Poseyville fire truck grant approved By Valerie Werkmeister It’s going to feel like Christmas in July for the Poseyville Fire Department. After a long roller coaster ride with more downs than ups, Poseyville officials learned on Friday that they were finally being awarded a $150,000 grant to help fund a new rescue truck. The news lifted the spirits of everyone who endured the two previous rejections. “We’re very pleased to get this

award. It was a total community effort. We had three meetings and had complete support from the community. Our community should get the credit,” Poseyville Town Council President Bruce Baker said. The grant is part of a Community Focus Fund grant that is funded by the Community Development Block Grant program. The program is administered by the Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs (OCRA).

In addition to the grant funds, Poseyville and Robb Township will each add $42,500 in funds and an additional $5,000 will be received from the Posey County Community Foundation. The monetary commitment from the community as well as the support displayed during each public hearing went a long way in proving the rescue truck’s importance. “We were just pleased that the third public hearing was just as

Coats visits ravaged Point Township By Holly Heerdink U.S. Senator Dan Coats visited Posey County Friday, June 3, to get a first-hand look at flood damage and talk about the county’s future as it recovers from flood devastation. FEMA representatives joined the discussion and traveled the county to assess the damage. Coats began his day at the Point Township Church of the Nazarene. After arriving, he viewed a slideshow presentation displaying the flood destruction in Posey County. He spoke with county leaders such as Coroner Jay Price and Commissioner President Scott Moye as the presentation played, and he listened to reports stating the flood waters had destroyed 38 homes, caused major damage to 35 homes, minor damage to 25 homes, and affected 100 homes in Posey County. Coats then addressed Posey County residents and listened to their concerns and frustrations. Many people expressed anxiety over property damage and living arrangements, and FEMA representatives explained the process Posey County must complete before it can receive federal aid. “I have to be vague because we don’t know,” the FEMA representative said in response to a question about how long the process will take. “As you know, we’ve been very, very busy this year, unfortunately.” Following the question and answer segment, Coats and Posey County leaders began a bus tour of the affected areas. They stopped at three homes and the


Point Township Fire Station. The first home on the tour belonged to Virginia Sue Thompson. She had lived in her home for 21 years, and she said she does not know what she will do if FEMA cannot provide aid. “I love my home, and I miss Point, I really do,” Thompson said. “And I’m not the only one.” Although a somber attitude dominated most of the tour, Sen. Coats and county leaders were hopeful for the future. As the tour bus drove away from one of the homes, Jay Price pointed to the sandbags piled outside. “Want a sandbag or two for Washington?” he asked Sen. Coats with a smile. Sen. Coats said he thought it was important that he came to Posey County. He thought he needed to do more than hear the statistics and look at reports. “I just wanted to see it, touch it, listen to people and hear their stories,” Coats said. At the conclusion of the flood tour, Sen. Coats changed direction and visited CountryMark Oil Refinery in Mount Vernon. Coats serves as a member of the Energy and Natural Resources Committee, and he supports increasing the domestic energy supply. CountryMark, the only American-owned oil refinery in Indiana, welcomed Sen. Coats, and many employees posed for a picture with him. “We’ve had people like the Senator before, and we always appreciate it when they do show interest,” said John Deaton, the Senior Vice President of Operations. “We’re just really happy that he came.”

Koester to replace Reid in office of Asst. Principal

By Valerie Werkmeister North Posey High School English teacher, Erin Koester, will take on a new role when school starts again in the fall. She was chosen as the new Dean of Students for the high school during a special school board meeting held Tuesday, May 31. She replaces Scott Reid, who served as the high school assistant principal this past year. Reid tendered his resignation in April to pursue another job opportunity. Reid was also the Viking boy’s baseball coach. School board members approved a two-year contract in which Koester will be paid $64,000 the first year and $65,000 the second. She will also be eligible to receive any stipends that may be awarded once a contract is approved with the teacher’s association. Negotiations are currently underway. “I have a passion for students and this opportunity compelled me to do something that would allow me to help the district. There were several qualified candidates for the position and I have a lot of respect for the people who interviewed. I have every confidence in the board for selecting good candidates and I feel honored to be within their ranks,” Koester said. She completed her undergraduate work at Ball State University and received a degree in Education. She earned her master’s degree at the University of Southern Indiana. She is currently continuing her studies in education administration. Once complete, her title will be changed to assistant principal. She and husband, Eric, have three children: Cole and Claire who are students at South Terrace Elementary. Their youngest, Camden, is two.

The first was the cost of the Combined Sewer Overflow project that the City was being mandated by US EPA and IDEM to do. The second was the Agreed Order the City was under with the Indiana Department of Environmental Management for the Sawmill Combined Sewer Overflow that was upstream from our water intake,” Tucker said in a written statement. Tucker stated that even though the items were mandated and would have to be done regardless, he felt that residents of Mount Vernon could not afford the mandates. “So I, immediately upon taking office, started to look for creative ways to fund these federally mandated projects,” Tucker stated. “I am pleased to tell you today,

Farm rearing contributed more to understanding life than study In recent years, the memoir has become a bestselling genre. Within each of us, especially those who keep a journal, rests the hope that our own life stories will be handed down from generFOR THE ation to generation. We want to deliver the truth as we see RECORD it and to keep our memory BY PAM alive. A couple of Saturdays ago, ROBINSON my New Harmony friend, Jessica Thompson, and I wrote on a topic sure to challenge anyone who wants to be the stuff of legends—at least in their own families. We imagined ourselves at 90 years old telling our life story to a five-year old. Talking to a kindergartner kept us honest and clear. After all, young children ask to hear all the details in plain language. Jessica finished a complete piece that she can go back and rework with more scenes from childhood. On the other hand, I completed a vignette of my early years, a pattern that will continue as I add sections to cover my life span. Although we handled the topic in different ways, both of us focused on how our rural Kentucky environments shaped us. We agreed growing up on a farm brought us priceless blessing our counterparts in town didn’t receive. The town kids may have learned street smarts, but we farm kids were tutored by Mother Nature herself. We witnessed birth and death in the life cycle of farm animals. From our work with planting and harvest, we knew the grocer’s secrets for always having

canned goods on the store shelves. We could appreciate the sweat poured to put food on the table. I am convinced the land itself has as much to do with my personality as my parents’ guidance. Kentucky knobs surrounded our farm. Not as tall as mountains, the knobs still presented enough challenge that few climbed all the way to the top. They formed a ring all around our farm, enclosing us in a circle of green from their thick carpet of cedar trees. I felt safe nestled in the arms of those tall, lush hills. We couldn’t see beyond the trees, so I learned to like my little circle in the world. Even today, I don’t need to travel far from home to find joy and refreshment in my surroundings. I enjoy looking at my friends’ photos and videos of their travels abroad or across county. A color postcard from Amalfi and a container of healing dirt from Chimayo Church set on my desk at home. I know, however, I would never brave the miles to Italy or even to New Mexico. I am happy with the shelter of my back yard. Perhaps those born in the flat Indiana farm lands have gained expansive vision, the wisdom to plan ahead and to keep a heart as open as the wide blue sky. No doubt, the land here contributes to Hoosier character as much as the Kentucky knobs nurtured mine. I recommend a look back in time and place to everyone. The discoveries are well worth the time.

Guest Editorial

By Wendy McNamara

On Thursday of last week, Governor Daniels signed one of four key economic development bills into law. One of those bills, House Enrolled Act 1004, was a bill which I co-authored. This bill represents a significant step toward making our government’s spending more transparent and spurring economic growth. Indiana is already a leader in the nation in providing effective government transparency to its citizens and was recently recognized for those efforts. The US Public Interest Research Groups rated Indiana’s transparency portal the third best in the country with a grade of “A-.” The transparency website was launched in the fall of 2010 by State Auditor Tim Berry and was recognized for offering a userfriendly system of information on payments to specific vendors and expenses incurred over a particular period of time, in specific geographic areas, by specific government agencies or of certain dollar amounts. We are on the right track as a state, but House Bill 1004 pushes us to become even more transparent by providing the framework for Indiana to move toward being the most transparent state, from state government all the way down to the local level. The bill requires detailed information be posted about budgets and expenditures from state agencies, local governments, educational institutions, as well as information on property owned by the state. Hoosiers have a right to know how their tax dollars are being spent. Opening the

books will drive more efficient spending and increase accountability. In addition to providing transparency on how funds are spent the bill works to drive an increase in revenues collected. Finding ways to foster economic development was one of the top goals this session for House Republicans. One way we accomplished that goal is by lowering the corporate tax rate. Currently, Indiana’s corporate tax rate is 8.5 percent, making us the tenth highest in the nation. Often, the “sticker shock” of 8.5 percent immediately shuts down discussions with employers or simply deters businesses from taking a second look. By lowering the Corporate Income Tax to 6.5 percent Indiana will become even more desirable to businesses looking to relocate or expand. As many states are raising taxes and dealing with out of control spending, Indiana continues to maintain fiscal integrity and companies are beginning to see the appeal of Indiana. A lower corporate tax rate will be yet another selling point when vying for businesses. In addition to lowering the corporate tax rate, the bill encourages investment in new companies by increasing access to start-up capital. The bill enhances the Venture Investment Tax Credit by increasing the maximum for a business from $500K to $1M annually. I was immensely pleased to see the Governor sign onto this bill and to know that Indiana will be a leader in the nation by being one of the most pro-transparency and probusiness states.

