BECAUSE COMMUNITY MATTERS

Pierce Twp. rezones land near busy intersection By Lisa Wakeland lwakeland@communitypress.com

Pierce Township is making a push to expand its business district along Ohio Pike. Trustees unanimously approved combining business and residential zones into a new mixed-use planned unit development at the intersection of Ohio Pike with White Oak and Lewis roads.

West Clermont board member a mentor By Forrest Sellers fsellers@communitypress.com

Clermont County plans to sell its former water department property near that intersection to Pierce Township, a possibility that’s been discussed for years. “The critical component is the right of way needs to be preserved to allow for the possibility of other road improvements,” Township Administrator Tim Hershner said during a May 13 public hearing. “Existing zoning remains in

UNION TWP. — West Clermont Board of Education member Mark Merchant will be remembered for helping youth. This involvement extended from his involvement with the Boy Scouts to his time on the school Merchant board. Mr. Merchant died May 14 of complications from cancer. He was 65. “He always had a passion for helping youth,” said his wife, Grace. “He definitely served as a mentor.” Mr. Merchant was a retired self-employed contractor and was also a committee chairman with the Boy Scouts of America. An Army veteran, Mr. Merchant had been awarded a Soldier’s Medal for heroism. He was a founding board member of the West Clermont Education Foundation and had been a substitute teacher in the district. Mr. Merchant was elected to the school board in November and had served as vice president of the board. Board member Steve Waldmann said he got to know Mr. Merchant during a recent Ohio School Board Association conference. “I found him to be someone that was genuine and someone you could talk to to work through issues,” Waldmann said. “This is a loss to his family but to the district as well.” In addition to his wife, Mr. Merchant is survived by a son, Jordan; two brothers, Bruce and Todd; a sister, Barbara Perino, and a stepbrother, John Pritchard. A memorial service will be Saturday, May 31, at 2 p.m. at All Saints Lutheran Church, 445 Craig Road. Burial will be Sunday, June 1, at 1 p.m. at Hoverstock Cemetery in Zanesville, Indiana.

place, and the new zoning is not applied or enforced until the property owners sign off on it. It could take decades for properties to come under new zoning.” Plans for the site show a new road that would eventually extend across the water depart-

ment property to Appomattox Drive and another access road behind the Penn Station on Ohio Pike. The new road would eventually cut off access to Ohio Pike, See PIERCE, Page A2

West Clermont to offer summer school courses By Forrest Sellers fsellers@communitypress.com

The West Clermont Local School District will offer virtual lab courses this summer. The courses will be offered through a virtual lab at Glen Este High School. “It’s a good opportunity (for) the students to continue getting credits and stay on course toward getting their diplomas,” said Leslie Spangler, a virtual academy teacher at the school. Brian Wallace, virtual school coordinator, said the virtual lab Walker courses will be taken through an online program called Apex. “Each lesson covers all of the core curriculum,” he said, adding that the online program includes quizzes, unit tests and an exam the students must pass to get credit for the course. Courses will be offered in a variety of subject areas ranging from mathematics to science. The summer program, which is for grades nine through 12, is three weeks and will be from June 9 to June 27. Glen Este High School Principal Bob Walker said the virtual lab has a number of advantages. “You can cover more disci-

plines with fewer staff,” he said. “It’s cost effective.” The district, which has been cutting costs in recent years, had eliminated a number of programs. A summer school had not been offered for several years. “This helps credit-deficient students get back on the correct track increasing their chances of graduating,” said Walker. Virtual lab courses have been

offered throughout the school year, but this is the first time the district has incorporated them into a summer program. “I’m excited about it,” said Wallace, adding that he is anxious to see how many students take advantage of the program. The cost per course is $200. The courses will be offered at the high school. Interested students should contact their counselor or visit

(Ohio Pike) is eventually going to be a business,” she said. “It’s that way all the way down, and I think it will help the township.” Michael Valentine, who owns two houses on Ohio Pike, is more concerned about the township and county’s plans to extend the new access road east. “So much of what’s going on here could be alleviated with a traffic light,” he said. Valentine said his mother, who previously lived in one of the houses, had asked state officials for a traffic signal more than a decade ago, but her request was denied. “Nothing is making sense to me, but it is what it is,” Valentine said of the township plans. “If we’re sandwiched between the traffic, it will kill property values.” If the access road extended east, which Hershner said could take 10 to 15 years, Valentine said it would help to add curb cuts, so the handful of houses had access to their properties from Lewis Road and did not have to travel down Ohio Pike.

