By Valerie Werkmeister North Posey School Board members approved a plan to change the number of voting districts from three to two. The change was necessitated by the annexation of the New Harmony School district, which closed last year. The board will still consist of five members, two from each district plus one atlarge member. Residence District 1 will consist of Smith, Robb, Bethel, Harmony and part of Center Township. Robinson Township and the remainder of Center Township will comprise Residence District 2. Currently, all five board members’ seats that include Joe Neidig, Jim Scarafia, Linda O’Risky, Geoff Gentil and Steve Bender are up for re-election in 2014. Voters must choose three candidates from one residence district and two candidates from the other district. For this election only, the following rules apply: the candidate with the top number of votes in Residence District 1 will have the opportunity to choose a two-year or a four-term. The candidate from Residence District 1 with the second most votes; and the candidate from Residence District 2 with the second most votes will be seated to the other term in their residence district. The remaining candidate with the most votes from either district will be seated to a two-year term as the at-large member. In this way, the board will be comprised of members with staggered terms so that the entire board is not always up for re-election at the end of every four years. The board accepted two grants totaling $23,750. North Elementary School Special Education teacher Liz Mumford procured $3,750 from the Posey County Community Foundation to be used for technology within the department. The remaining $20,000 in funds will be used to pay School Resource Officer, Frank Smith’s, salary. The grant funds were a part of the 2014 Secured Schools Safety Grant and are contingent upon a matching source. Board members approved a new health insurance plan for district employees. Camp explained they will be moving to a partially self-funded plan and chose Meritain to serve as the administrator. Employees have the choice between three plans with varying deductibles and out-of-pocket maximums. They also approved the renewal contract with Health Resources, Inc. (HRI) for dental health options. HRI offered a rate decrease if the board agreed to lock in a longer term for their rates. They accepted the agreement and the new rates will

Cynthiana puts teeth into clean-up plan By Valerie Werkmeister Members of the Cynthiana Town Board are desperate to make headway with an abandoned property in their town. For months, they have tried working with Jackie and Jonathan Sinay, owners of the property located at 10965 Highway 65 North, to come to a resolution. The house on the property burned and the charred remains and debris still litters the property. Tall weeds and grass were unsightly in the summer and town board members have declared it unclean, unsanitary and a

health hazard. The Sinays have allegedly moved out of the area and do not respond to certified letters or phone call attempts to address the matter. During their November 12, meeting, board president Scott Cox read the nuisance ordinance violation ordering the Sinays to bring the property into compliance within 10 days. If they do not comply, the Sinays will be ordered to reimburse the town for any clean-up costs that are incurred. They will also be ordered to pay any attorney’s fees involved in trying to collect

and enforce the ordinance. Attorney Jeff Ahlers advised the board to send a letter to the Posey County Health Board requesting they condemn the property. Clerk-Treasurer Greta Mounts stated she had spoken to someone at the health department and was informed they would not condemn the property. No reason was given as to why the county department would not pursue the matter. Board members have taken a proactive approach in trying to clean up the town, but are somewhat limited in their resources. They are often frus-

trated when foreclosed homes sit vacant, become unkempt and neither the bank that owns the mortgage nor the previous homeowners claim responsibility for the property. The problem isn’t isolated to just Cynthiana. Similar problems are scattered throughout the county as well as the rest of the country. Unfortunately, there are no easy solutions. The board discussed a complaint about property conditions at 11702 Main Street owned by Ed Allen. The

Mount Vernon’s ATI plans expansion

By Dave Pearce The Mount Vernon City Council heard a plan this week by ATI to add a few jobs and put Mount Vernon even more on the corporate map. Ken Juncker, Chairman Of The Board & Treasurer of ATI-Mount Vernon spoke to the Council in regards to the requested tax ‘phase-in’ and stated the project will last from October 2013 to December 2015 and it will allow ATI to remain in Mount Vernon and expand Mount Vernon employment and the tax base. According to ATI’s website, ATI Inc., is a privately owned and operated company whose owners have been involved in tracks for over 30 years. They began serious development of rubber track systems in the early 1990’s before establishing ATI

in 1997. After four years of design and development the first units were sold in 2001 for seismic exploration on Alaska’s North Slope. Juncker told the council that this is a long-term project and that trucks will be using Brown Street to get to the facility. ATI’s facility in Mount Vernon develops and distributes rubber track systems. When questioned about the project, Juncker replied the building part of the project accounts for $900,000 and with the equipment, it puts the total project around $2 million. Juncker also said there will be six technical/ professional positions added and six other position. Juncker stated they encourage their employees to live and work in Mount

Vernon. He added 70 percent of their current employees live in Mount Vernon. In the absence of the City’s attorney Beth McFadin-Higgins, Mount Vernon Mayor John Tucker told the council he wanted ATI to make their presentation so that Council would be able to fill out their worksheets and determine the phase-in on the building and the equipment. Before such an arrangement can be approved, there will need to be a public hearing, a proclamation, and a confirming resolution. The Council needs to decide by December 12 if this qualifies as an ERA area. Councilman Andy Hoehn stated based on the 2010 assessed value of Posey County, this project will be good for Posey County. He shared his

belief that this will be a valuable asset and it is good that they are hiring Posey County residents, and using local contractors. In other business: • The Council approved the final reading of the new controlled substance-alcohol policy for the city. • The Council refused to approve the amended salary for Parks and Recreation Director Michael Harshbarger, as was recommended by the Mount Vernon Parks Board. Councilman Andy Hoehn said he has a problem with the Parks Board setting the salary. The board voted unanimously against the proposed salary change and asked that members of the Parks Board and/or Parks Dept. Director Mi-

Poseyville still seeks bids for old Town Hall By Valerie Werkmeister Poseyville Town Council members met for a monthly meeting on Wednesday, November 13, with a short agenda of items to discuss. Council members had hoped to open bids on the former town hall building that is for sale. However, no bids were received. A minimum bid price of $12,000 was set on the structure that does not include the adjacent parking lot. The property around the building is actually owned by JL Hirsch’s Department and Grocery Store. The council decided to not take any further action on trying to sell it at this time. They may revisit the idea after the holiday season has passed. The fire department requested approval of a new member to add to

the depleted ranks. Council members eagerly approved Duane Szubinski’s application and hope to see more in the near future. Membership on the fire department has dwindled and it is now affecting their ability to respond to emergency calls. Current members work full-time jobs during the day and are not readily available. Ron Fallowfield stated a few weeks ago, the department was unable to respond to a daytime emergency call. Thankfully, mutual aid with other area departments enabled help to arrive for that particular emergency. Fallowfield noted that was the first time Poseyville did not respond to an emergency call. Anyone who is interested in serving on the volunteer fire department can call the fire station and leave a

