Park lodge getting makeover By Heidi Fallon

The Delhi Township Park Lodge is in the midst of a remodeling project that should be completed next month. Parks and Recreation Director Sandy Monahan originally had planned for $50,000 in work that included new flooring, updated kitchen and bar areas, and a new exterior. Trustees, however, agreed that two restrooms should be included as well, adding another $15,000 to the project. All of the funds will come from the township’s tax increment financing fund. “Trustees decided that restrooms needed to be remodeled and should be part of the

remodeling,” Monahan said. It’s the second major make-over for the lodge that Trustee Jerry Luebbers remembers. He said when he first became a trustee in 1970, the then park board was just finishing a remodeling project. Estimating the lodge at “well over 50 years old,” Luebbers said some of the kitchen

and bar equipment also date back to the late 1950s. He said it would take $2 milltion to 3 million to replace the lodge. “We just can’t go there financially and are doing the best we can to make the lodge last as long as possible,” Luebbers said. “Anything we can do to improve our parks, I’m all for.” Monahan said much of the work is being done by township employees to save money. She said events that had been scheduled for the lodge will be moved to the senior/community center or park office during construction. “By adding the bathrooms, we probably won’t be completed until the second week in March,” she said.

Specifically, Schroeder township officials are looking for input on the recycling bin locations, currently at Delhi Township Park and the senior/community center. There have been concerns that debris overflows the bins making it unsightly for neighbors.

Township Administrator Gary Schroeder said recycling efforts have been so successful, “it is outgrowing the current capacity.” Residents are encouraged to provide comments regarding current and suggested drop-off locations and alternatives to address the capacity issue, such as expanding curbside pick up. Comments can be made either in person at the trustee meeting at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 24, or emailed to Schroeder at Comments received will be considered prior to an anticipated decision at the March 10 trustee meeting.

Bayley Place sews up spot in Fine Arts Sampler Weekend

By Heidi Fallon

Bayley Place will be one of the featured sites for the 130 free performances during the Fine Arts Fund Sampler Weekend, sponsored by Macy’s, Saturday and Sunday, Feb. 20 and 21. “Bayley Place is excited that we will be one of the west-side locations for this year’s Get Smart about Art Festival that is a part of the Fine Arts Sampler, on Sunday, Feb. 21,” said Molly O’Connor, development officer for Bayley Place. Bayley Place will be participating through the Greater Cincinnati Music and Wellness Coalition, comprised of more than 25 organizations around Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky.

The organizations work together to advance research-based recreational music making programs that offer a variety of health benefits such as stress relief and relaxation. Coalition member organizations have experienced positive outcomes for all ages and abilities as a result of implementing two unique music programs. The first is the Clavinova Connection which uses electronic keyboards that enable each student to experience the thrill of playing beautiful music with orchestrated accompaniment without having any musical background. The three clavinova labs in Cincinnati are at Bayley Place, Colerain and Anderson townships. HealthRHYTHMS is a

similar music program that uses drums to engage groups in musical recreation and relaxation. Bayley Place will have performances of both starting with the Clavinova Connection from noon to 2 p.m. and the interactive drum circle at 3 p.m., both on Feb. 21. Bayley Place is at 990 Bayley Place Drive, across from the College of Mount St. Joseph. The Fine Arts Fund Sampler Weekend is a celebration of the way arts bring people together and marks the first weekend of the annual Fine Arts Fund campaign.

50 years and a lot of chicken

Olga Larkin said 50 years have passed by pretty quick. When you’re selling 10,000 pieces of chicken each week, you don’t have time to slow down. “Fifty years is a long time, but it doesn’t seem like it’s been that long,” said Larkin, who owns and operates Ron’s Roost with her sons, Ron and Mark. The Bridgetown restaurant is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, and Mrs. Larkin has been there from the very beginning. She and her late husband, Ron, bought a Hitching Post Restaurant franchise on Harrison Avenue in

1960, and four years later they built a new restaurant with the same Hitching Post name just around the corner at 3853 Race Road, where Ron’s Roost is still located today. She said in the first 15 years she and her husband ran the restaurant they did not take a single day off work. In the early 1970s, she said a delivery truck hauling a giant fiberglass chicken drove by the restaurant, and her husband jumped in his car and followed the driver. “My husband fell in love with that chicken,” Mrs. Larkin said. He bought a giant chicken of his own, mounted it on the roof of his restaurant and the business has been a

west-side landmark ever since. The Larkins changed the name of the restaurant from the Hitching Post to Ron’s Roost in 1976. Mrs. Larkin said the secret to maintaining a successful family business for five decades is simple. “You just have to work at it, that’s all,” she said. It also helps to serve good, quality food on a consistent basis, and have good employees and loyal customers, she said. One of the Roost’s longtime customers is Cincinnati Mayor Mark Mallory. Mallory, who stopped by the restaurant Monday, Jan. 25 with several other local elected officials to recognize the Larkin family for 50 years in business, said he’s been eating at Ron’s Roost for 25 years. “This is a great familyrun restaurant,” Mallory said, noting that businesses like Ron’s Roost will help the Greater Cincinnati

region survive and prosper. “It’s restaurants and business owners like the Larkins who are really the backbone of our economy.” Green Township Trustee Tracy Winkler said the township is proud to be home to what has been voted Cincinnati’s best fried chicken. “We’re so pleased Olga and Ron Larkin decided 50 years ago to locate their business in Green Township,” Winkler said. In addition to receiving a proclamation from Mallory and a framed certificate from Winkler honoring the restaurant’s 50 years, State Sen. Bill Seitz (R–8th District); State Rep. Bob Mecklenborg (R–30th District) and Sean Kelley, field representative for U.S. Rep. Steve Driehaus (D–1st District), were also on hand to present Ron’s Roost congratulatory proclamations and letters on behalf of their legislative bodies.


