Past popular parade participants have included the Goshen Horse Thief Detectives, complete with a jail wagon with prisoners that’s a throwback to the19th century. Talk show host Jerry Springer also rode in the parade in the early 80s, “back in the day when he was a channel 5 news anchor who was very good at commentaries,” Allen recalled. At the May 13 meeting of the Goshen Township Board of Trustees, Allen issued an open invitation to anyone who wants to take part in the Memorial Day parade. “You can call me or just show up,” Allen said. “Lineup is at 9 a.m. and it starts at 10 a.m. at Marr Cook Elementary. It’s nothing fancy, nothing hard. I’ll tell you where to go. But if you’re a horse, you’re in the back.” Want to continue the conversation? Tweet at @CindyLSchroeder.

The second Grailville Local Fest celebrating the local food, art and music of Loveland, is set Saturday, May 24. In the inaugural outdoor celebration at Grailville one year ago, Morgan Lyn, marketing and programming associate for Grailville, expected about 300 people. Instead, more than 600 people showed up to sample local food, music, and art of the 32 vendors on hand.

For now, there’s one last Memorial Day parade to organize. This year’s event will feature Goshen Township native Bill Smith, an Army veteran who married his high school sweetheart and went on to serve as the township’s service director for 30 years before retiring in 2004.

“I expect 1,200-1,500, but I’d like to see 1,500-1,700 people on the property,” Lyn said. “We’ve doubled the vendors. Last year we had around 32. This year we have 70.” Lyn feels vendors like Grateful Grahams and Gorman Heritage Farm are an attractive draw for people who live in the area. Turner Farm and Granny’s Garden along with many other local food vendors like grass fed Bones Burgers and exclusive Mad Tree Brewing will be on hand to treat taste buds and

“These younger folks know more about Facebook and all that social media stuff,” Allen said. “I’m one of those guys who’s lost in the 50s. I have an old phone booth by my garage and old gas pumps. I like to get out in the evenings and play all my music from the 50s and 60s.”

Passage of levy May 6 will keep Milford fire department on track MILFORD — Passage of a fire and emergency medical services levy May 6 means the city will begin collecting revenue in January 2015 that will help keep services at their current level. That’s according to Milford Mayor Laurie Howland, who said the strong “yes” vote to a three-year, 12.5-mill fire and EMS levy is a tribute to the professionalism of the Milford Community Fire Department and evidence that residents appreciate it. “I am grateful that the levy passed and the Milford Community Fire Department will be able to continue its high level of service,” Howland said. “I believe the residents know, trust and depend on the Milford Community Fire Department, which is why they voted in favor of the levy. “The Milford Community Fire Department has proven its commitment to the community with everything it does and the residents appreciate that,” Howland said. The 12.5-mill fire and EMS levy approved by Milford voters includes a renewal levy of 10.5 mills and a new levy of 2 mills. “The levy was needed to continue daily operations of the Milford Community Fire Department,” Howland said. “We had a levy in place which expired and needed to be renewed. “Due to a decline in revenue the previous levy generated, there was a (millage) increase with this levy,” Howland said. Unofficial results from the Clermont County Board of Elections show 556 people- just over 79 percent of the voters – voted yes for the levy and 144 people – or nearly 21 percent of the voters – voted no. Unofficial results from the Hamilton County Board of Elections show two people in the small portion of Milford that is in Hamilton County voted in the election and both voted against the levy.

BECAUSE COMMUNITY MATTERS

Allen to organize one last Memorial Day parade year’s annual Memorial Day parade in Goshen Township will mark the end of an era. After more than 30 years of organizing the parade, 71-yearold Jim Allen swears this year will be his last. Really. “I may have said I was stepping down before, but this time I really mean it,” Allen said. “I’m working harder now than when I drove a tractor trailer for a living,” the retired truck driver and former Goshen Township trustee said. No one recalls exactly when Goshen’s Memorial Day parade began, but most agree that Allen’s name has practically become synonymous with the event. Allen, who restores classic Fords, often can be found driving his 1956 black Thunderbird convertible in the region’s parades. “We’re thrilled that Jim has taken this on,” said Goshen Township Fiscal Officer Cheryl Allgeyer. “It’s a lot of work, but he’s done this for years and years, and he does a fabulous job. It’s hard to imagine anyone else organizing this event.” Although the Memorial Day parade is still a popular event, participation has slipped somewhat in recent years. Allen thinks a community organization should be responsible for the township’s Memorial Day observance because its members would know more individuals and groups who might participate.

