Honor Roll is on Page 6The Nettle Creek Players will host a gala dinner and dance in support of its upcoming 2017 Summer Stock Theatre Season.

“Pearls & Lace” is this Friday, April 7th at The Hartley Hills Country Club. This event was originally set for March 11th but a forecast for heavy snow moved it to this week.

Tickets are $50 per person and can be purchased in person at local Hagerstown businesses Every Day Is Christmas, The Sidewalk Café and The Hagerstown Library as well as online at www.nettlecreekplayers.com. More information is available at 765-489-5632. by Joe KlemannNext time you are out and about the Nettle Creek area, take note on how long it takes before you see someone with some sort of clothing apparel that says “Tigers.” Ninety-seven

percent of the time it is purple, if you happen to be from out of town. Where does all this glo-rious advertising for the home team come from? Try that place at 98 West Main Street that is celebrating a seventh anniversa-ry this past week.

In 2007, Steve and Cin-dy Oler bought the two story brick building located at the corner of Main and Wash-ington streets in Hagerstown. “We had the opportunity to purchase the building but be-Giving Those Tigers Something to Wear!

fore we talked to the former building owner, Winnie Nirich, we talked to Bruce and Shirley Reuter, then the owners of The Logo Shoppe,” said Cindy. The Oler’s official start date as the owners was April Fool’s Day, 2010.

The Logo Shoppe offer a wide variety of screen printing, em-broidery, trophies and signs.

There are baby items, hats, scarfs, shorts . . . if it has Hag-erstown Tigers on it, they prob-ably have what you are looking for. And even though the Logo Shoppe employees may bleed purple, they do produce work for other schools in the area as well in addition to a lot of work for various businesses.

Of course, it takes a good staff to make a busi-ness like this work. “I’ve been with the Logo Shoppe since 2002 when Shirley and Bruce Reuter pur -chased it,” says Shellie Gray. “When Steve and Cindy pur -

chased it seven years ago, I have been the manager since then.” “Pearls & Lace” This Friday EveningThe Heart of Hagerstown Merchant and Business As-sociation will be meeting on-tion Monday, April 10th from 4:30 - 5:30 at Willie and Red's.

during last weeks sale.The Oafs are Coming, The Oafs are Coming!by Joe KlemannOver 40 visitors toured the Hagerstown Museum at once

last Saturday evening. They found all our displays very interesting but they zeroed in on one area. The antique en-gines on the second floor stage were surrounded. These were members of the Oil Field En-gine Society, otherwise known as "Oafs". Their website says it all about group of historical engine collectors if you like "BIG OLD GREASY RUSTY OIL FIELD ENGINES, you're in the right place.

While they were not permit-ted to disassemble the exhibits, they did take time to give them a close ex-amination and take lots of photos. The "Oafs" just finished their 2017 O.F.E.S.

Dinner Meeting at Willie and Red's and were ready to talk shop when they ar -rived in the museum. Myself and other Historic Hagerstown Board Member Joe Burns were on hand to answer any ques-tions but it only took a few minutes to re-alize they would be teaching us.

It was pretty cool to listen to these men with so passion about their hobby. But the best part was when member Kyle Blankenship from Brookville, Ohio came up to Joe and me to inform us there was a piece missing on our exhibit. We looked at each other and be-fore we could say anything, he said, "The drip oiler is miss-ing but I got one out in the truck I'll give you." True to his word, he returned with a model that perfectly fit and he didn't charge a dime.

There is a photo of the engine on the wall behind the exhibit that clearly shows the replace unit. We were very apprecia -tive of the gift but a bit embar -rassed we never noticed it. All you can say is there is there is a lot of historical knowledge upstairs in the museum we can easily overlook. Make plans to visit the Hagerstown Museum soon and become reacquainted with the Nettle Creek History.

Momma PicksHer PlaceThe Perry Township Board will hold its next monthly meeting on Thursday, April 13, at 7:00 PM in the Commu-nity Room of the Perry Town-ship fire house in Economy.

The Board meets on the sec-ond Thursday of each month at 7:00 PM except in July and August. Upcoming meetings include May 11, June 8, and

September 14.Momma and I were riding to town not long ago when she said something completely out of left field. If you

know my mother, you likely know that this isn't any-thing out of the ordinary. Her spontaneity keeps us on our toes, and laughs aplenty around Bowman Superior Genetics.

We were driving, listening to a cassette of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, when she dropped the bomb:

"I picked out my plot today.""I'm sorry?" I asked, turning down the radio, heart in my feet.

"My grave. Final resting place.""Mom, I thought you said your doctor appointment went really well last month? What do you need to tell me?" I asked, taking off my sunglass-es, throat so tight.

