Avery’s Place will be in MV riverfront’s Sherburne Park

By Lois Mittino Gray There was no question that the Mount Vernon Community was supporting an all-inclusive playground called ‘Avery’s Place,’ a project spearheaded by a high school student’s dream and the memory of MSD Mount Vernon student Avery Beste. The question in contention was where to put the popular park’s location. That issue was resolved at the July meeting of the Mount Vernon Parks and Recreation Board when it selected Sherburne Park on the riverfront as the site for the innovative idea. Sydney Deno, a junior at Mount Vernon High School, has a vision that provides a place where children of all abilities play together, learn from one another, value differences and find strength to overcome challenges. She first presented the idea to the Mount Vernon Common Council at its January 18, 2018 meeting. They were receptive to her plan, but almost immediately the question was raised if the original site planned for the playground, the flat terrace in Riverbend Park where the metal swinging benches and riverside view is, would be the best location. The naysayers to that location made it clear that they were not against the idea of a park accessible to everyone, just against putting it there.

The new Sherburne Park site is still on the riverfront, on the other side of the boat dock entry road, near the concrete steps by the public boat dock. Sydney’s mother, Rachel, said that the location will need to be built up in surface, as it floods often and constant water could mar the expensive equipment. She said the historical pagoda currently at the spot would not be moved in any way. Any memorial trees and markers at the site now will be relocated to a new site in the Riverbend Park, as will the 175th anniversary lamp posts. The swings that are currently on the spot may be moved to another city park location. Because the land will have to be built up and the park will have a different shape from the original plan developed by the award winning non-profit organization known as Unlimited Play, the estimated funds to be raised increased. Unlimited Play’s motto is “where limitations are forgotten, and differences are celebrated.” The playgrounds have equipment specifically designed to remove physical and social barriers so all children, with and without disabilities, can play side by side with their peers and families. The playground will be approximately 8,750 square feet and the estimated cost is now $710,000. There will be an ad-

ditional cost of approximately $75,000 to build a retaining wall at the Riverfront to prevent flooding. Fundraising efforts are underway and Deno estimates that about ten percent has been raised to date. Avery’s Place has obtained a $25,000 grant from the Vectren Foundation and is waiting to hear on one possible grant through Valero. “I would love to say we would like to have it completed by next summer, but it will all depend on donations. We need to have most of the money raised to begin the construction. Now that we have the site settled, perhaps additional money will come in,” she hopes. A rib-cooking fundraiser at IGA was held for the playground on Friday. Donations may be submitted online at: Avery’s Place – Unlimited Play or mailed to Unlimited Play, 5998 Mid Rivers Mall Drive, Suite 220, Saint Peters, Mo. 63304 (denote Avery’s Place on the envelope). Donations may also be sent to the Mount Vernon Parks and Recreation Department at P.O. Box 324, Mount Vernon, Ind. 47620 (denote Avery’s Place on the envelope). Community members can sponsor an individual playground item, donate in-kind services and supplies, and volunteer time, too.

Mount Vernon student spearheads new literacy plan By Pam Robinson The Schelhorn Brothers hope to draw a crowd to support local literacy this Thursday, August 1, at Hawg ‘N Sauce, from 6 to 9 p.m. They will be “Rockin’ to Read” as they play their music and patrons enjoy the Hawg’s award-winning

barbecue. The brainchild of MVHS senior, Emma Yarber, “Rockin’ to Read” allows people the opportunity to donate books or money to buy books for the libraries in the community’s four elementary schools—Saint Matthew, Farmer-

sville, Marrs, and West. T-shirts for the cause will be on sale also for $12 each. The Schelhorn Brothers will contribute donations for favorite song requests as well. “I really wanted an event to attract a lot of people,” Yarber states. “Everybody loves music and food. This was a great way to combine the two to get as many people there as I could to donate to my cause.” Yarber says both book donations (gently used and new) suitable for elementary libraries (grades Kfive) and monetary donations are welcome. She points out, however, monetary donations will allow schools more freedom in selecting books to meet their needs. This cause isn’t new to Yarber. She’s been promoting reading and public speaking for about two years on her Facebook account, Read It and Speak, a Project by Emma Yarber, and on her blog, http://emmayarber421.wixsite. com/readitandspeak. In addition, Yarber has worked with the Alexandrian Public Library to help encourage students to read more and to use more services at the public library. She has provided a presentation to all MVJHS seventh graders as well on giving their first speech in English class. “Reading and public speaking are what I relate to the most and what I am knowledgeable about and passionate about. I’ve always loved to read, and public speaking has just come naturally,” Yarber shares to explain her choice of causes. “They are things I’m good at and enjoy. I know they are important skills to have to be successful. If I can push everyone in my community—not just the youth— to improve upon those skills and be passionate about those skills, I know they can be successful, too. I’m helping everyone be successful with this cause.” The daughter of Troy and Jamie,Yarber thrives on being a good citizen. Just this summer, she

was one of three high-school 4-H members selected to attend 4-H Citizenship Washington Focus, or CWF. A 10-year 4-H member as of 2020, Yarber enjoyed improving leadership and citizenship skills during this week-long program. Her team there was awarded a $500 grant as the winner of the community service project competition. Otherwise, Yarber stays busy with school and extracurricular activities. She is active in cheer for basketball and football, softball, and theater. She enjoys traveling also and hopped between England and Ireland for two weeks this

summer. She maintains this schedule while working three part-time jobs. Although undecided on a college, she wants to major in sociology and communications to prepare for a career in politics. Her dream is to be elected Indiana State Attorney General. Small wonder, Yarber has set out now to win the community’s support and to organize her first fundraiser for local literacy. She wants to make a difference in the lives of those around her. She looks forward to greeting everyone and shaking hands at “Rockin’ to Read” this Thursday at Hawg ‘N

