West Clermont to extend instructional hours By Forrest Sellers

By Keith BieryGolick

UNION TWP. — The West Clermont Local School District will have longer instructional hours beginning next school year. Superintendent Keith Kline said the district currently has one of the shortest instructional days in the area. By implementing these changes the district will be on average with a number of other schools. District spokeswoman Debbie Alberico said with the change the elementary schools will have 116 more instructional hours at the end of the year, while the secondary schools will have 43 more hours. The middle and high schools will gain an additional 15 minutes per day; while the elementary schools gain 40 minutes. The specific times for the schools are: » 7 a.m. to 2:15 p.m. for Amelia and Glen Este middle schools. » 7:15 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. for Amelia and Glen Este high schools. » 8:20 a.m. to 3 p.m. for Amelia, Brantner and Clough elementary schools. » 9:05 a.m. to 3:45 p.m. for Holly Hill, Merwin, Summerside, Willowville and Withamsville-Tobasco elementary schools. Alberico said times for some of the elementary schools were varied for busing purposes. “(This) will allow the students to have more instructional time,” said school board President Tina Sanborn. “They will be ready to hit the gorund running when they graduate from school.” As part of state requirements, next school year attendance will be measured in hours as opposed to days. Sanborn said the revised schedule was already under consideration prior to the state making this change.

CLERMONT CO. — Shannon Goddard is a great mom – when she’s not using drugs. That’s the message her 15year-old daughter has left in countless birthday, Christmas and other cards over the last 17 months Goddard has been clean. Goddard is a 38-year-old mother of two children in Clermont County’s Batavia Village. She used heroin every day for a year and a half. “My kids hated me,” Goddard said. “I wasn’t a mom.” Her daughter has moved back in, but Goddard’s 13-yearold son still lives with her exhusband, although he is more open to visiting her now. “That life I was living every single day was hell,” Goddard said. “You don’t know if you’re going to shoot up one day and end up on the floor. It’s like Russian roulette.” Goddard overdosed at a Gold Star Chili restaurant in Norwood close to two years ago. She woke up on the bathroom floor with a firefighter straddling her chest. “Welcome back. You just got your second chance,” the firefighter told her. Goshen Township Police Chief Ray Snyder has seen a lot of dead bodies in his 33 years in law enforcement.

But what he sees with heroin users still surprises him. “In the early ’80s (heroin) was rare, we called them jun-

kies and they were typically from inner cities. You just never saw it, never really heard of it. Now it’s every single day,”

The Clermont Recovery Center in Batavia offers rehabilitation programs and care for individuals suffering from substance abuse, mental illness and other related illnesses. Both Jesse Weeks, 33 of Withamsville, and Shannon Goddard, 38 of Batavia, went through its heroin addiction program and are now clean. KEITH BIERYGOLICK/THE COMMUNITY PRESS

New event facility planned for Batavia Township By Forrest Sellers

BATAVIA TWP. — A new event facility is expected to open in Batavia Township in 2015. “The Barn and Cottages at Hope’s Way” will include a barn for special events as well as five guest cottages. It will be located on about 18 acres along Amelia Olive Branch Road. Developer Jonah De-

Chief Steve Pegram said his crews make multiple runs every week responding to residents who are unconscious and not breathing. It’s often an ugly scene when first responders arrive. “I’m talking lifeless (bodies), and they’ve been down for God knows how long. They’re blue – literally blue – and I’m ready to

velopment Corp. obtained a zone change for the site which had been zoned residential. A zone change to “planned development” was recently approved by the Clermont County Planning Commission, the Batavia Township Zoning Commission and the Batavia Township Trustees. “The goal is that it feel like a farm environment,” said Gayle Schneider, who along with her husband, Gary, is part of the Jonah call the coroner’s office,” Snyder said.

“It’s an epidemic all over,” said Darrell Roberts, a Goshen Township firefighter/paramedic. “It doesn’t just affect one age group or section of the population. It’s 16through 50-year-olds or beyond.” And it’s not just low-income, disenfranchised people using the drug either, said Lee Ann Watson, associate director of the Clermont County Mental Health and Recovery Board. “People that you wouldn’t expect to be addicted to heroin are using,” Watson said. “It’s in the suburbs, it’s in our schools.” Northern Kentucky gets a lot of attention for its heroin problems, but it’s just as bad in Clermont County, Watson said. “It may actually be worse.

figures we’re seeing we are considered one of the hot spots in the state,” she said. The Cincinnati Enquirer reported in its series “Heroin: Prescription for Pain” that drug overdose deaths in Clermont County rose 2,350 percent between 2000 and 2010, or about 30 times the increase in the state’s largest county, Cuyahoga. The problem has only gotten worse. » In 2009, the county recorded 14 heroin-related accidental deaths. Since then, the number of deaths has jumped 150 percent. » In 2013, the county recorded 35 heroin-related accidental deaths – with officials still awaiting toxicology reports in some cases. When looking at all accidental drug deaths in the county, about 44 percent of those involved heroin in 2009. In 2013, about 66 percent of those deaths involved heroin. Capt. Steve Leahy, in charge of investigations for the Clermont County Sheriff’s Office, said heroin is difficult to control because people are, for the most part, buying it outside the county. “Heroin is kind of unique in that a lot of people don’t go buy mass quantities and sell it. They go downtown, get enough for the day and maybe stop somewhere along the way and use,” Leahy said. “Suppliers – the people holding it – may be in Cincinnati, they may be in Northern Kentucky, they may be in Hamilton (County). “That’s not to say there aren’t people selling (in Clermont County), because there are, but that obviously makes it much harder to stem the flow.” Goddard used to make daily trips to Cincinnati with $20 or $40 to buy heroin. At first she waited until she got back to Clermont County to use, but

