Trustees approve JEDD By Lisa J. Mauch

UNION TWP. — Trustees approved a Joint Economic Development Zones & District contract Jan. 12, which could potentially earn the township $140,000 annually. The JEDD would be with the city of Milford for two properties, Jungle Jim’s and a Hillandale retirement community, said Administrator Ken Geis in a presentation to the board. Jungle Jim’s is in the former Eastgate Bigg’s location and the Hillandale site is between the police station and Veterans Memorial Park on Glen Este-Withamsville Road. “We continue to see the incredible excitement about the opening of Jungle Jim’s,” said Geis.

He also said with a lack of retirement facilities in the township, Hillandale would fill this need. “Now we have the opportunity for people from birth through their senior lives to stay in Union Township and be a part of the community,” said Geis Geis. He said between 500 and 800 employees are anticipated at these businesses and Milford would use its municipal authority to collect the 1 percent earnings tax on wages. The township would receive 85 percent of the net proceeds from this JEDD, an estimated revenue of around $140,000 annually said Geis.

The JEDD would be in effect for an initial period of 30 years with renewals he said. “This is one of the most lucrative JEDDs anywhere in the state,” said Geis. “This is nothing more than a continuation of what we’re doing at Ivy Pointe. It will allow us to reinvest in our community.” Ivy Pointe Commerce Park is Union Township’s first JEDD, also with Milford. Trustee Tim Donnellon recused himself from the JEDD discussion and abstained from voting since his home is near one of the JEDD sites. “(This) is just one of the tools the state gives us to bring economic land development,” said Trustee Matt Beamer. Trustee Robert McGee said, “It’s a win-win situation for Union Township.”

Livesavers help fire department Behind the scenes at the fire station is a group called Life Savers that raises money for items ranging from soda to equipment for firefighters. “To my knowledge it dates back to at least the ’70s, maybe the ’60s, and it has always been a group that was made up of department members and people who wanted to help out with fundraisers,” said Chief Mark Baird.

Batavia looks to take easement By Lisa J. Mauch

BATAVIA — Council is having the Riverside Coffee Mill property appraised and surveyed to take an easement for the village’s Broadway lift station. “We need assured access to that station,” said village Administrator Dennis Nichols. “The county is concerned we don't have a legal guarantee of access.” As of Jan. 9, the Clermont County Water and Sewer District is operating the village’s water and sewer utilities under a threeyear contract. The lift station is a pump that moves sanitary sewage flows to the treatment plant, said Nichols.

The village has been getting to the lift station for several years by crossing the parking lot of the Riverside Coffee Mill. He said the village has never formally sought or obtained an agreement to come onto the land. “They have never asked permission, no,” said property owner Michael Kinner. “They’ve trespassed on our property for five years.” The village and Kinner have negotiated for an easement, but have been unable to reach an agreement, said Nichols. Kinner said he originally offered the village a 20-foot easement if they would fix the drainage problem coming from the highway and causing water to

leak into his basement. He said the village declined his offer. Having the property appraised and surveyed are the necessary steps before asking the Clermont County Court of Common Pleas to take the easement and assign a price, said Nichols. An easement would give the village the right to use a defined path to the lift station, said Nichols. He said it wouldn’t take the property away from its owners, but limits its use by them. “They’re going to have to do something that will guarantee they will maintain the easement,” said Kinner. “Because I’m not mainitaining it at my expense.”

Park/ride upgrades planned By Lisa J. Mauch

UNION TWP. — Metro riders will soon see some improvements at the park and ride near the Union Township Civic Center, 4350 Aicholtz Road. Cory Wright, assistant township administrator, said township officials are partnering with the Clermont Transportation Connection to upgrade the area. He said improvements include adding security enhancements and replacing the asphalt with concrete where the bus stops. “It gets a lot of use; it gets a lot of traffic,” Wright said. “Concrete is the gold standard for bus pads.” Ben Chapelle, director of CTC, said his organization receives a grant every year to make enhancements and security improvements. “We had done all the projects we felt were appropriate on our own park and rides and since we had extra money we wanted to improve another park and ride in the county,” he said. Chapelle estimated the cost at $48,000. He said the township will pay 20 percent of the cost and CTC will cover the rest. He said besides normal wear and tear at the bus stop, security concerns were another reason for the improvements. “They’ve had a problem of thefts of catalytic converters and about half of the project is the installation of a big pole and security camera tied to the Union Township Police Department so they can monitor the lot,” said Chapelle. The Union Township Park & Ride is a stop on the Metro Route 82X, which takes passengers to and from downtown Cincinnati. “We’ll coordinate with Metro,” said Wright. “We anticipate that service will continue through the construction process. A lot of the work will be underground. The biggest disturbance you’ll see is the excavation of asphalt and replacement with concrete. We hope to start soon.”

AMELIA — The village council’s newest member was sworn into office Jan. 3. Susan Elliott, who was elected Nov. 8, repeated the oath of office read by Solicitor Julia Carney. Elliott placed her hand on a Bible held by her sister, Christina Nadeau.

Newly-elected Mayor Todd Hart and council member Renee Gerber were sworn in previously. Gerber, who was appointed to council in 2009 to fill a vacancy, was elected to a full four-year term. The new council selected council member Bob Pollitt to serve as vice mayor. Council members also approved a new lineup of committees proposed by Hart.

Hart said each committee would include a council member as chair, a second council member and a village resident representative. The committees will cover planning and zoning, finance, cemetery, safety, streets and utilities. Hart appointed Derrick Campbell as chair and Pollitt as the second council member of the planning and zoning committee. “It’s very important to

get that committee moving,” Hart said. He still has to appoint a resident member for the committee. The mayor said members of the other committees would be named at the next council meeting, set for 7 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 17, in the municipal building, 44 W. Main St. Hart also appointed Gerber to a one-year term as the council liaison on the village’s recreation commission. The council is one member short because Hart resigned his council seat when he took over as mayor. The present members of council will select the new member. Letters of interest for the open council seat were due Dec. 31. Hart proposed selecting a committee of council members to interview the candidates who submitted letters of interest. Gerber said based on the five letters of interest received, she was prepared to vote to fill the position immediately. “It’s wasting valuable time to form a committee,” she said. However, the council voted 4-1 to allow Hart to form an interview committee. Hart named council members Pollitt, Campbell and Chuck Thacker to the committee.

