Efforts are under way to assist eight people who were left homeless by a Amelia house fire early Sunday, Nov. 14. Union Township firefighters were called back to the home at 28 E. Main St. about 8:45 a.m. Monday, Nov. 15, to put out a smoldering mattress at the scene, said Fire Chief Stan Deimling. The American Red Cross is helping the family. “We are taking care of their immediate needs such as food, clothing and shelter,” said Jason Oyer, disaster operations coordinator for the American Red Cross office in Cincinnati. “If there is a need for medicine, we will assist with that.” Oyer said the victims will be assigned a Red Cross case worker to assist with long-term needs. Fred Stewart, owner of Stewart’s Shoe Repair at 7B W. Main St., Amelia, said he will be collecting items at his shop to help the family. His son, James Stewart,

He said all his son’s possessions, including his cell phone, were destroyed in the fire. Rick McCarty, director of Grace and Mercy Outreach Inc., 17 W.

help the family. “They need everything – personal items, baby formula, diapers,” McCarty said. “We hope to replace everything they lost.” The fire broke out about 8:45 a.m. Sunday at the two-story home. “The eight occupants of the home were awakened by a passing motorist who saw smoke coming from the house and beat on

Mark Jackson of Amelia said he saw smoke coming out of the house while he driving to services at Amelia United Methodist Church. He called 911, stopped and began beating on the front door of the house. He said other passersby also stopped and began beating on windows. He said he was “sure glad” the family got out unharmed. Deimling said the fire started in a utility room on the first floor. The cause is under investigation. The fire caused significant damage to the house. Damage to the structure was estimated at $75,000, with the loss of contents estimated at $10,000, the chief said. “It’s probably a total loss,” Deimling said. He said the fire traveled quickly throughout the open walls of the 150-year-old house, which had no fire stops. There were no working smoke detectors in the home.

New memorial honors vets By John Seney jseney@communitypress.com

A new memorial in Batavia honoring those who served in the Korean War was dedicated Veterans Day. The 4-by-4 foot granite monument was unveiled in front of the Clermont County Courthouse Nov. 11 by Walter McMillin, a Korean War veteran from Nicholsville. The memorial is inscribed with the words “Lest We Forget, Freedom Is Not Free” and “Honoring Those Who Served.” The monument has the emblems of all branches of the armed services across the bottom.

“Everything happens here at the courthouse. That’s where we wanted it,” said Bob Derr, a Korean War veteran and member of the Clermont County Veterans Service Commission. Derr said the decision to establish the memorial came out of discussions between him and Dan Bare, director of the veterans commission, about the need for a Korean War memorial in Clermont County. The dedication comes on the 60th anniversary of the Korean War, which began when North Korean forces invaded South Korea in 1950. The United States, along with other United Nations

countries, came to the aid of South Korea. Several dozen Korean War veterans attended the dedication ceremonies. County Commissioner Bob Proud read a proclamation declaring the week of Nov. 8 through Nov. 14 as Veterans Awareness Week, “The veterans made the country and world more safe,” Proud said. “Their sacrifices will always be remembered by a grateful nation.” The dedication was followed by the annual Veterans Day Parade down Main Street in Batavia.

Holiday-themed banners will be displayed in the village of Amelia this year rather than lights. Mayor Leroy Ellington said the lights displayed on street poles in the past are old and in need of repair or replacement. He said it would cost about $2,400 for the village to put up the lights this year, including the cost of electricity and labor to install and remove the lights. Ellington suggested the village instead buy 24 vinyl banners at a cost of $1,908. The banners can be customized with Amelia’s logo to make them unique. They also are mildew and water resistant and can be used again, he said. “It should cost less,” Ellington said. Unlike the electric lights, there is no ongoing cost once the banners are purchased, he said. The money for decorations already was in the budget, Ellington said. He said it was important to have some sort of holiday decoration in spite of the village’s tight budget.

“We’re still a community,” Ellington said. Council member Derrick Campbell said the old lights were “pretty pitiful” and favored the banners. He said the banners would look nice during the day. The council voted 5 to 1 to purchase the banners, with the motion amended to consider multiple designs. Council member Chuck Thacker cast the vote in

Pierce Township to charge fee for garage sales By John Seney jseney@communitypress.com

Residents in Pierce Township will soon have to pay a fee to conduct a second garage sale in one year. Under guidelines proposed by Township Zoning Administrator Donna Cann, residents were to be allowed two garage sales a year,

gested a compromise: Make the first garage sale permit free and charge $10 for the second. Knoop’s motion passed 2-1, with Trustee Bonnie Batchler supporting the plan and Conrad voting no. “Let’s try it out, but be prepared to make adjustments,” Knoop said. Cann asked township trustees

with a $10 permit required. Trustee Gregg Conrad opposed the fee for a garage sale permit. “I feel we’re nickel-and-diming it,” he said. Cann said the zoning resolution says a permit is required for garage sales, but does not specify the cost. That decision is left to the trustees. Trustee Christopher Knoop sug-

to approve the revised schedule of zoning permit fees for garage sales, ATM machines, amateur radio stations, roadside stands, carports, structures for keeping rabbits and chickens. Cann said most of the permit fees remain the same, but some new fees were added to conform with the new resolution. Cann said the fee schedule will

Pierce narrows field for service manager By John Seney jseney@communitypress.com

Pierce Township has narrowed the number of applicants for a new serv-

ice manager to six candidates. Administrator David Elmer told the township trustees Nov. 9 he received about 50 applications for

the job. Pierce Township Service Manager Daryl Berry announced his retirement in September after 30 years of service, effective the end of the year. The applicants were narrowed to six candidates by Elmer and Berry. Elmer said the first round of interviews were conducted by an interview

panel of Elmer, Berry, Trustee Bonnie Batchler and Law Director Frances Kelly. “Our goal is to quickly narrow it down to one or two finalists,” Elmer said. Batchler asked if Elmer could bring two candidates before the trustees, “so the board has a choice.” Elmer said he would give the board a choice of two candidates.

