West Clermont freezes teachers’ pay

By Forrest Sellers

UNION TWP. — Teachers in the West Clermont Local School District will receive no salary increases for the 20132014 school year. A contract with the teachers’ union, the West Clermont Education Association, was recently approved and Superintendent Keith Kline said as part of the contract a “complete base and step freeze” on teacher salaries for the 2013-

2014 school year will be implemented. Additionally, employees will now pay 16 percent for health care and dental coverage. Kline Joan Lewis, president of the West Clermont Education Association, said a step freeze and higher insurance premiums were disappointing, but understandable.

“We understand the severity of the budget, and we tried to work within it,” she said. “If the state funding model changes maybe we can return


step raises.” Step raises are pay increases that teachers get automatically as they gain years of experience. Teacher evaluations will

also now follow recent statemandated guidelines. “This is a huge step in getting the district on track,” said Kline during the August school board meeting. “I appreciate the teachers stepping up to help with finances.” The district has a five-year 5.8-mill additional tax-hike proposal on the upcoming November ballot. Three previous 10-year additional tax-hike proposals for 7.9 mills were defeated by vot-

ers in November 2012, November 2011 and May 2011. A continuing substitute tax proposal for 6.91 mills was approved by voters in May 2009. Board President Doug Young said the district has been in discussions with the association for the past year. “We appreciate the support from the teacher’s union,” he said. Administrators will continue to be on a base and step freeze that was implemented during the 2012-2013 school year.

Batavia to revamp downtown area By Lisa Wakeland

Downtown Batavia will have a new look next summer. The village is ready to start a major makeover for Main Street, from Fifth Street to the bridge and revamp parts of Fourth and Second streets. “We have an opportunity right now to sharply enhance the downtown area,” said Village Administrator Dennis Nichols. “We believe with this (project) we’ll have both a more effective road and a lot more attractive downtown.” Construction is expected to begin soon and wrap up next June. On Main Street, the roadway will be reduced from four travel

lanes to two travel lanes with a center turn lane dotted with landscaped islands. Parking will remain on both sides of the street, and there will be more streetlights along the stretch. “The sidewalks in downtown Batavia are fairly narrow and they constrain what stores can do,” Nichols said. This project widens the sidewalks along Main Street and adds street trees. Also, the utility lines will be either buried or pulled back, Nichols said, so there will be no overhead wires. On North Fourth Street, between Main and Wood streets, and on South Second Street, between Main and Broadway streets, the roads will be rebuilt and include new curbs, gutters and storm water improvements. Nichols said the pavement on

both those streets is severely deteriorated and has not been resurfaced in 30 years. Resident Lexie Creager said the repaving is definitely needed, and overall project will be a good thing. “Anything would be better than nothing,” she said. Trisha Brasfield, who owns Batavia Floral Creations and Gifts, said she is excited for the work to get started. “I think it’s going to be a positive thing for Batavia, and it’s a great place to start,” she said of the plans. Brasfield said she is somewhat worried construction will affect her store’s walk-in traffic, but a good portion of her business comes from phone or See ROAD, Page A2

BATAVIA — The Clermont County Department of Job and Family Services wants to pay foster care providers more to make Clermont County more appealing in the region. Tim Dick, deputy director of Job and Family Services, recently told Clermont County commissioners that the county hasn’t changed its rates since 2010, and with increased numbers of children being removed from their biological families the county needs to offer more incentives to keep them in the county. “It’s very difficult whenever you go out to the home where this abuse occurred at,” Dick said. “And we know that we’re going to be driving them (11/2), two, and, sometimes, 4 1/2 hours away ... far away from the community – far away from what they know.” The county currently has 344 children in its foster care system, Dick said, and about 40 percent of the cases were removed for drug-related reasons. The department’s proposal is to increase the daily pay for care providers $5 for children up to 5 years old, and $10 for 6to 18-year-old youths in foster homes. Gas mileage reimburse-

ment would remain at 40 cents, but reimbursement for day care expenses would increase to $125 a week from $100. The county currently pays about $65 a day for network service providers – foster care providers outside the county – and $19 a day for children in Clermont County foster homes, Dick said. “Initially this will have a financial impact on us,” Dick said. “But as we get more foster homes and move more children into the agency foster homes that’s when the cost savings will come into effect.” “There is a cost savings to the county, but it’s more beneficial to the kid,” said Bob Proud, commissioner. “So that makes it a winwin.”

Amelia road paving project to begin soon By Keith BieryGolick

AMELIA — Pink chalk markings cover Amelia’s roads, but not from a child’s drawings – it’s something much less pleasant than that. “Very soon road repaving will start,” said Derrick Campbell, village council member. Officials don’t know the specific start date, but Campbell said he guessed it would be sometime this month. “They’re (John R. Jurgensen Company) supposed to inform us before it starts,” he said. The company came out recently and repaired some bad parts of the road in preparation

for the repaving, said Mayor Todd Hart. Repaving will be conducted on Oak Campbell Street, Jenny Lind Road, Chapel Road, Maple Street and part of Huntsman Trace. Officials would like to complete additional paving on Huntsman Trace because the total cost for the project came in lower than expected, Hart said. Council originally appropriated $73,500 for road repaving, but the project ended up costing between $65,000 and $67,000, Hart said.

