75¢ BECAUSE COMMUNITY MATTERS

NEW LAW AIMS TO SLOW HEAD TRAUMA IN SPORTS Lower-body injuries top list among youth sports

By Mark D. Motz

mmotz@communitypress.com

Arguably the best player on the field, wasn’t. A week into contact drills during preseason football practices at New Richmond High School, a four-year starter and team leader had participated for part of only one practice. Not because of bad grades. Not for disciplinary reasons. Not even because he didn’t feel up to playing. Rather, he’d been held out to comply with the law. A new Ohio requirement – signed into law in December of 2012 and enacted in April of this year – prevents players with concussions from returning to action too soon. This particular player took a blow to the head on the first day of practice and had yet to receive medical clearance to play. (The Community Press is not naming the student-athlete for privacy reasons; he has since been cleared to play.) “You can’t be too careful,” first-year Lions head coach Josh Stratton said. “He had his bell rung, for sure. But with this new law in Ohio, anything that even looks like a concussion has to be taken off the field, tested and cleared. “If a player is dehydrated and gets a headache from that and tells a coach or a trainer, we have to have them checked. We’ve lost some player days to that kind of scenario, but keeping kids safe is a lot more important than sending them out there if they’re injured or potentially injured.” The legislation known as House Bill 143 “implements statewide standards (for) when a young athlete demonstrates the signs or symptoms of a concussion or traumatic brain injury,” said state Rep. Michael Stinziano (D-Columbus), one of the bill’s co-authors. “The legislation also prohibits a school authority from allowing a student to practice for or compete in interscholastic athletics until the student has submitted a signed form stating that the student and the student's parent or other guardian has received a concussion and head injury information sheet created by the (Ohio) Department of Health.” Such precautions are a far cry from the playing days of University of Cincinnati orthopedist Dr. Angelo Colosimo – a former Bengals team doctor who was a high school and college player in his own right. “When I played, you got drilled, you didn’t even know where you were and you went back to the huddle and carried the ball again,” Colosimo said. “It’s amazing where the science has gone when you look at the long-term damage of traumatic brain injuries. It affects you long term. The idea is to limit that. “You can’t play (football) without contact. If you play this game, you’re going to get your head dinged. It’s going to happen. What we’re trying to do is to limit the damage that’s done.” Dr. Edward Marcheschi leads The Christ Hospital sports medicine concussion management program and supports the new state law. “I think the state law is a necessary step to ensure that people involved in sports are being educated and that our youth athletes are being protected from suffering from a potentially catastrophic injury when the brain is traumatized from a concussion,” he said. “Concussion

you tear an ACL, you can fix it and it doesn’t affect your memory, give you dementia or depress you. When you start to mess with the brain, there’s a lot of long term implications.” “There’s a lot more knowledge to what happens to their brains later in life,” Anderson High School trainer April Nierman said. “A lot of kids that have gotten their bell rung have sat out a period of time. There’s a progression to come back. It’s a period of four to five days to get them to come back after their symptoms are gone.” The new law broadens the protection by requiring standards for those participating in youth sports organizations not affiliated with the Ohio High School Athletic Association.

While concussions may get the most attention when it comes to injuries, they account for just 14 percent of all youth sports injuries (age 19 and under) according to a study done by USA Today. The study analyzed youth sports injuries in 2011 and 2012 and determined the three most common sports injuries are sprains/strains, fractures and contusions. When being more specific, Oxford Physical Therapy’s Liz Reis said injuries to the ankle, anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) and the shoulder’s are the most common injuries she sees as a physical therapist among high school athletes. In today’s world of expensive shoes, the argument has come about whether or not a shoe can cause an injury. The perception is you see more ACL tears today than you did 10-20 years ago when shoes weren’t as advanced, but Reis believes there are a variety of factors that play into any injury. “… There is a push for a more natural shoe,” she said. “From a physical therapist’s perspective, if your foot mechanics are off, then it’s going to work up the chain and cause problems. … There is no rhyme or reason as to when these people are developing these injuries, but in theory, most people need a good, supportive shoe.” Reis has seen an increase in Iliotibial Band Syndrome, or more commonly known as the ITSB, in high school athletes. Also known as “Runners Knee,” according to runnersworld.com it occurs when the IT band, a ligament that runs down the outside of the thigh from the hip to the shin, is tight or inflamed. The problem with the injury is it can be hidden with the use of anti-inflammatories and many athletes get back to their respective sport before the injury is fully healed. “The injury is not so much worrisome, but it can be difficult to rehab,” Reis said. “The (IT band) crosses the knee, so every time we bend our knee the band actually slips under the bone and it’s just a repetitive injury. People just need to give it time to heal, rest and strengthen the other muscles.” One trend Reis has seen lately is an increase in hamstring strains in younger athletes. The reason is factually unknown, but Reis has her opinion. “I think it goes along with people gaining an understanding of stretching and warming up,” she said. “Some kids as they are going through growth spurts, their bones are elongating and the muscles are being forced to stretch out at the same time. So the kids are trying to stretch and using these muscles when

