Extra cash in CNE funds explained By Keith BieryGolick

STONELICK TWP. — In the wake of Clermont Northeastern’s supply list revelations, which the vice president of the school board said “shocked” him, a few eyebrows were raised about the amount of money in the district’s building support funds. The school estimates supply fees for the elementary school can get as high as $84 per student. In seventh grade, each student is required to buy two boxes of tissues, a roll of paper towels, a pack of construction paper, a ream of copy paper, a calculator, pens, pencils, erasers, colored pencils and highlighters – among other items. Members of the community at previous school board meetings asked if the school district should pay for some of those costs. Cecil Greene, a resident with three children at CNE High School, questioned board member Bob Havrilla about the almost $60,000 in building support funds. Havrilla responded by saying it was something that concerned him too. “My concern was when you look in the budget you see all that money, what can that money be used for?” he said. Those funds are donated by the community and generated by fundraisers, Havrilla said. “We hear the community say

It’s collection time



we have all these problems with supply fees,” he said. “Let’s look at how we can lower fees for students.” But Havrilla said building principals decide how to use that money, giving the school board limited influence over how it is spent. “The only time that something is spent has to have board approval is when it meets the bid criteria,” said Brian Switzer, board treasurer. When JoAnn Beamer was the principal at CNE’s intermediate school she wanted to construct a canopy for the school. That had to be voted on by the board, Switzer said. “The numbers look inflated a lot of times because student field trips run through here,” he said. There are usually at least 15 field trips coming in and out of the building funds at any given time, Switzer said. About the supply lists, Superintendent Ralph Shell said he’s talked to the principals about it. “They are in the process of hopefully pairing that list down,” he said.

STONELICK TWP. — The Clermont Northeastern School Board may have broken the law when its went into executive session last month to discuss “negotiations, personnel and district security.” Officials discussed 23 items for more than two hours in what board member Alex Cunningham described as “an executive work session.” The board talked about “dress code,” “communication,” “common core,” “athletic project proposals” and other issues, according to a list of topics presented to board members at the beginning of the meeting. When pressed about the ex-

ecutive session, Cunningham said the majority of the time was spent discussing security and collective bargaining with the district’s custodial union. “The other stuff played a small role in the meeting,” he said. “No motions were made on anything.” Board member David Pennington said it was tough to say how much time was spent on items other than negotiations, personnel and security be-


cause officials jumped back and forth between topics so much. “But I can tell you we didn’t spend three hours talking about security,”

he said. “Even if you spent 30 seconds on (a topic meant for an open meeting), you shouldn’t of.” Pennington was the board member who made the motion to go into executive session, but he said after receiving the list of topics he told the other members they couldn’t talk about everything. Pennington said discussion carried on and what the board

The reasons are: » To consider the appointment, employment, dismissal, discipline, promotion, demotion, or compensation of a public employee or official. » To consider the purchase of property for public purposes, or for the sale of property at competitive bidding. » Conferences with an attorney concerning pending or imminent court action. » Preparing for, conductSee BOARD, Page A2 Vol. 33 No. 34 © 2013 The Community Press ALL RIGHTS RESERVED

Cecil Greene, a resident who recently ran for school board but did not win. “The community did not hire you to lie, conceal or misrepresent the information used to govern this school district.” Greene told the board he believed only four of the 23 items should have been discussed in executive session. He called the board’s actions “embarrassing” and pleaded with them to obey the law. “It will be difficult for our community to trust this school board while you consistently prevent the community from participating, ignore the law and conceal or misrepresent the district’s governing process and policies,” Greene said. Faye Miller, who lives on Brushy Fork Road, said she was “totally dismayed” at the board’s con-

duct. “You have taken an oath to serve the community, and you are to do it in a certain way – you have not been doing that,” she told the board. But Reed said merely looking at the agenda and list of topics isn’t enough to determine if something illegal took place. “You can’t make a judgment based on that piece of paper,” she said. “If the agenda said ‘loading dock,’ obviously you can’t go into executive session for that, but you could talk about how a janitor always leaves the loading dock door unlocked and how that needs to be secured.” Reed said the board actually disclosed more information than it needed to by listing all the topics on the agenda.

