All metal was being removed from the top of the silos in preparation for Elite Environmental to complete asbestos removal. Klenck Company will then return the 7,000-pound wrecking ball to bring down the silos themselves.

Facebook account leads to arrest of Posey man

Plea agreement in child molestation case called for no Internet usage

By Pam Robinson Posey County Prosecutor Travis Clowers and Probation Officer Michelle Fortune filed the petition for revocation of probation along with an affidavit of probable cause to arrest on Wednesday, June 15, 2011, for Charles F. Poston, previously found guilty of child molesting. On Thursday, June 16, 2011, Judge James Redwine responded by issuing a warrant for the arrest of Poston for violating the terms of his suspended sentence by establishing a personal Facebook account. In a phone interview, Clowers explained that a concerned citizen tipped the prosecutor’s office to Poston’s Facebook account. In turn, Clowers and Fortune verified Poston’s use of Facebook on June 15, filed the appropriate legal documents on the same day and contacted local law enforcement. Clowers commented, “We cannot release any information on where he was using the computer; however, we are still investigating.” Regarding Poston’s Facebook use, the petition for revocation of probation notes, “It appears this account was created by Mr. Poston on or before June 11, 2011.” According to Clowers, the plea agreement in Poston’s child molesting case was reached by former Posey County Prosecutor Jodi Uebelhack and former Deputy Prosecutor Jake Warrum and was filed in Circuit Court on April 7, 2008. The plea agreement called for five

years in prison followed by one year of probation. The petition for revocation of probation spells out the terms of Poston’s one-year probation as established in Circuit Court on November 1, 2010: “You shall not access the Internet or any other on-line service through use of a computer, cell phone, iPod, Xbox, Blackberry, personal digital assistant (PDA), pagers, Palm Pilots, televisions, or any other electronic device at any location (including your place of employment) without prior approval of your probation officer. This includes any Internet service provider, bulletin board system, email system or any other public or private computer network. You shall not possess or use any data encryption technique or program.” As of Monday morning, Poston was being held in Posey County Jail. Jail officials confirmed he was being held on a $10,000 security or a $1,000 cash bond. On Monday afternoon, Poston was scheduled to appear in Posey Circuit Court for an initial hearing in which he was given the option to admit or deny the petition for revocation of probation. In addition, he was informed of his right to legal counsel and was informed of his right to a hearing to contest this matter. Clowers will argue the case for Poston to serve his remaining term of probation in state prison. The Circuit Court judge will decide the outcome. The Posey County News will provide additional information as it becomes available.

By Dave Pearce Nearly all of the news was good news for Posey County residents at the Tuesday morning meeting of the Posey County Council…with emphasis on the “nearly.” In the two largest items, the Council heard from representatives of Bristol Myers that the company is planning a major expansion at the Mount Vernon site that will add some 30 jobs. The jobs will include 28 hourly jobs that will pay around $28 an hour as well as two salaried jobs. Bristol Myers representative William Hayes told member of the Council that by an investment of over $76 million, the company has committed to make the Posey County site a “significant part of it’s continuing plan.” The company is requesting personal property tax abatement on the project which is expected to begin in early July and be completed sometime in 2014. Councilmen showed excitement about the plan and agreed to continue to watch progress at the site while the abatement is being considered. But while one of the county’s largest employers was seeking an abatement, another was working with the county to try and get repayment of taxes that were overpaid for three years at SABIC and General Electric. County attorney Beth McFadinHiggins reported that she had been in negotiations with both SABIC and the former owner of the Mount Vernon facility, General Electric, for overpayment of taxes. The companies recently won an appeal of the taxation with General Electric being owed just over half a million and SABIC standing to be refunded just over a$1 million. McFadin-Higgins said both companies had shown a willingness to work with the county on refunding the overpayment. General Electric agreed to a three-year repayment plan for their $515,000 while SABIC has agreed to accept credit on future taxes instead of forcing the county to repay the amount owed them. The overpayment was in the calendar years of 2006-2008, was made at the Black Township Assessor’s Office, is expected to be felt by several Black Township-funded entities such as schools and libraries in the coming months. News of the overpayment and subsequent refunds due overshadowed the nod given by the Posey County Council to fund a fourth ambulance in Posey County. The Council gave it’s OK to go ahead with plans to purchase and supply/staff another ambulance. Commissioner Jim Alsop and Posey EMS Director Chuck Thompson had presented the proposal to the council to purchase a gas-powered ambulance with a total price tag of $286,000. Members of the council instructed Thompson to pursue purchase of a diesel-powered ambulance at a cost of $319,000. Thompson told members of the council that Evansville-based AMR has been leaning toward gasoline engines because of upkeep costs of the diesel-powered trucks but members of the council voted unanimously to go with the diesel engine, despite the additional cost. Thompson indicated that he would need to hire five additional employees and the council instructed him to do what he needed to do and to try and get the ambulance into service by July 1. Thompson

Posey County Council, from Page 1A told the council that a more realistic inservice date would probably be August 1. Council president Bob Gentil pointed out that the county will be spending more than twice the state average, per capita, on ambulance service at $55 per year per person while the state average is $21.65 per person,

per year. The county will be looking at a new billing process to save money and hopefully improve collection percentages in the future. The County Council will meet again on the second Tuesday in July at 9 a.m. at the Hovey House in Mount Vernon.

Hearty Stuffed Peppers

• • • • • • • • • • • • •

INGREDIENTS 4 bell peppers, any color Salt 5 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil 1 medium yellow onion, peeled and chopped 1 clove of garlic, peeled and chopped 1 lb of lean ground beef 1 1/2 cup of cooked rice 1 cup chopped tomatoes, fresh or canned (if using can, drain of excess liquid first) 1 tbsp chopped fresh oregano or 1 teaspoon of dried oregano Fresh ground pepper 1/2 cup ketchup 1/2 tsp of Worcestershire Sauce Dash of Tabasco sauce

METHOD 1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil over high heat. Meanwhile, cut top off peppers 1 inch from the stem end, and remove seeds. Add several generous pinches of salt to boiling water, then add peppers and boil, using a spoon to keep peppers completely submerged, until brilliant green (or red if red peppers) and their flesh slightly softened, about 3 minutes. Drain, set aside to cool. 2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Heat 4 tbsp of the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onions and cook, stirring often, until soft and translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook a minute more. Remove skillet from heat, add meat, rice, tomatoes, and oregano, and season generously with salt and pepper. Mix well. (You may find it easier to put the ingredients at this point into a large bowl and mix together with your hands.) 3. Drizzle remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil inside the peppers. Arrange the cut side of the peppers up in a baking dish, then stuff peppers with filling. Combine ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, Tabasco sauce, and 1/4 cup of water in a small bowl, then spoon over filling. Add 1/4 cup of water to the baking dish. Place in oven and bake for 4050 minutes (or longer, depending on how big the peppers are that you are stuffing), until the internal temperature of the stuffed peppers is 150-160°F. Yield: Serves 4-6.

Donations being accepted for renovations Over the past few months a group of volunteers have been working toward renovating the livestock barns at the 4 - H Fairgrounds. Many of the facilities were built 50+ years ago and are in need of renovation. A plan was developed to build a new show arena, a new horse barn, and then refurbish the pens and

stalls. Projected cost of the project is $185,000 thus the $31,000 is a good start but there is lots of work ahead. The group will continue to meet, discuss the project's direction, and reevaluate its progress. Anyone wishing to make a donation can do so by sending a check to the Posey County 4 - H Barns Project, PO

Box 565, Mount Vernon, Ind. 47620. All donations are being held in an account that would allow return of the donations if the project does not come to fruition. For more information one can contact committee members including, B. J. Reynolds, Bob Prince, Jon Neufelder, or Jim Swinney.

