Sixth River Days hits a home run By Dave Pearce The Mount Vernon River Days ‘came of age’ this year, in it’s sixth year. A more user-friendly set-up along with wonderful fall-like weather put the relatively new festival over the top. One of the original organizers, Kay Kilgore, said she has trouble believing how much the festival has grown and what it has become. “What a fantastic Mount Vernon River Days in 2013,” Kilgore said. “The community’s support this year has been overwhelming. When a small group of us were brought together six-and-a-half years ago it was with the intention of forming a one-time event to celebrate the Lincoln Flatboat coming to Mount Vernon. It didn’t take much discussion before we all decided this was something Mount Vernon needed every year and not just one time.” Viola - Mount Vernon River Days was created, Kilgore continued. “Thank you everyone for supporting and believing in our vision. And thank you for allowing us to be your conduit in bringing our businesses, organizations, churches, and families in this wonderful community together in a way we’ve all been craving for years. You all amaze me and I’m so Mount Vernon River Days Parade Grand Marshal, Mount Vernon businessman Larry Williams, rides though the parade. Friends joked that this was probably the only time he sat down throughout the festival. Photo by Dave Pearce

Detective Kruse also played an audio recorded telephone conversation the victim had with Jones on August 24, 2012 before he was arrested and charged with various sexual offenses in Warrick and Posey County. Jones admitted to the victim during the audio recorded telephone conversation that he had repeatedly abused her as a young child. Jones has also been charged in Warrick County with Count 1: Incest, a Class B Felony; Count 2: Child Molesting, a Class B Felony; and Count 3: Child Molesting, a Class C Felony.

Well, we all had a good time at Alexander’s sixth birthday party, and as I watched and enjoyed the DEAREST events of that day, I MADELEINE automatically compared BY CATHY b i r t h d a y POWERS parties from the present to those of the past. Crepe paper streamers and little party hats have given way to having a ‘bounce house’ in the back yard or going to someplace like Chucky Cheese. First of all, the three of you are lucky enough to have been born in reasonably warm months. Yours is on March 2, so the weather is still a little unsettled, but August and September for Issabella and Alexander pretty much guarantees temperate conditions. My birthday is January 18, and all too often, when my mother attempted to have a party for me, there was snow, and nobody came. I had several friends and classmates who were able to have summer birthday parties, and I was always envious. People came in lightweight summer clothing, and we played outside games, had wiener roasts, and it just seemed so much nicer. One thing that hasn’t changed through the years is the fact that babies are born in every season, and many people have conflicts with their big day of the year. For instance, Grandpa Don has his birthday two days before Christmas, and even though we make an

effort to separate the two events, it is just too close. I think that one of the biggest differences is the cake itself. Since commercial bakeries are now able to put photographic images on cake tops, that is really quite a changed look. However, I am totally certain that the bakery cakes from my youth tasted much better, and I have no idea why. From the cake itself to the frosting, they were just better. I have asked professionals and nobody seems to know. I will bet that many people remember the sugary roses that used sit atop cakes, but I haven’t seen those in a long time. And, of course, the gifts are bigger and better now, but ironically, most children are not as impressed as they used to be. This is nobody’s fault; it is just another sign of the times. So much more is available all throughout

important parts have thankfully stayed the same, and I hope they always will. One’s family gathers to honor whichever member of the clan is becoming another year older. And there are still school parties, or home parties for friends, as well. Even with everyone’s hectic schedules, we set aside time to make that person feel loved, appreciated and special. I have to wonder how things will change in your lifetime, but I hope that you and the rest of the family will always be surrounded by loved ones and have many joyous birthdays

The descendants of Charles Kessler and Nancy Ann Roberts will hold their reunion Sunday, September 22, 2013 at the Senior Citizens Center in Mount Vernon, Indiana from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m. Relatives of Charles and Nancy Kessler include the John Pierce, Elizabeth Blackburn, and James Kessler families.

the year, so gifts don’t seem nearly as cherished and anticipated. It makes selecting the perfect birthday gift a real challenge, even though there is so very much more to pick from. Of course, I had lots of celebrations for your dad and my other two children, and those are wonderful memories. When they got a little older, we went out to the movies, or to get pizza. I can remember losing control of the group a few times, and my carefully-planned games were replaced by behavior I really should not describe. A little girl at one of your Aunt Heather’s parties hid under my kitchen table and would not come out. But those years went by all too quickly, and the chaos of kid parties is now replaced with a nice meal for adults. It is expected but not nearly as much fun. I take a lot of photos almost every day, let alone birthdays, and most of us post them quickly on Facebook for all of our friends to see. How different this is. It wasn’t all that long ago that ‘old-fashioned’ cameras still used film, and folks had to wait for the prints to come back to the drugstore. It was usually a week or more before the family could see their children blowing out the candles. So, yes, Madeleine, many changes have been made to birthday celebrations in my lifetime, but the

COMMUNITY

Local 4-H volunteers recognized at Indiana State Fair Tim and Pat Hulsey were recognized on Saturday, August 10, 2013, for 25 years of volunteer service as Posey County 4-H Club Leaders of the Diligent Ones 4-H Club. Each year, the Indiana 4-H Foundation and State 4-H Program at Purdue recognize the outstanding contributions of adult 4-H volunteers who help make the 4-H youth development program a success. According to Dr. Renee McKee, State 4-H Program Leader, “The hard work and dedication of 4-H volunteers significantly contribute to the success of the 4-H Youth Development Program in Indiana. Although we feel certain that viewing the accomplishments of the young people with whom they have worked is rewarding to volunteers, we are also committed to recognizing them on this special day at the Indiana State Fair.” In 2013, 373 individuals were recognized as tenured 4-H volunteers, representing a total of 9,730 years of service to the Indiana 4-H Program. Tenured volunteers are first recognized once they have completed 20 years of service and are subsequently recognized every five years. Each tenured volunteer received a gift with the 4-H emblem and their years of service. The volunteers were also invited to a meal following the rec-

ognition program. Primary sponsors of the tenured volunteer program and recognition were Beck’s Hybrids, Reynold’s Farm Equipment, Farm Bureau Insurance Companies, Indiana 4-H Foundation, and Purdue University Extension Service. If you would like to show your support of Posey County 4-H through monetary donation or volunteer commitment, please call 812-838-1331 or email poseyces@purdue.edu. You may also check us out online at www.extension.purdue.edu/Posey or stop by the Purdue Extension-Posey County office in the basement of the Coliseum Building, Room 29, in downtown Mount Vernon. Donors can be assured that their contributions go directly to local 4-H programming and that the Indiana 4-H mission to provide real-life educational opportunities that develop competent young leaders who positively impact their community is being met. The Posey County 4-H youth development program will continue to develop young people with integrity and character who are the future leaders of our communities, but this goal will only be met through the generous support of adults who care about them and their future.

United Way Campaign Begins - Consolidated GB is Pacesetter The United Way of Posey County will start its 2013 Campaign with a kick-off breakfast Thursday, September 19 at 8 a.m. at the Alexandrian Public Library, 115 West Fifth Street, Mount Vernon, Indiana. Breakfast will be provided by Larry Williams. At the kick-off, Dave Pearce will be the featured speaker. The Posey County News Owner and Publisher is a long-time community supporter, including involvement with Relay for Life, United Way, Salvation Army, Posey County 4-H Fair, Mount Vernon River Days, M-Club of Mount Vernon, Poseyville Autumnfest, Habitat for Humanity, as well as several area food pantries. This year, Consolidated Grain & Barge Company (CGB) is a Pacesetter for the United Way campaign. They ran their campaign early and results will be announced at the United Way of Posey County campaign kickoff on

September 19. This early support and enthusiasm will get this year’s campaign off to a good start. Consolidated Grain and Barge Company (CGB) is a leading company that services the grain, livestock, and transportation industry. They have been dedicated to all of its customers’ needs for over 30 years. CGB is located inside the Ports of Indiana Mount Vernon facility where they process soybeans into meal, oil, and hull. They also merchandise a variety of grains with the capabilities to load out via truck, rail, and barge. The company provides a full range of services for farmers in the Midwest, which include financing, risk management and buying, storing, processing, selling and shipping locally grown corn, beans, wheat and milo.

port the United Way campaign through special days at some local restaurants.