Teen stabbed over text messages

A Bethel teenager was arrested early May 12 and charged with stabbing another teen over threatening text messages involving a girl, New Richmond police said. Clayton Welch, 19, was booked into the Clermont County jail on a felonious assault charge and was being held without bond. According to police, Welch and Preston Graybill, 19, exchanged the messages over the weekend. Then, police say, Welch stabbed Graybill in the side at Riverview Apartments on Bethel New Richmond Road. Welch was taken into custody at his residence

shortly after the victim identified him as the assailant. Graybill was taken to University of Cincinnati Medical Center. His condition was not released. Police recovered the knife used in the attack.

May ‘Cooperative Extension Month’

Clermont County Commissioners designate May as Cooperative Extension Month in honor of Ohio State University Extension Clermont County. May marks 100 years of the United States’ Cooperative Extension Service. Congress passed the Smith-Lever Act establishing Extension, a unique educational partnership between the U.S. Department of Agriculture and land-grant universities, on May 8, 1914. The act created the Extension network, including OSU Extension, to bring university-based research and learning opportunities to the public, thanks to the cooperative support of county governments paired with university and federal funding. County Commissioners honored Clermont Extension May 12 during the Board of Commissioners Session in Batavia. Clermont Extension is in Owensville, housed at the Clermont County Fairgrounds. The office offers programming in four areas: agriculture and natural resources, community development; 4-H youth development; and family and consumer sciences. Extension programming is based

around the needs of the public. For more information, please contact 513-7327070 or visit clermont.osu.edu.

Clough Pike work continues

Cider Mill Drive is closed at Clough Pike beginning. Traffic is de-

toured onto Terrace Drive for approximately three weeks while work to reconstruct Clough Pike continues. Weather permitting, the work on Cider Mill Drive will be completed by Friday, June 6, and both lanes of traffic on Cider Mill Drive will reopen at that time. The work on Cider Mill Drive is part of 1.3-mile

widening and improvement project on Clough Pike between Mt. Carmel Tobasco Road and Gleneste-Withamsville Road. The project will add a third travel lane along Clough Pike, a new center turn lane, as well as a sidewalk along the north side of the road. Upgrades will be made to nearby traffic signals,

and drainage improvements will also be completed along the project corridor. Clermont County Engineer Pat Manger reiterated the importance of the Clough Pike work and its relationship to other improvement projects taking place throughout the county.

SUMMIT STUDENTS RAISE MONEY FOR

CLEAN WATER

“It’s a beautiful day to carry water, and a great day to celebrate our relationship with the world.” The Rev. Phil Seher, The Summit Country Day School chaplain, summed up the school’s “servicelearning” event, Hands Across the Water, in his opening statement. Students of all grades at The Summit spent the better part of their afternoon April 23 carrying water jugs around campus and the surrounding neighborhood. The activity was part of the school’s annual Hands Across the Water walkathon, a fundraiser that began five years ago as a Middle School service-learning project and spread to the rest of the school. Students learn that many people around the world do not have access to clean water. That lesson is applied literally at The Summit. Students brought in unopened water jugs, and carried them around Thurner Field, Williams Field and the Hyde Park neighborhood. The helps students develop empathy for millions of children globally who have to carry often-contaminated water home and to school daily, which can sometimes be as far as six kilometers. Sophomore Allison Haussler of Amberley Village said that carrying the water jugs around the Hyde Park neighborhood helped her understand a little bit of what children around the world have to do for water.

