The position was created by Bethel Village Council specifically for Wallace, who has been working as a regular auxiliary officer since his retirement. As an auxiliary emeritus officer, Wallace will no longer be required to do street patrols. FULL STORY, A2

Seither leads Cardinal Club

By Kellie Geist

Kid magnet. When you meet the Felicity Cardinal Club’s new unit director, Joe Seither, one thing is obvious – the kids love him. “As soon as we started talking to Joe, we knew he was a kid magnet. His personality and demeanor are just perfect for the job,” said Nancy Ball, Boys and Girls Club of Clermont County Executive director. Seither started at the Felicity Cardinal Club Sept. 13, but he is no stranger to the Boys and Girls Club organization. Previous to his position on Clermont County, he worked at the Boys and Girls Club in Newport, Ky. “I live in Amelia, so (Felicity) was closer to home for me and I wanted to be able to give something back to my own community,” Seither said. Seither said he hopes to bring more national Boys and Girls Club programs to the Cardinal Club. He also said his ability to connect

really speak their language. I know what’s going on in their world,” he said. Seither, 31, graduated from Anderson High School and earned his bachelors in electronic media

from the University of Cincinnati. As a former member of the UC swim team, Seither can often be found playing dodge ball with the kids during their gym time as well as helping them with fractions during power hour. Although Newport and Felicity have a lot of the same socio-economic struggles, Seither said, the kids in Felicity are entirely different to work with. “These kids seem to be a lot more appreciative of what they have and what we do,” he said. “They are thankful for what they get, even when it’s something small.” Ball said her organization started looking for a new unit director after Sherri McClure left earlier this year. McClure helped open the Cardinal Club two years ago. “She was the inaugural club director and we really appreciate everything she did for us and for the kids,” Ball said. The club, which Ball said has been popular since day one, currently has about 80 members with no waiting list.

The next time you pay your bill at the village of Bethel utilities office, expect to talk to the teller through a glass window. Bethel village council members approved the installation of two three-quarter-inch thick tempered glass secure payment windows with slots in the utilities office after a local bank was robbed in June. “The security payment window has been a topic of discussion over the past couple of years,” said village Administrator Travis Dotson. “After the last robbery of Key Bank, we decided to move forward with the project.” Fiscal Officer Angel Burton said the village can afford the window since it will be paid for out of the water, electric and garbage fund, which is in the black. The “$3,000 is earmarked for the security window and the money is already appropriated,” she said.

“There was a reallocation made, but that doesn’t involve any increase in appropriations, just moving funds from one line item to another.” Dotson said he did not believe the utilities office ever has been robbed, but the window would further deter people from attempting to rob the office. “To my knowledge, we have not been robbed in the past and the fact that the police department is in the same building probably has something to do with that,” he said. The windows should be installed in the coming weeks, Dotson said. Bethel Police Chief Mark Planck said the department is still tracking down the suspect who robbed the Key Bank at 200 W. Plane Street in June. The suspect is described as a black male who presented a note to tellers demanding $100 and $50 bills. Anyone with information about the robbery should contact Planck at 734-2256.

Prosecutor challenges commission candidate’s allegations By Theresa L. Herron therron@communitypress.com

Members of the Union Township Republican Central Committee received a letter last week from Clermont County Prosecutor Donald White rebutting comments allegedly made by GOP-endorsed county commissioner candidate Archie Wilson at an Aug. 2 meeting, White claims. Wilson accused White of not disclosing all the facts in the death of Cecelia Slaby, the 2-year-old left in the back seat of her mother’s car all day in the heat Aug. 23, 2007. The incident happened outside Glen Este Middle School, where her mother Brenda Nesselroad Slaby was a vice principal. White did not prosecute the

mother. White asked Ted Stevenot, GOP committee chair, if he could attend another meeting to address Wilson’s alleged comments. Stevenot said White is welcome to a meeting after the election. All committee meetings between now and Nov. 2 are lengthy because members are working to get voters to the polls. “He is welcome to come, but Wilson is the endorsed candidate and this is a Republican meeting,” Stevenot said, who added White was told he could come to the next meeting, be introduced and he could talk to anyone who approached him. “He did not come to the meeting.” “I hardly remember the remarks made that related to Don (White),”

Stevenot said. “I’m not sure what the allegations are. I do not remember them being the highlight of the commentary Archie made when he was our guest. I’m surprised by this. I did not leave that meeting and have a lot of people talk to me about what was said.” White said in the letter to committee members that the autopsy done on the toddler stated she died of injuries caused by “systemic hyperthermia.” No other injuries or trauma were found during the autopsy. “There were no other signs of foul play found during the autopsy,” White said. “The Union Township police department did a very thorough investigation and they agreed with me and my staff that it was the negligence of Slaby leav-

ing her child in the car all day. There is not one iota of evidence that points in any other direction.” Wilson said last week that he believes more investigation should have been done, and he did not know if an autopsy had been performed. “I never said there was a cover up,” Wilson said. He said an anonymous letter was delivered to his home that said more investigation was needed. The Community Press has a copy of the letter and names and dates have been redacted. “People believe there should have been more investigation,” he said. Wilson also said the prosecutor should have taken himself off the

Two anonymous tips lead investigators to Rose’s address where they inspected the van after obtaining a search warrant, McElfresh said. McElfresh also said he is meeting with the Clermont County Prosecutor’s Office to discuss further charges against Rose. “Regardless of the time of day, people out there driving have to pay attention to their surroundings,” he said. “You have to know what’s going on in front you, behind you and beside you.” The crash remains under investigation.

