Storms, floods put Posey in Emergency State By Dave Pearce Mike and Julie Butler and their daughters had no intentions of becoming a farm family. But when they woke up on Wednesday morning, there were parts of three grain bins within a hundred yards of their rural Posey County home. They had blown from the neighbor’s home, just as so many things had blown through Posey County the night before. “I’m usually not too much on things like this but they just kept saying over and over on television that it could be really bad,” Mike Butler said later in the week as a construction worker repaired the roof of his home. “It just kept getting louder so I got up and looked out the back door.” When I opened the door, all I heard was ‘swoosh,’” Butler continued. “There was a huge

amount of pressure on the door and it felt like the air was being sucked out of our house. I yelled into the house and told the girls to head to the basement.” Butler’s story was not unlike many Posey County residents regarding a stormy week, particularly on Tuesday evening. New Harmony Police Officer Scott Champlin said he was trying to help and was headed toward New Harmony on SR69 near the entrance to New Harmonie Park when his Chevy Suburban was moved on the roadway by the wind. The National Weather Service has not officially declared that a tornado hit Posey County but if tree and building damage is any indication, the results speak for themselves. Winds in excess of 90 miles per hour were reported by area television storm spotters.

Besides the area near Butlers, several farms around the Griffin area sustained damage. The Fifer Farm just east of Griffin and the Ziliak Farm just west of Griffin also sustained heavy damage, as did several trees and building in the Blue Grass Road area off Hoefling Road near Parker’s Settlement. Butler’s neighbor, Steve Herrmann, lost most of a barn as the parts of the red building were strewn along the roadway and into nearby fields. Another neighbor lost a shed that had housed an RV while yet another neighbor’s tree blew onto the garage, but saving the vehicles from total loss. Posey County Sheriff Greg Oeth has seen a lot in his three decades in public safety service, but

Dr. George and Peggy Rapp in their New Harmony home.

Rapps earn USI Honorary degrees By Pam Robinson Dr. George and Peggy (MacNary) Rapp of New Harmony have been distinguished by the University of Southern Indiana, or USI, to receive honorary degrees—Doctor of Science and Doctor of Laws, respectively—during commencement exercises on Sunday, May 8. In recognition, the Town of New Harmony has issued the proclamation establishing May 8 as George and Peggy Rapp Day. That evening, the Rapp-Owen Granary Auxiliary will host a reception to honor the Rapps from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Schnee-Ribeyre-Elliott House in New Harmony. Although no relation to Johann George Rapp, who founded a utopian society in New Harmony during the 19th century, Dr. George Rapp lives with his wife Peggy in a beautifully restored Rappite home that witnesses their love of the arts and education as well as historic preservation. It features numerous original paintings, often lighted as in a museum. Indeed, the Rapps are well-known in art circles throughout the state of Indiana for their support of artists and their work. George is chairman of the newly organized committee to help the American Impressionist Society centered in Indianapolis, the Rapps’ primary place of residence. In New Harmony, they founded the Hoosier Salon of New Harmony, a 501(c)3 nonprofit

art gallery. They help to maintain the New Harmony Gallery of Art headquarters as well. Their sponsorship along with the Indiana Plein Air Painters, or IPAPA, makes possible the annual Plein Air Paint Out each spring in New Harmony, now recognized as one of the finest in the nation. The Rapps recall the Paint Out started 13 years ago with 35 artists. It has grown now to draw over 150 professional artists in addition to nearly 50 student artists. Peggy supervises, trains and prepares materials for all volunteers who run the event—70 this year alone. The proceeds from the sale of art at the event support the Hoosier Salon, covering both its operating expenses and public programs. Historic New Harmony benefits from Peggy’s special touch as well, namely through the annual Hat Luncheon she co-founded to help support it. Moreover, USI benefits from the Rapps’ generous gifts and donations for programs and student scholarships. Likewise, Peggy was the catalyst to start the Garden Club in New Harmony. With her continued guidance, members have volunteered in an organized effort to beautify New Harmony. First, they provided flowers

By Dave Pearce The Posey County Commissioners appear to be throwing down the gauntlet to backers of a plan to change or bring another ambulance to Posey County. Near the conclusion of Tuesday morning’s Posey County Commissioner’s meeting, President Scott Moye indicated that the body will be sending out a letter the week. The letter will be asking those entities who currently house Posey County’s three ambulances to terminate the monthly rental agreement, effective June 1, 2011. “We are going to send this letter to the town boards and to Marrs Township,” Moye said at the conclusion of reading the letter’s contents. “By no means does that send a message as to what we will do. That information will be presented the first meeting of May (changed to Wednesday, May 4 because of the Primary Election on May 2).” A crowd is expected at the May 4 meeting slated for 9 a.m. at the Hovey House in Mount Vernon. A crowd estimated at over 300 was in attendance at the Posey County Community Center when results of an ambulance study were presented late last month. Moye said that the commissioners are searching for a solution to the current Emergency Management Services problem and is also looking for the most efficient way to spend taxpayer dollars. Moye indicated that while the amount would not be huge, it would save the county about $9,000 annually if all three entities agree to drop the rental charges. Earlier in the meeting, the commissioners voted to raise the pay of Posey County Animal Control officer by some $5000 annually. Moye explained that the raise would put Chuck Mobley’s pay more in line with other animal control officers in the area. He explained that the reason the pay is so much lower than others in the area is that the previous officer was already an employee of the city and this was additional money for him.

Phenomenal Woman Denning named PCCF director By Pam Robinson Point Township resident Johnna Benton Denning has been named the new director of the Posey County Community Foundation, or PCCF, a nonprofit public charity created by and for the people of Posey County. Denning started the transition to her new job yesterday. She will keep parttime office hours until Thursday, May 19, when she assumes full responsibilities. Until then, she is also wrapping up projects for Keep Evansville Beautiful, where she has served as development manager since last November. PCCF President Bill Gillenwater commented on the hiring process, a joint effort of the PCCF and the Community Foundation Alliance, and Denning’s winning credentials. “Johnna was one of 35 applicants for the position at the Posey County Community Foundation,” he said. “Of those, we narrowed it down to 10 individuals to look at their applications. Of those 10, we selected five to interview, and out of those Johnna was rated as the number one. She had the experience in grant making, fundraising, working on boards—she had actually worked on the board of the Posey County Community Foundation.

LaDuke’s ‘The Green Promise’ to be shown here By Pam Robinson Jeanne LaDuke Day will be officially proclaimed by Mayor John Tucker in Mount Vernon on Saturday, May 7, according to Posey County Historical Society President Becky Higgins, just as Mayor James M. Bennett did in June 1949. A Mount Vernon native, LaDuke starred in the 1949 movie, ”The Green Promise,” with actress Natalie Wood. The Alexandrian Public Library will be showing the black and white film on Thursday, May 5, at 5:30 p.m. and again on Saturday, May 7, at 2:00 p.m. The shows are free to the public. Free popcorn and soft drinks will be served as well. Moviegoers are encouraged to leave a donation for the Posey County Historical Society.

Denning, from Page 1A She had all the talents, respect for other individuals and the ability to do the job.” Denning holds a bachelor’s of social work with a minor in English from the University of Southern Indiana, or USI. In addition, she completed her master’s in public service administration at the University of Evansville, or UE. Just this past March 29, Denning was honored as one of 10 USI “Phenomenal Women” for her work in the community at large. She has applied her education at Evansville’s United Neighborhoods, the resource center for that city’s 35 neighborhood associations; Diehl Consulting; WNIN’s Ready to Learn program; and the USI Center for Social Justice, which she founded with USI professor Dr. Iris Phillips. She is president of Drug Free Communities in Posey County as well as a board member for the Tri-State Food Bank. An Evansville native, Denning moved to Mount Vernon in junior high and is a graduate of Mount Vernon High School. She met her husband Jeff during a summer internship at Warehouse Services, Inc., or WSI. Married 12 years this coming July, the couple has settled on a 100-year-old farm in Point Township with their two children, Hank (8) and Lily (6). Denning wants Posey County people to understand that PCCF funds benefit all of Posey County. She wants to help with unaddressed issues in healthcare for Posey County’s aging population as well as in recreation for Posey County’s youth. “I’m excited about being back in Posey County [for work] and getting started with the job,” she says.

Higgins said that LaDuke will be present at least for the Saturday showing of the movie, filmed when LaDuke was just 10 years old. Higgins noted that LaDuke was chosen from 12,000 4-H girls across the nation for her role. She was a 4-H girl’s 4-H girl, holding championships in 13 different fields and first place awards in 22 different activities as well as three state 4-H first place awards. A 1956 graduate of Mount Vernon High School, LaDuke went on to earn a master’s of science degree in mathematics from the University of New Hampshire. She is a professor of mathematics at DePaul University in Chicago. She is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Floyd E. LaDuke of Mount Vernon.

Tuesday night, he saw something he had never witnessed before. “I was directly behind a semi-tractor trailer that just lifted off (I-64) and was thrown right into the embankment,” Oeth said. The driver was not seriously injured, Oeth said, “but I’m sure he had the ride of his life.” Tuesday night, police officers were attending a training session at the Posey County Jail when the power went off about 9:40 p.m., causing police officers to join prisoners in being locked up. “When the power went out, the electric locks did what they were supposed to do,” Oeth said. On Sunday evening, Oeth reported that continued rains throughout the weekend combined with the weatherman’s promise of more rain throughout the coming days has further complicated the situation. The National Weather Service in Paducah reported Sunday evening that areas in its jurisdiction had received an additional three to five inches of rain on Sunday and was expecting another five to nine inches of rain on Monday and Monday evening. “This will be flooding like we have not seen in decades,” the announcer said, cautioning people about attempting to drive through standing water on roadways. Oeth also cautioned against attempting to get through water-covered roads in Posey County. “We had a meeting with deputies tonight and we will have a zero-tolerance policy on people who attempt to drive through water-

covered roads or past areas where signs have been posted,” Oeth said. “We already had to make one run about 6:30 this evening on Oliver Road where a vehicle became almost totally submerged in water. The man and his 12-year-old daughter had to crawl out the top of the car to be rescued.” Oeth said that according to the storm prediction center, the county is not expected to begin to see any relief at all until at least Friday, and that, of course is a day-by-day thing. The National Weather Services (NWS) says Posey County communities need to prepare for what could be catastrophic flooding. WFIE Channel 14’s Byron Douglas reports that there is much more rain in the forecast. Already nearly 10 inches of rainfall has occurred during the month of April. There will be a Flash Flood Watch until Tuesday afternoon. Severe thunderstorms along with torrential rainfall are likely through Wednesday. A state of emergency has been in Posey County due to the large number of roads closed because of the flooding. The Posey County Board of Commissioners activated the state of emergency at 7 a.m. today. The emergency will remain in effect until further notice. Posey County Commissioners and the Posey County Emergency Management Agency are asking motorists to only travel roads not affected by the flooding and to never drive through standing water. Several Posey County roads are closed and travel on the roads should not be attempted.