is a mild traumatic brain injury, but there is nothing ‘mild' about it.” Ask Loveland parent Scott Schlesner, whose son Cole took a line drive to the head in a summer-league baseball game four years ago, causing traumatic brain injury. “It’s really encouraging that there is a greater sense of awareness in society about the dangers of head injury,” Schlesner said. “Unlike a lot of other injuries, head injury is the one thing that nobody really knows the long-term ramifications, how they may affect you, down the road. UC trainer Bob Mangine, who sees patients of all ages through Novacare in Northern Kentucky and Cincinnati, agreed. “It’s critical because of the long-term problem you can develop,” he said. “If

reporting methods. Bringing the village’s accounting and financial reporting methods into compliance is important if village officials want to be removed from the state’s fiscal emergency category. A fiscal emergency was declared on Aug. 24, 2010, after a fiscal analysis revealed the village had deficit fund balances of $401,178 and $340,766 as of Dec. 31, 2009, and May 31, 2010, respectively. A seven-member commission was appointed by the state to help the village regain financial stability. The recent auditor’s report states the village does not maintain an inventory of capital assets, and because of that cannot determine if items have been lost or stolen and if the assets are being used in the most efficient manner, among other things. In addition, budgeted revenues and appropriations in the accounting

system used by the village do not agree with the most current supporting documents, according to the report. It states, the “Fiscal Officer should compare budgeted amounts in the accounting system to the current amended certificate and appropriations measures as passed by council to ensure that recorded amounts are accurate.” The auditor’s office also reports that village officials maintain inadequate personnel files and only the police department uses vacation forms that are signed by the employee and supervisor. The report also mentions a bank reconciliation difference of $2,550.83, which relates to

an audit performed in 2010. “This reconciling item has been carried on the reconciliation for over a year and needs to be documented and posted,” according to the report. In conclusion, the report states, “It is our opinion that the current methods of accounting and financial reporting of the Village of Bethel are not completely in compliance with Chapter 117 of the Revised Code and the requirements of the Auditor of State.” The report studied a period from Jan.1, 2012, to Feb. 19, 2013. “This report on accounting methods states whether there are ade-

quate controls in place to assure confidence in the records,” wrote Dave Yost, auditor of the state, in the report. During Village Council’s recent meeting, Bill Gilpin, Bethel’s fiscal officer, said he met with a representative from the state auditor’s office about its recent report. “By far and large we are in great shape, (but) there are two or three things we’ll need to work on in the next month or so,” he said. The state auditor’s office, in the meantime, has officially begun the paperwork to remove the village from fiscal emergency, Gilpin told council. “They like the way we’re doing everything, it’s just some things aren’t recorded on paper – so we’re going to have to adopt a couple of written policy-type documents.” Gilpin refused to comment on what the village needs to work on. “It is still a bit premature to address the items,” Gilpin wrote in an email.

they are working out, so they start to get some strain in the muscle. I think that is where a lot of these hamstring strains are coming in as they go through these growth spurts.” ACL tears, ITSB and hamstring problems are just three of hundreds of injuries that occur each high school sports season, but the prevention is all the same: Rest, adding prevention and strengthening exercises and proper technique top the list of way to prevent injuries. “These statistics don’t have to be part of the game if we take some simple precautions,” Kate Carr of Safe Kids Worldwide said as part of the USA Today study.

Water upgrades to cost millions By Keith BieryGolick kbierygolick@communitypress.com

BETHEL — The water won’t stop flowing in Bethel any time soon – if residents can afford the multimillion dollar upgrades. Village Council recently passed five ordinances to improve its water infrastructure. All told, the immediate cost for consultation and planning services is $225,800. Ultimately, the projects could end up costing almost $2.5 million. The first expense was repainting the water tower on state Route 133.

“We already accepted this by motion, but we should have done it by legislation, that’s why it’s up tonight,” said Travis Dotson, village administrator. Council voted to spend $302,800 to enter into a contract with American Suncraft Company to repaint the water tower on state Route 133. Dotson previously said the repainting should be done by the end of the year. Officials will pay for the repainting in a threeyear span, he said. Council also agreed on a contract with Brand-

stetter Carroll for engineering and consultation to replace the water tower on Tower Alley. “We had attempted to replace this tower approximately eight years ago, but we had to abandon that project when steel prices climbed suddenly following our bidding process,” Dotson said in an email. Construction bids for the tower are going to be advertised in February, according to the proposed schedule in the contract.