“He doesn’t have to put in the 24 hours a month, but he’ll still be available to do things in an official capacity,” said Police Chief Mark Planck. “He takes care of the property room, helps me with parades and special functions and helps me clean out the cars.” Wallace said he enjoys helping Planck, but that he also wanted to work behind the scenes to let the new chief establish himself. “I was trying to keep it extremely low key because I didn’t want any confusion

I never knew Scott was going to represent her. I would not have called her if I had known she was represented by an attorney.” As far as the grand jury, White said, “you don’t take cases to the grand jury when you don’t believe you can get a conviction.” Two people at the Aug. 2 meeting verified that Wilson accused White of a cover-up in this case.

the guys know I’m running the show,” Planck said. By helping with special events and with other extra help Planck needs, Wallace said he gets a chance to see how his four-year tenure as chief impacted the department. “It’s always good to see where the younger generation has progressed and stepped forward,” he said. “It makes you feel pretty decent to know you had a part in some of this. They have some very talented people down there who are doing an excellent job.”

as to who the chief of police was,” Wallace said. “But, his manpower is down and the cost of service and demands of modern police work are still there and it’s not fair to throw that extra burden out there on Mark. What we’re really doing here is formalizing an informal arrangement we had.” The new police chief said he appreciated Wallace giving him time to run the department on his own. “John is a top notch individual and I’m glad he did that because that way

Archie’s misinformation. He is repeating a statement by someone who does not know what he is talking about.” “(Wilson is) talking about this now because he knows I’m supporting Scott Croswell for commissioner. Since I’m supporting Scott, he’s trying to damage my reputation by making defamatory statements about me when he knows they are not true. There is not one word of truth in what he said and he knows it,” White said. Croswell has been elected twice as a Republican, but the party endorsed Wilson for this year’s race. Croswell said he chose to run as an independent to give all voters in Clermont County a chance to determine who holds this seat, not just the Republican Party voters during the primary. “Personally, I will not represent a party whose leadership condones the campaign Mr. Wilson is running. I am running to give the entire Clermont County (community) a choice ... an opportunity to vote and make a decision.” “I’m not surprised a letter has been sent (by White) because I am aware of the allegations. But I was not aware the letter had been sent,” Croswell said about White’s letter. Croswell, Brenda Slaby’s attorney after her child’s death, said there was no cover-up. “It absolutely did not occur. I never had a personal conversation with Don White concerning the case. My discussions were confined to talking to the chief deputy prosecutor, Woody Breyer.” “Don White had no choice. There was no criminal (offense) under Ohio law. Do you think he would cover up something as public as that case was?” Croswell said. “Mr. Wilson has spent the last year spreading false and malicious rumors about this (my) campaign. This is one of a number of rumors he is doing for what he perceives for political gain,” Croswell said. “I personally think his conduct is deplorable and I wish he would stop to think about the many innocent people he hurts by spreading these rumors,” Croswell said. “True Christians don’t spread these types of vile and vicious rumors that Archie spreads. This can hurt innocent parties.”

POLITICAL NOTEBOOK FOP endorses Ferenc

Members of the Fraternal Order of Police, Ohio Valley Lodge 112, have endorsed Richard P. Ferenc for Judge of the Clermont County Court of Common Pleas. “It is an honor and privilege to have gained the trust and support of the women and men who know the court system from the inside,” Ferenc said. Ferenc has successfully prosecuted many serious criminal cases as an award winning former chief assistant felony prosecutor. He also successfully litigated a wide range of complex civil trials in the common pleas court. “It is clear that the FOP was reassured by Ric Ferenc’s 32 years of balanced trial experience in the common pleas court,” said State Senator Tom Niehaus, chair of the Ferenc for Judge Committee.

Wilson endorsed by FOP Lodge 112

Jim Sauls, chair for the Committee to Elect Archie Wilson Commissioner, announced that Archie Wilson received a letter from Colonel Daryl Zornes, Retired, Secretary for Ohio Valley Lodge 112, Fraternal Order of Police, stating, “We are pleased to advise you that the general membership of the F.O.P. voted to endorse you as a candidate for Clermont County Commissioner.” Wilson was invited to an interview where he spoke at length about his vision for Clermont County.

Almost two-thirds of the high school students who attended a youth summit on suicide prevention said they knew someone who had attempted suicide. The April summit at UC Clermont College was organized because of the rising incidence of suicides

by young people. There were 39 suicides in Clermont County in 2009, the most ever, said Lee Ann Watson, associate director of the Clermont County Mental Health and Recovery Board. The groups with the highest numbers, she said, were adult males, elderly males and young people. “We needed to see what we can do to change things,” said Virginia Dennis, coordinator of the Clermont County Suicide Prevention Coalition.. Dennis said 165 students from 10 high schools participated in the summit.

The students discussed issues such as bullying, the stigma of suicide and why young people choose suicide. Their opinions about suicide and how to deal with it were collected, and the results presented at a Sept. 22 town hall meeting. “It was one of the most exciting events I’ve ever been involved in,” Watson said. “The kids had fabulous ideas.” Dennis said the coalition’s next step is to encourage students who participated in the summit to get the message out to the rest of the students at their schools

What the students said

Some of the results from a survey of 165 high school students who attended a youth summit on suicide prevention in April: • 65 percent knew someone who attempted suicide. • 37 percent had thoughts of suicide in the past 12 months. • 14 percent said they have made at least one suicide attempt. • 58 percent said they have been bullied at school. • 40 percent reported cyberbullying. • 60 percent said feeling depressed and possibly suicidal was a common feeling. • 49 percent had lost someone they knew to suicide. • 61 percent wanted to be involved in suicide prevention efforts. • Before the summit, 89 percent said they would tell an adult if someone they knew was suicidal; after the summit, 98 percent said they would tell an adult. • 99 percent thought the summit was important and should be held yearly.