Funeral Planning ... Before the Need Arises

Richardson to be on hand for gallery exhibit By Pam Robinson International photographer Bruce Richardson and writer Shelley Richardson, his wife, will be present at the Women’s Institute and Gallery, 916 East Granary, in New Harmony on Saturday, May 7, from 4 to 7 p.m. The public is invited to attend the artists’ reception and silent auction to mark the opening of the exhibit featuring Bruce Richardson’s photography of tea gardens in India and Sri Lanka. The exhibit will remain open until July 31. Guests may purchase autographed copies of “Looking Deeply Into Tea,” featuring each of the 35 color photographs in the exhibit accompanied by meditations written by Shelley Richardson. A CD or DVD package featuring original musical compositions by Debbie Baker-Harman to accompany the photographs will be available as well. Bruce’s mesmerizing photographs from the tea gardens of India and Sri Lanka inspire us to look deeply into our cup that we might pause, pray and remember those who work diligently to bring us this ancient brew. His images are pure refreshment for the soul as Shelley’s meditations so beautifully reflect. Musicians by training, Bruce worked as a professional choral conductor, and Shelley played clarinet professionally until a few years ago. For 14 years, they delighted guests at the Elmwood Inn Tea Room with their traditional afternoon teas. The tea room gained an international reputation, and in 2000, it became the first American venue to be included in the prestigious “Guide to Best Tea Places,” published annually by The Guild of British Tea Rooms. After serving thousands of guests, the tea room closed on July 31, 2004, in order for the Richardsons to grow their expanding wholesale tea business and publishing house for tea media, Benjamin Press, at their Elmwood Inn residence in Perryville, Ky. As they write on their website,, “Elmwood Inn is committed to spreading the good news of tea to a thirsty world. We like to call it ‘a cup of serenity.’”

Bruce Richardson grew up on a farm near Elizabethtown, Ky. “The creative ability, the creative spark, is alive and used no matter what you’re doing, whether it’s music or art or photography—or tea. It all comes from the same source,” he stated in a telephone interview. His work as a tea connoisseur led to his involvement in the trade mission from the United States to Sri Lanka and India to better relationships between the United States Tea Council and the tea councils in those countries. “I was delighted to find such a rich environment to photograph,” he says. “I was particularly drawn to the faces of the women and children on the tea plantations in those areas of the world.” The Women’s Institute and Gallery will serve Elmwood Inn teas during the reception and silent auction on Saturday, May 7, and guests may purchase their favorite blend. One blend, Labyrinth, is made especially for New Harmony and brings together Indian herbs for healing in the Hindu tradition.

Rapps, from Page 1A and ground cover around signs for all buildings in Historic New Harmony. Then, they planted flowers in all public corner gardens. Every fall, they plant 2,000 daffodils all over town. In addition, they maintain flower beds at public facilities such as New Harmony Water Works and Thrall’s Opera House. They are proud of the springtime garden tours for visitors and dream of expanding the tour each year. For local education, the Rapps provide scholarships to New Harmony High School seniors. They helped to found the Posey County Community Foundation and created two donor-advised funds through that organization. The son of former New Harmony School Superintendent Earl Rapp, George met Peggy when they were students at Indiana University. George graduated from and later served as a clinical professor in orthopedics at the Indiana University School of medicine. Peggy completed a degree in elementary education. Both have met with tremendous success on their career paths. Peggy taught for a number of years in the Indianapolis public school system while George advanced rapidly as one of the nation’s leading orthopedic surgeons. As noted in the USI commencement program, he served as a volunteer for 18 years as chief of orthopedics at St. Vincent Hospital in Indianapolis and for 20 years as director of the scoliosis clinic at Riley Children’s Hospital. Also noted are his significant contributions to his profession through the design and development of artificial hips and advancements in the treatment of bone fractures. He is founder and a former chairman of the board of Sofamor Danek, the world’s largest manufacturer of spinal instrumentation. In addition, George and Peggy Rapp have built four operating rooms and surgery suites at Moi University in Eldoret, Kenya. Numerous awards have been presented to them for their professional and philanthropic work. Although the Rapps indeed appear larger than life, they treat guests with graciousness and approach life with a remarkable humility. “We’ve been blessed because of the company being successful and have been able to help philanthropic causes,” George says. Peggy appreciates the environs of New Harmony and all their local friendships. “There is a deeply spiritual quality to New Harmony.

It’s so peaceful and restful,” she says. “We absolutely adore the people who live here,” without whom, she adds, she could never carry out the events and project so close to her heart. Above all, the Rapps say they appreciate the blessing of family. Their two sons live in Indianapolis. John is an orthodontist while Jim is the president of Rapp Medical. They delight in their 13 grandchildren, ranging in age from 5 years to 23 years old.

Congratulations to Arthur and Margaret Meinschein of Mount Vernon as they celebrate their fiftieth wedding anniversary with a reception at the Multi Activity Center in Mount Vernon. Lillian Donner and Oliver “Fritz” Finnell were crowned king and queen of the Allison Healthcare Senior Prom held at the Wadesville VFW. Three Benedictine sistersSister Joanna Trainer, Sister Lorraine DeVault, and Sister Mary Dominic Frederick-of the Monastery Immaculate Conception in Ferdinand, Indiana will each be celebrating 50 years of religious professions and service. Mt. Zion General Baptist Church will be celebrating 125 years of Christian service later this summer. Janet Weisling, a kindergarten teacher at Hedges Central was selected as Posey County Teacher of the Year by the Evansville Area Reading Council.

Fifteen acres of Paul Beste’s farm will be the site of a research plot for Sudden Death Syndrome (SDS) in soybeans this summer. Researchers are hoping this test plot will give them in depth information about SDS. Residents of the area met in New Harmony to hear more about a proposed canal plan for the Wabash River. Many Posey County farmers are against the proposal which would turn the Wabash River into a canal that would handle barge traiffic from Terre Haute to the Ohio River. They fear the canal would damage farm land along the river. Mr. and Mrs. Alfred Davis of Poseyville would like to announce the approaching marriage of their daughter, Teresa to Randy Osborne of New Harmony. Mr. and Mrs. Harold Osborne of New Harmony would also like to announce the approaching marriage of their daughter, Becky to George Stewart of New Harmony.

Over 100 prospective first graders attended North Posey’s Pre-School Round Up last week. The boys and girls and their mothers had the opportunity to visit school, talk with the teachers, Mrs. Wade, the school nurse and Principal William J. Wilson, and enjoy cookies and orange juice in the lunch room. The Cynthiana Athletics baseball team will open its 1961 season with a game against the Mount Vernon Merchants. The game will be played in Wadesville due to the recent rains. The Double I League is made up of six teams, including Cynthiana, Mount Vernon, St. Wendel, St. Philip, Darmstadt, and Evansville West Side. The new Maumee General Baptist Church at Johnson will hold their dedication service on Sunday at 2 p.m. The building has a seating capacity of 250 and 20 Sunday School rooms.

Grilled Polish Sausage

• • • • • • • • •

INGREDIENTS 2-3 pounds kielbasa, Polish sausage or bratwurst 1 to 2 light-colored (not dark) beers 1 to 1 1/2 pints of sauerkraut 2 medium yellow onions, thickly sliced 2 Tbsp vegetable oil 1 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon celery seed 1 Tbsp. caraway seed Mustard

DIRECTIONS 1. Grill the sausages slowly over medium heat, allowing them to get well browned. Be patient; do not be tempted to grill the links over high heat, or they will break open and the juices and fat will drain into the grill (they may break open anyway, but they’ll break less if you cook them slowly). 2. While the sausages are cooking, put an aluminum grilling pan on a cooler part of the grill and pour in the beer. Stir in the celery and caraway seeds and salt. Bring to a simmer. (This may require covering the grill.) Once the sausages are browned add the sausages, the sauerkraut and sauerkraut juices to the pan. 3. Grill the onions. Paint the sliced onion with the vegetable oil and grill on high direct heat. If your grates are too wide and you think you will lose too much onion through the grates, you can either skip the grilling part and put the onions directly into the beer bath, or you can cut the onions in halves or quarters and grill them that way. Then slice them and add them to the beer. 4. Cover the grill and simmer (a low simmer, not a boil) for 30 minutes to 2 hours before serving. Serve with mustard on the side. Serves 4-6. Serve as is in a bowl or on a plate, or in a sandwich roll.

Artist Patricia Brammick to host week long art workshop Artists can join Artist-inResidence Patricia Brentano Bramnick for a week of drawing workshops in May. Patricia feels that drawing is the most crucial and demanding act of visual thought. It is the most immediate path into realities hidden in things. This four day workshop will focus on five important strategies used by artists since the Renaissance to translate their observations of the three dimensional world onto a two dimensional picture plane. A different strategy will be introduced each day. Students will work from direct observation.

