Grow Bethel by attacking taste buds? Business owners suggest restaurants

By Keith BieryGolick

“We have a drug problem in this town,” said Bethel Mayor Alan Ausman. If the upcoming tax-hike proposal for the police department doesn’t pass, the department will be left without enough resources to combat the problem, he said.PATRICK REDDY/STAFF

Mayor: Tax hike will cure Bethel’s drug problems By Keith BieryGolick

BETHEL — Drugs are a problem in Bethel, according to Mayor Alan Ausman. And without the help of a tax hike for the police department there is little village officials can do about it, he said. “The reason drug dealers move here is because they know we don’t have the resources,” Ausman said. Ausman recently spoke to the Bethel Business Association about the importance of a 4-mill tax-hike issue that will be on the Nov. 5 ballot. “For so many years our department was woefully underfunded,” Ausman said. “I still think it’s understaffed.” Most of the time there is only one officer on duty each shift, he said. “We have a drug problem in this town,” Ausman said. “That’s hard to address with only one officer on duty.” Ausman spoke to an officer recently who knows every drug dealer in Bethel by name – plus where they live and what they sell – but doesn’t have the resources to stop them. But a property tax increase

isn’t the best way to thwart drug dealers, said Joe Carlotta, a member of the Bethel Business Association. There is nothing in the village to help addicts kick their habits, Carlotta said. “That should be the first step,” he said. “The dealers wouldn’t move here if there weren’t users.” Ultimately, the village needs more police – but the funding isn’t there right now, Ausman said. Bethel does not have a 1 percent income tax to generate money like other communities do, he said. “We paid $30,000 on 911 fees last year to the county. It’s staggering,” Ausman said. In addition, the police department is sustained through the village’s general fund, which does not receive as much money from the state as it used to receive. “We are making it right now, but what’s suffering is this,” Ausman said, referring to the Grant Memorial Building and other public spaces such as Burke Park. That’s why officials placed a Burke Park tax-hike issue on the ballot last year – but it was defeated by voters.

The police department uses about 70 percent of the village’s general fund, Ausman said. “No one wants to hear this, but I’ve been working on increasing citations,” he said. “We’re not talking about quotas, we’re talking about safety.” A study conducted by the police chief and mayor showed

Bethel officers write one citation every 18 hours – less than one a shift, he said. “Our officers are too busy (to write tickets),” Ausman said. If the tax-hike issue is approved, residents who own a home with a market value of $50,000 will pay an additional $70 per year in taxes. Residents who own a $100,000 home will pay an additional $140 per year in taxes if the issue passes. Residents who own a $150,000 home will pay an additional $210 per year in taxes if the issue passes. The proposed 4-mill police tax levy is expected to generate about $123,289 a year for the village, according to information prepared by the Clermont County Auditor’s Office. If approved, that tax levy would add to the current 2.9mill police tax levy that expires in 2015, which generates about $89,384 per year. “There would be two collection years that both of these levies will be collected,” said Chuck Tilbury, chief deputy auditor for Clermont County.

BETHEL — About 2,711 people live in Bethel, according the the 2010 Census. Some members of the Bethel Business Association said the best way to increase that number is simple: Attack the taste buds. Joe Carlotta, a Bethel Business Association member, said a good restaurant often acts as a gateway to other establishments in the community. “Between Bob Evans (in AmeAusman lia) and Georgetown, what is there?” he asked at a recent business association meeting. “It’s pretty sad when the high-end restaurant (in town) is Frisch’s,” said But before anyone got the wrong idea Carlotta specified what he meant by high-end restaurant. “I’m not talking about a place where you wear a formal gown or anything. I’m talking about a Cracker Barrel,” he said. “I would love to have a White Castle.” Gloria Canter, vice-president of the association, said a quality restaurant would provide a boost to the community. “I agree 100 percent. I don’t see it (happening) immediately, but maybe in the future,” she said. “We’ll try to work on it.” Although no one said they wouldn’t support a restaurant the discussion quickly turned into why it won’t happen any time soon. A high-end restaurant will most likely need to obtain a liquor license to maximize its potential. That can get expensive. “You’re looking at $1 million plus for something like that,” said Lou Ann Oberschlake, the association’s secretary. Oberschlake said she is trying to obtain a license to sell alcohol at her family’s Hamersville golf course. It is proving difficult. Business owners will look at a lot of information and different studies before committing to a location – a lot of the time, that information doesn’t flatter Bethel, Oberschlake said. Then, factor in the need for most high-end restaurants to obtain a liquor license and it’s a vicious cycle for a small town trying to grow. Carlotta said he didn’t need alcohol to enjoy a restaurant. “I agree with you,” said Alan Ausman, village mayor. “But most people want to have a glass of wine with dinner.”

parade, but no youths gave their lives for a Mars Bar. While the candy thrown from floats and fire engines and politicians’ cars ended up in the hands of children, most of it first was caught or picked up off the streets

by parents and older siblings. It was a victory for community members who convinced Bethel officials to reverse a ban on throwing candy to children along the parade route Oct. 4.

