Long-time Goshen fire department member takes


By Cindy Schroeder


nearly half a century, Goshen Township resident Daniel “Danny” Fagin was a regular fixture at the local firehouse. His father, Francis “Smoke” Fagin, was a founding member of Goshen’s volunteer fire department and later served as its chief. So it was only natural that Danny, who grew up less than a block away, began hanging out at the firehouse at age 14, loading hoses and other equipment onto the department’s fire trucks. During the next 46 1/2 years, he would rise through the ranks, eventually serving as a second-generation fire chief, friends and family said. “Fire service was in his blood,” said Stonelick Township Volunteer firefighter/EMT Virgil Murphy, who joined Goshen’s fire department in 1967 as a volunteer under Chief Daniel Fagin. “Even today, you can mention Dan Fagin’s name in the community, and people know who he is.” As word of Fagin’s death spread through Goshen Township May 20, his fellow firefighters began organizing a final tribute to the dedicated public servant. Three days later,100 firefighters from five departments sounded a last call for Fagin at Goshen Cemetery. Before the final tones sounded, the veteran firefighter took one last ride on a retired fire

truck that was dedicated in memory of his father several years ago. At Goshen Cemetery, the firetruck bearing Fagin’s casket passed under crossed ladders from two aerial ladder trucks. “He followed in his father’s footsteps,” said Steve Pegram, the current chief of Goshen Fire & EMS. “He was a dedicated man, very loyal to his community.” Fagin’s daughter, Debra Fagin,agreed. “My dad’s life revolved around the fire service,” she said. “He believed wholeheartedly in providing the best possible service to his community.” As chief, Danny Fagin “was always out to better the department,” Murphy said. Fagin fought to get the best equipment and fire trucks, and he was one of the driving forces behind getting a new firehouse built in the early 1980s. Fagin served as president of Goshen Township Fire Department Inc. until his retirement in

1997 when the township took over fire and EMS service. But he never really went away. “The firehouse was the only place you ever saw him,” said former Goshen Township Trustee Jim Allen. He said the trustees honored Fagin as a Citizen of the Year in the 1990s. After his wife died in 2005, Fagin became an avid golfer. The retired fire chief also was a regular at the Frisch’s restaurant in Mt. Repose, where employees had coffee waiting each

morning for the man known as “Grandpa.” The 77-year-old Fagin also was a veteran of the U.S. Air Force and a member of the local Masonic Lodge. Besides Debra L. Fagin, he also leaves behind daughters, Patricia Elliott and Donna King; a son, Daniel G. Fagin; five grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren.

BETHEL — Certified results from Clermont County’s May 6 primary show a narrowly-approved levy to help pay for Bethel’s 911 emergency communications passed. Unofficial totals had Bethel’s 1-mill police levy passing by one vote, or 84 in favor and 83 against. However, after two provisional ballots were counted, that changed to 86 for and 83 against, said Judy Miller, director of the Clermont County Board of Elections. Results of the May 6 primary were certified May 27. “We’re happy that the levy prevailed,” said Bill Gilpin, Bethel’s fiscal officer. “We weren’t assuming anything. What this means to the village is that the revenue (from the levy) will now come very close to covering our actual charges for our 911 bill (from Clermont County).” In recent years, Bethel had collected about $12,000 a year from its police communications levy that voters approved in 1984, Gilpin said. The village currently pays Clermont County $31,573 a year for 911 calls, or $10.10 a call, he said. In the past, the difference between Bethel’s police communications levy revenues and its 911 bill from the county had been covered by a 2.9-mill police levy that’s set to expire in 2015. The new levy will generate $31,233 a year, which will cover practically all of its 911 bill. The difference will come from Bethel’s general fund, Gilpin said. “That’s good news,” Bethel Mayor Alan Ausman said, after learning the levy results were official. “This was something that we had to pay as a village and keep current on. It’s good to see that the people realized the need for this.” Collections from Bethel’s levy approved on May 6 will be for the 2014 tax year. Gilpin said that means the village will start collecting those revenues in February 2015. The Clermont County Board of Elections counted the two provisional votes on May 19, but didn’t officially release the final count until May 27, when election results were 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 someone votes provisional is because they forgot to bring

