BECAUSE COMMUNITY MATTERS

Goshen Twp. property bought by taxpayers could be lost By Keith BieryGolick kbierygolick@communitypress.com

GOSHEN — Tens of thousands of taxpayers’ dollars could be lost if Goshen Township trustees don’t take action soon. More than 20 acres in the Villages of Belmont, a subdivision between state Route 28 and Fay Road, and a property on 1880 Main St. could be foreclosed and sold at a sheriff’s sale as soon as April. There is $12,165 of unpaid

taxes on the properties, according to Township Administrator Ray Snyder. The township doesn’t own either property, but a version of a development group established by former trustees does. The 14-member Community Improvement Corporation was established in 2007 to buy blighted or abandoned properties, improve them and sell them. It would then use any profit to reinvest in other real estate to encourage economic

This property on Sunnyside Drive was abandoned when Goshen Township’s Community Improvement Corporation bought it. Corporation members spent $6,757 to fix it up and sell it. They reimbursed the township those expenses and kept the profit for future ventures. Corporation members now owe more than $12,000 of unpaid taxes on those future ventures.

development in the township. But a new group of trustees cut ties with the operation in 2011. The organization became known as the Goshen Community Development Corporation and was no longer governed by Goshen Township. “As it was no longer affiliated with a governmental unit, property taxes began to accrue on any real estate deeded in that name,” Snyder told trustees at a recent meeting. The Goshen Community Development Corporation “made tax payments on the properties at 1880 Main (St.) and the Vil-

lages of Belmont with profits made from (a previous) sale, but they eventually ran out of money.” Without means to continue independently, corporation members asked trustees to reinstate the partnership and essentially pay the back-taxes to keep the properties. But trustees already appropriated $52,800 of taxpayers’ money for the corporation in 2009, Snyder said. Corporation members sunk $31,041 of taxpayers’ money into the Main Street property — an abandoned home that was “literally falling down,” Snyder

said. The property remains a vacant lot and taxpayer money spent on the project has not been reimbursed to the township, Snyder said. All three current trustees expressed support for the Community Improvement Corporation, but tabled a vote on it until their next meeting, scheduled for 7 p.m. Tuesday, April 8, at the township building, 6757 Goshen Road.

Milford Kroger grand reopening set for May By Jeanne Houck jhouck@communitypress.com

MILFORD — It was worth $5 million and it was an inside job. But we’re not talking crime here. We’re talking about the Kroger Co. store at 824 Main St. in Milford finishing up a multimillion-dollar interior remodeling that it will celebrate in less than two months. “Kroger is installing new produce coolers and meat coolers, frozen food cases and a variety of interior improvements to the store,” said Assistant Mil-

ford City Manager Pam Holbrook. Rachael Betzler, Kroger’s public relations manager, was reluctant to say much at this time. “We are undergoing a nearly $5 million remodel to our Milford Kroger store,” Betzler confirmed. “The remodel includes all new decor and new equipment throughout the departments,” Betzler said. “This store opened in 2000 after we relocated from 800 Main St. Kroger has been part of the Milford community since 1961.

“More information will be provided in a press release closer to the grand reopening in early May,” Betzler said. The project did not require approval from the Milford Planning Commission because it involves no exterior work. Milford City Engineer Bud White issued a building permit for the remodeling at Kroger, which began in July 2013 and did not necessitate temporarily closing the store.

