BECAUSE COMMUNITY MATTERS

Grant sought to upgrade Plane Street By John Seney jseney@communitypress.com

BETHEL — Village officials applied for a state grant to pay for improvements to Plane Street. Council members at a special meeting Aug. 7 authorized Administrator Travis Dotson to apply for an Ohio Public Works Commission grant. Dotson said the grant would pay for renovations to Plane Street including the installation of new curbs, gutters, sidewalks and lighting. He said it will be awhile before village officials find out if they will get the grant or how much they will receive. “It will be a couple of years before we get anything,” Dotson said.

Bethel renews solicitor’s contract By John Seney jseney@communitypress.com

BETHEL — Village council members July 26 voted to renew for a year the contract of Solicitor Julia Carney. Carney, who works for the Cincinnati law firm of Manley Burke, LPA, was hired in August 2011 to replace George Leicht, who resigned after serving as village solicitor for 33 years. The solicitor provides legal advice for village officials. Carney will be paid an annual base retainer of $24,600, said Fiscal Officer Bill Gilpin. “Julia is worth her weight in gold,” said council member Donna Gunn. Gunn said Carney provided valuable contributions recently in dealing with an annexation petition and helping formulate the village’s response to issues associated with the Asian longhorned beetle infestation.

“We’re excited to get the process started,” said Mayor Alan Ausman. “It’s not an immediate thing. It’s something we’d like to see done. I’m proud of Travis for get-

ting it going.” Members of a recentlyformed Bethel Business Association have been urging village officials to upgrade Plane Street and the downtown area. Ausman said he attended the Aug. 6 meeting of the association and informed the members about the village’s plans to apply for the state grant. “They were excited we were applying for the OPWC grant,” he said.

Boosters seek to increase involvement

CAR SHOW

By Roxanna Blevins rblevins@communitypress.com

BETHEL — The Fighting Tiger Boosters are gearing up for the upcoming school year, and they are open to new members. Currently, the group consists of four parents of Bethel-Tate student athletes, but Treasurer Tammy Newberry hopes to see more participation. “The more members and participation we get the easier it is to raise money,” Newberry said. The group, which formed in 2011, helps raise money for the district’s athletics programs for grades 7-12. “There’s a lot of fundraising that goes into it,” Newberry said. During the 2011-2012 school year, the boosters raised funds by hosting a yard sale, a fishing tourna-

ment and a Volley for the Cure game. The group also sold Little Caesar’s Pizza Kits and McDonald’s coupons. In the school year to come, members plan to focus efforts on raising money through events more than selling things. One of the events is a Youth Night for younger children to meet the athletes. The group plans to make posters of each athletic team for the children. The teammates will be available to sign the posters. “The idea is to get them more involved and to let people know if they help the boosters, the boosters will help them,” said Secretary Tina Crumpton. In October, the boosters plan to host a donkey basketball game. The funds raised by the group help pay for a variety

of the teams’ expenses, including athletic equipment, free T-shirts, footballs and basketballs for players and a scholarship fund for students who cannot afford to play. Each year, the first $25,000 the boosters raise goes to the school; $15,000 is designated for coaches; and $5,000 is for uniforms, which are replaced on a rotation schedule. The remaining $5,000 is for participation fees. The boosters have about $10,000 to start off the school year, but Newberry said the group has not bought concession supplies. The group is in the process of purchasing a new hot dog machine, bun warmer and ice machine, said Crumpton. The group meets at 7 p.m. the second Monday of every month at Bethel-Tate High School.