message. Leaf pick up has begun and residents are asked to only rake leaves to the curb and not into the streets. Also, limbs and sticks should not be included in the leaf piles. Picking up objects other than leaves can damage the leaf vacuum. Julie Mayo advised council members that Pat Callahan, CPA is currently working on rate studies for the town utilities. He will deliver a presentation on his findings during the council’s meeting in December. Poseyville Carnegie Public Librarian, Heather McNabb, informed the council that the library is still waiting on adjacent property to become available so the library may purchase it. The house behind the library is in foreclosure and the library would like

to expand. Unfortunately, US Bank, the current mortgage holder, is uncooperative in the library’s attempts to move the process forward. McNabb stated the attorney for the bank has not been forthcoming with information about the process. She also stated the library has contracted with an Evansville marketing agency to create a new logo. The library will be excited to share this with their patrons in the near future. They will spend $10,000 on new technology for patron use. “There are lots of exciting things going on at the library right now,” McNabb stated. The next council meeting will be Wednesday, December 11, at 4:30 p.m. in the new town hall on Main Street.

Opinions have no place on news page, especially others The Hippocratic Oath is historically taken by physicians and other healthcare professionals swearing to practice medicine with integrity. While journalists are not expected to take such an oath, TRUTH... there is generally an under- STRANGER standing among journalists THAN that we took this course of FICTION study to be the watchdog for the community. God knows BY DAVE we didn’t take it for the money PEARCE or the hours or the fame. For that reason, I was surprised last week when I received a phone call that I should take a look at a front-page lead story in the Mount Vernon Democrat. The early-morning caller indicated the writer had used quotes from an editorial I had written the week before. Editorials are placed on the Opinion Page and are, as protected by law, simply the opinion of the writer and do not necessarily reflect the stance of the newspaper or even the writer of the original story. I rarely look at the Democrat. I have all I can do if I get the stories and pictures done and ready to proofread over the weekend for the Posey County News. But out of curiosity, I bit. I was more than surprised to see my ‘opinion’ being used as fodder for the lead news story of another newspaper. But the more I thought about it, I began to have a feeling of pride regarding the use of my ‘opinion’ as ‘news.’ It was good to know that our stories and my opinions and columns are being read, even by the competition. And besides, my college Professor Ron Roat would be proud that I was attempting to uphold what I believe was ‘the right thing.’ But more than that, it was good to see that someone took heed of my stance regarding a meeting that may or may not have occurred prior to the ousting and replacement of the entire Posey County Economic Development board without a bit a public discussion. Now folks, I have checked my birth certificate and it states clearly that I was born at night…but it wasn’t last night. The Democrat’s article, under the byline of Angela Geralds, contains the following, ‘We planned no meetings. We had no meetings,’ Schmitz said of he and Walden. He added that he had spoken to Republican Party Chair Greg Newman about the issue. ‘Commission attorney Bill Bender supports the actions of (Commissioner Carl) Schmitz

and (Commissioner Jerry) Walden and said the county is responding to the complaint and the Indiana Public Access Council will render a decision. He said he has no knowledge of any meetings between Schmitz and Walden about the issue, nor any e-mails sent between the two about the issue. He said it’s his opinion that Schmitz and Walden acted within the authority given them by the state and that they violated no laws.’ In her ‘news’ article, Geralds goes on to cite a confirmation she received from my 30-year friend, Hoosier State Press Attorney Steve Key. Despite the recitation quoted by Key, It is still my opinion that the men would have to have met, in one way or another, before doing what they did in the meeting. Otherwise such sudden drastic action could not have been taken. Geralds’ story reads, ‘However, according to Hoosier State Press Association Attorney Steve Key, anytime two or more commissioners are in the same room doesn’t necessarily constitute a meeting.’ The legislature anticipated situations in a community where two or all three commissioners could attend the same event (Rotary Luncheon, Friday night high school ballgame) and talk to each other. So the Open Door Law definition of meeting [See IC 5-141.5-2(c)(1)] excludes any social or chance gathering not intended to avoid this law,” Key explained.” However, does common sense not come into place at some point here? First of all, the men would have to have sent telepathic messages to come up with the attorney’s draft which contained the names of three replacements, drafted prior to the meeting. And why did the men feel the necessity to contact, of all people, the Posey GOP chairman? What did my friend Greg Newman have to do with the decision to replace the board? While I agree that situations occur where two of the three men could have been in the same place at the same time and that it does not ‘necessarily’ constitute a ‘meeting,’ the key word here is ‘necessarily.’ When three men enter a meeting room and have not, prior to the meeting, discussed an issue, please explain to me how the names of the same three men already appeared on

a legal draft prepared by one of the men, the county attorney. According to the Indiana Open Door Law, ‘Under the Indiana Open Door Law, a ‘meeting’ is a gathering of a majority of the members of a governing body of a public agency for the purpose of taking official action upon agency business. The word ‘official’ action means to receive information, deliberate, make recommendations, establish policy, make decisions, or take final action.’ Do you believe the three replacement names came up with total spontaneity, ‘without receiving information, deliberating, or making recommendations?’ This is not a matter of distrust nor is it a matter of like or dislike for any of the men who were ousted or the people who replaced them. I would like to think of all of them as my friends. I have known every one of them for many, many years and have respect for them. And my opinion piece was in no way politically motivated nor did I expect it to be cited in a complaint or in a competing newspaper. It was simply my opinion. This is about keeping local government public. Decisions that should be made in a public meeting need to be made there, not prior to the meeting. If there was nothing done in

secret, what would be the big deal to have an open discussion in a public meeting regarding the issue? Let it go on record as to what was decided and why. If the decision to do it the way it was done was one made out of ignorance of exactly what the law states, then why not just say so? Then do it the right way. But again, this is on the ‘Opinion Page’ and is simply my opinion. A ruling is slated to be handed down on the official complaint in late November and I don’t know what decision will be made. Frankly, I’m really not as concerned about the outcome as I am that I have let the people of Posey County know that someone out here still takes his responsibilities seriously and is not afraid to stand up and call a spade a spade. And it makes no difference which side of the political fence is involved. I believe it is my job, as a journalist, to keep public meetings ‘public.’ Someone has to be a watchdog for the community because less than one percent of the county’s residents have ever attended a meeting of the county commissioners. Most never will. Whether the powers that be agree with my ‘opinion’ or not, I can go to bed at night believing I did the right thing. That is a priceless feeling to me.

