A work of art Get a sneak peek inside Beavercreek’s new Soin Medical Center, page 9A. By ASIA AIKINS Editor BEAVERCREEK — “We wanted it to be a healing environment,” said Kettering Health Network’s Director of Facilities, Jim Porter. “We wanted people to have a hotel-like experience instead of walking in and getting white coat syndrome.” The Indu and Raj Soin Medical Center is almost complete. Technology for surgeries, X-Rays, and emergency rooms has been installed. Nurses have begun training to become familiar with the new facility. But contractors are spending time finishing the minor details that make this hospital unique. “This is going to be a service-oriented hospital,” Porter said. “It’s a new concept.” A work of art, right down to the details, the Soin Medical Center reflects the concept behind renovations made to the Kettering Medical Center and Sycamore Medical Center. KHN worked with Jain Malkin, a San Diego based interior designer, to design the hospitals’ new look. Some of the unique features, like the bamboo garden, valet station and barbecue patio will be noticeable at the Soin. But features that may not be recognized, like the sound-absorbing ceiling tiles, pneumatic tube stations at every nurses’ station and flexible surgery rooms will make the biggest difference. The emergency department, lobby, and hallways are just some of the areas highlighting patient-first designs.

Each emergency room patient will be greeted immediately by an ER specialist at an open desk instead of greeted by the waiting room and closed doors. “Patients will walk into a person who will help them get to the next step,” Porter said. The lobby was designed in a “town-square” concept, allowing guests to see the hospital’s most-visited locations from the front doors. And patient room hallways are broken up by decorative in-set doors and curves instead of patients walking neverending white and stainless-steel hallways. Natural healing details can also be seen throughout the hospital with the use of natural materials, natural light, soft greens and local artwork. The most noticeable of the natural details is a waterfall that falls from the lobby’s second-floor to the basement cafeteria. Designers also incorporated KHN’s founding church, the Seventh Day Adventist, into the look of the hospital. A piece known as “The Creation Wall” was placed in the hall next to the information desk and the cafeteria is designed openly to reflect the importance of gathering. Through the services of Hok Architectural firm, Navigant consulting, Jain Malkin Interior Architecture, several local contractors, and generous donors like Mills-Morgan, and Indu and Raj Soin, this healing facility is set to open this month. The ribbon cutting ceremony will take place Feb. 17, and the emergency department will start accepting patients on Feb. 22.

Police looking for man caught on camera grabbing girl By ASIA AIKINS Weekly editor

BEAVERCREEK — Police are looking for a man who was caught on camera inappropriately grabbing a woman on Jan. 28 in the lower level of the Beech parking garage at The Greene. The incident was reported anonymously to The Greene security. “It looks like the man came up from behind, grabbed the woman and ran,” said

Captain Jeff Fiorita of the Beavercreek Police Department. “It doesn’t appear that they knew each other.” The Greene security contacted Beavercreek police on Thursday asking for help in identifying the man. Video footage from the incident was released to the police to aide in the efforts. The man will not be charged criminally unless the victim comes forward and presses charges, Fiorita said. “We just want to know who he is,” Fiorita

said. “This kind of thing hasn’t really happened here before. We want to make sure it doesn’t happen again.” The suspect is described as a Hispanic male in his twenties, of average size. He has a mustache and was wearing a black hoodie, jeans, and white tennis shoes at the time of the incident. He was captured on camera driving away in a white, older model, four-door Honda Civic. Anyone with information is asked to contact Beavercreek police.