COLUMBIA TWP. — It wasn’t Jamey Evanchyk’s first ‘roadeo.” It wasn’t even the first time the service worker for Columbia Township took top prize in a snowplow-driving contest. But win Evanchyk did, when he finished in first place at a recent “Snow Plow Roadeo” during training in Sharonville sponsored by the Public Works Officials of Southwest Ohio. Evanchyk and some 60 other drivers from as far away as Dayton had three minutes to complete an obstacle course that included driving between barrels with just four inches to spare on either side, steering through a serpentine series of turns and getting close enough to poles by mailboxes to clip the poles but not the mailboxes. Then they ran the course in reverse. Evanchyk, a Milford resident who has worked for Columbia Township for nine years, also won the competition in 2006. He and other township service workers have won a number of awards in this and other snowplow-driving contests. A modest man, Evanchyk was hard-pressed to say what makes him a winner, other than he gets a lot of practice on the job and is a good driver. “Some people just have it,” Evanchyk finally said.

Milford picks up pace as hoops season starts

Boys basketball season officially tips off next week, but area teams have been in the gym getting ready all month. Here’s a look at some of the locals on the hardwood.

Clermont Northeastern

New head coach Darnell Parker inherits a Rocket team that went 4-18 last season, including a 3-6 mark in the Southern Buckeye Conference National Division good for fourth place in the six-team division. Five seniors – three of them starters – graduated from that

team. Returning starters include senior guard Jay Teaney, a league player of the year candidate who averaged 16.5 points per game last year. Also back is junior forward Darrian Bullock. Senior Zach Murray at forward and junior Patrick Kelley at center, along with junior guard Brandon Mullins, ought to round out the starting lineup. “One of the things I’m impressed with this team is their athleticism,” Parker said. “We should be able to push the tempo a little bit more than we have. “People hear that and think you just run up and down the floor and put up a ton of shots.

Milford High School’s Grant Riesenberg (15) battles for a loose ball during a Nov. 19 scrimmage against Princeton High School. MARK D. MOTZ/THE COMMUNITY PRESS

We’re going to still be smart and try to get good shots – we’re moving from a flex to a motion offense if we don’t

have anything in transition – but we’re definitely going to be pressuring the ball and looking for the easy shots in transi-

tion.” The Rockets open at home See HOOPS, Page A7


Correction » In the Nov. 20 edition, the Community Press misidentified Goshen High School girls basketball player Kayla Miller as Kayla Moore. Miller, a junior, is a returning starter at the point guard position.

Dec. 2 against Lockland. “It’s one of those games that can be a measuring stick for us,” Parker said. “They’ve got some athleticism that could give us trouble if we’re not ready. But we’ll be ready.I’m excited. The guys are excited. The community’s excited. We’re ready to get this thing tipped off.”


The Warriors went 1310 last season and finished second behind Amelia in the SBC American with a 6-4 record in league play. Head coach Scott Wake graduated four senior starters from that club and is using the preseason to find out who will fill the void. Senior guard Austin Smith is the lone returning starter. Juniors Nick Brown and Cody Schock have limited varsity experience after struggling through injuries as sophomores. Brown is a versatile player who can fit several positions. Schock is a 6-foot-6 forward. “After that, we don’t know yet,” Wake said. “We have to find some people to step up.” Look for Goshen to play a primarily halfcourt game and a lot of zone defense. “We don’t have a lot of scoring, so we’re going to have to grind it out and and really defend against people,” Wake said. “We want to shorten the game as much as we can.” Wake said Amelia remains the favorite in the league with New Richmond a strong contender. The Warriors face the Lions on the road in their first league game Dec. 6. Goshen opens the season with a pair of home games Nov. 29 against Ross and Dec. 2 against Little Miami.