Clermont County joins regional alert system By John Seney jseney@communitypress.com

Clermont County commissioners voted Nov. 10 to join a system that will alert residents by phone of terrorist attacks or natural disasters. The system, called Codespear, is operated by Hamilton County with funding from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. “There is no direct cost to Clermont County,” Administrator David Spinney said. Commissioner Ed Humphrey said the system provides outward dialing to all land line phones in an affected area in case of an emergency. Users of cellular phones eventually can be added to the system. There will be computer terminals at the

Clermont County and U n i o n To w n s h i p dispatch centers to access the system. Humphrey “ D i s patchers are attending preliminary training in the system,” Humphrey said. He said the system should be in operation shortly. “It’s a great deal for us,” Humphrey said. “We’re taking advantage of a regional resource.” The system is being offered to counties in Southwest Ohio, Northern Kentucky and Southeast Indiana.

Society of Colonial Wars sends teacher to Williamsburg

Seven Hills School seventhgrade American history teacher Doug Huff was selected by The Society of Colonial Wars in the State of Ohio to participate in the Teacher Institute in Early American History at Colonial Williamsburg this summer. The society promotes the study of American colonial history and sponsors one teacher each year. New Richmond resident Dewey Hollister serves on the society’s

council. At Colonial Williamsburg, Huff was exposed to the ideas and realities of colonial times and also sampled some aspects of it himself. He tried on hats at a shop and saw how slaves lived on a plantation. He watched a construction crew building with tools from the colonial era. “People had to do manual labor no matter how hot it was,” Huff

said. The coolest day during his Williamsburg visit hit 96 degrees. “Williamsburg did a great job of covering every aspect of colonial society. I got a thorough idea of what it was like. The Teacher Institute is a top-notch program, very intense. I’ll recommend it to other history teachers,” he said. For more information about The Society of Colonial Wars in the State of Ohio, visit colonialwarsoh.org.

Batavia Rotary recognizes Ewing as October Student of the Month

Summit Country Day School students were recently welcomed back to a new school year with the St. Julie Sunflower Patch. Students seen here showing off some of the sunflowers are, front row from left, Gus Schlomer of Delhi, Jamie Gieseke of Hyde Park, Kendall Hamilton of Fairfield and Ingrid Kindel of Hyde Park; back row, Emily Taylor of Amelia and Gabby Castellini of Hyde Park.

Summit students get sunny surprise on first day The recent return to Summit Country Day School was made special by a group of first graders who planted sunflower seeds along the driveway on the last day of school before summer break. Students in Ceil Johnson’s class planted what has become the St. Julie Sunflower Patch. A few seeds developed into fully blooming sunflowers now towers over a colorfully-painted bench installed by Lower School art teacher Jan Wiesner. Both teachers say that they use the sunflower as inspiration in their classes; Johnson’s students paint fingerprint sunflowers in religion class. The sunflower patch is small, but it bears a reminder from St. Julie Billiart, founder of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur who

started this private Cincinnati school 120 years ago. She said, “Just as the sunflower turns always to the sun, we should always turn towards God.” The flower garden also calls to mind St. Julie’s educational philosophy on how to help children blossom. St. Julie held that the best education is based on personal knowledge and understanding of each child. “The fundamental principle behind a Notre Dame education is developing a well-rounded child,” said Interim Head of School Rich Wilson. “If we can develop a child to his or her fullest potential academically, socially, spiritually, physically and artistically, then grace and wisdom are sure to follow.”

One high school student from Batavia High School is honored at the first meeting of each month during the school year by the Batavia Rotary Club. These students live their lives in a manner that exemplifies the Rotary motto of “Service Above Self.” Cassie Ewing was honored as the club’s Batavia High School “Student of the Month” for October 2010. Ewing is being recognized for her service in the school community and Clermont County. Jamie Corrill, Batavia Local School District assistant superintendent and Batavia High School principal, said, “Cassie is one of the many examples of Batavia’s student leaders who are committed to their family and school community and for their dedication as a leader in and outside the classroom.” Ewing is planning on attending Liberty College upon graduation. At Batavia, Cassie is active in all aspects of the high school experience. She has served as a role model for her peers and for younger students. She has volunteered her time to work with many charitable organizations in the community and encourages her peers to become involved in giving back to their school and community.

College Board recognizes several CCDS students Forty-five Cincinnati Country Day School students have been named Advanced Placement Scholars by the College Board in recognition of their achievement on the college-level AP Examinations taken in May 2009 and prior. Nationally, only 18 percent of the 1.5 million students who take the exams perform at sufficiently high levels to earn the distinction of AP Scholar. The 45 CCDS students who earned this distinction represent 38 percent of the CCDS classes of 2010 and 2011. “Our community is proud of the students’ academic achieve-

JOURNAL

Remembering fallen fellow soldier 42 years later Recently my wife Connie and I took a trip to Beallsville, Ohio, located in Monroe County, population 402. Beallsville is a beautiful small town where most people know one another, friendly acknowledgments are common as people pass on the sidewalks and one building still accommodates all students from K through grade 12. In some ways time has stood still in a community that looks like ours did not so long ago before interstate highways, ongoing development and progress as we know it. Many folks make their living in the coal mines or by farming the countryside that adjoins West Virginia. I had made arrangements by

telephone to meet with Donna O at the veteran’s park, which was on a hilltop as we entered town. Maybe it was my imagination Dan Bare but it seemed to Community be the highest Journal guest point within the One columnist community. would sense it was placed there by design to symbolize the importance of the men and women who served in uniform. Connie and I made our way to the pavilion where Donna was waiting. She was accompanied by a couple of

