Delhi students’ caring adds up for community By Heidi Fallon

Delhi Middle School students showed just how much they care about their community in a very big way raising the most money ever for the school’s Caring and Sharing program. A holiday project for many years, money donated by students is forwarded to the PTA which, in turn, helps families in need. “Many of the families we help are from our own school as well as the community,” said Brandy Smith, student council advisor along with fellow teacher Kim Schibi. “This year we raised more than $3,000 with one homeroom raising over $1,000. It’s a great program and the staff finds ways to encourage the competition among our 24 homerooms.” Eighth-grade math teacher Chad Cornelius and his homeroom were the biggest contributors to the program. “We raised $1,006 in two week and were the only ones to exceed $1,000,” Cornelius said. “My students are all eighth-graders and this is their last year here, so it was nice for them to leave such a great legacy.”

Andrew Rogers, one of Cornelius’ eighth-grade homeroom students, donated the most thanks to his personal savings plan. “I brought in my piggy bank,” Rogers said. “I’ve been putting money in it for13 years and I used my lunch money.” He emptied his bank and donated $150. Other top givers were classmates Meghan Roark, who said she walked dogs to help her earn the $146 she donated; and Wes Ross, who contributed his birthday money to the $102 he donated. “It’s a really great program and helps people in the community to be able to get what they need,” Ross said. “It’s fun, too, to have all the challenges here at school to see who can donate the most.” Principal Dan Beckenhaupt credits his staff with dreaming up the friendly competitions, like the candy cane challenge, during the two-week fundraiser. “The staff does a wonderful job and the students are unbelievably generous,” he said. “The best part of the program is that we are helping our own families and students.”

Al Duebber has three great loves in his life – his family, his community and his cars. Duebber will have more time to devote to all those now that he’s retired from his automotive business and politics. Duebber opted not to seek a third term as Delhi Township trustee, but said he’ll continue to be active in groups like the civic and business associations and Kiwanis. “I’m not going any where,” he said. “I’ve lived and worked here my whole life. I love Delhi Township.” Recovering from recent back surgery, Duebber and his wife, Debbie, are postponing their travel plans until he gets the green light from his doctors. Along with traveling, Duebber plans on continuing his work with a car ministry program called Wheels that fixes cars and gives them to low-income people in desperate need of transportation. “It’s a wonderful program, done by volunteers, and I feel blessed to be a part of it,” he said. Duebber’s fascination with most anything with a steering wheel started when he was youngster. He walked past the J and F garage on Mayhew Avenue most every afternoon on his way to visit his grandmother. “I stopped in one day to give them a hubcap or something I’d found in the street and they offered me a job,” he said. “They paid me $5 a week to sweep up and clean tools and jobs nobody else wanted to do.” He put to use what he was learning around the garage to build his own vehicle of sorts using a lawn mower engine and spare parts. “I’d ride that thing up and down the street,” he said with a grin. “It was a lot of fun.” As a teen-ager, Duebber invested in the first of many Model A’s. “My first real car was a 1931

Model A and that’s the car I had when Debbie and I started dating in high school,” he said. “It didn’t have turn signals so I made a big arrow out of cardboard and who ever was riding in the back seat had to stick the sign out the window when I was turning.” Duebber’s long list of public service includes two terms on the Oak Hills school board. He ran, he said, after serving on a variety of committees and in advisory roles with the district. His career in the automotive car business includes a wall full of awards and a stint as a sponsor representative for NASCAR. “I did that for 10 years,” he said. “It was mostly white-collar stuff, but it was a lot of fun and I met some really great people. It was a great experience.” During his time on the trustee board, Duebber said he’s most proud of seeing the Delhi Road corridor plan completed, helping establish the Financial Advisory Board and watching as more peoSee DUEBBER, Page A2

Part of Bridgetown Road may be named for Sgt. Kreuter In honor of a Miami Township Marine who died in combat while serving in Iraq, state representatives Louis Terhar (R–30th District) and Peter Stautberg (R–34th District) introduced legislation that designates a portion of State Route 264 (Bridgetown Road) as the “Sergeant David Kreuter Memorial Highway.” Kreuter graduated from St. Xavier High School in 1997 and joined the U.S. Marine Corps Reserves in1998 after his first year of college. His company – Lima Company based in Columbus – was activated in 2005 and deployed to Iraq the first week of March. Just several weeks before he was scheduled to return home from Iraq, Kreuter was one of 14 Marines in an

amphibious vehicle who were killed by a roadside bomb in August 2005. The portion of Bridgetown Road from the municipal corporation of Cleves and extending east to the intersection with South Road would be named in honor of Kreuter. Pat Murray, Kreuter’s mother, said she and her family are truly heart warmed by the fact the state may be naming the road in memory of their son. “We’re greatly honored by this recognition,” she said. “It is very, very meaningful to our family.” Her grandfather grew up in Green Township and her grandmother grew up in Cleves, and she said her grandfather used to frequently walk up and down