“You don’t know if you’re going to shoot up one day and end up on the floor. It’s like Russian roulette.” Shannon Goddard

then got so addicted she couldn’t wait. When she overdosed it was her mom who drove her to Norwood. “Heroin takes the soul out of you really. You don’t care about anything, yourself included,” Goddard said. “I told myself I would never shoot up. I ended up shooting up. I told myself I would never use someone else’s needle. I used someone else’s needle.” Now Goddard must make regular trips to University Hospital in Cincinnati for hepatitis C treatments. If left untreated, hepatitis C can lead to liver failure, liver cancer and possibly death. Goddard contracted the disease sharing needles. Prescription pills are the gateway to heroin for many. When a prescription runs out, the addiction remains, and it’s much cheaper to buy heroin than pills. “That’s me,” said Goddard, who has pulmonary hypertension, a condition which causes shortness of breath and a “racing” heart beat. Her condition provided a perfect excuse to get pills she eventually stopped using for their intended purpose. “For years doctors would just ... see my heart and lung condition (and) anything I asked for they would give me. I could walk away with 40 extra strength Vicodins no problem. That was my addiction first,” Goddard said. Jesse Weeks, a 33-year-

old from Withamsville, did two prison stints because of the heroin addiction he’s struggled with since 1999. In 2008, he lived in a tent for about eight months. “When you’re sick you don’t care,” Weeks said. “You get physically sick, you get (diarrhea), your legs hurt – you (use heroin) just to feel normal.” Weeks overdosed behind the Home Depot on Beechmont Avenue in Union Township last year. He spent six hours in the hospital and then shot up again the next day. “You never forget the feeling – that rush,” Weeks said. Weeks recently graduated from the Clermont Recovery Center and has been clean for about nine weeks. “My son, who is 7 years old, he needs me,” Weeks said.

What can be done?

Clermont County commissioners approved Ohio’s first community alternative sentencing center last year. People convicted of nonviolent misdemeanors can be sent to the center and receive treatment, counseling, training and other services. In addition, the Clermont Recovery Center is considering using a new drug called Vivitrol when users are released from jail. Vivitrol decreases the chance of relapse by blocking receptors in the brain to keep an addict from getting high on an opiate-based drug. Vivitrol was used in a pilot program in Warren County, where reaction to it has been mixed. In 2011, Warren County inmates who received Vivitrol injections had a 25 percent success rate. Todd Tudor, a nurse manager at the Clermont Recovery Center, said the center could eventually launch its own Vivitrol program, but for now is sending patients to Brown and Warren counties for the treatment. Even if Vivitrol proves to be more effective than its 25 percent success rate in 2011, heroin is a problem without a simple solution that is still confounding officials. “I really don’t know what to do,” Snyder said. “It’s almost like shooting fish in a bucket. There’s never any end to it, but you’ve got to keep trying.” Want to know more about what is happening in Clermont County? Follow Keith BieryGolick on Twitter: @KBieryGolick



5K event is set to help people in need By Jeanne Houck

MILFORD — For years, young students “nickel and dimed” Mary Miller and she accepted the small donations to her charity with the big heart with which they were given. Now, you can register for a Saturday, April 12, fundraising run that will benefit the needy people with whom lifelong Milford resident Miller and the students were so concerned. Registration is open for the third annual MMM (Milford Miami Ministry) Mary Miller Memorial Family 5K Walk/Run. It’s scheduled to begin at 9 a.m. at Miami Meadows Park at 1546 state Route 131 in Milford. Proceeds benefit the Mary Miller Fund at the Milford Miami Ministry, the “MMM” in the race’s

name, which provides emergency financial assistance and maintains a food pantry serving families in need who reside in the Milford Exempted Village School District. It was those people Miller, who died in 2009, had in mind when she established the Mary Miller Fund in 1952. The fund drew supporters of all ages, but students in the school district seemed to take a special interest in collecting money to help needy people pay for food, housing, clothing, heat and medical care. “Mary Miller was well known for helping families in the Milford area with food and other assistance for many years,” said Jan Gerdom, secretary of the Milford Miami Ministry board of directors and a member of the 5K’s planning committee. “Milford school stu-

dents over the years fondly recall donating pennies, nickels and dimes to support her work,” said Gerdom, who was a long-time Milford resident before moving to Sycamore Township. Miller, in turn, had a special concern for children, Gerdom said. “They were typically innocent bystanders when families had financial difficulties so it was always about the kids,” Gerdom said. “Milford Miami Ministry has been honored to continue her legacy by distributing funds collected through the Mary Miller Fund.” Fundraising by students has become more sophisticated and profitable. In December, Milford High School DECA students donated $2,200 and more than $5,500 in toys to the Mary Miller Fund.

