Officials devise plan to tackle failing scores Superintendent: We’re not going to play the blame game By Keith BieryGolick

Goshen Police Chief Ray Snyder suffered an injury that will keep him off the road and confined to a desk for the time being. Coupled with a long-term injury to an officer and paternity leave for another, Snyder felt it was necessary to promote two volunteer officers to part-time paid status. Two trustees agreed and one did not.FILE ART

Trustees divided on police promotions By Keith BieryGolick

GOSHEN — Two volunteer police officers were recently promoted, but trustees didn’t agree on the issue. Matt Wulker and Cody Collier will make $11.44 an hour and work a maximum of 30 hours per week, said Goshen Police Chief Ray Snyder. “We promoted two part-time police officers from volunteer to part-time pay status because we have medical reasons that three people will be out,” said Trustee Bob Hausermann. “Chief Snyder will be one of the three – he won’t be able to perform road duties unless it is absolutely necessary.” Snyder still will be able to perform desk duties, Hausermann said. Trustee Ray Autenrieb and Hausermann voted to promote the officers. Trustee Claire Corcoran did not. “I did disagree, I voted no against it. That’s nothing against the two (officers), I’m sure they are wonderful gentleman, but where are you getting the money from?” Corcoran said. “If we do have the money, why is the police department

dipping into the general fund every year?” If the officers worked 240 hours a month, as Snyder suggested, officials will have to use Hausermann $2,745.60 of taxpayers’ money each month to compensate them. Snyder said the primary reason for hiring officers is the 30 percent reduc- Corcoran tion of staff his department has recently faced. “We were already short on help,” Snyder said. Then an officer suffered a work-related injury Sept. 4, causing him to miss work until the end of the year. Another officer will be on paternity leave for “several weeks” in November, Snyder said. “All that thrown in the pot leaves you with a lot of vacancies in the schedule,” he said. But those vacancies in the schedule are precisely why Corcoran did not want to hire additional officers. Autenrieb asked the chief at

a previous meeting to examine the department’s scheduling and work out a way to keep officers from working alone at night. Autenrieb “Why do we have one (working) at night, but five during the day?” Corcoran said. Wulker and Collier will help fill some of those night shifts, SnySnyder der said. “These guys finished their field training process and are ready to step up,” he said. “Both officers previously mentioned (as needing time off), they are both assigned to the night shift, that’s where all the open holes are.” The officers could give Goshen up to 240 hours of additional coverage a month and help work nights, Snyder said. “I’m sure they will. I have no problem with that,” Corcoran said. “I still don’t understand why we need that many people on in the daytime.”

STONELICK TWP. — The new state report card wasn’t flattering for the Clermont Northeastern Local School District. The district received an “F” in Overall Value-Added, Disabled Value-Added and Annual Measurable Objectives (AMO). Clermont Northeastern was the only district in Clermont County to get a “F” grade in the Annual Measurable Objectives category. Annual Measurable Objectives is a new way to measure achievement gaps between general students and certain disadvantaged student groups called subgroups. The subgroups include ethnic minorities, economically disadvantaged students, students with disabilities and those learning English. Value-added measures whether students made a year of academic progress. A “C” indicates one year’s progress, while a “D” or “F” indicates they made less than a year’s progress. “I’m extremely disappointed with what’s happened since 2010,” said Faye Miller, a resident who lives on Brushy Fork Road. “Is it the administration? Or is it mandates from the state?” School board President Mike Freeman disagreed with the new ratings and pointed to the district’s “Ex-

cellent” rating last year as an example. “We got a good school. Our kids get a good education,” FreeMiller man said. “The state has got their heads up their butts.” Superintendent Ralph Shell invited Clermont NortheastShell ern’s principals to give a presentation about what is being done to raise scores at a recent board meeting. “We’re not going to play Greene the blame game,” Shell said. “The state has established standards ... If we don’t agree with those standards Eckert that’s tough.” Elementary Principal Glenda Greene highlighted Project MORE, a one-on-one mentoring program being implemented at the elementary school to improve reading. “Anytime you can have a student with a one-on-one environment you are going to get a lot more learning,” said Trina Farrell, title 1 coordinator at Clermont Northeastern. At least 25 students from See SCORES, Page A2

the elementary have been targeted for the program, which will require a student to meet with a mentor four times a week for 30 minutes, Farrell said. “I firmly believe that reading is the most important (aspect) and basis of education,” Shell said. “We’re going to do a full-court press to find mentors, tutors, whatever we can in the community.” Another change to the elementary probably won’t be as popular, he said. “Next year, if parents want to request teachers that request probably won’t be honored,” Shell said. “We want to have the flexibility to put kids where they need to be.” The superintendent said “selective grouping” will be left up to the teachers and principals. At the high school, Principal John Eckert was quick to divert blame away from his students. “This is not a kid problem,” he said. “Other high schools out there are achieving success and they have the same kids we do.” Officials plan to tweak the way special education is taught by demanding more teacher interaction, Eckert said. While new standards and the subsequent report card have confused a lot of people, the superintendent said the solution to a better performance isn’t that convoluted – it’s all about the standards. “Teachers: understand standards, teach standards and test standards,” he said.

