Abraham Lincoln was really tall and had really big feet, while George Washington was an important military general. Those were just a few of the historical tidbits being dispensed at C.O. Harrison Elementary School during its Presidents Day celebration Feb. 18. The school’s Character Team, made up of eight teachers, developed the program that music teachers Ruth Schoenhoeft and Joe Shea helped produce. “We took the 160 third-graders and divided them into teams of five,” Schoenhoeft said. “There will be one Lincoln and a Washington on each team, plus three flag bearers going to each classroom talking briefly about the two presidents.

Harrison Elementary School third-graders Natalie Gunther, left, and Lily Lang put on their Abraham Lincoln and George Washington costumes while music teachers Joe Shea and Ruth Schoenhoeft prepare for the school’s morning musical celebration of Presidents Day. “Each student also will be given a book marker with information on each side about each man.” Siblings Evelyn, Molly, and Gus Luegering started the day by singing “God Bless America” before the morning announcements. “I’m a little nervous,” Molly, a fourth-grader said. Her sister, a kindergartner, reassured her. “We’re really good, so it’s OK,” Evelyn said. Getting their respective costumes on to take the presidential message classroom to classroom, Natalie Gunther and Lily Lang said they, too, were just a tad nervous, but prepared with the facts to share. “Abraham Lincoln was our 16th president and was pretty tall,” Gunther said, while Lang helped her adjust her cardboard beard.

Delhi Township residents soon will have a listing of important township numbers as close as their frig. The township is going to have magnets, listing non-emergency and office numbers for township offices, delivered in an upcoming issue of The Delhi Press. A total of 11,000 magnets have been made and are being paid for by six township businesses, all listed at the bottom of the magnet. “We estimate there are 10,000 households in the township and The Delhi Press delivers to an estimated 9,000,” said township Administrator Gary Schroeder. “Those who don’t get a magnet can stop by the township administration building or the police department.” Police Chief James Howarth is especially happy with the magnet concept, hoping, he said, it will give people the numbers they need in cases of non-emergencies phone calls. “Every time someone calls 911, it costs us $17.05,” he said. “If it’s a true emergency, of course we want them to call 911, but for situations where it’s not an emergency, we hope residents will call the office number.” Howarth said that the police department $18.00




Delhi Township residents soon will be receiving magnets like this to put on the fridge.


Delhi Township Police Chief James Howarth and township Administrator Gary Schroeder check the telephone listings appearing on a magnet about to be distributed to residents. answers calls 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. weekdays and from noon to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. The weekend calls have been answered by volunteers from the township’s Citizens Police Association. “The association has been a big help to us since they were trained and have started volunteering to answer phones,” Howarth said. $19.80

“He was really smart even though he only went to school for one year.” Lincoln’s shoe size also was a

bit of shock to some students. A height chart and outline of Lincoln’s reported 14-size shoe were tacked up in a hallway for students to compare their own dimensions. “He had really big feet,” said Alexis Kroll, a third-grader, whose own feet barely made a dent by comparison and was surprised that Lincoln was almost twice her height. Third-grader teacher Patty Neyer said the classroom presentations was more about learning the art of public speaking than relaying historical data. “This is their first public speaking experience and we wanted to help students feel comfortable speaking in front of a crowd, while discussing information about Lincoln and Washington,” Neyer said. Schoenhoeft and Shea said they were planning to take their historical program on the road performing for folks at the Delhi Township Senior Center Feb. 23.

“Plus, public awareness has helped us reduce the number of calls going to the Hamilton County Communications Center that aren’t true emergencies.” When no one is at the police station to answer the phones, Howarth said an answering

machine is on duty. “A supervisor checks messages about every 30 minutes and will call residents back as soon as possible,” he said. Along with numbers for the various township departments, the magnets have the 395DELHI community and emergency number. “We update the message daily,” Schroeder said, “and it provides not only community events, but also information like road closures, meeting cancellations and weather-related issues.” Buckeye Land Title, Robben Florists, Brose Tours, LaRosa’s, Dick Scott Plumbing and Duebber Automotive paid for the magnets.

