Goshen Twp. firefighters install smoke detectors By John Seney

GOSHEN TWP. — Firefighters are installing free smoke detectors for residents that were obtained with a federal grant. Fire Chief Steve Pegram said the township received a $6,840 grant from the Federal Emergency Management Agency Assistance to Firefighters Program to purchase the alarms. The grant provided 95 percent of the cost, with the township paying the rest. The grant was used to purchase 400 detectors with 10year batteries, he said. Pegram said the grant stipulates firefighters must install the smoke detectors. The detectors and installation are free to Goshen Township residents.

Pegram said any resident wanting a detector can call 7223473 or stop by the fire station at 1849 Ohio 28 to arrange for an installation. Pegram Lt. Kevin Lynch said the installation only takes about 10 minutes. “We look over the floor plan and install the detector in the best place,” he said. Lynch said the resident must be home at the time to let the firefighters in. Installation is available on weekends for people who work during the week, he said. Lynch said firefighters also will be going door-to-door in the township to offer the installations.

CNE Girls visit Mercy Clermont By Sherri Newberry Contributor

The CNE Girls Club traveled to Clermont Mercy Hospital Oct. 4 to explore careers in the healthcare profession. The staff at Clermont Mercy went above and beyond the expectations of coordinators Marty Rauen, middle school counselor, and Sherri Newberry, middle school aide, and provided the girls with information and experiences that were interesting and informative. The girls visited the radiology department to see how Xrays, CAT scans and MRIs are performed by technicians and the images analyzed by radiologists. Laura Carlier, seventh-

grade science teacher, was excited when the technician was explaining the MRI technology. He described the temperature as a Kelvin reading which was a discussion in their science class earlier that week. Their exploration of the surgical department included girls making preparations as if they were going to enter surgery. They were asked to put on hats, masks, gloves, and shoe protectors, which is the protocol for anyone entering a surgery. Nurses explained how the patients are monitored and tests that are carried out before the surgery is performed. Clermont Mercy intensive

Mayhem organizers: Look for us next year By Roxanna Blevins

GOSHEN TWP. — Mayhem at Marr Park organizers wrapped up the month-long corn maze and haunted trail at Kathryn Stagge-Marr Community Park with one final scare Saturday, Oct. 27. Mayhem organizer Eric Lutz said the event, which was intended to help the community get acquainted with the park, brought roughly half the turnout he expected. Some factors he thinks may have affected the popularity of the maze and trail include football games and weather issues. The small turnout provided less of a financial return than he had hoped for, but Lutz said he still intends to donate 20 percent of the proceeds to the Goshen Park District. In spite of the slow business, he said people seemed to enjoy Mayhem. “Everyone who came ex-

pressed that they really liked it,” Lutz said. Goshen Park District Commissioner Rob Barrett worked as a volunteer at the exit of the corn maze. He said he heard a couple complaints from people who said it took too long to complete the maze. Most people finished the maze in about 20 to 40 minutes. But, most people were “really excited” about Mayhem, Barrett said. “It was rewarding to see the confusion on peoples’ faces when they got out of the corn maze,” he said. While Lutz said the aim of Mayhem was to scare people, he made sure to cater to families with young children. Saturdays between 6 p.m. and 8 p.m., no actors were in the maze, and children were able to go through with their families and get candy. Lutz said he plans to bring Mayhem back next year.

care staff performed a small skit to illustrate how several departments of the hospital come together to meet the needs of patients in the ICU area. There were five CNE seniors who attended the

trip to help the girls and earn community service hours. The goal was to expand the girls’ awareness of careers beyond a doctor or nurse in the healthcare profession. Rauen and Donna Hacker, sixth-grade math teacher, were very pleased with all that the staff did to welcome the girls and reach this goal.

Goshen Learning Academy enrollment keeps growing By John Seney

GOSHEN TWP. — The summer and extended-day program at Goshen schools continues to grow. “We had a great summer this year,” said Jen Schlosser, director of the Goshen Learning Academy. “Enrollment is really increasing.” The academy offers academic enrichment programs during the summer and before- and afterschool child care during

the school year. The programs are tuitionbased. Schlosser said summer enrollSchlosser ment ranged from a low of 29 to a high of 57. The enrollment fluctuates because some students only attend on certain days or weeks, she said. “The kids are busy all

day long,” Schlosser said. “There is never time to get bored.” The summer program included 10 students who are entering Marr/Cook Elementary School this year as kindergartners. In addition to academics, the summer program included field trips and other activities. “We had fun. It was not just reading,” she said. Enrollments for the before and after-school programs also increased this year, Schlosser said.

She said many parents like the extended day programs because they offer homework help. School Board Member Sue Steele said the Learning Academy has grown since it began several years ago. “It’s come a long way,” Steele said. “It’s all been positive.” The academy is housed at Marr/Cook Elementary School, 6696 Goshen Road.

Lady Eagles learn how to win By Tom Skeen

MILFORD — For the second time in three years, the Milford Lady Eagles volleyball team lost in a Division I sectional final to a team from the Girls Greater Cincinnati League. In 2010 it was Ursuline Academy and this season, McAuley, who beat the Lady Eagles 26-24, 25-12, 25-10 Oct. 22. “We came out really confident,” coach Lauren Cooper said. “If we would have won that first game I think things would have been totally different. When you

push hard and lose a game like (the first set), especially against a team that good, as much as you try to keep the girls confident, there is still a piece inside of them that is almost burnt out.” Despite the loss, all was not lost for the Lady Eagles. After going 12-12 last season, they finished 17-8 despite having a young team with only two seniors. “I was really happy (with the season),” Cooper said. “The girls worked so hard and worked as a team and that helped them get the winning season. Of course there are games we should have won

and didn’t, as is the case every year, but we were able to overcome that.” The two seniors who led the Lady Eagles were Beatrice Craycraft and Rachael Sullivan. Both were named first-team All-Eastern Cincinnati Conference and Sullivan led the conference with 3.09 kills per game and was second with 235 kills. Craycraft finished third in the ECC with 4.70 digs per game and second with 362 digs. “They were both huge leaders for us on and off the court,” their coach said. “Both were captains

and I told them teams are going to look to shut you down, and if it works, they are going to win. Luckily for us, they do better when they accept a challenge. It fuels their fire. They are going to really be missed, but we have a lot of juniors coming back next year and just hope we can find the leadership they brought us.” While leadership will be a question come 2013, what won’t be is the amount of talent returning to the court. Madison Taggert, Rachel Danahy and Jessica Winstel are back and all three finished in the

top 20 of the ECC in service aces this season, while Lauren Moeller and Rachel Greene returned and finished inside the top 20 in kills per game. “I am excited (about next year),” Cooper said. “We just have such a great group. We don’t have to worry about them working hard, making a play or winning because we see that in practice. We comeback with five or six seniors, most of who are starting. We are just looking for a few spots on the team and are excited because of all the talent we have returning.”