“We have to met with Jurgensen to find out what it would cost because we have no Hart idea what they would charge (for additional work),” he said. “We’ll just leave it where it is now until we talk to them.” A new turn signal light was recently installed in the Chapel Road and Oak Street intersection. When the light went up it only took five minutes for someone to call the mayor’s office to tell him they loved it, Hart said. Although the light has

been a success, traffic around it will be congested for a few days when the road paving starts. “We have to notify (Capital Electric) when they do grinding and repaving because they have to cut those loops for the lights,” Hart said. That means the light on Chapel Road and Oak Street will flash yellow while work is being done in the area. Officials are considering placing a police officer out there to help control traffic, Hart said. “We don’t have those orange barrels, we have these loops,” he joked. “We ask the general public to bear with us, we just have to put up with that.”

Road repaving is set to begin in Amelia soon. Repaving will be conducted on Oak Street, Jenny Lind Road, Chapel Road, Maple Street and part of Huntsman Trace.FILE ART

get,” said Lyle Bloom, director of utilities in the Clermont County Water Resources Department. Hilvert & Pope bid more than $147,000 for the project and Glenwood more than $117,000. Although there are ways to accept bids exceeding estimates by more than 10 percent, Bloom said he had never seen a bid outside the threshold accepted. “It’s in the code that if it’s above the engineer’s estimate then we have to make special procedure – either reject it or do other things,” said Ed Humphrey, Clermont County Commissioner. No timetable is set for the county to ask for another round of bids for the project.


Commissioners also vacated a small tract of land in Union Township. A 64.94-foot parcel at the end of White Street just off Mt. Carmel Tobasco Road near an I-275 exit ramp in the township that separated two portions of Dreamscapes Nurseries. Dean Goering, owner of the nursery, said the land will help his business by making it easier for customers to turn around and give him more space to display trees. “I will be able to make one gate across the road instead of two on opposite sides of the road,” Goering said. “It has been a long process for me, but Union Township and Clermont County have been immensely helpful in the

process.” Goering opened his nursery in 1999 and it has grown from a 40-tree display to having more than 300. “If there is no public purpose for property and someone petitions us to vacate it we will,” Humphrey said. “Vacating the property also reduces maintenance required by Union Township and there is no cost to the county.” Goering also plans to go the Union Township officials in hopes of being able to expand his parking lot.

Temporary sign OK’d for soccer field By Forrest Sellers

BATAVIA TWP. — Trustees will allow signage at a local soccer field, but it can’t be permanent. During a special board meeting last month, the Batavia Township Trustees considered a request by the Amelia Soccer Club to place a sign with its name on the soccer field by the community center. Township Administrator Rex Parsons said a sign can be placed on the field, but it has to be temporary. Trustees had concerns about permanent signage being placed at that location. “We are afraid it implies they own the property and sends the wrong message to the communi-

ty,” said Trustee Bill Dowdney. Likewise, Trustee James Sauls Jr. also questioned the exclusivity implied by permanent signage. Robert Hall, president of the Amelia Soccer Club, said the club is “100 percent fine” with the decision. “We’re very fortunate to have the support of the Batavia Township trustees to use their fields,” said Hall. Hall said the purpose of the sign is twofold. In addition to the club’s name, the sign also has specific rules people must follow when using the field. For example no pets, no smoking, etc. Additionally, the sign provides a point of contact

if an organization wants to use the field during soccer season. Although the soccer club has use of the fields during the fall and spring, Hall said the club will try and accommodate an organization that wants to use the field if possible. During the meeting, trustees also considered a request by UC Clermont to add brickwork to the dugouts at Brian Wilson field, which is also by the community center. The project would involve installing 4,500 bricks at the site. Trustees were OK with the design plan, but said the project would have to be paid for by the university. Parsons said the project could begin in the fall.

“It’s a lot of money to spend,” he said. “I don’t see any way this is going to bring more revenue or businesses to town.” To pay for the project – engineering, construction and landscaping – Batavia received a $985,000 state grant and a $1.3 million grant from Ohio, Nichols said. They also issued $3 million in bonds that will be paid off during the next 20 years.

“We are doing renovation and maintenance that, of necessity, has been neglected for 50 years,” he said. “There have not been many major capital improvements since the 1960s.” Nichols said the project should help with other economic development initiatives in the village like attracting specialty shops and promoting open office space.

Amelia is eyeing city status By Keith BieryGolick

AMELIA — Amelia is one of the villages in Ohio with a population closest to becoming a city. Villages with populations exceeding 5,000 at any federal census automatically become cities, according to the Ohio Revised Code. Villages also can become cities if they have 5,000 registered voters during a general election. Only three other Ohio


villages are closer to that population threshold than Amelia, according to the 2010 U.S. Census Bu-

reau. » Carlisle, located in Warren and Montgomery counties, was a city, but its population dipped to 4,915 during the last census. » Lexington, located

north near Mansfield, had a population of 4,822 at the last census. » Wellington, loDickerson cated even further north than Lexington, claimed 4,802 people in the 2010 census - one more than Amelia. While Carlisle, Lexington and Wellington have a greater population, Amelia’s population

grew more since the 2000 census. » Lexington’s population increased about 13 Hart percent. » Wellington’s population increased about 6 percent. » Carlisle’s population decreased about 4 percent. » Amelia’s population increased about 42 per-

cent - from 2,752 to 4,801. Amelia council recently passed a motion to form a Krafka committee to discuss what they need to do to prepare to become a city. “I want to look at accelerating the process if its good for the village,” said Derrick Campbell, council member, who made the motion. The committee will be made up of three council members - Katie Krafka, Chris Dickerson and Campbell. “I think it’s smart and proactive,” Krafka said. “It’s what we need to do.” Village Mayor Todd

