Posey voters embrace ‘change,’ GOP is winner By Dave Pearce Just as Dorothy told Toto, “We’re not in Kansas anymore,” Posey County political candidates must have been pinching themselves wondering if they were still in Posey County as election returns came in on Nov. 2. United States President Barack Obama ran his Democratic presidential campaign two years ago emphasizing one word…change. After only two years in office, Americans and even Posey County voters sent a resounding message to the White House and throughout the halls of the Congress and Senate on Election Day. They apparently are dissatisfied with the “change” that has occurred or is anticipated. The lack of support by voters to what is happening in the Washington, D.C., could well have spelled what would happen in Posey County…more change. In a county that has voted predominantly Democratic for at least the past 30 years, things were quiet in the Posey County Courthouse as the votes were being tallied. Until election night, Democrats held 100 percent of all Posey County offices. But as precinct after precinct reported, it seemed that the more precincts that reported, the more of a lead the Republican Party garnered. An unprecedented

nearly 55 percent of registered voters voted in the mid-term election. “So many people have said that Republicans cannot win in Posey County and we proved that wrong tonight but this is just the first step,” Posey County GOP Chairman Greg Newman said. “Now we have to govern and do what we said we were going to do.” Long-time Democrats stood in disbelief as the party took the worst hit in memory. Perhaps a statement made by long-time Posey County resident and former Posey County Sheriff Bill Cox said it best as he left Democratic headquarters in Mount Vernon. “I’ve enjoyed a lot of elections, had a lot of good times and smiles in this building but not tonight,” Cox said. But at the Mount Vernon Elks, where the Posey County GOP set up camp for the night, the disbelief was for a totally different reason. The Republicans had won nearly every race. Perhaps the biggest tale of the tape was in straight party ballots, where Democrats traditionally had ruled in Posey County. But on this night, straight Republican ballots outnumbered straight Democratic ballots by a count of 1,483 to 1,094.

grandfather in her decision to run for the school board. This is her first time to serve on a public board. “My grandfather was in the military and was very proud of fighting for our right to vote. He said that when you sit around saying ‘somebody ought to do something,’ sometimes you’re that somebody. So as I watched things unfold here in Mount Vernon, I decided I should step up and do something.” She has been involved in the schools by volunteering in various ways through her four children who range in age from two years old up to the oldest in eighth grade. “My main goal is to have open communication. My ears are open and I will listen to anyone’s concerns about anything,” Allyn said.

Wendy McNamara Bob Deig By Dave Pearce While much of America and particularly Posey County was swept away in a tide of GOP wins on Election night, one critical race remains undecided. The race between Democrat Bob Deig and Republican Wendy McNamara remains up in the air a week after the election and is likely to remain undecided for some time. If residents of Indiana District 76 ever doubted that one or two votes can make a difference, that should no longer be substantiated. The vote in Posey County echoed the closeness of the vote around the entire district as McNamara claimed a slight 7-vote edge in Posey County when the votes were totaled. After all the votes in the district were apparently counted on election night, Deig held an eight vote lead. Then on Wednesday morning Vanderburgh County Clerk Susan Kirk indicated that there was one voting machine in Perry Township No. 5 and one voting machine in Ward 6, Precinct 12 that did not have all the data recorded. On November 3, the remaining data was downloaded and the vote count changed, putting McNamara ahead by a two-vote margin. Deig indicated in correspondence late this week that he felt this downloading should have been performed on election night. Deig explained the situation as it stood on Sunday evening. “My opponent asked the Recount Com-

New faces to tackle MV school issues By Valerie Werkmeister Last week’s election results brought sweeping changes throughout the nation and right here in our own county. Voters clearly enacted their own version of change starting with their right to vote. All Posey County school boards will see new faces, but the highest turnover was doled out in Mount Vernon. Newcomers Heather Allyn, M. Brian Jeffries and Kathy Weinzapfel defeated their opponents to become the newest members of the MSD of Mount Vernon School Board. Weinzapfel triumphed over the only incumbent, Lucinda Bippus in District 1 with a vote of 3,248 to Bippus’ 1,954. Allyn defeated opponent Larry Williams in District 2 by a vote of 2,687 to 2,594. In District 3, Jeffries had a total of 1,751 while Kim Jackson had 1,462, Susan Gooden had 1,242 and Shelly Blunt had 819 votes. Allyn stated she was largely influenced by her

Posey County poets are turning lots of heads By Pam Robinson “If I feel physically as if the top of my head were taken off,” 19th century American poet Emily Dickinson writes, “I know that is poetry.” The work of four Posey County women poets may not have caused any heads to roll (yet), but it’s turned a few heads. Alison Baumann, Linda Reising, Susan Stark and Jessica Thompson—all four women recently read, along with more area poets, on Thursday evening, October 21, at Barnes and Noble in Evansville. All of them have written state and national awardwinning poetry that has appeared in such respected publications as “Comstock Review,” “Southern Review,” “Hudson Review,” “The Heartland Review,” “The Southern Indiana Review,” Brescia College’s “Open 24 Hours,” “Tiferet,” and locally the “Posey Magazine.” Yet, they all agree with the assessment of Savah resident Alison Baumann, the wife of Bruce Baumann, who publishes “Posey Magazine.” “The joy is the writing of it,” she insists. Poseyville resident Linda Reising adds, “If I never had another word published, I would still write. It’s not a conscious choice.”

her of plagiarism on an assigned short story. Reising remembers her pride in her short story about three little kittens when Mrs. Love finally realized the work was original. “That was really good,” Love said in praise of her student. Her teacher’s statement sealed Reising’s belief in her destiny as a writer. She continued to write prolifically although the first poem she kept didn’t surface until she was 11 or 12 years old. By the time she was in junior and senior high, she wrote love and war poems regularly. Baumann started writing poetry in elementary school as well. “I loved the rhythm of the words before knowing meter,” she says. She continued to write until the rigors of a career and raising her family ushered in a 20-year dry spell. Within the past few years, she’s again penned poems con-

Posey Poets, from Page 1A Each of them shares a special story about the beginnings of their lives as poets. “I can’t ever remember not writing,” says Jessica Thompson, a New Harmony resident for the past six years. “I used to write stories and read them to my parents in grade school. I remember the pleasure I got in reading them. Later, I turned to poetry when I was in high school.” A New Harmony resident for the past seven years, Susan Stark attributes her inspiration to write poetry for the past 15 years to reading. “I picked up a book of poems and thought it was OK and just did so. [Writing poetry] fulfilled an inner need for me.” Reising, who has retired from teaching English after 32 years, says she got her start when she was eight years old and her third grade teacher, (ironically) named Mrs. Love, accused

sistently. The women write poems inspired by life around them—in nature, in family and even in their readings. Thompson seems to speak for the group when she places poetry in two categories. “There are the push poems and there are the pull poems. The push poems just grab you and won’t let go until you write them. You see something or it’s a feeling. You know you just have to write about it. The other poems are the pull poems. You say, ‘I’d like to write about a topic, so I’m going to pull this poem out of me.’ It’s a choice. With the push poems, you don’t really have a choice. You just have to write. Some of them seem to write themselves.” All four Posey poets insist the poet must read broadly to polish her craft. They mention, for example,

nature poet Mary Oliver and Ted Kooser, poet laureate of the United States from 2004-2006. “You can’t write it unless you read it,” Thompson asserts, winning a nod of approval from the others. The women encourage poets to join writing groups also for support and critique of their work. “I’m just really happy to have met people who appreciate and write poetry. That’s what keeps me going,” Thompson comments. These local poets appreciate the support from their readers as well. As Stark says, “I’ve had people to come up to me later, especially women, who have thanked me after I’ve read.” So often these poets speak for us when we can’t quite find our own words to express our experiences. That kind of understanding is enough to blow your mind.

