BECAUSE COMMUNITY MATTERS

Fishing in dark no more

By Keith BieryGolick

kbierygolick@communitypress.com

AMELIA — The pond at the southeast corner of Jenny Lind Road and Eastridge Drive has a fountain that’s been slowly gravitating toward the road. Officials want to bring it back to the center and put lights on it – something it never had before. “I did some research on getting lights put on that fountain back in Sedona Ridge,” said Chris Dickerson, village council member. “To add lights to it to get it centered out there on the pond we’re looking at about $1,500 max.” Dickerson spoke with Jones Fish Hatcheries in Newtown to get an estimate. “If we have enough wire to run to the center of the pond, you’ll come in under $1,500,” Dickerson said. “I’d like to move forward with that so we don’t have a big body of water with no illumination on it at night.” The estimate included the addition of two lights and any necessary wiring to the fountain. It also included a timer so the lights don’t run all day long,

Residents have had problems with this pond at the entrance to the Sedona Ridge Subdivision before. Amelia Village Council erected catch and release signs. Now, council will spend about $1,500 to put lights on the fountain. KEITH BIERYGOLICK/THE COMMUNITY PRESS

Dickerson said. Residents of the subdivision are not part of a homeowners association and because of that the

pond is part of an easement making village responsible for it, said Mayor Todd Hart. Money for the lighting will

probably come out of the village’s general fund, but Hart couldn’t say for sure yet. The pond has been a problem

spot in the past, said council member Derrick Campbell. “One thing we did experience before ... was the people fishing there would hook (the pump underneath the fountain) and bring it in to get it out of the middle of the pond,” Campbell said. “They used to drag it in, just shut it off and all kinds of stuff.” That problem has subsided in recent years, Hart said. “Ever since we put the catch and release signs up, everything has been great,” he said. “I think it deterred a lot of people that weren’t residents coming there fishing – they were netting fish, taking fish out. “Once we put the catch and release (signs) up they don’t even come around anymore. “Now it’s pretty much all local residents.” Council suggested Dickerson check about the cost of restocking the pond as well. “We had it restocked about seven years ago and I think it was (about) $500,” Campbell said. Officials unanimously passed a motion to move forward with the project. The lights should be installed in two weeks, Hart said.

4 square off for 2 Union Twp. trustee seats By Jeanne Houck

jhouck@communitypress.com

UNION TWP. — Economic development. Tax cuts. Abandoned property. These are some of the issues on the minds of four candidates running for two seats up for election on the Union Township Board of Trustees Tuesday, Nov. 5. That’s when incumbents Timothy M. Donnellon and Bob McGee will square off with challengers Lloyd Acres and John K. McGraw for four-year terms that begin in January. “The issues in this race are what services we want as a township and how do we best pay for them,” said Donnellon, who currently is chairman of the Board of Trustees. “I have promoted economic development to create jobs and a revenue stream that has allowed us to reduce property taxes on our residents without cutting the quantity or quality of services. “My opponents opposed Jungle Jim’s, (Total Quality Logistics) and the other (joint economic-development districts),” Donnellon said. “Without the revenue from them, the general fund would be operating at a deficit of nearly $1 million annually, necessitating service cuts and/or property-tax increases.” McGee has served as a trustee 12 years and says the finan-

cial condition of Union Township is the most important issue in the race. “In the past four years we have lost about $4 million in fundAcres ing,” McGee said. “However, we have not reduced our level of service. “We are the only township in the (United States) with police, fire, commuDonnellon nication and service departments nationally accredited,” McGee said. “As a trustee I have worked to bring over 3,000 jobs to our community, generating millions in new revenue. “As promised, we are the first township in the county to reduce property taxes through the elimination of an existing levy,” McGee said. “I have the experience and the proven track record necessary to keep us moving forward.” Acres, who like McGraw has not held an elective public office previously, believes the township could do better. “Customer service is important,” Acres said. “The Union Township residents — our customers – should be served in a higher fashion than they are today.

