Bethel hires solicitor

New legal counsel to serve village for first time in 33 years By John Seney

BETHEL - Village council Aug. 8 hired a Cincinnati law firm to replace George Leicht, who stepped down as solicitor after 33 years of service. Council voted to hire the firm of Manley Burke to provide legal services. Julia Carney, a member of the law firm, told council she would be assigned to Bethel as part of her duties. Carney said she prev i o u s l y worked as an assistant solicitor with the city of George Leicht Cincinnati retiring Bethel and is a resivillage solicitor dent of Clermont County. The firm has a lot of municipal experience, she said, including handling solicitor duties for the city of Evendale. “They do a good job,” Leicht said of Manley Burke. Leicht urged council to waive the three readings of the ordinance to hire Manly Burke and approve the hiring immediately as an emergency action, which council did. “It’s been a great ride for 33 years,” he said. “You need younger talent.” Council member Alan Ausman said the personnel committee discussed the pros and cons of hiring a firm instead of an individual as solicitor. He said the committee did receive some applications from individuals but decided to recommend Manley Burke. For more about your community, visit

Valley View ready to take on Clean & Green By Kellie Geist-May

MILFORD - The Valley View Foundation, a non-profit group the oversees a 130-acre nature preserve in Milford, is looking to take over Clermont 20/20’s Clean & Green program. Clermont 20/20 closed earlier this year and many local organizations are picking up individual programs. Paul Braasch, director of the Adams-Clermont Solid Waste District which helps fund Clean & Green, said they weren’t interested in having the county run the program. “When Clean & Green started,

it was a group of citizens and business people who wanted to address the litter problem … I don’t think having the government take it over is nearly as effective as having a group of private citizens do (Clean & Green),” Braasch said. During Clean & Green, which involves a yearly county-wide litter pick-up and a river sweep, hundreds of volunteers comb Clermont County to pick-up litter and beautify the community. Braasch has been working with Valley View to see if they could take over the program. “I think it would be a good fit,” he said.

Chris Habel, president of the Valley View board of directors, said the organization is excited about the prospect of taking on Clean & Green. “This fits in with what we already do and it’s a good opportunity for us to expand,” he said. “Our mission is to conserve land, preserve history and share it with the community. This is a chance to share nature with the community.” “We can let people know who we are and the opportunities we have available while helping pump-up Clean & Green. We have a lot of people we can get involved,” Habel said.

Safe Communities to support drunk driving crackdown Goshen Kroger’s on Ohio 28 Saturday, Aug. 20, to encourage shoppers to drive safe, and not drink and drive. Officers will be aggressively looking for all impaired drivers during the crackdown and will arrest anyone they find driving while impaired - regardless of age, vehicle type or time of day. “Even if you beat the odds and manage to walk away from an impaired-driving crash alive, the trauma and financial costs of a crash or an arrest for driving while impaired can still destroy your life,” said Enriquez. Violators often face jail time, loss of their driver

licenses or being sentenced to use ignition interlocks. Their insurance rates go up. Other financial hits include attorney fees, court costs, lost time at work and the potential loss of job or job prospects. When family, friends and co-workers find out, violators can also face tremendous personal embarrassment and humiliation. “Driving impaired is simply not worth all the consequences. So don’t take the chance. Remember, Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over. For more information, visit the High-Visibility Enforcement Campaign Headquarters at

BETHEL – The Bethel American Legion Auxiliary Unit 406 is sponsoring a blood drive from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 31, at the legion, located on Legion Lane just of Ohio 133, north of the village. The donor bus will be parked at the post.

move forward with,” said Commissioner Ed Humphrey. Clean & Green is typically funded through a $3,000 grant from the Adams-Clermont Solid Waste District and private fundraising. Braasch said up to $6,000 could be available if Valley View took on electronics collection, which Clermont 20/20 had done the last couple of years. Valley View’s campus is open to visitors every day.

Clermont County law enforcement agencies will join nearly 10,000 other law enforcement groups nationwide in support of an intensive crackdown on impaired driving Aug. 19 through Sept. 5, known as “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over.” Safe Communities, a program of the Clermont County General Health District, works to reduce traffic fatalities throughout the community and will support this effort. The problem of impaired driving is a serious one. Data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration shows the number of alcoholimpaired-driving fatalities in America fell from 2008 to 2009, but the numbers are still too high. Fatal crashes in Clermont County so far this year have killed 10 people, and four were alcohol-related or 40 percent. This percentage is up from 2010, where four people of 17 were killed in alcohol-related crashes - 23 percent. “All too often, innocent, law-abiding people suffer tragic consequences and the loss of loved ones due to this careless disregard for human life. Since twice as many alcohol-impaired accidents occur over the weekend and four times as many occur at night, local law enforcement will be especially vigilant during these high-risk times when impaired drivers are most likely to be on our roads,” said Martha Enriquez of Safe Communities Locally, Safe Communities is partnering with the Goshen Township Police Department and the Goshen Kroger’s to reduce impaired driving. Safe Communities volunteers will be at the