CLERMONT CO. — The county has a new probation program thanks to a $187,796 grant received through the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction. The program is Thinking For a Change or T4C and the goal is to keep people from violating probation. Julie Frey, director of the common pleas court

probation department, said this program isn't designed for people who committed crimes like rape or felonious assault, but rather those convicted of non-parental support, theft and drug-related charges. Frey said the program will target changing offenders' behavior so they don't get into trouble again. “If you put them in prisons, that keeps them off the streets for a little

while,” said Frey, “but if you don't change their behavior, they're likely to reoffend and nobody's protected that way.” She said the grant required department personnel to find a program with a proven effectiveness in reducing repeat offenses. The program will be audited every year to make sure goals are met. Shannon Disbennett, common pleas court court administrator, said two more probation officers

will be hired to work the program. One new employee will be responsible for creating custom plans to make sure those on probation are going to treament and staying employed. “It's not just there to reduce the amount of prison commitment, but to focus on reducing recidivism in the long term,” said Disbennett. “The goal is to help people get back into the community and be productive citizens.”

Life Savers offer helping hand to New Richmond Fire Dept. By Lisa J. Mauch

NEW RICHMOND — Behind the scenes at the fire station is a group called Life Savers that raises money for items ranging from soda to equipment for firefighters. “To my knowledge it dates back to at least the ’70s, maybe the ’60s, and it has always been a group that was made up of department members and people who wanted to help out with fundraisers,” said Chief Mark Baird. The department has an auxiliary group, too, but its main function is to support the firefighters and EMTs by delivering food and drinks to fire scenes and

other department events. And while the auxiliary raises some money, Baird said it’s not to the extent the Life Savers does. The money Life Savers raises is used for items needed at the station, like condiments, bottled drinks and shoe polish, as well as to pay for Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners for on-duty staff. “It makes life around the station a little better for employees and volunteers,” said Baird. The chief said the Life Savers also helps buy equipment and donates to local groups like the food pantry. “Between the Life Savers and firefighters auxiliary, we’ve donated about

$18,000 back to the department and back to community organizations,” said Baird. Life Saver volunteers have worked a booth and sold drinks at various events over the years, including River Days and the Fourth of July celebration. Hamersville resident Kenny West volunteered at the Life Savers booth during the July 4 event. “It’s good to see a small community get together and do things for themselves,” said West. “I know funding is hard to come by and a small community has two choices, to do without … or take the bull by the horns. I think that’s what this group does. It makes

you feel good to help with something like that.” There also is an honor system for paying for drinks taken out of the station refrigerator, said Baird. “That’s a big part of our fundraising right there,” he said. Mayor Ramona Carr said, “I think it is wonderful that they care enough to have fundraisers to benefit the department and community. It saves tax dollar spending and helps the department to get much needed equipment and items.” Anyone interested in being a part of the Life Savers group can call Chief Mark Baird at 5532117.

TQL is the ‘Best Place to Work’ By Chuck Gibson

UNION TWP. — Total Quality Logistics recently was named winner of a “Best Places to Work” award for employers of 1,000 or more. The award was announced by the Cincinnati Business Courier in November. Over 100 Cincinnati-area public, private and non-profit organizations were included in the competition. The Courier teamed with market research firm Quantum Workplace to conduct the competition. Quantum has performed workplace surveys for thousands of companies in 40 U.S. cities. The award is based on feedback from employees of each of the competing companies. “What makes us excited about this kind of award is that voting is based on feedback from them,” said Kerry Byrne, executive vice president at TQL. “We can’t ask for a better barometer of progress than that. We’re very honored.” Progress has been fast for the 14-year-old company with 11 offices in eight states, including its headquarters in Union Township. With 10 satellite loca-

tions in Illinois, Colorado, South and North Carolina, Florida, Indiana and Kentucky, TQL already employs more than 1,600 people. By expanding locations and workforce growth, the company plans to create 1,000 new job opportunities over the next three years. “We invest in people and technology,” Byrne said. “During the course of our growth from two to more than 1,600 employees we have paid particular attention to what matters to our people.” What matters to TQL employees is working in a competitive and rewarding team environment. They tend to be goal-oriented, young and energetic people from Generation Y. The company provides the opportunity for employees to work in teams to achieve goals and compete for rewards together. Team building exercises make them more than just coworkers, they become friends. Like so many companies experiencing success today, TQL recognizes the benefit of a healthy and fit workforce. Employees tend to be much more health and fitness conscious. The company has an on-site cafeteria and 24/7 fitness facility.

TQL, which has its headquarters building in Union Township, has been named the winner of a "Best Places to Work" award. THANKS TO KACEY KING, The TQL fitness facility is free to all employees and includes an outdoor milelong track. The cafeteria focuses on providing foods and information which encourage healthy eating habits. Fresh fruit, a salad bar and highly visible posted calorie count information helps employees keep eating healthy in their fastpaced work environment. Simple things go a long

way toward promoting a fit, healthy and happy workplace at TQL. Hand sanitizers are readily available throughout the open work spaces to limit unnecessary spread of germs. The effort to promote health and fitness even reaches into the bathroom stalls where monthly wellness tips can be found in door pockets. Tips on how to manage the stress of the hectic holiday season fill those door pockets during the month of December. In November flu shots were made available for everyone at no cost to the employee. During a recent visit to TQL, Ohio Gov. John Kasich met with company leaders, and talked one-on-one with employees during a walking tour of the facility. As a testament to the company’s growth, the

trucking freight broker announced Dec. 15 it reached $1billion in sales for 2011. It is the first time the company has attained the milestone in a single calendar year. That means TQL has tripled its sales while the freight industry remained flat over the last five years. The company currently ranks as third largest on the nation’s list of freight brokerage companies. First and second largest have been in business for 103 and 48 years respectively. “We look forward to additional growth in 2012 as more shippers and carriers become aware of our industry-leading service and our capacity to reliably handle a wide variety of load types,” said Byrne. While TQL added 585 new jobs in 2011, the hiring process is already under-

way for 575 new positions locally as part of the 1,000 new opportunities the company expects over the next three years nationwide. Facilities where some of those new opportunities will open up have not even been built yet. Building and construction is under way on a site in Clermont County as part of the nationwide growth of TQL. The TQL employees connect consumer product and industrial goods shippers with truck operators who transport their freight to market destinations. The 1,600-member workforce identifies the right trucks for particular freight loads, negotiates rates and ensures on-time delivery. More about Total Quality Logistics at:

