The Goshen and Clermont Northeastern local school districts will receive their first ever excellent ratings when Ohio’s Department of Education report cards are released. The official report cards for the 2009-2010 year will not be released until Aug. 27. Goshen Assistant Superintendent Darrell Edwards said preliminary data indicate the district will

receive an excellent rating. “We’re very happy,” he said. The district was rated effective last year, barely missing excellent, Edwards said. “Our staff has worked very hard,” he said. Edwards said the district met 26 of the 26 indicators and had a 101.4 performance index. All of the district’s buildings were rated excellent. Edwards said Goshen High

School and Spaulding Elementary School have been rated excellent several times in the past, but this is the first time Goshen Middle School had an excellent rating. “We’re very proud of our middle school staff,” he said. CNE Superintendent Neil Leist said preliminary results indicated the district would receive its firstever excellent rating because of CNE meeting its value-added measure. The district was rated

Police, fire departments cutting costs By Mary Dannemiller

Goshen’s police and fire chiefs have been turning off the lights and turning down the air conditioning to save money. In recent months the two departments have tried to save money wherever possible, ranging from canceling the fire chief’s cell phone to printing fewer documents in the police department. “They’ve done an excellent job and the fact of the matter is competent department heads will not only save you money, but make you money,” Goshen Township Administrator and Police Chief Ray Snyder said. “What we’re trying to do is develop a culture among the employees where everybody from the top to the bottom is trying to watch the pennies.” Assistant Police Chief Bob Rose said police officers have been asked to save money in a variety of ways. “Officers are required to turn

their patrol car off when they are on a service call, unless the emergency lights need to be on,” he said. “We recognize that by making sure lights and engines are turned off we are saving a few cents here and there, that change adds up to dollars.” In the fire department, Chief Steve Pegram is looking for ways to cut down the nearly $32,000 utilities costs the department incurs each year. “We are getting quotes to replace the lighting in the building with high efficiency lights. Duke offers rebates for the purchase of these lights and we have received one estimate that our electrical usage could go down as much as 25 percent,” he said. “Until then, if the room isn’t occupied, turn the lights off, especially the apparatus bays.” Aside from replacing a broken air conditioning unit and keeping the apparatus bay door closed in the winter, Pegram said the department could save money if

the fire house had newer, more energy efficient windows. “We are also going to look at replacing the windows, many of which are broken and drafty,” he said. “There are rebates available for their purchase and we may have an option to have them installed for free, saving money on the upgrade and the overall energy cost.” Both departments received some revenue from a surplus vehicle auction earlier this summer and Pegram said he hopes to have another soon. “The fire and EMS department is assessing the number of vehicles in the fleet and most likely will be declaring additional units surplus by the end of the year,” he said. “We hope to have reduced the fleet by at least three vehicles reducing our cost for maintenance, repairs, maintenance and testing. Currently seven of our 12 vehicles are in service beyond their recommended service life.” By reducing the number of

vehicles used to respond to calls and limiting errands in department vehicles, the fire department dropped its fuel costs by $400 last month, the fire chief said. “All options are on the table to reduce cost, our goal is to be fiscally responsible and at the same time maintain the level of services and personnel we currently have for the future,” Pegram said. Rose invited residents with questions about police department spending to visit the police station. “It’s important that people know that we are spending their tax dollars wisely,” he said. “Like any business, we are constantly looking at how we can be more cost efficient in every aspect of our operations. If a resident ever has a question or suggestion about spending, they are welcome to come see the chief or me, we are happy to answer any questions and we welcome a good idea.” To reach Rose, call 722-3200. Pegram can be reached at 72233473.

Boys & Girls Club plans being put on hold By Mary Dannemiller

Plans for a full-time Goshen chapter of the Boys & Girls Club have been put on hold after organizers weren’t able to raise enough money to get the club started. Goshen Township Police Officer James Taylor has been leading the effort to establish the club and said he fell short of his $150,000 goal. He had hoped to raise the money this summer and open the club in time for school to start, but only raised about $9,000. “Goshen really probably isn’t ready for a full-time club, so let’s take what we have and build off of it,” he said. “The plan is to take what I’ve got and start at the

ground level.” The police officer said if the donors approve, he’ll use the money to start a part-time summer program next year. “If I can get that going and then maybe once a month or a couple times a month, I get a group of kids together and do some kind of activity next summer, people will be interested,” he said. Boys & Girls Club of Clermont County Executive Director Nancy Ball said Taylor is paving the way for the township to have a full-time club some day. “I’m still very hopeful that we’ll eventually be able to start a full-time club there,” she said. “The community set a very ambitious goal in the amount of time they had.”

Ball said since Taylor was able to raise several thousand dollars, it shows there is some interest for a club in the township. “In this economic climate, the progress they made is a good thing,” she said. “We fully intend to continue working with them to make it a reality at some point in time.” Though the Boys & Girls Club offers summer camps tailored to specific community needs, Ball said next year’s program could feature anything from Passport to Manhood and Smart Girls camps for teens to educational camps designed to combat the “summer slide.” “One of the challenges schools have every year is when the new

school year starts up, most of the first quarter is spent reviewing,” she said. “Kids experience the summer slide when they’re not engaged in education activities and a bunch of things they learned throughout the school year sort of slides away.” Ball also said she hoped Taylor wasn’t discouraged. “Officer Taylor is the greatest youth advocate I think I’ve ever met,” she said. “He has done so much for the kids in Goshen and they know he cares about them. He’s a one man dynamo and he’s gotten a lot of people excited about this idea and he’s absolutely committed to making this happen.”