Engineers respond to road opponents By Jeanne Houck

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

posed to proposed traffic changes to challenge a brochure the group is distributing called “The End of Newtown.” The Newtown Community Partnership Committee – comprised of village officials, business people and residents – says in the brochure that the transportation proposal would relocate state Route 32, rolling a four-lane highway through Newtown that would destroy some village businesses, relocate some homes, devastate Native American archeological sites, put a serious dent in Newtown’s

income- and property-tax receipts and increase air, noise and water pollution. Hubbard said transportation officials are seeking fact-based input from communities and have made no final decisions about the proposed plan, which is designed to improve travel and access between downtown Cincinnati and the eastern area of the region by upgrading and relocating roads, adding rail transit, expanding bus service and extending bikeways and walking paths. “We have, on multiple occasions, stated publicly

form,” Hubbard said. Newtown Village Councilmen Mark Kobasuk and Chuck Short, both members of the Newtown Community Partnership Committee, say the group is standing by the statements in its brochure. “It does not benefit Newtown.” “Any decision we make will have impacts we have to live with,” Hubbard



told the Community Press, “so it is critical that the decision be made in the light of the facts. “‘No build’ is an option,” Hubbard said. But, “‘No build’ does have significant impacts as well,” said Hubbard, noting that area traffic long has been plagued by congestion and circuitous routes.

MIAMI TWP. — Clermont County officials are upgrading radio system equipment. In turn, local government entities must do the same. Those upgrades could cost taxpayers in Miami Township $195,427 – just for the police department’s radio system equipment. “The proposed purchase would replace 55 portable radios and shoulder microphones, and one base radio,” wrote Police Chief Steve Bailey in a recent memo to trustees. “We keep several spare portable radios on hand so that officers may use them when their assigned radios are out of service or in the shop.” Officials did not budget for police radios this year. Bailey said Motorola is offering a discount, the same discount retired Fire Chief Jim Whitworth presented to trustees in May. The discount is $400 per radio. “The time to buy radios is now while the discount is still available,” Bailey said. When the promotion was previously brought to trustees, they raised concerns about jumping at

and to several of you directly, that we will not support the realignment of any roadway option that would irreparably damage or ‘destroy Newtown’ or any community along the corridor,” Hubbard and Manger say in the email. Hubbard told the Community Press that, “I will tell you, I will not support a new interstate highway or an interstate-like highway traversing the eastern corridor area. “There is no desire to destroy any central business district or neighborhood in any way, shape or

discounts. “Let’s just call this what this is,” said Trustee Mary Makley Wolff. Schultz “This is capitalism at its finest. (Motorola) is pretending they are giving us this great discount so we can say to the public we saved $20,000.” Trustee Karl Schultz argued it was important for the township to stay near, if not ahead, of the technological curve.

Miami Twp. hires new fire chief By Keith BieryGolick

Miami Township trustees offered Stephen Kelly, the former captain of emergency medical services for West Chester Township, a conditional offer to become their next fire chief. If Kelly passes his drug test and background test he is expected to be officially hired Oct. 7. KEITH BIERYGOLICK/THE COMMUNITY PRESS

MIAMI TWP. — Miami Township has a new fire chief, and he comes from West Chester. Stephen Kelly, formerly the captain of emergency medical services for West Chester Township, was offered a conditional contract last week. “He targeted what we were looking for,” said Trustee Ken Tracy. “He came from an outstanding township – West Chester Township, which is one of the largest town-

Curriculum targets Common Core By Keith BieryGolick

MILFORD — Milford school officials have implemented new curriculum to go with new state standards. “It’s more rigorous – in terms of reading and writing – than we’ve ever had before,” said Superintendent Bob Farrell. “We’ll be asking our kids to achieve at higher levels and read at more difficult levels than they have in past.” This year, students in kindergarten through fifth grade will participate in ReadyGEN curriculum, which was developed by Pearson Publishing to prepare students for new English and language arts standards.. “This is so new, and so pro-

gressive, that we’re one of only two areas in the country doing it right now,” Farrell said. Milford is the only district outside of the state Farrell of New York participating in the program. Officials discovered the program, written in the spring, when they were in the process of rewriting their language arts curriculum, said Jill Chin, elementary curriculum director. “When we started calling publishing companies we were looking for something new – not just something that companies are saying was revamped for the Common Core,” Chin said.