Hart, who proclaimed the opening of the Kroger Marketplace on 262 W. Main St. signaled Amelia’s intention to become a city, said he would like to be an unofficial member of the committee. “It’s important,” Hart said. “We need to find out what we need to do.” The village would have became a city three years ago if it weren’t for a number of foreclosures related to the struggling economy, Campbell said. Hart said the committee should consider drafting a different charter before the village’s population reaches 5,000 people. “That way you can instill a strong council and mayor instead of having an administrator run the village,” he said.

BRIEFLY Special meeting

The Pierce Township Board of Trustees will conduct a special meeting at 6 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 12, to discuss the potential creation of a Community Investment Corporation. Law Director Thomas Keating is expected to give a presentation on these nonprofit corporations, which, if approved, could buy and sell land on behalf of the township. The meeting is in the township administration building, 950 Locust Corner Road.

Man killed on Pond Run Road

A New Richmond man died Sept. 7 after driving his car off Pond Run Road in Pierce Township. John Neville, 19, died after his car went off the road and hit a tree about 11:20 p.m. The Ohio State Highway Patrol is investigating.

Fatal bike crash

Police have identified 7-year-old Evan Geer, of Batavia, as the boy who

died in a bicycle crash with a vehicle Aug. 31 in Batavia. Police say Geer died from injuries sustained when he struck by a 2002 Jeep Wrangler driven by Melissa Maloney, 43, of Batavia. The initial investigation shows that the boy entered the intersection of Fifth and Wood streets in Batavia and struck the vehicle driven by Maloney. The boy was riding west on Wood Street. He was transported to Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center via helicopter and later pronounced dead. None of the occupants of the automobile was injured. The crash occurred at 12:38 p.m., and the incident remains under investigation by the Batavia Post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol.

Amelia’s multi-talented Terry heads to NKU By Scott Springer

Bulldogs honor 40 years since rebirth By Mark D. Motz

BATAVIA — Turns out three times was a charm at Batavia High School. Twice in its history – both in the 1920s and again in the 1950s - the school fielded football teams for a few seasons. Then in 1973, after a gridiron absence of 15 years, a group of student athletes founded the third edition of Bulldog football under coach Bo Chamberlain. That time it stuck. To celebrate the 40th anniversary of its resurrection, Batavia hosted an event for players from that first team before the 2013 Bulldogs home football opener Sept. 6 against Mariemont. “History is important to us,” said Batavia athletic director Ben Stewart. “We want to recognize the guys who set the path for us. It’s hard because one night doesn’t do it justice. “Having our kids today come through and meet these guys, that was nice. I played football here myself, so this means a lot to me to be able to thank these guys. “High school sports stick with you. They’re important. You obviously make friends that last a lifetime – just look at these guys who are still close and you learn a lot of lessons that will carry with you your whole life.” County historian Rick Crawford - who emceed pregame ceremonies for the returning players - said celebrating the rebirth and continuation of football at Batavia is important. “Numbers, that’s what killed

AMELIA — Her long strides serve her well on the grass fields of Amelia High School, various gyms and a number of tracks and cross country trails. Senior Madison Terry practices soccer on the far fields adjacent to Amelia High School on Clough Pike. The browning blades are dry and hard and the mosquitoes welcome the Lady Barons most afternoons. A year from now, she’ll be on Northern Kentucky University’s synthetic turf playing Division I in the Atlantic Sun conference. The defender/midfielder for coach Amy Kemmer picked the Lady Norse over Ohio Dominican near Columbus. “It just came down to the money and just being closer to home,” Terry said. “My parents can come and watch. Division I helped a lot with NKU.” The proximity of Highland Heights and the growth of the campus has attracted several locals and the soccer complex at NKU is fairly new. Plus, the Atlantic Sun offers more scenic venues than your average bus tour of the Buckeye State. “We go to Florida and like stay all weekend,” Terry said. “It’s really exciting.” A club teammate of Terry’s, Liz Wittwer of McNicholas is also going to NKU. A quick check of the Lady Norse roster shows 20 players from the Tristate. Coach Bob Sheehan has harvested the area and found Terry while observing Wittwer on the club team. “He came to some of our

games and watched,” Terry said. “Then I went to one of their camps. After that, he recruited me.” Terry originally desired to run beyond high school. Outside of soccer, she has been Southern Buckeye Conference-American Division first team in cross country and track. She began running track at her parents’ insistence in seventh grade since soccer wasn’t offered in middle school. Eventually, a late high school growth spurt shifted her thinking. “I grew 6 inches and gained 40 pounds,” Terry said. “Junior year I started to realize that soccer was my true passion and what I really wanted to do in college.” Though she runs the field like a gazelle, Terry was undecided at presstime on her future high school running endeavors without a soccer ball involved. “I’m not for sure yet,” Terry said. “Not in college, but I’m not sure yet for high school. I do cross country, but I missed the first meet, so I’m not sure if I’m 100 percent running. It is a lot with the levy, like $500 to play. We need to see if I need to get in the weight room and get bigger for the college season.” Though playing mainly defender, Terry is a scoring threat and even found the goal twice against Bethel-Tate this season. At NKU, she will likely stay at defender. This winter, she still plans on playing basketball a final season with coach Tara Kaiser. After that, it’ll be no more dribbling with her hands as she prepares for her future soccer career a few exits south of the Ohio 125 exit on I-275.

