Goshen Twp. businessman told to remove debris By John Seney

BATAVIA — Goshen Township businessman Donnie Combs was told Oct. 25 to remove 200 tons of debris from his property every month for the next three months or face jail time. Clermont County Common Pleas Judge Thomas Herman was scheduled to sentence Combs on a contempt charge for failing to clean up construction debris on his property at 1503

Ohio 28. Instead, he asked attorneys for Combs and the Clermont County General Health District to work out a plan to clean up the site. Herman’s order requires Combs to remove 200 tons every month for three months. He also is to cease dumping new debris at the site. The judge told Combs he is to allow inspectors from the health district full access to the property to monitor the cleanup.

“My hope is that in 90 days you will have seen the light,” Herman said. The judge asked Combs if he understood the order. “Yes, sir,” Combs answered. Herman said Combs was to continue the cleanup beyond the 90-day period. He said the court would assess the progress of the cleanup again in one year. David Schooler, who owns a property behind Combs’ business, told Herman he thought

Combs would continue to carry on his operation despite the court order. “He will not comply,” Schooler said. “If he does not respond to the court order, he will find himself behind bars,” Herman said. “I’m going to give him 90 days. I’m going to give him that opportunity.” Combs was found in contempt Sept. 23 for failing to comply with a permanent injunction issued in April 2010 ordering him to remove the debris.

CNE Senior Luncheon is just around the corner By Kellie Geist-May

STONELICK TWP. — Just as shops and restaurants are preparing for the holiday season, the Clermont Northeastern Local School District is getting ready to spread some Christmas cheer. The district staff is planning the 33rd annual Senior Luncheon. This year’s event will be at 11:30 a.m. Wednesday, Dec. 7, at CNE Middle School, 2792 U.S. 50. The Christmas-themed lunch includes a holiday dinner served by the students, a choral performance, YMCA presentation and more. “It’s just something we like to do for our seniors. I enjoy seeing the same people come back year after year and having the chance to show them what we do at CNE. It’s such a festive atmosphere and they get to see our kids in action,” said Assistant Superintendent Wayne Johnson, who helps plan the event. Seniors who would like to come to the lunch should RSVP to Johnson at 685-1401. Reservations are being taken now. The senior lunch started in 1979 when Jo Ann Beamer was the principal at the intermediate school. She ran the lunch until her retirement 25 years later. Kids in the junior high and high school honor society serve the turkey

Other students serve as greeters and help the seniors get from their cars to the gym. Johnson said it’s a great opportunity for the seniors to get back in the school and have some interaction with the young people. “Our kids are great and we love to showcase them. Many times the seniors are away from school kids for most of the year, so this gives them a chance to come to our buildings and spend

some time with us,” Johnson said. Each year there is a short speech relating to the senior community. This year’s speech will be a presentation by the Clermont County YMCA staff about the services they offer for older adults, he said. Long-time event sponsor Merchants National Bank is on board with the lunch again this year. “I’ve been in banking for 30 years and, to my knowledge, this is the only such event in this area. It’s unique and it’s something we want to support,” said Jim Evans,

executive vice president of Merchants National Bank. “It’s a wonderful community event for the seniors and it’s something I look forward to each year.” In addition to enjoying a turkey dinner, seniors who come to the lunch are sure to leave with an armful of goodies. Businesses throughout CNE - especially Kopp and Hawley Insurance, Shumard Hardware and Supply, Old Boston Pizza, Owensville IGA, National Bank & Trust, Park National Bank, and Blackburn Fetter & Myers - all make donations for giveaways and door prizes. Don Myers, of Blackburn Fetter & Myers, said his company has supported the lunch for several years. They are best known for giving away flower bulbs. “This event gets seniors out and into the school with the young people. It’s a wonderful connection in our community,” he said. “I think the lunch also helps the seniors make friends. When you get older and your friends pass away, you need a place to connect with other people. This is a great, once-a-year time to do that.” “We’re going to continue to support the program. I think Wayne Johnson and the folks at CNE do a great job putting the senior lunch together and I’m just thrilled to be able to be part of it,” Myers said.

area was conducted Oct. 14 by deputies from Brown and Clermont counties along with an aerial search conducted by the Highland County Sheriff’s Office, but Coci was not found. After exhausting any other possible leads as to Coci’s whereabouts, deputies returned to the scene Oct. 25 along with cadaver dogs and their handlers from the Grant County, Ky., Sheriff’s Office and the Erlanger, Ky., fire and EMS, Rodenberg said. The cadaver dog search teams found the remains of a man believed to be Coci. Det. Buddy Moore of the Brown County Sheriff’s Office said Coci’s remains were found in a wooded area about 300 yards from where his vehicle was found. The cause of death has not been determined, Moore said. The remains were sent to Montgomery County Coroner’s Office for further examination. Moore said the investigation is continuing.

Milford's Dalziel makes name for herself By Ben Walpole

MILFORD — AnneE Dalziel isn’t your typical kid. One look at the name ought to tell you that. No, it’s not a typo. Dalziel, the Milford High School cross country freshman phenom, decided she was sick of being Annie with an “ie” back in sixth grade. She was eating at a restaurant with her grandmother - the woman she is named after Anne Elizabeth Stewart. It was a restaurant where customers could write on the table, so Annie was doodling away when she made an important realization. “I thought it would be really cool if I had two capital letters in my name,” she said. Her grandmother played around with some letters, shortened Anne Elizabeth to AnneE and it clicked. “I was like, 'That looks really cool. I’m gonna use it,’” Dalziel

Milford High School freshman AnneE Dalziel earned FAVC Runner of the Year honors. THANKS TO BARB DALZIEL

remembers. And sure enough, she has. You can see her name – AnneE – on most any list of the top Division I girls cross country runners in the area. Dalziel won the Fort Ancient Valley Conference race, earning her league runner of the year honors, and

she placed fourth in the Division I district race a week later to secure a regional meet berth. People in the sport are learning her name, even if they still occasionally misspell it. “I don’t make a big deal out of it,” Dalziel said. “It’s just something I do for fun.” What she does make a big deal of is preparing for every race. She brings an analytical approach to the sport not often seen at the high school level. Despite only being a freshman, she already knows most of her varsity competition frighteningly well. She knows their times and race-day tendencies. “I’ve been pretty intense about learning the girls and knowing who’s who,” she said. “Once I know what teams are going to be there, I know who I have to beat and their running strategies and how they go it.” She then caters her plan accordingly. “I change it depending on who’s going to be there,” Dalziel said, “who I know has a good