Dear Old Cynthiana Ladies

Madeleine, I was recently reminded of the ďŹ ve old ladies I used to B C P visit when I was a child. They were all Cynthiana widows, and I loved going to see them. I only wish I could remember more than I do. Of course, one of them was my Aunt Ella, twin sister to my grandmother, Stella. Grandmother was the dominant twin, evidently from childhood. Aunt Ella was the quiet one. I only know the basics of her early life. I have written about this before, but my grandma was very possessive of her husband, Herbert Montgomery, even in old age. Ella was the unpaid helper at our house, doing gardening, picking, and canning. After a long hot day, Grandpa took her home to town. Grandma never let him do that alone; she was so jealous. Even as a child, I thought this was odd. Ella lived in a ramshackle rent house, with a musty smell and no indoor plumbing. There was a strange old cabinet on her back porch, which “tickedâ€? for no apparent reason. We all thought some long-dead relative inhabited it. I ran o to Cynthiana on a regular basis, and went to her house. Stella always came after me with a switch. When we went shopping, maybe in Princeton, Aunt Ella always slipped me a dollar or two. She was a good person, who had a hard life, but never complained. Left as a widow at an early age, she was never a mother. Her

husband, Adrian, was a good man, and they had good years. He owned several acres of farmland near Antioch in Gibson County. The small income from the yearly crops gave her a meager amount. After her death in 1965, and the will was read, the amount left from selling the land was divided between my mother and me. This unexpected inheritance provided the down payment we used to build our home on Church Street in Poseyville, where my daughter still resides. After church, I liked to sit on her front porch, reading the Sunday newspaper. She made marvelous iced tea, and delicious apple pie, with a lattice top and apples minced into tiny pieces. Her large, dark bedroom, complete with an antique featherbed, was where her sister, Nell, and also my great-grandmother, Mag, spent their last days. It was this bed where my mother found my aunt, quietly passed away. Her alcoholic brother, James, and his blonde Norwegian wife, Marge, also spent time in that room. From time to time, they came from Indianapolis to visit and be waited on. It was, unfortunately, also where they came to “dry out.� When Marge learned they were not included in the will, they did not even stay in town for Ella’s funeral. I later learned they passed away in state institutions. Marge was a bitchy lady who criticized all of us, until she needed something. Uncle James, was nice to me, and always called me “kid.� Her next door neighbor, Nellie Williams, was a jolly plump matron, also a widow. She had a large pear tree, which I enjoyed when the fruit was ripe in autumn. Her outside water

faucet was the source of our drinking water. We had gallon size glass jars that we ďŹ lled up every week, and stored on a garage shelf. On Ella’s other side, another lady, “Nannyâ€? Williams, was one of my special friends. She baked wonderful cookies, and also taught me much of what I know today about owers. Like many old ladies from that time, she was rail thin. Her favorite ower was ageratums, and I always think of her when I see them. Years later, I picked her up at the nursing home and took her to my home to see my owers. I wanted her to see that all of her teaching had paid o. One home further along was where “Nannyâ€? McReynolds lived. I don’t remember her very well, but her son, Rex, was my mother’s “rideâ€? to her Evansville job. Her grandson recently became one of my Facebook friends. In the same section of town, but a few blocks away, was the home of Iva Murphy. I got to help make tay at her house. From time to time, she gave me a piece or two from her collection of glass things. I loved a little glass squirrel, and kept it close all of my life, until I recently gave it to Heather. Another was a glass powder jar in orange carnival glass, featuring a deer on the lid. In those days, many ladies, young and old, kept a container of talcum powder on their dressers. I am assuming that this was the source of many cancers, only recently ďŹ gured out. I write about many childhood memories, but these old ladies make up a nice portion of it. I sincerely hope that they somehow know I am remembering them.

Qualified cast brings ‘Driving Miss Daisy’ home at NHT By Lois Mittino Gray “Driving Miss Daisy,” the New Harmony Theatre’s last offering of its 32nd season, starts off with a bang….a loud one. As the audience sits in the dark waiting for the play to begin, the sound of a crashing car accident can be heard. Seems Miss Daisy put her three-weekold car in reverse, instead of drive, and demolished the vehicle, her neighbor’s garage, a freestanding shed and the shrubbery next door. It’s time someone else does the driving for the 72-year-old former school teacher. That’s the basis for this delightful play, written by Alfred Uhry, who won the 1988 Pulitzer Prize for Drama with his playful prose. Daisy’s son hires Hoke Coleburn, a black man, as a driver to keep his mother off the road. Their relationship over twenty-five years is told through a series of short vignettes; sometimes humorous, sometimes argumentative, and often poignant. The setting is Atlanta, Georgia in the Deep South of 1948, just prior to the civil rights movement. Daisy Werthan, a rich, retired sharp-tongued Jewish widow is told by her son, Boolie, that the new 1949 Hudson Commodore he bought her to replace the one she totaled, would be driven by a ‘colored’ man. At first, the matron treats Hoke with disdain and a patronizing attitude. Hoke needs the job and tolerates the treatment, saying lines that are real zingers, as the two expose their mutual differences. They learn to live with each other and drive to the Piggly-Wiggly grocery store and take a road trip to Alabama. As time goes by, the scenes span the years as the two grow close and depend on each other for company and support. Slowly and steadily, the dignified, good-natured Hoke breaks down the stern defenses of the ornery old lady. She teaches him to read and write after she discovers to her surprise that he cannot read the names on the tombstones in the cemetery while visiting her husband’s grave. He becomes more to her than “just a back of the neck to look at.” The play explores political issues, such as racism and anti-Semitism in the South. After her synagogue is bombed, Miss Daisy realizes that she is also a victim of prejudice. Hoke recounts his memory of his best friend’s father being lynched when he was young and the racism he’s experienced. Miss Daisy buys tickets to a dinner at which Dr. Martin Luther King, someone she admires, will speak. She initially invites Boolie to the dinner, but he declines, worried how that would appear to his business associates. Boolie suggests she ask Hoke. Hoke is offended that she waited until the car ride over to it to ask him, so she goes alone, while he watches it by himself on television.

MVPR announces Aug. 3 movie The Mount Vernon Parks and Recreation Department is happy to announce that the next film in the 2019 Movies at Riverbend Park outdoor movie series is How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World. It will be shown on Saturday, August 3. The movie is sponsored by the Greater Mount Vernon Association. Admission is free. The movie will start at sundown. Please contact 812-838-3691 or with any questions.

