MV Fire Chief Roger Waters to retire Serious injury on I-64

By Pam Robinson The Mount Vernon Board of Public Works and Safety honored the request of Mount Vernon Fire Chief Roger Waters to advertise his position, which will become vacant early this summer. After the meeting, Mayor John Tucker spoke about Waters’ service to the city. “Chief Roger Waters as a member of the fire department has always performed exemplary, has always done his job. We’ve been very fortunate to have had him all these number of years. As you well know, it’s not always been easy to keep police and firemen, but Roger is a local resident who hired on here and stayed with the department. Roger has over 30 years here. I wish

On Thursday evening, February 24, at approximately 5:17 p.m., Indiana State Police responded to single vehicle crash on I-64 at the 13 mile-marker that seriously injured an Illinois driver. Preliminary investigation revealed Robert Owen, 42, of Grayville, Ill., was driving his 2003 Ford Mustang westbound on I-64 at the 13 mile-marker when he lost control, left the roadway and struck the end of the guardrail in the median. At the time of the crash, the area was receiving hard rain. Owen was not wearing his seatbelt and had to be extricated from his vehicle by Poseyville Volunteer Fire Department. Owen was taken to Deaconess Hospital where he is currently being treated for his injuries. The driver was cited for speed too fast for current conditions. Investigating Officers are Trooper Paul Stolz of the Indiana State Police. The Assisting Officer was Poseyville’s Town Marshall Doug Salzman.

him well in his next endeavor, whatever it might be. I’m sure he’s going to spend time with his new grandbaby. I’m sure he’s looking forward to spending time there,” Tucker stated. “He’s really enjoyed the job, you could tell. He has taken a lot of interest in the department as far as equipment-wise in keeping it up. There’s not a day goes by that he doesn’t come in and we talk about a piece of equipment that needs to be checked, looked into or replaced. He stays on top of that. Obviously, it’s important that the police and fire department—all departments—have the equipment they need. And Roger has really stayed on top of it.” Waters himself declined an interview regard-

Abatements make progress By Dave Pearce The Posey County Council took positive steps for two abatements during their recent Tuesday morning meeting. The Council gave preliminary approval for an abatement for Bristol Myers for a project which has already been started. William Hayes, representing Bristol Myers, was on hand for the public hearing which yielded no objections to the proposed abatement. Hayes was advised, as is standard procedure, to interview and hire as many Posey County residents as possible. Hayes was also told that the Council would request the company to purchase as many supplies as possible in Posey County. The project at Bristol is expected to be completed by March 1, 2012. The Council also heard a request for an abatement from Cargill, Inc., Company representatives were on hand and told the Council that in order to provide additional grain storage to maintain their market share, they would be building an additional 3.5 million bushel grain storage facility. The Council assured company representatives that since the abateWul-Wee (aka Dave Ritzert) and Kipper (aka Hadi Shriner Eric Kippenbrock) clown around and make balloon toys for the young and ment has been officially requested, young at heart to help celebrate the15th anniversary of the Children’s work could begin on the project.

ect was questioned by the council. Representatives on hand could not answer the question since the paperwork had been filled out by Cargill officials. The current request appears to be for $7.5 million for real estate and another $5 million for equipment, for a total of $12.5 millions. The company representative indicated that the project would probably mean the addition of three employees. In other business: •County assessor Nancy Hoehn was on hand and reported that work is well ahead of schedule in her office and that her office will be proactive and aggressive in oil and gas production taxing in Posey County. She indicated the benchmark for the current date is to be at about 25 percent complete and that her office’s work currently stands at approximately 50 percent complete. Hoehn also said she will be checking records with the Department of Natural Resources in an effort to make sure taxes are being properly paid on gas and oil production. She indicated that letters will be going out to give producers an opportunity to make corrections to reports currently on file. •The Council proved the appointment of Harold Morgan to the Alexandrian Public Library Board.

In March 2009, there were 41 fatalities on Indiana roadways. Of these, 24 percent involved a driver who was legally intoxicated.

ing his retirement. In other business: •Wastewater Superintendent Rodney Givens reported that his department had received its new five-year permit, costing approximately $335 a year and billed quarterly. He continued and stated that the effluent wet toxicity testing would be more expensive, approximately $2,100. Finally, he referenced the gas station’s request for ground water testing, which is being studied further. •Street Commissioner Roy Maynard reported that the hole at Upton Road and the city limits was caused by a rotted culvert. He said for a few days the road will be down to one lane while it is repaired.

On Friday, Feb. 25, at 1:15 and 1:45 p.m., approximately 193 students at St. Philip School, 3420 Saint Philips Road South in Mount Vernon participated in assemblies featuring the Easter Seals Hop-N-Ing disability awareness program. The children learned about disabilities to show their support for classmate Sophie Grace Weinzapfel, who has a severe/profound hearing loss and receives services at the Easter Seals Rehabilitation Center in Evansville. Sophie, the 2011 local Easter Seals child representative, is a first grader at St. Philip School and attended the 1:15 p.m. Hop-N-Ing assembly. She is the daughter of Greg and Julie Weinzapfel. On Friday, students participated in the interactive assemblies presented by Chelsea Schmidt, special events and communications coordinator for the Easter Seals Rehabilitation Center. The unique curriculum uses a set of dolls with a variety of disabilities to encourage role-playing and discussions. In the days to come, students will participate in the second phase of

By Pam Robinson The Church of the Nazarene, located at 531 E. Steammill St. in New Harmony, is hosting a special soup supper this Saturday, March 5. The event starts at 5:30 p.m. and will help sponsor six Southwestern Indiana families visiting Orlando this July 3-8 for the National Federation of the Blind Convention. The featured homemade soups are chili, potato, and vegetable, served alongside one of a variety of sandwiches. Dessert and drink (tea or lemonade) will be included in the supper also. Diners may eat inside at the church fellowship hall or ask for carryout. There is no set price for admission. Instead, donations will be collected. Members of Church of the Nazarene, Dave and Jeanette Sturgell and their family will travel to the July convention to learn more about how they can promote independence for their 9-year-old daughter Taengkwa, who they brought home to New Harmony from Thailand in August 2007. She is the youngest member of the Sturgell family, which includes three birth children—daughters Parker (14) and Brooke (16) and son Jake (18). It will be their first trip to the convention along with four families from Gibson County and one family from Warrick County. Although Taengkwa is enrolled at New Harmony School, she receives special services and studies at Haubstadt Community School with visual instruction teacher Jeanie Lee. In the third grade now, Taengkwa reads and is still learning Braille. Mom Jeanette underscores that Taengkwa’s skill in reading Braille will make her 70 percent more employable when she reaches adulthood. A preemie, Taengkwa didn’t receive treatment for her fragile, underdeveloped eyes and thus lost her sight. A foster family in Thailand brought her into their home from the neighboring Bangkok orphanage when she was five months old. Starting at age 3, she studied in a boarding school, coming home to her foster family only on weekends. Although the boarding school helped its students to learn self-care in hygiene, no other skills were taught to the visually impaired, such as using a cane or reading Braille. Jeanette says it’s common to see the blind begging in Thailand, where no social services are provided. When the Sturgells brought the then 5-year-old Taengkwa to their New Harmony home, she could express three needs—I’m hungry, I’m thirsty and Mommy, toilet. Within six months, she was speaking English well and navigating the house well. Today, Taengkwa speaks perfectly, but is working on comprehension. By 8th grade, she will catch up to her peers in comprehension as well. She can see only light—and perhaps shadows. Jeanette says she either sees shadows or hears the echo off vehicles and farm machinery since she rides her tricycle around an “obstacle course” without running into anything. “She’s been so much fun,” Jeanette says. “She’s also appreciative of things we take for granted.”