The Rockets went 13-11 and finished second in the GCL Central behind Roger Bacon last season before falling to Taft in the sectional finals. Head coach Tim Monahan graduated five seniors from that club, including three starters. Two senior starters return in guard Danny Bryan and post player Brian Corpuz. Junior Greg Kent should land the starting point guard role, while a

NOVEMBER 27, 2013 • CJN-MMA • A7

trio of classmates in Sean Byrne, Kyle Morrisroe and Jacob Bradley compete for the remaining starting positions. “We’ll be better as we go along in the season,” Monahan said. “We could take some lumps early. We won’t even get our football guys back until (Nov. 24), so we haven’t been able to practice with the whole team. “Once we get those guys back, we’ll need to get them in basketball shape. We’re not real big, so we’re going to try to play a quicker game. I feel like once we have everybody in shape we can go pretty deep and keep coming at you.” Defensively, look for the Rockets to stick to their traditional man-toman principles with an occasional zone wrinkle available depending on the opponent. Monahan said Bacon should be the team to beat in the new GCL Coed, with Purcell Marian a possible dark-horse contender. McNick opens the season on the road Dec. 6 at St. Henry in Northern Kentucky before the home opener Dec. 7 against Madeira.


The Eagles graduated eight seniors from a team that went 15-8 last season, including an 8-4 record in the Eastern Cincinnati Conference good for a second-place tie with Turpin behind Walnut Hills. Head coach Joe Cambron has only one starter back – junior point guard Ryan Gallimore – but is optimistic about the coming season. “We’re so young that we’ve got three sophomores who are all going to play varsity minutes for us,” he said. “There are a lot of unknowns about us, but I love that. I love the chance to teach and see a team get better every day.” And while Gallimore is the lone returning starter, Cambron does have some

experienced players on the roster. Among them are 6-foot-8 senior post player Trevor Bullock and senior forward Austin Taylor. Shooting guard Brad Hall is one of the sophomores, while 6-foot-2 Will Hannah plays a forward. “Outside of Trevor we won’t be very big, but we’ll be a very aggressive team,” Cambron said. “We will play much faster than we have in years past to make up for the size.” Cambron tabbed Walnut Hills as the team to beat in the ECC again this season, with his team and several others pushing those other Eagles for the top spot. Milford opens Nov. 30 on the road at Sycamore before coming home to face Colerain Dec. 3 and jumping into league play Dec. 6 at home against Turpin.


The Crusaders lived up to their typical standards last season by winning the Greater Catholic LeagueSouth at 10-0 and finishing 23-3 after a tough loss at the University of Dayton Arena last March to Springboro in the tournament. Carl Kremer took another GCL-South Coach of the Year award and could be in line for another as first-teamer Grant Benzinger returns for his senior season. The Wright State commit will be joined by senior Trey Hawkins and junior Nate Fowler, who made GCL-South second team last winter. Benzinger was third in the league in scoring last season at 12.9 points per game; Hawkins was the league assist leader at 4.8 per game; and the 6-foot-9 Fowler was second in the league in shooting percentage and rebounding. Seniors Jack Anton and Adam Gigax at 6-foot-8 and 6-foot-6 will provide added length on the Crusader frontcourt. Anton has committed to Elon

College. Junior Fowler has a variety of offers including some from the SEC and Big 10. “He’s really playing well,” Kremer said of Fowler. “He’s a high-character kid. I think schools are waiting to see how his athleticism develops. Big guys really develop late.” Kremer also has some “new names” to varsity that should contribute in former junior varsity point guard Kevin Kerley. From the football team, Gus Ragland and Noah Able will see minutes once they hang up the pads for the year. Moeller recently tested their skills against a number of good teams in Canton. They also will participate in a holiday tournament once again by attending the Beach Ball Classic in Myrtle Beach, S.C., Dec. 27-31. “If we can get by the best team out of Toronto, then we likely play this team out of Florida that has a Duke commit,” Kremer said. “They have another kid who won the ‘dunk of the year’ this summer and it went viral on ESPN. I think we’ll compete. We have the kind of size that we can play with anybody.” Even outside of the preseason and holiday trips, Moeller’s schedule is frightening. “It’s the best schedule we’ve ever had,” Kremer said. “We’ve got schools like Centerville and Taft and Aiken. We think it’s going to help us through the tournament.” The Crusaders open at Chaminade-Julienne Nov. 30. The home opener features Covington Catholic Dec. 6.

