By Pam Robinson Three informational items were highlighted during the over threehour meeting of the Mount Vernon School Board on Monday, August 1: 1) initial, tentative enrollment figures for kindergarten; 2) the use of the Hedges Central building; 3) the budgets for general fund, capital projects fund and bus replacement fund. Superintendent Tom Kopatich noted that a “hot spot” had been identified in the Farmersville kindergarten enrollment. As of Friday, July 29, 29 students were enrolled in one class. Kopatich said he would be looking at enrollment

patich stated, while the fee will be substantially higher for a nonprofit. Finally, Director of Business and Technology Loren Evans provided an overview of the budget for the general fund, capital projects fund and bus replacement fund. Based on declining income as a result of declining student enrollment, the general fund budget is down by around 6 percent. Thanks to teachers taking a cut in salary and responding to the early retirement incentive, however, Evans said the district would end with an almost balanced budget in 2012, as it did in 2011, in the general fund. The capital projects fund and bus re-

By Dave Pearce The Posey County Commissioners approved a resolution on Tuesday morning that will establish an Emergency Medical Services Committee “to provide for a diverse representative group of county residents to advise the County Commissioner and the County Council concerning emergency medical services for the county.” With Commissioner John Sherretz absent from the meeting, commissioners Scott Moye and Jim Alsop reviewed a small portion of the resolution but provided additional specific information following the meeting. According to the resolution, another purpose of the committee is to review and make recommendations to county officials concerning programs, personnel, projects, capital equipment, budget, operations, grant opportunities and any other aspects of emergency medical services in the county. Specifically, the committee is to be made of nine members with the commissioners appointing five members with the following qualifications. 1. A physician or nurse practitioner licensed to practice in the State of Indiana. 2. A licensed or registered nurse licensed to practice in the State of Indiana. 3. A Certified Public Accountant. 4. An attorney. 5. A representative of a business or industry which pays property taxes in the county. All five appointees must be residents of Posey County. Additionally, the Posey County Council will appoint four members to the board. The Council will appoint an individual who is a resident and property taxpayer in each of the four County Council districts. The director any physician serving as medical director of the Emergency Medical Service in the county will be a part of the committee will not be entitled to vote on matters be-

Gerton’s opponent in the fall election will be Becky Higgins. In the Mount Vernon mayoral race, incumbent John Tucker will face political newcomer Paul Watzlavik. Another newcomer to politics, Ed Adams, will face Andy Hoehn, who was selected to finish the term of his wife, Nancy, when she was elected to her county position.

For unobvious reasons, please don’t hire the intern If you have been entertaining the idea of hiring an intern to work for your company, I have just three words of advice. DON’T DO IT! Especially if she is anything like the person we have had intern in our office this summer. Along about March of 2011, I received an email from North Posey High School graduate and current Indiana University student Holly TRUTH... Heerdink. Holly was asking STRANGER if we had any positions open THAN for an intern for the summer. FICTION And although we have not BY DAVE used a college intern before, PEARCE there was one particular sentence in her inquiry that particularly caught my interest. She indicated she would do it for “free.” And despite disappointment from past but younger interns, I reluctantly agreed to allow Holly to begin coming into the office once she got back to Posey County for the summer. And, since I too was once an intern, I couldn’t allow her to spend her time and gasoline and get nothing but experience out of it. So we talked via email and decided to come to an agreement on the amount she would be paid and a schedule that we agreed would be fair for her. We have a large office (which was origi-

nally set up for me) in the back of our main office in New Harmony. Since I rarely use the space, I decided to let Holly set up shop there for the summer. She brought in just a few personal items and went to work. And here’s where my warning kicked in. From the first day she came into the office, she was pleasant. I don’t think I have ever heard her complain about a single thing and every assignment she was given was completed without complaining and without excuses and was on time or done ahead of time. This was a new and foreign concept to me. She showed up each day with a smile on her face and ready to take on the world and whatever it had to offer that day. Only about four weeks into the job, I decided to give Holly the full intern treatment and allowed her to go to Point Township in my place and meet Senator Dan Coats and spend the day touring the flood-ravaged Point Township area with him and his entourage. And what did I get in return? Very wellconstructed pictures and stories that I had to spend very little time editing and a "Thank You" for the opportunity. As the summer wore on, I found that I