From left, Ron’s Roost owners Ron, Mark and Olga Larkin look on as Cincinnati Mayor Mark Mallory reads a proclamation from his office declaring Monday, Jan. 25, 2010, as Ron’s Roost Day in the Cincinnati region. Mallory and several other local elected officials, including State Sen. Bill Seitz, State Rep. Bob Mecklenborg and Green Township Trustee Tracy Winkler, gathered at the Bridgetown restaurant Jan. 25 to recognize the 50th anniversary of the family business. Ron Larkin thanked all the officials for recognizing his family’s business, and he expressed his deep appreciation to his mother for sticking it out for so many years – especially toughing out the early years. “Hopefully we’ll be around for another 50 years,” he said.

Although Mrs. Larkin does take days off work now, she is still at the restaurant most days reviewing the books and doing the scheduling for about 50 employees. “People ask me when I’m going to retire,” she said. “This is my retirement home.”

Heart Assoc., TriHealth offer CPR training The American Heart Association estimates that more than 95 percent of cardiac arrest victims die before reaching the hospital. However, when CPR is administered, the survival rate increases to 31.5 percent. In Cincinnati, only 14.1 percent of cardiac arrest victims receive bystander CPR. In an effort to improve that percentage and save lives, TriHealth and AHA have teamed up to provide free

CPR training kits to community organizations that are willing to facilitate a selfdirected approach to CPR training of their members. The revolutionary new approach to CPR training, called CPR Anytime, was developed by the American Heart Association. The research-proven “practice while watching” technique allows users to practice CPR on a personal mannequin while watching a DVD. CPR Anytime was created to increase the incidence of bystander CPR by making training more accessible. Now through the support of TriHealth, kits will be distributed free of charge to community groups that will commit to training at least

five people per kit. “Heart attack care is a top priority for TriHealth, and we believe that working together as a community will allow us to have a bigger impact on survivability and post-attack quality of life,” said Nancy Dallas, administrator of cardiovascular services for TriHealth, the community partnership of Bethesda North and Good Samaritan hospitals. Each CPR Anytime kit includes an inflatable CPR mannequin, a skills practice DVD, instruction manual and program accessories. CPR Anytime coordinators are required to facilitate the education of members in their program, training as many individuals per kit as

possible (minimum five per kit). “This is TriHealth’s third year to donate CPR Anytime kits to community organizations in partnership with AHA. The Greater Cincinnati community has embraced this lifesaving initiative,” said Dallas. “Together, we can make a difference.” To order CPR Anytime kits, community groups must complete an application, available from Jenny Hobbs at the American Heart Association, 8428868, or at under the “Serving the Community” section of the home page. Applications must be submitted by Feb. 26.

Architects chosen for new Mercy hospital Mercy Health Partners will be working with local and national architecture firms in designing plans for the new Mercy hospital in Monfort Heights. Champlin Architecture, of Cincinnati, was selected as the architect of record for the project. Ellerbe Becket, of Minneapolis, will serve as the lead design architect for the

new hospital. It will be built on a 60acre parcel of land on North Bend Road near I-74 in Green Township. Champlin Architecture is a leader in health-care design and has worked on numerous health-care projects in Greater Cincinnati and Ohio, including the design for the new Mercy Medical Center Mount Orab,

and the Heart Hospital and patient tower at Mercy Hospital Fairfield. Ellerbe Becket is one of the top health-care design firms in the world. They have designed state-of-the-art facilities for clients that include the Mayo Clinic, Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota, and Catholic Healthcare Partners.

Foundation helps west-side children By Peter Robertson

During the week before Christmas, 12 boys and girls found Santa coming not down the chimney, but knocking at the front door thanks to the work of the Foundation 4 Westside Kids. “It’s a really wonderful feeling,” said Debbie Burnette, founder of the Foundation 4 Westside Kids. In a phone interview, Burnette said the foundation distributed amenities like coats, outfits, blankets, all sorts of toys and for the older girls makeup. “They would just light up,” said Burnette when describing the looks on the children’s faces when she came to the front door with green and red bags and wrapped boxes with bows. But getting the trays of tape, stacks of cards, bales of wrapping paper and piles of bows and ornaments to make this all happen would not have been possible with

out the help of the community. Ken Wassler, owner of Wassler’s Meats Inc. on Harrison Avenue, was one of the first businesses Burnette called for a donation. Burnette said she immediately received a donation. “We’re pretty liberal about giving money … we help out whenever we can,” said Wassler. Wassler’s Meats along with many other businesses raised $1,350 in donations to help the children have a better Christmas, but Burnette has bigger plans for this coming Christmas. “I intend to do that 10 times over next year,” said a very enthusiastic Burnette. “When you see the faces of the ones you did help you just really wish you could do more,” said Burnette. “But we’re thrilled. We have good people on the Westside. Bottom line.” For more about Foundation 4 Westside Kids, e-mail Burnette at foundation4

