Talent show entertains, inspires By Dave Pearce Notes from Michelle Hudson On Saturday evening at the Mount Vernon High School Performing Arts Center, local television celebrity Dan Katz served as host as the Posey County United Way gave back to the community. With the help of Consolidated Grain and Barge and local talent, a good crowd was on hand to enjoy the program. However, Posey County United Way’s Rock of Gibraltar, celebrating 30 years of United Way involvement this year, Elizabeth Baier, was unable to attend. And even though the star was not present, the show must go on. And did it ever… Board of Directors member Michelle Hudson gave a delightful and informative speech regarding the history of United Way in Posey County. The mind-boggling statistics from her speech merits parts of the speech being repeated verbatim. “What makes up 50 years?” Hudson began. “Time, Work, Dedication, and above all, Commitment and Responsibility. Mohandas Gandhi (Hindu) once said ‘We must be the Change we wish to see in the World’.” And indeed the United Way of Posey County has been the change that we have seen by improving the Mount Vernon United Way volunteer Michelle Hudson shares a quality of lives of individuals in mic with host Dan Katx during the United Way’s ‘What a Wonder- Posey County for 50 years. Those of you 50 or older, reflect ful World’ sponsored by Consolidated Grain and Barge. Photo by back and see if you remember these Dave Pearce

The group funded four agencies. The annual goal was $15,000 and $17,240 was raised. From 1962 to 1982, we had seven executive secretaries. Elizabeth Baier became the executive director in 1982 and remains the Executive Director today. Major changes began in 1991 with the Lilly Endowment and grant funding through the Indiana

North Elementary congestion gets attention By Valerie Werkmeister Traffic congestion in front of North Elementary School (NES) in Poseyville has city officials pondering solutions. Increased traffic to drop off and pick up students at NES, without a clear traffic pattern plan, has created a considerable problem. School buses have a difficult time turning off of Church Street onto Fletchall Street due to parent vehicles blocking the street. Town Marshall Doug Saltzman informed Poseyville Town Council members during their meeting last Wednesday that he has

spoken with NES Principal, Terri Waugaman, about the problem. He stated that he advised her to inform parents to not park in front of the school to pick up their children. Saltzman noted that parents currently disregard the no parking signs and yellow lines that are meant to deter parked vehicles. He added that he and officer Frank Smith have been at the school daily to try and efficiently conduct the traffic flow. Council members agreed that they would like to see the students who are not riding a bus

be dropped off and picked up on Church Street in front of the school or at the side of the school along Church Street or in back. Yellow lines along the curb on Church Street will be extended to further discourage cars from parking too close to the crosswalk. Saltzman asked the council to discuss the problem with school officials in hopes of devising a solution. Town council president Bruce Baker stated he would contact Superintendent Dr. Todd Camp to discuss the issue. Saltzman made a recommendation to extend the golf cart reg-

istration from one year to four years. Council members agreed to revise the ordinance to state that golf cart owners may choose to pay a $75 fee for a four-year registration or $25 for an annual registration fee. Saltzman added that it is the owner’s responsibility to schedule an inspection time with him for registration approval. He does not notify them. Council members asked attorney William H. Bender to send a certified letter to Michael Yancey at 56 W. Fletchall Street advising

Cost of justice rises as paupers need $70,000 By Valerie Werkmeister While the number of drug arrests and crimes solved continues to go up in Posey County, county fathers learned this week that justice comes with a price. Pauper attorney fees have cost Posey County taxpayers $70,000 in the past two months. The figure hit home as Posey County Council members were forced to approve the additional appropriation request by the Circuit Court during last week’s meeting.

Council member Ralph Weinzapfel asked if the total was indeed, $70,000 –a total of $35,000 in additional appropriation requests from each month. After receiving confirmation that it was correct, council members learned that trial costs were the cause of the expenditure. The council also approved $2,176 in additional appropriations for law books that must be updated when new laws are created or revised. While the Circuit

Court tries to plan for the expenditure during the budget process, they are not always able to predict what law book costs will be required. A $25 reimbursement request from Travis Clowers was approved. Posey County Highway Superintendent Steve Schenk requested approval on several additional appropriations that involved moving funds from the cumulative bridge fund to other line items in the bud-

get. Council members approved the following: •$30,000 from cumulative bridge to culverts •$15,000 from cumulative bridge to diesel fuel •$5,000 from cumulative bridge to contractual services •$2,000 from cumulative bridge to other services and charges Council member Tom Schneider questioned the need for the bridge

NP District’s new medical facility to be updated by Motz Construction By Valerie Werkmeister Freshman girls involved in basketball will soon be under new leadership thanks to the approval of a new freshman coach by MSD of North Posey Board members at their meeting Monday, October 9. Coach Tracy Stroud felt there were enough girls interested in the program to warrant the additional coach. The request was granted on a one-year trial basis. Superintendent Dr. Todd Camp will monitor the program to ensure there is enough participation to necessitate the additional spending. North Posey Junior High (NPJH) English teacher, Lydia Volters, presented a plan to offer an after school Drama Club to interested students. Volters plans to meet weekly on Fri-

The answer is you, the people of Posey County who give so generously of your time, your talents, and your treasure.

This is the 50-year anniversary of United Way in Posey County but also the 30th anniversary under the leadership of Elizabeth Baier. Growth under her leadership has been phenomenal both in terms of fundraising and in terms of programs.

Under Elizabeth’s leadership, the Posey County United Way has raised total of $9,324,264. Of the $10,096,281 raised over 50 years, 92 percent of that amount or $9,324,264 of the total United Way has raised in Posey County, was raised under the leadership of Elizabeth Baier.

Posey County Council, from Page 1A behind Wesselman’s to be re-built. The $1 million price tag seemed steep if the bridge is not going to be highly utilized. Schenk noted it has been out of service for five or six years. Schenk stated he didn’t know if there was a need, he was just told to build the bridge. Several council members mentioned the need to discuss the matter with the commissioners to determine if the bridge is truly needed. Keeley Winiger stated that she does receive many phone calls from local residents

complaining about the bridge being out of commission. Binding recommendations were approved on a second reading with Bethel Township Fire Department, Wadesville-Center Township Fire Department, Solid Waste District. Council members also approved the transfer of $103,214 in EDIT funds to the Rainy Day Fund. The next council meeting will be held on Tuesday, November 13, at 9 a.m. in the Hovey House.

him of town ordinance violations concerning the accumulation of abandoned vehicles and junk machinery items on the property. Poseyville Volunteer Fire Department Chief Chris Neaveill informed council members that a recent open house was well received among the community. He was also pleased to report that approximately $3,000 in donations has been received from the recent fundraising flier that was mailed to Poseyville residents. Donations are still being accepted and he anticipates receiving additional funds. Ron Fallowfield shared the council’s sentiments of appreciation to Cub Scout Pack 387, the fire department and town employees for their clean-up efforts following the Autumnfest parade. Fire trucks followed the scouts down the street to protect them from traffic as they cleaned the street and sidewalks. This year’s Autumnfest was deemed very successful thanks in part to nice weather. Posey County Prosecutor Travis Clowers attended the meeting to inquire if the council had any questions concerning the recent sentencing of former clerk-treasur-

er, Chris Lupfer. Clowers pointed out that Sally Denning committed a similar crime, but was given a much different sentencing outcome by Posey County Superior Court Judge Brent Almon. He sentenced Denning to serve four years in prison. Lupfer was sentenced to serve four years in the Department of Corrections by Vanderburgh County Judge Maurice O’Connor. He presided over the case after Almon recused himself. That sentence was then suspended to serve six months in the Posey County Community Corrections program. After taking into account good time credit served, Lupfer will only serve a total of 90 days in the Posey County Jail. Clowers added that he wanted to be accessible to the citizens of Posey County. “If there’s ever anything my office can do, please pick up the phone,” he stated. Baker noted that construction on the new town hall is moving along and progressing well. Work is continuing on the new structure on Main Street. The next meeting will be Wednesday, November 14, at 4:30 p.m. in the Poseyville Community Center.

