Special to the News At a Statehouse ceremony this week, Lt. Governor Becky Skillman awarded a $500,000 Community Focus Fund grant to the Town of New Harmony to fund a Fire/EMS station construction project. The Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs (OCRA) administers the grants, which are funded through the federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program. Twenty-six communities and counties were recognized at the ceremony, with grant awards totaling more than $13 million. The Community Focus Fund grants are awarded twice annually through a competitive application process. Eligible projects include, but are not limited to: community and senior centers, special needs facilities, libraries, water system improvements, storm drainage projects, and sewer system improvements. “Grant opportunities, like this one, allow rural communities to undertake projects they might not otherwise be able to fund,” said Lt. Governor Skillman. “Updat-

Children’s Learning Center Director Mark McDonald stands with the two staff members (L to R), Allison Thomas and Yvonne Lawrence, who have worked at the facility since its doors opened 15 years ago. Children’s Learning Center will host a community celebration of its 15th anniversary Tuesday, Feb. 15, from 5:30 to 7 p.m. The public is invited to attend.

By Pam Robinson The Children’s Learning Center of Mount Vernon is inviting all families of the children it serves as well as all townspeople to come celebrate its 15th anniversary in the community. The celebration will take place Tuesday, Feb. 15, from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at the Children’s Learning Center, located at 2100 W. Fourth Street, across the way from Mount Vernon Medical Center. Children’s Learning Center Director Mark McDonald promises food and cake, door prizes and games and time to visit with neighbors and friends.

The two women have worked there since the day the doors opened and provided them with a workplace right in their backyard. “I wanted a full-time job, and I liked children.

Fine Arts Academy to open in Mount Vernon By Pam Robinson Anyone with doubts about the future of the Metropolitan School District, or MSD, of Mount Vernon can put them to rest. The district has announced two new educational initiatives to prepare students for the 21st century. This fall, Mount Vernon Senior High School will open the doors to its Fine Arts Academy. The doors will open to students all over the TriState, not just those in the Mount Vernon area. Students may enroll part-time and remain in a school outside the MSD of Mount Vernon, or they may enroll full-time and enjoy their full curricular focus at Mount Vernon Senior High School. The Fine Arts Academy will capitalize on its award-winning students, teachers already on staff and programs, operating at no additional

cost to the school district. Areas of emphasis will include instrumental music, technical theatre, vocal music, theatre arts and visual arts, both traditional and digital. MSD of Mount Vernon Director of Curriculum, Grants and Testing Jody Pfister emphasizes, “We have a lot of courses that were already in place way and above many of the other districts around us or any other school corporations close to us. We decided to put all that together and offer it and market and advertise it to students all over the Tri-State so they could further their career, or begin a career, in, for example, TV production and music and theatre. Students would be able to be prepared for post-secondary endeavors in an arts-related career.” Pfister notes the MSD of Mount Vernon offers over 40 events in the arts each year. Its award-

winning students are hired regularly by several Evansville schools as well as area arts organizations just to design and build their sets for performances. “Technical theatre is something most schools don’t offer,” Pfister says. “We have schools in Evansville actually have our tech theatre students come over and set up the lighting and set design for their plays because they don’t have the expertise. Our tech theatre students also do the Peppermint Pops, the Philharmonic Orchestra, and the “Nutcracker.” Of course, they get paid to do these things because they’ve got the skills to do it.” Those skills are evident in the recognition Mount Vernon Senior High School has received

During that time, he served as a police officer in New Harmony for 16 years and as the town’s zoning administrator for 14 years. He’s returned as the town’s zoning administrator, already having devoted six years to the position. He was appointed to New Harmony Town Council in 2003 and since then has run two successful re-election campaigns for two four-year terms.

Celestin has yet to do so. “We’re focused on helping the Haitian people,” Clinton said ahead of the meetings.

The County Cookbook Selection by Zach Straw

Swedish Meatballs

MEATBALL INGREDIENTS • 1 large yellow or white onion, peeled, grated (through a cheese grater) • 2 Tbsp butter • 2/3 cup milk • 4-5 slices of bread, crusts removed, bread cut into pieces • 2 eggs • 1 pound ground pork • 1 1/2 pounds ground beef • 2 teaspoons salt • 1 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg • 1 teaspoon ground cardamom • 2 teaspoons black pepper SAUCE INGREDIENTS • 6 Tbsp butter • 1/3 cup flour • 1 quart beef stock • 1/2 to 3/4 cup sour cream • Salt • 2 to 4 Tbsp of Lingonberry, cranberry, red currant or raspberry jelly, more or less to taste (optional) DIRECTIONS 1. Sauté the grated onion in the butter over medium-high heat until the onions soften and turn translucent, about 3-4 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool. 2. In a medium bowl, mix the bread pieces with the milk. Set aside for 15-20 minutes, or until the bread soaks up all the milk. When it does, pulverize the bread in a food processor and pour it into a large bowl. 3. Add the cooled onions to the bowl of milk and bread. Add the rest of the meatball ingredients—eggs, ground pork, ground beef, salt, nutmeg, cardamom, pepper. Using your (clean) hands, mix well for about 2 minutes until the ingredients are well combined. 4. Use a tablespoon to measure out the meat for the meatballs. As you form the meatballs, set each one aside on a sheet pan or plate. You should get 40 to 50 meatballs. 5. Heat 6 tablespoons of butter for the sauce in a large sauté pan over medium heat. When the butter has melted, reduce the heat to medium and add some of the meatballs. Do not crowd the pan. Work in batches, browning them slowly on all sides. Be gentle when you turn them so they don’t break apart. Do not cook the meatballs all the way through, only brown them at this stage. Once browned, use a slotted spoon to remove them from the pan, setting them aside so you can make the sauce with the remaining pan butter. 6. Start the sauce. (Check the pan butter to see if it has burned. If the butter tastes burnt, discard the butter and replace with new 6 tablespoons.) Heat the pan butter on medium until hot. Slowly whisk in the flour. Stirring often, let the flour cook until it is the color of coffee-with-cream; this is a classic roux. 7. As the roux is cooking, heat the beef stock in another pot until it simmers. When the roux has cooked until the color of coffee-with-cream, slowly add the hot beef stock a little at a time. Everything will sputter at first, and the sauce will seize up and solidify. Keep stirring and adding stock slowly, and it will loosen up and become silky. 8. Add the meatballs to the sauce and turn the heat down to low. Cover the pot and cook on low heat for 10 minutes. You might need to do this in batches. 9. To finish, move the meatballs to a serving dish. Add the sour cream and mix well. Either add the lingonberry jelly to the sauce or serve it on the side. Serves 6-8.

USI students offer free tax assistance Feb. 2 through April 13 Through the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program (VITA), USI student volunteers will provide free tax assistance on Wednesdays, February 2 through April 13. “This is a good opportunity for people who have reasonably simple income tax returns and want to avoid having to pay for professional tax preparation services,” said Brett Long, associate professor of accounting and business law. “It is also a great experience for our accounting students.” In VITA programs, the Internal Revenue Service partners with national and local organizations to provide tax services to individuals with low to moderate income at no cost to the taxpayer. Accounting students will interview and prepare the taxes of other students and relatively low-income taxpayers who make an appointment for this service. This site will not prepare Schedule C business forms or Schedule E rental forms. Your federal and state tax returns are prepared while you wait and all taxpayers must be available to sign their returns. Preparation of returns typically takes up to two hours to complete. The sessions will be held by appointment only

in Room 1004 of the new Business and Engineering Center on the following Wednesdays: February 2, 9, 16, 23 March 2, 16, 23, 30 and April 6 and 13. Appointments will be available at 5 p.m. and 6:45 p.m. on these Wednesdays.

Individuals will be required to bring tax information, photo identification cards, and Social Security cards for themselves and their dependents. The IRS encourages electronic filing and returns will be filed electronically for those who are

eligible. Please bring copies of your 2009 tax returns if they are available. Paper returns will be prepared for those taxpayers who do not qualify for electronic filing. To make an appointment, call the College of Business at 812-464-1718.

It is a unique nonprofit facility in this area. We hold our costs down as low as possible so we can serve as many in the community as possible. We have more and more working moms that need a consistent daycare for their babies.” McDonald notes that the state of Indiana makes tuition support available to families in need based upon their income. He remains grateful to the United Way for

its fi financial nancial support without failing to menmen tion the consistent private donations to the center. “For all these years, the United Way has i ll supported t d our exisi every year financially tence. Without the United Way and without the army of individuals, couples and families that donate to this facility, it would not exist,” he insists. “It is a community-supported center. We do not stand alone. We can’t. We are so grateful for all the community has done.” He adds, “I am a retired grade school principal, and I had some energies left to work with children. The Children’s Learning Center has provided me with an opportunity and an outlet for those energies—to be with babies again. They have been ever so kind to me in this year and a half. I and all the staff want to make sure that the community knows we are here. We are here to stay. And we want to take care of your babies.”

