Bethel stops taping meetings By John Seney

BETHEL - In a cost-saving move, village council voted Sept. 26 to halt the recording of public meetings. “Local government funding (from the state) has been cut drastically,” said council member Donna Gunn, who made the proposal. Gunn said stopping the taping of meetings would save the village $600 through the rest of this year and $2,400 in 2012. “I know it’s a nice public service,” Gunn said. “Perhaps the newspaper could put the minutes of the meetings in the paper.” Council member Rus Whitley, who voted against the measure, suggested someone could be found to donate the cost of the taping. Greg Schuler of Bethel-Concord Road told council members ending

the taping was “a move away from transparency.” He said there was a big lag time between meetings and when the meeting minutes are posted on the village website. ”For people who want to know what’s going on, that’s important,” Schuler said. Residents have been able to view the recordings on public television or on DVDs from the public library. The recordings have been done by Jeff and Beth Pulliam of Happy Dog Productions in Batavia at a cost of $100 a meeting. Pulliam said he has been recording the Bethel meetings since 2006. The measure takes effect with the next meeting, which is Oct. 10. The Sept. 26 was the last meeting to be taped. For more about your community, visit

Village switches health care provider for employees By John Seney

BETHEL - Council members Sept. 26 voted to change the health insurance provider for village workers. Council member Donna Gunn said the switch would provide a big cost savings for the village. The current provider, Humana, costs the village about $7,000 a month, she said. The new provider, Assurant, would cost $4,628 a month. “We’re saving a good amount by switching,” she said. The insurance coverage renews Nov. 1. The measure to switch

carriers was passed as an emergency measure. Gunn said the quick passage allows employees to make any changes in coverage before the renewal date. Village Administrator Travis Dotson said employee premiums are paid in full by the village. The only cost to employee is the copay. “This allows us to keep the costs low,” Dotson said of the switch in carriers. Dotson said there will be no changes in coverage for employees.

for Autumn Bash. Brewer said many of the groups that sell food or host games at the festival are local non-profits or groups doing fundraisers. “We just hope that everyone will come out and support the board of trustees and the nonprofits who will be here,” she said. “We like to create an environment where family and friends can come together and enjoy each others company.

And, just as importantly donations are shared with their network of local affiliates to help provide life-saving education, screening and treatment programs at the community level. They look at the zip code where the donation originates, and share the donation with the Komen affiliate that services that area. If the donation comes from a zip code that isn’t serviced by a Komen affiliate, then the entire donation supports Komen’s research grant program. For more information about Susan G.

ATMs to go in Clermont Co. offices By Kellie Geist-May

CLERMONT CO. - Automated teller machines ATMs - are going to be installed in three county offices. The Clermont County commissioners approved a contact with Rain1 Solutions of Loveland for three ATMs one for the BMV in Batavia, one for the Common Pleas Clerk of Courts office in Batavia and one for the clerk’s title office in Milford. “We’ve been wanting an ATM for a while. We can’t take credit cards and there are many times when customers come to the BMV, they get the transaction taken care of, but they don’t have cash or a check to pay. This is just a matter of customer service,” Fraley said. Fraley said they also are hoping to get an ATM for Clermont County Clerk of Municipal Court Tim Rudd’s office in Batavia Township. The ATMs will be at no cost to the county, but customers will pay a $1.75 fee to make a withdraw. Common Pleas Clerk of Courts Barb Wiedenbein said they could have charged more and kept the additional revenue, but that wasn’t something she or Fraley were interested in. “We really just want to provide this service more than anything - times are bad enough as it is, so we didn’t want to charge an additional fee,” Wiedenbein said. “We have people who come in and they just don’t deal with cash anymore. Some even get upset that we don’t already have an ATM.” Clermont County Commissioner Ed Humphrey said getting ATMs in these offices has been on the radar for a while. “We’ve been looking at this for a long time, probably since I became a commissioner (in 2008.) This will allow people to pay their necessary bills more conveniently … I think this is an important service for the county,” he said. The contract for the ATMs will be from Oct. 1, 2011, through Sept. 30, 2014.