Sermon of the Week: Trial or temptation, or both By: Pastor Derek Ousley First Baptist Church Matthew 4:1-11. Many of us are familiar with the biblical account of Jesus’ temptation in the wilderness during his 40-day fast. Recorded in Matthew 4:1-11, this narrative recounts Jesus’ resistance of three temptations from Satan while preparing for his upcoming ministry. But have you ever asked who was at work when Jesus was in the wilderness: Satan or God? Or both? Obviously Satan was at work in the temptation of Je-

sus in the wilderness. The Bible tells us that Satan tempted Jesus three times, with Jesus rebuffing him each time. But what part did God play in Jesus’ wilderness experience? Was God absent from the scene? Would we blasphemously accuse God of being in cahoots with Satan? Or is there another option for us to consider? This question is crucial because the answer we formulate for Jesus’ temptation applies to our temptations as well. If we are saved in Christ (and even if we are not), we

will be tempted by Satan and his demonic cohorts. God shows us in this passage that both God and Satan were present with Jesus in the wilderness. Matthew 4:1 tells us that “Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the Devil.” God by His Spirit led Jesus into the wilderness. And the Spirit remained with Jesus in the wilderness and throughout His ministry. But Satan was also present to attempt to derail Jesus’ ministry. So how do we understand the presence of God and Sa-

tan in Jesus’ temptation? Satan tempted him unto disobedience and destruction. God through His Spirit tested him unto steadfastness and preparation for ministry. The same is true for those who treasure Christ unto forgiveness of sin and new life in Him. In any trial that we face as Christians, God intends to use that trial to bring maturity, preparation, perseverance, and dependence on Him by trusting in His promises (Genesis 22:1ff, James 1:2-4 and 1 Peter 1:6-7). In the same trial however, Satan, the demonic,

and even our own evil desires (James 1:14-15) are tempting us unto disobedience, destruction, and independence from God (1 Corinthians 7:5, 1 Thessalonians 3:5, and Revelation 2:10). The result of the trial comes in how we respond to it. Will we be dependent upon God through Christ so that our faith will be purified? Or will we run from God (in anger?) with an independent spirit so that we disobey and place ourselves on a path of destruction? The wilderness temptation of Jesus gives us an example of resisting the temptation of the demonic and trusting the provision of God so that we can find a deeper faith

in Christ. But more importantly, this story shows us who we must trust in order to turn from our rebellion (independence) in the first place. Jesus, who is God with us, always remained faithful to the Father. He always obeyed. He always trusted in the plan and promise of God. And yet He died on the Cross as a criminal. He died as a criminal so that He could take God’s punishment for all sinners who ever repent of their sins and trust in Him. In trial and in all of life, we must flee to Christ for rescue. We must depend upon Christ for our salvation from sin and for perseverance through daily trials.

Out and About Sunday morning our area went back one hour ending daylight savings time giving us another hour of sleep. It is also a cold time, but temperatures are to rise this weekend. Leaves are falling fast. Many loads of leaves have been hauled from our yards and street. We have had some pretty leaf views of our trees. We have had two days below freezing. I sure hope the winter won’t be too severe. I remember in 1951 the temperature dropped to minus 23 degrees. Too cold for me, but back then I was much younger and didn’t mind it too much even though I had some trouble getting to work and places otherwise. There was also a great flood in 1937 and the Griffin tornado March

Mr. and Mrs. Edgar Ricketts of Mount Vernon would like to announce the engagement and approaching marriage of their daughter, Twylha to Jeffrey Moye of Wadesville. Plans are being made for citizens of New Harmony to visit New Harmony’s twin city, Wiernsheim, West Germany as they celebrate their 800th anniversary in June, 1986. The town has invited the citizens of New Harmony to come explore the origins of George Rapp and the founders of New Harmony and celebrate this milestone. The Old Union Christian Church welcomes Ron and Pam Humphrey and their one year old daughter, Lissa as their new youth ministers.

Members of the Junior Class at North Posey High School will host a “Slave Day” to raise funds for class projects. As slaves, the students will help out around the community doing odd jobs like car washing, raking leaves, window washing, and house cleaning. In election news, John F. Kennedy was elected President of the United States as Democrat Matthew Welsh was elected Governor of Indiana. In a mock election at North Posey Jr.-Sr. High School, the students voted 197 to 161 in support of the Republican candidate, Richard M. Nixon as President of the United States.

Friday, November 5 we got .12” of rain, not much help, but we’ll take whatever comes. Janet called today and Norma Sue was here. Saturday, November 6 the temperature dropped below freezing also Betty Jane called me. I later went to Bill and Judy’s home for a wiener roast given for Billy Thompson’s 30th birthday, which was October 31. Sunday, November 7 I was in church at Poseyville Christian where the choir was very good as was the sermon by Rev. Doris. Also, the testimony by Karen Wilson, who is very faithful to be in church each Sunday was a blessing.

Sunday afternoon my nephew Rev. John Matsel came and blew the leaves out of the yard in piles to be picked up by the town. Thanks Johnny. Poseyville local gas price as of Sunday night was $2.79 9/10. Poseyville’s past two week’s rain fall was October 26 .50”, November 5 we got only .12” so the two weeks total is .62.” We have a chance of rain the last of this week. Remember you are always welcome to the Poseyville Christian Church at 10:30am on the corner of Cale and Main Streets. Myself and others were glad to have Darla Colbert in church this morning. Remember, the best things you can give to your children are good habits and good memories.

18, 1925, but Poseyville has had no major winds or water damage for which we are thankful. Let us always remember that “life is a gift that should be enjoyed.” Did you know that in 1996 in America that there were nearly 11,000 births and 6,000 deaths per day? Also in 1996 there were about 7,000 couples married and about 3,000 divorces each day? Marriage should be a lifelong venture. True love should last a life time. Elsewhere, Monday November 25, my daughter Janet called me from Oklahoma and my son, Billy who is recuperating from heart surgery visited me.

Browning Veteran’s Day breakfast November 11 Browning Funeral Home will be underwriting the Veterans Day Breakfast aboard the LST, Thursday, November 11, 2010, on the banks of the Ohio River in Evansville, Indiana This is the 4th year that Browning Funeral Home has sponsored the breakfast in honor of Charles H. Browning, founder of the funeral home. Charlie Browning spent

The baking times are approximate; it depends on how thick you cut the wedges or rounds of sweet potatoes. Try to cut them evenly so they all cook at about the same rate. For best browning results bake only one sheet at a time. Why the sugar? To help with the caramelization and to intensify the sweetness of the fries, but you can easily leave it out if you want. INGREDIENTS Happy Birthday Announcements • 2 pounds sweet potatoes, about 3 large ones • 1/4 cup olive or other vegetable oil • 1-2 Tbsp sugar November 9 - Candi Brenda Hottel • 1 Tbsp salt Lockwood, Tom Panetti, If you have a name to • 1-2 Tbsp spice or spice combination of your choice: Michael Scarafia be included in the birthchipotle powder, smoked paprika, Chinese five-spice, November 10 - Jeffrey day calendar, please send pumpkin pie spice, garam masala, Cajun seasoning, etc. DIRECTIONS 1. Preheat oven to 450°F. 2. Peel the sweet potatoes and cut off the ends. Cut the potatoes in half lengthwise and then, if they are very long, in half crosswise. Cut each piece into wedges. Alternately, you can slice the peeled sweet potato into disks either with a mandoline or a sharp knife. 3. Put the sweet potatoes into a large bowl and add the oil. Mix well to combine. Sprinkle with salt, sugar and spices of your choice. Use your hands to mix well, so all pieces are coated with oil and spices. 4. Spread the sweet potatoes out in a single layer on a baking sheet; the oil they are coated with should keep them from sticking to the pan. If you are trying to cut fat, reduce the oil to 2 Tbsp and use a non-stick coating on the baking sheet. (Note: some have recommended putting them on a wire cooling rack on top of a baking sheet, so that the oven air circulates around the sweet potato pieces and you don’t have to turn them in the next step. Others recommend preheating the baking sheet, to help the fries get crisp.) 5. Bake for a total of 25 to 30 minutes. After the first 15 minutes, remove the baking sheet from the oven and turn over all of the sweet potato pieces. Return to the oven and bake for another 10-15 minutes, or until they are well browned. Let cool for 5 minutes before serving. Serves 4-6 as a side dish.