The vehicle was distinctive in that it was missing a right front passenger hub cap so we put out the information to surrounding agencies.” After a week without any area police officers spotting the car, Jenkins took things into his own hands and went out looking for the Nissan. “I figured these guys were local so I jumped in my car and went driving around,” he said. “Two or three hours later, I located the car in a mobile home

park and it was a match so I started doing some research on the owner and the people living at the owner’s address.” After receiving a search warrant for the home, Jenkins and his partners returned to the Woodville Gardens Mobile Home Park in Goshen, where one of the suspects confessed and named his accomplices. Police then found the stolen property, Jenkins said. When questioned, the suspects didn’t have a reason for holding on to the stolen items, Jenkins said. Now the detectives are working on returning the GPS units, cell phones, laptops and other items to their owners. “We’re just happy we’re able to return that much property to the victims and the residents,” Jenkins said. “It’s been exciting to return it and we’re happy with the results.” Both Bailey and Jenkins said residents should think twice before leaving expensive items in their cars. “The Miami Township Police Department encourages all people to remove valuables from their vehicles and to lock their vehicles when they are unattended,” Bailey said.

Goshen businesses pass alcohol compliance checks By Mary Dannemiller

Under 21 and looking to score some booze? Don’t even try in Goshen Township. In a recent undercover investigation by the Goshen Township Police Department, none of the township’s businesses with liquor licenses sold alcohol to a 19year-old volunteer. “The purpose of these checks is to ensure that our businesses are not selling alcohol to minors,” said Assistant Police Chief Bob Rose. “All too often, Goshen Township officers arrest drivers under the age of 21 who have been drinking and it’s not uncommon for our officers to be dispatched to underage drinking parties.” The investigation was lead by Detective Mark Penn and Police Chief Ray Snyder said he wasn’t surprised to hear there weren’t any violations. “It’s a very minute portion of the businesses with liquor permits who on occasion sell to underage kids,” he said. “By and large all of our merchants and businesses do a very good job of checking identification and making sure they’re in compliance with the law.” If any of the clerks had sold to the underage volunteer, both the clerk and the business owner would have been penalized, Snyder said. “It’s a misdemeanor offense the clerk would be charged with and the business owner is at risk for sanctions by the Ohio Liquor Control Board,” he said.

“They can file charges against the owner of the business and in many cases, suspend the liquor licenses on the first or second offense. They’re not able to sell beer or liquor for a period of time and that really gets their revenue.” Snyder said though the stores won’t sell to minors, parents still need to make sure their children don’t have access to alcohol. “It’s all about just being a good parent and knowing where your minor child is and understanding that you’re responsible for where they are or what they’re doing,” he said. “That’s what parents are supposed to do.” Goshen Township Trustee Bob Hausermann said he was happy none of the businesses sold the to the underage volunteer. “Every parent ought to be proud of the township’s police department and thankful they can send their children to the grocery store and not have to worry about having them purchase something they’re not supposed to have,” Hausermann said. The police department also will be cracking down on impaired drivers as part of the “Over the Limit, Under Arrest” campaign Wednesday, Aug. 18, to Monday, Sept. 6, Rose said. “Drugs and alcohol continue to be the root of why many crimes occur,” he sad. “The Goshen Township Police Department is committed to aggressive drug and alcohol education and enforcement.”

There will be three races – one that’s 30 minutes, one that’s 40 minutes and one that’s an hour. Race director Frank Mulich, a team member at 7 Hills Racing, said the short course is really a spectator sport. “It’s short, so the riders go by every minute or two and it’s just fun to watch. The (criterium) is a combination of race tactics like you have in motor sports and the physical effort it takes to propel yourself,” he said. “This is a passion for people and it’s a lot of fun.” The Sunflower Classic’s .8-mile route will start at Main and Mill streets. Races will then turn left on Garfield Avenue, right on High Street, left on Locust Street and left on Main Street.

Miami Township Police arrested 20 people late Thursday, July 29, and early Friday, July 30, after they found a large party with underage drinking. According to Miami Township Police Chief Steve Bailey, a patrol unit was checking on an empty building at 1213 Cottontail Drive when officers discovered a large group of teenagers partying behind the building. Several were arrested at the building, while others ran from police and were arrested on nearby Cook Road, Bailey said. Those arrested face charges ranging from open container to DUI, the police chief said. Bailey had a strong message to parents who allow their underage children to attend unsupervised parties. “Some of these arrests occurred after 2 a.m.,” Bailey said. “Why are your children out after two in the morning? Families should consider enacting their own family curfews and keep track of their children.” “There are too many

risks involved,” he said. “You might get in the car with someone who is too

Coldwell Banker West Shell donation helps young readers By Mary Dannemiller

A group of Milford elementary school students has been given the chance to improve their reading this summer, thanks to a $5,000 donation by Coldwell Banker West Shell. The donation allowed the district to establish a four week-long summer camp for about 60 first- and second-grade students in need of extra help with reading, district spokesperson Meg Krsacok said. “The $5,000 donation offset the cost of the teachers, materials and facilities,” she said. “In addition, Coldwell Banker donated 100 free

Will Pond works hard to complete an assignment during Milford’s Eagle Explorers Camp Wednesday, Aug. 11.

Campers received oneon-one attention in small group settings and participated in reading and phonics activities with a larger group of children. “We are getting more and more involved with local schools because it is the right thing to do and we strive to be a good community partner,” said Joe King, president of Coldwell Banker West Shell. “We have found that

what works best is to meet with individual superintendents and find out what they are passionate about and then come back and determine how we could provide resources to support that.” Superintendent Bob Farrell said he was grateful for the donation. “It’s an exceptional donation by Coldwell Banker West Shell because we were able to target our readers who are at risk and

really need that boost in the summer time to be successful in school,” he said. The camp is especially important this year, when students have a much longer summer due to construction at Milford High School, Farrell said. “This is really going to mean a great deal for those kids, not just for this next school year, but for their whole future success in education at school,” he said.