Intern Editorial

By Holly Heerdink

When I began my internship at the Posey County News in May, I had everything figured out, or at least I thought I did. I knew I would be graduating from Indiana University in 2013 with degrees in journalism and political science, and I was sure broadcast journalism was the field where I belonged. I enjoyed shooting and editing video, and my previous internship at Fox 7 in Evansville had been a great experience. But as soon as I started writing my first few articles, my certainty began to fade. I have always considered myself a writer. Poetry, short stories, articles, even books, you name it, I’ve either written it or I’m working on it. With print journalism, I get to reconnect to my passion. Although broadcast journalists do their fair share of writing, they also rely heavily on video, and they are instructed to write for the ear. Anything they air must be brief and easily understandable when heard once. In print, I can use pictures to help readers visualize a scene, but ultimately, I use words to create the image for them. Needless to say, I will have a difficult decision to make when I finish college, but I

Rokita: Arrest Example of Need for Entitlement Reform Rep. Todd Rokita (IN-4) released the following statement today regarding the illegal immigrants arrested for criminal trespass Monday at the Statehouse: “The arrest of illegal immigrants this week at the Statehouse protesting legislation signed by Gov. Daniels to punish employers for knowingly hiring illegal immigrants and to deny illegal immigrants in-state tuition at Indiana’s college and universities is deeply concerning, but not just because U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement bureaucrats are turning a blind eye to these lawbreakers.” One of the illegal immigrants arrested told reporters the protest was “absolutely” worth the arrest because the legislation Gov. Daniels signed this week will make it harder for them to find jobs and attend college.

If a 14.3 trillion dollar national debt isn’t a big enough wake-up call that we need to make dramatic spending cuts, reform entitlement programs and put an end to our entitlement culture, the fact that now even illegal immigrants feel entitled to jobs and public services certainly is. Being able to immigrate to this great country is a blessing that we take for granted a lot of times, but everyone must do it legally and seek to contribute to our society. I find it disgraceful that at a time Hoosiers are struggling to find jobs and there aren’t enough spots available in colleges and universities for worthy citizens, illegal immigrants who are lucky to be here in the first place—and shouldn’t be— feel so entitled to a job or a government service that they are protesting and breaking our laws.

Gavel Gamut’s “Just like us” If you read Justices of the Indiana Supreme Court, you will have no difficulty appreciating how similar those men, all but one of them have been men, are to the rest of us. They are sometimes good, sometimes not, sometimes brave, sometimes cowardly, sometimes smart, sometimes insane. If fact, Stephan Stevens from Madison died in an insane asylum. Stevens was on the court 1831 –1836 after he had been shot in the head at the Battle of New Orleans on January 8, 1815. Stevens was brave physically and morally. He served in battle and he stood, often almost alone, against denial of equal rights to Negroes. As an attorney he took on several black clients and their unpopular positions. He ran for governor of Indiana on an abolitionist platform in 1846; he lost badly. He served in both the Indiana House and Senate and amassed a considerable fortune, but lost it all investing in a failed railroad venture. He died destitute and alone in the Indiana Hospital for

the Insane. Stevens often said, “ever since the top of my head was cut off (1815) my memory is not as good


as it used to be.” James A. Emmert (1947 – 1959) was an unabashedly partisan member of the court. He did not hesitate to publicly bash Democratic opponents and positions. He gleefully called for war in the Middle East over the Suez Canal in 1956 because he thought it would help Dwight Eisenhower and the Republican Party win in the next election. Emmert was a strong and public advocate for the right of Indiana’s citizens to carry concealed weapons without a permit. His position was that both the U.S. and Indiana constitutions were the only “permit” needed. Today the Indiana Com-

mission on Judicial Qualifications prohibits judges from partisan politics and taking public positions on such issues as abortion and gun control. It is up to you, Gentle Reader, whether you believe Emmert’s approach or today’s is more in the public’s interest. Another interesting aspect of Emmert’s career that would get him removed as a judge in today’s climate were his personal habits on the court. He slept overnight on the couch in his chambers every Monday through Friday so he did not have to drive back to Shelbyville. And he invited numerous friends and persons who could help him politically to have bourbon with him in his court chambers. Often Emmert would be seen walking the hallways of the Indiana Supreme Court in his bathrobe. Donald Mote served on the court 1967 – 1968. He was elected even though he was suffering from cancer. Upon joining the court he worked diligently, even writing opinions from his

hospital bed. He died after less than one year on the court. David Meriwether Lewis served with Mote on the court. Lewis was a direct descendant of Meriwether Lewis of Lewis and Clark fame. As a trial attorney he employed tactics that might get him disciplined today. Once he had a police baton under his suit coat just before he was to argue that his client, a policeman, did not abuse a person claiming police brutality. Without telling the trial judge or the opposing lawyer, Lewis pulled the baton out and destroyed a portion of the jury box. He told the jury if the policeman had hit the plaintiff as claimed, the plaintiff’s head would have burst just as the jury railing did. As you can tell, I find these sometimes nutty, sometimes courageous judges always interesting. If you want to read about these people who affect your life in many significant ways, you can find the book at the library. ASSISTANT EDITOR, MV OFFICE PAM ROBINSON

am grateful to discover this uncertainty now and not later. In addition to challenging my future plans, this internship has been full of pleasant surprises. I have never considered myself to be a photographer, but I have taken several pictures this summer for the different articles I have written. I know I have a long way to go, but I am improving every day. I have also had the opportunity to meet some amazing people like Bernard Goebel, Barbara McConnell and Sen. Dan Coats. I work with fun, interesting people who are making my internship memorable and useful. However, if I expected anything from my internship, I expected Posey County residents to form the loving, supportive community that has been a part of my life since I was born. Of course, this expectation was fulfilled. Everyone, thank you for reading. I have enjoyed my work here so far, and I’m looking forward to the remainder of the summer.

We would also like to thank Aaron and Andrew Wilson for their help with the fundraising. RGRG has a goal to air condition the old gym. Last year $6,000 was raised and this year $10,000 was pledged at the banquet which was awesome. However, we are still short $10,000 which we will try to raise at next year’s alumni banquet. Anyone who has pledged but not yet paid may send their checks to the following address: RGRG, P.O. Box 162, New Harmony, IN 47631. Anyone who did not pledge may still help out at any time by sending a check to the above address. The air conditioning is going to be put in this year so the banquet and dance can be moved into the old gym for next year’s centennial celebration. Donations are tax deductible and any donation is graciously accepted for this good cause.

Thanks to you it works for all of us The United Way of Posey County is very important to our communities. Funds from United Way have helped New Harmony operate a food pantry serving many families and have also been used to assist Posey County families with utilities and rent. Thank you to all who help support United Way.

Koester, from Page 1A Koester is a life-long Posey County resident. “We are very proud to have so many qualified candidates and we are happy to select her as the next Dean of Students at North Posey,” Superintendent Dr. Todd Camp stated. Koester will assist in conducting interviews for a number of open teaching positions, including the classroom she just left. The advent of full-day kindergarten and pre-school opens a few opportunities at the elementary level. A precise number of teachers who will be hired have not been finalized as open enrollment for the new pre-school program continues. Camp stated he anticipates needing one new kindergarten teacher, two pre-school teachers, two high school English teachers as well as one math and one art teacher at the high school. Board members also approved hiring Andy Hines as the new high school boys’ soccer coach for the upcoming 2011 season while Scott Butrum was hired as the new girls’ soccer coach.

Featured Animal of The Posey County Humane Society

Popsicle is a female front declawed DSH cat. She is spayed and up to date on all her shots. The Posey Humane Society is still full to the brim and unable to accept new animals until we find homes for the ones we are currently housing. Now is a great time to take advantage of the Passion for Pets sale on all animals that are already spayed or neutered. Call 838-3211 to arrange a time to look at your future pet. General public hours are Friday noon - 6:00 pm and Saturday 10:00 am - 6:00 pm.

