Library honored with Four-Star award BY JEFF JONES BUTLER — The stars have come out once again at the Butler Public Library. For the fourth time in the past six years, the library has been named a “Star Library” in Library Journal magazine’s annual index of public library service. The announcement was made in that publication’s November issue, based on 2011 statistics. The edition ranks libraries as three, four or five stars based on circulation, visits per capita, program attendance per capita and computer usage. Libraries submit annual reports to their state libraries, and Library Journal uses that information to create its index. The Butler library was ranked among libraries with annual budgets between $200,000$399,999. “Everyone works so hard,” said director Ellen Stuckey. “The staff really deserves the recognition.

COMMUNITY EVENTS Library board to hold public hearing BUTLER — The Butler Public Library Board of Trustees will conduct a public hearing at 7 p.m. Wednesday to address the library’s internet and computer use policy.

“We’ve really focused on pre-literacy and getting children to read.” Over the years, the library has implemented and maintained several initiatives, including the 1,000 Book Club, Kindergarten Prep School (KiPS), StoryTime, Book Buddies and Begin in Books programs and the ever-popular summer reading program. “I’m very proud of my staff,” Stuckey said. “The staff really deserves this because they work very hard to make this library operate easily. They’re all very good at what they do.” In all, Indiana placed seven libraries on the index, while neighboring Ohio ranked second once again with 32 libraries on the list. New York had the most with 37. Eleven states had no libraries on the list.

District marks 50 years BY JEFF JONES BUTLER — While the DeKalb County Eastern Community School District was established in July 1962, the first seniors to graduate from Eastside Junior-Senior High School received their diplomas in the spring of 1964. To commemorate 50 years, school officials will host an informal open house Wednesday, Nov. 27, as part of the boys basketball game between Eastside and Garrett. Patrons can walk the Eastside hallways, visit the Millie Hansen Auditorium, dinner theater and witness some of the latest

classroom technological advances, explained principal Larry Yoder. Staff members will be available in various parts of the building. School consolidations — often between rival schools — occurred in part due to Indiana’s School Corporation Reorganization Act of 1959. Locally, that brought together students who attended the Metropolitan School District of Butler and the Riverdale School Corporation. In a special election held

Butler Police plan ‘Shop with a Cop’ BUTLER — The Butler Police Department is planning its annual “Shop with a Cop” event. Donations are currently being accepted, Police Chief Jim Nichols announced. In addition to the shopping trip, police hope to raise enough money so that the child and his or her family can enjoy a meal with a police officer, Nichols said. Police are consulting with school and church officials to determine need. Applications are also available at the police department, 201 N. Broadway. Children must be 16 years of age or younger and reside within the Butler city limits. Applications are to be returned to the police department no later than Monday, Dec. 9.

Applications must include a valid telephone number. A copy of a current utility bill to show proof of residency in Butler must also be included. Children will shop with a uniformed Butler Police officer, and will be given an amount of money to spend. Children are encouraged to buy a needed item for themselves, such as a coat, hat, gloves or sweatshirts. Participating children are usually able to purchase gifts for other family members. The child’s parent or guardian will also be accompanied by a police officer to shop so the child or children will have gifts to open Christmas morning. For more information, contact the Butler Police Department at 868-2171.

May 8, 1962, voters approved the creation of the DeKalb Eastern school district. The first elected school board was comprised of president Franklyn Sechler, vice president Walter Reinhart, secretary Wendell Cooper, treasurer Joseph Parshall, and members Keith Culler, Frank Laub and Delbert Washler. The superintendent was Ernest Zeller and the school attorney was Henry C. Springer. That brought together the histories of the Butler Windmills

and Riverdale Comets. Coincidentally, Riverdale was a consolidation of the St. Joe Tigers and Concord Township, Spencerville Red Raiders and Spencer Township, and Newville Township. Patrons are invited to share memorabilia, including old photos, yearbooks, athletic apparel, trophies and newspaper articles pertaining to any of the schools in eastern DeKalb County. Contributors can bring their items to the Eastside office, 603 E. Green St. Patrons are asked to tag their items for easy identification and can be picked up when school resumes Monday, Dec. 2.