“Many times the resident comes before the board and gets no results,” Acres said. “We need to cut wasteful spending and imMcGee prove on our core services. “We need to put trust back in the office of trustee and serve our residents with respect,” Acres said. “Everyone McGraw should play a part in the township and be heard.” McGraw said Union Township needs to address the number of abandoned houses in the township. “I go door-to-door to meet voters and on most every street is an abandoned house,” McGraw said. “I will bring the community together with Realtors and homebuyers to promote our community and get families to purchase these homes.” McGraw said he also would take steps to ensure safe routes to school. “With limited busing many kids need to walk to school, but with limited sidewalks it is not safe for them to do so,” McGraw said. “There are state and federal dollars available for this infrastructure improvement and I

Engineers respond to road opponents By Jeanne Houck jhouck@communitypress.com

NEWTOWN — County

engineers shepherding the “Eastern Corridor Program” want to help – not hurt – communities that may be affected if any part of the comprehensive transportation proposal is approved. That’s according to Hamilton County Engineer Ted Hubbard, who spoke to the Community Press after he and Clermont County Engineer Pat Manger emailed members of a Newtown community group opposed to proposed traffic changes to challenge a brochure the group is distributing called “The End of Newtown.” The Newtown Community Partnership Committee – comprised of village officials, business people and residents – says in the brochure that the transportation proposal would relocate state Route 32, rolling a four-lane high-

way through Newtown that would destroy some village businesses, relocate some homes, devastate Native American archeological sites, put a serious dent in Newtown’s income- and property-tax receipts and increase air, noise and water pollution. Hubbard said transportation officials are seeking fact-based input from communities and have made no final decisions about the proposed plan, which is designed to improve travel and access between downtown Cincinnati and the eastern area of the region by upgrading and relocating roads, adding rail transit, expanding bus service and extending bikeways and walking paths. “We have, on multiple occasions, stated publicly and to several of you directly, that we will not support the realignment of any roadway option that would irreparably damage or ‘destroy Newtown’ or any community along

the corridor,” Hubbard and Manger say in the email. Hubbard told the Community Press that, “I will tell you, I will not support a new interstate highway or an interstate-like highway traversing the eastern corridor area. “There is no desire to destroy any central business district or neighborhood in any way, shape or form,” Hubbard said. Newtown Village Councilmen Mark Kobasuk and Chuck Short, both members of the Newtown Community Partnership Committee, say the group is standing by the statements in its brochure. “Any decision we make will have impacts we have to live with,” Hubbard told the Community Press, “so it is critical that the decision be made in the light of the facts. “‘No build’ is an option,” Hubbard said. But, “‘No build’ does have significant impacts as well,” said Hubbard.

Batavia Twp. candidates tackle job growth, spending By Forrest Sellers fsellers@communitypress.com

BATAVIA TWP. — Fiscal responsibility and bringing in new jobs are priorities for candidates in an upcoming election. Three of the candidates for Batavia Township trustees, Bill Dowdney, Randy Perry and James Sauls Jr., are incumbents while two, Jason Fraley and Charles Eddie Miller, are challengers hoping to change the status quo. Dowdney, who has served three years as a trustee and is currently chairman of the Board of Trustees said attracting new jobs to the township should continue to remain a focus. “We have been pretty successful the last few

years,” he said. “In the last few years 34 companies have either started or relocated Dowdney here. “This has created several hundred jobs.” Dowdney said the township has been successful in bringing a number of manufacturing jobs to the area. Fraley, who is president of the Sardinia Concrete Co., said he considers spending in the township a priority. “I’d like to address the issue of how the township spends its dollars in general,” he said. Fraley said the township relies too heavily on

tax increment financing and would like to consider other revenue alternatives. Miller, Fraley who works in insurance and bond sales, also said spending in the township needs to be addressed. “We need to start looking at cost savings,” said Miller, who said he would also like to rein in the amount of tax increment financing supported by

Clermont consolidates numerous polling sites About 30,000 registered voters in Clermont County will receive a “bright green” notification card sometime during the first week of October, advising them of a precinct and/or polling location change that will be effective starting with the general election on Nov. 5. The Clermont County Board of Elections has consolidated numerous precincts in the county in order to equalize the number of voters in each precinct. Presently, the Ohio Revised Code limits the number of voters to a maximum of 1,400 per precinct. All boards of elections across the state have been consolidating and splitting precincts in order to save money and comply with state requirements. The board has made 18 polling place changes in

the township. “Our funding keeps shrinking,” he said. “As Miller (funding) shrinks, we can’t keep at the same level of overhead.” Sauls, who has served on the board of trustees for five years, said revenue is shrinking, but he attributes this to a reduction in local government funding and declining

Two workers are injured in Batavia Twp. fire Gannett News Service

Two workers with Arronco Comfort Air were seriously injured and transported to Univer-

sity Hospital after a fire broke out in a Batavia Township home Sept. 25. Central Joint Fire/ EMS District Chief Jim Pemberton believes the

workers were working on a geothermal unit in the home’s laundry room when the room caught fire. Pemberton said both

workers were burned and seriously injured. One worker was transported by air. . The fire was contained to the laundry room, but a

significant portion of the home had smoke damage. Pemberton estimates that the damage could be around $10,000. Emergency units re-

sponded to the fire at 2:23 p.m. at the 80 block of Judd Road. The cause of the fire is still under investigation.