Quit smoking plan offers incentives Matt Schlagheck

The Ohio State University Extension Service in Clermont County is providing free assistance for adults who want to quit smoking in exchange for participating in a case study. OSU’s College of Public Health is partnering with OSU Extension in Clermont County to provide telephone support and eight weeks of nicotine patches for 60 adult smokers. The program is called the “OSU Quit Smoking Project.” Debi Parm, a lay health adviser, said the local project is aimed at Appalachian county smokers who are willing to be “open” and talk through their struggles with an “adviser” from the Ohio Tobacco Quit Line. “What each participant does is quit within 30 days and they receive information about quitting smoking,” said Parm. “We then give them free consultations from the Ohio Quit line and hope they stay

committed.” Parm said the purpose of the study is to find out how effective telephone support and patches are effective for “every day” smokers. “The participants need to be of age to smoke, have no major health issues and are daily smokers,” Parm said Clermont County was one of six counties chosen in Ohio’s Appalachian region. The other counties include Carrol, Lawrence, Coshocton, Washington and Columbiana. Parm said that Clermont County was chosen in part because of the high rate of adult smokers. According to the 2008 Ohio Family Health Survey, 29.6 percent of adults in Clermont County smoke. The counties smoking rate is 9.5 percent higher then the average adult smoking rate in Ohio in 2008. Parm said the study is just beginning and is need of 30 men and 30 women to participate. To participate, smokers need to be: A resident of

Clermont County, be 18 years or older, have no recent health issues, be a daily smoker, not be pregnant, willing to try to quit within 30 days. The study, funded by the National Cancer Institute, has incentives such as $20 given to each participant who shows up for datagathering appointments, said Parm. The study results will be complete and available to the public by 2014, she said. Margaret Jenkins, extension educator at OSUExtension Clermont County, said the opportunity to recieve free assistance is “a great opportunity” to those who are trying to quit smoking, but haven’t had the money in the past to quit with assistance. For more information about the program or to sign up, contact Debi Parm at 513-635-8595, or Margaret Jenkins, extension educator,

Darren Freimuth, 36, of Cincinnati was a passenger in a van traveling east on Ohio 32 about 12:30 a.m. and going through the intersection at Bauer Road, said Trooper Sgt. C.C. Wright. Freimuth told the driver to pull over, but before the driver could, Freimuth opened the door, Wright said. “I don’t know if he jumped or what his intentions were,” said Wright. “There was alcohol involved. He had been drinking.” Freimuth was transported to Mercy Health Hospital Clermont and then airlifted to University Hospital. He was last known to be in critical condition, said Wright. There were two other men and a woman in the

car, Wright said, and the driver had not been drinking. The incident is remains under investigation.

West Clermont schools awarded grant for iPads Matt Schlagheck

West Clermont seventhgraders will be receiving iPads purchased with a $20,000 grant from Duke Energy. Duke Energy District Manager Warren Walker and Sales Representative Todd Frank spoke on behalf of the company Jan. 9 about the donation to the West Clermont Local School District Board of Education and several students in the audience. “Duke energy feels that STEP is very important – science, technology, engineering and math,” said Walker. “And what I am seeing in (these students) is our future workforce.”

Walker said he hopes the iPads furnished by the grant will give students a chance to learn the “tools of the future.” “What (Duke Energy) wanted to do was help sponsor education,” Walker said. “These tools, the iPads, we don’t know all the benefits of all these yet but it’s up to you (students) to show us adults how to use them.” Assistant Superintendent Mary Ellen Steele-Pierce said the district first applied for the grant in October. After the district was notified about receiving the grant, the administration researched the district’s reading and math data to see which grade had the greatest need for the technology, SteelePierce said.

Seventh graders were chosen as the group to receive the iPads. The iPads will be primarily used to help teach students the process of researching with “advanced technology,” she said. Board president Doug Young said the district staff and administrators appreciated the donation, and that it would not have been possible if it weren’t for the efforts of Steele-Pierce and her fellow co-workers. “The grant would not be possible without (Duke Energy’s) generosity, but I would be reminiscent if not mentioning that the grant application was filled out in a span of only six hours by Steele-Pierce,” said Young.

COSI visits Merwin Elementary

Matt Schlagheck

Students at Merwin Elementary used their hands to learn about meteorology during COSI’s third annual visit Jan. 11 and 12. COSI educators lead an assembly and various hands-on experiments for first- through fifth-grade students, as part of the “COSI On Wheels” program. Christi Mallasch, COSI’s outreach educator, explained a broad range of meteorology topics ranging from cloud forma-

tion, air pressure, lightning and natural disasters. The experiments ranged from air pressure crushing an oil barrel, to COSI educators adding liquid nitrogen to water and creating a “cloud” of smoke. Mallasch said the topics were interesting, but it wouldn’t have been as captivating without hands-on opportunities. “This program instills an excitement in science,” said Mallasch. “Volunteer experience and hands-on time with science lets students know that science isn’t just a book or facts. It’s real

and fun stuff you see all the time.” Paula Blatt, a first-grade teacher, said the program gave her students a chance to get excited about science before it’s provided in the curriculum. “We do not have time to allocate in the schedule for science and it’s great to see our students have time to learn all this,” said Blatt. “I’m so excited for them because they are excited.” First-grader Syndey Kummer said the program was not only educational, but also “really” fun.

“My favorite part was when (Mallasch) made the cloud because it got so big,” said Aunner. PTO representatives said the Columbus-based COSI was asked by school staff to concentrate on meteorology. “We wanted the assembly to relate to the Ohio Achievement Assessment,” said Sheila Speth, a parent volunteer. “This helps them for their future test taking, but also, the kids just love it.” The OAA is a test for third to eighth-grade students which measures each students’ knowl-

edge of various subjects, according to the Ohio statewide testing website. Principal Jackie Hospelhorn said the program was a “complete success” and will contribute to the future success of each student when taking the statewide tests. “Although our students read about science, nothing compares to this hands-on experience,” said Hospelhorn. “Our students have always done well on the science aspect of the state test, and I think this program contributes to that.”