The National Geographic Giant Traveling Map of Asia is coming to the Alexandrian Public Library November 22 through 24. Walking from one side of Asia to the other may be a nearly impossible feat, but with the world’s largest map of the continent it is as simple as taking off your shoes. "The giant map can be enjoyed by all ages, but we really hope that parents will take advantage of this opportunity and bring their children to experience it,” said Youth Services Coordinator, Anne Cottrell. “It’s a unique, hands-on way to learn geography.

Arts Council-Blaffer Foundation project By: Margie Rapp Have you filled a bucket today? The second graders in Posey County were asked this question in a literary/arts program of the Arts Council of Southwestern Indiana underwritten by the Robert Lee Blaffer Foundation Arts in Education Initiative. The grant from the Blaffer Foundation was used to purchase a copy of the book for each of the 285 children in second grade classrooms in Posey County. The award winning children’s book, Have You Filled a Bucket Today?—A guide to daily happiness for kids is a children’s book written by Carol McCloud and illustrated by David Messing. The book has won eight awards including Mom’s Choice Award from the Just

for Mom Foundation. In the book, a childhood toy (a bucket) becomes a symbol of caring and empathy, encouraging children to think about their words and actions and the result of them on others and themselves. Before Mrs. Jane Owen passed away, she and the Foundation members approved the project. Mrs. Owen expressed delight with her copy of the book. Maggie Rapp visited children in 15 classrooms in all nine of the elementary schools in Posey County, including New Harmony Elementary, North Elementary, South Terrace Elementary, West Elementary, Farmersville Elementary, Marrs Elementary, St. Philips Catholic, St. Matthew Catholic, and St. Wendel Catholic schools. Mrs. Rapp is an artist, for-

mer teacher, and the current Director of the Hoosier Salon New Harmony Gallery. During the visit to each of the classes, Rapp read the book and conducted an art/craft project with the children. Each child was given a children’s sand bucket and using their own unique creativity they decorated it using markers and foam stickers. They were encouraged to take the bucket home and keep it in their room to remind them of the lesson of compassion and caring presented in the book. At the end of the visit, each child was presented with a personal copy of the book along with a classroom copy. Of the experience, Mrs. Rapp expressed, “the children’s enthusiasm, enjoyment, and appreciation filled my bucket to overflowing.”

Copies of ‘The Wall’ remain on sale locally The Posey County Historical Society has for sale a limited number of copies of “The Wall,” the 25th anniversary edition of the story of the Vietnam Wall, both picture and narrative.

Can your fines to help the local food pantry Do you have overdue fines you have been needing to pay off? November will be your opportunity to redeem yourself. The Alexandrian Public Library will again be clearing one overdue fine from a customer’s account for each nonperishable food item brought in for “Can My Fines” November 1 through 30. Each fine on an account is a separate item, no matter the size of the fine. One fine will be forgiven for each acceptable food item you donate. If you do not bring in as many items as you have fines, we will remove fines in oldest to newest order. You may, of course, bring in additional items at a later time during November. Food items will be accepted only for overdue fines and does not include such fees as those incurred for repair of damaged items or loss. A food item will be determined acceptable if it is a non-perishable food item, in the original container, has the original manufacturer-applied label, has not expired, is in good condition and never opened or tampered with. Final acceptance of any food item will be at the discretion

WMI News In the summer of 1942, some “armchair strategists from the east” were saying that the Midwest did not know that a war was going on. With that charge in mind, Marcia Winn of the Chicago Tribune set out to visit six small towns in the Midwest. One of them was our town, New Harmony. Her articles describing what she found ran in the summer of 1942. The third of the six articles concerned New Harmony. It was titled “A Sleepy Town Sends Its Boys to All Fronts: New Harmony Hails 135 and Girl.” After recounting New Harmony’s unique history as the home of two communal societies, Ms. Winn describes the New Harmony of 1942. “The lovely old town, now veiled in the sheetlike gold blossoms of its myriads of golden rain or ‘gate’ trees, seems on the verge of desuetude. The hotel or tavern built by the Rappites is still there, but closed, and there is no other hotel. The old opera house is a repair garage. The old fort, built of stones quarried from the river bed, is a morass of vines and cobwebs. It has five churches, one funeral home, a pool parlor, a saloon, a few grocery, hardware and dry goods stores,

of Circulation Staff. A food item will be considered unacceptable if it is a perishable item (examples include fresh meat, milk, produce, frozen foods, bread), a single-serving item separated from the multipack in which it was originally sold, if the can is dirty or rusty, if the can is bulging or dented, has no manufacturer-applied label, the original seal is broken or item is sealed only with twisttie. Soft drink and other snack foods are not acceptable. A basket will be placed at the Circulation Desk to receive any donated food items. The basket will be used to visually demonstrate the generosity of our customers as they say “Can My Fines”. All food items collected will go to the local Food Pantry, so the more times the basket becomes full the more food the Food Pantry receives. So, bring your can goods to the library and have your overdue fines wiped away as you help the local Food Pantry.

Ms. Winn goes on to note that in the Civil War, Spanish-American War and World War I, New Harmony each time sent one girl off to war. In the month between Mr. Glump’s tally at the alumni reception, between 30 and 50 more New Harmony graduates went to war, and counting the young men living in New Harmony, but not graduating for the school, New Harmony had 135 young men off fighting. Ms. Winn continues. “No one really new so many boys were gone until the Campfire Girls started making ‘buddy boxes’ to send away. It quickly developed that there were

far more boxes than girls. It kept everybody in town busy for a week. Everywhere the spirit of ‘We’ll do all we can’ is manifest. It is not screamed around the streets, but it makes for a staggering total of deeds. It is seen in many little things: The three ton pile of rubber collected by the Boy Scouts on the opening day of the used rubber drive; in the housewives’ bemused but uncomplaining reaction to the sugar edict which gives them only nine pounds of sugar for the canning season and then they are unable to get that while the strawberries and cherries are ripe; in the two classes in

first aid and the one in home nursing which New Harmonians are attending to be able to care for themselves when the last physician is gone; in the mounds of garments they knit for the Red Cross. ‘New Harmony has always done its part,’ said Louise Husband, director of New Harmony’s proudest possession – its library – for the last 32 years. ‘We’ve always done it in the past , and we’re doing it now.’” And so as Veterans’ Day 2010 approaches we remember service men and women past and present, and we also remember those who only stand and wait.

By Sherri Graves two barber shops and a Fashion Manor. The Kurly Lox beauty parlor is closed, as is the other saloon. Its sole industry is a little flour mill. It is sleepy and dusty with the clock in the tower of the school gymnasium striking the hours for the countryside and the hoot of an occasional freight train the only foreign sound to break the quiet. But its bank has deposits of 1 million dollars, its library, a heritage from the Owenites, has 29,000 volumes, unparalleled in Indiana for a town of this size, and look at its war record: • Its May quota for war bonds was $9,000. It bought $9,600. • Its Red Cross quota was $560. It gave $714.12 • Its USO quota was $150. It gave $250. • It had no quotas for Navy relief or China relief, but it gave $150 to one and $250 to the other. And this, remember, from

a town with the population of 1,150 before most of its young men streamed out to war.” (And take note 2010 readers that most families had only one bread winner and the average annual income was about $1,700 per year or around $33 per week.) Ms. Winn continues. “Last month the New Harmony High school alumni association held its annual reception. Harry Glump, the postmaster, couldn’t quite figure out the gaps in attendance. Suddenly he began to tally the high school graduates who were in the armed services: 39 boys and 1 girl. New Harmony is very proud of Barbara Lynn, the girl. She is an army nurse. Her departure has left the town without a nurse, just as the departure of Dr. Harold E. Ropp has left it with only one physician, and he about to go, but she is the proud embodiment of a New Harmony tradition.”

