Clermont Northeastern Local School District has a new state-ofthe-art Web site thanks to the help of a global company that began operations in Miami Township less than two years ago. Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), part of a conglomerate based in India, moved into the former James River Corp. building near U.S. 50 in March 2008. The firm invited Gov. Ted Strickland, Clermont County officials and members of the community to its offices Nov. 5 to announce it had passed the 300-employee mark and was still growing. TCS handles software development for large corporations and most of its employees are college graduates with training in computers and engineering. Surya Kant, president of North American operations for TCS, said the firm also is dedicated to developing the next generation of technology workers by working with local school districts. “We are very proud of that,” he said. Part of the outreach included helping Clermont Northeastern overhaul its Web site at no cost to the school district. Tata is in the CNE district. Cindy Huxel, board of education president for CNE, said she has been urging the district to upgrade its Web site for several years and was pleased with the results. Superintendent Neil Leist said he has received nothing but positive feedback from members of the community about the Web site. Mike Woods, a project manager at TCS who helped develop the CNE site, said the upgraded site is now

more accessible and easier to use for teachers, administrators and students. “It’s a complete learning portal,” he said. Tata began working on the CNE Web site in August and donated 4,000 man hours to designing and building it. During his visit, Gov. Strickland praised Tata as being “good corporate citizens.” He said the new jobs being added by Tata were “vital to a strong economic recovery for Ohio.” Sarajane MacKenzie, a vice president and head of human resources for TCS, said more jobs should be added in the future. “This is just the beginning as far as we’re concerned,” she said.

Sewer work continues on Ohio 28 By Mary Dannemiller

Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland, center, meets with executives of Tata Consultancy Services Nov. 5 at the firm’s Miami Township offices.

Getting caught in traffic stinks, especially when a county sewer line project has clogged up the works. The Clermont County Water Resources Department is installing about 37,000 feet of sewer along Ohio 28, Goshen Road, Stumpy Lane, Cozzadale Road, Ohio 132, Shiloh Road and Angel Wood Road in Goshen. The Clermont County commissioners recently approved increased funding and construction time for the project, which began in August of last year and has a $6.4 million

price tag. “This year has been very wet so part of (the extension) is because of the weather and part of it is because the scope of the project changed,” said Chris Rowland, project manager for the Clermont County Water Resources Department. “We needed to add some additional length and we’ve run into some rock during the process of installation.” The new public sewer lines will replace residents’ septic tanks, which can be hard to maintain and hazardous if sewage leaks onto the homeowner’s property, Rowland said. “They have not had a public

sewer in that area,” he said. “There could be issues with a septic system if they’re not maintained, which is really the main reason why you would have a public sewer. If you have an individual who doesn’t maintain their tank, there is the potential of polluting property.” Goshen Township Service Director Lou Clemons said roads have not been closed as a result of the project and he has not received complaints about the construction. “The roads are all open right now and when they’re finished, the roads are going to be put back the way they were when the county got here,” he said.

Goshen residents who live on the streets where the sewer line is being installed will have to connect the system to their home and pay a fee if they choose to switch from a septic tank, Rowland said. “It’s up to the homeowner to connect to the sewer once we notify them the sewers have passed inspection and are ready to connect,” he said. “They’ll then have to apply for a permit and pay any fees associated with that.” Rowland said the majority of the work should be completed in November.

Goshen to ‘Light Up’ township Nov. 19 By Mary Dannemiller

Goshen Township will be bright with holiday cheer Saturday, Nov. 21, during the Goshen Chamber of Commerce’s annual Light Up Goshen Parade. The parade will line up at 3 p.m. at Marr/Cook Elementary School on Goshen Road and will depart from the school at 4:30 p.m. toward Ohio 28. It will then turn left on Ohio 28, take a right on Dick Flynn Blvd. and end in front of the LCNB Goshen branch. “We’re starting the parade a half hour later this year so that when

the time comes to light the Charlie Brown Christmas tree at the end of the parade, it will be darker out so it will actually light up,” said chamber member Sue Bowman. Bowman said the old fashioned Christmas-themed parade will feature antique tractors, decorated floats and horses with carriages. “It’s unique in the sense that Goshen is the only parade in Cincinnati with antique tractors and tractors of all kinds,” she said. Area youth groups also are invited to decorate a float and enter it in the parade for a cash prize. “We’re still looking for people to join the parade and youth groups

in the area can compete for the best floats,” Bowman said. “First place will win $500, second will win $200 and third place gets $100 for the best youth floats. We want to encourage the youth groups in the Goshen area to participate.” Before the parade begins, the Goshen Lions Club will host its annual Holly Fair from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the same elementary school where the parade starts. “We should have about 70 or more tables of arts and crafts and homemade jewelry and food items,” said club member Joe Spaulding. “The proceeds will go to the Lions Club to help us buy eye-

glasses and provide eye exams to adults and children in the Goshen area.” Free food donated by Kroger, Bowman Financial and LCNB will be available after the parade, Bowman said. “We’re going to have some hot dogs, chili, hot chocolate and other things like that for everyone,” she said. “It’s all just a great event from the Lions Club and the chamber for people to come out and see what’s going on in Goshen and what’s available in Goshen.” For more information on the Holly Fair, visit