FIRST PASS AT HIGH SCHOOL SOCCER: PREVIEW 2012

Lady Cardinals, Tigers lace up the cleats By Scott Springer sspringer@communitypress.com

BETHEL — The girls of autumn are ready for action on the soccer field, even though many have been in training all summer long and already have preview games under their belts. Bethel-Tate’s girls were 5-8-3 (1-6-3 SBC-American) in 2011 under sixth-year coach Brenda Woodward. The Lady Tigers are led by seniors Taylor Atkins, Miranda Anter and Alex Shinkle. Atkins was a first-team pick last fall, with Anter and Shinkle making second team. Seniors Morgan Calhoun, Taylor Robinson and Courtney Riley are also back to lead the younger players who hope to give BethelTate some depth. “We’ve got a few juniors that played JV last year that we’re looking at to give supportive play for us,” Woodward said. “We also have a large freshman group.” Woodward kept her girls busy during the summer with some camps, including Xavier coach Jack Herman’s camp and a lot of running. “We actually picked up trail running this summer,” Woodward said. “Hopefully we’ll avoid a lot of the injuries. We’ve done a lot of pre-injury conditioning and fitness with them.” Two of the Lady Tigers should be in tip-top shape as Morgan Calhoun and Ashley Hennies double as cross country runners for Bethel-Tate. “We’ll just kind of work a little bit with each other’s schedules,” Woodward said. “In the past, that’s worked pretty well.” In the league, Woodward looks for vast improvement over last season’s disappointing one win. “We lost two seniors, but we’ve got a better cohesive field this year in overall skill and teamwork,” Woodward said. “New Richmond will come in strong and Batavia won’t be too bad.” Bethel-Tate’s boys and girls begin the season Aug. 20 against Purcell Marian. The Felicity-Franklin girls were also second in the National division under coach Amber Chandler with a 5-2-1 finish (75-2). The Lady Cardinals also finished behind Batavia. Similar to the boys, Chandler’s group lost many talented seniors

but do return second-team allleague selections Arica Stutz, a senior, and junior Kelsey Arkenau. Also coming back are starting juniors Lexi Faubion and Crissy Pankow. Beyond that, the Lady Cardinals are young. “We have a squad of 19,” Chandler said. “We had 19 last year. We don’t have a JV. We lost a big group, but we’ve done it before and we’ve been fine. They’re gelling well.” In her 13th year, Chandler has seen soccer progress to the point where the girls are winning. “When I first started, we were bottom of the barrel,” Chandler said. “We were not a team that was in contention at all for years. After four years, my first graduating class got about six wins. It didn’t take us long after that to gain respect in the league.” Chandler teaches at the elementary school in the district where she tries to leave a positive impression on would-be future players. This year’s crop begins play Aug. 22 against Eastern. “If we can go with no injuries, unlike last year when we had big concussions, we can be a pretty competitive team,” Chandler said. The McNicholas High School Lady Rockets return this fall a battle-tested squad. Many key players on this year’s team were a part of teams who reached regionals in 2010 and 2011, and head coach Karen Wood is hopeful those games will serve as extra motivation as the Lady Rockets kickoff a new season. At forward, junior Savannah Carmosino returns after netting 15 scores a season ago. Carmosino was named second-team allstate for her efforts. Fellow junior Liz Wittwer, as well as senior Alex Lang, should shore up center midfield, while seniors Maria Clark and Alexis Burdick will attempt to stop opposing offenses from getting shots on senior goalie Alli Thul. Thul has 22 career shutouts, according to Wood. In 2011, she earned first-team all-district recognition after stopping 86 shots and recording 13 shutouts. The Rockets look to mend their broken hearts with their season opener against Loveland Aug. 20.

Soccer fields busy in Bethel, Felicity By Scott Springer sspringer@communitypress.com

BETHEL — Preliminary practices and games have been underway at the area high schools in soccer with season beginning soon in the Southern Buckeye Conference. At Bethel-Tate, the boys soccer team coached by Dave Schellenberger was third in the SBCAmerican division last season at 5-3-2 (8-4-3 overall). Top returners for the Tigers are seniors Tyler Atkins and Jacob Fischer, both second team all-league picks, and senior Nick Taggert. “I have about nine seniors on our team this year, some of them it’s their first time ever coming out,” Schellenberger said. Atkins and fellow senior Nick Marshall just returned to the team after a summer of baseball. Schellenberger will rely on Atkins to score and Marshall to play defense. “He looks really good at the stopper spot for me,” he said. “We were thinking of him as a keeper, but he’s playing so well on the field. The key is he’s always around the ball and he can kick the ball.” Besides Atkins, Schellenberger looks for scoring from sophomore Jason Altmayer, who missed his last year with a hamstring injury. “He ran track for me in the 200 meters and he’s pretty quick,” Schellenberger said. “He’s got a great touch and I think he’s going to help Atkins up front.” The Tigers also will share some athletes as seniors Ashton Hutchinson and Jason Adams and sophomore Zane Copestick run cross country when not kicking the round ball. Adams could be Bethel-Tate’s

