BECAUSE COMMUNITY MATTERS

Bethel seeks grant for parking lot By John Seney

jseney@communitypress.com

BETHEL — Village officials are applying for a federal Community Development Block Grant to pay for the repaving of the municipal parking lot. Administrator Travis Dotson said the lot, next to the municipal building at 120 N. Main St., qualifies for the grant because it is the main parking lot for the downtown area. Village council members March 22 approved the block grant application. The block grant funding comes from the federal Department of Housing and Urban Development, but is allocated by the Clermont County commissioners. Dotson said there may not be a lot of funding available this year, because a lot of the funds may be allocated for rebuilding after the

NEXT MEETING

The next village council meeting is 6:30 p.m. Thursday, April 12, at the municipal building, 120 N. Main St.

March 2 tornadoes. “But we will apply,” he said. Dotson said he expects the project to cost about $65,000. The village received a Community Development Block Grant last year for repairing the South Charity Street bridge. Work on the the bridge is expected to begin this spring. The bridge project will to cost about $200,000, with most of that coming from the grant. The vehicle bridge on South Charity is open to traffic, but in need of repairs. A pedestrian bridge which was washed out also will be replaced.

Coolers, food OK at Burke Park By John Seney jseney@communitypress.com

BETHEL — Village officials April 12 said private organizations are not allowed to prohibit coolers and outside food at Burke Park. Administrator Travis Dotson told council members he has received complaints from people not being allowed to bring coolers to baseball and softball games at the park. Geoff Vontz, president of the Bethel Boosters Association, which organizes baseball and softball games at the park’s ball fields, said the group adopted the rule against coolers to increase income from concession sales. He said too many parents were bringing coolers and picnics to games. Dotson said picnics and coolers were allowed in Burke Park. The association did not have an exclusive contract and could

not prohibit people from bringing food to games, he said. Dotson said village officials may have to post signs on the fields to point out that coolers are al-

lowed. Mayor Alan Ausman said only two of the ball fields used by the association are in Burke Park. The other fields are at Ebon Hill Intermediate School and under the jurisdiction of the BethelTate school board. Ausman said the association officials would have to check with members of the school board on the rules for their fields. The issue was brought to light at the council meeting during a discussion of an internal dispute in the boosters group. See BURKE, Page A2 the right and log in using your Facebook account.

Rick Peters, a softball coach, said the association’s officials threatened to remove him as coach because of a confrontation with officials over field use. Vontz said Peters had

used profanity. Village officials said they had no jurisdiction over the rules of a private organization. “When you sign on to be a coach, you agree to abide by their rules,” council member Jeremiah Hembree told Peters. “I hope this can be resolved in a mature way,” Hembree said.

PROM MEMORIES Last week, the Community Press asked for your prom or graduation memories. Here is a memory from a Milford resident about her prom. As a sophomore in 1965 in the burbs of Chicago, I was asked to my first prom. There were no balloons, no airplane sky messages, no “promposals,” no texting and certainly no Facebook, no photos to record the event. The poor guy had to scrounge up the nerve to ask for the date face to face and risk a major rejection. For me, he was a sweet guy and one I had a crush on. He called on our house phone and asked if he could come over. I know he practiced, but face to face it became all bumfuggled and he blurted out: “You wouldn’t want to go to the prom with me would you, probably not but I thought I’d ask” … all in one winded breadth. Back then, we didn’t rent limos, there were no “after prom parties.” Motels and alcohol were not even on the radar. The girls

PROM, GRADUATION MEMORIES SOUGHT April proms bring May graduations, bring a lifetime of memories. What do you remember of your high school prom, after prom and graduation? Maybe it was the fancy dress you talked your parents into spending way too much money on, or maybe you made your own dress. Did you and your date have a fancy meal, or hit the McDonald’s drivethrough? And was that really you with that big hair? How late did you stay out? Send your stories to clermont@communitypress.com. Include a photo or two if you still have them. Send photos as .jpg attachments.

