BETHEL — This is offseason for the Bethel-Tate High School Dance Team, but members outfitted themselves in Reds’ Tshirts without hesitation when they were offered the opportunity to march in the Opening Day parade. “They felt quite honored to be asked by the Community Savings Bank in Bethel to appear in the Cincinnati Reds’ Opening Day parade with them,” said Sharon Collins, who retired last year after teaching physical education and health at Ebon C. Hill Intermediate and William Bick Primary schools for 38 years. Collins, who lives in Anderson Township, continues to coach the dance team - members of which are in grades eight through 12 - as she did her entire teaching career. “The team generally does not travel but performs at our home

basketball and football games,” Collins said. “This was our offseason, but pulling together nine of our high school team with five of our junior guest performers (in grades four through seven) was not difficult when they heard the announcement of appearing in the Reds Opening Day parade. “We were thrilled for the first time to be in the parade and to have the opportunity to participate among the grandest baseball celebrations in the nation,” Collins said. When the dance team got its invitation to the March 31 Opening Day, Collins quickly choreographed a spirited pompomshaking dance to John Fogerty’s tribute to baseball song “Centerfield,” and the girls took it to the streets of Cincinnati. “The most thrilling moment of the parade for the girls was when they rounded the street to the front of Fountain Square where the masses of people

wearing their Reds attire cheered with such spirit and enthusiasm,” Collins said. “It was so exciting representing a small rural school, taking my girls downtown and being part of such a grand Cincinnati tradition. “Many of the girls had never been to Findlay Market, so I made part of the day a field trip and we stopped at the market so the girls had the opportunity to eat breakfast there before they took their spots in the parade,” Collins said. “The opportunity to support our Cincinnati Reds in the Opening Day parade is an event that the dance team will keep with them as one of their fondest memories of their highschool years.” Senior Anna Weigand, cocaptain of the dance team, agreed. "I had a wonderful time dancing in the parade,” Weigand said.

CLERMONT CO. — Clermont County commissioners gave the “no-kill” activist organization Clermont Pets Alive a contract last year to help the Clermont County Humane Society save dogs from the euthanasia list at its animal shelter. About six months later the contract isn’t necessary, according to Karen Turpin, president of the humane society’s board of directors. “We don’t need their assistance. We are finding ways to do it without them,” Turpin said. “When their contract comes up for renewal I don’t think we need it. We are handling things fine without them.” These comments came in response to Anita Barron, executive director of Clermont Pets Alive, who said humane society officials haven’t sent them many euthanasia lists recently. “All in all, it’s been working well. It’s been a bit of an issue that they are not giving us the euthanasia list,” Barron said. “Are they saving animals on their own? We won’t know that (because) we’re a month behind on the report. Until we see the report we aren’t going to point fingers and say they aren’t doing their jobs.” Turpin said ideally the humane society would never send Clermont Pets Alive a euthanasia list. “They are our last resort. So the animal shelter has been able to limit the need to call ...



(and) notify them for assistance because we’ve increased our partnerships with many additional rescues,” she said. “That does not mean we are putting anything down. That’s a bad assumption on their part.” Clermont County Administrator Stephen Rabolt said some of the “nuts and bolts” of the relationship between the two organizations need work. “There are still some issues — and we’re trying to make it flow right — but the reality is they have saved a lot of dogs,” Rabolt said. Clermont Pets Alive helps reduce over-crowding at the shelter, he said. Turpin, however, wasn’t convinced that warranted a contract. “They’ve saved 60 dogs in six months, however you want to look at that,” she said. “Is that helpful? Sure. Would they take (those animals) if they weren’t under contract? I can’t answer that. I would hope they would, but they don’t need a contract for that.” Want to know more about what is happening in Clermont County? Follow Keith BieryGolick on Twitter: @KBieryGolick

In 2012, 72 percent of the animals brought to the Clermont County Humane Society’s animal shelter were euthanized. Clermont County commissioners changed their contact with the humane society to force them to work with Clermont Pets Alive, a “no-kill” advocacy organization, to save dogs from the shelter’s euthanasia list.AMANDA DAVIDSON/STAFF