MELANIE LAUGHMAN/THE COMMUNITY PRESS goalkeeper as Schellenberger had yet to determine that position at presstime. In the league, Schellenberger thinks the top four spots could be between Amelia, New Richmond, newcomer Norwood and the Tigers. The Bethel-Tate boys and girls begin against Purcell Marian Aug. 20. “I like the way we’re playing right now,” Schellenberger said. “The kids have always been there for conditioning and practices. We have a really good group of kids all the time. We just sometimes can’t compete with some of these other schools that have so many more numbers.” Felicity-Frankin’s boys are coming off a second-place finish in the SBC-National division where they finished behind undefeated Batavia at 4-2 (9-6-1 overall). Coach Vicki Wehrum lost several key all-league seniors but does return first-team pick Bradlee Prather. Clayton Wehrum and Jake Jones were top 10 in the Cincinnati area in scoring last season,

but both have graduated. Felicity-Franklin’s boys and girls begin the season against Eastern Aug. 22. On Beechmont Avenue, the McNicholas High School Rockets will trot a youthful squad onto the field as the team attempts to avenge its first losing season in five years. The Rockets were 7-8-4 overall last fall, but posted a 4-1-2 record in the GCL Central and finished miles ahead of secondplace Badin (1-5-1). And while the group might not most be the most experienced, head coach Tony Ripberger believes his boys are determined. Players with big impact potential include midfielder Patrick Henry, defender Tony Losekamp and forward Christian Null. Midfielder Matt Forshoefel, as well as defenders Robbie Kump, Grady Garrison and Trevor Hogue will be at the forefront as the Rockets try and better last season’s record. McNicholas starts its season against Loveland Aug. 23.

Ruling leaves decision to voters On June 28th, the Supreme Court rendered a decision on legal challenges to the individual mandate requirement written into Affordable Care Act of 2010. The majority decision, penned by Chief Justice John Roberts, affirmed one very important principle and confirmed several obvious facts. Facts. Roberts and the majority justices confirmed that our President, the community organizer, the Harvard educated guy - actually understands law and the constitution. Likewise, the Supremes branded as fools an army of self-appointed constitutional experts aligned with America’s conservative movement. Prior to the ruling, conservative op-ed commentators created a successful media campaign on the supposedly

un-constitutional individual mandate. Political operatives in the Republican Party hoped that public Rich Jordan opinion against COMMUNITY PRESS the Affordable GUEST COLUMNIST Care Act might influence the court. Thankfully, the justices did not buckle and in the end, the right’s political tactics were revealed as bogus. Our justices remain independent. Also, the court’s ruling affirmed as true that individuals who choose not to purchase health insurance are placing an undue burden on taxpayers and the insured by not paying until they are sick. These free riders,

individuals who refuse to support the system, benefit from laws that guarantee healthcare to all as they shift the cost of their coverage upon participating citizens. Starting in 2014, the ACA will likely end the practice of declaring bankruptcy from your hospital bed. When fully implemented, the law will not require anyone to purchase insurance, however if you choose to shift your burden of cost to others, you’ll pay a tax penalty. Seems like a reasonable measure to me. It is important to note that the tax provisions of the ACA were upheld. In this regard, the court recognized that the country is having a political argument about the ACA and that the law’s fate is best left to voters. Friends, the endless fight we’ve

been having about “Obamacare” is nothing more than the same old right versus left war over taxes. The court has affirmed that government has the power to tax and has instructed the nation to battle this out on Election Day. Politics is about fighting for your own economic interests. As a Democratic Party activist, I’m prepared to continue the fight for a healthcare system where voters make the rules. Because of the Affordable Care Act insurance companies no longer decide who has coverage. Pre-existing conditions are no longer a barrier to coverage. Since enactment, 2.5 million young adults up to age 26 have been insured through their parent’s health plans. Senior citizens covered by