TV reporter Elaine Green kept her cool as hostage By John Kiesewetter

TV reporter Elaine Green’s professionalism and empathy earned her a prestigious Peabody Award for her 1980 interview at gunpoint while being held hostage in the WCPO-TV newsroom. It also saved the lives of all nine hostages by letting heavily armed gunman James Hoskins vent his frustrations, said John Ehrhart, her Channel 9 photographer that night. Green, 73, a BethelTate High School graduate and owner of the Video Features production company and widow of Channel 9 anchorman Al Schottelkotte, died May 5 after complications from surgery. “I didn’t think we would survive it,” said Ehrhart, news director at KCWY-TV in Casper, Wyoming. Green and Ehrhart were returning from a story at 2 a.m. on Oct. 15, 1980, when they were approached by Hoskins in the old Channel 9 parking lot, at Fifth Street and Central Avenue, Downtown. Hoskins, 41, of Overthe-Rhine, was carrying a semi-automatic rifle, four guns and 600 rounds of ammunition. He demanded to be taken inside the station, where he held nine staffers at gunpoint for 90 minutes before releasing all unharmed. When Hoskins demanded to go live on TV, Green suggested talking on videotape. The 14-minute interview won a George Foster Peabody

Award. “In a calm voice, she got him to tell his story and express his views,” said Channel 9 reporter Tom McKee, also a hostage that night. During the interview, Hoskins confessed that he had killed his girlfriend, Melanie Finlay, 30, in their apartment before coming to the station. “I shot her. She’s dead. I’m a dead man,” he said. “That stunned us all, but Elaine kept her professionalism on display. That’s how she was as a reporter and in business – calm, composed, organized and thorough,” said McKee, who worked at Video Features before returning to Channel 9. Later that day, Green told The Enquirer: “I thought about my two children and wondered if I’d ever see them again.” Her daughter, Tracy Corrigan of Athens, remembers getting a call as

a 12-year-old at 4 a.m. from her mother, who said: “Tracy, I’m at the police station, and I’ve had a gun stuck in my face for hours.” “We all survived because nobody did anything stupid. Everybody stayed calm and nobody panicked,” Green told The Enquirer in 2005 on the 25th anniversary of the incident. “I still get chills. It’s a terrifying thing. You don’t know what you’re going to say or do that might set him off.” The TV station remained under siege for nearly 12 hours. At dawn, viewers watching Channel 9, the city’s No. 1 news station, saw Schottelkotte broadcasting from the parking lot using Dayton’s WHIO-TV mobile truck. Police entered the building at 1:45 p.m. and confirmed that Hoskins shot himself to death in the newsroom.

Green, a Bethel native and 1958 Bethel-Tate High School graduate, had no journalism training when hired by Schottelkotte in 1969, her daughter said. Green had recently divorced and returned here from Cleveland, where she had done modeling on the “Mike Douglas Show,” she said. “Al hired her to do fashion reporting for Channel 9, but she never did that. Al taught her to become a reporter. She was very intelligent and learned things quickly,” her daughter said. Green left Channel 9 in 1983 to open Video Features. She was married to Schottelkotte from 1988 until his death in 1996. Robert Parish of Portland, Oregon, hired by Green in 1986, described her as “tenacious, driven, assertive ... a brilliant writer and excellent oncamera talent.” They collaborated for more than 25 years on video projects, including a series on ballroom dancing, one of her favorite activities. Green also liked to travel, play golf and tennis, ride her horse Lance near her Lawenceburg home and fuss over her dog named Bear. “She would often bring Bear to the office. Only dog I’ve ever seen wearing a diaper,” Parish said. In addition to her daughter, Green is survived by a son, David Green of Loveland, and four grandchildren.

identification when they went to the polls, Miller said. According to the Clermont County auditor’s office, Bethel’s 1-mill levy will cost the owners of a home with a market value of $50,000 at least $17 more per year. Owners of a $100,000 home will pay an additional $35 per year, and those owning a home with a market value of $150,000 will pay an extra $52.50 per year. Check official results

