BECAUSE COMMUNITY MATTERS
Kappel says goodbye to Grant By Roxanna Swift firstname.lastname@example.org
BETHEL — After 15 years as principal of Grant Career Center, Ken Kappel is retiring. Kappel came to Grant in 1998, after serving as assistant principal, then principal at Bethel-Tate High School. “He’s really been great to work with because he is supportive of both the kids and the staff,” said Pam McKinney, public relations director at Grant. Although he had a background in administration when he came to Grant, Kappel started out as an elementary, middle and high school band director in Jacksonville, Fla. He moved to Cincinnati after being accepted into a master’s degree program at the University of CincinnatiCollege Conservatory of Music.
After earning a master’s degree in trombone performance, Kappel played professionally as a freelance musician, at times touring with Broadway and Ringling Bros. shows. He eventually returned to his role as band director, this time in the Hamilton school district. While there, he earned his administrative certification from Xavier University. With a background putting together big musical shows, becoming an administrator was an easy transition, Kappel said. In 1996, he left Hamilton for the assistant principal’s position at Bethel-Tate High School. When he accepted the principal’s position at Grant two years later, he was not discouraged by the change of pace involved in running a career center. “At Hamilton High School, they have a job development

center on their campus,” Kappel said. “Many of the students who I taught were also in the career development portion of the building, so I was kind of accustomed to vocational education.” One thing that set Grant apart from other schools was the low turnover in staff from year to year, he said. “For many years, I opened the school in August with exactly the same staff that I had when I closed it in May,” Kappel said. “It was surprising to come into a building where there were no changes from the end of one school year to the beginning of another.” Like many staff members, Kappel has remained dedicated to the school, said Superinten-
dent Ken Morrison. “I believe he has been a very loyal colleague,” Morrison said. The staff retention rate lent itself to a family atmosphere, which is the primary thing that kept him at Grant so long, Kappel said. “It’s a family here,” he said. “You stay here because of the relationships you build with the people.” As Kappel prepares to leave the family he has come to know at Grant, he is refocusing on his actual family. He expects to spend much of his time helping his mother and father, who are 88 and 90, respectively. He also plans to exercise, catch up on reading and travel with his wife. Kappel’s retirement goes into effect June 30. Williamsburg High School Principal Barry Daulton will succeed him.

Algae bloom found at East Fork State Park By Keith BieryGolick
WILLIAMSBURG — The Ohio Environmental Protection Agency issued a recreational public health advisory at East Fork lake June 13. The advisory is still in effect, but could be lifted Friday, said John McManus, administrator at the Clermont Soil and Water Conservation District. A blue-green algae bloom in the state park, on 3294 Elk Lick Road in Batavia Township, caused toxin levels at the park’s campground beach to rise to more than four times the acceptable level last week. “There are all sorts of algae blooms - some are harmful, some are not,” McManussaid. “This one is producing a toxin called microcystin.”
The EPA issued the lowest level of advisory, which warns the elderly, children and individuals with compromised immune systems to avoid the campground beach. The toxin was identified in 88 parts per billion of water samples at the park’s campground beach, McManus said. The highest advisory level requires the toxin to be found in 20 parts per billion, he said. But samples taken June 19 indicate the toxin level has gone down to 1.3 parts per billion, McManus said. Toxin was detected at the main beach, and although it never exceeded advisory limits, it has gone down as well, he said. “The bottom line is microsystin levels are way down,” McManus said. “According to state protocol that advisory sign will be posted for at least an-