Zoning board upholds beetle operation’s noise violation By Keith BieryGolick

TATE TWP. — A treegrinding operation essential to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s efforts to eradicate the Asian longhorned beetle in Clermont County could be forced to move. That’s the potential ramification of a April 1 Tate Township Board of Zoning Appeals hearing, where members voted 3 to 2 to uphold a violation they previously rescinded. Bzak Landscaping operates the tree-grinding yard on state Route 232 and was sent a violation notice in November. The township’s zoning resolution states industrial operations cannot emit “noise, smoke, dust, vibration, heat, bright light, odor or other obnoxious effects beyond the limits of its lot.” Michael Bieszczak,

president of Bzak Landscaping, appealed the violation and won. That decision rankled residents who claimed they weren’t given proper public notice to the appeals hearing. Township trustees agreed, and when it was discovered some public notice letters were hand delivered late, trustees ordered the zoning board to redo the hearing. At the second hearing, only four members of the five-member board showed up, and those members split a vote to rescind the violation 2 to 2. At the next hearing Board of Zoning Appeals members Lockwood Doench, Jennifer Shinkle and Beverly Jacquez voted against a motion to rescind the violation and allow Bzak to continue its operation as is. Board members David Petrick and Tony Tolin voted for the motion, but it

was defeated 3 to 2. Doench previously voted to allow the operation to continue. He changed his mind because “it is our job to go by the what the zoning book says,” he said. The zoning resolution, which Doench admitted

was “poorly written,” essentially states any noise outside the industrial property is not permitted. Brittnye Bowman, who lives in a house on the treegrinding property, argued the grinding only occurs during business hours when most people are at

work. She said the property was used as an industrial site before the USDA started grinding trees there. The board’s decision was made “all based on emotion, not facts,” Bowman said.

Richard Carmasino, the property owner, and Bieszczak plan to appeal the decision to a higher court. Township zoning inspector George Eckert said the case would go to mediation next, then possibly municipal court.

Pierce Twp. plans egg hunt Pierce Township’s annual Easter egg hunt is set for Saturday, April 12, at the Pierce Park, 961 Locust Corner Road. Registration begins at 10 a.m., the Easter bunny arrives at 10:30 a.m., and the egg hunt starts at 11 a.m. Children will be divided into four groups for the egg hunts, and there is a prize drawing at the end. Call Laura Bassett with questions, 752-6787. The Easter Bunny will ride into the city on the Milford Community Fire Department’s antique fire truck as special guest of Milford’s “Easter Eggstravaganza” from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Saturday, April12, at Riverside Park on Water Street. “The Easter Eggstravaganza has become one of the most widely attended events sponsored by the Parks and Recreation Commission,” said

Charles Evans, parks and recreation chair. “It is fun to see the expressions on the faces of the children when they see the Easter bunny arrive on the fire truck and get their picture taken.” Children 10 years old and younger are invited to bring their Easter baskets and participate in one of three egg hunts, which will be divided up by age. There also will be face painting, balloons and refreshments. “Easter Eggstravaganza is Milford’s newest tradition,” said City Council Member Geoff Pittman. “It’s a wonderful way to start the outdoor season and meet your neighbors all while building memories with your children.” The rainout date will be 10:30 a.m. Saturday, April 19.

he Glen Este High School Cheerleaders competed in the National High School Cheerleading Championship in February. The competition, hosted by Walt Disney World’s Wide World of Sports, is presented annually by the Universal Cheerleading Association and is widely recognized as the nation’s pre-

miere high school cheerleading competition. After qualifying at a Regional Event over 500 teams from across the US and several other countries earned the chance to vie for a coveted national title in one of over 40 divisions. Glen Este High School Cheerleaders took home the National

Championship in the new Game Day-non building Varsity Division. Routines consisted of a crowd cheer, sideline chant and band dance and were limited to three minutes in length. This new Game Day Category was intended to highlight the efforts sideline cheerleaders make each week to raise crowd

participation, excitement and school pride in order to bring about an amazing and fun game time experience for all attending. Although all of this year’s cheerleaders participated at November’s Regional Qualifying Event at Centerville High School, only 14 girls were able to

make the trip to Orlando to represent the Trojans on the National’s mat. The group is shown with the Game Day Trophy, wearing their 2014 National Champions jackets and medals. The team also received a 2014 NHSCC Game Day National Champions banner, which has been placed proudly in the GEHS Gym.

Pierce Twp. police train for active shooter at school


The Pierce Township Police Department recently conducted active shooter training at Locust Corner Elementary School. Officers performed a variety of practical exercises in individual scenarios, which could be a “shoot or no-shoot” situation. “We’re challenging our officers to use verbal commands, make quick decisions and utilize good weapon-control skills,” Pierce Twp. Police Lt. Edward Dye said. Merwin Elementary School Principal Jackie Hospelhorn

and St. Bernadette School Principal Lizanne Ingram, along with three of her staff members, also attended the training. School staff interacted with officers during the scenarios to help bring more realism to the training. “The collaboration between the three Pierce Schools and the Police Department is conducive for more secure schools,” Dye said. “These hands-on, evolving exercises will help prepare our officers in handling this type of dangerous situation.”