West Clermont Local School District reviews its budget By Forrest Sellers fsellers@communitypress.com

UNION TWP — . With a little more than a month until an upcoming taxhike issue appears on the Nov. 5 ballot, West Cler-

mont Local School District officials provided a financial overview during its recent meeting. The district has a fiveyear, 5.8-mill additional tax-hike proposal on the ballot.

Treasurer Alana Cropper provided details on how funds were spent in 2013 during the September Board of Education meeting. Cropper said appropriations for fiscal year 2014 are due by Sept.

30. She said the appropriations for 2014 are about $60,000 less than the previous year. However, enough of the costs were similar to the previous fiscal year that Cropper felt

a presentation detailing the the 2013 budget was viable. The general budget was just above $80 million, according to Cropper. Breaking down the district’s budget in a pieshaped graph, Cropper said about $65 million was spent on operating costs. “For the fourth year in a row we have decreased expenditures,” said Cropper. “We’re cutting our budget to live within our budget (and) to stay below the rate of inflation.” Cropper said the district spends about $8,229 per pupil, which she said is less than than the state average and less than similar districts. She said the state average per-pupil cost is $10,508 and that similar districts spend about $9,657 per pupil. Other details of the financial presentation: » Salaries make up the greatest portion of the operating costs at 51 percent or $33.1 million.

» The two main “benefit” costs are retirement and health insurance. The total cost for both is about $12.7 million. » The top contracted service is for transportation at $4.2 million. » The permanent improvement fund makes up about 4.1 percent of the budget. The permanent improvement budget for 2013 was about $3.2 million. School board members responded favorably to the presentation. “(We) often get comments that we need to live within our means,” said board member Denise Smith. “Hopefully, (residents) will take this information and understand the dire need we have.” School board member Tammy Brinkman said improvements in technology have helped to reduce costs associated with the use of paper and other “consumables.” “Teachers are thinking outside the box to deliver education more economically,” she said.

Lions RB causes trouble for foes By Mark D. Motz mmotz@communitypress.com

The McNicholas High School girls golf team celebrated its Queen of the Hill victory over Anderson and Turpin high schools Sept. 25 by jumping in a bunker off the ninth green at Coldstream Country Club. The Rockets didn't spend much time in the sand the rest of the day, winning the event with a team score of 188. Turpin was runner up at 214 and Anderson took third at 241.

QUEEN OF THE HILL SCORES

mmotz@communitypress.com

ANDERSON TWP. — Sometimes a victory is more than mere numbers on a scoreboard. Ask Sarah Hickman. The McNicholas High School senior owns her share of athletic victories, to be sure. Among them, medalist honors at the Sept. 25 Queen of the Hill golf tournament at Coldstream Country Club. Her round of 44 helped the Rockets to a188-214-241victory over Turpin and Anderson high schools, respectively. For Hickman - a Batavia resident - golf is anything but a five-mile walk spoiled. After missing her entire junior season fighting leukemia, every day on the course is joy. “I missed it,” she said. “I love playing. I’ve played since I was old enough to walk, basically. It was hard not to play last year.” The cancer fight continues. Hickman undergoes monthly chemotherapy treatments, which will continue through May 2014. She had one the week before both Queen of the Hill and the Division II sectional tournament Sept. 23, where she led the Rockets to a runner-up finish, one stroke behind Indian Hill, to advance to the districts at Pipestone Oct. 3. Rocket coach Willy Corbett credits Hickman for a lot of the team’s success, including a 10stroke drop in score from last year’s victorious 198 in the Queen of the Hill. “That’s purely coaching,” he said with a laugh. “No, serious-

ly, that’s having Sarah Hickman back. Not just her playing, but inspiring the other girls, too. She’s one who never wants a day off, who always wants to work harder, even when she’s not well after a treatment. “She was medalist today, but she’s still not satisfied. That’s the competitor in her. She loves the game, which you have to do to play it as well as she does.” Hickman looks forward to the rest of the tournament season. Her older sister Allison qualified for state competition two years ago. Sarah said following her to Columbus in a couple of weeks is a reasonable goal. “I think so,” she said. “It’d be great to make it as a team, too. We have a chance to do that.” All three teams had a good

day at Coldstream. “(Winning Queen of the Hill) is a point of pride, but to see the whole community come together and support all three schools, that’s what I wish sports was more often,” Corbett said. “This is such a good event.” Turpin High School coach J.K. Buck agreed, saying, “Our girls have a blast. This is an awesome event. Nothing like it.” So did Anderson coach Darin Hausberger. “This is what it’s all about. It’s great to play the other girls in the area, to have pizza afterward with your friends. And for me, it’s great to get to play with Willy and J.K. It’s a great day for Anderson.”