Village officials feared the practice of tossing sweets onto state Route 125 amounted to little more than an invitation for children to dive under the wheels of vehicles for colorfully packaged chocolate and suckers. Bethel officials backed off the ban, but asked Bethel-Tate Local Schools officials to keep the parade slow and reiterated their preference that the candy be handed out. There was some of that at the homecoming parade – principally by politicians who used the opportunity to chat up the adult electorate along the route. But most of the candy distributed was thrown, and most of that was collected by adults for the children. Jeffrey Benevengo of Bethel stretched his blue T-shirt into a soft pouch and loaded it with candy for his 5-year-old son, Payton, who waited near the sidewalk with his mother, Sarah. “Some friends of ours, their little boy was killed in Batavia two weeks ago,” said Sarah Benevengo. “He got run over by a car. “So we’re going into the road to get candy for (Payton),” she said. Payton said his dad did a good job. “We did better in the parade than we did at Halloween trick-or-treat,” Jeffrey Benevengo said. Bethel Patrolman Jeff Terry said there were no problems at the parade. “We saw a lot of parents taking care of their children,” Terry said.

County locks in energy prices By Leah Fightmaster

Clermont County knows how much electric and natural gas supply will cost for county facilities during the next three years. County commissioners recently approved an agreement with BidURenergy Inc. that locks in a price of about 4.54 cents per kilowatt hour, which was the lowest bid provided by Direct Energy. That price will be locked in for three years starting with meter readings in January of 2014. The cost is a decrease from previous years, which was about 4.70 cents per kilowatt hour, said Sukie Scheetz, director of the office of management and budget for the county. Direct Energy is the county’s current energy supplier. Although the commissioners could request new bids each year, there’s a fee, and Scheetz said rates might increase.

Engineers respond to road plan opponents By Jeanne Houck

NEWTOWN — County engineers shepherding the “Eastern Corridor Program” want to help – not hurt – communities that may be affected if any part of the comprehensive transportation proposal is approved. That’s according to Hamilton County Engineer Ted Hubbard, who spoke to the Community Press after he and Clermont County Engineer Pat Manger emailed members of a Newtown community group opposed to proposed traffic changes to challenge a

brochure the group is distributing called “The End of Newtown.” The Newtown Community Partnership Committee – comprised of village officials, business people and residents – says in the brochure that the transportation proposal would relocate state Route 32, rolling a four-lane highway through Newtown that would destroy some village businesses, relocate some homes, devastate Native American archeological sites, put a serious dent in Newtown’s income- and property-tax receipts and increase air, noise and water pollution. Hubbard said trans-

portation officials are seeking fact-based input from communities and have made no final decisions about the proposed plan, which is designed to improve travel and access between downtown Cincinnati and the eastern area of the region by upgrading and relocating roads, adding rail transit, expanding bus service and extending bikeways and walking paths. “We have, on multiple occasions, stated publicly and to several of you directly, that we will not support the realignment of any roadway option that would irreparably damage or ‘destroy New-

town’ or any community along the corridor,” Hubbard and Manger say in the email. Hubbard told the Community Press that, “I will tell you, I will not support a new interstate highway or an interstate-like highway traversing the eastern corridor area. “There is no desire to

destroy any central business district or neighborhood in any way, shape or form,” Hubbard said. Newtown Village Councilmen Mark Kobasuk and Chuck Short, both members of the Newtown Community Partnership Committee, say the group is standing by the statements in its brochure.

“Newtown has been opposed to the (Eastern Corridor) since it was presented in the 60s,” Short said. “It does not benefit Newtown. “They continue to state at every meeting (that) they want to hear from us, but apparently it is on deaf ears.”

Anderson Township is looking to cash in on the redevelopment at River Downs. Trustees are considering creating new tax increment financing districts along the Ohio River that would include River Downs, 6301Kellogg Ave., and the vacant property across the street. “It’s a way for us to capture some of the improvement dollars … and put those back into the community,” said Township Administrator Vicky Earhart. “We’re talking about doing improvements to the area to make it more accessible for economic development and for businesses or residents or developmentalongtheriverfront.” Unlike other tax increment financing districts in Anderson Township where money could be distributed throughout the community, this one would be more restrictive and specific to the Ohio Riverfront area, Earhart said. Construction is well underway at River Downs racetrack, and it’s getting a little easier to envision what the entire 122-acre property will look like after work is finished next year. Las Vegas-based Pinnacle Entertainment bought River Downs in 2011 and has plans to add 1,600 video lottery terminals to a new gaming area. There also are plans for restaurants, offices, an attached grandstand around a one-mile track and stables on the eastern side of the main building. Pinnacle, which also owns Belterra Casino Resort and Spa in Indiana, is making an estimated $209 million investment in the River Downs redevelop-

