Delhi close to naming fiscal officer

By Kurt Backscheider

DELHI TWP. — The township could soon have a new fiscal officer in place. Delhi Township Administrator Pete Landrum said the trustees have been conducting interviews with candidates, and the board could potentially appoint a new fiscal officer at its next meeting. “The selection process is still under way,” he said. “I’m hoping for an appointment at the Jan. 8

meeting.” The new fiscal officer will fill the unexpired term of Cheryl Sieve, who was elected a township trustee in November Landrum and sworn in as trustee Jan. 1. Landrum said 10 Delhi residents submitted applications to be considered for the fiscal officer position. Those 10 residents are Sharon Allen, Edward Cap-

pel, Dianne Clerk, Kati Elfers, Brian Gilligan, Clyde Kober, James Lubbe, James Satzger, Gerard Schroeder and Rosanne Stertz. Sieve “The board was very pleased by the number of applicants willing to serve their township, as well as the amount of qualified and experienced individuals,” Landrum said.

“Out of the10 applicants, five had advanced degrees including CPA, MPA and MBA degrees. “We thank all those who showed interests in serving the great residents of Delhi Township,” he said. Sieve, who was elected president of the board by the trustees Jan. 1, said it’s gratifying to have so many experienced and capable people apply for the job. “I think we’re so absolutely fortunate to have such tremen-

dous candidates,” she said. “It’s been amazing.” She didn’t specify an exact date for when the board will appoint someone to the position, but she said it will be soon. “We’re trying to move the process along as quick as possible,” she said. Whoever is appointed to Sieve’s unexpired term will have to run for election in November 2015 if they wish to retain the seat. The township fiscal officer is paid about $28,000 annually.

Fundraiser supports Seton’s Saints for Life club By Kurt Backscheider

PRICE HILL — The Mother Seton Knights of Columbus Ladies Auxiliary is raising money to help students at Seton High School get to the nation’s capital. The auxiliary is hosting a “paddle party” fundraiser to benefit the Saints for Life club at Seton. Proceeds from the event will help the students pay for their trip to Washington, D.C., for the annual March for Life. “This will enable high school girls to stand up for what they believe in and make a difference,” said Price Hill resident Cathy Lanzillotta, a member of the ladies auxiliary who is organizing the fundraiser. “The students have a big financial need for their trip.” She said a “paddle party” is

an auction style fundraiser in which participants buy $1 paddles and bid quarters to have a chance at winning a variety of auction items. Some of the vendors who will be featured at the event include Thirty One, Mary Kay, Pampered Chef, Tastefully Simple and Origami Owl, she said. The fundraiser is set for Sunday, Jan. 12, at the Mother Seton Knights of Columbus Hall, 4109 W. Eighth St., across from St. William Church. Paddle sales begin at 3:30 p.m. and bidding starts at 4 p.m. In addition to the auction items, ladies auxiliary member Tina Geers said split-the-pot and basket raffle chances will be offered.

Lanzillotta said she’d like to fill the Knights of Columbus hall to capacity and raise as much money as possible for the school club. “This is a way to give back to the community and then some,” she said. “Bring your quarters, bring your friends and spend a fun afternoon helping raise money for these young women of faith.” To learn more about the fundraiser, send an email to This year’s March for Life takes place Wednesday, Jan. 22, on the National Mall in Washington.

Underclassmen at Oak Hills High School recently learned how they can take a stand and prevent bullying. In the month of October, freshmen and sophomores were presented a four-part series on bullying during their Tartan Time, a one-hour homeroom students have once a week. The series was conducted as part of National Bullying Prevention Month and was aimed at educating students about what constitutes bullying and what they can do to stop it. “Anti-bullying is something I’m very passionate about,” said Amy McNabb, a psychologist at the high school. She and Oak Hills math teacher Greg Rolfes worked together to organize the series, which she said offered students segments on cyberbullying, how to recognize bullying and how to intervene when bullying is taking place.

The final segment featured a presentation by Keenan West, a Cincinnati native and motivational speaker who focuses on anti-bullying and bully prevention. “Bullying isn’t something that we’ve addressed in a large manner like this before,” McNabb said. “We decided to start talking about it and empower our kids to stop it.” In a school as large as Oak Hills, even though it has many great students and vigilant teachers, she said instances of bullying are bound to happen. She said bullying doesn’t discriminate and it takes place in every school. “I think it’s a problem everywhere,” she said. The series delivered the message to students that preventing bullying begins with them as individuals, and encouraged students to stand up for their classmates when they see acts of bullying and also tell adults and teachers

Mercy supports leadership workshop in South Sudan WESTWOOD — Mother of Mercy High School is happy to share that the school’s $10,000 winnings from a social media contest held over the summer have been put to great use. The school was the winner in the medium category of the national Social Madness competition, hosted by the American City Business Journals. Mercy donated the money to Mercy Beyond Borders, a group founded by Sister Marilyn Lacey, a Sister of Mercy, which is the organization who sponsors Mother of Mercy. Over the holiday break, Lacey traveled to South Sudan, where a leadership training week took place for 42 young women scholars.