County to adjust appropriations By Kellie Geist kgeist@communitypress.com

KELLIE GEIST/STAFF

Current and former members of the Clermont Senior Services kitchen staff as well as other agency employees, project partners and local government representatives cut the ceremonial ribbon on the new Clermont Senior Services kitchen facility Wednesday, Sept. 22.

Clermont Senior Services opens new kitchen By Kellie Geist kgeist@communitypress.com

Clermont Senior Services officially opened the new kitchen facility Wednesday, Sept. 22, during a ribboncutting ceremony. Clermont Senior Services Executive Director George Brown thanked the agency staff, funding partners and project team. This new facility is the first permanent home for Clermont Senior Services Meals-on-Wheels program, which the agency has been offering since 1972.

“Having a permanent home for Meals-on-Wheels have been a long time coming,” Brown said. “ ... We are grateful for all the people who helped make this possible.” Clermont County Commissioner Bob Proud, who used to work for Clermont Senior Services, said it’s great to see how the agency has progressed in the last 25 years. “I want to congratulate Clermont Senior Services on this wonderful facility and thank each and every one of our (citizens) who make the

The Clermont County administration must make some adjustments to the 2010 appropriations, but no major changes or cuts are expected at this point. Budget Director Sukie Scheetz presented a budget update to the commissioners during a work session Monday, Sept. 20. During the presentation, Scheetz said the commissioners will have to make some adjustments to the county’s appropriations before the end

of the year. Some of those changes include moving money from the county’s reserve fund because employees did not take furloughs, increasing appropriations to pay for maintenance contracts in the auditor’s office and at the board of elections and changing the appropriations for the court of common pleas to fill a position. Other changes also are needed, Scheetz said. Scheetz said the county should be able to finish the year without exceeding the original total appropriated amount, but money may have

to be transferred between departments and offices to pay for the appropriation increases. Some changes in next year’s budget requests also will need to be addressed, Scheetz said. Some of those changes may include additional money for the county law library, additional costs for broadband and other equipment replacement and maintenance needs. The commissioners will start looking at the budget later this fall and should approve the 2011 appropriations by Dec. 15, Scheetz said.

Remember to prepare for disasters

PROVIDED

Grant Career Center Culinary Careers senior Mikey Wilhoit serves lunch to math instructor Earl Bradley and members of the Horticulture program in preparation for the Sports Gallery Restaurant, which opened at the center Sept. 21.

Grant Career sports restaurant opens

The Culinary Careers Program at Grant Career Center opened the Sports Gallery Restaurant at the Career Center Tuesday, Sept. 21. The Sports Gallery will be open to the public Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays each week. Lunch hours are 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. The students have been hard at work preparing the menu and practicing cooking skills that will result in delicious meals offered to

ACTIVITIES

the public. The menu includes homemade soups, a variety of luncheon salads and specialty sandwiches. The students also will offer daily specials and desserts. Food preparation is included in the student course of study at the Career Center in the Culinary Careers Program. This program trains students for careers in the hospitality industry including food service,

banquets and catering. Grant Career Center’s kitchen is equipped with state-of-the-art cooking equipment and a lab that is designed for student rotation. Perfecting their skills in each area of restaurant operation, students will be able to secure employment as a chef’s helper, cook, pantry worker, sauté cook, server, broiler chef, food production manager or restaurant manager.

If your family was forced to “shelter in place,” basically remain in your home, with no access to tap water or outside food, do you have enough food and water stored to take care of every member of your family, including pets, for at least three days? “A lot of people will say it won’t be necessary,” said Clermont County Health Commissioner Marty Lambert. “But, remember that bad wind storm we had in recent years? Some people in this very county were without power for over a week. By putting together a basic emergency supply kit today, we can be prepared for disasters that could hit our community tomorrow.” Contents of your shelter in place kit should include one gallon of fluids per person per day (and don’t forget your pets,) a three day supply of non-perishable food, both prescription and nonprescription drugs like ibuprofen, a battery powered radio, extra batteries, several flashlights, and a first aid kit. “Think of your family and their special needs,” said Lambert. “If there is a baby in the house, keep a supply of diapers. If there are children, keep some puzzles and coloring books in your kit.

Don’t forget when you change your clocks in the spring and fall to check the expiration dates on the items in your kit, so everything is fresh and usable when you need it.” Lambert also stresses the need for a family emergency plan. “The first thing everyone wants to know after a disaster is that their family is OK. Make a plan on how you’ll contact each other. Texting is a great option, and if local communications are out, you might have better luck reaching a friend or relative that’s farther away from the disaster. You should have two meeting places if you are separated when a disaster occurs. One location could be at your home, but in the event you can’t return home, agree to meet at a friend or relative’s home that lives outside your neighborhood,” she said. “Make sure everyone has the address of the meeting place, and all the contact phone numbers with them at all times. If texting is an option, take the time to learn how to send out group messages,” said Lambert. For more information about emergency preparedness, visit the Clermont County general Health District Web site at www.ClermontHealthDistrict.org.

Clermont joins childhood obesity awareness campaign The Clermont County commissioners have proclaimed September as “National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month.” The Clermont County Coalition for Activity and Nutrition (CAN) has been formed to improve nutritional awareness and encourage physical activity. “We invite the community to visit the website www.ClermontHealthDistrict.org and click on Clermont CAN. You will find

information about no-cost or lowcost places and spaces for physical activity, along with tips on how to work exercise into your life. I believe that by drawing attention to this problem, we can create awareness that will result in parents, children, and communities making healthier decisions,” said Clermont County Health Commissioner Marty Lambert. Clermont CAN encourages everyone to be active and eat smart.