ment. Live racing, which took place at Beulah Park, south of Columbus, this season, will return when River Downs re-opens, likely next spring. “We’re excited about the prospects of River Downs given the outstanding location and the interplay between this facility and (Belterra),” Pinnacle President and Chief Financial Officer Carlos Ruisanchez told investors during a conference call earlier this year. Anderson Township’s Board of Zoning Appeals also recently approved several variances for signs. The sign to the east of the main entrance will be an electronic variable message board to advertise special offers or events. Others are wall signs celebrating the history of the property and the sport, including a large, semi-transparent sign covering part of a glass-window wall. Some residents who live on Kentuckyview Drive expressed concern about light from the electronic message board or those focused on other signs around the building affecting their properties, located on the hillside above River Downs. Bob Herr, who is a project manager for Pinnacle, said he doesn’t think it would be an issue because the building isn’t directly parallel with Kellogg Avenue, but he’d work with the designers to address those concerns.

“We’ve taken careful consideration of the entire look of the facility,” said Kevin Kaufman, general manager of River Downs, at the zoning meeting. “I think it’s going to be a first-class facility … we’ve worked very hard on it.” Earhart said they’re still not sure how much the township would get from the new tax increment financing districts because the entire investment may not all go toward boosting the property value. She said they’re considering this type of tax increment financing district to help improve the area and could use the money for a river walk, public river access, preservation or improving roads and township gateways along the Ohio Riverfront. “There is so much we can do in the area to make it a destination for the community,” she said. “We’re excited about it and really hope to get this accomplished so we can invest back into the area.” Anderson Township’s Board of Trustees has not approved creating these tax increment financing districts, but has sent notice to the local school districts, as required by Ohio law. The school districts would still get100 percent of the property taxes they’d otherwise receive if the trustees create these new tax increment financing districts, explained Township Law Director Margaret Comey.

Frequent sign damage frustrates veterans By Forrest Sellers


BATAVIA TWP. — A local Veterans of Foreign Wars post is asking for help. During the recent Batavia Township trustees meeting, representatives from the Clermont County Post 3954 asked the township if it can install something to prevent damage to its sign. The Post’s lighted sign, which is affixed to a wood pole at the corner of Greenbriar Road and Old state Route 32, has been frequently hit by motorists. David Murrell, a vice commander at the Post, asked if the township can erect some type of barrier, such as a pylon or guard rail. Murrell said in previous instances when the

sign had been hit it did not suffer any extensive damage and the pole it was attached to could be reinserted. However, recently the sign was hit by a truck and damaged significantly. Although the pole was intact, plastic on the sign which waterproofed it was cracked. Murrell estimated it will cost at least $4,000 to repair. Trustee Randy Perry asked whether the sign was located in a right of way. Service Director Ken Embry said the pole is situated in the county right of way, but the township could still take a look at it. Murrell said the damage is strictly from vehicles, primarily trucks, which have driven around the corner too sharply and then hit the sign.

FELICITY — When two varsity teams line up in a gym with the same amount of players and the same rules, anything can happen. If it’s a home game, there’s usually a little edge for that team. If it’s Senior Night, sometimes the upperclassmen can consolidate their efforts for “one last hurrah”. For Felicity-Franklin’s High School volleyball team, that “hurrah” took place Oct. 3 when the Lady Cardinals knocked off league-leading Williamsburg. Just a month earlier, the Lady Wildcats had disposed of coach Damon Smith’s Lady Cardinals in three straight games. On this night, it was Felicity-Franklin in three straight, 25-15, 29-27, 25-22. In the final game, the Lady Cardinals came back from a 22-20 deficit for the victory. “That was a pleasant surprise,” Smith said. “I think Williamsburg came in overconfident and taking us kind of lightly. I have five seniors and they all kind of did what was necessary.” Suddenly, a season with few wins was at least temporarily salvaged. A year ago, Felicity-Franklin had double digit wins and marquees player in Amber Lawrence. With Lawrence graduated and playing at UC Clermont, Smith has had to shuffle the deck and redistribute his Lady Cards. “We’ve been playing with what we’ve had to work with,” Smith said. “I don’t have the power players I had last year. I have a lot of girls with a lot of the same skill and talent.” One of those is senior leader, Charlotte Clinger, a key contributor in the victory over Williamsburg. “I’ve been real happy with her play,”