North Posey teachers-district reach two-year agreement By Valerie Werkmeister In what Superintendent Dr. Todd Camp called a win-win for both sides, the NEA of North Posey and the MSD of North Posey reached a two-year contract agreement for the 2011-2012 and 2012-2013 school years. Camp made the announcement, and the board approved the contract during their regular meeting Monday, June 13. The contract grants a 1.5 percent stipend, a 0.5 percent increase to the salary schedules and a one percent stipend in 2012-2013. The stipends will be paid in March of each respective year. Non-certified and cafeteria staff were granted a 1.5 percent stipend for the 2011-2012 school year. They will also receive a 0.5 percent increase in the salary schedule with a one percent stipend in 2012 and 2013. Bus drivers were given a $1 increase to their salary schedule per day. It was also the end of Camp’s contract and the board approved to extend the contract to the 2013-2014 school year. Camp also received a $1,000 performance stipend that will be paid on the June 24, payroll, a $1,500 increase in salary for the 2011- 2012 school year and a $100 increase in the cell phone allowance for the top tier cell phone participants. Members of the technology department are included in the top tier of this program. Textbook fees for the upcoming school year were approved. The fees are as follows: kindergarten - $43.96; 1st grade - $71.50; 2nd grade – 68.30; 3rd grade – 67.36; 4th grade – 76.11; 5th grade – 80.46; 6th grade – 81.94. An additional $2 art fee will also be added. South Terrace Principal Kelly Carlton plans to incorporate detentions as a form of punishment for the upcoming school

year. The change was noted in the student handbook and approved by the school board. Students with detention will be expected to stay an additional 30 minutes after school on designated days. Parents will be expected to pick up the students after detention. Camp said the school will work with parents to determine a day that will fit their schedule. Personnel issues dominated a bulk of the meeting with many resignations as well as several new hires were announced and approved. Resignations included the following: Jessica Ivy as the cross country coach; Krystal Roudebush as the freshman volleyball coach; Rob Deters as the junior high football coach; Pam Redman as a cook at South Terrace and Ronna Mullins as a bus driver. At South Terrace Elementary, Christine Fulton was hired as a new first grade teacher, Dustin George was hired as a new fourth grade teacher and Alison Rose will work as a preschool teacher. Valerie Parker was also hired as a new cook. At North Elementary (NES), Amber Oakley will teach the new pre-school program half day and the developmentally delayed pre-school half day. Leah Weber was hired as a new fourth grade teacher. At the high school, Amy Moore will become the new art teacher, Carrie Schmitt will teach English and Kevin Smith will also teach English and serve as the new head baseball coach. Paige Quaide will serve as the new math teacher. At the junior high, Jonathan Spencer will assume the additional role of junior high football coach. Krystle Roudebush will become the new 8th grade volleyball coach. Emily Dillon was hired as new bus driver. Camp gave a report on how the NES renovation project is progressing. The wood fascia on the outside of the building

was rotten and will need to be replaced. Camp is waiting on the quote from the contractor to factor this into the project overage costs. The board also discussed the flooding and drainage problem under the high school bleachers. Board president Joe Neidig noted they will need to discuss plans for a resolution to the problem soon. Posey County Sheriff Greg Oeth contacted Camp to discuss the possibility of assigning a school resource officer to North Posey. The possibility of a matching grant program exists and Camp stated they could also use funds from the Safe and Healthy Schools grant to help pay for an officer’s salary. The idea will be further discussed in upcoming meetings. In other business, the board approved: •A request by Scott Kavanaugh to assume responsibility of the junior high vending machines for the upcoming school year. A vending machine will be purchased at a cost of $1,600. All proceeds from the machine will go towards the junior high’s extra-curricular activity or ECA account fund. Kavanaugh hopes to eliminate the need for future junior high school fundraisers. •A request by North Elementary School Principal Tim Teel to use $1,850 in ECA funds to purchase mulch for the playground. •A grant submittal by Marilyn Rogers for the biomedical science department.

Sermon of the Week: Thoughts on Being Dad Pastor’s Weekly Devotion, Pastoral Ministries "Father lived solely for the glory of God and for the spread of the Gospel of JesusChrist" (The Life of Dwight L. Moody, William R. Moody, Introduction). These are the words William R. Moody wrote in the biography about his father, Dwight L. Moody. What greater testimony could a father receive from his son? The demands of ministry need not distract or take away from being the godly dad. Dwight L. Moody had a demanding schedule as a pastor, evangelist, leader of Bible Institute and extensive traveling for his ministry. Yet home was home to him. In the biography, his son wrote, "The home, above all other places, is where a man most truly reveals him-

self, and here Mr. Moody was at his best. Home was the sweetest place upon earth to him, . . . Entering into all the plans and interested in everything which demanded the attention of the members of his family, he made their life his own. . . Nothing was too trifling for his notice, and in the home and community he became the great burdenbearer" (ibid, p.515). Among the qualifications for pastors, family life is twice referred to. One of these is having the respect of their children. (I Timothy 4-5). Godly dads cannot keep their children from choosing the wrong course in life. But they can be the dad God has called them to be. The following characteristics make pastors who have children a good dad. Living an authentic

faith. It's not feeling the pressure of being a good dad because you are a pastor. It's being a good dad because that's your desire as a believer. How you really handle life is what makes a lasting impression on your children. Confirming each child's individuality within the family. One of the most important roles of parents is affirming the godly personhood of each child. How a son or daughter is affirmed in the home prepares them for healthy relationships with their future spouse, children and others. Respect the maturity level of each child. A dad is to be a protector of his family. This includes protecting them from the mindset of the world. Involved in this is protecting their child-

hood, that is letting them mature in pace with their physical body and learning level of their mind. Maintain quality and quantity time with family. Many dads have a schedule that involves being away from home. One thing to remember is when at home be at home. This means giving full attention to family life. Carve out time for those special events in a child's life. Children can accept a dad's work schedule when they know they have a place of priority in his life. Let other godly people influence your children. In connecting with your children, godly people can reinforce your values and impact their life in areas you can't. And when your children hit those teenage years and beyond, they will more

likely trust you in helping them connect with the right people. Also, pastors have the opportunity of acquainting their children with godly influencers in the community, country and world. These may be missionaries, Christian business persons, other noteworthy people or just special ordinary people. Such people can have a lasting impression on your children. There are perks in being a preacher's kid. Pass the blessing on to each child. In their book, The Blessing, Gary Smalley and John Trent describe the family blessing as having five elements. "A family blessing begins with meaningful touching. It continues with a spoken message of high value, a message that pictures a special future for the individual being blessed, and

one that is based on an active commitment to see the blessing come to pass" (p. 27). Foremost is giving your children a faith that has eternal value. As a dad, treasure the relationship with your children. Let them know what they mean to you. Scripture "He (overseer) must rule his own household well, keeping his children under control, with true dignity, commanding their respect in every way and keeping them respectful" (I Timothy 3:4, Amplified Bible). "Fathers, do not irritate and provoke your children to anger-do not exasperate them to resentment-but rear them (tenderly) in the training and discipline and the counsel and admonition of the Lord" (Ephesians 6:4, Amplified Bible).