Allen marks 50 years at the organ By Kurt Backscheider

David Allen said it doesn’t feel as though he’s been serving St. William parish for 50 years. Time truly does fly when you are doing what you love. Allen, who is the music director at St. William, celebrated his 50th anniversary at the parish on Thursday, Feb. 17. “It has never felt like work to me,” he said. “I love being a part of St. William; the parish community inspires me everyday. “I really can’t believe it has been 50 years, it sure doesn’t feel like it,” he said. Two celebrations took place to mark the milestone. Students at St. William celebrated Dave Allen Day on Feb. 17. Students, many of whom wore ties to school in honor of their music teacher, gathered for an all school Mass and then moved the festivities to the gymnasium for an assembly. The St. William children’s choir sang, and faculty members and students presented Allen with a few gifts. Catie Blum, principal of St. William School, said students took part in several out-of-uniform days to raise money to give to Allen so he and his wife, Carol, who was a teacher at St. William, could take a vacation. “He so rarely takes a vacation,” Blum said.

“He’s such a quiet, humble and giving man. He’s awesome.” The second celebration took place the following evening, Friday, Feb. 18. More than 550 people were scheduled to attend the sold-out celebration. The community event began with former parishioner and Broadway star Robert Dusold performing at a Mass. The St. William Choir and Cincinnati Metropolitan Orchestra, which Allen also conducts, performed at the Mass as well. Following Mass, a reception took place at The Farm, where Dusold, the Tommy and Hub Band and other professional and regional performers who have been taught by Allen paid him a musical tribute. The Rev. Andrew Umberg, pastor of St. William, said Allen’s charisma, hard work, talents and deep faith have positively affected every aspect of parish life at St. William. “He is a true blessing to our parish family,” Umberg said. “I am sure it is a rarity in these days, and in the history of the Church, to have a music director serve the same parish for 50 years. And when it turns out he is an all-round great guy, it is a miracle.” As a concert pianist major at University of Cincinnati’s College Conservative of Music, Allen began playing the organ for various Catholic churches as

Looking on are the Rev. Andrew Umberg, St. William pastor; and Kathy Ciarla, one of Allen’s daughters. a way to earn money. In 1961, St. William pastor, Monsignor Robert Sherry, offered Allen the job as music director, four months before he graduated from college. The rest is history. Frank Trentman, a St. William parishioner who has been a member of the adult choir for more than 50 years, said as long as Allen keeps directing the choir, he will keep singing. “He is one in a million,” Trentman said. In addition to his work at St. William and with the

Cincinnati Metropolitan Orchestra, Allen is also chairman of the music department at Elder High School and directs the Seton-Elder Performing Arts Series, a program he founded 41 years ago. At the school assembly Feb. 17, Allen thanked all his colleagues and the students, and said it’s a pleasure to work with so many people who are dedicated to serving the parish and its children. “This is a great celebration,” he said. “Thank you all so very much.”

The Western Wildlife Corridor is thinking about the past and planning for the future with two upcoming community events. On Tuesday, March 1, there will be a membership meeting starting at 7 p.m. at EarthConnection, 370 Neeb Road, adjacent the College of Mount St. Joseph. Tim Sisson, corridor president, will update folks on the recent purchase of several acres called Sisters’ Hill. Sisson said what had been 25 separate plots of property at the dead end of Delhi Road and adjacent the Mount will be incorporated into land the corridor already owned.

“It will allow us to have one, continuous, large nature preserve now, instead of fragmented pieces,” Sisson said. Keeping to the topic of that particular area of Delhi Township and beyond, Peg Schmidt will present a program on wagon roads and foot trails on township hillsides. Schmidt is the museum coordinator for the Delhi Historical Society. Her program includes maps and a digital presentation about the old roads and the people who lived along them. Apparently thinking spring, the corridor has its annual Wildflower Festival Friday, April 1. The third annual festival is a major