2012 LADY EAGLES LEAVE MARK ON PROGRAM Kiersten Johnson led league in points By Tom Skeen

MILFORD — The season didn’t end the way coach Pat Winkler and the Milford Lady Eagles soccer team would have liked, but they still captured their fifthstraight league title in 2012. In the second round of the Division I sectional tournament, the Lady Eagles found themselves down 2-0 to St. Ursula at the half but fought back to tie the game at two before giving up three goals late in the game, losing 5-2, Oct. 20. “I was proud of the way we re-

sponded despite some adverse situations,” Winkler said. “We were able to weather the storm figuratively and literally and get to half time, and I thought the first 20 minutes (of the second half) we took control of the match. It took so much energy to equalize the game and with two dynamic forwards like St. Ursula has, they were able to find the back of the net.” Senior Kiersten Johnson scored both goals for her team in the loss and was a key part of the team that kept up the winning tradition at Milford. On the season Johnson led the Eastern Cincinnati Conference with 39 points and scored 15 of her team’s 40 goals. “She is right there in terms of

productivity,” her coach said. “She scores with a combination of blazing speed, good technical ability and a very powerful shot, and can place it very well. We were pleased with her production and also making sure she knew that defenses were going to key in on her, and fine tuning the different aspects of her game.” Despite the loss early in the postseason, Winkler is pleased with how this season went. “When you look at the number of players we lost and the quality players we lost, as coaches we went in with our eyes open saying we have some great players with experience returning, and if we can get the pieces to fall in the right place finding positions

and roles, we can really have a successful season and we were able to do that.” Coming off a season where Winkler’s team made a run to the regional final, this year’s team was able to separate itself as its own team, which is something Winkler aims for all season. “Overall it was a good season,” he said. “We were constantly trying to remind the girls to emerge from last year’s shadow. We talked about it and knew they were always going to be compared to last year’s team, but we wanted them to embrace it but leave their own mark. Instead of it being the fifth league title in a row, look at it as the first ECC title and it is something they were able to do.”

UC Clermont Cougars received an at large bid to the U.S. Collegiate Athletic Association National Championship tournament. The tournament runs Nov. 2-4 in Canton, N.Y., and features the top 10 teams in USCAA national rankings This selection represents the seventh consecutive trip the volleyball program will make to the event. “I am incredibly proud of this team and what they have accomplished,” said UC Clermont coach Joe Harpring. “We started the season rather slowly, but the players really worked hard and gelled into an outstanding team. They have earned this opportunity and look forward to the challenge.” UC Clermont’s highest finish to date was the Final Four in 2009. The UC Clermont volleyball team bid farewell to two outstanding seniors – libero Rachel Ferguson (Norwood) and middle hitter Rachel Hays (Amelia) on Senior Night. After the festivities, the team began play against NCAA D-II program Central State. The match was a much tighter affair than the first meeting this season between the teams. Clermont was able to prevail, but by a close 25-17, 25-20, 25-19 score. The Cougars registered 46 digs and added nine service aces in the victory. With the win, the Cougars raised their record to 19-5 with two regular season games to play.

McNick teams prove to be tough in playoffs By Nick Dududukovich It’s late in the fall sports seasons, yet the McNicholas Rockets are still making waves. Heading into the week of Oct 22, both boys and girls soccer teams, as well as the volleyball team were still a force in postseason play.


Just like they have all season, the McNicholas High School volleyball team continues to roll. In just three games, the Rockets eliminated Dayton Chaminade-Julienne for a Division II district championship, 25-22, 26-24, 27-25, Oct. 27 at Kettering Fairmont High School. McNick head coach Denny Murphy credited the team’s grueling practice as one of the reasons the squad advanced to the regional semifinals. “We work on them harder in practice than what they’ll ever play in a game,” he said, specifying their “15 Minutes of Fun” 6on-6 drill in which the team runs every time the ball hits the floor. “We worked so hard for this,” said senior outside hitter Brooke Logan, the Girls Greater Cincinnati League Grey Central Division Player of the Year. McNicholas (23-1), the Enquirer’s Division II coaches’ poll champion and the No.2 team in the state

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Won’t let you down

Nov. 6 is Election Day and I hope you’ll vote for my dad, John Becker, as your next state representative. My main reason for supporting him is that he is firmly pro-life. He’s raised me to believe that a child’s life begins at the moment of fertilization, and its rights deserve to be protected. With his election to the state legislature, he can help save innocent lives. Your vote for my dad is a vote to save children’s lives. If you need another reason to vote for John Becker, consider that he is very pro-business. He always tells me that “there’s no such thing as a free lunch,” and he follows through on that philosophy. If you want something, you have to work for it. I would know. If I want money from him, I’d better get out there and cut the grass. So, as we’re quickly approaching Election Day, please vote for my dad, John Becker. If you want to learn more about his values, visit his website at Go check it out. I built it. When push comes to shove, my dad has never let me down. And John Becker won’t let you down either. Sarah Becker Union Township

I've known John Becker for several years and want to add my voice to the large number of his supporters in his run for Ohio's 65th House District. The area includes the cities of Milford and Loveland (inside Clermont County) and the townships of Union, Miami, Goshen, Stonelick, and Wayne. Two of the key areas, which have gained my support, is his background in financial matters giving him a solid footing for understanding fiscal issues and his stand for traditional American values. Both of these are needed at the state level to continue to reign in the free spending from years gone by and to focus reve-

Keep safety services

I have lived in Goshen for 24 years, raised a family here and enjoyed the safe comforts our rural/suburban community offers. In the past few years, my wife and I have become more involved in the community and after attending the Citizens Police Academy we learned more about our police, fire and ambulance services. What I have learned is Goshen, although perceived as a quiet sleepy little town, has a very busy safety force. Our police officers, firefighters and paramedics respond to dozens of calls daily ranging from burglaries to keys locked in a car, from heart attacks, auto accidents and fires. Over the past four years, the townships revenue and budget has gone down

CH@TROOM Oct. 24 question What is the scariest movie you ever saw or scariest book you ever read? What made it so scary?

