Woman charged with theft as 3,000 jewelry pieces found By Dave Pearce Posey County Sheriff’s deputies arrested Tricia D. Schneider (age 38) of Evansville, Ind., for her alleged involvement in the burglary of a rural Posey County residence. On August 31, the Posey County Sheriff’s Department was called to a residence near Wadesville, on Damm Road; the owners of the residence came home to discover the home had been broken into. As the investigation progressed, information was gained that a stolen credit card was being used in the Evansville area. Deputies began to track the use of the stolen card and were able to capture an image of the suspect using the card on a
store security camera. The image was broadcast on local news stations and tips immediately began coming into the sheriff’s office. While following up on leads Friday morning, Detective Jeremy Fortune located an individual of interest in Evansville. When the detective approached and attempted to engage the person in conversation, the individual immediately ran, causing Detective Fortune to give chase. Fortune caught the individual after a short distance and took her into custody. The individual was identified as Tricia D. Schneider, a name that the sheriff’s department was given through several phone tips. In-
formation gained from Schneider ultimately lead to her arrest. This
investigation enabled Evansville Detectives to solve two other burglaries that were currently being investigated by the Evansville Police Department. The method of operation used by Schneider was to glean information from social media postings, where persons posted information about being out of town enjoying a vacation or being away from home for an extended period of time. Posey County Deputies traveled to a location in rural Warrick County were a number of stolen items were recovered. Schneider is currently lodged in the Posey County Jail and the case information was forwarded

the younger teachers. It is a one-time bonus to be paid out the second pay period in November. “When the school financing formula changed a few years ago, the teachers took a pay decrease, yet worked to keep our curriculum rigorous and strong. This will be the first increase in any form for our staff in six years. We worked hard to make sacrifices and build up our Rainy Day Fund and balances and now my concern is different,” said School Superintendent Tom Kopatich. “It is a must in the future that we look for dollars to be competitive with other school corporations to attract and keep great teachers.” As for the retirement incentive, Kopatich explained that several years ago the formula for school funding changed from property tax to sales tax called transition to base. This created a deficit in the General Fund of $4 million. The good news is that the district has ‘put a dent in the gap’ and seen the deficit decrease to just under a million dollars since that time. The district now has four years to reduce the remaining million dollar deficit in the General Fund. Ninety percent of the General Fund goes to salaries so Asst. Supt. of Finance Loren Evans did a complete salary study. It was established that to help close the gap, retirement incentives of $25,000 will be offered as a buyout agreement. Some 32 teachers will be eligible to retire by the state rule of 85 at the end of the school year. A minimum of 14 must agree to retire by February 1 to make it work out at a savings of $450,000 to the district. If the minimum is not reached, letters of intent to retire will be returned. “We will replace those positions with teachers starting at a lower pay scale and this will help close the gap. It also shows our staff we appreciate their hard work and sacrifices in the past” Kopatich explained. “On the down side, we do lose some very skilled professional teachers.” Kopatich thanked NEA Mount Vernon Bargaining Spokesperson Richard Jesch for all the hard work they put in together to achieve the accord. “Teachers and administrators would ride together to get things done in Indianapolis as a cooperative us team. It is good to be able to give the teachers something back,” said Board member Beth Higgins. “We were happy to see the stipend increase, but it’s unfortunate that we’ll have to give that back in increased health insurance premiums,” noted Jesch before signing the agreement.
to Posey County Prosecutor Travis Clowers, where official charges were issued. Schneider was charged with Theft, a Class D Felony along with a charge of taking over 3,000 pieces of jewelry from the home as well as credit cards, which she apparently was using in Evansville. Posey County Sheriff Greg Oeth warns that this should serve as a cautionary tale for avid social media users. “Far too often we deal with people who have simply allowed themselves to become victims of crime,” Oeth said. “We encourage everyone not to post information that is going to make them an easy target.”
Right into the fire,” said School Board President Kathy Weinzapfel, handing him a large packet of papers and memos. As the new initiate thumbed through the facts and figures, School Superintendent Tom Kopatich explained how Isaac was chosen to replace Brian Jeffries who went to the Mount Vernon Common Council. “The Board had a short time frame in which to work so we made a list of possible candidates. It had to be a person from
By Valerie Werkmeister New Harmony Town Council members met with members of the Harmony Way Bridge Commission for a special morning meeting, September 9. Council and bridge commission members as well as other citizens were allowed to voice their concerns during the meeting. Bridge commission members urged the council to consider buying the bridge to open eligibility to government funds and grants. Member Linda Henning addressed the council advising them that the commission’s goal is to transfer ownership to a government entity. “If you will consider the option to buy the bridge, we’re not going to leave you high and dry. We’ve done too much work not to continue to help with grants,” Henning stated. “We see this major asset sitting there and we just felt we had to do something about it,” she added. Henning presented a business proposal to council members that outlined the positive points of purchasing the bridge. She stated the property has been established for 80 years, produces an annual revenue of $250,000 $350,000 with the potential to increase that revenue by a toll or traffic increases. She added it carries the gas line, a valuable commodity, to the town of New Harmony. She explained that New Harmony

Isaac joins school board By Lois Mittino Gray Mark Isaac, the newest member of the Mount Vernon School Board, has had his hand in school activities for a long, long time. “I began stirring burgoo for Marrs Elementary School way before my daughter even started school there. She’s 20 now and I’m still stirring,” he said with a smile. He was reminiscing on an exciting night as he took his seat at his first board meeting on September 3, right after Loren Evans administered his Oath of Office. “Get ready because here we go.
Bishop discusses Holy Angels future By Lois Mittino Gray Bishop Charles Thompson came to New Harmony for a listening session with members of Holy Angels Catholic Church on Thursday night September 5 at the Catholic Community Center. He explained that this is the next step in a Strategic Planning Process that will lead to the reorganization of the 69 parishes in the Diocese of Evansville under his auspices by the end of this month. The cleric opened the meeting with a prayer for guidance and inspiration telling everyone to be
open-minded and respectful of all opinions and questions voiced freely that evening. Tim McGuire, Chief Operating Officer for the Diocese, gave a slideshow presentation with background facts on the plan to start things out. Discussion on the plan began formally in early 2012 with discerning teams, group reviews, and town hall meetings. The timeline calls for announcements on parish mergers in the Message Catholic newspaper and at press conferences as soon as possible, probably at the end of this month. Implementation for some is
slated to begin July 1, 2014 all the way to 2018 for others. McGuire explained that with demographic changes and lower priest numbers, it became necessary to determine how to properly use all diocesan resources to best meet the needs of the 85,000 Catholics in the diocese in the twenty-first century. “This is not unique to our diocese as this is being done right now in Indianapolis, Fort Wayne and Belleville, Ill., to name a few nearby,” he said.