The foreclosure crisis is still a crisis. To meet a continuing need, the Advocates for Justice Collaborative of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati’s Social Action Office – a network of 25 parishes – and the non-profit organization Working In Neighborhoods (WIN) have scheduled two foreclosure forums this month to explain the problem and help homeowners behind on their payments. The programs will be presented at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 23, at St. Martin of Tours Church in Cheviot and 2 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 28, at St. Columban Church in Loveland. The partnership between the Catholic Social Action Collaborative and WIN began last year when parishes voted foreclosures as one of the top two issues that they wanted to work on. “It’s been wonderful to see this relationship emerge between the Advocates for Justice Parish Collaborative and WIN,” said Tony Stieritz, director of the Catholic Social Action Office. “On one end, many parishioners throughout the area have been looking for something concrete to do to help the countless individuals and families who are losing one of their most important assets. On the other end, WIN continues to look for opportunities to reach out to people who may be on the brink of foreclosure as well as find more volunteers who can help.” Recently the State Fore-

closure Working Group, made up of 11 state attorneys general, reported data that one in seven borrowers are behind in their mortgage payments. The report raised concerns that the number of foreclosures will continue to rise. “The loss of jobs and income is affecting the ability of many homeowners to make their mortgage payments, said Dave Scharfenberger, chairman of the Foreclosure Task Force of the Advocates for Justice Collaborative. “With the expected increase in foreclosures, we need to reach out to those in crisis and offer support to our neighbors in need.”

Scholarship honors Marine veteran By Kurt Backscheider


Henry J. Mueller III, center, a 1966 graduate of Elder High School, is recognized by fellow classmate Ken Barnhorst, left, and Elder principal Tom Otten, right, at halftime of a home football game this past October. Mueller, a Marine veteran who lost his sight when he was wounded in the Vietnam War, had a scholarship named in his honor at Elder. examples of how a man should act, gave him the foundation and faith he needed to get through that difficult time in his life. “Hank is an inspiration to anyone who knows him,” said Deters, a fellow 1966 Elder graduate who now lives in North Bend. “He’s still the same nice guy he was in high school. That’s just who he is, and you wouldn’t expect that with what he’s been through.” After being medically discharged from the Marines, Mueller went back to school and earned his degree in religious studies. He now lives in Ocala, Fla., with his wife and three daughters and works as a lay minister. Deters said he and about eight other of Mueller’s friends from high school still get together for reunions, at Mueller’s request, once or twice a year when he visits Cincinnati. He said this past summer the group of friends decided

Shop owner committed to staying open

Susan Neyer said it was her dream to open her own business. Although business has been tough this past year, she said she’s not going to quit now. “I won’t give up,” she said. “I want to stay here. I love this community, I grew up here. I’m going to do everything I can to stay here.” Like many small business owners scraping by in the slow economy, Neyer has had to wrestle with the tough decision of whether to close the shop she opened in November 2008, or try to stick it out. She and her husband, Joe, spent many late nights turning an empty storefront at 1211 Rulison Ave. into the headquarters for her professional event coordination business, Elegance and Old Lace. Rather than give up on a dream 20 years in the making, she’s decided to work hard to stay open and make her business more adaptable. “We struggled this year, but we’ve managed to survive,” she said. “We’ve made a lot of changes.” Neyer, who plans weddings, corporate events, private parties and helps people decorate their homes for any occasion, recently launched a new Web site to boost her business. Visitors to can learn more about the services she offers, view

they should do something to honor Mueller, so they established a scholarship in his name at Elder. “He’s a tremendous fan of Elder and he’s a strong advocate for military veterans,’ Deters said. “We knew Hank wouldn’t accept a gift, so we came up with the scholarship idea. It’s great for him and it’s great for the students who will take advantage of it,” Deters said. The group of friends sent letters to all their classmates and organized a fundraiser at Jim & Jack’s On the River. In only three months they raised more than $15,000 for the Hank Mueller/Elder

into the world,” he said. “It’s a real blessing to be a graduate of Elder High School.” Mueller said he’s honored to have been chosen to represent the class of 1966, the veterans who have graduated from Elder and especially his four classmates who were killed in combat in Vietnam. He said he is so grateful to his friends for thinking of him and naming a scholarship after him, and he’s proud the scholarship will give other young men the opportunity to obtain the same foundation he did as a teenager. “It’s a beautiful feeling,” he said. Deters said their goal is to grow the scholarship


Bill Deters said it’s hard to find a better representative of Elder High School’s class of 1966 than Henry J. Mueller III. Deters said Mueller, who goes by Hank among family and friends, is one of those genuinely nice guys who gets along with everyone. “He’s just such a fine person,” Deters said. “Hank always has a real positive outlook about life.” And considering Mueller’s story, one could understand if his disposition wasn’t so cheery. Mueller was a corporal in the U.S. Marine Corps during the Vietnam War. He was blinded as the result of mortar wounds he suffered when his squad was trying to rescue other Marines trapped on Hill 881 in Vietnam. A mortar landed at his feet and fragments hit him in both eyes, his chest, his head, his left hand and arm. His squad leader ran through the barrage of mortar and pulled Mueller to safety. The squad leader then ran back up the hill and was killed. Doctors in Vietnam didn’t think Mueller would survive, but he clung to life as he was flown to a Navy hospital in Japan and then to Bethesda Naval Hospital outside Washington, D.C. He was still in critical condition in Bethesda when he was awarded the Purple Heart. Mueller said his Catholic upbringing and his teachers at Elder, who served as