Dispute over covered bridge collapse By Keith BieryGolick

STONELICK TWP. — A difference in height between two trusses and a lack of bracing led to the collapse of the Stonelick covered bridge, according to an engineer. The 136-year-old bridge collapsed into Stonelick Creek in February while construction crews worked to fix it. The bridge was closed to traffic in May 2010 when a truck ignored its 3-ton limit and damaged the floor beams. The Clermont County Engineer’s Office requested John Smolen, principal engineer at Smolen Engineering, to assess the collapse. There was no “lateral diagonal bracing ... at the

time of the collapse,” Smolen said in a March letter to the county engineer, obtained by The Community Press. There also was a difference in elevation between the two trusses that “caused the structure to lean toward the upstream side,” he said. “This, coupled with the lack of lateral diagonal bracing, lead (sic) directly to the collapse of the bridge in the upstream direction,” Smolen‘s letter said. Tracy Ferguson, a corporate officer with Columbus-based Righter Co., which has the contract for the project, did not agree. “We do not believe it was elevation or anything” about internal bracing that caused the collapse, Ferguson said. “Basically all I can say is we don’t know the cause and we’re really working on figuring out what it is.” The difference in elevation between the trusses was 1 inch and not large enough to cause the collapse, Ferguson said. Federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration records show Righter Co. work

sites have been inspected four times since 2004 and no violations were reported. “This has never happened before so everybody is really taking their time trying to figure this out,” Ferguson said. Clermont County Engineer Pat Manger didn’t blame the construction company for the collapse and said no legal action is planned. The bridge is one of about 140 covered bridges

This tough winter hasn’t delayed Batavia’s Main Street revitalization, but the heavy spring rains highlighted a major issue with part of the project. “The planters are not working right,” Village Administrator Dennis Nichols told council at the April 7 meeting. “We have 53 total and at least seven have failed. We believe the soil composition in ours is flawed. Several are simply retaining water and some are not draining at all.”

left in Ohio and the only one in Clermont County. Manger said it will still re-open this year and the collapse was “somewhat of a blessing.” “We didn’t like that this happened, but the end result is we found some internal rot and ... damage to some wood members that we probably wouldn’t have found otherwise,” he

said. Existing rot on some of the wood “had nothing to do with the collapse,” Manger said. “We’ll probably have a better product now than had this not happened.” The project was originally estimated to cost $850,000. The county received a $360,000 grant from the National Histor-

ic Covered Bridge Preservation Program, which required a $90,000 local match of taxpayers’ money.

Batavia discovers drainage issue with Main Street project

Take Your First Career Step Here - Become a Dental Assistant!


The Stonelick covered bridge collapsed in February. A lack of internal bracing on the bridge and difference in elevation between two trusses led directly to the collapse, according to an engineer. But the construction company working on the project doesn’t agree.PROVIDED

Each planter is a drainage basin with street trees and other plants set in the sidewalks along Main Street. Nichols said they excavated one of the planter boxes and found the soil was dry with a clay layer underneath, which “seals it just like a pond.” If the soil was incorrectly mixed, Nichols said he’s worried some of the drainage basins working well have too much sand and the plants won’t be able to grow. Councilwoman Elizabeth Mason asked if they’re going to take soil samples of each planter, and Nichols said they’ll take a representative sample of all 53 in the project. “This is our highest concern right now, and I don’t expect it to cost the village,” he said. Nichols added residents and business owners will start to see more visible changes in early May. The $5.1 million project, expected to be complete in June, includes major makeover for Main Street, from Fifth Street to the bridge, and revamping parts of Fourth and Second streets. On Main Street, the roadway will be reduced from four travel lanes to two travel lanes with a center turn lane dotted with landscaped islands. Parking will remain on both sides of the street, and there will be more streetlights along the stretch. This project widens the sidewalks along Main Street and adds street trees. Also, the utility lines will be either buried or pulled back, so there will be no overhead wires. On North Fourth Street, between Main and Wood streets, and on South Second Street, between Main and Broadway streets, the roads will

The heavy spring rains highlighted a major flaw in Batavia’s Main Street revitalization project because several of the planter boxes with street trees won’t drain and are retaining water.LISA WAKELAND/THE COMMUNITY PRESS

be rebuilt and include new curbs, gutters and storm water improvements. To pay for the project — engineering, construction and landscaping — Batavia received a $985,000 state grant and a $1.3 million grant from

Ohio, Nichols said. They also issued $3 million in bonds that will be paid off during the next 20 years. Want more Batavia news? Follow Lisa Wakeland on Twitter @lisawakeland.