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Trustees are public servants

The Union Township trustees voted unanimously in 2010 to set their own pay “at the maximum compensation permitted per the Ohio Revised Code.” The trustees receive $20,568 per year. For January through September 2010 the trustees have been in session for a total of 28.82 hours. This makes their average pay $535 per hour. Not bad for part-time work as a “public servant.” To be fair, the trustees likely have some preparation time outside of the public meetings. If they have one hour of preparation for each hour of meeting, their pay averages $267 per hour. If they

have two hours of preparation for each hour of meeting, their pay averages $178 per hour. Wouldn’t it be nice if all of the taxpayers in Union Township had such lucrative part-time jobs? Now that the elections of 2010 are behind us, our work has only just begun. We need to continue to make sure we have the best fiscal conservatives representing us at all levels of government. In 2011, one of our Union Township trustee positions will be elected. I suggest we elect someone willing to be a public servant by volunteering their time for the twice monthly meetings.

her friends since she really didn’t know me. While Donna and I had never previously met and had only talked briefly by telephone we had an instant connection. After an emotional visit, Donna escorted Connie and I to the Vietnam Memorial. It contains the names of six young men from Beallsville killed in Vietnam. Beallsville gained unwanted national attention between 1966 and 1971 by having suffered the largest per-capita loss of life in the Vietnam War. Finally, we made our way to the adjoining hillside that overlooked the school and football field. From this vantage point I could see several young football players practicing. They were carefree and happy while enjoying

some of the fruits of this great country that many men and women have fought and died for including those from Beallsville. This would be our final stop. You see, this was the cemetery where Donna’s brother Richard was buried 42 years ago. Richard was killed May the 30, 1968, Memorial Day, at Gia Dinh Province. I was standing next to Richard at that moment but was only wounded. Richard possessed a small town friendly attitude and personality that conflicted with the harshness of war. He was a great soldier who represented his country, community and family in a most honorable way and I think of him virtually every day of my life.

Tips for a safe school year Now that students are back in school, I wanted to remind everyone, again, about how to keep the school year safe. Nationwide, an estimated 24 million students go to school on a school bus as do the majority of students in Clermont County. School buses are built to be noticeable and have extensive safety features to garner the attention of drivers. Flashing red lights and a stop sign which extends from the bus will alert drivers that the bus is in the process of stopping and picking up or dropping off children. Motorists need to slow down and stop at least 10 feet from the bus. Failure to do so could result in a traffic citation. Sheriff’s deputies are strongly encouraged to monitor school zones for those exceeding the 20 mph posted speed limit and will issue traffic citations when appropriate. Bus drivers also are encouraged to report violations to law enforcement. This means a speeding or reckless driver could still be facing a warning or a penalty even though a law enforcement

officer did not witness the alleged offense. It is wise for drivers to be cautious when approaching bus stops. High school classes Chief Deputy begin earlier, so Rick Combs many times students Community these are at the bus Press guest stop before columnist dawn and in rural areas, where there are no sidewalks, it can be difficult to see children even in broad daylight. Drivers should be alert when leaving driveways as smaller children could be in the path of the vehicle. Bright coats and clothing (yellow, orange, etc.) are best for younger children, making them visible while waiting in dark locations for a bus pickup, of course getting them to wear those items is another story. Kids playing around or not paying attention at the bus stop could result in them being in the roadway in the path of a moving

CHATROOM Last week’s question

Do you think the new Republican-controlled House of Representatives will be more effective or less effective than the current House? Why? “Effective? Probably not, at least in the early months. Whatever the House passes has to get through a Democratic majority in the Senate and potential presidential veto. “A bill originating in the Senate with a sizeable minority has a leader whose announced objective is to limit the current president to one term. Hardly a recipe for effectiveness anywhere, until (or unless) the stalemate becomes so pronounced the public gets vocal about it.” F.N. “I truly do not think that even though Republicans have achieved a majority in the House that this will give them power to do what they believe should be done. (For example, repealing the Obamasponsored health care legislation.) “The reason is simple: the Senate still has a Democrat majority, and will most likely oppose the House; and Obama has more power than all 535 members of Congress in that he can veto any legislation that he doesn’t like. “If the House dares to propose

outright repeal of the health-care law, and it should reach Obama’s desk, you can bet money that he’ll veto it. “Of course, this lack of conclusive power by the GOP will result in charges of incompetence by the Democrats when the next two years have elapsed, just as they blamed Bush for bad things that happened during his administration, even though he had to contend with a Democrat-controlled Congress.” Bill B. “The party of ‘No!’ becomes the party of ‘Huh?’ As the majority party of the House, they will now have to actually do something. “It will be interesting to see if they begin to address the important issues that they’ve been essentially ignoring for the past two years. “Wouldn’t it be a pleasant surprise to see some cooperation? Early signs indicate it may be so.” B.G. “This is an odd question because the current House of Representatives has been very effective as legislators. “They brought us ‘"stimulus,’ cash for clunkers, the home buyers credit, health-care reform, and they even passed cap-and-trade for carbon, although the Senate failed to pass it.