Guest Column State Rep. Wendy McNamara Letters to the Editor

Organization Day, upcoming session The 2014 session is right around the corner, and Organization Day will kick off the legislative proceedings this Tuesday. I’m looking forward to convening and putting the final touches on all of the work we have accomplished this summer during interim study committees to prepare for this upcoming session. This year will be a ‘short session’ because we passed the state’s biennial budget last year. We have a total of 30 session days to meet and address the people’s business. There are many benefits to having a part-time legislature; including saving on operational costs, time restrictions to handle pertinent matters, meaning things get done, and greater accountability. Each year the House of Representatives chooses a charity to help and promote. Legislators and staff will bring in items during the weeks prior and through Organization Day benefiting the Special Olympics of Indiana (SOI) this year. They are a not-for-profit organization that provides year-round sports training and athletic competition in more than 20 Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities, reaching more than 11,000 athletes across Indiana. SOI is part of the interna-

tional network of accredited Special Olympics Programs that reaches nearly four million athletes with intellectual disabilities worldwide. I will have a busy year as I continue to serve as the Vice Chair of Courts and Criminal Code Committee and as a member of the Government and Regulatory Reform Committee, Judiciary Committee and the Select Committee on Government Reduction. I look forward to serving our community and will continue to carry your voice to Indianapolis in an effort to build a pro-business environment that attracts high quality jobs in Indiana. Over the next few months, the Statehouse will become a whirlwind of committee hearings, meetings with constituents and authoring legislation. I look forward to keeping you updated on this short, but busy session. If you have suggestions, questions, or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me by phone at 317-232-9841 or via email at 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.

United Way thanks community volunteers I am writing today to say thank you to all the people in our community who are volunteers for the United Way campaign this year. These individuals are giving their time and efforts to help our United Way in Posey County reach its goal of $670,000 so that the agencies and programs can continue to be available for all the people of Posey County. These people help those most at-risk children and young people, the disabled, senior citizens, those in need or in the midst of a disaster; and they help to provide services that can aid with intervention earlier to solve issues before they become crises. These local volunteers are going throughout all of Posey County now to try to get the United Way campaign fin-

Chapter 13 - As ye sow... Alvin (Titanic Thompson) Thomas and Hubert (Daddy Warbucks) Cokes were getting excited. For two small town boys from Arkansas they were living large. Their team play dur- GAVEL ing the Saturday night GAMUT poker game at the Duncan Hotel on the BY JUDGE Osage Nation was al- JIM REDWINE most too easy to be fun. The cattle and oilmen drank too much, did not study the odds and had money. The oilmen were especially ripe for the plucking as their money came almost miraculously and in large, surprising spurts. Chasing an inside straight or betting on the come was about the same as wildcatting for oil. As that lovely autumn of 1924 turned the tall prairie grasses to russet and the blackjack oaks to wind chimes of rustling brown leaves, Titanic and Hubert sat on a sandstone ledge by a golf course on the high hill that formed the southwestern edge of Pawhuska. Far across the valley they surveyed the bustling county seat with its pretentious granite courthouse next to the native sandstone buildings of the Osage Indian Agency. “Hubert, you ever play golf?” “No, there wasn’t much call for it in Rogers, Arkansas.” “The reason I wanted us to drive up here this morning is I have a plan to draw

Rothstein here before the football game. We have already made sure he’s aware of the game, so we know he won’t be able to pass up a chance to bet on it. But, I want to get him here soon and start working on his outsized ego and his undersized ability. He fancies himself a golfer; however, he plays golf just like he does everything else. If he can’t fix it, he can’t win. I believe we can salt the mine a little and make him think he has an edge to beat me. We have played in California and New York where I have always allowed him to stay close but never win. I usually control my score with putting. “Look around you, Hubert. This little nine hole course we are looking at has something Arnold Rothstein has probably never heard of, sand greens. Since there’s little water in Oklahoma they can’t keep grass greens. Let’s walk over to that green perched on the side of this hill and I’ll show you how it works. “A golfer just has to get his ball on the sand then mark it, pick it up and use these little metal rollers to make a putting lane to the hole. Then you empty the sand out of the hole and putt along the lane you just rolled. It’s almost impossible to need more than two putts and it is impossible for a ball to not stick on the

What do you think?” “Ti, I think golf is about as dumb a game as was ever concocted by the Devil. However, we both know Rothstein. The dollar signs will dance all over his eyes and he’ll probably arrive in Pawhuska next week if he has to ride the caboose of the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe. Maybe it will be the start of our revenge for Shoeless Joe and the 1919 World Series. “But, say, Ti, what about your bet this morning that you could throw that lemon you took out of the fruit bowl display in the lobby of the Duncan Hotel up on the roof of the hotel? That befuddled oilman couldn’t believe you actually lobbed that thing seven stories high. How’d you do it?” “Hubert, yesterday evening I paid that colored porter five dollars to switch one of the four lemons in the display with one I had imbedded with a few buckshot. This morning I just picked that one as if at random. It was an easy $500. The hard part was picking out a mark at breakfast and suckering him in. I hope Rothstein falls as easy.

ished. When one of them calls on you, please help our United Way in Posey County continue to make these important services and programs available for all the people of Posey County. It takes the involvement of our entire community to have a successful United Way campaign, and we need your help to make this happen. This year, there is another important reason to participate because there is a grant available in this campaign. Matching funds of $63,927 are required to be raised in the United Way campaign of this fall. New or non-participating businesses and individuals will have their contributions of $100 or more matched in full. Businesses and individuals already participating will have any increase of $100 to $499 matched at 50 percent and any contribution of $500 or more matched in full. Firsttime Leadership Givers ($300 or more) will have the entire contribution matched. New contributions or increases in company matching programs of at least 50 percent will be matched in full, for gifts of $100 or more. Matching funds raised in the Posey County United Way campaign will be used to claim the grant funds. Grant funds will be received early next year and used to help the Children’s Learning Center of Posey County attain Paths to Quality Levels Three and Four, for the MSD of Mount Vernon to have the services of a social worker to help experience a decrease in alcohol and drug use among students and a reduction in suspension and expulsion, for the Medical Needs Committee working with ECHO Community Health Care to provide affordable dental care for the Posey County Community, and for the MSD of North Posey to continue the services of a school resource officer to maintain a safer school environment.

She loved camping, horse shows, and more than anything spending time with her family and friends. She was always so fun loving, jovial, liked a good joke, and was the life of the party. She was a wonderful old-fashioned cook and anyone was always welcome at her table. Mary was preceded in death by her husband, Phillip; parents; brothers, James and Alex McKean; son, Steve Cones; son-in-law, Clarence Smith and granddaughter, Kathy Connaway. She is survived by her daughters, Phyllis McCarty and Geraldine Smith; son, James (Trudy) Keach; daughter-in-law, Nancy Cones; sister Margaret Taggart; grandchildren, Amanda, Scott, and Jeff Cones, Krista (Joe) Cartwright, Jennifer (Wayne) King, Nathalie (Scott) Osborne, Kevin (Shelly) Woods, Kelly (Robin) Woods, Lonnie Connaway, Larry (Peggy) Connaway; many great grandchildren, great-greatgrandchildren, nieces, nephews, and cousins and friends.

