Cost of ambulance ride going up in Posey

By Dave Pearce Earlier this year, residents of Posey County met at the Posey County Community Center and told county officials they would be willing to pay the cost of having better ambulance service in Posey County. Residents will get their first opportunity to keep their word when rate increases go into effect in the coming weeks for use of the county’s ambulance services. Posey County Emergency Medical Services director Chuck Thompson told members of the County Commissioners Tuesday morning that rates in Posey County are well under average in the state and that the county writes off too many charges for ambulance runs. In the end, commissioners voted to raise the cost of ambulance runs as well as hire a new bill-

ing service to send out bills much more quickly and be much more aggressive in collecting past due bills. The measure will help bring the county more in line with what other county medical services charge for ambulance runs as well as also bringing the county into compliance with Medicare and Medicaid regulations. In other business, the commissioners: •Heard Glen Luedtke, a representative from SRI, explain how the county could possibly get some 87 properties with more than $400,000 in delinquent taxes back into the hands of property owners and get them back on the tax rolls. SRI agrees to sell the properties and in essence, forgiving the past due taxes and making the properties attractive to investors or neighbors of the properties that will not currently sell

because the past due tax amounts are greater than the value of the property. The company sells the properties, with the assistance of the Internet, to the highest bidder and the property once again begins to bring money into the county’s coffers. SRI will collect only on properties that are sold and will collect 10 percent of the proceeds from an Internet auction while claiming 15 percent from a live sale. The earliest possible sale date would be midDecember. The company representative told the commissioners that generally 50 to 60 percent of the listings are sold with between seven and 10 percent generating a surplus. •Awarded the first phase of the Wabash Levee Bid as recommended to Tempel and Tem-

Condition of Maple Hill raises concerns By Pam Robinson The New Harmony Town Council focused on concerns about the condition of Maple Hill Cemetery at its Thursday, August 18, meeting. Betty Barnett and Jenny Kimmel spoke with council about stones chipped and stones moved off their foundation during mowing. They brought photos to substantiate their accounts. “I’m glad you took pictures,” responded New Harmony Town President David Campbell. He assured the two women that the mowing contractor, Scotty’s Lawn Equipment in Haubstadt, had been called before and would be called again the day after the meeting concerning their mowing work. It was stated that riding mowers were driven too quickly through the cemetery during mowing. The women suggested the Town of New Harmony contract someone else or hire its own employee to care for Maple Hill Cemetery after the $1,100 per month contract with Scotty’s expires. Councilwoman Linda Warrum reminded those present that no contractors other than Scotty’s had expressed any interest in taking on the job.

Town President David Campbell concluded that he would talk to Scotty’s and report back to the women. He thanked them for bringing the issue to his attention and asked them to hold onto their pictures. The next day after the meeting, Councilwoman Linda Warrum contacted Scotty’s and said the contractor will be doing a site visit at Maple Hill Cemetery. In other business: •Councilman Don Gibbs and Street Superintendent Bobby Grider stressed that limbs and yard waste should be placed in separate piles for pickup. •Council advised that recommendation letters for the appointment to the Ford Home board must be received no later than September 10. •Council approved closing the intersection at Main and Tavern on Sunday, September 11, from 5 to 11 p.m. for the Schelhorn Brothers concert sponsored by the New Harmony Business Associates. •Council approved the irrevocable license agreement

By Dave Pearce The Vanderburgh County Coroner’s office has confirmed the identity of a body that was found in Fligeltaub’s scrap metal yard. As was reported in the July 19 edition of the Posey County News, the body has officially been identified as that of 18-year-old Linden Richard Hill. Hill went missing from Mount Vernon in November 2008. His whereabouts since then had been unknown. Preliminary autopsy results indicate no signs of foul play. Groves says the person has been dead for over two years. Groves and her team found a tattoo on the body that led them to a missing Mount Vernon man who had been missing since 2008. “The height matched. The age matched. And how long he’s been missing matched.” says Groves. DNA tests are done and positive identification has been made. Eighteen-year-old Linden Richard Hill went missing from Mount Vernon in November 2008. His whereabouts since then had been unknown. Foul play has been ruled out of the investigation, though the cause of death is still being determined. Groves said she had hoped toxicology reports would reveal the man’s cause of death. She says this is the first time she has needed the assistance of an anthropologist in several years, due to the condition of the body.

Rewards outweigh volunteer effort at Camp Victory By Pam Robinson Mount Vernon native and resident Don Kleinschmidt will tell anyone he receives more than he gives from volunteering at Victory Junction, a camp for permanently ill or disabled children, run by the Petty family of NASCAR fame. Out of his annual four weeks’ vacation, the over-theroad truck driver has devoted two weeks to Victory Junction for three years now. Grace abounds for Kleinschmidt in the form of gratitude for his health and inspiration for his heart. ”I’m definitely thankful for the health that those kids just don’t have,” he says. “The experience is so positive. Not one of these children ever says, ‘I can’t,’ even though they have so many things working against them. They still try.” Built by Kyle and Patty Petty on land Kyle’s father and mother Richard and Lynda Petty donated, Victory Junction stands as a memorial for Kyle and Patty Petty’s son Adam, killed at the age of 19 during a NASCAR racing practice in 1999. Adam had enjoyed volunteering at hospitals to encourage sick kids, and his family wanted to continue the tradition. Victory Junction is accredited by,

Ambulance, from Page 1A Excavating of Salem, Ind., in the amount of $695,000. Division two of the bid was awarded to Blankenbergers of Cynthiana in the amount of $192,900. Copies of the permits were issued by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers who will periodically check and inspect work being done on this project. This is a joint project between Gibson and Posey counties. •During the meeting decided, upon the advice of the county attorneys, to award the bid of the Bluegrass Road Project to Russell’s Excavating due to a new law which passed in July regarding “Indiana Local Business Initiative.” However, following the meeting, the county was advised to go with the original awarding of the bid due to a misinter-

pretation of the new law. It was originally awarded to D.K. Parker in the amount of $121,930. •Heard a representative from Morgan Stanley Investments who was on hand to complete follow through on an ordinance which was drafted in 2008. The ordinance called for a representative from the company, which represents sheriff’s departments in 60 to 65 counties throughout the state, to address members of the Posey County Sheriff’s Department. That action in 2008 was never completed.

Cheesy Tomato Pie

“Deep-Dish Brushetta”

INGREDIENTS • 1 9-inch pie shell (see pie crust recipe for homemade version) • 1/2 yellow or red onion, chopped • 3-4 tomatoes, cut in half horizontally, squeezed to remove excess juice, roughly chopped, to yield approximately 3 cups chopped tomatoes • 1/4 cup sliced basil (about 8 leaves)* • 2 cups grated cheese (combination of sharp cheddar and Monterey Jack, or Gruyere or Mozarella) • 3/4 cup mayonnaise • 1 teaspoon (or more to taste) of Frank’s Hot Sauce (or Tabasco) • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

among others, Paul Newman’s Hole in the Wall Gang Camp in Ashford, Connecticut, around since 1988. Like Newman’s camp, Victory Junction provides camp to qualifying kids at no charge. The website provides telling statistics about the kids served: •Victory Junction has enriched the lives of more than 14,000 children and families since opening in 2004 and welcomed children from 50 states and four countries. •The cost of sending a child to camp is valued at $2,500, but no child or family incurs that cost thanks to generous donors. •Since 2004, 13,224 volunteer positions have been filled. Last year, volunteers sacrificed an estimated 47,156 hours to assist at Victory Junction. •Victory Junction serves 24 chronic medical conditions and serious illnesses such as, but not limited to, Autism, Cancer, Craniofacial Anomalies, Diabetes, Hemophilia, Sickle Cell and Spina Bifida. For a full list, please visit www.victoryjunction.org. •Thirty hospitals partner with Victory Junction to deliver exceptional health care to campers with a variety of needs. •The camp, located in Randleman, North Carolina, is built on 84 acres and donated by Richard and Lynda Petty. The future Kansas facility will be housed on approximately 71 acres. Kleinschmidt says one of the most important rules at Victory Junction is “Have fun!” His description of the facilities and activities makes it clear that the kids – and their leaders – couldn’t do anything but have fun. Every recreation imaginable is provided, all the way from an indoor arena to a petting zoo. Kids enjoy archery and arcade games, boating and bowling, and a great cafeteria that caters to special diets. Celebrities visit and camp closes with NASCARnival featuring tethered hot air balloon rides. Twelve cabins sleep 96 children, with eight campers and eight adult leaders per cabin. The cabin’s furnishings reflect the NASCAR theme: race car beds, tool box footlockers and a bedside shelf in the shape of an old-fashioned gas pump. The entire

Posey Humane Society needs help Once everyone has a chance to settle back into the school routine, have you thought about volunteering at Posey Humane Society? There are always dogs to be walked or brushed, cats to be socialized, and lots of other jobs that need to be done on a daily basis. If you have an hour or two a week that you could spare now and again, please think about spending it at PHS. It does not have to be a long term commitment. To find out more or just check out the shelter, please feel free to stop

Immunization clinics set for August The Posey County Health Department will hold an immunization clinic Wednesday, August 24, 2011 at St. Francis Catholic School Cafeteria from 3 p.m. — 5 p.m. and Wednesday, August 31, at the Coliseum in Mount Vernon from 2 p.m. - 6 p.m. An appointment is not neededfor these clinics. Required immunization additions for the 2011 2012 school year are as follows: • All KINDERGARTEN students will be required to have 2 doses of varicella vaccine, given on or after the first birthday and separated by 3 months, or a history of chickenpox disease documented by a physician. • All KINDERGARTEN students will be required to have one of the required doses of polio vaccine

camp is wheelchair accessible. Kids with the same medical condition are brought together for their stay. During the summer, campers come for a week at a time from Sunday through Friday. In the spring and fall, weekend getaways are provided. Campers are recommended through a reference from a doctor or hospital. Forty to 45 volunteers a week are needed to keep Victory Junction running smoothly in addition to the paid full-time staff. Local medical students are often required to serve at the camp as part of their training. Everyone must pass a stringent selection process to insure readiness to be there for the kids— without the distraction of radio or TV, cell phones or iPods. Generous donations and charity fundraisers fund Victory Junction. Many NASCAR greats have contributed. “It’s a positive experience for the volunteers and for the kids,” Kleinschmidt says. He even shaved his signature beard and his hair this summer to better empathize with the Victory Junction campers fighting cancer. He expects to volunteer there summer after summer. Otherwise, Don Kleinschmidt enjoys NASCAR, cars, and racing memorabilia. He owns a limited edition 2008 Bullitt Mustang, number 853 of 6,600 produced (featured in the accompanying photo), and a mint 1951 Oldsmobile. An independent trucker who enjoys being his own boss, he’s driven for USF Holland the past 25 years of his 42-year career. He is a member of Trinity United Church of Christ. He regularly spends time with his two grown children. His son Kristopher is a licensed pilot for Tri-State Aero in Evansville. In spite of the history of 18 degrees from Indiana University in his family and extended family, Kristopher earned his aviation degree from Purdue. His daughter Heather lives in Chicago and is pursuing her second career at Loyola University, where she is studying to be a veterinarian. A graduate of Indiana University Law School, until last year, she worked for a federal magistrate.

