When the Cincinnati Tea Party decided to hold a meeting in Bethel, organizers expected 15 to 20 people to attend. But Bethel residents surprised the group when more than 100 people packed the village’s community center Monday, July 6, for the Cincinnati Tea Party’s first meeting there. The Cincinnati Tea Party is a grassroots, non-partisan group opposed to wasteful government spending, said spokeswoman Sue White. The group chose Bethel as a good community to set up a satellite office in because citizens expressed interest in the group, said Chris Littleton, director of community groups. “The Cincinnati Tea Party has decided that one of the most important things we can do is to actually start getting people in local communities talking about MARY DANNEMILLER/STAFF the things we feel are important More than 100 Bethel residents filled the village’s community center for the Cincinnati Tea Party’s meeting there. and Bethel is just one example of the more than 35 groups we’ve The meeting’s purpose was established,” Littleton said.

Three members of the BethelTate Local School District staff were reinstated thanks to money from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. Bethel-Tate will receive $157,183 in stimulus funds to be used over the next two years, said Amy Wells, district treasurer. With this money, the district rehired Amy Moss, Debra Schellenberger and Debra Hightower, who had bee laid off. Moss is an elementary school teacher; Schellenberger is a librarian, but will

“These are people who were already laid off for the next school year,” said Superintendent Jim Smith. “Every person we lay off impacts our operation. We don’t have any extra people, so this is really going to help us out.” Because the money is coming through the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act, these salaries will have no impact on the district’s general fund. The money will be received through Title 1 and the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act funds. While 85 percent of Title 1 funds usually have to spent within the first year, Wells said the

state legislature is working on drafting a waiver to allow the money to be spent equally over two years. However, until that is approved, the three staff members are only guaranteed employment for next year. While the district is planning to receive the money and has announced who will be brought off lay-offs, they haven’t received the federal money. “We have to have these dollars before these people can come back to work,” Smith said. “We’re gambling a bit and hoping that the money will be in place by the time school starts.”

Taylor recently was charged with two felony counts of theft after an investigation by the state auditor’s office found she allegedly took more than $13,000 from residents who paid mayor’s court fees such as tickets and fines over a two-year period. “Our auditors have identified and are investigating potential fraud within the village mayor’s court,” said

Auditor of State Mary Taylor. “We will conduct a thorough review of the facts and circumstances related to our findings and will release all information to the public when our investigation is complete.” Village Administrator Travis Dotson said he was surprised to learn so much money was missing. “I am confident justice

will be served in this case,” said Dotson. “$13,000 is a large amount of money to be taken in the time frame.” Terry was given a $1.50 per hour increase in pay, though Dotson said the move would save the village money because Taylor’s other position as police clerk was eliminated. “Council decided to add the role of mayor’s court clerk to the duties of the

full-time utilities clerk position,” he said. “The police clerk duties will be absorbed by the (police) chief and officers at this time. This will provide further reductions in the general fund expenses.” The state’s audit is ongoing and is expected to be completed this summer. Mayor John Swarthout did not return calls or emails requesting comment.

Bethel resident wins first place at Deer and Turkey Expo By Kellie Geist kgeist@communitypress.com

Nick Thompson hunted his award-winning buck with a bow for a month before hunting season began. And, on the opening day of the season, his efforts paid off. One of Thompson’s friends, who lives in Bethel, caught the buck on his property on video in early November 2008 and

showed the footage to Thompson. Thompson immediately starting hunting with a bow and arrows. After a month with no avail, Thompson, also of Bethel, saw it the first morning of hunting season, Dec. 1, on that same property. “I shoot left-handed and the buck was on my left. I shouldn’t have taken the shot, but I did,” Thompson said. “I knew it was the same buck and I hit him, but it wasn’t a vital shot.” Thompson and his father searched the woods throughout the morning for the wounded buck, but with no luck. Then, about six hours later, Thompson saw the buck’s rack sticking up out of the grass. He let the buck run about 60 yards before taking the shot with his 12gauge Mossberg shotgun. “I crawled up on him and took the shot. It was pretty amazing,” Thompson said.

Deer and Turkey Expo in March. The buck scored 195 5/8 net and 205 7/8 gross and broke two records. He was named a Boone and Crockett as well as Buckeye Big Buck deer. Thompson started hunting with his father when he was young and appreciates his wife support of the hobby. “She about kicked me to the curb when I spent all that time hunting this buck,” Thompson said. “I want to thank my wife, dad, friends and family.” When he’s not in the woods, Thompson works at the Hunter’s Den of Ohio gun shop in Amelia. The Hunter’s Den sells firearms and hunting equipment and will soon offer bows and arrows. The 15-point buck is on display at the shop.

ties, the goal of the program is being realized. “There are two components to this program,” said Taylor. “One involves purchasing and demolishing run down houses that could then be titled to Habitat for Humanity or another qualified agency to build a home. The other part of the program involves helping educate the home buyer when selecting and rehabbing a house. It will also provide assistance with the down payment.” All homes will be appraised and inspected prior to purchase. If the house can be rehabilitated and does not have any major structural faults, the applicant can purchase it for up to 15 percent below appraised value. Rehabilitation work will begin after the purchase.

The continued involved of the local 4-H clubs is one of the things that keeps the Clermont County Fair special, Scharber said. “Even though this area is becoming more urban, we still keep it a true county fair,” he said. “The 4-H, FFA, Scouts and junior fair are very active, I guess you could say that it’s a tradition that’s been going on for 160 years.” Scott Cangro, the 4-H youth coordinator in Clermont County, said the 4-H program has continued to grow despite the urban development in the county.

County helps residents save on prescriptions By Kellie Geist kgeist@communitypress.com

Clermont County residents, especially those without insurance, will be able to get their prescriptions a little cheaper. The Clermont County commissioners voted to join the National Association of Counties Managed Pharmacy Benefit Services Agreement, a program that provides care cards to residents for discounted prescriptions. Clermont County is already a member of NACo, so this program came at no additional cost to the county. With the program, residents will be able to get a 30-percent discount on

generic prescriptions and a 14-percent discount on name brands, said Robert Sander, Clermont County human resources director. Although residents won’t be able to use the card and their insurance in most cases, Sander said people with insurance should still pick up a card in case they need a prescription not covered by their insurance plan. Sander said 90 percent of pharmacies are participating in the care card program, which is administered through CaremarkPCS Health. According to the National Association of Counties Web site, there are no age, health or income

restrictions on who can use the cards and counties can use the cards for jail inmates. Caremark negotiates the discounts directly with participating pharmacies and neither NACo nor the participating counties receive any revenue from the program, the Web site said. While the program has been available since May 2005, Clermont County Commissioner Ed Humphrey said he and Commissioner Bob Proud saw this program at National Association of Counties conference in the spring. “We want to do whatever we can for our residents and this will help people,

especially those without insurance, save on their health care,” Humphrey said. The care cards will be available in eight to 10 weeks and there will be enough for all residents. When they are delivered, the commissioners will announce locations around the county where residents can pick up a card. Sander said while this is for Clermont County residents only, no registration or proof of residency will be required to get a card. “In a time when people are watching their pennies, we believe this will provide some additional relief for our residents,” Sander said.

using small arms fire. He was assigned to the 704th Brigade Support Battalion, 4th Brigade Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division in Fort Carson, Colo. Jim Missman and other family members traveled to Dover Air Force Base, Del., July 9 for the return of his son’s body to the United States. In addition to his father, Greg Missman is survived by his mother Donna Missman Turner, 4-year-old son Jack Missman, brother Michael Missman, step-sister Dawn Puccini, and exwife Brooke Missman. Missman said the Army conducted a very dignified ceremony for Greg’s arrival back on U.S. soil at Dover. He said the Army assigned three people to accompany the Missman family, and “they couldn’t have been nicer.” “It was just overwhelming,” Missman said of the ceremony at Dover. E.C.

Gregory J. Missman had served his country during a three-year stint in the Army in the 1990s. He left the service and returned to civilian life for 11 years. Last fall, the Pierce Township resident decided he wanted to get back in uniform again. He re-enlisted Veterans Day, Nov. 11. Missman, 36, died June 8 of wounds sustained while fighting in Afghanistan. Missman’s father, Jim Missman of Pierce Township, said his son “was very proud of what he did” in reenlisting. Missman becomes the first Clermont County serviceman to die in Afghanistan. Six others have died in Iraq. A Department of Defense news release said Spec.

arrangements when Greg’s body arrives back in the Cincinnati area this week. A visitation is planned for the Union Township Civic Center. Funeral services will be held at Mt. Moriah United Methodist Church in Withamsville. However, plans have not been finalized. Information about funeral can be found as it develops on Cincinnati.com/ uniontownship. Jim said his son was a 1993 graduate of Amelia High School. During his first enlistment in the Army, he served two years in Korea. The father said his son had worked as a systems analyst while out of the military. He said he was very good with computers. “I don’t know who I’m going to get to fix my computer,” the father said. Greg left for Afghanistan June 5. A recent photograph taken while Missman was home on leave shows him holding his gray cat,

“Buddy.” Jim said Greg was very fond of the cat. Jim said the cat is living at his home. “The cat will be taken care of, as will my grandson,” Jim Missman said. Missman said both he and his son were members of American Legion Post 72 in Union Township. Norman Nedeau, a member of the post, said he mostly knew Greg as Jim’s son. He said Jim is a longtime member of the post and past president. Nedeau said Jim Missman would come by the post almost every day. Occasionally he would come by with his son. He remembers Greg being very good with computers, even at a young age. “He was a pretty nice boy,” he said. Nedeau pointed out that Missman was the third member of the post to be killed in action in recent years. Members Matt Maupin and Mark Anthony “Tony” Wojciechowski were

We’re proud to have Greg as one of ours.” Volunteers of the Yellow Ribbon Support Center started hanging new yellow ribbons across Pierce and Union townships Thursday, July 9, Proud said. Also, he is asking those with flags to fly them at half-staff in honor of Greg.

SCHOOL NOTES Scholarship

Roy Vanderpool, a recent Bethel-Tate High School honors graduate, was awarded two scholarships to attend the Ohio State University. Vanderpool received the Trustees Scholarship for impressive academic performance, worth $4,200 for four years. Vanderpool also received the Land Grant

Opportunity Scholarship, one of Ohio State’s most competitive and prestigious awards, offered to a select group of talented students representing each county in Ohio. The Land Grant, determined primarily by high school academic performance as well as financial need, will cover the full cost of attending Ohio State, including tuition, housing, books meals and all fees. The scholarship is worth $24,138 per year for four years,

increasing each year as university costs increase. Vanderpool expects to study science and eventually work as a medical researcher.

COLLEGE CORNER Dean’s list

Rebecca Mansell has been named to the 2009 spring semes-

ter dean’s honor list at Berea College. She was also inducted into the Vincit Qui Patitur Honorary Soci-

ety for academic accomplishments. Mansell is a 2007 graduate of Bethel-Tate High School.

In support of Special Olympics, James “Spudd” Sasak is causing a stir around the state of Ohio … around the perimeter at least. During June, Sasak raised awareness about the relationship between Ohio Freemasons and Ohio Special Olympics. Each year, Masons across the state raise countless dollars to pay for athlete fees, accommodations and other expenses for those participating in Special Olympics. Sasak felt moved by this and wanted to raise awareness by traveling the perimeter of Ohio on his bicycle, asking Masons and athletes to meet him on the steps of each county courthouse to pose for a picture and chat before riding to the next county. His visit to Clermont County June 11 was a quick one, as he was scheduled to be in Cincinnati by 6 p.m. that same day.

“This is an incredible journey,” said Lisa Davis, director of community relations for the Clermont County Board of MRDD. “We hope Spudd makes this an annual event so we can plan a picnic in his honor next year.” Upon leaving the Cuyahoga County Courthouse in Cleveland June 1, Sasak had no idea Ohio had so many hills. His spirit wasn’t damped by the rain he recently experienced, either. June 26, this journey ended, as he made his way to the Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium in Columbus just in time for the opening ceremonies of the Ohio Special Olympics State Summer Games. Sasak was not alone; he was in the company of more than 6,000 athletes and coaches who welcomed him home with smiles, hugs, and many thanks for a job well done.

Bethel-Tate soccer dealing with challenges By Mark Chalifoux

The Bethel-Tate High School girls’ soccer program has been having strong workouts this summer, but head coach Tim Swart has another challenge to deal with as well: The economy. “There’s an additional $100 fee per player per sport due to the levy not passing,” he said. “A lot of kids will have to make decisions on how many sports they play.” He said the team is doing multiple fundraisers to help offset the extra fees, especially in the case of players who would’ve played otherwise but couldn’t pay the additional fee. “We did a car wash, we did a night at Skyline where the kids waited tables, we’re looking to do something for the sports night the boosters put on, we’re trying to organize a raffle, just do whatever we can,” Swart said. “Economic times are not the greatest so we have to see what we can do to help.” He said he’s been telling parents to stick with it even if they don’t want to pay the additional fee to see if the team can raise the money through fundraisers. “When push comes to shove the people within Bethel won’t let our kids down,” he said. “If a kid needs a scholarship, we’ll find a way to get that kid to play.” Swart said he was concerned because so many soccer players are multi-sport athletes and that some kids have felt the economic pinch in other ways as well. He said several players have had to pick up part-time jobs and aren’t able to make all of the workouts. “It’s a lot more stressful around for all of us, not just the coaches,” he said. “I wish I had the money to pay for all the sports and be done with it so everyone could have that opportunity. It’s frustrating.” Swart said he was looking forward to focusing on getting the team ready for the upcoming season as the program has been steadily improving in recent years.