kick and who I know might drop back in the last mile.” Milford head girls cross country coach Leah Evans hasn’t been surprised by Dalziel’s success this fall. Winning two middle school FAVC titles tends to create a buzz. Or as Evans put it – “I just knew that she was pretty studly little eighth grader.” Dalziel benefited from running with returning seniors Kristen Brady, a 2010 regional qualifier, Lorin Conti and Sara Savitz during the summer. “They took her along and showed her how to race,” Evans said. “She came into the program like a normal kid. I tried to balance between her being a freshman and not overdoing it, and pushing her so she could be successful this year. “She’s a good kid. She shows up to practice, works hard, doesn’t complain, does whatever you ask her.” Dalziel was born in Canada, where she lived for four years. She wound up in Milford when

her father, Dr. Tom Dalziel, took a position as a professor at the University Of Cincinnati. The running genes are strong in her family. AnneE’s mother, Barb, was a star athlete in her youth in Canada. She and brothers competed at the collegiate level for the University of Alberta. AnneE’s grandfather, Calvin Stewart, ran the St. George Marathon, Oct. 1, despite learning two weeks before the race that he had a broken back. He’s 66 years old. “I grew up on the track, running cross country and stuff like that,” Barb said. “My dad coached us. My aunt coached us for a lot of years. It’s fun to be able to pass it on,” she added, laughing, “and feel like all those years weren’t wasted.” And with three younger brothers and a younger sister, there are more Dalziel runners on their way, though no word on whether or not they have multiple capital letters in their first names or not. Not typical.

Milford soccer double-teams districts By Tony Meale

MILFORD — One is nice. Two is better. Milford High School knows all about it, as both its soccer teams have won district championships. The girls team defeated Troy 5-1 in the Division I district finals Oct. 27, while the boys team knocked off Centerville 2-0 Oct. 29. The Lady Eagles (16-2-1) boast an attacking, anyone-and-everyone style of offense that has paid dividends in the postseason. Milford has outscored the opposition 13-2 in three playoff matches and has been led by senior forward Morgan Wolcott, who has scored in four straight games and five of her last six. “We’ve done a good job of just finding the open man and finishing,” girls head coach Pat Winkler said. Juniors Kiersten Johnson (13 goals, nine assists) and Alyssa Wulker also scored against Troy, as did senior Paige Shiplett. Meanwhile, Caroline Brown (five goals, 12 assists) has done a superb job setting up her teammates. The Lady Eagles have posted shutouts in 12 of their 19 games and are led by senior goalie Maddie Bunnell and defender Meghan Canter. “Meghan’s a tough-as-nails kid, someone who combines skill and good soccer IQ and plays bigger than she is,” Winkler said. Milford faces Beavercreek in the regional semifinals Nov. 2 at Lakota East. If victorious, the Lady Eagles advance to the regional finals to play the winner of Ursuline vs. Centerville. Ursuline, along with Indian Hill – which are a combined 34-1-4 – are the only two teams that have beaten Milford this year.

Milford senior forward Kyle Grothaus takes control of the ball during the Eagles' 3-2 overtime sectional final win against Moeller at Kings High School, Oct. 25. Grothaus' goal in overtime would secure the win for Milford. NICK DUDUKOVICH/THE COMMUNITY PRESS

The Lady Eagles have won four straight league titles and are 25-1 in conference play during that time, last advanced to regionals in 2006. The boys have four players – Kyle Gorthaus, Sam Rodgers, Adam Hudson and John Nagle – who have scored at least nine goals this season. Grothaus, who has a team-high 12 assists, scored in the win over Centerville, as did Nagle. Milford advanced to the district finals after beating Winton Woods and Anderson by a combined 15-2 and then besting Moeller 3-2 in overtime. The Eagles, coached by Brian Croston, played Lakota West in the regional semifinals Nov. 1 after deadline. If victorious, they advance to the regional finals to play the winner of St. Xavier vs. Beavercreek Nov. 5 at Bellbrook The Eagles (15-3-2) are 8-0-2 in their last 10 matches and haven’t lost since September.

Lions roar to district title By Nick Dudukovich

BLUE ASH — The girls of the Ursuline Academy soccer team didn’t have to write on paper that they want to play for a state title. To head coach Colleen Dehring, the desired end to the 2011 season is obvious. “Who doesn’t want to be there in November in Columbus when it’s freezing cold, playing for a state championship? That’s what the girls want, and what I want, but you got to take it one day at a time,” Dehring said. The game-by-game approach has worked splendidly for the Lions this season.

Senior tailback Tyler Barney of Blanchester ran 24 times for 304 yards and four scores, while fellow senior Andy Lakes had 13 rushes for 127 yards to lead the Wildcats. CNE’s touchdowns were by Derek Schmidt and Dallas Miracle.

KENWOOD — The soccer staff at Moeller High School had hoped for a “Fuller” season. Unfortunately, that was derailed early in the season when returning all-state midfielder Jeffrey Fuller was injured with what was first believed to be a groin pull. When the injury didn’t respond, it was found that the 5-7 senior actually had a stress fracture in his pelvic bone. Because of that, Fuller didn’t play for Moeller this season until the first week of October. He did play in the sectional final for the Crusaders against Milford Oct. 25 and scored, but the Eagles prevailed in overtime to end Moeller’s season at 10-6-2. “Obviously, you’re always disappointed for your kids,” coach Randy Hurley said. “I thought we played well outside of one or two lapses.” It was Moeller’s first overtime game of the season. When Milford’s Kyle Grothaus scored the game-winning goal, it was also their last. “Offensively, they’ve got some strong weapons,” Hurley said of the Eagles. “Kyle Grothaus is a very good player. He can finish, he’s skillful, he can score from about anywhere.” W Gr est an er De d O n H ce pe ill mb n s er ing! 8 th

As Hurley complimented Milford, many of the Moeller faithful were left to wonder what could’ve been had Jeffrey Fuller been healthy all season and full-go in the tournament. The script might have had a different ending. “We think so,” Hurley said. “The difficult part was, when someone’s out for the long during the year and they come back, you have to rearrange. The player that’s been

playing there has to move and it ends up affecting two or three players down the line.” Without making excuses, Hurley couldn’t brush off Fuller’s potential impact. “Just this past week he started to look normal,” Hurley said. “He still wasn’t at 100 percent. He was starting to get his rhythm and starting to get his legs. We saw what we could’ve been on the attack, which

gives us a completely different dimension.” With this season in the books, Hurley’s faced with the prospect of massive Moeller turnover. “We lose a lot,” Hurley said. “We graduate 12 seniors.” Among the losses will be Fuller, Greater Catholic League-South player of the year Chris Nartker, second-leading scorer Erik Radke, Raymond Roberts (who scored with Fuller in the Moeller finale), Ryan Elser (Fuller’s replacement most of the year) and defenders Joey Veatch and Ty Whalen. “We’ll come back,” Hurley said. “We’ve got a good nucleus of kids. Our juniors got a lot more playing experience this year than we really thought they would because of our injury situation in the first half of the season. All of the juniors were first-year varsity players. We’re going to return six juniors and two sophomores.” For those eight Crusaders, next season can’t come soon enough. “We met in the locker room and discussed some of the things they need to do to prepare for next year,” Hurley said. Hurley designed a difficult schedule for Moeller this fall based on their talent and claims it may be even tougher in 2012.