did, however, splurge for our beehive and bouffant hairdos at the local beauty shop (they weren’t called salons or spas). We did our own manicures and if there was time, painted our toenails. Because our prom was on a Friday evening, we were permitted to leave school an hour early (whooo hoo). Those beehives and bouffants took hours so we needed a head start, not to mention the extra time it took to apply our heavy black eyeliner and extra blue shadow. Glam-

our required patience and precision. The dance was held at a generic ballroom in downtown Chicago. The tickets were an outrageous $10 per couple. Two semischmaltzy restaurants offered late, after-prom dinners. You had your choice of chicken or beef for the whopping bargain of $30 per couple, tip included. I know my date saved for months for that evening. All that and we made it home by our midnight curfew. Most parents back

then did not foot the bill for our extravaganza, nor did they have the money to even chip in. The best part of the prom event was my Mom allowing me to play hookey and shop for the perfect dress and have lunch at the famous Palmer House. We found a wonderful gown which was much too pricey. It was a simple dress by today’s standards. Spending $100 for a prom dress in 1965 was ridiculous. Oh, and don’t forget the long white elbow length gloves (with pearl accents),

there’s another 10 bucks. However, she paid half and the dress and gloves made it home with us on the ell safe and sound. Now 46 years and several dances, dresses and a wedding gown later, my dear Mom is gone, but I will never forget how special she made my first prom with shopping, primping, photos and breakfast the next morning for all our friends, good old-fashioned fun. The magic of prom night doesn’t fade away. You never forget your date (and his awful ba-

by blue tuxedo) and all the important people who made your night exciting and magical. To all you Milford Eagles and Eaglettes, please be responsible and safe on your special night this year. May your memories be sweet and unforgettable. And, let your parents take as many pictures as they want without any whining on your part, it’s their big night, too. And boys, don’t forget to open the car (or limo) doors for your gorgeous date.

Tigers, Cardinals feature state experience By Scott Springer

‘Where did this kid come from?’ Small has received interest from UC and may eventually sign. For now, the sky’s the limit. “If my ankle gets fully healed, I’m thinking 6’8”,” Small said.

BETHEL — This portion of Clermont County has the distinction of having three state-caliber track athletes competing in meets this season that have experienced the pomp and circumstance of Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium in Columbus. At Bethel-Tate, Lauren Stacy was eighth in the state in the shot put and 13th in discus as a sophomore. Her teammate, Matt Small, took third in the high jump as junior. Meanwhile, at FelicityFranklin, Arica Stutz missed going her sophomore year, but did make it in the 100 hurdles as a freshman in 2010. Recently, that trio of talent was together at an April invitational to update The Bethel Journal on their progress.

Lauren Stacy

After finishing as district champ in the shot put and discus in her debut season at BethelTate, Stacy has continued her success in the area throwing pits. As of presstime, her worst outdoor performance was third place in the discus April 21. Outside of that event, Stacy’s name has been at the top at each meet she’s participated in. “I like winning,” Stacy said. Instead of playing football for her father, Wayne, as she did in 2010 (offensive line), Lauren Stacy took the fall to work on her craft. She wrapped up a busy indoor winter season in the middle of March, participating in the weight throw and shot. At one stop in Cedarville she heaved the round steel ball 40’6”. “I think shot is where my forte

is,” Stacy said. “I’m still working on disc; it’s a work in progress. I’m hoping to be 43’ in shot by state and 135’ in disc.” Those totals would put her in with the cream of the crop in Division III at the state meet, an experience she hopes to enjoy once again as a junior. “It was fun,” Stacy said. “It was one of the best experiences you could ever have. I was used to doing big meets from doing AAU as a child. It wasn’t totally nerveracking for me as I was used to being at big meets with my dad.” Wayne Stacy has coached college track and has supervised his daughter’s progress. He also had some hand in getting Lauren’s teammate Matt Small on the trip to the state meet last year. Lauren Stacy is open as far as her college interests. She lists schools in Iowa, Florida and

South Carolina as contacting her as well as Bowling Green, Ohio University, the University of Cincinnati and Wilmington. She’s also looked at Kent State and Grandview (Iowa - where the Stacy’s moved from). Though the early meets have resulted in consistent wins, she looks forward to tougher competition as the season progresses.

