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.”

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

Cheryl Kaldahl (Lafayette), Marka Kroeger (Henderson, Ky.), Julia London-Meddles (Terre Haute), Con D Y. 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 .

SEPTEMBER 10, 2013 • PAGE A7


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

Welcome to River Days!






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-State’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 can’t wait!! After being talked about for years, the Mt. Vernon Riverfront revitalization is now complete. We’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. We’re proud to once again feature this souvenir guide where you’ll ďŹ nd tidbits about our past and pictures galore. Inside, you’ll also ďŹ nd the “munchie 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 year’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.

“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

Agricultural Outlook Program 2014

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

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.

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.

New Harmony’s Lifestyle Tours, USI offer a pair of holiday travel options It is with great excitement and community pride that Lifestyle Tours is offering two historic tours that integrate momentous occasions in history with our past and present residents. Collaborations with the University of Southern Indiana Alumni Association and the Evansville Museum of Arts, History and Science make these tours through time possible. First, the University of Southern Indiana Alumni Association, in collaboration with Lifestyle Tours and Collette Vacations, is offering Discover Scotland with New Lanark, July 7 17, 2014. 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-

Ph. 812-682-3950 • PO Box 397 • New Harmony, IN 47631 Fx. 812-682-3944 •

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

Titanic Thompson

Hubert Cokes

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. Respectfully, Andrew Wilson






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.”

Wildcat volleyball team upsets Jasper in Big 8 By Steven Kochersperger If there was one game that the Mount Vernon volleyball team had circled on their calendar it was the home matchup with the Jasper Wildcats. On Tuesday the two Wildcat teams went head to head in Mount Vernon in what could be billed as the game of the year for both teams. Last season Jasper came into Mount Vernon and walked away Regional champions after coming from behind two sets to nothing. It left a bad taste in the players’ mouths and everyone involved seemed to want redemption. And while this may be a new year, Tuesday’s matchup between the two teams showcased two teams fighting for conference supremacy. It was the Mount Vernon Wildcats who held on to win in an exciting early season conference game, beating Jasper 25-11, 15-25, 25-17, 25-16. Mount Vernon came out in the first set ready to play going up early on 4-1. It wouldn’t be a match that Jasper would even get close to climbing back into and Mount Vernon took the first set easily 25-11. The second set would not hold the same fate for the home team though. Mount Vernon went down early 3-0 and never recovered in the second set. The Cats have struggled recently in second sets and Jasper seemed to take advantage of any and all Mount Vernon mistakes winning the set 25-15 to tie the sets at one a piece.

But Mount Vernon would not be denied in this Big Eight opener. The Cats came roaring back after falling behind Jasper 7-3 to get six straight points behind the serving of Junior Andrea Dick. Mount Vernon found themselves ahead 9-7 and steadied themselves for a tough third set the rest of the way. The home Cats took 13 of the final 14 points to take the second set 25-17 to go ahead 2-1. That’s when Mount Vernon seemed to turn on the afterburners, going ahead in the fourth set 8-2 early on. The Cats continued to build their lead in the final set and ended up taking the set 25-16 to beat Jasper for their first Big Eight Conference win of the season. “I’m very happy with how our team is playing right now,” Mount Vernon coach Michelle Northrop said. “We have struggled recently in the second match games but we definitely came out the rest of the way and showed how strong of a team we are. I am very proud of these girls.” Senior Livia Hopper led the way Tuesday night with 21 kills while teammate Ellen Denning had 37 assists. Sophomore Alexis Nall had 17 digs for Mount Vernon while Freshman Drew McNamara led the way with three blocks in the matchup. On Thursday Mount Vernon hoped to take the momentum of a great home win on the road and come away winners yet again

Vikings lose match, goalie Heathcotte at Forest Park

By Dave Pearce The North Posey Vikings lost more than a soccer game at Forest Park on Saturday. The Vikings lost a four-year starting senior whose versatility earned him a spot at goalie on this year’s squad. Reed Heathcotte, who has logged many miles and many hours of playing time during a soccer career that was supposed to culminate in this, his senior season at North Posey, instead will watch the remainder of the season from the sidelines following a collision at Forest Park on Saturday. The defending Pocket Athletic Conference and sectional defending champion Forest Park Rangers and the upstart North Posey Vikings were playing an even match with about 10 minutes to go in the first half when Heathcotte went up to make a save and woke up in the Intensive Care Unit of an Evansville Hospital with at least three broken bones in his face, a concussion, and other possible injuries. “I never thought something like that would happen to Reed,” North Posey Coach Andy Hines said.

“He is almost like Superman out there.” But the determined senior went up to make the save and collided with a Forest Park player, who was issued a yellow card. But a yellow card is of little consolation to the Viking soccer family. The Rangers scored early on the Vikings as the Viking defense got beat on a diagonal ball. “When we have the ball out top, we are just as good as anybody,” Hines said of his Vikings. “But our defense sometimes gets caught sleeping and when that happened, the ball came out on the left-hand side and on a 40-yard ball, diagonal switch, the ball got over Michael (Helfert) and the guy was in a footrace with Reed. So we got caught napping early in the game.” But the Vikings struck back. Janis Heipmann scored on a bullet from outside the box to tie it up and that’s when things got tough for the Vikings. “They are a very good team. They are fast and physical,” Hines said of the Rangers. “They work and are fast and are hard-nosed.

