Electric savings banked

Former council member wants rates lowered instead

Green ‘maters’ are good

“The zucchini plants are starting to produce. The first ones we planted the deer ate. Last week for the noon meal Ruth Ann fixed fried green ‘maters’ and zucchini rounds. Boy, what a meal. When a person can eat garden items, this is special and so healthy. We don’t use any spray on our garden.” FULL STORY, B5


BETHEL - A former village council member said the savings from switching the electric service supplier is not being passed on to customers. In March 2010, village council approved switching the supplier for the village’s electric utility from Duke to American Electric Power. Under the new contract, which went into effect in January, AEP is charging the village $$45.60 per megawatt hour. The Duke contract was for $64.90 per megawatt hour. The AEP contract was for four years. Gary Hutchinson, a former village council member, said the village is saving between $60,000 and $70,000 each month from the new contract. Bill Gilpin, village fiscal officer, said the average amount paid to Duke in 2010 was $178,865. The average invoice paid to AEP so far this year has been $126,930, for an average monthly difference of $51,935. “Some of the savings is being

put into a separate fund restricted for long-term maintenance and improvements of the electric system infrastructure,” Gilpin said. “The Hutchinson remainder of the savings is currently being used to improve the electric fund balance. The fund balance at the end of 2008 was nearly exhausted. The electric fund balance currently is approximately where it stood at the end of 2005.” The village has a consultant working on the long-term impact of the rate structure, Gilpin said. “The village also has information that indicates electric transmission costs will increase dramatically in 2015,” he said. “The village will use the information received from the consultant to determine if and when electric rates may be lowered.” Hutchinson said the money being put into the funds should be returned to the customers. “It’s taxation without represen-

tation,” he said. Hutchinson was a member of council when the contract with AEP was approved. “We all thought that as soon as it went into effect, the rates would be lowered,” he said. He said no official motion was passed about lowering the rates, but “we all talked about it in council. It was assumed it would happen.” “When the charges go up, you expect an increase in rates; when the charges go down, you expect a decrease,” he said. Council member Janice Ireton said it was her understanding when the contract was approved that any rate reductions would be phased in. “At this time, without all the facts in front of us, it would be irresponsible to decrease rates and then later shock residents with higher rates,” she said. She said village officials need to look at long-term energy costs before making any decision on rate cuts. “We have to do what is going to be the best thing for the village,” she said.

BETHEL - Members of the Bethel-Tate school community should plan to be at the homecoming game a little early this year if they want to catch the homecoming court. The crowning of the 2011 homecoming king and queen will be before the Sept. 30 football game during pre-game at 7:15 p.m. (see court below). “In the past, we’ve done the crowning during half-time, but we’re changing that because the Ohio Athletic Association doesn’t permit us to extend half-time. The teams can be penalized if we go over the time limit, so we’re being careful,” said Principal Susen Arn. The festivities will begin at 5 p.m. with the homecoming parade line-up at Bethel-Tate Middle School, said homecoming organizer Cindy Shepherd. The parade will start at 6 p.m. and will end at Bethel-Tate High School. Following the parade, at 7:15, the homecoming court will be presented on the field and the king and queen will be crowned. The rest of the pre-game show will follow and the game is scheduled to start at 7:45. The Tigers will be playing East Clinton High School. The Bethel-Tate High School marching band will take the field during half-time, Arn said. The homecoming dance will be from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 1, at the high school, 3420 Ohio 125. Shepherd said this year’s dance will have a Renaissance theme with red and purple decorations. For more information, visit or call the school at 734-2271, option 1.

Q: What should Bethel do to stay on the track to finan cial recovery? A: We as a group of elected officials must stay fiscally conservative. Back in 2007 and 2008 when financial troubles hit, we, as a group, did a financial restructure that cut the village of Bethel’s spending drastically. Since that time, we have set our spending at 85 percent of our appropriations and that has helped to hasten our fiscal recovery. We must stick to that plan. As we move toward getting out of fiscal emergency, we must stay ever mindful of being good stewards of the public funds we are entrusted with. Q: What do you feel is the major issue facing Bethel’s next mayor? A: While I feel like there are many issues facing the village, the one overriding concern that I have heard, while getting my petition signed, is the appearance of the village. And not just the appearance, but the state of our infrastructures. While we are a wonderful community, we are certainly a community that is showing its age when it comes to our

Ausman Whitley ty! I have been part of Bethel my entire life. My roots run deep here. As a child growing up in Bethel, I have very fond memories of the village of Bethel, shopping at Frames Department Store, Lori’s Supermarket, Ben Franklin at Christmas time, and seeing movies at Midway Theater, growing up in the Bethel Baptist Church, eating at Blue Haven, and Friday night softball at the park, and many more memories. As I grew older, I spent a lot of time at the tennis courts and enjoyed hearing the chimes at the Methodist church. It was there at the same tennis courts where I met my wife, and once we were married there was never really any question where we would live and raise our family. It was a great place to grow up as a child and to raise a family. I feel Bethel is a unique community, one that is grounded in Christian beliefs. I want to be Mayor so I can give back to the community that has given so much to me.

streets, bridges, sidewalks and curbs. We have streets that need to be paved, bridges that need replaced, as well as a business district that needs a good facelift so to speak. We have seen a start with the new lights that are going up in the intersections that we all hope will alleviate traffic problems. Along with that, the new corners look very nice, and it would be nice to see new curbs all through town. Some of these things are already in the pipeline or are being looked into. I would also like to see some of the abandoned and unsightly properties in the village cleaned up. Many people in the village do a very good job of maintaining their properties but there are a few who neglect and detract from the beauty of the village. I would love to see united effort in the cleanup, maintenance and the restoring of pride in our village. Q: What message do you have for the voters before they go to the polls? A. If you elect me to be your next mayor of Bethel, I will be a good steward of your trust. I will always be open and honest. I will always put the interest of this village and its residents a priority. I will always be willing to listen to your concerns and be willing to serve the village and its residents. I care deeply about this village and its well being. It is the place where we have raised our family and my desire is to see it prosper and grow. Our home is in this village. I have no weekend home. There will be no doubt where your mayor lives if you elect me to be your next mayor of Bethel.