Replacing the water tower is estimated to cost $650,000, according to a letter Bruce Brandstetter, vice president of Brandstetter Carroll, sent village officials. The100,000-gallon tower will be replaced with a 250,000-gallon tower, Dotson said in an email. Officials also passed ordinances to begin improving water infrastructure and underground piping, said Jim Rees, village council member. “We’re in the engineer-

ing phase right now,” Rees said. “You got to do the engineering before you can do the bid work.” The infrastructure improvements are part of a three-year project, he said. Council also agreed to enter into a consultation agreement with Brandstetter Carroll to upgrade the northern and central water mains. Brandstetter estimates replacing the two water mains will cost $1.31 million.

“This will allow for better control and circulation of water within the village,” Doston said in an email. Officials plan to use Ohio Environmental Protection Agency grants and loans to fund the project. All of these projects will be paid from the Water Enterprise Improvement fund, which is funded through water rates and not by tax money, according to Bethel Mayor Alan Ausman.

BATAVIA — Clermont County Commissioner Ed Humphrey joined his fellow southern Ohio elected officials Wednesday seeking changes to the state tax code. The Ohio House of Representatives Tax Reform Legislative Study Committee met at the University of Cincinnati East campus to as the second stop of a five-hearing process. Humphrey recommended the committee look at, among other things, charging sales tax on internet purchases and giving more power to county commissioners over local budgets. “Local businesses are hurt by sales from outside the state,” Humphrey said of what he called the Internet tax loophole. “Make the playing field even.” County offices like the auditor, recorder and courts are substantial expenditures of public money that have no oversight from the commissioners and that needs to change, he told the committee. In addition to the oversight, Humphrey wanted the state to give counties the ability to charge more permissive sales and use taxes and a local option for motor vehicle licensing. The committee also heard testimony from a variety of county, city and township representatives as well as members of the state’s Department of Taxation and Office of Budget and Management. Main points of contention at the meeting were

whether cutting taxes for business actually increases jobs in Ohio and how local governments can better provide services through cross-border collaboration. Gavin Leonard, state director for One Ohio Now – an advocacy group for taxation – said tax cuts don’t translate to an increase in business and job growth in a state, contrary to talking points from Gov. John Kasich’s administration. Tax exemptions, at some levels do help Ohioans, he said, but many are giveaways to special-interest groups. Discussing concerns over businesses leaving because of taxes, Leonard said migration is simply not a concern. “The employment rate in the manufacturing industry is down 17.7 percent,” Leonard said, citing Bureau of Labor statistics comparing 2005 and 2013. “It’s time to re-evaluate and do a more honest assessment of finding that right balance between what Ohioans want and need in terms of both services and tax rates.” State Tax Commissioner Joe Testa said he is proud of the accomplishments under Gov. John Kasich. Ohio, Testa said, has balanced its budget, restored a rainy-day fund, eliminated the estate tax and replaced the corporate-franchise tax – all goals the governor had when taking office.

BETHEL — The new principal

at Bethel-Tate Middle School says students, parents, teachers and staff can all expect the same thing from her: “I like to have an open communication system because I am very approachable and always willing to listen,” said Christen Davis, who this school year succeeded long-time principal Steve Gill in the top post at the middle school at 649 W Plane St. in Bethel. “We are all a part of a team working towards the same goal of our students succeeding and creDavis ating life-long learners and productive citizens. “I like to be very involved and like to work closely with the vested members of the school and community to make sure our students succeed both in and out of the classroom while maintaining high expectations,” said Davis, who lives in Milford.

Melissa Kircher, superintendent of the Bethel-Tate Local Schools, said Davis’ teaching and administrative experience makes her a good fit for her new job. Davis’ family history is a positive, too. “I come from a long line of educators,” Davis said. “I always wanted and knew I would be an educator. “My mom is a retired high school teacher and counselor, my aunt is a current middle school language arts teacher and I have several great aunts and a grandmother who were also educators,” Davis said. “I have always loved school and I wish for my students to have that same passion. “I want their school experiences to be both productive and fulfilling for them,” Davis said. Davis said she wanted to be

principal of the Bethel-Tate Middle School because “I love the middle school age group.” “I wanted to be the principal at Bethel-Tate Middle School specifically because I am familiar with the success of the school district,” Davis said. “I am also aware of the type of close community that Bethel is and that really makes for a great connection and for successful schools. “I have received such a warm welcome from parents and students as well as the staff,” Davis said. Asked whether she is planning any changes at the middle school, Davis said, “I have already discovered that the middle school has a great staff and amazing students.” “The only changes we will all be working through are the new requirements that are coming from the Ohio Department of Education to make sure we continue the top-notch education our students are receiving here,” Davis said.

