By Dave Pearce Just when Posey County officials and officials from Aventine thought things could not be more complicated, they did just that at Tuesday morning’s Posey County Council meeting. The Council denied an abatement for Bristol Myers during the same meeting. The Council voted unanimously to deny a 15-day extension for the completion of the local Aventine plant for abatement purposes. Later in the meeting, the Council voted 5-3 to deny an abatement for Bristol-Myers who had recently completed an addition to the Mount Vernon site. Bristol Myers representatives claimed that they could not come before the Council (as is required for abatement consideration in Posey County) before the expansion was completed

because of the potential risk of exposing the nature of the facility. Bristol Myers is one of the world’s leading pharmaceutical companies and animal experimentation is carried on at the Mount Vernon site. Aventine Plant Construction Supervisor Jeff See told the council and those in attendance that the company was attempting to do everything in its power to abide by the terms of the original abatement. He told the council that as of Sept. 1, 2010, the company had spent $255.5 million on the facility. He also told the council that three large contracts had recently been awarded to local contractor Industrial Contractors and the 43 employees were already in place and that over 20 of them are residents of Posey County. He also said that offers of employment for five other positions had been declined by Posey County

residents. Following See’s presentation, Jennifer Keppler of the law firm of Berger and Berger told the council that members need to make sure that Aventine’s statements are true, stating that she did not believe Aventine was employing as many Posey County residents as it claimed. Keppler told the council in an earlier meeting that she was representing “some residents of Posey County.” Her firm also represents several local labor unions. During the discussion, Council member Bud Parkinson, who has been aligned with local labor unions in opposition to the awarding of abatements to Aventine, indicated his continued belief that Aventine has not done what he be-

Mount Vernon awarded $6.5 million grant for sewer work

Viking Class of 85 meets

By Pam Robinson Mount Vernon Mayor John Tucker received much-anticipated news on Friday, September 17: The City of Mount Vernon has been awarded a federal community block development grant of $6,572,000 administered by the Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs, or OCRA. Tucker said the grant will fund around half of the estimated $12 million Phase II sewer project. Mandated by the Indiana Department of Environmental Management, or IDEM, along with the EPA, Phase II will correct two combination sewer overflows, or CSOs, at Mill Creek by the city garage and near the wastewater treatment plant itself. Tucker explained that the CSOs occur during heavy rains when storm water and sewer sanitation at the same drain overflow, depositing raw sewage in Mill Creek and the Ohio River. The City of Mount Vernon has received the state and federal mandate to correct these CSOs within five years. Pulling out

Even Santa chips in to help PCCF auction By Pam Robinson St. Philip native David Belcher has donated a special item for the Posey County Community Foundation For Good For Ever Auction on Thursday, October 28: an evening with his long-time friend, Santa Claus. Belcher met Santa in 2002 when working with Santa’s helpers at Evansville’s Pavilion. From then on, he has remained close to Santa, often engaging him to visit deserving boys and girls across the Tri-State. Children will know when they’ve met the real Santa. He’s dressed in layers to accommodate his Christmas Eve trip to varying climates around the world. Over his pants and jacket, he wears a shin-length cape. Atop the cape rests a shoulder-length stole. On his left hand, he wears a solid gold ring bearing his image, his eyes twinkling with diamonds. His ring is engraved with Baby Jesus in the manger on one side and Christmas candy canes on the other side. Around his belt, he carries his black leather strap of sleigh bells bearing the names of his reindeer. His walking stick pays another tribute to his nine reindeer with a hand-carved likeness of each one, including Rudolph. Like Santa, Belcher believes, “You can’t do too much for kids.” Eleven and a half years ago, he retired after 35 years of service with Bristol-Myers Squibb. Once retired, he joined Evansville’s Hadi Temple and since then has made 261 trips to transport kids to the Shrine Hospital in St. Louis. He holds the record as the most prolific driver at the Hadi Temple. Belcher’s donation of an evening with Santa is one of 15 live auction items that will go to the high bidder. In addition, over 70 silent auction items will be featured. All proceeds from the For Good For Ever Auction will be placed in the Posey County Community Foundation’s Administrative Endowment Fund. This auction will be your chance to do a little holiday shopping and to support your Foundation all at the same time. The doors of the 4-H Community Center in New Harmony will open at 5:00 p.m. The evening begins with a catered dinner and entertainment from Clift the Drifter. The silent auction will start at 6:30 p.m. followed by the live auction. Tickets are $25 per person. A complete list of all auction items, along with ticket information, is on the PCCF website at www.poseycommunityfoundation.

Continued on Page A8 Corrections and clarifications: In last week’s issue of the Posey County News, we ran a story about Amy Stephens opening a new photography studio in Poseyville. In the story, we stated that she believed the building had also been a photography studio in the past. This was an error. Also, in last week’s edition, in the Mount Vernon School Board meeting report, we reported that “School Board hopeful Kim Jackson questioned if this (insurance) increase meant a raise for the district’s educators. Jackson indicated that her question was “Is the increase in the Sants Claus, disguised here as David Belcher, is one of the many insurance premium going to be passed from the employer to the employee?” who will help the Posey County Community Foundation Auction. We strive to provide accurate news stories and we apologize for the error. Photo by Pam Robinson

Stories are better told from first-hand perspective Often after a joke that doesn’t seem all that funny, you’ll hear, “I guess you had to be there.” Or sometimes when you will hear someone telling how exciting or how funny something was that they witnessed, you TRUTH... will hear the same thing. I STRANGER understand what it means THAN but this week, I learned first FICTION hand just how important it is BY DAVE to “be there.” PEARCE At the Posey County News, we make every effort to make it, in person, to every city, school, and county meeting in Posey County. While some papers and other news sources survive on what we old-timers call “absentee reporting,” there is nothing like being there to tell the story. Regular attendance also gives one a better sense of the overall picture rather than the occasional “snapshot” you get from many sources. With my schedule, I get very little time to get away. And even when I do go, it is often filled with cell phone calls and laptop conversations and usually is not all that beneficial. It is always good to get away but, again, it is always so important “to be there.” I took advantage of a great opportunity this past week. Local gospel musician Ryan Seaton is setting out on a solo career. The local group, The Conquerers Quartet with at least two Stewartsville musicians, appeared with Seaton at the National Quartet Convention held this past week in Louisville, Ky. The highlight of the week was listening to probable-GOP presidential candidate Sarah Palin as she addressed more than 10,000 at

Freedom Hall. Candidates for political office at all levels throw themselves out to the national media to become “new raw meat.” Regardless of the party affiliation, everyone who is willing to turn their lives into a literal circus by running for public office is either to be admired or tested for brain damage. If there is a flaw in your past, present or future, someone will be there to find it. And how many flawless people are left out there? Palin talked about the circus that her life has become since the call came from John McCain a couple of years ago. She told several stories of incidents which became headline news almost immediately. She began with the “borrowed wardrobe.” As many will remember, the decision to call Palin came at the 11th hour. Palin said that it was all she could do to make a decision, then make arrangements to get to the places she needed to be, arrange for her family and their well-being, and head off to the convention. During the question-answer session following her speech, she was asked if she would do things the same way again. Her answer was that she would;, however, she would make sure she had time to pack this time to give the media something else to talk about. She then relayed the story of her twoyear-old Downs Syndrome child. She said that with her, it was never a choice as to whether or not to have the child, but it did

take some time to prepare herself, mentally and physically. That is why she told no one outside of a few intimate friends and family of her pregnancy until she was in her seventh month. She learned of the probability of Downs Syndrome in the twelfth week. Since the baby came five weeks early, the media knew of the pregnancy for only three weeks. Stories immediately surfaced that it could not possibly be her child since she had been pregnant only three weeks. I try to keep an open mind when it comes to politics. I award my vote to the individual rather than the party. For someone who does as much public speaking as Palin, I was a little surprised at how rough the start was. Seeking common ground with the Southern Gospel fans in attendance, she insisted that she loves “country” music and mispronounced the names of a couple of the more prominent country gospel groups. But once she became comfortable, you learned right away that this is a woman with strong convictions who does not mind sharing them. While you or I may not agree with everything she stands for or has to say, you have to admire anyone who is willing to face the controversial questions without the usual political “circle talk.” She takes little time to tell you where she stands on an issue. She spoke for about 45 minutes and I was glad I had made the trip. It is not every day that I hear a former vice-presidential candidate speak. Connie and I enjoyed the day or two away and I really did refuse to answer my cell phone while we were away. I did spend just

a few minutes each night replying to emails I received while I was out of the offices. But once I got home, I realized what I had missed while I had been gone. The United Way Breakfast was on Wednesday and there were several other events that took place while I was gone including the North PoseyHeritage Hills football game and the Field of Dreams Marching Band Invitational at North Posey. When I got back and sat down to write the stories, I immediately realized the importance of “being there.” You can get all the quotes and input from individuals who attended the events but unless you are there, it is so tough to put emphasis and feeling into a story. It is impossible to write your best and give all the details because you simply weren’t there to see and hear them with your own eyes and ears. I have to admit that I enjoyed my minivacation. We ate supper with our son one evening and, overall, it was an enjoyable trip. But I have realized that just looking at the score on a sheet of paper doesn’t allow me to experience the passion and the excitement of the events I missed. Palin is aware there are people who believe her to be no more than a “ditz.” She is aware that there are people who think of her as an “air head.” However, it could be just another case of “you have to be there.” If you are still convinced that she is nothing more than an airhead with nothing important to say, please let me know the next time someone offers you $50,000 for a 45minute speech. I’ll be happy to come and take a listen.