Things come to a head when Hoke arrives at the house one morning in 1971 to find Miss Daisy agitated and showing signs of dementia. She believes she is a young teacher again and runs around the room looking for the papers she graded and needs to pass back to her students. Hoke calms her down with a conversation in which Daisy calls Hoke her “best friend.” Boolie puts her into a nursing home and prepares to sell her house. As the play ends in 1973, Boolie takes the aging, sight-challenged Hoke to the nursing home for a Thanksgiving visit with Miss Daisy, now 97, and failing. Their conversation as he feeds her a slice of pumpkin pie is moving and builds to an emotional finale. June Ballinger is Daisy. She was last at New Harmony Theatre in “Outside Mullingar” and has appeared on Saturday Night Live and Law and Order among other things. She is terrific as the crotchety old lady, in the role Jessica Tandy made famous and won a Best Actress Oscar and Golden Globe for in the movie. Boolie was sweetly portrayed by Larry Tobias, also a veteran NHT actor, having appeared in “Cotton Patch Gospel.” Dan Aykroyd played that role in the movie, which won Best Picture at the Oscars and Golden Globes in 1990. Ron Himes was magnificent as Hoke. Himes is new to NHT, but has a list of acting credentials a mile long in the program book. His performance could hold a candle to Morgan Freeman, who was Hoke in the film and original Off-Broadway production. All three actors received a standing ovation for their wow performances at the Friday night opening. University of Southern Indiana faculty member Paul Weimer is the scenic designer who utilized this wonderful imaginary car setup on a turntable. The simple stage setting featured a panorama of scenes projected on a backdrop that enhanced the feel of the time period. Maya Michele Fein added to the feel as the lighting designer. Costumes by Shan Jensen, involved a lot of old lady clothes, like nightgowns and shawls, but her fur stole was to die for. There were nice attentive touches to the men’s clothes, including a Christmas corsage on Hoke’s topcoat during the holiday season. Kevin Gray worked as sound designer and had great musical interludes, like “Santa Baby” and “Twilight Time.” Stage Manager is Ben Shipley and the production was directed by NHT Director Elliot Wasserman. This production was underwritten by New Harmony’s own Alice Hertli and Laurie and Kent Parker. I appreciate their efforts to bring good theatre to town. The season is over for this year and it was one of the best, all three plays revolving around the theme of friendship.

JULY 30, 2019

How did God’s name become a curse word in America?

B B  C Does art imitate life or does entertainment plant certain ideas, words and phrases, in you and your children’s mind? Do the words and actions you hear and visualize have a consequence? I want to take a look at how entertainment has used the Lord’s name in vain and turned it into a common swear word. This won’t be a popular message, but I truly feel that God has put this on my heart to share with anyone who will listen. You have probably become confused, angry, annoyed, or maybe even concerned after reading the opening paragraph to this piece. Exodus 20:7 tells us: “Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in Vain; for the Lord will not hold him guiltless that taketh His name in Vain.” Merrian-Webster defines vain as: 1. Having or showing undue or excessive pride in one’s appearance or achievements, 2. Marked by futility or ineffectualness, 3. Having no real value, 4. Archaic. Synonyms such as: Conceited, unsuccessful, useless, worthless, idle, foolish, irreverent, blasphemous and silly are used. I ponder, looking to the secular world of entertainment and consider why a group of people who claim that Jesus is a fairy tail would use His name in such great quantity and anger. It has become so acceptable in modern culture to use the Most High’s name as a swear word that you probably hear Christians do the same. I digress, how would America feel if movies began using the gods of Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism, New Age, etc. in vain? This would

be labeled as hate speech. Maybe you still haven’t been moved, yet. What if movies and songs began taking the name of the person, animal or thing in life you loved most and began mocking? What if movies and songs began cursing, making fun of, or talking ugly and without care in reference to your family, child, or spouse? Would you stay in that movie theatre/concert, or would you walk out? Christians, you are not going to like this paragraph. How many of you say the name Jesus, his full name, or any variation when you become angry? How many of you speak the name of the creator when you’re annoyed, irritated, or even as interjections in speech? Have you ever said the word Holy and followed it by an unclean word when you were surprised? Most Christians would like to think they have never spoke blasphemous words. Think back in your life, some as soon as earlier today. Have you said, “Oh my (followed by the name God, Jesus, or one of the aforementioned names with a curse word)? Have you sung a popular song that uses God’s name in a vain way? Does the Holy Bible change because of the year, entertainment, or trends in popularity? Hebrews 13:8 says: “Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.” The use of the Lord’s name is to be used cautiously and humbly. The names: “Holy Spirit, Jesus, God, and I Am,” are names to be said with great respect, love and admiration. I won’t bore you with statistics and tell you how many times movies and songs get away with blasphemy in today’s world. Instead, carry a notebook from morning until bedtime and every time you hear the name of God used in terms that at-

tempt to decrease His value, make a tick mark. At the end of the day, count how many tick marks you have and look at the sources speaking the words. Are you surprised? I remember thinking; this blitz of the use of blasphemy in dialogue has to be a new thing in entertainment because I don’t remember this from when I was a child. Well, I heard the words occasionally, but were they in PG-13 movies over 30 years ago? My family and I have begun watching classic movies from my childhood with our daughter. We watched a popular time travel movie from the 1980’s that was geared towards children. I was surprised to hear the Lord’s name taken in vain several times in the first few minutes of the movie. It was literally saying this word for the sake of saying it. The words and phrases added no value to the movie, but they were sprinkled throughout the beginning of the flick. America is a country with a constitution that gives us the freedom of speech and religion. These rights give Christians and everyone else the liberty to speak their mind and worship as they see fit. These rights are not afforded all over the planet. Some people in other areas of the world are put to death when they profess being a Christian. I think it would be naïve to think that entertainment has no effect on our behavior, vocabulary and how we view comedy. Clothing trends change as entertainment dictates. Our television and social media teaches us which songs we like, what people we think are attractive and what’s acceptable in today’s society. Do you remember what life was like before the television was on from morning to night, or a phone dinged all day to give you notifica-

tions of the latest gossip? Do you remember a time when going to the theatre or a concert was a treat that was reserved for select occasions? The enemy is not uneducated and he studies your life. Just as a football team watches film on their opponent, to attack weakness and understand tendencies, the enemy studies people. As 1 Peter 5:8 says, “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour.” While movies, music, video games, and social media can be fun and even used for good clean family time, they can also be perverted. They can also steal years from our life and destroy families and friendship. They can become idols. An idol is defined as an image or representation of a god used as an object of worship. As 1 John 5:21 says, “Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen.” If you are like many people in this world, you have said the Lord’s name in vain, probably more than once, probably a lot more than once. How can you say you love Jesus on Sunday and use His name in vain throughout the week? Worse yet, how can you teach your children or grandchildren to continue the cycle? This message was not written to spread hate, but rather show loving reproof to Christians who have been deceived by the entertainment industry. I have had loving reproof showed to me and it has changed me for the better. This message was to open the eyes of the non-Christian and give them something to think about in regards to entertainment, communication and social interactions. If you constantly use a name that you believe has no meaning, why would you say even say the word? Even further,

