Groups at odds over OH logo By Kurt Backscheider

The Oak Hills Athletic Boosters and the Little Highlanders organization could end up in court regarding the use of a logo. The Athletic Boosters has requested the Little Highlanders stop using the Old English “OH” service mark or legal action may be taken, but the Little Highlanders contend the Athletic Boosters do not own the service mark and cannot prohibit their use of it. “The Boosters have made a claim they own the ‘OH’ service mark,” said Ed Badinghaus, president of the Little Highlanders and a 1990 Oak Hills High School graduate. “We don’t believe they own the service mark. We believe it should be owned by the school district and the community.” He said the Little Highlanders, a youth football and cheerleading organization, has been in existence for more than 40 years and has been using the logo on its helmets and uniforms for decades. Taking the “OH” symbol and what it represents away from the roughly 420 children who play football and do cheerleading for the Little Highlanders doesn’t

hurt the parents and coaches, Badinghaus said. It hurts the children. “They deserve to feel that sense of community, the ‘One Heartbeat,’ from the time they’re in kindergarten through the time they’re in 12th-grade,” he said. “They deserve to be part of the community. “I think it’s sad, and I think it needs to stop. Is this the right thing to do for the community,” he said. Jim Frondorf, vice president of the Boosters and a 1976 Oak Hills graduate, said the Boosters’ ownership of the mark is on file with the Ohio Secretary of State. The Oak Hills Board of Education also passed a resolution Monday, Feb. 3, recognizing the Boosters as the owner of the mark. Beginning in September 2013, the Boosters asked organizations in the district who wish to use the service mark to pay a $25 fee and agree to a list of terms for using the logo. Frondorf said 16 groups were sent the usage agreement, and so far13 have signed the agreement. He said one group declared no intention of using the logo and opted not See LOGO, Page A2

GREEN TWP. — Springmyer Elementary School is coming together to support one of its families and invites the community to join in helping. Michelle Ellis, the school psychologist at Springmyer, said this past summer the Linnig family found out their youngest daughter, 3-year-old Kylie, has a form of childhood cancer. Springmyer staff keeps in close communication with the Linnigs, who also have a daughter in kindergarten and a daughter in the fifth-grade at Springmyer, and Ellis said she closely follows a blog the family started to let everyone know how Kylie is doing. “I was looking at the care page and saw that her mom had posted some information about ways people could help, and one of the ways was donating blood,” Ellis said. After reading about how Kylie has depended on blood donations, Ellis decided to take action and organized a blood drive at the school. Springmyer will host a blood drive for the Hoxworth Blood Center from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday, Feb. 10, in the school’s gymnasium, 4179 Ebenezer Road. The blood drive was originally set for a day in December, but had to be rescheduled due to a school snow day. “Everyone wants to be able to do something to help, and this was something I could do,” Ellis said. Several Springmyer teachers and parents have signed up to donate, as well as many teachers and parents from throughout the Oak Hills district, she said. Community members interested in donating can schedule a time online at

Price Hill Beerfest returns for second year By Kurt Backscheider

WEST PRICE HILL — Beer connoisseurs, along with those who simply like beer, are invited to whet their whistles at the second annual Price Hill Beerfest. The showcase of beer takes place from 4-8 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 16, at Price Hill Chili, 4920 Glenway Ave. “It’s something different,” said Steve Beltsos, co-owner of Price Hill Chili and a West Price Hill Civic Club board member who helps organize the event. “We won’t have your run-of-

the-mill beers. We’ll have a lot of local craft beer.” For $20, Beerfest attendees will receive 15 sampling tickets and have more than 20 different craft beers from which to choose. Food from Price Hill Chili will be available for purchase, but the event will feature a limited menu. Beltsos said he and fellow Civic Club board member and amateur beer connoisseur Charles Bazeley decided last year Price Hill needed its own beer showcase. “There are beer festivals all over the city,” Beltsos said.

