ly and streamlined a process of putting the Marrs Township ambulance into place. Posey EMS director Chuck Thompson told the commissioners that the chase car had already been in service in Marrs Township in the past few days and upon the arrival of a defib unit, the new ambulance unit can be placed in complete service. At their last meeting, the commissioners took the advice of a written statement from AMR Services, the ambulance company that serves Vanderburgh County, and purchased a

gasoline engine instead of the diesel engine that the Posey County Council had favored. There was an initial savings of some $30,000 in going with the gas unit and according to the letter from AMR, the decision will likely result in substantial savings over the life of the ambulance. In other action: Sheriff Greg Oeth took care of some housekeeping duties to help bring the sheriff’s department back into state compliance regarding reserve deputies and a co-pay for

inmates seeking medical services at the jail. County Highway Commissioner Steve Schenk reported that heavy rains had washed out a culvert at Goad Cemetery Road and that work would begin as soon as possible to make the road passable again. The animal control officer’s report included answering 25 complaints with 15 animals picked up and no euthanasias. The commissioners will meet again on Tuesday, July 19 at 9 a.m. at the Hovey House in Mount Vernon.

prices Male body found in silo debris Lunch go up, writing The Evansville Police Department and Indiana State Police police departments are investigating after a body was found in a load of scrap metal. According to EPD spokeswoman Karen Kajmowicz, male human remains were discovered in a truckload of scrap delivered to Henry Fligeltaub Scrap Metal Processing, 1500 Grove St., Evansville. The person’s race and age have not yet been released. The scrap was from some grain silos that were demolished in Mount Vernon. Kajmowicz said about a third of the the truckload

of scrap had been unloaded when the crane operator saw the body. Work immediately stopped and workers covered the remains. Evansville police have sealed the scene, Kajmowicz said. The police departments are looking into whether there are any missing persons in the area matching the person’s description. Kajmowicz stressed this will be a twofold investigation — where the remains came from and how the By Pam Robinson man died. The Mount Vernon School Board voted unanimously Tuesday night to raise school lunch prices for the 2011-12 school year as required by the federal Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The increase will not affect the reduced lunch prices or prevent free lunches, which will remain free. Breakfast and lunch prices for 2011-12 are as follows: student breakfast $1.25, reduced breakfast 30 cents, adult breakfast $1.50; type A lunch meals for elementary $1.85, for junior high $2 for high school $2, reduced lunch 40 cents and adult meals $2.75. The new cost for a paid student breakfast increases by 25 cents and the cost for an adult breakfast increases by 20 cents to help defray supply and labor costs, which the old prices failed to cover. The new lunch prices reflect a 25-cent increase, an increase that Members of the 2011 Posey County Fair court are Most Photogenic LaTosha Toliver, first runner-up is expected to be repeated in 2012Kate Higgins, queen Kaci Turner, retiring queen Samantha Smith, second runner-up Holly Heerdink, 13 and 2013-14 to comply with the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of and Miss Congeniality Jenny Lyke.

Healthcare in America is wonderful, until you need it The insurance companies have gone too far. I can remember a time not so long ago when surgeries were considered serious and you went to TRUTH... the hospital and usually spent STRANGER some time there. You could THAN be watched to make sure ev- FICTION erything was OK before you BY DAVE PEARCE were allowed to go home. But over recent years, time has changed things…and not for the better in many instances. There’s a certain amount of healing involved with major surgery that has nothing to do with the wound or the scar or the procedure. Usually a person needs to heal psychologically. It used to be nice to be able to at least stay overnight at the hospital and at least feel like someone cared what happened to you instead of trying to boot you off the gurney and hearing “next” ringing in your ear before you can get your britches back on. I haven’t had that many surgeries in my life. I had pneumonia when I was in high school and spent a few days in the hospital. Now, you are lucky if you can get an antibiotic for pneumonia. What’s up with that anyhow? So when did someone decide that taking an antibiotic was harmful and destructive to the body? Unless history has changed, I can remember how many lives antibiotics have saved down through the years. I’m grateful for the discoveries made and the lives that

have been saved. Who is it to say that I cannot have a round of antibiotics if I have an infection of some kind, particularly the ones caused by allergies almost annually? The excuse I often hear is that “we are getting to a point to where we have used antibiotics so long they are becoming ineffective in treating infections.” Excuse me, I am 54 years old and not likely to reproduce so if I need a round of antibiotics, please give it to me. I promise not to pass any of the immunity on to anyone else. On Saturday night, I was talking to my niece online. She is going in for a complete hysterectomy on July 19. So I am thinking she will be hospitalized for a few days and can come around slowly and regroup both mentally and physically. But, to my surprise, she gets a whole seven to 24 hours in the hospital. Wow, are the insurance companies sure they can spare the money for her to be there all that time? As I hop on my soapbox, I find it disgusting that healthcare has joined the drivethrough era. I commented ever so sarcastically to her that perhaps someone could just come to the house and cut her insides out and save a whole lot of money. She feared there would be a sterility problem. I told her there would be a sterility problem anyhow, after a hysterectomy! As anger overtook me, I thought sarcasti-