Poetry provides artistic escape, a way of expression Poets have always seemed larger than life to me. To me, the ability to pack emotion and thought into just a few words rates as talent of the highest order. No poet myself, I ad- FOR THE mire those who lend expres- RECORD sion to our deepest-felt truths and especially enjoy hearing BY PAM poems read aloud. ROBINSON So with great anticipation, I sat recently on a Friday night with my poet friend Jessica Thompson as we waited for the Lexington, Ky., Gypsy Poetry Slam to begin. The Gypsy Poetry Slam was part of the Kentucky Women Writers Conference, and it was a new event for me. All I knew was poets would perform their own work and the audience would help to decide the champion, who would receive a $300 cash prize.

The half dozen poets, aged 20-something to 40-something, performed from memory with enthusiasm and passion. The poetry slam consisted of prepared soliloquies, mini-movies, if you will. At the end of each performance, judges from the audience held up a card, like at the Olympics, with their rating—7.5, 8.2, 9.7 or the elusive perfect 10 –while the rest of the audience booed in disagreement or stomped our feet and applauded in approval. Poets performed for three minutes each in two rounds with the high score declaring the winner. Four-time National Poetry Slam Champion, Patricia Smith, was the headliner. She gave a dazzling performance for the competitors to emulate. It was an evening of great entertainment even for an old

nonfiction writer like me. A young red-haired woman from Oklahoma named Lauren, my favorite, won the poetry slam. Two days later, I saw her again, and she signed a copy of her book of poetry for me. I treasure it as much as my copy of the national bestseller “The Zookeeper’s Wife” signed by visiting author Diane Ackerman. I respect Lauren‘s courage to continue writing poetry. After all, as upcoming young author Heather Sellers was obliged to answer when asked why she switched from writing poetry to writing memoir, “I want to sell books.” Most American readers want little, if anything, to do with poetry. A world without poetry would be like a world bereft of art or music—ugly. I know people who get along without poetry (or art and music, for that matter), but I marvel at their self-imposed deprivation. (I know peo-

ple who don’t floss either, but they obviously don’t see Dr. Volz—or care about mouth scum.) Not only does poetry reveal truths about life, but it also provides escape from boredom. I’ve heard people complain about their difficulty in understanding poems. They might think of them as word teasers, like the crossword puzzle. If for nothing else, poems are good for slowing the onset of Alzheimer’s disease. Other poems are there just for the sheer pleasure of rolling words off the tongue, like “Jabberwocky.” All provide a deeper appreciation of the spoken and written word. Words shape our world. It’s up to us if we choose our words so we build a window with a view or stare at a blank wall. As the 19th century poet John Keats wrote, “A thing of beauty is a joy forever.”

Normally, it takes about 20 minutes. It must have been the humidity. Unlike the stories to be found in our beloved Valley Weekly Miracle, this story didn’t have to be checked for accuracy, spelled right, proofread, set in type or printed. No one had to put a bunch of them in a machine,

Gavel Gamut’s “Rumors Confirmed” The story that a young Negro man was thrown alive into the fire box of a steam engine in October 1878 has been generally accepted as true but hard to confirm, until now. During one week of that October one hundred and thirty-two years ago, seven Posey County AfricanAmerican men were murdered by several groups of white men in our county. One man was shot and then stuffed into the hollow trunk of a tree. One was cut into pieces and thrown into an outhouse. Four were lynched on the campus of the courthouse. And one was, according to one eyewitness, burned to death in a steam engine. On August 15, 2010 at about 6:15 p.m. Peg and I were at the post office in New Harmony when Basil Stratton approached our vehicle and introduced himself. Basil had read my accounts of the events of 1878 and wanted to tell me what

his grandfather had told him on two separate occasions. Basil now lives on the old Griffin Road and is a mem-

He was on his way to the Legion when he saw me waiting in the car while Peg mailed some letters. After introducing himself, Mr. Stratton told me he was born in Posey County in 1937 and had graduated from high school here then immediately joined the Marines. Basil’s maternal grandfather, Walker M. Bennett, was born in 1868 and was ten years old when he was with four white men at the railroad depot in October 1878. Basil either was not told or does not remem-

ber the names of the white men. His grandfather told him the white men were angry because they believed the black man had murdered his pregnant, white girlfriend. According to the news accounts of that time, the white prostitute, Annie Mc Cool, had been murdered in September 1878, allegedly by her “Negro paramour” because she was pregnant. Walker Bennett told Basil that the men captured the black man near the train depot that was located where the Mt. Vernon Thrift Shop is now. They threw him into the fire box, but because his body did not conduct sufficient heat, the train engine would not run. What was left of the body had to be removed and replaced with coal. I asked Basil if he minded if I wrote about his grandfather’s account and he told me, “No”. He said his grandfather thought what the men did was justified by

what they believed the black man had done. Of course, Basil did not agree but, as he told me, things were different then. But Basil thought it was important for the truth to come out. An irony pointed out to me by Basil was the coincidence of where the young Black man was killed and where President Harry S. Truman’s Whistle Stop Campaign stopped in 1948. President Truman spoke from his train car at the Mt. Vernon depot. Of course, it was President Truman who, by his Presidential Executive Order, integrated the United States armed forces on July 26, 1948. Next week another eyewitness account of the events of October 1878 will be discussed. If you have the time and inclination to follow along, we will meet again. And should anyone else have information about these events, please let me know. It is a small county and I am pretty easy to find.

either. But then, how many times does the V.W. Miracle get a story this hot? It began at 9 a.m. dur-


ing the post-breakfast coffee break at the philosophy counter of the Mule Barn coffee shop. Our chamber of commerce, Delbert McLain, popped in to tell us of a proposed project so unbelievably fabulous that mere life here in the valley would never be the same again. “A group of Spanish investors,” Delbert said, wiping the foam from his lips, “are looking into the concept of a proposed subdivision out by the dump. This, my friends, would be Outside Money coming to the valley.” “What will they call the place, Del?” asked Doc. “Basura Vista Estates,” Delbert said. “That’s Spanish, you know.” That was at nine. Shortly

after that, the members of the world dilemma think tank went to jobs and gardens and wherever someone would tolerate them and met again at the Mule Barn for lunch at noon. But Dud, in the meantime, asked his wife what “basura” meant. Anita said it was pronounced Basra and was a city in Iraq. Anita went to the Curl Up ‘N Dye beauty salon for a tune-up and told Evelyn about the new subdivision. Evelyn told the next three ladies to get “done,” and one of them told several people at the supermarket. So at noon, with a quorum of philosophers present at the Mule Barn, it surprised few when Bert walked up to the guys and said, “Have you heard? A bunch of terrorists are going to build a training camp out by the dump and move in tanks and helicopters!” Let’s see the Valley Weekly Miracle beat that. ---------Sponsored by: www.

Habitat help sought By Pam Robinson The 2010 Habitat Build is underway in Mount Vernon. Black Township Trustee Secretary Jaime Eickhoff, approved applicant for the build, has just recently put in her 150 hours of “sweat equity,” the volunteer labor required to select a house style. The single mom of three daughters will now see and help with the building of her “Parade” style home, a one-story home with an open floor plan and a wraparound porch, at 913 E. Second Street. Volunteer Build Coordinator Jim Bartlett expects the home to be under roof by October 1 and completed and ready for inspection by October 30. With the building permit issued, workers removed two diseased trees from the property last week. This week, workers will be digging and pouring the foundation, and early next week, they will lay the block foundation. All this preliminary work leads up to Saturday, September 25, the first full day of the build. Bartlett is recruiting 20-25 people to split into two crews for the first day of the build. One crew will build the floor system and lay the floor joists while the other builds the framing components for the outside walls as well as the long center interior wall. He is especially interested in securing the commitment of two area carpenters. An additional four or five people will be needed to finish the walls on the following Tuesday, September 28. A crew from Warehouse Services, Inc., or WSI, will set the trusses, deck the roof and lay down black paper on Wednesday, September 29. Bartlett is hoping Constructor Ryan Harms and his crew will follow with laying down the shingles and installing the roof vents and drip edge on Thursday, September 30. Additional volunteers will be needed on the five Saturdays and a few weekdays following the Saturday, September 25, building start date. As in the past, Bartlett hopes local churches will provide lunch every Saturday of the build. Work commences at 7 a.m., with an 11 a.m. lunch break, and finishes around 4 p.m. Bartlett is asking for volunteers to donate the electrical and plumbing work for the home. The donation is worth $2,000 toward the cost of the build for each of the services. Volunteers may contact Bartlett at 838-2597 and are asked to go the Evansville Habitat website at www.evansvillehabitat. org to register online. Tax-deductible donations are also being accepted to raise the $40,000 still needed to cover the cost of the build.

GENERAL NEWS & CHURCH CHURC Cynthiana native Seaton to perform local concert

Local gospel music artist Ryan Seaton talks with fans at his booth at last week’s national Quartet Convention.