When two Troy, Ohio, canoeists went missing on the Ohio River earlier this month, they broke three key safety rules, a local water safety expert said. The bodies of the young men were found after a search involving about eight agencies that ultimately spanned 10 days. “You need to wear life jackets, dress for the air temperature, not the water temperature, and have a float plan,” said Matthew Kruse, law enforcement specialist with the Ohio Division of Natural Resources division of watercraft. The tragedy involving the two canoeists happened May 3, but authorities weren’t notified until early morning the next day. “When they went missing, a little over six hours passed before authorities were notified,” Kruse said. “With a float plan, if you’re going out on the water, you tell somebody where you’re going and when you plan to be back.” If there’s no one to leave your information with, the Ohio Department of Natural Resources has a float plan template on its website that anyone who’s going to be on the water boating or fishing can fill out and leave on their vehicle’s windshield at the dock. The plan should include the name of the trip leader, the number of passengers and their names and phone numbers, a description of

the boat, towing vehicle and trailer, information on when and where you’re leaving from and anticipated stops, any communication equipment or signal devices on board and an emergency contact if you don’t return. Dressing properly for the weather also is important, Kruse said. “The water temperature when (the two canoeists) went in was about 60 degrees, and the air temperature was 70 something,” he said. “Cold water is anything under 70 (degrees). You need to dress for the water temperature, not the air tem-

perature. A lot of people make that mistake.” Also, the deeper the water, the colder it is. Kruse said the two canoeists who were the subject of the recent search were wearing a T-shirt and a tank top. Finally, the two canoeists didn’t take any life jackets out on the water. “We tell boaters, ‘Always wear life jackets, especially this time of year when the water temperature’s a lot colder than the air temperature,” Kruse said.

Lung honored as UC Clermont’s ‘Distinguished Alumnus’ for 2014

SpliceNet President James Gast, UC Clermont Associate Professor Page Beetem and SpliceNet Vice President David Myers sporting Google Glass technology. PROVIDED

UC Clermont paralegal students tap into Google Glass technology

“Curiouser and curiouser” – taken from “Through the Looking-Glass” novel published in 1871, seems a fitting quote today for Google Glass. UC Clermont’s Paralegal Technology Program has teamed up with SpliceNet – a longstanding Cincinnati based leader in legal technology consulting – in a research project to explore uses for Google Glass by the legal community. Google Glass is a wearable computer with an optical headmounted display. Google Glass displays information in a smartphone-like hands-free format. “UC Clermont’s Paralegal Technology Program is committed to teaching students job ready skills for the law office. This involves not only procedural and substantive law, but also technology,” said Page Beetem, associate professor of legal studies. When looking into the Google Glass Explorer Program, Beetem realized the untapped potential of such technology in the legal field. So she set out to get a pair of the Glasses and get her paralegal students real life experience with them. In comes SpliceNet, owned by UC alums David Myers and James Gast. SpliceNet has long been a supporter of the UC Cler-

mont Paralegal Program. SpliceNet helped sponsor the purchase of a pair of Google Glasses. As part of the research project, UC Clermont students will have the opportunity to use Google Glasses and develop ways that the Glasses can be used to the benefit of the legal community. SpliceNet will have the benefit of those ideas to share with their customers. SpliceNet customers will also be able to use the Google Glass themselves to explore how they might use them. How will the glasses be used? “The opportunities are endless. Imagine live streaming video to your expert in California, while you depose the opposing expert in Cincinnati. Your expert has a first person point of view, and can feed you questions. It is like having your expert there, without the expense” said Beetem, who has 15 years legal experience. “With Glass, personal injury attorneys will be able to give jurors a firsthand perspective of the daily struggles that their injured clients go through.” As Google Glass becomes more socially acceptable they have amazing trial implications as well from jury selection to presentation of evidence. Students will be working

with SpliceNet to share innovative ideas to be shared with the legal community. “Google Glass has the potential to change certain aspects of the practice of law. We’re excited to see the innovative ways UC students and our customers use them. We think the potential is so strong that SpliceNet invested in an additional two pair of Google Glass for a round table forum and Loaner program” said Gast, president of SpliceNet Inc. and legal tech guru. Myers, vice president of SpliceNet Inc., attorney, legal tech and cloud expert, said creative thoughts are already coming quickly. These UC Clermont students are the future of the legal profession. Armed with technology like Google Glass, and a healthy dose of imagination, they will create a sea change in the field. I am extremely excited to collaborate with this cutting-edge program.” To learn more about the project or to be involved in the Google Glass Round Table, contact Gast at or 513252-0212.