Momma smiled a bit, "It did go well, but I'm at that age that I need to think about these things. Also, I heard last week that lot prices are going up soon so I wanted the lower rate.""Alright, you know I hate

these discussions, but lay it on me," I replied with great hesitation.

Momma didn't hesitate at all.

"Well that place is filling up! I had to go to the far south end to even get a parking spot," she said, as though we were talking about Target rather than a cemetery. "But I found one. And when I sit up in my casket I will be able to look across the cemetery and see Daddy and Mom," she said with a gentle smile, her mind

drifting to a place other than Greens Fork, Indiana.

"Do you anticipate sitting up a lot in your casket?" I asked, half joking, half serious.

She ignored me. "They asked me if being next to a hydrant would bother me. I told them no, I've spent most of my adult life next to a hydrant watering cows and checking cows out in the pasture," Momma continued.

"Ahhh, good work Linda! A little piece of home for you!" I laughed.

"Besides," she continued, "I told them if they put me next to a hydrant you kids are more inclined to come water my flowers."

I responded to her quite suggestive comment, "Don't fool yourself; we're going for the silk option once they get marked down at K-Mart. You'll have tulips in August and greenery in March.""Yeah, you're probably right.

But then I got to thinking the hydrant wasn't such a good idea.""Why is that?""Well," she continued, "You know your brother. And the habit he's had since he was 7-years-old; he'll forget to shut it off and leave the water run-ning all night! Flood me right out of the hole."

How true that was. Linda had done her homework that afternoon at the cemetery.

"Ohhhh, good point. I hope you didn't pick the hydrant lo-cation?" I asked, impressed at Momma's odd assessment.

"Nope, moved west a bit.

Never did learn how to swim.""So.....is Dad close to you?"She turned onto to College Corner Rd. then turned and looked at me, rolling her eyes.

"Seriously? Did you buy a plot and not get two?!" I asked, my jaw almost to hit the console.

"Oh, stop. I bought him one.

We'll finally both get some rest without his snoring. No, seri-ously. I just need you kids to follow some instructions when that day comes," Momma said.

"Oh boy, let's hear 'em," I leaned my head back on the headrest. I knew this could be lengthy.

"Well, I need you to lay me on my right side before they close the top. And take off my shoes. And my jewelry. And make it tasteful. My jewelry, I mean."Don't worry Momma, you won't be going down in Mardi

Gras beads that day, I thought to myself.

"And, Jean, probably the biggest thing of all...."I shut my eyes. Here it goes....

"Just make sure I have on coral lipstick."In today's crazy world we can't accurately anticipate much. But on this Wednesday I lift a glass to predictable la-dies who are just head-strong

enough to know exactly what they want - in this life and next.

Additional Obituaries on Page 8 and 11Nettle Creek Gazette, Wednesday, April 5th, 2017 - 5A Note from Cindy“No puppy this summer”/A Puppy Tale

Let me explain. Our daughter Ali is getting married here on the farm in August. Although Stephen and I had both grieved when our dog Jack died in De-cember, I didn’t want to add raising a puppy to the “Let’s

Spruce Up the Farm” policy we’ve adopted. Puppies poop everywhere. They dig holes. They gnaw on plants. You find one chewed-up garden glove in the yard alongside a rodent skeleton, left as a present.

Awwww but puppies are adorable, right?

Yes, but puppies run off with keys and trip anyone trying to walk a straight line. Puppies find themselves in the swampy part of the pond, not knowing what a pond is and end up cov-ered in gunk and algae. Mud-dy, gunky puppies are always happy to see their people and jump up on clean jeans. Pup-

pies shred Styrofoam cups and granola bar packages found in trash cans in the barn. Puppies are a giant pain.

I said “There will be cute puppies next year.”I said “No puppy this sum-mer.”In my heart, I knew that all

Steve O had to do was to show me a picture of an Australian Blue Shepherd pup and I’d cave. I wasn’t nearly the tough sell I talked myself up to be.

In some reverse psychologi-cal twist, Stephen didn’t take a picture of the puppies the day he stopped at the farm where our Jack was bred. He just put a deposit down to hold the choice between two dogs, fig-

uring out that I’d give in and choose one.

He says now he knew which one I’d pick. He also says he never heard me say “next year.”The morning he introduced the idea of visiting this dog breeder, I told him that I knew what he was up to. He was “showing off for the people coming to the wedding, play-ing with an outrageously per -

sonable puppy would complete the ultimate Oler farm expe-rience of riding a combine, feeding the cows and finding kittens in the hay mow.”Pre-dog, I had considered a lot of potential names with no apparent front runner. When we saw this little guy, he wad-dled across the straw filled stall over the top of his litter mates. His expressive face seemed jolly, he was definitely the chubbiest and I knew that Frosty (as in the snowman) was going home to Economy.