NEW RICHMOND — Somewhere, Professor Harold Hill smiles. River City’s got trouble again. I say trouble. And that starts with T and that rhymes with P and that stands for pool. Yes, pool. The kind Jackie Gleason and Paul Newman played in the movies, not the kind Michael Phelps mined for Olympic gold. And it’s not too big of a stretch to say pool helped New Richmond High School senior running back Blake Thompson become the trouble other teams don’t like to see coming their way. Let’s back up. Thompson spent the preseason preparing to play safety. Head coach Josh Stratton said he had the potential to be allstate in the defensive backfield. But an injury to Tyler Anderson in the first game of the season necessitated Thompson switching to running back. “We have a real big, physical offensive line that makes some good holes for him,” Stratton said. “They really put him in a good position to be successful. “After our first game, we

really coached him up on hitting his aiming points and he picked it up. He runs downhill. When he runs with his chest over his toes, when he doesn’t cut until the second level, that’s when he’s at his best.” His second game at running back? Thompson put together a 220-yard performance on just 19 carries in little more than a half of action. Thompson – who said he’s been known to shoot pool for up to 10 hours at a time – said seeing the angles on the table and planning a few shots ahead helped him see the holes blockers create. “If you don’t think something out before it happens, you’re not going to know how to react when it does,” Thompson said. “I like math a lot. I like numbers. I’m taking trigonometry right now and it all applies.” Stratton likes the intellectual approach as much or more than the corporal. “He’s a very physical runner, a very strong kid. He catches the ball well. Blake is a much more versatile athlete than just a tailback. We’ll put him in the slot, move him outside, get him the ball in space and let him go. “But honestly, I think it’s the intellect that lets him do that. He picks things up really easily and keeps them in his head.” Thompson likes the flexibility he’s afforded with the ball. “It pays to pay attention to other positions, to have an understanding of what everybody on the field does,” he said. “It pays to be able to do different things. “I like the new (spread) offense we’re running,” he said. “I feel like we’re moving it around See LIONS, Page A7

Amelia Barons soccer in hunt for blue October By Scott Springer sspringer@communitypress.com

AMELIA — The loss of several key seniors from last year’s 16-1 Amelia High School boys soccer team left some thinking the Barons might not be able to rebuild quick enough for 2013. While not as dominant as the 2012 Barons, this season’s crop coached by Eric Burger is in a clump of schools in the Southern Buckeye ConferenceAmerican Division with a chance at the league. Against opponents New Richmond, Bethel-Tate, Western Brown and Norwood the Barons have had games that could have gone either way and several ties. “Most of our games have been one or two goal games,” Burger said. “We’re trying to put things together.” In their early 2-2-3 start, Amelia had close matches with Winton Woods, Bethel-Tate, Glen Este, Western Brown, Goshen, New Richmond and Nor-

wood. “We have two seniors that play a lot,” Burger said. “We’ve given up a lot of mental errors. In three games we tied, we were winning.” The close contests were followed by blowouts against Felicity-Franklin and Clermont Northeastern where the Barons scored 18 goals. “They are difficult because we back off,” Burger said. “We try to work on some more things, like possession. It does give me an opportunity to get some guys in the game.” With just three seniors overall, Burger relies on youth as he tries to make an October run. “My main scorers are two sophomores, my defense is three juniors and my midfield is a sophomore and two juniors,” Burger said. “The future looks good, but we’re not done this year.” Sophomore Scott Ervin has been among the city’s top 20 in scoring, followed by senior

Marcus Ellerhorst and Scott’s twin, Randy Ervin. A year ago, Burger had nine all-league players. Gone is the reliable foot of SBAAC-American Player of the Year Anthony Clark and Cody Sprague. That pair was fourth and fifth in the city, respectively.

“We spread the wealth now,” Burger said. “I rotate my forwards and I rotate my midfielders. I just need someone to score.” Unfortunately, as good as his recent Amelia teams were, they usually made quick exits in the tournament.