UC Clermont College honored Ruth Lung as the 2014 Distinguished Alumnus at the college’s Commencement Celebration. The Distinguished Alumnus Award is bestowed upon an individual who has distinguished themselves through significant professional accomplishment, made contributions to their community and attended UC Clermont College for at least one year. “UC Clermont uniquely provided me a flexible learning environment. I believe that my start here was the foundation for the rest of my career,” Lung said. “My belief in the importance of having a strong community has motivated me to stay actively involved in the leadership of numerous civic and nonprofit programs in the community. My life has been enriched by the friendships and accomplishments made by our neighbors as we collectively work to better our hometowns, our communities, our world,” she added. Lung earned her associates degree in 1991 from UC Clermont and her bachelor’s degree in marketing from the University of Cincinnati’s Evening College in 1996. Lung is the marketing relationship manager for Siemens PLM Software, where she heads up developing and facilitating strategic marketing partnerships with sport's most successful motorsports teams including NASCAR's Hendrick Motorsports, Joe Gibbs Racing, Roush Fenway Racing, Chip Ganassi Racing, IndyCar Racing, Andretti Autosport and IMSA TUDOR United SportsCar Series, Wayne

Taylor Racing. While these organizations bring their own unique assets to the race track weekly, they each possess a high degree of professionalism depending on discipline, a strong work ethic, integrity, and teamwork to maintain their winning traditions. A lifelong local resident, she was raised in a farming family, where she learned the importance of teamwork and discipline at an early age. Having to juggle family and work while earning her college degrees over ten and a half years – she learned the value of perseverance. “Not only is Ruth a distinguished Clermont College alum but she continuously demonstrates her passion for the local community where she was raised. Today we salute her accomplishments, ” Dean Gregory S. Sojka said. Tom Rocklin, her Siemens colleague, stated in his nomination of Lung – “she has often stated her career and community involvement would not have been possible without getting her start at Clermont College.” Some of Lung’s community involvement includes: President, Williamsburg High School Alumni Association, co-chaired passage of Williamsburg School Levy Renewal 2009 & 2013, Committee Member, Operation Restoration, Board of Directors, Community Savings Bank, Bethel, received Clermont County Chamber Salute to Leaders Award winner, Committee Member, Williamsburg Gala Fundraiser Events and Selection Committee Member Williamsburg High School Academic Hall of Fame.

Felicity-Franklin softball returns to regionals By Scott Springer

TIPP CITY — Rebounding from an eight-loss season a year ago, FelicityFranklin High School’s girls softball team made yet another regional tournament appearance under coach Rob Wear May 29. Playing with just nine healthy girls, the Lady Cardinals earned a date in the regional semifinals with Minster by defeating Fort Loramie 6-3 May 23 in a back and forth contest for a district title. In Tipp City, the back and forth was brief. Felicity-Franklin struck first as sophomore Rachel McConnell doubled in two runs in their opening atbat. Unfortunately, the lead would last only until the third inning. Minster plated seven runs on five hits against junior Sandy Woodmansee and the Lady Cardinals and took the lead for good at 7-2. The lead would be 10-2 by the fifth inning. Felicity-Franklin scratched a few more runs in, but ran out of frames, coming up short 11-6. “They’re a quality team,” Wear said. “They had eight seniors and went to state last year. We gave up seven runs. They were hitting everything in the gap.” In the loss, McConnell was 3-4 and sophomore Brittany Drake was 2-4. Wear’s lone senior, Toni Rodriguez, was injured a month ago, so the team that took the field in the Division IV regional semi could all return next sea-

son. As Felicity-Franklin tried for a late rally, junior McKayla Jacobs was injured scoring what would be the game’s final run. Medical personnel were brought to the field along with an ambulance as the game was delayed around 20 minutes. When play resumed, a McConnell fly out to center field ended FelicityFranklin’s season at 18-3. “If we had won, I’d been sunk,” Wear said of the seventh inning. “I would’ve had to put (freshman) Hannah Auxier in and she’s got a cast on her hand.” Despite the late season lack of roster depth, the Lady Cardinals marched and mashed through tour-