Constitution does not Summer Olympics allow many programs celebrated by seniors I grew up with the space program. In 1960, I followed the arc of the Echo I balloon-satellite across the night sky, and have happily followed many of the manned flights Mercury through the Space Shuttle. Natural science was my thing, enjoying amateur astronomy, weather forecasting and “ham” radio. I even volunteered at the Cincinnati Zoo following a year’s college-level coursework at the Zoo via UC. The recent touchdown on Mars by the “Curiosity” rover truly is a triumph of engineering, amazing especially to a verbal door and hardware salesperson like myself who has difficulty understanding the intricacies of a lock set. All at NASA, the Jet Propulsion Laboratory and the contractors deserve congratulations and praise for this accomplishment. I love it. So for me to characterize such space exploration by NASA as wrong, or even evil, goes against my natural inclinations. But wrong I believe it is. And Curiosity’s $2.6-billion price tag is a bit painful, too. When the Constitutional Convention was concluding in 1787, a lady asked the departing Benjamin Franklin, what kind of government have you given us? Franklin responded, “A Republic, madam, if you can keep it.” A constitutional republic simply is the “rule of law” codified in a written document, a contract between the government established in that contract and “we, the people,” who created it. This “rule of law” set up by the Founders was a new thing in a world that knew only the capriciousness of “rule by men” (e.g. the “divine right of kings”). While finding ready support in Con-

gress and by the electorate, programs like Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, the Federal Reserve, farm subsidies, national parks, Obamacare, pre-emptive war, federal student Randy Kleine loans, scientific reCOMMUNITY PRESS search, and NASA vioGUEST COLUMNIST late both the letter and intent of the Constitution. Even if these are “good” ideas, they are not properly within the delegated jurisdiction of the federal government. One can argue that spy and communications satellites and missiles are a legitimate expense for national defense, but not voyages to Mars - it’s unlikely that Martians will attack us anytime soon. One can argue the benefits of unconstitutional federal activities and expenditures. But do expected outcomes determine what is right to do, or should moral rightness determine outcomes? Do “the ends justify the means” (a phrase coined by Machiavelli, a proponent of “might makes right”), or do “the means justify the ends?” In this age of materialism, humanism, relativism, pragmatism, situational ethics and the worship of power and celebrity, I recognize that I am spitting into the wind. Have we reverted to a lawless, pre-Constitution era when all that matters is “what works” and where the individual is at the mercy of the collective? I long for a time when I can again gaze at the night sky unworried by bankruptcy by unconstitutional federal ventures.

I, like practically everyone else, kept my eyes glued to the TV screen (or computer) hours on end watching the Summer Olympics. I did break away long enough to participate in two unique Olympic-style games. One, with my grandchildren, Gia and Gabe, and their neighborhood friends, and the other with dozens of seniors and staff members at the LBD Welcome Center, operated by Clermont Senior Services. I grew up watching the Olympics; I prefer the winter games. My sisters and I loved figure skating and would pretend we were competing in our own Campbell Road Olympics. If our lake wasn’t frozen, we sprinkled baby powder on the hallway’s tile floor turning it into a skating rink. Daughter Shari caught the Olympics bug from Mama. She remembers watching the games with me and I remember her helping me make Olympic rings and medals for tracking USA athletes during my newsroom days at The Community Press. I went as far as making felt ice skates and sleds for co-workers. When Shari found out I was staging an Olympics celebration at the Welcome Center, she asked if I would help her do the same for neighbor kids. I agreed thinking it would be a good rehearsal for the center’s event. The children made their own flags, just like the Welcome Center seniors did. Their Olympics had a torch, just like the seniors, and some of the center’s planned games were modified for neighborhood competition. While carrying the coveted torch, I