Autenrieb, Hausermann hope to bring change to Goshen Twp. By Mary Dannemiller

After months of heated campaigning, Goshen Township’s much debated trustee election is over. Ray Autenrieb and Bob Hausermann were elected Goshen Township trustees Tuesday, Nov. 3, defeating incumbent T.J. Corcoran and replacing Mike Keeley, who did not seek re-election. Autenrieb won with a total of 1,600 votes (23 percent) and Hausermann took 1,951 votes (28 percent.) Corcoran came in



third with 1,380 votes (20 percent.) “I’m feeling very excited and very honored to know the people of Goshen have enough faith in me to have elected me,” Autenrieb said. “I just feel fantastic and very humbled by the people

who voted for me.” Though the last several trustee meetings have been crowded, Autenrieb said he hopes people to continue to attend after he and Hausermann take office in January. “I really hope people will continue to come to the meetings because now they’ll be able to find out more information about what’s going on and they’ll be able to express their feelings and make recommendations without being cut off,” he said. “It’s 100 percent important for people to be listened to and for them

to have their say in the community.” Cleaning up Goshen and keeping a close eye on spending are the issues Autenrieb said he would like to tackle first. “I want to look at what has happened over the past year and see where we stand as far as personnel and the budget go,” he said. “Since the township recently purchased some blighted properties, I want to get active with the CIC and the zoning department to help do all we can to clean up Goshen.” Autenrieb thanked his wide reaching support network who talked with voters and plastered neon yellow Autenrieb signs around Goshen Township. “Without my committee I never could have reached all the territory I did,” he said. “Right now I just feel great that I can service my community the way I want to for the residents and their benefit.”

Cleaning up Goshen and keeping a close eye on spending are the issues Autenrieb said he would like to tackle first. Hausermann said he was excited about the win and the chance to serve the residents of Goshen Township. “I’m just elated,” he said. “It’s wonderful that the people of Goshen really came out and spoke today. I felt confident about the campaign, but I’m so thankful to the people who came out to vote. I will do the best job God will allow me to do for the people of Goshen Township.” Many residents have expressed anger and frustration at recent trustee meetings and Hausermann said he would work to help the township heal. “The No. 1 issue right now is to bring the township back together and heal any division that’s been created,” he said. “It was evi-

dent that people were upset, but the numbers at the poll prove that people want Goshen Township to just move forward. We need to work together towards the future of the township.” Hausermann, who describes himself as a fiscal conservative, said he had attended recent budget hearings and would pay close attention to the township’s expenses and revenue. “I intend to sit down with the fiscal officer and go over exactly where we are right now and what kind of shape the township is in,” he said. “A major concern of mine is keeping track of the checks.” The results of the election will be certified by the Clermont County Board of Elections at a later date.

CNE honors business partners By John Seney

Clermont Northeastern Local School District is nurturing mutually beneficial partnerships with community business leaders. The school district has benefited in the form of donated used furniture and computers. Businesses have benefited from the availability of graduates trained to enter the work force. The district honored its partnerships in the business community with its third annual Business Partners dinner Oct. 27. Larry Rigsby of Arch Materials in Jackson Town-

ship said he has worked on projects all over the country and he was very pleased with the quality of the work force in Clermont County, including Clermont Northeastern graduates. Superintendent Neil Leist told the business leaders that the partnerships are important because they help attract businesses to the area and keep graduates working in the community. Leist said the district wants to gather a group of 10 to 12 business leaders for a business advisory committee. The group would meet four times a year with the goal of enhancing the educational experience at CNE through

business partnerships. One of the benefits of the partnerships would be an internship program that would allow high school students to learn job skills and earn school credit. “It’s important we get our students at CNE a foot in the door,” Leist said. CNE High School Principal Matt Earley told the business leaders the internship program was a way to train students who could eventually work for them. At the dinner, Tata Consultancy Services in Miami Township was presented the Distinguished Business Partners Award. Tata helped the district develop a new Web site, helped with the technology program and ran a summer technology camp for CNE students. “We couldn’t be more happy with Tata in the district,” Leist said. Amar Naga, director of operations at Tata’s Miami Township office, said fewer young people are going into technology careers. He sees the school partnership as a way to develop future employees.

Fourth-grade students at St. Louis help tie yellow ribbons on pairs of socks to signify their support for the troops. This marks the final collection week of Operation Sock Drop where students send socks and foot powder for front-line combat troops in Afghanistan. Donated goods will be dropped to troops on Veteran’s Day.

