New Harmony Bridge slated to close for good May 29 By Dave Pearce Portions courtesy of the Evansville Courier This will be some Memorial Day for residents of the New Harmony area. As if the closing of New Harmony School was not enough of a blow to the Town of New Harmony, in an emergency meeting Sunday night, the White County (Ill.) Bridge Commission members voted to close the aging span at noon May 29 — the day after Memorial Day. “It is very disappointing,” New Harmony Town Council President David Campbell

said on Monday morning. “Yes, it will restrict access to New Harmony from that direction but New Harmony will always be what New Harmony is. It is a quiet place where people come to reflect. The lack of a bridge is not going to change what New Harmony is.” Campbell said the announcement does not exhaust all possible options to keep the bridge open and he is hopeful that something can be done. However, since the engineering study has come back, it appears that most of the possibilities have been exhausted. Campbell acknowledged the tireless work of former University of Southern Indiana

President David Rice in his attempts to keep the bridge open. But Bridge Commission member Jim Clark said the closure is in response to the results of an April 29 inspection of the bridge by nine engineers. Sunday night’s meeting was attended by members Jim Clark and David Rice. Spud Egbert was not able to attend. New Harmony School’s final graduation exercises will be held on Thursday evening, May 24, just five days before the closing of the bridge. “They found problems with the crossbeams that connect with the outside girders,”

Clark said. “They have deteriorated more than we thought.” The inspection was carried out by four engineers from the Indiana Department of Transportation, one from the Illinois DOT, two federal inspectors and two engineers from the bridge commission. The engineers began their inspection on the approach to the bridge from the Indiana side. The “arms-length” inspection was carried out from a bucket truck. Inspectors used chipping hammers to remove rust and corrosion to inspect the steel beams. “There are

‘Win-win’ reached for New Harmony School By Dave Pearce According to information released this week, an agreement has been reached that will allow the New Harmony School Building to remain a viable part of the New Harmony Community for two more years. North Posey School Supt. Dr. Todd Camp, working with North Posey School Board President Joe Neidig, New Harmony School Board President Jim Scarafia, and New Harmony Town Council President David Campbell, have reached an agreement that would allow the Head Start program to remain in the school for two more years. The additional time could allow members of the community to have input as to how the building could be used in the future. Maintenance alone on the school building could range annually from $40,000 to $80,000 per year, barring unexpected expenses. Campbell recently appeared before the Posey County Council seeking $40,000 in funds for helping with expenses. According to Campbell, the response from the Council is another reason the school and town leaders have put their heads together to come to an agreement. “Ultimately, the Town of New Harmony wants to maintain control of property,” both Neidig and Campbell conceded. Under the proposed agreement, the Town of New Harmony would lease the building to the North Posey School Corporation for $50,000 per year for a period of two years. All parties involved agree the solution is a win-win.

Demos to host golf outing The Posey County Democrats will be holding their annual Golf Scramble on June 9, 2012 at CountryMark Course beginning at 8 a.m. To get your team registered or get additional information, please call 682-3083 or 480-3875.

Demo benefit slated A Benefit Reception will be held on May 23, 2012 for John R. Gregg for Governor of Indiana. Reception will be held at Western Hills Country Club in Mount Vernon from 5 until 7 p.m. For reservations please RSVP to: Elizabeth Murphy at (317) 698-1293 or Democrat Chairman Ed Adams at 8380035.

Legion to host Memorial Poseyville American Legion Post 278 will hold a Memorial Service at the Community Center at 10 a.m. on Monday May 28 with a joint service at the Memorial with Wadesville VFW at 11 a.m.

New Harmony will maintain control of the building and property while the building will continue to be used, for a period of two years, and the agreement will give the community some time to come up with some other viable options for the school. Campbell indicated that it could be similar to the situation at Hedges School in Mount Vernon which closed last year. Several tenants have moved into that building and it appears to have a bright future. Under the agreement reached with North Posey, the North Posey School system would have had a fouryear obligation to maintain the building and with the Head Start Program remaining in the building, the school corporation would have only to help subsidize only a portion of the facility. North Posey will have complete rights to the inside of the building from a leaseholder’s standpoint. New Harmony attorney Nathan Maudlin is vacationing in Scotland this week while North Posey attorney Bill Bender has been working on the agreement with Maudlin, primarily by email. The agreement was signed on Monday afternoon. “It’s a good thing for North Posey but it is a good thing also for the Town of New Harmony because ultimately, they want control of the building,” Neidig concluded. “This agreement will allow us to focus on operating the Metropolitan School District of North Posey for the common good of the students and the community.”

By Valerie Werkmeister For nearly a quarter of a century, Larry Lewis has been looking out for the best interests of North Posey students. After June 30, that will all come to an end. Lewis has decided to resign from his post on the MSD of North Posey School Board. He read an emotional resignation letter during last week’s May 14, board meeting. He cited his reason for leaving due to the consolidation of New Harmony School Corporation with North Posey’s. “As a member of the MSD of North Posey five-member school board, I am vacating my position to allow a representative of the New Harmony School Board a position on the consolidated board,” Lewis said. Lewis added that he felt it was in the best interests of North Posey schools and the community to make the move. He was elected in May 1988 and has helped oversee many major school renovation projects including the addition of air conditioning at the high school and elementary schools as well as the new band room. He was also proud to serve when the last wing of the junior

Larry Lewis high was added in 1995-96. Other than Superintendent Dr. Todd Camp, he has served with three other superintendents including Byron Brenton, Ernie Rapp and John Wood. Board president Joe Neidig thanked Lewis for his years of dedicated service. Two new administrative positions were created at Camp’s request. Board members approved a project manager and Curriculum, Testing and Secondary Evalua-

tor position. The project manager will oversee the summer projects including the high school science wing renovations, the North Elementary (NE) fifth and sixth grade wing renovation, the HVAC computer renovation at NE and the tennis, track and parking lot improvements at the high school. The project manager will also work toward a resolution with the water problems at the junior high and high school. The Curriculum, Testing and Secondary Evaluator position was created out of a need to ensure compliance with state regulations regarding ever-changing curriculum mandates, to review data from state mandated testing and assist each building principal with the new state evaluation system procedures known as RISE. RISE is the new law that evaluates teachers in an objective way to provide feedback on their teaching skills. It will provide school corporation with the flexibility to pay teachers based on their experience and performance in the classroom. To assist with these assessments,

By Dave Pearce A Vanderburgh County woman who had been recently released from jail learned this week that she will now be facing four more years behind bars. She was sentenced on May 14 and pled guilty to charges of Battery by Body Waste, Battery Resulting in Bodily Injury, Resisting Law Enforcement, Disorderly Conduct, and Public Intoxication. According to information released from Posey County Nichoel Roy Prosecutor Travis Clowers, the sentence is the result of an incident which occurred on Feb. 18, 2012, at 4817 Slim Pond Road in Posey County. According to the Probable Cause Affidavit, Nichoel A. Roy, whose home address was listed as 2937 Broadway Ave., Evansville, Ind., was arrested after Posey County Sheriff Deputy Bill Denning responded to a call at the residence of Jeff Wilkerson on Slim Pond Road. Denning said when he arrived at the residence, he saw Wilkerson sitting on the front steps of the porch of his home. Denning stated that he made repeated attempts to get Roy’s attention as she stood over Wilkerson and cursed and yelled at him. Denning indicated that Roy disregarded his pleas that he was a member of the sheriff’s department and that she should turn around and face him. After repeated attempts, Denning said he take her arm and walk her down the steps and asked her numerous times to calm down. He immediately noticed a strong smell of alcohol and was having trouble even standing up. Wilkerson told sheriff’s deputies that Roy was a friend of his brother’s and he had only agreed to let her come to his property because she indicated she had no place else to go after being released from jail. By this time, Sheriff’s Deputy Dustin Seitz had arrived at the scene in an effort to help Denning and the woman. But the woman was intoxicated and continued to yell and curse at Wilkerson. A few minutes later, two other sheriff’s deputies arrived and noticed that Roy had urinated on her clothing. She was informed she was being arrested for disorderly conduct. Despite vocal and physical resistence, the two assisting deputies were eventually got Roy into the back seat of a patrol car but she refused to allow deputies to buckle her into the seat. Denning said two deputies attempted to buckle the seat belt while he got into the front seat of the car, attempting to buckle the belt. Denning said Roy lunged at him and then spit in his face, spraying saliva on his eyebrow, the brim of his hat , and the collar of his shirt. Denning then left the vehicle to get a spit hood but when he re-

Preschool lessons: they are not just for kids The life of a particular preschool child has been on my mind all week after talking with Jan Nesbitt, retiring director of Susanna Wesley Preschool in Mount Vernon. About 13 years ago this fall, at age 3 (going on age 4), my daughter Jessica attended Susanna Wesley Preschool. We both learned important life lessons from her early childhood education. I’d like to say I remember all of Jessica’s preschool days vividly. Honestly, though, one day stands out among all the rest. A couple of weeks into the school year, lead teacher Michelle Wheaton pulled me aside after class. “Jessica needs to work on sharing,” she told me plainly. I felt my face flush. Jessica’s two big brothers are, after all, 20 years her senior. Both of them had started families of their own by the time Jessica turned three. After what seemed like an interminable silence, I sputtered something like, “It’s because she’s like an only child.” I was thinking far worse: “Jes-

sica needs to share. She’s not satisfied with enough. She’s headed for a life of crime.”

LIVING FOR THE JOURNEY BY PAM ROBINSON Mrs. Wheaton seemed to read my overreacting mind when she emphasized, “They ALL have to work on sharing. They’ll learn.” Her remark didn’t really calm me. “Dear God,” I thought, “there goes our future.” Older than the average mother, my middle-aged self wanted nothing more than to be the perfect parent and raise the perfect child. I was puzzled about where I’d gone wrong. “What about her time in daycare,” I wondered. “What about those play dates with her church pals?” I never thought I’d have to say it, but my child needed to get a social life.

As the weeks sped by, ALL the children indeed learned to share. Much to my relief, Jessica was no exception. When preschool graduation rolled around, ALL the children, including my darling daughter, knew how to pass the snacks and to take a proper turn. As every mature adult knows, such social knowledge benefits a child as much as mastering the pre-K curriculum. Nice guys may finish last in the cut-throat competitive world of six figures or higher, but most of us live in a different world. We earn far less and live by the Golden Rule. We all can afford to look out for one another. We are wise to teach our children that a selfish brat is liked no more than a smartaleck. Jessica learned this valuable lesson, of course, as much from the responses of her peers as from adult teaching. Kids gravitate toward their kind, thoughtful playmates. As with her academics, Jessica (and her friends) mastered the social graces at an earlier age than I did.

