Mount Vernon says farewell to 14 retiring teachers By Lois Mittino Gray The resignations of 14 teachers at the end of this school year were accepted with mixed emotions by members of the Mount Vernon School Board at its Monday, March 3 meeting. School Board President Beth McFadin Higgins said that the retirees will be deeply missed and hard to replace, but deserve a restful retirement. Although the district is losing experienced staff, on the plus side, it will result in substantial savings in the next few years. Replacements with less experience will be hired at lower salaries, saving about $400,000 in the general fund. To generate this savings, the board offered incentive packages to teachers who were eligible to

retire if at least fourteen agreed to do. The minimum number has been met. Retiring teachers are Paul Allison – 26 years, Dave Bell – 36 years, Steve Brenton – 30 years, Pam Damm – 23 years, Jana Dickey – 22 years, Judy Droll – 24 years, Tolly McClatchy – 23 years, Betsy Mitchell – 30.5 years, Rhonda Moore – 30 years, Trudy Moye – 36 years, Kim Seifert – 34 years, Brian Smith – 33 years, Connie Whitehead – 29 years and Larry Zoller – 23 years. In addition, the resignations of School Secretary Kate Small – 27 years and Teacher Assistant Marcia Kessler – 20 years were accepted. Chris Diaz resigned as a physical education teacher, athletic trainer, and department chair at Mount Vernon High

School at the end of the school year. Saving money in the general fund will be a prime concern to the board if the business personal property tax is eliminated by state legislators. Board Member Mark Isaac made a motion to adopt a resolution opposing elimination of the tax that was unanimously accepted and will be sent to Indianapolis. Director of Business Loren Evans estimates the school district would lose $514,751 in direct tax revenue in 2015 if the tax is eliminated. A plan for replacement money has not been offered by the state. In other board action: • granted permission to advertise on March 12 and 19 for proposals for a childcare program for the 2014-15 school year.

• adopted updated policy and operational procedures on personnel records, family medical leave, salary deductions, leaves and absences, and union association rights. • granted permission to PAWS to use the main gym at the high school on Sunday, March 16 to conduct the city wrestling tournament. • in the future discussion portion of the meeting, the board reviewed and discussed school year calendars. The 2014-15 school year calendar is now recommended as the final calendar for the school year, with consideration and discussion given to 20152016 and the 2016-2017 school years. Pros and cons of each were bantered back and forth.

Routine stop nets arrest on drug charges

Posey man faces child molestation charges By Dave Pearce A rural Mount Vernon man, Melvin Charles Hamilton, 59, was arrested this week. Hamilton will face three felony charges of Class A Child Molesting and one Class C felony Child Molesting charge. The charges stem from allegations made by family members after two children, ages nine and four said the man had molested them. According to the probable cause affidavit, a detective of the Posey County Sheriff’s Chuck Hamilton Department began investiating the claim after being contacted by the Indiana Department of Child Services. The two children were interviewed at Holly’s House in Evansville by a forensic interviewer. The molestations are said to have occurred at Hamilton’s Middle Mount Vernon Road home while Hamilton’s wife was not at home. Hamilton was arrested and charged and bail was set at $3,000. Hamilton is free on bail until a trial date is set.

Area residents to get ‘sneak peek’ of home The Bicentennial House project, which was partially funded through a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, included a design competition in 2011. Architects were asked to design a house inspired by the original single-family homes built here by the founding community, the Harmonie Society from 1814-1824. The design needed to be affordable, energy efficient, and one that could serve a young family or a retiree. The entries were displayed at the New Harmony Gallery of Contemporary Art and the public was able to vote for their favorite design. The winning design, by architect Rupert Condict of Evansville, Indiana, entered

the engineering phase in fall 2012. The transition from design plans to construction drawings was undertaken as a service-learning project by students in an engineering course at University of Southern Indiana. The final plans were presented to the town council of New Harmony for free public use, in November 2012. New Harmony resident, Kent Parker, in cooperation with the Kent and Laurie Parker Family Foundation, engaged master craftsman Ralph Glaser, to build the house on a lot on Main Street, and to make the property accessible to the public during the bicentennial year, 2014. The house will be open for a sneak peek during the gallery stroll from 4 to 7 p.m. on March 15.

At approximately 7:56 p.m. Wednesday night, Indiana State Trooper Seth Rainey stopped Travis Schoening, 28, of Evansville, for speeding on S.R. 62 near Carson School Road. Master Trooper Kevin WaTravis Schoening ters and his K-9, Andy, were close by and assisted with the traffic stop. While walking around Schoening’s vehicle the K-9 alerted to the presence of narcotics. A further search of the inside of the vehicle revealed suspected meth and synthetic drugs. Schoening was arrested and taken to the Posey County Jail where he is currently being held on bond. Arrested and Charges: Travis Schoening, 28, 1425 Oakhill Road, Evansville, Ind. 1. Possession of Meth, Class D Felony 2. Possession of Synthetic Drug or Lookalike Substance, Class D Felony. Assisting Officers were Master Trooper Kevin Waters and his K-9, Andy, as well as Sergeant Russ Werkmeister, of the Indiana State Police. ThePosey County Sheriff’s Office was the assisting agency.

take the offer of serving nine years in the IDOC. “He plead guilty and took the nine-year sentence on Thursday,” Clowers said. According to information released by Kenneth Rose, head of the Posey County Drug Task Force, back on August 16, officers of the Posey County Sheriff’s Department were assisting the Indiana Department of Child Services with a home

visit in rural Posey County regarding the welfare of a child under the age of 18. The two agencies had traveled to the residence of John K. Brown located in the 10600 block of Shirley Road. While at the residence, personnel of both agencies observed drug related items inside the home. The owner granted officers consent to search the residence at which time personnel of the Posey County

Drug Task Force were summoned to the scene to help search and assist with the investigation. During the search of the property site, officers located an active methamphetamine laboratory along with precursors and weapons. John K. Brown was arrested on charges of Dealing in Methamphetamine (manufacture) with a firearm, a Class A felony, Possession of Precursors with the Intent to Manufac-

ture with a firearm, a Class C felony, Neglect of a Dependent, a Class D felony and Maintaining a Common Nuisance, a Class D felony “Children being subjected to living in this type of environment is one of the worst side effects of clandestine meth labs,” Rose said. “It will also be a priority of the drug task force to address that type of issue and attempt to remove those children from these conditions.”

School bus driving, like everything else, just not the same Recently on one of the cold mornings we have been having I was following a school bus on my way to work. The bus had stopped at a house and several children were running as fast as they could from their front door to the bus. The bus didn’t start moving again and I was becoming impatient so I looked toward the house and here comes one more child out the front door with one arm in his coat and trying to get the other arm in as he ran as fast as he could. I have to admit I got a chuckle out of the whole scene as I saw mom standing at the door waving goodbye to all of her children. This was a familiar scene during my school days. It seemed like it was the same families every

day that we had to honk and wait for them to come out the door.

THE WAY I SEE IT... BY CONNIE PEARCE On the rest of my drive to work I started thinking about my school bus days as a child and school bus drivers in general. First I want to say that my parents have been school bus drivers since the 1970s so there are a lot of stories over all of those years. My dad, who is still driving a bus, was just telling me recently how there is a shortage of bus drivers. They do OK on a day-to-

day basis but if someone is absent for some reason it becomes tricky. I was thinking about the kind of people who become bus drivers. A lot were farmers since it was easy to add into their schedule each day, especially during the off-season. Like my dad, many farmers got up early and checked on livestock, drove the morning route, farmed until midafternoon, drove the afternoon route and then farmed into the night. My aunt and uncle did the same routine and still do as well. Another kind of bus driver is the stay at home mom, like my mom was. This way you are always on the same schedule as your children which worked out very well. Some drivers are retired,

like my other uncle who retired as Captain in the Navy and wanted a part-time supplement income. Another kind of bus driver I can think of is ministers who can normally be available for the hours required. Most bus drivers don’t get paid a great deal but it is certainly enough to add to the household income to keep it going and we all know that it takes a lot these days. To me being a bus driver though is more like a service to the community. It is a very important job because they are transporting our children and grandchildren to school each day. A lot of the drivers drive the students to the out of town extracurricular events as well. My dad happens to love taking the bus to sporting events since he is most likely going to attend anyway so when he drives the team bus or cheerleaders and can get paid to enjoy the games. Since he is not a music person he enjoys taking the band members to their competition so he can sleep all day and catch up on his rest while they are competing. Back to my bus riding days… Things were different then. We were barely able to breathe much less shout on our bus. We had to talk with

our ‘inside voice’ to the person in our seat with us. We could not turn around and talk to the seat behind us. We did have some mischief back in those days. One specific incident I recall happening to me with my bus driver Donnie McFadin. I remember it like it was yesterday and I was in early elementary school. I was such a bad child. I chewed chewing gum on the bus. It was so bad Donnie drove in our driveway and came to the door to tell my mom how bad I had been. I remember running into the house and jumping behind the couch to hide. My parents had always told us that if we got into trouble at school or on the bus we would be in twice as much trouble when we got home. I seriously don’t remember what they did to me but I survived and never chewed gum on the bus again. Some of the kids on the bus would do spit balls but truthfully that is the worst I can remember. As my dad and other friends and relatives who still drive today tell a lot different story of the mischief that happens in 2014. My dad has a route and his children misbehave so badly the corporation recently installed a video camera for his protection. As I was still driving to

work my fond memories of riding to school on the bus turned to sad memories of how our country has changed. I listen to school teachers and bus drives talk about how they are not allowed to discipline the children the way they did when I was young and think what in the world are we creating in this country. It is my opinion this is just another example of taking God out of the schools and the place it is taking us, a very dark place. God teaches discipline in the Bible. As a matter of fact our Sunday School lesson last Sunday was about God disciplining and a couple of weeks ago the sermon was about the same topic. As I approached my place of work I came to the conclusion that all I can do about it is pray, pray for our children, school bus drivers, teachers and our country that we return to the discipline needed to make our world a better place in which to live. I would ask that you would join me in this prayer. Maybe, just maybe some day all that our school bus drivers and teachers will have to worry about is someone chewing gum or throwing spit balls. Wouldn’t that be a great day!