The Sunflower Streetfest will be noon to 10 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 11, on Main Street. Most of the shops downtown will be open. Street performers and vendors can be found along Main Street. This will be the second year for the streetfest. “Last year worked out so perfectly that we wanted to do it again. I think this is the best event Milford has to offer,” said Chris Hamm, Historic Milford Association member and Sunflower chair. “To be honest, it worked out so well that this year should be very similar to last year.” Hamm said the streetfest was created for multiple reasons: The Sunflower Revolution sponsors wanted some sort of event for Saturday evening and HMA was looking for a way to “rebirth” buskerfest and bring the

bicyclists into the city’s shops. “That first year they had a great ride, but people didn’t stick around. We had thousands of people in Milford and we needed to put feet on the street,” Hamm said. This year the University of Cincinnati Foundation is not helping sponsor the streetfest, so Global Scrap Management and Lykins Oil Companies stepped forward as major event sponsors, Hamm said. HMA President and Milford Fire Chief John Cooper said the streetfest also will promote the city. “We want to really showcase what we have here in Milford and bring people together to enjoy the weekend,” he said. Sunflower Streetfest will include live music featuring headliner Lovin’ Spoonful at 8 p.m. Other acts will include Ne’er Do Well at 3 p.m., Soul Pushers at 4:30 p.m., and Ronnie Vaughn at 6 p.m. Cooper said Main Street will be closed from Locust Street to Mill Street from about 8 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 11, until 1 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 12.

The Sunday closure is to accommodate the Sunflower Revolution bike ride and walk. There also will be road closures through South Milford starting at 6 p.m. Friday, Sept. 10, for the criterium race. For more information about the Milford Sunflower

This is their second year of camp at McCormick while the high school is under renovation and construction. The groups practice marching, playing their instruments and tossing their flags in the air for more than eight hours a day. There are about 130 members in band, drumline, pit and color guard. – Mary Dannemiller

New Boyd E. Smith principal excited to meet students By Mary Dannemiller

While Boyd E. Smith Elementary School students are savoring the last precious days of summer, new principal Brad Lovell is waiting for school to start with eager anticipation. Lovell was hired earlier this year after former principal Jill Chin was chosen as the district’s director of elementary curriculum and instruction. “It’s always difficult to replace a principal of Dr. Chin’s caliber,” said Superintendent Bob Farrell. “Her leadership has been wonderful and has helped us to raise Boyd E. Smith to an even higher standard. Mr. Lovell is a different person who has strengths and will help us continue what Dr. Chin has started.” Before joining Milford, Lovell

worked as a third grade and kindergarten teacher in the Wyoming City School District and most recently was an assistant principal at Wilson Elementary School in the Forest Hills Local School District. “That job (at Wilson Elementary) was a fantastic job and it really gave me the foundation and the skills I needed to bring to Boyd E. Smith,” he said. “There are some great things going on here and I want to make sure we can continue them and improve on them.” Lovell said he’ll spend his first year as principal establishing relationships with students, staff members, teachers and parents. “One of my main goals this year is to get know the culture of the school and get to know the ins and outs of Boyd,” he said. “I want to learn about the academic

excellence here and how they got there.” Farrell said he doubted Lovell would have a difficult time getting to know students and parents. “I think Mr. Lovell is very student centered and that’s very important for our principals,” he said. “He puts his students first and he’s very personable with all different groups – adults, community members, teachers, parents and the kids.” One way Lovell plans to get to know the students is by joining them during their favorite part of the day – lunch time. “I like to be in the cafeteria and eat with the kids,” he said. “It’s a great way to get out there and get to know them.” Lovell also said he’ll visit classrooms and read stories to the school’s younger children, then speak to classes of older children.

“Relationships are such an important part of any school job,” he said. “There are over 530 students so it’s going to take some time to build those relationships and get to know each student and what their needs are and the cool things they have going on in their lives, but I want to get out there and meet them.” The new principal also is passionate about helping children succeed and said his interaction with the students is his favorite part of the job. “Like any educator, I enjoy seeing the growth and the smiles on their faces when they achieve something,” he said. “I also enjoy seeing them succeed as whole school community and knowing that it’s from every single student’s efforts.” The first day of school is Tuesday, Sept. 7.


New Boyd E. Smith Elementary School Principal Brad Lovell is excited for the school year to start.

CNE wraps up summer projects By John Seney

The Clermont Northeastern Local School District is wrapping up a number of summer projects in time for the opening of school Aug. 31. Superintendent Neil Leist said at the Aug. 19 school board meeting he expects all the work to be completed in time. Much of the work was the result of the school board’s decision to close the old elementary school in Owensville at the end of the 2009-2010 school year and move the students to the district’s campus on U.S. 50 in Stonelick Township. The elementary students will attend classes in the former middle school building and the middle school will move to the former Early Childhood Education Center. The high school will remain in the same building. Most of the furniture for the schools was moved in June by volunteers and district personnel. A major summer project was the repair and expansion of the parking lots. Leist said Roberts Paving was expected to finish the work by Aug. 20. In addition, the work included the addition of 150 new parking spaces next to the tennis courts.

The addition brings to 580 the total number of parking spaces at the schools, Leist said. The parking lot work includLeist ed the painting of parking space lines and traffic flow arrows. Board member Mike Freeman said he would have preferred to see the entire parking lot resurfaced rather than just patched, but the district could not afford to pay for that. The work done by Roberts Paving cost $188,270. Leist said other work being completed included the installation of new security cameras at all the schools and the addition of wiring for Wi-Fi. At the elementary school, air conditioners were installed in classrooms and a playground was added. A fence was installed between the elementary school and the lake next to the high school. Painting work also was done at the elementary school and in the high school gym. Total cost of the summer work was about $675,000, which was budgeted by the school board.

