Bethel to learn May 27 if levy results official By Cindy Schroeder

BETHEL — The village of Bethel will have to wait a few more days to learn if a narrowly-approved levy to help pay for 911 emergency communications is official. Unofficial results show Bethel’s 1-mill police levy won by one vote in Clermont County’s May 6 primary. Bethel voters approved the tax levy by a vote of 84 to 83. However, unofficial vote totals don’t include two provisional ballots that were to be counted when the Clermont County Board of Elections met on May 19, said Judy Miller, director of the Clermont County Board of

Elections. The board first was to decide if the two ballots met the qualifications for a provisional ballot, Miller said. If they did, those ballots were to be added to the vote count, which won’t be released until May 27 when the primary results are certified. Provisional ballots can be issued for six different reasons, including failure to register to vote in a new precinct after moving from another precinct in Ohio where you’re currently registered. “The main reason a person votes provisional is that they have no identification when they go to the polls,” Miller said. Maybe their driver’s license has expired or they forgot their ID

when they went to vote.” Also to be added to the official vote count were any absentee early voting ballots received in the mail at the Clermont County Board of Elections by the end of business on Friday, May 16. The law allows a 10-day grace period for such ballots to be received via mail at a county board of elections. “Only the ones that are postmarked the day before the election or earlier will be added to the (vote totals),” Miller said. Ohio law allows candidates who tie to decide the election’s outcome with a coin toss. Want to continue the conversation? Tweet at @CindyLSchroeder.

School hires W. Clermont principal By Jeanne Houck

Sandy Chadwick, who lives on Lewis Road, said she thinks the new zoning is a good idea. “Anything closer to (state Route) 125 is eventually going to be a business,” she said. “It’s that way all the way down, and I think it will help the township.” Michael Valentine, who owns two houses on state Route 125, is more concerned about the township and county’s plans to extend the new access road east. “So much of what’s going on here could be alleviated with a

BETHEL — A 20-year educator will be at the helm of BethelTate High School in the fall. Principal Susen Arn is retiring and the Bethel-Tate Local Schools Board of Education has hired Keith Hickman as her successor. Hickman, 45, of Anderson Township, currently is principal of Amelia High School in Hickman the West Clermont Local School District. The Bethel-Tate school board awarded Hickman a twoyear contract, effective Aug. 1, which will pay him 97,900 annually. “He brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to our district,” said Melissa Kircher, superintendent of the BethelTate Local Schools. Hickman was assistant principal at Amelia High School before being named principal there eight years ago. Before that he worked in the Valley Local Schools in Lucasville, as principal of the elementary school and as an English teacher at the middle school and the high school. “I have always been very impressed with the Bethel community,” Hickman said. “Bethel reminds me if my hometown of Lucasville, Ohio. “Bethel-Tate students and fans have always shown a lot of poise and respect at athletic contests,” Hickman said. “I am looking forward to meeting staff and students, and I am looking forward to a great

Pierce Twp. rezones land near busy intersection

By Lisa Wakeland

Pierce Township is making a push to expand its business district along Ohio Pike. Trustees unanimously approved combining business and residential zones into a new mixed-use planned unit development at the intersection of state Route 125 with White Oak and Lewis roads. Clermont County plans to sell its former water department property near that intersection to Pierce Township, a possibility that’s been discuss-

ed for years. “The critical component is the right of way needs to be preserved to allow for the possibility of other road improvements,” Township Administrator Tim Hershner said during a May 13 public hearing. “Existing zoning remains in place, and the new zoning is not applied or enforced until the property owners sign off on it. It could take decades for properties to come under new zoning.” Plans for the site show a new road that would eventually extend across the water depart-

ment property to Appomatox Drive and another access road behind the Penn Station on Ohio Pike. The new road would eventually cut off access state Route 125, which township officials have said would make the intersection safer. The site includes 35 parcels – a mix of single-family homes and businesses – on about 23 acres. As properties redevelop, the current homes could become offices or other similar businesses to create a transition to the residences, Hershner said.

