A Mock Crash is planned for Thursday, April 18 at the Manchester High School. It will be between 9:00 – 10:00 a.m. In a joint effort between the Ohio State Highway Patrol, the Manchester Police Department, the Manchester Fire Department and Life Squad along with the Manchester High School. The Mock Crash will be in the presence of the High School students to raise awareness of drinking and driving. Manchester high School will be having their Prom on Saturday, April 20. In Statewide Statistics for OVI Enforcement the numbers for 2013 are down from 2012 by 573. For OVI Enforcement from January 1 – April 8, 2013 is 6,045. For the same time frame in 2012 it is 6,618. In Ohio in 2011 there were 290,248 crashes. 1,015 people were killed and 9,482 people were seriously injured. The economic cost to Ohio was more than $8.6 million. Ohio’s ultimate goal is to eliminate all fatalities. The short term goal is to reduce the number of fatalities by 5% by 2015. By achieving this goal, more than 150 lives will be saved over five years. The patrol believes that of the many crashes that occur each year can be prevented through safer driving. Many injuries and deaths can be prevented by increasing seat belt use and decreasing speeds and alcohol use. In Adams County between the years of 2009-2011 there were 19 Fatal deaths and 161 Seriously Injured. For High Risk Driver Behaviors, Alcohol Related Involvement was the #1 cause of both serious injuries and

This Week in Baseball/Softball

For ages 11 through 18. The Adams County Health Department would like to offer a free immunization called Menactra to your child. This vaccine is recommended for adolescents age 11 through 18 and is especially recommended for the college freshman living in college dormitories. The immunization Menactra is a meningococcal vaccine to prevent a serious bacterial illness called meningitis. Meningitis is an infection of the covering of the brain and the spinal cord. Between 1,000 and 1,200 people get meningococcal disease per year in the United States. The infection can be treated with antibiotics, but can be life threatening or cause serious life time problems, this is why it is important for people to obtain this simple vaccine. Mild side effects of the vaccine can be redness or soreness at the injection site which is given in the arm. A vaccine information sheet will be provided at the time of the injection to read for more information.

If you would like your child to have this vaccine, please contact our office at 937 544-5547 ext. 101, for further information about how to obtain. We can also give this vaccine at our office on Thursday afternoon, from 1:00 4:00 p.m.This offer will be available until May 17, 2013.

$2.3 Billion Estimated to be Spent on State Roads Officially Launches 2013 Construction Season Your tax dollars will be hard at work as the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) launches one of the largest, most aggressive construction seasons to date with projects totaling approximately $2.3 billion. “Investing in our state’s transportation system is vital to our economy and to job creation,” said ODOT Director Jerry Wray. “We work hard to establish and maintain an efficient, effective transportation system that gets people and goods where they want to go in a timely and safe manner.” Statewide, ODOT’s robust construction schedule consists of an impressive 996 projects, which could total as much as $2.3 billion, and as part of this year’s construction season, ODOT District 9’s program will consist of 65 projects with an estimated cost of $64 million to be awarded and constructed through FY2013 and the first quarter of FY2014.

Along with the Ironton-Russell Bridge project, District 9’s construction department will also undertake · A $1.6 million resurfacing on S.R. 125 in Adams County; · A $1.1 million resurfacing project on S.R. 131 in Brown County; · A $1.1 million resur-

facing on S.R. 136 and S.R. 286 in Highland County; · A $3.8 million resurfacing and bridge rehabilitation on U.S. 23 in Ross and Pike counties; · A $3.2 million resurfacing project on S.R. 140 in Lawrence and Scioto counties; · A $12 million resurfacing and bridge rehabilitation on U.S. 52 in Scioto County;

A $1.9 million slide repair on U.S. 35 in Jackson County; Of course, with so many highway improvements taking place across the region, orange barrels will soon become a familiar sight, and ODOT also reminds motorists to take heed, don’t speed, give work zones your undivided attention and remember, We’re all in this together. “At all times, it is important that motorists use caution when traveling in work zones,” said ODOT District 9 Deputy Director Vaughn Wilson. “We do all we can to ensure the safety of our workers and the motoring public, but to see a real reduction in work zone crashes, certain driver behaviors need to change.” Motorists should use caution whenever traveling in construction or maintenance work zones. The top three causes of work zone crashes are following too closely, failure to control and improper lane change, all of which can be prevented by safe driving.