Johnson Controls recognizes Mount Vernon’s Chuck Gray

Arif Quraishi, vice president, Sales & Marketing, Energy Solutions – Americas, Johnson Controls, presents Chuck Gray, water superintendent, city of Mount Vernon, Ind., with a Building Efficiency Local Leader (BELL) Award at the 2011 AWWA Conference & Expo on June 13, in Washington, D.C. The BELL Award is presented to communities that demonstrate outstanding commitment to energy efficiency and environmental stewardship. Gray and the Mount Vernon utility board recently implemented a comprehensive water conservation program that is expected to save more than $13 million in energy costs over 15 years.

Johnson Controls (NYSE: JCI), the global leader in delivering solutions to municipalities that optimize energy and water efficiencies in buildings, recognized Chuck Gray, water superintendent, city of Mt. Vernon, Ind., yesterday evening with a Building Efficiency Local Leader (BELL) Award. The BELL Award was presented at the company’s signature Leak Detectives reception, as part of the 2011 American Water Works Association (AWWA) Annual Conference & Exposition (ACE11) in Washington, D.C. The BELL Award is presented to individuals and municipalities that demonstrate outstanding environmental stewardship and commitment to energy efficiency. With support from the city’s utility board, Gray’s leadership to successfully imple-

ment a comprehensive water conservation program earned him this recognition. “I’m honored to receive this award on behalf of the city of Mt. Vernon,” said Gray. “This vital water conservation program will have a lasting positive impact on our community, providing our city with safe water, significant cost savings and a reduced carbon footprint without increasing tax dollars.” The multi-phase water and energy program launched in 2007 with the implementation of an Automated Meter Reading (AMR), including the replacement of 3,300 outdated water meters. Phase two completed in 2010, included wastewater treatment plant upgrades, increasing treatment capacity to 4.4 million gallons and preventing 720,000 gallons

of untreated water per day from being discharged into the Ohio River. The comprehensive program is expected to save Mt. Vernon more than $13 million in energy costs over 15 years. “Gray and the utility board should be commended for their vision and ongoing efforts to make a real difference for Mt. Vernon residents,” said Tom Hogan, account executive, State and Municipal Solutions, Johnson Controls. “The AMR and water treatment plant solutions will ensure a healthier and more sustainable environment for many years to come.” A third phase to the city’s water program is in development to further enhance overall energy efficiency of the utility infrastructure and increase water and energy savings.

By Pam Robinson Terri Austin, Executive Director of the Mount Vernon Housing Authority, received welcome notification this past Tuesday, June 14, from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, or HUD, in Washington, D.C. For the second year in a row, HUD has designated Cloverleaf Apartments in Mount Vernon as a “High Performer.” In addition, HUD conferred the title on Mount Vernon’s Section 8 housing. The High Performer award is the most prestigious award the federal agency can bestow on a housing authority. This year’s High Performer designation results from inspections conducted earlier in the month for both Cloverleaf and Section 8 housing. Cloverleaf scored a 99.6 percent—the highest score received since 1998—out of a possible 100 points. Last year, the 35-year-old facility scored a 91 for the first time in over 10 years. A High Performer must earn at least 90 out of 100 points. HUD surveyors judged performance at Cloverleaf in four areas: financial, management, resident satisfaction and physical. Austin explains that the facility lost four-tenths of a point to a steamy window with a broken seal. The half-day inspection included a look at 21 resident apartments chosen randomly along with the grounds around and all common areas inside the four-story complex. The High Performer award entitles Cloverleaf to greater federal funding for capital improvements to the building.

Austin credits the success of Cloverleaf to diligent contract laborers, dedicated maintenance and office staff and conscientious tenants who report issues in the building as they arise. “I have two of the best maintenance staff anywhere in Danette Higdon and Leroy Lindenberg,” Austin states. She praises Cloverleaf secretary Glenda Bullard for her organizational and interpersonal skills. Although based on different criteria, Section 8 housing was noted as a Higher Performer also. The inspection, known as a SEMAP review, looks at randomly-selected charts to insure family incomes and monthly rents have been figured correctly. After reviewing the charts herself, Austin sat with an auditor who checked the accuracy of the records. Again, Austin credits her staff with the accomplishment: Section 8 Coordinator Sue Lindenberg and her assistant Suzanne Robison. A total of 83 residents, primarily senior citizens, make their home at Cloverleaf while 181 families live in Section 8 housing. Cloverleaf has a small waiting list of applicants while Section 8 housing has a waiting list of over 100 families. Austin said more families than ever before await Section 8 housing due to the troubled economy. The community can take pride in knowing the Mount Vernon Housing Authority facilities are ranked the highest in Indiana under HUD guidance, performing the best they possibly can.

Debt of gratitude owed to those who chose to be involved Something exciting has happened in Posey County over the past few weeks. Just Tuesday, we learned that Posey County will have a fourth TRUTH... ambulance after all. And if STRANGER the meetings I have attended THAN are any indication, it will not FICTION be long before it is a reality. BY DAVE However, changing some- PEARCE thing that has been in place since the 1970s in Posey County takes some doing. The three ambulances have basically located in the same three places since funeral homes stopped providing ambulance service many years ago. And to be perfectly honest, forwardthinking has not been a strength in local people or local government in the years since I have been associated with Posey County. A debt of gratitude is owed. Several years

ago, Marrs Township Volunteer Fire Chief Larry Schenk began attending county meetings from time to time and planted the seed that if the St. Philip area continued to grow, better ambulance service would be needed even worse than it was already. But it wasn’t until the ambulance that served the northern end of the county was pulled to cover shifts in St. Philips that other area people stood up and took notice. While the majority of Posey County’s residents were unaware (and unconcerned) about what was going on with emergency health service in the county, at least a few northern Posey County residents took notice and stood up for their neighbors. No one has been more instrumental in get-

ting county government to realize the need for additional ambulance service in Posey County than Cynthiana businessman Chuck Pearson. While he would not be one to take credit, he has spent countless hours and many dollars from his own coffers to help perpetuate a dialogue that has led to the approval of improved ambulance service. But he certainly was not alone. There are several names that come to mind. Patti Wilson, owner of Harold’s Restaurant, has also been an outspoken proponent of the measure. Walter Broadhead, a former Poseyville businessman, has also spoken at county meetings in favor of improved ambulance service. But many people have played a part in this important decision. Although the ambulance study probably provided us with little that we didn’t already know, someone had to realize that a study of some kind was a first step in seeing the need for the additional service and the areas where it was needed. I commend members of the community who came out in large numbers to hear the results of the study at the Posey County 4-H Fairgrounds back in late March. Many of those folks, with encouragement and transportation provided by Chuck Pearson, understood for the first time that several areas in Posey County were looking at an ambulance response time in excess of 15 minutes. Those who attended also learned that biological death comes usually within the first six minutes after a severe heart attack or stroke. But while accolades are being bantered about, I can’t help but mention a few more names. Posey County Commissioner Jim Alsop has been active in every step of the

ambulance process and has taken extra time to attend not only the commissioners’ meetings but also several of the council meetings in an effort to represent the people of Posey County. I was proud of the way the people of Posey County conducted themselves as the results of the study were presented in March. What could have turned into an emotional name-calling, finger-pointing melee actually turned out to be a productive meeting. Even the Posey County Farm Bureau, represented by Cheryl Seib, voiced its support of the measure, even if it meant a small tax increase. As I have heard several times over the past few months, you simply can’t put a price on a life. This entire process has restored a little of my faith in local government to hear the will of the people and make an effort to make it happen. For those who chose not to become involved in any way, the next time someone in your household, family, or neighborhood needs emergency medical attention, remember that it was those who chose to get involved that makes a reasonable response time possible in your time of need. It is amazing what can happen when everyone works together. The professionalism shown by members of the community and Posey County government is to be commended. And sometimes, as I heard someone say during one of the meetings, you do things like this simply because “it is the right thing to do.” Thank you to all who had a part in it. Posey County is a better, safer place to live, work, and travel because of the effort you put forth.

