Boy dreams of meeting Mickey

At first glance, it’s almost impossible to believe Chandler Ainsworth is battling a deadly disease. The 4year-old runs around his parents’ house with his brothers, re-enacting scenes from his favorite Disney movies and jumping on the couch. But if you look closer you’ll notice he’s breathing a little harder than his brothers, that he’s sweating more than he should. FULL STORY, A4

The Clermont County Engineer’s Office was looking for public comments at an open house Aug. 5 on plans to rehabilitate the covered bridge on StonelickWilliams Corner Road. They got plenty. About 50 people packed the meeting room at the Stonelick Township offices in Owensville to hear about the plans and voice opinions. Most of the concerns were about the potential for increased heavy truck traffic on the bridge. Preserving the historic integrity of the bridge also was a major concern. County Engineer Patrick Manger said something needed to be done with the bridge, which was built in 1878, to keep in from deteriorating and eventually being unusable. Manger said a number of plans were considered. The preferred plan would involve a $1.1-million rehabilitation that would preserve the original look of the bridge and add 50 years to its life. Grants from the federal National Historic Covered Bridge Preservation Program and from the Ohio-Kentucky-Indiana Regional Council of Governments would pay for the project. The work, which could begin in early 2011, would include the removal and replacement of the roof and siding, additional structural support, deck replacement and a new lighting system with traffic signals. The span would be closed to traffic during the project, which could take four to six months. The project would increase the weight limit on the bridge, now restricted to three tons, to unrestricted, which would allow trucks up to 40 tons. Many residents thought this would increase traffic on the road and destroy the peace and quiet of the valley. Catherine Rush-Ossenbeck, who lives on Stonelick-Williams Corner Road near the bridge, was concerned about more accidents

Clermont County Engineer Patrick Manger explains plans to rehabilitate the Stonelick-Williams Corner Road Covered Bridge at an open house in Owensville Aug. 5. on the road because of the increased traffic. She said she would like to see the rural nature of the area preserved. “That’s why we live here,” she said. She also was concerned about preserving the historic nature of

Latrines razed, playground to be moved By Kellie Geist

Visitors to Goshen Community Park might want to use the rest room before they leave the house. The township has demolished the latrine at the park. “It was a glorified outhouse, not really bathrooms at all,” said Ray Snyder, township administrator. Snyder said the latrine was located on the property when the

township purchased the land in the 1980s. Snyder recommended the latrine be demolished because it was becoming a hazard, he said. “Through the years, mother nature has taken it’s toll. (The latrine) was in such a state of disrepair that it couldn’t really be fixed,” Snyder said. “It was becoming a liability and I wanted it removed.” The Goshen Township Service Department demolished the latrines in late July and filled the

the bridge and would rather see a plan to restore the bridge rather than completely renovate it. Shirley Shipley, who lives in Owensville and is vice president of the Owensville Historical Society, said her main concern was that if major changes are made to the

bridge, it would be taken off the National Register of Historic Places. She thought repairs could be made to the bridge without harming its historic status. Township Trustee Skeets Humphries said there was “a tremendous amount of feeling” in the community for the bridge. He would like to see the engineers come back at another meeting with different alternatives. He suggested the bridge be strengthened to handle 12 tons, but the limit kept at 3 tons. “I don’t think the bridge has to be altered,” Humphries said. “Strengthen it without altering it.” Manger said no final decision has been made and promised to take the opinions of the community into account. Those who attended the open house were given comment sheets to fill out and return to the engineer’s office by Aug. 19. He said another public meeting would be scheduled, probably in September, to address the concerns of the community.

holes with sand. Other than manhours, the demolition didn’t cost the township anything. The latrines were the only restroom facilities located on the Goshen Township Park property and Snyder said there are no plans to build bathrooms at this time. One of the main attractions at the park is the playground, which was donated by the Goshen Chamber of Commerce. Ray Autenrieb, chamber president, said because the chamber is hoping to

move the playground equipment to Marr Park, not having rest rooms at Goshen Community Park won’t be a problem. “Once Marr Park is complete, we hope the (township) maintenance department will take the playground equipment apart and move it to Marr Park,” Autenrieb said. The chamber also is donating two picnic tables for Marr Park, Autenrieb said.