Seeds from the Sower By Michael A. Guido A man was wheeled into the operating room. Everything was in readiness for his surgery. Just as the surgeon was about to make the incision,

he noticed a paper taped to the patient’s body. Bending over, he read one word: “Think.� That’s good advice for all of us. But someone has said,

“Five percent of the people think, ten percent think they think, and the rest would rather die than think.� Thoughts are powerful. Businesses, cities, nations

and destinies follow them. That’s why the Psalmist said to the Lord, “I thought about the wrong direction in which I was headed, and turned around and came running back to You.�

Imagination Station is remarkable legacy When dignitaries from the Mount Vernon community cut the ribbon in front of the gates of the Imagination Station at College Park Sunday, September 26, the event will signal the beginning of a new era of commitment to the future. Everyone is invited to attend the tenth year anniversary celebration and fund raiser for the Imagination Station at

College Park. The event will be held Sunday, September 26 from 1 to 4 p.m. in front of the Imagination Station entrance adjacent to the Alexandrian Public Library parking lot. “The Imagination Station is the result of remarkable public cooperation,� said Alexandrian Public Library director Marissa Priddis. The Imagination Station

at College Park, Mount Vernon’s’ accessible play space, has been in service to the community for ten years. The first ribbon cutting took place at the completion of the playground on October 8, 2000. Community leaders spearheaded by the Alexandrian Public Library board of trustees, the Friends of the Alexandrian Public Library, Sabic and the town of Mount Vernon all are coming together to rededicate the park to area youth. “It is gratifying to see so many individuals and companies come together for our children,� says Friends of the Alexandrian Public Library president Kathy Nelson. “This project shows how much the community cares.� These days with television, video games and Internet it is hard to imagine kids going to a park to exercise their bodies and their imaginations. Yet they still do in Mount Vernon, Indiana. It is all due to the efforts of a community wide project undertaken ten years ago on 14,000 square feet of ground donated by the Alexandrian Public Library.

Ample parking for the park is available on the residential streets on the northern and western sides of the park and in the library parking lot on the southern. The park is open from dawn to dusk seven days a week. Community leaders and individuals all came together in 2000 to construct over the course of five days, October 4 to 8, what would be called “The Imagination Station at College Park� for the benefit of the community youth. All aspects of the $100,000 construction project relied on donations of money, tools, time and materials from all over Mount Vernon. A $10,000 grant was provided by the Build Indiana Funds. Like mostly wooden structures the Imagination Station had, despite the best best efforts of volunteers, not endured the effects of weather and continual use over the years without notable damage. A few activities have even been damaged to an extent that they were removed. But efforts have been unerway since early August 2010 to restore the park to its former glory.

Groundbreaking for new health care facility set “September 8, 2010 marks the ground breaking on a new clinic for Owensville, Indiana that will significantly improve the scope of health care that is offered in this community”, according to Tom O’Niones, President and Owner of Transcendent Health care, whose Owensville health care facility will be the host for the new clinic. Owensville, which has not had a physician practice in the community since the passing of long-time resident physician, Dr. Dickenson, has had to turn to neighboring communities for many of the health care services that many towns may take for granted. With the completion of its new facility late this year, being built as an addition to Transcendent Health care of Owensville on Highway 165 West, that will no longer be the case. O’Niones had originally planned on adding a 2,000 square foot addition to the facility’s current rehabilitation space for the physical, and occupational therapy and speech-language pathology services that are provided to the residents there. However, after consulting with Owensville community leaders and colleagues in the industry, the plan has evolved into a full service clinic offering those same therapies, on an outpatient basis to the community at large. To help meet the primary care needs of the community, the clinic will also staff a nurse practitioner under the professional supervision of one or more licensed physicians practicing within the communities which border Owensville. Transcendent Health care of Owensville is no stranger to rehabilitation services. The facility currently provides in excess of 25 treatments, in the three aforementioned disciplines, each day to its residents. Expanding the services on an outpatient basis is new to Owensville and is usually only attempted in much larger communities. Meanwhile, the presence of the nurse practitioner, recognized as a licensed mid-level provider with the authority to prescribe medicine and authorize treatment, will mean that residents, both of the facility and of the community at large, will ultimately stay in town for many of these services. The presence of the practitioner allows the services to

be provided more economically, while making sure that patients are afforded the oversight of a physician for more-complex clinical decisions. “After meeting with physicians and leaders in our community,” O’Niones added, “it became apparent to me that if health care services are going to grow here in Owensville, we are going to have to do our part. We already provide health care services in this communityseven days a week, 24 hours a day.” The medical community has embraced the project and several physicians have stepped forward to help guide and plan for the clinic. Transcendent of Owensville Medical Director, Quentin Emerson, M.D., whose office is in nearby Ft. Branch, is a long-time Owensville

resident. Dr. Emerson has been championing the need for a mid-level practitioner in Owensville for quite some time. Dr. Bruce Brink, Jr., D.O. is a third generation physician in nearby Princeton, who currently utilizes nurse practitioners in his own practice and at Tulip Tree, a community-based clinic in Ft. Branch where he serves as Medical Director. According to O’Niones, “Both Dr. Brink and Dr. Emerson have been instrumental in helping us to make this a reality.” Formal business arrangements among the providers have not been completed but all are in agreement that the services are much needed within the community and have committed to forging the appropriate relationships to make them happen.

• • • • • • • • • • •

INGREDIENTS 1/2 cup of unsalted butter, room temperature 1 cup of sugar 1 egg, room temperature 1 cup of mashed bananas (about 2 ½ large bananas) 1 teaspoon of baking soda 2 cups of flour pinch of salt 1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon 1/2 teaspoon of ground mace or nutmeg 1/2 teaspoon of ground cloves 1 cup of pecans (or substitute for sliced almonds, walnuts, or chocolate chips)

DIRECTIONS 1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add the egg and continue to beat until the mixture is light and fluffy. 2. In a bowl, mix the mashed bananas and baking soda. Let sit for 2 minutes. The baking soda will react with the acid in the bananas which in turn will give the cookies their lift and rise. 3. Mix the banana mixture into the butter mixture. Mix together the flour, salt, and spices and sift into the butter and banana mixture and mix until just combined. 4. Fold into the batter the pecans or chocolate chips if using. Drop in dollops onto parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Bake for 11-13 minutes or until nicely golden brown. Let cool on wire racks. Yields: about 30 cookies

The lesson was written by their teacher while attending a Summer Institute at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia.

SCHOOL New Harmony School Board handles routine items By Pam Robinson Within 30 minutes, the New Harmony School Board wrapped up its Thursday, September 9, meeting. First on the docket was approval of the 2011 budget and all related documents. A bit later, two votes approved personnel matters under consideration. First, the board accepted the resignation of Emily Pruitt as junior high volleyball coach and of Jerry Williams as baseball coach. With the same vote, the board approved 10 extra hours for Carrie Parmenter, hired E. Norman Wynn as junior varsity basketball coach and approved Deanna DeVoy as grade school volleyball volunteer. In a separate vote, the board approved five extra hours for Shelly Eagan with board member Jim Eagan abstaining from the vote. In other business:

•The board approved placing policies on review. •The board approved the following fundraisers: yearbook, PAT Fazoli spaghetti night, class of 2016 healthy snack sale and class of 2012 Kunstfest booth. •The board approved an extracurricular activity account for the fourth grade field trip and accounts for the classes of 2014, 2015 and 2016. •The board voted to accept the following donations: an anonymous donation of $100 for the class of 2012, a $250 donation from Deaconess Hospital for athletics and a donation of volleyball socks from Bill Loveridge. The next regular meeting of the New Harmony School Board will be held on Thursday, October 14, 2010, at 6 p.m. in the school media center.

Grant, from Page 1A a past issue of the Evansville Courier & Press, Tucker says he wants to comply with the mandate in a timely manner to avoid fines such as the City of Evansville faces—up to $37,500 a day—for similar problems. Indeed, city officials allowed for Bernardin Lochmueller & Associates to complete the engineering on Phase II so the project would be “shovel-ready.” Tucker said that action helped the city in the scoring for the grant. Tucker expects the bidding process to begin in March 2011, so Phase II construction will be a reality next year. Phase II will provide ad-

ditional pump stations, almost 5,000 feet of new sewer lines, new storage tanks and an updated treatment plant, doubling its capacity to prepare for future economic development. Tucker said residents will have the “blow softened” in increased sewer rates because of the $6.5 million grant along with the revenue expected from Aventine for its water and sewer usage. “We worked hard to secure this grant in order to insure the least impact on the residents while meeting the demands that this mandate has put on Mount Vernon,” Tucker said.