Root of 15-foot sinkhole still not fixed By Keith BieryGolick

MIAMI TWP. — A collapsed stormwater pipeline caused a sinkhole along the property line of two households in Miami Township’s Orchard Valley subdivision in May last year. Bob Wetick and Diane Welch, who live on Scarlet Maple Court, brought the issue to township trustees and were told it was a county issue. County officials told them it was a private property issue and the county had no responsibility to fix it. “I never thought in a hundred years I’d be involved in something so ridiculous,” Wetick said. And so it went. Almost a year later nothing has been done to fix the problem, but county officials recently set a public hearing for a petition filed by the property owners. Wetick claims the pipeline serves “pretty much the entire subdivision” and the county’s stance that two families should be responsible for fixing it is unfair. The pipeline affects up to 147 landowners and the sinkhole it caused is 15 feet in diameter and 11 feet deep, according to the petition. Wetick said this section of the collapsed pipeline could just be the beginning. An inspection of the pipeline by SWS Environmental Services revealed “the entire storm sewer

system, the majority of which runs along the public roadway, is significantly compromised and in need of extensive improvements,” the petition states. The property owners received two estimates for the collapsed section. The estimates ranged between $7,846 and $8,600. Michael Mann, the attorney representing Wetick and Welch, said the petition attempts to spread the cost of repair throughout the subdivision to those affected by it. “The stormwater has to go somewhere, espe-

cially after the winter we had,” Mann said. “The bottom line is there is a collapse, and there could be more. It’s a rather large burden for one or a couple of homeowners to take on.” County Commissioners will conduct a public hearing 7 p.m. Wednesday, June 4, at the county engineer’s conference room, 2381 Clermont Center Drive.

New Richmond Exempted Village School District cafeterias will serve 56,000 fewer meals this year as students are saying a collective 'Yuk' to the new federal nutrition guidelines which require more whole grains. Pictured are NREVSD food service workers Bonnie Caudill and Cristy Behler. THANKS TO ENOS PENNINGTON

New Richmond schools to lose $131K


he new federal and state nutrition standards implemented in 2012 were designed to cut down on students’ waistlines in the long term, but in the short term they are cutting into the bottom line of the New Richmond Exempted Village School District’s food service. NREVSD food service director Brenda Young has estimated to the Board of Education that student rejection of federal and state mandates that 51 percent of all grains offered in cafeterias to be whole grain rich and that all food trays must contain a fruit or vegetable will result in a 56,500 fewer meals being served in district cafeterias this school year. NREVSD chief financial officer Teresa S. Napier the decline in meals served will result in the NREVSD losing $131,300 this school year. Total cost of services this school year is $1.036 million with projected revenue of $905,000. The previous school year totals were $1,109,500 million in total cost of services versus $1,030,900 in program revenue for a two-year loss of $209,900. An example of a new healthier lunch would be a wholewheat cheese pizza, baked sweet potato fries, raw grape tomatoes, low-fat ranch dip, applesauce and low-fat milk. These healthier meals are getting a collective ‘yuk’ from students. “When you can’t get kids to eat pizza you know you have a problem,” said Young, whose mid-year report to the Board of Education showed district cafeterias serving 200,495 lunches during the first half of the school year compared to 228,787 served in 2012. Schools are permitted to opt out of the school lunch program, but those that do lose federal reimbursements which can be as high as $2.93 per free lunch served and $2.53 per reduced lunch served. New Richmond will serve an estimated 243,000 free and 27,000 reduced lunches this school year, so opting out is

not an option. New Richmond students are not the only ones saying no to the federal nutrition guidelines. The U.S. Department of Agriculture estimated that Ohio public schools served 9 million fewer meals during the first half of 2013-2014. District cafeterias are having trouble giving lunches away as free lunches served has declined by 10,241 from 2012 and reduced lunches by 4,379. Some of the change is attributed to the NREVSD’s percentage of students qualifying for free or reduced lunches dropping from 46 to 39 percent, but the big reason is more brown bags coming into the cafeterias. “Kids are bringing in the foods that we are not allowed to serve,” said Young. The big culprit is the whole grain requirement. “The kids are OK with the whole grain spaghetti but it’s being covered by (meatless) sauce,” said Young. “Even the chicken nuggets and chicken strips must have whole grain coating and that changes the taste. But when it comes to a crust like pizza or the breakfast pizza, there’s a big difference in the taste and the kids don’t like

it.” Mac and cheese, a traditional favorite with kids, is becoming a tough sell. “The whole grain macaroni is darker and looks dirty and the kids think there’s something wrong with it,” said Young. Young’s department closely monitors and charts what is being eaten and what gets left on trays. “We have to have either a fruit or a vegetable on the tray, so when we’re serving a vegetable we know the majority doesn’t like we will put the fruit on the tray that day,” said Young. “They still have the option of picking the vegetable.” An interesting result of the surveys is that New Richmond students prefer broccoli over sweet potato fries. “Preferences will vary from building to building,” said Young. “Students at one building will grab raw vegetables (which must be made available daily) and they won’t be touched at another building.” Young doesn’t anticipate any improvement next year. “Next year’s rules will require 100 percent whole grains along with a phase out of sodium,” said Young.