‘66 Veterans Scholarship Fund. Mueller was in town this past October and Elder recognized the scholarship being established in his name during a presentation at halftime of a football game in the Pit. “It was a real honor and a spiritual experience,” Mueller said. “I used to live across the street from the Pit when I came home from the war, so it was a real once-in-a-lifetime experience to be down on that field.” He said after the war he would often walk over to the empty stadium, sit down on the concrete grandstands and look toward the school. Even though he couldn’t see the building, he said he could remember the way it looked in his mind and he thought of all he men who graduated from Elder before him. “Whether they became police officers, firefighters, doctors, lawyers or medics, you know they all carried that Elder spirit with them whenever they went out

Holy Cross plays a slower, methodical style where they work the ball and find an open shooter. In years past, we struggled against teams that made us play slower.” This year, however, has been different for West High in more ways than one. Williams, who led the Mustangs to an 8-13 finish in 2008 and a 9-12 finish in 2009, now has West High on the cusp of its first winning season in 12 years. “We’re trying to turn the program around,” he said. Williams also wants his team to get at least one tournament win. The Mustangs open the postseason against Loveland at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 17, at Kings High School.

Seton’s Saints roll their way to Girls’ Greater Cincinnati League bowling title By Tony Meale

The Seton High School bowling team has won the Girls’ Greater Cincinnati League Scarlet division championship. It is the Saints’ first league title since 2007. Seton (18-3, 12-2) edged defending champion Mother of Mercy (20-3, 123) in the final standings. Mount Notre Dame finished (14-5, 10-4) finished third. “It means a lot,” Seton head coach Jim Robb said. The Saints solidified their league-title hopes after winning the GGCL Tournament, which was held at Brentwood Bowl Jan. 18. Seton (3,631) finished ahead of

MND (3,542) and Mercy (3,471). “Since Mercy finished third, they got two losses,” Robb said. “That ended up being the difference for us.” Seton’s only losses this year were to MND by 108 pins Dec. 8, to Fairfield by 62 Jan. 13, and by 22 to Mercy Feb. 2 in a match that was essentially meaningless, as the conference crown had already been determined. Leading Seton this year is senior Nicole Kettler (200.6), who is the only bowler in any GGCL division with an average higher than 200. “She finishes,” Robb said. “If we need three strikes in a row, she’ll give

us three strikes in a row. If we need one pin, she’ll get us one pin. She doesn’t get rattled.” Senior Pam Kettler, meanwhile, is second in the GGCL-Scarlet with a 191.5 average. The Kettler sisters have given Seton a potent one-two punch. “That’s what we were looking forward to this year,” Robb said. Other contributors include seniors Courtney Smith (171.6), Maggie Welch (171.5) and Amy Brauch (162.3), as well as junior Alyssa Merz (168.5). “Pam and Nicole have worked all summer long to get where they are, and the other girls are catching up,” Robb said.

Smith, who instance, raised her average from a 150 to a 171 in a two-week span. After dropping its match against Mercy Feb. 2, Seton closed out the regular season by downing previously unbeaten Northwest the next day. Seton prevailed 2,607-2,440 without the services of Nicole Kettler, who was inactive with a migraine. Seton expects to be at full strength for sectional play, which begins Feb. 20 at Colerain Bowl at 9 a.m. Robb said Seton hopes to advance to state for the sixth time in school history. The Saints last made it in 2005, when they won the state championship.

No. 18 Mercy (7-12) opens with a first-round game against No. 15 Kings (12-5) at 6 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 18. If victorious, Mercy advances to play No. 7 Sycamore (10-7) during the sectional semifinals at 7:30 p.m. Monday, Feb. 22.

St. X names Kepley new golf coach St. Xavier High School announces the hiring of Alex Kepley (’85) as the new head varsity golf coach. He replaces Brian Shircliff (’92), for whom he had been an assistant coach for six seasons. Shircliff stepped down as head coach after the 2009 season. He will remain on the St. X faculty as a religion teacher, a position he has held since 1997. “We’re grateful to Brian for all the work he has done with his team and all the success he’s had,” said John Sullivan, athletic director. “As good as his teams have been on the course, they’ve been that good and better

off it. He did a great job teaching not only golf, but life. “We had a number of great candidates apply and interview for the job, and I had a tough decision to make. I feel like Alex is a great fit. With his experience here as both a player and coach, he knows what we expect, and he will continue the program’s success.” Kepley inherits a team that won the 2008 Ohio Division I state championship and was state runner up in 2009. “I’ve been here for six years as an assistant and each year we’ve gone to

state. It’s been the longest streak ever for St. X to make it to the state tournament,” Kepley said. “Five of those six years we’ve been fourth or better. Based on what (Brian) has built, we don’t have any intention to make radical changes. We’re probably just looking at refinements to keep it going in this direction.” Kepley was a noted golfer himself for the Bombers in his high school days, playing JV as a freshman, followed by three years on the varsity under Hall of Fame coach Joan Whitaker. His varsity teams won three GCL titles and finished


fourth in the state tournament his sophomore year. He went to get his undergraduate degree from the University of Virginia and an MBA degree from Indiana University. He has begun playing in competitive amateur tournaments again and currently has a two handicap. Kepley is the vice president for operations at CBT, where he works for Jim Stahl (‘57), a member of St. X’s first state championship golf team.

40th anniversary

Ohio’s highest ranked nationally competitive synchronized swimming team for teens, the YMCA of Greater Cincinnati Synchrogators, honors its head coach Ginny Jasontek for her 40th anniversary leading the team.

