75¢ BECAUSE COMMUNITY MATTERS

Can you see me now? By Keith BieryGolick kbierygolick@communitypress.com

RACE ORGANIZERS

Runners compete in the Shirley Sayre Memorial 5K Run/Walk last year. PROVIDED

GIVE BACK

Portion of proceeds given to police department By Keith BieryGolick kbierygolick@communitypress.com

BETHEL — Pam Taylor is not a Bethel native, but the way the community embraced her after her mother died made her want to give back. Taylor coaches cross country at Bethel schools and her mother, Shirley Sayre, was killed by a drunk driver last year in Spartanburg, S.C. Taylor and Melissa Copestick, a cross country team parent, recently attended a Village Council meeting to thank them for allowing the Shirley Sayre Memorial 5K Run/Walk to become a reality. “It’s been (almost) two years now since we approached you about having a race in honor of Pam Taylor’s mother,” Copestick, who helped organize the event, said. “We wanted to first and foremost thank you for accepting our proposal, and we wanted to thank the police department in particular.” June 15 was the second year for the Shirley Sayre race. It had 268 runners/walkers and 40 volunteers participate, Copestick said. “A year and a half ago my mother was killed by a drunk driver and it was very hard on our family,” Taylor said.

Proceeds from the Shirley Sayre 5K Memorial Run/Walk were given to Mother’s Against Drunk Driving (MADD) and the Bethel Police Department. Pictured with Police Chief Mark Planck and Mayor Alan Ausman are race organizers Melissa Copestick and Pam Taylor.PROVIDED

“To see the community embrace me and my mother is very, very heartfelt and so last year we were able to donate a large chunk of money to MADD (Mother’s Against Drunk Driving). This year, we would like to donate a sum of money to MADD, but also to the Bethel community for supporting us the over the last two years.” Taylor and Copestick donated $1,000 of the proceeds from

the race to the Bethel Police Department. “I wasn’t able to participate the first year, I was on vacation, but this year I was able to participate. I was amazed at the turnout – it was a great event, well-organized, wellplanned,” said Mayor Alan Ausman. “I really appreciate the work you all put into it. It was a wonderful thing to participate in.”

The race was proposed as a way to show the Bethel community what impact drinking and driving can have on people, Copestick said. With another successful year under its belts, Taylor said the race will continue. “We hope to be able to continue doing this in memory of her and to keep alive the memory of all the people who died tragically on the road to drunk drivers,” she said.

BETHEL — Drivers soon won’t need eyeglasses to see the Bethel Lions Club signs. That’s because the club, which primarily focuses on eye research, recently bought new signs to replace its old ones next to state Route 125 and state Route 133. “On all four entrances into Bethel we had older signs that were deteriorating,” said Jim Rees, Lions Club treasurer. The old signs were rusty, bent over and not noticeable, he said. “We are ... on a program to increase our membership and the way to do that is let everybody know we are in town.” The signs will be installed on state Route 125 and state Rees Route 133 as each road enters the village, said George Rooks, Lions Club president. The new signs will be installed this month by village officials, Rees said. “(The signs) will be close, if not right at, the corporation limits (to Bethel),” Rees said. The Bethel Lions Club is a community service organization that primarily focuses on eye research, Rooks said. “If students need eye glasses and their parents can’t afford them – for whatever reason – we’ll we’ll pay for them to go and see an optometrist and find out what the problem is,” Rees said. “We’ll pay for the testing and the glasses.” The club doesn’t limit its service to eyeglasses, as members recently passed out school supplies at Bick Primary School. “We distributed (supplies) to any student or parent that wanted to get one,” Rees said. “It was a backpack with pencils and basic school supplies so they could start out the school year in a positive manner.” The new road signs cost about $100 a piece, he said. The Lions Club raises money through fundraisers such as the pancake breakfast it conducts four times a year. The next one is scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 19, Rooks said. “We meet the first and third Mondays of each month at the Grant Memorial Building,” he said. Anyone interested in joining should call 734-6980.

THE ART OF SAVING LIVES

tric to install the new radio system. The amendment also pushes the completion date for the new radio systems to January of 2015.