On the way to our farm, we declared that this eight-week old ball of fur would stay in the dog kennel in the calf barn. While we were shaking out fresh straw, our little guy, wanting to check out his sur -roundings, nosed his way into Marvin the donkey’s lot. Mar -vin reared back, brayed and rolled that pup right under the fence like he was scoring the winning goal in a soccer match.

Frosty hightailed it into the nearest cattle lot which is knee deep in mud and stink. He curled up like a pill bug, stayed there and whimpered. We de-cided that he could sleep in an old lamb cage in the garage.

“He’s only eight-weeks old!”Frosty now spends his days in the dog kennel in the barn but his nights are spent on a plush upholstered cushion in-side his new crate in our heat-ed garage.

Puppies require time and training. If you make eye con-tact with Frosty when he’s in his comfy crate, then you need to take him out to pee. Today, he learned how to get in the truck, visiting the carwash and the Dairy. He silently rode in the back of the gator, out to

the pasture to check the cows and their calves. Most impor -tantly, he is learning that “no” means “no.”Right.oxo

Richmond arrived at Lloyd Michael field Wednesday for the Tiger Baseball season opener the purple clads had plenty of motivation. The Ti-gers had not defeated the Red

Devils since 1999 and the first Coaches Poll ranked Hager -stown as the 14th best team in 1A. The Tigers, who were a little insulted that the poll-sters did not rank them high-er, killed two birds with one stone. Trey Kelley and Drew Pyle combined on a two hitter, striking out 14, and the Tigers banged out 8 hits to cruise to a 5-0 season opening victory.

Austin Turner, who has com-mitted to play for IU-South Bend at the collegiate level, had both Richmond hits, but he was also thrown out at-tempting to steal second base twice during the game. Mason Hicks drove in three runs for the Tigers with 2 doubles and Trey Kelley also stroked two doubles.

The game started as a pitchers duel. Austin Turner reached on a two out first in-ning single before Trey Kelley recorded his second strike out of the inning to end the threat. The Tigers drew two walks to start the bottom of the first before Red Devil starter Phil-lip Hobbs settled down and retired the next three batters. Kelley struck out the first two batters he faced in the sec-ond before Darious Clemens

reached on an error. Kelley walked the next batter and then left both stranded with a strike out to end the inning. Cam Purtha delivered the first Tiger hit of the contest with a two out single in the bottom of the second but the next Tiger batter was thrown on a ground ball by the second baseman. Turner produced the second Red Devil hit of the game with a two out single in the top of the third but he was thrown out at second on a steal attempt.

The Red Devils brought in a new pitcher, Spencer Lahman, in the bottom of the third and the Tigers adjusted to his side-arm delivery quickly. He re-tired the lead off hitter but Kel-ley followed with a double to centerfield. Mason Hicks drew a walk and Drew Pyle ham-mered a 2 RBI double to right

center. Cody Wilson struck out, but the catcher dropped the ball and Wilson ran to first drawing a throw that allowed Pyle to steal third base. Trent Weiss hit a deep shot that fell just of the left field fence to plate Pyle and push the Ti-ger advantage to 3-0. Kelley continued to mow down the Devils, pushing his strike out

Tigers Defeat Red Devils 5-0total to 10, before giving way to Drew Pyle with two outs in the fifth inning. Pyle hit the first batter he faced and then promptly struck out the next to

end the inning.

The Tigers threatened in the bottom of the fifth. A two out infield single by Weiss loaded the bases but Josiah Sizemore came on in relief and ended the threat when he coaxed the batter into

hitting a rou-tine ground ball to the second baseman. Turner reached base for the third time to lead off the sixth inning with a walk. But, for the sec-ond time in the game, he was gunned down trying to steal second base.

The Tigers added two insur -ance runs in the bottom of the sixth. Owen Golliher reached on an error. Kelley followed with a ground rule double and Hicks smacked a two RBI double to bring them home. Pyle closed out the shutout with two more strikeouts and a ground out to end the game.

Richmond Head Coach Shawn Turner was compli -mentary to the Tigers. “The Hagerstown team obviously did a better job than we did” Turner said “They are a good team. Brad (Catey) and his guys did a good job of getting them ready. They threw two good pitchers at us. I know that they are excited. Apparently it the first time they have de-feated Richmond since 1999. I didn’t know that before the game, nor did I care. We will have to improve. It was obvi-

ous that this game meant more to Hagerstown than it did to us. It is only one game but this should motivate us” Tiger Head Coach Brad Cat-ey was pleased with the win “For us, playing Richmond ear -ly in the season is a test,” Catey explained. “It is an easy game

to get up for. When you play a quality program like Richmond the guys are always fired up and ready to play. As the game went on we got more confi-dence. Once we got that first

run we were able to build on it.