Bramnick’s May 1 - July 24 Old Gallery exhibition, is entitled “We Don’t Own Nature, We’re A Part of It!” A nationally recognized conservationist whose work expresses the beauty and fragility of endangered and threatened bird species, she teaches painting and drawing at the Institute for Women’s Leadership at Rutgers and at New Jersey’s Kean University. She began her teaching career in 1974 in the Art Department at the University of Evansville, after receiving her Master of Fine Arts Degree from Tyler School of Art at Temple University.

Sermon of the Week: He’s Rocked Our World BY THE REV. MONICA GOULD OF THE FIRST PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH He is not here; He has risen, just as he said. This is Easter and the words we stand by as the Church are-Christ is risen; Christ is risen indeed! Without these words we would not be the church. The words of Paul in 1 Corinthians 15:4 ‘that he died for our sins, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures’ are our words today. We proclaim these words boldly on this day and every day that we gather. We are reminded in our baptism that we are buried with Christ and raised up with him to new life. The little children grow hearing these words until they can grasp the essence of this resurrection joy for themselves and announce to the world that they too can proclaim the new life given in Christ. Resurrection is new life, it is transformation from an old self to a new self. It is the ability to take hold of something impossible and to claim all its possibilities to work in one single person and in one small world. It is power and strength and might so strong that the earth itself shook in its wake. A crucified Lord is no longer in the tomb! As David Lose from the Lutheran seminary stated, ‘for Matthew it's not the destructive power of an earthquake that

matters but rather the fact that the natural world itself cannot help but witness to God's intervention in human affairs through Jesus.’ We have been witnesses to the devastation of an earthquake in Japan. We watched the power of its destruction on lives and an entire nation. Nature in its forces reminds us of things we cannot control. They remind us that our world is still broken and in need of repair. Where was God to prevent such tragedy? If an earthquake announced the new life in Christ what does an earthquake that takes life announce to us today? As I studied Matthews text this week I wondered if others who read this account of the resurrection will ask the same question. In the midst of our proclamation of the joy of the resurrection, death is still happening all around us and lives are still threatened across the globe and families are in turmoil. Many of you experienced the force of lightening, wind and rain in the past few days. You lost trees, shingles and power. The force of nature entered into your life. It was a frightening time. We ran to the basement and hoped that the storm would pass. Thoughts whirled in our head as the wind whirled outside of what things would look like when we emerged. Scripture tells us that the women went to look

at the tomb. When they arrived an angel sat on the stone that once was the obstacle to the entrance. He said to them, ‘Do not be afraid.’ It was a frightening time for the women and for all the followers of Jesus. What would things look like when they emerged from their hiding to go to the tomb? And Matthew tells us of two things beyond the earthquake announcement of the raising of the crucified Lord. The angel said, ‘Go quickly, he is going ahead of you, there you will see him.’ And the women hurried from the tomb, afraid yet filled with joy. Jesus is ahead of us, calling us to come, making the way for us to go, shining the path for us to follow. And if we go away from the tomb and toward where we are sent then we will see him. We will see him in his glory. We will see him as he allows us to touch him and know that he is real. ‘The good news is not that God’s in his heaven and all’s right with the world. The good news is that God is walking around on earth and all hell’s busting loose.’ This quote from Clarence Jordan proclaims God in Jesus Christ through the Holy Spirit is still a force on earth to be contended with. The forces that would attempt to annihilate, corrupt and alienate are met with forces that will lift up those from the rubble, will straighten the

crooked staff, and will embrace the immigrant and the outcast. Yes, in our world today we still have a God who can make the sun stand still for a day, who can use a star to guide wise men to a manger and who

can take the devastation of an earthquake to announce the resurrection of life. This is Easter and the words we stand by as the Church are-Christ is risen; Christ is risen indeed! Without these

words we would not be the church. Do not be afraid, go quickly, he is going ahead of you and you will see him. Raise the alleluia, shout the Amen. Glory halleluiah, Christ has rocked our world. Amen and Amen.

High school students get head start at VU High school students curious about college life will now be able to enroll in a two-week summer program called X-Mester, June 5-17, at Vincennes University. Designed for students who have completed their junior year of high school, X-Mester simulates the first year on a college campus, including living in a residence hall, participating in extra-curricular experiences, and enrolling in accelerated coursework. “What makes X-Mester truly unique is that it is high on both value and experience. Unlike most summer residential programs across the nation, X-Mester allows students to earn actual college credit at a fraction of

the cost that many colleges charge for a non-credit program,” said Carolyn Jones, assistant provost for Curriculum and Instruction. Jones says that one of the strengths of the program is that the X-Mester Fellowship program brings in successful collegians from leading universities to oversee the program. The applicant pool for this summer includes students from Princeton, John Hopkins, Harvard, Virginia, Yale, Purdue, Brown, Indiana, and Columbia. “The Fellows will teach, mentor, facilitate activities, and counsel students as part of the process of preparing XMester students for the rigor and expectations of higher education,” Jones said.

Accelerated courses offered during the two weeks include accounting, broadcasting, business, history, journalism, music, political science, psychology, technology, and theater. A sampling of extra-curricular activities includes bowling, dance, swimming, basketball, audio production, and X-games. “Our goal is to motivate students to complete a twoor three-credit-hour course so they can understand what it means to succeed at the college level. This will make them better prepared to succeed by boosting their confidence in their ability to achieve success,” Jones said. Detailed program information is available at

Applications must be postmarked no later than May 2, 2011, for consideration. The Elizabeth D. Baier Youth Spirit Award was created in September 2007 in honor of Elizabeth D. Baier’s 25th Anniversary as Executive Director of the United Way of Posey County. Michelle Hudson, chairperson of the committee charged with

the task of selecting an Award recipient, said “ The United Way of Posey County wanted to recognize Elizabeth for her service to the United Way, but we also wanted to honor her for her many years of leadership, community involvement, and volunteer services to Posey County. An award recognizing exemplary volunteerism by young people had been a dream of Elizabeth’s for many years, so the creation of the Youth Spirit Award in her name seemed to be the perfect way to honor her.” Funding for the Award was obtained entirely through private donations. An applicant for the Award

Register now for June ACT Test Registration is now open for the June 11, 2011 ACT achievement test. Students who wish to take the college admission and placement exam must register before May 6, 2011. The ACT is a curriculumbased achievement exam. It tests what students have actually learned in school, not their aptitude for learning. The ACT also measures what students need to know to be ready for first year creditbearing college courses based on ACT College Readiness Standards™. Every student’s results can be tied directly to these consistent standards. The ACT has four sections—English, mathematics, reading and science— and takes about three hours to complete. Students who take the ACT Plus Writing complete an optional writing test that requires an additional 30 minutes. Unlike other exams, students are not penalized for guessing or answering all the questions on each test section. In fact, it is beneficial for test takers to answer all questions within the time allowed. During registration, students may select up to four universities to receive their score reports. ACT scores are accepted by all four-year colleges and universities across the United States. ACT re-

ports scores only when requested to do so by the student. Additional score reports are available for a small fee. All students complete a detailed inventory of questions during ACT registration. Each test taker receives an ACT score report that includes a wide variety of information to assist with high school course selection, college readiness, career planning, and college admissions. The cost for the ACT test without writing is $33. When combined with the optional ACT Writing Test, the total cost is $48. Students who qualify may apply for a fee waiver through their high school counselor. The ACT website, www., has helpful information, free sample items, and options to order inexpensive test prep materials to assist test takers get ready for the exam. However, the best preparation is to take rigorous core courses in school, study hard, and learn the academic skills needed in college. Most students register online at Students may also pick up registration forms from their high school counseling offices. Late registration is available until May 20, 2011 for an additional $21 fee.

Agencies taking back unwanted prescription drugs On April 29 and April 30 the Posey County Sheriff’s Office, the Mount Vernon Police, the Posey County Solid Waste District, the Indiana State Police, and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) will give the public another opportunity to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs. Bring your medications for disposal. The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked. On Friday, April 29 the Mount Vernon Police Department will be at the Posey County Solid Waste District’s office from 1 p.m. until 4 p.m.

to accept unwanted pills. On Saturday, pills can be taken to the Posey County Sheriff’s Office or the Poseyville Police Department from 9 a.m. until noon. Unwanted medicines can also be taken to the Indiana State Police Post located on Hwy. 41 N just south of I64 from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m., Saturday, April 30. Last September, Americans turned in 242,000 pounds— 121 tons—of prescription drugs at nearly 4,100 sites operated by the DEA and more than 3,000 state and local law enforcement partners, including [local agency]. This initiative addresses a vital public safety and public health issue. Medicines that

languish in home cabinets are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse, and abuse. Rates of prescription drug abuse in the U.S. are alarmingly high, as are the number of accidental poisonings and overdoses due to these drugs. Studies show that a majority of abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, including from the home medicine cabinet. In addition, Americans are now advised that their usual methods for disposing of unused medicines—flushing them down the toilet or throwing them in the trash—both pose potential safety and health hazards. Four days after last fall’s

event, Congress passed the Secure and Responsible Drug Disposal Act of 2010, which amends the Controlled Substances Act to allow an “ultimate user” of controlled substance medications to dispose of them by delivering them to entities authorized by the Attorney General to accept them. The Act also allows the Attorney General to authorize long term care facilities to dispose of their residents’ controlled substances in certain instances. DEA has begun drafting regulations to implement the Act.

consumers to take actions that will improve their longterm financial outcomes, including seeking out the essential financial products so many Americans lack,” said Timothy Flacke, D2D’s Executive Director. “D2D’s mission of increasing families’ saving rates mirrors the mission and goals of the Bank On model, which ONB has taken the lead in launching in a dozen communities throughout our footprint,” explained Patty Avery, CRA Community Outreach Officer. “The key to financial success is understanding how the way you spend, save and take on debt combine to create your future, and these online games offer a creative and fun way to

provide that information to all of our communities.” About Old National Old National Bancorp is the largest financial services holding company headquartered in Indiana and, with $7.3 billion in assets, ranks among the top 100 banking companies in the United States.