Rollie Moss Irma E. Pfeiffer Irma Elvira (Juncker) Pfeiffer, 98, went home to be with her Lord and Savior and loved ones on Friday, October 12, 2012. She was born on August 18, 1914, in the family home at their rural Posey County farm to Andrew and Laura (Niehaus)

Juncker. Her first three years of high school were spent at Mount Vernon High School. She transferred to Reitz High School to complete her senior year by living at and working for the principal and his wife to help cover her educational expenses. After graduation she worked at the Mount Vernon Garment Factory. She married Norman Pfeiffer on August 1, 1936 and became a homemaker in 1941 with the birth of her first of two sons. To help pay for her two sons’ education at Purdue University, she went to work as a cook when Marrs Elementary School began in 1958. She was later promoted to the kitchen manager. In 1964, she left her position to help care for her ailing mother. After the death of her husband in 1974, she worked for Juncker Products for several years. In later years she helped her grandson at HAPCO, Inc. with sales and shipping. Last year, she also published two articles in Vintage Tractor Digest which told about her adventures of growing up on the farm. She attended Immanuel United Church of Christ and enjoyed watching church services on TV throughout her day. Her loved ones will remember how she enjoyed gathering fruits and nuts from the trees in her yard and sharing them with others. She loved to mow her own lawn, ride five miles per day on her stationary bicycle and never passed up homemade ice cream. The bulk of her life, however, was spent selflessly caring for others in need. Irma was preceded in death by her husband Norman Pfeiffer and her siblings, Arnold Juncker and Inez (Juncker) Pfeiffer. She is survived by her two sons; Gene Pfeiffer (daughter-in-law Jeanne) of Evansville, Ind., and Dwight Pfeiffer (daughter-in-law Susan) of Mount Vernon, Ill., and her sister Marilyn (Juncker) Seifert of Mount Vernon, Ind., and her five grandchildren; Brandon Pfeiffer (wife Charlotte), Andrea (Pfeiffer) Siener (husband Jeff), Colette Pfeiffer, Scott Pfeiffer and Darin Pfeiffer.

INGREDIENTS 1 teaspoon salt 5-6 cups fresh broccoli florets (about 1 pound of florets) 1/2 cup toasted slivered almonds 1/2 cup cooked, crumbled bacon 1/4 cup of red onion, chopped 1 cup of frozen peas, thawed (or fresh peas if you can get them) • 1 cup mayonnaise • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar • 1/4 cup honey • • • • • •

DIRECTIONS 1. Bring a large pot of water, salted with a teaspoon of salt, to a boil. Add the broccoli florets. Cook 1-2 minutes, depending on how crunchy you want the broccoli. 1 minute will turn the broccoli bright green, and leave it still pretty crunchy. 2 minutes will cook the broccoli through, but still firm. Set your timer and do not cook for more than 2 minutes, or the broccoli will get mushy. Drain the broccoli and immediately put into a bowl of ice water to stop the cooking. Let cool and drain. 2. Combine broccoli florets, almonds, crumbled bacon, chopped onion, and peas in a large serving bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk together mayonnaise, cider vinegar and honey. Add dressing to the salad and toss to mix well. Chill thoroughly before serving. Yield: Serves 4 to 6

COMMUNITY Coach Gengelbach, Kevin Wassmer named Local Legends Local author Ron Eaton has announced the soon-to-be-released Local Legends II, the sequel to the popular Local Legends that was released in 2009. The first book chronicled the rich sports history of southwestern Indiana and spanned 100 years. Featured in the first book were such area stars as Don Mattingly, Bob Griese, Gil Hodges, Calbert Cheaney, Kevin Hardy, Jay Cutler, Jamey Carroll, Aces basketball, the Mount Vernon swimming program and nearly 100 more. Local Legends II spans 60 years and includes some athletes, coaches and teams who are still competing as their legacies continue to grow. Two such subjects in the sequel are Posey County legendary coach Joe Gengelbach and golfer Kevin Wassmer. Each

has earned his place among the area’s elite, and their personal stories are revealed in the pages of LL II. Like the original, the sequel is also a beautifully-constructed, coffee table-style book that tells the stories of icons from many sports and features over 200 full-color photos. In addition to Gengelbach and Wassmer, Local Legends II includes stories about Curtis Painter, Notre Dame’s Deke Cooper, Jeff Overton, UE football, the Jim Crews era at UE and Marty Simmons, to name a few. The book is expected to arrive in early November and will retail for $44.95, but the publisher is now taking pre-orders for the commemorative edition, numbered and signed, for $39.95 for a limited time. Mr. Eaton will be visiting Poseyville

CHURCH

First Presbyterian Church of MV celebrates 175th anniversary By Pam Robinson First Presbyterian Church, 120 E. 6th Street, Mount Vernon, celebrates that “the Lord has done great things for us and we rejoice,” as it marks its 175th anniversary this coming Sunday, October 21. At 10:15 a.m., a celebratory worship will fill the sanctuary with music, stories, special guests and communion. A catered lunch will follow for members and their guests at 12:15 p.m. in the fellowship hall. In 1837, when the state of Indiana was just 21 years old, a Presbyterian missionary founded the church, only the second church to be founded in the area. It was established with 15 charter members, and by 1842, was strong enough to build a frame sanctuary on Store Street, now College Avenue. By 1872, the congregation had outgrown its building, so property was bought where the current sanctuary was dedicated October 12, 1873. Through the years, the church has witnessed many changes and additions. In 1915, to cite just one early example, the Mohler pipe organ was built into the sanctuary. The organ was electrified in 1955, and chimes were added in 1983 to honor the memory of Gordon Alldredge. The pipe organ was refurbished in both 1975 and 2010. Long after the installation of the pipe organ, in 2009, the Cave family donated a grand piano to use in the sanctuary. From the 1960s to the 1990s, major property purchases and remodeling took place, such as replacing the Klein building with a full brick education wing in 1998 to match the sanctuary structure. From 1998 to 2012, the buildings have been in constant use not only for congregational education, worship and fellowship, but also for community functions. In October, 2010, the church dedicated one of its most awe-inspiring features—a sanctuary cross, designed and built by New Harmony artist Curt Schmitt, to honor the memory of William R. Kennedy. The Mount Vernon Food Pantry was housed in the basement until January, 2012. In addition, First Presbyterian is blessed with youth active in worship and all aspects

of church functions. They serve and participate in Vacation Bible School, the Christmas program and other seasonal worship experiences. They also serve in mission. In 2011, they did maintenance on buildings at Kemerer Village, a safe haven for troubled teens, and this year, they traveled to Henryville to help and console residents of this tornado-ravaged community. As Martha Alldredge, choir director for 43 years,states, “There’s a chance for everyone to serve at our church. One day, I saw a member of our church, a prominent member in the community, on a ladder cleaning out the church gutters. No one would have known that if I hadn’t seen him that day.” Among three of the longest-standing members in the congregation, Alldredge speaks plainly about what the church should mean to any member. “I think a person should be part of a specific church because it gives them a chance to worship more fully, to love more deeply, and to serve more effectively,” she comments. “I’ve found that in our beautiful church. Just walking into our beautiful sanctuary puts me in a worshipful mood. Then, I worship through hearing the Word, and I worship through music, particularly for me. “As far as loving more deeply, I love the people there, and through them, I’ve been able to feel the love of God. They’ve been with me through some pretty tough times, and I’ve felt their love first hand. I hope I’ve been able to translate that into loving other people. “As far as serving, I like to serve there because of my love for people, especially young people. Because of my love of music, I’ve been able to be a servant. It’s my home away from home. When my kids were in junior high, I gave them keys to the church because there weren’t any cell phones then.” Another long-standing member, Janet Durham, says, “It is difficult to explain how much this church home has meant to me and my family through the years. The second night Dick and I moved to Mount Vernon in 1963, we, a family of six (one a 7-month-old), were

See more on Facebook. invited to the church’s picnic supper at . . .a cabin on the Ohio River; it’s been a love affair ever since that evening. “In so many ways, in happy days and some so sad, our church has been a safe haven and place of comfort for us all. The congregation is like family, loving and caring. Certainly, Dick, our children, and I have found God’s peace in this sanctuary.” Likewise, Bob Seitz, a man who has served the church in so many capacities, cherishes First Presbyterian. “It’s enjoyable belonging to a small church like First Presbyterian,” he says. “You get the feeling of a dedicated family. For over 40 years, I have had the pleasure of being a commissioner to the Presbytery of the Ohio Valley. During that time, many changes have been made in the presbytery bylaws. Some of those changes were major, but we’re still strong. “I helped get the food pantry started in the basement of our church, and was in charge of maintenance for many, many years. I was also clerk of session for many of those years. By serving and doing the work of the Lord, I feel like God is very close to me whenever I need

Him.” As anyone can tell from these comments, the Lord truly has been doing great things for individuals, the congregation, and the community at large. Rev. Monica Gould, the current pastor at First Presbyterian, sees the Lord continuing to do great things for the congregation, and she rejoices in the active role children and youth play in Christian education and worship. “The children grow into the different parts of worship and responsibility in the church. Our youth have witnessed their testimony about how God has helped them in serving others through mission and through Vacation Bible School and through leadership. That, for me, is one of my greatest joys,” she comments. She adds that her small congregation backs its witness with strong faithful stewardship— placing 11 percent of its budget, for example, in missions. One expects First Presbyterian Church will look back on even more great things the Lord has done and rejoice once again at its 200th anniversary celebration.

Benjamin Franklin was praising the value of the Constitution of the United States. A man who was listening to his lecture protested loudly, “It does not mean anything. Where is the happiness it guarantees?” “Friend,” said Franklin, “the Constitution guarantees you the right to pursue happiness. You have to catch

it.” It is not our position that makes us happy. It is our disposition. For the Christian, happiness is both a passing emotion and a permanent state. God gives a happiness that overrules happenings and comes as His gift to us through Jesus Christ. Those who know the happiness that comes from

God do not need happenings to keep them happy. We “catch” the happiness of God when Christ becomes our Savior and constant companion, His truth our teacher, His goodness our guide and obedience to Him our objective. Jesus said, “If you know these things, happy are you if you do them.”

