BECAUSE COMMUNITY MATTERS
Contract to demolish Green school building is approved By Keith BieryGolick
GOSHEN — School officials approved a contract to demolish Goshen’s first public school at their regular July 15 meeting. The gym attached to the Sheila Green school building, 6785 Goshen Road, began caving in and officials put a fence around it in May. The school board decided to tear it down at a special board meeting in June. Superintendent Darrell Edwards said there is a six-foot hole in the roof now. The building has been vacant for more than 10 years. Officials accepted a contract with O’Rourke Wrecking Company, best known for their demolition of Cinergy Field, for $226,000. The contract will be financed through a short-term loan and then paid for with per-
manent improvement funds, Edwards said. “It doesn’t come from money you could spend on books or salaries,” he said. “The contract includes the demolition of the gym, school building and old board office.” Officials received three bids for demolition, Edwards said. They chose O’Rourke Wrecking Company primarily because it offered the lowest price, but also because it is a quality company, he said. Board member Sue Steele said demolition was tentatively scheduled for Aug. 26. When the process begins, it will take about a month to complete, Edwards said. “Even though we can’t save the building, we can save the memories,” he said. Officials held a public meeting July 8 where ideas for memorializing the building were discussed. “The best part about that

night was getting the community involved,” said Brian Bailey, assistant superintendent. Steele suggested adding written history to the memorial so students knew why the building was celebrated. “There are two main ideas floating around,” Edwards said. “One is to build something with the bricks (from the old building) on our main campus
2013 FAIR ROYALTY
... something (the community) can see with their eyes.” The other is a scholarship, which could possibly be funded by the Alumni Association selling bricks, he said. Erwin Walker, a member of the Goshen Park Commission, attended the board meeting to suggest a few others ideas. “We’d like to request to have the water fountain be donated
to the park,” Walker said. “The park commissioners can rehab it and mount it in the (StaggeMarr Community) Park.” Walker also requested to cut down some of the building’s steel railing to use for the park’s Frisbee golf course. “With the fountain, I think we’re all in agreement - what a great place for it,” Edwards said. “I think we have to leave the rails up until the building is demolished.” Steele made a motion for the board to donate the water fountain to the park commissioners and check about the other items requested. “I think (the water fountain) is a great idea,” said George Rise, board member. “People are going to see it in the park.” Edwards said the board is still open to suggestions about memorializing the Sheila Green school building and will let the community know when more details are finalized.

STONELICK TWP. — Middle school principal Heather Powell is leaving Clermont Northeastern schools to become the high school principal in Williamsburg. Powell worked at CNE for 10 years, teaching at the high school until she accepted a job as the middle school principal five years ago. “It’s a mixed feeling,” Powell said. “I have absolutely loved my time at CNE. I am not leaving because it was a bad place to be.” CNE Superintendent Ralph Shell said officials will be conducting interviews for her replacement in the “next couple of weeks.” “As of right now, we have four internal candidates,” Shell said. “We’re not looking outside until we look inside. All four of them are good candidates.” Williamsburg Superinten-

dent Matthew Earley said he hated to see high school Principal Barry Daulton leave, but thought Powell “is going to come in and take the building to new
heights.” “She just has a vast knowledge of all the new standards, the Common Core, and how to blend technology into that,” Earley said. “She’s a strong leader, great at bringing teachers together.” Earley said he worked with Powell for three years at CNE as the high school principal when she was the middle school principal. “I’m very excited she was interested in the job,” he said. “She is a talented and experienced administrator.” Powell, who was approved by See POWELL, Page A2

Volunteers change Jackson’s world By Chuck Gibson
Imagine being 19 years old and you’ve never been fully immersed in water for a bath. That is the reality for Austin Jackson of Goshen. The effects of muscular dystrophy have left him dependent upon his mom and dad for many of life’s daily necessities; including taking a bath. That is, until now. Jackson is one of several people who received the help of teen volunteers from World Changers during the week of

July 8. People Working Cooperatively hosted 197 teens from World Changers to help with home repairs for19 different PWC clients. The teen volunteers, guided by adult chaperones, did the work at Jackson’s home necessary for PWC to install an accessible bathroom for Jackson. “It’s really amazing,” Jackson said “It’s really cool getting to see this all happen.” Jonathon Waggener is one of the World Changers volunteers who helped move Austin from his old bedroom to another bedroom. The teens painted the new bedroom his favorite color (green) and prepared his old room for renovations PWC will complete to make it an accessible bathroom. “They painted my room; it’s really nice in there. Now it’s green and I like green so we’re good,” said Jackson. “The porch ramp was rotten and falling apart before; now it’s a lot safer, looks better, and is all cleaned up.” Waggener, 12, spent most the week helping the volunteer team rebuild the porch ramp for Jackson. “We’ve been helping this family out; just doing it for God’s glory,” said Waggener. “This is my first time. It means everything to me. Some people don’t have what we have. I just want to give back.” Volunteers at the Jackson’s home came from five different states. Jamie Ratley came from St. Louis, Missouri, Jonathon

