Two face major sentences on drug convictions By Dave Pearce On July 25, 2013, in Posey County Circuit Court, Christopher Trafford, pled guilty to two (2) counts of Dealing in Methamphetamine as Class A Felonies and was sentenced to 20 years in prison. Trafford faced up to 50 years in prison on each count and the plea agreement was open-ended allowing the Prosecutor and the defense attorney to argue for the appropriate sentence, with the Judge having the final determination. Trafford’s arrest stemmed from a longterm drug investigation called ‘Operation Fair Warning’ which culminated in the arrest of over 30 individuals for illegal drug activity. The operation was conducted by the Posey County Narcotics Unit, supervised by Kenneth Rose, who is an investigator with

amphetamine on two separate occasions to a confidential informant, with one transaction taking place within 1,000 feet of Saint Matthew’s Elementary School. Prosecutor Travis

Clowers argued for a long term of imprisonment, citing the seriousness of methamphetamine offenses and stating that “no parent or child in Posey County should have to worry about drugs being sold near an elementary school.” The Honorable Judge Redwine weighed the youth of Trafford with the seriousness of the offense and imposed a prison term of 20 years. Travis Clowers, Posey County Prosecutor, stated that he was ‘pleased’ with the sentence and praised the Posey County Narcotics Unit for an ‘excellent investigation.’ Clowers added that “this is another example of the effectiveness of the undercover operations we are conducting. We are taking drug dealers off the streets.”

On July 23, 2013, in the Posey County Superior Court, 54-year-old Rex R. Baker, pled guilty to two counts of Dealing in Methamphetamine as Class B Felonies, and to Manufacturing Methamphetamine as a Class B Felony and was sentenced to 15 years in prison. Baker’s arrest stemmed from his delivering Methamphetamine to a Confidential Informant working with the Posey County Narcotic’s Unit on two separate occasions on February 28, 2013. On June 3, 2013, a warrant for Baker’s arrest was issued in Posey County Superior Court charging him with Count 1: Dealing in Methamphetamine, a Class A Felony; and Count 2: Dealing in

Davis is 31st Hagemann Award winner Posey County schools set to open on August 13

Special to the News Four talented young ladies from Posey County competed Wednesday evening, July 24, for the Hagemann Award for Musical Performance. The event, free and open to the public, was held at Thrall’s Opera House in New Harmony under the auspices of Historic New Harmony. It was the 31st year of the competition, which was founded by Philip Hagemann to provide an opportunity to recognize and reward accomplished young local musicians. Hagemann is a composer/ conductor originally from Mount Vernon who lives in New York City. The winner this year was Melanie A. Davis, a mezzosoprano who recently completed her junior year at Mount Vernon Senior High School. She is the daughter of Diane and Michael Davis. Her accompanist was Teresa Bloodworth and her teacher is Shay Barnett. Miss Davis sang a varied program that included songs in Italian and German and excerpts from Handel’s ‘Messiah’ and Sondheim’s ‘Follies.’ The other finalists were

By Lois Mittino Gray Mount Vernon Board of Public Works member Steve Fuelling stated at the July 25 meeting that curbs and sidewalks in the Water Street area around the new parts of the riverfront need to get on the ‘front burner.’ The city has done extensive renovation at the riverfront and finishing it off with proper curbs and sidewalks will enhance its beauty. Board member Bill Curtis agreed and asked Street Commissioner Max Dieterle to get some prices together for the north side of Water Street. He asked the commissioner to talk with Myzak Palmer as well as they are doHagemann Award winner Melanie Davis is pictured with New York composer Larry ing the work on The Landing Hagemann, sponsor of the annual Posey County contest.

By Lois Mittino Gray “It will be here before we know it,” announced Mount Vernon School Board President Kathy Weinzapfel at the start of the Board’s July 22 meeting. She was referring to the imminent start of school for teachers on August 12 and students on August 13. The buildings are open right now in preparation and the bookstore opens August 1. Nicholas Grant Jones will be a new face at school this year as the Board hired him to be Band Director at the Senior High School and Assistant in Instrumental Music at the Junior High. Jones served as a music teacher in Hopkins County, Kentucky for the past two years. Timothy R. Alcorn and Warren Walker were hired as Assistant Football Coaches at the Junior High School. Not returning next school year is Family and Consumer Science Teacher and Cheerleader Sponsor Mary Jackson and food service worker Nikki Schneider whose resignations were accepted by the Board. A new student transfer policy is being fine tuned for this school year in accordance with recent state legislation HEA 1381. Each Indiana district must set a total student capacity for each grade level and publish on the school web site and with the state what the last date is that student transfers may be received for the semester. Mount Vernon set the student capacity at 240 per grade level and January 14, 2014 as the last date to transfer into the second semester that year. If there are more transfer requests than the designated capacity, the remaining places will be selected in a public lottery at a school board meeting. Applicants must be eligible Indiana residents who are asking to transfer

City Council opts for pedestrian crosswalk in Mount Vernon By Lois Mitino-Gray What appeared to be at first a simple reading of a stop sign ordinance turned into a lively discussion on modern pedestrian crosswalks at the July 25 Mount Vernon Common Council Meeting. Discussion on an ordinance to create a three way stop at Locust and Water streets resulted in a split vote with three “no” votes to one “yes” by Councilwoman Becky Higgins. Council members propose to use a modern pedestrian crosswalk instead. The discussion focused on whether there was enough pedestrian traffic to make the in-

ThePCN

tersection a three way stop. Council members discussed the use of pedestrian crosswalks based on travel experiences in other cities. Councilman Bill Curtis noted a downtown area in Canton, Ga., he was in recently had signs in the middle of the street indicating “Stop for Pedestrians In Crosswalk”. People entering the crosswalk had the right-of-way and it worked well. Councilman Andy Hoehn said he was just in St. Augustine and they also have these signs in the middle of the street. “They seem very effective and folks stop way ahead of the sign in fact,” he explained. In both examples, stiff fines

are incurred for not stopping. Councilwoman Beth Higgins said they were thinking that a highlighted pedestrian walkway using reflective markings might be a better fit for that location with fines imposed for not stopping. She stated her thought behind the stop sign is that people would stop and look forward before proceeding, but then they may just speed back up again when they leave the intersection. Higgins asked Police Chief Grant Beloat his opinion on the issue and he said he was fine with the three way stop sign, but if they wanted to try something new that was okay, too.

