Committee OKs police training By Keith BieryGolick

A Dodge Charger police car, similar to this one, recently was driven into a ditch by a Bethel police officer. Village officials must determine what to do with the vehicle, which was scheduled to be replaced in January.FILE ART


By Keith BieryGolick

BETHEL — A police car officials wanted to replace in January will need more immediate action. An officer drove his 2007 Dodge Charger into a ditch outside of the village about three weeks ago, said Police Chief Mark Planck. “He didn’t get the car into the driveway properly,” Planck said. The chief inspected the vehicle, but didn’t report the damage in the official log. Since the department planned to sell the car in January he didn’t think the damage was substantial enough to re-

port, he said. “I looked at it and the bumper cover wasn’t the best,” Planck said. “The damage was more extensive than we Dotson thought.” Officials recently replaced the tires on the vehicle, but it is no longer drivable. It had to be towed to the Jeff Wyler dealership for further repair. The accident pushed the car’s radiator back into the engine, Planck said. The insurance on the car should cover “a couple grand or more,” he said. Other damage to the cam bearing would

not be covered by insurance. Planck estimated that damage would not cost more than $2,000 to fix. Village AdPlanck ministrator Travis Dotson asked how not reporting the damage would affect the insurance. “I’m not sure that it would,” Planck said. Planck said he will look back at the call log with the officer in question and report the car’s damage. “I’m sure he’ll remember what call that was,” he said. Planck asked the village’s

Safety Committee what they wanted to do with the vehicle, but said “it’d be rough” if it wasn’t repaired soon because officers would have to use the department’s other three vehicles more. Doug Flamm, a criminal justice instructor at the Grant Career Center in Bethel, recently expressed interest in the car – but didn’t know the full extent of the damage, Planck said. “This is probably something we’d have to run by the Finance Committee,” Dotson said. “I’d like to see what the insurance company says.” The next finance committee meeting is scheduled for 5 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 10, at the municipal building, 120 N. Main St.

County rejects bids, vacates property By Jason Hoffman

BATAVIA — Companies bidding to repair the county’s water and wastewater treatment facilities and perform electrical maintenance were rejected by Clermont County Commissioners Wednesday, Aug. 28, for being too expensive.

Hilvert & Pope Electric Inc, of Cincinnati, and Glenwood Electric Inc. both bid more than 10 percent higher than County Engineer Patrick Manger’s $78,000 estimate. “We’ll be back to hopefully to request to rebid that and we’re going to revise the specifications and hopefully keep it within its originial budget,”

said Lyle Bloom, director of utilities in the Clermont County Water Resources Department. Hilvert & Pope bid more than $147,000 for the project and Glenwood more than $117,000. Although there are ways to accept bids exceeding estimates by more than 10 percent, Bloom said he had never seen a

bid outside the threshold accepted. “It’s in the code that if it’s above the engineer’s estimate then we have to make special procedure – either reject it or do other things,” said Ed Humphrey, Clermont County Commissioner.

BETHEL — New training procedures for Bethel Police could cost taxpayers as much as $2,780 a year. The idea is to mandate oncea-month, two-hour training sessions for the police department. “This would be money well spent if it’s a properly run meeting,” said Alan Ausman, village mayor. “I would like to see these meetings started.” Ausman said the sessions could benefit Bethel’s many young officers. “The possibilities are endless,” said Police Chief Mark Planck. The department’s staff includes three full-time officers, three part-time officers and other axillary officers. The cost of such a training session would include hourly wages for full and part-time employees, overtime and taxpayer’s contribution to the officers’ early retirement benefits. “It’s pretty darn reasonable for what you could accomplish,” said Fiscal Officer Bill Gilpin. If overtime wasn’t granted, and officers were given compensation time instead, the department could use auxiliary officers to cover that and reduce the cost to about $1,400 a year, Gilpin said. “It’s a good thing for all involved,” said Jeremiah Hembree, council member. Ausman favored the meetings, but expressed concern over how they have been conducted in the past. “The one time we did have a meeting it was very chaotic,” he said, telling the Safety Committee that police officers left intermittently to answer phones and some had to leave the meeting entirely. Planck said the duties of a police officer make that atmosphere unavoidable. Village Administrator Travis Dotson suggested using auxiliary officer John Wallace – who used to be the police chief – to answer phones during the meetings. “He’s next to God,” Dotson said. “He doesn’t need more training.” Incidents that have taken place in the village could be used as teachable moments, Ausman said. He also mentioned using YouTube videos to create scenarios and ask officers, “What would you do?” Entering the ninth month of the year, Gilpin said the village could afford these training meetings because the department is 3 percent under the payroll cap for the year. “But it is something to keep in mind for next year,” he said.

