Adams files Open Door complaint over GOP action By Dave Pearce As a result of action taken during last month’s Posey County Commissioner’s meeting, Posey County resident Ed Adams has filed a formal complaint with the Office of the Public Access Counselor concerning an alleged violation of the Open Door Law. The lone Democrat of the three Posey County Commissioners Jim Alsop, as reported by the Posey County News, appeared to be blind-sided by the removal of all three members of the Posey County Redevelopment Commission who were in office when the Republicans took over in January of this year. Commissioner President Carl Schmitz indicated that he had done research and could not find

minutes of meeting by the council which consisted of Mike Ashworth, James Scarafia, Rodney Wade and Gary Thiem. During that early October meeting, Schmitz asked Attorney William H. Bender to read a resolution the attorney had prepared prior to the meeting. The resolution # 2013-10-01-01 said the new members of the commission would include William Gillenwater III, Terry Gottman and George Postletheweight as the three new voting members. Linda O’Risky was named as a non-voting member. All their terms will expire on December 31, 2014. “This reeks of politics. I never thought we were going to get to this point. You guys have the authority to do that. I will not sign the document.

The people that have been on there have done a good job. They’ve worked at it. They haven’t had meetings because there haven’t been items [to discuss]. The fertilizer plant, at this point in time, has not identified a site. I know Mr. Ashworth has worked very hard on this. You guys do what you need to do, but I disagree with it.” “After hearing Republicans say how they were going to do everything by the book and by the code, and after sitting in the meeting where this first started, I just couldn’t believe I heard what I heard,” Adams said when contacted this week. “I did some checking into it and I called some people and after talking to several people, I just decided I would hold their (the GOP Republicans’) feet to the fire on things like this.”

Adams said a meeting of some sort, apparently with a quorum present and prior to the open meeting, was clearly a violation of the Open Door Law in his opinion. Adams is Chairman of the Posey County Democratic Party. But Posey County Republican Party Chairman indicated on Sunday there is no doubt in his mind that the complaint is politically motivated. “When Mr. Adams does soehting like this, it is politically motivated despite his denials to the contraty,” Newman said. “One of the examples I would cite is the suit filed against Chris Harp, who won the office of Posey County Treasurer. He claimed that was not policically motivated

Record corn crop expected despite heavy spring rains Special to the News The U.S. corn crop is projected to reach record production this year but won’t be quite as large as initially expected because heavy spring rain in parts of the country prevented some acres from being planted, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Friday, Nov. 8 crop production report. Indiana’s corn crop also is expected to set a record. The report gave farmers and commodities traders their first glimpse at U.S. crop production since September because the partial federal government shutdown canceled the October report. The USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service is projecting that corn production will reach 14 billion bushels, up nearly one billion bushels from the record set in 2007. While a record, Purdue Extension

agricultural economist Chris Hurt said production won’t be as high as some expected, which is good news for farmers. “There was a lot of fear coming into this report that the corn crop would be so large that prices would be extremely low,” he said. “But while yields were up substantially, prevented planting acres offset some of that.” USDA Lowered harvested corn acres by nearly 1.9 million and soybean acres by about 700,000, primarily because of land that did not get planted due to excessive spring rains. Another positive result for farmers is that USDA recognized the growing demand for the nation’s corn and soybean crops from both export buyers, such as China, and domestic buyers, such as livestock producers. “A lot of people are breathing a sigh of relief that the crop is not larger and

Sandra Burkhardt’s killer pleads guilty

By Dave Pearce The former treasurer of the Mount Vernon Youth Baseball Association could avoid jail time if he pays back the $5,000 he took from the organization last year. In a rare plea bargain agreement, Mount Vernon resident Adam Bauman pleaded guilty to eight Felony Counts Adam Bauman of Theft. He was sentenced to four years in prison; however, the sentence is suspended on the condition that he pays back $5,000 in restitution to Mount Vernon Youth Baseball. The sentencing took place in Posey Circuit Court with Judge Jim Redwine presiding. In addition to the restitution, the defendant will be subject to random drug testing as well as all other standard conditions of probation; how-

Fifty-seventh annual Lengelson family reunion held October 27 The Fifty-seventh Lengelsen Family Reunion was held at Salem United church of Christ, Heusler, on Sunday, October 27, 2013 with 39 family members and guests present. It was planned to hold the reunion at the Grebe family log house on Graff Road; however, due to the cool weather, it was decided to hold the reunion at the church. The host families of the reunion were the descendants of Ferdinand and Caroline Lengelsen Grebe. Debbie Wells welcomed everyone and invited everyone to sing the ‘Apple Seed’ song for the blessing before the basket dinner meal. After the dinner, the members were invited to guess how many ‘Lengelsen’ candy kisses were in a jar. Joseph Folz was the winner with a guess of 56 which was closest to the actual count in the jar which was 57 - in honor of the fiftyseventh reunion. The attendees also were

invited to play ‘Lengel… Bingo.’ Each person’s name that attended the reunion was written into the blank bingo squares and then as each name was drawn, the attendees marked their bingo cards. This encouraged everyone attending to learn the names and faces of their relatives. Those winning prizes were able to choose between aloe plants, jade plants, cactus, violets, pansies or 50 cent coins. The bingo winners included: Debbie Wells, Jo An Niehaus, Esther Saltzman, Diane Wolf, Angie Grebe, Blake Brooks, LaDonna Jarvis, Marilyn Thielman, Marie Folz, Jessica Wade, Ruby Grebe, Britni Teeter, Vi Lutz, and Phyllis Huff. Prizes were also awarded to the oldest member present, Viola Lutz; the youngest member present, Omelia Teeters (three-weeks-old); and the member that traveled the farthest, LaDonna Jarvis. The members also sang

Happy Birthday to Paul Uebelhack, whose birthday is October 28. After the games, a brief business meeting was held to determine next year’s host families: the descendants of the Matilda (Hering) Kleinknecht family. Viola Lutz also gave a brief talk about Glibert Strueh’s book of poems. Gilbert is Viola’s brother who lives in Louisiana and has published a book of inspiring poems. The book can be ordered from Barnes and Noble or from the internet. Pauline Burgdorf also discussed the Lengelsen family book that was compiled last year prior to last year’s reunion. Pauline mentioned that there were several mistakes in the book, which has also been noted by other family members. Pauline encouraged Lengelson family members to make corrections and give them to her so that a more accurate family history can be compiled.

COMMUNITY ‘A Little Bit Testy’ to run November 14-16 WMI News On November 14, 15 and 16, the Mount Vernon Thespian Troupe will be performing their annual Fall Play. This year’s production is titled ‘A Little Bit Testy.’ It features two one acts, both dealing with the stresses that high school students experience. The first act, ‘This Is A Test,’ by Stephen Gregg, tells the story of Alan, a young sophomore, who has stayed up all night studying for a test. Unfortunately he can’t seem to remember anything he studied. Once he gets the test he has a hard time concentrating and his mind often wanders. His inner most thoughts are articulated by a three person chorus who help the audience understand the kind of guy Alan is. As time goes by Alan becomes less and less focused and notices some bizarre activity going on by his fellow classmates. Alan is played by Senior Mikey Stevens-Emerson. “My character pulls an all-nighter, blanks on the test, and discovers that his classmates learned the entire Chinese language while he was at a dental appointment. We’ve all had similar, though hopefully not as horrible, situations. Watching Alan navigate the mess is a hilarious and educational experience,� states Mikey Stevens-Emerson. The second act is ‘Perfect Score’ by Katie Henry. Four friends, a hippie, a jock, a perfectionist, and a slacker, negotiate the college application process as graduation day rapidly approaches. SATs and GPAs are just a part of their worries, as senioritis, awkward interviews, and the pressure to succeed provide even bigger hurdles in the race to the fat-envelope finish line. Real life Seniors Melanie Davis, Marshall Hadley, and Austin Denning portray three of the four friends. “This play is almost an exact paradigm of what all seniors face during our last year of high school. Except for a few minor details, and the names changed around to protect the innocent. Reading the lines was as if the playwright had crept into my house with a tape recorder,� shares Marshall Hadley. “The show is scarily accurate when it comes to my own senior year. I’m doing the show with my best friends, and we’re all worried about what’s going to happen come May. When my character, Hannah, talks about leaving her best friends and starting over, it’s really me talking to friends I’ve had since I was twelve,� states Melanie Davis. “‘Perfect Score’ is not just a play, it has become my entire life. I am currently living the life of the character that I portray, James. He is a senior that gets caught up in the missed deadlines, friends, and college applications. He worries that he will not get accepted into any colleges. This play has many bittersweet moments for all of my fellow seniors,� shares Austin Denning. Be sure to check out this night of theater. The show starts at 7:30 p.m. and will be performed at the Mount Vernon Senior High School Performing Arts Center. All seats are $5. For information, please call 812-833-5932. Photo by Studio B