By Jason Hoffman jhoffman@communitypress.com

BATAVIA — Clermont County Commissioners Wednesday approved resolutions to upgrade safety and emergency communications throughout the county. The commissioners approved a contract with Motorola in December that included a new radio system and installation or improvement of the county’s eight communications towers. County engineers, however, found three of its towers failed an internal engineering analysis and would need to be replaced. Work on the three towers that need to be replaced will now be completed by the county instead of Motorola. “The county can obtain the site development more efficiently than Motorola can,” said Andy Kuchta, manager of community and economic development. The county will save $170,294 by doing the work itself after adjust-

ing its contract with Motorola. The adjusted contract with Motorola will now cost taxpayers $7.5 million. As part of the upgrades, Clermont County officials agreed to spend no more than $20,851 of taxpayers’ money to contract with Thermobond Buildings to construct a building for the new communications equipment and to spend $62,150 of taxpayers’ money to contract with Whalen Elec-

Road projects

The county will begin two projects in conjunction with state funding in 2014. The Ohio Public Works Commission granted Clermont County more than $400,000 of state taxpayers’ money to partially fund the widening of the Mt. Pisgah bridge and improvements to BranchHill Guinea Pike. The county will spend $250,000 of county taxpayers’ money for its portion of the bill. No timetable has been set for the projects, but commissioners expect bids to go out sometime this year and construction to begin in 2014.

Wastewater supervisor state award David Pigg, Clermont County operations supervisor at the Wards Corner Regional Wastewater Treatment Plant, was awarded the Professional Wastewater Operations Award from the Ohio Water Environment Association this past June at its annual conference. The associaiton honors individuals with the award for doing “front line” work that has contributed practical application, professionalism and dedication to their particular wastewater treatment system. Pigg has worked for the Clermont County Water Resources Department since 2003. During that time, he became the

key front-line operator at the Lower East Fork Waste Water Treatment Plant and maintains a class iii wastewater operator license. Pigg led the development of the Lower East Fork plant’s preventive maintenance program, using the experience he gained while in the Navy. He also revised the corrective maintenance program to document breakdowns and alterations to plant equipment and occasionally he will design or devise repair parts when not readily available for purchase. During a major plant improvements project in 2006 and 2007, Pigg was instrumental in resolving non-potable water supply

reliability issues for the Dewatering Building along with streamlining the new plant seeding process. “David is a hard-working, dedicated professional who routinely goes above and beyond to improve the plant and make things better for plant staff. We are all proud of him for receiving the OWEA Award; he definitely deserves it,” said Lyle G. Bloom, director of utilities at the Clermont County Water Resources Department.

Preserve summer taste by roasting tomatoes

Roasted regular-size tomatoes with herbs (or not) Preheat oven to 400-

Roasted cherry tomatoes with herbs and garlic

This is nice since everything is mixed in a boil and then just poured onto a sprayed pan to roast. Delicious as a side dish and, if you want to freeze them, you can either leave the skins on (they may be a bit tough) or puree them as directed above. Now you can also roast these plain, with just a sprinkling of salt and pepper and oil. Preheat oven to 400425 degrees. For every pint of cherry or grape tomatoes, add a teaspoon of minced garlic, a drizzle of olive oil to coat nicely, and salt and pepper. Just mix this up in a bowl. If you have any herbs, again like basil, thyme or rosemary, chop up fine and add to taste. Pour onto sprayed baking pan and roast until skins look spotty and a bit puffy, about 20 minutes.

Freeze those garden tomatoes for winter using Rita’s recipe for roasted tomatoes.THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD

425 degrees. Cut tomatoes in half. Lay either cut side up or down (I laid mine cut side down but next time will lay them cut side up since I think that will keep more of the tomato flavor in). Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle on any herbs you like – basil, thyme, rosemary all work well. But be sure and chop them up fine. I also like to add salt and pepper. Roast until skins start to look spotty if you are roasting skin side up. Otherwise, roast until tomatoes look wrinkled

and are soft. Let cool and, if you like, remove skins. The first time I made them I didn’t remove the skins, but when I used them in cooked dishes they were a little tough. My suggestion is to remove them or put them in the blender or food processor and the skins will process small enough. You will wind up with more of a puree if you put them through the blender or food processor, but the bonus is you get the nutritious benefits of the skin. Freeze in desired quantities.

stuttering: Peter Ramig of the University of Colorado at Boulder, Diane Hill of Northwestern University, Patricia Zebrowski of the University of Iowa, and Kristin Chmela, also of Northwestern University. These experts address common concerns that parents have about their child, such as how to help the child at home and whether to seek the advice of a speech pathologist. Strategies parents can use to help reduce stuttering are given throughout the DVD and include reducing the number of questions they ask the child, focusing on taking turns during conversations, and making time to read or talk with the child in a relaxed manner. “Parents are relieved to discover that they are not alone and that other parents share their concerns,” Chmela said. “Stuttering remains a mystery to most people,” said Jane Fraser, president of the Stuttering Foundation. “Watching a young child struggle to speak can be devastating. This DVD is designed to reassure parents and families that many preschoolers stutter, that they can be helped, and how parents can play a vital role in this process.” Books and DVDs produced by the 66-year-old nonprofit Stuttering Foundation are available free to any public library.