“When we get to the tournament, we want to get a win and see how we do in the second round,” Burger said. “There’s only been one team in Amelia history to get out of the second round. We don’t have the numbers.” The numbers are deceiving. Despite Amelia’s outstanding record last year (16-0), they got a difficult match-up with a school that has more boys to choose from. “Soccer in Cincinnati is really good,” Burger said. “Depending on where you’re seeded, you might get a first-round game you can win, but then you’re going to be playing one of the top seeds. If you’re in the middle, it’s going to be a great game, like we had with Lakota East last year.” Prior to any postseason chatter, Amelia has in three straight road games against Goshen, Mariemont and New Richmond. The regular season home finale is Oct. 9 against Norwood.

all over the place. Defenses have to prepare for a lot more options, four or five things on any set, instead of just one or two. That’s how we can exploit them.” Still, with Anderson on the mend, Thompson and Stratton both hope to see the senior back at safety before too long. “I love playing defense,” Thompson said. “You can hit people without getting in trouble.” Which starts with T and that rhymes with P and that … well, you know the rest.

America’s way of life is threatened

Live Nude Dancing in Downtown Milford! A hoax gets above-the-fold front page billing. America’s way of life threatened by growing income disparity; real news isn’t in the newspaper. How quaint. IRS data for 2012 show the top 1 percent took more of the income from the nation’s GDP than since the Roaring 20’s. These folk took 20 percent of all income. If you made $394,000 you are now in the 1 percent; if your income was $140,000 you at least made it into the top 10 percent (who didn’t do so badly either; they took more than half of the country’s total income). This is the highest income disparity level recorded since the government began col-

lecting such data a century ago. If you made less than that, you are sharing leftovers with the hoi polloi. If you’re living Len on Social SecuHarding COMMUNITY PRESS rity alone, you are in the lowGUEST COLUMNIST est 25 percent. Over the last 30 years income inequality has increased steadily. “One major factor contributing to income inequality: stagnant wages ... Overall employee compensation ... (has fallen) to its lowest share of national income in more than 50 years while corporate profits have climbed to their highest share over that time.” – (NY Times)

Even with such information smacking us in the face, we manage to get our shorts twisted when fast-food workers want union representation. There’s a notion that only high-school kids work at McDonald’s, Burger King, etc.; that these are only starter jobs and if wages were higher, prices would be higher. As if we would starve. Fifty-three percent of fastfood workers are 21 and older, only 30 percent are teenagers. Almost 85 percent have graduated from high school; more than one-third have some college. Twenty-seven percent of all fast-food workers have at least one child. These are no longer entry-level jobs for teens, yet 13 percent of fastfood workers are paid the federal minimum wage, or less.

Fewer than 17 percent earn $10.10 per hour or more – (The Hill). These are not steppingstone jobs leading to managerial positions. Low paid front-line occupations comprise 89 percent of all jobs in the industry. Even supervisors have a median hourly wage of $13.06 per hour. It is difficult to imagine how someone getting less than $14/hr accumulates enough capital to own anything, let alone a franchise outlet. All low-wage earners are targets for wage theft: unpaid overtime, denial of breaks, improper deductions from paychecks, out-of-pocket deductions for register stoppages, and late or bounced paychecks.

Conservatives are the real truth-deniers “Old Greg” started out his recent commentary claiming that the liberals base their ideas, policies, etc. on feelings (opinions) and that conservatives base theirs on facts. Then, “Old Greg” writes a column based on his factually, incorrect opinions of reality and misrepresents liberal positions. The real difference between conservatives and liberals is that conservatives are truth deniers. They deliberately ignore mathematical and scientific facts, resulting in a phenomenon of “willful ignorance.” They deny the true causes of our federal deficit, they deny the failure of “trickle down” economic policy, they deny climate change influenced by humans, and they deny the majority held view that expanded background checks before purchasing a gun would save lives. These positions put all of us at risk due to public pol-

icies based on denial of the facts. Since my space here is limited to 500 words, I have included a link below to a blog I creDottie ated with the Miller facts includCOMMUNITY ing hyperPRESS GUEST COLUMNIST links to sources for each topic in a point by point rebuttal to “Old Greg.” Point 1: “Old Greg” denies that the Bush-era tax cuts drive the deficit. Fact: “The goal of reining in long-term deficits and debt would be much easier to achieve if it were not for the policies set in motion during the Bush years. Just two policies dating from the Bush Administration – tax cuts and the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan account for almost half of the $17 trillion in debt that will be owed by 2019 under