Moscow author publishes new book, ‘A Lost Star’ “A Lost Star,” a new book by Keisha Oberschlake, has been released by RoseDog Books. Oberschlake wrote this book because she feels children need more material that shows them, on their level, how to witness

other children. Children are the future of the church and need to be taught with love to be confident in their faith and outspoken about their beliefs. It is her hope that this book helps children march forward with

confidence. Oberschlake and her husband have four sons. The family lives in Moscow, Ohio, and attend a small country church in Point Isabel. She is 28 years old and is a

licensed beautician, but she now stays home to take care her children. Oberschlake reads her boys the Bible and teaches them Bible verses and gospel hymns. She realizes that it is important

for them to know as much as they can about God and to be able to praise Him in words and in song. “A Lost Star” is a 30-page paperback with a retail price of $16. For more information, visit

Extra Burke Trust scholarship awarded to Bethel graduate By John Seney

BETHEL - An extra Burke Trust scholarship has been awarded to a BethelTate High School graduate. The $1,000 scholarship was approved by village council Sept. 12 for Hayley Rose, who is attending the University of Virginia. Council member Janice Ireton said extra money was available in the Burke Trust scholarship fund this year because scholarship money was returned when students decided not to attend college as planned. “This year we were able to give one extra scholar-

ship,” she said. Ten scholarships usually are awarded each year. The scholarship to Rose means 11 students received scholarships this year. The scholarships are one-time awards for high school graduates. They are not renewable. Ireton said the scholarships usually go to Bethel-Tate students, but are open to graduates of other high schools. The scholarships are funded by the Burke Trust, left by Edmund Burke to be used for the village’s park, schools and other activities. For more about your community, visit

This is the beginning of getting them to think about careers and what they want to do when they grow up,” she said. “This is their introduction to the idea that you go to school to get a job and be part of the community.

Those lessons culminated in a couple of field trips in September. The kids went to the village’s municipal building, police department, fire department, post office and IGA grocery store. “They get to go behind the scenes and see how things are actually done,” Dennis said. “At the post office, they all buy a stamp and mail a letter home. At IGA, they get to go in the back and see how the produce comes in and is washed. They talk to the butcher. Everyone is really helpful.” This year the students also met a few representatives from the Ohio Depart-

For the fire department, the visit is part of continuing fire safety education. “We go the school to meet with the kindergartners and first-graders, but this gives them a little hands on. They get to work a fire hose and see all the equipment,” Stowell said. “Of course then we take them back to school on the fire truck - they love that.” Dennis said they hope to continue this annual handson education. “It’s a great program and I’m really thankful for all the workers who take the time to share their jobs with the kids.

Karen Cornelison said the kids she’s talked to are excited about the class. “The kids are so looking forward to it - both boys and girls.

The preschoolage classes will be at 3 p.m. and the school-aged classes will start at 4 p.m. every Wednesday. “We really want this to be something any of Felicity’s kids can join, not just the kids at Precious Resources,” Karen Cornelison said. “Other than school sports and activities, there’s not much out here for (children) to be involved in.” Hills said the tap and ballet classes will help children develop their large motor skills while teaching them some basic life lessons. “Dance really helps build self-confidence and concentration as well as language, listening and math skills.

In Mary Ann Dillon’s kindergarten classroom at William Bick Primary, students go from knowing the alphabet to learning how to write. In a recent class, they learned about the letter “T.” Students sang a song about the “T” sound, made “Ts” with Play-Doh, found pictures with the “T” sound, colored pictures that start with “T” and traced capital and lowercase “Ts.”

Bethel-Tate High School’s Sydney Kilgore (6) dribbles through Amelia senior Mandi Robinson on Sept. 28 at Amelia. The Lady Barons got the win over the Lady Tigers 2-0.