other week, but they’ll test again this week.” McManus said he was “pleasantly surprised” by the change, but didn’t know why it happened. “Blue-green algae blooms are really poorly understood - we’re not sure exactly what triggers them,” he said. “As long as the microcystin toxins are present, (the EPA) will sample once a week until they go two weeks in a row
without finding any toxins.” Warning signs have been posted on the beach, but residents who swam there recently shouldn’t panic, he said. “If they’re feeling ill, they should go to a doctor,” McManus said. “But if they’re feeling fine, then there shouldn’t be any worries.” Something that would cause concern is if toxins
Wenstrup votes to protect life
The U.S. House of Representatives passed H.R. 1797, the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, June 18. U.S. Rep. Brad Wenstrup, a co-sponsor of the bill, voted to support the legislation. “I firmly believe that all human life is sacred
and that life begins at conception,” Wenstrup said. “I have always and will always stand to protect the lives of the unborn. The disturbing details that recently came to light surrounding abortion clinics like Kermit Gosnell’s and his crimes highlight the

infected the county’s drinking water. But no toxins have been discovered at the Bob McEwen Water Treatment Plant in Batavia, said Mark Day, assistant director for the Clermont County Water Resources Department. “All of the samples that have been collected and analyzed to this point have been no-detect,” Day said. “None of the toxin has been present.” Officials will sample the drinking water every other day until toxin levels at the beaches go down, he
said. Even if microcystin made it to the treatment plant, Day said officials would still be able to keep it from contaminating drinking water. “We’re fortunate that the water plant is equipped with multiple barriers to prevent (contamination). The plant is filled with the latest and greatest technology,” he said. “Not only do we have the hardware to monitor (the toxin), but we have some of the country’s best people.” McManus said samples of the drinking water have continued to come back toxin-free. The park will be tested Wednesday and the results will be made available Friday on the Clermont Soil and Water Conservation District’s Facebook page, he said.
need to take action to prevent future atrocities.” Kermit Gosnell, a Philadelphia abortion doctor, was convicted of three counts of murder, one count of involuntary manslaughter and various lesser counts. His abortion clinic was described as a “House of Horrors” by his staff at trial. “This bill takes steps to protect some of society’s most vulnerable: Pregnant mothers and the unborn,” Wenstrup said. “It would prevent ending the life of unborn children that are capable of feeling pain past 20 weeks of gestation. I am proud to be a co-sponsor of H.R. 1797, and hope that the Senate takes up this important bill to further protect life.”

It took 50 years to bring it back to Clermont County. Roberts is a local historian and currently vicepresident of Historic New Richmond, Inc.

Reds surprise in Batavia By Keith BieryGolick email@example.com
Those attending a four-week, youth baseball camp in Batavia got a surprise when Reds outfielder Derrick Robinson showed up June 17. Robinson pitched to children of all ages, challenged one group to a race and spoke to everyone during lunch. “It’s always a good feeling to put smiles on kids’ faces,” he said. “You always remember when you were younger and you looked up to the guys that played pro sports. So it’s always an honor to come back and put smiles on their faces.” Austin Moore, a sixth-grader from Bethel, said trying to get a hit off of Robinson was his favorite part of the camp so far. “It was cool,” said Quintyn Gordon, a second-grader from Batavia. “I can’t hit, but I’m trying to. When I hit it I’ll be good.”
The Reds Rookie Success League, hosted by the Reds Community Fund, started June 10 and continues to July 2. Officials hope kids leave with a love of the game, an understanding of fundamentals and a strong sense of character. “They get to learn all the fundamentals,” said Cortnei Weaver, outreach coordinator for the Reds Community Fund, in a previous interview. “But instead of doing it like a coach would set up drills, we teach them characterbuilding traits and how those apply to the game.” For Robinson, it was a chance to let the kids know he’s been in their position and he’s really not too much different from them. “Just because we’re playing a professional sport don’t mean we’re not human anymore,” he said. “We have fun just like they have fun.” For a video from the surprise visit, see http://cin.ci/14kxEAI.