Please remember on Memorial Day “And so my fellow Americans: Ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country.” This famous phrase — spoken by former President John F. Kennedy — is echoed by the intentions and actions of our country’s service members every day. May is a month for honoring the brave men and women of the past and present who serve our great country in uniform. We just observed Armed Forces Week, May 12-19, and are preparing to celebrate Memorial Day on May 28. I have a deep appreciation for the sacrifices these great Americans make for our freedoms, because the feeling of responsibility to one’s country runs in my family. I am proud to have served with the 101st Airborne in Vietnam, myself, along with many young soldiers during that war. More than 1,532 Indiana service members lost their lives and 300,000 were wounded during that time. It is very satisfying to see our nation now recognizing and paying honor to those who serve. Even though it’s been 36 years since the last of these veterans returned home, Indiana formally recognized those men for the first time in state history this year — dedicating March 30 as “Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans Day.” Today, I say thank you, Vietnam Vets, for your service. I consider myself lucky to also be the proud father of two Hoosier service members — one of my daughters served in the U.S. Army at the rank of staff sergeant and my son served in the Marines for four years at the rank of sergeant. He is now an active first lieutenant in the Indiana National Guard. I can relate to Hoosier parents who watch their children put their lives on hold — and, often,

Gavel Gamut’s Men do not form book clubs. Book clubs are exclusive to the gender that brought us via curiosity and temptation to forbidden fruit. Men feel no need to gather around glasses of chardonnay in living rooms and restaurants to discuss fictional activities of fictional characters. Women are drawn to discuss the improbable exploits and foibles of flawed detectives, attorneys and adventurers at odds with kinky antagonists. Whereas men are satisfied to read about such maladjusted misanthropes alone, women, such as Peg, my sister, Jane, and our neighbor, Bonnie, are compelled to filter their analyses through several fellow distaffers. It is as if they cannot justify investing countless hours devouring thin characters disjointedly popping in and out of nonsequitus plots unless they are reassured their friends are similarly engaged. Men feel no need to have other men, or anyone for that matter, bless their opinions with positive reinforcement. First of all, they have no doubt they are right regardless of the

on the line — for our country. It’s amazing to see the passion this younger generation has to serve, also during a time of war that has received much scrutiny. During “Operation Iraqi Freedom” and “Operation Enduring Freedom” alone, we’ve seen more than 6,300 U.S. military casualties. Today, I say thank you, young veterans, for your service. Still, there are many more we can thank for the selfless sacrifices they’ve made for us — for you and for me, for our families and for future generations of Americans to come. Thank you, World War Veterans, for your service. Thank you, Korean War Veterans, for your service. Thank you, Gulf War Veterans, for your service. Thank you, proud parents, wives and loved ones, for the sacrifices you make. I could go on and on, but the point is simple: Let’s honor these individuals for all they’ve done. Let’s honor them for asking what they could do to make our country a better place — to make the world a better place. Today, I call on Hoosiers to really take the time to pause and reflect — take a break from your busy lives and ask yourselves, “What can I do for my country?” Not everyone has the calling to serve in the military. But, we can find small ways to thank those who do and remember those who did. Maybe it’s laying a wreath on a service member’s grave. Maybe it’s sending a care package overseas to encourage those currently fighting for us. Maybe it’s literally saying “thank you” when you see veterans or their families out and about. Let’s take the time to honor those brave men and women we’ve lost and those who are still serving us today. May God bless our veterans, military members and their families.

GAVEL GAMUT BY JUDGE JIM REDWINE important things to do. For example, there are ball games, fishing trips, golf trips, hunting, and beating a drum in the forest, none of which require talking. Of course, they do often require beer. That brings us to the common denominator of all women’s book clubs, wine. Apparently there are certain rules that must be followed by any covey of literary ladies and rule number one is no conversation can occur until both a book and a bottle of wine are opened. Peg’s book club, which is actually an electronic Nook club, includes our daughter, Heather, and several other family members. They meet once a month; apparently this is another rule as my sister’s club and Bonnie’s too follow this rigid

the dubious honor of teaching relational boundary lines at the same time she was pointing out coloring book boundary lines. Aged 5 and 6 years old, my classmates and I, even if a bit older than Jessica and her peers, learned quickly enough how to stay within the lines. We ALL, the best I can remember, survived this important rite of passage and in due time were promoted to second grade. The fun had just begun. Now perhaps more than ever, we need safe, creative places like Susanna Wesley to foster cooperation in our kids. Children as well as

Hoosiers to recognize dedication of emergency medical services To focus Hoosiers’ attention on the commitment emergency medical personnel make to the communities they serve, the Indiana Department of Homeland Security (IDHS) is joining national, regional, state and local organizations to support EMS providers. Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels has proclaimed the week of May 20-26, 2012 as Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Week to recognize the countless lives saved by quality early medical treatment from the men and women of the emergency medical services community. This year’s theme is "EMS: More Than a Job: A Calling.” “EMS week brings together local communities and medical personnel to promote safety and honor the dedication of those who provide the day-to-day lifesaving services of medicine’s front line,” said IDHS Chief of Staff Mike Garvey. “It also provides an opportunity for individuals and families to reinforce safety precautions like wearing bike helmets.” Garvey is an EMS professional with more than 30 years of experience. The EMS system in Indiana is regulated by the state EMS Commission, a governor-appointed board whose policies and procedures are supported by IDHS. IDHS provides training and credentials to all first responders throughout the state, and certifies training institutions and all emergency medical transports. Regular

inspections are conducted to ensure that all required medical equipment on those transport vehicles is present and properly maintained. Emergency care personnel, including emergency physicians, emergency nurses, emergency medical technicians, paramedics, firefighters, educators and administrators, engage in many hours of specialized training to improve their lifesaving skills. Members of emergency medical services teams are available 24 hours a day,

seven days a week to respond to the needs of their communities, greatly improving the survival rate and recovery of those who experience sudden illness or severe injury.

schedule. Jane’s club includes friends she has enjoyed and relied upon for many years. They have shared good and tough times and are like an extended family. Bonnie’s group has met in various homes and sundry places and has expanded their activities beyond the discussion of books. In fact, I am aware they have invited interesting authors of fine novels as guest speakers; I applaud their opinions in this regard. But let’s return to the phenomenon of why there are only female book clubs. Perhaps the answer can be found by considering the historical differences between men and women. In order to narrow the issues why don’t we just concentrate on one representative couple, Peg and me. If we had been living in Alexandria, Egypt in 48 BC when the library burned, our likely differing reactions might shed some light on the issue of female only book clubs. Peg would have been devastated, but, if the Olympics had been on at that time, I would not have noticed until the games were concluded.

from under the floor to drain it away from the house. Also, before the floor is poured, a 6 mil or better plastic sheathing should be laid to act as a vapor barrier. Both the outside and the inside of the poured concrete walls need to be waterproofed. Styrofoam panels, two inches or thicker, are placed against the outside of the walls after they are waterproofed. Next gravel, a foot in width, is poured into the space up to the ground level. Drainage, drainage, drainage! Important if you are living in a basement, which is essentially what a berm house is. I studied the land and sun movements a year before building. Placement for passive solar heating was important since the front of the house would have large windows to capture the lower ray’s of the winter sun. A two foot overhang shielded the windows in the summer. There were no windows across the back of the house. Instead, solar tubes were installed in the roof. These are domed tubes with refractory plates in them that bring an amazing amount of light into a dark area. My friends who used my windowless bathroom in the daytime were always asking me how to turn off the lights. Two by fours were placed on their two inch sides and a sub flooring was laid. But not until the plumbing was placed under the sub flooring. Some berm houses have plumbing under the poured






adults spend so much time in solitary pursuits—plugging in the earphones and listening to the iPod or playing a computer game. Experts wonder now if we ALL spend more time with “virtual” friends, for example, on the cellphone or Facebook than with real companions. In our attempts to negotiate the fast track, perhaps we should consider, as author Robert Fulghum has suggested, holding hands to cross the street. It may be as much an advantage as interacting with our GPS for proper direction. We might then look more closely at where we’re actually going.

“Your berm house must be toasty warm and keep your fuel heating costs nominal,” I said enviously to an acquaintance who lives close to Mt. Vernon. Her reply was, “No, it’s hard to heat.” My thoughts were, oh no, it wasn’t built right. A berm house built properly is an extremely energy efficient house. I began collecting and reading books about berm and underground houses back in the 70’s. There are some important aspects of building a berm house that I‘ve learned. Mother Earth News has a plethora of books on the subject listed on the internet. Research was important before building my “green sanctuary.” A berm house is not an underground house. The biggest difference is in the roof. Soil or sod is placed on a steel reinforced roof for an underground house. Most berm houses look like a conventional house from the front. The style of the roof can vary but nontheless there will be no goats on a berm house roof. For a berm house to be energy efficient and safe to live in, care must be taken. Moisture and air quality can be major problems. Before a concrete floor is poured, piping for a radon removal system should be installed, even here in Indiana. If you look at radon spots on a map, SW Indiana has its fair share. As in any newer built house, pipes should be installed to remove water

Since my siblings are two decades older than I am, I, too, was raised like an only child. Until my inauguration to school in first grade, I had little exposure to kids other than my nieces and nephews, close to my age. The one time I attended a preschool friend’s birthday party, I woke up covered in hives the next day. Watching televised classes of preschool children on “Romper Room” just hadn’t prepared me for group activity. Of course, that incident happened long ago—near the time of stone wheels. My beloved first grade teacher, Mrs. Rush, received


concrete floor or overhead under the roof. The pipes under the sub flooring seemed best to me since the pipes would not freeze and would be more easily accessible if the need arose. Instead of trying to wallboard the concrete walls, I applied a colored stucco. No mold was going to creep and grow behind concealed spaces! During the years I lived in my berm house I used only one-fourth tank of fuel and a cord of wood to heat it each winter. And the winter low temperatures averaged in the 20’s F. If I were to build again, geothermal heating would be a strong consideration. There was no need for an air conditioner in the summer. When the inside and the outside temperature reached the same--usually about 70 degrees, I closed the insulated curtains to keep out the early morning sun. Phenomenal energy savings! Although I wished and dreamed about it, there was no earthly way to bring my berm house back to Indiana with me. It would have worked well here. Where are we advised to seek safety during tornado warnings? Right, the basement. When I see all the tornado damage in Oklahoma and elsewhere and the people talking of rebuilding, I wonder what they could build that would be as safe as a berm house. A berm house may not be possible in most towns, or could it? Could a berm house village be in the future?