Remember Sun Safety When Enjoying Sunny Weather age to the skin occurs before the age of 18. If you have children or grandchildren, make sure you all take precautions to prevent or reduce sun damage. The first step to preventing sun damage to your skin is avoiding overexposure to ultra-

Dear Miss Needles Dear Miss Needles - I need some inspiration for a spring project. Any suggestions? Sign me Bored Dear Bored: I love starting new projects but have trouble sometimes finishing them, but you have come to the right place for inspiration. I love piecing and embroidering for spring and summer and I tend to knit, crochet and quilt in the fall and winter. That being said there are lots of craft shows around and on April 20th the Loose Thread Quilters are having their quilt show. If you are a quilter, you can't help but become inspired by the fine quality of quilts and projects. I also suggest if you like hook

rugs or crochet, to work on small projects that are not too hot as the weather heats up. Sketch some dafodils and then work them in redwork, use your environment as inspiration. Good luck. Dear Miss Needles - I am thinking about trying an art quilt but I am not sure about painting on fabric. Any suggestions? Sign me Suzy Dear Suzy - I would suggest you try a simple and small project first. Perhaps a coaster for a drink or a small wall hanging. I make a lot of the primitve dolls which are painted muslin and after the paint we sand them. Most painted projects are not meant

to be washed but I still like to heat set my paints just in case someone spills something on one of them. There are fabric paints (remember the 3-d painted t-shirts or applique sweat-shirts that were popular 15 years ago?) and I know artists who use the water based acrylics and thin them with water. The main thing with art projects is to have fun. Good luck and remember to send us a picture of your project(s). Do you have a question for Miss Needles? If so, please e-mail her at DearMissNeedles@yahoo.co m or write to her in care of The Informer.

Alas, I think the sunny, warmer weather is here to stay. (Or at least I hope it is!) With the warmer weather, many of us will spend more time outdoors. Unfortunately, however, we may quickly walk out into the bright, beautiful sunshine forgetting to do one very important thing: take precautions to protect against sun damage. A suntan is a form of skin damage and does not protect you from skin cancer. When you get a tan or burn and it goes away, you may think that that damage from the sun has “disappeared.” However, something that people often do not realize is that sun damage is cumulative over the years. Even though you cannot visibly see it, the damage from the sun is still there and cannot be reversed. This is a difficult concept to learn when you are younger and the media puts strong emphasis on having a golden, bronze tan. Many people can probably attest that one thing they would have done differently in their youth would be to apply sun screen more often. In fact, most dam-

Next row start with a, etc. I have seen these made in all solids, all blue or indigos and white and I have seen them scrappy. I used to save triangles I cut form other projects and then use them for projects like this. By the time you have this one pieced, you would be an expert at half square triangles. This is one vintage pattern I hope to make this summer in shirting and indigos. Do you have an antique quilt you would like to share photo's of? Please send them to The Informer.

Church, 1730 Measley Ridge Road, Peebles OH. Beautiful quilts and handmade items will be on display. A bed turning will be presented at 2pm followed by the announcement of the viewer's

choice winning entry. Door prizes will be given throughout the day, and a drawing for a raffle quilt will be held. Come join us and share the joy of quilting. Information: Sharen Benner 587-2103.

Adams County Senior Citizens A huge “Thank You!” The staff of the Adams County Senior Citizens Center would like to extend a big THANK YOU to all our sponsors, volunteers, supporters, and all those who donate items to the agency. Each one of you is considered an asset to our agency and your kind attention helps us to be able to serve others. Have you had your eyes checked lately? Many of us may have trouble seeing as well as we used to. We can’t take our eyes for granted as their delicate, complex mechanisms need care and attention at each stage of life. To make sure your vision is the best it can be, remember to have regular check-ups to watch for such things as high blood pressure and diabetes, both of which can cause problems. Schedule a complete exam every few years even if you haven’t noticed any problems and have more frequent exams if you have diabetes or a history of eye disease. If you have blurred or distorted vision, unusually tired or painful eyes or an unusual amount of discharge, double vision, red or swollen eyelids, dry, itchy or burning eyes, or a film over your eyes that doesn’t disappear when you blink, see your eye doctor right away. If these conditions are not detected and treated early, your vision may be permanently damaged.