OPINION

You can have the side effects, I’ll just go ahead and die For quite some time, I have not liked the direction American health care has been traveling. It began a year or two before I lost my mother TRUTH... when I began to learn that STRANGER unless you are proactive in THAN your health care or in the FICTION care of those you love, you are just not going to get BY DAVE PEARCE much attention. I was always more than satisfied with the care I received from my long-time physician Doctor Matthew Lee in Mount Vernon. He visited me when he didn’t even have to when my heart decided to quit beating on Sept. 8, 2004. He took a common sense approach to medicine and it worked out very well for the both of us until a move to Henderson forced me to go to a doctor nearer my home. But being the primary caregiver for my mother opened a whole new world of medicine for me. It seems there are no longer family practice physicians anymore. For every problem you have, you are sent to a specialist in the field and this new doctor apparently knows little to nothing about you except for the current problem. I have been amazed lately at the television commercials for new medications. Just last night I listened as one of the final dis-

claimers of a new medication said “please tell your doctor if you have had heart problems.” Excuse me…should my doctor not already know if I have heart problems? Last time I checked, he had M.D. behind his name and I was writing the checks for my care. Has that situation been reversed? If so, my doctor is several hundred dollars in arrears. But it’s not just the one disclaimer. Who in their right mind would want to try one of the new drugs they are advertising now. It seems that all the side effects disclaimers involve a chance of blindness or high blood pressure or some other undesirable problem and many, yes I did say many, say that the medication has been known to cause death. Wow, Bob Jones, serve me up some grape Kool Aid! That should take care of it! And then there’s the one we all hear about, “if you have an erection lasting more than four hours, please consult your physician.” Excuse me? If I have an erection lasting more than four hours at my age, my contact will be with the Guinness Book of Records, not my physician. “Please check with your doctor to see if you are healthy enough for sexual activity.” No comment!

Then there’s the antidepressant side effects which almost always include a chance for increase in suicidal thoughts. If that happens, please contact your physician. Other side effects include Nausea, Insomnia, Anxiety, Restlessness, Decreased sex drive, Dizziness, Weight gain or loss, Tremors, Sweating, Sleepiness, Fatigue, Dry mouth, Diarrhea, Constipation, and Headaches. I only thought I was depressed before! This past week, my older sister was attending her grandson’s wrestling match at St. Matthews and fell on the steps on the way out of the school. An ambulance came and it appeared that she got just about as good and prompt care as one could have asked for. It didn’t take long for doctors to let the family know that her hip was, indeed, broken. She would be admitted that night and surgery would probably be performed the following day. As many members of the family made their way to the hospital at the appointed time (around 2:30), circumstances apparently beyond everyone’s control made it impossible for her surgery until well after 9 p.m. that evening. Hey, if an emergency came in, by all means, address it. With some pain medication, despite hunger, she was able to make it.

But what was particularly disturbing was when her “hospitalist” (a name for the doctor who replaces your regular doctor while you are hospitalized) came into the room. This was along about 3 o’clock. He stood over her bed and in somewhat broken English asked, “How vas da surgery?” Excuse me sir but there has been no surgery performed yet, I explained. “Ve consider dis a livesafing surgery,” he said. “Iv you decide not to have it, you vill be dead in less than six months.” “Newsflash,” I thought, as I watched my sister’s reaction. There had never been a question as to whether or not my sister was planning to have the surgery. As a matter of fact, she probably walks more each day than I do, exercising around Birdland in Mount Vernon. “Iv you decide to ‘ave the surgery, chances are you vill get betta,” he continued. Wow, I think I could have passed at least that portion of medical school. I’ve just about decided that when I reach the point of not being able to make my own decisions, turn me loose in a pharmacy or a liquor store…or better yet, a pharmacy that sells liquor. My chances of getting well are probably just about as good and I will be feeling better if it is my time to go!

Gavel Gamut’s “What we know for sure” My friend Sam Blankenship says what we do not know causes us less harm than what we know for sure that is not so. In other words, ignorance is less dangerous than arrogance or, more kindly, a closed mind. When I went to college in the Sixties, iconoclasm was the Holy Grail of academic culture. Whatever had been traditional wisdom was deemed by the trend setters of the Sixties to be untrendy. I, and almost every college student I knew, bought this whole package without so much as a nod to the facts. Past cultural values such as rites of passage and honoring society’s traditions were dismissed as so much legerdemain by the professors and pundits. A sure way to receive a good grade in an English literature, history, psychology, sociology, political science or humanities class was to denigrate established

common among their elders, but somehow they’re learning to tolerate it. After all, they know who supplies the soda.

Wisconsin Unions vs. Governor Walker: A Battle for the Soul of America

Letter to the Editor To the editor: Our state legislators have proposed a state budget, currently being considered in House Committee, which would drastically cut funding for the Metropolitan School District of Mount Vernon. This proposal reallocates the school funding formula so that it cuts funding for small and declining-enrollment school systems. The current proposal would cut the MSDMV General Fund by $2,031,000 in 2012 and another $637,000 in 2013. You can expect to see and hear more about this and other school legislation over the next few weeks. Fortunately, this state budget, HB1001, is still a proposal and can be changed and improved as it moves through the legislature, but we need to be contacting our legislators now. With a combination of staff reductions over the past few years and the recently announced salary cuts, the MSD of Mount Vernon now stands on a solid financial footing

mores. And a quick road to a bad grade was to intimate anyone who was already dead ever knew anything.

GAVEL GAMUT BY JUDGE JIM REDWINE One of the most maligned cultural values was the tradition of honoring those who died with a public display. Evelyn Waugh even wrote a best seller entitled The Loved One which excoriated every aspect of the great American funeral. While we might marvel at the creation of the pyramids, the purposes for which they were created, eternal life and cathartic release, were laughed at and the expenditure of labor and treasure was deplored. But as we waste billions on ineffectual security mea-

sures and continue to make new enemies out of old friends, we might want to revisit what we know for sure that is not so. And a decent respect for the great civilizations of history such as the Egyptians, Meades and Persians, Babylonians and other marvelous cultures to whom we owe so much may suggest we still have a great deal to gain from studying them. Those great societies paid homage to their dead with celebrations and architecture. Their dominance lasted thousands of years and their influence is felt yet today. We in America have been ascendant on the world stage for only about one hundred years. That pales next to the Egyptian preservation of their dead. But, what about us, what do we have to learn from ancient traditions such as burials? Perhaps next week we can discuss the benefits from such activities.

By: Dr. Mark W. Hendrickson It is hard to overstate what is at stake in the dramatic showdown between Wisconsin’s teachers and their Republican governor and legislature. The political and economic course of our country hinges on how the issue of public-sector unions is resolved, in Wisconsin and elsewhere. For the sake of our country’s political and economic future, Gov. Scott Walker and his Republican colleagues need to prevail in the current contest with the Wisconsin teachers’ union and their allies. That isn’t easy for me to say. As an educator, I have great respect for all those (and they are many) in my chosen profession who capably and even brilliantly serve our nation’s youth. The fact is, though, that the status quo is untenable. The budget crunch isn’t merely a projected crisis some 30 years in the future. Right now, several state and local governments are careening toward fiscal disaster. There are many factors, of course, but a major one is that retirement plans for public-sector workers are spectacularly underfunded, perhaps by as much as $3 trillion nationwide. Governor Walker is being cast as the ogre for proposing to avert the onrushing flood of red ink, but the blame properly belongs to his predecessors who made unaffordable and unkeepable promises. All but the most zealous ideologues will admit that you can’t spend what you don’t have, and even some Wisconsin teachers are now indicating a willingness to help balance the state’s budget by contributing more to their pension and health benefits. Politically, this battle is the ultimate partisan clash. Unions and the Democratic Party are joined at the hip. Unions collect mandatory dues from their members, then contribute massive financial and human support to the electoral campaigns of their political allies (overwhelmingly Democrats). Democrat office-holders repay these favors by granting unions generous legislated benefits, both monetary and in the form of rules that strengthen the political power of union officials. Wisconsin’s Democratic senators took the extraordinary step of fleeing the state in what appears to be a desperate ploy to preserve the flood of union money coming to them, while Republicans seem every bit as hopeful of reducing the flow of tax dollars to their political opponents. Indeed, it is the use of tax dollars to lobby for more government spending, and thus for more taxes, that is the crux of the problem. Public-sector unionism is the ultimate conflict of interest, because the necessary objec-

tive of these unions is to capture control of the very legislatures that vote on their compensation packages. Even the strongly pro-union Franklin Roosevelt believed that key tactics employed by private-sector unions were inappropriate for workers on the public payroll. In his words, The process of collective bargaining, as usually understood, cannot be transplanted into the public service due to distinct and insurmountable limitations. I share FDR’s conviction that, in a government of the people, by the people, and for the people, those who work for the government must be servants of the people. When public-sector unions threaten to withhold their services unless the taxpayers, through their elected representatives, pay up, it creates a process of political extortion by which the majority of citizens is made subservient to the public-employee minority. This is the way things work under feudalism or socialism, but is the exact inverse of the proper order in a truly democratic republic. Some have called the Republican proposals in Wisconsin union busting. This is inaccurate. Walker is proposing to reform unions, not to abolish them. He seeks to make the payment of union dues voluntary instead of compulsory. If teachers believe that what the union leadership is doing is worthwhile, they can continue to support those activities through voluntary contributions. If, on the other hand, Republican teachers would rather not contribute to Democratic candidates, they could follow their conscience and opt out. In a democratic republic, people should be free from being coerced into supporting candidates and causes to which they are opposed. What is really at stake in the Wisconsin donnybrook is whether individual liberty or government power has the upper hand in our country. We are witnessing a battle for the soul of the republic.