Classic Baked Chicken

South Terrace rewarded for efforts Excited chatter filled the gym at South Terrace Elementary School on Monday as students waited to present a $1,590.70 check to Riley Hospital. This year South Terrace was named a Miracle School, a title reserved for schools that raise at least $1 for every enrolled student. “I think that’s the most we’ve ever raised,” Principal Kelly Carlton said. “I’m extremely proud of the kids. They tried so hard to raise money.” The Student Council headed fundraising efforts by selling suckers, sponsoring spirit days and holding a movie night. Isaac Mayer, a student council representative, presented the check to Ben Cohen, a Kids Caring and Sharing Coordinator for Riley Hospital. “It’s really amazing to see the kids’ passion for Riley once they understand the incredible things Riley does for their peers,” Cohen said. “For me, it’s always nice to come down and see the kids who raised the money and let them know how much it means to us.”

Virtual Academy Registration New Harmony School will once again be partnering with Indiana Virtual Academy for summer school opportunities for credit recovery.

INGREDIENTS • 3 to 4 lb chicken, cut into 8 parts (2 breasts, 2 thighs, 2 legs, 2 wings) excluding the back • Olive oil • Salt and freshly ground pepper • 1/2 cup of chicken stock* or white wine for the gravy (optional) METHOD 1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Rinse chicken pieces in water and pat dry with paper towels. Coat the bottom of a roasting pan with olive oil. Rub some olive oil over all of the chicken pieces in the roasting pan. Sprinkle both sides of the chicken pieces with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Arrange the pieces skin-side up in the roasting pan so the largest pieces are in the center (the breasts) and there is a little room between pieces so they aren’t crowded in the pan. 2. Cook for 30 minutes at 400°F. Then lower the heat to 350°F and cook for 10-30 minutes more (approximately 14 to 15 minutes per pound total cooking time) until juices run clear (not pink) when poked with a sharp knife or the internal temperature of the chicken breasts is 165°F and the thighs 170°. If your chicken pieces aren’t browning to your satisfaction, you can put them under the broiler for the last 5 minutes of cooking, until browned sufficiently. 3. Remove roasting pan from oven. Remove chicken from roasting pan to a serving plate. Tent with aluminum foil and let rest for 5 to 10 minutes before serving. 4. To make gravy for the chicken, take the roasting pan with its drippings and place on a medium setting on the stovetop. Use a metal spatula to scrape up the drippings stuck to the bottom of the pan. Add a quarter cup of white wine or chicken stock* to the pan to help deglaze the drippings from the pan. 5. Pour the wine/stock and dripping mixture into a small saucepan and heat on medium high to reduce to desired thickness. 6. *While the chicken pieces are baking, if you bought a whole chicken that was then cut into pieces, you may have the back, the neck, and some gizzard pieces to use for making chicken stock. You can chop up the back a little, put it and the neck and gizzards (not the liver) into a small saucepan, barely cover with water, bring to a simmer, cook while the chicken is cooking. When the chicken in the oven is done cooking, use the stock from simmering the extra pieces to make the gravy. Serve with steamed rice, mashed potatoes, or Spanish rice. • Yield: Serves 4.

COMMUNITY C OM MM MUNITY MV farmers’ market to open in new location

Poseyville Carnegie summer program now going

The Mt. Vernon Farmers’ Market will open for its third year on Tuesday, June 14 at a new location this year. “Thanks to the generous support of the property’s owners, we will have the Mt. Vernon Farmers’ Market on 4th Street, in the parking lot located between McDonald’s Restaurant and Domino’s Pizza this year,” says Jon Neufelder, Extension Educator for Purdue Extension, who also serves as the market master. “The Mt. Vernon Farmers’ Market will be open every Tuesday through August at this location from 2 until 5 p.m., or until the produce runs out. With the wet spring we’ve had this year, gardens didn’t get off to as early of a start as what we

Readers of all ages will travel the globe this summer as Poseyville Carnegie Public Library presents “One World, Many Stories” during their summer reading program. Children will explore places from Oceania to Russia through stories, crafts, music, dance, and other activities. Adults are invited to participate in “NoveI Destinations”. The 2011 Summer Reading Program is open to all ages, preschool through adult, with programs, prize drawings, story hours, and more. Families are invited to join the Read-to-Me portion of the program. Registration for the summer reading program begins on June 4. For more information, call the library at 812874-3418 or visit us on Facebook at Poseyville Carnegie Public Library.

would have liked, but we expect vendors will have some fresh, locally grown produce to sell. We’re hoping fresh, locally grown produce available will ranged from new red potatoes, green beans, broccoli, cabbage, greens (turnip and radish), onions, as well as, radishes, rhubarb, squash, turnips and zucchini. As the spring and summer progresses, we expect more of the same, as well as other fruits and vegetables as they come into season,” said Neufelder. “Since we only allow locally grown produce (grown in surrounding counties in Indiana, Illinois and Kentucky) at our market, people are going to have to be patient in waiting for ripe, red tomatoes, as they still are probably a month or so

away yet,” he said. The market is open to vendors who sell locally grown fruits and vegetables as well as assorted other items like baked goods. There also will be some handmade crafts, but the emphasis is on providing fresh, locally grown products for the citizens of Mt. Vernon and the surrounding area.

Vernon Farmers’ Market, visit the Purdue Extension website (under Hot Topics) at: www.extension.purdue. edu/posey/.

sues and challenges of the citizens of Mount Vernon, and he encourages comments to his attention. As part of his commitment to the campaign, he has set a goal of running 630 miles through the streets of Mount Vernon up to the November 8 election day. If you see him in your neighborhood, he encourages you to stop him and give him your thoughts on how we can improve Mount Vernon.

Tucker, from Page 1A day, that the Agreed Order was dismissed in May of 2010. The Sawmill project is completed and we are well on our way to completion of the $14 million dollar Combined Sewer Overflow Project. In order to do this, we went after every funding opportunity there was available to us. We worked hard to put everything together to submit applications to the Office of Community and Rural Affairs and we were one of 12 communities who received Disaster Recovery dollars,” Tucker explained. “We received 50 percent of the cost of the Sawmill project in grant dollars, over one million dollars. When another opportunity became available for dollars, we again worked very hard to put together the best application possible for the remainder of the CSO project and once again we were awarded 50 percent of the remaining CSO project cost. So the bottom line is that even though the federal government mandated this, we managed to accomplish it at 50 percent of the cost to residents of Mount Vernon.” Tucker said another issue he faced was the riverfront project and costs associated with it. “The City had received a $500,000 award through the Indiana Department of Transportation. However; the cost of the project that was designed was in excess of a million

dollars. There was absolutely no way the city could come up with their local match dollars and an additional $500,000 to complete the project,” Tucker said. Tucker said that through hard work and additional funding through INDOT, the city received another $500,000 award for a total of $1 million. But Tucker is quick to point out that this project is only the first phase of the Riverfront Revitalization. “We applied for the Second Phase of the Riverfront Revitalization through the Indiana Department of Transportation. We were excited to receive a $1 million award. This project will include an interactive fountain, a look out, that will allow people to have a wonderful view of the Ohio River, and an amphitheater which will give us a location to have outside entertainment,” Tucker said. “This project was enhanced when we applied for OCRA dollars to complete the silo demolition and received the award. By the end of 2011, we will have a beautiful Riverfront totally revitalized. .” “It will be a destination for all the residents and visitors in Mount Vernon,” Tucker stated. “But we are not stopping with just the riverfront. We will continue to apply for dollars to extend a sidewalk up Main Street, west on Fourth and connect to the Safe Route to School Project that should

be completed by the end of 2011. The next phase will be to connect a trail to the SRTS through Brittlebank Park. We have received over $10,274,000 in federal dollars to go toward much needed projects,” Tucker stated. “That is a lot of money for Mount Vernon to receive in a three-year period. I am very proud that we were able to accomplish this. “As your Mayor, I will make sure we have a return on our investment we can be proud of as I have done these past three

years,” Tucker said. “We will continue to research and utilize any and all state and federal funding options or outside dollars to assist in funding future projects. Leadership requires action, and as your leader here in Mount Vernon I think I have demonstrated that I will take that action. Leadership means not only doing things right but doing things for the right reason. You, the citizens of Mount Vernon, are the right reason. It will take all of us to continue to move Mount Vernon forward.”

