Area crop projections continue to look bleak Writer’s group rescheduled The nonfiction writers’ group meeting has been reset for Sunday, Sept. 30, 1:30 p.m. at the Alexandrian Public Library, in Mount Vernon.

Posey bands excel In week two of the Indiana high school marching season, North Posey High School was the first school to march in competition at the first invitational hosted by Evansville Harrison High School in the new Romaine Stadium. The Vikings, performing in Class A, took home a second place trophy. Second year Drum Major, Curtis Cleek, also, received his first caption award for Best Drum Major. After competing in Evansville, the Vikings headed back to Poseyville to host the twenty-first annual Field of Dreams invitational. There the Vikings performed in exhibition, not competition, for a score before the judges. The Mount Vernon band performed in Class AAA at North Posey. The Wildcats received a first place trophy. Other caption awards received by Mount Vernon were Best Auxiliary and Best Percussion.

Special to the News Corn and soybean yield projections decreased Wednesday, Sept. 12, 2012, as the nation’s Corn Belt continues to suffer through the worst drought since at least 1956. According to a U.S. Department of Agriculture Crop Production report, the nation’s corn crop could be just 10.7 billion bushels, down less than one percent from the Aug. 10 report and 13 percent from 2011. Those numbers represent the smallest corn crop since 2006. While the corn yield projections declined, Purdue Extension agri-

cultural economist Chris Hurt said they didn’t drop as much as expected compared with the August report. “The surprise was on the corn market. Corn yields were not dropped very much – about sixtenths of a bushel per acre,” Hurt said. “What we saw is that in the primary Midwest, especially Illinois, Iowa and Nebraska, the yields all came down some. But in the southern tier of states, we actually saw an increase in yields, so we kind of had an offset.” Soybean production was fore-

cast at 2.63 billion bushels, down 2 percent since August and 14 percent from 2011. The projections are slightly less than what Hurt said markets anticipated. Indiana’s corn and soybean yield projections held steady from August to September. The USDA anticipated 605 million bushels of corn, down 28 percent from 2011. Indiana soybeans were projected at 184.6 million bushels, down 22 percent from 2011. Wednesday corn markets were bearish on the heels of the release of the USDA report, but soybean

futures prices jumped. Cash corn prices for new crop ranged from $7.75 to $8 per bushel, while new crop-cash soybean prices averaged between $17 and $17.50 in Indiana. Hurt said the report can give corn and soybean growers some insight for marketing the crops. “As we think about marketing, there certainly are some differences between corn and soybeans,” he said. “For corn, current bids into the storage season are relatively flat going across the fall and into the

Work continues on Poseyville Town Hall By Valerie Werkmeister The September 12, Poseyville Town Council meeting was short and sweet as board member Steve Ahrens was unable to attend the meeting. However, Ron Fallowfield and Bruce Baker were present and quorum was met in order to continue with the meeting. Julie Mayo of the Poseyville Utility office announced a new gas tracker for August, September and October consumption months would create a 10 percent decrease on utility bills in September, October and November. The board approved the new gas tracker rate of 0.08193/ccf. The council approved a request

by Chris Neaveill, Poseyville Volunteer Fire Department Chief to add a new member. Chris Klostermann was recently voted in by the fire department membership. The council also approved ordinance 2012-09-12-01 to adopt the budget. Poseyville advertised $537,006 for their overall budget estimate. Work will soon continue on the new town hall that was begun during the summer. Baker stated he had recently spoken to ECI Construction in regards to the project. They will resume work this week and intend to stay at the job site until the project is completed. Approval of ordinance 2012-08-

15-01 was tabled until Attorney William H. Bender completes his review of the Fair Housing Ordinance. The ordinance is already mandated by federal law and council members questioned the need for their approval. A fall town-wide yard sale will be held on October 6. Anyone who would like to have a garage sale location included on a map must have the information to Janet Staley by September 21. Staley can be contacted at 874-3168. The next meeting will be held on Wednesday, October 10, at 4:30 p.m. in the Poseyville Community Center.

By Valerie Werkmeister Members of the Posey County Council met September 11, to approve a number of routine matters. Posey County Prosecutor Travis Clowers appeared before the council to request approval to transfer $1,440 his office had received as a result of plea agreement due to illegal drug charges. The funds were recovered during the execution of a search warrant. Clowers was also given authorization to spend $2,500 to cover expenses required to pay for experts who testified in court. Probation officer Rodney Fetcher requested an additional $35,000 appropriation to pay for pauper attorney fees. He stated the fees were incurred during the defense of a person recently convicted of murder. The attorney’s fee was approximately $20,000. He added that he anticipates he will need an additional $10,000-$15,000 and will return next month for this request. The council approved his request. Council members also approved a request from Larry Thompson for an additional $70,000 for Emergency Medical Services. Thompson admitted this was largely due to overtime pay while some of his employees were on medical leave or maternity leave. He also requested an additional appropriation of $40,000 from county general to part-time pay. “A large portion of this overtime is due to the fourth ambulance in Posey County. The public needs to

Mount Vernon Saturday Night Author Unknown

Chosen by Pam Robinson

BAKED COD WITH RITZ CRACKER TOPPING

Long ago in the fifties on Saturday night, Weather permitting, they’d celebrate right, Town folk and others from many miles away Gathered on Main Street at the end of the day. The stores and barber shops stayed open till nine, That suited all of the residents fine, Pay day for workers was on Saturday too, Most everyone would have some trading to do. In front of the court square the old people sat, With friends and neighbors they had a good chat, Hundreds of people were seen milling around, Acquaintances and kinfolk here could be found. The theater was chock full of kiddies and men, Tom Nix was riding old Tony back then, And Dagger’s place, there stood a big crowd, With all kinds of persons talkin’ real loud.

INGREDIENTS • 2 pounds skinless cod fillets • Salt • 1 sleeve of Ritz crackers (about 34 crackers) • 5 Tbsp unsalted butter • Lemon and parsley for garnish (optional) DIRECTIONS 1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease a small baking pan or casserole pan with butter or a little oil. Rinse off the fish fillets with cold water, pat dry. Use long nose pliers to remove any pin bones from the fillets. If you want, cut the fillets into large serving pieces. Place the fillets at the bottom of the pan, sprinkle with salt. 2. Melt the butter. Crush the Ritz crackers over a bowl; they should look like coarse breadcrumbs. Mix the melted butter with the breadcrumbs. Pack the crumb mixture over the top and sides of the fish fillets. 3. Place in the oven and bake for 20 minutes, or until the fish flakes easily. (Thin fillets may take less time, very thick fillets may take longer.) Yield: Serves 4-6

Children were so happy with nickles or dimes, Some lucky ones had a quarter sometimes, Candy bars, hot dogs, hamburgers with pickle-Each could be bought for only a nickle. Gentils and Schmucks were serving fine food, “Pop” Bennett was busy selling popcorn so good, The Palace soda shop was located quite handy For young people eagerly buying their candy. Model, Rosenbaums and Stinsons were then Supply dry goods for women and men, Both Gronemeiers and Schends had hardware and plugs, Wheaton, Boyer, Rothrock and Stuffles sold drugs. Now there was some drinkin’ and often a fight To spoil the good fun of the special night. Then sometimes a poor lad, sorry to say, Would wake up in jail--the devil to pay. Yes, those Saturday nights were something to see, Forever they will live in our memory. While things were not perfect back then, it is true In those days of the 1950’s we learned to make do.

Debra S. Hargett Debra S. (Hawkins) Hargett, age 53, of Mount Vernon, Ind., died Friday morning September 14, 2012, at Deaconess Hospital. She was born May 6, 1959, the daughter of Carl and Annie E.

Workshop offered in New Harmony Oct. 8 For a number of years, we have seen the art and craft of traditional and primitive rug hooking make a resurgence. What was once a practical way to recycle wool scraps and other fibers, has taken an artistic, creative direction. Like quilting, rug hooking can give new life to sentimental scraps of clothing and serve a sensible function. It can offer an opportunity to utilize brilliant hand-dyed fabrics. It also provides a network of friends who have diverse talents and interests. From the design of a pattern, and the arrangement of color and texture, to the

quiet and simple process of pulling strips of fabric through a backing of burlap or linen...it is no surprise that the popularity of hooking rugs or mats is growing as never before. A one day workshop is being offered in New Harmony at the spacious and accommodating Macleod Barn Abbey on October 8 for all skill, [artistic] , and experience levels. More information can be found on the New Harmony events calendar, www.newharmony.biz. You can also email teachers, Rita Hicks Davis - ritadvs@ gmail.com, or Phyllis Lindsey - plindseyturtle@gmail. com.