Lacey wrote, “Thanks to Mother of Mercy’s amazing efforts, we were able to provide a leadership workshop that focused on three topics: leadership development, gender-based violence and computer skills. Despite the violence that erupted 100 miles away at that same time, 42 young women were able to take part in the workshop. I am so proud of these scholars, they are really growing in wisdom, age and grace.” Jenny Kroner Jackson, spokeswoman for Mercy High School, said winning the contest allowed students to witness how far the Circle of Mercy can stretch. “We are thrilled that we were able to provide this opportunity for the women of South Sudan

and we are thankful of the relationship we have formed with Sister Marilyn and Mercy Beyond Borders and are inspired by the work they do for women and children,” Jackson said. “While the workshop was not in any imminent

danger, Sister Marilyn shared that it was still an anxious time for all involved as students and trainers alike were both worried about the safety of friends and family elsewhere. We ask that everyone please keep our sisters through Mercy Be-

yond Borders in your thoughts and prayers and thank the entire Mercy community for the support of both Mother of Mercy and Mercy Beyond Borders.” To learn more, visit .

when they recognize it’s happening, McNabb said. Students were encouraged to complete a survey about the program when it wrapped up, which she said asked students if they enjoyed it, if they feel better prepared to stop bullying and what they learned from the series. “We’ve been getting very positive feedback from students,” she said. Oak Hills staff are looking into presenting additional anti-bullying programs later this school year, she said.

Florida trip proves to be special for Elder hoops By Tom Skeen

PRICE HILL — The jolly man with the white beard and red suit was extra kind to the Elder High School basketball team this year. After opening Santa’s presents Dec. 25, the Panthers traveled to Florida Dec. 26 where they played three games in three days to win the Fort Lauderdale Holiday Classic. “It was a lot of fun,” coach Joe Schoenfeld said. “We played pretty well and getting the win, especially coming off a loss (to Walnut Hills Dec. 21) in our last game before we left. It was fun to get back on track and get some wins down there.” Junior Brad Miller was named the tournament’s Most Valuable Player and led the Panthers to a come-from-behind 6254 victory over Atlantic in the semifinal game Dec. 27. He was held scoreless in the first quarter, but exploded for 27 points over the final three quarters.

“He’s playing with a lot of confidence and he understands what we’re looking for him to do,” Schoenfeld said of Miller. “… He’s a little stronger this year so I think he’s able to take the ball to the basket a little more and finish through contact and do more offensively than just be a shooter.” Senior Devin Pike was named to the all-tournament team and is second on the team with 13 points per game and ranks third in the Greater Catholic League with 7.5 rebounds per contest. “… I think now being a senior he feels a little more comfortable and confident in the post,” Schoenfeld said. “… He looks good and looks more relaxed and poised and he realizes he’s a load (in the low post). He can finish with either hand, he can shoot, he’s hit some 3’s for us this year, so he can do a little bit of everything.” As crazy as it sounds, much of the Panthers’ success (7-1 as of Jan. 2) can be attributed to a

79-70 win over Princeton in their season opener. Trailing by double digits in the first half, the Panthers dug out of the hole giving them some momentum to start the season. “It sounds crazy to say the first half of basketball in your first game can be kind of crucial for you, but for us I think it was,” the coach said. “… It was a big confidence booster that we were able to (comeback).” It’s impossible to say if the early momentum of the season will carry over throughout, but Schoenfeld hopes the bond created between the team, coaches and parents in Florida will lead to another Christmas present come February and March. “We have a bunch of guys in different grades and the kids spent time together, as well as the parents, so it gave us a great chance to hang out, socialize and bond a little bit. It was definitely a good experience and we’ll see what it means, as far as the games go, when we come back.”

