New leader a priority for candidates By Keith BieryGolick

STONELICK TWP. — Three incumbent Clermont Northeastern Board of Education members are running for re-election, but they face competition from two challengers. Incumbent Alex Cunningham, a manager for the Clermont County Engineer’s Office, and challenger Cecil Greene, an information security officer for a bank, are running for one seat – an unexpired term. Incumbents Danny Ilhardt, a farmer, and David Pennington, a security analyst for a bank, are running for two seats. They face competition from Mike Mantel, the service director for Miami Township. Pennington is running as a write-in candidate because not enough of his signatures were certified by the Clermont County Board of Elections. “I could contest it, but unfortunately (the board of elections) met on a Monday and my deadline to file as a write-in candidate was the Friday before that,” Pennington said. “So if for some reason I contested and it didn’t get overturned I’d be done.” Cunningham said the biggest issue facing the district is declining enrollment numbers. “Enrollment is tied directly to (our) funding struggles,” he said. “We should try to encourage ... development of any kind, so you can see young families with students move in and start to see enrollment numbers pick up.” For Greene, the district’s rating on the state report card is the biggest issue. “We were an excellent-rated school and now we are currently one of the schools with the lowest scores in the county,” he said. “Obviously we need to do some more professional development – but it all starts with the superintendent. We need to get one in here who lives in the district. That’s the start of it.” Superintendent Ralph Shell’s contract expires at the

end of next school year, and Ilhardt said finding his replacement is the biggest issue in his mind. “Hopefully Cunningham we can find somebody with a lot of knowledge like (Shell) has and a super personality like (former Superintendent) Neil (Leist) had,” he said. Mantel Greene agreed replacing Shell was one of the board’s biggest responsibilities and said it was the primary reason he was running. “I want to be part of the procIlhardt ess that selects a superintendent that will stick around for a while,” he said. Cunningham, a board member who voted to extend Shell’s contract, defended Mantel the board’s decision to re-up his contract earlier this year. “At the time, we were uncertain what our state budget would be. Mr. Shell went to bat Pennington for district very hard and got ... extra (money for the district) this year,” he said. “I clearly stated (when we approved his new contract) that this would be the last contract I would vote for Mr. Shell.” Cunningham said the upcoming election also made timing difficult for a comprehensive superintendent search. Greene, who was not on the board, disagreed with the deciSee CNE, Page A2

Goshen school audit comes back ‘clean’ Previous finding fully corrected By Keith BieryGolick

GOSHEN — A recent audit of the Goshen Local School District showed nothing wrong with the district’s financial reporting. “The auditor’s job is to find something. It’s what they get paid to do,” said board member John Gray. In this case, no findings were issued against the district. In addition, a previous finding has been fully corrected, according to the audit. The district received a wire transfer for $259,752 in January 2012. The transfer was payment for a 2002 Certificate of Participation debt fund. When the district received the transfer, officials increased its general checking balance but did not record the transfer in its accounting system. This caused the district’s fund balance to be understated, according to the audit. “Failure to properly post transactions could result in in-

accurate financial statements, reduce the accountability over district funds, and reduces the board’s ability to monitor financial activity and make informed financial decisions,” the audit stated. “We recommend the district implement controls to ensure that all transactions are properly posted. This will allow the District to report accurate balances and classifications.” The finding was listed as a material weakness in the audit - district officials did not agree. The finding was “very misleading,” according to the district’s official response recorded in the audit. “The district has controls in place to maintain accurate statements,” officials wrote. “I truly feel that one receipt out of thousands that are posted annually should not generate a comment to implement controls.” Audits are a good check and balance system for the district to be held accountable to taxpayers, said Superintendent Darrell Edwards. “The interesting thing about the audit is they are also

checking for compliance on a few other issues that have nothing to do with financials,” he said. This year, the audit evaluated whether the school board updated its anti-bullying policy in accordance with the Ohio Revised Code. The most recent updates from the board included language prohibiting harassment of students “on a school bus” or by an “electronic act.” Although the audit came back “clean,” according to Treasurer Todd Shinkle, and the district received the Auditor of the State Award, there was room for improvement, Auditor of State Dave Yost wrote in a letter to the school board. Yost addressed athletic receipts, public records training, capital assets and student fundraiser forms. “Every control has a cost is the way I look at it,” Shinkle said. Nevertheless, the district implemented measures to address Yost’s recommendations. The audit studied a period from July 1, 2012 to June 30, 2013.