“It’s very stressful and you can never make everyone happy with any decision.” Duebber said his years in elected offices took a toll on family and he’s happy to leave it all behind. “I enjoyed serving my neighbors and community, and I’m looking forward to what comes next. We want to travel and spend more time together,” he said. “What is going to be really nice is that we won’t have to arrange our travel plans around Wednesday night trustee meetings. “I feel blessed to have served.”

ple became involved in the community. “I think through FAB and the task force before that, more people were becoming engaged and that’s so important to a community thriving,” he said. What he won’t miss about being involved in politics is, he said, “the politics.” “Al never takes anything lightly and wants do any job right,” Debbie said.

Bridgetown Road to visit her grandmother before they were married. “That road holds a lot of historical significance for us,” Murray said. Ken Kreuter, David’s father, said Bridgetown Road was also a central point in their lives as David and sisters were growing up. Mr. Kreuter said the road delivered them to school at Miami Heights Elementary and Three Rivers Middle School, took them to scouting events at the Miami Township civic center and got them to baseball games at Kuliga Park. “We have some pretty strong ties to that section of Bridgetown Road,” he said. Mr. Kreuter said it’s been more than six years since his son was killed in Iraq while serving his country. Some days it’s a lit-

he said. Tributes like this and the support his family has received from friends and

neighbors are proof his son did the right thing when he stepped up to serve his community, he said. “We really appreciate everyone in the community for what they’ve done to recognize David,” Mr. Kreuter said. “As a retired Navy commander, I cannot think of another bill that I would be more proud to introduce as my first than HB 401. Sergeant Kreuter was a true American hero, and the least I can do to honor his service is rename a portion of State Route 264,” said Terhar. “As a fellow graduate of St. Xavier High School, I am privileged to help honor and recognize the immense sacrifice of Sergeant Kreuter and his family,” Stautberg said.

Mercy mentors

Students at Mother of Mercy High School recently wrapped up a six-week mentoring program in which they helped area fourth-grade girls learn more about information technology. Mercy students interested in information technology take part in a program called INTERalliance. The high school students wrapped up visits to Our Lady of Lourdes, St. Catharine, St. Martin and St. Antoninus schools, where they led fourthgrade girls in activities involving technology, the Internet, social media safety, Animoto videos and graphic design. Mercy students traveled to the grade schools during the first five weeks of the program, and during the final week of the program the grade school students went to Mercy. At the high school, the younger students snapped pictures using Photobooth, learned about the Apple iPad and

Playhouse brings production to Price Hill The Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park’s production of “War,” by Canadian playwright Dennis Foon, will perform at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Jan. 13, at Prospect House, 682 Hawthorne Ave. in Price Hill. Cost is $4 for adults, and $1 for children aged 11-18. Call 513-921-1613 or 513300-639 to reserve a seat. There will be snacks and a discussion afterward. “War examines how aggression and violence permeate youth culture as four young men struggle with the pressures of competitiveness, anger and vulnerability. According to Playhouse Director of Education Mark Lutwak, “’War’ is a powerful and rich play that explores the ways in which boys use warfare as a metaphor for their lives: in sports, with their peers, in academics and in their relationships with others, particularly women. Contemporary ‘manhood training,’ as laid on young boys by popular culture, adults and peers, is wildly out of sorts with the kind of maturity that we expect and need from the our next generation. This play raises important questions that will be discussed long after the performance is over.” The playwright uses invented language to stand in for harsh slang, creating a poetic and highly theatrical experience. Performances will include a facilitated talkback to help students articulate and re-

An exhibition of prints from The Saint John’s Bible, the first handwritten and illustrated Bible to be commissioned by a Benedictine Monastery in 500 years, will be featured in an exhibition at the College of Mount St. Joseph’s Studio San Giuseppe Art Gallery Jan. 17 to Feb. 26. This long-awaited, modern illustrated Bible was commissioned by the Benedictine community of Saint John’s University and Abbey (Collegeville, Minn.) in 1998 and has taken more than a decade to complete he more than 1,150 pages. The original Bible consists of meticulously prepared calfskin vellum pages with hand lettering using feather quills and ancient inks. The images are hand-colored by brush with hand-ground pigments by master calligrapher Donald Jackson along with a team of scribes and visual artists. The exhibition will include large giclee prints and accompanying text that highlights the creative process from the gathering of accomplished calligraphers and illuminators, to a selection of traditional materials including gold and silver leaf and ancient Chinese inks, to the creation of a correspondingly contemporary script.