Posey property tax bills due November 10

Cargill announces an additional donation totaling $5,000 to a local nonprofit organization fighting hunger in Posey County. Cargill AgHorizons of Southern Indiana provided $5,000 to At the Cross Mission in Mount Vernon. The organization will use the additional funds to purchase kitchen equipment. The equipment will allow the soup kitchen to meet the needs of their daily meal program that provides dinner for the residents of Mount Vernon and Posey County. “We are pleased to continue our support of At the Cross Mission,” said Pat Beckgerd, Cargill employee and community advocate. “Supporting their day to day operations through monetary gifts or volunteerism is especially important to the health of our community.” These donations are part of Cargill’s ongoing effort to fight hunger through both long-term solutions and emergency food grants. At a time when hunger-relief agencies are facing a growing demand for their services and donations are shrinking, Cargill is leveraging its leadership in food and agriculture to tackle complex economic and social challenges to help meet those demands.

Vectren urges customers to check furnaces, offers rebates As colder weather grows near, Vectren Energy Delivery (Vectren) reminds its customers that it is important to evaluate the condition of their furnaces before turning them on for the winter. The U.S. Department of Energy estimates one in four furnaces has been in operation for 20 years or more and may not be performing at peak efficiency. Other than simply looking at the age of the furnace, it is important to evaluate its performance. If it has difficulty maintaining a steady temperature or even reaching a certain temperature, there might be a problem. Noticing humidity problems inside the house, back-drafts from the unit or carbon monoxide detectors going off could also be signs that repairs or possibly a new furnace might be necessary. “It’s easy to forget to regularly check your furnace given most units are housed in basements or garages,” said Doug Petitt, Vectren’s vice president of marketing and conservation. “It is important that a qualified heating contractor performs a regular maintenance check in order to ensure it is working safely and efficiently. In fact, an annual tune up can extend the life of your unit and save 3 to 10 percent on heating costs. “ During regular furnace maintenance checks, the technician can calculate the Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE). This will indicate how much of the energy used by the furnace is actually generating heat to be circulated throughout the home or business and how much heat is escaping through chimneys,

windows, doorways, etc. If the levels are dipping below the 80 percent range, repairs or replacement might be in order. The higher the AFUE, the lower the energy bills will be each month. If it is determined that a new furnace is necessary, Vectren offers a $200 rebate toward the purchase of a 92 percent AFUE or higher natural gas furnace. A list of qualifying appliances and rebate forms are available through Vectren’s Conservation Connection on “Vectren’s Conservation

Connection programs offer customers a variety of information on energy efficiency tips, appliance rebates and home energy audits,” added Petitt. “You can even sign up to receive e-mails or text messages reminding you to replace your furnace filters.” Additional appliance rebates are available, including natural gas water heaters, boilers and programmable thermostats. Visit www.vectren. com for complete details on all rebates and energy efficiency tips for the winter heating season.

Keith Spurgeon, Chairman of the 2010 United Way of Posey County campaign, announced today that the campaign drive has reached 32 percent of the $620,000 goal. He asked everyone to make a contribution or pledge to help reach the goal. “It is important to have a successful United Way campaign so that needs of the people in our community are met in whatever situation arises. Our United Way of Posey County is a local organization and funds raised stay here to provide services to everyone in Posey County. This is about Local People helping Local People, and it is even more important now in the current economy.” Contributions will help to fund United Way programs such as the local Gifts In Kind program and Information and Referral Assistance as well as 21 local agencies receiving funds this year that provide services to the people of Posey County, in-

cluding: Albion Fellows Bacon Center, American Red Cross Posey County Chapter, Boy Scouts of America Buffalo Trace Council, Catholic Charities, Children’s Learning Center, Christian Church Day Care Center, Community Emergency Assistance, ECHO Community Health Care, Family Matters, Homeless Shelter of Mt. Vernon, Indiana Legal Services, Lampion Center, Mental Health America, New Harmony Ministry Association, Posey County Council on Aging, Posey County Rehabilitation Services, Rehabilitation Center, Salvation Army, Visiting Nurse Association of Southwestern Indiana, WNIN Radio Reading Program, and Willow Tree of Posey County. Other services provided for Posey County are 2-1-1, the easily-remembered number to call for access to information about resources and assistance in Posey County, and the prescription drug discount

program. Spurgeon added that because of the community spirit and support of local businesses, fundraisers for the United Way of Posey County continue. On November 10, Hawg ‘N Sauce in Mount Vernon will donate 10 percent of all sales that day to the United Way. Spurgeon said, “Come out to have a good time and help a good cause.” Steve Bennett, President of the United Way of Posey County, said “When we all work together to have a great United Way campaign in Posey County, we can be sure services and programs are available. Thank you to the Posey County community for your continued generosity and support.” Contributions may be sent to the United Way of Posey County at P.O. Box 562, Mt. Vernon, IN 47620.

GENERAL NEWS GOP benefits from change, from Page A1 Newman said that while being humbled, he was not really surprised by the outcome of Tuesday’s election. “Part of it is what is going on at the national level,” Newman said of the big sweep toward the GOP side. “But I think people saw that there needs to be a change in direction here in Posey County as well. Besides that, we had some very good, qualified candidates on the ballot and the people came out and voted.” Perhaps the two most notable accomplishments under Newman’s watch came where two young first-time political candidates upset two seasoned Democratic candidates. Twenty-five-year-old St. Philip resident Nick Wildeman will serve as Posey County’s auditor as he defeated former Posey County Commissioner Greg Martin by nearly 10 percentage points. Another political newcomer, Travis Clowers, defeated democratic incumbent Prosecutor Jodi Uebelhack, garnering almost 63 percent of the vote. “This was a testament to hard work, family, and good friends,” Clowers said fol-

lowing the final tally. “I felt like we did the right things. We ran a hard, clean race on the issues that we felt were important and the issues I felt voters felt were important. But now is when the real work starts.” Other local winners included Blairsville resident Jim Tomes, who defeated Democrat Patty Avery for State Senator and Betty Postletheweight, who defeated Democratic incumbent Donna Butler for Clerk of the Circuit Court. Democrats Martha Breeze (Recorder), Greg Oeth (Sheriff), and Jay Price (Coroner) ran unopposed. They were about the only races the Dems had to cheer about. Alan Blackburn did maintain his seat on the County Council, narrowly defeating challenger Jerry Walden. In District Four, Tracy Ripple edged newcomer Wayne Nall by an equally narrow number. Democratic County Commissioner Jim Alsop ran uncontested in District two, as did Tom Schneider in his race for County Council in District One. Nancy Hoehn defeated Democratic incumbent Kristi Carroll for the office of

County Assessor. Council incumbent “Bud” Parkinson was defeated by 12 percentage points in the District Three race. Newcomer Lindsay Suits defeated long-time Black Township Assessor Albert Gibbs by a little over 320 votes. While Republicans will take over many offices at the Posey County level, Democrats will still control both the Posey County Commissioners office and the Posey County Council. All three commissioners are Democrats while Democrats will outnumber Republicans 6-1 on the Posey County Council. Winners in other local races include Democrat Sharon Fifer for Bethel Township Trustee and Democrats Lisa Daugherty, Patricia Hancock, and Virginia Staples for Bethel Township Board. Dempsey “Bud” Funkhouser will serve along with Ann Fischer and Brandyn Mohr on the Black Township Advisory Board.