Bethel grad Pangallo new pilot for alma mater By Scott Springer

BETHEL — In his final season as head coach, Jeff Dennis led Bethel-Tate’s baseball team to a 13-12 season that ended with a 4-3 loss to Wyoming in the tournament at Crosley Field in Blue Ash last May. Dennis stepped aside after that game and the new top Tiger is Dion Pangallo, a former Bethel-Tate player for Dennis in the mid 1980s, who still doesn’t call his former coach by his first name. “Mr. Dennis, J.D.,” Pangallo said. “I haven’t lost the respect factor.” Pangallo was an assistant for Dennis the past 13 seasons and was around several pretty good squads. Among those were a 2009-2010 team that won a district championship and another very good squad from 2006. Now, with a coaching change and the loss of some talented seniors, Pangallo is proud to lead his alma mater onto the diamond that sits behind the football stadium. During his playing days, Bethel-Tate played at the site of the current middle school. “I couldn’t be any more appreciative to the school and the kids that I’m the head coach here,” Pangallo said. The Tigers have had a rocky start with losses to Summit Country Day, Cincinnati Country Day and Northwest, along with some postponements. They hope to right the ship in

the Southern Buckeye Conference games. “I think we’re going to be a very competitive team,” Pangallo said. “I would never discount Pangallo us.” The non-conference schedule, as always, is aggressive. An early game with Madeira of the Cincinnati Hills League was rained out and a double-header with Mariemont of the CHL is also on the schedule. As with many teams in the short season, precipitation can interfere with consistency. “I think as long as we get our competitiveness together and get our kids on the same page, we’ll be fine,” Pangallo said. What Pangallo offers is the perspective of having played for Bethel-Tate at a very busy position. At shortstop from 1984-1987, he knows the value of having a short memory in the field. “If you make an error, cheer your buddy on and move on to the next play,” Pangallo said. “It doesn’t do any good to wreak havoc from the past. Put it behind you. We have a bunch of good, young men out there. I think with the seniors we have, we’ll put a nice tough team on the field and everyone will give us respect at the end of the year.” If anything, Pangallo has some veteran minds to consult when he makes the short walk

from the third-base coaches box to the dugout. Former head coach Jeff Dennis has essentially switched jobs with Pangallo and is now an assistant along with Junior Atkins (father of former Tiger, Tyler Atkins). His pitching coach is former teammate Eric Moorhead.

“He was one year behind me in high school,” Pangallo said of Moorhead. “He pitched and I played shortstop. Mr. Dennis has coached here for 37 years and Junior Atkins and I played summer softball for many, many years.” The coaching quartet hopes

to steer the Tigers to some late spring victories while developing players for future seasons. Upcoming games include a home contest with cross-county rival, Felicity-Franklin on April 21. Bethel-Tate hits the road April 23 at Williamsburg and April 24 at Western Brown.

PRESS PREPS HIGHLIGHTS By Scott Springer and Mark D. Motz


» Felicity-Franklin lost to Clermont Northeastern 11-1 in six innings on April 8. Senior Jesse Miles was 2-3 with a double for the Cardinals in the defeat. » McNicholas beat Hillsboro 7-6 April 10 and knocked of GCL Coed rival Roger Bacon 7-1 April 11 to improve to 4-2 (2-1 GCL).