Illness couldn’t keep Taylor down for long
Sky’s the limit for multi-sport Tiger talent

By Scott Springer
BETHEL — The fact she was even able to make the Division II regional track meet is significant. Diagnosed with anemia during the Bethel-Tate girls basketball season, senior Taylor Atkins has had several setbacks during her 2013 prep career. Her successes during this time, among other things, led to cincinnati.com readers voting her as the 2013 Bethel Journal Sportswoman of the Year. It began while playing for coach Dave Fallis. A three-year contributor on the hardwood, her senior season was cut short due to injury. “It was the hardest season for me because I sprained my ankle three times,” Atkins said. “That’s when I found out I was anemic. I couldn’t play my last four games.” Atkins is still battling the ailment that shut her down for a month and caused her to miss the first track meet of the season. Her hemoglobin levels are still low and doctor appointments continue. In addition to the high jump, Taylor Atkins was an accomplished 200-meter runner. The anemia and an Achilles issue limited her to leaping this spring. “We decided about mid-season to stop running because of her injury,” Bethel-Tate girls track coach Meggie Bierken said. “She did some proactive things like getting some therapy.” Her efforts still garnered her second-team honors in the Southern Buckeye Conference-American Division. Though she couldn’t match the 5’2” height she cleared as a junior in the district meet, she was able to clear 5’ in the district meet at New Richmond to make the regionals in Dayton again. Finishing fifth at 5’1” a year ago, Atkins could only clear 4’8” this spring for 14th place as the disappointment continued. “I think I could’ve (gone) to state this year if I had been healthy,” Atkins said. At Capital University, she hopes to run and jump again given a clean bill of health. A multi-sport athlete at BethelTate, there’s an outside chance of also playing soccer for the Crusaders. Fortunately, her career at the institution in the Columbus suburb of Bexley will not be dependent on her running or jumping. “She got a fantastic scholarship basically on her grades,” father Junior Atkins said. “She had a 4.7 something and was seventh in the class. She’s going to study criminology.” Bierken knows the competitive athletic spirit doesn’t disappear easy. “She’s one of those kids that is very dedicated and understands her limits,” Bierken said. “If she doesn’t perform

Person you’d like to be stuck in an elevator with: Spiderman
well, she doesn’t want to be told, ‘good job’. She comes to the meet with an expectation and she doesn’t settle for less than that.” That nature has been enhanced by having a talented twin brother, Tyler. Their father, Junior, considers his family blessed. “They’ve always got a playing partner,” Junior Atkins said. “They’ve always had that equal. I tell you what, they are so close.” Seven minutes to be exact. Taylor Atkins is the oldest of the pair, though she’ll admit that doesn’t always command respect from her 420-second younger twin. “No, because he’s bigger than me and that’s all that matters to him,” Atkins said. However, the twins did play several years of Knothole baseball and she once earned the respect at a certain Hall of Famer’s camp. “We both went to a Barry Larkin baseball camp and I was the only girl there,” Atkins said. “They picked a MVP and they picked me over him. He was a little jealous over that.” She eventually switched to fast-pitch softball, but her double duties brought her double play days at shortstop to a halt. While her Bethel career didn’t end as she would’ve liked, her work ethic was noted. “That’s what the younger girls see,” Bierken said. “She works hard all the time.”
BETHEL — Tyler Atkins appears to be the quieter of the twins who have graced the Bethel-Tate courts and fields for the past four seasons. While sister Taylor gives longer answers and is “socially talkative” on Twitter, Tyler appears to let his play speak for itself. Readers of cincinnati.com nominated and voted him as the 2013 Bethel Journal Sportsman of the Year. His best sport is baseball which he started playing with his sister in Knothole years ago. He recently finished his senior season for coach Jeff Dennis as a first team Southern Buckeye Conference-American Division performer. “It was good,” Atkins said of the 13-12 spring. “We should have won a few more games though.” The Tigers’ starting shortstop led the team with a .539 average. He drove in 22 runs from his lead-off position and stole 21 bases. In 2012, he hit .584. “Last season was probably the best,” he said. “I didn’t get as many steals this year as I did last year. We had more players. We lost some good seniors.” Tyler Atkin’s 2013 highlight came in a win over Cincinnati Hills League power Madeira at the Midland Complex April 13. The Tigers won 7-5 and Atkins took no backseat to Andrew Benintendi, the Mustangs’ top player is heading to the SEC and Arkansas. “I had eight putouts at short,” Atkins recalled. “I think I went 3-3 with a triple and two doubles. It was probably my best game. My last at-bat they intentionally walked me.” This summer, Atkins is playing for his father, Junior, for the18U Flash team in Hamersville. Bethel-Tate teammates Russell Hartley and Nick Marshall are also on the squad. Hartley will join Atkins at UC Clermont where he expects to play shortstop or outfield.