As soon as you get the ball, they are in your face. They may not win the ball but they are there. We did a good job, though, it was a very even soccer game.” Hines said the Vikings were impressive for keeping their mental edge, following the injury to Heathcotte, which included a 15 or 20-minute delay and a ride in the ambulance. “It was a very emotional moment for everyone,” Hines said. “When you have a four-year starter who goes down with that kind of injury and he can’t even remember anything and laying on the ground and all he can say is ‘Sorry, Coach,’ that’s an emotional time.” “He just kept saying ‘Did I stop the ball? What’s the score? Did I stop the ball? What’s the score?” Hines said. “I really didn’t even want to go out there because I knew it was bad. Then you have Jace (Brandenstein) and George who are both very upset.” But Hines said his team managed to keep its composure, a sign

Wildcats fall at ‘The Pit’

By Steven Kochersperger The Mount Carmel Aces might have been playing in just their third game of the season but they looked to be in mid season form as they hosted the Mount Vernon Wildcats on Friday night. This Big Eight Conference opener was important to both ball clubs but it was the Aces to show the intensity and fire as they beat Mount Vernon handily 45-3. The Aces came out and jumped on Mount Vernon early in the game. It took just over a minute in the

opening drive for Mount Carmel to get in the end zone as junior Levi Laws ran for a 46 yard touchdown to put the Aces up 7-0. Mount Vernon’s opening drive lasted for just one play as quarterback Riley Snodgrass was not able to handle the snap and coughed up the ball to Mount Carmel’s defense. Four plays later the Aces found the end zone again as senior running back Kane Garcia scampered five yards to put the aces up 14-0. The Aces would find the end zone a little over a minute later as de-

fense recovered a Mount Vernon fumble setting up a touchdown pass from quarterback Reece Metcalf to wideout Kiefer Goldman. The extra point attempt was blocked by the Wildcats and Mount Carmel found themselves ahead 20-0 with just 8:02 left in the opening quarter. Mount Vernon needed desperately to get on the board and did just that as they drove down the field setting up a 30 yard field goal by senior kicker Micheal Cannato making the game 20-3 in favor of the home team. The Aces would find the end zone three more times in the opening half of play and went ahead 39-3 at halftime. The second half started with

Viking win pair includes Rangers By Dave Pearce The North Posey High School girls’ soccer team enjoyed a successful week against teams wearing green this week. On Thursday, the Lady Vikings dominated at Wood Memorial while on Saturday, in another girl/boy double-header at Forest Park, the Lady Vikings got a rare win over the Rangers by a score of 4-2. “We had a 3-0 lead on Wood Memorial at the half and ended up winning 5-0,” North Posdey Coach Scott Butrum said of his girls’ team. For the Vikings, the used the speed of sophomore Shelbi Newcomer up front as she scored twice. Kamryn Brandenstein had a goal as did Savanah King and Celeste Hill. “We played Shelbi over the top a couple of times and she let her speed go and put the ball away,” Butrum said. “We played very well there. I was very impressed with the effort we got.” But perhaps the biggest win of the season so far came at Ferdinand on Saturday as the girls defeated Pocket Athletic Conference enemy Forest Park by a 4-2 count. “We had never beaten then up there, to my knowledge,” Butrum said of the win. “We jumped on them early and were up 3-0 15 or 20 minutes into the game. “But then they got two goals inn the last 20 minutes of the first half and we were ahead only 3-2 at the half.” But goalie Brooklyn Hamman turned up the heat on the Rangers inn the second period and stopped every North Posey’s Maddie Pfister maintains control of the ball during shot on goal while her teammates added an insurance a recent soccer match.

Maddie Pfister, Maddie Koester, Savannah King, and Kaitlyn Blankenberger each scored for the Vikings. “We capitalized on out opportunities in that game,” Butrum said. “We played to feet pretty well and we have been experimenting with going over the top and playing the through balls with the girls running from the outside forward positions. We are scoring more goals right now. I think that has contributed to our success, especially this week.” Despite Butrum’s happiness with the win and the defense, he did point out that the girls gave up both the goals on corner kicks. “On the second goal, the girl was not even marked at all,” Buturm said. “That cost us two goals and very quickly. We have way more shots on goal than they did and Brooklyn had nine save. We had around 25 shots.” The Vikings stand 2-1 in the conference. They could still be in the hunt for a piece of the conference crown if the Heritage Hills, currently undefeated, can get by Gibson Southern and the Vikings could then take out the Patriots. “Gibson Southern and Heritage Hills play each other next Tuesday night, the same night we play Boonville,” Butrum said. “I would like to see Heritage Hills take out Gibson Southern and that would leave us playing Heritage Hills for a shot at a piece of the conference.” Butrum said a similar situation existed last season. The Vikings will host Boonville on Tuesday in their only match of the week.

Vikings see ‘opportunities for improvement’ in Titan loss By Dave Pearce In management (and apparently in coaching), there are two primary areas in your assessment. The first one is the part that tells you what you have done well. The second is what managers lovingly refer to as “opportunities for improvement.” The North Posey Vikings found out that while they played hard, there are definitely some “opportunities for improvement” after Friday night’s 56-20 loss to the Gibson Southern Titans. Admittedly, the Titans are no slouches. They are coming off a semi-state performance just last season and lost very little off that team. So on Friday night, Memorial Stadium at North Posey High School for full for the 7 p.m. kick-off. The game was close…at least through the first quarter. But the Titans used a variety of ways to score and the Vikings just did not have the experience to keep up with the Titans at this point in the season. “They have a very good football team,” Viking Coach Paul Rynkiewich said following the game. “But we have to run the ball better.” The Vikings finished with 167 yards on the ground but gave up an astounding 352 yards on the ground, and most of it came in big chunks. Just when it looked like the Vikings might have tightened up the defense, the Titans would break for a big gain. And it went that way most of the night. Gibson Southern set the tone early on, scoring on an 85-yard pass play (from quarterback Nick Sellers to Griffin Scheller) just 15 seconds into the contest. The extra point made it 7-0. But for a little while anyhow, it looked as if the Vikings might have the firepower to keep up with the Titans. They settled in for a long drive which culminated on a Lance Inkenbrandt score from four yards out with 4:45 remaining in the first period. But the point after attempt was no good. The Vikings would then score back-toback touchdowns, once with 1:49 remaining in the first period when Seller’s pass to Ma-