Council, from page 1A should have been done in order to receive the abatements. Just prior to the vote, Posey County Council President Bob Gentil indicated that it is his belief that the county does not want to be able to tell companies how to run their businesses. He also admitted that the county probably has a weakness in the area of tax phase-ins and he asked for a committee to help address the issue. “We don’t want to be ‘branded’ as unfriendly to business,” Gentil said. “There are businesses out there right now looking for a way to eliminate Mount Vernon (Posey County) from their list of potential sites. All they are asking for is an extension of time.” “What I am recommending is that we allow tax abatement of 95 percent on what has been done as of Sept. 1,” Gentil continued. “Are we going to please labor? Probably not. Are we going to please Aventine? Probably not.” The Council was informed that as they requested, representatives from the assessor’s office had performed a walk-through last week at the Aventine site and 95 percent of the plant was completed as of Sept. 1, 2010. But Parker spoke again in opposition to the allowance of the abatement and another short discussion ensued. Councilman Alan Blackburn read a sentence from the original abatement agreement that said the machines would be operating by now. Although See had told the council that the machines were being tested and would be ready to go on-line

in just a few days, Blackburn retorted that the machines were not in full operation by the original date of the agreement and that the extension of time should not be granted. With little more said, the council then voted unanimously to deny approval of the extension. However, with the denial of the extension, a form from the assessor’s office was placed in the file that shows the plant at 95 percent completion as of the Sept. 1, 2010, walk-through. The Aventine ethanol production plant which is almost completed on Mount Vernon’s east side first became complex when the original Aventine Company fell victim to tough economic times and was forced to file bankruptcy. Tax abatements that had been brought before the county had been negotiated with the pre-bankruptcy company. The construction site sat idle for over a year while oil prices stabilized and the company attempted to right the ship and finish Posey County’s second ethanol plant. But the underlying issue was Aventine’s decision to

hire an out-of-state contractor to complete the remaining 15 to 20 percent of the plant. Some 80 percent of the work on the plant had been done by local union labor prior to the bankruptcy. Aventine claimed that Fagen, Inc., was the best in the industry at building ethanol plants and they were fighting not only a local deadline but also an Environmental Protection Agency deadline for completion of the plant. Upon the plant’s anticipated completion, company officials must once again come before the Council to comply with form CF1, a completion form for those seeking abatements. The final decision as to Aventine’s abatement eligibility will be determined at that time. In other action: •The Council approved an additional $25,000 of the requested $50,000 for pauper’s attorney fees and another $5,000 for jury trial. The Council was told that there is already $1,500 in claims awaiting payment and that the county is already $11,000 in arrears for pauper attorney’s fees. •The Council appropriated

$450,000 from the highway fund into contractural services to pay for the recent completion of the paving of Ford Road and Darnell School Road. •The Council approved the second reading of a salary ordinance that would address the hiring of new county employees. New employees would be hired in at 90 percent of the current salary and the other 10 percent would be paid over time. Currently, new hires are hired in at 100 percent of the salary scale, meaning that someone could hire in and make the exact same amount as an employee who had been doing the same job for 10 years. •The Council approved the first reading of the Posey County Solid Waste management district and the Griffin-Bethel Township budget. The Council asked that a representative from the Wadesville-Center Township Fire Department be at the next meeting to provide additional information on their proposed budget. The Posey County Council will meet again on Tuesday, October 12, 2010, at 9 a.m. in the Hovey House.

The mother of the family said it was important to have United Way funds available for programs needed in the community that offered services including “giving my family a place to stay when they needed it.” The mother of a 6-year old child who was born with handicaps talked of the great progress her daughter has made through the programs available to her at United Way agencies, including the Rehabilitation Center. Her daughter is now in first grade, has a vocabulary of over 60 words, can sing about any song, rides a therapeutic bike, and a horse. The mother said to the group of United Way volunteers and to the public “Help make this the most successful campaign ever.” Keith Spurgeon, campaign chair, said to the volunteers that the United Way of Posey County campaign “is about Local People Helping Local People and the success of the campaign rests squarely on our shoulders.” He thanked them for working to make this a better community, and said “United Way is about making a positive difference in the lives of local people.” Leigh Ann Latshaw, Mount Vernon High School teacher and NEA president, said

Larry Williams, manager of McKim’s IGA in Mount Vernon, talks about his store and its employee’s support for the United Way and the Posey County community teachers understand the importance of a successful United Way campaign and having programs and services available in the community. She said “We get it.” They have a firm belief that there is a strong relationship between the vitality of a community and the success of students. She said it is important for everyone to act upon their beliefs – to become engaged in the community. She thanked all the volunteers for making a difference and helping the rest of the community get engaged in the United Way campaign. Keith Spurgeon recognized 2010 Pacesetters for the United Way of Posey County including St. Philip School, where the total employee participation increased 50%. St. Wendel School is included in the United Way of Posey County campaign for the first time and has significant response with the campaign not yet finished. St. Matthew School was also recognized. This Pacesetter has offered payroll deduction for several years for its employees. Total participation increased to involve both the school and office. Also recognized was New Harmony School, with Peggy Stewart as the campaign volunteer and Fran Thoele, school superintendent, representing the New Harmony Public School. This Pacesetter employer also offers payroll deduction. Participation in the campaign increased by 69 percent and there are 4 Leadership Givers. Keith Spurgeon also honored the MSD of Mt. Vernon,





represented by Tom Kopatich, school superintendent with Sue Nall and Jan Gmutza as campaign volunteers and the assistance of Mike Wheaton and Leigh Ann Latshaw, and said this Pacesetter employer offers payroll deduction for its employees. There are now 16 Leadership Givers, and this outstanding Pacesetter continues its campaign. The MSD of North Posey was also recognized. Carol Lupfer is the campaign volunteer and Todd Camp, school superintendent, accepted the certificate of recognition on their behalf. This Pacesetter is offering payroll deduction for the third year and the use of it is very popular. Even though its campaign is not yet finished there is already 1 Leadership Giver. Posey County LLC was honored as a Pacesetter. The campaign in this Pacesetter company had a corporate contribution increase of 7%, and with the employee campaign continuing, an increase of 5 percent and 2 Leadership Givers. Vectren was represented by Wayne Games and its campaign will be finishing in a few days, with over $25,000 pledged to date. Proceeds from a special event on-site went up 22%. CGB, represented by Scott Strickland, had another outstanding campaign with a full corporate match and 9 Leadership Givers. Cargill was represented by Donna Whitley and Molly Stalker and had 3 Leadership Givers, increased employee giving of 87%, and a full corporate match both locally and nationally, resulting in a 200 percent match. Keith Spurgeon, campaign chairman, announced an advance gift from CountryMark

Cooperative represented by Nelson Christian who presented an $8,000 corporate check. Phillip Andrews represented WSI and presented a corporate check for an advance gift. Steve Bennett announced that the CSB State Bank corporate contribution will increase by 25%. Barb Tennyson announced a corporate advance gift from Old National Bank Keith Spurgeon announced that Duke Energy Foundation had made a contribution for this campaign that tripled last year’s contribution.

St. Philip annual Burgoo coming to Posey September 26 It’s time to round up the kettles. Every year near harvest time, the members of the St. Philip Men’s Club gather to prepare and sell their famous burgoo. This year’s sale is Sept. 26, and the reputation of the soupy concoction has spread far and wide. Burgoo has been simmering annually at St. Philip for 50 years or so. It’s been the primary fund-raiser of the Men’s Club since 1958; before then, it was cooked at the church’s annual summer social. The church’s men’s club owns a 750 gallon kettle but 20 more kettles are needed to cook the 1200+ gallons of burgoo the club dishes out each year. Farmers used to loan the kettles they used for rendering lard and cooking liver sausage. Now the Men’s Club have all their own kettles which were purchased at various times. St. Philip’s burgoo (either BUR-go or burGOO, depending on who is talking) is composed of chicken and beef, carrots, potatoes, onions, cabbage, tomato juice, canned corn, navy beans, butter beans, pepper, salt, sugar and allspice. This list of ingredients is as

much as Ron Folz will divulge. The exact seasoning and amount of ingredients is secret and Jeff Wildeman is the only person allowed to measure the spices and place them in cloth bags to season the burgoo. The secret to making good burgoo is making it good. That’s all I’m allowed to tell you,” Wildeman said. One thing he will say is that the burgoo tastes the same every year, unlike burgoo made during frontier times, when every meat and vegetable available was thrown into the pot. “We don’t change a thing,” he said. Most of the meat and vegetables are bought now, whereas years ago parishioners donated most of the chicken, beef and vegetables. Each year preparations begin on Friday evening. The meat is stewed and the vegetables are washed, peeled and ground. The guys work through the night. Early Saturday morning volunteers set up all the kettles and clean them, take the chicken off the bones and grind it and the stewed beef. They then carefully parcel the ingredients to be added

to each of the 21 kettles lined up in the back of the church. The actual cooking begins around 11 p.m. after the meat and vegetables have been added along with the cloth bags containing the spices and the secret ingredient. Burgoo veterans have their jobs down pat. Some grind cabbage and vegetables, some stew the meats and others run the automatic potato peeler. The large kettle is equipped with an automatic stirring device, but it’s an all night vigil with the smaller kettles. It isn’t difficult finding volunteers because the event has turned into a social affair. There is no discrimination----teenagers, children and friends of club members offer their assistance. The volunteers stir until early Sunday morning when Folz pronounces the burgoo ready for sale. The burgoo sells fast and is usually gone before noon except for the soup that is held back to be sold in the cafeteria. The Men’s Club would like to make more but they can handle making only so much. Dan Horstman, publicity chairman for

the club, says that this is the sort of project that builds relationships and fellowship and brings about a spirit of cooperation and working together. St. Philip is a close-knit parish with hard working members. The response to the burgoo has been great with people coming from Kentucky, Illinois, Tennessee and other places to get the famous St. Philip Burgoo. To sweeten the day, a raffle will climax the event at 1:30 p.m. The grand prize of $20,000 and 20 other prizes will be given away. The tickets are $20 donation for each ticket with only 3,000 tickets being sold. You need not be present to win. (License# 119376) - The sale of burgoo begins at 7:30 a.m. Drive thru and carry-out patrons should bring their own containers or one can be purchased for a small fee. A lunch of burgoo, hamburgers, pie and drinks is sold in the St. Philip Center during the sale of burgoo outside. Volunteers help in the dining room, too. Philip is located six miles west of Evansville on St. Philip Road.