Mount Vernon School budget gets through with flying colors By Pam Robinson The Mount Vernon School Board opened its Monday, Oct. 1, meeting with the public hearing on the 2013 budgets. No one in the audience of single digits commented on the budgets—not even the two challengers for school board present, Stefani Miller and Clarence Nelson, hoping to unseat Beth McFadin Higgins and Randy Boyer. With any comments left unsaid, one presumes the 2013 budgets are acceptable. With routine business conducted in due order, the remainder of the meeting focused on recognizing student achievements, confirming new hires, and celebrating unexpected funds. The Wildcats Marching Band and Color Guard and men’s tennis team were applauded for advancing to regional competition while the volleyball team was praised for winning the Big 8 championship. Miss Drew Duckworth was confirmed as a teacher assistant/remediation part-time in the after school program at West Elementary School. With gratitude, the board adopted a resolution to transfer $11,335.30 recently made available from the Indiana Department of Education from the Education Jobs Fund (stimulus money) to reimburse the Rainy Day Fund for retirement stipends spent in June, 2012. In other business: • The board declared recommended items as surplus for use by outside groups. Mentioned were a retired bus that will be donated to Black’s Township Fire and Rescue for use in training; outdated computer equipment that will be donated to United Way; and white boards that will be offered for sale to St. Philip and St. Matthew schools. If the white boards aren’t purchased by the parochial schools, they will otherwise be placed for sale. • Superintendent Tom Kopatich announced the Indiana Department of Education Scoring A-F Schools will be made available for the MSD of Mount Vernon at the next school board meeting. The Mount Vernon School Board met again Monday, October 15, 2012, at 5:45 p.m. in the junior high media center. The 2013 budgets will be adopted at that time.

Posey County United Way fundraisers announced for October This year, the local school systems – M.S.D. of Mount Vernon, M.S.D. of North Posey, St. Matthew School, St. Philip School, and St. Wendel School, are Pacesetters for the United Way campaign. They ran their United Way campaign early and results were announced at the United Way of Posey County campaign kick-off on September 19. Their early support and enthusiasm helped to get this year’s campaign off to a good start. St. Matthew School is proud to be a Pacesetter for Posey County United Way’s annual campaign again this year. Principal Vickie Wannemuehler shares, “In addition to teaching the academic standards, a very important part of our curriculum focuses on faith and values, respect for others, and service. Supporting United Way gives teachers and staff the opportunity to lead by example.” The 2012-2013 school year offers much excitement for students and teachers at St. Matthew. “Our teachers have always gone the extra mile for their students in order to ensure that each child is successful. They differentiate their instruction in order to meet each child’s learning needs and challenge them at their own level. Thanks to the success of the annual St. Matthew Men’s Club School Benefit Auction, every classroom now has an interactive board, and iPads will be purchased for the students later this fall. To be able to incorporate the latest technology into our classrooms is a blessing!” says Miss Wannemuehler. St. Matthew School has much to celebrate!

The K-5 school received a grade “A” rating from the Indiana Department of Education and is an Indiana Four Star School. The Child Care Ministry is now a Level 3 preschool on the “Paths to Quality” accreditation scale. Miss Wannemuehler would like to invite the community to come see what’s happening at St. Matthew. There are several different types of tuition assistance and scholarships available, and all faiths are welcome. To find out more about St. Matthew School and Child Care Ministry or to schedule a visit, contact Vickie Wannemuehler at 838-3621. Wayne Games, United Way of Posey County campaign chairman, announced today that the campaign has reached 23% of its $690,000 goal. He said that thanks to the community spirit and generosity of local business people, there will be fundraisers for the United Way of Posey County campaign. On 2 Tuesdays, October 23 and October 30, Tequila’s, Southwind Plaza in Mount Vernon, will donate 20% of all sales to the United Way. A coupon is required and may be obtained from any United Way volunteer or call 838-3637. On Wednesday, October 17, Michelle’s Icing on the Cake, 209 E. Water Street, in Mount Vernon, will donate 10% of all sales that day to United Way, and no coupon is required. On Thursday, October 18, the St. Philips’s Inn, 11200 Upper Mount Vernon Road, will donate 10% of all sales that day to United Way. No coupons are required for the St. Philip’s Inn. On Wednesday, October 24, Ziggy’s Sports

Pub, 16 W. Main St., in Poseyville, will donate 20% of all sales from 4 to 8:30 p.m. A coupon is required. Established in September of 2006, this is Ziggy’s Sports Pub’s first time to offer a United Way fundraiser. Formerly the Playhouse for many years, it is now owned and operated by David and Tammy Zickefoose. David (Ziggy) is from the Poseyville area and has resided here since 1975 and Tammy is from Mount Vernon. They have been married since 1995 and are raising 4 kids: Austin, Adrianna, Jordan and Brianna, and live in Stewartsville. David and Tammy Zickefoose said, “We love Poseyville and all of our local patrons. We strive to give you good food and service and believe in the family environment and friendly atmosphere.” Ziggy’s is a sports bar and is open Tuesday through Sunday (bar only on Sunday for football). It offers 7 bigscreen televisions, a full menu, and a newlyremodeled bar and dining room. Larry Williams, Manager of McKim’s IGA, announced that McKim’s parking lot rib sale will be offered again by popular demand. On Friday, October 26, from 3 p.m. – 6 p.m., a slab of pork ribs will be sold for $10 and $1 will be donated to the United Way campaign for every rib sold. Larry Williams said, “There are only 300 slabs available for the Kretschmar Rib Sale so stop in early!” Also during October, if McKim’s IGA customers turn in their store receipts, McKim’s will donate 1% of the receipt amount (except for alcohol and tobacco products, taxes, and

office services) to the United Way of Posey County campaign. Elizabeth Baier, executive director of the United Way of Posey County, said “Please turn your receipt in before leaving the store and help to ensure services are available for the Posey County community.” Funds raised in the United Way campaign go to support 21 local agencies and more than 75 programs that provide services to the people of Posey County such as Albion Fellows Bacon Center, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Buffalo Trace Council – Boy Scouts of America, Catholic Charities, Children’s Learning Center of Posey County, Christian Church Day Care Center, Community Emergency Assistance, ECHO Community Health Care, Family Matters, Homeless Shelter of Mount Vernon, Indiana Legal Services, Lampion Center, New Harmony Ministry Association, Posey County Council on Aging, Posey County Red Cross, Posey County Rehabilitation Services, The Rehabilitation Center, The Salvation Army, Visiting Nurse Association of Southwestern Indiana, WNIN Radio Reading Program, and Willow Tree of Posey County. In addition, the United Way of Posey County funds 2-1-1, the easily-remembered number to call for information and assistance about needs and resources and the new prescription drug discount program. For more information about services provided through the United Way of Posey County or volunteer opportunities available, call 838-3637 or email uwposey@sbcglobal.net.

Toyota Indiana participates in National Public Lands Day More than 40 team members from Toyota Indiana volunteered at Wirth Park Saturday to support National Public Lands Day. This year marks Toyota Indiana’s 12th year of participation in the event. National Public Lands Day, which is sponsored at locations throughout the U.S. by Toyota Motor Sales, is the nation’s largest hands-on volunteer effort to improve and enhance the public lands Americans enjoy. “This event is one that our team members look forward to every year and is our largest single volunteer event annually,” said Toyota Indiana spokeswoman Kelly Dillon. “We also donated $8,000 to cover all costs associated with today’s projects. More than 20 percent of our team members reside in Oakland City, so we are proud to support Wirth Park.” “TMMI’s volunteers helped us recover from the July 31 storm,” noted Oakland City Mayor Hugh Wirth. Projects completed at

the park included installing new playground equipment, landscaping, and clearing debris from the storm. About Toyota Indiana: Toyota Motor Manufacturing, Indiana began production in Princeton, Ind., in 1998. Today, TMMI employs about 4,100 team members from the Tri-State.