Fullbacks, such as Zoe Curry of Milford and Sarah Byrne, have helped take some of the pressure off goalie Erika Wolfer. And when the opposing offense does get a shot off, Wolfer has stood up to the test. The senior led the Scarlet with 11.5 shutouts this fall, while posting a 91 percent save percentage. “Erika has stepped up and made some good saves,” Dehring said.

Dehring said Robertson’s play has helped take defensive pressure off Bonekemper. “Last year, we only had Lana that could score and now we have another girl that can score, so it takes the pressure off Lana, and puts pressure on the other team,” Dehring said. Ursuline has also maintained a stellar defensive presence, and hasn’t allowed a goal in its last six contests.

immense pile of debris at Goshen’s gateway on 28. This eyesore, and the recent front page Enquirer article that focused Claire upon Goshen’s Corcoran Green Acres COMMUNITY PRESS (“Mobile Home GUEST COLUMNIST Parks left in Third World Squalor” 10/18/11), will undoubtedly cause potential businesses and new residents to re-evaluate making Goshen their home. It is undeniable Goshen has fallen behind the last two years. County leaders no longer considered Goshen a community on the rise. Nearly everyone I speak with believes we are headed in the wrong direction. We must do better. To earn your support, I am going door to door listening to the voters. I will complete over 75

percent of the township by election day. Many voters don’t answer their door or aren’t home. But, I’ve met hundreds of wonderful residents throughout the township and, I’ve benefited from every discussion. It is clear our residents want to see real progress for Goshen. Accordingly, I believe the voters deserve to know my plan as trustee. Briefly, I have served in government for 38 years. I accomplish my goals. I earned my masters in public administration from NKU (1999). I am currently a member of the Goshen board of education and proudly serve as poo marshal for the Goshen Horse Thief Detectives. I have been endorsed by the Fraternal Order of Police. As trustee, I promise to maintain Goshen’s rural character. And, during my first term I will: » Oppose any township government tax increase.

» Clean up the Combs dump on Ohio 28 and Green Acres. » Bring business to our town center. » Assist developing Marr Park. » Create a walking/riding trail from Stonelick to Loveland through the town center. » Return fiscal responsibility to the township. My father-in-law, Tom Corcoran returned from World War II in 1945, married Gloria, moved to Goshen and farmed here ever since. My husband grew up in Goshen. I was raised on a farm in West Chester. Now, Goshen is my home. As trustee, I will work hard, be accessible to all residents, and make difficult decisions for Goshen when necessary. I will be a trustee you can count on. With your help, Nov. 8 will be a fresh start.

Claire Corcoran is a candidate for Goshen Township trustee Nov. 8.

A nation and a township of laws There are many things I have learned from my years in business and my almost four years serving as one of your trustees. In these times of budget cuts, unemployment and other problems, some political candidates are drawn to say whatever they feel it takes to get your vote. I have restrained from doing so and from indulging in negative political activities. I will address three particular issues facing our township and my position on them in this guest column: Cleaning up Goshen, taxes and fiscal transparency. Townships are a statutory entity in the state of Ohio, which means we can only do what the Ohio Revised Code (ORC) says we can do, whereas other governments can do whatever they de-

cide as long as the ORC does not prohibit it. The ORC does not give our township unfettered jurisdiction over the Combs Jack dump or the Kuntz Acres COMMUNITY PRESS Green Mobile Home GUEST COLUMNIST Park. However, we as trustees have been in contact with and given strong encouragement to our county commissioners, board of health, state’s office and the EPA (agencies that have jurisdiction related to these problem areas of Goshen). Action is being taken on several fronts on these issues, but I cannot and will not “prom-

ise” to do something that I do not have authority to do -even if it may get me more votes. As far as taxes, again I will not promise to restrain from voting to put a tax levy on the ballot. Tax increases are not the decision of the trustees. It is the decision of the electorate. However, if I feel a situation is critical to the safety and/or security of our township, I will vote to put it on the ballot so that the people of Goshen can decide. I have done so in the past and will again in the future if I feel it is in the best interest of the people of Goshen. The third issue is one of fiscal responsibility and transparency. I have full confidence in our department heads and our Fiscal Officer, Lisa Allen. We follow the laws of the ORC related to open

meetings and requests for documents from our citizens. We have met with citizens when they have questions or don’t understand the process of accounting for activities on a government level. We are also audited by the state as required by law to be sure that what we do and how we do it is aligned with the ORC. I am proud to call myself a Goshen Township trustee and hope to continue to do so for the next four years if re-elected. The promise I will make to you is that I will use my experience, integrity and ability to keep Goshen safe and secure for our citizens. Thank you. Visit

Chamber endorses Nov. 8 issues

The Clermont Chamber of Commerce has taken positions on local and state issues that will appear on the Nov. 8 ballot. The positions were determined after interviewing levy sponsors and through discussion in the Government Affairs Council of all issues, with final action by the Chamber board of directors. “For over 40 years the Clermont Chamber has focused on safeguarding and strengthening the collective interests of the Clermont County business

community,” said Matt Van Sant, president/CEO of the chamber. “Business must not be reluctant to speak out when decisions of public policy have a positive or negative impact (on) business success.” The positions: • Endorse Clermont County Issue 13 - Clermont County senior services renewal tax levy of 1.3 mills for a period of five years; this will not increase taxes. The chamber recommends a “yes” vote because this is not an increase and Clermont seniors has

shown that caregiver assistance costs companies $33.6 billion a year and can have a negative impact on the productivity of the workforce. • Endorse State Issue 2 – SB5 Referendum. SB5 was signed March 31 with the intent of making long overdue reforms to unfair and costly government employment practices in Ohio, and give units of government the tools needed to get spending under control and make government more accountable to taxpayers. The chamber recommends

a “yes” vote because the community must provide schools the tools that need to keep the best teachers in the classroom and reward performance; and governments the tools to ensure fairness in employee contributions to benefit programs and the ability to consider job performance in pay increases. In the end this creates a flexible system able to respond to quickly changing environmental conditions that affect the ability of companies to create jobs and make capital investments.