The volunteers at Valley View already are heavily involved with Clean & Green, so the transition would be easy, Habel said. Braasch said he expects former Clean & Green Chair Becky Ploucha to stay involved. If Valley View is going to take over Clean & Green, they would need to contract with the AdamsClermont Solid Waste District. While both parties are in agreement, no contract has been signed. Although the Clermont County commissioners don’t have to approve the contract, Braasch and Habel presented the information to the board Aug. 10. “It sounds like a great plan to

success this year,” Charlton predicted. Charlton’s Tigers will also include three freshman this year in Chloe Henderson, Emilie Shouse and Lindsey Broach. “Chloe shows the most potential and may even break in to the varsity lineup by the end of the season,” Charlton said. Once this season is over, Kurt Charlton will also take on new responsibilities as he’ll take over the BethelTate boys team this coming spring from the retired Tim West.

BETHEL - Coach Kurt Charlton’s Bethel-Tate girls tennis team appears strong after a 6-4 finish last year. The Tigers return their top seven varsity players, while league opponents Amelia and Western Brown lost some veterans. Bethel-Tate’s top returner is junior Clare Shaljo who was Southern Buckeye Conference-American division first team in singles. “She had a great season last year and is coming back much stronger, “ Charlton said by email. “ She has put in a lot of work in the off season to have a stronger shot and more confidence.” Junior Mackenzie Rinehart will play second singles. She was also a firstteam pick a year ago and has put in considerable offseason work. Senior Morgan Adams moves from doubles to the third singles slot, while juniors Melissa McMullen and



Clare Schaljo is the No. 1 singles player for the Bethel-Tate tennis team again in 2011 after making SBAACAmerican first team last year.

Taylor Carter hits a backhand on the run for the Lady Cardinals. Carter was a SBAACNational first-team player in singles last season and is back for her senior year.

Hannah Wallace will play first doubles. “These girls have a real desire to work hard and do the little things to make them win,” Charlton said.

Second doubles will be handled by juniors Madison White and Sara Benjamin. “They are almost as strong as our first doubles team and will show a lot of

BETHEL – Coach Mary Beth Tucker had to leave the Tigers volleyball team in the middle of the season last year. It wasn’t due to the

results, it was due to her due date. One of the highlights of the Bethel-Tate season was the birth of Tucker’s son. Beyond that, it was a difficult season on the court as the Tigers struggled at 1-15.

Now, the young Tucker lad is nearing a year old and his mother’s more determined than ever to put a representative product on the floor at Bethel-Tate. “The biggest thing this year is to really work harder

on our skills and fundamentals,” Tu c k e r said. “This y e a r we’ve had a camp at o u r Lawrence school, we’ve had some summer leagues and we’ve had five scrimmages. We’ve got a lot we’ve been working on.” Tucker has three returning seniors to help her cause in Dominique Gossett, Julia Hebel and Cyra Jones. “They’re very strong and very dedicated and they want to win,” Tucker said. “They’ve had a great attitude. I also have a good group of sophomores and two are going to play up.” Alex Combs and Miranda Poklar are both expected to see considerable time for the Tigers around the net as sophomores. In third year coaching at Bethel after coaching at Williamsburg (where she played) Tucker is committed to changing the mindset of the program. This was demonstrated through this summer’s extra work. “We all want to be here, and we’re all here for one reason,” Tucker said. “We want to play volleyball.” While Bethel-Tate can only go up in the standings, Tucker figures the league leaders will remain the same. “Western Brown and Amelia are two of the toughest in our division,” Tucker said. The Tigers bat their first serves Aug. 27 at Mariemont.


FELICITY - Like BethelTate, Felicity-Franklin volleyball took its lumps in 2010 with a 1-12 season. The lone bright spot was Amber Lawrence, who was named a first-team Southern Buckeye ConferenceNational division performer a year ago. Lawrence is back as a junior, as is senior Montana Wear, who’s better

known for hurling softballs t h a n whacking volleyballs. While Lawrence Wear s t a y s sharp playing club volleyball, Wear’s priority is softball. Her biggest issue around the net is her timing. “Her specialty’s not volleyball,” coach Damon Smith admitted. “She’s a really strong player, a big middle hitter.” Smith often spends time in practice trying to get Wear to punish the volleyball in the same manner she does the smaller, yellow sphere during the spring. “I just said that to her the other afternoon,” Smith said with a laugh. “I told her, ‘Just one time I want to see you hit the ball like that to the other side. It’ll only take once. You’ll take that girl out!’” Smith’s biggest frustration in getting the sport rolling at Felicity-Franklin has been trying to get his girls focused. “They want to treat it like a social event,” Smith said. “When it came to tournament time (last year) two or three girls didn’t show up. They had some other event going on at school. I ended up going there with nine girls.” He also deals with issues many smaller schools have like students missing time for vacations and injuries, which hurts when you don’t have big-school numbers. The Cardinals have talented female athletes as evidenced by their softball program. Smith’s mission is to coax them out and get some focused effort. In the SBAAC-National, he sees a middle-of-thepack team making a move. “I think East Clinton’s pretty good,” Smith said. East Clinton was 5-5 in the league last year, behind Blanchester’s 8-2 and Williamsburg’s 9-1.