“It gave us a taste of what it feels like,” she said. Money raised during Hands Across the Water is donated to the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur Clean Water Fund. It is then used to buy Proctor and Gamble water-purifying packets for children at schools operated by the Sisters in Africa and the Southern Hemisphere. Total dollars raised this year is not yet available because donations are still being accepted, however, past amounts have made quite a dent. Last year, $56,000 was raised – enough to provide 56 villages with clean water for an entire year. John Pepper, former chairman and CEO of the board of Proctor & Gamble and honorary co-chair of the Underground Railroad Freedom Center, will speak and host a questionand-answer session with Upper School students on April 29 about the global water crisis. Lower School students learned about the global water crisis April 22, when Summit parent Christine Hoff-Pierre, a native of the African nation of Liberia, taught students about the history of her home country and the need for clean water there. After the presentation, Lower School teacher Ceil Johnson received an email from a parent, describing the “awesome” conversation she had with her daughter that evening and the thoughtful impression it left on her.

Summit Country Day School Montessori students (left to right) kindergartner Eva Ibez of Green Township, preschooler Sophia Brown of Anderson Township, kindergartners Charlie Ritch and Sam Hinton, both of Hyde Park, and kindergartner Ethan Cole of Montgomery didn't have to carry gallon water jugs like the older students during the annual Hands Across the Water walkathon April 23, but they carried bottles of water around the school's main circle. THANKS TO PHYLLIS SCHUELER

“As a person originally raised in Liberia, Mrs. Hoff-Pierre has firsthand knowledge of the dramatic implications of the lack of a clean water source on the health and lives of children,” said Lower School Director Helen Clark. Sophomore Sara Bissantz of Anderson Township said walking and raising money during Hands Across the Water was one way for Summit students to help people get the water they need to be healthy, but teaches them to appreciate what they have. “Clean water comes so easily here, and we don’t always think about how others can’t get it as easily,” she said. Senior Antonio Woods of Forest Park, far left, and junior Omar Khoury of Symmes Township, center, help fellow Upper School students load jugs of water into a truck at the end of The Summit Country Day School's annual Hands Across the Water walkathon April 23. Those water jugs were donated to Matthew 25: Ministries in Blue Ash. THANKS TO LEAH FIGHTMASTER

Simpson earns SBC player of year for New Richmond By Mark D. Motz

mmotz@communitypress.com

NEW RICHMOND — He still carries the awe of a little kid. New Richmond High School senior Levi Simpson who recently won Southern Buckeye Conference player of the year honors as a pitcher, catcher, shortstop and second baseman - said his favorite baseball memory was a 10game tournament in Cooperstown as a U12 player with the New Richmond Stingers. “We might have gone 1-9 on that trip or something,” he said. “Didn’t matter. It was Cooperstown. The Hall of Fame. It was amazing.” Lions head coach Brian Benzinger said the player of the year award was a fitting honor for an amazing high school career. “Levi is arguably the most complete player I’ve ever coached and arguably one of the best to ever come through New Richmond,” he said. “There have been better hitters come through and better pitchers have come through it’s a short list, but there are some - but I can’t think of anybody who has combined the two, plus the ability to play other positions the way Levi has.” “It’s almost a shame when he goes to college that he’ll probably have to specialize at one position. Utility player has kind of a negative connotation, but he is that in the best sense. You can put him just about anywhere on the field and he’ll be one of the best there.” Simpson said will play at Marietta College next year. The Pioneers graduate two catchers after this season and have indicated Simpson might find a home behind the plate. Fine by him. “Control on the mound is one thing, making sure you’re throwing strikes,” he said. “Control behind the plate is being there for your pitcher and for your team.” Benzinger said Simpson who also quarterbacked the

Senior catcher Levi Simpson hands New Richmond head baseball coach Brian Benzinger the game ball for his 300th career win after a 7-0 victory against Norwood May 15. The milestone victory improved New Richmond to 23-5, the third straight year the Lions have won at least 23 games. This is the 10th 20-win season for Benzinger in his 15 seasons as head coach. THANKS TO NEW RICHMOND HIGH SCHOOL

UNION TWP. — The baseball team at Glen Este High School had a unique season as they opened and closed with the same school. Unfortunately, the games didn’t feature the same result. On March 31, the Little Miami Panthers traveled to Union Township and were defeated 5-3 by a hungry Trojan squad hoping to making a spring tournament run. Just 43 days later, that same team came back and ended Glen Este’s season with an 8-6 nine-inning victory in the Division I sectional. At batting practice the day before, Glen Este coach Mike Hatfield had been speaking about parity. A day later, after jumping out to an early lead, he witnessed it. The loss ended Glen Este’s season at 18-9. Along the way, the Trojans defeated Loveland, Anderson and St. Xavier. Though the tournament defeat stings, all signs point to another strong team in 2015.