Historic New Harmony By Missy Parkinson The grand re-opening of Community House No. 2 in New Harmony will mark the first time the exhibits and the structure have received extensive attention since the 1960s. Invited members of the press will enjoy a preview party Friday, September 28. A public open house to celebrate the re-opening will be held Sunday, September 30 from 1 - 4 p.m. Guests will have the opportunity to peruse the new exhibits and explore the fresh enhancements to the building – and to enjoy games, music, and refresh-

ments. We hope that you will join us. The renovations were inspired by the previous functions of the structure. The Harmonists, a religious utopian sect from Germany, constructed Community House No. 2 for communal living in 1822. Three years later, the building was integrated into the Owen-Maclure utopian community and functioned as a school and living quarters for students and teachers. The print shop (1850s-1930s) is returning to its former place of business on the third floor. Original printing equipment will be displayed, along

with copies of 19th century posters that were printed in the shop. Upcoming renovation phases will result in a classroom/multipurpose space with wireless internet access and many technology-friendly features, which will facilitate community workshops, meetings, and distance learning opportunities. Historic New Harmony’s staff is thrilled to have Community House No. 2 returning to the regular tour route and invites you to join us in celebrating this grand building with a visit.

By Jon Neufelder At the Ag Outlook Breakfast held at the Posey County fairgrounds on September 13, Marvin and Ruth Redman were recognized for 40 years of service to the agriculture community. Jon Neufelder, Extension Educator from Purdue Extension in Posey County, presented the Redmans with a mantel clock with an inscription honoring their many years of service. “Marvin and Ruth Redman have been hosting crop test plots on their farm in cooperation with local agri-businesses and the Purdue Cooperative Extension Service since 1972,” said Neufelder. “In addition to yield testing corn and soybeans varieties, Redmans have also conducted herbicide and insecticide trials on their farm, especially back in the early years when a lot of this technology was brand new. The results of all of these trials have been shared with the agricultural community, not only here in Posey County, but in surrounding counties as well. This has helped farmers in the southwest Indiana area to choose varieties and cultural practices that work well in this area on their soils, as opposed to looking at information from other parts of the country that may not be the same.” “I’ve been involved in agriculture in Posey County in one facet or the other, since 1979,” said Neufelder, “so I have been aware of the work they have done on their farm for a long time. But when I started working for Purdue Extension in 2000, Marvin and Ruth Redman were very helpful to me in planning and conducting the various crop trials we would develop on their farm. If you think all Redmans did was supply us a place to do these tests, you would be mistaken. In addition to allowing us to use their machinery and equipment, Ruth also made all the helpers working on the plots at their farm, feel right at home by making home-cooked meals for lunch and sometimes even supper. It was never hard getting people to agree to help do test plot work at Redmans because they all knew they were in for a real treat from Ruthie’s homemade meals and desserts!” In addition to all this, they hosted a “Posey County Corn and Soybean Day” at their farm in the fall each year, where they served pork chops and all the sides to whomever wanted to come and listen to the speakers talk on agricultural topics. About 3 years ago, we switched to having a breakfast meeting instead, so that more farmers could take time out of their busy harvest schedule to have some breakfast, listen to a couple of speakers on current agricultural topics, and get back to work by no later than mid-morning. Even though this event is held at the Posey County Community Center, Ruth and Marvin Redman still oversee and make the hardy breakfast that everyone enjoys.

Saint Philip Burgoo set for September 23

DON’T FORGET

and vegetable available was thrown into the pot. We don’t change any ingredients. Most of the meat and vegetables are bought now, whereas years ago parishioners donated most of the chicken, beef and vegetables. Each year preparations begin on Friday evening. The meat is stewed and the vegetables are washed, peeled and ground. The guys work through the night. Early Saturday morning volunteers set up all the kettles and clean them, take the chicken off the bones and grind it and the stewed beef. They then carefully parcel the ingredients to be added to each of the 21 kettles lined up in the back of the church. The actual cooking begins around 11 p.m. after the meat and vegetables have been added along with the cloth bags containing the spices and the secret ingredient. Burgoo veterans have their jobs down pat. Some grind cabbage and vegetables, some stew the meats and others run the automatic potato peeler. The large kettle is equipped with an automatic stirring device, but it’s an all night vigil with the smaller kettles. It isn’t difficult finding volunteers because the event has turned into a social affair. There is no discrimination----teenagers, children and friends of club members offer their assistance. The volunteers stir until early Sunday morning when the burgoo is ready for sale.

The burgoo sells fast and is usually gone before noon except for the soup that is held back to be sold in the cafeteria. The Men’s Club would like to make more but they can handle making only so much. Dan Horstman, publicity chairman for the club, says that this is the sort of project that builds relationships and fellowship and brings about a spirit of cooperation and working together. St. Philip is a close-knit parish with hard working members. The response to the burgoo has been great with people coming from Kentucky, Illinois, Tennessee and other places to get the famous St. Philip Burgoo. To sweeten the day, a raffle will climax the event at 1:30 p.m. The grand prize of $20,000 and 20 other prizes will be given away. The tickets are $20 donation for each ticket with only 3,000 tickets being sold. You need not be present to win. (License# 126135) The sale of burgoo begins at 7:30a.m. Drive thru and carry-out patrons should bring their own containers or one can be purchased for a small fee. A lunch of burgoo, hamburgers, pie and drinks is sold in the St. Philip Center during the sale of burgoo outside. Volunteers help in the dining room, too. St. Philip is located 6 miles west of Evansville on St. Philip Road or West on the Lloyd Expressway to the St. Philip Road sign.

CHURCH/GENERAL NEWS

Missionary Chris Zickmund speaks at home church, Trinity UCC By Pam Robinson When we hear about Christian missionaries, most of us imagine them working to spread the Gospel in third-world countries. Missionary Chris Zickmund returned to his home church, Trinity United Church of Christ in Mount Vernon, to highlight the growing need for missionaries in Europe. Zickmund spoke Wednesday evening, Sept. 12, about the call God placed on him and his wife Robyn to a five-year ministry in Namur, Belgium, where they’ve served since July, 2011. “Our passion and desire is to impact the next generation,” the Zickmunds write in expressing their ministry vision. “It is our calling to share our lives with Belgian youth 15 to 25 years old so that they come to know God is real, relevant and accessible to each and every one of us. Then they can lead and develop future generations that will know who God is and seek to honor Him with their lives.” Chris Zickmund cites startling statistics to support the need to reach these youth with the Good News. Most youth have never even entered a church. “Culturally, 80 percent of the population is Catholic. Of that 80 percent, 8 per-

cent or less actually practices Catholicism. Less than 1 percent, actually .7 percent, is Protestant. That’s in a country of 11 million people,” Zickmund states. “We live in Namur, a metropolitan area of around 300,000 people. We live in the old center of the original town, which has about 100,000. In that old town center, there is no Protestant church.” Their goal is to plant a church in the center of Namur for “an unreached people.” The church will look a lot different, at least for a while, than our houses of worship here. The Zickmunds meet with youth in cafés and reach those youth, not by thumping a Bible, but by modeling Christian principles in their daily walk. In fact, an owner of one café for artists in Namur warned the Zickmunds, “no evangelizing.” Now the owner is one of their greatest supporters, for she sees the couple help the youth find meaning and direction for living. Chris Zickmund will be speaking through the end of September at U.S. churches, varying in denomination, where he and his wife Robyn have received prayer and financial support for their Belgian mission work. For more information about the Zickmunds’ ministry, readers may contact them at their

Missionaries, Robyn and Chris Zickmund email address, zickmundsbe@hotmail.com, or may visit the website, www.umw.org, of their sponsoring agency, United World

Missions, a non-denominational Christian mission organization. The couple values all prayers.