Wildcats fast start but finish too early in loss to Hatchets By Steve Joos The Washington Hatchets are undefeated and Indiana’s eighth-ranked Class 3A football team. The Mount Vernon Wildcats learned that the hard way Friday night. Joe McCormick rushed for 162 yards and four touchdowns as the visiting Hatchets erupted for 22 third-quarter points en route to a 42-14 victory over the Wildcats. Mount Vernon Coach Paul Maier was impressed with the Hatchets, but he was also highly disappointed with his team played. “We were not disciplined,” Maier said. “I don’t know how many yards in penalties we had tonight, but it was way, way too many. They came out, they lined up and they beat us.” The Cats didn’t execute in the first half and they weren’t focused both offensively and defensively, the coach added. Despite an “ugly” first half, Mount Vernon still held a 7-6 halftime lead, but the Hatchets’ defensive line gave quarterback Jason Stemple more trouble than he had been getting throughout the season and they were covering the Wildcat receiving corps, which also hampered Stemple’s effectiveness. In the second half, the Cats just didn’t seem ready to play, even after tying the game at 14-14 on a 10-yard Stemple to Logan Pace touchdown pass with 8:15 to go in the third chapter. The game was more like flag football—yellow flags, that is. The two teams were whistled for a combined total of 14 penalties and that doesn’t count the five times both squads committed off-setting fouls. The Wildcats had the worst of it, but just slightly, committing eight penalties that lost 69 yards. After having trouble with their first drive of the night, Mount Vernon opened the second quarter with a six-play, 62yard drive that ended with a 55-yard pass play from Stemple to Aaron Straub. Zac Deig’s kick put the Cats up 7-0 with 9:33 left in the period. The Hatchets got on the scoreboard with 2:54 left in the period, when signal-caller Kurtis Anthony hooked up with Brad Thornton on a pass play which covered 60 yards. The potential game-tying kick was blocked, leaving the Cats in front at the break 7-6.

Washington opened the second half with a quick-strike 57yard drive which took less than two minutes and was capped by Anthony’s 10-yard scoring run. McCormick ran the ball this time and his conversion gave the Hatchets a 14-7 lead. Mount Vernon came right back, as Will Terbeck returned the ensuing kick to the Wildcats’ 47-yard line, then Stemple reeled off three completions, as he and Pace polished off the strike with a 10-yard scoring play. Deig’s kick knotted things up again at 14-14, but that would be it for the Wildcats. Washington responded immediately, returning the Wildcat kickoff to their own 44-yard line and then McCormick burst through the defense and rambled 56 yards for the go-ahead score. After Mount Vernon was held on their next possession, Washington’s next possession started on the Mount Vernon 40-yard line. Four plays later, including one where the Cats gave up 16 yards on a penalty, McCormick took it in from nine yards out. Tanner Fritchle’s fourth extra point of the night made the score 28-14 with 4:46 to go. “Their whole offense caused us a lot of problems,” Maier said. “Fundamentally, we did not do what we needed to do to win football games. If you look at just a good overview of the game, fundamentally we broke down, we got rattled.” There were some bright spots (Straub caught five passes for 104 yards), but the Cats just didn’t play well on either side of the ball, according to the coach. The Cats simply failed to match Washington’s level of intensity or their effort, especially in the second half. In the fourth quarter, Dylan Erwin took over for the Hatchets, scoring on rounds of one and 13 yards to finish off the scoring. Maier said that his team was not doing what it needed to do fundamentally from its opening drive. He wasn’t sure what the problem was, but he promised that it wouldn’t happen this week. “Washington’s just a good football team,” the coach said. “And if you don’t come out ready to play, then the results are going to speak for themselves.” Wildcat quarterback Jason Stemple prepares to launch The results didn’t speak too well in Mount Vernon’s favor this pass to his open receivers during Friday night’s home Friday night. conference game with Washington.

Vikings play better, fall victim to Patriot fourth quarter By Dave Pearce For three quarters, defense was the rule as the North Posey Vikings travelled Friday night to Lincoln City to face the Heritage Hills Patriots. But when the North Posey defense bent a little bit in the fourth period, the always-tough Patriots took full advantage and ran on to a 35-11 victory. The Patriots have lost once (to rival Jasper) while the Vikings fell to 2-3 on the season. The first two scores of the night belonged to the Patriots as Tory Burch hit Drew Rosbottom for a 16-yard touchdown with 5:23 remaining in the opening period and the Patriots led 7-0. In the second period, the Vikings continued to move the ball but defense was the name of the game as the Patriots’ Ethan Coghill scored from two yards out with 4:29 remaining in the half to give the homestanding Patriots a 14-0 lead. But Viking fans can be proud of the way their team fought back. With time winding down in the half, kicker Nick Crumbacher hit a 31-yard field goal to get the Vikings on the scoreboard at 14-3 at half-time. The Viking defense came out of half-time fired up and the only score of the third quarter came on a one-yard run by Colton Motz. When Motz hit receiver Nick Neidig for the twopoint conversion, the Vikings were within a field goal with 3:31 to go in the third period. But in the final period, the Patriots took advantage of a couple of North Posey mistakes and came up with some fine plays of their own to score on an 11-yard run by Ben Hawkins with 10:45 remaining in the contest. The score remained 21-11 until the Patriots put two touchdowns on the board in the final four minutes to make the final score much more lop-sided than the game really was. With 4:03 remaining on the clock, back Ethan Coghill threw a pass to Nick Perkins and the game was all but decided. “It was a nicely executed play,” Gengelbach said, giving North Posey running back Cameron Calvert breaks loose for a short gain while No. 80 Jared Reidford looks to make credit to Bob Clayton’s Patriots. “They had been running the a hole. Photo by Dave Pearce. sweep all night and they came out with that. It wasn’t a pretty pass but it was all they needed.” The final score came when North Posey was forced to punt with 1:25 remaining. The Patriot’s special team (in the form of Coghill, again) ran the punt back 80 yards for the final score and the Heritage Hills win. But Gengelbach was extremely proud of his team and the effort they put forth. “They played extremely hard all game and they played hard all 48 minutes,” Gengelbach said of the Vikings. “That’s something we have been working on and I feel like they improved a whole lot on Friday night.” But Gengelbach pointed out that obviously, the objective of the night was to win the game but that did not take away from the fact that his team grew up a whole lot in a shot time in Spencer County. “They are an excellent short-pass team this year,” Gengelbach said, indicating that they may not have the deep threat going for them that they have in years past. “But they don’t beat themselves. They just don’t make many mistakes.” Both of those statement were verified by the fact that the Patriots hit on 15-of-19 passes, most of them for short yardage, as they accumulated 115 yards in the air. The Patriots were whistled for no penalties while the Vikings were called for four penalties and a total of 26 yards.

Vikings, from Page B1 “It was a well-played ballgame and was a little reminiscent of our 2005 state championship game,” Gengelbach said. “It was close until one big play kind of opened the floodgates.” The Vikings were able to run the ball with some success against Heritage Hills as Wes Harness finished with 75 yards in only 10 carries. Cameron Calvert got loose for 38 yards on 13 carries for the Vikings. Motz completed 8-of-18 passes for 86 total yards as Jared Reidford caught three for 49 yards and Neidig caught three for 28. Calvert caught a couple of passed for nine total yards. Jourdan Cox looked good on kick-off returns as he had three returns for a total of 52 yards while Harness has two for 23 and Cody Voelker had one for six yards. Defensively, senior Alex Maile had his best game of the year as he came up with 12 solo tackles and an assist and a sack. Almost all the Viking defense got in the books as Con-

ner Cain and Neidig had five tackles apiece while Luke Morrow and Brandon Baumgart had four apiece. Calvert, Chris O’Risky and Baumgart each had three tackles while Alec Werry, Kurt Seibert, Derek Voegel, Alex Goebel, Harness, Cox, Tanner Hobgood, Anthony Webb, Orry Weiss, Austin Little, and Reidford were each credited with a tackle. Webb and O’Ricky were credited with three tackle assists while Harness, Cox, Seibert,and Baumgart were each credited with two. The Vikings will hit the road again this Friday night for a 7 p.m. contest at Forest Park where the undefeated (5-0) Rangers await. The Rangers, in only their third season playing varsity football, have been very impressive in their five wins. “They have some big strong kids and I knew when they added football as a sport that if they got behind them like they do in basketball, baseball, softball, and even tennis that it wouldn’t be long till they had a good, solid program,” Gengelbach said. “They have good size and good quickness and we will have to be ready with everything we have.”

On November 2, 2010 the voters of Posey County will elect a prosecutor to serve our great community. There is a growing consensus among residents that new leadership is needed in this office. I believe that my values, experience, and energy make me the person for the job...

MY GOALS AS COUNTY PROSECUTOR: • Make prosecution of serious and dangerous felonies top priority over misdemeanor •

• •

and Protecting off P Posey C County ffrom serious and dangerous d traffi ffic cases. P i the h citizens ii i dd felonies will be my main concern. Take a stand against meth labs and those who sell drugs in our community. Meth use is an epidemic in Posey County. I believe one way to counteract this problem is to be aggressive and prosecute "meth cooks" to the fullest extent. Posey County deserves a prosecutor who will tackle this problem head-on. Increase communication and cooperation with local law enforcement. The officers in this county work hard to protect and serve. As prosecutor, I will work closely with law enforcement to help officers acheive their goals. I will be available for officers 24 hours a day to consult on cases and investigations. Increase child support collections for single parents in our county.