Smith said. Clinger and company have tried to cling on to many games. Now, many wonder if the girls can duplicate the battle of ‘Burg. “That’s a good question,” Smith said chuckling. “I thought two weeks ago we might have peaked. We lost to New Richmond in five games and had missed opportunities to win it. All season long, we’ve been on the bubble. We haven’t really been drilled in any particular game.” The evidence is there. In addition to the five set loss to New Richmond, Felicity-Franklin lost in four to both Blanchester and Goshen. They also had close losses to Seven Hills and Bethel-Tate and actually redeemed the Bethel-Tate loss with a four-set win over the Lady Tigers Sept. 19. However this season winds up, there’s optimism for the future in Felicity. “A couple of our better players are un-

derclassmen,” Smith said. “Our best hitters are two sophomores.” One of those is sophomore Ashley Moore, who was also one of the school’s better scorers in basketball last season as a freshman. “She’s one of my main players, a very small middle hitter,” Smith said. “She does a really good job and is a real scrapper on the hits.” Scrappers comprise the FelicityFranklin roster as tall girls are few and far between in the hallways. Smith started the season with 25 between varsity and junior varsity and that number is around 22 factoring in injuries. Take away the five seniors and the depth looks good. “The next two years should be really promising years,” Smith said. “They’ve just come alive here. I hope it’s not a big push and a letdown.” Once the volleyball season ends, Smith won’t be jumping right back into the gym with the boys basketball team as in years past. He stepped aside from that spot over the spring. “You just get the feeling that somebody younger can bring a little more that I didn’t have to give them,” Smith said. On the other hand, he’s not totally removed from the hoop scene as he’s been asked to coach the seventh-grade kids. “Hopefully, I’ll have something to offer,” Smith said. “Whether they win games or not, at least I can teach them some fundamentals. That’s one thing we’ve been lacking.” In the meantime, he will continue as varsity volleyball coach to watch the Lady Cardinals progress around the net. After road games at Georgetown and Batavia, the tournament begins for the Felicity-Franklin. In October, anything can happen. Just ask Williamsburg.

McNicholas freshman forward Gorman finds soccer success


PRESS PREPS HIGHLIGHTS By Scott Springer and Mark Motz


By Mark D. Motz

MT. WASHINGTON — Experience is nice, but not everything. McNicholas High School freshman soccer forward Sophie Gorman stands as evidence. Truth be told, though, Gorman doesn’t stand still for very long. She’s too busy running the field, sticking her foot and head into all kinds of traffic-laden places. In turn, the ball tends to end up in one place - the back of the net. “Passing and scoring, that’s what I like best,” Gorman said. “Just getting on the ball and making something happen. I’m pretty confident about it.” Understandably. Gorman leads the Rockets in scoring – and is tied for sixth on the Girls Greater Catholic League Coed leaderboard - with seven goals and seven assists through Oct. 6. McNick senior Savannah Carmosino has seven goals and six assists for the Rockets, leaving her a point behind her teammate and tied for eighth in league scoring. “Her composure on the ball is what stands out for me,” Rockets head coach Ben Kirkpatrick said of Gorman. “She’s very smart out there, knows where to be. That composure I think is what gives her such a nose for the ball. “I saw pretty early on she has the technical skills to play at this level. It took a few games for her to realize she could play at this level, to have the confidence in herself and her teammates, but she kept her head and worked hard and has had a very nice year for us so far.” Gorman – a Union Township resident – came to the Rockets by way of

Immaculate Heart of Mary School. She’s played soccer since age 5, following her sister Katie – now a freshman at Ohio State University – onto the pitch. Soccer helped the transition into high school. “You have another family,” Gorman said. “You have a bunch of friends from all different classes. It makes it easier.” Gorman’s arrival helped McNick secure its sixth consecutive league title. The Rockets enter sectional tournament play next week ranked second in the Enquirer Division II coaches poll. “I like the fact of winning and having

success,” Gorman said. “This is a great team and a great opportunity for me to be part of it.” Kirkpatrick said he hopes the ride will last a few more weeks after the regular season ended Oct. 7 at Roger Bacon. “We’re finally getting healthy,” he said. “We had two or three concussions and two or three leg injuries in the early part of the season that slowed us down. We’re starting to come together and play some good soccer, which is what you want to be doing this time of year.”

Shouse seeks long-term plan for Tate My name is Ron Shouse. I'm running for Tate Township trustee in this upcoming election. I've called Tate Township my home for 19 years. My wife of 27 years, Jeanine, is employed in the food services department with the BethelTate schools. Our oldest son, Jared, is a paramedic/firefighter with Central Joint Fire Department. His wife, Anna, works in retail sales, and they make their home in the village of Bethel. Our son, Jordan, is enrolled in engineering school at Cincinnati State. I'm employed with the Clermont County Park District; so – as you see – our family tradition is serving the public.