We’re starting to gain a high level of interest in the progam.” That interest is key to getting more players to come out, which Swart said was important to continue developing the program. Swart said he has one of his

more intelligent groups in terms of classroom performance and that he sees it on the field as well. “They use a tremendous amount of thinking ability,” he said. “This group will work harder and understand a lot more about the game.” Swart said he hopes the num-

He said he doesn’t make cuts and that there’s strong team camaraderie among the girls. “I feel soccer builds a lot of character in kids and we teach the kids using soccer as a way to teach about life,” Swart said.

Row, row, row

The Clermont Crew girls’ quad rowing team, from front, Leslie Siegman, Jo Jeelani, Alexis Wharton and Emma Melton, gets ready to push off at the U.S. Rowing Youth Nationals. This team and the lightweight double team qualified at the Midwest Junior Rowing Championship in May. At nationals, the best crews from all over the country come to Harsha Lake to compete. The Clermont Crew teams trained twice a day to be in the best shape for nationals. Neither team advanced to the finals, but the girls gave their best and ended the season on a high note by competing at nationals. The teams will compete in July in the U.S. Rowing Club Nationals.

In just its second season of competition, the UC Clermont varsity baseball program has established itself as a contender on the national scene. The Cougars finished 23-18-1 overall, qualified for the postseason, placed fourth in the national tournament, and landed individuals on the All-American and AllTournament teams. The Cougars were one of eight teams selected to play in the U.S. Collegiate Athletic Association national championship tournament, May 11-14 in Hampton, Va. The Cougars placed fourth in the tournament. Sophomore catcher and Madeira High School alum Tony Ramirez was named to the AllTournament team. Sophomore first basemen Dominic “Nic” Constanzo, a Mariemont High School product, became the program’s first AllAmerican, making the honorable mention team. “Nic had an outstanding year,” head coach Joe Spriggs said. “He

The Cougars were one of eight teams selected to play in the U.S. Collegiate Athletic Association national championship tournament. does the things that we try to teach all the kids. He really leads by example.” Costanzo was surprised and honored to gain national recognition for his performance this season. He was most pleased with his team’s success in just its second season. “I thought the greatest thing this season was getting to nationals,” Constanzo said. “We have a legitimate shot to get back next year and win the whole thing.” That is the goal for the Cougars, who have recruited from the deep talent pool on Cincinnati’s east side and quickly assembled a skilled and experienced roster. UC Clermont sees itself on a similar level as two other local small colleges, the College of Mount St. Joseph on the west side and Thomas More College in

northern Kentucky. The east side lacked a comparable program until the Cougars began play in 2008. “The east side has kind of been starved for this type of program,” Spriggs said. “There are a lot of good players on this side of town.” Constanzo said it’s a comfortable atmosphere. “Most of the guys have played together or against each other since we were kids,” he said. Being selected to the USCAA national championship and earning individual honors brings the program national and local recognition. The coaching staff aims to build on the success of the 2009 season. The Cougars hope that their success this season will help with recruiting and keep UC Clermont in the discussion of possible 2010 national champions. “We hope this will be a huge help for our recruiting,” assistant coach Dino Constanzo said. “We bring back a strong nucleus next season. Our goal this year was to get to nationals and get noticed, and we want to get back and win a national title.”

LEAD Clermont: ‘The Best Class Ever’ I was at another meeting today with a group discussing Clermont 20/20’s High School Mentoring Program when it happened again. About 10 minutes into the meeting someone made the comment about being in the LEAD Class of 2003, then another chimed in that she was a LEAD grad of the Class of 2008, another immediately commented that he too was a member of the LEAD Class of 2008, and two or three others, myself included, proudly stated our class year along with the standard “Yeah, the Best Class Ever!” Invariably when the statement

of being a LEAD Clermont Grad is made, it is always followed quickly with pride with the comment “The Best Class Ever.” The connection of being a LEAD grad and part of “The Best Class Ever” is something that I’ve gotten more curious about. For example, when you add up all of the years the LEAD Clermont program has existed, Clermont 20/20 has produced more than 400 of the best class of leaders for Clermont County and the region. I can’t honestly tell you what each of the Lead grads is up to these days but I can tell you without hesitation that I run into them

everywhere. It’s a great feeling as the executive director of the organization to see how many people are engaged in the community in so many ways. Whether its time someone can give or taking the lead on an initiative, LEAD grads are alive and well and doing good things for the community. When I think about it, it’s a Linked-In kind of thing. We’re a special group of people who can and should stay connected to each other as we march through our years of service to our professions and community service. More importantly, we veteran leaders need to help the next gen-

eration of leaders find their footing so they can get in position to “take the reins.” This transition doesn’t happen quickly. It takes deliberate effort, financial resources, and often times, courage to keep the needle moving in the right direction. Without leadership the right direction is unlikely to be continuously developed. So I’m proud of the work Clermont 20/20 has accomplished in its first 19 years of service to Clermont County and look with optimism to the challenges that must be overcome in the years ahead. The track record of LEAD Cler-

mont grads clearly indicate that not only will these challenges be met; Andy ingenuity, initiaMcCreanor tive and innovation will reinCommunity force the direcPress guest tion of our columnist future. Thanks to those who have been and will be LEAD Clermont grads. Andy McCreanor is part of the LEAD Clermont Class of 1997, “The Best Class Ever.” He is the executive director of Clermont 20/20.

CH@TROOM Last week’s question

This month marks the 40th anniversary of man’s first step on the moon. What do you remember about that event? Do you think the U.S. should return to the moon? Why or why not?

“Unless we clearly would benefit in someway, or it would advance our knowledge in someway, with the fact we do not have the funds. I would have to object to the increased federal spending, which is already out of control. “My hope is that someday both the Republican and Democrat parties will begin to control spending. Excessive taxation leads to destruction of our financial system. “I continue to hope & pray our local township, city and state officials will begin to lead in our objection and bring government back to sanity.” F.J.B. “I remember it like yesterday, I was 12 years old at summer camp in Green Lake, Wisc., we all gathered so excitedly around a very small black and white TV to watch the first step on the moon. The camp was so primitive I have no idea where they got the TV or power cords to hook it up, but it was such an important event the counselors made sure we all witnessed this. It gave our generation such bright hopes for the future. If a man could ‘walk on the moon’ we could do anything we dreamed to accomplish ourselves. For that wonderful experience, I will be forever grateful.” P.H.S. “I would hope that any return

The International Space Station has already cost $125 billion from various countries. Between that and the recent bailouts I suspect the U.S. could have instead lowered taxes and provided for the legal citizens who need help. Go figure!” T.D.T. “It was July 21, 1969, and I was finishing up a career step in West Virginia, and preparing to move to Cincinnati. “I remember that a co-worker named Dick Longyear was with my wife and I when Neil Armstrong made history; his first words were, ‘Houston – the Eagle has landed.’ “And then came the unforgettable ‘That’s one small step for man, and one giant leap for mankind.’ “I may lack the necessary wisdom and foresight to understand it all clearly, but to be honest, I see no point in any attempts by the U.S. to return to the moon, or explore other planets in the solar system. “The risks will probably always remain incredibly high, the costs astronomical (no pun intended), and the benefits questionable.

Where were you July 20, 1969? Where were you? I was sitting on the dusty floor of the rec hall at Camp Graham in Clarksville, Ohio, at 4-H camp July 20, 1969. Bob Sutton, our 4-H agent, set up a small black and white television for us to watch the first man walk on the moon. We were able to hear Neil Armstrong say: “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.” I remember we could barely hear anything. The kids in front, closest to the TV, were trying to repeat everything and Bob finally told us all to quiet down and just watch. I remember the day being very hot, but we all bunched around the TV to see the landing. I was 10. I was fascinated by space, which as I learned in later years, so was the rest of the country. Before going to camp, I asked Mom to save all the newspapers so I could read about it once I got home. I made a scrapbook with photos and articles.

I’ve been fascinated by the space shuttle flights, too. I always remember when I started here at the paper. It was the day the Challenger blew up. But, I don’t think the kids today get the same thrill from the shuttle as we did as kids seeing men walk on the moon in those big bulky suits and all the talk about if their lines break they could just float away into space.

From veterinary care to timely vaccinations—and clean and comfortable living conditions to plenty of fresh food and water—healthy, well-cared-for flocks and herds are essential to livestock farming. That’s why it comes as no surprise that Ohio livestock farmers go above and beyond to make sure their animals receive the best possible care.

For an Ohio livestock farmer,

taking animal care seriously just makes sense.

For Ohio livestock farmers, caring for animals is not just a job…

it’s a way of life.

CATCH A STAR

KELLIE GEIST/STAFF

Diana Deimling, a flight nurse with University Hospital Air Care Unit, works to restock the helicopter after a flight. Deimling recently received a Florence Nightingale Award for Excellence in Nursing.

Nurse saves lives, improves programs By Kellie Geist kgeist@communitypress.com

As the only original member of the University Hospital Air Care Unit still in the sky, flight nurse Diana Deimling has dedicated the last 25 years of her life to saving lives. As part of the Air Care team, Deimling works hand-in-hand with the flight physician to stabilize patients and get them to treatment quickly. “It’s a very interesting, challenging job ... It’s important to bring a calm environment to wherever we go. To get there and to say, ‘It’s going to be OK,’” Deimling said. “A flight nurse is someone that can maintain their head while everything around them is chaotic.” In addition to her work in the sky, Deimling, 51, of Union Township, also spends time working with programs like EMS ridealongs and Air Care orientations. Her work in the sky and on the ground earned her the Florence Nightingale Awards for Excellence in Nursing, which was presented in April. Deimling was nominated by Dr. William Hinckley, flight physician and medical director. Deimling and Hinckley

have been on a number of challenging flights together. Deimling recalls one in Union Township where the Air Care team was able to save a mother and her unborn child after a car crash. “When she’s not flying, she’s constantly seeking out ways to make Air Care better,” Hinckley said. “It’s the combination of what she does when she’s flying to save lives and the work she does religiously during her down-time that makes her great.” Deimling said while she was “pleasantly surprised” by the award, she thinks any of the flight nurses could have won. Deimling always wanted to be a nurse. When she was young, she enjoyed caring for the family’s pets. Then, after receiving her nursing degree, she worked in the emergency room and the intensive care unit at University, which eventually led to her job as a flight nurse. “I’d never flown on a helicopter before, but I really liked roller coasters. It’s something you don’t know you’ll like until you try it,” Deimling said. Deimling met her husband, Union Township Fire Chief Stan Deimling, when she was called to transport a patient.

THINGS TO DO

By Kellie Geist, John Seney and Mary Dannemiller clermont@communitypress.com

Whether it’s a refreshing fruit dip or a delicious pie, every family has that one dish they always bring to the family picnics and holiday parties. MomsLikeMe.com has pulled some of the Tristate’s tastiest dishes together for their Summer 2009 cookbook. Of the 63 recipes features in the cookbook, here are some favorites submitted by Clermont County moms. Denise Byrum of New Richmond submitted spaghetti salad as her favorite summer recipe. She originally got the recipe from a friend in graduate school and improved on it to make it her own. ”It’s a healthy and easy to make. I serve it to my family for picnic-like events,” she said. She said everyone in her family likes the spaghetti salad, but she probably likes it more than her husband and son. “My husband is happy if he doesn’t have to cook,” said Byrum, who works at Shriner’s Hospital in Cincinnati. She said she also does a lot of crockpot cooking in the summer. Another Clermont County favorite is Kimberly Maldonado’s Chocolate Chip Cheese Ball. Maldonado, of Batavia, found the basis for this recipe online when she was looking for a dish to take to a picnic. “It was actually a Kathie Lee recipe that I tweaked. Her recipe called for Pecans, but I thought mini chocolate chips sounded better,” Maldonado said. She also increased the amount of powdered sugar in her version of the recipe. Maldonado said once she made the Chocolate Chip Cheese Ball dessert, it was an instant hit. “Every time I go somewhere, people ask for it ... I haven’t found anybody yet that hasn’t liked it,” she said.

Beat cream cheese, butter and vanilla. Add sugars and beat together. Form into a “It kind of tastes like cheesecake. It goes really well with the graham crackers, but once those are gone, people just eat it with a spoon.” Maldonado said the trick to making this dish perfect is to let the butter and cream cheese soften before mixing. She added that while she usually serves it with regular graham cracker sticks, it’s fun to experiment with other dippers and flavors.