As the hummingbirds attack the feeder outside

GAVEL GAMUT BY JUDGE JIM REDWINE our window I note certain interesting patterns of avian behavior that somehow remind me of other organisms. We have an eight hole feeder and each hole provides direct access to the same pool of nectar. However, as soon as one bird alights on a particular hole, even with seven others available, one or more other birds will descend on the first bird with beaks and wings and drive it away. Now, I get it. If we have, as we sometimes do, more than eight birds at a time come to the feeder, survival of the fittest is the law. But why do these avaricious little terrorists spend more energy trying to prevent others from eating than eating themselves? Whatever happened to

My husband Jim and I celebrate our 22nd wedding FOR THE anniversary this Thursday. RECORD Seven years ago, we renewed our vows—something Jim BY PAM had said he would never do. ROBINSON He reasoned he married me once and for always, and he said he saw no need to repeat the ceremony. When he realized how much the event meant to me, however, he relented and even wore a suit for the occasion.

Around that time, for some totally unwarranted (and unwise) reason, I decided to pen a few poems. Fortunately, USI English Professor Betty Hart saved me from public embarrassment with her characteristic blunt honesty, a quality I’ve come to appreciate about her during our long friendship. After all, real friends don’t tell lies. She utterly destroyed any of my delusions about calling myself a poet. She told me in no uncertain terms to stick to prose. Only one poem ever made her take (respectful) notice. I titled it simply “For Jim.” I meant to read it during our renewal of vows, but developed a case of stage fright and dismissed the idea. Afterwards, I even deleted the poem from my computer files and kept no hard copy. I figured its shelf life had expired. Once again, Betty proved a friend indeed. Just last week, she emailed me a copy of the forgotten poem, in time for my anniversary celebration with Jim, and underscored it as my only decent verses worth sharing. So today, in honor of my husband, my most loyal and devoted friend ever, I share the poem publicly—for Jim—and release the public from any resulting negative judgments at my expense. For years now, a safe harbor I’ve found in your strong arms, In all weather welcome, but most Sheltered during raging storm. Life’s seas often pulled me under, But over and over your sure hand Lifted me to firm ground until the Dark waves subsided, tossed no more. Solid, your love was never spent Though bitter was the pain of Too much remembering of sea surge And salt tears, burden of the journey. But now I see bright Sun on the horizon, The promise of golden memories for gentle Drifting into golden years, calm waters, For My Only Love, My Heart of Gold. Jim, this renewal of vows is for you, and you don’t even need to dress up for it. We may prefer sipping morning coffee on our front porch now to spooning at the Old Dam, but we never face a dull moment. Happy Anniversary, Honey! Here’s to 22 more.

Letter to the Editor “From each according to his abilities, to each according to his needs”? At JPeg Ranch we have other more natural hummingbird feeders. We have Rose of Sharon bushes and Bachelor Buttons and Indian Paint Brush flowers filled with wholesome fare. I note that the birds are much less likely to resent sharing nature’s bounty. Also, they do not appear to be nearly as aggressive and selfish when flitting from bush to flower to Trumpeter Vine. Another curiosity I have observed is the manner in which the society of ravenous hummingbirds treat certain individual members. Much as some groups of teenagers, certain birds are always on the outside looking in, some combine against birds of a different feather, the lone green hued one for example, and some demand homage to allow others to join. We sometimes think of nature as a perfect society. It appears that hummingbirds high on sugar water may be more of a perfect mirror.

ger than I absolutely have to. I can remember having my gall bladder removed on a Monday morning a few years ago and going back to the newspaper office to finish that week’s edition before the pain medication wore off. I might have missed one full day of work but I probably worked from home. Then on Sept. 8, 2004, when my heart decided to “short out” and stop beating, I was at Deaconess Hospital for another procedure when it happened. Fortunately for me, they were able to shock me back to life with four shocks. I was in a coma for some days but I remember coming out of the coma and wanting to go home. I realized I wasn’t able because I was attached to a ventilator. But when all was said and done, I had had no heartbeat and no blood pressure on Sept. 8 and returned to work on Sept. 21 with a defibrillator/pacemaker firmly implanted in my chest. And, yes, I still play tennis tournaments. I am able to do just about everything I did before I “died.” I’m certainly not one to take advantage of the insurance companies. But for crying out loud, I asked last week if common sense had taken a long-term hiatus. I am convinced now more than ever that it has. If people need an antibiotic, please see that they get it. They have and will continue to pay for it. And if people need hospital care, let’s find a way to make sure they get it. Having something as traumatic as a complete hysterectomy and trying to make it home in time to see the nightly news simply doesn’t make any sense.