son Lankford was good for a 37-yard score and the Vikings trailed 14-6 at the end of the first period. But the Vikings could find little offense and gave the ball back to the Titans, who took advantage again in the second period when Sellers scored on a keeper to put the Titans ahead 21-6. The Vikings bounced back on a James Marshall 11-yard run around the outside to get to within 21-12. The Vikings failed to convert on the 2-point attempt and from that point at the 8:03 mark in the second period, the Viking defense could not stop the Titans and the offense could not find the break they needed to get on the board. “I expected our offense to be more effective tonight,” Rynkiewich said following the game. “I thought the game might be a backand-forth type game. But we just never could get our offense in gear.” The Titans led 35-12 at the half. The Vikings; first possession of the second half appeared promising as they appeared to be moving the ball up the field but the drive stalled and the Vikings turned the ball over on downs. Gibson Southern wasted little time getting on the board again, this time on a John Kissel 59-yard run, coming off another failed fourth-down conversion by the Vikings. A pass from Marshall to Griffin Wiethop was complete but for no gain at the Titan 34. When the Viking offense could not convert, the Titans again got a big play from Brooks Martin, who ran for 35 yards and a score with 3:39 remaining in the third period. The Titans scored again in the third period when Kissel got loose for 61 yards, again on third down after it appeared the Viking defense was going to hold. The final score of the game came with nine minutes remaining in the contest when Darren O’Risky got in from the four. The win was just the fourth in 24 years for the Titans against the Vikings. The Titans finished with 545 yards of total offense while the Vikings had 341. The Vikings gave up an average of nearly 13 yards

Wildcat tennis enjoys a good week, looks to tough Big 8 finish By Steven Kochersperger The Mount Vernon tennis team had a busy week playing three times in as many days before hosting the Mount Vernon Invitational on Saturday morning. All together the Wildcats had a pretty good week going 2-1 in the three day stretch, beating Central at home and Day School on the road before dropping a close matchup at Gibson Southern on Thursday afternoon. On Tuesday the Wildcats beat the Evansville Central Bears at home 3-2 to open the week. Mount Vernon got their wins from the number two and three singles spots as well as the number one doubles play to beat the visiting Bears. The Wildcats took that win and went on the road to Evansville Day school the very next day. Number one singles player Todd Sheffer continues to struggle and dropped his second match in two days, this time to Day School’s Sean Carroll 6-0, 6-0. In number two singles play Luke Steinhart continues to lead the way for the Wildcats, beating his opponent Joey Ballard 6-1, 6-4. Mount Vernon’s Luke Rusher beat his number three singles foe Graham Dunigan 6-1, 6-3 to give the Wildcats wins in two of the three singles spots. The number one doubles team of Michael Clark and Hunter Wilson took care of Day Schools’ Phillip Brown and Brandon Stofleth 7-6, 6-4 to ensure the Wildcats second

straight victory of the week. The number two doubles team of Brandon McCarty and Jordan Crabtree dropped their set losing to Sam Springer and Jake Springer 7-5, 6-2. These two wins kept Mount Vernon unbeaten in head to head matchups on the season as they headed to Gibson Southern Thursday afternoon. The Titans came to play Thursday and ended up breaking the Wildcat streak, beating Mount Vernon 3-2 in a close game. The two wins for the Wildcats came in the number two singles spot and the number one doubles spot Thursday. Luke Steinhart remained the hottest Wildcat player beating his Titan opponent Sam Greubel 4-6, 6-4, 6-3 to keep unbeaten on the season. Number one doubles team Michael Clark and Hunter Wilson beat Ryan Smith and Josh Nurrenburn 6-2, 5-7, 6-2 as well. The loss made the Wildcat record 5-1 entering into Saturday’s Mount Vernon Invitational. The Wildcats fought hard on Saturday but ended their day in third place in the invitational behind first place Vincennes Rivet and second place Evansville Central.

Wildcat cross country teams continue to improve, compete well By Steven Kochersperger The cross country teams at Mount Vernon High School continue to improve as the season rolls along showing that the sport is in good hands each and the future bright for the Wildcat runners. The girls’ and boys’ teams continue to run against some tough competition but are putting up respectable numbers this season. The boys are showing great improvement as they continue to improve on last season’s success. At the Boonville Invitational last year the boys finished in thirteenth place. This season at the same race the Wildcats finished in seventh showing the practice and coaching are paying off. Wildcat Noah Keller led the Wildcats at the Boonville Invitational crossing the finish line in thirtieth place. Micah Keller, Noah’s brother, places right behind him in thirty first 35th. From Noah Keller to Knight there was just a 15-second split showing how close those runners were as they crossed the line at the end of the race. This week the team ran in the Alan Hopewell Classic and once again showed continued improvement as a team and indi-

vidually. In the junior and senior class race the Wildcats were led by Payton Whoberry who placed in 23rd place. Collin Knight finished 13th while Levi Shannon finished 38th. The boys’ freshman and sophomore race was equally competitive as Wildcat Javon Gantt led the way finishing in sixth place earning him a medal. Cade Latshaw finished in 28th while Zach Peerman finished 38th. So far this season has made new boys cross country coach Leigh Latshaw pretty hopeful for the rest of the way. “We are taking it one day at a time, one practice, one race at a time and working hard,” Latshaw said. “The guys have their eyes on Conference and Sectional but are focused and taking one meet at a time.” The girls’ team has done equally well thus far this season. This past week the Lady Wildcat runners also took place in the Alan Hopewell Classic hosted by Gibson Southern High School and walked away very proud of their accomplishments. Two Mount Vernon girls runners placed highly in Thursday’s Hopewell Classic. Junior Toni Waddell came in second overall in the junior and senior race with an impres-

Lady soccer Cats move to 4-3 By Steven Kochersperger The Mount Vernon girls’ soccer team came into this week looking at their schedule knowing that they had three tough games ahead for them. The Wildcat team is improving game to game and felt that they had a chance at making a statement this week if they could just get a couple of wins. That’s exactly what they did as they went 2-1 beating Boonville Tuesday and Evansville Day School on Saturday to run their season record to 4-3. “We had a good week overall,” Wildcat coach Kelly Cox said. “I think we did as well as we could have this week. Beating Boonville and Day School were good wins for us and we are happy to be where we are.” The girls began their week by hosting Big Eight Conference rival Boonville Pioneers. The past few years this game has been marked by overtime wins by both teams and that’s exactly what happened in Tuesday’s game. Tied at 2-2 a piece the Wildcats and Pioneers went into overtime and the Lady Cats took advantage scoring three times in extra time to beat Boonville 5-2. Wildcat Zoe Brown scored three times to lead the Wildcats and Savannah Bush and Kinsey Johnson had one each to ensure Mount Vernon’s win. After losing to Gibson Southern, the Wildcats returned home on Saturday to host the Evansville Day School Eagles in a “Pink Out game.” The team wore their pink uniforms and played with a pink ball to both honor those with Breast Cancer as well as bring awareness to Cancer research. Less than seven minutes into the game sophomore Savannah Bush scored on a break-away to put the Wildcats ahead 1-0.