and his dad, Darren Waggener, came from Arkansas; while others working with them came from Mississippi, Tennessee, and Illinois. People Working Cooperatively is the agency World Changers is partnered with. “They help us to get supplies to work on these homes and they set up different homes like the Jackson family,” said Kaley Blankenship, World Changers media relations

representative. “They have been helping the Jackson family for over a year now.” PWC raised the funds to help the Jackson’s at their “Oscar Night Gala” in February. “We raised $35,000 for the Jacksons,” said Kim Sullivan, spokesperson for PWC. All the work done by World Changers volunteers during the week came from that fundraising effort. After the World Changers leave, the funds will be used by paid professional PWC staff members to install a modified bathroom and finish Austin’s bedroom. Austin will realize his dream to bathe himself and submerge his body in water. “The Jacksons are our family,” Sullivan said. “They came to us. We’ve been able to put all these pieces together. Fundraise to help them and then have World Changers come to do some of the labor.” When Kathy and Ron Jackson bought the house more than 19 years ago, Austin was not even born yet. In fact, he was celebrating his 19th birthday as World Changers finished up their work July 12. Sometimes it has been a struggle for his parents to meet his basic needs. The disease is debilitating and has taken a physical

toll on Kathy and Ron, too. Work done by World Changers and PWC will help relieve Jackson’s worries about his parents. “They’ve just been a real blessing to our family,” Kathy Jackson said. “It’s more than we could ever be able to buy ourselves for Austin. I talk about it and I start crying. They greatly change people’s lives.” The change is not complete. Sullivan said PWC will begin final construction on the bathroom conversion July 22. For now, World Changers completed their prep work at the Jackson’s Friday, July 12. During the week they
were there, Jackson made it a point to connect with each one personally. They left a lasting impression on him. “Just the fact that all these kids came out here and gave up some of their time to come do things like this; it truly is a blessing,” Jackson said. “I think it is a great example of God’s love for us. It is world changing. They’re all great, they’re all great. I love them all.” More on People Working Cooperatively at: www.pwchomerepairs.org More on World Changers at: www.world-changers.net

the Williamsburg Board of Education July 15, said joining the Williamsburg staff was an opportunity she couldn’t pass up. “It’s kind of like coming home in a way,” she said. “I love the Williamsburg community - I attend church there.” Powell went to Williamsburg schools from kindergarten through seventh-grade. Regardless, she said she is still very proud of her time at CNE. “They have the best staff, in my opinion, in the entire district,” Powell said. “I wish them the best as they continue to strive toward excellence.”

Williamsburg meeting about gas pipeline By Jeanne Houck firstname.lastname@example.org
WILLIAMSBURG — Two Lancaster attorneys are advertising a “Bluegrass Pipeline Landowner Group” meeting Tuesday, July 30, in Williamsburg for people who own property in Clermont and Brown counties where an underground pipeline for natural-gas liquids might cross through. And while some landowners elsewhere along the proposed “Bluegrass
Pipeline” route stretching from Pennsylvania to other places in the northeast United States and to the Gulf Coast have vowed to fight the project because of safety, environmental and property-value concerns, the landowner group set to meet in Williamsburg July 30 has yet yet to attract members and the attorneys forming it have no wish to stop the pipeline. “The goal of the landowners’ group is to negotiate for improved compen-
sation and to negotiate easements that better protect the affected farms and properties,” said lawyer Craig Vandervoort, who has teamed up with fellow attorney Steven Davis on the landowners initiative. “The goal of the group is not to stop or oppose the pipeline project,” Vandervoort said. The July 30 meeting will run from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the American Legion hall at 208 Main St. in Williamsburg.

The Williams company, an energy infrastructure business headquartered in Tulsa, Davis Oklahoma, and Boardwalk Pipeline Partners, a company that transports and stores natural gas and liquids with primary offices in Owensboro, Kentucky, and Houston, Texas, hope to have the pipeline operating by the end of 2015. The companies have a website at http:// bit.ly/17ykrGT with information about the pipeline and a link where people can submit questions. “Safety is our highest priority in the routing, construction and operation of Bluegrass Pipeline,” said Tom Droege, a Williams’ spokesman at its headquarters in Tulsa. “Williams, as the eventual operator of the Bluegrass Pipeline, is committed to protecting the public, the environment, our employees and contractors - and operating the Bluegrass facilities in
compliance with all applicable federal, state and local rules and regulations.” VanderVandervoort voort and Davis also have a website, bluegrasspipelinelawyers.com, where they say they have been providing landowners affected by pipelines with negotiation and litigation assistance since 1999, and that they currently are holding informational meetings across Ohio and Kentucky about the Bluegrass Pipeline. The Williamsburg meeting is the fourth they have hosted. “Over 150 landowners attended the first three (Bluegrass Pipeline) meetings,” Vandervoort said. “Following the landowner educational portion of the meeting, there is a public forum for landowner questions followed by a private question-andanswer session. “Landowners are not required to register, but
are welcome to contact the attorneys after the meeting if they wish to join the Bluegrass Pipeline lawyers group,” Vandervoort said. Asked how many people are in the ClermontBrown counties landowners group being organized by Vandervoort and Davis and where they are from, Vandervoort said, “Since the final route of the pipeline is months away from being identified, the landowner group is only in the preliminary stage of development. “Although many landowners join the group when they are approached by land agents requesting survey permission across their land, most landowners join the group once they are notified that the pipeline company wishes to purchase an easement across their property,” Vandervoort said. “The project cannot proceed unless right of way is acquired across the entire proposed route.” For more about your community, visit www.Cincinn ati.com/Williamsburg.