Leadership matters in Goshen Twp.

Considering a run for Goshen trustee required several thoughtful discussions with friends and family. Leaving the school board “comfort zone” was a difficult decision. Since 2008, I’ve enjoyed serving on the Goshen board of education. And, as most of our parents know, Goshen’s entire school district has been rated “excellent” by the state of Ohio the last two years. This is a first for Goshen. I am very proud to have been a part of the team of teachers, administrators, staff, parents, students, volunteers, and board members that worked so hard to achieve that rating for our community. While contemplating the trustee race, it occurred to me that, as we expect our students to achieve excellence, shouldn’t we also expect excellence from our township elected leaders. Even if you don’t follow the township’s activities, it’s impossible to ignore the


continue the fine work he began.” R.V. “Though I had no personal dealings with him, I was aware of his presence in the Cincinnati in various ways. At one time, I worked in the Chiquita Center, for instance; and we have frequented the UDFs for years. His generosity with his wealth has made him a legend.” Bill B. “About 40 years ago, I had just finished my first quarter at UC, working towards an MBA. I was dating a young lady who would soon become my wife. Neither of us had much money and neither did our families. To make a long story short, Carl Lindner had do-

nated a lot of scholarship money to the College of Business. A college secretary encouraged me to apply and I was awarded the fulltuition scholarship. I worked a full-time job to pay for all my personal expenses and incidental costs, like books. My wife and I married while I was in school and as a result of the Lindner scholarship I graduated with no college loans. Because we had no debt, over the next three years we were able to save up a down payment on our first house, which we moved into a few months before the birth of our first child. I regret that I never did what I am going to do right now....Thank You, Carl!” T.H.

Many voters believe Ohio’s budget can be balanced by reducing labor costs, resulting in more lost jobs for Ohio’s workers. The politicians pushing for Issue 2 are government workers that will not be affected by the outcome. The only people to be affected by passing Issue 2 are blue-collar workers. Do you think Issue 2 will take away the use of city vehicles for personal use for the city’s leaders? Do you think it will take away the excessive benefits received by those same leaders? I doubt it. Issue 2 will eliminate thousands of valuable jobs while the leaders continue to reap the benefits. In response to Larry Heller’s letter last week, the only reform these communities need are the reform of wasteful spending. Eliminating needed community jobs is not reform. If you want to know why your community is going broke, go online and research the public record of salaries for local government employees. Issue 2 is written by politicians who are getting ready to lose the freebies they reap at the expense of taxpayers. Vote “no” on Issue 2 because eliminating blue-collar workers is not the answer to saving money. This “Democratice” thinking is what has the country in economic turmoil. John Brock Milford

SB5 offers flexibility

As their budgets tighten, schools have relied more heavily on levies. This has increased uncertainty for schools across the state because a levy’s passage is never guaranteed. It is especially challenging now because families are less able to support tax increases. These are trying times, but simple changes can be made. Senate Bill 5 gives schools greater flexibility over their budgets, which in the past has been unavailable because of growing union demands, including automatic pay raises, excessive paid leave and generous retirement packages. SB 5 also eliminates the “lasthired, first-fired” policy, which has cost many young and energetic teachers their jobs, simply for being less tenured. Also, because younger teachers are often paid less, when layoffs were necessary, schools have been forced to cut more teaching positions in order to cover their deficits. The previous General Assembly refused to confront these issues, electing instead to fill gaps in the education budget with onetime stimulus funds. That option is no longer available. If we do not get our fiscal house in order, schools will continue trying to pass levies onto the backs of local taxpayers who simply can no longer afford them. Danny Bubp State Representative

A grateful senior

I have had services from Clermont Senior Services since 2004 after suffering a heart attack and having extreme difficulty getting around because of the pain and weakness from other health issues. They provided Meals-onWheels, personal care, homemaking and transportation which helped me tremendously during my recovery. See LETTERS, Page A8

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Continued from Page A7

With the help of Clermont Senior Services, I was eventually able to get back to doing my own personal care and preparing my own meals; however, they continue to provide homemaking and transportation services for me, which is such a blessing as I can no longer physically complete housekeeping tasks and I no longer drive. In addition to the homemaking and transportation, Clermont Senior Services has assisted in getting me eyeglasses, completing HEAP applications and with home repair projects. I am so grateful that Clermont Senior Services was there to rescue me when I needed them. They provide so many needed services to the senior citizens of Clermont County services which help us obtain medical care and proper nutrition, and that helps us remain independent and in our own homes for as long as possible. Please vote “yes” for the Clermont Senior Services levy. A grateful senior citizen. Doris Gunter Union Township

Constable is honest

James Constable is an honest man ready to go to work for Goshen. I met James a couple months ago by chance at a meeting. We spent several minutes discussing him running for Goshen trustee. He showed such passion for Goshen and told me he truly felt he could make a difference in Goshen. Over the past several months we have stayed in touch several times a week. I have learned a lot about James and know and trust he would be an honest and attentive trustee. He pays attention to details and is fiscally responsible. He is a doer and doesn’t just deliver lip service. He will work for the best interests of the whole community, not the selected. Let’s make James Constable the next Goshen trustee.

except trying to raise our taxes by a unnecessary levy. Fortunately through the wisdom of our community this tax failed. With the present administration, we have not cut spending. Cutting budgets is not cutting spending. We all are against unnecessary spending and taxing unless it is absolutely necessary. Unnecessary spending and taxing shows poor management with personal agendas. We need a street-smart businessman like James Constable, someone that can relate to our community and get things accomplished - we do not need educated politicians who are concerned primarily with personal gains. As in our national politics we do not need this and we certainly do not need this to continue in Goshen. Choose and vote carefully or we will continue to go down the “nothing” road for our community.