DIRECTIONS 1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. 2. Put the bacon and ham into a food processor and pulse briefly 3-4 times to chop fine. Do not purée. Place the mixture in a large bowl with the remaining meatball ingredients and mix well to combine. Using your hands, form meatballs anywhere from 1-inch to 2-inches in diameter. The smaller diameter meatballs will make for easier eating if you are making them for an appetizer for a party. Larger meatballs will work well for a main course. 3. Arrange the meatballs in a casserole pan and put in the oven for about 1 hour for 2-inch diameter meatballs, or 30-40 minutes for 1-inch diameter meatballs.These meatballs are pretty forgiving, but look for an internal temperature of about 165° or so. 4. Make the glaze when you put the meatballs in the oven. Mix all the ingredients except the corn starch in a small pot and bring to a boil. Whisk in the corn starch and simmer 1-2 minutes. 5. Baste the meatballs once they have cooked for 20 minutes, then again at 40 minutes for larger meatballs or at 10 minutes and 20 minutes if you are making small meatballs, and then again at 5 minutes before they’re done.. Serve by themselves as a party appetizer, or on pineapple rings. Makes 20-60 meatballs, depending on the size.

By Sherry Graves ciety in the United States. Having left Germany for religious freedom, they established Harmony in 1804 and lived there until 1814. In 1814 they traveled west and established our town. They remained here for 10 years. So it is here that Gertrude grew up. From seven to seventeen, Gertrude and her fellow Harmonists called New Harmony home. John Duss, author and last trustee of the Harmony Society wrote: “Little Gertrude was always in high favor not only with her grandfather, but with the entire Society. The leading men, such as Frederick Rapp, John L. Baker, and R. L. Baker, when absent on business trips to Philadelphia, New York, and other points, always wrote letters to Gertrude...Her education comprised the German, English and French languages; mathematics, painting, embroidery, and the manufacture of wax fruits and flowers. Her passion was music, and in this she received careful training, both vocal and instrumental.” By the time the Harmonists moved back to Pennsylvania to establish their third and final community of Economy, Gertrude was a young woman. Eager to make a contribution to the society, Gertrude championed the idea of silk making and eventually became an expert in the field. Under her watchful eye, the Harmonists won national recognition as silk makers. But why was Gertrude so taken with the idea of silk making? In The Harmonists and Their Silk Experiences, Kristin Shutts states the following:

Gertrude Rapp was an avid reader of many silk journals and we know that Frederick Rapp communicated with several of the silk societies. Thus, it seems reasonable to assume that the Harmonists' decision to begin to produce silk was partially born out of a desire to try their own hand at doing what so many others were attempting to do at the time and a desire to support American industry. Gertrude Rapp was a firm believer in importance of establishing a silk industry in America. She said that the silk industry was a "new and most important branch of National Industry,...to convince every Patriot, that our own and our own peoples hands themselves can produce and manufacture this so highly beloved article of luxury, with which we are so fond to adorn ourselves, and in a garment of which if thus obtained, one may justly feel a noble pride, but if the product of foreign hands, we have the best reason in the world, to feel a noble shame, when we reflect, that by the way of obtaining it, we have so much and so unpatriotically contributed to squander our national treasure, burden, our country with enormous debt, and there by lay the sure foundation of ruin and misery...". Therefore, Gertrude was not only a pioneer in the silk industry but also very pro-American in sentiment. Through out her long life she remained true to the ideals of the Harmony Society. It is no wonder that after her death it was said, “To have produced even one such character would be enough to honor any community.”

Posey County Co-op marks successful year with annual meeting The Posey County Co-op had another successful year in 2010 giving its annual report to member-stockholders at the Thursday February 24th evening meeting at the Community Center. The Purdue University women’s mu-

sical ensemble, Purduettes, entertained the large group with varied singing arrangements after a great meal prepared by the North Posey Relay for life team and a short business session.

Sales of $70,545,428 resulted in earnings of $4,277,485. The membership received $1,823,000 80% of this in cash or $1,458,000 with the balance going to the General Reserve which will eventually be invested in buildings, equipment, and inventories, and paying Federal income tax of $862,000. The Patronage Refund, Member’s share of the profits, was mailed earlier in the day giving the patrons a rebate in excess of 5 ½ % for all goods and services purchased. Jamie McCorkle of the audit firm Wilcox & McCorkle commented that the Co-op continues to be strong financially and a leader among cooperatives. Tom Weilbrenner, Jerry Schenk, and Chris Mulkey were reelected to serve on the Board of Directors that includes Larry Williams, Alvin Nurrenbern, Albert Schmitz, Jerry Schenk, Charles Mann, Wayne Wiggins, and Bernie Muller. Board Chairman, Tom Weilbrenner, commented on the volatility of the agricultural market place and how the company is dealing with the issues by building a viable organization. Manager, Jim Swinney, complemented

all employees for their dedication and support and thanked the Co-op’s suppliers for their part in this success. SynEnergy Partners, Posey’s partnership with Superior Ag Resources Coop was recognized for their successful first year of operations. SynEnergy makes retail delivery of fuels and LP Gas for both cooperatives and is operated out of offices in Mt. Vernon and Boonville. This company’s purpose is to give member-owners a greater market presence in these businesses and thus a greater opportunity to share in profits, assures a secure supply source, and provides innovative programs. After the tremendously well received presentation by the Purduettes, that included songs for all ages and a rousing rendition recognizing our armed services and of course Hail Purdue, each member family was presented with a gift and went home knowing the company they own and control continues to be major contributor to the communities of which it is a part and a company that has been able to successfully weather these trying economic times.

By Valerie Werkmeister Parents, teachers, coaches or even clergy members would like to think that child sexual abuse doesn’t happen here. Not in our community. Not to my child. It is a taboo subject that people often find difficult to discuss. Yet, the facts of the matter are staggering and sad. One in four girls and one in six boys will be sexually abused before their 18th birthday. The median age for reported sexual abuse is nine-years-old. One way to fight back against this ugly epidemic is to become educated. Ensure that you can recognize signs and react appropriately. Thanks to a joint effort by North Elementary and South Terrace Elementary Schools PTO, a child sexual abuse prevention program is being offered on Monday, March 7. The Stewards of Children education program is free to adults only and will be held from 6 p.m. – 8:45 p.m. at the North Posey High School Auditorium. The program is facilitat-

ed by the Lampion Center and was made possible through a grant from the Posey County Community Foundation. Leeanna Wassmer, North Elementary PTO Secretary, has been instrumental in promoting this program to parents at each of the schools. “I just think this is such an important topic, this is something that we really need to be involved in for our children,”Wassmer said. Participants in the program will hear stories from survivors of child sexual abuse regarding their victimization and healing. They will also learn “The 7 Steps to Protecting Our Children,” a core educational tool for sexual abuse prevention. Participants will also receive a workbook with information to take home. Anyone interested in attending the program should call Leeanna Wassmer at 874-2671 or Emily Morrison, MSW, LCSW of Lampion Center at 471-1776.