‘Cynthiana’ continued from Page A1 home is vacant and the water was shut off in August. Board members agreed to send a letter to Mr. Allen advising him of the nuisance ordinance violation. Cynthiana was the recipient of two grants. They received $1,500 from the Posey County Community Foundation to purchase new tables for the community center. They also received $5,000 to expand the toddler area in the park. Board members noted the park is a great asset to the community and wanted to create an area just for toddlers. They hope to begin work in the spring. Matthew Mathias, a representative of Shrewsberry and Associates of Indianapolis, delivered a short presentation of his company’s services to the board. The company provides engineering, consulting and design services. Mathias stated his company had worked with the town about 15 years ago on a waste water project.

Nov. 17-23 declared Winter Weather Preparedness Week The unofficial start of Winter came raining down this week for many across Indiana. But are you ready? The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) wants you to be prepared. And there’s no better time to take action than during the upcoming Winter Weather Preparedness Week, November 17-23. INDOT’s top priority is snow and ice removal and we use all available resources to keep roads open, maximize the mobility of the traveling public, and minimize accidents due to winter traveling conditions. But the biggest impact to safe winter travel begins and ends with driver behavior. That’s why INDOT will help folks to Be Prepared during Winter Weather Preparedness Week by debuting new winter weather videos on the INDOT YouTube channel, posting informational ‘Did You Know’ Winter Facts on INDOT Facebook and Twitter pages, holding media events, and more. How can drivers prepare when winter weather hits? • Know the condition of the roads (Check INDOT Facebook and Twitter pages or Trafficwise). • Plan extra travel time to get to your destination. • Clear off your vehicle completely before hitting the road (not just the windshield). • Accelerate gradually and brake early to avoid slipping and sliding. • Be alert and give other drivers plenty of room. • Give INDOT plow crews room to work. It’s a difficult

job and they’re on the road 24 hours a day to keep you safe. Stay back, slow down, and watch for plows making sudden stops or turns. INDOT Is Prepared for Winter • Snow/ice removal crews on the job 24 hours a day • Hundreds of snow routes on 30,000 lanes miles of road statewide • Clearing roads by any means necessary, from plowing and salting, to spraying brine and de-icers • High tech and scientific weather prediction, utilizing a partnership with Purdue University, specialized statewide forecasts designed for INDOT, and local forecasts • Extensive plow driver training, both on the roads and in the classroom learning the science of snow removal • Equipment to get the job done, including enough salt to get us through the worst winter Did you know? - Drivers can monitor road conditions across the state anytime, day or night, by logging on to The website is updated during snow events to inform drivers whether road conditions are good, fair, or difficult.

‘ATI’ continued from Page A1 chael Harshbarger appear at the next meeting to discuss the situation. • Mount Vernon Fire Department Chairman Councilman Jeffries told the council that Asst. Fire Chief Ryan Harms is working on a $75,000 grant for a new Surrey Fire Trailer. If they are successful, the match for the city will be around $3,700. Harms stated the cost for a new trailer is between $70,000-$75,000 and they have looked at some in Indianapolis. The grant is a FEMA grant with a five percent city match. It will be awarded in late spring or early summer, with deadline for application being December 6, 2013. He said approximately 50,000 children have gone through the trailer, as they loan it out as well to other agencies, and it helps the community. • In regards to concerns that have been expressed in past meetings concerning crime and it’s prevention in the Ninth Street area of Mount Vernon, Councilman Bill Curtis stated that he, Councilmen Jeffries and Hoehn, and Mount Vernon Police Chief Grant Beloat had a meeting and to set up some plans on information they want gathered. Curtis said he believes the number of calls are lower in that area than in the past, but there are no plans to reduce patrols. Hoehn stated they are getting assessments on parts of the town as they do not want to be in this position again in any section of town. He added they will be putting together a grid that will overlay the city where they can plug in the area where the calls are coming from and hopefully catch situations like this a lot earlier and identify the areas involved. • Martha Caine appeared

before the Council to promote her organization’s purpose to promote a smoke free, healthy living environment. Councilman Brian Jeffries invited Caine to the meeting. Told the council that November 21 is the Great American Smoke Out where they encourage folks to quit smoking or at the very least, quit for that day. She informed the Council stating the new ‘e-cigs’ and vapor shops that are popping up everywhere are very troubling. She said E-cig vapor is very similar to second hand smoke and these devices are not approved by the FDA. She added they are also seeing dual use – folks using e-cigs as well as smoking cigarettes. Jeffries, an attorney himself, indicated that he is concerned that when smoke shops crop up, there is always a cross-over with what is actually sold. He stated it is a legitimate concern for the community.

Mount Vernon to get jump on crows, new patching tank

By Dave Pearce The Mount Vernon Board of Public Works and Safety met at 4 p.m. on Wednesday in the meeting room at City Hall Annex in Mount Vernon. The board approved a request from Mount Vernon City Commissioner Max to purchase an 800-gallon portable oil tank, which they will mount on one of their old dump trucks, for the Total Patcher to use in street patching. He added he has found one for $12,500 and it is in stock. Works Board member Bill Curtis stated the department has to have it and member Steve Fuelling agreed and added that the tank will pay for itself. The board granted permission for the purchase. •Under audience concerns, Water Supt. Chuck Gray stated he was present on behalf of Christmas on Main Street, scheduled for December 7, seeking permission to close Tenth Street from 3 until 7 p.m. for pa-

rade line up and Main Street at 5 p.m. for the parade. Gray added he will also need two parking spots on Water Street left empty, on the south side of East Water Street, for the floats to be able to make the turn. Gray then stated his department has been battling the “Crow Issue” and they seem to be congregating earlier this year. He was given permission to purchase a laser to help run them off for $269. Board member Bill Curtis stated the Mount Vernon Fire Department has had a mutual aid agreement in the past with Black Township Fire & Rescue. He indicated he would like the Board to give Chief Wes Dixon authority to work on this agreement and sign off when an agreement has been reached. He added they need this to move forward with the new police and fire station, a “memo of understanding.” The Works Board approved the request.