The funds were used to install new video recording equipment in the holding cells at the Superior Court building. Oeth stated that often one corrections officer is in the court room while the prisoners are left alone in the holding cells. The new equipment allows the corrections officer to monitor the holding cells from their cell phones while they are in court. He added it helps improve the overall building security. The second reading of the 2013 salary

and budget ordinance was held. Council members requested a separate line item under personnel trainee at the probation office, sheriff and jail be added for future use. They approved the salary and budget ordinance with the exception that these line items be added. The first reading of the budget was given. The state has set the levee at 2.8 percent. Auditor Nick Wildeman explained that many of the taxing units were requesting amounts higher than the 2.8 percent if they had a certain capital project planned. The general practice is to advertise for a higher amount in the hopes that it will be approved by the state. A second reading of the bud-

sentative for the American Cancer Society. “Volunteers and participants who are willing to give their time and energy to this exciting event are making a commitment to let Mount Vernon know that cancer can be defeated.” The event is held overnight as individuals and teams camp out at the Mount Vernon High School Track, with the goal of keeping at least one team member on the track at all times throughout

Mount Vernon Jr. High School Essays Online Safety By: Victoria Stallings Cyberbullying means you are bullying somebody else behind technology. It is when kids call one a name, put someone down, hack an account, posting pictures to be cruel to another, or just using rude langue to another. Cyberbullying is a very serious issue that is affecting kids all across America. Kids who cyberbully are

most of the time doing it to feel better about themselves. Cyberbullies are afraid to say something mean in front of the victim’s face, but in technology, they feel protected or safe behind a screen. Cyberbullies can make kids feel uncomfortable, scared, miserable, and so much more. Cyberbullying can happen to anyone on the internet.

When you know cyberbullying is happening, tell someone. This problem should be stopped right away. If it continues, you need to report it because in some situations, kids could have a change in their attitude, their progress in school and it can make kids extremely depressed. Cyberbullies are real. Take a position. Make cyberbullies stop for good.

By: Reid Veatch Cyberbullying is inappropriate posts, photos or video online. It is wrong to post secrets about people online. It is also wrong to put pictures or videos online to embarrass someone, especially without their permission. Cyberbullies also send mean e-mails and texts that hurt other people. Cyber bullies also make mean comments on posts

and other things like that. Cyberbullying is a problem because it hurts a lot of people's feelings. It may embarrass someone or hurt their feelings. It is also common to get scared or feel depressed. Some people get so scared that they don't want to come to school or play on sports teams. Some people may get really upset and they might even commit sui-

cide. If you are being cyberbullied, tell a trusted adult. They can help you with what you are going through. Be sure to save what they send to you or what they post. Also, remember to ignore them because they're just trying to get a rise out of you. And remember not to respond to their messages because you're supporting them.

By: Katie Carner Cyberbullying is when you harass, tease, scare or threaten people over technology. When you cyber bully you make people feel bad or you tell lies about them. People cyber bully because they don’t want to do it face to face, or they don’t think they will get in trouble if they do it over technology. It’s a problem because people do it and they don’t even realize that they are hurting people’s feelings. It affects others because they want to be treated respectfully. If it gets out of hand

the person who is getting cyber bullied could attempt suicide. People getting cyberbullied need to take action! First, they need to tell a trusted adult. Second, they need to print out the evidence. If it is on a phone, don’t delete the message. If you can, take a photo or save the message do that. Lastly, they may need to change the number on the phone, or if it’s on the Internet they may need to delete the account and make a new one. If someone has hacked in your account, make a new and strong password with

symbols, letters, and numbers. Never put your name, a friend’s name, a pet’s name, or your address. Here is an example of a strong password: Ih2eamb4s! Each letter in the password stands for a word in this sentence. I have to eat a meal before school! That’s a good password. Cyberbullying hurts people. Watch what you type on the Internet or on your phone. Things that are put on the Internet never go away. If you are getting cyberbullied tell a trusted adult. Cyberbullying affects others, don’t do it.

By: Ellee Cox Do you ever stop and think, what is cyberbullying? For those of you who do, I will tell you! Cyberbullying is bullying on the internet, texting and many more. Do you ever wonder, am I a cyberbully? Well, if you do any of these you might be one. Have you voted on an online bashing poll or posted mean or rude things about someone, insulted someone online or through a text, or done mean things throughout cyber space? If you have done mean things online or through a text, you might be

cyberbully. Don’t cyberbully! Cyberbullying is a big problem! It can be started when somebody had a bad day and wants to get there anger out. Therefore, they go to someone’s Facebook page and post hateful, mean, frightening, inappropriate, or rude things. That’s very hurtful, so don’t do it! If you wouldn’t say mean, frightening, rude, or inappropriate things to your grandparents, then don’t say it to anybody else online. It’s a problem because it affects people’s attitude, actions, and how

they feel about themselves, and it hurts others feelings. Don’t cyberbully! If you see someone being cyberbullied, you should send the victim private messages saying positive things. If you’re being cyber bullied you should first tell a trusted adult. If nothing happens, you should report it to the administrator. If still nothing happens, report it to the police! Remember to save all the things that The Shade Tree Players entertained Kunstfest crowds on Main Street in New Harthe bully said or did, so you mony, Ind. on Saturday morning.

Plans for charity replace discontentment in Cynthiana By Valerie Werkmeister Smith Township Trustee, Steve Jarboe, knows firsthand the needs of his community. He helps people, through the capacity of his office, on a daily basis with monetary assistance to pay some of their bills. With the holiday season just around the corner, Jarboe is thinking of other ways to help Smith Twp. residents. He appeared at the September 11, Cynthiana Town Board meeting to ask for help. Jarboe stated that with the help of the Presbyterian Church, his office provided 25 Thanksgiving dinners to residents in need two years ago. Unfortunately, last year he did not have the funds to continue the goodwill offering. He wants to make sure he’s able to do it this year. He requested that the a notice be included on the town’s water bill asking for donations be dropped off at the town hall. He would like to have can goods and other non-perishable items as well as monetary donations so that he can purchase turkeys. If there is enough support, and enough money, he will purchase hams to distribute for Christmas, as well. Town board members enthusiastically agreed to allow the town hall be a drop-off

point for the donations. Anyone who would like to offer monetary assistance should make the checks payable to the Smith Township Trustee’s Office. Board members discussed the status of a nuisance complaint on a violation of animals prohibited ordinance at 10759 Main Street. The property is owned by Rick and Tara Davis, who were not in attendance at the meeting. Neighbors had complained in the past about the Davis’ having a horse and a pony as well as goats on their property in town. However, in previous meetings, Tara had argued that the animals were there for therapy for her physically and mentally challenged son. During the July 10, meeting, board members agreed to give the Davis’ a 60-day trial period. Tara compromised by agreeing to remove the horse and the goat from the premises and keep the pony. She also agreed to ensure the manure smell would be minimal by removing it daily. According to board members, they have continued to receive complaints regarding the condition of the Davis’ property. They also stated that a new zoning ordinance went into effect September 1, that would place the Davis’ in violation. The Posey County

Corn, from Page A1 the spring, without substantial increases or decreases. What that tells us is that storing corn still makes some sense if one believes corn prices can still rally and that there is limited concern about a major drop in prices. “Soybeans are different because of the very large South American production. If they have a reasonable growing season, we’re going to start seeing lower soybean prices by maybe January and especially February and March.” The strong cash and futures prices will help some grain producers offset drought-induced harvest losses. October grain prices also will

influence the amount some insured producers will receive in indemnity payments. But the reduced yields and high prices do little to help the negative profit margins of livestock producers struggling to feed their herds. “The livestock industry gets just a tiny bit of reprieve in the sense that corn isn’t as desperately short as I think many people thought going into this report,” Hurt said. “On the other hand, corn prices aren’t going to fade substantially. It’s going to be very difficult for the livestock industry to just hold on as cash flows are probably going to be negative for the most part.”