A: I love living and working in Bethel. I want to be a part of ensuring Bethel is an exception to the ever growing list of villages in or near bankruptcy. As a resident and business owner for the past nine years, I have attended nearly all council and related meetings and it has been my pleasure to serve on council for the past 1.5 years. Over the years, I have witnessed what appeared to me to be nearly uncontrolled spending. With council’s commitment, accountability for spending can be implemented. As mayor, working closely with the new (two seats will be newly elected) council, we can unite and put measures into place which strengthen and benefit our village and its citizens. Over the past few months, many of you have expressed your village-related concerns to me. I’ve been blessed with a long life, and hopefully, over the years have gained wisdom which will be helpful in solving problems and providing direction. Since I am retired, I have the time to dedicate to our village’s day-to-day operation. I will be available to you. Q: What should Bethel do to stay on the track to finan cial recovery? A: 1. Control spending as our current mayor has initiated. 2. Spend less than 85 percent of income revenues. 3. Apply “save for a rainy day” theory. 4. Spend/save village’s money as if it were my own. 5. Require accountability for expenditures. Q: What do you feel is the major issue facing Bethel’s next mayor? A: Financial cuts due to the failing economy at all levels of government. Mandatory creative solutions for increasing village revenues and service stability. Q: What message do you have for the voters before they go to the polls? A: I want your vote. Please do whatever you can to help me win this election. I will uphold the Constitution of the United States, the Constitution and bylaws of the state of Ohio, and the bylaws and regulations of the village of Bethel. If elected, I promise to be the best mayor I can be. Realizing I am human; I may make mistakes, but I will be accountable for my actions and my behavior. I will be accessible to you and will need your input. It’s our village and working together, along with the new council, we can make a difference. Please vote for Rus Whitley for mayor.

Cowans’ death assures family he will not kill again By Theresa L. Herron CLERMONT COUNTY – Jesse James Cowans died of what appears to be natural causes Tuesday, Sept. 6, while on death row for the 1996 murder of Clara Swart in Monroe Township. Cowans was incarcerated at the Ohio State Penitentiary in Youngstown. He had lost what was believed to be his final appeal in April, but no execution date had been set, said Daniel Breyer, Clermont County assistant prosecutor who handled the trial in 1997. JoEllen Smith, spokesperson for the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Corrections, could not confirm the cause of death. David Swart, one of Clara’s sons, said today, Sept. 7, “justice is served. It was just served in a different manner.” “(Cowans) exhausted every

appeal,” David said. “One way or the other, he was going to die. My family will not have to worry anymore that he would get parole again. We (didn’t want what happened to us) happen to another person at his hands.” This is one of the most tragic things that can happen to a family in life, David said. “It’s bad enough to have a loved one die, but at the hands of another person, it’s horrific.” In the 14 years since Cowans was convicted of Clara’s murder, David said the family leaned on each other and good friends to get through the tragedy. Clermont County Prosecutor Donald White said Cowans was one of three people on death row from Clermont County. “All three deserve to be there.” White said the other two people on death row from Clermont County are Michael Webb, who

was convicted of killing his son. His execution is set for Feb. 22. The other is Gary Lawson, who in 1987 killed a witness to a burglary/robbery. Either he or Assistant Prosecutor Daniel Breyer were going to attend all three executions, White said. “Now, there is one we will not have to attend. He was a brutal murderer. He had killed before. When he killed Mrs. Swart, she was a loving mother, grandmother, a really good person who certainly didn’t deserve to die much less at the hands of this guy. She was a sweet lady that everyone in the neighborhood had respect for.” “This gives closure earlier than expected for the Swart family and that is good,” White said. “No one wants to sit through an execution, but it does give closure.” Breyer called Cowans “a bad guy. They talk about execution as a deterrent. If Cowans had gotten

the death penalty on the first murder, the Swart family would not have gone through what they went through. He should not have gotten parole to begin with.” There is no doubt in Breyer’s mind Cowans killed Swart, even though Cowans continuously said he was innocent. “The woman was murdered for trinkets,” Breyer said. Those trinkets were found in a pillowcase in the field behind Cowans’ home and inside his home. His palm print was found in Clara Swart’s kitchen. Swart was found strangled the morning of Aug. 29, 1996, in her Lindale-Mt. Holly home two months after Cowans was paroled from prison. He had been jailed for the 1978 murder of an elderly Over-theRhine man. Tim Swart found his mother on the floor of her kitchen strangled

and bound to the refrigerator door. Prosecutors said Cowans tied Swart’s hands with Cowans a telephone cord, strangled her with a broken purse strap and tied the strap to the refrigerator. In closing statements March 31, 1997, Breyer told jurors that evidence proves Cowans was the murderer “beyond a doubt.” He said the foundation of the state’s case included two key pieces of evidence. The first was Cowans’ palm print found on the plastic cover to a blender in Swart’s kitchen. Breyer speculated that Cowans tried to yank the cord from the blender to use against Swart. Breyer also said stolen items from Swart’s home were found in the woods near Cowan’s property and in his home.