BETHEL - Going into October, the Bethel-Tate Lady Tigers soccer team finds itself in an odd situation. They’re around the middle of the pack in terms of overall record, yet they’ve struggled in league games. “We’re getting much better team play,” coach Brenda Woodward said. “We just need to put it in the net.” Taylor Atkins, Morgan Calhoun, Andi Lanigan and Alyssa Weiss have all put it in the net at different times. The problem lies in their frequency. “We’ve had a lot of different scoring opportunities,” Woodward said. “Just not enough of them. We’re not giving many goals up; we just need to put more in. I’m starting to see a lot more shooting around goal and a lot better shot selection.” None of Bethel-Tate’s losses have been blowouts. That’s even with playing freshmen Morgan Walters and Allison Poe in goal. The youth will pay off in years to come, but this season has had its growing pains. “Inexperience has cost us,” Woodward said. “It’s a learning experience. It’s tough to have a freshman in the goalie box playing at a high level.” Woodward credits some of the close scores to BethelTate’s defenders surrounding Walters and Poe. “Our defenders are doing good,” Woodward said. “I’ve got a freshman sweeper, Brooke Jenike, she’s really stepped up. She’s got a lot

That helps.” Miranda Anter has also come along defensively, while junior Alex Shinkle has moved around and contributed. “She’s played midfield, to sweeper, to all the way up at forward,” Woodward said. “She’s a big part to helping things.” Woodward also points to Sydney Kilgore at midfield for significant minutes after being out of the sport for

awhile. A school the size of Bethel-Tate also must deal with multi-sport athletes. Currently, Calhoun, Brittany Fischer and Lanigan are all running cross country in addition to chasing the soccer ball. “It’s been working out pretty good,” Woodward said. “We’ve kind of worked everybody’s schedule to accommodate everybody’s schedule.”

All three Lady Tigers are faring well in cross country, usually finishing in the top tier of runners in most meets. In soccer, the trio and their teammates are next home Oct. 11 with Goshen. Prior to that, they play at Western Brown Oct. 7. For more sports coverage, visit preps, preps or Scott on Twitter at @cpscottspringer.

McNicholas golf wins sectional title Gannett News Service The McNicholas High School girls golf squad captured a Division II sectional title with a team score of 419 at Hamilton Elks, Sept. 27. Senior Allison Hickman led the Rockets by posting an 86 (44-42), which was two stokes off the medalist pace set by Indian Hill’s Pari Kellye. The top four teams and top four individuals not on qualifying teams earned berths in the district tournament at Pipestone Golf Club in Miamisburg, Oct. 5.

Willy Corbett, in his ninth year as McNicholas’ coach, is familiar with the winning formula for Division II and saw it play out with Allison Hickman’s 86, a (49-48) 97 by her sophomore sister Sarah, a 101 by junior Lauren Lamping and a 135 by sophomore Riley Whiteside. “I’m very pleased,” he said. “If you can get a girl in the 80s, another one in the 90s and another in the low 100s, you’ve got a chance in Division II. I think the key was Riley at No. 4. She hung in there and didn’t give up. She’s a competitive girl.”

Just as the sectional was moved from Fairfield, so the district was moved from Heatherwoode in Springboro to a course with which Corbett and the Rockets – along with many of the other local teams – are unfamiliar. The top three teams and top three individuals not on qualifying teams move on to the state tournament. “I know there are two teams up there who are way better than us,” said Corbett, whose team missed qualifying for state last year by eight strokes. “Anything’s possible.”

Vote for senior services

I have never felt quite so personally involved in voting than I am this year. Nov. 8 is extremely important. I was unaware of Clermont Senior Services until I needed help. I contacted them and my life got better. If we do the right thing, we can breathe easier for the next five years knowing the services provided by Clermont Senior Services will continue. In every aspect, the services are provided with courtesy, friendliness, professionalism and understanding. I am very grateful to them. The bus service is most appreciated and sorely needed by many seniors. The professional staff at Clermont Senior Services listens to seniors, knows their needs and offers help when needed. Their kindness has often taught us to not be so uppity about asking for help, and their workers help us accept whatever assistance we need with grace and appreciation. God bless them all, learning to ask for and accept help is, in itself, a gift for which I am grateful. My children see I am much less stressed, more energetic and happier for each day. Please vote, because we owe it to each other and to ourselves. I’m praying the services will continue at Clermont Senior Services. Rose Adkins Milford