It is being held on a Tuesday due to Fall Break on Monday.

ordinance is listed under 153.020 General Provisions, 153.021 General Land Use Limitations. In section (B), the Limitation on Domestic Animals in Non-Agricultural Zones states, “in all zoning districts except the Agricultural District, animals permitted on lots or in structures are limited to domestic animals (such as dogs and cats) and the number of animals is limited to less than four. Board members will send the Davis’ a letter that they are not in compliance with this ordinance and will begin facing fines in 10 days if the situation is not corrected. Nathan Bickers was sworn in as a new reserve officer who will assist Cynthiana Town Marshal, Andy Porath, with his duties. Bickers also works a full-time job and will work various hours as needed. The first public meeting was also held for the town’s annual budget. The total budget estimate is $326,425. The budget will be adopted during their October 9, meeting. Scott Cox reported that he had received a quote from Whitledge Tree Stump and Debris Removal to remove three dead trees and three tree stumps from the park at a cost of $1,275. Board members approved the quote. Jim Sheets noted that there has been a lot

of heavy semi-tractor traffic on the newly paved North Street. He would like to discourage semis from using that road in order to preserve its integrity as long as possible. The board agreed to look into an ordinance or post signs notifying drivers that semis are not permitted on that street. The board also noted that any campers or pontoon boats parked along the streets for an extended period of time are in violation of ordinance # 65-4. The ordinance states that any vehicle left standing upon the public streets or alleys within the town for more than 48-hours is unlawful, unless it bears a current, valid motor vehicle registration plate. A letter will be sent notifying any offenders that they are in violation of this ordinance. An audience member questioned the merits of the newly passed grass clippings ordinance. Board members explained the validity of the ordinance stating that grass clippings blown into the street will collect and clog storm sewer drains. A first-time offense will carry a $10 fine and each subsequent offense will be $25. The next meeting will be held at 6 p.m. on October 9, at the town hall.

OPINION

Heeding all email warnings leaves little to do but worry I recently received this email regarding all the emails and warnings she had received over the months and years. How did we ever make it without all the warnings and the instant information? I couldn't help but think about how true it is and wanted to share it, with TRUTH... her permission, with you! STRANGER We all have to relax and THAN remember that for the lon- FICTION gest time, we were able to BY DAVE survive without the internet. PEARCE As we progress into 2012, I want to thank everyone for the educational e-mails over the past years. I am totally screwed up now and have little chance of recovery. I can no longer open a bathroom door without using a paper towel, nor let the waitress put lemon slices in my ice water without worrying about the bacteria on the lemon peel. I can't sit down on a hotel bedspread because I can only imagine what has happened on it since it was last washed. I have trouble shaking hands with someone who has been driving because the number one pastime while driving alone is picking one's nose.

Eating a little snack sends me on a guilt trip because I can only imagine how many gallons of trans fats I have consumed over the years. I can't touch any woman's handbag for fear she has placed it on the floor of a public toilet. Or on the floor of a hospital room. Staph infections... I must send my special thanks for the email about rat poo in the glue on envelopes because I now have to use a wet sponge with every envelope that needs sealing. ALSO, now I have to scrub the top of every can I open for the same reason. I can't have a drink in a bar because I fear I'll wake up in a bathtub full of ice with my kidneys gone. I can't eat at KFC because their chickens are actually horrible mutant freaks with no eyes, feet or feathers. I can't use cancer-causing deodorants even though I smell like a water buffalo on a hot day. Thanks to you I have learned that my prayers only get answered if I forward an e-mail to seven of my friends and make a

wish within five minutes. Because of your concern , I no longer drink Coca Cola because it can remove toilet stains. I no longer buy fuel without taking someone along to watch the car, so a serial killer doesn't crawl in my back seat when I'm filling up. I no longer use Cling Wrap in the microwave because it causes seven different types of cancer. And thanks for letting me know I can't boil a cup of water in the microwave anymore because it will blow up in my face, disfiguring me for life. I no longer go to the cinema because I could be pricked with a needle infected with AIDS when I sit down. I no longer go to shopping centers because someone will drug me with a perfume sample and rob me.. And I no longer answer the phone because someone will ask me to dial a number for which I will get a huge phone bill with calls to Jamaica , Uganda , Singapore and Uzbekistan .. Thanks to you I can't use anyone's toilet but mine because a big black snake could be lurking under the seat and cause me in-

stant death when it bites my butt. And thanks to your great advice I can't ever pick up a dime coin dropped in the car park because it was probably placed there by a sex molester waiting to grab me as I bend over. I can't do any gardening because I'm afraid I'll get bitten by the Violin Spider and my hand will fall off. If you don't send this e-mail to at least 144,000 people in the next 70 minutes, a large dove with diarrhea will land on your head at 5 p.m. tomorrow afternoon, and the fleas from 120 camels will infest your back, causing you to grow a hairy hump. I know this will occur because it actually happened to a friend of my next door neighbor’s ex mother-in-law's second husband's cousin's best friend's beautician! Oh, and by the way... A German scientist from Argentina, after a lengthy study, has discovered that people with insufficient brain activity read their emails with their hand on the mouse Don't bother taking it off now, it's too late. P. S. I now keep my toothbrush in the living room, because I was told by e-mail that water splashes over 6 ft. out of the toilet..

In that He told the truth about racial in- column, I referred anonymously

to an acquaintance who embarrassed—and angered—me by stating, in my daughter’s presence during a public event, that I must embarrass her when I take photos for the paper and she’s around. For all I know, the comment may be accurate, but it hurt and shamed me to think my occupation might be a source of embarrassment for my daughter. The incident was a starting point for me to reflect on how it really doesn’t take much for parents to embarrass their teenage children. I’m surprised someone

Guest Column by State Rep. Wendy McNamara Finding a hidden treasure There might be hundreds of dollars waiting for you in unclaimed property. There is more than $350 million in unclaimed property, belonging to current and former residents of Indiana. This money could be from dormant bank accounts, lost or forgotten uncashed checks, stocks or bonds, dividends and bond interest, insurance proceeds, utility refunds and/or safe deposit boxes; all waiting for its rightful owner to step forth. Project Reunite, an outreach program launched by Attorney General Greg Zoeller, has been established to return lost/unclaimed money back to Hoosiers. Countless Hoosiers have already been helped. At the State Fair last month, the Unclaimed Property booth helped return over $75,000 to visitors! Each year, millions of dollars in assets are turned over to the Office of the Indiana Attorney General as unclaimed property. It is important to note that unwanted property is not the same as unclaimed property. Items that are not considered unclaimed property include abandoned vehicles, real estate, furniture and stolen property. It is a common misconception that vacant houses are listed as unclaimed property when, in fact, tangible items are rarely included in unclaimed property. Those that are included usually consist of small items, such as coins or jewelry that can fit inside a safe deposit box. How does property become unclaimed? Indiana law states that property is considered "unclaimed" when the holder of the asset,

the doubt concerning their intentions. No wonder pride is considered one of the seven deadly sins. It moves us away from compassion, from overlooking someone’s mistake on a bad day. Lord knows, I’ve stuck my foot in my mouth plenty of times. My recent column serves as just one example. I’m now washing my mouth out with soap to disinfect it from foot-in-mouth disease, a crippling companion to living for the journey.

Gavel Gamut’s Christopher Stevens We are going to have an election on November sixth. Millions of Americans are going to select thousands of their fellow Americans to do the myriad tasks of running everything from the military to sewage plants. We travel across our country and take no thought of the highways, clean water, safe GAVEL food and GAMUT free moveBY JUDGE ment. But some- JIM REDWINE body has to provide all these services after others have planned and paid for them. And while some compensation may be paid for these services to the public, a great deal is done simply out of what Robert Kennedy called, “Just a desire to serve.” And much of what is freely given as service is never recognized and may be dangerous. The acco-

isn’t marketing properly ventilated paper bags as the latest head gear for parents of teenagers. In illustrating my point about easily embarrassed teens, though, I wish I had omitted reference to my anonymous acquaintance in my column. I would have done better to simply ignore or to address that person directly. So today, I am eating a little humble pie for my lapse in kindness. I let my pride get in my way. There’s never any shame in giving people the benefit of

lades about Ambassador Stevens after his death remind us that he and many others serve anonymously until tragedy occurs. Every election cycle I find myself asking why so many people are willing to subject themselves to the rigors and heartache of political campaigns when most of us never give a thought of saying thank you unless we have the occasion to offer condolences after the fact of some tragedy. Henry David Thoreau said the mass of humanity just live lives of quiet desperation. But it appears to me, based on the willingness of so many to serve their fellow citizens without seeking acclaim, that there are a great many who live quietly, but not des-

This letter is being written to the residents of Southern Indiana. My name is James Carter, and I need your help to make the citizens of our counties aware of a problem that can be avoided. The state has a large 2 billion dollar surplus that will most likely only benefit a few counties in northern Indiana if certain powers get their way. At the same time, many of our counties’ infrastructures are wearing out fast, unless we band together as a block and demand a proper share of the surplus that we helped create. Small populated counties, especially those that have a lot of federally owned land, have little for a tax base, yet

we cut to the bone to make the state look good. Now is the time for the state to reciprocate and help the counties. I propose a 2 million dollar return to each county spread over a 6 year period. This is less than 10 percent of the surplus and we need to move quickly before the money is allocated for pet projects, such as the bypass around Chicago, which will help only 10 percent of Indiana’s residents. The Association of Indiana Counties will be meeting in late September to ask for funds at the next legislative session. The word is out; they are going for funds already allocated. Why? It makes no sense to try to go after funds that have been traditionally

allocated, such as the state police. A small portion of surplus has already been allocated for a tax return and I agree with that, but the state should include the counties also. Please call or write your representative and tell them the counties need part of the surplus for their infrastructure, to insure the roads and bridges are safe, to travel to work, for our school buses, and to get to our local markets. The only way we can get support for what I proposed is to ask all the counties in the state to get involved. The aging infrastructure is the common problem throughout the state. James M.Carter Tell City, Ind.