Boy with cystic fibrosis dreams of meeting Mickey By Mary Dannemiller

At first glance, it’s almost impossible to believe Chandler Ainsworth is battling a deadly disease. The 4-year-old runs around his parents’ house with his brothers, re-enacting scenes from his favorite Disney movies and jumping on the couch. But if you look closer you’ll notice he’s breathing a little harder than his brothers, that he’s sweating more than he should. Chandler was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis as an infant. It’s a chronic disease that clogs his lungs and prevents enzymes from helping his body break down and absorb food, making breathing and eating a daily struggle. “We never wanted our

Chandler was there for a routine check-up and doctors discovered the little boy’s disease had wreaked havoc on his lungs. “He had a CT scan that revealed major damage to his lungs and the doctors determined he needed a lung transplant,� Candice said. After visiting doctors in St. Louis, the family was told Chandler had four to six months to live if he did not get a lung transplant. After much deliberation, the family decided not to risk a transplant. That was nearly three years ago. “There are so many side effects and we thought it would trading one set of problems for another,� Can-

Agenda 360: Business leaders discusses need for area talent By Kellie Geist

A talented workforce is needed to attract and retain business in Clermont County. To create and retain those employees is fundamental for economic health. Business and community leaders from around the Tristate gathered at Total Quality Logistics Aug. 4 to talk about the future of the region at Agenda 360’s forum “Connecting the Dots.” This discussion series focuses on the importance of talent to the growth and success of the region. “If we don’t have talent and people who can get it done, we will not be able to attract and retain businesses ... which is so essential to the prosperity of the region,” said Myrita Craig, executive director of Agen-

da 360. Craig said the talent they are seeking most actively includes young professionals in the 20 to 35 age group. Agenda 360 is a group of leaders throughout Greater Cincinnati who are working to make Cincinnati, including Butler, Clermont, Hamilton and Warren counties, a leading metropolitan region for talent, jobs and economy opportunity by 2020. The discussion started with speeches by three panelists: Matt Van Sant, president of the Clermont Chamber of Commerce; Ryan Rybolt, president of Infintech; and Eric Grothaus, vice president of human resources at Total Quality Logistics. The panelists each gave their views on the importance of talent. Sant said Clermont County needs to focus on recruiting and retaining tal-

ent partially because of the county’s changing workplace. “Manufacturing used to be the bread and butter for Clermont County, but things are changing,” Sant said during the forum. “We need to have the ability to present a workforce inventory to satisfy the needs of these new companies.” Van Sant said many companies are requiring a workforce skilled in math, science and technological areas. Each of the panelists agreed that growing, attracting and retaining talent is a multi-faceted effort that requires the county and the region to improve the public schools and encourage college degrees, have a variety of affordable housing options and improve transportation. Grothaus said when he’s

recruiting outside the Greater Cincinnati area, young professionals want to know what the “buzz” is in Greater Cincinnati. The panelists also agreed the area needs to improve the nightlife, culture and entertainment appeal of what they call Cincinnati USA. Overall, the “Connecting the Dots” discussion focused on bringing all the benefits and aspects of the Cincinnati region together to grow, attract and retain talent as well as effectively communicating what the Greater Cincinnati area has to offer. “We’ve been pretty modest, but if we have great characteristics and talents to offer, we have to communicate that,” Craig said. “We have a lot of tremendous dots in this region and we need to work together to connect those dots.”

Milford, Goshen golf back in action By Mark Chalifoux

2009 as well, including freshmen Taylor Ulery and Ali Habermehl and sophomores Nikki Colyer and Erin Mack. “This senior class wants to go out with a title,” Garrison said. “We are definitely a contender for the FAVC championship and if everyone stays healthy we expect to have a really good season. Hopefully we can also advance to the district tournament,” she said.