sion to extend Shell’s contract but said that wouldn’t negatively affect the board if he was elected. “I would work with the

superintendent as much as I could,” he said. “But it’s important to start recruiting pretty soon and hopefully find someone willing to move into the district.” Ilhardt also voted for Shell’s extension and said the board didn’t want to rush into anything. “We’ve done that before. When January

comes around, whoever is on the board at that time needs to do a well thought out and responsible search for a superintendent,” he said. Pennington was the only member of the board to vote against Shell’s contract extension. Shell has contributed to the district’s drop in performance because he

was viewed as short-term solution, Pennington said. “I strongly feel any time you’re in an interim state and you stay in that interim state it’s not a positive thing – there are a lot of uncertainties,” he said. Mantel said the district’s report card isn’t as bad as it looks and if he was elected he would try to educate the public on

how to properly interpret it. “While there were some bad scores on there, a few bad scores don’t necessarily reflect poorly on the district, it reflects poorly on those demographics,” he said. “It’s learning how to read that report (card) as much as it is (about) raising those numbers.”

Clermont Northeastern FFA members attended the recent 52nd annual Farm Science Review held in London, Ohio. This trip was educational with students seeing different types of farming equipment, watching field demonstrations and seeing anything that is new in the agricultural industry. There were about 50 FFA members who went to the Farm Science Review from Clermont Northeastern. There were more than 600 different exhibits that students could walk through and receive pamphlets on different agricultural information. The members all gained new information and wrote a report on the trip.

Commissioner Bob Proud said there’s nothing on the vacated road or the adjacent properties. Rabolt said that the process is basically the reverse of creating a road.

Goshen programs recognized by the state

Three Goshen Local School Districts have been recognized by the Southwest Region of the Ohio School Boards Association. “Goshen Reads,” which is a volunteer run reading intervention program for students in kindergarten to third grade, was one of three programs in Southwest Ohio recognized as an “Outstanding Volunteer Program.” “Goshen Reads” is made up of “Just Reads” and “Project More” which has proven that by providing one on one tutoring by a caring volunteer in the community can contribute to closing the achievement gap with young readers. Individuals interested in volunteering can con-

CNE at district soil judging contest

MembersfromtheClermont Northeastern High School FFA chapter attended the district soil-judging contest at Niederman Farms in Butler County. Hannah Bowles who was a member of the rural soil judging team placed eighth individual overall in the district contest. Other members of the rural team were Alysa Irvin, Wesley Seitz, and Brian Switzer. The urban soil judging team members were Chris Lindsley, Jennifer Luce, Jasmine Eichenlaub and Alex Miller. At the soil judging, there were two different types of contests rural and

urban. Both contests had to take a soil test and a soil survey. The people participating in the rural soil contest had to look for the slope of soil, erosion or depth of soil, texture of Soil, and the drainage of the soil. The rural contest also had to look for land capability, land use and recommended conservation practices. For the students participating in the urban soil contest, they were looking for the degree of limitations for buildings with basements, septic tank absorption fields, driveways and local roads, lawns, gardens and landscaping.

FAMILY Possible meteor spotted by Milford man PET CENTER Anderson Township

Gannett News Service

It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s a meteor? Several spotters in Kentucky, Ohio and Indiana reported seeing a large meteor streaking across the sky the morning of Sept. 26. Most of the reports came from the Louisville and southern Indiana areas.

The American Meteor Society, which tracks meteor spottings across the country, had received 12 reports from Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana of the sighting as of 8:30 a.m. A man in Milford reported on the site that he saw the meteor at 7:05 a.m. “A flash caught my eye and I initially thought it was a lower flying

plane. But then saw the debris and knew what it was,” he wrote on the site. A spotter in the city of Hamilton reported seeing the fireball at 7:06 a.m. “Was just bright white when first seen, then the fire trail appeared for a few seconds, broke into two bright white pieces then disappeared,” she wrote on the society’s

website. There were also reports from Louisville, Nicholasville, Ky. and Georgetown, Ind. among other places. Officials with the National Weather Service in Wilmington, which covers southwest Ohio, southeast Indiana and Northern Kentucky, said they had received no reports of the meteor.

incinnati Country Day first-graders recently ventured outdoors for a field trip to explore water in the natural world at the Greenacres pond site in Indian Hill. Students learned that the pond is composed of different habitats, each home to a variety of creatures with adaptations for life in a watery environment. The first-graders used dip nets at the pond to catch organisms for observation. They found: dragonfly nymphs, damselfly nymphs, fresh water mussels, water striders, tadpoles, boatman, water beetles and aquatic snails.