Thanks to local law enforcement On August 13, I experience a break-in and a robbery at my home. Thanks to the quick actions and hard work of the Posey County Sheriff’s Dept., and especially Det. Tom

Latham, the people responsible have been arrested. Also thanks to New Harmony Town Marshal Scott Champlin for his help. Det. Latham immediately went to work.

Within three days, an arrest was made and some of my property recovered. By the next week, another arrest was made. Great job and thanks to all. Karen Mathews

Appreciation for Boy Scout Troop 386 I want to thank Boy Scout perately. They just want to Troop 386 for all their work serve and we are fortunate at Kunstfest, we couldn’t do it without you and your leaders. they do.

TRI-STATE K-9 UNIVERSITY Where Dog Whisperer and Dog Rescuer Meet Bobbi Jo Bottomley

Brenda Vanderver

and actual PC Pound Puppies!

Dog whisperer Bobbi Jo Bottomley unlocked the door to the first building ever to house her Tri-State K9 University just this past June 11. At Bottomley’s invitation, dog rescuer Brenda Vanderver set up an office for her PC Pound Puppies inside the same building at 1001 North Main Street in Mount Vernon. When the Tri-State’s most diversified dog whisperer and Posey County’s most dedicated dog rescuer join forces, the result is a doggone good place for K9’s and humans to bond and grow. Since 2005, Bottomley has offered quality higher education for canines at Evansville’s Pet Food Center North, where she and five trainers (all graduates of Tri-State K9) still hold group classes. At her new

Mount Vernon facility, she can now provide private lessons. In addition, she has added boarding and daycare for the public and rehabilitation for PC Pound Puppies to her services. Bottomley can board and offer daycare for up to 20 dogs. She kennels the dogs and lets them out into a fenced area to potty, exercise and socialize. Boarding runs $15 from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. while daycare runs $15 from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. If a dog stays 24 hours, the cost is $30. In a separate room, complete with its own fenced-in exercise area, Bottomley keeps about a dozen of the county’s stray and homeless dogs that PC Pound Puppies places in foster and forever homes. The adoption fee is $95, and adoptive parents receive a $20 discount on the $99 five-week beginning, or freshman, K9 course. “We provide dog psychology and people training,” Bottomley jokes before turning serious. “All dogs learn differently and have different needs,” she maintains. “We

create a training method and activity for each dog’s way of learning and the owner’s lifestyle.” Everything at TriState K9 University contributes to the “No dog left behind policy”: namely, that all dogs are equal and need the same love and attention. Additional services provided at Tri-State K9’s 1001 North Main Street facility include a $30 treadmill lesson and a $15 bath, brush, nail trim and ear cleaning. Although the facility allows drop-offs for boarding and daycare as early as 7 a.m., walk-in clients are received only from 1p.m. – 7 p.m., Monday through Friday, and 1 p.m. – 5 p.m., Saturday. Otherwise, clients are accepted by appointment only. The facility is closed on Sunday. A dog lover since childhood, Bottomley works with dogs outside her facility also. Several dog owners have retained her services for training their pets in-home. Beyond that, she certifies dogs for the K9 Angels Therapy program run by Illinois therapist Cindy Kiefer. K9 angels

travel with their owners to preschools and nursing homes and pamper the young and young at heart with their warm, fuzzy love. Likewise, Bottomley trains and certifies service dogs for America’s heroes in the Tri-State—our military veterans.

By Dave Pearce The Heritage Hills Patriots must have enjoyed looking at Wes Harness on Friday night at the Jungle in Lincoln City. For nearly the entire first half, either a faulty helmet strap or a clever way of tackling meant that the speedy senior back was out of his helmet and out of the game about every other play. A new rule this season states that if a player’s helmet comes off in the course of a play, that player must come out for the next play. And who better for the Patriots to see on the sidelines than the guy that eventually ran nearly 200 yards against them. Harness lost his helmet no fewer than ten times in the first half. But at the end of the night, they would see his backside more than his face as the offensive line opened a bit of daylight and Harness did the rest, bringing the Vikings from a 2713 third-quarter deficit to a 34-27 victory in the fourth quarter. In a game that was not particularly well officiated on either side, a pass interference call after Jake Bender had apparently intercepted a Heritage Hills pass in the third quarter might just have done the trick. It set up the Patriots for an easy score from inside the 10 to give them what appeared to be an insurmountable 27-13 lead with 9:22 remaining in the game. But more importantly for the Vikings and their fans, it apparently fired up a team that had seemed just a half-second slow at times and perhaps not playing to its potential at other times in the game. “For some reason, it just seemed like we were slow off the ball on both sides of the ball,” Coach Joe Gengelbach said. “But for some reason there we just got kept telling the kids we could still do this, despite the fact they held onto the ball most of the third quarter.” But when the interference call was made and the Patriots scored on the next play, Harness seemed to take the call personally. “If that doesn’t fire you up, then just take your equipment and get out of here,” Harness shouted at his teammates as they headed to the sidelines. From that point on, things went the Viking’s way. The extra point attempt hit the crossbar, falling back on

Lady Vikings off to regional again, Camp is medalist By Dave Pearce Success brings expectations. There’s no better example of that than the North Posey girls’ golf team. Last year’s team advanced from the sectional into regional play and won its second straight Pocket Athletic Conference title. So with everyone back from last year’s team, the Lady Vikings had a bullseye on their back every time they hit the links this year. But like true champions do, this team has not disappointed their fans or themselves. Last week it was their third Pocket Athletic title in a row and this weekend at Helfrich Golf Course on Saturday, the Lady Vikings, under the direction of Kevin Wassmer, proved they could not only handle the pressure but they thrived on it. When the dust had settled, senior Maggie Camp was the best golfer in the Evansville Sectional, shooting a 74, and the Lady Vikings were headed back to the regional, where they will play on Saturday at Eagle Valley. But the coach always wants to see his team do just a little better and Saturday’s round was no exception. “I really thought we would have contended just a little better,” Wassmer said after the team was awarded their ribbons. “I really thought we should be in the 330 range (they shot 345) but we did what we needed to do and that’s what really matters. They all battled and kept their heads in it and they have a lot to be proud of.” Wassmer said that his team did not have their “A” game at the sectional and that they would be working hard this week on the things they will need to do too take them to the next level. “This is a big deal for a school like North Posey to come in here and advance out of this sectional,” Wassmer said.

Although advancing out of the regional is not impossible, it will be a monumental task for the Lady Vikings as no less than four teams playing in the regional are ranked among the state’s top 15. But Wassmer believes everyone on the team is certainly capable of playing better golf than they played on Saturday, even his top golfer Camp. “That’s a great score (74) but Maggie really didn’t really have her best game today,” Wassmer said. “She was kind of scraping it around a little bit but she did what she needed to do and we talked a lot about that..about what it takes to play well when you don’t have your best game. And she really did that today.” Last year’s team finished fifth in the regional but was only nine strokes away from third place, seemingly a lofty goal this year. But certainly attainable, according to their Members of the North Posey Viking regional-bound girls’ golf team are, left to right, coach. Taylor Patton, Allison Koester, Medalist Mahhie Camp, Coach Kevin Wassmer, Shelby “We have to shoot in the 325-330 range Ackerman, and Kendall Crowder. Photos by Dave Pearce next week,” Wassmer said. “And if you take away all their three-putts today, we are there. Just getting rid of the three-putts will get us to where we need to be.” Allison Koester, with an 83, was a solid number two for the Lady Vikings but she, too, struggled at times, especially in the middle of the round. “She started out really well and went through a spell there where she struggled with her putting,” Wassmer said. “She came back and shot 40 on the back, which again is not as well as she wants to play but she hung in there and battled.” The quintet finished out the day with Taylor Patton shooting a 91, Kendall Crowder a 97, and Shelby Ackerman finished with 103. The Vikings will play the regional on Saturday at Eagle Valley.