I'm involved in several civic groups including serving as scoutmaster with Troop 196, as past president Ronald W. and lifetime Shouse COMMUNITY PRESS member of the Grassy Run GUEST COLUMNIST Historical Arts Committee, as past third Vice Commander for Sons of the American Legion Post 406 and, several years as youth soccer and baseball coach. There are three issues that are important to me, they are: 1. Asian Longhorn Beetle While I don't agree with whole host removal, I do be-

The human heart is causing division If ever there was a time that compares with the time period of the Tower of Babel, it is today. Babel as you know means confusion. And confusion is what we have on every front. Our story begins in Genesis 11:1, “And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech.” The descendants of Noah now unified and united by a strong common bond of a common language had “not” dispersed and separated themselves among the land, as God instructed them to do. As we read farther in the story here you will begin to see that their posture was really one defiance against God. It was unanimous as they decided, “...Let us build a city and a tower...”(Gen. 11:4). The very first builder of a city was Cain. And with cities came crime, immorality, decadence, poverty, moral and social decay. The one language would enable them to work together more efficiently and effectively, but they were going in the wrong direction. Folks, if we are going to work together, let us work together for the cause of Christ; to provoke one another to love, to promote and encourage one another in the kingdom work. God will bless those efforts as He will be pleased. He will be glorified. And understand God is looking for “unity” not necessarily uniformity. God loves diversity and variety. But, here they decided they would ascend to the Most High. They would get as close as they could to God…on their terms. They would demonstrate their greatness. God wants us to get close to Him. He wants us to know Him, through His Word, through prayer and fellowship. But this is nothing more than man trying to get to God on his own terms, much like today. Many people today are convinced that the secret to a good life is charting their own course, believing that they know what is best and ignoring God’s directives and fol-

lowing their own path. They place a lot of confidence in their own abilities to make those all important Ben decisions in Hurst life. They judge COMMUNITY PRESS GUEST COLUMNIST their success of their lives according to worldly standards instead of what “...thus saith the Lord.” And it must be said the building of this tower was not intended to be a place of “refuge” because they feared another flood. No! This was done to make a name for themselves ... to openly defy God. This was done because they sought to achieve immortality by building this monument in their honor, that would be seen and remembered for generations to come. They wanted to be remembered for their achievements. Sadly, they preferred their own glory to God’s glory. Paradoxically, they would try and come near to God, not in holiness, but in height and might. Again, they thought that they could approach God in their own way, and as a result God confused and confounded their languages. Soon chaos erupted; unable to understand one another, they went off in different directions; The tower was left unfinished. They became scattered, the very thing they were trying to avoid. And seemingly ever since God confounded the languages of man, man has attempted to confound and confuse the Truth’s of God, the Word of God. Men have tried again and again to make a religion of their own, one that satisfies without condemning him. A religion that pleases man, and appeals to the flesh. But it is not a language barrier that is causing division in our world today. It is not cultural barriers, but the human heart is the culprit. We have been building towers.

lieve with the environmental assessment directives that it's a landowner's right to request whole host removal. As for the currently used chemical, I'm honestly not comfortable with its use. It's my hope that science will prevail and progress continues on new methods of eradication. I think it's good to have a watchdog group to keep things in check, but we should always remember to respect our neighbors and their decisions. Many of you have been through it; mentor our residents regardless of their choices. 2. Fiscal responsibility While current trustees have done a great job in keeping the township in fiscal shape, it's

important to continue being responsible as new people take the oath to serve the residents of the township. Working in the public sector, I know how important budgeting is and will use my background to help continue good stewardship of the township's money. With the shrinking local government funding, finding the funds without going to the pockets of the residents will remain a focal part of my term if elected. 3. Long term plan I will work for creating a long range plan for Tate Township. I truly believe that if we are to continue to grow, we need a long range plan to get there in the right way.

I love living in an area with small town charm, where everyone knows one another. I will work toward a five-, 10-, and 20-year plan. This will assist in bringing more business and more families into our community. Businesses bring people, people bring money. The more people – the more successful are our local businesses. With local business our village and township will continue to thrive and grow. I ask you to please help support our local businesses. On Nov. 5 I ask for your support. I want to be your township trustee. Ronald W. Shouse is a Tate Township resident.

CH@TROOM Last week’s question Have your health-care plan premiums increased and terms changed significantly for 2014? Why do you think there was or was not a significant change?

“My health care premiums have not changed significantly for 2014 because I’m lucky enough to have coverage on my wife’s plan. However, as President Obama promised, as long ago as 2007, if you like your present coverage you don’t have to change anything under the Affordable Care Act. This is so simple that it has lobotomized the right-wing racists.” TRog

“After years of double digit rate increases, our insurance is not increasing in 2014 nor are there any major changes in coverage.” D.A.