Vote Pattison

I have known George Pattison for over 30 years. George is the most outstanding candidate for municipal court judge. He has a reputation that is above reproach; a background of outstanding community service; and a lifetime of commitment and dedication to his fellow citizens. His accomplishments are many; I will list a few. He is chairman of the Clermont County Metropolitan Housing Authority, is cofounder and chairman of the Clermont County Citizens Law Enforcement Association, is finance chair-

man of Trinity United Methodist Church, and is a life member of the Clermont County Humane Society. He has previously served Clermont County eight years as county prosecutor, five years as assistant county prosecutor, and has 35 years of municipal court experience. We need George Pattison as municipal court judge. Please join me in voting for George Pattison for municipal court judge. Marie Sanborn Union Township

Vote ‘no’ on Issue 2

Don’t believe everything you hear on TV. Politicians and special interest groups are blaming public employees like teachers, firefighters, nurses and police officers for the state budget mess in Ohio. The reality of Issue 2 (Senate Bill 5) is that the bill, if passed, would strip the collective bargaining rights of public service employees and effectively make it illegal for public workers to negotiate class sizes, safety equipment and staffing ratios. These things would make it difficult for educators to focus on giving kids the individual attention they need to succeed in a large classroom, as well as make it unsafe for firefighters who will not have critical safety equipment and fewer colleagues on emergency runs. The bottom line is this, taxes to operate schools and have your safety officials run with today’s technology are always going to be there. Penalizing hard (working) public employees will not fix that. If you

care about your children’s education and want to live a safe life with enough firefighters to do their jobs in a time of need, then please vote “no” on Issue 2. Chalee Stevens Milford

Demand solutions

Thankfully, State Issue 2 is headed for a crushing defeat on Nov. 8. It has been gratifying to see the way the people of Ohio have responded to Gov. Kasich’s attempt to scapegoat public sector employees for the state’s financial problems. No less a conservative Republican than Bill Cunningham of WLW 700 has come out against State Issue 2, which is nothing more than an attempt to pit one segment of the middle class against another. Says Cunningham on his video blog (Oct.17): “I urge you to vote ‘no’ on State Issue 2 … the best Americans I know are cops, firefighters and teachers. They’re reasonable and they’re good people.” Thank you, Bill, for recognizing that fairness to our middle class friends and neighbors goes beyond politics. I urge all Ohioans to join me - and Bill Cunningham to send an unmistakable message to Gov. Kasich that public workers are not the problem. Issue 2 will not create a single job. Vote “no” on Issue 2 and demand real solutions from Columbus. Fred Thomas Miami Township

Vote for Constable

All, I strongly urge you to vote for James Constable as Goshen Township trustee. The budget/levy issue last year was a debacle. Our elected officials reported a huge budget shortfall for 2010 and that a levy was needed to keep Goshen in the black. Scare tactics by our trustees claiming severe degradation of emergency services was put to the public at the trustee’s meetings up to a few short weeks before the election. Fact: There was no shortfall, discovered well ahead of time by James Constable, practicing due diligence by investigating the budget issue rather than take our officials’

word for it. Household budgets can’t afford big mistakes and neither can this township - we deserve better. Why would a levy of unlimited term be put to our township when no shortfall existed to begin with? Do not elect personnel because they are “nice people.” Although we appreciate “nice people,” competence should be the deciding factor. Pete Vezey Goshen Township

Keep Judge Zuk

As a life-long Clermont County resident and a practicing attorney, I encourage you to keep Judge Ken Zuk on the municipal court bench. I write from a unique perspective: I had the distinct honor of working side-by-side by Judge Zuk on a daily basis throughout his tenure on the common pleas bench as his staff attorney, as well as a court mediator and magistrate. In this role, I witnessed firsthand his sound decision making, his outstanding judicial temperament, and the courtesy extended to (those) who enter his courtroom. The pride he takes in his service is evident, and the quality of that service is unmatched. Judge Zuk’s commitment and common sense approach to the law has earned the respect of Clermont County’s legal community. The qualifications of judicial candidates are often overlooked on Election Day, and a candidate’s political endorsement ultimately means little to a judge’s role in applying the law to the facts of a given case. Whether Democrat, Republican or Independent, a proven, outstanding judge is simply that - a proven, outstanding judge. We have the opportunity to re-elect one on Nov. 8. Please join me in ensuring that Judge Ken Zuk remains our municipal court judge. Joshua Vineyard Cincinnati

Give a little

First, please vote “yes” on Issue 2. Don’t listen to those scary ads on TV and radio that forewarn of layoffs and shortages of teachers, firefighters and police. I’m an average citi-

Gold stars on flag are a mystery James Taylor was a fun loving guy. He enjoyed country music, especially Ernest Tubbs, and watching stock car racing at Glen Este speedway. He left Goshen High School early to work at an Evendale factory and was drafted into the U.S. Army. After completing basic training, he was shipped to Japan. James liked the Japanese people. He thought the women were pretty, but the beer was not so good. By August 1951, James was in Korea - a member of the 9th Infantry of the 2nd Division, the “Indian Heads.” The 2nd Division was a battle hardened unit, fighting in the Pusan perimeter, at Koto-ri and at Chipyongni. The “Indian Heads” was a leading element in the allies’ drive to regain land lost during the first Chinese offensive the winter of 1950-1951. By mid-September, the 2nd Division had advanced back into North Korea and had dug in at Heartbreak Ridge.

James told his family he felt really good because he had taken his first Gary bath in 42 Knepp days. He COMMUNITY PRESS asked his GUEST COLUMNIST mother to send him some “toilet stuff” because he had thrown his away: “I had too much of a load to carry up these hills.” He spent free time writing to girls he had met through the classified ads in U.S. newspapers. James was looking forward to coming home in about six months. His mother wrote to him Sept. 17, telling him about life on the home front in Goshen. While writing, she listened to Tex Ritter on the radio. She told James “love and loads of love. Mom and all.” Sadly, Jim never received the letter. He was killed that same day when an enemy artillery shell ex-

American flag draped the casket. Jim’s family discovered that this was an unique flag. On its reverse side it has one white star and forty-seven gold ones.