Cost provides no excuse for not making holiday trip this Thanksgiving According to research done by Purdue University, people will have to find an excuse other than cost not to make the holiday trips this year. Both the cost of food and the cost of gasoline are down this year compared to last. Holiday shoppers can expect less-expensive turkeys and moderate price increases on other Thanksgiving staples this holiday season, a Purdue Extension agricultural economist says. In the U.S., average annual food price inflation is about 2.5 percent, but this year grocery food prices are running just 1 percent higher than 2012 prices. “There’s a lot of good news out there for the consumer. Food price inflation is very low this year,” Corinne Alexander said. For the items most commonly associated with Thanksgiving meals, Alexander said some prices will be up a bit and others will be down slightly. “We’re expecting the overall Thanksgiving meal to be roughly the same price as last year, and potentially, depending on what sort of in-store specials are being offered, you might even spend less this year than you did last year on Thanksgiving,” Alexander said. Turkey, the main item on many Thanksgiving dinner menus, should cost consumers less this year. The U.S. Department of Agriculture is predicting that wholesale prices for Eastern market whole turkeys will be between $1 and $1.06 per pound in the fourth quarter, compared with $1.06 per pound in 2012. Alexander said it’s important for consumers to remember that the way wholesale prices translate to retail prices depends on individual retailers. The actual price paid also will vary depending on whether a shopper chooses a whole tur-

key or turkey parts; frozen or fresh birds; fresh, precooked or complete turkey meals; brand names; and the value of store coupons and price specials. Often grocers will offer turkeys at a deep discount to encourage shoppers to purchase their other Thanksgiving items at a particular store, Alexander said. “Because turkey is a favorite loss leader, that’s one of those items where savvy shoppers can look to coupons and store specials to really find the best price possible for their Thanksgiving turkey, and then the rest of the items for their Thanksgiving meal,” she said. Prices for other Thanksgiving staples will be a bit of a mixed bag. For example, cranberry prices are expected to be on par with last year. An abundant crop should keep prices from increasing, while strong demand will keep them from decreasing. Sweet potatoes, another in-demand item, are expected to cost consumers about 10 percent more than they did in 2012. White potato prices also are up by about 15 percent this year compared with the record low prices last year. On average, Americans spend about 10 percent of their incomes for food. Alexander said that the below average price increases this year could mean there’s room in the family budget to add treats to the holiday meal. But families affected by unemployment or minimal wage increases could spend up to 25 percent of their incomes on food. “For these families, any food price rise is significant,” Alexander said. “We should remember those who are less fortunate and share our food bounty.” When it comes to preparing this year’s Thanksgiving feasts, consumers will pay more for energy than they did in

Dr. Tom Kopatich, Superintendent of Schools of the MSD of Mount Vernon and John Gerton, co-owner of Gerton Auto Sales were introduced as new directors. Michael Ashworth, Donett May, Barbara Tennyson and George Morgan continue as reelected directors. Appreciation was expressed for Mike Smith who retired from the board. Mikes efforts on behalf of Mount Vernon will have a long term positive impact on the quality of life in Mount Vernon. President Melvin Levin reviewed activities of the Greater Mount Vernon As-

sociation during the past year. The focus of the organization continues to be upon attracting people who work in Mount Vernon to live in Mount Vernon. Working with the city government to improve the appearance of Main Street was a major emphasis. The program to add new welcoming signs and the placement of yard signs along the travel routes used by workers was continued to bring attention to the benefits of making Mount Vernon their home town. Looking to the future, the directors discussed the need for a marketing program to expand and focus information about living in Mount Vernon. Mount Vernon is a great place to live and raise a family and that needs to be communicated. To disseminate information

Sermon of the Week: Saints with sinners problems By Pastor James Mullins, Turning Point Apostolic Church Romans 7:14-25 This is a very exciting scripture This particular scripture helps us understand that man has two natures. Although we are Christians, there is yet an internal war going on. Although we have given our life to Christ, we still battle with sin. Someone in conflict with himself - someone who loves God’s moral law and wants to obey it, but is pulled away from doing so by the sin that is in him. It is the personal experience of a soul in conflict. Paul made mention in I Corinthians 15:31 “I die daily.” • Paul not referring to a physical death, not possible • Hebrews 9:27 “And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgement” • The flesh must die every day • Spirit man vs. Carnal man – internal struggle • Spirit and Carnal collide everyday no matter how saved we think we are. We should take some time in an effort to define some of our words or terminology that will be mentioned, prior to marching forward in this message. Let us define that word Saint. Many are confused by this word, unsure as to who is a Saint and who is not. Sometimes we think we must be very careful as to not throw the word Saint around, that is to say we should us it sparingly. Much confusion in the Church as to who is classified as Saints. • Positionally, every New Testament believer is a Saint • Every member of the body of Christ is a Saint • Therefore all the Saved of the New Testament era are Saints by virtue of our position in Christ • In layman’s terms if you and I believe in Christ, live as such, we are Saints • Paul wrote: • -- Col. 1:2 “To the Saints and faithful brethren in Christ” • -- Eph. 1:1 “…to the Saints which are at Ephesus…” • -- Phil. 1:1 “…to all the Saints in Christ Jesus which are at Phillippi” Let’s quickly define a Sinner. This should not take us very long, it is an area we are very familiar. Sinners are those that violate the divine will of God. Ethically, Sin is that which is Immoral. Because he was a physical being just like us, Paul knew that sin “dwells in me. For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh) nothing good dwells; for to will is present with me, but how to perform what is good I do not find.” We have limited natural ability to properly live up to right standards and values. We repeatedly fall short of the honorable conduct God expects of us. Paul explained why. We sin, or miss the mark, because of something that dwells in us, in our flesh. • Jesus identifies the most significant characteristic of the “flesh,” or our nature, that causes sin • Bible Warns – “Watch and pray lest you enter into temptation” • Matthew 26:41 “The spirit indeed is willing,but the flesh is weak” • It is the weakness of the flesh that gives birth to sin. Based on our definitions we could think that our topic– Saints with Sinners Problems is nothing more than an Oxymoron = A Figure of Speech in which Opposite or Contradictory Ideas or Terms are Combined. It is difficult to use the words Saints and Sinner in the same sentence. These terms seem to collide – should bump heads with one another – they should be at opposite ends of the spectrum. Our thoughts suggest to us even now, that you are either a Saint or you are a Sinner but you can’t be both. Allow me to help you focus on this thought this morning. Many of us or perhaps most of us have some spiritual problems this morning • We are Baptized Believers • No doubt that we Love the Lord! • Our desire is to operate by the Will of God • Our daily prayer Not My Will But They Will Be Done • No longer about us, all about Jesus • Understand we have Come This Far By Faith We are therefore by Definition = Saints – Don’t look strange at the person next to you – you have to focus on yourself.