could call on Holly to do just about anything I asked her to do. Still, she never complained and was always open to ideas and constructive criticism. Never once did I feel that she took ideas or suggestions in a negative way. Always with a smile she would go through the things I mentioned to check for the merit my suggestions might hold. Then, come Posey County Fair time, Holly spent the week as part of the Posey County Fair Royalty and represented her county and the Posey County News with an irreproachable attitude and exemplary conduct. Our intern even made a habit of picking up after our full time employees and more than once, I observed her taking out the trash simply “because it needed to be done.” But a couple of weeks ago, she hit me with the real reason why you should never hire an intern like the one we have had this summer. The summer has passed too fast and as I write this, Holly is spending her final day in the office, although she has agreed to cover any stories I might have for her between now and the time to go back to IU. So, now, Holly, what am I supposed to do? How am I supposed to handle this workload that you have left behind? How am I going to replace the positive attitude that you have helped bring and maintain in our workplace?

I have made her an offer that if she would decide not to return to school, I would be happy to keep her on intern pay and she would have a permanent part-time job with the Posey County News. For some silly reason, she has decided to go ahead and return to IU. Obviously, this column was written as a tribute to what Holly has meant to all of us as a summer intern. My heart is a little heavy today as I realize that she will be leaving us after today. She has come so far in such a short time and I honestly believe it has been all about her attitude. She has wanted to learn from day one. She has taken every assignment and has run with it. She has needed minimal guidance. So, again, if you are even thinking about using an intern, especially like the one we have had, don’t do it. Because on the last day of the internship, your heart will be heavy and you will be asking yourself, “How in the world did I make it before she came and what am I going to do when she leaves?” Thank you, Holly, for a wonderful summer. I hope that we have been able to give you half as much as you have given to us. And when you become the Eighth District Congresswoman, remember that the Posey County News gets the press releases first. Good luck in all that you do!

Posey County Facebook page gives locals chance for good fun, memories “You’re probably from Posey County if. . .”—this new closed group on Facebook is all the rage now. Within 48 hours of creating the group, the page owner reported 236 members. As of mid-week last week, the number was at 252—and growing. A native of Kentucky, Mammoth Cave country to be exact, I now answer the FOR THE question, “Where are you RECORD from?” with “Posey County” since I’ve lived here for go- BY PAM ing on 23 years. I was count- ROBINSON ing on honorary membership to the group, “You’re probably from Posey County if. . .,” and I wasn’t disappointed. I’ve learned so much about Posey County from reading the Facebook posts. I share some of the posts here for my readers’ enjoyment as well. The remarks are listed here anonymously in random order to protect the innocent. You’re probably from Posey County if. . . • You remember only having to dial the last 4 digits of a Wadesville phone number if you were calling from another Wadesville number... and Stewartsville had a "party" line system. • You had your best driving practice at 2 a.m. in the school parking lot after it snowed. • You hung out at the park or Krohn's gas station in Cynthiana. • You called going to Evansville, "going to town." • You used to go to the gas station in Wadesviille (where the AT&T store is now) and buy gum and candy for a nickle. • You remember getting out of school early

for heat days. • You celebrate opening day of deer season as a holiday. • You wore John Deere clothes because that’s what was on sale at the farm store, not because it was cool. • You didn't find it weird to party in a barn. • You walked across the street in broad daylight to get corn out of the field for dinner. . .or crossed the county chip n seal road barefoot! • You grow up thinking a beach vacation is a trip to the sandbars. • You tell your date you’re taking her to Griffin to spot light deer...and you are really down there to do just that. • You go morel hunting and are shocked that outsiders don't know what they are. • You hung out at the John Deere parking lot (and didn't think it was weird). • You consider the St.Wendel Beirstube one of your favorite weekends of the year. • You've ever been pulled over by Frank Smith, then had him teach your class the next day. • You remember not School Color Day, but Tractor Day. • You had to shut the windows in your class room because the smell of pigs was so bad. This list certainly isn’t exhaustive. It’s a sampling of the best remarks and reveals the good nature of most Posey people. I add my own observation after 22 years in the county: you’re probably from Posey County if you have a sense of humor about country living. It never hurts to poke a little fun at yourself.