Interest high in New Harmony Fire Station as 22 bids opened By Pam Robinson The New Harmony Town Council met in special session on Tuesday, May 31, to open bids for construction of New Harmony’s new fire and emergency medical services station. A standingroom-only crowd squeezed into Town Hall for the proceedings two watch the progress unfold. Town President David Campbell unsealed 22 packets from tri-state contractors and passed them for reading to Bud Erny of Erny & Associates in Vincennes,

project architect. Two of the packets did not contain the required documents and therefore were disqualified without a reading. Bidders were allowed to submit a combined bid for general construction, mechanical and electrical work or to submit a bid on one part of the project. Bids were taken under advisement. The bid award will be announced at another special meeting of the New Harmony Town Council on Tuesday, June 7, at 4 p.m. in Town Hall.

Five year celebration for Bridges of Hope To celebrate the five years of successful Fair Trade sales with Bridges of Hope at the Mount Vernon First United Methodist Church, Elsie Rotich and Sally( Keck )Shapiro were invited to share their association and experiences with the IMANI Project in Kenya, Africa. The IMANI Project is an outreach program of the IU Medical Global Health program to assist the HIV/AIDS patients in Kenya. Elsie Rotich is the North American Sales Manager and Community Outreach Coordinator of the IMANI Project and Sally and her husband have made several trips to Kenya to visit and assist the project. Many of the items made at the IMANI workshops are available for purchase on the Bridges of Hope ‘cart.’ It was exciting to see firsthand pictures of the artisans in their workshops and hear stories of their successes in overcoming the HIV/AIDS stigma by returning to good

health and rebuilding their lives through economic security. The Bridges of Hope team was happy that they were able to financially assist the mission team that left First Church for Zimbabwe on May 27. Mike and Teresa Rynkiewich, Betty Hart, Alice and Terri Kendall will spend two weeks with Janine Roberts, a missionary in an HIV/AIDS orphanage/community in Zimbabwe. BOH was able, through successful sales, to provide $2500 to the team’s travel expenses, plus $200 to specifically buy and bring back locally made craft items to offer for sale on the BOH gift cart and $400 to help buy materials for the projects that Janine pointed out needed repair: replace glass in windows, created hedge rows to provide privacy, and/or repair pipes in the plumbing but the ZimTeam was also looking forward to holding babies, reading books,

Residents of Gibson, Posey and Vanderburgh counties with property damaged by recent storms should contact the Indiana Department of Homeland Security (IDHS) as soon as possible, State Sen. Jim Tomes said today. Tomes (R-Wadesville) said Hoosiers may visit and click “April 18, 2011 and Continuing - Wind and Flooding” to create a damage assessment report for the Wednesday, May 25, and Thursday, May 26, storms. This information will be used by state officials for initial evaluation and application for federal assistance. “There are certain criteria our state must meet before officials may request a disaster declaration from the president,” Tomes said. “Reporting damage helps to build a case for the federal dollars Indiana needs due to the recent excessive rain and strong storms.” IDHS Executive Director Joe Wainscott said that damage caused by severe weather must be reported quickly. “The faster we can assess the situation, the better, especially if the determination is to pursue federal assistance,” Wainscott said. “Even if you aren’t intending to apply for assistance, your report of uninsured damage will help the state and your neighbors in assessing the case to request federal assistance.” IDHS officials encourage individuals without Internet access to contact a friend, family member or neighbor for assistance or visit a library or community center with access. If none of those options are available, Hoosiers

may also contact their county emergency management agency to report damage: • Gibson County, 812-386-9630; • Posey County, 812-838-1333; and • Vanderburgh County, 812-435-6020. Tomes said he’s been discussing possible ways to fast track federal help to Southern Indiana Hoosiers with officials in Governor Mitch Daniel’s office, but there seems to be no channel to expedite the process. “You simply can’t forgo formalities when applying for federal dollars,” Tomes said. “That’s why I’ve also been working locally with township trustees and area officials. They know the needs of their communities best and I encourage residents to contact them with questions and concerns relating to the recent storms.” Tomes added that he has also worked with the Southwestern Indiana Chapter of American Red Cross, which has on-call volunteers who respond 24 hours a day to meet the psychological and physical needs of local disaster victims. “Our local Red Cross provides food, shelter, medical care and counseling to those who need it after storms cause substantial damage,” Tomes said. To contact the Southwestern Indiana Red Cross Chapter, call 812-471-7200, email or visit 29 S. Stockwell Road, Evansville. Tomes said he will continue to work with state officials and volunteers to get Southwestern Indiana Hoosiers the help they need.

Sermon of the Week: Pentecost, the birth of the church By: Pastor Al Schmitz Pentecost 5-23-10 Acts 2:1-14 We celebrate the birth of Jesus and all the world pauses to celebrate Christmas with us. We celebrate His resurrection, and most of the world recognizes Easter as a very special day on the calendar. But this Sunday is Pentecost, and hardly anyone realizes it. Yet, this day is important, because Pentecost is the birthday of the Church, and God has given us the wonderful opportunity of being a part of it. It is in the 2nd chapter of the Book of Acts that we read about the beginning of the Church. "When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them" "Now there were staying in Jerusalem God-fearing Jews from every nation under heaven. When they heard this sound, a crowd came together in bewilderment, because each one heard them speaking in his own language. . . . Amazed and perplexed, they asked one another, what does this mean?’ Some, however, made fun of them and said, `They have had too much wine” It’s interesting that some of the people who were passing by reached

the conclusion that the apostles were drunk, because it tells us something of the spirit of excitement and joy that prevailed on that day. I like the story about 3 prospectors who found a rich vein of gold in California during the gold rush days. They realized what a great discovery they had, and decided, "We’ve a really good thing going here as long as no one else finds out about it." So they each took a vow to keep it secret. Then they headed for town to file their claims and get the equipment necessary to mine the gold. True to their vows, they didn’t say a word to anybody. They filed their claim, bought the equipment, and headed back to their mine. But when they did, a crowd of people followed them. And the reason was because the expression on their faces had given them away. Their faces were aglow in anticipation of the wealth that soon would be theirs. People knew that they must have found something very special. So a crowd followed them out of town. . A famous motivational speaker was once asked about his most difficult speech. He answered, "Well, it was when I was asked to speak at a national convention of undertakers. My topic was to explain to them how to look sad during a $10,000 funeral." You see, when there is joy inside, it’s awfully hard to keep it from showing. But Pentecost says that the early

Christians discovered joy unspeakable in the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ. Again and again, Paul writes, "Rejoice in the Lord. Rejoice in the Lord always and again I say, Rejoice!" Pentecost was a once-in-history event, when the Church was born. So let me share with you some ideas of” Pentecost." First, we see that the Church was created by God. The Church is immortal. From the beginning of time, before the foundation of the world, God had in His mind the Church. And He promised that even the gates of Hades would not prevail against it. Sometimes we act as if we think that the Church was started by the early Christians; It didn’t happen that way! Did you hear what the Word said? It said, "Suddenly, a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from. . ." Where? "From heaven." God started the Church! God created the Church. God brought the Church into being, and it is His Church, not ours. It is essential for us to realize that. The Church may never be the most popular institution in the world, because the Church goes counter to popular culture. You see, God wants the Church to stand for the truth, to be unshakable in our presentation of the Gospel, because the Church belongs to God. It is His Church, not ours. Secondly, we see that the purpose of the Church is to communicate the love of God to a lost and dying

world. The theme of Pentecost, believe it or not, is communication. It is really a shame that the whole idea of speaking in tongues has become such a controversial issue. When you read... about Pentecost, the truth that comes to the surface is that God gave the gift of tongues to the apostles for one purpose, and that was for the purpose of communication. They had a problem with communication because people had come from many different nations. And when you read the long list of nations, you realize that a language barrier existed. Because God wanted each of them to hear the message in his own language, He performed a miracle, and He gave the apostles the gift of tongues so that they could communicate His message. You see, when you and I are saved by the blood of Jesus, and added to His family, then God expects us to do the best we can to communicate that message to a lost and dying world. That is the purpose of the Church. Thirdly, the goal of the Church is to establish a fellowship that is unique. Can’t you see these early Christians when they first hear the good news about Jesus? On the Day of Pentecost there are 3,000 new converts, and they suddenly share something that has never been shared before. All of them know that they are guilty, that they have crucified Christ with their sins. But now they have repented of their sins. They’ve been

baptized. They’ve been redeemed, & they’ve been given the gift of the Holy Spirit. Suddenly, they are part of a new society. Now they’re part of a new fellowship where they can share things about themselves with others, and know that they’ll listen and be compassionate and kind. Here were 3,000 changed people that God had made different and new. They were "born again." No wonder their number quickly grew to 5,000, and then into multitudes as the Church spread throughout Jerusalem. More and more people were attracted to them. It was different from anything else in the entire world. The Church must always be that. Most institutions are only interested in what they can get from you, but the Church wants to give. Many will take advantage of you, but the Church is where you can come and hear the truth, and be ministered to, and needs will be met in your life. The world changed after Pentecost because of the Church’s influence on that world. And it ought to be the same today. If you’re lonely, or tired, or feel taken advantage of, then know that within the walls of the Church are people just like you. So we can come without pretending. We can just be ourselves with all of our blemishes and scrapes and scratches, and find love and acceptance, because that is what the Church is to be, the family of God.