By ASIA AIKINS Editor BEAVERCREEK — The Beavercreek Chamber of Commerce will host a candidate and issue forum for primary election candidates and issues on the March 6 ballot this Tuesday. According to Chamber president, Clete Buddelmeyer, this is the first time the Chamber has hosted an event like this. “The Beavercreek Women’s League normally do them (forums), but not for the primaries,” he said. “We thought it was important to also do a forum for the primaries this year.” Buddelmeyer said it is important for citizens to get to know the new faces in the new 10th Congressional District, Second District Court of Appeals, and 73rd State Representative district, and make informed decisions during the March 6 elections. “This is a non-partisan forum,” he said. “We just want to make sure our members are fully aware of the candidates and their positions.” The forum will have a business focus, directed at Chamber members, but is open to the public. The forum will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. Feb. 14 at Main Elementary School. All candidates running for 10th Congressional District, Second District Court of Appeals, State Representative for 73rd District, and both Greene County Commission seats have been invited to speak. Beavercreek City Schools and Beavercreek Township have also been invited to address their levy requests. So far, the following candidates have signed up to participate: Olivia Freeman, David Esrati, John Anderson, Linda Borgert, Jarrod Martin, Bill Conner, Tom Koogler, David Pendry, Joan Dautel, Bruce Hull, Marilyn Reid, David Pendry, Bob Glaser, Jeffrey Welbaum, and Darrell Heckman. Beavercreek City Schools Superintendent Nick Verhoff has also signed up to talk about Issue three. Doors open at 5 p.m. for networking. The forum will start at 6 p.m. Each candidate and issue representative will be given three minutes to address the audience. Audience members will be given the opportunity to submit question cards that will be addressed after all candidates have given their presentations. This is an opportunity for all members of our community to become more informed about the candidates and issues and is not an endorsement of any candidates or issues. “There’s so many good choices on the ballot this March,” Buddelmeyer said. “We just want citizens to make informed decisions.”

Graham is urging Greene County residents to err on the side of caution. According to Graham and Tomcisin, data such as user names and passwords used for applications on the website may have been compromised. “A lot of people use one password for multiple applications,” said Graham. “It may be in people’s best interest to change their passwords.” “We’re taking proactive steps to inform people that data may have been compromised,” added Tomcisin. The Greene County Sheriff ’s

Office was contacted shortly after the breach was discovered and an investigation is now underway. The Greene County Auditor’s Office also turned information over to the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Cyber Crime Division, which is tasked with the responsibility of investigating high-tech crimes. While speaking with this paper, Tomcisin stated that steps are being taken to guarantee the website’s security. “We did identify a vulnerability,” said Tomcisin. “We’re taking steps to mitigate that.”

By ASIA AIKINS Editor BEAVERCREEK — Communication was key at the Beavercreek City Council and Board of Education joint session held on Monday. The two-in-one meeting was the first of its kind held in over a year. Board members offered input in council discussions, and council members participated in school board issues. The night began with representatives from the Beavercreek Stars basketball club sharing a big land purchase with council members. The purchase will allow the club to build a new gym across from the police station just off of Dayton-Xenia Road. The building will include four courts, rivaling tournament sites in the region and bringing tourism Beavercreek’s downtown area. Beavercreek’s planning and zoning department also presented ideas to improve the downtown area during the meeting. An unfinished packet was presented to both board and council members showing the goals for the Dayton-Xenia Road corridor improvement project. Members from both group weighed in to show support for the project. “I hope this project will give our downtown a little

People make the Creek BEAVERCREEK — All five elementary buildings are beginning walk throughs with their staff. Parkwood teachers have been leaving their classrooms and visiting three other classrooms with an administrator. The purpose of these walk throughs are to promote collegiality and observe fellow teachers practices and discuss how teachers can take some of the things they see back to their classrooms. Walk throughs help continue to develop professional learning communities at Parkwood. The teachers were excited to see students in a variety of settings and learn from their coworkers. Reading teachers were amazed by how much they could learn about classroom management from the Phys. Ed. teacher and 4th grade teachers even got great ideas from 1st grade teachers. Parkwood is eager to continue to develop a shared vision and work and learn colRecently, Beavercreek High School lost one of its students, Alexis Smith, in a tragic car accident.

They work with students after school, offering things like scooter hockey or Webmasters, and do other things for the community. Every teacher is on committees, many attend Food4Funds, science fairs, art shows, Muse, plays, musicals, business partnership meetings, PTO meetings, PTO events, CBS meetings and volunteer in other ways. They attend a myriad of meetings, trainings, and parent visits, many of which take place after work hours. It is normal to find a few teachers working late in the evening or on the weekend, although none of this generates extra income. They do it because it is good for kids. It is difficult to isolate one teacher to highlight when they are all exceptional. I want to point out the dedication they give to our students. They want the students to do their best and do all they can to allow that to happen.