Gavel Gamut’s “War and Peace” One’s view of settlement agreements in court cases is greatly influenced by one’s view of the role of courts. Is a courtroom an arena or council chamber? Are juries and judges empowered to simply turn thumbs up or down after parties, witnesses and attorneys struggle before them? Is a court case decided between losers and winners or is it an GAVEL opportunity to resolve con- GAMUT flicts? While our species has phys- BY JUDGE ical records such as petro- JIM REDWINE glyphs, hieroglyphics and cuneiform from thousands of years ago, we know hominids were forming families and groups millions of years ago. And what was one of the basic needs of our earliest civilizations that continues to be essential to our survival? Dispute resolution. If women and men could not come to accommodations on which cave to live in, no family unit would be formed. If people in neighboring caves could not share the nearby stream, no tribe would be formed. And if there had been no mechanism to resolve disagreements among the tribe, civilization would not have progressed. Dispute resolution has many forms. Some use superior force, others require one party to flee, restitution or retribution might take place or some sort of assuaging of frayed emotions is sometimes possible. Trial by combat, dunking stools, crucifixion, hanging, transfer of assets and incarceration are means of dispute resolution. But civilization progresses faster and better when people who have differences of opinions and competing interests can reason and work together. For thousands of years courts are where societies have turned for help with controversies. Combat is destructive, expensive, often protracted and frequently unsatisfactory even for the ostensible “victor”. Therefore, the further from the clashing of swords and the nearer to the pouring of oil on troubled waters we can get, the better. When parties at odds or with different in-

Big Brothers Big Sisters thanks Posey County students Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) serving Posey County would like to extend a big thank you to some special students in Posey County. The members of the Mount Vernon Junior High School Builders Club donated $250 to BBBS serving Posey County in May 2011. This donation came from a portion of their proceeds generated from a talent show. BBBS greatly appreciates their donation and most importantly their willingness to help children in Posey County. Twenty-nine North Posey High School students are volunteering their time to mentor North Posey Junior High School students in a BBBS school-based mentoring program

that started in April 2011. These high school students are providing a needed support system socially, emotionally, and academically for the junior high students. BBBS appreciates all the students involved and the efforts of Susie Tooley in getting this BBBS school-based mentoring program started in Posey County. I am sure all Posey County residents agree that we have awesome students in our county that are concerned about others and are willing to share their time and talents.

Guest Editorial

terests and views can, with the help of the courts, compromise and fashion a solution to their particular controversy, the parties can move forward and so can society. This is true in court cases of all kinds. In civil matters we call this settlement and in criminal matters we call it plea negotiation. With the proper attitude from the parties and oversight from the court, disputes are resolved, money is saved, justice is served and life can go on. In criminal cases, the state and any victims have their interests protected by the prosecuting attorney while the individual charged is represented by an attorney, often at public expense. Not only is this the law under both state and federal constitutions, but it is right and fair. When society decides to bring its might against an individual, it is only proper that those who are powerless have their rights protected too. When a charge is filed, the defendant and her/his attorney usually receive an offer from the prosecuting attorney based on the facts of the crime, the defendant’s background such as any prior record and a comparison to how similar cases and defendants have been handled in the past. The defendant, if he/she is guilty, can accept the offer or make a counter offer through the defense attorney. In Indiana no one who did not actually commit the crime is allowed to plead guilty even if they want to. The judge must ascertain the facts of what a defendant did before ruling on a plea bargain. Also, in Indiana, any victims must be informed of all potential plea bargains so they may voice their disagreement or acceptance. With the state representing the public and any victims and the defendant having his/ her own advocate and the entire matter being reviewed by a judge, there is an excellent chance the outcome will be fair and in the public’s interest. Is this always the result? No. Does this system enhance our lives better than trial by ordeal? Yes.