St. Antoninus youth coach retires after 23 years of fun By Ben Walpole

The St. Antoninus fifth- and sixth-grade football team closes its season with a celebratory banquet every year the Tuesday before Thanksgiving. This year’s gathering, Nov. 22, at The Meadows was particularly special, though. St. Antoninus bid farewell to coach Rich Capodagli, who is retiring after 23 years with the program. “It's about the kids, the parents and the program in general,” Capodagli said. “I’m unbelievably thankful that 23 years of my life were part of it. I should have had to pay them to let me do it. That’s how much I loved it.” Capodagli, known simply as Cappy, got into coaching like many parents do – he coached his sons. He remembers those early years when low turnout made fielding a full team a struggle. “We tried to get people interested in the sport and it seemed to work,” said Cappy of him and his fellow coaches. “We just love the game. It wasn’t a complicated thing. We wanted them to have fun. We wanted them to have a reason to come out there.” It didn’t take long before the numbers skyrocketed, presenting a different problem, albeit a good one to have. “How do I get 35 kids in the game with 8-minute quarters,” Cappy said, laughing. Cappy only coached his sons for two years. They moved on in the program. He kept coaching, and coaching, and coaching. “We go out there on Saturdays – it's just so much fun,” Cappy said. “And I think if you can reflect that to the kids that it’s fun it makes a big difference.” Cappy pushed the spotlight of his retirement from himself onto the kids and the families that have come through the program. Those kids and the families didn’t quite agree. Dozens of former players surprised the coach at the year-end banquet to honor the man who helped inspire their love for the game. Some personal memories: “All three of my sons played football for Cappy. Back in 2005 while practicing for a playoff game, instead of making the boys work hard, Cappy and the other coaches mixed it up a bit and made it fun. One of the coaches brought a rooster to Schott Field

and let the boys run around and try to catch it. They had a blast on a beautiful fall afternoon chasing this rooster around. I remember picking my son up from practice and he had this big grin on his face, telling me about the rooster and how much fun they had trying to catch it. And apparently they did finally corner it in the bathroom area of the concession stand. LOL!”

– Josalyn Koopman, mother of three St. Antoninus football alumni, including Jake Koopman, who went on to play receiver at St. Xavier and now Mount St. Joseph.

“While I never coached with Rich (I coach at the lower level), I have had two sons play on his team. His most enduring attribute is his dedication to fairness when it comes to playing in the game. He has consistently given all the players the opportunity to play in the game on Saturday. As he said to me, ‘If they work hard at practice they deserve to use what they have learned.’ He did not change even to the consternation of some of the parents. With the win-at-all-costs attitude that is all too prevalent in youth sports (especially Westside football), his understanding that it's not about him but about the players is a lesson that needs to be highlighted and taught to all those who coach a youth sports team.”

– Randy Anderson, fellow football coach at St. Antoninus.

“There are so many things that I could say about Cappy. He always made it fun to come to practice for both the players and the coaches. The kids really related to him. Cappy did such a great job of teaching them not only about football but also about life. I have never been around anyone in sports who was as fair to everyone as Cappy. St. Antoninus will miss him tremendously.”

– Mike Ramstetter, who coached with Cappy at St. Antoninus for nearly two decades.

“Coach Cappy was easily one of my favorite coaches I have ever played under. I would say his best characteristic was how he connected with his players. He would crack (jokes) all of the time, and most of the other kids I don’t think really understood them, and that was the reason me and him were so close. He was always so light-hearted and could always make me laugh. I simply just loved to be around the man… I just remember how he would always come up to me and grab my

face mask and rattle my helmet around for fun. Just the little things like that are what I liked about him the most. I also remember how before every practice we would run a lap and then go over to the hill to run and after that we would all huddle around him and he would give us a snap count and when he said ‘hut,’ we would hit our helmets. He would make it on 3 and try and fool us to try and hit it early and if we did then everyone had to take another lap. We would do that a couple times and looking back on it was a great memory.”