MT. WASHINGTON — The McNicholas High School boys volleyball team reached the state final four last season. Head coach Julie Mulvey said a return to the state tournament in 2014 is a reasonable goal despite heavy losses to graduation. “It’s probably realistic,” Mulvey said. “We replace five seniors with five seniors. They’re just as talented as last year, if not a little more so. If we stay healthy and keep working hard, I think we can get back.” Senior captains Grant Tore and Elliott Painter will be key if they do. Tore plays an outside hitter, while Painter sets and also plays outside hitter. “They’re not just leaders on the court, but they’re leaders in the school,” Mulvey said. “They’re smart, they work hard and they have a great attitude. They’re just the kind of guys you want to be your captains.” The other seniors include returning 6-foot-7 outside hitter Jeremy Tiettmeyer and returning middle hitter Kuzi Nyika-Mikory. Classmate Lucas Wheeler is on the team for the first time and adds depth as a

defensive specialist. Junior Connor Games returns for his second season as the other setter in McNick’s 6-2 scheme. Mulvey said the most important thing is they are re-gelling. “A lot of these guys were on the team last year, but they’re adjusting to starting roles. They’re learning that they have each other’s backs. They had the seniors last year to rely

on and now they have to step up for themselves,” Mulvey said. McNick started the season with three losses, falling on the road to Columbus St. Charles and Cuyahoga Walsh Jesuit, and at home against Division I power St. Xavier. The Rockets opened Greater Catholic League Coed play with straight-set wins against Roger Bacon and Dayton Carroll.

“We have to work on our consistency and finishing a game,” Mulvey said. “We’ve had a couple games where were were at 23 or 24 and let the other team back in.” The Rockets were scheduled to play in the Buckeye Classic tournament April 12 and 13 and get back to GCL Coed action hosting Middletown Fenwick April 15.

» Felicity-Franklin beat Clermont Northeastern 6-4 on April 8. Junior Sandy Woodmansee got the win and struck out eight. Junior Makayla Jacobs was 3-4 with a pair of runs scored and a run batted in. » Bethel-Tate lost to Amelia 8-4 on April 9. » McNicholas suffered its first two losses of the season, falling 4-2 at home against Williamsburg April 10 and 9-7 at Roger Bacon to fall to 4-2 (0-1 GCL Coed).

Crying is not the same as godly sorrow In 1 Corinthians chapter five you may remember apostle Paul had to write a harsh letter to the Corinthians concerning the matter of a man within the church who had been guilty of gross immorality. He had an incestuous and adulterous relationship with his own father’s wife…his stepmother. Paul was outraged that they had done nothing about it. So, consequently he reprimands them. But now he is able to write a second letter as Paul learns that the church had finally dealt with the situation and the man had confessed his sin. Apostle Paul now praises the Corinthian Church declaring that although it had been

painful for him to write such a letter, it did have its desired effect. Paul declares emphatically that although he Ben had made Hurst COMMUNITY PRESS them sorry with the letter, GUEST COLUMNIST and he himself struggled to write the letter to them in such a manner, he realizes that it was necessary to bring them and this man to repentance, and back into a right relationship with Almighty God as well. And this was a godly sorrow that produced the right response.

This passage also reveals just how human Paul really was as it brought Paul no satisfaction to be so harsh with them. It brings no pastor satisfaction to have to preach to his congregation on difficult and sensitive subjects…but at times it is necessary to bring folk to an awareness of their sin and the harm it brings on the church, and to themselves. The Bible says, “For godly sorrow produces repentance to salvation not to be repented of: but the sorrow of the world produces death” (2 Corinthians 7:10). Or in another words, those folk who have momentary regret for something they have done, but regret is not

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR In memory of Barbara Bruine

Barbara Williams Bruine was a lifelong resident of Bethel, and attended Bethel Tate Schools all 12 years. I knew Barbara in her capacity as assistant manager and later as a director of the Bethel Building and Loan Co. Prior to her being hired by the Building and Loan, she was employed by the First National Bank of Bethel. She was mentored by Ms. Gayle Thompson, now100 years of age and still quite lucid. My utmost respect for Barbara is derived from two components of her professional career. In her capacity as assistant manager of the BB&L, with Robert Saner as her supervisor, I knew that she spent countless hours processing the necessary paperwork to facilitate the company’s membership into the Federal Savings and Loan Insurance Corporation (FSLIC) during the savings and loan crisis of 1985. Indeed, Mr. Saner stated, “she had worked many extra hours faithfully, under tough conditions, and contributed in a positive manner at all times.” At least one other aspect of Barbara’s life deserves mention. She overcame the uneasiness that occurs when different people replace a high level management or executive position, especially within the confines of small town atmosphere where egos sometimes are bruised. She freely contributed to my recent book, “Generations of Partnerships,” a book released on the 125th anniversary of the founding of what is now the Community Savings Bank. I respect and admire her courage and integrity, and am grateful to have known Barbara.