Take a hike on the Milford GeoTrail By Jeanne Houck

MILFORD — It’s a treasure hunt tricked out with smart phones and handheld GPS devices. It’s an interactive game that rolls smoothly between technology and outdoor adventure. It’s called “geocaching,” and you can play for free in Milford through Sept. 30. The city has put together a new “Milford GeoTrail” with a website (www.MilfordGeoTrail. com) where people can get information about the hunt and sign up to participate. Along the way, Milford officials hope players will get to know the city and be impressed with what it has to offer. When you take a trip on

seek to locate hidden containers, called ‘caches,’ using their smart phone or (global-positioning system navigating units),” said Pam Holbrook, assistant Milford city manager. “A geotrail like the one Milford has created is a series of caches, usually including some type of ‘passport’ to fill out (with a code word associated with each cache). “Participants who complete their passport by visiting all stops and recording a code word are eligible for a special commemorative geocoin,” Holbrook said.

The West Clermont Local School District will offer virtual lab courses this summer. The courses will be offered through a virtual lab at Glen Este High School. “It’s a good opportunity (for) the students to continue getting credits and stay on course toward getting their diplomas,” said Leslie Spangler, a virtual academy teacher at the school. Brian Wallace, virtual school coordinator, said the virtual lab courses will be taken through an online program called Apex. “Each lesson covers all of the core curriculum,” he said, adding that the online program includes quizzes, unit tests and an exam the students must pass to get credit for the course. Courses will be offered in a variety of sub-

ject areas ranging from mathematics to science. The summer program, Walker which is for grades nine through 12, is three weeks and will be from June 9 to June 27. Glen Este High School Principal Bob Walker said the virtual lab has a number of advantages. “You can cover more disciplines with fewer staff,” he said. “It’s cost effective.” The district, which has been cutting costs in recent years, had eliminated a number of programs. A summer school had not been offered for several years. “This helps credit-deficient students get back on the correct track increasing their chances of graduating,” said Walker. Virtual lab courses

have been offered throughout the school year, but this is the first time the district has incorporated them into a summer program. “I’m excited about it,” said Wallace, adding that he is anxious to see how many students take ad-

vantage of the program. The cost per course is $200. The courses will be offered at the high school. Interested students should contact their counselor or visit the website

had asked state officials for a traffic signal more than a decade ago, but her request was denied. “Nothing is making sense to me, but it is what it is,” Valentine said of the township plans. “If we’re sandwiched be-

tween the traffic, it will kill property values.” If the access road extended east, which Hershner said could take 10 to 15 years, Valentine said it would help to add curb cuts, so the handful of houses had access to

their properties from Lewis Road and did not have to travel down Ohio Pike. Want more news from Pierce Twp.? Follow Lisa Wakeland on Twitter, @lisawakeland.

Participants may start anywhere, but the official start is at the 9/11 memorial at the Milford Community Fire Department at 687 U.S. Highway 50.

May is ‘Cooperative Extension Month’

Clermont County Commissioners designate May as Cooperative Extension Month in honor of Ohio State University Extension Clermont County. May marks 100 years of the United States’ Cooperative Extension Service. Congress passed the Smith-Lever Act establishing Extension, a unique educational partnership between the U.S. Department of Agriculture and land-grant universities, on May 8, 1914. The act created the Extension network, including OSU Extension, to bring university-based research and learning opportunities to the public, thanks to the cooperative support of county governments paired with university and federal funding. County Commissioners honored Clermont Extension May 12 during the Board of Commissioners Session in Batavia. Clermont Extension is in Owensville, housed at the Clermont County Fairgrounds. The office offers programming in four areas: agriculture and natural resources, community development; 4-H youth development; and family and consumer sciences. Extension pro-

gramming is based around the needs of the public. For more information, please contact 513-7327070 or visit

Clough Pike work continues

Cider Mill Drive is closed at Clough Pike beginning. Traffic is detoured onto Terrace Drive for approximately three weeks while work to reconstruct Clough Pike continues. Weather permitting, the work on Cider Mill Drive will be completed by Friday, June 6, and both lanes of traffic on Cider Mill Drive will reopen at that time. The work on Cider Mill Drive is part of 1.3-mile widening and improvement project on Clough Pike between Mt. Carmel Tobasco Road and Gleneste-Withamsville Road. The project will add a third travel lane along Clough Pike, a new center turn lane, as well as a sidewalk along the north side of the road. Upgrades will be made to nearby traffic signals, and drainage improvements will also be completed along the project corridor. Clermont County Engineer Pat Manger reiterated the importance of the Clough Pike work and its relationship to other improvement projects taking place throughout the county. “We are making significant investments to improve our infrastructure in Clermont County,” he said.