Councilman Steve Fuelling felt it is a new progressive way of protecting people and he would like to try it. Locally, USI uses them all over campus. If it doesn’t work out, the Council could always pass an ordinance to create the three way stop later. If they do end up needing a Stop sign, he suggests Mulberry and Water is a better location. He added they can try this down there and maybe expand it to Harriet Street in the school zones. Council members agreed to vote down the

Former Mount Vernon athlete receives joy from giving back This past weekend was an action-packed one for Jace Redman, The action began early Saturday morning with the Miles for Mount Vernon Athletes event, lasted deep into Saturday night, and ended Sunday afternoon when his team lost their battle for the top spot at the Jason Stevens Memorial Softball Tournament. When asked, with a smile on his face Jace replied, “It’s been a great weekend. We didn’t start out planning the two events on the same weekend, but it really worked out well for everyone involved in each one. People that came for one event got to participate in the other with some calling it a semi-reunion weekend.” Jace, the 26-year-old son of Gary and Geralyn Redman, graduated from Mount Vernon Senior High School in 2005 and has been active in tennis, baseball, and basketball from an early age. Since graduating from USI in 2011 with a MMA in accounting he has become heavily involved in running. That,

Brittany and Jace Redman

coupled with the desire to give back to the athletic programs that supported him during his school years, led to the idea of Miles for Mount Vernon Athletics. “I came up with the concept last spring. My wife’s sister, in seventh grade at the time, was a member of the track team and when we would go to the meets I’d notice how a lot of the uniforms looked as if they’d been in the system quite a while,” states Jace. “They were looking pretty old, and that got me to thinking about how there was probably not much money in the budget for those and how there was room for somebody to step in and do something to raise money in order to help out not only the schools, but the individual teams with that.” Seeing that need and having the knowledge, through his dad who is the Athletic Director at MVSHS, that Expressway was looking to become part of a major event, Jace sold the idea to them and the Inaugural run/walk was held in August of 2011. Last years’ event was put together in a matter of six to eight weeks with much of the work being done by Jace, his wife of two years Brittany (Green), and their parents. Jace recalls how it was a little crazy and some things didn’t get done exactly right, but it was a good experience, they learned from it, and raised nearly $7,000. Having more time to organize this year’s event, they were able to gather close to 40 volunteers including the Dance Cats along with their coaches. “They were such a big help. They manned the most centrally located water station for us, which meant they saw everyone at least twice,” Jace shares. “We had a lot of coaches, teachers, and school personnel that my parents were instrumental in rounding-up to help this year also. Although it was a wet one I believe everyone enjoyed the event this year. I know the kids especially enjoyed splashing and playing in the rain puddles.” About 375 participants were involved in the 2011 event. Between the pre-registrations and those they expected to signup the day of the event it looked as if this year would bring

far more, however, with the steady rainfall early Saturday morning they were happy to have the same number of participants this year. A majority of the runners are from the local area, however, the male winner this year was a visitor from New York. Although they don’t have a final total yet, he’s guessing the amount raised this year will be between $8,000$8,500. As previously stated, Expressway is the event’s corporate sponsor, but this year Jace and his team offered local businesses the opportunity to get involved in sponsorship for the event. For a small amount, they could have their logo/ information printed on the back of the t-shirts given to each participant, or they could donate items for the ‘goody’ bags given out. “That was a huge success. We brought in $1,200 just through their sponsorship.” Jace has already set his sights on August 2014 by trying to figure out the timing for that event. He shares, “It’s hard to find just the right time between all the summer team sports winding down, people trying to squeeze in their end of summer vacations, and the school year sports just beginning, but we believe we have a date for next year that will work for everyone. We’re going to keep it going as long as we can get the support and participation needed to make it work.” Money from events is donated to several different athletic teams each year. “We choose a few teams each year and ask them for their wish list, whether it be uniforms, travel bags or a piece of equipment, and try to divide the money so those needs are met.” According to Jace, “Right now it’s just junior high and high school. Last year, since they hadn’t had one for several years, the junior high purchased a new bobcat mascot uniform. We’re going to take it a year at a time and try to rotate the team donations as best as we can.” Although Jace resides in Henderson where Brittany is a fourth grade teacher, and works at the accounting firm SS&C Technologies located on Main Street in Evansville, his heart will always be connected to the athletes of Mount Vernon.

Class C felony battery, as well as one count of leaving the scene of an accident causing injury, a Class D felony. Rhodes also had two outstanding warrants for his arrests from Posey and Vanderburgh counties. The Mount Vernon Police Department was assisted in the investigation by the Posey County Sheriff’s Department and the Indiana State Police.

‘crosswalk’ continued from Page A1 stop sign ordinance at this time and try a new approach with crosswalks. Attorney Beth McFaddin Higgins will look over the issue of fines associated with not stopping and see if that would require an ordinance. In other Council action: --Dave Edmonson, vice president of Gaither Technologies STC in Evansville appeared before the Coun-

cil to answer questions and explain the technology behind the new city phone system. They discussed use of an intercom system between departments, Internet calling technology and whether it was cost-effective to get it before moving into the new police-fire station. The Council voted to get the system for City Hall and City Hall Annex (police-fire) for $26,284.73.

‘riverfront curbs’ continued from Page A1 company representative down to look at the situation as well as to put together a spare parts list. The Board gave approval for Givens to contact a person. He estimates it will cost $1,200 for an eight hour day, including travel time. Board member Steve Fuelling asked if local farmers are still coming out and taking the sludge and Givens replied yes. --Fire Chief Wes Dixon presented a $14,133 quote for three new airpacs from Five Alarm in Wisconsin. Money for these is allotted in this year’s budget and the style is exactly the same as those in current use, so it was readily approved. --Dieterle said the city tree trimming project is almost complete after a few setbacks with a pesky beehive. Trees are also being cleared at the Kimball Street location for building prep.

--Permission was granted for Donnie Rye and Chris Garza to attend a Summer Field Day and mosquito spraying training in Danville on August 22. The employees will receive credit hours toward certification. --The Board accepted the low quote of Freightliner of $135,721 for a new dump truck. --A Post Construction Compliance Monitoring Contract with BLA, proposed by the firm at the last meeting for $35,000, was found to be unnecessary at this time. Curtis stated this contract seems like a moot point as what they were offering to do isn’t required by the IDEM. The IDEM will help generate the reports if given the numbers. He stated they can instead do a contract on an hourly basis, if Givens needs help with reports, for a not-toexceed amount of $15,000 and that was approved.

Mayor John Tucker agreed to look into what monies the funding will come from for the phone system. --The Council passed resolution 13-17 authorizing the financing process for the new police-fire station. --Mrs. Sherry Willis gave an update on the CDL and no CDL drug testing policy she is working on with City Attorney Higgins. She stated ITI sent a sample ordinance but she had some questions on it and wants to add a few new items. Once it is finished, she will present a draft for Higgins and the Council to review. --Councilman Curtis inquired as to why the trash study information gathered by Umbaugh Associates of Indianapolis has not been

presented yet. “We need to figure out what we are going to do on the trash collections, trucks, etc.,” he noted. Councilman Andy Hoehn agreed to check with the firm as they should have had that information to them awhile ago. --Meeting as the Water Utility Board, the Council heard a report from Councilman Curtis that the dedication of Phase Three of the water project that morning was well attended and naming the water pretreatment plant in Chuck Gray’s honor was well deserved. Arthur Carroll of Sauerkraut Lane asked the Council for permission to tap in to city water lines and it was given as long as he fills out the proper paperwork and pays the associated tap-in fees.