Beltone. A Beltone Representative will be at the Senior Center on April 19th from 9am-3pm. For more information or to set up an appointment, please contact Mary at 1-740-353-1021. Plan ahead: Next Thursday, April 25th at 12 noon, the Manchester Senior Citizens “Young In Heart” Club will meet at the community building for their regular monthly covered dish, carryin dinner/meeting. Any senior is welcome to come and share in fellowship, good will, good food and make some new friends! Here’s a fact of life: Social interactions with family and friends can encourage a longer, happier and healthier life! Studies have shown that people who enjoy the fellowship of family and friends live longer than their counterparts who are socially isolated. It makes the time go by faster, it keeps you in touch with what is going on around you, it give you someone to think about beside yourself, and people need people! So, with the warmer weather, you have a better reason to get out there and get involved! Cooking for one or two? Planning meals in advance is the key. It may even be easier to plan a weekly menu. Begin with a main dish for every meal and build around it with vegetables, pastas, bread, fruit and/or a salad. Don’t be afraid to try a variety or combination of foods so that you don’t get bored eating the same thing out of habit. Planning weekly meals also helps you use up left-overs and possibly making fewer trips to the grocery store, saving both time and money. Pineapple has been used as a home remedy for indigestion, according to some old wives tales, but there actually may be something to this one.

Research has shown that fresh pineapple contains bromelain, an enzyme that helps break down protein during digestion. Our bodies produce less stomach acid as we age, causing more stomach woes and a few slices of fresh pineapple after a meal might put the balance back in our favor. Keep in mind that canned pineapple may not do the trick as the heat used in canning may destroy much of the stomachsoothing bromelain. Come on out and get involved in some of the activities and services we have going on every month here at the Senior Center. On the 1st Monday & Friday each month the Adams County Veterans Services are here. On the 3rd Monday we have Knitting Class from 1:00pm – 4:00pm.

Each Thursday from 12:30pm-3:30pm we play card games. On the 3rd Thursday we will celebrate birthdays at 2:00pm for any senior having a birthday in the month. We welcome anyone who would like to volunteer to help with any activities you might be interested in doing. Services and activities are FREE. It’s YOUR Senior Center. We want YOU to enjoy it.

Politics & Government House Democrats Announce Rep. Johnson appointed to serve on the Ohio School Facilities Support of Medicaid Expansion Commission and Ohio War Orphans Scholarship Board Introduce Stand AloneBill to Ensure Health Coverage for 275,000 Ohioans House Minority Leader Armond Budish (D) and State Reps. Nickie Antonio and John Carney held a press conference introducing Medicaid expansion in a stand-alone bill. Gov. Kasich included the expansion of Medicaid as part of his two year budget. House Republicans decided to forgo $13 billion in federal aid to Ohio to increase healthcare access through Medicaid in the changes they proposed to Gov. Kasich’s budget yesterday. “We stand ready to support the stand-alone legislation introduced by Reps. Antonio and Carney which adopts the Governor’s proposal to expand Medicaid. We ask Republican leadership to put aside tea party threats and allow the bill to be voted on, on the House floor, where it will have strong bi-partisan support,” said Leader Budish. Right now, hundreds of thousands of Ohioans cannot afford healthcare cover-

age and do not qualify for Medicaid. Expanding Medicaid will allow 275,000 Ohioans to see a doctor, get preventive care, and obtain needed lab test and x-rays. And it will bring $13 billion in tax money back to Ohio. “This is the right time to do the right thing for hundreds of thousands of

State Rep. Terry Johnson (R-McDermott) has been appointed by Ohio House Speaker William G. Batchelder (R-Medina) to serve a second term as one of two Ohio House members on the Ohio School Facilities Commission (OSFC). The OSFC administers the state’s comprehensive kindergarten through 12th grade public school construction program. The agency helps school districts fund, plan, design, and build or renovate schools. Johnson will not have voting privileges with the commission, but will act as an advisor and consultant. Having adequate facilities is a vital component in providing a quality education. In Southern Ohio, we