My friend Bruce has a way of softening the blow, even the ultimate Each week, I try to learn at least one thing that will make me a better person. Some weeks, I succeed and it seems like some weeks, I don’t. Sitting in church on Sun- TRUTH... day, I could not help but no- STRANGER tice how many people in our THAN little area are suffering from FICTION the ravages of cancer. This BY DAVE terrible disease has taken so PEARCE many prematurely, already, and threatens others. As I read down the list and so many names that I know personally and recognized, I could not help but be moved and remember a phone call I received earlier this week. No matter what your occupation, you have the capacity to make friends. I enjoy people and I enjoy friends. One morning this week, before I left to go to Henderson to work, I received a phone call from a friend that I met. He was buying a car from me shortly after I began selling vehicles in Henderson going on eight years ago. Bruce and his family have become not only good customers but also good friends. There

have been times when he has just stopped in to chat or has just called to chat. We seem to have a lot in common (he is also in sales) and it always seems to be a contest to see who can get a word in edgewise when we get on the phone. Bruce was his usual jovial self when I answered the phone. We joked around for a little while and I asked him how he was doing. You see, this healthy friend I met several years ago has been fighting cancer now for about four years. But to talk to him, you would never know it. We talked for a while and he indicated that he was no longer cancer-free. He is currently treating a lump in his neck with chemotherapy and despite his attempt at optimism, I couldn’t help but notice a little different tone in his voice this time. He’s endured multiple surgeries over the past few years as well as several rounds of radiation therapy and chemotherapy. I know that at times, it has taken so much out of him

yet he always seems to find a way to smile and look for the good in life. He proceeded to tell me a story about a recent outing. He said that his chemotherapy doctor had asked him if he would like to eat lunch together sometime. Thinking that “sometime” could be anytime in the future, of course Bruce agreed. But the doctor wanted to be more specific so he tied Bruce down to a particular day. Bruce checked his schedule and agreed to meet the doctor for lunch in Newburgh. Little did Bruce know that his doctor had called Bruce’s wife Margaret and asked her to put Bruce’s golf clubs in the trunk of his car early that morning. So when they met for lunch, the doctor got into the car with Bruce and asked him to drive them to the “restaurant.” Not knowing Newburgh very well, the doctor instructed Bruce to head northeast of town and before he knew it, they were at the gates of Victoria National Golf Course. Bruce figured he was going to get a special treat, a meal in the restaurant. But when they got out of the car, the doctor asked Bruce if he felt like playing golf. Inquisitively, Bruce replied that he did not have his clubs. But the doctor insisted that Bruce check the trunk of his car just to be sure. Sure enough, everything Bruce needed to play the course he had dreamed of playing was there in the trunk of his car. “Why are you doing this,” Bruce asked, surprised. “I can’t tell you, not until after we have teed off on the first hole,” the doctor answered. So, finally Bruce agreed to go ahead and start the round of golf as the suspense seemed to be getting the best of him. Finally, after hitting a great tee shot off the No. 1 tee box, Bruce demanded an explanation. “You know,” the doctor began to explain, “most of the time when people have finished

their chemotherapy, I am the last person they want to see and the place where the chemo is administered is the last place they want to be. But you were different. After your chemo was finished, you came back. You checked on friends you had made during your time in the hospital. There was even an 85-year-old woman that you came back to check on.” As I watched, I learned that if I had told you I was taking you to play Victoria National, you would not have let me do it, would you?” the doctor asked. Bruce said he had to admit that he probably would not have agreed to allow the doctor to spend the money on him had he known what the doctor had planned. Then as the conversation proceeded, Bruce admitted to me that he was too weak to play all the holes. There were times when he was just too tired but he enjoyed seeing the course and playing the holes he was able to play. As I thought about it, this incident and golf are a little like life. Sometimes conditions are good but sometimes they aren’t. Sometimes we just have to play the holes we are able to play and just be glad we are able to see the course and enjoy the sunshine and the company. And sometimes, we just have to be content as we enjoy watching others play the course. As he prepared to hang up, with no letdown in his voice, Bruce assured me that I was on the list of people to be called “when something happens.” “I’m going to fight it with everything I have until the last breath,” Bruce said with resolve. “Then when I have done all I can, I am going to go home.” But I knew this was Bruce’s way of telling me that I could probably expect a phone call from Margaret in the not-so-distant future. But true to form, he found a way to make it positive and a way to make me smile as he told the story. Oh, the lessons we could all take from Bruce.

Letters to the Editor State Representative Wendy McNamra... Building relationships, crafting legislation Two of my top priorities this legislative session were to build relationships that would improve Southwest Indiana and to author, sponsor and amend bills that are needed for all Hoosiers. This has ranged from crafting legislation to help our schools stretch their dollars to making the Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) aware of our roadway needs. Building and developing a strong working relationship with INDOT has been a top priority since our roads are in desperate need of attention. I have advocated for the fixing of our roads such as in Posey County, a safer route for trucks to turn west out of the Port, the "truck ruts" that line Highway 62 in Mount Vernon and many other issues that have been brought to my attention by constituents. Last week, I led Senate Bill 465 through the House legislative process. The bill streamlines the Department of Child Services (DCS) and brings clarity to DCS programs. A large portion of this bill removes conflict in language to align Indiana with federal guidelines, other portions amend some definitions. A key section of this bill focuses on do-

mestic violence. This bill will clarify what the fatality review team can assess when investigating the suicide of a victim of domestic violence. The bill also changes the foster care license capacity from 8 to 5, but does give exception to foster families who care for siblings. Another significant aspect of this bill pertains to the interviewing of children in an alleged case of domestic violence. Currently DCS needs the permission of the child’s parent or guardian to have access to interview the child. This is an apparent conflict of interest when the parent or guardian could be the perpetrator. This was a bipartisan bill that passed out of the Senate with a vote of 49-1, out of the Committee for Family, Children and Human Affairs with a vote of 9-0 and out of the House with a vote of 85-13. The passage of this bill will permit DCS to better facilitate services to children and families. I came to the Statehouse with the intention of sticking to my beliefs and to represent my constituents. I am resolute on continuing to build relationships that will redirect focus on Southwest Indiana and on crafting legislation that serves Hoosier families.

Gavel Gamut’s “Learning by Doing” On May 2, 2011, in the courtroom of the Posey Circuit Court, students from Posey County’s three high schools will learn about America’s legal system by putting on a Mock Trial. This educational experience will begin at 9 a.m. and is open to the public. The schools, which en- GAVEL courage their students to GAMUT take a day from their busy schedules, do so because for BY JUDGE twenty-six years students JIM REDWINE have learned a great deal by their hands-on participation. This certainly makes sense to me. Other than a general feeling of ennui, what I remember most from law school are the mock trials from my freshman criminal law class and the moot court during my senior trial skills seminar. While the years in between these experiences were less educating than debilitating, those two “adult education” experiences taught me a great deal. When I became a judge, I drew upon those hands-on events more than any of my core courses. Of course, my adult education received from ten years of practicing law was my safest refuge when I first took the Bench. Now I can rely upon an additional thirty years of adult education from the courtroom. It often turns out I am in need of more, but now, at least, I usually can sense my deficiency before total disaster results. Adult education stresses participation and immediate use of what is learned. The goal is to learn information and techniques one week in class that can be used the next week in life. Adult learning is best educed, not imparted. That is, instead of information

raining down on the students’ heads from Olympus, it is drawn forth from the students via active participation and observation. Nothing teaches as doing does. Those of us who spent up to twenty years in class only to find on the job training was where we are truly educated appreciate the principles of adult education. In fact, many suggest adult education techniques should be simply education techniques: Class participation, discussion and role playing are what make lectures dynamic, information usable and learning indelible. It is not that theory is unimportant. It is just that it has no immediate efficacy. As the old adage, often attributed to Abraham Lincoln, goes, “Study and prepare and when opportunity arises you will be ready.” However, another equally valid adage is, “You have to get some dirt on your hands to do the job.” In other words, theory is for preparation but doing is for application. This year’s Law Day Mock Trial, i.e. the learning by doing experience, will begin with remarks by Posey County Bar Association President Donald Baier and Posey Superior Court Judge Brent Almon, both of whom graduated from Mount Vernon High School. Posey County’s Bar Association contains attorneys from each of our three high schools. Then Indiana Supreme Court Justice Frank Sullivan will speak to the students about our legal system and the significance of Law Day. If you have the time, the celebration and the learning by doing exercise will begin at 9 a.m. You are welcome to attend.