North Posey School Board, from Page 1A er than any other in the area. Superintendent Dr. Todd Camp explained that preschool is not a state-funded program. School board members chose to set their standards higher and hire only licensed teachers, which are paid at a higher rate than non-licensed teachers. Camp explained the school district lost money, to the tune of $33,000, last year by offering two pre-school classes. This year, they decided to have only one class. Mark Greathouse, sup-

ported Brooke’s concern over the number of students in the class. He stated there are a wide variety of students who are not on the same level as the others. Some have been in a school setting before, while others have not. He advised his daughter was in the program last year and has brought home the same worksheets and is learning the same curriculum as last year. Angie Wannamuehler assured the parents that the pre-school is using only state approved curriculum based on Common Core standards set in February 2012. Board members approved an agreement with AdTec to administer the E-rate reimbursement program at a cost of $1,590 per year for three years. In return, the company helps the school corporation recover $9,000 to $10,000 in reimbursements. Dr. Camp stated new districting lines for voters will be discussed at the upcoming October board meeting. The date has been changed from its usual Monday date to Tuesday, due to the Fall

break vacation. The next meeting is scheduled for October 15, at 6:30 p.m. in the corporation office.

General Thomas Posey DAR Project WTHH (Warm Toes Happy Hearts) was the project of collecting small quilts for pre-school children. The sixty-two quilts will be delivered to Tamassee DAR School in Tamassee, South Carolina. NSDAR supports six schools plus funding for Becone Indian College in Muskogee, Okla. and Chemawa Indian School located in Salem Ore. Warm Toes Happy Hearts will be collecting crib size quilts in 2014. The quilts can be fleece-tacked-quilted-knit-crochet as any thing goes with WTHH. The only requirement is a cover that makes warm toes happy hearts. This project was planned by Wanda Tichenor and Linda Downen. Quilts can be donated by non DAR members. This is a great community service for quilt/church groups. NSDAR is a giving organization across the United States with Objectives of Patriotic-Historical-Educational.

CHURCH Missionaries Around the World: “The Path of Hope September Newsletter” think about it, is pretty intimidating to a child. Though our arrival in Haiti went smoothly, we have had a sudden and abrupt dose of reality. On our first day, we lost power and were without power for well over 24 hours, which wasn’t bad, but irritating as we were trying to unpack in the dark (it gets dark in Haiti at 7 p.m.), find clean clothes, bathe, and get settled in. The next day we went to the super market to pick up some food. We purchased, tea bags $5, peanut butter $10, 10 pounds of sugar $10, Kool-Aid $5, a loaf of bread $3, one can of deodorant $3, and four cold drinks $2.75. Somehow, when it was all said and done, it was a total of $50.63. Our monthly budget allows for $233 worth of food. We are taking every action to ration our food while living in the city. Next we went to the toy store as the kids wanted to spend their chore money from America and buy a new toy. Traxxas bought a little truck that cost $20, and Merrigan bought a small package of modeling clay and face painting crayons for $10. Then we went to a store to buy Traxxas some underwear, as that was the one thing we forgot to pack. One package, 6 pairs, of Hanes underwear cost $15. We got home that night, ate a great PB&J (never did we appreciate it more) and then we cleaned up and bathed the chil-

dren, did bedtime stories, and began to settle down for the night. Again we were without electric after only an hour of it running. Also, due to us being the extra people at the house we were nearly out of water from drinking, bathing, washing, and cooking. God provided rain the next few days, thanks to the prayers of those who read our post on Facebook so we did not have to pay for a water truck to fill our cistern. These are just some of the struggles of living in a third world country… every day is faced with new challenges. Our power inverter that charges while the electricity is on, is not doing well. The batteries will only hold a few minute’s charge each as they are four years old and due to be replaced. We highly rely on these batteries and are in need of three solar panels to charge them (a cost of about $300 a piece) and twelve six volt deep cycle batteries to replace the worn out batteries (a cost of about $130 a piece) for the power inverter to keep the refrigerator/freezer running while the city electric is off. City electric usually turns on in the evenings for a few hours at a time… sometimes all night, sometimes an hour and sometimes not at all. We have very little room in the city and no ability to raise our own livestock or grow our own food. A refrigerator to us can mean life or death. Food purchased on

the street can be very expensive and not to the health standards that we are used to and can make us very sick due to bacteria. We have learned that living in Port au Prince, as we are temporarily, is quite expensive and difficult. We are quite literally surviving. We consume about 1,000-1,500 calories a day, mostly bread, beans, and rice with very little meat or fruits or vegetables. We drink water mostly, (Kool- Aid is a precious treat) and we burn every last calorie in the blistering heat working to fix vehicles, unpack, wash clothes, fix generators and inverters, and other daily chores. We have had so much on our minds lately as we were getting anxious and beginning to worry about surviving in Haiti and providing for our family. We sat down and on the bed and talked to God… we thanked him for the rain that we had just gotten and we began to cast our burdens on Him. He reminded us that we were called, as followers of Christ, to die. We are to die daily (Galatians 2:20, Galatians 5:24, John 12:24, Matthew 10:38, Luke 9:23)… And in dying, to live in Christ. We are to die to ourselves, to our family, die to our friends, and die to our future, so that

Ara and Wade Shirel with their children Merrigan and Trax Dear Friends, We are so excited to write to you from Haiti and let you all know how awesome our God is. We made it safely, on time, and with all (20 pieces) of our baggage on September 4. Walking through security and through the Miami Airport were quite a challenge with the kids, but God was so gracious to see us through our entire traveling experience. He provided us with amazing grace and provisions. We met up with another missionary from Tennessee and were invited to attend his pastor’s conference

in Saut d’ eau, where, in that village, there is a yearly Voodoo festival that takes place. We wish that we could share everything with you that we’ve experience here so far, but I’m afraid we could never afford to print and send out the paper newsletters to those receiving them by mail. Traxxas and Merrigan even made friends with a young Haitian boy at the Miami Airport and played, laughed and talked with him and his family. We were so blessed to see our children openly and willingly play with Haitian children, which, if you

Sermon of the Week: “Weigh in Time” By Pastor James Mullins, Turning Point Apostolic Church, Cynthiana Many people this time of year are ‘Watching their Weight’ Tips to reduce weight: First turn your head to the right, and then turn it to the left. Repeat the exercise every time you are offered something to eat. Dieting is a Weigh of Life It's not the minutes spent at the table that put on weight, it's the seconds. The toughest part of a diet isn't watching what you eat. It's watching what other people eat. Daniel 5:22-29 ‘22 And thou his son, O Belshazzar, hast not humbled thine heart, though thou knewest all this; 23 But hast lifted up thyself against the Lord of heaven; and they have brought the vessels of his house before thee, and thou, and thy lords, thy wives, and thy concubines, have drunk wine in them; and thou hast praised the gods of silver, and gold, of brass, iron, wood, and stone, which see not, nor hear, nor know: and the God in whose hand thy breath is, and whose are all thy ways, hast thou not glorified: 24 Then was the part of the hand sent from him; and this writing was written. 25 And this is the writing that was written, MENE, MENE, TEKEL, UPHARSIN. 26 This is the interpretation of the thing: MENE; God hath numbered thy kingdom, and finished it. 27 TEKEL; Thou art weighed in the balances, and art found wanting. 28 PERES; Thy kingdom is divided, and given to the Medes and Persians. 29 Then commanded Belshazzar, and they clothed Daniel with scarlet, and put a chain of gold about his neck, and made a proclamation concerning him, that he should be the third ruler in the kingdom.’ Nebuchaddnezzar ruled Babylon making it one of the most powerful empires in history. He surrounded the city by two great walls over 30 feet thick. It had towers and a large trench in front of it for security. Archaeologists discovered that the streets in the city were laid out in straight lines that intersect at right angles. The most notable street was named ‘Processional Way’ which ran along the eastern side of the southern palace, through the Ishtar gate. Processional Way was lined with 120 large stone lions. The ancient historian, Herodotus, said that Babylon “surpasses in splendor any city of the known world.” Belshazzar, was the grandson of Nebuchaddnazzar and his arrogance surpassed even that of his grandfather. It can be risky business when you get too big for your breeches. Let’s consider the word, TEKEL. Daniel said it meant ‘tried in the balances and found wanting.’ - Lacking. Belshazzar and all his prompt and splendor was weighed against God’s expectations. And that very night Babylon fell. Daniel 5:30-31 “In that night was Belshazzar the king of the Chaldeans slain. And Darius the Median took the kingdom, being about threescore and two years old.” Day by day we should weigh what we have granted to the world ---- against what we have denied to Jesus, in thought & deed. What did God weigh in the balance? It wasn’t the great walls or the Ishtar Gate. He didn’t weigh the Hanging Gardens (considered to be one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World).