OOK to Clermont honored 20 junior and seven senior graduates during its annual commencement April 24 at University of Cincinnati Clermont College. LOOK to Clermont is a 4-H youth development program, operated by Ohio State University Extension Clermont County and UC Clermont College, for Clermont high school juniors and seniors. Participants develop personal and team leadership skills, while earning postsecondary enrollment option credit. Each month participants meet for a theme day focusing on topics such as government, history and safety, all with a local emphasis. Additionally, each participant practices leadership skills through project teams designed to better Clermont County. Juniors were divided into three teams, led by senior mentors. Juniors Allison Flanigan (Glen Este), Alex Grooms (New Richmond), Austin Horn (Williamsburg), Kyle Jones (Clermont Northeastern), Devin Lally (Loveland), Dana Little (Williamsburg), Giovanni Ricci (Loveland) and Brittney Williams (Glen Este) along with seniors AJ Cardarelli (Amelia) and Abbi Pritchard (CNE) built a raised garden at Loveland Health Care Nursing and Rehab Center. Dubbing their project “Sky High Gardens,” the team designed the beds, obtained supplies, solicited community donations, sought plant recommendations and installed raised beds at the center. Continuing a LOOK project

which began in 2013, a group completed the renovation of East Fork State Park’s mini golf course in the campground. Juniors Hayden Dennison (Goshen), Spencer Dorhout (Milford), Nathan Francis (CNE), Elena McDonald (Amelia) and Elliott Stockton (Amelia) with seniors Bailey Schultz (Batavia), Joseph Francis (CNE) and Cory Woodruff (Milford) removed outdated all-weather carpeting, laid new resin and carpeting, and replanted flowerbeds. The final group designed a smartphone workshop for the public. Juniors Victoria Banks (Bethel-Tate), Shannon Carwell (CNE), Gabrielle Cook (Felicity-Franklin), Audrey Feiler (New Richmond), Mikayla Hamilton (Felicity-Franklin), Haley Kilgore (Batavia) and Taylor Newcomb (Batavia) with seniors Nathan Brinson (CNE) and Jessica Pelfrey (Batavia) promoted tech literacy. LOOK advisors Margaret Jenkins and Kelly Royalty of Clermont Extension led the 2013-2014 class with Glenda Neff of UC Clermont. Clermont Extension is a nonformal education branch of OSU. The office merges needs of local citizens with OSU’s research through four focus areas: Family & Consumer Sciences, 4-H Youth Development, Agriculture & Natural Resources and Community Development.

Rocket baseball takes family approach to success By Mark D. Motz

MT. WASHINGTON — Sister Sledge sang about it. The Pittsburgh Pirates adopted it. The McNicholas High School baseball team lives it now. Some 35 years after Willie Stargell and Pirates made “We Are Family” a baseball anthem, the McNick team is chock full of second-generation Rockets, many of whose fathers once played with head coach John Christmann. Christmann - a 1985 McNick grad - is a second generation Rocket himself; his mom is long-time school nurse Mary Anne Christmann, class of 1956. He enjoys the family atmosphere on his team. “It means a lot to me as a coach,” he said. “It’s easier to talk to the parents when they already know me, when they know what I’m about. It’s always good to have that kind of support from your baseball families.” Among the players, sopho-