New Richmond students give back New Richmond Exempted Village School District students and their families donated 14,775 items to the New Richmond Food Pantry during the district’s annual student council food drives. The students at the high school collected 7,411 items followed by Locust Corner Elementary with 2,869, Monroe Elementary with 2,828 and New Richmond Elementary with 1,667. “In addition, New Richmond High School collected $949 in cash,” said NRHS student council adviser Jim Rob-

inson. “A combined group, led by Rick Mahan’s classes, the library, and the high school offices took first place each of the three weeks, collecting 1,959 items.” John Callebs’ math class was second with a total of 1,159 items. Students from Rick Mahan’s classes and library and office staff personnel get ready to deliver the 7411 items New Richmond High School students collected for the New Richmond Food Pantry.

New Richmond coach search under way

By Tom Skeen

NEW RICHMOND — With the departure of football coach Dan Scholz to Oak Hills High School, New Richmond has started the process of replacing the two-time Southern Buckeye Academic and Athletic Conference coach of the year. Scholz went 37-14 in his five years as a Lion, took his squad to the state playoffs and last lost a SBAAC game in October of 2009. The replacement process might not be as smooth and easy as some would think. As of right now, New Richmond is in a hiring freeze and the job is currently posted as a supplemental position. The search is under way to fill the position, applications are due by Jan. 27 and Superintendent Adam Bird, Athletic Director Doug Foote and Principal Dianne Spinnati want to have a recommendation to the school board by their Feb. 21 meeting. According to New Richmond, the search committee will consist of Bird and Foote. Spinnati will be out for a minimum of six weeks due to surgery but will be kept informed by Foote and Bird. “My hope is to be able to have someone to present to the school board by the February meeting,” Bird said. The job is being posted as supplemental because the school will

not know until May (when teachers make their intentions known about coming back the next year) if there will be any teaching positions open at the high school. “We do not know at this time if we will have a position available,” Bird said. “Absolutely, I would want to have our coach in the building.” As of today, current varsity assistant coach Rich Mahan and volunteer assistant Tim Dunn are in charge of the off-season lifting and conditioning programs. Scholz may have left, but he believes the program has a solid future ahead of itself. “I believe the football program has a great foundation,” the former coach said. “And the players know that their leadership is needed now to continue on what we have built. To know that there are10 players who have started at some point on both offense and defense, the 2012 Lions should be ready to continue to win championships and finally get to the undefeated season we have been pursuing.” While they might be without a coach, Bird believes that what happened reflects well on the Lions’ program “I think it speaks highly of our football program at New Richmond when a school from Ohio’s premier conference picks our coach to turn their program around,” Bird told the school board Jan. 11.

Archer looks to get over hump By Tom Skeen

BATAVIA — Batavia senior wrestler Gabe Archer is a three-time district qualifier but hasn’t been able to get over the hump and make it to state. Whether it is physical, mental or any other reason, Gabe isn’t going to let that stop him this year. The 171-pounder is off to a fantastic 20-1 start, including a perfect 7-0 performance at the Blanchester meet earlier this season. “This year has been good,” Archer said. “I am happy with my results, and I just work hard in practice and prove to myself that I can improve everyday and try my hardest every day.” To this point in the season, Archer’s results have not only impressed himself but his coach. “Gabe is doing excellent,” coach Larry Smith said. “He improves each day, each practice and each meet.” Archer’s success is rooted in his practice. Smith stresses the key to further success for Archer is all about his technique. “He is very technical,” Smith said. “It’s really all about technique for him. He loves to wrestle on his feet and be in the take-down position. His work ethic in practice and leader-

ship (have been key).” In 2011, Archer was named to the All-Southern Buckeye Athletic and Academic Conference First Team at the 171-pound weight class and helped his team win the SBAAC National Division. He went on to sectionals where he finished third while helping his team to a third-place finish as well. Districts were another disappointment when he failed to win a single match. The take-down part of his game is where he had success last season. In every victory at sectionals he was able to pin his opponent. When he got to districts and faced tougher opponents, he wasn’t able to get them to the mat like he had at sectionals resulting in the losses. Smith wants nothing more for Archer to improve in the areas that cost him in previous years. “I have 100 percent been focusing on his technique and improving on his take-down,” Smith said. Things get difficult when wrestlers reach the state tournament. Archer knows he is going to have to be the best he has ever been if he wants to get over the hump that is the district tournament. “I probably just mentally have to face it head-on,” the senior said. “I have to work hard and just remember that (state) is my goal.”

Hawkins was a fouryear starter in baseball and was named team captain of the basketball team. At this time New Richmond High School was participating independently so there were no All-League

Honors or League Championships to record. Despite not being associated with a league or conference, Hawkins is one of a very select few in the history of New Richmond Athletes to earn an athletic scholarship to a Division I school, The Ohio State University. Hawkins played baseball for the Buckeyes for three years.

After completing his studies at Cincinnati, he returned to his alma mater to begin his career. He was the middle school athletic director from 1993-1997 and the New Richmond High School boys tennis coach from 1994-2006. Todd amassed an impressive overall record of 148-35. He was nine times the American Division Coach of the Year. His teams were American Division Champions seven times and runner-ups five times. He coached the first

doubles team in NR and Clermont County to qualify for the state tennis tournament. During those same years (1994-2007) Todd served in the role of certified athletic trainer for the district, a program which he started. As the first certified athletic trainer in Clermont County, in 1999 Todd and New Richmond High School were recognized by the Ohio Athletic Trainers Association as a Model Athletic Training Program.

Hall headlines with scoring stats By Nick Dudukovich

MT. WASHINGTON — McNicholas High School senior forward Drew Hall has spent the past couple seasons lighting up the scoreboard for the Rockets. He shared the GCL scoring title with 17.3 points per game a season ago, and is second (through nine games) this winter with 18.9 points per contest. Here Hall, a 6-foot-5 wing player, discusses his ability to score, his plans for college and the toughest players he’s gone up against during his prep career. Question: Have you always had a knack for scoring? Answer: Yep, that’s one thing I do best. I get open and shoot the ball and try to do what I can for the team. Q: When you were younger, what attracted you to the game? A: Michael Jordan was playing when I was growing up. And I saw old films of Larry Bird and Reggie Miller and Ray Allen, and it attracted me. I wanted to be like them. Q: As a junior, you led the GCL in scoring, received all-state honorable mention, were named second-team allSouthwest Ohio and first-team all-GCL. What do those accomplishments mean to you? A: It means a lot. There are a lot of great players in the GCL. It’s a great league. To get an honor like that it’s great. It’s amazing.