Best way to clean up your yard this fall Fall clean-up is in full swing and many people like to mulch their leaves to allow them to become organic matter to improve the soil. However, if you had a disease or fungus on your trees this year you could be creating an environment for fungus to survive the winter, which is a cause for concern. It will take several years of maintenance to correct, otherwise, the tree will be fine, just showing foliage with spots. Most of the tree leaf concerns phoned into our office were leaf spot issues, which is called septoria. The more common name is frog eye or tar leaf spot. According to the University of Illinois fact sheet, “Fungal Leaf Spot Diseases of Shade

and Ornamental Trees in the Midwest,” protective control measures are not generally warranted for most leaf spots. Gigi Although Neal COMMUNITY PRESS the fallen leaves are GUEST COLUMNIST often collected and then composted, burned or hauled away with the trash, there is little evidence to show that these practices will significantly reduce infection the following spring and summer. Here are tips to reduce leaf spot issues in your trees: 1. In early spring, properly fertilize trees that have been severely defoliated in previous

years. 2. Prune trees regularly to thin out dense crowns. Remove weak, diseased, insect-infested or dead wood, and crossing or rubbing branches. Proper pruning will promote air movement, speed drying of the leaves and help to stimulate vigorous growth. 3. In most years, the weather is not favorable for severe disease development and, in most cases, leaf spot diseases are not especially harmful. Therefore, to control most leaf spot diseases, protective fungicidal sprays are not recommended unless the health of the tree is in danger. However, there are a few common leaf spot diseases that can be controlled by using fungicidal sprays. Spraying fungi-

cides after the disease appears will reduce secondary infections but will not eliminate infections that have already occurred. Additional sprays may be necessary following prolonged rainy periods. The container label will tell you whether a fungicide can be used on a specific tree. When applying any diseasecontrol chemical, carefully follow all directions and precautions as printed on the container label. Too much fungicide can injure trees, especially under certain weather conditions. 4. Several species of shade and ornamental trees are resistant to some leaf spot diseases. The following list names species that are resistant to various diseases: buckeye and horse

chestnut to leaf blotch; crabapple to scab; willow and poplar to one or more rusts; elm to black spot or anthracnose; red, shingle, and bur oaks to anthracnose; London plane tree to anthracnose; and hawthorn to Entomosporium leaf spot or blight. Here are upcoming dates to remember: Nutrient Management, Cover Crops and 4R’s Workshop to help producers improve soil quality and increase their bottom line, Dec. 11, 9 a.m. to noon.

“I feel sorry for progressives, having carried their experiment arrogantly, making promises. Balance is the key, voters.”

“Have cancer (very scary word) or any other life altering disease? It's covered now. It is a blessing to be able to have adult children age 26 or under to be included in their parents' plan. Too many spout criticism without fully knowing all of the facts, just their opinions and others' rumors. “Let time correct the discrepancies, let the health care take effect, let it work into the next year, and then see where the majority of Americans stand.”

Gigi Neal is the OSU Extension Educator, Agriculture and Natural Resources, Clermont County.

CH@TROOM Last week’s question Do you think President Obama will be able to keep his promise that Americans will be able to keep canceled health insurance policies for a year as companies and consumers adjust to the new demands of the health care law? Why or why not?

“Can we all stop and take a breath right now? There has been so much bashing of the president that I don’t want to hear it any more. “I recognize that the new system is not working. Many times in my life I have experienced a computer program needing time to actually work. I also recognize that many people are waiting to enroll in health care and that many people cannot afford to lose the health care they currently enjoy. I do believe this situation will improve, the president’s promise will be kept and we will all get what we need. Cooler heads must prevail.” E.E.C.