Arts Center, from Page 1A dents come over and set up the lighting and set design for their plays because they don’t have the expertise. Our tech theatre students also do the Peppermint Pops, the Philharmonic Orchestra, and the “Nutcracker.” Of course, they get paid to do these things because they’ve got the skills to do it.” Those skills are evident in the recognition Mount Vernon Senior High School has received for its arts programs. “We have award-winning students and faculty in music theatre and visual arts,” Pfister notes. “Dana Taylor is nationally renowned with our Angelus singing group that goes all over the United States doing chamber music. We have a lot of fine, fine folks, both students and staff, that are devoted to this working. They’re excited.” Excitement spills over for another new venture starting this fall in the MSD of Mount Vernon—the launching of the pilot program for iPad classroom instruction. This technology will be introduced to one class each at Farmersville and Marrs

elementary schools and two classes at West Elementary because of its larger enrollment. In addition, two classes each will be served at Mount Vernon Junior High School and Mount Vernon Senior High School. Teachers are training now to facilitate the iPad classroom instruction this fall. The classroom teachers and each of their students will have an iPad for use in the classroom. Julie Kissinger, third grade teacher at West Elementary, is celebrating the opportunities the new technology will bring to her students. “When the district purchased the iPad for my classroom,” she says,” in effect they were purchasing a set of encyclopedias, a dictionary, a science laboratory, a personal library, math manipulatives, a calculator, a set of art supplies, a compass, a GPS system, a piano, a guitar, a set of drums, a set of bells, a set of educational videos, education games to teach and reinforce concepts in spelling, reading, writing, science and social studies, and a presen-

tation tool for each student in my classroom. Not to mention the motivational power of the tool.” Applications for the iPad are free or available at a minimal cost. “The technology broadens our ability to serve students in a cost-effective manner,” Pfister comments. Pfister said students in the pilot program will take a pretest of abilities in fall 2011 and a post-test in spring 2012 to monitor the effectiveness of iPad instruction. Eventually, the district hopes to make iPad technology a part of instruction for all students by providing mobile carts of iPads that teachers may check out for their classrooms. Training and materials are provided through the capital projects fund, so the general fund will not be touched for any funding. Creative solutions abound for educating students in the MSD of Mount Vernon. Who knows what other possibilities may come to light. After all, it is the 21st century.

Keith Spurgeon, chairman of the 2010 United Way of Posey County campaign, announced today that the campaign has raised $633,374 of the $620,000 goal. He said “We have reached 102% of the goal because of the generosity of the Posey County community. A successful campaign means being able to have services available when the community needs them.

Old National ranked among the top 25 best performing banks For the second straight year, Old National Bancorp is one of the top 25 best performing banks in the nation and the highest-rated bank in Indiana and Kentucky, according to a comprehensive Forbes Magazine ranking of the nation’s 100 largest banks. The list was published on December 20, 2010, in a Forbes.com article titled “America’s Best and Worst Banks.” Forbes. com is the online arm of Forbes Magazine. “This is another validation of Old National’s strength and stability from one of the world’s foremost business and financial publications,” said Bob Jones. “We are honored, just as we were last year, by this prestigious recognition and the dedication to strong, conservative banking and exceptional client service that it represents.” In order to measure the health and stability of the nation’s largest financial institutions, Forbes turned to SNL Financial, a renowned Charlottesville, Va.-based financial research firm. SNL examined eight key financial measures: 1) Return on average equity; 2) Net inter-

est margin; 3) Non-performing loans as a percentage of loans; 4) Non-performing assets as percentage of assets; 5) Reserves as a percentage of NPLs; 6) Tier 1 capital ratio; 7) Risk-based capital ratio; and 8) Leverage ratio. The asset size of the 100 financial institutions on the Forbes list ranges from $4.7 billion to $2.3 trillion.

By Valerie Werkmeister The finest spellers in fourth through eighth grades tested their knowledge and spelling skills last week as they met to compete for the distinction of being the best speller in Posey County. In the end, Baylee Willman, a sixth grade South Terrace Elementary School student won first place by spelling the word, “narcoleptic” correctly. It was the 36th word given during the competition. Coincidentally, last year Willman’s brother, Logan, was a runner-up for the spelling bee. She is the daughter of Mike and Michelle Willman. Good spelling skills run in the Willman family, as Michele stated she was also a champion speller during her spelling bee days in school. Baylee took home a $20 prize and will compete in the Tri-State Spelling Bee on March 5 at 11 a.m. at the University of Evansville. Last year’s winner was Valerie Muensterman from St. Wendel School.

CHURCH CHURCH HURCH

Sermon of the Week: Grace abounds in Christianity By Rev. Steven Walker The Turning Point Jesus said, “I am the light of the world.” The first thing God created was light. “God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light” Genesis 1:3. The Bible tells us that when God called the Hebrew people out of Egypt God went before Israel in the wilderness as a pillar of fire by night. The right path before them was illuminated that they might follow. Throughout the bible light is a symbol of an encounter with the divine. Moses met God through the burning bush. Upon Mount Sinai the glory of the Lord shone with such intensity Moses walked down with a tan worthy of a tanning salon commercial. Light is also a symbol of the law of Moses and the Word of the Lord. Another feature of the appearance of divine light is that it demands a response. Jesus taught about this with a simple juxtaposition: follow the light or walk in darkness. Jesus said, “I Am the Light of the World.” The first thing to notice about this saying of Jesus is its scope - the World. This is not a case where the Lord God makes his light available to one man - like Moses and the burning bush or Elijah and the chariot of fire. It is not like the Lord God appearing in a pillar of fire for the Hebrew people alone. It is not even like the transfiguration of the shining glory of Jesus revealed to his closest disciples. No, it is for everyone everywhere. Jesus says, “I am the light of the world.” There is no insider trading. There are no secret clubs. There are no haves and have nots. The light of Jesus shines for each and all. This is an important point because many would shy away from such illumination, not for defiance, but for timidity. Many believe they are not important enough for the divine light to shine for them, not spiritual enough, or not good enough. Yet the truth speaks as Jesus speaks, “I am the light of the world.” - for each and all. Another feature of the light is that it both exposes

and guides. I want to share with you a story that came to me from a hiking friend of mine, John Bitner, who just finished a 2200 mile thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail this past December. This is what he says. Hiking in the woods can be tricky at night, especially with a dim headlamp about to go out. Your mind goes into overdrive trying to process information of sounds, smells, and the feel of the trail underfoot. It's a bit spooky. I’m alone. This is not a popular section of trail. It feels sinister. I have always had good instincts, creepy accurate intuition. Something didn't seem right. I sensed a threat. But it is night and even your intuition can wander in the dark. Than it came. All at once. Suddenly there was this bright light that turned on, illuminating everything in front of me. I stopped cold in my tracks. “Who just turned this spotlight on me!”, I questioned. When you’re a combat soldier in the Army you learn about ambushes. There are two types. Far side ambush and near side ambush. A far side ambush is usually artillery. Imagine walking along and shells begin raining down upon you. That means there is a spotter in the hills calling in the strike. You’ve got to get out of there fast. A near side ambush, however, is the bad one. This is when a group of enemy is waiting closely for you to pass. As you do they open fire and toss grenades with the intention of killing you. Very deadly encounter. As the bright light was closing in on me, I realized I was in a near side ambush. Someone was coming fast, less than ten feet away. It is nighttime and dark. I know this will not be a friendly encounter. There have been, over the years, a dozen or more murders on this trail. There are some shady cats that linger. I remembered Sgt. Fuller. He could be a pain sometimes, but he cared about us. On one training exercise I was leading a squad in reacting to a near side ambush.