PRICE HILL — Elder sophomore wrestler Evan Morgan has not yet been to the state tournament, but he knows not only will he be there soon, he will be a state champion one day. “People say qualifying for state this year would be great,” Morgan said. “But I expect myself to be on the podium; I know I can do that.” As a freshman, Morgan placed fourth at sectionals making him a district qualifier, fourth at the Coaches’ Classic and lost in the third-place match in the 135pound weight class at the Greater Catholic League Tournament. Just a sophomore, he acts like a seasoned veteran, and according to Elder wrestling coach Dick McCoy, there is a reason for that. “He came in as a freshman with a lot of mat time.” McCoy said. “He is a wrestling gym rat. He goes to every open mat, every camp and clinic he can get to. He stepped into a varsity lineup and was pretty seasoned, it wasn’t like he was in awe as a freshman. He has made himself a better wrestler than he was years ago, and if he continues to develop he sure is going to be something.” It’s never easy for a freshman on varsity in any situation, but it’s especially difficult when you are the lone freshman on the team and you are competing against and beating the older kids on the team.

“(My freshman year) I spent a lot of time alone training (with the coaches),” he said. “I just had to focus on what I wanted to do and wrestle my heart out.” His sophomore season is off to a solid start with a 13-4 record with nine victories via pin. He won his first five matches of the year, four by pin and one by a 15-0 major decision, then put on a solid showing at the Glenn Sample Classic before struggling at the Brecksville tournament bowing out with a second-round loss. When Morgan went through slumps last season, such as when he lost three straight matches in the middle of the season, he bounced back with fourth-place finishes in the Delaware Hayes Tournament and the GCL Tournament. “(Evan) has improved in every facet of wrestling,” McCoy said, now in his 30th season as Elder’s coach. “I think he worked at getting better all around. He’s just a blue collar, hard-working kid. If you are a warrior in this sport, you can be successful.” As this season goes on and Morgan gains more experience, one thing is for sure: Morgan has the will and the confidence to take his game on the mat to the highest levels. “I know I will (win a state championship); I know I can,” the 135-pounder said. “I don’t know if it will be this year, but by my senior year, I know I will win a state championship.”

– Mark Jacob, former St. Antoninus football player and current standout on the St. Xavier football team.

“It all started 20-plus years ago when Cappy came to St. Antoninus. Back then he used to pick up players from distances not close to the school so he could field a full team. Cappy went on to have a great coaching career winning one championship and finishing second two other times, but the thing I remember is not the winning. Cappy had the gift like no other coach where he could relate to fifth- and sixthgraders on a whole different level. He always made every kid feel important whether they were the best on the team or not. He gave them all so much attention so much as to go so far as to give them all nicknames. I have watched over the years in amazement how he bonded with the kids and how so many of them would come back to visit even after their days as a Jaguar. He was the most fair coach in the Western Football Conference and the new Greater Catholic Youth League and one of the most respected. His enthusiasm never wavered over his years coaching and it is the reason he stayed around so long. Cappy for 20-plus years was more than just a football coach to the kids of St. Antoninus; he was a friend and someone the kids will never forget. I had the privilege of playing two seasons for Cappy and coaching with him for eight seasons, and he will be greatly missed. Cappy helped build the St. Antoninus football program and the leagues we play in and for that we will always be grateful.”

– Todd Turner, St. Antoninus alum and coach.

West High basketball beats rival Elder by 3 points By Kevin Flanagan Western Hills Sports Information Director

For the past 10 seasons, Western Hills was dealt a loss by their neighborhood rival Elder. The 2011-12 Western Hills Mustangs made sure that this streak would not continue. Mustang guard Darrell Bullock hit two clutch free throws with 10 seconds left in the game to help seal the 57-54 Mustang victory Dec. 30. Lionel Hill led with five points in the first quarter

as Western Hills built a 12-9 lead after one. Elder jumped ahead for the first time (15-13) since early in the first quarter when guard Thomas Mazza hit two free throws at the five minute mark. Hill hit a deep threepointer to put the Mustangs up 22-19. After two quarters Western Hills led 24-20. In the first three minutes of the third, Western Hills went on a 7-4 run to build its lead to seven and looked to put away its neighborhood


Lawrenceburg High School recently was home to the Tri-State Championships 10th Annual Martial Arts Tournament.