Posey Community Foundation taking women’s orgainzation nominations The Women’s Fund of Posey County is about strong, caring, and focused women determined to make a difference in the lives of our community’s women and children. At its heart, the Women’s Fund is about women helping women. The Women’s Fund is used to make yearly grants supporting a variety of resources serving women of all ages and children under the age of 18, such as programs that prevent domestic violence, secure family-supporting jobs, promote health and education and perhaps most importantly, develop confidence. Last year, the fund awarded grants to Girl power programs at West/Farmersville schools; St. Peter’s United Methodist Church to purchase supplies to provide affordable women’s health screenings; to help host five workshops, with two Girls Scout troupes in Posey County, that focus on leadership, women in leadership,

and career opportunities; to provide Willow tree of Posey County/Domestic Violence Task Force funding to print a safety planning booklet and business card with important phone numbers along with purchasing promotional materials such as key chains, magnets, and lip balm; and West Elementary School received a grant to purchase American Girl series books for each of the three third grade classrooms. A portion of the funds will also be used to purchase craft supplies and snacks for four after school sessions and two DVDs that correlate with the book series. The Foundation is pleased to announce that it is accepting grant proposals from nonprofit organizations serving Posey County which will support the Women’s Fund mission: to give opportunity, encouragement, knowledge and hope to our community’s women and children. Proposals are sought for charitable

projects and activities that address needs and opportunities in health, human services, arts and culture, education, community development, and other areas that would improve the quality of life for women and children in Posey County. Only those agencies or organizations which are tax exempt under sections 501 (c) (3) and 509 (a) of the Internal Revenue Code are eligible to apply for approximately $3300 available to grant. Multiple grants will be awarded from the total amount. Proposals must be postmarked or delivered to the Foundation office in the Old National Bank Building at 402 Main Street, in Mount Vernon by 4 p.m. on July 5, 2011. Funding guidelines and proposal instructions may be obtained at the Foundation office or by visiting our website at www. If you would like more information on

United Way offers Bridges Out of Poverty Training The United Way of Posey County is pleased to offer the Bridges Out of Poverty training, designed to give participants key lessons in dealing with individuals from poverty. The training will be Monday, June 27, 2011, from 5 to 7 p.m. at Wesley Hall, 601 Main Street, Mount Vernon, Indiana. The presenter is Annette C. Lawler, M.S., CFCS, who is the County Extension Director and an Extension Educator for the Purdue University Cooperative Extension Service in Harrison County, Indiana. The Bridges Out of Poverty training reaches out to the providers and businesses

whose daily work connects them with the lives of people in poverty. If your business, agency, or organization works with people living in poverty, only a deeper understanding of their challenges and strengths will help you partner with them to create opportunities for success. Attendance is open to everyone at no charge, but registration is required for all participants because refreshments will be provided. The deadline for registration is June 24. Call the United Way of Posey County at 8383637 or email to uwposey@ with any questions and to register for the

training. This program builds a new consciousness of economic diversity and presents the

interlocking nature of the problems faced by people in poverty and communities as a whole.

Bake sale to benefit Livestock Building Fund Hoosier Boosters 4-H Club will have a bake sale Saturday, June 11, in front of Harold’s restaurant at 11 West Main St. in Poseyville to benefit the Livestock Show Arena and Horse Barn at the 4-H Fairgrounds. The sale will take place from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. The Posey County 4-H Fair Association, Inc. started the plans for the replacement of the current Livestock Show Arena and Horse Barn at the 4-H Fairgrounds last fall. Buildings now used for this purpose are over 50 years old and are badly in need of renovation. The goal is to replace and improve the existing facilities, while improving safety for animals and exhibitors, and improve flow of livestock from their pens to the show arena. The total cost of the project is $185,000 with all contributions being placed in a special account set up for that purpose.

Attendance increases at Evansville Philharmonic concerts After announcing a new business philosophy in March of 2010, overall ticket sales for the Evansville Philharmonic Orchestra’s “Out of This World” 2010-2011 season rose 20 percent . While other orchestras are seeing their audiences decline or are filing for bankruptcy, the Evansville Philharmonic Orchestra became one of the first orchestras in the country to adopt a new business model that appears to be working well. Last year, the Evansville Philharmonic announced it was changing the way it was doing business. The Philharmonic understood one of the barriers preventing people from experiencing the orchestra was cost. The organization removed that barrier by embracing a new philosophy regarding ticket prices. “On one hand we are embracing a new philosophy, on the other we are returning to the most basic of business principles: Offer a great product at a fair and reasonable price,” says Glenn Roberts, executive director of the Evansville Philharmonic Orchestra. During the 20092010 season, only 8 percent of the hall was less than $25. Now 70 percent of seats in the hall are $15, $20, or $25. The Philharmonic eliminated facility fees, service fees and premium prices for its full series subscribers. It also offered, and continues to offer, a money-back guarantee for new subscribers and a 50 percent discount on Grand and Classics series subscriptions for full-time students and children. The Philharmonic started a new program called club2030, which allows members ages 18-39 to purchase best seats available for just $10 per ticket. The membership of club2030 has grown to more than 350 members. Student Rush tickets were also lowered to $8

for full-time students and children 12 and under. It was the Philharmonic’s hope these measures would help the orchestra be more accessible to the public it serves and thus, more of the Tri-State community would become involved in its orchestra. Based on the numbers, that hope is becoming reality. The Evansville Philharmonic increased its number of season ticket holders, or subscribers, for the first time in over a decade. The organization had hoped to grow its subscription base by four percent in 2010-2011. It ended the season surpassing that goal and nearly doubling it with a surprising growth of over seven percent. Overall ticket sales increased 20 percent over last season. That translates to an average of 212 more ticket buyers per performance than last season. Also, the number of season ticket holders who have become donors increased by 15 percent. Donations to the Philharmonic Fund, the orchestra’s major annual fundraising campaign representing primarily individual donations, increased by 12 percent from $265,000 to $300,000. Still, the orchestra is not without its challenges. While the audience is growing, the

ticket revenue decreased by 7 percent , which the Philharmonic expected. Corporate support is still a volatile area as businesses continue to struggle in the current economy. Bequests in 2010-2011 were down and the Philharmonic’s two major fundraising events during the season fell short of budgeted revenue. So, the orchestra, like virtually all non-profits, has had to tighten its belt even more through continuing a wage freeze for its musicians for the third year in a row, a 3 percent pay cut for its administrative staff, a 5 percent pay cut for its executive staff, and other expense cuts. Despite the belt-tightening, the Philharmonic believes the new business model is doing exactly what it should: growing the audience and increasing individual donations. “We’re reaching more people, touching more lives,” says Carrie Marrett, director of marketing for the Philharmonic. “The numbers clearly illustrate our community is showing increasing support of our efforts. That’s strong and encouraging evidence we’re doing the right thing.” Roberts adds, “We believe that, in the long term, people will give more financial support to the organization when

Homesless Shelter still needs help The Mount Vernon Homeless Shelter offers a hand up not a hand out to families in Posey County. Any family that has children and at least one adult working in the household can be eligible and apply to enter the shelter at the Black Township Trustee Office .The economy is creating sad situations for families in the community. If there is an organization of any kind looking for a service project, the Mount Vernon Homeless Shelter is in dire need of the following items; laundry detergent, fabric softener, paper towels, shampoo, toilet paper, deodorant, feminine products, any type of cleaning supplies, along with razors, dish soap, toothbrushes and toothpaste. Any products can be dropped off at the Black Township Trustee Office at 5773 Industrial Road in Mount Vernon, Indiana, (838-3851) or at St. Matthew’s Church Office at 421 Mulberry Street in Mount Vernon, Monday thru Thursday from 8:30 until 4 p.m.

they give from the heart than through paying more for the price of a concert ticket.” Roberts continues, “I believe that the successful orchestra of the twenty-first century will be perceived not as a luxury item, but a basic commodity to be enjoyed by all.” Season tickets for the 2011-2012 “Celebrate the American Spirit” season are on sale now. The new season brochure can be downloaded at For more information call 425 – 5050.