Defense carries Wildcats to shutout of Washington By Steven Kochersperger Revenge is a dish best served cold. Friday night it was the Mount Vernon Wildcats delivering that dish to the visiting Washington Hatchets. Last season Washington ended the year for the Wildcats in the sectional by beating Mount Vernon 35-0, but this matchup would be a complete flip from last year as the Mount Vernon Wildcats beat Washington by the same score, 35-0, in an important mid season Big Eight Conference game in Mount Vernon. “We played with a tremendous amount of confidence tonight, which was great to see.” Mount Vernon Coach Paul Maier said after the game. “We’ve been lacking that the last three weeks. We spent a lot less time on the field in practice this week and more time in the classroom talking about mental toughness, confidence and rising up when the need is there. We talked about leadership and our seniors did a phenomenal job tonight of leading.” One of those seniors leading the way Friday night was quarterback River VanZant. VanZant returned to action after missing playing time this season due to injury. VanZant played three quarters of football against the Hatchets and led the way by rushing for two touchdowns and throwing two more, both to senior wideout JT Silvers. The Wildcat quarterback ended the game 7 for 13 with 140 yards passing and added 72 yards on the ground as well. “He looked very good tonight,” Maier said of River VanZant. ”He got better and better as the game went on and I’m very happy with his game tonight.” VanZant wasn’t the only player to come

back and play well for the Wildcats. Junior running back Austin Guthrie, who missed last week’s game in Vincennes, started off slowly Friday but ended up contributing and having a great game for the Cats. And seeing Guthrie return to action that way made Coach Maier happy. “He played very well tonight. Austin is finally seeing the running lanes. He’s not running straight up and down, he’s lowering his pads. Those 3-yard gains that happened in the first quarter turned into 6 yard gains. That’s because of our O-Line and how he was running the ball tonight,” Maier said. The Mount Vernon running attack racked up a total of 259 yards on 48 attempts. VanZant (River) began the game, after the defense held the Hatchets to a three and out, on the Hatchet 8 yard line thanks to a great punt return. VanZant got the Wildcats on the board first at the 8:45 mark in the first quarter on a quarterback keeper play from the one yard line. After a successful point after attempt the Wildcats led early 7-0. And they never looked back. The Wildcat defense played well from the beginning holding the visiting Hatchets to 3-and-outs the first three possessions of the game. With 1:13 left in the first quarter senior Wildcat Brian Koch sacked the Washington quarterback, firing up the team and the fans. Koch would also contribute offensively helping the Wildcats move the ball down field and be in a position to score more points. In the second quarter the Wildcats would Mount Vernon junior Craig Isaac picks up the tackle as soon as the Washington runbuild their cushion as the Mount Vernon offense drove down the field to score before ning back gets the ball from his quarterback while Wildcat senior Brian Koch rushes in from behind to assist if needed.

Vikings win thriller field and helping make up for an early missed extra point by the Vikings, one of a few mistakes made by the Vikes as nerves seemed to get in the way early in the game. But determination took over for the Vikings. “We had challenged them a little bit at half-time and they stepped up and definitely late in the third quarter and early in the fourth,” Gengelbach said. “We got a couple of breaks there and that’s going to happen once in awhile. I think our defense got a little bit inspired there. There were two big turnovers and both of them led to scores.” On the ensuing kick-off return, the Patriots kicked the ball away from Harness to sophomore James Marshall, who rant the ball to the 30, some of the best field position the Vikings had seen all night. But junior lineman Tyler Adkins went down on the play and was lost for the remainder of the game. An MRI was scheduled for Saturday but results were not available at press time. But with or without Adkins, who had shown a burst of speed and made a touchdown-saving tackle in the second period, these Vikings were determined and momentum had switched. After an incomplete pass on first down, quarterback Alec Werry threw the ball over the top to Nick Neidig whose 6-foot-4 frame allowed him to go up and make the catch at the Heritage Hills 46. On the very next play Werry found Marshall who caught the ball and carried it to the Patriot 33 before going out of bounds and

stopping the clock. The Patriots took a time out but momentum had already swung. Coming out of the time out, Jacob Bender caught a short pass to the 25 and on second and two- Werry hit Harness who was brought down at the 16. On first down, Harness gained two, and picked up six more on the next play. That left the Vikings facing third-and-2. That’s when Werry looked for Neidig in the back of the end zone and the senior apparently wanted the ball more as he hauled it in over a receiver to put life back in the North Posey sidelines with 7:02 remaining. Neidig’s extra point made the score 27-20. On the ensuing kick-off return, Neidig’s kick-off allowed the Viking special team to get down the field and the bone-jarring hit forced a rare Patriot fumble at the Viking 14. The Viking offense was back on the field and after an incomplete pass, Colton Martin gained five and left the Vikings facing third and five. But again, the senior Harness would not be denied and got outside the containment and carried the ball to the three. He ran it in on the next play to tie the score at 27-all with 4:50 remaining. A fired up special team got down the field and Marshall teamed with Alex Goebel to put the stop on any thoughts the Patriots might have of running for a big return. The Viking defense then stepped up and proved they could stop what had appeared to be an unstoppable offense. They held the Patriots to negative two yards in three downs

and forced a punt at 3:57. On the first play from scrimmage, harness got loose and much of the Patriot team got to see his backside as he carried the ball to their 30. On first down, Martin picked up five and the Patriots decided it was time to use their final time out. But again, it was to no avail as the Vikings could smell blood. Coming out of the time out, Werry found Marshall at the 15 yard line. Then, on first down, Harness got loose for what appeared to be the go-ahead touchdown but a holding call backed the Vikings up where they not only lost the score but faced first and 20. But there was no stopping this train. Harness got ten of the yards back on first down as his line held up. On second down, Harness was “horse-collared” to stop him on a big gain, moving the ball half the distance to the goal line. On the first play, Harness again got the call and again, he delivered. With 2:06 remaining, the Vikings had taken a 34-27 lead. “We have told our kids and I think they all feel this way that everybody has a job,” Gengelbach said. “The linemen have to do their job and they are never going to get any pats on the head. They are just the unsung heroes. We always call them ‘God’s Children’ because without them, you don’t do anything and none of the skill people can do anything. You aren’t going to pass, run, or throw the ball without them. The boys understand that in the formations we run, Wes is going to tote

it a lot. But the same token, these guys take a lot of pride doing the things they can do to make us gain yards.” Again, a deep and high kick led to poor field position for the Patriots and with the clock winding down, the Patriots were forced to go to the air. After a loss of two on the first pass play, senior Eric O’Risky stepped in front of the intended receiver and stayed on his feet for the interception and 15 yards put the game away for the Vikings. “The big interception there at the end really helped us,” Gengelbach said. Early in the game, the Vikings lost a touchdown on a rare penalty when a player came off the field. The win raised the Vikings to 4-0 in the Pocket Athletic Conference and to 5-0 overall. “Our number one goal every year is to win the conference,” Gengelbach said. “We have three more games and we have Forest Park up there next week and for some reason, they always play against us like there’s no tomorrow. Then Tell City got a big win tonight and we still have to face them. You have to take one game at a time and focus on that game. You do what you have to do to get ready to do for that one game and then you can begin preparing for the next one. No one wants to slip up or fall down because we have had five tough opponents and have been fortunate enough so far to come out on top.” Juniors Trey Staples and Tyler Adkins are out and are game-by-game.