Young performers ready to present ‘Grease’ By Kurt Backscheider email@example.com
The Cincinnati Young People’s Theatre will perform the musical “Grease” at the Covedale Center for the Performing Arts from July 26 through Aug. 4. Molly O’Brien Peters, center, an alumna of the young people’s theater group, came back to choreograph the show. With her are cast members, from left, Kalie Kaimann, Montana Hatfield, Aaron Marshall and Macy Martin. KURT BACKSCHEIDER/THE COMMUNITY PRESS

West Price Hill — Kalie Kaimann and Aaron Marshall said audiences will enjoy the energy they see on stage when the Cincinnati Young People’s Theatre presents “Grease.” Kaimann, a Delhi Township teen who plays Sandy Olsen in the classic show, and Marshall, a Milford teen who portrays Danny Zuko, are among the roughly 80 teenagers who have been rehearsing this summer for the musical, which marks the Cincinnati Young People’s Theatre’s 31st annual production. Based at the Covedale Center for the Performing Arts, the Cincinnati Young People’s Theatre (CYPT) helps young performers between the ages of 13 and 19 hone their theater skills. Kaimann, a Seton High School junior who is in her fourth year with the program, said she was introduced to CYPT by her voice teacher. “I fell in love with it,” she said. “It’s the best summer program I’ve ever been involved in.” Marshall said this is his first year with the organization, and it’s a dream come true to play the leading male role. “I’ve always wanted to be in a production of ‘Grease,’” he said. “I just really love the theater, and I want to get into theater as a career.” Macy Martin, a Northern Kentucky native entering her sophomore

year at the University of Cincinnati, took a few years off from the program but said she had to return for her final year. She said CYPT is a great place for like-minded teens to grow as performers. “It’s an opportunity for young people to have a great experience and see how other young people work in the theater,” Martin said. “You see how others perform, you work together and learn from each other.” Because “Grease” features several dance numbers, director and CYPT founder Tim Perrino brought in an alumna of the program to choreograph the dance scenes. Molly O’Brien Peters, a Delhi Township native, said she performed in three CYPT shows when she was a teenager and she’s thrilled to be back helping a new generation of performers put on an entertaining show. “The energy I get from the kids is incredible,” she said, adding that she choreographed 10 dance routines for the production. “It’s a fun, high-energy show.” Since “Grease” is such an iconic show and so many people have seen the movie, Peters said the challenge has been incorporating its familiar
dance numbers with her own ideas and twists to make the choreography modern and relevant to today’s teens. “It’s been a lot of hard work, but so much fun,” she said. “And it’s worth it when you see your vision up on the stage and realized with the kids here. There is so much talent and I’m really excited.” Dancer Montana Hatfield, a Northern Kentucky resident entering her freshman year at Western Kentucky University, said this is her third year in CYPT and she couldn’t pass up the chance to be in “Grease.” “Who doesn’t love ‘Grease,’” she said. “I think when audiences see 80 very talented kids performing it on stage, they are going to be blown away.” Kaimann agreed with her fellow cast member. “The energy in this show is outstanding,” she said. “The audience has fun when the performers on stage are having fun, and we are definitely having fun.” The teens will present “Grease” from Friday, July 26, through Sunday, Aug. 4, at the Covedale theater, 4990 Glenway Ave. Tickets are $20 for gold seats, $14 for adults, $12 for senior citizens and college students and $10 for high school students and younger.

arm” a semi-automatic firearm that is designed or adapted to fire more than 31cartridges without reloading. “Ohio law includes a clause that defines a semiautomatic weapon as fully automatic when it carries more than 31rounds, but it is ridiculous to call any weapon ‘fully automatic’ based on an arbitrary magazine size,” Becker said. “An AR-15 rifle doesn’t suddenly become a machine gun by inserting a 40-round magazine.” Becker drafted the bill after hearing from constituents in his district. If enacted, House Bill 191 would align Ohio’s definitions of the firearms with those of federal law.
Becker bill could eliminate marriage tax penalty
State Rep. John Becker (R-65th District) has introduced legislation that would eliminate the marriage penalty in Ohio’s income tax system. House Bill 188 changes the way the joint filer tax credit is computed so married couples pay the same amount of tax on a joint return as they would had they filed separately. In tax year 2012, a married couple working fulltime and earning minimum wage, paid an Ohio Marriage Penalty of $184. HB 188 was referred to the House Ways and Means Committee.