You've got to react as if your already dead. You've got to sell out. Your only chance is to directly attack the ambushers. Everybody turns, fires and rushes right into the attack in order to overwhelm them with fierce intensity. I thought we did okay, but he pulled me aside. Usually you called by your last name in the Army, but Sgt. Fuller had a way of getting face to face and making it personal when he wanted to make a point. He asked, "What did you do wrong John?” "I don't know,” I replied. “Violence. You've got to be violent,” he said with deadly seriousness. I braced for violence. This was not a friendly encounter. I know that when I turn around I'm going to have just a moment to evaluate the threat and respond. If I'm being attacked by a crazy backwoods guy, I'm not fooling around, I'm going for the kill. You have no idea what they've got, or what they are capable of. I've got to sell out. Sgt. Fuller’s words were propelling me to action. I threw down my right trekking pole and reached for my knife. I would use my left pole as a first defense to throw the attacker off balance. If in that split second of turning around I perceive a deadly threat, I'll be going for the throat with my knife. There is no time to be scared, but I found time anyway. I turned and the light was very bright. My attacker was right in front of me. “Oh God,” I thought, “This is it.” I couldn't believe what I saw next. It was God. Not literally, but figuratively. The bright light was the moon. I laughed and hoped no one saw that. You see all at once I stepped into a spot where the moon was no longer hidden by the mountain behind me. All at once it was clear and bright. Suddenly, I could see the trail clearly. I turned off my dim light and followed the big one up above. It wasn't attacking me, or hindering me, it was guiding me. And I was ready to kill it! Jesus said, “I am the light of the world.” Funny thing about light. It exposes everything. Have you ever had the experience of mov-

Photo by Pam Robinson. ing a piece of furniture, like a chair or sofa? You move it out of the house, onto the back of a truck, step back and look at it in the bright daylight. Doesn’t look as good at it did tucked away in a dark den. Light exposes, reveals, uncovers, that upon which it shines. For my friend John, when the moon came out from behind the mountain it seemed to him that he had been spotted, discovered, exposed and it made him feel threatened. He was ready to “kill it.” In verses 19 and 20 of John, chapter 8 Jesus said, “This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but men loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that his deeds will be exposed.” Jesus, Light of the World, does that. Exposes things. Oddly enough, this is a good thing. There is a story in the gospel of John about a women who had been caught committing adultery. The law of Moses levied the penalty - death. Some men of the village brought her to Jesus. They had condemned her and were now ready to execute her. But Jesus, Light of the World, exposed, not her, but them. He revealed their motives. “Let the one without sin cast the first stone,” Jesus spoke. They held her, condemned her as if to proclaim, “Look we do not commit this sin. We are more

moral. We, at least, don’t do that.” The light of Jesus exposed their true motive. It was not justice, not a love for the Law of the Lord, but of self-justifying condemnation. Much of what passes as righteous indignation is just this. Jesus, Light of the World, exposes things. That can be threatening to us. How do you turn this function of the Light into guidance and inspiration? [John 12:46 I have come into the world as a light, so that no one who believes in me should stay in dark-

ness.] One word - Grace. The One whose light shines is the One who died for us. Grace changes the threat into inspiration. I love how my friend John, in the moment of epiphany proclaimed, “It wasn't attacking me, or hindering me, it was guiding me. And I was ready to kill it!” Jesus, Light of the World, shines to guide us, inspire us, energize us, and warm us. We would do well to welcome this and follow. Jesus - I am - Light of the World.

OPINION

Loss of life-long friend brings back many memories The choirs of heaven have a strong, new beautiful voice. On January 18, 2011, a very special person joined those choirs. Vicki Stierley Schroeder lost her battle with cancer at the young age of 45. Vicki was a life-time friend and will be missed by many family and friends. Dave and I had left for our annual vacation on January 16 for a seven-day cruise. THE While I knew that Vicki was WAY having difficult days I did not I SEE expect the events over the IT... next few days. When I talk- BY CONNIE ed to my parents on Sunday PEARCE before leaving port, they reported that Vicki was resting at home and that her body needed to replenish white blood cells that new chemotherapy had killed. Our first stop was Key West, Fla., on Monday so we were still in the United States and able to receive phone calls. Late that afternoon I started getting the calls and texts that Vicki had taken a terrible turn for the worse and was fighting for her life in intensive care. Zion Lippe church had decided to hold a prayer service for Vicki that evening. At that point all I could do was pray for her. I kept in close contact with my niece, Brittney and my Aunt Ruth (both Redmans) until we were too far out to sea to receive messages. But I kept praying for Vicki and her family. It was not until midnight on Tuesday, I was awakened by a text that Vick, as I called her, had lost her battle with the terrible disease, and was gone. I spent the next several hours awake continuing to pray for her family and thinking of what they must be going through. Since I was on a cruise and was unable to be here for the memorial service several people have shared information about the services. There were more than a thousand visitors to Pierre Funeral Home during the visitation on Saturday. Zion Lippe United Church of Christ was overflowing with people in auxiliary rooms and in the basement during the memorial service on Sunday. As I understand, her brother Randy read a letter that was written by her husband Orvel. The funeral service included the playing of a recording of Vicki and “JJ” singing “Amazing Grace” at the end of the service. While incredibly sad, it was certainly a true celebration and tribute to Vicki’s life here on earth.

If you attended the service or read the obituaries in the papers you are aware that music was a very important part of Vicki’s life. I grew up with Vicki at Mount Zion General Baptist Church and have many memories of her, particularly her singing. Her mother, who is also very musically inclined, got a group of us together at a very young age and we would sing “specials” for our church and other churches around our denomination. I can still sing those little songs in my head nearly 50 years later. Needless to say Vicki blossomed in her music abilities where as for me, my husband encourages me to “mouth” the words and not to sing out loud. Vicki sang at some important events in my life. She and another of our childhood choir members, Toni Wade, sang together at my first wedding. Being young and naïve I asked them to sing a whole list of songs instead of just one or two. They never complained but just sang that whole list beautifully. Not only did I ask them to sing a lot of songs but I never offered to pay them. I guess I just thought they should think it was a privilege to sing at my wedding. Over the past 27 years, neither of them ever mentioned anything about it. Thank goodness I have gotten older and wiser and when my son marries in October I will make sure everyone is paid. Another special time Vicki sang was at my parent’s 50th wedding anniversary service held at Mount Zion in August of 2007. She sang one of the most beautiful songs called “Thank You.” There were very few dry eyes during that song, including the singer. Even though she was a person who dedicated her life to singing for God and to others she always was so appreciative of others touching her life. I have so many fond memories of growing up with Vicki in my life. I especially remember all of those Sunday afternoons when we took turns going to each other’s houses playing together. On New Year’s Eve our families not only saw the New Year arrive at midnight but stayed up all night and had breakfast before going home. We would play all types of games and watch that stupid movie “The Birds” every year. Since I was five years older I even babysat for Vicki, her brother and

sister, Terri, one summer. Vicki was so smart in school and made straight A’s all the way through high school. She put a lot of pressure on herself to excel. Her mother once made a comment after she graduated as valedictorian of her North Posey class that she hoped Vicki made a “B” right off the bat in college to take some of the pressure off. I really can’t tell you if she made straight A’s in college but it doesn’t really matter. I remember thinking that she could have become a doctor or anything else she wanted but all she wanted was to be a good nurse, a good wife and a good mother. Just as in everything else, Vicki excelled in those areas too. The last time I had a long talk with Vicki was at a North Posey home basketball game. We didn’t see each much in our adult lives since our children’s activities and schools took us in different directions. Catching up reminded me what a wonderful person she was in every aspect of her life. Vicki touched more lives in her short life than most people will in 80 years of their lives. I am a better person for having her in my life. I am sure those of you who knew her will agree. Friday night of our cruise was gala night, or formal night. Dave and I were standing listening to a woman singing waiting to go into dinner. I was teary-eyed, reflecting on some of these memories of Vicki. Seemingly out of nowhere someone tapped on my lower leg behind me. I turned to find a cruise employee with two small children. One of the children handed me a yellow paper flower they had made with a big red heart attached. The little girl explained that they had picked someone at random to brighten their day. I am convinced that it was sign from God that Vicki was telling me it’s OK, I am in a better place. I carried that paper flower home and have it hanging on my wall at work to remind me to be thankful for good friends and family, ones still living and ones that have passed on and for good health. My thoughts and prayers will continue for Vicki’s family in the days and months to come. There is nothing we can do for her now but we can continue to support the local Relay for Life events, have our annual physicals, do our monthly self exams and hope that cancer research will find a cure for this terrible disease in the near future.