Guest Editorial: Vince Oakley Common Core--have we been here before?

Guest Column State Rep. Wendy McNamara A variety of senate billes This session I have been able to sponsor and co-sponsor Senate Bill (SB) 291, directed at human trafficking investigations, SB 222, relating to athletes that receive concussions and SB 32, concerning public official bonding. This week I would like to highlight these three bills. Currently, human trafficking is the world’s fastest growing criminal act and brings in over 32 billion dollars annually across the world. SB 291 will continue the efforts put forth in Senate Enrolled Act 4 from 2011. Discussion began on human trafficking in Indiana, when Indianapolis hosted the Super Bowl, human trafficking typically expanding around major sporting and entertainment events. This bill put human trafficking into state statue recognizing it as a Class B felony as well as further defined human trafficking as anyone who recruited, harbored, or transported another person by force or fraud. This included both children and those above 18. This law was later expanded in 2013 to broaden the scope of potential cases, allowing more thorough investigations. Right now in Indiana, the Attorney General does not have the same authority as law enforcement to access, maintain or investigate information regarding violations of human trafficking. This is an efficiency problem in our state and SB 291 will help correct

it. This bill will provide the Attorney General with more investigative power so Indiana can continue to fight against human trafficking. This bill has passed through the House Criminal Codes committee and will move forward to a full House vote. SB 32 is important to citycounty officials. Currently in Indiana, someone who is running for county office that may handle money, such as treasurer or sheriff, is required to take out a bond. These bonds are meant as an insurance policy against embezzling or corruption. Unfortunately, state statute does not recognize individuals who may not be able to take out a bond due to their poor financial situation. SB 32 attempts to address this problem, which has occurred in Southern Indiana when a candidate was elected into office but was not able to take out a bond. In order to address this issue, which has happened close to home, SB 32 will alter the form which candidates would fill out, insuring that they recognize they may have to be bonded at some point. We are hoping that this will motivate people to speak to bonding authorities to see if they can in fact be bonded if they are elected for the position. These changes will aid in informing local candidates of their responsibilities once elected. This bill has passed unanimously in the House and has

been returned to the Senate with amendments. As a principal, high school students are one of my top priorities and SB 222 is directed at student athletes. Under this bill a student athlete who has been taken out of a game due to a suspected concussion or head injury, may not return to the game until at least 24 hours after the injury. The bill hopes to alleviate any concerns for athlete’s safety, as Hoosier students remain one of our top priorities here at the Statehouse. This piece of legislation also states that coaches are required to complete a course concerning player safety and concussions at least once every two years. This will help in keeping leaders aware and trained in recognizing the signs of head injury in an athlete, enforcing health and safety. SB 222 has passed through the Senate and the House Education Committee and will be discussed further on the House floor. I like to work with a large variance of legislation to ensure that our state is receiving a well-rounded view on all issues. The legislation that is getting passed through both the House and the Senate is important to Indiana’s future and I look forward to seeing this session’s success enacted into state law. Rep. McNamara (R-Mount Vernon) represents portions of Posey and Vanderburgh counties.

Since our founding, there have been differing opinions on the purpose and scope of public education in the United States. For simplification purposes, those opinions can be placed in to two separate divisions. The first division believes the primary purpose of public education is to prepare laborers for the workforce while possibly gleaning a very few of the brightest students and putting them on a path for higher studies. The second division believes the primary purpose of public education is to give all citizens an even base of studies from which they can then decide what they wish to pursue in life. The evolution of public education in the United States has largely followed a cyclical advancement along those two divisions. Interestingly, many of the ‘Founding Fathers’ strongly believed in the labor preparedness role of public education. Thomas Jefferson spoke of the two different tracks of education for either the ‘laboring or the learned.’ Scholarship was believed to allow very few of the laboring to advance, Jefferson says, by ‘raking a few geniuses from the rubbish.’ It is important to remember, education was not the driving force of socioeconomic advancement it is today. Unlike today, education just wasn’t necessary to earn a good wage for most laborers during these times. Artisan skills were much more important to increased wage-earning than a liberal arts education. The industrial U.S. needed a docile, obedient workforce and looked for public education to provide it. Unfortunately, the result of these policies was a largely ignorant populace. Public education in

Chapter 29 - What’s Next? Chief Lookout commandeered several vehicles to transport the muddied, bloodied jubilant Haskell players back to the Duncan Hotel before darkness set in. Lookout ordered steaks GAVEL and clean busboy uniforms GAMUT for each player and had Raven arrange for the team to BY JUDGE stay and shower in several JIM REDWINE of the hotel suites. The dirty football uniforms, cleats and helmets were bundled up in sheets and stored in the basement for cleaning then to await transportation back to Haskell the next day. Raven, Frank McDonald and Richard Hanley collected the players’ belongings from the various Osage homes while the team was getting cleaned up for supper to be held in the ornate ballroom with its huge crystal chandelier. Titanic Thompson and Hubert ‘Daddy Warbucks’ Cokes collected the two hundred thousand dollars from the four young colored men who had stood guard over the

money inside the Colored Baptist Church. They gave the Reverend Mister Henry Dangerfield five hundred dollars for the church and one hundred dollars for the bar-b-que. They paid Marshal Frank ‘Pistol Pete’ Eaton an additional hundred dollars for officiating. They, also, suggested that Charles ‘Pretty Boy’ Floyd might want to make comparable contributions. Numerous Osages collected from Cowboys fans on their bets placed on Haskell, but Arnold Rothstein had managed to escape without being confronted by the Indians whose bets he could not cover. He was never seen again in Osage County. However, he would welsh on his gambling debts one too many times a few years later in New York City. The proud and happy Indians pledged many thousands of dollars to the Haskell Football Stadium Fund. Only two years after this clandestine contest, one of Amer-

ica’s premier college programs would finally have a real stadium in which to play their football games. Late in the evening of December 28, 1924 Raven Who Sings and Coach Frank McDonald eased away from the revelry at the ballroom. “I suppose I could’ve allowed the boys to have a drink or two, but I have always vowed to myself to care for these kids as if they were my own. I wouldn’t want a son of mine to break the law even if it is a stupid law.” “Frank, there is plenty of boozing taking place among the adults, Indian and white. There’s no need to subject the Haskell players to criticism and maybe discipline for the sake of well intentioned but overzealous fans who do not have your responsibility. It was a great game. The boys are already sky high. They don’t need chemically induced intoxication. What’s next for them?” “Actually, Raven, I was just having similar thoughts. What’s next for us?”

the U.S. was largely thought of in this way until the early twentieth century. In the early to mid-twentieth century, the purpose of public education began to evolve again. Industrialized America brought with it a great increase in wealth which trickled down to even the lowest of socioeconomic levels. Increased mechanization of the workforce also allowed the poorer class more time to pursue other interests. With a richer populace, politics and political work also became more important to a greater number of people. With this change, the focus of education became more the preparedness of good citizens. Obviously, history and government classes gained importance. The basis of mathematics teaching was a future understanding of economics. Literature and humanities fostered the critical thinking skills which are important in civil society. Social activities and athletics developed cooperation and consideration of others. To accomplish this type of education required a teacher who did not simply teach a subject, but who was constantly conscious of the relationship of the subject being taught to the greater purpose of learning to live within a free society. The teacher’s role in the classroom was to facilitate learning by guiding a child’s natural curiosity. In the last 15 years, public education evolved yet again. As is often true, when people lose the understanding of their history, they resurrect past failures in the forsaken attempt to make them successful. The changing economic situation in the U.S. led to a greater push for mathematics and science education. History, literature and the humanities were given back-burner status and we again find ourselves with a

Letters to the Editor Ten steps necessary to destroy free enterprise When Marx and Engels wrote the Communist Manifesto in 1848, they presented ten steps necessary to destroy any free enterprise system and replace it with Communism. Step number two is to establish a heavy progressive or graduated income tax. At that time, this country did not have an income tax. It took 65 years for the progressives to sell it to the American people. Back then, it was hard to realize the dangers it brought to this nation. Today, we can see why Marxism considers it a necessary tool to bring down any productive nation and turn it into a Socialist State.