OPINION

If you get nothing else from debates, do your duty and vote Well, political season is beginning to wind down. TRUTH... But much like deer season STRANGER or duck season, when the THAN end of the season gets near FICTION and you don’t yet have your BY DAVE trophy, you can see things PEARCE sometimes get a little frantic. It’s getting much more that way. I must preface this little editorial by explaining that I grew up in Illinois. I was a grown man before I realized that a governor’s pension in other states did not include several years in “the Big House.” I thought it was perfectly normal for the governor’s mansion to have bars around it and for the governor to be holding a big long number in a close-up picture as he left office. I have attended my share of political events again this year. It is fun to see friends on both sides of the political fence. After all, despite leaning to the right in the National Election, I have my share of favorites on the left in some of the local races. But that’s another story for another day. As I walked in to the Democratic dinner on Thursday evening in Wadesville, I found out the gubernatorial candidate John Gregg doesn’t clean up too badly and that he really does have clothes besides overalls and he can speak eloquently about things of state-wide concern and not just about the small things that television ads portray. He obviously doesn’t spend all his time in the beauty shop with his mother or at the local diner with two or three of his friends. As a matter of fact, he’s quite personable and is a former university president. On the national scene, the debates have

Guest Column

been a big topic this year. Most observers and spinners seem to think the RomneyObama debate was won by Romney while it seems to be the general consensus that Biden took the Biden-Ryan vice presidential tussle. I found the presidential debate to be the more stimulating of the two. It was actually a good debate showing that there are two sides to the issues. Both men represented themselves and their party well, speaking with clarity and unabashedly about their perspectives and their solutions to the mountain of problems that face our nation. While it is clear that neither man can do it by himself and that no one party should take all the blame for the mess we’re in (there’s plenty of blame to spread all the way around), I really wonder about the impact of a vice presidential debate. But I guess it is good to get to know a little about the man who is just a heartbeat away from the presidency in the unlikely event of unforeseen circumstances. I suppose it could be said that both men put on quite a show but just to be honest, I was a bit appalled by the lack of respect and the lack of courtesy shown by our current vice president. Should the situation have been reversed and the younger man had done the interrupting, it would immediately have been said that Ryan is not old enough or mature enough to hold the office he is seeking. But I found it both appalling and distasteful that a 69-year-old man, a sitting vice president, and the man one breath away from our nation’s top seat, showed the lack of respect

for his opponent. I served on several debate teams in my educational formative years and I never was in a competition that would have allowed that type of laughing and outof-turn speaking to be a part. We would have been disqualified. However, I suppose this is politics and anything and everything is apparently allowed. I find it interesting that on one Monday, we hear that the pollsters have found that Romney is not appealing to the nation’s women and the following Monday, advertising comes out subtly addressing that issue. It seems like the pollsters are running this year’s election and its direction, not the people. Neither man will ever earn the millions it takes to get elected to the Oval Office. Neither man nor their families will get back the years they commit to the office or just to the race. Yet it is obvious, a seat in the Oval Office is a desirable goal. But regardless what you see of television or print or what you hear on the radio, I advise you to vote with your heart. A true heart

will not lead you astray. If everyone agrees to vote with a true heart instead of being influenced by first one thing and then another, the person who wins the election will be chosen “by the people.” And while all the information and misinformation and twisting of the facts is disconcerting, make sure you follow your obligation and vote. Men and women have given their lives for centuries so that you can have that right. I’ve often heard it said when discussing political issues “if you don’t vote, you can’t complain.” There’s a certain amount of truth to that. But if you don’t vote, there are a lot of soldiers in foreign countries who have died for that right. It IS your obligation, your duty, to vote. After all they have done for you, you owe it to them and their memory to do the one little thing you can do to show your appreciation…vote for the candidate of your choice. If you don’t, you really should be ashamed of yourself because you have just spit in the face of a man or woman who has fought for that right for you.

State Rep. Wendy McNamara

Own your American Dream, Part II At any level, for a government to function and operate in a highly effective manner, it must live within its means. Running a deficit that totals the entirety of what you produce is not sustainable, which is exactly the course our federal government is on as our gross debt is now 100 percent of our nation’s GDP. The US is on a troubling fiscal course as our national debt is continuing to increase over $16 trillion. To put that in perspective, every citizen – man, woman and child – would have to pay over $50,000 to cover our nation’s debt. Last year, Standards and Poor’s downgraded the nation’s credit rating; a first in the nation’s history. The US is taking on too much debt, which affects every aspect of our lives, even basic needs like employment, housing and food. Small businesses cannot accurately forecast their costs because of the high level

of economic and financial uncertainty. In Indiana, our fiscal picture is much different. The Hoosier state is one of only nine states with a triple-A credit rating from all three major credit ratings, allowing state entities, local governments and schools to borrow money for less – saving taxpayers millions of dollars in interest payments. Under Republican leadership, our state has reversed a $578 million structural deficit (FY 2004) to a $426 million surplus (FY 2013). Due to responsible budgeting and governance, Hoosier taxpayers will receive the first ever taxpayer refund when they file their 2012 income taxes in the spring of 2013. Hoosiers understand the importance of paying for what you borrow and living within your means. Our state government embodies these Hoosier principles. As one of the three main focuses of the 2013 House Republican agenda, fiscal

integrity will set the stage for economic prosperity and education opportunities. We will continue to look at ways to make government more effective and efficient. Since 2011, the General Assembly eliminated more than 40 government boards and commissions and more than 400 government appointments. We are focused on growing the private sector, not the size of government. To attract more jobs to our state, it is imperative to be fiscally conscious. The federal government need not look further than Indiana in conjuring a model for economic expansion and growth, in that less bureaucracy leads to more jobs and more taxes are not needed to reduce debt. Being a good steward of Hoosiers’ hard-earned tax dollars is of the highest importance and is a privilege that takes thoughtful consideration in providing the necessary tools and services for economic prosperity.

Gavel Gamut’s “Falling Stars” Each autumn Peg and I return to Osage County, Oklahoma to attend our family reunion at Osage Hills State Park near my hometown of Pawhuska. Those of you who have traveled out west know the trees are small and the sky is large. It is a great place to observe shooting stars; this year the stars actually hit the earth in The Land of the Great Osage. When we entered the park the place was a buzz with rumors of stars seen and obscured by security forces protecting them from the great unwashed. It turned out George Clooney, Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Ewan McGregor, Sam Shephard, Chris Cooper, Benedict Cumberbatch, Dermot Mulroney, Abigail Breslin, Juliette Lewis, Julianne Nicholson, Margo Martindale, Misty Upham, and Newell Alexander (in order of the pantheon of my pen) and too many crew members to be believed infiltrated the pastoral prairie. We, actually, Peg, was so excited. She knew who these people were (in fact, on a first name basis)! On the other hand, I thought George had died in a per-

fect storm, Chris was killed by his own CIA cronies, Julia got sick from drink-

ing polluted water, Ewan was transfixed by staring at goats and Meryl had run away to Madison County. But, Peg convinced me those were just afterthoughts of some other imaginary times and places and that we should go say hello to people she saw as good friends merely separated from her by the seventh dimension of embarrassing wealth. Peg just knew each of these luminaries was a nice person who might even be lonely due to the tragedy of tinselitis Because the last and only movie star I even met was Charles Starrett, The Durango Kid, and that was in Pawhuska sixty years ago, I deferred to Peg’s excitement and warm feelings for these fine humanitarians who she said cared deeply for all of us who spend twenty dol-

lars to cheer them on. As they were in the Osage Nation to film Tracy Letts’ story August: Osage County about incest, Medusa mothering, alcohol and drug addiction, suicide/ murder(?), and sibling hatred, it seemed reasonable the actors would be generous with those of us indigenous people they classified as belonging. I said, “Okay, we will ask for an interview for next week’s Gavel Gamut as a reward for both of our loyal readers.” It was less than one mile from our cabin to the movie location, but it turned out to be a bridge too far. No interviews were being granted and there was no admittance even for observation of these great personages. Peg was crushed. I was reassured in my iconoclasm. Well, Gentle Reader, we tried to bring a tiny sparkle of light from the stars into our drab existence. Perhaps the next time a Halley’s Comet streams past the lower castes Peg’s wish will come true and at least one of these deified denizens will graciously grant us ten minutes within the penumbra of their celestial aura.

Letters to the Editor Writer supports Richard Mourdock Dear Editor: ‘My way or the highway,” is a catch phrase that Joe Donnelly deliberately likes to implement while campaigning across the Hoosier state in a feeble attempt to paint Richard Mourdock as an uncooperative extremist. However; while running for Congress, Donnelly’s spokesman said. “He would dutifully support the ideas that the Democrats put forth” and that he did 90% of the time. Nonetheless, Donnelly went on record and stated that “Obama can change the character of Washington; he can provide leadership on energy, health care and job creation, and he will also labor hard to solve the problems in the Middle East.” In truth, Obama has done more to nurture the upheaval in that region by appeasing to the Islamic terrorists while condemning the United States as being insensitive to their prophet Mohammed. The frame of mind of Democrats and their policies is beyond reproach and is something that must be feared; furthermore, their world view is reckless as well as irresponsible. In addition, the Democrats had the majority in both Houses of Congress for the first two years, and they never even entertained the thought of working with Republicans in a bipartisan

manner. Obama arrogantly told the Republicans that. “I won the election.” Keep in mind. Joe Donnelly said, ‘The nomination of Barrack Obama would change the tone in Washington,” and Joe Donnelly has the temerity to call Richard Mourdock an extremist. To the point, unemployment has never dipped below 8% and we were promised that the $800 billion tax funded stimulus would prevent high unemployment, also, the cost of petroleum has risen by more than 100%, median income has fallen by $4,000 per house-hold, and the passage of the Health Care Bill has already begun to increase premiums. Sadly, all this will directly impact the middle class, and yes, Joe Donnelly voted for all of it: my way or the highway, Joe? Joe Donnelly advocates bipartisanship, but has a voting record that unquestionably proves that he is nothing more than a Washington insider and undoubtedly a partisan member of Congress. Obviously, Joe Donnelly has no interest in changing neither his temperament nor his biased perception of Government. In last, can we respectfully and deliberately afford to send Joe Donnelly to the United States Senate to represent our interest in a reasonable and impartial nature? Cameron Reed