“This was written specifically for Common Core.” The philosophy behind Common Core standards are to give students more Chin access to content and information, so students – no matter what reading level they are at – are not limited in any way, she said. “In the past ... if you were reading a story about tornadoes, students who have a more difficult time reading might get books with less information about it,” Chin said. “With the new standards that’s not acceptable because not only was there a gap in read-

ing but a gap in knowledge.” One of the big differences students can expect is more non-fiction reading. “(ReadyGEN) is not a textbook program. We didn’t want sterile stories and anthologies,” Chin said. “Children will read entire novels and books, based on themes around social studies or science content. So we’re building not only reading skills, but content knowledge at the same time.” Another change will be the amount of writing students are required to do. “There will be writing every day,” Chin said. “Not as much journal writing and writing about how their summer was, but writing more

directly to what they’re reading.” Each elementary school building will conduct group lessons with teachers and students at curriculum meetings to show parents how their kids are learning. Those meetings will be scheduled for the beginning of the first quarter, Chin said. Common Core standards will be assessed next school year, which has left some districts “scrambling for materials,” Farrell said. “There are many more districts that will be adopting materials similar to ReadyGEN next year,” he said. “By getting this in this year we’re a little bit ahead of the game.”

Milford student’s work in art show

HYDE PARK — Fifth-grader Sam Lincoln is glad to have an audience for his work. Lincoln’s painting, which was a still life of a pear, was selected to promote the upcoming Hyde Park Square Art Show. The show will be 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 6, in Hyde Park Square. “It feels good,” said Lincoln, who attends St. Ursula Villa School, about the exposure. “I like that it will be shown in Hyde Park.” Lincoln, who lives in Milford, was among the entrants in the youth art category in last year’s show. “It’s a great venue for the kids,” said St. Ursula art teacher Mike Magoto, who has sent samples from his class in previous years.”I like how (the show) brings the community out to experience what the local artists are creating.” The show features artists in a variety of categories including ceramics, fiber art, glass, jewelery and photography, as well as a variety of other media. The event has been an attraction in the community for more than four decades. Janet Smith, who is a cochairwoman of the show, said more than 200 artists will be featured. “We like to draw people

CNE senior works for Rockets’ improvement By Mark D. Motz

OWENSVILLE — Hollywood would write a better finish. Reality, of course, is another story. Clermont Northeastern High School senior Josh Forkner would like the storybook ending to his prep football career, but makes the most of a reality that includes a mostly inexperienced team simply learning how to win. Let alone actually winning. “Our team is really young,” said Forkner, who plays inside linebacker and center for the Rockets. “We only have really one returner on offense and three on defense, so it’s important for me to be a leader. I can see as this year progresses, we’re getting better. It might not be showing up on the scoreboard, but we’re a better team. “No one ever wants a losing season, but it doesn’t matter in the long run if we’re laying a foundation. If we could turn the program around, I would be ecstatic. Nothing would make me happier as a graduate than for the younger guys to build on what we’ve done and make a winning program. “Even more than a win or a loss, a bigger goal is to get better. There’s a completely different attitude. We have fun at practice, but we know when it’s time to work, too. You have to put in the work. It used to be guys would just show up and expect to win. Now they know they have to

put in the time and effort to win. CNE head coach Jason Conley credits Forkner with part of the improvement. “He is second, I think, in the area for tackles and tied for first, maybe, for fumble recoveries,” Conley said. “He’s aggressive and he’s all over the field for us. He plays very, very hard all the time.” Forkner enjoys all elements of the game he began playing in third grade. “I handle all the line calls; the line is kind of on my shoulders (on offense),”he said. “I like the responsibility. There are big boys across from me on every play and I love the challenge. “But I definitely have a love for defense. I love having the chance to make a hit, to take on a blocker and get to the ball.” Forkner took up wrestling as a sophomore and qualified for the district tournament last year in just his second season on the mats. He has gotten some college inquiries for wrestling, but hopes for a chance to play college football. “My goal is to play Saturday mornings,” he said. “That’s been my dream since I was in Pee Wee ball. Some guys dream of the NFL, but I don’t think I necessarily have the size or talent for that, but I definitely feel like I contribute on the college level. “Wrestling keeps you in shape, but it’s also an individual sport. I really like the team aspect of football.”