‘Holy Angels’ continued from page 1A Since the 1970s when there was a surplus of priests, there has been a 60 percent decrease in numbers in the diocese from 110 to 45 priests to serve the 69 parishes. Many of these men are elderly at or over retirement age of 65. The pope has mandated that no parish priest may say more than three masses a weekend to keep them all of high quality. Bishop Thompson then spoke and reassured everyone that no churches will be closed at this time. “A church is the building, the bricks and mortar,” he explained. “A parish is the people. We may have to group people differently and change parish names.” Three options are available for each present parish. One is that it is large enough to stand alone as is with one priest assigned. Another is to link two or three parishes together with one priest assigned among them. They would retain their names and their finances and parish councils as separate entities. The last option is merged parishes in which two or more parishes combine into one parish council and one finance committee with one new parish name. “The name of the parish might change, but the church building names will remain the same,” the bishop said. The Bishop listened to comments and concerns of the Holy Angels members and talked about possibilities for its future with no concrete decision being made until the end of the month. Due to its small size, it will not stand alone or be linked, but most probably merged into another new parish not designated for sure as yet. The new pastor would determine how his three mass times will be spread out every weekend. “My concern is the Kingdom of God and the salvation of souls,” the affable and kind Bishop ‘Chuck,’ as he calls himself, mused. “I know this is stressful for some, but we want to meet the spiritual needs of everyone in the diocese as best as we can. This is our crunch time challenge and I would be a coward not to do anything.”

For anyone who hasn’t heard, Harmonie has expanded it’s trail system in the past years to include the growing sport of mountain biking. These new trails are available to hikers as well, so everyone can enjoy the new scenery. Trail days are an important aspect toward building and maintaining these trail systems. There currently exists around 10+ miles of new trail and more already planned out. This is where your help is needed. We need volunteers willing to help out and show support for the local trails. It takes a lot of effort by trail users just like you to get out and make it happen. September 15 at 9 a.m., there will be a trail day sponsored by Sheller’s Cycling and Fitness. Trail days consist of building and maintaining trails that all of us can enjoy. Experience is not a problem, everyone is welcome even if you have never been involved before. This is your chance to take part and feel a sense of ownership and pride of our trail system that is so vital to our community. Thanks to everyone who shows up.

Southern Drawl One day late in the summer, to be exact, it was the month of September, 2010, I was told that twelve women were gathered in Connie Koester’s kitchen, when she came up with the idea to have a free meal for anyone in the community. The following year on May 5, 2011, it became a reality. They decieded to call it ‘The Community Table’ and for the past 28-29 months, it has prospered. Connie pointed out that with the help of the people of Poseyville Christian, St. Francis Catholic, and St. Paul’s United Methodist churches, they usually serve

McConaughy (Newburgh), Henry Means (New Harmony), Laurie Miller (Zionsville), Gayle Nunn (Evansville), John Oilar (Crawfordsville), Landis Thompson (Henderson, Ky.), and Linda Volz (Mount Vernon). The reception and opening were held in conjunction with the New Harmony Summer Art and Antique Stroll. The sponsors for the exhibit are Robert and Ann Scarafia of New Harmony. The exhibit will be on display at the gallery located at 502 Church Street through September 12. Regular gallery hours are Thursday-Sunday, 1-4 p.m.; other times by appointment by calling the Director, Maggie Rapp, at 812-459-9851.

around 100-120 people in the St. Paul’s dining hall each Thursday from 5-6 p.m. They also deliver food to around 15-18 shut-ins. Friendly faces from all over, Poseyville, Wadesville, Stewardsville, Cynthiana, St. Wendel, Griffin, and even Princeton, come to eat a good, free meal. They serve a ‘stick to your ribs’ type of meal, meaning meat, veg., dessert, drink, and sometimes bread. Some busineses have adopted the Community Table for their own project. People have been known to donate veg., melons, (especially this
time of year) meat, and monetary donations. It is neat to see how the three churches take turns, with each doing one dinner every third week. They work hand in hand. The local Boy Scouts, Student Council, and Sunday School Classes, help with doing the dishes and serving meals for some community and service hours. As you can read, it takes a lot of good people to pull this off, and all they ask of you is to come and enjoy a ‘Free Community Dinner.’ Yes I said ‘FREE.’ P.S. (A smile and a thank you would be nice).

The Hoosier Salon New Harmony Gallery presented awards to thirteen artists at the Eighth Annual ‘Good Ole Summertime’ Member Exhibit on Saturday, August 24. Winner of the Fifth Third $500 Best of Show Award was Alan Larkin of South Bend, Indiana. His entry, Free at Last, was a small etching, but its impact was large as the awards jurors praised it by saying, “We felt that the focal point is well defined and the scale and dimension are well done in a small package, but even if blown up to a larger scale such as for the New Yorker magazine or as part of a children’s storybook, it would have kept its definition and clarity.” The First Place Winner was Victoria Gillieron (Indianapolis) with an oil, Moon River .

Piecing together information from the Working Men’s Institute and the Owen Family archives, The Chase for Clorion unravels the mystery of the anatomical sketches at the National Library of Medicine in Bethesda Md, linking them to historic New Harmony figure Martha Chase - Owen.