Library DVD offers help for stuttering Parents eagerly anticipate the moment when their child first begins to talk. For some parents, it is a time of anxiety because their child struggles to get words out. As many as 5 percent of preschool children nationwide have repetitions and prolongations of sounds severe enough to be of concern to their parents. The DVD in English and Spanish, “Stuttering and Your Child: Help for Parents”, helps parents detect stuttering and take action toward helping their child and is available at most public libraries. Some libraries have an older video format. Produced by the nonprofit Stuttering Foundation, the film describes what kinds of stuttering young children may exhibit, how parents can help at home, and the role of a speech pathologist in evaluating and treating children who stutter. “Stuttering typically begins between the ages of 2 and 5,” says Barry Guitar, professor and chair of Communication Sciences at the University of Vermont in Burlington. “It may begin gradually or suddenly, and many of these children outgrow their disfluencies naturally. However, if a child continues to stutter for several months, or appears to be frustrated by it, parents should seek assistance.” Guitar appears in the DVD with other nationally recognized experts in

As I’ve mentioned before, I know when a recipe hits a chord with readers by the amount of response it generates long after it’s published. This is particularly true of seasonal recipes, like roasted tomatoes. This recipe is slightly different from one I Rita shared last Heikenfeld year. ToRITA’S KITCHEN matoes are in season right now and the homegrown/best are abundant at farmers’ markets. As for me, my tomatoes are the best I’ve ever grown and since most of them are the indeterminate type, they keep bearing all season long. I’m not even begrudging the groundhogs eating their share, there’s that many! When I do find veggies and fruit that have been bitten into by Mother Nature’s clan, I just cut them up and feed them to my girls (my chickens). They make a quick meal of them, Tomatoes are full of lycopene, which is good for our hearts, men’s prostates and our immune system. Plus the yellow and orange tomatoes have just as much nutrition as their red counterparts.

We cannot let the very people who support and promote the rampant growth of government abdicate responsibility for scandals produced within this bureaucratic sprawl. These scandals do not just challenge our right to a free press or a non-political tax code; they harm the very notion of our trust in government. Every coin and every bill we use bears the phrase “In God We Trust.” Sadly, today our trust tends to stop there; I don’t recall hearing “In Government We Trust” very often. We can never give up the constant vigilance required to safeguard our liberties and restore our trust in government. I will not give up on the goodness of the American citizen, and the possibility of responsibility and trust. U.S. Rep. Brad Wenstrup represents the 2nd Congressional District. He can be reached at 474-7777.

Our Congressional districts are not logical When cutting a birthday cake we try to give all the kids equal size pieces. The simplest way is to use a straight knife. Each piece looks more or less the same, which decreases the chance that a guest will complain about getting a smaller piece. This simple method of division has apparently not reached the state house. When one looks at the map of congressional districts, one has to wonder what sort of mathematics was at work. The congressional districts have the most irregular borders seen on the map of the earth. The 2nd District covers Pike, Highland, Brown, Adams and Clermont counties. It also has an enclave in Hamilton County. Madeira is in it. Indian Hill, to the east of it isn’t. Indeed the 2nd District reaches all the way west to Mount Healthy. The first district manages to cover some of Hamilton County, squeeze through a corridor about two miles wide and then suddenly expand and cover most of Warren County. In the 11th District Akron is disconnected from its surroundings and connected through a narrow neck to Cleveland. The 6th District starts at the southern border of the state across from Huntington, West Virginia, and extends all the way to Youngstown. It’s not that our state legislatures don’t know how to do math. They do it very well. This practice of drawing up strange maps, otherwise known as gerrymandering, has been practiced for 200 years in this country. It is practiced both by Repub-

CH@TROOM Last week’s question Should U.S. lawmakers and their staffs continue to receive a federal contribution toward the health insurance that they must purchase through soon-to-open exchanges created by President Barack Obama’s signature healthcare law to prevent the largely unintended loss of healthcare benefits for 535 members of the Senate and House of Representatives and thousands of Capitol Hill staff. Why or why not?

“Yes. Everyone scheduled to receive a contribution from employers should still receive that contribution, no matter for whom they work. “If the conservatives and Obama-haters would just give it a chance they’d see all the good that the Affordable Care Act can accomplish instead of trying to repeal it 40 more times in Congress. “It’s meant to help the poor and uninsured just like the New Deal back 70-odd years ago during the Great Depression.” TRog

“Although it would be nice if making lawmakers pay for their own health care would bring their attention to the plight of most Americans, the cost of their personal insurance is chump change compared to the campaign contributions they get from the special interests in the medical field. “Since Citizen’s United it’s a free-forall for rich individuals and corporations. The only thing holding some of the worst of them back is the sheer impracticality of most of their ideas. “What would work better is if more citizen voters would pay more attention to how some of these creeps in Columbus and Washington vote, and give them unlimited vacation time at the next election. “Unfortunately with the media breaking into venues, which allow people to get the news they want as opposed to the news that is actually true, we’re going to have an uphill battle getting any sort of consensus on public health in our nation.