Miami Twp. honor guards tapped for Reds game By Keith BieryGolick kbierygolick@communitypress.com

MIAMI TWP. — The Miami Township Police Department’s Honor Guard played an important role in the pregame festivities at Great American Ball Park during the Reds’ first night game of the season. Before the Reds took on the St. Louis Cardinals township police officers marched out the thirdbase line, made a sharp right turn toward home plate and presented the national colors to an expected crowd of more than 42,000 fans. “It doesn’t take very long, but we’re out there in front of the entire stadium. It gets a little nervy,” said Miami Township Police Sgt. Fred Fatute. That’s because the Honor Guard doesn’t simply walk onto the field and salute. There’s more to it than that. “Everything is precision. Every foot step has to be exactly the same, every movement of the rifle, everything has to be perfect,” Fatute said. Nerves were running high for the Miami Township Fire Department Honor Guard as well,

which was working its first Reds game and its first event ever. The Fire Department Honor Guard is “brand new,” said Michael Cooper, township firefighter. “It’s a fantastic opportunity for us. Everybody is really excited and hoping it is just the beginning of a longstanding tradition ... (that) will continue on with our department long after we’re gone.” For Fatute, being a part of the Honor Guard is “the thing I enjoy most in police work.” “Doing Honor Guard to me means something,” he

said. The honor guard presentation means something to the Reds organization and fans in attendance too, said Zach Bonkowski, Reds senior director of promotional events and player relations. “The national anthem is kind of this symbolic start to the game if you will. Everyone stops what they are doing, turns their attention to the flag and specifically to flag on the field. It’s a very patriotic moment, a moment everyone in the park shares in,” Bonkowski said. When Reds officials showed the Honor Guard members on the scoreboard during the national anthem the Miami Township name was plastered underneath them for everyone in attendance can see. “It’s a pretty special day,” Fatute said. “Doing it on opening night is unbelievable.” More than 40,000 people will watch them in the

stadium opening night, but that’s about as easy as Honor Guard gets. “Normally we do Honor Guard for funerals and different things like that,” Fatute said. When Miami Township Police Cpl. Glenn Evans died in December, only a week before Christmas, the Honor Guard traveled with him all the way to Corbin, Ky., for his funeral. “That was pretty heartwrenching because we all knew him,” Fatute said. Evans worked as a police officer for 46 years. Carrying Evans’ casket draped with an American flag was another reminder of the Honor Guard’s significance. “Our motto is ‘The best we can do is the least we can do,’” Fatute said. “In other words, the very least we can do is the absolute best job we could do for that fallen officer.”

Softball season returns to diamonds with high hopes By Mark D. Motz

mmotz@communitypress.com

Arcing arms, quick bats and the slap of leather herald the start of a new season on the softball diamond. Area teams spring into action this week.

Clermont Northeastern

» The Rockets were 22-6 last season, including a perfect 9-0 in the Southern Buckeye Conference National - good for their fourth straight league title - on their way to a second consecutive regional final run that left the team one game short of the state final four. Seven players graduated from the 2013 squad maybe most notably pitcher Emily Anderson, who now hurls for the University of Toledo - but head coach Bill Goldfuss said this group will be fine come tournament time. “We’re going to be young, but we’re going to be better at the end of the season than when we start it,” he said. “I think our future is going to be a whole lot better than people might expect from us.” Part of that is due to a

quartet of returning starters, including junior catcher Allison Gilkerson, junior shortstop Rachel Ward and junior first baseman Alexis Burden. Sophomore Lindsey Wright joins the juniors as a returnee at third. Senior Abbi Pritchard and junior Nicole Hempleman move into starting roles in right and center, respectively. Freshman Missy Schweiger will miss the first three games of the season while competing for a national cheerleading title, but should make an immediate impact on the mound when she returns. “Stepping in behind Emily would be a tall order for anybody, let a lone a freshman,” Goldfuss said. “We’re going to have to play a lot more defense than we have in the past few years, which is OK. Day by day, game by game, inning by inning and play by play, we’re looking to improve every time out. We just want to have an opportunity to play for a championship.” CNE is scheduled to

open the season April 2 at home against Williamsburg.