“But all those laws have spent huge amounts of borrowed and printed money, while making our economy much worse than it was. So the new Republican House of Representatives needs to undue as much of the above that they can until a new Congress and president can finish the job in 2013. If they are successful they will be effective. “Also, there are many Democrats up for re-election in 2012 in the Senate, so they may be able to pass some laws with their help. I just hope and pray that the nation can hold things together until 2013.” T.H. “They will be more effective if they can pass the FairTax!” S.B. “No. A Republican House and a Democratic president and Democratically controlled Senate will result in two more years of stalemate.” D.F.B. “Let’s see, Republicans have had control of the Senate since 1995 except for two years when there were an equal number of Republicans and Democrats (200102, 2007-08). “They have had control of the House from 1995 through 2007 and control of the White House from 2000 through 2008. “We have had two wars, big tax

cuts that also resulted in big deficits, 2 collapses in the stock market, failure to adequately regulate the financial markets, a collapse in the housing market and massive unemployment. Health care and college costs have gone through the roof. “Can we really believe that the ‘new,’ more Republican-leaning Congress will do much more than pass gas at a bean-eating contest. “What great suggestions, cut taxes so we can reduce the deficit. Cut government spending so we can stimulate job growth. “Am I the only one to see that the Congressional emperor has no clothes?” F.S.D. “It’s my hope that they would be more effective. At this point it’s a toss up. “But, we must remember most politicians are just that – politicians. They tell us what we want to hear. We elected them. “Then they go to the hill and vote a completely different way.” J.R.W. “What did the current House do besides spend our money? Not much. “If the new House of Reps. can’t get anything done I’m sure they will be walking the unemployment line, also followed by the Senate

I remember him always talking about his sister Donna that he affectionately referred to as “Sis.” For many years I considered trying to call Donna. Something of late pushed me to follow through with this chapter of my life. We both placed flowers on Richard’s grave along with two small American flags. We prayed knowing this is part of Gods plan. Somehow it seemed better, at least in the moment, finally meeting Sis and watching those young men play a silly game without fear and concern. I think Richard would be happy. Danny D.

vehicle. This is one reason why I always suggest parents supervise younger children walking to or waiting at a bus stop. I know in my neighborhood there were a couple parents who volunteered to keep a watchful eye on our children, something I appreciated when my girls were younger. Bus drivers and district administrators work very hard to keep the buses on schedule. Children riding a bus should arrive at the bus stop at least five minutes prior to scheduled pick up. After school, teachers and school administrators work very hard to get students to their buses on time to avoid delays. After arriving home, if children are going to be alone they should keep the doors locked, and comply with a check-in system so parents or guardians can be sure they have arrived safely. If possible, it is a good idea to have neighbors or trusted friends who could check in with children known to be home alone as an added safety advantage and to give parents peace of mind. Rick W. Combs is the chief deputy with the Clermont County Sheriff’s Office.

Local Residents in Amazement Yesterday As Collectors Provide A Stimulus Package to Cincinnati & Covington! By KEN MCINTOSH STAFF WRITER

ICCA will be placing ads in newspapers, radio and running television spots this week asking people to bring in any old silver and gold coins made before 1965. Those that do bring in their coins will be able to speak with collectors one on one and have their coins looked at with an expert set of eyes. With the help of these ICCA members offers will be made to those that have coins made before 1965. Offers will be made based on silver or gold content and the rarity of the coins. All coins made before 1965 will be examined and purchased including gold coins, silver coins, silver dollars, all types of nickels and pennies, Those that decide to sell their coins will be paid on the spot. If you are like a lot of people you might have a few old coins or even a coffee can full lying around. If you have ever wondered what they are worth, now might be your chance to find out and even sell them if you choose. They could be worth a lot according to the International Coin Collectors Association also known as ICCA. Collectors will pay a fortune for some coins and currency for their collections. If they are rare enough, one coin could be worth over $100,000 according to Eric Helms coin collector and ICCA member. One ultra rare dime an 1894S Barber sold for a record $1.9 million to a collector in July of 2007. While that is an extreme example, many rare and valuable coins are stashed away in dresser drawers or lock boxes around the country. The ICCA and its collector members have organized a traveling event in search of all types of coins and currency. “Even common coins can be worth a significant amount due to the high price of silver and gold,” says Helms. Washington quarters and Roosevelt dimes and worth many times their face value. Recent silver markets have driven the price up on even common coins made of silver. Helms explains: all half dollars, quarter and dimes made before 1965 contain 90% silver and are sought after any time silver prices rise. Right now it’s a sellers market he said. The rarest coins these collectors are looking

Glen Este boys rely on size, experience

By Mark Chalifoux

mchalifoux@communitypress.com

The Glen Este boys basketball team returns some of their best players from a team that went 15-5 a year ago, and the Trojans should be a team to keep an eye on in the new Fort Ancient Valley Conference realignment. “I’m expecting really good stuff,” head coach Dave Caldwell said. “We’ve got a strong nucleus coming back and we’ve had great practices so far.” Glen Este returns three starters and eight lettermen overall, including standouts Shane Seckman, Mike Bouley and Corey Goedde. The senior trio should be even stronger for Glen Este this season. Goedde led the Trojans in scoring last sea-

PROVIDED

Glen Este boys’ basketball players Corey Goedde, Mike Bouley and Shane Seckman will lead the way for a strong Trojans team this winter. son with 13.7 points per game. Seckman was one of the top shooters on the team and averaged 13.3

points per game. Center Mike Bouley averaged 10.6 points and a team-best 8.2 rebounds per game in

2009-2010 and Caldwell thinks Bouley is an FAVC player of the year candidate this season. “He’s so big and strong and is a very skilled player,” Caldwell said. Junior post player Alex Fultz is also poised for a strong year, according to Caldwell, and should help replace the production of last year’s senior forward Curt Wesp. “I think a lot of teams will key on our big three and I expect him (Fultz) to take the league by storm and have a really big year,” Caldwell said. Glen Este was able to hit the ground running in the preseason as the Trojans have a lot of experience. “A lot of teams get guys to be that good when they

are seniors but we had a lot of really good juniors last year so there isn’t a learning curve, especially because a lot of them also played as sophomores,” Caldwell said. “We don’t have to do much teaching, it’s more just getting into shape and staying healthy. Practices are going really well.” One problem for Glen Este will be replacing point guard Matt Grau. Sophomore Austin Rieck will take over the point guard duties and Caldwell said he may be a more complete player but is not as good a shooter as Grau. Another potential problem for Glen Este will be guarding smaller, faster teams. The Trojans have a considerable amount of size, which will make them

tough to guard, but the Trojans might have trouble keeping up with quicker teams. “With our size, we’re not the fastest team in the world,” Caldwell said. “We’d like to be a man-toman team, but we’ll probably have to play a lot of zone.” Milford and Walnut Hills should be two of the biggest challengers for Glen Este in the new FAVC East division. Glen Este also plays St. Xavier in a big non-conference road game. “On paper, this should be my best team,” Caldwell said. “We were hoping to be in a position to compete for a league title when these kids were seniors, and right now we’re on pace to be a player in the league.”