largely ignorant populace. The federal government partnership with big-business which largely led to ‘No Child Left Behind’ and now to ‘Common Core’ has usurped the power of local and state government in education. Contrast the mid-twentieth century classroom with today’s standard-driven classroom. There is little to no room in today’s classroom for teachable moments. We are doing a great injustice to the ‘education professionals’ in our classrooms by not allowing them to truly teach our children. The teachers of today must focus on making sure their students score well on standardized exams rather than imparting their passion for their subjects on their students. What other result can you expect when a teacher’s pay is explicitly tied to student test scores? Scripted lesson plans leave little room for modification. Teachers are told they have greater freedom to diversify their methods and are then judged on the results of standardized tests. The ability of students to learn at their own pace is therefore a complete farce. Teachers cannot render enthusiasm when they themselves have lost it. We again find ourselves at a point in the historical cycle where the purpose of public education is to prepare laborers for the workforce. Our teachers are asked to categorize and label students as early as kindergarten. The labels these students are given in kindergarten will be extremely difficult if not impossible to change. The top students are ‘gleaned’ and put on a college path while the rest are put on a career path. The individual, the essential organ of a free society, is being replaced with test-taking, score-driven automatons. We have tried this before . . . it doesn’t work.


The House Ways and Means Committee (HW&M) oversees the IRS and is considering proposals to fix our tax system. Recent abuses demand the replacement of the IRS and it’s 70,000+ pages of regulations. Kevin Brady (a ranking member of HW&M recently wrote, ‘Americans shouldn’t fear the IRS.’ I disagree. Every citizen should fear the IRS and should have feared it 100 years ago. The Marxist knew then it would grow into the monster it is today. I agree with the remainder of Mr Brady’s article promoting the Fair Tax. Newsroom Granbury, Texas BOOKKEEPING CONNIE PEARCE

In an effort to better support the needs of the community, Gentiva Hospice, a member of the Gentiva Health Services family of home health and hospice providers, is bringing a new concept to its hospice care. Gentiva’s Memory Care specialty is the first of its kind, reaching out to the growing number of patients, families and caregivers who suffer from the effects of Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. As the national leader in homecare, Gentiva has created this specialized care to address what amounts to an epidemic in the country. The statistics speak for themselves. According to the Alzheimer’s Association, dementia, which includes Alzheimer’s, is the sixth leading cause of death among those 65 or older, and half of those over the age of 85 suffer from the disease. In addition, dementia often accompanies other conditions, and any diagnosis accompanied by dementia leads to a greater need for care. “Dementia is reaching a Lori Redman helps out in the kitchen during the Posey crisis state in this country, County Community Center Rummage Sale.

Crossno, MD, FAAFP, FAAHPM. “Gentiva is responding to this need with specialized training for its clinicians, social workers, and others who work with patients and families.” In addition to this training, Gentiva’s Memory Care program incorporates measures to help with the symptoms of dementia and to assess for vulnerabilities prevalent with those with dementia, such as falls and infections. Gentiva has also created a caregiver’s guide that helps educate fami-

lies about how to care for someone with dementia and Alzheimer’s. And all of this is supported by Gentiva’s network of national and local medical directors with expertise in the care and oversight of dementia patients. “Having this program in our community is a gift,” said Crossno. “It is something that will truly reach so many people and provide the help they need in a way that no one else in hospice is addressing.” For more information on the Memory Care program and hospice care from Gentiva, call 812-476-8990.

Run-free Pantyhose, maybe someday I recently read a Facebook post from one lady wondering why it still seems impossible for manufacturers to make pantyhose that are more run free. In reading this, I realized how very long it has been since I have actually worn a pair of pantyhose. Occasionally, for an important event like a wedding, etc, I do have to buy a pair. For that matter, it is very seldom that I wear a dress anymore. Of course, I am no longer in the workforce, so that makes a big difference in what one wears most days. I still see many folks wearing dresses and pantyhose, but I am glad I don’t have to. I grew up in the times when it was required of me on a daily basis. Yes, I did spend lots of money on them for many years. Can my readers remember having a drawer full of pantyhose, in various stages of use? Everyone was sure to keep a new pair for emergencies. However, the older ones were used for as long as possible. If one leg became un-wearable, many folks cut that leg off, and wore two different pairs, with double the panty part, and using a good leg from both. If a small run was beginning, a little dab of nail polish stopped it from becoming a total throw-away. Oh yes, I did that many times. I can remember when the ‘sandalfoot’ type was introduced for use with summer footwear. The reinforced toe version seemed ugly, so this looked better. However, this type was even more prone to get runs. I can also remember when black, navy, and even textured versions of pantyhose came along. A translucent type of white was also available, worn by nurses and others. However it was not a very flattering look for chubby legs. Up until the late 50’s, la-

dies wore nylon stockings and garter belts to hold them up. This look has now taken


on a much more scandalous stereotype. All stockings had back seams when they were first offered for sale. DuPont introduced nylon in 1939, and that replaced silk and rayon. However, nylon was used for war necessities during the early 40s, so many women drew ‘seams’ on the backs of their legs with an eyebrow pencil to make it look like they were wearing stockings. When I was a teenager, almost all girls dressed much like older women, with 4” heels and hose. That was the expected look for many occasions, like going to church, weddings, funerals, and even more everyday events. My age group has seen and worn all versions of hosiery, and now, ironically, we mostly wear slacks and other types of stockings or socks. I can remember seeing office workers when they began to go to work dressed up, but with bare legs. It is considered the norm now, but the first time I saw a group from a bank at lunch one day, and noticed they had no stockings on, I could not believe they would go out that way. Boy, have things changed. Madeleine, I know that your Aunt Heather prefers tights to pantyhose, and has them in many different colors. Grooming rules have relaxed quite a bit, and in many cases, that is not always a good thing. What look might work for a young slender girl, with toned and tanned legs does not quite look the same with others. I sometimes wonder

if some of the people I see out in public actually have mirrors in their houses. In my opinion, following style trends does not excuse total disregard for any type of grooming at all. Madeleine, I know you get tired of me making small corrections on you some mornings before you are out the door to school. However, even in the 21st century, I still believe that we are instantly judged by how we present ourselves to the world. I can remember Grandma Stella telling me that if you kept your hair nice, and your shoes clean and polished, the middle part could be a little more relaxed. If she could pay a visit to WalMart at midnight and look around these days, she would never believe the sights. Her version of letting go a bit was wearing a housedress out shopping for groceries, or forgetting to take her apron off. Yes, pantyhose are still worn by many people every day, and there are lots of choices from color to size. It was always a bit puzzling to look at the chart on the package and figure out which size was correct. This was another challenge for short chubby people like me. My height and weight were never in the normal range. It was always a bit embarrassing to purchase ‘queen size.’ So, Madeleine, in your lifetime, I am sure you will buy your share of pantyhose for various occasions, but perhaps in time they will fit better and not run quite as easily. Once, I was visiting an older lady who showed me the box of clothing she had prepared to be laid to rest in. On the very top of the box was a brand new package of hosiery. I just had to inquire if they were really necessary for this use. I did ask this in a polite way. She gave me a shocked look, and said, “Well, honey, I can’t imagine being put into my casket and not being properly dressed.” So, it looks like pantyhose and other hosiery is going to be around for a very long time, whether they are destined for one quick wearing, or for all eternity. Hm, maybe I should have a pair put back, also.

Red Cross Blood Donation Opportunities Blood donors are everyday heroes who help save lives. During March, Red Cross Month, the American Red Cross recognizes these lifesavers, thanks them for their generosity and encourages others to join their ranks. Courtney Krisher will be forever grateful for the donors who helped save her brother, Lucas. The siblings, who are both members of the U.S. military, had given blood together just a few months before Lucas was in a motorcycle accident. He was rushed to the hospital with extensive internal bleeding and received four pints of blood. “Some people call me and my brother heroes (because of our military service), but I think the same could be said for people who give blood,” Courtney said. The Red Cross has been meeting the needs of patients like Lucas since World War II and today partners with nearly 2,700 hospitals and transfusion centers throughout the U.S. To make an appointment to give blood and be an everyday hero, visit redcrossblood. org or call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-7332767).