Covedale’s new season features classic shows The Covedale Center for the Performing Arts, 4990 Glenway Avenue, will expand its Subscription Series from the current three weeks to four weeks for each show. The 2011 – 2012 shows will run for 16 performances each – except for the holiday special – “White Christmas,” which is already slated for 18 performances to accommodate demand. “The 2010-2011 season is running close to 90 per-

cent of capacity” said Tim Perrino, Covedale artistic director. “There are nights where we could only offer new subscribers seats in the last two rows for next year’s series. We have to expand performances just to offer new season patrons the best seats.” The new series features one madhouse comedy, a tribute to America’s most beloved songwriter, Irving Berlin’s holiday favorite, a taut military drama, some

tough southern belles and the most technicolor stage musical ever. Cincinnati Federal Savings is back as the season sponsor. “This is the biggest and most exciting development since we opened this theater in 2002,” said Perrino. “We’ll now feature a full theater season and enough shows and seats for our expanding patron base.” Show titles, dates and descriptions are:

“Noises Off “Sept. 1 – 25. Called the funniest farce ever written, “Noises Off” presents a manic menagerie of itinerant actors rehearsing a flop called “Nothing’s On.” Doors slamming, onstage, offstage and backstage intrigue, and an errant herring all figure in the plot of this hilarious and classically comic play. “I Love A Piano” Oct. 13 – Nov. 6. This is a celebration of the music and lyrics of Irving Berlin. It follows


the journey of a piano as it moves in and out of American lives from the turn of the century to the present. Along the way, the story comes to vibrant life with over 60 of Irving Berlin’s most beloved songs, including classics such as “Blue Skies,” “There’s No Business Like Show Business,” “Puttin’ on the Ritz,” “Cheek to Cheek,” “Always,” “How Deep is the Ocean,” “Anything You Can Do,” “God Bless America,” and, of course, “I Love a Piano.” “White Christmas” Dec. 1 – 23. Based on the film, this musical adaptation features 17 Irving Berlin songs and a book by David Ives and Paul Blake. Veterans Bob Wallace and Phil Davis have a successful song-anddance act after World War II. With romance in mind, the two follow a duo of beautiful singing sisters en route to their Christmas show at a Vermont lodge, which just happens to be owned by Bob and Phil’s former army commander. The score features well-known standards including “Blue Skies,” “Happy,” “Snow” and the perennial favorite, “White Christmas.” “Caine Mutiny Court Martial” Jan. 26 – Feb. 19, 2012. The Pulitzer Prizewinning novel about a Navy court martial in World War II has been adapted by the author into a suspenseful evening of theater. A young lieutenant has relieved his captain of command in the midst of a typhoon on the grounds that the captain, Queeg, is a psychopath in crisis and would have sent the ship and its crew to their destruction. Naval tradition is against the lieutenant, but testimony eventually reveals a devastating picture of Queeg’s mental disintegration. “Steel Magnolias” March 8 – April 1, 2012. Welcome to Truvy’s beauty salon in Chinquapin, La., where all the ladies who are “any-

body” come to have their hair done. Helped by her eager new assistant, Annelle, the outspoken, wise-cracking Truvy dispenses shampoo and free advice to the town’s rich curmudgeon, Ouiser, an eccentric millionaire; Miss Clairee, who has a raging sweet tooth; and the local social leader, M’Lynn, whose daughter, Shelby is about to marry a “good ole boy.” Filled with hilarious repartee and not a few revealing verbal collisions, the play invokes knowing laughter and certain tears when the spunky Shelby risks her life for a child of her own. The realization of mortality affects the others, but also draws on the underlying strength – and love – in these uniquely American women. “Joseph and The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat” April 19 – May 13. The most popular musical of all time. The Biblical, all-sung saga of Joseph and his coat of many colors comes to vibrant life in this delightful parable. Joseph, his father’s favorite son, is a boy blessed with prophetic dreams. When he is sold into slavery by his jealous brothers and taken to Egypt, Joseph endures a series of adventures in which his spirit and humanity are continually challenged. Set to one of the greatest scores in musical theater, “Joseph” is a cornucopia of pop styles, from country-western and calypso to bubble-gum and 1950s rock ‘n’ roll. Great songs include “One More Angel in Heaven”, “Close Every Door”, “Any Dream Will Do” and “Go, Go, Go Joseph.” Subscriptions are $108 for the six-show series. Single tickets are $20 for student/seniors; $23 for adults. Tickets available at the box office, 4990 Glenway Ave.; by phone at 513-2416550; and online at w w w. c i n c i n n a t i l a n d