Other area boys’ teams Amelia

The Amelia boys will have to replace their top two scorers from a year ago but will be led by senior Tanner Owens, who averaged 8.9 points per game last season and Justin Andler could be another player to keep an eye on. The Barons went only 2-19 in ’09-’10 but will be in their first season in the SBAAC this season and should see a much improved record.

Batavia will enter the season with a young team, but overall depth could help the Bulldogs improve on last season’s 4-17 record. Head coach Mike Hatfield, who will enter his 13th season at the helm of the Bulldogs will welcome back senior center Luke Bradburn and sophomore guard Sam Suttles to the starting lineup. Bradburn averaged 8.2 points and 5.1

defensive rebounds per game for Batavia last season. Suttles added 4.5 points per game as a freshman and should add more offense to Batavia’s offense with a year of experience under his belt. Newcomers Alex White (sophomore, forward) and Dillon Gilbert (sophomore, forward) are also expected to make contributions as underclassmen.

McNicholas

McNicholas High School boys basketball made a lot of noise by knocking off BethelTate in the sectional semifinals last season with a three-pointer at the buzzard. The student who sank that shot, Kevin Easley, will return to compete in his senior season for the Rockets. “Kevin’s kind of the quarterback of the team,” head coach Tim Monahan said. “He has so much confidence now, ever since he

hit that shot...he is much more confident in his ability.” Easley averaged 3.1 points per game last season in addition to passing out 3.5 assists per contest at the point guard position. Easley will be joined on the varsity squad by junior guard Drew Hall. At 6-foot-3, Monahan said Hall is capable of lighting up the scoreboard from long distance. “It’s been (some time) since I’ve seen a shooter like this at McNick,” Monahan said. Ryan Haynes is also expected to contribute by solidifying the Rockets’ defense. “He was our best defender last year and he always guarded the other team’s best player,” Monahan said. Monahan added that senior Eric Ernst should help shore up the senior leadership for McNick. The Rockets will also feature newcomers in 6-foot-8 post player Ryan Coldiron, guard

Noah Whittenbarger, as well as sophomore Austin Ernst. Monahan said the Rockets will play up tempo basketball as they try to replicate last season’s success. The second-year McNick coach added that he hopes the memories of last season will stick in the heads of his players. “I think the kids are excited...they saw we could win and you can tell the kids believe in it more,” he said. McNick begins the season at Loveland, Dec. 3, and opens the season at home against St. Henry, Dec. 4.

New Richmond

Second-year New Richmond head coach Brian McMonigle believes the Lions will see improvement from a year ago, when the squad finished with a 5-15 record. The Lions will be limited on varsity experience and only return one starter from last

year in Steven Binder. Binder averaged 5.6 points during the 2009-2010 campaign. McMonigle added that speed and shooting will be a strength for New Richmond throughout the season.

Williamsburg

The Wildcats will feature a senior-laden team that has experience playing the varsity level. Williamsburg head coach Dan Mckibben is confident his squad can compete for the SBAAC National Division title. The Wildcats will welcome back guard Elliott Young, forward Kendal Young, guard Matt Richardson, guard Kevin Keeton and forward Jason Zavislak back to the varsity squad. Mckibben is also confident that newcomer Jacob Herren will see significant minutes at the point guard position.

MARK CHALIFOUX/STAFF

Williamsburg High School’s Tara Dennis will be one of many players that will attempt to help the Wildcats knock off Georgetown for the SBAAC National Division title.

Williamsburg High School girls’ basketball coach Ken Lowe is ready for his team to compete for a Southern Buckeye Athletic and Academic Conference Championship. “(We expect) to challenge Georgetown for a league title,” Lowe said. “Dethroning them would be huge for the program...” Lowe knows that knocking out Georgetown (last season’s SBAAC National champs), will be no easy task. “I respect them because of the way they play the game...and they have a great coach in Bernie Cropper,” Lowe said. The Wildcats will welcome back four returning starters from last year’s team that finished 12-9. Those individuals will play an integral role for Williamsburg if the school is going to have a shot at the top of standings. The Wildcats will welcome back junior power forward, Tara Dennis, junior guard Heidi McManus, senior guard Molly Bruns, and senior forward Rachel Meisberger to the starting rotation. “It’s huge to have them all back...by having the four starters (return) means a lot to us,” Lowe said. As a sophomore, Dennis led the team in scoring by averaging 14.2 points per

Amelia

The Amelia High School girls are tasked with replacing one of the best scorers in program history in Morgan Sperry, who averaged 15.2 points as a senior in ‘09-10. The Barons should return junior guard Kymmy Simon, who was second on the team in scoring with 9.2 points per game last season. Senior guard Brianna Beasley is another talented returner, as she averaged 9 points per game. Amelia went 7-14 last season but should be improved as they move to the SBAAC this season.

Batavia

The Bulldogs will feature a young team for the 2010-2011 season but coach Beth Wolfer said her team is working hard and keeping a positive attitude. The squad will welcome back Sarah Gibson and Maggie Green to the starting lineup. Green was fourth on the team in scoring last year (64 total points), while Gibson was fifth (59 total points). Newcomer McKenna Fraley could also make an impact on the varsity squad.