GREEN TWP. — The Oak Hills boys’ swim team continues to prove they are the best of the west. For the third consecutive season the Highlanders won the Best of the West swim meet at Gamble Nippert YMCA held Dec. 17, knocking off the likes of La Salle, Fairfield, Elder and Taylor. Senior Brian Walker took home the 200-yard individual medley title, while fellow senior Nate Smith was crowned 100-yard backstroke champion. Smith and Walker were also part of the 200-yard medley relay and 400-yard freestyle relay team’s who were also crowned champions. “The guys were really excited about it,” coach Katie Hunter said. “It’s one of their favorite meets and obviously, on the West Side (of Cincinnati) it’s a big meet. We tried some kids in some different (events) and it worked out for us. Everybody stepped up and had a good meet.” The strategy of matching the best-of-the-best against each other paid dividends for Oak Hills, as Hunter’s team

never trailed throughout the meet. “It was a matter of looking at the other teams and just maneuvering around and placing people against other teams’ swimmers with strengths and spreading points out evenly,” the coach said. “We looked at where their swimmers were and we were able to put some of our better swimmers against them and earn some points.” Smith and Walker join a group of seniors, which includes Leland Hoffman, Jonathan Wohlfrom, Nick McManus, Spencer Dennis and Alex Budke. They have been swimming together for four years now and will always be able to say they are three-time Best of the West champions. “They were all definitely excited,” Hunter said of the group. “They were excited they closed it out on (a winning) note.” Each and every one of the seven seniors have impressed Hunter this year and set a standard for future Highlander swimmers. “That group of guys has always been hard-working, moSee SWIM, Page A5

La Salle bowlers roll deep en route to Holiday Classic title By Tom Skeen

MONFORT HEIGHTS — La Salle High School bowlers are without a doubt rolling deep right now. The Lancers won the Holiday Classic at Eastern Lanes Dec. 28 with a score of 4,404, taking down the likes of Northwest (4,310), Middletown (4,305) and Oak Hills (4,229), all of whom rank in the top four in The Cincinnati Enquirer Division I area coaches’ poll. “We got real close in a bunch of tournaments last year and for us to go in there against a big field on a stage like that and finally win a tournament is pretty fun to be a part of,” coach Hollis Haggard said. “It’s so hard to win a tournament, period, and then to win a tournament with as many good teams as there are in the Southwest area, it makes it even more special.” Haggard’s squad features five returning bowlers from last season, including Matt Nichols, Will Mullen and Eric Blessing – all of whom earned first-team All-Greater Catholic League honors last season. Nichols was on fire at Eastern Lanes, bowling a 289, 225 and 279 for a tournament high 793

series, setting a new school record and earning him alltournament honors.

“He’s a senior this year and that’s the best I’ve seen him throw the ball over a three-

game set in the four years I’ve been around him,” Haggard said. “He legitimately could

have had two 300’s. … It’s fun to be a part of it when a kid is able to put it all together like that.” Ben Millard and Danny Reichwein round-out Haggard’s top five who have a sense of calmness over them when it comes to big, pressure moments. “They’ve been there before and seen what tournament style bowling is,” the coach said. “Bowling a tournament and bowling a match is totally different. The first time you bowl a tournament you’re super nervous and once you’ve been down that road three or four times prior, it makes it just that much easier.” With a second-place finish at the Best of the Best in Columbus and third-place at the Holiday Tournament at Western Bowl Dec. 15, high schools know they must play tought against Lancers. “One of the goals we tried to get these kids to understand is that when you come in there with that confidence, other teams are going to look at you and know they’re going to have to bowl their best today because La Salle is here,” Haggard said. “To have that respect and wow-factor from the other schools, that’s exciting for La Salle bowling.”

“We are definitely in an 1984 epic realty show. Unfortunately, it is not a 'show' but the central government intrusion into our lives. “The recent U.S. District Court opinion was on the money. Eroding our private lives is unacceptable. This started when 9/11 caught most of us by surprise.

Many documents have shown that the present wholesale spying on citizens would not have prevented that tragedy. “Secret courts whiteout public information is a danger to the Constitution. One should read that document

to understand the many ways that government agencies are twisting it.”


“Yes, the US should probably adopt the recommendation, but the president has said there will be a decision made about much of this in January. In the post-911 world many parts of our freedom of speech have been curtailed. “The real question is how much freedom are we willing to sacrifice in order to feel safer from terrorism occurring on our soil? And if you have a problem with that sacrifice of freedom, don't use a cell phone.”