Goshen

» The Warriors went 811 last season , 4-5 in the SBC American. Only two seniors from that club graduated, so head coach John Strauss has 10 returning players on his varsity roster of 14. “We’ve got a good, strong nucleus of leaders returning and we think we can be better than we were last season,” Strauss said. “We’re looking to be over .500. They’ve worked extremely hard and they’re learning to communicate with one another on the field.” Senior first baseman Rian Adams returns to share a leadership role with coach’s daughter and senior left fielder Bethany Strauss. Sophomore Kelsie Rodich returns on the mound for the Warriors. Much of the infield behind her consists of her classmates, including Shalee Gray at second base, Ashleigh Campbell at shortstop and Annie Gadberry

at third. Freshman right fielder Kelsey Hyden should make an immediate impact with her bat and find a home in right field defensively. “We’re hoping to be a better offensive team than we’ve been,” Strauss said. “That’s where they need some work to take some of the pressure of our pitchers. They don’t have to be perfect every game for us to win if we can get them some runs.” On the other side of the ball, Strauss is a believer in fundamentals. “We have to back each other up and be cognizant of what’s going on around us,” he said. “I’m expecting everybody to know what to do if the ball comes their way and they seem to be receptive to that.” Goshen is schedule to open the season April 2 on the road at Amelia.

Milford

cinnati Conference. Milford fell to Mason in the Division I sectional finals. Head coach Christy Gregory returns four starters from that team, but will have five freshmen on the roster as well. “You look at our team on paper with five freshmen and you wince a little bit,” Gregory said. “But I think the fact we have a strong pitcher and some good veteran players, we should be in pretty good shape. Our veteran players have to lead and they have to provide the example for all the freshmen.” Senior and Bowling Green State University recruit Kayla Gregory will lead the vets from her shortstop position. Juniors Shelby Kirk and Devon Johnson play first

base and outfield, respectively. The returning pitcher is sophomore Hannah Huffer. Milford won’t have the services of sophomore second baseman Kelly Noll; she broke her foot at the end of basketball and will miss softball season. Among the freshmen, keep an eye on Kelsey Seitz behind the plate, though she is a natural second baseman. Katelyn Rhuede should help solidify the infield at third base. “I would say our strength is offensively,” Gregory said. “We put the ball in play a lot better than I expected with such a young team. Where (we need some work) is defensive comfort and commuSee SOFTBALL, Page A5

Goshen hires Road Warrior to fill football position By Mark D. Motz mmotz@communitypress.com

GOSHEN — Forget the Mad Max sequel of the same name. Forget the menacing professional tag-team wrestlers of the same era who gleaned their look from the movie. Ryan George is the Road Warrior. Who is Ryan George? Among other things, he is the man Goshen High School hired as the new varsity football coach to replace the retiring Mark Slagle. And he’s spending a lot of time in his car of late. It’s partly because he remains the athletic director and football coach at Tell City High School in Indiana through the end of the school year. Partly because he and his wife - Dr. Karen McBride, who landed a job at the University of Dayton that prompted George to start looking for work in Ohio - are searching for a new home somewhere

between Dayton and Goshen. “Being the wife of a coach isn’t always easy,” George said. “But I’m lucky. She understands. She was an all-America (softball) pitcher in high school in Texas. She knows the impact a coach can have on an athlete and she supports that.” George learned the same lesson in life from his father, Indiana High School Football Hall of Fame coach Robert “Bud” George, who died in 1986. “I always remember as a kid my mom picking me up and dropping me off at his practices,” he said. “I was always his ball boy or his manager. When he died, seeing all the people who came back and told stories about how he impacted their lives made a huge impression on me at a young age. At a fairly young age I knew I was going to do something in sports the rest of my life.” He became a player first, beginning at Tell City before mov-

ing on to Indiana State and eventually Indiana University, where he graduated in 1994. He got a master’s degree in sports management from the U.S. Sports Academy in Alabama and has been coaching ever since. Goshen principal Nick Inabnitt introduced George at the school board meeting March 10. “He’s very passionate, knowledgeable and energetic,” Inabnitt said. “He truly wanted to be a part of the Warrior family. It was a top priority for us to get the right guy for the job and we did. He’s all about building relationships with people and his student athletes.” Superintendent Darrell Edwards agreed. “Coach George's references were outstanding,” he said. “Nobody had anything but praise for him, either as a football coach or a teacher.” George said he is looking forward to getting off the road, get-