Apparently the unofficial practice of inserting a random number of gold stars on the reverse side of the flag was started by a French company hired by

zen, but I can figure out the opposite is reality. If cities, towns, and municipalities cannot lower their expenses by, maybe, public employees paying a small portion of their insurance and pensions, there will be no other way than to layoff workers. Second, the citizens of West Clermont just cannot afford a hike in their property taxes right now. People have lost jobs, and, if they have a job, have probably not received a raise in three or four years. Seniors on Social Security have not received a cost of living increase in three years, while their costs for food and energy have gone up. Third, these two issues are linked. If Issue 2 passes, West Clermont has the opportunity to negotiate with teachers to pay a small portion of their insurance and pension, and also take a pay freeze. The savings could be used for our schools and transportation. Everyone needs to give a little. It’s always been the private sector taxpayer. Let’s see the public workers give a little this time. Sarah Walton Union Township

Constable is best

I have lived or worked in Goshen for over 40 years. I have known Jim for over 30 years. He is a caring person. He has promised to be a full-time trustee and I know him to keep his promises. I feel he would be a great asset to the residents of Goshen. I know for a fact when he is committed to doing something he will give his all out effort. Ask him a question, you will get an honest answer. Jim, through his research of the county auditor’s records, found the trustees in 2010 were not accurately reporting their revenue. The problem of an $800,000 shortage did not exist. Do you really need this type of experience and integrity? I believe Jim has the ability to restore your faith in having an open and honest local government. Please vote Nov. 8 and I hope you support Jim Constable. Connie Wilder Fayetteville

the American Army to make flags to drape the caskets of men killed in Europe during WWII. There seems to be no evidence of the practice continuing into the Korean War. Perhaps it was a surplus WWII flag. On the flag’s border is stenciled “P.D.Q. 5 by 9.” The “5 by 9” is obviously the flag’s dimensions. But what about “P.D.Q.?” This does not seem to be the name of either a French or American flag company. A Google search of “P.D.Q.” revealed 73 possible meanings including “pretty darn quick.” The only military reference was “permanently disqualified,” which doesn’t seem appropriate.

CLERMONT CHAMBER TO HONOR PACESETTERS Rocklin volunteers, inspires others

Lisa J. Mauch

CLERMONT CO. — Miami Township resident and community volunteer Tom Rocklin is this year’s recipient of the Edward J. Parish Pacesetter Award, which is presented annually by the Clermont Chamber of Commerce. The Edward J. Parish Pacesetter 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. “It is a tremendous honor to receive the award,” said Rocklin. “It’s certainly unexpected and something I was not aspiring to.”

Rocklin said he is inspired by his faith and “the example of the other leaders in our community that are willing to set aside their personal agenda and work Rocklin for the quality of life in Clermont.” Rocklin is an active member of the First Apostolic Church of Cincinnati in Kenwood, where he serves as a deacon, volunteer treasurer, teacher, choir member and assistant webmaster. He and his wife, Karen, married in 1974. They have a son and a daughter. Other awards he’s received are the Clermont 2001 Salute to Lead-

ers Over & Over Award, the Milford Miami Township Chamber of Commerce Volunteer of the Year, the Siemens PLM Software Diversity Leadership Award, and the Clermont 20/20 Salute to Leaders William H. Over Leadership Award. “Thisissuchaneatplacetolive, and work, and to play,” said Rocklin about Clermont County. “People really seemed to be concerned about the quality of life and making it better for people having a difficult time. You see other people concerned and you become concerned. If you have an asset you can provide it’s a good thing to do.” “I couldn’t be more pleased and more proud,” said George Brown, executive director of Clermont

Senior Services. “He’s an Energizer bunny in a blue suit. His level of community service is extraordinary.” Rocklin is a senior technical project manager in the Milford officeofSiemensPLMSoftware.His expertise is in web technologies, data management applications and business management systems, which he uses to help others. “He’s the webmaster for several nonprofit groups that could never afford to have someone build and maintain a website for them,” said Brown. Those groups include SEM Haven, Homesteading & Urban Redevelopment Corporation, League of Women Voters of Clermont County and the Literacy Council of Clermont and Brown

Counties. Brown first came to know Rocklin when Rocklin was a board member for Clermont Senior Services. Rocklin also served as chair for two years. Brown describes him as a “tremendous counselor and leader. He inspired me to go from the couch to a 5k walk in 90 days. It’s just an example of his leadership and inspiration.” Other community groups he’s served are Clermont 20/20, Clermont Chamber of Commerce, Clermont Northeastern Local School District, Live Oaks Career Development Center, United Way of Greater Cincinnati, University of Cincinnati Clermont College and Workforce One Investment Board Southwest Ohio.

UC Clermont’s contributions help improve county By Kellie Geist-May

BATAVIA TWP. — When the Clermont Chamber of Commerce presents the Corportate Pacesetter Award at the annual Pacesetter Dinner, a non-profit will be on the receiving end. UC Clermont, the Clermont County branch of the University of Cincinnati, will be recognized by the chamber for the college’s contribuSojka tions to Clermont County in education, business and community support. UC Clermont Dean Gregory Sojka said it’s exciting that the college is being recognized as a corporate pacesetter, which is given to an organization that exhibits citizenship and leadership. “It’s interesting that a nonprofit, higher education institute was chosen. I think it’s an honor that reflects our 39 years of services to the community. Clermont

College is this community’s college and I think it’s viewed as an asset in developing opportunities for Clermont’s citizens, local employers and workforce,” Sojka said. In addition to the degrees and training offered at UC Clermont, the school and its organizations hold a variety of philanthropic events throughout the year. UC Clermont also leads a community arts program, offers secondary options for high school students, is home to Clermont office of the Southwest Ohio Educational Opportunities Center and provides facilities for Clermont County organizations and programs. They currently are working on a walking path that will be open to anyone. Clermont County Commissioner Bob Proud, one of UC Clermont’s “Distinguished Alumni,” said the school has been a big part of the economic development and vitality in Clermont County. “UC Clermont has been wonderful to work with. They’ve worked very close with us in terms of addressing the needs of

A group of UC Clermont students stand at the campus' main entrance. UC Clermont is being recognized as this year's Corporate Pacesetter by the Clermont Chamber of Commerce. THANKS TO DOTTIE STOVER the county and the businesses while providing residents of Clermont County and the surrounding area with quality education at an affordable price,” he said. “When we’re talking to a company about locating here and we can tell them that we have the power of UC close

to home, it makes a difference.” “They have been an excellence corporate neighbor in providing opportunities for our students and making Clermont County great. UC Clermont is the crown jewel of Clermont County,” Proud said. Working with the community is

something Sojka said the college is going to continue to focus on. “I believe we need to continue to have additional bachelors degrees and programs for students interested in Clermont College. I think we’re becoming the first choice for employers in the area, so we need to continue to change and evolve to meet those expectations,” he said. Sojka said there’s a photo at the school of the college’s founders on a hay wagon in a field that reminds him of the college’s roots and gives him hope for the future. “I think about what they envisioned when they had one building and 300 students and how the college has evolved. Now we have nearly 4,000 students, a number of buildings and UC East. We’re growing and we want to continue to grow to meet the needs of this community,” he said. “We made a promise to this community 39 years ago that we would be here and that our doors would be open. We need to make sure that promise is kept. It’s not an easy job, but there’s too much at stake to fail,” Sojka said.