By Steve Joos Under Indiana High School Athletic Association rules, three teams advance out of the respective golf Sectional tournaments for boys and girls and three players off teams which do not advance to Regional competition. All three Regional qualifiers from the Evansville Sectional are from Posey County. Mount Vernon’s Kendyl Bourne will join North Posey teammates Allison Koester and Maggie Camp this weekend at Eagle Valley as the top three individuals coming out of Saturday’s Sectional at Fendrich Golf course. Not that their teams did not try to make the trip back to Evansville. The Lady Vikings and Lady Wildcats went 4-5 in the Sectional, with North Posey shooting a team score of 340 and Mount Vernon registering a 350. The Lady Vikings were up by five strokes for third place before Reitz and Memorial shot past them for a trip to the Regional. Koester’s 82 (41-41) topped the individuals, with Bourne chipping in an 84 (40-44) and Ahrens an 85 (44-41) to round out the field. Lady Vikings’ coach Kevin Wassmer was pleased with the way his team performed despite the near miss in making the Regional as a group. “We played really well today,” Wassmer said. “We did, we had a good chance and the girls played well. This is only the second year we’ve had a team score and to finish fourth in this Sectional is a good job.” Unfortunately for North Posey, some higher scores on one end of the course or another may have allowed Memorial to sneak past them. Maggie Camp struggled on the back nine and finished with an 86 (40-46), while Kelsey Teel carded an 87 (45-42), but the Lady Tigers may have just been better, especially number-one Memorial golfer Dana Hayden, who finished with a 71 and number-two Kelly Morgan, who added an 81. Most of the Lady Vikings are fairly new to the game, which made their Sectional efforts even more impressive, according to Wassmer. “We shot 170 and 170, so we shot the same on both sides,” the coach explained. “A putt here or a chip there would have made the difference, but that’s part of the game.” Wassmer also encouraged other girls to come out for the team in the future and was proud of the team’s accomplishments for this season, which included a Pocket Athletic Conference championship to go with the regional qualifiers. Speaking of experience, taking in the lessons from a ninetime Evansville City Men’s champion was one of the keys to Koester’s success at Fendrich. “I was hitting the ball well and listening to what the coach told me,” Koester said. “Basically, I was just learning and listening to my coach and all that he’s taught me over the years.” Ahrens finally got her chipping to work Saturday. That part of her short game had been giving the senior trouble for most of the season and she got it to work just in time. “I struggled a lot,” she said. “I just kept hitting everything short and I couldn’t get anything to work.” Ahrens and Teel were the original members of the link Lady Vikings and having one of the seniors represent North Posey at the Regional was also an accomplishment. “It’s great to be playing after three years, but I wish the whole team were going with us,” she said. “All the girls played great, the team played great. It was a lot of fun.” Taylor Patton rounded out the North Posey contingent with a 101 (53-48), chopping five stroke off her score after making the turn. Mount Vernon coach Dave Bell felt that his team did the best it could, although the back nine wasn’t too kind to them. “I was a little disappointed with the back nine,” he said. “I thought we’d play it a little better, but the girls went out and did the best they could. We shot a nice score and came in fifth.” The short game was once again the culprit as three of the five Lady Cats in the Sectional saw their scores go up after

Motz Is second, Wildcat team third at Princeton Invitational By Steve Joos North Posey’s Hunter Motz was a minute ahead of his nearest competition from Mount Vernon, but the Wildcats had a higher team finish at Tuesday’s Princeton Invitational boys’ cross country meet. The Cats were third at the Gibson Southern Fairgrounds with 106 points, while the Vikings came in eighth with 106. Motz finished second in the boys’ race at Princeton, with a time of 15:56, while Ken Renshaw The Viking senior cam in 22 seconds behind individual champ Josh Genet of Northeast Dubois, while Renshaw gave the county two harriers in the top 10, finishing sixth with a time of 16:51, almost a minute better than any Princeton runners and over 20 seconds better than the time he set in winning the season-opening dual meet at Brittlebank Park. Castle and the Jeeps were far ahead of the rest of the field, with the Knights winning the race 58-60. Mount Vernon was four points in front of Jasper, which nipped Pike Central 110111 for fourth place. Washington (122) and Princeton (168) each came in ahead of the Vikings, while Boonville rounded out the field. The Lady Vikings did better in the girls’ race, finishing fifth with 133 points, while Mount Vernon’s newly established team was eighth (180). North Posey’s Shay Voegel was the lone county runner to make the top 10 at Princeton, finishing fourth in 20:41. Brianna Reis cracked the top 20 for the Lady Wildcats, finishing 18th with a time of 22:19, picking up more than 90 seconds from their debut time. The rest of the team bettered their times, but faded behind Princeton. Olivia Baldwin (23:45) finished 32nd despite lopping 37 seconds off her time, while Ashton Fuelling’s improvement

of over three and one-half minutes (25;25) was only good for 42nd place. Rachel Cash (26:42) and Cally Schisler (26;59) were 4748, with Schisler taking nearly a minute off her time in the season opener. Northeast Dubois seemed to be riding a hot rod instead of running, as the Lady Jeeps sped away from everyone else to win the meet with 22 points, well ahead of runner-up Jasper (55). Castle (104) and Pike Central (120) were 3-4, while the Lady Vikings needed a stronger sixth runner to nip Boonville for fifth place, as each team scored 133 points. Princeton was seventh with 152 points. The county teams went their separate ways Saturday, with Mount Vernon traveling to Crawford County and North Posey heading to South Knox. Motz was third in the boys’ race with a time of 16:49, but the Vikings were 17th in the team standings with 390 points at South Knox. The girls came 12th with 304 points. The Wildcat boys won their season-opening dual meet with Princeton, which came before the girls had enough runners for a team. Renshaw’s thing was wining the boys’ race in 17:12, 13 seconds ahead of Dick (17:25), with D.A. Wilson (17:31) and Ritzert (17:49) finishing 3-4. Dane Wilson was competitive with two Princeton runners and came in fifth (17:59). Bryce Newman was seventh (18:15) and Knight also ran strong races, with Knight coming in ninth with a time of 19:00, something else that Searcy found to be positive. Fink was 12th with a time of 20:30, while Hoehn (21:02) came in 14th and Powell (22:15) 20th.

The girls’ race didn’t take place on a yellow brick road, but the finish seemed like something one would find on the way to Oz, as Mount Vernon took four of the top 10 spots, including a 2-3 finish. “I was very proud of the way the girls raced against the competition,” coach Jenny P1oetz said. “If they were close to a Princeton runner, they challenged them or even passed them, so I was really proud of them. It’s a good start.” Reis was second with a time of 23:54 and Baldwin followed her across the finish line in 24:22 for Mount Vernon’s second score. The other Mount Vernon runners, Schissler (27:45) and Fuelling (29:09), came in eighth and 10th, which Ploetz says puts her team in the mix, once they have enough for a score. Motz did his thing, while the North Posey girls had trouble in the season opener. Motz won the individual race in a boys’ meet which pared two schools without the five runners needed for a team km meet, while the visiting Central Lady Bears parlayed a 1-2-3 finish into a 19-37 dual meet victory. Quirk (22:29) was fourth overall, more than a minute behind Kenny Edmondson, the Central third-place finisher who came in three minutes behind the top two finishers. Ty Shemwell (22:37) was fifth and Will Heldt (26:13) seventh for the Vikings. In the girls’ meet, it was the three (Lady) Bears at the front of the pack as Central took four of the first five spots, led by Kelly Dorgan’s time of 22:55. Sierra Bobbitt (23:01) and Tori Flowers (24:34) were 3-4, coning in ahead of North Posey’s top runner, Goebel (24;45). LaMar was sixth with a time of 25:41, followed by Jessica Smith (25:48) in seventh place, Bender (27:46) in ninth place and Koester (30:46) in 11th.

Special Youth Deer Hunting Season - Sept. 25 and 26 Last year’s youth weekend harvest was 1,687, a record that, according to deer biologist Chad Stewart, probably coincided with increasing the age restriction from under 16 to under 18, which happened for the first time last year. Last year, 85 percent of the youth season harvest was female deer, with the remaining 15 percent being button bucks. The first youth season was 2006. These seasons have been exclusively for antlerless only until this coming season. Youth season typically accounts for about 1% of the season’s total harvest. More on the regulations: – Youth under age 18 on the date of hunt can participate. – Youth hunters can take either a buck or a doe; if a buck is taken, it is the only buck the youth hunter can take that year, except in an urban deer zone; a doe is in addition to all other antlerless deer that can be taken in the regular seasons. – Resident youth will need a hunting license (apprentice or regular), such as the resident youth comprehensive hunting & trapping license or a comprehensive lifetime hunting license. – Non-resident youth will need a non-resident youth deer hunting license—firearm, archery, muzzleloader, or bonus antlerless. – An adult that is at least 18 years of age must accompany the youth hunter during this special season, be licensed to hunt (unless hunting on his/her own farmland), stay in close proximity to the youth while in the field, and not possess a bow and arrow, crossbow, or firearm, and not accompany more than 2 youth at a time in the field. – Youth hunters must use legal equip-