» In his 10th year at Amelia, Charles Swift leads both teams at the school off of Clough Pike. Amelia’s boys finished fifth in the Southern Buckeye Conference-American Division last season with a small roster. Expected to make big contributions for the Barons are senior distance runner Grant Wenker, junior hurdler Aaron Krebiehl, junior thrower Cameron Behymer, freshman distance runner Jacob West and freshman long jumper/sprinter Blake Boykin. Also on the roster are juniors Ronnie Kirk, Matt Itapson and Stephen Haas; sophomore Jonathan Carnes and freshmen Tom Casavant and Anthony Fisher. “Everyone on the team has worked hard to prepare for the upcoming season and are pushing each other to do more,” Swift said. “Juniors and seniors are taking on leadership roles as they work with the five newcomers to track.” Amelia’s girls are led by senior thrower Rachel Smith, senior distance runners Katie Kephart and Jennifer Wilson; junior jumper Linda Ault, junior high jumper/sprinter Victoria Greeni, sophomore distance runner Trudi Thomas and freshman distance runner Caitlin Arhmann. “Although the team is small in numbers, they maintain a positive attitude in their training and are working together to be the best they can as a team,” Swift said. “Each has their own individual goals, but are also supportive of their teammates.” After the Madeira Invitational April 8-9. Amelia will compete at the New Richmond Invitational April 15-16.


» Bulldogs boys head coach Brian Lyons has a small – only 11 athletes came out – but reasonably experienced squad this spring. Junior KeyShawn Foley – best known as the Batavia football quarterback – runs the sprints at 100 and 200 meters. Senior twins Griffin and Hunter Stith hit the track in the distance events after reaching the regional cross country meet in the fall. Junior Ryan Cooper covers the middle distances at 800 and 1,600 meters. Keep an eye on freshmen Dylan Young (sprints) and Joey Royer (400, 800), who should have an immediate impact. “The key for us is going to be how we can maximize the parts we have,” Lyons said. “We obvi-


ously don’t have a lot of depth, so we’re going have to be smart about where we run people in what events to make sure we can score.” The girls team is even smaller; head coach Mike Hatfield only has seven athletes, but is hopeful a few more may join the team. “They’re all underclassmen, so maybe with those numbers you can hope they can convince some of their friends to come out and we can grow this team,” Hatfield said. Sophomores Destiny Sunday (100, 200) and Lauriann Esz (400, 800) are returning runners, while freshman Miwayla Lombe is fastest in the 100. Her sister Tasha, a junior, is trying track for the first time and looking for an event where she can specialize. Freshman Madison Switzer will contribute in several events. “Our distances and our field events need some help,” Hatfield said. “We’re trying to find some long jumpers among the sprinters, just to have some more versatility. But they’re working at it and getting better.” The Bulldogs opened the season April 8 at the Madeira Invitational.

Glen Este

» Sixth-year coach Ray Prueitt heads up the Glen Este girls and boys for 2014. Both squads feature young performers. Among the Glen Este boys standouts are a number of sophomores, led by Jacob Hamilton who qualified for the regional meet in the pole vault last season. Josh Stottler is also a pole vaulter/sprinter, Austin Snyder handles the shot put and discus and Brandon Holloway is sprinter/long jumper. Glen Este’s girls are led by senior distance runner Jamie Thomas and junior sprinter Lindsey Singleton. Topping the field events for the Lady Trojans is sophomore pole vaulter Ashley Mues who holds the school record. “They work hard and get along well,” Prueitt said of his squad. “They are a small team but dedicated to improving.” Upcoming meets for Glen Este are with Norwood April 11, followed by the New Richmond Invitational April 15-16.

Miami Valley Christian Academy

» Steve Krebsfanger coaches the boys and girls of MVCA that consists of 27 total kids. Both squads train at Short Park in Newtown behind the school grounds. “We train there and at Little Miami bike trail,” Krebsfanger said. “We’re a homeless track team. Mariemont High School has also been wonderful to us to let us use their track for a couple days.” The MVCA girls feature twotime league champion sopho-

were shut out in the high jump last year – a good chance to score well in the jumps.” The Rockets hosted 25 schools in the the Division II Coaches Classic April 4 and 5.

more Rachel McCoskey and Annie Lefler, a senior. Both are distance runners. Michele Lee from the basketball team is also a valuable contributor. On the horizon, Krebsfanger will be bolstered by a strong cross country group coming to the school for next season. Ali Petty is a current freshman making a difference and eighthgrader Laura Vilardo has been a top junior high performer. The MVCA boys team is led by Alex Ammerman, a sprinter who has committed to the University of the Cumberlands for football. Freshman Matt Hoyle will also help in the 200 and 400 meters. Throwing the discus and shot put for the Lions is sophomore Lukas Moreland. Upcoming meets for the Lions are at Cincinnati Country Day April 11 and at Reading April 25.