Smith is a long-time community leader By John Seney


Chris Smith took over as executive director of Clermont 20/20 in May 2010, he knew the task ahead of him would not be easy. Funding for the agency had been drastically reduced. Grants from organizations such as the United Way, the Greater Cincinnati Foundation and the Duke Foundation had dried up beSmith cause these groups were concentrating their resources on more basic human needs such as food, clothing and shelter. School districts that had contracted with Clermont 20/20 for educational programs also were cutting back because of shrinking budgets. For 23 years, Clermont 20/20 had been fostering programs to improve the quality of life in Cler-

mont County in areas such as adult leadership, college readiness and hosting the annual Salute to Leaders event. But it could no longer afford to stay in business. Smith was able to engineer what is being called a “soft landing” for the organization by finding new homes with other agencies for all of Clermont 20/20’s programs. Smith’s work at Clermont 20/ 20 was one of the reasons he has been named the winner of the Martha Dorsey Pacesetter Award presented every year by the Clermont Chamber of Commerce at the annual Pacesetter dinner. The pacesetter awards are designed to honor individuals, organizations and corporations that have contributed to the economic vitality of Clermont County and have a concern for the county and its residents. “I’m very humbled and very honored,” Smith said of the award. Smith, a resident of Union Township, has held several positions involving service to the

community. He was working for Duke Realty in 1998 when he was approached by Clermont County officials to take over the job of economic development director. Smith said county officials later contracted out economic development duties with the chamber and he moved over to working with the chamber staff. In 2003, he was named by former Gov. Bob Taft to be the Southwest Ohio representative for the state’s department of development. He held that position for three and a half years. “I had the opportunity there to promote and encourage consideration of Clermont County as an attractive business platform,” Smith said. After leaving the state job, he worked for Uible Management Group, where his responsibilities included helping turn around struggling small businesses. Smith’s community involvement includes serving on the boards of Clermont Senior Services, the Clermont Philharmonic and Clermont County CIC.

If you go The Clermont Chamber of Commerce Pacesetter Awards Dinner will be at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 10, at Holiday Inn and Suites Cincinnati Eastgate, 4501 Eastgate Blvd. The awards will start around 6:30 p.m. Tickets for the dinner are available and the cost is $70 for chamber members and $85 for non-members. For more information or to register, call the chamber at 576-5000 or visit

He also is involved with the Batavia Rotary Club, the Union Township Kiwanis Club and has helped the village of New Richmond with economic development. In his spare time, Smith plays keyboard with the Blue Chip Jazz Band, which often performs at nursing homes and non-profit agency events. Smith, who came here from

the St. Louis area, called Clermont County “a warm, welcoming community.” “I’m now committed in every aspect to this community,” he said. Since the shutdown of Clermont 20/20, he is looking at other employment opportunities. “I would like to continue to work in the community,” he said. Ken Geis, Union Township administrator, said Smith “has been involved in Clermont County economic development on the private side and public side for a long time.” He also praised Smith for his volunteer efforts for community and civic projects. “He’s done so many things for both Clermont County and Union Township,” Geis said. “This award is long overdue.” Matt Van Sant, president/CEO of the Clermont Chamber of Commerce, said Smith’s “role as the governor’s economic development representative was critical during his tenure.” “He was a tremendous asset to the county,” Van Sant said.

Rita likes this cheesecake Recently, my sisters and some of their kids came to my home for lunch. My dear aunt Margaret and her son, Frank, also came. We made Lebanese food: tabouleh, fried kibbeh and green beans with cinnamon and onion. As I set the table with the antique china I inherited from my mom, along with mismatched silverware and glasses, I was reminded of the philosophy I grew up with: it’s not just about the food, or the serveware on the table, but about who’s at the table, sharing the meal. As we segue into the crazy busy holiday season, try and remember that bit of advice. And to help you get a good start, here are two of my favorite holiday recipes, and both are do-ahead!

Julia Stegmaier’s sweet potato pear soup I met Julia at a presentation I did for Pleasant Ridge garden club. My topic was root veggies and Julia made this yummy soup for the luncheon. It’s her version of one her daughter makes for a vegan meal. Julia made hers with butter and cream. (To make it vegan, substitute vegan margarine for the butter and coconut milk for the cream). It was light and delicious. 1 tablespoon butter 1 small onion, chopped ¼ cup chopped carrot ¼ cup chopped celery 3 medium-sized sweet potatoes, peeled and diced 2 pears, peeled and diced ¼ teaspoon dried thyme

1 teaspoon paprika 5 cups vegetable broth (can use chicken broth) 1 ⁄3 cup Rita whipping Heikenfeld cream RITA’S KITCHEN 2 teaspoons maple syrup, or to taste 2 teaspoons lime juice, or to taste Salt and pepper to taste

Melt butter over medium heat. Add onion, carrot and celery and sauté for 1 minute. Add sweet potatoes, pears and thyme and sauté for about 2 minutes. Add paprika and veggie broth. Bring to boil and simmer 15 minutes or until sweet potatoes are soft. Puree until smooth. Return to pot. Add cream, maple syrup and lime juice. Simmer 5 minutes. If soup is too thick, add a little broth. Season to taste, adding more syrup or lime juice as needed. Drizzle with maple syrup if preferred. Can be made up to 2 days ahead.

en. Laszlo and chef sister, Monica Lippmeier, are particular about fresh, local, seasonal foods and their menu reflects that. What I enjoy about this duo is their commitment to their heritage, sharing what they love. Check out their website at or give them a call at 513-561-6776 or 6786. Filling: 2 pounds of cream cheese, room temperature 1 cup of granulated sugar 1 cup light brown sugar 1½ cups solid pack pumpkin 2 teaspoons cinnamon ½ teaspoon ground cloves 1 teaspoon ground ginger 1 teaspoon nutmeg 2 teaspoons vanilla extract 5 large eggs 1 tablespoon cornstarch 2 tablespoons sour cream

Iron Skillet Restaurant’s Pumpkin Cheesecake The Iron Skillet Restaurant in Newtown, Ohio, is a haven for authentic Hungarian and German food. But that’s not all. Chef/owner Laszlo Molnar was a guest on my Union Township cable show and he made, among other yummy foods, the best pumpkin cheesecake I’ve ever eat-