School Board changes, from Page A1 Weinzapfel has worked with Posey County youth for the past 30 years. Her current role as a career services coach at the University of Southern Indiana (USI) continues that work. This is also her first time to serve in an official capacity on a public board. She would also like to focus on a community relationship that reinforces support for the schools and its students. “I am concerned about some of the behavior issues we have. I feel it is a community issue, not just a school or family issue. I’d like to work better with families to solve this problem,” Weinzapfel said. She noted that while the school budget is a concern for most, she realizes that the schools hands are often tied with when they receive

funds and how these funds can be spent. “Their money is strictly prescribed by the state as to what they can do with those funds,” she said. She feels the biggest challenge will be to educate the public on the budget process. She welcomes one on one conversation, but would also support a board comprised of community members and teachers to help disseminate the information. She would also like to see more input from local businesses on the skills they require when hiring people. Jeffries hopes that his expertise as an attorney and working with the state government will help serve the school board well. “I just felt that I would be uniquely situated both as an ally and dealing with the state

government. I understand the need to communicate with the public and I just thought I could help,” Jeffries stated. His children attended Hedges Elementary School and when it closed it became a huge concern for him. “I want Mount Vernon schools to provide quality education with the tools students need to be competitive and successful in society,” he said. He does not intend to make changes right in the beginning. Instead, he would like to take time to assess the situation. One of his chief concerns involves budget constraints. “If and when future cuts are necessary, I would like to take it from the district level down to the people affected by this. I want to work with honesty and candor and get feedback from the people who are doing this day to day to see where we are not getting the most bang for our buck,” Jeffries added. On election night, Jeffries said he already had a few people “bend his ear”.

“I welcome that. That’s part of the job,” he added. Dennis Angel and Jessie Montgomery did not seek re-election while Randy Boyer and Beth McFadin Higgins will remain on the Mount Vernon School Board. In New Harmony, Curt Schmitt beat Scott Miller by just six votes with the final tally at 72 -66. Jim Scarafia was re-elected without opposition. Other New Harmony School Board members include James Eagan, Brenda Butman and Jason Wilson. Long-time North Posey School Board members Kathy Mauck and Mark Seibert also did not seek re-election this term. Geoff Gentil ran unopposed to fill the District 2 seat. Steve Bender also ran unopposed to retain his District 1 seat. Larry Lewis’ term had not ended, so he retains a District 3 seat. The remaining seat will be filled by the board’s appointment during their regular board meeting in November.

Recount, from page 1A sion for an Order of Impoundment on November 3, 2010. On Friday, November 12 at noon, Vanderburgh County will open their provisional, military and oversea’s ballots. Hopefully Gibson and Posey will do the same at the same time,” Deig explained. Depending on the outcome of the final vote count, it is reasonable to think that the candidate with the lower vote count will file for a recount. The candidate that files the recount will be responsible for the costs of the recount. The deadline to ask for a recount is November 16. “Recounts are very complicated with cross filings of all or part of the ballots and machines. Without a paper trail, some lose their trust in the election process,” Deig explained. “A note of interest is that if there is a tie, a special election will be held.” But Deig indicated he believes the election could have been completed fairly without the call for an impoundment. “First of all I don’t believe the impoundment order that was demanded by my opponent was necessary. It did nothing but cost the taxpayers money. I have confidence in all the County Clerks from Posey, Gibson and

Vanderburgh counties and I feel they all perform their jobs in a very professional manner,” Deig said. “These machines and ballots are already locked up and this has caused big problems in Gibson County, because they have one local race that is not counted.” Secondly, Deig said, I feel that every vote needs to be counted and we need to make sure that everyone’s voice needs to be heard. I still have confidence in the election process and feel good about the election. But according to information on McNamara’s website, she shares that confidence. “We are confident that, after all votes are in, we will will this race,” the site reads. “We have traveled hundreds of miles throughout this district meeting with voters. I have personally visited every corner and pocket of Posey, Gibson, and Vanderburgh counties. Our team has knocked on 12,000-plus doors and we have called thousands more.” “We did all of that for the people. And, I look forward to continuing our work in serving as your representative in the Indiana state house,” McNamara’s site reads. By law, the entire process must be completed by mid-December.

PAGE A10 • NOVEMBER 9, 2010



As Veteran’s Day nears, voter turnout is positive sign What better time to have an election such as this one than right before Veteran’s Day. Our hats go off and we owe an unpayable debt of gratitude to the veterans, dead and alive, who have TRUTH... made such a great sacrifice STRANGER so we can be free to hold an THAN election. FICTION While I would probably get BY DAVE arguments from both political PEARCE camps, the big winner in the election held last Tuesday was none other than the American people. Not long ago, I mentioned in one of my editorials that once the school referendum vote was done, interest in the future of the Mount Vernon School Corporation seemed to have dwindled…or maybe was completely gone. However, Tuesday night’s election renewed my belief that America is the greatest nation on earth. It didn’t come because

of the win or the loss of one or the other of the political parties, this election just proved that inevitably, the people have the power to change things if they feel elected officials are not getting the job done. For so many years, it seemed to have been a “given” that if you ran for an office in Posey County and you ran as a Republican, you could not win. While I will have to admit that at least a portion of the radical change that occurred here was because of national politics, I also have to say that I saw candidates on both sides working very hard to earn your respect and your vote throughout the election. That bodes well for the American people. The percentage of Americans who have chosen not to vote over the past few years

has become increasingly disturbing. First of all, the number of registered voters continues to dwindle. That number has dwindled, I believe, because people, in general, don’t believe they can trust politicians. And secondly, the apathy that has come with that belief instills a sense of helplessness among Americans who are eligible to vote. “Why should I vote? It won’t really make a difference,” I have often heard. Don’t tell our two fine state representative candidates Wendy McNamara and Bob Deig that right now. They obviously would beg to differ with you on that point as, at last count, only two votes separated the candidates. This election made people realize that if they don’t approve of what is going on, regardless of which party is in power in a particular office, voters can and do make the ultimate difference. How exciting for Americans to realize that they can make a difference.

I talked with a good friend just this week outside the grocery store in Poseyville, and he reiterated the fact that when any candidate from either party forgets that they are being elected to “serve the people,” they are running for the wrong reason. With this “upset” election, it gives me new hope and should encourage a whole new generation of young people to become involved in the election process. Because, yes, you can make a difference. Please drop your attitudes of apathy and realize that it is indeed a privilege to vote and you should consider it a duty, not optional. So many have paid the ultimate price so you can have this right. I am proud that nearly 55 percent of Posey County’s registered voters took advantage of that right this week. With the realization that every vote counts, perhaps those numbers will climb even higher in elections to come.

Habitat House project speaks volumes for Posey County At a time when giving hurts, the people of Posey County continue to help their neighbors with a hand up. Jim Bartlett, Volunteer Coordinator for the Mount Vernon Habitat build, reports on the generous donations of time, tal- FOR THE ent, and treasure to insure single mom Jaime Eickhoff RECORD and her three daughters will move into their new home BY PAM ROBINSON by Christmas. As the saying goes, “Many hands make light work,” and Bartlett recites a litany of names in gratitude for donated time, talent and treasure. At the top of the list are Jim Marshall and more than a half-dozen crew members from Golconda Job Corps. They traveled about an hour from neighboring Golconda, Ill., to remove two diseased trees, stump and all, before any work could begin. Next, Bret Moye of Countrymark was allowed time to help with the earth moving and digging. Jon Parker of Parker’s Excavating followed with truck loads of topsoil pro-

vided by Mount Vernon Boat Club. His crew filled the lot with the rich dirt and smoothed it out with a Bobcat to provide a flat surface for building to begin. On Saturday, September 25, Schmitt Construction of Poseyville brought in a crew of professional carpenters working with local volunteers to insure the floors and walls went in right. Several crew members are related to Pam Lowery, whose Habitat home next door was completed last fall. On Wednesday, September 29, Warehouse Services, Inc., or WSI, supplied a crane and set the trusses for the roof. The WSI crew represents a significant donation of employee time. This work set the stage for the shingles to be laid by Ryan Harms of the Mount Vernon Fire Department and his crew. They brought the house under roof before any rain could cause problems. As the work continues, Rodney Shephard and Shephard Services have agreed to do-