The song that she sang for my parents “Thank You” keeps coming to my mind. So Vick, thank you for touching my life and all of the other lives you came in contact with over the 45 years of your life here. Thank You for Giving To The Lord Music & Lyrics by Ray Boltz I dreamed I went to Heaven, you were there with me. We walked upon the streets of gold beside the Crystal Sea. We heard the angels singing, then someone called your name. You turned and saw this young man, and he was smiling as he came. He said, “Friend you may not know me now,” and then he said, “But wait You used to teach my Sunday School, when I was only eight. And every week you would say a prayer before the class would start. And one day when you said that prayer, I asked Jesus in my heart.” Chorus Thank you for giving to the Lord, I am a life that was changed. Thank you for giving to the Lord, I am so glad you gave. Then another man stood before you, he said “Remember the time, A missionary came to your church, His pictures made you cry. You didn’t have much money but you gave it anyway. Jesus took that gift you gave And that’s why I’m in Heaven today” Chorus One by one they came, far as your eyes could see. Each life somehow touched by your generosity. Little things that you had done, sacrifices that you made, They were unnoticed on this earth In Heaven now proclaimed. Chorus And I know up in Heaven you’re not supposed to cry But I am almost sure there were tears in your eyes As Jesus took your hand and you stood before the Lord He said “My child look around you, Great is your reward.” Chorus

‘Bubble’ ministry effective in dealing with life’s stresses Last summer, a friend of mine started a bubble “ministry.” Each day, she would dip the wand into FOR THE a small bottle of bubbles and blow. On the exhale, RECORD she blew out calm and beauty. She watched the little BY PAM spheres reflect light and how ROBINSON far they traveled. Her bubble blowing was an inexpensive way to have fun. She encouraged friends to do the same, especially when they started to recite a litany of woes. My friend was laying any burdens down and finding happiness and joy in a simple pleasure. She was letting go. Life is a process of letting go. We all understand the need to release such pent-up emotions as frustration, anger, anxiety, pain or depression. A smile a day helps keep the doctor away. Yet, letting go of negative en-

ergy is only one way of letting go. Often, we are called upon to let go of people as well as emotions. Relocating because of work means, for example, we’ll say tearful goodbyes to neighbors and friends. At other times, the grace simply leaves a relationship, whether with a friend, a lover or a business associate. For whatever reason, we realize we need to let go so our spirits can stretch and grow. Perhaps easier to discuss is letting go of things. Articles on de-cluttering the home and work space abound. Experts say we packrats should keep only what we need and use and give away or sell the rest. Simplicity is bliss. Of course, we wouldn’t have amassed so many things in the first place if not for

the emotional bond we create with them. (Sometimes I wonder if we don’t relate to our things better than to the people around us.) Certain questions surface every time we get serious about freeing up breathing space for ourselves. Won’t authorities actually want my daughter’s preschool artwork in the presidential collection when she reaches the Oval Office? Would it ever be fashionable to carry the same handbag on all occasions? Will Beanie Babies make a comeback?

Whether we’re talking about emotions, people or things—letting go is difficult. The familiar, even if unhealthy, is predictable. We know what to expect from nursing our anger, staying in a loveless relationship or hanging on to unworn clothes. We believe we are in control, but in reality, we can’t possibly take charge of our lives when we’re so weighed down and conflicted. We can expect to burst a few bubbles before we finally let our troubles waft away into thin air.

Gavel Gamut’s “Rock It Man!” I am tired of brown snow and am pining for the return of warm weather and Robert Warren Batts. Warren plays his guitar and sings classic rock and roll. You can hear him for free in the courtyard of the Red Geranium restaurant in New Harmony. Peg and I and our entire neighborhood caught Warren’s last show of 2010. Of course, since our entire neighborhood consists of the Chuck and Bonnie Minnette family right across Durlin Road from us, Warren’s standing room only audience also included numerous non-neighbors. His stage sobriquet came about when he would be playing his guitar with Bill Haley and The Comets and fans would be screaming, “Rock it, Man!” Warren got started playing rock and roll when he was a twelve year old boy scout in West Frankfort, Illinois. His scoutmaster took him and a few fellow scouts to a Scout-A-Rama Jamboree where they played every song they knew, both of them. During his long career in music Warren has performed with several bands that have shared billing with top name artists that read like a listing from the Rock and Roll Hall

of Fame. He and his bands have shared billing with Elvis Presley, Wanda Jackson, Ferlin Husky, Little Rich-

GAVEL GAMUT BY JUDGE JIM REDWINE ard, Ricky Nelson, Buddy Holly and the Crickets, The Coasters and the Beatles, among others. The name of Warren’s first band was The Rhythm Rockers followed by The Crescendos, which was his band throughout high school. During high school in West Frankfort he lived near Louise Harrison Caldwell who was the sister of one George Harrison. Louise was an English girl who married an American soldier from Benton, Illinois. When the teenage George Harrison would come to visit Louise, she would ask Warren to befriend her brother. As Warren and George both played guitar and liked that exciting new music, rock and roll, they formed a lifelong friendship. In fact, when George Harrison and The Beatles

were the opening act for Bill Haley and The Comets in Hamburg, Germany in 1962, George touted his friend, Warren, and introduced him to Bill Haley who hired him to be a guitar player and singer with The Comets. Warren remembers when George Harrison and he were teenagers together in southern Illinois and George tried out for a band there named The Egyptian Combos; they turned him down. Warren has played his guitar and sung at many places throughout the world including numerous places in southern Indiana and southern Illinois. He was the Duke Boys first guitar player back in the 1980’s. Warren left the Duke Boys to go back with Bill Haley’s Comets under the leadership of bass player Al Rappa. Haley had died almost broke in 1981. Warren and the new Comets performed from 1986 through the 1990’s. Hopefully, the Rock It, Man! will again be performing every Friday night from May to September at the Red Geranium. Our whole neighborhood is lost in the 50’s, 60’s, 70’s and 80’s while we practice up for his return.

Letter to the Editor Alzheimer’s fighters must continue efforts Following the unanimous approval of Congress earlier this month, and the thousands of e-mails and messages by advocates sent to the White House, President Obama has signed the National Alzheimer's Project Act (NAPA) into law. Once implemented, NAPA will ensure our nation has what HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius calls an "aggressive and coordinated national strategy" to confront the present and rapidly escalating Alzheimer crisis. We celebrate this victory for the 5.3 million people who live with Alzheimer's in this country and their nearly 11 million caregivers. It is a victory for the more than 300,000 other advocates who stood up and demanded that our nation's leaders create a plan for

combating this disease. The journey to take NAPA from “concept” to “law of the land” is a victory for all of us. Now we will return to the hard, but rewarding, work that lies ahead. NAPA is a milestone, an important step forward, but it is not the destination. We can only arrive there through therapies that stop this disease and improved care and support for those contending with it. We must work tirelessly

to maintain the momentum and ensure NAPA is implemented effectively so that it lives up to its promise. There is no time to waste. Please continue to stand up in the fight against Alzheimer's. We can't succeed without you so please ask others to join in this effort. We'll need to call on every available voice to succeed in creating a world without Alzheimer's disease. Tom Bodkin, National Director of the Alzheimer’s Association

Vikings beat Spartans, get ‘dunked’ by high-flying Tigers

North Posey senior Eric Wargel goes up for two points in the paint during action this weekend. Wargel has come off the bench to be a force in the past two games, scoring nine and seven points, respectively. Photo by Dave Pearce By Dave Pearce The North Posey Vikings had to settle for a split of weekend contests on Saturday night as they fell to the Princeton Tigers by an 81-

67 count on homecoming night. In front of a packed house at North Posey High School, those who came just for homecoming festivities were treated to an excel-

lent basketball game as well. The Vikings led by two at half-time and trailed by only five heading into the final period. That’s when the Princeton defense, athleticism, and size took over as the Chavis twins teamed for 42 points to add to Jalen Packer’s 31. The Vikings fell behind at the outset as Princeton’s three-quarter court press hampered the Vikings. Princeton jumped out to a 9-2 lead and a romp appeared to be on. However, there is no “quit” in Viking Coach Matt Wadsworth and this year’s Vikings. Following a time out, the Vikings outscored the Tigers 9-2 in the next three minutes and tied the contest at 11 at the 4:11 mark of the first period. “They are not going to extend their threequarter court press,” North Posey Coach Matt Wadsworth said. “You have to attack it. I thought we were slow to recognize the openings but we did eventually get it figured out and we found the openings and made a run. You have to give our kids a lot of credit.” The Vikings led by as many as six as they finished the first quarter with a 19-13 lead. But good teams don’t go away and the Tigers showed why they are one of the topranked teams in Indiana as they pulled even at 29 with 2:39 to go in the second quarter. Jourdan Cox broke the tie with his only basket of the contest to give the Vikings another lead. But each time the Vikings appears to be making a move to put the game away, one of the Princeton big three stepped up. After the Cox basket, Nick Neidig swished a 3-pointer to put the Vikings ahead 34-29 but Packer answered with a pair of free throws. Dillon Davenport then found Eric Wargel open inside for a bucket. But with 8.7 showing on the first-half clock, Packer banked in a long-distance 3-pointer to pull the Tigers to within 36-34 at the half. Wargel had probably his best two games of the season on back-to-back nights as he had nine against South Knox on Friday and seven against Princeton on Saturday. “Right now, Eric is playing with the mindset of not worrying about scoring,” Wadsworth said. “What that has probably allowed him to do is score more because he screens more and that opens him up to get more rebounds. And defensively, he has been doing a good job of going to the glass.” The Tigers wasted little time tying the score out of the break as a Chavis dunk tied the score at 36. Neither team was effective offensively for the next couple of minutes as the Tigers’ quickness resulted in some Viking turnovers but on the defensive end, the Vikings stayed in the game. Packer scored off a steal and a break to give the Tigers a 38-36 lead before Cameron Calvert spotted up and shot over the taller Chavis to tie the game at 38-all. After another Packer bucket, Calvert again shook loose inside to tie the game at 40. “I thought Cameron Calvert did a nice job