Life is a bit trickier on the ‘back nine’ You know, time has a way of moving quickly and catching you unaware of the passing years. It seems just yesterday that I was young, just married and embarking on my new life with my mate. Yet in a way, it seems like eons ago, and I wonder where all the years went. I know that I lived them all. I have glimpses of how it was back then and of all my hopes and dreams. But, here it is... the ‘back nine’ of my life and it catches me by surprise. How did I get here so fast? Where did the years go and where did my youth go? I remember well seeing older people through the years and thinking that those older people were years away from me and that ‘I was only on the first hole’ and the ‘back nine’ was so far off that I could not fathom it or imagine fully what it would be like. But, here it is... my friends are retired and getting Grey, they move slower and I see an older person now. Some are in better and some worse shape than me, but, I see the great
change. Not like the ones that I remember who were young and vibrant, but, like me, their age is beginning to show and we are now those older folks that we used to see and never thought we’d become. Each day now, I find that just getting a shower is a real target for the day. And taking a nap is not a treat anymore - it’s mandatory. Cause if I don’t on my own free will, I just fall asleep where I sit. And so, now I enter into this new season of my life unprepared for all the aches and pains and the loss of strength and ability to go and do things that I wish I had done but never did. But, at least I know, that though I’m on the ‘back nine,’ and I’m not sure how long it will last, this I know, that when it’s over on this earth, it’s over. A new adventure will begin. Yes, I have regrets. There are things I wish I hadn’t done - things I should have done, but indeed, there are many things I’m happy to have done. It’s all in a lifetime.
So, if you’re not on the ‘back nine’ yet, let me remind you, that it will be here faster than you think. So, whatever you would like to accomplish in your life please do it quickly. Don’t put things off too long.. Life goes by quickly. So, do what you can today, as you can never be sure whether you’re on the ‘back nine’ or not. You have no promise that you will see all the seasons of your life. So, live for today and say all the things that you want your loved ones to remember, and hope that they appreciate and love you for all the things that you have done for them in all the years past. ‘Life’ is a gift to you. The way you live your life is your gift to those who come after. Make it a fantastic one. Live It Well. Enjoy Today. Do Something Fun. Be Happy . Have A Great Day Remember ‘It is health that is real wealth and not pieces of gold and silver.’ Live Happy In 2013. Lastly, Consider The Following: ~Your kids are becoming you, but your grandchildren are perfect. ~Going out is good, Coming home is better. ~You forget names, But it’s ok because other people for-
got they even knew you. ~You realize you’re never going to be really good at anything, especially golf. ~The things you used to care to do, you no longer care to do, but you really do care that you don’t care to do them anymore. ~You sleep better on a lounge chair with the TV blaring than in bed. It’s called ‘pre-sleep.’ ~You miss the days when everything worked with just an ‘on’ and ‘off’ switch. ~You tend to use more four letter words - ‘what?’, ‘when?’ ~Now that you can afford expensive jewelry, it’s not safe to wear it anywhere. ~You notice everything they sell in stores is ‘sleeveless?’ ~What used to be freckles are now liver spots. ~Everybody whispers. ~You have three sizes of clothes in your closet, two of which you will never wear. ~Old is good in some things: Old Songs, Old movies, and best of all, Old Friends. It’s Not What You Gather, But What You Scatter That Tells What Kind Of Life You Have Lived. Today is the oldest you’ve ever been, yet the youngest you’ll ever be, so enjoy this day while it lasts.

West Side Christian files appeal to cross ruling Alliance Defending Freedom allied attorneys representing an Evansville area church filed an appeal recently in an ACLU lawsuit over the display of up to 31 temporary crosses at the Evansville riverfront. Last month, a federal district court issued an injunction saying that the crosses cannot be displayed in the same manner as other community group displays. “Government officials should not be allowed to unconstitutionally single out faith-based groups for censorship,” said Bryan Beauman, one of nearly 2,300 allied attorneys with Alliance Defending Freedom. “A public display, approved in the same way as other types of displays, cannot be singled out for censorship simply because it is in the shape of a
cross.” In June, the Evansville Board of Public Works approved a request by West Side Christian Church for it and up to 30 other participating churches to display painted and decorated crosses along the city’s popular riverfront for two weeks in August in an event known as ‘Cross the River.’ Each participating church was scheduled to paint and decorate a cross and display it during the event in an effort to raise money for local charities. The ACLU filed a lawsuit on behalf of two Vanderburgh County residents after the city approved the churches’ permit to display the crosses. In July, Alliance Defending Freedom allied attorneys filed a motion to intervene on behalf of the churches, which

On behalf of the entire River Days committee, I would like to welcome everyone to the 6th Annual River Days Festival!! What started six years ago as an attempt to offer a family oriented festival designed to help attract people to the Mt. Vernon Riverfront has blossomed into one of the Tri-Stateâ€™s premier events. Back this year are perennial favorites like Governor and Mrs. Hovey and many Historical demonstrations, arts & crafters, Little Miss & Mr. Pageant, Pet Parade, Family Feud, the Mt. Vernon River Days Parade, musical entertainment, ďŹ reworks and of course, food, food and MORE food!!! This year our festival will feature over 30 food booths (more than ever!). Check out the mouthwatering sensations of Smoke on the Ohio as at least 25 contestants (again, more than ever) vie for cash prizes and our unique trophies that will be awarded to the best of the best. Many contestants will offer their great tasting BBQ for sale to the general public. I canâ€™t wait!! After being talked about for years, the Mt. Vernon Riverfront revitalization is now complete. Weâ€™ve re-organized the festival and moved all of the food booths to Water Street grouping ALL of the food vendors together, including Smoke on the Ohio. The amphitheater and water park offers a fantastic place for the folks of our community to watch the kids play or just sit and relax and watch the river trafďŹ c as it majestically moves up and down the mighty Ohio River. Speaking of the river trafďŹ c, check out the 2nd Annual Great American Towboat Race. Watch as these mighty monsters of the waterway demonstrate their awesome power and challenge the talents of their crews as they compete to ďŹ nd out who has the biggest, baddest boat on the Ohio. And nearing completion, The Landing will soon be alive with residents bringing life to our downtown area. Stop by the Flaherty & Collins booth for information about the condos and apartments soon to be on the market. Weâ€™re proud to once again feature this souvenir guide where youâ€™ll ďŹ nd tidbits about our past and pictures galore. Inside, youâ€™ll also ďŹ nd the â€œmunchie mapâ€? with the location and menu of our many food booths. How many booths can YOU stop at in three days? Special thanks to the local business community for sponsoring this guide, we hope you like it. If you do, please take the time to stop in to see our sponsors and tell them THANKS for being a part of our community. The festival would not be possible without their ďŹ nancial support. Welcome to this yearâ€™s River Days festival!! We hope everyone has a great time and as always, we look forward to your comments!!