Woman sentenced. from Page 1A two deputies began taking Roy to the Posey County Jail and after some evidence, started toward the jail. On the way to the jail, Roy was able to get out of the handcuffs and had slapped one of the deputies on the side of his head. The vehicle was stopped and the deputies were able to get the woman back under control. The group continued to the jail where Roy registered a .34 blood alcohol content. She was then taken to Deaconess Hospital to be evaluated to get medical clearance for booking into the Posey County Jail. Denning later learned that the woman is infected with Hepatitis B. Hepatitis B infection can be spread through having contact with the blood, semen, vaginal fluids, and other body fluids of someone who already has a hepatitis B infection. Infection can be spread through: Direct contact with blood in health care settings; Sexual contact with an infected person; Tattoo or acupuncture with unclean needles or instruments; Shared needles during drug use; or Shared personal items (such as toothbrushes, razors, and nail clippers) with an infected person.

Most of the damage from the hepatitis B virus occurs because of the way the body responds to the infection. When the body’s immune system detects the infection, it sends out special cells to fight it off. However, these disease-fighting cells can lead to liver inflammation. “Due to the seriousness of the crime, my office did not negotiate any type of plea agreement with the defendant,” Clowers said in a prepared statement. “She ultimately pled guilty to each count without a plea agreement.” She was sentenced by Judge James Redwine to four years on Count 1. Oneand-a-half years on count 2, One year on count 3, and six months each on counts four and five. All the sentences will run concurrently, however, all of her sentence will be served in prison. Clowers said several law enforcement officers attended the sentencing hearing to show their support for fellow officer Denning. “It is my hope that the defendant’s sentence will serve as a warning to anyone who believes they can hit, spit on, or attack law enforcement in any way,” Clowers stated. “It simply will not be tolerated.”

INGREDIENTS 2-3 Tbsp unsalted butter 1 medium onion, finely chopped (about 1 cup) 2-3 cups finely chopped, cooked corned beef 2-3 cups chopped cooked potatoes, preferably Yukon gold Salt and pepper Chopped fresh parsley

DIRECTIONS 1. Heat butter in a large skillet (preferably cast iron) on medium heat. Add the onion and cook a few minutes, until translucent. 2. Mix in the chopped corned beef and potatoes. Spread out evenly over the pan. Increase the heat to high or medium high and press down on the mixture with a metal spatula. 3. Do not stir the potatoes and corned beef, but let them brown. If you hear them sizzling, this is good. Use a metal spatula to peak underneath and see if they are browning. If nicely browned, use the spatula to flip sections over in the pan so that they brown on the other side. Press down again with the spatula. If there is too much sticking, you can add a little more butter to the pan. Continue to cook in this manner until the potatoes and the corned beef are nicely browned. 4. Remove from heat, stir in chopped parsley. Add plenty of freshly ground black pepper, and add salt to taste. Serve with fried or poached eggs for breakfast. Yield: Serves 4-6

The family of Dorothy A. Foster will be celebrating her 100th Birthday on June 6th, 2012. Since this is a milestone that very few of us will reach, our family would like to gather together at Burdette Park on May 26thh to honor this wonderful mother and auntie. I admire my mother because she was de-termined to graduate high school. It mightt not seem like a lot to us now, but back in thee 1920’s there were no black high schools inn Mt. Vernon. Blacks were only given an 8thh grade education and everyone had to travel too Evansville, IN to complete their high schooll years. In addition to that they had to furnishh their own transportation to and from schooll every day. So each day was a test of her de-termination to complete her education whichh she did at Lincoln High School. My mother also did not marry young likee most women of her time. She waited until she was 24 years old (that would make her almost an old maid according to statistics) when she married my father John Fred Foster. She was a woman that did not give under peer pressure, but

waited until she found what she wanted. She raised 5 children, Barbara, Fred Louis, Sandy, Albert and Darlene (me - baby girl) with a soft hand and a loving h heart. All the nieces and nephews knew that A Aunt Dorothy’s house was a place to eat and p anytime they wanted. To all the neighplay b borhood children the name Ms. Foster (she r required respect) was a place of refuge to enj your summer vacations. To this day she joy s loves the children because she bypasses still m and asks where the grandbabies are. me My mother may not have had a Masters, or D Doctors degrees, written a book, won the Nob prize or won any awards that I can think ble o but what she taught me about character of, a giving of yourself to others will be with and m always. This woman, my mother, Dorome t Foster is 100 years old. Thank you Mom thy f all ll the h wisdom i for and laughs you have given us. Because we never recognize great people until they are gone, I wanted to give you your flowers while you are yet living.

are problems all along the bridge,” Clark said. “Overall, the cost to make repairs was more than we could imagine.” One of Clark’s biggest concerns is the possibility the commission could be sued if the bridge fails and someone is injured or killed. “Some have been very bullheaded about closing the bridge,” Clark said. “The fact is, with the information we have been provided about the condition of the bridge, we could be sued through errors and omissions.” Rice, chairman of the commission, said engineers have estimated the bridge needs about $8.4 million in repairs. Clark said he believes the bridge could be made safe with about $2 million in repairs. “We could put the understructure in good condition and it would last a few years,” Clark said. “However, we would still have an old bridge that is substandard in width, with an old deck that is rotting.” The bridge deck is extremely rough and cannot be made smoother by milling, Clark said. He says the reinforcement bars in the deck are too close to the surface to allow milling. There is currently a 25 mph speed limit on the bridge, and vehicles are asked to keep a 300-foot separation. The commission chose not to close the bridge immediately in order to notify state and local agencies of closure. “First, we need time to get the signs up on both sides of the river,” Clark said. “Next, we have to notify all of the area ambulance

services and fire departments that the bridge is no longer available.” Clark added that he hopes an agreement can be made with the White County Ambulance service to handle emergency calls on Ribeyre Island, which is in Posey County, Ind., but only accessible through White County, Ill. The New Harmony Bridge opened to traffic in 1930. In 1941, Congress established the three-member bridge commission and handed it control of the bridge. In 1998, Congress eliminated the mechanism that allows for appointments to the commission. If the current members were to quit or die, the bridge would have to close because there would be no one left to oversee its operation. On September 25, 2007, the bridge was closed after inspectors found a crack in a support pier on the west side of the bridge. The closure lasted 8 months, reopening in April 2008. The four-span bridge links Illinois Route 14 in White County to Indiana 66 in Posey County. The deck is only 20 feet wide with a 36-ton load limit. Farmers, farm service companies, oil producers and Illinois residents commuting to jobs in Evansville routinely use the bridge. When the bridge closes, travelers crossing the Wabash River will be forced to use either the Interstate 64 bridge south of Grayville or the bridge that links Illinois Route 141 to Indiana 62 west of Mount Vernon, Ind.

"For more than 40 years, studying at Harlaxton College has been a definitive part of the University of Evansville experience. Where else can students live and study in a grand manor house, travel throughout the United Kingdom and Europe on weekends, and form lasting ties with local residents?" said Earl Kirk, UE director of study abroad. "We're thrilled to provide this life-transforming educational experience for these local stu-

dents, and we wish all of the Summer 2012 Harlaxton students a summer of learning, discovery, and growth." The five-week summer session at Harlaxton includes a range of classes in the liberal arts and pre-professional studies. Optional weekend trips to destinations such as London, Paris, York, Cambridge, and Edinburgh provide students with opportunities to engage the culture in Britain and beyond.

BUSINESS Legals dominate Mount Vernon Council meeting By Pam Robinson Legals dominated the Mount Vernon City Council meeting on Monday, May 14. After a brief public hearing with no comments, council passed the second reading, then suspended the rules and also passed the third reading for ordinance 12-08, calling for $320,000 in additional appropriations from the county optional income tax, or COIT, fund. Of the total appropriations, $300,000 will cover engineering services, including the entire $202,000 grant match for Phase 2 of riverfront development, and $20,000 will boost the Motor Vehicle Highway Fund. Council also approved resolution 1209 for a temporary loan in the amount of $250,000 from the Rainy Day Fund. Of that total, $200,000 will be placed in the General Fund while $50,000 will be placed in the Parks and Recreation budget. Rezoning ordinance 12-07 was approved as well after council passed it on second reading, suspended the rules, and also passed it on third reading. The ordinance calls for the rezoning of the old Tygart Funeral Home property from office back to residential. Later, Councilwoman Becky Higgins cast the sole “no” vote on first reading of the ordinance to move city council meetings to alternating Thursdays as specified for board of works meetings. Council will decide if it needs to meet the two additional meetings per year after board of works. Finally, council passed on first reading an ordinance to replace angled parking spaces at the exit to the Posey County Courthouse

with parallel parking. In other business: • Council cancelled its second meeting of the month scheduled for Monday, May 28, in observance of the Memorial Day holiday. • It was the consensus of council when acting as Water Utility Board that Water Superintendent Chuck Gray proceed with hiring Tim Grist as meter reader. It was noted that Grist has completed all background checks with good results. • Signs will be posted at the riverfront to remind dog owners, “Clean up after your dog.” Council will look into the feasibility of also setting up doggie stations with bags for disposing of dog waste. • Upon the recommendation of City Attorney Beth McFadin Higgins, council decided against an ordinance to regulate the operation of motorized wheelchairs and similar devices since the Americans with Disability Act says these devices may go wherever people safely walk. • It was announced that GAF will purchase, and the street department will post, directional signs to help semi-truck drivers find their way to GAF. Complaints have come to council that truckers are losing their way and ending up on West Lincoln, Emmick, Lawrence and Vista—all strictly residential streets. The Mount Vernon City Council will meet again Monday, June 11, 2012, 7 p.m. in the City Hall Annex. The meeting scheduled for Monday, May 28, has been cancelled in observance of the Memorial Day holiday.

Local food drive results help community About 4300 pounds of food were collected during the National Association of Letter Carriers’ Food Drive last Saturday in Mount Vernon.

There was a food drive in New Harmony this year also. Food items could be put in a box at the post office and were collected each day by United Way of Posey County volunteers. Items remain in the New Harmony area for distribution. According to volunteers, 116 pounds of food were collected.

USDA's Farm Service Agency announces report deadlines Julia A. Wickard, State Executive Director of USDA’s Farm Service Agency (FSA) in Indiana today reminded producers to submit their annual report of acreage to their local FSA county office to meet FSA program eligibility requirements. "Producers must file their reports accurately and timely for all crops and land uses, including prevented and failed acreage, to ensure they receive the maximum FSA program benefits possible," said Wickard. “FSA’s employees stand ready to assist producers during the busy spring season.” Accurate acreage reports are necessary to determine and maintain eligibility for most programs administered by FSA, such as the Direct and Counter-Cyclical Payment Program (DCP) and the Average Crop Revenue Election Program (ACRE). Further, these acreage reports allow producers to provide current information about crops planted and land use. This information can greatly assist producers in demonstrating eligibility for future conservation and disaster relief. Acreage reports are considered timely filed when completed by the applicable final crop reporting deadline. General crop reporting deadlines for Indiana are: • May 31 – Fall and spring seeded small grains in Southern Indiana (see attached map) • July 15 – Spring seeded crops and CRP for entire state • July 15 – Fall and spring

seeded small grains in Northern Indiana (see attached map) Prevented acreage must be reported within 15 calendar days after the final planting date. Failed acreage must be reported before the disposition of the crop. Producers should contact their county FSA office if they are uncertain about reporting deadlines. Late-filed provisions may be available to producers who are unable to meet the reporting deadline as required.