“The scariest movie that I have ever seen is a reality movie that I would call 'Life in the United States.’ It is realitybased and a true horror. I have never been so disappointed in the choice that I made four years ago to be a part of this unbelievable frightmare. "We continue to spend money that doesn't exist. We continue to rob future generations of the choice of a college education due to costs that no one can possibly afford. If one is fortunate enough to get out with no debt they can look forward to a dismal job market. We believe statistics and figures that have been collected utilizing such convoluted methods and justifications no one can possibly understand or comprehend them. "If life right now doesn't scare you then you truly do not live in the real world.” J.J. “What is the scariest book I ever read? That's easy: It was called 'Hostage to the Devil,’ and it was written by a deceased priest named Malachi Martin. It dealt with the possession and

exorcism of five contemporary Americans, and it was not fiction. “The book made such an impression on me that I tried (successfully) to contact Father Martin through his publisher, and we exchanged several letters and phone calls which helped me confirm his credibility. “I have struggled with faith in the supernatural because I look for absolute scientific proof, but that proof has not been forthcoming. However, this book convinced me that the devil is real – there is no other answer. If the devil is real, then so is God.” Bill B. See CH@TROOM, Page A10

while the cost to provide services continues to rise. Currently, five full-time safety force employees have retired and were not replaced due to lack of funds, if this trend continues Goshen will be unable to provide 24-hour police, fire and EMS protection at the level we have become use to. It has been 10 years since Goshen taxpayers had an increase in taxes; please join me in voting yes for the Goshen Safety Services Levy. It will keep the current level of protection we need. Ken Huffaker Goshen Township

Becker knows the district

When casting your vote this year for 65th District state representative, ask yourself the following: Do I want a Pro Life, Pro 2nd Amendment, Pro Business, Limited Government, fiscal conservative community leader? If your answer is yes then please join me in voting for John Becker. John has been active in the 65th District attending area meetings whether its in Milford, Union Township, West Clermont, Wayne Township, Loveland, Goshen or Stonelick Township. He attends these meetings to find out what’s going on, how he can help and to be thoroughly informed. John will do a fantastic job as the representative of the 65th District because he knows the people and the issues near and dear to our hearts. Hans R. Jeschke Eastgate

Vote for Becker

Please vote for our son-in-law, John Becker, for state representative. There is so much that he does for so many. And he asks for nothing in return. He helps to take care of us. We’re 88 years old. He also visits with his 91year-old mother, who lives in Kentucky, four or five times each week. He visits friends in the hospital and helps them in any way that he can. He also attends church services twice weekly

and participates in two different Bible study groups. John Becker is very generous with his time and money when it comes to helping others. He believes that helping the poor and needy is a Christian thing to do when it comes from personal resources rather than government policy. However, he is frugal when it comes to spending money on himself. For example, he drives a 16-year-old Honda Civic with 256,000 miles on it and somehow manages to eke out 37 MPG. There is no question in our minds that John Becker will be just as frugal with the taxpayers’ money as he is with his own. This Tuesday, please vote for our son-in-law, John Becker. Your wallet will thank you. Walter and Dorothy McLean Mt. Washington

Safety levy

FACT: Goshen Township service departments (fire, police, EMS) had 20,000-plus calls in 2011. This averages 55 calls per day for these men and women that are working hard to protect the residents of Goshen Township. This Nov. 6 is a very important election facing Goshen Township residents. The safety levy is important to pass by voting “yes” just to maintain the current level of service for the fire, EMS and police departments. Current service means having one police officer working per 12 hour shift. This level is a 50-percent drop in service as Goshen once had two police officers on duty per shift. Police staffing has been reduced by 25 percent by attrition, and sadly there is no money in the township budget to replace those officers. Goshen Township is a 36square-mile community and policing with one officer is inefficient, dangerous and shameful, to say the least. We need to keep our police, fire and EMS personnel safe as they are working hard and are forced to do more with less to protect Goshen residents.

Vote “yes” for the safety levy to keep our community safe and service departments fully staffed. Gale Perkins Goshen Township

Support police, fire

The Goshen Township community is being asked to support police, fire and ambulance at the polls on Nov. 6. The last time these departments received additional funding was 2002. You may have seen the yard signs that read, “Yes for Safety.” On behalf of the police department, I can tell you that “Yes for Safety” means two things. First, the safety of our community; our staffing levels have dropped to pre-2003 levels while at the same time the demand for service is higher than ever. Today, we frequently have only one officer on duty because of our losses. A “yes” vote will allow us to add several part-time officers to offset our loss of full-time staff. Second, “Yes for Safety” refers to the safety of our officers; our police officers deal with the worstof-the-worst who are often drunk, drugged or mentally unstable; it is absolutely critical that we have back-up close by for the safety of our officers and others. I recognize and accept that we - police officers - have agreed to put our lives on the line; however, the risk to our police officers is unreasonably high. Please vote “yes” for the Goshen safety levy for your safety and ours. Bob Rose Goshen Township police captain Wayne Township

End the Republican stranglehold in county There are many reasons why people should end the Republican stranglehold on county government, just how many Archie Wilsons and Mary Walkers can we tolerate? The classic definition of insanity is to repeat the same action and expect a different outcome. As my pappy used to say, “The only time a leopard changes its spots is when it moves to a different tree.” Are we going to go down the list until we finally get an honest Republican? I could drive the Republicans back to integrity with one simple law change: When a commissioner or elected official goes bad, have the opposition party choose the replacement. Republicans replace their malefactors with other Republicans in areas where they are in control, and the Democrats do the same in areas where the control is theirs. But I am not running to make sensible rules, I am running for commissioner to accomplish the same end. To be clear, I am not accusing my opponent of being dishonest. I am saying that in a situation where one party is in complete control, the focus tends to shift

It’s not a stated goal of organizations to protect themselves at all costs - it’s what they do. No one would have thought that Penn State would conspire to hide Jerry Sandusky’s criminal behavior from the public, but it did. Such cover-ups are driven by a desire to protect the party - and save their jobs. What I am saying is that Republicans will be much less inclined to expose malfeasance than would I. Republicans would not hesitate to point out my errors should such transpire. There are important choices facing the county, one of them shouldn’t be whether or not to set aside funds to pay for a permanent special prosecutor. The

commissioners are making significant changes to the organization of the county as this election plays out. It is hard to know if their actions are good or ill, because they have not been forthcoming about what they are doing, other than making sure Clermont County is open for business. Their schemes could leave us with more business activity but less tax revenue. This is something that should have been discussed, but it was not. Who will benefit from their new Port Authority? It sounds good, but port authorities are like lethal weapons. You have to point them in the right direction and keep them under control for them to be of use. Used wrongly, we could easily wind up being more dependent on levies than we are now. We could eventually be forced to choose between increasing property taxes or cutting services. Are schools, fire and police a good tradeoff for non-tax-paying business growth? Vote Harding for county commissioner.