and junior Kailyn Waters. Adams is also hoping for some freshmen reinforcements. As for Southern Buckeye Conference predictions? “I expect Batavia and Blanchester to be tough in the small school division (National), and Amelia, Bethel and Western Brown to dominate the large school division (American).”



On Aug. 8, Bethel-Tate’s boys golf team defeated Goshen. Co-medalists were Jason Adams and Nathan Pyles at 39 at Deer Track. Bethel-Tate was ninth at the Batavia-Madeira Invitational Aug. 9. Aug. 10 at the Bethel-Tate Invitational, the Tigers were third. Robby Wagner led with a 77. On Aug. 11, the Tigers lost by two strokes to New Richmond with Wagner the medalist with an even-par 71 at Lindale

Aug. 10 question

What excites you about the upcoming pro football season? “It excites me that somebody will once again plunk down some of their hard-earned money to watch the Bengals lose and at the same time help pay for that ridiculously expensive stadium that is like a millstone around the necks of all us residents of Hamilton County. “I will be thankful that it is not me laying out the cash.” F.S.D. “That Chad OchoWeirdo is no longer a Bengal. Yeeeeeeeeeeeee eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeah!!!” Joy K. “Not much. I’m a lot more excited about UC football and the college football season.” T.H. “Nothing.”


“Absolutely nothing at all.” J.R.B. “My son and I have season tickets so we are looking forward to the coming season and we’re glad there will be a season. “Unfortunately it’s with a lot of trepidation due to the loss of Palmer, Owens and Ocho, plus the coaching changes and nonchanges. And then there are the legal problems some players encountered during the off-season. “We’re hoping for a better year than 2010 (which was lousy), but that will only happen if several players, especially the rookies, surprise us with unexpected performances plus a few lucky breaks.” R.V. “I get to catch up on my reading while my husband glues himself to the TV. I do, however, hope the Bengals can stay out of jail. Then we might have a chance at the Super Bowl.” J.K. “Palmer vs. Brown.”


“I love football – NFL, college, high school. I love the pace and action of the game. Wish I lived in a city where I could be proud of the NFL team.” E.E.C. “First of all the worst thing the Bengals could have ever done was to bring back coach Lewis. He’s had his chance and it didn’t work out. “With Palmer and Ochocinco gone I really have a hard time believing they will be better than their 4-12 season last year. I don’t want to sound negative, but I’ve followed the Bengals for over 40 years and I have seen a lot of disappointment in our team and I don’t think this year will be much different.” D.D.

United Way efforts prepare students

Parents in Clermont County can find great child care and early learning programs for their children, thanks to United Way Success by 6®, which has helped 29 programs receive Ohio Step Up To Quality (STUQ) ratings.* These represent 47 percent of eligible programs county-wide, one of the highest participation rates in the state. This is just one result of United Way of Greater Cincinnati - Eastern Area’s education-focused work in Clermont County, which includes: • Helping get children entering kindergarten ready to succeed. • Helping elementary schools develop ways to ease adjustment for children entering kindergarten and moving from grade to grade. • Launching a Ready Schools Initiative in the county, working with six elementary schools where kindergarten, preschool and child care teachers and administrators work together to assess children, address areas of concern, share information and data, and create strategies to ease the transition from early childhood to kindergarten. Something as simple as providing incoming kindergartners with

school T-shirts can make them feel welcome and comfortable in their new school setting, which enhances learning. • Establishing Berta Velilla r e l a t i o n s h i p s Community between United Way, its partner Press Guest agencies and all Columnist county school districts so Kindergarten Readiness Assessment/Literacy (KRA-L) scores can now be analyzed in the context of how pre-kindergarten experiences can impact school readiness. This comprehensive study identifies the impact of pre-kindergarten experiences and shows the quality of pre-school experiences is a bigger indicator of future success than a child’s economic background. • Increasing participation in the YWCA Home Instruction for Parents of Preschool Youngsters (HIPPY**) program in Batavia, Williamsburg and Clermont Northeastern school districts.

School readiness is crucial to future success. Research indicates that, by the time your child is 5, 85 percent of the brain has developed. Quality pre-kindergarten education that includes a safe, stimulating environment, social interactions and learning experiences is crucial in establishing life-long healthy patterns and development. This is why the work of United Way in the area of education is so important in Clermont County. As KRA-L scores are showing us, children receiving quality early education experiences are entering kindergarten better prepared to succeed in school.