Yard sale prep confirms Jess’s maturity Letters to the Editor New Harmony Legion puts out impressive spread A couple of weeks ago I received a phone call from a cousin in Arkansas asking if I could arrange a cousin reunion for our Aunt Gustie’s 97th birthday. This was to include his five grown sons from the Chicago/Wisconsin area. Sure, why not? Approximately 30 people, more or less, no problem! After shopping around Mount Vernon and New Harmony, I decided on the American Legion in New Harmony, and this turned out to be the right decision. The out-of-town visitors had nothing but the best to say about the food, service, price, etc. My cousin asked me if we could do this again next year at the same place. I have not been an active member of this Legion Auxiliary for several years, and I was very much impressed with the efficiency of the ladies preparing for our get-to-gather. I

arrived early to set up tables, decorate, and I was pleasantly surprised to find tables arranged, cloths, floral center pieces, place settings, all in place. Very nicely done! Good work, ladies!! The entire area, including the kitchen, was spotless. Our food buffet was served on time and was absolutely delicious. Raves from all of us. At the end of the meal the ladies collected our plates, policing the area in order for us to visit comfortably for the rest of the evening. I was not aware of the fact the Legion is now serving meals weekday evenings with a special each evening along with a large menu offering. I hope that more persons will dine there and support our Legion more. I am going to try. Sue M. Buller New Harmony

Several of my friends and I will share the same heartache this fall: our children—for some of us, the last of our children—enter high school FOR THE then. In four years, we will face an empty nest and will RECORD long for the constant chatter and clatter once filling our BY PAM ROBINSON lives. The preparations for our garage sale this past weekend underscored my daughter Jessica’s maturity. Jim and I asked her to decide what items in storage she wanted to put up for sale. For Jessica, it was a no-brainer: she started putting price stickers on all the childish things she’d put away. Nothing was sacred to her. When we brought Jessica home from China, my nephew Reg sent her an Asian baby doll made by American Girl. Reg wanted Jessica to hold a doll that looked like her. The doll was named Maggie after one of the Chinese translators who loved Jessica dearly. For years, Maggie went with Jessica everywhere. They even had their picture made together. “Mom, how much should I put on this doll?” Jessica asked one night last week. When I looked up from sorting items in

a box of my own belongings, I saw the familiar Asian baby doll grasped by one hand and dangling like a dirty rag at Jessica’s side. “That’s Maggie,” I sputtered. “I know,” Jessica said matter-of-factly. “Do you think she’s worth five dollars?” “Yes, I think so,” I replied, barely managing to keep the edge of hysteria out of my voice. Jessica placed a $5 sticker on Maggie and dropped her unceremoniously into the box with all the other dolls she will never play with again. In fact, not one doll is left in our house. Old Father Time delivers harsh blows. Jessica is our youngest child, but she’s definitely not a baby anymore. Oh sure, I’m pleased my daughter helps me with housework and laundry. I’m pleased to attend her academic and sporting events and to have adult conversations with her. I’m pleased she will soon relieve me of my chauffeuring duties. I’m proud of the young woman I behold. Still, if I could be granted one wish, I’d ask to spend time again with the toddling Jessica and her Maggie.

Wendy McNamara -- Helping Hoosier Farmers Agriculture has been a staple of Indiana’s economy from the time our state was first settled to present day. Hoosier farmers bring immense value to our state from providing Indiana with a robust industry to supplying our farmers markets. This legislative session, it was important to me that I aid our farmers in as many ways possible which is why I supported legislation to help Hoosier farmers. It is essential that legislators take steps to protect Indiana’s agricultural community.

Agritourism is critical to the economic health of rural regions in our state and to the sustainability of family farms. House Enrolled Act 1133 addresses agritourist safety and liability reform. Agritourism is a booming industry in Indiana and allows Hoosiers the ability to experience farm-life firsthand by allowing participation in agricultural experiences such as farmer’s markets, mazes, petting zoos, scenic byways tours, wineries, living history farms, tractor hay rides and u-pick it farms.

For example in our community, we have the New Generation Dairy Farm, where the owner, Brian Rexing, was recently named for being the 2011 Outstanding Dairy Producer of the Year by the Indiana Professional Dairy Producers. The bill gives Hoosier family farmers, who participate in agritourism, limited liability protection. Providers of agritourism will be responsible for posting warning signs and including warning notices in contracts signed by participants

informing them of the risks that come with agritourism activities. The bill states that an agritourism provider is not liable for the injury or death of participants if the cause is part of risks that inherently come with agritourism activities. Additionally, House Enrolled Act 1387 was passed which streamlines the referendum process for the continuation of the Commodity Market Development Council and provides additional options for check-off programs.

Gavel Gamut’s “$14 Trillion and Counting” If you are one of the hopelessly bored people who read last week’s column, you may recall the topic has been airport and national security. I decided to write about this topic when our daughter was forced to relinquish her Vermont Maple Syrup because it contained more than 3.4 ounces. When this was coupled with the Transportation Security Administration’s policy to allow knitting needles and pointed scissors to be carried on, I felt the need to exorcise the Security Demons. The first time I rode in an airplane was June 1963. I had just joined the United States Air Force which flew me on a commercial airliner from California to San Antonio, Texas. I was nineteen and quite impressed. This Air Force gig looked pretty cushy. Then I was met by my friendly training instructors. The Air Force called them TI’s as the Air Force

saw itself as above the mere drill instructors of the other branches. However, from

GAVEL GAMUT BY JUDGE JIM REDWINE what I could tell, the main training we received was how to eat too fast and get up too early. But this column is not about my decidedly mundane military experience. It is about some government officials’ all out panic since September 11, 2001. When I got on that airplane in 1963 I simply walked on. And, to my knowledge, since Orville and Wilbur Wright, we have had only three incidents in which flights originating in America were made to crash by criminals. Now that is over 100 years

and millions of flights. During that same 100 or so years we have lost hundreds of thousands of our citizens just on our highways. Yet we do not inconvenience ourselves with searches every time we get on an interstate highway. No, we take the reasonable and constitutionally valid approach of allowing free access then, if someone drives drunk or causes harm, we charge them with crimes or hold them civilly responsible. We have inserted ourselves into numerous countries that had nothing to do with the suicidal criminals who brought down the flights on September 11, 2001. Those men were virtually all disaffected refugees from Saudi Arabia, not Iraq, not Iran, not Palestine, not Afghanistan, not Libya, not Pakistan and not Syria. Yet we have spent trillions of dollars and thousands of lives devising schemes that have created

enemies from former friends and made us more vulnerable, not safer. As we thought we had learned from almost twenty years (1956 – 1975) involvement in Viet Nam, we cannot afford financially, morally or diplomatically to attempt to impose, by force, our will on other cultures. The ancient Egyptians, Persians, Greeks and Romans as well as the Spanish, French and English in the 17th and 18 centuries and the Japanese, Germans and Soviets during the 20th century all saw their countries decline when they spent their treasure on guns instead of butter. As long as we continue to live in fear of shampoo, shaving lather and maple syrup in excess of 3.4 ounces while we intervene in some countries using money we have to borrow from other countries, Osama bin Laden may be dead, but he will not have been defeated. ASSISTANT EDITOR, MV OFFICE PAM ROBINSON

Agriculture is one of the most important industries in Indiana and needs Hoosier support, which we can do by visiting local farmers’ markets in our community. The recent floods have caused our farmers to face many obstacles this season and they need our support now more than ever. The advantages of farmers’ markets are vast. They allow us to support our local economy, intake nutritionally rich food and help the environment by reducing gas amounts needed for food transport. I encourage you all to visit a local farmers’ market this summer. There are many to visit in our community, below is information for two: The Vanderburgh County Farm Bureau Farmers’ Market runs every Friday through October 7th from 8:00 am to 2:00pm in downtown Evansville. For more information go to:

The Farmers Market in Mount Vernon kicked off its third year last Tuesday and will run every Tuesday through August. It has a new location this year, which is located on East Fourth street between McDonalds and Dominos Pizza and will be open from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. For more information go to: edu/counties/posey/Pages/ ernonFarmers%27Market. aspx Farmers’ markets provide producers and growers yet another tool to market and to sell their agricultural commodities. Their locally grown food is cost affordable and provides a fresh, tasty and most importantly nutritious food option. Farming is a way of life in Southern Indiana and I will continue to support this industry when voting on farm legislation in the General Assembly. Our farmers have had definite weather setbacks this season, but I feel confident our community will rally together and that we will soon be back on track.