CHURCH CHURCH HURCH NEWS NEWS St. John’s Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper set St. John’s Episcopal Church located on the corner of Sixth and Mulberry streets in Mount Vernon will celebrate its traditional Shrove Tuesday pancake and sausage supper on March 8 beginning at 6 p.m. The parish hall is located on the back of the church on the 6th Street entrance. St. John’s would like to extend an invitation to all in the community to attend this Somethins' happening at Mt. Zion! Sunday was another glorious day at Mt. Zion event.

tionally the men of the church prepare the meal with the youth helping as servers. Shrove Tuesday gets its name from the ritual of shriving, when church members would confess their sins to the priest and receive forgiveness before the beginning of the Lenten season. Historically, Shrove Tuesday also marked the beginning of the 40-day Lenten fasting period when the faithful were forbidden by the church to consume meat, butter, eggs and milk. However, if a family had a store of

these foods they all would go bad by the time the fast ended on Easter Sunday. What to do? Solution: Use up the milk, butter and eggs no later than Shrove Tuesday. And so, with the addition of a little flour, the solution quickly presented itself in pancakes. Today, the Shrove Tuesday pancake tradition lives on throughout Western Europe, the United States, Canada, and Australia. For more information about St. John’s pancake supper, please call 838-5445.

Women, men and children in more than 170 countries and regions will celebrate World Day of Prayer, Friday, March 4, 2011. The women of Chile have written the service around the theme How many loaves have you? They ask us to enter a process that draws us into the Bible, into the context of Chile and into the real situations of our lives and communitites. Together, we are asked to respond to what we have and how we can share it with others. In this past year, Chile has been challenged by a devastating earthquake and the collapse of a mine in which many miners were trapped. Again we are reminded to share our bread

and to receive the bread that is shared with us. On March 4, 2011, let us reach out our hands and hearts to touch the lives of sisters and brothers in Chile and around the world. This year’s services will be held on Friday, March 4, 7 p.m. at Poseyville Christian Church, Main at Cale, Poseyville. Invite your friends, family and communites of faith to join the women of Chile in prayer and song to support women’s ecumencial ministries toward justice, peace, healing and wholeness. The annual offereing will support the work of World Day of Prayer USA and help meet the needs of families who are victims of many

forms of poverty, violence and human trafficking. World Day of Prayer (WDP) is a worldwide ecumenical movement of Christians of many traditions who come together to observe a commone day of prayer each year on the first Friday in March. Services begin at sunrise in the Pacific and follow the sun across the globe on the day of celebration. Each year a different country serves as the writer of the World Day of Prayer worship service. World Day of Prayer was founded on the idea that prayer and action are inseparable in the service of God’s kingdom. For more information, visit www.wdpusa.org.

Sermon of the Week: Godly Human/Humanly God By: The Rev. Doris Beckerman, Poseyville Christian Church John 1:1-18; 2/13/11; PCC If you’re like me, you go through life trying to feel or imagine, “What would it really be like to have been with Jesus when he was here on earth?” I know I tend to go back and forth between different images. One image I have is that I am living in Bethany, and because I am a close friend to Mary & Martha, & their brother, Lazarus, I know Jesus as a friend, just like they do. That means I know Jesus as a regular human being—I know his favorite foods, & I hang out when he comes to their house to rest. Another image I have is totally different. I imagine that I am taking a loved one to Jesus to be healed of a terrible disease. I’m right there for the miracle, and I can feel God’s power to bless. Maybe there’s never been any question in your mind about whether Jesus was mostly God, or mostly human, or an equal combination. In the Bible, he’s both--God & human. But over the centuries, some Christians have believed that when Jesus was on earth, he was more human than he was God. Other Christians have believed that Jesus was more God than he was human. In the study of theology, questioning how human or how Godly Jesus was, is called Christology. This is not quite the same argument as questioning of whether Jesus was a real person, or just a myth that some people dreamed up. In the historical Jesus movement, there are Christians who believe that Jesus was just a

myth. But Harry Emerson Fosdick, a theologian and well-known preacher in the first half of the 20th century, wrote a good book about this. In Fosdick’s book, “The Man from Nazareth”, Fosdick took on those who would argue that Jesus was just a myth. Fosdick’s main argument is that Jesus was a real man because people who lived when Jesus did, talked and wrote and acted as though Jesus were a real man. Fosdick’s book reminds us that Jesus impacted lots of people as a real man: the crowds; the scribes, Pharisees, the Sadducees & other Jews; also, his Disciples; and the Apostle Paul. Fosdick points out that Paul lived at the same time as Jesus did, but Paul’s writings do not indicate that he ever met Jesus while Jesus was still on earth. Much of the evidence that Jesus was a real man is in the Bible, but it’s also in the writings of other historians from that era. From the Bible, and these other writings, we know that Jesus was a carpenter, that he loved nature and children, & identified with poor people and outcasts. We know that he got tired and hungry, and that he got angry—when it was appropriate-like when someone was being mistreated in any way. His family thought he was crazy. His church thought he was a heretic, and his government executed him as a traitor. From all this, we can conclude that Jesus was a real human being. Now if we read in the Gospel According to John, in Ch. 1, we have a very good argument

Routine matters dominate school board meeting By Valerie Werkmeister MSD of North Posey School Board members met last Monday and took care of routine business as they approved several Rainy Day Fund transfers. School Supt. Dr. Todd Camp recommended the following transfers to the rainy day fund: $100,000 from the debt service fund; $50,000 from the bus replacement fund and $100,000 from the capital projects fund. In addition, they also approved Camp’s recommendation to transfer $45,000 from the textbook fund to the general fund. Junior high students will now be able to participate in a new tennis program that was approved by the board members. High School Tennis Coach Brandon Barrett submitted a proposal to form a girls’ tennis team and to use the current facilities. However, the team will not be affiliated with other sports North Posey offers. The new tennis program will be self-funded and will not receive corporation funds. According to Barrett, the team will play in the Evansville Junior High Tennis League with most matches being played in Evansville. Parents will be responsible for providing transportation and paying the $20-$30 participation fee. The money will be used towards league entry fees and a t-shirt for each participant. ISTEP testing will soon be held in the schools and Camp gave the board results from the 2009-2010 ISTEP tests. He noted that 81 percent of all high school juniors passed algebra and 75 percent passed English. North Posey students are ahead of the state average in both subjects. Camp informed board members that North Posey Athletic Boosters will purchase padded mats to place around the basketball goals at the junior high. The cost is $1,345. North Posey is in need of bus drivers. Camp made the announcement and also noted that training was recently conducted at North Posey. Anyone interested in becoming a bus driver should contact the corporation office for an application. The board also approved:

•A request by Cookin’ Friends to use the high school cafeteria on Sunday, March 6, for a fried chicken dinner. The money will go to their Relay for Life team. •A request by Lori Lingafelter, ECA Treasurer for the junior high and high school to cancel all outstanding and unpaid checks from the last two years. •A request by Carol Lupfer, Corporation Treasurer, to transfer funds from inactive accounts to the General Fund. During a routine audit, the state recommended cleaning up the books on a few inactive accounts that have not had activity in the last two years. Camp noted many of these accounts had not had any activity for the past 10 years. •A request by Camp to approve the revised 2011-2012 school calendar. The revision entails the addition of a potential make-up day to December 22. During the last few years, school has been cancelled at least one day due to weather-related conditions. Adding a make-up day to the calendar helps ease the burden of additional make-up days at the end of May. •A request by Camp to advertise for bus bids. There are currently a few buses in service with an excess of 130,000 or 140,000 miles on them. They hope to purchase three new buses, depending on how favorable the bids come in. •A request by Jenifer Neidig, high school Business Professionals of America advisor, to attend the BPA State Leadership Conference in Indianapolis from February 27 – March 1, with 15 students. •A request by Nancy Dougan, food service director, to purchase an electric tilt skillet at a cost of $10,536 from Wabash Food Service. •A request from the North Elementary staff to use the gym after school when available for an exercise class. •A request by Steve Kavanaugh, middle school principal, to hire Jeff Cobb as a volunteer wrestling coach at the junior high. The next regular board meeting will be held Monday, March 14, at 6:30 p.m. at the corporation office.