inside,” Wadsworth said. “Rontrey Chavis was going to give him the catch in there and Cameron made some nice shots. But what happened with our interior passing was that they were sagging in too much and we were passing too much across the lane instead of back out to the perimeter and around the outside.” But another fast-break dunk, this time a rim-rattling throw-down, seemed to spark the Tigers. Calvert answered inside but you could sense the carnivore Tigers were preparing to open up the prey they had wounded. Wadsworth took a time out to try and stem the tide but the Tigers were roaring. Following another Packer bucket, Chavis got a steal and was fouled on yet another dunk attempt. He hit both free throws. A tipin by “the other” Chavis gave Princeton a 4640 lead, their largest since the beginning of the contest. But again, the Vikings attempted to answer. Wargel went into the tall timber and put back a missed shot and Nick Scheller nailed a 3-pointer from the top of the key to pull the Vikings back to within 46-45 Two Dillon Davenport free throws was all the Vikings could muster the remainder of the quarter. Unfortunately, they were sandwiched between a pair of 3-point baskets and the Vikings trailed 52-47 entering the final period. “In that situation, you have to stick with the game-plan until the very end but tonight, they did a nice job of hitting their free throws and not making mistakes,” Wadsworth complimented the Tigers. “As a coach, you hope you can force a turnover or two or get a shutout on a trip down the floor or a missed shot and a rebound. To their credit, that did not happen tonight.” With less than 10 seconds gone in the fourth, the Tigers had nailed a 3-pointer and followed that with yet another dunk and the Tigers were out to a 10-point 57-47 lead with 6:47 to go. Calvert picked up his third foul shortly afterward. But on the ensuing play, Calvert came up with a steal and found Davenport for a bucket and the foul. After a Princeton miss, Davenport hit two more free throws to pull to within 57-51 but the Vikings would get no closer. “Big games come down to little plays,” Wadsworth said after the Princeton game. “Free throws, free throw block-outs, meeting the pass, and transition defense…we need games like this to get us ready for sectional. You’re not going to stop everybody on every single possession.” Wadsworth complimented Packer on stepping up for his team in a big game. “He stepped up for them tonight. We put three different guys on him over the course of the game and we kept rotating with guarding him but good players are going to step up and make plays,” Wadsworth said. “That’s

Wildcat champion Hoehn leads nine from Posey into regional By Steve Joos One champion and nine Regional qualifiers, especially in the face of another strong showing by Indiana’s premier high school wrestling program, Evansville Mater Dei. And the Posey County mat coaches were still a bit displeased with how North Posey and Mount Vernon performed in Saturday’s Central Sectional. Led by 130-pound champion Jon Hoehn, the Wildcats placed five grapplers in this weekend’s Castle Regional, while finishing fourth in the meet with 128 points, while the Vikings put four in the Regional despite tying Harrison (just two qualifiers) for seventh place (the Vikings and Warriors each had 67 points). Jon Hoehn will be joined by teammates Adam Hoehn (119 pounds), Byron Konrath (135), Blake Marshall (152) and heavyweight Teddy O’Connell at Castle this weekend. Adam Hoehn finished fourth in his weight class, while the other three took second at the Sectional. The size of Mount Vernon’s contingent was on the low end of the Cats’ expectations, according to coach Todd Gilpin. “It was a worst-case scenario,” according to coach Gilpin. “Coming in, we figured on a number between five and eight who had a legitimate chance. We’d have been happy with seven, but we ended up with five at the low end of what we expected. We’re disappointed as a staff, we had a lot of close matches that would have made the day a little better for us.” But the Cats had a champion and four second-place finishers, which Gilpin said puts them in a better position for the Regional. North Posey coach Chad Hoehn was pleased to see four of his grapplers advance, but he thought the entire team could have wrestled better. “Moving on to the Regional is a big achievement,” Hoehn Mount Vernon’s Jon Hoehn emerged as the lone champion for Posey County in the Central Sectional on Saturday. Here, he inflicts punishment on his Mater Dei opponent during the finals. Hoehn claimed an 8-0 decision. Photo by Tyler Butler

Lady Vikings step up game. win two of three By Dave Pearce The North Posey High School Lady Vikings have certainly turned things around. They appear to be playing their best basketball at just the right time. The Lady Vikings proved that this week, taking two of three conference contests and taking the third to the wire as they trailed Gibson Southern by a bucket with a minute to go before succumbing by six on Saturday. But earlier in the week, the Vikings had placed themselves in position to possibly share the Pocket Athletic Conference title as they defeated South Spencer at home and then handed Forest Park a loss in Ferdinand. That set up Saturday’s big game against the Titans. But even a month ago, very few figured the Lady Vikings would be playing for a share of the title. But things have changed. “Before Christmas, we simply could not have put a 1ST team like this away,” Stroud said of his bold defenders. “But we did tonight. We’re still headed in the direction Nichle Perry blows by her South Spencer defender on we want them to go and her way to a career-high 29 points. Photo by Dave Pearce I can tell you, this is a lot

more fun than the first half of the year.” On senior night, all four seniors contributed in a big way as they defeated South Spencer’s Lady Rebels. Nichole Perry led a determined Viking squad as she hit 13-of-13 free throws on her way to a career-high 29 points in the win over South Spencer. Perry is shooting over 90 percent from the line for the season. After this game, she had hit 102 of 114 for the season. But her all-around game accompanied with the fact that her teammates have picked up the defense have made the difference as the Lady Vikings have scratched and clawed their way back into title contention as they will play in the Forest Park Sectional next week. Her performance overshadowed an outstanding shooting performance, especially in the early going, by Kendyl Ahrens. Her accuracy from long range early opened up the inside as the Lady Rebels were forced to play defense all the way to the 3-point line. Ahrens finished with 14 points. During Sunday afternoon’s draw, the Lady Vikings learned they will have

to duplicate their effort of this week against Forest Park as they will face the Rangers in the second game of the sectional. North Posey Coach Tracy Stroud could not be more proud of his team and their efforts. While admitting the win over South Spencer was not a thing of beauty, he also complimented the defense of Lady Rebels. “Their defense had a lot to do with that,” Stroud said after the game. “They got us off-balance.” Stroud said the Lady Rebels surprised the Vikings with their defensive toughness. “We had scouted them and they came out in something that they had not done in any of our scouting,” Stroud said with a chuckle. “It took us about a quarter to get used to what they were doing. But after that first quarter, I thought we started attacking real well and playing real well.” The teams traded baskets for much of the first quarter as offense appeared to be at a premium. But a flurry at quarter’s end gave the Lady Vikings an 18-13 lead and they would never be really threatened.

North Posey outscored the Lady Rebels 14-6 in the second period to all but put the game away by half-time. The Lady Vikings led 32-19 at the half. Perry hit the first five points for the Lady Vikings in the third period as they a built lead of 37-19, and holding on for a 44-27 lead at the end of the third period. Perry’s 3-pointer opened the fourth-quarter scoring, as well as a 20-point difference and the Lady Rebels were never able to recover. They pulled to within 5228 about two minutes into the second period but Lisa Garris hit a free throw and finished on an assist from Katelyn Esche to put the game back on ice. This week’s action at Forest Park found the Lady Vikings on the winning end of a 47-41 decision. Perry finished with 21 points in that contest. She hit “only” 6-of-9 free throws in that contest but got help from Ahrens again as she finished with 11 points while Esche did a good job of running the point and Morgan Stierlry found her way out of a shooting slump to bury a pair of 3-point baskets in the contest.