Wildcats struggle as ‘mark up’ concept takes a vacation By Steve Joos This was not what Mount Vernon girls’ soccer coach Liz Castle had in mind as she was planning for this season. After the Lady Wildcats posted their best season ever as far as wins and losses were concerned, Castle broke this campaign down into three sections. An easy early portion of the schedule, more difficult in the middle and somewhere inbetween at the end. Things aren’t looking too good as far as the more difficult portion of the Lady Cats’ slate is concerned. Missy Brown scored two goals and Noicole Mercker had two assists Saturday as the visiting Heritage Hills Lady Patriots blanked Mount Vernon 3-0, handing the Lady Wildcats their fifth straight loss. Castle isn’t sure why her team is struggling and it’s frustrating for her since she felt that the Lady Cats had the potential to win as many as 14 games, but now sits at 5-6 on the season. The Lady Cats were competitive in the first half, but a handball in the box enabled Sophie Etienne to convert a penalty kick and give Heritage Hills a 1-0 lead. “We have run through so many things in practice,” Castle said. “Simple things, passing, shooting and trapping the ball in the air. We do them in practice, but when it comes to game time, we just can’t seem to do them.” The Lady Cats also had a number of chances to score

in the in the opening 40 minutes and Castle said that the team could have been up at the end of the game, but in the second half, Mount Vernon’s shots weren’t hitting the back of the net and their defenders weren’t marking up, which enabled Brown to take a pair of passes from Mercker and put them in the back of the net. “Both goals came because we refused to mark up,” Castle said. “If we don’t mark up, that’s who gets the ball, shoots and scores. We have to mark up and that means midfielders and backs as well. We had numerous opportunities to score, we had some easy shots, but we kept trying to make fancy shots which we just aren’t able to do.” The team came out fired up in the second half and had 12 shots on goal, most of them after the intermission. The team dominated the second half, but they still weren’t doing what they needed to do, Castle said. Mount Vernon wore down Heritage Hills after the intermission, but the Lady Patriots’ depth enabled them to avoid getting too tired. Brittany Chastain scored four goals and assisted on another Tuesday as Bosse rolled over the Lady Cats 6-1, at the EVSC fields. Trecia Hart added the other two Lady Bulldog goals, while Alexis Erwin had three assists. Katie Cox scored the lone Lady Wildcat goal off an assist from Samantha Alsop. The early losses, espe-

cially the ones to Jasper and Washington, may have affected the Lady Wildcats, who Castle said stepped on the field looking as if they expected to lose. Cox scored in the first five minutes to give the Lady Cats a 1-0 lead and then Mount Vernon once again had trouble scoring while forgetting to mark up a key player. In this case, it was

Chastain, who played travel team soccer for Castle and was left free to fire off four straight goals for the Lady Bulldogs. “The girls’ definition of marking up is not the same as what it means,” Castle said. “They think that if they’re five steps away they’re marking up and they’re not.” Most of Chastain’s goals came on chip shots that

bounced over the defense and came to her, Castle said. The Lady Bulldogs were only up 2-1 at halftime and then pulled away in the second half. The coach felt that the majority of her team did work hard against Heritage Hills, but weren’t able to do what was necessary to win. The Bosse loss weighed heavily one the team as they took an early lead, but couldn’t hold on.

Castle is also concerned since two of the losses in this recent skid were games in what she called “the up in the air” category. The Lady Cats will have plenty to work on between now and Thursday, when they face South Knox. Like marking up, maybe? The team participated in a community service project Saturday morning, hanging ribbons for the Komen Race for the Cure in Evansville.

The two-point conversion run by Ben Weber made the score Southridge 8 North Posey 0. “We had trouble tackling the Raider running backs during the whole game,” Coach Patrick Rose said. “That bad fumble snap just set the table

for their first TD,” he added. Both coaches praised the Viking spirit however, as the North Posey JV football team refused to give in to the Raiders. The quarter ended with the home-standing Raiders up 8 – 0. During the second quarter, both teams got on the board. The Raiders struck first when Mundy scored again on a 2-yard run over the middle with 4:54 left in the half. Two minutes later the Vikings stuck when Alec Werry connected with Jake Bender for a 23-yard TD pass. On the drive into Southridge territory, Werry threw to a variety of receivers.

I’m proud of her and glad that she gets to move on.” And he was happy to have coached her teammates. Bourne thought she was driving the ball well and putted well on the front side. The back side was a different story, especially with the

short game. “I was putting well and my driver was hitting pretty straight,” she said. All of the girls had same goals for this weekend at Eagle Valley. To have fun, try and play their best golf and see what happens from there, while hopefully earning a trip to the state meet. Bourne wanted to reach the low 80s or high 70s In the postseason, that’s all

which can be done.

Amy Steele dropped a stroke and finished with an 89 (45-44), while Kay Leigh Albright was even on both sides and came in with an 88 (44-44). “We just kept sliding by the hole,” Bell said. “Everytime I’d look up, all five of us, we’d have a nice little two or three-foot shot and we’d be making it a twoputter hole instead of a one putt hole.” The coach was pleased with the way his team played, however, adding that they played well on the front nine.

Wildcats makes quick work of Rappites in Posey battle By Steve Joos After five volleys during the first set of last week’s match at Mount Vernon, Kelsey Owen sent the ball into the Lady Wildcats’ zone, just past the reach of a tumbling Meagan Martin for a service point. That was the New Harmony volleyball team’s only score of the first two sets which didn’t come off a Mount Vernon service error. The Lady Cats teed off early on their county rivals, tearing through the first two games before holding off the Lady Rappites in the third set for a 25-7, 25-2, 25-13 victory. “The first two sets we played pretty well,” Mount Vernon coach Andi Allford said. “The third set was a little shaky, but overall we played pretty well.” The Lady Cats were just making good touches on all ends of the ball and that enabled them to reel off some long service streaks in the first two sets. Allford wasn’t happy with the five service errors the Lady Cats were called for in the first set, but everything else went well for Mont Vernon. Not that the first game was all that rough for the Lady Cats. After a New Harmony blocking error and a four-point string by Megan Montgomery ended, they had a 5-2 lead. Another New Harmony miscue gave the ball back to Mount Vernon, and Brittany Wallis. When Wallis’ serve was broken (after recording some of her team-high eight aces), it was 10-3. A six-point run while Martin was at the line opened a 19-4 lead. The second set was even more one-sided, as Wallis dished up 17 unanswered points to all but put that set away. Both New Harmony points scored when the Lady Rappites broke Mount Vernon’s serves. Mount Vernon seemed to lose focus in the third game and that enabled the Lady Rappites to hang around for a while, as they took advantage of a more aggressive attack and hit some shots into the deep corners that the Lady Wildcats were slow to pick up, Allford said. Even with those developments, the Lady Wildcats got another long run at the line, this time four point off Carynn Koch’s offerings, and never looked back, although the Lady Rappites got their licks in, with Morgan Matthews and Samantha Ricketts each serving aces. Koch and Jacey Ritzert finished the night with nine kills, while Martin turned in three digs and 25 assists. Livia Hopper stepped in the front with two blocks. Allford thought that winning their own invitational for the first time in 18 years may have bolstered the Lady Cats’ confidence heading into the match. Owen had four digs and two kills to lead the Lady Rappites, while Sara Smotherman registered nine assists. The Lady Wildcats also captured the reserve meet 25-13, 25-11. The Lady Cats came back Thursday and dispatched Princeton in as comparably easy fashion, rolling over the visiting Lady Tigers 25-5, 25-11, 25-10. The Lady Tigers hung around early in the third set, trailing 6-4 before losing the ball on a volley that Kristen Burell knocked out of bounds, giving the ball back to Mount Vernon and sending Koch to the service line. Koch served four points, a tip kill gave the ball to Mount Vernon and the Lady Cats put four more points on the board off Martin’s offerings. The Lady Cats went on to pull away from the Lady Tigers and clinch the contest. “They played pretty solid tonight,” Allford said. “We were just bundling errors early (in the third set). Just making mistakes and putting in places, so we weren’t picking it up like we should have.” The team stayed in control in each of the sets, Allford said, adding that the team made a few technical errors, but otherwise played a solid game. The Lady Cats have been playing well over the last few contests and have been making smarter decisions. Koch and Martin each registered four aces, while Koch turned in four blocks. Martin also had 36 assists, while she and Stemple each turned in six digs. Ritzert had 14 kills. The reserve match went to the Lady Wildcats 25-23, 25-21. The Lady Rappites have had a tough run recently, with one win among several losses. “It was our second win and it felt great,” coach Elizabeth Pruitt said. “The girls played awe-

some and I couldn’t be more proud.” Ricketts, Abbey Deckard and Brianna Suttles were each trying to learn new positions and each did their best to help the team out. The Lady Rappites won for the second time this season as they posted a three-set victory at Cannelton, winning 25-22, 25-18, 27-25. The reserves won their match 25-16, 25-18. Elizabeth Keller had eight aces and 10 digs as Vincennes Rivet toppled the visiting Lady Rappites 25-10, 25-11, 25-14. The loss to the Lady Cardinals was a hard one, Pruitt said, but it gave the Lady Rappites an idea of what they needed to work on. The Lady Patriot reserves took a 25-17, 25-16 decision in the preliminary. The Lady Rappites had a 7-1 lead in the second set, but couldn’t hold on, as they fell at Princeton 25-16, 25-20, 25-16. Dakota Morris had 14 kills and four blocks for the Lady Tigers, as did Jessica Gonzales. Sabrina Dycus served nine aces, while Molly Moore turned in four. Kayla McRoberts registered 21 assists, while Duncan had 10. Princeton took the reserve match 25-21, 25-20.