CSS is the best thing

Clermont Senior Services is the best thing that ever happened to me. I would not be able to stay in my own home if it wasn’t for senior services and the help they provide. I’m so much more comfortable in my own surroundings than a nursing home. I want to stay as independent as possible. That’s where senior services comes in. They take me to my doctor appointments. They sent a handyman to put up grab bars. A wonderful lady comes to help me with personal needs, laundry and other household chores. We’ve become friends and I look forward to seeing her. This has been a godsend to me. Please vote for the senior services levy Nov. 8. Joyce Anderson Pierce Township

We understand service, belt-tightening

When you’ve tightened your belt as much as you think you possibly can and you realize it is not enough, what do you do? You take a deep breath and tighten it again. This is what we have been doing at Clermont Senior Services for the last few years. Space does not permit a detailed accounting of the austerity measures we have taken, but the numbers tell the story. Expenses declined from 2008 to 2009, declined again in 2010, and are on track to further decline in 2011. As revenues have also declined during this period, we remained firmly committed to not spending money we did not have. Sound stewardship in the use of the dollars entrusted to us is a responsi-

bility we take seriously. Programs have been meticulously reviewed and optimized allowing us to maintain and, in some cases, Tom Rocklin even expand Community services. We now face Press guest a formidable columnist challenge. The current senior services levy, which represents nearly 80 percent of our funding, will expire at the end of 2011. The five-year levy must be on the ballot in November to continue funding from 2012 through 2016. The citizens of Clermont County have

consistently supported this fiveyear levy cycle. However, some may not be aware that, if the senior services levy does not pass, funding will cease for Meals-onWheels, medical transportation and other vital services that help older adults continue to live at home. The only alternative for many would be Medicaid-funded nursing home care, which is more costly for all taxpayers. Our board of trustees has requested that the board of county commissioners place a 1.3-mill renewal levy on the November ballot. A renewal levy will not increase taxes for the citizens of Clermont County. Significant financial risks lie ahead, such as rising gasoline prices. The uncertain and pro-

longed downturn in the economy requires that we deliberately and carefully manage what we have, just as struggling families throughout Clermont County must do. We cannot predict that waiting lists may not be necessary at some point in the future. But be assured, “Service with Heart” is our cornerstone, and we remain unwavering in our resolve to provide high quality, cost effective services that make a difference in the lives of those we serve - just as we have done for the past 40 years. Please, join your neighbors and me. Vote for Issue 13, the senior services levy, on Nov. 8. Tom Rocklin is a Clermont Senior Services Chair Emeritus and a Miami Township Resident

Retired teachers: Vote ‘no’ on Issue 2 We chose teaching careers knowing full well that it was not considered a high paying job. None of us went into the profession because of money. Teaching has never made anyone rich. We believe the same is true of the public employees who are still in the workforce and who are currently under attack. That is why it is so unbelievable that teachers, school bus drivers, cafeteria workers as well as nurses, firemen and policemen would be blamed for our current economic situation because of their “unearned high salaries and unreasonable health benefits.” That is exactly what the supporters of Issue 2 would lead you to believe. “Spending has gotten out of control. Local governments can’t make ends meet. Therefore, let’s make the public servants pay.” Let’s do a reality check, please. These public servants are responsible for

protecting you and saving your home, taking care of you when you are ill, and seeing that your children are educated, transported to school Jan as well as being Schoellman fed. Does the not Community government think that these Press guest people are also columnist suffering in this economic climate? They pay taxes, too. They pay high fuel costs for heating their homes and getting to work each day just like everyone else. Yet because they are in the public sector, Senate Bill 5 was passed to make these homeowners and families sacrifice even more than they already do. Proponents of Issue 2 say that all they want is for public employ-