All were returned to the pond after students observed them through an insect magnifier box. First-graders used a Magiscope to view plankton. The students also heard about water availability in the field and woods, and checked logs for salamanders. At the stream table, they saw how water moves soil and creates channels that meander, just as real streams do. During the erosion trays demonstration, students saw how effectively plants hold soil in place.

Preseason fire sparks CNE girls to meet goals By Mark D. Motz

OWENSVILLE — A bonfire this time of year sounds nice. A bonfire in the heat and humidity of August sounds a bit uncomfortable. Which it was. By design. The Clermont Northeastern volleyball team used the August fire to spark itself as part of a preseason bonding period that also included a scavenger hunt and the distribution of pledge cards. The cards asked each player to give110 percent each moment on the court, to rely on her teammates and to do her own job. They also listed team goals for the year. “We had two goals for the season,” CNE head coach Carmen Tobe said. “Win the Southern Buckeye Conference title and get past the first round of the (Division II sectional) tournament.” Players signed and kept the cards. And the goals? Check and check. The Rockets captured the Southern Buckeye National with a 9-1 league record while going 17-6 overall in the regular season. CNE beat Clinton Massie in straight sets in the opening round Oct. 14, then dispatched New Richmond 25-18, 25-19, 18-25, 25-17 to advance to the sectional finals Oct. 19 against top-seeded Wyoming. They lost 25-11, 25-7, 25-10. Junior setters Katie Hill and sophomore Lindsay Wright proved invaluable cogs in the Rocket engine. “I run a 6-2 (offense), but Katie Hill is really the setter,” Tobe said. “When you look at the statistics, they’re not comparable at all. Katie gets the majority of the sets. We swung Lindsay around to be more of a receiver and passer and she’s

really effective.” Hill said passes serve as boon and bane in her role as setter. “Good passes are the key,” she said. “When I get a good pass, I can put the ball anywhere. The hardest part

(about being a setter) is chasing the passes, because they aren’t always where they’re supposed to be.” Hill said communication is crucial in her position as well. She calls the serves and blocking schemes, offers encouragement to teammates and keeps a general running commentary going for the entire match. Not all of it is volleyball related. “I feel like when we focus on just volleyball, we get kind of tight,” she said. “I try to keep it loose on the floor.” Both Hill and Wright started playing volleyball in third grade. Both moved into club ball not long after, Hill with Positively Charged and Wright with Cincy East. “It just means we work really hard,” Wright said. “We knew that it would be tough because we graduated two good players from last year. After we lost to Williamsburg, we knew we had to bust our butts to win the league. When we beat them the second time we played, we knew we could reach our goals.”

MILFORD — The eight-mile loop the Milford High School boys cross country team traverses around campus every other week is less like Fight Club – no first and second rules forbid discussing the loop – and more like a penance. While the loop tests and toughens body and mind like Fight Club, especially for runners used to competing at 3.1 miles, it’s not exactly a secret. Eagles head coach Dave Ackerman mapped it out and ran it himself back in 2000 or 2001, after missing a marathon workout with a buddy. He ran it hard and shared his time with his team. In the dozen or so years since, the loop has become a badge of honor for Milford runners vying to land on the list of top 10 loop times. Sophomore A.J. Erdaty made the list this season running at a sub-six-minute-mile pace to do so. In a more official capacity, Erdaty cracked the 17-minute barrier in the Eastern Cincinnati Conference meet to take fifth place in the league. He hopes to drop another 15 seconds from his time by the end of the season and reach the Division I regional meet, if not state. “A couple of my teammates have run faster the last couple of weeks,” he said. “They’re pushing me (notably junior John Brown, who was a mere four second behind Erdaty in the ECC meet) and that’s going to help me get faster.” Erdaty likes the singular and lengthy nature of cross country. “I run distance in track, but all of track isn’t focused on distance running or even running at all,” he said. “That’s what I like about cross country. It’s all about running a distance and the work you do to get ready for it. “During practice it’s really important that you run together as a team, that you push one another. During a race, you’re so tired you can’t really focus on anything but your own run, so you have to trust the practice you put in with your team.” Ackerman said Erdaty has the team element down pat. “He leads very simply by going out and leading the runners every single practice,” he said. “Yeah, somebody may pass him for a bit, but he’s right there in front of everybody all the time. “AJ is consistent. As fresh-