Lady Tiger soccer gears up for strong finish By Mark Chalifoux

mchalifoux@communitypress.com

The Bethel-Tate High School girls’ soccer team is playing a tougher schedule this season and the Tigers have played well through the first half of the season, going 3-1-4. “We’re doing pretty good,” said head coach Brenda Woodward. “The defense is doing a really good job, but we need to work harder offensively. We’re getting shots on goal,

but we just need to finish and put it in the net.” Woodward has a young team this season so she said she’s happy with the progress the team has made through the first half of the season. She said the key to more success in the final group of games is offense. “We just need to put everything together and finish shots and avoid the small mistakes that are penalizing us,” she said. Bethel-Tate scored eight goals in a season-opening

Woodward said she expects the team to finish strong. “CNE and Amelia are the toughest teams in our division and we play them both again at the end of the season,” she said. “They definitely won’t let that mistake happen again against CNE and we have a lot of home games in the second half of the season, which is a big advantage as well. We should be pretty good in the second half of the season.” Woodward said the girls play with excitement on the field. “They are a strong squad with a deep bench and we have a lot of speed and depth,” Woodward said. “The girls give a good game every time out.”

Bethel-Tate 2000 football team honored By Adam Turer eastsports@communitypress.com

Bethel-Tate’s football program has won just two conference championships in its history. Last year, the 1968 team was inducted into the school’s Athletic Hall of Fame. Friday, Sept. 24, the 2000 team was honored in a pre-game ceremony before the Tigers took on Western Brown. The school celebrated the 10-year anniversary of its Southern Buckeye Conference title. The 2000 team, led by head coach Don Sizer, finished 7-3. Quarterback/defensive back Andrew Hesketh earned all-conference, all-city, alldistrict and honorable mention all-state honors. “It was a great time, it was really good to see my old coaches,” said Hesketh of the pre-game event. Hesketh still holds the school record for career interceptions. He is currently a student at University of Cincinnati. The former Tiger star hopes the reunion Friday night will inspire current and future Tigers football players. “I hope that we set an example and set a standard,” said Hesketh. “I hope seeing us there pushes the players to be better.” Bringing back past champions is another way

for the Tigers to engage the local community. Bringing in alum Wayne Stacy to be the head football coach and athletic director this year was another step. “Winning a league championship is a very huge accomplishment,” said assistant head coach and director of football operations Steve Daugherty. “It’s good to get school pride and community involvement back within the athletic department.” Stacy and Daugherty were instrumental in bringing in the program’s two championship teams to

campus to be recognized at Bethel-Tate. Reminders of past success should help the current staff as they aim to build a new winning tradition. “I hope seeing us inspires them to do the same thing, if not more,” said Sizer. Sizer, now the defensive line coach at Wilmington College, enjoyed returning to Bethel-Tate to see his former players and fellow coaches. The key to that team’s success, he said, went beyond their performance on the field. “My biggest memory is of the personalities of everybody connected to that team – the players, the coaches, the administration,” said Sizer. “Everybody really cared about each other. It was a joy to show up for work every day.” The celebration was dampened by the Tigers’ 43-7 loss to Western Brown. Bethel-Tate will try to regroup this week at East Clinton Friday, Oct. 1. Sizer hopes his 2000 championship team can help this year’s squad break out of it’s 1-4 slump. Although the Tigers have not had an above-.500 season since the 2000 team went 7-3, there is hope the program can get back to its winning ways soon. “It is important for the

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Levy will not raise taxes

Nov. 2, you can help provide significant support services to our most vulnerable citizens, children at serious risk and those neglected, abused and dependent children who have been removed from unsafe – even dangerous surroundings. The renewal of the .8-mill Children’s Protective Services Levy will continue to supply the needed funds to pay for these services without raising taxes. I have friends who are foster parents and have had the privilege of observing miracles occur as they provide the loving home and essential medical and therapeutic services necessary to give these children a chance of living healthy, happy, productive lives. None of the money raised by this levy pays for administrative costs or salaries, but it does purchase the services needed by these children. The funds provide intervention that has changed the

direction of children’s lives helping to reduce the need for later, more costly remediation. The 320 children in the custody of Children’s Protective Services and the nearly 5,000 children who received services last year are clear evidence of the need. I strongly encourage you to join me to Keep Our Children Safe and vote “yes” Tuesday, Nov. 2, for the CPS levy. Visit www.KeepClermontKidsSafe.com. Kathy Freudenberger Tate Township

Vote for children

I am currently working with several children who are in foster care for various reasons. The services provided for these children, parents, and foster parents are very important. Some children are able to return home because their families received counseling and parenting classes from Children’s Protective Services. Without these supportive

services, children placed into foster care might not receive all the help they need to support their various delay/developmental issues. This is why I am encouraging everyone to vote “yes” for Issue 5 Nov. 2. The levy does not increase taxes, it is a renewal for .8-mill. Every dollar goes directly toward the children who have been affected by abuse, and/or neglect. Visit www.keepclermontkidssafe.com. Nicole Patterson Clermont DD Early Intervention Specialist Felicity

Croswell for commissioner

As I travel Ohio as part of my job and as a board member of a regional organization, I am pleased at how many people complement Clermont County about how well the county has handled the difficult economic conditions of the past two years.