COMMENTARY By Nick Verhoff

Support for Martin, District 73 Editor: I am writing this letter to support Jarrod Martin for State Representative of the recently formed 73rd District. I sincerely believe Martin is the best candidate for the seat, and yes, I have met the other candidates. Now, I am pleased to say Martin’s contenders seem to possess many fine assets to recommend them, nevertheless the candidates do not quite measure up to Martin’s work ethic and leadership abilities. Facts: Jarrod Martin holds a bachelor’s degree and a master’s degree in Business Administration. He is a small business owner and he has sponsored, co-sponsored, and voted for legislation to promote small businesses and help Ohio’s economy. He is a life-long resident of Greene County having been born in Xenia and raised in Beavercreek. Currently, he lives in Beavercreek with his wife and three young children, and the family attends Saint Luke Church. He has always voted

Vote for student breast cancer awareness videos DAYTON — Now is the time to vote for this year’s best Breast Cancer Awareness Video. The Fourth Annual Student Breast Cancer Video Contest, sponsored by the Breast Cancer Foundation and the Breast Cancer Task Force of the Greater Miami Valley, is in full swing and now is the time for the public to chime in on which video they prefer. This year, students from 10 local high schools – Alter, Beavercreek, Bellbrook, Centerville, Dixie, Miamisburg, Oakwood, Springboro, Stebbins and Stiver’s School for the Arts – created and entered 53 different videos for the competition. Each of these videos focused on the importance of breast cancer awareness, the risk factors associated with breast cancer and the importance in early detection. To cast your vote, visit and follow their link to all the videos on YouTube. Voting goes on through February 15. A Red Carpet Awards Ceremony at Rave Cinema in The Greene will be held 4 p.m. Sunday, March 4. More than $10,000 in scholarships and prizes will be given to winners. WDTN-2 News Sunrise Program Anchor Dan Edwards will emcee the event along with Kim Faris from 94.5 LITE FM. This awards ceremony is open to the public. For more information about the contest or awards ceremony, visit or contact Leigh Ann Fulford, chair of the Student Breast Cancer Video Contest, at 937-294-3816.

more identity,” said Rob Dotson, vice-president of the Board of Education. During the school levy strategy update, presented by Superintendent Nick Verhoff, council members shared concerns that had been voiced to them by the public. One of the big issues was more busing changes if the March 6 levy is passed. “Busing will be restored by the beginning of the 2012 school year,” Verhoff assured council members. “We’re trying to do it sooner, but we can’t promise anything yet.” Because former Beavercreek bus drivers took jobs in other districts, new drivers would have to be hired and trained before busing is fully restored to the high school and middle schools. The new hiring process could take four to six weeks, Verhoff said. School board member Kim Grant urged council members to attend the Community Conversations each week to show support for the schools and show the public that City Council and the BOE are working together. During a closing round table discussion, members of both groups urged that the BOE and City Council communicate more, especially during election times.

Republican. Now that John Langenderfer has dropped out of the primary race that leaves Jarrod Martin as the only candidate that has never been divorced. He believes in the sanctity of marriage, the family unit, and he is pro-life. In Columbus, he voted for the heartbeat bill. He is a strong supporter of the Second Amendment and he is a lifetime member of the National Rifle Association. He is a recipient of the “Watchdog of the Treasury” award and he worked to pass a state budget that closed an $8 billion deficit. In the current 129th general assembly he has written two bills that have become law in Ohio.

Schmitt holds the two new screech owls that will be housed in the aviary at the Narrows Reserve and Nature Center. The birds, which are injured and cannot be released into the wild, will be used in nature programming. Submitted photo.

Parks welcomes new residents XENIA — Injured and unable to live on their own in the wild, two screech owls are the newest arrivals to Greene County Parks & Trails and reside in the aviary at the Narrows Reserve Nature Center. The park agency obtained the two owls from a wildlife rehabilitation center in northern Ohio and both will be used in the naturalist education program through visits to local schools or in programming held at the Narrows Reserve. “We’ll use the owls to educate residents of all ages about native wildlife,” said Greene County Parks & Trails staff naturalist Ashlee Schmitt. “When you see something up close and it’s a living, breathing animal,” Schmitt adds, “it’s a much more powerful than in a picture on or a video. We want residents to learn and to value our native wildlife.” One owl has an injured wing while the other has only one eye, she added. “These owls are wild animals and are not pets,” Schmitt said. “We have state and federal permits to house our birds of prey that cannot be released back into the wild.” The screech owls will join a turkey vulture and a red-trailed hawk in the aviary located at the Narrows Reserve Nature Center. The birds are available for viewing from dawn to dusk.

Sneak peek inside Soin Medical Center

Thursday, February 9, 2012 9A

A work of art... right down to the details Focused on the details Designers used natural materials and local artwork to create a natural feel throughout the hospital.