Viking basketball, from Page 1A opportunities for ourselves to win the big games. You can’t always depend on the other team to make the mistake that is going to give us the victory.” The Tigers then hit their free throws down the stretch and played a smothering defense to outscore the Vikings 31-25 in the final period to take the win. “We have been talking in terms of trying to build our bench and on Friday, Eric Wargel came in and missed a shot but then tied up the ball on the rebound… just hustle plays. Nick Neidig came in and hit a big shot and Colton Motz played and got several rebounds and we held their guards in the first half,” Wadsworth said of the lanky senior. “Those are plays that help you win games. People tend to look at the scoring but it is those little things that stand out in coaches’ minds. Now, we are getting to the point to where we have several guys we can run in and out and that is what it takes to make a tournament run.” With the win, Princeton moved to 12-2 on the season while the Vikings are 11-2.

Calvert had on Saturday night. Photo by Dave Pearce 11 and Wargel seven and Neidig five. Cox finished with two. On Friday night, the Vikings defeated a notoriously-tough South Knox Warrior squad and pulled out a 49-38 win. Wadsworth was pleased with the effort, especially on the defensive end of the floor. “We knew they were a team that was going to come after you defensively and I think that when you watch them play, they are almost a carbon copy of us,” Wadsworth said. “There are similarities on both offense and defense. They have tried to build their team around defense.” During a stretch of the third quarter when it appeared the Spartans were going to tie the contest, Cox hit seven-of-eight Viking points to keep the ball rolling and the win coming. “Jourdan is the kind of player who can do that,” Wadsworth said of the junior. “We know that and that’s something we want him to know and to do again down the road.” Cox led the team with 13 To schedule a Heart Risk Screening against the Spartans while call 812.485.5233.

Rappite girls split, Posey teams get tough sectional draws By Steve Joos The New Harmony girls’ basketball team won big and lost big last week. The Lady Rappites capped a week of split decisions Saturday with a 54-18 rout of visiting Agape Christian after being on the wrong end of a 53-28 blowout Tuesday in Tell City. “We stopped pressing after the first quarter,” coach Jennifer Toopes said. “We stopped passing at halftime and stopped our fast break and defending the ball in the second half.” Kelsey Owen and Morgan Mathews each scored 16 points as New Harmony went to its post players more, which opened more options for Owen and Matthews. The Lady Rappites held their annual breast cancer awareness program Saturday. The girls and boys teams for both New Harmony and Agape Christian wore pink socks and pink wristbands in honor of breast cancer patients, as did the officials for both games. Dawn Worman of St. Mary’s Medical Center in Evansville and a representative of the Evansville Komen for the Cure chapter received a check for approximately $126 in donations raised at the game and pink game ball autographed by the teams from both schools. Two Lady Rappites hit double fugues Tuesday at Tell City. That was the good news. The bad news? Only three New Harmony players got into the scoring column in a 53-28 loss to the Lady Marksmen. Owen scored 12 points and Workman stuck in 10, but only one other Lady Rappite-Matthews, with six tallies-scored. Tell City also put two players in double figures (McKenzie Hayes with a game-high 15 points and Logan Flanagan with 11), but seven other girls scored for them as the Lady Marksmen took an 18-8 lead in the first quarter, stretched it to 36-12 at halftime and took a 41-18 advantage into the fourth chapter. The Lady Rappites are going to be busy this week. In addition to Friday’s regularly scheduled home game with South Spencer, New Harmony is going to make up a pair of postponed contests as well. They will host Tecumseh tonight (Tuesday) to make up the contest which was snowed out on Jan. 20 and then travel to Shoals Saturday to face the Lady Jug Rox in a game which had been set for Jan. 22, but was postponed due to the weather and road conditions around Shoals. A Jan. 21 game with Harrison which was added to the schedule late was snowed out and will not be made up unless Harrison drew a bye in the upcoming Class 4A Sectional, then the game would be made up on Monday, Feb. 7. For the third straight year, a record number of schools have been drawn and placed into brackets in anticipation of the 36th Annual IHSAA Girls Basketball State Tournament presented by Indiana Farm Bureau Insurance. A total of 397 schools and 5,284 student-athletes will be participating in the tourney which begins in eight days. Sectional games are scheduled to begin Monday, Feb. 7, and

run through Saturday, Feb. 12, with the regional round slated for Feb. 19 and semi-states on Feb. 26. The state finals will be played Saturday, March 5, at the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum in Fort Wayne for the second straight year. In Class A, three-time defending state champion Fort Wayne Canterbury will take on home-standing Fort Wayne Blackhawk in Sectional 51. The Cavaliers, ranked third in the most recent coaches poll, have won 20 straight tournament games which is tied for the fifth-longest string in tournament history. Only two schools – Fort Wayne Bishop Luers and Heritage Christian – have gone on to win four straight state titles. In 3A, top-ranked Mount Vernon (Fortville) meets Rushville in Sectional 27 at Hamilton Heights. Class 2A No. 1 Wabash will face host Northfield in the Sectional 39. Vincennes Rivet, No. 1 in Class A, will meet Loogootee in Sectional 63 at Barr-Reeve.

Wrestling, from Page B1 said. “But I am not happy with just moving on and I think that’s what our kids are happy with.” Jon Hoehn had the county’s best performance, capping a commanding perfor-

mance by blanking Mater Dei’s Max Mangold in an 8-0 major decision to claim the crown at 130 pounds. “Me riding legs is what controlled the match,” Hoehn said. “I rode legs for quite a while, so I was just getting used to them.” Hoehn was riding legs and staying on his. In the early going Saturday, he stayed one his legs long enough to put the competition on their backs, sticking Dustin Sheppard of Harrison in 1:01 and then pinning Reitz’s Mitchell Schnarr in 3:17 to reach the championship. Staying on his feet has always been a key for the Wildcat junior, who will take a 35-3 record to Castle. “He’s hard to take down,” Gilpin said. “You score on your feet and he does a lot of scoring from the top and that makes you a pretty good wrestler.” The Cats were hampered

by injury and illness in practice prior to the meet and that bothered them Saturday. Adam Hoehn won a close match in the opener, but was pinned in the semifinals. He snapped back to post an 8-1 decision over Harrison’s Hadley Brown in the consolation semis, but got pinned again in the third-place bout. Konrath had two pins to reach the finals at 135, but dropped a 7-5 decision to Derek Dowdy of Reitz, who got the 135 title. Marshall pulled out a 6-4 victory in the semis at 152, but he was caught in a move and was pinned by one of those Mater Dei guys, Evan Weinzapfel, for the 152 title, while O’Connell also ran into a Mater Dei grappler (Justin VanWinkle) in his title tilt and lost 10-0. The Vikings will be represented by 103-pounder Tyler Stock, who finished second in his class after being pinned by Damon Kuhn of Reitz with 18 seconds left in the second period of the championship match, along with Michael Frymire (135), Gary Martin (152) and heavyweight Austin Little, all three finished fourth. North Posey Coach Chad Hoehn felt that Stock did a good job in the semifinals, where he nosed out Mater Dei’s Wyatt Seng 4-3 to earn a shot at the title, while the rest of the team, qualifiers included, had rockier paths. “Frymire fell into a move and then wrestled terrible the rest of the day,” the coach said. Gary Martin got luck on injury defaults and Austin Little went 2-2. I don’t feel they wrestled that good. The cards fell right for them. That’s my opinion.” The team’s mental approach seems to be their biggest problem, Hoehn explained, adding that even the Regional qualifiers may have been beaten before taking the mat. “Tyler wrestled real well in the semifinals,” the coach said. “He thought he could win. In the finals, he didn’t think he could win, went out and got pinned.” As for Frymire, he started off in good shape, pinning Luke Petring of Memorial in 5:25, but then he was caught in a move against Konrath and was stuck in 18 seconds. Although he bounced back to nail North’s Cameron King in 43 seconds, the junior middleweight was himself pinned by Quinn Schroeder of Mater Dei in 1:29 for third place. Martin led something of a charmed life after dropping a 21-5 technical fall to Memorial grappler Matt Prasek in the first match of the day. An injury default put the Viking sophomore into the third place match, where he was a little more competitive in a rematch against Prasek, but still lost 7-0. Little started out with a fall over Harrison’s Trey Finch and then battled O’Connell