ees pay 10 percent of their own retirement plan. The truth? Ninety-eight percent of public employees already do. What Issue 2 really does is take away freedoms and attain more government control over that segment of the public control their lives. Any rights and/or benefits that public employees now have were hard earned though the process of collective bargaining which is a give and take process. To get better healthcare, something else - usually salary - was sacrificed. Senate Bill 5 takes some of those negotiated items off the table. Healthcare - gone. Longevity salary raises - gone. Some retirement benefits - gone. Why did our legislature feel that taking away the rights of public employees and limit collective bargaining in the future was the way to save money? We believe the answer to that question is that public employees

make up one of the largest (if not the largest) labor forces in the state. Obviously millions of dollars can be saved by reaching into the employee pockets and robbing them of their livelihood. But is that fair? Is that the right thing to do? We say it is neither fair nor right. We may be senior citizens, old fogies, geezers, and perhaps dinosaurs. We were your teachers when you were growing up. You trusted us and followed our advice. Please do so now. The Clermont County Retired Teachers Association passed a motion at their last meeting to urge everyone to vote “no” on Issue 2 this November. We urge you to do so as well. In fact, we are making it your homework assignment. Jan Schoellman is a member of the Clermont County Retired Teachers Association and lives in Wayne Township. She taught for 30 years in the Goshen Local School District.

Do you agree with the decision of state officials to move Ohio’s 2012 primary election from Super Tuesday in March, to May? Why or why not? “Who knows? Every state wants to position their primary to be important. But no one can foresee which date will be the deciding one. “A few years ago Ohio moved up its primary to become more

AC Lockdown owners Mary and Russell Durbin pose inside one of the cages they build and sell from their Tate Township farm. It's designed to protect AC units from copper thieves.

Tate Township couple builds air conditioning cages to wards off thieves By Lisa J. Mauch

Tate Twp. - For most people, having thieves steal their property is a traumatic experience. For Mary and Russell Durbin it was a motivation. In December, the air conditioning unit outside a home they had bought to renovate and sell was stolen. So the couple came up with a new business idea – steel cages to keep metal thieves at bay. And that’s how AC Lockdown Security was born. The Durbins sold their first cage this spring. Since then business has been growing as the number of AC thefts continues to rise. “You have no idea of the stories we hear,” said Mary. “It’s out of control and it’s not stopping anytime soon. Every single day we hear of someone else being robbed.” Oddly enough, a house in foreclosure that abuts the Durbins’ property was in the process of being robbed when Mary and Russell noticed an out-of-place car there. They came across a man and a woman breaking in and taking the AC unit. Russell, a former Pierce Township police officer, detained them until the police could arrive. “It’s just another example of how it’s happening everywhere,” said Russell. The Neville Freewill Baptist Church also had its AC unit stolen in December. It cost the church $4,000 to replace.

He took a lot of care to design it to make it service friendly,” he said. The cages are built out at the Durbins’ farm in Tate Township from welded oneand-a-quarter-inch tube steel with a tamper-proof lock encased in heavy steel. The standard cage size is 40-by-40 inches. Custom sizes – and colors – are available. Prices start at $795 for a standard cage. Payment plans are available. AC Lockdown Security also handles the installation and the cages are anchored in 12 to 18 inches of concrete. “Once he puts his cage in it’s impossible to steal that unit … unless you have a key,” said Daniel. “It’s a very good investment.

CNC’s Krippendorf estate listed on National Register of Historic Places By Kellie Geist-May