Deregulation as an economic stimulus Howard Ain’s assessment of customer’s confusion about the deregulated marketplace of traditional utility service is accurate. However, a strategy that Mr. Ain did not address but truly does benefit residents and small businesses is for communities to adopt a governmental aggregation program. While an aggregation strategy may Donald not eliminate Marshall all the harass- COMMUNITY PRESS GUEST ment that COLUMNIST takes place, residents are assured that the community has negotiated the price as well as the terms and conditions of service with a single alternative supplier. Local communities including the villages of Addyston and Cleves, the City of Cheviot and Green Township have implemented aggregation programs for the benefit of their residents. The elected officials should be commended for taking the initiative to implement aggregation for the benefit of residents and small businesses. While

many believe government should not be involved in such services, unfortunately state law is written in such a manner that local government must be involved so that the benefits of aggregation inure to residents. Aggregation results in lower rates since alternative suppliers assume a greater percentage of the populous will enroll resulting in greater load diversity that leads to lower rates. Aggregation programs allow all residents to benefit and receive the same price and terms of service but residents retain the choice to opt-out of the program. Eagle Energy endorses aggregation programs and would encourage more communities to adopt these programs for the benefit of residents. Eagle Energy administers the aggregation program of 11 communities and through September the residents of those communities have realized $3 million in lower utility rates. Aggregation programs are implemented without cost to residents meaning the realized savings translates into a $4 to $5 million local economic stimulus. Mr. Ain also mentions the



A publication of

PUCO website when comparing rates. The PUCO ignores the sales tax component of natural gas rates. Customers should make sure they are making a valid natural gas comparison when evaluating natural gas rates by including the 6.75 percent sales tax impact on any natural gas offer. Often alternative suppliers ignore this tax when quoting prices. Sales tax does not apply to electric rates. As a final note, the PUCO has issued revised rules for comment dealing with the manner alternative suppliers must abide by in the solicitation of customers and related matters. Eagle Energy in its comments suggested door-to-door solicitation be prohibited especially in communities that have adopted a governmental aggregation program. Eagle Energy also suggested in its comments that additional clarity be mandated when a utility and its marketing affiliate operate in the same serving area; e.g., Duke Energy and Duke Energy Retail Sales.

agree. Although a few prosecutors may abuse the system, most prosecutors have no interest in purposely indicting cases that would be hard to try. Moreover, I have observed that grand jurors, like regular jurors, are independent, serious about their duties, and not easily persuaded to indict an obviously weak case. A unique and important aspect of grand jury service is the oath of secrecy. The oath of secrecy covers the entire grand jury proceeding and is permanent. A regular juror may discuss a case publicly after a verdict is announced in open court, but a grand juror

must keep the proceedings secret forever unless ordered otherwise by a judge. Both grand jury and regular jury service last for two weeks in Hamilton County. If selected for grand jury, you will hear approximately 50 cases each week. In comparison, most regular jurors sit on only one or two cases at most. Perhaps its unique process makes most people who have served on both regular and grand juries prefer grand jury service. Judge Brad Greenberg is a judge in Hamilton County Municipal Court. He lives in Loveland.

The tree crisis: Reviving a battlefield

The drive along Interstate 275 is the scene of a battlefield. Thousands of giant soldiers are in a battle to save their lives. Unfortunately, the enemies are winning. With too many forces working against them, the soldiers don’t stand a chance. They need replacements. The drive, that once provided an awesome view of expansive greenery, is now a scene of barren and broken limbs and masses of dead or dying Tia Garcia trees. ThroughCOMMUNITY PRESS out the Tristate GUEST COLUMNIST region, thousands of trees are caught in a battle against disease, insect infestations and invasive species. The emerald ash borer, an invasive beetle which bores into trees and disrupts the flow of nutrients, is now attacking the nine species of native ash throughout the region. In total, more than 20 million trees will inevitably be lost to the emerald ash borer in the Tristate region within the next 10 years. Other insects are also threatening the tree canopy. In Clermont County, the Asian longhorned beetle is responsible for the loss of 9,000 trees. Although this beetle is expected to be contained and eradicated, it has caused significant damage, and its potential to return requires continued vigilance. Another new threat is the walnut twig beetle, which carries a fungus fatal to black walnut trees. Insect infestations are not the only threats to the region’s trees. Disease and other invasive species also endanger local forests. With the increase of invasive plants like honeysuckle and the flowering pear, forests can’t regenerate and open areas can’t re-forest as they have in the past. The tree seedlings that do survive often fall victim to deer, whose growing population consume young plants before they have a chance to mature. With all these factors working against them, trees and forests are struggling What can be done to keep the trees we have and replace the ones that are lost? The Ohio-Ken-