Fruit Trifle

1 quart strawberries, thinly sliced 1 pint blueberries 2 teaspoons confectionery sugar 1 3.4 ounce package of French vanilla pudding 1 cup sour cream 1 cup milk 1 prepared pound cake 3 tablespoons orange juice 2 cups whipped cream

Mix berries with confectionery sugar and set aside. In a separate bowl, mix pudding, sour cream and milk until blended. Cut pound cake into thick slices. Using a trifle bowl or deep serving bowl, place a layer of pound cake slices on the bottom. Sprinkle one tablespoon orange juice on 1 the pound cake. Spread ⁄3 cup of fruit mixture. Repeat steps two more times. Top with whipped cream and a few berries. “It was a dish my mother used to make that became a summer basic for us,” Hammons said. “I even gave up my birthday cake so I could have fruit trifle instead.” Her own children, ages 2 and 4, are too young to enjoy the medley of berries, cream and pound cake, but Hammons hopes to pass the recipe on someday. “They’ll like it more as they get older, they’re just young and particular right now,” she said. “They like to eat the fruit, the pudding and the pound cake all separately.” For more recipes from moms in Clermont County and around the Tristate, pick up a free MomsLikeMe.com cookbook at Bigg’s.

We suppose that if a person we become a philosopher. Thereafter we pose momentous has prestige, wealth, celebrity and popularity that those facts bring questions to ourselves and it takes with them a certain degree of the rest of our lives to answer them. immortality. It’s a sad occurrence when We suppose important people (presuming they are) have a favored people never even let charmed life and are too important themselves get to the questions. Among the questions that arise to lose. Death is supposed to show are ones such as: How should I

live knowing I will die some day? Why love anyone at all if they can be taken away from me, and I from them? Is it better to be cautious and avoid the risk of great love for someone in order to be safe from the heartache of grief? Is there more life after this world’s life that is even more desirable, or is there only disintegration and dry nothingness? Is there a God who created me, loves me, and keeps me alive eternally? The alternative to struggling with questions such as these is to employ certain defenses against the questions ever arising. Hedonism says we can become impervious to death anxiety if we “eat, drink, and be merry.” Denial says, “Just don’t think about it and keep busy.” Agnostic practicality asks,

“Why try to live life wholeheartedly if it will all end?” Ernest Becker acknowledges this strange way of thinking: “The irony of man’s condition is that the deepest need is to be free of the anxiety of death and annihilation; but it is life itself which awakens it, and so we shrink from being fully alive.” Will it help us diminish death anxiety if we draw back from life, from deeply loving, from compassion and enjoyment and closeness to another person? The answer - like so many other answers – is another of life’s paradoxes. Knowing death will come for us some day is the very factor that makes it possible for us to live life now in an authentic fashion. For what is limited is precious, what is plentiful becomes cheap. Knowing our years are limited

urges us to appreciate their preciousness. Death – rather being only a cause of bleak pessimism – ought to be a catalyst to enjoy authentic life modes now. Poet Mary Oliver puts it well: When it’s over, I want to say: all my life I was a bride married to amazement. I was the bridegroom taking the world into my arms. … I don’t want to end up simply having visited this world. Father Lou Guntzelman is a Catholic priest of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati.

Use cash instead of debit to avoid overdraft charges The nation’s banks continue to raise fees on everything from credit cards to checking accounts. Banks say they need the money to make up for losses they incur during this recession. But customers and consumer groups are crying foul. Banks have come under much criticism for making it easy for customers to spend more money than they have in their account so they can assess overdraft fees. People like Bridget Felts of Milford are furious. She received three overdraft charges recently and said it’s

not fair. “This was for a total of a negative $5.90, and they are chargme, Howard Ain ing with one Hey Howard! fee that w a s already taken off, $104 – for $5.90. I was just dumbfounded,” Felts said. Felts’ bank had agreed to drop one charge, but not the other two. “It’s a negative $5.90, from what they’re telling me

because, if you look at the statement, it shows I have money the whole time – it never went negative. But they keep saying, ‘It’s for pending. It’s for pending,’ ” she said. The “pending” charges are for two debit card purchases of less than $5 each. “We budget our biweekly checks to the penny so $104, that’s our grocery money, that’s our gas in our car. It’s devastating. I was literally begging these people to give me my money back,” Felts said. After several calls the bank agreed to return the

fees, but Felts said what happened is wrong. “The punishment should fit the crime. If there’s a negative $5.90 balance, $104 is absurd, it’s absolutely ridiculous … It’s not right. It can take months for families to recoup these losses,” Felts said. “I’m a family of five, every penny counts, and they’re just taking it like, ‘Oh, it’s no big deal,’ ” she said. As with others I’ve seen in this situation, most of the overdraft fees are caused by the use of a debit card. Instead of putting those

small charges on her debit card she could have paid cash, and Felts says she’s now learned her lesson. “Use cash. People need to start using cash more often,” she said. Felts said the government is enacting new credit card laws and should reevaluate what the banks are doing. The Federal Reserve is now deciding whether to crack down on automatic overdraft protection. A rule is expected later this year that would prevent banks from manipulating the order of checks and deb-

its so they maximize overdraft fees. Meanwhile, Congress is also listening to consumers and a proposal there would require banks to tell customers when they are at risk of incurring overdraft fees at an ATM machine or cash register so they can cancel the transaction.

Kids with egg, dairy allergy can still eat cake One of the most fun things about writing this column is the feedback I get from you. No matter where I am, whether it’s the grocery store, Macy’s, teaching a class or speaking to a group, someone comes up and mentions my column. I have Rita a l w a y s Heikenfeld b e l i e v e d Rita’s kitchen t h a t ’ s because this column isn’t just about food: it’s a “place� where we gather each week and share recipes, memories, tips, opinions. A good example of this is Michelle Smith, a New Richmond reader, who requested an eggless cake for son Ethan’s 4th birthday. Clermont County reader Annie Hoffman, a cottage baker, came to the rescue. The bonus is the cake is dairy-free, too.

Annie’s dairy-free, eggless chocolate cake

Annie says, “The kids will love this cake.� Will make 26 cupcakes, a 9-by-13 pan, a 12-by-9 pan or even an 8-by-8 pan. Annie likes to use a 12by-9 pan or 8-by-8 square for thicker cake. Just adjust the baking time: 18 to 20 minutes for cupcakes; start testing cakes about 25 minutes. When toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, it’s done. Don’t overbake. Temperature: 350 degrees for all. 3 cups all purpose flour 2 cups sugar 6 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder 2 teaspoons baking soda 2 teaspoons baking powder 2 ⠄3 cup Canola (she uses Kroger) oil 2 cups water 2 tablespoons white/ clear vinegar 2 teaspoons vanilla Combine dry ingredients

in one bowl. Combine wet ingredients together in one bowl. Mix both together and beat until smooth. Pour into sprayed pan. Annie says cupcakes won’t be very tall but will be very moist.

Dairy-free fluffy frosting

Use vegetable shortening, not Crisco or any shortening that’s non-hydrogenated (Annie says it slides off the cake due to formula change to make it non-hydrogenated – it’s OK for cupcakes but will slide off sides of cake), so use Kroger or other store, generic brand that says vegetable shortening/hydrogenated. See my tip below. Use any flavor extract you like. 1

⠄2 cup vegetable shortening 4 cups powdered sugar, sifted 5 tablespoons water 1 ⠄2 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon vanilla 1 ⠄2 teaspoon almond extract (opt.) 1 ⠄4 teaspoon butter flavoring (Wilton brand since it’s a

clear color) – opt. Put everything in bowl. Mix on low to incorporate. Scrape, then turn on medium for eight minutes. This will incorporate air so don’t skip this step – otherwise you’ll wind up with sugary, not fluffy, frosting. Makes 4 cups. Refrigerates up to six weeks – bring to room temp and rewhip on low. Chocolate: Start adding cocoa powder to taste, and, if necessary, a bit more water. “Makes the fudgiest frosting.�

On the Web

For another good eggless recipe plus tips on making a box cake eggless/dairy-free, log onto my Web version of this column at www.communitypress.com or call 513-591-6163 and leave your name and address.

Tip from Rita’s kitchen

Trouble with shortening: If you’ve experienced trouble with recipes using non-hydrogenated shorten-

ing (that makes it healthier), switch back to hydrogenated. Seems like most trouble is with pie crusts/frostings. I know, I know, hydrogenated shortening is not as healthy as non-hydrogenated but really, it’s not something any of us eat on a daily basis. Annie and I agree you should use what makes your recipes taste and look great. Otherwise, you’re wasting money, time and compromising flavor and appearance.

Like Famous Recipe’s slaw

For Mrs. Whitmer and several others. Go to taste on vinegar, sugar, lemon juice. 1

â „3 cup sugar â „2 teaspoon salt 1 â „8 teaspoon pepper 1 â „4 cup milk 1 â „2 cup mayonnaise 1 â „4 cup buttermilk 11â „2 tablespoons distilled white vinegar 21â „2 tablespoons lemon juice 1

8 cups finely chopped cabbage 1 â „4 cup grated carrots Whisk together sugar, salt, pepper, milk, mayo, buttermilk, vinegar and juice until smooth. Add cabbage and carrots and mix well. Refrigerate at least two hours before serving.

Rooting out recipes

Recipe clairfication

Dreamsicle cake: Some readers are confused as to the Kool-Aid called for in the recipe. It’s 1/4 teaspoon and yes, it’'s dry.

I got down to the hospital and the doctor came in George a r o u n d Rooks 10:45 and Ole seemed to a grin Fisherman have on his face, he said her blood count was 2.09 and she could go home. Boy I could have given him a big hug! So by 1:30 p.m. we were on our way to get a prescription filled and home. Now folks the first day when I left to come home without my gal, it was very hard leaving her there but it was a must. She is doing good. Thanks to the Good Lord and the doctors. Did you see the picture in the paper about the feller that caught the record grass carp in Kentucky. It weighed 58 pounds. The feller had a time landing the fish. The fishing here at East Fork is good with some fine catches of crappie, catfish and bluegills and a few carp being caught. Now these carp will give a good fight. I didn’t forget about the bass, that takes another type of fishing to

catch them. These bass fishermen have an arsenal of plugs to use. Every Tuesday evening here at East Fork there is a bass tournament and the weigh-in is around 9 p.m. at the Tate Ramp, so stop in and watch it. Also the Boar’s Head Bait Shop in Afton has crappie tournaments two Sundays a month. Their weighin is around 4 p.m. at the Afton side. The garden is starting to grow due to the drier weath-

mum grazing conditions,” said Farley. Among the topics to be covered at grazing school: Pasture plant growth, environmental impacts of grazing, fencing options and mineral supplementation. The cost of the class is $35, which includes a book and a pasture stick. A pasture stick is a little longer than a yard stick and is used to show the amount of forage available per acre, the height of the grass, lines of when to graze the pasture and when to stop. Refreshments will be provided by the Clermont Soil and Water Conservation District. For more information or to register, contact OSU Extension-Clermont at (513) 732-7070. The deadline to register is July 22.

Howdy folks, Well, we lost another good friend to the Lord. This feller was a farmer and a hard worker. He also had a dairy of 40 cows. His wife went to heaven several years ago, so now Henry Stahl joins her. Their farm was next to ours as I was growing up and my brother and I sometimes helped them out. Last Tuesday Ruth Ann was feeling bad so we went to the emergency room at Mercy Hospital Anderson. After a chest cat scan they found she had blood clots in both lungs. After another test they found another one behind her left knee. The doctor seems to think the ones in her lungs came from the one behind her knee. She was admitted to the hospital and it seems they were short of blood, as they took samples from her about every two to three hours! Not really, I’m kidding about the shortage! She was also anemic so they gave her two units of blood and she perked up and had a better color in her face. She was in the hospital from Tuesday until Sunday. Her arms were in bad shape due to the blood being taken, but the ones who took it were very good. The nursing was wonderful. These ladies were so helpful, caring and loving. On Saturday her blood thinning count was 1.34 and it had to be at least 2 before she could be released. I was going to go to church Sunday morning, but I called her and said I was going to come on down to be with her. There were a lot of

If you keep livestock in Clermont County, you will want to attend the Ohio State University (OSU) Extension-Clermont’s Grazing School. “This is a great opportunity to learn how to manage pasture land properly, even when dealing with a small amount of acreage,” said Agriculture/Natural Resources Program Coordinator Latham Farley. The three-part program will be held at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 4; Wednesday, Aug. 5; and Wednesday, Aug. 12, at the Felicity Community Center, 2003 Main St. “We will discuss a variety of different topics each evening, and on the third evening we will take a pasture walk so participants can get a better idea on opti-

Beth Muskopf and Dawn Betts. Paul Ringhand, Larry Chaney and Sally Kay represented Locust Corner Community Church. It was the church’s second appearance in the spelling bee. Other teams who participated were: Clermont County Public Library, Literacy Council of Clermont & Brown Counties, U.S. Grant Career Center, UC Clermont College, Workforce One of Clermont County, St. Timothy’s Episcopal Church “Saints,” St. Timothy Episcopal Church “Cherubim,” Child Focus and Great Oaks Career Campuses.

major sponsors this year. A big thank you also goes to the dozens of people who gave monetary gifts, contributed or bid on items for the silent auction, and donated or bought items in the ‘fire’ sale. “We (can’t forget to) thank the Milford Firefighters for the use of their Community Hall,” Gillespie said. Kroger, LaRosa’s, Little Caesar’s, Donato’s, Batelle’s Bakery & Catering, Literacy Council volunteers and the Locust Corner Community Church ladies donated the lunch. International Paper contributed the drinks. The event, although designed as a fundraiser, serves to highlight those organizations that aspire to teach adults to read, to earn their GED, to further their education and to improve their life and those of their families.

wealth wasted. Milbank was a humble man who inspired greatness in others. His extraordinary and life-long concern for youth and those less fortunate has changed the lives of millions and is the inspiration for The Jeremiah Milbank Society. The Jeremiah Milbank Society was established by Boys & Girls Clubs of America as a fitting way to thank and recognize those individuals across the United States who exhibit the same compassionate, caring and humble generosity of spirit as Milbank did in his lifetime. Annual membership in the Jeremiah Milbank Society is for those individuals who make an unrestricted gift to any local Boys & Girls Club of $10,000 or more. The Wilson’s joined the society in 2008 by virtue of their generous contribution of $10,000 to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Clermont County. Their continued support has helped make it possible for young people to receive the guidance, opportunity and encouragement they need to take control of their lives, envision productive futures and reach their goals.