Students get off buses Aug. 20 for the first day of classes at Spaulding Elementary School in Goshen.

School begins for Goshen students Students returned to classes Friday, Aug. 20, as the 20102011 school year began for the Goshen Local School District. New principals greeted students this year at three of the district’s schools. Troy Smith took over as princi-

pal at Marr/Cook Elementary School, Teresa Rohrkemper moved to Spaulding Elementary School and Brian Bailey was named the new principal at Goshen Middle School. Nancy Spears remains principal at Goshen High School.

Silence frightens but has so much to say

“The eternal silence of these infinite spaces terrifies me.” So stated Blaise Pascal, famed philosopher, scientist, mathematician and writer about the vastness of the universe. Notice it was not the sheer size of “these infinite

spaces” that amazed him. It was their silence that terrified him. The gaping stillness of a night sky can remind us of our human solitude. For so many, noise and busyness are familiar; solitude and silence frighten us.

Theologian Nicholas Lash writes, “I have a suspicion that one reason why some scientists seem so keen to suppose that somewhere, in some vastly distant region, there must be that which we could recognize as ‘living,’ and as capa-

Our fear of silence and solitude is confirmed when we recall how even early Greeks and Romans populated the distant skies with spirits, deities and astrological animals. Horoscope readers today find solace in the belief that the stars and planets are really entities concerned about us and our fate. Why do we dislike silence so much? One reason is we fear looking at all that is within us. We’re masters at avoiding confrontation with who we really are and what’s going on in our depths. True, our advances in technology can be extremely helpful in conversing with another and transacting our businesses. But at other times technology is like the Trojan horse that delivered a hidden enemy within the camp. Technology has already given us multiple ways to avoid silence: radio, TV, computers, cell phones, internet, games, e-mails, text-messaging, etc. We can go to bed with music or TV and awake to the same.

God. This apparently empty space of silence is actually indescribably full. Then it is that we discover that eloquent silence is not an absence, but a presence; not boring but refreshing; not stressful but serene. Author Pico Iyer describes this serenity found in silence: “Eloquent silence is that enchanted place where space is cleared, time subsides, and the horizon expands. “In silence, we often say, we can hear ourselves think; but what is truer to say is that in silence we can hear ourselves not think, and so sink below our selves into a place far deeper than mere thought allows. In silence, we might better say, we can hear someone else think.” As the heat and humidity moderate in late summer and autumn, nature calls us more insistently to come away for awhile from expressways, malls and crowds – and like the great host that she is – invites us to revel in her silence.

silence? There’s an app for that. An old paradoxical saying claims that the cure for loneliness is solitude. For when we have conquered solitude’s fear, we discover we are not alone. Bringing a temporary halt to our hurrying and doing permits us to tap into our conversations with ourselves within. Dr. James Hollis notes, “The chief pathology of our time is the capacity of the world to distract us from this conversation.” Psychological observations have proven that the three places we can come to know ourselves the best are marriage, psychotherapy and silence. Our first tries at bringing more silence into our lives can be agitating. We become anxious, feeling weird at doing this, and checking the time to see when our time is up so we can get on to better things. Actually, we have to go through the frightening silence to come to the eloquent silence. After working our way through the scary part of silence, we come to an inner place where the quality of the silence changes. In this more peaceful place we are mostly with our self, and with

Save summer vegetables for autumn soups There are certain soups that transcend trendy and become real heirloom favorites. The soup recipes I’m sharing today fit those criteria. They are the ones that are my most popular. Now I know it may be too hot to make them now, but tuck these jewels away – autumn isn’t far away!

Rita’s 30-minute vegetable soup

One of my most requested recipes, this is a favorite with kids and adults. Also, throw in any stray vegetables lurking in the fridge. Ditto with extra cooked pasta or rice. And if your family doesn’t like spicy soup, use regular canned diced tomatoes. Pass plenty of cheddar or Parmesan. l pound lean ground beef: sirloin or ground round 1 generous cup chopped onion 1 teaspoon garlic 1 jar, 20-30 oz. chunky garden style pasta sauce 2 cans beef broth Water to taste (start with 1

soup can of water and go from there) 1 can, 10 oz., chopped tomatoes and chilies 1 pound or so frozen mixed vegetables, thawed if you have time Several handfuls any fresh greens (opt.) Cheddar or Parmesan for garnish Sauté meat, onion and garlic together in large stockpot. “Sauté” simply means browning the meat with the onion and garlic. Drain any fat. Now add everything else but the greens. If you have the 30 oz. jar of pasta sauce, add almost all but taste before adding the rest. Bring to a boil and let simmer for 20 minutes or until veggies are tender. Toss in greens and cook until just wilted, about a minute more.

Tony Palazzolo’s version of Frisch’s vegetable soup

“A result of over a dozen attempts, and I think it is very close to Frisch’s,” wrote Tony, an Anderson Township read-


The last time I made this, I used about a pound of frozen mixed vegetables for the peas, corn, beans and lima beans. I also omitted the fresh carrots, since carrots were included in the frozen mixed vegetables. I used quick cooking barley and brown rice, as well. 4 tablespoons vegetable oil 1 cup onion, diced 1 ⁄2 cup each diced: carrots, celery 1 ⁄2 cup each frozen vegetables: peas, corn, cut green beans, baby lima beans (can use canned baby limas) 1 can, 14.5 oz, diced tomatoes with juice 2 quarts beef broth 1 quart water 1 ⁄2 teaspoon each thyme, garlic powder 3 ⁄4 teaspoon black pepper 1 cup potato, diced 1 ⁄4 cup pearl barley 1 ⁄4 cup long grain rice Salt to taste

and barley. Bring to boil and lower to simmer partially covered for 30 to 45 minutes. Add potato, rice and barley, bring back to boil, lower to simmer, partially covered, for another 30 minutes or until potato, rice and barley are done. Add salt and pepper.