them the first two times,” he said. “They just didn’t have enough kids to play. Back in 1968 when I was a senior (at Amelia), the senior class at Batavia was just 48 kids, boys and girls. Now it’s 111, which is sustainable for football. “In small communities you see names of friends, relatives, people you go to church with. I think it’s incredibly important people keep up and celebrate the good traditions of their

communities. The history of where you come from is very important. It instills a sense of pride.” Tom Young - who played on the 1973 squad and was one of about half a dozen players to come back for the event – agreed. “Community is everything,” he said. “Without community you don’t have your school, your football, anything. “In ’73 we had a lot of guys who hadn’t had any kind of football experience before the first day of practice. We took our lumps, but as you can see from See BATAVIA, Page A7

McNick dedicates field at Penn Station Stadium MT.


McNicholas High School dedicated the playing surface at Penn Station Stadium Sept. 7, naming it Klonne-Schmidt Field. Tom and Susie Siemers - parents and grandparents of McNicholas graduates - made a gift to the school for the naming rights. The name honors both former head football coach Steve Klonne and the Siemers’ grandsons who participated in the athletic program during their years at McNicholas. Klonne coached at McNicholas for 10 years before retiring from head coaching in 2010. The Siemers are parents to McNicholas graduates Gretchen Siemers Schmidt (’74), Stephanie Siemers Bloemer (’77) and Heidi Siemers Walsh (’84). They’ve had five

grandchildren graduate from the school and two are current students: Zach Schmidt (’99), Nick Schmidt (’02), Drew Schmidt (’06), Jillian Bloemer (’10), Anna Bloemer (’11), Mitch Bloemer (’14) and Emily Bloemer (’15). The facility housing Klonne-Schmidt Field was dedicated as Penn Station Stadium during the inaugural football game played there Oct. 16, 2010. Penn Station founder and McNick alumnus Jeff Osterfeld (’78) was honored for his donation to make the stadium a reality. In addition to sports, the Siemers support the arts at McNick, dividing their gift between the athletic and theater programs. The couple named the facility the Jeanne Spurlock Theatre in 2011 to honor the eponymous

former theater teacher. The Rockets football team played its first home game of the season on the newly named field, Sept. 7, hosting the Oakridge Secondary School from London, Ontario, Canada. They took care of the Canadian team in overwhelming fashion, winning 66-0 and bringing the season record to 1-1. In addition to four safeties and seven PATs/one field goal from Cole Carmosino, scoring touchdowns were: Dominic Gabriele, Luke Sulken, Sean Byrne, Tyler Gumbert (interception return), Adam Hisch (2), and Tyrone Jabin (2). The game marked the second time McNick hosted a Canadian team, the last being in 2010 when the Rockets played Medway High School, also from London, Ontario.

Members of the Siemers and Schmidt family were on hand for the re-naming of McNicholas’ football field to Klonne-Schmidt Field in honor of donations of Mr. and Mrs. Tom Siemers.

the last few years, it’s grown into a pretty good program. All in all it was a pretty good bunch of guys.” Young’s son Willie carried on his dad’s tradition of making Batavia football history when he played for the school’s first 10-0 team that went to the playoffs in 2000. Robert Howell, who played fullback, defensive end and monster in ’73, wasn’t that lucky in the win column, but enjoyed his playing experience

just the same. “My favorite memories were on defense,” he said. “As a fullback I didn’t have the best of hands, so getting to play defense was great for me. I remember playing Wil-

liamsburg when the fog rolled in. They were a smaller team, but they were fast. “I think (football) can bring a lot to young fellas in terms of sportsmanship and tradition.”

Seniors have the right to age in place In my former column, I used some buzz phrases that, as a Late Bloomer Baby Boomer, I am relating to on a new level. You may recall that a Late Bloomer Boomer is anyone born between 1956 and 1964. The term I used, Aging in Place, can mean many things to us. For me, it means wanting to age in place in my own homes, in my own neighborhoods and with my own friends and family. The American Association of Retired Persons describes “Aging in Place” as a cultural shift in that those who are aging are overwhelmingly preferring to stay at home, rather than be transplanted to nursing homes or assisted living facilities.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR An angel tire changer

On Aug.17, I was trailering my boat along Ohio 132 toward East Fork Lake in Batavia Township. A trailer tire disintegrated. Before I had a chance to fumble for my tire-changing tools a rusted-out red Honda S2000 stopped behind me. The young man asked if he could assist. I initially politely declined while I was trying to figure out what equipment I had to change a tire. He insisted that he did that kind of work all the time and that he had a hydraulic roller jack, jack stands, and cross bar (tire iron) in his trunk. I authorized the service and then utilized my skills at directing traffic while he did all the work. Upon completion, the young man told me that he would stop the traffic while I pulled out. I said, “Hey, how much do I owe you?” “Nothing,” he responded. “I just love to do this kind of work.” I’ve always believed in angels. But this is the first time one has ever changed a tire for me. As I pulled out, I looked in my side mirror and thought I saw a halo glistening a few inches above his head. John Becker Union Township