ting settled and getting started full time in Goshen. “It’s been a fairly consistent job,” George said. “They’ve committed to winning. I have the support of Mark (Slagle). The principal was the head coach. I think we’re all on the same page in what we want for this program. “There’s a challenge. You want to carry on a good tradition and add on to the tradition yourself. You look forward to that sort of thing, being part of an established program and building on it yourself.” George plans to build what he called a “physical running team” that will play some I formations, some spread formations and use a lot of play-action in the passing game. Defensively, look for a 4-2-5 scheme that “allows a lot of easy adjustments to any kind of offense we might face. But first and foremost, we’re going to be physical.”

nication. The younger players also need to know the daily expectations of the varsity game. Gregory said she expects Milford to contend for the ECC crown in a league that has improved top to bottom this season. The Eagles opened the season March 29 with a doubleheader against Reading in the first game and Butler in the second.

Milford aims to challenge for ECC top tier By Mark D. Motz mmotz@communitypress.com

The rackets are strung, the nets pulled tight and area boys high school tennis players are set to hold court.

Clermont Northeastern

» The Rockets had a rough go last season, but head coach Jenny Poe has several returning players - and a relatively large 13man roster overall - she hopes can lead the team to some victories. Senior Kaden Brown returns to play singles, while classmate Even Pellep will play doubles. With whom he plays is still to be determined. Senior Brycen Gott and returning sophomores Hunter Doughman and Gracey Puckett all will vie for positions in the lineup. “They’re putting a lot of effort in this spring,” Poe said. “It’s hard to tell (how the season will go) because we haven’t had a lot of time on the court (because of inclement weather). “We’re looking for them to get a a couple of wins as a team. That would be good.” CNE is scheduled to open the season at home against Wilmington April 2 before traveling to Felicity-Franklin April 4.

Goshen

» The Warriors struggled through a two-win season as a team in 2013, but head coach Pete Patterson is hopeful better days lie ahead this spring. Starting with first singles player Malachi Gierzak, a junior. “He took a lot of hits last year playing first singles as a sophomore, but he has really improved his game,” Patterson said. “He should be much better this season.” Joining Gierzak in the singles rotation are two more juniors - Andy Duncan and Jimmy Price who played second doubles together as sophomores. Senior co-captains Cole Hadley and Christ Treadway posted a 14-2

record at first doubles last season and will remain there for their final high school campaign. Senior Josh Steele, sophomore Alec Hillman and freshman Alex Wells will form a second doubles team by committee early in the season until a sold combination emerges. Senior Jake Cook could add some depth; he’s missed some early practices with his involvement in the school musical. “We’ll be experienced for the most part,” Patterson said. “We should end up in the top half or even the top third of the (Southern Buckeye Conference). Goshen was scheduled to open the season in a battle of the Warriors, going on the road to face Winton Woods March 31.

Milford

» The Eagles finished 9-3 last season, including a 3-3 record in the Eastern Cincinnati Conference good for fourth place, the exact middle of the seventeam pack. Head coach Claire Smalley returns an allsenior lineup with plans to climb higher in the league standings, challenging the likes of Loveland and Turpin for the title. “It’s going to be a rebuilding year next year, obviously, so we really want to make the most of this spring with all these seniors,” she said. “I think it’s going to be good. We hope to be better than we were. We’ve improved our strength of schedule outside the league a lot. We want the challenge.” Senior Austin Hensley returns at first singles, while classmates Andre Huxell and Casey Harris play second and third singles, respectively. David Hacker and Andrew Giltmeier team up at first doubles, with David Shelton and Brennan Perkins competing at second doubles. “They’ve all improved so much most people wouldn’t believe they are the same players from when they started as freshmen or sophomores,” Smalley said.