Local high school golfers are already back on the green. Here’s a look at local teams as they head into the season.


The Milford High School golf team was the co-champion of the FAVC in 2008 and went 12-0 and Milford should be the favorite to repeat in 2009. The team returns three senior standouts, including Nick and Tyler Regueyra and Matt Habermehl. The team has a few promising newcomers, including junior Cody Giles and senior Mark Schuler. Doug Kassen, in his 34th year as head golf coach, said Loveland will be one of the big tests for Milford in the FAVC. “The twins are pretty solid and are competitive with the better players in Ohio, and if they can give us good scores, along with Habermehl, and a few of the

The Goshen High School golf team went 5-10 in 2008 and should be improved in 2009. The team returns four starters, including Tyler Stewart, Aaron Rogers, Kort Dwyer and Chris King. The team finished fourth in the SBAAC tournament in 2008 and head coach Shiloh Ashley wants to see that improve in 2009. CNE did not provide golf team information in time for publication.

Softball teams wanted

Mens and coed softball teams are being sought to play in the first Dennis Johnson VFW Post 6562 softball tournament, at 1596 Ohio 131, Milford. Registration fee is $150 for each team. Registration deadline is Aug. 20. The mens tournament will be Aug. 23-33. The coed tournament will be Aug. 28-29. Call 386-4706.

Baseball tryouts

U15 Force Baseball, formally Foster Force, a three-year-established

AABC team, is looking for a few good players to fill the 2010 roster. Positions available include infield, outfield and pitching. The team is considering merging with another established team. The team is managed by a 12year veteran coach who also runs the Elite Cincinnati High School Baseball program for Champions. About 20 to 30 scholarships are awarded every year. The two assistant coaches are non-parent coaches who have both played college baseball four years each. Tryouts are Aug. 8 at 5100 River Valley Road in Milford, close to Tealtown Ballpark, or call for a private tryout. Call Steve at 200-9346 or e-mail


Hole in one

The Milford High School cross country team has been at the top of the FAVC for the past two seasons and matching it for a third might prove challenging for the Eagles. “We graduated six varsity runners last year who had done a nice job bringing our program back throughout their career. We’re certainly looking at trying to rebuild,” head coach Dave Ackerman said. He said the team’s goal would be to improve the younger runners and to have an average improvement of 45 seconds and that the team would have to work hard in 2009. “Basically you have to find success through hard work and learning to do that is a hard process,” he said. “You are constantly pushing through your pain threshold and pushing yourself to get better.” The Milford girls’ cross country team, however, should stay on top of the FAVC. The team graduated several seniors from its 2008 FAVC championship team but still returns some strong talent. State qualifier sophomore Denielle Telting is back for Milford along with senior Kelly Johnson, Lorin Conti and Kristen Brady. H e a d c o a c h Matthew JorTelting dan said Milford is lacking experience but he’s not too concerned about it. “They do not lack on talent,” he said. “The girls are looking to capture the FAVC-Buckeye title again and make a return trip to the regional meet.”


Both the girls and boys McNicholas High School Cross Country Teams won the Division II District meet in 2008 and both teams should be contenders again in 2009. The team finished fourth in the district and ninth in the regional meet in 2008 and has the talent to improve on both of those finishes in 2009.


The Clermont Northeastern High School cross country team could be competitive in 2009. CNE did not have a full team at the end of 2008 and head coach Scott Wells hopes that changes in 2009. The team has a number of promising runners, including football standout Jacob Hacker, senior Dillon Reynolds, junior Nick Simpson and freshman Gage Teaney. “I want each and every kid to improve throughout the year and actually enjoy distance running,” Wells said. “Once you start running, you get a runner’s high and it’s a good feeling. I want everyone to realize that and turn this into a lifelong hobby.” Wells said one way he’s improving the numbers for the program is by recruiting

athletes from other sports to come out for cross country as well. “Soccer players can still come and run, we’ll work around their schedules,” he said. “We just want to make as much fun out of running that you can.”