UNION TWP. - The Krippendorf estate, at the heart of the Cincinnati Nature Center’s Rowe Woods, has been added to the National Register of Historic Places. The announcement came this summer after an application was written and submitted by nature center historian Jane Stotts and local historical preservation specialist Beth Sullebarger. “This all started when Bill Hopple (CNC executive director) and I were walking up the path to the lodge. We started talking about the possibility of nominating the property for the register because the lodge is so historic. He asked me if I would be interested in doing that and, I said I would,” Stotts said. The addition of the Krippendorf estate to the National Register of Historic Places is unique because it not only includes the lodge, but also Carl Krippendorf’s original 175 acres, all the original buildings on those 175 acres and even the land itself. “We have a wonderful history here – even in the land,” Stotts said. “Through our research we found that 60 percent of what Carl Krippendorf planted is still here.” Those plants range from the English gardens on the property to the daffodils visitors flock to the nature center to see each spring, said Kristi Masterson, marketing and membership manager for the Cincinnati Nature Center. “CNC nominated the entire Krippendorf Estate rather than just the building … our nomination recognized the unique landscape as well as the Krippendorf Lodge - very few listings include the landscape,” Hopple said. Carl Krippendorf came to Clermont County in 1875 after coming down with typhoid fever at 8 years old. The doctors told him to move to the country. “His father put an ad in the newspaper and Dr. Spence (from Perintown) told him to send the boy here. Young Carl found his paradise here in the woods,” Stotts said. Carl Krippendorf started building his lodge in 1898 and he and his new wife, Mary, spent their honeymoon there in 1900. Throughout the years, Krippendorf - the son of a successful shoe businessman - added a water tower, maids cottage, ice house, a garage and even Clermont County’s first swimming pool. Krippendorf had a lavish home, but his real love was nature. While the Cincinnati Nature Center is committed to preservation, Krippendorf spent his days working on landscaping. Even


The Krippendorf Lodge, 175 acres and original buildings have been added to the National Register of Historic Places. The lodge and grounds are part of the Cincinnati Nature Center in Union Township.


Carl Krippendorf planted daffodil bulbs, his favorite flower, all around the lodge. This picture was taken near 1905. The daffodils are now one of the things that make the Cincinnati Nature Center famous.


Carl Krippendorf, the son of a German immigrant and successful shoe businessman, built the Krippendorf Lodge between 1898 and 1900. He also did much of the estate’s landscaping. After Krippendorf died in 1964, the estate became the Cincinnati Nature Center, which opened in 1967. today, visitors can walk Krippendorf’s original trails, see his stone and plant walls and visit his English herb garden, Stotts said. “He did have landscapers, but Carl did a lot of the work himself. He was always outside. This was his place of wellness,” Stotts said. After Krippendorf died in 1964, lifelong friend and “Naturalist Afield” columnist Karl Maslowski met with Stanley M. Rowe Sr. and Krippendorf’s daughter Rosan Krippendorf Adams. They convinced Adams to sell the property so it could be used as a nature center. In 1967, the Cincinnati Nature Cen-

ter opened. While Rowe Woods has grown to more than 1,000 acres and the Cincinnati Nature Center’s Long Branch Farm encompasses about 600 acres, the organization is still very committed to their history. “Being on the national register is our chance to recognize our efforts for preserving this land and the buildings. This property has an important history,” Masterson said. Stotts wanted to thank Sullebarger, Mary Clark Stambaugh, Ric Snodgrass, Bill Creasey and Doug Kinslow for their help on the project. To be eligible to qualify for the national register, a structure must be more than 50 years old and either be historically significant, have an association with the lives of historically significant people, have architectural merit or have the potential to yield archaeologically important information. The Cincinnati Nature Center’s application was reviewed by the Ohio Historic Site Preservation Advisory Board and the National Park Service. For more about your community, visit

A nice, slow way to a very good crockpot roast Every spring and fall, I check my pantry herbs and spices. Since this time of year many of them go on sale, it’s a good idea to do the “sniff” test and check which ones need replacing. Check out my blog at (Cooking with Rita) for a video on how to buy and store dry herbs and spices. You’ll love my tip about putting an “open” date on the container.

Lottie’s easy crockpot pot roast

Lottie Hilgefort is my daughter-in-law, Jess’, sister and typical of a very busy mom. You may recognize this recipe as I’ve shared my version in the past. After making Lottie’s today, hers is my new “go to” pot roast. It’s that good. Lottie said: “ I adapted this from different recipes I liked until I came to perfection. It is so delicious and moist. I always serve with mashed potatoes, as you have lots of delicious gravy.” 3-4 lb. roast (whatever looks good and is on sale) 1 envelope beefy-onion dry soup mix 1 can cream of mushroom soup 1 soup can good red wine 3 tablespoons flour 2 beef bouillon cubes Place roast in sprayed crockpot. Mix remaining

ingredients and pour over. Cook on low eight to 10 hours.

from a reader who said she’d made this in her gas oven, but when she baked the pie in her electric oven, the bag caught fire. I have made it in my electric oven with no problem, but ovens and paper varies, and I’m glad she shared this information. To be cautious, make a “bag” out of parchment paper, which is totally oven proof.