Leonard Harding of Milford is the Democratic candidate for Clermont County commissioner.

Many of us have already voted, but most of us will go to our polling locations next Tuesday. When you vote, please vote for me, for state representative, for Ohio’s 65th House District. The area includes the cities of Milford and Loveland (inside Clermont County) and the townships of Union, Miami, Goshen, Stonelick, and Wayne. I’m running for the office of state representative so that I can continue to support and promote the conservative values of Clermont County in Columbus. My platform is very simple: Pro-Life, Pro-Gun, Limited Government and Lower Taxes. My MBA, with an emphasis in taxation, was earned at Xavier University. I also hold a CTP (Certified Treasury Professional), a school district treasurer’s license, and am a graduate of the Union Township Citizens’ Police Academy. My 30-year career in the private sector has spanned four major industries: Manufacturing, healthcare insurance, banking/ financial and charter education. I’ve been involved with the Clermont County Republican Party since 1993. I’ve also served the Ohio Republican Party from 2004 until 2012.

John Becker of Union Township is the Republican candidate for the 65th Ohio House District.

I am humbled to be the 2012 candidate who has lived in Clermont County and District 65 my whole life. This experience has given me long-term insights into the challenges, history and issues facing our district. I have been blessed with great parents, children, family, friends and teachers. I am deeply appreciative to each and every one of them for sharing life with me and making me a better human being. My life’s purpose, mission and vision have always been to make the world a better place and that is why I am seeking office. The changes we seek will have little effect unless we have forward-minded representatives at the state and local levels. Ohio’s future depends on the people and plans we vote for. I am honored to have outstanding endorsements, which can be reviewed at my website: Public education plays a critical role in the revitalization of our local economy. Public school funding in Ohio has been found unconstitutional five times by the Ohio Supreme Court. Schools have been enslaved by more cuts despite the importance they play. I morally oppose Gov. Kasich’s $2 billion in cuts to public schools and will work to retrieve lost funds. The answer to saving our public schools begins with a constitutional method of public school funding. In some states, levies are automatically passed and school funding is provided for by amendment to the state constitution. These measures take into account a variety of metrics, including area income, population, as well as more economic and environmental factors. In some of these cases, levies are designed to be equal to neighboring districts and to spur competition. A progressive

smart tax is the only form of taxation proven to work and support modern democracies, education and growth. While taxes are important, jobs and economic policies Steve Myers are even more imCOMMUNITY portant. I strongly PRESS GUEST COLUMNIST opposed any and all parts of SB5 which would negatively affect both private and public sector livable wage jobs. This type of public policy derails any true progress on growing and retaining livable wage opportunities. My Livable Wage Jobs Plan, Jobs|Clermont, has 12,000 new jobs created in southern Ohio by the close of 2015 as part of the Democratic jobs bill. Visit my website to read the jobs plan, including manufacturing, clean energy and environmental restoration. I encourage every Ohio voter to learn about the candidates/issues and exercise your constitutional right by voting from the bottom of the ballot up. This assures that your vote will count on every issue and race. I would appreciate your support and vote and I ask for your vote on Nov. 6. I am a positive leader who puts faith over fear and believes in America. I will never apologize for my middle class values and will always fight with everything I have for the hard working citizens and families of Ohio, Clermont County and District 65.

CH@TROOM Continued from Page A9

“It's a close call between ‘The Shining’ and ‘The Silence of the Lambs,’ but I have to give the edge to the latter. The scene where Jodie Foster is groping around in the dark basement and the psycho is right behind her wearing night-vision goggles made me jump out of my seat! A spectacular acting job by Foster!” R.W.J. “The scariest movie I have ever seen is Danny Boyle's '28 Days Later.’ It was released in 2002 before the current zombie genre was in full swing, and the premise of a worldwide epidemic affecting huge populations seemed very possible, especially with talk of Ebola, SARS and other diseases in the news. “Also, I watched it very late at night in a totally dark house. After we got done watching it my friend jumped up, quickly turned on all the rooms lights, and said 'That's it, we have to watch 'Old School' before we go to bed or else none of us will sleep tonight.” I.P. “I would say the scariest movie was back in the ’70s called, 'The Town That Dreaded Sundown!' Just the effects made you cringe.” O.H.R. “‘The Silence of the Lambs’ gave me the creeps. From Hannibal Lector to Buffalo Bill's basement I was so scared I never wanted to see it again – and haven't!” R.V. “'Pinocchio.’ Saw when just a little tyke. Had nightmares about being one of the bad boys and I would grow a donkey tail and ears. Lasted for years. “This was all due to guilt imagined and real brought about by my mother and her nun cohorts. Just wish I knew what I was so guilty about.” J.Z.

“‘The Birds’ – anyone that saw this movie at the drive-in and being in a convertible should understand. I think every convertible top went up and windows closed within the first15-20 minutes of the movie. Oh what memories, and I don't mean from the back seat.” D.J. “The scariest movie I ever saw was the ‘Exorcist.’ Everything about that movie was creepy. I guess being brought up Catholic and their belief in exorcism made it more real to me. I don't think there will ever be another movie like that one.” D.D.

Oct. 17 question Have you watched and will you watch the presidential and vice presidential debates? How will the debates affect your decisions?