With 40 rounds and a three-way tie for first place, the 17th annual Literacy Spelling Bee left a sweet taste in the mouths of team members for Clermont Senior Services, Clermont County Education Service Center and Locust Corner Community Church. “We hosted a historymaking event this year,” said Spelling Bee Co-Chair Kathleen Gillespie. “This is the first time the bee ended in a three-way tie. I’m looking forward to next year’s bee already. The fun competition should be even greater at Spelling Bee 2010.” Literacy Council Director Susan Vilardo agreed. “We had an exceptional group of spellers.” (All three winning teams spelled their way into the top three at last year’s bee.) Altogether, 13 teams participated in the bee, which is the Literacy Council’s major fundraising event each year. The event took place at the Firefighters Hall

County offers good health booklet to improve fitness

Humane Society needs your help in Clermont Co. If you’ve ever adopted an animal from the Clermont County Humane Society, you know the love you give is returned tenfold. Thousands of unwanted and abused dogs and cats come into the shelter each year. “Ohio law dictates that dogs need only be held for three days, presenting shelter staff with difficult decisions,” said Clermont County Animal Shelter Director Kim Naegel. “Due to the fundraising efforts of our Humane Society volunteers and the generosity of our community, we are able to keep animals longer, and also provide a protected place for unwanted cats, kittens, and occasionally other small animals, which is not a state requirement.” Community support is urgently needed to continue to keep animals longer, provide refuge for cats, and operate the Adoption Center and after-hours emergency run program. “The revenue collected through the sale of dog licenses provides for the staffing and operation of the animal control operation. It does not provide for the Adoption Center or after-hours program. Without the volunteers and monetary contributions from the community, the level of service would be greatly diminished,” said Naegel. “We want to ensure that every healthy animal is given every opportunity to find a forever home.” One way to support the shelter is to become a member of the Clermont County Humane Society. A student can join for only $15 a year, an annual membership is $30, corporate membership is $150, and a lifetime membership is $250. Members receive a newsletter updating them on shelter activities and legislation pertaining to animals. Call 732-8854 or visit the Web site www.ClermontAnimalShelter.org.

The health district, using a Healthy Weight in Ohio Communities grant, worked with the Center for Urban and Public Affairs at Wright State University to conduct a community health survey. The study questioned 900

Somerset, Kentucky’s Premiere Inn Located Just Minutes from Lake Cumberland

There is a joke among friends here, “It’s a Phoenix that has risen from the ashes. ”When Charles and Allison Hahn Sobieck purchased the property at 502 North Main Street (in Somerset, Kentucky), there was a lot of work to be done, to say the least. With the vision of a B & B and a home in ruins, there were little choices. The dilapidated structure was removed, then reconstructed as it had been in the 1850’s. It’s a brand new home. A bit of an unusual concept for a bed and breakfast. “We reconstructed the home from scratch. This gave us the benefit of designing every amenity possible along the way, ”said Allison Sobieck, owner. Every room is equipped with many amenities you don’t often find in a traditional bed and breakfast, but rather a fine hotel. Every room has a full sized closet with a pair of micro-fiber robes hanging in them, 400- count Egyptian cotton sheets, cable TV with DVD players, queen sized beds, and a host of other things. For instance, 2 rooms have gas fireplaces and 3 rooms have whirlpool tubs. We even offer many add on amenities such as massage, dinner, flowers, etc…

The rooms are only half of the reason to come to The Doolin House. Owners Charles and Allison just happen to both be chefs. Some of the breakfast specialties include Caramel Banana French Toast and Southern Eggs Benedict (2 fried green tomatoes topped with 2 slices of smoked bacon, 2 eggs over easy and Hollandaise). Chuck is usually in charge of breakfast and tries to do new and different things every day. Chef Chuck pointed out, “It’s fun to experiment with breakfast. It’s the one meal that encompasses all foods. It’s perfectly acceptable to see smoked salmon or a pork cutlet at the breakfast table. ”For those in no rush to rise and shine, breakfast in bed is served at no additional charge. When you need a weekend get away that’s not too far from home or you are planning your summer vacation to beautiful Lake Cumberland, remember that The Doolin House Bed and Breakfast is only a phone call away.

When the Cincinnati Tea Party decided to hold a meeting in Bethel, organizers expected 15 to 20 people to attend. But Bethel residents surprised the group when more than 100 people packed the village’s community center Monday, July 6, for the Cincinnati Tea Party’s first meeting there. The Cincinnati Tea Party is a grassroots, non-partisan group opposed to wasteful government spending, said spokeswoman Sue White. The group chose Bethel as a good community to set up a satellite office in because citizens expressed interest in the group, said Chris Littleton, director of community groups. “The Cincinnati Tea Party has decided that one of the most important things we can do is to actually start getting people in local communities talking about MARY DANNEMILLER/STAFF the things we feel are important More than 100 Bethel residents filled the village’s community center for the Cincinnati Tea Party’s meeting there. and Bethel is just one example of the more than 35 groups we’ve The meeting’s purpose was established,” Littleton said.

Three members of the BethelTate Local School District staff were reinstated thanks to money from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. Bethel-Tate will receive $157,183 in stimulus funds to be used over the next two years, said Amy Wells, district treasurer. With this money, the district rehired Amy Moss, Debra Schellenberger and Debra Hightower, who had bee laid off. Moss is an elementary school teacher; Schellenberger is a librarian, but will

“These are people who were already laid off for the next school year,” said Superintendent Jim Smith. “Every person we lay off impacts our operation. We don’t have any extra people, so this is really going to help us out.” Because the money is coming through the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act, these salaries will have no impact on the district’s general fund. The money will be received through Title 1 and the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act funds. While 85 percent of Title 1 funds usually have to spent within the first year, Wells said the

state legislature is working on drafting a waiver to allow the money to be spent equally over two years. However, until that is approved, the three staff members are only guaranteed employment for next year. While the district is planning to receive the money and has announced who will be brought off lay-offs, they haven’t received the federal money. “We have to have these dollars before these people can come back to work,” Smith said. “We’re gambling a bit and hoping that the money will be in place by the time school starts.”

Taylor recently was charged with two felony counts of theft after an investigation by the state auditor’s office found she allegedly took more than $13,000 from residents who paid mayor’s court fees such as tickets and fines over a two-year period. “Our auditors have identified and are investigating potential fraud within the village mayor’s court,” said

Auditor of State Mary Taylor. “We will conduct a thorough review of the facts and circumstances related to our findings and will release all information to the public when our investigation is complete.” Village Administrator Travis Dotson said he was surprised to learn so much money was missing. “I am confident justice

will be served in this case,” said Dotson. “$13,000 is a large amount of money to be taken in the time frame.” Terry was given a $1.50 per hour increase in pay, though Dotson said the move would save the village money because Taylor’s other position as police clerk was eliminated. “Council decided to add the role of mayor’s court clerk to the duties of the

full-time utilities clerk position,” he said. “The police clerk duties will be absorbed by the (police) chief and officers at this time. This will provide further reductions in the general fund expenses.” The state’s audit is ongoing and is expected to be completed this summer. Mayor John Swarthout did not return calls or emails requesting comment.

Bethel resident wins first place at Deer and Turkey Expo By Kellie Geist kgeist@communitypress.com

Nick Thompson hunted his award-winning buck with a bow for a month before hunting season began. And, on the opening day of the season, his efforts paid off. One of Thompson’s friends, who lives in Bethel, caught the buck on his property on video in early November 2008 and

showed the footage to Thompson. Thompson immediately starting hunting with a bow and arrows. After a month with no avail, Thompson, also of Bethel, saw it the first morning of hunting season, Dec. 1, on that same property. “I shoot left-handed and the buck was on my left. I shouldn’t have taken the shot, but I did,” Thompson said. “I knew it was the same buck and I hit him, but it wasn’t a vital shot.” Thompson and his father searched the woods throughout the morning for the wounded buck, but with no luck. Then, about six hours later, Thompson saw the buck’s rack sticking up out of the grass. He let the buck run about 60 yards before taking the shot with his 12gauge Mossberg shotgun. “I crawled up on him and took the shot. It was pretty amazing,” Thompson said.

Deer and Turkey Expo in March. The buck scored 195 5/8 net and 205 7/8 gross and broke two records. He was named a Boone and Crockett as well as Buckeye Big Buck deer. Thompson started hunting with his father when he was young and appreciates his wife support of the hobby. “She about kicked me to the curb when I spent all that time hunting this buck,” Thompson said. “I want to thank my wife, dad, friends and family.” When he’s not in the woods, Thompson works at the Hunter’s Den of Ohio gun shop in Amelia. The Hunter’s Den sells firearms and hunting equipment and will soon offer bows and arrows. The 15-point buck is on display at the shop.

ties, the goal of the program is being realized. “There are two components to this program,” said Taylor. “One involves purchasing and demolishing run down houses that could then be titled to Habitat for Humanity or another qualified agency to build a home. The other part of the program involves helping educate the home buyer when selecting and rehabbing a house. It will also provide assistance with the down payment.” All homes will be appraised and inspected prior to purchase. If the house can be rehabilitated and does not have any major structural faults, the applicant can purchase it for up to 15 percent below appraised value. Rehabilitation work will begin after the purchase.

They’ve become very popular, especially in the last few years,” Scharber said. He expects more than 100,000 people to visit the fair this year. The continued involved of the local 4-H clubs is one of the things that keeps the Clermont County Fair special, Scharber said. “Even though this area is becoming more urban, we still keep it a true county fair,” he said. “The 4-H, FFA, Scouts and junior fair are very active, I guess you could say that it’s a tradition that’s been going on for 160 years.” Scott Cangro, the 4-H youth coordinator in Clermont County, said the 4-H program has continued to grow despite the urban development in the county.

County helps residents save on prescriptions By Kellie Geist kgeist@communitypress.com

Clermont County residents, especially those without insurance, will be able to get their prescriptions a little cheaper. The Clermont County commissioners voted to join the National Association of Counties Managed Pharmacy Benefit Services Agreement, a program that provides care cards to residents for discounted prescriptions. Clermont County is already a member of NACo, so this program came at no additional cost to the county. With the program, residents will be able to get a 30-percent discount on

generic prescriptions and a 14-percent discount on name brands, said Robert Sander, Clermont County human resources director. Although residents won’t be able to use the card and their insurance in most cases, Sander said people with insurance should still pick up a card in case they need a prescription not covered by their insurance plan. Sander said 90 percent of pharmacies are participating in the care card program, which is administered through CaremarkPCS Health. According to the National Association of Counties Web site, there are no age, health or income

restrictions on who can use the cards and counties can use the cards for jail inmates. Caremark negotiates the discounts directly with participating pharmacies and neither NACo nor the participating counties receive any revenue from the program, the Web site said. While the program has been available since May 2005, Clermont County Commissioner Ed Humphrey said he and Commissioner Bob Proud saw this program at National Association of Counties conference in the spring. “We want to do whatever we can for our residents and this will help people,

especially those without insurance, save on their health care,” Humphrey said. The care cards will be available in eight to 10 weeks and there will be enough for all residents. When they are delivered, the commissioners will announce locations around the county where residents can pick up a card. Sander said while this is for Clermont County residents only, no registration or proof of residency will be required to get a card. “In a time when people are watching their pennies, we believe this will provide some additional relief for our residents,” Sander said.

using small arms fire. He was assigned to the 704th Brigade Support Battalion, 4th Brigade Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division in Fort Carson, Colo. Jim Missman and other family members traveled to Dover Air Force Base, Del., July 9 for the return of his son’s body to the United States. In addition to his father, Greg Missman is survived by his mother Donna Missman Turner, 4-year-old son Jack Missman, brother Michael Missman, step-sister Dawn Puccini, and exwife Brooke Missman. Missman said the Army conducted a very dignified ceremony for Greg’s arrival back on U.S. soil at Dover. He said the Army assigned three people to accompany the Missman family, and “they couldn’t have been nicer.” “It was just overwhelming,” Missman said of the ceremony at Dover. E.C.