Most Clermont Co. bus fares going up 75 cents By John Seney

after objections were raised to the increase at several public hearings. Options of 50 cents and 75 cents were considered. Administrator David Spinney recommended the 75-cent increase because it would generate enough funds to keep the bus system in the black. He said CTC operated at a deficit the past two years and had to borrow money from the county’s general funds. The extra revenue from the fare increase will be

BATAVIA - County commissioners Sept. 21 voted to increase most bus fares by 75 cents. The fare increase affects riders of the Clermont Transportation Connection buses and buses to downtown Cincinnati contracted through Metro. The CTC originally recommended a $1.25 fare increase, but commissioners asked for more options

Rider reaction, A5 used to pay back the general fund. Commissioner Ed Humphrey said he favored a 50-cent increase because he feared the higher rate would force people to use other forms of transportation. However, he voted with Commissioners Bob Proud and Archie Wilson, who said they favored the 75-cent increase. “We need to increase fares and

operate in the black,” Humphrey said. The new rate system increases CTC adult door-to-door fares from $4 to $4.75; senior, child and disabled fares for the service from $2 to $2.35; and student door-todoor fares from $3 to $3.75. The CTC express route adult fares increase from $3 to $3.75; from $1.50 to $1.85 for seniors, children and disabled; and from $2 to $2.75 for students. The Metro express route fares,

charged by Clermont County, increase from $3 to $3.75 for adults and from $1.50 to $2.35 for seniors and disabled. CTC adult ride cards, which are good for 10 fares and do not expire, go from $25 to $33. The ride cards for seniors and disabled go from $13 to $16.50 and the student ride cards go from $18 to $25. A monthly pass for Metro service increases from $120 to $150. The new rates go into effect Nov. 1.

Rouster’s Apple House closes after 72 years By John Seney

STONELICK TWP. Rouster’s Apple House, a popular stop for generations of people looking for fresh

apples and cider, has closed. The business’ U-pick blueberry and blackberry operations will continue during the summer, said owner Dan Rouster. But he will sell no more

apples, including the Krispy and Krispy Mac. “We had a poor quality apple crop this year because of the wet spring,” Rouster said. The heavy rain prevented bees from properly pollinating the crop. “I’ve never seen a year like this,” he said. The apples that were harvested will be used for cider, he said. The business was opened by Merrill and Henrietta Rouster, Dan’s parents, in 1939. Merrill Rouster developed two varieties of apples exclusive to Rouster’s, the Krispy and Krispy Mac. Dan Rouster and his wife, Donna, took over the business in 1978. He said they had no children and decided it was a good time to go into semiretirement. “The apple is a highmaintenance, high-risk crop,” he said. “We reached a point of diminishing returns. I just don’t feel like


doing it any more.” Rouster said they plan for keep the 186-acre property that includes the apple orchard and blueberry and blackberry fields. “We don’t have to sell,” he said. Rouster realizes a trip to the apple house has been a fall tradition for many families – a tradition that will be missing this year. “The customers I have talked to have been very understanding,” he said. “It wasn’t an easy decision.” The Rousters plan to spend their time doing things they haven’t had time for in the past. “Travel, restoring old cars, community service,” he said. He said he has never been away in the fall, the busy season, except when he was in the Army. “We want to thank all the customers that supported us over the years,” Rouster said. “We hope to see them from time to time.” The blueberry and blackberry picking season lasts about seven weeks during the summer. Rouster hopes to see a lot of old customers back for that in 2012.


Dan Rouster stands outside of his apple house in Stonelick Township. He and his wife Donna have decided to close the apple business. They will still be open for U-pick blueberries and blackberries in the summer. Heather Utter, organization director for the Ohio Farm Bureau in Clermont, Brown, Adams and Highland counties, said “we never want to see an agricultural business go out of business. It’s sad when you see it. It’s a loss to the community.” She said she was glad to hear Rouster’s was continuing to operate its U-pick blueberry and blackberry operations. Rouster’s apple house will open for a limited number of days this fall. It will be open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday, Sept. 23, and Saturday, Sept. 24, with 5 percent to 30 percent reductions in price on items in the

store, such as jams and jellies. Frozen cider, frozen cherries and frozen blueberries also will be available, but no apples. The store may be open for several weekends after that. “We will keep it open until we run out of product,” he said. He said customers should call 625-5504 for dates the store is open. For information about blueberry and blackberry picking next summer, customers can visit the website at site/roustersapplehouse/. The apple house is at 1986 Ohio 131.

Co. seeks changes in CECOS post-closure plan By John Seney

By John Seney

UNION TWP. – Bus riders who waited at a park and ride lot in Union TownBus ship Sept. 15 fares were not happy with a hiked, proposed A4 increase in bus fares. “It’s too much of an increase,” said Ralph Beach of Union Township. He said he would consider catching a bus in Anderson Township to go downtown if Clermont County raises fares. Deb Sims of Union Township also said she may be forced to drive to Anderson Township to catch the bus. “I’m disappointed,” she said of the Clermont County commissioners’ decision to consider raising fares. The present Clermont Transportation Connection base fare is $3 for express service and $4 for dial-aride. The commissioners are now considering three possible options for a fare increase: 50 cents, 75 cents and $1.25. Clermont Transportation Connection Director Ben Capelle came back with the three options after objections to a $1.25 fare increase were raised at several public hearings. Commissioner are expected to vote on a fare increase at the Sept. 28 meeting. Commissioner Ed Humphrey said he favors a 50-cent increase, while Commissioners Bob Proud and Archie Wilson said they favor raising the fares by 75 cents. “I think we pay enough,” said Dwayne Cole of Union Township while waiting for the downtown Cincinnati express. “There’s no public transportation in the county,” Cole said. “How do they expect us to get around.” “It’s way too much,” said Mary Lewis of Union Township of the proposed fare increases. “It would be better if they came on time.” “It’s a pretty big increase,” said Lloyd Lopez of Batavia. “But if they got to raise it, they got to raise it.” Cyd Craddock of Batavia said a smaller fare increase would help. “But they’re going to get the fares up eventually,” she said.