why would the powers of this world put such an effort into getting you to say these words? Questioning why you are taught to take the Lord’s name in vain could be your first step in seeking out a relationship with Christ. If you are already a Christian, it could deepen your faith. It could lead to repentance, which is a changing of your heart towards sin. Sin is not trendy, fun, or exciting. It is ugly. We have to be able to identify sin and work towards a repenting heart. When we realize that we are sinners and don’t deserve to go to Heaven based on our own merits, we understand that we need a savior. Jesus (God) came to Earth as a man, faced every temptation as you and I. He performed miracles and fulfilled prophecy from the Old Testament. He was persecuted, tortured and crucified on our behalf. He paid the debt for our sin. He defeated death. Jesus resurrected from the tomb. His perfect life, and sacrifice was done to give example on how to live and also as a payment for our sin. Jesus went back to be with the Father, but left us with the Comforter which is the Holy Ghost. The Holy Ghost shall teach us all things, and bring all things to our remembrance. Romans 10:9-10 says that “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. There is so much power in the tongue. It can tear people down, or build people up. It can lead to the worship of God, or it can take his name in vain. Make your choice today and prevent our children from making the same mistake of taking the Lord’s name in vain.

Sermon of the Week: I Am Not My Own Pastor Rick Sellers When I was growing up I heard Elvis Presley singing “I Did It My Way.” Today, everyone wants to “do it my way.” Self-help & motivational books are heavy on being the strong person you were meant to be. There are even those televangelists who preach a prosperity message because “God wants this for everyone!” It is no wonder so many feel like they don’t measure up. All this may sound good but is it? Afterall, we all deserve to have our independence, right? Our American culture has taught us this selfsufficiency and independence which, in some respects is good because we become stronger people, however, this idea of independence also has a dangerous downside. As we grow older, we discover that some things do not come as easy for us as it once did. Driving for example, is one privileged activity that we hold onto because it represents independence. But driving is a privilege that comes with a lot of responsibility. When our ability to drive becomes a danger to ourselves and others, it becomes necessary to hand over the keys. This is often the first step to giving up our independence. Ouch! When we get married, according to the design set out by our Creator, we sacrifice self for our life-time mate. We are no longer our own, everything about our lives changes because we are giving ourselves to someone else. All the decisions we once made while single, now must be

made according to our new commitment to our spouse. While this may sound strange, considering our culture our independence, it brings blessing. We are not giving up anything, but rather we are gaining so much more in return, the blessing of spending our lives with someone so special that we want nothing else but to spend our lives with this other person. Far too many marriages fall apart due to the failure to commitment and sacrifice. What would it look like if a man and woman, joined together and completely gave themselves to each other? The marriage would grow stronger! We are no longer our own, but we belong to each other. Yes, we now sacrifice independence for the love of our spouse. We no longer belong to ourselves but everything about us now is “owned” by our spouse. The problem exists because too many do not want to make the sacrifice of self for anyone, not even our spouse. I realize this probably sounds ludicrous but step away from our culture and see what God tells us in His Word and you will see how marvelous this is. We learn from both the Old and the New Testaments the perfect plan for the union of marriage. Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh. – Genesis 2:24 (NKJV) 4 And He (Jesus) answered and said to them, “Have you not read that He who made them at the beginning ‘made them male and female,’ 5 and said, ‘For this reason a man

shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’? 6 So then, they are no longer two but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate.” – Matthew 19:4-6 (NKJV) Did you catch that? Jesus reminds us that we are to leave mother and father and be joined as husband and wife. “…and the two shall become one flesh.” This clearly, in part, describes the sexual relationship between a husband and wife, which by God’s design unifies the couple as one. Part of the problem exists because so many are unwilling to practice biblical values in relationships. Too many are involved with sexual relationships outside of marriage therefore the commitment and sacrifice as our Creator designed it has become devalued. 22 Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord. 23 For the husband is head of the wife, as also Christ is head of the church; and He

is the Savior of the body. 24 Therefore, just as the church is subject to Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in everything. 25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her, 26 that He might sanctify and cleanse her with the washing of water by the word, 27 that He might present her to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish. 28 So husbands ought to love their own wives as their own bodies; he who loves his wife loves himself. 29 For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as the Lord does the church. 30 For we are members of His body, of His flesh and of His bones. – Ephesians 5:22-30 (NKJV) The marriage vows are so much more than something spoken at a wedding. The vows are an expression of a serious commitment to each other. God uses the marriage of a man and woman to il-

lustration our relationship we have with Him. From His Word we discover that becoming a member of the family of God means so much more than joining a church and “escaping hell.” When we enter into a relationship with Jesus Christ, we sacrifice self for our Lord. We are no longer our own. We are purchased with the blood of Jesus Christ and become intimately involved with God through Jesus Christ. We become a new creation. We are children of the King. The follower of Jesus Christ goes from independence (a self-indulgent life) to dependence (Kingdom focused life). We go from depending on our own, to trusting God. We become dependent on God our Father to meet our every need. We make the greater sacrifice of living a life for Him because Jesus Christ died for our sins. It was Jesus Christ paid the greatest price to make this relationship possible. Jesus sacrificed His home in heaven when He came to this world to take on our sin and die a

criminal’s death. He did not have to do this, but He did! Jesus made the decision to redeem every human being because His love for us was just that great. Love requires much. Jesus gave much. If we have had that kind of sacrifice made on our behalf, would it not make sense that we place our full trust and confidence in Him? While giving up independence we are learning to trust God in every part of our lives. I believe every single WORD in the Bible. I believe that Jesus died for my sin and yours. I believe that Jesus wants to make your life complete. If you would like to know more about going from selfsufficiency to God sufficiency, please talk to someone who will rely only on the Bible. There is no other book that can be trusted. I would be happy to share this great news with you and show you how you too can experience full reliance on Jesus Christ.

Emma remarked. Chastity said there was lamb sausage and beans every breakfast, but â&#x20AC;&#x153;that was something I was â&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not very adventurous with not quite used to eating.

Both said the fruits were fantastic at breakfast, such arge sweet oranges. as mangoes, bananas and large grass They traveled in jeeps, especially through the grasslands, and observed many classic African animals. A fun memory was racing a herd of wildebeests alongside the jeep. Golden and Blue Wildebeests, Zebras, Eland, Kudus, Steenbok, Blesbok, and Impalas were among the hoofed animals viewed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Steenbok are comical.