I want to address this issue of Saints with Sinners Problems. We are saved but: • Why did we Cuss at the neighbors child? • Turn up the Liquor bottle when we felt stressed • Keep running back to the Drug Dealer with my paycheck • Carry that Lie about that Bro. or Sis. Sitting next to me • Cuss all day long on the job • Cheat on my timecard last week • Cheat on my Taxes • Have those thoughts about the new Secretary and I am happily married • Talking about Saints with Sinners Problems Because we have been saved and washed in the Blood of the Lamb, does not mean that sin will no longer knock on our door. You need to understand that there is nothing wrong with you because of the struggles you encounter in your life I am reminded of a flippant young man who once remarked to a Preacher in mocking fashion, “You say that unsaved people carry a great weight of sin. Frankly, I feel nothing. How heavy is Sin? Ten pounds? Fifty pounds? Eighty pounds? A hundred pounds?” The preacher thought for a moment, then replied, “If you laid a four-hundred-pound weight on a corpse, would it feel the load?” The young man was quick to say, “Of course not; it’s dead” Driving home his point, the preacher said, “The person who doesn’t know Christ is equally dead. And though the load is great, he feels none of it” The Christian, unlike the average non-Christian, is not indifferent to the weight of sin. He is actually Hypersensitive to it. Having come to Jesus Christ, his senses are awakened to the reality of sin. His sensitivity to sin intensifies as he matures spiritually. Such sensitivity is what each of us feels whenever we err and allow Sin to Creep into our lives. The Holy Spirit begins to Quicken our Spirit to the point we can not get rest until we get it right. Vs. 14 “For we know that the law is spiritual: but I am carnal, sold under sin.” Paul is reminding us that there is an internal battle going on. The spirit man that is the nature of Christ dwelling in us is constantly at war with the carnal man. It is often a struggle to do the right thing. Carnal means the Flesh, and we all know the Flesh wants to do what feels good, which is ordinarily contrary to the Will of God. When we consider that the Law is Spiritual we must then determine what we understand and believe about Man’s Nature. Paul reminded us that No good thing dwelth in the flesh. It is only by the Help of the Holy Spirit that we are able to put our flesh under subjection. Adversary causes us to walk in the flesh or by Sight • Glamorize Sin • Feels good do it • Law of Spirituality states we Walk by Faith not by Sight Let me also tell you that we serve a God of completeness. Well…what does that mean? When God works His will in us, He does not do a half way job! He does not save us half way. Everyday should be a growing process. Should not make same mistakes today that I made yesterday. • Things we used to stumble over, we no longer stumble today • Habits that controlled our life, are no longer habits in our life • Foul language when I was angry no longer exits in my moments of anger If you have not reached this stage yet – there is still hope, God has not given up on you, He is still performing a work in you. Isaiah 10:12 “Wherefore it shall come to pass, that when the Lord hath performed his whole work upon Mount Zion and on Jerusalem…” Therefore, God is still working on you, so you hold on this morning, God is not through with you yet. God is right there working in and through us helping us to work out what we have need of and He has the strength and the right tools to do the job. We need to let God accomplish His perfect will in and through our life. He knows what we have need of. You see my Brothers and Sisters, Saints have had sinners problems all throughout the Bible and even today it is a struggle, but God is able to work it out in you. • Exodus 2:11-12 “And it came to pass in those days, when




Moses was grown, that he went out unto his brethren, and looked on their bodies: and he spied an Egyptian smitting an Hebrew, one of his brethren, and he looked this way and that way, and when he saw that there was no man, he slew the Egyptian, and hid him in the sand.” • Yet God still used Moses to be his first Pastor, one of the greatest Pastor’s/Leaders of the Old Testament – Saints with Sinners Problems • II Samuel 11:2-4 “And it came to pass in an eveningtide, that David arose from off his bed, and walked upon the roof of the King’s house: and from the roof he saw a woman washing herself; and the woman was very beautiful to look upon, and David sent and inquired after the woman, and one said, is not this Bathsheba, the daughter of Eliam and wife of Uriah the Hittite? And David sent messengers, and took her; and she came in unto him, and lay with her, for she was purified from her uncleanness: and she returned unto her house.” • We know later on that David even had Uriah killed • Yet it was after this that God said “Man After My Own Heart” • Greatest King that ever lived – Saints with Sinners Problems • St. Matthew 26:74 “Then began he to curse and to swear, saying, know not the man…” • Peter walked with Jesus, sat at his feet, yet denied Jesus with foul language, Saints with Sinners Problems • Thomas refused to believe resurrection of Jesus, very essence of Christianity. Won’t Believe Unless I See For Myself… The list goes on and on, not only in the Bible but throughout all of life, God’s Great Men and women, have faltered and failed along the way. They have been Saints with Sinners Problems. Paul wrote the majority of the New Testament, I used to think well… Paul…everyone elses problems have been exposed through the Scripture, but you have not been exposed, I used to hold Paul in high regard, don’t see any sin in his life. Paul reminded us Not to think of ourselves more highly than we ought. Paul said in our preaching text, I am Saint with Sinners Problems ---- For the good that I would I do not ---- The evil which I would not, that I do ---- When I would do good evil is present with me ---- Things that I should do I don’t do those things ---- Things that I should not do, I find myself doing those things Even in the child of God evil is present with us. Nowhere do we see more clearly the conflict natures at work in each of us. Paul is living in all good conscience yet he fails to do what is right - But thank God there is hope, because of the Blood of Jesus, he is able to Wash Me Whither Than Snow, able to Pick Me Up. Because of Calvary’s Cross, I still have Hope. Because He Died for Me, able to remove my Sin, Because he Rose again on the Third Day Morning, he is able to call me his Child. Saints are not Perfect yet. God gives Pastors, God gives teachers to the churches. Why? One reason is listed in Ephesians 4:11-12 “And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; for the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ…” So it’s for the Perfecting of the Saints. Do saints need perfecting? Are saints already perfect? They’re not perfect, are they. They need perfecting. They’re still saints but they need perfecting. So, don’t ever think that a saint is perfect yet. We all need perfecting. The church is a hospital for sinners, not a club for impeccable faultless saints. ---- Because of the Holy Ghost dwelling on the inside, able to keep me from sin, able to clean me up, keep the flesh under subjection. ---- So, therefore, I realize that - I was a sinner now I am saved by Grace ---- We must be humble about ourselves and know that without God we can do nothing. There is no good thing in man. It is only through the power of Christ Jesus that we can accomplish the things we do. The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak ---- I don’t dwell on the flesh being weak – I dwell on the fact that the Spirit is willing ---- We need to ensure that we have been Washed in the Blood of Jesus. What can wash away my sins – nothing but the blood of Jesus What can make me whole again nothing but the blood of Jesus Allow the Holy Spirit to continue to quicken us to Sin! Pay attention to that, it is what causes us to develop into greater likeness of Christ Jesus! Your not dead to sin you now are aware of its work and therefore you can overcome it!