JACKSON TWP. - Clermont County officials have spent more than $10 million trying to get changes in the post-closure plan for the CECOS hazardous waste facility. The facility on Aber Road closed in 1997, but the fight over how to deal with the toxic mix of waste left at CECOS has continued. Clermont County Administrator David Spinney said there is evidence small amounts of toxic chemicals are leaking into the ground water at the site. CECOS is upstream from Harsha Lake, a major source of drinking water for county residents, he said. There is no evidence chemicals from CECOS have spread from the site or to Harsha Lake, but he said that was a possibility if the leakage is not controlled and properly monitored, Spinney said. Peg Malloy, manager of media relations with Republic Services, Inc. in Phoenix, said she couldn’t comment on the status of CECOS. “We are working with the EPA on a post-closure plan. There are existing plans in place to protect the environment,” she said. “I really can’t comment because we’re still in discussions.” The county raised issues with the post-closure plan for CECOS soon after it was approved in 1994 by the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency. “The county has felt for years that the post-closure plan was inadequate,” Spinney said. In 2007, the county reached a settlement with the OEPA and CECOS that called for CECOS officials to

prepare an amended postclosure plan. “What CECOS filed (in response to the settlement) was totally inadequate,” Spinney said. As a result, the county submitted a 90-page petition to OEPA in December 2010 for modification of the post-closure plan originally approved in 1994. The OEPA has yet to act upon the county’s petition. Complicating negotiations over the petition, Spinney said, is the fact that the county’s primary contact with OEPA, Harold O’Connell of the Southwest Ohio District Office, died in August. Other OEPA officials have since become involved in the negotiations, but no final decisions have been made. State Sen. Tom Niehaus said he has been involved in some of the recent discussions about CECOS. “This is just a continuation of what I have been working on for the past 10 years,” he said. Resolution of the matter has been hindered by a number of factors, Niehaus said, including new officials at OEPA and changes of ownership for CECOS. He said he will continue to work at the state level, but had no prediction when OEPA will make a decision. “It’s extremely important we do everything possible to protect the water supply of Clermont County,” Niehaus said. Meanwhile, the county continues to spend money. Since 1988, the Clermont County has spent about $3 million on attorney fees and about $7 million on testing by geologists and other consultants. The county is carrying out the fight because the

amount and variety of hazardous materials stored at the site. The chemicals identified as being dumped at CECOS include PCBs, asbestos, pesticides, benzene and dioxin. “You name it, it’s there,” Spinney said. CECOS started out as a sanitary landfill in the early 1970s, under the name Clermont Environmental Reclamation. It was later renamed CECOS. In 1976, the state approved the disposal of industrial waste at the site. Over the years, more and more hazardous materials were approved for acceptance at the site. CECOS has changed ownership over the years. Browning Ferris Industries bought it in 1983 and Allied Waste Industries, Inc. bought it in 1999. In 2008, Allied merged with Republic Services, Inc., the present owner. Spinney said the waste at CECOS is stored in metal drums and other containers buried in large lined pits called cells. “All the cells are supposed to be sealed. They’re not supposed to leak,” Spinney said. However, evidence gathered by the county suggests the waste is leaking. CECOS officials assumed in the post-closure plan the liners would last forever, Spinney said. “That’s not acceptable,” he said. “Scientific studies show the liners will leak. It’s just a matter of when.” According to the executive summary of the county’s petition, the wastes at CECOS “are not contained in any meaningful sense.” “The drums and other containers quickly deteriorate, the liners fail, precipi-

tation and other sources of water in the cells comes into contact with and becomes contaminated by the waste inside the cells, and the resulting leachate eventually escapes through the liners into the ground water, and then into the surface water,” the executive summary said. “The evidence that has accumulated since the facility was closed in 1997 indicates that this process is, alarmingly, well under way.” The CECOS post-closure plan does not adequately monitor the presence of escaping hazardous materials, Spinney said. “We need to have an early warning system,” he said. “We feel there needs to be a relocation of monitoring wells to deal with ground water flow to capture any leakage.” Another issue the county has with CECOS is retention of records. “I believe the county has by far the most comprehensive records on what’s happening at the site,” he said. Many of the records of both the OEPA and CECOS have been lost or disposed of, Spinney said. “Key records are not being maintained,” he said. Finally, the plan needs to deal with perpetual care of the site, Spinney said. The post-closure plan was approved in 1994 for 30 years. “We’re more than half way through that,” Spinney said. The OEPA has the authority to extend the time period, but hasn’t, he said. “After 30 years, they can walk away,” Spinney said. “There’s a billion pounds of hazardous waste there. Things will leak. We have to monitor it.”

Niehaus said he did not think the OEPA would allow CECOS Uecker officials to walk away. “I think from the beginning it was clear to me the OEPA felt it was necessary to Spinney monitor it as long as possible,” he said. State Rep. Joe Uecker also has b e e n involved in Niehaus meetings with the Ohio EPA. “We have not finalized the permanent closure plan or after-closure plan,” he said. “We’re still working on it.” Uecker said a decision was “coming down to the wire.” “It’s clear CECOS is trying to wait it out and hoping everyone forgets,” he said. “We can’t allow that to happen.” Uecker said he would look into the possibility of legislation to deal with CECOS. “Since the state created it, the state should take responsibility for it,” he said. Peg Malloy, manager of media relations with Republic Services, Inc. in Phoenix, said she couldn’t comment on the status of CECOS. “We are working with the EPA on a post-closure plan. There are existing plans in place to protect the environment,” she said. “I really can’t comment because we’re still in discussions.”

Teen summit to focus on safe driving By John Seney

BATAVIA - High school students from across Clermont County have been invited to a teen driving summit to encourage safe driving. The summit, sponsored by Clermont County Safe Communities, originally was scheduled for last winter, but was canceled because of the weather. The summit will take place 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 5, at UC Clermont College. Martha Enriquez, coordinator of the Clermont County Safe Communities Coalition, said the summit was intended to provide safe driving tips for teams of high school students. The team members would then bring the information back to their schools and set up activities to educate their fellow classmates about the dangers of distracted driving and

speeding. “We’re hoping to get teams and teachers from every school,” Enriquez said. The keynote speaker is Skip Phelps, father of car crash victim Miranda Phelps. Other scheduled speakers are from MADD, Children’s Hospital, TriHealth, SADD and the Ohio State Highway Patrol. TriHealth’s presentation will focus the injuries that can result from crashes, said Stephanie Lambers, with the Think First Injury Prevention Program at TriHealth. “Young people don’t understand their vulnerability to injury,” she said. Home-schooled student drivers are invited to attend the summit, but must register ahead of time. For information and to register, call Enriquez at 735-8409.