Whistle Stop Clay Works ‘Empty Bowls’ will help feed the hungry By Chuck Gibson loveland@communitypress.com

Whistle Stop ClayWorks is sponsoring the first “Empty Bowls” benefit for Loveland InterFaith Effort (LIFE) food pantry during Local Fest at Grailville in Loveland Saturday, May 24. Whistle Stop ClayWorks hopes this benefit will bring greater awareness and community support to aid the Loveland food pantry in feeding the hungry. While this is the first “Empty Bowls” benefit specific to the Love-

land community, these events have been happening nationally since the first one in Detroit, Michigan, in 1994. Tim O’Grady, co-owner of the ClayWorks, became aware of the organized effort through the Cincinnati Clay Alliance annual sponsorship of an Empty Bowls event for the Freestore Food Bank. Last year they raised about $35,000 for the children’s food bank. “It’s an organization that ceramic artists and potters can affiliate with,” O’Grady said.

“They run small benefits where the potters themselves create the empty bowls and sell them at a venue with the profits going to a food-based charity.” Over the years, chapters of potters and ceramic artists have supported these empty bowl events all around the country. An empty hand-crafted bowl has become the icon to remind us of families, especially children, with empty bowls on their tables. In exchange for a cash donation, patrons get to keep the bowl. Often a meal of bread and soup is offered to those who purchase a bowl. All the proceeds go to charity. “We were thinking we have people in need within our own community,” O’Grady said. “We have artists and some students that are certainly willing to put their time, energy, and expertise into doing this to help the hungry in our own community.” Local Fest at Grailville was an obvious choice for Tim and his wife Kay Bolin-O’Grady, who needed a venue for the “Empty Bowls” event. They were part of Local Fest last

year at Grailville. It was run nicely, well-attended for a first-year festival, and operates as a nonprofit organization. Over the last few months, instructors, artists, and students have been crafting the bowls at ClayWorks in Loveland. “We hope to have 200 bowls,” Tim O’Grady said. They feel it is “the right and good thing to do.” The bowls will sell for $12.00 each during the Local Fest. That’s $2,400 for L.I.F.E. with 100 percent of proceeds going to the food pantry to feed the hungry. All the time, labor, and materials are contributed by the O’Grady’s through Whistle Stop ClayWorks, or by the individual artists themselves. “It’s really great to be helping out with such a good cause,” said Kay Bolin-O’Grady, co-owner of the ClayWorks with Tim. “We are excited to be involved in the new venture.” Tim is already talking to local Loveland restaurant owners about how they could get involved. “This event would not be possible without the support of our community, and the local clay artists,” he said. “It’s really

gratifying. The reason ClayWorks is here is for the community.” Both he and Kay bubble with enthusiasm at the notion of growing the ‘Empty Bowls’ event here into something that could be so much more. Tim talks about growing the donations to $10,000 to $15,000 or more; and not just donations, but buying

shares in the sustainable crops in the community for those in need of food. Their idea is to do more than fill 200 empty bowls. “I’m very hopeful that we’re going to be successful,” Tim O’Grady said. “This will lay the groundwork for something that could grow into something a lot more meaningful.”

Levy

fire and EMS levy will be used to pay operating costs to maintain staffing levels and to pay for the loan on the fire station at 687 U.S. Highway 50 in Milford. “Large dollar pieces of equipment are not purchased often for the Milford Community Fire Department, but there are many smaller pieces of equipment that need to be replaced more frequently,” Wright said. The Clermont County Auditor’s Office estimates the levy will increase the annual cost of fire and EMS services to Milford homeowners in the following amounts based on the assessed value of their homes – which is 35 percent of the homes’ market value. Taxes on homes with a market value of: » $50,000 will increase

from about $161 to $196. » $100,000 will increase from about $322 to $392. » $200,000 will increase from about $643 to $783. » $300,000 will increase from about $965 to $1,175. John Cooper Sr., chief of the Milford Community Fire Department, said he is “very, very, very grateful” that voters approved the levy. “The city has always taken care of us and I think residents appreciate the services we provide and our involvement in community activities,” Cooper said. “We try to go above and beyond.” Want to know more about what is happening in Milford?

gether to find out.” Lyn knows people really like the local food and that will be one of the largest draws. It’s also the local artists. “I didn’t really even know how many places are doing such amazing work,” she said. “I think it’s both the food and the art component.” Among the artists and craftsman this year will be the works of Earthy Bird Artistic Collectibles, Tony Dotson Art, Greenhouse Pottery, and Whistle Stop ClayWorks featuring the “Empty Bowls” benefit to help feed the hungry. Then there’s the music. “Not to forget the

“Comet Bluegrass All Stars, they’re pretty fantastic too,” Lyn said. They’re an award-winning local bluegrass band. They’ve opened for bands such as the popular Ricky Skaggs, Del McCoury, and Sam Bush. Yes food, art, and music, but especially on the grounds of Grailville. Food is grown there, it’s beautiful nature and that just brings it all together for Lyn. “This will be a day spent recognizing the green grass in our backyards and celebrating the community we live in,” she said.