BENZINGER GETS 300TH CAREER WIN New Richmond head coach Brian Benzinger earned his 300th career win as Lions head coach with a 7-0 victory over Norwood May 15. It marks the third-straight year New Richmond tallied at least 23 wins and came as part of Benzinger’s 10th 20-win season in 15 years as head coach. “Having good players sure makes you look good as a coach,” Benzinger said prior to win No. 299 over Taft. “I’ve had a lot of good players.” The milestone victory propelled New Richmond to the Division II sectional finals scheduled for 5 p.m. Thursday, May 22, at Anderson High School. The Lions will face either Batavia or Goshen for a chance to reach the district title game set for May 24 at Mason.

“We’re junior-dominated with 12 on the roster,” Hatfield said. “That’s only going to benefit us.” Junior A.J. Sweatland was among league leaders in earned run average, junior Austin Feltner in wins and juniors Peyton Burdick and Evan Moores in strikeouts. Junior Zach Jones and sophomore Andrew McClelland were also innings-eaters. “We’ve benefited from strong starting pitching and much improved interior defense,” Hatfield said. “The league that we’re in is exceptional if you look at the standings. Anderson, Milford and Loveland are all great teams.” While strikeouts are nice, Hatfield’s “hammers” often relied on ground balls in keeping their pitch counts down. He’s cautiously optimistic about his staff for next spring, knowing other cupboards aren’t necessarily bare. “There’s a lot of good pitchers in the league that are underclassmen,” Hatfield said. The biggest loss for Glen Este will be senior Tyler Burdick, who now heads to Morehead State for football and maybe some baseball. The four-year starter led the Eastern Cincinnati Conference in runs batted in with 35, was second in homers with 6 and third in average at .436. With a new found ability to drive the ball, Hatfield thinks he has a future in college baseball. After overcoming a line drive and the ensuing picture that made the Twitter rounds, Peyton Burdick will be back for See GLEN ESTE, Page A7

Rocket baseball takes family approach to success By Mark D. Motz mmotz@communitypress.com

MT. WASHINGTON — Sister Sledge sang about it. The Pittsburgh Pirates adopted it. The McNicholas High School baseball team lives it now. Some 35 years after Willie Stargell and Pirates made “We Are Family” a baseball anthem, the McNick team is chock full of second-generation Rockets, many of whose fathers once played with head coach John Christmann. Christmann - a 1985 McNick grad - is a second generation Rocket himself; his mom is longtime school nurse Mary Anne Christmann, class of 1956. He enjoys the family atmosphere on his team. “It means a lot to me as a coach,” he said. “It’s easier to talk to the parents when they al-

ready know me, when they know what I’m about. It’s always good to have that kind of support from your baseball families.” Among the players, sophomore Ryan Byrne’s dad Bobby Byrne was Christmann’s classmate and teammate in baseball and football. Likewise sophomore pitcher Sam Browning’s dad is Mike Browning (’86). Sophomore pitcher Chris Clark is the son of 1984 grads Mike Clark and the former Linda Dulle. Senior Will Mehring, junior Logan Jacobs and sophomore Will Vogelgesang also have McNick grads for parents. (Full disclosure: Jacobs’ father Mike (McNick ‘87) was a teammate of your humble scribe on some of the worst District 5 Knothole teams ever assembled in the 1970s. “He doesn’t get (his talent) from his old man,” the elder