“It was right before a football game and I was playing basketball (outside),” Small said. “Jacob (Dickhaus) had his car there and they’re like, ‘Jump the car!’ I just went and jumped it.” He went from a compact car to clearing the bar at 6’5” in Columbus in a year’s time. Practice and track shoes proved their worth. “I cleared 6’ my first time in gym shoes,” Small said. “They were like, ‘That could win every meet!’ I have no form, so apparently I have to be able to jump.” Small’s personal best is 6’6” at a meet in Wilmington. While not your typical high jumper, Small’s heard from most college coaches that improved form could soar him further upward. “Some people say I look like one (high jumper),” Small said. “Last year, no one thought I was good and then I’d jump and it was,

Matt Small

At 5’10”, Small’s weight appears to be up from the 130 pounds and change it was during football season. His ankle is also healing from an injury during Bethel-Tate’s basketball season, where the young Tiger can easily dunk. When healthy, Small’s frame has the ability to do curious things. To the best of his recollection, the first car jump was a 1997 Ford Probe.

It’s been written before, but junior Arica Stutz practices on a Felicity-Franklin team that has four hurdles, no high jump bar and no track. “We run around the parking lot,” Stutz said. “I also can’t practice high jump. I think our bar just broke on accident. It’s also hard to practice hurdles on concrete.” Because of that, Stutz usually travels to Bethel to use their facilities. Despite the setbacks and inconveniences, Stutz has personal bests of 15.76 in the 100 hurdles, 5’1” in the high jump and 15’ in the long jump. Her mother was a hurdler, as was one of her sisters. Now, Arica Stutz has all of the family records. The coach of the Ohio Collegiate Athletic Conference champion UC Clermont, Mike Mathews, is familiar with her basketball work and coaches her older sisters Cayla and Marisa. “I know he really wants me to come to Clermont and play,” she said. “I know my major (architectural engineering) should be my main focus, but track will be the deciding factor in choosing.” Unfortunately, UC Clermont does not offer track. If they did, Arica Stutz might be open to grabbing rebounds again. Lauren Stacy, Matt Small and Arica Stutz will be in competition again at the SBAAC meet at Amelia High School May 8-9.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Earlier this month, John Corbin, director of highway maintenance in Washington Township, succumbed to cancer at too young an age (55). John was a good and decent man admired and respected by all who came in contact with him. He had the knack of making friends out of strangers and adding these new friends to his huge extended family. It has been said that a good man can be measured by his many little, nameless acts of kindness and love. Those of us who experienced John Corbin’s charm over the years, perceptively understood that he was a very good man. Tom Dix Moscow

Donations needed

A disaster has hit our community causing destruction and even death from this terrible tornado.

Many are still suffering from the loss of their homes, loss of income, loss of the ability to work. On Thursday, May 3, there will be a “God and Country” Concert at the Bandstand by the river in New Richmond, beginning at 6:30 p.m. At 7 p.m. we will have a prayer service with Bible reading and prayer for those suffering in our community. Those attending are asked to bring food donations and nonperishable items that will be given to our local food pantry. For those who would like to make a cash donation, we’ll have a box. That evening we’ll recognize all of the volunteers who’ve worked so tirelessly to restore and rebuild Moscow. We ask God to bless them and to bless America.