His glory may be revealed through us as His instruments. God was reminding us that we must be All In on this, not lukewarm, but totally surrendered. We do not regret coming here… we would do it all over again. The price for us is not steep, because Christ paid a much steeper price… we owe Him everything. We hope that this newsletter finds each of you well. We thank you for your prayers and your support. Sorry for the length of this newsletter… there was just too much to say. Each one of you make it possible for us to serve the Lord here in Haiti. Please pray for us as we start up new bible studies with Haitians here in the city and our own bible studies. We want to guard our relationship with the Lord well. We cannot wait to get to Latou and share Christ with the locals. Please pray that the Lord will prepare the harvest in Latou, that all of our needed paperwork will get done quickly, our truck to make it here safely (so we may have transportation), and also for us to find affordable and durable tires for the truck for the rough and rocky mountain roads. May the Lord bless you all. Your Servants in Christ, Wade, Ara, Merrigan and Traxxas Shirel

God did not weigh the king’s treasury. God weighed Belshazzar himself. Just as Belshazzar of old many people today place value in things without Eternal value; and when God’s weighs in, they are left wanting… Lacking. Jesus said In Matthew 6:19-21 “19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: 20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.” On God’s scales it’s not the stuff He is inserted in; He is weighing your attitude, your gratitude, your obedience and your faith. When you’ve been weighed and found lacking, it’s similar to going to the ATM machine and finding insufficient funds to make your withdrawal. You can’t take it out of the bank if you haven’t put it in. Some may say that will never happen to me because God knows my heart. He sure does, and that my friend is the point. Take time today to take inventory of your life. What is the weight of the intangibles that God places value on in your life? What do they add up to? Which way will the scale tip with your essence on one side and the shed blood of Christ on the other? Will you be found lacking today? Take some time today to look at your life through God’s eyes; and when doing so remember these words: Revelation 3:15-18 “15 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. 16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. 17 Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: 18 I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.” Balance is important (balancing the scale of life/eternal life). Let’s consider some things that will add some weight to your side of the scale: Faith. “For without faith, it is impossible to please God.” Belief. “He that cometh to God must believe that He is…” Salvation: “Except a man is born of the water and the Spirit, he cannot enter into…” Jesus Name: “Neither is there salvation in any other, for there is none other name…” Holiness: “Holiness without which no man shall see the Lord.” Truth: “God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.” God’s Spirit: “Ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.” -Romans 8:9 Let’s sift it all down to one word: TRUTH! Jesus said, “Ye shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free.” And the truth is, how much you weigh is important when standing on God’s Scales. When Considering Your Weight today, why not come down and place all that you are on the scale(ALTAR).

Terry Campbell to perform at Maunie United Methodist Terry Campbell will be in concert at Maunie United Methodist Church on Sunday, September 22, 2013 at 6 p.m.. The Church is located at North and Emma Street, Maunie, (White County), Ill. The Public is welcome to attend a freewill offering will be received. Terry Campbell is a vibrant song evangelist who is on fire to share his passion for both music and the Lord. After high school he performed around the Midwest singing Country and Rock and Roll in a group called Dusty Blue and a group called Spike and the Sputniks. He sang with these groups through the 70’s, 80’s, and 90’ until 2002. Although Terry spent many years with these bands, God had another calling in-store for him. In June of 2007 Campbell gave his life to the Lord and his music turned in the direction of Gospel music. Today Campbell expresses brilliantly his dynamic voice and passion for the Lord through this God inspired music in churches and concerts all around the country.

SCHOOL

USI incoming class of 2017 tops charts This fall, the University of Southern Indiana welcomed an incoming class with the strongest credentials in its 48year history. The 1,709 first-time students in the entering class of 2017 represent high levels of academic achievement and potential. Average SAT scores are up six points over last year and up 51 points over the last three years. Average high school grade point averages also continue to exceed previous years at a GPA of 3.22 and, this fall, USI is one of the top college choices for area valedictorians. Total enrollment fell from 10,467 students in fall 2012 to 9,902 students for the 2013 fall semester. However, new enrollees in USI’s graduate studies programs increased by 12 percent this year. In recent years, the University has continued to raise academic standards, admitting only those students most likely to succeed at a four-year university. As a result, conditionally admitted students, who may not be as prepared for a successful college career, have been trimmed from a high of around eight percent, to just over one percent this year. The intentional choice to reduce those numbers

has contributed to lower enrollment but, overall, has increased the strength of the student body. “At age 48, USI has taken stock of where we’ve been and where we are headed. Continuing to raise academic standards is the right thing to do. The students we admit today have a history of academic success and are better prepared to work at a collegiate level than ever before,” said Dr. Linda L. M. Bennett, president. “USI is well-positioned for the future with strong academic programs and faculty and a beautiful, vibrant campus. We are committed to quality and helping all USI students get the edge.” The state of Indiana is focused on student success. State higher education funding is based upon a number of factors including: increase in the number of degrees awarded and an increase in students who graduate on time (within four years). Nearly half of USI’s overall funding comes from the state. USI is helping to secure its future both academically and financially by intently focusing on quality. “Top students have a number of choic-

es, so competing for these students is not easy,” said Dr. Ronald S. Rochon, provost. “We’re up to the challenge, which is already evident in our College of Nursing and Health Professions where our highly competitive and top-ranked nursing and occupational therapy programs admit students with average GPAs of 3.6 and 3.8 respectively.” USI continues to prepare many top students for college work while still in high school through the College Achievement Program (CAP), which experienced a record breaking year in 2012-2013. The University partnered with 27 high schools in 13 counties to offer 2,420 students more than 11,000 college credit hours across 20 available courses. These courses also are offered at a significantly reduced rate. Statistically, students who complete CAP courses are more likely to graduate college in four years. Finally, USI has a demonstrated partnership with area community colleges. An increasing number of transfer students are coming to the University from two-year institutions and are better prepared for the rigors of our coursework.

North Posey Back to School with school safety Safety is always on the minds of school officials and local law enforcement, especially when a new school year opens. At MSD of North Posey County, we take great pride in efforts to keep our students and staff safe. Here are some programs that highlight our efforts: Continued Training with the State for Best Practices Every building at MSD of North Posey has a school safety specialist who receives annual training in Indianapolis. Our building safety specialists bring back the best practices and other helpful information from all over the state. For example—If a building has been remodeled, the safety specialist will work with principals and staff on how best practices learned in annual training can serve the students during a tornado threat. Learning new practices every year helps our schools best protect our students. Collaboration with Local Law Enforcement Our goal is to efficiently protect our students and faculty against any emergency or situation by training admin-

istrators, staff, students and emergency personnel. monthly drills for fire, tornado, and earthquake continue through the year. We also include howto drills for situations where possible dangerous individuals are on or around school property. We discuss with our students how to react and what to do in various threatening situations such as: a threat in the community, an intruder in the building, or an intruder with a weapon trying to do harm. We also participate in training exercises with local law enforcement guiding us through ‘active shooter’ scenarios. School staff and parents alike do not like to think about what could happen in a school setting, considering the history of school shootings. However, our philosophy at MSD of North Posey is to over prepare, which is why we work so fully and actively training those involved. North Posey School’s SRO Program Our corporation is committed to continuing our SRO (School Resource Officer) Program. An area of concern

is to secure the funding to allow MSD of North Posey to maintain an armed officer in our schools through our SRO (School Resource Officer) Program. For the past two years, retired state trooper Frank Smith has taken on that role for North Posey School District. At this time, we are securing grants and alliances with law enforcement to ensure this program continues. ‘Officer Frank,’ enjoys the interaction with students by teaching classes on forensics, drugs, constitutional law, and citizenship, instilling responsibility for good and poor choices, and above all else, creating a safe, learning environment for our student body. Officer Smith has been truly dedicated to this mission. When asked if he thinks it is an important role, he stated, “The safety of my kids and my staff is my primary mission.” There is no doubt that Officer Smith truly looks at these students as if he was protecting his own kids. It is one more way we can keep our children safe. Collaboration with All Local Emergency Personnel

In years past, the northern and southern parts of the county created their own ‘Safety Round Table’ for the best possible communication between each of our schools and emergency personnel. Just recently MSD of North Posey merged with MSD of Mount Vernon to create a county-wide school safety organization named ‘The Posey County School Safety Commission.’ As a joint effort, this organization will help clarify needs and communication throughout the county. It will also help put in to place best practices for both school corporations to ensure our schools are the safest place we can make them for our children. Our goal is to not only keep the public informed about what we are doing within the schools, but also to remind parents the best way they can keep their children safe is to alert us of any concerns or suggestions. No matter how many hours of training or programs we create, parents and the community will always be our best ally when it comes to school safety.