The National Association of Home Builders describes it as: Remaining in one’s home safely, inCindy Gramke dependently COMMUNITY PRESS and comfortably, regardGUEST COLUMNIST less of age, income or ability level. It means the pleasure of living in a familiar environment as we age and the ability to enjoy familiar rituals and special events that enrich our lives. It means the reassurance of being able to call a house a “home” for a lifetime. This hit “home” for me as my mother recently underwent knee replacement sur-

gery, followed by a stay in a rehabilitation facility. Fortunately, my father was anticipating her return and made modifications assisting her as she recovers at home. He first installed a grab bar at the front door. She can grab the bar for stability and pull herself up and in safely. He also installed grab bars in the shower, a shower chair and replaced the stationery shower head with a hand-held shower. Furniture has been moved to allow more space, and in addition to her quad-pronged cane, she has a walker to help maintain stability as she stands at the countertop in the kitchen or in the bath. Since studies show that we, overwhelmingly, want to live

in our own homes as we age, even Late Bloomer Boomers, such as myself, need to be thinking about ways we can be more creative for our parents or other loved ones and, ultimately, for ourselves. A person’s ability to get around his/her home and interact with the environment will determine the success of aging in place. Like my Dad did, installing grab bars can help you keep your balance when using steps/stairs and in the shower. In cases of more lengthy confinement to a wheelchair or walker, some may even consider widening doorways to help you get around in your home. As a healthy, vibrant generation, most of us have a bias

for the positive and have worked hard to eat right, play right and exercise right. Even in our healthiest state, giving some thought to the most fundamental elements of home design can work to our advantage. Planning in advance, even to develop the process by which we will access important home assistance equipment, like grab bars, will keep us from spinning our wheels later, not to mention allowing us to “Age in Place” according to our own preferences.

CH@TROOM Last week’s question Do you think the U.S. is safer now that it was 12 years ago, before the Sept.11attacks? What do you most remember about that day?

“No, I don’t think we’re safer. “We have a president who is much more interested in his personal popularity and vacations than taking care of our country. To be fair about it, I don’t think he’s capable of the job and doesn’t have the sense to appoint people who are. “I pray that we get through the next 3 years without another 9-11.”

“We probably are safer than we were12 years ago, but it’s the kind of statistic that is difficult to quantify because of political bickering and ignorance of most of the public. “It’s also true that many attacks may have been thwarted, but the kind of work by counterintelligence people that prevents them is secret and unknown to most of us. That’s why it’s generally ‘classified.’ “I remember being in my

“Personally I never felt unsafe before or after 9-11. It was a tragedy, but when you are raised practicing hiding under your desk because of a nuclear attack you tend to take the event with a different perspective. “When it occurred I was in my home office. My wife yelled and my immediate comment upon seeing it on TV was that it was Bin Laden.

“Yes, if your question asks about ‘from foreign terrorists.’ No, if your question asks about ‘from our re-elected leaders.’ “While deeply saddened that day and for some period after that day, the bombers knew they could ruin our country if they could make our re-elected officials run amok with our freedoms ... obviously, this has happened. It’s my biggest fear, and it is ongoing.” K.P.

“The Homeland Security Act is one of the biggest Republican slush funds in history. Anyone who looks at the expenditures will be depressed by the wasted money. “Hiring people to look at your underwear is not making you safer. And most of the money goes to Republican contrib-

They increase personal insecurity by passing gun laws which allow morons to obtain guns. “We all know that the NRA is an effective influence on Congress, but how many of us realize that the NRA is simply and exclusively a lobbying front for gun manufacturers? “We cannot be effective if we do not use the brains we have been endowed with. “The alternative is a declining human intelligence. N.F.

“I don't know if we are safer or not? It depends on how much our government will allow us to know and how that information is processed by them. “I guess if I had to pick I would say America is not as safe as before 911 because I believe we will always have Muslims wanting to destroy our way of life.” Dave D.

Taking aim at Gov. Kasich’s pet project Ohio Gov. John Kasich cooked up JobsOhio, a publicprivate hybrid non-profit, ostensibly to put more Ohioans in gainful employment. JobsOhio was created by Kasich in 2011 as a way to shift economic development policy from the state-funded Department of Development to the new agency, which is funded by the state and private companies. JobsOhio board members are appointed solely by Kasich. Democrats have asked the Ohio Ethics Commission to investigate JobsOhio, claiming that a number of the board members, as well as Kasich himself, have ties to the companies being helped with JobsOhio funds. “You cannot have people that are sitting on the board of directors of JobsOhio having their companies directly benefit. You cannot have a governor that is supposed to be looking out for all Ohioans looking out for all industry, receiving benefits from a company and