through three periods before falling 4-2 on a takedown in overtime. He decisioned Joe Schapker of Reitz 2-0 to reach the third place bout, but then he was pinned by Jesse Hohl of Central. Hoehn was concerned about Stock’s lack of progress over the course of the season, while he felt that the trouble with the rest of the team was all between the ears. They just need some confidence, he said. Each of the Wildcats will have things to work on, Jon Hoehn included. He will have to work on his feet, especially keeping the stiffer postseason competition for going deeper after his legs, while the other grapplers need to have more energy and remember that the first match is the one which really matters, since it will be the one which determines who advances to the Semistate. Four Wildcats wrestled in the fifth-place matches, including two hard-luck grapplers who redeemed themselves by finishing fifth. Jacob Ewers (189) forfeited his first match and decided to concentrate on finishing third after an illness and head injury left him unable to practice last week, but he suffered a tough 3-1 loss at the hands of Harrison’s Dan Skie in the consolation semis. Ewers came back to dominate the fifth-place bout, beating James Carter Vasquez of Reitz 7-1. At 215, Aaron Roberts came back twice, registering a 40-second pin over Memorial’s Drew Miles after losing in the first round. Then the Wildcat junior dropped a 4-2 heartbreaker to Chris Procacina of Harrison, but he came back again, pinning Bosse’s Ty Noblett in 1:24 for fifth place. Julian Suar (103) and Michael Rynkiewich (145) each finished sixth in their weight classes. Freshman Suar was pinned three times on the day, including one to Memorial’s Hunter Arney in the fifth-place bout at 103. Rynkiewich was a bit more fortunate (he wasn’t pinned), but still came up short, losing 8-2 to Robert Ralph of Harrison for fifth place. Seth Elderkin (140) was the lone Viking in the fifthplace matches. He was pinned twice before doing some sticking of his own, pinning Harrison’s Brad Miller in 3:19 for fifth place. The team standings could have been billed as “Mater Dei against the World.” with the world a decided underdog. Mater Dei racked up 296 and one-half points to win the Sectional, finishing well ahead of second-place Reitz (225), while Memorial (177) came in third ahead of Mount Vernon. Central (101) and North (96 and one-half) came in 5-6 ahead of North Posey and Harrison, with Bosse (30) rounded out the field.

Lady Wildcats regain health, swagger in pair of wins By Steve Joos There are a lot of terms in the modern lexicon for feeling as if one can achieve something. Last week the Mount Vernon girls’ basketball team regained its what? Swagger? Mojo? Groove? How about its confidence? Whatever it was, the Lady Wildcats got it back last week, shaking off a two-game losing streak with three one-sided wins, including two on the road. Carynn Koch scored 16 Saturday afternoon as the Lady Wildcats doubled up on the homestanding Tell City Lady Marksmen, 56-28, to cap a week that started with a Senior night romp over Carmi 53-28 and continued in Evansville on Thursday with a 58-43 win over Harrison. “We’ve got our confidence back,” coach Steve Mitchell said. “We’ve been focusing on getting off to a good start and we were able to do that, which is something that we haven’t been doing lately.” Getting off to those strong starts have been a big key for Mount Vernon this season. At Tell City, the Lady Cats got off to that strong start and stayed that that way for three quarters. Utilizing a stiff pressure defense, Mount Vernon held the Lady Marksmen to two points in the opening chapter and led 15-2 at the first stop. That bulge went to 32-9 at the intermission and 46-17 after three quarters. The press was a big factor at the Lady Cats forced 27 turnovers in the first half. They also got plenty of backup for Carynn Koch and Jacey Ritzert, who added 10 points to the cause. “Another thing which made it a good day is that a lot of kids got to play,” Mitchell explained. “We need to see who is going to step up among the younger girls. We have two seniors (Carynn Koch and Jenny Koch) who are going leave some big shoes to fill and we’re looking at who’s going to fill them now.” Some of those reserves showed very well what they could do, as Rachel Cash scored five points and Charlotte Roberts four. The Lady Cats got 14 points from their reserves, in some cases matching the output of the starters. Megan Randall added nine tallies for the Lady Cats, while Amy Seifert and Ellen Foster (another reserve) each scored three points for the Lady Cats, while Jenny Koch and Bailee Schelhorn added two points apiece. Lauren Stemple and Jade Dixon rounded out the Mount Vernon offense with a point each. Mackenzie Hayes led the Lady Marksmen with nine points. The public address announcer at Harrison had trouble pronouncing Carynn Koch’s name all night Thursday, but it might have been Ritzert that they will remember. The sophomore forward scored 17 points as the Lady Wildcats jumped out to a big lead and then put the Lady Warriors away with a similar surge in the quarter en route to a 58-43 victory in Evansville. “We talked about we lost a couple on the road and we wanted to change our mindset a little bit,” Mitchell said. “We wanted to change the tempo, and I think we did the first quarter.” The Lady Wildcats may have relaxed a bit too much in the second chapter, while Harrison shut them down offensively, allowing just six points. But the Lady Cats stormed out after halftime, helped by a switch to a 1-3-1 half-court trapping defense. “We had a good third quarter,” the coach said. “Our 1-3-1 half-court trap really turned the tide for us, it got us some easy baskets and got us into our rhythm a little bit, so the half-court trap really helped us out.” Ritzert did a lot of the shooting, but the girl with the first name the game announcer couldn’t get straight was feeding

her a number of those shots off the high-low, according to the coach. Ritzert scored six of the game’s first eight points as the Lady Cats blanked Harrison for the first five minutes of the game, only to have DeAsia Phillips spark a 7-2 run with a three-pointer that put the Lady Warriors on the scoreboard for the first time. But after Harrison trimmed the lead to 10-7 with 2:49 to go in the opening chapter, Randall hit a jumper and Mount Vernon scored the next seven points, taking a 17-7 lead at the break. Free throws by the two front court players were Mount Vernon’s only second-quarter points until late in the period and they helped the Lady Cats hold off Harrison’s biggest run of the night, a five-point streak that cut Mount Vernon’s edge to 19-18 on a pair of Elayna Dorsey free throws with 1:38 to go. Ritzert responded with a bucket and Carynn Koch put one in at the buzzer to open a five-point gap at halftime 23-18. After that, the Lady Cats went to the trap and snared the Lady Warriors at the start of the third quarter. Dixon and Jenny Koch scored to open the third quarter, stretching the Mount Vernon lead to 27-18. Dorsey downed a pair of free throws for Harrison’s first points of the half, Dixon put back a rebound and Kolaiah Hawkins scored before Mount Vernon went on an 8-0 run to break things open. Dorsey once again broke the string for Harrison, but Ritzert connected on two more shots to give the Lady Wildcats a 4123 bulge entering the fourth quarter. The Lady Cats slowed it down in the second half and hit 16 of 20 free throws on the night, one of their best efforts from the stripe this season, according to Mitchell. Randall hit all of seven of her free throw tries and finished with 15 points, while Jenny Koch added eight and Carynn Koch put in seven The trap enabled Mount Vernon to limit Harrison to seven second-half field goals, four of which came after the issue had been decided. “That was probably the best we’ve run it (the half-court trap) all year,” Mitchell said. “When you go into the tournament, you need several different defenses, so we were happy with that.” Stemple and Seifert each scored four points for Mount Vernon, while Dixon put in three. Phillips paced Harrison with 16 points, while Dorsey added 12. The reserves nosed out the Lady Warriors 35-32 in the preliminary, as Roberts scored 10 points to pace a balanced attack. Foster added nine points and Shelby Ritzert five, while Schelhorn and Cash each chipped in four, Cheyenne Strobel two and Erica Winiger one. Thursday’s win snapped a three-game road losing streak for Mount Vernon and it came after the Lady Wildcats snapped a two-game slide earlier in the week. All of the things the Lady Cats had been doing well until last week they rediscovered Tuesday night in a 55-28 rout of visiting Carmi. Defensively, they blanked the Lady Bulldogs 13-0 in the first quarter and never looked back, opening a 26-11 halftime bulge and then outscoring the Illinoisans 15-5 in the third quarter to blow out to a 41-16 lead entering the final eight minutes. “It was a good game,” Mitchell said. “A lot of kids got to play, a lot of kids got to score and I was really happy for our seniors. They ended up going undefeated at home this year and they went out with a win, which was big.” The Lady Bulldogs were a little short-handed Tuesday and Mitchell complimented them for their efforts. He also praised the seniors (Jenny Koch and Carynn Koch) for sticking with the program and for their accomplishments this season. Offensively, the Lady Cats got points from 10 different

players, led by Carynn Koch’s 14 points. Dixon added eight tallies, while Jenny Koch, Cash and Ritzert each knocked down six. Randall chipped in four points, while Stemple and Roberts each put in four. Shelby Ritzert added two points. Sydney Clark led the Lady Bulldogs with 15 points. Mount Vernon also took the reserve game 40-19 behind Shelby Ritzert’s 17 points. Schelhorn added eight points, Roberts six, Foster five and Strobel four. A lack of depth hurt the Lady Cats in their recent 58-52 loss at Jasper, Mitchell said. “We only have seven players in our rotation,” the coach explained. “Jenny Koch wasn’t with the team due to a death in her family. That was six players. Then Jacey Ritzert injured her hand in practice Friday, and that left us with five and onehalf.” That meant an ineffective backcourt which couldn’t compete with Jasper’s inside game, the coach said. But despite that ineffectiveness, Mount Vernon was able to make a game out of it, but the Lady Wildcats trailed at each stop, however, falling behind 11-10 after the first quarter, 2118 at halftime and 39-32 after three chapters. “We played better, but we had some fatigue,” Mitchell said. “I would like to have some of the younger players step up and help give these girls some rest.” Mitchell is especially looking to the reserve team for some help and has talked to the team about that. Dixon paced the Lady Cats with 15 points, while Carynn Koch added 13 and Randall 11as the short-handed Mount Vernon crew did manage to put three girls in double figures. Stemple chipped in seven points, Ritzert four and Seifert two. Meagan Sternberg scored 23 points to lead Jasper, while Shelby Merder added 22. Jasper also took the reserve game 27-19. Schelhorn led the team with six points, while Foster put in five, and Roberts four. Strobel and Shelby Ritzert each put in two points.