Cemetery gets 3,000-pound addition

No timetable is set for the county to ask for another round of bids for the project. Commissioners also vacated a small tract of land in Union Township. A 64.94-foot parcel at the end of White Street just off Mt. Carmel Tobasco Road near an I-275 exit ramp in the township that separated two portions of Dreamscapes Nurseries. Dean Goering, owner of the nursery, said the land will help his business by making it easier for customers to turn around and give him more space to display trees. “I will be able to make one gate across the road Phone 937.444.2493 Dr. C.

Goering opened his nursery in 1999 and it has grown from a 40-tree display to having more than 300. “If there is no public purpose for property and someone petitions us to vacate it we will,” Humphrey said. “Vacating the property also reduces maintenance required by Union Township and there is no cost to the county.” Goering also plans to go the Union Township officials in hopes of being able to expand his parking lot.

AMELIA — Village Mayor Todd Hart served in the U.S. Army for eight years during the Vietnam War and Gulf War. “That’s why this means so much to me,” Hart said. “It’s kind of a pet project that I can’t get away from.” He’s talking about a veterans memorial in Odd Fellows Cemetery. “We don’t have a veterans memorial in the village,” Hart said. “(But) we do have service members all the way back to the Revolutionary War in that cemetery, and every war up to the Vietnam War.” Not only would the memorial honor servicemen and women, but residents of the village stand to get something out of it as well. The Home Depot store on Ohio Pike has gotten behind the project, and before work on the memorial could start, the cemetery needed a general cleanup. “(The cemetery) hadn’t been touched in

about 100 years,” Hart said. So Home Depot sent more than 100 volunteers out in April to help with tombstone straightening and weeding. “We’re still working with Home Depot. Hopefully, by the end of September we should have .... information so we can start putting up the front wall in the cemetery,” Hart said. Officials plan to start campaigning for funds next year, he said. In front of the memorial, which will be centered in the cemetery,

Hart and other officials want to put a 3,000-pound Howitzer gun they received from the Anniston Army Depot in Alabama. Hart said the village has been trying to get the gun for five years. “You couldn’t get better timing,” he said. The 21-foot-long gun still belongs to the government, and is just on temporary lease to the village – at no cost to taxpayers. “If they ever need it back we have to give it back to them,” Hart said.

‘Go Lions’ has new meaning in Cameroon When someone yells “Go Lions” in the village of Tugi, Cameroon, Africa, it can cause panic. But this soccer season in Tugi, those words may be coming from the mouth of The Fon, His Royal Highness W.M. Mbakwa, ruler of the village of 3500. When the Tugi’s Government Technical Secondary School soccer team takes the field they will be wearing uniforms of the New Richmond Lions thanks to New Richmond High School and its French teacher Roger Nyam, a native of Tugi. “We wish the donors could really come visit our village so that we can show them our love and appreciation and share a meal and some kola nut with them,” His Royal Highness W.M. Mbakwa said. “The villagers are so proud of their children and the school. They love to fondly refer to the students as

young Americans because of their American jerseys.” “Once again, on behalf of the kids of Tugi, I thank New Richmond Schools for the donation,” said Nyam, who makes pilgrimages back to his hometown with (or ships) donated items from New Richmond. “It made a world of difference in the lives of those kids in my hometown. “ Nyam noted that the Fons of other villages envy Tugi. “They know very well that the state did not provide those jerseys to the school and that they came all the way from the United States,” said Nyam, who will have more soccer jerseys for his 2014 trip to his hometown. “We just bought new varsity jerseys this year and I will have two bags of jerseys for Roger next year (pending school board approval for disposal),” said New Richmond High School

athletic director Doug Foote. “We want to thank Mr. Roger Nyam for not forgetting where

he comes from and for knowing what the kids really need back here and ask him to extend our

love and appreciation to New Richmond High School and the people of New Richmond,” said Mr. Manasse Mbakwa, president of the Tugi Cultural and Development Association, speaking on behalf of the village and schools. “May God bless them. We love you” Mr. Olivier Mbazogo, the sports teacher at the Tugi secondary school, said he felt excited coaching a team that has sports attire that everyone admires “Those jerseys made the students excited about participating in sports,” said Mbazogo. Cameroon is bordered by Nigeria, Chad, Central African Republic, Congo and Gabon on the west coast of Africa. Tugians are mainly farmers and grassers involve in the production of cereals, roots, tubers, vegetables, cattle, goats, sheep, horses and cola nuts.