BUSINESS Rapp provides Free Health Reform information sessions

Ryan Rapp of Crosspointe Insurance Advisors has made it a goal to change 100 peoples’ lives, meaning, to help 100 people get health insurance who can not be insured today. “I believe health reform will be good for small towns. Every small town has stories of people who ran small businesses, but along comes the responsibilities of a family. Then, those entrepreneurs have to get a job at a large employer providing health coverage,” states Rapp. “I don’t begrudge those employers one bit. They’re great, but small towns like New Harmony, Poseyville and Mount Vernon, are going to be able to have hardware & general stores, restaurants, pharmacies and professional services because of readily available health insurance coverage. Our big opportunity is right where we are now. It will be good for families because countless spouses work 30 to 40 hours a week, just to provide health coverage. Now, that parent may be able to stay home, or pursue other enterprises that afford better life and fam-

ily balances.” Rapp doesn’t subscribe to those who say health reform will be the best thing ever, or the other side that says that health reform means the world as we know it is ending. He believes it will be a unique American solution; meaning those who plan effectively, will benefit. There are many people who believe the Macroeconomic impact will be detrimental. “I am not speaking about that. I am here to help the person across from me. How can I help them be in a better situation, what are their health insurance options,” shares Rapp. “I just give them the information, learn about their current situation and goals, and advise them what plans will work best.” Rapp will hold Health Reform question and answer sessions at Mount Vernon's Alexandrian Public Library September 23, and 30 from 6 - 7 p.m., and Poseyville Carnegie Library September 19 and 25 from 3 - 7 p.m. You may contact him at 812-401-7207.

The Glenn Coleman of Commerce and as a boom division has facilities in Fairfield, Ill., and Cocoa, Fla. and manufactures curtain, fence, containment boom and fire boom, as well as a variety of other products. “We are quite pleased to add Glenn’s extensive expertise to our organization and are confident his contributions will be significant

and welcomed perspective on our business. Fortunately, the opportunity to evaluate our mutual fit was timely for both Glenn and Elastec/American Marine.” A native of St. Louis, Mo., Coleman is a graduate of the University of Missouri, a U.S. Navy veteran and a longtime business executive and own-

director of the White County Historical Society. He is the current president of the Kiwanis Club of Carmi. Coleman is a longtime admirer of Elastec/American Marine. “You cannot live in Carmi and not be proud of this company, inspired by it,” he said. “It has achieved so much.” He noted that the

company continues to expand and to ‘give back’ to the community. And he said he was ‘delighted’ when, early in his tenure as Carmi Chamber of Commerce executive director, the organization presented E/AM with its Large Business of the Year award. Gibbs brings years of experience in manufacturing and the oil industry with him to Elastec/American Marine, which he joined in June of this year. He spent nearly 20 years with Airtex Products in Fairfield, and prior to that time, he worked for two oilfield service companies. A native of Fairfield and still a resident of that city, he graduated from Fairfield Community High School and earned his associate’s degree in petroleum technology from Lincoln Trail College.

Find out more information about this year’s Kunstfest on Page A10. Gibbs received his professional human resources certificate in January 2010 and was recertified last February. The position involves keeping up with regulations and ensuring that E/AM is in compliance. Gibbs is also involved in developing organizational strategy. “Elastec/American Marine is growing, and with that comes growing pains,” he said. “We have to guide our way through those.” Another ‘vision’ he said, is safety. “If everyone goes home in as good a shape as they were when they arrived at work, or better, then we’ve done our job.”

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 self-directing, 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 clubs have planned special community service activities for the week, and all local third and fourth grade students will receive 4-H promotional materials at school. The Indiana 4-H Youth Development Program is part of the Purdue University Cooperative Extension Service. Nationally, the Extension Service is a part of the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture, and local leadership for the program is provided by 4-H Youth Extension Educators and trained 4-H adult volunteers. Whether you are eight, 18 or 80, now is the perfect time to become involved in Posey County 4-H. Each year Posey County 4-H clubs reorganize and enroll new youth members and adult volunteers. For more information, please contact the Purdue Extension-Posey County office by calling 812-838-1331 or email poseyces@purdue.edu.

OPINION

Birthday week culminates with defragmenting ride in the country This is never my favorite week of the year. But as long as I can remember, every Sept. 13, it has been my birthday. (Duh)! But I have never been a fan of holidays of any sort, particularly of the birthday variety. Besides mak- TRUTH... ing you a year older, it also STRANGER thrusts you unwillingly into THAN the spotlight. And for those FICTION of you who really know me, BY DAVE you know that I would much PEARCE rather be the one to shine the spotlight on someone else than to have it shine on me. But for those who took the time to wish me ‘Happy Birthday’ in one way or another, I appreciate the thought. Last year was a weird birthday for me. I’m sure there’s a fancy name for it but I turned 56. Ironically, I was also born in 1956. So with Friday, Sept. 13 (ironic, huh), my year of being the same age as the year I was born went into the history books. Sometimes we have to look at ourselves in the mirror and size ourselves up. When I did it this weekend, I realized that I am, indeed, a unique individual. As much as I enjoy being in the public and spending time with and around

people, I equally enjoy time by myself. A lot of things have happened in my life this week. I lived through flashbacks of Sept. 11 and all that brought with it. I also learned of the death of yet another high school classmate, this one to cancer. I watched some tennis matches, reliving a time when I was younger and enjoyed playing competitive tennis at a relatively high level. Lately, stress has become a more prevalent part of my life. Although physically I feel pretty well most of the time, I endured a physical appointment with my friend Dr. Matthew Lee early in the week. And even though I got reasonably good news, as I drove the fields of rural Posey County on Sunday afternoon, I realized that, like the crops, my leaves are beginning to turn and even a good rain won’t put the green back into my leaves. A typical Sunday morning at our house involves getting up and getting ready for church. Then we rush out the door and head to church. Typically, there are after-church plans and the evening entails writing or finishing the stories

Guest Column State Rep. Wendy McNamara The rising cost/value of an Education: Part 1 of 2 With fall starting, many students are heading off to college to continue or even start their education. With the cost of higher education rising every year, many people are questioning the price of a four-year degree in regards to the return on investment. However it is becoming more apparent in today’s competitive world that a degree beyond high school is becoming a necessity. Unfortunately, we are graduating more college students with debt rather than with a job – and that is something that we must work to change. There are pros and cons of a bachelor degree and an Associate’s degree. Selecting which degree to earn depends on a person’s education and career goals. The average weekly income for a bachelor degree graduate in 2012 was $1,066 (Bureau of Labor Statistics). A bachelor degree may also offer more opportunities for obtaining promotions. The cost of obtaining this degree is the major drawback which is averaging $25,588 per aca-

demic year for public fouryear schools and $62,644 for private four-year schools in 2010 (U.S. Department of Education Statistics). These prices lead to large loan debt which can place newly graduates in financial hardship while searching for a job. One of the major reasons many people choose an associate degree is the cost. The average cost of a public two-year was $2,527 per academic year in 2010 (U.S. Department of Education Statistics). Other pros for an associate degree include smaller class sizes compared to four year institutions and the ability to enter the work force sooner with an associate’s degree. This is very beneficial for adults earning degrees. Draw backs for earning an associate’s degree are fewer options for advancement offered by employers later on. Whatever the degree you choose, there are plenty of institutions to pick from in our area. Ivy Tech-Evansville is an accredited two-year college, while the University of

Evansville is a private institution. We also have the University of Sothern Indiana which is one of the most economical choices for college in our state. College may not be for everyone, but having a fulfilling high quality job is something that everyone strives for. Next week I will discuss what we were able to accomplish this past legislative session to address the skills gap – or the opportunity gap. While the cost of an education may be rising, the value is also rising. Educated workers are a valuable resource in any workforce and play a key role in the success of a company.

that have to be done to put the weekly Posey County News together. But this week was different. My wife gave me permission to buy an older (yet beautiful) convertible. I brought it home to Posey County on Saturday evening. Once parked, it was refreshing to bump into hundreds of old friends in the Mount Vernon area and try to catch up just a little. This year’s River Days was by far the biggest and best yet. The weather was perfect and the new riverfront provided the perfect setting for the booths. Following the River Days parade, we went to New Harmony to get the book work done at the newspaper office. We headed home where we both could get a reprieve for a couple of hours, from the things that keep us going. My wife is generally the one to rise early on Sunday. She gets up and gets ready and makes sure I get it in gear and get to church. But this Sunday morning, when I turned over and looked at the clock, it read 9:25. I knew we would not be going to church on this Sunday. So I got up and walked to my little office on the back of the house. My wife has a flower garden with a bricked patio that she takes a lot of time and pride in. Unfortunately, I don’t usually have much time to spend in it. But on this Sunday morning, I couldn’t help but spend a few minutes in my own way of worship for the things I usually take for granted. It was a good morning. Like usual, there were plans for the afternoon. Connie had made plans to ride to Illinois with her Aunt Ruthie and Uncle Marvie to see her cousin and their family. There’s a new baby in the family. So I took this opportunity to enjoy some ‘me’ time. Music is my favorite (and sometimes only) method of relaxation. So I put the top down and put some Kenny Chesney, some Rascal Flatts, some Hoppers, and some 1980s music

in the CD player and headed for the cornfields of Posey County. It could not have been a more perfect day for it. The selections of music spoke to different decades of my life. Somehow I was able to relive many of my memories through the words of the songs. I grew up singing and listening to gospel music so The Hoppers music spoke to me then and still speaks to me now. The Kenny Chesney CD that I picked spoke to me about a time when I was in high school and college, concluding with ‘The Old Blue Chair.’ The 1980s music spoke to me of the time when I was learning to make my way in the real world through trial and error and of the time, back in 1989, that Connie and I were married. Then Rascal Flatts was a compilation of favorites that I have lived through in the past 15 years or so, including songs I have shared during joy rides with friends in the car business and the newspaper business. When I sat down and began to write this evening, I was jolted back to the present. It brought me back to the reality that I have a lot of work to finish on this week’s paper. It brought me back to the reality that my plate remains full. It made me realize how much I depend on my computer. Then suddenly I realized the correlation. Sometimes, your hard drive (brain) just needs to be decluttered. Sometimes a program even needs to be run to defragment the information that remains there. And as long as you don’t damage the hardware or the operating system, it’s good to do routine maintenance on the hard drive once in awhile. As a matter of fact, it is a necessity. It makes your software run more quickly, efficiently, and smoothly. I realized that all I needed to do was to hit the restart button and a reboot would have me off and running for another week.