current policies.” Sources: Center on Budget and Policy Priorities and CBO Report Liberal position: We all know that the Bush-era tax cuts were not just applied to the rich. Those tax cuts applied to the middle class as well, but the liberals’ position was made clear throughout the last presidential campaign. The push was to repeal the tax cuts for those couples making over $250,000, while keeping the cuts in place for the middle class during this time of recovery. The liberal solution to the deficit problem is one of balance between spending cuts and increased taxes. Point 2: Old Greg’s second point claims that the rich are the job creators. Fact: “There is not conclusive evidence, however, to substantiate a clear relationship between the 65-year steady reduction in the top

Two-thirds of delivery workers polled have experienced wage theft. These people need a union. Unionization would introduce a modicum of balance in the employment dynamic. But that doesn’t happen here; we’re incessantly told unions are bad. If Clermont County were Indian Hill writ large, Clermont County’s voting patterns would make sense. We give 67 percent of our votes to people who have every intention of keeping us on this downward wage spiral. Just how does this benefit the working people of Clermont County?

tax rates and economic growth. Analysis of such data suggests the reduction in the top tax rates have had little association with saving, investment, or productivity growth. “However, the top tax rate reductions appear to be associated with the increasing concentration of income at the top of the income distribution. (In other words the rich get richer.) “The share of income accruing to the top 0.1 percent of U.S. families increased from 4.2 percent in 1945 to 12.3 percent by 2007 before falling to 9.2 percent due to the 2007-2009 recession. “ SOURCE CRS Report for Congress Sept. 14, 2012 To continue reading the rest of my point-by-point rebuttal and see the supporting sources visit http://liberallady584.blogspot.com/

What are West Clermont teachers giving up?

This is too little, too late. Three years ago teachers agreed to a pay freeze in order to keep art, gym, music, library, computer and bus service as well as saving teachers’ jobs in the district if then Superintendent Gary Brooks did the same. As you can see, Brooks was greedy and you know the rest of the story. The 2013-14 school year is already in session so what are the teachers really giving up? Haven’t they already received their increase prior to the start of the school year? Also, having teachers now pay 16 percent of health and dental benefits...really?? Has the district looked at the real world and what private sector salaries and benefit contributions are for the rest of us? What about administration... how are they contributing??

CH@TROOM Last week’s question Should college athletes be paid? If so, now much? If not, why not?

“College athletes should receive scholarships and stipends for play. A large percentage of players come from low-income families that cannot financially support the athletes. “The scholarships do not include extra money for daily expenses. As a result, a number of players in recent times have resorted to selling awards, autographs and accepting cars and other favors because they have no money. “I do appreciate that common sense and good judgement also play a role. However, how many readers of the could survive on no income? “We all know that athletes cannot not get jobs during school due to the demands on their schedules for training, practice and playing locally and across country – and then there’s studying, attending classes and homework. “Come on, we all enjoy watching them perform and especially winning.

“Yes, I believe athletes who are requested to spend a stipulated number of days each year on campus or at a facility designated for athletic games/training should be paid a stipend for their time. The stipend should be uniform for each sport and designed to cover expenses not paid by the college/university. “Today’s athletes in some sports do not have summers to themselves during which they can earn extra spending money. Many are from homes where money is in short supply. This stipend should cover recreation, food and, books which are

not furnished by their school. “As a non-athlete attending college from a poor home I remember many days where I existed on one candy bar all day in order to have bus fare for my trip home. I can understand why some kids are forced to sell their jerseys in order to pay for a weekend date. “Sure, they get a free education that others pay dearly for, but their life should not be that of a total drudger. And, need I mention the money they bring in at some schools. “Because some schools lose money on athletics, to pay or not pay should be voluntary and the amount set by the NCAA or other governing sports organization to which the school belongs.” T.J.

“College athletes getting paid for field/court performances? Nope! “This is part of their educational experience and if any compensation is granted that moves into the professional level, and the pricing of a college game or event would be cost prohibitive as it is now with professional sports.

“Maybe a reduction on their tuition maybe, but not compensation!” O.H.R.