interest. (“Sporting” because Erdaty is more than an athlete. Among other things, he is a Boy Scout who spent two weeks hiking through Utah over the summer and a musician who plays clarinet in the Milford band.) “I found a sport I was really good at – not that I was bad at soccer – but that I really enjoyed,” Erdaty said. “Definitely the mind-clearing part of it.

The Milford High School boy’s soccer team gave eighth-year head coach Brian Croston his 100th career win and the top spot on MHS’ all-time wins list in style as the Eagles rolled to a 7-1 win over Colerain in the opening round of the OHSAA Tournament on Oct. at Eagle Stadium.

board membership to advance myself, or anyone affiliated with me. My motivations are based solely upon Alex seeing CNE Cunningham COMMUNITY PRESS students succeed. There GUEST COLUMNIST should be no question of ulterior motives or personal agenda. I don’t need a disclaimer, I just want to see CNE succeed. 3. Have a common sense approach - Like many people in our district, I grew up in the household of a small business owner. An entrepreneurial environment fosters common sense thought. We did not have the luxury of frivolous

expenditures. I bring that same common sense approach to the school board. We must live within our financial means. I ask the simple questions that allow me to make decisions that reflect the values of the community. 4. Should not attempt to be an administrator - The school board employs a superintendent to administer the day-today activities of the district. Board members do not sit on interview panels, nor should they. I will not vote to overwrite the recommendations of an interview committee in order to promote my personal preferences. When five board members attempt to administrate, chaos ensues. Answering to six different bosses is not fair to any employee. As a board member I will continue

to stick to my responsibilities: Charting the direction of the district, and selecting superintendent/treasurer. As your school board member you will be able to count on me to consistently represent the values of our community while seeking out the best interests of our students, without the need for any disclaimers. I invite you to find out more about me, and how I stand on specific issues like common core, finding a superintendent, and state test scores, by visiting my website, or reaching out to me via email, Alex Cunnningham is a candidate for CNE school board.

Vote to make a difference in Goshen Twp. My name is Jeff Scheadler, 47, and I am running for the office of trustee for Goshen Township this November. I have lived and supported Goshen all of my life, graduating from Goshen High School in 1984. In 1988, I married my best friend and love of my life, Terri Scheadler. Together we have raised twins, Travis and Tiffany, who are top of their senior class at GHS and are heading to college next year. For 16 years, I have owned my own business in Goshen, Scheadler Underground. For 12 years, I have coached youth soccer teams for Goshen Youth Soccer Association (GYSA), beginning with my son’s team. I am the president of the association and my wife is the district representative. The board members and I have spent countless hours in soccer to bring the program

to the prestige it is at today. We found and leased property to construct the 12-acre field that GYSA Jeff calls home Scheadler COMMUNITY PRESS and has even held regional GUEST COLUMNIST tournaments while I have been president. I was president of the Park Board that found and began the construction of Marr Park next to Goshen Middle School. I have been awarded and recognized numerous times for my volunteerism and success in Goshen. I received the “Clermont 20/20 Salute to Leaders” award in March of 2008 for my commitment to GYSA and I received the “LOGI’S Goshen Community Award for volunteerism in