“Yes, I have watched a little of the debates. It is a tough thing to watch right before a person is trying to fall asleep at night. “I am not thrilled with the lack of presidential behavior by both candidates. They seem to set on bashing each other and trying to convince the public that the other guy is wrong and I am right. This type of behavior sums up what is wrong with today's government and its leaders. We have become a nation of red and blue states. Elected officials vote in line with their party not necessarily what is best for the nation or what the majority they represent want. Compromise is the key. I have been a long time admirer of Olympia Snowe. She said it best, 'Public service is a most honorable pursuit and so is bipartisanship.’” M.A. Huculak “I am watching the debates, but I have already made my mind up on who I will vote for. I am curious to see if Obama can debate without a teleprompter. In the last debate he looked totally lost.” D.D.

“Yes I have, and yes I shall. My decision was made years ago to dump the socialist poseur president!” J.G. “Yes, I have watched them. I have been watching the conduct of the president and vice president since they were installed in their offices in 2009, so I am quite aware of why I feel the way I do about them. “My mind was made up long ago and everything I've seen and heard in the last few months because of the campaign merely reinforces my views, and thus, the debates will only affirm my opinion. “Frankly, it surprises me that anyone who has not been in a coma for four years could not have made up their mind already.” Bill B. “I am watching the debates, more out of curiosity than anything else. I already voted for Romney, basically because he at least has an outside chance of getting us out of this mess our economy is in. It is in a hole and it is pretty clear that Obama will just keep digging, with neverending spending and more and more debt.” T.H. “I watched the first two, and they were certainly eye openers! “Romney was articulate and informed with the presence to make an impressive president, something I haven't seen portrayed until now. “Joe Biden looked like a lunatic, laughing at questions about Iran, Lebanon and a host of other very serious topics. I'm guessing that the Jewish population, both here and in Israel, don't find any of it funny. They're under constant threat, and most likely never go to bed at peace. And this man is one step from being president in a crisis? “He was rude, condescending, and should be ashamed of himself. He wasn't even polite to the moderator, shaking his finger at her and shouting, and in-

terrupting to the point that she lost control, not to mention making it very difficult to listen to what Paul Ryan had to say. It looked like a smoke screen to me. “What was sad was the fact that I watched with the intention of becoming more informed, and I was assaulted with a president who seemed to care less about being there and listening to the answers rather than repeating the same non-relative statements over and over. Maybe his teleprompter was missing!” J.K. “Yes, I watched the first two. I will not watch the rest. I don't need too. My decision has been made for quite some time and the debates will not affect my decision. Anyone that is still indecisive about how they will vote hasn't been paying attention.” J.S.K. “I watched the first presidential debate, and I may watch the second. It won't affect how I vote. I just watch in incredulous fascination as Mitt Romney tries to lie his way to the presidency and present a tax plan that is mathematically impossible (although maybe using some of the new Cayman Island math it could work). “Also, I enjoy watching him play a sincerely empathetic person, especially since if he gets elected his policies will help decimate the poor, the elderly, veterans, students along with teachers, police and firemen. “It is sort of like watching the devil dress up in a Christian empathy costume for Halloween. Entertaining, interesting, yet at the core, manipulative and evil.” I.P. “I've watched most of the previous two debates, but even though my mind is already made up I plan to watch the remaining debates.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Continued from Page A9

Christian, a home-school dad, a stand up guy and conservative on social and fiscal issues. Becker’s long list of endorsements from pro-life, pro-gun and other groups speaks to his commitment on those issues. He has received an “A” rating from the National Rifle Association. John shares my belief that the second amendment is the ultimate insurance policy against tyranny and has always marveled at the wisdom of the founding fathers. Becker has demonstrated a commitment to Clermont County by attending commissioner, trustee, council and school board meetings to learn and understand the challenges that they face. He was Tea Party long before the Tea Party existed. As an example, he stood alone at a West Clermont school board meeting to speak out against a proposed income tax. John Becker keeps his constituents informed by authoring “The Becker Report.” His communication skills are Reaganesque. Becker returns every phone call and e-mail that he receives. Contact him at or visit Dan Unger Colerain Township

Becker works hard

In this very important election, we would like to show our support and endorsement for John Becker as our state representative for the 65th District of Ohio. John has worked hard for this position, and with his values and platform for voters in Clermont County, we are sure he will represent all constituents well. Recently the Speaker of the House came to speak at one of John’s fund raisers. This honor is not given to all, and speaks highly of John and his many qualifications. Please join us with your support.

TQL is Pacesetter By Roxanna Blevins



Clermont Chamber of Commerce Nov. 8 will present Total Quality Logistics (TQL) with the Corporate Pacesetter Award during the annual awards ceremony. TQL shows its dedication and concern for the community through the company’s involvement in local benefit events, such as the Gather on the Green golf outing and the recent UC Clermont 5K run. Executive Vice President Kerry Byrne said the business and its employees are involved in five to 10 events or sponsorships per month. A committee, known as TQL Cares, helps determine where the company’s focus should be within the community, he said. “The TQL Cares Committee has done a great job,” Byrne said. In addition to the company’s

This year’s Pacesetter Awards dinner will be Thursday, Nov. 8, at Holiday Inn & Suites Cincinnati-Eastgate, 4501 Eastgate Blvd. The event will begin at 5:30 p.m. Registration will remain open through the day of the event. Reservations are $75 for Chamber members, or $90 for nonmembers. Visit

local community involvement, employees support regional nonprofit organizations, such as Give Back Cincinnati's “Paint the Town” program. The company also adopted a portion of Interstate 275. “Employees can be seen on highway berms picking up trash,” said chamber President Matthew Van Sant. This month, TQL was lit with pink lights for Breast Cancer

Awareness Month. The company also has raised about $15,000 to $20,000 to donate to the American Cancer Society. Byrne said the volunteer and financial contributions are part of the company’s culture. While the involvement and support benefits other organizations, it also encourages growth and team-building within the company. TQL leaders are seeking growth not only in their employees, but also for the company as a whole. Byrne said expansion is “fairly imminent.” He said he anticipates the beginning of construction for a new building next year, but is not sure precisely when. “It’s a question of when to start building so that we can fill it mostly when it’s finished,” Byrne said. Van Sant said the job creation the company offers is a factor that contributed to their selection for the award.