» The Rockets have a new head coach in Kyle Jepson, who steps into the lead role after five years as an assistant coach with the program. His boys team features 21 athletes, six of them seniors. “That’s maybe a little lower number than what we’d like,” Jepson said. “The good news is the boys all will be able to contribute.” The strength of the team lies in the distance corps, led by seniors Connor Nelson, Anthony

Luster, T.J. McSwiggan and Mark Flatt. Senior pole vaulters Daniel Sandmann and Tanner Cardone should provide points and additional leadership. Junior thrower Will Algeier returns after qualifying for the regional meet last season. Sophomores Blaise Harpring (high jump, hurdles, sprint relays) and Jonathan Wenzel (100 and 200 meters) bring good speed to the club. Freshmen Reese Jabin (long jump, sprints), Ben Johnston (hurdles) and Evan Por (hurdles, high jumps) should contribute right away. “Our seniors will be our best athletes,” Jepson said. “We’re really counting on them to set the example. “With a lot of the young guys, we’re trying to start them on some of the events that take a lot of technique and practice in the hope of developing them so that two, three years from now, they will be the strength of the team.” On the girls side, McNick finished second in the GCL CO-Ed and the Division II district meet, falling to Alter in the former and New Richmond in the latter by a combined eight points. “We graduated 42 of the 103 points we scored at districts, but I think this team will be even a little better than last year,” Jepson said. “We have great depth and we’ve added some really strong athletes.” One of them is senior Catherine Adams, running her first year of track after winning a cross country district title in the fall. Freshman Adrian Ell comes in with a 5-foot-1 high jump, just an inch off the school record, before ever competing on the varsity level. Two other freshmen in Megan Rack (distance) and Morgan Vogler (sprints, hurdles and throws) should make an impact from the outset. “To win both those meets (the GCL and district), which is our goal, we’re going to have to score points in just about every event. We’ve got good sprints, good distances and with somebody like Adrian - where we

» Boys head coach Shelbey Pride has 30 athletes on the squad this spring, including several who qualified for the district meet in 2013. Senior Pierce Burnam – who recently committed to Wilmington College – returns after a regional run in the hurdles last season. Other regional qualifiers back are sophomore Austin Torrens (middle distance), who advanced in the 800, and senior Branston Evans (throws), who advanced in the discus Junor Bobby Bingham had regional experience in cross country in the fall and will lead the distance contingent. Senior Malik Davis is on the track for the first time and should be among the top sprinters. “I would say we’re a wellmixed team,” Pride said. “We lost some of our distance team from last year, but our sprint team is a lot deeper. We’ve got some good talent in the field, too.” Girls head coach Terri Flamm as 39 athletes, about half of whom are returning. Seniors lead the way in several events, including Olivia Behymer (100, 200), Eleanor Wildey (discus), Ashlee Lewis (shot put) and Hannah Hall (long jump). Newcomers to watch include sophomores Claire Burns (1,600, 3,200) and Maren Hance (400, 800), as well as freshmen Lexi Forsee (sprints and high jump) and Shelbi Simpson (distance). “On paper we’re maybe a little better than we were last year,” Flamm said. “Assuming everyone stays healthy and continues to develop and work hard, we could have a pretty good season.”


» Numbers are a little down for the boys team as Christ Rolph rolls out a roster of 18. “We lost experience in most of the technique events,” Rolph said. “I lost my two best hurdlers and a district champion in the pole vault. We’re replacing some of those with people who have done the events, but only in practice, not competition, so we’ll see. “Over the last 10 years we’ve been no worse than third (in the SBC) at any point in that time. I think we’ll find a way to compete again this season.” Key for the Wildcats will be senior Cody Minnie, the defending league champ in the long jump and third-place finisher in the 100 meters. Classmate Pearce Williford also runs sprints and long jumps. Junior Nathan Webb runs the See TRACK, Page A7

middle distances, along with first-year senior Andrew Ralston. Senior Tyler Boggs returns to lead the throwing contingent after not competing the last two season. Keep an eye on freshman K.C. Jones in the distance events. On the girls side, head coach Karen Healey also has 18 out – including five

seniors – for a team trying to defend its league championship from a year ago. “I’m hoping we can win the SBC one more time,” Healey said. “If everyone stays healthy and works hard, I think we have a good chance.” The seniors will be key. They include Lindsey Smith (distance), Carley Pringle (high jump, long jump, pole vault and hurdles), Alexis Donphnier (jumps, relays) and Alyssa Donphnier (hurdles, relays). The fifth senior is

Mallory Guess, out for her first season of track and competing in the shot put and discus. Junior Heather Mcintosh anchors the distance corps after reaching the regional meet in cross country in the fall, while classmate Ashley Jermer will add depth to the sprints. Freshman Hope Schaljo will be an immediate helping, running everything from 100 to 400 meters and participating in the relays.

first singles player and the first doubles team that won two matches in the 2013 sectional tournament. Seniors Austin Conner and Nick Herron move into the first and second singles slots, respectively, after earning all-SBC honors at second and third singles last season. Sophomore Mark Knauer moves into the third slingles slot after playing second doubles last year. Juniors Nick Hornberger and Austin Hitch team up as the new first doubles duo, while sophomores Andrew Truske, Josh Stephens and Charlie Hatfield join freshman Luke Herron in the rotation for second doubles. “If our singles come through we should challenge Blanchester again for the league,” Nau said. “Last year we split two

matches with them and they were both 3-2. It will probably be that close again. It’s become a good rivalry. “Our seniors are not only very good players, but they’ve been great about welcoming the younger players and leading the team. We really count on them for that.” The Bulldogs play all away matches with no tennis courts on campus. “We pile into the Suburban and we hit the road,” Nau said. “Honestly, some of the trips to and from the matches are as much fun as the matches themselves. But where most teams use that time after school before the match to practice, we don’t have that with no home courts. I think we do great given the fact we lose that much court time to travel.”