Operation: Sock Drop

Operation: Sock Drop, co-sponsored by St. Louis School and the Nick Erdy Foundation, focuses on supporting troops on the forward edge of the battle area in Afghanistan. So far, more than 350 pairs of new socks have been collected to forward to the command headquarters to make available to troops in need of replacement socks due to the heavy wear-and-tear that occurs in high tempo operations.

Braden Bishop tied the contest at 2-all by converting a penalty kick at the 80:16 mark, setting the stage for Grothaus’ heroics. Grothaus netted the winning score by finishing off a shot that was set up by passes from Bishop and Paul Andrews. Grothaus sent the shot past Missouri S&T goalie Pat McNamee, and NKU defeated the Miners by a one-goal margin for the second straight year in the opening round of the GLVC Tournament.

Disappointing end to Goshen’s season By Adam Turer

The Goshen Warriors season ended Friday, Nov. 6, as the top-seeded team was upset at home by Springfield Shawnee in the first round of the Division III state playoffs. The Warriors fell behind early and could not come back against the Braves, losing 28-7. The game could not have started much worse for the Warriors. After returning the opening kickoff near midfield to set up their first drive, the Warriors fumbled the handoff on their first play from scrimmage. Shawnee’s Eric DeWitt scooped up the loose ball and took it back 49 yards for a touchdown. Goshen then fumbled on the ensuing kickoff return, giving Shawnee great field position and setting up another score. Two minutes into the game, the Warriors were in a 14-0 hole “They’re a good ball team,” said Goshen head coach Nick Inabnitt of Shawnee. “We had to come out and play our best game in order to win and we certainly didn’t do that.”

Goshen’s David Prewitt runs over several defenders to pick up a first down for the Warriors. The Warriors threw two interceptions later in the game, bringing their turnover total to four. The Warriors had problems turning the ball over in their first

Moeller stunned

The Moeller football team was stunned in the first round of the playoffs in a 45-10 loss to No. 7 Middletown. The Crusaders, who were No. 2 in the region, lost their second straight game after winning the first nine of the season. Moeller had difficulty containing Middletown quarterback Caleb Watkins and the Crusaders offense had trouble moving the football. Middletown had 430 yards of offense and Moeller gained only 175, with much of it coming late in the game. Moeller fell down 12-3 at halftime, with the defense forcing three turnovers in the first half. Moeller’s offensive woes continued in the second half, and the Crusaders defensive difficulties increased. Moeller finished the season at 9-2.



Goshen’s T.J. Settles carries for a big gain for the Warriors against Springfield Shawnee.

few games of the regular season. As the offense cut down on its turnovers, the Warriors increased their win total. The early-season bugaboos came back to bite the Warriors again in the playoff game. “Too many turnovers on offense and too many missed tackles on defense,” said Inabnitt. “We just didn’t execute.” The missed tackles on defense led to two long Shawnee touchdown runs by Steven Sarven. His 42yard score capped a 21-0 first quarter for the Braves. Sarven’s 58-yard run in the third quarter increased the lead to 28-0. Despite the initial shock of the early 14-0 hole, the Warriors kept battling. Goshen had a chance to cut into the deficit before halftime, but Sarven intercepted an Alex Owens pass in the endzone to end the Warriors drive. “(The two scores) put us behind, but it didn’t affect how we played,” said Inabnitt. “We still came out and played hard. Our kids didn’t give up and they kept working hard.” The Warriors knew that Sarven was a threat to score when he touched the ball on offense. Goshen did not expect to be shut down by the Braves defense.



Goshen quarterback Jamie Ashcraft scrambles for yardage against Springfield Shawnee in the first round of the playoffs. The Goshen offense, led by a strong running game, had averaged around 300 yards of offense per game during their eight-game winning streak. The Braves held the Warriors to just 188 yards of offense. The Warriors lone score came on a 16yard pass from Owens to Jamie Ashcraft with five minutes left in the game. The Warriors lined up for an onside kick, which was unsuccessful.

It was a disappointing end to an otherwise impressive season. The Warriors bounced back from two losses to start the season and reeled off eight straight wins, earning a Southern Buckeye Conference championship and the top regional seed in the playoffs. “We got some things we can build on for next year,” said Inabnitt. “We had a good season, but it ended earlier than we hoped.”