“Why shouldn’t we have one?” Longtime Price Hill resident and Civic Club member Marilyn Schutte, whose husband, Beltsos Bob, is the club’s treasurer, said they really enjoyed last year’s Beerfest and they plan on attending again this year. “It was wonderful,” she said. “Everyone was in a great mood and really happy.” See BEERFEST, Page A2

The Boosters’ attorney sent the Little Highlanders a letter near the end of January indicating the Boosters has used the logo since the 1960s and asking the Little Highlanders to cease using the service mark. If the Little Highlanders refuse the request, the letter said the Boosters may elect to file a lawsuit. “The Boosters believe that this issue is so important that we are committed to do whatever is necessary to maintain the integrity of the mark,” Frondorf said. Badinghaus said in addition to disagreeing the Boosters own the logo – he said the Boosters twice allowed its ownership of the mark to lapse – his organization also declined signing the agreement because it doesn’t agree to a term which gives the Boosters authority to revoke

the use of the service mark if the Boosters feel the use of the mark is potentially damaging to its mission. “Our right can be taken away at their discretion,” he said. “We don’t agree to that.” “My sense is that personalities have gotten in the way to some extent, and that some on the Little Highlanders side haven’t given enough thought to the damage that could be done by unscrupulous or inappropriate use of this important symbol of our community. Our goal is to establish and enforce standards of use that most reasonable people would agree upon.” Badinghaus said the Little Highlanders organization has supported the community and school district in countless ways, and to have its loyalty and character questioned isn’t something they take lightly.

She said gatherings such as the beer festival provide opportunities for neighbors to catch up during the winter, and it’s also a good way to bring people to Price Hill who aren’t familiar with the neighborhood and what it has to offer. “It’s just a neat event,” Schutte said. “It’s a fun way to spend an afternoon.” Not only does the festival give people a chance

She said her family appreciates the care and help they’re receiving. “We would like to thank the Springmyer family for their support in hosting this blood drive,” she said. Ellis said blood donors can help save lives. She said about 400 people need to donate blood each day to ensure a safe and adequate blood supply for the area, so in addition to supporting the Linnig family, donors are helping the entire community. She said the Linnig family is thrilled the school is hosting the blood drive. “They are such a sweet family, and they are really touched we are putting this on,” Ellis said.

The $20 ticket also includes a commemorative sampling glass. Tickets are available at Price Hill Chili. “If you want to try some different types of beer, this is the place,” Beltsos said. “It’s a good time.”

Historical society explores Cincinnati’s Boss Cox era

These models turn heads.

One of the most notorious political figures in the history of Cincinnati was George B. Cox, better known as Boss Cox. While having only served as an elected official for a brief stint, he effectively controlled city politics for many years by way of the influence and power he wielded in his role as a city ward boss.

Pike goes full circle, inks with Demon Deacons By Tom Skeen

PRICE HILL — The recruiting process came full circle for Elder High School senior Devin Pike. Pike inked his National Letter of Intent to play college football for Wake Forest University and coach Dave Clawson Feb. 5, but not without the usual ups and downs provided by the recruiting process. “It was a lot of weight off my shoulders getting everything out of the way,” the tight end said, who had 34 receptions for 400 yards and two touchdowns his senior season for the Panthers. “I know where I’m going now, I don’t have to worry about things and I can focus on what’s ahead of me.” Clawson was named coach of the Demon Deacons more than two months ago, but Pike has been on his radar much longer. He was one of the first coaches to offer Pike a scholarship back in February 2013 while he was head coach at Bowling Green State University. With many Division I offers on the table, Pike turned down Clawson and BGSU’s offer and verbally committed to the University of Louisville in July. That all changed in December when Louisville coach Charlie Strong and his much of his coaching staff, including offensive coordinator Shawn Wat-

son, left for the University of Texas. “(The coaching change) was a big part of it because I was with them the whole summer,” Pike said of why he changed his mind. “… If coach Watson would have stayed I

may have considered staying, but I think Wake Forest is a better fit overall.” It was a decision that thrilled Clawson. “… We just approached him and asked if he’d have interest and he said,