Senior Lakin Louiso will lead the way, as she averaged a team-best 11.5 points per game a year ago. Glen Este also returns their other top scorers, including Katie Gaskill (7.6 ppg) and Jackie Young (7.6 ppg). Sophomore Hannah Carson is another talented returning starter. Head coach Jeff Click thinks the Trojans can build off the positives from last season. “They showed great character last season and worked hard and kept improving and we had a solid offseason,” Click said. “We are taking that next step now to get back to the success and tradition of this program.”

McNicholas

The Glen Este girls build a solid foundation last season and return four starters from that 7-14 team.

McNicholas High School will attempt to improve on upon last season’s 10-12 record. The squad could sneak up on opposing teams because of the experience their three returning starters bring to the court. Stephanie Krusling, Tricia Walsh and Amanda Conrad will all take the floor for their senior season. McNick head coach Gregg Flammer believes the trio could provide some entertaining basketball for the McNick faithful. “We have three returning starters and they should put points on the board,” Flammer said. Krusling, who plays guard, was the seventh leading scorer in the

game during the 20092010 campaign. Dennis was also a force on defense and was second on the team in rebounds, with 5.6 per contest, in addition to racking up 49 blocks throughout the year. McManus also proved to be a viable offensive threat for the Wildcats during her sophomore season as she averaged 9.2 points per

game. Meisberger also showed she could be a factor on defense by adding 31 blocks to the Wildcats’ total for last season. Williamsburg will also welcome two newcomers to the roster who are expected to contribute significant minutes in sophomores Sarah Wetzel and Becca Chase.

Glen Este

Girls’ Greater Cincinnati League Grey Central Division last season with an 8.5 points per game average. Conrad contributed 5.4 points through 18 games while Walsh added a steady 5.3 points throughout the season. The Rockets should also see significant contributions from senior Michelle Mersman and junior Ali Miller. Miller gained valuable varsity experience last season by playing in six games for the Rockets, while Mersman, who plays guard, averaged steady minutes for McNick throughout her junior year. McNick opens its season at Conner, Nov. 29. The Rockets’ home opener will be against Ursuline, Dec. 4.

New Richmond

New Richmond will seek to build off last season’s 5-16 record and first-round playoff loss to Indian Hill. The front-court combo of Lindsey Blankenship and Reno Frayne should provide stability for the Lions. Blankenship (9.3 points, 6.2 rebounds per game) and Frayne (8.4 points per game) were named Southern Buckeye Athletic and Academic Conference American Division all-stars for their efforts last season.

“They’re going to fit in well because of their passion for the game,” Lowe said. “They both love the game of basketball and are constantly working on their games...They will get valuable playing time for us.” Williamsburg opens up the season against Paint Valley, Nov. 27. The Wildcats begin home play against East Clinton, Dec. 2.

Sports & recreation

Union Twp. man finishes Ironman Brian Hock has never been one to shy away from a challenge. In fact, it’s aspiring for those lofty goals that create environments where he thrives. Take, for example, his running. Brian wasn’t just another casual athlete growing up. He ran his first marathon at age 12 in 4 hours and 47 minutes. In high school, he ran varsity cross country and track at Anderson before going on to do the same at Bowling Green State University. As an adult, he isn’t just another graphic designer. He is the owner of awardwinning Brian Hock Design and one of only 40 designers nationwide selected to participate in Harvard University’s weeklong leadership program “Business Perspectives for Design Leaders.” In 2007 he launched a social networking website for design professionals like himself. It really should come as no surprise then that this philanthropist and board member of the M.E. Lyons YMCA just finished his sec-

Brian Hock of Union Township beams after completing his second Ironman competition and raised more than $1,000 toward the YMCA’s scholarship program in the process. ond Ironman competition and raised more than $1,000 toward the YMCA’s scholarship program in the process. “I tend to respond better to bigger challenges. There’s an allure to them,” he said. “I’m a big believer that anyone can do anything if you train for it.” And he trained hard. Toward the end he was up to 17 hours a week at the YMCA and around the com-

munity. However, no amount of exercising could prepare him for the physical pain of having to endure a 2.4-mile swim followed by a 112mile bike ride before having to complete the distance of an entire marathon with badly bruised feet. “My feet were pulsing when I was on the bike but somehow I pushed through,” he remembers. On any other day he

would have stopped with a prompt visit to a doctor’s office. But he had more than 26 miles left of his journey. He wasn’t about to quit. That’s just not the kind of person he is. “I could barely walk but somehow I had to run,” Brian said. After mile three though, he just couldn’t run any further. So he walked, each step feeling as if tacks were burring into the balls of his feet. By mile 16 both feet were painfully numb. Still, he shuffled several miles before relenting to the strides of a walk. His family was there waiting when he crossed the finish line. His time - 14 hours, 2 minutes and 33 seconds. Was it worth it? “You bet,” Brian said. “I was determined to finish to share with my son another medal from another race. It does mean something special to me. I was able to finish what I started. Sometimes in life we need things to motivate us or to set us back so that we can become stronger or smarter.”

McNicholas High School advanced to the third round of the Division III state football playoffs after knocking off Roger Bacon 31-14 at Goshen High School, Nov. 13.

McNick plays Eaton in the Division III regional final at 7 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 20, at Mason High School’s Atrium Stadium.