Wilson will use tax dollars effectively “A penny saved is a penny earned.” Those were words were first penned by Benjamin Franklin, but I think that sentiment still holds true today. In this economy people are trying to do more with less and being fiscally responsible is an absolute necessity. Government needs to be aware of the needs of the people they serve and use taxpayer dollars in the most effective ways possible. About 30 years ago, my partner and I began a small business here in Clermont County. Over the years, with hard work our business has grown. I want Clermont County to be a business-friendly community and I want to see new jobs for our residents. I believe this can be done with openness and integrity. Tax dollars need to be used to keep our communities safe. There needs to be consequences for crime and the entire jail should be available so people can serve out the sentences they are given for their crimes and not given house arrest just because there isn't room at the jail. People need to know that the communities they live in are safe places to raise their families. As I have traveled throughout the county I have had the opportunity to listen to

what is important to the residents who live here. I have found many people who share my beliefs of conservative, moral and fiscal values and I am energized by the growing number of people who are supporting me. Archie I want to make a differWilson ence in making this county than it is today for Community better our children and grandchilPress guest dren. columnist This November the voters of Clermont County will have the opportunity to make a change in county government. I believe that hard times require overtime and I am willing to put in the time necessary to get the job done. I am asking for your vote and your support in my bid for commissioner. If you have any questions please feel free to call me at 513-4030405. Archie Wilson is a candidate for Clermont County commissioner Nov. 2. He is a resident of Batavia Township and currently serves as a township trustee.

up in hospitals, shelters, in jail or dead. Mental illnesses are medical illnesses. One in four adults experiences a mental health problem in any given year. One in 17 lives with serious, chronic disorders. On average, people living with serious mental illness live 25 years less than the rest of the population. One reason is less than one-third of adults and less than one-half of children with a diagnosed illness receive treatment. Early identification and intervention result in better outcomes; treatment works, but only if a person can obtain it. Both people with existing illnesses and those, who face hard economic times may be experiencing anxiety or depression

Mike Brown Community Press guest columnist

Economic conditions such as these require the very best in our leadership. We are very fortunate to have qualified county leadership that have the strength and integrity to manage the financial minefield in the face of heavy political pressure, and who do not just talk about, but exhibit their dedication to fiscal conservatism. Scott Croswell has a long history of fiscal conservatism. Scott has demonstrated our values; worked

Last week while he was campaigning in Clermont County, I had the opportunity to talk with John Kasich about his plan to help turn things around in Ohio. As Kasich has been traveling around the state, he has been telling people that we need to create a climate more conducive to business relocation and job creation in Ohio. Kasich has repeatedly said that this can only be accomplished by balancing the budget and shrinking the size of government. I could not agree more with John Kasich. For the past eight years, I have had the honor and privilege of serving as your county commissioner. During that time, I have worked hard to promote the ideals of limited government, lower taxes and job creation through economic development. Like John Kasich, I believe that if we do not ensure Clermont County is a place where businesses want to locate and believe their companies will thrive, we will never see an increase in well paying and stable jobs. This is one of the reasons I led the fight to redevelop the old Ford Plant in Batavia to attract new jobs there. This is also one of the reasons I was not afraid to cut bureaucratic budgets during my time in office even though it meant I would not receive a political party endorsement. We must identify government waste, and when we see it we cannot be afraid to do the right thing and make the necessary cuts even if it impacts your own party leaders. Too often politicians place their allegiance to party leaders and special interests ahead of the people who elect them. I have

for the first time, and need access to treatment. Now, more than ever, we need to protect and strengthen state and local public mental health services.

JOURNAL

refused to do that in the past, and I will not do it in the future. When I first ran for commissioner, I told people that my campaign was about people – not politics. I still believe that today. If entrusted to return as your R. Scott county commissioner, I Croswell III pledge to continue to lead fight in balancing the Community the budget, cutting the size of Press guest government and making columnist sure the money you entrust to your county government is well spent. I will also make sure these cuts are done in such a way that we protect the vital services you have come to expect from your county government. Ensuring we continue to have one of the finest law enforcement agencies, making sure the needs of our seniors are taken care of, protecting our children and remembering the debt we owe to our veterans are all priorities. I don’t have to promise to voters that if elected I will be a fiscal conservative because I have an eight-year record to prove it. If re-elected as your county commissioner, I will continue to be a watch dog of your money and prevent it from being spent foolishly. R. Scott Croswell is a resident of Miami Township and has served as Clermont County Commissioner for the past eight years. He is seeking re-election Nov. 2.

CH@TROOM Last week’s question:

How far do you think the Reds will go in the playoffs? Why?

Next question Have you or someone you know been affected by bedbugs. What precautions are you taking? What solutions have you tried?

“My answer: first round. “Why? Because whenever I get enthusiastic about our teams, be it the Reds or Bengals, they lose. If I’m apathetic or pessimistic, it might help them.” B.B.

Every week The Bethel Journal asks readers a questions that they can reply to via e-mail. Send your answers to clermont@communitypress.com with “chatroom” in the subject line.

“Good pitching is the key to winning postseason baseball. It will have to come together strong for Reds pitching in October. “We need see strong outings by starting pitchers Arroyo, Cueto and Volquez. Further-

more, Cordero will pull it together and nail down some saves. “I am going to call Reds win the World Series in six games, at home. By the way, I made the same call in ‘90. I was off by two games!” D.M.

NAMI to host Wellness Walk Oct. 2 Do you have days when you just don’t want to get out of bed or you are too tired to do anything or you feel as if the whole world is against you? What if those feelings repeat themselves day after day after day with no end in sight? Then you would have a microimage of the world of those experiencing untreated mental illness. Mental Illness Awareness Week (MIAW), the week of Oct. 3 promotes public awareness and education about serious mental illnesses such as major depression, bipolar disorder and schizophrenia. MIAW is especially important this year as severe budget cuts threaten mental health services across the country, creating an unprecedented mental health crisis. The costs of cutting state mental health budgets are high – people who do not receive treatment end

Clermont County Sheriff hosts Top Dog Competition MARY DANNEMILLER/STAFF

Clermont County Sheriff’s Deputy Meredith Walsh and her dog, Arron, walk through the obedience portion of the Ohio Law Enforcement K9 Association Top Dog Competition at Amelia High School Saturday, Sept. 18.