Chapter 6 - Never give the Chief an even break Titanic Thompson said, “Let’s adjourn to the poker room on the second floor where we can have some privacy. Our GAVEL game ended GAMUT at four this morning after BY JUDGE Hubert and JIM REDWINE I busted six drunk oil men and split the spoils. Raven contributed greatly just by occasionally touching a shoulder of someone with a good hand. Raven needs to tell you about Chief Lookout’s interests, strengths and weaknesses so you can distract him during the Hands Game. Julia is already in your camp and will not interfere, although she must play her cards close to her chest. The Chief is nobody’s fool and if he suspects a set-up all bets are off. First, Cokes and I will try to coach you in a kind of Statue of Liberty Play. Misdirection is the key.” The four conspirators left the breakfast table and crossed the lobby to the elevator where the colored operator used a key to let them off on the private second floor. When Frank stepped off the elevator he saw a lavishly decorated hallway leading to a large oak door with a brass viewing port. Thomas opened the door with a key and flipped a light switch just inside the room. A kaleidoscope of sparkling crystals refracted the light from a huge chandelier hanging over an octagonal table in the center of the room. There was green felt covering all but the mahogany chip and cup holders in front of each of the eight positions. Each position had a

cushioned armchair. Two of the chairs had brass plates in the center of the front side of the chair backs. These chairs were directly across from one another. Both plates were engraved. One said ‘Mr. Thomas’ and the other said ‘Mr. Cokes.’ “Frank, the start of the Hands Game is played with one buckeye for each player. First, stakes are agreed upon, then, for the preliminary stage, both players take a buckeye and put both of their hands behind their backs. On the simultaneous count of one, two, three both players bring both of their hands in front of them with the palms down. Of course, the buckeye will be in one of each player’s hands. The players guess which hand their opponent’s buckeye is in by simultaneously saying their guesses. The first player to get two-in-a-row correct gets to choose whether he will be the one who holds the buckeye or the one who guesses which hand it is in when the actual game starts. You should let Chief Lookout guess right the first two times and you should try to guess wrong. Your first objective is to encourage the Chief to believe he can tell which hand your buckeye is in. We want you to be in control of the buckeye. Hubert, what is your plan for achieving this outcome?” “Coach, let’s talk about how you get Lookout to win the first part so he is encouraged to have you be the one who holds the buckeye. Expert Hands players know

beginners normally avert their eyes from the hand the buckeye is in. Do not be too obvious, but in addition to manipulating the buckeyes as you should, try to get the Chief to believe you are giving away your position. If you can get him to believe he has figured you out, he will want to be the one who chooses and he will want you to be the one who holds the buckeye. “Normally you would use two buckeyes. For hundreds, maybe thousands of years, Indians have dealt with buckeye manipulators just as card sharks do cards. For example, when Ti and I play poker each time Ti draws an ace he uses the roughed underside edge of his index finger ring to mark a corner. Then we never stay in a hand unless we are sure no one else has an ace, except when we are just lucky enough to draw something very strong. This is usually just enough of an edge to change the odds. During several hours of poker this slight advantage is all Ti and I need when coupled with our brother-in-lawing and secret signals. “Our plan will work better if you can get the Chief to agree to use small glass beads instead of buckeyes. Manipulation of these beads will be much easier than buckeyes. “But how do you manipulate the beads or buckeyes? Ti and I have devised a system that calls for cool nerves and distraction. Look at this device we concocted from crimp cut Camel tobacco bags. We will pin a bag just inside the cuff of each of your shirt sleeves. The Chief may demand you

take your coat off. You must wear a dark shirt. You will notice we have dyed both bags using black ink. Raven found some strong thin black thread that we used to replace the draw strings of the bags. The thread goes around the little finger of each hand. I will loan you rings for your fingers that will hide the thread. “Come on, Frank. Don’t look so scared. What’s the worst that will happen? If you don’t pull this off, you will be just where you were before. That is, the Chief won’t support your plan. Oh, there is that matter of owing us a thousand, but let’s take one thing at a time. “Here’s how it works. Each time you will take a bead or buckeye from both of your two hip pockets so you have one in each hand when you bring them in front. You will start with several beads or buckeyes in each back pocket. Wear extra large pants. Do not wear Levis or any other coarse material. Buy a pair made from some slick, stretchy material like gabardine. You want the back pocket openings real wide. Now we will go to how you will win the actual game. “If the Chief indicates your left hand, you will palm the bead, hopefully, or buckeye into the bag and show him your right which will have a bead in it. During this entire encounter you must distract him with conversation, hand and body motions and especially eye movement. If you can get him talking, that is your best cover. You will have to show both hands, but do not extend either pinky. Practice curling them under

while extending your other fingers. “Normally, the Hands Game is played best two out of three. Don’t take chances. The less time you play, the better chance he won’t catch you. Try to win the first two. “Of course, he may choose to have you guess while he holds the buckeye. Should that happen, you can be assured he won’t cheat but he will most certainly try to outsmart you. We will practice techniques you can use for this too. For example, even the best Hands or poker players cannot control their pupils or their nostrils when excited. You can act like you’re going to pick one hand then back away while watching the Chief’s face. If his pupils grow larger or his nostrils flare,

pick the other hand. You have three tries. If the hand you choose doesn’t contain the bead, you know what to look for the next two times. If it does, you only have to repeat your tactic to win. Ti, anything else?” “Frank, we will practice in this room all day today and every day the rest of this week if you want. Cokes and I must run our game at night. Perhaps you can call Chief Lookout to cancel for tonight’s dinner – use a football excuse such as needing to scout out the Pawhuska High School stadium and then set up an appointment in a few days. Meantime, Raven can give you inside information on Chief Lookout. Would it be okay with you to spend the next few early evenings with Raven? That’s kind of you, Frank.”

Letters to the Editor Middle East Equilibrium To foster world stability, it is in the best interest of the U.S. to promote equilibrium in the Middle East. Israel should be kept strong because it is a Western oriented ally and buffer country in the region. Iraq was a buffer against Iran. With the death of Hussein and the takeover by the Shiites, the balance of power has shifted to Shiite Iraq, Iran, Syria, and Hezbollah in Lebanon. The Sunni majority in Syria, supported by Sunni Saudi Arabia and the Emirates, are fighting President Assad of Syria, a Shiite. We should support the Sunnis in Syria with some arms and hope they can hold their own and keep Assad off balance. Since the Syrian rebels have al Qaeda elements among them, we do not want to strengthen them, nor weaken Assad, too much. Egypt is a dubious friend of the U.S. The Sunni Muslim Brotherhood continues to cast a shadow on the country. We should back the Egyptian military as a counter-weight to the Islamists in Egypt. Sectarianism in the Middle East prevails over national identity, and conflicts will be fought due to sectarian and religious differences. We have to remember who our potential enemies are in the world. Donald A. Moskowitz Londonderry, NH