The best 20 years of my life

“Jesus has clear teaching on issue of sexuality” (April 2, 2014, page A6) cites Mark 10:1-12. I have a good friend who is Roman Catholic but can’t participate in a mass because he’s been through a divorce and then married a different woman. I’m pretty sure that’s because of Mark 10:11, “Whoever divorces his wife and mar-

ries another commits adultery against her.” That’s based on one of the Ten Commandments. Find out in Exodus 20:14. That’s in the Old Testament. My wife and I were both married before. Our first marriages turned out to be serious mistakes. We just celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary. They’ve been the best 20 years of my life. I am not ashamed that I divorced my first wife and married another. I’m not proud of it, either. It happened. I hope anyone in a similar situation feels the same way, but I think it’s up to each person to decide.

Recently, Garry McGee indicated that he is perplexed about my article insisting that teachers should be given credit for the financial turnaround. Let me help. A significant portion of the surplus is due to contract extensions that were negotiated AFTER the failed November levy. On Dec. 9, the board voted to extend the base and step freezes for two years for teachers and public employees and lengthen teacher work days. They also voted to freeze the salaries of Dr. Kline and Treasurer Cropper until 2016 and 2018, respectively. How much is this saving the district over the next 5 years? Salary concessions alone will save $7.9 million and the insurance concessions will save another $4.4 million. Regarding the tea party trying to take credit for the surplus, on Mar. 10 Ted Stevenot, co-founder of the Clermont County Tea Party, sent an email to his followers discussing the surplus. He concluded with, “Wow! What happened between last year and this year? Oh wait ... an election.” Somehow we’re to believe that electing three tea party endorsed candidates to the board three months prior generated millions of dollars in revenue. Again, credit needs to go where credit is due, to the hard-working employees of WCLSD.

repentance. Or, maybe they are sorrowful for the moment shedding crocodile tears, but again sorrow by itself is not repentance, unless it is a godly sorrow that leads to repentance. This is God’s definition of true repentance. For example in 1 Thessalonians1:9 when Paul wrote, “…how you turned to God from idols.” There was not only a change of mind, but a change of heart and a new direction as they no longer worshipped idols…that’s repentance. Another great example in the Bible is Peter who denied his Lord, and then went out and wept bitterly. He would never deny his Lord again. His was a

godly sorrow that produced repentance and a changed life. Judas on the other hand wept as well; he did regret what he had done. He had remorse, but his was a worldly sorrow that produced death, not just because he took his life, but because he never truly believed in the Lord as did the other eleven. Hebrews 12:17 declares that Esau (Jacob’s brother), “…found no place of repentance, though he sought it carefully with tears.” Remember the shedding of tears is not the same as godly sorrow.

CH@TROOM Last week’s question Would you support tolls for a new Brent Spence Bridge if that was the only way to get the bridge replaced?

“Absolutely. I'd support tolls even if there were other options to get it built. Toll roads and bridges are an everyday part of life in many areas of the country. We have somehow been sheltered from this reality. “Tolls are a reasonable way to pay for necessary infrastructure and places the cost on those who actually use it. Put up the toll booths and let's git 'er done!” R.W.J.

“Absolutely NOT! Can you imagine the traffic jams from both sides if this would happen! “Tell Congress to stop giving billions of dollars in foreign aid and keep the monies for projects like this at home!” O.H.R.

“Yes, I definitely would support tolls. I frequently travel in and around Chicago and have not found tolls cumbersome there. “The bridge is unsafe and needs to be replaced. If tolls can move the project forward ASAP I say go for it!” S.J.P.

“Yes - as long as discounted EZ Passes are made available for area residents who use the bridge on a regular basis. As a life-long Cincinnati native I have watched this interstate bridge (one of the busiest in the US) deteriorate under the overuse to which it has been subjected since it opened in November of 1963. “It was obsolete the day the ribbon was cut, it's a vital north/ south commerce and transportation link and if tolls are the only way to get it built then we'll all have to bite the bullet and pitch in (better than paying for the Bengals stadium we were all hi-

stadium taxes!”

NEXT QUESTION Earth Day is April 22. What, if anything, do you do to observe Earth Day? Do you believe the day is more or less important than it was when it began in 1970? Why or why not? Every week we ask readers a question they can reply to via e-mail. Send your answers to with Chatroom in the subject line by 5 p.m. on Thursday.

jacked into building)! 'Nuff said.” M.M.

“I would support the toll under any circumstances. We travel throughout the U.S., and have never had a problem with "pay to ride". If you use the bridge, you should help pay for it. J.K.