About those asterisks

* Step up to Quality is Ohio’s voluntary quality rating system for licensed child care programs. Step Up To Quality recognizes early care and education programs that exceed quality benchmarks over and above Ohio’s licensing standards. Centers receive one, two or three stars, which cover areas including group size, teacher training and credentials. Find more information at And look for the banners with stars outside rated centers.

** HIPPY is a home-based, family focused program that helps parents provide educational enrichment for their preschool child. HIPPY’s mission is to empower parents as primary educators of their children in the home and to foster parental involvement in school and community life to maximize the chances of successful early school experiences. By supporting parents, HIPPY’s primary goal is to increase vulnerable children’s success in school and, ultimately, in life.

Project suggests community 9/11 walks As the 10th anniversary of 9/11 approaches, many of us are wondering how best to honor the many victims of that tragedy and its aftermath. To help answer that question, we at Abraham’s Path are organizing 9/11 Walks all over the United States and around the world. Our goal is simple: To honor the victims by walking and talking kindly with neighbors and strangers, in celebration of our common humanity and in defiance of fear, misunderstanding and hatred. Think about it: Wouldn’t it be great if 9/11 became a day for Christians, Muslims, Jewish people, and everyone else to step over boundaries and walk kindly with “the other,” the way Martin Luther King Day has become a day for community service? What

better way to build a pathway to peace? The original idea was to organize one big cross-boundary walk in New City, but Bart York officials there Campolo encouraged us to Community sponsor smaller walks instead. Press Guest Now the idea is Columnist for lots of people – people like you – to organize 9/11 Walks in their own neighborhoods. Now handfuls of members from churches, mosques, synagogues, community groups and families around the world are inviting each other to meet up on that afternoon. Here in Ohio, a walk is already

Better still, take a walk! Bart Campolo is the outreach coordinator with Abraham Path, an international human rights organization. He is also a neighborhood minister with the Walnut Hills Fellowship.

A vocabulary lesson, Mr. Harding Mr. Harding, lets get a vocabulary lesson out of the way first, so all the readers know what you alluded to with your comment about "nihilism" at the end of your rant against the Tea Partiers. Nihilism means total rejection of established laws and institutions. Anarchy, terrorism or other revolutionary activity. Total and absolute destructiveness especially toward the world at large and including oneself. According to Mr. Harding, these Tea Partiers are terrorists? I believe and I think a majority of the public would agree with me that the health care bill that Mr. Harding specifically mentions, was passed by the Democratic majority in both houses of congress (look at the first definition above, total rejection of established laws and institutions, those

congresspersons work for us, not for themselves), against the will of 68 percent of the public, according to polls at the time of the passage of Robert the law, which Dollenmeyer the then speaker Sr. of the house, Nancy Pelosi, Community famously said Press Guest "we have to pass Columnist this bill to see what’s in it.” That is nihilism at its highest if you go by the definition. And Mr. Harding also says the 10th Amendment does not apply to the health care bill? He says that Article 16 of the constitution does not allow states to opt out of a feder-

al law such as this. It looks as if Mr. Harding believes the government can take from you a fine, meaning a tax, taken by the internal revenue service, if you or I choose not to participate, and buy into some plan, that anyone has the choice not to participate in. But, the amendment cited, says taxes on income. Lets go a step further and just for the sake of argument, Mr. Harding, lets say your assessment of this amendment is correct. What is to stop the government from telling everyone what type light bulbs you are allowed to buy. Oh. I forgot. They already did that. Let’s take another example. How about the government says, unless you buy healthy food, you will pay a fine when you file your taxes if you can’t prove you bought a certain amount of healthy (according to who?) food.

They say you must be able to prove your tax deductions currently, so down the road why would you think they can’t force you to prove you bought healthy food? Where does it stop if you believe the government can tell you that you must purchase health insurance? If you believe the government can tell you what you can and can’t do or buy or eat, then you should move to Cuba or some other communist country as that is how they control their population. If you want total government control, that is the way we are headed if you are told what you have to buy in the case of this health care deal. Lets stop it right now and vote with the Tea Partiers to allow Ohio to opt out of this health care bill. Robert Dollenmeyer is a resident of Milford.

Jamie Kinner works behind the counter of the Riverside Coffee Mill in Batavia.