nament wins over New Miami, Cedarville, Fayetteville-Perry and Fort Loramie to reach the regionals for the fifth time in Wear’s six years as coach. “They accomplished so much more than they were supposed to,” Wear said. “We have a ton of heart. We just had one bad inning.” Along with the girls returning, Wear will also have his pitcher Sandy Woodmansee back. In addition to being the team’s top hitter in terms of average, she had an ERA below 1.00 coming into the game against Minster and 156 strikeouts in 113 innings. “Sandy’s done really well,” Wear said. “We

were co-champions in the SBC. We’re the only Division IV team in that league. Everybody’s bigger than us; it’s that simple.” He credits the family atmosphere the girls have on the field with their success. Off the field, the girls in his lineup are often in his heart. Prior to FelicityFranklin’s recent prom, he sent his team a group text. His request was that if they got themselves into an uncomfortable situation, they should call him. Without question, the head coach would fire up his truck and bring any one of them home safely. “Thank God I didn’t get any calls,” Wear said. “That’s what they mean to

me. I treat them like my own.” That treatment also includes watching them fall asleep on long bus rides to tournament games and arranging an escort to guide them into their small hometown after their notable accomplishments. For Wear and the Lady Cardinals, there are more

rides to come, more games to play and more trophies to display. If the popular business saying “less is more” is true, Felicity-Franklin’s softball program is loaded. “They believe in me, brother, and I believe in them,” Wear said.

Bethel-Tate girls make regional run FAIRBORN — A strong finish led coach Matt Weber’s BethelTate girls softball team to a Division III district title and a trip to Wright State to face Richwood North Union May 28. Unfortunately, a strong first inning by North Union set the tone as lead-off hitter Emily Clark belted a home run to left and pitcher/cleanup hitter Mason Jamison doubled in two runs. By frame’s end, BethelTate was down 4-0 and never recovered, losing 10-1. “We made some errors and left some pitches across the plate,” Weber said. “We’re used to painting the corners and we just weren’t getting it. That was pretty much the game from then on. We’re just not ready to match up with a team like that yet. Hopefully, next year we’ll do a little bit better.” Bethel-Tate had a sluggish start to their season at 2-6, but then finished10-8 after a 4-0 win over Amelia. The Lady Tigers then reeled off tournament wins against St. Bernard, Cincinnati Christian, Finneytown and Waynesville to make the regional semifinal date in Fairborn.

Social climate is much deadlier than guns For proper assessment of my input, I would first like to introduce myself. I’m a retired Social Service administrator and long-term health advocate, among other things. I was organizer and vice president of the International Coalition for Patient Rights for a time, as well as Security Officer with high Homeland Security clearance, which I still hold. By God’s Grace, He kept me from falling into the trap of cigarettes, alcohol, drugs and many other detrimental enslavements of life. At age 18 I chose to be a conscientious objector. Yet, today, I’m writing about a social climate in our land which is much deadlier than guns. Anyone who doubts that

need only check the life and statistics in Kennesaw, Georgia. Any adult resident who lives in that city is required, by Viktoria law, to own a McCulley COMMUNITY PRESS gun. There, the statistics of GUEST COLUMNIST the city validate that when people are instructed in gun safety and proper use of such weapons, every other life-endangering statistic is down: murder, rape, robberies, etc. Pre-judging people in our mind through the skewed “colored glasses” we ourselves wear – as well as what our culture reinforces through

media-brainwashing, public opinions, technologies, even private gossip, glances and actions, is far deadlier than guns! Just ask the homeless! ■ In Ireland, Germany, France and other countries, beer and wine with meals is part of their culture. Before water purification systems existed, travelers carried and drank flasks of wine. Even Jesus! Throughout history alcohol was often used for medicinal purposes. Today it’s less expensive than many RX drugs. In fact, in God’s Word, King Lemuel was instructed by his mother: “Give strong drink unto him that is ready to perish, and wine unto those that be