Reports filed after the established deadline must meet certain requirements to be accepted and may be charged late fees. Producers should visit their county FSA office to complete acreage reporting. For questions on this or any FSA program, including specific crop reporting deadlines and planting dates, producers should contact their county FSA office. More information on FSA programs is available at:

Lady Viking tennis team wins first sectional title ever By Steve Joos Shelby Ackerman had a rough go of it at last week’s Mount Vernon Sectional girls’ tennis tournament. The North Posey first singles players ran into two of the area’s toughest, losing to Central’s Jessica Kim on Thursday and Claire Alvey of Mater Dei Friday. They will be playing in the individual tournament from here on out. Ackerman will be with her teammates—in the Evansville Regional. The Lady Vikings rallied to win the first Sectional girls’ tennis title in school history Friday, taking the last three spots to clinch a 3-2 upset victory over defending champion Mater Dei at the Mount Vernon Junior High courts. That followed a 3-2 win over Central in Thursday’s semifinals. The North Posey boys have won four Sectionals, but this was the first for the Lady Vikings. “All of my girls did well,” Coach Brandon Barrett said. “At one and two singles, we struggled, but they went out and they tried their best. Two doubles had a really close one. I knew we had to win that second set tie break. We would have been in trouble if it went to a third set. Bri Brown at third singles did an unbelievable job against a four-year varsity starter at singles and she’s only been playing varsity singles for six matches.” Kendall Reidford and Wendi Simpson pulled out a 7-5, 3-6, 6-2 decision over Victoria Richmond and Jenna Smith at first doubles Friday afternoon to clinch the crown for North Posey, capping their comeback. Alvey made quick work of Ackerman at first singles, winning 6-1, 6-1, while Katherine Bender was even more dominating at second singles, beating Natalie Thomas 6-0, 6-0, but then the Lady Vikings started their comeback, winning almost in order. Bri Brown started the rally, beating Emily McAtee 7-6(75), 6-1 at third singles, finishing off her Lady Wildcat opponent just seconds before the second doubles duo of Lindsey Droege and Megan Durcholz finished off Megan Steinkamp and Jamie Logel 7-5, 7-6(7-5) to turn what was a 2-0 deficit into a 2-2 tie. Barrett switched Brown to singles five matches prior to the Sectional and that decision paid off, as she took a first-set tiebreaker and then put away McAtee. Reidford and Simpson played their second straight three-

New Harmony Lady Rappites win final regular-season tourney By Steve Joos “If you don’t hit, you can’t win.” That’s been New Harmony softball coach Jeff Moore’s mantra all season and that was the case early last week when Boonville came calling. The visiting Boonville Lady Pioneers struck for seven runs in the top of the first inning and never looked back as they routed the Lady Rappites 12-0 in five innings under the 10-run rule “If you don’t get any hits, you’re not going to win the game,” Moore said. “And (Boonville’s pitcher) no-hit us. She didn’t give up a hit. We had seven or eight base runners, but we couldn’t get the hit when we needed it.” It’s a mantra that New Harmony fans are probably tired of hearing, Moore said, but it has been all too often the case this year, the coach said. The Lady Rappites were swinging, but they weren’t able to make contact or when they did, were simply hitting pop-ups or grounders against a hurler that Moore didn’t think was all that fast, but had a good change-up and that may have kept the team off balance. And they were in a deep hole early in the contest, as Boonville followed up the seven-

run first inning with three more in the top of the second to lead 10-0. New Harmony twice loaded the bases, in the second inning on walks to Abby Deckard, Madison Worman and Jessica DeckardMills, but Alyssa Scherzinger struck out to end that threat. They juiced the sacks again in the fourth, on three straight two out walks, only to have a pop fly to short end that threat. Two more runs in the top of the fifth salted the game away for the Lady Pioneers. Moore felt bad for the team, adding that the Lady Rappites are a better team than their record suggests. “We scored the outfield back and they hit several right in front of us,” Moore said. “We moved them in and they hit several over our heads. You can’t win.” Errors were another problem, Moore added. After a series of multiple miscues cost the Lady Rappites both ends of a doubleheader at Shoals, the infield committed more errors against Boonville. The team may be distracted by some outside concerns, the coach said, most prominently the closing of school, but he added that

Mount Vernon Wildcat Harris to swim, study in Birmingham By Steve Joos Birmingham Southern College will have its first swim team this fall and Mount Vernon’s Emily Harris will be part of it. Harris signed a national letter of intent on Wednesday to attend the Division III school in Birmingham, Ala., and swim for the new Lady Panthers’ team this winter. “It was an opportunity for me to get ready for med school,” Harris, who plans to major in biology and pre-medicine, said. “It’s a brand new team that’s starting next year.” Mount Vernon swim coach Larry Zoller said that the coaches are projecting Harris in the 50-, 100- and 200-yard freestyles, adding that the new team and Division III level are areas where she will be very competitive. “I know that Division III swimming is close to what we do here,” Harris said, citing Mount Vernon’s Emily Harris signs her letter of intent to swim for Birmingham- Mount Vernon’s stringent training regimen.

be competitive because of that.” Harris chose BSC over Murray State and Kentucky, both of which she considered for academics only. She is the daughter of Wes and Nancy Harris. “It’s a brand new program,” Zoller said. “The coach there (Toby Wilcox) used to coach at (the University of Evansville) and we know him from there. It’s going to be a great opportunity for Emily to compete at the level she’ll be successful at.” Harris hasn’t been the state meet threat other swimmers have, Zoller said, but she has been very important to our success and the Lady Wet Wildcats’ ability to compete at a high level. She comes on well with the taper, the coach added, explaining that she will now contribute earlier in the season.

Three from North Posey to study, play football at Rose-Hulman By Steve Joos Colton Motz, Bryce Koester and Kurt Siebert all want to be engineers. Rose Hulman Institute is one of the best engineering schools in the country. So all made it public on Tuesday that they will be “Engineers.” Only in this case, “Engineers” is in reference to the Terre Haute school’s football team. The three North Posey gridiron standouts announced their intentions to attend Rose Hulman and play for the Engineers. “I’ve always wanted to be an engineer,” Motz, quarterback for the Vikings’ 6-1 PAC champions, said. “And I knew that Rose is the number one engineering school in the country. And when they offered football, I knew that’s where I wanted to go.” The Engineers run the spread offense, which is similar to the one run at North Posey. Their quarterback this year, Mitch Snyder, will be a senior, so Motz hopes to work hard this season and earn more playing time in the future. Motz connected on 125 of 206 passes working out of North Posey’s spread offense this season, racking up 1,561 passing yards and 17 touchdowns, while completing 60.7 percent of his throws, a single-season record. The captain of the AllNorth Posey Viking footballl players and scholars Kurt Seibert, Colton Motz, and Bryce Koester made their college choice Pocket Athletic Conference team’s offensive unit graduates as official this week. They will accept scholarships from Rose-Hulman and play for the Engineers. Photo by Dave Pearce Continued on Page B2

Barrett went back to the a considerable The last week and a half lineup he used early in the shown has given the Lady Vikings a lot of momentum, something Barrett felt, but didn’t say anything about that to the team at the time. Barrett complimented Mater Dei for their strong effort, the kind that’s to be expected from a defending champion, adding that he was concerned about it at first, but then his team started playing hard. The Lady Vikings now head for a Tuesday Regional match up with 16-1 Gibson Southern, which blanked Wood Memorial 5-0 on Thursday to capture the

Princeton Sectional. The finals at the new North tennis courts will be played Wednesday night, with the winner advancing to Semistate action Saturday at Jasper. North Posey tuned up for the Sectional by nipping South Knox 3-2 at home earlier in the week. Ackerman had a better time against the Lady Spartans, beating Megan Brink 6-1, 6-0 at first singles, while Thomas was a 6-2, 6-0 winner over Haley Burch at second singles. North Posey didn’t fare as well at third singles on the other hand, with Bri Perry dropping a 6-1, 6-3 decision to Bailey Dillon. The two teams also split at doubles, with Brown pairing up with Droege at second doubles for a 6-4, 6-2 win over Cassie Rehwald and Laura Rustl, while Durcholz moved to first doubles. That wasn’t as successful, as she and Reidford fell to Alyssa Koby and Katie Gray 6-3, 7-5. “We really didn’t have any problems with (South Knox),” Barrett said. “The last week-and-a-half has given us a lot of momentum. We just were playing well down the stretch and I knew we had something special going on.” The Lady Viking reserves closed out their season with a 5-2 victory over South Knox. Sometimes tennis scores can be deceiving. A 3-2 meet can be pretty much cut and dried, while a 5-0 victory can be hotly contested if the spots are close. That may not have been the case in some of the Lady Vikings’ last meets of the regular season. The Lady Vikings started off by blanking Wood Memorial 5-0 and then came back to shut out Bosse 5-0, before beating Heritage Hills 4-1. The scores of both of the early matches suggested that neither was very competitive. The Lady Trojans had a few moments, but not that many. Reidford and Simpson gave up a few sets early and then topped Gina Strickland

and Rachel Wilkins 6-2, 6-0, at first doubles, which was also how Thomas took her second doubles match over Shelby McGregor. Ackerman and Brown each gave up two games, but they still controlled their matches, as Ackerman beat Rebecca Mullen 6-1, 6-1 at first singles and Brown was a 6-1, 6-1 winner over Sara Hornby at third singles. Droege and Durcholz posted a 6-0, 6-0 victory over Alex Houchin and Audrey Tepe at second doubles. The North Posey reserves whitewashed Wood Memorial 2-0 in their meet. The Lady Vikings then slammed the door on Bosse, beating the visitors 5-0. The Lady Bulldogs provided the Lady Vikings’ top two singles players with the toughest tests of the night, if one can consider 6-1, 6-0 a test. That was the score as Ackerman dispatched Mikhalia Hamilton at first singles and Thomas beat Sheaven Harrelson at second singles. Everybody else won 6-0, 6-0. That was the score as Brown topped Alexis Medina at third singles, Reidford and Simpson whitewashed Brittney Avera and Shauna Purdy at first doubles and Droege and Durcholz blanked Lucy Jackson and Cassie Pollard at second doubles. The Lady Viking reserves also hauled out the whitewash for an 8-0 win over Bosse. Things were a little tighter in the makeup meet with the visiting Lady Patriots. First singles went to Heritage Hills, as Bridget Butcher topped Ackerman 6-3, 6-1, while Emmi Stark pushed Thomas to three sets at second singles, before the Lady Viking could pull out a 2-6, 7-5, 6-4 victory. But the further down the score sheet, the stronger the Lady Vikings performed. Brown took over in th second set and polished off Allison Barron 6-4, 6-1 at third singles, while Rediford and Simpson topped Alyssa Begle and Jessica Deller at first singles 6-2, 6-0. Droege and Durcholz also