“We are very relieved that the levy was successful,” Milford City Manager Jeff Wright said. “The city administration and the Milford Community Fire Department know that our residents expect us to be good stewards of their tax dollars so that they receive the highest level of safety services for the most reasonable amount possible. “I think that the appreciation that I have for the women and men who work and volunteer at the Milford Community Fire Department was echoed by the overwhelming support from the residents,” Wright said.

Monroe artists work to save

RAINFORESTS

N

ew Richmond’s Monroe Elementary Art & Earth Club artists worked to raise money for the Rainforest Alliance’s Adopt-a-Rainforest program as part of their Earth Day celebration. “The students learned about deforestation and the problems this causes the surrounding ecosystems and they learned how the Rainforest Alliance works to help stop the deforestation and restore the rainforests to healthy ecosystems,” Monroe Elementary visual arts teacher Adrian Hawk said. Club members designed buttons to sell to their friends and family. Through

the selling of the buttons, the AEC members were able to raise awareness and inform others of the devastating happenings within the Earth’s rainforests. “Everyone who purchased a button wore them on Earth Day to show their love and support for our Earth. The grand total of money raised by the AEC members for the Rainforest Alliance’s Adopt-a-Rainforest program was $380.16,” Hawk said. The project was organized by Monroe’s student teacher Emily Clyburn, an art education major at Northern Kentucky University.

Milford/Great Oaks students make mark at state conference

Students in the Great Oaks Teaching Professions Academy at Milford High School made themselves known recently at the Ohio Future Educators of America (FEA) state conference, winning 16 competition awards and earning group recognition with the FEA Honor Chapter Distinction. Emily Kozel won first place

The Teaching Professions Academy is a satellite program of Great Oaks Career Campuses, located at Milford High School.

Milford High School seniors David Hacker, left, and Brennan Perkins teamed for the sectional doubles tournament for the Eagles.MARK D. MOTZ/THE COMMUNITY PRESS

Perkins said it’s a team sport, but it’s individualized. “Even with a doubles partner, it’s at least 50 percent on you. You have to do your part.” Smalley had a entirely senior roster with the exception of sophomore Logan Chrislip. With the experienced roster came high expectations. “We had such bright things happen, just never at the same time,” she said. “An individual match here and a team score there, it might have been different. “The story of our season was weather and injuries. We didn’t get to play a lot matches consecutively

early on and get in a rhythm. And then we started having injuries. You have to give credit. It’s a tough league and even though I felt like nobody in the league was that much better than us, we had a few bad breaks and didn’t win it.” Perkins and Hacker said they hoped the sectional tournament would be a time of redemption. “It’s our last chance to go out and show what we can do,” Hacker said. Added Perkins, “It’s going to be our chance to go out and beat some of the teams that beat us before. It’s time for a little revenge.”

HIGH SCHOOL | YOUTH | RECREATIONAL

MILFORD — If the tennis is as good as the repartee, things should work out well. Milford High School head coach Claire Smalley paired seniors Brennan Perkins and David Hacker together at first doubles late in the season and sent them into Division I sectional action together May 13. “Coach has been trying stuff all season with the lineup,” Perkins said. “She just thought we had the highest propensity of winning some matches together.” Hacker asked with a cocked eyebrow, “Propensity? Did you just say ‘propensity?’” “Yeah, it’s a $10 word,” Perkins replied. “I think it sounds good.” Smalley said their pairing - both had played with several other partners and bounced between first and second doubles during the course of the season - sounded good to her. “We’ve had many reshufflings and trying to find the best combinations,” Smalley said. “Sectionals is all about how they can gel together in a short amount of time. I think this combinations gives us a good chance. It’s relatively new, so it’s more of just see how they do together under pressure. “They both have strong strokes. When Brennan is at the net, he’s very tough. They’re both big hitters. They complement each other well. ” Even if the compliment is - pardon the pun - backhanded. “He’s a beast at the net because he’s big and he’s got long arms” Hacker said of Perkins. “He’s scary looking up there.” With an eyebrow cocked similarly to Hacker’s earlier, Perkins asked his partner, “Scary looking?” “Yeah, but you’re fun to play with,” Hacker answered. Perkins said the same of Hacker. “He’s got amazing ground strokes and he can read what I’m doing very well without me even having to say anything,” Perkins said. “That’s a great feeling.” Perkins is the more experienced of the two, taking up the game in seventh grade on a whim. Hacker started playing as a sophomore when some of his friends decided to give it a try. Both have similar reasons for liking the game, especially playing doubles. “You have somebody to rely on,” Hacker said. “It’s easier to get motivated and get up when you have somebody there pushing you.”