United Way reports campaign success BY SUE CARPENTER BUTLER — The weather outside was frosty, but United Way supporters enjoyed a tropical climate inside the Filling Station Youth Center Friday morning for a report breakfast sponsored by Sally and Randy Bercaw and DeKalb Molded Plastics. Hawaii was the theme for the second leg of the campaign’s “Bon Voyage” series. Leis, flip-flops and flowered shirts were the fashion of the day. Steel Dynamics, Inc. added to the excitement when Liz Emenhiser reported a grand total of $335,484 has been collected toward the United Way’s campaign goal of $700,000 for local agencies. Butler Mill Service reported another $2,205 at 50 percent participation to date. Ashley Industrial Molding

representatives reported $27,795 thus far in its campaign. Deb Moughler from DeKalb Molded Plastics reported $13,260 has been collected, with 1-1/2 weeks to go toward its goal of $14,500. The company held events such as golf chipping, a free throw contest, candy and jerky sales, and a pie-inthe-face contest to add to the funds. Cindy Snyder, director of The Filling Station, reported 10 youth from the center collected about $1,300 from a recent all-night sports challenge, where youth sought pledges for Ping-Pong, free throws and continuous walking, among other activities. Participants Alice Webb, 9, and Jalena Campbell, 15, were present at Friday’s breakfast. Webb walked nonstop for about 90 minutes, collecting $167 in pledges, said Snyder. Campbell made 33 consecutive free throws for $56 and

walked 30 minutes for another $45. Webb collected flat pledges, earning another $124, Snyder said. Another fourth-grade boy earned $560 in pledges, she said. He won a gift card to Walmart as a prize. Snyder thanked the United Way for its support for programs at the youth center, which has served 450 individual children with more than 6,500 visits for far this year. Maureen Prebynski from Children First Center’s HOME program shared the agency’s goal to make a difference in the lives of children and to keep them safe through home visits, intervention and information sessions. The agency strives to keep children with relatives when they are removed from a parent’s home, she said. “If a suitable relative is available, it is less traumatic for them,” Presbynski said. The

agency works closely with the DeKalb County of Department of Child Services and Network Safe Families through SCAN. Help is offered through help with housing, teaching and assisting for job skills for employment, children’s early educational programs and redirecting children’s behaviors. She thanked the United Way for funds received from the United Way to promote the services. Campaign co-chairs David and Stacy Hefty welcomed the lively group and joined them in a Hawaiian souvenir relay. A holiday open house is planned at the United Way office on Thursday, Dec. 5, from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at 208 S. Jackson St., Auburn. For more information or to make reservations, go to or call 927-0995.

Interest on the Bonds shall be calculated on the basis of twelve (12) thirty (30)-day months for a three hundred and sixty (360)-day year and shall be payable semiannually on January 1 and July 1 in each year, commencing July 1, 2014. The Bonds will be issued as fully registered bonds to which principal and interest payments on the Bonds will be paid. Individual purchases will be only in denominations of Five Thousand and 00/100 Dollars ($5,000.00) or integral multiples thereof not exceeding the aggregate principal amount of the Bonds maturing in any year and when issued, will be registered in the name of CEDE & Co., as nominee for The Depository Trust Company (“DTC”), New York, New York. Purchasers of beneficial interests in the Bonds will not receive physical delivery of bond certificates and ownership by the Beneficial Owners of the Bonds will be evidenced by book-entry only. As long as CEDE & Co. is the registered owner of the Bonds as nominee of DTC, payments of principal and interest will be made directly to such registered owner, which will in turn, remit such payments to the DTC Participants for subsequent disbursement to the Beneficial Owners. The City shall not have any liability for the failure of DTC or any DTC Participant