The Clermont County Sheriff’s Office hosted the Ohio Law Enforcement K9 Association Top Dog Competition at Amelia High School Sept. 18. Eight teams of local police officers and their canine partners competed in narcotics, obedience and criminal apprehension. The teams came from the Warren County Sheriff’s Office, the Kettering Police Department, the Sharonville

Police Department, the Goshen Township Police Department, the Union Township Police Department and the Clermont County Sheriff’s Office. The title of Top Dog went to Warren County Sheriff Deputy Kelly Hammonds and his dog, Tango. Second place went to Kettering Police Officer Brad Lambert and his dog Brix, while Clermont County Sheriff Deputy Meredith Walsh and her dog, Arron,

took third place. “I was happy with how he did,” Walsh said. “All of the dogs in the competition performed well. They performed exactly how they were trained, but it’s about speed, too. The difference between placing and not placing came down to seconds.” Next year’s competition will be hosted by the Warren County Sheriff’s Office.

Amelia grad participates in D-Day jump, earns promotion Jennifer Skunza, a 1996 graduate from Amelia High School, was promoted to Sergeant First Class in the U.S. Army June 6. Her ceremony was not the typical Army celebration. The paratrooper was selected as part of an elite airborne team to represent her unit, the 412th Civil Affairs Battalion (Airborne), based in Columbus, Ohio, in the annual Normandy jump to celebrate D-Day. The promotion ceremony transpired in Sainte Mere Eglise, France, one day after she jumped into Normandy. Skunza made her historic jump out of a German C160 aircraft. The Normandy jump is an annual reunion, an

anniversary celebration. The event is a joint team effort: British, French, German and U.S. paratroopers jump to commemorate the D-Day anniversary. To be selected, Skunza was recommended by her battalion. She was screened among hundreds of interested paratroopers. The 360th Civil Affairs Brigade, Skunza’s higher headquarters, was given 10 slots. Skunza was given the nod over many interested applicants. As a member of the select few, Skunza savored her opportunity to go to England and France as a member of the U.S. Army Reserve. “She did such a great job, she was selected to be a member of the color guard

for some of the parades and processions,“ said 1st Sgt. Jeffrey Clewell, also a member of the 412th. The Normandy operation was not all training and preparation. The citizen soldiers had some free time to enjoy the small towns they visited. “France was great,” said Skunza. “The townspeople treated us very well. We were able to visit many small villages and interact with the locals.” The international teams traveled together. The common bond among military personnel – teamwork – is paramount. That solidarity was displayed in the small towns, and the French were glad for all the paratroopers’ par-

ticipation, even the Germans. All the soldiers are cognizant of World War II history. “The French citizens from around Normandy were glad the Germans participated, and we all came together for this event,” said Skunza. “The French citizens are very appreciative of America’s involvement and their rescues during WW II. The people study and are very cognizant of history and are grateful to the United States.” “The French citizens showed appreciation for all the members of the teams,” said Clewell. “Only a little animosity (was shown) toward the Germans from some of the older people, but

Skunza relishes her

jumps and being a paratrooper so much, she is taking her skills to the next level. She prepares to become an Airborne Jumpmaster in September at Fort Bragg, N.C.

Lytle is considered the father of Clermont County When the Harmony Hill Association celebrated the birthday of Major Gen. William Lytle Aug. 29, the photos of the event did not include information about Lytle’s contributions to Clermont County. The following information is from the Clermont County Historical Society. In 1791, William Lytle, 21, already had four years of Indian warfare under his belt, was learning the science of surveying and had begun a lucrative career in land speculation.

In the mid 1790s he acquired several hundred acres of land on the East Fork of the Little Miami River. In the winter of 17951796, William, with his brother John, platted a small town on the west bank of the river and named it “Lytlestown.” Not long after, when this new town was officially dedicated, the name was changed to Williamsburgh. When Clermont County was established by proclamation Dec. 6, 1800, William Lytle’s flourishing village was designated the seat of justice for the

new county. Williamsburg remained the county seat until 1824 when the courts were moved to Batavia. Due to Lytle’s efforts in promoting the settlement of the area that later became Clermont County, he is frequently referred to today as the “Father of Clermont County.” When the courts first convened at Williamsburg, William Lytle was commissioned the first clerk of courts. He held this position until Ohio’s admission as a state in March 1803. Lytle remained in

Williamsburg until 1809 when he moved to the rapidly growing “Queen City of the West,” Cincinnati. There, he built a home on the site of present-day Lytle Park, directly across Pike Street from today’s Taft Art Museum. By the time Lytle moved his family to Cincinnati, he had become a wealthy man from his many land deals and business ventures. He moved among the circles of the powerful and influential and, shortly after war erupted between

the U.S. and Great Britain in 1812, William Lytle was appointed a Major General of the Ohio Militia. He was thereafter known as “General Lytle” the remainder of his life. In 1829, he was appointed surveyor general of the public lands of Ohio, Indiana and Michigan by his friend President Andrew Jackson. Unfortunately, he did not enjoy this high position for very long. He died March 17, 1831, at age 61.