Riverside Coffee Mill a gathering place By John Seney

BATAVIA - In addition to providing fresh coffee and food to village residents, the Riverside Coffee Mill has become a community gathering place. “We set out to make this a community center,” owner Jamie Kinner said. About 25 different groups have held meetings at the shop, including a writers’ group, a paranormal organization and a drum circle. Four and a half years ago, Kinner decided to leave the corporate world of insurance and open the coffee shop. “I was spending too much money at other shops,” she said of the decision to open the shop at 177 S. Riverside Drive. The shop found a home in an old house she and her husband, Michael Kinner, purchased and fixed up. “It seemed like the right thing to do,” she said. “There was not another coffee shop in town.” The business also provided the Kinners with a lifestyle change. They were able to spend more time with their children, who often help out at the shop. Michael, who works in the insurance business, also is able to help out. “It’s truly a family operation,” he said. He credits Jamie with the success of the shop. “It’s Jamie’s personalized service,” he said. “She makes people feel comfortable. She knows a customer’s first name when they come back.” Jamie said the business took a hit a few years ago when the economy worsened. ”But we’re building it back up,” she said. Riverside is more than a coffee shop. The menu includes soups, sandwiches, salads and bakery items. For breakfast, there are muffins, bagels, croissants, cinnamon rolls and scones. Waffles are served until noon Saturdays.

Gatch Award nominees have varied volunteer backgrounds The Orpha Gatch Citizenship Award recognizes the achievement of a Clermont County woman for her outstanding volunteer civic service in the community. The nominee must reside in Clermont County and the activities for which the nominee is being recognized must be volunteer. Nominees symbolize the energy, optimism and trust of the early suffragists. Suffragists are the women who worked for the right for women to vote in the United States. Some were imprisoned for their efforts. The nominees for the 2011 award are: Connie Taggart of Felicity, Christa Borchers of Wayne Township, Geraldine Minors of Miami Township and June Cole of Batavia Township.

Christa Borchers

For the past two years Christa has organized and coached the Girls on the Run Program for the students in grades four and five at Seipelt ElemenBorchers tary in the Milford school district. This is a non-profit prevention program that encourages preteen girls to develop selfrespect and healthy lifestyles through running. Also for the past two years, Christa has organized activities at Seipelt related to the Relay For Life in support of cancer survivors. She has planned fundraising events and rallied the staff to support the cause. This year she was the lead organizer for the Survivor Dinner at the Relay for Life held at Milford High School June 11. Outside school hours, Christa is also involved in many community activities. She was a 4-H advisor for six years, an adult staff member at 4-H camp and a counselor at Sunrock Farm. Christa has a great relationship with the people she works with, students, parents and business partners in the community. She collaborates with other stake-

holders in education and has been a mentor to new teachers and students from UC in the teacher education program. She is not afraid to confront problems and difficult situations head on. This is helpful in creating a positive, open climate with the people she works with in the school and community. Christa has been employed in the Milford school district for six years. She was hired to teach kindergarten at Seipelt Elementary and over the years has become the lead kindergarten teacher in the building. Christa is very passionate about providing appropriate instruction and interventions for students. She truly knows the strengths and weaknesses of all her students. She is able to clearly articulate concerns to the support staff and especially to parents. Christa is a true advocate for her students.

June Cole

The list of volunteer activities behind June Cole’s name is a long one. They include: Clermont Senior Services Fall Auction Planning Committee, Clermont Cole M e r c y Hospital “Suger Plumb Kids” Christmas program, provided alter flowers for the Batavia Presbyterian Church, provides the flowers on the bridge for Batavia in Bloom’s Village Beautification program, raises funds for the YMCA scholarship program, bakes and mails cookies to Clermont County men and woman in Iraq, volunteers with third-graders helping with math skills. She has been a Brownie leader, PTA member, served on boards of the YWCA, American Cancer Society, Batavia Garden Club and the Southwest Developmental Center. At Clermont Northeastern Middle School she created a program to provide enrichment and tutoring for students. She calls her 13 years as a 4-H leader a

“passion.” During the Flood of 1997, she helped the Clermont County Extension Service provide relief in the river towns of Chilo, Neville, Moscow and New Richmond. As a member of Batavia in Bloom for five years, June helped provide flowers throughout the village of Batavia, the bridge and the court house steps. She helped plant flowers in the spring and watered them daily. She helped water and cared for 40 pots and planters. At the Clermont County YMCA, she served on the board for five years. She continues to work with a group called The Mermaids that earns money to send girls and boys to summer camp. With the Hope Emergency Project, June hosted an English tea to raise $900. She sorted and laundered a school’s “lost and found” and supplied the project with 100 heavy and warm winter coats and jackets. She helps with their annual Christmas gift distribution. She said “so many of the things I have done could not have been accomplished without working with wonderful people.”

Gerry Meiners

Gerry Meiners has been active in the Civil Air Patrol for 20 years bringing posit i v e change in the lives of members age 12 to 21. T h i s organization helps Meiners members prepare for careers in aviation, engineering or military service. Her work also helps prepare young people and adults to help during natural and man-made disasters. The Civil Air Patrol also provides aerospace education to members and the community. One example of such work is exposing sixth graders to this program at various elementary schools in Clermont County.