Jacobs said of his son earlier in the spring.) All have played key roles for the 2014 McNick team. Byrne is the everyday catcher. Browning leads the squad and is second in the Greater Catholic League Coed with an 0.86 earned-run average. Clark has11strikeouts in eight innings of relief work while picking up a pair of saves. Mehring hits .375 and is tied for the team lead with 16 runs batted in. Vogelgesang hits .344 and owns a team-best12 stolen bases. Jacobs has become a reliable clutch hitter and aggressive base runner. He drove in the tying run when the Rockets trailed Hughes 1-0 in the fourth inning during the opening round of the Division II sectional tournament May 13. He doubled in See MCNICK, Page A7

hit line drives,” Jacobs said. “Only good things can happen when you hit line drives.” Jacobs started playing ball at age 6 and hit his first legitimate overthe-fence home run as a sixth grader at Tealtown Park. The Union Township resident said he’s always loved the game.

“I can’t even describe it,” he said. “It’s just fun. It’s a good place to escape. You don’t have to worry about any drama, just go out and play and have fun. I like to take opportunities (on the bases) when they’re there. I like to make those extra plays to get my teammates fired up.”

Murphy and Jake Neeley are also juniors that contributed and will be vying for leadership roles on next year’s team. Mays and Murphy hit .359; Neeley .349 and pitcher/third baseman Sweatland .333. Junior outfielder Dylan Chafin was at .326. Murphy came in from Lakota West and took

over as the team’s leadoff hitter. “He does an outstanding job at shortstop,” Hatfield said. “Him and Jake Neeley have solidified our defense up the middle.” The Trojans now move on to their various summer teams until organized work begins again in nine months.

Lions to a 9-1 football season in the fall - has always been a team-first player. “We knew he was special when he was a freshman, that’s why he’s been a four-year varsity starter for us,” he said. “We can play him about anywhere and he’ll be as good as anyone in the league. It was fitting that he was player of the year this year, but it’s the day-in and-day-out Levi that people don’t get to fully appreciate unless they see him every day.” The Lions finished the regular season 21-5, won its third straight SBC title

and beat Taft 6-2 in the opening round of the Division II sectional tournament May 13. “We knew our pitching was going to be strong,” Benzinger said. “But usually when you say that in high school baseball you’re talking about a guy who strikes out 10, 12 batters. Levi is a good example. He’s not overpowering. None of our guys are; they’re averaging about four strikeouts a game. “Our team defense has been the key. We’ve held our opponents under two runs in all but two or three games with just four strikeouts a game. They make every play they’re supposed to make and there have been moments when they make the out-

standing plays to save us some runs.” Simpson agreed. “We trust our defense and that has helped us a ton this year,” he said. “We just throw strikes and let the other teams hit it. We know they’re fine behind us. When we go up on the mound, we go with a lot of confidence.” This Lions were a run away from reaching the regional tournament last season. Simpson said they could get there this year if they play to their potential. “Honestly I feel like this will be one of our best chances,” he said. “I have absolute utter faith. They’re going to have to beat us. We’re not going to give anyone a game.”

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Prayers go up blessings come down

On Thursday, May 1, we met on the courthouse steps in downtown Batavia to pray for our nation. God blessed us with dry skies after days of rain. As Ole Glory waved in the wind, patriotic hymns echoed thru the deserted streets. We thank our soloists, John Hale, Jennifer Thomas, Petra Bradley, Todd and Jenny Kritzwiser. A special thanks to our ‘sound man’ Pastor John Martin. Emcee Bob Proud introduced the elected officials who did Bible readings: Sheriff Tim Rodenberg, Tim Rudd, State Rep. Doug Green. Prayers went up for our country, our military, our county, our community and our children. We honored our vets and ‘hometown heroes’ with applause and standing ovation as we thanked them for their service. Thanks to the area pastors who prayed for them. Before the noon service a bountiful brunch was served by the Eastgate Community Church for our elected officials, area pastors, their guests, vets from their church. In closing prayers were asked for Kevin Long, who has been deployed for his first tour of duty in Afghanistan. While “Taps” played, not only did it echo thru the streets, but in our hearts as we remembered the high price paid for freedom here in the “land of the free and home of the brave.”