Celebrate Hoosier local foods and support your local farmers Do you enjoy a grilled steak or pork chop, fresh green salad with a vineripened Indiana tomato or a juicy slice of Indiana watermelon? Then join us during Going Local Week 2011 Sunday, September 4 through Saturday, September 10, 2011 to celebrate our abundant Indiana grown foods across the state. During Going Local Week, Hoosiers are encouraged to include at least one Indiana grown or produced food at each meal. “I encourage everyone to take part in Going Local Week,” said Lt. Governor Becky Skillman. “With all the high-quality and affordable food available in farmers’ markets across the state, this is an opportunity to try something new, get to know the farmers who grow your food, and even get one of their recipes. I am so proud of our Hoosier producers and all they offer each community.” Need ideas for Going Local Week or additional information? The Go-

ing Local website (www. goinglocal-info.com) has information about Indiana food and producers, listings of local food events, farm tours, as well as recipes featuring Indiana’s fresh, local, and in-season foods. To locate a farmers’ market, go to the Indiana Farmers’ Market and Agritourism Directory (www.in.gov/ isda) developed by Indiana State Department of Agriculture (ISDA), in partnership with the Indiana Office of Tourism Development. Going Local Week was created in 2008 by Indiana local food blogger, Victoria Wesseler, who authors the Going Local site. She notes that if Indiana families shift $6.25 of their current weekly food budget to purchase Indiana-grown local food, $300 million would be added to the state economy. “That’s impressive, but that's not the final number,” Wesseler said. “Studies show every dollar spent locally will multiply itself by 3 to 5 times. It may be hard to believe but, with a subtle shift in our food spending

habits, we can make a $900 million to $1.5 billion economic impact on Indiana in one year.” Going Local Week 2011 contacts:Victoria Wesseler, Going Local, victoria@goinglocal-info.com, www.goinglocal-info.com, Phone: 765-325-2940.

Carmi’s Corn Days to host Oct . 7 Artisan Fest On July 6, 2011, New Harmony Inn received a phone call from the Charles Ford Home in New Harmony, Indiana, stating they had 10 baby ducklings at their doorstep apparently abandoned by their mother. Normally, mother ducks do not abandon their ducklings; therefore, the mother duck was probably a victim of a wildlife predator. Out of the 10 ducklings, 6 have survived and are doing very well. They have their very own baby “swimming pool” and will be released to swim freely on Swan Lake behind the New Harmony Inn on August 23 at 9:30 am. The public is invited to attend.

River Days to host Flight Demonstration team on Sunday On Sunday, September 11, at 1 p.m., the Aviation Explorer Post 447 Flight Demonstration Team will perform at Mount Vernon River Days. The team is sponsored by Tri-State Aero located in Evansville and is a non-for-profit organization. The carefully scripted performance complies with Federal Aviation Administration rules so the aerial displays are no lower than 1,000 feet above ground level. The mission of the Aviation Explorer Post 447 is to inform, educate and inspire youth ages 14 through 20 to enter careers or to develop an interest in aviation. Since its incep-

tion in 1995, this unique organization has provided youth with an up-close look into aviation through a number of activities: hearing guest speakers, participating in bi-weekly meetings, touring airport facilities, taking airplane rides, traveling to air shows and more. The overall mission is to assist the next generation of industry professionals in the community. The aircraft currently used in the aerial displays is a Piper Cherokee, a single engine aircraft that has served the industry for over half a decade. Admission to the September 11 performance is free.

Social Security Form included in Back to School checklist If your son or daughter is a high school student turning 18, you’ve probably spent some time shopping for school supplies and the latest fashions, working out the schedule for the academic year, maybe even looking into colleges. If your young senior is collecting monthly Social Security benefits, here’s one more thing to add to your “Back-to-School” checklist. To make sure that Social Security benefits continue beyond age 18, eligible students must obtain certification from school officials that they are still in high school and provide it to Social Security. Otherwise, monthly Social Security benefits automatically stop when a student turns 18. For more information about Social Security student benefits, visit www.socialsecurity.gov/schoolofficials. The website outlines how the process works with instructions on what the student and school official must do to ensure that benefits continue past the student’s 18th birthday. With the appropriate certification, Social Security generally does not stop benefits until the month before the month the student turns 19, or the first month in which he or she is not a full-time high school student, whichever is earlier. Some students receive Social Security survivors benefits be-

cause a parent is deceased. Others may get dependent benefits because their parent receives Social Security retirement or disability benefits. Benefits for minor children generally continue until age 18 or 19 if they’re still in high school. The only exception to this rule is if a student is disabled and eligible for childhood disability benefits. In that case, a separate application for benefits is required. Social Security’s website also includes: · a downloadable version of the required Student’s Statement Regarding School Attendance (Form SSA-1372) that must be completed by the student, certified by the school, and returned to Social Security; · answers to frequently asked questions for school officials and students; and · a field office locator to find the address of your local Social Security office. So as you’re buying school supplies, trying out back-to-school fashions, and figuring out when the holiday break begins, don’t forget the important step of visiting www.socialsecurity.gov/ schoolofficials.

American Red Cross urges donations around Labor Day Labor Day is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers and is a time to celebrate the well-being of our country. Donating blood is a noble way to celebrate the hard work Americans have done to strengthen our country. As families celebrate the holiday, the Red Cross encourages eligible donors to schedule an appointment to donate blood. All blood types are needed, especially O negative, B negative, and A negative. Type O negative, the universal blood type, can potentially be transfused to patients with any blood type. To show appreciation for those who help save lives near the Labor Day holiday (August 29 – September 7), all presenting donors at Red Cross blood drives and blood donation centers in the River Valley region will automatically be entered for a chance to win a $500 gas card. This is a part of the Red Cross’ summer-long Good to Give. Good to Go. promotion that also offers a chance for one lucky donor (21 and older) in the MidAmerica Blood Services Division to win a trip for four

(4) to Orlando, Florida. “During the holiday weekend, we typically see a dip in blood donations, but the need is constant. Donating blood is an easy way to help others and only takes about an hour of your time,” said Linda Voss, CEO of the River Valley Red Cross Blood Services region. “The Red Cross encourages donors to give blood each time they are eligible; every 56 days for whole blood donations and 112 days for double red cell donations.” How to Donate Blood Simply call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) or visit redcrossblood.org to make an appointment or for more information. A blood donor card or driver’s license, or two other forms of identification are required at check-in. Individuals who are 17 years of age (16 with parental permission in some states), weigh at least 110 pounds and are generally in good health may be eligible to donate blood. High school students and other donors 18 years of age and younger also have to meet certain height and weight requirements.

Angel Food Ministries supports National Hunger Action Month in September Angel Food Ministries (AFM), the nation’s largest nonprofit food ministry, will join in supporting national Hunger Action Month in September. Every month AFM donates more than 600 of its food packages free to those in need while also offering food packages at 30-50% off retail prices to anyone. AFM recently donated more than 11 tons of food to tornado victims in Joplin, Mo. “Hunger continues to affect millions of Americans day in and day out. Nearly 15 percent (17.4 million) of U.S. households are food insecure and have difficulty providing enough food for all members of their family,” said Pastor Wes Wingo, AFM chief information officer and CEO of Ministry Development. “Children make up an important percentage of those who are food insecure and

1-888-819-3745 or through local churches. To locate your nearest host site and/ or to order online, visit www.angelfoodministries. com and click on “Order Online.” Headquartered in Monroe Ga., AFM offers a dozen standard food packages and a number of specialty packages at great discounts because it purchases food in bulk, does not have retail space and labor costs, does not advertise, uses less packaging, and benefits from the labor of some 40,000 volunteers at their partner churches. Each month AFM compares prices item by item at major retailers in the 45 states it serves. In a recent price comparison, Angel Food’s Bread of Life Signature Box, which sells for $35, was priced for as much as $79 retail. AFM’s Bountiful Blessing Box,

which sells for $46, was priced for as much as $114 retail. Prices are compared with major grocery and discount retailers and vary by marketplace. “Angel Food is dedicated to helping those in need while also benefiting those churches and organizations we partner with,” Pastor Wingo said. “We have returned nearly $24 million to our partner churches and every month bring more individuals into their churches than any other single organization in America.” AFM is non-denominational and does not require religious faith to order their food packages. AFM also does not rely on donations -- less than 1 percent of AFM revenues come from donations. To review this month’s menu and gather more information, please visit: www.angelfoodministries.com.

United Way Pacesetters lead campaign This year, six local school systems – M.S.D. of Mount Vernon, M.S.D. of North Posey, New Harmony Public School, St. Matthew School, St. Philip School, and St. Wendel School, are Pacesetters for the United Way campaign. They will run their United Way campaign during August and results are announced at the United Way of Posey County campaign kick-off on September 15th. Their early support and enthusiasm will get this year’s campaign off to a good start. Keith Spurgeon, campaign chairman, said “It is very exciting to have all the local schools as Pacesetters. It’s a good time to meet with everyone and it helps our United Way campaign have early success.” Dr. Thomas Kazee, President of the University of Evansville, will be the featured speaker at the United Way of Posey County Leadership Giving Recognition Dinner on August 30th at 6:30 P.M. at the Mount Vernon High School Cafeteria.

Poseyville Feed Mill Restaurant to make changes The Poseyville Feedmill LLC has announced that it will not renew its license with the Feedmill Restaurant in Morganfield Kentucky. The LLC will continue to operate its restaurant at 6950 Frontage Road, Poseyville, Indiana as the “Red Wagon Restaurant and Bar”. Along with the name change there will be a new and improved menu. Other than the new menu, restaurant operations will remain unchanged with the same management and personnel. The popular Sunday brunch and the weekend breakfast buffets will continue as well. The change

will be effective September 20, 2011. The Poseyville Feedmill Restaurant was opened by the LLC in November of 2008 pursuant to a license agreement with the Feedmill Restaurant based in Morganfield, Kentucky. The facility has seating for approximately 400 patrons including a full service bar and a banquet room that seats 100 people. The restaurant offers full service banquet and catering services with menus that can be customized for any event and budget. The managing member of the LLC, Jane Reising cites

menu improvements for the change. According to Reising, “we will be able to use the talent and creativity of our team to provide a more varied and healthy selection of food for our patrons”. Restaurant general manager, Brent Tharp, says “we are excited about the ability to provide better choices for our guests. Our flexibility to make changes based on feedback from our patrons and to provide seasonal features will be a real plus for our customers.” Tharp indicates that the new menu will soon be posted on the website, feedmillposeyville.com.

new system, when the subscription remains unpaid, a label will no longer be printed for that paper, until such time as it is paid. Recent changes in Mount Vernon have enabled us to partner with Guilty Pleasures. The “office” in Mount Vernon is now inside Guilty Pleasures and you may drop off payments, drop off news items, or place “Thank You” ads while you are at Guilty Pleasures. Shelia Schwindel and her fine staff have agreed to work with us and help provide a community service for the people in the Mount Vernon area. The recent opening of the office in Poseyville, next door to Margaret’s Consignment Shop, has allowed individuals to drop off items and payments in the Poseyville office in the mornings as Staci Cox has been there to take those items. However, in an effort to better serve the community and in an effort to be open when more people would have an opportunity to take advantage of the Poseyville office, the “official” office hours in Poseyville will be 1:30 until 4:30 Monday through Friday beginning this week. Staci is a very busy woman who is raising four boys and who drives a school bus in

both the mornings and the afternoons. Sports Editor Steve Joos will be in and out of the office during the morning times and we plan to put a secured drop box on the outside of the door in the coming days in case you miss us. Someone will staff the office from 1:30 until 4:30 daily. Poseyville residents please take advantage of this afternoon service which is offered to you. Change often forces small business owners to make painful decisions and while Staci was the consummate professional in the office and an extremely hard worker, the new system will take away many of the items that were required to be done in the Poseyville office and will require that others be done in the afternoon, at times when Staci was driving the school bus. So, in the coming weeks, expect your mailing label to look a little different but be assured that it is in the name of progress. We want to retain your subscription and your trust. If we can help in any way, call us at the New Harmony at 812-682-3950 or at the Poseyville office 812-962-0881. We look forward to a long relationship with our subscribers.