Wildcat bats let them down against Patriots in Regional By Steve Joos Except for a few bad innings, the Mount Vernon baseball team got good pitching and good defense in their Class 3A Regional game at Huntingburg. The offense was another story. After tearing up the Evansville Sectional field, scoring 36 runs enroute to that championship, the Mount Vernon bats went cold on a hot day in Huntingburg as the Wildcats were eliminated by the Heritage Hills Patriots 5-1. “They got us for four runs on four hits in the second inning,” coach Paul Quinzer said. “A couple of big hits by them, but we had the bases loaded, men on second and third, first and second not outs. They caught the breaks and we didn’t catch the breaks. What can I say? Their pitchers just set us down.” Heritage Hills’ Ty Simpson stifled the Cats on three hits in five innings before giving way to Wes Ward after the first two Mount Vernon batters reached base in

the bottom of the sixth. The two Patriot hurlers tossed a combined five-hitter. “In the first three innings, he (Simpson) had six strikeouts,” Quinzer explained. “So, that was kind of nice. I wished we would have swung the bat and put the ball in play to make them make the plays, which would have been better than striking out. That’s one thing we wished we have done differently.” Being unable to keep the Patriots off the scoreboard in the top of the second may have been another. The first four Heritage Hills batters in the top of the second reached base and each one came around to score. Trent Simpson (who was at the plate when Aaron choate gunned down Drew Rosbottom on an attempted steal to end to Patriot first) singled to lead off the second and promptly came around on a triple by Tirey Birch. Nick Perkins singled home Birch and Jason Carey recorded the first out on a tapper to third. Adam Price

singled in two more runs to close out the scoring for the Patriots. Those were all the runs Heritage Hills would need, although Rosbottom doubled in a run in the top of the seventh. The Wildcats had their chances, but just couldn’t get the big hit when it was needed. While Simpson was fanning the Wildcats in the first three frames, Troy Paris singled in the bottom of the first. He was stranded when Bo Harris fanned to end the first. He then scored the Wildcats’ only run of the day after drawing a leadoff walk in the bottom of the fourth. The Wildcat hurler stole second and went to third on a throwing error before crossing the plate on a ground out by Aaron Roberts. But other than that, the Cats just couldn’t get any breaks as they left eight men on base. Jevin Redman walked in the bottom of the third, but was left on base, as were Choate and pinch runner Trevor Veeck in the fifth. Heritage Hills made some strong plays defensively, choking two Mount Vernon rallies with double plays while making three running stabs on deep fly balls by Roberts and Choate. “We talked about coming up here and not swinging the sticks,” Quinzer said. “That’s exactly what we did.” The loss ended Mount Vernon’s season at 18-8. Not bad, but after winning the Sectionals, the Cats wanted a little more. “It was a good season, we feel fortunate,” Quinzer

Jared Baehl is honored as UE Scholar Athlete Former North Posey baseball standout Jared Baehl is one of two University of Evansville Purple Aces who have earned Missouri Valley Conference Scholar Athlete first team honors. A senior on the Purple Aces, Baehl was named to the Capital One Academic All-District Team as well after carrying a 3.32 cumulative grade-point average in management this season. The Poseyville native hit .300 with 15 doubles, a team-high six triples, a home run and 30 runs batted in for the Aces this season. Baehl’s double, RBI and hit totals (61) were all fourth on the team, while he was third on the squad with 91 total bases. He had nine multi RBI and 18 multi-hit games this season, with three blows in the Aces’ Valley tournament opener against Wichita State and collected two hits and drove in three runs against both Indiana State and Creighton in the tourney. Baehl’s lone dinger of the campaign came against Arkansas State and he was a home run shy of the cycle in a game against St. Louis. UE was 28-25 this season, with a 7-13 mark in the Valley. Jared is the son of Mike and Judy Baehl of Poseyville.

They boys grew and they all got better.” Paris kept the Patriots mixed up except for the second binning, while Hank Dausmann pitched well despite yielding Rosbottom’s double in the seventh, the

had beaten the Cats in the eleventh inning of a contest where Mount Vernon had a number of chances to score, but didn’t. Unfortunately for the Wildcats, history repeated itself at Huntingburg, as well.

Successful Rappite season comes to close By Stevee Joos It was a rough day for the New Harmony baseball team in last week’s Class 1A Sectional game at Tecumseh—and then the other team erupted for a 10-run inning. The Wood memorial Trojans took advantage of seven Rappite errors and put away New Harmony in five innings 21-4 to in the Class 1A Tecumseh Secitonal on Memorial Day. The Rappites had more errors than hits (five) and fell behind 11-0 before pushing their first run of the game across the plate in the bottom of the third inning. “We couldn’t overcome key errors,” coach Jim Little said. “When you go into a game with one healthy pitcher and without our best outfielder, we were asking for trouble.” Little had to shuffle his lineup due to the situation and moving those players around that can change the chemistry of the team, he said.

That may have also led to some of the seven errors and may have been one reason why pitcher Andrew McDaniel stayed on the mound despite being roughed up throughout the first three innings. “Wood had some good hits, mixed in with some errors and that can affect anybody,” Little said. “I have been there as a player, being both the pitcher stuck out there when the flood gates open and the player who made the key error to start the flood. I hate it for these kids because we were a much better team than we showed (against Wood Memorial).” It was already 11-1 Trojans when Wood unloaded on New Harmony in the top of the fifth inning. McDaniel took the loss for the Rappites, who checked out of the tournament with a 7-5 record. The Rappites won six of their last eight games and had six players batting over .300 for the season. Little also complimented McDaniel for his efforts on the mound this year.

Excellence marks North Posey Red-Black game By Steve Joos Zach Voegel and Damian Word agreed about something after Saturday’ South Gibson Babe Ruth baseball battle at North Posey. Dylan Wright pitched a great game. Wright went the distance and fanned 11 batters as Voegel’s North Posey Red Babe Ruth team moved into a statistical tie with Word’s Black squad with a 5-3 victory. “Overall, we pitched very well,” Voegel said. “Overall, I thought we played well. We didn’t make any mistakes. Walks and hit batters almost came back to get us, but overall I thought both teams played well, they played hard. It was a pretty good game.” Wright even started the scoring for Red in the third when he walked, stole second and came around on a couple of errors. Beau Cox singled in two runs to cap the uprising. Black tried to mount a comeback, pulling to with a pair of runs in the bottom of the seventh, but they just couldn’t solve Red’s pitcher. “We had 11 strikeouts,” Word said. “Eleven strikeouts out of 21 outs. You’re never going to win many games doing that. We didn’t put the ball in play, we weren’t aggressive, we’d take two strikes and then half-swing at a curve ball. That’s what happens when you strikeout 11 times in a game.” Word credited Wright with most of that. “Dylan pitched great,” he said. “He was working his curve ball for strikes, he was hitting his locations, he’s obviously got a good fastball, but his off-speed stuff was excellent tonight, he just pitched a good game.” Word felt that Christian Jones pitched a good game for Black, but he was the victim of a defensive breakdown in the third inning. Red plated five runs in the

Big Eight scholar athletes named for MV Mount Vernon High School has 15 selections on the Big Eight Conference academic all-conference list for the spring semester. There were four members each selected to the honor list from both the baseball and track teams, including two who were chosen while playing on two difference teams. Representing the Sectional champion diamondmen were Aaron Choate, Peter Fink, Bo Harris and Jason Stemple (also selected from the boys’ basketball team). Academic All-Conference Cats from the track squads were Tim Davis, Chelsea Huber (also named from the girls’ swim team), Jenny Koch (who also represents the girls’ basketball team) and D.A. Wilson. Kyle Duckworth was named from the boys’ swim team, while Carynn Koch joins Koch from the girls’ hoop squad and Andy Henshaw was chosen from the boys’ hoop team, joining Stemple. The Dance Cats also have two Academic All-Conference picks, Diane Hastings and Lane Rusher. Rounding out the Mount Vernon contingent are Ashley Knight (girls’ tennis) and Blake Marshall (wrestling). In order to make the team, a student-athlete must be a senior with a semester grade-point average of 3.5 or higher.