Baseball returning to Felicity-Franklin? By Scott Springer

FELICITY - The Felicity-Franklin School District Board of Education recently put a survey out to gauge the interest in bringing baseball back to Felicity-Franklin High School. Thanks to positive response, the school board gave approval to moving on with the next step of fielding a team for 2012. School board president Dave Cornelison says 87 percent of those surveyed were in favor of going ahead and putting the Cardinals back on the diamond. “There’s a common misconception that baseball was cut; that’s not the case,” Cornelison said. “We didn’t cut baseball. The last two years we tried to put out a baseball team,

we could not field enough eligible players.” Felicity-Franklin principal Bob Walker confirmed that waning interest and eligibility halted the program. Cornelison feels that situation is remedied and credits the area youth and their parents for this latest push to dust off the helmets, bases and bats. “The knothole program in Felicity has grown by leaps and bounds,” Cornelison said. “It’s spurred a huge increase in interest in baseball. We felt like if it was time to re-introduce the school to baseball, this was the time to do it.” Because the sport wasn’t offered, Felicity-Franklin had sometimes lost students, according to Cornelison.

“We want to try and nip that in the bud also,” Cornelison said. “Every time we lose a student to another school, we have to figure out why and how to address that. We felt that with the response we got from the survey, we could go ahead with this.” Currently, equipment is being inventoried to see what’s usable. The Cardinals do have a field that will need a little grooming. Cornelison feels based on the response, the Cardinals can have a starting nine on the ball yard by spring. By law, the coaching position will have to be advertised as a supplemental vacancy. Full varsity play won’t realistically occur until 2013. According to Felicity-Franklin principal Walker, the school will

have to notify the Southern Buckeye Conference of their intentions. From there, they’ll be at the mercy of area schools in terms of getting on the schedule. Many schools schedule games one to two years in advance. “2012 could be a mixture of varsity and junior varsity games, with a full schedule the following season,” Walker said. Walker’s next order of business is to contact interested parents and families and to reiterate the commitment and support needed for a “Felicity-Franklin Opening Day” to take place. Ideally, conditioning would begin in January. For more sports coverage, visit, or Scott on Twitter at @cpscottspringer.

Are you concerned about giving kids apple juice after a recent TV show revealed trace amounts of arsenic in the juice? Why or why not? “Just more Doctor Oz paranoia. Drink away, kids. If I’m wrong, it’ll save me the cost of a college education or two.” J.J. “Evidently, ‘an apple a day doesn’t keep the doctor away.’ ‘The land of Doctor Oz’ show with consultants such as Dorothy, the Tinman and the Scarecrow has only attempted to hype the evils of apple juice as a means to increase TV ratings. Unless us Americans individually consume a 55-gallon drum of apple juice daily, I think we’ll all be fine as mentioned on The Today Show regarding the heated counterpoint. “What is most disturbing to me is the fact that the Chinese may watch the Dr. Oz show. As I understand, they provide this bankrupt nation of ours with 80 percent of our daily apple consumption. That’s a lot of juice surrounding this controversy. “Shame on you, Dr. Oz. In this land of your and ours, I think you owe the Chinese a bid apology since they own through debt, a big portion of this country. You should fire all your consultants, including the Scarecrow.” J.W. “To borrow from The Bard, this is ‘much ado about nothing.’ Even the originator of the rumor, Doctor Wizard of Oz, downplays the danger of arsenic in apple juice. “I liked the discussion between two lawyers being interviewed on Fox News by Megyn Kelly recently. One of them was drinking from a bottle of apple juice while making his comments and talking about the risk. “We need to be cautious about certain aspects of our behavior, including the risks associated with smoking, overeating, lack of exercise, etc. ... But apple juice doesn’t worry me.” Bill B. “Apple juice has about the same nutritional content as soft drinks, lots of sugar and not much else. Even with no harmful chemicals, it is a lousy thing to give to kids. “If you followed this up at the FDS website at tp, you will find that this, like most other scares of this nature, is a tempest in a teapot. Oh my goodness, elephants are big and gray! Old news.” F.S.D.

There is no point to really be concerned over this issue mainly being overblown by the media, keeping in mind it is good to be alerted.” O.H.R. “I just heard the news tonight and they are saying maybe the tests done on arsenic levels in apple juice may have been done incorrectly. In either case I would not drink it until we know all the facts, especially when it comes to children.” Dave D. “We haven’t skipped a beat since Dr. Oz put his foot in his mouth. Whether it’s apple juice from a large bottle or the smaller cartons, our grandchildren enjoy their apple juice!” R.V. “Actually, I’m more concerned that they are drinking apple juice, period. We call it sugar water in our house. Best if the kids just drank good old H20.” L.A.D. “Absolutely not! Although I like knowing what is in our foods, however, if you looked deeper into the issue you find that the levels were fine. Of course that is assuming your child doesn’t drink apple juice like water. Everything in moderation.” K.L.S. “Of course I’m concerned. I was a child in the 80’s and remember having to begrudgingly give up Diet Coke! We all remember the dangers of Saccharin. And now, while maybe well intentioned, the Wizard of Oz tells me my 4-year-old can’t have apple juice. I may have to wait for the congressional hearing for real proof though. In the meantime, I’ll just serve organic apple juice, that way the arsenic is free from pesticides.” T.F.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Support senior services levy