But Day School showed they would not go down quietly Saturday as they netted a goal of their own with 9:28 left until halftime. The score would remain 1-1 at the half as both teams took time to make the necessary adjustments needed. Three minutes into the second half of play Wildcat freshman Corinna Lambright found the net putting Mount Vernon ahead once again 2-1. And just when most of the fans thought they game was going to end in a Wildcat win, Day School showed they were not about to give up. The Eagles got on the board with a goal with just 1:32 left in the game to tie the contest up at 2-2. This is when Mount Vernon reached deep and answered the Eagles score with a goal of their own to win the game. Senior Kinsey Johnson found herself one-on-one with the goalie on a brake-away and Johnson was able to score with just 26 seconds left in the contest winning the game for Mount Vernon 3-2 Saturday. “We knew we had to come out and strike first against Day School and that’s what we did,” Cox said after the game. “They have a great coaching staff and prepare their team well and we knew we had to be ready to play Mount Vernon Senior Haley Thorne battles with a Day School defender in Saturtoday. We made some adjustments at halfday’s match-up in Mount Vernon. Photo by Steven Kochersperger time and that paid off. Our girls didn’t quit and that’s why we won this game. Kinsey Johnson’s goal showed that we never gave up and she deserves all the credit for that goal. A senior winning a game like that is rare and fun to see.” The Wildcats will now take their 4-3 record and try and build on it this week as they will go on the road to play conference rivals Jasper on Tuesday and Washington on Saturday.

Viking tennis team loses heartbreaker at Gibson Southerm, looks ahead By Dave Pearce The North Posey Vikings had only one match this week and for Viking fans, the result was a little disappointing. The Vikings traveled to conference favorite Gibson Southern on Tuesday and lost to the host Titans, 4-1, with the only win coming at No. 1 doubles. “It was disappointing for the team,” North Posey Coach Brandon Barrett said. “They are a better team than I remember from last year, all the way up and down. They didn’t lose anyone and they have another year’s experience. Their singles players are very solid from top to bottom. I think their No. 1 singles player is better than the Central kid and the Day School kid. He is ranked fifteenth in the state right now.” The Titans’ Cody Mann frustrated Reed Gertiesen by a score of 6-0, 6-0 while Sam Greubel defeated Christian Jones by a score of 6-0, 6-2. “It was a difficult match but at No. 2 doubles, we took them to three sets,” Barrett said. “Evan Krohn battled at

three but ended up losing 6-2, 6-3.” Barrett indicated that both the Vikings and the Titans will likely have different players in different positions come sectional time, as Gibson Southern has one player out with an injury while Barrett may look at some different combinations during upcoming non-conference matches. “The line-up we have in there is probably just not going to beat Gibson,” Barrett said. “I think we may have to go back to the drawing board and se what we can come up with.” The Vikings will keep on the move with three matches this week.

North Elementary parents hear Title I updates By Valerie Werkmeister North Elementary parents were recently afforded a rare opportunity to gain information and ask questions regarding school assessment testing, though many did not participate. On August 29, Principal Terri Waugaman and Title 1 teacher, Danielle Ritter, presented information in a community council meeting to a handful of parents and several teachers regarding the various state-mandated tests students are required to take. The entire school is now considered a Title 1 school, since at least 40 percent of the school population meets poverty level through free and reduced lunch qualifications. Simply put, the school receives additional funding to employ Ritter and four and one-half aides to assist students struggling with coursework. Ritter, as well as the aides, are able to work with the students in smaller groups to help strengthen their skills. Ritter and Waugaman explained the various types of testing used for each grade level that tests a wide array of skills. Students in kindergarten through sixth grade take part in Aimsweb testing. In Kindergarten, the students are tested on their ability to manipulate and move a computer mouse in preparation for future Acuity testing. They are also tested on their letter naming and letter sounds skills in a one-minute time frame. Another example of a test involves math skills for first grade students. They are asked to count as high as possible, identify as many numbers as possible, determine quantity discrimination and identify missing numbers in a sequence. Among the tests for second grade students is one that involves the reading fluency on the number of words read correctly in one minute. An example of testing for fifth grade students involves applied math skills that include money, time and fractions as well as math computation skills. MOUNT VERNON


Acuity reading and math for kindergarten through second grade students helps prepare them for computerized tests such as ISTEP, which begins in third grade. Teachers and administrators agreed the assessment testing helps to establish benchmarks for each student. The state has mandated that schools set aside time for additional instruction, also called Response to Intervention (RTI). The assessment tests identify students who learn well below average, compared to other students. This qualifies them to receive additional help utilizing research-based instructional kits. Waugaman explained the goal is to assist these students in reaching a higher learning level. Letters are sent home to parents of students who are being monitored on their progress. Waugaman explained the teachers are allowed to choose the additional instruction kits they would like to teach to students who qualify for RTI time. Students whose needs are the same are grouped into classes, which mean some move to different classes for instruction by different teachers other than their primary class teacher. So, what happens with the students who function or learn at higher ability levels during RTI time? Waugaman stated those students are allowed to do other coursework or read their Accelerated Reading (AR) books. Waugaman also explained new school-wide behavior plans for voice levels within the school and the bus. She explained the new voice level policy is easier for students and teachers to enforce as everyone must follow the same rules. Students who ride the bus will receive awards for good behavior after 10 consecutive days. Those who do not exhibit good behavior will be required to watch a DVD on appropriate behavior and complete a worksheet. If bad behavior continues, students will be expelled from the bus. Waugaman stated she would like to keep the communication open between the school, its teachers and parents. She invited parents to contact her at any time during the school day with questions or concerns. She added the community council meetings are meant to act as a means to discuss school plans openly with parents. It also allows parents the opportunity to ask questions or address concerns with Waugaman in an open format. There are two more community council meetings planned during the school year. The next one will be held February 12 and the next one will be held in May with a date to be announced later.