Like many at Bethel-Tate, Atkins wore Tiger uniforms fall, winter and spring. He gave up cross-country running as an eighth-grader after setting a school record and settled on soccer in the fall. As a striker, he recorded a hat trick against Clermont Northeastern this season. “He was outstanding,” soccer coach Dave Schellenberger said. “He was involved with a lot of sports his senior year. We fell from second place to fourth, so he didn’t get recognized the way he should have.” Based on his kicking abilities, football coach Bill Jenike brought Atkins to the gridiron. A few extra points left him bored, so he convinced the coach to put him in for a few plays. “I started as just the kicker,” Atkins said. “They ended up putting me at free safety and then wide receiver. It was a lot of fun.” Added father Junior Atkins, “He played football in first grade and loved it, but the coach had three hour practices every day and it sort of burned him out. He didn’t play again ‘til his senior year. Jenike did a great job bringing him on to the football team.” While he missed his only three-pointer as a kicker, Atkins could hit a few on the basketball court. A three-year guard for the Tigers, he finished his senior season averaging 14.1 points per game and 3.7 assists. “The first game of the season against Ripley, I had 26 points,” Atkins said. As he heads to UC Clermont, Atkins plans to study aviation and be a pilot. Having navigated the soccer, football, baseball fields and basketball lanes for Bethel-Tate, the clouds are next. “I’ve been out to Sporty’s, the Clermont airport,” Atkins said. “I’m probably going to try to get my private license this summer before I go into school. That’s what I hope to do, get a job with Delta or someone like that.” The Atkins twins turn 19 on Sept. 24. Tyler will celebrate his birthday at 12:47 a.m., some seven minutes after Taylor awakens him to remind him she’s older. As the saying goes, “the sky’s the limit.” For winning Sportsman of the Year, Tyler Atkins will be a guest of the Cincinnati Reds at an upcoming game.

In Mr. Myers’s editorial he states, “the so called ‘right to work’ (or SCRTW) is a referenda between choosing to work in a unionized business or agency, or being stripped of workplace rights that protect people and further freedom.” This is blatantly false. It does nothing of the sort. It only allows employees to decide on their own (choice, which liberals want in other cases but not this one?) whether to join a union or not. It also does not keep unions from representing the employees of the company nor does it keep the union from collecting dues to support their agendas. It also does not strip workers rights of protection. We have the OSHA for any workplace issues that may come up. There should never be an issue of well-being due to the many agencies of the federal government that govern workplace rights. Robert Dollenmeyer Milford
Cemetery a mess
Memorial Day 2013 was a weekend to visit the graves of our family and friends who have passed on. My parents and other family members are buried at Greenmound in New Richmond. Needless to say, I was speechless to see the grass had not been cut on this special weekend. It is a sad say when private citizens have to load up their lawn mowers and cut grass on their plots. But that is what they did so their graves would look nice. Tall grass can also be a hazard to older people who could trip and fall. I visited three other local cemeteries and Laurel was beautiful. So why does Green Mound look so terrible? I heard other negative remarks about the grass. I hope this is a wake up call to New Richmond and council. you can do better and the people deserve better.