rival. Elder forward Taylor Lee made sure that did not happen. He used his quickness and strength inside over the Mustang big men to get wide open labs and trips to the foul line. The Panthers tied the score at 34-34 with just over two minutes left in the quarter after the Mustangs coughed up the ball three straight possessions. Bullock hit a jumper from the right wing to end a three-minute scoreless drought for Western Hills

as they took a 36-34 lead at the 1:25 mark. The quarter ended with two late Panther free throws as Western Hills hung on to a 39-37 lead. The fourth quarter would be a memorable one for both teams the rest of the season. Elder jumped to a 49-45 lead with two Lee free throws with 4:08 left in the game. Two steals by the Mustangs over the next few minutes led to some easy scoring chances that they capitalized on as they

took a 52-51 lead. After Hill’s jumper to put the Mustangs up 54-53 with a minute left, Elder looked to run down the clock a bit and look for a good shot. They had their chance to take the lead from the free throw line, but could only convert on 1 of 2 free throws. With the score tied at 5454, the Mustangs looked to hold it for the last shot. As the Western Hills scoreboard hit 10 seconds, Panther guard Alex Lind

fouled Bullock near the half-court line as he tried for a steal. Bullock hit both free throws and Elder could not tie or win the game with multiple chances at the basket. Hill hit one more free throw and the Mustangs improved to 5-3 on the year with a three-point victory. Elder’s Lee led all scorers with 23 points and Western Hills’ Hill added 22 for the Mustangs.

Column pointed out effects of fracking Kudos to State Rep. Denise Driehaus’ excellent column on fracking (hydraulic fracturing drilling process) in last week’s Delhi Press. Last summer, my wife and I watched the HBO Summer Series documentary, “Gasland” mentioned in her article. We found it to be a rare example of documentary art and jaw-dropping reporting. It was a wake-up call to us that should generate a response from everyone who sees it. Actually, the documentary may become to the dangers of fracking natural gas drilling what “Silent Spring” was to DDT. Not surprisingly, it is the 2010 Sundance Film Festival award winner and has been nominated for the 2011 Academy Award for

best documentary feature. As Mrs. Driehaus pointed out, this is a must-see documentary. The documentary points Paul out how ConAshworth COMMUNITY PRESS gress' 2005 Energy Policy Act, GUEST COLUMNIST crafted by former Vice President (and ex-Halliburton exec) Dick Cheney, exempted fracking from long-held environmental regulations such as the clean air and clean water acts. Freed from customary federal regulations, natural gas companies have drilled like wildcatters in 34 states where huge shale

A person of quiet courage

Karren Innis lived with her parents and younger brother in California, Nevada and Oklahoma for the first 10 years of her life. She then moved to Hurst, Texas, and finally settled in Cincinnati soon after finishing college at Mary Manse College in Toledo, a college run by Ursuline nuns that closed in the 1970s. Karren majored in music, but turned to proofreading as her career of choice. She has worked for the last 35 years at Clovernook Center in the Braille transcription department. Karren says that she has recently been proofreading magazines such as The New York Times Book Review and Harper's Magazine. Karren loves her work, and, surprisingly or not, she spends some of her free time reading books and periodicals including mysteries by Mary Higgins Clark and the Guidepost magazine. Karren and her husband, Bill, also enjoy attending plays at the Covedale Theater at 4990 Glenway Ave. They both greatly appreciate that the Covedale offers audio described plays such as “White Christmas,” attended by them on Dec. 3. In addition, Karren and Bill spend a lot of their free time as active members in two leading organizations that work hard to improve the quality of life for people who are blind or visually impaired. Karren's greatest joys in life are her14-year marriage to her husband, Bill, her career as a proofreader, and her volunteer work with the National Federa-

Volunteer opportunities include working side by side Spring Grove’s nationally-renowned horticulture team at this National Historic Landmark. Groups of volunteers will be developed to help in the following areas: Keeping the front entrance area looking spectacular, controlling invasive species, taking care of the tree and shrub collection. They are also looking for a volunteer, or volunteers, to help with the hybrid tea roses. New volunteers join the volunteer docents who are ambassadors for the cemetery and arboretum. For more

NFB and ACB both are organizations “of“ people who are blind or visually impaired, who, with their sighted friends and colleagues, give unstintingly of their competence, ability and skill to let the world at large know that they are an important part of this old world. They are the ordinary people of quiet courage performing their jobs, making their marriages work, and taking care of their families just as others do. Karren, aged 66, and Bill, aged 74, are beginning to think about retirement. Whether they decide to move to Texas and become caretakers for Karren's elderly father with health problems, or they stay in Cincinnati and increase their volunteer work; they will add to the pool of goodness in our world.

Thank you Mrs. Driehaus for introducing the bill to protect Ohio from the continent-wide explosion of fracking projects that threatens watersheds and river

basins, the source of our drinking water. Paul Ashworth lives in Delhi Township.