McNick runner’s work ethic leads to state By Mark Chalifoux

McNicholas senior Matt Johnson qualified for the state cross country meet as an individual, the program’s first individual to qualify since 2002. “It makes me feel really good,” Johnson said of his accomplishment. “It makes putting in all the extra effort and getting up to run on Sunday mornings in the offseason worth it.” McNick cross country head coach Dan Rosenbaum said Johnson’s success was a credit to his work ethic, both in sports and in the classroom. “He’s one of our top students and in his running, after his freshman year he made a decision he was going to work as hard as he could and he’s improved every year,” he said. “That hard determination and work ethic, those are the keys to his success.” Matt Johnson finished in the Division II boys cross country meet with a

time of 17:24.23, good for No. 58 in the event. Johnson said balancing the workload from athletics can be frustrating at times but that it also helps him focus. “Some people say when you have an extracurricular you do better in school. I like the stress, it tells my brain to kick it up a notch,” he said. Because Johnson has had such success in cross country and in the classroom, Rosenbaum said he’s a good role model for younger kids in the program. “I’ve pointed that out to the other kids all year. We have a number of kids who are running times similar to his in his freshman year. Now they have to make the decision to work as hard as he did and it can be a possibility for them as well someday,” Rosenbaum said. Johnson has been involved in the sport for five years and said he wants to continue his cross country career in

college. Johnson said he was considering attending Ohio Northern University. “I really like their pharmacy program and I love their facilities,” he said. “They are only Division III in cross country so the training wouldn’t be as rigorous and I think I would enjoy it more and standout more.” Johnson said his favorite thing about running at McNick is the team atmosphere and that one of the biggest influences on his career is former assistant coach Bill Valenzano, now at Walnut Hills. “He runs every day and gave me some great advice in cross country and in track and motivated me to be the best I could be,” Johnson said. Rosenbaum said his top attribute is his attitude. “He does not quit,” he said. “Even after falling early in the regional race, he didn’t panic, he didn’t spring to the front, he remained determined and worked his way back into the top 16.”

The Mount Notre Dame soccer team – which includes girls from Milford/Miami Township area – was beaten by a team it didn’t even play. Before taking the field for the Division I Sectional Final against Anderson Oct. 26, the Cougars watched league rival St. Ursula – which is vying for its third straight state title and boasts possibly the best college prospect in America in Elizabeth Burchenal – survive a 1-0 spellbinder in overtime against Oak Hills. “Our girls watched SUA and saw what they went through, and we became a very mentally unstable team,” MND head coach Doug Conway said. “They were a nervous wreck watching that game and it carried over onto the field.” MND – fresh off a 2-1 victory over previously unbeaten Lakota West – lost 3-0 to Anderson. The three goals were tied for the most surrendered by MND in a game this season. “They had a great season and made a great run,” Conway said of his team. “One bad game doesn’t mean you had a bad season.” But for MND’s eight seniors, all of whom played varsity for at least three years, the loss was difficult to bear. “It was pretty emotional for them,” Conway said. “This group has been

together a long time.” That group includes defenders Chelsea Murphy, Kelsey Gault and Fallon Wujek; midfielders Samantha Gaier, Maggie Speed and Lacie Oliver; and forwards Nora Lavelle and Kiley Powell. “Chelsea has come a long way,” Conway said. “She had as hard a year as you can have last year.

Keep an eye on trustees

The campaigning is over; all the votes are in and counted. I’d like to thank all those who worked so hard for me and for all the voters who supported my candidacy. I want to congratulate Harold Grosnickle and Don Wilson for running a successful campaign. I offer them my support and best wishes and I encourage each resident of Wayne Township to come together and support our leadership.

I challenge both Harold and D on to remember their campaign promises to represent all the people of Wayne Township with good fiscal policy and conservative views. I encourage the voting public to keep a watchful eye on our elected officials and remind them, they work for us and need to be open to our views and represent us wisely.

en the deer away. • Brake firmly when you notice a deer in or near your path, but stay in your lane. Many serious crashes occur when drivers swerve to avoid a deer and hit another vehicle or lose control of their cars. • Always wear your seat belt. Most people injured in car/deer crashes were not wearing their seat belt. • Do not rely on devices such as deer whistles, deer fences and reflectors to deter deer. These devices have not been proven to reduce deer-vehicle collisions. If your vehicle strikes a deer, do not touch the animal. A frightened and wounded deer can hurt you or further injure itself. The best procedure is to get your car off the road, if possible, and call the police. Absolutely stay out of the roadway. Rick Combs is the Clermont County Chief Deputy Sheriff.

Early childhood investment wise strategy At this very moment, legislators in Columbus are making difficult choices about what programs will receive the limited dollars available in the state budget. If there ever were a time when we have needed wise leadership, it is now. We must encourage legislators to support programs that are proven to work and save public tax dollars, and we must call upon social services to deliver programs that are accountable. One of those programs is Help Me Grow and Every Child Succeeds is one of many organizations that helps to implement this program in southwest Ohio. Help Me Grow is a home visitation program that provides support for at-risk, first-time mothers. Home visitation programs like Every Child Succeeds deliver quantifiable outcomes for mothers, babies and communities to help children develop prenatally through the first years of life. This early investment helps avoid the need for costly services for these children in the future, helps mothers find and keep their jobs, and helps them get the child-care they need so they don’t lose their jobs. Unfortunately, funding for Help Me Grow is under attack in Columbus and that puts children and families in Ohio at risk. During the last 10 years, Every Child Succeeds has made nearly 300,000 visits and helped more than 15,500 families in southwestern Ohio. ECS data proves