They say hitting is contagious and for a while there it was.”Trey Kelley picked up the victory and spoke for the team after the game. “We want-ed to start off with a win,” Kelley said, “and to do that against a team we not beat-en as a program for nearly 20 years should help give us momentum and confidence. Drew (Pyle) and I were able to throw strikes and that was

important.” The Tigers will host anoth-er team from Richmond, the Seton Catholic Cardinals, on April 4th.

complimentary . . . Tiger fans showed up in support of the home team. A sea of purple filled up one set of bleachers and most of the other. As the season progresses visitors may have to stand.

I have been to many sport-ing events but I heard an an-nouncement at this game that I have never heard before. Russell announced over the PA system that a set of false teeth had been turned in at the concession stand. It is great to have enthusiastic fans but don’t get so wrapped up in the game that you lose your teeth.

Way ToGo Kids!Mason Hicks drove in three runsTrey Kelley throwing strikes

i missed church today, but last week the sermon was about faithfulness. main-ly what i remember is that God is faithful. of course, this made me think of a song (although the hymn we sang "Great is Thy Faithfulness"

was awesome, too). one of the Christian groups i like to listen to has a song in which they sing that they can take God at His Word.

what about us? do we al-ways do what we said that we would? i don't know about you, but i sometimes fall short in this area.

i tried a couple of new rec-ipes. one i saw on facebook and the other one is from Guidepost magazine:

CHALLAH IN A BAG1 tbsp. yeast1 cup warm water3 tbsp. sugar 1/2 tbsp. salt1/3 cup canola oil3 cups all-purpose flour +

1/4 cup1 egg for basting (optional for vegan challah, substitute olive oil)Sesame seeds for topping

PREPARATION1. In a 1 gallon plastic zip-loc bag, add the yeast, water, sugar, salt, oil and 3 cups of flour.

2. Give the bag a little shake.

3. Place the bag in a bowl of warm water for 30 min.

4. Remove from bowl, shake, release air from bag, and place on the table for 1 hour. Flip bag every 20 min. The dough should be very wet. It will start to bubble and self-knead.

5. After the 1 hour, add 1/4 cup flour and give the bag an-other shake. This makes the dough not stick to the bag.

6. Leave the bag for 1 hour and 30 min. to rise. It should still be a wet dough. If it’s not rising, flip it over and knock it down. If the dough is wet, the recipe will turn out amazing.

7. Preheat oven to 300F/150C.8. On a well-floured sur -face, shape the dough.

9. Spray with cooking spray and sprinkle flax seeds, chia seed and oats on top. Leave to rise for 15 min. before it goes in the oven.

10. Bake on a non stick tray for 40 min.

erstown in 1969,” mentions Cindy. “Shellie (Sharp) was a dancer in my first recital and I’ve been blessed to teach all three of the Gray girls. She knows what she’s doing.”

Oler comments on two oth-er long time employees that keeps the shop humming. “Donna Monroe was with the shop when we purchased it in 2010. She’s so creative with her thread colors and her knowledge of the embroidery pro-cess. She has a keen eye for detail and enjoys her in-teraction with cus-tomers.”“Brenda Hood-

lebrink has been a quiet, steady pres-ence at the store on 98 West Main for years. Brenda and Shellie grew up together in Hagerstown and like a good friend, Miss Shellie has actively supported the Hoodlebrink family, from organizing a benefit supper to printing t-shirts. Check out the Super Ginger corner of one of the display windows.”

Over the years, the commu-nity has been appreciative of several distinctive window displays, especially the Breast Cancer Awareness blast of pink in October and the Frosty’s that appear in January. Then every-one is happy to see the snow-men go away when it’s time for spring and the multi-colored poms take center stage with

bunnies and eggs, signaling the end of winter.

“I always tell a new employ-ee it is fun to go out to the lit-tle league diamond on opening day to take a look at all the uni-forms we have done,” Gray says about the rewards of their hard work. “It is sort of an awestruck

moment to see them all on the field at one time and know we did those.”The store is gearing up for their busiest

season, which is spring. The Hagerstown Little League as well as and other schools they supply will be needing this seasons line ups. Their sec-ond busiest time of the year is when school starts back up in the fall. Thankfully, the store has the assistance of two other Giving Those Tigers Something to Wear!Continued From Page 1

The DNR Division of Fish & Wildlife re-minds Indiana anglers that last year’s fishing licenses are about to

expire and that they are encouraged to report their big catches this year.