May of 2008. I have even been recognized by Linda Fraley, Jean Schmidt, the Ohio Senate, and the Ohio House of Representatives for my service, commitment, and dedication. I want to take all of these values and success into office with me as trustee to serve the community in another way and help Goshen thrive. I want to bring more businesses to Goshen and use the profits to fund and improve our fire department, police department, and maintenance department of Goshen. As a community, I want Goshen to have a larger voice in activities throughout Clermont County, so our community may obtain more grants from the state to fund a variety of projects in our community. Not just our community, but each individual citizen should be able to have a

voice. I will unify Goshen to hear every single issue any citizen offers to my attention. Above all, the biggest thing to being a trustee is to be honest and tell the people of Goshen the truth. I am going to confront our problems and work, to the best of my ability to solve these problems. Goshen is the perfect place to live, grow, and raise a family just like I’ve done. Our township is incredible, but we have issues that need to be fixed. With my hard work and dedication as recognized through multiple awards, I can get things done. I can make a difference – we can make a difference. All it takes to make this change is your vote. Let’s make Goshen the township we want it to be. Jeff Scheadler is a candidate for Goshen Township trustee.

CH@TROOM Last week’s question The Ohio legislature is considering limiting non-family passengers in a teenager’s car, and establishing a 10 p.m. curfew for teen drivers. Is this a good idea? Why or why not?

“Put yourself in the position of a police officer who has to enforce such a law. Unless someone is stopped for another offense, how is an officer to know who is a “teenager”? How many young looking adults would get stopped and how many older looking teens would be missed? Who is a family member? “How easy is it for your friend to become your “brother or sister” if stopped? Nothing requires the family member to produce ID. This might look like a good idea to some people but it is totally unenforceable. Why waste our legislature’s time with no real result?” F.S.D.

“Limiting number of passengers and the curfew are both fine ideas, but good luck to the authorities enforcing it. “Unfortunately, they don’t catch enough speeders, redlight runners, texting drivers, or drunken idiots as it is. “It’ll take a lot more police and troopers on the roads to

make a dent in all the reckless teenage driving that occurs, especially on weekends during the warm months; meanwhile, the body count will continue to rise, and safe teen drivers will suffer because of the morons.” TRog

“If this is for a first-year teenaged driver, I am all for it. The first year an average teenager has much peer pressure and usually is the one who is delegated to do all the driving. “They are not experienced enough as not to let distractions interfere with their driving, and cell phones are the largest part of distraction.” O.H.R.

My oldest child started kindergarten this year and will be followed by my other children in the coming years. There has never been a question as to where my family would call home, we are Rockets for life. 2. Put CNE students first - I have no aspirations to use


Could be 80-year-olds. “The only reason such a law makes sense in today’s overbearing and over-reacting world is that you need to keep your kids out of the cop’s computer.

“Yes, it’s a very good idea. Many other states have already adopted longer training periods and longer probationary periods for young drivers. “Statistics prove that among the causes of teenage automobile accidents, inexperience, distractions and a feeling of invincibility are at the top of the list. “A17-year-old driving with a gang of kids in the car, stereo blasting, is a recipe for disaster. Studies show that older adults slow down and drive more cautiously when passengers are in the car. “It is the opposite with young drivers. They become more aggressive. “With regard to the curfew, I’m sure accommodations could be made for the teen who needs to drive home from work after 10 p.m.

“Let the kids start learning to drive at an earlier age, limit the number of passengers they can have, keep them off the roads late at night. “Give them a chance to become good, safe drivers and we’ll all be safer and live longer.” R.W.J.

Let’s work to bring state park back to life I have a vision and a plan. Why me? A former trustee ... with five years trustee experience … A Vietnam veteran … A resident of Wayne Township for 20 years … proud of it! … Our greatest asset is Stonelick Lake and Park … I have a plan for keeping our park, enhancing it while retaining our rural atmosphere ... Bringing in outside money and creating local jobs. Dennis Elchlinger

What is in it for you?

It is of vital importance that the state does not sell the park. Keep it – develop it – manage it – and prosper from it. We can create a clean, safe, enjoyable, natural environment for Wayne Township and surrounding communities. Our plans include: expanding on the Friends of Stonelick Lake’s fantastic work by adding a ranger’s station, restaurants, a historic bed and breakfast, wedding pavilion, club house, expanded walking, biking and horse trails, music in the park, youth and senior skill training, educational programs and much more. All of this leads to local jobs.


Stonelick Park

Is the heart of our township. With cooperation, local residents and organizations working together, the lake and park will become a tremendous asset while retaining our rural atmosphere. Selling off the Park to a developer is like placing a bandage on a cut artery. We need to build on the lake and surrounding area, enhance our local businesses, and bring life back to our community. Let’s get started by bringing our park back to life by working and prospering together. Don’t sell the park – keep it – fix it – profit from it.