Some with Social Security pay taxes Question: I recently received my 1099. Does that mean I’m going to have to pay taxes on my Social Security benefits? Answer: If you file a federal tax return as an “individual” and your total income is more than $25,000, then the answer is yes: you will have to pay federal taxes on your benefits. If you file a joint return and you and your spouse have a total income more than $32,000, you will be expected to pay federal taxes, as well. If your taxable income is below those thresholds, there is no need to pay taxes on your Social Security benefits. If you need to pay taxes on a portion of your benefits, you will need your SSA-1099. This form shows the total amount of benefits received in the previous year and is used to find out whether any benefits are subject to tax. You will need to submit it when you complete your federal income tax return. You already should have received your SSA-1099 for tax year 2011 in the mail - they were automatically mailed to all beneficiaries by January 31. If you receive Social Security and have not yet received a Form SSA-1099, you can request a replacement online at www.socialsecurity.gov/onlineservices. Or you can call Social Security’s toll-free number, 1-800-772-1213 (TTY, 1-800-325-0778) and ask a replacement SSA-1099 be mailed to you. If you would like more information about paying taxes on your Social Security benefits, visit www.irs.gov and read Publication Number 915, Social

Security and Equivalent Railroad Retirement Benefits. You also can call the Internal Revenue Service Shauna toll-free at Gardenhire 1-800-829-3676 COMMUNITY PRESS (TTY, 1-800GUEST COLUMNIST 829-4059). Question: Can I have federal taxes withheld from my Social Security check? Answer: Although you are not required to have federal taxes withheld from your Social Security benefit, you may find that easier than paying quarterly estimated tax payments. To have federal taxes withheld, or to change your original withholding request, you will need to: » Complete IRS Form W-4V. » Select the percentage (7, 10, 15, or 25 percent) of your monthly benefit amount you want withheld. » Sign and return the form to your local Social Security office by mail or in person. You may obtain IRS Form W-4V from the IRS Website at http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/ fw4v.pdf or by calling the IRS toll-free number, 1-800-829-3676. You may also obtain the form by calling Social Security at 1-800772-1213 between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. Monday through Friday. Social Security is not authorized to withhold state taxes, if any, from your benefit payment.

BETHEL

CH@TROOM April 25 question:

Do you think the recent scandals involving the Secret Service and General Services Administration is an example of a federal government that is too large and bureaucratic? “No. It is an example of a lack of morality of people in general. “This is a disgrace on the men who have passed some of the highest security checks. This was shameful. The thing that is worrisome is that this was probably not the first time and it must have been ignored. It has nothing to do with government being too big.” K.L.S. “In spite of the fact that the Republican Party has made criticism of our government their core message, and in spite of the fact that our government does do things terribly wrong from time to time, the U.S. government is rather lean compared to most of the rest of the developed world. “The trouble with the oversimplification that the Republicans have wallowed in for some decades is that we have lost a significant part of our ability to have a functional national dialogue about real problems. “It is more important for people in this nation to understand that every Republican candidate for president, and almost every member of Congress and the U.S. Senate in that party is dead set on the same type of austerity measures which doubled the length of the Great Depression in the U.S., and made it even worse in Europe, back in the 1930s. “Now Europe is dominated by people who demonize government spending, and their current recession is much worse than ours, but we have a lot of people clamoring for more bad times. “President Bush, who is no hero in my book, understood economic stimulus. President Obama has done so, and saved countless jobs, and created a platform for growth which might not have existed, and which is still fragile. “Listen to the people who say that we need a long-term program for fiscal responsibility and a short term investment in our infrastructure. These are the people who will guide us out of the smoke and rubble. “And when an alcoholic or a troubled soul emerges from this great nation’s government and does something intolerable blame the individual and fix the problems. Don’t pretend that it is an indictment of the whole complex organization that keeps us going. N.F. “No, these scandals are not caused by big bureaucratic government, they are caused by individuals and managers who exhibit incredibly bad judgment. “That such people are in charge may be the result of an organization that has gotten too big to police itself, but the explanation I favor is poor or nonexistent leadership at the top. President Harry Truman proclaimed ‘The buck stops here,’ but in today’s White House that concept has been replaced with ‘Don’t blame me.’” R.V. “This question is almost rhetorical. The Secret Service falls under the jurisdiction of the Treasury Department, so where does the accountability fall, on