Empty churches, crowded pathways and loneliness Over most of my many years as a priest, when I offered Sunday Mass it was done in a crowded church. Sometimes only standing room. No longer is that so except for Christmas and Easter. The Cincinnati Enquirer (Sept. 19, 2010) carried a front page story about diminishing Mass attendance in Catholic churches. Except for non-denominational groups, many Christian churches are experiencing the same problem. More than one-quarter of American adults have left the faith of their childhood. So says the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life based on reviews with 35,000 adults. The people who are not at church on Sunday are not at home brooding over the church’s faults. They are sleeping, shopping at the mall, working in their yard, having team practices, jogging, walking, watching football or baseball, etc. They want the church to be there when they want it, even if they do not want it very often. These are not bad people. There is no conscious conspiracy against going to church, values and spiritu-

Father Lou Guntzelman Perspectives

a l i t y . What is happening is that a number of important factors have been happening over the last 50 years that h a v e brought us

to this point. Now it has become difficult not just to think about God or to pray, but to have any interior depth whatsoever. Father Ronald Rolheiser writes, “It is not that we have anything against God, depth and spirit, it is just that we are habitually too preoccupied to have any of these show up on our radar screens. We are more busy than bad, more distracted than nonspiritual, and more interested in the movie theater, the sports stadium, and the shopping mall and the fantasy life they produce than we are in church.” Besides this busyness and preoccupation, another significant factor that has “gotten to us” is individualism. After countless centuries, the modern world is

Fraud alert one way to prevent identity theft One of the most popular ways for criminals to steal your identity is to try to get a credit card in your name. If they succeed they can run up thousands of dollars in charges, and you may not find out until the thief has fled. Amy Winegardner of Wyoming suspected someone was trying to steal her identity when a financial company notified her about a credit card for which she had never applied. “I got a letter saying my husband and I had applied for a credit card and that we were declined. I would never had applied for one, and I’m like surprised,” she said. Winegardner was not only surprised but a little worried too about what such a credit application really means. “I think somebody got information on me and applied for a credit card and … but my credit’s not the best so it was declined – which was great,” she said. This is not the first time something like this has happened. “In 2008 there was (an unauthorized) withdrawal out of my checking account from a German file hosting company,” Winegardner said. I had Winegardner check her credit report on the Internet. She said she hadn’t checked it in quite a while. She needed to look for unusual things like unauthorized credit card applications and accounts. Winegardner checked and found nothing out of the ordinary. However, because someone did try to open a credit card in her name, she filed a fraud alert with the credit bureau. She says she never realized this was an action she could and should take.

“No, I d i d n ’ t until we were reading the ‘ requently a s k e d q u e s ions.’ Howard Ain tLike it Hey Howard! said, the initial alert is for 90 days and the extended one is for seven years.” You can place an extended fraud alert on your credit bureau report if you’ve been the victim of identity theft and provide the credit bureau with a police identity theft report. Fraud alerts prevent an identity thief from opening any accounts in your name. You only need to contact one of the three credit reporting companies to have an alert placed on all their reports. When a business sees the alert it must first verify your identity before issuing credit. Be advised, this may cause some delays if you apply for credit. You should check your credit report yearly and can do so for free at www.annualcreditreport.com. Howard Ain answers consumer complaints weekdays on WKRC-TV Local 12.

shifting from being ruled by the power of the mace and the miter. Now spiritual authority is seen as especially being held in the hands of the individual person and his or her conscience. “Habits of the Heart” is a successful book first published in the mid-1980s. One of its chief observations was the growing number of youth and adults who looked to themselves alone as the possessors of spiritual truth, not organized religion. As a result of this book, a study was done. One of the participants in the study was Sheila Larson, a young nurse. She expressed her idea of religion and spirituality thus: “I believe in God. I’m not a religious fanatic. I can’t remember the last time I went to church. My faith has carried me a long way. It’s Sheilaism. Just my own little voice.” So succinctly did she verbalize extreme individualism that ever since the name Sheilaism designates many who live their lives accordingly. The spirituality revolution that is going on assumes that the individual knows best. The idea is that

a person who is independent of organized religion and from centuries of religious indoctrination and tradition, becomes more free and truly spiritual. They bristle at authoritative approaches to their personal spirituality and relationship with God. Individualism usually leads to isolation and loneliness. It encourages us to think of ourselves as self-sufficient and self-enclosed. What is lost is a sense of communal togetherness,

support during stressful times of life and death, and the absence of fulfilling rituals of passage such as baptisms, weddings, funerals, etc. As the years go by and questions about life and death multiply, extreme individualists experience an increasing spiritual illiteracy. They lack a fuller and sustaining grasp of crucial beliefs such as baptism, the incarnation, resurrection, redemption, and an adult understanding of scripture. Authoritarianism and

poor education by church leaders, and individualism and lack of openness by church members, are the two things that will keep lessening the effectiveness of religion in our day. God’s Spirit is trying to lead us forward. Let’s not drag our feet. Father Lou Guntzelman is a Catholic priest of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati. Contact him at columns@ communitypress.com or P.O.

Tempt them with some homemade apple rollups Today’s the first day of autumn and even though the temperature is at an alltime high, it still feels like fall outside, what with the leaves falling from the trees and crinkling Rita underfoot, Heikenfeld and the Rita’s kitchen apples ripening on our tree. (We don’t have many apples this year, and I have to be vigilant about picking them before the deer find them). And I’ve had a slew of requests to make homemade applesauce and “fruit rollups like you buy but without all the artificial stuff.” I’m happy to say I can help on both counts!

Homemade applesauce, fruit rollups/leather

for making homemade applesauce, check out my blog at Cincinnati.com.

Preparation:

What: Ninth annual pink ribbon program and luncheon with Cat Cora. Where: Duke Energy Convention Center, downtown Cincinnati When: Monday, Oct. 4, at noon Details: Visit www.pinkribbonluncheon.org or call 1-866-577-7465.