And, as a private COMMUNITY PRESS GUEST entity, it is not COLUMNIST subject to the state’s open meetings and records laws, ethics rules, or other requirements that generally affect State agencies. State Rep. Mike Duffey sponsored HB 1 which established JobsOhio and all of its shields. The Ohio Ethics Commission has quickly fallen in line with the legislative shields provided for JobsOhio. Since the Commission has limited jurisdiction and is unable to dig into complaints concerning JobsOhio, Ohio Ethic Commission Chairman Merom Brachman has dismissed them out of hand. By the way, Merom Brach-

man contributed to Duffey’s campaign. And, Brachman has given thousands of dollars to Kasich’s campaign efforts in recent years. Should we connect the dots? Two Ohio lawmakers, State Sen. Mike Skindell and State Rep. Dennis Murray, have teamed with in a lawsuit against JobsOhio. The thrust of the legal challenge argues Kasich has violated the State Constitution. Under the JobsOhio plan, Kasich chairs a board of eight CEOs. This chairmanship, the suit claims, runs counter to provisions in the statute that forbid governors from running businesses while in office. The complaint has been filed with the Ohio Supreme Court. Kasich has launched a $1.4 million JobsOhio media buy targeting Ohio residents. In a letter to Kasich, Cuyahoga County Executive Ed FitzGerald (potential 2014 opponent) raised some serious questions. “I write to express my concern about your recent use of

$1.4 million in state funds to place television and print ads that are an improper waste of state funds and seem intended to boost your gubernatorial re-election effort rather than actually help with economic development here in-state.” On top of it all, why did the Republican-controlled Ohio General Assembly recently pass a measure prohibiting Republican State Auditor Dave Yost from auditing JobsOhio? What are they hiding? Ethics violations? Conflicts of interest? State Constitution violations? Cronyism? Corruption? Or something worse? It just may be Kasich and JobsOhio are doing a real job on Ohio. Richard O. Schwab was associate head of school, and middle school head, Cincinnati Country Day School.

L IFE Artist masters colored pencils COMMUNITY JOURNAL


Artist Margi Hopkins, of Union Township, recently exhibited her work at the Colored Pencil Society of America’s 21st Annual International Exhibition in Brea, Calif. Hopkins’ new colored pencil art work, “Blue Crab,” was the juried piece for the Colored Pencil Society of America exhibit. In addition, her works have been exhibited locally and nationally in shows, including the 26th International Exhibition on Animals in Art (April 2013) hosted by LSU School of Veterinary Medicine. There, her work “Who Rescued Whom,” was presented with a Judge’s Award and was bought for the LSU veterinary medical library’s permanent collection. She also claimed Best of Show and People’s Choice awards at the Colored Pencil Society of America District Chapter 119 Exhibition in December 2012. With many accomplishments already to her credit, Hopkins said, “My immediate goal is to be invited to give a colored pencil workshop cruise with renowned portrait artist Ann Kullberg, November of 2014. This requires me to continue honing my skills, increasing my reputation in the art industry, and continually working toward

achievements in my field.” Hopkins received her first set of Prismacolor pencils in the seventh-grade, but it wasn’t until she attended a workshop organized by author-artist, Vera Curnow, and taught by awardwinning artist, Sharon TiejtjenPratt, that she discovered col-

ored pencil painting. “I have seen a growing respect for this medium,” Hopkins said. “Not to be confused by the colored pencils you might find in a child’s room, artist grade pencils have rich pigments along with fats and waxes to keep them smooth.

“And, that helps the artist to create a smoother work on paper while still creating art that shows rich, deep, and luminescent color variations. “Often I have found that my audience thinks that my pieces are done with paints rather than pencils.”

Hopkins graduated from Denison University with a bachelor of fine arts degree specializing in life drawing and printmaking. She worked in other mediums, including watercolor, before choosing colored pencils as her medium of choice. Hopkins is a member of the Colored Pencil Society of America. When she isn’t hiking with her dogs, taking photographs or painting, she is a veterinary assistant for Family Animal Hospital in Batavia. She lives in Union Township with her husband, Adam, her dogs, Ginger and Rags; and her cats, Charlotte, Mowgli and Stewie. . Hopkins is represented by Row House Gallery & Custom Framing in Milford. “Margi has been represented by Row House for three years,” said Nancy Meyer, Row House Gallery & Custom Framing. “It has been a pleasure to see the development of her artistic style. This latest Colored Pencil Society of America accomplishment adds another feather in her cap as she continues to collect awards in her field.” Row House Gallery is at 211 Main St. in Milford.

Beefers & Sheepers, and Nikki Branham of Owensville Winners placed in competition at the Ohio State Fair. “I am very proud of our 4-H exhibitors who placed at the Ohio State Fair, but I am equally proud of all our Junior Fair members who successfully

completed their non-livestock and livestock projects to showcase at the Clermont County Fair,” said Kelly Royalty, Ohio State University Extension’s 4-H Youth Educator for Clermont. “The public sees the results of our exhibitors’ hard work at the fair, but there is a lot of work and preparation behind the scenes that happens before the fair, too,” she added. By March 1, all Junior Fair participants (4-H, FFA, FCCLA, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, American Heritage Girls and Grange) had to register for the projects they would complete for the 2013 fair season. For 4-H members, this meant picking from the more than 200 projects offered in Ohio. From the spring deadline, exhibitors worked hard to finish general projects, attend club meetings and trainings such as Quality Assurance, participate in skill-a-thon competitions, raise livestock and practice their interview skills – to name just a few components that lead to a finished project. General project interviews were held June 29 and July 11 at the fairgrounds; exhibitors ranking first through fifth place were announced July 20 at Winner’s Circle. The first place winner was named the state fair delegate with the second place winner as state fair alternate. There is no pre-judging needed for companion animal and livestock projects; any county exhibitor can attend the state fair. “A number of volunteers, judges, parents and businesses helped us with the events leading up to the county fair,” Royalty said. “We would like to thank all of our helpers.” “All Junior Fair exhibitors put a lot of time, energy and effort into their projects, and we want to share their successes with the community,” Royalty explained. “We are very proud of how they represent the Clermont County 4-H program.”