Chances are your family is just as dysfunctional as mine A joke circulates among counselors and their clients that 97 percent of families are dysfunctional, and no one has ever talked with the other three percent. It helps us all to keep FOR THE our perspective— RECORD and our sense of humor—about the BY PAM imperfection in all ROBINSON human relationships. That joke resurfaced for me a couple of weekends ago as I read Jeannette Walls’ bestselling memoir, “The Glass Castle.” A successful journalist and writer now as an adult, Walls tells the story of growing up in

her alcoholic family with honesty and compassion. I don’t want to ruin the story for anyone interested in reading it, so I’ll spare you the details. Suffice it to say, she never once uses the word dysfunctional in talking about her family. Instead, Walls lets the story speak for itself. What most appeals to me about the author is her courage in the storytelling – she doesn’t sugar coat anything even about herself – and her abiding love for her parents in spite of their maddening mistakes, some of them life-threatening to their four children. Walls understands she must live differently than her parents, but she never stops loving them.

I remember a counselor getting in my face once to make his point. “You come from a highly dysfunctional family—a highly dysfunctional family,” he practically shouted. I swallowed hard to keep from crying. To the counselor’s credit, he only wanted to be sure I faced my past so I could start living in the present. Still, those of us who keep secrets about our families—well, we all know our families are highly dysfunctional without the emphasis. I’d venture to add many of us love our families anyway. Since I really can’t speak for everyone else, however, I will just say what I know and feel about my relationship with my own family. My parents themselves endured

great hardship as children. Their circumstances shaped who they were as adults. They were emotionally needy and troubled people. They did the best they could as parents, and considering the upbringing they got, they could have done far worse. Although I won’t hesitate to tell anyone the past 20 years of my life have been the best, I knew times of joy and peace even in the midst of dealing with a highly dysfunctional family. I also learned resilience and compassion. It just goes to show that God can bring blessing even through severely broken people. If 97 percent of families are dysfunctional, mixed blessings are the best any of us can expect to receive anyhow.

Guest Editorial “Roads-Path to Strong Economy” Road construction, we have all driven through it. Felt frustrated by it. Asked ourselves how can this take so long? Sometimes road construction can feel less like the construction of a road and more like the construction of chaos. Keeping our infrastructure up-to-date is essential to the sustainability of our community, especially our economic future. Advocating for more repairs to our roads has been a top objective of mine since taking office. I have worked hard to build a relationship with the Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) and make them aware of the roadway needs of Southwest Indiana. I have also begun to understand the complicated process of a road construction project. From project approval, engineering, bidding, work commencement and work completion, it is an arduous process that involves everyone from the federal level all the way down to the local level. My goal has been to get in front of as many of the right people, either at the state level or the local level, to put our roadway needs in their thoughts. This week, I will have another meeting with INDOT and local officials to review infrastructure needs and

provide solutions to existing needs. Earlier this year, I met with INDOT to discuss the re-pavement of State Road 62, which has an estimated completion date of November 1st. This project showed me the immensity of work required to get a road project completed, from securing the necessary funds and signatures, to engineering a plan and weather cooperation. In addition to collaborating with INDOT and local officials, I sit on the Roads and Transportation Committee and now serve on the Joint Summer Study Committee for Transportation and Infrastructure Assessment and Solutions. The interim study committee is charged with addressing many important issues such as projecting Indiana's transportation demands through 2035 and establishing appropriate roles and responsibilities for the state, county, municipal governments and the private sector in meeting Indiana's projected transportation demands. Road construction will probably continue to give us headaches, but our cities and towns benefit greatly from these needed improvements. Even though road construction feels like chaos, INDOT has a system in place to

Wendy McNamara ensure a project gets completed safely, correctly and efficiently. Throughout my tenure as a representative, I will continue to advocate for improvements to our infrastructure

“Redneck Kayacking” “Jim, why don’t we have a boat? Everyone we know has at least one boat; the neighbors across the road own three.” I said nothing. Nothing sounded like the best response. “We have this pond and we don’t have a boat. What if we need to rescue somebody? Wouldn’t you feel awfully silly if you drowned trying to swim out and haul the dog or the cat back to shore?” Nothing was still the best option, but I could sense the genesis of a retort. I fought it off. Oh, what the heck. I said: Our pond is so small I can almost jump across it. A boat longer than six feet would butt up against both banks. And we only have one neighbor within a half mile of us. Their three boats have not seen water since the Flood. They use them to house field mice. The dog is afraid of thunder, lightening, the cat and water. She won’t go near the pond. The cat thinks any water other than from his own tongue is poison. And, besides, isn’t that why we have that stupid WalMart pool, so you and the grandkids don’t have to swim in the pond? I paused; I should have redacted. “We have the above ground pool because you were too cheap to put in a real one. The grandkids fish in the pond and might fall in.

EVANSVILLE, INDIANA


Friday night 7 p.m. Mount Vernon’s Memorial Stadium Battle of Posey County Winner receives first Posey County News Trophy

Experience, maturity help Vikings come from behind to beat Rebels By Dave Pearce The North Posey Viking football season did not start out exactly the way the coaches had envisioned…at least for awhile. But when the game-ending whistle blew, the Vikings and their coaches were proud of their accomplishment. They had come from 11 points down to defeat the South Spencer Rebels by a score of 35-17 on opening night. The game was closer than the score might indicate, especially in the first half. The Vikings got on the board first when senior Jourdan Cox went in from a yard out and the Vikings were up 6-0. But Coach Carl “Joe” Gengelbach has been in the coaching business for a long time. He knew that the Rebels would not go down without a fight. And they didn’t. “South Spencer is a pretty good football team,” Gengelbach said of the boys from Reo. “We knew they would play hard and we knew they would be solid on defense. The Lauer kid is a great football player and you have to know where he is all the time.” As a matter of fact, the Rebels put the next 17 points on the board, first on a 17-yard pass play from quarterback Walker Franklin to Jared Lauer. The Rebels then added a field goal with 3:05 showing on the first-quarter clock. Then with 1:03 showing in the quarter, Rebel Denver Burden shook loose for a 59-yard touchdown run and the Vikings found themselves staring at a 17-6 deficit about five minutes into the second quarter. But that’s when experience and maturity took over. “They had the ball twice with us down 17-6 and you got the ball back,” Gengelbach told the team in a fiery speech after the game. “You showed resiliency and you hunkered down and we owned the rest of the game for the most part.” With the Rebels facing a fourth-and-4 situation on the North Posey 28, the Rebels went for it. The Rebels were called for a false start and Nick Neidig came up with a big sack anyway. The Vikings declined the penalty and went to work from their own 37. Senior quarterback Colton Motz seemed to know when and where to distribute the ball as Wes Harness picked up seven and Jourdan Cox two. Motz kept the ball on third down and got outside for the first down. On first down, Harness got one before Cox broke it open on a little shuffle pass for a 7-yard gain. Motz then hit Jared Reidford on the numbers for another big gain and suddenly, the Vikings were knocking at the door. Harness added two more yards before, on fourth-and-2, Motz hit Neidig who was taken down inside the one yard line. Cox carried it in from the one to make it a 17-12 game. Motz then passed to Cox for the 2-point conversion and the Vikings were back to within a field goal at 17-14. The Vikings nearly caught the Rebels near the end of the first half when the Vikings recovered a Rebel fumble around mid-field but with only 36 seconds to work, the clock ran out before the Vikings could put any more points on the board. South Spencer led 17-14 at the half. The second half looked like it might start off as badly

North Posey quarterback Colton Motz gets excellent protection from his line during Friday night’s 35-17 comefrom-behind win over the South Spencer Rebels. Photo by Dave Pearce as the first as the kick-off was brought back nearly to midfield and a personal foul call gave the Rebels the ball on the North Posey 44 to start the second half. But the defense dug in, forcing a fumble on the Viking 23. “We talked to them in the dressing room about what they were going to have to do and we tried to make a few adjustments just from things we could see from the sidelines,” Gengelbach said. “I think we got a few of the jitters out. I was especially proud that we did not hang our heads when we got down by 11 and it’s easy for kids to get their dobbers down. But we have enough seniors this year to get the guys going and things worked out for us.” But the Viking offense could not sustain a drive and the Vikings were forced to punt at the 7:42 mark of the third period. But again the defense would come up big as the Vikings forced a fumble and Harness came up with the ball. The speedy junior took ball to the one before Motz scored on a quarterback keeper to give the Vikings back the lead, 21-17. From that point forward, the Vikings dominated the game. On the ensuing Rebel drive, Alex Goebel came up with a big interception on the Rebel 44. A big pass play to

Reidford and three more Harness carries and the Vikings were up 27-17. When Neidig added the extra point, they enjoyed a 28-21 lead. At that point, it was obvious that the less-experienced Rebels were rattled. They fumbled the ball on the kick-off return and Travis Reese recovered it on the 40. The Vikings moved the ball on down the field and on fourth-and-4 on the 34, Reidford was grabbed from behind to avoid a first-down catch and the interference call added 15 yards and an automatic first down. Motz then went back to Reidford for 10 before Harness ran over three defenders on his way into the end zone for the final touchdown of the night. Neidig’s extra point gave the Vikings what would be the final points of the game and a 35-17 win. A Neidig interception off a Goebel pass deflection helped keep the second-half shut-out intact. The Rebels were knocking on the door on the Viking 18 before the interception on a fourth-down situation. “I told them in there to enjoy this game tonight, tomorrow

Wildcats lack confidence early but rebound for blow-out By Steve Joos Once the Mount Vernon football team got comfortable, it easily ran away from the visiting Tell City Marksmen in Friday’s season opener. Craig Dick rushed for 101 yards, while Craig Isaac completed 12 of 13 passes for 244 yards and four touchdowns as the Cats jumped on the Marksmen in the second half, outscoring Tell City 35-7 in the second and third quarters en route to a 48-20 season-opening victory. It was in those middle quarters where the Wildcats put the game away offensively, but they needed some time to gel in the first half, according to coach Paul Maier. “I really felt that the first half, we didn’t look like we were real comfortable offensively,” Maier said. “We were making stupid mistakes, shot ourselves in the foot repeatedly, looked nervous and uncomfortable. We moved the ball on the ground, intentionally. We didn’t put the ball in the air, we wanted to give Craig (Isaac) a little more time to get comfortable under center. Once we got going there and really started doing all the things we wanted to do, the offense started clicking in the second half.” A sophomore (one of two on the varsity), Isaac was a little jittery at the outset. He did score the Cats’ first touchdown of the season on a one-yard run with 8:14 to go in the first quarter, but he also coughed up the ball on his own 19, which Ryan Dooley picked up and took in for a touchdown, giving Tell City a 7-6 advantage midway through the second period. That lead didn’t last for long, as just about three minutes later, Ty Ritzert stretched out to make a diving grab of a 32-yard pass from Issac, which gave the lead back to Mount Vernon. Isaac and Ritzert hooked up again, this time for a 66-yard play with 2:21 left before halftime which resulted in Mount Vernon’s third touchdown of the night. After two failed extra point kicks, the Cats went for two and the sophomore signalcaller connected with Brian Koch for a two-point conversion which put Mount Vernon up 20-7 and that was the halftime score. In the third quarter, the defense didn’t spend a lot of time on the field. They just seemed to come in, hold Tell City to three downs and out and then let the offense eat up most of the clock. Isaac connected with Ritzert for a six-yard scoring strike with just over five minutes gone in the second half and then ran in the two-point conversion himself, stretching the lead to 28-7.