Tri-County Mall has joined Newport on the Levee and is now requiring teens to have an adult escort after 4 p.m. on weekends. Do you support the idea? Why or why not? “I think having adult supervision in the malls after a certain hour is a responsible approach to making sure that the kids are well behaved. It would reduce the crowding of areas and it also helps people feel more comfortable when they do not have to worry about crowds of teens that hang together whatever their intentions. Having said that, if the child is not respectful and is disruptive to the commercial intentions of the malls, having a parent who







CPS renewal levy will not raise taxes

The children of Clermont County need you now more than ever and I am writing to encourage Clermont voters to support the CPS renewal levy that will be on the ballot this fall. Clermont County Children’s Protective Services is dedicated to protecting children and investigates thousands of allegations of child abuse or neglect each year. Much effort is put into preserving families that are investigated by making counseling and other supportive services available so a child can safely remain at home. When this is not possible, these children are placed with caring foster families. The levy is a .8-mill renewal levy and will not raise taxes. The money does not go towards any administrative costs or salaries. Every single cent generated by the levy goes directly to services for Clermont County’s abused,

neglected and dependent children. Mark and I are in our 22nd year as foster parents. I can tell you firsthand that the children placed in Denise our home have Strimple received every conceivable supCommunity portive service to Press guest help make the columnist children in our care healthy, happy and safe. Without the levy monies, it would have been far more difficult to help these children. Levy money makes it possible for delayed and disabled children move from atypical to typical children. Many of you know me and over the years, have read my arti-

cles of support for our children. I realize that in these difficult economic times, money is tight at home, at work, at church, really just about everywhere. But I just cannot imagine a better investment of our resources than in Clermont County’s children. They are our most vulnerable citizens, and if not you, who will protect them? Mark and I are in this for the long haul and have resolved to be a voice for those who do not have one. Won’t you join Mark and me as advocates for those who have no voice? We need your help to continue. Please vote “yes” Tuesday, Nov. 2. Keep our children safe. Visit www.KeepClermontKids for more information. Denise Strimple is a Clermont County foster parent. She lives on BethelHygiene Road in Tate Township.

President Obama announced recently that he wants to speak at a high school commencement. He’s looking for a school that prepares students well for college and careers. He need look no further than any Ohio career center. Called joint vocational school districts, these public schools were formed in the 1960s and 1970s to offer technical programs to Ohio students in a practical and costeffective way. Groups of school districts joined these regional JVSDs; juniors and seniors could choose to complete their high schooling at the affiliated JVSD or in satellite JVSD programs at their school to receive specialized career instruction and skills. Some districts, such as Cincinnati Public Schools, developed career-technical programs within their district. For nearly four decades, Ohio students have learned dozens of careers, from animal science to health care, robotics, cosmetology, dental assisting and firefighting. In many programs graduates were certified in their career field or at least years ahead of other high school graduates entering that field. But something happened to JVSDs – by now more accurately called career centers – as we

entered the 21st century. Always closely aligned with local business, school leaders saw that even as they learned high level skills, successful Robin White students needed Community the ability and to Press guest enthusiasm keep learning. The columnist numbers of career-technical students who went directly to college skyrocketed and the percentages of college-bound graduates now rival those schools ranked high in state standards. At area career centers, 50 to 80 percent of students go directly to post-secondary education. Through dual credit options and articulation agreements, many of those students finish high school having already earned college credit. The skills needed to be successful as adults have changed as well. All high school graduates need to be technologically savvy; they need to have strong problem-solving skills, they must be able to collaborate with their co-workers, they must understand the global marketplace and they must be able to think critically. Excellent K-12 school districts understand this and outstanding

teachers incorporate these skills daily in the classroom. Careertechnical education is an ideal setting for learning these skills; students work together in a hands-on environment each day, solving the kinds of problems they’ll face in the workforce. Career-technical education provides opportunities for adults who want to change careers, too. Thousands of displaced, unemployed and underemployed workers who faced uncertain futures in recent years are now working in new careers thanks to the shortterm, high-impact programs available at area career centers. The next time you eat a fine meal in a restaurant, are cared for by a health care professional, ask someone to develop a Web site for your business, talk with your child’s teacher or fly on a commercial jetliner, chances are you’ve been served by a career center graduate. They come to us as sophomores who have a strong sense of what they want to do with their future, and they leave prepared for college, careers and life. Robin White is president and chief executive officer of the Great Oaks Career Campuses. This was also signed by Maggie Hess, superintendent Warren County Career Center, and Ken Morrison, superintendent US Grant Career Center.