“College athletes on scholarship already are paid in the form of an education. Problem is they are also very often enticed into coming to a certain school for other reasons than to play a sport and get an education – boosters offer bribes of money, sex, and various things they shouldn’t be offering.” TRog

“Absolutely not! It's not just that colleges should be places for learning and that the U.S. needs to put a higher value on that than on sport, though that is true. “We have seen the NFL come to an understanding of the dangers of concussion to young players, yet in the last 24 hours I heard that one of our local high school coaches suggested to a freshman quarterback that he not go to the doctor after taking a hit because he would not be able to play for a couple of weeks. I hope that is not true, but I regret that it probably is. “The point is that even the

394 Wards Corner Road Loveland, Ohio 45140 phone: 248-8600 email: clermont@communitypress.com web site: www.communitypress.com

current system puts way too much pressure on young players, their families and coaches to make decisions which are bad for their long-term health. Money to play for college would only make this situation worse. “High school ball should be about having fun, but above all about staying healthy, even if that means taking a couple of weeks off and the team possibly loosing a couple of games – so what – that's not nearly as bad as risking severe neurological damage which may only show up later in life. D.R.

“Years ago I was in favor of paying the athletes, but I have changed my mind on that. As expensive as college is I think that a free education, free meals and boarding is a pretty good deal. “I don't think they need new cars and the like, besides that if they are that good they will leave in a couple years and that little bit of money they get would not hold them there there anyway. “My advice to all college athletes would be to stay in college and get your degree.”

OCTOBER 2, 2013 • COMMUNITY JOURNAL • B3

Rita shares potato salad, stuffed pepper recipes We were in Pennsylvania this past weekend for the Mother Earth News Fair, where I was a presenter. My topic was Bible herbs and foods for vibrant health and longevity, and it was a well received presentation with lots of interaction with the particiRita pants. Heikenfeld I had RITA’S KITCHEN several different kinds of onions on hand to talk about since onions are mentioned in the Book of Numbers and one of the most healthful veggies. One lady mentioned that onions planted next to cabbage make good garden companions, keeping both healthy. Then another person spoke up about potatoes. “Plant them next to corn and they’ll both do great,” he said. Strangely enough, that’s how we planted our onions this year, not having a clue they were good for each other. Maybe that’s why the onions we dug up for this German potato salad were so tasty. And next year we’ll plant the potatoes next to the corn.

Oktoberfest German potato salad

This is as close as I can get to the recipe of my German mother-inlaw, Clara. Easy and really good. I used red potatoes for this recipe. If you use baking potatoes, which contain more starch, they will soak up more of the dressing. 8 slices bacon (I used thick sliced), cut into little pieces then sauteed (save drippings) 1 heaping cup chopped onion 1-2 ribs celery, chopped (if they’re real long, use one, more can be added if you like) 2 tablespoons flour 2 ⁄3 cup cider vinegar or to taste 1 cup water 1 ⁄3 cup sugar or to taste Salt and pepper About 8 cups sliced cooked potatoes (cook, then slice into 1⁄4-inch pieces)

Cook onion and celery in about 4 tablespoons bacon drippings until tender, but don’t let onion brown. Celery may still be crisp. Sprinkle

Rita’s recipe for German potato salad is based on that of her mother-in-law.THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD

flour over and blend. Mixture may be a bit lumpy. Add vinegar and water and cook, stirring until bubbly and slightly thick. Stir in sugar, cook about 5 minutes or so. Stir in potatoes and bacon, heat through, stirring to coat potatoes. Season. Serve warm or room temperature. May be made a couple days ahead.

Slaw stuffed peppers

For the Eastern Hills Journal and Price Hill Press readers who remembered buying these at local delis. This recipe is over 30 years old and is from a Farm Journal cookbook, so it should be authentic. You can cut it in half. And does anybody besides me remember calling bell peppers “mangoes?!” 12 whole green bell peppers 4 quarts water 1 ⁄4 cup salt 2 medium heads cabbage, finely shredded

⁄4 cup salt 4 oz. pimentos, diced 51⁄4 cups sugar 6 cups water 6 cups cider vinegar 11⁄2 teaspoons whole cloves 5 sticks cinnamon 11⁄2 tablespoons whole allspice 11⁄2 teaspoons salt 1

Slice tops off peppers and remove seeds. Soak overnight in solution of 4 quarts water and 1⁄4 cup salt. Drain. Combine cabbage and 1⁄4 cup salt and let stand overnight. Drain well. Mix pimentos and cabbage. Fill peppers. Tie tops on with thread. Put in 8-quart crock. Combine sugar, water, vinegar and spices in big pan. Bring to a boil and cook 10 minutes. Pour hot solution over peppers and weigh them down. Marinate at least 1 week at room temperature. To serve, cut peppers in quarters.