Gregory J. Missman had served his country during a three-year stint in the Army in the 1990s. He left the service and returned to civilian life for 11 years. Last fall, the Pierce Township resident decided he wanted to get back in uniform again. He re-enlisted Veterans Day, Nov. 11. Missman, 36, died June 8 of wounds sustained while fighting in Afghanistan. Missman’s father, Jim Missman of Pierce Township, said his son “was very proud of what he did” in reenlisting. Missman becomes the first Clermont County serviceman to die in Afghanistan. Six others have died in Iraq. A Department of Defense news release said Spec. Missman died of wounds sustained when enemy forces attacked his unit

Moriah United Methodist Church in Withamsville. However, plans have not been finalized. Information about funeral can be found as it develops on Cincinnati.com/uniontownship. Jim said his son was a 1993 graduate of Amelia High School. During his first enlistment in the Army, he served two years in Korea. The father said his son had worked as a systems analyst while out of the military. He said he was very good with computers. “I don’t know who I’m going to get to fix my computer,” the father said. Greg left for Afghanistan June 5. A recent photograph taken while Missman was home on leave shows him holding his gray cat,

“Buddy.” Jim said Greg was very fond of the cat. Jim said the cat is living at his home. “The cat will be taken care of, as will my grandson,” Jim Missman said. Missman said both he and his son were members of American Legion Post 72 in Union Township. Norman Nedeau, a member of the post, said he mostly knew Greg as Jim’s son. He said Jim is a longtime member of the post and past president. Nedeau said Jim Missman would come by the post almost every day. Occasionally he would come by with his son. He remembers Greg being very good with computers, even at a young age. “He was a pretty nice boy,” he said. Nedeau pointed out that Missman was the third member of the post to be killed in action in recent years. Members Matt Maupin and Mark Anthony “Tony” Wojciechowski were

Also, he is asking those with flags to fly them at half-staff in honor of Greg.

SCHOOL NOTES Scholarship

Roy Vanderpool, a recent Bethel-Tate High School honors graduate, was awarded two scholarships to attend the Ohio State University. Vanderpool received the Trustees Scholarship for impressive academic performance, worth $4,200 for four years. Vanderpool also received the Land Grant

Opportunity Scholarship, one of Ohio State’s most competitive and prestigious awards, offered to a select group of talented students representing each county in Ohio. The Land Grant, determined primarily by high school academic performance as well as financial need, will cover the full cost of attending Ohio State, including tuition, housing, books meals and all fees. The scholarship is worth $24,138 per year for four years,

increasing each year as university costs increase. Vanderpool expects to study science and eventually work as a medical researcher.

COLLEGE CORNER Dean’s list

Rebecca Mansell has been named to the 2009 spring semes-

ter dean’s honor list at Berea College. She was also inducted into the Vincit Qui Patitur Honorary Soci-

ety for academic accomplishments. Mansell is a 2007 graduate of Bethel-Tate High School.

In support of Special Olympics, James “Spudd” Sasak is causing a stir around the state of Ohio … around the perimeter at least. During June, Sasak raised awareness about the relationship between Ohio Freemasons and Ohio Special Olympics. Each year, Masons across the state raise countless dollars to pay for athlete fees, accommodations and other expenses for those participating in Special Olympics. Sasak felt moved by this and wanted to raise awareness by traveling the perimeter of Ohio on his bicycle, asking Masons and athletes to meet him on the steps of each county courthouse to pose for a picture and chat before riding to the next county. His visit to Clermont County June 11 was a quick one, as he was scheduled to be in Cincinnati by 6 p.m. that same day.

“This is an incredible journey,” said Lisa Davis, director of community relations for the Clermont County Board of MRDD. “We hope Spudd makes this an annual event so we can plan a picnic in his honor next year.” Upon leaving the Cuyahoga County Courthouse in Cleveland June 1, Sasak had no idea Ohio had so many hills. His spirit wasn’t damped by the rain he recently experienced, either. June 26, this journey ended, as he made his way to the Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium in Columbus just in time for the opening ceremonies of the Ohio Special Olympics State Summer Games. Sasak was not alone; he was in the company of more than 6,000 athletes and coaches who welcomed him home with smiles, hugs, and many thanks for a job well done.

Bethel-Tate soccer dealing with challenges

By Mark Chalifoux

mchalifoux@communitypress.com

The Bethel-Tate High School girls’ soccer program has been having strong workouts this summer, but head coach Tim Swart has another challenge to deal with as well: The economy. “There’s an additional $100 fee per player per sport due to the levy not passing,” he said. “A lot of kids will have to make decisions on how many sports they play.” He said the team is doing multiple fundraisers to help offset the extra fees, especially in the case of players who would’ve played otherwise but couldn’t pay the additional fee. “We did a car wash, we did a night at Skyline where the kids waited tables, we’re looking to do something for the sports night the boosters put on, we’re trying to organize a raffle, just do whatever we can,” Swart said. “Economic times are not the greatest so we have to see what we can do to help.” He said he’s been telling parents to stick with it even if they don’t want to pay the additional fee to see if the team can raise the money through fundraisers. “When push comes to shove the people within Bethel won’t let our kids down,” he said. “If a kid needs a scholarship, we’ll find a way to get that kid to play.” Swart said he was concerned because so many soccer players are multi-sport athletes and that some kids have felt the economic pinch in other ways as well. He said several players have had to pick up part-time jobs and aren’t able to make all of the workouts. “It’s a lot more stressful around for all of us, not just the coaches,” he said. “I wish I had the money to pay for all the sports and be done with it so everyone could have that opportunity. It’s frustrating.” Swart said he was looking forward to focusing on getting the team ready for the upcoming season as the program has been steadily improving in recent years.

We’re starting to gain a high level of interest in the progam.” That interest is key to getting more players to come out, which Swart said was important to continue developing the program. Swart said he has one of his

more intelligent groups in terms of classroom performance and that he sees it on the field as well. “They use a tremendous amount of thinking ability,” he said. “This group will work harder and understand a lot more about the game.” Swart said he hopes the num-

He said he doesn’t make cuts and that there’s strong team camaraderie among the girls. “I feel soccer builds a lot of character in kids and we teach the kids using soccer as a way to teach about life,” Swart said.

Row, row, row

The Clermont Crew girls’ quad rowing team, from front, Leslie Siegman, Jo Jeelani, Alexis Wharton and Emma Melton, gets ready to push off at the U.S. Rowing Youth Nationals. This team and the lightweight double team qualified at the Midwest Junior Rowing Championship in May. At nationals, the best crews from all over the country come to Harsha Lake to compete. The Clermont Crew teams trained twice a day to be in the best shape for nationals. Neither team advanced to the finals, but the girls gave their best and ended the season on a high note by competing at nationals. The teams will compete in July in the U.S. Rowing Club Nationals.

In just its second season of competition, the UC Clermont varsity baseball program has established itself as a contender on the national scene. The Cougars finished 23-18-1 overall, qualified for the postseason, placed fourth in the national tournament, and landed individuals on the All-American and AllTournament teams. The Cougars were one of eight teams selected to play in the U.S. Collegiate Athletic Association national championship tournament, May 11-14 in Hampton, Va. The Cougars placed fourth in the tournament. Sophomore catcher and Madeira High School alum Tony Ramirez was named to the AllTournament team. Sophomore first basemen Dominic “Nic” Constanzo, a Mariemont High School product, became the program’s first AllAmerican, making the honorable mention team. “Nic had an outstanding year,” head coach Joe Spriggs said. “He

He really leads by example.” Costanzo was surprised and honored to gain national recognition for his performance this season. He was most pleased with his team’s success in just its second season. “I thought the greatest thing this season was getting to nationals,” Constanzo said. “We have a legitimate shot to get back next year and win the whole thing.” That is the goal for the Cougars, who have recruited from the deep talent pool on Cincinnati’s east side and quickly assembled a skilled and experienced roster. UC Clermont sees itself on a similar level as two other local small colleges, the College of Mount St. Joseph on the west side and Thomas More College in

northern Kentucky. The east side lacked a comparable program until the Cougars began play in 2008. “The east side has kind of been starved for this type of program,” Spriggs said. “There are a lot of good players on this side of town.” Constanzo said it’s a comfortable atmosphere. “Most of the guys have played together or against each other since we were kids,” he said. Being selected to the USCAA national championship and earning individual honors brings the program national and local recognition. The coaching staff aims to build on the success of the 2009 season. The Cougars hope that their success this season will help with recruiting and keep UC Clermont in the discussion of possible 2010 national champions. “We hope this will be a huge help for our recruiting,” assistant coach Dino Constanzo said. “We bring back a strong nucleus next season. Our goal this year was to get to nationals and get noticed, and we want to get back and win a national title.”

LEAD Clermont: ‘The Best Class Ever’ I was at another meeting today with a group discussing Clermont 20/20’s High School Mentoring Program when it happened again. About 10 minutes into the meeting someone made the comment about being in the LEAD Class of 2003, then another chimed in that she was a LEAD grad of the Class of 2008, another immediately commented that he too was a member of the LEAD Class of 2008, and two or three others, myself included, proudly stated our class year along with the standard “Yeah, the Best Class Ever!” Invariably when the statement

of being a LEAD Clermont Grad is made, it is always followed quickly with pride with the comment “The Best Class Ever.” The connection of being a LEAD grad and part of “The Best Class Ever” is something that I’ve gotten more curious about. For example, when you add up all of the years the LEAD Clermont program has existed, Clermont 20/20 has produced more than 400 of the best class of leaders for Clermont County and the region. I can’t honestly tell you what each of the Lead grads is up to these days but I can tell you without hesitation that I run into them

everywhere. It’s a great feeling as the executive director of the organization to see how many people are engaged in the community in so many ways. Whether its time someone can give or taking the lead on an initiative, LEAD grads are alive and well and doing good things for the community. When I think about it, it’s a Linked-In kind of thing. We’re a special group of people who can and should stay connected to each other as we march through our years of service to our professions and community service. More importantly, we veteran leaders need to help the next gen-

eration of leaders find their footing so they can get in position to “take the reins.” This transition doesn’t happen quickly. It takes deliberate effort, financial resources, and often times, courage to keep the needle moving in the right direction. Without leadership the right direction is unlikely to be continuously developed. So I’m proud of the work Clermont 20/20 has accomplished in its first 19 years of service to Clermont County and look with optimism to the challenges that must be overcome in the years ahead. The track record of LEAD Cler-

mont grads clearly indicate that not only will these challenges be met; Andy ingenuity, initiaMcCreanor tive and innovation will reinCommunity force the direcPress guest tion of our columnist future. Thanks to those who have been and will be LEAD Clermont grads. Andy McCreanor is part of the LEAD Clermont Class of 1997, “The Best Class Ever.” He is the executive director of Clermont 20/20.

This month marks the 40th anniversary of man’s first step on the moon. What do you remember about that event? Do you think the U.S. should return to the moon? Why or why not? “Unless we clearly would benefit in someway, or it would advance our knowledge in someway, with the fact we do not have the funds. I would have to object to the increased federal spending, which is already out of control. “My hope is that someday both the Republican and Democrat parties will begin to control spending. Excessive taxation leads to destruction of our financial system. “I continue to hope & pray our local township, city and state officials will begin to lead in our objection and bring government back to sanity.” F.J.B. “I remember it like yesterday, I was 12 years old at summer camp in Green Lake, Wisc., we all gathered so excitedly around a very small black and white TV to watch the first step on the moon. The camp was so primitive I have no idea where they got the TV or power cords to hook it up, but it was such an important event the counselors made sure we all witnessed this. It gave our generation such bright hopes for the future. If a man could ‘walk on the moon’ we could do anything we dreamed to accomplish ourselves. For that wonderful experience, I will be forever grateful.” P.H.S. “I would hope that any return

The International Space Station has already cost $125 billion from various countries. Between that and the recent bailouts I suspect the U.S. could have instead lowered taxes and provided for the legal citizens who need help.

Where were you July 20, 1969? Where were you? I was sitting on the dusty floor of the rec hall at Camp Graham in Clarksville, Ohio, at 4-H camp July 20, 1969. Bob Sutton, our 4-H agent, set up a small black and white television for us to watch the first man walk on the moon. We were able to hear Neil Armstrong say: “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.” I remember we could barely hear anything. The kids in front, closest to the TV, were trying to repeat everything and Bob finally told us all to quiet down and just watch. I remember the day being very hot, but we all bunched around the TV to see the landing. I was 10. I was fascinated by space, which as I learned in later years, so was the rest of the country. Before going to camp, I asked Mom to save all the newspapers so I could read about it once I got home. I made a scrapbook with photos and articles.

I’ve been fascinated by the space shuttle flights, too. I always remember when I started here at the paper. It was the day the Challenger blew up. But, I don’t think the kids today get the same thrill from the shuttle as we did as kids seeing men walk on the moon in those big bulky suits and all the talk about if their lines break they could just float away into space.