Try civil discourse
Like past efforts, Leonard Harding’s column would normally just make me laugh, but as he said, one can’t let such invective go unanswered. There is no doubt about his political leanings, but his vituperation is unbelievable. When you write like a buffoon you aren’t taken seriously. Benghazi was a disaster. Four Americans died because we made no effort to save them, we had a “surveillance aircraft” there in 70 minutes and teams in Crete 90 minutes away. But no one made the call – was it 3 a.m.? The President was quick to show us photos of himself sitting watching the Osama attack unfold, but we have seen no photos of the Situation Room during this seven-hour debacle, I guess it did not help with the election narrative. There are acknowledged reports that only four Tea Party groups were approved in the two years from 2010 till 2012, rather than denigrate these people, Mr. Harding should be ashamed that they were singled out – but of course that does not fit his leftist narrative either. I like people to write columns, it shows they are concerned, but in future instead of being snarky, let’s try to have a civil discourse. Stan Shadwell Pierce Township

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
The difference between Hepatitis A, B and C Hepatitis A made headlines recently when it was reported that 30 people were infected by frozen berries they bought at Costco. This brings up the question what is hepatitis and what is the difference between Hepatitis A, B and C? Hepatitis is inflammation of the liver. It is not always caused by viruses. Drinking alcohol can cause it as do other genetic diseases and medication overdoses. Jaundice is a symptom of hepatitis, but doesn’t always mean the person with the yellow skin has an infection. We most often see jaundice in newborns. Their jaundice usually goes away in a few days. There are several viruses that can cause hepatitis. It is
caused by unsanitary conditions when water sources or foods are contaminated. This can be caused when Oded Zmora COMMUNITY PRESS a person who has Hepatitis GUEST COLUMNIST A doesn’t wash his hands appropriately and handles food. The disease usually runs its course and most patients recover. In the past most people were infected when they were children, but since the development of water treatment this disease has become uncommon in the western world. There is a vaccine for this virus and we offer it to children starting at 1 year of
age. If you’ve never had the vaccine, check if you can have it given to you, especially if you’re planning traveling to Third World countries. Hepatitis B and C viruses are transmitted through exposure to blood. This can happen when someone uses IV drugs (even once), has a tattoo with a needle or ink that has been used before, having multiple sexual partners, sharing a toothbrush or razor with a person carrying the virus or having a needle stick injury (this is mainly a risk for doctors and nurses). The Hepatitis B and C viruses are not passed by shaking hands or hugging. We have an immunization for Hepatitis B. It is given in the hospital before a baby is discharged home and at 2 and
6 months of age. Since this program started, the rate of Hepatitis B has dropped dramatically. Unfortunately, we don’t have an immunization for Hepatitis C, and this virus is the most common cause of chronic hepatitis in the U.S. The treatment given to try to rid the body of the Hepatitis C virus is long and hard, and not always successful. The CDC recently recommended all people born between 1945 and 1965 be checked for Hepatitis C infection, as this group has a relatively high rate of infection with the virus. Feel free to discuss these issues with your family physician. Oded Zmora lives in Pierce Township and is a doctor at Bethel Regional Healthcare.
How to make cleaning with kids fun School’s out for summer! This typically makes half of the household happy and half of the household harried. Why should mom and dad be left with all the chores? Enlisting your kids to help with the house cleaning not only takes some of the pressure off, it can help build some important life skills while giving you fun family time. Houses don’t clean themselves At least that’s what my mother always told me when I was a boy. Kids of all ages can have a role in keeping the house ship shape. » Cleaning kits/buckets. Personalize some inexpensive buckets for your kids. Fill them with the cleaning essentials. Make a project out of decorating the buckets with paint pens, stickers, etc., prior to cleaning day. » Today’s technology. As with most things, if you make it fun or make it a game, your kids will respond. There’s even an app for that. In ChoreMonster, parents assign chores to their kids, along with a set number of points to be earned when a specific chore is completed. Children
can redeem earned points for fun rewards such as ice cream, a new video game or a trip to the zoo. Derek Kids must Christian manage their COMMUNITY PRESS chores and GUEST COLUMNIST keep track of their own points, all the while earning interactive monsters they play with and learn from. » Turn up the tunes! Let everyone in the family choose a song for your cleaning soundtrack. Music will inspire you and will help keep your workers motivated. My mom used to always play the Fleetwood Mac “Rumors” album when we cleaned and to this day when I hear it I want to start cleaning something. » Keep the clock. Keep the cleaning to a manageable amount of time. Set a goal to see how much you can get done as a family – in one hour. A few words of caution: » Assign age appropriate tasks. » Be mindful of chemicals
around young children. Make sure your kids are old enough to understand how to properly spray and clean with any cleaning solutions. As a rule, window cleaner is generally safest and bathroom cleaners contain the harshest chemicals. » Make your own all-purpose cleaner with a bottle of water and a few drops of dish soap. It’s basically the same formula that bubbles are made from and is safe for counters and wall touch ups. Try not to get it on the floor – slippery when wet! » Dusting seems like the easiest chore for little ones, but dusting around breakables could lead to disaster. Choose simple bookshelves or toy shelves. » Check your expectations. The way your child cleans may not be perfect, or as you would do it, but be open and use positive reinforcement to foster a willingness to clean again! Finally, a little reward never hurt. Cap off a great day of work with a family night out. Here’s to a summer of fun – and a relatively clean house