the Secret Service, or the Treasury Department? “The federal government is too large and bureaucratic in many ways. There are more commissions, sub commissions, and committees in our government than one can imagine. If corporate America ran like this, you could imagine what this country would be like today?” O.H.R. “Everything about our government is too large and bureaucratic. I don’t think that this is what our founding fathers had in mind when the government was first set up. “As far as the Secret Service goes, I guess no part of government on either side is beyond corruption.” D.D. “I am so disappointed with the Secret Service. I have had the upmost respect for them for a lifetime. I can’t imagine what would have lead them so far from their mission to represent the United States and the president with the dignity we all expect. “I don’t think it has anything to do with government getting too big. I think it was poor judgment and not thinking through the repercussions. Maybe there is too much stress and expectations are too high. Regardless, I think everyone involved should be fired and their actions not tolerated now or in the future.” E.E.C. “I don’t think government is currently too big. “I think there is a push by the Republican party to paint that picture, however when they were in power they had scandals and big government abusing the people’s tax base. Two unfunded wars, tax entitlements for the wealthy, in terms of the Bush tax cuts, and not amending the carried interest tax law, no-bid contracts to companies connected to the administration. “So graft and misuse of funds cuts both ways in both parties and with these being the freshest scandals in Washington, they’ll be painted by some as government’s misuse of their power and the people’s taxes. “Government needs to be a size that will create an environment where people can get an education, job training, and have private industry regulations and safe guards in place so worker’s are not abuse or taken advantage of. “I think the current issue is that government is in a standoff on both sides so maybe we need to shrink government by shrinking the egos and inflexibility of those in Congress. I think that is where I would start to try to shrink government.” I.P. “Absolutely. And like the iceberg that sank the Titanic, you don’t see the whole picture. “The biggest problem with ‘the government’ is that there really isn’t much oversight, and many, if not all, government

agencies act as if they are not answerable or accountable to anyone. “In the private sector (at least to a certain extent) if employees mess up they risk being fired. If companies mess up they risk being prosecuted, and certainly risk their financial stability and survival. “Not so with the government, i.e., witness our president. He seems to think he can do anything, and is even counting on being re-elected in November.” Bill B. Would it were that simple. These actions may be immoral or unethical, but they are not illegal. Contrast them with alleged bribes by Wal-Mart, false accounting by Lehman Bros. or pedophile priests all of which involve illegal actions. “You are lead to the conclusion that our society thinks ‘it’s OK if I can get away with it’; that ‘accountability is for others, but I should be forgiven’. Despite the high moral image we have, and like to project abroad, of American society the actions of all these “knuckleheads” project a very different image, and actions speak louder than words! “The saddest part is that students of history will note that such actions in the past have preceded the decline and fall of empires. We have been warned!” D.R. “Yes, and not only that, what ever happened to ‘The buck stops here’? I’m amazed that apparently no one’s mother taught them to fess up when they’re wrong. “I’d have much more respect if someone admitted to wrong doing and took their punishment without whining that it was someone else’s fault.” J.K.

April 18 question:

Do you believe pastor and author Rick Warren’s assertion that dogs and cats go to heaven? Why or why not? “I do believe that dogs, cats and other animals can go to Heaven, but not in the same way as humans. Humans have a body and a soul, the body dies and the soul, if God wills it goes to Heaven. Animals do not have souls, when they die, that’s it. But, if a soul in Heaven wills for their beloved animal to be with them in Heaven, then the animal can go to Heaven. So, not all animals go to Heaven.” J.L. “If there are going to be animals in heaven we may have read about it in the Bible, Mr. Warren might be right but there is no certain evidence that he is. Heaven was created for God’s chosen people, and if He also chooses for animals then we may also see some dinosaurs there. What a great place it will be. I think I’ll trust God for His choices.” D.D. “Yes, I believe that God does have a plan for all living things. I am not sure what his plan is for the dog two doors down that continues to wake me up multiple times each week. Or maybe it should be the owner that fears a little hell and damnation.” M.A.F.