nate all the labor for the HVAC work. Shephard and the State Group along with Benny Tennyson of Countrymark are also at work to line up the labor to do all electrical work. A couple of weekends ago, workers sped ahead with placing the siding on the home. Bartlett commends the “everyday” volunteers who’ve sacrificed time and talent on weekdays and Saturdays to keep the momentum going. Truly, a village has been at work to support Jaime Eickhoff and her three daughters as Eickhoff sweats alongside volunteers in a labor of love. She has already put in the 300 hours of sweat equity Habitat requires of homeowners, so like past Habitat homeowners, she works with enthusiasm to exceed the mark in building her dream home. Just a few finishing touches remain before Eickhoff and her family can move in. Rick Rose spray painted the interior walls of the house singlehandedly with paint and materials provided at a significant discount by Cindy Smith, owner of Mount Vernon’s Floors and Walls. Bob Beste led workers

over the weekend in installing cabinets. A crew worked on hanging doors and installing floor and window trim as well. Bartlett says the churches in the Mount Vernon Ministerial Association worked out a schedule to supply food throughout the build. Donors too numerous to mention individually have provided over $35,000 toward the $55,000 build. Only around $7,000 is needed to complete Eickhoff’s home. Bartlett urges and welcomes continued donations, not only to finance the current build, but also for the spring build that will benefit single mom Jennifer Trout and her two sons. “For the first time,” he notes, “we have three or four families approved for a Habitat build, so we have people on a waiting list.” He remains confident the community will continue to lend a hand up to those in need. To make a donation, mail a check to the Mount Vernon Ministerial Association at P.O. Box 228, Mount Vernon, Ind. 47620. Please write “Mount Vernon Habitat Build” on the memo line. All donations are tax-deductible.

Letters to the Editor Bluff City wrestlers grateful for help

So Long Silo event successful

The Bluff City Wrestling Club would like to extend their deepest appreciation to everyone who made their Second Annual 4-Wheel Poker Run a huge success this past weekend. Our club raises money to aid our local youth wrestling programs, in the past we have helped purchase a mat, sponsor two local wrestlers on their trip to Nationals in Iowa and aided in the traveling cost of the coaches who volunteer their time. A special thank you goes to

Larry Williams of MeKims IGA for the donation of buns, to Sheila Schwindel and Debbie Stauings of Guilty Pleasures for her donation of candles for door prizes and Mandy Roos of Slow Hands Massage Therapy for gift certificates also used as door prizes. Thank you to the Savah Community for allowing us to hold our event in the old Savah School and thank you to all the riders that came out and enjoyed a fun filled day and helped us raise money.

To the Editor, November 2 was a great day for Americans and let me tell you why. I was working at the Robinson precinct voting poll when I had an interesting encounter with a lady that came to vote. She made it a point to tell me that she doesn’t care who wins along as it is not Jim Tomes. That obviously struck my curiosity so I asked her why that is. Her response was that he is a radical, an extremist, and she can’t see how anyone could vote for that man. Her tone and emotion in that statement forced me to inquire a little further because she apparently knew something about this candidate that I didn’t know. Her reply was, “because he is pro-gun”! That’s right folks, she said because he is pro-gun. This is what we are dealing with. When has it been considered to be extreme and radical when supporting a Constitutional right? Her mindset is that guns kill people and wanted statistics to show that they don’t. Well of course guns kill people

which is why it’s a proven deterrent against criminals thus a Constitutional right for defense. We in PoseyCounty have known this for a long time, which is why just about everyone of us owns a gun(s). It is a fact that there is a correlation among gun control laws and increased crime rate. As a city increases their gun control measures, they have inevitably increased their crime rate. As I was mentioning a few of these cities to her such as D.C., New York City, Chicago, LA, San Francisco, etc. she blurted out that she lived in Chicago. I’m not sure what the point of her telling me that was except to note that she lived in a city riddled with crime thanks to their strict gun control laws but she now lives in Posey County where there are very loose gun control laws, therefore, she is now able to enjoy a low crime rate. However, this is not about the Second Amendment, this is about our Constitution. These people actually exist out there and would be happy to see

Wildcat football reviews fun season at annual banquet By Steve Joos Each year, the Mount Vernon football team starts out with more than a few question marks and each year, somebody steps up. That was the case again in 2010, as the Wildcats finished with a 6-5 overall record, went 3-3 in the Big Eight Conference and reached the semifinals of Class 3A Sectional 24. Those accomplishments were recognized Sunday at the Wildcats’ annual hog roast and awards ceremony at the Mount Vernon United Methodist Church Wesley Hall. “All in all, it was a very good year,” coach Paul Maier said. “We had a great group of young men, who always make it easier to work with. They were just a great group of guys. We’re just very, very pleased with those guys.” Maier and his assistants (Ryan Stemple, Jake Warrum, Curt Mort, Justin Nelson and Justin Buchanan) introduced the players and discussed their contributions to the team’s success. They also talked about the contributions of the seniors to this year’s team. There were a number of good points during the season, making it hard to highlight just a few, the coach said. Maier went on to point out the overall improvement of the senior class as the major highlight of the season. And the lowlights? “Any loss,” Maier said. “I don’t swell on the negative aspects of the season, I’d rather just focus on the positive.” The team’s 15 seniors were a big positive this season. “A tremendous group of young men who worked their butts off to get where they got,” Maier said. “I couldn’t be prouder of them and what they’ve accomplished.” Those seniors included Zac Deig, Aaron Choate, Will Terbeck, Tim Davis, Logan Pace, Bo Harris, Jason Stemple, Blake Marshall, Jacob Ewers, Trey Finch, Aaron Straub, Andy Hart, Teddy O’Connell, Isaac Damm and Kyle Mosley. The Cats also have a very strong group of underclassmen coming up and they had an equally solid underclass group this season.

Silvers, Craig Dick, Michael Rynkiewich, Hank Dausmann, Alex Pepper, Ethan VanZant and Craig Isaac. Finch, Damm, Smith, Curry, Russell, Koch, Silvers, Rynkiewich, Pepper, VanZant and Isaac each won their first varsity letters, while Isaac earned a freshman numeral. Reserve certificates went to Tyler Head, Jordan Stewart,

Stemple and O’Connell were also among six Cats named to the All-Big Eight Conference team, They were joined by Ewers, Straub, Pace and Choate.

Lady Wildcats celebrate achievements, improvement at banquet By Steve Joos A 9-9 record and another spot in the Sectional semifinals. Considerably more improvement over the course of the season.

This is not the same girls’ soccer program that Liz Castle took over when she came to Mount Vernon five years ago. The Lady Wildccat celebrated another season of

progress at Tuesday night’s banquet and awards ceremony in the Mount Vernon Methodist Church Wesley Hall. “We had a successful year and showed a lot of improve-

ment this year,” Castle said. “The girls learned a lot and they worked hard. The program has come such a long way in the time we’ve been here.” Each of the players on this year’s team received

varsity letters. Certificates were presented to Lacey Johnson, Kirstie Keene, Jenny Koch, Samantha Scheu, Ellen Searcy, Keri Adams, Megan Randall, Jenna Reidford, Allyson Blunt,

Mount Vernon High School held their girls’ soccer awards banquet this week. Major award winners are from left: Mick Shrode, #1 Fan; Kate Cox, Best Offensive Player, Golden Boot Award, All Big 8 Conference, and All-District; Megan Randall, Academic All-State; Jenny Koch, Top Team Player, Most Valuable Player, All Big 8 Conference, and Academic All-State; Jenna Reidford, Academic All-State; Charity Konrath, Most Improved Player; Samantha Schu, Best Defensive Player and Academic All-State; and Lacey Johnson, Pride of the Wildcats Spirit Award. Not pictured: Kirstie Keene, Academic All-State.