Clermont County’s teens are showing green leadership

The Block Party at The Banks is full of people on Opening Day.FILE PHOTO Every week the Community Press asks readers a question they can reply to via e-mail. It’s called our “Chatroom.” There is a local and national campaign to make baseball’s opening day an official holiday. Do you think this is a good idea? Why or why not?

“As the Reds are the oldest professional baseball organization in American history, going back to1869, if this were to officially happen Cincinnati would be a good place to try it out as a local holiday. Whether or not you’re a baseball fan you have to admit that.” TRog

“I think this is a very good idea. Baseball is king in this city and we take this day every year to honor that.” Terry Garvin

“ Things are just fine here in Cincinnati on Opening Day. If others wish to do the same thing they should be able to do it without bringing in the local or national governments.” R.V.

“Why not? Since a great deal of people take off work for



Last week’s question


Opening Day on any professional baseball team, and watch their parades, might not be a bad idea. I think Cincinnati should be the first selected for this since they had the first professional baseball team!”

THIS WEEK’S QUESTION Would you support tolls for a new Brent Spence Bridge if that was the only way to get the bridge replaced?


“I’m not really sure if other cities celebrate Opening Day in the same fashion as Cincinnati. There is a lot of activity that is exhibited on Opening Day from early morning and till late in the evening. I know the stadium only seats approximately 40,000, but many many more take off work that day, due to sickness or whatever, and boost our economy by frequenting a local establishment somewhere to watch on TV. “I also understand that Opening Day causes some of the highest absenteeism within our school systems, and possibly the lowest production within most companies. Did you ever try to get anything done with a local or county office on this day? I know when I was working, we always had a TV and refreshments for our customers in the lobby and had the employees dress in their Reds garb. This is a day of enjoy-

ment and socializing amongst thousands of people, and if we can’t do this just for one day, maybe we should just keep on as is and continue to play hooky.” D.J.

“Yes. Let’s have some fun outdoors after the winter dulls. This should not be a bargaining chip in business but a national day to miss work or school with no penalty at either. Less we forget it has been labeled the national pastime. “Boys and girls start playing at very young ages, moms and dads cheer in the bleachers rings in small towns to large cities, sand lots. So, let’s play ball.”

April 20-26 is observed as Earth Week around the world. Today I will reflect on this time and write about what it means to me. In October 2005, about 20 Clermont high school students piled into a room in the modulars Christopher at Milford Myers COMMUNITY PRESS High for the first meeting GUEST COLUMNIST of the Leaders’ Environmental Actions Foundation, or LEAF. Over the next five years, the program flourished as a non-hierarchal compact that stringently promoted environmental integrity among all of Clermont’s students. The organization functioned through commissioned acts which were planned by each of its members. LEAF Warriors, as we were called, organized the recycling audit and disposal program for paper and plastic; implemented pan-campus cleanups each fall and spring; successfully lobbied schools to place vegan meal options in cafeterias; advocated for Meatless Mondays at all schools; convened a Winter Solstice Workshop; visited elder care residents at Clermont County Nursing Home in winter; initiated the Student Body Archive as an act; facilitated a yearlong clothing drive; picketed cars to turn off their engines at school dismissals; unwelcomed and protested a demeaning, crude, and overall exploitative circus; hosted two community conventions in 2007 and 2008; and

partnered with the Cincinnati Nature Center. Then, Young LEAF blossomed at the Milford Junior High School. Even today, Clermont’s youth are asking Clermont County Fair officials to install the positions of Vegan Queen and Vegan King on the fair’s royalty court in 2014 - what an awesome, exciting and appropriate endeavor which everyone should support wholeheartedly. Today the environment is being jeopardized by skeptical conjectures and apathy. Clermont County, the cities of Milford and Loveland, and surrounding townships have taken a proactive stance to combat this apathy and commence a large-scale recycling initiative. Volunteers are petitioning the EPA for action to remove the thousands of tons of toxic waste stagnating at Cecos, when the county’s “more direct communication” has not arrived. Residents have access to a myriad of community garden projects that facilitate collective produce. Many of Clermont’s finest citizens are also joining efforts for full global nuclear disarmament, eradication of all radioactive materialization, and securing a tough global climate treaty to cease anthropogenic climate change for us and future generations. I hope that higher energy standards, conservation techniques, replanting, animal freedom and more education and programming also come to this area.

tepping Stones’ first ever prom was a swirl of fancy dresses, wheelchairs and new friends as 38 volunteers from Clough United Methodist Church in Anderson Township opened prom season with a glittery gift. The volunteers brought dresses, make-up, suit coats, corsages, hair ribbons, music, a dessert buffet and a prom photographer to Stepping Stones’ Camp Allyn in Batavia. The prom was part of the Creative Wonders respite weekend for teens and adults with disabilities. “It was incredible. Many of our participants had never gone to a prom,” said Dottie Dotson, coordinator of Recreation and Leisure Services at Stepping Stones’ Camp Allyn Campus. Janet Stehlen of Milford organized the prom with the church’s mission group and youth group. “It was a huge party with everybody dancing and having a great time,” she said. “We wanted everybody to have a good time together and not worry

about their ability or disability.” The prom was part of Stepping Stones’ weekend respite program that provides overnight weekends of theme-based activities from September through May. Stepping Stones also offers summer day and overnight camps, year-round adult day activities, Saturday Clubs for children and young adults and an alternative education programs for students with severe autism. More than 1,000 volunteers participate in activities ranging from camp buddies to group volunteer projects. For summer camp volunteer opportunities, see the web site Stepping Stones is a United Way partner agency serving children and adults with disabilities at three program locations: Given Campus in Indian Hill, UCP Campus in Norwood and Camp Allyn Campus, which is owned by the Rotary Club of Cincinnati, in Batavia.