The McNicholas High School boys’ cross country team finished 15th in the state in 2008 after finishing fourth at the regional tournament and winning the district championship. The team returns a number of standouts, including 2008 GCL Runner of the Year Jeff Griffiths. Matt Johnson and Joey Schoettelkotte are two other returning seniors. Junior Jacob Boehm is another key returning runner. Juniors David Lawrence and Will Keri and sophomores Adam Zalewski, Aaron Vennemeyer and Daniel Schoettelkotte could also be strong contributors for McNick. Head coach Dan Rosenbaum said the team’s goal is to finish in the top 10 at

state and staying healthy would be the key for the season. The girls’ team finished eighth in the regional meet and return a number of standouts, including the GGCL Runner of the Year Maggie Daly. Catherine Paquette is another key senior for McNick and junior Lauren Clark will be a strong contributor for the Rockets. Sophomores Rebecca Heise and Rachel Waddel are two other runners to keep an eye on in 2009. Other runners who could be big factors include Chelsea Ritter, Teresa Rudy, Brittany Zumach, Maggie Cowens, Amanda Bradley, Erica Luedtke and Rosie Daly. The Rockets will look to defend their GGCL championship and district championship in 2009. “Our big goals are to defend those titles and advance to the state meet,” Rosenbaum said.

Last week’s question

What do you like and dislike about the health care proposals currently before Congress? “Where to start and so little space to respond? “Government run anything is a failure. Medicare and Medicaid are broke. Social Security is broke. These programs are $54 trillion in debt. The federal debt is $12 trillion and Washington can’t wait to spend even more. “What makes anyone believe that the government will do a better job with healthcare? They claim they will miraculously save enough money to pay for the program. The words government and save doesn’t belong in the same sentence. The way they intend to ‘save’ money is to cut payments to healthcare professionals, ration care which means long lines, and to kick the senior citizens to the street. Under the current plan – all private plans will disappear after five years – don’t believe me listen to Obama’s own words when he said this was his goal. “Obama said in 2007 ‘I would hope that we could set up a system that allows those who can go through their employer to access a federal system or a state pool of some sort. But I don’t think we’re going to be able to eliminate employer coverage immediately. There’s going to be potentially some transition process.’ “Ronald Reagan is quoted as saying ‘The most terrifying words in the English language are: I’m from the government and I’m here to help.’ Heed those words because the healthcare plan the government is telling us will help everyone will only hurt us all in the long run.” M.L.B. “For anyone who is for the government-run health care, I ask you to visit a VA hospital. This is an example of the care you will receive when the government runs health care. No thank you!” M.K.K.

This week’s question What are your favorite and least favorite memories from your school days?

Should Major League Baseball reinstate Pete Rose? Why or why not?

“Yes. Michael Vick, who only received a 23-month sentence for dogfighting, is eligible to be reinstated to the NFL and will likely be Every week The playing somewhere this fall. Not Community Journal only was it just gambling on dogasks readers a fighting and financing its operaquestions that they tions, this boil on the buttocks of can reply to via e-mail. society also tortured losing dogs Send your answers to by electrocution, drowning and clermont@community gunshot. What a sick, sociopathic with individual. “chatroom” in the “Pete simply gambled on basesubject line. ball, without any of the barbarianism exhibited by Michael Vick, and he is banned for life. How is that fair? It’s not, and if that is all the punishment Vick received for such revolting acts, then Pete has definitely paid his debt to society. I think most people would agree with this.” L.L.F. “I believe Pete has paid the penalty for his unacceptable activity in betting on baseball. He has established the record and as a result he does belong in the Hall of Fame.” F.J.B. “Truthfully, I don’t care. But it does make me think again, as I have so many times in my life, about why people tend to elevate certain people to virtual sainthood based solely on athletic ability (which is usually something an individual inherits from his/her genetic makeup) or popularity as an entertainer. “In my life, I have known so many wonderful people who have given so much to others in terms of their time and talent, and have remained unknown and unrecognized. “For example, there is a young couple in our parish who have adopted a number of children, assuming lifetime responsibility for their care and development. The couple are white, and the children are black and mixed race. “These people are far more worthy of recognition and attention than any Pete Rose or Michael Jackson.” B.B. “Let me start by saying that President Obama has nothing to do with this topic. Too many times I have read answers to questions in this forum that have nothing to do with the question being asked. Instead the reader is using it as an excuse to go on an Obama tirade. You know who you are. “So to recap. Pete Rose not being in the Hall of Fame is not President Obama’s fault. “As for the question at hand, yes, Pete Rose deserves to be in the Hall of Fame. He deserved to be in a long time ago. And do you really need an asterisk next to his name? “Anyone who follows baseball, and most who don’t, know what he did. But if putting one next to his name gets him in, I’m OK with that. T.Z.