Every week we ask readers a question they can reply to via e-mail. Send your answers to espangler@communitypress.com with Chatroom in the subject line.

“Fortunately, the Affordable Care Act is already cutting costs for many of us, and even if it doesn’t solve the bigger problems it will set the stage for continued dialogue.” N.F.

“Kind of a moot question. The Congress will do whatever is best for them and not what is best for the American people. Period.” J.Z.

“The Democrats yes, the Republicans no! Seriously, whether its health care or retirement, government should not be allowed to vote its own members and staff better benefits than those available to the rest of the population. “A single term in congress shouldn’t entitle you to anything more than Cobra benefits while you look for new employment. If ex members of government had

to survive on Medicare or Medicaid and Social Security those would be good programs, and yes, we all might have to contribute a bit more to ensure their longterm future.” D.R.

“If these people are already receiving a contribution from the government (their employer) it should continue. If this means they will not have to get Obama-care like the rest of us – shame on them! “We should all be in this boat together. That way if and when it starts to sink they’ll have an incentive to fix or replace it.” R.V.

“Of course not! But this rodeo clown has set a new standard of picking winners and losers for political reasons, paybacks for contributors and favors to his base. “Large corporations, unions and the IRS and now lawmakers are getting special exemptions from this disasterous law. Most hard working Americans are not surprised by a good screwing from the federal government, but unfairness to this degree creates tremendous anger and animosity. “When is the last time you said: ‘Wow, this will be great’ when you heard of a new law or government program??” D.J.H.

licans and Democrats. The party leaders are trying to make sure the districts are divided in a way which will help their party stay in power. They are trying to eat the Oded Zmora COMMUNITY PRESS cake and keep it all to themselves. GUEST COLUMNIST What happens is that instead of having a government for the people, by the people we are stuck with a government for the parties, by the parties. The possibility of real debate and possible change becomes impossible. The minorities in each district or state feel their votes don’t count and they have no chance of changing government. The elected officials don’t represent the interests of all their constituents. How can U.S. Rep. Wenstrup represent the farmer in Pike County and the urban population of Mount Healthy 100 miles away? If the ruling parties would take a moral stance and make the map more logical, government would improve. Instead of talking to the interest groups controlling each party, the representatives would have to communicate with a bigger, more diverse audience - the voters.

In my youth, I always had a strong faith in those who were chosen to lead. I felt confident in the character of Pope John Paul II and Ronald Reagan, as well as Sparky Anderson managing the Cincinnati Reds’ “Big Red Machine.” And while my faith was occasionally tested by events like Watergate, there was always a general confidence that our leaders were good people trying to do the right thing. But now, it’s no wonder Americans don’t trust their government anymore. Don’t get me wrong, I came of age politically under the shadow of Watergate. Nixon’s misdeeds were a shocking breach of the public trust. It was a time when our core faith in public institutions was fundamentally challenged. Yet, even as a teenager in the 1970s, I recognized our leaders had done wrong. But just as importantly, I understood that those who did wrong were held responsible, and we witnessed a standard be set. Going forward, perhaps naively, I hoped government officials would be honest and therefore trustworthy leaders, like Harry Truman who felt that “the buck stopped” with him. A decade later, President Reagan governed on the phrase “trust but verify.” This holds true to the Founders’ original design, with three branches that act as a series of checks and balances on each other, protecting from the overreach or abuse of power by one. Now, it seems to be markedly different. Today, we are facing serious breaches of the public trust, each uniquely disarming. The IRS is targeting Americans for their political views and the Department of Justice is labeling journalists as co-conspirators, simply for exercising their First Amendment

Tigers football to spread it out By Scott Springer sspringer@communitypress.com

BETHEL — Second-year coach Bill Jenike would like to build his Bethel-Tate High School football program with more depth, but that’s easier said than done. While he attracted a good number of interested players in the winter, the warmer months brought a slight drop-off to the area. “We get in the summer and a lot our kids have to work,” Jenike said. “We’re actually ahead of last year, believe it or not.” With a coaching staff sporting experience at such venues as St. Xavier, Western Brown and Mariemont, the head Tiger knows the value of numbers. Defensive coordinator Bill Gabriel has coached with Jenike at several stops, while offensive line coach Rich Cox is back on the field and around the classrooms. “I need guys in the building because I’m not,” Jenike said. “He was at Milford last year and he’s been at Western Brown and he was actually the head coach here about 10 years ago.” Returning at quarterback for the Tigers is junior Allan Haave with a new offense. “We’re going to run the pistol spread offense,” Jenike said. “Spread the field and try to utilize our best athletes. We have some kids that can catch the ball.” One of those is Dylan Scott over from the soccer team. Jenike had some success utilizing Tyler Atkins from soccer last year and would like to get Scott

on the receiving end of some Haave hurls. “He can run and do one thing really well — catch the football,” Jenike said. “He’s not a big kid. We have some kids that can stretch it (the field) a little bit so we’re going to get out of the Wing-T.” Blace Haviland was a Southern Buckeye Conference-National Division player last season and will lead by going two ways again this season. Another that could get some Tiger touches is lanky Samuel Price. “Last year he played tight end,” Jenike said. “This year we’re going to move him out where he’s more comfortable.