Wash, core and cut 3 to 5 pounds of fruit into chunks (apples or pears). Leave skin on because the pectin in the peel helps remove cholesterol.

Cooking options:

Crockpot – Spray pot. Put fruit in. Cook on low for six to eight hours or high for three to five hours until fruit is soft enough to mash. Stovetop – Place in heavy or nonstick large pot. Add up to 1 cup water, cider or apple juice (to keep fruit from sticking), and simmer until fruit is soft. You may have to add a bit more liquid. Careful – the mixture tends to sputter up. Oven – (my preferred method). I use a restaurant steam table pan but use anything that has sides and which will hold fruit. Spray pan. Cook in 350-degree oven until soft.

To purée:

I make this from apples, but pears work well, too. Making your own lets you be in control of the amount of sugar, if any, you add. To see my online video

Pink Ribbon lunch

Run through food mill or sieve, blender or food processor. Or just chunk up with a potato masher. If desired, sweeten to taste with sugar or a substitute. I usually don’t add any

How to tell if leather is done:

It should pull up from the pan in one sheet.

Storing:

Drying to make fruit rollups/leather:

Spray cookie sheets. Pour puree evenly onto sheets, about 1⁄4-inch deep. I dry mine in the sun. (I’ll cover with cheesecloth if bees are a problem and bring it in at night or if it

rains). It takes about three days to make the rollups. You can also dry it in a warm oven. Mine only goes down to 170 so I prop the door open. You don’t want it to cook too quickly or it will be hard. It will take anywhere from four to eight hours or more depending upon the kind of apples, etc. If it’s late in the evening and it’s still not done, turn the oven off with the leather still in, and proceed in the morning.

Fishing is good this time of year Howdy folks, Last week we went to the Batavia Station Restaurant for the P.E.R.I. meeting. There was a nice crowd, but we need more people to be involved in this. This is the union for Public Employees Retirement Incorporated. This is something each state of Ohio retired workers needs to keep informed about how their retirement funds, which they have invested, are being handled. Ruth Ann and I went fishing last Friday morning and caught a fine bunch of crappie. They need to be 9 inches long. We cleaned 21 fine crappie 9 to 11 inches long. This bunch made four big packs for winter eating. Along with the fish there will be plenty of vegetables and of course cornbread. According to the R.F.D. television station there is wheat harvested someplace in this world every month of

the year. They showed a “spelt” grain that takes the place of wheat. I was talking to a feller about the corn head for the self-propelled combine. He said the item that really surprised him was a 40-foot bush hog that will fold up for road travel. There are folks in this country who can master problems and create big equipment like the one we saw that can pick up 10 round bales of hay and then drops one at a time. Our garden is doing good. The radishes are ready to eat, the spinach is doing good along with the broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower and green onions. We are so lucky so far the deer haven’t gotten into these vegetables. I had better “peck on wood.” There are different ways folks are using to keep deer out. A neighbor said he uses caution tape, the slight

little breeze will make the tape move and that seems to scare the deer so we are trying it. It looked like the weather was going to be cooler but today as I write this the temperature will be close to 90 degrees. Well it will get cooler sometime. Last Saturday Ruth Ann and I went up to the Ratliff’s for their shrimp harvest. This was the second Saturday. They have two ponds. The amount of frogs that were in the pond was probably in the dozens. There were some big ones but most were small. When the water came out into the stilling basin there

flow better. The water was better than knee deep. Their children like their parents are hard workers and don’t hesitate to get the job done. They are good farmers and their crops show it. The Kinners from the Riverside Coffee Mill in Batavia were there and when the kids saw the baby pigs Ethan said “I want one.” I imagine the folks in Batavia would be very thrilled as would his parents

Lunch will be prepared on the Manifold in Chilo “It’s really good and tastes just like we made it on our home grill,” said Bud Lung of Batavia, president of the NoKen Model-T Club. Members of the NoKen and Zane Trace Model-T Clubs will cook pork tenderloin, hot dogs, applesauce and maybe pastry on their car exhaust manifolds while driving to the Chilo Lock #34 Park Fall Back Into Time afternoon event Sunday, Oct. 10. “We will have to stop a

couple of times to check or turn the tenderloin on our drive to the park,” said Lung, who will be cruising to the event in his 1917 Model-T, a black touring car that can reach speeds of up to 45 miles an hour. A dozen Model-T and some Model-A cars will take part in the afternoon cruise-in celebrating the history of the county park system. “We invite everyone to come on out to the Chilo Lock #34 Park and see this unique

car manifold cooking demonstration around noon,” said Clermont Park District Director Chris Clingman. “This is the 85th anniversary of the Chilo Lock and Dam. At one in the afternoon on Saturday, Oct. 9, and Sunday, Oct. 10, we’ll have brief presentations on how the site went from a U.S. Army Corps of Engineers lock and dam to a park. There will also be naturalist-led walks around the park on those days.”

“It is a real stress buster to go driving in one of my antique cars,” said Lung who got involved in car collecting only five years ago and already has three Model-T cars and one Model-A car. “It’s just like those potato chips; no one can have just one. People are so friendly when they see you driving one of these cars. They wave and come up to you to talk about the history of the car.” Lung said that his 1917 car gets about 20 miles

per gallon of gas and yes, he does have to crank it to start it. “Having these historic cars here at the Chilo Park is a great way to celebrate the history of the parks,” said Clingman. For more information about the Fall Back Into Time events, contact the Clermont County Park District at (513) 876-9013 or visit www.parks.ClermontCountyOhio.gov.