led 13 flag-waving young “athletes” around the block where spectators cheered from porches. Gia, Gabe and their friends raced stick horses, threw Sharon beach balls through Brumagem hula hoops, and competed in the two-yard TOWN CRIER sprint (running along the sidewalk the length of two yards hence the name). The finale of their summer games involved riding their choice of wheels - two-wheel bikes, two-wheeler with training wheels, scooters, even a tricycle - around four blocks. Welcome Center seniors competed or cheered in featured events, such as: London Bridge chair volleyball, Big Ben disc toss, equestrian stick horse relay and high jump cup stacking. The most unusual game - the English Muffin curling competition - featured teams sweeping English muffins across the finish line with brooms. Bethel resident and center volunteer entertainer Cliff Cox provided the finale. He burst in clad in shorts, wearing a USA T-shirt and headband, carrying a mock torch, and shouting, “Am I too late to win a medal?” No, Cliff. You won gold in my eyes and in the eyes of the seniors, just like Shari earned hers by directing two hours of neighborhood family fun. You both should be proud of yourselves. I know I am. Sharon Brumagem writes Town Crier for The Community Press.

son. Despite the stigma that atheists are hateful and cynical, the most loving woman I know is an atheist. Despite Bible verses that promote love and caring (’You must love your neighbor as yourself. No other commandment is greater than these’), the most hateful people I know happen to be Christians. It is the content of a person’s character that makes him or her a good candidate for the presidency, not what they say they believe. An atheist can have an strong if not more active conscience than a Christian – perhaps in environmental affairs or foreign affairs. I don’t think Americans can make a vast generalization or judgment of the morals for either group ... I think

we have to acquaint ourselves with the person, not the religious affiliation, in order to become an informed voter.” L.S. “I would vote for an ‘agnostic,’ but not an atheist. My reason is that I am pretty convinced that human beings cannot scientifically prove or disprove the existence of God. I am betting that he is real, but I don’t know for certain. As I understand ‘atheism’ it is a firm belief that there is no God. If a person can come to this conclusion without proof, that doesn’t inspire me to have confidence in him or her.” Bill B.

“Why not? There is supposed to be separation of church and state. The president is not supposed to be making decisions based on religious beliefs. “From the standpoint of a Muslim, Buddhist, Hindu or Jew, a Christian is an atheist because he or she believes in a different religion. Religion should have no part in the election or in the way the president governs.” F.S.D. “I would vote for anyone that I thought would do a good job. Sadly religion plays a smaller and smaller part in a lot of people’s lives. Right now I think that both candidates are lacking a lot.” D.D.

Rita shares easy-to-make fudge recipe for kids

Update on Silverglade’s chicken salad clone As mentioned previously, Annie Hoffman’s recipe for chicken salad (her version of this popular salad) is not the recipe that Silverglade’s makes and sells. Their recipe is proprietary and Mike Silverglade said Annie’s recipe is not even close to his recipe. To get the “real deal,” stop by Silverglades at their Findlay Market location or their deli at Eighth and Sycamore streets in downtown Cincinnati.

Rocky Road fudge for kids to make

The last couple of years, my grandsons Luke, Will and Jack have submitted items to the junior division at our Clermont County Fair. This year they made fudge,

Competition open through Nov. 16 CINCINNATI — Officials of Cincinnati’s longest-running visual design competitions, Summerfair, are accepting entries for the annual poster. Poster applications will be available at Summerfair.org beginning through the deadline for entries at 5 p.m. Friday, Nov. 16. The winning designer will be notified Nov. 19 and will receive a $2,000 prize and a tremendous amount of exposure. Launching its 46th year in 2013, Summerfair is one of the nation’s oldest continuing art fairs. During the last several years the event has consistently been identified as a Sun-

Rita’s Tuscan pork chop kebabs feature a citrus marinade. THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD cinnamon spirals and decorated cupcakes. They were so excited, as usual. I brought their offerings in, but I was a bit late in getting them there, so their items couldn’t be judged. They did get ribbons for participation and I learned a valuable lesson. This fudge recipe is easy and really good, an excellent starter recipe for kids wanting to learn to cook. 1 14 oz. can condensed milk (not evaporated milk) 3 cups chocolate chips 1 cup butterscotch chips 2 teaspoons vanilla Handful of mini marshmallows 1 cup mixed nuts (optional)

Line an 8-inch by 8-inch pan with foil, letting foil hang over sides, and spray the foil. Bring milk to a boil. Add chips and cook on low until melted. Add everything else. Mix. Pour into pan. Chill until hard and cut into shapes.