Former Black Township Trustee alleges error Last week, in the October 9 issue of the Posey County News , in Legals , an error was made that I want to correct. The Legal stated that the Black Township trustee, Albert Gibbs was being sued by the Indiana Department of Revenue for unpaid taxes. Upon contacting the new trustee Lindsey Suits, who became Black Township trustee, Jan. 1, 2011, I found out that she had made a mistake filing her Indiana Tax payments for the month of February (I believe she said last year). The reason my name was involved is

because she had not taken my name off of the Indiana Department of Revenue Black Township trustee state records. Mrs. Suits has assured me that she is filling out the paper work to take my name off of the Indiana Tax Records as trustee. She is also aware that I am writing this letter as my reputation as an accountant is made questionable. With Respect Albert Gibbs, Trustee Jan 1, 1991Dec 31, 2010

Hoosier Salon opens exhibit of Hoosier Plein Air artists on Oct. 19 the generosity of exhibit sponsor, James A. Sanders, and reception sponsor, The Antique Showrooms in the Mews. Guests will appreciate the variety of subjects featured in the work of artists Pauline Amodio of Evansville, Thomas A. Himsel of Brownsburg and Jerry Botzum of Avon. Each artist’s statement describes the primary focus of their collections. Rapp notes also that each of the artists has participated in the “First Brush of Spring” Plein Air Paint Out in New Harmony, so the exhibit will include paintings of New Harmony sites and landscapes. “Painting is a form of communication between the painter and the viewer,” Pauline Amodio writes. “My paintings are autobiographical. As a body, they form a journal of the places my husband, Frank, and I have visited during our travels. The paintings are generally small, intimate works about my reactions to specific scenes. I invite you to share the experiences with me; perhaps one of them will remind you of your own experiences.” Thomas Himsel of Brownsburg paints places also, and he, too, speaks to Pictured is Evansville artist Pauline Amodio, one of three featured Hoosier artists in the autobiographical nature an exhibit opening this Friday, Oct. 19, at the Hoosier Salon New Harmony Gallery. of his paintings. “I have always been a part Photo submitted By Pam Robinson Hoosier Salon New Harmony Gallery, 507 Church Street, proudly presents the oil and watercolor paintings of three Hoosier Plein Air artists, beginning this Friday, October 19, and running through November 15.

of Mother Nature,” Himsel states. “Growing up on a farm, all of my perceptions were honed early in life to notice my surroundings and to honor the beauty of nature by respecting all of its life-giving properties. Today, as an artist, I am reconnected to my surroundings in a profound way. I now stand before the land and water with brush in hand trying to capture the immediacy of the moment. . . .The final work is as much a portrait of me as it is of what I have perceived in that context.” In contrast, Jerry Botzum hopes viewers of his paintings will “vicariously experience” the environment of the subjects in his paintings. For example, he wants his readers to identify with the rugged lifestyle of an Irish peasant. “Like all humans, artists have been endowed with perceptual understandings that go beyond merely seeing things,” he comments about his art. “As an artist, I want to offer the viewer more than a recording or a photographic likeness of the visual environment. I wish to expose the mysterious depths that lie beneath. Thereby, my viewer can look into as well as look at my painting.” Botzum refers to paintings he does during his travels as “Painted Sojourns – Temporary Stays but Lasting Impressions. He paints farms with crops or implements, boats with nautical tools or rigging, or objects that tell a tale. The public is cordially invited to meet the artists and to discuss their work with them at the opening reception this Friday. Hoosier Salon New Harmony Gallery encourages everyone to like their Facebook page, www.facebook.com/hoosiersalonNH, and to visit their website at www.hoosiersalon.org.

Smithville Awards $65,000 grant to Posey County Community Foundation The Smithville Charitable Foundation has awarded a $65,000 grant to the Posey County Community Foundation (PCCF). The Smithville Charitable Foundation is a private foundation set up by the owners of the Smithville Telephone Company. The mission of the Foundation is to benefit residents of the seventeen counties in Indiana that the Smithville Telephone Company services, including Posey County. The Smithville Charitable Foundation is making grants and partnering with community foundations to achieve its goals. The Posey County Community Foundation will add $10,000 of the grant to the Smithville Charitable Foundation Fund of Posey County. This fund is unrestricted and adds to the discre-

tionary grant dollars that are awarded to other not for profit agencies. $10,000 each will go to the PCCF Youth Council Fund, Smithville Targeting Lasting Change Fund and the Women’s Fund. This will allow these funds to continue to do the great work they are doing in the community. $20,000 was given to support a Rural Health Initiative. “Posey County ranks last in the list of counties in the state of Indiana for access to medical care, in spite of the number of physicians in Mount Vernon. Northern Posey County is facing issues such as lack of economic resources, limited transportation, and chronic illness. There is a need in Posey County that we are hoping to help address.” states Linda Kuhlenschmidt, PCCF Board President.

The Posey County News YOUR LIFE

SMOTHERMAN LOVES PLAYING TAG... FOR ESTATE TAG SALES, THAT IS

T

ownies and tourists love to hear how Jeff and Cindy Smotherman listened to their hearts nine years ago and built their dream. In restoring and remodeling New Harmony’s historic 1899 firehouse, they secured a place for their Americana antiques on the first floor of the building and for their home on the second floor. The husband and wife partners have agreed Jeff would continue to work as a sales consultant in the private sector while Cindy managed the family business. Recently, she’s added estate tag sales to the offerings at Firehouse Antiques. Her genuine enthusiasm for her work and her clients can inspire even the most cautious soul. “Everything interests me,” Cindy says. “This is what I absolutely love to do. This is my calling. I wake up every day excited about what the day is going to bring. You never know here in New Harmony who’s going to walk through your door, or what they’re going to have [forsale], or what they’re going to look for.” Her website, www.cindysmotherman.com, witnesses to the energy and intellect matching her enthusiasm. She lists “The Top Ten Reasons To Choose To Do An Estate Sale”: 1. It is a personal way to liquidate assets, and a sale can be public or private. 2. Items sell for more at an estate sale, rather than at a garage sale. 3. The seller controls pricing. You can keep items unless they sell for a certain price. 4. Liquidating an estate makes it easier to distribute to heirs or a trust. 5. Treasured items go home with a new owner who will continue to treasure them or give them as gifts—a way of recycling treasures. 6. Your items stay clean and dry and are displayed as they

would be in an antique shop, on tablecloth covered table, and priced to sell. 7. As they would do at an open house, buyers can come and go at their convenience on the days of the sale. No need to wait. 8. All items that have value sell. What does not sell, can be donated to charity for a tax deduction or kept. 9. An estate sale can be a personable gathering for family and friends to visit, share memories and buy a memento. 10. Selling estate items pay the estate sale company by a percentage of what is sold. No pricey ads or hauling fees. Free internet advertising is placed on estate sale websites with a following/email list of customers who attend the estate sales. Cindy gained her expertise in estate sales, or estate tag sales (as she refers to them) before moving to New Harmony when she started work in 1998 for a large estate sale company, still very much a going concern, in Nashville, Tenn. She learned there to manage her own estate tag sales to build a good reputation with both the seller and the buyer of the merchandise offered. Unlike an auction, an estate tag sale takes place right at the estate with items tagged and typically displayed in the rooms where they were used. This type of sale is popular not only with clients who have inherited estates, but also with clients who are downsizing their homes. Likewise, estate tag sales are the new trend for homeowners simply wanting to live with less clutter. Before the sale, Cindy travels to the estate and conducts a free consultation. “I look at what items will sell and what they’re worth. The advantage of someone like me coming is knowing the value of items. You can’t sell estate items at retail prices, but the items are going to sell a lot better if you’re knowledgeable about what’s in the home. “People need to think about what they have in their homes a little bit differently. You may be surprised what has value. That’s really the fun of it. It’s just like when you watch ‘American Pickers,’ and you’re surprised. The same thing is going to happen in your home. I guarantee you there will be something in there that will amaze you with its value.” Once the free consultation is finished, then Cindy works with the seller to determine how long a sale will take place, whether a day or two (or possibly more). She then manages the estate tag sale to provide a win-win situation for the seller and the buyer. She strictly adheres to the

time set for opening the sale and allows no advance purchases. “Everybody lines up, and I open when it’s time. It makes it fun and fair,” Cindy explains. “When the sale is scheduled to start, that’s when items are available. And I love to everything in the sale. It’s like Black Friday, but it’s not that crazy.” Cindy handles everything—from the time of the free consultation to the time she writes the seller a check. The process includes organizing every item in the estate after the family chooses mementos. “People are grieving and stressed when a loved one passes. They don’t need anything else to burden them,” she says. For clients uninterested in an estate sale at the present time, she will buy vintage Americana pieces to resell at Firehouse Antiques. She especially enjoys buying costume jewelry and vintage fine jewelry into the 1970s to place alongside her own hand-crafted jewelry line. “Those jewelry pieces are something I really enjoy researching,” she says. “But then, there’s not really anything that I don’t enjoy researching. That’s the way I learn—when a client comes along and says, ‘I have a collection I need to liquidate.’ I start with the research—at the library, on the Internet, with specialty dealers—and I become a specialist in a little of everything. I like to know a little about everything.” For more information about estate tag sales, Cindy will be happy to talk with anyone who visits Firehouse Antiques, located at 608 S. Main in New Harmony. She’s open every day except Tuesday. In addition, prospective clients may call the shop at 812-6824811. This information and much more, including testimonials about Cindy’s work, may be found at the website mentioned earlier, www. cindysmotherman.com.