Beat cream cheese in mixer on medium speed until very light, fluffy and smooth. Add sugars and continue mixing on medium speed. Add pumpkin, spices and vanilla and blend well. Add eggs, one at a time, until each is incorporated. Add cornstarch and sour cream and blend to mix well. Beat for 3 minutes on medium speed, and then pour into prepared crust. Beat for 3 minutes. Pour into prepared crust in a springform pan. Crust: Laszlo’s recipe called for a couple tablespoons of butter, but I found I needed more. Add as you go until you get a mixture that sticks together and is easy to pat down into the pan. 2 cups graham cracker

Chef Laszlo Molnar of The Iron Skillet Restaurant shares his recipe for pumpkin cheesecake.

crumbs 2 tablespoons brown sugar 1 teaspoon cinnamon ¼ teaspoon ground cloves ½ teaspoon each, nutmeg and ground ginger Up to 1 stick butter, melted

Mix dry ingredients in bottom of spring form pan, add butter and mix well. Press into bottom of pan till compact, then bake for 4 minutes at 300 degrees. Remove from oven, pour in filling, wrap pan in foil (this will prevent water leaking into it during baking) and put filled pan in water bath (roasting pan with hot water going up about ¼ way. Bake at 300 degrees for 1½ hours or until firm. Top with whipped cream. Caramel sauce is optional. Rita Nader Heikenfeld is an herbalist, educator and author.

During these tough economic times many people are looking for used rather than new cars. A large number of people turn to the Internet looking for deals. But, as with many offers on the Internet, you have to be careful of scams. Deanna Fisher, of Batavia, learned about one such scam while looking for a used car for her daughter. She found what looked like a great deal advertised on Craigslist. “We started looking on Craigslist and found a couple of different ones, but one that really got our attention was a 2001 Ford Focus for $2,267,” she said. That vehicle had only 94,000 miles on it, so she emailed the seller. “I asked if he still had the car, said please call us, and put my husband’s phone number on it. No phone call but I got an email reply,” Fisher said. The seller sent her lots of pictures of the vehicle, both inside and outside. He said he still has the car and wanted to sell it to her. Fisher says he wrote her, “If you want it we can go ahead and ship it to you because

money via Western Union and advises to only deal locally. Fisher says a close look at the emails she’s received from the seller also made her suspicious. “It really just looks like form letters, my name is not on any of those invoices. He doesn’t address me by name, its just ‘Hey, Hey, Hey.’” Fisher’s co-workers also concluded this is a scam. One of them emailed the seller pretending he was interested in buying that same car. He claimed he would be in Boston over the weekend and said he’d like to see it. He got no reply. Bottom line, always deal locally when buying something over the Internet. That way you can inspect the item rather than buying it sight-unseen. And remember, never wire money via Western Union or Money Gram to someone you don’t know because it’s impossible to get back the money. Howard Ain answers complaints on WKRC-TV Local 12.

I’m in the military. I’m getting ready to go to Iraq and I needed to get rid of this car. It’s in a wareHoward house in Ain Boston.” HEY HOWARD! The seller wrote he will ship the vehicle to her for free so she can inspect and approve of the deal. However, she has to pay for it first. Fisher says he wrote, “Send me the money via Western Union and we have an eBay account set up. You should send it to me through my eBay agent.” By this time Fisher says she was very suspicious of the deal. She decided to check the address of this so-called eBay agent and learned it is a non-existent building across from a bus stop in Salt Lake City, Utah. “It just totally sounded like a big scam to everybody,” Fisher said. The Craigslist website is well aware of scams like this and has a warning at the top of each page. It says beware of sending any

Make sure to vote Nov. 8

Howdy folks, Don't forget to go vote on Nov. 8. It is important that all of us vote. Look over the ballots and issues and vote. Other countries would love to have this opportunity. On Nov. 5, there will be a craft show at the Rambler Center in Russelville, 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. There will be lots of interesting items to see and buy. Ruth Ann and I will be there with our Ring Master bowl machine and bird feeders. Some you may have never seen before so mark your calendar. The ladies will be serving breakfast and lunch, so you can eat pretty good. This craft show is one of the finest. Also on Nov. 5, there will be a waffle breakfast at the Riverside Coffee Mill in Batavia. This will benefit the Monroe Grange. This will be from 9 a.m. till noon. The waffles are sure good. You will enjoy a big plate full. The Kinners that own the Coffee Shop sure know how to make good waffles. Ruth Ann and I, of course, won't get to be there but we hope you will support the Monroe Grange. They voted to adopt a senior again this year for Christmas. Our cat Summer each morning needs to get on Ruth Ann’s lap for some attention. After he is on her lap for a few minutes, I put his feed in his bowl and call him, “It’s breakfast time,”

and here he comes to eat. He is our only cat and he is sure taking the time to get plenty George of loving. Rooks He is a big feller and OLE FISHERMAN he shares his cat food with the birds. They will fly down and get a piece of cat food, he doesn't even bother them. Last Monday, Ruth Ann and I used the power washer to clean our house. It took us over 3.5 hours and what a job. The house sure looks good and clean. The gutters were also cleaned. This work seems to be getting a lot harder each time we do it. Ruth Ann thinks it is because we are getting older, but I don't think that is the reason. I was talking to Mike at the Boars Head Bait Shop. This past weekend was the fish-off for the crappie tournaments held this year. It was a success. The winner for the two-day fish-off was: First place, 12 pounds; second place, 11.5 pounds; third place, 11.25 pounds. One of their tournament fishermen died earlier this year so they had a moment of silence for him. There also was a moment of silence for Mike’s mother and some sick folks that are connected with the crappie

tournament. There was a big picnic for all the folks, and everyone sure ate good. This tournament run by the Boars Head Bait Shop is a wonderful event and the folks sure enjoy all the time spent together. There is lots of competition between each contestant. Last Thursday, Ruth Ann and I went to Columbus for the Grange Convention at the Columbus Airport Marriott Hotel. The accommodations were wonderful. There were Grangers from all parts of Ohio there. The convention starts on Thursday and ends on Sunday. It used to start on Friday and go to Tuesday of the next week. Now the convention has been shortened and this is good. The Granges over the state will have delegates represent their county. The ladies for Clermont were Linda and Bonnie. These two ladies sure represent Clermont County Grange in a very professional way. The delegates vote on the resolutions sent in to the Grange office at Fredrickstown. There were extremely good ones this year. On Friday evening, the Grange Banquet was held. Then on Saturday morning the Junior Breakfast. This is to humor the juniors that belong to the Junior Granges over the state. Ruth Ann took 18 entries from the Monroe Junior Grange. The