THE OTHER MOTHERS

I know by the time you read this, Mother’s Day will be long gone, and I also realize that I realize that not everyone has had the privilege of a loving home, a godly home. We want to honor those who have ladies who have given their all, their life, to raising their children, grandchildren, and in some cases, they have been the care-givers of other people’s children. That’s who we want to talk about today, “The Other Mothers.” There is no greater privilege and responsibility bestowed by God upon anyone than that of being a wife and a mother. No one has a more profound and enduring influence upon those around her in the home either negatively or positively, whether she realizes it or not, than that of the “role” of the mother.

A man by the name of William Ross Wallace gave the most vivid description of the importance of a godly mother when Ben Hurst he wrote: “The COMMUNITY PRESS hand that rocks GUEST COLUMNIST the cradle is the hand that rules the world.” But today the world has tried to down play the importance of the role of mother and just look at the devastating results. While it is important to give our children a secular education, nothing can compare to the love and nurturing of a godly mother’s influence in the home…nothing. In the beginning chapters of Exodus a new king came into power in Egypt, and the Bible

says that he knew not Joseph, and he caused the servitude of the Israelite to be severe as the Israelites began to out-number the Egyptians, causing great fear to come upon the king. Consequently, the new king decides to kill all the male children, but the love and cleverness of Moses’ mother (God’s intervention), saved Moses, who went on to be one of the greatest men in the Bible. This story tells how the daughter of Pharaoh found Moses in the river, and had compassion on him, and took the baby home and raised him as her own. Now she was “not” the birth mother, but she nurtured him and invested her life into caring for him. In addition, God in His sovereignty even allowed Moses’ mother to come and be nurse to her own child, and was paid for her services.

Don’t tell me God doesn’t bless those who are obedient. However, many women wanted to have children, but could not. Instead, these women invested their love and life into someone else’s children. Then there are the “other mothers” who have already raised her own children, yet because of their great love have become the “other mother” for many. Some folk have become foster parents, and some have adopted children into their family...loved them as their own, as God has done to us. Adoption, what a great illustration of God’s love. I hope you had a happy Mother’s Day. Ben Hurst is the pastor @ Northside Baptist Church in Bethel.

Volunteer with Clermont Senior Services

Each year in April, the nation celebrates National Volunteer Week as a way of acknowledging and thanking those people who do extraordinary things through service to others. This recognition was established in 1974 and focuses on the impact and power of volunteerism as a fundamental aspect of civic engagement and one of the most significant factors in what is great about America. The impact of volunteerism is far-reaching. For Clermont Senior Services, a not-for-profit organization, it means that we are able to serve many more people with many more services. For the citizens of this community who responsibly and honorably support the levy that provides for services for seniors in Clermont County, it is a way that this organization can leverage the funds of taxpayers through those who give so generously of their time,

energy and talent. In 2013, 306 volunteers contributed 23,693 hours of their time to support the services ClerCindy Jenkins mont Senior Gramke COMMUNITY PRESS Services provides. I look at GUEST COLUMNIST the number of individual volunteers and the number of hours of service they provided, and I’m absolutely amazed. Better yet, the good news, and I’m always looking for the good news, is that this was actually an increase over the 22,118 hours provided in 2012. Actually, one of the very first ways I was introduced to Clermont Senior Services was because of the volunteer programs. When my daughter, Staci, was about 2 years old, my mother began taking her when

she delivered meals-on-wheels in the Amelia area. In fact, they “worked” as volunteers more than a year before I came to “real” work for the agency in 1983. The life lessons in caring and compassion that Staci gained through that experience with my mom played a tremendous role in making her the amazing woman she is today. And, it is also the reason that many young mothers and fathers volunteer. They want to expose their children to a way of giving back and doing good for others. I was truly blessed that my mother made this same commitment with my daughter. When you equate those hours into real dollar cost, it clearly demonstrates the value that volunteers provide to services like meals-on-wheels, shopping, home repair, and special events, projects and activities provided right here in Clermont County. In the State of Ohio, the estimated

National Deed Service, Registered Property Services and other companies are sending residents letters, offering to get them certified copies of their property deeds. In most cases, a property owner already has a copy of their deed, provided at closing when they purchased their property. The deed is a public record and is available at the Recorder’s Office. These companies are privately held companies, not attached to any government agency.