HOLIDAY GIVING

One of life’s saddest times: the death of a child When an adult we love dies, we experience a wrenching loss. When a child dies, our heart-rending loss seems also like a theft. A whole lifetime has been stolen as well as all the happy events throughout

that lifetime. Feelings of injustice, anger, sorrow and confusion envelop us. We are left without answers. Through tears we ask the most frequent question of life – why? Such tragedies convince

a few people that there is no God, or that God is not good. Others offer solace in pious expressions, such as, “I guess God took her because he needed another angel.” While well-meaning, such “answers” have distressing implications. At precisely the time that family and friends need to be assured of God’s compassion and presence, God is pointed out in the line-up of possible culprits as the cause of their pain. God did it! Many theologians and clergy shudder at such explanations because they depict a God contrary to the images in the scriptures. God does not arbitrarily take children from their families. God is the One who ultimately heals, raises up, offers fullness of life and unites. “I have come so that they may have life and have it to the fullest.” (John 10:10) So what are we to think about the tragic death of child? In our rational understanding of cause and effect we have difficulty exonerating God from being the cause of tragedies. The friends of Job had a similar difficulty. Basically, they explained the cause of Job’s sufferings by implying, “God did this to you; you must have deserved it somehow. Just curse God and die.” But Job didn’t believe

them. Yes, he was puzzled and angry at God as he struggled with his tragedies. He challenged God to a face to face meeting. Then, after listening closely to what God said, and thinking much, Job finally reached his “answer” in dealing with the mystery of suffering that was touching his life. His answer was to believe all the more in this inscrutable God. Job proclaimed, “Even though he should slay me, still will I trust in him.” (Job 13:15) If there is an “answer” for us who believe in God, it is found in acknowledging our human inability to understand everything. We walk by faith, and not by sight. “The One beyond what is able to be thought,” is how St. Anselm described God. Our intellects and faith are imperfect and limited. We are not the final measure of mystery. It is difficult for us imperfect beings to live in an imperfect world. Life is sometimes secure and predictable. Sometimes it is random, chaotic and unexplainable. We would like to completely understand and control it, but we can’t. What we can do, however, is make a choice between despair and cynicism, or choose faith and trust. People of faith believe that in the beginning, in some unknowable way, God took swirling and chaotic darkness and began bringing out of it life, order, and beauty. God’s creation is not

finished. It is still going on. W e believe Father Lou that in Guntzelman some parPerspectives adoxical and loving way, a child who dies early will experience no disadvantage in the exquisite and timeless eternal life that follows. Of course, we will suffer and grieve their going very much. But they will taste life to the fullest, a life that we will only achieve later when we are united with them. So, we still wonder and ask why, but as we do we entrust our deceased innocent children to the God of life, and wait until – like Job – we find the answer face to face with God. For now, we say to God in the words of poet Anne Porter: To take the place of the child Isaac there was a ram. But for all those others there was no ram and I lay them down at your feet so that you can keep them for me since by myself I am unable to understand them.

Holiday Mail for Heroes

On Veterans Day, the Cincinnati Region of the American Red Cross will kick off the Holiday Mail for Heroes program and invites area residents to send a holiday card that contain messages of cheer and appreciation. The signings will be at the Cincinnati Red Cross Headquarters, 2111 Dana Ave., on the following days: • From 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Thursday, Nov. 11. • From 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Friday, Nov. 12. • From 9:30 a.m. to noon, Saturday, Nov. 13.

Help buy turkeys

St. Vincent de Paul will be providing food for Thanksgiving dinner for over 1,000 local families on Tuesday, Nov. 23. Many people will arrive before dawn and start standing in line at our Outreach Center located in the West End. The goal is to raise $5,000 to buy the necessary turkeys. To donate, visit www.svdpcincinnati.org. The goal is to raise $5,000 so we can secure the necessary turkeys. In addition, due to the fact that the extended unemployment benefits are set to expire in early December. St. Vincent de Paul is already seeing record numbers of people seeking assistance for the first time this year and the expiration of these benefits in the midst of the holidays will only increase the number of families across Cincinnati who are in need.

Even picky eaters will ‘gobble’ down these sprouts Gosh, I have so many recipes to share that I have very little space for my weekly “chat” with you. So I’ll just say have the best Thanksgiving ever, thank the Lord for your abundant blessings, and think of those who may not have someone to celebrate with. Set an extra plate on your table and invite them to share your tradition of food, family and friends.

Rita Heikenfeld Rita’s kitchen

C o o k bacon and nuts in o v e n proof skillet until bacon just begins to crisp and nuts are toasted. Take out of skillet

and set aside. Add sprouts to skillet and season with salt and pepper. Put pan in oven and roast about 30 minutes, add bacon and nuts and continue to roast until the sprouts are cooked through and golden, about 10 to 15 minutes more. Squeeze lemon juice over. Serves four.

Betze’s roasted Brussels sprouts with bacon

Betze, a loyal reader, found the original recipe from Food Network Kitchens and made it her own. “Absolutely delicious,” she said. 2 (10-oz.) packages Brussels sprouts (Betze used fresh) 2 oz. thin sliced bacon, diced 1 ⁄2 cup pecans 1 ⁄2 teaspoon salt Freshly ground black pepper

Yummy Waldorf salad

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Wash and trim sprouts. Cut each sprout in half.

2 pounds seedless red grapes, cut into halves 2 ribs celery, sliced thin 1 cup golden or regular

I can’t claim this as my own. My notes tell me it’s from a reader and I’ve made changes to suit my family. This is so good and perfect for your Thanksgiving table.

Mix together:

raisins or dried cranberries 1 cup chopped English walnuts 3 nice sized apples, peeled and cut up

For dressing mix together:

1 cup mayonnaise 1-2 tablespoons vinegar or more to taste 1 ⁄2 cup sugar 1 cup milk Pour dressing over salad and let sit in fridge at least one hour before serving. Tip from Rita’s kitchen: If you want to prepare this ahead of time, squeeze some lemon juice or sprinkle some Fruit Fresh preservative onto chopped apples and they’ll stay snowy white.