Spinney guided Clermont County By John Seney

CLERMONT CO. — When David Spinney was working as Milford city manager in the early 1990s, county Commissioner Martha Dorsey told him if he ever thought about leaving Milford, to give her a call. Spinney said he called her in 1994, and that led to him becoming assistant county administrator. The Clermont Chamber of Commerce Nov. 8 will present Spinney with an award named named after Dorsey, the 2012 Martha Dorsey Public Servant Pacesetter Award. The award is presented to an individual formerly engaged in public service who has dis-

played genuine concern for the welfare of Clermont County and its residents and has exhibited outstanding qualities of citiSpinney zenship and leadership. Dorsey, who served as commissioner for 16 years, was the winner of the first award, in 2001. “When I look at the people who won this award in the past, I am honored to be in that group,” he said. After serving as assistant administrator, Spinney was named county administrator in 2001. He retired Jan. 1, 2012. In retirement, Spinney is

working part-time as director of the Butler County Transportation Improvement District. He served on the board of the Clermont County Transportation Improvement District while administrator. “The thing I enjoyed most (as Clermont County administrator) was my time as chairman of the transportation improvement district,” Spinney said. “We really got a lot accomplished.” More important than the specific road projects was the collaboration the transportation improvement district fostered, he said. “We got the community to focus on cooperation. We got a lot more accomplished than everybody doing it on their own,” Spinney said.

BATAVIA TWP. — Hal Shevers believes a person should get an education, make an living and then give back to the community. “Learn, earn and return” is how he explains his philosophy in three short words. Sheevers’ dedication to giving back to the community is a reason he has been selected to receive the Edward J. Parish Pacesetter Award Thursday, Nov. 8, from the Clermont Chamber of Commerce. The award recognizes an individual who has exhibited outstanding qualities of character, citizenship and leadership in addition to having genuine concern for the welfare of Clermont County and its residents. One way Shevers has given back is through the Sporty’s Foundation, which he started as a way to help young people earn a living in the aviation industry. The foundation awards scholarships and funds programs in aviation at UC Clermont College. “We want to attract young, sharp people into a fantastic industry,” Shevers said. Gregory Sojka, dean of UC Clermont, said the aviation program at the college is unique. “Students get training and get a pilot’s license as part of earning a business degree,” he said. “They do the work here (at the college) for the business degree and then learn to fly at the airport. It’s a unique, innovative program.” Sojka said through direct scholarships and by defraying the cost of flight training, Shevers over the years has contributed hundreds of thousands of dollars to the UC aviation program. “I’m thrilled he’s been recognized,” Sojka said. “He is a visionary.” Shevers is founder and chairman of Sporty’s Pilot Shop, Sporty’s Academy and Sportsman’s Market, all based at the Clermont County Airport. He earned his private pilot’s certificate while attending Purdue University. Except for a brief stint working for Cincinnati Milacron, he has spent most of his life working in aviation. Through the foundation and corporate contributions, Shevers supports a number of organizations, including United Way, Boy Scouts, the chamber, Rotary Club, Lions Club, UC and Xavier University. “I don’t believe in outright gifts,” Shevers said. “I like to direct the gifts to good projects.” One of the foundation’s gifts

was used in 2011 to purchase an electronic sign at UC Clermont College. He also gave money to create a nature trail at the college, he said. Shevers said his involvement in the Batavia Rotary Club led to helping with relief efforts after the March tornado in Moscow. He began his business in 1960 at Lunken Airport in Cincinnati, where he marketed to pilots a small radio that picked up airport control towers. The trunk of his car was his first warehouse. Shevers supplemented his income by giving flight and ground school instruction. In 1971, he moved the Sporty’s operations to Clermont County Airport. In 2007, Shevers was inducted into the National Association of Flight Instructors Hall of Fame in recognition of his 40 years as a flight instructor and producer of educational products and materials for pilots. “The focus of our business remains educational,” Shevers said. “We want to introduce the next generation of pilots to aviation.” Shevers continues to be involved in the daily operations of his businesses, including serving as chief pilot. “It’s the best job in the country,” he said. His corporation runs the airport through Eastern Cincinnati Aviation. “We’re very happy to be in Clermont County,” Shevers said. “We’re very happy to run the airport for Clermont County. It’s the nicest county airport in Ohio,” he said. Shevers would like to see the airport’s runway expanded to serve faster corporate jets. “We need to attract good paying jobs to Clermont County,” he said. “To do that we have to have executive transportation in and out.”

OCTOBER 31, 2012 • CJN-MMA • B3

Start the holidays by making brandied fruit Around the first week of the holiday season, my kitchen looks like I’m moving in, or out. I pull out my pantry spices and herbs and check for freshness. I do an inventory of nuts, chocolates and candies needed for holiday baking. Rita There’s Heikenfeld nothing RITA’S KITCHEN worse than being in the middle of a holiday project and not having the right ingredients. It’s the time of year there are good sales on these items, so stock up.

Brandied fruit starter

This is one of those recipes that creates memories and starts traditions. You need to start this within about a month before using or giving as a gift from the kitchen. This is easy and beautiful. Now if the cans of fruit are a bit less, or more, than what’s listed below, that’s OK. And packed in juice or syrup is OK, too. I used apricot brandy but plain or peach is OK.

16 oz. can diced peaches, drained (or sliced peaches diced) 16 oz. can apricot halves, drained and cut in fourths 20 oz. can pineapple tidbits, drained 10 oz. jar maraschino cherry halves, drained 11⁄4 cups sugar 11⁄2 cups brandy

Combine everything together. Pour into glass jar or glass bowl, cover and let sit at room temperature at least three weeks before serving, stirring twice a week.

Add 1 tablespoon chipotle chilies (I take the whole can, process the mixture in a food processor and then it’s easy to measure) or less if you want. Cook for a couple of minutes, then add beans, 1 cup water and juice. Simmer and mash mixture a few times until slightly thickened, about 15 minutes. Season with salt. Brandied fruit starter contains pantry staple canned fruits. THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD.

ON THE AIR At 9:15 a.m. Tuesday, Nov. 13, I’ll be talking with Tracey Johnson and Frank Marzullo on Fox 19’s Morning Xtra show about essentials needed for the holiday kitchen, including pantry staples, baking equipment, etc.

Serve over ice cream or cake. Reserve at least 1 cup starter at all times. To replenish starter: To your reserved cup of fruit, add 1 cup sugar and one of the first four ingredients every one to three weeks, alternating fruit each time. I’ll taste the mixture and if it seems like it needs more brandy, I’ll add a bit. Cover and let stand at room temperature at least three days before serving each time starter is replenished.

Breakfast pizza

Fun for kids and nice for the weekend. Substitute turkey sausage if you like.