‘drug convictions’ continued from Page A1 Methamphetamine, a Class B Felony. Members of the Posey County Narcotics Unit arrested Baker at his home, located at 1019 W. Second Street, Mount Vernon, Ind., on June 6, 2013. The arresting officer’s saw signs that Baker had been manufacturing methamphetamine in the home and Baker then gave the police ‘consent’ to search his home. Baker also admitted that he had last manufactured methamphetamine during the late night hours of June 5 or early morning hours of June 6. Baker was arrested and charged in Posey County Superior Court, with Count 1: Dealing in Methamphetamine, a Class A Felony; Count 2: Dealing Methamphetamine, a Class A Felony; Count 3: Possession of Methamphetamine, a Class C Felony; Count 4: Possession of Chemical Reagents or Precursors with Intent to Manufacture Methamphetamine, a Class C Felony; and Count 5: Maintaining a Common Nuisance, a Class 13 Felony; as a result of the

If a student is enrolled after the ADM count date, transfer tuition will be required to be paid for that semester. The policy will be looked over for possible changes and tweaks and brought before the Board again for final adoption. In other Board action: --The Board recognized the achievements of the MVHS Future Farmers of America Chapter at State Competition at Purdue University on June 17-19. They were cited as a Bronze Chapter for overall activities in 2012 and as a Gold Chapter Foundation Donor. Briana Ritzert and Morgan Zoch were elected to District X offices. David Reese, Ag Teacher and FFA Sponsor was named District X Outstanding Teacher for 2012-13.

--The Board approved a trip for Susan Hayden to attend the Indiana Skyward Users Group Meeting in Indianapolis on October 1.

Pickles that Pucker Pickled products add spice to meals and snacks. A wide variety of pickled products are available in stores. But with produce coming from gardens you may be interested in making your own pickles. There are four general classes of pickles. Brined or fermented pickles go through a curing process and take at least one week to make. Fresh pack pickles are covered with boiling vinegar and seasonings and can be made in a day. Flavor improves in several weeks. Fruit pickles are simmered in a syrup of spices and vinegar or lemon juice. Relishes are chopped produce cooked to desired consistency in a spicy vinegar solution. The level of acidity in pickled products is important for taste and texture but also for the safety of the product. If the product does not have enough acid there may be a danger of botulism. Use only tested recipes. Never alter the proportions of vinegar, food or water in a recipe. Purdue Extension is offering a class on making pickles. Participants will make a batch of fresh packed pickles as a group. Cost of the program is $5. All supplies are furnished. Each participant will receive one jar of pickles. ‘Pickles that Pucker’ will be Tuesday, July 30, 2013, at the Posey County Community Center kitchen. Please register by calling the Extension Office, 838-1331, by July 26.

RETROSPECT Descendants of Henry and Bertha (Espenlaub) Schroeder gathered July 21 at Zion-Lippe United Church of Christ for their traditional Second Christmas Day. “My grandparents had told us that on Christmas Day, everyone needed to be at home with their families but on Second Christmas Day, come and be with us,” Ruby Schroeder explained. But with 10 inches of snow on the ground this past Christmas, Ruby was forced to reschedule the event. “I opened up the calendar and saw July 21 was open so I just said, we will celebrate Christmas on July 21.” So like some of the retail stores, the Schroeders celebrated ‘Christmas in July.’ Read the complete story on page A8 in last week’s paper.

Red Cross needs donors of all types Whether someone is among the 39 percent of the U.S. population with type O positive blood or the two percent with B negative, the American Red Cross is looking for eligible donors of all types to give blood this summer to help avert a shortage. Those with O negative, A negative and B negative are especially urged to donate, as their blood types are often in high demand because they can potentially be transfused to both Rh negative and positive patients. O negative is the universal blood type and can potentially be transfused to any patient. 7/30/2013, 1 p.m.-6 p.m., Stockwell Blood Donation Center, 29 South Stockwell Road, Evansville 7/31/2013, 10 a.m.-3 p.m., Red Cross Nurse Amy Johnson checks on Julie Pierce Stockwell Blood Donation as she donates blood at the Poseyville Blood Drive held Center, 29 South Stockwell Thursday, July 25 at the Community Center.

Posey Humane Society News The dangers of leaving your dog in the car Every summer the heat in a car claims the lives of both children and pets. Hopefully the following facts will help point out the extreme dangers of leaving them in a car in the summer heat. The temperature in a car will rise approximately 40 degrees in an hour even on a relatively cool 72 degree F day. Cars can reach 120 degrees F in a matter of minutes on a hot day. Most of that temperature increase occurs in the first 30 minutes. Cracking the windows does not stop the heat from rising. Dogs can succumb to heatstroke even when the car is in the shade. Leaving the air conditioning and the car running doesn’t guarantee your dog’s safety. The air conditioning in vehicles work best as the car is moving and is not as effective when the car is still. The best bet: leave your dog at home on hot days or find alternate ways to run your errands. Keep your best friend safe to en-

COMMUNITY

Trust, convenience working for NH Garden Club By Lois Mittino Gray Here’s a win-win ‘Much Mulch’ situation. The New Harmony Garden Club offers residents an unusual opportunity to beautify their own homes, while helping to fund projects that the club does to improve public areas. Trust is involved as the successful three year old mulch project uses the honor system of payment. Residents can go to the Garden Cottage on Church Street next to the Johnson United Methodist Church and get as many bags of mulch needed at four dollars a bag. A sign there explains that checks or cash can be sent to Barb McConnell, the Mulch Chairman or Anne Scarafia, the Club Treasurer. “Three years ago, we were using so much mulch on our public garden beds and it looked so nice that people started asking us for it. I went to the West Side Home Depot and the manager there gave us a discount price and delivered it for free,” McConnell explained. “Now with today’s fuel prices, we have to pay some for delivery, but the Home Depot has been so gracious and easy to work with for these past three years.” The Royal Gardens dark wood decorative ground cover is

rich and fragrant and a quality product, so it is very popular with home landscapers. McConnell has already ordered two shipments of 12 pallets of mulch with 48 bags on a pallet so far this year. She will be placing another order soon as that is almost sold out and it does keep well over the winter. “People are so appreciative of how convenient our system is. Many folks in New Harmony are older and now they don’t have to go to the store and lug the heavy bags home all at once. They can come and take a few at a time in a golf cart if they want,” said McConnell. The ‘Mulch Master’ does not think any money has been lost from people taking advantage of the honor system. “It works for us and most residents realize that to buy our mulch is a community service. The small profit we make on each bag helps us to beautify our town.” New Harmony is so renowned for its beautiful flower beds and gardens that Garden Club members have hosted several visiting out-of-town chapters, taking them around town on golf cart Barb McConnell, the ‘Mulch Master’ shows off a tours.