College basketball

» Former McNicholas High School point guard Geoff Hensley Jr. was named head basketball coach at Thomas College in Maine. Hensley had most recently served as an assistant and recruiting coordinator at Center College in Danville, Ky.

Clermont Northeastern High School senior pitcher Nick Tipton knows a hacker when he sees one. Tipton – a first-team all-Southern Buckeye Conference selection for the Rockets - plans to study computer science at Mount Union College, where he will also play baseball next season. He will concentrate in forensics and cyber security. “I already do a lot of that stuff on my own,” he said of preventing hackers. “It’s just interesting to me.” CNE head baseball coach and athletic director Mike Kirk said Tipton’s matriculation to Mount Union is a good fit. “Size-wise and program-wise, he’s going to fit in very well there,” Kirk said. “But more importantly, they have the academic programs he wanted. He understands that’s his first priority. “He’s a hard worker and a smart player on the mound. He’s a baseball player. He’s an athletic kid and we definitely take advantage of that when he’s not pitching. (Tipton also plays outfield for the Rockets.) If he’d have stuck with soccer or basketball, he would have been one of our best in those sports, too.” While Tipton played both soccer and hoops growing up, baseball has always been his first love. He began playing at age 5. He taught himself how to throw a curve ball at age 13, a pitch he said has become his best. (“That’s probably because he doesn’t give enough credit to his changeup,” Kirk said.) He played up with his older brother - CNE grad Nathan Tipton from the class of 2011 - in select ball. The two got to play together for the Rockets when Nathan was a senior and Nick a freshman, which Nick said was special for both of them. Kirk said some his most special memories of Tipton on the field came last season when he threw a no-hit game against Taylor in the second round of the sectional tournament and followed it up with a compete-game win over top-seeded Wyoming in the sectional title game. Now as a senior himself, Nick likes the leadership aspect of the game. “Going out on the field and leading my team defensively on the mound and making sure every player keeps his head in the game is great,” he said. “It’s all-around just my favorite sport. I feel more comfortable on the diamond than I do on any other field or court. “Each time you get that last strikeout to end a game is a great feeling. And it’s one that you can have over and over, not just once. There’s always another game.” Even when your high school career is coming to a close. “I’m glad I’ve had the chance to mature with all the years of high school baseball,” Tipton said. “In a way I will always be emotionally attached to this place, but the road doesn’t end here. I’m grateful for that.” Rain postponed CNE’s first game in the Division III sectional tournament Bethel-Tate May 14. The Rockets and Tigers were scheduled to try again May 16. Whenever it’s played, the winner advances to face either top-seeded Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy or East Clinton in a game scheduled for 5 p.m. May 21 at the Summit Country Day athletic complex. “We’re looking forward to it,” Kirk said. “That’s the beauty of baseball. Anything can happen in one game.” Clermont Northeastern High School senior pitcher Nick Tipton throws in a March 21 scrimmage against Summit Country Day. MARK D. MOTZ/THE COMMUNITY PRESS

Rocket baseball takes family approach to success By Mark D. Motz mmotz@communitypress.com

MT.

WASHINGTON

Sister Sledge sang about it. The Pittsburgh Pirates adopted it. The McNicholas High School baseball team lives it now. Some 35 years after Willie Stargell and Pirates made “We Are Family” a baseball anthem, the McNick team is chock full of second-generation Rockets, many of whose fathers once played with head coach John Christmann. Christmann - a 1985 McNick grad - is a second generation Rocket himself; his mom is long-time school nurse Mary Anne Christmann, class of 1956. He enjoys the family atmosphere on his team. “It means a lot to me as a coach,” he said. “It’s eas-

ier to talk to the parents when they already know me, when they know what I’m about. It’s always good to have that kind of support from your baseball families.” Among the players, sophomore Ryan Byrne’s dad Bobby Byrne was Christmann’s classmate and teammate in baseball and football. Likewise sophomore pitcher Sam Browning’s dad is Mike Browning (’86). Sophomore pitcher Chris Clark is the son of 1984 grads Mike Clark and the former Linda Dulle. Senior Will Mehring, junior Logan Jacobs and sophomore Will Vogelgesang also have McNick grads for parents. (Full disclosure: Jacobs’ father Mike (McNick ‘87) was a teammate of your humble scribe on some of the