“Yes! The bridge needs to be replaced and tolls make sense to me.” E.E.C.

“Gosh. My Dad always said that the first thing government does for Americans with their hard-earned tax deposits is to have safe roads and efficient bridges for its citizens. Then the other stuff. “Congress, including our scared local reps (scared of losing sacred cow citizen money), are an embarrassment on this issue. No spine, no roads, no bridges. When's the election?” K.P.

“Yes, I grew up in Philadelphia where all the bridges to NJ were toll bridges. Then I lived for a time in Baltimore and found much of the same. “I have been in Cincinnati for many years without tolls and would consider those years 'a gift'. You use it, you pay for it is a better concept to me than our


“Tolls should only be used if the feds make a nationwide policy that they are no longer going to fund ANY bridge replacements ANYWHERE. “Otherwise, when the bridge becomes truly structurally deficient (risk of collapse) as opposed to functionally obsolete (not up to today's standards) they'll have no choice but to pony up money.” P.C.

“I would grudgingly support tolls on the new bridge, provided that would guarantee that there would be no additional tax burden placed upon Hamilton County property owners to pay for the bridge, like they did for the stupid stadiums (especially Paul Brown stadium). “Whomever agreed to the ridiculous terms for financing and maintaining Brown stadium ought to be severely chastised. Tolls would make a modicum of sense on the bridge, but only if the method of collection were EZPass style.” M.F.

“Tolls are not the only way to get the bridge built. But imagine turning a third of Covington or a fifth of downtown Cincinnati into the staging area for the cars and trucks that would have to slow down to make the payment. Or put the toll plaza at 275 in Erlanger. Then the new bridge could be much smaller because people would go around the loop.” N.F.

“In an age where nobody seems to want to pay for anything that involves taxes, tolls on the I-75/I-71 bridge makes perfect sense. Let those that use the bridge pay for some of the costs.” T.C.

Bourbon mustard glaze for ham

We always have ham for Easter brunch. Each year I try to change up the glaze. Here’s what I’ll be making this year. Go to taste on glaze ingredients, using less, or more of each ingredient. 1-1/2 cups honey; 3/4 cup molasses. I use unsulphured 3/4 cup bourbon, 1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons orange juice concentrate, thawed Dijon mustard. I start with 3 generous tablespoons and go from there. Combine everything and heat in pan over low heat just until mixture heats through. Remove a cup of mixture and set aside. As ham is roasting (at 325 until ham reaches 140 degrees, about 15 minutes or so per pound depending upon how cold the ham is when you put it in the oven, whether it has a bone, etc.) baste occasionally with glaze. When ham is done, remove drippings and add to remaining glaze. Heat up and serve alongside. Tip: To make it taste like the glaze you get in the package for honey baked glazed ham, add a teaspoon or more of pumpkin pie spice to the glaze.

Diane Deutsch’s Passover apple cake The requests for this recipe continue every year at this time. I haven’t made it, but I recall Diane telling me she had to make 2 of these heirloom cakes, since her kids finished one by themselves. Batter 2 cups sugar 1/2 cup Canola oil 4 eggs 1 teaspoon vanilla 2 teaspoons baking powder 1 1/2 cups matzo cake meal Topping/filling 3 cups peeled finely diced apples 1-1/2 cups chopped walnuts 2 tablespoons sugar 1-1/2 teaspoons cinnamon Preheat oven to 350.

cle, questions were raised as to the best way to clean baked on coatings of cheese in pan. Squirt dishwashing soap into the pan, cover with a bit of boiling water. Leave overnight, then wash clean. Polishing copper with Rita Heikenfeld will be serving a bourbon mustard glaze on her Easter ham this year. THANKS ketchup - does it work? TO RITA HEIKENFELD Yes! I tried it on my copper pan. I wiped a thin layer over the tarnished pan and let it sit about five minutes. The ketchup rinsed off, leaving the pan shiny. It’s the acid in the ketchup that does the trick.