He’s pretty athletic and can catch the ball. We’re going to utilize his skills that way rather than putting him at tight end to block.” Brandon Lewis is another two-way starter for Bethel-Tate and one of just five seniors. Leading the beefy ones for Bethel-Tate will be Nate Stanton and Creighton Newberry. “We’re a little lean down there as we had a couple kids who didn’t come back out,” Jenike said. The Tigers will sport new uniforms and helmets this year and have six home games. Jenike altered the schedule some, dropping Western Brown for

Bethel-Tate’s last non-losing season was 2009 when they were 5-5. “Everything looks good; we just have to get our kids out,” Jenike said. “Schematically, we made some changes to help our talent. We just have to get our numbers where we can have a JV team to develop our kids.”

Barons low in numbers, high on pride By Scott Springer sspringer@communitypress.com

AMELIA — Starting his fifth year off of Clough Pike, Amelia football coach Randy Hospelhorn is trying to get his squad over the proverbial hump. Last season, the Barons were 4-6 and prior to that they’ve finished 5-5. “Our numbers are down, but the kids we have show a great attitude,” Hospelhorn said. “They’re a lot more focused on accomplishing something. They haven’t had a winning record since ‘98 and they’re focused on changing that.” Borrowing from a popular 1970s George LuHospelhorn cas film, the Barons are hanging their helmets on their “Darkside Defense.” The group led by linebackers Carter Hounshell, Sean Stewart and defensive linemen Cohen Cantor and T.J. Reed where practice jerseys displaying their Darth Vader influence. “At times, we look like we know what we’re doing,” Hospelhorn said. Minus graduated quarterback Gabe Weaver, the signalcalling will fall between the aforementioned Stewart, Ty Nicodemus or 6-foot-3 freshman specimen Cage Meyer. “Ty (Nicodemus) stepped in for us last year when our quarterback went down,” Hospelhorn said. “The offense will be similar to what we ran last year. We’re in the pistol spread. We do a lot of running and a lot of

passing. We do what we have to do.” When they do run, expect fullback T.J. Troxel or senior Jake Miller to tote the loaf. “I’m looking for some good things from some of our young guys,” Hospelhorn said. “Jake Miller had a good offseason. He added a lot to his bench and got a lot stronger. I expect him to have a really good season.”

He also expects the Southern Buckeye Conference schedule to be challenging week in and week out. “Any Friday night, like they always say,” Hospelhorn said. “All the teams are pretty good. You always expect Western Brown, Goshen and New Richmond to be really tough. Batavia, Bethel-Tate, Norwood they’re all good games.”

BATAVIA — The Batavia Bulldogs football team had a historic 2012, going undefeated in the regular season and winning the program’s first-ever playoff game. While head coach Don Sizer graduated 14 seniors from that squad – and has only six seniors on the roster this season – he said there’s no reason Batavia can’t have another good year. “I would say we are reloading,” he said. “I think the most important thing was for the kids to taste that playoff success. They know what it’s like, the extra attention they got. They know all the work it took to get there and they want to go back.” Sizer relied on his assistants – Caleb Corrill, Chad Ward and Matt Gottis – to run most of the off-season strength and conditioning programs. All agreed the Bulldogs benefited from their efforts. From a players’ standpoint, KeShawn Foley returns for his junior season at quarterback the focal point of one of area’s few non-spread offenses – in Batavia’s Wing-T scheme.

A group of sophomores – allpurpose back Shawn Howell, tight end Shawn Adams, running backs Dylan Wagner and Sammy Humbert and kicker/receiver Joe Sickles – should see significant playing time. “We need some leadership,” Sizer said. “I know we have a lot on the team, but we’re waiting for them to assert themselves that way. The young guys are filling into the spots really successfully. I don’t want to say we’re surprised, but they are exceeding our expectations.”