All contests are designed, run and
Milford High School sophomore Jacob Stauffer, left, and Larry Holstein attended the West Point Societies of Cincinnati and Dayton Leadership & Ethics Seminar. PROVIDED
Students learn of ethics, leadership The West Point Societies of Cincinnati and Dayton hosted its first Leadership & Ethics Seminar at Miami University Voice of America Learning Center in West Chester. The seminar provided selected sophomore and junior students and faculty members from high schools in Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana, the opportunity to experience some of the leadership and ethics training developed for cadets at the US Military Academy at West Point. Nearly 100 students and 50 faculty members from 50 local high schools attended the event. This seminar, focusing on the same principles and values taught at West Point, was facilitated by West Point graduates from the Greater Cincinnati area. After a short workshop to understand and establish each
participant’s value and beliefs “framework,” small groups of students discussed several situational case studies in which they might find themselves. These cases enabled them to explore their personal values within an ethical decision-making model – helping students develop and internalize a personal code of conduct that will make them stronger leaders. Ethics and values-based leadership are often cited as making the difference between successful leaders and those who fail. West Point is often considered the premier leadership institution in the world. West Point seeks to “educate, train, and inspire the Corps of Cadets, so that each graduate is a commissioned leader of character.” Cadets are taught, practice and live in an environment that develops this leadership
character over a four-year period. The seminar also featured two guest speakers. In the morning, the students heard from Cincinnati City Councilman P.G. Sittenfeld. The closing session was provided by Dr. Victor Garcia, professor of surgery and pediatrics director, Trauma Services, at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital. Both Sittenfeld and Garcia, who have been involved in youth leadership initiatives and leading change, spoke about the role of personal values in addressing ethical leadership challenges they had experienced. All participants received letters of recognition and encouragement from their state governors, as well as from U.S. Sen. Rob Portman and U.S. Rep. Brad Wenstrup.

Eric Radtke of Union Township was honored as the 2013 Distinguished Alumnus at UC Clermont College March 27. THANKS TO MAE HANNA
Radtke named distinguished alumnus at UC Clermont UC Clermont College honored Eric Radtke as the 2013 Distinguished Alumnus at the college’s Scholarship Luncheon March 27. The luncheon is held annually to recognize scholarship recipients, donors and to name a distinguished alumnus. The award is given to an individual who has distinguished themselves through significant professional accomplishment, made contributions to the community and attended UC Clermont College for at least one year. “Words can’t adequately express my sincere gratitude or how deeply honored I am to be recognized as the 2013 UC Clermont College Distinguished Alumnus. This campus allowed me to forge lifelong friendships and memories and to master the keys to my future, while developing a keen awareness of the value of relationships and community. I found the Clermont College environment to be all that I had hoped it would be - an environment that fosters innovation, integrity, teamwork, leadership and educational excellence amid numerous resources to enhance the college experience,” said Radtke. Radtke enrolled in the UC Clermont Professional Pilot training program in 1996 as UC’s Presidential Scholar. Upon graduation in 1998 from UC Clermont College, with an Associate of Applied Science degree in Aviation Technology, he transferred to the UC College of Business, earning
his bachelor’s degree in finance in 2000. After a year as a professional airline pilot, Radtke decided he preferred the experiences and rewards of general aviation education. He returned to Sporty’s in 2002 to head its flight school and direct UC’s Professional Pilot Program. Currently, he is president of Sporty’s Academy, a flight school that offers recreational to career pilot training and produces a complete line of award-winning aviation educational products. In addition, Radtke serves as chief instructor of aviation at UC Clermont College and vice president at Sporty’s Pilot Shop. “While being recognized at a scholarship event as UC’s presidential scholar recipient during my freshman year at UC in 1996, I was invited to offer a few words of thanks. I commented that evening that there were two things I always wanted to be: A pilot and a Bearcat. UC gave me both. We are indeed part of something very special,” said Radtke. “Eric Radtke was definitely born to be a Bearcat. The University of Cincinnati is part of his families’ legacy. Eric continues to lead, teach and give back in the community where he was raised. We are so pleased to honor him today as one of our shining examples of success, ” said Dean Gregory S. Sojka.