for also thinking of Jesus as God. READ JOHN 1:1-18 Let’s look at John, Ch. 1 together. V. 1 starts out: “In the beginning…” John’s talking about the VERY beginning—Creation. “In the beginning”, Jesus, the “Word”, was both “with” God and “was” God . In v. 3, “the Word”, Jesus, was both present, and taking part in, creation. We find this same thought—that Jesus is God—in other NT letters, and in other places in John’s gospel. Christians who don’t want to believe that Jesus was fully human AND fully God, believe that to be human is sinful. Also, most of us tend to think of ourselves as being totally human, and therefore very separate from God. But this is not what John wants us to believe. Reading the Bible gives us a whole new way of looking at ourselves. We learn that we are not just “lowly” humans, but that we are something very special in God’s eyes. In Genesis, Ch. 1, God makes the first humans, “in his own image” and calls this creation, “very good”. In Genesis Ch. 2, God created Adam which is Hebrew for “man”, and breathed into him, God’s very own breath, the breath of life. In both chs. 1 & 2 of Genesis, God is pleased with this human creation which is a reflection of God’s very own being. If God made us like himself and breathed his very own breath into us, then can’t we begin to realize just how precious we are to God? The first thing God told the humans to do was to take care of everything God had created. So this makes us God’s stewards & caretakers of everything that is God’s. God could have put angels in charge of everything here. Instead, he gave us that very important job. One theologian I read says people are not

“only human”, but “fully human”, that we are, and I quote, “the full representation of God’s own image, character and vocation.” I don’t know about you, but that makes me feel--holy. Knowing that we are this important to God, makes us WANT to please God in everything we do. Once I realized this, I now believe that if God has high expectations of me, then surely I should have high expectations for myself. We aren’t equals with God, but God has invested us with a special status. John v. 4 says, “What has come into being in Adam was life, and the life was the light of all people.” If John is referring to the breath of God, then the life in us, is of God. Some Christians think that being human is a curse, but from what the Bible says about how we were created, that’s just not the case. People who think that our humanity makes us unable to help ourselves and how we act, won’t try to keep their lives holy and good. But when God created us, he created us to be good—in God’s very own image. If this is so, then sin is what dehumanizes us. It’s not the other way around. When we look at Jesus, we see that his life showed what it means to be fully human AND fully divine. Jesus is our example. Jesus shows us how to live in full relationship with God. Jesus’s finest moment was when he became human and died a human death, naked and bleeding. Through Jesus, God endured death, but rose, giving us the hope that death will no longer be a problem for US either. Our hope is for an eternal, resurrected, fully human life with God. Like it was meant to be in the beginning. In v. 4, John says, “In him was life, and the life was the light of all people.” So, we can say: “In Christ, is life, and his life is my light.”

Last spring, multiple local students joined with their classmates at the University of Evansville to pitch an idea to their advisor: an idea: What if they created a program that allowed them experience in the field, while also serving an unmet need in the Evansville community? Today, that idea is a reality, as the UE students team with local physical therapists and ECHO Community Health Care to expand physical therapy services to Evansville's underserved population. The Ace CARE clinic features eight students and two licensed physical

therapists each Wednesday, serving the uninsured and homeless populations in Evansville. Many of these individuals currently are unable to have their physical therapy needs met. The program is being sponsored by a generous grant from the Southwest Indiana Area Health Education Center SWI AHEC. Local students involved in the project include: Mary Smith, a graduate student from New Harmony, IN majoring in Physical Therapy. Jennifer Saubier, a Freshman from Evansville, IN majoring in Physical Ther-

apy. "When we had the idea to do a community serviceoriented project, we immediately saw that there was a tremendous need for physical therapy among these populations," said Tim James, Ace CARE Co-Clinic Coordinator "Currently, ECHO's waiting list for patients needing physical therapy stands at 53 people; with the beginning of Ace CARE, many more of these individuals will get the help that they need." Ace CARE (the second word is an acronym for Community Action through Rehabilitation and Education)

was put together almost entirely by UE's Doctorate of Physical Therapy students, who conceived the idea, wrote the grant request for AHEC, and made the connection with ECHO. In all, about 15 students worked on planning the launch of Ace CARE, and 63 students have committed to volunteer in the clinic. Those students will be overseen by licensed physical therapists during the clinic's hours, with the licensed therapists serving in a supervisory/mentor role for the DPT students while providing care for patients with movement problems and functional limitations.

MVHS Art Guild hosts Art Camp

MVHS Art Guild hosted their 7th Annual Art Camp on Saturday February 19, 2011. Thirteen Art Guild members taught forty-one campers ranging in age from 3rd – 8th grade. Campers made duct tape wallets from a variety of colors and funky patterns. They made book illumination reliefs with glue, foil, and ink. T-shirts were made with spray paints and personalized stencils. It was a very busy and fun day for everyone involved! We are in the process of planning a fall and spring camp for next year, please stay on the lookout for information!

They used the iPad as a tool in researching mixtures throughout the lab, and the students were able to have a wealth of information at their fingertips. As a result, the mixture lab was so much more meaningful. Pictured are Max Nurrenbern (l) and Jordan Tolbert (r). Photo submitted

BUSINESS Informational 4-H, meeting is March 3 Growth necessitates Icing on Cake move Head, heart, hands, health: These four words are more commonly known as 4-H. This over 100-year-old tradition is our nation's largest youth service organization and is available at local, state, national and international levels to all youth. 4-H helps young people develop and improve valuable life skills such as self-confidence, leadership, citizenship and communication, in addition to being a fun activity for youth and families alike. Locally, 4-H is supported by Purdue Extension-Posey County, as part of the US Department of Agriculture, and by trained and approved adult volunteers in the county. There are many reasons why youth should be encouraged to join 4-H. Through 4-H, youth are exposed to fun and exciting challenges that bring about education in numerous areas, from rocket science to cake decorating. With up to

ten years of membership possible, young people can participate in fun activities, tours and trips, complete exhibits for the annual Posey County 4-H Fair, as well as experience a learning adventure of a decade (or longer) and make memories that literally last a lifetime. 4-H is a program that strives to bring out the best in youth by providing opportunities for them, assisting them in getting involved in their communities, and teaching them the power that they have to make a difference. From a kid's perspective, 4-H is fun. They make new friends, take trips, and learn about things in which they have an interest. As one 4-H member said, “4-H is fun...plus you learn stuff!” Unfortunately, many people get the wrong impression that 4-H is just for kids who are raised in the country and have access to animals. Al-

though animals are a large part of 4-H, there are hundreds of other opportunities for youth who aren't able to or have no interest in animals. To name just a few, the following 4-H projects are available for youth: Aerospace, Arts & Crafts, Collections, Computer, Foods, Family Camping, Flowers, Genealogy, Models, Photography, Sports, and Weather. To learn more about Posey County 4-H, please plan to attend a 4-H family orientation meeting on Thursday, March 3, 6-7 p.m. at the Posey County Community Center on the fairgrounds, four miles south of New Harmony and twelve miles north of Mt. Vernon on Highway 69. If you cannot attend this informational meeting but would like to learn more about 4-H, please contact Purdue Extension-Posey County by calling 812-8381331 or emailing poseyces@ purdue.edu.