Michael Rynkiewich gets to the outside and picks up big yardage during the first quarter of the Mount Vernon win over Tell City on Friday night. Photo by Dave Pearce After the defense stopped Tell City again, River VanZant returned a punt to the Wildcats’ 49-yard line. Mount Vernon also had to give up the ball after four plays, but not before Isaac found Jon Hoehn from 11 yards out for the second score of the period. The team’s last scoring drive of the third quarter came

yards on second and goal, and then Nick Theodosis booted in the extra point, stretching the lead to 41-7. While Isaac was getting comfortable, the Wildcat rushing attack was helping him out to the tune of 216 yards on the ground. Dick helped get the team into position, while Rynkiewich brought in his share of the mail with 75 and the touchdown. “Our ground game was OK,” Maier said. “There are a lot of things we need to improve on and our passing game, there’s a lot to improve on. It’s good to get a significant win and still identify a lot of things you need to get better at.” The defense shut down the Marksmen for three quarters, yielding 238 yards in total offense, most of it in the fourth quarter after the issue was mostly decided. Trent Nelson scored from eight yards out with less than three minutes going in the final period and then Brennan Malone connected with C.J. Rowe for an 11-yard scoring play with 36 seconds to go for Tell City’s other touchdowns of the night.

Marty’s Lost 156 lbs – WAY TO GO COACH! Just after the 2010 basketball season, I had friends come to me who were concerned about my health. I turned to Jan Schenk and The Perfect Plan. Jan taught me healthy eating habits. With The Perfect Plan I don’t feel hungry. From day one Jan said, “I want you to eat to make this work.” She not only taught me what to eat, she keeps me motivated and holds me accountable. Jan is my “coach”! I am so thankful she and her staff have come into my life. This is one of the best things I’ve ever done for myself. It has truly been a life-style change.

Vikings defeat South Spencer, from Page B1 and Sunday, but when they come back in on Monday, they need to forget about it,” Gengelbach said. “We have plenty of things still to work on and there’s a team down on the south end of the county that will be fired up for us on Friday night. It is such a good rivalry. I guarantee you that Mount Vernon will play as hard as they can for the entire 48 minutes.” Gengelbach said he hopes that his team’s balance can keep people honest a little better than last year’s squad. The Vikings finished with 114 yards on the ground and 154 in the air as Motz hit 18-of-25 passes with a pair of interceptions. His only touchdown was on the ground. Harness led the team with 91 yards on the ground in 24 carries with a pair of scores while Colton Martin had 18 yards. Cox had two touchdowns in his 11 yards on the ground but he also caught eight passes for 68 yards. Eric O’Risky carried twice for a yard. Besides Cox, Reidford caught five passes for 61 yards and Jacob Bender and Harness each caught a pair of passes. Neidig also caught a pass for 17 yards. Kick-off returns were also a factor as Harness had two for 76 yards and Reidford had two for 49 yards. Neidig averaged 32 yards on punts, kicked off six times, and had three extra points in addition to playing on both sides of the ball. “Wes and Jourdan are both three-year starters and they did a great job like you would expect,” Gengelbach concluded. “And I thought Colton did a great job of doing things within the offense. We didn’t panic and try to make plays that weren’t there.” The Vikings travel to Mount Vernon on Friday to face the county rival Wildcats. Mount Vernon defeated Tell City 48-20 on Friday night.

It takes everyone... North Posey quarterback Colton Motz follows a line surge to score against South Spencer on Friday night at North Posey High School. The Vikings fell behind 17-6 before showing resiliency and fighting back to claim a 35-17 win over the Rebels. The real test will come Friday night when the Viking hook up with county rivals North Posey for the first Annual Posey County News trophy. Photo by Dave Pearce

Big Brothers, Big Sisters need a hand in Posey County Big Brothers Big Sisters, or BBBS, of Posey County is planning to participate in three county events in September: Mount Vernon’s River Days, New Harmony’s Kunstfest, and Poseyville’s Autunmfest, to bring community awareness to the BBBS organization and to solicit interest in volunteers wanting to mentor. A major fundraiser, the nationally recognized, signature event Bowl for Kids’ Sake, is planned for Sunday, October 9, at Posey Lanes in Mount Vernon with many activities ongoing to make this happen. For this fundraiser, community members will form bowling teams, collect donations for BBBS of Posey County,

and then celebrate their success with a free t-shirt recognizing our sponsors and a free game of bowling. It is sure to be a great afternoon with an MC having fun with the bowlers, awarding prizes, and recognizing our county sponsors. Further information and team registration forms will be available the end of August and at all three of the county events in September. A silent auction will also be part of the bowling event with many items donated by our generous county community. Everyone is invited to check out the auction even if you do not plan to bowl! Currently, less than 4% of

Mount Vernon tennis team takes Washington Invite title Now, this is how to start a season. The Mount Vernon boys’ tennis team won three spots and took second at a fourth Saturday to claim the top spot at the Washington Invitational tournament. The championship followed a 5-0 win over visiting Reitz in the Wildcats’ season opener Tuesday. Ross Canada dispatched the Hatchets’ Cory Thompson 6-4, 6-2 to win the title at second singles, while the Wildcats swept the doubles to come in ahead of the hosts for first place overall. North Posey was fifth in the eight-team tournament. Layton Hopper and Seth Reeves combined for a 6-2, 6-2 win over the Vikings’ Drake Davenport and Jacob Britton at

first doubles, while Curt Crabtree and Hunter Wilson took the crown at second doubles with a 6-3,10-7 tiebreaker win over a pair from Washington. The Cats had to settle for second at first singles, where Angun Kshyab of Tell City was a 6-4, 6-0 winner over Jevin Redman. It was the second team of Crabtree with Wilson, a freshman who is among a number of first-year players coach Vicki Oelmer is looking to for help this season. The Marksmen were third in the tournament, followed by Mater Dei, which had the third singles champion, Mike Elpers. Boonville, Central and Linton-Stockton rounded out the field. Oelmer felt that the team was practicing with more confidence and that may have showed Tuesday, when Mount Vernon opened by whitewashing Reitz 5-0. The coach said that it was hard to tell how the opener compared with the team’s recent scrimmage at Castle because of differences in the two teams’ talent level (Castle is one of the area’s better squads, while Reitz is in a rebuilding mode after losing several key players from last season), but the team played hard and the improved confidence was noticeable against the visiting Panthers.

“Even against that level of team that Reitz has, they played hard,” Oelmer said. “I think if we had taken the level of confidence these guys played with last year, they would have lost more games. We still would have won, but we would have lost more games, or we would have faltered. This year, when we got ahead, we stayed ahead and just kept pushing all the way through.” That was the sign of an improving team, Oelmer said, one that will follow though and not just relax with a lead. The singles came through as expected, as Redman posted a 6-0, 6-0 win over Ben Campbell, while Canada was a 6-1, 6-1 winner over Damon Kuhn and Sheffer downed Austin Loveless 6-2, 6-1 to sweep the singles’ spots, while Wilson showed a great deal of promise when he and Crabtree teamed up for a 6-3, 6-0 win over Garnett Goebel and Jeremy Sandefur at second doubles. “Hunter did a good job,” Oelmer said. “He played well for a freshman who had to overcome some freshman nerves playing on the varsity and playing a varsity position.” Hopper and Reeves were 6-2, 6-1 winners over Luke Beavin and Blake Brooks at first doubles. The reserve Wildcats also shellacked Reitz 6-0 in their match.

Wildcats improve but still can’t find a win About the best thing that can be said about the Mount Vernon boys’ soccer team’s game at Heritage Hills Saturday is that it was closer than the season opener. And the Wildcats scored. The Cats are still looking for their first win of the season after dropping

a 4-2 decision to the Patriots Saturday at Lincoln City. That followed an 8-0 loss at North Tuesday. Nick Theodosis and Michael Cannato scored the Cats’ first goals of the season against Heritage Hills, but it wasn’t enough as Mount Vernon fell to 0-2 on the season.

The Cats ran into the terrible twos Tuesday night at North, as three different Huskies scored two goals each in an 8-0 rout of Mount Vernon. Braden Acton, Brandon Frank and Malcolm Cook each scored two goals to pace North, while Acton and Frank each booted in a pair of assists.

Lady Rappites must communicate to earn wins By Steve Joos What we have here is a failure to communicate. Which is one of the main factors in a rough start for the New Harmony volleyball team? Heading into Monday’s match with Carmi, the Lady Rappites were 0-3 on the season after losing to three Evansville schools, including a three-set loss to Mater Dei in Friday’s home opener. That defeat followed

losses on the road to Bosse and Central. The Lady Rappites played better Thursday night, but they still have some bugs to work out. Like not talking to each other on the court. That was coach Liz Prewitt’s main concern after New Harmony’s 25-12, 2513, 25-10 loss at Central. “We did all right,” the coach said. “We just need to work a few kinks out. We

need to communicate.” Lack of communication was a recurring theme as Prewitt discussed her team’s first two matches of the season. She did feel that the Lady Rappites improved despite a more one-sided score against the Lady Bears. The team served better and some of their passes were better than they were at Bosse. Each member of the team did better in spots, Prewitt

Mount Vernon River Days wants to see your talent Do you sing? Play a guitar? Strum a banjo? Do a magic act? Dance? If you do, there’s a place for you to perform at the Mount Vernon River Days; and if you’re very good, you could go home with as much as $100 in prize money. A Variety/Talent Show is scheduled for Friday, September 9 from 7 to 9 p.m. on the main stage on Mount Vernon’s riverfront, accord-

ing to Kay Kilgore, Events & Entertainment Chair. A second place prize of $50 will be awarded, and the third-place winner will receive $25. The Talent Show will take place on the main stage on the Riverfront. Those who are interested may contact Kay Kilgore at 483-2922 or email her at kay.kilgore@insightbb.com.

added, but it all came back to one thing. “We just need to communicate,” she said. “That’s it. Communication, that’s it.” Gretchen Schnautz had five aces and 10 kills for the Lady Bears. The season didn’t get off to a good start Tuesday, as New Harmony fell 25-14, 25-20, 25-17. Khynrsee Madison registered three kills, seven aces and nine block in leading the Lady Bosse Bulldogs to the win. New Harmony does not have a reserve team this year.