MILFORD — Doubters sometimes fuel an athletes fire. Whether it’s Carolina Panther wide receiver Steve Smith who has an article hanging in his locker that says he would never succeed in the NFL or Daniel Nava of the Boston Red Sox who weighed 70 pounds as a freshmen in high school, went undrafted out of college and worked his way to the Majors only after a season with the Chico Outlaws of the Golden Baseball League. Milford High School graduate and Point Park University junior-to-be Jordan Crowell is hoping to join the list of those proving all the doubters wrong. “It drives me tremendously,” Crowell said of the doubters. “To be honest, it fuels my fire. … I feed off of it. Whenever I’m in the gym or running or whenever I’m hitting, I work with that in the back of my mind.” Whatever Crowell is doing has worked thus far. The third basemen earned National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics All-America Honorable Mention as a sophomore after leading the NAIA in hitting at a .441 clip. “… I was down (in Virginia playing summer ball) doing my thing and trying to get better and I get a call from my dad saying I made honorable mention,” the former Eagle said. “It was actually pretty awesome.” The transfer from the University of Northwestern Ohio didn’t stop there when it came to the accolades. Crowell was named Kentucky Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Player of the Year, All-KIAC First Team and Point Park Team MVP en route to helping his team to a 39-16 record and the NAIA National Championship Open Round. While his .441 batting average ranks in the top 10 in school history, it’s not enough to satisfy the perfectionist that he is. “Every athlete has room to get better in every aspect of

their game,” he said. “ … .440 is not good enough for me because I am a perfectionist. I love working.” Crowell is currently playing in the Valley Baseball League in Virginia with the Winchester Royals in a summer wood-bat league. Who knows how his struggles this summer (.091batting average in 17 games) will affect his game when he gets back to Point Park, but one thing
is for sure: Crowell knows the competition will be gunning for the reigning player of the year. “To be on top is one thing, but it’s harder to deal with success than to achieve success,” he said. “When you are at the top you are now the target of everybody who is trying to get to the top. Everyone is coming for you so you have to work your (butt) off 10 times harder to stay at the top.”
Elevation rises to national competition By Mark D. Motz firstname.lastname@example.org
DALLAS — Cincinnati sits 540 feet above sea level. Dallas, Texas, rests 110 feet lower at 430. The change in elevation in Dallas proved a welcome change for the Elevation from Cincinnati. Yes, Elevation, with
a capital E. The Elevation volleyball program based out of Sports Express near Kings Island sent four teams to the USA Volleyball Girls Junior National tournament in Big D the week of Independence Day. The most successful Elevation squad - the 16-year-old
team coached by Sycamore High School girls varsity head coach Greg Ulland and filled with an all-star roster of rising juniors from across the city finished fifth in the upper-division tournament. The team won an lower-division national title the previous summer. Three of the 10 Elevation 16
players - Abby Williams, Katherine Edmondson and Lauren Wilkins - were part of Ursuline Academy’s 2012 Division I state title program last fall under Lions head coach Jeni Case. “That kind of competition can only be good for our area’s high school teams,” said Case, who owns and operates Sports
Express with her husband, former Purcell Marian High School multi-sport star John Paul Case. “The level of play is unbelievable.” More than just a team event, the national tournament was a family affair for the Case clan. See VOLLEY, Page A9

Logan Case is an 11-year-old heading into sixth grade at St. Margaret of York. She played up with the Elevation 12-yearold team that took 13th place nationally among 48 qualifying teams. “Logan’s 12s didn’t lose a tournament all year, but when you get to nationals, you see a whole different level of volleyball from other parts of the country,” Jeni said. “Some of
the California teams, those girls have been playing the beach since they were 4 years old. “We have kids playing in third grade now in CYO which I still think is pretty young - but those girls already have five years in by that age. It’s good for the parents to see that we’re good here, but there’s a much bigger world of volleyball. They see what it takes to compete at that level.” Teams play multiple matches each day, including two days of pool play before dividing into National (upper-level)
and American (lower) brackets to determine the championship. “Playing four days in a row like that, to focus on just the volleyball for that long, is a big help; it’s intense,” Case said. In addition to the 16s and 12s, Elevation teams competed at the 13- and 14-year-old levels. The Elevation 13s finished 11th nationally, while the 14s competed in the American bracket and earned a bronze medal. The Elevation 15 squad competed in the 40th annual AAU championships in Orlando, taking 10th place.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Dream on
Mr. Joseph in his letter “Dream on” continues the Republican mantra “cut taxes, create jobs.” Well, I guess it is a dream because we have cut taxes over and over and the only result has been the rich getting richer and the poor getting poorer and the middle class withering away. Please, Mr. Joseph and those of like mind, explain to me why the wealth at the top has increased by enormous amounts while the wages of the working class have been shrinking every since Reagan. Where are these jobs the job creators are creating. Maybe the fast food industry? And don’t try to tell me about class warfare. Business declared war on the middle class and unions decades ago. Btw, I’m a patriot. I served in the military, I was a union member, I don’t belong to the NRA and I don’t belong to a political party run by religious extremists and the NRA and I am proud of all that.