Our family friend, Ruth Ann Rita Ashburn, Heikenfeld could have RITA’S KITCHEN quoted these sayings after a storm wrecked havoc with two of her favorite trees: A maple she raised from a sapling and the tallest wild cherry tree I’ve ever seen. My husband, Frank, and I went over to help. Frank brought his saw and tackled the smaller limbs. The professionals came in for the rest. The silver lining here is we now have a good amount of wood aging for next year. The storm also knocked a lot of our apples off our trees, so I had to use the fallen ones up. Granddaughter Eva and I made applesauce for her little sister, Emerson. She washed the apples and I chunked them up for the slow cooker. I also dehydrated some apples and have apple leather/rollups drying in the sun. Check my blog for those recipes plus photos.

Chris Lipnick’s apple blossom cake

Chris, a Kentucky reader, immigrated to this country from Germany. Chris, like my daughter-in-law Inge, is an expert baker. Chris shared this recipe a while back and I get requests for it when apple season

lost her recipe and was hoping beyond all hope that I could help find it requested this. “I’ve made this quite a bit although not recently. This recipe is probably at least 20 years old. Since I dusted this off, I think I will fix it again soon,” Kathy said. 1 lb. cod frozen, thawed enough to cut (about 1 hour at room temperature) 2 cups water 3 tablespoons cider vinegar 2 teaspoons salt 3 tablespoons butter 1 ⁄2 teaspoon paprika

rolls around. A moist and “good keeper” cake. “Everyone wants the recipe,” Chris told me. 3 eggs 2 cups sugar 11⁄4 cups canola oil 3 cups all-purpose flour 1 ⁄2 teaspoon each cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, salt 11⁄2 teaspoons baking soda 1 teaspoon vanilla 3 cups peeled and chopped apples (Chris likes Granny Smith) 1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease and

flour Bundt pan. Beat sugar and eggs until creamy. Add oil slowly and beat until blended. Sift flour with spices, salt and soda. Pour into egg mixture and blend. Add vanilla, apples and nuts. Blend well and pour into pan. Bake 11⁄4 hours. Cool and remove from pan. Dust with powdered sugar or make glaze of lemon juice and powdered sugar.

Cut each block of fillets into equal chunks each about 1-inch square. In a medium saucepan, bring water, vinegar and salt to a boil over moderately high heat. Add fish chunks and reduce heat to moderate and simmer 15 minutes until fish is opaque in center. Use an ovenproof pan and melt the butter in it. Remove fish with slotted spoon and place in a single layer in prepared pan. Sprinkle fish with paprika and spoon butter over fish. Broil 3 to 5 inches

from heat source for about 5 minutes, spooning butter over fish once.

Roasted smashed potato cakes

That virus can be used to steal personal information from your computer. FedEx says the main thing the scammers want is to collect user-names, passwords, Social Security numbers, and credit card details. Consumer Reports says one of its staffers received one of these e-mails last year which stated he’d have to pay a fee if he failed to act. Like FedEx, the U.S Postal Service has a warning on its website about e-mails claiming to be from the postal service seeking online postage charges or telling of attempted or intercepted package deliveries. Postal officials say you should delete these messages without taking further action. It says, “The Postal Inspection Service is working hard to resolve the issue and shut down the malicious program.” Remember, neither FedEx nor the post office will send you an e-mail.

Five ovarian cancer survivors get ready for the Power is Teal 5K, Sept. 21, at Lunken Playfield. In back, from left, are Karen Herzog (Liberty Township), Karen Kruse (Madeira), Pat West (Eastgate); in front are Martha Farr (Montgomery), Susan Heitbrink (Western Hills) THANKS TO JAMIE EIFERT

5K to raise ovarian cancer awareness Pink ribbons are now almost universally recognized as the symbol of breast cancer awareness and fundraising, but several local women are hoping that teal ribbons will soon be equally well known. Teal is the color adopted by ovarian cancer advocacy groups, and with the national Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month approaching in September the Ovarian Cancer Alliance of Greater Cincinnati (OCAGC) will be showing its zeal for teal as they work to create public awareness of symptoms of ovarian cancer and provide support for women affected by the disease. The local nonprofit ovarian cancer resource organization will sponsor its seventh annual Power is Teal 5K Run/ Walk for Ovarian Cancer Awareness at 8:30 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 21, at Lunken Playfield to help raise funds and raise