The UC Clermont College Police Academy celebrated the graduation of 27 students who have spent the last five months in the Ohio Peace Officer Basic Training Course offered through the Clermont College Criminal Justice Technology Program. The ceremony took place in the Krueger Auditorium on the Batavia campus in August. Clermont County Sheriff A.J. “Tim” Rodenberg gave the keynote address to the graduates. Sheriff Rodenberg is an instructor in both the Criminal Justice Program and the Police Academy, and also serves as a charter member of the Clermont College Criminal Justice Advisory Board, which guides and makes recommendations on curricular issues at the col-

lege. “We are very proud of the fact that we are one of only two colleges in Ohio who have folded the Basic Police Academy into our academic curriculum. Our graduates finish their time here with both their associate degree in criminal justice and their Ohio Peace Officer Training Certificate. This makes them marketable in a tough market and valuable to our consumers – the local law enforcement community,” said Associate Professor Ed Bridgeman, head of the Criminal Justice Technology Program. For more information about the Police Academy, please contact David Gregory, Program Director, Office of Safety Services and Police Academy at 558-7408.

Ten students lose their locks for charity Eight Cincinnati Country Day students, along with two adults, lost their locks for a good cause during the Pantene Beautiful Lengths hair-cutting event at the school. Their hair was donated to make wigs for cancer patients who lose their hair as a result of chemotherapy. This year’s donors were sixth-graders Mary Harten of Milford, Caitlin Ferguson of Loveland, Nellie Shih of Mason and Nevie Smith of Milford; fifth-grader Stephanie Gentile of Indian Hill; third-grader Priya Thompson and her mother, Naveena Thompson of Forest Park; second- graders Alison Kohler of Maineville and Audrey Potter of Sycamore Township; and Stephanie Wietmarschen of Mason, vocal and instrumental music teacher for the Upper and Middle schools. Phyllis Rinaldi from Phyllis at the Madison in Hyde Park, and her stylist, Julie Mittermeier, tied hair into ponytails and then cut them off. The event was organized by sixth-grader Molly Briggs of Mount Lookout. “My uncle died of cancer and I was really sad, so I just wanted to make a difference and help people who do have cancer, because I remember he didn’t have any hair,” Molly said.

Nevie Smith, who had her hair cut, said, “It felt good. I feel so free now.” She plans to grow her hair out so she can donate it again in a couple of years. “I think it’s for a great cause, and I think it’s so nice of Molly to start doing this for people that don’t have hair.” Since the program began in 2006, Pantene has received more than 480,000 hair donations and has given more than 38,000 wigs to the American Cancer Society’s wig banks, which distribute wigs to cancer patients across the country. About 6,000 ponytails are donated each month. It takes half a million ponytails to

make 36,000 wigs. On average, between 8 and 14 ponytails are needed per wig. Cheri McMaster, communications manager for Pantene, runs the Beautiful Lengths charity with a team. “We realized there’s a whole bunch of women that have chemotherapy and lose their hair. We found out that when you lose your hair, you lose a lot of your confidence,” said McMaster, a Country Day parent from Milford. “We also found out that wigs are very, very expensive. They can cost two or three thousand dollars, and a lot of people don’t have any medical care that will pay for that.”