needed some time to warm up, but then they dispatched Megan Boehm and Morgan Schafer at second doubles 6-3,6-0. Heritage Hills also got a lick in during the reserve meet, won by the Lady Vikings 4-1. The three wins followed a pair of tough Pocket Athletic Conference losses in recent meets The Lady Vikings took both doubles spots, but the Forest Park Lady Rangers swept the singles early in the week. That simple math adds up to a 3-2 victory for the visiting Lady Rangers, and then Gibson Southern blanked North Posey 5-0. Brown pulsed the Lady Titans’ Haley Decker to three sets, but it wasn’t enough as she dropped a 6-2,3-6,7-6(4) decision at third singles in what proved to be North Posey’s closest spot against the visiting Lady Titans. Thomas also put up a fight at second singles before falling to Alison Goedde 6-3,7-5, while the rest of the spots were progressively more favorable to Gibson Southern. The first doubles combo of Rachel Sensmeier and Alyssa Kiesel posted a 6-2, 6-3 decision over Reidford and Durcholz, while Sydney Fenton and Mariah Chamberlain were 6-2, 6-2 winners over Droege and Simpson. At first singles, Kori Titzer was a 6-1, 6-1 winner over Ackerman. Against the Lady Rangers, Reidford and Durcholz were 6-3, 6-0 winners over Amelia Ebert and Rachel Hentrup at first doubles, while Droege and Brown dispatched Jordan Buechler and Kereston Hochesang 7-5, 6-2 at second doubles. Ackerman put up the toughest fight at first singles, but fell to Samantha Hopf 7-6(6), 6-0. Thomas also put up a battle in the first before falling to Alexa Lange 7-5, 6-1 at second singles, while Amie Weyer faced Simpson at third singles and posted a 6-0, 6-4 victory. It was good news, bad news week for the Lady Viking reserves, as they defeated Forest Park 5-2, but lost to Gibson Southern 4-1.

most on the team this season. He plans to major in civil engineering, with a minor in environmental engineering. The son of Layne and Amy Motz of Wadesville, Colton chose Rose-Hulman over Murray State and Southern Illinois. In addition to always knowing he wanted to be an engineer and recognizing Rose-Hulman’s reputation as an engineering school, Seibert has some other reasons for choosing the Terre Haute school. “I have a brother (Anthony Seibert) up there and I’ve been to the school and I like it,” he explained. “I also now it’s the number-one rated school in the country, so if I want to get a good education, that’s it.” The Engineers will need some help on their defensive line this season, which is where Seibert earned an All-PAC honorable mention in 2011. He was third on the team with 32 solo tack-

les and registered 19 assists this season, sharing second place with Alex Goebel. Seibert pressured opposition quarterbacks five times with a sack, while also causing a fumble and turning in three tackles which resulted in six yards in losses. Seibert chose Rose-Hulman over the University of Evansville, where he had been accepted before opting for Rose Hulman. Kurt is the son of Patrick and Susan Seibert of New Harmony. He will dual major in mechanical and electrical engineering. Koester also has family connections to Rose-Hulman (his uncle, Tim Wilson, was valedictorian there) and has been looking at a career in engineering since junior high school. He will play on the offensive line, at either guard or tackle, with his size (fivefoot-10, 230 pounds) making guard more of a possibility. The son of Wadesville residents Edwin and Julie Koester, Bryce chose RoseHulman over Southern Indiana. He will major in civil engineering. All three players felt that playing at North Posey helped them prepare for college. “Coach (Joe) Gengelbach always taught us to work hard,” Motz said. “I learned to love the game and so I feel like the hard work I’ve put in all four years with Coach Gengelbach is going to help me at Rose-Hulman.” Playing football at North Posey has built a love for the game in Koester and it has helped him become a better technical football player, he said. Although he’ll be an offensive lineman, Koester

registered 16 solo tackles and nine assists for the Vikings this season. Seibert also praised Gengelbach for efforts in teaching football to him and his teammates. He also enjoyed playing with his friends, but is looking forward to the new experience of playing in college. Of course, some of his college teammates may look a little bit familiar. For his part, the coach said that he would miss the three seniors. “They’ve been a tremendous part of our program for the last three years,” Gengelbach said. “When we look around and what had to replace off each team, when you have three kids who have the ability to play, you have to look around and look for some younger kids to step up and fill in those places for us.” Gengelbach praised the seniors’ ability to work together and work with younger players as well as their leadership abilities and intelligence. “They’re going to help (Rose-Hulman),” Gengelbach said. “There’s a place that they’re going to be able to work into. When they go from high school, you’ve got that extra step and you’re going to take a year where you have to mature into what that college wants or what that university wants, but these kids will adapt very well.” The Division III Engineers were 5-5 under Coach Jeff Sokol last season, going 5-3 in the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference. That was the eighth straight season that Rose-Hulman finished with a .500 or better record.

It was a rough week for the North Posey boys’ golf team. The Vikings lost three times, including a third place finish behind their county rivals from Mount Vernon early in the week. The Wildcats shot a 170 at Cambridge, 10 strokes behind North (160), but well ahead of the North Posey score of 217. Mount Vernon’s foursome outshot the North Posey team (nothing new there), as Brandon Lauderdale shot a 40 and Trevor Grant a 42 to pace the Wildcats. Mitchell Jackson and Andrew Higgins each carded 44s to round out the foursome, both finishing one stroke ahead of North Posey’s low man, Josh Easterling (45). Darren O’Risky carded a 51 for North Posey, while Ty Stock (56) and Chase Wildeman (65) rounded out the foursome. The Huskies’ Landon Smith fired a 38 to claim medalist honors. Things didn’t get much better for the Vikings later in the week, as they dropped a 181-222 decision to visiting Signature on Friday. Once again, it was one foursome coming in before the other foursome, as the Signature contingent all made it to the clubhouse ahead of the Vikings, who didn’t have a golfer shoot lower than Esterling’s 50. Kane Stratman paced Signature with a 41. The rest of the team was a little better bunched together, as O’Risky and Stock each registered 57s, and Wildeman carded a 58.

school where her academics would come first. She wants to have a good coach and that’s the opportunity she’ll have at Birmingham

Southern.” But it will be a program that Harris will be growing with, from the ground floor.

Lady Rappites, from Page B1 they would keep trying. The Lady Rappites’ game with Wood Memorial set for Friday was cancelled due to a lack of available pitching. Number two hurler Kelsey Owen was unable to pitch Friday, which would have left top pitcher Morgan Matthews on the mound for the game with the Lady Trojans, as well as two tournament games, Moore said. •The hits started coming Saturday, as the Lady Rappites closed out the last home softball season in school history by sweeping their invitational tournament. Morgan Matthews was big on the mound and at the plate, tossing four-hitter as New Harmony blanked Agape Christian 10-0 in five innings for the championship. The junior also collected three hits, capping a day where she went seven for eight at the dish. “Everybody hit the ball, ‘’ Moore said. “Everybody contributed to the effort.” The Lady Rappites played what Moore called their best game of the season in the tourney opener, as 12-2 rout of Cannelton which lasted six innings due to the 10-run rule. “We actually hit the ball,” the coach said. “We had 13 hits, scored 12 runs and one er-

ror. That was the most important thing.” Morgan Matthews went the distance and gave new meaning to the phrase ”a pitcher helping her own cause” by collecting four hits and getting on base five times. Matthews hit two doubles and two triples, including one of the longest balls ever hit at the New Harmony softball field, a shot of the top of the center field fence on the fly. “She’s our number three hitter,” Moore said. “She’s meat. We hit the ball, when you hit the ball, you score runs.” Matthews’ blast came in the top of the first inning, as the Lady Rappites were scoring five runs and basically putting the game away. After the Lady Bulldogs scored a pair of runs in the bottom of the first, New Harmony pulled away gradually and Matthews shut the door. The lone Lady Rappite error led to one of those Cannelton runs. New Harmony then scored a run here, a run there and finally built a 10-run lead on an RBI single by Worman in the top of the sixth inning. Everyone got a lesson one hit in the game. Kendall Wilson banged out a pair of hits against Cannelton, as did Kendall Morris.

Viking softball splits with Big Eight powerhouses By Dave Pearce The North Posey Lady Vikings prepared for their sectional tournament this week in a big way, splitting games with two perennial state powers. The Vikings beat up on long-time state contender Washington to the tune of 11-1 in six innings earlier in the week. On Saturday, one of Class 3A’s highlyranked teams, the Boonville Pioneers, jumped on the Vikings early and took a 10-2 win. Against Washington on senior night, the Vikings took charge early and finished off the Hatchets in the sixth inning. “The girls had 13 hits. Morgan Stierley was 2-for-3 while Elpers was 2-for-4 and Amy Brandenstein was 2-for-3,” Gentil said. “Megan Redman was on base three times and Deana Lindauer got on base all four times.” The Vikings did what they had to do to close things out an inning early and celebrate senior night before planning to travel to Boonville on Saturday. “We just had a rough start against Boonville,” North Posey Coach Gary Gentil said. “We played pretty good defense, really, but those first two innings, their power just went crazy on our pitching. We actually turned three double plays in that game. We made some very good defensive plays in that game. ” The Lady Pioneers, known for several appearances in the state finals, found the Viking pitching to their liking as they hammered out six runs in the first two innings, including two monster home runs, that took the air out of the Vikings. But despite the score, Gentil was proud that his team continued to play good defense and continued to battle against one of the area’s best teams. The Vikings got a run in the fourth and a run in the fifth against the Pioneers but had baserunners in all innings except the first and the seventh. Megan Redman got on base twice and managed a rare stolen base on the Pioneers. “That just doesn’t happen very often against them,” Gentil said.