this program works and saves lives. In southwest Ohio, babies born to ECS mothers have a decreased infant mortality rate. • ECS – 4.7 deaths per 1,000 live births. • Cincinnati – 17 deaths per 1,000 live births. • Ohio – 7.9 deaths per 1,000

live births. Additional positive outcomes include: • 91 percent of children develop age-expected language skills. • 94 percent of children have a regular pediatrician. • 65 percent of mothers are in school or employed. • 92 percent of children have a safe home environment. • Decreased substance abuse, dependence on public assistance, juvenile delinquency, child abuse is seen. • Improved school readiness, birth outcomes and child development is created. ECS serves the highest risk Ohioans. They are fragilely connected to the workforce. They are low-income. Many are either victims of violence or have witnessed violence. One-half are clinically depressed.




During the last 10 years, Every Child Succeeds has made nearly 300,000 visits and helped more than 15,500 families in southwestern Ohio. If we don’t have early intervention programs like HMG, there will be negative short- and longterm repercussions. Infant mortality will increase, children will not be ready for school and dependence on more expensive intervention services and programs (like public assistance) will increase in the short term and be compounded over the long term. Through our rigorous data analysis, this is what we know will occur. I have enough faith in our country to believe that recovery will begin soon, and it will happen because elected officials in Columbus will make the right decisions on behalf of Ohio citizens. Investing in early childhood development is the most efficient economic development strategy available. An improved system for Ohio’s children – a system that is evidence-based, effective and targeted to those most at risk is critical to moving our state forward. Judy Van Ginkel is president of Every Child Succeeds.

Last week’s question

Do you plan to attend a Veterans Day event in your community? What does the day mean to you? “My father was born on Nov. 11, 1906, so Veterans Day has a special meaning for me. Since I work for the federal government, we are given the day off as a national holiday and although I never had the opportunity to serve in a branch of our military I think it’s important for all of us as Americans to recognize and give thanks for the countless sacrifices made by our men and women in uniform. They are all true heroes, giving of themselves to protect the freedoms many of us often take for granted.” M.M. “In all honesty, I had not thought about attending a Veteran’s Day event until this week’s chatroom question showed up. Although I am a veteran, I did not see combat, and I was lucky to have done my tour of duty in the Navy during a relatively peaceful time in our country’s history (1954-1958). “People have a tendency to take the good things in life for granted, and I am also guilty of that from time to time, and I regret it. This note from the Community Press has made me decide to plan to attend one of the events in the community, to show my appreciation for the awesome sacrifices made by so many in our Armed Forces, especially those who courageously gave their very lives in defense of our country and our freedom. Thank you American veterans!” B.B. “I served in the active army from April 1965 until November 1969 and in the reserves until 1989. I was in Vietnam from December 1967 until November 1968 and “won” a Purple Heart and a Bronze Star. “I am proud of my service but I have never seen fit to attend a Veterans Day event, except when I was in the reserves and we drove trucks in parades. “I am 65 years old and hope the day never comes where the most exciting and fulfilling thing I can celebrate was learning to kill my fellow man in a foreign land. “For me, Veterans Day is a day when a lot of old coots with nothing better to do try to regain the glory of their youth. “I will be backpacking in the Smokies trying to find mine.” F.S.D. “Although I have no current plans to attend an event, to me it is recognition of those who risked their lives and those who gave their lives for our freedoms.” B.N. “Delhi is dedicating their Veteran’s Memorial on Sunday, Nov. 8, at 1 p.m. My dad, passed away five years ago and he was a veter-

Our entire family will be at the event to remember him and all the men and women who have died that faithfully served and protected our country.” J.A.B. “Yes I will attend a veterans memorial service. The day is very special to me because my father who served in France during World War I died on Nov. 11.” L.S. “Yes, we will be attending Veterans Day events in the community. My daughter will be performing in the choir in the celebration taking place at C.O. Harrison. She will also have the privilege of serving breakfast to the veterans participating in the event and their families. She is so proud to be taking part in the day’s festivities. It’s a great way to say thank you to all that these wonderful people have done and sacrificed for us.” C.F. “I don’t attend an event but I always say a prayer thanking those who have served (and are serving) for my freedom.” C.A.S. “Definitely, we will attend! Haven’t missed one since H.B. Deatherage’s dream came true at the city of Florence monument site. Before that, we always found places to go to show our loyalty to all veterans. Hope many, many patriotic citizens will come join us this year.” W.R. “Yes, I will attend one in Morehead, Burlington and Florence. It is a special day for all Americans to show their appreciation and respect for those who have given their time and energy and, in some cases, risked their life to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States of America.” G.G. “I will stop by the beautiful new Veterans Monument located at Veterans Park on Harrison Avenue. It was featured in a recent Northwest Press article. It makes me sad that a similar kind of tribute also could have been located at the Northgate Mall (corner of Springdale and Colerain). Thankfully the township trustee who dropped the ball on Northgate Mall area did not run for reelection. He is forgotten and gone. Go figure!” T.D.T.