Sen. Brown Calls For Passage Of Fair Minimum Wage Act Ohio Workers Would Benefit from Bill, Which Would Raise Minimum Wage to $10.10 an Hour in Three Steps and Provide First Raise for Tipped Workers in 20 Years, Brown Details Conversations with Ohio Business Owners, Workers Who Support Increase in Federal Minimum Wage. Millions of Ohio workers would receive a raise under new legislation supported by U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH). The Fair Minimum Wage Act would raise the federal minimum wage to $10.10 an hour in three steps and provide the first minimum wage increase to tipped employees in more than 20 years. Brown held a news conference call today to call for passage of the bill and detail his recent conversations with business owners who support an increase in the Federal minimum wage so that low wage workers can take care of their families. “Ohio citizens work hard, play by the rules, and should be able to take care of their

families. But too many Ohioans are working harder than ever – and barely getting by,” said Brown. “Working full-time in a minimum wage job in Ohio pays about $16,000 per year – which isn’t much to live on when you’re trying to put food on the table,

Representative Brad Wenstrup met with USEC officials and employees on Friday, April 5, at the plant in Piketon, to receive an update on the progress of the Research, Development, and Demonstration (RD&D) program. While visiting the facility, Rep. Wenstrup expressed his continued support for the program and thanked the employees for their work to support America’s energy independence. The Department of Energy and USEC are executing the $350 million cooperative program to confirm the readiness of the American Centrifuge

technology, the next-generation U.S. uranium enrichment capabilities. The American Centrifuge Project in Piketon, is imperative to

fill your gas tanks, send your children to school, and provide a safe place for them to live. Ensuring a fair wage is good for middle class families and good for our economy.” Brown is the cosponsor of the Fair Minimum Wage Act of 2013, legislation that would raise the federal minimum wage. It would raise the minimum wage to $10.10 an hour from its current $7.25— in three steps of 95 cents— then provide for automatic annual increases linked to

changes in the cost of living. The bill would also gradually raise the minimum wage for tipped workers—which currently stands at just $2.13 an hour—for the first time in more than 20 years, to 70 percent of the regular minimum wage. Workers who are paid a minimum wage in Ohio earn only $16,000 per year, which is more than $3,000 below the poverty level for a family of three. The Fair Minimum Wage Act would boost the minimum wage to $21,000, lifting families above the poverty line. According to the National Employment Law Project, the minimum wage has lost more than 30 percent over the last forty years. If the minimum wage had kept up with inflation, it would be worth approximately $10.55 per hour today. Increasing the minimum wage would boost GDP by nearly $33 billion and generate 140,000 new jobs over the course of three years as workers spend their raises in their local businesses and communities.

Spring is Here Last week I wrote about Opening Day, and it was pretty cold by the end of the 13th inning. I said, here comes spring, well it is here. As I write this on Tuesday, I had the AC on in my car earlier today. Hopefully a few days like this will allow soil temperatures to rise enough that planting can get started soon. I have seen a bunch of fertilizer buggies on the road in the past few days, so things are happening on the farms. Hold on tight, the next few weeks will be busy as field work gets underway and planters begin to roll. Alfalfa Weevil in 2013 With the colder than normal spring, the start of alfalfa weevil season has been delayed. Reports from Kentucky through the end of March show low numbers of the pest. Now that we are experiencing warmer temperatures in Southern Ohio this week, this can change quickly. The warm temperatures will stimulate eggs to hatch and we can see a major increase in the numbers and damage, quickly. Older stands are more have the greatest chance of damaging weevil populations. The winter was not cold enough to kill off this pest, so scout often once the plants begin to grow as temperatures warm up. Tobacco Plant Care Schedule We have now been producing tobacco plants on water in greenhouses and outside beds for over a quarter of a century. Despite the experience some growers have, there continues to be questions about management and the tools that we have to deal with problems.