Chris and Julie Valier live out family values and enrich community Mount Vernon natives Chris and Julie (Lindenberg) Valier don’t clamor for attention or hold prominent positions in community organizations. They appreciate and respect the people who possess the resources to reach out to their neighbors in these ways, but their focus remains squarely on their family. While their three children attend school, Chris and Julie work, as they always have, for long-time Posey County employers. Chris serves as the IT Manager at GAF while Julie takes on the role of amateur psychologist as she works magic on her customers’ hairstyles at Green Duck Hair Salon. They’ve been lifers at these businesses that provide them with the means to pay their bills and keep up their mortgage. Now, Julie is also training for a second career in healthcare. The Valiers know the value of hard work and stretching a dollar. Their children have inherited their strong work ethic. Jack, Lauren and Ava are definitely above average in academics and participate in extracurricular activities as well. Thirteen-year-old Jack excels in 7th grade social studies at the junior high and enjoys playing baseball as well as keeping up with the stats on his favorite team, the Cardinals. Eleven-year-old Lauren looks forward to advancing from West 5th grade to the junior high herself in the fall and plans to continue playing volleyball. Five-year-old Ava, adopted from China, matches her siblings

in academic excellence. She has earned a place in the 100 Club for writing her numbers 1 to 100 (twice) in Mrs. Vavra’s kindergarten class at West. Like her big brother and sister, she has singled out one sport, tumbling, for special consideration. For Chris and Julie, the children’s academic and extracurricular activities mean synchronizing calendars and mustering all their energy to transport and to cheer on their clan. Their after-work routine includes volunteering where needed at athletic events. No matter what’s going in their lives, Chris and Julie provide stability and normalcy for their kids. Every year, Julie continues to preserve her children’s memories by attending the Crop for the Cure scrapbooking marathon held one Saturday in March. She enjoys creating a beautiful legacy for her children while she supports the Susan G. Komen Foundation in the fight against cancer. A talented artist as well, she sets aside drawing for now to do the practical work of repainting areas in her home. She wants to maintain a comfortable home for her family. Both Julie and Chris touch lives in a positive way wherever they go—whether it’s to China to adopt a child or around the corner to Tequila’s for a family meal. They model the way we all should care about each other, far and near. “Julie and Chris both are extremely

friendly and kind,” comments Vicky Greenwell, owner of Green Duck Hair Salon. “Of course, I’ve worked with Julie over the years and seen her grow up, and she’s grown into such a beautiful person. She’s always so caring about other people and listens to them. She wants everyone to be happy and feel good, especially when things aren’t going right for people. That’s the important thing about a friend – to al-

ways be there. She’s an important example of that in our Mount Vernon neighborhood.” Members of Evansville’s Christian Fellowship Church, Chris and Julie Valier witness to a popular Bible verse: A friend loves at all times. (Proverbs 17:17) Posey County has many good neighbors, but none better than the Valiers who love everyone in spite of their own adversity.

How to register to vote: 2012

During this campaign I have enjoyed talking directly with you, the people of Posey County, about your vision for our community. As we have talked, I know we share the same vision of strong schools and job opportunities here in Posey County. A strong and safe Posey County is what I worked for as your prosecutor and it is what I will continue to work for as your State Representative.

As you head to the polls on November 6th, I ask you to send one of Posey County’s own to the State House. I ask for your vote for State Representative.

Election Day occurs every November, and it's the duty of all eligible United States citizens to exercise their right to vote. Doing so is the easiest way Americans can actively participate in government. Participating in federal, state and local government can be done in many ways, but few are as easy and important as voting. The following are a few voting guidelines to consider as Election Day approaches. Eligibility Only United States citizens can vote in federal, state and local elections. In many states, voters must be 18 years old to vote. However, some states do afford 17-year-olds the right to vote. Voter eligibility may also depend on the voter's residency. Each state has its own residency requirements. To learn the requirements in your state, visit the United States Election Assistance Commission at www.eac.gov. Registration Voters must register to vote before they can vote in an election. The National Mail Voter Registration Form is accepted in most states, and this form can be found at www.eac.gov. In addition to helping voters register, this form can be used to update one's registration due to a change of name or make a change of address or register with a particular political party. Voters may also be able to register to vote in person at various public facilities. This varies from state to state, but such facilities may include the nearest Department of Motor Vehicles office, the local election office, public assistance agencies, armed services recruitment centers or any public facility that has been designated as a voter registration agency by the state.

Vikings give school only second undisputed PAC grid crown Wes Harness surpasses Chris Sapp for most yards, most touchdowns in his career coming week, they will face their first obstacle in the team of Tell City. But the Vikings took the suspense out of Friday night’s game almost as early as possible. In a rare play, the Vikings kicked off to the Chargers and on the kick-off return, the chargers fumbled the ball. An alert senior Nick Neidig scooped up the ball and ran it in for a touchdown and 15 seconds into the game, the Vikings enjoyed a 7-0 lead and were kicking off for the second time. But the Viking defense wasted little time helping the offense get back on the field. After the Vikings held the Chargers to one yard in the first two downs, on an third-and-9 play, it would again be Neidig who would step in front of the intended receiver on an obvious passing down and after a good gain. He was brought down. After big gains by seniors Wes harness and Colton Martin, the Vikings went to the air, as they did often on Friday night. Senior quarterback Alec Werry hit Jacob Bender in stride and with just 2:37 gone in the game, the Vikings enjoyed a 13-0 lead. A little less than two minutes later, with the Vikings back on offense, Neidig again posted a big gain after a catch over the middle. Then on third and four, the Vikings again went to the air as Werry hit junior tight end Tyler Adkins on a short pass and he plowed his way into the end zone. Just like that, it was 20-0 with 6:29 still remaining in the first quarter. But the Vikings would score again in the first period after Mitchell Kuhn picked off a Dustin

By Dave Pearce Conference championships are rare in the tough Pocket Athletic Conference. An outright PAC championship is even more rare. As a matter of fact, just to show you how rare, this year’s undefeated conference championship is, North Posey Coach Joe Gengelbach now owns two…and one of them is this year. As a matter of fact, in Indiana Football Hall of Fame Coach Gengelbach’s stories 44 years of coaching at North Posey, his teams have either won or shared the title a total of only seven times. That made Friday night pretty special as the Vikings defeated Pike Central 55-6 win an undisputed title. “Our conference is extremely strong,” Gengelbach said while shaking his head. “In some conferences, you can have a loss and still win it but in this conference, you’re extremely fortunate if you are even able to tie if you lose even one game throughout the season.” As good as this year’s team has proven to be, they almost had to settle for a share of the title, were it not for the Heritage Hills Patriots “Bungle in the Jungle.” “Things were very close even this year,” Gengelbach said after Friday’s game. “With just over nine minutes to go in the Heritage Hills game, we were two scores behind and they had the ball. But we found the heart to come back and win it.” But even among all the celebrating and fun in the stands and in the locker room on Friday, it seemed something was still missing. This year’s senior class is not satisfied just to be a conference champion. Their goals are bigger and this

A Pike Central defender gets a finger on the shirt of North Posey sophomore runner Lance Inkenbrandt during action Friday night in Poseyville. The Vikings used nearly the entire bench on their way to a 55-6 rout of the Chargers and the school’s second outright PAC football title. Photo by Dave Pearce Meny pass at the 50-yard line with lots of time remaining in the quarter. It would be the Werry, Adkins, and Harness connection on the next three downs as on fourth and three at the 28, Werry found Harness out of an empty backfield and he was run out of bounds at the 13. On the very next play, Werry found Adkins again and the big strong junior went down at the two, to set up the first of what would be four Wes Harness touchdowns on the night…not that the

storied senior running back needed them. Harness came into the game trailing all-time North Posey touchdown leader Chris Sapp by one score, 60-59. With four more against the Chargers, he secured himself a place in the North Posey record book with 63, with the post-season still remaining. Harness and Sapp are often compared because of their success on the field despite different styles. Sapp gave up his place at the top of the all-time yardage list

last week when Harness gained 277 yards to surpass Sapp’s 3892 yards with 4031 of his own. Harness added 177 to that total on Friday night, as he scored a pair of touchdowns in the second quarter and another in the third before giving way to reserves with the game well in hand at 48-0 Darren O’Risky added the Vikings’ final touchdown on a five yard run with 3:48 remaining in the third period. The Chargers