Keeping our seniors safe in their homes Simple, everyday things like slippery rugs, cluttered hallways and dark stairways can be dangerous for seniors age 65 or more living at home. Equally simple solutions – removing throw rugs, adding lighting – makes the difference in helping seniors continue to live in their homes as they age, rather than moving on to assisted living facilities. May is Older Americans Month, when the nation celebrates and recognizes older Americans for their contributions and gives them information to help them stay healthy and active. All year long, we at Whole Home Modifications, a service of People Working Cooperatively, provide the experience and expertise to handle any modifications projects that’ll help seniors continue living where they’d like – at home. This year, we’re focusing on injury prevention with the theme, “Safe Today. Healthy Tomorrow.” Did you know that older adults are at a much higher risk of unintentional injury and even death than the rest of the population? These unintentional injuries result in at least 6 million medically treated injuries and more than 30,000 deaths every year. Caregivers can help prevent these injuries by taking a walk through a senior’s

home and looking for potentially hazardous situations and taking action to correct them. Jere Potential McIntyre modifications COMMUNITY PRESS include: GUEST COLUMNIST Stairways » Make sure all handrails are not broken and are securely fastened. » Both sides of the steps should have handrails. Floors and rugs » If floors are hardwood, tile, or laminate, invest in non-slip hard sole shoes. » Make sure all throw rugs are removed. Bathroom » Remove soap build-up in tub or shower on a regular basis to keep tubs from getting slippery. » Have grab bars mounted not only at the toilet, but in the bath and shower on walls with secure reinforcements, to prevent the bars from coming loose. Many attractive options are now available. » Remove bathroom floor mats or ensure there is a non-slip pad under them. » Add adhesive strips to bathtub and shower floors. Kitchen » Items that you use frequently, such as dishes and food items should be easy to reach.

» If you have to use a step stool, make sure that it is the kind that has a bar at the top to hold on to. Lighting » Place nightlights or motion activated lights in hallways, bedrooms, bathrooms and stairways. » Install light switches at the top and bottom of stairs. Outside your home » Consider adding ramps or handrails for safe entry and egress. At Whole Home Modifications we know that today seniors want to stay in their homes longer, with fewer than 5 percent living in nursing homes. But to do so, barriers that can be major challenges for people with decreased mobility and ability need to be removed to ensure their safety. By taking action and implementing some of these recommendations, or by working with a professional modifications team of certified aging in place specialists, you’ll not only be making their homes safer, you’ll be giving yourself peace of mind. You can learn more about home modifications and even sign up for a free assessment with one of our certified experts by visiting Jere McIntyre is director of modifications for mobility, People Working Cooperatively.

of heavy hearts…” Proverbs 31:6 Appropriate amounts is the key! Many who used to live in plush homes and snubbed people on “food stamps” have now been able to better understand how lack of jobs, health reversals, etc. impact lives. With fluctuating statistics we have approximately 131,000 homeless veterans in Ohio. Many older, ill and homeless vets have died devalued in “the gutters” of our land. These are now being replaced by much younger ones with families – a 24 percent increase – who now live in tents, under bridges, etc. The total number of ill, disabled, displaced homeless is currently closer to 3.5 million. Homeless people don’t look the greatest. Don’t meet our

“standard” for being worthy of esteem. And we treat them so. We don’t bother to “walk in their shoes” or even speak with them to learn of their circumstances. ■ That legitimately ill individuals with cancer, sever chronic pains, genetically racing minds, glaucoma, seizures, etc., are denied the use of marijuana is of such criminality that God Himself is not going to hold our nation guiltless for our “special interest” laws. The greed of our man-made medical systems will indeed be judged by Him! Hopefully, some will give this thoughtful attention. Viktoria McCulley is a resident of Goshen.

How hard will you try? Abraham Lincoln said “all men are created equal.” What he meant was that there is no room for slavery or prejudice in our society. What he failed to state is that equality is a fallacy because the incentive to achieve is not the same among everyone. He should have said that he came from humble beginnings and overcame many obstacles to achieve legal success and to become our president. Perhaps the best. My purpose is not to deride this idea, but to examine it. We are born under many circumstances, some very favorable, but most of us have to struggle to achieve even moderate success. I have had a number of successes in my life, but, I can assure you none came without serious thought and struggles. It is quite satisfying to change the life of others by leading them through the battles we all face. Humanity is such that we often gain more from this simple act than from our own successes. As I have mentioned, I have been active in sports, business and teaching at different times. In each activity there was someone there to push me to my limits. Sometimes even negative comments can encourage you. They may be meant with bad intent but an “I’ll show you” attitude will serve you very well. Once you get that idea, don’t lose it. It will serve you very well the rest of your life. You have to keep in mind that sometimes these negative comments are for the purpose of causing you to to show that person that you are better than you are getting credit tor. Never quitting is almost always the best personal attitude. Quitting is your admission of failure. Thomas Edison failed to make an electric light thou-