Tuscan pork chop kebabs

We like this served with sides of corn on the cob and sautéed spinach. About 2 lbs. pork tenderloin, trimmed ¼ cup olive oil or bit more Zest and juice of one large lemon (2 tablespoons juice) or more to taste Salt and pepper to taste 1 tablespoon minced garlic 2-3 bell peppers: Use your favorite. I like a combo of

red, yellow and orange, cut into 1-inch pieces 1 large red onion, cut up to fit on skewers

Combine olive oil, juice, salt and pepper and garlic. Taste and add more of what you like if necessary. Add pork and marinate at room temperature about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally, or up to a couple hours in the refrigerator. Thread pork, peppers and onions alternately onto skewers. Grill 10 minutes or until pork is done, turning occasionally. Be careful here as pork cooks quickly.

Sautéed spinach or Swiss chard

Heat a skillet and film pan with olive oil. Add 8 cups spinach or chard (rinse, drain and leave some water clinging to the leaves), chopped if necessary, 2-3 teaspoons garlic, salt and pepper to taste. Sauté until spinach wilts.

1 cup water ¼ cup canola oil 1 cup mashed fully ripe bananas ¾ cup chopped walnuts (optional) 5 foil mini loaf pans, sprayed

We are down to the last row of corn, so I’ve been blanching and freezing it. I like to blanch the whole ears and then take the kernels off. I put the whole ear into the Rita center hole Heikenfeld of an angel food pan RITA’S KITCHEN and it keeps it stable so the corn kernels don’t fly everywhere. I am always amazed at how many ears of corn it takes to fill a pint jar, at least three. And if you’re growing flowers like petunias and they are looking leggy, go ahead and pinch them back. It will take a couple of weeks but you’ll get a new flush of blooms. I like to give them a light dose of fertilizer, too. My zinnias and marigolds are starting to go to seed and I’m going to save seeds for next year. Think about doing that yourself. It’s a lot less expensive than store-bought seeds and a good lesson for the kids to be stewards of their environment.

the last few days. I just would like a refund or all new tires.” So, I contacted the store that sold the tires and the owner told me he was unaware of the age of the tires when he sold them. Given that the tires are deteriorating after less than a year, he’s now given her a complete refund. Remember, tires can deteriorate inside even if they look alright on the outside. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says tires are only good for six to 10 years. Anything older than that, it says, are just not safe on the roads.

one of her tires it was week 13. The next numbers tell you the year in which it was made – in that case it simply said 4, which meant 1994. “He really didn’t look at all four tires, he just looked at one and told me that they shouldn’t be on the car because they’re way outdated,” Metzger said. The tires Metzger bought new are actually 17 years old. Clearly, the tires sat on a store shelf for years before they were sold. And technically there is no expiration date on tires, but now the government says after six years tires tend to rot and can be dangerous. Metzger said as a result of what she’s learned, “I’m very concerned. I haven’t been driving my car for

There are all these microcracks and fissures in the tires. I knew that was probably what Howard the probAin lem was,” HEY HOWARD! he said. They went back to the store that had sold the tires, but were told they were only able to get a warranty based on the tread wear of the problem tires. Metztger then went to another tire store where the Department of Transportation identification was checked on the tire’s sidewall. The first two numbers of the identification tell the week in which the tire was made – in the case of

You may not know it, but tires can wear out – even if there’s plenty of tread left on them. In some instances, even the car tires you buy new may be too old. That’s what a College Hill woman learned. Kathleen Metzger bought four new tires earlier this year and, after a few months, she started noticing problems. “It felt like it was out of alignment really bad. You had to have your hands on the wheel pretty firm in order to keep it corrected,” Metzger said. Metzger’s husband Ken put on a spare tire and, as he did, he saw the problem with the recently purchased tire. “I saw you could see the belt right at the end of the tire. These tires are falling apart.