third, aided in part by three Black errors. “It’s frustrating when a kid pitches a good game and the defense can’t make the plays behind him,” Word said. “Michael Bender came in relief and did a good job.” But there was no getting around Wright. On Wednesday, Black took the lead early, but an eight-run fourth inning put them in a hole and forced the North Posey to rally past visiting Fort Branch VFW by a 10-9 count. “We kept playing baseball,” Word said. “I told my guys, we gave up an eightrun inning, if we want to win this game, we have to keep chipping away. We have to focus on each pitch. Not each at-bat, not each inning, but each pitch.” Which is what Black did and it started working out almost immediately. The North Posey team got two of those runs back in the bottom of the fourth. VFW answered in the top of the fifth stretching things back to 9-5, but Black shut them down after that, scoring five runs in the last two frames to pull out the win. Austin Graves had a hit, walked three times and scored three runs, while batting ninth for Black. Jones tripled and scored a pair of runs, while James Marshall walked twice and doubled in a run during Black’s seventh-

inning comeback. Taylor Brown doubled in the tying run, scored the winning run when the VFW third baseman threw Jared Hostettler’s grounder over the catcher’s head and picked up the win with a shutout inning in the top of the seventh. Bender had two hits, while Zach Carl added another single. Black jumped out to a big lead early in the game, and then held off visiting Princeton Red 9-4 on Memorial Day night. While Word was concerned about how his team played following a weeklong layoff, he was also impressed by Black’s ability to adapt. “We were missing four players,” he said. “This just shows our versatility. We were missing two starters in key positions and we used a lot of people in different positions.” Several of those players stepped up, including Brown, who filled in behind the plate and did a good job, while others turned in some good plays while filling in at different positions. Red defeated another county team, St. Wendel 6-1 Wednesday night, as Connor Motz and 13-year-old Grant Scheller combined to get the win. Red struggled against St. Wendel’s Derek Lindauer until the top of the seventh, whey they added three runs

Watermelon Run-Walk slated The 20th annual Owensville Watermelon Run-Walk will be held on Saturday, July 30, during the annual Watermelon Festival.

to double a 3-1 lead. “I thought it was a pretty good performance,” Voegel said. “It helps that we have Ryan Gish back catching and hitting third. It’s always helpful to have someone who’s had varsity experience behind the plate.” Merchants topped Red 7-5 on Memorial Day night, as what made the North Posey team against Black broke them at Haubstadt. A series of errors led to four unearned runs and erased a 3-1 lead in the fourth inning. Motz threw well over the last three innings to finish things up, Voegel added. Voegel is optimistic about the rest of the season, especially since a number of the older players from the high school Vikings are back with the team and they are providing leadership for the rest of the squad. Both teams played makeup games Sunday, Black at Owensville and Red at home against Oakland City. On Monday, Black hosted St. Wendel, while Red traveled to Princeton for a game against Red. Both teams had two losses entering Sunday’s games, leaving them tied in the loss column. Black has played one more contest and had five wins.

Legion season begins Wednesday Mount Vernon’s Sectional baseball championship did throw a crimp into part of the summer season last week, by pushing back the start of the Junior American Legion campaign. The Owen Dunn Post Five team was to have started the season Wednesday with a seven-inning game against Junior Funkhouser at the Barker Avenue Complex in Evansville, but that game had to be called off when the Wildcats brought home a Sectional crown Tuesday night. Post Five’s season will now start this Wednesday, when they take on Pate in a 4:30 pm. doubleheader at Washington Middle School. The team will be on the road until June 14, when they host Boonville at the high school baseball field. Mount Vernon is playing a limited schedule this season with mostly Junior Legion games, due to a lack of seniors on this year’s Wildcat squad.

Posey County pair to add quality, depth to Vincennes University team By Steve Joos Ken Renshaw and Hunter Motz have spent the last four years dueling on the tracks and cross country courses of Southwestern Indiana, running against each other for their respective schools (Mount Vernon for Renshaw, North Posey for Motz). This fall, they’ll be running together for the same school. Renshaw has recently signed a national letter of intent to attend Vincennes University and run for the Trailblazers, joining his longtime county rival, who signed with VU earlier this spring. “It’s good for law enforcements and I want to be a conservation office,” Renshaw said. Oddly enough, Motz also plans to study criminal

Ken Renshaw justice at Vincennes with hopes of becoming a conservation officer. Renshaw isn’t sure about where he will fit in at VU, although he feels that he will be running the mile in track, along with cross country.

Running against the best competition in southwestern Indiana has helped him prepare for running in junior college, Renshaw said, including a certain distance runner from North Posey. “I think me and Hunter are going to do awesome next year,” he said. “We aren’t going to push each other around that much. I think that will help.” Pushing each other around on the courses around Posey County helped Renshaw qualify for the Regionals four times in both cross country and track. He has earned three All-Big Eight Conference selections in each sport and was named the most outstanding runner on this year’s cross country team after finishing

fourth in the Sectional. Renshaw was also a threetime conference distance champion. The two Posey County runners should be assets to their new school, accord to their future coach. “I’ve been watching Ken and Hunter race for awhile,” VU coach Chris Gaffner said. “They’ve shown a lot of potential and they competed too in a college stetting and really improve. They’ve both hard workers and they both have a lot of talent. I’m really happy to have them at Vincennes University this year.” Gaffner went on to say that Renshaw and Motz both have to be top seven runners in cross country and if they

work hard enough, maybe even the top three or four. “We have six or seven runners who are at about the same times as they are,” the coach said. “I think they can get in there and mix it up and I think they’re ready to get in there and see what they can do. The sky’s the limit and I think that they’ll do well.” The Blazers were in a bit of a rebuilding mode for cross country, but were in the top ten at the National Junior College Athletic Association meet, finishing seventh. “I’m just happy that these are guys are going to come to VU and be a part of our program,” Gaffner said. “I’m looking forward to work-

Hunter Motz ing with them the next two years.” The son of Greg and Gayla Renshaw of Mount Vennon, Ken chose VU over an unnamed North Carolina school.

Arena Silver Bell, Linex, Young Guns win It was a night for one-sided affairs as play resumed in the St. Wendel Friday night softball league last week.

In the middle, Team Linex was a 16-10 winner over Marty Fisher.

Cox cracks top 15 at state Katie Cox didn’t get a medal and her team got no points, but the Mount Vernon jumper had a fairly good weekend at Saturday’s Indiana High School Athletic Association state girls’ track meet. None of the participants from Mount Vernon and North Posey finished high enough to earn a medal or points at Bloomington, but one girl did make the top 15 in her event. Cox had the best finish of the Posey County contingent, taking 15th in the girls’ long jump with a distance of 16 feet, 11 inches. Erica McCormick (2:22.88) was 24th in the 800 meters. In the boys’ meet Friday night, Mount Vernon’s Will Terbrack came in 20th in the long jump with a distance ot 20 feet and six and a quarter inches.

Sgt. John Dike retires after 28 years By Pam Robinson The Mount Vernon Board of Public Works and Safety wished recently retired Sgt. John Dike well at the Thursday, June2, meeting. Mount Vernon Police Chief Grant Beloat presented Dike with a wrapped gift of appreciation to recognize him for nearly 28 years of service on the police force. Later in the meeting, Beloat received permission to move forward with the purchase of a 2011 Dodge Charger police package vehicle from Expressway at a cost of $23,247. The vehicle replaces the oldest police car, a 2003 Crown Victoria, which has recently required considerable maintenance—over $1,000 this year. Depending upon trade-in value, the Crown Victoria may be traded in or possibly kept as a code enforcement vehicle at the request of Mayor John Tucker. In addition, the board accepted the low quote of OfficeWare for a 36-month lease of a new copier for the police department at $328.45 quarterly, a savings of around $140 quarterly.

Myriad of tasks keeps Kirk in community demand

Long-time Mount Vernon resident Vivian Kirk has served her community well. Most recently, she has served for two years as the case manager and sexual assault and domestic violence advocate for WillowTree of Posey County. Kirk’s grant-funded position will end next month, but the women she has helped will benefit for a lifetime. Her 30-plus years in social services started in her home town of Chicago. In her first job, she worked with the city to enhance recreational opportunities for children living in blighted inner city neighborhoods. Vacant lots were purchased, cleaned out and developed into modern playgrounds. Kirk then turned her attention to the private sector and attended classes offered by ITT for those interested in business. She earned a certificate of completion in small business management and went on to manage several businesses prior to leaving Chicago. Her journey then brought her to Evansville, where she resumed working in the social service field. Kirk returned to college as an adult non-traditional student and earned her bachelor’s degree in social work from the University of Southern Indiana. She has put that degree to work in a variety of community programs: SINE, or Southwestern Indiana Network of Education, the Governor’s program for economic development, the American Cancer Society, the American Red Cross, the board of directors for the former daycare at Trinity United Church of Christ, the trustees’ FEMA outreach and CASA’s outreach to represent abused children in the courts. In addition, she

has served in mental health, working with those with substance abuse issues as well as with developmentally disabled and geriatric populations. At WillowTree, her role has kept her in touch with women needing help to deal with or to remove themselves from domestic violence situations. She’s been visible not only in the Mount Vernon office, but also at God’s Storehouse (St. Peter’s United Church of Christ food pantry) in Wadesville and at Poseyville Christian Church. Her work has required active listening to refer victims of domestic violence to the network of social service agencies with which WillowTree interacts. As a sexual assault advocate for WillowTree, Kirk has been on the “call-out” list for Albion Fellows Bacon Center in Evansville, and it’s not been unusual for her to respond to late night or early morning phone calls to help a rape victim. On the morning we talked, she had just returned from St. Mary’s Hospital, where she had helped a rape victim, along with the specially trained SANE nurses (sexual assault nurse examiners), to deal with the trauma and to receive needed services. For the past eight years, she has become well known to underage smokers caught by law enforcement in Posey County. Serving the prosecu-

tor’s office, she acts as the coordinator for providing smoking cessation classes to help misguided youth kick their smoking habit. On June 20, Kirk and her husband Tony, a Vectren employee, will celebrate 25 years of marriage. The couple is blessed with two grown children, Kelsey and Jeffrey. They make their church home