LEGALS

Mount Vernon woman charged with theft, forgery felonies By Dave Pearce A Mount Vernon woman has been accused of two counts of Class D felony theft and two counts of Class C felony forgery. Sally A Denning, 47, of Mount Vernon, turned herself in at the Posey County Sheriff’s office last week following an investigation that was the result of audits of books from the Mount Vernon River Days Association. In mid-April, the acting president, Larry Williams, of the 21st Century Leadership, Ltd., better known as the Mount Vernon River Days, noticed some questionable transactions involving Denning, who was serving as treasurer at the time.

Williams then contacted local Certified Public Accountant Ron Bennett requesting that he conduct an audit of the account. Banking account documents were obtained and were forwarded to Bennett, who indicated after the audit that he found approximately $10,600 in questionable transactions within the account. Williams disclosed the information to Kenneth Rose, an investigator with the Posey County Prosecutor’s office. Williams told Rose that the River Days Executive Board members consisting of himself, Becky Higgins, Judy Whitten, and Kay Kilgore met on May 25, 2011 and the group au-

thorized Williams to file a police report regarding the audit. Williams said back in mid-April, Denning was contacted via email and advised that an audit was going to be performed and she was asked to provide him with all banking records, cancelled checks, list of money donors, check stubs, deposit tickets, etc. Williams said Denning responded that she would provide the records the following weekend. Williams told Rose that he did receive some records but not the required records for conducting an audit. He said he again contacted Denning on April 21 by email advising her that all the required documents had not been

provided. Williams told police that Denning responded by saying she provided him with all the documentation that she had. In the same email, she also advised him that she was stepping down as treasurer of River Days, citing she no longer had the time available to fill the position. In turn, Rose conducted several interviews over the next three months with individuals who had donated money to River Days as well as individuals involved with the Southwestern Indiana Chamber of Commerce, where Denning had previously served as executive vice president. During one of the interviews, Denning told Rose

that she was to have received $1,000 a year from the Chamber as a retirement benefit. Denning told Rose that she admitted to falsely filling out additional bogus Chamber checks for $1,000 each, cashing them and keeping the money for herself. She then agreed to meet Rose again the next day to give handwriting examples. When Denning got to the office on August 11, to voluntarily give the handwriting samples, she told Rose that would not be necessary and that she had something to tell him. She proceeded to tell him that she had forged a signature on the retirement checks and had deposited those

checks into her personal account. She continued by telling Rose that there were some other Chamber checks that were actually bogus pay checks made out by her and she kept the money once she cashed those checks. Other irregularities including other checks and several ATM transactions are still under investigation but on August 15, 2011, witnesses Rose, George Morgan, Williams and Bennett were on hand and Posey County Prosecutor Travis Clowers signed the affidavit for probable cause for arrest. The warrant was signed by Judge S. Brent Almon. Denning was released upon posting $10,000 cash bond.

Wildcats, Vikings to vie for first Posey County News trophy

Consolidated Grain & Barge Inc.

For the first time ever, there will be more on the line than just bragging rights when North Posey and Mount Vernon meet this week at Memorial Field. With the approval of athletic directors from both schools, the Posey County News will present the first of what Owner/Publisher Dave Pearce hopes to be an annual award for the winning school’s trophy case. “I spoke with both Gary Redman at Mount Vernon and Virgil Ferguson at North Posey and both were agreeable that it would be fine for the Posey County News to design a traveling trophy that will be awarded to the win-

ning team each year,” Pearce said. “It will be a traveling trophy that will remain in the possession of the winning school each year until the annual game is played.” Pearce added that it just gives recognition to the school who is able to accomplish a win in such a heated county rivalry. “I consider it a pleasure that the schools have allowed us to be a small part of the winning school’s celebration since our coverage includes both of the county schools’ football teams as well as New Harmony’s athletic programs,” Pearce concluded. “May the best team win.

Vikings could be ‘decent’ football team if all parts come together

By Dave Pearce The North Posey Vikings got off to a shaky start on Friday night against South Spencer. But then they showed perhaps what Coach Carl “Joe” Gengelbach believes is one of this year’s teams greatest attributes when they got down. “I think our strength is going to be experience,” Gengelbach said. “They were excited early-on in the game but that’s OK. We have seen some things that we have done well and we saw some things we need to work on.” Leadership will be a key if this year’s team is to be able to contend for a Pocket Athletic Conference title or a Sectional title in a loaded field. “I think our running game and our pass protection was adequate and I thought we played very aggressive on both sides of the ball,” Gengelbach said. Gengelbach equated a passing attack to bird hunting with a guy running down the field and having to lead him. But in football, if you lead him too much, the other team can end up with the ball. “I have always told our quarterbacks that they are not going to hit every one of them,” he said. “Just try to throw it in a place to where no one else is going to come up with it if our guy can’t. It takes good timing. Throwing the football is one of the hardest things to work on in football.” But if this year’s team is to be successful, Gengelbach knows his team is going to have to be able to run the ball and throw the ball equally effectively to keep teams from keying on one offense or the other. “Colton Motz, Jourdan Cox, Bryce Koester, Tim East, Curt Seibert, Jared Reidford and Wes Harness are all three-year starters,” Gengelbach said. “They have played together for a long time,” He added, “Then there are other seniors who have come together and got experience last year. Our other seniors, Cody and Casey Voelker, Derek Voegel, Travis Reese, and Aaron Hensley have done a great job of showing leadership in the preseason.” “These are kids who have been together for a long time and they have great attitudes and they give our younger players people to look up to,” he continued. “They have done a great job of helping our younger kids.” This season’s team captains are Seibert, Motz, Reidford, and Cox have taken their responsibilities seriously. “They did a good job of keeping the attitudes up during the hot weather,” Gengelbach said. “They provide leadership and if the kids want to excel, they have the chance.” In the air, Motz has a good corps of receivers from which to choose. Reidford, Cox, Harness, Nick Neidig and Cody and Casey Voelker are all capable receivers who can be inserted when the situation calls for it. On the ground, the tough and speedy Harness will be accompanied by an equally tough backfield consisting of Cox and an up-and-coming Colton Martin.

North Posey defensive men attempt to help the referee make the call after the Vikings recovered this fumble on Friday night. “Reidford is a very good receiver and was all conference last year. Nick (Neidig) is growing into the position this year. They are two good kids on the outside,” Gengelbach said. “Then with Jourdan Cox and Mitchell Kuhn and the Bender boy catches the ball well, too. We feel like our skill people are there and our linemen have come light-years since last season.” Gengelbach said that with this team’s experience and skill, a balanced offense and an effective defense is achievable and that can add up to a very good season. “We are hoping that everything comes together for us and that we can stay away from injuries,” Gengelbach said. One question going into this season is the kicking game. It was thought to be solid, but took a hit when senior Nic Crumbacher went down in the summer to a knee injury. The talented kicker will be unable to compete in either football or soccer for his senior year. Jace Gentil and Neidig have done most of the kicking in the early season. “Nic was really a good kicker and we are really going to miss him,” Gengelbach said. “Neidig will be kicking early but we want to work hard with Jace because he is a junior and we want to have him ready for this year and next. But in the event of injury, depth may also provide a big key for this year’s team as this year’s team will not have nearly as many players playing on both sides of the ball all the time as recent teams in the past. 812.831.5108 “I told my wife this year that as hot as it was, this was probably the most pleasant two-a-days that we have had for a while. The kids didn’t complain and all of them were here,” Gengelbach said. “If all the components come together, this could be a pretty good football team.”

The Wildcats will have to replace eight starters on offense this season, but they have eight returning defensive starters back. “We expect that we’re going to get better each week,” coach Paul Maier said. “We expect a lot out them, we expect great conditioning, we expect them to get better in the weight room, so those are the kind of things we expect and we expect them to work on things day by day.” The offense looked good in the team’s recent scrimmage at South Spencer, but it’s also somewhat young and inexperienced. “We played about how we’ve been practicing,” Maier said after the scrimmage. “We’ve been practicing fairly hard and I was fairly pleased with how things went. Physically, I thought we were a physical team. I was pleased with our defense, we were pleased with our run game. I was fairly happy.” Having eight returnees on defense made it easier for the defense to communicate and go after the ball, Maier added. The Cats have taken advantage of moderate weather in practice and have been doing a good job of preparing for the season, Maier said, but as for strengths and weaknesses, it might be wiser to check back with the coach as the season progresses, despite the considerable number of defensive returnees. The team ran the ball well at South Spencer, and will use backs Michael Rynkiewich, Craig Dick and Austin Guthrie often, as least earlier in the season. Sophomore quarterback Craig Issac was a little nervous at the outset of the scrimmage, but once he settled down, the underclass signal caller also performed well. “Really, for us this year, it comes down to everyone,” MaiMount Vernon sophomore quarterback Craig Isaac scores the Wildcats’ first touchdown of the season on a quar- er said. “We don’t have anyone who’s not key.

Young Wildcats’ growing year could be like locomotive...slow and rough By Steve Joos “We’ve looked pretty good. It’s been slow going, but we’ve gradually gotten better as each practice has gone by, so we’ll see how that translates into game time.” That’s how Mount Vernon boys’ soccer coach Travis Kaiser sums up his team’s effort as the Wildcats prepare for the new season. Inexperience will be a key concern for the Cats, although the team will be made up of players who have been together as a group for quite some time. What the Cats seem to lack in seasoning, they make up for in familiarity, the coach added. “The majority of the team has played together for the last four, five, six, seven years,” Kaiser said. “Hopefully, the cohesiveness of knowing each other will be a strength for us since we’ll know where we need to be,” the coach said. “We should be strong on the defensive third of the field, but our big concern is going to be our midfield and up front right now.” Nick Theodosis and Ryan Pharr are key members of the team, playing in the middle third of the field, while Seth Wolfe will be counted on, as will some other players up front. Kaiser is hoping that these players will be moving the team in the right direction as the season progresses. Washington and Jasper will be the teams to beat in the Big Eight Conference, as always, but Kaiser also thinks the entire conference will be a challenge this season, as the Cats try to build on last year’s fifth-place finish, adding that the Big Eight keeps getting stronger. “We’ve got good eight or nine games that will be pretty tough for us,” Kaiser said. “We’ve got to be prepared.” With a new class system for soccer, the Cats will definitely have to be prepared, especially with a Mount Vernon in a Sectional heavy on stronger Evansville schools. As a team, Kaiser wants to see his team improve, while he wants to see his players develop personally as well. But considering the team’s lack of experience, the Mount Vernon coach would be please with at least seven wins and maybe as many as nine. That depends on how well the team comes together.