Watch out for deer this time of year

As the colder weather arrives so will the unfortunate likelihood of increased accidents involving deer. According to records of the Ohio Department of Public Safety, our state had 24,590 crashes involving deer during 2008. As a result of those crashes, six people were killed and 979 people were injured. In Clermont County alone there were 473 collisions between vehicles and deer. The greatest number of accidents occur during mating season (the rut) which is October, November and December. It is especially important during this time of year to be aware of the potential for a crash. The Insurance Information Institute recommends the following tips to avoid a vehicle-deer collision: • Be especially attentive from sunset to midnight and during the hours shortly before and after sunrise. These are the highest risk times for deer-vehicle collisions.

Mulberry Golf Club Superintendent Rob Parker and owner Tom Haines.

Mulberry Golf Club offers options By Mary Dannemiller

The next time you’re driving down WolfpenPleasant Hill Road, slow down a bit and you’ll come across something you wouldn’t expect to find off a busy Miami Township road: A golf course. Mulberry Golf Course is a recently opened three-hole course which is tucked away between various businesses at 5163 WolfpenPleasant Hill Road. Tom Haines opened the course earlier this month with young and beginning golfers in mind. “Mulberry Golf Club’s three hole concept was developed from USGA guidelines with special emphasis in offering access to the game of golf for beginners, seniors and youth golfers aged 4 years old to 12 years old,” Haines said. “A foursome at Mulberry Golf Club can play nine holes of golf in one hour and 30 minutes.” The course’s clubhouse currently is under construction, but will soon be available for birthday parties and

corporate meetings. “It’s a great place for birthday parties,” said Ron Parker, course superintendent. “If a child has a summer or spring birthday, they can come out to the facility for a couple of hours and play golf and then have food and cake in the clubhouse.” Parker also said the course was built to be environmentally friendly. “We’ve used organic materials and even have a hand powered lawn mower with no gas or emissions,” he said. “We’re trying to be as environmentally friendly as possible.” The course is open daily from 8 a.m. until dark. Golfers are encouraged to call 831-3348 for tee times. Nine holes cost $10 for adults and $5 for children. Please contact Mulberry Golf Club for 2010 greens fees. Visit for more information. “Golf is great outdoor recreation that can be played for life,” Haines said. “Players participate from 4 years of age to 90 years of age.”

Hear what some of your friends think of you innate common sense. Prudence is the intellectual ability to choose the right means toward a worthy end. Father Lou howYouoftenknow we Guntzelman struggle with Perspectives puzzling questions of how to spend our money, where to direct our time, how to handle the competing demands of our lives, how to settle differences, etc. A student may wrestle with dilemmas such as, “I think it would be more responsible to stay home and study for the test and not to go to the movies; yet, I’ve been working hard, maybe I deserve a break or find time to do both.” A judgment is called for. A pru-

dent judgment. Situations crying for a prudent decision seem endless in life: how to break bad news gently; whether to punish a fault or let it go this time; how much to become further involved in a risky or flirtatious relationship; what legislation to vote for in an election that will best promote the common good, etc.? All such matters, great and small, are governed by prudence. We become a prudent and wise person not in making one prudent decision. Prudence is the acquired habit of always, or nearly always, choosing the right means to achieve morally good ends. At times it can be agonizing and demand much of us. Former Yale chaplain William Sloane Coffin said, “The first of the four cardinal virtues of the Roman Catholic Church is ‘prudentia,’

requested a refund, but it was denied. “They s a i d because they had already Howard Ain done the Hey Howard! treatment they put it through,” said Smith. I showed Smith the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency recommendation about duct cleaning. It said duct cleaning has never been shown to actually prevent health problems. “I really wish I would have read this beforehand,” Smith told me. The EPA said much of the dirt and dust in air ducts simply adheres to the duct surfaces and does not necessarily enter the living space. So, it said, cleaning should be considered for only severe cases of mold, dust and debris. The EPA also said, “Pollutants that enter the home both from outdoors and indoor activities such as cooking, cleaning, smoking or just moving around can cause greater exposure to contaminants than dirty air ducts.” I contacted the company Smith had hired, explained how it failed to give her three days in which to cancel, as required by law, and the company has now given Smith all her money back.

prudence. While love is the underlying motive for moral action, the essence of moral judgment itself is the astute and wise judgment we exercise by sifting through all the alternatives presented by the concrete world. And since the alternatives are often so complex, wise judgment is itself a skill and constitutes the virtue called prudence. So, if you hear some friends have called you the most prudent person they know, smile, don’t frown.