Where can individuals be found who think creatively, invent new products and have big smiles on their faces? The Clermont County Gifted STEM Center. Students from Bethel-Tate and Williamsburg local schools attending gifted classes at the center recently participated in the 2012 Invention Convention, where students displayed their own original inventions. The students studied the engineering design process. This involves asking questions about a problem in the world, and then imagining, planning, creating and improving their solutions. Students also learned techniques for thinking more creatively. They designed and created their original inventions and developed elevator pitches to promote their products. An elevator pitch is a short presentation designed to get someone interested in your project in the amount of time it takes for the elevator to get to your floor. At an evening event, the students displayed their work, delivered their elevator pitches, and were rewarded for their extra efforts.

MAY 3, 2012 • BETHEL JOURNAL • B3

Celebrate Derby with hot brown and mint juleps You don’t have to live on the south side of the Ohio River to know the first Saturday in May is Kentucky Derby Day. Some of the fastest horses in the world compete in the famous race for the distinction of wearing a necklace of roses. It’s also a Rita big party Heikenfeld day – counRITA’S KITCHEN try ham, fried apples, biscuits, spoon bread, green salad, fresh mint juleps and lemonade with mint.

Legendary Hot Brown

From the Brown Hotel in Louisville. This is the real deal – I called the hotel and verified the recipe. The photo is from the restaurant. They were so accommodating. I don’t know if I can wait until Derby Day to make this. The notes in parentheses are mine. Ingredients (makes two hot browns): 2 oz. butter (¼ cup) 2 oz. all-purpose flour (½ cup) 1 qt. heavy cream (I’d use whipping cream) ½ cup pecorino Romano cheese, plus 1 tbsp. for garnish Salt and pepper to taste 14 oz. sliced roasted turkey breast 2 slices of Texas toast (crust trimmed) 4 slices of crispy bacon 2 Roma tomatoes, sliced in half Paprika, parsley

In a two-quart saucepan, melt butter and slowly whisk in flour until combined and forms a thick paste (roux). Continue to cook roux for two minutes over medium-low heat, stirring frequently. Whisk whipping cream into the roux and cook over medium heat until the cream begins to simmer, about 2-3 minutes. Remove sauce from heat and slowly whisk in pecorino Romano cheese until the Mornay sauce is smooth. Add salt and pepper to taste. For each hot brown, place one slice of toast in an oven-safe dish and

Golden Rule Catering wins at Taste of Northern Cincinnati

Hot browns from the Brown Hotel in Louisville are quintessential Derby Day fare. THANKS TO THE BROWN HOTEL.

THANK YOU My readers are the best! Thanks to all who sent in spaghetti salad recipes for Janice Wallace. I'm sorting through them and will share soon.

cover with 7 ounces of turkey. Take two halves of Roma tomato and set them alongside the base of turkey and toast. Next, pour one half of the Mornay sauce to completely cover the dish. Sprinkle with additional pecorino Romano cheese. Place entire dish under a broiler until cheese begins to brown and bubble. Remove from broiler, cross two pieces of crispy bacon on top, sprinkle with paprika and parsley, and serve immediately.

Mint juleps

Make a simple syrup: combine 1 cup water, 1 cup sugar and a generous 1/2 cup roughly chopped spearmint leaves in a pan. Bring to a boil and cook until sugar dissolves. Let cool, then strain. Fill your frozen goblets (or even regular glasses, not frozen) with crushed ice and pour about 4 oz. bourbon and 1/4 cup mint syrup in each. Go to taste on this! Top each with a sprig of mint and a straw which has been trimmed to barely come up to the top of the cups.

Tip from Rita’s kitchen

Spearmint or peppermint – which is best for juleps? There’s always a debate about this. Spearmint is traditional, and sweeter than peppermint. Peppermint contains a lot of men-

thol, which makes it taste stronger. Peppermint is used in a lot of medicines and also in toothpastes, peppermint candies and chewing gum. Spearmint is much milder in flavor and used more in the culinary area. It used to flavor chewing gum and candy.