Readers want to know

Fluffy meringue: “If a little bit of egg yolk gets into my whites when I make meringue, and if I remove it, will the whites still whip up?” This is a tricky one. If there’s just a teeny bit of yolk and you can get it all out, the whites seem to beat up fine. But I would only do that if I had no other eggs. And it may not work in all recipes. Egg whites must be completely fat-free to whip properly. And the bowl you whip them in should be, too. When in doubt, wipe out the bowl with a bit of vinegar to remove any traces of fat, rinse and dry. You’ll get better volume with room temperature whites.

LIFE

OCTOBER 2, 2013 • COMMUNITY JOURNAL • B5

Honey bees took over the porch Howdy Folks, A week ago at 3 a.m. I was up and went to the kitchen door and let Chessy in; she likes to be in the house when it’s cold. She likes to curl up by Ruth Ann's legs and sleep. She doesn't like to come in the house when it is warm outside. Chessy the other day came in and laid on my lap for a long time. She has her own disposition when she wants to cuddle she will, but when she doesn't want to forget it! Wednesday after the cardiac rehab we went to the Batavia Township Park for the P.E.R.I. picnic and meeting. There was a speaker from O.P.E.R.S. ( Ohio Public Employee's Retirement System). This lady was from Westerville. She answered lots of questions for the folks at the picnic. The report on the secretary Lois was good, the entire group keeps her in their prayers and all are hopeful she will get better so she can attend the meetings. Last week I took honey out of the bee hives. I had six frames that I put in a plastic tub and set them in the basement and did not spin them out. On Thursday morning we spun the honey out and put the frames back in the tub. It was dribbling rain; I don't like to work with the honey bees when it is raining. I set the tub on the porch but didn't put the lid on. Then we went to the Grange Hall to meet with the furnace repair man. When we got home about two hours later the porch was full of honey bees; it looked like a full hive. When we left there were a few bees in the

tub so someone told the other bees about the free honey. I put my honey bee coat and George gloves on Rooks and took OLE FISHERMAN the tub in a wheel barrow and went and put the frames back in the hives. They are making honey so they should have enough honey to live all winter. We got seven pints this last time. We have a couple to sell along with black raspberry plants. We picked some green beans in a bed we built along the garage, it is 8 feet long. While we were over at Grants Farm last Friday we got some onion sets. They are just about gone for the year. The bags were hanging in the barn some were dried up. We got enough to set a bed that is eight feet long and 2 1/2 feet wide. We should have some green onions yet this fall along with some more green beans. The ones we picked will make a good meal for us. It is amazing how much you can raise in a small space. I want to build another bed along side of the lumber shed. The counter in the kitchen looks good. Ruth Ann hasn't taken the jars to the basement yet. There are canned green beans, honey, peach jelly and relish; that looks good enough to eat and that we will do! While Ruth Ann and I were setting the bed of onions Ruth Ann had a chair to set in. When she got up to get more sets Chessy took over her chair. This cat is some-

thing else, we love her. Friday evening we went to some folks at Nicholsville for a picnic. There was a good crowd with lots of good food like country folks make. Thanks Gary and Diane. Ruth Ann and I went to a family reunion Sunday afternoon at the Nause home on Burdsal Road. I grew up with several of the Nause family in Newtonsville. Ruth Ann went to school with some of them too. They are good folks; hard working. We thank Jerry and his lovely wife Sandy for the invitation. They sure have a beautiful farm and home. Jerry is very involved in the O.V.A.M. and does a lot of work on the grounds especially the sawmill. The Faith Tabernacle Church on Bauer Road out of Owensville will have a church yard sale, Oct. 4 and 5. All the proceeds from this will go toward the Christmas for Kids. It costs $50 to supply each child with Christmas gifts. They have helped more than 150 in the past two years. They will also have a singing coming up sometime in October. Watch for that too. A telephone number you can reach them is 659-5806. We got word this past week that the Grange will no longer be collecting used batteries. The company notified them that at the end of this year they will quit giving the school money for them. We thank all of you for your donations. The Old Bethel M.E. Church Homecoming will be Sunday, Oct. 6, at 2 p.m. Come and hear some good music by the Kinner

Express and John Hale and enjoy reminiscing with friends. Remember the Pumpkin Run at the Clermont County Fairgrounds, sponsored by the Northeastern Lions Club held Oct. 4-6. The Monroe Grange

Card Party will be Saturday, Oct. 5, at 7 p.m. This is open to the public and the game is Euchre. For more information you may call the Rooks at 734-6980. 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.