Should Planning bodies reconsider decision? On April 14, 2011 Posey County Zoning board approved the zoning appeal B3 for the land located at the corner Boberg Road and Harmony Way. My wife could not attend the meeting since she had to work. I could not attend since I had a business dinner with 20 health professionals from the area that took months to arrange. I was not too concerned about the zoning since I felt fairly confident our local leaders would look at the basic premise and evidence and come to the obvious conclusion to reject the B3 zoning. B3 zoning allows the O’Risky Excavating to build just about anything they want. The O’Rrisky’s propose to build a lot to store all their heavy equipment smack dab in the middle of an area that is virtually all residential. There is a Coffee Company that has a special use permit which none of us opposed since it generated no traffic. Then there is Kokies which has been a neighborhood icon for decades without problems. We had 89 signatures of area residents who oppose this zoning. There were 15 local residents that broke away from their busy lives to personally attend this zoning meeting. There were many more like myself who have to work their daily schedules. Given all that surely the zoning board would surely reject this rezoning. Apparently, the zoning board had a Charlie Sheen moment. As I understand it Mr. O’Risky has twice wasted 30 minutes explaining all he has done for the community in these zoning meetings. I would suggest in future meetings to play fair and skip all this fluff and discuss the issue at hand on the facts. There are plenty of residents in the area whose service to this country and community that have done as much or more than Mr. O’Risky. There were two character witnesses that I respect, that have no skin in this game. Play in your own neighborhood! The parcel in question until recently consisted of a farm house and rolling pasture with farm animals. The reason my wife and our family moved into this rural and residential area was to escape these commercial zonings in Vanderburgh County. There are areas of concern





where the county has not enforced basic zoning around us, but we see no reason to make our lives infinitely worse by allowing O’Risky Excavation to wreak havoc in our quiet neighborhood. In fact the county would do the whole neighborhood a great service by enforcing the code laws on all residential and rental properties around us. First of all residents are thankful the county had Rudolph repave the road last year. Did the county have the foresight to construct this road to the rigorous standards needed to withstand this large heavy equipment? I really doubt three expensive inches of pavement is anywhere near the requirements for use for such heavy industrial equipment, plus Boberg is not a truck route. The previous damage to the road came from sparse usage by snow removal trucks, farm equipment, and heavy utility equipment. Even if Boberg Rd. was constructed to handle the heavy equipment there is the greater issue of public safety. Many school children ride the bus and drive to school using Boberg. There are many pedestrians and bicycles that use Boberg Rd. The speed limit on Boberg is posted 20 miles per hour. Ther is no way all this heavy equipment should ever be allowed on one square inch of Boberg Road.T This is like locating a construction road through a school yard. When we first moved out here my wife sideswiped a car on the very narrow bridge located on Boberg Road that the Orisky’s plan to use for heavy equipment. The other car was loaded with sev-

eral neighbor teenagers. The Posey County Sheriff determined neither was at fault since the bridge is not designed for two cars. Plus the sheriff said the bridge is built at a strange angle for safety. We plan on checking with the county to determine the weight limit for this bridge since there seems to be different stories being floated around. I invite the planning board to do likewise. Plus it might be in the best interest of the residents that the county verifies all the details of this proposal with a nonpartisan expert. Also, there are concerns about runoff and drainage problems. Vamderburgh County had to pay $3 million to fix Bayou Creek after Kight developed the Red Bank Rd. development. Kight got off with a $500,000 fine. This needs to be in writing, just because they are an excavating company there is no guaranteed compliance. At the very least Mr. O’Risky should have had the vision and secured egress and regress onto Harmony Way. There is no way that property can be accessed safely using Boberg Rd. When I first heard about this proposal I thought the only way it would possibly work would by allowing access off Harmony Way using Hwy 66. Vanderburgh County would not like O’Risky using Harmony Way as a heavy equipment route. The Planning Board would be Community Insensitive to approve this ludicrous proposal. Boberg Rd. is not a truck route! The next meeting needs to be on a Saturday morning. David Musgrave Boberg Road Resident

Love for area’s youth keeps Bells involvement priority Dave and Lauren Bell of Mount Vernon have dedicated their lives to education and athletics in the Metropolitan School District, or MSD, of Mount Vernon, helping to shape it into one of the best school districts in the area. Coach Bell has spent 33 of his 35 years teaching science and social studies here, first at the high school, now at the junior high. During his coaching career, he has worked with student athletes in a variety of sports. For 22 years, he was head baseball coach. He has also served as assistant coach for football and basketball and head girls’ basketball coach as well as the coach for junior high football and 6th grade basketball. Now, he coaches girls’ golf. For 11 years of her 15-year teaching career, Lauren has served the MSD of Mount Vernon. She taught English for 10 years at the junior high before moving to the high school for the current academic year. “God’s leading me in a different direction now,� she says, confessing she will sorely miss her students when she resigns at the end of this academic year. She wants to focus her at-

tention now on her three daughters—Alex (14), Berkeley (8) and Briley (7)—and help them with their accomplishments. An honor student, Alex is a member of Mount Vernon Junior High School Student Council and cheerleading squad. She will also be a Mount Vernon High School cheerleader next year. Berkeley is an honor student as well; she loves reading and playing soccer and basketball. Briley keeps up with her sisters as an honor student in her own rite. An animal lover, Briley has her own horse and plays soccer and basketball. In addition, Lauren plans to spend more time volunteering, especially at the Evansville Christian Life Center. She loves to cook, bake and decorate as well. Both Dave and Lauren enjoy working with young people. In addition to their students and young family, the Bells support a child in a Myanmar orphanage, the second child they will have sponsored until she reaches age 18. Dave has two grown children, Ashli and Jason. Jason and his wife Jessie are themselves the parents of two young children, a special source of

delight for Dave. Six-yearold Cora is in training to be an angler, hunter and athlete like her grandpa and dad. Her baby brother Rawlings (1 ½) will, no doubt, join her in the great outdoors as soon as his footing becomes sure. It comes as no surprise to

learn Dave is a member of Ducks Unlimited, a conservation group that works to protect ducks and wetlands. He and Lauren enjoy golfing together also. Although their commitment to education has limited their involvement in commu-

nity organizations, the Bells are never too busy to listen to a friend or to help a friend in need. Lauren is known for providing hot meals to friends in crisis while Dave is always close by the phone in case a friend needs help in an emergency, such as getting a ve-

hicle pulled out of the snow. He still enjoys a morning cup of coffee with his 85-year-old mother Naomi every day before school starts. The Bells have been married for five years and have made a second home at One Life Church in Henderson.

North Posey outlasts Mater Dei in 11-inning thriller By Dave Pearce Every strikeout that Shelley Schmitt gets for the remainder of this season is just one more on top of the career record she set last week. And although Schmitt likes the opportunity to get strikeouts, perhaps she got too many opportunities on Monday evening at North Posey High School as Schmitt and her Viking teammates played 11 tough innings before putting away a stubborn Mater Dei team 3-2. The team also defeated Central and Princeton but lost an important Pocket Athletic Conference battle 2-1 against Tecumseh on the night after the varsity team played until almost 9:30 against Mater Dei. Although this was the longest game North Posey has played since he has been at the helm (a little over four hours), Viking skipper Gary Gentil wasn’t really surprised by the type of game the two teams played. “It was a very good game,” Gentil said. “We knew going in that it was pretty much a dead even match-up. Both teams have good pitchers and both teams have good hitters and judging from the past, we are mirror images of each other. It was a pretty intense game for all 11 innings” The Vikings got on the scoreboard in the bottom of the third inning with a pair of runs before the Wildcats were able to get out of the jam. They wasted no time putting the Vikings into the same type of jam in the top of the fourth inning and suddenly, the score was tied at two. And it seemed like forever they were tied at two. Neither team was without its opportunities but time after time, the defense would come up with the big play or the

New Harmony still learning to finish, manages to beat Bosse By Steve Joos The New Harmony softball team is playing well this season and at 4-4 on the season, the Lady Rappites are at about the spot coach Jeff Moore thought they’d be. The inability to put away the opposition was a problem for the Lady Rappites in both of their games last week, a 6-5 loss in eight innings at Cisne and a 9-8 win over visiting Bosse Thursday. “We played really good,” Moore said. “We played over at Cisne, we just didn’t know how to finish that game.” Moore made what he called “a coaching blunder” which cost New Harmony a couple of runs earlier in the game at Cisne. He took responsibility for that and told his team it would never happen again. The Lady Rappites outhit the Lady Fightin’ Lions 11-8 and Morgan Matthews pitched a strong game, but five mental miscues cost New Harmony as the Illinoisans came back to tie things up in the later stages of the game and pull it out in the eighth. On Thursday, the Lady Rappites hit the ball well and

Mother Nature keeping New Harmony from gaining wins, experience The New Harmony baseball team played one game last week and got rained on, for the most part. The Rappites dropped an 11-2 decision at Tecumseh last week in the first game of a scheduled doubleheader, but the second game of that twinbill was rained out, as was a Saturday twinbill with Barr-Reeve. “We lead for most of the game, but errors got to us in the last inning,” coach Jim Little said. Andrew McDaniel pitched most of the game for put Rappites, who only trailed 3-2 heading into the last inning. McDaniel also scored the first run of the game when he walked and later came around on a single by Kyle Whitmore. New Harmony led 1-0 when the second game was called short of the official five innings.

Rappites, from Page B1 fensively to the tune of five errors, but this time the game was in New Harmony. “We’ve got to stop that (the blunders),� Moore said. “We made five errors again (against Bosse) and they almost got us again, but thank goodness we were the home team and we got the last at-bat and we scored a run.� Little-used reserve Abby Deckard manufactured the winning run for New Harmony against the Lady Bulldogs. Pinch-hitting in the last of the seventh, Deckard drew a walk, moved to second on a passed ball, stole third and scored the winning run on another passed ball. “We’re trying to get everyone in,� Moore explained. “But it’s been difficult since we’re 4-4 and we should be 7-1. We’ve been competitive. Except for the Mount Vernon game, we’ve been in every game we’ve played and that’s all you can ask.� The Lady Rappites are hitting the ball up and down the lineup, the coach explained, adding that Madison Worman is hitting .454 and Matthews is hitting .451 in addition to halving her earned-run average from 14.00 to 7.00 despite Tuesday’s loss in Cisne. “We’ve got quite a few girls hitting over .350,� the coach said. “We’re hitting the ball. A little late... Offense isn’t the problem, We have to shore up New Harmony’s Brittany Rister slides into home plate on a passed ball just as the our defense a little bit. You don’t make errors, catcher makes the throw to the pitcher covering home plate. Photo by Dave Pearce you don’t give a team four or five extra outs.

You give a team four or five extra outs, that’s more work for the pitcher.� If they Lady Rappites can cut back on their errors, they should be competitive in the Sectional, according to the coach. The weather hasn’t been that much of a problem, although Moore attributed three of New Harmony’s five errors at Cisne to wet, muddy conditions as the game was played in a light rain. There is some inexperience that has leads to some of the mistakes and that will improve, the coach said. He also praised two girls who are playing in the outfield for the first time, Holly Walden (who’s been battling injuries) and Stacy Hempfling, a transfer from Mount Vernon. “We’re right now where we thought we’d be,� Moore said. “We thought we could be 4-4 or a little better and we’ve been competitive, like we though we’d be. We’ve just got to learn how the finish. That’s it.� Those errors will haunt a team and the Lady Rappites have committed about three or four miscues per game, Moore said. Owen and Kendall Morris had multiple hits against Bosse, while Worman was on base a number of times. Now, they just have to go out and get the opposition one game at a time—and finish things off.