Pit is very important to culture


fields contain gas deposits. The documentary maker had ventured west from his home in Pennsylvania to Colorado, Wyoming and Texas, three states riddled with natural gas drill sites. The seat-of-pants investigating documented astonishing and disturbing findings, not least of which is how many residents can customarily light a flame near their tap water outlet and set the polluted water on fire. The primary cause is a cocktail of toxic chemicals, blended with water, which must be used in fracking. Of the 632 chemicals pumped thousands of feet down into the earth, more than 75 percent have been found to have long-term health effects on people, animals and livestock.

A publication of

In the October issue of Cincinnati Magazine Bill Hemmer writes about the “electric atmosphere at The Pit on a Friday night.” No doubt, this is where the Elder spirit is best expressed. But that “Purple Thing” is rooted not in football, but in a culture that created the school itself. During the 1800’s the Price family developed the Hill. And, although they were not of German Catholic decent, they made this segment of society; perceived at the time to be the underclass, feel welcomed. Accordingly, the Catholic population within Price Hill grew exponentially. In 1917, The Price Hill Civic Club’s president, and the premiere Covedale advocate, John Prout, petitioned the city for a Public High School. Recognizing that the east side enjoyed the status of four, he demanded “Equal Recognition” for the west side. However, his efforts fell on deaf ears. Price Hill residents sensed a prejudice; fueled by the city’s anti German posturing during World War I. At the same time prominent Price Hill families, seeking the privilege of higher education for their children, moved to the east side; in neighborhoods designed to appeal to persons of a “high class of citizen-

ship” – void of poor Catholic immigrants. Collectively, these events established the east side/west side cultural Jm Grawe battleground, our COMMUNITY PRESS validated west side underGUEST COLUMNIST dog mentality, and motivated the building of Elder High School - an achievement of immense pride considering that Western Hills High School opened six long years later. For many, Elder’s cornerstone is the chip on our west side shoulder. We dare others to knock it off by welcoming them to the Pit, where the privileged must compete on a level playing field. To date our underdog identity has served us well – especially at the Pit, where on third and long situations it provides a needed burst of adrenalin. But I wonder. Will the Purple Nation’s next generation be willing to party to the underdog song and dance? After all, are we not now the privileged? Perhaps, like the Price family, it is our turn to welcome and live among the underclass – sharing our skills in a way that breaks

people out of the cycle of poverty. Perhaps this is the way to bridge history and progress, and fulfill the promise of our faith-based education. Of this I am certain. For me, and those I grew up with, living within earshot of the Pit was special. As children, we listened to the announcer’s voice echo off the buildings and gauged the Panther’s success by the cheers of the crowd. As adolescences we walked to the games and anxiously awaited our right of passage – being in the cheering section. As students, having roamed the streets of “Pantherville” (Elder’s back yard parishes) we considered ourselves to be a better pedigree of panther. Maybe I’m too much the romantic. But, as an adult I rarely miss a Friday night game at the Pit. In part, because it’s where I can be a kid again; a part of me thinks I’m in Pantherville – a neighborhood with unique stories to tell; about our history, our culture and ourselves – stories that help us understand that “Purple Thing”.

Author: Raise taxes on millionaires

Dear Sen. Portman: Last spring I sent you a message about how taxes should rightly be raised on those most able to pay – that is, the millionaires and big companies whose lobbyists are part of the no new taxes chorus. Here is an excerpt of a reply that I received from "": "I believe that increasing taxes is irresponsible during a weak economic recovery. This view is shared widely by economists across the ideological spectrum. Doing so can particularly hurt small businesses, which tend to create around 60 percent of new jobs. This results in even higher unemployment, and stressing an already fragile economy.” Please senator, send me the names of just two left-leaning – or centrist – economists you refer to. Furthermore, senator, I wonder how it is that no one in the GOP could produce even one millionaire willing to speak on this topic to the folks at National Public Radio on Friday, Dec. 9, 2011 –

not even with three days’ notice: "We wanted to talk to business owners Sue who would be Leitner So, COMMUNITY PRESS affected. NPR requested GUEST COLUMNIST help from numerous Republican congressional offices, including House and Senate leadership. They were unable to produce a single millionaire job creator for us to interview. “So we went to the business groups that have been lobbying against the surtax. Again, three days after putting in a request, none of them was able to find someone for us to talk to. A group called the Tax Relief Coalition said the problem was finding someone willing to talk about their personal taxes on national radio." To re-iterate my questions to

you, senator: 1) Please provide the source for your assertion last March 29 that the idea that raising taxes on the top tier of taxpayers "is shared widely by economists across the ideological spectrum." 2) Please address the issue of why no one in the GOP leadership could produce a millionaire – nor even a lobbyist – willing to speak on this issue to NPR even with three days' notice. I will respectfully offer, sir, a quote that has long been wrongly attributed to a variety of people across the political spectrum: "If you repeat a lie often enough, it becomes the truth. If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. If you repeat a lie often enough, people will believe it. If you repeat a lie long enough, it becomes truth. If you repeat a lie many times, people are bound to start believing it." – Source unknown. Sue Leitner is an Anderson Township resident.