USDA Farm Service Agency urges farmers and ranchers to vote USDA Farm Service Agency (FSA) Administrator Juan M. Garcia announced that the 2013 FSA County Committee Elections began Nov. 4 with the mailing of ballots to eligible voters. The deadline to return the ballots to local FSA offices is Dec. 2, 2013. “The role and input of our county committee members is more vital than ever at a time when our country faces important choices regarding the funding and operation of our government,” said Garcia. “New county committee

members provide input and make important decisions on the local administration of disaster and conservation programs. With better participation in recent years, we have also seen promising increases in the number of women and minority candidates, helping to better represent the richness of American agriculture.” County committee members are an important component of the operations of FSA and provide a link between the agricultural community and USDA. Farmers and

ranchers elected to county committees help deliver FSA programs at the local level, applying their knowledge and judgment to make decisions on commodity price support programs; conservation programs; incentive indemnity and disaster programs for some commodities; emergency programs and eligibility. FSA committees operate within official regulations designed to carry out federal laws. To be an eligible voter, farmers and ranchers must participate or cooperate in an FSA program. A person who is not of legal voting age, but supervises and conducts the farming operations of an entire farm may also be eligible to vote. Agricultural producers in each county submitted candidate nominations during the nomination period, which ended on Aug. 1. Eligible voters who do

WGU Indiana offers new scholarship to military spouses WGU Indiana is offering a new scholarship to help spouses of U.S. military personnel go back to school and earn their bachelor’s or master’s degree in business, information technology, education or health professions. The WGU Indiana Military Spouse “‘Go Further’ Scholarship provides $500 toward WGU Indiana’s already-low tuition for up to five terms, for a total value of up to $2,500 per recipient. Tuition at WGU Indiana has remained at a flat rate of about $6,000 per year since the school’s inception in 2010. “We’re pleased to announce a scholarship that focuses on the strong, supportive spouses who are an integral part of any military family,” said Chancellor Allison Barber. “As an Army wife and during my tenure working in the Pentagon, I met many military spouses who always put their families first. I hope this scholarship motivates them to better themselves and, in turn, their families by obtaining their degree.” “At WGU Indiana we are constantly looking for new ways to support our military and show our gratitude. WGU’s model features personal mentors who are dedicated to helping our students. We’re pleased that military spouses, as WGU Indiana students, will receive one-on-one coaching to help them succeed in furthering their education,” said Krista Spencer, WGU Indiana’s military outreach coordinator and Army wife.

‘North Posey School’ continued from Page A1 expire December 31, 2016. Getting free money could be as simple as a card swipe for North Posey Schools. School board members heard a presentation from Carol Collins of First Bank regarding a debit card incentive program during their monthly meeting November 11. She explained every debit card swipe by First Bank debit card users will generate one cent for North Posey up to a maximum of $2,000 per year. She stated Evansville banks offer a similar program for their customers and First Bank wanted to open the opportunity to North Posey Schools. In exchange for the program, Collins requested exclusive rights to use the

Vikings logo for one year. A few of the board members questioned whether the exclusivity applied to credit cards by competing banks. Collins stated the logo exclusivity would only apply to debit cards for one year. The board did not take any action as Superintendent Dr. Todd Camp stated he needed to check into the legality of the logo usage. In other business, the board approved: • A vendor change from AFLAC to American Fidelity for the corporation’s 125 plan, flexible spending accounts, cancer and accident insurance. • A new 48-month lease for the corporation copy machines.

Utility Board makes change to improve customer service By Dave Pearce The appearance by a Mount Vernon resident before the Common Council meeting as the Water Utility Board at 7 p.m. on Wednesday has led to a change in policy for adjustments on some water bills. During the meeting held at the City Hall Annex, East Third Street resident Tammy Marshall appeared before the board. Marshall stated that someone must have used their water hose and was left on for days and days judging from her current water bill. She stated their bill is $611.68 and it normally runs between $75 - $100. She added they have now put a lock on their gate so no one can get into the yard. She concluded by stating they had no way of knowing this was happening. She asked the board if there was any way the bill could be adjusted. Although Water Supt. James Gray stated this was the first he had head of this particular problem, but he concurred that her bill normally runs around 4100 gallons and this bill was for 32,000. When asked how long the water had been left running, Marshall replied that she had no way of knowing. Gray stated the bill is for September usage. Board member Bill Curtis stated he had no objection to the one-time adjustment but he just wants to be sure there are no other leaks.

Gray stated he can verify that. The board approved the adjustment, pending verification that there are no other leaks. Later in the meeting, board member Andy Hoehn stated he would like to request that the Water Utility Board let Gray handle requests like the one they had tonight with Marshall. Hoehn suggested the board give him the authority for a higher limit on adjustments. Hoehn added he feels it is unnecessary and intimidating for some folks to be re-

quired to come to the meeting and to appear before the board. Board member Bill Curtis stated that Gray is already handling the first adjustment in-house. After the first adjustment, anyone requesting an adjustment must come before the board. Gray indicatedd there is no dollar amount limit on the first adjustment but that consumers come to the Board for the second adjustment in a calendar year. Gray added the resident must also produce receipts

for the repairs to the issue causing the excessive bills. The board approved the added responsibility for Gray but indicated he always has the option to come back before this board with an adjustment that he may feel is in question. Gray reminded board that the procedure for adjustments is set by ordinance, and it will need to be amended. Both sides agreed that a $1,000 limit was a good number. The ordinance will now be drafted by attorney Beth McFadin-Higgins.

North Posey High School honors fall sports athletes By Dave Pearce North Posey High School was the scene for the fall sports banquet on Wednesday. A unified dinner for all fall athletes and their families began at 6 p.m. and after a general greeting from North Posey Athletic Director Virgil Ferguson, the teams began breaking into their own individual groups in several areas of the school. However, the groups did not break until Ferguson told all in attendance that it is time once again for the annual Expressway-North Posey Truck Raffle. Ferguson reminded athletes and their parents that this annual raffle is the reason that North Posey is about the only school in the area that still provides students with free varsity letters, chevons, and team patches for their jackets. The raffle also helps provide funds for refurbishment of athlete equipment, transportation. Funds from the raffle are also used in other areas of the school. Sales began this week and will continue until the raffle in mid-February. Early purchase is suggested so those in charge of selling the tickets may have an idea how much work is left to do before nearing the end of the raffle period. Ferguson also reminded the group that both North Posey boys’ and girls’ teams stand in third place in the overall PAC Teams Standings after the fall seasons. The following trophies were accepted by the school. Team trophies included Girls Golf – Mount Vernon Invite Champs, PAC second place, Boys tennis Washington Invite runner-up, PAC second place, Volleyball PAC Second place, and Boys and Girls Soccer teams PAC third place. Regional qualifiers recognized included Girls Golf Shelby Ackerman, Boys Tennis No. 1 Doubles team Griffin Motz, Drake Davenport (24-1), Cross-Country Olivia Goebel. North Posey was represented in the Indiana Elite Soccer AllStar Game, the North versus South, by Jace Brandenstein

and Mackenzie Orlik. All-District Certificates were presented to Boys Tennis team members Griffin Motz, Drake Davenport, and Reed Gertiesen. Coaches were then called to the stage to present awards to those named to the All Pocket Athletic team in their individual sports.