Cruise beckons family caregivers

Kenadee Elizabeth Axley

Family caregivers understand all too well the stress of caring for an aging loved one. What better way to relieve that stress than a getaway? That’s why Indiana residents are invited to nominate deserving family caregivers – including themselves – for the opportunity to win a free, four-night, five-day cruise. Home Instead, Inc., franchisor of the Home Instead Senior Care® network, is sponsoring the cruise for one lucky caregiving hero and guest. Submit your nomination and vote by August 24, 2013, at http:// cruise.caregiverstress.com/. The Caregiver Cruise is scheduled for February 3-7, 2014, on the Royal Caribbean Enchantment of the Seas. The cruise will set sail from Cape Canaveral, Fla., with stops in CocoCay and Nassau, Bahamas. In addition to

the cruise, the winning recipient will receive 40 hours of free care from a Home Instead Senior Care professional CAREGiverSM for his/her senior loved one while away. “The stress of caregiving can have debilitating effects not only on family caregivers, but also on the older adults who are receiving that care,” said President Jeff Huber of Home Instead, Inc. “That’s why it’s important for caregivers to take care of themselves. And what better way to do that than during a tropical getaway.” The cruise offers a relaxing retreat with a number of optional activities such as putt-putt golf, cocktail hour, cupcake decorating and scavenger hunts, along with support groups and one-onone consultations with family caregiving expert Dr. Amy D’Aprix.

Smoke on the Ohio, part of Mount Vernon River Days, will be held Friday, September 13, and Saturday, September 14, with judging held Saturday. Categories this year include ‘chicken,’ ‘ribs,’ ‘pulled pork,’ and the newly added ‘brisket.’

Variety show to support Habitat families Seven churches in the St. Philips area are joining together to sponsor a Dinner, Ice Cream Social & Variety Show on Sunday, August 25. Dinner begins at 5 p.m. and the variety show begins at 5:30 p.m., at St. Peters United Methodist Church located at 2800 St. Phillip Road South.

Healthcare Center Don’t be surprised if you see Posey County resident Ron Gerstung driving down the road again. After several weeks of therapy at New Harmonie Healthcare, Ron is on his way to gaining enough strength, as well as a new prosthetic leg, to get his car keys back. Fighting his battle with Multiple Sclerosis and life as an amputee, Ron came to New Harmonie Healthcare after a stay at an Evansville hospital unable to walk, get into his wheelchair, or even sit up without help. Upon arrival, the therapists helped Ron focus on building his core strength as well as strengthening his left leg. At the end of his 3 week stay, Ron was able to sit up on his own, move his leg, and even transfer between his bed and his wheelchair. Armed with an exercise program and a positive attitude, Ron went back home to rest but quickly returned to therapy at New Harmonie Healthcare’s outpatient program. Ron came to the therapists with goals of walkings and driving. With a focus on increasing his strength and endurance, it took Ron only two weekks to be able to use a walker to move across the therapy room. Ron’s new prosthesis, which will arrive soon, will help him walk normally as well as get back behind the wheel. Ron wanted to thank the therapy department as well as his friends for all the support and encouragement they have offered, saying he “couldn’t have gotten this far without them.” It takes a lot of hard work and determination to make strides like Ron has been able to do. He also wanted to encourage others to be thankful for the gift and abilities they have. He is often heard in the therapy room saying, “you don’t know how good you have it until you lose it.” The therapy department at New Harmonie Healthcare wants to encourage Ron as he continues to improve. Both Ron and the staff have worked very hard and therefore have seen great success in Ron’s ability to function on his own.

BUSINESS Posey County Native Shares Insights on Retirement Living and Giving in New Book If you’re like most investors, more than likely, you have been spending the majority of the time in your financial meetings during the past five years discussing rates of return and alternative investment options. Jeremy Overton, a 1996 North Posey High School graduate and native of Wadesville, has a different approach: “When I interview people who don’t know what I do, they talk about meetings with their investment professionals the way they would dental appointments or boring lectures. That’s just not the way it has to be.” When Overton wrote Plan On It. Tools to Help Break Free of the Traditional Retirement Mindset, he sought to improve communication among investors, financial professionals, attorneys and donor professionals. “Ultimately, the goal is to help more people have the ability to enjoy their retirement savings, and in some cases, the confidence to start thinking about sharing it with their families and the causes they support.” “It’s hard to describe the book until you read it. You won’t find mind-numbing advice or complex strategies in there,” Overton says. “It’s designed to help retirees and those thinking of retiring to see where everything ‘fits’ in their picture. It gives readers a simple framework for discussing retirement that will

allow them to take a more active role in setting their retirement course.” “I’ve developed a quicker and easier conversation that streamlines the goal development process, but it is difficult to find the time or get the opportunity to talk to very many people individually, so it seemed logical to write a book and spread the idea to a larger audience.” The Eight Retirement Profiles™ described in the book help people find answers to the fundamental question: ‘How am I doing compared to other people?’ He adds, “Think of it like a menu for retirement. It’s designed to help people be able to easily express the big-picture idea of how they want retirement to look. They can point to a single item on a retirement menu that explains what they want.” To gather information for the book, Overton interviewed financial advisors from around the country, Canada and Australia. “I met Dr. Robb Musgrave, who wrote his PhD dissertation on creating personal legacies, at a conference in Pittsburgh last spring. Dr. Musgrave was kind enough to provide me with some valuable perspective on the history of retirement. He also read the book and provided feedback.” Overton also got some

local help by going back to his writing roots. “The first person to edit or give comments on the book was Linda Reising, who was my eighth grade creative writing teacher. She was very kind to take on the project for me when the book was really still in a pretty primitive stage.” The book is called, Plan On It. Tools to Help Break Free of the Traditional Retirement Mindset, although a tagline on the cover says, ‘Even if you’re already retired,’ which Overton says Santa and Sadie McClaus, of Hoosier Santas, welcomes patrons to IGA’s Benefit Cookout lets people know that it’s really a book for all ages. on Saturday morning. Photo by Zach Straw Overton adds, “The idea of retirement has evolved so much over the past 1520 years, and the book is designed to assist people in getting more out of their existing relationships.

