Army veteran J.P. Menese makes a rubbing of a name on theVietnam Veterans Memorial Wall Saturday, June 1, in Washington, D.C. Behind him is wife, Anne, a Vevay High School graduate, who was married to Georgia native Steve Lassiter when he was killed during the Vietnam War. They were part of a group of Southeastern Indiana veterans who took a bus trip to Washington, D.C., Friday, May 31, through, Sunday, June 2.
Southeastern Indiana veterans lay a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknowns at Arlington Cemetery.
Veterans Steve Thompson, Moores Hill, and June Whitney, Hidden Valley Lake, take a moment to talk during the Washington, D.C. trip.
Most of us were shocked at how quickly Alice decided to leave our park and go to live in Oregon, so she would be near her daughters. She lived here over twenty-five years. Most of that time she was our unofficial mayor. She knew everything that was going on. One reason was that Doris she would not hesitate to questions, often perButt ask sonal ones. Some folks thought she was nosey. I will agree she was but for a good reason. It was Alice’s way of knowing who needed help. She loved the park and all the residents in it. Before she had to care for her ailing husband, she took care of anyone and anything she saw that needed help. For instance, she gave financial assistance, took food to the sick and even paid for doctor’s appointments of any resident who couldn’t afford it. When someone’s mobile needed pressure washing she paid for it. She cleaned yards too. She would tackle anything to keep our park in order After her husband passed away her health problems, heart and diabetes, slowed her down. This spring she let both get ahead of her and it almost cost her life. Then she decided she would move to Oregon and she did it with her usual positive attitude. After her time in the hospital, she went to rehab to build up her strength for the air plane flight. (She was my kind roommate in rehab the last two weeks of my stay there when my knee was replaced.) Alice did not come back to her mobile. While she was in rehab, shall I say her strong willed daughters, came in from Oregon and California and took over. They sorted through what would be taken to Oregon. They put her mobile up for sale and had a yard sale. Alice had little say, but she never complained and kept a positive attitude about the change. We all miss her, but were pleased when she wrote that she is very happy living in the senior apartments in Oregon and that she has made friends there. That really was no surprise. She was good to be around. No matter what the subject she could put a positive spin on it. Now there is another story. The second part involves what was left behind, fourteen albums of pictures of Alice’s daily life. It made us sad to see them and to hesitantly place them in the garbage. I thought of the stacks of albums I once had tucked away in my bedroom closet and how I wondered what was going to happen to them when Ray and I are gone. I want you to know that will no longer be a concern. That won’t happen with my pictures. Three summers ago I scanned 2,993 pictures into my computer. Those stacks of albums

Johnson grant/award winner
Roy Johnson, Agricultural Science Instructor at East Central High School, is the 2013 Educator Grant/Award winner of the newlycreated Dearborn County Retired Teachers Foundation, Inc. An instructor of Agricultural Science at East Central High School, Johnson has already helped his students construct raised garden beds made of 2” x 10” non-pressure treated pine lumber. Summer crops have been planted and will be harvested when school resumes in August. Future plans will
include FFA students in the maintaining of the garden plots. Speaking to the retired teachers at the Dearborn County Retired Teachers Association get-together in June, Johnson spoke of the need to teach students and their families where and how they get the food which they so often take for granted. He commented that it only takes a small plot of land to reap very big rewards in terms of taste and nutrition. The project is exciting for Johnson as it gets students outside. Some of his students

have never really done any type of physical labor. He said, “We live in a nation where a majority of the citizenry no longer knows how to feed itself. Students will be learning to grow their own food. This is a concept that has been lost in our nation of mass-produced ‘non-local’ food. Over 90 percent of the food consumed in Indiana is imported from other states.” The project does not stop here. In addition to building the garden beds and planting the crops, other students will be involved in his
landscape design classes. Culinary Arts students of fellow teacher Brenda Osman will be utilizing the food produced in their cooking classes. A native from Dearborn County, Johnson graduated from East Central High School where he is now employed. He has a passion for the work that he does with his students. This is the type of quality education which the Dearborn County Foundation seeks to recognize with its awarding of its annual Grant/Award.