Brown studies at University of Evansville’s British Campus University of Evansville student Josulynne Brown of Wadesville, IN, will spend the Fall 2013 semester studying abroad at Harlaxton College, UE’s British campus near Grantham, England. Brown, who is majoring in Music Therapy, is among 156 students who began classes Monday, September 2 at Harlaxton, housed in a 120-room Victorian manor in the East Midlands countryside. “For more than 40 years, studying at Harlaxton College has been a definitive part of the University of Evansville experience. Where else can students live and study in a grand manor house, travel throughout the United Kingdom and Europe on weekends, and form lasting ties with local residents?” said Earl Kirk, UE director of study abroad. “We’re thrilled to provide this transformational educational experience for students such as Josulynne Brown, and we wish all of the Fall 2013 Harlaxton students a semester of learning, discovery, and growth.” The Harlaxton curriculum features a core course, The British Experience, which offers an interdisciplinary introduction to British life and culture. Literature, art history, economics, history, and political science are part of the course, which combines lectures, seminars,
and field trips to locations such as Lincoln and London. In addition to The British Experience, students enroll in a range of classes in the liberal arts and pre-professional studies. Harlaxton College’s British faculty is supplemented by visiting faculty members from American institutions. Optional weekend trips to destinations such as London, Paris, Ireland, Wales, and the Lake District in northern England provide students with opportunities to engage the culture in Britain and beyond. While at Harlaxton, students may participate in the popular Meet-aFamily program, athletics, and other activities. The University of Evansville is a private, liberal arts-based university with a full-time undergraduate enrollment of approximately 2,400. UE’s diverse student body represents 42 states and 46 countries. U.S. News & World Report recognizes UE as a top 10 master’sgranting university in the Midwest, and third in the region for “Great Schools, Great Prices.” For more information, please visit http://www. evansville.edu.

“The park at the riverfront has been named Riverbend Park by the Mt. Vernon Friends of the Parks group. This name was the most common name submitted as a result of requesting community members to name the park via the Parks and Recreation Facebook Page, Friends of the Park Facebook page, and names solicited at the recent Art Festival held at the park. New banners have been hung at Riverbend Park on the nine street lights along Water Street. There are two different banners displayed. These banners have a patriotic theme. One has the Riverbend Park name, while the other displays a welcome message. The POW and Indiana flagpoles, funded by the Classes of 1975 and 1963, are also being installed at this time. These will complement the American Flag, funded by the Class of 1982, now flying in our park. There are many additional items that have been suggested for Riverbend Park improvement. Among the suggestions are shading for the benches by the water feature, trash receptacles for the picnic table area and numerous other ideas for park improvement. There have been many generous donors which has allowed us to start making improvements to Riverbend Park. In addition to both individual and corporate donors, many Mt. Vernon graduating classes have supported this community cause. Donations are tax deductible and checks should be made out to Mt. Vernon Parks and Rec (include Friends of the Park on the memo line).”

Local Company offers free resources in recognition of World Alzheimer’s Month As one of the most feared diseases, an Alzheimer’s diagnosis presents many challenges for families living with this disease. Because an estimated 70 percent of people with Alzheimer’s live at home, the responsibility of caring for them usually falls on their families, who frequently face – and dread – the unexpected and unknown. While it may be impossible to predict behaviors exhibited by a person struggling with Alzheimer’s, there are free resources available to help area families cope with whatever situation may arise. “Many family caregivers wake up every day with anxiety and fear because they don’t know how a loved one with Alzheimer’s will act or react,” said Ben Klipsch, owner of the Home Instead Senior Care office serving Evansville and Jasper counties. “We have a network of support including free tools and materials available to help family caregivers navigate the challenges that come with caring for someone with Alzheimer’s.” In recognition of World Alzheimer’s Month (September 2013), the Home Instead Senior Care network is offering a number of free resources to help local families who are living with Alzheimer’s, including workshops where family members will receive a version of the same in-depth Alzheimer’s CARE: Changing Aging Through Research and Education® training program training that was developed for the network’s professional CAREGivers. The workshops will offer specific solutions for the many common issues

Posey County members to celebrate National 4-H Week National 4-H Week is October 6-12 this year, and 4-H members and their supporters across the country will be celebrating. National 4-H Week is a special time to celebrate the accomplishments of 4-H youth everywhere, and this year is no exception. Posey County 4-H members and approved adult volunteers put forth tremendous amounts of their time and talent during the annual Posey County 4-H Fair and throughout the rest of the year, and they are looking forward to enlarging their 4-H family to encompass new members in 2014. All young people in grades 3-12, regardless of race, color, sex, national origin, age or disability, are welcome to join Posey County 4-H. Through 4-H, youth develop their leadership, public speaking, citizenship and interpersonal skills as they ‘learn by doing,’ a concept that is central
to the 4-H philosophy. The mission of the Purdue Cooperative Extension System in conducting the Indiana 4-H youth development program is to assist youth in acquiring knowledge, developing life skills and forming attitudes that will enable boys and girls to become selfdirecting, productive and contributing members of society. The many activities central to the 4-H program are fun and educational for its members, in addition to being functional in their core aspects of active participation and personal growth for each 4-H member. Locally, Posey County 4-H Clubs will observe National 4-H Week in a variety of ways. Some clubs are planning to create 4-H posters to display in schools and other public places, and many Posey County 4-H members are planning to wear 4-H apparel to school during this week. Still other
have always wondered about this unique building at the end of the street. We are excited to give it a new purpose and make it a part of why people love to come to New Harmony.’ The depot was once a part of the Decatur, Peoria, and Evansville Line and once sat in the lot next to the Yellow Tavern in New Harmony. It served as the original tourist center for the town prior to the construction of the Athenaeum. “It has been kind of fun having people stop by and help us piece together some of the history of the building,” Clark said. “We found some old photos of when it was moved to this location and have those hanging in the shop now.” Lowry Hollow will feature refurbished antiques that are custom made by the sisters as well as décor items for gifts and decorating. Hours during Kunstfest will be: 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Following Kunstfest, fall hours will be Thursdays and Fridays from 11:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. and select weekends. Pictures and information can be tracked at lowryhollow.com.
clubs have planned special community service activities for the week, and all local third and fourth grade students will receive 4-H promotional materials at school. The Indiana 4-H Youth Development Program is part of the Purdue University Cooperative Extension Service. Nationally, the Extension Service is a part of the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture, and local leadership for the program is provided by 4-H Youth Extension Educators and trained 4-H adult volunteers. Whether you are eight, 18 or 80, now is the perfect time to become involved in Posey County 4-H. Each year Posey County 4-H clubs reorganize and enroll new youth members and adult volunteers. For more information, please contact the Purdue Extension-Posey County office by calling 812-838-1331 or email email@example.com.