Ticket sales began May 30. The raffle drawing was originally scheduled for July 11, but was postponed to Aug. 1 due to lagging ticket sales. As of Wednesday, July 17, the nonprofit organization has sold 2,258 tickets for this year’s fundraiser, which is 742 less than the total sold last year. The ‘Cool Car, Cold Cash’ grand prize winner will drive away a new 2013 Dodge Challenger SXT (valued at $27,335) donated by Larry Bennett’s Audubon Chrysler Center. The contest will also award one second prize of $5,000 and one third prize of $1,000. Tickets are $50 each or 3 for $100.

Mike Hasting and Richard Garrett are seen here after the Posey County Historical Society meeting on July 27, as they discussed some of the interesting facts about the Keck-Gonnerman Foundry. Hasting and his wife, Nancy, brought along with them a collection of pictures and other K-G collectibles that they have accumulated through the years (which can be seen in the background). Keck-Gonnerman produced steam engines, threshing equipment as well as mining equipment and sawmills. Hasting explained that at one time Keck-Gonnerman employed more than 200 men and had the largest payroll of any business in Mount Vernon. The company was founded in 1884 and continued operating until 1953, when it was sold to two California engineers. The Keck-Gonnerman tractor is the featured tractor at this year’s Keck-Gonnerman Farm Machinery Show at the 4-H Center August 1, 2, and 3. Photo submitted

USDA extends acreage reporting deadline USDA Farm Service Agency (FSA) Administrator Juan Garcia announced an extension of the final crop acreage reporting date through August 2, 2013. According to Indiana FSA State Executive Director Julia A. Wickard, “This is a welcome relief for many Indiana producers and our county office staff so sufficient time is available to file an accurate and complete acreage report to maintain eligibility for many USDA programs.” This extension provides FSA participants an additional 18 calendar days to submit their annual report of acreage to their local FSA offices. The previous acreage reporting date deadline was July 15, 2013. These acreage reports are necessary to determine and maintain eligibility for

various programs such as the Direct and Counter-Cyclical Program (DCP); Marketing Assistance Loans (MAL’s); the Average Crop Revenue Election Program (ACRE); the Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) and the Noninsured Crop Disaster Assistance Program (NAP). Annually, producers file these reports which include all crops and land uses, including prevented and failed acreage reports. “Many producers are just finalizing decisions about planting late season and double crop soybeans due to wetter than normal growing season,” stated Wickard. This acreage report extension does not extend dates for crop insurance through the Risk Management Agency (RMA). The deadline for RMA acreage reporting is July 15, 2013 for most spring planted crops. Farmers are reminded to report any loss within 72 hours of discovery to their insurance company so that a loss adjuster can inspect the crop before it is destroyed. Producers are encouraged to contact their insurance agent if there are any questions about coverage, prevented planting, or claim reporting. For questions about acreage reporting requirements or any FSA program, producers should contact their local FSA county office or visit FSA online at www.fsa.usda. gov.

School bus safety and rules Always remain 10 steps away from the bus to be out of the ‘Danger Zone’ and where the driver can see you. Always cross the street in front of the bus. Never go behind the bus. To be safe when they travel to and from school, follow these simple safety rules: At the bus stop: • Always walk to the bus stop. Never run. • Walk on the sidewalk. If there is no sidewalk, walk on the left facing traffic. • Always go to the bus stop about five minutes before the bus is scheduled to arrive. While at the bus stop, wait in a safe place away from the road. Do not run and play while waiting. • Never speak to strangers at the bus stop and never get into the car with a stranger. Always go straight home and tell you parents if a stranger tries to talk to you or pick you up. • Wait for the bus to arrive, watch for red flashing lights and the stop sign to be extended, and cross only when all traffic has stopped. Look left, right, and left again before crossing. On the bus: • Go directly to a seat. Remain seated and facing forward for the entire ride. • Talk quietly (so the driver will not be dis-

tracted). • If you need to talk to the bus driver: wait for the bus to stop, raise your hand, and call the driver’s name. • Never throw things on the bus or out the windows. Never play with the emergency exits. • Keep the aisles clear at all times. • If there is an emergency, listen to the driver and follow instructions. Exit the bus: • When getting off the bus make sure you walk (not run) three more steps away from the door. This is the best place to be around a bus. Stay away from the bus wheels and watch out for moving cars. • Once you get off the bus, go straight home so an adult will know where you are. • Only get on and off the bus at your designated stop. If you need to get off the bus somewhere else, you will need to have a note from your parents. • If you leave something on the bus, never return to the bus to get it. The driver may not see you come back and they may begin moving the bus. • Also, if you drop something near the bus, tell the bus driver before you attempt to pick it up, so they will know where you are.

How to avoid being bullied

1. Note that body language is extremely important. Do not look at your feet when you walk. Do not bite your nails (it is an animal instinct of nervousness). Do not walk with your hands in your pockets. Examine your current habits: do any of them make you seem smaller, weaker or less physically capable? If so, change them to something that will make you appear larger and more confident. 2. Keep in mind that self esteem is even more important but harder to attain. You are a very important person. You matter. You matter to your parents, teachers and relatives. Self-confidence may be the only thing that separates you from the most popular kid in school. 3. Do not attempt to throw back comebacks unless you are incredibly adept. Bullies practice their comebacks on other kids all day everyday. You probably don’t and you will merely say something that they will use against you. 4. When ridiculed, say nothing, and stare them viciously in the eye like a hungry animal. This may be difficult at first but you won’t be giving them the reaction they want. They want you to give in and try to fight them so they can beat you. If you don’t fight, they can’t win. 5. You should always tell a parent, teacher or principal if

you are bullied. Remember, it is not your fault. Your school has a legal right to provide you with a safe and fair education. If you are being bullied, your legal rights are being violated. Do not keep quiet. 6. Keep an eye out in the halls. These are great bully hideouts because they can strike while you are in a group so they won’t be seen. Move among the other kids with head held high, scanning for threats. It may sound a bit paranoid but it comes in very handy. 7. You do not deserve to be bullied. Nothing you have done and nothing that you are caused you to be bullied. Bullies are people who have low self-esteem and a great need for power - a bad combination. Thousands of kids who are perfectly nice get bullied every single day. But you have to take action against it. Don’t start a fight, but don’t let bullying continue. 8. Wait until they have thrown the first punch or have hurt or have attempted to hurt you physically. You can then claim it was in self defense and that you just didn’t want to get hurt anymore. Never say ‘he started it.’ Use the words ‘self defense’ or say ‘I feared for my safety.’ 9. Do not do anything physical to the bully. You are the target. They are not the target, because you want to avoid

them. Don’t do anything to make them mad. If you get upset, and want to slap him/her in the face, walk away with your head held high. 10. If they make fun of something you do or something you wear, do not change your habits. This will only show them they have power over you. 11. The first time someone you don’t know offends you, insults you or hits you this is your chance to stop them before it gets bad. If you stand up for yourself straight away, it sends a message that they should leave you alone. If you let them get away with it by looking away or ignoring it, it may continue and others may join in. Look a bully straight in the eye. Give him a death stare. Bullies often back down with this. Watch your body language. Don’t look at the floor. Don’t slouch and wish you could disappear, even though you feel that way. Stand strong and tall and face your bully. Bullies usually pick victims who won’t stand up to them. 12. Most importantly, remember that it is not your fault. Tell your school counselor, parents, teacher, and continue to tell them if it does not stop. Schools are breaking the law if they allow bullying to continue within their walls. They must provide you with a safe education.