Moist pumpkin bread

For Glenda Hatfield, who wanted a clone of Bob Evans’ pumpkin bread, which she said was very moist. 2 eggs 1 cup brown sugar 1 ⁄2 cup Canola oil 1 ⁄3 cup water 1 (15 ounce) pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling) 13⁄4 cups flour 1 teaspoon baking soda

1

⁄2 teaspoon baking powder ⁄2 teaspoon salt 11⁄2 teaspoons cinnamon 11⁄2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice Optional but very good: Raw or natural sugar for sprinkling on top 1

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Beat eggs lightly and then mix with sugar, oil, water and pumpkin. Separately, mix flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice. Combine wet ingredients with dry ingredients only until just blended. Don’t over mix or bread will have tunnels or be tough after baking. Pour into a sprayed loaf pan. Sprinkle sugar on top. Bake for 55 to 65 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out almost clean. Don’t overbake.

My mom’s pumpkin pie

For those of you who love Frisch’s and Bob Evans’ pies, this comes pretty close. Mom made this with a homemade lard crust.

1 can, 15 oz., pure pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling) 12 oz. evaporated milk 3 ⁄4 to 1 cup sugar 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice 1 ⁄2 teaspoon cinnamon 1 ⁄2 teaspoon salt 2 large eggs, slightly beaten Whisk pumpkin, milk, sugar and spices together. Taste and add more pumpkin pie spice and cinnamon if you want. Add salt and eggs and blend. Pour into pastry-lined pan. Bake at 425 degrees for 15 minutes; lower temperature to 350 degrees and bake 30-35 minutes or until set. Serves eight.

Do-ahead mashed potatoes

Mash 4 to 5 pounds potatoes and season with salt and pepper. Add 8 ounces cream cheese, softened, and 1 cup sour cream. Pour into sprayed 9-by-13 pan. Dot with butter or margarine.

Refrigerate up to three days. Bring to room temperature, tent with foil and reheat in 350- to 375degree oven until hot, about 40 minutes. Or reheat in microwave. Crockpot method: Spray crockpot and put mashed potatoes in. Keep on warm/low a couple of hours. Tip from Rita’s kitchen: Keep regular mashed potatoes warm for hours in sprayed crockpot on warm/low.

a l w a y s shredded corn each year and George used the fodder for feed Rooks and bedding. Ole We covFisherman ered the garden with the manure that had the fodder used as bedding and this sure helped get mulch into the ground. So I raked up a bunch of the corn leaves and shucks and covered the tractor tires, put some around the blackberries, and around other places in the garden. The combine, wind and Good Lord did us a favor, Thanks. Since I am writing about shredding corn we would cut eight acres of corn and shock it. When we started cutting this was done by hand. There were 12 rows of corn in a shock row. When starting the rows of fodder, we cut the fifth and sixth rows, then go in six steps and tie four stocks together to make the gallos, each shock was 12 steps long and 12 rows wide. This may sound confusing to you but this was all done by hand using a corn knife. This was hard work but there were lots of farmers that did this. Last week Ruth Ann and I met some friends at the Riverside Coffee Mill in Batavia for lunch. These folks attended the 20/20 Senior leadership with us, we have been getting together every so often to eat and visit. The Monroe Grange is 95 years old this month. This Grange is very active in community activities and is furnishing a Thanksgiving meal for a family in Monroe Township. We contacted the school and they will give us a name of a family and we will get a complete meal for them. No name will be made public, only Ruth Ann and I will know where to deliver it. The Monroe Grange will hold a big celebration in five years when it is 100 years old and the community will be invited so we will keep you posted. Mark your calendar for Nov. 20, the Goshen Lions Club are having their Holly Fair Craft Show at the Goshen School on Goshen Road. The time is 9 a.m. till 3 p.m. so come over and enjoy the show. We will be there with our bowls, bird feeders, cedar chests, etc. Start your week by going to the church of your choice and praise the good Lord. George Rooks is a retired park ranger. Rooks served for 28 years with the last five as manager of East Fork State Park.

Kathy Pridemore of Batavia displays her award-winning Lynx Shaman doll.

Residents published in doll magazine Amelia doll maker, Kathy Pridemore, Batavia photographer Mark A. Kahles and Batavia freelance writer Summer Tyler worked together to submit an article to an international doll magazine for publication. The trio’s project was printed in the July edition of Doll Collector Magazine, displaying Pridemore’s dolls as the featured artist of the month. “It was an interesting project for collaboration,” said Tyler. “I liked the idea of local artists: A doll maker, a writer and a photographer, working together to master our separate crafts.” The article is a four-page spread and features nine of Pridemore’s dolls. It includes tips from Pridemore on tools for doll making and using natural materials to develop the character of a doll. The dolls highlighted by the magazine are: Fairies, wizards and Pridemore’s award winning Lynx Shaman doll. Tyler met Pridemore at a Fine Arts Fund Sampler Weekend held at UC Clermont College. “I was teaching a class on doll making,” said Pridemore. “Summer asked me if she could write an article about my dolls.” Tyler had noticed Mark Kahles’ photos in an exhibit in a local shop. She contacted him to see if he

would like to be the photographer for the article. Kahles met with Pridemore and photographed a number of her dolls. “The article would never have sold without Mark’s talent for photography. He did close-ups of the sculpting details of each doll,” Tyler said. “We were so fortunate that he agreed to work with us.” Once submitted, it was two years before the article was published. “During our first attempt to sell the article, it was lost by an editor. We resubmitted it and it was quickly accepted,” said Tyler. “The magazine was renamed in between. It was another year before it made the publishing calendar.” The magazine already has generated a number of orders to Pridemore. She was surprised by the immediate results. Pridemore also creates soft cloth dolls. She has exhibited in a number of doll shows in the Tristate. This is Tyler’s first article in an international publication. “It was exciting to see my words on glossy paper with full color photos instead of on newsprint in black and white. Visually it’s so different,” said Tyler. Kahles specializes in nature and fine art photography. Visit his website, www.markkahlesphoto.com.