Defense propels Cats halftime. River VanZant connected with JT Silver on a 17-yard pass taking the Wildcats down to the 13 yard line with 2:18 left in the half. The Cats would get in position to score from the six yard line thanks to running back Austin Guthrie, and VanZant ran it in from there for his second touchdown of the game putting Mount Vernon ahead 14-0 at the half. The third quarter began with the Wildcats on their own 25 yard line, looking to take the ball down field and build a three possession lead. The long drive, marked by two Wildcat holding penalties, ended in a beautiful 60-yard touchdown pass from River VanZant to JT Silvers. Silvers broke free from his defenders, caught the long pass, and took it to the end zone to put the Cats up 21-0. The pair would hook up one more time in the quarter as VanZant threw his second touchdown to Silvers, this time from 11 yards out with just 48 seconds left in the third quarter. The fourth quarter would find more of the same. But instead of it being River VanZant doing the scoring, this time it would be his

cousin Ethan finding the end zone. With 9:42 left in the game Ethan VanZant ran 73 yards to the end zone but had the score called back on a Wildcat holding penalty. That wouldn’t stop VanZant though. Just five minutes later he iced the game with a touchdown for the Cats putting the score to 35-0. And that would do it for the Wildcats as they improved their overall record to 2-3 and found their first Big Eight Conference win of the season. Friday’s game did a lot for individual players as well as help build confidence for the overall team. “In High School football any win one week builds confidence for the next week,” Coach Paul Maier said. The Wildcats will need that confidence as they try to put another win on the board this week for Homecoming as they host Conference opponent Boonville Pioneers. The Pioneers are 1-4 after losing 38-14 Saturday to Broad Ripple High School in Indianapolis. Gametime for this Friday’s homecoming game is 7 p.m.

Strong Wildcats get best of net Vikings By Steven Kochersperger It’s always fun for the coaches, athletes and fans when any Mount Vernon Wildcat team plays the North Posey Vikings. This week the Mount Vernon Wildcat boys’ tennis team visited North Posey and put away the Vikings 5-0. In number 1 singles Wildcat Jevin Redman continues to play well and defeated Viking Kyle Voegel in convincing fashion 6-1, 6-1. Ross Canada continued to be very consistent as he beat Viking Reed Gerteisen 6-3, 6-2. Todd Sheffer is the number 3 singles player for the Wildcats and has been battling through an ankle injury and trying to regain his speed. But a bad ankle wouldn’t hold Sheffer back against the Vikings as he held off the newest Viking, JeanPhilipp Eckert, a foreign exchange student from Germany, 6-4, 7-6. In doubles play the Wildcats continued the sweep as senior Seth Reeves and freshman Luke Steinhart beat the number 1 doubles team of Griffin Motz and Drake Davenport 5-7, 6-0, 6-0. It’s been an up and down season for Reeves and Steinhart but Wildcat coach Vicki Rueger has high hopes for them. “They have many good skills but need to work on consistency. Without a doubt, they are capable of defeating our toughest competition if they can string together more of the good components of their game,” Rueger said. The other doubles team for Mount Vernon Logan Brown and Hunter Wilson defeated Vikings Christian Jones and Grant Scheller to complete the tennis sweep for the Wildcats. The reserves even got into the action as they swept the Vikings 3-0. And though Rueger was happy to beat the cross county Vikings, she still sees room for improvement for the team. “I was happy for the win but would have liked the team to have played more aggressively. We made too many unforced errors but are hoping to correct that tonight against Vincennes,” Rueger said. That would happen the very next day in Mount Vernon as the Wildcats beat Big Eight Conference opponent Vincennes Lincoln 5-0, pushing the Wildcats record to 10-1 on the season. And with the tennis sectionals just a week-and-a-half away, the Mount Vernon Wildcats tennis team is playing well and focused.

Vikings recover from loss to win pair of conference matches By Dave Pearce The North Posey tennis teams seems to be heading in the right direction as sectional time nears. Following a lop-sided loss to heralded mount Vernon early in the week, the Vikings fought back to defeat Forest Park 3-2 and Tecumseh 5-0 in a p[air of big Pocket Athletic Conference matches this week. Coach Brandon Barrett believes his team is improving just in time for the sectional, which will be at a new location will all new teams for the Vikings this season. “They realigned in because Wood Memorial did not field a boys’ tennis team this year,” Barrett said recently. “I guess they looked at the situation and that left the Princeton sec-

tional with only three teams and there were five at Mount Vernon. We are the closest team, geographically, to Princeton so we will go up there this year.” It should be a welcome change, at least this year, for the Vikings. The other teams in the tournament are Gibson Southern, Princeton, and Tecumseh. The Vikings stack up well against each of those teams, depending on the draw. Individual results for this week’s action aside from the Mount Vernon contest are as follows: NP 3 FP 2 #1 S Kyle Voegel (NP) def Sam Beckman 6-4 6-2 #2 S Trent Weyer (FP) def Reed Gerteisen 6-3 6-0 #3 S Jan-Philipp Eckert (NP) def Blake Emmert 6-0 6-3

Lady Wildcats upset Bosse, gain Big Eight win over Princeton The game Thursday started quickly for the Wildcats as they scored all three goals in the first ten minutes of action. In fact the first two goals came in the first 2:30 of action. The first goal was scored by Zoee Brown as she took a cross pass and netted the goal. The second goal came soon after as freshman Hadley Whoberry scored taking a corner kick from teammate Kinsey Johnson and placing it in the net. The third and final goal for the Wildcats was scored on a penalty kick by Whoberry who netted her second goal of the game. The defense took over from there to defeat the Tigers. Coach Castle was on cloud nine after the game saying “We have had a good week of soccer. We are still coming off the excitement of the upset against Bosse, so this first conference win is even better.” Castle continues to stress the fact that the team still has things they need to work out and plans on working on those things, especially offensively. “Offensively we need to look at what we need to change to score more often,” Castle said. Overall the Wildcats are happy with how they played this week and are looking forward to the remainder of the season. The Wildcats play host to South Knox this Thursday and Vincennes Lincoln Saturday morning.

By Steven Kochersperger What a week the Mount Vernon Wildcats lady soccer team had this week. It’s a week Coach Liz Castle and the team have been waiting for all year. After struggling through injuries and a tough stretch in their schedule, the Wildcats got two big wins this week upsetting Evansville Bosse on the road 1-0 and Princeton at home 3-1. On Tuesday the Wildcats traveled to the EVSC soccer fields in Evansville to play Bosse High School. In what proved to be a physical game the Wildcats played well and scored the lone goal beating Bosse 1-0. The goal was scored on a corner kick from Kinsey Johnson to Zoee Brown. Coach Liz Castle was really pleased with the win. “The girls played really well, worked very hard, and never gave up. The game got rather physical, but the girls stayed strong and never stopped working hard. I am very proud of how hard they played. This is the best they have played all season,” said Castle. And you know what they say about winning? Winning breeds winning. That was true this week as the Wildcats continued their winning ways on Thursday in front of the home crowd beating the Princeton Tigers 3-1.

Lady Wildcat vollyball team continues to roll as tourney nears By Steven Kochersperger After a busy week defeating cross county rival North Posey, Boonville and winning the Mount Vernon Invitational by defeating Memorial and powerhouse BarrReeve, the Mount Vernon volleyball team came into this week flying high. After playing five games the week before the Wildcats only had one game on the schedule this week. That opponent, Big Eight Conference foe Princeton, found out how powerful and good the Wildcats volleyball team can be Thursday night. The Wildcats beat the visiting Tigers 25-17, 25-3, 25-9 to improve their overall re-

cord and continue to help prepare them for the last month of the season. Mount Vernon coach Andi Allford continues to praise her team for their efforts and the results they are seeing. “I was pleased with the way my girls played. They did a great job of playing their own game no matter what the situation was,” said coach Allford. The Wildcats didn’t seem too bothered by an early tight first set and continued playing hard winning that set 25-17. It was the second set that really deflated the visiting Tigers and allowed the Wildcats to gain confi-

dence and have a little fun. Wildcat Megan Martin seemed to spend all night at the serving line as she served 23 straight points, two of which were Aces, and put the Wildcats ahead in the second set 22-0. After that streak ended with a Princeton point, the Mount Vernon crowd gave the lady Wildcats and Martin a standing ovation and encouraged the team on to their 25-3 set win. And how would coach Allford describe that second set? “It was fun,” Allford said. “These girls work hard for me. They have a good chemistry and make it fun.” Coach Allford was also very happy for Martin saying it was a nice recovery for her as she had

struggled in games before. Martin also helped the team by putting up 32 assists. The Wildcats continued playing clean, fundamentally sound volleyball by putting away the game with a 25-9 final set. Jacey Ritzert led the Wildcats with 15 kills while Duckworth had 11 digs and Livia Hopper had five blocks. And even with such an impressive Wildcat win Thursday night, Allford still has her eyes firmly on the road ahead. With the sectionals only a month away, Allford points out that there is still room to grow as a team and get better. “There is always room for improvement but I am pleased with

the progress we are making,” Allford said. “The main thing we need to focus on for sectionals is a faster game and smart decisions with the ball.” If the Lady Cats do head their coaches words, the sky is the limit for this very talented team. In reserve action, the Wildcats beat the Princeton Tigers by scores of 25-18, 25-21. The Lady Wildcats Volleyball team will continue their season this week by visiting Evansville Bosse and Mater Dei and return to action at home on Saturday, Sept. 22 as they take on Tell City/Vincennes. Saturday’s matches begin at 10 a.m.