to remit the payment or provide any notice to any Beneficial Owner of Bonds. The Bonds shall be numbered consecutively from 2013R-1 upward, shall bear an original issue date which shall be the date on which the Bonds are delivered and shall mature serially on January 1 in the years and amounts as follows (following the receipt of bids and determination of the successful bidder, the City reserves the right to modify individual maturity amounts to achieve level debt service with respect to the Bonds): Year Amount 2015 $50,000 2016 50,000 2017 55,000 2018 55,000 2019 55,000 2020 55,000 2021 60,000 2022 60,000 2023 60,000 2024 65,000 2025 $65,000 2026 70,000 2027 70,000 2028 75,000 2029 80,000 2030 80,000 2031 85,000 2032 90,000 2033 95,000 2034 100,000 Sealed bids may be submitted to the Financial Advisor at the address described above until 11:00 a.m. (local time) on the date of sale. Principal and premium, if any, on the Bonds will be payable at the principal corporate trust office of the Registrar and Paying Agent for the Bonds (the “Registrar” and “Paying Agent,” and in both capacities, the “Registrar and Paying Agent”) to be appointed by the Clerk-Treasurer. Interest on the Bonds will be paid by check or draft mailed or delivered to the registered owner thereof at the address as it appears on the registration books kept by the Registrar as of the fifteenth (15th) day of the month immediately preceding the interest payment date or at such other address as is provided to the Paying Agent in writing by such registered owner. So long as DTC or its nominee is the registered owner of the Bonds, principal of and interest on the Bonds will be paid directly by the Paying Agent to DTC, by wire transfer in same date funds. The Bonds maturing on or after January 1, 2025 are subject to optional redemption at the option of the City, in whole or in part, on January 1, 2024, or at any time thereafter, in any order of maturity as selected by the City and by lot within any such maturity, at a redemption price of 100% of the principal amount of the Bonds so redeemed and without premium, plus interest accrued on the Bonds so redeemed to the date fixed for redemption. At the option of the successful bidder for the Bonds, all or a portion of the Bonds may be aggregated into one or more term bonds (the “Term

Bonds”) payable from mandatory sinking fund redemption payments required to be made as set forth in the ordinance authorizing the Bonds (the “Ordinance”). The Term Bonds shall have a stated maturity or maturities on January 1 of the years 2016 through 2034 as determined by the successful bidder. Any person interested in submitting a bid for the Bonds must furnish in writing to the Clerk-Treasurer, c/o the City’s Financial Advisor, Crowe Horwath LLP, 10 West Market Street, Suite 2000, Indianapolis, Indiana 46204-2976, telephone (317) 269-6696, on or before 2:00 p.m. (local time), Monday, December 2, 2013, the person’s name, address, and telephone number. The person may also furnish an email address. The Clerk-Treasurer will cause each person so registered to be notified of (a) the date and time bids will be received and (b) the final principal maturity schedule for the Bonds, not less than twenty-four (24) hours before the date and time of sale. The notification shall be made by telephone at the number furnished by such person and also by email if an email address has been furnished. Each bid must be for all of the Bonds and must state the rate or rates of interest therefor, not exceeding the maximum per annum interest rates hereinbefore specified. Such interest rate or rates must be in multiples of one-eighth (1/8) or one-twentieth (1/20) of one percent (1.00%). Bids specifying more than one interest rate must also specify the amount and maturities of the Bonds bearing each rate. All Bonds maturing on the same date shall bear the same rate of interest and the interest rate bid on any maturity of Bonds shall be equal to or greater than the interest rate bid on any and all prior maturities of Bonds. Subject to the provisions contained herein, the award will be made to the bidder offering the lowest interest cost, to be determined by computing the total interest on all Bonds from the date thereof to the date of maturity and deducting therefrom the premium bid, if any, or adding thereto the amount of any discount, if any. Although not a term of sale, it is requested that each bid show the net dollar cost to final maturity and the net effective average interest rate on the entire issue. No conditional bid or bids for less than ninety-nine percent (99.0%) of the par value of the Bonds, plus accrued interest at the rate or rates named to the date of delivery, will be considered. The right is reserved to reject any and all bids. If no acceptable bid is received on the date fixed for sale of the Bonds, the sale may be continued from day to day thereafter without further advertisement for a period not to exceed thirty (30) days, but if so continued, no bid will be accepted which offers an interest cost which is equal to or higher than the best bid received at the time fixed for the sale. Each of the bids for the Bonds shall