Q: You’re going to play college ball next season. What attracted you to Maryville University? A: I took a visit to Maryville and coach Kevin Carroll saw me play down in Louisville for AAU. He called me and told me he liked the way I played. I really like (the school). All of the players down there are nice and the way I play, it fits into their program. They shoot a lot of three-pointers, and there are a lot of back-door cuts. Q: The Rockets are 4-5 this season (2-2 in conference). What do you think of the way McNick has played this season? A: I think we’ve played really well. We lost two we should have won, but we are still young. We have three or four guys returning. Everyone else, it’s their first varsity season, but everyone is getting better ever day. Q: What kind of potential does this team have come postseason time? A: We have a chance to go district, if not farther. None of these teams scare me. They are great, but we are a great team, too. Once we start to gel toward end of the season…it happened last year and I believe it’s going to happen this year again. Q: Best defender you’ve gone up against? A: There are probably two: Josh Lemons from La Salle and Heath Stricker from Badin. They are good defenders. They don’t give you anything. They make you really work for it.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR White highly respected

Clermont County residents may not realize how highly regarded Don White is among other county prosecutors. As a member of the executive committee of the OPAA (Ohio Prosecuting Attorneys Association) since 1998, Don has held several leadership positions; he was ultimately elected president. As past-president, Don continues his activity. Don White was also the OPAA's Legislative Committee Chairman, leading OPAA's work with the legislature and governor on matters important to criminal justice. For over seven years, Don White was OPAA's representative to The Ohio Sentencing Commission. He testified in the legislature on bills involving crimes, sentencing and victim's rights. He drafted an amendment to Ohio's aggravated murder sentencing statute. The typical county prosecutor is not called upon by his peers to draft laws and shepherd their passage through the legislature.

Don White's reputation throughout Ohio as an expert prosecutor developed over two decades of being at the helm of Clermont County law enforcement. One does not get elected and become immediately recognized as an expert throughout the state. Like everything else in his life, Don White worked his way up. Clermont County is extraordinarily fortunate to have a person of this caliber leading its prosecutor’s office. Joseph T. Deters Cincinnati

CH@TROOM Last week’s question What was the biggest reason for the Bengals’ success this season? Does that success make you more likely to spend money for tickets next season?

“I think the jury is still out. The organization still needs work to gain my loyalty. I think a new coach is a necessity.” E.E.C. “Folks, are we that hard up that we refer to a 9-7 record as a ‘success?’ That's barely more than half. (And don't forget that we lost 3 of the 4 pre-season games). Now an 11-5 or 12-4 season I would call a ‘success.’” Bill B. “Success? What part of this season looks like genuine success? “Near-wins and not getting your butt kicked every week is not exactly how pro sports defines success.” J.S.B. “The biggest reason for their success the first half of the season was that they had an easy schedule. The second half told the real story of the Bengals. “I do not look for them to have this kind of success next year. For this reason I don’t plan on going to any games next year. We have great high school football in this area that we should support.” D.D. “Success? What success??? This season was worse than others because the Bungles got us all excited about maybe having a real team that might contend. Then in their inimitable fashion, they let us down again by coming up short way too often. “How proud can we be of a team that got a back door pass into the playoffs only on the merits of other teams' poor performance? “I wouldn't buy a ticket to a Bengals game no matter how deep the discount. I like Andy Dalton, but you can't win football games when you toss three picks at a time. “Unless someone else buys the franchise, Mike Brown leaves the Queen City and we bring in players and coaches who really want to make our city proud, I won't have any faith that our team will be any different

'Nuff said!” M.M. “Determination and teamwork from the players, especially the younger ones. Dalton apparently has more communication skills, the receivers are into the game and not into their public appearance, and that added up to a playoff game!” O.H.R. “Success? Yes. But loosely defined. “The Bengals' reasons for success ... were multiple. Recent new additions of AJ and Andy and a few others have bolstered this team. A lousy, drama filled 2010 finish helped create an easier schedule in 2011. And the biggest reason for this ‘success’ was, almost no one expected a winning season. Thereby we call it success. We as Bengals fans are usually excited when the organization fulfills the least of its obligations. It's like being excited because your kid got a C in class after (20 years of) getting D's and F's. But Hope springs eternal and here we are again. “I went to two games this year and hopefully will see more next year. ‘Three clap Marvin’ (watch him after any bad play or three and out) inspires no confidence in me, but like many of us I see the potential of this young team against an aging AFC North competition. “So yeah, in defiance of my deflated Bengals Spirit ... , I'll go, root, cheer and yell at all those all those ridiculous fans who can't even make a little noise for the D .

White is ideal prosecutor

Don White, Clermont County

Prosecuting Attorney, not only knows the law but knows Clermont County and its needs. Don has been extraordinarily active in supporting the children of Clermont County. Whether as a long-time baseball and soccer coach or a member of his church and children’s school, over the years, Don is a consistent and vocal advocate for providing children educational, athletic and recreational activities beyond the school day. Don’s work on the Clermont County Boys & Girls Club as a board member for over a decade is a direct result of his work as prosecuting attorney, and frankly, his own background. He knows first-hand that some children due to circumstance of birth and environment do not have the advantages of those children from a stable family. Don’s charitable work over years demonstrates his commitment to give all children a future that does not involve a criminal record.