Early success raises expectation bar for North Posey boys’ soccer By Dave Pearce North Posey High School boys soccer coach could probably be termed a bit of a perfectionist. After sitting out last season, Andy Hines is back to lead the team again this year and despite a 2-0 start, he still sees a lot of room for improvement. The 2-1 win over Bosse, Hines saw as somewhat a bit of luck as he felt his team was outplayed by the Bulldogs for much of the contest. Hoewever, they don’t grade them; they just look at the final score. But that’s not always the case, especially when it comes to coaching. Hines does grade his team’s performance and wants to see improvement from them as the year goes along. Actually, he would like to be able to see it from game to game. Hines has a fairly large contingent of seniors despite the loss of Nic Crumbacher, a scoring threat and defensive ace from last season. He was injured over the summer and will most likely not play at all this season. The team also graduated perhaps the best goalkeeper in school history in Rylan Gentil, who will play college soccer this season. “Ty Stock, one of our captains, has played for as long as I can remember. He and Scott Schapker, Ryan Pritchett, Kyle Swope, Nathan Embrey, and Alex Kelley were on the team I had when I was here two years ago. They are our big-time experienced players. Junior captain Jace Gentil brings a calm demeanor to the team.” In the second game of the season, a weather-delayed game against Reitz at Double Cola fields in Evansville this past week, the Vikings and the Panthers played to a scoreless tie in the first half before the Viking defense wore down the Panthers and Ty Stock was able to find the back of the net twice in the second half to give the Vikings the win. The win put the team at 2-0 on the young season. They have scored four goals and have given up only one. Both wins have come against Evansville Southern Indiana Athletic Conference teams. “I think Ty and Alex bring leadership to our team because the kids look up to them,” Hines said. “They help bring the hard work and discipline. Kyle Swope has been our main “target” player for the past three years and he is the “go to” guy with tons of speed.” While Stock got the pair of goals against Reitz, Swope got the pair against Bosse. Hines believes one of the opportunities this team has is to play together as a team and take the individuality out of it. If they are able to do that, Hines feels his team can play with anyone they will face on their schedule. “When we want to play, we have played very good soccer,” Hines said. “But at times, we seem to go on vacation. What we really need to work on is just being consistent. Sometimes we can get lulled into this playing kickball mentality where we just run and gun with no real purpose and playing individually. We are not going to win games if we don’t play together as a team.”

Members of North Posey varsity soccer team are, in front, row B. Blankenberger, R. Heathcotte, C. Simpson,and M. Elpers. Row 2. S. Burkes, N. Emery, K. Swope, J. Brandenstein, T. Stock, and D.

Wittgen Hines says there are several younger players on the team who are going to see some significant playing time. Michael Helfert and Shawn Burks are improving in practice. Reed Heathcotte has been a little banged up, but he is the center mid-field along with Ty Stock. Hines says that Heathcotte can become a good player if he keeps a good attitude. The team picked up a bit of good news on the first day of school when a Brazilian foreign exchange student enrolled who could help the team once he gets enough practices in to become eligible to play. “He has a great touch and if we can get to where we play the ball to him and he can play the ball off to Swope or Stock, he can help us tremendously,” Hines said. Before the season started, Hines was convinced that the defense was actually going to be a weakness. “Speedwise, we have a very fast line up-top with our sophomore Ben Blankenberger. We work hard up top but in the midfield and in the back, that is where we have a weakness,” Hines said. “We spend a lot of time on that.” To be successful, Hines said it is pretty simple. “We just have to play together as a team consistently and keep possession of the ball,” he said. “When we knock the ball around and play simply, we are as good as anyone in our conference. But when we play individually, we are terrible.”

Lady Rappites seek better communication What we have here is a failure to communicate. Which is one of the main factors in a rough start for the New Harmony volleyball team? Heading into Monday’s match with Carmi, the Lady Rappites were 0-3 on the season after losing to three Evansville schools, including a three-set loss to Mater Dei in Friday’s home opener. That defeat followed losses on the road to Bosse and Central. The Lady Rappites played better Thursday night, but they still have some bugs to work out. Like not talking to each other on the court.

That was coach Liz Prewitt’s main concern after New Harmony’s 25-12, 25-13, 25-10 loss at Central. “We did all right,” the coach said. “We just need to work a few kinks out. We need to communicate.” Lack of communication was a recurring theme as Prewitt discussed her team’s first two matches of the season. She did feel that the Lady Rappites improved despite a more one-sided score against the Lady Bears. The team served better and some of their passes were better than they were at Bosse.

Amazing Job Teams!

Each member of the team did better in spots, Prewitt added, but it all came back to one thing. “We just need to communicate,” she said. “That’s it. Communication, that’s it.” Gretchen Schnautz had five aces and 10 kills for the Lady Bears. The season didn’t get off

to a good start Tuesday, as New Harmony fell 25-14, 25-20, 25-17. Khynrsee Madison registered three kills, seven aces and nine block in leading the Lady Bosse Bulldogs to the win. New Harmony does not have a reserve team this year.

Eight Viking seniors look to make noise in PAC, sectional By Dave Pearce What’s that noise coming from the North Posey High School volleyball team practice? It just could be the buzz of excitement surrounding high expectations and high quality of play from this year’s edition of the North Posey Viking volleyball team. The team consists of eight seniors who would love nothing better than to leave yet another mark on school history. As sophomores, they set a school record for wins, losing only once that season at the reserve level. “We’ve always had good kids but sometimes you just don’t have the team chemistry that we have with this year’s kids,” Coach Gary Gentil said. “I am just ecstatic with this group so far this year.” Team shirts exude team spirit as the seniors decided to have “We walk onto this floor together” printed on the backs of the shirts. Despite adversity, this team has vowed to win and to lose as a team and try and keep internal bickering to a minimum. “Seven of our eight seniors played solid roles for the varsity last year,” Gentil said. “Megan Cumbee played some varsity and some jayvee. But she has worked really hard in the

She has earned her spot and she’s doing a nice job.” Two juniors are also seeing significant playing time. “Jordan Butler is playing crucial minutes for us this year,” he continued. “She played a little for us last year and Bri Brown did the same thing. They both have worked extremely hard and it shows.” In the Vikings’ first outing

of the season, they won the first game against highly-regarded Heritage Hills before faltering in the next three by narrow margins. The Patriots went on to win the Evansville Memorial Invitational over the weekend. But if nothing else, this group has left its mark already as they followed up the season-opening loss by coming back from 2-0 down to defeat Castle 3-2 for the varsity’s first win ever over the Class 4A perennial power SIAC Knights. When asked to talk about his seniors, a twinkle came into the eyes of the coach. “This is the sport Caitlin Herrmann loves,” Gentil said. “She has really done quite well and she works really hard. These girls work so hard that they spoil me.” But Herrmann, at 6-feet-1, has provided solid blocking and excellent power hitting early in the season. “Wendi Simpson is a very powerful hitter,” Gentil said. “The only thing with Wendi is that we have to keep her confident. She is a very talented young lady who will try to do anything we ask her to do. In the win over Castle, she just opened up and let it rip and did a tremendous job.” Deana Lindauer is, percentage-wise, the team’s

most consistent kill person on the front line. “She has played quality volleyball for us since her sophomore year,” Gentil said. “She is doing a really good job for us. She had an outstanding night as she did not make a single dig error in the back row in the win over Castle. She does a tremendous job in the front row, as well. She also leads the team in serving percentage.” But what would a team be without a setter? And this year’s Viking team has one of the best in Kendall Reidford. “She is doing a tremendous job despite the fact that we are asking an awful lot of her,” Gentil said. “She has no back-up setter on the varsity roster. There are a couple of different places where the hitters want the ball and Kendall adjusts very well.” Jordan Wassmer has shined in the back row so far this year but is beginning to improve in other areas. “She is starting to get her footwork and her anticipation back into volleyball and she had a very good softball year for us last year,” Gentil said. “She is really doing well for us. She had a really nice outing against Castle also.” Kelsey Everley is playing a double role on this year’s

team. “She is dealing with a major knee injury that will require surgery after the season is over,” Gentil said. “We are playing a little deep back with her and a little short back with her to help her for mobility. She has adapted to that very well and is already doing a very good job for us.” The team’s libero is senior Megan Redman, who gives up on no ball before it has hit the floor, no matter where it is in the gymnasium. “After the Heritage Hills game, we had one of best compliments you can have from an opposing coach about Megan,” Gentil relayed. “Their coach looked at me and said ‘I don’t want to face that young lady again’. Megan just runs down everything and has done that for two years for us now.” This year’s team also brings to the floor confidence and an element of intelligence and court-savvy that only experience can provide. “We struggled with this group last year on knowing what to hit and when to hit it,” Gentil said. “But this year they have just learned the game. They had a tremendous freshman year and an even better sophomore year. Last year they did pretty well with things but there

was a lot of learning involved. This year they seem to have put it all together.” Gentil said this year’s expectations would not be nearly so high if it weren’t for the work that reserve coach Leah Stormont has put into the team. “They really love being around her and she just does a tremendous job,” Gentil said. “But I know this group of girls and they will work hard for anyone who coaches them. They put everything they have in the game.” Gentil wrapped it up by saying that his team will not be bigger (taller) than any team they will face all season. However, something came to the forefront in the big win over Castle. “’Don’t let people judge us by our height or our age, but let people judge us by our heart,’ is what this team is known for,” Gentil said. “I have had these girls for four straight years and I wasn’t sure what to expect because of their lack of height. They are a special group. They understand the game. They help each other immensely. I have never had a group to complain about, but sometimes you have a group that wants to set themselves apart. I think this is that group.”

School is back in session, please drive safely Schools around the county are opening their doors to start the 2011-2012 school year. The Posey County Sheriff’s Department wants everyone to remember that buses will be on the roads affecting your morning commute, and children will be out on the streets walking or riding bikes to and from school. Sheriff Greg Oeth says students aren’t the only ones who have to get back into the school routine, he wants to remind all drivers to be responsible and Keep ‘Em Safe; watch for the children. Be very vigilant, have an awareness of area school zones and crosswalks. Drive alert with a readiness to yield to children when they come into view. Drivers Tips to Keep School Children Safe •Limit distractions such as cell phones, CD players or other devices that cause you to take your eyes off the road. Research shows that taking your eyes off the road for just two seconds doubles your chances of crashing. •Stay Alert and slow down in or near school and residential areas. Don’t rush into and out of driveways. Expect pedestrians on the sidewalk, especially around schools and in neighborhoods.

Lady Vikings inexperienced but willing to put it all on the line By Dave Pearce The North Posey High School girls’ soccer team didn’t lose a whole lot of people to graduation last season. At the same time, graduation took away most of the scoring threats the team had and a good deal of the defense. However, Coach Scott Butrum knows that in high school sports, you do your best with the hand you are dealt and he sees a great deal of opportunity for the ladies who have chosen to be a part of this year’s soccer team. “The three center strength people of the team from last year have graduated, but I believe we have some people who can step up,” Butrum said of this year’s squad. “We have a good group of incoming freshmen and I think it will be a rebuilding year. But as long as we are improving from the first time we step on the field until the season is over, that’s all we can ask for.” Seniors Sam Wittgen and Loren Meredith will look to give guidance to the young team. They serve as the team captains. Also back are forwards Kendra Brandenstein and Brianna Perry. “I think that combination up front could work into a pretty good combination as the year goes along,” Butrum said. “They are going to have to pick up the scoring for us.” The girls played two games before the Fall Sports Extravaganza section was published, falling 9-5 at Mount Vernon before being shut out by Mater Dei. But the team showed promise at times. “I think can be a pretty good team on the offensive side but I know we have a lot of work to do on the defensive side,” Butrum said. Butrum said his team must learn to clear the ball out of the danger zone if they are going to be successful this season. Also, in the game against Mater Dei, the girls gave up at least three goals directly off corner kicks, something that makes the coach cringe. But he admits he must remember that his team is young and for the most part, inexperienced. So instead of having this group of youngsters making individual runs, he will choose to attack as a team this season. “We just won’t play as many long balls,” Butrum said. “I think we got used to doing that with the girls we had up front last year. This year’s personnel simply does not lend itself to that style of play.”