Rita shares salads for picnic season We usually start Memorial Day out with my family, going to Mass at St. Philomena church in Clermont County. The church is a beautiful small church, built in the 1830s. The Mass is held outdoors, weather permitting. Rita AfterHeikenfeld wards, RITA’S KITCHEN there’s a gun salute to the fallen veterans and the parishioners serve everyone breakfast. We visit my parents’ graves there and put vases of fresh flowers on them. The grandkids help me plant sprigs of my heirloom mint around the graves, as well. It’s a meaningful tradition. I know many of you celebrate Memorial Day this way, whether remembering a fallen veteran, family or friends. Memorial Day is the official day for picnic season, too, and these recipes are some of my all time favorites.

Sandy’s broccoli cauliflower salad with tangy yogurt dressing. My neighbor, Sandy

Shelton, brought a dish of this over. Oh my gosh, it was so good. It’s a yummy salad with the tanginess of the dressing offset by the sweetness of the grapes. Wouldn’t this be a nice take-along for a Memorial Day picnic? Now if you want my traditional buffet broccoli salad with a Marzetti like dressing, check out my website abouteating.com. It’s a keeper, too.

Salad:

6-8 slices bacon, cooked and diced 1/2 head each: cauliflower and broccoli, cut into small florets 2 cups seedless red grapes, halved, or more to taste - I used more 1/3 cup diced red onion, or more to taste 1/2 cup chopped pecans, or more to taste 1 small English cucumber, diced (you may not need all) Shredded cheddar cheese.

Dressing:

If your cauliflower and broccoli are real large, double the dressing - you may not need all of it but it’s good on slaw, too. Whisk together: 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt 1/2 cup real mayon-

Rita Heikenfeld's broccoli cauliflower salad is picnic perfect. THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD

naise 1/3 cup red wine vinegar 1 tablespoon sugar 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme Salt and pepper to taste Pour dressing over salad ingredients and enjoy.

Corn bread salad A really weird name, I admit, but one that’s requested by my readers a lot this time of year. Don’t be put off by the long list of ingredients. It’s easy to make. Oh, and did I mention, most folks come back for seconds - it’s that good. 1 package 8-1/2 ounces corn bread/muffin

mix; one can, four ounces chopped green chilies, undrained - mild or spicy; one teaspoon cumin; 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano; one cup each: mayonnaise and sour cream; one envelope ranch salad dressing mix; two cans, 15 ounces each Great Northern beans, drained or a combo of your favorite; three cups corn; three

MWPC mobile food pantry serves local hunger needs On Friday, April 25, the Mount Washington Presbyterian Church hosted a “Mobile Food Pantry” that distributed 10,000 pounds of food to 148 families in need. Church officials estimate that the benefit will reach more than 500 individuals. Clients of the SEM and Batavia Food Pantries are invited by letter to share in this event, which happens

four times a year. More than 40 MWPC volunteers worked all morning setting up 15 tables; unpacking pallets of canned goods, cereal, onions, potatoes, apples, meat, peanut butter, pasta, and bread; assisting clients with selecting items and then loading the groceries into their cars. Some volunteers heard from clients about the

challenges they are facing--losses from recent tornadoes in Moscow; physical disabilities from military service, occupational injuries, and motor vehicle accidents; lingering deficits from surgery, strokes, and other health crises; and loneliness from the breakdown of family relationships. Several spoke of their appreciation for the food, but also for meeting some

people who through their church bring a word of hope and blessing into their lives. This event is one of many initiatives this church and many others in Mt. Washington, Anderson Township and western Clermont County have undertaken for several decades through the Southeastern Ecumenical Ministry. With the recent cuts in government food

Mt. Washington Presbyterian Church volunteer David Martin loads a client’s vehicle with food donated from the Mobile Food Pantry. PROVIDED

programs, despite increasing needs, leaders at MWPC and SEM have

been evaluating all these efforts and considering how best to respond.

The Batavia Theatre Project, a new professional theater in Batavia, is hosting auditions for their summer season Friday, May 23, and Saturday, May 24.