Big trucks, county roads cause problems bond could then, presumably, be returned. Bill Snyder of Rex Energy said the road condition issues first came to his attention last week when the road was closed so that Posey County Highway crews could do maintenance work. The roads were also posted to a 10,000 weight limit. David Carter of Citation admitted the road fell apart and after a conversation with Posey County Highway Superintendent Steve Schenk, his company actually sent a road crew out to try to fix the road. He also suggested that each of the three oil companies work together and adopt a one-mile portion of the three miles that are in the worst shape and used most often, to maintain. Both Carter and Snyder were in favor of fixing the road themselves to try to placate the county instead of paying the bond fees. “Rather than do the bonding, I’d rather just go in there and repair the road and if that doesn’t suit ya, we can go with the bonding or do something different,” Carter said. No matter what solution is determined, all of the oil companies are eager to find one so they may return to work. Commissioner Jim Alsop expressed concern over keeping the road as chip and seal

versus paving the road in order to stop the problem from perpetuating in the future. Snyder agreed and stated his company would like to explore the possibility and costs associated with paving the road. The third company, Campbell Oil, Inc. was represented by attorney Matthew McArthy who stated his clients were not aware of any complaints about their company’s activities on the roads in the area. He added they have also tried to grade the road and have added gravel. McArthy also stated his clients’ willingness to work with the other oil companies to develop a plan. Resident Mark Staples lives on Continental Camp Road and has lived in the area his entire life. He stated he used to work in the same oil fields the current companies are working. “We just didn’t do things like that. I mean, when road conditions got to that point, I mean you just didn’t drive on them. I pulled out of my driveway one day and 12 semis all in a row came up through there and half the road was starting to fall apart. I mean, just ethically you just can’t do anything like that,” Staples said. Local farmer Rick Ziliak lives on Matz Road and said his vehicles have sustained damaged trying to navigate around three-foot holes on the road. He added he has personally graded the road in an effort to improve the road conditions. “We just totally destroyed our trucks this fall trying to haul corn down the road,” Ziliak said. Ziliak informed the commissioners that a fourth oil company, Vistatech, is also to blame for road conditions. “They can’t just wait until their done to do something with the road. They have to do something to keep it up Alexandria Meeker shows off her tree climbing skills as they’re going because we at the Alexandrian Public Library’s playground on SunContinued on Page A6 day, March 9. Photo by Michelle Gibson By Valerie Werkmeister Deplorable road conditions on the northern fringes of Posey County have local residents concerned and upset. A number of residents on Continental Camp and Matz Roads in Griffin attended last Tuesday’s (March 4) Posey County Commissioners meeting and heard pledges from both the elected officials, and the oil companies causing the problem, to address the matter. For the past several months, heavy truck traffic has increased significantly on the chip and seal roads as oil companies use the roads to gain access to oil rigs located in the area. Officials from three of the companies: Rex Energy, Citation, and Campbell Oil, Inc., stated their willingness to work with each other and the county to develop a solution. Commissioners first recognized the problem last summer and heard advice from other area counties, in similar situations, on establishing an ordinance in which the oil companies would be required to pay a bond. Oil companies would, for example, pay an initial bond fee of $100,000 per mile for paved blacktop and $50,000 for gravel roads. Those funds would be used to repair the roads in the event they are damaged. If the roads are not damaged, the

Wiley Yancey explained he lives at the very end of Matz Road and his main concern was the dust. His 14-year-old granddaughter lives with him and suffers from asthma. He advised that conditions were very poor last summer and limited the enjoyment of their property outside. He requested a short stretch of road near his property be chip and sealed to help keep the dust down. “If you could just do something and keep

it up that would be awesome…so I can go out and have a picnic in my front yard and not have a gritty steak,” Yancey said. Alsop requested a committee be formed consisting of oil industry representatives, county officials and local residents. Ziliak and Staples volunteered to be a part of that committee. Commissioner Jerry Walden stated the commissioners have been working on a plan and hope to have an ordinance in place soon.

Missionaries Around the World: Ryan Stead Family Southern Africa, one has to wonder what He is up to. Which is exactly what we have done for the last fifteen years. A journey that has given us three beautiful children, taken us through four states, and coast to coast. All the while asking, ‘God what do you want with our lives?’ In 2011 God began to unravel the mystery. My wife Amanda was unexpectedly asked to fill a spot on an Missions One Team going to Faith Home in Honduras, while there God spoke to her heart and told her she was home — causing a great deal of confusion at first, but over the next few months God gave me a dream that I was on a mountain top overlooking a facility. Even though I had never been there I knew it was Faith Home. So I called the Ryan and Amanda Stead, Thomas, Sam and Emily International Missions Director, Sean Warren, and we When God’s extraordi- to intersect — one from ru- agreed to go to Honduras in nary plan causes two lives ral Ohio and the other from January 2012.

Seeds of the Sower

by Michael Guido

Fear comes from many different sources. It can be a person or a place. Sometimes it erupts when everything seems calm and serene. Often it seems to grip us when we know we are in the center of God’s will, doing God’s work and trusting that we are doing it in His way. All of us have those moments of being jolted by uncertainty and feelings of insecurity. It was no different with David. In Psalm 6 it begins with a statement that suggests that he is trying to deflect God’s wrath. “Oh Lord,” he cries, “do not rebuke me in your anger.” Does this suggest that he is afraid of being punished for some sin he has committed? Or might he fear God’s judgment for something he did in the past while he was still a sinner? Could it be that he is afraid to

ask for healing as he was going through a time of sickness? He admits to ‘being weak,’ his ‘bones being troubled’ and his soul being ‘greatly troubled.’ He really needed help as all of us do from time to time. But notice what he did: he did not focus on his pain and problems, he focused on the mercy of God. “Have mercy on me,” he cried. He needed God’s help. And in the midst of his fear whether it was his sickness or some sin from the past that haunted him - he had full confidence in God’s mercy and believed that He would hear him and heal him. When we are overwhelmed by the issues of life, only our faith in God’s mercy and power can restore us. Visit us at Guido Gardens, Metter, Ga.

trip God confirmed the call to Faith Home in Honduras. Upon arrival back in the United States, we began to pray and seek God for guidance as we filled out the application to submit our candidacy to the General Baptist International Missions. Throughout the process God continued to confirm our calling as door after door opened. It became clear by the middle of 2012 that there could be no more reservations — it was time to accept the call, time to give it all to God, and time to go. Our journey to Faith Home (Hogar de fe) in Honduras is only beginning, so what are the next steps? Firstly we cannot do this alone, either spiritually or physically. Therefore we need people to come along side us and support us both through prayer and financially. For further information go to

rest in the Ukraine has been fighting between those wanting to be more involved with Western Europe and those wanting to be more closely tied to Russia. This dispute must be solved or at least quelled with the side wanting

ties to Russia coming out on top before the prophecies of Ezekiel 38-39 can come to pass. What is happening in the Ukraine is nothing more than the puzzle pieces of history and Scripture being put in place.

Preacher’s Point: The Puzzle Must Be Finished By Pastor Timothy Johnson, Countryside Baptist Church Russia has invaded the Ukraine; more specifically (at least up until this writing) Crimea an area within the Ukraine. Is this prophesied in the Bible? No, this specific invasion is not. However, there is an invasion foretold in the Scripture that this assault could be laying the groundwork for. Ezekiel 38-39 tells of a future offensive against Israel that will include Ukrainian and Russian cooperation. When it comes to Bible prophecy nearly everyone agrees on what the future events will be. None of us know for certain when these events will take place but Christ did tell us we can see them approaching (Matthew 24:36-37). The battle of Ezekiel 3839 will occur when Israel feels safe (Ezekiel 38:12). If you are thinking, “Israel feels safe? That will never happen.” or “Wonderful; a treaty must be signed and love flows through the Middle East.” you are mistaken on both counts. Psalm 83, the book of Amos and several other passages tell us of a battle that happens before the battle of Ezekiel. In this battle Israel is

invaded by Lebanon, Syria, Jordan and the Palestinians. The battle does not go well for Israel. In fact, the governmental buildings in Jerusalem will be destroyed by fire (Amos 2:5). With things looking grim, much of the government destroyed and the armies of her enemies flooding across the borders Israel will utilize the “Sampson Option” and launch her nukes. The Bible records throughout the book of Amos that all of the invaders are destroyed by “fire.” The world now has a huge problem. Nukes have been used on a wide scale, the area is decimated, Israel although still standing has little or no government or military left. Some nations will say Israel had no choice, others will deplore her for her actions but all will be determined to not allow her to use such destruction in the future. Massive cleanup is needed, the rebuilding of infrastructure, the disposal of the millions of dead. Israel will be looking to rebuild, expand and to replenish her military. Things will appear to be an unsolvable mess. I believe out of these ruins comes the signing of the covenant with the Antichrist that starts the tribulation period as foretold in the Bible (Daniel 9:27).