If you live in Goshen and have been to a parade, reunion or fundraiser, odds are very good that you have enjoyed the Goshen Marching Band, under the direction of Mr. “O” (Mike Osseschmidt). Their pride and support of this community is very well known. Now it’s time to show how much you appreciate them and all they do – Go band. The Goshen Marching Warriors have a wonderful, “once-in-a-lifetime” opportunity to head to New York City. We are calling our mission to send about 70 students and chaperones “Operation Big Apple.” They will proudly represent our wonderful township of Goshen when they perform in front of the Statue of Liberty, visit the “Tribute To The World Trade Center,” Radio City Music Hall, see a Broadway play and maybe even a chance to being seen on The Today Show from Rockefeller Plaza. There will be so many unforgettable memories that this trip has in store, these talented band students will never be the same. Probably, neither will New York. We need your help. We have spon-

sored several fundraisers to offset the cost, but we are still in need of financing. Mark your calendars for the Gold Star Chili Dinner, Silent Auction & Basket Raffle, Friday, Aug. 21, 5 Linda Chess p.m. to 9 p.m. (or until Community the food runs out, is later), at Press guest whichever Goshen Middle School columnist Cafeteria and outside dining, behind the school, weather permitting. There will be several great baskets in the raffle. Auction includes jewelry, golf outings and much more. It’s a great way to get some great deals. The winners need not be present to win. Come early enough to watching the 2009-2010 opening scrimmage game at the football stadium. Look for more fundraisers, like the Slushie/bake sale Aug. 29 and Sept. 19 at Goshen Kroger. A car wash will take place at Bowmans Financial (across the street from Kroger’s) Aug. 29 and Sept. 19.


The Goshen Marching Warriors have a wonderful, “once-in-a-lifetime” opportunity to head to New York City. We are calling our mission to send about 70 students and chaperones “Operation Big Apple.” I wanted to add how very proud I and other “band fans” are of these students. They have made great process in trying to make “Operation Big Apple” a success. We would like to give a big thanks to all the generous merchants in Clermont County for all their wonderful donations. We really appreciate your support for these wonderful kids. We are still accepting raffle and silent auction donations. If you would like to donate please contact Joanna at Linda Chess lives on Werling Way in Goshen Township.

Goshen has a new beginning coming Allow me to introduce myself. I am Charles Stokes of Goshen Township and I am a candidate for trustee in November 2009. I have lived in Goshen all my life and have never seen things in Goshen run like this before. First, and above all, I want to disagree with the resignation of our Fire Chief Virgil Murphy, a bad deal for all. I believe our fire/EMS and police need a overhaul. To the article of good ‘ol boys; everything you stated in your six questions was correct. How to make a difference is to change the way things are done, and the reason the things happen is because no one cares. Now to get the facts straight. I believe everything that was stated in the article by Jo-Ann Bonham was correct. I just don’t get it, shouldn’t the fire department have enough staff? Well sure they should. Do they? I doubt it. Do the police have enough officers? Well we know they don’t have their own dispatcher. Yes, we

need more officers and a dispatcher. I know if my home was on fire I would want the fire department there ASAP with enough staff to put out the fire and not wait until it’s to late. If I call the Charles police I need them Stokes ASAP not tomorrow I would want to Community and talk to a live person, Press guest not a machine. Why columnist don’t these so called good ‘ol boys get things in order and get these two departments in order? You know why because these are not the major concerns – that’s why things are the way the are. These folks forgot who works for who. Trustees work for the people, not the people for the trustees. To the congratulations article; well good for Goshen to be under 14 percent. I am shocked.