ent a program titled ‘Agricultural Outlook 2014’ on Friday, September 13 at the Posey County Fairgrounds at 7 a.m. CST. Breakfast will begin at 6:30 a.m. Both the program and breakfast are free to the public and is designed to help farmers, land owners, input suppliers, and those interested in agriculture make better business decisions in the coming year. The Agricultural Outlook will be presented by Chris Hurt, an Agricultural Economist from the Purdue campus, with a local perspective and information also presented by area specialists. Indiana agriculture has returned to abundant production after the 2012 drought. Yield prospects for the state are among the best in the country and this means the grain handling and processing industries will be returning to full capacity. Prospects remain hopeful for record total Indiana production of corn and record high soybean yields; although late season dryness and frost could still be threats. Grain and soybean prices will have to be low enough to encourage end users to step up their consumption. The level of prices needed to do that will be a feature of the program. Strategies for marketing this year’s crops will also be covered and are different for corn and soybeans.
Farmers and agribusiness managers need to be thinking about what to plant in 2014. Purdue has developed their first estimates of costs for 2014 crops and expected returns for each crop. There are some surprises. Livestock producers’ income prospects turn up sharply with lower feed costs. The animal sector is ready to start expansion. How big will that expansion be and what species are gearing up the most? One of the most important questions for 2014 is, “What will happen to land values and cash rents?” Will much higher yields this fall offset lower prices and provide more farm income, or less? The level of income this year can be an influence on land values and cash rents for 2014, but expected returns for 2014 crop production and interest rates may be more important. Land values will also be affected by the longer-term outlook. For this reason, expected returns over the next three years will also be provided. Government policy could also impact the overall support for the agricultural sector in coming years so a discussion of the Farm Bill prospects will be included. For more information or special needs, contact Jon Neufelder; Purdue Extension Posey County at: 812-838-1331.

In celebration of New Harmony’s Bicentennial in 2014, what better way to re-live history than to visit New Lanark. New Lanark and New Harmony are connected through the life and work of community innovator and mill owner Robert Owen, who continued in New Harmony the innovative work he began in New Lanark. Time in New Lanark allows you to walk in the footsteps of Robert Owen at the New Lanark Center. He was a man ahead of his time in areas of education, equality, and working conditions. Discover how people lived and worked in the 18th century as you explore the restored village and cotton mill. Other Highlights include: Edinburg Castle, Holyrood palace, St. Andrews, Dunrobin Castle, Orkney Island, Loch Ness, Isle of Skye, and Armadale Castle. Not only will it be possible to revel in local history, but you will experience stunning landscapes, lively
cities, stirring history plus distinct myths and stories. Ever hear of the Loch Ness Monster? Also, the Evansville Museum of Arts, History & Science and the USS LST Ship Memorial, in collaborations with Lifestyle Tours and Collette Vacations, focusing on the 70th anniversary of the D-Day landings and the Normandy Invasion with a Memorials of War Tour, July 3 – 12, 2014. First go to Paris and visit historical WWII sites such as Hotel Meurice, the headquarters of the Nazi officer in charge of Paris, the bridge and port in Paris where sadly so many Jews were deported during the Holocaust, and the La Roche-Guyon Castle where Rommel headquartered. As well, you will have a free day in Paris and an opportunity to visit all the iconic sites such as The Lourvre, Versailles, and a sunset dinner at the Eiffel Tower. You’ll then move to the landing beaches of DDay – Omaha and Utah. What a moving experience to know the LST 325, now docked in Evansville, made this journey, impacted WWII so completely, and lives on in memorial on this hallowed ground. Finally move inland to experience life in French country villages and the French countryside. Since you’re already in Europe, there is an opportunity to extend your stay with an optional 4 days 3-night post tour extension. There will be WWII sites to visit as well as all the other quintessential sites of London such as Big Ben, The London Eye, Buckingham Palace and St. Paul’s Cathedral.