The Civil Air Patrol is the non-profit auxiliary of the Air Force. It is a volunteer group. When Clermont County Squadron OH-279 lost its members because of poor leadership, Gerry volunteered to take command and worked three years to rebuild the unit into a selfsupporting group of workers consisting of eight young men and five supporting adults. This squadron has a history of working with a number of disasters. Recently, they helped locate several privately-owned aircraft the Air Force Rescue Coordinate Center thought were in distress. By locating these aircraft, she and her team were able to report they were just having electrical problems and was able to shut off the beacon that showed distress. That freed up the airwaves for real emergencies. The three years that it took Gerry to rebuild this squadron is the best example of her determination to keep on working. The requirements of integrity, selfless service, honesty and willingness to serve this organization are not only met, but exceeded by her work and energy. Gerry’s desire is to show candidate members of the Civil Air Patrol that the closer their expectations are to the reality of the work involved, the more likely they are to succeed in serving their community, county, state and nation.

Connie Taggart

Connie Taggart is active not only in her home community of Felicity, but also across Clermont County. She has organized and taught parenting classes in Felicity and in the FelicityFranklin schools; implemented and facilitated children’s COA, Children of Alcoholics, support groups; coordinated the FelicityFranklin schools Safe & Drug Free Schools program.

Lakeside owners complete tasting room, start weekly events By Kellie Geist-May

FELICITY - After years of baby steps, the owners of Lakeside Vineyard and Winery are ready to officially open their tasting room and, hopefully, turn it into a gathering place. The winery and tasting room opens at noon every Saturday, but starting Sept. 3, there also will be live music starting at 4:30 p.m. “We started this winery with plenty of room to grow. The tasting room is the first point of introduction to our wines, so this is our first big step in moving forward,” said Tim Downey, who owns Lakeside with his wife Lynn. They live in Miami


Tim Downey shows off the bar in Lakeside Vineyard and Winery’s newly completed tasting room as well as the winery’s dry red Temptress wine. Township. Construction on the winery started when the Downeys embarked on the dream of growing their own grapes and sharing their

wine with visitors nine years ago. “We started construction in 2002 and we’ve had some starts and stops. Its difficult to work in a building you’re trying to use,” Tim said. “We started having people in the tasting room in 2007.” “A lot of people have come through and have seen the transition. It will be great for them to see what we’ve done with the place,” he said. The tasting room has plenty of seating and a bar in the center where visitors can try samples for 50 cents, buy a glass of wine for $3 or take home a bottle of wine for between $10 and $12. The Downeys also will be happy to use the bar

as a place to share information about the wines, the winery, the process and even the grapes. “There are so many wines out there that it can be confusing and overwhelming. We are more than happy to share our knowledge and to help people find something they love,” Lynn said. “Don’t be afraid to ask questions – we’ve all been there.” The first person to bring music to the winery will be John Ladd, a country/folk/rock guitarist. While many of the performers are individuals with acoustic guitars, there will be larger bands and a variety of music. Lakeside’s schedule is full through the

end of this year and they plan to continue booking entertainment for the future. The music will start at 4:30 every Saturday and the winery will stay open as long as the music plays. There also will be complimentary snacks provided by Becky Culver, who recently opened The White Horse Diner in Harrison, Ohio. For more about the winery, including a list of upcoming performances and wine selections, visit or call 513876-1810. The Downeys would like people to know that all the musicians are working for tips. Lakeside Vineyard and Winery is at 3324 Ohio 756 just east of Felicity.

A few simple, tasty snacks to pack for lunch Is the summer flying by for you as quickly as it is for me? Already the kids are talking about buying school supplies. And parents are thinking about what they’re going to pack in lunches. Here’s some ideas to help out.

On the go chewy bars

Granola bars are so popular now. This is a nice, all purpose bar, good for breakfast on the go or to pack into lunches. Feel free to substitute just about anything for the chocolate chips, or use half chocolate chips and half dried fruit, nuts, whatever. 41⁄2 cups oats 1 cup flour 1 teaspoon baking soda 2 teaspoons vanilla 2 ⁄3 cup butter, softened 1 ⁄2 cup honey 1 ⁄3 cup packed brown sugar, dark or light 2 cups miniature semisweet chocolate chips or dried fruit (raisins, diced apricots, your choice) Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Spray a 9-by-13 inch pan. Mix oats, flour, baking soda, vanilla, butter, honey and sugar. Stir in chips or fruit. Press mixture into pan. Bake 18 to 22 minutes or until golden brown. Don’t overbake or you’ll wind up with crispier bars. Let cool for a few minutes and then press the mixture down again – you can use mitts, foil, whatever. This will make it easier to cut into squares or bars and you can cut the bars right in the pan. Let bars cool completely in pan before removing. Makes two to three dozen.