Deana Lindauer was also 1-for-3 at the plate while also reaching on an error. Ally Elpers got on all three times she was at bat, walking twice and singling in her other plate appearance. Haylee Harness also had a hit and scored a run. Even Boonville Coach Mike Wilson was impressed with the play of his team, particularly his pitcher. “Mike said that in the past couple of games, she has really found her groove,” Gentil said of the Boonville Coach’s comments. “She looked really good the first five innings.” After the Vikings picked up a couple of hits on the started, Boonville brought in their No. 2 pitcher to close out the contest. “We got on base seven times against Chapman (Boonville’s ace) and that shows we were getting some good at-bats against a very good pitcher,” Gentil said. “We had runners on third two times and runners on second and third one other time.” The Lady Vikings will now enter sectional play on Tuesday where they will face Tell City. The Lady Marksmen have knocked the Lady Vikes out of the tournament each of the past two seasons but Gentil feels his team is prepared this year and is playing much better defense. “We like playing Boonville at this time of the season because they are a top-notch team because they believe if they can get past Gibson Southern in their tough sectional, they can get back to state,” Gentil said. “I was pleased with what I saw this weekend. We have been working really hard on defense and our girls understand they have to work the count. And, they have been playing defense awfully well.” The Lady Vikings will have a tough road to hoe if they are to win the title as Forest Park and South Spencer open the tournament on Monday and the Vikings will face Tell City before Southridge and Mater Dei on Tuesday. The two winners on Tuesday will square off on Wednesday with the championship to be decided on Thursday.

A school record in the mile relay was the big highlight as the girls finished sixth in Tuesday’s girls’ meet, scoring 66 points at Tell City. The team of McKenzie Orlik, Emma Werry, Tylie Robertson and Megan Bender ran the 1,600-meter relay in 4:16.46, beating the old school record by two seconds. The Lady Vikings picked up four runner-up spots, two of them by Bender, but otherwise the emphasis was on personal improvement and preparing for this week’s Sectional meet. Southridge nipped Forest Park for the team title, scoring 129 and one-half points, compared to 123 and one-half for the Lady Rangers.

Gibson Southern was a distant third with 78 points, followed by Heritage Hills (75 and one-half) and Tell City (74 and one-half). Rounding out the field were Pike Central (44), Tecumseh (25 and one-half) and South Spencer (three and one-half). Now, What about the boys’ meet? Don’t ask. North Posey only scored three points and finished ninth in the meet. With mainstay Mitchell Kuhn sidelined by a hip flexor, the Vikings could only manage a pair of low finishes in two relays.

Vikings take three of four in final week of regular season

The Vikings split a dou- convinced that his team did this week, taking three out

not have their “A” game on Saturday and perhaps on a better day, could have swept the double-header. But as much as anything, Smith wanted to get some work for his pitchers as he used six pitchers during the contests. The Vikings were able to win the first game 4-2 before dropping the night-cap 4-3 after entering the bottom of the seventh inning with a 3-2 lead. Despite having only three hits in the opener, the Vikings were able to find a way to win. After giving up a two-run homer in the first inning, the Vikings found their backs against the wall. But as they have so many times this year, they responded. “Cody Voelker delivered a big two-run double in the seventh that put us ahead 3-2 and that was really the biggest play of the game,” Smith said of the opener. “”We really battled all day yesterday, even though we weren’t really at our best.” Kyle Voegel pitched a strong game against Martinsville and picked up the win while Shane Neumann got the save. Jared Meliff had the Vikings’ only other hit in the contest. Although Smith refused to use the long trip as an excuse, the Vikings were on a bus well over three hours on the way to Martinsville and had little time to prepare for the games, once they did arrive. “I was very pleased with our pitching staff and we were able to throw six guys,” Smith said. “These games were kind of a tuneup for sectionals coming up this week. We were not going to overwork our pitchers. Martinsville pitched well against us and our of-

fense just wasn’t up to what it has been. It was just a long, draining day.” In the second game, the Vikings led 3-2 going into the bottom of the seventh inning and in a very unlikely turn of events, after giving up a double to the first batter, the Vikings made back-to-back throwing errors on the infield to allow the winning runs to score. Martinsville scored the first two runs of the second game in the bottom of the fifth inning. “We walked a guy and then hit two batters and then they had a two-run double,” Smith said. “But we came back in the sixth and got a run when Austin Bender’s sacrifice scored Zach Scheller.” The Vikings took the lead in the top of the seventh when Meliff led off with a double. He scored and later, Wes harness scored to give the Vikings the lead. “I think we just kind of ran out of gas at that point in time, after riding on a bus for nearly four hours and playing 14 innings of baseball,” Smith said. “It was obvious we were tired and maybe we were thinking a little about the three-and-ahalf hour bus ride home. It was a long day for the kids but I thought we battled and stayed in contention, giving ourselves a chance to win the second game late but I just thought we ran out of gas. I was pleased that we battled as hard as we did for as long as we did.” Earlier in the week, the Vikings defeated Washington by a 10-7 count on Monday before shutting out Tecumseh 7-0 on Tuesday. The Vikings and the Hatchets each had eight hits in the game but the Vikings

were able to string some hits together to come up with a big four-run fourth inning. “They came back and scored a run in the top of the sixth but Colton Motz was able to shut them down with a 1-2-3 inning in the top of the seventh to get the win,” Smith said. “That was a nice win to get on the road on another long trip. Motz also had three RBIs for the day. Tyler Stoltz started the game and only gave up two runs in the first four innings. Kyle Voegel also pitched in the middle innings.” On senior night at home, senior Shane Neumann had a complete 7-0 shutout in what Smith referred to as one of the best team approaches to the game he has ever been a part of. “We had a six-run fourth inning to open things up,” Smith said. “In the Tecumseh game, in my 13 years around high school baseball, I thought our kids had the best approach at the plate. We laid off of pitches that were out of the zone and we let the curve balls fall short. We ended up getting nine hits that night.” Colton Martin led the team, going 2-for-3 with three RBIs and Meliff was 2-for-3 with a pair of RBIs. Kyle Voegel was 2-for-4 with a double and an RBI. Casey Voelker also went 2-for-3 on the night. “We had a lot of offense spread up and down the line-up that night,” Smith said. “We had seven runs on nine hits.” The Vikings will open their post season against a red hot Perry Central team. Earlier in the season, the Vikings won a very good one-run ballgame in Perry County.

St. Wendel is off to terrific start in Babe Ruth league April, shot down in May. Well, that doesn’t really describe Jacob McLain’s first week of the South Gibson Babe Ruth baseball

season, but it might come close. McClain pitched a no-hitter in the St. Wendel Babe Ruth team’s season opener,

a 20-0 romp over Oakland City, but on Saturday, things weren’t as successful, as McClain took the decision in St. Wendel’s first loss of the season, 9-3 at the hands of Fort Branch VFW. That’s life? Actually that’s more like baseball. St. Wendel came back in their next game and shut out North Posey Black 6-0 at the Athletic Club field. Wildeman and Cumbee combined to shut out Black, with Wildeman going five innings. On Wednesday, the opposition finally got to a St. Wendel pitcher, as visiting Princeton Red touched Martin for two runs, but just like clockwork, Cumbee came on after five innings and shut the door as St. Wendel posted a 6-2 victory. St. Wendel opened its season in rousing fashion with a 20-0 victory in six innings at Oakland City. McCain threw a no-hitter, fanning six with two walks. He helped himself out at the plate with three hits and a stolen base. The St. Wendel hurler scored four runs and drove in one. Bryce Martin also collected three hits and scored three runs, with a pair of stolen bases and two RBI’s. Drew Cumbee, Curtis Wildeman, Jake Wenderoth, Klan Jourdan and Noah Scheller each banged out a pair of hits. Cumbee tripled and scored three runs, while stealing a pair of bases and driving in a run. Jourdan doubled, drove in a run and scored two, while Wildeman scored two runs and drove in a pair. Wenderoth and Scheller each drove

in three runs and Scheller scored one. Josh Elpers dabbled, scored two runs and drove in two, while stealing two bases. Kyle Luigs singled, scored a run and drove in one, while Josh Cook stole a pair of bases and drove in two. The North Posey teams played a Saturday doubleheader at the high school baseball field Saturday, with Black outslugging Haubstadt Merchants 14-7 in the nightcap after Red dropped an 8-6 batter with Haubstadt Legion in the opener. So, what was the er, word from Black coach Damien Word? “Improvement,” Word said. “Improvement, we’re working on it, we’re moving forward. Signs of improvement tonight. We hit the ball well, we put the ball in play, and we were really aggressive offensively. The pitching was a lot better.” While improvement was the key word in the sense that the coaches saw improvement, it was also a key in the need for improvement, especially on the defensive side.

“When we score runs like we did today, it’s okay,” Word said. “But we’re going to have to tighten the screws on defense.” Austin Graves cracked three triples, while James Marshall belted a pair of doubles and Ethan Morlock drove in two runs. Jared Hostettler also had two hits. Black outslugged Oakland City 18-13 on Wednesday and no, the North Posey team did not play good defense and shake off three missed extra points to preserve the win, but the pitching struggled after Graves pitched two solid innings and the team jumped out to a 9-0 lead. “We wound up taking a 9-0 lead into the third inning and walking everybody,” Word said. “It was a dogfight after that, we traded punches, but fortunately, we were able to come out on top.” Against St. Wendel, Black had a number of runners on third base with less than two outs, but couldn’t produce, as Wildeman was just slow enough to keep Black’s hitters off balance.

By Steve Joos Things were really going well for the Mount Vernon baseball team last week. The Wildcats had won three games, scored 53 runs, beaten two teams by the 10-run rule and had reached the championship game of their own invitational tournament, where they promptly plated four runs in the bottom of the first inning. And then came the end of the week. After opening with a bang in the title game, Mount Vernon relaxed over the next six innings, which let the Gibson Southern Titans back into the contest, which they eventually won 8-5, claiming the invite crown. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I felt like we started out good today, swinging bat against Rivet,â&#x20AC;? Coach Paul Quinzer said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rivet kind of helped us with errors in the field; Troy Paris threw a really nice game, kept the ball down and threw strikes with all his pitches.â&#x20AC;? Mount Vernon crushed the Patriots 20-0 in the tourney opener, which was called after five innings under the 10run rule. But what about the finale? â&#x20AC;&#x153;We go through nine hitters, score four runs and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s funny about baseball,â&#x20AC;? Quinzer explained. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You relax, just kind of like you turn off the switch or something and whenever you relax, that allows the other team to get back in the ball game and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what we did tonight.â&#x20AC;? River VanZant tripled, Jevin Redman walked and Paris was hit by a pitch, loading the bases with nobody out in the bottom of the first inning, leaving some to speculate on just how short Titans