Rita’s clone of Kentucky Derby pie

Authentic Kentucky Derby pie is a closely guarded secret and even the name is copyrighted. Probably my most-requested recipe this time of year. Start with an unbaked pie crust.

The Taste of Northern Cincinnati had almost 1,000 guests to a yummy diversity of food, fun, family and friends. “What a great event! Delicious food, happy people, and a fun time,” said Ed Cunningham, who reflected the feelings of many. “It exceeded all expectations,” Debbie King said. “We loved the single entry price as opposed to paying per taste. Getting to vote for the best awards added a fun participatory element beyond eating.” All indoors and for one small cost, “…what an awesome concept and you pulled it off magnificently,” said Kelly Meyers. Restaurants presented guests with generous portions of their specialties, while vying for awards in five categories. Sharonville Chamber President Rich Arnold said “…every restaurant here is a winner. The satisfied expressions on each guests face said it all!” Each guest had ballots to vote in all five categories. The winners are: » Best appetizer: Savory Cupcakes presented by Golden Rule Catering,

3 large eggs, room temperature ¾ cup sugar 1 cup dark corn syrup ½ stick butter, melted and cooled 1½ teaspoons vanilla Up to 1¼ cups chopped pecans 1 cup chocolate chips (tested with Kroger’s Belgian chips) Splash of bourbon (optional but good)

B4 • BETHEL JOURNAL • MAY 3, 2012

It’s good to know your state’s lien laws before buying With extremely low interest rates these days many people are tempted to buy a new house. But if you buy or sell a house in Ohio or Kentucky, you need to know about the state’s lien laws. In December, David and Donna Allen bought a condo in Mason. “We paid cash for the condo but we wanted to do some renovations before we moved in. So, we applied for a home equity line of cred-

it,” Donna said. Since they owned the condo outright there should be no problem Howard getting a Ain loan on the HEY HOWARD! property but “the bank manager called to say there was a lien against the property that was put there after

the title search for the closing was done and it was against my husband,” Donna said. They were told the lien is from a Capital One judgment but David said he never had an account there. So, they checked with the county clerk of court. Donna said, “She sent me a copy of the original judgment from Butler County. It said the lien is to be placed against David M. Allen who lives

in Middletown. We never lived in Middletown.” In addition to that document, the clerk also gave the Allens a mistaken identity affidavit and told David to fill it out and send it to Capital One. He did, but “we’ve never heard anything back from them and I don’t even know whom to call anymore,” Donna said. Finally, Allen took that affidavit to her lender and then got approval for the line of credit on the condo, but it took an extra two weeks because of all the confusion. “This is not the first

time this has happened. When we sold our home in Fairfield Township three years ago our Realtor called and said they did a title search and there were six liens against us,” Donna said. So, what’s going on here? Well, in Ohio liens are not placed against property, but rather they are placed against a person’s name. So, anyone with a common name like David Allen could find a lot of judgments against others with that same name. Just as was finally done in this case, you simply

need to get a “not me” or “mistaken identity” affidavit from the clerk of court and take that to your lender. That will show you’re not the person named in the judgment. This same system is used in Indiana, but not used in Kentucky. In Kentucky, liens are actually placed against the properties themselves rather than a person’s name.