Well the politicians think they work for themselves. Well they need a wake up call and remind them who put them where they are, the good old folks of Goshen. Did they forget about the voters? Yea the people. Well trustees of today that’s who you work for and don’t forget it. I do not believe we need administrators. Once again wasted money. We can hold each department head accountable. I can. See our sweet town of Goshen moving forward once things are changed and if folks of Goshen don’t go out and vote there won’t be any change so please all that will and can go vote, you do make a difference. Two more things I believe Goshen wants and needs a change. And if anyone would want to contact me for any reason you can do so by e-mail Well I am Charles Stokes and I approve this message. Charles Stokes lives on Ohio 132 in Goshen Township.

Green thumbs abound at county fair

Howdy folks, As I write this column at 8:30 a.m. Tuesday we have had 1 inch and 6 tenths of rain, and it is still raining. OH BOY!!!! Last week at the Clermont County Fair the cakes and pies sold good, not as high as last year, but good. The garden items we took did fine. I was wondering, due to the cool weather and all the rain, whether there would be much garden produce, but it was wonderful. There are lots of green thumbs in our wonderful county. I would like to congratulate all the folks who took anything to the fair. The young folks who had their livestock there are to be congratulated. On Sunday morning at 8:30 there were several of our Grangers there to take the Grange booths down and close them up so the fair can use the building for storage. Thanks, fair directors, for the use of the building. After we got home Ruth Ann and I got ready and went to church and what a service it was. There were two special songs, one by a young lady 8 years old. The little lady was Sydney Ast. Now her Mom and Dad and especially her grandparents Jim and Dixid, were so proud of her singing, how wonderful. There was another lovely lady that sang, named Elaine Ellis. Her Mom and Dad were there and were so

proud of her, and of course, along with her loving husband. Everyone enjoyed both specials. We are so proud to have heard both of these special songs. God Bless both of you and your famiGeorge lies. The church had a Rooks picnic after third servOle ice and it was well Fisherman attended. It seems the young folks and some not so young enjoyed the water balloons and water guns. It seems the balloons and guns didn’t hold enough water so some took to the plastic wading pools to get more water and run some down to throw the water on. The fun and fellowship committee that set this up are to be thanked. You folks did a wonderful job, and everyone thanks you. God Bless All of you. I was talking to the Boars Head Bait Shop in Afton. Mike said the folks are catching stripers, catfish, crappie and bluegills. The channel catfish are on a feeding frenzy. One feller caught more than 100 catfish in one evening and kept 10 to eat. The area by the campers beach is a good spot to try for stripers and catfish. I haven’t heard of any big catfish being

Community Journal Editor . .Theresa L. Herron . . . . . . . .248-7128

caught this year yet. Each year a big catfish of 30, 40 or 50 pounds is caught. A young feller keeps asking to write about squirrel hunting, well as a young feller on the farm when squirrel season came in, the night before I couldn’t sleep good. As a youngster and I imagine all kids are anxious to go hunting, we were always looking forward to it. We enjoyed the fried squirrel Mom fixed and also the squirrel and dumplings she would make. Boy it was good. Well, I have to report on two close friends that the Good Lord needed in Heaven. One was Elmer Dement. Now Elmer sang in the choir at church with us, along with his lovely wife, Thelma, (better known to me as SAM). He will surely be missed by all in the choir and at church. The other one is Leslie Veatch. This feller would go fishing with me at times and enjoyed it. Les was a very friendly feller and always had a smile for everyone. He will also be missed by the community and his lovely wife, Marie. God Bless both families. Start your week by going to the church of your choice and praise the Good Lord. God Bless All. More later. George Rooks is a retired park ranger. Rooks served for 28 years with the last five as manager of East Fork State Park.