From veterinary care to timely vaccinations—and clean and comfortable living conditions to plenty of fresh food and water—healthy, well-cared-for flocks and herds are essential to livestock farming. That’s why it comes as no surprise that Ohio livestock farmers go above and beyond to make sure their animals receive the best possible care.

For an Ohio livestock farmer,

taking animal care seriously just makes sense.

For Ohio livestock farmers, caring for animals is not just a job…

it’s a way of life.

CATCH A STAR

KELLIE GEIST/STAFF

Diana Deimling, a flight nurse with University Hospital Air Care Unit, works to restock the helicopter after a flight. Deimling recently received a Florence Nightingale Award for Excellence in Nursing.

Nurse saves lives, improves programs By Kellie Geist kgeist@communitypress.com

As the only original member of the University Hospital Air Care Unit still in the sky, flight nurse Diana Deimling has dedicated the last 25 years of her life to saving lives. As part of the Air Care team, Deimling works hand-in-hand with the flight physician to stabilize patients and get them to treatment quickly. “It’s a very interesting, challenging job ... It’s important to bring a calm environment to wherever we go. To get there and to say, ‘It’s going to be OK,’” Deimling said. “A flight nurse is someone that can maintain their head while everything around them is chaotic.” In addition to her work in the sky, Deimling, 51, of Union Township, also spends time working with programs like EMS ridealongs and Air Care orientations. Her work in the sky and on the ground earned her the Florence Nightingale Awards for Excellence in Nursing, which was presented in April. Deimling was nominated by Dr. William Hinckley, flight physician and medical director. Deimling and Hinckley

have been on a number of challenging flights together. Deimling recalls one in Union Township where the Air Care team was able to save a mother and her unborn child after a car crash. “When she’s not flying, she’s constantly seeking out ways to make Air Care better,” Hinckley said. “It’s the combination of what she does when she’s flying to save lives and the work she does religiously during her down-time that makes her great.” Deimling said while she was “pleasantly surprised” by the award, she thinks any of the flight nurses could have won. Deimling always wanted to be a nurse. When she was young, she enjoyed caring for the family’s pets. Then, after receiving her nursing degree, she worked in the emergency room and the intensive care unit at University, which eventually led to her job as a flight nurse. “I’d never flown on a helicopter before, but I really liked roller coasters. It’s something you don’t know you’ll like until you try it,” Deimling said. Deimling met her husband, Union Township Fire Chief Stan Deimling, when she was called to transport a patient.

THINGS TO DO

By Kellie Geist, John Seney and Mary Dannemiller clermont@communitypress.com

Whether it’s a refreshing fruit dip or a delicious pie, every family has that one dish they always bring to the family picnics and holiday parties. MomsLikeMe.com has pulled some of the Tristate’s tastiest dishes together for their Summer 2009 cookbook. Of the 63 recipes features in the cookbook, here are some favorites submitted by Clermont County moms. Denise Byrum of New Richmond submitted spaghetti salad as her favorite summer recipe. She originally got the recipe from a friend in graduate school and improved on it to make it her own. ”It’s a healthy and easy to make. I serve it to my family for picnic-like events,” she said. She said everyone in her family likes the spaghetti salad, but she probably likes it more than her husband and son. “My husband is happy if he doesn’t have to cook,” said Byrum, who works at Shriner’s Hospital in Cincinnati. She said she also does a lot of crockpot cooking in the summer. Another Clermont County favorite is Kimberly Maldonado’s Chocolate Chip Cheese Ball. Maldonado, of Batavia, found the basis for this recipe online when she was looking for a dish to take to a picnic. “It was actually a Kathie Lee recipe that I tweaked. Her recipe called for Pecans, but I thought mini chocolate chips sounded better,” Maldonado said. She also increased the amount of powdered sugar in her version of the recipe. Maldonado said once she made the Chocolate Chip Cheese Ball dessert, it was an instant hit. “Every time I go somewhere, people ask for it ... I haven’t found anybody yet that hasn’t liked it,” she said.

Beat cream cheese, butter and vanilla. Add sugars and beat together. Form into a “It kind of tastes like cheesecake. It goes really well with the graham crackers, but once those are gone, people just eat it with a spoon.” Maldonado said the trick to making this dish perfect is to let the butter and cream cheese soften before mixing. She added that while she usually serves it with regular graham cracker sticks, it’s fun to experiment with other dippers and flavors.

Fruit Trifle

1 quart strawberries, thinly sliced 1 pint blueberries 2 teaspoons confectionery sugar 1 3.4 ounce package of French vanilla pudding 1 cup sour cream 1 cup milk 1 prepared pound cake 3 tablespoons orange juice 2 cups whipped cream

Mix berries with confectionery sugar and set aside. In a separate bowl, mix pudding, sour cream and milk until blended. Cut pound cake into thick slices. Using a trifle bowl or deep serving bowl, place a layer of pound cake slices on the bottom. Sprinkle one tablespoon orange juice on the pound cake. Spread 1⁄3 cup of fruit mixture. Repeat steps two more times. Top with whipped cream and a few berries. “It was a dish my mother used to make that became a summer basic for us,” Hammons said. “I even gave up my birthday cake so I could have fruit trifle instead.” Her own children, ages 2 and 4, are too young to enjoy the medley of berries, cream and pound cake, but Hammons hopes to pass the recipe on someday. “They’ll like it more as they get older, they’re just young and particular right now,” she said. “They like to eat the fruit, the pudding and the pound cake all separately.” For more recipes from moms in Clermont County and around the Tristate, pick up a free MomsLikeMe.com cookbook at Bigg’s.

We suppose that if a person we become a philosopher. Thereafter we pose momentous has prestige, wealth, celebrity and popularity that those facts bring questions to ourselves and it takes with them a certain degree of the rest of our lives to answer them. immortality. It’s a sad occurrence when We suppose important people (presuming they are) have a favored people never even let charmed life and are too important themselves get to the questions. Among the questions that arise to lose. Death is supposed to show are ones such as: How should I

live knowing I will die some day? Why love anyone at all if they can be taken away from me, and I from them? Is it better to be cautious and avoid the risk of great love for someone in order to be safe from the heartache of grief? Is there more life after this world’s life that is even more desirable, or is there only disintegration and dry nothingness? Is there a God who created me, loves me, and keeps me alive eternally? The alternative to struggling with questions such as these is to employ certain defenses against the questions ever arising. Hedonism says we can become impervious to death anxiety if we “eat, drink, and be merry.” Denial says, “Just don’t think about it and keep busy.” Agnostic practicality asks,

“Why try to live life wholeheartedly if it will all end?” Ernest Becker acknowledges this strange way of thinking: “The irony of man’s condition is that the deepest need is to be free of the anxiety of death and annihilation; but it is life itself which awakens it, and so we shrink from being fully alive.” Will it help us diminish death anxiety if we draw back from life, from deeply loving, from compassion and enjoyment and closeness to another person? The answer - like so many other answers – is another of life’s paradoxes. Knowing death will come for us some day is the very factor that makes it possible for us to live life now in an authentic fashion. For what is limited is precious, what is plentiful becomes cheap. Knowing our years are limited

urges us to appreciate their preciousness. Death – rather being only a cause of bleak pessimism – ought to be a catalyst to enjoy authentic life modes now. Poet Mary Oliver puts it well: When it’s over, I want to say: all my life I was a bride married to amazement. I was the bridegroom taking the world into my arms. … I don’t want to end up simply having visited this world. Father Lou Guntzelman is a Catholic priest of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati.

Use cash instead of debit to avoid overdraft charges The nation’s banks continue to raise fees on everything from credit cards to checking accounts. Banks say they need the money to make up for losses they incur during this recession. But customers and consumer groups are crying foul. Banks have come under much criticism for making it easy for customers to spend more money than they have in their account so they can assess overdraft fees. People like Bridget Felts of Milford are furious. She received three overdraft charges recently and said it’s

not fair. “This was for a total of a negative $5.90, and they are chargme, Howard Ain ing with one Hey Howard! fee that w a s already taken off, $104 – for $5.90. I was just dumbfounded,” Felts said. Felts’ bank had agreed to drop one charge, but not the other two. “It’s a negative $5.90, from what they’re telling me

because, if you look at the statement, it shows I have money the whole time – it never went negative. But they keep saying, ‘It’s for pending. It’s for pending,’ ” she said. The “pending” charges are for two debit card purchases of less than $5 each. “We budget our biweekly checks to the penny so $104, that’s our grocery money, that’s our gas in our car. It’s devastating. I was literally begging these people to give me my money back,” Felts said. After several calls the bank agreed to return the

fees, but Felts said what happened is wrong. “The punishment should fit the crime. If there’s a negative $5.90 balance, $104 is absurd, it’s absolutely ridiculous … It’s not right. It can take months for families to recoup these losses,” Felts said. “I’m a family of five, every penny counts, and they’re just taking it like, ‘Oh, it’s no big deal,’ ” she said. As with others I’ve seen in this situation, most of the overdraft fees are caused by the use of a debit card. Instead of putting those

small charges on her debit card she could have paid cash, and Felts says she’s now learned her lesson. “Use cash. People need to start using cash more often,” she said. Felts said the government is enacting new credit card laws and should reevaluate what the banks are doing. The Federal Reserve is now deciding whether to crack down on automatic overdraft protection. A rule is expected later this year that would prevent banks from manipulating the order of checks and deb-

its so they maximize overdraft fees. Meanwhile, Congress is also listening to consumers and a proposal there would require banks to tell customers when they are at risk of incurring overdraft fees at an ATM machine or cash register so they can cancel the transaction.

Kids with egg, dairy allergy can still eat cake One of the most fun things about writing this column is the feedback I get from you. No matter where I am, whether it’s the grocery store, Macy’s, teaching a class or speaking to a group, someone comes up and mentions my column. I have Rita a l w a y s Heikenfeld b e l i e v e d Rita’s kitchen t h a t ’ s because this column isn’t just about food: it’s a “place� where we gather each week and share recipes, memories, tips, opinions. A good example of this is Michelle Smith, a New Richmond reader, who requested an eggless cake for son Ethan’s 4th birthday. Clermont County reader Annie Hoffman, a cottage baker, came to the rescue. The bonus is the cake is dairy-free, too.

Annie’s dairy-free, eggless chocolate cake

Annie says, “The kids will love this cake.� Will make 26 cupcakes, a 9-by-13 pan, a 12-by-9 pan or even an 8-by-8 pan. Annie likes to use a 12by-9 pan or 8-by-8 square for thicker cake. Just adjust the baking time: 18 to 20 minutes for cupcakes; start testing cakes about 25 minutes. When toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, it’s done. Don’t overbake. Temperature: 350 degrees for all. 3 cups all purpose flour 2 cups sugar 6 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder 2 teaspoons baking soda 2 teaspoons baking powder 2 ⠄3 cup Canola (she uses Kroger) oil 2 cups water 2 tablespoons white/ clear vinegar 2 teaspoons vanilla Combine dry ingredients

in one bowl. Combine wet ingredients together in one bowl. Mix both together and beat until smooth. Pour into sprayed pan. Annie says cupcakes won’t be very tall but will be very moist.

Dairy-free fluffy frosting

Use vegetable shortening, not Crisco or any shortening that’s non-hydrogenated (Annie says it slides off the cake due to formula change to make it non-hydrogenated – it’s OK for cupcakes but will slide off sides of cake), so use Kroger or other store, generic brand that says vegetable shortening/hydrogenated. See my tip below. Use any flavor extract you like. 1

⠄2 cup vegetable shortening 4 cups powdered sugar, sifted 5 tablespoons water 1 ⠄2 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon vanilla 1 ⠄2 teaspoon almond extract (opt.) 1 ⠄4 teaspoon butter flavoring (Wilton brand since it’s a

clear color) – opt. Put everything in bowl. Mix on low to incorporate. Scrape, then turn on medium for eight minutes. This will incorporate air so don’t skip this step – otherwise you’ll wind up with sugary, not fluffy, frosting. Makes 4 cups. Refrigerates up to six weeks – bring to room temp and rewhip on low. Chocolate: Start adding cocoa powder to taste, and, if necessary, a bit more water. “Makes the fudgiest frosting.�

On the Web

For another good eggless recipe plus tips on making a box cake eggless/dairy-free, log onto my Web version of this column at www.communitypress.com or call 513-591-6163 and leave your name and address.

Tip from Rita’s kitchen

Trouble with shortening: If you’ve experienced trouble with recipes using non-hydrogenated shorten-

ing (that makes it healthier), switch back to hydrogenated. Seems like most trouble is with pie crusts/frostings. I know, I know, hydrogenated shortening is not as healthy as non-hydrogenated but really, it’s not something any of us eat on a daily basis. Annie and I agree you should use what makes your recipes taste and look great. Otherwise, you’re wasting money, time and compromising flavor and appearance.