Lady Vikings can’t finish Chargers, get win at Reitz By Dave Pearce The North Posey Lady volleyball Vikings have had one problem that has haunted them all season long… finishing. That was the case again this week against the Pike Central Chargers as the Vikings ran away with the first game. It looked like it would be three and done for the Lady Vikings as they appeared confident and energized against a team that admittedly, they probably should have beaten, especially after taking the first game in such a 25-9 convincing fashion. But up jumped the demon again, the inability to go ahead with the kill once the prey is wounded. The Lady Chargers

seemed to sense that the Vikings were not going to completely put the hammer down on them and they realized that if they hung in there just long enough, good things just might happen for them. The Lady Vikings made some mental mistakes and physical mistakes the second game and in a game that went back and forth, the Lady Chargers got the momentum at the right time and came back to knot the score at one game all. In the third game, the Vikings again allowed Pike Central to hang around but managed to take a 20-17 lead. But over the last few points of the contest, they were outscored 8-1 and fell behind two games to one.

In the fourth game, it appeared that the Lady Chargers were going to wrap it up in four games as they jumped out to an early lead before the Vikings fought back to tie it at six points all. But Pike Central scored the next four to take a 10-6 lead and again seize momentum. The Chargers built a 17-10 lead before the lady Vikings showed they were not ready to quit. An Ashley Schoor spike followed by a well-placed Bri Brown serve and a Hannah Harness kill and the Vikings were right back in the thick of things. The Chargers scored then traded points with the Vikings. But after an Emma Werry unreturnable serve and a Jordan Butler spike, Kiley Robertson smashed down a kill to end a long point and give the Vikes a little momentum but they still trailed 20-17 when Pike Central took a time out. Seniors Robertson and Butler them seemed to take over as they each came up big in the next few points and the Lady Vikings finally caught the Lady Chargers at 22-all. After another Charger time out, Schoor got a putaway to give North Posey its first lead of the game but a Charger tip tied the game at 23. But another Schoor kill, a Brown serve, and a School spike that was blocked out of bounds tied the match at two games all and the Vikings seemed to be back in business. But the Lady Chargers took control early in the fifth and deciding 15-point game by scoring the first eight points before North Posey could get on the board. The Lady Vikings fought

back but the hole was too big and the fifth game was too short. Pike Central went on to win the game 15-8, ironically on a Lady Viking service error for the final point. Against Pike Central, Schoor had 16 kills and Butler had 11. Robertson had four solo blocks and Brown had five digs. Shapker had 34 assists. Schoor had five aces. The Lady Vikings then hit the road for their next five contests. On Tuesday, the Lady Vikings defeated Reitz 24-26, 26-24, 21-25, 25-21, 15-13. Reitz— Kills: Waelbroeck 16. Assists: Ashworth 21.

The results from South Spencer were not available at press time and the Vikings will play at Southridge, Tecumseh, and at Mater Dei in their next three outings. In reserve volleyball this week, Coach Leah Stormont’s troops wented undefeated, beating Pike Central 25-11 and 25-22, Reitz 25-18, 15-25 and 15-9, and South Spence 25-17 and 2517.

COMMUNITY STATE BANK OF SOUTHWESTERN INDIANA 220 S. Lockwood, P.O. Box 280, Poseyville IN 47633 812-874-3641 • Fax 812-422-9884

September 17, 2012 Recently the Board of Directors of CSB State Bank voted to change the bank’s name to Community State Bank of Southwestern Indiana. CSB traces its roots back to about 1900 when a private loan company opened in Cynthiana. About five years later the Cynthiana Banking Company was founded and in 1925 CSB became an Indiana state chartered bank, the Cynthiana State Bank. In 1997, the bank’s name was changed to CSB State Bank due to a branch expansion. The Board of Directors feels that one further change is needed to better define who we are – a Community State Bank of Southwestern Indiana with four offices currently open in Posey County in Cynthiana, Poseyville, St. Philip, and St. Wendel. In addition, we are pleased to announce that a 5th office will soon open in Mt. Vernon at 201 West 4th Street. Our existing customers will not notice many changes due to this change: 1. Existing customer checks can continue to be used until they are gone and then the new checks that are ordered will be sent with Community State Bank of Southwestern Indiana on them. No customer account numbers will change. 2. Existing debit cards will continue to be used until their expiration date. Just prior to that a new card will be sent with Community State Bank of Southwestern Indiana on it. 3. Soon all bank statements will show the new name, Community State Bank of Southwestern Indiana on them. 4. All existing user ID and passwords can still be used to access the banks on – line banking website and the existing website address www.csbstatebank.com can still be used. A new website address will also be available in the near future that better reflects the bank’s new name. Both web addresses will direct you to the bank's website. We’re excited to be able to tell our customers and shareholders about this change. We will continue to provide the same excellent customer service and will continue to support all of the communities in which we are located. Please contact me if you have any questions by calling 812-874-3641 or you can email me at "sbennett@csbstatebank.com".

Sincerely,

Steven A. Bennett President

Jeff and Cindy Smotherman are all fired up for New Harmony

Natives of Murfreesboro, Tenn., Jeff and Cindy Smotherman had dreamed of retiring to a New England village and living above their own quaint antique store. After visiting a New Harmony festival to showcase items from their Murfreesboro antique shop, Jeff shared a new vision with Cindy. New Harmony cast its spell over the couple,

and by Kunstfest nine years ago, they had opened a quaint antique store on the ground floor of the historic firehouse and had contracted Roger Wade to renovate the upstairs for their living quarters. Upon opening their Firehouse Antiques, the Smothermans were all fired up for New Harmony, and they were soon committed

to keeping the love lights burning for the town. Even Cindy’s mother and stepfather, Linda and Rex Morris, caught the passion for New Harmony and relocated here. Within a month of moving to New Harmony, Jeff and Cindy had joined the New Harmony Business Associates. Both have served in leadership roles within the organization. On her own, Cindy served as marketing committee chair for several years and chaired both Christmas in New Harmony and the annual antique show. Today, she is serving her second term as president of the New Harmony Business Associates. Besides her work with the New Harmony Business Associates, Cindy has served on the Board of Directors for Hoosier Salon and has worked, along with Jeff, on the Plein Air Paint Out Committee for a number of years. For his solo runs, Jeff has chaired the committee for the annual antique show for a number of years after learning from Andrew Wilson. He served four years on the New Harmony School Board and was active in Harmonie Hundred as well as, along with Cindy, the New Harmony School Foundation. He was president of Booster Club for three terms (years). In addition, he is active in Harmony Associates and has served six years each on New Harmony’s Board of Zoning Appeals and Area Planning Commission. For fun, he has coached basketball and summer ball for the New Harmony Youth Association.

Jeff and Cindy own the buildings that house Utopia Salon and Creation Station as well as Firehouse Antiques. They received the first Jane B. Owen Award for Historic Preservation, presented annually, in 2005. Jeff and Cindy have been married 21 years and have been blessed with two beautiful daughters, Sarah and Andrea. Working toward becoming an intern at Walt Disney World for one college semester, Sarah is at the University of Kentucky on an academic scholarship; she has a double major in history and theatre and hopes to become an attorney. The high school homecoming queen graduated as the New Harmony School valedictorian in 2011. A senior at Mount Vernon High School, Andrea enjoys the Fine Arts Academy and playing high school softball. At her first Plein Air Paint Out, she won second place in her age group for a painting of Firehouse Antiques, which hangs proudly in the Smothermans’ home. Both Sarah and Andrea have benefited from National Honors Society. The Smothermans have all been nurtured at their Johnson United Methodist Church, where Sarah and Andrea have liked teaching Sunday School for preschool children. Everyone loves the Smothermans’ 11-year-old Jack Russell Terrier, Lucky, the mascot for Firehouse Antiques. Repeat visitors to the store remember Lucky and always ask for her by name. The Smothermans consider themselves lucky to have found her.