Nutrition, physical activity play large role in educational performance Often, summer break is when the children’s healthy eating plans take a vacation. So, as summer comes to an end and the school year nears, take time to refocus your efforts as a family to ensure your children’s nutrition and physical activity habits are ready for the year ahead. Breakfast is a very important meal for growing children. Studies show that breakfast eaters tend to have higher school attendance, less tardiness and fewer hunger-induced stomach aches in the morning. Their overall test scores are higher, they concentrate better, solve problems more easily and have better muscle coordination. So whether they eat at home or at school, be sure your children eat a nutritious breakfast every day.

If your children’s school provides meals, take time to go over the menu with them and discuss how to build a healthful and nutritious meal they will enjoy. Make sure the choices include whole grains, vegetables, fruits and low-fat or fat-free dairy at every meal. If you pack your children’s lunch, take your kids grocery shopping with you and allow them to pick out healthy foods that they enjoy. Your children are much more likely to eat what you pack for them if they have picked it out themselves. If your children are involved in after-school activities, pack a healthy snack they can eat beforehand. Fruit or vegetable slices, 100 percent fruit juice and whole-grain crackers with low-fat

cheese are healthy options that will give them the energy they need to make it to dinner. Regular physical activity is also vital to your children’s development. Not all children may like sports, but there are still plenty of ways they can get exercise on a daily basis at school and at home. In fact, involving the whole family is a great way to spend time together while getting the physical activity everyone needs. Most importantly, talk to your children. Learn the foods they like. Teach them about the foods they need for their growing bodies. Find ways together to make sure they have the knowledge and ability to eat healthy and tasty foods at every meal.

OPINION

If, like me, you have had enough, why not show it? Seldom am I one to encourage anyone to attend an event when I write editorials on this page. The Editorial Page, as most of you know, is a page in the newspaper free of actual ‘news.’ This page was created with the ear- TRUTH... liest newspapers to give writ- STRANGER ers, generally pretty well in- THAN formed regarding community FICTION and government happenings, BY DAVE an opportunity to write their PEARCE opinion on this page without fear of retribution. As writers, we all have opinions too, but we do our best not to express them in the news stories we write. We can be held libelous for inflicting our own opinions on the pages containing ‘news.’ However, another whole set of rules comes into play when a writing appears on the Opinion Page because it is just that, an opinion. Any of you who know me well at all know I usually have an opinion on just about everything. Sometimes I am better than other times at keeping it to myself. Sometimes I wish I was better at keeping it to myself. But like each and every one of our readers, I, too am entitled to an opinion. So for this week, here goes. I am appalled at the people who have opposed the young people who are wanting to display their Bible School crosses on the riverfront in Evansville. From my understanding, the opposition sprung from two (of about 250,000) people in the great Evansville Metropolitan area. For those of you who are familiar with the subject at hand, I will tell the story in my own words. Some members of Vacation Bible Schools in Evansville apparently decided it would be

nice if they could display the crosses they made along the Evansville riverfront. They jumped through all the appropriate hoops to get all the appropriate permissions and permits. God knows everything else has been displayed along the riverfront in the past. These students were proud of their work and wanted the people of Evansville to see it. Yes, obviously, when the art was created, it was created in a Vacation Bible School. And while it is considered art, the cross obviously stands for more than other forms of art to Christians. Not unlike other forms of art, there are some people (albeit very few in this case) who oppose the group putting their crosses on the riverfront. However, like all other forms of art, permission was sought and granted. However, when two people opposed, the American Civil Liberties Union (as if there are not much bigger problems in the world) decided to get involved and file a lawsuit trying to block the right of these youngsters to display their art. Why? Would someone please tell me why this organization is against this particular artistic display. If the display had been liberal in nature, this organization would never have had an interest. Look at some of the ‘art’ that has adorned the riverfront before and you can quickly see that it really has never been an issue…until now. I don’t know about other area citizens, but frankly I have had enough of my liberties and freedoms taken away in the past few years. It appears that many of my friends have been targeted by the IRS while the NSA has listened to phone conversation and has been into email accounts. And apparently this is just the begin-

ning. Where was the ACLU when conservatives were being targeted by the IRS? Where was the ACLU when the NSA was involved in illegal wiretapping and phone tapping activities? Honestly, things that have happened over the past four or five years have made the Richard Nixon Watergate fiasco look like that of a choir boy. Next Sunday when the art is displayed for the first time on the riverfront, I will be there. I will be standing up for the rights of these young people to display their ‘art.’ Is that not freedom of speech? With North Korea trying to sneak missiles through the Panama Canal from Cuba to, no doubt, aim at us and with everything that is going on in the Middle East, with the economy on the skids and American freedom be-

ing threatened, surely my friends at the ACLU could more wisely spend their time and money on something more tangible, valuable, and important than trying to take away more freedom from Americans. Their frivilous suit will also cost the City of Evansville a crazy amount in attorney fees and all because of two people and the ACLU. So, I’m asking anyone who cares about their freedom to come to the Evansville Riverfront from 3 to 4 p.m. at the old McCurdy Hotel in downtown Evansville. This is not about separation of church and state. This is about freedom. It is about freedom of speech and freedom of religion. Please make plans now to attend. There is enough apathy. At some point, someone has to say ‘enough.’ I believe it is time and the opportunity has presented itself

Guest Column State Rep. Wendy McNamara Guest Editorial: Glenn Mollette

New laws for Hoosier veterans The General Assembly worked hard last session to create legislation that will benefit Hoosier veterans. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the unemployment rate for post 9/11 veterans in Indiana rests at an unacceptable 20 percent. These brave men and women have fought for our freedom and put their lives on the line for our country – we must do better. Key pieces of legislation were passed with bipartisan support this year in an effort to create more high quality jobs for veterans. Some of the bills help to open up paths for easier employment in areas of work that are directly transferrable from military service, such as House Enrolled Act (HEA) 1486. HEA 1486 works to place veterans with the necessary skills to be emergency medical technicians, a profession that is in high demand. The bill will waive the application fee to the Emergency Medical Services Commission if a veteran has already met the requirements. Giving this access to veterans, many of which are veterans of the medical field, will allow the state to fill critical job availabilities and get Hoosiers back to work. Senate Enrolled Act (SEA) 564 is another new law that will give veteran-owned small business a preference on state contracts. This legislation creates a major opportunity to address a high number of unemployed veterans by giving these businesses more opportunities to work with the state.