Eagles look for stronger league record By Adam Turer

Since joining the Fort Ancient Valley Conference Buckeye Division in 2007, the Milford High School football program has started each season strong. Finishing each season with five straight conference games has derailed the Eagles hopes for a winning season each time. To reach their goal of a winning season, the Eagles will need to play better in a league that

Pat Fagan. Elkin made some adjustments to the defense, but inherits several skilled offensive players. The Eagles graduated three senior linebackers from the 2009 team and will shift from a 4-3 to a 4-2-5 defense this year to highlight the depth of the secondary. “Our offensive line is unproven and our linebackers are all new,” Elkin said. “Those are our two biggest voids right now.” If the offensive line can come together quickly, the Eagles should have a highpowered offense. Wide receiver Shawn Taylor, running back Nathan Termuhlen, and quarterback Frank Sullivan all return. “We bring all our skill guys back,” Elkin said. “We spent the offseason getting stronger.

strength can open things up for our talented skill players.” Taylor leads the defense from his cornerback position. He is just as dangerous of a playmaker on defense and special teams as he is on offense. Defensive tackle Nick Sharp leads up front, while senior Adam Chacksfield will lead the inexperienced linebacker corps. The Eagles added perennial playoff teams Kings and Turpin to the non-conference schedule. Those two FAVC Cardinal Division programs will provide a big test for the Eagles prior to Buckeye Division play. The Eagles are 2-13 in Buckeye Division play since joining the conference. “To turn things around, we need to become more competitive in our conference,” Elkin said.


Milford’s Shawn Taylor stretches out for a ball that was just overthrown. One of the goals this offseason was to add depth in order to allow fewer players to start on both Elkin offense and defense.

Key losses stymie Warriors’ title defense By Adam Turer

The Goshen Warriors return just five starters from last season’s Southern Buckeye Academic Athletic Conference champion team. After being upset in the first round of the Division III playoffs, the Warriors have spent much of the offseason battling injuries. They will need to get to full strength quickly as they break in new starters at several key positions. “We’ve been hit by the injury and illness bug,” head coach Nick Inabnitt said. “We’re still trying to figure out who we can hang our hat on.” The players and coaches have also had to overcome the loss of senior Eric Coleman, whose football play-

New coach hopes to bring CNE stability By Adam Turer

Clermont Northeastern High School has struggled to keep continuity in its football program. Charlie Carpenter enters his first season as head coach trying to bring some stability to the program. Carpenter is the team’s third head coach in four seasons. Originally from Loveland, Carpenter has spent most of the past 11 years coaching in the Canadian Football League. Carpenter Hired in late spring, he did not have a full offseason to work with his new squad. “We got off to a late start, but the kids have worked hard,” Carpenter said. On offense, the Rockets will try to more evenly mix the pass with the run. The offense will line up in multiple formations but will be based out of the I formation. On defense, CNE will play an eight-man front. One thing Carpenter has that most new coaches at

CNE’s roster was not ready by press deadline. CNE have not benefited from in recent years is a deep senior class. The Rockets return 16 seniors this year. “We are fortunate to have those seniors,” Carpenter said. “We will count on all of them for leadership.” The Rockets have 41 young men on the roster and all are fighting for playing time. With a new coaching staff, almost every position is open for competition in preseason play. “We will have some younger kids battling for positions,” Carpenter said. “We will see who steps up in our scrimmages.”

Senior quarterback Kenny Thompson leads the offensive during a scrimmage drill. Those position battles may end up leading to added depth at certain posi-

tions. The Rockets have more skill position players than linemen and need more depth on the lines. Position battles are a welcome sight at CNE, where depth has often been a major issue in recent seasons. “I think we’re in a position with some kids battling where two or three might rotate at one position,” Carpenter said. Playing a physical conference, the Rockets will need to rely on that depth late in the season. A tough midseason stretch with games against Southern Buckeye Academic Athletic Conference favorites

Goshen, New Richmond, and Western Brown in consecutive weeks will be a big challenge for CNE. “If we can stay healthy, especially through that tough stretch, it will be a blessing,” Carpenter said. The Rockets’ seniors have been through a lot of changes in their four years with the program. They are optimistic that they can end their varsity time on a positive note. “Our kids want to win,” Carpenter said. “As coaches, we’re going out to win every game.” The Rockets open the season at Cincinnati Country Day on Aug. 27.

Rockets have postseason hopes in ’10 By Nick Dudukovich

Opponents of Archbishop McNicholas High School will be hard pressed to miss the guy under center for the Rockets this season. At 6 feet, 5 inches tall, and 225 pounds, quarterback Matt Staubach draws a lot of attention. He’s part of the reason many believe McNick can improve on it’s 5-5 record from last season. Staubach completed 41 of 98 passes in Klonne 2009 for 556 yards. He also rushed for 717 yards and 11 touchdowns on 154 carries. So far, the lofty expectations aren’t bothering the Anderson native. “I’m just coming out and playing like I always do,” he said. “My experience on varsity is helping me out a lot.” While McNick coach Steve Klonne is confident in his senior quarterback, he believes Staubach still has room for improvement. “Decision making is something he needs to improve on, and I think he has gotten better,” Klonne said. McNick finished with a 5-5 record in the Greater

If that happens we’ll be a better team,” he said. Staubach said the team will have to reduce its errors if it is to reach its goals. “We need to stick together and work on the little things and not make too many mistakes,” he said. “If we do that, we’ll be good.”

Defense, ground game key for Moeller By Mark Chalifoux

The Moeller High School football team had a strong regular season in 2009 fueled by a talented senior class, and head coach John Rodenberg said the Crusaders look to reload rather than rebuild. “We have some great size on the offensive and defensive lines. I’m pretty excited,” he said. “We have some good senior leadership, and if we continue to improve, it will be a good year.”