Butrum But Butrum knows that there are good young players developing in the North Posey system and he sees the program building toward a bright future. “The five freshmen who are coming in as a group this year are probably the best five freshmen we have seen in awhile,” Butrum said. “Maddie Koester, Savannah King, Erica Lewis, Josie Woolems, and Mackenzie Orlik are going to be very good soccer players before they leave North Posey.” Potential is a good word but Butrum knows it is not easily achieved. Hard work and commitment must accompany it for it to be reached. He worries about the young players being able to match up physically with the juniors and seniors they will be facing.

Lady Rappites look to build with young, talented players By Steve Joos New Harmony volleyball coach Emily Prewitt likes the way her team has been working in practice, but also knows that there’s going to be a lot of work that needs to be done in order for the Lady Rappites to get better this season. “We’ve got a lot of young talent,” Prewitt said. “We lost six seniors last year, we have one senior this year, two freshmen and the rest are sophomores and juniors. The rest of them are really young, really raw still, but we’re looking good.” In fact, the team is looking a lot better than Prewitt though they might by this time, according to the coach. Abby Deckard is the lone returning senior, while Kendyl Wilson and Jessica Deckard are the freshmen. The rest of the team’s key personnel include Morgan Mathews, the team’s strong outside hitter, while Alyssa Scherzinger joins Wilson at setter and Kelsey Owen is in the

middle, but with just a week and a half of practice under their belts heading into the first week of the season, the Lady Rappites still have some places to solidify on the court. Serving will one of the team’s big weaknesses, while passing will be the main strength, the coach said, adding that the team, has been working on its passing during most of preseason practice. Prewitt rates Bosse (the team’s season opener) as a tough opponent, mainly because of the size of the school and the first-match jitters a young New Harmony team might face. Improvement will be the main thing Prewitt will be looking for this season. “We have a lot of things to go over,” she said. “We just have a lot of simple stuff, like talking and moving our feet that we need to work on.” That’s to be expected with a young team, but the Lady Rappites seem to be coming along.

Drive Safely, from Page C8 •Stop at stop signs. It sounds obvious, but research shows that more than one third of drivers roll through stop signs in school zones or neighborhoods. •Drive with your headlights on - even during the day - so children and other drivers can see you. •Always stop for school buses that are loading/unloading students. •Pay particular attention near schools during the morning and afternoon hours and plan ahead. Leave early for your destination and

build extra time for congestion. •Practice extra caution in adverse weather conditions. It is everyone’s responsibility to ensure our children are safe as they travel to and from school. Sheriff Oeth says if you observe a vehicle driving recklessly in a school area, or near a school bus, report the license number to police by calling 838-1320. Take a few moments to review safety tips with your children so they can have an enjoyable and successful school year.

of the contest and Butrum said he could see an air of confidence with the talented junior on the field. “Two sports is tough to do and I wanted to see her come out,” Butrum said. “Allie Elpers decided not to come out this year so she would work on her softball skills and Kaylen Lohman did not come out this year. Those losses hurt us in the midfield defensive side.” But again, that opens the door for the younger players to get experience and to build the program. “If may be a building year for us,” Butrum said. “They definitely know what we expect out of them and as long as they continue to improve as the season goes along, it will be a successful year for us.”

Young Lady Vikings making quick progress in early season By Dave Pearce The North Posey Lady Vikings did not even field a golf team until a couple of years ago. Last year they won the Pocket Athletic Conference title and advanced an individual out of the sectional to the regional. So how does the school’s first and only girls’ golf coach Kevin Wassmer follow it up? So far this season, the team has played in three Invitationals, winning one and finishing in the upper half of the other two, despite losing two seniors to graduation and having only five girls out for a team. The team has won all but one dual meet. But everyone has to contribute, literally. Without five players, a school cannot field a team. The team won the Mount Vernon Invitational, coming back to beat several teams who had finished above them in the Gibson Southern Invitational just a few days before. Over the weekend, the Lady Vikes were in the hunt up until the last few scores were posted but still finished third out of eight teams at the Vincennes Invitational. “We are doing well so far,” Wassmer said of his team. “We were right in it all the way Saturday. We had a really good chance to win that thing, but we are still getting better.” The team is led by returning top golfers Maggie Camp and Allsion Koester, who play in the No. 1 and No. 2 spots, respectively. “Maggie has been our most consistent scorer and has been medalist at two invitationals so far,” Wassmer said of the Viking junior. “Maggie’s strength is her driving, and she gets it out there pretty good and can usually hit a short iron into the green. She is getting better and better. Allison Koester, who qualified for the regional as an individual last season, is playing the No. 2 spot. “Allison has a pretty good all-around game,” Wassmer said of Koester. “She hits her irons really well and her driver really well. We’ve got to get better on and around the greens with her. If we can do that, she can do as well as she did last year. Allison, by the end of the year, is going to be playing real well.” Holding down the three spot is Taylor Patton. “Taylor has really good ability and has a nice golf swing,” Wassmer said of Patton. “The thing we have to work with is working toward more consistency. She has to quit throwing away shots from inside 30 or 40 yards. And she still needs so work on her short game but Taylor has done a really nice job.” The No. 4 and No. 5 spots are being held down by girls who are experiencing golf for the first time in their lives. Kendall Crowder is playing No. 4 and Shelby Ackerman is at No. 5. “Kendall is brand new to the game and her greatest asset is her golf swing,” Wassmer said. “She has a tremendous golf swing. She is just still new to the game so every situation to her is brand new. She is a sophomore.” “Shelby is improving all the time and her golf swing continues to get better,” Wassmer said of Crowder’s classmate and the team’s No. 5 golfer. “She has never had any offi-

Lady Wildcats are young but competitive By Steve Joos Three seniors and four sophomores. That’s the roster for this season’s Mount Vernon girls’ golf team. It’s a mixed bag of midclassmen this season, with some very experienced seniors and some fairly raw underclassmen. “The sophomores are really raw and rookies,” coach Dave Bell said. “They’ve been thrown to the wolves and they’ve really done a nice job.” Consistency is very important in golf and the Lady Wildcats are having trouble with that, especially the sophomores, but Bell says the team is working hard and has show a good attitude despite enduing some

very hot weather during preseason practice. “I don’t think we did as much this summer as probably we should have,” Bell said. “Kendyl (Bourne) played probably every day this summer, so she was in good shape leg-wise, but I think (the early part of the season) showed that they weren’t in as good a shape.” Bourne and fellow seniors Kayleigh Albright and Bailey Ash will be the team’s strengths. Albright is playing well in spite of a knee injury that will require postseason surgery, while Ash is showing a great deal of improvement, while Bourne has been the team’s top golfer for the last two seasons. All three have played four years and

are showing plenty of experience and leadership, according to Bell. The baptism by fire (actually, more like a baptism by extreme heat and humidity) that the sophomores have been put through is a major weakness. “(The sophomores) are going out there and they’re going to have to compete whether they’re ready or not,” Bell said. “Kelsey Moye has done a really nice job and then she gets tired, then Haley Salaman goes out, does a really nice job and she gets tired. Our other two sophomores are Brooke Gwinn and Emily Searcy. They’re young and it’s a baptism by fire and there’s nothing we can do about it.” Bell likes the team’s per-

sonality and attitude this season, adding that the team is having fun. The only thing hotter than the weather the Lady Cats have been practicing in will be some of the competition. Perennial Evansville powerhouses Memorial and North will be tough, as will Jasper in the Big Eight. Bell thinks his team can compete, but the lack of experienced players might hurt. Expectations are still high, however. “I think we have a pretty good chance of getting out of the Sectional,” Bell said. “If we don’t do it as a team, we have some individuals who can get out, but I’d like to see us do it as a team.” Bourne has a good chance of making a postseason run as an individual, the coach said, adding that the Lady Cats have a shot at one of the top three spots in the Big Eight (maybe second or third, considering Jasper’s strength). “So far, it’s been enjoyable,” Bell said. “Right now, we’re going to keep plugging along and trying to get better each time out. We’re going to keep trying to get better by the conference meet and postseason.” The Lady Cats have some experience and they some underclassmen who are getting a quick education and they have to compete. Ready or not.

Cross country teams show increased numbers, dedication By Dave Pearce The North Posey boys and girls cross country teams are excited about the potential of this year’s squads. With the graduation of North Posey’s 4-year mainstay Hunter Motz, boys’ coach Nick Berry is looking for someone to step up to the task of being the team’s physical and spiritual leader. So far, however, things have remained fairly “packed in.” “On the boys’ side, we have a lot of youth,” Berry said, describing the team. “We have a lot of freshmen and sophomores and a couple of juniors.” But from Berry’s perspective, that’s how teams and programs are built, with young athletes. “We will get to work with these young people, we will get to work with them for a couple more years,” Berry said. “We don’t have an overabundance of speed but we have hard workers and are looking forward to reaching our potential.” Berry said that cross country runners show their commitment perhaps more obviously than in some other sports. “Anyone who is willing to come out here at 6:30 in the morning throughout the week and run, that pretty much says it,” Berry said. “That isn’t most people’s idea of an enjoyable morning.” Especially in the July heat this summer, when the team was hitting it the hardest. “I respect a kid like that,” Berry said. “Most of them come out and bust their butts every day.” There is one senior on the team who can help provide leadership. Ty Shemwell will take that position. The only junior on the team is Will Heldt. So the rest of the runners are jostling for position. “I can’t put a specific order on our team right now,” Berry said. “Everyone is still finding their pace. We didn’t have summer conditioning like a lot of cross

So it will be a fight for first, second, and third in every meet that we have,” Berry said. The team thus far has pretty much run in a pack and that keeps competition and camaraderie working hand-in-hand, which is what the coach likes to see. “as long as they work hard attempting to improve, that will be our focus,” Berry said. The North Posey girls’ cross country team has grown since last year and so have the numbers out for the team. That is just fine with girls’ coach Lisa Kuhn. “We have quite a few girls out…our numbers are up,” the coach said with excitement. “I think the girls have talked among them-

selves and tried to recruit among themselves. I have been trying to get as many as I could to come out. The results have been good.” But results are good both on and off the course as the coach has been very pleased with what she has seen so far. “The girls are running hard,” she said. “They are sticking with it.” One of the keys to any successful endeavor is good leadership. This year’s team has that in three seniors, Megan Bender, Jessica Smith, and Jillian Koester. But with seniors providing the team spirit and mature work ethic, it is a sophomore who is leading the team on the course right now. “I expect good things from Olivia Goebel,”Kuhn said. “And there is a good core group that is going to be showing good things,

too.” Goebel has been pacing herself while running with the boys and has been pushing herself to run ever further and faster. “I think her goal is to catch up with and maybe even surpass some of the boys,” Kuhn said of Goebel. “We are encouraging her to keep that up.” “We are working very hard and we are going to be ready for Central come August 23,” Kuhn said. “I expect us to do well although I do not know what the other schools have. However, if they continue to put forth the effort they have been, they will be fine.” Jalyn Thornburg is back as a junior this year while Countney Newman and Ashley Whitfield are back to make up a good junior class contingent. “Ashley has been learning and I think she is seeing that maybe she can do more than even she expected,” Kuhn said. “We do not have

any freshmen out right now so that is something we are going to have to work on.” The coach is also hoping that Megan Bender can build on her success in track and transform it into a successful year in cross country. Altogether, there are eight runners out with the possibility of picking up a few more comrades as the

early part of the year kicks in. The girls are scheduled to play host to Central today (August 23). After that, the coach might be willing to go out on a limb. But for now, just hard work and a good attitude is all she expects from her team. The teams will open today (Aug. 23) at home against Central.