A piece of legislation that will help keep veterans who are seeking higher education from leaving Indiana is SEA 177. This law will help incentivize veterans to go to school and work in Indiana. Too often veterans have a difficult time finding employment when they reenter civilian life. SEA 177 aims to ensure that the veterans who are coming to Indiana for higher education are more likely to build their lives in the Hoosier state by having residency requirements that could encourage these veterans to live and work in Indiana after graduation. The ‘brain drain’ is a major issue facing our community as college grads head to other states, and this is a small step that works to remedy it. In the House, we will continue to find ways to recognize the sacrifice Hoosier veterans have made for our country, and support them as they build their own American Dream. Through legislation like HEA 1486, SEA 564 and SEA 177, Indiana will expand its growing economic climate to benefit Hoosier heroes. Veterans will continue to be leaders in Indiana communities through their example and now even more through their entrepreneurial spirit. 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.

Foreword In her book Voices from Haskell, Indian Students Between Two Worlds 18841928, Myriam Vuckovic explains the importance of football and a new football stadium to Native Americans in the early 20th Century: “To Haskell’s athletes, the football field was a place where they felt they could fight their white opponents on equal terms, proving their intelligence and physical skills. To them, Indian-White football was not just a game. It was about crossing and defending boundaries, history and myth, the frontier, Crazy Horse, and Custer.” Haskell @ p. 157. Vuckovic interprets the funding of the new football stadium at Haskell Indian Institute (1926) by Native Americans, especially from oil rich Osages and Quapaws from the new state of Oklahoma, as resulting from: “… [A] great expression of ethnic pride, a place where Indians could symbolically challenge and beat white society.” Id. @ p. 157.

Living In Multicultural American I was eating lunch with a high school friend recently at an Atlanta airport restaurant. He has worked in customs for eight years. He noted, ‘Everyone working in this restaurant is from someplace else.’ We were intrigued and started asking those in the busy restaurant their country of origin. Everyone we asked, and there were several, had moved to the United States within the last six years. Many people could never imagine America changing as much as we have. Freedom allows for change, diversity, new ideas and people with completely different backgrounds. Freedom doesn’t mean that we have to believe what others believe but it does mean we have to respect the liberty of those who believe it. America is rapidly changing in her appearance. The white race is becoming the minority. African Americans, Hispanics and Latinos will eventually number in the majority. While Christians are still in the majority fewer and fewer people go to church. Christianity is on the verge of being drowned out by other religious movements because they see America as their mission field. Hindu, Islam, Buddhism and any religion that has funds to survive in America are permeating our nation. They are changing the landscape of what once was mostly comprised of Catholics and Protestants. In the center of our changing country we have to remember one relevant fact. This is still

the United States of America. We love our freedom. We love our country. We respect the rights of all our citizens who live and work peacefully in our country to make this their home and a good place. I do not expect every American to look like me, talk like me, think like me or act like me. How boring would it be if we were all the same? We are all different. As other nations flood our country the change is only going to accelerate. I’ve had the joyous privilege of working with many different people from different countries. I have wonderful friends who are black, white, rich and poor. They are from throughout the United States, and around the world. I would be sad to think that my life relationships would be limited to just a certain cultural group or segment of our population. America will continue to grow more beautiful and stronger as people come legally and we embrace those who love our country and its opportunities. Those who come to our country must come legally and abide by the same laws every citizen abides by. As we work together we can continue to be the best place in the world.

Letters to the Editor If the situation were reversed? I have followed the George Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin case since it started until the present. First of all, I would like to say it was a tragedy for both people involved in this situation. It was a tragedy because a young man lost his life over bad decisions that he made. It was also a tragedy that George Zimmerman has ruined his life because of one incident that the media has chosen to hype just for headlines. This case was nothing but race baiting from the start of this unfortunate incident. It is not just the media’s involvement in this situation, but many other personalities trying to promote themselves and their personal causes. It sickens me to see how cold and calculating groups and individuals can be just to encourage a bad situation, even worse to the point that it takes on a life of it’s own. That is where we are currently at with the Zimmerman / Martin case. Even the President of the United States has to get involved with his premature statement of ‘If I had a son he would look like Trayvon.’ I have been around several decades, and have seen numerous Presidents, but I have never heard a standing president make a statement or get involved in a current criminal case before it was even tried in our court system. Sorry President Obama, you were way out of line and used very poor judgment. If that is not ‘fanning the flames of racial divide’ I have never heard it. Jessie Jackson and Al Sharpton are two more opportunist who love to stir up socioeconomic and racial division in every incident that has race involved. I refuse to call them by the prefix Rev. because in my personal opinion, neither one of them are qualified for the title. Race baiter’s would be a more appropriate title. Now we have involvement from race hating groups such as the Black Panther Party.

It is individuals and groups such as the before mentioned that disgust me beyond words. George Zimmerman was acquitted by the Florida State Court system of all charges against him, including murder and manslaughter. That means the Florida jury rejected that he intended to kill Trayvon Martin for any reason including racial motivation necessary for Federal charges which a large majority of the black groups in American are calling for now. That’s called Double Jeopardy in legal terms. Under our Criminal Justice system, you cannot charge an individual twice for the same crime that he has just been acquitted of. I would ask these people, where are they when the roles are reversed and there are white or Hispanic victims involved? Where is the outcry and concern then? There is a current case in the state of Georgia where a 13-monthold baby named Antonio Santiago was shot in the face at point-blank range and killed by two black teenagers who were attempting to rob his mother, who was also shot. A Grand Jury has determined the teens who allegedly murdered the baby ‘will not’ face the death penalty because they were under age. Yet the two black teens accused of this crime gave Antonio Santiago a death sentence for being defenseless and innocent. Earlier in the year, there were two more black teens that doused a white teenager with gasoline and set him on fire burning him severely. There is no ‘White Panther Party’ to offer a price for the lives of these accused, there is no marching and protest in the street for the injustice perpetrated on these white and Hispanic victims. Where is the outrage of the Black Community? Where is the protest from Al Sharpton and Jessie Jackson for these victims of different color? “The silence is deafening.” Randy Thornburg

Kelly Cox named new girls’ soccer coach at Mount Vernon By Steven Kochersperger With the start of a new school year right around the corner, High School sports are about to be back in full swing. This year there is a new coach in the Mount Vernon High School sports program and he is chomping at the bit to get started. The new coach is not new to the town or school but Kelly Cox will bring a new perspective and brand of soccer to the struggling Wildcat lady soccer team. When Liz Castle resigned her position as the lady Cats head coach following last season, Kelly Cox felt it was time to step up and do what he could do for this program. After