Lady Vikings defeat Patriots By Dave Pearce If you had to choose one word to describe the North Posey volleyball team this year, it would probably be ‘exciting.’ With a little luck, the Vikings could easily be sitting with a 7-2 record. But two losses in the fifth set of the game on two separate occasions this year have the Vikings looking at an improved 5-4 record heading into action this week. But in a week in which the team split in a pair of five-setters, the Vikings won the right one when it comes to the Pocket Athletic Conference. After letting one get away from them at Central early in the week, the Lady Vikings rebounded to outlast Heritage Hills on Thursday. “There was not a dull moment in that game,” Barnard said of the Heritage Hills match. “I’m pretty sure there were some tears of joy after a good solid win in five games. The games we have lost have all been really rough matches…four games that were very even or that 32-30 game at Bosse. It was really good to have a close match and finally find a way to pull it out.” To say the match was close might be an understatement. The Vikings dropped the first two sets by identical scores of 25-23, despite seven kills from Ashley Schorr and three each from Hannah Harness and Kristen Schorr in the first game and five kills from Ashley Schorr and three from Harness in the second. So to win, the Vikings would have to fight back from two sets down and win the final three. And that’s just what they did. The Viking defense and offense clicked in the third game as A. Schorr had seven kills, Harness had four, Marlee Sims three, Eli Schapker and K. Schorr each had two and Mackenzie Morrow had one in a dominating 25-16 performance for the Vikings. In the fourth set, both teams picked it up but A Schorr continued to dominate with eight kills while K. Schorr had four and Morrow had three to help spread the attack around a bit. But the Vikings eeked out a 25-22 decision to force a fifth and deciding set to 15 points. Even the 15 points were not enough to separate the teams as the Vikings pulled out a North Posey setter Eli Schapker shows she can get up with the best of players during 16-14 win in the set to win the game. a block attempt in recent volleyball action.

Mount Vernon showing signs of life and fire as the Wildcat defense forced a fumble on an Aces third and one play with 6:26 left in the third quarter of play. But Mount Carmel’s defense was just too much for the Wildcats to handle Friday night and the visiting Cats had to punt to the Aces yet again. Mount Carmel would take that possession and march down the field setting up the final touchdown of the game, a six yard run by running back Sean Flickinger to put the Wildcats away 45-3. After the game Wildcat coach Paul Maier was not happy with his team’s effort on the field and promised that the team will find a

way to get things straightened out this week. “We were not ready at all as a football team for tonight’s game,” Maier said.” It’s terribly disappointing. But that will not happen again. We have to make sure we take care of what we need to during the week and be ready come game time. We will be focused and ready to play next week.” The loss puts Mount Vernon at 0-3 on the season and 0-1 in Big Eight Conference play. The Wildcats play just two more times at home and have the rest of their games on the road. If they are to turn things around they will need to start this Friday at home as they host Vincennes Lincoln at 7 p.m.

‘Viking boys’ soccer’ continued from Page B1 of a more mature team. “We wouldn’t have handled this if something like this had happened last year,” Hines said. “We actually played very, very well the last ten minutes of the half. We had some opportunities and then with Reed being out of goal, it hurt us. Quinten did a good job but he is only about five feet tall. He stepped up and played well but Reed can kick the ball well out to the half and we just weren’t getting the ball out of there.” “But for Quentin not to have played in goal at all and to be put into that position, he made some brilliant saves that helped us,” Hines said. “Unfortunately, we lost 2-1.” Earlier in the week, the Vikings were dominant at Oakland City, defeating the Wood Memorial Trojans by a score of 4-0. “We had the ball for almost the whole game,” Hines said. “If we would have been playing at North Posey, the score would probably have been more lop-sided but their field is not real long so it made for a more compact game.”

Jace Brandenstein added two goals to his total for the year while Janis Heipmann added two. “We had been working on controlling the ball and making good decisions when we have time on the ball,” Hines said. “We ended up just making simple passes that turned into attacks. The field was so compact that it made it tougher for us but I thought we did a really good job of moving off the ball to get opportunities.” Heathcotte pitched a shut-out in his final full game of the year. The Vikings will play Boonville on Tuesday and Pike Central on Thursday this week. They will take a 5-2 record into the week and the team will have to rally. “Last year, we were giving up about four goals a game and this year so far, we had been averaging about one goal per game. If everyone steps up, we can still be a sectional contender,” Hines said. “But everyone will have to step up their game. We’ll just have to see if they are ready for the challenge.”

nah Harness had 11 kills and Kristen Schorr had ten kills and each of them had only one error,” North Posey Coach Natalie Barnard said. “That’s a pretty good hitting percentage.” Eli Schapker finished the night with an amazing 62 assists and Emma Werry, playing libero, had 32 digs. But equally impressive was 20 digs from A. Schorr as well as 17 from Brooke Bender, 15 from Madison Feldhake, seven from Schapker, and six from Harness. Sims had four, Morrow had three, and Jordan Werry had two. “We had three players with more than 10 kills apiece on the night so you are going to get a lot of assists,” Barnard said with pride of her hitters and her setter. “Eli did a great job of setting the ball up and moving the ball around on the court. And Emma Werry is becoming a very good libero. She is just all over the court and she has improved some much from her first game to this game. She is just non-stop.” Earlier in the week, the Vikings let one slip away at Central, also in a five-set match. The Vikings won the second and fourth sets before bowing out in the fifth. “They had a great middle and a pretty decent setter, as well,” Barnard said of the Bears. “She was pretty smart about watching our defense and getting a tip here and there. But hopefully, we can get that fixed.” Compared to the upcoming week, last week could be considered a light week. The Vikings will travel to Mount Vernon on Tuesday before hosting Memorial on Thursday and then traveling back to Mount Vernon on Saturday for the Mount Vernon Invitational Tournament. “If we are going to have these close matches, now is a great time to have them,” Barnard concluded. “They are not conference matches yet the intensity and the pressure to win is there. They get the girls excited about volleyball. These kinds of matches show just how much heart these girls have that they are willing to put it all out there. They go two-and-a-half hours of non-stop volleyball. That’s better than anything we could do in practice. They are just not willing to give up.”