awareness of the symptoms of ovarian cancer to aid in early detection. A special invitation is extended to ovarian cancer survivors, who may register at no cost and will receive a special gift at the event. For other supporters, entry fees are $25 (adults) and $12 (children ages 6-12) before Sept. 14 and $30 (adults), $15 (children) after Sept. 14. Children ages 5 and under are free. For complete details and advance registration, visit www.cincyteal. or call 8536370. “Because ovarian cancer has the highest mortality rate of all gynecological cancers, there’s sometimes a misperception that ovarian cancer survivors don’t exist,” said Martha Farr of Montgomery, “but we are proof that is not the case. ” Susan Heitbrink of Western Hills added, “We know there are other survivors and recently diagnosed women in our community who could really benefit from talking with women who have been through the same situation, and we hope they will find OCAGC and take advantage of our programs.” Importantly, data shows that if ovarian cancer is caught before it has spread beyond the ovaries, the five-year survival rate is in the 90 percent range. But because the symptoms are subtle and not well known, it is less likely than some other cancers to be found early. Symptoms to watch for are persistent bloating, pelvic or abdominal pain, difficulty eating or feeling full quickly, and urinary symptoms (urgency or frequency). When Karen Kruse of Madeira first started noticing symptoms, she had no idea that they were common to ovarian cancer. “Most women think constipation, bloating and abdominal pain are only related to digestive issues and don’t realize they can also be warning signs of ovarian cancer.” According to Pat West of Eastgate, their passion for the teal movement is heartfelt. “We’ve been through the process ourselves and many of our volunteers have lived through it with a friend or family member. Now we’re very motivated to do all we can to offer hope and help others in the same situation.”



Event to benefit hospitals for children Howdy Folks, The Shrimp harvest at the Ratliff Farm is taking place Sept. 14 and 21. Both days are on Saturday. This is something to see. They have two ponds they stock with shrimp. They are located on John Woods Road off Ohio 32. Turn right going from Williamsburg and go about two or three miles on the right side of the road. They also sell them after they have harvested them. This is a very good education for everyone. The rehab is going good, it is Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings. The ladies that take care of it do a fine job. There is quite a group that use his facility. The Monroe Grange had its planning meeting and covered-dish supper last Friday evening to plan the activities for the upcoming year. There will be meetings, monthly card parties, bake sales at the 360 Auction, ice cream social, and plant sale, plus other activities. When I went to get the mail last week there was the most beautiful butterfly sitting on the porch. It had blue wings with real bright blue on some of the body. Saturday evening Ruth Ann and I went to the Meyers, for a thankyou picnic for the help on the tornado relief. There

was a good crowd. But the Good Lord sent a storm and rain which dampened the event. George There was Rooks enough OLE FISHERMAN food to feed a small army. These folks sure suffered a great loss and the Lions Club came to their need along with dozens of other folks and businesses. God bless the Meyers and all. I talked to Mike at the Boars Head Bait Shop at Afton. There will be a special program put on by the Shriners on Sept. 21. The Shriners little cars will be there for the children to get their picture taken, plus lots more. The benefit will be for Clermont County. It will be named for the Syrian Shriners for the Shriners Hospital, and there will be a crappie tournament that day. The Chic-Fil-A will be there also with the cow. There will be lots of food and activities so mark your calendar for Sept. 21 from 7:30 a.m. till 3:30 p.m. Since I am making announcements there will be a festival of Hymns at New Richmond along the river. Bring your lawn chairs. This singing starts at


10 a.m. and goes till 12:30 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 21. This will be along Front Street overlooking the Ohio River. Do you love praising God in song? Then bring a lawn chair and enjoy. Last year they had 200 this year they look for more. There is a contact person Scott Wyatt of the New Richmond Church of Christ at 923-0982. We hope to be part of the crowd. This is wonderful to praise the good Lord. The garden is almost done. We have some green beans blooming and zucchini starting to bloom, so it looks like we may have some late garden. The tomatoes in the bed close to the house in buckets are starting to ripen. I put several toma-

toes in buckets and then fenced around them, they are doing good. The honey bees are still bringing pollen into the hives, so there will be honey for the bees to winter over. We hope and pray. The apple orchards are starting to pick; the A&M. Orchard between Fayetteville and Westboro, have Gala and Early Blaze apples so stop and get some and say hello to Cindy. The Saner Orchard is picking apples as are the Pringles Orchard. This is the season to get apples, pumpkins, Indian corn for decorating, green beans and other garden items. Visit the Grant’s Farm and Greenhouses, they have pumpkins, green beans and will have more

sweet corn in a week or two. They have plenty of mums and Indian corn. Dannie said they have about 7,000 mums. The Clermont P.E.R.I. chapter will meet at the Batavia Township Center on Sept. 18 at 11:30 a.m. with a covered-dish lunch. A cold-cut meat and cheese tray will be provided. The speaker for the meeting will be Bobbie O’Neil, education manager for OPERS. If you belong to the State P.E.R.S. you may attend and join this chapter which helps with the legislation information for all retirees. The Bethel United Methodist Church will begin practicing a Christmas Cantata for the Down Home Christmas weekend. There will be

lots of other activities this fall, so keep watching for notices. The Old Bethel M.E. Church Homecoming will be held on Oct. 6 at 2 p.m. This is always a good time for all. The Kinner Express will be providing the music along with John Hale favoring us with a song. Cookies will be enjoyed after the celebration on the lawn. If you want to bring a lawn chair to sit and visit you may do so. Start your week by going to the house of worship of your choice and praise the good Lord. God bless all. More Later. George Rooks is a retired park ranger. Rooks served for 28 years with the last five as manager of East Fork State Park.