Homemade soup, stock perfect for winter’s day It’s a soup day at my house. We spent most of the day outside. We cleaned out the flue on Rita the woodHeikenfeld stove, RITA’S KITCHEN spread some ashes and chicken manure on the garden, and took down the last of the outdoor decorations. I meandered through our little patch of woods down to the river and the sun made the water positively sparkle. It’s cold enough that small patches of ice hung onto the bank. Today was the perfect day to hang out bedding, too. When my head touches the pillow tonight and the fresh aroma of a winter’s day surrounds my senses, all will be right with my world.

Joy of Cooking’s version of U.S. Senate bean soup Cathy, an East reader, wanted a recipe for this famous soup, which to this day is still served in the Senate’s restaurant in Washington, D.C. One story goes that the bean soup tradition began around 1900 at the request of Sen. Fred Dubois of Idaho. Regardless, it’s a soup that’s stood the test of time, and there have been a bunch of recipes replicating it.

The best that I have found is from, Ethan and Susan Becker’s online site. It’s a fun and easy site to maneuver through, and tells the history of the Joy of Cooking family. When they lived in Cincinnati, both Ethan and Susan were always ready and willing to share their abundant talents. And they’re still doing it, but now from their Half Moon Ridge retreat in the mountains of East Tennessee. I made a version of this in my pressure cooker. Check out my blog, Cooking with Rita, at for details. 1¼ cups small dried white beans, such as navy or Great Northern, rinsed and picked over 1 small ham hock 7 cups cold water

Soak beans. Drain and place in a soup pot with ham hock and water. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat, and simmer until the beans are tender, about 1¼ hours. Remove the ham hock (leave the soup at a gentle simmer). Discard the bone, skin, and fat; dice the meat. Return it to the pot and add: 1 large onion, diced 3 medium celery ribs with leaves, chopped 1 large potato, peeled and finely diced 2 garlic cloves, minced 1½ teaspoons salt ½ teaspoon black pepper 2 tbsp. chopped parsley

Rita shares the "Joy of Cooking" version of U.S. Senate bean soup. THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD

Simmer until the potato pieces are quite soft, 20 to 30 minutes. Remove from the heat and mash with a potato masher until the soup is a bit creamy. Stir in parsley.

Immune-boosting homemade vegetable stock For Frank, a Dayton reader who gets this column online and who is leaning toward becoming vegan. “I want to make my own stock so it’s completely natural,” he said. This is lighter in taste and texture than stock made with bones or meat. If you like, add a bit of soy sauce (check label for ingredients) or the vegan equivalent at the end of cooking time for a deeper flavor. 2 large cloves garlic 1 generous cup each: carrots, celery and onions, chopped 1 leek, chopped, white part only 2 bay leaves Handful fresh parsley

Tips from Rita’s kitchen Why this stock is good for you: Onions, leeks and garlic are good for your cardiovascular system Carrots are good for your eyes Bay is a salt buster Parsley is like a vitamin pill in a plant Thyme has a peppery flavor and is both antiseptic and anti-bacterial Cloves have anti-inflammatory qualities (some dentists still use clove oil) Tarragon has a savory licorice flavor, and has potassium, which can help blood pressure Pepper has antioxidant qualities Oregano fights colds and soothes joints 2 sprigs thyme, about 2 inches each 1 whole clove Shake or two of dried tarragon or a 3-inch fresh sprig, optional 8-10 peppercorns 1 teaspoon dried oregano 8 cups water

Put everything in soup pot and bring to a boil. Cover, lower to a simmer and cook for 1 hour. Strain. Season with salt and pepper. Can be refrigerated up to a week or frozen three months.