Moffett’s ‘Many Paths’ to be on display Susan Phillips Moffett has been a Fine Art Faculty member at Indiana University Southeast since 1983, where she has taught Printmaking and Drawing. In addition, Moffett has exhibited in 45 group shows and two solo shows throughout the United States as well as abroad in Ireland, Poland and Australia. Her work is in numerous public and private collections. Moffett has also received several awards and grants. From Moffett’s Artist Statement, ‘Many Paths’ refers to the diverse threads the artist brings together in her artwork. A variety of media (drawing, woodcut, collage and etching) and expression both challenges and excites. We are multi-dimensional beings; it is fitting that our paths of expression are varied and rich...continuing Moffett explores contrasts...the yin/yang of ancient and new, solid and fragile, light and dark, smooth and rough are fascinating avenues of comparison. Moffett enjoys the medium of charcoal for the drama of strong value contrasts and pastels for their rich color and fluidity.’ Moffett is a founding member of PYRO Gallery in Louisville, Ky. She is also represented by Ro2 Art in Dallas, Texas. Moffett grew up in Dallas, Texas and lives in southern Indiana with her husband Scott Borden. ‘Many Paths’ will be on display from November through January 26, 2014, at the Women’s Institute and Gallery, 916 E. Granary Street, New Harmony, Ind. The opening Artist Reception will be Saturday, November 23, 4 -7 p.m. during the Fall Gallery and Shoppe Stroll. It is free and open to the public with refreshments. Gallery Hours: Fri.-Sat. 10 a.m. - 5 p.m., Sun. Noon - 5 p.m.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Make the crust by combining the graham cracker crumbs with the melted butter and 1 tablespoon sugar in a medium bowl. Stir well enough to coat all of the crumbs with the butter, but not so much as to turn the mixture into paste. Keep it crumbly. Press the crumbs onto the bottom and about two-thirds of the way up the sides of a springform pan. You don’t want the crust to form all of the way up the back of each slice of cheesecake. Bake the crust for 5 minutes, then set it aside until you are ready to fill it. In a large mixing bowl, combine the cream cheese, 1 cup sugar, and vanilla. Mix with an electric mixer until smooth. Add the pumpkin, eggs, cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice and continue to beat until smooth and creamy. Pour the filling into the pan. Bake for 60 to 70 minutes. The top will turn a bit darker at this point. Remove from the oven and allow the cheesecake to cool. When the cheesecake has come to room temperature, put it into the refrigerator. When the cheesecake has chilled, remove the pan sides and cut the cake into 8 equal pieces. Use dental floss to make a clean cut. Serve with a generous portion of whipped cream on top. Serves 8

BBBS to host concert with BLEND The acappella doo wop group BLEND will perform their 50’s and 60’s hits in a two-hour concert on Friday, November 15 at Wesley Hall, First United Methodist Church, Mount Vernon, Ind. First Bank of Mount Vernon is sponsoring the 7 p.m. concert benefiting Big Brothers Big Sisters of Posey County. This talented group is a Posey County favorite with their last performance at the 2013 Mount Vernon River Days. Advance tickets cost $10 for adults and $5 for students and are available by calling Kay Kilgore at 483-2922 or Beth Schilling 7810450. Tickets sold at the door will be $12 for adults and $7 for students. BLEND, whose base location is in Illinois, was formed in 2005 for a talent show and ended up winning it. From there they found a unique sound and decided to pursue it as a career. The real strength of BLEND lies in their ability to entertain crowds of all ages with their renditions of songs which most everyone has heard, all while keeping a Christian undertone. On top of their classic doo-wop routine, they are also a deeply spiritual group and love to share their gospel music as well. Some local churches in Mount Vernon have been blessed by their Sunday morning southern gospel music. In 2008, BLEND appeared as special guests at the Dick Clark American Band Stand Theater in Branson, Missouri leading to an offer to perform their show in Branson on a regular basis. They had to decline the great opportunity due to their dedication to their education. Today they tour the country year-round performing their ‘Forever Doo-Wop, a tribute to the 50’s & 60’s’ and ‘Jukebox Memories, a musical journey through yesteryear’ acts. A schedule of their appearances can be found on their website: Being the child of a single mother, Johnathan Estes, the group’s lead singer, became a Big Brother in 2005. “I knew I wanted to be a positive role model for a ‘Little.’ Becoming a ‘Big’ was a challenging, yet very growing experience for me. It taught me a lot about

responsibility, patience, and loving. My first ‘Little’ longed for love and acceptance. We had a friendship that became like two brothers.” Johnathan’s ‘Little’ wound up moving away but his dedication to the program didn’t end here. “After seeing the influence I could have on one’s life, I decided to be a ‘Big’ again. It is definitely an experience that changed my life for the better. I would recommend being a ‘Big’ to others. I think so many times, we become blind to the fact that we just might learn and become more of a well-defined person from being such a positive influence to a ‘Little.’” There is a tremendous need for BBBS programs in Posey County. According to information from Kids Count Data Center, 16.9 percent of the county’s children live in poverty and 33 percent of the county’s public school students are on free or reduced-priced lunch; both measures have increased significantly this past year. These children are considered at risk and are our target population. Currently in Posey County, less than 3 percent of these atrisk children are being served by BBBS and the organization continues to look for mentors. There is a waiting list of children wanting a Big Brother or Big Sister. BBBS is the largest, oldest (over 100 years), and most successful mentoring organization in the U.S. They have had a presence in the TriState area now for over 50 years and are now in eight counties in southwest Indiana. Since September, 2010, the Posey County group has made much progress. This United Way Agency has raised over $100,000, started a student mentoring program at North Posey School that has served 85 students, made 11 matches with at-risk students and adult volunteers throughout the county, and hired a parttime case manager to administer the mentoring programs. If you would like tickets or to volunteer with BBBS, please contact Kilgore at 483-2922 or Beth Schilling at 781-0451.