8 oz. can refrigerated crescent rolls 1 pound pork sausage, cooked and drained (can do ahead) 2 cups shredded favorite cheese: I like cheddar and mozzarella

5 large eggs, lightly beaten 1 ⁄2 cup milk 3 ⁄4 teaspoon dried oregano Bit of salt and several grindings pepper (optional)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Unroll crescent rolls, separating into eight triangles. Place with points toward center on sprayed 12-inch pizza pan. Press perforations together to form crust. Bake 8 minutes on lowest rack. Remove and reduce temperature to 350 degrees. Spoon sausage over dough and sprinkle with cheeses. Combine eggs, milk and seasonings. Carefully pour over sausage mixture starting in the middle. Bake 30-35 minutes or until crust is golden. Serves 6-8.

Smoky black beans For Lindsey B., who wanted to make a homemade version for filling burritos.

Readers want to know

Why do recipes list unsalted butter, then ask for salt? The USDA lets dairy processors vary the amount of salt they add. It can be 1.5 percent to 2 percent and as high as 3 percent. You can’t be sure how much salt the butter you’re using will add to a recipe. I like using unsalted butter because it allows me to control the amount of salt in a dish. Unsalted butter is more fresh than salted, since salt act as a preservative. Store extra unsalted butter in the freezer.

BATAVIA — The final harvest total for UC Clermont’s Community Garden was 1,460 pounds - all donated to local churches, community shelters and food pantries. This brings the threeyear community garden total to 3,841 pounds of food grown and donated through the effort of students, community volunteers, faculty and staff. “Each year, the community garden makes more of an impact on not only the community, but also on faculty and students. It is a phenomenal ongoing college project because it involves so many service learning classes and brings the college together each year,” said Barbara Wallace, director of college success program and service learning. “During the summer with storms blowing our shed down the field, breaking our electric fence and animals feasting on our

Chessy knows who has her treats » Howdy folks, Last week, “Chessy” would sit on Ruth Ann’s lap and eat her treats, then come to my lap and sleep. She has our number. This cat is such a blessing. We had three cats and one was 17 years old when he died. One young cat was not happy when the old one died so he left. We think one of them was gotten by coyotes. That cat loved to roam the woods at night. The good Lord knew we needed a cat so here is Chessy. She likes to lay on top of the truck, then get down in the truck bed, then after a while go get in the pontoon to sleep.

Last Saturday, Ruth Ann and I set up at a craft show in Madeira at the St. Gertrude George Church. Rooks This was a OLE FISHERMAN beautiful church. This was the first time we had been to this craft show, and we will probably be there next year. The folks were so friendly and helpful. Thanks. Last Sunday, was a busy day for us. After Sunday school, Ruth Ann and I were greeters at the

church door, then we sang with the choir and gave the morning prayer during the third service. We left and came home and picked up the four pies Ruth Ann had made and went to Debby and Bob’s for a party for three birthdays and an anniversary. Both of our great grandchildren were there, plus of course our daughters, sons-in-laws and grandchildren, and Bob’s parents. What a great time. Then we left there and went to the Bethel United Methodist Church for a wedding open house for a couple of “kids.” They both have lost their spouses and now enjoy each other’s company. Nancy and Bill both are very involved in the church. Nancy was telling folks Bill always wanted to ride in one of these big combines, so she talked to folks at Nicholsville, and got the OK for this surprise. After the open house, Nancy and Bill went to a farm on Swope Road, where the Stroubs were combining soybeans. The arrangements had been made by a young lady, Brenda. We talked to Bill the next day and he was still excited about this surprise that Nancy, his wife, had set up for him. When I talked to Bill, he said Nancy climbed up in the cab of that combine with her wedding dress on and had lots of questions for the operator. This was wonderful. Thanks to the Stroubs for this surprise. When we read the county paper and there is always an article about food. It sure makes me wanting

for Ruth Ann to try some of these recipes that a lovely lady, Rita Heikenfeld, puts in the paper. Sometimes we see her on TV, on Channel 19 news. Thanks Rita. Now folks it won’t be long before Thanksgiving. There will be some folks that need some help with food. So maybe your neighbors or someone they know needs some help. The Good Lord expects us to be helpful. The churches are doing their part by having free meals for folks. The Bethel United Methodist Church has a free meal each Saturday and it is well attended. The Bethel Ministerial Association has been a strong supporter for folks in need. Also the Bethel Lions Club helps support the Kitchen of Hope. The Batavia Faith United Methodist Church has a free meal the third Saturday of each month. This past third Saturday, the meal was changed until the fourth Saturday due to a 50th anniversary celebration for Larry and Bonnie Vaughn. Congratulations folks. When a celebration for 50 years of wedded bliss is held, we need to give the Good Lord many thanks and praise Him. The Ole Fisherman and wife say congratulations kids. Start your week by going to the house of worship of your choice and praise the Good Lord. God bless all. More later.

We live in an area which is known for very cold winters. Our facility is nearly 7000 square feet in area. When we began to utilize the first unit we were amazed to see how even the heat was for the entire living room area. We ordered a second and a third unit which now warms the entire home. Much to our surprise we are saving over $250 a month and had the lowest expense for heating we have ever experienced here. I would heartily recommend your products to anybody who is interested in really nice, even heat in their home and also interested in saving on their utility expenses. Dennis Crystal, Troy, MT (Retired Airline Pilot)

Enclosed you will find printouts of our electric bill and gas/heating/cooking bills for 2007 - 2008. Our gas company, AmeriGas, stated that more money was saved than would show up because of the cost going up. We would turn the gas on early in the morning and turn it down to 60 degrees; We would use the EdenPURE ® heaters from then on and they provided such warmth and cozy heat. Many of our friends have informed me recently that they are going to purchase these heaters for their homes this winter. Gloria D. Smith, Boydton, VA (Retired Elementary Principal)