worst District 5 Knothole teams ever assembled in the 1970s. “He doesn’t get (his talent) from his old man,” the elder Jacobs said of his son earlier in the spring.) All have played key roles for the 2014 McNick team. Byrne is the everyday catcher. Browning leads the squad and is second in the Greater Catholic League Coed with an 0.86 earned-run average. Clark has 11 strikeouts in eight innings of relief work while picking up a pair of saves. Mehring hits .375 and is tied for the team lead with 16 runs batted in. Vogelgesang hits .344 and owns a teambest 12 stolen bases. Jacobs has become a reliable clutch hitter and aggressive base runner. He drove in the tying run

when the Rockets trailed Hughes 1-0 in the fourth inning during the opening round of the Division II sectional tournament May 13. He doubled in the go-ahead run his next time up in the sixth. He came home with an insurance run on Mehring’s hit in a 3-1 Rockets victory. “Your main thought is to sit back on the ball and hit line drives,” Jacobs said. “Only good things can happen when you hit line drives.” Jacobs started playing ball at age 6 and hit his first legitimate over-thefence home run as a sixth grader at Tealtown Park. The Union Township resident said he’s always loved the game. “I can’t even describe it,” he said. “It’s just fun. It’s a good place to escape. You don’t have to worry

Miami Twp.’s conservative budgeting to continue This year – 2014 – appears to be a turning point for local governments. It appears the state funding cuts are complete and local governments are now operating in the new economic normal. A consistent, conservative financial approach to Ken Tracy COMMUNITY PRESS budgeting and spending has GUEST COLUMNIST allowed Miami Township to weather the economic storm better than many other local governments. Not that we were not affected. Reductions to the Local Government Fund and the elimination of the Estate Tax caused the general fund to lose

close to $1,000,000 and the service department to lose $600,000 in annual revenue. Although impacted, the other departments were not as severely affected. A snapshot of Miami Township’s budget will show that 68 percent of the total budget is labor costs. The number should not be a surprise since Miami Township is a service organization and those services are provided by people, such as police officers, Fire/EMS personnel, service department personnel and recreation personnel. So how did we control these costs? Between 2009 and 2014 Miami Township’s staff was reduced by 11 percent through attrition, yet we still continued to provide high quality service to our residents.

Departments reallocated resources and redistributed responsibilities among their staff. In 2012, the township increased the health insurance deductible paid by our employees in order to control increases in our insurance premiums. In addition to controlling direct labor costs the township also deferred capital expenditures over the past five years, in order to ensure sufficient funds were available for operations. During this time period all departments worked to extend the life of their vehicles and equipment. Increased attention to preventive maintenance helped extend the replacement schedule. These extended replace-

ment schedules will remain in place. The township also started using its tax increment finance funds for the purchase of safety service capital equipment and vehicles. This freed up operating funds in the police and fire department. All of these measures directly contributed to decreasing the township operating budget from $19,250,000 in 2012 to $18,900,000 in 2014. Although the economy is beginning to improve, our conservative approach to budgeting will continue. The opening of a temporary, satellite fire/EMS station off SR 131 was predicated on staffing and equipping the station with the confines of the 2014 budget.

Volunteer with Clermont Senior Services Each year in April, the nation celebrates National Volunteer Week as a way of acknowledging and thanking those people who do extraordinary things through service to others. This recognition was established in 1974 and focuses on the impact and power of volunteerism as a fundamental aspect of civic engagement and one of the most significant factors in what is great about America. The impact of volunteerism is far-reaching. For Clermont Senior Services, a not-for-profit organization, it means that we are able to serve many more people with many more services. For the citizens of this community who responsibly and honorably support the levy that provides for services for seniors in Clermont County, it is a way that this organization can leverage the funds of taxpayers through those who give so generously of their time, energy and talent. In 2013, 306 volunteers contributed 23,693 hours of their time to support the services Clermont Senior Services provides. I look at the

number of individual volunteers and the number of hours of service they provided, and I’m absolutely amazed. Better yet, the good news, and I’m always looking for the good news, is that this was actually an increase over the 22,118 hours provided in 2012. Actually, one of the very first ways I was introduced to Clermont Senior Services was because of the volunteer programs. When my daughter, Staci, was about 2 years old, my mother began taking her when she delivered meals-onwheels in the Amelia area. In fact, they “worked” as volunteers more than a year before I came to “real” work for the agency in 1983. The life lessons in caring and compassion that Staci gained through that experience with my mom played a tremendous role in making her the amazing woman she is today. And, it is also the reason that many young mothers and fathers volunteer. They want to expose their children to a way of giving back and doing good for others. I was truly blessed that my mother made this same commitment with my daughter. When you equate those hours into