Mount Vernon City Council looks at trash pick-up rate increases By Lois Mittino Gray Mayor John Tucker began the Mount Vernon Common Council meeting of September 5 by welcoming newlyappointed member Brian Jeffries to his first meeting. Under old business, Mayor John Tucker gave an update on the neighborhood issues the West Ninth Street residents brought up in a group at the last meeting. Councilman Bill Curtis said that he and Police Chief Beloat and Councilman Andy Hoehn met with about eight residents last week. They discussed available options, heard complaints and made some recommendations. Curtis added they will also be having a meet-
ing with Prosecutor Clowers soon concerning possible other actions through his office. Curtis feels that there has been a lot of contact with the residents since the meeting. There are many other additional issues as well so this will be an ongoing process and he will report to the Council as need be. In other action: • Mayor Tucker opened a Public Hearing for the Building Corporation Lease of Police and Fire Station. There were no remonstrators and the hearing was closed. A Resolution was then passed giving permission to enter into the lease numbered 13-20. Attorney
Beth McFaddin Higgins explained the monthly payment will be $20,000 from CCDF (City Capital Development Fund) and the balance from EDIT tax monies. Attorney Higgins said this resolution keeps all on track for a November closing • After considerable discussion on many scenarios concerning alcohol on the riverfront, the Council passed ordinance 13-19 regulating alcohol use on public property. The ordinance will get reviewed again in sixty days after conferring with the Parks Department and observing actions of the public at River Days. • Another ordinance passed gives Additional Ap-
propriations in the EDIT Fund. Higgins stated the ordinance comes as a request from several departments including the Street Department for paving; the Redevelopment Commission for the police and fire station; the multi-purpose building at the riverfront and the new phone system for city hall. She added it will also have to be published and after publication a public hearing will be held. • A first reading passed of an ordinance to remove the enforcement (measuring of weeds, mailings, etc.) of the Weed Ordinance from the Clerk-Treasurer and give it to the Code Enforcement Officer to do.
• Larry Williams addressed the Council to thank everyone involved with River Days, especially the committee. “People have no idea how much work it takes to put this on”, he noted. He also thanked the city for its help in letting them be under the city insurance umbrella. The Rivers Days Committee now has their own federal ID and they are 503C. As of December 31, 2013, they will be totally on their own. “This event is going to be around for a long time.” Williams noted. • Mayor Tucker updated the Council on preparation of the drug testing policy. The hold up is that the Council requested samples
‘Bridge’ continued from Page A1 is not alone in their suffering since the bridge has been closed. Businesses on the Illinois side have also suffered business loss. Rush Appliances in Carmi advised they have seen business decrease by as much as 30 percent. Walmart and a grocery store also shared in similar profit loss. “We don’t see it as a river that divides us, we see it as a bridge that connects us,” Henning said. Future area industry and business growth potential also depend on the bridge. Henning noted that the impending oil boom in southern Illinois as well as the fertilizer plant in Posey County would both suffer consequences if the bridge is not opened. “We want to see growth in this area that’s responsible. You can kind of think of this as New Harmony is the heart of this region. It is a treasure. We have an artery that’s been clogged,” Henning said. David Campbell, a former New Harmony Town Council member, spoke and pointed out the consequences if New Harmony were to take over ownership of the bridge. “This town doesn’t know anything about running a bridge, operating a bridge, engineering a bridge, managing personnel. These are pt members of a board. What happens if something goes wrong? What if the numbers don’t work out? What if the liability insurance doesn’t work out? Where is all this big support from Il-
linois?” “We had a study done by DNR on the bank erosion on the Wabash. And they very specifically said that as the current comes across it hits the Illinois span of the bridge and it is eroding it and that span will be gone in 25 years. That was in 2006,” Campbell said. “I would be very, very cautious because I can see something going wrong and all of a sudden our utility bill is not gas, water…it’s bridge maintenance and that could be a number that’s not $2 a month,” he added. Henning addressed Campbell’s concerns. “All we are saying is that we would like the council to look at the issue again, both the pros and the cons and I’m sure that in their wisdom, they will make the right decision,” Henning said. “If we all lived a life of ‘what ifs’, we would never do anything. What if we can get it reopened? What if it can be refurbished? What if we can get government funds? What if it does increase traffic? We tend to look at the positive side. But we need to look at the worst case scenario as well,” Linda Henning said. “We’d like the council to look at the issue again, both the pros and the cons and do their due diligence. If we live a life of what ifs, we’d never do anything.” Henning said.
While both sides understand that ownership of the bridge must be transferred out of the White County Bridge Commission’s hands in order to be eligible for government funds, that eligibility is not guaranteed. Town Council President Joe Straw stressed the importance of hearing from two key players: the Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) and the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT). He stated the council has not forgotten the issue and continues to try to find a solution. He stated that Posey County officials met with Lt. Governor Sue Ellspermann earlier this year to discuss important issues within the county. Most of those concerns, Straw said, boiled down to the bridge’s closure. Council member Linda Warrum has spent time contacting Indiana State Representative Wendy McNamara’s office and Indiana Congressman Larry Bucshon’s office. She advised both offices ultimately referred her to INDOT to discuss the issue. She has also talked with officials at the Federal Highway Administration. “All roads lead to INDOT,” she said. “INDOT has indicated they will not authorize money to rehab the bridge and has offered money only for a new bridge. That’s where we stand now.” “Being eligible doesn’t mean
you’re going to get the funds. What they’ve told us to date, is not encouraging,” Warrum added. She stated that INDOT has already authorized projects throughout the state through 2015 and they have other projects slated through 2020. Straw addressed the crowd stating, “We’re in this with you. We want the bridge open just as much as you do. We’re not giving up. We’re not here to make a decision today or even next week. We’re not in the business to take over a bridge, we’re in the business to get the bridge back open with someone that can afford to do it. It’s a money problem, really,” he said. New Harmony officials are encouraged by an upcoming week next week with INDOT commissioner, Karl Browning. He served as commissioner from 2006-2009 and was recently reappointed in July. Council member Andrew Wilson sympathized with the situation the town is in and stated he understood the risk and liability issues for the town. He acknowledged that businesses within the town are suffering and felt it is in the best interests of the town to fully study the issue. “People have been trying to transfer the ownership of this bridge since before I was born. Next Monday, I’ll be 34. I don’t want to be known as the generation that let it continue,” Wilson said.
from other places, and the city policy is already more stringent than the samples they have received to date. Attorney Higgins agreed and added they have received additional samples that she and Mrs. Willis are reviewing now. There will be two separate policies – an INDOT and a NON INDOT, which will encompass the safety sensitive positions. She also asked for direction on some issues associated with the policy. Do they want baseline testing for entire city departments and do they want to broadly define what a safety sensitive position is for example. • An update was discussed on the results of the recent trash study. Councilman Hoehn talked with Street Commissioner Max Dieterle and Councilman Fuelling. They reviewed Umbaugh’s numbers and don’t agree with them totally as they are a little high on some things, but he is uncertain as to how much. Umbaugh is suggesting a raise in the trash rate to the $18/month range. The Council does know the trash rate needs to be increased, but Hoehn recommends they move it to $10/month by the first of the year. He just received a breakdown that evening on the 2750 trash customers the city has and he would like to take a look some of the business customers to see about the heavy users. • Hoehn asked Dieterle to monitor the line items in the Sanitation budget starting January 2014, with the intent to get the city to do this in-house to get a comparable rate in the 13.00 - $14.00/month range. He stated they can watch the line items for five months or so and then look at the situation, come May or June to see if the service is customer driven versus city driven. The Council agreed to setting the rate to $10.00/ month the first of the year, which is $1.40 increase. From there, after the study, they will phase increases in incrementally over the next three to five years. • Councilwoman Beth Higgins remarked on the great work done by Friends of the Park for the banners at the riverfront. They may also be getting some seasonal banners as well. Councilman Fuelling stated three graduation classes have also donated money for the riverfront. He would like to thank the Street Department for the grand work they have done down there, as well as the Parks and Recreation Dept.