‘yes,’” Clawson said of his maneuvering after Pike de-committed from Louisville. “We met with him and his family and got him here for a visit and I think he really fell in love with Wake Forest and we thought he’d be a great fit for what we’re trying to do here, so that was a great get for us. We’re thrilled he’s coming.” The familiarity factor was a big reason Pike had no hesitation faxing his NLI off to Winston-Salem, N.C., just a hair after 7 a.m. on Signing Day. “I felt confident in the coaching staff there,” Pike said. “They are players-first coaches and they know what they’re doing. They are great guys and I could tell that by just being with them.” Clawson wouldn’t comment as to his expectations for Pike as a freshman until he sees him in live action, but his high praise for Pike’s on-film production leads you to believe his impact will be felt soon. “He does everything you need a tight end to do,” Clawson said. “He’s a physical run blocker, he’s very athletic, he gives us a great mismatch against linebackers in the pass game and against safeties in the pass game and I just think he’s going to be a big-time tight end for us. We like his skill set, we like his work ethic (and) we like everything about him.”

Rules tightened for homestead exemption The state Legislature has limited eligibility through an income qualifier for the Real Estate Tax Homestead Exemption for most new applicants after Jan. 1, 2014. This clamp-down is yet another in a series of moves made by the state to offload expenditures onto local governments and citizens. Other changes made in the past two years include more than a 50 percent cut of state funding to counties, municipalities, and townships and elimination of 12 ½ percent rollbacks on new or replacement levies on owner-occupied residential property taxes. Taken together, these cuts will literally save the state (and revert these costs back to citizens and communities) well over a billion dollars annually with that amount growing

every year due to new levies coming on, the death of current Homestead recipients, and the potential growth in state Dusty Rhodes COMMUNITY PRESS tax revenues. Under the GUEST COLUMNIST current version of the law, taxpayers already receiving the Homestead exemption (normally worth around $300 to $400 per year for a homeowner) will be “grandfathered” and will be eligible to receive the break going forward… unless there is a change in their status such as not owning and living in an Ohio residence or no longer being classed as totally disabled. Special attention should be

President Obama has said addressing income inequality will be the focal point of his agenda for the rest of his term. What can be done to address income inequality? “I am afraid that the president looks at people as if they were all cattle and each should have the same amount of feed since all cows should have ‘equal outcomes’ to their life. “The president has the same mentality as a thief and his strategy for income equality is to steal from the ‘haves’ (with high taxes) and give to the ‘have nots.’ This is the strategy of destruction. “In America people are born with equal opportunity not the promise of ‘equal outcomes.’ With our God-given freedom of choice capability, we all have the freedom to select our path in life given our capabilities. “In a classroom , should the hard working ‘A’ students give part of their grades to ‘F’ students who sleep in class – thereby rewarding all students with a

‘C ‘ grade? In business, should the successful people be punished to provide ‘equality’ to others? To address so called ‘income inequality,’ the government should allow businesses to grow with less regulation, lower taxes and no harassment. “Allowing easier business startups, and business growth – with less government interference will provide more income for everyone.” T.D.

“Our free enterprise system provides unlimited opportunities if you are willing to work hard and smart. All jobs have different pay scales based upon value, difficulty, experience, and responsibility. Unlike Socialistic systems, we all have the right to accept or refuse a $7 or a $700 an hour job. We also have the right to be self-employed. What is so unfair and unequal about that? Our president’s socialistic agenda must be stopped.” D.M.

You have a one-time opportunity to apply and be approved without income qualification as long as you own and live in the same home that you did on Jan. 1, 2013. Such “late application” must be received at the auditor’s office on or before June 2, 2014.

Dusty Rhodes is the Hamilton County auditor.