more Ryan Byrne’s dad Bobby Byrne was Christmann’s classmate and teammate in baseball and football. Likewise sophomore pitcher Sam Browning’s dad is Mike Browning (’86). Sophomore pitcher Chris Clark is the son of 1984 grads Mike Clark and the former Linda Dulle. Senior Will Mehring, junior Logan Jacobs and sophomore Will Vogelgesang also have McNick grads for parents. All have played key roles for the 2014 McNick team. Byrne is the everyday catcher. Browning leads the squad and is second in the Greater Catholic League Coed with an 0.86 earned-run average. Clark has 11 strikeouts in eight innings of relief work while picking up a pair of saves. Mehring hits .375 and is tied for the team lead with 16 runs batted in. Vogelgesang hits .344 and owns a team-best 12 stolen bases. Jacobs has become a reliable clutch hitter and aggressive base runner. He drove in

the tying run when the Rockets trailed Hughes 1-0 in the fourth inning during the opening round of the Division II sectional tournament May 13. He doubled in the go-ahead run his next time up in the sixth. He came home with an insurance run on Mehring’s hit in a 3-1 Rockets victory. “Your main thought is to sit back on the ball and hit line drives,” Jacobs said. “Only good things can happen when you hit line drives.”

Jacobs started playing ball at age 6 and hit his first legitimate over-the-fence home run as a sixth-grader at Tealtown Park. He said he’s always loved the game. “I can’t even describe it,” he said. “It’s just fun. It’s a good place to escape. You don’t have to worry about any drama, just go out and play and have fun. I like to take opportunities (on the bases) when they’re there. I like to make those extra plays to get my teammates fired up.”

Recorder’s office best place to get documents A recent increase in calls regarding the cost for obtaining a “certified” copy of a property owners deed made me aware of a property deed scheme occurring in Clermont County. National Deed Service, Registered Property Services and other companies are sending residents letters, offering to get them certified copies of their property deeds. In most cases, a property owner already has a copy of their deed, provided at closing when they purchased their property. The deed is a public record and is available at the Recorder’s

Office. These companies are privately held companies, not attached to any government agency. They may have stated the importance of having a certified copy of the deed to your property or quoted the U.S Government Federal Citizens Information Center website. These services also quote a hefty price of $60, $80 and more to obtain a copy of your deed for you. Although this may not be illegal, you will be paying a significantly higher amount for a record than you would pay by requesting a copy from the recorder’s office

yourself. As your county recorder, I would like to let you know the real cost of getting a certified copy of your deed, mortgage or other recorded documents. It is $2 per page and $1 to apply the certification stamp and seal. The staff of the recorder’s office can do this while you wait. You walk in and walk right out with a certified copy of your document. The average deed is three pages, the total cost of a certified copy would be $7. You will save all the time and hassle of filling out forms, mailing them in and waiting for the delivery of your certi-


I know by the time you read this, Mother’s Day will be long gone, and I also realize that I realize that not everyone has had the privilege of a loving home, a godly home. We want to honor those who have ladies who have given their all, their life, to raising their children, grandchildren, and in some cases, they have been the caregivers of other people’s children. That’s who we want to talk about today, “The Other Mothers.” There is no greater privilege and responsibility bestowed by God upon anyone than that of being a wife and a mother. No one has a more profound and enduring influence upon those around her in the home either negatively or positively, whether she realizes it or not, than that of the “role” of the mother. A man by the name of William Ross Wallace gave the most vivid description of the importance of a godly mother when he wrote: “The hand that rocks the cradle is the hand that rules the world.” But today the world has tried to down play the importance of the role of

mother and just look at the devastating results. While it is important to give our children a secular educaBen Hurst tion, nothing can compare COMMUNITY PRESS GUEST to the love COLUMNIST and nurturing of a godly mother’s influence in the home…nothing. In the beginning chapters of Exodus a new king came into power in Egypt, and the Bible says that he knew not Joseph, and he caused the servitude of the Israelite to be severe as the Israelites began to out-number the Egyptians, causing great fear to come upon the king. Consequently, the new king decides to kill all the male children, but the love and cleverness of Moses’ mother (God’s intervention), saved Moses, who went on to be one of the greatest men in the Bible. This story tells how the daughter of Pharaoh found Moses in the river, and had compassion on him, and took

the baby home and raised him as her own. Now she was “not” the birth mother, but she nurtured him and invested her life into caring for him. In addition, God in His sovereignty even allowed Moses’ mother to come and be nurse to her own child, and was paid for her services. Don’t tell me God doesn’t bless those who are obedient. However, many women wanted to have children, but could not. Instead, these women invested their love and life into someone else’s children. Then there are the “other mothers” who have already raised her own children, yet because of their great love have become the “other mother” for many. Some folk have become foster parents, and some have adopted children into their family...loved them as their own, as God has done to us. Adoption, what a great illustration of God’s love. I hope you had a happy Mother’s Day. Ben Hurst is the pastor @ Northside Baptist Church in Bethel.