pitcher Kenn Romershauhsenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s night on the mound would be. Clay Ford fanned, but Romerhausen then plunked Aaron Roberts, forcing in VanZant. Trevor Veeck fouled out, leaving the Titans one out away from escaping the jam and maybe claiming a moral victory, but Drake McNamara and Craig Beeson each cracked RBI singles to douse that prospect. So things appeared to be going well f or the Cats, at least for a little while. VanZant singled to open the bottom of the second, but then Redman grounded into a double play and that may have taken some of the wind out of Mount Vernonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sails, especially after starting pitcher Ross Canada blew through the Titans, retiring them in order in the top of the inning. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had a double play,â&#x20AC;? Quinzer said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had several poor at-bats, where weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d go up there and hack away at a pitch, we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a strike on us and we were swinging away at bad pitches. I think that gave Gibson Southern and (Romerhausen) a chance to get through those middle innings. Then all of a sudden, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in the sixth inning and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re realizing that â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;hmm, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re behind.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Quinzer credited Gibson Southern with scrapping back in the later innings to get the win. A walk, Alex Smithâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s single, a bunt and sacrifice fly gave the Titans a run in the top of the fourth inning. But then an infield hit and a misplayed bunt let in two more tallies, pulling Gibson Southern to within a run at 4-3. Two innings later, the Titans cashed

in on five innings of hanging around. Garrett Elpers reached to open the top of the sixth after a misplayed bunt, stole second and scored the tying run on a single by Tyler Ziliak, who stole second and went to third when Reed Oing reached on an error. A force play let in the go-ahead run and another two-out single put Gibson Southern up by two 6-4. The Cats managed to get one run back in the bottom of the sixth when McNamara doubled, Hank Dausmann walked and Bryce Newman bunted his way on, but that was all they could get, when Gibson Southern tacked on a pair of insurance runs in the top of the seventh. The Titans especially gave the Cats trouble when they got their bunts down. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We knew they liked to bunt,â&#x20AC;? Quinzer said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They showed it the first ball game. I thought we would have been better prepared; I thought we were better prepared. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be working on this week.â&#x20AC;? As for the rest of the week, Mount Vernon came into Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tourney with wins at North 12-6 on Tuesday and a 17-4 rout at Wood Memorial Thursday. Everyone hit the ball in each game Quinzer said, adding that the Wildcats rallied from a 5-0 deficit in the first inning to overtake the Huskies at McCutchanville. Paris pitched five strong innings against North, he and Canada turned in good relief outings at Wood to back up Dausman.

Posey County’s personal bests not good enough to move to regional

Only one of those tickets was issued to an Hoehn nearly won the 400-dash, accordathlete from Posey County Thursday night. ing to Wildcats coach Steve Brenton. Mount Vernon’s Jon Hoehn advanced to “They had to review it in the press box,”

Brenton said. “It was a photo finish. He got second. I thought his first hundred meters was a little too slow, his next hundred was fantastic and his last hundred, I don’t know if he saw that kid (Tracy Smith of Harrison) even saw him, he was so fast. Jon ran well. You don’t get second in this Sectional without running fast, but he’s going to have to do better if he’s going to get out of the Regional.” The rest of the team had a number of close calls, Brenton said. The 3,200-meter relay team ran a close fifth, while sophomore Austin Guthrie did well for his age in both hurdles races, taking sixth in 110-meter hurdles and fifth in the 300. Another freshman, Isaac Redman, was an impressive fifth in the high jump, while Sage Irons was eighth in the 1,600-meters. “It’s what I tell the kids,” Brenton said. “If you win a medal here (at Evansville), you’ve earned something.” Mount Vernon nearly got out in another race, as the Wildcats finished fifth in the 1,600-meter relay by a few hundredths of a second. Ryan Dick recovered 15 meters on Mitchell Mountain of Reitz in the last leg, but just missed punching his ticket to the Regional. The Vikings had several personal best performances, but some familiar obstacles resulted in just two points for North Posey, as the 3,200- and 400-meter relay teams each finished eighth in their events. “It’s been the same all season,” Coach Kevin Gengelbach said. “We’re going against good competition; we had several (personal bests) again. We’re young, we’re learning how to run, the throws and sprinters need to get in the weight room and the distance runners need to get out and get some miles. There’s potential there, we just need to work hard and turn it into something good.” The Vikings were suffering from the loss of junior Mitchell Kuhn, who missed the

Sectional and Pocket Athletic Conference meets due to a hip flexer suffered during a make-up meet prior to the PAC. Gengelbach said that Kuhn might have scored some points and advanced as an individual, but might not have helped the team that much. There was also a lot better competition at Evansville than at the conference. “We had p.b.’s there, we had p.b.’s at the conference,” Gengelbach said. “We just ran into some really good competition this year.” Gengelbach hopes that the returning performers will use the personal bests as a positive and use that to work on their events during the summer. If they can improve, hopefully some of the Vikings will punch some tickets to next year’s Regional. And speaking of punching tickets to the Regional, Harrison got a group rate for their return trip to Central Stadium, winning the Sectional with 142 points, nearly 50 better than runner-up Castle (93). Mater Dei was a distant third with 62 tallies, while North (59) and Memorial (55 and one-half) rounded out the top five. Boonville was sixth with 51 points, nipping Central (49), while Reitz (43 and onehalf) and Bosse (38) came in ahead of the Wildcats and Vikings.

County sends nine to girls track regional at Central

By Steve Joos Two records were broken in Tuesday’s Mount Vernon Sectional girls’ track meet. Taylor Willey of Central posted a new mark in the 300-meter low hurdles with a time of 2:13.24, breaking her old mark of 2:14.74 from last year, while Zuriel Saunders of Castle won the high jump with a five-foot, six and one-half inch leap, a quarter inch better than the long-standing mark of 5-6 and a quarter set by Harrison’s Kayla Tucker. Oh, and nine girls from Mount Vernon and North Posey advanced to this week’s Evansville Regional girls’ meet. The Lady Wildcats were fourth in the team standings with 64 points, while the Lady Vikings scored 29 and came in eighth. “We ran really well,” Lady Vikings coach Leah Stormont said. “We have three girls advancing to Regionals, which is one more than last year and that’s exciting.” Megan Bender finished second in the 100-meter dash, Emma Werry was fourth in the 300-low hurdles and Olivia Goebel was fourth in the 3,200-meters, each of which was expected, according to Stormont. Goebel was also five seconds short of advancing in the 1,600-meters. “We’re placing where we’re supposed to,” Stormont said. “This group improved every single meet. Each year, we’ve gotten better and it’s shown in all their hard work.” Bender advanced to the state meet last year, while another girl competed at Central Stadium, so having more qualifiers is a plus, the coach added. Right now, the main idea is to compete and see what happens. The two returnees are back and they will just go to the Regionals, compete and see what happens. “The effort is always there,” Stormont said. “The competition’s a little stiffer here at Sectionals, so I think our mentality has to be a little tougher here than at (the Pocket Athletic Conference meet).” A week after setting the school record in the 1,600-meter relay, the Lady Vikings fell back a bit, finishing out of the money with a time of 4:31.90.

Bender was one of five county athletes to take second in their respective events. Mount Vernon had the other four, with Kellen Ray getting second in the 300-hurdles, joining Werry in that event. “We were fourth as a team and I’m very pleased with that,” Mount Vernon coach Jackie Maier said. “We made a lot of choices; we did not load up on the events. The girls really ran hard for me at the conference and we really did some re-arranging and ran kids only one or two events for the most part, so I’m very pleased. We had some good performances.” And some of those girls did fairly well in the event they participated in. Ellen Foster was second in the high jump and fourth in the long jump, while Erika McCormick brought home a red ribbon in the 800-meters. Toni Waddell finished in the same place in the 1,600. The Lady Wildcats’ 3,200-meter relay squad brought home a third place finish in their race. “Ellen’s a competitor,” Maier said. “She’s fun to watch.” The coach had compliments for several of the qualifiers, including some surprising information on the qualifying hurdler. “Kellen Ray actually was in the middle heat of the 300-hurdles,” Maier explained. “Ad she ended up placing second, so she will advance to the Regional out of the slower heat, so that’s fantastic. She has not run the 300-hurdle race this season (she ran it in the season opener). We knew she had great potential, however, she wanted to run the 200 and that’s almost an impossible double. We decided that the 300-hurdles would be the better race, so we ran her in that and I was proud of her efforts.” Kaysie Collins and Cheyenne Strobel didn’t advance out of the discus throw, but they made the finals and did place, which was a big boost for the two first-year throwers. Maggie Maier and Nicole Hawley also placed in the pole vault. Ray and Foster were also part of the 400-meter relay team, with

Lauren Stemple and Abby Randall, which also finished third to move on, just missing a school record (a personal best :51.68, fivehundredths of a second off the school mark). Maier felt that it was tough to compare the Sectional with the Big Eight, adding the team rose to the occasion at the Sectional as well. As for Regional goals, they’re the same: advance as many to the State meet as possible. McCormick made it last year, but the competition will be much tougher. McCormick cut five seconds off her time in the 800, while the other Mount Vernon seniors, Ashton Fuelling posted a personal best in the 100-hurdles, and Megan Randall will go to the Regional as an alternate in the 3,200-relay. The evening belonged to Memorial, as the Lady Tigers scored 152 points to win the meet, while North came in second with 112 and Castle was even further back in third place with 78 points. After Mount Vernon, Mater Dei nipped Bosse 51-50 for fourth place, while Harrison (36) was fifth and Reitz (29) eighth, just five points behind the Lady Vikings. Rounding out the field were Central (17), Boonville (six) and Signature (four). Mount Vernon Sectional: 200-dash: 7) McKenzie Orlik (NP) :28.67; 400-dash: 2) Bender (NP) 1:01.14, 6) A. Randall (MV) 1:04.51; 800-run: 2) McCormick (MV) 2:23.00; 1,600-run: 2) Waddell (MV) 5:34.54; 5) Olivia Goebel (NP) 5;40.35; 3,200-run: 4) Goebel (NP) 12:27.04; 300-hurdles: 2) Ray (MV) :37.90, 4) Werry (NP) :48.86; 400-relay: 3) Mount Vernon (Ray, Foster, Stemple, A.

Mount Vernon boys’ golf team is seventh at Washington Invitational The Mount Vernon boys’ golf team was seventh in the standings, but number one in another important area at Saturday’s Washington Invitational tournament. The Wildcats carded a score of 337, three strokes better than eighth place Reitz and best among the four Evansville Sectional teams competing at the Country Oaks Golf Course. Central (360) was 13th in the meet, while Boonville (381) brought up the rear with the 15-team field. “That’s what we told the kids after the meet,” Coach Doug Blair said. “We finished ahead of everyone we played that we would face in the Sectional. None of the four major teams that we’d face were there (such as North, Memorial, Castle or Harrison), but the main thing is we were in the top 10 and we finished ahead of some of the teams we’ll be

facing.” What was the big difference for the Cats, but by the barest of margins? Just about everything. Trevor Grant shot an 80 to pace Cats, while Todd Sheffer carded an 84, but that 1-2 combination had a two-point edge over the top two Panthers and that may have been enough. Reitz’s number three man also shot an 85, two stroke better than Joe Reinitz’s 86, tying the two teams for seventh, but Andrew Higgins fired an 87 and that was one stroke better than the number-four Panther, giving Mount Vernon a score of 337. Mitchell Jackson added a 96 for Mount Vernon. Blair said that the length of Country Oaks (some of the holes were 7,000 yards) ham-

pered his team, but playing a course like that, as well as Christmas Lake (where the Cats played the Big Eight Conference meet) would better prepare them for Fendrich. Jasper shot a 306 to win the meet, led by medalist Will Seger’s 72. Vincennes (318) was second, while Heritage Hills nipped Linton-Stockton 323-325 for third place and Zionsville (330) rounded out the top five. The link Cats came in four strokes behind sixth-place Washington (333). Southridge (340) and Princeton (348) rounded out the top ten, followed by Northview (351) and

North Knox (357).West Washington finished 14th with a score of 370. While Mount Vernon didn’t face the Huskies at Country Oaks, they did play North in a triangular earlier in the week at Cambridge pitting Mount Vernon against North and their county rivals from North Posey. The team struggles with the layout at Cambridge and that may have been a factor which cost the Cats the meet (they were second 160-170, with the Vikings carding a 217), but the team was close to North and hung with them at times.