By Pam Robinson Mount Vernon cake designer Michelle Rowland started her business, Michelle’s Icing on the Cake, three years ago and shared a building with the youth ministry YoungLife. Soon, however, she struck out on her own to 126 E. Second St. Now, Rowland has moved into the beautiful two-story storefront overlooking the river at 209 E. Water St. (previously occupied by Touch of Home Café). She opened the doors there for the first time just this morning and anticipates great happenings at this location. “We just keep growing,” she says. That growth started 11years ago when Rowland decided to surprise her then 3-year-old son with a cake shaped and decorated like his favorite cartoon character, Scooby Doo. She bought a special cake pan and signed up for cake decorating classes at Michael’s in Evansville. From then on, she was hooked. “I’ve learned mostly on my own,” Rowland says. Today, Michelle’s Icing on the Cake is open Tuesday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. It is well known for its specialty custom cakes for anniversaries, birthdays, weddings, office parties— you name it. Customers swear by Rowland’s cake balls and cinnamon rolls

Michelle Rowland baked fresh daily. Recently, fresh glazed doughnuts were added to the menu. Within a couple of weeks, she plans to add a lunch menu, available from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., Tuesday through Friday. The menu will feature sandwiches— chicken salad, tuna salad and cold cuts—and soup du jour. Three part-time employees along with Rowland will ensure service is fast and friendly for the lunch crowd. Customers may dine in or take carryout. A front room upstairs overlooks the river and seats 10, so Rowland en-

courages businesses to hold their lunch meetings there. Rowland and her husband Rob are proud to maintain a family friendly business in Mount Vernon. They will celebrate 23 years of marriage this year and enjoy their two children, son Quinn (14) and daughter Daycia (soon turning 6).

Harmonie State Park to receive funds for equipment State Sen. Jim Tomes (R-Wadesville) today announced Harmonie State Park, located in Posey County, will receive $25,000 to use toward much-needed updates to playground equipment. Tomes said this funding wouldn’t have been possible without the collective efforts of local campers, park manager Jim Gray and Department of Natural Resources (DNR) representative Chris Smith, who worked together to help Posey County residents have a nice, safe place for children to play. “As a state legislator, I enjoy serving as a link in

community initiatives,” Tomes said. “When I spoke with area residents as well as park personnel, I was more than happy to help contact the DNR and we were lucky enough to be put in touch with Chris Smith, who then located the funds.” Established in 1966, Harmonie State Park is located "on the banks of the Wabash," just 25 miles northwest of Evansville. The park offers a variety of outdoor activities and facilities: Boat Launch Ramp; Fishing; Nature Center; Shelters; Picnicking;

Bridle Trail; Bicycle Trail; Hiking Trails; and Swimming / Pool / Waterslide. In addition, the park has 200 electric camping sites. “Indiana’s parks preserve the state’s natural resources and venues for traditional outdoor activities,” Tomes said. “By updating and taking care of these parks, we are protecting Hoosier culture.” Tomes said Hoosiers who are interested in donating their money or time to help Indiana’s state parks may visit http://www.in.gov/dnr/ parklake/2923.htm.

Help available for farmers fighting damaged fields Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) State Conservationist Jane Hardisty today announced that Indiana NRCS has $6.5 million dollars available in Wetlands Reserve Program (WRP) funding for 2011. “Ag producers in Indiana have shown strong interest in WRP, especially since the 2008 flooding that did significant damage to crop fields along rivers and streams,” according to Hardisty. WRP is the federal government's largest wetlands restoration program. Through it NRCS provides technical and financial assistance to private landowners and Indian Tribes to restore, protect, and enhance wetlands that have been degraded or converted for agricultural uses. More than 80 percent of restorable wetlands are in private ownership. Participation in WRP is completely voluntary. NRCS pays farmers for easements on fields that go into WRP. The easement is permanent and removes the field from agricultural production. Value is assigned to the land based on whether it is “Ag Land” or “Non-Ag Land.” NRCS uses Geographic Area Rate Caps (GARC), which are set for each county in the state. The GARC values for 2011

were increased five percent from their 2010 values. For instance, in Jackson County, the Ag Land rate is $2,724, and the Non Ag Land rate is $1,634. Title to the land remains with the owner. If restoration work is needed, NRCS pays 100 percent of the costs, up to set maximum caps. “We have had strong funding in the Wetlands Reserve Program for the last several years and have been able to offer opportunities to farmers who have had flood damaged fields, or fields where production has slipped because of repeated flooding. With WRP we restore these acres to the kind of conditions they were in before they were converted for farming,” said Hardisty. “This will reduce erosion on those fields, restore wildlife habitat, and enable those farmers to make improvements in other places in their farming operations.” Estimated to have covered more than 220 million acres during colonial times, wetlands in the lower 48 states are now less than half that amount. Wetland losses in some states are more than 90 percent. More than 40 percent of federally listed species and over 50 percent of migratory birds require wetland habitats during some

portion of their life cycle. “Now is an excellent time to apply,” says Program Coordinator Jerry Roach. “We accept applications for WRP continuously. But this year, we will evaluate and rank the applications we have in hand on March 25thto see how much of the funding we are able to assign to Indiana WRP applications. We’ll know pretty quickly after that which applications are funded. All states are operating under the same funding timeframe, and states that don’t assign 100% of their funding could lose some of it. And it’ll be reassigned to states that have applications for funding. In past years we have received additional WRP dollars because we had good applications in-hand.” For more information about WRP and to find out the 2011 GARC rates for your county, visit the Indiana NRCS WRP Web site at: http://www.in.nrcs.usda. gov/programs/WRP/WRPhomepage.html . Interested producers should contact their NRCS district conservationist at a USDA Service Center to determine eligibility.

Vikings learn readiness lesson just in time for tourney By Dave Pearce There was a time in the not-so-distant past that visiting basketball teams at Gibson Southern High School expected the Titans to score somewhere between 30 and 45 points

and more times than not, come out on the winning end of the score. But on Friday evening, the North Posey Vikings got a first-hand look at what has changed at Gibson Southern. And quite frankly, the Vikings were not ready for what they faced. The Vikings were whistled for 22 fouls in the contest to 10 for the Titans and were outscored by 13 from the free throw line. Perhaps the game served as an early wakeup call for the Vikings as they now know they will have to be fired up and ready to face the winner of the Mater Dei-South Spencer match-up at Boonville on Friday night. Better to wake-up the week before the tournament than to be served the wake-up call on your first game of the tournament. “”If you look at Gibson Southern over their last 11 or 12 ballgames, they are playing really well,” North Posey Coach Matt Wadsworth said. “You have to give their kids a lot of credit and Coach Farmer a lot of credit because they went through a tough stretch and they kept battling and getting better.” The Titans played a tough man-to-man defense, cut off the penetration of North Posey point guard Dillon Davenport, and generally made the Vikings settle for less than desirable shot selection. “They did a nice job of taking the drive away from Dillon and forcing us to the outside,” Wadsworth said. “That patient dribble weave coming off the ball screens and attack-

ing off ball screens kept us off-balance.” But despite all that, the score was 11-10 at the end of the first quarter and it appeared that the Vikings would be able to turn it on later in the game and do what they have done so many times this season, expand the lead in the second half and play for the good shot and win the ball game. But Gibson Southern Coach Farmer had other ideas. “I thought Gibson Southern did a good job of controlling the tempo and taking care of the basketball tonight,” Wadsworth said of the homestanding Titans. “They did a good job of picking the right moment to drive and attack. They kept us off-balance all night and we never found a great offensive rhythm. And we gave up too many transition baskets.” But not only did the Vikings not find a rhythm, they had trouble finding the basket as well, shooting one of the lowest percentages of any game thus far this season. And when the Titans weren’t forcing the Vikings into less-than-desirable shots, they were finding a way to get ahead of the North Posey defense for easy buckets, especially in the second half. The Vikings trailed 23-22 at the half but the Titans drew first blood in the third period on a 3-pointer. But back-to-back buckets by Dillon Davenport and Jourdan Cox tied the game at 26-all and it appeared the Vikings might be making their move. But the Titans would have nothing of the

kind, outscoring the Vikings 9-2 over the next four minutes to take a 35-28 lead with about three-and-a-half minutes to go in the third period. Cameron Calvert scored inside at the 3:25 mark to pull to within 35-30 but on the ensuing possession, the Titans nailed a threepointer and as the players jostled for the rebound, Colton Motz was called for a foul and the Titans had yet another opportunity following the 3-pointer. With the score 38-30, the Vikings forced a rare turnover and Nick Scheller mailed a 3-pointer to pull to within 38-33 before the Vikings forced another turnover and Calvert scored off a rebound to pull to within 38-35. When Eric Wargel picked up his fourth foul with 1:23 to go in the third the Titans hit one of two free throws and scored the last bucket of the period to lead 41-35 at the end of three quarters. The Titans scored the first bucket of the final period, but Davenport answered. The Titans again scored a deuce but Davenport answered with back-to-back one-and-one free throws to pull to 45-41. But the Titans always seemed to have an answer. They tool a 47-41 on Calvert’s third foul before Cox knocked down a three to pull to within 47-44. Scheller was then fouled on a drive and the Vikings were within one at 47-46 with 5:23 remaining. But from that point forward, the Titans outscored the Vikings 22-11 to put the game away as Scheller, Wargel, and Calvert all fouled out in the final period. “We just have to take that game and as a coach, you always believe there is a way to get better and we have to do that,” Wadsworth said. “This was one game in a very good regular season,” Wadsworth consoled his troops following the contest. “You have to put this behind you and get back into the gym on Monday. I’m sure we can use the film of this game to find some ways for us to improve.” Davenport led the way with 18 points, many coming in the fourth quarter while Calvert had 16 and Scheller 14. The remainder of the team scored a total of nine points as Cox had five while Motz, and Cooper Martin had two apiece. NORTH POSEY: Davenport 7 4-5 18, Scheller 5 3-3 14, Calvert 7 2-2 16, Cox 2 0-0 5, Motz 1 0-0 2, Martin 1 0-0 2.Totals 23 9-10 57.