Emma laughed when her mother did her imitation of the Count on television. Their travel group passed several hippos in the nearby

water, with three babies swimming around, which Chastity described as â&#x20AC;&#x153;so cute, but we made sure we were careful. They looked like they might approach us.â&#x20AC;? At Marataba Reserve, they were able to see Rhinos. Elephants were not co â&#x20AC;&#x153;Elephants common where we were, so we drove several hours north to a park with hundreds of protected acres. We did not ssee any, but we were able to see the damage they did on a rampage,â&#x20AC;? Chastity recounted. Emma rode an elephant on a thirty minute trail ride which she said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;was a bit scary, but fun.â&#x20AC;? With the help of Attie, her 52-year-old English-speaking guide, Emma was able to harvest three animals on the hunts. One was a Steenbok taken at 50 yards, a Blesbok at 35 yards, and a Warthog at 50 yards. She has been practicing sighting with her 1 17 and 22 caliber rifles for years with her grandfather, who has been hunting big game for a long time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She has pr practiced shot placement and lining up the scope to mak make all the adjustments she needs a lot. Her gun safety is impeccable. She is so calm and collected and to together that it just amazes me,â&#x20AC;? Chastity recalled. The hunting p party says a prayer to the animal in tthanks for its meat and takes a picture with it. In all the pictures, a butterfly charm is attached to a horn or body part in memory of Danielle Stokes, Emmaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s deceased aunt. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We left it in Africa after the trip was ov over,â&#x20AC;? Chastity said sadly, thinking of her beloved sister. The me meat from all the animals the party took was eaten eat at night at dinner or donated to nearby refuge refugee camps. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is poverty there unlike anything Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever seen before,â&#x20AC;? Chastity noted. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We saw refugees everywhere walking along the road w with wood bundles on their head or carrying water. wat Many live in huge refugee towns. They do donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t look sad, just so happy to be out from under where they were.â&#x20AC;? In more urban areas, Chastity said Kentucky Fried Chicken is everywhere. The nearest city to them was Laphalal Laphalale and they had a McDonalds. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They love their Dr. Pepper over there and Double Bubble Gum.â&#x20AC;? Toyotas are the main vehicles. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They drive on the left side there there,â&#x20AC;? Emma chimed in. No rain fell while on th the trip, as it is the dry season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It did get chilly at night. The air is so dry!â&#x20AC;? Other fun times were spent when they tra travelled to see mountain sunsets, stood on the Tropic of Cap Capricorn, and even had a Spa Day. A videographer made a record of the trip and will send it to them when complete completed so they can enjoy the magic moments all over again. A An exporter will process all the hunt records and permits and ship the head and shoulder mounts or skull mounts fr from the beasts back to them. Both Emma and Chastity said they would go back in a heartbeat, they just didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like the long plane ride. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a special place. From the moment the plane landed and I looked around, you could just feel a natural connection or pull. It was the pull of the land we all originated from,â&#x20AC;? Chastity said philosophically.

JULY 30, 2019

Looking out for us...


During the past week, I was blessed with sharing two special days: one spent with special friends, the other with two of my oh-sospecial granddaughters. I spent one day in Louisville with the children and grandchildren of my friend, Bill. A scholarship has been set up in his honor and, on this day, the ďŹ rst scholarship was presented to a deserving up-and-coming young man in the cattle industry. Except for the special presentation, the day itself was pretty boring: we spent about six hours watching scores of young people show their cattle, hoping for that precious ďŹ rst place and champion ribbon, announcing to those attending the show, and all the folks back home, that they are the best of the best. But in those hours of waiting for the presentation of the award and an awesome belt buckle (belt buckles are the holy grail of awards for cattle showmen and women â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the glitzier and glamier, the better â&#x20AC;&#x201C; for both males and females.), conversation ebbed and ďŹ&#x201A;owed with me, Billâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s son and daughter, her husband, and her three children. Memories were shared, memories were made, and much laughter erupted from our place high in the stands of the arena. The very next day was spent celebrating the sixth birthday of my youngest granddaughter,

Presley. I try to spend a day with each grandchild, providing an experience instead of just a gift (although gifts are also involved.). The special birthday girl gets some hand in picking the activity. Presleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ďŹ rst choice was spending the day at Disney World. Sorry, girl, that oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on your mom and dad. A couple of other choices were given and she happily chose our local Mesker Park Zoo. What a great day we had. Her only other request was that older sister, Oakley, should join us, too. Done. We had an amazing day. The weather cooperated â&#x20AC;&#x201C; woo hoo. It was summer-warm, but fairly low humidity (for late July) kept the day tolerable, even while climbing up and down those hills. Along with seeing all the animals at least once, we also managed to ďŹ t in some of the special activities available. We took part in the one-act â&#x20AC;&#x153;Three Billy Goats GruďŹ&#x20AC;â&#x20AC;? presented in the childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s activity area, with Oakley doing an awesome rendition of the troll who lived under the bridge, and Presley and I doing some decent representations of the billy goats trip-trip-tripping across the bridge. Giggles and fun were had by all. The girls rode the bumper boats in the water surrounding the former monkey ship. They were the only two in the water at the time, but that didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stop them from frequently bumping into each other and the ship. Next stop â&#x20AC;&#x201C; after visiting more animal exhibits â&#x20AC;&#x201C; was the paddle boats. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a very

long time since I rode the paddle boats. Oakley and I were the Uber driver for Presley, carefully steering the boat around the lake. We even managed to get close enough to one of the spraying fountains to cool oďŹ&#x20AC; a bit; Presley was a bit toasty underneath her life jacket. We rode the tram â&#x20AC;&#x201C; twice. This gave us a bit of a break from climbing all those hills and let us see parts of the zoo still to be seen by an up close and personal visit from us. And who doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like riding a tram? Super cool, according to me. I think the girls liked it, too. And we canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t forget the carousel. Presley and Oakley carefully chose an animal to bob up and down on in a circle. Twice. Lots of laughter here. The girls also enjoyed the water feature near the entrance to the zoo. Presley went in fully clothed and completely soaked her clothes, shoes and sock. Sorry, Laura, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll replace the shoes if necessary. Oakley, a bit more sedately, carefully removed her shoes and decided not to sit on the water shooting up from the ground. Presley dripped pools of water for over an hour, even with frequent wringing of her clothes. Luckily, the warm day kept any complaints of being cold and wet. We ate â&#x20AC;&#x201C; several times. Frozen ices, hot dogs, French Fries, water, juice, fruit (need at least a little bit of good food, even on a celebration day.). And stopped for ice cream on the way home. We opened the zoo and we were