Grain, gluten and dairy free granola bars

From Julie, a Kentucky reader who works in a day care facility. “I got this recipe from a mom who has a child with allergies to grains, gluten and dairy.” 21⁄2 cups assorted nuts and seeds 1 cup dried fruit 2 cups shredded coconut 1 ⁄4 cup coconut oil 1 ⁄2 cup honey 2 teaspoons vanilla 1 ⁄2 teaspoon salt 2-3 teaspoons cinnamon Roughly chop 1 cup of the nuts and seeds. Place in bowl. Use your food processor to pulse the other 11⁄2 cups of nuts and seeds into a finer “chop.” Add to bowl. Add fruit. Stir in coconut. In a saucepan over

Lemon glazed carrots

We are still pulling some carrots from the garden. They’ll taste great in a simple lemon butter sauce. If you use baby carrots, no need to slice.

Buttermilk pancakes

Out of all the pancakes I make, these are my husband, Frank, and grandson Luke’s favorite. Leftovers microwave pretty well, too. You can sprinkle on

Low-interest ‘checks’ turn out to be not so convenient You’ve probably received one of those so called “Convenience Checks” from your credit card company offering you a very low interest rate on money you wish to borrow. But, before you take advantage of those checks you need to know about an unexpected drawback. Mary Lehman, Amberley Village, says she was very happy with the offer that came with her convenience checks. “I could get a zero percent APR by using these checks for 15 months. Now, there’s a small fee, I think it’s 3 percent. I was going to use it to refinish my floors,” she

Howard Ain Hey Howard!

said. Lehman says she thought the checks would be just like using her credit card. So, she used a check to pay the man who re-did her floors. Soon problems developed with the

floors. “After the polyurethane began to dry, I noticed it hadn’t been stained properly,” Lehman says. Lehman called the contractor who did the work but he didn’t

call back. “I called the Visa company up and thought I could just stop payment on the check, which is a reasonable thing to expect. They told me, ‘Oh, no. We can’t stop payment on the check.’” Although the credit card company would not stop payment, Lehman asked if she could dispute the charge, just as she can dispute a charge on her credit card, but was told she can’t do that either. “They told me, ‘Oh no, you have no recourse with these checks whatsoever.

ble for their check policies. So, it’s important to remember the 60day purchase protection you get with your credit card simply does not apply to convenience checks. Instead, consider these checks just like cash. Once you use them you have no recourse if the goods or services later turn out to be defective. Also, don’t just throw them away if you don’t want them – rip them up first so no one can steal them and use them. Howard Ain answers consumer complaints weekdays on WKRC-TV Local 12.

Lehman says she’s particularly upset because the letter that came with the convenience checks recommends using them to pay for such things as home improvements. Although the idea of not having to repay the money for up to 15 months is very enticing, Lehman says she wants to warn everyone. “As tempting as these checks are, do not use them to pay contractors. Take the extra time to put it in your bank first and then pay the contractor afterwards with your credit card,” she says. Visa tells me banks sending out convenience checks are responsi-

reception is free and open to the public. Sabian, received graduate degrees in fine arts at UC’s College of Design Art Architecture and Planning (DAAP) and Morehead State University. “It’s all about the outfits we wear. The costumes that identify us, make us feel confident or malicious,” said Sabian. The artist’s works feature wood relief panels with mixed media. Through her art, Sabian also addresses the idea of identity and the use of cosmetic surgery in our culture “to become objects of our greatest desire or spectacu-

Lions Club to hand out book bags to local students grave and cry, I am not there. I did not die.” The Indians are a very special George people.” The proRooks gram at the Ole M o n r o e Fisherman G r a n g e meeting last Friday was put on by the Junior Grangers and boy they did a fine job.

Remember the Monroe Grange is having a benefit waffle breakfast from 9 a.m. till noon Aug. 20 at the Riverside Coffee Mill on Riverside Drive in Batavia. Come and enjoy the breakfast and help the Grange. Ruth Ann will put the recipe in for Lime Pickles. You buy Mrs. Wages Picklin Lime at the grocery store in the canning section. 7 pounds of cucumbers sliced crosswise, 1 cup Mrs. Wages Pickling Lime, 2 gal-

lons water. Soak the clean cucumbers in the water and lime mixture in crockery or enamel ware for 2 hours or overnight. Do not us aluminum ware. (I did use stainless steel.) Remove sliced cucumbers from lime water. Discard lime water. Rinse 3 times in fresh cold water. Soak 3 hours in fresh ice water. Combine 8 cups distilled white vinegar (5 percent

acidity) I add some green food coloring to make them look pretty, this is optional. 1 tablespoon canning salt, 8 cups sugar and 2 teaspoons mixed pickling spices in a large pot. Bring to a low boil, stirring until sugar dissolves. Remove syrup from heat and add the sliced cucumbers. Soak 5-6 hours or overnight. Boil slices in the syrup 35 minutes. Fill sterilized jars with hot slices.

Pour hot syrup over the slices, leaving 1⁄2 inch headspace. Cap each jar when filled. Process pints 10 minutes, quarts 15 minutes in a boiling water bath canner. These are very crisp. Start your week by going to the church of your choice and praise the Good Lord. God Bless All. More Later. George Rooks is a retired park ranger. Rooks served for 28 years with the last five as manager of East Fork State Park.