‘Wildcat volleyball’ continued from Page B1 as they played at the Reitz Panthers. Mount Vernon found a tough matchup in the Panthers but were able to weather the Reitz storm beating them 23-25, 25-20, 19-25, 25-21, 1510 to win their second game this week. With both these wins the Mount Vernon volleyball team finds themselves with a record of 6-4 (1-0 in Big Eight play). The Lady

Cats have not only played a tough schedule early on but will continue to find more stiff competition in the weeks to come. Mount Vernon will be at home this week hosting the North Posey Vikings Tuesday and Boonville Pioneers on Thursday. The week will end with the Mount Vernon Invitational on Saturday morning at 9:30 a.m.

Posey County Soil & Water Conservation News Issue No. 7

September 2013

Contributed by Victor Shelton, NRCS State Agronomist/ Grazing Specialist

I was glad for rain recently; it was certainly needed. I would have really preferred it to come slightly slower than it did, but wouldn’t have turned it down no matter how it came. I personally did not see any runoff and that is good, with adequate cover and actively growing forages, I think I captured most of it and replenished the ground reserves. When asked what is the number one management item with pasture, my answer is always “cover, maintain the cover”. That is so true for many reasons, but for the moment, retarding and capturing runoff from a rain and increasing the ability of that water to infiltrate into the soil, store more of it for later and protect it from evaporation can make all the difference some years. Last fall, after weeks of severe drought and when the rains finally started to find us again, there was clearly positive and visual differences in pastures where cover and proper “stop grazing” heights were maintained compared to pastures that were allowed to be grazed shorter than…well…than it should be. An old acquaintance of mine would say, “It was grubbed down to the quick.” It was obvious the maintained cover and adequate reserve made a huge difference. I did some clippings on comparable sites, same soils, same forages looking at and measuring the new regrowth, first four weeks and then six weeks after the first good, regrowth-starting rain and was amazed with the difference in all cases. At six weeks, the pastures with good cover and maintained, adequate, what I like to call, “stop grazing heights” ranged from 2.2 to 3.1 times more yield than the unmaintained sites by dry weight. I found this very interesting, though somewhat anecdotal in nature it was data that I had not looked at before. It is certainly something to think about. Last year with the shortage of pasture and hay, any additional forage was a blessing. I think there was some synergy going on too, but that was made possible because of the cover. Now, the cool-season grasses should start their autumn rebound as moisture becomes replenished and hopefully continues, providing some potentially really good growth for fall or winter grazing. I have to say again, “grazing” not haying. Although we often have plenty of growth for a fall hay crop, drying conditions are more challenging and unless the field is not grazable for one reason or another, you would be much better off and money ahead to graze it or stockpile it for later in the winter if at all possible, it is not going anywhere! That forage can wait until you need it ~ in the field. It is beneficial, for at least some of the fall growth, to wait until it is dormant (roughly 3 less than 26 degree nights) before grazing it. By waiting, energy reserves are not compromised for next spring’s growth. This is

an excellent practice for any fields that may have been grazed shorter than prescribed during the year and allow time for the forage plants to have a little R&R. Early harvested corn residue can be grazed if good conditions are present which will allow for more rested pasture. Any time off of a pasture is that much more time for regrowth and that many more days to keep on grazing. Anything the animal can harvest itself instead of you carrying it to it is money in your pocket. With cattle prices up and with more potential for profit on gain, some supplementation might be warranted…with a sharp pencil and caution. Gains on high quality forages can be very good and compete quite well with most fed feeds and at a cheaper price. On lower quality forages, additional energy and sometimes protein is advantageous and/or needed. Energy is more likely to be the limiting factor than protein in most cases. It is important that any fed items don’t disrupt the sensitive flora of the rumen required to break down forages. Lowering the pH below 6.0 is extremely hard on fiber digesting bacteria, at 5.8 it is pretty much certain death of that flora. Fiber digesting bacteria prefer a pH of 6.0 to 6.8 and starch digesting bacteria 5.5 to 6.0….middle line for both, which is hard to maintain, is 6.0. Soybean hulls and corn gluten generally don’t lower the pH of the rumen as much, corn and most whole grains can drop it rapidly and can even cause acidosis. Hay does not seem to be much of an issue this year; however quality hay could be. The early hay season was not a good one for dry hay. And with all the rain, energy may not be quite as high as normal; better to test and supplement as needed. I hope you seriously consider all of the potential grazing opportunities out there. Everyone should be asking themselves, “Where should the livestock be grazing next?” “What should we be taking advantage of right now to obtain the best nutrition possible for the livestock? Especially in the areas that have received a little rain and now have improved soil moisture; we still have adequate time yet to get some annuals planted for some nice fall and possibly spring grazing. I really like the combination of cereal rye, oats and a forage type turnip. The oats and turnips usually do quite well in the fall and provide lots of good grazing opportunities while the rye will lay low and then take off strong next spring. With adequate moisture I have seen yields of 3 or more tons per acre produced in a very short period of time. Ideally, these stands should be strip-grazed with a back fence if you want to try and get multiple grazings…the weather does play a big part though. You need to have some moisture and ideally good growing conditions for several weeks with a late freeze. The turnips will tolerant colder conditions than the oats and quite often can be grazed even under snow. This appears to be the beginning of a really nice fall, hopefully it will be. Fall is quite often my favorite time of year and sometimes some of the best weather, enjoy it. As always, keep on grazing!