Therefore, Morgan’s Ohio raid also failed Longacre’s second test. After a while, discipline began to fall apart. The raiders indulged in drinking. They took bird cages, ice skates, bolts of calico; none of which had military significance. They began to look more like drunken Vikings than trained military operatives. The raid did have a psychological benefit of raising Southern morale; especially after the crushing defeats of Gettysburg and Vicksburg. But the temporary benefit came at a frightful price - the loss of 2,160 of his 2,460-man command. Morgan lost favor within the Confederate command structure. He was seen by some as
untrustworthy. His celebrity, stoked by the raid, probably saved him from an investigation. After escaping from the Ohio State Penitentiary, Morgan reformed his command. But it wasn’t the same. His men were not of the same caliber. His activities shaded more to the criminal than military. After robbing a bank in Mount Sterling, Kentucky, an investigation was opened. He was saved from a probable court-martial when he was killed in September 1864. How are we to observe the anniversary of the raid? This question, and the larger question of how should we view the Civil War 150 years later, will be addressed in the next article. We will compare two states Ohio and Georgia - to see their different approaches to this topic.
Supreme Court reaffirmed the legality of abortion it allowed states to set restrictions – without placing an ‘undue burden’ on a woman. Yet such a burden is precisely what Republicans at the Statehouse seek to apply.”
“Life is precious … in all forms. Wouldn’t it be wise to err on the side of caution … instead of encouraging people to only think about themselves?”
Gary Knepp is an attorney who teaches Civil War history at Clermont College.
CH@TROOM July 17 question Do you agree with the new abortion laws that were included in Ohio’s recently approved budget, such as prohibiting public hospitals entering into written agreements with ambulatory surgical centers that perform abortions to accept their patients in case of emergency, and requiring doctors to test for a fetal heartbeat, then inform the patient seeking an abortion in writing of the presence of that heartbeat, and then provide statistical likelihood that the fetus could be carried to term? Why or why not?
“YES. No explanation needed.” J.K.
“There is no middle ground between those who believe that abortion is the killing of a human being and those who believe it is the correction of an extremely unfortunate life choice before it is too late. “The women who are faced with the choice of a 20+ year commitment to raising a child they are not prepared to handle have a tough enough decision about their future. It should be their decision and theirs alone. “The folks who disagree with this have been unsuccessful at making abortion illegal so now they have stooped to low and despicable tactics trying to make it difficult or impossible for a woman to receive a safe and legal abortion. They would rather see a woman die from a botched abortion at an illegal clinic than compromise their belief. “They do not condone taking the child’s life but they have no qualms about killing the mother or dooming her to raise a child she is ill equipped to support. “This is special interest politics at its worst, disgusting.” F.S.D.
“The Ohio legislators should all have to adopt two children born to mothers who did not want or could afford the children. They will probably continue to reduce welfare.
NEXT QUESTION After the George Zimmerman acquittal in Florida, Attorney General Eric Holder has said his department will review so-called “stand-your-ground” laws that allow a person who believes they are in danger to use deadly force in self-defense. Do you support “stand-your-ground” laws? Why or why not? Every week The Community Press asks readers a question they can reply to via e-mail. Send your answers to email@example.com with Chatroom in the subject line.
Planned Parenthood should have greater funding not less.” Walter
“Absolutely not. This is a social issue and has no place in any budget. “It is also a mistake to make legislation that forces any American family to hide in the privacy of their homes out of fear for their government. “While this budget shows us that elected representatives think they own our homes, businesses, schools,and property, it also shows they wish to own our choices, too. “It’s scary, and they’ll pay for this puritanism at the next election.” K.P.
“I do not agree with this, particularly prohibiting public hospitals from entering into agreements to accept emergency patients. All women are entitled to equal health care and treatment. “Currently, clinics that perform abortions must have agreements with a hospital to provide emergency care. Prohibiting this essentially is closing some clinics down. “What is most appalling is that these abortion provisions were sneaked into the budget bill at the last minute, allowing no debate and then Kasich, surrounded by men, signed it into law.
A publication of
“It is a giant step backwards for women’s rights in this country and an embarrassment to the citizens of Ohio to allow such draconian laws on our books.” D.P.
“Absolutely not. One more case of the white, right, male dominated state legislator telling women that they are not smart enough to have control over their own bodies. “Why is it the Republicans, the ‘I love America’ group, who keep reducing the hard-fought rights of the middle, lower, and female class of citizens. First voter suppression, now a return to the 1950s. Next, if we are not careful, women will once again be chattels and non-whites second-class citizens. “Wake up Ohioans, Kasich and cronies will destroy this great state. They got a start already. “I am an older, white, male, but I have a moral conscience and do not want the good old days.” J.Z.
“I disagree with everything about it. The way it was enacted by slipping it into a budget bill and the terms. Sneaking such action into the budget, and using the budget as a weapon against women, is as cowardly as it is cruel. “These amendments only create insurmountable barriers that effectively eliminate safe medical abortions as an option, which are legal in this country. If you want to prevent abortions make sure every woman has health care, a high school education, and access to birth control. “Many Ohio women depend on Planned Parenthood for basic preventive health care. They also count on Planned Parenthood being there for them during the times of greatest need. “Politicians should not interfere with private health care needs of women. When the U.S.
“I do not agree. I have been a pro-choice advocate for decades. I believe the governor is only giving in to his pro-life donors and doesn’t care much for women’s rights. “When a woman makes the heart-wrenching decision to abort she doesn’t need to hear the heartbeat or be put in danger if there is a problem and be refused admission at a public hospital. This is insane. Has the governor no compassion? “Every woman in Ohio should be outraged at this action. We deserve better.” E.E.C.
“I was on the bike path yesterday and came across a baby chipmunk someone had run over. “Brought to mind the following from the Gospel of Matthew … ‘Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground outside your Father’s care. And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. So don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.’
July 10 question Should the morning after pill be made available to women of all ages? Why or why not?
“The morning after pill should be available to all women no matter what age. Only the woman in question has the right to decide whether or not she is going to take the pill. Only she has the right to decide what happens to her body. Freedom of choice is what this country is all about. “Let me bring up another important related point. Have we forgotten why crime fell so dramatically in the late 1990s? It was because of Roe versus Wade, allowing abortions for everyone. The previously unwanted pregnancies to poor uneducated women did not occur, so voila 20 years later these people were not around to commit crimes. “I don’t understand how we as Americans can proudly hold up our heads to the rest of the world and even think about enacting more laws that discriminate against women.” Neville Duffield