“Part B of my Medicare (handled by private insurer) went up slightly. However, before Medicare I was on private insurance out of my own pocket. In the last 10 years it managed to increase by 7 to 10 percent per year with no additional benefits, which were very limited. “If I had gotten my cancer and subsequent surgery before Medicare kicked in I would probably be fighting off bankruptcy right now. The lousy insurance for exorbitant price would not have covered half of the huge bills that were incurred. “I just wish that Obamacare (ACA) was available sooner. From what I can tell for the same price I had been laying out for 10 years I could have afforded a much more comprehensive policy and slept better

at night.”


“Yes, my premiums are expected to go up about 7 percent. I think medical costs are out of control in this country. “The one good thing to happen for the American people is the Affordable Health Care Act. As a single mother of two children ages 22 and 20 it is wonderful that they are covered under my plan. I don’t know how anyone can afford to not have insurance in today’s world, so finding ways to help everyone get covered is a step in the right direction. “I know far too many people who have had to go without insurance because it wasn’t offered at their place of employment, so their option often was the ER, which is a significant cost difference from regular medical care by a family physician. It isn’t a perfect solution, but it is progress. “Another big step will be to find ways to bring hospital costs back to a reasonable level. I think it is coming and is absolutely necessary. When you compare what Americans pay for certain procedures to similar quality in other countries it is an abomination. D.P.

“Health insurance is probably only going to be affected by all the normal things that affect health insurance premiums, like the fact that health care costs are rising. “I am lucky to have health care through my employer and yes my costs have gone up, not because of Obamacare. Health care costs have risen every year for the last six years, though they’re not rising as fast now as they were several years ago, they’re still going up 4 percent or more a year. “So, generally speaking, for everybody, health insurance premiums are going to continue to rise. For people buying coverage through the exchanges – or as they’re officially called, the marketplaces – the premiums are going to be different from premiums available on plans previously, because the plans are different. “New plans are coming into the market. They have new requirements on them about what they have to cover. “We now know that no preexisting condition restrictions are going to be held against anybody. “And we also know that things like no more annual limits on what health care insurance payouts can be have come into effect, no lifetime limits. “So, in essence, the coverage is different from what was available previously for people buying coverage in the individual market. “And the prices are going to vary exchange by exchange, depending on how many insurers bid to participate in the program and how heavy a bargain states drove with the health insurers who are coming into the marketplace.” K.F.S.

A juvenile red-tailed hawk rehabilitated by RAPTOR Inc. just before it was released back into the wild at Alms Park. The hawk was found injured on nearby Grandin Road.GLENN HARTONG/STAFF


UNION TWP. — You could say patients are flocking to a new rehab center in the city. But you’d be a little off. That’s because the birds of prey being treated at RAPTOR (the Regional Association for the Protection and Treatment of Raptors) Inc. in Union Township aren’t flying there of their own winged accord. The hawks, owls, eagles and falcons are injured and concerned people are bringing them to the non-profit’s facility at 961 Barg Salt Run Road. RAPTOR Inc. moved to its Union Township location – which it bought in 2005 – next to the Cincinnati Nature Center at 949 Tealtown Road about a year ago. Before that it operated on Covered Bridge Road near the Winton Woods Park in Greenhills. “We are trying to get the word out so people know who to call when they find these injured birds and how we can be reached to provide outreach educational programs,” said Cindy Alverson of Loveland, executive director of RAPTOR Inc. The group has been treating and releasing birds of prey in the Greater Cincinnati area for 35 years. Some of the birds were hurt flying into windows. Others were entangled in fishing lines. “People who find injured birds of prey contact us and we are able to treat these birds with the help of veterinarians,” Alverson said. “In 2013 we have already admitted over 200 injured birds of prey. “On average RAPTOR admits 200 injured birds of prey annually,” Alverson said. Alverson said RAPTOR Inc. releases more than half the birds it treats. Which brings us to the second mission of RAPTOR Inc.:

community education. Besides treating injured and orphaned raptors the group presents educational programs at schools, libraries, community events and scout functions. That’s when some raptors that cannot be released get into the act. “If the raptors are unable to be returned to the wild they sometimes can be used for education ambassadors,” Alverson said. “We have 10 at our facility and often we transfer non-releasable birds to other facilities who have need of birds to be

used in educational programs.” Alverson said RAPTOR Inc. moved to Union Township because it needed to expand. “We needed space for rehabilitation where volunteers could come and work,” Alverson said. “RAPTOR Inc. always had a goal to have a facility with a huge flight cage so we would be able to provide flight conditioning for the species of birds such as peregrines and eagles, which

need large cages to condition in before release.” RAPTOR Inc. is supported by membership fees, grants and contributions for educational presentations. “We are always looking for donations or sponsorships to help support our rehabilitation efforts,” Alverson said. “With additional funds we plan to develop an educational center open to the public where they can come and view the

birds up close. “This work is important so people can learn about these birds and their part in their environment,” Alverson said. “Once they have this understanding they are more protective about these birds and (interested in) how they can help.” For more information about RAPTOR Inc. call 825-3325 or visit Cory Wright, assistant Union Township administrator, said RAPTOR Inc. is a much-appreciated member of the community. “They have successfully rehabilitated many animals and they are certainly a welcome addition to the community - from both a wildlife conservation perspective as well as an educational perspective,” Wright said.