Israel will finally be at peace, or so they think (Jeremiah 8:11). Not all, but her nearest enemies have been destroyed. They are under the protection of the Antichrist and are rebuilding the country. Because of the rebuilding process jobs will be a plenty. Money will be coming in from her natural gas drilling and the dispute with Lebanon over who owns the gas is over because Lebanon has been defeated. This prosperity and feeling of safety is what Russia and others need to surprise Israel with an attack (Ezekiel 38:11-12). The lands involved in the Ezekiel invasion are listed in Ezekiel 38:2, 5-6. One would need to compare maps of Ezekiel’s day with maps of today to see who the nations of Ezekiel are, so here it is: ·Magog = Russia ·Persia = Iran ·Gomer = Ukraine ·Togarmah = Turkey ·Ethiopia and Libya are Ethiopia and Libya as we know them. The passage also speaks of Gomer’s bands, the bands of Togarmah and “many people with thee” giving an indication that other nation’s will be involved as well. Many scholars think this latter group is the old Soviet states we now know as Georgia,

Armenia and Azerbaijan. The point is the Ukraine sides with Russia and invades Israel at some future date. For this to happen The Ukraine and Russia must be looking at the world through similar eyes. The recent un-

Laundry Service provides clean clothes, establishes future for Bob By Lois Mittino Gray Some parents invest in a college fund or savings bonds to ensure a good future for their children. Local entrepreneurs Brenda and Jim ‘Smokey’ Rainey bought their son a business venture to teach him the ropes and help him out in the beginning so he

could get established as they get on in years. Bob’s Laundry Service opened last November at 133 Main Street in Mount Vernon, the site once occupied by the Peerless Tavern. The service picks up laundry on Tuesdays on a route that includes businesses and local patrons. They are cleaned by

Don Clayton’s Cleaners in Evansville and finished by Friday. The service delivers the cleaned clothes on Friday’s route back to Mount Vernon. Persons who wish to use the service may drop off at the store location or call to be put on the route for pickup at home. The namesake in ‘Bob’s Laundry’ is eighteen year old son, Robert. The Raineys adopted him in 2005 when he was ten years old, along with his brother Walter who was eight at the time. The boys were originally from Chicago, but their mother Brenda calls them both ‘Posey-County planted’ now. Robert just graduated from Mount Vernon High School last year and Walter, also called Cleo, is a junior there. Robert worked at Omni Services for a while this summer until his new business was ready. Smokey, an experienced woodworker, refurbished the shelves and fixtures while Brenda and daughter Rachel were the go-fers who helped get supplies and tools. Rachel opened a venue next door called Three Chicks Fudgery when the building was finished so the structure is truly a ‘family affair.’ “Robert is a personable boy who loves dealing with the public”, his mother said with pride. “We knew if we got him started at the onset then he would have a business

to rely on since we are getting older.” The pair, born and raised in Mount Vernon, are in their senior years now. Smokey has had this unusual nickname for 65 years. He got it at about age five while playing baseball. He was the catcher and Smokey was a famous catcher at the time. The business has plans to possibly expand when the weather warms and add a café type ‘hamburger shop.’ “Smokey is so good at remodeling that we would like to make a nice eatery up from the river so people can walk the river trail and enjoy a bite,” Brenda said. She is excited about all the events and grant money that is earmarked toward the river trail improvements. The couple presently leases the building from Steve Loehr, former owner of the Peerless, who has helped them tremendously with getting started. All three are friends from Mount Vernon High School days and Steve has even offered use of an old jukebox in the café. Business hours are 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. for drop off. The phone number is 643-5055. If someone needs something washed, dried, ironed quickly, Brenda wants to be of service and you may call on her cell phone at 431-5647. ‘If it’s something special, we can handle it.’

Crop insurance closing date for Spring-planted crops nears Producers of spring-planted crops in Illinois, Indiana, Michigan and Ohio that are interested in buying crop insurance, or making a change to an existing policy, can do so until the March 15 sales closing date. Crop insurance can protect producers from natural disasters which affected crop yields and revenues. Producers have

a number of coverage choices, including yield coverage, revenue protection and area risk policies. Revenue protection safeguards a producer from yield losses and price movement. Area risk plans replace the group plans of insurance (GRP/GRIP) and offer coverage based on county yield data, where available.

Plans are currently underway to organize the Eleventh Annual Senior Spring Carnival for Posey County and all are invited to attend. This event will provide an informational and fun-filled day for Seniors throughout Posey County and is being organized through Cloverleaf Retirement Center and Need A Nurse, Inc. The goal is to provide games and/or informational booths from

organizations. Lunch will be served free of charge for all Seniors who attend, compliments of vendor booth proceeds and/or donations. The cost to attend is $35 for profit organizations - $25 non-for-profit organizations. We are asking participants to bring their own table/chair for their booth, a door prize and any informational brochures or handouts that they wish. If they choose, vendors may

want to have a game geared towards Seniors. Vendors lunch is included in fee. Any remaining food items will be donated to the food pantry. The deadline to register is April 11, 2014. Please mail registration forms and check to: Monica Evans, Need A Nurse, Inc., 2318 West Franklin Street, Evansville, IN 47712. For any additional information contact Monica at 812-205-1815.

Public Works considers emergency sewer truck replacement By Lois Mittino Gray Charles Parsley representing Best Equipment of Indianapolis appeared before the Mount Vernon Board of Public Works and Safety with a poser of a question to consider at the March 6 meeting. Should the much-needed $92,000 in repairs be done on the 1999 Vac-Con sewer cleaning truck or should it be traded in for a new model valued at $331,536, with an additional $15,000 off on trade-in? Parsley told the board that the current truck’s vacuum system that pulls materials out of sewers is unsafe as is. “The age on the bearings creates a vibration which could lead to ignition and sparks. Right now you have already gotten five more years from that truck than most towns do. We have better technology at present and can save 40 percent in fuel economy with a new truck.” The dealer explained that the city could go through NJPA, a na-

tionwide purchasing coop, to purchase it quickly as the bidding process is already completed through it. “With a machine this unsafe, it allows you to purchase it on an emergency basis.” A new unit could be ready in 30-45 days. If the city decides to just repair the old one, it can be completed in a month. After discussion, the board agreed that it seems fiscally silly to invest so much money in repairs to such an old truck. “We’ll never get our money back out of it,” Board Member Bill Curtis conceded. He was hesitant to spend so much money though on a new truck without taking a look at where the monies are available and what fund they would come from to pay it. “This is quite a chunk of money and we can’t make this decision in ten minutes.” As an interim move, the city could purchase a $58,468.90 trailer jet unit for backup purposes or to use if the big truck was on another site. It holds 700 gallons of water with a three-fourths inch

Wabash River Levee 5 under review By Valerie Werkmeister Posey County Commissioners learned a congressional inquiry will delay the completion of the long-awaited digital flood plain maps. The news was delivered by Mindy Bourne, Area Plan Commission Director, during their March 4, meeting. Bourne explained that she had received notice from the Federal Emergency Management Agency, or FEMA, the Wabash River Unit Levee 5 was under review, as it was characterized as a non-accredited levee. She stated they were going to assess the levee analysis approaches that are currently used to model the flood hazard areas. The analysis would consist of modeling and engineering and would cost the county time and money. Bourne did not know the total cost of the project, but knew that FEMA would not foot the entire cost and the county would need to pay a portion. In order to find an alternative to the setback, Bourne contacted the Department of Natural Resources (DNR). They informed her that the county could apply for a waiver and advised her it would be in the county’s favor to do so. DNR officials told her that the analysis would most likely not change the non-accreditation status. Gibson County is also affected by this project and Bourne stated they had also decided to opt out by sending a waiver letter to FEMA. The letter states, in part, ‘the county has determined that the

current modeling approach for the Wabash Level Unit 5 associated with this county-wide mapping update does not appropriately represent the flood risks associated with this levee system.’ Commissioners approved her recommendation and agreed to sign the waiver letter. Bourne hopes the digital flood maps will be complete by May. Commissioners approved Betty Postletheweight’s request to consolidate voting precincts into one voting area. She stated this will reduce the election workforce by 45 workers and save the county money in the upcoming election. The proposed consolidation areas include the following precincts: Black four and six which votes in Harvestime Temple; Black five and 13 will vote in the Hovey House; Black seven and 11 will vote in the Masonic Lodge; Black eight and 12 will vote in Mount Vernon General Baptist Church; Harmony one, two and three; Lynn East and West; Robb one and two and Smith East and West. “I think we need to get qualified workers and I think this is what Posey County needs,” Postletheweight said. Brian Hirshberg of Proliance Energy, a natural gas marketer, gave commissioners a brief update on the natural gas market. He advised the commissioners made a good decision last fall by locking in the county’s needs at 65 percent. The volatility in the market coupled with the

cold winter drove prices up. Hirshberg will continue to monitor the market trends and deliver updates throughout the summer. He will watch for a decrease in the summer and early fall months in order to advise the commissioners on the next time to lock in prices at the lowest possible rate. Commissioners renewed a 12-month contract with Proliance that will begin April 1 and end in March 2015. In other business, commissioners agreed to table the discussion on the proposed Innkeeper’s tax until the next meeting scheduled March 18. President Carl Schmitz did not have time to review the information. A new six-month lease on the

building the Community Corrections program uses was approved. A request to replace smoke detectors in the dispatch building was approved at a cost of $5,120. The smoke detectors have been malfunctioning and going off simultaneously and staff members are unable to ascertain which unit is causing the problem. The old models will be removed and replaced with new ones that meet state standards. The animal control report for February included 51 complaints, 15 animals were picked up and $20 was collected. The next meeting will be Tuesday, March 18, at 9 a.m. in the Hovey House in Mount Vernon.