Love of garden makes Barnes home beautiful...inside and out


arvin and Judy Barnes sat on the porch of their New Harmony home, rocking back and forth on their swing and chair, respectively. Birds chirp nearby, and the sound of a hammer reverberated from across the street as the couple looked over the flower garden that serves as the centerpiece of their home and garden. A graduation party for their grandson the day before left the immaculate garden no worse for the wear, despite the large crowd. Instead, the shrubs and flowers lining the yard were free of debris, a fact that could be attributed to the time the Barnes dedicate to the preservation of their garden. “We probably had about 120 people here, judging by the number of hamburgers and hotdogs I prepared,” Darvin said with a laugh. The Barnes enjoy having company, and they said the graduation party was not their first time hosting guests. Darvin spent 31 years in the military, and the couple traveled the world and made many friends along the way. “We run a bed and breakfast, lunch and dinner for all our friends,” Darvin said. “It’s a no-charge thing and we just have a lot of fun with it.” Judy smiled at her husband’s statement and added, “And the funny thing is, people come back and bring their friends that we don’t even know.” The Barnes have 32 old-fashioned rose bushes, an arbor and a fountain in their garden. Although inclement weather has put their planting behind by about three weeks, Darvin said the roses bloomed on time and were probably the prettiNew Harmony resident Darvin Barnes works in the flower garden outside his New Harmony home.

Annual Hat Luncheon brings out crowds and colors By Holly Heerdink Bright-colored hats filled the New Harmony Inn and Conference Center on Thursday, June 16, for the annual Summer Hat Luncheon.

Participants competed against one an-

Winners included Nancy Drake in the category “Summer Folly,” Patricia Gosh in “Exotic Interlude,” Pat Bateman in “High Society Affair,” Sue Huelsmann in “Understated Elegance,” Mary Beth Williams in “Most Creative,” Sue Nesler and Ann Greenfield in “Best Ensemble” and Mary Kennard in “Best of the Best.” In the hat competition, Paula Nurren-

bern won the prize for “Mad Hatter,” and Jan Davies won “Top Hat.” After a table preview and reception at 11 a.m., the luncheon catered by The Red Geranium began at noon. Guests enjoyed a variety of entertainment including a style show from The Antique Showrooms in the Mews and a vignette from “Lost in Yonkers.” “Lost in Yonkers” had its opening night Friday,

June 17, and is being performed in part by USI’s New Harmony Theater at Murphy’s Auditorium. Lucheon participants could sponsor tables for four or more people. Each ticket cost $35, and $20 from each ticket went directly to Historic New Harmony’s Bicentennial Project. The captain from each table was responsible for bringing the tablecloth, napkins, centerpiece, dinnerware and table service.

Brothers steal the show as ‘Lost in Yonkers’ opens in New Harmony

By Lois Mittino Gray Two talented local high school boys may be “Lost in Yonkers”, but they found their future career paths in Murphy Auditorium. This was evident watching their faces light up and explode into bright smiles as they received a standing ovation on the opening night of their first professional theater production. New Harmony Theatre opened its twenty-fourth season Friday night with the Pulitzer Prize-winning dramedy “Lost in Yonkers” by Neil Simon. The semi-autobiographical play is the story of two brothers who must go to live with their tyrant grandmother after their mother’s cancer death while father travels and works to pay the $9,000 medical bills. All they know of her is a nickname “Frankenstein’s Grandma’ and that dad says she could be the greatest golfer in the world with “the way she swings that cane so fast”. The two brothers steal the show in the first half when they discuss the family foibles and characters as they anticipate meeting Grandma Kurnitz. Mount Vernon High School sophomore Mikey Stephens-Emerson is Jay, the 15-year-old protective older sibling who dreams of better days ahead while groveling under grandma’s thumb. His blustery outburst to Louie, played by Jonathan Brody* (background) upset with sister Bella, played by Claire Warden*, while their Uncle Louie proved the young man able to deliver tough lines nephews Arty, actor Craig Belwood, and Jay, actor Mikey Stephens-Emerson, as well as sister Gert, actress Polly Continued on Page B3 McKie, listen in.*Members of Actors’ Equity Association

Brittlebank finally getting their feet wet after delays

Jake Duckworth of the Brittlebank Barracudas swims the 50 m freestyle for the team during Tuesday night’s event at the Olney, Ill., pool. Photo by Terri Koch By Steve Joos The season has gotten off to a strange start for the Brittlebank age group swim team. First, the Mount Vernon park pool’s season opener was pushed back due to the weather and a lack of swimmers on the part of the other teams. Then this week, the Barracudas swam on Tuesday, but water from the sky washed out their weekend competition. Brittlebank was to have competed Saturday in the Carmi Invitational meet, but rainy weather forced it to be postponed until a later date. The Cudas started the week by finishing second at Olney Tuesday night, scoring 293 points to come in well behind the host Tiger Sharks (504). McLeansboro was third with 189. The youth swim season got off to (what else?) a weather-delayed start for the Brittlebank Barracudas Saturday, as they finished third in the Wabash Valley Invitational at Mount Carmel. The Courey sisters had a big day, as Alyssa Courey (nineyear-old girls) and Maiya Courey (10-year-old girls) were among five Cudas who registered high point performances. The others included Todd Ghrest (11-12 boys), Hannah Cross (13-14 girls) and D.A. Wilson (open boys). The Cudas were to have opened the season with a triangular against Carmi and Fairfield in Illinois, but the meet was called off in part due to the recent rough weather which hit the area. Fairfield’s pool just opened on the day before the meet was scheduled to take place, Brittlebank manager Ruth Fulwider explained. In addition, Carmi’s team was just being organized. The meet is now set for Saturday, July 9.