“No he won’t be able to keep that promise! He never intended to keep it! It was a total lie and he knew it. “The purpose of Obamacare is a mass redistribution of wealth. It has nothing to do with health care reform. It has everything to do with government control and socialist policy. “Sadly, it must be conceded that the president of the United States of America is an arrogant, narcissistic, bold-faced liar.” R.W.J.

“‘Keep his promise???’ This lying cypher is incapable of truth!!!” J.G.

NEXT QUESTION The Ohio House has passed a bill which would redefine selfdefense and circumstances where the use of force trumps the duty to retreat to public settings, such as stores and streets. Under current law, residents need not retreat before using force if they are lawfully in their homes, vehicles or the vehicle of an immediate family member. Is this good legislation? Why or why not? Every week we ask readers a question they can reply to via e-mail. Send your answers to with Chatroom in the subject line.

“I heard Speaker Boehner say the other day that “America has the best health-care delivery system in the world.” If he is that badly out of touch with reality he shouldn’t be allowed to win another election. My personal wealth was wiped out by this system. I was forced to pay endlessly rising premiums (which ended at $20,000 per year, when I could no longer afford them) and massive deductibles on top of that. “I have liens on my house from debt collectors who were too lazy to try to contact my insurance company to find out why they weren’t getting paid and who wouldn’t tell me what the charges were for so I could tackle the insurance company on my own. “I have never been sick enough to be hospitalized and I have paid full rates for the minor problems I have due to the deductibles. And because I wasn’t able to qualify for a group plan the hospitals and doctors charged me much more

than other people pay for the same treatment. The reason is that I have one child with a spontaneous mutation genetic disease and two other family members who had 'pre-existing conditions' during the time I was insured. My own family thinks I could have “shopped around” for insurance, but they never actually tried to do it. “The best I could do was to get a policy like the one I already had, which wouldn’t cover my family for a year during which I would have had to pay double premiums to make sure we didn’t have a crisis that wasn’t covered by the old policy. “How many people who vote for Republicans can afford $40,000 per year for medical insurance? “The Affordable Care Act takes care of most of the issues I face, but it’s too late. I still have to go to court to get the liens lifted because judges imposed them on the word of the insurance companies without giving me a chance to present the facts. And I can’t be sure I will get rid of them all. “No one deserves our support if they have criticism, but aren’t willing to propose solutions. And these problems don’t just affect a handful of unfortunate citizens. “The insurance companies are out of control and the hospital corporations are out of control. Doctors are part of the problem, because they don’t see earning 10 times as much as their patients to be a problem. “And all of the Republicans deserve to be shaken out of the stupor they have fallen into with their false numbers on welfare and uninsured.” N.F.

“Yes, despite all the anti-federal government propaganda and (conscious and unconscious) racism to the contrary, I do believe President Obama will be able to keep this promise for the year-long coverage extension. He wants to help the poor and uninsured get affordable healthcare. After all this time, that should not be so difficult to understand." TRog

“The insurance industry will figure it out. They have a winwin situation no matter what with all that cash available and they'll get plenty of ours.


“President Obama's first promise was 'Any Americans who want to keep their current plans will keep them - period!' It is implied by the Journal's question that Obama has failed to keep that promise. Now you are asking, basically, will Obama be able to keep his new promise that any Americans who want to keep their current plans will keep them until next year – if the insurance company allows it. Don't make me laugh.” R.V.

“First, let's be clear, that was NOT a promise. It was just another one of his campaign lies. He knew from the start that most Americans could not keep their current plans since they could not possibly conform to Obamacare (eg. seniors with maternity coverage?). “Secondly, this scheme depends on overcharging the currently insured and young who will not participate. Thirdly, when the employer mandate kicks-in 70 percent of those who get insurance through work will be canceled. Medicaide signups are growing rapidly through the exchanges. This is all by design on the way to Obama's goal of a single payer socialized medicine!!” D.J.H.