I am writing this letter of support for the Clermont County Senior Services levy. I have leveraged Clermont County Services both professionally and personally and can attest to their value to this community. As a geriatrician, I have assisted patients and their families who deal with devastating and chronic ailments such as dementia, depression, congestive heart failure, chronic pulmonary disease and pain syndromes. Providing a day program which can provide socialization for patients who commonly become isolated with these diagnoses is critical to prolonging function and quality of life. The Clermont County Welcome Center, one of the Clermont Senior Services programs, gives family members peace of mind and provides a needed break for caregivers. The Welcome Center customers obtain both physical and mental exercise in a professional and caring environment. The eligible senior also receives a well-rounded meal which allows them an additional advantage to maximize their quality of life each day they visit the center. I ask you each to consider lending your support for the levy. I will be providing my positive vote, not only as a professional who refers to the center, but as a

family member whose loved one needs this service. Dr. Sally Brooks Vice President, Medical Development Kindred Healthcare Milford

Levy will benefit seniors

Since my heart surgery in 2008, I have been dependent upon Clermont Senior Services’ transportation. Three times weekly I am provided a ride to my cardiac rehab sessions. This has been crucial because I have no vehicle for these appointments. And rehab is so important for improving my health. I have been so impressed with the sensitivity of the Clermont Seniors’ staff members. The drivers, especially, are so helpful to those passengers using wheelchairs or oxygen tanks. In some instances, they have even walked a client to their front door. What a compassionate group. This November, a renewal levy for Senior Services will be presented to voters. I understand that there would be no increase in our taxes. I encourage all voters to do their part to pass the levy. Hundreds of local senior citizens will benefit. Chris Burroughs Batavia

Senior levy much needed

I am pleased to make readers of The Bethel Journal aware of the

levy in support of Senior Services in the Clermont County area. The date of the election is Nov. 8. This is a much needed levy for those in need of services, such as Meals on Wheels, transportation for medical needs and programs that are received for seniors in the Clermont County area. Don’t hesitate to get in touch with Clermont Senior Services at 724-1255 for needs. Ann Ferguson Milford

Vote for seniors

I am writing in regards to the senior services levy. The Welcome Center is where my mom, a Bethel resident, has been going since June 28, 2011. My family has seen great results in her wellbeing and quality of life. The staff is very friendly and professional. The Welcome Center gives me, my sister, brother, and sister-inlaw a much needed break from Mom’s 24-hour care. It also gives us peace of mind that Mom is in a facility that provides both mental and physical exercise. I live in Warren County, but I have been telling my friends and family who live in Clermont County, to please vote for this levy. I tell them how great the programs are and that we are blessed to be able to send Mom to the Welcome Center. Patricia Chandler Price Mason

Bethel electric rates should be lower The electric rates in Bethel, Ohio, have not been lowered as they should have been. A new contract was negotiated with American Electric Power (AEP) during 2010. Bethel council accepted the new contract thinking that these new lower rates would b passed on to our customers. Each customer of Bethel power should have seen a savings in their electric bill starting in January 2011. The savings in cost of power under the new contract is significant. The savings have varied from $60,000 to $70,000 each month. That savings has yet to be passed on to the customers using electric in and around the village of Bethel. The village administrator was asked by council to have a rate survey done for the purpose of lowering electric rates, but so far he had not been forthcoming. A majority of village officials have chosen to leave electric rates artificially high and in doing do, have in essence, levied a tax on every customer without their permission. So far, this “tax has

The savings have varied from $60,000 to $70,000 each month. That savings has yet to be passed on to the customers using electric in and around the village of Bethel. brought in more than $600,000 to the village treasury. Some officials now would like to spend that money on items and services for which the voters of Bethel have had no input. Should this be allowed to go on? I think not. The village accounts will be enriched by the end of the current contract with AEP by nearly $2.5 million. These overcharges should by right be returned. I urge the resident and customers using electric of the village of Bethel to voice your opinion and stop this diverting of your hard-earned money for purposes not know and better left to voter consent. Gary Hutchinson lives in Bethel.

Electronic payments for benefits a must For years, Social Security has stressed the convenience, security and safety of getting benefit payments electronically. Soon, direct deposit (or Direct Express) will not just be the best way to receive federal benefit payments – it will be the only way. The U.S. Department of the Treasury has announced a new rule that will phase out paper checks for federal benefit and non-tax payments by March 1, 2013. Here is how the transition will work. • Anyone applying for Social

Security or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits on or after May 1, 2011, will receive their payments electronically, while those already receiving paper checks will need to switch to electronic payments by March 1, 2013. • Anyone already receiving their benefit payments electronically will continue to receive their payment as usual on their payment day. • People receiving benefits have the option of direct deposit to a bank or credit union account (of their choice) or into a Direct Express Debit MasterCard account

(a treasury-recommended prepaid card option). Visit www. to learn more about this option. • Social Security, SSI, Veterans Affairs, Railroad Retirement Board, Office of Personnel Management benefits and other nontax payments are included. For most people getting monthly benefits, this won’t really be a change. Already eight out of 10 beneficiaries receive payments electronically. Why the push for electronic payments instead of paper checks received in the mail? • It’s safer: No risk of checks

being lost or stolen. • It’s easy and reliable: No need to wait for the mail or go to the bank to cash a check. • It saves taxpayers money: No cost for postage and paper and printing. • It saves you money: No check-cashing fees or bank fees. • It’s good for the environment: It saves paper and eliminates transportation costs. If you still get your check in the mail, don’t wait for the new rule to go into effect to enjoy the benefits of electronic payments. Please visit today and begin getting your

Soup plus bread equals a perfect rainy day meal It’s a soup and bread kind of day: drizzly rain, a bit chilly, and the sun hasn’t broken through the clouds at all. The recipes I’m sharing are perfect for autumn. I encourage you to try the bread. You won’t believe how easy it is, less than 5 minutes mixing up the dough, and by hand! Everyone will think it came from an artisan bakery. It’s the perfect accompaniment to my restaurantstyle black bean soup.