Wildcat numbers up and down By Steve Joos Both Mount Vernon cross country teams have their positives for the 2011 season. The boys team has talent and experience coming back, but their numbers are low. The girls also have some experience, but they also have a large untested group of sophomores—a lot of them. There will be 14 girls out for cross country this fall as Jackie Maier returns to the sidelines after a seven-year hiatus from the cross country program. The boys have a veteran team back this season and they’re looking good in practice, according to coach Tim Searcy. There just aren’t enough of them. “Everybody who’s come back is looking good,” Searcy said. “Everybody that we have on the team has come back, so we don’t have any new faces this year. We

have kind of a small group, but we’re looking forward to it.” The drawback is depth— the lack of some. There are only seven runners on the boys’ squad this season and while Searcy is hoping to add some runners before the year gets underway, his biggest concern for now is avoiding injuries and keeping the team intact. It’s a team which has been around a cross country course before. “We are experienced,” Searcy said. “We have a couple of guys who are looking pretty good. I’m looking forward to it, the returning guys are looking good in practice, but practices don’t always mean we’re going to look good in meets.” Jasper will again be a force to be reckoned with, while Mount Carmel and Princeton will have a number of good runners back. Searcy also expects his team to be in there as well, with five of seven runners back,

along with a pair of promising runners off last year’s reserve team, including last year’s reserve runnerup, Adam Hoehn, who has looked good in practice. Hoehn and the rest of the team will have to step up in order for the boys to achieve the success they have enjoyed over the past few seasons. There are two Please see Cats, Page 12

Mount Vernon volleyball looks to continue to build

By Steve Joos There were some things that didn’t look all that promising in the team’s scrimmage, but Mount Vernon volleyball coach Andi Alford likes a lot of what she sees for this year’s team. “We’ve had a pretty strong start,” Alford said. “We did a scrimmage (Tuesday night at Tecumseh) and that showed out weaknesses. We were a little weak on defense and our serve receive was a little off, but we had a strong start.” The areas where the Lady Wildcats struggled at Lynnville were places that Alford thought would be strengths for the team. They didn’t connect well on their swings and the energy level could have been higher, the coach added, with the lack of energy adversely affecting their performance. “I thought one of our strengths would be our defense,” she said. “But the fact that it broke down (at Tecumseh) was an eye-opener for me. We need to work on coverage and servereceive and remember that a big part of defense is just being consistent on our connections.” The Lady Cats have a strong junior class. The returning seniors provide the leadership, but it’s the juniors who make up the bulk of the varsity and are a strong group when they play together. “Meagan Martin is our quarterback,” Alford said. “She’s our setter and having that many touches on a ball, she does her job and she does it well. Liv Hopper and Jacey Ritzert are our two returning hitters and they’re strong hitters for us. Lauren Stemple is our libero and a strong passer. When they’re on, I think we can be a threat.” Mount Vernon Varsity Volleyball Team--Front: Assistant Coach Michelle Buchanan, Lauren Stemple, Bailee ShelOnce again, Memorial will be stiff competition, as well horn, Brittany Wallis, Sarah Duckworth, and Assistant Coach Michelle Northrup.

Cross Country, from Page 11 positions to fill, in particular that of Ken Renshaw, the Wildcats’ leading runner from last season. Searcy has high expectations for the team. “My expectations are always to win,” he said. “We should be going into it, to win conference. We should also go into it thinking we should be one of the top teams in the Sectional, then move on into the Regional, the Semistate and the State.” That’s the history of boys’ cross country at Mount Vernon, Searcy said, adding that he wants to team to always be competitive. Until this year, that history has always included teams where the boys were deeper than the girls. That isn’t quite the case this time around. “I’m excited,” coach Maier said. “It’s hard to tell until we actually get a meet under our belt, but I am very positive about the season.” One thing Maier is excited about are the numbers. There will be 14 girls out this season, giving the Lady Cats full varsity and reserve teams. “We have 14 young ladies at this time,” the coach said. “They’re working hard, they’re doing everything I’ve asked.

I would say most of them have put in quite a few summer miles, so we’re pretty excited. We’re on the right track.” Attitude, work ethic and enthusiasm will be the team’s strengths this year, as the team is running in a nice pack right now. As for weaknesses, Maier won’t know for sure until the team has had a few meets under its belt. Seniors Olivia Baldwin, Chelsea Bell, Bree Reis and Ashton Fuelling will provide leadership, along with first-year senior Lauren Grabert and new runners McKenzie McClarney (a first-year sophomore) and freshman Toni Waddell. Rachel Cash is also back, along with Callie Schisler and Kelli Gerst, who getting ready for swimming. As for the opposition, Maier rates Memorial and Central (a state qualifier as a team last year with four runners back) as major threats, but since she’s been away from coaching, it’s hard to say just how the competition stacks up. “This is new to me basically because I am returning from such a long hiatus,” she said. “For my team in general, my goal is to work towards that conference meet and Jasper is always one of the toughest teams we ever compete against. There’s no doubt they’ll be very tough.” Winning conference will be one goal for the Lady Wildcats and they have enough runners to compete this fall, even if the coach has been gone for a while.

Mount Vernon tennis team regaining swagger as experience returns By Steve Joos The Mount Vernnon boys’ tennis team is feeling a little better about themselves heading into the new season. “We still struggle sometimes with getting the fundamentals down and with getting some consistency,” coach Vicki Oelmer said. “But we’re more confident this year. I see that in the juniors. They really have an air of confidence We’ve got everybody back who played singles last year and that’s always a big plus if you can have all singles back and so I’ve noticed a big difference in the juniors that were sophomores in that they have an air of confidence which I’m hoping will really step it up and help the two seniors this year.” That confidence enables the Cats to hang in and get the job done, unlike other years, where they might relax and not follow through, Oelmer said. That confidence starts with singles players Jevin Redman, Ross Canada and Todd Sheffer, each one of whom is back in his respective spot this season after having successful seasons in 2010. Having a year’s experience will be a big plus with the singles players, who Oelmer hopes will be up against players with less experience. “They’re not going to give up matches that are close,” the coach said of the singles’ players. “I’m not saying they’ll always win, but that they aren’t going to give up and I like that.” Oelmer wants the singles players to work on being more aggressive (which comes with a more confident attitude), adding that Sheffer is playing a more offensive-oriented game, hitting the ball harder and shortening the game. “We’ll continue to work on approach shots and net play,” she said. “We’re hoping to mix it up more and take charge of the point earlier.” Seniors Layton Hopper and Kurt Crabtree will be split for the two doubles teams, but who their respective partners will be is open to question. “Chemistry at doubles is something that we’re going to

Photo by Dave Koch have to work on,” Oelmer said. “We’re playing with combinations and now we’re trying to find the chemistry that will keep those two teams even and competitive with most of the teams we play.” Both played a lot of doubles with mixed success, but they have also shown leadership in organizing the team, Oelmer added. As for their partners, Seth Reeves is an aggressive, hard-hitting player who does well with both seniors and it’s uncertain where he’ll end up. That may hinge on who the team’s seventh player is. “We’re looking at several possibilities there,” Oelmer said. “We have three freshmen that are possibilities.” Hunter Wilson is one of those freshmen, who showed some promise in the team’s season opener. Logan Brown and Aus-

tin Krizan are the other promising freshmen, along junior Jake Rynkiewich, who has the strokes and consistency, but has issues with quickness and reaction time. Castle and Jasper will be among the team’s tougher prospective foes, as well as Memorial and several other Evansville schools. “None of it’s going to be easy for us,” Oelmer said. “We’re not invincible, but we’re feeling confident about our chances.” The coach is hoping that the Cats will repeat last year’s winning season and then getting that Sectional title back. “We work all season to get better,” she said. “So I guess that’s our goal for this season. To get better every time out.” The Wildcats are confident that they can accomplish that.

Lady Wildcats outscore Lady Vikings 9-5 in soccer scoringfest By Steve Joos The visiting North Posey girls’ soccer team was able to contain the Mount Vernon Lady Wildcats for most of Tuesday’s season opener, with one exception. Number 25 on the Lady Cats. Of course, not many teams will be able to contain Kate Cox. The junior Lady Wildcat scored four goals and added an assist as Mount Vernon jumped out to a 6-1 lead and then held off a Lady Viking charge late in the second half for a 9-5 victory. “Defensively, we’re struggling at the moment,” North Posey coach Scott Butrum said. “However, we are working on it in practice. We plan to get better throughout the season.” But like a lot of other soccer teams in Southern Indiana, the Lady Vikings just couldn’t contain Cox. “She’s extremely fast,” Butrum said of the dominative ju-

Posey Athletics &

nior. “If you let her turn with the ball, she’s going to score.” Cox registered a hat trick to open the game and then let the supporting cast take over, as Megan Randall and Jenna Redford each booted in two goals, with Randall adding a pair of assists en route to the win. “I have to admit, we were a little nervous at first,” Lady Wildcats coach Liz Castle said. “We were hoping for a goal in the first five minutes, that’s something that we work on in practice, the first five and the last five, and those first three came pretty easily. Kate had four and had an assist. I hear that a lot from other teams, how to shut her down.” After Cox’s attack in the first 40 minutes, the supporting cast took over in the second half, but not before the first of two Kendra Brandenstein goals made the score 2-1 Mount Vernon at the intermission. Kinsey Johnson’ shot from 15 feet out made it 4-1 Lady Cats with just over three minutes gone in the second half. A minute later, Reidford put in her first goal and then Randall connected with33:17 to go, putting Mount Vernon up 6-1. That’s when North Posey started putting things together on the offensive end. Josie Woolems knocked in a pass from Lauren Meredith

with 27:23 left in the game for the Lady Vikings’ first goal of the half, Brandenstein struck again about 20 seconds later and Savannah King connected less than a minute later, trimming that 6-1 deficit to 6-4 with 26:14 to go. Goals by Reidford and Randall stretched the lead back to 8-4 with 7:15 to go. King’s second goal of the night made it 8-5 with 1:36 left before Cox put an exclamation point on the win with 37.5 seconds left on the clock. “We have some experienced players up on top,” Castle said. “We have some seniors and juniors up on top, who work hard, who really come in together. We were concerned about that spot after Jenny (Koch) left, because Jenny and Katie worked really well together, both Megan and Jenna have stepped up into that role really well and they’ve worked together well.” The second-half run was just slightly at the expense of freshman goalkeeper Erin Wolfe, according to Butrum, while Castle attributed that spurt more to some defensive moves she was working on for the team. “She (Wolfe) is progressing very well for a freshman,” the Lady Viking coach said. “We made some very nice shots and she made some very good saves.”