“I don't think Obama will ever keep his promises on anything, but then I think of another president who told us to read his lips. “Another thing, who is saying that the insurance companies will automatically take these canceled people back. My advice is to scrap the whole plan, get these people their coverage back and go from there. This plan is horrible." Dave D.

“I truly believe that President Obama cares deeply for all Americans, is doing what he can to alleviate the canceled health care policies and to help the American people get through this. No matter what your opinion is of the Affordable Care Act it is doing good, insuring those who could not get coverage due to pre-existing conditions.

“No, because Obama is a pathological liar.” J.J.

“This now depends on the insurance companies themselves. Under the ACA all plans must provide a certain level of coverage. This was intended to eliminate the threat of financial ruin through healthcare costs in the event of catastrophic illness. Isn’t that what we expect from insurance? “Why didn’t the insurance companies simply upgrade policies to comply? In some cases these companies are using the law as an excuse to eliminate less profitable plans and mislead panicked customers into buying their more expensive replacement plans. “In most cases cancellation is due to the fact that these 'junk plans' are recipes for disaster if the holder has the audacity to get sick. They may not offer hospitalization or prescription coverage. Insurance companies are now required to disclose this. Many may not want to admit how inadequate their products really were. “If you hold one of these noncompliant plans do you really want to keep it? This could be a lifesaving change. But a promise is a promise, right?” K.M.

“I do not think that this new promise is any more genuine than the previous ones. It took the insurance companies three and a half years to prepare for meeting the guidelines that Kathleen Sebelius added in after the ACA had been passed by the Democratic-controlled House and Senate and had been signed into law, just one of many regulations added in later.”

Members of the boys soccer team walk through a cheer tunnel during a pep rally in their honor at The Summit Country Day School in Hyde Park Nov. 8.LEIGH TAYLOR/THE COMMUNITY PRESS


COLUMBUS (Ohio) — - Take two. Summit Country Day won its second consecutive Division III state soccer championship Nov. 9, beating Mansfield Christian 2-1 at Columbus Crew Stadium for the title. “It’s just as sweet,” said Silver Knights head coach Barnard Baker of the second state victory. “Because this one was so unexpected and because it’s my last game, this one is very, very special to me.” Unexpected in that Summit graduated so many players from its 2012 title team, leaving the Silver Knights with talented - albeit largely varsity-untested - players to begin the season. So fitting, perhaps, that a pair of sophomores did the scoring honors in the state final; Charlie Maciejewski netted one in the first half and Brendan Jones scored in the second. Mansfield Christian got its goal in the final two minutes off a corner kick Baker still wasn’t sure about more than an hour after the game. “I’m going to have to see the tape,” he said. “There was some strange call that got them a corner and I don’t know exactly how it happened. But we were able to survive that.” More than survive. Summit took advantage of Crew Stadium’s immense 77-yard width and Mansfield’s three-man back row. “We played everything wide and attacked the corners,” Baker said. “We knew they had played on a smaller field and

had never been there before, so we tried to take advantage of that. “You think of playing on grass and it might slow you down, but it’s so, so super-fast. But with that width, everything is in play. We said, ‘Let’s keep attacking the corners,’ and eventually they had to start protecting them and that left some gaps for us.” Summit reached the championship game by beating Worthington Christian 2-0 in the state semifinals Nov. 6. “It’s so big,” said junior forward Austin Smythe. “Last year we were full of seniors and they