“I do not envy today’s graduates due to the decreasing job market in the US. So many jobs have been moved abroad and robots and computers have replaced many others. Plus the competition is tougher than ever and many talented people are underemployed. “College is not the automatic job qualifier it was many years ago and it is also very pricey. For those graduating high school they should be sure that college is what they really want to do at this time. “A 2-4 year stint in the armed forces could add some maturing and finances for college or end up being that career after all.

provided in 2012. Actually, one of the very first ways I was introduced to Clermont Cindy Jenkins Senior SerGramke vices was COMMUNITY PRESS because of the GUEST COLUMNIST volunteer programs. When my daughter, Staci, was about 2 years old, my mother began taking her when she delivered meals-on-wheels in the Amelia area. In fact, they “worked” as volunteers more than a year before I came to “real” work for the agency in 1983. The life lessons in caring and compassion that Staci gained through that experience with my mom played a tremendous role in making her the amazing woman she is today. And, it is also the reason that many young mothers and fathers volunteer. They want to expose their children to a way of giving back and doing good for others.

Each year in April, the nation celebrates National Volunteer Week as a way of acknowledging and thanking those people who do extraordinary things through service to others. This recognition was established in 1974 and focuses on the impact and power of volunteerism as a fundamental aspect of civic engagement and one of the most significant factors in what is great about America. The impact of volunteerism is far-reaching. For Clermont Senior Services, a not-forprofit organization, it means that we are able to serve many more people with many more services. For the citizens of this community who responsibly and honorably support the levy that provides for services for seniors in Clermont County, it is a way that this organization can leverage the funds of taxpayers through those who give so generously of their time, energy and talent. In 2013, 306 volunteers contributed 23,693 hours of their time to support the services Clermont Senior Services provides. I look at the number of individual volunteers and the number of hours of service they provided, and I’m absolutely amazed. Better yet, the good news, and I’m always looking for the good news, is that this was actually an increase over the 22,118 hours

“Without question the thing that bothers me most about other drivers is not maintaining assured clear distance ahead (tailgating). I was taught to maintain a distance of one car length for each 10 mph, adding at least an additional length or more for slippery pavement. Not too many folks follow that rule. It’s not surprising that there are so many rear end collisions. It drives me crazy when someone is following so close that I can’t see their headlights or grill in my rearview mirror. Folks forget that if you land in someone’s trunk, you will probably be the one to get the ticket!”

Rita Heikenfeld's broccoli cauliflower salad is picnic perfect. THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD

Rita shares salads for the picnic season

Sandy’s broccoli cauliflower salad with tangy yogurt dressing. My neighbor, Sandy Shelton, brought a dish of this over. Oh my gosh, it was so good. It’s a yummy salad with the tanginess of the dressing offset by the sweetness of the grapes. Wouldn’t this be a nice take-along for a Memorial Day picnic? Now if you want my traditional buffet broccoli salad with a Marzetti like dressing, check out my website It’s a keeper, too.


6-8 slices bacon, cooked and diced 1/2 head each: cauliflower and broccoli, cut into small florets 2 cups seedless red grapes, halved, or more to taste - I used more 1/3 cup diced red onion, or more to taste 1/2 cup chopped pecans, or more to taste 1 small English cucumber, diced (you may not need all) Shredded cheddar cheese.


If your cauliflower and broccoli are real large, double the dressing - you may not need all of it but it’s good on slaw,

too. Whisk together: 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt 1/2 cup real mayonnaise 1/3 cup red wine vinegar 1 tablespoon sugar 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme Salt and pepper to taste Pour dressing over salad ingredients and enjoy.