If I find the courage to use the ‘N’ word, do not despair Do you ever feel like your life is a long flight that has been overbooked? Recently, I have felt overcommitted to the point that sometimes I feel as if I need to be ‘committed.’ My biggest problem seems to be the prob- TRUTH... lem I have with the ‘N’ word. STRANGER By nature, I have been told THAN that I try to do too much for FICTION too many people. The primary BY DAVE reason for that is my love for PEARCE people, in general, and my desire not to disappoint anyone. My wife, who knows me better than anyone, constantly reminds me that occasionally it is OK to use the ‘N’ word and that I should use it more. The past few days have been a whirlwind. A few weeks ago, my wife and I planned a short get-away for ourselves, taking her mom and dad with us. We decided that on the week that Mount Vernon and North Posey were playing each other in football, it would be a good week for us to get out of town for a few days. After all, I would have a reporter at the game and no one would do without coverage. So with a real desire to please my wife and her family, I was reluctant to use the ‘N’ word. We went ahead and planned for the four of us to spend five or six days in Florida. While I was there, I was glad I had made that decision. I always enjoy being around my in-laws. And if you think I am rough on my wife, you should ask my mother-in-law how bad it is to be around me. But I think we had a great time together, despite the fact that she nor I neither one felt that great. Just a few days before I had agreed to go to Florida, North Posey Principal and friend
Scott Strieter had asked me about having a meeting of the new North Posey Hall of Fame committee on Friday night before our football game. Dr. Strieter generously made all the arrangements and set up all the members of the committee to meet at the school at 5 p.m. As most of you know, the Posey County News is more a labor of love than it is a living for my wife and I. We continue to do it because we love Posey County and the people here. We feel that the people of Posey County deserve to have a newspaper that is committed to getting out and finding out the things that you will not read on the Internet or won’t see on the pages of the Evansville newspaper or on the Evansville television stations. My wife works at Old National Bank during the week and I work at DPatrick Ford. So when one of my customers asked me on Friday if I could stick around a few minutes at my ‘real’ job, I was afraid to use the ‘N’ word. So instead, I put my dear friend Joe Neidig on the spot, as well as Dr. Strieter, as the two men met with the committee to talk about the final determination of who would be the initial class of inductees into the Hall of Fame. Both men indicated that everyone on the committee seemed to be on the same page but they did not want to make a decision without me being present. I admire their patience but hate that I was unable to make the meeting. While in Florida, I received a phone call from another dear friend, Jeff O’Risky. Jeff indicated that he had one seat left on a flight to Happy Valley on the campus of Penn State
University where I would have an opportunity to see his son (and also my friend) Chris O’Risky play football. When the call came in to my room in Florida, I was immediately overwhelmed that the O’Riskys were kind enough to invite me to go along. For the next day-and-a-half, in my excitement at the possibility, I attempted to try and find a way not to have to use the ‘N’ word. But when all was said and done, I realized that I would be getting back into Posey County late on Thursday night, would be working my ‘real’ job on Friday, and was just coming off a week of vacation. As much as I would love to have been able to see Chris play against Penn State, I finally had to use the ‘N’ word and let Jeff know that there just wasn’t enough time left in the week for me to take another day off from the one job and to keep caught up on this one. During my trip, my niece tried numerous times to get ahold of me but each time the phone would ring, it seemed I was in the middle of something I could not get away from right away. And by the time I reached a point to where I could call her back, it was too late to call. Then on Friday, my mother-in-law was admitted to the hospital because of infection in her leg. Also on Friday, Joe stopped into my ‘real’ job. He told me he had someone cancel out on a trip they had planned to Southern Illinois University at Carbondale where I attended school and he asked me to go down and see Nick and my Salukis play on Saturday. Again, as much as I would like to have said yes, I had to use the ‘N’ word again. I was reluctant but it was a necessity. A few months ago, another friend and busi-
ness associate Pat Beckgard asked me to speak at the United Way kick-off breakfast next week. While I’m not exactly in high demand as a speaker, I simply could not use the ‘N’ word to someone who has been so kind to me and to an organization that has done so much for so many. Then on Friday, my old friend Herb Curry asked me if I would have anything I could present to the Mount Vernon Kiwanis Club on Tuesday. Again, how could I use the ‘N’ word to someone who is kind enough to actually want to hear me ramble. I appreciate the opportunities that you, my friends, have offered me, I am looking forward to seeing each and every one of you. I am looking to make new friends and see friends I have not seen in some time. I hope I have not offended anyone by not being able to do all the things I had planned to do this past week. If I did, I am truly sorry. My friends mean the world to me. But I once had a pastor tell me that if he really wanted to get something done, he would ask someone who didn’t have time to do it. Somehow, that would be the person most likely to get it done. Apparently there are several of us out there who don’t know how to use the ‘N’ word. But after the stress of worrying about overcommitting during the past few days, a quote came to my mind. I believe there is much truth to it. And perhaps this is the underlying reason I hate to use the ‘N’ word. “Being good to people is like being a goalkeeper, no matter how many goals you save, people will only remember the ones you missed.”
Guest Column State Rep. Wendy McNamara Festivals that Showcase our District Summer is coming to a close, and fall is in the air. Just because summer is ending doesn’t mean there aren’t still plenty of family fun events to take advantage of in our community. Some of my favorite upcoming events include the traditional German festival, Kunstfest, which honors the founders of New Harmony. Another event is the annual Mount Vernon River Days festival on the banks of the Ohio River. Both offer something unique for everyone. This year, the 2013 Kunstfest will be held on September 21 and 22 in New Harmony. This will
mark 31 years of this traditional festival. Kunstfest is two days filled with music, delicious traditional foods, art and crafts and historic reenactments. Historic New Harmony will be filled with more than 150 street booths and stands, as well as the regular galleries and shops of this vibrant town. There will also be historical craft demonstrators, including blacksmithing, broom and rope making, pottery, antique firearms and even bee keeping. The annual Mount Vernon River Days festival will be held on September 13, 14 and 15. Located on the Ohio River riverfront,
this festival will have over 100 food and vendor booths and will showcase fireworks, boat races and a parade. There will also be a 5K color run to benefit local children’s programs and a Bar-B-Que competition. This festival will showcase the city of Mount Vernon and the surrounding community. I am proud to represent an area rich in tradition and I invite you to come to these special events and experience what we have to offer. Whether it’s your first time or you have run out of fingers and toes to count on, you are in for a truly exceptional experience.
Chapter 5 - The Hands Game Alvin Clarence Thomas, a.k.a. Titanic Thompson, stood and extended his right hand that had a diamond ring on the GAVEL index finger. GAMUT His French cuff was held BY JUDGE with an ivory JIM REDWINE link carved in the shape of an oil derrick. Thompson wore a threepiece blue serge suit with a thick gold chain and watch fob draping from his vest pocket to his eel skin belt. His matching eel skin shoes glistened in the morning sun which was at Thompson’s back and in Frank’s eyes. His thick black hair and neatly trimmed sideburns set off his gleaming white teeth with one gold capped canine. He was five feet ten inches tall and built like a boulder. His gaze challenged Frank who looked down at the table. When Hubert Cokes stood up he towered over McDonald, Raven and Thomas. He was six foot three inches tall and had no hair on any part of his head. His eyes were small and deep set in his face. This Daddy Warbucks did not strike McDonald as the kindly cartoon character who looked after Orphan Annie. He had an air about him that reminded Frank of a large coiled rattlesnake. When he reached for Frank’s hand he cleared the entire table effortlessly. Coke’s voice was surprisingly soft as he said, “Raven says you need an edge. Maybe we can help.” With Titanic Thompson and Cokes across the breakfast table, Raven sat next
to Frank. Occasionally her left leg would brush against Frank. He found he could not concentrate on what Thomas and Daddy Warbucks were saying. R a v e n said, “Frank, I believe my father and Mr. Cokes might be able to coach you as you might coach your football team. Perhaps you can yet pull off your exhibition game.” “How do you know about my plans? I did not mention them last night at dinner. All we talked about was Chief Lookout and the peyote rattle.” “Frank, this is a small town. Strangers stand out. Besides, Julia Lookout sent me smoke signals after you left her home.” “Smoke signals.” “Well, actually Julia telephoned me, but you seem convinced we Indians fatten dogs and take scalps. I thought you might accept the smoke thing a little better. Sorry if you are confused. Julia and I are quite close. She helped place me in the St. Louis Girls Boarding School over by Clear Creek and she sponsored me in my confirmation at the Pawhuska Catholic Church. Julia, also, saw that Mr. Thomas took guardianship over me after my parents were killed in a tornado that struck in Dewey, Oklahoma when my parents and I were living there. Dewey is in the county due east of Osage County and about 30 miles from Pawhuska. “But let’s let our two ex-