St. Wendel softball pushed back

The St. Wendel Friday softball league’s slate of games set for last week had to be moved back due to the St. Wendel Babe Ruth baseball team’s make up game with Princeton White. Friday’s games (Ritchie Mason vs. Marty Fisher, O’Risky Excavating vs. the Young Guns and Team Linex vs. the Silver Bell) will be played this Friday, with the schedule moving up a week through the rest of the campaign.

tough lines as well as comedic gags, and the audience loved it. Craig Belwood, a North High School junior, played the irascible scamp 13-yearold brother Arty with flair and with a lot of attitude he called “moxie”. He jumped on couches, feared his grandma, and showed us all how to get laughs while eating a bowl of soup. The theater’s new artistic director Elliott Wasserman brought out the best in both boys, and they were naturals in their roles. Four of the seven actors in the cast are members of the Actors Equity Association with considerable professional experience. Diane Ciesla, as the tough as nails German grandmother fills the stage with her huge emotional presence and disdaining looks. As her story is told, we realize what a survivor she is after enduring hardship and pain all her life and bearing six children. She tells Arty, “It’s not important that you hate me. It is important that you live”. The second half of the show belongs to Bella, the boy’s 35-year-old aunt who they describe as being “closed for repairs”. She is exhuberant and loving and mildly mentally retarded. She may be “always a child”, but she yearns for married life and children of her own. Trying to get this message to her dictatorial mother who has ruled her life, Claire Warden has touching scenes as she slowly tries to break in to

Grandma’s hard head with her feelings and dreams. Bella’s brother Uncle Louie, performed by Jonathan Brody, rolls with the punches as a small-time gangster bagman. He befriends the boys and tries to give them advice on dealing with grandma and her accusations of stealing pretzels from the candy shop she owns. He is a wonderful mix of brash bravado and heartfelt concern for Bella and the boys. Dominic Comperatore is Eddie, the boys’ father, who fears his own mother but knows he has to leave them with her to get the family through tough times. His character is mainly seen just at the beginning and the end and exposed thoughout the play by a series of letters. Laughs abound when the remaining cast member Polly McKie does

North Posey’s Red and black going down to the wire By Steve Joos The weather is still not fully cooperating as the two North Posey teams continue to duke it out with the South Gibson Babe Ruth baseball league about to enter the last week of its regular season. Rain washed out Saturday’s games and left North Posey Red and North Posey Black still tied for the top spot in the league. Regular season play is set to wrap up later this week, with tournament action set to get underway Sunday at Haubstadt. Black started the week by winning a make-up game and then ran into a wall against visiting Owensville, losing 16-3 in six innings under the 10-run rule. “The guys that you bring, Micahel Bender’s out with an injury and when a 15-yearold’s hurt, you bring a 14-year-old, plug him in and they boys I’ve put in are actually playing,” coach Damien Word said. “The problem is, there’s a few 15-year-olds who aren’t stepping up right now. We’re playing for first, we have a two-game lead and tonight, we come in and we played like we should not even be contending. We looked horrible tonight.” Name the facet of the game and Black had trouble with it, Voegel added, adding that the team may have been tired after playing three games in five nights, but that schedule will be the norm for the next few weeks as the league makes up its previously rained-out contests and the post-season tournament. Owensville struck for five runs in the top of the sixth inning after digging Black into a hole over the first three frames by scoring three runs an inning. The loss followed an 11-6 win over Haubstadt Legion at Gibson Southern. James Marshall had three hits and three runs scored, while Christian Jones had two hits. Griffin Wiethrop singled, while Zach Carl started Black on its nine-run third inning by smacking a bases-clearing double to the gap. Jerad Hostettler, Austin Graves and Herman Wright each singled, while Jones also smacked a bases-clearing double in the third and picked up the win on the mound. Red dropped an 11-10 decision to VFW at Fort Branch in an earlier make-up game, after they let an 8-0 lead get away. “We gave them a bunch of unearned runs,” Voegel said. “We had seven errors and walked three or four people. Dylan Wright ran out of innings and then we ran

out of 15-year-old innings.” Beau Cox took over from there, but some defensive lapses behind him led to more unearned runs. Red also ran out of steam offensively after scoring eight runs in the first two innings, Voegel added. Red then got a no-hitter from Grant Scheller as they blanked Oakland City 19-0 in the second game of the week. Wright backed up Scheller’s pitching with two hits, while Connor Voegel, Reed Gertesen and Ryan Gish each had one, as did Michael Sims and Cox. Scheller helped his own cause with a pair of blows, while Zach Stoneberger had three blows. That set up a Wednesday rematch with VFW and a statement game by Red, along with an 8-0 victory. “I think we gave (the earlier game with VFW) away,” Voegel said. “We made seven errors and nine of their runs were unearned.” Wright tossed a one-hitter with eight strikeouts while going the distance, allowing just five basernners. He also reached base twice and scored two runs, while Gertesen got on base three times and scored twice. Gish had four hits, while Gertesen and Motz each had one. Scheller had two hits and sparked the team’s five-run fourth inning uprising with a drag bunt that scored two runs. Red got some good pitching and good defense as they survived a make-up game with Princeton Red 8-5 Thursday. “We played really good defense,” Voegel said. “We only had one error, which is a lot better than what we have been have been doing and we got some really good pitching to night.” Baseruning miscues kept Red from adding even more runs, as did a lack of hitting with runners in scoring position, but red took advantage of some wildness and scored three runs on wild pitches in the bottom of the fourth. Motz and Wright each had a hit, while Gertesen had two. Gish and Stoneberger each had three blows. St. Wendel was 3-2 in the preceding week and had been playing much better, according to coaches Danny Embrey and Gene Wildeman. Then along came this week and they ran into trouble, dropping two of three, An error on Damon Cardin’s grounder to short capped a four-run seventh inning

Earlier in the week, St. Wendel had lost a 14-11 shootout at Owensville and then dropped a 9-3 decision to visiting Haubstadt Merchants. Blake Wildeman had two hits, as did Derek Lindauer, with one of Lindauer’s blows a double. Andrew Cumbee had two hits as well for St. Wendel, while Lindauer drove in a pair of runs. Cumbee threw a good game to pick up the win.

“We didn’t come to play (earlier in the week),” Wildeman said. “On Wednesday night, Merchants threw their best pitcher at us. This was a good team we beat (Friday). They beat Red and Black earlier in the week.” Embrey was especially pleased with the team’s improved hitting and defense, while Wildeman said St. Wendel has turned a page since losing to North Posey Black in early June. “We’re a completely different team since we played Black,” Wildeman said.

Poseyville U-14 instructional team takes season title, enters tourney By Steve Joos The Poseyville Two U-14 instructional softball team wrapped up a successful regular season last week and their coach hopes they’re ready to start “A” tournament play this week. “We played a good game,” coach Steve Bullington said. “They were doing an excellent job, and if we continue to do like we’ve been doing, we should be in pretty good shape.” The U-14 squad finished up Thursday with a 17-7 rout of St. Joe at home, closing out their season with an 11-1 record. They started the week with a 16-3 win over New Harmony and then came back to outslug New Harmony 10-8 on Wednesday.

The team consists of Rhiannon Bailey, Aubrey Cummings, Jacie Bullington, Miranda Johnson, Madison Feldrake, Kaci Hoenhert, Hope Craft, Sydney Feldrake, Jessica Morrical, Paige Johnson and Stephanie Michaels. Bullington’s assistants included Kenny Bailey, Ron Craft, Jason Cummings, Scott Feldrake, Bobby Johnson and Rick Rausch. “We’ve been hitting the ball well, pitching good and as long as they keep doing that we should be fine,” Bullington said. “We’ve been in the ‘A’ tournament last year. I’m just real proud of the girls. This is the seventh year we’ve had these girls, and every other year, we’ll have 11 instead of 14. These girls have been together seven years, and every other year, we’ve won either the league or the tournament.

In three or four years, we’ve won both.” In fact, Poseyville Two has a very strong pedigree in the Rural Girls’ League. In addition to being the defending 12year-old “A” tourney champs, they took the “A” title in their second year of U-10 play, won the “B” tourney as a first-year U-12 squad, and took a lower division title in its first year of U-10 play. Poseyville Two starts tourney play Thursday night at a site to be determined. The tourney field includes McCutchanville, Owensville and two other teams which were to be determined. In other games, the U-14 competitive team One fell to the Mater Dei Feeder team from St. Wendel 8-0, while the U-12 team dropped a recent 16-3 decision at the hands of Westside.