Your trustees need

A plan for the future of our township, not just a ho-hum attitude. And I have a plan. We need to promote our township and bring it back to life. There is no better way of doing this than by developing and expanding what we have. Let’s bring our park and lake back to life.

Let’s work.

Together and once more become the heart of Clermont County. I served as trustee from 2005 to 2009 and learned a lot. I would like another chance to use my experience and knowledge for you, the citizens of Wayne Township. A vote for me brings in two people. My wife of 41 years, Elizabeth, continues to inspire me with her plans, her thoughts and her ideas for the betterment of our community. Together we are a team. Dennis Elchlinger is a candidate for Wayne Township trustee.

Scare up terrific treats for Halloween

I didn’t realize that Halloween is the second most commercially successful and decorated holiday right behind Christmas. We decorate with produce from the garden, like birdRita house Heikenfeld gourds, RITA’S KITCHEN pumpkins, winter squash and field corn. Pretty generic compared to a lot of folks. Halloween is fun for me since I get to see the little ones in their costumes and go “begging” with them. I also learned that the kids don’t use the word “begging” and have no clue as to what it means. I have fun telling them about the meaning and how my siblings and I went “begging” through our neighborhood when we were kids oh, so long ago.

4 cups coarsely chopped salted pretzels Caramel2 cups sugar 1 ⁄2 cup water 2 ⁄3 cup whipping cream 2 cups mini marshmallows

Deb Goulding’s bourbon bacon caramel popcorn

This is fun for the kids. Let them scoop the flesh and seeds out of little pumpkins. The seeds can be roasted at about 300 degrees. I like to toss them with melted butter or olive oil, shake on some garlic powder, seasoning salt or cayenne pepper. You can do whatever you want with them. Roast for about 40 minutes, stirring occasionally.

I promised you this recipe and you’ll be glad I did. Deb, executive chef at the Price Hill Kroger, was a guest on my cable show. She made her now-famous bourbon bacon caramel popcorn. Definitely an adult snack for Halloween! For my traditional caramel corn recipe, check out my blog. 3 strips applewood smoked bacon 1 3 oz. bag popcorn, plain (popped) 1 ⁄2 cup butter, unsalted 1 cup dark brown sugar 1 ⁄4 cup maple syrup 1 ⁄3 cup bourbon 2 tablespoons vanilla extract 1 ⁄4 teaspoon salt 1 ⁄4 teaspoon baking soda

Heat oven to 250 degrees. Fry bacon and set aside on papered tray to cool. Spread popcorn on papered tray and crumble bacon over top. In medium saucepan, add butter, brown sugar and maple syrup, then bring to boil, stirring constantly. Reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and add the bourbon, vanilla extract, salt and baking soda, and stir until thoroughly mixed. Pour the caramel mixture over the popcorn and stir to coat. Put in oven on sprayed cookie sheets for 1 hour and stir up the popcorn every 15 minutes.

Caramel popcorn, peanut and pretzel bars Doesn’t this sound good? I’m definitely going to make this treat. Thanks to Mary J. who gave this to me. “Salty and sweet all at the same time,” she said. 12 cups plain popped popcorn 1 generous cup salted peanuts or favorite salted nuts, coarsely chopped

Rita shares the recipe for Deb Goulding’s famous bourbon bacon caramel popcorn.THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD.

Spray a 9-inch by 13inch baking dish. Mix together popcorn, peanuts and pretzels. Put sugar and water in a nonstick or heavy medium saucepan, and bring to a boil over medium high heat. Boil, without stirring, until mixture looks amber colored, about 8-12 minutes. Remove from heat and slowly whisk in heavy cream. Be careful - cream will sputter. Stir in marshmallows until melted. Using sprayed spatula, pour over popcorn mixture until everything is coated. Pour into pan. Spay a piece of foil and use that to press mixture evenly. Cool and cut into bars. Store at room temperature, covered.

Apples or Oranges?

You make small choices every day.