Joe Tull and Sam Fraley will anchor the offensive line for Moeller and that will be one of the strengths for the Crusaders. Moeller also returns running back Tucker Skove, who was one of the Crusaders’ top threats out of the backfield. Skove had 644 rushing yards and nine touchdowns in 2009. As a team, Moeller ran for 2500 yards in 2009 and will be a run-first team again in 2010. “He’s a pretty dynamic running back,” Rodenberg said of Skove. “Our line will be big and physical and we

hope our size and strength will help carry our running game.” Moeller also returns receivers Monty Madaris and Max Richey. Richey had 478 receiving yards and three touchdowns for Moeller in 2009. The big challenge for the offense will be replacing Andrew Hendrix, now at Notre Dame. Moeller had four different players competing for the slot and Rodenberg said no one had broken away with the job yet. “We will depend on a good defense to keep the opposing scoring down and rely on our run game as well to give our new quarterback time to grow,” he said. “We have talented guys battling for the position so whoever wins it will be able to manage the offense.” Rodenberg said he thinks the defense has a chance to be “really special” this season. The defense is led by senior defensive end Jesse Hayes, who has more than 20 Division I scholarship offers. Linebacker Kendall Walker has also generated considerable interest among Division I colleges. Kevin Robinson-White, John Tanner and Dante West round out the defensive line, one that

Bombers’ strong defense to lead team

By Jake Meyer

In 2009, the St. Xavier Bombers were Greater Catholic League South division champions, boasting a 3-0 conference record, but fell short of winning a state title, losing to Elder in the second round of the playoffs. Now, just a few years removed from an undefeated 2007 state championship season, the Bombers are hoping that a wide-open Greater Catholic League will lead them to a second consecutive conference title and a trip to Canton for the title game. The Bombers, who were 9-3 overall last season, return 10 starters from last year’s team, six of whom play defense. It’s the defense, led by senior linebackers Steven Daniels and Sean Duggan, that will carry this team, according to head coach Steve Specht. “With four linebackers returning, the middle of our

However, the offensive side of the ball has a few question marks as the Bombers must break in a new quarterback this season, replacing the graduated Luke Massa. That job falls to senior Nick Albers. Albers, a 6-foot-4 pocket

passer, served as Massa’s backup in 2009 and, according to Specht, has separated himself from his competition in practice. Albers will be helped by a strong running back in junior Conor Hundley. Hundley led the GCL in rushing yardage as a sophomore in 2009, racking up more than 1,000 yards. The top receiving threat for St. Xavier is expected to be sophomore Kevin Milligan. Milligan caught nine passes for 136 yards as a freshman and will see much increased playing time this season. The Bombers are not alone in having some uncertainties heading into the 2010 season, as every GCL team has suffered significant losses from last season, including both Elder and Moeller who must also break

Aug. 29 @ Wayne – 4 p.m. Sept. 4 Hamilton Sept. 10 @ Northmont Sept. 18 Findlay – 7 p.m. Sept. 24 @ St. Xavier Oct. 1 @ Indianapolis Cathedral, Ind. Oct. 8 Elder Oct. 15 @ La Salle Oct. 23 St. Edward – 2 p.m. Oct. 29 @ Cardinal Mooney – 7 p.m. All games are 7:30 p.m. unless otherwise noted. Rodenberg called “one of the best in the state.” He predicted Shaquille Jinks will have a big year in the Walker secondary. Rodenberg pegged La Salle as the favorite for the Greater Catholic League title, but said Elder and St. Xavier will be good again, per usual. He also doesn’t buy the talk among some coaches that the GCL is down this year. “Everyone that says the GCL is down, I wish they would schedule us. It gets old having to go out of town to play teams,” he said. “I will give Colerain credit because they play all of us.” Moeller opens the season in the Skyline Chili Crosstown Showdown against Huber Heights Wayne in a game on ESPNU. Wayne is led by the No. 1rated quarterback in the class of 2011, Braxton Miller. Moeller also plays difficult games against Indianapolis Cathedral, Lakewood St.


Moeller running back Tucker Skove gets past several defenders from St. Xavier. Skove will lead the Crusaders ground attack in 2010. Edward and at Cardinal Mooney in Youngstown. Rodenberg said he feels confident the Crusaders will have another successful season because of Moeller’s depth. “This is the most depth I’ve had in my three years here,” he said. “If we lose a guy there’s another guy capable of stepping in and that’s exciting because you get banged up playing in our league. That depth is really good for our football team,” he said. Rodenberg said he also expects the team to get great leadership from its captains. The captains are Joe Tull, Jesse Hayes, Kendall Walker and Dylan Ruter. Rodenberg said the team is ready to get the season started. “We’re on ESPN for our very first game so we can’t wait,” he said. “It takes so much time to prepare for the season so we’re excited to get the season started.”


Moeller’s Max Richey catches a touchdown pass against Hamilton in 2009. Richey will be the top receiver for Moeller again in 2010.

in new quarterbacks. This uncertainty has lead to a wide-open race for the GCL title, and Specht is unsure who the favorite is to win the league. “I really don’t know (how the standings will look),” Specht said. “I think there are

so many unknowns, you can take all four teams, put them in a hat and draw them and that could be how the GCL standings end up.” One thing is certain for the Bombers, and that is a very, very tough schedule. St. X opens us against Our Lady of Good Counsel from Washington, D.C., who finished 11-1 last season, in a game televised nationally by ESPN. In addition to the Bombers’ GCL opponents, St. X also plays two perennial powerhouses from Louisville, Trinity and St. Xavier, as well as two of the best teams northern Ohio has to offer, in Lakewood St. Edward and Cleveland St. Ignatius.

“We play a brutal schedule,” Specht said. “I tell the kids that the toughest team we play is the next team on the schedule.” For Specht, the expectations for the season deal not with wins and losses, but in less tangible goals like character, teamwork and effort. Specht said his biggest challenge is teaching his players how to work hard and transcend what they think they are capable of. “High school kids need to learn what hard work is,” Specht said. “Once that’s done, it’s about teaching them to break the glass ceiling and go above and beyond where they think they can go.”