Sermon of the Week: Saints Alive By The Rev. Sean Esterline, Messiah Lutheran Church, Evansville Please read Revelation 7:9-17 … okay, now that you’ve done that, please read on. “After this I looked, and behold, a great multitude that no one could number, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages...” Who are they? People who have died! That's right! People who have died, who are really more alive than ever! Can you imagine the grandeur and glory of looking at a majestic sight like this throng of saints in heaven? St. John stared at that "great white host", that huge crowd of people wearing white robes in heaven, and he was so wrapped up in the awe of the sight that one of the elders tried to get him to realize what he was looking at, so he asked him, "Who are these, clothed in white robes, and from where have them come?" The answer? They are people who trusted in Jesus Christ as their Lord and savior, and are now with Him in heaven! Even though we saw them die, even though we buried them, even though we miss them very much, the message of this text is loud and clear: these saints of God that once were with us are not dead, they are more alive than ever! They have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. Each person called a saint got to heaven not because they were so good, not because of the things that they did on this earth, but because they are forgiven by the blood of Jesus. That concept, that these robed saints have been washed clean and white by blood, seems like a contradiction. However, in the Old Testament, God made it very clear that the only way sin could be paid for was by

the shedding of blood. Hebrews 9:22 reminds us of that truth: “In fact, the law requires that nearly everything be cleansed with blood, and without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness.” God required His people all through the Old Testament to kill thousands and thousands of animals, sprinkle the blood on the altar (and even on the people!) in order to make the point that sin is very serious. Even in our society today, the most serious sins are those that involve the shedding of blood. So, how much blood do you owe God because of your sin? Well, don't worry, because your blood is worthless - its contaminated with original sin and God made it clear a long time ago that He isn't accepting our diseased blood to pay for sin. That's what's so wonderful about the sermon text for this morning. The people in St. John's vision are saints. They are holy. And we knew some of them! We can look in the Bible at people like Noah, who got drunk after the flood, or King David who committed adultery and murder, or the thief on the cross whom Jesus promised to take to heaven. “After this I looked and behold, a great multitude that no one could number... clothed in white robes with palm branches in their hands.” Look up to heaven! There they are! So are all your Christian relatives and friends. They are there too. Noah and David and the thief and your friends and relatives all were infected with the same blood contamination that you and I are infected with - original sin. But they are in heaven, because, as the Bible says, they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the lamb. Think of what doctors would give to have an unlimited blood bank that would serve as a cure for all blood-born diseases in our world - things like leukemia or hemophilia - and then realize that we have God’s spiritual blood bank here in the cup of salvation that is shared with us each time we come here to celebrate the Lord's Supper. In fact, whenever we celebrate the Lord’s Supper, and especially when we read this text so near to All Saints Day, we can see the faces all the people we know, all our family and friends that have gone on to be with the Lord. I can see my father, my grandparents, I can see the members of the church that I have buried, I can see their faces being at their heavenly rest with God. The Bible even tells us about the restful, perfect communion that they have with God: "they are before the throne of God and serve him day and night in his temple; and he who sits on the throne will shelter them with his presence. They shall hunger no more; neither thirst anymore. The sun shall not strike them, nor any scorching heat. For the Lamb in the midst of the throne will be their shepherd; and he will guide them to springs of living water. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.” Can you imagine how wonderful that communion is? Would you like to never cry again? Would you like to never have pain again? Would you like to never have your heart broken, ever again? Would you like to never feel lonely, ever again? Would you like to never have any problems ever again? God promises all of this to those who believe and trust in Him for salvation! Evangelist Dwight Moody once said, "Someday you will read in the paper that D.L. Moody is dead. Don't you believe a word of it! At that moment I shall be more alive than ever; I shall have gone up higher, that is all - out of this old clay tenement into a house that is immortal. That same bliss awaits you, for Jesus Christ has paid the penalty of your sins and calls you into a relationship with Him that will result in His taking You to heaven on the last day.” You can rest assured that through the gift of faith in Jesus Christ, your salvation is as certain as the eternal life that has been given to all the Saints who have gone before you. As we honor their memories with our lives, we also anticipate following along behind them in our death and resurrection.... and we know that this great gift is certainly ours through the words that God has given us: all your sins have been forgiven, in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, Amen.

School Board begins with moment of silence By Lois Mittino Gray The Mount Vernon School Board opened its November 4 meeting with a moment of silence in memoriam for Carl Breeze, a maintenance man with the district for over 31 years, and for high school student Christian Papenmeier. A public hearing was convened for citizen comments on School Superintendent Tom Kopatich’s 2014 employment contract. It proposes a 2.1 percent increase over last year’s salary of $93,780 for 255 contract days, 20 vacation and 20 leave days, insurance valued at $10,806.12 and 2.5 percent of the salary going into a 401A account. There were no remonstrators present. Kopatich recognized the achievements of several groups, starting with the Mount Vernon High School Spell Bowl Team. They re-

cently won the Area Competition and are now ranked first in the Big 8 Conference and sixth in Class II statewide. He praised the tremendous job the band did in placing tenth at the state competition in Indianapolis. “They loved playing on the Lucas Oil Field and strive to make it again next year. The more you go, the more you get noticed,” he said. “We were the only band of the ten not there last year and we want to become veterans at it, too.” The superintendent also praised the hard work of the six Future Farmers of America students and advisor who participated in the national convention in Louisville. Kopatich attended with them and called it an “intense conference with 55, 000 bluecoats and Rick Pitino as an excellent keynote speaker.” Science ISTEP scores are

‘Burkhardt’ continued from Page A1

Gibson County Sheriff George Ballard says Davidson stole cars, guns, and murdered a Posey County grandmother during a spree that spanned hundreds of miles in two states. But what drove him to such violence still remains a mystery. About 10 p.m. on a Friday night back in August, Burkhardt left her job at Wal-mart in Princeton to take care of her grandchild in Poseyville. About an hour later, her daughter arrived home and her child was there, but Sandra was gone. From there Sheriff Ballard says Davidson committed a burglary in Spurgeon, then another burglary in Winslow. Then around 4:30 Saturday afternoon,

now in, but state average scores are not released as yet. “It’s looking good that we will be in line with state scores. We are overall up from last year with scores in the 80’s at elementary level and in the 70’s at junior high level,” Kopatich said In other board action: • In personnel matters, the board accepted the resignation of Don Jackson as a bus driver and confirmed the employment of Sharon Berry as a custodian at the high school and Sarah Henning as a teacher assistant at Marrs. Robert McBride Jr. was hired as a building maintenance technician at the high school and Stacy Ross will be a bus attendant and substitute driver for Route 63. • Ten people were given permission to attend five different workshops/meetings, including an educational tech-

deputies spotted a stolen white SUV a few miles east of Pike Central High School. It was there that Ballard says Davidson surrendered with a 9mm handgun and a stolen shotgun. He also told them where to find Sandra’s wrecked silver Ford Focus. “There was no clear-cut motive. There doesn’t appear to be and I think the main thing, he just wanted a ride over to Illinois and she had a car. He had a gun he’d stolen from a neighbor,” Sheriff Ballard said. Once in custody, Davidson was treated for an injury and questioned in Princeton. That’s when Ballard says Davidson told investigators where to find Sandra’s body near Crossville, Ill.

nology conference and ‘Kids Count’ conference. • The board entered into an agreement with Evansville Teachers Federal Credit Union for a debit reward card program. It will not be ready for the holiday shopping season, but it will be advertised and announced when cards are ready at the credit union office. • Approved a revised Management and Non-Union wage and benefit package for the school year as amended to include a stipend to be paid in November for nurses and home school advisors, who were inadvertently left off the package when it was approved. • Gave permission to advertise for two new 84 passenger transit buses to be paid for from the Bus Replacement Fund. They will be opened December 5 at 10 a.m. and voted on at the December 16 meeting. Old buses are traded in the sale. • Thanked the County Commissioners and Common Council for their help approving the application for the $50,000 matching safety grant, which was received, and will be used for bus safety. • The next board meeting is Monday, November 18, 2013 at 5:45 p.m. at the Mount Vernon Junior High School. The board will be discussing a bullying policy for the district as now required by state statute.