Anniversary reminder of spouse’s role, place in life

Gavel Gamut’s “An Allergory” Peg has discovered a fail-safe method of attracting hummingbirds. She fills their feeder with highly concentrated sugar water. Very quickly the small frenetic birds overdose on the high energy nectar. Occasionally Peg does not refill the feeder as rapidly as the feathered society deems appropriate and one or more of them will face the back porch window and stare until the drug is resupplied. These rare periods of drought are my favorite as the hummingbirds turn their attention to Buffalo Gnats and other insects when their drug of choice is unavailable. In other words, they become useful and productive while making themselves and their offspring healthier. Of course, when I gently approach this issue with Peg she explains that without the sugar water “our” hummingbirds will find other suppliers and their insect population will be the ones decimated. I do not know if she is correct, but I do know it is wiser to assume so.

cally that perhaps she could just go through the drive-through medical window and order a hamburger, large drink, and a complete hysterectomy. “Would you like fries with that?” would probably be the answer. I know that medicine has come a long way down through the years but I am afraid that healthcare in America is headed in the wrong direction. I can remember two or three surgeries in my life and I am probably a doctor’s worst nightmare. I am hard to put under anesthesia. I remember my first surgery, a tonsillectomy, and the anesthesiologist sitting at my head. After starting at 100 and counting backwards, apparently I counted too far. Everything stopped and the man in the blue mask at my head began frantically turning pages in a book that was on his lap. I commented to him that I hoped he hadn’t waited until now to read up on how to do this. He didn’t see the humor and it wasn’t long until I was out. I had my tonsils removed at the ripe old age of 26. Guess I really wasn’t too smart because I had them taken out on Monday and played doubles in a tennis tournament on Thursday. I didn’t realize until later the high risk of bleeding associated with a tonsillectomy. Thanks to Tony Aylsworth, my doubles partner at the time, I didn’t have to run down a lot of balls during the first couple of rounds. We ended up winning the tournament on Saturday. I don’t want to be down and out any lon-


To the Editor: Several recent events have converged into a singular idea which I believe could benefit the City of Mt Vernon and its citizens. First, I noticed that the barn swallows which have graced and adorned my Posey County porch for several years did not arrive this year. I have no idea why. Were they blown off course by the awful spring storms across the South? Did they decide to stay in Capistrano this year? Secondly, my neighborhood was beset by a plague of voracious black flies that aimed for the ears and neck and left flaming welts. Did the swallows usually control them? Do swallows eat them? Have people sprayed the bugs and poisoned my swallows? Do the loathsome gnats even have any natural enemies? Then, one evening about the 25th of June, I took my dog to the park on the riverfront in Mt Vernon, to watch the river and enjoy the breeze and the flowers. As I sat on a bench, I noticed a familiar motion: graceful birds swooping over the ASSISTANT EDITOR, MV OFFICE PAM ROBINSON

water, gliding and darting to catch the insects that hover in the air. Swallows, martins, swifts, I'm not sure of the species or if they were all the same. Later, on my way home, I wondered if they lived in the silo. The fourth event came a few days later: I saw an article in a newspaper about Eagle Scouts and the projects they develop in order to earn the highest honor in Scouting. One young man had rebuilt a floating dock at Wesselman Woods, to the delight of everyone who visits there. They raise the funds and design and execute the whole thing, after obtaining the necessary permits and approvals. The fifth happening, which brought all these unrelated things together in my mind, was the arrival of the July - August 2011 edition of Audubon Magazine. There, on pages 44 to 49, is an article about swift towers. There is a couple in Pennsylvania who have written a book about these freestanding chimneys which attract chimney swifts, the remarkable birds that like to nest inside vertical hollow WRITER / REPORTER VALERIE WERKMEISTER





spaces – like chimneys and silos. The swifts fly about during the day, catching flying insects. In the old days, when people had chimneys and heated their homes with stoves and fireplaces, the swifts nested in their chimneys in the summer. Now, however, most people have covered or removed the chimneys and blocked the birds' access. Swift populations have dwindled and a wonderful natural pest control is being lost. Well, there you have it. The towers are tiny, compared to the silo. They are the size of a chimney, but they stand on the ground, on four legs, and they needn't block anyone's view of the river. They can be wood or brick or just about any building material. They could be removed in the fall, after migration. The birds they attract and shelter would pay for their accomodations by keeping the downtown bugfree, and they wouldn't bother people the way pigeons and spatsies can. In fact, they might even become an attraction themselves! Think about it, Alice Hertli N.H. OFFICE MANAGER MICHELLE GIBSON

This is the second year for the contract. The parent program services provided during the 2010-11 school year exceeded expectations. Kopatich provided the following announcements: He emphasized that he did not know the numbers for enrollment and class sizes. He added that principals return to work on July 27 and that he anticipates a look at enrollment figures on August 1. The Farmersville and West playgrounds are being prepared as planned.