The best only need one name. Milford High School senior Austin Taylor has two monikers often used first. And while he’s not ready for the PGA, he is putting the finishing touches on a strong season and career for the Eagles. “I like being a leader,” Taylor said. “I like making sure my guys know I have their back.” Taylor tends to lead more by example than words. “He’s very patient,” said Milford head coach Phil Sheldon. “He’s one of the most patient players I’ve ever had. Even when things are going badly for him, he grinds it out and gets himself right. “I tell my players all the time, ‘When I see you on the course I shouldn’t be able to tell how you’re playing, good or bad, from your demeanor.’ Austin is a great example. He keeps his emotions in check and just plays. “I think what other kids pick up from him is his work ethic. He wants to work on what he didn’t do so well. They see the end result of him playing good golf in matches and tournaments and then they see what he does to prepare. It’s a quiet kind of leadership.” “He has very good hand-eye coordination. He’s an analyzer and his curse management is excellent. He stays away from trouble and that keeps him away from that big number than can turn a match upside down. “A typical round of golf is what, four-anda-half hours? But the amount of time you’re actually playing is only about three minutes. You’ve got four hours and 27 minutes of walking, thinking, looking around, visualizing your next shot and your routine. That’s where Austin is really good. He uses that time so well.” Taylor began playing golf with his father, Jeff, who would bring the 3-year-old boy to the driving range to hit balls with him. He took up basketball in sixth grade – Taylor plays varsity for Milford – and concentrated primarily on the court until high school. By ninth grade he began taking golf more seriously. He even works at The Oasis Golf Club for a chance to get some more work on his game. “I’m seasonal,” he said. “I’m still into golf right now, but I’m starting to look forward to basketball. But I think with the way I’m hitting it right now, I have a chance for my sea-

ECC CHAMPS For the second straight year, the Milford High School girl’s golf team took first place in the Eastern Cincinnati Conference Tournament, held Sept. 26 at Bel-Wood Country Club. As has been the case for nearly the entire year, junior Megan Creager was at the forefront as she earned medalist honors for the 16th time this year. The team competition featured a dominating performance by the Eagles as they won the league championship by 14 strokes over second place Kings. For the round, Milford shot a total of 354, led by Creager’s match-best 81. Sophomore Abby Swenson was also among the league’s best, carding a round of 88 to finish third. After a 17-0 regular season and now a league championship, the Eagles’ next goal will be a sectional championship. MHS kicks off the postseason on Monday, at the Division I sectionals, being held at Walden Ponds Golf Course.

McNick crowned Queen behind cancer survivor By Mark D. Motz

ANDERSON TWP. — Sometimes a victory is more than mere numbers on a scoreboard. Ask Sarah Hickman. The McNicholas High School senior owns her share of athletic victories, to be sure. Among them, medalist honors at the Sept. 25 Queen of the Hill golf tournament at Coldstream Country Club. Her round of 44 helped the Rockets to a 188-214-241 victory over Turpin and Anderson high schools, respectively. For Hickman - a Batavia resident - golf is anything but a fivemile walk spoiled. After missing her entire junior season fighting leukemia, every day on the course is joy. “I missed it,” she said. “I love playing. I’ve played since I was old enough to walk, basically. It was hard not to play last year.” The cancer fight continues. Hickman undergoes monthly chemotherapy treatments, which will continue through May 2014. She had one the week before both Queen of the Hill

and the Division II sectional tournament Sept. 23, where she led the Rockets to a runner-up finish, one stroke behind Indian Hill, to advance to the districts at Pipestone Oct. 3. Rocket coach Willy Corbett

credits Hickman for a lot of the team’s success, including a 10stroke drop in score from last year’s victorious 198 in the Queen of the Hill. “That’s purely coaching,” he said with a laugh. “No, seriously, that’s having Sarah Hickman back. Not just her playing, but inspiring the other girls, too. She’s one who never wants a day off, who always wants to work harder, even when she’s not well after a treatment. “She was medalist today, but she’s still not satisfied. That’s the competitor in her. She loves the game, which you have to do to play it as well as she does.” Hickman looks forward to the rest of the tournament season. Her older sister Allison qualified for state competition two years ago. Sarah said following her to Columbus in a couple of weeks is a reasonable goal. “(Winning Queen of the Hill) is a point of pride, but to see the whole community come together and support all three schools, that’s what I wish sports was more often,” Corbett said. “This is such a good event.”

America’s way of life is threatened their highest share over that time.” – (NY Times) Even with such information smacking us in the face, we manage to Len get our shorts Harding COMMUNITY PRESS twisted when fast-food GUEST COLUMNIST workers want union representation. There’s a notion that only high-school kids work at McDonald’s, Burger King, etc.; that these are only starter jobs and if wages were higher, prices would be higher. As if we would starve. Fifty-three percent of fastfood workers are 21 and older, only 30 percent are teenagers. Almost 85 percent have graduated from high school; more than one-third have some college. Twenty-seven percent of all fast-food workers have at least one child. These are no longer entry-level jobs for teens, yet 13 percent of fastfood workers are paid the federal minimum wage, or less. Fewer than 17 percent earn $10.10 per hour or more – (The Hill). These are not steppingstone jobs leading to managerial positions. Low paid front-line occupations com-

prise 89 percent of all jobs in the industry. Even supervisors have a median hourly wage of $13.06 per hour. It is difficult to imagine how someone getting less than $14/hr accumulates enough capital to own anything, let alone a franchise outlet. All low-wage earners are targets for wage theft: unpaid overtime, denial of breaks, improper deductions from paychecks, out-of-pocket deductions for register stoppages, and late or bounced paychecks. Two-thirds of delivery workers polled have experienced wage theft. These people need a union. Unionization would introduce a modicum of balance in the employment dynamic. But that doesn’t happen here; we’re incessantly told unions are bad. If Clermont County were Indian Hill writ large, Clermont County’s voting patterns would make sense. We give 67 percent of our votes to people who have every intention of keeping us on this downward wage spiral. Just how does this benefit the working people of Clermont County?