Kate Cox, Kinsey Johnson, Christy Konrath and Hadley Thorne. Castle and assistant Jamey Thomas presented both serious and a few “Silly” awards (recognizing each team member’s more eccentric side) during the evening. Koch was named the team’s most valuable player and the top team player, while Cox earned the best offensive and “Golden Boot” Awards. Other awards went to Scheu (best defensive player), Konrath (most improved) and Johnson (Pride of the Wildcats). Scheu, Koch, Randall, Reidford and Keene were each recognized for earning Academic All-State honors, while Koch and Cox were recognized for making the All-Conference team. Cox was also named to the All-District Five first team. Kinsey Johnson, Konrath and Thorne each received their first varsity letters and each earned freshman numerals at the banquet.

Michea Reinitz is making a splash at UE

Michea Reinitz The University of Evansville women’s swim team is off to a mixed start on the 2010-11 season, but former Mount Vernon swim standout Michea Reinitz is doing her part for the Lady Aces.

A management mayor at UE, Michea is the daughter of Brian and Kimberly Reinitz. She will find a familiar face on the other side of the pool when the Lady Aces invade Cleveland, Miss., on Dec. 17, for the Delta State Christmas Invitational. The Lady Statesmen have former Lady Wet Cat Liz Frye on this year’s squad as a freshman. A sophomore on the UE women’s swim team, Reinitz won two events and swam on a first-place relay team in the Lady Aces’ most recent contest, a 23264 win over visiting Eastern Illinois. Reinitz won two individual events, taking the 200-yard butterfly (2:12.41) and the 100-futterfly (1:00.00), while swimming a leg on the blue-ribbon winning 200-medley relay team (1:52.07). Reinitz was also a double winner in Evansville’s 151-86 win over visiting Centre College, taking the 50freestyle (:25.47) and the 200-butterfly (2:14.23). In the Lady Aces’ 168-132 Missouri Valley Conference loss to visiting Illinois State, Reinitz was on the first-place

400-medley relay team (4:00.10) and the 100-butterfly (:59.82), while taking third in the 200-butterfly (2:14.20) and fourth in the 100-freestyle (:55.55). Evansville is 2-2 heading into the Hilltopper Invitational, set for Nov. 1921 at Western Kentucky University at Bowling Green. Reinitz had a very good freshman year at UE, earning All-MVC first-team honors after her third-place finish in the 100-butterfly at the Missouri Valley Championships. She also had the team’s best times in the 50-freestyle, 100- and 200-butterfly at the championships, while helping to set a team record in the 200-freestyle relay. Reinitz was also fourth in the 50-freestyle and seventh in the 200-butterfly at the conference championships. A Valley Swimmer of the Week last season, Reinitz also won the 50-freestyle at Missouri State and Western Kentucky in 2009-10, She finished with the three top times in the 50-freestyle and the 100- and 200-butterfly at the Washington Invitational.

Mount Vernon soccer team celebrates unity, experience By Steve Joos The Mount Vernon boys’ soccer team reflected on a season filled with ups and downs Thursday night during a team banquet and awards ceremony at Mount Vernon General Baptist Church. Coach Travis Kaiser reviewed the season and presented awards with help from reserve coach Benny Gentry. “It was a positive one (season)” Kaiser said. “We had 10 new players this year, so we were losing a lot of seniors from the year before and I knew it

was going to take us some time to get going and it did take us some time, but we continued to work and we worked hard.” As a result, the team had a good year individually and as a team, something he sees as a point of pride. Three gamewinning late goals were among the highlights of the season, as the team was competitive despite having players who did not play spring soccer. Varsity letters were presented to Zac Deig, Cory Estes, Brain Gillenwater, Mathew Kuhlenschmidt, Andy Kuper, Dylan R e u -

Spot Shoot to run until Thanksgiving

benacker, Kyle Sheffer, Dexter Volz, Dan Watzlavik and Ben Zickmund, all seniors. “The seniors were a good group,” Kaiser said. “A little different group. I had a player that collected 10,000 yellow cards, a player that gave out 10,000 hugs. I mean it didn’t matter if we won 5-0 or we got beat 5-0, it was the same upbeat group. It was a joy. No matter what happened in the game, they were always learning and always wanting to have fun.” Underclass lettermen were David Elliott, Ryan Pharr, John Guggenheim, Matthew Strupp,

Nick Theodosis, Alex Austin, Torsten Maier, William Stevens, Seth Wolf, Micahel Cannato, Seth Cutsinger, Tommy Martin and Julian Suar. “The underclassmen need to work,” the coach said. “We want to work to improve, we want to improve our record, we need to improve our on our skills. We want to improve as a group. We have to get the ball out, play indoor soccer, work on our skills. If we want to get better, we need to work on our skills.” Kaiser is hoping that the Cats would be able to finish over

.500 and be competitive in both the Big Eight Conference and the Sectional, but once again, the team is going to have to work to get better. Kuhlenschmidt, Pharr and Theodosis each earned Academic All-State honors. Reubenacker was named the team’s most valuable player, while Maier earned most improved honors and Kuper was named team captain. Deig graduated in second place all-time with 382 saves, while Reubenacker, Kuper and Volz earned spots among the career leaders in points scored.

principal Doug Mills. Athletic director Tabbi Farrar presented the Tri-Kappa volleyball award to Suttles. Team managers Levi Ricketts, Blake Walden and Holly Walden were all recognized at the banquet. The grade school team and their coaches were also recognized. The grade school team is currently undefeated in the North Posey league. JUST ASK US, WE MIGHT HAVE IT.

By Steve Joos The New Harmony volleyball program had a large senior group, a larger contingent of underclassmen and a new coach to adjust to. But they seemed to do all right. The volleyball Lady Rappites were honored with a dinner and awards ceremony Tuesday night at

Labyrinth Society plans events for annual gathering in New Harmony

The MSD of North Posey received an award from Riley Children's Foundation. This is the second year the MSD of North Posey has been honored with the title of “Miracle Corporation.” The district was given the award because each of the district’s schools (North Posey High School, North Posey Junior High School, South Terrace Elementary, and North Elementary), exceeded their goal to raise at least $1 per enrolled student to benefit Riley Hospital for Children during the 2009-2010 school year. Pictured are: (FR) Kelly Carlton, Principal South Terrace, and Ben Cohen, Riley Representative. (BR) Tim Teel, Principal North Elementary, Steve Kavanuagh, Principal North Posey Junior High, Scott Strieter, Principal North Posey High School, and Todd Camp, Superintendent. Photo submitted

MVJH sponsors blood drive Mount Vernon Junior High School is a co-sponsor with the Posey County American Red Cross for an upcoming Community Blood Drive scheduled for Friday, November 26. Students will be receiving packets this Friday during Homebase, and the packet includes a letter and a donor card. We will also have a short Studio 92 presentation by a representative from the River Valley Blood Region office to introduce the entire process. The donor card will need to be returned to the Homebase teacher by November 22. A Red Cross book bag will be available for each student who gets a potential donor to the blood drive – the adult must show up to donate. . Even though our students are too young to give blood, they can become involved by talking about and sharing the important message and need to their parents, older siblings, neighbors and relatives. By donating blood, a person could be helping to save the lives of others.

When the Labyrinth Society holds its annual three-day gathering in New Harmony next weekend, the following activities will be open to the public.