Although Oakland City University has dropped its pursuit of space at the Hedges Central Elementary building, Ivy Tech is still interested. Kopatich hopes to bring the board more concrete information in a couple of weeks at the next regular board meeting. The board recognized the following high school students for their recent state FFA awards: Mathew Seifert, third place in freshman extemporaneous speaking; Alex DeKemper, Hoosier FFA degree; Sean Ritzert, Hoosier FFA degree; Mount Vernon FFA Chapter, second in state FFA Foundation Drive and named as a Bronze Emblem Chapter (top 21 to 30 for overall 2010 activities). The Mount Vernon School Board will meet again on Monday, July 18, 2011, at 5:45 p.m. in the junior high media center.

Hooe turns 100, from Page 1A administrator at The Ford Home said. “She decorates that porch every spring and spends a lot of time out there.” Koch also described Hooe as a sweet, but tough, lady who is fiercely independent. She said Hooe is a leader among her peers, and she recently helped develop a welcoming committee for new residents of The Ford Home. “They thought about what it was like when they were new ladies here, and

that was kind of intimidating,” Koch said. “She (Hooe) headed it, and she sort of came up with a list of things she wished she would have known.” Overall, Koch said it is an honor to help Hooe. “Alberta is an exceptional lady because she has also done this job,” Koch said. “Having been a director of nursing, she is now on the opposite end of that, receiving care. She has this tre-

mendous wealth of knowledge.” As for Hooe, she planned to enjoy her 100th birthday celebration. She said she is thankful for every day and for the people in her life. “This was my mail today,” she said, pointing to the basket attached to the front of her walker. A variety of birthday cards filled the space, each one addressed to her. “I suppose I am looking forward to my birthday.”

Pease pens song, from Page 1A “The song sounds like it’s about an old girlfriend, but it’s really about a Fender Telecaster. It’s a story song: Boy meets guitar, boy plays guitar, boy hocks guitar,” Pease says. The ballad mirrors Pease’s real-life handling of guitars. As he explains, Pease bought his first guitar in Bloomington, Ind., when he was 19 years old to win the attention of girls. Now 57, he’s been through lots of guitars, but he’s never stopped playing songs or writing them. He first went public with his playing in Stillwater, Okla., while he was going to graduate school at Oklahoma State University. A local legend, he has played countless bars, coffee houses, benefit concerts, festivals, auditoriums, street fairs, weddings, feed stores, county fairs, living rooms, front porches, patios and yard sales since that time. He has been recognized as one of the seminal figures in the Red Dirt music movement, which has burgeoned in the Southwest and is rippling outward to the rest of the continent. Gifted with an ear for music, he plays fast

and loose with several musical genres, including folk, country, rhythm & blues, rockabilly, bluegrass, blues, pop, gospel, even a little jazz. But his specialty is the story song – a song with strong characters and a plot. “I’ve always been a sucker for a good story,” Pease says. “I like to hear them, read them, tell them. It’s an art to squeeze a complex, multi-layered story into a four-minute song.” He has three critically acclaimed CDs under his belt: Call Me Ishmael (1997), Sometimes the Moon (2002), and Prodigal Sunshine (2010). All three CDs were engineered by fellow musician Jeff Parker. Today, the University of Southern Indiana English instructor reserves his deepest love for his 10-year-old daughter Lily, herself a blossoming guitarist, singer, writer and artist. She designed the colorful back cover on his most recent CD, Prodigal Sunshine. When only 4 years old, she unwittingly provided the title as well. “Lily was maybe four, and her favorite thing to watch on TV was the Weath-

er Channel. The first thing she wanted to be when she grew up was the meteorologist on the Weather Channel ,” Pease explains. “I’d in my office, and she’d come in every 15 or 20 minutes and give me a weather update from somewhere in the world. One day, the meteorologist said, ‘We can expect periodical sunshine.’ She came in and told me, ‘Dad, tomorrow, we’re going to have prodigal sunshine.’ I just filed that away as a good title for something.” The music director for the Artists’ Guild in New Harmony, Pease has been bringing in concerts for the guild for the past two years. The Hank Williams’ tribute last August remains one of the favorites in the series. Pease’s own upcoming performances include his 7:30 p.m. show on Friday, July 15, during the Posey Jam3 Music Fest at the Posey County 4-H Fair and weekly Sunday concerts on the patio at Windsor Oaks in Grayville, Ill. The West Side Nut Club will bring him out this year on Thursday at 11 a.m. at their fall festival the first week in October.

In addition, he will be featured in a documentary on Oklahoma musicians directed by singer and songwriter Lata Gouveia from Luxembourg, a western European country bordered by Belgium, France and Germany. Filming starts July 28. For now, Pease is still celebrating his #1 spot on Texas Music Charts. “Worst case scenario, at the very least, I was number one for a week in July,” he says.