Home value down, but don’t cut back insurance Although home values have started going back up in recent years, in many cases they are no where near the valuations they had at the height of the housing boom. Just because the market value of your home may be down, that’s no reason to think you need to cut back on your homeowners insurance. In fact, a lot of homeowners are finding the cost to rebuild their house these days is far greater than they ever imagined. A house valued on the Hamilton County Auditor’s website as being worth $521,000, is valued by an insurance company at $875,000. The insurance company came up with the much higher value because it’s based on the replacement cost of the house. Meanwhile, the auditor’s valuation is based on the market value of the property. Market value can

vary greatly depending on the location of the property. For instance, a house in a Howard depressed Ain city neighHEY HOWARD! borhood may be valued at $100,000, while the exact same house located in a nice suburb could be valued at more than $225,000. However, neither of those valuations have anything to do with the cost to rebuild the house. In both neighborhoods the cost to rebuild would be exactly the same. All this means the premium to insure your home will continue to increase even though the market value may have decreased. One insurance professional tells me people will often call asking why their premium in-

creased. She says it’s partly because of storms and bad weather throughout the area and the nation, but also because the cost to replace the home has gone up due to inflation of materials and wage increases. Premiums will go up as necessary to allow insurance companies to not only make a profit, but to insure they have enough money to cover future disasters. It’s important to discuss the type of insurance you need to protect your house. There are two types: replacement value and market value. Market Value insurance, also known as actual cash value, can save you a great deal of money each year on your insurance premium. But it takes into account the depreciation of your home over time. Therefore, you won’t receive enough money to rebuild your house exactly as it was in the

event of a disaster. On the other hand, replacement value insurance, while costing more money, will insure your home for 100 percent of the cost to rebuild exactly as it was. It’s important to compare policies from different insurance companies and ask if you’re receiving the lowest available rates before picking one company. Remember that home valued at $875,000 by one insurance company? Another company valued the same home at $955,000, thereby charging a lot more for the premium. So, it’s important to also get another estimate of the replacement value if you have any questions. Howard Ain's column appears bi-weekly in the Community Press newspapers.

Surprise party for Adams County a WWII veteran Cancer Center Howdy Folks, Well we got the taters planted last week. The ground wasn't real dry, but we got them in the ground on St. Patrick’s day when there was snow. The Bethel Lions Club pancake breakfast was one of the best with the children and parents helping from the Diamond ball club. The Lions Club donated some money last year to them. We thank them for their help. If you need a new pontoon boat stop at Bethel Marine and Tire - they have them. If you need boat repair, they do that and also vehicle repair and all kinds of tires. We stopped to sell them pancake tickets and was surprised how they have changed the office and display area. They sure know their business. Their work will satisfy you and when you come in you will be greeted with, 'Can I help you' and a smile. We went to a 90th birthday party Sunday at West Union. This feller has been in the Grange there for several years. He was in the Second World War; he was a P.O.W. for six months. While he was there, there was another prisoner that was an artist. He asked if he could draw a picture of the airplane they were in and shot down. This feller did this and other things for this feller. The name of the feller was Grover Swearingen.

he took his shoe laces out and raveled them out making a thread. By using a needle and George this thread Rooks he embroiOLE FISHERMAN dered the picture of the airplane on his handkerchief, along with the names of each person on the plane. I am getting a picture of this to keep. Grover took this handkerchief to a museum and donated it to them in Texas. They were very thankful for the gift. They have a picture of when he gave it to them. There was a large crowd at his birthday party and this was a surprise. His son and daughter picked him up and said they had a surprise for him; by golly he was surprised. He said in 10 years he will be 100. The Owensville Historical Society has been giving a memorial scholarship to a student of Clermont Northeastern High School each year. The society is doing some good work. The museum can be opened for a tour by calling Shirley at 732-0081 or Edna at 732-6358. These ladies will gladly open and give you the history of the items in the museum also the log cabin. The log cabin was in Owensville and folks lived in it. Then it was taken down marked each log

then rebuilt in the Gauche Park. There has been a lot of work to help finish so folks can see and enjoy how folks lived back in that time. That was hard living. We go today speak to the seniors at the Welcome Center at the Senior Services on Jim Sauls Drive. They will have a table so we can set some of the wood items we make. Then I can tell how they are made and the tools we use to do this. We finished a couple of miniature Eiffel Towers to take along to show. Each morning we have an 'alarm clock.' He sleeps at the foot of the bed, then at about 6 a.m. he starts walking up and down using our heads as a turning around point. Then I hear Ruth Ann say, ‘Don’t bite'. We put him under the cover and hear him come crawling out. When we walk out of the bedroom he will jump off the recliner and try to get us. He is such a blessing. He knows when we are getting ready to go some place. Ruth Ann gives him some treats in the living room so he doesn't run out the door when we go out. Start your week by going to the house of worship of your choice and praise the Good Lord. God Bless all. More Later. George Rooks is a retired park ranger. Rooks served for 28 years with the last five as manager of East Fork State Park.