Don’t let air duct cleaners clean you out A local woman says she now regrets ever responding to an ad for air duct cleaning. Although the price in the ad sounded good, she says she had no idea what she was getting herself into. What happened to her should be a cautionary tale for everyone. Nicole Smith of Fort Thomas says she now realizes she should have double-checked before agreeing to more and more duct cleaning after responding to an ad. “It said they would clean 14 vents and one return for $49.95. I was like, ‘They’re not that dirty, just kind of sweep it through and get it out of there,’ ” she said. Smith said when the serviceman arrived things were different. “He even refused to clean the ducts because he said they had to have something done. He wouldn’t do it, he said he had to treat it first,” she said. Smith ended up agreeing to a host of things. “It was treatment for a sanitizer to control germs, bacteria and feces, and a product to control mold, mildew and fungus,” she said. That, plus a whole lot more, came to $1,000. After the serviceman left, friends and other companies she contacted all raised questions about the air duct cleaning – including whether she really had mold as the serviceman claimed. So, she called and

which basically means damn good thinking. Christ came to take away our sins, not our minds.” Yes, prudence takes damn good thinking – not merely egotistically deciding what fits my agenda. If we develop prudence, it usually comes from the widest possible observation and experience of human behavior, understanding what constitutes psychological health, and a conscientious awareness of the general moral principles with which God has imbued mankind. Prudence has little correlation with book learning. Some people seem to develop it more readily, some otherwise intelligent persons appear slow to catch on, and geniuses may be totally deficient. Making prudent choices is often laborious, yet the complexities of life make it ever more necessary. Thomas Aquinas claimed that the central moral virtue was

If, in your absence, some friends of yours said you were one of the most prudent people they knew – would you feel complimented or criticized? Prudence sounds a lot like “prude,” doesn’t it? So, are you offended? What is prudence, and what does it mean to be prudent? Prudence is the first of four virtues traditionally named as the most important in the ethical order. As far back as Plato and Aristotle the virtues of prudence, justice, fortitude and temperance have been praised. In “A Concise Dictionary of Theology,” Gerald Collins S. J. says that prudence “entails the capacity to translate general norms and ideals into practice.” A Christian prudence is more than a mere shrewdness to win your case or avoid harsh consequences. It’s more similar to an

Enjoy an easy beef stir fry, a colorful Jell-O dessert Whenever I’m out and about, someone will come up and mention the column. It keeps me aware of what you want. A few weeks ago I got an unusual request for easy, healthy meals. Now that part of the request is not unusual, but the fellow who asked is a bit unusual in that he has some ties to a pretty important “person.” Father Rob Waller, pastor at St. Andrew’s in Milford, needed healthier recipes “a bachelor like me could make.” I sent him some. If you have easy recipes for folks like Father Rob, please share.

Rita’s easy stir-fry beef

If you want, add a handful of snow peas or bean sprouts with tomatoes and onions. 1 pound or less flank steak, thinly sliced across

grain 1 ⁄4 cup or more to taste, soy sauce 1 tablespoon cornstarch 4 tomatoes cut into wedges (if they’re big, use 2) 1 bunch green onions, sliced thin Canola or peanut oil Hot cooked rice More soy if desired Combine beef, soy and cornstarch. Marinate anywhere from five minutes to a day. Film bottom of large skillet with oil. Stir fry beef in batches, adding oil as needed. Place back into skillet and add tomatoes and onions. Cook until hot. Add more soy if desired. Serve over rice.

Velma Papenhaus’ three-layer holiday paradise Jell-O loaf

ship can take you. Dick Herrick, a Mason reader, and I have been friends since we met at Alvey Ferguson, a conveyor company in Oakley, eons ago. I was a bilingual secretary and Dick was an interning college student. Dick’s former neighbors, the Papenhauses, have been close friends of his family for many years. That friendship and this column led Velma to me with her favorite Jell-O recipe . “Red on bottom, white in middle and green on top. Very colorful for holidays,” she said. I think Velma should invite Dick and me over to enjoy a big plateful! Velma uses a Pyrex dish, about 11by-8.