Potential actors of all ages should expect to do cold readings from a Shakespearian play as well as at least one modern play. Actors should have a Shakespearian monologue or poem prepared to demonstrate a grasp of the language. Memorized monologues are preferred, but they may be read. Performers may be asked to sing a few bars of music a capella, and those with musical ability are encouraged to bring their instruments. “We are very excited to be bringing this opportunity to Batavia and Clermont County,” Theater President Adam Haskell said. “We are looking for-

Busy week: clogged gutters, sweet rhubarb Howdy folks; Last week we needed to clean the gutters of the house. We have a big maple tree, close to the house, so the seeds had filled the eve trough. When it rained last week the water ran over the sides of the gutter. The hole where the drain pipe is, was blocked up. When I get on the ladder, Ruth Ann is holding it for me, so I got them cleaned. Our rhubarb is some of the best we have ever had, so Ruth Ann asked if I would pull some, so she and I went and pulled some. She made a pie and took it to the auction 360 for the Grange bake sale, and Bill bought it. He said that was the best pie, and I think he would maybe like another one. Now Chester has a plan. Each morning he starts meowing so we let him outside, for a while, he doesn’t come in when we call him. If I get the lawnmower out, he will make a bee line to the house. That is his protection, so when the neighbor lady starts to mow, here he comes. Ruth Ann likes to crochet on an afghan, so the spool of yarn is laying on the couch or floor. Well, Chester likes to grab the yarn and run with it. The other evening he ran into the next room. Ruth Ann said, to me, “Go get it,” so while I was laughing I caught Chester, and he looked at me like ‘What Is Wrong!” The other morning we weighed him and he weighs eight pounds, he will be a big cat, when we are away and we come home, he is so excited, he runs through the house. We like to sleep a little later sometimes, but each morning Chester wants his breakfast, early, then starts begging to go outside. It is amazing how they train us. We had a meeting at the Owensville Historical Society last week, then went to the nursing home

to see my brother, Herb. He has been in the home since our sister in law, Inez, had a George stroke and Rooks then OLE FISHERMAN passed away. We sure miss the company and fine meals she prepared. We loved her dearly. Now today, we go to the Senior Citizens, over at the Lodge, at the Senior Center, on James Sauls Drive, and talk for a while to the folks. We enjoy the time we spend with them and the stories they tell me about their animals. Some have parrots that talk, that is interesting. There are some that don’t want Ruth Ann and me to leave, I always talk to most of them and always go around and shake each hand. This day we go they seem to really enjoy the stories, I tell and try to ask questions of them, on how it was when they were young, and what they did for play. Some of the stories are so interesting, it makes you realize how a person can drum up activites to entertain themselves, back in the early years, of their lives. We were working in the garden the other day, and when we were coming in to eat the noon meal, I said for Ruth Ann to come out on the porch, to see a big black snake that was almost three feet long. It was sure pretty and clean, so I encouraged it to go on over to the tree and get away from the porch. It got close to a patch of flowers and went into hide. They are God’s Creatures, so we don’t harm them, we noticed last fall, we had a snake in our carpenter shop, we have had one in a few years ago, too. The garden is doing good, we have tomato

plants, cucumbers, squash, lettuce, (three kinds), potatoes, carrots, peppers, spinach, broccoli, peas and cabbage. The asparagus is starting to do good. The strawberries are blooming good, we hope we can keep the wild turkeys from flying in and eating the berries, like they did last year. Now on Wednesday, May 21, the Clermont Chapter of the PERI will meet at 11:30 a.m. with a brown bag lunch and a guest speaker from the Clermont County Board of Elections.

Nearly a hundred people from 13 different states will gather at Heritage May 16-18 to take workshops, hear speakers, worship together and enjoy home-cooked meals from Heritage’s recently expanded and renovated kitchen.

Universalism is a historic faith that is based on the heretical notion that God’s love is given equally and unconditionally to all (”universal salvation”). In 1961, two American denominations merged to form the Unitarian Universalist Association. Heritage UU Church was originally founded in 1827 as the First Universalist Society of Cincinnati.

After prom has become a tradition for many Clermont County schools.