said we couldn’t get back. We really wanted this to show them we could.” Baker may have sided with the recent graduates at the start of the season, but he’s more than a believer now. “The word for us all season was survival, not repeat,” he said. “After losing as many players as we did and as tough a schedule as we had to play, we thought we’d have five or six losses and have to battle. “We did battle and we did survive, and here we are again.” Midway through the first half Maciejewski found Smythe streaking down the right side for the first goal. “I got a chance and I got a step on the the defense,” said Smythe, a Mariemont resident. “I just got a foot on it and put it in the back of the net The second goal came at the 15:04 mark of the second half when senior Matt Meister subbed in for a cramping Smythe on the second of two consecutive corner kicks. Meister - a Hyde Park resident - found himself open from 15 yards out on a deflection. “I faked it, crossed it over to my right foot and took the shot,” he said. “I was surprised I had room to move the ball like I did, let alone take the shot. “It was unbelievable to come in off the bench and score a goal late in the game, this late in the season, my senior year. We did lose a lot of seniors from last year, but I think the seniors this year really stepped up. We really want this. “We want this because it’s so fun, just the journey of making it to state.”

ADDITIONAL HONORS Summit Country Day not only hoisted the team trophy for the state title, but also some individual hardware. Just hours before the state finals, the Ohio Scholastic Soccer Coaches Association named Silver Knights senior Christian Hay Ohio Division III player of the year. “Christian was a beast tonight,” said head coach Barnard Baker. “Of course, he was a beast every night. He completely deserves that award. There is nobody better, nobody who meant more to their team.” Classmate Bryce Hueber was Ohio Division III girls player of the year for Summit. Baker - who announced his retirement as head coach earlier this season - picked up OSSCA private school coach of the year honors.

Gluten-free recipes fill new ‘Holy Chow’ cookbook I got some unexpected exercise today. The wind was blowing so hard when I hung up the clothes that it literally blew most of them off the line right after I put the clothespins on the last of the socks. Now I didn’t mind chasing the dish towels across the field, but it was a little embarrassing to see my “unmentionables” flying freely toward the road. My girlfriend called me later and said she was driving by when all this happened. “Made me chuckle,” she said. I guess it’s what we call a cloud with a silver lining.

Giovanna’s gluten-free meatballs and spaghetti You know her as Joanne Trimpe, author of two Holy Chow cookbooks, the first of which is “Holy Chow” and the second, new one is “Holy Chow Gluten Free.” You may recognize her as a television personality and personal chef to Archbishop Dennis Schnurr. I know her as Giovanna, and we have become friends and colleagues. Giovanna decided to write another cookbook with glutenfree recipes because Archbishop Schnurr is gluten intolerant, yet enjoys good food. “I was nervous at first. I didn’t know much about gluten intolerance so I knew I needed to learn how to cook gluten free, but with all the


flavor of my original recipes,” she said. Well, Giovanna has nailed it. Her book has Rita really Heikenfeld good, doaRITA’S KITCHEN ble glutenfree recipes, from appetizers like crab cakes that start your meal with flair to dinners that are entertainment worthy. Her eggplant Parmesan is unbelievably good. There’s a special section from friends and family. I contributed recipes for the dessert section. Every recipe has a photo along with a Bible quote relating to it, so you are feeding both body and soul. I chose Giovanna’s meatball and spaghetti recipe since that’s a universal favorite and a nice change from all the turkey we eat this time of year. Check out her website for information to purchase the book. Also available at Joseph-Beth Booksellers in Rookwood and sells for $16.95. Prepare meatballs 11⁄2 pounds of ground chuck 1 teaspoon kosher salt 1 ⁄2 teaspoon ground pepper 1 egg white 11⁄2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley or 1 teaspoon dry 1 ⁄2 cup soy milk or any type lactose-free milk 11⁄2 cups bread crumbs

Now, this is where it is important to use glu-

ten-free bread crumbs. You can buy frozen gluten-free bread and, using your food processor, make 11⁄2 cups. Work the meatball mixture with your hands. Keep hands wet while rolling meat into about two-inch meatballs. Place meatballs on a large plate while you finish. This should yield about 18-20 meatballs. Prepare simple tomato sauce Put 1⁄4 cup extra virgin olive oil in large sauce pan on medium heat. Stir in 1⁄2 cup chopped onions