Scouts USA. The girls decorated a booth in the 4-H building to commemorate each decade of Girl Scouting and showcased historical artifacts. In addition to decorating the booth, girls entered projects that they had completed in the previous year. On parade day, July 22, Troop 40234 had a float to remember with a birthday theme to observe the centennial event. The troop took home the overall winner. The Girl Scouts of Clermont County discovered more information about the history of Girl Scouts by reading the entries and posters depicting each decade of the girl-led movement. They combined learning, community service, and fun this year, making a difference in their community.

Stop smoking, feel benefits Smoking is not a topic I cover. That’s because I write about personal experiences and topics I am familiar with. I’ve never been a smoker. No one in my immediate family smokes and my parents didn’t smoke. I’ve lived smoke free my whole life - except for public Linda places. And Eppler now they are smoke COMMUNITY PRESS GUEST free, too. COLUMNIST Twenty minutes after you quit smoking, your blood pressure and heart rate will return to normal, as well as the temperature of your hands and feet. Eight hours after quitting, the carbon monoxide level in your blood drops to normal. On day two, carbon monoxide is expelled from your body and your lungs start to clear out tar-encrusted mucus. Doesn’t that sound disgusting! Your risk of sudden heart attack is already substantially reduced. On day three, there is a significant improvement in skin tone; your ability to taste and smell improves. On day four, breathing is easier, energy levels begin to increase and lung capacity begins to increase. But look out - the symptoms of withdrawal are at their peak. Don’t give up!

Garden tomatoes are ready Last Sunday after church we met friends Denny and Elaine for lunch, and then in the George evening we Rooks visited OLE FISHERMAN some other friends for the evening meal. These folks are very fine people and we thank Tony and Kate for a fine meal and friendship. It seems when we fence for the deer, then the rabbits are having a good feast in our garden. There have been several nests of baby rabbits, so when weedeating, I watch very careful for the rabbits nests in tall grass. We, the same as you folks, have seen a lot of baby deer, lots of twins. We usually see some triplets, but so far this year we have not seen any triplets. The baby fawns are so beautiful, but grow up to be dangerous on the highway, so when you are driving the roads be very careful. The deer don’t associate vehicles as danger. The O.V.A.M. show

starts this Thursday and goes till this Sunday. There will be another special event, since the group has purchased more ground, plowing with a steam engine. This event will be history when some of you folks read this article, but the folks that attend the show will get to see this event. I will be among the folks that see it. Some of the television we have seen shows a steam engine pulling several plows. That is exciting since I grew up on a farm, using horses to farm with. The Ohio Valley Antique Machinery show is such a good teaching exhibit for our young folks to learn how it was done years ago and how hard folks worked to raise a family. Back then each family raised a big garden, had a summer kitchen to use to do their canning in. The summer kitchen was a little open so it was cooler than the other kitchen. Back then, folks didn’t go to the big stores like we have today. They either canned, dried foods or canned meat. They would sugar cure hams and bacon and make lard out of

Howdy folks, The garden is sure doing good. When I pick ripe tomatoes, I think of my dad. How he loved ripe tomatoes. He was in a wheelchair and always carried a salt shaker in his shirt pocket. He would get a good ripe tomato and salt it and the smile on his face was great. Last week we got peaches from the Grant’s Farm and Green House. They were beautiful and very good, so Ruth Ann put several packs in the freezer for pies later. Last Wednesday after Ruth Ann fed Chessy, she was not satisfied. She kept going to the refrigerator, so we gave her some milk, then she was satisfied and wanted outside. Now we are eating rather good from the garden. Last Friday for dinner, we had fried green tomatoes, fried okra, golden pepper and peach pie. Now it don’t get any better than that. The Good Lord has sure blessed all of us with good health, a good garden, and good friends, so we are very fortunate give the Good Lord thanks each day.