hose reel. It is good for blockages and root cuttings in sewers and could get into subdivisions where the big truck cannot fit. It was agreed that Steve Fuelling and Sewer Superintendent Rodney Givens would meet to look at finances and report back at the next meeting. Parsley will send them a new bid if both the truck and trailer jet are purchased together. Board members thought it might be best though to purchase the truck first, then a trailer jet as another ‘useful tool in the toolbox.’ In the meantime the old truck will be driven back to Mount Vernon for use in everything but vacuuming to save money. Givens had to use Evansville equipment this past weekend to handle SSO’s (sanitary sewer overflows) and it cost thousands of dollars. “I need it back now.” Givens said emphatically. In other truck news, Street Superintendent Max Dieterle reported that the new packer truck is in town and ready for lettering and radio installation tomorrow. In other board action: • Mayor John Tucker told the board that engineering firm Bernard, Lochmueller and Associates did a presentation on the East Side Sewer Project to a filled house Tuesday night. Businesses involved in the project attended to find out what it will cost them. It was agreed that most businesses are in favor of the gravity flow system, but each business may have different costs due to their individual needs. Givens will start visitations with them on Monday to assess needs and do measurements. The board requested that BLA look into whether SRF funds can be used for this as they will not approve it until they know about the funds. • Givens was granted approval to use the city credit card at AT & T to purchase a modem to set up the 911 alarm notification system at the sewer plant when engineer Mike Russell of Franks Engineering comes down to do it. . • A low bid of $68,502 was accepted from Hinterliner to start on the police and fire safety building. Mel Levin, the Clerk of the Works, will be notified to start it all up. • Winter Maynard appeared before the board to give them a route outline for the Healthy Communities Partnership race on Saturday March 8 at 2 p.m. with the mayor of LaPorte. • Dave Campbell discussed work change orders for the Birdland sewer reline project which will be completed soon. Twenty top hats were approved for lateral lines to improve flow at a cost of $54,000.

INDOT considers light removal, common council divided By Lois Mittino Gray Should the stoplight at Fourth Street (Indiana 62) and Walnut Street in Mount Vernon be removed by the Indiana Department of Transportation? This question was posed to the Mount Vernon Common Council by Mayor John Tucker at its March 6 meeting. Tucker explained that he received a letter from INDOT on January 31 stating that the agency felt the light should not be there. By today’s standards, it would not meet the criteria for putting one in at the location. The mayor polled council members to get feedback to report back to INDOT but warned, “The bottom line is that it is a state highway and our decision may not matter.

They are going to do what they want to do, as budgets are tight and removal will save them money.” All five council members discussed the pros and cons of removal. Councilman Andy Hoehn spoke first in favor of removing the light as it causes traffic backup in that spot. “It already is a problem. With more traffic coming to town due to Midwest Fertilizer, that will be a traffic nightmare. It was a bad idea from day one.” Councilman Brian Jeffries spoke in favor of keeping the light for several reasons. “If it is removed, traffic coming from the Coliseum and Post Office, especially before 2 p.m., will back up going north trying to turn left onto Fourth

Street. They will get on each other’s tails and it may increase accidents. Right now the intersection is controlled and there are few accidents there. Lastly, that is one of only two protected pedestrian crosswalks across the state highway and I hate to lose it.” Councilman Bill Curtis agreed that he would piggyback Jeffries’ remarks but added, “It would be great if we could get the light to operate in the mornings from 6:30-8:30 a.m. and then in the late afternoon, with it becoming a flashing yellow at the other times.” After talking with many local people, Councilman Steve Fuelling said his first opinion was to get rid of the light, but he could also see the reasons

for keeping it. “I think there is less accidents at that intersection because people avoid it. This may all be moot to discuss it. I think if INDOT wants to take it out, they will anyway.” Councilwoman Becky Higgins agreed that the light is helpful to turn west going out of town on 62. She would accept its removal though if INDOT could add a left turn arrow to the light already at Fourth and Main Streets. “We need something to help people get out of town quickly heading west, especially around 3:30-4:30 p.m. The arrow and its timing are already in place turning east at that site.” She also asked Police Chief Grant Beloat for his opinion on the light removal. He agreed

with Jeffries and Curtis to leave it be as ‘once it’s gone it’s hard to get back. If it is removed, there will only be one protected pedestrian crosswalk across the state highway.’ Beloat said he did an accident study of the intersection and the rate is considered moderate. There were four accidents in 2008 and 2009, three in each year from 2010-12 and one last year in 2013. Tucker will report the opinions back to INDOT, but Fuelling quipped, “If they take it down, they better do it in the middle of the night.” The letter from INDOT also stated that it will take action to alleviate traffic on the west side of town near Lakeview by widening passing lanes and reducing speed limit. In other council action: • passed ordinance 14.4 adopting additional appropriations in the EDIT ( Economic Development Income Tax) fund. After Mayor Tucker held a public hearing with no public comment, ordinance 14.5 was passed adding refund monies from Anthem Insurance Com-

pany into the COIT fund. • City workers were praised for their efforts keeping streets clean during this frigid weather. Street Commissioner Max Dieterle said the salt supply is still holding out well. • Fuelling reported that the sewer relining project in the Birdland subdivision was almost complete, with Layne Inliner being an ‘extremely professional, impressive’ company. • Acting as the Water Utility Board, Water Department Superintendent Chuck Gray was given permission to adjust Edward Clark’s water bill of over $2,000 for his home at 638 E. Water Street. His pipes burst and he must bring the proof of repair of the pipe to Gray. • Gray wants the public to know that running even a quarter inch trickle of water during frigid weather to keep pipes from bursting is not very prudent. “I am seeing some large usage numbers and big bills. Even a trickle can result in 300,000 gallons a month used. It may be cheaper to pay a plumber for that burst pipe.”

A monthly feature focusing on some of the best tasting food in Posey County

SILVERWOOD RESTAURANT AND GIFTS 533 W 4th Street • Mount Vernon , Ind . • 812-838-4501

When one door closed for Tiffani Clark, she grabbed at the opportunity to open another, and doesn’t have any thoughts of slowing down. She and her family, husband Tracy, along with her three daughters, Morgan, Bray and Emma, opened the doors of the Silverwood Restaurant on Friday, September 13, 2013. “I’m a little superstitious,” she said, “So I kind’ve worried about opening on that day, but am glad I did because it has all seemed to work out very well.” As sole owner of the restaurant with only seven employees, you will find Tiffani wearing many hats including cooking and waitressing, but her goal is to be able to spend her time out with her customers who as she puts it, ‘are the people who support this place and keep it going.’ Although she keeps herself so busy that she can barely take a moment to rest, she doesn’t really feel like its work at all. “If you do something you love, you won’t ever work a day in your life,” she remarked. With many high school friends working alongside of her, and many others popping in for one of the terrific lunch specials or Chicken and Dumplings, her bestselling dish by far, she says ‘it’s like a class reunion in here every day.’ One of her normal customers, Chris Kaufman, laughed as he shared, “You just can’t joke around in a lot of places like you can here.” Opening a new eatery in Mount Vernon isn’t an easy thing to do, and Tiffani says she has had many people asking her why she would want to invest her money in this small local town. To that she has a simple answer, “If I don’t do it, who will? Someone needs to.” She grew up in Mount Vernon and loves the people here. She wants people to be able to come in the door and feel welcomed and comfortable, to know that they are receiving quality food and service and to realize that her establishment is a benefit to the community. “The idea of ‘from the farm to the table’ is the best,” she says, and with her decision to use food from local businesses such as Uebelhack’s Turkey Farm, Farview Orchard and the many individuals selling their produce at the local Farmer’s Markets, it should be easy for anyone to see that she is here to help support Posey County.

‘Food for Thought ’ Being a small business owner, you always have to be prepared to make changes or improvements to suit the needs of your customers, and Tiffani already has that covered. With plans to reorganize the gift shop, provide picnic tables for outside seating in warmer weather, offer cooking classes, promote fundraisers and allow those technology savvy folks to sign up for Pinterest Parties, she will be well on her way to having a little something for everyone. Providing more parking is top of her priority list as well, and although many people don’t take kind to words of wisdom or advice from others, she has said, “I love feedback from my customers, it is very important for them to know that if there is anything they would like me to know, I want them to share it with me.” The restaurant is open Monday through Friday from 5 a.m. – 8 p.m., and delivers to businesses with a minimum $20 order from 10:30 a.m. - 2 p.m. They are currently closed on weekends. Zach: “Posey County isn’t known for it’s selection of sub sandwiches, but I’ll tell you, ‘Silverwood has you covered.’ The Rustic Pork Sandwich is one of the best

tasting subs I’ve tasted anywhere. With pulled pork roast smothered in au jus and covered in melted provolone, it was nicely different than the usual sandwich selection in our area. I’m a huge fan of gourmet subs and I’m personally looking forward to going back and trying their other selections, like Reuben, Capresse, and Chicken Bacon Ranch on their specialty breads.” Michelle: “I love to get a ‘good deal’ when it comes to eating, but unfortunately my waistline has paid the price for that. We always want more for our buck. As I get older I realize I just can’t eat the same as I used to and expect the same metabolism just isn’t the same. Many of our local establishments don’t offer ‘smaller’ portions or healthier choices that I like, but as soon as I mentioned my problem to Krista, she immediately let me

know that they had many different options, and not only that, they would do their best to accommodate my specific needs. Although I wanted to try one of the many other delicious looking meals, I committed to a half Capresse Sandwich, which was piping hot full of fresh mozzarella, tomato and basil, and a bowl of Vegetable Soup, and was very glad I did. It was perfect.” Theresa: “Once again, I choose the Chef Salad. It was amazing. With it being ‘made to order’ rather than pre-made, I was able to choose the ingredients that I like instead of picking off the things I don’t like. And don’t let the picture fool you, it was humongous. The staff was polite, attentive, and timely. The atmosphere was one of general happiness. Nothing beats eating at a place where people truly enjoy their jobs.”