Pea salad just like one from Hotel Sinton Today we started our first fire in the wood stove for the season. But it was a little weird, too, because when I looked out the window, the impatiens were a riot of color in the window boxes Rita and the Heikenfeld morning RITA’S KITCHEN glories looked like a burst of blue sky climbing up the white picket fence. The weather had turned quite chilly and it really was a perfect morning to have a nice, aromatic fire. If you ask most folks, they will tell you fall is their favorite time of year. I guess it’s because the outside work is winding down and so are we. And there’s nothing quite so beautiful as a mosaic of reds, browns and yellows as the leaves carpet our old country road.

Hotel Sinton’s spring pea salad

I was glad to get so many responses to Jan B.’s request for the Hotel Sinton pea salad. As always, thanks, thanks, thanks! The recipe from Juliane B., a Colerain township reader, was exactly like the one originally published by Cheri Brinkman in her first book of the best-selling series: “Cincinnati and Soup.” Now that I’ve seen the recipe, I know I’ve eaten it and liked the salad a lot. Juliane said she’s made it several times and people love it. Cheri told me: “This is a rare one as it is a salad dressing, not a true pea salad. It came from an older

made the famous radio rolls and for which I found a similar recipe that I still promise to post on my blog. Frisch’s ranch dressing: I’ve had a couple requests for this, so if you have a similar recipe, please share.

Stay tuned!

Knife skills video. Last week I shared information on honing steels. At the end of this month, Robert Hess, an expert on cutlery, will be a guest on my cable show “Love starts in the kitchen” on Union Township TV. The show will air in November on Warner Cable 8 and 15, so tune in.

Coming soon Rita’s reader- submitted recipe for a pea salad is just like the salad from the old Hotel Sinton. THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD

lady I knew who actually learned to cook in the kitchen of the old Hotel Sinton. What is interesting in this is the amount of mayonnaise in the salad; this may be lessened by the cook if they choose. The most important thing to stress here is that it should be served by tablespoon over chopped lettuce not as a solo salad – that was not what they did in “the good old days.” Best made ahead. FYI Cheri just published her latest, and best-selling, book “Cincinnati and Soup: Festivals and Frolics.”

mayonnaise. Put in a 9-inch by 13-inch dish and top with 1 cup mayonnaise. Garnish with the hard-boiled eggs. Serve. May be served over chopped lettuce.

Easy caramel apples

The hardest part of this recipe is opening all the caramels. I dipped the apples only halfway up and then rolled them into finely chopped salted nuts.

2 (16 oz.) bags frozen green peas 6 green onions, chopped 2 stalks of celery chopped fine 3 cups mayonnaise (more or less) 4 hard-boiled eggs, sliced

1 (14 oz.) bag vanilla caramels, unwrapped 2 tablespoons water or whipping cream Apples (I had small ones from our tree so had enough caramel coating for 10.) Sucker sticks or wooden craft sticks Toppings: chopped nuts, cookies, mini M&M’s, crushed pretzels, etc.

Mix peas, onions and celery. Mix in 2 cups

Remove stem and wash and dry apples.

Insert sticks. Set aside. Melt caramels with water over low heat. Dip apples in halfway or all the way if you want (you’ll get a smaller yield). Immediately roll bottoms in your choice of toppings. Set on sprayed pan to dry.

Can you help? Manyet Bakery’s cheesecake: I don’t want to disappoint Pat Barth, who asked again if any of you have the recipe or a similar one from this beloved Newport Bakery. This is the bakery that

Bethel Homecoming parade was beautiful Howdy Folks, I have been writing about the different orchards around our area. The Shaws Farm and Produce is on Ohio 131 east of Milford below Williams Corner. They have several kinds of produce. They have George hay rides, Rooks corn OLE FISHERMAN mazes to enjoy, straw bales, pumpkins, gourds and much more. These folks have been in the business for several years and are good farmers. They know their business. They will meet you with a big smile and hello. The kids will be so happy with the things for them to be involved. There will also be some items for the children to take home from the Shaw Farms. Stop and shop to learn how the farmers raise their items for sale. Their telephone number is 575-2022 they are open at 9 a.m. Friday evening the Bethel homecoming parade started at 6 p.m. it was a beautiful parade, bigger than last year. The ladies for the school queen candidates were all so beautiful. I don’t know who was selected as I write this. But whoever was crowned queen and king were very deserving and good students. Congratulations to each of them. Saturday morning Ruth Ann and I went to Bob Evan’s for breakfast with a group from our church. Then went to (Boston) Owensville to the Pumpkin Run. I have