MAY 3, 2012 • BETHEL JOURNAL • B5

Fishing delayed by motor issues Howdy folks, Last week we built another raised bed and took the dirt out of a couple tractor tires, so if any one would like to have the tires to garden in, come and get them free. Thursday we got to go fishing. Now, I thought everything with the pontoon was ready. Well we got the license, put gas in the tank, charged the battery - everything looked good. We had minnows, the fishing tackle, put the pontoon in at the ramp, started the motor and backed out in the lake. Then Ruth Ann parked the truck and trailer. I parked the boat by the dock and the motor quit. I came to realize the bulb on the gas line was bad and wouldn’t pump gas to the motor. We then loaded the pontoon back on the trailer with the help of another boater. I have helped lots of other folks, so we had help when we needed it. We sure thank this young feller for his help. We went back home, took the gas line off and went down to Bethel Marine. I showed the young feller that is running the business what the trouble was and in a few minutes he had the right gas line and bulb that pumps the gas to the motor. I was at the business probably 15 minutes and was on my way back home to put the new line on the motor. Then pumped the bulb and put the rabbit ears on the motor to put water in. It started the motor and it was fine, so off we went back to the lake. As a friend of ours use to say, “I tella you boys,” if you need service on your boat or parts for it, stop at the Bethel Marine store on Ohio Pike. That feller knows his business and can get you going so

you can enjoy your boating. Their phone number is (513) 734BOAT or 2628. George Now I Rooks have OLE FISHERMAN talked about our problem with the boat. We got back on the lake and fished for a couple hours and caught some fine crappie, got home, cleaned the fish and Ruth Ann fried some for dinner, WOW!! Mark your calendar for the Fox Reunion. It will be held at the Monterey Baptist Church on Newtonsville-Hutchinson Road next to the Clermont Northeastern School. It is May 5 beginning at 6 p.m. there will be several groups singing. We were hoping to attend but it seems everybody has so much to do. We have a garden and herb plant sale at the Monroe Grange Hall that day from 9 a.m. till 3 p.m. Then the monthly card party there that evening beginning at 7 p.m. We have the bird feeders hanging so that we can watch them and Ruth Ann said the other evening she saw a Goldfinch feeding. We haven’t had any goldfinch since last fall and we miss watching them feed. It is so amazing how they change colors from summer yellow to fall brown then back to yellow. A friend of ours that will be 100 years young on June 7, used to say he had yellow birds. He is living in Oklahoma now

with his children so they can take care of him. Last week, as we were eating dinner, I saw a rose-breasted grosebeak at the feeder. By golly, that made our day. This is the first one this year. Ruth Ann said I guess we need to keep buying bird feed. We get ours from Carney’s Feed Mill. They mix their own bird feed. Last week, we went to Felicity and got a truck load of dowel rods. The company there makes drum sticks and dowel rods. These are the rejects that cannot be sold, so we make log bird houses out of them. We will have some of these at the Bethel Arts and Music Fest May 12 at Burke Park. Last weekend the Grant’s Farm and Greenhouses had their open house at all three of them. The one on Bucktown Road, the one on Ohio 131 and the one in the old Milford Shopping Center along U.S. 50. The crowd at the farm was good even with the chilly and damp weather. They have good plants, trees, shrubs and garden supplies. The employees are so helpful, you can get good service. Danny sure knows his business so stop at any of the places. After we left there Saturday, Ruth Ann and I stopped at the U. S. Grant Vocational School for their appreciation dinner here at the edge of Bethel. The meal was great as usual. The crowd was big. The greenhouse was busy with some great plants. They will be open until about two weeks before school is out.

We always enjoy their event. The Forsee fellers are brothers, sure know their business of cooking. The students that attend the culinary classes sure are good. Now if you would like to stop for a noon meal they are open on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. May 9 will be their last day for this school year to be open. We are still working on the tornado relief for the Bethel Lions Club. Giving out Kroger, Walmart, Home Depot and Lowe’s cards. The Goshen Lions Club and the Milford Kiwanas and the Clermont P.E.R.I. have given us donations to help. Now you thought I was forgetting the third party at our house. Well, you are wrong. Chessy is still keeping a watch on the birds. While we were at the Grants open house she was outside all day, so when we got home she sat on our laps till we went to bed. Then she slept in my chair all night. The Bethel churches will be joining together for the National Day of Prayer evening on May 3 at the Bethel United Methodist Church at 7 p.m. So come and pray for our country, world and community. Start your week by going to the house of worship of your choice and praise the Good Lord. God bless all. More later.