Harvest means good eats this winter Howdy folks, When I look at the table and see the canned tomatoes, beans, pickles and other garden produce, I thank the Good Lord. It takes lots of work to have a garden to provide food for us to eat this winter. The blackberries are still producing some fine berries. Now mark your calendar for the Shrimp Harvest at the Ratliff Farm Sept. 18, you can start buying at 1 p.m. You can come earlier and watch them harvest. They are located in Brown County on John Woods Road off Ohio 32. If you have never seen them harvest the shrimp it is something to see. The shrimp are very big and mighty fine eating. Last week while it was so hot we did something we never have done before. We took some cranberry beans to a lady. She had called Ruth Ann after reading about them in the paper. This lady

had never heard of them so we gave her and her daughter a good package. After we delivered them we went to the Eastgate Mall and got a “Blizzard” and enjoyed it in the cool area watching the kids. They have a sling for the children to be put in so they can jump up and down on a trampoline and go up high in the air. We heard it begin thundering so we left and came home. By the time the storm was over we got one and a half inches of rain which our garden really needed. Last Friday evening Ruth Ann and I went to Bob Evans with our 50 and over group from church to have supper. There was a good group and we all enjoyed the fellowship and meal. The waitress was from our church, too. We are doing this instead of going on a trip. Next month we will meet at

Orchard last week and got a box of peaches. They are beautiful. They have the “Early Blaze” apples ready and you can pick your own apples. We got to see Cindy, her grandchildren, daughter and the great grandmother. This young lady Cindy has had a battle with illness and is in a wheelchair. But she always has a beautiful smile for us and of course the customers. We missed seeing Marilyn as she had the day off. The Bethel Lions Club helped the Bethel P.T.O. at the Bick Primary School get the backpacks ready for the kindergarten through fifth grades, which they have done for a few years. Last

keep them. The first place with 7 fish weighed in George was 5 pounds 8.5 Rooks ounces; second place was 5 Ole pounds 7 ounces; Fisherman third place was 5 pounds 1 ounce. We haven’t been on the lake for over a month but when things slow down we will start fishing to fill the freezer for some good eating fish for this winter. Now you fellers and gals who like to squirrel hunt, Sept. 1 the season will be opening. Where has the summer gone. 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.

Social networking is the grouping of individuals into specific groups. Although social networking is possible in person, it is most popular on

the Internet, because the Internet is filled with millions of individuals and groups who are looking to meet other people to share information about hobbies or work, to develop friendships or professional alliances, or find employment. The topics and interests are infinite.

Monday evening at four they started passing the backpacks out to the students. They could pick out the one they wanted, the color or design. There was a large group of the children and many of the Lions Club members were there to help. This counted as our meeting for that night. After the backpack distribution, Ruth Ann and I went up to the Grange by Peebles to do an inspection of this Grange. This Grange is Louisville and they have an Ice Cream Social, Saturday, Aug. 21, and a fish fry scheduled in October. They are very involved in the community and the local church. The Boars Head Bait Shop in Afton had a crappie tournament last Sunday. The big crappie was 1 pound 4 ounces. The folks caught some better size crappie. The first place had caught 20 keeper fish.

For most people, it’s a gathering spot to connect with friends. Facebook allows you to make new connections with people who share a common interest. Additionally, users can join networks organized by their own workplace, companies, schools and organizations or clubs.

I’ve had a Facebook page (site) for some Linda time. I’ve Eppler been conn e c t i n g Community friends I Press guest knew in high columnist school. It’s very easy to search for someone on Facebook. You just type in their name or the common interest, such as the name and location of the high school. It may take two or three identifiers to find the person you are looking for. Most people post a photo of themselves, which helps you decide if that’s the person you know. Warning: I have discovered first-hand that 45 years out of high school alters the appearance of many people. In just a few months though, I have connected with 95 of my “closest high school friends.” It’s really fun. Clermont Senior Services has been on Facebook for the better part of a year. We post basic news and human interest stories as well. We keep our Facebook friends up to date on the progress of our new kitchen. We also post event information. You could post your own birthday party if you wanted to. For us, it’s the information about our upcoming Art, Antiques, and Collectibles Auction Sept. 10. By the way, two special items have been donated since our release about this event. One is an exquisite, hand-made Amish quilt donated by Jim and Nancy Parker. The other is a week’s stay in a luxury, four-bedroom home on beautiful Captiva Island, Florida. The house is situated on the bay with its own dock and a private swimming pool. Four couples could go together to purchase a great week of fun. Call us at 724-1255 for more info. You can see photos of both items on our Facebook page. How do you do it? Just type the word “Facebook” on your Internet search engine. Then Facebook will ask you for an email address and a password, which you select yourself.

So you think you have a great idea? Have you ever had an idea for a product or process that you believe people would want? Maybe something that would improve quality of life or make things easier? Greater Cincinnati has a multitude of resources that can assist budding entrepreneurs or innovators. Cincinnati Innovates is currently conducting their second innovation competition. Cindy Huxel of Stonelick Township submitted an entry for this year’s competition. It is an educational math and finance game for third through sixth grades: Traders Treasures – Jewelies Game. Visit and click on the View and Vote tab for more information. The competition ends Sept. 1.

The purpose is to spur local entrepreneurial activity by helping launch startup companies, which then spurs economic growth. The U.S. Census Bureau and the Kauffman Foundation report that startup companies accounted for all net new job growth in the U.S. between 1981 and 2008. Supported financially by regional companies, foundations and firms committed to driving the long-term economic growth of Cincinnati through innovative ideas, the competition is open to anyone regardless of level of expertise with an innovation, idea or invention and a Greater Cincinnati connection – whether from Cincinnati originally or someone who lives or works in the Tristate area now.