She has coached All Americans, and even an Olympian. In the last two years she coached the YMCA Synchrogators to back-to-back gold medals at the age-group nationals. The team have been a strong force at national competition for years. In 1991 Jasontek was inducted into the Synchronized Swimming Hall of Fame. She is originally from the east coast and was a teacher with Cincinnati Public schools for 40 years.

Last week’s question

At which Winter Olympic sport do you wish you could excel? Which Winter Olympics sports do you like to watch? “I would like to excel at short track speed skating. I’ll try to watch all of the speed skating and the biathlon.” B.N. “I've always wanted to look graceful ice skating and not look like a total klutz. “I enjoy watching the luge event. A little sled, a body on it, and its flying down the track at break-neck speeds … literally.” C.A.S. “I am looking forward to the Olympics. I think it’s fun to watch all of the athletes compete and get along. “That’s something we could all learn a lesson from. I’ve never been very good at sports but I always wanted to be able to ice skate. I just

(Somehow, I was wild on wheels.) “But, the sport I love to watch is ski jumping! I think it would be neat to fly in the air … as it looks like they are doing. I’ll have to stick with the Wii games of the Winter Olympics and Wii Fit.” M.E. “None. Never been a big fan of Olympic sports. To me, for an activity to be a sport, it needs two things: 1) something to strike or throw or shoot, such as a ball or puck; 2) defense.” M.S.

Prevention best tool to deal with bed bugs Bed bugs, long believed to be eradicated in our country, have made their presence known in the past several years. Most bed bug complaints to Hamilton County Public Health are residential in nature, also mostly from renters, and it is understandable that many people are concerned when they find bed bugs in their homes. We are available to help determine the best way to get rid of the problem, but prevention is actually the best tool we can use help contain the bed bug problem. Bed bugs are a wingless insect found worldwide that feed off the blood of humans and other animals. Bed bugs, although unpleasant, are not known to transmit diseases to humans. Contrary to popular belief, presence of bed bugs is not an indicator of unsanitary living conditions. They may be found in homes, motels, movie theaters, transportation depots and restrooms. Bed bugs do not fly or jump, but they do move quickly and can hitch hike on just about anything

You can appeal your property value to the board of revision While voter approved tax levies have the major impact on property taxes, your property’s valuation is the foundation on which the rate you pay is figured. We reappraise (revalue) Hamilton County properties every three years by state law. The legal requirements of the reappraisal process mean we are always behind the market. That may be more apparent now than it was when real estate values were rising. The effective date of the appraisal currently in force is Jan. 1, 2008. If you believe the value we have for your property is inaccurate you can file a complaint with the board of revision. The board’s requirement this year is to look at your value as of Jan. 1, 2009. Based on the evidence presented, the board can raise or lower a value or leave it unchanged.

To file a complaint, call 513-946-4035 and we will send you the state’s form and instructions, rules and guidelines. Dusty Rhodes Read them Community carefully to prefor your Press guest pare hearing. Comcolumnist plaint packets may also be downloaded and printed from our Web site, Click on Departments and Board of Revision. Complaints must be RECEIVED in our office (the postmark is irrelevant under state law) by 4 p.m. on March 31 so if you are not in a position to mail in plenty of time we suggest you play it safe and

hand-deliver to room 304 of the County Administration Building, 138 E. Court St., downtown Cincinnati. At your hearing you will need to make your case for the value you seek. Remember: our office’s only goal is to get your value right. Even if we summarily reduced all Hamilton County property values, it would have a minimal effect on taxes. The millage of most levies is reset after a reappraisal. Taxing entities get the amount you voted. So, if values overall go down, millages increase. Our work in setting values is controlled by state law and overseen by the state tax commissioner. We do our utmost to get it right. We welcome your help and participation. Dusty Rhodes is the Hamilton County auditor.

Purple bracelet may help stop complaints Tim Ingram Community Press guest columnist

including furniture, clothes or luggage. In our own homes and when traveling, there are things we can look for to make sure bed bugs are not around. Some general guidelines are: • Reduce the amount of clutter to eliminate hiding places. • Inspect furniture brought into your home. • When returning from a trip, inspect your luggage and clothes for bed bugs. • At home or when staying in hotels or motels, examine the bed linens and mattress seems for the bugs, looking for dark stains around the mattress seems. • Cover mattresses and box springs with covers that zip closed. If bed bugs are found in your home, it is best to contact a licensed pest control company. More information on treating bed bugs can be found at Tim Ingram is the Health Commissioner for Hamilton County.

Is it that whiney tone of voice? Or is it the actual words of that grumbling, moaning, wailing friend who can’t seem to say anything without a lament inserted? In either case, it may have been enough to break up a friendship or wish that certain cousin would find another place to groan. Until, that is, we hear the whimpering coming from our own mouths. Then it may seem a bit more justified, particularly if there is a good reason. And usually MY reason for complaining must be good enough to burden someone else with the squawking. Enter the purple bracelets. I learned about them at Heritage Community Church. Their pastor, the Rev. Karen Helton, explained to the congregation that wearing these bright purple bracelets was not about supporting a cause. Instead, the users would be checking how often they complained and helping themselves track their progress toward becoming complaint free. I immediately wanted one for me and “selected” friends. The Web site says, “Simply put the bracelet on either wrist and every time you complain switch it