sands of times. His attitude was that he knew thousands of things that wouldn’t work. Eventually, as we all Edward Levy know, he made COMMUNITY PRESS it work. HuGUEST COLUMNIST manity was greatly benefited by his persistence. You were greatly influenced in your early years by your family, friends, teachers and heroes. It was from them that you either learned how to get ahead or were so intimidated that you felt you were worth very little. My personal trial should give you some encouragement. I was a mediocre competitive swimmer in high school. When I got to college one of my goals was to become a letter winner. The problem was that the swim team was very good. I had the disadvantage not only of my lack of ability, but also I was short and stocky. I tried out anyway. Being the first one at practice and the last to leave not only was noticed, but also led to improvement. I earned respect and awards on time. Even more important, was that the lesson was never forgotten. It served me well ever after. The important point we need to make is that your success in life is very dependent on your willingness to compete. That is where the equality sneaks back in. Equality is an excuse for non-performance. If you are willing to try harder and longer than everyone else you will eventually become whatever you want to be. Edward Levy is a resident of Montgomery.

Become a grill master with these basics Gosh, how time flies. Seems like it was just yesterday when my boys were little and my husband, Frank, answered this way when I asked him what he wanted for Father’s Day. “No presents, just something from the grill and some peace and quiet.” I have to laugh when I recall how Rita the food Heikenfeld was never a RITA’S KITCHEN problem, but the peace and quiet sure was. Dad’s day is a good time to celebrate all the dads in your life, both ones you are related to and those you are not. And if you’re nervous about feeding him a feast from the grill, here are some basics to make you a grill master!

Grilling basics 101:

Clean that grill: A long handled, stiff brush works well. Use it twice: when grate is preheated but before the food goes on and again after you’re done cooking, while it’s still hot. Oiling the grate: Best to do when grill is hot. Make a small pad out of a paper towel and dip it into oil, then rub it with long handled tongs over bars of grate. This also helps clean off debris. If you want to spray, take grate off grill away from the fire. Never spray oil onto grate over the fire. Wood chips: these add distinctive flavors, and should be soaked in water

about 30 minutes before grilling. I like to soak chips in wine and herbs. Just drain them well and wrap in a foil packet. Poke holes in top only and place among the coals or rocks. Have on hand: Thick grill gloves, oven mitts or potholders, apron and towels. Salt it down! A box of coarse salt is a must to have for sprinkling over a grease fire. Don’t know a rub from a mop? Rub: a “dry” marinade – a mixture of dried seasonings rubbed directly onto surface of meat. Adds intense flavor and coating forms a seal. Let rubbed meats stand for 30 minutes before cooking to allow seasonings to penetrate. Mop: this comes from the tool used to dab sauce on barbecued meats. It looks just like a little cotton “mop” on the end and is used instead of a brush. Marinade: meats are put into seasoned liquids, which enhance flavor and tenderize. Marinades moisten surface of meat so it doesn’t dry out over hot coals. Glaze: a thin type of sauce that is usually glossy when brushed on foods, sometimes during the last five minutes of grilling, and the glaze remains glossy after cooking.

Grilled steak with garlic and thyme rub What cut to use? Flat iron is part of the chuck so

Rita Heikenfeld shares grilling tips, a rub and butter for grilled fare. THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD

it has great beefy flavor and is almost as tender as tenderloin. Originally, skirt steak was cut to be used in fajitas and has a bit more fat than the hanger or flank. Flank works well here too. My favorites are flat iron and flank. Serve with a side of grilled thick sliced potatoes. For each steak (1-1/2 pounds approx.) Combine with enough olive oil to make a pasty rub: 2 teaspoons chopped

fresh thyme or 1 teaspoon dried thyme leaves 2 teaspoons garlic 1/2 teaspoon pepper and 1 teaspoon salt For sprinkling on immediately after grilling: Romano cheese and chopped parsley Score steak on both sides. Rub seasoning onto steak on both sides. Let sit about 30 minutes. Place on hot grill and grill until medium rare to medium, turning once. Remove and

sprinkle with cheese. Let rest, tented, 5 minutes or so and slice thinly against grain.