CH@TROOM Last week’s question Should college athletes be paid? If so, now much? If not, why not?

“College athletes should receive scholarships and stipends for play. A large percentage of players come from low-income families that cannot financially support the athletes. “The scholarships do not include extra money for daily expenses. As a result, a number of players in recent times have resorted to selling awards, autographs and accepting cars and other favors because they have no money. “I do appreciate that common sense and good judgement also play a role. However, how many readers of the could survive on no income? “We all know that athletes cannot not get jobs during school due to the demands on their schedules for training, practice and playing locally and across country – and then there’s studying, attending classes and homework. “Come on, we all enjoy watching them perform and especially winning. Let’s pay our college athletes!”


“Yes, I believe athletes who are requested to spend a stipulated number of days each year on campus or at a facility designated for athletic games/ training should be paid a stipend for their time. The stipend should be uniform for each sport and designed to cover expenses not paid by the college/university. “Today’s athletes in some sports do not have summers to themselves during which they

can earn extra spending money. Many are from homes where money is in short supply. This stipend should cover recreation, food and, books which are not furnished by their school. “As a non-athlete attending college from a poor home I remember many days where I existed on one candy bar all day in order to have bus fare for my trip home. I can understand why some kids are forced to sell their jerseys in order to pay for a weekend date. “Sure, they get a free education that others pay dearly for, but their life should not be that of a total drudger. And, need I mention the money they bring in at some schools. “Because some schools lose money on athletics, to pay or not pay should be voluntary and the amount set by the NCAA or other governing sports organization to which the school belongs.”

Live Nude Dancing in Downtown Milford! A hoax gets above-the-fold front page billing. America’s way of life threatened by growing income disparity; real news isn’t in the newspaper. How quaint. IRS data for 2012 show the top 1 percent took more of the income from the nation’s GDP than since the Roaring 20’s. These folk took 20 percent of all income. If you made $394,000 you are now in the 1 percent; if your income was $140,000 you at least made it into the top 10 percent (who didn’t do so badly either; they took more than half of the country’s total income). This is the highest income disparity level recorded since the government began collecting such data a century ago. If you made less than that, you are sharing leftovers with the hoi polloi. If you’re living on Social Security alone, you are in the lowest 25 percent. Over the last 30 years income inequality has increased steadily. “One major factor contributing to income inequality: stagnant wages ... Overall employee compensation ... (has fallen) to its lowest share of national income in more than 50 years while corporate profits have climbed to


compensation is granted that moves into the professional level, and the pricing of a college game or event would be cost prohibitive as it is now with professional sports. “Maybe a reduction on their tuition maybe, but not compensation!”


“College athletes on scholarship already are paid in the form of an education. Problem is they are also very often enticed into coming to a certain school for other reasons than to play a sport and get an education – boosters offer bribes of money, sex, and various things they shouldn’t be offering.”


“Absolutely not! It's not just that colleges should be places for learning and that the U.S. needs to put a higher value on that than on sport, though that is true. “We have seen the NFL come to an understanding of the dangers of concussion to young players, yet in the last 24 hours I heard that one of our local high school coaches suggested to a freshman quarterback that he not go to the doctor after taking a hit because he would not be able to play for a couple of weeks. I hope that is not true, but I regret that it probably is. “The point is that even the current system puts way too much pressure on young players, their families and coaches to make decisions which are bad for their long-term health. Money to play for college would only make this situation worse. D.R.

You know the old adage, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." That's the way I feel about the current trustees. They work well together, their hearts are for Goshen's best interest, they balanced the 2013 budget, and they're both ex- military. Let's not forget, the state cut revenue funds 50 percent since they took office. I know a little more about Ray than Bob so I will tell you what I know about him. He totally loves Goshen. He is a active member of the Lions Club, Chamber of Commerce, United Methodist Church, Clermont County Trustee Association, and the

CPAA. He donates a large part of what he gets from the township back to the township. In 2011 when the Chamber stated they didn't have the money to put on the Light up Goshen Parade and there wouldn't be a parade Ray said that parade is for Goshen and there will be a parade. Ray and another couple from the chamber took their personal money and paid for the parade. There are many other financial contributions he has made. Ray works hard for the people of Goshen and I support him 100 percent for re-election.