“I’m really proud of them and excited to get the season started.” Milford was scheduled to open the season April 1 at St. Xavier. “We’re going after the big boys right away,” Smalley said. “We’re going to play the best schedule we can to get these guys ready for the big matches and tournaments.”

McNicholas

» The Rockets have a new head coach in Bryan Combs, fresh from leading McNick to the district tournament in bowling during the winter season. The radio newsman said working the morning shift on 700 WLW gives him time in the afternoons. As he plays tennis himself in fact, he’s the captain of a local club team - and McNick was in need, he was up for adding a second coaching gig to his resume. “I don’t think they won a match last year,” Combs said. “We’re looking just to improve. We want to have a little bit of success and just teach the game to these guys. If nothing else, I think they’ll enjoy the game. They already have a lot of enthusiasm. They’re working hard.” Adam Bill is the lone returning senior and he will play first singles. Steve Sinclair, Kyle Cullion and Jonathan Gray will be in the singles mix as well. Freshman Eric Bill - Adam’s younger brother - may have an opportunity to play some doubles with his older sibling. Sal Marino, Jacob Fries and freshman Nick Williams should contribute in the doubles rotation. Mitchell Hartwell bowled for Combs and is involved in McNick’s spring musical, Andrew Lloyd Weber’s Cats. So is Michael Pincombe. “It’s like cross training of the ultimate kind,” Combs said. “The choreography they’re learning will translate directly to their footwork in tennis. I know a lot of coaches wouldn’t allow it, but I was in high school, too.”

» The Rockets went 15-10 last season, taking second in the Girls Greater Catholic League Coed. Head coach Terry Doyle returns as head coach - he brought former Rocket baseball coach Willy Corbett on as his assistant - and has a team featuring eight re-

turning starters. “We are going to be fairly strong offensively and above average defensively,” Doyle said. “We only lost one starting pitcher from last year and other than that, all our position players are back and then some.” The pitcher in question was Abby Jones, who graduated and left the mound to senior Carsen Gerome - up from the JV team - and freshman Alessia Accardino. Senior co-captains Carly Dugan and Danielle Piening anchor the center of the infield at second and shortstop, respectively. The third captain, senior Meaghan McGraw, plays right. Junior Paige Jones is in left while classmate Gabbie Latreille leads off and plays center. Senior catcher Katie St. Charles bats third while junior Glen Este transfer Nicole Geyygan

plays first base, where sophomore Hannah Brune should also see some time, having started there last season. Senior Maddie Sorensen plays third. Seniors outfielders Rachel Eckert and Alyson Schenz, as well as senior first baseman Sadie Shaffer, bring additional depth and experience. “We’re going to be aggressive,” Doyle said. “We’re going to run and bunt. We may run ourselves out of some innings, but we’re going to put pressure on people to make a play with the ball. Doyle said he expects his team to contend with traditional favorites like Hamilton Badin and Dayton Carroll for the GGCL title. McNick opened the season March 29 against Loveland.

Milford’s Severns to golf for Mount Vernon Nazarene Milford High senior golfer Aly Severns will take her talents to the collegiate level when she joins the Mount Vernon Nazarene University team for the 2014-15 season. Severns was a two-time first-team All-Eastern Cincinnati Conference selection during her prep career. Severns was especially outstanding during her junior season when she was named the first-ever ECC Player of the Year, while setting a then school record with a nine-hole average of 42.5. In the Fall of 2013, Severns finished

second in the ECC in scoring with a 44.3 average and placed fourth in the ECC Tournament. She went on to qualify for the OHSAA Southwest District Tournament where she finished 23rd.

CH@TROOM Last week’s question Do you think economic sanctions against Russian banks and officials will prevent Russia from annexing the Crimean peninsula from Ukraine? Why or why not?