Letter to the Editor


By Bryan Golden

Bouncing Back From Adversity There may be a time in your life, perhaps more than one, when you hit bottom. It may feel as if your situation can’t get any worse. There may be one event that stresses you out or a cumulative series of circumstances. Regardless of the cause, if you hit bottom you can bounce back. But you have to believe you can and you have to want to. Although this appears to be obvious, there are people who don’t think it’s possible to get back up or do not have the drive to do so. Hitting bottom is emotionally and physically draining. You may find yourself devoid of ambition or lacking enthusiasm. Staying at the bottom, wallowing in self-pity, is not an option. Regardless of why you hit bottom, or how long you have been there, you need to immediately begin the process of bouncing back. Bouncing back involves several components: desire, determination, action, perseverance, and an open mind. The process starts with desire. You have to want to improve your situation. If you don’t, you won’t. Saying something to yourself similar to, “I guess it would be nice if things were better but I don’t know if it’s possible,” will not work. You mindset must be, “I’m going to do whatever it takes to improve where I am and how I feel.” Next you need a plan. A clearly defined and understood set of steps is essential. You don’t have to formulate a plan on your own. Being at the bottom can impact your perspective along with the ability to think clearly. Look to people who have gotten themselves out of the same predicament you are facing. You can learn a lot from them as to what strategies are most effective. Devise as many steps as necessary. Each one needs to be small enough to avoid being overwhelming. There is a natural tendency to avoid tasks that are too large. A plan with steps you won’t take is of no value. Now you are ready for action. Begin with the first step in your plan. No step is too small. Getting started is the key. The slightASSISTANT EDITOR, MV OFFICE PAM ROBINSON

est bit of forward progress is significant. Give yourself credit for each accomplishment. Without action, nothing happens. If you stop, all progress ceases. Bouncing back takes effort but suffering is no picnic either. Since whatever path you take requires energy, it makes sense to choose a course which will lead you to a desirable destination. The more effort you put into implementing your plan, the more effective you will be. You are not going to bounce back in one step. The journey is a progression that takes place one step at a time. Patience is required. Frustration is a common component of the process. Giving up is not an option. Persistence is the key to getting to where you want to be. You may experience setbacks. It doesn’t matter. Pick yourself up and get back on track. Concentrate on your destination rather than your current situation. Forward is the only direction that’s important. You can bounce back from hitting bottom. People do it all the time. You need desire, a plan, and then action. There is no magic involved. When you find yourself at a low point, it’s only a detour, not a final destination. It is never too late to change direction. Bryan is the author of "Dare to Live Without Limits."

of their friends and neighbors and they all came, too,” Oeth said. “But we were able to do exactly what we wanted to do. That was the point of the whole night.” Oeth indicated that the nature of the jobs of the county officials who were there can sometimes conjure negative images. Events such as this one help people put faces with the names and their positions and therefore will be more comfortable when the need

arises. On a national scale, the event is designed to Heighten crime and drug prevention awareness; Generate support for, and participation in, local anticrime programs; Strengthen neighborhood spirit and policecommunity partnerships; and, Send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.

Countrymark donates, St. Philips churches to host Habitat fundraiser When Shawnte Bates applied for a home built in partnership with Habitat for Humanity of Evansville, she and her young son had been living with her grandmother in Evansville. The 30-year-old knew, however, that she needed to find a more stable living situation for her family’s future. She was accepted into the program, and now after months of working on the homes of others in order to fulfill her sweat equity requirement, Bates will soon begin working on her own in Mount Vernon. “I know I’m really blessed,” she said. “And I’m really glad that I will be able to raise my son in the small town that I was raised in, where family is still at the core of the community.” Seven churches in the St. Philips area are joining together to support Bates’ house and a second house, thanks to a matching contribution by Countrymark. Earlier this year, Indiana-based Countrymark announced plans to contribute up to $55,000 in matching funds to Habitat for Humanity of Evansville to provide the resources necessary to build two homes in Posey County. The St. Philips Area churches are sponsoring a Dinner, Ice Cream Social & Variety Show at 5 p.m. on Aug. 21 at St. Peters United Methodist Church, 2800 St. Phillip Road South. The dinner of pork-chops, potato salad and baked beans begins at 5 p.m., and the variety show begins at 6 p.m. The Dairymen’s Association is donating 20 gallons of ice cream. And local talent from the seven churches will provide entertainment beginning at 6 p.m. A free-will offering will be collected, with every