Use your basil bounty for Rita’s freezer pesto
Rita’s freezer pesto
There’s a huge interest in making pesto, so I could probably devote a whole column to it. Readers want to know if nuts are essential. No, and walnuts make a good substitute for pine nuts. Should you add garlic after thawing? I add both nuts and garlic to my pesto prior to freezing, but some food gurus say leave them out since, in their opinion, these items turn strong in the freezer. I use my food processor, but you could use a blender or make this by hand. This is a thicker pesto that freezes well. Add more oil after thawing, if you like. Sometimes I’ll add a bit of water to pesto if I’m

Tip from Rita’s kitchen
Why does my pesto turn dark? Basil oxidizes rapidly when leaves are cut up either too finely and/or exposed to air, so use the pulse button to mix. That also alleviates heat while processing, which can turn the basil dark. Try these tips to keep your pesto green. » Blanch the basil

Sometimes my enthusiasm in spring for planting herbs and produce goes so out of bounds that when it’s time for harvesting, I get overwhelmed. I went out early to pick tomatoes and happened to see what Rita I thought Heikenfeld were a few green RITA’S KITCHEN beans ready to pick. Ditto for cucumbers. By the time I finished, I had a big basket of beans, almost a dozen cucumbers and more than enough squash for the neighborhood. I had also planted a row of both Iranian/lemon and sweet basil in the veggie garden. (Not that I didn’t already have enough in the herb garden!) The basils were just starting to flower so I had to harvest them, as well. The veggies will keep for a couple of days but I wanted to work with the basil then, so I made my latest version of freezer pesto.

The information includes the residents’ health, physical functioning, mental status and general well-being. Medicare uses some of the assessment information to measure the quality of certain aspects of nursing home care, like whether residents have gotten their flu shots, are in pain, or are losing weight. These measures of care are called “quality measures.” Medicare posts each nursing home’s scores for these quality measures on this website.

Morgan’s Raiders Trail signs remember Civil War times By Sharon Brumagem firstname.lastname@example.org
Nearly 200 people across Clermont County participated in the Morgan Raid Heritage Trail Sign Dedication July 14, exactly 150 years after General John Hunt Morgan and his Raiders swept through the county stealing food, weapons, horses, money and burning bridges, leaving behind eyewitness accounts from county residents and their now famous footprints in Civil War history. National, state and local dignitaries, along with dozens of historical and civic groups members and county residents participated in an afternoon of activities that included a soldout historical tour of Morgan’s Raiders local sites, sign dedications in Miamiville and Williamsburg before ending with a trail sign dedication reception at Harmony Hill, homestead of the father of Clermont County and Williamsburg founder, General William Lytle. Miami Township Trustee Mary Makley Wolff headed the dedication of two signs located at the side of the bike trail near Village Market in Miamiville, one
for the “Fighting at the Bridges” and the other for the John Hunt Morgan Heritage Trail. She thanked those who gathered for the ceremony, including 52 passengers from the Morgan’s Raiders Heritage Trail bus tour. Croswell Bus Co. donated use of the bus while Terri Daugherty, member of the Clermont County Civil War Commemorative Committee, served as hostess and Rick Crawford, county historian, planning committee member and historical tour guide, shared his knowledge of what transpired during Morgan’s two-day sweep July 14 and July 15, 1863. Upon receiving warning of Morgan’s menacing advance, many villagers and those living in the countryside hid or buried valuables while one woman hid horses in her parlor knowing Confederate gentleman would decline entering a lady’s domain, Crawford told the tour group. “People are still finding things buried along Morgan’s route through our county,” Crawford said. In Williamsburg, Mayor Mary Ann Lefker read a proclamation commemorating Morgan’s
stop in the village. She also participated in unveiling the sign installed in her village across Ohio 276 from the Croswell Bus Co. The concluding Morgan Raid Heritage Trail Sign Dedication/ Reception at Harmony Hill featured a flag raising by Williamsburg Boy Scout Troop 348, singing of the “Star Spangled Banner” by Stephanie Williford, speeches by Clermont County Civil War Commemorative Committee Chair Harold Paddock, county Commissioner Bob Proud, Williamsburg Harmony Hill Association President Lucy Snell, Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War Member Kerry Langdon, singing of the “Battle Hymn of the Republic by the Williamsburg Community Choir, and the reciting of the Gettysburg Address by Abraham Lincoln re-enactor Jim Crabtree. Organizations involved in the day’s activities also included: Village of Willliamsburg, Williamsburg Fire & Life Squad, Williamsburg Police Department, American Legion Post 288 and Ohio Historical Society.