The Williamsburg Garden Club will meet at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 3, at the First Presbyterian Church. Hostesses for the evening are Valerie Music and Angie McMahan.

New Richmond students ace AP exams When New Richmond Exempted Village School District Superintendent Adam Bird approached Mark Bailey about becoming principal at the high school, one of the first subjects on the agenda was improving the school’s advanced placement course test scores. Bird got the results he wanted this year as 65 New Richmond High School students scored three or higher on the 2013 Advanced Placement tests to become eligible for college credit that could save them anywhere from $80,000 to $115,000 in tuition based on semester hour charges at local universities. Eleven students scored a five, 24 earned a four and 30 earned a three (which is the cutoff for many colleges for AP credit), an improvement of 23 percent over 2012. “Mark and his NRHS staff are to be commended for the way they made it a priority and made it happen,” Bird told the New Richmond board of education. “The tremendous jump in AP results is a testament to the hard work of the students, staff, and administration at NRHS.” “Our staff’s dedication and hard work has resulted in the highest percentage of passing scores on the AP test since

NRHS started keeping records of the results,” said Bailey. “The national average for scores of three or above is around 52 percent, and I sincerely hope that everyone feels a great sense of accomplishment from this past year ... improved OGT results and improvement in AP test results.” Overall, seven of 11 students taking the biology AP test passed with three or higher, 13 of 15 passed their Literature & Composition test, 19 of 25 students passed the Human Geography test (six with scores of five), 10 of 15 students passed the U.S. Government test and 11 students passed the Chemistry test (compared to only two in 2012). Bailey made professional development and updated classroom supplies - from textbooks to pigs for dissecting - for AP classes a priority. “They made improving AP results a building focus and backed that up with professional development and budgetary support,” said Bird. “We had new, up-to-date textbooks and we had two sections this year so class size was smaller,” said human geography teacher Bill Harris. “But the number one reason we did so

well (56 percent got fours and fives, 76 percent passed with an average score of 3.5) was that these kids worked their tails off. “Over the years I’ve given more and more work and this year’s group rarely complained. This was best group I’ve ever had for asking questions. They made sure they understood concepts rather than being content to rattle off definitions and theories.” Harris’ experience as an AP geography reader in 2012 also helped with the improved scores.

“Having graded AP exams the year before I had a much better plan for teaching how to break down the essays and maximize scores,” said Harris. AP biology teacher Joe Moorehead and AP Literature and Composition teacher Nicole Parker echoed Harris’ views about student effort paying off. “An AP class presents many challenges, but the biggest challenge at times is getting your students to believe in themselves,” said Moorehead. “Believing that they know the material and they are becoming ex-

Batavia student wins Invention Convention Wishing someone would invent a solution to your problem? Young inventors took all those wishes to heart when they created their inventions for the third annual Cincinnati Invention Convention. Area students brought their solutions (both individuals and team entries) to everyday problems for a chance to win scholarships and prizes, For the past 20 years, more than one million Ohio kids have participated in The Invention Convention creating useful, sometimes crazy and always interesting inventions. The Invention Convention inspires students to create and problem solve while developing

their inventions. It differs from science fairs becasue the focus of the curriculum is to recognize simple to complex problems that individuals face every day and follow them through the process of creating solutions to them. The grand prize award, a $2,500 college scholarship went to Joey Rodriguez, a sixth-grader from Batavia Middle School. He invented the “Pedal Buddy.” First-place winners of a $500 college scholarship were: • Grade three, Trey Stuntz from Clermont Northeastern. • Grade four, Matthew Meyer from Ohio Virtual Academy. • Grade five, Kylie Hoerth from Clermont Northeastern

I enjoyed teaching this group so much, and I am pleased to know that so many of them have earned college credit for the course by scoring well on the exam,” said Parker. “They are a talented group of people, and they really worked hard. It is wonderful to see them earn this reward for their efforts.” Two New Richmond students passed AP exams without taking the AP course. “Juliane Molitor got a four in AP German without taking an AP German course,” said Harris. “I know her mother is German, but how many English speaking students could get a four on the English Language and Composition exam.” Even more impressive to Harris was Courtney Roberts who got a five on the Psychology AP exam and a three in European history. “Not only did she not take AP courses in those subjects, she didn’t even take Psychology or Western Civilization, the two related college-prep courses,” said Harris.

• Grade six, Gabe Iker from Batavia Middle School. • Grades seven and eight, Bende McCartney and Jasmine Wendel, a seventh-grade team from Batavia Middle School. Other special category awards • Kids Choice Award: Hatoon Badawi, a sixth-grade student at Batavia Middle School. She received a $25 Donatos card and $25 Technology Card.