New Richmond revamps offense under new coach By Mark D. Motz

mmotz@communitypress.com

NEW RICHMOND — That chill you feel may be the beginning phases of a certain spot in the netherworld undergoing climate change. If Lucifer dons a parka, maybe it’s because New Richmond High School will run a spread offense this season. “The offense has been a total overhaul,” understated firstyear head football coach Josh Stratton said. “I think our offensive tempo is pretty good right now, especially considering how different a system this is than what they’re used to. We really keep the defense of balance. It’s going to be hard to prepare for us.” Stratton knows of which he speaks; his team at Lloyd (Ky.) last season had 11 different players score offensive touchdowns. Still, defense will be crucial for the Lions. Three quarters of the secondary returns, including seniors Blake Thompson and Jake Hauke, along with junior Jimmy Snider. At 6-foot-2, 210 pounds, senior Evan Brigner anchors the linebackers. Yet the biggest strength may be up front with senior nose guard Will Lytle and end Kenny Booker. Senior Levi Simpson returns at quarterback, energized by the possibility of throwing the ball a lot more than he’s had the opportunity to do in the past. Seniors Malik Davis and Pierce Burnam will be his pri-

mary targets to start the season, but keep an eye on sophomore receiver Austin Torrens. The speedy, strong 6-foot-2, 190pound receiver made the regional track meet in the 400 and 800 as a freshman. Junior tailback Tyler Anderson ran for about 700 yards in just five games as a sophomore. He runs behind a veteran offensive line that includes center Cole Goodnew, left tackle Jacob Hurst – whom Stratton called the strongest player pound for

pound on the roster – left guard Nathan Snider (Jimmy’s brother) and 6-foot-3, 290-pound sophomore right tackle Tyler Sammons. Stratton said Norwood and “that school in Mt. Orab” – not deigning to say Western Brown - remain the favorites in the SBC, but he’s not looking that far ahead yet. “I just want to be 1-0,” Stratton said. “We have to worry about Indian Hill first and foremost.”

Rockets seek sustained success By Mark D. Motz mmotz@communitypress.com

MT. WASHINGTON — The McNicholas Rockets football team has been to the playoffs two of the last three seasons. Head coach Mike Orlando looks for more of the same in 2013. “We want a sustained success,” he said. “For us a 5-5 year is a bad year. If we’re not out here competing for games and titles, we’re not where we want to be as a program. It’s not going to be easy. “It’s not that we’re terribly young, but we have some inexperience. We have to grow up and become some leaders. This senior class has not had a lot of success on its own. I think they were 0-for as freshmen and didn’t have a winning record as JVs. As juniors, they were in the shadow of last year’s seniors. It’s time for them to step up.” Senior Bryan Corpuz leads six returning starters on offense. Orlando said the 6-foot-4 lineman is a definite college prospect. Also back up front are senior guard Kent Schaeper, junior center Nate Gorman and junior guard Will Allgeier. Junior tackle Zach Wood, a transfer student, rounds out the line. They will protect a backfield including junior quarterback Luke Sulken, junior tailback Sean Byrne and senior running back Dom Gabriele. Receivers include seniors Matt Curran and Kevin Schmidt, as well as junior Ted Tekulve. “It’s no secret, we’re going to try to make our way running the football,” Orlando said. “We’re going to be very up tempo, no huddle. We want to run a play every 15 seconds in real time and keep defenses off balance. But at the end of the day you

‘Burg bringing speed to new season By Mark D. Motz mmotz@communitypress.com

WILLIAMSBURG — The Williamsburg Wildcats football team enters 2013 with a new attitude following a 3-7 season and 2-2 mark in the Southern Buckeye Conference that left them in third place. “We’ve got a little bit of size, but we want to change it up a little bit,” said head coach Scott Lefker. “Usually teams run a spread to cover for a smaller line. We’re doing it because we want to get the ball to more players in more ways. The bigger line should give us time to do that.” The line includes a trio of returning seniors in Dalton Smith, Nick Felts and Brad Jones. They protect a veteran quarterback in senior Lane Edmonston and a junior running back Mason Hall who ran for1,200 yards as a sophomore. The receiving corps includes seniors Jordan Wright and Jared Spurlock. (Edmonston) is scary to a lot of teams when he scrambles,” Lefker said. “With our scheme, we want defenses on their heels. They won’t know if he’s going to run or throw. The quarterback, the tailback and all four receiver positions can run out of our spread.” Wright also lines up at defensive tackle as he chases the Williamsburg record for career tackles. He is joined up front by juniors Joe Morgan and Billy Cadwallader. Linebackers include Smith and classmates Isaiah Bradford and Spencer Clowery. Junior Austin Horn and Evan Barge man the secondary with sophomore Kurt Meisberger. A recent scrimmage against East Clinton revealed some good signs for the Wildcats.

“I like our speed and we scored on defense,” Lefker said. “If you can do that every week, you’re going to win a lot of games. I like the attitude and leadership this team has. They’re getting it, working

hard.” Williamsburg has a quirky schedule that sends them on the road four straight games weeks three to six, before closing with a four-game home stand. “We put all our eggs in one

basket to beat Reading in the opener,” Lefker said. “If we can beat Reading, we will have a chance to come home 1-0 to play Paint Valley and go into our long road streak with some confidence.”