Some of this stems from a few new products The rate is 0.5 lb/100 gal of water, which is the that you can now use. Another issue that equivalent of 1 tsp/gal. Use 3 gal of spray sometimes causes additional problems is the solution per 1000 sq. ft of bed (~400 trays) and fact that almost everything that we have to use apply as a fine mist to ensure good foliar covis a preventative. That means you have to use erage. it to keep a problem from showing up, but most want to wait and try to fix a problem once 5 Weeks after Seeding Continue foliar sprays with mancozebit shows up. These products are not good for based fungicides, increasing spray volume to fixing problems, but preventing them. I recently saw a calendar like schedule or 4-5 gal per 1,000 sq. ft as plant size increases. plan to use as a guide. This appeared in the Kentucky Pest News and was put together by 6 Weeks after Seeding The first time plants are clipped: UK Tobacco Specialist, Dr. Kenny Seebold - If target spot is and UK Extension David Dugan not present, continue with Agent, Clint Hardy. Extension Educator, mancozeb based fungicide Below is the schedule. Agriculture and Natural products and increase Keep in mind that the Resources spray volume to 6 (or size of plants can vary Ohio Valley Extension depending on temperamore if needed) gal/1,000 Education sq. ft. Don’t exceed 12 tures, but this is an Research Area example that should be Adams/Brown/Highland gallons of spray volume per 1,000 sq. feet (even on close. Counties the largest plants). - If target spot is active, treat with Quadris 2-4 Weeks after Seeding When roots of plants emerge from trays at 0.14 fl oz/1000 sq. ft of bed. This is the and enter float water, apply Terramaster EC at equivalent of 4 cc (~1 tsp), and should be dilut0.7 to 1 fl oz/100 gal of float water for control ed in 4-5 gallons of water before dispersing as of Pythium root rot. Make a follow-up appli- a fine spray. One application of Quadris is cation of Terramaster at 1 fl oz/100 gal of float permitted on tobacco seedlings in float beds water no earlier than 3 weeks later (see below). 6-7 Weeks after Seeding - Make follow-up application of 3-4 Weeks after Seeding When plants have reached the size of a Terramaster EC at 1 fl oz/100 gal of float dime, apply a mancozeb fungicide (Dithane water. - After the second clipping, and if DF, Manzate ProStick, or Penncozeb 75DF) for suppression of Rhizoctonia damping-off. Quadris has not been used earlier, apply

Quadris fungicide (see ‘6 Weeks after Seeding’ for rate). 7 Weeks after Seeding. Continue with mancozeb based fungicide products, slightly increasing spray volume per 1,000 sq. ft as plant size increases, not to exceed 12 gallons of spray volume per 1,000 sq. feet (even on the largest plants). 8 Weeks after Seeding (and beyond) Continue with mancozeb based fungicide products, slightly increasing spray volume per 1,000 sq. feet as plant size increases, not to exceed 12 gallons of spray volume per 1,000 sq. feet (even on the largest plants). A final application of Terramaster EC can be made at 0.7 to 1 fl oz/100 gal of float water if needed; do not apply more than 5 days before transplanting. Poison Hemlock – Now is a Good Time to Control it I have noticed patches of this problem weed growing along roadways in the past few days. It is still small enough to control it with 2,4D or Crossbow among other products. This is a problem weed that I have written about in the past that seems to be along creeks, roads and fences. In recent years it has spread further and further out into our hay fields. This is a very toxic weed. This plant reproduces by seed. It is very hard to kill once it gets some size to it. The number of seeds produced by one plant is literally in the thousands.