stole the undefeated season and the Pocket Athletic Conference title from the Vikings. With a bullseye on their back in every match they went into, the Vikings found that repeating a perfect season is challenging, difficult, and no longer possible. But before the 3-2 loss to the Rangers, the Vikings took another step toward the perfect season, defeating South Spencer (4-1), Tecumseh (5-0), and a team the will probably face should they make it to the Regional final, Vincennes Rivet. That score was 3-2. Depth proved to be the difference with the win over Rivet as the Vikings lost at No. 2 and No. 3 singles but managed to win at No. 1 singles with Nick Scheller. Ty Butler and Dylan Davenport lost for the first time this season at No. 1 doubles when they fell in three sets to South Spencer. The No. 2 doubles team of Eric Wargel and Brandon Spahn won all

three of their matches while Dylan Krohn and Alex Wade each finished 2-1. The team was to have competed in the Gibson Southern Invitational last Saturday but a rare rain in the area this summer canceled that tourney. The Vikings will carry an 13-1 record into action with week. While first-year head coach Charlie Grimes is optimistic about his team, he also knows they will have to be on top of their game the remainder of the season as on a given day, anything can happen. He also knows that the team cannot afford to allow the one loss to get them down. However, with the experience the two varsity newcomers have gained this season and the varsity experience the other five members of the team garnered in last year’s successful season, it would be hard to bet against the Vikings in the upcoming sectional.

Viking Football, from B1 “It was a well-played ballgame and was a little reminiscent of our 2005 state championship game,” Gengelbach said. “It was close until one big play kind of opened the floodgates.” The Vikings were able to run the ball with some success against Heritage Hills as Wes Harness finished with 75 yards in only 10 carries. Cameron Calvert got loose for 38 yards on 13 carries for the Vikings. Motz completed 8-of-18 passes for 86 total yards as Jared Reidford caught three for 49 yards and Neidig caught three for 28. Calvert caught a couple of passed for nine total yards. Jourdan Cox looked good on kick-off returns as he had three returns for a total of 52 yards while Harness has two for 23 and Cody Voelker had one for six yards. Defensively, senior Alex Maile had his best game of the year as he came up with 12 solo tackles and an assist and a sack. Almost all the Viking defense got in the books as Conner Cain and Neidig had five tackles apiece while Luke Morrow and Brandon Baumgart had four apiece. Calvert, Chris O’Risky and Baumgart each had three tackles while Alec Werry, Kurt Seibert, Derek Voegel, Alex Goebel, Harness, Cox, Tanner Hobgood, Anthony Webb, Orry Weiss, Austin Little, and Reidford were each credited with a tackle. Webb and O’Ricky were credited with three tackle assists while Harness, Cox, Seibert,and Baumgart were each credited with two. The Vikings will hit the road again this Friday night for a 7 p.m. contest at Forest Park where the undefeated (5-0) Rangers await. The Rangers, in only their third season playing varsity football, have been very impressive in their five wins. “They have some big strong kids and I knew when they added football as a sport that if they got behind them like they do in basketball, baseball, softball, and even tennis that it wouldn’t be long till they had a good, solid program,” Gengelbach said. “They have good size and good quickness and we will have to be ready with everything we have.”

By Haley Oeth It’s a new year for the Student Council of Mount Vernon High School. With a new President and new ideas, there are high hopes for a successful school year. “We have many things planned for this year, including fall and winter Homecoming, canned food drive, Almost Anything Goes, Teacher Appreciation Week, and attending state convention,” said Student Council President, John Bradford. The Student Council volunteers many hours of their time to help make the school the best it can be. This year, they have even decided to team up with the class officers. New ideas are being brainstormed at every meeting. “We are planning to have a canned food drive dance, after one of the home football games. You would be able to bring in canned foods to get a discounted ticket for the dance,” states Bradford.

Advanced Biology 3 offers unique opportunities for students By Kaci Turner For 12 years, Mount Vernon Senior High School biology students have been scrubbing in to open heart surgeries and participating in autopsies. They are participants in a unique program offered at the high school known as Advanced Biology 3 that allows students to travel to local medical facilities to learn about the daily activities of medical professionals and get hands-on experience on what to expect in the medical field. “I liked going to the Coroner’s Office [Vanderburgh County Coroner’s Office],” said Senior, Matthew Kuhlenschmidt. “We messed around with a lot of defected body parts. They were nasty, but cool.” Few realize how rare and special this program really is.

“This is the only program like this in Southern Indiana,” said teacher, Bernie Riedford. “Years ago, we started going down to the Coroner’s Office for field trips. While we were there, a Signature School student came in doing an internship. I asked Dennis Bicknell [Vanderburgh County Coroner 12 years ago] what we would have to do to send Mount Vernon kids down there, and he said all we had to do was ask. So, we did.” Many of the current students are not the first in their family to go through the program. “My brother, Tom Kuhlenschmidt, was the first student to go through the program,” said Kuhlenschmidt. Matthew Kuhlenschmidt is the son of anesthesiologist, Dr. Kuhlenschmidt, who has been essential in keeping the program running.

“Castle students had a program like this where they went to St. Mary’s,” said Riedford. “They shut them down due to the Swine Flu. Deaconess sent us an email telling us not to send our kids down anymore. I called [Dr. Kuhlenschmidt] and he talked to Linda White [CEO of Deaconess Hospital]. All of our kids got H1N1 and Flu vaccines and we got to keep on going down there.” Mount Vernon students are getting the chance to see many things at the numerous different facilities they visit. The Advanced Biology 3 program is helpful to students planning on going into the medical field see if it is truly what they want to do. “It’s a really great program and I’m so happy that I’ve got to be involved with it,” said Senior Chelsea Huber. “It’s definitely been worthwhile.”

To become a member of the council, students are required to attend six consecu-

CHRIS DIAZ tive meetings and 75% of all meetings in a semester. Some students decide to get even more involved by attending the state convention. “State is a two day convention where all high school Student Councils are invited to attend. There are many workshops you can go to during the event, and several keynote speakers to listen to,” said Bradford. “It helps to improve our leadership skills.” Student Council encourag-

es everyone to try and attend state, although it is not mandatory. This year, it will be held at Garrett High School, in Garrett, Indiana, on November 13th & 14th. If you like to be involved and have a say in your school then Student Council is the place for you. “It’s good to be involved in extracurricular activities, especially when you can help your community and school,” said second year Student Council attendee, Maggie Maier. Homecoming is one of the biggest projects done by the Student Council. The Council chooses the theme, and then plans for the dance and decorations. “Homecoming this year is Friday, September 24th against Boonville. It will be here before we know it, so we are already planning out events for the evening. This year’s theme will be Rock n’ Roll,” states Bradford. The Student Council meets every Wednesday at 7:20 with Advisors Darla Edwards, and Brenda Canada.

Around Kunstfest 2010

Thanks to the Baiers, it works for all of us... The United Way Mount Vernon attorneys Don and Elizabeth Baier often take the spotlight for Posey County United Way. Elizabeth became Executive Director of the organization in 1982, and Don has worked alongside her in every United Way campaign since then. Yet, their community outreach extends far beyond United Way. Elizabeth is a former member of the Mount Vernon Optimist Club. She remains active as a member of the board for the Volunteer Lawyer program. In addition, she works with the Mount Vernon Business and Professional Women’s Club and was named their Woman of the Year in 1985. She is treasurer of the Posey County Historical Society. Elizabeth served on the board for the Mount Vernon 175th Birthday Committee, a committee Don served as well. ”We really enjoyed it,” Elizabeth comments. “We were involved in a year-long schedule of events, including a giant birthday party for the city, all funds raised helped to renovate Sherburne Park at the riverfront and we worked with an absolutely wonderful group of people.” Don says he was “very proud” of being a member of the Vietnam Moving Wall Committee also. He is a U.S. Army veteran, serving from 1972-1975 in West Germany. Many readers will also remember his judicial service from 1985 to 2002 as Posey County Superior Court Judge. Don continues as a member of

the Posey County Historical Society board. Together, the Baiers take care of landscaping two areas on the St. Matthew Catholic Church campus, where they are both parishioners. They keep up the area in front of the Child Care Ministry building (formerly the Shrode building) on Walnut Street as well as the small area behind the old rectory on Mulberry Street. When they can find time, the Baiers like to garden, travel, read and watch or attend baseball games. Don is a lifelong Cleveland Indians fan while Elizabeth was raised to be a Chicago Cubs fan. “If the Cleveland Indians and the Chicago Cubs were in the World Series together,” Elizabeth says, “we don’t know what we would do, except we don’t think that is ever going to happen.” When the Indians and the Cubs aren’t

involved, the couple roots together for the St. Louis Cardinals. Both transplants to Mount Vernon, Don and Elizabeth met on their first day at Indiana University’s Bloomington Law School. The two married right after law school in 1979, and immediately following in June moved to Mount Vernon, where Don’s parents had come from Ohio in 1963 when Babcock & Wilcox opened a site here. In August 1979, the Baiers opened their law practice. The couple feels privileged to volunteer. “I get pleasure from helping others and don’t worry about my own problems so much,” Don says. Elizabeth adds, “I like the feeling of knowing that something that I did made a difference.” The Baiers have made all the difference in the quality of life for many Posey Countians.