Make hot cross buns, hang one up

I may be jinxing myself, but I think we’ve finally transitioned into spring. The last few days have convinced me, and in our little patch of woods, I’m seeing true harbingers: watercress in our spring-fed pool and trilliums, bloodroot, anemones Rita and spring Heikenfeld beauties all RITA’S KITCHEN poking up through the leaves. The dandelions and wild onions are all over the place. Both nutritious wild edibles. Meanwhile, we’re gearing up for Easter. One of my favorite yeast buns to make is hot cross buns. Now these aren’t extremely sweet, like a sweet roll (they’re a bun, remember), but just sweet enough to really enjoy with a cup of tea or glass of milk. Legend has it that if you make yeasted hot cross buns for Good Friday and hang one up in the kitchen, you’ll have success with anything you make with yeast all year ‘round. That won’t be happening at my house! Let the kids help.

Granddaughter Eva loved making the cross decoration. You can also simply use the icing as a glaze over the whole bun.

Back in the old days yeast came in the form of moist little cakes and had to be refrigerated. Now we can buy dry yeast in the store. It comes in many forms, from regular yeast to rapid rise to bread machine yeast. All easy to use.


1 pkg. (1/4 oz.) active dry yeast, regular or rapid rise 1 tablespoon plus 1/2 cup sugar, divided 1 cup warm milk (110° -115°) 1/4 cup softened butter Couple dashes salt 1/2 to 1 cup raisins 1 large egg, room temperature 3-1/2 to 3-3/4 cups allpurpose flour Preheat oven to 375. In mixer bowl, dissolve yeast and 1 tablespoon sugar in warm milk. Let stand for 5 minutes. It will foam up. Add butter, raisins, egg, salt and remaining sugar; beat until smooth. On low speed, pour in enough flour to form soft dough - I used 3-1/2 cups. Turn onto very lightly floured surface (not too much flour or buns will be tough); knead until smooth like a baby’s bottom, about 5 minutes. I used the dough hook so avoided hand kneading and extra flour. Place in sprayed or buttered bowl, turning once to coat top. Bless

Is it fresh?

dough! Cover and let rise in warm place until doubled, 1 hour or more. Stick a finger in gently, if indentation remains, you’re good to go; if it springs back, it needs to raise more. Punch dough down. Divide into 12 portions. Shape into balls. Place in sprayed or buttered 13x9 pan. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 45 minutes. Bake 25-30 minutes or until golden. Mine were done at 25 minutes.


Whisk together: 2 cups confectioner’s sugar 1 tablespoon vanilla 4 tablespoons water or more if needed. Make a

cross shape on each bun.

Tip from Rita’s kitchen:

Raising in fridge: As an experiment, I divided dough in half and let half raise at room temperature and half in fridge covered overnight. The dough from the fridge took longer to raise, but both batches came out great.

To make sure your yeast can still leaven, add a little to some warm water with a pinch of sugar. It should foam up within minutes. If not, toss it. Yeast kept in the freezer stays fresh longer.

Can you help?

Yeasty flavor in breads: Lois B. has a friend who wants to know how to make the flavor of yeast more prominent in her baked goods. Using regular, not rapid rise may help. Any suggestions from bakers in our

Hawaiian roll clone

Leave out raisins and icing and you have a roll that to me tastes like store-bought Hawaiian rolls. The crust is not as soft, but the sweet flavor is there.

Community circle of friends? Applebee’s hot bacon dressing: Wanda R. has tried “to no avail” to make this. Do you have a similar recipe?

States investigating student loan complaints 3,800 student loan servicer complaints it’s received are against Sallie Mae. It says the most common complaints concern inaccurate payment processing and an inability to modify loans. One complaint on file with the Ohio Attorney General reads, “On the 18th of January, I ‘paid off’ one of the loans, but they have no record of it! Key Bank has repeatedly sent them verification, and they refuse to acknowledge that they ‘received the electronically sent payment’! I am beyond what to do!” Another complaint filed with the Ohio Attorney General reads, “Sallie Mae continues to change the way they have done business which changes the original agreement when the loan was made. Further investigation is needed into the Sallie Mae practices.”


A spokesperson for the Illinois Attorney General said, “We’re looking into the increasing reports of abusive servicing practices involving consumers who have taken on considerable student debt loans.” Congress created the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau in 2010 as part of the Dodd-Frank law in an effort to watch over banks and student loans. The law encourages state attorneys general to take more of an interest in complaints against student lenders. Sallie Mae is the nation’s largest student loan provider and had set aside $70 million to help resolve enforcement actions by the Department of Justice and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp.