River Days group seeks flood photos Each year the Mount Vernon River Days Festival has as its purpose to bring attention to the special privilege residents, neighbors and friends share in enjoying and being witness to the wonders of living on the banks of the Ohio River. Of course, there are all kinds of “wonders” that this opportunity affords; and this year, with the river’s third highest crest, 51.8 feet, folks were reminded of the awesome power of the Ohio. With memories of the 2011 Flood fresh on minds of area residents, the 75th anniversary of the “Big Flood” in 1937, when the crest reached 59.2 feet, will be commemorated at this year’s Mount Vernon River Days event set for September 9, 10 and 11. In 1937, the river inundated a lot of mid-America, including Mount Vernon. The water lapped at the steps of the Eagles’ building on Water Street and surrounded the water treatment plant. Up and down the Ohio, from Johnstown to New Orleans, the “Beautiful Ohio” showed its power and might. Becky Higgins, Vice Chair of the River Days Committee, is collecting 1937 Flood

photographs and other memorabilia to be featured in an exhibit that will take place at the 2011 festival. Anyone who has pictures or collectible items from the 1937 flood that they are willing to share in his exhibit is asked to contact Higgins

Printcrafters, 304 W. Fourth Street in Mount Vernon. Larry Williams is Chairman of this year’s River Days, with Kay Kilgore as Chairman of Events and Entertainment and Nancy Hoehn in charge of Food Booths.

WMI News Butcher, Baker, Candlestick Maker The home remedies in last week’s article reminded us the homemaker of the past often found herself in the role of doctor. But that was only one of the hats she wore. In a time when most households were nearly selfsufficient, the homemaker could find herself fulfilling many roles in one day. Women were responsible for maintaining the home, cooking, rearing children, clothing the family and

gardening. Gardening here does not mean maintaining a bed of petunias. Wives planted substantial vegetable gardens, feeding their family fresh produce in season and canning and preserving food for the rest of the year. These women lived the adage: “A man may work from sun to sun, but a woman’s work is never done.” “Voices of American Homemakers” and “Feeding Our Families: Memories of Hoo-

sier Homemakers” are oral histories that give voice to the toils and pleasures of these intrepid women who took pride in a dusted and swept parlor, a shelf of canned vegetables and a row of freshly scrubbed children in outfits they had sewn in the quiet evening hours as their children slumbered. Of particular interest is the latter book. It contains oral histories of Indiana women only, and there are a number of entries from Posey County residents. Following are just a few of their remembrances. At 83, Vernell Saltzman remembers going to Farmersville School to learn to cold pack. She drove the horse and buggy to a friend’s house. She then drove her friend Carlene’s car to the school. Vernell could drive

forward, but not reverse. After a hard day of canning, she and Carlene were ready to leave. Vernell remembers: “Carlene couldn’t drive the car down straight, but she could back it up, so she backs it up, and we loaded Lena in with her precious cold packer, and I drove the care home and got my horse and buggy and come on home.” Audrey Blackburn, 86 at the time of the interview, remembers when shopping was just for the basics. “My mother would come in Mt. Vernon with butter and eggs from the farm and what did she come home with? She came home with baking powder and soda and vanilla and a pound of coffee. That was it.” She goes on to explain how the family got the rest of the basic supplies: “When

my father sold wheat, he would get flour in barrels. When he bought that barrel of flour, he bought a barrel of sugar. He had a barrel of salt in the smokehouse and you would go out there and get some salt. So really, you had it all right there. Then we had fruit and vegetables my mother put up. There was no reason to buy anything.” In today’s super markets everything is in season all year long. It is hard to imagine when our favorite foods were seasonal. At 90, Lennie Hern of Decatur County remembers Sunday dinners with seasonal treats: “During the fried chicken season, we would come home from church and my mother’d go and pick up a chicken and wring its head off and get it ready to fry for dinner.

sister and I’d go over to the strawberry patch and pick strawberries and stem them, and get them ready for dessert. Of course Mother had baked a lot of bread on Saturday, so we had plenty of bread, and sometimes we had plenty of pies. But in strawberry season, we expected to eat strawberry desserts.” From Sunday dinners to tending gardens and canning, the homemakers of the past worked hard to provide healthy, happy homes for their families. The books mentioned in this article containing the homemakers’ oral histories are available at the WMI.