Rita Dutch Heikenfeld apple pie Rita’s kitchen jam

T h i s would be great with a pork roast, or as a breakfast jam. And I’ll bet you could melt this with some apple cider or apple juice and make a terrific topping for ice cream and cake. Make it while apples are in season. 4 cups prepared fruit (about 1 pound Granny Smith or other tart green apples, 1⁄2 cup raisins and 11⁄4 cups water) 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice 1 teaspoon or so cinnamon 1 ⁄4 teaspoon allspice 1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar 4 cups granulated sugar 1 box dry pectin Peel, core and grind or finely chop fruit. Add raisins and water. Measure 4 total cups into large pot. Stir in lemon juice, cinnamon and allspice. Stir pectin into fruit. Bring mixture to full rolling boil on high heat, stirring constantly. Quickly stir in both sugars. Return to full rolling boil and boil exactly one

Tips from Rita’s kitchen

minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and skim off foam. Ladle quickly into sterilized, hot jelly jars and wipe rims and threads. Seal. Process in a water bath for five minutes. This makes the jam shelfstable. You can also simply cook up the jam without putting in a water bath, and store in the refrigerator up to three months or in the freezer up to nine months.

Tips from readers

Crystal chili update. From Terry, who said the recipe died with the last surviving family member of the restaurant “a few months ago.” Terry said he makes one close to Crystal’s and I hope he’ll be willing to share it with us for Connie, who requested this heirloom favorite. Thirty-minute veggie soup updated with kale and corn. Marsha Barker made

Northern Kentucky University Alumni Association and Fidelity Investments


my recipe but substituted kale (added it at the beginning of cooking time) and also some fresh corn from the cob. “Everyone raved,” she said. Granola bar nutrition. Lois Daley made the granola bar recipe I put in the paper recently and everyone loved them, but she wanted to know if I could provide nutritional information. I don’t have software, or really, the background, to do this. Paper bag apple pie recipe possibly not suited for some ovens. I got a call

Homemade produce wash for apples and other hard-skinned fruit. For the reader who called and said she quit eating apples because of the pesticides, etc. on them. I know you can buy produce sprays, but try this easy one: equal amounts of clear vinegar and water in a spray bottle. Spray apples and let sit a minute. Rinse well. The vinegar helps remove pesticides and toxins.

Can you help?

Zuppa Toscana like Olive Garden’s. Wow, our readers sure like the paper.

Ole’ Fisherman met Ruth Ann in her father’s store Howdy folks, I have been writing some about my dad and mom, well, here is some about Ruth Ann’s folks. Her dad was a farmer at Dodsonville in Highland County, then a lumber salesman. He retired as a Clermont County building inspector and a good one. The builders were always glad to see him. Her dad also had a hardware store in Newtonsville. Ruth Ann and her mother also worked in the hardware store. There was an elderly lady that came in each day for a creamscycle ice cream bar. Her dad kept ice cream bars I think just for this lady of course he sold to other people. Her mother was a homemaker, after Ruth Ann was in high school her mom worked in the Newtonsville Post Office. The hardware store is where I met Ruth Ann Mattox and love grew from that time. Now with two daughters, two sons-in-law, four grandchildren, one grandson-in-law and a great granddaughter that meeting in the hardware store was great. I thank the Good Lord for that. We finally got to go fish-