Like Famous Recipe’s slaw

For Mrs. Whitmer and several others. Go to taste on vinegar, sugar, lemon juice. 1

â „3 cup sugar â „2 teaspoon salt 1 â „8 teaspoon pepper 1 â „4 cup milk 1 â „2 cup mayonnaise 1 â „4 cup buttermilk 11â „2 tablespoons distilled white vinegar 21â „2 tablespoons lemon juice 1

8 cups finely chopped cabbage 1 â „4 cup grated carrots Whisk together sugar, salt, pepper, milk, mayo, buttermilk, vinegar and juice until smooth. Add cabbage and carrots and mix well. Refrigerate at least two hours before serving.

Rooting out recipes

• Anderson Township’s Pelican Reef’s slaw • Precinct’s Mac & Cheese I should know soon if the restaurants can share.

Recipe clairfication

Dreamsicle cake: Some readers are confused as to the Kool-Aid called for in the recipe. It’s 1/4 teaspoon and yes, it’'s dry.

I got down to the hospital and the doctor came in George a r o u n d Rooks 10:45 and Ole seemed to a grin Fisherman have on his face, he said her blood count was 2.09 and she could go home.

Now folks the first day when I left to come home without my gal, it was very hard leaving her there but it was a must. She is doing good. Thanks to the Good Lord and the doctors.

The fishing here at East Fork is good with some fine catches of crappie, catfish and bluegills and a few carp being caught. Now these carp will give a good fight. I didn’t forget about the bass, that takes another type of fishing to

catch them. These bass fishermen have an arsenal of plugs to use. Every Tuesday evening here at East Fork there is a bass tournament and the weigh-in is around 9 p.m. at the Tate Ramp, so stop in and watch it. Also the Boar’s Head Bait Shop in Afton has crappie tournaments two Sundays a month. Their weighin is around 4 p.m. at the Afton side. The garden is starting to grow due to the drier weath-

mum grazing conditions,” said Farley. Among the topics to be covered at grazing school: Pasture plant growth, environmental impacts of grazing, fencing options and mineral supplementation. The cost of the class is $35, which includes a book and a pasture stick. A pasture stick is a little longer than a yard stick and is used to show the amount of forage available per acre, the height of the grass, lines of when to graze the pasture and when to stop. Refreshments will be provided by the Clermont Soil and Water Conservation District. For more information or to register, contact OSU Extension-Clermont at (513) 732-7070. The deadline to register is July 22.

Howdy folks, Well, we lost another good friend to the Lord. This feller was a farmer and a hard worker. He also had a dairy of 40 cows. His wife went to heaven several years ago, so now Henry Stahl joins her. Their farm was next to ours as I was growing up and my brother and I sometimes helped them out. Last Tuesday Ruth Ann was feeling bad so we went to the emergency room at Mercy Hospital Anderson. After a chest cat scan they found she had blood clots in both lungs. After another test they found another one behind her left knee. The doctor seems to think the ones in her lungs came from the one behind her knee. She was admitted to the hospital and it seems they were short of blood, as they took samples from her about every two to three hours! Not really, I’m kidding about the shortage! She was also anemic so they gave her two units of blood and she perked up and had a better color in her face. She was in the hospital from Tuesday until Sunday. Her arms were in bad shape due to the blood being taken, but the ones who took it were very good. The nursing was wonderful. These ladies were so helpful, caring and loving. On Saturday her blood thinning count was 1.34 and it had to be at least 2 before she could be released. I was going to go to church Sunday morning, but I called her and said I was going to come on down to be with her. There were a lot of

If you keep livestock in Clermont County, you will want to attend the Ohio State University (OSU) Extension-Clermont’s Grazing School. “This is a great opportunity to learn how to manage pasture land properly, even when dealing with a small amount of acreage,” said Agriculture/Natural Resources Program Coordinator Latham Farley. The three-part program will be held at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 4; Wednesday, Aug. 5; and Wednesday, Aug. 12, at the Felicity Community Center, 2003 Main St. “We will discuss a variety of different topics each evening, and on the third evening we will take a pasture walk so participants can get a better idea on opti-

A big thank you also goes to the dozens of people who gave monetary gifts, contributed or bid on items for the silent auction, and donated or bought items in the ‘fire’ sale. “We (can’t forget to) thank the Milford Firefighters for the use of their Community Hall,” Gillespie said. Kroger, LaRosa’s, Little Caesar’s, Donato’s, Batelle’s Bakery & Catering, Literacy Council volunteers and the Locust Corner Community Church ladies donated the lunch. International Paper contributed the drinks. The event, although designed as a fundraiser, serves to highlight those organizations that aspire to teach adults to read, to earn their GED, to further their education and to improve their life and those of their families.

wealth wasted. Milbank was a humble man who inspired greatness in others. His extraordinary and life-long concern for youth and those less fortunate has changed the lives of millions and is the inspiration for The Jeremiah Milbank Society. The Jeremiah Milbank Society was established by Boys & Girls Clubs of America as a fitting way to thank and recognize those individuals across the United States who exhibit the same compassionate, caring and humble generosity of spirit as Milbank did in his lifetime. Annual membership in the Jeremiah Milbank Society is for those individuals who make an unrestricted gift to any local Boys & Girls Club of $10,000 or more. The Wilson’s joined the society in 2008 by virtue of their generous contribution of $10,000 to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Clermont County. Their continued support has helped make it possible for young people to receive the guidance, opportunity and encouragement they need to take control of their lives, envision productive futures and reach their goals.

I’m looking forward to next year’s bee already. The fun competition should be even greater at Spelling Bee 2010.” Literacy Council Director Susan Vilardo agreed. “We had an exceptional group of spellers.” (All three winning teams spelled their way into the top three at last year’s bee.) Altogether, 13 teams participated in the bee, which is the Literacy Council’s major fundraising event each year. The event took place at the Firefighters Hall

County offers good health booklet to improve fitness

Humane Society needs your help in Clermont Co. If you’ve ever adopted an animal from the Clermont County Humane Society, you know the love you give is returned tenfold. Thousands of unwanted and abused dogs and cats come into the shelter each year. “Ohio law dictates that dogs need only be held for three days, presenting shelter staff with difficult decisions,” said Clermont County Animal Shelter Director Kim Naegel. “Due to the fundraising efforts of our Humane Society volunteers and the generosity of our community, we are able to keep animals longer, and also provide a protected place for unwanted cats, kittens, and occasionally other small animals, which is not a state requirement.” Community support is urgently needed to continue to keep animals longer, provide refuge for cats, and operate the Adoption Center and after-hours emergency run program. “The revenue collected through the sale of dog licenses provides for the staffing and operation of the animal control operation. It does not provide for the Adoption Center or after-hours program. Without the volunteers and monetary contributions from the community, the level of service would be greatly diminished,” said Naegel. “We want to ensure that every healthy animal is given every opportunity to find a forever home.” One way to support the shelter is to become a member of the Clermont County Humane Society. A student can join for only $15 a year, an annual membership is $30, corporate membership is $150, and a lifetime membership is $250. Members receive a newsletter updating them on shelter activities and legislation pertaining to animals. Call 732-8854 or visit the Web site www.ClermontAnimalShelter.org.

Somerset, Kentucky’s Premiere Inn Located Just Minutes from Lake Cumberland

There is a joke among friends here, “It’s a Phoenix that has risen from the ashes. ”When Charles and Allison Hahn Sobieck purchased the property at 502 North Main Street (in Somerset, Kentucky), there was a lot of work to be done, to say the least. With the vision of a B & B and a home in ruins, there were little choices. The dilapidated structure was removed, then reconstructed as it had been in the 1850’s. It’s a brand new home. A bit of an unusual concept for a bed and breakfast. “We reconstructed the home from scratch. This gave us the benefit of designing every amenity possible along the way, ”said Allison Sobieck, owner. Every room is equipped with many amenities you don’t often find in a traditional bed and breakfast, but rather a fine hotel. Every room has a full sized closet with a pair of micro-fiber robes hanging in them, 400- count Egyptian cotton sheets, cable TV with DVD players, queen sized beds, and a host of other things. For instance, 2 rooms have gas fireplaces and 3 rooms have whirlpool tubs. We even offer many add on amenities such as massage, dinner, flowers, etc…

The rooms are only half of the reason to come to The Doolin House. Owners Charles and Allison just happen to both be chefs. Some of the breakfast specialties include Caramel Banana French Toast and Southern Eggs Benedict (2 fried green tomatoes topped with 2 slices of smoked bacon, 2 eggs over easy and Hollandaise). Chuck is usually in charge of breakfast and tries to do new and different things every day. Chef Chuck pointed out, “It’s fun to experiment with breakfast. It’s the one meal that encompasses all foods. It’s perfectly acceptable to see smoked salmon or a pork cutlet at the breakfast table. ”For those in no rush to rise and shine, breakfast in bed is served at no additional charge. When you need a weekend get away that’s not too far from home or you are planning your summer vacation to beautiful Lake Cumberland, remember that The Doolin House Bed and Breakfast is only a phone call away.

Fabulous floors

Freshening floors doesn’t have to be an expensive or time-consuming task. Carpets will benefit from a simple deep cleaning – something you should be doing seasonally anyway to preserve their beauty and extend their usable lives. For tile, stone or hardwoods, follow the manufacturer’s recommendations for cleaning and maintenance and make the process part of your seasonal cleaning routine. Another great way to dress up floors, either indoors or out, is to add a splash of color with an area rug.

No wall flowers

Walls are the largest space element in your room decor, and brightening them for the season can be as easy as switching out the artwork or adding a fresh coat of paint. Start with a neutral wall

tributes to how your home looks and feels, and the light entering from outdoors changes with the season and time of day. With longer days and more sun in summer, you may find you need synthetic light less for visibility and more for ambiance. Summer is a great time to add dimmers to a dining room or bedroom, add an eye-catching overhead fixture, or give bright lights a break in favor of subtly placed table or floor lamps.

Don’t forget that the same design principles you use to create a wonderful indoor environment can apply outdoors as well. Update your outdoor spaces with area rugs designed for beauty and durability.

Summer is also a great time to add a decorative mirror, since drapes and windows are often open to welcome in the sunlight and bright sky. Adding a mirror on the wall opposite a window is a great way to reflect sunlight throughout the room and make a small space appear more expansive.

Specializing in the Healing of Vascular, Venous, Diabetic, Surgical, Pressure and Complex Wounds

riple Creek Retirement Community, in Colerain Township, is a newly constructed continuing care retirement community featuring skilled nursing and assisted living services in a Town Square model health care facility. The Town Square design allows residents to maximize their independence, while creating a more home-like, less institutional atmosphere. It features a predominance of private rooms and has living areas designed as a neighborhood, creating a sense of community for each resident. There are also 28 independent living villas placed around the campus allowing a full continuum of senior living options for residents – from those who need little assistance to those with

very complex medical needs. The campus also features flexibility and choice in resident food selection. Open breakfast is served

that their favorite family recipes be included in the campuses’ menus. Caregivers at Triple Creek have a consistent assignment of several res-

“Residents make their meal selections from a menu of alternatives prepared by executive chefs, and meals are served on china …” from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. daily, and a complimentary monthly Sunday Brunch is offered for residents and their families. Bread and hamburger buns are made fresh daily. Residents make their meal selections from a menu of alternatives prepared by executive chefs, and meals are served on china from steam tables that are set up in the campuses’ dining rooms. Residents can also request

idents. The caregiver is responsible for providing primary care, light housekeeping, as well as socialization for the residents in their “neighborhood.” This approach creates a partnership in care between the caregiver and resident in a setting that respects and honors the requests of the residents.

In choosing the right retirement community for your loved one, be sure to check all the options

S

electing a senior community for a parent or loved one can be an overwhelming task. There are a wide variety of choices and it’s best to spend some time understanding your options before making a choice. Your first step should be to learn the terminology. The types of services and acronyms in retirement communities are often confusing to consumers. It helps make your decision-making process easier if you understand the terms used by industry professionals before you head out. Refer to the www.icargiver.org Web site to learn all of the industry vocabulary. Next, do some research on what type of facility you will want to tour. Are you looking for full nursing care or assisted living? Or are you looking for independent living with the option for more care in the future?

Once you have narrowed these options, it’s time to take the tour. To get started, call the marketing office and schedule a time to meet with a community representative. Try to arrive 15 minutes prior to your scheduled tour time so that you are able to observe what is going on before your guided tour. Be prepared to take notes and ask plenty of questions. Once the tour is complete, ask to sit down with the marketing representative to go over your questions that were not addressed during the tour.

facilities and services for the aging within the triState area which allows those we serve to thrive in a safe, stimulating, and dignified environment,” says Community Director Becky Schulte. According to Schulte it is important to provide a variety of living options to older adults because everyone has different likes and dislikes. “We believe that you should make this move and change your address, not your lifestyle,” she says. “We want to offer all the facilities, amenities and services to make this time in life the easiest and most fun possible.” Joan Reckseit who has lived in the newly-built Kensington Place, Maple Knoll’s new deluxe apartment complex, since last October, says moving was one of the best decisions she has made. “There are a number of things that I enjoy here,” she says. “They have a large variety of activities (on and off campus), enough to suit anyone’s pace.” She loves the opportunity to meet new people too. “I still have my old friends and I’ve made many new friends,” she says. “I enjoy my new friends. The people here are very friendly and easy to get to know.” She also loves her apartment – the “grand” view of a pond; the floor plan she picked herself; and the location.