CH@TROOM June 19 question What is your reaction to the Supreme Court ruling that says police can take your DNA when you are arrested for serious and violent crimes?
“Although this may be appealed and reversed later by the Supreme Court, it sounds acceptable to me. The idea, I suppose, is that other crimes might be solved if DNA of an individual can be used to place him/her at a crime scene or be used against the individual as a suspect in these serious and violent crimes. “It is probably another example of the government trying to crack down on terrorism in the long run, not trying to take away rights of individuals; if you accept that the government acts paternalistically in your best interest, it shouldn’t bother you.”

crimes. If that were to happen, I would hope that the police would take my DNA. “At the same time, I would hope that they would be prevented from saving it in a permanent data base if I was exhonorated, and no other crossreferences indicated other serious and criminal culpability.”

They can be smeared with dirt or spray painted on the underside and can totally obscure the letters numbers. The offense is obvious but if you look you will see many vehicles with these covers, with people using them to make identification of their vehicles difficult. I have no idea why law enforcement officials allow these and not site the operators for the obvious violation and make the operator remove them on the spot or have the vehicle impounded. The proliferation of these covers makes it appear that law enforcement doesn’t care whether they can identify vehicles so why worry about the display of front plates? Save the metal, save the money and maybe consider getting rid of the rear plate, too. I have to believe that a vehicle that has no visible license plate should be much more of a concern than one that has no front plate!”

Celebrate summer with tomato appetizer, preserves
Maggie’s cheesy artichoke and tomato triangles From Maggie Hoerst, who our grandchildren fondly call “Dez.” Maggie brought this to grandson Luke’s birthday party, and everyone kept coming back for seconds and thirds. It was delicious even at room temperature, so would be great appetizer to tote to that Fourth of July picnic. Yes, that holiday will be here before you know it! 16 oz. refrigerated crescent rolls 16 oz. cream cheese, softened Zest of 1 lemon
Rita shares her Aunt Margaret’s recipe for tomato preserves with a touch of lemon. THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD. 2 eggs 1 clove garlic, minced 14 oz. can artichoke hearts in water, drained and finely chopped 1 cup Parmesan cheese, divided 2 plum tomatoes, sliced 2 tablespoons fresh parsley 1 ⁄2 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Unroll crescent rolls, press the seams to fit 9-inch by 13-inch or jellyroll pan, and press the rolls up the sides just a bit if you can. Bake 10-12 min or until light golden brown. Remove from oven, let cool. Mix cream cheese, zest lemon, eggs, garlic, artichokes and 1⁄2 cup Parmesan cheese. Spread over crust, and then arrange
tomato slices over filling. Combine 1⁄2 cup cheese, parsley and black pepper in small bowl and sprinkle evenly over filling. Bake 25-30 min or until light golden brown and set. Cool 10 minutes, cut into 12 squares and cut each square in half diagonally. Makes about 24 appetizers.
Aunt Margaret’s classic tomato preserves I may have hit upon something unique here. After I published the classic strawberry jam recipe, I received several inquiries about other classic/put-up preserves and jams, so I will be sharing those heirloom recipes as we go into
summer. One request was from Lana, a Florence reader who said “My grandma made tomato preserves with a lemon wedge in every jar. There was no cinnamon, just sugar, lemon and tomatoes. No one seems to have a recipe for it.” Well, guess what, Lana. I do and it’s from my sweet Aunt Margaret, who we call our second mom. Aunt Margaret makes tomato preserves like Lana’s grandmom. Aunt Margaret goes to taste on most things, but I did nail down this recipe with her last year when she gifted me with a jar. 11⁄2 quarts peeled, small yellow or red tomatoes (about 2 pounds or so) 4 cups sugar 1 thinly sliced lemon 3 ⁄4 cup water
To peel tomatoes: Cut an “x” into the bottom end, plunge into boiling water for a minute or so, then when you see the “x” curling at the edges, take the tomatoes out and, when cool enough to handle, pull the skin off with a knife, using the “x” as a tag. Combine
sugar, lemon and water and simmer gently for 10 minutes. Add tomatoes and cook gently until tomatoes become transparent, stirring frequently to prevent sticking. Remove from heat. Cover and let stand 12-18 hours in a cool place. Remove tomatoes and lemon from syrup. Boil syrup 2-3 minutes or longer to thicken. Return tomatoes and lemon to syrup; boil one minute. Remove from heat. Skim foam if necessary. Ladle hot preserves into hot jars, leaving 1⁄4 inch head space. Wipe rims with clean wet cloth. Adjust caps. Process 20 minutes in boiling water canner. Makes about 3 pints.