Conservatives are the real truth-deniers “Old Greg” started out his recent commentary claiming that the liberals base their ideas, policies, etc. on feelings (opinions) and that conservatives base theirs on facts. Then, “Old Greg” writes a column based on his factually, incorrect opinions of reality and misrepresents liberal positions. The real difference between conservatives and liberals is that conservatives are truth deniers. They deliberately ignore mathematical and scientific facts, resulting in a phenomenon of “willful ignorance.” They deny the true causes of our federal deficit, they deny the failure of “trickle down” economic policy, they deny climate change influenced by humans, and they deny the majority held view that expanded background checks before purchasing a gun would save lives. These positions put all of us at risk due to public policies based on denial of the facts. Since my space here is limited to 500 words, I have included a link below to a blog I created with the facts including hyper-links to sources for each topic in a point by point rebuttal to “Old Greg.” Point 1: “Old Greg” denies that the Bush-era tax cuts drive the deficit. Fact: “The goal of reining in long-term deficits and debt would be much easier to achieve if it were not for the policies set in motion during the Bush years. Just two policies dating from the Bush Administration – tax cuts and the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan account for almost half of the $17 trillion in debt that will be owed by 2019 under current policies.” Sources: Center on Budget and Policy Priorities and CBO Report Liberal position: We all know that the Bush-era tax cuts were not just applied to

the rich. Those tax cuts applied to the middle class as well, but the liberals’ position was made clear throughout the last presidential campaign.

The liberal solution to the deficit problem is one of Dottie balance beMiller tween spendCOMMUNITY PRESS ing cuts and GUEST COLUMNIST increased taxes. Point 2: Old Greg’s second point claims that the rich are the job creators. Fact: “There is not conclusive evidence, however, to substantiate a clear relationship between the 65year steady reduction in the top tax rates and economic growth. Analysis of such data suggests the reduction in the top tax rates have had little association with saving, investment, or productivity growth. “However, the top tax rate reductions appear to be associated with the increasing concentration of income at the top of the income distribution. (In other words the rich get richer.) “The share of income accruing to the top 0.1 percent of U.S. families increased from 4.2 percent in 1945 to 12.3 percent by 2007 before falling to 9.2 percent due to the 2007-2009 recession. “ SOURCE CRS Report for Congress Sept. 14, 2012 To continue reading the rest of my point-by-point rebuttal and see the supporting sources visit http:// Dottie Miller lives in Union Township.

Milford’s Knepp releases 7th book

There was food, raffles and prizes and free entry for the vehicles. The awards were hand-tooled wood “tires.”

Gary Knepp, of Milford, has just released his seventh book, entitled “Forgotten Warriors Stories from the Korean War.” The book focuses upon the experiences of men who served in Korea. “Most Americans know very little about the Korean War, and yet it was a pivotal event of the 20th century,” Knepp said. “Four million people, including 36,000 Americans, were killed in just 37 months. Americans stood a better chance of becoming a casualty in Korea than in Vietnam or even World War II. “Our men fought under very challenging circumstances - temperatures soaring to 100 degrees in the summer and plunging to 50 degrees below zero in the Knepp winter,” he added. Chapter introductions frame the highlights of the war and the vignettes of 39 veterans give the book a personal touch. The coverage of American POWs is especially poignant. “The American POW experience was hellish. According to one scholar 60 percent of American prisoners died within that first year. “They were murdered, tortured, starved, and routinely subjected to communist indoctrination,” Knepp said. The stories of three local POWs are told in the book. “Most Americans believe that Vietnam or Afghanistan are our longest wars, but actually Korea is. We signed an armistice ceasing hostilities in 1953, and so we are still technically at war. “Nearly 700 Americans have been killed in Korea since 1953 and we currently have 28,500 troops there,” he explained. The major incidents of that period and the histories of nine men who served since 1953 are covered. “Remarkably,” Knepp said, “none of these men see themselves as heroes. The heroes, they say, are those who didn’t come home.” Forgotten Warriors may be bought from Little Miami Books or from the author at 732-3415. Knepp is available to speak to civic organizations about the book.

27 graduate from UC Clermont’s Police Academy The UC Clermont College Police Academy celebrated the graduation of 27 students who have spent the last five months in the Ohio Peace Officer Basic Training Course offered through the Clermont College Criminal Justice Technology Program. The ceremony took place in the Krueger Auditorium on the Batavia campus in August. Clermont County Sheriff A.J. “Tim” Rodenberg gave the keynote address to the graduates. Sheriff Rodenberg is an

instructor in both the Criminal Justice Program and the Police Academy, and also serves as a charter member of the Clermont College Criminal Justice Advisory Board, which guides and makes recommendations on curricular issues at the college. “We are very proud of the fact that we are one of only two colleges in Ohio who have folded the Basic Police Academy into our academic curriculum. Our graduates finish their time here with both their associate

degree in criminal justice and their Ohio Peace Officer Training Certificate. This makes them marketable in a tough market and valuable to our consumers – the local law enforcement community,” said Associate Professor Ed Bridgeman, head of the Criminal Justice Technology Program. For more information about the Police Academy, please contact David Gregory, Program Director, Office of Safety Services and Police Academy at 558-7408.