Indiana fishing licenses are valid from April 1 through March 31 of the following year, so a 2017 license will be re-quired beginning this Saturday.

With a few exceptions, a val-id fishing license issued by the DNR is needed to fish in public lakes, streams, rivers or tribu-taries in Indiana or its boundary waters. Children younger than 18 and adults born be-fore April 1, 1943 are not required to have a license to fish.

An annual fish-ing license costs $17 for Indiana residents and $35 for non-residents Indiana residents who are at least 64 years old and born after March 31, 1943 are eligible to buy a Senior Annual ($3) or Senior Fish for Life ($17) license.

Licenses can be purchased online at INHuntFish.com, in person at more than 525 retail-ers statewide, or by calling the DNR Customer Service Center at (317) 232-4200 during normal business hours.

two photos of girls’ softball, had a re-cent chance to meet my old social stud-ies teacher from high school as well

as having a reunion of friends I have not seen in 35 years the prior week, I got to reminiscing about the "Good Old Days." That term takes on a variety of meanings for each generation. Most of us zero

in on a certain period of our youth because being young is almost always preferred over not being young. Whatever it is, we each have a different idea of what and where the

"days" were and what was so good about them.

But let's just side step any ar -guments right here and now . .

. the seventies were the good old days. The team names “Fonzettes” and the “76er’s of Hagerstown” easily label these photos as gems from the 1970’s . . . . ten years of feel-ing groovy and basing our oth-er feelings on what color our

mood ring was. A time when we thought the uniqueness of the AMC Pacer was the auto look of the future and giving a rock as a pet was considered a stylish gift at the time.

Fast food was Burger Chef, Coca-Cola came in thick glass bottles and we bought packag-es of baseball cards for only a dime with the bonus of bubble-

gum that was tough as a catch-er’s mitt. We put the player’s cards we didn't like between our bike spokes to make it sound like a motorcycle.

Our parents saved Green Stamps so we could one day talk them into trad-ing the booklets in for a pocket AM/FM transistor ra-

dio. Most televi -sion stations went off the air at 2:00 a.m. so they could reel up some more reruns of Gilligan's Island for the next

day. Most of us didn't have microwaves to heat our leftovers or win-dow air conditioners to make summer nights tolerable.

We drove monster muscle machines with engines the size of our living rooms until they

were downsized to hamster wheels in 1974 due to gas shortages. The only way to watch a video was television or the spooled up 35mm in health class teaching the proper way to brush up and down to avoid tooth decay. We believed we could order x-ray glasses from the back of a comic book for

75 cents and that bell bottom jeans would never fade away.

Our generation was forever altered by the sounds of Led Zeppelin, Rush and Deep Pur -ple while others enjoyed the smooth sounds of the Eagles, The Spirit of the Seventies Kansas, Journey and Lynyrd Skynyrd. Others became overwhelmed and possessed

by the beat of disco. I hope most of them recovered from this sickness.

K-Tell's "Disc-O-Selector" made it easy for teenagers to flip through their record col-lection while most of us just stored them in plastic milk crates (and still do). We feared

an attack from a 25-foot Great White Shark whenever we were in the vicinity of a body of water bigger than a soup bowl and the two words "Star Wars" began a trend where every boy and male adult’s Christmas list

included a Millennium Falcon.

Collecting beer cans seemed like a sound investment, everyone had the talent to be a rock star without any real musical talent, Prin-gles were the decade’s most

technological advancement and the Muppet Show was en-tertainment gold.

A mimeograph machine in school produced copies that had a strong smell and made us sick but a chalk eraser fight would take care of that aro-ma. Jiffy Pop was as much

fun to make as it was to eat and we all were told to Keep on Truckin' even if were too young to drive.

And that is why I feel the "Good Old Days" were the sev-enties. I bet there are a bunch of you happening people, in-cluding many of the girls in these photos, that would agree.

See ya on the flipside. Be cool and rock on.

Please email resumes to:humres@1polymersource.com (4/5)HOUSE FOR RENTHenry County is experienc-ing a late outbreak of seasonal flu with children and the el-

derly being the most adverse-ly affected, although all ages are getting the flu. With an estimated 6 percent of Hen-ry County residents with the flu, visitor restrictions began Wednesday, March 29 at Hen-ry Community Health’s Main Campus/Hospital.

At this time restrictions are only for those visitors under the age of 18. No person un-der 18 is to visit any inpatient within the hospital unless they are a parent visiting a sick child in the Women & Children’s Unit. Children who may need to come in with parents who are seeking help in the Emer -gency Department are allowed,

but will need to remain in the Emergency Department area.

Anyone with flu-like symp-toms or if you think you have been exposed to the flu, also are urged not to visit anyone in the hospital or extended care facilities.