USI Trustees approve new master’s degree

At its regular meeting on November 7, 2013, the University of Southern Indiana Board of Trustees approved a proposal for a new Master of Arts in English degree program within the College of Liberal Arts. The proposal now goes before the Commission for Higher Education for final approval. The program will offer advanced studies in English for secondary education instructors to develop credentials required to teach dual credit courses in regional high schools; provide opportunities to teach in two- and four-year post-secondary institutions, and enhance the expertise of professional writers in the area workforce. Information from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics and the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System shows that the workforce in jobs traditionally held by English graduates is underdeveloped in the state of Indiana. Categories designated as common options for English graduates are expected to see strong growth, including editors, technical writers, authors, public relations specialists, and postsecondary educators. The proposed Master of Arts in English will allow current and future members of the workforce to gain greater levels of expertise in fields that are projected to grow. The board also approved an authorizing resolution for renovation of the lower level of the Science Center and selected areas of the Technology Center. Renovation of the Biology Department on the lower level of the Science Center, the University’s oldest academic facility, will complete a multi-year renovation program of the building that first saw the Mathematics and Chemistry departments renovated. The proposed Technology Center renovation completes a multi-phase upgrading of the second-oldest academic building on campus. In other business the board approved candidates for doctoral, Last Wednesday, teachers and faculty of Farmersville Elementary School participated in this year’s Jeans for master, baccalaureate, and associate degrees to be conferred at the Troops Day.

Williams participates in Butler Break MOUNT VERNON


Shayna Williams of Mount Vernon Ind., was one of 77 Butler University students to participate in Fall Alternative Break, an annual service trip where Butler students travel to various locations throughout the United States to assist communities in need in various ways. Each year, the location and project conducted are changed, but the basic service premise behind the trip remains the same. Students traveled to Mullens, West Virginia for this year’s Fall Alternative Break, where they worked with the Rural Appalachia Improvement League to build trails and clean up a local park in the community.

The University of Southern Indiana Theatre continues its 2013 fall season with three-time Tony Award-winning comedy In the Next Room or the vibrator play, by Sarah Ruhl. The show is set in the 1890s, when the use of the newly developed electric vibrator was gaining popularity with doctors as a way to treat women’s hysteria. The show explores different aspects of women’s lives during the Victorian era, when women were raised to believe sex was something to be endured, not enjoyed. Performances of In the Next Room or the vibrator play run November 15-17 and 19-22 in the Mallette Studio Theatre on the lower level of the Liberal Arts Center on USI’s campus. The play is directed by Elliot Wasserman, chair of the Department of Performing Arts at USI. He will be joined by a design team of USI students including Lyndsay Hill as costume designer, Erik McCandless as lighting designer, Zach Gent as scenic designer, and Mikael Drobny and Daniel Harris as co-sound designers. The cast includes USI students Danielle Scott as Catherine Givings, Craig Patterson as Dr. Givings, Gwendolyn Snow as Sabrina Daldry, Taylor Kearschner as Annie, Nolan Spinks as Leo Irving, Enjoli Drake as Elizabeth, and Scott Cummings as Mr. Daldry. Tickets are $7 for USI students, $12 for adults, and $10 for seniors (60+) and non-USI students. To purchase tickets or for more information, visit or call the box office at 812/465-1668. The production contains adult themes. The remaining lineup for USI Theatre’s 2013-2014 season includes Medea by Robinson Jeffers and freely adapted from Euripides opening the spring season and running February 21-28. The final show of the spring season, Next to Normal with music by Tom Kitt and book and lyrics by Brian Yorkey, is part of the Repertory Project –a co-production of New Harmony Theatre and USI Theatre, and will run April 4-13. Tickets for the upcoming production are on sale now. NORTH POSEY

Goldman, Willis bring new consignment to Northern Posey County By Theresa Bratcher Sometimes, things just fall into place. That is what happened to Angie Goldman and Amy Wills recently. The idea of opening their own consignment shop had been sitting out there for years, just waiting for the right time. A few weeks ago, they found the right spot, started setting up and a week later were open for business. “We have been wanting to do this for a long time,” shares Angie. “We’ve had a good start with a lot of customers walking through the door without our having done any advertising yet.” At this time they work on a consignment basis only. There is a $10 yearly fee and when items are sold the money is split 50/50. At some point they hope to be able to just buy your items outright. Although they are not set up yet to take furniture or large items, they do offer mens, womens, and childrens clothing, shoes, household items, bikes, tools, toys, seasonal items, etc. The name ‘My Sister’s Closet’ is based on the fact that Angie and Amy are sisters, however it is truly a family based business with mom, Judith Crabtree being the owner, and Amy’s daughter, Jourdan Wills being a salesperson and ad-

Southern Drawl On Monday Oct. 28, I dropped by to see Doctor Dwayne Ackerman to ask him if I could do a article on him and his business. He told me he started in Wadesville in 1991, eventually he built his new

ministrator. While sister Amy has previous experience in the consignment industry having worked for years at Margaret’s in Poseyville, the only ‘real’ experience Angie has is from the buying aspect. “We’ve shopped at consignments stores all our lives,” shares Angie. “We are very excited to be able to offer good quality items at an affordable price, especially in today’s economy.” After much research online, Angie discovered the fact that having multiple resale/consignment shops in one area leads shoppers to ‘mark out their route’ to visit all at one time, thus helping out other businesses in the community. “Hopefully our little shop will benefit Posey County as a whole,” she Jourdan Wills, Amy Wills, Angie Goldman, and Juenthusiastically shared. A Grand Opening will be held Wednesday, November 13 dith Crabtree of My Sister’s Closet.

THANKSGIVING SPECIAL smer, office personel. Jason Young does Physical Therapy two days a week (Monday and Friday) and his trainers are Pat Watson, Sarah Gray and Dan Franklin. Doctor Ackerman told me his biggest fear is Obama Care. How is it going to effect his office? Can he keep the doors open, or will the new law run him out of business? His goal is to keep the Chiropractic and Fitness Center open and affordable to people, he is pretty sure he will be able to do this. Doctor Ackerman loves his job and looks forward to going to work each day. He has no desire to work anywhere else and hopes he is providing a good value for what they charge. Primarily as a chiropractor, he does work on the neck, lower back, and headaches. Jason Young PT, takes care of joint rehab, knees and back.

MV Edward Jones supports Toys for Tots Drive Derrick Wells, a local Edward Jones financial advisor, is supporting the Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots program by using his office as a drop-off location for this year’s toy drive. Local residents may help needy children in the area by bringing in a new, unwrapped toy to the office, at 431 E Fourth Street,

Mount Vernon, IN 47620, during regular business hours beginning November 5, 2013 through December 19, 2013. “With the holiday season around the corner, we are all getting ready for the festivities,” Wells said. “And as this is the season of giving, now is a great time to remember the less fortunate in our community.”

Since late Spring/early Summer they have started using something new, infra-red light. It is used for Peripheral Neuropathy. This treatment is used to combat the side affects of diabetes and chemo and is not painful. Just ask Dale Martin (diabetes) and Jim Ackerman (chemo). Doc says at least half of the patients that see him would not need to, if they would exercise. Doctor Ackerman has always been a strong believer of exercise, which is why he started the fitness center. I checked with my orthopedic doctor, Gary Moore, and both doctors agree I have arthritis in my lower back. So I have once again enrolled in the fitness center - they both agree exercise is what’s best. So as you can see, I am not just talking out of the side of my mouth, I really believe in this.