Salute to a fallen Marine Community Press Staff Report’ Marine Brig. Gen. Robert Ruark praised the dedication and courage of Marine Staff Sgt. Mark Anthony “Tony” Wojciechowski in performing the dangerous job of Explosive Ordinance Disposal (EOD) technician. Wojciechowski was killed in Iraq April 30 while disarming an improvised explosive device (IED). A celebration of life and service for the fallen Marine was held Aug. 7 at the Union Township Civic Center. Ruark, who spoke at the event, said when Wojciechowski was killed he was investigating an IED that could have killed a number of Iraqis and

Americans. “Tony put his life on the line every day to keep fellow Marines safe,” Ruark said. The general said Wojciechowski volunteered twice, once to become a Marine and again to become an EOD tech. “Tony loved the corps and loved being an EOD tech,” he said. Also speaking at the event were U.S. Rep. Jean Schmidt and some of Wojciechowski’s family members and friends. Clermont County Commissioner Bob Proud made the introductions and helped organize the event.

The emerging spirituality of imperfection Father Lou Guntzelman Perspectives involves facing oneself squarely and seeing ourselves as we are: mixed-up, incomplete, and imperfect. To be human is to be error-prone. We are more than the beasts, less than God, yet somehow we are both. Authors Ernest Kurtz and Katherine Ketcham write, “Spirituality helps us first to see, and then to understand, and eventually to accept the imperfection that lies at the very core of our human be-ing.� Spirituality is not a formula to follow; it is a relationship with God. Spiritual-

ity is not about competency; it is about intimacy. Spirituality is not about perfection and doing everything right; it’s about connection. In “Messy Spirituality� Michael Yaconelli states, “The way of the spiritual life begins where we are now in the mess of our lives. Accepting the reality of our broken, flawed lives is the beginning of spirituality, not because the spiritual life will remove our flaws but because we let go of seeking perfection and, instead, seek God, the one who is present in the tangledness of our lives.� A more terse description of our flawed nature is contained in O’Neill’s play “The Great God Brown,� “Man is born broken. He lives by mending. The grace of God is the glue.� Hopefully along the way we become more humble, loving and compassionate. The steps along the way are not ascending some recognizable glorious staircase

called ego, but learning to live the ordinariness of our everyday lives. “Don’t fuss too much about yourself, or fight the truth, just accept yourself and grow,� said an old spiritual director. As Henri Nouwen wrote in his “Genesee Diary,� “He who thinks that he is finished is finished. Those who think they have arrived, have lost their way. Those who think they have reached their goal, have missed it. Those who think they are saints, are demons.� The secular world does not encourage people to acknowledge the spiritual aspect of our nature. Rather it rages against religious systems which they believe deprive us of our desires and physical vitality. David Tacey says of the secularist, “When religion is rejected, it does not mean that the spirit and soul go away or disappear. They are simply repressed into the unconscious where they

they don’t want her house and w o u l d rather she be out of foreclosure. They Howard Ain told me Hey Howard! the bank did receive her payments for November and December but just hadn’t applied them to her account. Yet, they applied the January payment before putting her into active fore-

closure. I explained how she now has thousands of dollars in payments she can send and bank officials said they will have someone from their repayment team contact her. Officials say that team should finally be able to get all this confusion resolved – and expressed confidence she could get out foreclosure. Once she gets out of foreclosure Peach says she plans to contact a local savings and loan to see if she can refinance.