Signage has been placed throughout the Hospital ad-vising visitors and staff. This message also may be seen throughout the Henry Com-munity Health system.

It is hoped by limiting visi-tors within the hospital to keep the spread of flu here low and not expose patient, staff and other visitors to the flu.

Infection Preventionist Te-resa Thacker, RN says, “As always in flu season be sure to use good respiratory eti -quette and cover your cough by coughing into your sleeve -

you know, like a vampire.

“You also need to be vigi-lant about good hand washing to cut down on the amount of bacteria that is left on surfac-es in our environment. Wash your hands often,” she added.

Protective masks and hand sanitizer stations are available throughout the Hospital for your convenience.

Thacker reminds everyone that people can shed the flu virus for several days before symptoms start and they are contagious even without fever for 7 days after the symptoms begin.

Influenza SymptomsThe CDC (Centers for Dis-ease Control and Prevention) says Influenza (also known as the flu) is a contagious respira-tory illness caused by flu virus-es. It can cause mild to severe illness, and at times can lead to death. The flu is different from a cold. The flu usually comes on suddenly. People who have the flu often feel some or all of these symptoms:

• Fever* or feeling feverish/chills•Cough •Sore throat•Runny or stuffy nose•Muscle or body aches

•Headaches•Fatigue (tiredness)•Some people may have vomiting and diarrhea, though this is more common in chil-dren than adults.

* It's important to note that not everyone with flu will have a fever. Flu ComplicationsMost people who get influ-enza will recover in several

days to less than two weeks, but some people will develop complications as a result of the flu. A wide range of complica -tions can be caused by influen-za virus infection of the upper respiratory tract (nasal passag-

es, throat) and lower respirato-ry tract (lungs). The CDC says, while anyone can get sick with flu and become severely ill, some people are more likely to experience severe flu illness. Young children, adults aged 65 years and older, pregnant women, and people with cer -tain chronic medical condi-

tions are among those groups of people who are at high risk of serious flu complications, possibly requiring hospitaliza -tion and sometimes resulting

in death. For example, people with chronic lung disease are at higher risk of developing severe pneumonia.

Sinus and ear infections are examples of moderate com-plications from flu, while pneumonia is a serious flu complication that can result from either influenza virus infection alone or from co-in-fection of flu virus and bac-teria. Other possible serious complications triggered by flu can include inflammation of the heart (myocarditis),

brain (encephalitis) or muscle (myositis, rhabdomyolysis) tissues, and multi-organ fail-ure (for example, respiratory and kidney failure). Flu virus infection of the respiratory tract can trigger an extreme inflammatory response in the body and can lead to sepsis, the body’s life-threatening re-

sponse to infection. Flu also can make chronic medical problems worse. For example, people with asthma may ex-perience asthma attacks while they have the flu, and people with chronic heart disease may experience a worsening of this condition triggered by flu.

frontier.comHow to Find Affordable High-Speed HomeInternetServices

Dear Savvy Senior,Do you know of any re-sources that can help me find affordable high-speed home Internet services? I’m retired

and live primarily on my So-cial Security and would like to find something cheaper than the $40 per month that I cur -rently pay.

Searching SeniorDear Searching,There are two great resources you can turn to, to help you locate low-cost or discounted Internet services, but’s what’s available to you will depend on where you live and/or your income level. Here’s where to begin.

Low-Cost InternetYour first step to locate cheap-er high-speed Internet is Ev-eryoneOn, a national nonprofit organization dedicated to mak-ing affordable Internet services available to all Americans.

Through partnerships with Internet providers like Com-cast, Cox, AT&T, T-Mobile, Mediacom and others, Every-oneOn can help you search for services in your area that provide high-speed (4G LTE) Internet at a very low cost. Most participating companies charge around $10 per month, with no contract and no equip-ment fee. However, for non-in-come qualifiers, there may be a one-time setup/equipment

fee of $62. Data plans will vary too.

To start your search, go to EveryoneOn.org and type in your ZIP code and click on the “Find Offers” button, or you can call 877-947-4321. You’ll then need to answer a few questions regarding you household financial situation so the Internet services you’re

eligible for can be located.

Some providers offer their services only to people with limited financial resources, however there are others that offer low-cost deals to ev-eryone regardless of income. What’s available to you will depend on where you live.

Also note that in addition to the low-cost Internet services, EveryoneOn also provides re-ferrals to affordable comput -ers and free computer classes. Most of the companies they work with offer refurbished tablets usually for under $100, and computers for under $160 that are available to everyone.

And, they provide referrals to free computer classes, which are typically offered in public libraries across the U.S.