Wildcats continue to execute in win over Titans, run record to 6-2

By Steve Joos The bunt barely dropped on the grass and rolled slowly in front of home plate at the Mount Vernon High School baseball field before Drake McNamara came steaming in to score the winning run in the Wildcats’ 8-7 victory over the visiting Gibson Southern Titans on Thursday. That squeeze play almost seemed like a standup steal of home, as the Cats watched an early 5-1 lead get away only to come back with two runs in the bottom of the seventh for their third win of the week, following victories over Bosse and Boonville. Friday’s game at Vincennes was rained out and moved to May 6. Must have been a nip-and-tuck battle all the way through, since the Titans had just taken a 7-6 lead in the top of the inning, right coach Paul Quinzer? “It wasn’t back and forth,� Quinzer said. “Hank Dausmann started the game and he had basically for five innings, a one-run ball game. He was keeping them off-balance. We got a run and them some more, we were up 3-1 and then Aaron Roberts hit a home run and we were up 5-1.� Roberts smacked a two-run shot in the bottom of the fifth to put the Wildcats in front by four runs, but Dausmann then came up with some soreness in his pitching arm before going out for the top of the sixth. Quinzer was forced to go with a senior (Jason Stemple), who struggled in the early going. A couple of singles, a pair of walks and a dropped fly ball resulted in three runs, which combined with two other runs turned Senior Aaron Choate of Mount Vernon lays down the perfect bunt, catching the the 5-1 Mount Vernon advantage into a 6-5 Gibson Southern lead. Bosse Bulldogs off guard, and therefore loading the bases, during the fourth inning of The Cats managed to tie the game in the the game at the Bosse home field on Tuesday. Photo by Terri Koch bottom of the sixth, but the Titans reclaimed the lead in the top of the seventh, setting the stage for some fireworks in the home half of the game. River VanZant drew a walk to lead off the Mount Vernon seventh and took second on a wild pitch. McNamara followed with a walk and promptly stole second, putting two runners in scoring position with nobody out. Stemple fanned, but Austin Doerflein lined a single to left, knotting things up at 7-7. Then Choate plinked it in front of the

plate with McNamara all but across the plate. Quinzer explained that the Gibson Southern pitcher was in his windup before getting the ball to the plate and McNamara could have stolen home with a slide, praising his teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all around execution on that play. The coach was also happy with the way his team played during the entire contest. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was really happy about Dausmann and the way he threw the ball,â&#x20AC;? Quinzer said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Roberts is swinging the bat real well. (Troy Paris) is still hot, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hitting over .600 and Aaron Choate is doing a heck of a nice job behind the plate and trying to keep the leadership going for us.â&#x20AC;? The game was indicative of the way Mount Vernon has been playing all season, according to Quinzer, who cited big comebacks against Memorial, Reitz and New Haven in the course of their 6-2 start. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t put their cleats up and their gloves up until the game is over,â&#x20AC;? the coach said. Roberts also doubled in addition to his opposite-field home run in the fifth. Paris and VanZant each tripled, while Bo Harris doubled. The Wildcats were pounding the ball earlier in the week as they rolled to a fiveinning 14-3 win over visiting Boonville. The Cats pounded out 15 hits, while Caleb Hames tossed a four-hitter to get the Big Eight Conference win. Robertsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; two-run homer highlighted a five-run second inning for the Cats, who then scored another seven tallies in the bottom of the third. On Tuesday night, Ross Canada came in and shut down Bosse on four hits as the Cats posted a 10-2 victory on the road. The sophomore pitched a four-hitter against the Bulldogs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m happy with the way things are going,â&#x20AC;? Quinzer said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The rain has helped us, but I wonder how itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be when we start playing four or five games in a week.â&#x20AC;? The tasks of maintaining things in the face of a busy schedule got a little busier after Friday. The Cats took a 6-2 record into Mondayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home game against Mater Dei.

Viking softball, from Page B1 time, the defense would come up with the big play or the pitcher would make a great pitch to get out of troubleâ&#x20AC;Śuntil the bottom of the 11th inning. Kelsey Everley led off the inning with a double but it was beginning to look like she might be left on base, as several Viking hitters were in the long contest. Then with two out and a 2-2 count, junior catcher Morgan Stierley, after fouling off a couple of pitches, sent a shot down the left-field line and Everley was able to come around and score to end the game. Stierley enjoyed similar success in a basketball game earlier this season at Harrison when the Warriors came back to send the game into overtime. Stierley calmly sunk four free throws in the overtime period to help the Vikings overcome the Warriors in Evansville. But this was a different game, a different sport, and a different location. However, the outcome was the same. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She has done a very good job for us this year,â&#x20AC;? Gentil said of Stierley. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And over the last few games, Lisa Garris has really come on both offensively and defensively and has had some great hits and made some outstanding defensive plays for us.â&#x20AC;? The Vikings had little trouble with Princeton, despite the Tigersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; lofty record. The Lady Tigers are enjoying another good season but the Vikings had all the answers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Shelley pitches a really solid game for us against Princeton and her defense played extremely well behind her,â&#x20AC;? Gentil said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Shelley had 12 strikeouts for us and Deana Lindauer, Megan Redman, and Morgan (Stierley) had some crucial defensive plays for us.â&#x20AC;? Against Central, the Vikings put a run on

the board in the first inning and added two more in the third before Central picked up one in the bottom of the sixth. The Vikings added two insurance runs in the top of the seventh to round out the scoring. The Vikings were errorless while taking advantage of three errors on the Lady Bears. North Posey also had seven hits to only three for the Lady Bears. Lisa Garris went 3-for-4 with a pair of RBIs to help lead the team. Kendyl Ahrens helped chip in, nailing a sacrifice fly to put up an insurance run. Jourdan Wassmer and Kelsey Everly have also been swinging a hot bat, according to their coach. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Central has beaten some good teams and had played some good teams really close,â&#x20AC;? Gentil said of the inconsistent Bears. But the heartbreak of the week came on Friday when the Lady Vikings were unable to answer the bell following the long night against Mater Dei. They committed two errors and could not string together enough offense to save the day as the Tecumseh Braves handed the Vikings their second conference loss of the season, 2-1. But while the Vikings took 3-of-4 games on the week and moved to 7-5 on the season, the second PAC loss gives the Vikings an opportunity to look for improvement each game as they prepare for one of the toughest sectionals in the state at Forest Park. The Vikings are 3-2 in the conference while nearby Gibson Southern stands undefeated. However, outside the conference this week the picture became almost as muddy as the playing field as South Spencer, who the Vikings defeated, handed powerhouse Boonville a loss and Henderson County, who the Vikings have also beaten, took it to the Lady Titans of Gibson Southern.

Vikings turn up the heat, take out Bosse and Princeton By Dave Pearce Just when it looked like the North Posey baseball Vikings were just about down, first-year Viking Coach Scott Reid made a couple of changes. The end result was that his team came alive and won both games they were able to play this week. Although weather permitted only the two games, the Vikings were impressive in knocking off Bosse 4-3 early in the week before throttling

Princeton 9-2 later in the week at North Posey High School. Reid indicated that in pulling back to .500 with a 5-5 record, his team was doing nothing all that different than they had been doing. Just a couple of timely hits and he knows his team could be sporting a much better record than 5-5. Despite the 5-5 overall record, with the bats not beginning to click, the Vikings still have the

meat of the Pocket Athletic Conference schedule to play and they currently stand 2-1 in that category. “This team can play with anybody and they are good enough to beat anybody,” Reid said of his Vikings. “In the five games that we lost, just a couple of hits here and there with runners in scoring position and we could have three or four more wins than we have.” Fundamentally, Reid believes his team is as solid as any. “We continue to pitch and defend very well,” Reid said following the win over Princeton. “Shane Neumann threw a great game tonight. I still continue to marvel at what he has been able to do, considering what he has been through in the past couple of years.” Neumann was relieved in late innings first by Cooper Martin, who had a little trouble finding the strike zone, and later by sophomore Colton Martin. Reid indicated he would like to see his team come out with some bounce in their step and enjoy playing the game and the fact that they “get” to play baseball. Reid said he felt that Alec Werry and Colton Motz helped provide some of that spiritual leadership in the game against Princeton. “Alec got his first varsity start and he has been swinging the bat so well at the reserve level and I thought he looked really good tonight even though he struck out once,” Reid said. “The kid has some tools and he is going to be a good player over the next three years. He’s athletic and can play multiple positions. He’s just a good athlete and can hit.” But Reid also had praise for Motz. “His attitude is just second to none,” Reid said of the junior. “He is the consummate team player.

tive to what we have had to say. He has hit the ball hard this week. Those two (Werry and Motz) came up with two huge hits tonight with two outs and runners in scoring position. I think it kind of woke up a little bit. It was a real shot in the arm for us.” K.D. Patton and senior Brandon Spahn each had home runs in the Princeton game which provided a needed lift, especially for Spahn who has been dealing with some tough personal circumstances. “I want us to have a little more leadership…just the intangibles,” Reid said of his upperclassmen. There aren’t too many baseball days left, especially for the seniors. I want them to enjoy and appreciate every moment of it. I feel like we have been a little too laid back and lackadaisical and part of that could be because I’m pretty laid back and the team sometimes takes on the personality of the coach. But at the same time, you have to have something inside pushing you a little harder than we have shown.” The Vikings pitched their ace against Bosse in Nick Scheller. Scheller gave up only one hit through five innings. “He just looked like he was going to go bang-bangbang right through the game it started to get dark in thee sixth inning and was really hard to see,” Reid said. “They don’t have lights over there and all the sudden they started spraying a few around and he got a couple of pitches up but that’s just part of it.” Martin relieved Scheller in the sixth inning and the Vikings were able to hold on for the 4-3 win. The Bulldogs scored their three runs on only three hits while the Vikings had eight hits and scored four runs against the defending Class 3A Sectional champions. Scheller continues to lead the team in hitting. “We have a big conference week coming up. We have Gibson Southern on Tuesday and Tecumseh on Thursday,” Reid said. “We have Mt. Carmel in the in the mix and then Tell City on Saturday. So if the weather cooperates, this week will go a long way in determining whether we will be able to go against Forest Park and make them sweat a little bit.” From here on out, Reid said he wants his team to take the position in games that if they are going to lose a game, it is because the other team beat them, not because they beat themselves. That seems to be a good philosophy going into the final weeks of the season.