Rita shares potato salad, stuffed pepper recipes

Oktoberfest German potato salad

This is as close as I can get to the recipe of my German mother-inlaw, Clara. Easy and really good. I used red potatoes for this recipe. If you use baking potatoes, which contain more starch, they will soak up more of the dressing. 8 slices bacon (I used thick sliced), cut into little pieces then sauteed (save

week at room temperature. To serve, cut peppers in quarters.

Readers want to know

drippings) 1 heaping cup chopped onion 1-2 ribs celery, chopped (if they’re real long, use one, more can be added if you like) 2 tablespoons flour 2 ⁄3 cup cider vinegar or to taste 1 cup water 1 ⁄3 cup sugar or to taste Salt and pepper About 8 cups sliced cooked potatoes (cook, then slice into 1⁄4-inch pieces)

Cook onion and celery in about 4 tablespoons bacon drippings until tender, but don’t let onion brown. Celery may still be crisp. Sprinkle flour over and blend. Mixture may be a bit lumpy. Add vinegar and water and cook, stirring until bubbly and slightly thick. Stir in sugar, cook about

5 minutes or so. Stir in potatoes and bacon, heat through, stirring to coat potatoes. Season. Serve warm or room temperature. May be made a couple days ahead.

Slaw stuffed peppers

For the Eastern Hills Journal and Price Hill Press readers who remembered buying these at local delis. This recipe is over 30 years old and is from a Farm Journal cookbook, so it should be authentic. You can cut it in half. And does anybody besides me remember calling bell peppers “mangoes?!”

⁄4 cup salt 4 oz. pimentos, diced 51⁄4 cups sugar 6 cups water 6 cups cider vinegar 11⁄2 teaspoons whole cloves 5 sticks cinnamon 11⁄2 tablespoons whole allspice 11⁄2 teaspoons salt 1

Slice tops off peppers and remove seeds. Soak overnight in solution of 4 quarts water and 1⁄4 cup salt. Drain. Combine cabbage and 1⁄4 cup salt and let stand overnight. Drain well. Mix pimentos and cabbage. Fill peppers. Tie tops on with thread. Put in 8-quart

12 whole green bell peppers 4 quarts water 1 ⁄4 cup salt 2 medium heads cabbage, finely shredded

PHOENIX, ARIZONA — If Pharmacist of the Year, 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.

Fluffy meringue: “If a little bit of egg yolk gets into my whites when I make meringue, and if I remove it, will the whites still whip up?” This is a tricky one. If there’s just a teeny bit of yolk and you can get it all out, the whites seem to beat up fine. But I would only do that if I had no other eggs. And it may not work in all recipes. Egg whites must be completely fat-free to whip properly. And the bowl you whip them in should be, too. When in doubt, wipe out the bowl with a bit of vinegar to remove any traces of fat, rinse and dry. You’ll get better volume with room temperature whites.

Rita’s recipe for German potato salad is based on that of her mother-in-law.THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD


We were in Pennsylvania this past weekend for the Mother Earth News Fair, where I was a presenter. My topic was Bible herbs and foods for vibrant health and longevity, and it was a well received presentation with lots of interaction with the participants. I had several Rita different Heikenfeld kinds of RITA’S KITCHEN onions on hand to talk about since onions are mentioned in the Book of Numbers and one of the most healthful veggies. One lady mentioned that onions planted next to cabbage make good garden companions, keeping both healthy. Then another person spoke up about potatoes. “Plant them next to corn and they’ll both do great,” he said. Strangely enough, that’s how we planted our onions this year, not having a clue they were good for each other. Maybe that’s why the onions we dug up for this German potato salad were so tasty. And next year we’ll plant the potatoes next to the corn.

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.

Pharmacy Best-Seller “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 4#7?=CA<%@ ><? $#%2"C%$C, “It helped me speak out more than I ;?C" =#, 6 5' @A#)<%@ '#AC $#%2"C%= 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 'C'#A& 4C%C2= =# 8<$8 <%, 9<( '#%=>? 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 called Procera AVH is the perfect supplement for increasing one’s brain power. If it worked for me, it can work for you!”

Milford man featured on a new Web series A Milford man is featured in the first episode of a web series, which has 20 entrepreneurs compete against each other for an opportunity to have their product sold on Walmart shelves. Vincent Rush, 50, shares his invention, Lynxsafe, a driving monitor that allows parents to follow their teenager's vehicle in realtime on the first episode of the reality series "Get on The Shelf." Thousands of business owners and inventors from around the country entered Walmart’s product contest. Each week, four different finalists will showcase their product in an effort to gain public votes. “Get on the Shelf cel-

ebrates the resilient and tenacious spirit of American entrepreneurs, many of whom have been working hard for a big break like this,” said Kelly Thompson, senior vice president of merchandising for “The web series creates more exposure for finalists to share their inspiring stories, which makes for captivating reality TV that’s also interactive since American consumers can vote for the next great product at” The five weekly shows, which go live on Tuesdays now through Oct. 22, feature a group of finalists under the same theme. The show can be viewed at getontheshelf.