Corn bread salad

A really weird name, I admit, but one that’s requested by my readers a lot this time of year. Don’t be put off by the long list of ingredients. It’s easy to make. Oh, and did I mention, most folks come back for seconds - it’s that good. 1 package 8-1/2 ounces corn bread/muffin mix 1 can, four ounces chopped green chilies, undrained - mild or spicy 1 teaspoon cumin 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano 1 cup each: mayonnaise and sour cream 1 envelope ranch salad dressing mix 2 cans, 15 ounces each Great Northern beans, drained or a combo of your favorite; 3 cups corn; three good sized tomatoes, chopped; 1 bell pepper, chopped; 1 bunch green onions, chopped, white and green part both 1 pound bacon, cooked and crumbled 3 generous cups shredded cheddar cheese. Prepare corn bread according to package directions, stirring in chilies, cumin and oregano. Pour into sprayed 8-inch pan. Bake at 400 for 20 minutes or until done. Cool. Combine mayonnaise, sour cream and dressing mix; set aside. Crumble half the cornbread into a 9x13 casserole. Layer with half of the rest of the ingredients and repeat layers, ending with cheese. Cover and refrigerate for two hours or more. Serves 10-12. Rita Nader Heikenfeld is an herbalist, educator, Jungle Jim’s Eastgate culinary professional and author.

We usually start Memorial Day out with my family, going to Mass at St. Philomena church in Clermont County. The church is a beautiful small church, built in the 1830s. The Mass is held outdoors, weather permitting. Afterwards, there’s a gun salute to the fallen veterRita ans and the Heikenfeld parishioners serve RITA’S KITCHEN everyone breakfast. We visit my parents’ graves there and put vases of fresh flowers on them. The grandkids help me plant sprigs of my heirloom mint around the graves, as well. It’s a meaningful tradition. I know many of you celebrate Memorial Day this way, whether remembering a fallen veteran, family or friends. Memorial Day is the official day for picnic season, too, and these recipes are some of my all time favorites.

Clogged gutters, sweet rhubarb part of a busy week We had a meeting at the Owensville Historical Society last week, then went to the nursing George home to see Rooks my brother, OLE FISHERMAN Herb. He has been in the home since our sister in law, Inez, had a stroke and then passed away. We sure miss the company and fine meals she prepared. We loved her dearly. Now today, we go to the Senior Citizens, over at the Lodge, at the Senior Center, on James Sauls Drive, and talk for a while to the folks. We enjoy the time we spend with them and the stories they tell me about their animals. Some have parrots that talk, that is interesting. There are some that don’t want Ruth Ann and me to leave, I always talk to most of them and always go around and shake each hand. This day we go they seem to really enjoy the stories, I tell and try to ask questions of them, on how it was when they were young, and what they did for play. Some of the stories are so interesting, it makes you realize how a person can drum up activites to entertain themselves, back in the early years, of their lives. We were working in the garden the other day, and when we were coming in to eat the noon meal, I said for Ruth Ann to come out on the porch, to see a big black snake that was almost three feet long. It was sure pretty and clean, so I encouraged it to go on over to the tree and get away from the porch. It got close to a patch of flowers and went into hide. They are God’s Creatures, so we don’t harm them, we noticed last fall, we had a

snake in our carpenter shop, we have had one in a few years ago, too. The garden is doing good, we have tomato plants, cucumbers, squash, lettuce, (three kinds), potatoes, carrots, peppers, spinach, broccoli, peas and cabbage. The asparagus is starting to do good. The strawberries are blooming good, we hope we can keep the wild turkeys from flying in and eating the berries, like they did last year. Now on Wednesday, May 21, the Clermont Chapter of the PERI will meet at 11:30 a.m. with a brown bag lunch and a guest speaker from the Clermont County Board of Elections. The meeting will be at the Batavia Township Hall on Clough Pike. Don’t forget on Memorial Day, at the Old Bethel Methodist Church, here in East Fork Park, will be a service before the Legion comes to the cemetery at 11 a.m. The program at the church will begin at 10 a.m., so come and enjoy. We need more members to help us keep this old church going. It is on the National Registry of Historical Buildings, so we need to keep it in good repair, and the memories of our ancestors who attended there, and are buried in that cemetery. The maternal grandparents of President U.S. Grant, are buried there. There will be services at different cemeteries, so go and honor the service people that have given their lives for our protection. 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. He served for 28 years, the last five as manager of East Fork State Park.