dollar raised going to support the Mount Vernon Habitat builds. For more information, call St. Peters United Church of Christ at (812) 985-3416. Donations may also be sent to any of the participating churches, or to Habitat for Humanity of Evansville, 1401 N. Fares Ave., Evansville, Ind. 47711, with “Mount Vernon” clearly marked on the donation. Bates has been diligently putting in the 300 “sweat equity” hours she must contribute as part of the Habitat homeownership program. So far, she has been helping other partner families build their own homes. In September, she begins construction on her own home. In addition, she has completed all of the required homeownership classes, where she has learned about home maintenance, budgeting and many other topics to prepare her for homeownership. She’s done all this while still working full time at Deaconess Hospital. Since 1984, Habitat for Humanity of Evansville has been building homes with families in need in Vanderburgh and Posey counties. More than 350 homes in these counties have been built to date, including six in Posey County. To be eligible, families must have incomes at or below 60 percent of the area median income, or $18,870 to $37,740 for a family of four. They must also have a need for housing, be willing to contribute 300 hours in sweat equity and have the ability to pay their mortgage based on a 25-year, no-interest loan. To learn more about becoming a Habitat homeowner, call the Habitat office at (812) 423-5623.

A part of the reason for Mount Vernon’s River Days Festival is to remember the rich historic heritage enjoyed by the Ohio River town, which will celebrate its 200th birthday in 2016. Again this year at Sherburne Park on the Riverfront will be a wide variety of Historical Demonstrations that will interest young and old, alike. Visitors will have the opportunity to see a basket weaver, a broom maker, a rope maker, someone making old-fashioned soap, candles and butter. There will be quilters, knitters, and corn stalk dolls being made on site. There will be displays and demonstrations of frontier knife-making, along with powder horns. A display of

gourds will be of interest as the history and uses of these utilitarian garden items are explained. Long-riflemen and at least two Civil War demonstrators will be on hand for the three-day festival. Next to General Hovey’s Field Headquarters, a field hospital tent, the kind used for wounded Civil War soldiers, will be set up.

Marsha King is chairman of the Historical Demonstrations event. Further information is available from Mrs. King at 589-5651.

Smoke on the Ohio cooking at River Days "Smoke on the Ohio," in its third year, has become a crowd favorite with visitors to Mt. Vernon River Days. This barbecue cookoff is back again in 2011 with as many as 15 teams "Smokin’ & Serving." Darrin Seitz, well known to the barbecue competition community, is the coordinator for this festival event which will be located on Water Street just a few hundred yards from the "Beautiful Ohio." "The whole downtown area will be overcome by the sweet smoky aroma of slow cooked BBQ as these teams are competing for both cash and unique trophies; but, most of all, some will walk away knowing that they beat those that were up for the challenge," Seitz remarked. Judging will be in three categories: ribs, chicken and pork butts. Judging results will be announced on the main stage at 3:30 p.m. on Saturday.

The teams are allowed to sell any type of BBQ to the public and are not limited to the three competition categories; teams in the past have sold slabs of ribs, half chickens, BBQ sandwiches, smoked pork chops...all of competition quality. Selling will take place on both Friday and Saturday. Seitz says that 11 teams have already signed up, with room for just four more teams between now and the August 20 cutoff date. Seitz may be reached at 459-1741 or by email: Darrin.Seitz@ Teams will move in on Thursday night, September 8 and be ready for competition and selling to the public by the time the River Days Festival opens at 11 a.m. on Friday, September 9. "Smoke on the Ohio" is just one of the many events that will be taking place on Mount Vernon’s Riverfront on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, September 9, 10, and 11.

Knowledge, hard work, provide year-round color in Parsonage garden

Parsonage Pleasure...

Above, The Parsonage front yard taken in the evening time from the west. At left, Mary Parsonage stands in the middle of her colorful yard. Parsonage has spent many years (about 40) and many hours reading and learning about the plants that adorn her Blackford Road home. The garden serves as a sanctuary for Parsonage and she spends endless hours keeping unwanted weeds from the showpiece with little assistance from pesticides. The Parsonage yard has become an annual showplace and an example of what can be achieved when you put your heart and soul (and a lot of time) into the garden in your yard. Story and photos by Pam Robinson