Xavier University recently conducted its All Honors Day and the following students were honored: Matthew Walker of Batavia received an Athletic Director and Deans’ Athletic Award, given to student-athletes who have maintained a cumulative GPA of at least 3.5. William Walker of Batavia received an Athletic Director and Deans’ Athletic Award. Kenneth Burton of New Richmond received the Outstanding Contribution to Graduate Students award. This is presented annually to a graduate student who has provided outstanding leadership to graduate students through service, initiative and dedication. Elizabeth Moore of New Richmond received the McCoy Education Award. This is presented to senior education majors outstanding in academic achievement, character and teaching potential. Farwich honor with scholarship Xavier University has awarded scholarships to three women in chemistry, computer science or physics from the Clare Boothe Luce (CBL) program of the Henry Luce Foundation. Students will be designated as CBL Scholars for their junior and senior years. Anne Farwick of Union Township, a sophomore in physics, is one of the winners. “The funding offers us a tremendous opportunity to support the success of female students pursuing degrees and careers in chemistry, computer science and phys-

ics,” said Michael J. Graham, S.J., president of Xavier. “Xavier’s emphasis on undergraduate research, particularly in the STEM fields, provides a strong foundation for ongoing study in the sciences.” Xavier leads more women to graduate school and science careers by encouraging women to participate in Xavier’s culture of undergraduate research and by continuing its program for first-year female science majors to learn about research from upperclass women, as well as a program that brings alumni to discuss non-medical science career paths. Of the 12 Xavier women who received full Clare Boothe Luce scholarships under prior grants, nine have pursued graduate education in a STEM discipline, and two of these have completed PhDs and went on to post-doctoral positions, one at Harvard University and one at Vanderbilt University.

BETHEL — In a year’s time, the Bethel-Tate tennis team has gone from an undefeated run in the Southern Buckeye Conference-American Division to a team returning one experienced player. Player of the Year Clare Schaljo graduated along with several all-league teammates. Coach of the Year Kurt Charlton stepped down to devote more time to his church and his family. Without much experience or even a roster, Bethel-Tate nearly had to move their only experienced player, Chloe Henderson, to the boys tennis team to compete in the spring. That’s where Betsy Weeks came in. “Chloe (Henderson) and Emily Shouse, who has a torn ACL, really wanted to continue the program,” Weeks said. “If we didn’t have a full team of seven they would’ve made them play with the boys in spring. They didn’t want that, so we tried to get a list of girls interested in playing tennis.” Already a junior high track coach learning on the job, the Bethel-Tate alum and English teacher was convinced to take over a tennis team full of inexperienced players. The bulk of her tennis knowledge was that her husband played at Williamsburg. “My husband helps coach and also Chloe Henderson, our returning veteran, helps out,” Weeks said. “I took a college class on tennis and that’s about the extent of my knowledge. I had Chloe in class last year and she was really stressed about not having a coach. I said, ‘Well, I’ll try it.’” While their grammar, punctuation and sentence structure has likely strengthened, the Lady Tigers have lacked the court presence of their predecessors. Early on, Chloe Henderson and Suzie Havran have won matches, but most of the team has struggled.

“We’ve had a good time,” Weeks said. “When Suzie Havran, a first-year player, won a match against Goshen, it was really exciting. It was kind of unexpected.” The remainder of the team is junior Melissa Dameron at second singles and doubles players Drew Evans, Jordan Troxel, Alyssa Barnhouse and Tiffany Shouse. “Because of pay-to-play at Bethel, it’s tough to get players out here,” Weeks said. “It’s hard to pull athletes, because most of

them are either playing volleyball, soccer or cross country.” Without much prior knowledge of SBAAC tennis, Weeks doesn’t know all of the competition. However, she thinks they may have already seen them in a one-sided match. “I think our biggest competition is going to be Western Brown and we already played them,” Weeks said. “Chloe won some games but did not win a set.” The state of the Lady Tigers allows Weeks to use another skill

in her repertoire. As the school’s cheerleading coach in the winter, her racquet novices need all of the cheering they can get. The upside is Bethel-Tate fields a full team, when some schools forfeit matches due to lack of numbers. Young girls that might not have participated are being given the opportunity to wear the school colors and earn a letter. When you’re an English teacher, letters are important. “There you go, “ Weeks said. “I guess so.”