Halloween hash in pumpkin bowls

1 pound lean ground beef 1 cup chopped onion 1 teaspoon garlic, minced 1 cup stewed tomatoes Corn, start with 1 generous cup and go from there Chili powder, salt and pepper to taste 1 ⁄4 pound grated cheddar cheese plus extra for sprinkling on top Nachos or large Fritos for scooping

Cook beef, onion and garlic until meat is done. Add tomatoes and corn. Cover and simmer over low heat 10 minutes. Stir in cheese. Serve with nachos and more cheese.

With something as big as cancer care, why wouldn’t you make your own choice?

Tip from Rita’s kitchen

Keep those Jack-OLanterns plump. Mix 2 tablespoons vinegar and a teaspoon of lemon juice into 3 cups of water. Brush over carved areas. After it dries, rub carved surfaces with petroleum jelly.

The recipe for brisket called for slow cooking 9-12 hours for a 3-pound brisket. I bought a new slow cooker and the brisket was done in 7 hours. So just check after around 7 hours; if it needs more cooking, then continue to cook. Rita Nader Heikenfeld is an herbalist, educator and author. Find her blog online at Cincinnati.Com/blogs.

Careful because E-Quick debit card can have issues Many people love to use debit cards to pay for things because they are fast and convenient. Even the state of Ohio uses such cards for child support payments. But a local woman said she ran into major problems recently when she tried to use her card. Joann Cafferky of Batavia has used an EQuick debit card from the child support bureau for several years without a problem. But she had an issue recently when she tried to withdraw money from an ATM machine. “I put my card in, entered my pin number

Later, after checking her child support account online, Cafferky said she learned, “When they processed it the first time they took my money out.” That happened even though the machine said it couldn’t be done and – more importantly – Cafferky never got the money. I went to the standalone ATM machine in Milford and found it was now working. The big problem is proving it wasn’t working correctly when Cafferky tried to withdraw her funds. She had complained to managers at Fifth Third Bank and the E-Quick card but

and it said, ‘Processing, please wait.’ In less then a minute it said, ‘Can’t process Howard this transAin action at HEY HOWARD! this time, try again later.’” When she tried again, Cafferky said she received a notice that there were insufficient funds in her account. She wanted $440, and knew the money was there, but received the same notice when she tried again to withdraw the funds.

was told it could be several weeks before she’d get an answer. “It’s $440, and to me that’s a car payment and electric bill, my daughter’s lunch money. That’s what the money was for and I’m waiting on it and they’re telling me I’m going to have to wait 45 to 90 days,” Cafferky said. Cafferky said she had to borrow money from her family in order to pay her bills. In the meantime, I contacted Fifth Third Bank and the Ohio Department of Jobs and Family Services in Columbus, which manages the child support

payment program. Fifth Third bank workers checked the ATM machine records and found there was a problem on the day in question. They then returned the money to Cafferky’s E-Quick card. A spokesman for the state of Ohio tells me Cafferky and others do not have to use a debit card in order to get their child support money. They can get a check mailed to them or, better yet, they can have their money deposited directly into their bank account. That direct deposit is something I highly recommend because it not

only assures quick access to your funds, but it lets you avoid fees associated with that E-Quick card. You get one free withdrawal from the card each month, but then must pay 75 cents for each subsequent withdrawal – and those fees can add up. Cafferky said she agrees with me and will switch to direct deposit into her bank account. Howard Ain’s column appears bi-weekly in the Community Press newspapers.

Rehab finished, but doc says no fishing yet Howdy Folks, It is going good here at our house. I finished rehab last week. This will save us some mileage and gasoline. Friday we went to the Bick Primary School here in Bethel along with Jim Rees to help with the grandparents tea. There was a big crowd. This was the second time for us and for Jim. We put out 300 cookies, two to a napkin. Poured tea for the grandparents and orange drink for the children. The Bethel Lions Club members took turns last week and Tuesday and Wednesday of this week to serve. The Lions Club helps the school in several different ways. Tuesday we went to the Adult Day Care Center at the Clermont Senior Services and talked to the seniors. This is very enjoyable for us.