ing and caught some fine crappie. Last Monday afternoon we got out after the rain. George cleaned 10I Rooks big crappie 22 Ole and Fisherman b l u e g i l l s . The filet on the bluegills are not big but it is so good. Ruth Ann put the fish filets in four bags, 10 crappie filets in each bag and 11 bluegills in each of two bags. The Grants Farm and Green Houses have some beautiful pumpkins, Indian corn, mums, cut fodder and sugar corn along with other items to sell. Now writing I’m about them having mums, but they have no dads. Ha Ha. Last Sunday the homecoming at the old Bethel M.E. Church here at East Fork was held. This was the biggest crowd we have ever had with over 90 people. The music was provided by the Kinner Express. There were nine people in the group that furnished the music. They played and sang the well known songs

and the crowd really enjoyed singing along with them. Then we had the great historian Rick Crawford tell some of the history of the area. After the program there were cookies and drinks on the lawn and folks sure enjoyed visiting with each other and reminiscing about old times. The work on the belfry is to begin next week. It will be good to get it repaired and back in order. The fishing here at East Fork is good with lots of big crappie. The crappie tournament that The Boars Head Bait Shop in Afton held last Sunday had these results: The winner with seven crappie, weighed almost 7 pounds, second place was 6.5 pounds. There were 20 boats in the tournament. The bait shop that Mike operates does a great job and he runs a good crappie tournament. His bait shop is well known. The deer season for bow hunting came in Sept. 24 this year. They can be checked in online. Mike has helped several folks so far. The garden is still producing. The zucchini are going good, the tomatoes

are still ripening, the lettuce and spinach we planted is sure doing good. The green beans are about ready to be picked. Of course the deer have been sampling them that were around the outside of the fence. The first time we got to go fishing, when we came home with the pontoon, the cat, “Richoette,” remembered last year the boat held fish so he was ready. It is amazing how they remember these things. He kept meowing and following me as I got ready to get the fish out of the live well on the boat. Ruth Ann had a pan of water and filet knife ready so as I went to the cleaning table the cat kept me company and ate lots of the rib cages I cut out of the fish. The cat, “Dixie,” that we have had was 17 years old, was blind and partially deaf, he died last week. We sure miss him. He was so loving. By the way Ruth Ann’s leg is healing up fine. She caught the biggest crappie. Start your week by going to the house of worship of your choice and praise the Good Lord. God bless all. More later. George Rooks is a retired

Recycle computers Oct. 8 Clermont County citizens are invited to take advantage of a free computer recycling event Saturday, Oct. 8, at the UC Clermont Campus, South 1 Lot, in Batavia. The event runs from 9 a.m. through 1 p.m. Computers, monitors (CRTs and LCDs), printers, keyboards, networking equipment, speakers, scanners, external hard drives, laptops, servers, cables, towers and internal video cards will be accepted for recycling. Televisions cannot be accepted at this event. “Recycling computers is a great alternative to simply tossing old computers in the trash, which can result in the buildup of toxic metals in local landfills,” said Clermont Office of Environmen-

tal Quality Program Manager Hannah Gonzalez. “The copper, steel, and plastic found in electronics are valuable commodities which can be recycled into new products, thereby decreasing the consumption of natural resources.” Many computers can be reused. They will be refurbished and donated to schools and the elderly. The

hard drives will be stripped, so none of your personal information will be accessed. The Cincinnati Computer Cooperative (C3), a nonprofit organization, is coordinating the event. C3 partners with local businesses and individual donors to offer computer recycling and reuse programs across the Greater Cincinnati area. Businesses that are interested in donating during the Oct. 8 event can contact Daniel Meek, C3 program coordinator, at 771-3262 or email to schedule an individual pickup or drop off. For more information about the event, call the Adams-Clermont Solid Waste District at 732-7894.

Felicity Scouts plant ‘Pinwheels of Peace’ students to express their feelings about what’s going on in the world and in their lives. In the first year, groups in more than 1,325 locations throughout the world were spinning pinwheels Sept. 21. About 500,000 pinwheels were spinning throughout the world. Last year (year six), 2010, more than 3.5-million pinwheels were spinning in more than 3,500 locations, including the United States, Europe, Asia, Australia, Canada, the Middle East, Africa and South America. Locally, Felicity Girl Scout Troops 41282 and 42522 coordinated the Pinwheels for Peace project this year with 100 pinwheels on display in South Park in Felicity.