Rita’s black bean soup, like Panera’s

For Gerri. This is a good, basic black bean soup that is as close to Panera’s as I can get. But I’ll share yours, too, so don’t be shy about sending it in. Feel free to add more of any of the seasonings. 1 cup finely chopped onion 2 teaspoons minced garlic 1 generous cup finely chopped celery 1 ⁄2 cup finely chopped red bell pepper 1 teaspoon cumin Pinch or 2 of thyme 2 cans, 15 oz approx. black beans, undrained 1 can vegetable or chicken broth, 14.5 oz size 1 tablespoon cornstarch mixed with 1 tablespoon water Lemon juice to taste Cayenne pepper to taste Garnish: sour cream, cilantro

Film a pot with olive oil. A d d onion, garlic, celery, bell p e p p e r, cumin and Rita t h y m e . Heikenfeld Cook until Rita’s kitchen onions are soft but not brown. Add one can of beans and the can of broth. Bring to a boil, lower to a simmer, and cook about 10 minutes. Puree soup. I use a hand blender but you can use a potato masher – you’ll just get a chunkier soup. Add rest of beans and cornstarch mixture. Cook until thickened. Stir in lemon juice to taste and cayenne if you like. Garnish as desired. Serves 6.

Easy Artisan No-Knead Bread

Variations of this recipe have been around a few years. It really is so easy, but I’ve given detailed instructions anyway since this is a very unorthodox way of baking bread. Don’t be put off, either, by my long explanation. The best pan for this is a heavy Dutch oven or stockpot, anywhere from 5-7 quart with a lid and it has to be oven safe to 450. I use my Le Creuset enameled cast iron pan.


The best pan for this bread is a heavy Dutch oven or stockpot, anywhere from 5-7 quart with a lid and it has to be oven safe to 450. Check out the photo of this beautiful, crusty, better than bakery, bread. For more photos of the bread, from start to finish, check out my blog at 3 cups bread flour, plus bit more for dusting The original recipe says you can use either bread flour (it has more protein/gluten than all purpose so you get a more rustic texture) or all purpose. I’ve only made it with bread flour. 1 ⁄4 teaspoon instant yeast (Rapid rise) 11⁄2 teaspoons salt 11⁄2 cups + 1 tablespoon water Olive oil Flour or cornmeal for dusting (I used cornmeal) Whisk flour, yeast and salt together. Make a well in the center. Add water and stir with a spatula for about a minute, until blended. That’s all it takes, time wise. It will look wet and shaggy. Coat inside of a bowl with olive oil. Put dough in bowl

Annual fall camp out to be held at fairgrounds For the fourth year in a row, the Clermont County Fairgrounds in Owensville will be the site of a fall camp out, using campsites throughout the grounds. All campsites are equipped with water and electric. Games for the kids are being planned as well as costume judging, hay rides, campfire storytelling and trick or treating. Campsites will be judged and prizes awarded for the scariest and the most seasonally decorated. One of the highlights of the weekend is the chili judging contest to be held Saturday afternoon. Last year, 14 pots of chili were submitted. Friday night, the Wonders of the World 4-H Club is planning a dance. Music by the Mike & Dan Trio is being planned for Saturday night. All of these events are sponsored by the Clermont County Agricultural Society as a way to reach out to the community. Any proceeds from the weekend will go

toward capital improvements since the agricultural society is a non-profit organization. Additional information as well as applications for can be found on the fair’s website, There are plenty of campsites available. The fall camp out is not the only thing happening on the fairgrounds during October. • The classic car show, known as the Pumpkin Run, will be held Sept. 30. Oct. 1 and Oct. 2. • The CNE Rockets baseball team, the Milford Longhorns baseball team and the CNE high school wrestling team will be sponsoring a haunted trail on the north end of the fairgrounds. This will be the second year for the haunted trail and reports from last year’s trail were that it was one of the best in the area. The dates are Friday, Oct. 14, and Saturday, Oct. 15, and Friday, Oct. 21, and Saturday Oct. 22. • Friends of the Fair will host two events Saturday,


Oct. 22, during the fall camp out. Saturday afternoon, there will be a quarter auction held in the 4-H Hall, and that evening, also in the 4-H Hall, a casino night. These events are open to the public and not restricted to the campers. In fact, the public is invited to attend. In 2010, Friends of the Fair raised enough money to build a brand new 4-H horse barn on the fairgrounds. Their current project is to build a bigger and better show ring for hogs, sheep, goats and cattle. The quarter auction and the casino night represent their fall fundraiser. In the spring, they also hold a banquet and silent auction. This year’s banquet is scheduled for May 5 in the multi-purpose building. Submitted by Jan Schoellman

flour. Let rest 15 minutes. Shape into a ball – the ball will be somewhat flat. Coat a cotton towel (not terry cloth) that has been dusted with cornmeal or flour. Place dough on towel and cover with another towel. Let rise 1-2 hours or until doubled in size. Now preheat your oven to 450 and while it’s preheating put the pan in with the lid on. Some recipes say to put the pan in the oven for at least 30 minutes, but I find the 20 minutes it takes to preheat my oven is just fine. Carefully, with mitts, take the pan out of the oven and remove the lid, again with mitts. Turn the dough

Title insurance a safety net for those buying homes Today’s extremely low interest rates are prompting some people to look into getting their own home. Many are first-time buyers and, if you’re one of them, there’s one item you need to consider at the time of purchase. Tiah Collins of Westwood said she’s now learned the importance of buying what’s called title insurance. She and her husband had purchased a house on a land contract. “We paid the seller $1,500 a month from August 2006 to May 2007.