Local lenders best when mortgage issues arise

Despite federal efforts to get mortgage lenders to do more to help homeowners remain in the homes, the number of foreclosures continues to increase. More than 200,000 trial loan modifications are now underway, but the government wants double that amount by November. Robin Peach of Burlington is one of those homeowners who have had trouble with her mortgage for the past two years. “I’ve had problems with them in the past, and I started paying them with Quick Collect from Western Union. But, back in March the bank sent two of my payments back to me,� Peach says. A letter from the bank said Peach had defaulted on her mortgage because she owes about $570. But, she says, she has regularly sent in her payment via Western Union. Unfortunately, when she does that all she has is a record of sending the money and no receipt showing the bank actually received it. As a result of the uncertainly, Peach started making her payments by Certified Check but says that hasn’t helped either. “Right now I stand in active foreclosure. They sent another two payments back to me on Saturday. They’re not accepting my money. I’ve got about four grand, almost five grand floating around,� Peach says. A January letter from her bank says she’s behind in her payments by $2,800, plus $100 in late fees. Peach says she doesn’t understand how the bank came up with those figures but hasn’t been able to get any answers. She hired an attorney in December but says that hasn’t helped. I had Peach call her bank directly and I got on the line to try to figure out what’s going on. Peach says, “I’m very frustrated. It’s just that I’m very busy at work and I don’t have time to deal with this. But, I have to have a place to live.� Unfortunately, Peach is dealing with an out-of-state lender so she can’t just go over and talk with a manager. Bank officials I talked with on the phone tell me

become factors of disturbance and causes of psychic suffering.� Imperfection is the crack in our armor, the wound that lets God in.


that the first step




Trying to be perfect in anything is a huge mistake. That’s because we’re human. It’s doubly so when it comes to the spiritual part of being human. It’s said the first prayer of a human is a cry for help. “O God, come to my assistance, O Lord make haste to help me,� (Psalm 70) begins a monastic’s prayer. Bill Wilson, founder of Alcoholics Anonymous, never did “get religion,� but he did become a spiritual man. Through the pain of his life experience he came to realize that unless he made connection with a power greater than himself, he was lost. He was convinced that “We must find some spiritual basis for living, else we die.� Some people think being spiritual means becoming perfect. Not at all. Throughout the centuries there has gradually emerged a spirituality of imperfection. A spirituality of imperfection says

Somerset, Kentucky’s Premiere Inn Located Just Minutes from Lake Cumberland

There is a joke among friends here, “It’s a Phoenix that has risen from the ashes. ”When Charles and Allison Hahn Sobieck purchased the property at 502 North Main Street (in Somerset, Kentucky), there was a lot of work to be done, to say the least. With the vision of a B & B and a home in ruins, there were little choices. The dilapidated structure was removed, then reconstructed as it had been in the 1850’s. It’s a brand new home. A bit of an unusual concept for a bed and breakfast. “We reconstructed the home from scratch. This gave us the benefit of designing every amenity possible along the way, ”said Allison Sobieck, owner. Every room is equipped with many amenities you don’t often find in a traditional bed and breakfast, but rather a fine hotel. Every room has a full sized closet with a pair of micro-fiber robes hanging in them, 400- count Egyptian cotton sheets, cable TV with DVD players, queen sized beds, and a host of other things. For instance, 2 rooms have gas fireplaces and 3 rooms have whirlpool tubs. We even offer many add on amenities such as massage, dinner, flowers, etc…

MICHIGAN The rooms are only half of the reason to come to The Doolin House. Owners Charles and Allison just happen to both be chefs. Some of the breakfast specialties include Caramel Banana French Toast and Southern Eggs Benedict (2 fried green tomatoes topped with 2 slices of smoked bacon, 2 eggs over easy and Hollandaise). Chuck is usually in charge of breakfast and tries to do new and different things every day. Chef Chuck pointed out, “It’s fun to experiment with breakfast. It’s the one meal that encompasses all foods. It’s perfectly acceptable to see smoked salmon or a pork cutlet at the breakfast table. ”For those in no rush to rise and shine, breakfast in bed is served at no additional charge. When you need a weekend get away that’s not too far from home or you are planning your summer vacation to beautiful Lake Cumberland, remember that The Doolin House Bed and Breakfast is only a phone call away.