and cook for 3 minutes. Add 3 cloves minced garlic and cook for only 2 or 3 minutes and be careful not to burn garlic. Add 2 teaspoons Kosher salt and 1 teaspoon pepper and simmer for another 2 or 3 minutes. Then add two 32 oz. cans whole tomatoes, crushed with your hands (or fresh tomatoes that are equal to the same amount). Cook for 5 minutes. Add 1 teaspoon dry basil or about 8-10 fresh basil leaves. Now add two 15 oz. cans tomato sauce and two 6

oz. cans tomato paste. Rinse out cans to get the most of the sauce. Measure out two cups of the juice/sauce water and add that to sauce. Simmer on low for 20 to 30 minutes for marinara sauce only, or 45 minutes to an hour if you are adding uncooked meatballs.

Instant vanilla sauce for bread pudding, cake, etc. OK, trust me on this one. Instead of making vanilla sauce with eggs,

etc. from scratch, just melt good quality vanilla ice cream slowly until it’s slightly warm. What you’ll wind up with is a not-too-thick sauce that is delicious on bread pudding or drizzled into hot chocolate. Rita Nader Heikenfeld is an herbalist, educator and author.

Howdy Folks, Last week was a busy one for Ruth Ann and me. On Wednesday evening we held a Lions Club Zone meeting here at Bethel. I will explain about the Lions Zone meeting, there are five Lions Clubs in zone five of District 13-H. We are to have three zone meetings per year. Ruth Ann and I are the zone chairmen for zone five. The District Governor is Clark VaanScyoc. He will be this for one year along with his lovely wife, Lion Miriam. The reason for the zone meetings is that it lets everyone hear how each club works to help support their community. For instance eye research, buying eye glasses for students and seniors etc. The Bethel Lions Club adopted a family to furnish a Thanksgiving meal and have adopted two seniors through the Clermont Senior Services for Christmas gifts. The club as you know was very helpful in the tornado of Moscow, Tate Township and some of Brown County. The club have four pancake breakfasts each year. The next pancake breakfast will be 7:30 till 10:30 a.m., Dec. 21 at the Betel-Tate High School. The cost is $5 and $3 for 12 years and under. The Bethel Club is also involved with the school in many ways. Making donations to Colorado for the flood relief and most recent to Illinois for the

tornado relief through the Lions International. Wednesday morning Past District George Governor Rooks Frank OLE FISHERMAN Hacker after eating breakfast passed away. This was a shock to the Lions Clubs. He and his wife Judy were planning to come to the Zone meeting that evening here at Bethel. The Lions Clubs are collecting used eye glasses and they are sent to other countries where they are needed for people that don’t have the money to buy them, so give your old glasses to any Lion Club member. Ruth Ann and I attended another funeral of a young lady that has judged the crafts at the Grange. Her mother Violet is a member of the Monroe Grange. This young lady, Linda Faye was a very crafty person making quilts and other items then giving some away to other folks. She was a very charitable person. On the memory card was this reading; Mother Dear, beautiful things in this life are manifold, tis true we count the stars by thousands the birds, flowers too. The sunsets and dawning rare beauties far and near, but all the wide world over there is just one Mother dear.

Thursday Ruth Ann and I had our friends Mort and Barb here for the noon meal. Mort has been sick but is getting better. They sure enjoyed the meal. We are busy in the workshop when we have the time making jewelry boxes, wood bowls, bird feeders and birdhouses for next spring. We have a craft show Nov. 23 at Goshen Lions Club and will have another show at Mowrystown School from 9 a.m. till 3 p.m. on Dec. 7 They also have a Christmas parade with Santa Claus. They have had the parade for many years and a good attendance. When we had the old 1936 Case tractor we took it and got in the parade. I enjoyed the parade though it was cold. Speaking about Santa Claus, The Milford Garden Center will have their train display and Santa on weekends starting soon. Sunday the Owensville Historical Society held their meeting with a special speaker for Veterans Day. Howard Daugherty and wife it was something the way the soldiers lived and worked, everybody enjoyed his talk. 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, the last five as manager of East Fork Park.