Soil Health Expo 2013 Several conservation groups from South West Indiana recently combined efforts in order to present “Soil Health Expo 2013” held at the Vanderburgh County 4 -H Center in August. The event was an overall success with nearly 150 farmers, landowners and conservation professionals in attendance to learn the latest scientific recommendations in controlling herbicide resistant weeds and improving soil health through the Conservation Cropping Systems Initiative (CCSI). Tom Bechman, editor of the Indiana Prairie Farmer, facilitated the event. Mr. Bechman’s knowledge of farming in Indiana was of great benefit as he introduced speakers and interacted with the audience and farmer panel during the expo. “Herbicide Resistant Weeds” was the first topic of the morning. Dr. Aaron Hager, Associate Professor of Weed Science of the University of Illinois, presented a very timely program focusing on the biology and management of weed species that are becoming increasingly common and problematic in Illinois and Indiana. Larry Huffmeyer, CCSI Farmer and Syngenta Representative (retired), presented a program and lead discussion on residual effects of herbicides on establishment of cover crops, proper chemical selection and nozzling for weed control. Larry’s common-sense, easy-to-understand methods to effectively scout and control weeds in a conservation cropping system were of great interest to attendees. Following an excellent catered lunch from the Hornville Tavern, Hans Kok, CCSI Representative, expanded more on the many benefits of Conservation Cropping System that utilizes diversified cover crops, pest and nutrient management and no-till. Kurt Stahl, CCSI Farmer discussed his challenges and success while in the process of developing a conservation cropping system that builds soil health and profitability. John Neufelder, Purdue University Extension Agent, discussed the new commercial and organic fertilizer management requirements recently released by the Indiana State Chemist. The farmer panel consisted of Mark Anson (Knox County), Phil Carter (Vigo County), Ray McCormick (Knox County) and Marty Finney (Daylight Farm Supply). Each participant discussed their challenges and success with the different ways in establishment of cover crop seed – aerial application, drilling and broadcasting. Several vendors set-up booths and sponsors contributed financial support for the Soil Health Expo including Alliance of Indiana Rural Water, Aquatic Control, Baker Seed, Beck’s Hybrids, Cabela’s Trophy Properties, CFCO, Inc., CISCO Company, Daylight Farm Supply, Donut Bank, Elberfeld State Bank, Goedde Oil, Inc., Hoosier Energy, Kiesel Enterprises, La Cross Forage & Turf, Midwest Ag Finance, Mossy Oak Properties, Pioneer Seed, Re/Max Midwest Real Estate-Tim Mason, Solar Sources, Inc., Springfield Plastics, Syngenta, Taylor Ag Services and Wal-Mart. A big thank you to all sponsors and vendors for helping make this event a huge success! The event was sponsored by the Indiana Conservation Partnership: x Soil and Water Conservation Districts of Gibson, Pike, Posey, Vanderburgh and Warrick County x -USDA/Natural Resource Conservation Service x -Purdue University Extension Service

Posey County’s Sugarberry Tree Did you know Posey County is home to a national champion tree? The Sugarberry (Celtis laevigata Willd) , is a National Champion Tree nominated by Lyman & Stewart Roll, at 6201 Springfield Road in Posey County owned by Jennifer & Michael Tyner. A whopping 25.3 feet in circumference!!! At 91.5 feet high and 96 feet wide canopy it is bigger than any tree known in the area. Sugarberry is a native tree that typically grows up to 80 feet in height and up to 3 feet in diameter. It is a short lived tree, probably living not more than 150 years. It has a broad crown formed by spreading branches that are often drooped. The bark is light gray in color and can be smooth or covered with corky warts. The leaves are 2-4 inches long and 1 to 2 inches wide and gradual-

ly taper to a point that is often curved. The flowers appear just before or with the leaves in the spring. The drupes or fruit have a thick skin and the surface has a netlike pattern. They will range in color from orange to reddish-brown. Sugarberry is found growing in sandy loam or rocky soils along streams, in bottomlands, and in woodlands. Trees in the Celtis family are among the best food and shelter plants for wildlife. Sugarberry and Hackberry trees are the only host for a species of butterfly known as the Hackberry Emperor butterfly. The trees produce a fruit that is relished by birds. The sweet fruit can also be enjoyed by humans and Native Americans used the fruit for medicinal purposes. Sugarberry ranges south from southeastern Virginia to southern Florida, west to central Texas and northeastern Mexico and north to western Oklahoma, southern Kansas, Missouri, southern Illinois, southern Indiana and western Kentucky. Its range overlaps the southern part of the range of common hackberry (Celtis occidentalis).

Cost share will be paid at $15/acre up to 75 acres for aerial application and $20/acre up to 75 acres for traditional application. An application must be submitted and W-9 form on file in the office for participation. Funds are paid on a first-come, firstserved basis with the submittal of receipts. Get on the list today. This is a great way to try cover crops, you know you want to! BUFFER BENEFITS OFF & ON THE FARM and reduce noise and odor coming from a farm. Buffers also give many benefits for local wildlife. They provide food and shelter for many wildlife species like quail, rabbit and other fun-to-watch species while serving as corridor connectors that enable wildlife to move safely from one habitat area to another. The word “buffer” may evoke a safety net, a filter or an area of shrubs and trees. In the landscape context, that’s pretty much what it is. A buffer, when referred to by a conservationist at the USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service, is a small strip of land of trees, shrubs and other plants. This strip provides protection from things like wind or pollutants entering waterways and plays a crucial role as a safety net for the environment. Conservation buffers trap sediment, fertilizers, pesticides, pathogens and heavy metals. To do this, buffers act like natural filters, removing nutrients or sediment that runs off the field, keeping them from entering waterways like Big Creek and the Wabash and Ohio Rivers. If properly used, buffers remove more than 50% of nutrients and pesticides, 60% of some pathogens and 75% of sediment. In addition to trapping pollutants, buffers slow water runoff and increase the amount of water entering the ground, recharging our aquifers and protecting communities downstream from flooding. During the winter buffers help trap snow and cut down on soil erosion in areas with strong winds. They also can protect livestock and wildlife from harsh weather, shield buildings from wind damage

A conservation buffer’s trees and shrubs shade streams and cool the water, making the water a better home for plants and critters. Without trees and shade, streams become warmer, lowering populations of aquatic species. Also, buffer trees and shrubs stabilize streams by holding the earth in place with their roots. In addition to their vital services, buffers simply beautify the landscape, enhancing the natural aesthetics of a farm or ranch. NRCS helps private landowners create buffers on their land, along waterways and between fields. If used as part of a comprehensive conservation system, buffers make good use of areas not ideal for growing crops or other uses.