Goshen Warriors adopt spread, rely on speed By Mark D. Motz mmotz@communitypress.com

GOSHEN — The Goshen Warriors come into 2013 after an Oreo football season in 2012 – solid on the outside, but kind of mooshy in the middle – in which they went 5-5, but 0-4 in the Southern Buckeye Conference. “We stumbled in the middle of the year with our league schedule,” said head coach Mark Slagle. “We started strong, but lost a lot of close games in the league. Then we finished with a win.” Slagle graduated 14 players from that team and instituted a new look for this one. “We’ll be in the shotgun every snap,” he said. “We’ve always been wishbone and Wing-T, but we’re committed to this spread offense. It’s become the mainstream for a lot of different reasons. We felt like it was time for us. Now five, six, seven, eight kids can touch the ball, which is a lot more exciting for them. “We’ve got a lot of kids to replace, but we’re replacing them with juniors and seniors, which we feel good about,” Slagle said. “We’ve got some untested kids, but they’re quick and they’re pretty athletic.” Among the newbies, sophomore Isaac Miller-Hart will receive plenty of attention at quarterback. He’s protected by a veteran line that includes

senior center Josh Harville and guards Brandon Lunsford and Hunter Hines. Senior Jake Nelson returns at tailback, as does junior Nick Brown at receiver. Defensively, Goshen will play a 4-2-5 base with lots of man-to-man coverage. “We’re trying to match up with their ids in space. We feel like we have the kids who can cover. We’re going to rely on speed and athleticism. I think

we’ve got good, skilled kids to do it.” Jimmy Carr and Pierce Elmore play defensive end with Lunsford and Sebastian Wolfenbarger at linebackers.

OWENSVILLE — The Clermont Northeastern High School football team struggled to a 1-9 finish last year, including an 0-4 record in the Southern Buckeye Conference. Head coach Jason Conley said there’s nowhere to go but up. “We’ve had significant improvement in the weight room and in our conditioning,” he said. “Our best thing is these kids get along really well together. They have fun playing together, but they work hard while they do it.” Conley brought in a new staff to point the team in the right direction. Among Conley them are offensive coordinator Steve Dahleimer, defensive backs and receivers coach Rob Lorenzen, line coach Matt Lester and quarterbacks/linebackers coach Shane Weterhouse. They’ll teach the pistol spread offense and 3-5 defense the Rockets will play. Offensively, senior Dylan Creager returns at quarterback, protected by a line featuring senior center Josh Fortner and Owen Underwood. Sophomore Dalton Miracle returns at running back while junior Steven Allen plays slot receiver. Keep an eye on Tramaine Smith at receiver and cornerback. Defensively, senior Blake Bishop and Fortner return to play line and linebacker. Miracle is a linebacker. Creager plays in the secondary with Al-

len and junior Trey Amann. Sophomore Tyler Cole returns on the line. Senior Matthew Bingaman comes back to CNE to play offensive line and linebacker after living in Alabama his sophomore and junior seasons. Seniors Rusty Daniels and Brandon Stahl are back after not playing as juniors. First-year senior Wayne Tartar brings some depth to the offensive line.

Juniors Darian Bullock and Scott Meadows should help at receiver and on the line, offensively, while 6-foot-3, 300-pound sophomore transfer Donald Hahn from Fayetteville ought to contribute as well. “We’ve got some more weapons and the continuity is much better this year,” Conley said. “As far as size goes, we’ll be right here with everyone in our league this year.”

UC Clermont volleyball starts new season

The UC Clermont volleyball team is back on the court preparing for the 2013 campaign. Coming off their seventh consecutive appearance at the U.S. Collegiate Athletic Association National Championship tournament in New York, the Cougars are working hard in hopes of putting together another stellar season. Head Coach Joe Harpring expects the squad Harping to be quick, deep and athletic this year. “We plan to use our depth to keep everyone fresh and avoid dragging a bit at the end of the season,” said Harpring who is beginning his ninth year as head coach at UC Clermont (13th year overall coaching at UC Clermont). “We have the luxury of a substantial number of talented individuals.” In spite of some key losses to graduation, etc., the Cougars are returning eight quality players and a talented transfer for the coming campaign.

ter Amber Lawrence (FelicityFranklin) and defensive specialist Samantha Gilbert (Franklin County, Ind.). The others are walk-on defensive specialist Taylor Herrmann (Glen Este) and outside hitter Sarah Barrial (Goshen). All four won numerous awards during their high school careers. The Cougars will face an especially challenging schedule in 2013. In addition to the usual strong USCAA, NCAA and independent opponents, Clermont will also meet a number of higher level NAIA programs. “This year we may be facing our toughest schedule ever,” said Harpring. “We want to be prepared to play the best in case we are fortunate enough to receive another post season bid.” The season will kick off on Friday, Aug. 23, as the Cougars host Ohio Christian University – a team selected to the National Christian College Athletic Association (NCCAA) National Tournament in 2012. Game time is 6 p.m. in the Student Activities Center. For more information about the UC Clermont volleyball team visit: www.ucclermont.edu.