be sealed in an envelope marked “Bid for City of Butler, Indiana, Waterworks Revenue Bonds of 2013.” Each bid must be on the form approved by the City, without additions, alterations or erasures. The City reserves the right to amend any information contained in this Notice of Intent to Sell. The City also reserves the right to postpone, from time to time, the date established for the receipt of bids on the Bonds. If any date fixed for the sale is postponed, any alternative sale date will be announced at least twenty-four (24) hours prior to such alternative sale date. Bids may be submitted electronically via PARITY in accordance with this notice until the time fixed for the sale, but no bid will be received after such time. To the extent any instructions or directions set forth in PARITY conflict with this notice, the terms of this notice shall control. For further information about PARITY, potential bidders may contact the Financial Advisor at the address set forth herein, or may contact i-Deal LLC at 1539 Broadway, 2nd Floor, New York, New York 10018 (phone: 212-849-5021). Upon award of the Bonds to a bidder, then such bidder must submit a certified or cashier’s check (or a wire transfer consisting of immediately available funds to the City as instructed by the City) in the amount of Thirteen Thousand Seven Hundred Fifty and 00/100 Dollars ($13,750.00) (the amount of the check or wire is hereinafter referred to as the “Deposit”) to the City not later than 3:00 p.m. (local time) on the next business day following the award by the City. In the event the bidder to whom the Bonds are awarded shall fail or refuse to comply with the provisions of the bid and this notice, such Deposit shall become the property of the City and shall be taken and considered as liquidated damages of the City on account of such failure or refusal. The checks of unsuccessful bidders will be returned immediately following the award of the Bonds. The successful bidder will be required to make payment for the Bonds in Federal Reserve or other immediately available funds and accept delivery of the Bonds within five (5) days after being notified that the Bonds are ready for delivery, at a bank designated by the City. Any premium bid must be paid in cash at the time of delivery as a part of the purchase price for the Bonds. The Bonds will be ready for delivery within forty-five (45) days after the date on which the award is made, and if not deliverable within that period, the successful bidder will be entitled to rescind the sale and the good faith check will be returned. Any notice of rescission must be in writing. At the request of the City, the successful bidder shall furnish to the City, simultaneously with or before delivery of the Bonds, a certificate in form satisfactory to the City regarding the initial public offering