Honey bees took over the porch Howdy Folks, A week ago at 3 a.m. I was up and went to the kitchen door and let Chessy in; she likes to be in the house when it’s cold. She likes to curl up by Ruth Ann's legs and sleep. She doesn't like to come in the house when it is warm outside. Chessy the other day came in and laid on my lap for a long time. She has her own disposition when she wants to cuddle she will, but when she doesn't want to forget it! Wednesday after the cardiac rehab we went to the Batavia Township Park for the P.E.R.I. picnic and meeting. There was a speaker from O.P.E.R.S. ( Ohio Public Employee's Retirement System). This lady was from Westerville. That is a long drive for her from

her office and where she lives. She answered lots of questions for the folks at the George picnic. The Rooks report on OLE FISHERMAN the secretary Lois was good, the entire group keeps her in their prayers and all are hopeful she will get better so she can attend the meetings. Last week I took honey out of the bee hives. I had six frames that I put in a plastic tub and set them in the basement and did not spin them out. On Thursday morning we spun the honey out and put the frames back in the tub. It was dribbling rain; I don't like to work with the honey bees when it is raining. I set the tub on the porch but didn't put the lid on. Then we went to the Grange Hall to meet with the furnace repair man. When we got home about two hours later the porch was full of honey bees; it looked like a full hive. When we left there were a few bees in the tub so someone told the other bees about the free honey. I put my honey bee coat and gloves on and took the tub in a wheel barrow and went and put the frames back in the hives. They are making honey so they should have enough honey to live all winter. We got seven pints this last time.

We have a couple to sell along with black raspberry plants. We picked some green beans in a bed we built along the garage, it is 8 feet long. While we were over at Grants Farm last Friday we got some onion sets. They are just about gone for the year. The bags were hanging in the barn some were dried up. We got enough to set a bed that is eight feet long and 2 1/2 feet wide. We should have some green onions yet this fall along with some more green beans. The ones we picked will make a good meal for us. It is amazing how much you can raise in a small space. I want to build another bed along side of the lumber shed. The counter in the kitchen looks good. Ruth Ann hasn't taken the jars to the basement yet. There are canned green beans, honey, peach jelly and relish; that looks good enough to eat and that we will do! While Ruth Ann and I were setting the bed of onions Ruth Ann had a chair to set in. When she got up to get more sets Chessy took over her chair. This cat is something else, we love her. Friday evening we went to some folks at Nicholsville for a picnic. There was a good crowd with lots of good food like country folks make. Thanks Gary and Diane. Ruth Ann and I went to a family reunion Sunday afternoon at the Nause home on Burdsal Road. I grew up with

several of the Nause family in Newtonsville. Ruth Ann went to school with some of them too. We thank Jerry and his lovely wife Sandy for the invitation. They sure have a beautiful farm and home. Jerry is very involved in the O.V.A.M. and does a lot of work on the grounds especially the sawmill. The Faith Tabernacle Church on Bauer Road out of Owensville will have a church yard sale, Oct. 4 and 5. All the proceeds from this will go toward the Christmas for Kids. It costs $50 to supply each child with Christmas gifts. They have helped more than 150 in the past two years. They will also have a singing coming up sometime in October. Watch for that too. The Old Bethel M.E. Church Homecoming will be Sunday, Oct. 6, at 2 p.m. Come and hear some good music by the Kinner Express and John Hale and enjoy reminiscing with friends. Remember the Pumpkin Run at the Clermont County Fairgrounds, sponsored by the Northeastern Lions Club held Oct. 4-6. 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.

It’s a celebration of the season with an artsy twist. The Woman’s Art Club Cultural Center, known as The Barn, is hosting Artoberfest, 6-9 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 5. “We wanted to center the whole thing around art, but it’s going to feel like a fall festival,” said Jan Boone, an Artoberfest Committee member and Woman’s Art Club Foundation President. “We want to celebrate a very successful year, and our favorite season at The Barn.” Fifty West Brewing Co., which is on Wooster Pike in Columbia Township, will bring nine different beers to taste, and there will be brats, soft pretzels and other Oktoberfest-style food.

place for performances, parties or art classrooms. A pumpkin-decorating contest for Artoberfest will be set up in the loft, and guests are encouraged to bring pumpkins – scary or silly – to compete for cash, gift cards and more, Boone said. Celtic band Changeling is performing that night, and there will be a chance to try Contra dancing, a communalstyle folk dance. Guests can also get a sneak peek at the Woman’s Art Club all-member show. Boone said the artists have agreed to donate 30 percent of the proceeds from art sales to The Barn during the event. “The art fills up the whole gallery and that’s where the music and activities are,” she said.