Golden Spurs work hard The Golden Spurs 4-H Club takes the true meaning of 4-H seriously. We strive to not only excel in our discipline, working with and showing horses, but make every attempt to fulfill the 4-H pledge that we recite at every meeting. Here are just a few examples of how 2011 proceeded: “I pledge my head to clearer thinking.” Our club is committed to leaning (and sharing) everything we can about horses. We were pleased that every member of our club attended “Skillathon” this year and were awarded more honors than can be mentioned here. We include an educational presentation at all of our meetings and focus our riding clinics on many different disciplines of riding. Our stall decorations at fair this year also included a poster with information on different “professional riders” on each stall. I pledge “my heart to greater loyalty.” It is difficult to find a club that cheers for and supports their members as much as The Golden Spurs does. Our advisers take the time and effort to post a

schedule of when each of our members will be showing at fair so that we can try to be available to assist them if needed or simply watch all of their hard work come together. We have also adopted a mentor program where our newer members are given one-on-one guidance by a more experienced member of our club. I pledge “my Cassidy hands to larger Deimling COMMUNITY PRESS service.” We enjoyed many difGUEST COLUMNIST ferent projects and events this year while providing service to our community; many of our members, advisors and family members volunteered as crossing guards for the cross country course at Rolex in Lexington, Ky. We volunteered for a clean-up day at the Serenity Horse Rescue earlier last year, and recently hosted a “Caring for Horses” clinic for “Starfire” members. I am not sure who had

more fun, their members or ours. I pledge “my health to better living.” We care for ourselves by promising to wear a helmet at every riding event even if one is “not required.” We care for our horses by making sure that they are loved and well cared for. We make it a priority to learn about the health and welfare of our horses; recent demonstration clinics involved: Measuring for proper blanket fit, proper lunging techniques, treating hoof ailments, applying poultices and leg wraps, identifying parasites, and considering mineral supplements. As you can see, we have a lot to be proud of and even more to be thankful for. We appreciate the continued support Clermont County offers its 4-H clubs in helping to prepare us to be involved citizens of our community.

In this season of giving, we, at Inter Parish Ministry, were truly grateful for the generosity and support shown to us throughout last year. For the past several years we have served more and more people each month as the economy continued to decline. Economic conditions have not only affected low income and working poor families, but also our donors, who may be struggling to support us as generously as they have in years past. Some people who were previous donors find themselves in need and have come through our doors for help. Food assistance is becoming the “new normal.” Food pantries are no longer used just to meet emergency food needs. Families rely more and more on pantries to put food on their tables. The new faces of hunger come from every neighborhood. Many have jobs, but are “underemployed.” Sen-

iors who have lost their retirement savings often have to choose between paying a medical bill and buying food. It is staggering to think that the words spoken by President Franklin Roosevelt so many years ago still apply. Tens of thousands of our neighbors are “ill housed, ill clothed and ill nourished.” Dwindling Lindsey Ein supplies COMMUNITY PRESS food and donations GUEST COLUMNIST are making it more and more difficult to meet the growing demand. At Inter Parish Ministry, we have experienced a 30-percent increase in families coming to us for assistance every month in 2011. In the past three years, the demand has

risen 115 percent. We serve all of Clermont County and parts of eastern Hamilton County and over 15,000 people have visited our locations in Newtown and Batavia this year, the most in our 47year history. So far, because of our supporters, we have not turned anyone in our service areas away. Saying thank you seems inadequate, but during this season of gratitude we wanted to let you know that we appreciate this community of support. Thank you to every person who has embraced our mission by giving of your time and treasure. Thank you to our volunteers and our donors who have helped provide hope to our neighbors in need throughout the year. You truly have made a difference.

Plans to rebuild covered bridge opposed By John Seney

BATAVIA — Neighbors of the historic covered bridge in Stonelick Township are opposing the plans of the Clermont County Engineer’s Office to rehabilitate the bridge. Catherine Rush-Ossenbeck, who with her husband Tim lives next to the bridge on StonelickWilliams Corner Road, Jan. 11 told Clermont County commissioners the rebuilt bridge would allow heavier vehicles and result in increased truck traffic. “The reason we moved to Stonelick Township was because it was a peaceful valley. We want it to stay like that,” she said. The bridge was closed to traffic in Gadbury 2010 after a garbage truck damaged it. Before it closed, the bridge had a three-ton weight limit. The engineer’s plans would increase the bridge’s load Kies capacity to12 tons. Rush-Ossenbeck also said the engineer’s plans would destroy the historic integrity of the bridge, which was built in 1878. The engineer’s plan includes adding arches inside the bridge to provide added support and replacing the siding, roof and flooring. “It totally destroys the historic nature of the bridge,” she said. Todd Gadbury, the county’s bridge engineer, said the bridge’s siding and roof are not original. “It has all been replaced over the years,” he said. He said materials used in restoring the bridge will have an authentic look. Gadbury said increasing the weight limit to 12 tons would improve the safety of the bridge.

The Clermont County Engineer's Office plans to rehabilitate the covered bridge on Stonelick-Williams Corner Road. PROVIDED “Our biggest concern, if we left the limit at three tons, is that someone would ignore the weight limit and damage the bridge,” he said. Gadbury said a car then might fall through the bridge because of the damage, injuring the people in the car. “We have to look at the safety of the traveling public,” he said. Gadbury said he did not think rebuilding the bridge would lead to a huge increase in traffic. “The geometry is not going to

allow large vehicles,” he said. John Kies, a spokesman for the Miami Rifle & Pistol Club, said his group supports the efforts of the residents opposed to the bridge plans. The club, with 1,800 members, owns facilities on Stonelick-Williams Corner Road. “We would like to preserve the bridge,” he said. Stonelick Township Trustee John Hanley and several other residents also spoke in favor of preserving the bridge.

Commissioner Bob Proud said the bridge was “near and dear to us.” He told the residents the commissioners would talk to officials in the engineer’s office. “We can’t force them, but we can talk to them,” Proud said. Proud said he thought County Engineer Pat Manger was trying to balance safety with historic preservation. Gadbury said the bridge project is expected to cost $1.1 million.

He said officials hope to put the project out for bid in the next few months and begin construction in the spring. The projected completion date is October or November of 2012, he said. Rush-Ossenbeck said residents opposed to the engineer’s bridge plans have started a website: She said more than 400 signatures have been collected on a petition opposed to the plans.