Cost of keeping up continues to rise By Valerie Werkmeister Posey County has some big checks to write as their needs for updated technology grows. The problem is, where will the money come from? Keely Winiger, Posey County Commissioners’ Executive Assistant presented the commissioners with a litany of necessary technology expenses during their November 5, meeting. During the last meeting, she explained that many county computers fell subject to a computer virus that crippled their system. It also exposed a number of weaknesses and needs that must be addressed in order for county employees to do their jobs effectively and efficiently. Charlie Chambliss, the county’s IT director was recently on medical leave and has since resigned. Without a current contract to service IT needs, the county would have to pay a company $80 to $100 per hour to service the growing number of problem tickets they have. The county signed a short-term contract with AOS to administer to the immediate needs at an agreed upon cost of $73,000-$76,000. That contract expired on October 31. Winiger stated she formed an IT department comprised of individuals from each county building to develop a plan. Now, the county must decide how to move forward. Winiger explained the first item they needed to approve was the removal of a sprinkler system in the computer room. A halon gas system will be installed in its place by Simplex Grinnell for $6,952. Winiger introduced Justin Faith of AOS who helped explained the proposal he created that would cover the county

from November 11 – December 11. He advised the county resources are not in line with their needs. There are currently 32 work stations and laptops that have Windows XP installed. Due to the April 8, 2014 end of life date for Windows XP, those work stations are at a greater risk for impending problems. The cost to install the new machines will cost $27,596 and an additional cost of $6,831 will update all the other computers for a total cost of $34,427. Winiger stated the various county government departments will pool additional funds from each other budgets to help cover this cost. Both Faith and Winiger stressed the IT problems the county is currently facing are by no fault of Chambliss. “You had one individual that was trying to take care of five locations. We were actually working with the highway department the entire time. One individual trying to take on the needs of the six locations at any given time is too much for one person. So a lot of it fell into a reactive state. You didn’t have proactive type maintenance or enough time to think of a longterm strategy,” Faith said. He added the county’s infrastructure has fallen into decay. Faith proposed an emergency service contract that would provide for current day-to-day needs as well as formulate a long-term strategy plan. A three-person team from AOS would install the new work stations and handle all other IT needs for $36,845 from November 11 – December 11. He explained that once the new work stations are up and running, the hope would be that the day-to-day service needs would decrease. Winiger

stated she believes she is close to finding funding for most of the contract cost, but may need to find additional sources for funding. Proposals for long-term contracts were also discussed. One option for a three-year contract came with a $263,700 price tag. The contract would cover the county’s daily IT needs. A third option cost $195,660 for three years but could actually cost more in the long run as hourly service tech fees would be charged at a higher rate. A decision for a long-term contract was tabled until the plan could be presented to the county council for discussion. Commissioners did not make a decision regarding a feasibility study for the jail. All agreed more time was needed to read through a report on the subject matter before they could select Bond Council. They tabled the matter until the next meeting. They agreed to retain Barnes and Thornburg to administer the additional bonds for the Midwest Fertilizer Plant. President Carl Schmitz explained the county’s original agreement with the firm only covered $1.3 billion in bonds. The bonds have increased as the plant is now worth more and the commissioners must sign a new agreement to handle the increase. Commissioner Jim Alsop stated he felt they should seek bids from other firms. Schmitz and Jerry Walden disagreed and voted to retain Barnes and Thornburg. Building Commissioner Ed Battieger gave the commissioners a report on the number of building permits issued through October 1, that included: 300 miscellaneous; 25 residential; 72 additions or

remodels; and 36 commercial for a total of $7 million. Alsop asked for feedback on the new employee handbook. He hopes the new version will be ready for approval in early December. In other business, the commissioners approved the following: • Treasurer Justin White’s request to sign a letter of authorization with ThompsonReuters. The company handles printing tax statements for the county. White stated he estimated the cost to process and mail the statements would be $15,280, as long as postage costs didn’t increase. • The reappointment of James Culley and Suzanne Buchanan on the Health Board. Both of their terms expire at the end of the year and have agreed to serve again. • A $95,880 bid from Don Koester Construction to build a new salt/sand storage buildingfor the highway department. • The commissioners agreed to appoint Don Mattingly as their representative to serve on the Wadesville-Blairsville Regional Sewer District. • A request by Steve Schenk to pay $100 for four months to JH Rudolph & Co. to rent their storage site on St. Phillips Rd. The site is a midway point that saves the county time and money. • A request by Nancy Hoehn to hire Bernardin Lochmueller and Associates to complete the Americans with Disability Act study for the county. • Alsop agreed to serve on a board to work on security in the circuit court buildings. Judge Redwine advised the measure is a mandate by the Indiana Supreme Court.

‘Adams’ continued from Page A1 either but everybody who is familiar with the situation knows that it is completely politically motivated.This is no different than that.” When Adams was asked what hoped to achieve by filing the complaint, Adams indicated that he would like to see the reinstatement of the three individuals who were serving on the commission prior to the Commissioner’s decision. “I will just have to wait to hear the opinion of the (Public Access) Counselor

and I would hope that in his opinion, he would have the recommendation to reserves what was done,” Adams said. “I don’t know that it will happen that way but I just don’t think it was the right way to do things.” Adams said he hoped the complaint would send a message for the future that things need to be done the way the law contends, in an open meeting. “Personally, I think the attorney they have in there has been diving them some bad advice,” Adams said of County NORTH POSEY


Attorney. “That’s why they did what they did. I think he could have provided guidance on this to the commissioners. Schmitz contended that the group’s inactivity led him to propose the new members. Commissioner Jerry Walden was in agreement with his proposal and seconded the motion to propose new members. Commissioner Schmitz, according to the complaint, will have until November 12 to respond to the complaint. After such time has expired, the Public Access Counselor will then have until November 27 to give his opinion on the case.

‘Crop’ continued from Page A1 that there’s a growing demand base for the crops produced,” Hurt said. “This report might provide a bottom for prices.” The USDA currently is estimating the national average farm-level corn price for the 2013 crop will be $4.50 per bushel, compared with $6.89 per bushel for the 2012 crop. USDA projected national soybean production to reach 3.26 billion bushels, which would represent the third-largest crop on record. The national average price received for 2013 soybeans is estimated to be $12.15, compared with $14.40 for the 2012 crop. According to Hurt, soybeans could offer some income stabilization for crop farmers. “We haven’t seen the same erosion in soybean prices that we have in corn because of the strong demand from China and tight world supplies until the South American crop comes into the markets later this winter,” he said. “Soybeans could be a stabilizing influence in farm incomes. “It’s never just about the size of the crop but what buyers you have and at what price they will pay for it.” The overall large corn and

‘Funds’ continued from Page A1 ever, Judge Redwine has asked specifically that the probation office keep him updated monthly on the defendant’s re-payment of the money. In a prepared statement from the board of Mount Vernon Youth Baseball, the board wrote as follows: ‘We at Mount Vernon Youth Baseball feel this plea agreement was the best outcome for our organization. This allows some compensation and, more importantly, allows us to put this incident behind us and look to the future, which had already started this past season.’ The statement went on to say that the experience made the organization take a good look at their policies and procedures and they have applied several safeguards to keep such a thing from happening in the future. “We sincerely hope that all of the work that we have done on this will prevent these kinds of things from happening in the future not only in our group but also other non-profit groups in our community and surrounding areas. According to information received from Posey County Prosecutor Travis Clowers, it was very important to the victims, (Mount Vernon Youth baseball Board) that the defendant have eight felonies on his record so that he may not do this to someone else in the future. It was also very important that they recover the money that he stole and put it back into the program. “If the defendant does not pay back the restitution, he will face four years in prison,” Clowers said. “Mount Vernon Youth Baseball officials handled this matter with class, and it is clear that the Board’s main concern is being a positive influence in the community and a positive influence for the kids who play youth baseball. I appreciate all of the cooperation and help, especially the help from the treasurer who replaced Bauman, Joe Rutledge.”