“We want this to be a healing environment,” said Jim Porter, director of facilities.

“Grandchildren bring a lot of joy to our lives. It is our responsibility to make this world a better place for them and future generations.” -Raj Soin

Founded by the Seventh-Day Adventists Church, each Kettering Health Network hospital holds a display called “The Creation Wall” showing the seven days of creation. The Raj Soin Medical Center stays true to the church roots considering its beliefs in every detail. The importance of family and gathering is shown in the cafeteria with an open floor plan and concrete mold of the Soin grandchildren’s hands.

A service-oriented hospital, the patient comes first at the Soin Medical Center. Patients are greeted upon entering the ER and use the latest technology during their stay. Nurse and staff training began recently in the emergency department to ensure that patients receive the attention they deserve from qualified personnel. Each patient room comes with a 42-inch flat screen television that can be used to rate pain levels, order meals, or surf the web. A “town-square” designed lobby allows patients to find different areas of the hospital easily. The use of natural materials and natural tones are used for patient and guest relaxation.

Carroll heats up in second half to overtake a tough Bellbrook team By WAYNE BAKER Sports Editor

RIVERSIDE â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Bellbrook and Carroll (18-1) beat up on each other for four intense quarters, but with a big second half surge the Lady Patriots managed to pull out a tough 51-41 victory. It was Senior Night, and Carroll High School decided to honor the seniors for both teams before the opening tipoff. Bellbrookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Kaitlin Gibson, Shelby Sigman, Elizabeth Dimbath and Leisha Crawford stepped up for a nice ovation. Carrollâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dorothy Stevens, Christine Kinstedt, Kelly Sheedy and Kelley Austria then received their applause. Once the pleasantries were over, a basketball battle ensued on the court. Head coach Rob Berry honored his Carroll seniors by allowing non-starting seniors to hit the floor first. Bellbrookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jason Tincher went with his normal rotation and they started out on fire, jumping out to an 18-8 lead at the end of the first quarter. Junior Erin Dorn and Crawford drained big three pointers and sophomore post, Chea Taylor was dominating defensively in the post for the Lady Eagles. Carroll was struggling in its halfcourt offense and firing airballs on wide open looks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was Senior Night and that can make it tough to get into a rhythm,â&#x20AC;? Berry said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tough when there are players on the court not used to starting, but you want to give them a chance.â&#x20AC;? But when you have Kelley Austria on your team, no lead can be considered safe, and last night, Bellbrookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. Bellbrook was shutout in the second quarter. Carroll ramped up the defensive pressure in the second quarter and started knocking down some long range shots. Sophomore Ashley DePoorter buried a three at the 4:30 mark to chop the Lady Eaglesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; lead to 18-16, then moment later

after a forced turnover, junior Lyndsey Blandford drilled a deep three from the corner and the Lady Patriots had erased Bellbrookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lead and took a 19-18 lead into halftime. An amazing feat, as they held Bellbrook scoreless in the second quarter. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We turned it around in that second quarter,â&#x20AC;? Berry said. The play was very physical in the second half and each teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s guards did a fine job of withstanding withering defensive pressure. Gabrielle Etter was brilliant with the basketball against Carrollâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pressure and Taylor kept crashing the offensive boards to pull Bellbrook close, 36-29 a the 4:47 point in the fourth quarter. Susan Wollenhaupt, Madison Schroeder and Ciara Poppa came through for Carroll late in the fourth offensively and defensively to help the home team ice the victory. Caroline Hypes nailed some big shots late to keep the Lady Eagles close and Crawford put in some tough buckets, but Carroll spread the floor with a four-corner offense to stall the visitorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rally. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a tough game, but we were able to have a big second half rally,â&#x20AC;? Berry said. Tincher was pleased with his teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s effort and felt they never quit in the game and will make a deep run in the tournament. Austria finished the game with 17 points followed by Poppa and Blanford, who finished with nine points each. Crawford netted 13 for Bellbrook, with Taylor adding nine, Dorn and Hypes six points apiece. Carroll is the No. 1 seed in the Xenia sectional for Division II and will open play Thursday, Feb 16 against Northeastern (117) at Xenia beginning at 7:30 p.m. Bellbrook, also in Division II, and a No. 2 seed in the Springboro sectional will open against Franklin (4-14) next Tuesday in Springboro beginning at 7:30 p.m.