Field reports from ODNR Division of Wildlife Officers Southwest Ohio On Thanksgiving morning of 2012, State Wildlife Officers Gus Kiebel and Eric Lamb were on patrol at Indian Creek Wildlife Area in Brown County. As they patrolled the area, the officers encountered three groups of pheasant hunters that had begun hunting well before the legal hunting time of sunrise. Upon further investigation, the two officers issued 10 summonses for the violation of various individuals within the three groups. All of the hunters who were issued a summons that day paid a bond forfeiture of a $107.00. As is typically the case, the fines included in this amount went back into the wildlife fund to further conservation efforts of the Division of Wildlife. Southeast Ohio During the fall of 2012, State Wildlife Officer Jared Abele received multiple complaints about an individual illegally hunting in Vinton County. Some of the alleged complaints were for hunting without permission, possessing illegal deer racks, hunting with firearms during the deer archery season, and trapping without permission. In January 2013, Investigator Travis Abele and Officer Jared Abele contact the suspect at his residence. During the contact, the officers identified 15 illegal deer racks in the sus-

pect’s possession. The officers seized the 15 deer racks and issued the suspect multiple summonses for the violations. The suspect pleaded guilty to the charges in Vinton County Court. Central Ohio One evening in August, Logan County Wildlife Officer Adam Smith received a phone call from Deputy Ryan Brown with the Logan County Sheriff’s Office. The sharp thinking Deputy had heard radio traffic from another Deputy regarding an abandoned vehicle parked along a roadway in the hills of Logan County. Deputy Brown recalled a previous conversation that he had with Officer Smith in reference to ginseng diggers in the area. Deputy

Brown informed Officer Smith of the owner of the vehicle, whom Officer Smith knew was an active ginseng digger. After learning that the ginseng diggers had abandoned their vehicle in an attempt to avoid apprehension, Wildlife Officer Supervisor Curtis Smith and Wildlife Officer Adam Smith teamed up to locate and interview the suspects later that night. The investigation, which lasted into the early morning hours, revealed that the pair of diggers had committed multiple ginseng violations during the year; which included harvesting ginseng during closed season, harvesting ginseng without permission and criminal trespassing. The duo was each issued multiple summonses in two court venues. A total of $1,256 in fines and court costs were paid by the pair. In addition, over 4 pounds of illegally harvested ginseng root was seized and forfeited to the Ohio Division of Wildlife. This case relied heavily on the outstanding work of Deputy Ryan Brown.

Two Southern Ohio Veterans With baseball season well underway, I thought it appropriate to mention Wesley Rickey, another Ohio WWI veteran who made baseball history. Rickey is a prominent subject, along with Jackie Robinson, in 42, a major motion picture now playing in theaters across the country. Rickey is portrayed by Harrison Ford. Wesley Branch Rickey was born December 20, 1881, in Little California (later named Stockdale), Ohio (Scioto County). Rickey played in the major leagues from 1905-1907 and in 1914. He was not a great ball player, but he was one of baseball’s true innovators. He is credited with inventing the “farm team” and the use of statistics to evaluate players. Even more important, Rickey is credited with desegregating the game of baseball. Rickey attended a oneroom school in Rush Township in Scioto County and later in nearby Lucasville. He was unable to earn a diploma since the school did not offer one. In March 1901, he enrolled at Ohio Wesleyan University, a Methodist school located in Delaware, Ohio. In the fall of 1907, he entered the law school at the University of Michigan and earned his law degree in 1911. At age 36, Rickey enlisted in the U.S. Army and was commissioned a Major in the Chemical Warfare Service (“Gas and Flame Division”). He sailed to France aboard the President Grant. During that weeklong voyage over 100 men were lost to the flu (1917). Rickey himself fell ill of pneumonia and had to be carried ashore at Brest. The 1st Gas regiment took part in LEGAL NOTICE Resolution 2013-5 to have the Village Administrator's salary to come from 4 Funds.

Audition This Weekend For Magic Water Theatre After nearly a full year of being idle, the hills of Cave Holler will once again come alive with the sound of theatre and fun as Magic Waters Theatre presents a new season of live theatre under the stars. In preparation for that, auditions will be held this Saturday and Sunday ( April 20-21) from 1pm-5pm at the amphitheatre on Cave Road. ( In the event of rainy days or very cold days, the auditions will be held at the producers’ home which is very near-by.Signs will direct folks in that event.) Janny Brizius, theatre producer, says,”We have many roles to fill, and we will have parts for children, teens, adults and seniors!” No experience is necessary to try out, though Magic Waters often does cast folks with extensive theatre

experience, and they usually say, “This is the best theatre experience I’ve ever had!” Folks trying out should realize that all parts are volunteer. However chances are your life will be enriched by the time spent on that rustic stage! The amphitheatre is located at 7757 Cave Road, just off of US Route 50 midway between

Hillsboro and Chillicothe and 4 miles west of Bainbridge.