Bethel-Tate boys soccer battles mileage By Scott Springer

BETHEL — When most soccer players lace up their cleats for a game, they immediately form a circle and stretch. At Bethel-Tate High School, part of coach Dave Schellenberger’s group has already logged a couple miles before many games. Without the deep numbers of other schools, it’s not unusual for a Bethel-Tate athlete to play soccer AND run cross country. Because of that, the Tigers sometimes have lapses. In a recent loss to Norwood, they led 2-0 in the first 20 minutes. From there, the Indians registered five straight goals as Norwood’s “freshness” prevailed in the long run. “We are the underdogs,” Schellenberger said. “We don’t go very deep. When one or two guys go out, we suffer a little bit.” Schellenberger still sees Amelia and New Richmond as the favorites in the league, much like last year. Making the Norwood loss more disappointing was the fact that BethelTate had just tied Amelia 1-1 in the second game of the season. “You’ve got to be ready to

travel and take it to the next level,” Schellenberger lamented after the Aug. 27 defeat. Minus traffic, a drive from Bethel to Norwood is roughly 37 miles or 45 minutes. Factoring in stop lights, signs, constructions and rush hour traffic, the trip can easily last an hour or more. Plus, when momentum shifts, like it did against Norwood, there are not many options to stop it. “It’s a little tougher in soccer because you don’t have the timeouts,” Schellenberger said. “You have to make the adjustment on the field. It sometimes works and sometimes doesn’t.” Bethel-Tate’s scoring leader has been junior Jason Altmayer, while sophomore Evan Iding has found the net a few times on breakaways. “Evan’s had a lot of quality goals,” Schellenberger said. “He was a freshman on varsity last year and was a starter.” In addition to Evan Iding, his senior brother, Jared Iding, is a midfielder for the Tigers. “They both still run cross country,” Schellenberger said. “We have leg issues. Never a dull moment.” Juniors Adam Shinkle and

Zane Copestick also pull double-duty and often are changing footwear between disciplines. Norwood finished just ahead of Bethel-Tate in the Southern Buckeye Conference-American Division in 2012. Only one game separated the two teams and Schellenberger’s looking forward to Oct.1for a rematch with the Indians. “We were on all cylinders and went back two steps,” Schellenberger said. “We have to rebound.” With Norwood having to make the trek east this time and play on Bethel-Tate’s natural grass, the long-time coach thinks the result can be different. “We still have a great group of kids,” Schellenberger said. “It (a loss) shows what you have to do the next game. We’ve had some away games and I think some of it is cross country. A little of it is we’re still young and we don’t know where we’re going to play everybody yet.” The Tigers have another tough road battle at New Richmond Sept. 5, before returning home with Glen Este Sept. 9 and Purcell Marian Sept. 12.

Flash grabs another tournament at Rumpke Park The Hamersville Flash 13U Gold won another tournament at Rumpke Park on Mother’s Day weekend. In game one, John Stringfellow pitched a great game against Vintage baseball . The big hit came off the bat of Stephen Krause on a basesclearing double to the wall. Dylan Whisman came in relief then Aric France closed the door with his great pitching and knuckle ball. In game two the Flash played the Ohio Force in a pitchers’ duel. Krause was dominating with his great fast ball and unhittable curve ball. The big hit in this game came off the bat of France on a double to knock in two runs. Evan Baugh got the ball in game three. Evan pitched outstanding taking the game into the last inning with a 2-0 lead. In the last inning the Cincinnati Tribe had bases loaded with 1 out when the move to the bull pen came. Dylan Whisman came into the pressurepacked situation. Whisman’s

Homeschooled, Noah is the son of Rick and Barb Anderson and grandson of long-time Bethel residents Blair and Margene Pride. Anderson’s high school soccer coach, Jeff Chitwood, called him a terrific player. “He has unusually good timing when playing volleys out of the air, as well as a keen sense of patience and pressure as a one v. one defender. He understood the different tactical ‘looks’ that I wanted to show opposing teams and instinctively played great angles,” said Chitwood. As a senior, Chitwood asked Anderson to take on a new challenge as “quarterback” of the team and as one of the center

midfielders. “He scored goals and routinely transitioned our points of attack. While being raw in this role, his instinctive sense of timing and angles infused life into our offense. His senior year he was voted to the N.C.S.A.A. Super-Regional Team,” said the coach. Nevertheless, by far Noah’s greatest contribution to our team was his character, according to Chitwood. He was voted by his teammates as a captain. And as a senior, he received the “Eagle” award because of his Christ-like servant leadership style. “I have told Noah that while people may forget things he has done on the field, they will not forget how he has loved them individually,” said Chitwood. “One of my favorite quotes to share with the team is ‘The measure of a man’s strength is not the width of his shoulders but the depth of his nobility.’ Noah will bless his future team/ school/work place and most importantly- family with his nobility. I know that his Savior, the Lord Jesus, takes pleasure in how Noah lives life,” said Chitwood.