By Pam Robinson Bountiful blossoms burst with color to create an endless rainbow in both the front and back yards at the Blackford Road home of Mary Parsonage. Gold strikes the eye of visitors in the form of lemon-colored roses and delicate yellow daisies. The enchanting scene rivals any formal, public garden and stretches far beyond the narrow lens of any camera. Southern Indiana natives, Parsonage and her husband of 52 years, Edward, moved into their home 43 years ago when she worked for General Electric. She has spent 40 of those 43 years cultivating this one-half acre patch of ground until it has yielded an inexpressibly rich treasure. She says she started with one plant of each of the hundreds of varieties of trees, shrubs and flowers—a start of this, a sprig of that—and divided prolific shoots and tended seed pods each year. The result is a carefully designed plot featuring successive blooms from April through October. Even in the dead of winter, bright red winterberries still warm the heart with their glow. In early spring, azaleas and daffodils and tulips start the bright show surrounded by flowering cherry, crabapple, and dogwood trees. From early to mid-summer, in the shade of three magnolia trees, multi-colored roses line the yard fence and multiple pillars inside the yard along with daylilies, daisies, hydrangea and hibiscus. An assortment of annuals, such as petunias and vinca, provide their own splash of color. During the dog days of August, surprise lilies delight with their stalks of pink blooms. In the autumn, mum’s the word—maroon, orange, purple, yellow—for

the display. A self-inspired gardener, Parsonage says she sprouted a green thumb after turning the pages in many books and watching the occasional gardening show on television. She weeds and tends all her flowers, including seeding her own annuals. A member of the Arbor Day Foundation, she even grows her own trees from the small, typically six-inch shoots sent her. She transplants the trees when they are a few feet tall. Pesticides are only sparingly used in Parsonage’s garden. In fact, she lets some weeds thrive since they sustain her beloved butterflies. “I grow a lot of things just for the butterflies. Each butterfly has a host plant where they lay their eggs, so I keep a long list of host plants for different butterflies,” she says. “I grow milkweed for the monarchs. It’s not too pretty, but I love the butterflies.” Nearby, we watched the buckeye caterpillars suck the life out of yellow snapdragons, their host plant. “The snapdragons will straighten back up once the butterflies hatch,” Parsonage reassures. Butterfly bushes abound in her garden. “They love to feed on the butterfly bushes more than anything, I think,” she observes. Her two children and four grandchildren are too busy with managing careers and preparing for careers to share the Parsonage plant passion. So what provides Mary Parsonage with her flower power? “The beauty of it all keeps me going. I just love looking out the windows and seeing the beauty of the scenery,” she says. “It’s certainly not because it’s easy.”

I love you with all my heart and I need you back.” — Charlene Spierer, mother of missing student

Lauren Spierer and have 10 people of interest. They emphasized that those individuals are not suspects. Investigators, who have obtained security video from the area where Lauren Spierer was last seen, are not planning to release the footage, Qualters said. Video evidence last shows Spierer between 3:15 and 3:30 a.m. on June 3 walking, he said. Qualters wouldn’t say whether she was alone or what else the video shows. Police have that the last time anyone saw Spierer, she was leaving a friend’s apartment to walk home alone around 4:30 a.m. Qualters said a representative of Texas Equusearch, a national search group, was in Bloomington on Saturday. Police plan to meet with the group, which provides horse-mounted search and recovery volunteers, to determine if it can provide any services in this case.

Woman is burned, tried to put out fire

A kitchen fire in a home on East Columbia Street in Evansville sent a woman to the hospital Sunday afternoon. The woman, who was not identified, was hospitalized with burns to her leg and hand that she received while trying to put out the blaze, Evansville Fire Department investigator Richard Howard said. According to Howard, fire crews were dispatched

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. — Police said Sunday that an “America’s Most Wanted” television show segment about a missing Indiana University student generated at least 30 to 40 tips, but so far none of them have led to major breakthroughs in the case. Lauren Spierer was last seen walking home alone from a friend’s apartment early June 3, a few hours after she left a popular Bloomington bar. The case of the missing 20-year-old student from Greenburgh, N.Y., was featured on “America’s Most Wanted” on Saturday. Bloomington police say the show generated 30 to 40 tips between the show’s 9 p.m. airing and 3 a.m., but none have led to any breaks in the investigation. Police Capt. Joe Qualters hoped for more tips Sunday. Robert Spierer told reporters at a news conference Sunday in Bloomington that twice-a-day searches for his daughter will continue all week. His wife, Charlene Spierer, said she had a message for whoever has Lauren or has harmed her. “Shame on you,” she said. “Shame on you.” She begged anyone with knowledge of what happened to her daughter to come forward and said the family is just looking for answers. The mother also had a message for her child. She said she wants Lauren to know her mother remains strong and as determined as ever to find her. “I am here for you 100 percent. I will never leave you,” Charlene Spierer said. “I love you with all my heart, and I need you back.” Police have been interviewing people who know

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.