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Prayers go up - blessings come down

On Thursday, May 1, we met on the courthouse steps in downtown Batavia to pray for our nation. God blessed us with dry skies after days of rain. As Ole Glory waved in the wind, patriotic hymns echoed thru the deserted streets. We thank our soloists, John Hale, Jennifer Thomas, Petra Bradley, Todd and Jenny Kritzwiser. A special thanks to our ‘sound man’ Pastor John Martin. Emcee Bob Proud introduced the elected officials who did Bible readings: Sheriff Tim Rodenberg, Tim Rudd, State Rep. Doug Green. Prayers went up for our country, our military, our county, our community and our children. We honored our vets and “hometown heroes” with applause and standing ovation as we thanked them for their service. Thanks to the area pastors who prayed for them. Before the noon service a bountiful brunch was served by the Eastgate Community Church for our elected officials, area pastors, their guests, vets from their church. In closing prayers were asked for Kevin Long, who has been deployed for his first tour of duty in Afghanistan. While “Taps” played, not only did it echo thru the streets, but in our hearts as we remembered the high price paid for freedom here in the “land of the free and home of the brave.”

real dollar cost, it clearly demonstrates the value that volunteers provide to services like meals-onwheels, shopping, home repair, and special events, projects and activities provided right here in Clermont County. In the State of Ohio, the estimated value of volunteer time for 2013 was $21.40 an hour. This is considered the average of varying levels of positions when placing a dollar equivalent on the generous gift of time given by volunteers. For Clermont Senior Services and for the taxpayers in Clermont County, this represents the equivalent of $507,030.20. And, what does it mean to the seniors we serve today? It isn’t the dollar equivalent, but the smile and the caring way in which the volunteers work to help them remain living in their own homes and in the neighborhood and community they love. If you would like to volunteer and serve seniors in Clermont County, contact the Volunteer Manager, Jeanne Siegel at 536-4021 or jsiegel@clermontseniors.com. Cindy Jenkins Gramke is the executive director/CEO of Clermont Senior Services

CH@TROOM May 14 question What advice would you give to graduating high school and college seniors?

“I do not envy today’s graduates due to the decreasing job market in the US. So many jobs have been moved abroad and robots and computers have replaced many others. Plus the competition is tougher than ever and many talented people are underemployed. “College is not the automatic job qualifier it was many years ago and it is also very pricey. For those graduating high school they should be sure that college is what they really want to do at this time. “A 2-4 year stint in the armed forces could add some maturing and finances for college or end up being that career after all.

“Without question the thing that bothers me most about other drivers is not maintaining assured clear distance ahead (tailgating). I was taught to maintain a distance of one car length for each 10 mph, adding at least an additional length or more for slippery pavement. Not too many folks follow that rule. “It’s not surprising that there are so many rear end collisions. It drives me crazy when someone is following so close that I can’t see their headlights or grill in my rearview mirror.”

We will continue our partnership with the County Transportation Improvement District leveraging millions of dollars in roadway improvements that the township could never afford on its own. We want to thank the citizens of Miami Township for supporting our conservative approach to funding local government services. You have told us through word of mouth and surveys that you are very satisfied with the services you receive from the township. We are committed, even with reduced resources, to provide our residents with quality and responsive service. Ken Tracy is a Miami Township trustee and Eric Ferry is Miami Township’s fiscal officer.