Mount Vernon Junior Legion team off to torrid start By Steve Joos On Wednesday night, the Mount Vernon Junior American Legion baseball team survived another slugfest with North Posey’s summer league squad. Another slugfest? Well, the two teams did score a lot of runs. Mount Vernon spotted North Posey five runs in the top of the first inning and the started chipping away. They kept chipping until the Owen Dunn post team pulled out a 9-8 victory in a game where both teams made the most of their hits (eighth for each crew) and got by with more than a little help. “A lot of unearned runs,” Mount Vernon coach Dan McNamara said. “I don’t think either team hit the ball too well. North Posey had eight hits, we had eight hits. A lot of runs for not too many hits.” Despite the loss, North Posey coach Kevin Smith was pleased with the way they performed. “I liked the way we put the ball into play,” Smith said. “Pitching-wise, we were a little wild at times, but I liked the way we battled back. These kids, the two nights I’ve been around them, just have a great attitude.” The new Vikings’ varsity coach, Smith joined the team Tuesday night at Heritage Hills and even though he was concerned with the team’s defense, he was pleased with the effort, adding that the team is trying to work some players into different spots. “I like the way they compete,” he said. “They’re really patient at the plate, they know the strike zone very well, and I was pleased with that. Smith felt that Mount Vernon was able to get some runs back after North Posey took the 5-0 lead, but added that pitcher Tyler Stolz was able to settle down after the first inning. He did think that the team has to learn to finish things off with a big lead. An error in the first inning cost Mount Vernon, giving North Posey some extra outs and helped the visitors build their early lead, but starting pitcher J.T. Silvers settled down after that and held the opposition in check until Trevor Veeck came in and shut down North Posey over the last four innings. “They got four hits off (Silvers),” McNamara said. “He pitched pretty well for not pitching that much for a few weeks. They got two hits in four innings off (Veeck) and he did pretty good for someone who hasn’t pitched in a couple of weeks. Trevor’s arm was irritating him, so it was good to see him come back and pitch. I’m glad to see him back.” Bryce Newman collected a pair of hits, including a double. Drake McNamara doubled, while River VanZant also contributed a pair of blows and Veeck had one. Two errors, a sacrifice and an infield single on what the coach called “a swinging bunt” by Ross Canada brought in the winning runs with two out in the bottom of the sixth. Jevin Redman reached on an error to open the sixth. Another error and a walk loaded the bases ahead of Canada’s tapper up the third-base line which North Posey was unable to come up with. Mount Vernon started chipping away almost immediately after North Posey struck for five in the first, as Post Five scored a run in the bottom of that inning, then striking for three in the second and another three in the third after North Posey had taken a 7-4 lead. Those last tallies knotted things up at 7-7. North Posey scored in the top of the fifth to go up 8-7 before Mount Vernon came back. “We’re two evenly matched teams,” McNamara said of North Posey. “It just depends on which team shows up, as to who wins.” It was busy first two weeks for the Junior Legion team, but a pair of good ones, as they have opened the season with a 7-1 record. Mount Vernon capped its first week of action by sweeping Heritage Hills 6-1 and 3-2. Newman shut out Heritage Hills through six innings in the opener, fanning six. VanZant singled, Redman reached on an error, and then Veeck and Craig Beeson each added RBI singles as Mount Vernon got all the runs they needed in the top of the first inning. Canada settled down after a rough first inning and went the distance to pick up the win in the nightcap, mowing down Heritage Hills until the seventh, when he had to work out of a bases-loaded jam with a fly ball to center field. The Junior Legion trailed 2-1 in the top of the seventh when Collin Varner beat out an infield single, Newman was hit by a pitch and then Canada and VanZant each singled in a run. Mount Vernon played error-free ball in both games, while collecting enough timely hits for the sweep. The Owen Dunn Post Five Junior squad saw a 7-lead get away and then rallied to beat North Posey’s Summer League team 9-8 in eight innings at the Vikings’ baseball field. McNamara was a bit concerned about playing doublehead-

ers on back-to-back nights in the middle of the week, but it didn’t seem to faze his team. “It wasn’t very pretty,” McNamara said. “I don’t think either team would be very proud of their defense.” VanZant held off North Posey over the last two innings after Craig Issac was roughed up in the sixth inning, when North Posey scored five runs and took the lead and Mount Vernon rallied with two out in the top of the seventh to tie the game and then pushed across the game-winner in the eighth, both times taking advantage of a porous North Posey defense. Ryan Goeltz was in and out of trouble in his first start of the season, but he was able to keep North Posey in check over three inning stint, but not before the summer league team scored two runs in the bottom of the first inning to forge a 2-2 tie. That deadlock didn’t last long, as Mount Vernon took a 3-2 lead in the top of the second and then broke loose for three in the top of the fourth, with Beeson’s two-run homer the big blow. But North Posey rallied in the firth and sixth innings, knocking a run off the deficit in the bottom of the fifth and then erupting for five runs and the apparent lead in the sixth. Coach Tom Carl would only cite a strong hitting attack for getting North Posey back in the game. “We did a good job of coming back late in the game,” Carl said. “We struggled early hitting the ball, but we came out in the later innings and started stinging the ball.” Dylan Wright drove in the game-tying run for North Posey in its big sixth inning. They were one out away from a win, but Bryce Newman singled, took second on a passed ball and scored when a bad throw got past the North Posey first baseman and he collided with McNamara. In the eighth, Isaac reached on an error to open the frame and came around on Trevor Vieck’s triple. The season got off to a belated start for Mount Vernon Wednesday with a doubleheader against Junior Pate at Washington Middle School in Evansville. It may have been a delayed start, but it was a good one, as Post Five took both ends of the twin bill 6-0 and 7-5. Newman and Silvers combined on a one-hitter in the first

game, with six strikeouts. VanZant doubled in two runs, while Redman and Veeck each drove in runs. Beeson drove in two RBIs. “Good pitching and solid defense in the first game.” McNamara said. “Game two, we played good defense again and got good pitching. Anytime you play a solid game against those Evansville school and come out with a win, you’re fortunate.” The Post Five Junior team was a year younger last season, so that experience helped this time, McNamara added. Canada started the game and got help out of the bullpen from Varner and Vieck. McNamara had two hits, while VanZant, Issac and Redman each drove in runs. On Thursday, Post Five traveled to Newburgh and split that doubleheader, winning the nightcap 3-2 after falling in the opener 7-2. Hank Dausman pitched well, but a rough third inning proved to be Mount Vernon’s downfall. VanZant tripled and Aaron Roberts doubled in two runs, but it wasn’t enough as Owen Dunn couldn’t get anything going against the Newburgh pitcher. McNamara and Newman each had hits. Roberts walked and Redman, Issac and Seth Reeves each collected RBI singles in the fourth inning to plate Mount Vernon’s runs. VanZant and McNamara each singled to back up the complete-game pitching of McNamara, who fanned six. McNamara had two hits, while VanZant added one. “Drake gave up three or four hits and worked out of a few jams,” the coach said. “The defense helped him out.” The Junior Legion team will be in action over the Fourth of July weekend, with a round robin tournament set for July 2 at Mount Vernon, while the games with Funkhouser Junior which were to have opened the season have been reset for Saturday, July 16, at the Barker Avenue Complex in Evansville. The Junior Legion will open their round robin against Heritage Hills and finish against South Spencer, with the two Spencer County teams squaring off in the middle game. Tuesday’s scheduled game with Boonville was cancelled due to a scheduling conflict on the part of the Warrick County post. A Father’s Day doubleheader with Heritage Hills at Mount Vernon was also called off due to a lack of players.