Discounted InternetIf you don’t have any luck finding a low-cost service through EveryoneOn, and your income is low enough, another option is the Lifeline Assistance Program. This is a federal program that provides a $9.25 monthly subsidy to

help pay for broadband Inter -net service, or for a home or wireless phone. Only one ben-efit is available per household; either phone service (home or wireless) or Internet (home or mobile), but not both.

To qualify, you’ll need to show that your annual house-hold income is at or below 135 percent of the Federal Poverty Guidelines – which is $16,281

for one person, or $21,924 for two. Or, that you’re receiv -ing certain types of govern-ment benefits, such as Medic-aid, food stamps, SSI, public housing assistance, veterans pension or survivors pension benefit, or live on federally recognized Tribal lands.

To apply, you’ll need to con-tact an Internet provider in your area that participates in the Lifeline program and ask for an application form. To locate providers in your area, visit LifelineSupport.org or call 888-641-8722. Once the provider verifies your eligi -bility, they will begin service. (NOTE: The Internet compa-

nies that partner with Every-oneOn do not currently accept the lifeline subsidy.)Send your senior questions to:

Savvy Senior, P .O. Box 5443, Norman, OK 73070, or visit Sav-vySenior.org. Jim Miller is a con-tributor to the NBC Today show and author of “The Savvy Se-nior” book.

We had a good week here at the center. The nicer weather might have had something to do with it. Whatever the rea-son, I hope it continues. I keep inviting you senior citizens to join us here at the center. Most of those I talk to say, “I keep thinking I will do that.” I hope you will join us soon. Remember, call the day before you want to join us by 12:30 to order your meal. 489-5782.Leonard Bicknell, who de-

livers Meals on Wheels for us, showed up with a bruised face and black eye. I asked him if he got smart with Thelma but it seems he had a fall that did it. He keeps the center in fresh spring water. THANK YOU to Leonard and Thelma for all they do.

A Thank You also goes out to all the drivers. They volun-teer to do routes for the center. Without them, we couldn’t op-erate. A Thank You also goes out to all my other volunteers here at the center.

The Drug Pick-Up went well. The two officers were surprises that we had such a good turnout. There was one full barrel and half of a second to dispose of. We are planning an another pick-up this fall.

Caralou brought her famous rolls in for dinner Friday when she joined us. They were yum-my as usual. We had several extras on the table.

John H joined us for dinner one day this week and played pool with George. Hope he returns soon. We like to see new friendly faces here.

Come Check It Out!by Dan HarneyWhen I was in high school I could never understand why a prolific scorer or rebounder from a small school was usu-

ally overlooked when colleges handed out athletic scholar -ships. They would invariably sign the sixth or seventh man on the Muncie Central Bearcat or the Richmond Red Devil team instead.

I better understand it now.

Those kids practiced and played against better compe-tition night in, night out. They also had a mental edge. In the few times they played against county competition the thought that they might lose never crossed their mind. The other advantage they had was, for the most part, the county schools walked on the floor thinking the same thing. The 1965 Hag-erstown Tiger basketball team was a notable exception. The skill they possessed, combined with the mental toughness of that team, allowed them to de-feat the giant.

The rules have completely changed. Teams then were re-stricted as to when they could practice. Now sporting teams, in almost every sport, seem to play year round. There are AAU teams, travel teams and club teams that play January to December somewhere.

Now kids from small schools are frequently playing along side kids from big schools, both as teammates and adver -saries. When that happens con-fidence sours for small school kids. Suddenly, kids like Cole Bartlett realize that he can play at a high level. More impor -

tantly colleges like Missouri of the SEC realize it and pur -sue him. The same opportuni-ty arose for Nyla Rueter when she competed in summer AAU basketball competition for the Indiana Flight. Coaches did not heavily recruit her ini-tially because she played at a small school. Once they saw her compete against the “big girls” schools lined up to pur -sue her. St Bonaventure was first in line. Her success in the big time with an A-10 school speaks for itself.

There are many people who were opposed to classifying sports, but the irony is that classifying sports has opened the door more for small school kids than big school kids.

It is unlikely that Hager -stown could have compet -ed with 4A State Basketball Champion Ben Davis. But, they now have more expo-

sure and more opportunities to prove that they belong on the big stage than ever before.

There are few programs in the state, if any, that would turn down a chance to add Jalen Oliver to their roster. Most of our baseball roster could play for anybody. College recruit -ers came to Richmond look-ing for talent last year and the TCU Horned Frogs saw someone they liked in Des-mond Bane. He was playing at one of smallest schools in the state. They found him through AAU basketball. This week he helped cut down the nets in Madison Square Garden when the Frogs won the NIT.