“Unlike most of my classmates I excelled in history. Many of the boys complained saying, ‘Why do we have to learn so much about something that will do us no good in real life?’ The teacher replied, ‘Those who fail to learn history are doomed to repeat it’ and she wasn’t referring to our grades. “The scene in presentday Europe is chillingly similar to the 1930s when Hitler was implementing plans to take over any nation he pleased. I cannot believe our president, and especially European leaders, are so feckless. “All the world needs to complete this pathetic scenario is for one of those leaders to wave a piece of paper proclaiming it guarantees ‘Peace in our time.’ Putin, like Hitler, will only respond to force.” R.V.

“It's a done deal. This area was Russian for centuries till 55 years ago. The majority of people have spoken. This area has been fought over time and time again. Read history about the Crimean wars. “We have more pressing problems in Syria and Africa where blood is shed each day.”

T.G.

“Sanctions are only punitive and will not stop the new Russian Czar from doing what he wants. He thinks he is the new savior of the Russian Federation. “However, sanctions may hurt both the Russian economy and their standing in the international community. That is about all anyone (except maybe the sabre rattler, McCain) can hope to accomplish. It may also give Putin pause to think what his next move may do. “Right now the Obama administration and the Euro zone nations are doing what is proper and prudent. The last thing this country or Western Europe needs is another Iron Curtain going up. But the right wing probably would love to get back to the good old days when we knew who the enemy really was.” J.Z.

NEXT QUESTION There is a local and national campaign to make baseball’s opening day an official holiday. Do you think this is a good idea? Why or why not? Every week we ask readers a question they can reply to via e-mail. Send your answers to espangler@communitypress.com with Chatroom in the subject line by 5 p.m. on Thursday.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Author has the most ridiculous letters

I was amused by the letter from John Joseph in your March 26 edition. Mr. Joseph complained about some recent issues threatening to drop his subscription if Community Press didn't print more stories and columns to his liking. The most ridiculous things I've read in your paper are letters from Mr. Joseph. In one, he stated that he hated Barack Obama simply because he is black. In others he attacked people he disagreed with, not on their viewpoints but on a personal level. Good riddance Mr. Joseph.

actual building of a statue. Think about many of the problems our society faces and what causes these problems. Out of control drinking of alcoholic beverages can not only ruin the life of the drinker but also the lives of other innocent people. The same can be said of the person who misuses drugs. Young men and women who have children without making a commitment to marry and raise those children in a stable family structure expect someone else to take care of their offspring. As the old saying goes - any male can father a child but it takes a real man to be a father. School dropouts, welfare cheats, dishonest political leaders and lazy neighbors all contribute to society’s problems. they expect other people to clean up their messes. Now think about the people you admire and respect - your

family, your neighbors, your friends and your co-workers. Why do you admire and respect them? It’s probably because they live responsible lives. They’re not perfect. They’re human beings who make mistakes and have to deal with personal issues and problems. How do they deal with their mistakes and issues and problems? They face them with courage and character. They don’t make excuses or fail to take responsibility for their lives. They set a wonderful example for us to follow. They make our neighborhood, our county, our state and our country a better place to live. Let’s honor them and engrave their names on that Statue of Responsibility!

If using brown rice, check package directions for liquid and time needed. Lentils help lower cholesterol, stabilize blood sugar and contain protein and B vitamins.

From readers’ kitchens

Bridgetown Finer Meats turkey salad. I enjoy chatting with Richard Hoehn and Brian Brogran about their famous turkey salad. For years, readers have asked me for a clone.

And for years, I get the same answer: a chuckled “no.” I respect that this recipe is proprietary but a while back, a reader wanted it to send to her daughter in the Navy, hoping the chef there could recreate what was her favorite turkey salad from home. Bridgetown softened up and gave me ingredients, but no amounts. They sell a whopping 300 pounds of it a week and make it several times so it’s always at the peak of freshness. I sent the information to Embeth B., who then sent it to her daughter. The reply I got was this: “With

your help, a recipe for a ‘close second’ was created and our daughter in the Navy says to her ‘it tastes like something from home’!” Of course it’s not the real deal, but close enough for her daughter to enjoy a taste of the West Side a long way from home.