to the other wrist. The goal is to go 21 consecutive days without complaining or switching the bracelet. Millions of people around the world have used this simple tool to transform their lives and improve their health, their relationships and their careers.” I know one group of people who complain very little. As the host and coordinator of the Western Hill Job Search Satellite Group, I count among my role models over 50 people who are “in transition.” That is a euphemism for being numbered among the 10 percent to 20 percent of our current population who are unemployed or underemployed. At our weekly meetings we hear success stories that may include a hopeful interview, a great networking connection, or the completion of a LinkedIn profile. Yes, each of them has moments of discouragement. But they don’t gather to complain or whine. They use their energy to support and encourage one another. These folks give me positive perspective. Rubbing elbows with friends who keep marching forward in their job search helps me focus on my bountiful life. I recently had to pay for a new roof on my house. Instead of

switching into complaint mode Cinda after writing a Gorman sizeable check for the work Community done, I began to Press guest count my blesscolumnist ings. I was grateful for the pleasant and professional work crew that completed their jobs in a timely manner. I was glad we had saved up the money for the work that had to be done. And certainly the media images of people who no longer had a roof over their Haitian heads made me grateful to be paying a mortgage and repairs for my beautiful home instead of sleeping in an encampment of sheets and sticks. What a difference. Can you actually transform your life and improve your health, your relationships and your career in 21 complaint-free days? Maybe. More certainly, an attitude of gratitude will fill your heart to overflowing and there won’t be any room for complaints.

Selecting the right veterinarian for your pet’s needs Ever considered laser surgery for your eyes? I’ve often wondered why so many people pick the lowestpriced clinic to have this type of surgery. Really, you only have two eyes. While the cheapest may very well be the best, there are other considerations to be made. Same goes for selecting the right vet for your pet. In today’s economy, cost is a big consideration. But you need to make certain you are getting value for your hard-earned money. Here are a few things to think about when picking a veterinary hospital. • You should feel like all staff members have your pet’s best interest at heart. A veterinarian

should always perform an exam before vaccinating your pet or scheduling a surgery. A pet should not be vaccinatDiane ed if there are Zdelar-Bush underlying illpresent. Community nesses Make sure the Press guest hospital you columnist choose conducts an exam before vaccinating and during any visit. The vet should look in eyes, ears and mouth, listen to heart and lung sounds, and touch/feel the entire body.

Pain medication should never be made an option. Have you ever heard someone say a dog doesn’t feel pain like we do? How do they know? Your rule should be, if I would feel discomfort from this, so will my pet. Would you have a vasectomy or hysterectomy and go home without pain meds? • From a simple greeting and TLC when you arrive to the type of care your pet receives in the exam room, you should feel that you are getting the best care for your pet. You should leave visits from your veterinary office feeling like you and your pet had a positive experience and you know more about how to care for your pet. Are you clear on how often

and long medications are to be given, and when you should bring your pet back for follow up and routine care? Do you know what to do and who to call in case of an emergency after hours? A caring veterinary staff makes sure that your pet will get the care he needs after leaves the building. • A dog’s sense of smell is 100 more acute than ours. If you smell it, so does he! A veterinary hospital should be clean and sanitized. The waiting and exams rooms serve as a window into the rest of the hospital. If they are clean, odor-free and tidy, the remainder of the hospital should be as well. You expect your physician’s office to be clean, expect the same for your pet. • Friends and neighbors are

good sources of referrals for vets, but be sure you ask those who have the same level of commitment to their pet as you do. Many veterinary hospitals have web sites that can be visited prior to an in-person visit. The American Animal Hospital Association is an inspection and certification program that veterinary facilities submit to voluntarily. If an animal hospital is accredited by AAHA, it means that they meet standards of excellence in all the areas of medicine in which they practice. To learn about AAHA and get a list of area AAHA-certified hospitals, visit Diane Zdelar-Bush is a registered veterinary technician at Glenway Animal Hospital.

We’re all in this together by ourselves There are two states of aloneness. They are the physical state of being alone (solitude) and the emotional state of being alone (loneliness). Solitude is usually enjoyable and profitable. For those who are comfortable with themselves it’s a pleasant time to relax, reflect, recall emotions, read and enjoy nature. It’s an oasis in the desert of chatter and busyness. In periods of solitude we enjoy being with ourselves and can even travel inside via insight. Solitude helps us build a healthy life, refuels us to better walk in the world, and creates a balance. “If you can’t stand solitude, maybe you bore others, too,” notes an old adage. Loneliness, on the other hand, we perceive solely as a negative – though it needn’t be. If we don’t

know our inner self very well, loneliness can even frighten us. We fear the many imagined or real demons that live within us. Loneliness also tempts us to conclude that we are and will always be unloved, unconnected and rejected for who we are. Loneliness deceives us into thinking we are the only ones so afflicted. We fail to realize that everyone is lonely at times, or for long times. Every human is a one-of-akind person, and that’s both a burden and a glory. In his book on “Loneliness,” Dr. Clark Moustakis writes, “Efforts to overcome or escape the existential experience of loneliness can result in self-alienation. When man is removed from a fundamental truth of life, when he successfully evades and denies the terrible loneliness of individual

existence, he shuts himself off from the one significant avenue of his own growth.” What? Loneliness can help us grow? He’s trying to tell us that when we are thrown back on our own resources, then this is the time to find out who we are, of what we are made, and to struggle to generate the most wholesome person we can be. The key to ease the pain of loneliness is to discover how to relate to others. Yet, this can be complex. That’s because it requires honest communication of thoughts and emotions along with respect for each other as we really are, not as we pretend to be. Of all people who have ever lived, we have more opportunities today of reaching out to others than ever before. The Internet permits us to exchange information, pictures