Congrats Mt Vernon Wildcats

Mount Vernon’s Wildcats claw from down seven to title

By Steve Joos The Mount Vernon baseball team got good pitching, strong defense and good hitting enabling them to win their first Sectional championship in five years this week. They especially got a lot of good hitting. Mount Vernoan spotted Memorial a 7-0 lead and then came storming back to post an 11-7 victory for the Class 3A Evansville Sectional baseball tournament Tuesday night at Braun Stadium. The Cats outscored their opposition 36-9 in the three games, two of which were determined by the mercy rule. The tournament was pushed back to early in the week because of rain and graduation ceremonies. They needed just about all of the runs they scored in the title tilt Tuesday night, rallying from a 7-0 deficit to beat Memorial 11-7. Coach Paul Quinzer didn’t think spotting the Tigers a sevenrun lead was part of the plan, but he wasn’t all that surprised that his team was able to come back. “This team’s just that way,” he said. “They just have that mentality that we can come back and we have the sticks to do it.” Quinzer credited assistant coach Kevin Krizan’s hitting instruction with helping develop those sticks and he also pleased with the way Drake McNamara and Troy Paris stepped up after Ross Canada struggled in the early going. The team’s designated hitter Tuesday, McNamara took over for Canada after Jeremy King opened the top of the second with a triple. Kyle Neimeier walked and Sam Griggs singled

in King before McNamara settled down and shut done the Tigers for two innings before Paris, who had pitched in the Cats’ 12-2 mercy rule win over Princeton in the semifinals, went to work in the fourth and closed things out. After allowing those two baserunners, McNamara retired the next six batters he faced. Paris yielded a leadoff single to King in the top of fifth and then set down nine of the next 10 men he faced until Lucas Stippler reached on an error with two out in the top of the seventh. Memorial had taken an eight-run lead before the Wildcats came back to outslug the Evansville school 14-10 during the regular season, so Mount Vernon had done this before and on Tuesday, they started chipping away early. The Wildcats took control of the game in the bottom of the fourth. Mount Vernon loaded the bases on a single by Paris sandwiched around walks to Jason Stemple and Bo Harris. River VanZant singled in the tying runs and then Aaron Roberts lifted a fly ball to center that brought in Harris for the go-ahead run. That rally was part of a long process, however. VanZant beat out a slow roller to short leading off the bottom of the second and came around when McNamara started helping his own cause with a triple. The sophomore reliever came in on a fly ball by Roberts, making the score 7-2. Stemple walked and Paris singled to open the Mount Vernon third, but Harris hit into a double play. They rally was stymied, right? Wrong. VanZant, McNamara, Roberts and Peter Fink each singled, scoring two runs and loading the bases, then a walk to Jevin Redman forced in the a third, pulling Mount Vernon to within three runs at 7-5. A run in the fifth and two more in the sixth gave the Wildcats some insurance. McNamara collected three hits on the night, while Stemple drew five walks to bolster the Mount Vernon offense and at least for a while in McNamara’s case, the pitcher helped him-

After allow A allowing those two baserunners, McNamara retired the nnext six ba batters he faced. Paris yielded a leadoff single to Kingg in the top of fifth and then set down nine of the next 10 menn he faced until Lucas Stippler reached on an error with two out in the top of the seventh. Memorial hhad taken an eight-run lead before the Wildcats M cam me back to outslug the Evansville school 14-10 during the came regu ular season regular season, so Mount Vernon had done this before and on Tues sday, they started chipping away early. Tuesday, The Wildca Wildcats took control of the game in the bottom of the fourth. Mount Vernon loaded the bases on a single by Paris sandwiched ar around walks to Jason Stemple and Bo Harris. Riv v VanZant singled in the tying runs and then Aaron RobRiver ertss lifted a fly ball to center that brought in Harris for the gogo-ahead run. T That rally was part of a long process, however. V VanZant beat out a slow roller to short leading off the bottom m of the second and came around when McNamara started help p helping his own cause with a triple. The sophomore reliever cam m in on a fly ball by Roberts, making the score 7-2. came S Stemple walked and Paris singled to open the Mount Vernonn third, but Harris hit into a double play. They rally was stym m stymied, right? W Wrong. V VanZant, McNamara, Roberts and Peter Fink each singled, scoring two runs and loading the bases, then a walk to Jevin Redman forced in the a third, pulling Mount Vernon to within three runs at 7-5. A run in the fifth and two more in the sixth gave the Wildcats some insurance. McNamara collected three hits on the night, while Stemple drew five walks to bolster the Mount Vernon offense and at least for a while in McNamara’s case, the pitcher helped him-

self out at the plate. The Cats reached the championship game by taking advantage of whatever Princeton gave them during Tuesday morning’s Semifinals. Things like the catcher not being able to hang on to the ball. Mount Vernon scored four times on wild pitchers and once more on a passed ball while storming past the Tigers 12-2 in six innings under to 10-run rule. “We had a nice pitching performance from both (Caleb) Hames and (Hank) Dausmann,” Quinzer explained. “We held them to two runs and that’s what we planned on doing. The pitchers threw well, we played some good (defense) and the hitters came out swinging the bats. Of course, Princeton gave us quite a few walks, so that helped.” So did the tricky ball movement after the Tiger hurlers threw the ball. “We go some guys on base and took advantage of their miscues,” Quinzer said. Take the way Mount Vernon’s first run scored, for instance. Aaron Choate walked to open Tuesday morning’s game, was bunted to second by Stemple and then finished touring the bases and a passed ball and a wild pitch. It took a little longer for the Cats to break the Semifinal contest open, but four runs in the top of the second put them in a commanding position. McNamara and Roberts each singled with one out and pulled off a double steal ahead of a two-out walk to Redman. Choate then cleared the bases with a triple and scored himself on (what else?) a wild pitch to make the s core 5-0 Mount Vernon in the top of the second. Roberts tripled home a run and scored on a single by Fink as part of a three-run Wildcat fourth inning that pushed the bulge to 8-0. Princeton got on the scoreboard in the bottom of the fourth on a walk to Alec Sandefar, a wild pitch (yes, the Cats had a few of those)

and Justin Duncan’s single. A walk to Kyle Cross chased Hames, who worked three innings before facing three batters without retiring anyone in the fourth. A fly ball, a walk and twoout single by Ryan Lasley plated the Tigers’ second run of the day, but Dausmann settled down after that, giving up just one hit the rest of the way. VanZant was hit by a pitch and came around on a ground out and a pair of passed balls to get back one of those runs for Mount Vernon in the top of the fifth. In the sixth, Redman singled and went to second on an error. Pinch runner Clay Ford moved to third on a wild pitch and crossed the plate on Choate’s single. Stemple was hit by a pitch, the runners moved up on a double steal and Harris singled them both home. Dausmann picked up the win, according to state requirements that a starting pitcher finish more than half the game to be eligible for the win after he came in relief of Hames in the bottom of the fourth. “We walked some guys, they battled to get on base,” Quinzer said. “They wanted to stay in tournament, just like we did. It’s a hot day, our pitchers, they walked guys.” That win put the Wildcats in the championship game, which was where they wanted to be and this time, they wanted to go one step further. They did, and everything worked out just like a master plan. Except for giving up the seven runs in the first two innings to Memorial. VanZant had four hits, scored four runs and drove in four runs in the Sectional opener for the Cats, a 13-0 romp over Gibson Southern which lasted five innings under the 10-run rule. Choate had three hits and scored a pair of runs, while Paris banged out three hits and scored three runs. Harris, Fink, Redman and McNamara each banged out two hits. VanZant, Roberts and McNamara each doubled.