MSJ football ready to put 2012 season in rear view By Adam Turer presspreps@gmail.com

College of Mount St. Joseph senior punter/kicker Greg Tabar of Colerain will be among the leaders in the 2013 football team. THANKS TO THE COLLEGE OF MOUNT ST. JOSEPH

The College of Mount St. Joseph is eager to start the 2013 football season. When the Lions begin play on Sept. 7, the disappointing 2012 season will be completely behind them. Last season, the program finished with a losing record in conference play for the first time since 2008 and just the second time since 2001. Five teams finished ahead of Mount St. Joe in the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference standings. The Lions’ 4-6 overall record marked the program’s first losing season since the winless 2001 campaign. The season ended with a 75-6 drubbing at the hands of rival Thomas More College in the Bridge Bowl. “Coach Huber and the seniors don’t like talking about last year,” said senior punter Greg Tabar (Colerain). “We are excited to move forward. We’re playing with a chip on our shoulder this year.” This year’s squad is poised to bring Mount St. Joe back to its winning ways. It will be a challenge, as the Lions need to replace All-American running

back James Clay and a host of other starters. “A lot of spots are wide open,” said head coach Rod Huber as his team prepared for training camp. “We’ve got a lot of holes to fill.” Sophomore Cody Meade will try to replace Clay, who led the nation in rushing with 212.4 yards per game in 2012. Junior Jason Stinebaugh is the most experienced quarterback on the roster and will compete with freshmen and transfers for the starting nod. He completed 21 of 64 passes with four interceptions and zero touchdowns as a backup in 2012. Whoever wins the starting quarterback job will have some big targets in the passing game. 6’8” junior John Peters and 6’5” senior Tyler Feine (Amelia) should win most jump balls thrown their way. “We should be able to get those guys the ball in the red zone,” said Huber. The offensive line is led by senior Brandon Chapman and junior Brandon Keller. Senior safety Tyler Elrod leads the secondary, where he will be joined by new starters at both cornerback spots. Defensive end/linebacker Adam Bigelow

(Anderson) missed all of last season with a knee injury, but returns as a fifth-year senior. Nosetackle Russell Turner anchors the defensive line. The linebackers are the most experienced and deepest group on defense, with Konnor Blevins and Garrett Breiner returning. Several freshmen will be expected to contribute right away. They will bring athleticism and a positive attitude to a team that is eager to start fresh in 2013. “This is the most skillful freshman class we’ve had in my years here,” said Tabar. “As seniors, we are mentoring them in the little things, like how to get better in the film room.” Tabar’s leadership on and off the field earned him national recognition in 2012, when he was named to the Allstate AFCA Good Works Team and the Capital One Academic All-District Team. This will be the fourth straight season he has started at punter for the Lions. “He’s the best player on our football team,” said Huber. The Lions open the season on September 7 at Augustana College. Following a bye week, the Lions host conference foe Hanover College on September 21.

Cincinnatians were at March on Washington Ted Berry led a contingent of about 500 to the nation’s capital. “The march will give witness that the Negro is united in David America,” Wolfford COMMUNITY PRESS Berry told the Enquirer in GUEST COLUMNIST 1963. The Rev. Fred Shuttlesworth had moved here, but continued the intense fight in his native Birmingham. A mix of African-American citizens, white clergy and others boarded a specially arranged train at Union Terminal. They packed two box lunches and prepared for possible violence. They sang freedom songs along the way, and picked up additional demonstrators near Portsmouth and Ashland, Kentucky. “The train ride gave us such a warm, friendly feeling,” recalls Patricia Hogue (widow

of University of Cincinnati Bearcat basketball player Paul Hogue) and a senior at Central State University at the time. Donations to the local NAACP enabled her to attend. “It was the most wonderful experience.” It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream. Would this crew face danger? Would the march have any real impact? Could the civil rights bill become law? The Cincinnati Post and Times Star editorialized, “We favor the public accommodations section of the civil rights bill but think reform will come almost as fast without a law as with it.” Both of Ohio’s senators, Frank Lausche and Stephen Young, declined an invitation to attend. The uncertainty is what made it a dream. “We were the first train to arrive at Union Station,” recalls Hogue, “and we were some of the first to make it to the Washington Monument.” They got a close view of Peter,

Paul, and Mary, Harry Belafonte, and Joan Baez. Later in the day, at the other end of the reflecting pool, spoke A. Phillip Randolph, Shuttlesworth, and of course the headliner, Dr. King. Press reports and recollections by local participants paint the day as “glorious,” “wonderful,” “peaceful,” and “promising.” The march ended as an apparent success. In total, 200,000 attended. Most Cincinnati marchers returned home that evening. An intense debate on the bill, the assassination of its chief sponsor, and increased press coverage followed. A year later, Kennedy’s successor signed the bill with King and other leaders standing behind him to help fulfill the dream. “Free at last! Free at last! Thank God almighty, we are free at last.” David Wolfford teaches Government and Politics at Mariemont High School.