‘Bucket’ List’ serves as impetus for Big Papa’s Pizza in Poseyville By Dave Pearce Thanks to a “Bucket List,” Poseyville-area residents will soon be able to enjoy a new style of Italian carry-out. Big Papas opened Monday in the former location of Viking Pizza at 11 S. Locust in Poseyville. While both served pizza, Big Papas owner Carol Brooks urges Posey County residents to be prepared for something new like they have never tasted before. She is hoping that the secret handmade-from-scratch dough will help turn some “dough” of another variety. After all, it has been handed down, originally from Italy and will be made on site. “My grandfather…everyone called him papa,” Brooks said with a smile. “It has just been a thing in our family that we call the grandfathers ‘Papa.’ This is a little salute to them.” The daughter of Poseyville resident Bill Norris, Carol and her husband, Charles, are originally from Wadesville and are long-time residents of the town now. But that went by virtue of a 10-year hiatus in California three years after they were married. “We’ve redone the inside and my sister did the freehand painting to give it a little Italian flare,” Brooks said. The “bucket list” reference is from the 2007 film where blue-collar mechanic Carter Chambers and billionaire hospital magnate Edward Cole meet for the first time in the hospital after both have been diagnosed with terminal lung cancer. Carter begins writing a “bucket list,” or things to do before he “kicks the bucket” (i.e. “dies”). After hearing he has less than a year, Carter discards the list. Edward finds it the next morning and urges Carter to do everything on the list (and adds more things to do), and offers to finance the trip for the both of them. The restaurant has been sending out samples for the past few days and Brooks said the response has been overwhelmingly positive, especially on the calzones and the ‘papa knots,’ a garlic roll that is tied in a knot. Her husband operates a high-rise window cleaning business. With Carol “semi-retired,” and the idea of owning a restaurant on her “bucket list,” she grew tired of staying at home and decided to take the opportunity when it presented itself. Brooks, who only a month ago was advised by her physician that she needed a titanium rod surgically placed in her

She said that becoming active again has already improved both her mental and physical health. While her experience in the kind of cooking she will be doing in the carry-out pizza business is limited, she is certainly no stranger to cooking. She has cooked for her husband and family (five children) and her favorite television time is spent watching The Food Network. “I love to cook,” she said adamantly. “Even my mother did that. My mother would always tell me about The Food Channel. Cooking is just something that has been in our family forever. We like to grill and cook. It might take me awhile to get the hang of it, but I know we can do it.”

Already, Brooks has experienced some of the joys of owning your own small business. The signage, which was supposed to have been in place two weeks ago, is still not on the building. And the soft drink companies, when she was deciding on an opening day, were all busy supplying the Vanderburgh County Fair with what it needed so the importance of the small, family-owned business seems to have been “placed on the back burner,” until now. “We have had a lot of calls with people thinking we were already open and each time we have had to tell them that some of our suppliers have not yet come through,” she explained. “I am tired of telling people “no” so we are just going to go ahead and jump into it this week.” The owner of the building is a member of the family and when it came available, it seemed the perfect opportunity for the Brooks family. She is counting on sisters Melody Patton and Diana Barker for helpers until things settle down. “The food will be good and I am a clean freak so everything will be clean,” Brooks promises. “This is a new experience and I am 67 years old but I know we can do this.” Brooks is the mother of Kim Martin, now in Canada; a son, Charles, Jr., of Henderson, Ky., a son, Jeffrey Brooks of New Harmony, Danielle Germano of Wadesville, and her youngest, 19-year-old Taylor. For the present time, the store is scheduled to be open over the lunch hour from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m., Monday through Thursday. The restaurant will reopen at 4 p.m. and be open until 9 p.m. On Friday and Saturday, the store will keep later hours, remaining open until 11 p.m.. On Sundays, at least for now, the store will be open from 4 until 8 p.m. To order food from Big Papas, residents may call 874-2800. Big Papas also has a Facebook Page established with a link on the Posey County News Facebook page.