price of the Bonds. In addition, the successful bidder shall inform the Financial Advisor to the City of such initial public offering price within two business days after the date of sale. The Bonds will be designated “qualified tax-exempt obligations” for purposes of Section 265(b)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the “Code”) relating to the ability of financial institutions to deduct from income for federal income tax purposes, interest expense that is allocable to carrying and acquiring tax-exempt obligations. It is anticipated that CUSIP identification numbers will be printed on the Bonds, but neither the failure to print such numbers on any Bonds nor any error with respect thereto shall constitute cause for a failure or refusal by the successful bidder to accept delivery of and pay for the Bonds. The Bonds are being issued under the provisions of the Indiana Code to provide funding for certain improvements to the City’s waterworks, together with the expenses necessarily incurred in connection therewith, including the expenses incurred in connection with the issuance of the Bonds. The City will not be obligated to pay the Bonds or the interest thereon except from the Net Revenues (as defined in the Ordinance) of the City’s waterworks on a parity basis with the Prior Bonds (defined herein), and the Bonds shall not constitute a debt for which the full faith and credit or taxing powers of the City will be pledged. The Bonds rank on a parity with the City’s Waterworks Revenue Bonds of 2006 (the “Prior Bonds”), outstanding after January 1, 2013, in the amount of $630,000, maturing in various amounts annually on January 1 in the years 2014 through 2027. At the time of delivery of the Bonds the approving opinion of Faegre Baker Daniels LLP, bond counsel, of South Bend, Indiana, as to the validity of the Bonds, together with a transcript of Bond proceedings, the printed Bonds with such legal opinion printed thereon, and closing certificates in the customary form showing no litigation, will be furnished to the successful bidder at the expense of the City. In addition, if bond counsel is unable, on the date of delivery, to render an opinion to the effect that, under existing law (1) the interest on the Bonds is excludable from gross income for federal income tax purposes and is not an item of tax preference for purposes of the federal alternative minimum tax that may be imposed on individuals and s, and (2) the interest on the Bonds is exempt from taxation in the State of Indiana for all purposes except the Indiana financial institutions tax and the Indiana inheritance tax, the successful bidder shall have the right to rescind the sale, and in such event the good faith deposit will be returned. A copy of the Preliminary Official Statement prepared at the direction of the City may be obtained by request from the Financial Advisor,

Crowe Horwath LLP, 10 West Market Street, Suite 2000, Indianapolis, Indiana 46204, prior to bid opening. Said Preliminary Official Statement will be in a form deemed final by the City, pursuant to Rule 15c2-12 of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Rule”). The Preliminary Official Statement when further supplemented by an addendum or addenda specifying the interest rates of the Bonds, and any other information referred to in paragraph (b)(1) of the Rule, shall constitute a “Final Official Statement” of the City with respect to the Bonds, as that term is defined in the Rule. By awarding the Bonds to any underwriter or underwriting syndicate submitting an Official Bid Form therefore, the City agrees that, no more than seven (7) business days after the date of such award, it shall provide to the senior managing underwriter of the syndicate to which the Bonds are awarded up to twenty-five (25) copies of the Official Statement at the City’s expense, any additional copies to be at the expense of the underwriting syndicate. The City designates the senior managing underwriter of the syndicate to which the Bonds are awarded as its agent for purposes of distributing copies of the Final Official Statement to each participating Underwriter. Any underwriter executing and delivering an Official Bid Form with respect to the Bonds agrees thereby that if its bid is accepted by the City (i) it shall accept such designation and (ii) it shall enter into a contractual relationship with all Participating Underwriters of the Bonds for purposes of assuring the receipt of each such Participating Underwriter of the Final Official Statement. In order to assist bidders in complying with paragraph (b)(5) of the Rule, the City will undertake, pursuant to the Ordinance and the Continuing Disclosure Agreement which shall be delivered to the successful bidder at the closing on the Bonds, to provide annual reports, certain financial information, and notices of certain events as required by Section (b)(5) of the Rule. A description of this undertaking is set forth in the Preliminary Official Statement and will also be set forth in the Final Official Statement. If bids are submitted by mail, they should be addressed to the Crowe Horwath LLP attention Jennifer Wilson, 10 West Market Street, Suite 2000, Indianapolis, Indiana 46204, telephone 317-269-6696 or email Dated this 12th day of November, 2013.

following in the footsteps of generations of Hoosier heroes. The freedoms each and every one Kruse of us enjoys should be cherished, because as former President Reagan noted they are never more than a generation away from extinction. That’s why we are so grateful for the men and women who sacrifice their lives to preserve the values and liberties we hold dear. It’s our duty to honor them any way we can, and Veterans Day is one way we can do so. May we never take our freedom – and their sacrifices – for granted. When you see someone in uniform or a veteran, please take the time to thank them for their service. May God bless our military veterans, their families and the United States of America. What do you think? Dennis Kruse (R-Auburn) is a State Senator, representing DeKalb County.