Wildcats gain first win against Big Eight’s Vincennes

Wildcat sophomore Gabe Adams avoids defenders for extra yardage in Friday night’s game against Vincennes Lincoln. Photo by Steven Kochersperger By Steven Kochersperger Friday the thirteenth can be a scary day and it was nothing but a nightmare for the Vincennes Lincoln Alices as they came into Mount Vernon and lost big. The Wildcats, looking to turn their season around, came into Friday’s came looking to show that hard work and perseverance really does pay off and when the final horn sounded the Wildcats found themselves as victors 35-14. Last week the Wildcats had nothing go right for them and Mount Vernon coach Paul Maier

promised the team would come prepared this week. It didn’t take long to see that Maier’s words were right on as the Wildcats looked ready to play and willing to take shots all game long. “We pushed these guys hard this week,” Maier said. “They responded very well. I think we saw a very young team grow up today. We did a lot of things well. Defensively we couldn’t be happier and there are a lot of guys on this team who did something great tonight. I’m very happy with the team and they have

worked hard to get to this point so they deserve the win.” The first quarter of play featured two defenses who looked hungry and eager to stop the opposing offense. The Alices took the opening kickoff and eventually fumbled the ball away to the Wildcats. The Wildcats were not able to take that turnover and do anything with it as they missed an opening quarter field goal attempt to leave the score 0-0 at the end of the quarter. It was the Alices who struck first offensively though, scoring on a 57 yard touchdown run by Lincoln junior Brandt Nowaskie with 9:03 left on the clock. Vincennes missed the extra point and went ahead 6-0 in the second quarter. Mount Vernon struggled early in the game as they fumbled the kickoff after the Alice touchdown giving the ball back to the visitors. But the Wildcat defense came up big yet again stopping the Vincennes offense allowing the Mount Vernon offense to take over on the two yard line. Mount Vernon would answer the call to go 98 yards and they did just that. Wildcat quarterback Riley Snodgrass threw a bullet to junior tight end Hunter Brooks 87 yards for the Wildcats first points of the game. After kicker Micheal Cannato’s extra point the Cats went ahead for the first time 7-6 with 5:07 left until halftime. Mount Vernon took the 7-6 lead into the locker room feeling good about where they were especially with the defense playing at the level they were. Mount Vernon took the second half kickoff looking to convert on the scoreboard and build their lead. That is exactly what they were able to do as Riley Snodgrass went for the touchdown two yards out on a quarterback keeper. The Cats found themselves ahead 14-6 with

momentum squarely on their side. Vincennes Lincoln answered the Wildcat touchdown with a score of their own as Alice running back Tyjuan Hawkins scored from five yards out. Hawkins used his impressive speed to run the two point conversion in to tie the game at 14-14 in the third quarter. That is when the Mount Vernon offense came alive and took over the game. Behind some great offensive line play the Wildcats would score three more rushing touchdowns to put the Alices away. Wildcat running back Austin Guthrie scored with two minutes left in the third quarter on a five yard scamper to put Mount Vernon ahead 21-14 while sophomore teammate Gabe Adams ran one in from three yards out early in the fourth to build Mount Vernon’s lead to 28-14. Guthrie would score again with 3:56 left in the game on a one yard run up the middle to get Mount Vernon their first win of the season at 35-14. And while the defense got a lot of praise from coach Maier after the game, so did the offensive line. “That’s the best game our offensive line played in a long time,” coach Maier said. “They played very physical football and paved the way for our runners to have a great game.” Quarterback Riley Snodgrass led the way in rushing Friday night running for 120 yards on 18 carries in the ball game. The Wildcats now have the momentum and will take the winning ways to Washington this week to take on the Hatchets. The Cats find themselves with an overall record of 1-3 and are now 1-1 in the Big Eight Conference. Washington is 0-4 after their loss this week at North Daviess.

Determined Vikings take out Memorial By Dave Pearce North Posey Viking volleyball coach Natalie Barnard said that if there was one word that would describe her Viking team this year, it would be “exciting.” The Memorial Tigers and the few Viking fans that stuck around Thursday evening learned just how exciting the Vikings can be. The Lady Vikings fell behind 8-1 in both the first and second games as Memorial appeared to have just too much size for the Vikings. As a matter of fact, if you added all the points together that the Vikings scored in the first and second games against the Tigers, they would barely have enough to reach 25. As a matter of fact, after dropping the first game 25-12, the Lady Vikings committed four service errors in the second contest and fell behind two sets, 25-13 and 25-12. “I think we had three service errors back-to-back-toback there in the second game,” Barnard said. “In the games you are close, you cannot have those service errors. It would be different if those errors were coming because you were trying for really powerful attempts. But we were hitting and serving scared.” That’s when most of the North Posey student section headed for the gates. But that’s also when the Lady Vikings decided they could play with the very tall and talented Tigers. “We didn’t score more than 13 points either one of the first two games and when you do that, you are scared to death as a coach,” Barnard said with a big smile, following the comeback. “The girls could easily have given up and just said ‘hey, we’re clearly not going to beat this team.’ But that’s when it becomes about heart and passion. When everyone goes out there and ‘steps up,’ you North Posey’s Hannah Harness hits between the two Memorial are never out of it. They started hitting away.” The side differential was astounding for the Vikings. blockers on their way to a come-from-behind victory over Memorial Memorial often had two or three players on the court over on Thursday evening at North Posey.

six feet tall. The tallest Viking is around 5-foot-8. From the outset, it appeared to be a David versus Goliath situation and we all know how that came out. This match-up came out the same way. “At the beginning, we were intimidated by their size and how hard they were hitting the ball,” Barnard said of the match. “But then we realized we could block them to offset that size. That’s when we started to figure it out.” The teams played even in the third set, with the score tied at nearly every other point, 11-all, 14-all, 15-all, and another service error tied it again at 16-all. But the Lady Vikings decided if they were going to win this match, they were going to have to earn it. And that’s just what they did. They led by scores of 21-17 and 23-18 before settling for the third-set win at 25-23 win on the strength of Ashley Schorr spikes on the twenty-fourth and twenty-fifth points. “We did a good job of picking them apart defensively and we found the open spots,” Barnard said. “We were able to move their big blockers around so they couldn’t stay in front of us. And we did a great job of covering. When you have a big team like that against you, you have to do a great job of covering.” And cover they did. Memorial took and early lead in the fourth game before a Hannah Harness spike pulled the Vikings even at 2-all. The Tigers took a 4-2 lead only to have the Vikings come back to take a 5-4 lead. The Vikings continued to pick up everything that was hit to their side of the net and an Eli Schapker block gave the Vikings their largest lead of the night at 14-7 in the fourth game. But Memorial was not finished either. The Tigers

Mount Vernon edges Vikings in Junior High action The Mount Vernon Junior High girls’ volleyball seventh and eighth grade teams each claimed narrow wins over North Posey in action this week. In seventh grade action, Mount Vernon claimed wins of 25-23, and 25-24 as North Posey’s Addison Elpers had seven aces. Elpers also led the team with two kills while Elise O’Risky had two assists. Elpers also had a dig. In eighth grade action, the match was just about as close as it could possibly be as Mount Vernon took the first set 25-10 only to have North Posey battle back and claim the second, 25-19. In the third and deciding game, which went to only 15 points, Mount Vernon closed out the match, winning 15-10. For North Posey, Haleigh Shell had four aces while Annamarie Cardin had two kills. Shell also had two assists while Hannah Will had a pair of digs.

Drill on the Hill in the Rietz Bowl was the first stop in the opening of marching season for both Posey County high schools. Mount Vernon and North Posey were pitted against each other in Class A along with Evansville Central and Evansville Bosse. The Wildcats took home the first place trophy. The Vikings followed in second place. Central took third place and Bosse fourth. Next, the Vikings made their way to the north side of Evansville for the Central Invitational. North Posey was one of six bands in Class A. The performance of their show, “Dark Night of the Soul,” earned them a first place trophy. Coming in second place was Pike Central and Princeton took third. North Posey will host their Field of Dreams Invitational Saturday, Sept. 21. The competition will begin at 5 p.m. at the high school. Fourteen bands are expected to participate. The Vikings will perform in exhibition.

North Posey Hall of Fame induction is Sept. 27 By Steve Kochersperger Homecoming will have an entirely new meaning for North Posey High School graduates on Friday evening, Sept. 17. Not only will the Vikings be hosting Forest Park in their homecoming game, but an induction dinner and ceremony will precede the evening’s festivities at North Posey. The inaugural class will be inducted into the Posey County Newssponsored Viking Athletic Hall of Fame following a dinner in the high school cafeteria. “The nominations have been submitted and considered,” Posey County News owner/publisher Dave Pearce said this week. “We are ready to proceed with the inaugural class. I am extremely proud to be able to be a part of it.” Tickets are $15 each and may be purchased by calling the Posey County News office at

812-682-3950. Tickets will also be available at Friday night’s football game. There will be a single team and three individuals in the inaugural induction class. “While I may have moved forward with the idea, there have been several others over the years who have had the idea of starting a Hall of Fame for North Posey athletes,” said Pearce. “I think I came along at just the right time. And with incredible backing from local school and athletic officials, we are finally going to get this done.” Attendance at the induction ceremonies and community involvement is critical to the success of any such program. “It takes a lot of time and effort to pull everything together when everyone’s lives are so busy, especially my own,” Pearce said. “But

everyone involved has been incredible. There have been times when I have had to delay meetings or reschedule things and everyone has been understanding.” North Posey School Administration from the superintendent to the coaches, teachers, and members of the community have been supportive of the Hall. As it currently stands, a dinner will be served at 5:30 p.m. at the high school cafeteria. The meal will consist of your choice of fried chicken or roast beef from the Red Wagon. A guest speak will share a few words before the first plaques will be presented to the inductees and a copy to school officials for permanent placement in the Hall. “It only makes sense to hold this on the weekend of homecoming and the Poseyville