Lady Wildcats show promise in opening weekend

By Dave Pearce The Mount Vernon Lady Wildcats learned a whole lot about themselves in the first two games of their season over the weekend. Like most teams, the girls have some ‘strengths’ and they also have some ‘opportunities for improvement.’ In their second game in two nights, the Wildcats found out they are in good physical condition, as they came out and played with energy and purpose on Saturday night following a loss to Central in Mount Vernon on Friday night. A good effort came up short 52-43. But the Wildcats also found out that opponents are going to try to exploit the area they were hit hardest by graduation, the guard positions. Mount Vernon fell behind Central by 14 points in the first half against a talented Central team on Friday but learned they have the ability to fight back. The Wildcats came back to actually take a lead in the fourth quarter, but the comeback took too much out of them and the Lady Bears buried the win with free throws down the stretch. “Honestly, we haven’t worked that much against full court pressure,” Mount Vernon Coach Steve Mitchell said, following the Bosse game. “In defense of these kids, we only had two practices this week where we had only nine healthy bodies. We haven’t even gone a whole lot of full court this week. These are some great kids and we a just trying to get them healthy. We’re going to work on these things and we’ll be okay. We will try to fix the things that need to be fixed. We just hope nobody gives up on us. We’re going

to stay after it.” But at tip-off on Saturday night at Bosse, the Lady Cats were ready to go. Senior Cheyenne Strobel got the Wildcats on the board first, burying a 3-pointer to open the scoring for the contest. Then on the strength of six first-quarter points by Alexis Nall and a free throw by Ellen Foster, the Wildcats jumped out to a 10-4 lead. But the Lady Bulldogs responded, scoring the final five points of the first quarter and the first eight points of the second quarter to take a 17-10 lead with 4:30 remaining in the first half. After Nall got the Lady Cats on the second-quarter scoreboard with a rebound bucket, the Lady Bulldogs answered to take a 1912 lead before the Wildcats rallied. Kellen Ray hit a pair of free throws followed by a pair by Foster. On the ensuing possession, the Bulldogs put up a quick shot and Foster came down with the rebound and went coast-to-coast to pull the Wildcats back to within 19-18 at the half. “We are just having trouble sustaining anything,” Mitchell said of his Wildcats. “We get on a six or eight point run and then we do some silly things to let them back in it. It hurts our momentum. We are a bit of a work in progress and we knew that coming in. We had some jayvee girls coming up and some varsity girls back and like I said, we’ll be alright. We’re going to find the right combination.” But the Bulldogs turned up the heat in the second half, playing with more intensity and a more physical style and the young Wildcat guards had trouble ad-

Lady Cats, from Page B1 justing. Coach Steve Mitchell attempted to adjust, bringing senior all-position player Foster to the point, but that took away a scoring threat and the Bulldogs had found out what the Lady Bears learned the night before, the Lady Wildcat guards are young and inexperienced and the Bulldogs took advantage of it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If we are going to play Ellen at the point, we are going to have to find a way to get the ball back to her once we get up the court,â&#x20AC;? Mitchell said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very effective coming off screens so we are going to have to be creative and find a way to get the ball into her hands because she can play.â&#x20AC;? The Wildcats faced fullcourt pressure the remainder of the contest against a deep Bosse squad. The Lady Bulldogs opened a 28-20 lead at about the sixminute mark of the third quarter. But again, the Lady Cats were able to fight back on free throws by Strobel and a rebound bucket by Ray. The mini-run forced a Bosse time out. But out of the time out, Abby Randall got a bucket to pull the Cats back to within 28-26. The teams traded baskets until Foster tied the score at 32-all on a free throw with 23 seconds remaining in the third quarter. The Bulldogs scored the final three points of the quarter, one of them on one of two free throws shot after the third quarter buzzer had sounded. A Nall rebound bucket tied the score at 35-all at the 7:15 mark but that would be the last tie of the game. The Lady Bulldogs slowly pulled away as they outscored the Cats 9-2 over the next four minutes before Nall was able to hit backto-back rebound baskets to pull Mount Vernon to 46-41 with 2:10 remaining. A Wildcats time out was followed by an injury to Nall at the 1:36 mark and the Bulldogs hit 8-of11 free throws down the stretch to secure the 52-43 win. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With our three letter-

winners coming back, I think they have such desire that they try to take things on themselves just a little too much sometimes,â&#x20AC;? Mitchell explained of his returnersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; mentality. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They just need to relax and let the game come to them. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not a huge team but we can put five out there that are all about the same size and rebound by committee.â&#x20AC;? Nall led the team with 18 against Bosse while Strobel had 11 while Foster and Ray had six apiece. Randall finished with two.

Perry helps Charleston move to 2-0 University of Charleston used a late second half rally to pull away from a tough Chowan team in Institute Saturday evening in the final game of the MEC/ CIAA Classic, earning a 71-61 win. Charleston jumped on the Hawks early, building a nine point lead, 14-5, after a Nichole Perry layup five minutes into the first half. Chowan responded to draw within four points at 21-25 at the 3:31 mark with most of their points coming from the inside from Summer Curtis and Courtni Williams who combined for 12 first half points. UC kept the Hawks scoreless for the remainder of the half and went on a 7-0 run to go to halftime with their largest lead of the half at 11 points, 34-23. Nichole Perry pumped in 14 points in the first 20 minutes, going 4-for5 from behind the arc to lead the Golden Eagles. Chyress Lockhart was a stat sheet filler chipping in eight points, grabbing four boards and dishing out four assists in 17 minutes of action. The Hawks came out of the locker with intense defense and quickly whittled the double digit lead down to three points, 36-39, after another Curtis layup in the paint. Chowan kept feeding the post taking

Nichole Perry advantage of their size advantage to go on a 7-0 run to grab their first lead of the game at 43-39 at the 14:18 mark of the second half. The next nine minutes played close with neither team holding a lead of more than four points. With Charleston leading by one at 62-61 and four minutes remaining, the Golden Eagles scored the next nine points and held Chowan scoreless to earn

the 10-point victory, 7161. Lockhart flirted with a triple double scoring 16 points, handing out eight assists and grabbing seven rebound. Perry went scoreless in the second half but finished the game with 14 points and a career high eight rebounds. Tianni Kelly also got a doubledouble as well pulling down 12 rebounds and putting in nine points. LeAnne Ross and Chyress Lockhart were named to the MEC/CIAA Classic All-Tournament Team based on the two day event. Charleston improved to 2-0 on the season and returns to the court next Friday as they travel to Clarion University for the Clarion University Classic where they will face the host and Millersville University.