Nixon found guilty of bugging the ‘Cats, scoring 28 to lead Titans By Steve Joos Let’s make one thing perfectly clear. Nixon bugged the Mount Vernon boys’ basketball team Friday night at Gibson Southern. Kyle Nixon, that is. The junior guard for the Gibson Southern Titans burned the Wildcats for 28 points, including six three-pointers, as the Titans held off a furious rally by the Cats in second half for a 61-55 win. Nixon may have been the one, but some of the same old troubles that have hung up the Cats over the course of the season caused them problems Friday, according to coach Gary Wilsey. “We created some opportunities for ourselves defensively,” Wilsey said. “We did some better things rebounding-wise and we had the opportunity to get back into the game, but unfortunately, I’m not really sure why, if it’s unfamiliarity with what to do in close ball games, but unfortunately, we kicked it around.” Wilsey thought that the Cats had plenty of opportunities, but they couldn’t take advantage of them. “It’s like the same old, same old,” the coach said. “For whatever reason, we don’t come out ready to play.” Mount Vernon knew that Gibson Southern was going to come out ready to play on their homecoming night, but the Wildcats couldn’t match that energy. And while the Cats were kicking away some of their opportunities, Nixon had them to kick around. First, he saw Jacob Steinhart’s ice-breaking bucket in the first quarter and matched it with a trey to give Gibson Southern the lead. After Andrew Cooper stretched the Titan lead to 5-4, Steinhart pulled the Cats back to within a point and then Nixon scored the next five as Gibson Southern put in nine unanswered tallied to open a 14-4 bulge. A fadeaway jumper by Aaron Straub made the score 14-6, but the Titans closed out the period with a 7-2 run and led 21-8 at the first break. “We didn’t come out with a lot of bounce and a lot of energy,” Wilsey said. “So when we came out in our 1-3-1 defense, they did a great job of going to the corners. They shot well, we couldn’t cover very well, but we also didn’t rebound very well.” The Titans didn’t do anything the Cats didn’t think they

would do, but Mount Vernon wasn’t able to match Gibson Southern’s intensity and that troubled the coaches. The Cats trimmed the gap to six points at 27-21 late in the second quarter, but Gibson Southern stretched things out again. Nixon drained the third of his six three-pointers and Cooper knocked down another shot to make the halftime score 32-21 Titans. It was a pattern that repeated itself often and worsened as the Wildcats tried to mount a serious comeback in the second half. Trailing 37-27, Brian Koch hit a layup, Austin Goebel downed a turnaround jumper and Straub converted a threepoint play, pulling the Cats to within five points at 39-34 with just over two minutes left in the third quarter, but Spencer Schmitt’s shot rolled in and Nixon struck again from long range before Steinhart put back a rebound and Straub converted another old-fashioned three-point play, sending Mount Vernon into the final chapter down 44-39. Grant Schmitt rolled in a shot at the outset of the fourth quarter, stretching the lead back to seven points, but buckets by Geobel and Steinhart pulled the Wildcats back to within three at 46-43. Two Steven Lewis free throws made it 48-43, but Steinhart drained one from long distance, cutting the lead to 48-46. That would be as close as the Cats would get. Mount Vernon couldn’t cash in after a traveling call negated a Gibson Southern bucket, threw the ball away on another play and watched as the Titans score six straight tallies to open a 54-46 advantage. Mount Vernon made one last run, as Jason Stemple hit a pair of charity tosses and Straub nailed a trey to make the score 58-55 with a minute left in the contest, but the Cats couldn’t get any closer and two free throws with 9.5 seconds to go all but sealed the deal for Gibson Southern. Once again, Nixon was the one. “The sad thing is we knew he (Nixon) was good,” Wilsey said. “He shot the ball well against Mount Carmel. The name’s up on the board…something we talked about all week. We knew all he could do was mainly shoot threes, but we gave him ample opportunity to do that.” Being hit for 28 points bothered some of the Cats and Wilsey wants it to bother the whole team. Straub and Steinhart were bright spots for Mount Vernon. Steinhart scored 19 points, while Straub stepped up and paced the team with 21. Goebel and Koch each added four points, while Stemple put in three and Troy Paris two. Wilsey also praised each of those players for their efforts, although he felt Friday’s game was one where Koch really couldn’t be utilized. River VanZant and Sam Johnson each put in a point. The Cats outscored Gibson Southern 47-40 over the last three quarters, but Wilsey wasn’t that interested in moral

victories and said that the Cats will work on getting in front early. One thing is for certain. They can’t let anyone go off for 28 points and they have to find some help for Steinhart and Straub. But this time, Nixon was the one and the Wildcats couldn’t solve him, while Spencer Schmitt scored 15 points to give the Titans two players in double figures. Jevin Redman scored 14 points and Drake McNamara added 11 as the Wildcat reserves pulled out a 52-50 win over Gibson Southern in the preliminary. Collin Varner added nine points and Bruce Newman eight, while Craig Dick and Tyler Ritzert each put in five.

‘Cat swimmers mix the line-up but still win Invite By Steve Joos The Mount Vernon boys’ swim team was just deep enough to win all three relay races Saturday and that may have been enough to win their depth invitational. The Wet Wildcats’ sweep of the relays was major factor as they edged Memorial 331-325 to take the Depth Invitational. “We mixed things up a lot,” coach Laura Zoller said. “We had a lot of kids swimming events they don’t normally swim in. We had to, in order to make this a close meet. We were able to that.” The Wet Cats got personal best times from three quarters of their swimmers, Zoller said, adding that the sweep of the relays was a key in the outcome. “We were mixing things up,” Zoller said. “We swept the relays and that was a big reason that we won the meet. If we don’t sweep the relays, that might not be the outcome. The kids knew what they had to do and they did it.” Sage Irons registered personal bests in four different events, while Reid Mobley and Jacob Poole each had strong performances. Clint Weimer also had a good day, posting personal bests in the 50-freesstyle and 500-freestyle. Wade Mobley was a double winner, taking the 200-yard individual medley and the 100-backstroke, but it was the relays that did it. North and Terre Haute North tied for third place with 170 points each, While Jasper (133) came in fifth and Reitz (128) sixth. Harrison (74), Bosse (40), Central (18) and Heritage Hills (14) rounded out the 11-team field. Depth Invitational 200-medley relay: 1) Mount Vernon (Jordan Wooten, Nicholas Loehr, R.

New Harmony School FY 2011 Goals for Expenditure Categories Increases in the student instructional expenditure categories of (1) student academic achievement and (2) student instructional support are not possible due to the unique circumstance that the New Harmony School Corporation has experience a decline in enrollment over the past five years. Because of this, the teaching staff was reduced at the end of the 2006-07 school year and again for the 2010-11 school year. The corporation has switched to the state health insurance plan saving both the corporation and staff money. The corporation continues to lease a room to the Head Start Program, thus bringing in extra revenue. This will overall make the corporation more efficient. The New Harmony School Corporation will continue to seek ways to decrease spending in the expenditure categories of (3) overhead and operational expenditures and (4) nonoperational by always seeking competitive pricing for all supplies purchased for the building, transportation and food services. The corporation will continue to work with other area corporations on purchases and services. The corporation has installed a two- boiler system the summer of 2007. The design of the system and the efficiency of the boilers have resulted in energy savings. The corporation is also looking into a control system to monitor energy use in both the heating and cooling systems. The corporation has applied for Qualified School Construction Bonds to make this improvement financially possible. Energy efficient lighting was installed the spring of 2008. Forthe 2010-11 school year, the corporation will be eliminating a bus route. The corporation has paid off all debts on the building the summer of 2009. Therefore there is no longer a debt service levy for the building which lowers spending in this category Published in the Posey County News February 1, 2011.