Community Journal North Clermont

November 11, 2009


Don’t forget about loved ones during holidays reserved the home’s elegant sunroom ahead of time. Both of my daughters and their families went – 13 in all. We took refreshments, gifts and party favors. And we had a great time. It’s important that residents of nursing homes are reassured on a regular basis that they are still important members of the family. This list of ideas may help your visits be more meaningful. When you visit, be supportive and affectionate. Hug your loved one when you arrive and leave. Often nursing home residents are only touched when they are dressed or bathed. Plan you visits in

advance. This enables your loved one to have control over at least one aspect of their schedule. Plus, planning ahead allows them to enjoy the anticipation of your visit. Listen to your loved one. Do not talk “at” them. Even if stories are repeated, be a good listener. Speak to all residents as adults, not as children. “How are we this morning?” is patronizing and contributes to low self-esteem. Share news about your life and family, and don’t forget to take photographs. Don’t spend a lot of time asking them about how they feel or if they have

eaten. Share funny stories. Laughter is important. Bring your children and grandchildren to visit, as well as some of their art projects as gifts to brighten the room. It was always obvious to us on our visits as to who had a lot of family support and who didn’t. Some of the rooms were distressingly bare. That’s why it’s important to say “hello” to other residents who may not receive many visitors. Take your loved one for an

outing if they are able to go. A trip to the beauty shop or barber shop, a restaurant, ice cream or a ride in the country means so much to people who are confined to one building. If you live out of town, keep in touch by telephone. We paid for a phone to be installed in my father-in-law’s room so we could stay in touch with him daily. Sends notes and photos often. One last thing, get acquainted with the nursing home staff. Let them know

Holiday Favorites from Bernard’s Farm

Cats can be picky eaters Howdy folks, Well here I go again, we lost a good man but our loss is God’s gain. This feller was a retired Ohio State Highway Patrol Officer. He was a member of the Owensville Church of Christ, and was a good Christian along with his wife. He was the president of the Owensville Historical Society, his name was Roy. He was very dedicated to his church and the historical society, also to his family and grandchildren. Last year he called us, and when we went over to their place they had a garbage can, full of honey bees, so we brought the can home and put them in a hive. Then we took the garbage can back to them. Last week we needed more cat food and dog food while we were at Walmart. There were some folks there getting their cans of cat food. I was watching them, they would read the label and would pick up another can, it seems their cats have trained them on the kind of food they will eat. I was talking to them and they need to feed at a certain time or their cats won’t eat, so they have treats to get them to eat. We have to buy treats for Ruth Ann to give to Dixie, when she sets down on the couch. There is only one brand of cat food our cats will eat. We need to feed Dixie in the house then let Summer in and bring his bowl in for his canned food, then feed Ricochette his out on the porch. Summer will leave a little of his canned food in the

bowl and I put the dry food in and put the bowl and him back outside. When I the bowl George put down RicoRooks chette will Ole hunt around Fisherman the bowl for some of the canned food. This morning Summer ate all of his and when I set it down, Ricochette looked all through it and didn’t find any so he looked up at me. The Monroe Grange nominated a lady from the Bethel United Methodist Church for the non Grangemember volunteer of the year. This lady along with a friend started a free clothing store here in Bethel. The ladies who got the store started are Marie Pelfrey and her buddy. The ministerial association here in Bethel has helped work in it, too. At the Grange Convention, Marie got her award and there were more than 300 in attendance at the banquet to see how dedicated this lady is helping people. She and her husband go to the soup kitchen in Cincinnati to help serve and sometimes takes clothing for the homeless there. Another lady in our church is planning on starting a free food kitchen for the unemployed and the under-employed or anyone who needs a meal. This gal is Brenda, so give a call to the church at 734-7201 if you need this service. The

that you are attentive to the care they give. A simple Linda thank you to Eppler the staff once in a while Community makes life Press more pleasant Guest for everyone. Columnist Linda Eppler is director of communications for Clermont Senior Services.

date for the first one is Nov. 14 from 11 a.m. till 1 p.m. Last Friday evening folks helped set up the Holy House display at the Methodist Church. There were several who helped do this. Our son-in-law Bob has been in charge of this for more than five years. There were 1,772 folks who went through and enjoyed the display Saturday night. The first display is of Jesus’ birth, the second is of his crucifixion and the third is of his resurrection. The ladies popped and made up 1,800 bags of popcorn. The children’s minister, Janet, bought 60 packages of cookies from Kroger. There is hot chocolate, orange drink, water, cookies and popcorn for everyone. Then as they are exiting the church, there is a flier about our services and a Frisch’s coupon for the children. Everyone enjoys this so much. The people who portray the characters are to be thanked and the Lord will bless everyone who took part or helped in any way. Sunday we had our family here for birthday dinners, for our daughter Pauline and our son-in-law Bob. What a blessing to have them all here. Start your week by going to the church of your choice and praise the Good Lord. God Bless All More Later. George Rooks is a retired park ranger. Rooks served for 28 years with the last five as manager of East Fork State Park.

The belle of the ball...Has arrived


The holidays are fast approaching. Family members who live out of town, as well as local family members, will be making plans to visit their loved ones during the holidays. Sometimes those loved ones live in nursing homes. How does that fit into a family Christmas holiday? A few years ago, both of my husband’s parents lived in a nursing home in Louisville. He visited often, and his sister lived nearby and was very supportive. But rather than just have a brief visit at the nursing home, we decided to have a family Christmas party there. We