Off-duty officer earned a star angels singing! Emerging from his car was a clean cut young man on his way home from work. Even after Mary being told Koebbe COMMUNITY PRESS AAA was on the way he GUEST COLUMNIST insisted on staying with us and began trying to locate our spare tire. Dismantling the entire rear of our 2012 Cadillac SRX, imagine our surprise when there was no spare tire to be found. When the AAA truck driver arrived he confirmed Cadillac doesn’t always automatically include a spare tire ....and “we’re gonna’ need a tow truck!” Both my husband and our new best friend, Brandon Musgrove, were

incredulous .....and… I was running out of oxygen! My heart racing I managed to get my husband’s attention to signal I was in trouble. Before Dick could ask Brandon to drive me home, Brandon was helping me out of our car and putting me into his. Words weren’t necessary. By taking control he was saying, “It’s going to be okay....I’ve got you.” After getting inside my home I was wheezing and gasping pretty hard before getting hooked to my oxygen concentrator. Brandon seemed worried and didn’t want to leave me alone, although he could tell I was more panicked about my elderly husband (I didn’t know that until I heard the AAA driver refer to us as “an elderly couple”) being stranded. When my new hero felt I would be alright he said, “I’m

going back down to find your husband and bring him home.” I swear the music was playing again! Brandon Musgrove and his wife live here in Anderson Township. He has been a police officer with Arlington Heights Police Department for three years. We sent a letter to his superiors expressing our appreciation. He absolutely would not take money which we offered twice, he kindly but firmly said, “I appreciate the offer but no thank you.” He did not have to stop at all, certainly didn’t have to stay when he heard other help was coming ... but stay he did and I believe that act of kindness earned him an extra star in that halo I still see over his head. Thank you Brandon. Mary Koebbe is an Anderson Township resident.

CH@TROOM Last week’s question Should fans at sporting events have to conform to a “code of conduct”? What types of behavior should be regulated?

“Yes, sports fans’ behavior should be regulated at events. With families around and small kids present, profanity and drunken or sober obnoxiousness should not be tolerated. Those aren’t really the problem; the ‘jerk line’ takes care of that because ushers and officers will come and eject serious troublemakers. “The problem is when opposing fans come to an away game and scream, drink, and bullyrag home-team fans. Adding alcohol can make things get ugly quickly. Maybe we can pass a new city ordinance to make them stay in Pittsburgh!” TRog

“Whatever rules the venue establishes should be published, posted, and even printed on the tickets. This way fans know what’s expected. Then it’s up to the fans to decide if they want to attend or not. If attendance suffers, I’m sure the rules would be adjusted.” P.C.

“If the players on the fields abide to the code of conduct, so should the fans, on all levels. Fans, especially sideline parents, forget this is the sports players game, not theirs.” O.R.

“Do we really need a code of conduct to act with consideration, dignity and respect around our fellow human beings and their children? Stay reasonably sober, refrain from foul language, don’t spill food or drink on other people or into

NEXT QUESTION Do you think the U.S. is safer now that it was 12 years ago, before the Sept. 11 attacks? What do you most remember about that day? Every week we ask readers a question they can reply to via e-mail. Send your answers to with Chatroom in the subject line.

their space. In other words, be considerate of others around you who paid for seats and are also entitled to watch the game just like you are.” F.S.D.

“Yes, fans should conform to a code of conduct be it a youth, high school, college or pro game. Ideally it should be selfimposed where people conduct themselves in a respectful manner to those around them, players on the field and coaches and officials. Don’t make a scene, don’t embarrass or belittle anyone. Treat others as you would prefer to be treated. “That being said, I don’t realistically thing a code of conduct works for all people. There are always a few that are an embarrassment to the human race. If at all possible they should be asked to leave if selfcontrol is beyond their command. “Hate to say it but some people feel the need (maybe its empowerment for those who feel taken advantage in life) to make a jerk out of themselves. Give them their money back ... suggest that they stay away.” T.B.

“Fans at any type of event are sharing the stadium or arena with thousands of other people. These people often range

from children to grandparents. It is every person’s responsibility to behave in a way that does not disrupt or offend. Everyone should be able to enjoy the game and express their enthusiasm without spoiling it for those around them. Do unto others ...” R.V.