A multi-state investigation is now underway into the practices of the student loan servicing firm SLM Corp., also known as Sallie Mae. This comes after numerous complaints have been filed with state atHoward Ain torneys general HEY HOWARD! around the country. Complaints are coming from people like Eric Wooddell of Martinsville, Ohio. “Sallie Mae is taking money specified for certain accounts (in this case the ones with higher interest rates) and posting the money how they wish (to lower interest loans),” Woodell wrote. Wooddell said he has recorded phone conversations with the company and has bank statements showing the problem. “Over $1,300 hasn’t even been posted to my account where I have bank records showing I paid the amount. They are blaming a system change while millions of students are being impacted and paying thousands more in interest payments,” he said. I’ve told Wooddell, as I’m telling everyone else with such problems, to file a complaint with their state attorney general. Ohio officials there say they are not permitted to say whether they are part of the multi-state investigation being led by the Illinois Attorney General. Ohio has received 57 complaints about Sallie Mae since 2012. Nationwide, the federal Consumer Financial Protection Bureau reports almost half the

Visit Bethel, quite a wonderful hometown George Rooks OLE FISHERMAN

Howdy folks, This article is different in that it is mostly about our hometown of Bethel. There are two hardware stores, Bishops and Village. You can find items there that the big stores don’t have. We needed some screws that

have threads on both ends for a project we are making. So I went to Bishops and told the feller what I needed. He went to the boxes and kept pulling till I saw the right size. I was amazed. They have plants, garden tools, tillers, lawn mowers,

all kinds of different plants, mulch, etc. If they don’t have the item they will try to get it. They also have repairs for pressure canners. The other one, Village Hardware, at the other end of Bethel, will have lumber and other

!'+/)0 *()1"&% ".,/- $# 83(3# $3-43--7#3*4,/%"!6(4)362 ,) 4711 +*099*0'&*5.99*

items. The folks that work there will greet you with a big smile and help you. They have seed taters, onion sets and on their sign I saw they have heirloom seeds, plus other items. The owner Luann will be glad if you stop and shop. There are gas stations, a grocery store, IGA, where you can get your supply of groceries and the store is clean and well organized. They have a special room for $1 items. They are so helpful. The deli will have fried chicken, which is my favorite, and of course other dishes in the food counter. We have plenty of restaurants to eat at too. There are banks to keep your money in and the folks that work there are so helpful. Especially for me, when I don’t understand the new technology. I have missed some businesses in our town, but you can find whatever you need by visiting the businesses, they would thank you for your business. As my friend always said, ‘I tell you folks;’ there is a feed mill in my town that has about everything you need for animal feed. They also have plants for the garden, honey bee supplies, all kinds of feeders for birds and animals, they also grind feed, have stray dog boxes, all kinds of items for your animals. Stop in and browse around the store or the feed mill, there are very few feed mills that grind feed. When you go in the feed mill you may hear

baby chicks chirp, or baby ducks, baby turkeys and at Easter they have baby rabbits I think, so stop and say hello to Susan and their other employees. There are two drugstores where you can get all kinds of supplies for the medicine cabinet, prescriptions to be filled. If you are interested in antiques stop at the Pickers Paradise. They have some of the items I have never seen, so stop and say hello to Gary and Gloria. Also there is the Pink Elephant which has furniture and antiques. There are automotive repair stores and a garage to repair your vehicle. Stop and say hello to Scott. The schools here in Bethel are No. 1. The students can get a good education in these schools. There is the U.S. Grant Vocational Career Center where a student can go and train for a career in the business world. Now if you want some excellent food visit the Sports Gallery. The students under the supervision of the Forcee Brothers do a great job. If you don’t get enough to eat that is your fault. So come to my town Bethel and shop there. The Bethel Lions Club was 70 years old on April 4. The club had a celebration that evening at the Bethel United Methodist Church Fellowship Hall. The Monroe Grange at Nicholsville will be 100 years old November 2015. The National Grange is

"-)0 2-((%/*&#+ "-)0 2-//02&01+ "-)0 -. $,!& (!&&0)' &- #-%+

147 years old this December. This is National Grange Month. The Bethel community is unique in that the churches of the town get together for Holy Week services. They begin April 13 at the Community Christian Church with Father Mike Leshney preaching; Monday, April 14, at Bethel Assembly of God, Pastor Ben Hurst preaching, Tuesday at Faith Chapel, with their church doing a drama, “It Is Finished,” Wednesday at Bethel Church of the Nazarene with Pastor Jeremiah Hembree preaching Thursday at the United Methodist Church with a drama and music with communion at the Lord’s Table. All of these will be at 7 p.m. then on Friday the service will be at noon at St. Mary’s Catholic Church with Pastor Dan Asche preaching; Sunday morning at 6:30 a.m. Sunrise Service will be at Northside Baptist Church with Pastor Scott Wade preaching. Then each church will have their services. The Bethel Baptist Church will have a breakfast after the sunrise service. You can choose the church you wish to attend on Easter. Now a short word about Chester. He is doing fine. Start your week by going to the church of your choice and praise the Good Lord. God bless all. More later. George Rooks is a retired park ranger.