When the Richmond Red Devil bus pulled in to Hag-erstown last Wednesday to tackle the Hagerstown Tigers in baseball there were some subtle changes from the past. To begin with Richmond has been unwilling to play here before. That has been true in other sports as well. They are also coming here this spring to play golf. Good Luck with

that. I guarantee you that there was not one player on the Red Devil bus, and prob-The Mystique is Gone ably no coach, who thought they would lose. That thought never crossed their mind, they don’t think that way.

The other side of that coin is that several Tigers have played travel baseball with, and against, several of the Red Devils. There was no doubt in

the Tiger dugout that they were going to win. The intimidation factor that the big school ath-letes once had is gone. The mystique is gone. It is now us against you and you better be really good if you think you are going to beat us. The Ti-gers prevailed 5-0. The Tigers that night were a better team.

People have always had their opinions, but now they have a vehicle for expressing them, oth-erwise known as social media. Loyal Richmond fans, who have a bit of a superiority complex to begin with, sounded off. “How could this ever happen” was my favorite post. I did not think the criticism of the coach was war -ranted. I happen to think that he is an excellent coach. His team won 23 games last season and they will win a lot of games this year. If these two teams were to meet again this year, and they may, I think it would be a good game. But the days are over when the game will be decided before it ever starts with an in-

timidation factor. Talk is cheap.

There are a lot of good players out there and they are not all playing for large enrollment schools. Bring you’re “A” game or lose. Perhaps bring you’re “A” and lose anyway.Kenton Alfred Anderson, 68, of Williamsburg, passed away on Friday, March 31 in the com-fort of a home filled with family.

GET YOUR 2017 MEMBERSHIP NOW: 765-489-4373WE ARE CURRENTLY ACCEPTING EASTER RESERVATIONS!by Dan HarneySt Leon - The Hagerstown Tiger JV baseball team went on a road trip Saturday to take

on large enrollment 4A East Central. East Central is in the rolling hills of east southern Indiana near Cincinnati. The Tiger JV roster is loaded with talent. Putting all those talent -

ed puzzle pieces together to prepare them for the next step is a challenge. The best way to find out how the players will perform is to throw them out there and see what happens. What happened was a double header sweep for the Tigers. They won the opener 5-1 and the second game by the score of 7-4. Puzzle Pieces GaloreThe Tigers toyed with the

Trojans using nine different pitchers in the two games. In 12 of the 14 innings played the Trojans failed to score. Grant Vinson, Derek Davis, Cody Swimm, Cade Johnson, Brady McMillan, Camden Rhoades, Mitch Morris, Silas Parsons

and Dalton Scott each saw mound duty.

There were several Tigers that produced base hits. Scott was the most productive with three. Jake Combs and Ryan Golliher returned after a year away from baseball and picked up where they left off. Combs had a key hit and Golliher, Swimm and Jaden Locke turned in outstand-ing defensive plays.

Each Served with Two SidesSeth Reynolds (SO/Eaton, Ohio) hit the NAIA outdoor track and field national meet "B" standard in the 110 meter hurdles to highlight the day for the Indiana University East track and field teams at the Hanover College Invitational on April 1.

Reynolds won the event in a school record time of 14.89 to become the first IU East athlete to achieve an outdoor national meet qualifying standard this season. All NAIA outdoor track and field programs can send a select number of "B" standard qualifiers to the NAIA Outdoor Track and Field National Championship scheduled for May 25-27 in Gulf Shores, Ala.

currently seeking nominations for its two prestigious awards, the Charles A. Rodefeld Award for Leadership in Philanthropy and the Community and the Ruth J. Wickemeyer Award for Community Service.

The Charles A. Rodefeld Award hon-ors a man who was not widely known as a philanthropist or worker for non-prof-it organizations. He was, instead, a per -son who moved quietly but steadily to help meet community needs.

The Rodefeld Award seeks to recognize Wayne County citizens and/or compa-nies who have been there when agencies or organizations most needed them, who served faithfully and well, though without fanfare, and who have provided leader -ship and significant financial support over the years. To qualify for the Charles A. Rodefeld Award, an individual, corpora-tion, or organization must have demonstrat-ed exceptional leadership and innovative commitment to addressing a community concern or a dedication to improving the effectiveness of an existing charitable in-stitution while maintaining an attitude of humility. Evidence of achievement must be demonstrated by gifts of volunteer leader -

ship and significant personal/corporate re-sources.

Named for the Foundation’s first Exec-utive Director, the Ruth J. Wickemeyer Award for Community Service recogniz-es paid or volunteer not-for-profit leaders who personify exceptional service to oth-ers in the name of community progress. Ruth is perhaps best remembered for maintaining the highest ethical standards and expressing true appreciation for even the smallest contributions.