There are probably 50 or so. I talked about the things they did when they were kids, especially at Halloween; this

pleases them. Last week I woke up one morning and Chessy was sleeping on my pillow. She stretches out and that takes up over half of the pillow. While we were watching television the other evening we were having a snack. Chessy took her paw and tried to pull Ruth Ann’s hand to her mouth. This cat is such a blessing to us. She is so independent; when she wants to come in OK, but when she doesn’t no calling will get her in. We were reading a

couple of books this week – one is “Shanty Boat” by Hubard and the other one is the “Duck Commander.” I looked out at the garbage can and there sat a yellow cat. It was meowing so we went out and gave it some dry cat food. It ate some then went away and after a while it came back; it was a male cat. I think it would like to have come in the house. Now Chessy is not happy about this feller that is trying to be a house cat. The next morning it was gone. I imagine it was looking for a female cat. Friday evening the 50-plus couples from the Bethel United Methodist Church met at the church for their monthly covered dish get-together. There was a good group and all enjoyed the evening and the devotions and word games.

Saturday morning we went to Lake Waynoka for a craft show; there was a good bunch of crafters there. We got to meet several folks. This is always a very enjoyable event. This Saturday we will go to St. Gertrude Church in Madeira for a craft show. We were there last year and did real good and met lots of folks. That was the first year for us. We really got a warm welcome; it was great. Sunday evening the Bethel United Methodist Church had a chili cook off. The men fixed the chili and the ladies made the desserts. Ruth Ann made an apple crisp. There were so many desserts so the apple crisp was not all eaten. So this past Monday Ruth Ann and I had a cup of coffee and a bowl of the good apple crisp. This gal of mine

crappie tournament last Sunday was improving in weight; first place was 5 pounds for 7 fish, second place was 4-3/4 pounds, third place was 4 pounds. The fish off will be held Oct. 26-27, there will be 17 boats in the event. This will be the last one for this year. We haven’t gotten on the lake yet to fish. The doctor said it would not be good for me to be casting. He doesn’t know about using live bait, you don’t use your arm as much as in casting artificial bait. Start your week by going to the house of worship of your choice and praise the Good Lord. God Bless All. More Later.

sure knows how to bake a fine dessert and I like all she bakes. When we have a family gathering she makes at least three different kinds of pies. Since I finished the rehab at Clermont Mercy Hospital we have a treadmill and another piece of exercise equipment here in our basement so we can use them. This is good for Ruth Ann too. We had some green onions for supper last night and they were so tender. We have some spinach to cut again this will be the second time. I am starting to get our place cleaned up. The garden and some of the other parts got in pretty bad shape because I could not take care of it. But I am thankful to the Lord I am getting better. I talked to Mike at the Boar’s Head Bait Shop in Afton and he said the

Donate food for hungry pets Panera Bread and KennelResorts in Milford are partnering for the third straight year to help address the needs of hungry pets in the Cincinnati area. The One Ton Pet Food Drive to support the Cincinnati Pet Food Pantry kicked off on Sept. 29 and will run for four weeks. The goal is to collect 2,000 pounds of pet food that will be given to low-income families to help them feed their pets in these difficult economic times. Collection barrels will be located at Panera Bread locations - Harper’s Point, Milford and Eastgate. Unexpired, unopened pet food is needed for dogs and cats, as well as food for other animals, such as hamsters, birds, fish etc. The Cincinnati Pet

Food Pantry is a volunteer run, non-profit organization that distributes food monthly from a warehouse located in Madisonville. Shannon DeBra, a local attorney, who started the organization, said “When families are having a difficult time feeding their children, you can see why they might not have the resources to feed their dog or cat. Helping these families keep their pets at home prevents additional strain on local rescue organizations and shelters that are already overcrowded. The pet food is given to low income families at no charge after they verify their eligibility.” Jim Pottebaum, owner of KennelResorts said “It is so uplifting to find dedicated volunteers like those at the Cincinnati Pet

Food Panty who give so much of themselves to help all the needy pets of our community. Panera Bread and KennelResorts are happy to help this wonderful organization in any way that we can. We ask all members of our community to drop off your pet food contribution at one of the four Panera locations or to give a monetary donation.” A check can be made out to the Cincinnati Pet Food Pantry and mailed to KennelResorts, 5825 Meadowview Drive, Milford, OH 45150. Or call KennelResorts at 8317297 to give a credit card contribution to the One Ton Pet Food Drive. 100 percent of all monetary contributions will go to purchase pet food for the thousands of hungry dogs and cats in our community.