Mount Vernon dominates Viking track teams, scores well at Invite By Steve Joos Just about everybody was pleased with last week’s track meet at North Posey. Mount Vernon was bit more pleased than North Posey, however, since the Wildcats dominated both meets, winning the boys’ contest 86-36 and the girls’ meet 90-33. “We ran well,” Mount Vernon coach Steve Brenton said. “It wasn’t the best weather day for us, but we had a good wind behind us on the front stretch here.” The good wind paid dividends for the boys, as Tim Davis posted a time of: 15.4 in the 110-yard high hurdles and Will Terbeck ran the 100-meter dash in :11.28, both personal bests. Then there was Ken Renshaw, who came out on top in his first head-to-head with the Vikings’ Hunter Motz, winning the 1600-meter in 4:34, four seconds faster than Motz’ 4:38. “Kenny Renshaw won the first battle of Posey County,” Brenton said. “I’m sure there are more coming up. The Princeton Invite’s coming up, and the Mount Vernon Invite too, so they’ll have a few more. Kenny ran a good race. That’s his best for this season so far.” Dylan Reubenacker won with a personal best six-foot, four-inch high jump, while Teddy O’Connell flung the discus 136 feet, seven inches into the wind for the blue ribbon in that event. The meet was stopped for a half hour due to lightning strikes in the area, which may have caused some concern as far as keeping the athletes in shape was concerned. Terbeck also won the 200 (:24.32), but Renshaw stayed out of the 3,200-me-

ters in order to get ready for the upcoming invitationals, according to Brenton. That left the two-mile to Motz, who won by 24 seconds over the Wildcats’ Sean Ritzert. North Posey coach Kevin Gengelbach wanted improvement from his team and he felt as if he got it despite the one-sided score. “I thought they ran hard,” Gengelbach said. “They did run a good meet. I don’t know how many (personal bests) they had, but the boys looked like they went out and ran their hardest, which is all we’re asking for at this point. To run their hardest and get better each week.” Gengelbach thought that Motz may have had an offnight, but added that the senior hadn’t really been challenged prior to his race with Renshaw. “It’s the first time all year that Hunter’s been challenged in the mile that I can think of,” Gengelbach said. “It’s one of those things, learning your competition and where they’re going to kick. He ran a good race we expect him to come on at the end.” The Vikings are promising in some areas and will continue to work on improving in those areas, Gengelbach said. The Mount Vernon girls mixed a few things up and did well, taking blue ribbons in all but three events. It was a fun meet, accrediting to coach Jackie Maier, especially considering the weather and the fact that the girls were coming off prom weekend. “Ellen Foster got first in the 300-meter hurdles,” Maier said. “That’s a new event for her, so I’m pleased

Kate Cox of Mount Vernon set a new meet record at the Evansville Central Invitational track meet on Friday night.

there. We had a lot of personal bests. Lacy Johnson was third (in the 200-meters), but that’s a personal best. Tiffany Collins, they all turned in better performances than they did previously, so I’m pleased.” Maier didn’t think the delay caused her team any trouble, although she thought that they would have preferred to have gone home after being forced off the track with three races left. She hoped they would see it as a learning experience. The Lady Vikings ran well, even through some of them were a little stiff coming out of the delay, according to coach Leah Stormont. “Everybody ran about where they were supposed to,” she said. “Meagan Bender was happier with her time than in previous meets, but everyone was running about where they are.” The times were about the same as they had been in earlier meets against Princeton and Tecumseh, Stormont said, adding that the results weren’t as good mainly because of stronger competition. Bender had good reason to be happier with her time in the 400-meter dash. She won that event in 1:01.27. Stormont felt that the team needs to be more focused for their home meets in preparation for the stretch drive. Both Wildcat teams got their first major test of the season Friday night in Evansville and while they didn’t earn many blue ribbons, both teams seemed to perform well. The boys were fourth in their meet with 67 and onehalf points, while the girls came in third with 100. The girls’ 3,200-meter relay team brought home one of only two blue ribbons on the night as either team took a series of lower finishes and cobbled together their point totals. McCormick, Randall, Eaton and Stemple completed the two-mile relay in 10:31.52 for first place. Cox had the other first-place finish, with a 16-foot, nine and a quarter-inch long jump. Three second place finishes were the best performances of the night for the Wildcat boys. O’Connell’s took second in the discus, Terbeck was second in the 200-meters and Ruebenacker was the runner-up in the 110-high hurdles. Harrison won the boys’ meet with 134 points, while North (89 and one-half) came in second and Owensboro Apollo (70) was third. Mount Vernon was well ahead of fifth-place Mater Dei (50) in the boys’ meet. Mater Dei won the girls’ meet with 142 points, well outdistancing the Lady Huskies (112 and one half), as North took second in both meets. Harrison (73 and onehalf) and Central (45) rounded out the girls’ top five. The Wildcat boys were to have participated in the recent Castle Relays, but that meet was called off due to the weather.

North Posey golfers continue torrid pace By Steve Joos The North Posey boys’ golf team was called off the course and couldn’t finish the Washington Catholic Invitational recently. On Thursday, the Vikings and Cardinals met again—and maybe the Cardinals may have regretted that. Dylan Krohn carded a 39 as the Vikings dominated the visiting Cardinals 173-209 at Cambridge Golf Course. Alex Wade fired a 41 as the top two Vikings shot lower scores than Washington’s number-one man, Adam Joyce (43), who was also the lone Washington Catholic

linkster to break 45 at Cambridge. Ty Butler shot a 45 and Clint Cox carded a 48 to round out the Viking foursome. They were two strokes ahead of the number-two Washington Catholic golfer (Adam may, with a 50). Seth Elderkin carded a 53 and Andrew Reich a 57. Those scores didn’t count on North Posey’s team score, but both were lower than the number 3-4 Cardinal golfers. The Vikings were scheduled to compete in a tournament at Washington Catholic recently, but that tourney was called off due to inclement weather.

Some golfers were at the midway point of their rounds when they were called in off the course due to rain. Coach Levi Cox was disappointed with the performance of some of his golfers against Heritage Hills, but he felt that they did a good job of bouncing back against Central. The coach was especially pleased with Krohn’s efforts in out-shooting the Bears’ Dylan Meyers, who is one of Evansville’s top prep golfers. The Vikings were to have participated in the Central Invitational Saturday, but that tournament was rained out.

Wildcat golfers ‘pack’ too much for competition By Steve Joos The Mount Vernon boys’ golf team has been running in a pack lately. And that’s been bad news for their competition. The Wildcats won two more dual meets last week to stay undefeated in dual meet play. They picked up a key Big Eight Conference win Tuesday at Princeton and then shot lights out against visiting Bosse Thursday at Western Hills. On Wednesday, a pack of Wildcats went to the Princeton Country Club and overcame the Tigers 163-173. Princeton’s Jaqueb Taylor birdied the 240-yard par four second hole, but it wasn’t enough as Sam Key edged him for medalist honors by a stroke and the rest of the Cats’ foursome was between Taylor and the rest of the Tigers. Key led the Cats against Princeton with a one-over par 37, while Trevor Grant added a 40. Andrew Higgins and Joe Reinitz both posted 43s. Taylor paced Princeton with a 37, but the best the rest of the Tiger foursome could do was match Higgins and Reinitz, as Alex Sander was the number-two Tiger with a 43 and the number-three Princeton golfer, Jacob Greene, was a stroke behind Higgins and Reinitz with a 44. “We continued to have a good week as a team,” coach Doug Blair said. “We improved 12 strokes over two years ago at Princeton.” Blair was pleased with Key’s course management, but he felt that some of the other players may have over-clubbed on some holes since the yardages may have been shorter than posted. North Posey’s Alex Wade hits his appraoch shot durWhat that pack of Cats did to Bosse on Thursday was bruing recent action at Cambridge. Photo by Dave Pearce tal.

All four Mount Vernon gofers broke 40 and each came in well ahead of the Bulldogs’ top dog as the Cats were too much for Bosse 149-198. Kyle Sheffer turned in an even-par 35 to pace the Cats, while Reinitz added a 36. Key and Grant each fashioned 39s to round out the Cats’ foursome and each was five strokes ahead of Bosse’s low man, Brian Whitman (44). The coach was pleased with the rounds that Sheffer and Reinitz turned in against Bosse, adding that Key and Grant had their troubles, but were able to par out the last three holes. Kyle Sheffer shot a 45 and Todd Sheffer added a 50 at Princeton. Andrew Higgins and Brandon Lauderdale each carded 43s against the Bulldogs. The Wildcats were going to win the recent meet at Western Hills Country Club. In this case, the homestanding Cats were victorious---and how. Three Mount Vernon linksters broke 40 as the Cats charges past visiting Mater Dei 147-179 in Mount Vernon’s only meet of the week. Sheffer and Reinitz each fired 35s to pace Mount Vernon. Key added a 36 and Grant rounded out the Mount Vernon foursome with a 41. Kyle Seitz paced Mater Dei with a 38, higher than each of the top three Mount Vernon golfers and the only Mater Dei duffer under 40. Rain washed out the Central Invitational meet Saturday, which was to have included Mount Vernon and North Posey. That meet will be made up on Thursday, May 31, at Evansville’s Fendrich Golf Course.