Wildcats limp into tourney By Steve Joos Two state-ranked boys’ basketball teams, each from different enrollment classes. Two blowout losses. That’s how the Mount Vernon Wildcats ended their regular season last week, with losses at Bosse 92-60, and Castle 94-62. Even though the outcomes weren’t the best, coach Gray Wilsey did feel that his team gave a good effort, at least at Castle. “Without getting into a lot of things, yeah, the score wasn’t what we wanted, but I liked the bounce and the attitude of our players,” Wilsey said. “I don’t think we’re going to face a Castle in the 3A Sectional, so right now, we’re going to focus on Memorial.” Considering what happened in the second quarter, it’s good that the Cats won’t face the Knights along the tourney trail after dropping a 94-62 decision in Paradise. Mount Vernon took an early 6-2 lead and then overcame a 9-0 Castle run to go up 1211 on a three-pointer by Jacob Steinhart midway through the first quarter, only to have the Knights rattle off another nine straight tallies to take a 20-11 lead at the break. A trey by Steinhart and free throws by Brian Koch pulled the Cats to within three points at 26-23 with 5:06 left in the second chapter. Morgan Lemond put Castle up by Mount Vernon junior Austin Goebel looks to work around the Bosse defense during five points with a bucket, but Aaron Straub Tuesday’s game. Photo by Terri Koch answered for Mount Vernon, cutting the lead

back to 28-25. The Wildcats never got any closer. Blake Simmons drained a three-pointer to double Castle’s margin and ignite a 19-2 run which gave the Knights a 47-27 lead. Steinhart scored in the closing seconds to make the halftime score 47-29 Castle. It was 67-45 after three quarters and Mount Vernon never got closer than 19 points in the second half. The Cats had trouble containing the Knights’ Eric Stutz, who pumped in a gamehigh 29 points and paced Castle. Kevin Brown added 13. Koch played a strong offensive game for Mount Vernon, leading the team with 27 points. Steinhart added 11, as Mount Vernon got its points from just about everywhere. “Brian Koch was just outstanding,” Wilsey said. “It’s fun to watch him get better with every game. He’s carrying us offensively.” Straub, Andy Henshaw and Craig Dick each scored four points, while Jason Stemple and Austin Goebel each chipped in three. River VanZant and Tyler Ritzert each put in two points, while Collin Varner and Troy Paris each put in a point. The reserves closed out their season with a 62-37 loss in the preliminary.

Wildcats swim well but Ar no match for the fast field in the state finals By Steve Joos The Mount Vernon contingent had some good times Friday night at the Indiana High School Athletic Association state boys’ swim meet, but they were up against some very fast swimmers. Even down near the end. The Wet Wildcats sent one individual (Reid Mobley) to the Indiana-Purdue Natatorium, along with the 200-medley relay team. Everybody did a good job, according to coach Larry Zoller, but they were simply in some very fast company. “The kids were near their It is off to the state finals for the Mount Vernon Dancecats as they qualified over the Sectional times,” Zoller exweend for the finals.

The kids swam well, but the competition was unbelievably good. ” Mobley was 23rd in the 100-yard backstroke with a time of: 54.04, while he and the rest of the Wet Wildcat 200-medley relay squad (Wade Mobley, Jacob Poole and Jordan Wooten) came in 25th with a time of 1:40.94. Those times were just slightly slower than the ones Mobley and the relay team registered at the Castle Sectional, but they were still close to those times, the

coach said. Unfortunately for Mount Vernon, those times were not enough for points against a state field which was very fast even down to 16 Th place. Mobley and each member of the relay team except for Wooten will be back next year and should compete for the state meet, Zoller said, as will a large contingent of incoming freshman boys and girls. Perennial state contender Carmel took the championship with 227 points, with Bloomington South (171) in second.

Jevin Redman paced the reserves with seven points, while Varner, Drake McNamara and Bryce Newman each put in six. VanZant added four points, while Ritzert, J.T. Silvers, Colton Irvin and Austin Sitzman each chipped in two. The Cats won’t face Castle in the postseason, but they might run into Bosse again. Or at least, Wilsey is hoping that they will and that the rematch will be more competitive than Tuesday’s trip to Evansville, where the Bulldogs routed the Wildcats 92-60. Fearsome freshman Jawan Lyle poured in 23 points and grabbed 10 rebounds as six Bosse Bulldogs hit double figures in a 92-60 romp over the visiting Wildcats. Lyle also had four assists as he stole the show on Bosse’s senior night and then visited with some coaches from Ohio State University on Wednesday. The Bulldogs got away from the Cats in a similar fashion to Friday’s game. Mount Vernon was only down by four points after the first quarter 20-16, but a big second period rampage by Bosse put the Bulldogs up 51-31 at the half and the game was never close after that. “We wouldn’t mind facing Bosse (in the Sectional),” Wilsey said. “We have to show that we can play harder for 32 minutes. We didn’t do that.” Despite that effort Tuesday, Wilsey was proud of his team’s effort and hoped the team could “show what they’re made of” come Sectional time on Tuesday. Koch did some damage for Mount Vernon in the form of a game-high 34 points, but the rest of the Cats struggled, especially Steinhart, who was held to a mere four points against the Bulldogs. Sam Johnson added nine points for the Cats, while Ritzert put in three. Straub, Goebel, Paris and Craig Dick each chipped in two points to round out the scoring for Mount Vernon. Thirteen was a very lucky number for Bosse, as Jalen Pendleton, Darryll Killebrew, Bo Burkhart and Denerio Clay each scored 13 tallies for the Bulldogs. Stanley Trice put in 11 points. The preliminary wasn’t that one-sided, as Bosse topped the reserve Cats 62-58.

Mount Vernon sophomore Brian Koch gets the rare Wildcat offensive rebound and attempts to get two points over the Bosse defense during Tuesday’s game.

Rappites go into ‘self-destruct’ mode in second half By Steve Joos Kyle Whitmore broke away as time ran out in the second quarter of Tuesday’s game with visiting Evansville Day School and hit a layup, giving the Rappites a three-point lead at the half of their senior night game,

23-20. The New Harmony Rappites played basketball for two quarters and then seemed to play “Mission: Impossible” for the next two. They self-destructed in the second half.