and ideas with people around the globe. We can reach out to each other on social Web sites like MySpace, Facebook, Twitter and others. When this is done in a human and moral way, our opportunities for finding people with whom to relate increases tremendously. Of course, just as a knife can be used for good or evil – by a surgeon to heal or a criminal to rob or rape – so can our technology help us or hurt us. Technology can become a barrier, not a pathway, to friendship and relating when used by evilminded and manipulative people. It can likewise be an obstacle to relating when almost all of our attempts at friendship are over the Internet. One young man claimed he had many friends. But it turns out he stayed in his apartment com-

municating (?) with various Internet friends. Face-to-face conversation with individuals and groups didn’t exist. S o m e Father Lou thoughtful soliGuntzelman tude might help him realize the Perspectives real loneliness of his computer-life. “Even if you are a relatively happy person who relates easily to others and who has many close friends, you are probably still lonely at times,” writes author Ronald Rolheiser.

Minimum auto insurance might not be enough You’re involved in an automobile accident, the other driver is cited, and you rest easy when you hear he has insurance coverage. But, if that driver only has the state minimum auto coverage you could be in for a real shock. Although auto insurance is required in all 50 states, as you’ll see, those who only carry the state minimum can be doing themselves – and others – a great disservice. Mary Hedrick of New Richmond was hit by a driver who only carried that minimum insurance. “Some lady came flying

sive damage to the first vehicle hit. Meanwhile, Hedrick’s medical bills come to about $10,000, while the other driver hit has even more injuries. Fortunately, Hedrick’s own medical insurance has been able to pay some of her medical bills, but as far as her now-inoperable car is concerned, that’s a different story. “The other lady that was hit, her car was newer than mine so they said she’s going to get the bulk of the money. I’m like, ‘How’s that fair?’ ” Hedrick said. The woman who caused the accident was cited by

across the median, hit another lady and she spun around and I proceeded to hit that lady,” Hedrick said. Hedrick, her son, and the other woman hit were all injured. The women were taken to the hospital. Hedrick called the insurance company of the woman who caused the accident. “They said, ‘Well, we have to get all the information and then we’ll go from there. She only has $7,500 worth of insurance,’ ” said Hedrick. Unfortunately, it’s going to cost more than $6,000 to repair just Hedrick’s car. There is even more exten-

police. “I was so mad that I called her and talked to her. She doesn’t have anything. She says she’s filing for disability,” Hedrick said. ‘I said, ‘Well, that’s not my fault. I feel for you, but that’s not my fault. You’ve really done a disservice to me and the other lady that you hit,’ ” she said. Clearly, Ohio minimum insurance does very little to cover you in a crash. The $7,500 minimum property damage insurance often won’t even cover one car’s damage, let alone two. And the $12,500 medical coverage per person certainly won’t be enough if

someone is severely injured. So, if you have that insurance and are found to be at fault in an accident, you could be held personally liable once that insurance is exhausted. Only four other states in the nation require minimum insurance less than Ohio. Kentucky and Indiana both require double the amount of bodily injury coverage and $10,000 for property damage. The Insurance Information Institute recommends you carry at least $100,000 bodily injury protection per person and $300,000 per accident. It’s estimated one in six

drivers doesn’t have adequate auto insurance, Howard Ain so how can you Hey Howard! protect yourself? Buy uninsured and underinsured coverage. It costs very little and will protect you should your injuries, or damage to your vehicle, not be fully covered by the other driver’s insurance.

Goetta while the getting’s good Talk about a goetta-making day: This is it. We have almost 10 inches of snow on the ground and it’s still falling. Frank, my husband, is waiting to plow the lane after the snow s t o p s . When I went out to put bird feed on Rita the winHeikenfeld d o w and Rita’s kitchen ledges to feed the chickens, the snow had drifted almost up to my knees. The herb garden is snuggled under a thick blanket of snow. When I came in, I pulled off boots, hat and gloves and sat on the woodstove’s hearth until I got toasty warm.

Rita’s goetta

Before I give you a recipe, I need to talk a bit about goetta. Everyone who makes it has their own “special” recipe and way to cook it. Good friend Don Deimling makes a delicious version and he cooks his in one of those free-standing electric roasters. I cook mine on top of the stove, while others use the oven or crockpot. First, you need to use pin-head/steel cut oats for most recipes, mine included.

Dorsel pinhead oats are what I use. I find them at Kroger and most grocery stores should carry them. (Call 1-800626-0702 for a list of retailers near you). My German mother-inlaw, Clara, always made goetta in the fall from their own pigs. They used a bunch of different parts of the pig. But after they moved from the farm, Clara started using pork shoulder, with the bone in. Her recipe was simple, much like my sisterin-law, Claire makes today. My adaptation is a bit more involved, and so far has been a hit. The key here is to get fresh pork shoulder, sometimes called pork butt, from the butt of the shoulder with a nice layer of fat on it. Also, you really need to cook this on the stove a long time. When a spoon stands up straight in the mixture, it’s ready to pour in the pans. 4 pounds pork shoulder 1 pound hot or regular sausage 10 cups water 3 generous cups finely chopped onions 1 teaspoon celery salt plus 4 ribs celery, chopped with leaves OR 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon celery salt 1 tablespoon salt 3 large bay leaves Pepper to taste 1 teaspoon poultry sea-


Spoon standing straight up in goetta; cooked enough to pour into pans soning 1 teaspoon dried granulated garlic 3 cups pinhead oats Cut meat into several large pieces. Put in large, heavy bottomed pot with everything but pinhead oats. Bring to a boil and lower to simmer. Cook, uncovered and stirring occasionally, for at least two hours or until meat falls apart. Strain, and when meat is cool enough to handle, chop finely. Set meat and veggies aside and pour liquid back into pot. Add oatmeal. Bring to boil and lower to simmer. Cook, uncovered, stirring often, for one hour. Mixture will be thick. Add chopped meat and veggies back into pot. Simmer for another hour and half to two hours. You’ll know it’s cooked long enough when a long handled spoon stands straight up on its own without falling over. Don’t worry if it looks too thick. It has to be extremely thick to set up.