Recorder’s office best place to get your documents A recent increase in calls regarding the cost for obtaining a “certified” copy of a property owners deed made me aware of a property deed scheme occurring in Clermont County. National Deed Service, Registered Property Services and other companies are sending residents letters, offering to get them certified copies of their property deeds. In most cases, a property owner already has a copy of their deed, provided at closing when they purchased their property. The deed is a public record and is available at the Recorder’s Office. These companies are privately held companies, not attached to any government agency. They may have stated the importance of having a certified copy of the deed to your property or quoted the U.S Government Federal Citizens Information Center website. These services also quote a hefty price of $60, $80 and more to obtain a copy of your deed for you. Although this may not be illegal, you will be paying a significantly higher amount for a record than you would pay by requesting a copy from the recorder’s office yourself. As your county recorder, I would like to let you know the real cost of getting a certified copy of your deed, mortgage or other recorded documents. It is $2 per page and $1 to apply the certification stamp and seal. The staff of the recorder’s office can do this while you wait. You walk in and walk right out with a certified copy of your document. The average deed is three pages, the total cost of a certified copy would be $7. You will save all the time and hassle of filling out forms, mailing them in and waiting for the delivery of your certified copy. You may also access our records and get a copy free of charge through our website at: recorder.clermontcountyohio.gov and accessing our online record site at: www.uslandrecords.com . Q. What do you need to know to obtain a copy of your documents? A. The township where your property is located, the date you purchased your property and your name. Q. Can I get a copy of my mortgage and what do I need to know? A. Again, we need to know your name, township and date of your mortgage. Q. What other documents are recorded? A. Besides deeds and mortgages the recorder receives: powers of attorney, mortgage releases, assignments of mortgages, federal tax liens, homeowners association liens, Ohio job and family services liens and some leases. Q. Is an appointment necessary? A. No you can come in during normal business hours: 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Deborah Hall Clepper is the Clermont County recorder.

Rita shares salads for picnic season We usually start Memorial Day out with my family, going to Mass at St. Philomena church in Clermont County. The church is a beautiful small church, built in the 1830s. The Mass is held outdoors, Rita weather Heikenfeld permitting. RITA’S KITCHEN Afterwards, there’s a gun salute to the fallen veterans and the parishioners serve everyone breakfast. We visit my parents’ graves there and put vases of fresh flowers on them. The grandkids help me plant sprigs of my heirloom mint around the graves, as well. It’s a meaningful tradition. I know many of you celebrate Memorial Day this way, whether remembering a fallen veteran, family or friends. Memorial Day is the

official day for picnic season, too, and these recipes are some of my all time favorites.

Sandy’s broccoli cauliflower salad with tangy yogurt dressing. My neighbor, Sandy Shelton, brought a dish of this over. Oh my gosh, it was so good. It’s a yummy salad with the tanginess of the dressing offset by the sweetness of the grapes. Wouldn’t this be a nice take-along for a Memorial Day picnic? Now if you want my traditional buffet broccoli salad with a Marzetti like dressing, check out my website abouteating.com. It’s a keeper, too.

Salad:

6-8 slices bacon, cooked and diced 1/2 head each: cauliflower and broccoli, cut into small florets 2 cups seedless red grapes, halved, or more to taste - I used more

1/3 cup diced red onion, or more to taste 1/2 cup chopped pecans, or more to taste 1 small English cucumber, diced (you may not need all) Shredded cheddar cheese.

Dressing:

If your cauliflower and broccoli are real large, double the dressing - you may not need all of it but it’s good on slaw, too. Whisk together: 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt 1/2 cup real mayonnaise 1/3 cup red wine vinegar 1 tablespoon sugar 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme Salt and pepper to taste Pour dressing over salad ingredients and enjoy.

requested by my readers a lot this time of year. Don’t be put off by the long list of ingredients. It’s easy to make. Oh, and did I mention, most folks come back for seconds it’s that good. 1 package 8-1/2 ounces corn bread/ muffin mix; one can, four ounces chopped green chilies, undrained - mild or spicy; one teaspoon cumin; 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano; one cup each: mayonnaise and sour cream; one envelope ranch salad dressing mix; two cans, 15 ounces each Great Northern beans, drained or a combo of your favorite; three cups corn; three good sized tomatoes, chopped; one bell pepper, chopped; one bunch green onions, chopped, white and green part both; one pound bacon, cooked and crum-

bled; three generous cups shredded cheddar cheese. Prepare corn bread according to package directions, stirring in chilies, cumin and oregano. Pour into sprayed 8-inch pan. Bake at 400 for 20 minutes or until done. Cool. Combine mayonnaise, sour cream and dressing mix; set aside. Crumble half the cornbread into a 9x13 casserole. Layer with half of the rest of the

ingredients and repeat layers, ending with cheese. Cover and refrigerate for two hours or more. Serves 10-12.