EdenPURE reopens Ohio factory creates 250 new jobs ®

New models shipped direct from warehouse at 49% savings Richard Karn, North Canton, Ohio I was fortunate enough to attend the grand opening of the new EdenPURE ® factory in North Canton, Ohio. The new plant brought hundreds of new jobs back to Ohio and reversed the common practice of sending Midwest manufacturing jobs to China. Now, EdenPURE® continues to ramp up production for the coming Winter with exciting new models and hundreds of new employees as this Made in America success story continues to grow. American Labor, American Quality With over 3 million portable heaters sold EdenPURE® is the best selling portable infrared heating system in North America. However, like any classic, EdenPURE® has dozens of would-be competitors who create Asian copies at low prices using cheap, foreign labor. Don’t be fooled by these imitations. Look for the EdenPURE® logo and the Made in North Canton, Ohio stamp. Save like millions of others on your heating bills and say “NO” to cheap foreign imitators. I spoke with Neil Tyburk the Chief Designer and President of EdenPURE ®’s North Canton plant who is very direct in his beliefs. “We have better designs, better materials and a better work force. We can kick their butts in production and quality. The only advantage they have is cheap labor.” Save up to 49% on 2013 EdenPURE®s Now readers can save up to 49% ($229 the largest savings ever on new EdenPURE ®s). EdenPURE ® is not just the best-selling portable heating system in North America. As an EdenPURE® owner I rank EdenPURE ® #1 for quality, safety and efficiency. And now is the perfect time to save like never before on our expanded 2013 EdenPURE® line made in our brand new North Canton, Ohio facility. With two models EdenPURE ® can meet all of your heating requirements 365 days a year. We receive thousands of letters from satisfied customers who share their heating testimonials many of which you can view at our website This Summer we even followed up with EdenPURE® customers from 5 years ago like Gloria Smith (see her original testimony above) who are still just as enthusiastic and in some instances saved thousands of dollars versus costly propane. Gloria Smith Interview May 20, 2012 “My name is Gloria Smith and I am a retired principal from Boydton, Virginia. I’ve been using EdenPURE® Heaters for 5 years. I think I saved at least $15,000 over a period of 5 years. And that’s proven with my bank statements because it’s documented. And I feel really great about using the EdenPURE® Heaters.” “Many people have called me from all over the country when they have seen the infomercials on TV. I’ve en-

Never be cold again

How it works:


Heats floor to the same temperature as ceiling. 1. Electricity ignites powerful SYLVANIA infrared lamp.



As Al Borland on Home Improvement I was the man with all the answers. However, as Richard Karn I still look for money saving and efficient heating in my home. I have an EdenPURE ® Infrared Portable Heater in my California home and like millions of others found it to be a supersafe, reliable source of portable heat all year long. joyed talking to them and I want everybody to save money in these hard economic times. I believe in paying it forward, so when you experience something good, you want to share it.” Stay Comfortable 365 Days a Year “Never be cold again” is the EdenPURE ® promise. EdenPURE® provides you insurance against the cold all year long. Stay comfortable on those unseasonably chilly evenings no matter the season. I live in California but believe me it gets cold at night. Keep your expensive furnace turned down until it’s absolutely necessary. And if we are fortunate enough to experience a mild winter as many of us did in the Midwest last year, you keep your furnace off all season and save even bigger. New, More Efficient Models The engineers at EdenPURE® listened to their millions of customers and somehow managed to improve the #1 portable heater in North America. Through old fashioned American ingenuity the new EdenPURE® line is more efficient to save you even more money. The EdenPURE® Personal Heater now heats a larger area, an increase from 350 square feet to 500 square feet. That’s a 30% increase in efficiency! And EdenPURE® is proud to introduce the 2013 Model 750. The new Model 750 is perfect for larger areas and heats up to 750 square feet. But the best thing about the Model 750 is the price. We priced the Model 750 at only $50 above the Personal Heater. This means you receive a 33% increase in performance for only $50. That’s American engineering at its best! We all know heating costs are expected to remain at record levels. The cost of

heating our homes and apartments will continue to be a significant burden on the family budget. The EdenPURE® can cut your heating bills and pay for itself in a matter of weeks, and then start putting a great deal of extra money in your pocket after that. Super Safe Infrared Heat Now remember, a major cause of residential fires in the United States is carelessness and faulty portable heaters. The choice of fire and safety professional, Captain Mike Hornby, the EdenPURE® has no exposed heating elements that can cause a fire. And a redundant home protection system that simply shuts the EdenPURE® down if it senses danger. That’s why grandparents and parents love the EdenPURE®. The outside of the EdenPURE® only gets warm to the touch so that it will not burn children or pets. And your pet may be just like my dog who has reserved a favorite spot near the EdenPURE ® . You see the EdenPURE ® uses infrared heat. And just as pets enjoy basking in a beam of sunlight they try to stay close to EdenPURE ® ’s “bonewarming” infrared heat. The Origin of EdenPURE® a Missouri Rancher’s Discovery American’s love to tinker. We are a nation of inventors from Benjamin Franklin to Thomas Edison. A Missouri horse breeder named John Jones was no exception. Jones lived in a large drafty old farmhouse with his family of five. They stayed warm on cold Missouri nights with an old coal furnace and plenty of blankets. Now Jones was always collecting scrap to use in his latest inventions and somewhere along the line he had picked up a large sheet of cured copper.

2. The quartz infrared lamp gently warms the patented copper heating chambers.

SYLVANIA is a registered trademark of OSRAM SYLVANIA Inc. used under license. Richard Karn is a paid spokesperson for EdenPURE®.

Jones stored the large copper sheet in his basement near the coal furnace he labored to fill every chilly morning. Jones noticed something peculiar. The coal furnace warmed the copper sheet and as the furnace cooled down the copper sheet stayed warm. In fact, the copper sheet stayed warm for many hours and heated much of the large basement. As Jones continued to develop a portable infrared heater he knew the copper was the secret ingredient that would make his heater different from all the rest. His copper heating chambers combined with the far infrared bulbs provided an efficient wave of “soft” heat over large areas. The breakthrough EdenPURE® infrared heating chamber was born. The Health Secret is in the Copper EdenPURE ® ’s engineers have taken Jones’ original concept through revolutionary changes. EdenFLOW™ technology uses copper heating chambers to take the energy provided by our special SYLVANIA infrared bulbs and distribute our famous soft heat evenly throughout the room. Now our copper isn’t ordinary. It’s 99.9% pure antimicrobial copper from an over 150 year old American owned company in Pennsylvania. Researchers have discovered copper as an antimicrobial is far more effective than stainless steel or even silver. That’s why our special antimicrobial copper is marked Cu+ and used in hospitals on touch surfaces. So your EdenPURE ® heater is continuously pushing soft, healthy, infrared heat throughout your room.