Vikings dig early hole, climb back before ending year

By Dave Pearce The North Posey High School boys’ varsity soccer season came to an end this week as the Vikings fell to the Princeton Tigers in opening round action. The game was played Monday evening at Gibson Southern. Coaches always want their teams to be playing their best at tournament time and it just might have been the case for North Posey. Although Viking Coach Andy Hines’ team

did not get the win, Hines indicated that if his team had played all year like they played on Monday evening, it would have been a much better season for his squad. Down 4-1 at half-time, the Vikings knew it was win or go home and apparently, they were not ready to go home. “We got off to a bad start because we got down early on a free kick,” Hines said of the loss. “Then we had some bickering and fighting going on among ourselves. But the big thing might have been the fact that we were playing against the wind in the first half and that really hurt us.” Just how bad the wind hurt the team was evident in the second half when the team got back in a game that it appeared they were not in at the half. “We continued to kick the ball high in the first half and just weren’t being very smart,” Hines said. “And that’s when we didn’t play well at all and gave up four goals.” But that was the first half. In the second half, Hines saw a little of the fight and the enthusiasm he had hoped to see from this team earlier in the season. However, with only two seniors on the squad, the team was young and some were still getting their first taste of high school varsity soccer. “At about the 20-minute mark, we started playing and played as well as we have played all year,” Hines said of his team. “We came out and got one of the goals back to get to within 4-2 but as soon as we scored one, they came right back and got another one.” But still the Vikings did not give up. They scored a pair of goals in the next 15 minutes and with about five minutes to go, Hines said his team was knocking on the door again. “We created several opportunities that could have tied the game up for us or maybe even have won it but we just couldn’t get the ball in the back of the net,” Hines said. “It made for a very exciting 20 minutes of soccer for our fans. People were glad they

paid the money to see that 20 minutes.” Despite the rain, Titan Field was in fair condition at the beginning but by the end of the game, it was sloppy and there were several fouls toward the end. “There was nothing dirty or anything like that,” Hines said. “It was just hard to stop or hard to keep your footing.” It was the final high school soccer match for seniors Jace Gentil and Cole Simpson. And Hines had kind words for both of the young men. “If everyone worked as hard as Jace we would have a very good team,” Hines said. “And he has played varsity all four years. He had played defensive midfield and we threw him up as a striker this year, not even expecting him to come close but I think he broke the school record with 20 goals this year. He really grew as a player this year.” Hines also had words of praise for Cole Simpson, never the biggest player on the field but sometimes the one with the biggest heart. “Cole had to bide his time to get his share of minutes finally this year,” Hines said. “He is probably one of the most technical players on our team but his lack of physical size left him sometimes unable to do some of the things.” Against the Tigers, Gentil scored three of the goals while junior Reed Heathcotte scored the other. The team finished with a record of 2-12-2 as the team scored seven goals at Tell City in the last game before the sectional. “We were leading 3-2 at the half and I thought we were going to lose in the first half,” Hines said with a chuckle. “Then all of a sudden, they started playing pretty good soccer. The thing about our team is they don’t play a lot of soccer so when things get a little tough, they tend to crumble. But they do know how to play the game and against Tell City, they looked like a team that knew how to play the game.” Hines said he hopes the players that are coming back learned from this year’s team that to be successful, you have to play together as a team. In a situation like you have at North Posey where most of the payers don’t play soccer other than the season, it is up to the coach to maximize the strengths of the individual players and put them in positions to do the things they are able to do best. Hines says he is hoping for a brighter future next season, although the record this year was a little deceiving because the team was right there in most of the games, losing

Photo by Dave Pearce by one-goal margins in most of the losses. “We were really young this season in the back line as we basically returned one back liner. Max Wright and Sean Burks along with Mitchell Heldt should play a big advantage for us next year as all three of those guys are coming back,” Hines said. “Jace Brandenstein has had a tough year and got a concussion, but against Tell City he really stepped up. He had a goal and two or three assists. We look forward to having him and Reed Heathcotte healthy for the whole year.” The players who scored goals in the season’s finale were recently selected to play in the north-South All Star game next month in Indianapolis. Gentil and Heathcotte were nominated by their coach and then voted on by the selection committee based on their stats.

Lady Vikings save best for last, win three of final four spective team playing their best come tournament time. And going into the final week of the regular season, North Posey volleyball coach Natalie Barnard might have just that. For the first time all year, the North Posey Vikings won both the matches they had last week, beating Princeton in an exciting 5-game thriller while handling Wood Memorial with a little less suspense. Against Wood Memorial, the Lady Vikings came out and took care of business. While the Trojans have a couple of excellent hitters, the Viking defense kept the ball away from the big middle hitter and forced the ball to the outside hitters who, according to Barnard, were not having a good night. The Vikings handled the Trojans by scores of 25-9, 25-21, and 25-14 as Ashley Schorr had six kills and Jordan Butler had three. Hannah Harness added one in the first game In the second game, Schorr and Butler had two apiece while Tylie Robertson had two and Marlee Sims had one. In the third and final game, Schorr came up big, nailing 16 kills while Butler had eight and Morrow and Robertson each had three and Mackenzie Morrow had two. Harness added one. “Wood Memorial had a rough night but I think we took them out of their system,” Barnard said. “They had some pretty good hitters there in the front row. Their warm-ups were solid and I thought it was going to be much more challenging that what it ended up being. But you have to credit our blockers for taking away the part of the court they should have. Wood was trying to hit over our blocks and were hitting it out. It just wasn’t happening for them that night.” Senior Jordan Butler goes high for the But against Princeton, the Vikings started placement shot against Mount Vernon. slow, losing the first game 25-23.

That game went beyond how well we played against Tell City. I have the standard 15 points before the Vikings never been so excited about a loss but I was just so happy with the way we played. They could finally wrap it up at 16-14. “It was a close game throughout but for have Mackenzie Hayes on their team who some reason, we just seemed like we were no doubt is going to go Division I and our not ready to play at the beginning of this defense shut her down. We took them to four game,” Barnard said. “But in the fifth set, games and did not make it easy for them.” But the Vikings may not see Tell City as our girls were excited and motivated and wanted to win. We were actually wanting to they drew Perry Central in the first round. win it the entire time but we just weren’t able While both teams are good, Perry Central edged the Lady Marksmen in the regular to pull it all together until we had to.” The Vikings were without the services of season so one of the better teams in the tourone of their top hitters in Ashley Schorr who nament will be out right away.

Ulti- out is senior night. And Thursday’s didn’t mately, it is every team’s goal to do well in turn out too bad.

By Dave Pearce “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to heaven, we were all going direct the other way - in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only.” This quote is from Charles Dickens, in his epic “A Tale of Two Cities.” However, this week, North Posey volleyball Coach Natalie Barnard could relate. Her volleyball went to Mount Vernon on the Wildcats’ senior night and was beaten… soundly. They came back on Thursday evening on their own senior night and sprung one of the biggest surprises of the year, not only in the conference but in southern Indiana, as they handled a very good Gibson Southern volleyball team in four games. “I don’t know what team it was that came out to play against Mount Vernon but it certainly was not my original team,” Barnard said with a smile, following the Thursday night comeback. “But that was Mount Vernon and they have one terrific team. They kept us out of system the entire time. I don’t think we had more than 10 kills that entire day.” Barnard did not hesitate to give credit where it was due, saying that the Wildcats took advantage of every mistake the Lady Vikings made, and on Tuesday, they made plenty. “We were just doing anything we could do just to keep our heads above water and that

obviously was not enough,” she said. But on Thursday, perhaps the best team of the year emerged from Barnard’s locker room to face their other border rivals, the Gibson Southern Titans. “After Mount Vernon, I got them in the locker room and just told them, ‘It is just one game and we just have to move on,’” Barnard said. “Everyone has a bad day but just hopefully, you don’t all have them on the same night.” But Barnard said she believes that senior night played a role in both of this week’s contests, as Mount Vernon loses eight seniors and the Vikings will see six graduate. So it was an emotional night on both ends. “Tonight the girls came out ready to play, firing there in the first game,” Barnard said. “And, yes, they came back and edged us in the second game but the only thing we really did wrong was me made too many hitting errors. Our passing was good, our blocking was good and our sets were good. We just hit too many balls out.” But in the third and fourth games, the Vikings just played the way they are capable of playing and although the Titans did not go down without a fight, they did go down. “Our defense has come such a long way and they are reading the floor so much better,” Barnard said. “They are getting good at picking up other hitters’ tendencies and that makes a difference in a player. When you can tell where an opposing playing is going to hit from her approach, that makes you a better player.” It was obvious against the Titans as many of the points were long points. Both sides fought but in the end, only one could win. And Barnard said it is nice to see he team being rewarded with some wins as the season heads into sectional play. They won three of their final four matches. It is every coach’s goal to have their re-

North Posey’s Olivia Goebel runs in Tuesday’s cross country sectional. Goebel finished 8th overall qualifying her to run in the Regional meet on Saturday, October 13.