City, School District earn Community Focus Grant By Pam Robinson In partnering with the Metropolitan School District of Mount Vernon, the City of Mount Vernon has been awarded a Community Focus Fund grant from the Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs, or OCRA, in the amount of $524,287 to complete the storm water improvement project in the Venice Avenue and West Elementary School area. Mayor John Tucker spoke

during a phone interview on Friday afternoon, June 10, about notification of the grant award that came the previous Friday morning, June 3. Tucker said Mount Vernon is one of 22 Indiana communities to receive the Community Focus Fund grant. “It took us three tries to do it,” he commented, “but we never gave up.” He noted that the Metropolitan School District of

Mount Vernon had provided $13,000 for the project’s preliminary engineering report. “This has been a team effort,” Tucker emphasized, “and it shows that perseverance pays off.” The Community Focus Fund grant allows for a much-needed project. Tucker pointed out that the city’s normal annual budget for storm water improvement is only $57,000. The

city will contribute $48,000 matching funds to complete the Venice-West Elementary storm water improvement project. City officials will travel to Indianapolis on Wednesday, July 13, to receive the grant. The projected timetable for the project is as follows: advertise bids in July, release bids in August, release of funds and begin construction in September and complete the project in April 2012.

Kevin Smith to teach in classroom and on North Posey baseball field By Steve Joos Baseball has been part of Kevin Smith’s life since the 1960s. “Baseball’s been in my blood,” the recently appointed coach of the North Posey Vikings said. “I’ve already lost some (hair) on top over it.” Smith is very excited to be at North Posey, where he will replace Scott Reid, after last year’s coach resigned to become principal at Gibson Southern. Smith will become the fifth varsity baseball coach in as many years at North Posey. The Class of 2011 had a new baseball coach in each of their four seasons at North Posey High School. Smith wants to be a resource for the team and wants to help them develop as ballplayers. He’s excited to be a part of the North Posey program and its reputation throughout the Pocket Athletic Conference and in the tough Southeastern Indiana Class 2A Sectional. “I’ve heard a lot of good things about the program,” he said. “I had an opportunity to meet the team, and they are an outstanding

group of young men. I’m looking forward to working with them.” For now, Smith is just watching as assistants Steve Kanvanugh, Wyatt Newman and Derek Wiggins work with the summer league team. There are some things he’d like to see, however. “What I’d like to do is continue to see the kids have fun and work on some of their mechanics, both offensively and defensively,” Smith said. “And then work that knowledge from the games this summer into next spring. If they win some games, great, we’re here to want to win, but we’re here to see the kids work up some strengths and have them ready for next spring.” Smith brings a varied background to both the classroom and the coaches’ box. He spent 24 years in business and industry, including nearly 15 in executive management. He’s in his second year teaching after going through a transition to teaching program. He’s been a varsity assistant on Loogootee’s 2010 Class 1A Regional champs and

also served as an assistant and head coach at Springs Valley in French Lick for two different stints. The new coach wants the Vikings to step on the field with an attitude that they can win. He also wants to help them hone their baseball skills. “I’m a proponent of doing things in a positive fashion and these kids have done some things in a positive fashion,” he said. “We want to take that positive aspect and expand on it.” North Posey was 16-8 on the diamond this spring under Assistant Principal and baseball coach Reid, going 5-3 in the PAC. They dropped their Tell City Sectional opener to No. 1-ranked Forest Park by an 11-9 count. A native of French Lick, Smith graduated from Springs Valley in 1977. The coach and his wife, Debbie, just celebrated their 32nd wedding anniversary prior to his hiring as baseball coach. They have two sons, Adam, a CEO with a chemical company in Houston, Texas, and Derek, a tax accountant in Indianapolis who played

baseball at Franklin College. “Both of those boys played baseball,” he said. “Baseball’s been the life blood of our family when it comes to sports. We’re just enjoying this opportunity.” North Posey is 2-2 on the season after beating Princeton in its season opener on the road and Heritage Hills 19-0 Tuesday night at Lincoln City. The team’s patience at the plate was a big plus at Heritage Hills, Smith said. “They made the pitchers come in to them,” the coach said. “They worked the Heritage Hills pitchers to where they got to their pitches to hit.” North Posey also played well offensively and defensively at Heritage Hills, the coach added. The team was to have played in a tournament at Evansville over the weekend, but had to withdraw due to a lack of players. North Posey was to have played Evansville Funkhouser’s Junior Legion team in its season opener, but that game was called off due to a lack of players.

Flood pictures from 1937 being sought for Mount Vernon River Days 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 at 812-204-7388 or see her at 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.

New fire and EMS station work to begin early July Larry Bennett’s

The New Harmony Town Council took action on Thursday night to prepare the grant application to the Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs for the South Street storm water project. Council approved Larry Stillwell to conduct the archaeological survey at the Labyrinth at a cost of $2,190. In addition, council approved payment of $2,350 to Paul Breeze for the South Road survey, contingent upon recording of the survey and submission of a final legal description. A public hearing will be held regarding the South Street storm water project on Friday, July 1, at 10 a.m. The proposal for the grant application is due Friday, July 22. After the meeting, Councilman Joe Straw spoke also about the construction of the new fire and emergency medical services station in New Harmony. He stated that on Wednesday, June 22, at 10 p.m., the final papers will be signed with the contractors. Danco Construction is expected to begin work after the Fourth of July holiday with completion by the end of the year. In related action at Thursday night’s meeting, council approved ordinance 2011-8, amending ordinance 2011-1, that makes the addition of annexing 1.008 acres of the state right of way at the old fairgrounds property, the site of the new fire and emergency medical services station. In other business: • Council approved the waste collection specifications for bids on the town’s trash collection, running from January 1, 2012, to December 31, 2014. The lowest bidder will receive the town’s contract for services. Sealed bids must be submitted to Town Hall no later than 7 p.m. on Sunday, July 31, 2011. • Council passed resolution 2011-3 authorizing the 2011 town election to be conducted by the Town of New Harmony rather than the Posey County Election Board. • It was the consensus of council members to send a certified letter regarding the demolition of the Simmons property at 916 Brewery Street. • Council approved the festival application for Becky Gray and Rosie Benton to hold a farmer’s market for the sale of produce and homemade items. • It was the consensus of council that Fred Martin do ductwork in Town Hall to resolve climate control issues. • Don Julian, Pharmacy Director at St. Mary’s Hospital in Evansville, presented council with a proposal for provision of primary healthcare services to New Harmony. Julian recommends regular quarterly healthcare screenings, provided through corporate sponsorship, for New Harmony residents. • Clerk-Treasurer Karla Atkins announced that $3,400 had been collected for Maple Hill Cemetery as a result of the mailer asking for donations. • New Harmony resident Carlene VanLaningham announced that Tri-Kappa along with community members had collected $2,311.03 in ten days for the upkeep of the Maple Hill Cemetery. In addition, she thanked council for the loan of the shelter house for the Hoosier Salon Art Camp and suggested staining and coating the picnic tables (which her group covered with plastic) to keep them looking good. Moreover, she recommended that council invest in a speaker system so everyone could hear town proceedings and that bugs be removed from the outside of Town Hall. She also noted that several large branches were still left around town. Councilman Don Gibbs responded that Town Hall is washed down twice a year and that the chipper has been down and thus has slowed progress with clearing large branches. • It was reported that Ryan Farrar had resigned from his duties with the wastewater and water departments, with his last day on June 3. It was then announced that Jeremy Farrar will now head the wastewa-