Bath Tub? E... BEFOR
Tip from Aunt Margaret’s kitchen
If you like, add 1 tablespoon mixed pickling spices and 1⁄2-inch piece fresh gingerroot tied in cheesecloth or in a tea ball and add with the sugar, lemon and water. Remove after you let the preserves stand in cool place. Or add a piece of cinnamon stick to each jar before sealing. You can use green tomatoes if you like.

I opened my freezer yesterday and had to laugh. Nestled among the organic mango slices, edamame, homemade baby food and hibiscus mint syrup were a giant box of storebought Popsicles in every Rita shade of Heikenfeld the rainRITA’S KITCHEN bow, three Kit Kat candy bars and five Baby Ruths. Well, I guess that’s called balance.

Reds Community Fund. WLWT joined the Reds and St. Vincent de Paul in sponsoring the drive, which collected 15,600 pounds of food. “We are tremendously grateful to The Reds, WLWT and Reds’ fans for supporting this year’s drive. Many hungry families will have food this summer because of them,” said Liz Carter, executive director of St. Vincent de Paul-Cincinnati.

Ole Fisherman is now a member of the ‘Zipper Club’ Good Lord, we will make it. We have talked to several folks that have had open heart George surgery. Rooks Now they OLE FISHERMAN tell me I have joined the Zipper Club. Our children have been good to stand by us and help. Bobby and Debby made sure Ruth Ann had a way to the hospital each day and between them and Ralph and Pauline they had a way home for her. The amount of cards I have received has surprised me and we thank everyone. God
bless all of you folks. Now before I went to the hospital, we put baby spinach and broccoli in the freezer. We will need to plant more spinach and broccoli for this fall. Now while I was in Anderson Hospital, Ruth Ann picked a pint of black raspberries and a gallon bucket of peas, so we put them in the freezer for winter. The garden looks pretty good. We spent a lot of time working the garden since I will not be able to work in it for a while. The job is turned over to Ruth Ann. When she had her surgeries I took care of her, now it is her turn to take care of me. Ruth Ann and I look after each other. We feel
that is the way it should be after 54 years of marriage. The folks are telling me the fishing is good. Hopefully, we will get to do some fishing in a month or so. Each day I hope to get better. There will be plenty of work outside for me when I do got well. Our garden is
doing good. We have made plans for this time to keep the garden looking good. But, this article will be a little shorter than usual. We hope each of you have a healthy life. The Clermont Senior Services have completed their seventh housing development. The board
and staff are to be congratulated on this achievement. Start your week by going to the house of worship of your choice. God bless all. More later.