Returning to Clermont Senior Services I have always believed that circumstances come full circle. And, now I’ve come full circle to introduce myself as the “returning” writer of the Caring and Sharing Column. Returning because I wrote the column for 14 years after its original writer, Bob Proud, became a Clermont County Commissioner in 1984. Some may not be aware that Bob worked for Clermont Senior Services and still remains an advocate and friend of Clermont Senior Services and, certainly, the older adults in our community. And, now, the most recent familiar face you’ve seen under the Caring & Sharing Column since she assumed that role from me in 1998, Linda Eppler, has done what so many of us work toward, and that is she has retired to spend quality time with her husband and family. I’m pleased to serve, again, as the voice for the Caring and Sharing column and to return to the Community Press family of contributors. I first came to Clermont Senior Services when I was 25 in 1983, where I worked for 15 years before leaving for 11 years, but still actively involved with my role on the Board of Directors for eight of those 11 years, and then returned as staff in 2008. Stop! Don’t do any calculations! But, I will say that I am a TrailingEdge or Late Bloomer Baby Boomer. And, my personal circumstances of balancing

family, work and community, reflect a typical profile for my female counter-part Late Bloomer Boomers. Cindy A baby Gramke boomer is a COMMUNITY PRESS person who GUEST COLUMNIST was born during the Post World War II baby boom between the years 1946 and 1964, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. The Leading-Edge Baby Boomers are individuals born between 1946 and 1955, those who came of age during the Vietnam War era. According to Wikipedia (the use of which is another tell-tale sign of a Late Bloomer Boomer), this group represents slightly more than half of the generation, or roughly 38,002,000 people of all races. The first baby boomer turned 60 on January 1, 2006. Who knew that the radical and free love generation of the Woodstock era would now be potentially eligible for services for seniors? The other half of the generation was born between 1956 and 1964. Called Late Bloomer Boomers, or Trailing-Edge Boomers, this second cohort, of which I am one, includes about 37,818,000 individuals, according to Live Births by Age and Mother and Race, 1933-98, published by the Center for Disease Control’s National Center for Health Statis-

tics And the closer I get to crossing the 60 line, I’ve noticed that I not only recognize, but I relate to certain terms of aging, and these terms not only have relevance, but they evoke emotion. All of a sudden, we boomers begin hearing and relating to aging in place, the sandwich generation, caregiving for a parent, getting your house in order, target date fund, healthy aging, home access design, Medicare, Social Security (or, the ultimate worry about the lack thereof), and the always present acronyms that we are finally, by necessity, figuring out, such as DNR, No CPR, DNAR, AND orders, as well as, DMEs, ADLs and IADLs. The list grows as each one of us considers the future for ourselves and/or for aging loved

ones for whom we make decisions and provide for care. Whether we are planning for our personal future or for those we love, aging is certain, and the alternative is bleak. Arming ourselves with information and beginning to plan is a strength that all of us, as boomers, do very well. Whether you’re a boomer or beyond, I welcome your readership and look forward to sharing information that will help you navigate your way through the many issues that affect seniors in Clermont County.

“I am happy to join with you today in what will go down as the greatest demonstration for freedom in the history of our nation.” That’s how Martin Luther King opened his “I Have a Dream” speech on Aug. 28, 1963. National civil rights leaders had called for 100,000 to march on Washington for freedom and jobs soon after President Kennedy sent his civil rights bill to Capitol Hill. Cincinnati activists helped King’s prediction come true. Abysmal race relations defined the South and much of the North. Cincinnati, just north of state-mandated segregation, had made some notable gains. African-American leaders had pressured downtown restaurants and Coney Island to integrate, and were now focused on ending discriminatory housing.

Should the U.S. continue to provide financial and military aid to Egypt following the military’s overthrow of its democratically elected government and it’s deadly attack on protesters?

“I’m glad you asked that question since President Obama has absolutely no idea what to do in all of the Middle East, let alone Egypt. “As Egypt burns and thousands die in the streets, our president enjoyed another round of golf on Martha’s Vineyard. Now that he is back to work in the Oval Office we’d expect him to roll up his sleeves and get to work on these urgent problems. “But no, he’s planning a bus tour to visit his rah-rah supporters who will dutifully swoon at his every word of sarcasm towards Congress while totally ignoring the Middle East and all the other REAL problems he promised to solve in his first term. “For me to suggest what ‘the U.S.’ should do is pointless since there is a wide gulf between America’s goals and whatever goals Barack Obama, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and now Secretary of State John Kerry have in mind for Egypt, etc. “Obama supported the overthrow of former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak and the installation of President Morsi who replaced Mubarak through what were believed to be free elections. “That Morsi, a dedicated member of the well-known terror group, The Muslim Brotherhood, immediately set about reneging on his election promises and proceeded to suspend freedoms and constitutional law in order to create a Sharia Law caliphate cannot be ignored. “Perhaps Obama is sympathetic towards Morsi having deep personal feelings of his own regarding broken campaign promises.” R.V.