Field reports from ODNR Division of Wildlife Officers Southwest Ohio On Thanksgiving morning of 2012, State Wildlife Officers Gus Kiebel and Eric Lamb were on patrol at Indian Creek Wildlife Area in Brown County. As they patrolled the area, the officers encountered three groups of pheasant hunters that had begun hunting well before the legal hunting time of sunrise. Upon further investigation, the two officers issued 10 summonses for the violation of various individuals within the three groups. All of the hunters who were issued a summons that day paid a bond forfeiture of a $107.00. As is typically the case, the fines included in this amount went back into the wildlife fund to further conservation efforts of the Division of Wildlife. Southeast Ohio During the fall of 2012, State Wildlife Officer Jared Abele received multiple complaints about an individual illegally hunting in Vinton County. Some of the alleged complaints were for hunting without permission, possessing illegal deer racks, hunting with firearms during the deer archery season, and trapping without permission. In January 2013, Investigator Travis Abele and Officer Jared Abele contact the suspect at his residence. During the contact, the officers identified 15 illegal deer racks in the sus-

pect’s possession. The officers seized the 15 deer racks and issued the suspect multiple summonses for the violations. The suspect pleaded guilty to the charges in Vinton County Court. Central Ohio One evening in August, Logan County Wildlife Officer Adam Smith received a phone call from Deputy Ryan Brown with the Logan County Sheriff’s Office. The sharp thinking Deputy had heard radio traffic from another Deputy regarding an abandoned vehicle parked along a roadway in the hills of Logan County. Deputy Brown recalled a previous conversation that he had with Officer Smith in reference to ginseng diggers in the area. Deputy

Brown informed Officer Smith of the owner of the vehicle, whom Officer Smith knew was an active ginseng digger. After learning that the ginseng diggers had abandoned their vehicle in an attempt to avoid apprehension, Wildlife Officer Supervisor Curtis Smith and Wildlife Officer Adam Smith teamed up to locate and interview the suspects later that night. The investigation, which lasted into the early morning hours, revealed that the pair of diggers had committed multiple ginseng violations during the year; which included harvesting ginseng during closed season, harvesting ginseng without permission and criminal trespassing. The duo was each issued multiple summonses in two court venues. A total of $1,256 in fines and court costs were paid by the pair. In addition, over 4 pounds of illegally harvested ginseng root was seized and forfeited to the Ohio Division of Wildlife. This case relied heavily on the outstanding work of Deputy Ryan Brown.

Two Southern Ohio Veterans With baseball season well underway, I thought it appropriate to mention Wesley Rickey, another Ohio WWI veteran who made baseball history. Rickey is a prominent subject, along with Jackie Robinson, in 42, a major motion picture now playing in theaters across the country. Rickey is portrayed by Harrison Ford. Wesley Branch Rickey was born December 20, 1881, in Little California (later named Stockdale), Ohio (Scioto County). Rickey played in the major leagues from 1905-1907 and in 1914. He was not a great ball player, but he was one of baseball’s true innovators. He is credited with inventing the “farm team” and the use of statistics to evaluate players. Even more important, Rickey is credited with desegregating the game of baseball. Rickey attended a oneroom school in Rush Township in Scioto County and later in nearby Lucasville. He was unable to earn a diploma since the school did not offer one. In March 1901, he enrolled at Ohio Wesleyan University, a Methodist school located in Delaware, Ohio. In the fall of 1907, he entered the law school at the University of Michigan and earned his law degree in 1911. At age 36, Rickey enlisted in the U.S. Army and was commissioned a Major in the Chemical Warfare Service (“Gas and Flame Division”). He sailed to France aboard the President Grant. During that weeklong voyage over 100 men were lost to the flu (1917). Rickey himself fell ill of pneumonia and had to be carried ashore at Brest. The 1st Gas regiment took part in LEGAL NOTICE Resolution 2013-5 to have the Village Administrator's salary to come from 4 Funds.