Howdy folks, The visit to the surgeon this morning was good. He was very pleased with the healing. When the nurse was here Monday she discovered there was one staple left in her leg, so the doctor’s assistant removed it this morning. Ruth Ann can get around the house with out using her cane. With the new lift chair she can get up and be around the house checking on me without me knowing it. This is wonderful to be able to get help in the house. I asked the doctor when Ruth Ann could go fishing and with the pontoon boat he said anytime so we will set the first part of September sometime. Monday morning the Lions Club members met at the primary school. The club always helps put the book bags together for the children in kindergarten, first, second, third, fourth and fifth grades. Thursday the children and parents came to the school and the child will pick up the book bag they like. This is always a very enjoyable time for us as Lions members. Ruth Ann will be there Thursday afternoon to watch the children pick up their special book bag. This is just one of the services the Bethel Lions Club does for the community. Last week we canned tomatoes and made lime pickles. The cucumbers are starting to produce. Of course we have them fenced. That is the only way to keep the deer from eating them. We, like the other folks, are having problems with raccoons eating the tomatoes. I thought they needed the moisture, but I guess I am wrong. The crows have gotten all the green apples off one apple tree. The birds are pecking the green tomatoes now that they have fallen off the vine. Last week I planted green beans and they are up. They will be fenced so the deer or rabbits can’t get to them. The cranberry beans are starting to get close to being ready to shell. We like the shell beans, and also green beans. The carrots we planted this year have sure done good. While thinning them, we had lots of small carrots and they are so sweet. A dear friend of ours passed away. He sure had a lot of suffering and his wife sure took good care of him. This feller and wife were in several organizations. One we were with them was the P.E.R.I. At a meeting we always looked for him and his wife. James L. Rogers was a grand person and his wife, Joyce, a doll. In the funeral folder for James was an Indian prayer. I have never seen this and it is so good, so I would share this here. “Do not stand at my grave and weep, I am not there. I do not sleep, I am a thousand winds that blow. I am the diamond glint on snow. I am the sunlight on ripened grain. I am the gentle autumn rain. When you wake in the morning hush, I am the swift uplifting rush of quiet birds encircling flight. I am the soft starlight at night. Do not stand at my

Tag Monarch butterflies before they migrate to Mexico Around this time every year, Monarch butterflies leave Clermont County to migrate thousands of miles to spend winter in Central Mexico. If you’re a butterfly buff, you can be a part of the Monarch’s amazing journey. Join Clermont County Park District staff members for a Monarch butterfly tagging event at 10:30

a.m. Saturday, Sept. 10, at the Chilo Lock No. 34 Park. Meet at the visitor center. Naturalists also will be tagging butterflies that day at 2 p.m. at Shor Park, 4659 Tealtown Road in Union Township. “We will be catching Monarch butterflies in nets, and placing a small, harmless tag on their wing

before releasing them to finish their migration,” said Clermont Parks’ Chief Naturalist Keith Robinson. “We will record information about each butterfly before its release; if they are recaptured anywhere on their migration or found at their final destination in Mexico, we will be able to track their progress.” After the tagging event, partic-

ipants will be able to check the national Monarch Watch website at to monitor the local migration. “We will be able to find out if the Monarchs follow the same migration path each year,” said Robinson. Park district staff recommends you wear long pants and tennis

Clermont eligible for federal disaster assistance due to spring rains BATAVIA – Clermont County is one of 21 Ohio counties that will receive additional federal aid, following spring storms packing torrential rains that caused more than $1.4 million in infrastructure damage across Clermont County. “We are quite pleased

that federal aid will be available to help Clermont County recover from the April and May storms that washed out culverts and caused damage to numerous roads and bridges across the county,” said Clermont County Commis-

sioner Ed Humphrey. “The federal funds will help local governments and nonprofit organizations pay for the much needed repairs and, in some cases, replacement of critical infrastructure,” he said. Local governments with-

Kameleon representative will be in-store Thursday, 8/18, T with additional, unique pieces.

in the county can apply for reimbursement of 75-percent of their storm-related expenses. Numerous Clermont County roadways were impacted by the storms. The Clermont County Engineer’s Office reports that the excessive rain accelerated slippage on Locust Corner Road in Pierce Township. “Repairs at that site are estimated at $500,000,” said Clermont Bridge Engineer Todd Gadbury. “Old (Ohio) 28 in Miami Township had to have a lane closure because the roadway failed; repairs there are estimated at $250,000. A quarter-million dollars worth of damage is also estimated to Old (Ohio) 74 in Union Township.” Gadbury has estimated repairs to Slaven Road in Pierce Township at $40,000; $185,000 damage to Goebel Hill Road in Ohio Township; and, $150,000 damage to Chilo CemeteryMcKendree Chapel in Franklin Township.
