sue Basta at HEALTH-UC (PH: 937-378-4171; email: Susan.Basta@UC.edu). Brown County Safe Communities is funded for 2014 The Brown County Safe Communities (BCSC) Coalition is pleased to announce that it will receive more support for traffic safety activities for the Federal Fiscal Year 2014! HEALTH-UC and the University of Cincinnati Area Health Education Center (UC AHEC) Program, the organization which locally administers the BCSC Program, has once again been awarded a Safe Communities Program grant from the Ohio Department of Public Safety/Ohio State Highway Patrol-Ohio Traffic Safety Office. Partnerships are very important to the long-term success of any safety effort, and these Safe Communities funds will help to continue already-existing partnerships with local law enforcement and other local and state safety partners to decrease the number of fatal and serious injury crashes on our local roads. In Brown County, Safe Communities members include the Ohio State Highway Patrol, Brown County Sheriff’s Dept., and other local police departments. Also represented are the Brown County Commissioners, the Brown County 4-H CARTEENS, all local high schools and Southern Hills Career & Technical Center.

OSU Extension offers guidance for reseeding pasture in pipeline rights-of-way Farmers who are negotiating easements across their property for shale oil and gas pipelines may want to consider including a clause about when the company should reseed their pastures, a forage expert with Ohio State University’s College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences said. Reseeding at the wrong time of year, which appears to be happening frequently, often results in failure, he said. Farmers need to be aware of the impact that the construction, maintenance and long-term presence these pipelines can have on their property, particularly when it comes to reseeding pipeline right-of-way pasture and hay areas, said Clif Little, an educator with the college’s outreach arm, Ohio State University Extension. Little and Mark Sulc, an OSU Extension forage specialist, recently wrote a paper, distributed to county Extension educators across the state, that said farmers should be involved in decisions regarding reseeding of pipelines. The paper is online at http://belmont.osu.edu/new s/shale-gas-resources-forlandowners. The difficult issue in reseeding these easements is that installation of the pipeline may occur at any time of year, and when installation is complete, reseeding of the area may occur at a time that is not ideal for forage establishment, they said. “We’re seeing a lot of pipelines going in across Ohio farmland and because farmers are hoping to get production off of that land the next year, the timing could impede pasture establishment,” Little said. “The issue is that the majority of pastures and hayfields in Ohio are composed of perennial cool-season grasses and legumes. “But reseeding of perennial cool-season grasses that occur during late June thru July 31 and Sept. 15 thru Oct. 30 will likely result in the failed establishment of a perennial cool season forage. So farmers need to be aware of this, as it’s their farms and their

production that is on the line.” The issue is that pipelines go in when the companies need the infrastructure to transport product, Little said. But the installation and resulting reseeding doesn’t always occur in the ideal time period. “While in most cases, the shale gas and oil companies are the ones doing the actual reseeding, farmers should try to make sure that they are in charge of the type of forages that are reseeded and if they can, also when the reseeding is to occur,” Little said. “This is good for the famer and the pipeline reclamation because both parties want the seeding to take and be successful the first time around.” During mid-summer, cool-season forages may not germinate, or if they do germinate they may die from heat and dry soil stress. And even if they do germinate and begin to grow they will not compete well with aggressive warm season annual weeds such as foxtail and ragweed, he said. For farmers who aren’t able to ensure a spring reseeding, the best approach for a late seeding involves performing all the preparatory agronomic practices during the summer and then planting the cool season-forages with annual forage at the proper time in August, Little said. That includes: preparing the soil for a proper seed bed; soil testing, applying and mixing in lime, starter nitrogen, phosphate and potassium; followed by seeding and mulching between Aug. 1 and Sept. 1, he said. The other problematic time to attempt to seed cool-season perennial forages is Sept. 15 thru Oct. 15, as cool-season perennial forages will probably germinate but will not likely establish a root system that is developed enough to carry them through the winter, at least not before a killing freeze occurs, Little said. “To avoid this, farmers should plant by mid-August in northern Ohio and by Sept. 1 in southern ING

Ohio,” he said. “If not, one alternative is to wait and plant the last week of October or anytime in November through early December and include a cool-season annual forage along with the perennial cool-season forages.” Little said that with the late planting, the intended goal is that cool-season perennial grasses not germinate until spring. “But it probably would be better to hold off seeding until early spring to avoid losses of seed viability or from washing of the seed during the winter months,” he said. “Either way, the soil will need to be protected somehow from erosion losses over the winter.” That could be achieved by planting annual forages such as cereal rye and oats to control erosion even in perennial mixtures, Little said. Other options growers can use include controlling weeds by mowing or using herbicides as soon as they come in. Growers can find more information, including management and selection tips, in the OSU Extension “Ohio Agronomy Guide, Bulletin 472” which can be purchased from any of the 88 OSU Extension offices statewide, Little said.