Is It the Fountain of Youth for Aging Minds?

Pharmacist of the Year Makes Memory Discovery of a Lifetime ‘America’s Pharmacist,’ Dr. Gene Steiner, finds what he and his patients have been looking for – a real memory pill!

For years, pharmacists told disappointed patients that memory loss was inevitable. A new, drug-free cognitive formula may help improve mind, mood, and memory in as little as 30 days.

PHOENIX,ARIZONA — If Pharmacist of theYear, Dr. Gene Steiner, had a nickel for every time someone leaned over the counter and whispered, “Do you have anything that can improve my memory,” he would be a rich man today. It’s a question he’s heard countless times in his 45-year career. He has seen families torn apart by the anguish of memory loss and mental decline, a silent condition that threatens the independent lifestyle that seniors hold so dearly. In his years-long search for a drug or nutrient that could slow mental decline, he finally found the answer, a natural, drug-free compound that helps aging brains ‘think and react,’ younger.

Tired Brains Snap Awake!

Pharmacist of the Year, Dr. Gene Steiner, PharmD, was so impressed with his newfound memory powers that he recommended the patented, prescription-free memory formula to his pharmacy patients with great success.

“It helps tired, forgetful brains to ‘snap awake,” says Dr. Steiner. Before Dr. Steiner recommended it to customers, he tried it first. “Within a few days, I can tell you without reservation that my memory became crystal clear!” “Speaking for pharmacists everywhere, we finally have something that we can recommend that is safe and effective.And you don’t need a prescription either!”

Kathryn J. Kleinert, 70, Miami Township, died March 7. She was a property manager. Survived by husband George Kleinert; sons Scott, Mark Kleinert; stepsons Guy, Greg Kleinert; siblings Eileen, Carol, Patricia, Todd, Roger, Ann, Linda; many nieces and nephews. Preceded in death by parents Bertha, Harold Moore. Services were March 13 at Evans Funeral Home.

Edward Osborne Edward B. Osborne, 94, Goshen Township, died March 20. He founded the Golden Donkey Dinner, a fundraiser for the Democratic Party, and was a former chairman of the Clermont Osborne County Board of Elections. He was an Army veteran, serving in the South Pacific, Korea and Japan. He was husband of the late Rosemary Osborne and a beloved father. Services were March 26 at Craver-Riggs Funeral Home. Memorials to: League for Animal Welfare, 4193 Taylor Road, Batavia, OH 45103.

John Sullivan John Francis Sullivan, 27, Miami Township, died March 21. Survived by parents Frank, Deborah Aston Sullivan; siblings Brian, Genevieve Sullivan; nephew Nicholas Barnes; grandfather Ocie Aston. Services were March 24 at St. Andrew Church. Arrangements by Evans Funeral Home. Memorials to: Goodwill Easter Seals for Miami Valley, The Miracle Clubhouse, 1511 Kuntz Road, Dayton, OH 45404.

“It became the best-selling brain health product in my pharmacy and customers were returning to thank me for introducing them to it.” Users like Selwyn Howell* agree. He credits the memory compound with bolstering his confidence. “It helped me speak out more than I used to. I am growing more confident every day.” Carey S.* reports, “I feel so much more focused and with the new energy I’m now ready to tackle the things I’ve been putting off for years!” Elizabeth K.* of Rochester, New York experienced a night-and-day difference in her mind and memory. At the age of 54, her memory was declining at an “alarming rate.” “I was about to consult a neurologist when I read a newspaper article about it.” “It took about a month for the memory benefit to kick in. Six months later, even my husband was impressed with my improved memory.And I am very happy with my renewed mental clarity and focus!” “I highly recommend it,” says Dr. Steiner. “This drug-free compound is the perfect supplement for increasing one’s brain power. If it worked for me, it can work for you!”