North Posey student attends Hoosier Girls State North Posey junior, Mary Beth Gibbs, attended the 2011 Hoosier Girls State sponsored by the Indiana American Legion Auxiliary. The event was held June 1925 on the campus of Indiana State University in Terre Haute. The Ladies Auxiliary of Oliver Marquis Post 278 of Poseyville sponsored Mary Beth Gibbs to attend Hoosier Girls State. Mary Beth is the daughter of Terry and Jane Gibbs of Poseyville. She is a three-year member of the cheerleading team and a two-year member of the track team. She is also a

member of the St. Francis Church youth choir and is involved in the Peers Project. She is a member of the National Honor Society and volunteers with Big Brothers

Big Sister. After graduation, Mary Beth plans to attend a four-year college. Delegates to Hoosier Girls State must have an interest in government, have leadership abilities, meet scholarship criteria and be of good character. The young woman must be willing to show proper respect to the American Flag and display a love for God and country. The Girls State tradition began in the late 1930s. Each summer 25,000 enthusiastic young ladies across the nation participate in Girls State sessions. The objective of the Girls State

program is to develop leadership and pride in American citizens, educate delegates about our system of government, instill a greater understanding of American traditions among our youth, and stimulate the desire to maintain and participate in our democratic government. At the close of Girls State sessions, two delegates are selected to represent their state as “Senators” at Girl Nation.

Woodley-Eichenberger receives seventh Mary Kay ‘pink’ car By Pam Robinson Local Mary Kay Sales Director Desireé WoodleyEichenberger has earned the use of a new silver Chevrolet Equinox crossover, her seventh Mary Kay career car. The St. Philip native picked up the keys to her new vehicle on Fri-

day, July 1, at Expressway Chevrolet in Mount Vernon as her family stood by to congratulate her. Indeed, Mary Kay is a family affair for Eichenberger. She recalls that a Mary Kay Independent Beauty Consultant encouraged her to start her own

Mary Kay business after her first skin care class for family netted $500. Soon afterward, Eichenberger launched her career with the company in 1985, the same year she graduated from Mount Vernon High School. Her daughter Ashley,

now 25, was born a year later, and Eichenberger chose to end a successful post-secondary education to continue working as a Mary Kay Independent Beauty Consultant. She says that she has never regretted her decision. Her flexible schedule has meant

her daughter stayed in daycare for only two months. By 1989, Eichenberger attended her first Mary Kay annual seminar in Dallas. She vowed to earn a spot in the “Queen’s Court of Sales,” and the next year she achieved that goal and received the first of eight diamond rings from Mary Kay. “I got to meet Mary Kay herself and tour her home,” Eichenberger comments. “That was very special. Mary Kay herself passed away in 2001.” In 1995, Eichenberger drove her first Mary Kay career car. With the dawn of the millennium in 2000, she climbed to the position of sales director, reserved for those in the top two percent of the company. Her flexible schedule and company benefits became even more important to her a couple of years later when she faced difficult life challenges in 2004. Along with her own local family, her Mary Kay family sustained her. “I really realized then that the freedom and flexibility is priceless. With Mary Kay, I was able to cut back on working, yet still get paid,” she states. “Our

company is founded on the Golden Rule, and Mary Kay taught us to ‘put God first, family second and career third.’” Today, Eichenberger and her husband John, also a Posey County native, live in the St. Philip area near Kramer’s Lake, started by her grandparents Lucille and the late Earl Kramer. She and John are grateful for the blessing of family, especially two-year-old granddaughter, Lillian. Mary Kay is one of the world’s largest direct selling companies with more than $2.5 billion in annual wholesale sales worldwide. Mary Kay was founded in 1963 by Mary Kay Ash with the goal of helping women achieve personal growth and financial success. Mary Kay remains committed to enriching women’s lives, and today more than 2 million people of all backgrounds are enjoying the advantages of being Mary Kay Independent Beauty Consultants. Mary Kay’s high-quality skin care and color cosmetic products are sold in more than 35 countries around the world. To learn more about Mary Kay, visit

Local gardener has developed yard in just four years By Holly Heerdink Twila Osborne began her flower garden at her New Harmony home about four years ago, and although she says she started small, her backyard is now a sprawling beauty full of lush greens and vibrant flowers. Add in the sound of trickling water from the pond and the visiting butterflies and hummingbirds, and the ambiance is hard to beat. “It’s just been a fun hobby,” Osborne said about planting and maintaining her garden. “The last few years we have spent a lot of time in it. But this year, it’s been more relaxed and it’s matured.” Osborne typically expands her garden by one or two plants every year. One of her newest additions, a grape arbor, was placed in her yard last year. She has also picked up ideas from Granary Street in New Harmony. When visiting Brown County, she saw teapot decorations and decided to try them. She was pleased with the outcome, and she said the teapots add a whimsical effect to her garden. However, Osborne hasn’t been on her own during her gardening process. She receives help from her husband Harold and many people throughout the town. “A lot of people just come by and give us rosebushes,” Osborne smiled. One of these people, author and past New Harmony resident Sally Ross, gave Osborne a rosebush as a wedding gift. Although Osborne enjoys the tranquil environment of her garden, she doesn’t enjoy

everything about its maintenance. “I don’t like weeding at all,” she laughed. Osborne, an Illinois native, moved to Evansville after the company she worked for was sold, and nine years ago, she made her way to Posey County. Throughout her location changes, Osborne has stayed with her career. She has served as a paramedic for the past 22 years. “I’m very lucky to live and work in the same town,” Osborne said. “As a paramedic, you have your ups and your downs. You have your downtime. I think that’s the most Above, Twila Osborne stands near her grape harbor while below, the coi enjoy the stressful when you’re just waiting for what’s pond made for them in the Osborne yard.