among the last to leave, causing Laura to text when I might be returning home with the girls. Oops, sorry, Laura, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re on our way. Maybe we spent too much time in the gift shop? I had a blast with the girls, and I think they had a great time, too. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all about the time together, right?. And both days shared something else very special, besides the special times spent together. A cardinal appeared on both days: one in the parking lot in Louisville, and another followed us around the zoo â&#x20AC;&#x201C; we saw this bird six or seven times. It is believed by some that our deceased loved ones never leave us. Their spirits, in the guise of a cardinal, are said to make visits to protect us, guide us, provide us comfort, and to let us know they are always around. I have no way of knowing if this is, in fact, true. Oakley and Presley knew of the belief. They recently lost their grandfather, and are sure he was visiting the zoo with us. When I see a cardinal, I like to believe itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s my mom, stopping by to say â&#x20AC;&#x153;hello.â&#x20AC;? The cardinal in Louisville? Perhaps Bill was letting me know that he was with us in the show ring that day, proud of the scholarship presented by his children in his honor to a deserving young man that afternoon. We may never know, but at the very least, we think about those special loved ones in our lives that we have lost too soon when we spot the beautiful cardinal. And for me, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all that matters.

Letters to the Editor Thank you North Posey Youth Club Every July for the past several years, the North Posey Youth Club has been putting on a baseball tournament in Poseyville. The tournament covers several age groups from six-12 years old. This tournament not only gives our local youth the opportunity to play a tournament on their own ďŹ elds making it easier for siblings, parents, grandparents, and friends to come watch them play; it also brings several teams from all over the tri-state to our community and spend money with our local businesses.

Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d just like to take a moment and publicly thank all of the volunteers who donated their time and talents to help make this tournament a success. The visiting teams and parents continue to be impressed with the quality facilities, parking, and cleanliness our sports park oďŹ&#x20AC;ers. The team of volunteers put in tons of time throughout the summer to keep these ďŹ elds in the best condition as possible to give our youth a great playing experience. Our community is blessed to have these facilities and to have the com-

mitment of our local parents to keep them in great condition. This tournament is sort of the celebration of the yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Spring/Summer baseball season. A big shout out of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thanksâ&#x20AC;? to all the volunteers that make it such a success: Layne Motz, Nick and Kayla Pierce, Chris Wolsiefer, Brad Elpers, Clint Weatherholt, Michael Rhodes, Roddy Blaylock, Gary Voegel, Dave Straw, JeďŹ&#x20AC; Lupfer, Mike Wilson, Rusty Seymour, and all of the coaches. Sincere Appreciation, GeoďŹ&#x20AC; Gentil

Social Media - Too Much? How Much?

M V  B D . G  M 

Social media is just like momâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s apple pie, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not good to eat a whole pie every day. Over three billion people are social media users worldwide. While social media helps keep the world connected, social media addiction is becoming a global problem that keeps growing. As of 2018, one third of the global population used social media. Internet and social media addictions continue to grow as our dependence on technology increases. Over 210 million people suďŹ&#x20AC;er from internet and social media addictions worldwide. A 2018 study found that teens who spend ďŹ ve hours per day using their phones were almost

twice as likely to exhibit depressive symptoms than counterparts who dedicated only one hour on their phones. The relationship between excessive mobile use and depression appears to be strongly inked to gender with 58 percent more females than males experiencing depressive symptoms. A recent study containing over 23,500 participants between the ages of 16 and 88 found that being a young single female was most strongly associated with displaying addictive social media behavior. Addictive social media behavior was also strongly related to narcissistic personality traits and low selfesteem. Social media addiction doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just aďŹ&#x20AC;ect behavior during the day; it even damages the ability to sleep. A study found that 71 percent of Americans sleep with or next to a mobile

device. Some 47 million people in America do not get enough sleep and 55 percent more teens were sleep deprived in 2015 than in 1991. Exposure to screens before bed is a large factor in exacerbating sleep disorders. Thirty-ďŹ ve percent of people using phones less than average experienced sleep diďŹ&#x192;culty compared to 42 percent of those with average or above average phone usage. Forty-ďŹ ve percent of people check social media instead of sleeping and roughly 10 percent of teens check their phones more ten 10 times per night. Fifty percent of people driving are checking social media. 90 percent of drivers admit to using smartphones behind the wheel. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention reports that each day nine people are killed and more than 1,000 are injured as a result of smartphone use

while driving. According to the National Highway TraďŹ&#x192;c Safety Administration, teens are the largest group reported for distracted driving. Over 240 million Americans check Facebook daily or 74 percent of all Americans. The majority of Americans use Facebook and most users check the app daily. Approximately 68 percent of Americans have an account and 51percent report checking Facebook several times daily. Question - is it possible you might accomplish more of what you want and need to do if you would spend less time on social media? Another question - Is social media making you a better and happier person? Is it possible you should cut back on your daily portion of social media?

Guest Column: By Michael James Barton Offshore drilling enhances national security A federal judge recently dealt a blow to the economy and our nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s security. Sharon Gleason, a district court judge in Alaska, blocked one of President Trumpâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s executive orders that seeks to expand oďŹ&#x20AC;shore oil and natural gas drilling. In response to the ruling, the administration indeďŹ nitely delayed its rollout of a ďŹ ve-year plan to spur oďŹ&#x20AC;shore energy development in the Gulf of Mexico as well as the Atlantic and Arctic oceans. This delay will prevent American energy companies from extracting our oďŹ&#x20AC;shore oil and gas riches. Workers will lose out on job opportunities. And the nation will lose out on valuable sources of fuel that could reduce our reliance on hostile petrostates like Venezuela and Russia. A few months after taking oďŹ&#x192;ce, President Trump signed an executive order opening federal oďŹ&#x20AC;shore territories to energy exploration. Ever since, the Interior Department has been working on a plan to open up much of the â&#x20AC;&#x153;outer continental shelf,â&#x20AC;? the undersea land between three and 200 miles oďŹ&#x20AC; the coasts, to development. Nearly 90 billion barrels of oil and 328 trillion cubic feet of natural gas may lie beneath the outer

continental shelf - enough to heat America for two full years. The United States is on the cusp of complete energy independence - a goal that seemed an impossible just a decade ago. Advances in the drilling technique known as fracking have enabled companies to tap previously inaccessible oil and natural gas deposits trapped in underground shale rock formations. From 2010 to 2017, oil production shot up more than 70 percent. Thanks to this fracking boom, the United States has reduced its reliance on hostile or unstable oil-rich nations. Last year, oil imports from Saudi Arabia reached their lowest levels since the 1980s. However, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not completely independent yet. Saudi Arabia and Iraq are still among the top ďŹ ve sources of U.S. petroleum imports. Venezuela and Russia remain in the top 10. OďŹ&#x20AC;shore energy could enable us to break our foreign oil habit once and for all. OďŹ&#x20AC;shore production accounted for 16 percent of all U.S. crude oil production in 2018, increased by about 30 percent between 2013 and 2017, and is now pushing 1.7 million barrels per day.