Howdy folks, Here is the rest of the story as to why there was no article last week. The Ole Fisherman started feeling a little poorly, so we went to our doctor. He did an E.K.G. and said the blood flow was not right for the heart. So he referred us to Dr. Joel Forman. He is in the old Kroger building in Anderson Township. He then sent us to Christ Hospital for an angiogram. This was done. The results was I had four clogged arteries to the heart. They could not fix it with stints. I had noticed that when I would walk, I had slowed down. So the date for the surgery was set for June 6. We had to be there at 5:30 a.m. They did the four bypasses and the operation was doing good. I was in the hospital for a week. I got home on Thursday, June 13, then on Sunday morning I had to go to the emergency room at Anderson Mercy and get fluid off my body. I kept the nurses busy emptying the urinals overnight. They were so helpful and so nice. Along about 10 a.m. on Monday morning, the doctor came in and said, after asking some questions, I could go home. By golly with the Lasix, I sure keep the bathroom busy. We know what to do for the fluid, so we have to weigh me every day, and make sure I don’t gain two or three pounds in a days time. This has been a very severe event in my life. By the help of the doctors, Ruth Ann and the

Two sent to prison for theft, traffic fatalities
Two Anderson Township men are serving prison sentences for theft and subsequent chase that lead to the death of two Union Township women. The men were stealing to feed drug addictions, said Clermont County Assistant Prosecutor Kevin Miles. On July 29, 2012, Ron-
ald Godfrey, 34, 7859 Bilby Road, Anderson Township, and Jeffrey Moore, 42, 7864 Anchor Road, Anderson Township, stole a Penske Rental Truck from Queen City Storage, 530 Clough Pike, said Scott C. O’Reilly, Clermont County assistant prosecuting attorney, in a press release. The men
make life easier.
traveled in the stolen truck to 125 Storage, 1958 Ohio Pike in Amelia, where they removed a 14foot trailer and attached it to the stolen Penske truck. At about 6:40 p.m. July 29, 2012, Moore and Godfrey entered Cahall Brothers, Inc., 1845 Ohio Pike in Pierce Township, and stole a John Deere utility vehicle. Neighbors of the business confronted Moore and Godfrey, suspecting suspicious activity, O’Reilly said. Once they were confronted, Godfrey jumped into the driver’s side of the stolen truck, Moore entered the passenger side and both fled the scene. An alert
Both Godfrey and Moore were captured a short time later, and indicated to law enforcement that a third individual “Mike” was the driver, O’Reilly said. DNA evidence, witnesses at the scene and an ultimate confession by Moore refuted this claim. The case was handled by Clermont County Assistant Prosecutor Kevin Miles and O’Reilly. On Feb. 22, Godfrey entered a plea of guilty to two counts of involuntary manslaughter, felonies of the first degree, one count of failure to comply with order or signal of police officer, a felony of the
third degree, one count of obstructing justice, a felony of the third degree, and two counts of grand theft of a motor vehicle, felonies of the fourth degree, O’Reilly said. Godfrey was sentenced the same day by Clermont County Court of Common Pleas Judge Thomas R. Herman to prison for 30 years. On March 29, Moore entered pleas of guilty to two counts of involuntary manslaughter, felonies of the first degree, and one count of obstructing justice, a felony of the third degree, O’Reilly said. Moore was sentenced June 3 by Herman to prison for 30.5 years.

was issued through Clermont County for the stolen truck. Union Township Police Officer Brian Taylor spotted the truck and pursued, O’Reilly said. The defendants fled at a high rate of speed north on Interstate-275 ultimately exiting onto westbound Ohio 32. The pair ignored all the traffic signals along the way, which culminated in ignoring a red light at Bells Lane, and striking a van driven by Corean Hutcherson and Betty Hines, both of Bells Lane in Union Township, killing the pair instantly. They were coming home from church.