Haley Weber (Mariemont) enter their senior seasons and will be counted on to lead the squad. Junior outside hitter Kaitlyn Miller (Sycamore) and junior defensive specialist Courtney Maier (Newport Central Catholic) will also lend a veteran pres-

ence to the team. Five sophomores will be back with a year of collegiate experience under their belts – middle hitter Kiley Collins (Goshen), middle hitter Heather Rowland (Norwood), setter Alex Robb (Amelia), right-side

hitter Shannon Arnold (Glen Este) and outside hitter Amber Peters (Loveland and Thomas More College). Four newcomers will supplement the veteran core of the Clermont team. Two are true incoming freshmen – outside hit-

Antique Machinery Show was a blast from the past some drink you could get in days gone by. Actually it is root beer, but that’s the name. George There Rooks was the OLE FISHERMAN blacksmith shop that was drawing a lot of attention. My dad had a blacksmith shop and would shoe horses. The sawmill was run by steam engines the fellers that run the saw mill sure knew what they were doing. Some of the logs were over 10 feet long and probably 14 inches in diameter. They had a veneer machine. This machine was used years ago. There were several folks carrying sheets of cedar that was something folks had never seen especially working. There was a young lady that was grinding corn for cornmeal this gal knew what she was

doing. Her father-in-law Roger Neal had this mill and several old cars and trucks. Now she and her husband have the mill. We got to see the steam engines plowing. One plowed with a five bottom plow and the other had four bottom plow. They said the horses would be there on Saturday but we didn’t get back there to see them. When I was young my Dad had a Farmall 12. My brother and I would plow with the horses. My brother would drive and I held the plow. There were over 10 steam engines there. I talked to some of the folks, one was a Baker operated by a young feller age 23. I think they used the Baker engine to run the sawmill then they switched and used a Case steam engine. There were three Frick engines that were steam and three oil pull tractors. Now this event would not be as good as it is if

the homemade ice cream folks were not there. The Mannings have been there for years. They have two freezers that make five gallons each time. When we were there waiting for some to get finished Mr. and Mrs. Manning said these two freezers made 37 batches. There was so much to see. The flea market was busy and the craft barn too with several vendors. There were wagons to take folks over the area to see the different things. The camping area was busy with about 125 units, the campers started coming in early so they could get the best spot. Saturday Ruth Ann and I worked. I was outside taking tickets and Ruth Ann was inside selling tickets. I received a book, on the O.V.A.M. It was the first 10 years boy is it interesting. It seems there was a meeting of five men that met and

Howdy Folks, We had a request from Mary Kelch a while back for yarn to make hats and scarves for the homeless shelters. There is one in Batavia behind the fire house. A lady called the other day and brought a big bag of yarn and gave it to Ruth Ann at the cardiac rehab last Wednesday. The ladies sure appreciate this donation. There is a need for more yarn for these folks, so if you have any surplus yarn these folks will use it wisely. If you missed the Ohio Valley Antique Machinery show you sure missed one of the best shows in our area. We saw a lady taking a picture of her daughter about 4 years old in one of the seats. There were ladies setting at the teachers desk too. Then there was the general store that was run by Earl Pringle, his wife and daughter. They had sarsaparilla; that is

trator, Greater Milford Area Historical Society. “The Art Affaire committee is extremely pleased with the diversity and quality of the work presented for jury review by the participating artists. There should be art and fine crafts that appeal to everyone at this year’s event, and we’re expecting record attendance this year.” Proceeds from the event support the GMAHS Scholarship Fund as well as other Greater Milford Area Historical Society programming. Admission is free with public parking available in the state Route 28/Main Street side of the Kroger and PNC Bank parking lot, Milford. A shuttle will run continuously throughout the day between the parking lot and Art Affaire.

“From the first Call for Artists, to the jury review process, and up to the day of the actual show, they provide on-going updates I can use in my own personal advertising of the event. The entire process is extremely pleasant, friendly and more thorough than other area shows in which I’ve been involved. I love participating in Art Affaire.” Art Affaire will also celebrate the arts of music and writing. This year's slate of musical entertainment features the Clermont Festival Chorale Combo (a new instrumental group), Wild Carrot, The Melissa Smith Group, and The Clermont Chorale (vocal group). Additionally, Art Affaire will conduct a booksigning showcasing a number of local authors and their recent publications. “It’s amazing how we’ve seen the interest in Art Affaire explode over the past few years,” said Donna Amann, adminis-