‘Charges’ continued from Page A1 amphetamine. According to Posey County Prosecutor Travis Clowers, there was a confidential informant working with the Evansville Police Department and they contacted Posey County authorities. According to Clowers, one

of the informants was actually inside one of the homes while the men were cooking the methamphetamine and he was videotaping the activity. Clowers said the cooking was going on while authorities were securing a search warrant and that officers

actually knocked down the door and caught the men in the finishing stages of cooking the methamphetamine. “This was especially effective because this came up very quickly and the sheriff’s department acted swiftly,” Clowers said. “They

soybean crops will be welcome news to end users, such as processors and livestock producers, and ultimately food and fuel consumers. With grain more readily available and at lower prices, food price inflation should fall below the general rate of inflation. For the last two years, food price inflation has been higher than general inflation. Indiana farmers are following the national trend with projected record corn production at more than 1 billion bushels for the first time. At 174 bushels per acre, the state’s farmers also are expected to break the record for yield. The record of 171 bushels per acre was set in 2009. This compares with a national per-acre cornyield average of 160.4 bushels, which Hurt said would be a fairly normal yield. The state’s soybean farmers are expected to produce an estimated 2.6 million bushels on yields of 50 bushels per acre. That would tie per-acre yields from 2006 and fall just short of the record 51.5 bushels per acre in 2004. These yields compare with 43 bushels per acre nationally, which Hurt said also is close to normal expectations.

got a pretty serious offender arrested and he confessed to his intentions to cook more than 10 grams of methamphetamine.” Clowers said the investigation created a very good case because a videotape actually exists of the men cooking the meth. Colton Cox was charged with Conspiracy to Commit Dealing in Methamphetamine, a Class A Felony; Dealing in Methamphetamine, a Class B Felony; and Possession of Chemical Reagents or Precursors with Intent to Manufacture a Controlled Substance, a Class C Felony. Both appeared in the Posey County Superior Court at 1:30 p.m. on Nov. 8, 2013, for their initial hearing. An arrest was made this week in an unrelated case, as well. In February, the Posey County Drug Task Force conducted an undercover investigation involving the illegal sales of prescription pills. During the investigation, personnel of the Posey County Drug Task Force and the Poseyville Police Department conducted undercover drug purchase operations resulting in the purchase of Schedule IV (Clonazepam) and Schedule II (Hydrocodone) controlled substances. On Nov. 1, 2013, the Posey County Drug Task Force obtained an arrest warrant for Myron K. Murphy, age 49, of Poseyville. After officers from several local agencies traveled to his residence, Murphy was found not to be at home. On November 5, Myron Murphy traveled to the Posey County Jail to inquire why police officers had been at his residence at which time he was taken into custody by Posey County Sheriff’s Department personnel. Myron Murphy is charged with Count 1: Dealing in schedule IV contolled substance, Class C Felony and Count 2: Dealing in a Schedule II controlled substance, a Class B felony.

Deer attractants: Legal to buy but not for use in hunting

Gamma Iota, the Posey County chapter of Delta Kappa Gamma, women educators’ sorority met on Tuesday, October 30, 2013 for a tour of the Berry Manufacturing Corporation’s national headquarters in Evansville, Indiana. Dan Davis, brother of our chapter’s treasurer Karen Davis, led the delegation on a two- hour walking tour of the Franklin Street plant in Evansville. Dan explained the details in the showroom areas of thousands of packaging products which Berry Plastics produces - displayed in the garage showroom to each home interior room. For protection to their packaging and sorority members as we moved through the tour, members donned their ‘Halloween’ smock, hard hat, safety glasses, and earphones. Following the tour, members stopped at the Gerst House for soup/sandwiches (and German chocolate cake) during our business meeting. Discussion included upcoming service projects as well as our annual Christmas auction to benefit Posey County scholars. Future educators will be able to apply for scholarship monies next spring. Anyone who has not visited should take the opportunity to call and setup a tour will find it enjoyable and informative. Photo submitted

The Department of Natural Resources is reminding Indiana hunters that even though deer attractants found at retail stores can be purchased and used in the wild, hunting near them is illegal. They are considered bait. Indiana regulations prohibit the hunting of deer with the use or aid of bait, which is defined as ‘a food that is transported and placed for consumption, including, but not limited to, piles of corn and apples placed in the field; a prepared solid or liquid that is manufactured and intended for consumption by livestock or wild deer, including, but not limited to, commercial baits and food supplements; salt; or mineral supplements.’ This includes artificial products marketed under names such as Deer Co-Cain, Buck Jam, Trophy Rock, as well as mineral blocks, salt blocks, and even natural foods such as corn and apples. “Basically, if you place anything that isn’t grown in the area and hunt there, it’s illegal,”

TO PLACE AN AD: CALL 1-812-682-3950 OR EMAIL:



said Lt. Larry Morrison, outdoor education director for DNR Law Enforcement. “Hunting next to a corn field or from an apple tree is legal, but placing corn or apples under your tree stand would put you in conflict with current Indiana law.” An area is considered baited for 10 days after the product and the affected soil is removed from an area. Odor differs from bait. Cover scents or scent attractants are legal to use when hunting. Archery season currently is underway in Indiana and continues through Jan. 5, 2014. The urban zone segment in designated areas continues through Jan. 31, 2014. The most popular segment of Indiana’s deer hunting season – firearms – begins Nov. 16 and ends Dec. 1, followed by the muzzleloader season (Dec. 7-22) and the special antlerless season (Dec. 26-Jan. 5, 2014). A violation of Indiana’s no baiting regulation is a Class C misdemeanor.

Saying just what you mean not always clear-cut answer I love the English language. Actually, I am one of those weird people who thinks it is fun to work with words and sentences and to see how many meanings you can come up with. It’s amazing what you can really hear if you listen to what people actually say instead of TRUTH... STRANGER what they meant to say. Our minds have condi- THAN tioned themselves to an ex- FICTION pected response and anything BY DAVE close to it is what we hear. PEARCE So when you combine my love of twisting the English language with an equally twisted sense of humor, those who spend much time around me know to expect the unexpected. It’s funny to see the looks on people’s faces when they realize that you heard what they said and that if taken the way they meant it to sound, it would be appropriate. However, if you take it the way I usually hear it, it will usually bring a chuckle. That brings me to this week. I have had a couple of instances that are readily recallable. The first one came while I was on the job at

a Ford dealership in Evansville. Someone in the office had taken a message for me. I was supposed to call and certain number and ask for John. However, someone had either taken the number down wrong or someone had given them a wrong number. But either way, the result was the same. So I get back to my desk, I see the note, and try to be half-way prompt at returning the call. I dial the number and after several rings, a lady picks up the phone. I could immediately tell that she was not happy to get the phone call. I am guessing that she looked at the caller ID and saw a car dealership and didn’t want to be bothered. I can understand that. I have been there. So I promptly asked, “Is John there.” She quickly answered in a hateful voice, “We don’t have a John here.” Oh, my…the things I could have done with that… Several responses came immediately

to my head. “Then what do you do when you have to go to the bathroom?” was the first. Several others followed. However, I kept my cool and wished them the best of luck getting their indoor plumbing installed. If you can imagine, the nice lady hung up on me. It happens more times than I can recall when someone mentions the time I was at the drive-thru window and someone on the other end of the speaker kept me waiting at the order mic for several minutes. The courteous young worker then said, “Sorry about your wait, how can I help you?” I had a ball with that one. “First, you keep me waiting and now you are saying that I have a ‘weight’ problem and you haven’t even seen me. So were you blessed with a gift to tell how much someone weighs just by listening to their voices?” Again, the flustered clerk stumbled through the order process and once up to the window, I explained she has had a cruel joke played on her. I’m sure she doesn’t say ‘Sorry about your wait’ without thinking about the man with the ‘weight’ problem. These things take me back to the days be-