Cobbler, dips make great Labor Day recipes Cleaning out the freezer is never an easy task. I don’t know how I accumulate so much food in there! I ran across a container of sour pie cherries the other day from last year and knew I had to do something with them, and fast. So I made this cherry cobbler.

If you have a similar recipe, please share. Manyet’s Bakery cheesecake: Another request from this popular bakery, which was in Newport and now closed. For Pat B. “They had a cheesecake like no other I have ever had that was really great. If in any way you can find that recipe, I would surely appreciate it!”

Enough to cover the cherries by an inch or so. Some readers use vodka, rum or grain alcohol. The container should be glass,

since it’s not air-permeable, with a tight lid. Canning jars work well. A reader wants to use a sugar substitute. I suggested Splenda, but have not tried it.

said. I contacted the bank and, following an investigation, the bank returned the more than $500 to Weismann plus money to reimburse her for the overdraft charges she incurred. A spokesman for the bank agrees this appears to be theft. The bank has turned over its findings to the Cincinnati Police Department. So protect yourself whenever you get a check by immediately writing on the back, “For Deposit Only.” There’s no need to sign it, just put it in your bank as soon as possible.

But Weismann had already filed a police report alleging the person who cashed the check is a thief. Despite all this, Weismann still didn’t have her money back, which caused major problems. “I haven’t been able to pay certain of my bills so I have late fees coming – and my personal account basically is horrible. I can’t use it right now because of this,” she said. Based on the information she’s uncovered, Weismann said she believes police should able to find the thief and take action. “They forged a check and stole a check. They cashed a check. Altogether that’s three things against this person. They need to pay for what’s happened,” Weismann

Good news from doctors; a visit to car show

Howdy Folks, I went to the doctor’s last Tuesday; he said for me to come back in three months. I got a good report, I am thankful. The scan Ruth Ann had a couple weeks ago was good. She goes every three months for a check up on the cancer she had two years ago on her leg. God is Good!! We have been getting more corn from the Grants Farm; it is so good. We like the bi-color better than the white corn. Don’t get me wrong the white corn is good. Last week we took honey off and it was so good. It looks like there are 50,000 bees in the hive. We got seven pints of honey; that will take care of us. Our granddaughter gets one pint of honey. She likes our honey real well. Both of our

granddaughters got to see young bees coming out of the comb several years ago. George The Rooks other OLE FISHERMAN morning for breakfast we had fried eggs and bacon. Of course Chessy got her slice of bacon, boy she like that. She likes to lay either in the driveway or on top of the truck. Sometimes she will lay in the bed of the truck. When our friend Tony comes over she will go to him for treats. She knows the sound of his truck She is waiting for him to get out. She knows he has some treats for her. It is amazing how animals know.

Club kicks off campaign Boys and Girls Clubs of Clermont County recently kicked off its annual fundraiser, It Just Takes One Campaign. The campaign is conducted to raise funds for the clubs’ after-school programs and services for youth 6-18 and seeks donations from individuals and local businesses. With the goal of raising $100,000 by the end of the year, campaign chairwoman Stephanie Wyler said, “We are proud to announce that 100 percent of our board and staff have already

Sunday evening we were sitting on the porch and Ruth Ann said for me to look at Chessy. She was looking at a rabbit setting by the boat. Finally the rabbit hopped away and Chessy turned around and came to the porch. Saturday we went over to the Wildey School for a car show and craft show. There were 75 cars there and 25 crafters. It was a good event. There were two vehicles there that were older than me. They were built in 1931. One was a roadster, the other a huckster truck. Both of them ran so smooth and the body of each was excellent. The huckster vehicle was finished inside with white oak lumber, the same as when it was built in 1931. This was the second year for the car and craft

show. It was good. The school personnel do a wonderful job for the show and the school students. Ruth Ann and I will attend the show next year when they have one. Lisa sure does a good job and her committee getting it ready. Congratulations to all. We went to the new Kroger store last Sunday afternoon. There was a big crowd but it didn’t seem crowded, only the parking lot. We got to see some of the folks that worked at the store in Hamlet that we were acquainted with. The parking area is big so make note what row you park in. We found the store to be fine. We had no trouble finding everything we needed, all the staff were so helpful. It is so good to have the Kroger store in

made an impact towards this goal by making a contribution. The club’s leadership and staff know what kind of impact we make and know it is an investment in our community. “ As a welcome surprise, the Club received a lead contribution by the Oliver Family Foundation, a new supporter and another $5,000 matching challenge from a longtime investor whose desire is to encourage new supporters to make a difference in the lives of kids in this community.