Pig roast to benefit hike/bike trail By Lisa J. Mauch

CLERMONT CO. — As Phase II of the Williamsburg-Batavia Hike/Bike Trail project starts this spring or summer, the project committee already is looking ahead to Phase III. “The route for Phase III is primarily abandoned roads that are within East Fork State Park boundaries,” said Chris Clingman, director of the Clermont County Park District. “The Clermont County engineers and Batavia Township have cleared some things so that we have a clear route so we can inspect it to see what the needs are to get that section paved,” he said. The trail project started in 2004 as an economic development venture by the village, said Williamsburg Mayor Mary Ann Lefker. The hope is to create a complete trail connecting Batavia and Williamsburg to East Fork. “We are reclaiming some of the old abandoned roadways that will allow hikers and bikers access to some of the best views and paths through nature that have been hidden from us for years,” said Lefker. “It will ultimately benefit not just Williamsburg, but Clermont County, as well.” Besides local donations, Clingman said the project also

has received federal and state grants. He estimated the cost for Phases I and II to be $1.1 million. The cost for Phase III hasn’t been determined. Phase I reopened the section of trail out of Williamsburg at South Broadway to the overlook at Harsha Lake. Phase II will reopen Cain Run Road into the park. Phase III will take the trail through the abandoned sections of Zagar and Short Summit roads. “We were able to start this trail with limited resources and made something pretty cool happen,” said Lefker. “Now our goal is to keep the trail moving until we have gone from the village of Williamsburg to the village of Batavia.” The hike/bike trail committee is hosting the fundraiser “Rock and Roast” from 6:30 p.m. to 11 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 21, at Pattison Park Lodge, 2228 U.S. 50, just west of Owensville. The event will feature a pig roast, a silent auction, a video presentation about the trail and music by Hey! Mr. D.J. Tickets are $20 a person or $200 for a table of eight. For more information or tickets, contact Mary Ann Lefker at 724-6107. To view a map of the trail, go to

Pork that looks as good as it tastes A couple of weeks ago I was on Ron Wilson’s garden show on the radio and we were talking about cooking and gardening trends. I brought Ron and his executive producer, Joe Strecker, this pork tenderloin. I gave the recipe over the air and Rita it garnered Heikenfeld a huge response – RITA’S KITCHEN I’m still getting requests for it. I thought I’d share it with you since it really is a nice way to prepare pork and looks as good as it tastes.

Peppered bacon-wrapped pork tenderloin Friend and Kentucky reader Carolyn Grieme served us this delicious stuffed tenderloin. Here’s my adaptation: 4 tablespoons butter or olive oil ¾ pound fresh mushrooms, sliced (I used Kroger blend with wild mushrooms but button and/or cremini work great, too) 1 cup chopped onion 1 ⁄3 cup chopped pecans, toasted (toast before chopping) Two tenderloins, about 1 pound each, trimmed Salt and pepper to taste (start with a teaspoon of each) 8 slices thick peppered bacon 1 ⁄3 to ½ cup firmly packed

Rita's stuffed pork tenderloin features mushrooms, onion, pecans and peppered bacon. THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD.

brown sugar, dark or light

Preheat oven to 450. Melt butter and add mushrooms, onions and sauté until tender. Stir in nuts and set aside. Butterfly pork by cutting a slit into the middle about 2⁄3 of the way down. It will open like a book. Then pound it out to even thickness and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Spread mushroom mixture evenly, leaving a bit of a border so the filling doesn’t ooze out too much. Roll up and wrap 4-5 bacon slices around tenderloin. If you like, you can get the pork ready to this stage the morning of your party but let sit out about 30 minutes prior to baking. (Now if you forget, that’s OK – just remember that it will take longer to bake). Place, seam side down, in roasting pan. Rub evenly with brown sugar and bake uncovered at 450 degrees for 15 minutes. Reduce temperature to 400 and

bake about 15 more minutes, or until meat thermometer registers 150. Don’t over bake so that meat stays moist. To toast pecans: Toast in single layer in 350 degree oven just until they smell fragrant, about 6 minutes or so.

Corn pudding No. 1 similar, to City BBQ

For Gary, a Bethel reader, who loves the corn pudding at this restaurant and wants to make it at home. I called the restaurant and they told me their pudding contained basically creamed corn and regular corn, milk, eggs, sour cream and corn meal, among other things. Here’s one from my files that readers say is similar except for the cheese, which the restaurant’s does not contain. If you like, leave the cheese out. 1 15 oz. can creamed corn 1 15 oz. can whole kernel corn, drained 2 large eggs, lightly beaten 1 cup sour cream

I’m with you – to strategize, to create, to find the big idea that’s going to break through. Want something new? Talk to me. Renee, at

1 cup shredded cheddar or Colby cheese 6 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted 1 small box corn muffin mix

Preheat oven to 350 and butter a 13- by 9-inch pan. Mix everything together well and pour into pan. Bake 45-60 minutes. Let sit 10 minutes before serving.

Five-star classic corn pudding Check out my blog Cooking with Rita at for this heirloom recipe. The texture is a lot lighter than the one above, and it’s a classic.

Sautéed carrots with sage

I first tasted this when daughter-in-law Jessie brought this side dish to dinner. She found it online and everybody loved them. I made a double recipe of this last night when we were having our neighbors over for dinner. It’s easy, full of good nu-

tender, about 10 minutes. Add seasonings and increase het to medium high. Cook until carrots are tender and lightly browned, stirring frequently, about 5-10 minutes. Sprinkle with sage and serve.

Ole Fisherman, wife enjoy sharing meals with friends Howdy folks, A week ago Wednesday, Ruth Ann and I went to friends of ours for the noon meal. These folks attend the same church as we do. The meal was wonderful. These folks are like us, they have feeders out for the birds, deer and squirrels. They also have some very beautiful cats that they love dearly. Thanks Denny and Elaine for a wonderful visit and meal. Thursday, Ruth Ann and I went grocery shopping then stopped at Red Lobster and had a meal. Then home and went shopping for a lady in Bethel. This is always a pleasure for us to do. We went to have our eyes checked. This has

been almost three years so we are checked for another year. We thank the Good Lord George for our Rooks health. OLE FISHERMAN Last week, we were watching Chessy the kitten watching a couple doves walking in the driveway. They would get a little closer, Chessy would get ready to jump on them. Then they would walk away, she would set down. This took place for a while then they flew away. Chessy is so comical to watch. She is in the veteri-

nary office in Bethel to be spayed. When I got up this morning, I went to the door to look for her as I always do, but then I realized she was up in Bethel to the vet's office. We will go get her this morning and it will be good to have her back home. It is amazing how we can get attached to something and when they are not with you how we miss them. This kitten is so beautiful. She loves to curl up on Ruth Ann’s lap. Now I know Ruth Ann really likes it you bet! We made a trip to Hillsboro Hospital Monday to visit a lady that has cancer and has been battling this for two years. They belong to the