Vikings earn season-ending split in sectional play By Dave Pearce The North Posey Vikings finished in opposite positions at the end of two very similar games at the Class 2A Boonville Sectional basketball tournament this week. In the tournament opener, the Vikings faced off against Tell City, a team they had beaten by 30 less than a week ago. But in the Indiana High School basketball tournament, almost anything can happen. The Vikings built a big lead and then held on to defeat the Marksmen 70-58. The win meant the Vikings would move on to Friday night action against defending sectional champion Perry Central while the Marksmen would go home. Then on Friday night, the Vikings faced a team that had beaten them soundly by 18 points during the regular season. But this was unlike the first one. This time, the Vikings fell behind but never gave up. As a matter of fact, they cut the lead to four points late in the game and actually had two chances to cut the lead even further before the Vikings were forced to foul and put the sharp-shooting Commodores on the line. The final outcome of that contest was 58-51. Viking fans saw the last games for eight senior players in Drake Davenport, Michael Bender, Griffin Motz, Zack Carl, Jacob Brenton, Reed Gerteisen, Cody Ungetheim, and Tyler Adkins. Also graduating will be longtime manager Jared Tepool. Several players, particularly seniors, had words of wisdom to impart following the game. Perhaps Cody Ungetheim summed it up best when he spoke with other members of the team. “It seems like it was not very long ago at

all when we were in the second grade and playing in that tournament in Princeton,” Ungetheim told the team. We got second place and got those little trophies. And now here we are at this point.” Coach Heath Howington was emotional following the game, as well, as he talked to the team about high school sports and their purpose. They build character and give you memories that you will hold onto for a lifetime, Howington summarized. “If I ever had to go into battle, I would want this group behind me,” he said to his team. This game against Tell City was nothing like the first time the teams met. This time the game looked more like a slugfest at times than a basketball game. Between the two teams, there were 12 fouls called in the first quarter alone and nearly 20 in the first half. There were 43 fouls called in the contest. North Posey jumped out to a 15-9 lead at the end of the first period. Gerteisen found Ungetheim for the team’s first field goal of the second period and with the defense forcing multiple Marksmen turnovers, James Marshall’s 10-footer doubled the score on the Markmen at 20-10 at the 6:23 mark of the second period. But Tell City’s 6-foot-3 senior center Brennan Malone kept his team in the contest with 10 points and five rebounds in the half. For the Vikings, they were able to maintain a lead as large as 12 points before the final bucket of the half pulled the Marksmen to within 29-21 at the half. The team continued to maintain a lead in their third period as an Ungetheim bucket North Posey junior James Marshall takes the ball to the basket with determination. Photo by Dave Pearce

Bosse’s defense, quickness too much for Wildcats The same is true in sports as it is in life and this week the Mount Vernon Wildcat basketball team had it’s season come to an abrupt

end at the hand of the Bosse Bulldogs in the sectional semi-final match up. Mount Vernon played much better than the first time these two teams met up but the ending was the same as Bosse outshot and outscored Mount Vernon to a 76-61 victory Friday night in Princeton. For Wildcat coach Marc Hostetter the finality of the ending of this season was harder than he might have imagined. “You’re never prepared for the end of the season,” Hostetter said after the game. “You never think the end is coming when you are in the fight and now that it’s over I feel just pride. The things you don’t measure, the determination, the fight, the passion, were all there tonight and I am very proud of that. There were times this season we were not sure we had those immeasurables but tonight they were all there. This has been a fun group to coach this year and I am going to miss the seniors. I just can’t say enough about those guys.” The game opened with the two teams battling for the lead. Bosse opened the contest by scoring the first four points of the game, something they would do in the opening of the first three periods of the contest Friday night. Senior Wildcat Bryce Newman wanted to make sure the game did not get out of hand and was able to produce off a turnover and get the three point play to make the game 4-3 early on. Colton Irvin scored the next four points for the Wildcats to keep the score close at 8-7 midway through the first period before Newman hit a pair of jumpers to end the WildSenior Bryce Newman dribbles around the Bosse defender in Friday night’s sec- cat scoring in the opening period of play.

Bosse turned up their defensive pressure in the second period causing several turnovers that led to points in the opening minutes of the second period. And while Newman and Irvin have been looked to often to produce points for the Cats, the team needed someone else to

step up and score when Bosse put their sites on the pair. It was Sophomore Damon Collins that stepped up and filled that roll Friday. Collins hit a big three pointer to pull Mount Vernon within four in the opening of the second period at 18-14 and later kept it close with a step back jumper to keep the Cats close at 2316. Bosse would use their defensive pressure in the second period and go on some important runs to eventually take a 32-23 lead at the half. And while the third period has been a struggle for Mount Vernon a big portion of the season, Friday night the Cats used it as a springboard to outscore Bosse to get back into the contest. Mount Vernon found some all important inside points from Zach French and Colton Irvin and when Irvin found himself all alone behind the three point line he took the shot to pull Mount Vernon within seven points at 53-44. Newman’s buzzer beater at the end of the third period put Mount Vernon back in the game on the scoreboard with confidence trailing 54-46 heading into the final period of play. The Wildcats would try to make one last run in the fourth period but could not stop Bosse defensively. Eventually it was the Bulldogs who hung on and hit free throws to ensure the victory at 76-61 ending Mount Vernon’s season and sectional hopes. The Wildcats were led in scoring Friday by their two seniors Bryce Newman and Colton Irvin. Newman had 26 points in his final High School game while Irvin added 17 for Mount Vernon. Sophomore Damon Collins had 12 points to round out the Wildcat scoring. The Wildcats end their season with an overall record of 8-15. The team loses their five seniors, Bryce Newman, Colton Irvin, Taylor Vaughn, Levi Shannon, and Justin Rutledge as they look to the future. These five should be proud of their accomplishments for the program over the last four years as they have added a lot and left a trail of crumbs to follow.

Defending champ Commodores have too many weapons quick move and pulled the team to within eight at 4941. Martin then came up with a steal off the manto-man trapping full court pressure and his lay-up pulled the Vikings to within six at 3:13. The crowd was on its feet when Gerteisen came up with yet another steal off the pressure and laid the ball in to make the score 49-45 with 2:29 remaining. The Commodores missed a rare free throw on the front end of a one-and-one but the Vikings were unable to convert. Perry Central then gave the Vikes a taste of their own medicine as they came up with a steal and a bucket to expand their lead back to six.

Support system helps Frye complete swim career By Steven Kochersperger When Elizabeth Frye graduated from Mount Vernon High School four years ago she had no idea how her choices would ripple throughout her life and future. Her days as a high school swimmer had come and gone and she made the decision to move to Cleveland, Miss., to swim at Delta State University. That decision changed her forever, for the good. And as she now stands just months away from her college graduation she looks back with gratitude and thankfulness for everything that has happened. “Choosing to come to Delta State to swim and go to school was one of the best decisions that I have ever made,” Frye said. “It was definitely a tough transition, leaving my family and town that I have grown up in. But I have loved getting to know southern culture and have learned so much about myself from the past four years living here.” The transition from high school student to college athlete is never an easy one for any eighteen year old. But Frye learned early that placing priorities in the correct places helps make the transition smoother. Frye’s freshman year the university hired a new swim coach, Dan’l Murray, adding more to the transition. But Murray became a great influence in her life and swim career, turning around a swim program that needed a fresh face to inject a winning tradition. Over the past four years the team at Delta State went from getting beat in almost every meet they competed in to becoming a winning program that is now on the victorious side of duel meets almost every time they hit the water. For Frye this is something that has been exciting to be apart of and something to take pride in. “This year we had fifteen people going to nationals in Ohio, that’s the largest team we have ever taken in Delta State University history. I couldn’t have ended a fabulous four years here, and of my 17 year swimming career, any better. Over these past four

years I have learned not to be afraid to step up to challenges.” Frye is not only proud of her team accomplishments but has also gained recognition as a great individual swimmer in college. She was named team captain at the beginning of her senior season and made the Academic Team for the past three years at Delta State. “I was so blessed to work with and lead this team this past year,” Frye said. “They all have a piece of my heart.” Her upbeat and positive attitude is something that will carry Frye far in life after graduation as well. Frye will graduate in May with a degree in Elementary education and wants to continue living in the south teaching and showing kids they can accomplish anything they put their minds too just like she has done at Delta State. Frye is proud of her roots and remembers being a part of Mount Vernon swimming with fondness. From her times swimming as a child at Western Hills Country Club to her early morning practices in High School, Frye will always keep what she has learned from her time at Mount Vernon and carry it with her. Frye now looks to an unknown future the same way she did four years ago, this time knowing that all she went through in Mississippi will help her grow into a productive member of whatever town and workplace she lands in. She is thankful for her years and all her family has done for her as well. “I would have never been at Delta State if it wasn’t for the encouragement from my parents,” Frye said. “I am so thankful they helped me make the decision of swimming in college. It was something that I never thought that I would be able to do. They have helped me so much throughout the years. They’ve been timers, concession stand workers, made meals, driven me to practices and meets, brought me countless swimsuits, goggles, and caps, and have