Expanding drilling to areas of the outer continental shelf would raise that ďŹ gure substantially. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d also create 840,000 jobs and generate a cumulative $200 billion in government revenue by 2035. Environmental activists have scared people into believing that oďŹ&#x20AC;shore drilling is unsafe. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s simply not true. Since 2010, the oil and natural gas industry has revised or implemented more than 100 new safety regulations to protect against spills. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no good reason for the administration to stall its oďŹ&#x20AC;shore expansion plan. Judge Gleasonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ruling will likely be overturned. Workers are eager to tap Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s immense oďŹ&#x20AC;shore oil wealth and put the nation on the path to full energy independence. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to let them.

Special Consul Robert Mueller testiďŹ ed before Congress on July 24, 2019. During his six hours of testimony before the House Judiciary Committee the major emphasis shifted from concerns about the outcome of the 2016 presidential election to attempts by foreign countries to inďŹ&#x201A;uence all of our elections. Mueller testiďŹ ed that for many years and right up to our next election cycle in 2020 several foreign entities were involving them-

selves in our democracy. And while Mueller speciďŹ ed only Russia for 2016 he made it clear that we should be aware of other actors. Iran, Israel and even our ďŹ rst cousins the British, among numerous others, have sought to inveigle themselves into our governmental decisions. We have often been subtlety and sometimes not so subtlety nudged toward or away from war or toward or away from alliances with other countries. The favored techniques in days before the internet were the planting of fake newspaper stories or biased books and movies. Today spy dossiers or misleading memes and tweets over the internet are the preferred methods. M  E 


But if the aim of a foreign country is to defame or embarrass a politician it seems silly to dispense dirty secrets or even create false ones when such disclosures and prejudiced articles appear in the newspapers and on television every day. For example, if a country wanted to defame Donald Trump it should just encourage Americans to read The New York Times or watch CNN. And if a foreign entity wished to bring down Hillary Clinton it should republish stories from The National Enquirer or push FOX News. There is no need for foreign attempts to bring down a candidate for public oďŹ&#x192;ce when we do such a thorough job of that ourselves. What is even more perplexing is why any S  W   C  M   T  B

foreign country cares about our elections when we care so little about the outcomes ourselves. About 40% of eligible voters do not vote in presidential elections and only about 40% trouble themselves to vote in midterm national elections. And when it comes to state, county and city elections most of the voters are those hoping to get jobs from the winners. The bottom line may be that foreign entities are often more concerned with the outcomes of our elections than we are. Maybe we should learn from them.

S Gibson 15U go undefeated in pool play, fall short in semifinal By Chris Morlan The South Gibson 15U All-Star team played at the Babe Ruth Ohio Valley Regional last weekend in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. South Gibson breezed through their first three games of pool play to advance to the tournament round. Okolona from Kentucky sent South Gibson home in the semifinals by the score of 11-0. This was a great run by the South Gibson All-Stars, and they were two games away from a chance to play in the Babe Ruth World Series in Longview, Washington in two weeks from now. Last Friday evening, South Gibson played their first game of the tournament against Reedsburg. South Gibson scored three runs in the first inning to coast to a 7-2 win. Reedsburg could not recover from South Gibson’s explosive first inning. Jake Will and Bryce Humphery led the way for the

South Gibson All-Star team. Will went two for four at the plate with a double and a run scored. Humphery went two for four with a run scored and a stolen base. Hayden Huss went one for four hitting with a double and a run scored. Nathan VanBibber went one for three hitting with a double. Tyler Brown walked two times, hit by a pitch one other time and scored a run. Reagan Farmer went one for three at the plate and scored a run. During their first game last Saturday, South Gibson beat Downers Grove 6-0. In their final pool play game, South Gibson edged Schererville 11-10 in nine innings. The win against Schererville helped South Gibson stay unbeaten in pool play and advance to the playoff round. A lot of hitting was displayed by South Gibson. This game almost looked like a football score. As a team, South Gibson had twelve

hits for the game. At the plate, Bryce Humphery went three for six with a double and two runs scored. Tyler Brown went three for six with a double and scored two runs. Jake Will went two for six with a double and scored a run. Hayden Huss went one for six hitting. Noah Bryant went one for five at the plate. Nathan VanBibber went one for four with a walk, one run scored and hit by a pitch. Brandt Elpers had one walk and scored a run, while Reagan Farmer had a walk, scored a run and was hit by a pitch. South Gibson beat Logansport 5-3 in the quarterfinal round last Sunday morning. In the semifinal round, South Gibson was eliminated from the tournament 11-0 in a loss against Okolona. This was the first loss South Gibson took during the all-star season. South Gibson finished the summer with six wins and one loss.