Check helps Salvation Army programs The Cincinnati/Dayton Division of Kroger, in partnership with Witron Logistics, a Kroger transport carrier, presented a $10,000 check Dec. 27 to The Salvation Army of Cincinnati as a contribution to their Christmas and Emergency Assistance programs. “Benevolent opportunities available to us through our generous suppliers, such as this one, allow us to offer much needed support to this invaluable organization,” said Rachael Betzler, public relations manager of Kroger’s Cincinnati/ Dayton Division. “The Salvation Army assists more than 65,000 individuals in our neighborhoods each year. This $10,000 will help ensure the continuation of these programs, which include youth development and child care, senior services, housing programs, and other vital services for our area.” “This contribution is a

wonderful blessing to our local assistance programs,” stated Matt Pearce, divisional development director at The Salvation Army. “Over the past several years, we’ve continued to experience an elevated level of need in our local community. Many families are struggling to get by, and need help with basic items, as well as with rent or utilities. And at this time of year, the only means many families have to share Christmas joy is through the various Christmas Assistance programs offered by The Salvation Army.” This year, just in Hamilton County alone, The Salvation Army served more than 11,000 individuals, including more than 8,000 children, through the Adopt-a-Family and Toy Shop programs.

Carefully check refund policy on daily deal websites Daily deal and couponing websites are attracting many people on the Internet. There are many great deals offered, but what happens if you don’t get the deal for which you paid? Lisa Anderson of Hidden Valley Lake says she’s used the Living Social website about a half dozen times and likes the variety of offers it has. “I’ve used them before for manicures and pedicures and things like that. I saw a coupon for an auto detailing package that was a really good price and decided I would go ahead and try that,” Anderson said.

After paying half price with the offer, $45, Anderson tried to contact the detailing company. “I tried over a period of two weeks to schedule the appointment by phone. I got no response, not even a call back to say were busy,” she says. She tried to contact them over the Internet but also got no response. Finally, Anderson contacted the website Living Social and requested her money back. She was told to wait because sometimes a vendor may be overwhelmed by the huge response received for an offer.

Eventually, Anderson received an e-mail saying she can’t get a refund. “They do not refund. You get a credit toward some future purchase with Living Social,” she says. There are plenty of offers on the Living Social website, so Anderson says she’s confident she’ll be able to buy one of them to use the credit. But, she says, it would have been nice to know in the beginning there are no refunds. “Buyer beware a little bit more, and research how these outfits really work,” she says. To avoid getting caught

up in impulse buying, most deal websites like Living Social offer you at least five days to cancel and get a full refund. After that time, Living Social says it only provides refunds if the merchant goes out of business. Otherwise, you’ll get a credit good for another deal. For high-priced items, like vacation trips to China costing about $1,200, Living Social says it will give you a full refund, no questions asked, up to 30 days after your purchase. That allows both the customer and the merchant to confirm the purchase.


Living Ain Social’s re- HEY HOWARD! fund policy is found on the company’s website in the “Terms and Conditions” section. This is something you should check out before you buy from any coupon or deal website. Howard Ain answers consumer complaints weekdays on WKRC-TV Local 12.

Annual Girl Scout cookie sale start Friday Beginning this Friday, Jan. 13, girls in Southwest Ohio will begin taking Girl Scout cookie orders. All Girl Scout cookie sale proceeds stay in the community. For a second year, Girl Scouts of Western Ohio will be offering customers a premium selection of the best-selling Girl Scout cookies of all time. Research shows that nearly all Girl Scout cookie customers have a favorite among these best sellers: Thin Mints, Samoas, Tagalongs, Trefoils and Do-SiDos.

In addition, new this year is a lemon wedge cookie called Savannah Smiles, which pays tribute to the 100th anniversary of Girl Scouting. A total of six Girl Scout cookies are offered this year. The cookie mission remains the same. A Girl Scout cookie can still help buy school supplies for underprivileged kids, or fly a troop of girls from Cincinnati to Washington, D.C. “Girl Scouts is the best leadership development program for girls in the United States,” says Barba-

ra J. Bonifas, CEO of Girl Scouts of Western Ohio. “The Girl Scout cookie sale is a hands-on leadership and business activity where girls develop five essential skills – goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills and business ethics. Troops often decide to spend some of their cookie sale earnings investing in the community through service projects. “Our annual Girl Scout cookie activities, in addition to United Way funding, help us make the Girl Scout

Leadership Experience available to all girls who want to participate,” Bonifas said. In addition to the money earned by the girls, Girl Scout cookie proceeds support leader training and camp operations, as well as a variety of Girl Scout program activities. Girl Scout cookies are made by Little Brownie Bakers. They are available in six flavors and are selling for $3.50 a box.