Former Viking Alyssa Like helps team into NCAA By Dave Pearce At 9 p.m. on Sunday evening, North Posey High School graduate Alyssa Like still was not sure if she had played her final collegiate basketball game. But just a few minutes later, word came in and the 5-foot-7 all-around player for the University of Missouri-St. Louis will be making her first trip to the NCAA tournament in her storied basketball career. But earlier in the day, Like was as much in the mood to talk about life and its lessons as she was to talk about herself and her accomplishments, both on and off the basketball court. The daughter of Kenny Like and Darrell and Tammy Graves, Like was a firstteam all PAC selection at North Posey High School. Although not really looking at playing basketball beyond high school, once basketball season was over her senior year, she knew she was not ready to quit playing the game she loved and had grown up playing. “I just didn’t want to give it up yet,” Like said. “And when you have an opportunity, it’s not something you want to waste.” So when she was contacted by Olney Central College in Southern Illinois and offered the opportunity to step in and play at the college level, Like jumped at the opportunity. And a good jump it was. In her first season at Olney Central, she was named to the all Great Rivers Athletic Conference team as well as the All Region team. Under her first-year new head coach Clint Burris, her Olney Central team went 11-19.

where I had been talking to the coaches and knew a little bit more about the programs, but since my brother was attending Murray and it was a lot closer to home, I decided to go ahead and do it.” But while it was not one of the best years of her basketball life, it was a good lesson in life. “I don’t regret it but I learned not to just jump into something before you jump in with both feet,” Like said. “But playing against players like I played with at Murray was a lot different than the players I had played with and against at Olney. The opportunity I got at Murray was like something I had looked forward to all my life, playing Division I basketball. But there was a lot of travel and you are with your teammates 24-7.” Looking back, Like said she would love to have had a four-year shot at playing Division I basketball but with only one year of eligibility remaining, she chose to join one of her Olney Central friends and teammates on the UMSL team. “She was always talking about how I should come there next year and at first, it was like a joke between us,” Like explained. “But she served as the relay person between me and her coach. They were going to need a point guard and I wanted to go someplace I could play and be close enough to home that my family could come and watch me play.” In her only season at UMSL, the team has achieved success to the tune of a 21-7, now with an opportunity to play in the NCAA tournament. For just the second time

And while majoring in biology (with a chemistry minor) at the school on full scholarship, the former Viking star worked on her game over the summer. The next season saw her team win 19 games and watched as the individual and team honors poured in. The slightly-built 5-foot7 left-handed guard was named to the All GRAC Conference team as well as to the All Region team again. She was named the Player of the Year and was a third team All-American at the school. She earned a spot on the All-Tournament team, as well. Her team finished second in the conference tournament after defeating No. 1-seeded Wabash Valley on their way to the title game. Her statistics were impressive at Wabash Valley. She hit 47 percent of her field goals and shot 44 percent from behind the 3-point arc. She did this while handing out four assists per game along with six rebounds and 3.5 steals per game. She averaged 17 points per game. Her play caught the eye of Murray State Head Coach Rob Cross. Like knew that she wanted to continue to play while she continued to study and when Cross offered her an opportunity to become a part of the Murray State Racers and NCAA Division I basketball, she didn’t think twice. But perhaps she should have. “The head coach at Murray called the head coach at Olney and he said he had been looking at another girl at a tournament when he saw me there,” Like said. “I had a couple other offers

Like, from Page B4 lis at the Ford Center in Evansville on Friday but it certainly was not for lack of effort. Like poured in a season-high 21 points hitting 7-of-14 field goals including 6-of10 3-point shots. She had three rebounds and three assists. She has averaged nearly 34 minutes a game this season along with 11 points, five rebounds, three assists, while shooting 44 percent from the field and 42 percent from long range. Like indicates that basketball and college force you to grow up and make decisions. Should Like’s team advance to the Elite Eight, it is possible she could meet

a former teammate. North Posey graduate Nichole Perry’s University of Charleston team will also be in the field of 64 teams. The Charleston women’s basketball team is headed to the NCAA Division II Tournament for the first time since 2011.

The Golden Eagles are the number seven seed in the Atlantic Region and will face second-seed Edinboro on Friday, March 14. Perry’s team is 21-8.

Bill to help address Meth problem passes the Senate House Bill (HB) 1141 dealing with properties that have been affected by methamphetamine and authored by State Representative Wendy McNamara (R-Mount Vernon), passed through the Senate unanimously. “I am incredibly excited to see this bill round the final stretch of the legislative process,” said Rep. McNamara. “This piece of legislation is critical to informing the public and providing them with additional knowledge about meth, which continues to be a menace in our communities across Indiana.” HB 1141 will provide transparency for the public to know whether or not a home has been the site where methamphetamine was either manufactured or dumped. This information will be available to the Indiana State Police, instead of the Criminal Justice Institute, regarding all prop-

erties that have been in contact with meth, even those that are already taken off of the public list. Buyer’s will be able to see within the buyer’s agreement or realtor’s statement, if a home has a history with meth and whether or not that property has been properly decontaminated. This piece of legislation looks to increase the health and safety of Indiana communities as well as increase cooperation and collaboration between state agencies. HB 1141 aims to increase property values by ridding communities of blighted homes and encourage renovations and decontamination of properties affected by meth. “This piece of legislation will help ease the burdens on communities and build stronger neighborhoods. Hopefully the transparency this bill provides will bring some peace of mind to home buyers and community members,” said Rep. McNamara.

Tinseltown Talks: Stuart Whitman, an A-class actor By Nick Thomas You won’t see Stuart Whitman’s name listed in the closing credits for the 1951 sci-fi classic, “The Day the Earth Stood Still.” But he’s there, if only for a few seconds, in an uncredited role as one of the sentries guarding an alien spaceship. Such was the humble beginning of many young actors in the 50s, appearing anonymously in bit parts hoping ultimately to be “discovered.” It took about a decade, but critics and audiences eventually noticed the handsome, dark-haired Whitman. While waiting for that big break, young Stuart bought and hired out a bulldozer, to help pay the bills. But it wasn’t an entirely odd employment choice.

“My dad was a real estate developer, and I helped him out before I was put under contract with Universal Studios,” he said from his home in Santa Barbara. His patience and perseverance paid off with a Best Actor Oscar nomination for his performance in the 1961 film, “The Mark.” Shot in Ireland with co-star Rod Steiger, it was a controversial film for the time, with Whitman playing a recovering sex offender. “I was living in North Hollywood and heard the nomination on the radio while driving. I was shocked and almost crashed the car,” he recalled. He didn’t win, quite likely because the film’s sensitive theme turned off some Academy voters. He was also up against stiff com-

Stuart Whitman and John Wayne still from The Comancheros (1961). Photo submitted petition that year including Spencer Tracy, Paul Newman, and Charles Boyer. The award went to Maximilian Schell in “Judgment at Nuremberg.” Whitman’s charm and charisma made him a natu-

ral for western roles including the short-lived but popular TV series, “The Cimarron Strip” in 1967, and films such as “The Comancheros” co-starring with John Wayne in 1961. “Director Michael Cur-

tiz wanted me for the part of Paul Regret in the film, but said it had already been cast. He suggested I go talk to Wayne,” said Whitman. “I found him on the Paramount lot coming out of his trailer. I’d never met him before, but walked right up to him and spent 20 minutes pitching for the part. Finally he said ‘Okay kid, you’ve got it.’ That’s the kind of power John Wayne had!” Whitman’s most wellknown film is probably “Those Magnificent Men in Their Flying Machines” in 1965. “That was the first big money I made in a movie – $300,000,” he said. Money, however, was never an issue for much of his later career. From his

humble bulldozing beginnings, Whitman went on to make millions from real estate investments. “I didn’t need to act to make a living, but had a real passion for it – I just loved to act.” After some 200 film and TV roles, Whitman, who turned 86 in February, retired to his 30-acre California ranch. “I’ve lived there for 45 years, in between the mountains and the ocean. It’s a beautiful spot.” In 2006, he married his third wife, Julia, a Russian. The two met when Whitman traveled to St. Petersburg to be best man at a friends’ wedding. “After returning to the US, I got a phone call from her saying she was in Pasadena and could we meet,” he said. “I’m sure glad I said ‘absolutely!’”