She said they get away as often as they can, and they bring their dogs Lizzie and Maggie with them. While they are gone, Osborne admits she worries about her garden and if it is being watered properly. But it is reassuring to know her husband’s family is close by, and her cat, Bob, is guarding the house. Overall, Osborne couldn’t be happier in New Harmony and the close-knit community it provides. “It’s beautiful here. I love taking walks. I love being close to my neighbors. I love people coming by and looking at the flowers, and I like looking at everybody else’s flowers.”

Owen Dunn Legion Post No. 5 wraps up 16-4 season By Steve Joos The Mount Vernon Junior American Legion baseball team concluded a 16-4 campaign Wednesday night with a 13-7 victory over Evansville Funkhouser Junior at the Barker Avenue complex. “We should have a good group for the high school next year and beyond that,” coach Dan McNamara said. “They should do well the next couple of years. They have a lot of work to do in order to get better and they know it.” On Wednesday, the Junior Legion jumped out to an 11-1 lead and was an out away from run-ruling Junior Funkhouser in five innings, but couldn’t finish it. Bryce Newman pitched well, but gave up a pair of two-out runs in the fifth. River Van Zant and Drake McNamara finished up, but VanZant was touched for two runs in the sixth before McNamara took over. Manama and Jevin Redman each homered as Mount Vernon built its lead, while Clay Ford completed the scoring for Post Five with a two-run shot in the top of the sixth inning. McNamara had three hits, while Newman, VanZant and Ford each had two. On Tuesday night, Mount Vernon rallied for six runs in the bottom of the sixth en route to an 116- win over visiting Pate Junior. Mount Vernon fell behind 5-1 after three innings, leaving the bases loaded in the each of the first two innings. McNamara said that Pate threw well in each of the first two frames, but it was just a matter of Mount Vernon wearing him

down, which they did with two runs in the fifth and a big rampage in the sixth. Aaron Roberts started the rally with a double, while a pair of wild pitchers and a single by Trevor Veeck capped the comeback, scoring two runs. The Junior Legion spotted Pate a 5-1 lead Tuesday night and then broke things open down the stretch for an 11-6 victory. Six runs in the bottom of the sixth put Mount Vernon on top for good. “We spotted them five,” McNamara said. “The first three innings, Ross Canada was pitching well, but we gave them an extra out every inning and they got a cupola, got a couple (of runs). Their pitcher was doing well the first three innings. We had the bases loaded the first two innings and couldn’t score. He got out of a couple of nice jams.” Mount Vernon got a run out of those two bases-loaded situations in the first two innings and they chipped away with a pair of runs in the fifth before knocking the walls down in the sixth. Roberts opened the sixth by lining a double off the left field fence and then came around on a single by Newman and a wild pitch. A single by McNamara tied the game, then two walks, an error on Redman’s fly ball to center and a two-out single by Veeck broke things open. The coach thought it was just a matter of wearing down the opposition starter. “It was hot early,” McNamara said. “We had the bases loaded twice and we couldn’t scratch anything across. He threw

and pitched four innings of one-run baseball to pick yup the win. VanZant, Newman, McNamara and Roberts each had two hits.

Silver Bell reclaims softball tourney crown in dramatic fashion By Steve Joos Chad Thornburg has been coming to the St. Wendel tavern softball tournament for 21 years and in 2011, he’s going home a winner. Led by Thornburg and tourney most valuable player Nick Utley, the Silver Bell Tavern team battled back through the losers’ bracket of the two-day tournament to defeat Scores and the Rock Yard twice Sunday 23-8 and 30-12 to claim the tourney at the Athletic Club fields. “It feels great,” Thornburg said. “As hot as it’s been, to come back through the loser’s bracket, is quite an achievement. Nick Utley played a great tournament and was the MVP. We added five players and they all came through for us.” Five players from teams which had earlier completed play in other tournaments came on board to help The Silver Bell on Sunday, when the St. Wendel tavern team bounced back from a close loss to Koodie Hoo’s late Saturday to fashion a title run. The Silver bell started its comeback with a 29-11 win

Members of the winning Silver Bell Tavern squad are Tucker Ramage, Nick Utley, Kevin Brown, Mac McCall, Kent Dillingham, Sam Schurtz, Coach Chad Thornburg, David Curl, Randall Ramage, Chris Holmes, Matt Scherzinger, Jim “Fathead” Elkins, Brock Hardin, Kelly Schmitt, Ryan Barrett, and Adam “Ace” Paridaen.