tucky-Indiana Regional Council of Governments, the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden, the Green Partnership for Greater Cincinnati and the Green Umbrella have joined forces to create Taking Root, a broad-based campaign to address the current and historic loss of the region’s tree canopy. Through education and improved management, the campaign hopes to better maintain existing trees and also to plant 2 million trees by 2020 (one for everyone in the region). This is not the first time the region’s trees have been victims of a battle. In the late 1800s, much of the region had been de-forested. It was during this time when Cincinnati became a prominent leader in the movement to conserve the nation’s forestry. In 1875, Cincinnati natives formed the American Forestry Association. Seven years later, the First Annual Forestry Congress was held in Cincinnati. It called for “the discussion of subjects relating to tree planting: the conservation, management, and renewal of forests.” Two days later, the superintendent of Cincinnati schools, John B. Peaslee, closed all schools and every Cincinnati child went to an abandoned vineyard and planted trees. That vineyard is now Eden Park. In order to overcome the loss of the region’s tree canopy, the community must once again come together. Trees cannot fight this battle on their own, and their loss would result in devastating environmental and economic consequences. Taking Root is leading the battle to save the region’s trees through a collaborative effort in which communities will be provided opportunities to join the fight and help ensure that trees come out the winner.

She is in her fourth year at the University of Cincinnati studying both journalism and communication and will be graduating in the spring of 2014.

Incorporate healthy greens into your diet with pizza

I was flipping through my gourmet food magazines and two items kept popping up as “newbies” for 2014. One is the herb fennel, in particular bronze fennel. I had to chuckle since I’ve grown both green fennel, which produces a delicious bulb, and also bronze, which is grown for its leaves and seeds, Rita for years. Heikenfeld Fennel contains RITA’S KITCHEN vitamin C and potassium, good for immune and nervous systems, and the heart. In fact, I just featured a fennel/garlic crust on pork roast on my cable show “Love Starts in the Kitchen.” Watch it on Time Warner local access. The other trend is kale, but not the oldfashioned curly kale like Grandma grew. Kale varieties are almost endless. You’ll find lots of recipes, including the two I mention in my pizza recipe. Kale is an easy cool crop, so grow some come spring. I’d also like to issue a formal invitation for you to share your favorite recipes and tips along with the story that goes with them. I’m not particular, so whatever you like to cook, whether it’s fancy, plain or in between is fine by me. If you send along a photo, so much the better!

Whole wheat pizza with garlic, greens and two cheeses We grow kale, including Locinato/Tuscan/Dino and Russian kale. Both are milder tasting than curly kale. Mixing kale with Swiss chard or spinach tones down the taste

Mauch, shares this tip: For box cakes, substitute milk or juice for liquid called for. “Adds another element of flavor,” Nancy said. Buying blue cheese in bulk. Dave, a loyal reader, said he found a five-pound bag of blue cheese crumbles at GFS (Gordon Food Service) for $19. He made batches of Nell Wilson’s blue cheese dressing and was looking for an affordable way to do it. Tomato preserve recipe a big hit. Lana Kay, a Northern Kentucky reader, made my aunt Margaret’s recipe last summer. “I was surprised how many people had never tasted them,” she said. Lana shared it with an Amish vendor at a farmer’s market and I have no doubt it will become a big seller. Tomato preserves are another trendy, but really old-fashioned, condiment that chefs will be featuring this year.

Rita’s pizza recipe features healthy greens plus two kinds of cheese.THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD

of kale. Greens like these contain nutrients essential for tissue growth and repair, and even your picky eaters will like this. You can use just chard or spinach if you like. 1 pre-baked 12 oz. Boboli whole wheat pizza shell 2-3 teaspoons finely minced garlic 3-4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil Pizza sauce to cover Enough small Swiss chard or spinach and kale leaves to cover (or large leaves, chopped) 6-8 oz. Fontina cheese, shredded 3-4 oz. crumbled goat cheese Optional: Sliced tomatoes, chives

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Stir garlic into olive oil. Brush over crust. Top with pizza sauce and greens, over-

lapping leaves so entire surface is covered. Sprinkle with cheeses. Slice cherry or regular tomatoes and lay on top if you like. Bake 10 minutes or until cheese melts.

Tips from Rita’s kitchen

Substitute Gorgonzola for goat cheese.

Priscilla Pancoast’s heirloom corn pudding Wow – talk about lots of requests for this! The original recipe came from Priscilla’s mother’s cousin, who was from Niles, Ohio. “This almost has a cult following,” said Priscilla. Check out my blog for more corn pudding recipes, including the famous Beaumont Inn’s corn pudding, along with an old-fashioned version of this treasured

side dish. 2 eggs 1 stick of butter1 package Jiffy corn muffin mix 8 oz. grated cheddar 8 oz. sour cream 1 can yellow corn with juice, approximately 15 oz. 1 can cream-style corn, approximately 15 oz.