Ohio’s tea party activists focused on school board races around the state in last November’s elections. Statewide tea party school board candidates all had the same script: » cut school funding by opposing school levies; » cut teacher benefits and reimbursements for things like classroom supplies; » eliminate support services, sports, food services and busing; » a confusing “students first” pledge which in reality appeared more like a teachers last pledge or even a students are kind of important – but not as important as low property taxes pledge. They lost big time in most cases. Springboro, Olentangy (West Columbus) and Westerville all rejected the tea party school board candidates on their ballots. Locally, West Clermont Local School District wasn’t so lucky. In West Clermont, tea party member Jim Lewis received the most votes, followed closely by Steve Waldman and Mark Merchant. Lewis, Waldman and Merchant ran together on a tea party-inspired platform

that vowed to protect overtaxed citizens from “mooching,” overpaid teachers. Lewis wrote,“In my Richard mind, the fate Schwab of our future COMMUNITY PRESS as a nation deGUEST COLUMNIST pends on turning back the hands of time and teaching our children instead of propagandizing them.” Lewis vows to fight against any new school levies that might be proposed by “ill-informed do-gooders.” He states he will go forward “to slay the dragon that is public education in West Clermont.” Parents and community members in Clermont County, who are concerned with the direction of their new school board, decided to step up and do something by forming “West Clermont United.” Members of West Clermont United say some of the new school board members don’t support public schools and that there’s an imbalance in the political views with the new board. “We are here to support the kids. Kids come first. Aside

from all the political agendas. That needs to be left outside the policies for the school...We don’t really look at our public education system as something that needs to be slayed,” said Mike Steele, a local parent and member of West Clermont United. Steele says entering the new year, it’s time to pass a levy – something that he says hasn’t happened in years. He says, “I’ve got a daughter who’s in first-grade who’s never been to an art class, never been to a gym class, never been to music. Our libraries at this point are being run by parent volunteers. Otherwise our children wouldn’t have a library.” The students, teachers and families in Ohio’s public school districts need school boards focused on ensuring that children receive the highest quality education possible. School board elections need our closer scrutiny. Their outcomes have real consequences. Richard O. Schwab was formerly associate head of school, and middle school head, Cincinnati Country Day School. He is founder of Glendale Organizing For America Community Team.

eligible for the exemption in the current year. If, in the future, the taxpayer(s) report an income below the eligibility threshold, the exemption may be approved for that year. New Homestead applicants who are not required to file an Ohio income tax return must submit appropriate documentation to the county auditor to prove income eligibility. It should be noted that Ohio adjusted gross income is not necessarily the same as the total income received in a household. Receipt of Social Security benefits would be a major example of an income source not considered for OAGI and thus not affecting eligibility for the Homestead exemption. The normal filing period for the Homest ead exemption is

Retro Fittings draws RECORD CROWD S

t. Vincent de Paul’s recent 11th annual RetroFittings event was attended by a record-breaking 800 guests. The event was moved to Music Hall this year because of repeat sell-out crowds. The new Creative Director, Joe Rigotti, used the new venue, Music Hall, as inspiration for this year’s theme, “A Night at the Opera.” The event showcased the fashion designs of more than 55 students from the University of Cincinnati's College of Design, Architecture, Art and Planning. Each student was given a $10 voucher to shop at one of St. Vincent de Paul’s seven Thrift Stores to redesign and create an ensemble inspired by one of eight famous operas. Each design was modeled in a New York style fashion show by UC students and other special guests including event emcee Artrell Hawkins, Cincinnati Bengal Adam Jones and owners of Cincy Style Edit, Marsha Ashley and Brock Maitland. The event also featured a boutique filled with vintage and trendy items donated to St. Vincent de Paul’s thrift stores, cocktails and h'ors d'oeuvres, raffle prizes, and a live auction with items such as a one-of-a-kind jewelry piece designed by Krombholz jewelers. Proceeds from the event will benefit St. Vincent de Paul's efforts to bring hope to the front