Miami Township Trustee Mary Makley Wolff welcomes the Morgan’s Raiders historical tour bus passengers to the dedication of two historical markers along the bike trail in Miamiville. The historical tour, led by Clermont County historian Rick Crawford, and marker dedication were part of the commemoration of the 150th anniversary of Morgan’s Raiders invasion of Kentucky, Indiana and Ohio during the Civil War. Brigadier General John Hunt Morgan and his men spent two days in Clermont County July 14 and July 15, 1863. Miami Township’s markers along the John Hunt Morgan Heritage Trail in Miamiville describes Morgan’s skirmish at the bridges and the derailment of the Kilgour train.

Cucumbers are ready, time to make pickles see Dr. Sipple. He has been helping her. She has had back problems for several years. It seems she needs to go see him every couple of months. I was talking to Mike at the Boars Head Bait Shop in Afton. He said the last crappie tournament the weigh in was better than the last one before. The winner this time had over 5 pounds and the big crappie weighed over 1 pound. That is a good fish. I imagine this fall the fishing will be extra good. The black raspberries have quit producing. We had a good crop this year. It looks like we will have a good supply of plants to sell. The plants we have to sell will produce berries next year, so give us a call. We can dig the plants any time. The garden is doing OK. We are getting plenty of cucumbers. Ruth Ann made a batch of lime pickles and she is now making a batch of bread and butter pickles. She will put the receipt in this article. The lime pickles are real crisp. The others aren’t as crisp but still good. They will make for good eating this winter when there is snow on the ground and it is cold. The tomatoes are slow to ripen this year due to the rain and then the hot sun, but they will be good when they do ripen. The little yellow tomatoes are doing good. Here are the pickle recipes.
VETERANS CORNER The Veterans Service Commission was born in the year 1886. Following the Civil War, the nation was in a depression with little work. Soldiers, both Blue and Gray, were very hard pressed to make a living for their families, for those disabled, almost impossible. Our forefathers had the insight and knowledge to know something had to be done. A property tax and pension became the order of the day. Basically, there has been no change. We still have the property tax and a pension from our government. Other than inflation and the value of money, things are as they were in 1886. Even the wounds received by our soldiers are much the same. The Bible says there will be wars and rumors of wars all through our history, whether it be here or on some foreign soil. We all must take care of our men and women serving in our armed services. They protect our rights, our freedoms and our way of life. The staff at the Clermont County Veterans Service Commission wish to remember all fallen comrades this Memorial Day. The day set aside to honor those who have given their all and family members for their pain and sacrifice so that our flag can fly over our capitol buildings, schools, churches, homes and all the other places Old Glory flies symbolizing our nation’s freedoms.
Howard Daugherty is the executive director of the Clermont County Veterans Services Commission.

Howdy folks, Something happened a few nights ago, around 12 midnight. We heard a noise at the bedroom window. Ruth Ann said, “Chessy is that you?” Chessy meowed some, so Ruth Ann got up and went to the living room door and let her in. She came in and laid on the foot of our bed the rest of the night. This is the first time she has done this. When Tony comes in, she knows the sound of his truck, and knows he will have treats for her. Animals sure are smart. Last Thursday morning at 10 A.M. there was a dedication of the new Senior Services house in Batavia. This is number seven for the Clermont Senior Services having them built. This one is called Dimmitt Woods. What a beautiful home for the seniors. There was a good crowd and the Honorable Doug Green gave the dedication prayer. The folks that live there are so proud of their beautiful home and are willing to tell folks about it. I started cardiac rehab Wednesday morning, July 17, I had an interview on Monday and had lots of questions. This will be an interesting experience. The time will be three months, three times each week, Monday, Wednesday and Friday for 1-1/2 hours. I am excited to do this so I can get back to good health again. Last Friday, we made