Vikings draw Perry Central, Wildcats get a bye Baseball Sectionals will open Wednesday throughout Indiana, but the Mount Vernon Wildcats will wait a bit. They’ll wait until Memorial Day, in fact. The Indiana High School Athletic Association drew the pairings for its diamond Sectionals Tuesday, with the Cats drawing a bye in the Class 3A Evansville Sectional, which means their postseason won’t get underway until Memorial Day (May 28) with a game against Gibson Southern at Braun Stadium on the University of Evansville campus. The first pitch is set for approximately 12:30 p.m. The North Posey Vikings start their postseason on Thursday, when they take on Perry Central in the third contest of the Class 2A Southridge Sectional, set for approximately 5:30 p.m. at League Stadium in Huntingburg.

Sectional action at the Braun starts Wednesday night at 5 p.m., when Bosse and Memorial square off, followed by a contest between Princeton and Boonville. Those winners will meet at 10 a.m. on Memorial Day. Southridge has a seven-team Sectional, which opens with a single game Wednesday night pitting Tell City and Forest Park at 6 p.m. The host Raiders will face Mater Dei in the first game Thursday night, with winner taking on North Posey or Perry Central in Monday’s second game, while the Tell City-Forest Park winner faces South Spencer in the first game on Memorial Day. The championships of both Sectionals will be crowned on Memorial Day night, with games starting at 7 p.m.

The U12 Southern Ind Vipers Take the Title in Boonville. The Spring Swing Tournament held in Boonville this weekend pitted the Downstate Rippers vs Southern IN Vipers in U12 fastpitch softball. The Vipers beat the Rippers twice in 7 innings in the finals, 3-1 and 3-2 to take first place.

uring the past 26 years, u Jan J Nesbitt has served 313 children c as a teacher and enrolled over 1,000 as the en enro director dire di re at Susanna Wesley Preschool in Mount Vernon. Even as she boxes her personal effects to close out her term as director this Friday, May 25, she is already looking back over her shoulder and hopes to substitute teach for new director Lisa Frye this fall. “I will miss it all,” Nesbitt confesses. “I enjoy the kids. I enjoy the office work. Planning the activities for them can be fun—anticipating how they will grow and change from a certain activity.” Early childhood education has always been Nesbitt’s first love. She ran her own preschool for five years in her native New York State until her husband Allen was transferred to Mount Vernon with Bristol-Myers Squibb. The whole family moved in July 1985, and Nesbitt started teaching at Susanna Wesley in September the same year. She remained a teacher until 1997 when Amy Enloe passed her the director’s baton in a very smooth transition. “When Amy was the director, she also taught when I was teaching. When she would need help occasionally here in the office, I would sit in with her,” Nesbitt recalls. “She taught me while she was in here. I would work a day in the office while she was teaching, and then I’d teach the opposite days.” An effective teacher, nonetheless, Nesbitt describes herself as “an Eeyore-type person.” Her love for working with the kids helped her to overcome her natural shyness. “Dealing with or talking with people

is hard for me. I’m really shy,” she admits. “I don’t have this bubbly personality. When I went to college, they said all my preparation and ideas were great, but they would never give me A’s in dramatics. I overcame that shyness. I found out I could.” Indeed, Nesbitt’s eyes and face light up whenever she talks about the children. “Some people are nurses; some people deal with adults. I just love children,” she says. “They’re exciting. Every year, there’s a different batch. It’s just fun to see them change and to grow. At the beginning of the year, you’re tearing your hair out, thinking you’ll never get anywhere. At the end, you’re saying, ‘Oh, wow! Look at these kids! They’re so special! I know this makes a big difference in their schooling when they get to kindergarten and have D EN ER this under EV R their belt. The teachers know when the kids have been to preschool.” Nesbitt insists graduating kids



with good social and academic skills erases the pain of any long days in the classroom. “It’s like childbirth: you just remember the good and


Heidi is one of eight grandchildren born to the four children of Allen and Jan Nesbitt. Their three daughters— Julie Cotner, Robin Price and Lisa Wallis—all live in this area while their son Wade lives in nearby Ohio. In fact, Julie has worked as a teacher under her mother’s direction at Susanna Wesley Preschool. The whole family looks forward to spending more time together at a certain lakeside cabin. Needless to say, Nesbitt cannot step 2012 away from her duties without encouraging parents to consider enrolling their preschool-aged children now for the August class at Susanna Wesley by calling 838-2835. She promises the highest quality of learning for the little ones. “It’s a wonderful school. The tuition is very, very reasonable. I know economic times are tough, but it’s such a boost to the kids who come. It opens up all kinds of new avenues READ Y FOR to them. We work hard with the Indiana state standards for kindergarten to help the children in those areas,” she states. “We give them a chance to be with their peers and run and jump and play as well as work with academics.” TOP PHOTO AND STORY BY PAM ROBINSON OTHER PHOTOS AND DESIGN BY ZACH STRAW SEE MORE OF THIS SET ON OUR FACEBOOK PAGE


the fun days,” she comments. “You just get worn down sometimes, feeling you can’t think of another interesting way to do the same thing. The staff is all good and dedicated people, too. They’re all here because they care about the kids. Nobody is here because of the money.” When she considers enrollment data, Nesbitt feels especially rewarded for her efforts. Former graduates, now parents, are bringing their children to Susanna Wesley Preschool, founded in 1983. “It speaks to the longevity of the school and the dedication of the parents to our place,” she states. One of Nesbitt’s greatest joys upon retirement will be conversations with her oldest granddaughter Heidi, an elementary education major with a reading minor at the University of Evansville. “We love to talk picture books,” she relates.

Public Service Announcement

Pursuant to IC-32-34-1-28(a) legal notice is hereby given to the people and entities listed below who appear to be owners of unclaimed property, which is presumed to be abandoned and has been recently reported to the Indiana Attorney General's OďŹ&#x192;ce for the year 2010 only. Names and addresses that appear in this publication are listed alphabetically by the county of last known address on record, as submitted by the remitting holder. The website contains a complete list of all properties currently held by the state. Unclaimed Property is not physical real estate or vehicles. It is personal property or monies that have registered inactive in a holder's account (IC 32-34-1-8) for a set period of time. Such funds may include savings and checking account balances, unpaid wages, insurance proceeds, safe deposit box contents, stocks & dividends, and utility deposits. When attempts to contact the owner have been unsuccessful, the holder is required by law to report and remit the property to the Indiana Attorney Generalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s OďŹ&#x192;ce which will act as custodian of the funds for 25 years. Thereafter, all remaining unclaimed funds and obligations shall be transferred to the State's general fund. A person or entity having a legal interest in these properties may obtain more information by visiting or by calling the Attorney Generalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Unclaimed Property Division toll free at 1-866-IN-CLAIM (1-866-462-5246) for instructions on how to submit a claim. All claims must be supported by proof of rightful ownership or legitimate representation and state approved identiďŹ cation. Searching for and claiming property is a free public service provided by the Indiana Attorney General.

Steve and Mary Ann Fuelling work behind the scenes for Mount Vernon Steve and Mary Ann (Lang) Fuelling have extended deep roots in Mount Vernon, choosing to remain in their birthplace. Raised in rural Mount Vernon, Mary Ann moved with her husband and children onto Mulberry Street and has lived there, in one home or another, ever since. A townie, Steve and his nine siblings were born and raised right in the city limits. Both are retired teachers from the Metropolitan School District of Mount Vernon. Mary Ann taught 5th grade at West until 2005, just a few years after Steve retired in 2001 from 30 years of teaching mathematics at Mount Vernon High School. Now, they work tirelessly behind the scenes to help create a hometown in which all residents can take pride. Now in his fifth year (the start of his second elected term) as city councilman, Steve remains grateful to have served on the riverfront silo demolition committee with fellow members Joe Winiger and Steve Koenig. His reward was seeing the silos come down last year after two years of work to help secure donations and a grant to cinch the project. Likewise, he has been instrumental, if invisible to the public, in the very visible beautification of the riverfront, Phase 1 and Phase 2—the landscaping of the garden terraces and now the building of the amphitheater. Along

with Mike Smith of Vectren and Terry Gottman of Gottman Electric in Mount Vernon, for example, Steve made sure the riverfront shone even in the darkness with the installation of street lights along the ever-expanding park. In addition, he has literally spent time in the trenches as street chairman for city council, taking a handson approach to understanding the projects of city street commissioner Roy Maynard. “When I ran for city council,” Steve comments, “I had two goals. I wanted to save the city money wherever I could and to help take the burden off the Mayor, no matter the political party in power.” Likewise, Mary Ann has pulled her own duty in the trenches. A member of the Mount Vernon Garden Club, she is also a founding member of the Main Street Tree Committee, working closely with Vectren, Sabic and individual donors to bring over 40 trees to the city in the past two years alone. She serves also on the Southwest Indiana Azalea Trail Project, which has placed 300 azaleas at the sites of public nonprofit organizations around town since 2010 and is working on establishing an azalea walking path through downtown. Her work continues in maintaining the trees and plants. She, Judy Heberer and Cindy Naab must often clean the dirt out from under their nails: they weed and

water, fertilize and mulch all the greenery and flowers. Along with Steve, Mary Ann also completed the course at Wesselman Park Nature Center to become a Master Naturalist, putting in hours of volunteer work, primarily at Harmonie State Park. Married 16 years, the Fuellings choose to stay in the great outdoors even in their leisure. They love spending time with

their blended family of four children and seven grandchildren at the rustic cabin Steve built in Robinson Township. They maintain and enjoy walking the grounds, where they planted 400 trees. Another passion for Steve is long distance motorcycle riding. As anyone can see, the Fuellings’ retirement hasn’t meant they lead retiring lives.