Cox all, Cox isn’t a stranger to the program after watching his daughter play soccer at Mount Vernon the past four years and now transition to division one soccer. “I’ve been around the program for a while and see the improvement it has made in terms of wins and losses the last four

years,” Cox said. “I am looking forward to seeing what we can do this year and beyond.” Cox has been a teacher now for 30 years, 20 of those at Mount Vernon High School. Cox teaches chemistry at the school and has built many relationships in Mount Vernon during these years. Cox grew up in Posey County and graduated from Mount Vernon High School. His roots run deep in the county as his ancestors were among the first in the county. Cox is married and has four children. It was through his children’s years around soccer that he began to build a love and understanding for the

sport. All four of his children played soccer, but it was his third child Kate that began to excel and play at a higher level. This gave Cox more exposure to the sport but also many opportunities to learn as a coach of some of his daughters’ teams as well. And now as he heads into his first year as a High School soccer coach Cox feels like it has all come full circle. Not only is he excited to get started but he is ready to start winning. “This program has a history of not winning many games in its short history and it’s time for that to end.” Cox said. “I’m ready to get out there and start playing the games. I am

not completely sure what is coming this year in terms of wins and losses but we want to see the program continue to grow and improve.” Joining Cox on the sidelines as assistants this season are junior high teachers Michelle Johnson and Christina Franklin. Both Johnson and Franklin love the sport and bring a lot to the table in terms of coaching the girls to be successful. Cox also hopes to continue to grow the program as a whole. Johnson has been coaching the junior high team and Cox hopes that relationship will help the future of the girls’ soccer program. “We have a

much closer relationship with the junior high than we have ever had,” Cox boasted. “In our open gym times in July the junior high girls have been near us. In any successful program you have to have a pipeline of athletes in the program developing along the way and we feel that is going to begin to happen now.” Practices begin August 5 for the girls’ soccer program and games will begin a week later. And one thing is for sure, the program seems to be in good hands. And if Cox can lead the girls to a successful season, he will have received the welcome he was looking for.

DNR NEWS An easy way to find the deer license you need

Applications for state park deer reduction hunts

Youth Ambassadors highlight state parks

Determining which deer license you need should be easier thanks to improvements to the DNR’s online sport license finder. The website, dnr.In.Gov/ fishwild/6486.Htm, has been improved to include all deer license types. Deer season, which begins Sept. 15 with the opening of hunting in designated urban zones, may seem far away. But hunters can apply online beginning July 1 for certain reserved deer hunts, including state park deer reduction hunts, and must have a license to apply. Previously, the deer license finder only told users a deer license was needed to hunt deer. The new system allows users to identify the type of deer license they need depending on hunting equipment, whether the hunter is an adult, and whether the hunter is an indiana resident. “Changes to the deer rules in the 2012 season confused some hunters about which deer license

Applications are available online for Hoosiers wanting to participate in special deer reduction hunts at designated Indiana state parks this fall. The first round of state park deer reduction hunting will be Nov. 18 and 19. The second round will be Dec. 2 and 3. State park deer reductions help maintain and restore unique and valuable ecosystems damaged by whitetailed deer. The designated parks are closed to the general public on hunting days. Applications are available at IndianaOutdoor.IN.gov. The application deadline is Aug. 25. Applicants should see details at dnr.IN.gov/fishwild/5834.htm before applying. Applicants must be Indiana residents and be 18 years old by Nov. 18, 2013, and possess at least one valid Indiana deer license. Apprentice and private preserve licenses are not applicable. Each person may apply only once for each state park deer reduction effort, regardless of primary

Eight volunteer youth ambassadors are documenting their visits to Indiana’s state parks and reservoirs through photos, videos and blogs at AmericasStateParks.org. The ambassador program is a youth-led movement promoting the outdoors to other young adults. Ambassadors share their passion for the outdoors in hopes of inspiring others to experience what state parks offer. The goals of Indiana’s youth ambassadors are to visit all 32 Indiana state parks and

types to use,” said Michelle Cain, Wildlife Information Specialist with the DNR Division Of Fish & Wildlife. “Most hunters know they need a deer license, but it can sometimes be hard to determine which license you need,” Cain said. “The new system allows hunters to choose their equipment type and then gives them a list of licenses for that equipment type and what can be legally harvested.” Deer licensing options are numerous and range from a simple $7 youth hunt/trap license for deer hunters age 17 and younger to a $65 license bundle that covers all hunting equipment and allows for the harvest of one antlered and two antlerless deer. The license finder also helps hunters and anglers determine what license they need to legally hunt or fish for all indiana game species. It also includes prices, stamp privileges, and, in some cases, bag limits.

or buddy status. All applications sharing duplicate names will be disqualified. Biologists determine which parks require a reduction based on habitat recovery and previous harvest data. Parks participating this year are Brown County, Chain O’Lakes, Charlestown, Harmonie, Indiana Dunes, Lincoln, McCormick’s Creek, Ouabache, Pokagon, Potato Creek, Prophetstown, Shades, Shakamak, Spring Mill, Summit Lake, Tippecanoe River, Turkey Run, Versailles and Whitewater Memorial, which will hold reduction hunts using firearms, and Fort Harrison and Clifty Falls, which will hold reduction hunts using archery. This year marks the twentieth anniversary of the first state park deer reduction hunt in Indiana. “Though browse lines and skinny deer remain in the past, less obvious damage persists and requires our close attention and management,” said Mike Mycroft, chief of natural resources for DNR State Parks & Reservoirs.

reservoirs and to help tell each property’s story. “We have some talented writers and photographers posting wonderful pictures and blogs,” said Jody Heaston, volunteer coordinator for the DNR Division of State Parks & Reservoirs. “It’s great to see these young adults enjoying the properties.” Information about other volunteer opportunities at Indiana state parks and reservoirs is at StateParks.IN.gov. Click on ‘How You Can Help’ under ‘Stewardship Links.’

State park boat launch permit Any private watercraft that will be moored or operating with a gasoline or electric motor on a lake in a state forest, state park, or state reservoir must have a motorized lake permit. Canoes, rowboats and paddleboats that will never be used with an electric or gas motor on those lakes can have a non-motorized lake permit. If a canoe or rowboat will be used with a motor at some time during the year on one of those listed lakes, a motorized lake permit should be purchased.

Prices are listed at http://www. in.gov/dnr/parklake/5058.htm. It is best to purchase the permit in advance of your visit if possible to ensure that you are in compliance with the requirement. This annual DNR lake permit is available for purchase at state park, reservoir and forests at property offices and entrance gates when staffed. It is also available online through the e-store at http:// www.innsgifts.com/?WT.cg_ n=Content&WT.cg_s=FAQs.