At that time we were able to get approved for a loan through W e l l s F a r g o Howard Ain Bank,” she Hey Howard! said. Collins said they bought the house and began making payments to Wells Fargo. But then, last year, she said, “We got the sheriff knocking on our door saying the house had a ‘for sale’ date. The house was being foreclosed upon.” It turns out even though Collins was making her monthly mortgage payments, the loan belonging

to the prior owner had never been paid off. “We were doing what we were supposed to do, but they say the seller’s loan was the first lien holder on the house,” Collins said. “Therefore, that was the best lien so … we’re just out.” Wells Fargo also sued Collins because the house was being taken over by that prior lender. Fortunately, Wells Fargo was able to get its loan paid in full because it had required Collins to buy title insurance on behalf of the bank. Unfortunately, the Collins didn’t buy title insurance for themselves so they lost the house to the first lender. Had the Collins’ bought an owner’s title insurance policy, it would have paid off the first lender and they could have remained in the house. “We didn’t buy title insurance because we didn’t know about it. We were first-time home buyers,” she said. On top of everything else, Collins said this whole affair is going to continue to haunt them because it’s going to go against their credit rating. “Had I known about title insurance, definitely I would have gotten it,” she said. Collins later sued the seller but the case was dismissed because no one was able to prove where the money went. Bottom line when buying a house, always hire an attorney to make sure you’re fully protected – especially if you’re a first-time home buyer. And be sure to consider buying a title insurance policy to protect yourself, not just your lender. Howard Ain answers consumer complaints weekdays on WKRC-TV Local 12.

Engines Rev for the annual Pumpkin Run in Owensville The 36th annual Pumpkin Run will be held Sept. 30, Oct. 1, and Oct. 2, at the Clermont County Fairgrounds in Owensville. It is one of the largest car shows in southwest Ohio. “We expect over 3,000 1970-model or older cars and around 15,000 people to attend the event sponsored by the Fastiques Rod and Custom Car Club,” said Fastiques member Frank Witt. “What’s really great about the Pumpkin Run is that so much of the profit is given back to the community. Last year, our non-profit was able to give $50,000 to the Shriners’ Burns Center, along with supporting other charities.” Witt said people attend the event from all over the country; most drive their vintage cars here. “In addition to the amazing cars on display, we have all kinds of competitions, games and events for children and families, lots of food and live music,” he said.

Green ‘maters,’ zucchini are good always enjoy this program. The men of the club make cakes and the folks of Bethel Woods judge them. The categories are: The prettiest, the funniest, most original and I tried but … There were quite a number of cakes. I would not have liked to have been a judge. The folks did a fine job. The meal was wonderful prepared by Kate’s Carryout. Everyone enjoyed the meal and ate lots of seconds. The dessert was good with folks taking some home to eat later. That is what it is all about. The Bethel Lions Club always enjoy doing this for the folks. The first pancake breakfast for the season will be Oct. 29. Start your week by going to the house of worship of your choice and praise the Good Lord that all of us try to serve. God bless all. More later. George Rooks is a retired park ranger.

debates, platforms and issues. Older adults are much more likely to be registered to vote, Linda and much Eppler more likely Caring and to show up polls. Sharing at the The senior vote is beginning to look like a golden goose to candidates. In the last few elections, I have noticed attempts by both major parties to scare senior citizens into voting for their candidates. Most of the hype is distorted and unwarranted. Don’t cast an ignorant vote. If you don’t know much about the upcoming elections, start paying attention now. Read your local newspaper – this one. There will be many letters to the editor in the next few weeks. Ask people you respect about the candidates and issues you are interested in. Watch a variety of political shows on TV – not just one channel. Don’t just

vote your party line. Honestly consider those in other parties. Absentee ballots are a great way for senior citizens to vote. Many elderly people no longer drive, so voting by mail may be their only option. There are no longer restrictions on who can do it, other than being a registered voter. It’s so simple and convenient that I do it myself. It’s especially convenient for a November election. If it’s cold, and raining or snowing Nov. 8, you will be glad you voted by mail. If you would like a form to request an absentee ballot, please call us at 7241255 and we will gladly mail it to you. We can also send a voter registration form if you need one. After you mail in your request, the ballot will be mailed to you by the Clermont County Board of Elections. Please call today. Time is running out.

Be an informed voter this Nov. The signs of fall are here. Yard signs, that is. With an election just weeks away Nov. 8, large road signs and yard signs are everywhere. Political offices as well as state and local issues are up for election this year, including the senior services levy. I wonder if the high percentage of eligible voters that didn’t vote in the last two elections, regretted it later. I hope they did. There aren’t many good excuses for not voting. I hate to hear someone say his one vote doesn’t make a difference. The truth is every vote makes a difference. When we lived in Indiana, one local election was won by just two votes. If my husband and I had stayed home, it would have been a tie. My vote changed the election. OK, not my vote alone, but in conjunction with everyone else’s. The point is every vote was the deciding vote. In a non-presidential election year, only about 37 percent of voting age Americans actually vote. Polls show that senior citizens take more interest in


Mrs. Simmons. While watching a program on television last week, the folks were playing music. One feller played the fiddle or violin. It made me remember my dad. Dad played the fiddle. I imagine when dad was young and living in Kentucky. Up one of the hollers in Russell Springs the entertainment was a dance. Dad tried to teach my brother and me to play the fiddle. But us boys didn’t have time for this. We needed to play as young folks do. Dad was a blacksmith and shod horses. I would be turning the handle of the blower and watching Dad make a horseshoe. He would turn around and say keep that blower going or the fire will go out. We are hoping to go fishing this afternoon after the nurse checks Ruth Ann’s leg where she had the surgery.

Howdy folks, This coming Friday will be the first day of fall. The time and year is sure getting by us, don’t you think? We got the grass mowed at the farm, (Ruth Ann’s cousins). It was about 18 acres. This will be the last mowing for the horse pasture. Probably one more time for the yards. We got word a friend of ours’ mother had passed away. She was a wonderful lady and will be missed not only by her family, but by the community. This lady was a homemaker and very involved in the church and community. The church folks will miss Betty A. Arnold. Last week, Ruth Ann and I did a job we have been putting off. We defrosted one of the freezers, this was the upright one. Now we have a couple more to do.