Lady Wildcats find themselves on opposite ends of huge comebacks By Steve Joos The Mount Vernon softball team won two games last week, but they had trouble hanging on to a lead in two others. On the other hand, they were finally able to come back on an opponent for one of those victories. Madison Denning gave up one run in three innings on the mound and Amy Seifert sent a drive back up the middle to score Rhylee Ford with the game-winning run as Mount Vernon finally rallied to beat a team in seven innings, with an 8-7 victory over visiting Mount Carmel Thursday night. The comeback against Mount Carmel, which saw the Lady Cats score seven runs in the last three innings, was the highlight of a week which saw Mount Vernon split four games, with two wins by way of a big rally and a 10-run rule blowout and two losses, each in the same manner. The Lady Wildcats opened the week with a 12-2, sixinning win at Norris CityOmaha-Enfield and ended it prematurely on Friday, with a 15-5 drubbing at Forest Park, in a game which was called after six innings under the 10run rule The rally against the Lady Aces came on the night after the Lady Cats built up a big lead at Central, only to see the

Lady Bears come back for a 10-9 win. The Lady Cats were a bit drained following the emotional game at Central Wednesday, where they let a 9-1 lead get away, and that left them flat at the outset of Thursdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s contest, coach Jeff Crabtree said. That carried over to Thursday night, as Mount Venron struggled with the slower offerings of Lady Aces freshman hurler Ragan Keepes â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were a little thrown off by her (Keepes) pitching,â&#x20AC;? according to the coach. She threw off speed and we were a little used to more speed. I told them all to let the ball start getting on the plate. Once we let the ball get on the plate, we did better.â&#x20AC;? Elizabeth Damm led off the seventh with a single and took second when Meagan Montgomery followed with a single and scored on a one-out hit by Ford. Abby Oden walked and Brittany Wilson grounded to first, which brought in Montgomery with the game-tying run. Seifert sent a one-ball pitch back up the middle and scored Ford with the game-winner. The idea that first-year Mount Carmel coach Katie Odell opted to pitch to Seifert surprised Crabtree. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had our all-conference third baseman, Amy Seifert

up with two runners in scoring position and down one run and first base open and their coach decided to pitch to her,â&#x20AC;? Crabtree said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll give her that credit, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a new coach and sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s done a good job with that program and the girls who came back this year, but she doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know Amy Seifert and she let Amy go ahead and take her cuts and Amy did her thing.â&#x20AC;? Crabtree felt that his team may have taken Mount Carmel for granted early in the game and that might have also hampered Mount Vernon at the outset. After losing a big lead the night before, it was the Lady Cats who were doing the spotting against Mount Carmel, as Mount Venom trailed 6-2 heading into the bottom of the sixth inning when Oden tripled and then Wilson, Seifert and Tylyn Tanner each added run-scoring singles, all with two outs. That pulled Mount Vernon to within a run at 6-5, but the Lady Aces tacked on what they hoped was an insurance tally to the top of the seventh inning on a single by Jessica Simpson, a stolen base and a two out single by Cassie Conn. The Lady Cats banged out 12 hits against Mount Carmel, one night after collecting 11 blows against Central. But things didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t look too encouraging for Mount Vernon after the visitors plated six runs in the first four in-

nings by taking advantage of two walks, a hit batsman and an error. The Lady Wildcatsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; bats started coming back to life prior to Thursday, but the team still struggled in foru losses, including one where a six-run lead got away. Rayvyn Rogers doubled in the first run of the game for Mount Carmel and Sarah Reilly doubled in two more as part of Mount Carmelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s secondinning outburst which pushed the lead to 3-0. That frame ended when Reilly was gunned down at third base. Crabtree pulled starting pitcher Brooke Webber in favor of Denning one out, a run home and the bases loaded in the top of the fourth Those runners came home, but the freshman was able to hold the Illinoisans to one run the rest of the way while her teammates started chipping away. The team is starting to recognize pitches and starting to pay better attention to where the pitch is and better locate it, which is why theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re starting to come around, the coach added. Seifert had four hits on the night, while Livia Hopper had three and Ford two. Oden moved into the leadoff spot and Wilson in the two hole, as the Lady Wildcats begin to develop their identity for this season, Crabtree added. The shoe was on the other foot Wednesday, as the Lady Cats scored five runs in the top

of the first, but couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hold on, even though Denning kept the Lady Bears at bay for three innings. But when Crabtree went to Stratton first and then things fell apart for Mount Vernon, as Central plated three runs in three different to pull out the win. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need to get more than three innings out of our pitches,â&#x20AC;? Crabtree said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had 11 hits last night. Everybody who played for us (at Central) got at leas one hot. Our defense is playing pretty well, but out pitching is our weakest point right now.â&#x20AC;? Montgomery belted her second home run of the week Wednesday night, a three-run blast that stretched the lead to 9-3 in the top of the fifth inning. The junior outfielder smacked a two-run shot in the third as the Lady Wildcats opened the week by routing Norris City-Omaha-Enfield 12-2 in six innings under the 10-run rule NCOE drew first blood with a run in the top of the first, but the visiting Lady Cardinals were the only one who were bleeding after that, as Mount Vernon scored in five of the six innings, pushing across four runs in the bottom of the second and three in the fourth. The Lady Cats seemed to have put their bats away after scoring five runs in the top of the second inning Friday,

Crabtree said, but once again it was the struggles of the young pitchers which gave Mount Vernon trouble at Forest Park. The Lady Rangers came back with eight runs in the bottom of the second didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let up until the sixth, as they banged out 15 hits. Mackenzie Stratton started the game, but was pulled after an inning and two-thirds against the Lady Rangers. Denning and Webber finished up. Defensively, Crabtree felt that his team played well under muddy conditions at Ferdinand, only committing two errors (Forest Park committed four miscues). Sifter and Turner each had hits at Forest Park, while Stratton and Ford also added blows. Central wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the first place where a lead got away from Mount Vernon as the Lady Cats couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hold a 7-1 lead after five innings at Wood Memorial recently. The Lady Trojans erupted for six runs in the bottom of the seventh to pull out an 8-7 victory over visiting Mount Vernon. The loss capped a frustrating week which also saw the Lady Cats struggle to hit the ball in two games in losses to Mater Dei 8-2 at home, and 4-2 at Harrison. Mount Vernon took a 4-7 record into Mondayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game with Jasper.

The Lady Vikings came close at a few spots Wednesday night, but came up short, losing at Central 3-2. Brown won her first set, but struggled in the next two, falling to Devon Bray 1-6, 7-5, 7-6(0) at third singles, while Simpson and Kendall Reidford pushed Cassie Gilham and Melissa Blythe to the limit in the first set, but couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hang on in a 7-6(5), 6-3 loss at first doubles. Thomas and the second doubles duo had an easier time, with Thomas beating Margie Akin 6-3, 6-2 at second singles and the combination of Perry and Esche pulling out a 6-1, 6-4 decision over Cate Fritchley and Kaci Nisswandt at second doubles. Durcholz ran into another buzzsaw at first singles and dropped a 6-0, 6-0 decision to Jessica Kim. The reserves came away with a 4-2 win in their meet. Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s North Posey Invitational meet was rained out. The invite, which was to have included Reitz, North and South Knox in addition to North Posey, will be made up on May 14.

The North Posey and Tell City girlsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; tennis teams finally met Thursday night. After twice being postponed, the Lady Vikings and Lady Marksmen squared off at North Posey and the home team came away with a 5-0 victory and a split of the weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dual meets. Second singles, third singles and first doubles had the most competitive matches, with even those spots werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t all that close, at least not on paper. Shelby Ackerman topped Rachel Woznicki 6-3, 6-3 at third singles, while Meagan Durcholz was a 6-3, 6-1 winner over Alexis Braun. The score was also 6-3, 6-1 at first doubles, with Nichole Perry and Caitlin Esche dispatching Kayla Bailey and Brooke Birchler. Wendi Simpson and Brianna Brown blanked Robyn Scarpia and Lacy Briggs 6-0, 6-0 at second doubles, while Natalie Thomas was a 6-1, 6-0 winner over Mary Burst at first singles. There was no reserve meet.

LEG LEGALS EG L Griffin Fire Department gets Thursday workout Members of the Griffin Fire Department have been very useful this week. During the early morning hours of Thursday, May 21, personnel of the department along with members of the Poseyv8ille and Poseyville fire departments responded to the report of a mobile home fire at the Black River Camp area near Griffin. After responding to the fire scene, firefighters observed items they felt were related to the clandestine manufacture of Methampheatime and requested personnel of the Posey County Narcotis Unit and the Posey County

Sheriff. Located at the scene was property owner Robert Wayne Rueger, 58. During the investigation, Rueger was arrested and taken to the Posey County Jail where he was being held on preliminary charges of manufacturing methamphetamine. The residence was completely destroyed in the blaze and a dog perished in the blaze. Earlier that evening, members of the same units had responded to a house fire on Adams Street in Griffin. That home appeared to be vacant at the time of the fire.

Severe cross-winds blow over semi Tuesday night, April 19, at approximately 10 p.m., Indiana State Police responded to a single vehicle crash on U.S. 41 north of I-64 that was caused by severe cross-winds. The Evansville driver was wearing his seat belt and escaped serious injury. Preliminary investigation

revealed that George Smith, 59, of Evansville, was driving his 2007 International semi tractor without a trailer southbound on U.S. 41 approximately 600 feet north of I-64 when severe crosswinds blew his tractor over onto the driver’s side. The tractor came to final rest in the median and no other ve-

hicles were involved. Smith was wearing his seatbelt, but complained of chest pain. He was taken to St. Mary’s Hospital where he was treated for his injury. Investigating Officer: Trooper Matt Jacobs, Indiana State Police. Assisting Agency: Gibson County Sheriff’s Department