“Some behavior is not acceptable. Most is during a ‘sporting’ event. After all the players all have shown non-acceptable behavior! “Do not interfere with others space. No physical contact. But yelling for or against a team is OK. Control your language to what you would say to your grandmother! (I know there are some grandmothers it would not bother).” W.B.B.

“The fans at sporting events should be grown up enough to be able regulate their own behavior and not infringe upon others. “That means NO swearing, spitting (tobacco juice included), hitting, blocking the view, spilling of beverages on others, lewd T-shirts, drunken conduct, throwing up or belching. But isn’t that what your mother taught you anyway? “Use the manners that your mother would approve of and all would be fine. Unless your mother swore, hit, spit, got drunk ... oh well.” J.B.

“Have you ever been to an athletic event with a young child and had some idiot swearing and shouting at every young girl that moves. I haven’t, my kids are grown, but I have seen other families in this situation. “I’m glad that the Browns have installed their behavior

clause and have seen people escorted from the stadium, glad. When your paying big bucks, you don’t need foul mouth idiots spilling beer or making advances on anything that moves. “I’m not saying they can’t have a good time and be energetic about the game, but be considerate of others around them. If they can’t, they deserve to sit in the penalty box in security or Hamilton Co. jail. “Respect the Stripes, Big red C., and our city and make everyone feel much better.” D.J.

“Merely common courtesy and commen sense, both of which are in precious short supply these days ... especially for “sports” fanatics! J.G.

“Yes! Fans should have to conform to a code of conduct. Cincinnati fans should try making MORE noise when the Bengals and Reds need it. “This is the quietest sports town I know. Cincinnati needs some kind of noise making PEDs! Cliff Radel of the Enquirer blamed our “German Heritage.” Come on. Pittsburgh fans are louder than us when we play them. “The Reds playoffs were like Wimbledon last year until 2 outs in the ninth inning of the last game. Shhhhh! “We don’t need to scream and yell the whole time of course, but tame and lame seem to be the M.O. for most of this city. Be a part of the game, get your team pumped up, don’t wait for the home run. “As for ‘whiny birds’ at least Chuck D has Spirit and a sense of humor. The code of conduct is common sense, use it and we won’t need fan “rules.” T.J.F.

On a perfect summer’s night, Wednesday Aug. 21, 2013, my husband Richard Koebbe, age 79, and I were returning home from an enjoyable dinner with friends. Wheelchair dependent and on oxygen 24/7, I’m always strapped into the back seat. That arrangement also lowers my propensity for back seat driving. Just before 10:00 driving up Beechmont Hill, there was a loud explosion. My husband gained control of our car and calmly said, “Its OK Honey, we just blew a tire.” We called AAA while cars zipped past causing our car to shudder and my heart to flutter. Panic began nibbling at my nerves, when a car pulled alongside and a young man quickly put me at ease. “Folks, you need some help? I am an off duty police officer.” In my eyes, he had wings, a white suit, halo and I heard

Will city keep its word on Lunken? Cincinnati City Manager Milton Dohoney characterized the proposed Allegiant Airlines flights out of Lunken with the remark, “You drive up, go through security, get on a nofrills flight and go play with Mickey Mouse.” Fair enough, after all, being against a cheap flight to Disneyland is almost unpatriotic. But those flights to Orlando with 160-seat MD-83s would be the first of their kind in many years and would require an upgrade of the airport’s FAA certification from Class IV to Class I (like CVG or Midway). Lunken currently hosts large charter aircraft, but not any scheduled air carrier service. (Ultimate Air Shuttle, with their thirty-seat Dorniers, operates as a charter.) Moving to accommodate larger aircraft Robert L. on a “schedRoark COMMUNITY PRESS uled” basis is a one-way propGUEST COLUMNIST osition. The city may not later decide it doesn’t like the increased noise and traffic, then recertify and politely ask the offenders leave. Nor will the city be able to establish curfews by time of day or by type of aircraft. That would be considered an “undue burden on interstate commerce,” a precedent well established, and the deal made when federal funding was accepted. In 2004 after a long airport planning process, an ordinance, sponsored by then Councilman John Cranley, was passed by City Council to address concerns over future growth. Three items in that ordinance stand out: 1) The city will not petition the FAA for an upgrade from the Class IV status; 2) The city will not actively seek any scheduled passenger air service; and, 3) the city reaffirms the value of having the Lunken Airport Oversight Advisory Board make recommendations on any plans which may affect the nature of operations. At a minimum you would expect the proposal to receive some scrutiny. Evidently not: As reported in the Enquirer in July, the city has paid an engineering firm to specify modifications to the terminal required to accommodate Allegiant Air. As for the upgrade to Class I status, expect an argument that goes like this: Because the airport currently meets the standards required by the FAA for Class I, (exactly how this occurred is not clear, but will be framed as “safety” issues), the class certification will be upgraded automatically when the carrier commences operations, rendering that clause of the ordinance moot. The city needs to keep its word and host this debate. After all, that ticket to Disneyland may not be as cheap as it looks. Robert L. Roark is retired from the airline industry, including 12 years with the U.S. Air Force.