Goetta trivia


Rita’s fried goetta.

Line three to four loaf pans with foil and spray foil. Pour goetta in and let cool to room temperature before putting in fridge to cool overnight. I like to leave mine uncovered so a nice crust develops and it becomes easier to slice and fry. Then, you can keep it up to two weeks in the fridge, covered, or freeze for several months. To serve, slice and fry in bacon fat with bacon alongside. Or however you want.

Clara Heikenfeld’s goetta

Clara never measured, like many good cooks. Here’s as close as I can get to her recipe. 2-3 pounds pork shoulder with bone in 8 cups water 3 cups chopped onions 2 large bay leaves 1 tablespoon salt 1-2 teaspoons pepper 3 cups pinhead oats Follow instructions above.

For those of you who aren’t familiar with it, goetta has Germanic origins, but most people who live in Germany have never heard of it. Inge, my daughter-inlaw who was born and raised in Germany, said she didn’t have a clue as to what goetta was until she moved to Cincinnati. Yes, it’s definitely a Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky “thing.” A possibility about the name is that it comes from the German word “gote” or “gotte” which means peeled grain. The word became Americanized to mean “goetta,” since the ingredient you cannot do without when making it is pinhead oats. I make my mother-inlaw’s recipe using pork shoulder but have to admit, I still cannot replicate that elusive, absolutely addictive, flavor of Glier’s goetta.

Easy-to-care-for plants good for indoor environment Just about now, you may be saying to yourself that you’ve had enough of winter and need something to get you out of the winter blues. Besides a trip to the Caribbean, let me suggest this: Add a few indoor plants to your décor! For years now research continues to show us that having both flowering and tropical plants around us indoors can do so much for our well being. They can perk up our moods, help us to study better, reduce fatigue, lower stress, bring

us positive vibes, give us something to take care of, make us feel good, and in m a n y Ron Wilson cases can In the garden a c t u a l l y help heal us. Yes, studies have shown that many patients having flowers or plants in their rooms have a better recovery. On the other hand, flowers and foliage plants

can also bring comfort to those in mourning. To top all of this off, having foliage plants indoors helps reduce indoor air pollution so we can breathe better! Studies at NASA have shown us that having two medium sized foliage plants every 100 square feet (or so) is enough to help remove indoor air pollutants such as benzene, formaldehyde and many others. And of course, replaces those pollutants with good old oxygen. So, now you’re saying,

“OK, sounds good, but I can’t grow anything indoors.” Well, believe it or not, some of the best air purifiers, are also so of the easiest plants to grow indoors. Dieffenbachia, African violets, dracaena, ficus, sansevieria, pothos and philodendron, spider plants, spathiphyllum, rubber plant and palms are all at the top of the list for good air purifiers as well as easy to grow indoor plants. Don’t forget cast iron plant, Christmas cactus, lucky bamboo, Chinese

evergreen and jade plants are easy to care for plants as well. And of course, my favorite easiest to care for indoor plant, zamioculcus zamiilfolia, or commonly known as the “ZZ Plant.” At the beginning I mentioned a trip to the Caribbean. Well, if you want to stay local, just hop in the car and head to the Krohn Conservatory! As soon as you walk indoors, you will start to smile, you’ll take a deep breath (and enjoy it), and then you’ll enjoy a truly “feel good winter experience” as you stroll through

the tropical jungles (and desert), located right here in our own backyard. OK, in Eden Park. Indoor plant care note: When watering your indoor plants, use luke-warm to warm water. Over time, using cold water can actually have detrimental effects on the root systems and growth rates of your potted plants. Ron Wilson is marketing manager for Natorp’s Inc. Garden Stores and is the garden expert for 55KRC-AM and Local 12. Reach him at

Students delivered the books to the library at the Lighthouse Crisis Center for the organization’s Help Me Grow program. “We can help others improve their life in so many areas just by promoting the skill and joy of reading,” said Seton English teacher Gary Collins, who is the adviser for the honor society. “Our students at Seton

value the importance and the experiences they have with books. They wanted to share this positive experience with others.”

TRUE... there is some unhappiness that can never be cast aside, but some of it can... TRUE... we need constantly to remind ourselves that we can be about as happy as we make up our minds to be... TRUE.. Circumstances play a part in our lives - but isn’t it also true that will power and faith play an important part?... TRUE ... it is never too late to change. This has become a truth so often repeated that it is a truism. Couldn’t it be said that happiness can be ours when we are supported by this hope and confidence?... Marilyn Holt

Through the years, we all have made mistakes. We all have had certain habits, moods, fears and feelings of guilt which have kept us restless and unhappy at certain times. Yet it is possible to turn from the inadequate and unhappy things of life and begin living a new life. This can be done by deciding we are through with unhappiness... we are going to cast unhappiness behind us...