fore cell phones and caller ID. How many can remember growing up when phone pranks were popular? There was the old standard when you called one of your acquaintances and asked, “Is your refrigerator running?” The person who answered would usually answer to the affirmative. Then we young rebels would answer, “You better go and catch it.” Another popular one was to call the local store that carried tobacco products and ask, “Do you have Prince Albert in a can?” (To the younger crowd, Prince Albert was a brand of rolling tobacco kept fresh in a tin can.) Since most stores carried tobacco products, the proprietor would usually answer. “Yes, we do.” Then again the rebel response was, “You’d better let him out!” There were countless numbers of those kinds of pranks. Most people of the older generation have fallen for at least one of them. But when you have a friend who delights in words that have the same sound but multiple meanings, you have to watch what you say. If there’s a way to make it ‘different,’ I will probably be the one to find it.

Posey County receives over $600,000 to go toward improvements Our community has been recognized twice in the last week for different grants that will boost our education system and economic development efforts. New Harmony was honored at the Statehouse as being one of 24 Hoosier communities to receive a part of more than $8 million in community development grants, and the Metropolitan School District of Mount Vernon and North Posey County received agrants to improve school security equipment. Funded with federal dollars from the Community Development Block Grant program, 21 communities received grants from the Community Focus Fund (CFF), and three communities received grants through the Main Street Revitalization Program (MSRP). Both the CFF and MSRP aim to assist smaller Hoosier cities and towns with long-term community development initiatives. While the MSRP focuses on refurbishing the downtown areas of each awarded community, the CFF covers a broader spectrum of community enhancement projects. New Harmony was awarded over $500,000 to help build storm water infrastructure improvements through a CFF grant. The project in New Harmony consists of 3,820 linear feet of storm sewers, inlets and headwall structures. The town is extremely flat making the surrounding hillsides steeply sloped causing runoff in rain events. This project will eliminate flooding on streets, yards and basements that the residents and town have experienced for many years. The grants are administered through the Office of Community and Rural Affairs which will assist community leaders during the 18-month implementation process. I will be recognizing the town of New Harmony for this achievement

at their next town hall meeting on November 21. The meeting is at 5 p.m., and I encourage the public to attend. The Secured School Safety Grant Program provides grants to school corporations and charter schools to improve safety measures, such as employing a school resource officer (SRO), conduct a threat assessment or purchase equipment to restrict access to the school or expedite the notification of first responders. Schools with an average daily membership of at least 1,000 students applied for grants up to $50,000 per year. Schools with less than 1,000 students daily could apply for up to $35,000 per year. I’m proud to say that the Metropolitan School District of Mount Vernon received the full $50,000 grant, and the Metropolitan School District of North Posey received a $20,000 grant. Mount Vernon school district plans to use the money it has received to improve school security equipment, while North Posey County school district plans to improve school security equipment and employ a school resource officer. In the past month, our district has received over $600,000 to go towards improving our schools and towns. I would like to congratulate those who applied for these grants as I am excited to see the positive impact the money will have on our community and schools. Rep. McNamara (R-Mount Vernon) represents portions of Posey and Vanderburgh counties. Rep. McNamara also serves as Vice Chair of Courts and Criminal Code Committee, the Government and Regulatory Reform Committee, Judiciary Committee and the Select Committee on Government Reduction.

Supporting your local United Way What do Republicans and Democrats Look Like? I’ve heard a lot of discussion about political profiles in recent days. The Republicans supposedly are the corporate greedy CEOs and the Democrats supposedly are all those standing in the government entitlement lines. Not true. My father was a republican. For thirty years of his life he drove an older model truck almost two hours one-way to Holden, W.V., where he worked in an underground coal mine. He worked eight to ten hours a day and then came home to farm two to three hours before crashing into bed. We worked a small garden, cared for ten to twenty cows, had some hogs, raised a large corn patch and you get the idea. My father was always exhausted during the workweek. My mother was a democrat. For several years she worked in the school system. She raised five children, washed clothes with a ringer washer in the early years and when there was not enough rainwater we carried water from the creek. She made breakfast and had supper on the table every evening and kept the house immaculately clean. She worked with my dad in the garden, milked cows, tended her flowers and like my dad was usually exhausted. On Sundays they got dressed up and went to church. They sang in the church choir and often sang in a quartet in other churches. Life was not always easy and as with many families there were those times when we wondered if we

would make it. Looking back I can say my father was a hard working Christian Republican. My mother was a hard working Christian Democrat. Together, they built a house, raised five kids, entertained family and friends and both lived to be 85. They were not wealthy in retirement but with a thirtyyear miner’s pension, Social Security and a balanced lifestyle they did fine. If only all Republicans and Democrats today could be as blessed. Imagine what our states and nation might accomplish if we worked together? These are tough times. We have to make some unpopular decisions in this country. People are hurting, stressed to the max and even in the streets hungry. We cannot go on with the ‘Us against them’ syndrome. If we do we are only going to lose more jobs, incur more national debt, lose more corporations to other countries, increase taxes and watch our communities drown in drugs, violence and poverty. Abraham Lincoln was quoting the Bible when he said, “A house divided against itself cannot stand.”

Supporting your local United Way can make a significant difference in the lives of children through the funding of a social worker for the MSD of Mount Vernon. Our community currently provides many services to students and families in need. However, through the addition of a social worker, schools are able to be much more proactive in developing solutions for our at-risk children and families. Social workers are able to assess and address the needs of students to provide intervention and prevention strategies. The addition of a social worker can impact the overall community through reduced alcohol and drug use, reduced delinquency, increased achievement, and an in-

crease in the number of community service referrals. Social workers support families in raising productive, successful children… our future neighbors and work force. United Way of Posey County supports our community in countless ways. By lending your support with any new contribution of $100 or more or by an increase of $100 or more to an earlier contribution, that gift will be matched and help obtain a social worker for the MSD of Mount Vernon. Your gift is an investment in Posey County’s future. Jody Pfister Curriculum, Grants and Testing MSD of Mount Vernon

crowd first saw a snake dance by Haskell’s female students wrapped in red blankets. Then they were joined by members of the football team in their uniforms adorned with feathers and wearing headdresses. Accompanied by sounds of several large calfskin-headed drums beating out a pulsating rhythm, the ‘wild Indians’ danced and yelled as the crowd lead by the students chanted, ‘Indians, Indians, Indians!’ With the charged atmosphere at its peak John Levi doffed his large headdress and stood on the fifty yard line facing the west goal post. Then McDonald used a megaphone to announce, “Ladies and Gentlemen, please welcome one of Haskell’s most illustrious returning sons, the great Jim Thorpe!” As Thorpe, wearing a Haskell jersey, jogged to midfield to stand back to back with Levi, the crowd worked itself into a frenzy of yelling and foot stomping. With fellow footballers handing each man

When the crowd quit yelling and applauding after Thorpe and Levi shook hands at the fifty yard line, McDonald introduced United States Senator Charles Curtis of Kansas who handed McDonald his personal check as the ceremonial first contribution to the stadium fund. McDonald would later wryly comment to Hanley they were now only almost one hundred percent from their goal. Meanwhile, back in Osage County, Oklahoma Titanic Thompson and Daddy Warbucks Cokes were carefully planning to ensnare Arnold Rothstein in their scheme of an off the books football game. But unbeknownst to them, Rothstein was surreptitiously weaving a nefarious web of his own, much as he had in the 1919 World Series.