Chipotle butter

Mix together and then roll into a log and place in frig or freezer. This is so delicious on top of a plain grilled steak. 1/2 cup unsalted butter, completely softened Canned chipotle chilies in adobo, stemmed, seeded and minced - to taste

2 tablespoons lime juice Scant teaspoon ground cumin Salt to taste. Rita Nader Heikenfeld is an herbalist, educator, Jungle Jim’s Eastgate culinary professional and author. Find her blog online at Email her at columns@ with “Rita’s kitchen” in the subject line. Call 513-248-7130, ext. 356.

Howdy Folks, May 21 there was a P.E.R.I. meeting. When we got home there was a call about a swarm of honey bees. We went and got a nice bunch of them. I had made a bucket to reach up and get the bees. First I sprayed them with sugar water, then put the bucket with a handle on it up and shook the limb. The bees fell in the bucket, then I put the lid on the

bucket and had a nice bunch. The next morning before I got up, the Good Lord gave George me the Rooks thought of OLE FISHERMAN how to make another small bucket to use for getting the rest of the bees that were

left. I took a gallon ice cream bucket and put several small holes in the bucket for air, then took a ladder and got the rest of the bees and put the lid on it. There were probably 10 or 12 bees left this time. We got four swarms last week. A lady close to the Monroe Elementary School put a swarm in a hive for us. We brought them home and they are

sure doing good. Thanks Mary, you folks are special. My brother Herb died Saturday, May 24, his funeral was Wednesday, May 28. His wife died April 12 after a very serious stroke. We along with their family will miss them both. Herb had worked at Allis Chalmers after being in the service in the World War II. Inez was a homemaker and drove a school bus for Milford Schools and they both had retired quite a while ago. Inez loved to garden, can and freeze food and cook a wonderful meal. Monday the service at the Old Bethel M.E. Church here in the East Fork area was held at 10 a.m. It was a wonderful service with a very good attendance, more than 70 people. The Kinner Express furnished the music. The Cooks’ daughter Sherry singing and playing a harmonica and flute. Her daughters were playing a guitar and a dulcimer. Sherry’s singing was very good. Her girls were good on their instruments too. Of course Grandma and Grandpa were proud of them. Everyone enjoyed the music and always look forward to a young feller named John to sing. He sang “America the Beautiful” and “I Believe.” The Brown and Hannah families furnished fruit, cookies, muffins and drinks for all to enjoy. After this program it would not be so wonderful without the American Legion from Bethel, and the scouts honoring the service people that are buried there. When the feller played taps on the trumpet there were some tears. There were more than 100 people that enjoyed the honoring. After this dedi-

cation the group went down to the beach to honor the ones lost at sea, this is special. Getting the old church ready for the programs and opening the gates for the folks to go into the cemetery is special for Ruth Ann and me. It is so important to keep the old church as it is. It is on the National Register of Historical buildings. We finally got to go fishing last week. We took a friend Paul along. We used minnows. We fished a pond for about two hours and I cleaned 15 bluegills and crappie. Then Ruth Ann fried some to make a fish sandwich before Paul went home. I called Mike at the Boars Head Bait Shop at Afton and he said they are catching lots of stripers, channel catfish and lots of small crappies. Folks are fussing about the small crappies. We need them as they will grow up so next year there will be lots of big crappie. They need to be nine inches long before a person can keep them. About Chester, last Saturday our daughter Pauline, two grandsons Ralph and Curtis, granddaughter-in-law Kayla, and great-grandson Ralphie were here to help Grandpa work on a water pump for the cistern. Little Ralphie and Chester had a wonderful time running and playing together. Chester would get on the back of a chair and paw at Ralphie, he would wave his hands at Chester. It is so special when our family is here so we can love them, Grandma fixed a fine noon meal and everyone enjoyed her cooking. George Rooks is a retired park ranger. Rooks served for 28 years.