Redefining the nursing home experience

A

sk someone what comes to mind when they think of a traditional nursing home and descriptions like “institutional, impersonal, and hospital-like,” are often mentioned. In the past there were no alternative models available for people in Cincinnati, but that has now changed dramatically. Imagine a nursing home where you feel like you are at home and not in a home; where you are on your own schedule just like you’ve always been. Where maintaining dignity is among the highest priorities and the skilled nursing care and therapy are second to none. Imagine a nursing home that doesn’t look or feel like one. Where there are no nurses’ stations or medicine carts, but rather a hearth room, open kitchen, den, and “spa.” If that sounds like the nursing home of the future, it is and there is one opening this summer right here in Cincinnati. Nestled off Erie Avenue on the Deupree House retirement community campus close to Hyde Park are The Deupree Cottages, which were just built on two

acres of land. It is a “person-centered care” facility for seniors that takes an entirely different approach to care-giving for elders. “‘Person-centered care’ is both a state of mind and a statement of design,” explains Laura Lamb, vice president of residential housing and health care for Episcopal Retirement Homes. “It’s a philosophical approach to retirement community care that honors and respects the voice of elders and those working closest with them. It involves a continuing process of listening, trying new things, seeing how they

Fact about the Deupree Cottages • Located at 3999 Erie Ave. in Oakley, Deupree Cottages sit on 2.1 acres that border the popular Deupree House retirement community. • Deupree Cottages are made up of two households, each home to 12 seniors. Each cottage includes two suites, perfect for couples or for individuals preferring more personal space. • Services and capabilities include 24-hour supportive care; skilled nursing services, including short-term rehabilitation and long-term care, and physical, occupational, and

speech therapy; a chaplaincy program; and wellness initiatives, including access to a heated, indoor therapy pool and fitness equipment at Deupree House. • Owned and operated by Episcopal Retirement Homes which for more than 50 years has been a not-for-profit, financially sound organization dedicated to improving the lives of older adults through innovative, quality living environments and older adult services delivered by highly experienced and deeply committed professionals.

There’s a front door with a doorbell, and the windows actually open. The cottages will serve two separate households with 10 bedrooms and two suites, each with its own bathroom. “I don’t define your purpose, and you don’t define mine,” Lamb says of the Deupree Cottages’ philosophy. She hastens to add that residents will dictate the rhythm of life and it’s they who will pursue what’s meaningful to them, choosing from a blank canvas of possibilities. Whether it’s involvement in work, and changing things in an an organization, practicing a effort to individualize care and hobby or spending time with a de-institutionalize the environfamily member, it’s the senior ment. “We’re extremely excited about who will choose.

Pools,hot tubs – a fun way to stay fit

S

wimming pools and hot tubs are just plain fun, but many people overlook the health benefits. Just about anyone, regardless of age or physical condition, can gain health benefits from swimming. Swimming as a regular form of exercise can cut males’ risk of death by 50 percent as compared to runners, walkers and those with a sedentary lifestyle, according to a recent study by Dr. Steven N. Blair of the Arnold School for Public Health at the University of South Carolina. Blair found similar health and fit-

ness benefits in an earlier study for women as well. Regular laps in the pool can help tone the muscles in your entire body, lower blood pressure, increase circulation and raise metabolism and endurance. Because humans weigh less in the water, people who can’t participate in other forms of exercise because of injuries or excess weight can swim safely. And swimming is a fun and interesting workout that keeps people coming back for more. And, after a long session in the pool, or a long day at work,

what could be better than time spent relaxing in a hot tub? The steamy, swirling waters of a hot tub provide a great place to loosen up and even to socialize, but can also lower your blood pressure and decrease joint pain and swelling. Additionally, the combination of heat, buoyancy and massage in a hot tub can provide therapeutic benefits for those with arthritis, diabetes, insomnia and more.

the Hot Tub Council of the Association of Pool and Spa Professionals found significant recuperative benefits for knee replacement patients who performed their physical therapy in warm water. When you make an investment in a home pool or hot tub, you’re not only potentially increasing the value of your home and making your house the most popular on the block, you’re increasing the length and quality of your life.

Fabulous floors

Freshening floors doesn’t have to be an expensive or time-consuming task. Carpets will benefit from a simple deep cleaning – something you should be doing seasonally anyway to preserve their beauty and extend their usable lives. For tile, stone or hardwoods, follow the manufacturer’s recommendations for cleaning and maintenance and make the process part of your seasonal cleaning routine. Another great way to dress up floors, either indoors or out, is to add a splash of color with an area rug.

No wall flowers

Walls are the largest space element in your room decor, and brightening them for the season can be as easy as switching out the artwork or adding a fresh coat of paint. Start with a neutral wall

tributes to how your home looks and feels, and the light entering from outdoors changes with the season and time of day. With longer days and more sun in summer, you may find you need synthetic light less for visibility and more for ambiance. Summer is a great time to add dimmers to a dining room or bedroom, add an eye-catching overhead fixture, or give bright lights a break in favor of subtly placed table or floor lamps.

Outdoor lifestyle

Don’t forget that the same design principles you use to create a wonderful indoor environment can apply outdoors as well. Update your outdoor spaces with area rugs designed for beauty and durability.

Summer is also a great time to add a decorative mirror, since drapes and windows are often open to welcome in the sunlight and bright sky. Adding a mirror on the wall opposite a window is a great way to reflect sunlight throughout the room and make a small space appear more expansive.

Specializing in the Healing of Vascular, Venous, Diabetic, Surgical, Pressure and Complex Wounds

riple Creek Retirement Community, in Colerain Township, is a newly constructed continuing care retirement community featuring skilled nursing and assisted living services in a Town Square model health care facility. The Town Square design allows residents to maximize their independence, while creating a more home-like, less institutional atmosphere. It features a predominance of private rooms and has living areas designed as a neighborhood, creating a sense of community for each resident. There are also 28 independent living villas placed around the campus allowing a full continuum of senior living options for residents – from those who need little assistance to those with

very complex medical needs. The campus also features flexibility and choice in resident food selection. Open breakfast is served

that their favorite family recipes be included in the campuses’ menus. Caregivers at Triple Creek have a consistent assignment of several res-

“Residents make their meal selections from a menu of alternatives prepared by executive chefs, and meals are served on china …” from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. daily, and a complimentary monthly Sunday Brunch is offered for residents and their families. Bread and hamburger buns are made fresh daily. Residents make their meal selections from a menu of alternatives prepared by executive chefs, and meals are served on china from steam tables that are set up in the campuses’ dining rooms. Residents can also request

idents. The caregiver is responsible for providing primary care, light housekeeping, as well as socialization for the residents in their “neighborhood.” This approach creates a partnership in care between the caregiver and resident in a setting that respects and honors the requests of the residents.

In choosing the right retirement community for your loved one, be sure to check all the options

S

electing a senior community for a parent or loved one can be an overwhelming task. There are a wide variety of choices and it’s best to spend some time understanding your options before making a choice. Your first step should be to learn the terminology. The types of services and acronyms in retirement communities are often confusing to consumers. It helps make your decision-making process easier if you understand the terms used by industry professionals before you head out. Refer to the www.icargiver.org Web site to learn all of the industry vocabulary. Next, do some research on what type of facility you will want to tour. Are you looking for full nursing care or assisted living? Or are you looking for independent living with the option for more care in the future?

Once you have narrowed these options, it’s time to take the tour. To get started, call the marketing office and schedule a time to meet with a community representative. Try to arrive 15 minutes prior to your scheduled tour time so that you are able to observe what is going on before your guided tour. Be prepared to take notes and ask plenty of questions. Once the tour is complete, ask to sit down with the marketing representative to go over your questions that were not addressed during the tour.

facilities and services for the aging within the triState area which allows those we serve to thrive in a safe, stimulating, and dignified environment,” says Community Director Becky Schulte. According to Schulte it is important to provide a variety of living options to older adults because everyone has different likes and dislikes. “We believe that you should make this move and change your address, not your lifestyle,” she says. “We want to offer all the facilities, amenities and services to make this time in life the easiest and most fun possible.” Joan Reckseit who has lived in the newly-built Kensington Place, Maple Knoll’s new deluxe apartment complex, since last October, says moving was one of the best decisions she has made. “There are a number of things that I enjoy here,” she says. “They have a large variety of activities (on and off campus), enough to suit anyone’s pace.” She loves the opportunity to meet new people too. “I still have my old friends and I’ve made many new friends,” she says. “I enjoy my new friends. The people here are very friendly and easy to get to know.” She also loves her apartment – the “grand” view of a pond; the floor plan she picked herself; and the location.

Redefining the nursing home experience

A

sk someone what comes to mind when they think of a traditional nursing home and descriptions like “institutional, impersonal, and hospital-like,” are often mentioned. In the past there were no alternative models available for people in Cincinnati, but that has now changed dramatically. Imagine a nursing home where you feel like you are at home and not in a home; where you are on your own schedule just like you’ve always been. Where maintaining dignity is among the highest priorities and the skilled nursing care and therapy are second to none. Imagine a nursing home that doesn’t look or feel like one. Where there are no nurses’ stations or medicine carts, but rather a hearth room, open kitchen, den, and “spa.” If that sounds like the nursing home of the future, it is and there is one opening this summer right here in Cincinnati. Nestled off Erie Avenue on the Deupree House retirement community campus close to Hyde Park are The Deupree Cottages, which were just built on two

acres of land. It is a “person-centered care” facility for seniors that takes an entirely different approach to care-giving for elders. “‘Person-centered care’ is both a state of mind and a statement of design,” explains Laura Lamb, vice president of residential housing and health care for Episcopal Retirement Homes. “It’s a philosophical approach to retirement community care that honors and respects the voice of elders and those working closest with them. It involves a continuing process of listening, trying new things, seeing how they

Fact about the Deupree Cottages • Located at 3999 Erie Ave. in Oakley, Deupree Cottages sit on 2.1 acres that border the popular Deupree House retirement community. • Deupree Cottages are made up of two households, each home to 12 seniors.

speech therapy; a chaplaincy program; and wellness initiatives, including access to a heated, indoor therapy pool and fitness equipment at Deupree House. • Owned and operated by Episcopal Retirement Homes which for more than 50 years has been a not-for-profit, financially sound organization dedicated to improving the lives of older adults through innovative, quality living environments and older adult services delivered by highly experienced and deeply committed professionals.

There’s a front door with a doorbell, and the windows actually open. The cottages will serve two separate households with 10 bedrooms and two suites, each with its own bathroom. “I don’t define your purpose, and you don’t define mine,” Lamb says of the Deupree Cottages’ philosophy. She hastens to add that residents will dictate the rhythm of life and it’s they who will pursue what’s meaningful to them, choosing from a blank canvas of possibilities. Whether it’s involvement in work, and changing things in an an organization, practicing a effort to individualize care and hobby or spending time with a de-institutionalize the environfamily member, it’s the senior ment. “We’re extremely excited about who will choose.

That’s according to Rome Hughes, author of, “East of Cincinnati, North and South of Nowhere,” published by Xlibris. And that’s just what he hopes to do with his story about the devastating murder of a homosexual man, inspired by actual events in Hughes’ own community. The names of characters and the actual location have been changed. Hughes says his book, for adults, gives insight into the prejudice and injustice plaguing our daily lives. “Hopefully when people read the story they’ll understand what people

Pools,hot tubs – a fun way to stay fit

S

wimming pools and hot tubs are just plain fun, but many people overlook the health benefits. Just about anyone, regardless of age or physical condition, can gain health benefits from swimming. Swimming as a regular form of exercise can cut males’ risk of death by 50 percent as compared to runners, walkers and those with a sedentary lifestyle, according to a recent study by Dr. Steven N. Blair of the Arnold School for Public Health at the University of South Carolina. Blair found similar health and fit-

ness benefits in an earlier study for women as well. Regular laps in the pool can help tone the muscles in your entire body, lower blood pressure, increase circulation and raise metabolism and endurance. Because humans weigh less in the water, people who can’t participate in other forms of exercise because of injuries or excess weight can swim safely. And swimming is a fun and interesting workout that keeps people coming back for more. And, after a long session in the pool, or a long day at work,

what could be better than time spent relaxing in a hot tub? The steamy, swirling waters of a hot tub provide a great place to loosen up and even to socialize, but can also lower your blood pressure and decrease joint pain and swelling. Additionally, the combination of heat, buoyancy and massage in a hot tub can provide therapeutic benefits for those with arthritis, diabetes, insomnia and more. A recent study supervised by the Foundation for Physical Therapy and funded in part by

Communitypress.com

the Hot Tub Council of the Association of Pool and Spa Professionals found significant recuperative benefits for knee replacement patients who performed their physical therapy in warm water. When you make an investment in a home pool or hot tub, you’re not only potentially increasing the value of your home and making your house the most popular on the block, you’re increasing the length and quality of your life.