Howdy folks; Last week we needed to clean the gutters of the house. We have a big maple tree, close to the house, so the seeds had filled the eve trough. When it rained last week the water ran over the sides of the gutter. The hole where the drain pipe is, was blocked up. When I get on the ladder, Ruth Ann is holding it for me, so I got them cleaned. Our rhubarb is some of the best we have ever had, so Ruth Ann asked if I would pull some, so she and I went and pulled some. She made a pie and took it to the auction 360 for the Grange bake sale, and Bill bought it. He said that was the best pie, and I think he would maybe like another one. Now Chester has a plan. Each morning he starts meowing so we let him outside, for a while, he doesn’t come in when we call him. If I get the lawnmower out, he will make a bee line to the house. That is his protection, so when the neighbor lady starts to mow, here he comes. Ruth Ann likes to crochet on an afghan, so the spool of yarn is laying on the couch or floor. Well, Chester likes to grab the yarn and run with it. The other evening he ran into the next room. Ruth Ann said, to me, “Go get it,” so while I was laughing I caught Chester, and he looked at me like ‘What Is Wrong!” The other morning we weighed him and he weighs eight pounds, he will be a big cat, when we are away and we come home, he is so excited, he runs through the house. We like to sleep a little later sometimes, but each morning Chester wants his breakfast, early, then starts begging to go outside. It is amazing how they train us.

Scan/fax stations available at libraries Scan/fax stations are now available at three Clermont County Public Libraries: Goshen, Union Township and Bethel. Library patrons have been asking for this service for years, said Jim George, information services manager for the libraries. Staff members had to point people to other businesses in the past. “This is now a service we can provide,” George said. “Patrons can scan/ fax any kind of document.” The cost is 10 cents per scan in either black and white or color. To print the scanned document, pricing is the same as the public workstations: 10 cents for black and white copies and 30 cents for color. The cost to fax one document is $1 and 50 cents for each additional page. Cash is required to use the stations, George said.

Patrons can scan items to their cloud accounts, a USB flash drive, Google Docs, email, smartphone or tablet, he said. Or, they can fax documents. George expects the remaining seven libraries to offer the scan/fax service soon. A decision will be made once library officials determine the equipment is durable enough and see how much patrons use the service. This service will cost the library nothing, he said, since the fees are paid to the company that owns and maintains the equipment. The equipment has a touch screen and is userfriendly, George said. Patrons will have no limit on the amount of scans they can make. Plus, the stations provide lots of room to spread out the materials to be scanned and a chair for those who want

to sit. Garria Blundell, branch manager at Union Township, said the installer had not left the library when a patron stepped up to be the first user April 29. The patron needed to scan and fax school records to a college admissions office. “We get a lot of requests for this service,” Blundell said. “It is probably one of the most frequently asked questions.” The equipment is “very user-friendly,” she said. “Everything functions the same way. So if you want to scan something to email, USB or fax, all the functions are the same.” For more information, call the Union Township Branch at 752-1744, Goshen Branch at 722-1221 or Bethel Branch at 7342619.

strokes, and other health crises; and loneliness from the breakdown of family relationships. This event is one of many initiatives this church and others have undertaken through the Southeastern Ecumenical Ministry.


On Friday, April 25, the Mount Washington Presbyterian Church hosted a “Mobile Food Pantry” that distributed 10,000 pounds of food to 148 families in need. Church officials estimate that the benefit will reach more than 500 individuals. Clients of the SEM and Batavia Food Pantries are invited by letter to share in this event, which happens four times a year. More than 40 MWPC volunteers worked all morning setting up 15 tables; unpacking pallets of canned goods, cereal, onions, potatoes, apples, meat, peanut butter, pasta, and bread; assisting clients with selecting items and then loading the groceries into their cars.