Autumnfest,” Pearce said. “Homecoming brings in a good crowd and the inductees will be recognized at half-time. Homecoming festivities are conducted prior to the game.” So why an athletic Hall of Fame? “North Posey High School came into existence in 1969 and there have been many gifted athletes and lots of memories created in those years,” Pearce said in initially presenting the proposal. “The Posey County News considers it a pleasure to help recognize some of the people who have made the athletic programs what they are at North Posey.” “First things first…We can’t thank Dave and Connie enough for being willing to be the permanent sponsor of the NPHS Athletic Hall

Brandenstein credits team with new records, team wins pair By Dave Pearce The North Posey Vikings won two of three boys’ soccer matches this week and in the process, ran their overall record to 7-3. But perhaps more impressive was the feat that was set by Viking senior Jace Brandenstein. He finished with 12 goals on the week, setting school records for the most goals in a game (6) and most goals in a season (21) with several matches left to be played. Brandenstein said he wanted to share any accolades that came his way with his teammates and his long-time buddy Reed Heathcotte. Heathcotte went down with a serious soccer-ending injury during a loss last Saturday at Forest Park. He underwent successful surgery this week but is definitely finished with his high school soccer career. “What I am seeing here is a very mature Jace Brandenstein,” North Posey Coach Andy Hines said. “He’s grateful to his teammates and in return, they are wanting him to score and they gave him every opportunity this week.” During a 6-1 win over Boonville on Tuesday evening, Brandenstein scored five goals to tie the ‘most goals in a game’ record held by last year’s Jace, Jace Gentil. Hines said Brandenstein’s recordNorth Posey Viking Janis Heipmann makes his way through a defender during a recent game. The center tying performance at Boonville held some mysterious oddities as his fifth midfielder has become a threat to score or to pass. Photo goal was scored with five minutes reby Dave Pearce maining in the game. Ironically, Heath-

cotte’s uniform number was five. Janis Heipmann scored the other goal. Then on Thursday, the Vikings were dominant in a win over Pike Central as members of the team wanted to be part of Viking history. “We played very poor in the first half but we still were able to be ahead 3-0 at the half,” Hines said. “We consider ourselves to be a good team and we were up but we did not have a dominating performance. We just did not play at the level I felt like we should be playing when we are playing teams like Pike Central. We just weren’t clicking.” “You have to give Jace credit because he is finishing great goals,” Hines said. “But his teammates are helping set him up. They were all wanting him to break the record and they all got him the ball every chance they could get. Jace has two very good players who have been able to get him the ball in good position.” Another thing going for Brandenstein is his ‘great speed,’ according to his coach. “We have two strikers this year who can play the top. They are both capable of scoring or assisting them.” On Saturday, the winning magic came up just short at Washington Catholic as the Vikings fell behind 2-0 early on before managing to tie the game at 2-all in the second half. But in the end, Catholic pulled out a 4-2 win. “I don’t want to make excuses but

their field was just not very good at all,” Hines said of the facility in Washington. “It is just not a fun place to play.” But Hines said his team created multiple opportunities in Washington, finding themselves in one-on-one situations throughout the contest but simply they were unable to capitalize. “They have a really, really good player who is a Division I player,” Hines said. “But more than that, we struggled in the first half with offsides and it seemed like if we were onsides, we just missed.” Brandenstein scored his twelfth goal of the week in the contest. “Their best player got a goal off the post in the second half and then we had a little mental lapse and suddenly they had another one,” Hines said. “We were still creating opportunities, but it was just tough conditions to play. We had one waved off because of an offsides call.” Brandenstein and Janis Heipmann scored the goals for the Vikings. “You wouldn’t even have known Jace broke the record on Saturday because his team lost a game that was pretty important to him,” Hines said of Brandenstein. “Reed was at the game. And even though he got the record, it wasn’t a celebration.” The Vikings will be back in action hosting Day School on Tuesday before traveling to Central on Wednesday.

Wildcats thump Vikings, Boonville in week of contradictions

By Steve Kochersperger The Mount Vernon Wildcat volleyball team is slowly putting the pieces together and the Lady Cats are looking strong. The Wildcats won a pair of important games beating North Posey and Boonville at home this week before struggling in the Mount Vernon invitational this week. Against North Posey the Wildcats seemed focused and strong and did not let North Posey take control and won because of it 25-11, 25-22, 25-21. That consistency is something Mount Vernon coach Michelle Northrop has been looking for and is happy she saw it Tuesday night against the Vikings. “This is the first time all season we are able to win all three sets to get a win,” Northrop said after the contest. “I am very proud of our girls for being able to push through and get the win over a team like North Posey. I’m very happy with the team right now.” Mount Vernon took the opening game with the Vikings on Tuesday and gained control right away. The Wildcats went ahead big and never looked back beating North Posey handily in the opening game 25-11. The second set would not be as easy for the Wildcats though. Mount Vernon opened the second set scoring the first five points but North Posey would tighten the game up at 10-9 and three points later tie the set up at 11-11. Mount Vernon answered the Viking run with a run of their own scoring the next four points to go ahead 15-11. North Posey answered the Wildcats by getting the next five points themselves to go ahead 16-15 over Mount Vernon. The set went back and fourth from there and with the score tied up at 18-18 Mount Vernon took control scoring seven of the next

eleven points to win the set 25-22. The Vikings would keep fighting throughout the third set but it would not be enough as the Mount Vernon Wildcats would prove to be too much for North Posey to handle Tuesday night. The Cats won the third set 25-21 to gain not only a victory over a cross county rival but also their seventh win of the season. The Wildcats were led by Ellen Denning who had 30 assists and 17 digs against the Vikings. Livia Hopper had 11 kills to lead the way and freshman Drew McNamara led all players with two blocks in the contest. The Wildcats hosted Big Eight conference rival Boonville Pioneers on Thursday night and were able to walk away with an all important eighth win of the season. All conference games are vitally important to the Wildcats and the win Thursday helped them improve their conference record as well. The Cats beat Boonville 25-19, 25-16, 22-25, 25-22. Denning once again led the Wildcats with 38 assists and McNamara with two blocks against the Pioneers. Erica Winiger had three aces in the contest and Shelby Ritzert put down 16 kills Thursday night. Mount Vernon took their 8-4 overall record into the Mount Vernon invitational looking to beat any and all opponents that were in their way. Mount Vernon looked like they were in a battle as they lost to Memorial, North Posey, and Barr Reeve on Saturday. Barr Reeve ended up winning the invitational and looks to have a strong volleyball team yet again. The Wildcats will be back in action this week as they travel to Princeton Thursday evening. Game time for the all important conference match-up is 6 p.m.

Viking tennis team takes 1 of 3 as No. 1 doubles still perfect By Dave Pearce The North Posey Vikings did not have the kind of week that North Posey Coach Brandon Barrett would like to have had. The team won a tight match against Tecumseh, lost a tight match to Evansville North, then finished third behind Gibson Southern and Tecumseh in the Gibson Southern Invitational on Saturday. But one thing has been constant, not only this week but all season long. The North Posey No. 1 doubles team of Griffin Motz and Drake Davenport has remained unbeaten through 15 matches with perhaps their best win coming this week over District-ranked North’s doubles team. “I think we played as well as we have ever played in that match,” Motz said following the match. And his coach did not disagree. “It was a very exciting match,” Barrett said. “It was probably the best match I have seen since I have been coaching. They were really going at each other. They were hitting the ball really had and it was a back-andforth match.” But in the end, the No. 1 doubles duo remained undefeated heading into action this week. But the rest of the team was not as fortunate as a new line-up did not get the Vikings the points they had hoped. “It was a little disappointing to get third place at the Gibson Southern Invitational,” Barrett said of his team’s one-point edge by the Braves, a team they had beaten head-tohead earlier in the week. “But overall, I think

I saw what I needed to see out of the new line-up. That’s probably the direction we are going to head. Gibson Southern is the team we are going to have to beat in our sectional and to do that, we are going to have to win both doubles matches and hope to get a win at one of the singles spots.” Barrett said, looking ahead to the sectional draw, “If we draw Tecumseh, we could have a match-up problem with them. They have three strong singles players. So it comes down to which team are you going to prepare for and I think we are going to go ahead and prepare for Gibson Southern.” But if Barrett is to win a sectional this year, it will have to be with the boys’ team. After winning back-to-back sectional titles with the girls’ team over the past two years, Barrett has resigned as head girls’ tennis coach to spend more time with his family. He had three children five and under. “Four years is enough for me,” Barrett said reluctantly. “I need to see more of them and let someone young take them over. I want to go out on top. One of my goals was to win one sectional for the school. We were able to get two.” But for the boys, Reed Gertiesen will finish the season playing number one singles in three out of the five remaining regular-season matches. He will attempt to become more familiar with his doubles partner at No. 2 doubles in the other matches and in practice. “Unforced errors killed Reed and Jacob on Saturday at Gibson Southern,” Barrett said.