Any defense to the application for judgment must be filed with the Posey County Circuit Court and served on the county auditor and treasurer before 8/26/2011. The court will set a date for a hearing at least seven (7) days before the advertised date of sale and the court will determine any defenses to the application for judgment at the hearing. The county auditor and the county treasurer are entitled to receive all pleadings, motions, petitions, and other filings related to the defense to the application for judgment. Such sale will be held on 9/12/2011 at the Hovey House, Commissioners’ Room and that sale will continue until all tracts and real property have been offered for sale. Property will not be sold for an amount which is less than the sum of: (A) the delinquent taxes and special assessments on each tract or item of real property; and (B) the taxes and special assessments on the real property that are due and payable in the year of the sale, whether or not they are delinquent; and (C) all penalties due on the delinquencies, and (D) an amount prescribed by the county auditor that equals the sum of: (1) twenty-five($25) for postage and publication costs; and (2) any other costs incurred by the county that are directly attributable to the tax sale; and (E) any unpaid costs due under IC 6-1.1-24-2(b) from a prior tax sale; and No property listed below shall be sold if, at any time before the sale, the Total Amount for Judgment is paid in full. If the real property is sold in the tax sale, the amount required to redeem such property will be 110% of the minimum bid for which the tract or real property was offered at the time of sale, as required by IC 6-1.1-24-5 if redeemed not more than six (6) months after the date of sale, or 115% of the minimum bid for which the tract or real property was offered at the time of sale, as required by IC 6-1.1-24-5 if redeemed more than six (6) months after the date of sale, plus the amount by which the purchase price exceeds the minimum bid on the real property plus ten percent (10%) per annum on the amount by which the purchase price exceeds the minimum bid on the property. All taxes and special assessments upon the property paid by the purchaser subsequent to the sale, plus 10% per annum interest on those taxes and special assessments, will also be required to be paid to redeem such property. In addition, IC 6-1.1-25-2 (e) states the total amount required for redemption may include the following costs incurred and paid by the purchaser or the purchaser’s assignee or the county before redemption: (1) The attorney’s fees and cost of giving notice under IC 6-1.1-25-4.5.

If the tract or item of real property is sold for an amount more than the minimum bid and the property is not redeemed, the owner of record of the property who is divested of ownership at the time the tax deed is issued may have a right to the tax sale surplus. The Auditor and Treasurer specifically reserve the right to withhold from the sale any parcel which has been listed in error, or which otherwise becomes ineligible for sale either prior to 9/12/2011 or during the duration of the sale.

Helping friends, family bring joy to Michele Tepool Michele Tepool wears a couple of different hats as the customer service representative for Expressway Autoworld in Mount Vernon. Needless to say, she handles complaints, striving to earn customers’ complete satisfaction and continued business. Best of all, though, she organizes the company’s fundraisers. She provides the special touch whenever Expressway lends a hand in the community. “I like to do anything that helps people and the community,” Tepool says. In addition to spearheading annual fundraising efforts for the Shriners’ Hospital

and Riley Children’s Hospital, Tepool is the Expressway team captain for the annual Susan B. Komen Race for the Cure to fund cancer programs and research. Tepool says she loves to help Susan B. Komen since a large portion of the donated funds go back into the local community. This year, she is excited to have been included on the three-member committee to organize the Expressway Golf Scramble on Sunday, August 14, which will also benefit Susan B. Komen. She is proud of the 80 hole sponsors and 28 teams involved. Two additional local fundraisers support children in Posey County: the Clothe-AKid Christmas Raffle and the


North Posey Raffle. ClotheA-Kid does just what its name says, making sure kids have a Christmas to remember with clothes they need. The North Posey Raffle provides the winning ticket holder with the choice of a new vehicle from an Expressway lineup or a large cash prize. Proceeds in the neighborhood of $30,000 benefit North Posey academics and athletics. Originally from Poseyville, Tepool lives in her husband Tony’s hometown of Wadesville now. She stays busy with her two children: a 21-yearold daughter, Britini, attending the University of Southern Indiana and a 9-year-old son, Cameron, starting fourth grade at North Elementary

this fall. She enjoys her extended family also and spending time with her younger brother Danny of Wadesville and older sister Tammy of Evansville. “One of my biggest joys in life is being an aunt,” Tepool adds. She has been graced with eight nieces and nephews. In turn, those nieces and nephews have blessed her with five great nieces and nephews. When Tepool isn’t involved with her own family, she’s helping her church family. She just finished working with the children during five nights of Vacation Bible School at Poseyville Christian Church.