Batavia Theatre Project auditions are May 23-24 The Batavia Theatre Project, a new professional theater in Batavia, is hosting auditions for their summer season Friday, May 23, and Saturday, May 24. Auditions are 4-8 p.m. Friday and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday in village council chambers, 389 E. Main St. in downtown Batavia. Potential actors of all ages should expect to do cold readings from a Shakespearian play as well as at least one modern play. Actors should have a Shakespearian monologue or poem prepared to demonstrate a grasp of the language. Memorized monologues are preferred, but they may be read. Performers may be

asked to sing a few bars of music a capella, and those with musical ability are encouraged to bring their instruments. “We are very excited to be bringing this opportunity to Batavia and Clermont County,” Theater President Adam Haskell said. “We are looking forward to a large local turnout at the auditions.” This summer, the theater will produce shows in conjunction with the Batavia Bicentennial celebration, will use Sycamore Park to present Shakespeare in the Park and is working to secure a suitable indoor location to

present more modern works. “Batavia has a long and vibrant history of arts and community activities,” Haskell said. “We believe that a little nudge will rekindle the fire that once burned brightly for the arts in our community.” The Batavia Theatre Project is deeply rooted in its community and wants to make Batavia a destination for lovers of the arts. The group is seeking financial donations as well as donations of time, materials and labor. Those interested in getting involved or volunteering can connect with the Batavia Theatre Project through Facebook, by emailing BataviaTheatreProject@gmail.com, or online at www.BataviaTheatreProject.com.

Clogged gutters on house, sweet rhubarb all part of a busy week Howdy folks; Last week we needed to clean the gutters of the house. We have a big maple tree, close to the house, so the seeds had filled the eve trough. When it rained last week the water ran over the sides of the gutter. The hole where the drain pipe is, was blocked up. When I get on the ladder, Ruth Ann is holding it for me, so I got them cleaned. Our rhubarb is some

of the best we have ever had, so Ruth Ann asked if I would pull some, so she and I went and George pulled Rooks some. She OLE FISHERMAN made a pie and took it to the auction 360 for the Grange bake sale, and Bill bought it. He said that was the best pie, and I think he would

maybe like another one. Now Chester has a plan. Each morning he starts meowing so we let him outside, for a while, he doesn’t come in when we call him. If I get the lawnmower out, he will make a bee line to the house. That is his protection, so when the neighbor lady starts to mow, here he comes. Ruth Ann likes to crochet on an afghan, so the spool of yarn is laying on the couch or floor. Well, Chester likes to grab the yarn and run with it. The other evening he ran into the next room. Ruth Ann said, to me, “Go get it,” so while I was laughing I caught Chester, and he looked at me like ‘What Is Wrong!” The other morning we weighed him and he weighs eight pounds, he will be a big cat, when we are away and we come home, he is so excited, he runs through the house. We like to sleep a little later sometimes, but each morning Chester wants his breakfast, early, then starts begging to go outside. It is amazing how they train us. We had a meeting at the Owensville Historical Society last week, then went to the nursing home to see my brother, Herb. He has been in the home since our sister in law, Inez, had a stroke and then passed away. We sure miss the company and fine meals she prepared. We loved her dearly. Now today, we go to the Senior Citizens, over at the Lodge, at the Senior Center, on James Sauls Drive, and talk for a while to the folks. We enjoy the time we spend with them and the stories they tell me about their animals. Some have parrots that talk, that is interesting. There are some that don’t want Ruth Ann and me to leave, I always talk to most of them and always go around and shake each hand. This day we go they seem to really enjoy the stories, I tell and try to ask questions of them, on how it was when they were young, and what they did for play. Some of the stories are so interesting, it makes you realize how a person can drum up activites to entertain themselves, back in the early years, of their lives. We were working in the garden the other day,

and when we were coming in to eat the noon meal, I said for Ruth Ann to come out on the porch, to see a big black snake that was almost three feet long. It was sure pretty and clean, so I encouraged it to go on over to the tree and get away from the porch. It got close to a patch of flowers and went into hide. They are God’s Creatures, so we don’t harm them, we noticed last fall, we had a snake in our carpenter shop, we have had one in a few years ago, too. The garden is doing good, we have tomato plants, cucumbers, squash, lettuce, (three kinds), potatoes, carrots, peppers, spinach, broccoli, peas and cabbage. The asparagus is starting to do good. The strawberries are blooming good, we hope we can keep the wild turkeys from flying in and eating the berries, like they did last year. Now on Wednesday, May 21, the Clermont Chapter of the PERI will meet at 11:30 a.m. with a brown bag lunch and a guest speaker from the Clermont County Board of Elections. The meeting will be at the Batavia Township Hall on Clough Pike. Don’t forget on Memorial Day, at the Old Bethel Methodist Church, here in East Fork Park, will be a service before the Legion comes to the cemetery at 11 a.m. The program at the church will begin at 10 a.m., so come and enjoy. We need more members to help us keep this old church going. It is on the National Registry of Historical Buildings, so we need to keep it in good repair, and the memories of our ancestors who attended there, and are buried in that cemetery. The maternal grandparents of President U.S. Grant, are buried there. There will be services at different cemeteries, so go and honor the service people that have given their lives for our protection. 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.