Bread recipe easy for beginners Things to do when you’re just ‘loafing’ around the kitchen Today is a bread baking day. The idea actually started yesterday when my friend Joanie Manzo, a Loveland reader, brought me a loaf of homemade cinnamon bread. Divine! So it got me in the bread baking mood. I didn’t have time for cinnamon bread but knew I’d have time to make this easy recipe for Italian bread. I kept one loaf for us and sent the other to Tony and Debbie, our neighbors. With this wicked icy weather, a warm loaf of bread with a bowl of steaming stew is a comforting supper.

Italian bread for beginners and everyone else I like this recipe for its simplicity. The flavor and texture is like the kind you get at a bakery. The crust is a bit crisp and pale gold. I’m giving detailed instructions here. Check out my blog for tips on kneading and step-by-step photos. If you want, sprinkle poppy seeds on the bread after shaping. 1 package (1⁄4 oz.) active dry yeast 2 cups warm water (110 degrees to 115 degrees) Pinch of sugar to feed yeast 1 teaspoon sugar 2 teaspoons salt 51⁄2 cups all-purpose flour

Stir yeast in warm water, adding a pinch of sugar to “feed” the yeast. It’s ready when it looks foamy on top, a few minutes. Pour into mixing bowl and add sugar, salt and 3 cups flour. Beat on medium speed for 3 minutes. Rita Pour in Heikenfeld remaining RITA’S KITCHEN flour and mix on low to form soft dough. On very lightly floured surface, knead until smooth and elastic, about 8 minutes or so. It may be sticky at first, but will get smooth, like a baby’s bottom. Place in greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in warm place until doubled, about 1 hour or so. Punch dough down. Divide in half. Shape each into a loaf. There are two ways to do this: Simply make loaf shape with your hands about 12 inches long, or roll dough into an approximate 12inch by 7-inch rectangle. Roll up tightly from long side, pinch seams to seal and place seam side down on sprayed or parchment-lined pan. Cover and let rise until doubled, 30-45 minutes. With sharp knife, make four shallow slashes

Rita’s Italian bread recipe is perfect for beginners. THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD

across top of loaf. Bake at preheated 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes, or until golden.


» Make this by hand? Of course, and you get a workout, too! » Measure accurately. Flour settles as it sits. Whisk a bit or stir before measuring. Measure by spooning lightly into cup and leveling off with knife. » How warm is 110-115 degrees? Best to use an instant read thermometer, which is inexpensive and accurate. Water is just right when you put some on your wrist and it’s warm enough for a baby to drink from a

bottle. » How to tell when dough is doubled. Rising time is a guide only. Use fingers to make indentation about 1⁄2 inch into dough. If the indentation remains, the dough has doubled. For the second rise after shaping, make a small indentation in the dough near its side. If the dent remains, the dough is ready to bake.

Good-for-you egg scramble

Adapted from an Ellie Krieger recipe. February is heart month, so here’s a recipe that fills the bill for health but doesn’t sacrifice flavor. I like this stuffed into a whole wheat pita spread with

mashed avocado and sprinkled with a little Feta.

ture and stir into eggs. Stir in dill, season to taste.

Olive oil ⁄2 cup red onion, diced 2 Roma tomatoes, diced 4 whole eggs 4 egg whites Palmful fresh dill, chopped, or 1 teaspoon dried leaves Salt and pepper

Tip from Rita’s kitchen


Film nonstick pan with olive oil, about a tablespoon. Add onion and cook a couple of minutes until soft, then add tomatoes and cook another minute. Put in bowl and set aside. Beat eggs together. Pour into skillet and cook until almost set, stirring frequently. Drain excess liquid from tomato mix-

Freezing avocados: Yes, you can. Jungle Jim’s had them on sale so I bought a lot, mashed the flesh, squirted with lemon juice to keep the color and froze it.