Pair of Posey runners advance, Waddell is champion By Steven Kochersperger Tuesday’s cross country sectional at USI went very well for two Posey County runners. Those two, Mount Vernon’s Toni Waddell and North Posey’s Olivia Goebel, finished with very impressive times and qualified to run in Saturday’s regional race at Pride’s Creek. Both went on Saturday to capture a spot in the semi-state, with Wadell finishing seventh and Goebel tenth. But it was Waddell who stole the show Tuesday. Wadell finished with a personal best time of 19:42, crossing the finish line before any of the other 72 runners in the field, making her a Sectional Champion. Goebel crossed the finish line in the eighth position

with a very impressive time of 20:44. Goebel has been a steady runner for the Vikings all season. The Mount Vernon girls team placed sixth in the sectional meet, just one place shy of moving on to compete in the Regional meet as a team. After Waddell’s great finish, Claire Schroeder finished second for the team and 36th overall in the meet with a time of 23:07. Right behind her in 37th was her teammate Mackenzie McClarney who finished with 23:09. Wildcat Katie McDonald finished 41st and Rachel Cash 46th. Rounding out the team scores were Kelly McCloud who finished in 51st and Grace Baldwin in 53rd. Overall the Wildcat team finished with an

average time of 22:48. The North Posey Viking team finished in 11th place in the meet. Goebel finished first for the Vikings while her teammate Lyndsay Calvert finished in 63rd overall. Ashley Whitfield finished in 65th with a time of

27:50 while her teammates Kaylen Lohman and Courtney Newman finished behind her to round out the team. Overall it was a great day for Posey County runners. All who competed and ran hard should be very proud of their efforts.

VIKINGS, from Page C1 scored with 38 seconds remaining in the game. Everyone on the Viking sideline saw action in Friday night’s game. Despite going to the 16 times, the Vikings still amassed 277 yards on the ground while piling up 153 in the air, a little unusual for a Gengelbach-coached team. Werry hit on 12-of-16 passes, clearly his best night of the season, to show that this year’s Vikings have another dimension. And they will need it as they drew a greatly-improved Tell City squad in the first round of the sectional. The Vikings built a big lead on the Marksmen just two weeks ago only to give up 20 points as they could not find an answer in the second half for shifty sophomore runner Elliott Brown. When asked is he thought his team would “coast” into the sectional play, Gengelbach was adamant. “That will not happen,” Gengelbach said. “This is a very focused bunch of kids. We are going to give them this weekend to enjoy this…and they should. They have earned it. But on Monday, we will start very seriously getting ready for Tell City.” Despite the lopsided score on Friday, as many as three Vikings sustained injuries, although the extent was not certain after the game. Alex Goebel injured a shoulder that was iced and taped throughout the second half while Mitchell Kuhn suffered what appeared to be a slight hamstring injury and Nick Neidig was also limping at times during the contest. “We are very concerned about stopping Brown,” Gengelbach said. “We don’t want to get into a situation to where we are playing one of those back-and-forth scoring games. We are going to concentrate very hard on making the adjustments we feel we have to make and get our kids refocused.”

Nine players got carries for the Vikings on Friday night, led by Harness. Lance Inkebrandt carried four times for 35 yards while Colton Martin carried five times for 35 yards. Nick Gries carried three times for nie yards and Dylan Wright got one carry for eight yards. Cale O’Risky carried four times for eight yards while quarterback Werry kept the twice for six yards. Carren O’Risky carried one time for five yards and back-up quarterback Aaron Droste was dropped once for a two-yard loss on a fumbled snap. Werry went to five different receivers, as well, with Martin leading the way with 33 yards. Adkins had three catches for 32 yards and a score while Neidig caught two passes for 60 yards and Harness caught two for 18. Bender also caught a pair of passes for 10 yards. Defensively, Harness had four tackles and four assists while Martin had five tackles and an assist. Kuhn and Goebel each had three solos and two assists before they went out of the game while Gary Martin had two solo tackles, two assists, and a sack for an eight yard loss and a fumble recovery. Eric O’Risky and Bryce Martin each had three solo tackles while Inkenbrandt, Griffin Weithop, Chris O’Risky, Zack Wargel, and Quinten Phillips each had a pair of solo tackles. O’Risky added three quarterback pressures and a sack to his total and Wargel was credited with three assists and a sack while Weithop had two tackles and two assists. James Marshall, Darren O’Risky. Jacob Bender, Kolby Lary, Jamon Tapp, Jace Gentil, Derek Lindauer, Blayke Dillman, Andrew Cumbee, Cale O’Risky, Jacob Kaufman, and Derek Motz each were credited with at least one solo tackle. Marshall had an interception and Bailey Porter was credited with a pair of pass deflections.

Wildcats rebound well, defense readies for tourney By Steven Kochersperger Friday night’s football game between the visiting Jasper Wildcats and the Mount Vernon Wildcats was a game played with heart and plenty of emotion. You would never think that was the case when looking at the scoreboard, but both coaches walked away happy at the end of the game. Jasper took the victory home with them as they remained undefeated beating Mount Vernon 36-0. “That’s the best 36-0 loss we’ve ever had,” Mount Vernon coach Paul Maier said after the game. “We fought. We played hard. That’s the best effort we’ve given all year long.” The game featured the play of nine seniors that are saying goodbye to their high school football days. After being honored in the pregame these seniors took to the field and gave everything they had. Coach Maier couldn’t have been more proud of his seniors. “They are a great group of young men,” Maier said. “They are gonna be very successful. You look at all nine of them and every single one of them is gonna have success in whatever they go on to do. They know how to work, they are smart and are communicators. You always hate to see your seniors go but you know they are going on to bigger and better things.” Among those seniors that played well on Friday night was running back Michael Rynkiewich. Rynkiewich, who ran the ball last year, has mainly played on the offensive line this year. But he showed up on senior night and ran the ball well for the Wildcats offense. “He runs the ball with a lot of enthusiasm and runs hard,” Maier said. Rynkiewich rushed for 161 yards on 31 carries in the game. Rynkiewich took the ball on Mount Vernon’s opening drive and ran with purpose and determination. He helped move the offense upfield picking up some very important first downs. But it would be the penalties that would hurt the Wildcats opening drive. Mount Vernon kept hurting themselves as they committed four drive-killing penalties in the opening drive of the game. The first drive of the game also featured one of the best plays of the night as well. Down 7-0 in the game, Mount Vernon found themselves at midfield despite the penalties. Facing a fourth down the Cats decided to try a fake punt. The play worked as Mount Vernon’s Craig Dick caught the pass and took the ball to the 28yard line for a first down. The Wildcats were unable to score on that drive facing on of the better defenses in the state. The quarter ended with Jasper up 7-0. The second quarter was all Jasper. Jasper, who came into the game undefeated and ranked at the top of the 4A poll, opened up the game by scoring two more times and took a 22-0 lead into the locker room at the half. In the second half the Cats continued to play hard and play with enthusiasm, but Jasper proved to be too much for the home team. Jasper scored two more times in the final half of play putting Mount Vernon away 36-0. So why would Maier be upbeat about such a loss?

It’s all about progress as they move into sectional play this week. “They (Jasper) had to work hard for those 36 points,” Maier said. “It was just a short few weeks ago that we gave up that many in one quarter. We got way more out of this game than I ever dreamed

we could. We were hoping to get this kind of effort on the field as far as the effort and the emotion that we played with and we got that times ten. I keep laughing at myself but I can’t believe how happy I am. We played our butts off. It makes next week very promising for us.”

Saint Phillips Shoot set

And with sectionals coming this Friday at Gibson Southern, Mount Vernon goes into that game believing they can make some noise. Ironically, the Titans lost for only the second time all season on Friday night as they were beaten at Southridge. “ We are gonna take the exact same approach as we did

tonight”, Maier said. “We’re gonna line up and be physical next week and hope to have the same fire as this week.” Game time for the sectional game Friday is 7 p.m. Before this past Friday night’s the game all nine seniors were honored with their parents. Those seniors, River VanZant, Ethan VanZant, Will Russell, Brian Koch, JT

Silvers, Craig Dick, Michael Rynkiewich, Hank Dausman, and Clay Ford will be missed. Also before the game Friday night, a moment of silence was held to honor the memory of Andrew Duckworth. Duckworth passed away in his sleep Thursday night and was an employee of the school district.Duckworth will also be missed by all.

The Saint Philips Conservation Club will be hosting its Annual Shoot. The event will be every Friday beginning October 19 thru November 30. Cash round are from 6:308 p.m. The 22 Rifle shoot will be from 6:30 until finished. Meat shoot sign-ups will be from 7-9 p.m., 12G and 20G shells will be furnished.