The visiting Evansville Day School Eagles scored the first 10 points of the third quarter and outscored the Rappites 23-5 in that period en route to a 56-37 thrashing. Did it seem as if someone flipped an “off” switch at

New Harmony’s Blayne Worman comes up with the loose ball. The Rappites have fallen on hard times as of late and are looking to regroup just in time for the sectional. They will face Day School on Friday. Photo by Dave Pearce

halftime as far as the Rappites were concerned? Coach Jim Little wasn’t that charitable. “Somebody flipped a ‘me’ switch is what happened,” Little said. “We came out and got the lead because we played team basketball. We worked hard, we kept our mouths shut and we came out for the second half. Right off the bat, we decided to start dribble, dribble, dribble, the stuff that got us into trouble the other games. Then we lost our cool and the technical didn’t help. That was a five-point play and it put (Day School) in a position where they put it out of reach.” That technical came with 1:17 to go in the third quarter and was slapped on Kris Scarafia after he apparently said something to teammate Andrew McDaniel that was interpreted differently by the officials. As a result, the Eagles made five trips to the free throw line (Day School’s Ethan Black was fouled while trying to shoot a three-pointer when Scarfia was whistled for the technical) and connected on each of them, Turning what had been an eight-point Eagle advantage into a 39-26 bulge. The technical occurred off an inbounds play that Little said should have been blocked and added that even thought Scarfia didn’t say anything to the referee or a Day School player. Take away the Eagles’ 23-5 third quarter rampage, Little said, and the game was much closer (advantage day School 33-32), but New Harmony hurt itself

with silly fouls and a lack of composure when adversity struck. “That’s been our m.o. (mode of operation),” the coach explained. “As soon as things are going bad, if we don’t have something happen good to stop the tide, then it just goes downhill.” The downhill slide started when Day School scored the first 10 points of the third quarter and turned that 2320 Hew Harmony halftime lead into a 30-23 edge for the Eagles. Levi Hoehn drained a three-pointer for New Harmony’s first points of the period, but the Eagles reeled off another 11 unanswered points during a stretch which included the technical foul, to open that 15-point bulge. Blayne Worman’s 18footer accounted for the rest of New Harmony’s thirdquarter offense. The team was playing a stronger team game in the first half, Little said. The coach explained that New Harmony was passing the ball well, showing patience on offense and ran the pressbreaker right, while blocking out defensively and making Day School work for its points. The Rappites took an 11-10 lead after the opening chapter and stretched it to 23-20 when Whitmore broke away after Day School

trimmed the lead to 21-20 and stuck the ball in. Then came the second half and everything that could go wrong did. For instance, the Rappites had Black in foul trouble in the first half, but the Day School guard came out after the intermission and scored all of his game-high 18 points in the second half, which may have been the difference in the game, Little said. Alex Hanke added 16 points and Basal Allaw 14 to give the Eagles three players in double figures. Whitmore was one of the players who were able to overcome the adversity, pacing the Rappites with 11 points. Little was also pleased with McDaniel, who put in 10 tallies, and Hoehn, who just went out and gave a good effort. Worman added six points, while Scarfia put in four, Hoehn three, Clint Matthews two and Elliott Lange one. The loss sent New Harmony into this weekend’s Sectional rematch with the Eagles with a 10-11 record. Little said that the team knows what it will have to do in order to be competitive with a Day School crew that could be a Sectional favorite for the next few years. That’s their mission, should they chose to accept it, along with watching what they say.

Youth turkey hunt opportunities at Fish and Wildlife properties Hunters under age 18 will have a chance to hunt 22 DNR properties for the reserved turkey hunts during the special youth wild turkey hunting season on April 2324. The youth hunts will be at Atterbury, Chinook, Crosley, Deer Creek, Fairbanks Landing, Glendale, Goose Pond, Hillenbrand, Hovey Lake, Jasper-Pulaski, Kankakee, Kingsbury, LaSalle, Minnehaha, Pigeon River, J.E. Roush, Sugar Ridge, TriCounty, Willow Slough and Winamac fish and wildlife areas, as well as at Mississinewa and Salamonie lakes. A youth hunter may be drawn for either or both hunt days, depending on the number of applicants. Youth hunters, or an adult representing them, must register in person at the property they wish to hunt from March 21–April 1, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. local time. The drawing will be held April 4. All applicants will be notified of drawing results by mail. Those wanting to sign up for Chinook, Deer Creek, Fairbanks Landing, or Hillenbrand hunts may do so at Minnehaha FWA. A limit will be placed on the number of youth hunters

allowed to hunt a property each day, to provide quality hunts. Each property will hold local early registrations and drawings at the property for the half-day hunts. Hunts will run one-half hour before sunrise until noon at properties in the Central Time Zone, and onehalf hour before sunrise until 1 p.m. on properties in the Eastern Time Zone. Applicants may sign up for only one property and must possess a valid 2011 Youth Hunting and Trapping License, Lifetime Comprehensive Hunting, or Lifetime Comprehensive Hunting and Fishing License. An Apprentice Youth Hunt/Trap license may also be used. Youth hunters who are selected for the hunt may check in at any time each day until the end of legal hunting hours for that property. Properties that do not fill their quotas during early registration may fill remaining spots during regular office hours until the youth season opens, using a drawing each morning of the hunt, or first-come, first-served each morning of the hunt. Properties will not have a daily “no-show” drawing because there is no set time that se-

lected youth hunters must check in during the morning hunts. Hunters interested in possible unfilled quotas at a property should contact that property for more information before showing up on the opening morning of the youth season. During youth wild turkey season, youth hunters can only take a bearded or male wild turkey and must be accompanied by an adult at least 18 years of age. The youth hunter may use any legal shotgun, bow and arrow, or crossbow. The adult accompanying the youth hunter must not possess a firearm, bow and arrow, or crossbow while in the field.

The adult does not need to possess a turkey hunting license unless the youth is using an apprentice license. A youth hunter may take only one bearded or male wild turkey during both the special youth season and regular spring season combined. The youth must be properly licensed to take a wild turkey and comply with all tagging and check-in requirements. You can purchase a license at IndianaOutdoor.IN.gov. For wild turkey hunting regulations, safety and tips go to dnr.IN.gov/fishwild/2343. htm . For additional information, go to dnr.IN.gov/fishwild.

Reinitz earns All-MVC honors Former Mount Vernon girls’ swim standout Jessica Reinitz received a spot on the All-Missouri Valley Conference women’s swim team after her performance in the recent conference swim meet at Carbondale. A sophomore on the University of Evansville, Reinitz finished seventh in the 200-yard butterfly at the MVC meet with a time of 2:11.26 and swam on a 400-freestyle relay team which came in third. Reinitz, Alex Howard, Christian Schmidgall and Hannah Quest swam the distance relay in 3:29.04, just .24 seconds off the school mark. The Lady Aces finished fourth in the meet with 772 and one-half points, coming in between fourth-place Southern Illinois-Carbondale (616 and one-half) and sixth place Northern Iowa (372 and one-half). Missouri State won the meet with 944 points.

Jaycee Campbell and her father John are tempted by the cookie tree in her 1-yearold classroom, the Busy Bees, at the Children's Learning Center of Posey County's 15th anniversary celebration on Tuesday, February 15.

Knowles makes pets and owners feel at home in MV Mount Vernon native Missy Knowles has endeared herself to our fourlegged friends by talking with the animals at Hawthorne Animal Clinic in Mount Vernon. For eight years now, shortly after Dr. Jason Zieren opened his veterinarian clinic, Knowles has been grooming dogs of all shapes and sizes. She found her niche when Zieren’s former groomer from Illinois wanted to stay in Illinois and invited her to train for her position. “It was very hands on,” Knowles says. “I’d be considered self-taught.” An animal lover, she enjoyed— and continues to enjoy—the work. It’s a bonus to know how to groom her own pets now, too. Knowles and her family care for quite the menagerie: Jewel the Doberman Pinscher; April the yellow Labrador Retriever; Grace the yellow Labrador Retriever; Spur the Australian cattle dog; and the grandma of them all, 15-year-old Elke the American Eskimo. Her five fi ve dogs share their home with

Cheeto, the barn cat and two horses, Tahoe and Roy. Knowles and her husband Shawn go on trail rides as often as time will permit. Time is, indeed, a precious commodity for Knowles since dog grooming is not her only employment. Since 1999, with the exception of a two-year break, she has served as a bus driver for the Metropolitan School District of Mount Vernon. Until her break from bus driving, Knowles drove the Lawrence subdivision route.

Now, she runs a route on the west end of town. “I just think of the kids I see now and they have kids,” she says. “I think that part is kind of neat.” Knowles is amazed when she considers how fast her own two sons have grown. Dakota is a freshman at her alma mater, Mount Vernon High School. Drew is an apprentice for Johnson Controls, Inc. She and her husband Shawn will celebrate their 17th wedding anniversary in September.