“When the other team needed to make the shots, they made them and we just struggled. But it was only their third time to play together.” “You just have to do what you think will give your team their best chance to win depending on the team you are facing for the rest of the season,” Barrett said. “Mount Vernon is going to be a tough one for us. They are very solid at singles.” The match on Tuesday at Mount Vernon is the team’s only match this week.

Lady Vikings make the most of opportunities, defense in win By Dave Pearce The North Posey Lady Vikings had only one chance to get a win in soccer action this week. The Lady Vikings’ hosted Boonville on Tuesday and came away with a 1-0 win over the Pioneers from the Big Eight Conference. During action last week, Viking Coach Scott Butrum told his team that he didn’t necessarily care how many goals his team scores as long as there in a zero on the defensive side. His team must have taken his speech to heart as they held the Pioneers in check. “We dominated the first half but we didn’t capitalize on our opportunities,” Butrum said following the match. “We had a good performance defensively and Brooklyn only had two real saves. But one of those was a really good save there in the second half.” The Pioneers appeared destined to tie the game when Hamman jumped high into the air and got her hand on a Pioneer bullet and deflected it over the top of the goal to save the shutout. “Boonville had good speed,” Butrum said.

Maddie Koester got the team on the board in about the fifteenth minute of the first half and the defense made the early goal stand up. “About ten minutes in, we hadn’t even had a shot,” Butrum said of his team’s slow start. “But Kamryn Brandenstein played Maddie a through ball in the middle and she turned and beat the girl behind her and scored the goal. She’s a scoring machine up there for me right now.” Butrum said he had changed the positions of some of the girls on the team to help generate a little more offense. “I moved Kamryn from right forward to center midfield and I feel like that gave us a little better understanding of the formation we are running. I plan to keep trying to rotate her in there.” Butrum was also complimentary of the German exchange student Hannah Bauer, whose playing time has been limited because of commitments from the family where she is staying. “Hannah had many opportunities there on the left side tonight,” Butrum said. “But she

is only here for one season. If I can play her and she can help use, we are going to use her.” With the win, the Vikings moved to 6-3 on the season and were scheduled to play Harrison on Monday and Evansville Day School on Wednesday. “This week we are going to work on nothing but attacking,” Butrum said. “We have become complacent at times and it is very difficult to score when you are that way. Offensively, we are getting much stronger but we are not punching the ball through what I would consider the final third of the field.” July’s heat, which has come in September, probably played a role in the lethargic play of both teams in the early going. “We did not move well early and we had some opportunities in the second half,” Butrum said. “But we have to become more aggressive at going to the goal, getting over the top or getting through. But I give credit to Boonville for part of that.” Butrum said his team will have to be ready for the Evansville schools because they play a much more physical and aggressive style.

Hall of Fame, from Page B1 of Fame,” said North Posey School Board member Joe Neidig. “To have an independent community partner such as the Posey County News willing to do this is a true blessing for our entire community and will be for years to come. I envision that, over time, and done right this will bring people back to our great community and strengthen ties even more.” Plans for the North Posey Athletic Hall of Fame are as follows: The Posey County News will initiate and become permanent sponsor of the North Posey High School Athletic Hall of Fame. As an independent entity, the school corporation would be well-served to allow the newspaper to be exclusive sponsor of this program to maintain the integrity of such a Hall of Fame. The Posey County News will accept the financial responsibility of supplying plaques and pictures for each year’s nominees. Proceeds from ticket meals for the annual induction ceremony will cover the costs of the meal as

well as the plaques and other miscellaneous expenses associated with the banquet. The purpose of the North Posey High School Athletic Hall of Fame is to recognize and honor those North Posey High School athletes, coaches, administrators and supporters who excelled in their respective sports or coaching/ support roles and who helped to bring honor, recognition, distinction and excellence to North Posey High School by their conduct both on and off the field, or court, of competition. This recognition will help maintain the spirit, pride and sense of community as well as serving as a historical account of the great athletic traditions of North Posey High School. As an Athletic Hall of Fame, it will be open to all IHSAA sanctioned sports. Eligibility for Nomination: Athletes are eligible for nomination 10 years after their class’s graduation. They must be in good standing or in special circumstances as determined by the Board Members. Such athletes must have

competed in a North Posey High School and IHSAAsanctioned varsity sport and must have excelled in such sport. Among the accomplishments taken into account will be individual (all-District, allRegion, all-State) and team accomplishments, individual school or team records held, and impact on teams and the overall athletic program at North Posey High School during their era and accomplishments thereafter. Nomination is also open to coaches or administrators, who must have participated with distinction and/or made

significant contributions to athletics at North Posey High School, as evidenced, for example, by the success of their teams and the acknowledgment of their former studentathletes. Such coaches or administrators shall be eligible for nomination beginning five years after they have left North Posey High School for any reason, or in special circumstances as determined by the Board Members. Self nominations or anonymous nominations will not be considered. As determined by the Board Members, Contributors will

also be considered for nomination based upon their service and dedication to the athletic programs at North Posey High School. “We plan on this becoming an annual event, probably each year on homecoming night,” Pearce said. “I can only hope the North Posey family is as excited about this as I am. Those who have represented their school with class and have given back to the community deserve to be recognized for their efforts.” For further information, please call Pearce at 812-4594206.

Viking volleyball, from Page B1 scored three straight points before the Vikings took a 19-11 lead on strong overall play. With the lead in hand, a Harness service ace and spike put the game out of reach of the Tigers, forcing game five. Again, the Tigers looked dominant early, taking a 3-0 lead right out of the gate. But just as they had all evening, the Vikings fought back. Even after it appeared they had won a point to pull to within 2-3 and an inadvertent whistle forced a replay of the point, the Lady Vikings won it again. But after tying the game at 4-all, the Tigers would jump out to a 10-6 lead and it appeared, again, the Vikings were in trouble. But again it would be Ashley Schorr, who at times shared the floor with two of her younger sisters, who would provide the offense. A hard smash and a tip sandwiched a service ace and the Vikings were back to within 10-9. The Vikings tied the score at 10 and then took a 12-10 lead before a service error gave Memorial its 12th point. A Viking hitting error tied the final set at 13. On the ensuing point, a controversy erupted as the Tigers thought the Viking spike attempt had hit the net but the officials signaled a block. The Vikings went on to win the point and force a Memorial time out. Then, with the game on the line, the Vikings went to the senior Harness, whose left-handed wind up appeared to be going hard toward the floor. But she alertly took a little off the hit and dropped in into a spot the Tigers could not

return, giving the Vikings the exciting come-from-behind win. “I have a lot of leaders this year and it seems like we have a different leader nearly every game,” Barnard said of the spark. “We have a very dynamic team this year and it seems like all the upperclassmen have stepped up at one time or another.” Ashley Schorr led the team with 16 kills while Hannah Harness had nine. Kristen Schorr and Jordan Werry had eight kills apiece while Mackenzie Morrow, Eli Schapker, Marlee Sims, and Emma Werry each had a kill. Kristen and Ashley Schorr evenly split six service aces while Madison Feldhake, Harness, and Kendra Schorr each had one. Eli Schapker had 43 assists and 16 digs while Ashley Schorr had 24 digs and 20 for Emma Werry. Kendra Schorr had 13 digs and Feldhake had 12. On Saturday in the Mount Vernon Invitational, revenge was the biggest factor of the day as the Lady Vikings made up for a very poor performance on Tuesday evening at Mount Vernon and defeated the Wildcats in their own tournament. But Memorial had revenge on their minds as well, as they picked up the win over the Vikings in another close match between the schools. But it would be Barr Reeve who would come away with the trophy after defeating all three of the local teams in the tournament. The Vikings were scheduled to travel to Pike Central to resume conference action on Monday before hosting Reitz and South Spencer on Tuesday and Thursday, respectively.

But the coach chose rather to focus on the future rather than the past. MICHAEL CANNATO “We just have to put this one behind us and just keep working to get better,” Rynkiewich said of this week’s game. “Heritage Hills is 1-3 but they have played a very good schedule, with two of their losses coming to Mater Dei and Jasper. They have a very good running back. But they are spreading things out a little this year.”

The Viking skipper is optimistic going into the game against the Patriots, believing his team just might have the right combination to limit the Patriot offense. “I don’t think they are quite as fast as the last two teams we have played,” Rynkiewich said. Gametime Friday night at Memorial Field is 7 p.m.