Legals 2019-131 NOTICE OF REAL PROPERTY TAX SALE Posey County Indiana Beginning 10:00 AM, 9/05/2019 Hovey House, Commissioners’ Room Local Time Posey County Pursuant to the laws of the Indiana General Assembly, notice is hereby given that the following described property is listed for sale for delinquent taxes and/or special assessments. The county auditor and county treasurer will apply on or after 8/19/2019 for a court judgment against the tracts or real property for an amount that is not less than the amount set out below and for an order to sell the tracts or real property at public auction to the highest bidder, subject to the right of redemption. Any defense to the application for judgment must be filed with the Posey County Circuit Court and served on the county auditor and treasurer before 8/19/2019. The court will set a date for a hearing at least seven (7) days before the advertised date of sale and the court will determine any defenses to the application for judgment at the hearing. The county auditor and the county treasurer are entitled to receive all pleadings, motions, petitions, and other filings related to the defense to the application for judgment. Such sale will be held on 9/05/2019 at the Hovey House, Commissioners’ Room and that sale will continue until all tracts and real property have been offered for sale. Property will not be sold for an amount which is less than the sum of: (A) the delinquent taxes and special assessments on each tract or item of real property; and (B) the taxes and special assessments on the real property that are due and payable in the year of the sale, whether or not they are delinquent; and (C) all penalties due on the delinquencies, and (D) an amount prescribed by the county auditor that equals the sum of: (1) twenty-five dollars ($25) for postage and publication costs; and (2) any other costs incurred by the county that are directly attributable to the tax sale; and (E) any unpaid costs due under IC 6-1.1-24-2(c) from a prior tax sale. No property listed below shall be sold if, at any time before the sale, the Total Amount for Judgment is paid in full. If the real property is sold in the tax sale, the amount required to redeem such property will be 110% of the minimum bid for which the tract or real property was offered at the time of sale, if redeemed not more than six (6) months after the date of sale, or 115% of the minimum bid for which the tract or real property was offered at the time of sale, if redeemed more than six (6) months after the date of sale, plus the amount by which the purchase price exceeds the minimum bid on the real property plus five percent (5%) per annum interest on the amount by which the purchase price exceeds the minimum bid on the property. All taxes and special assessments upon the property paid by the purchaser subsequent to the sale, plus five percent (5%) per annum interest on those taxes and special assessments, will also be required to be paid to redeem such property. In addition, IC 6-1.1-25-2 (e) states the total amount required for redemption may include the following costs incurred and paid by the purchaser or the purchaser’s assignee or the county before redemption: (1) The attorney’s fees and cost of giving notice under IC 6-1.1-25-4.5; (2) The costs of title search or examining and update the abstract of title for the tract or item of real property. The period of redemption shall expire on Tuesday, September 08, 2020 for certificates sold in the tax sale. For certificates struck to the county, the period of redemption may expire Friday, January 03, 2020. If the tract or item of real property is sold for an amount more than the minimum bid and the property is not redeemed, the owner of record of the property who is divested of ownership at the time the tax deed is issued may have a right to the tax sale surplus. The Auditor and Treasurer specifically reserve the right to withhold from the sale any parcel which has been listed in error, or which otherwise becomes ineligible for sale either prior to 9/05/2019 or during the duration of the sale. This notice of real property tax sale, and the tax sale itself are undertaken and will be conducted pursuant to the requirements of the laws of the State of Indiana which regulate the sale of land for delinquent taxes, pursuant to I.C. 6-1.1-24-1 et seq. The County does not warrant the accuracy of the street address or common description of the property, and a misstatement in the key number or street address does not invalidate an otherwise valid sale. Minimum bid amounts are prescribed by law and are subject to change prior to the auction date. Pursuant to IC 6-1.1-24-3(e), property descriptions may be omitted for properties appearing on the certified list in consecutive years. A complete property list may be obtained at or in an alternative form upon request. Dated: 7/17/2019 Registration For Bidding On the

Flash Droughts: Not DC Superheroes The Boom Project: evolved, the focus has become more on local ground conditions and less on contoured maps of precipitation data. Agricultural droughts, as defined by the United States Drought Monitor, are considered more short-lived than the hydrologic droughts that affect municipal water supplies and river barge traffic. All flash droughts are agricultural droughts, but not all agricultural droughts are flash droughts. In the past week, portions of northern Indiana have been marked as abnormally dry. Further deterioration is expected. Luckily or unluckily, southern Indiana has seen more rain in the recent past than our northern neighbors. However, we are still prone to dry spells that may set in rather quickly, particularly in August. If rains continue, we may see a good harvest and lush lawns into the fall. If not, irrigation rigs will begin running, and homeowners will want to

By Hans Schmitz This year has not been a dry year, which makes our plants more prone to temporary periods of dryness. Traditional droughts take weeks to appear, usually months, and dissipate slowly as well. Flash droughts, meanwhile, can appear in a week under the right conditions, namely very high temperatures with lower humidity. When plants are rooted shallow and late in growth stage, those conditions can cause plant stress quickly. Droughts have been recognized for centuries as hazardous phenomenon. The cause of the war in Syria in recent times has roots in water scarcity. Meanwhile, flash droughts are a relatively new event in name. The Glossary of Meteorologyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Second Edition, published in 2000, makes no mention of flash droughts. The closest term defined is â&#x20AC;&#x153;dry spell.â&#x20AC;? As organizations monitoring drought conditions have

start watering lawns at the rate of one inch every four to seven days. Daily watering promotes shallow root development and should be avoided unless necessary. The proper time to water plants is as early in the morning as possible, when the sun will dry plant leaves quickly to avoid disease spread. A flash drought has symptoms that are relatively easy to observe. Corn rolls leaves, making it look somewhat like a pineappleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leaves. Soybeans stop growing and close up their trifoliolate to prevent water loss. That effect makes a field look whitish green rather than a true green. Potted plants look wilted. Cool season lawns turn brown. Warm season lawns stay greener but stop vigorous growth. Keep an eye out and act accordingly if August turns dry. For more information, contact Hans at hschmitz@ or 812-838-1331.

Voices of a Generation

Please join us for a very special book launch and reading on Saturday, August 17, 2019 from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Mason-Nordgauer Fine Arts Gallery at 510 Main Street in New Harmony Indiana. Co-editors, Bonnie Omer Johnson and Kimberly Crum, will present â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Boom Project: Voices of a Generation,â&#x20AC;? a collection of stories, essays and poems by writers, born between 1946 and 1964, who have lived (or are living now) in communities along the Ohio River, between Pittsburgh, Pa., and Cairo, Ill. Crum and Johnson put

out a call for submissions across the Ohio River Valley for a new kind of collection, one that celebrates baby boomer experiences and perspectives. The result is an extraordinary anthology, filled with writing that is provocative, lush, witty, accessible, and universal. Contributors write about the river, home, cultural events, coming of age, and the coming of aging. These stories, essays, and poems are relatable to anyone who has ever searched for identity, connections, and a place to call home. Doors open at 7 p.m. and the presentation will begin at 7 p.m. A question / answer and book signing will follow. Presentation limited to 35 guests. Guests must be 21+. This is a free event; but, reservations are required. Please email our gallery at Appetizers and cash bar will also be available.