Remember safety tips when visiting county fairs The Indiana Department of Homeland Security (IDHS), Indiana State Board of Animal Health (BOAH) and Indiana State Police (ISP) remind all Hoosiers to remember basic safety tips to ensure that everyone enjoys their time at the county fair and other local festivals and carnivals that are part of Indiana’s summertime tradition. General Safety Tips ■■Pay attention to weather forecasts and prepare appropriately. ■■Be aware of your surroundings and know where you will go if you need to seek shelter from an unexpected thunderstorm. ■■Be sure to use sunscreen and sunglasses to protect yourself from harmful UV rays. Remember, even on overcast days UV rays are still powerful enough to burn skin so use sunscreen. ■■On hot days, make sure you drink plenty of water to stay hydrated. ■■Wear closed toe shoes like tennis shoes, not flip-flops or sandals, to protect your feet. ■■Remember “If you see something, say something.” If you see people or activities that seem suspicious, report your observations to the Indiana Intelligence Fusion Center at 877-226-1026. If you believe danger is imminent, contact local security or call 911. Safety tips for kids and caregivers ■■Teach kids to stay calm and stay put if they become separated from parents or other caregivers. Knowing what to do in this scary situation will help prevent a lost child from panicking, and help safety officials locate them faster. ■■Keep a watchful eye on children. It’s easy for children and caregivers to become separated in large crowds. ■■ Have an established family meeting location where you will reconnect if separated. ■■Check with county fair organizers and ask for ‘missing parent’ contact tags your children can wear with your name and cell phone number in case your child becomes separated. ■■If you do become separated from your child, notify local
security immediately. Animal Safety Tips ■■Wash your hands or use hand sanitizer after touching animals, and don’t consume any food inside of the barns. ■■Watch out for animal feces on barn floors and aisle ways when walking or using strollers. ■■Animals at the fair are in a noisy, crowded and unfamiliar environment, and may easily become dangerous if they are spooked or scared. ■■Avoid running, yelling, talking loudly or making loud noises while in the animal barns. ■■Never attempt to pet any animal at the fair without receiving explicit permission from the animal’s owner. Fire Safety Tips ■■Make sure all fires are extinguished and dispose of cigarettes properly. ■■Ensure all wires being used for fair exhibits are away from flammable materials such as cloth or hay. ■■If parking on grass lots while attending the fair, avoid parking on tall dry grass. Park on mowed grass whenever possible. ■■Use caution refilling generators. Exhaust can be very hot. Make sure the exhaust vent is pointing up in the air and not down at the ground, where it could catch dry grass or other flammables on fire. Amusement Ride Safety Tips ■■Don’t board a ride if you see broken parts, signs of improper maintenance, or an inattentive operator. Report your observations to the ride operator or call IDHS amusement ride hotline at 1-888-203-5020. ■■Every ride should have a prominently displayed, current permit issued by IDHS. If the ride has no such permit, call the amusement ride hotline at 1-888-203-5020. ■■Read all posted rules and listen to instructions given by ride operators. ■■Watch the ride with your child before boarding. Point out the operator and the entrance and exit locations prior to riding. Make sure they understand the instructions and warnings fully. ■■Obey minimum height, age, and weight restrictions.

Never sneak children onto rides if they are too small or too young. A smaller/younger child may not be physically or developmentally able to stay safely seated. ■■If you can’t count on your child to stay seated with hands and feet inside, don’t let them ride. ■■Keep all body parts (hands, arms, legs, long hair, etc.) inside the ride at all times. If you have long hair, keep it pulled up with a hat or hair tie. ■■Always use the safety equipment provided (seat belt, shoulder harness, lap bar, etc.). ■■Remain in the ride until it comes to a complete stop at the unloading point. If a ride stops temporarily due to mechanical failure or other reasons, stay seated and wait for an operator to give you further instructions.
■■Know your physical conditions and limitations. If you suspect that your health could be at risk for any reason, or that you could aggravate a pre-existing condition of any kind, do not ride. Additional ride safety tips are available at GetPrepared.in.gov. IDHS coordinates the certification of all emergency medical services personnel in Indiana, and oversees the regular inspection of emergency medical transports and the required medical equipment. The Indiana State Building Commissioner’s Office, charged with permitting and inspecting amusement rides in Indiana, is also a division of IDHS.

TRASH, From Page 1
were reduced to a handful of prized photos that were sent on to our daughter to put in my Mom’s cedar chest with other family pass downs. The photos were put in around 25 different files. For instance, I had one for myself with that first toddler photo until my graduation photo. I did the same for Ray. I took the photos of our life together and made quite a large one. Each of our children and grandchildren had one. There were those of the farmstead that began with a childhood time photo featuring a tomato patch where the plants are staked. I appreciated that because of one of my earliest farm memories is of Dad taking me to the market in Cincinnati where he sold the tomatoes. I put all the travel together. I had around 25 files of pictures. The next summer I made booklets from my files. I am most proud of the photo booklets I created for each of our children. One thing great about pictures filed on the computer you can make as many copies as you want, so single photos can go to different albums. I began with Ray and my grandparents and moved on with the last
pictures being of their graduation. With each photo I wrote what I remembered for each child. Since I am keeper of my parent’s photos I made booklets for my sister and her children. Since I had all my parent’s photos I put them together and wrote what I could remember for my sister and her children. I hope they appreciate my efforts heirlooms that might be of interest to them and wrote their story. I only directed three things. Our son, who has children, is to get Dad’s father’s pie safe. I was directed by Dad that it must be passed down. I noted our oldest daughter was to get Mom’s dresser and the youngest daughter was to get the blue glass basket that was my folk’s wedding gift and she was to get first choice from then on. I added all the geneology findings that came my way. Needless to say they were greatly appreciated. Since we have traveled in all fifty states, we had heaps of travel photos. I decided to choose the best and put in locations. For instance, I put them with stops like the Grand Canyon, Key West or the Badlands. Our pictures with their story have been passed on. No trash pile for them!