Posey County Pound Puppies offers opportunities from Pampered Chef and Tastefully Simple, Scentsy Candles and Simply Fun children’s games, artistic designs from the Mount Vernon High School Art Guild, several hundred pieces of sterling silver jewelry, wellmade handbags and baskets, wreaths and floral arrangements, home décor, handpainted birdhouses and bird feeders and pet photograph montages. A 501(c)3 non-profit charity, PC Pound Puppies is not affiliated with or funded by any other group or organization. It started in 2004 when President Brenda Vanderver and Fundraising Chair Amber Hoover shouldered the responsibility for finding homes for the county’s stray and homeless dogs. Whereas Posey Humane Society provides for owner-surrendered dogs, PC Pound Puppies works with Posey County and Mount Vernon Animal Control to handle all stray dogs picked up anywhere in Posey County. PC Pound Puppies has the distinction of providing a no-kill shelter at its location on Copperline Road in the St. Philip area. Only dangerously aggressive or terminally ill animals are eu-

By Pam Robinson PC Pound Puppies is offering holiday shoppers a unique opportunity to avoid the Black Friday crowds and still find great gifts for Christmas. The organization’s first annual craft show will feature around 40 booths offering a wide range of items sure to satisfy even those hard-to-please loved ones on gift lists. Shoppers can browse from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, November 20, at the Posey County 4-H Fairgrounds Community Center. Simple breakfast and lunch foods, such as doughnuts and hamburgers, will be available to sustain shoppers along with free live entertainment. In addition, a silent auction stocked by booth vendors and local merchants will be open during the craft show. All net profits will benefit PC Pound Puppies, which will offer t-shirts and dog toys, among other things, for sale as well. Volunteer event organizer Cathy Powers mentions everything from acrylics on canvas to zesty stir-crazy kettle corn. She emphasizes the vendors will bring in high-end gifts such as ceramic Santas, products

thanized. Vanderver points out that fewer than 20 dogs have been euthanized out of just under 800 dogs taken in during the past four years. She notes the shelter’s 26 kennels are full for the first time. Typically, she says PC Pound Puppies holds 25-30 dogs in foster care and at the shelter, but since this June, around 50 dogs have been cycling through the rescue each week. “The economy is definitely affecting the number of dogs picked up by animal control,” Vanderver explains. Each weekend, she and a team of core volunteers give their time and energy to finding the dogs homes during Adopt-A-Pet events at Pet Food Center North in Evansville. “We can’t miss a weekend,” Vanderver insists, “or we will get behind in placements.” Proceeds from the craft show and auction will be used primarily for veterinarian expenses. Vanderver says those expenses have climbed from $11,000 in the organization’s first year to $25,000 last year. With the growing number of dogs brought to the shelter, another increase is expected this year. Proceeds will provide crates

and wire kennels and help with expenses incurred during weekly adoption events as well. “Donations and fundraisers make all the difference for us,” Vanderver states. She welcomes any donations and will even work with donors to set up automatic deductions from their checking accounts. Since PC Pound Puppies is a 501(c)3 non-profit charity, all donations are tax deductible. Of course, she encourages families to adopt from a shelter and to give a needy dog a second chance at life. Interested families may see available pets at www.

Wildcat bowling team seeks funds for sustenance The Mt. Vernon High School Bowling Team is seeking donations from local businesses and individuals. The team is not supported by the school and receives no funding of any kind. All expenses are paid entirely by donations and fundraisers. The MVHS Bowling Team pays sanction fees to compete in the Indiana High School Tri-County Conference. The team has represented the area well,

placing at State level in team and individual events over the past 6 years. Mt. Vernon holds the youth Division I state title for 2010. The growing popularity of the sport has increased the team members, resulting in the need for new uniform shirts. Team members this year are : Caleb Cox, Taylor Erwin, Eli Goforth, Trevor Grant, John Gruber, Andy Kuper, Austin Mercer, Matthew Strupp, Myles

Utley, Dexter Volz, and DA Wilson; Coach is Jim Gruber. This year we hope to have another successful season and would appreciate any monetary donations. Please send your donation to Jim Gruber, 425 Southwind Drive, Mt. Vernon, In 47620. Thank you for whatever help you are able to give to help our bowlers continue to compete for the high school team.

Changes coming to Wabash Memorial Toll Bridge The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) is moving forward with another innovative way of doing business. Beginning Monday, November 8, motorists who travel across the Wabash Memorial Toll Bridge can sign up for the new “Wabash Pass” electronic tolling system. The electronic tolling system will allow users to place a transponder on the front windshield of the vehicle which will be scanned by an overhead reader at the toll bridge. Motorists will upload money on their account to be used to pay their tolls without having to carry cash or purchase advance tickets as they

Each year, Wadesville General Baptist Church Fellowship Center strives to collect a record number of shoe box gifts for needy children. This year, organizers hope to collect over 500 gift-filled shoe boxes from families, kids, churches, schools and civic organizations in the area. Since 1993, Operation Christmas Child, a project of international Christian relief

The Toll Bridge office will be open beginning Tuesday, November 9th from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. local time for motorists to come in and pick up the transponder to be used with the new system. Those extended hours will last through Wednesday, November 24. INDOT will also provide two Saturday sign up dates, November 13 and December 4. Motorists can come in between 7:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. local time on those Saturdays. Payment can be made by cash, check or unused tickets. After December 1, motorists may also visit www. w to order a transpond transponder or add money t their acco to account. At that time, t will al they also be able to pay b e-check by e-check, debit card or c card. If motorists are credit u to come to the ofunable fice or do not n have access to t interne the internet, they may also

contact INDOT. Please call 1-800-279-5758 and ask for the “Wabash Pass”. Our staff will take the necessary information and process the necessary equipment. To continue the practice of being good stewards of the Taxpayer’s dollars, INDOT has elected to install this system. The bridge is not a part of the Federal Highway Register and is not eligible for federal funding for repairs or replacement. The structure was originally built in 1956 and recently underwent improvements. It is currently in year 53 of its estimated 75 year life span. The State did not want to entertain the notion of increasing tolls for the bridge. The last increase was in 1984. In order to secure the funding required for the necessary repairs and replacement, refining the tolling process was necessary. By switching to the automated system the

State will have a reduction in operating costs and allowing those funds to be retained for capital improvements. As a part of the progress, there will be lane restrictions as the equipment is installed. Construction could begin as early as Monday, November 8 and should be complete no later than Friday, November 19, weather, equipment and material dependent. Recognizing there will be glitches to be worked through; the electronic system will run through a test period beginning December 1. For the month of December, the transponders will actually be scanned and customer accounts reviewed to ensure the equipment is operating properly. During this time motorists will continue to pay fees manually at the booth. The actual go-live date for the system and debiting of tolls from motorists accounts will begin January 1, 2011.

Warrum’s warmth is a safe bet for her neighbors. She takes four special four-legged canine friends into her home when their parents are gone. Of course, her favorite is her granddog Knox, as she describes him, “a 110 pound Lab that thinks he’s a lap dog,” She laughs and recalls one of Knox’s adventures when he was found at the Red Geranium swimming on the lake with the swan. Knox answers to Warrum’s only son, Jake Warrum, an

attorney in Posey County. In her leisure, Warrum becomes a serious Texas Hold ‘Em tournament player having won first place at tournaments in both French Lick and Las Vegas. Paris is, however, her favorite place to play. “It’s very interesting playing in another language,” she says, “but cards are cards.” It seems to be in the cards for Warrum to be a winner wherever she goes.

New Harmony Town Councilwoman Linda Warrum barely remembers her native Connecticut and considers herself a happy Hoosier with roots in Posey County since 1976. Moving to New Harmony from St. Wendel in late 1999, she comments, “I live in a very special place, New Harmony, with very special neighbors.” Warrum has certainly done her part to make New Harmony a special place to live. She’s served for the past three years, since 2008, on the New Harmony Town Council. Visitors to New Harmony have enjoyed her work as an interpreter for Historic New Harmony and have listened to her relate the town’s history. In addition, she is a member of Kiwanis and holds a place on the New Harmony Town Plan and Historic Preservation Commission. She worships at St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church.