Beth Russell

When beginning the process of writing this story, I searched for quite a while for â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;one wordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; that would best describe Beth Russell. I do not believe that â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;one wordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; exists. From the vast amount of knowledge she has amassed through her love for learning and reading, the extent she will go to provide help for those in need, to the love and care she showers her home and family with, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;one wordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; would never suffice. Beth was among the last graduating class from Owensville High School before they merged with Fort Branch and Haubstadt to become Gibson Southern. She then went on to receive her bachelors degree from USI in 1989, then received her masters degree from U of E in 2004. It doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t end there however as her love of learning leads her to continually take a class or two when she can. Being a part of the community has also been a huge part of Bethâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life. She was a substitute teacher while her children were young, has been a life-long member of St. Peters UCC and has been the organist there since the age of 13, she is on the board of directors for Jacobâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Village, is active in both Big Brothers Big Sisters and the Posey County Extension Homemakers, and is a County Service Extension Representative for the Salvation Army. As if that wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t enough, she is involved with the Fit for the Future Coalition, and has spent the last 10 years educating people on nutritious eating and exercising. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Anyone can walk,â&#x20AC;? states Beth. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And you would be amazed what a few simple changes in eating habits can do for a person. M and Mâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s are good, but so are salads. This is probably my second biggest passion. When we started in 2006, we had maybe six or seven phone calls on this issue a month. Now we average six-seven on a slow day.â&#x20AC;? And now to her â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;realâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; job... Family Matters started in 2006, when it was discovered that when families needed services and programs that were available, people just simply didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know those services existed or how to access them. Family Matters is basically a central clearinghouse for information,

resources, educational and volunteer opportunities. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If they need something, and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know where to start looking, they can start with my office and I can either help, or, if not, I can definitely find somebody that knows somebody that can help,â&#x20AC;? states Beth. Family Matters is available to all Posey County residents from all walks of life. Maybe the person is getting evicted, or someone who has a really good job, but because of a sick child at Rileyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, just needs a little help getting through that difficult time, sometimes itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s someone just needing a shoulder to cry on. No matter what the initial call is for, Beth takes the time to delve a little deeper and ask â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;what else do you need?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Often times, there is always an underlying need and the ultimate goal is to keep families together. If there is only one thing that Beth could share it would be, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Posey County is a county where its not just this organization, or that organization, we all work together in assisting families in need. If I need something, I send out an email and if they can help, they will. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the same with us, they call, we help, and if a person has trouble coming to us, I go to them.â&#x20AC;? Beth and husband of 36 years, Mike, have lived in the same home in Mount Vernon for the last 33 years. They have two children, son John, and daughter Laura (who has provided them with four beautiful granddaughters). Beth shares, â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are now looking for a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;new normalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; in our household due to Mikeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s injury in January which took part of his leg. However, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s doing good and we are just fine.â&#x20AC;? Mike, being just as community minded as Beth, served as City Councilman several years ago, and has recently joined the board of directors for Mount Vernonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 200th Anniversary Celebration. When Beth has some spare time, you can find her either knitting, sewing, crocheting, reading, or working in her extensive garden. If you happen to see her, say Thanks and let her know what a wonderful job we, as a community, believe she is doing.

Mount Vernon volleyball celebrates season at banquet By Steven Kochersperger Coming into this season the Mount Vernon High School volleyball team hoped to continue the success that previous teams has been having. This past week the team gathered along with family and friends to celebrate the success of this season. And while the season did not end with a sectional crown, the team still had a fantastic season that they should be proud of. The Lady Cats ended their season with an overall record of 18-13. The Wildcats gave all they could have given throughout the season and ended the year with a Big Eight Conference record of 5-1. That Conference record was good enough to gain a share of the conference championship. But a conference championship is not the only trophy the team hoped to gain this year and they showed it in the opener of the sectionals. The Wildcats played some of their best volleyball as they hosted the opening round of the sectionals. Taking on the always tough Memorial Tigers, the Wildcats never gave up and clawed their way to victory over the sectional favorite. This game is one that the Cats continue to look at with the knowledge that most of their players will return next season to match and go even farther than they did this season. At the banquet this week the

team gave out some special recognitions and awards. The awards were given by the players and coaches based on individual accomplishments throughout this season. The first award given out at the banquet was the ‘Hustle Award.’ This award went to Ellen Denning who showed a never-give-up attitude this season on the court and gave up her body through hustle to keep many volleys alive. The award was well deserved. The second award that was given out was the ‘Defensive Player’ award. This award went to senior Erica Winiger who has given her years to the program and has shown that defense is the starting point to a great offensive effort. The third award given out was the ’Offensive Player’ award. Senior Livia Hopper was given this award and it also was well deserved. Hopper all season long led the Wildcats in kills and was very active around the net to help her team gain as many points as possible. Without her play the Cats would have dropped many of the games in which their defense had helped keep close. The banquet also featured one conference award. Senior Livia Hopper was honored as a member of the Academic All State award. To gain this a student athlete must reach a certain level not only on the court but more im-

Hopper has excelled in both places and all should be proud of her accomplishments. Thank you Livia for showing us all what a true student athlete looks like. The team says goodbye to their

seniors and wishes them well in their future endeavors. But for all who remain as a part of the volleyball program, only good things are on their minds for the future. The team has been very happy with the play of the underclass-

men this season and everyone is looking forward to what might be able to happen when this team comes together once again next season. Thank you Wildcats for a great season and good luck in everything this off season.

New Harmony’s Deckard takes talent to next level By Steven Kochersperger If you have been to the Old Mill Mart in New Harmony lately you probably have noticed the sign out front recognizing one of their own. New Harmony resident Mandy Deckard competed this weekend in a power lifting competition in Louisville Kentucky called ‘Kentucky Muscle.’ As you would imagine, to compete in such a competition does not come easily and the training involved does not just happen overnight. When Deckard signed up for the gym a year ago she never could have imagined where it would take her. Deckard, like many of us, signed up at a local gym in Evansville in hopes of losing weight and feeling better. Deckard went to the gym often doing the normal things you need to do to lose weight like cardio exercises. From there she began slowly lifting weights and found pleasure in lifting heavier and heavier weights. “Each time I went to the gym I lifted heavier and heavier,” Deckard said. “I started doing a training package at the gym and eventually watched a video of a pro lifter do his thing. When I saw lift I said ‘that’s it’ and knew I had to do that. Ever since then my lifting went in that direction.” What Deckard has been doing and is now competing in is a sport called Power Lifting. In short, Power Lifting is a sport that consists of athletes attempting to lift as much weight as possible in three different lifts. Those lifts are squat, bench press, and dead lift. The competition that Deckard competed in over the weekend in Louisville consisted of two lifts, bench press and dead lift. Com-

now and lights up when talking to anyone about the sport. One of the things that Deckard wants to clear up with folks is the mix up many have with power lifting and body building. A lot of folks confuse the two and Deckard is quick to tell you there is a huge difference. Power Lifting involved the lifting of weights as the center of the sport while body building is all about flexing the muscle in hopes of gaining a score based on how one’s body looks. “I just want to see what I can do,” Deckard said before the meet this weekend. “I want people to know that it takes a lot of hard work and dedication to do something like this. You can’t just get up one day and do it.” Deckard makes it clear that she would like to see others in our area take up the sport. She encourages anyone that is interested in Power Lifting to get educated Mandy Deckard of New Harmony trains for her recent power lift- and get out and start training. ing competition.

Members of the North Posey High School Football Team learned how hard work and dedication can help you improve individually and as a team during this year’s season.