perts advise you on how to beat Chief Lookout at his favorite gambling game, the ancient Indian game of Hands. “Oh, before we start your Hands Game lessons, let me give you one more Osage religious fact you might get a chance to use when you regale the chief with your knowledge about the peyote rattle, which by the way Julia made although Fred is not aware of that. Anyway, you need to know all Osage religious altars must face west because Osages believe when one dies they travel to Spiritland with Grandfather the Sun, starting at noon. You might have gained this knowledge from the great Osage scholar, John Joseph Matthews, if you had had a chance to meet him. Maybe some day you will. Of course, he may be at Oxford now. Regardless, the altar in the Pawhuska Catholic Church faces west. The Holy Father might not appreciate it but the Osages do.” “Father Thomas, Hubert, he is all yours.” Titanic Thompson spoke first. “Frank, did you hear anything Cokes or I said? Did you notice he and I traded places while Raven
was beguiling you? Did you miss your Phi Beta Kappa key from your watch fob? Well, here it is. Get it? You must distract Chief Lookout from a game you are just now learning and he has played since before Custer so unwisely divided his troops at the Little Big Horn. “But do not panic. Hubert and I are called gamblers and pool hustlers, but we do not gamble or hustle. We only play to win. Cokes, anything to add?” “You don’t play the game, whatever it is, you play the mark. What angers him? What excites him? What things does he think he knows or cares about more than others do? Let me give you an example. Alvin grew up in Rogers, Arkansas and I grew up in Hot Springs. We’re about the same age. When I heard about this hot-shot pool player I went to Rogers and studied him. He was great, but he had to have it absolutely quiet when he played. I challenged him to a one hundred dollar per game match of one pocket, and when he agreed I paid a group of laborers to bang on the walls of the pool hall. When he found out I
had set him up he was going to shoot me, but we became partners instead. “From your association with your football players at Haskell Indian Institute you are probably aware many Indians love to gamble. Chief Lookout likes to gamble and is an expert at Hands. Plus he probably assumes, correctly, you aren’t. You should be able to draw him into a Hands Game. If you can get a bet that he’ll support your plan if you beat him or you will
Letters to the Editor Critical Decision Point nearing Colleagues and Friends, Much the same as our Council, each of you have a decision facing you as well. The decision should not be whether you will voice support for the reopening of a bridge or attend a public meeting, but rather support the idea of our community. The latter I already know to be self-evident. A critical decision point is nearing for the future of the Harmony Way Bridge. For the future of New Harmony, and the communities we are linked with. Now is the time for the people’s voice to be heard. Monday meetings at 10 a.m. are tough for me too. No time would be convenient for everyone. Hearings and public meetings are only one element of effective public policy. If you cannot attend, you can and certainly should write an individual note/letter/email to the Council members. Phone calls also are to be encouraged. If this is something you believe in. Please do not simply wait for an outcome. Now is the time for inclusion and cooperation. For the rally cry of New Harmony. If we do nothing, eventually we must face an ultimatum. And what then? Letters can be dropped off at Town Hall, individually carried to Council members, mailed or emailed Council meetings are the third Thursday of each month in the Town Hall at 5 p.m. Joe Straw, President 812-307-0008 Police, Fire & Trails; Don Gibbs 812-305-7638 or 812-682-3260 Streets, Solid Waste; Linda Warrum 812-682-3948 Water, Parks/Trees; Karen Walker 812-682-3390 Sewer; Andrew Wilson 812-4579909 Gas & Cemetery; Adam Farrar, Town Attorney 812-6824846.

contribute a thousand dollars to the tribal education fund if you don’t, then all you have to do is beat him. And, of course, borrow the money from us at ten percent per month interest if you don’t. Don’t worry; we never break more than one leg at a time. I have an idea or two and so does Ti. By the way, Ti never fell for that noise distraction thing again. In other words, you will only have one chance with the Chief. Let’s get to work.”