Adams County Grange and are good friends. This Grange, Louisville Grange are very concerned about the senior citizens in their community. At Christmas they delivered 40 fruit baskets and everyone sure enjoyed them. Even due to the sickness of some members they got this done. Thanks Grangers! Now for you fishermen and fisherladies. The lake on Slade Road, Sherry’s Lake will be open for trout fishing Feb. 3. So get your fishing tackle ready for some fine fishing and eating. Thanks Gary and Sherry for this fine service you do. The crappie fishing is still good at the East Fork Lake. Several folks are catching nice crappie in 6 to 10 feet deep. The water temperature is between 42 and 44 degrees at the surface for good fishing. It seems the Good Lord has need of some more angels. There have been several folks that have passed on here lately. Mr. John Smith of Bethel, his wife Betty sings in the Bethel Methodist Choir. We have another friend, Orville Bradley, who passed away. He has been a neighbor for many years and liked to fish and hunt. His family, church family and neighbors will miss him. The Good Lord will watch over them. Ruth Ann and I went

It’s snowing outside and there could be accumulation tomorrow. By the time you read this, it could be 50 degrees again. I am confident, though, that there will be more snow. Shoveling snow is one activity that really can be dangerous - especially if you’re over 40. Surprised? Did you think it was only dangerous for older folks? Not so. Here’s the scoop on shoveling snow. Researchers have reported an increase in the number of fatal heart attacks among snow shovelers after heavy snowfalls. This rise may be due to the sudden demand that shoveling places on an individual’s heart. Snow shoveling can cause a quick increase in heart

much for the community like donating food to the InterParish Food Bank in Batavia, adopting a senior for Christmas, making pillowcases for children in the hospital with cancer and many other things. The Monroe Grange took in a couple new members at their last meeting. It is alive and very active. If anyone is interested in joining this very active Grange, give us a call at 734-6980. Put on your calendar the Bethel Lions Club will have their next Pancake Breakfast on Feb. 18. So you can eat breakfast out then have supper at the Grange. Now Ruth Ann will put the recipe for her cornbread with cracklings in as she had a request for this. You can buy the cracklings at Kroger. 1 cup cornmeal, 1 cup all purpose flour, 1/4 cup sugar, 4 teaspoons baking powder, 1 egg, 1 cup milk, 1/4 cup oil and break up about 1/2 cup cracklings. Grease a pan, I like a 9-inch cast iron skillet. Mix all the ingredients together and pour into pan. Bake at 400 degrees for about 25 minutes. Start your week by going to the house of worship of your choice and praise the Good Lord. God bless all. More later.

down to New Richmond for Jerry Henderson's visitation he was in business for many years as a car dealer and sold Dodge. His brother Gene and Virginia have been very dear friends of ours for many years. God Bless all the Henderson Family. It seems we are attending a meal at someone’s home or having friends here for a meal. Last Tuesday we had Barb and Mort here for a noon meal of fried fish, acorn squash, salad, broccoli and apple crisp for dessert. We got one of these gadgets that you put on the driveway and one in the house so we can hear someone come in. Well folks, we did not realize the amount of deer that cross our front yard each night. Last week the thing in the house went off four or five times. I looked outside, and there were about five or six deer grazing on the grass. We had no idea how many went over our yard at night. The Monroe Grange will be having a cornbread, bean, vegetable soup and maybe some great potato soup dinner and of course some great desserts. There is a possibility they just might have hot tea, along with the coffee, water or soft drinks. Now this feast will be held on Feb. 18 starting at 5 till 7 p.m. and is open to the public.

rate and blood pressure. One study determined that after Linda Eppler only two CARING & SHARING minutes of shoveling, sedentary men’s heart rates rose to levels higher than those normally recommended during aerobic exercise. Two minutes! If you’re older or out of shape, there’s much more of a chance of hurting yourself by shoveling. Even people who regularly exercise can find shoveling to be strenuous if they try to tackle the job quickly without taking breaks. Those most at risk for a heart attack include anyone who has already had a heart attack, individuals with a history of heart disease, those with high blood pressure or high cholesterol levels, smokers, individuals leading a sedentary lifestyle. If you are physically fit, do some warm-ups before you start shoveling. Flexing and stretching exercises will loosen up the muscles and prepare them for the job ahead. Next, check your cloth-

ing. Are you dressed appropriately? Wear several layers of warm, lightweight clothing that do not prevent you from moving around comfortably. The inner layer should be thermal underwear that allows perspiration to escape from the skin surface. Make sure your head, (especially your ears), feet and hands are well covered. Boots should be waterresistant and high-cut, and should provide good traction. Gloves should be light and flexible and give you a good grip. Shoveling can be made more difficult by the weather. Cold air makes it harder to work and breathe, which adds some extra strain on the body. There also is the risk for hypothermia, a decrease in body temperature, if one is not dressed correctly for the weather conditions. And of course, everyone knows, lift with your legs and not with your back. Some signs you should stop shoveling are shortness of breath, heavy sweating or any kind of pain. Best advice: Invest in a snow blower. They’re worth the money.

Research into farming practices to begin Register In a continuing effort to protect and restore waterways in Clermont County, the East Fork Collaborative is partnering with Miami University’s Institute for the Environment and Sustainability (IES) to research farming practices across the county. “Sustainable agriculture practices can reduce the runoff of nutrients and soil into a watershed, resulting in a positive impact

in the quality of our water resources,” said John McManus with the East Fork Collaborative. Sustainable agriculture is a way of raising food that meets the needs of the present generation without compromising the needs of future generations. “While we have many producers that use sustainable farming practices, we want to better understand how to help other pro-

ducers embrace the method, without adversely impacting their businesses,” said McManus. He said the partnership will explore barriers to sustainable agriculture through surveys and focus groups. “Our goal is to gather feedback directly from producers about the challenges they face when implementing sustainable practices,” said Jacob Stone, a graduate student

in Miami’s IES program. “With this research in hand, the East Fork Collaborative can design programs that work with the producers in a way that will, in the long run, help both producers and the environment.” “Every region has unique soil, weather and political aspects that impact farming, so the best way for us to know what challenges the producers

in Clermont County face is to ask them,” said Lori Hillman, U.S. Department of Agriculture Natural Resources Conservation Services representative. The East Fork Watershed Collaborative was formed in 2001 to bring together the interests within the watershed to protect and enhance the biological, chemical and physical integrity of the river and its tributaries.