never seen so many old beautiful cars in one place. The Northeastern Lions Club sells food and do real good. They said there were probably 2,600 cars. There were cars every place, there were vendors selling all kinds of items in the commercial building, the 4-H building and on the grounds. This is the biggest event in the county. The job of getting the cars registered is a big, big job and they are to be congratulated for the job. The Lions Club is responsible for the food and drinks and what a job this is. Ruth Ann and I understand how it is to get the food ordered since we were involved in the Grassy Run for the Monroe Grange. Someone has burned the midnight oil as they say to get this all together. I have one more day in rehab. We have driven 720 miles and spent 108 hours there. It has helped me and I thank the ladies that work for the excellent work they do. There are several folks that go regular to do the exercise and keep in shape. We have so much work here to do that I can get plenty of exercise. Sunday we had the homecoming at the old church here at East Fork. There were over 50 people there and some newcomers. The music was furnished by the Kinner Express. We had the honor of having Rick Crawford to give some history of our county. The folks always like to hear him tell these facts. Thanks Rick and thanks to the Kinner

Express they are so good. John Hale favored us with two songs which were great as always, thanks to you John. After the homecoming we went to our daughter Debby’s and Bob’s house for a special third birthday for our great-granddaughter; then birthday and anniversary gettogether for supper for several of our family. It seems as the family gets bigger and more involved with school and work it is harder to get together, so we celebrate several at the same time.

The farmers have started harvesting their soybeans. I have heard of yields of 40-60 bushel per acre – that is good. When we were farming a yield per acre was 30 bushel. Now of course the seed, fertilizer, and fuel, didn’t cost as much as it does today. They have to have big yields to make a profit. I picked the last green beans last Monday in a bed along side of the garage and picked another zucchini. We have green onions ready to eat. These were the last

onion sets Dannie Grant had. There were a bunch of dry ones; we got enough to set a bed eight feet long. We like the late green onions. Remember the first pancake breakfast the Lions Club has will be Saturday, Oct. 19, from 7:30 till 10:30 a.m. at the Bethel-Tate High School. We went to Lake Waynoka for a craft show on Oct. 12, then Oct. 19 we will be going to St. Gertrude in Madeira. For those of you who have been saving used batteries for the Monroe

Grange we won’t be doing this any more as the company has stopped taking them and giving the handicapped school money for them. Thank you for all you have donated. 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 park ranger. Rooks served for 28 years with the last five as manager of East Fork State Park.

County officials applied for funding from the Ohio Public Works Commission to improve this curve on Wolfpen-Pleasant Hill Road. Officials are considering realigning the road or putting up a new retaining wall. KEITH BIERYGOLICK/THE COMMUNITY PRESS

County set to address road’s dangerous curve By Keith BieryGolick

MIAMI TWP. — Traveling south on WolfpenPleasant Hill Road residents face a dangerous curve once they get past Kimberly Lane. “Essentially it goes downhill pretty significantly and then there is a hard turn to the right. (There is) basically a hill on one side and a creek on the other,” said Craig Stephenson, chief deputy engineer for Clermont County. When it rains, that section of the road becomes slippery – its guardrail is proof of that. “The guardrail is really dinged up,” said Mary Makley Wolff, Miami Township trustee. That’s why yellow crash barrels were put in place, but that was more than 10 years ago. “We know there have been (safety issues) that’s the reason the crash barrels are out there,” Stephenson said. “It’s been an ongoing problem, we just didn’t have the resources (to ad-


dress it).” Officials have not talked to property owners on the street yet, so Stephenson couldn’t say with certainty what is going to be done. “We might be getting a little ahead of ourselves ... but (we’re) looking to eliminate the current safety problem on Wolfpen through either a new retaining wall or some realignment of the road.” Officials from the county engineer’s office have applied for Ohio Public Works Commission funding for the project, which current estimates predict will cost taxpayers more than $1 million. “Generally, (with) these types of projects, there’s a reason we’re going out for funding,” Stephenson said. “We would be fairly reliant on the funding, but that’s not to say if we didn’t get the funding this year we would never do it – it just probably wouldn’t happen next year.” A grant won’t be finalized until next year, but officials should know

something informally later this month or early next month, he said. “We would want to do it when school is out next year – sometime between June and the end of August, at the least heavy lifting (of the project).” No designs or specifics have been worked up, but officials are currently soliciting letters of interest from consulting engineers – basically proposals detailing a company’s background, credentials and ideas for the project. “It’s going to be a huge task,” said Larry Fronk, chairman of the Clermont County Transportation Improvement District. But while funding dollars aren’t guaranteed, “it’s time for this (project) to get done,” Stephenson said. “Wolfpen is an important north-south connector,” he said. “So we’re really looking countywide at how can we target the corridors ... we have that are heavily traveled, really making an investment in those roads for the traveling public.”