For Indiana farmers, recognition for the work they do every day is nice, but not necessary. They consider the thought and effort they put into protecting soil health and water quality part of their job description as a farmer. In August, 46 farming entities representing 37 Indiana counties were honored as winners of the 2013 River Friendly Farmer Award. The ceremony took place at the Indiana State Fairgrounds during Farmers' Day at the Indiana State Fair. Lt. Governor Sue Ellspermann, Secretary of Agriculture and Rural Development, presented the award to winners, along with Indiana Farm Bureau, Inc. President Don Villwock. Also on hand were Indiana Association of Soil and Water Conservation Districts President Jeff Meinders and Indiana NRCS State Conservationist Jane Hardisty. State recognition for Indiana farmers who do an excellent job of managing their farms in an environmentally and economically sound way that protects and improves Indiana's soil and water resources for future generations.

in the Big Creek Watershed. Filter strips help filter the soil, fertilizers and pesticides before the water enters the stream. The retaining lake slows the flow of water and allow stuff to settle out before leaving the lake. Wetlands and woodlands also keep pollution out of the water. Conservation tillage practices prevent erosion. The Reineke's feel it is important to maintain wildlife habitat and wants to stabilize creek banks. They want to keep soil, fertilizers and pesticides out of the water. Filter strips help protect wildlife habitat, stabilize the creek banks and provide access to creeks to manage weeds. The reduced tillage and no-till help keep soil on the fields and nutrients out of the water. The farm has natural areas such as wetlands and woodlands. Reineke Farms have planted wildlife areas with the CP-33 and CP38 programs and have a lake that helps with erosion control.

Two face drug related charges Friday evening, August 30, at approximately 6:15 p.m., Indiana State Police responded to a residence located at 12900 Cavalier Lane in Poseyville to investigate a suspicious chemical odor. James Fernando Price, 40, answered the front door when troopers arrived. Price’s seven-year-old son was also present. Troopers Wes Alexander and Brandon Deig immediately detected a strong odor of ammonia coming from inside the residence. Further investigation revealed Crystal Miller, 29, also resides at the residence with her 13 and eightyear-old daughters, but they were not present. A short time later, Miller arrived at the residence without her daughters. When troopers and officers from the Posey County Drug Task Force searched the residence they found numerous ingredients commonly used to manufacture meth and a meth lab. The chemical odor was so strong inside the residence the

Crystal Dawn Miller windows and doors had to be open to ventilate the residence. Price and Miller were arrested and taken to the Posey County Jail where they are currently being held on bond. Price’s son was released to his mother. Arrested and charges: • Crystal Dawn Miller, 29, 12900 Cavalier Lane, Poseyville, IN 1. Manufacturing Meth, Class B Felony 2.

Building Corp. organized for MV By Lois Mittino Gray The three members of the newly-formed Mount Vernon Public Safety Building Corporation met with City Attorney Beth McFadin Higgins on Friday afternoon in the City Hall Annex to organize and learn their responsibilities in handling the construction money. Mel Levin was elected as President. He conducted the election of Jerry Rutledge as Vice-President and Bill Osborn as Secretary/ Treasurer. They were elected to oneyear terms. Higgins explained the next step was to adopt the bylaws prepared by the bond counsel to meet statutory requirements by law. Acting counsel is Scott E. Peck of the law firm Faegre, Baker and Daniels, Evansville office. All three signed the bylaws and accepted minutes of the announcement of the public meeting. Since all three of them are volunteers working with large money sums, Levin asked if they have indemnification if something amiss occurs or “do we need to get insurance right away?” Higgins assured the trio that they would fall under the umbrella of the city and be covered. Higgins began the information session by telling the history of the planned structure.

“About two years ago, it was noticed on a tour that the current fire/police station has rotting foundational supports. A new site would be needed and Dausmann Motor Company soon came up for sale along with the adjoining Shrader’s Marathon lot,” she explained. The city entered an agreement for the property at 311 College Avenue. The Black Township Trustee had monies available to make the purchase as long as it would be expended toward fire improvements. Since the plans call for additional fire bays to be built exiting on College Avenue, it met the criteria and $400,000 was donated for purchase. The Trustee will then deed the property to the city. The city will need to bond the money to pay for the improvements and redesign of the building to make the combined new police/fire station at approximately $900,000. The city can only bond a certain amount of the assessed value in a conventional manner from secured tax receipts. “To make sure that too much debt limit is not used up in case of a catastrophe, cities and schools use a building bond corporation like the one we are organizing today,” she said. When the city gets the deed, it will turn it over to the new Bond Corporation.

back to the city. To begin this action, the city received a petition signed by at least fifty taxpayers saying a new safety building is needed and a lease agreement with the bond corporation is necessary. The city assessor then certified all names as taxpayers. A public hearing was held on September 5 and there were no remonstrators present. The Common Council went ahead and authorized Mayor John Tucker to adopt the lease agreement. Higgins said she needed a few days to put in the names of officers and get the lease agreement ready for Levin and Osborn to sign next week. The city attorney assured the new corporation that “we are right on track using the timeline we made back in the spring.” Rutledge wondered if core drilling was done on the site as it was used as a prior gas station. Higgins said it was done and passed all phase one environmental plans. He also questioned who actually owns the property now as citizens are complaining that the site is looking overgrown and weedy. Higgins said the deed is still with the Black Township Trustee, but she agreed to call them and perhaps some volunteer fire men can help with weed control. Levin emphasized that all local banks know about the bonds and be notified if they would like to be the depository to hold that goodly chunk of cash. Levin was told that two banks have voiced interest so far in buying the bonds , but all banks with local branches in town will be given that opportunity to hold deposits and buy.

Yard, Garage and Rummage Sales In business for over 10 years, Twice As Nice Consignments will host its FALL/WINTER COMMUNITY SALE on September 20th and 21st at the National Guard Armory in Evansville. This semi-annual event is for local families looking to find clean, gently used children’s clothing, toys, and baby items. Consignors register online and follow guidelines to price and prep their items. Items are brought to the Armory, and consignors receive 70% of the selling price. Twice as Nice Consignments is locally owned by an Evansville mom who learned about these types of sales while visiting the South in 2000. As its popularity has grown over the years, similar sales have sprouted in the area. It’s a win-win event for the community as consignors make money for their iitems, shoppers save money, and unsold items are donated tto local charities. For more info, visit their website at www.