Rita’s sausage lasagna recipe features no-cook lasagna noodles.THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD

Easy lasagna, healthy homemade power bars When my kids were young our lives were busy, but nowhere near how busy their lives are now that they’re grown with families of their own. The requests I’ve gotten this week tell me a lot of Rita you are in Heikenfeld the same RITA’S KITCHEN situation. Readers want easy main dishes (pasta being the most popular) and healthy snacks. So here are two of my favorites.

Sausage lasagna using uncooked noodles For Darren, a Western Hills reader who saw a sausage lasagna recipe in a magazine at the doctor’s office. He said: “It called for uncooked noodles. I didn’t want to tear the recipe out, but it looked so good.” Here’s one from my files. There are special “no-cook” lasagna noodles you can buy. Leftovers can be frozen and microwaved to reheat. 1 pound favorite sausage 26-32 oz. favorite pasta sauce 3 ⁄4 cup water 2 eggs, beaten lightly 11⁄2 pounds (24 oz.) cottage cheese 1 ⁄2 cup Parmesan 1 ⁄2 teaspoon each: garlic powder, dried basil and oregano 9 uncooked lasagna noodles 3 cups mozzarella

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Cook sausage. Drain. Stir in sauce and water. Simmer 10 minutes. Combine eggs, cottage cheese, Parmesan and seasonings. Spread 1⁄2 cup meat sauce into sprayed 13-inch by 9-inch pan. Layer with three noodles, a third of cheese mixture, meat sauce and mozzarella. Repeat twice. Cover and bake 45 minutes. Uncover, bake 10 minutes longer or until noodles are tender. Let stand 15 minutes before serving. Tip: Use a combo of beef and sausage, all beef or turkey sausage.

No-bake grain/gluten-free power bars Daughter-in-law Jess found this on the Joyful Abode site. This is a protein-packed bar for kids and adults alike. Great for packing into kids’ lunch boxes, too and I like the fact that they’re grain/ gluten free. I can never eat just one. I renamed the recipe to fit my slight adaptation. Check out Joyful site for step-bystep photos and my blog for more power bar recipes.

21⁄2 cups favorite nuts and seeds (I used mixed nuts, flax and hemp seeds) 1 cup dried fruit (I used dried Michigan cherries, chopped) 2 cups shredded coconut 1 ⁄4 cup coconut oil 1 ⁄2 cup honey (I used raw honey) 1 tablespoon vanilla 1 ⁄4 teaspoon salt Cinnamon to taste

Roughly chop 1 cup of nuts and seeds. Place in bowl. Process remaining nuts and seeds in processor, or by hand, to make a finer chop. Add to bowl. Add fruit and coconut. Pour oil, honey, vanilla, salt and cinnamon in pan and, over low heat, cook until it boils gently, then pour over fruit mixture and blend. Pour into sprayed 13-inch by 9-inch pan that has been lined with sprayed foil or parchment. Press mixture evenly into pan. Press real hard so mixture sticks together. Put plastic wrap on top to make pressing down easier. Cool completely and cut into bars. Can be frozen up to three months.

tomatoes recipes: “I roasted several per your directions and raided my herb garden for basil, rosemary and oregano. After roasting I let them cool and removed the skin. After chopping them slightly, I tossed them (along with the delicious tomato broth) with some spinach tortellini and bacon. It made an amazing meal.” Rita Nader Heikenfeld is an

Don’t have coconut oil, which is a healthy oil? I believe a vegetable or olive oil will work, it just won’t have that extra element of flavor.