Posey 10s lost to areas best By Steve Joos It took the best to beat the North Posey 10-yearold Little League All-Star baseball team. The eventual champions from Highland eliminated the North Posey stars, beating them 14-4 in five innings under the 10-run rule in Friday’s elimination round after slugging them 16-5 in pool play Thursday. The 10-year-olds were 11-1 winners over Princeton Tuesday night. “Most of the game, it went fine,” coach Donnie Reidford said after Friday’s game. “We started Shane Harris and we did fine until he ran out of innings.” The team’s best pitcher, Reidford used Harris sparingly over the course of the week, throwing just about everybody at Princeton and Highland in the first battle between the two teams.

On Friday, he pitched well and kept North Posey in the contest. The 10-yearolds were down 5-4 when Harris reached his limit in the fifth inning—and then Highland cut loose on the rest of the team. A pair of walks off Jesse Kissel and a pair of hits enabled Highland to go on a rampage in the fifth, scoring nine runs to put the game away. On Thursday, Highland jumped out to a 7-4 lead in after the first inning and never looked back. “We just lost to a great team,” Reidford said. “Our kids did a nice job of keeping things close in the first few innings. We were just up against a better team.” And they were hanging around, until they ran out of pitching. Reidford thanked to parents and the fans for their support during the regular season.

The Western Hills Country Club took a few minutes before their morning practice to gather for a team picture this week. Present for this morning’s practice were Taylor Collins, Maggie Jones, Clara Hawley, Ty Sims, Logan Culley, Zach Culley, Jack Valier, Ashlyn Bourne, Taylor Culley, Halle Bailey, Brooke Jackson, Olivia Culley, Nicholas Carter, Molly Jones, and Coach Elizabeth Frye. The team participates in weekly swim meets at area country clubs and are coached by Lynn Sims and Genny Cox as well as Frye. Photo by Terri Koch

Pam Carl, helping Posey County to fill ‘Clothes Hangers’ Posey County native Pam Carl wanted her relationship with God to consist of more than church on Sunday mornings at Old Union Christian Church in Poseyville. So she started a clothing bank in the basement of the church four years ago with the blessing of her pastor, Rev. Don French, the help of her husband Dane, and tremendous support from the Old Union congregation. She initially opened with four racks of clothes. Three times a year now, in spring, summer and winter, The Clothes Hanger aids about 300 children, infants through high school teenagers, in 100 families. “She has never asked for any recognition for what she is doing,” states her niece, Posey County native Kim Balder, who lives in Chicago now and nominated her aunt for Good Neighbor of the Week. Indeed, when talking with Carl, her primary concern is spreading the word about the upcoming opening of The Clothes Hanger on Saturday, August 6, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.—just in time to get youth ready to go back to school. The clothing bank will also be opened by appointment should a need

arise after the August 6 blitz. Parents may take home five outfits for their children free with no questions asked other than name and address to mail notice of the next time the clothing bank is open. Shoes and coats along with a few baby items such as high chairs, blankets and toys are available as well. Carl says hundreds of donations have poured in from members of Old Union Christian Church, a small congregation of about 80 regulars now led by Pastor Baret Fawbush, and from friends throughout Posey County. Church members and community residents volunteer also to help each time the clothing bank is open to insure it runs smoothly. Carl’s mom Freida Orth and her daughter Misty Mauck are among the busiest of those volunteers. An avid bargain shopper, Carl “is constantly looking for great deals on clothing at local stores, garage sales and resale shops, and often buys out of her own pocket,” adds her niece, Kim Balder. The highest standards are maintained on donations of mostly gently used clothing. “If it isn’t good enough for your own child or grandchild, it doesn’t go in [the

clothing bank], explains Carl. “It’s a blessing for the people who get, and it’s a blessing for the people who give.” In addition to managing the clothing bank, Carl works in Old Union’s Wednesday Afternoon Bible Club that supports as many as 30 children, grades K through 6, with a hot meal, a lesson and transportation. Her church service includes assisting with Vacation Bible School, the nursery and Sunday School as well. A registered nurse, she served 22 years at Welborn Hospital before it was purchased by St. Mary’s. She now works as an IV therapist at Deaconess. She enjoys collecting pitchers, teapots and teacups and helping her daughter lead Girl Scout Troop #127. All these commitments notwithstanding, Carl’s first love is, beyond a doubt, her family. She and Dane, another Posey County native, have been married 32 years. Both are North Posey graduates. Their daughter and son married North Posey High School classmates. Daughter Misty (35) and

her husband Doug Mauck are proud parents of Pam and Dane’s two granddaughters— Melissa (10) and Maya (3). Son Damon (30) and his wife Elissa (Travers) will welcome the Carls’ first grandson, Noah Jameson Carl, any day now. Two cats, Callie and Nicky, share their home with the family.