Oak Hills High School

Students are taking a futuristic approach to learning with VREP – the Virtual Reality Educational Pathfinders Initiative. Over two days in January, students participated in a projectbased learning activity that provided threedimensional virtual reality eduRitter cation. The event, at Univer-

sity of Cincinnati’s Tangeman Center, was for schools in Hamilton County that received the Innovations in STEM: Teaching and Learning Grant. As a result of the funding, OHHS received software training, curriculum materials, and the hardware and software supplies needed to create and display virtual reality projects. At Oak Hills, students have formed a team called the Oak Hills Student Development Group to expand their learning. The group will create 3-D virtual reality projects for as many subject areas as possible before the end of the school year.

Participating in VREP were sophomores Morgan Hetzel, Danny Kurtz, Zack Leftenant, Jessica Wieman and Emma Wilhelmus, juniors Michael Emerick, Anthony Heim, Emily Marsala and Nathan Meyer, and seniors Andrew Butler, Derek Mills, Hayes Ryland, Jason Seal and Zach Tenhundfeld. The Oak Hills design department teachers and facilitators of the school’s VREP program are Jerry Dean and Francine Gibson.

Huismann: Retirement not in immediate future

With only one senior starter, Mary Jo Huismann knew this season could be a long one. But the Mother of Mercy High School basketball coach, in her 39th year at the helm, saw strides from a team learning to play at the varsity level. On the surface, the Bobcats, which finished the regular season 7-14, had an up-and-down – mostly down – year. They started 2-2, lost four of five, won two, lost four of five, won one and then ended the regular season with four straight setbacks. As the year wore on, however, the losses became more competitive. The Bobcats’ average margin of


Mercy junior Anna Maffey shoots a free throw against Mount Healthy. She finished with seven points.

Athletes of the week

On Wednesday, Feb 16, Oak Hills High School senior Nicole Bishop was named Academic Team’s GMC Player of the Year and member of the GMC’s First Team. This honor of Player of the Year is decided by the 10 GMC coaches voting on who they felt was the strongest player in the conference. This year, Bishop showcased her talents by being one of the most knowledgeable students in the areas of Literature, Math, Physical and Life Sciences, World History, American History, Government, and Fine Arts in addition to being one of the quickest buzzers in the lightning round. As a four-year varsity member, Bishop was an invaluable member of the GMC Tournament Champion Team of 2010 and led Oak Hills to a fourth-place finish in the conference and tied for third in this year’s tournament. • On Wednesday, Feb 16, Senior Christian Vandewalle was selected to the Academic Team’s GMC Second Team. T h e s e students are re c o g n i z e d for their hard Vandewalle work and contributions and again are voted in by the GMC coaches. Vandewalle was one of the anchors of this year’s team with his expertise in the fields of science and math. He was the alphabet round leader who truly had to multitask under pressure. As a second year varsity member, Vandewalle was also part of last year’s GMC Tournament champion team and steady contributor to this year’s success. Vandewalle will attend Purdue University.

Bobcats make strides in losing season

The week at Oak Hills

• The St. Xavier boys basketball team beat Bishop Oak Hills 5243, Feb. 15. St. X’s top-scorer was Sean Duggan with 16 points. Oak Hills was led by Cory Burgin with 16 points.



Mother of Mercy sophomore guard Kelley Wiegman (facing) encourages teammates Rebecca Tumlin (24), Allie Hart (23), Anna Maffey (21) and Emily Budde during the second half of Division I sectional play against Mount Healthy Feb. 16. Mercy, which trailed 23-14 at halftime, lost 64-35 to finish the season 7-15 (2-8). Wiegman had a team-high 14 points. defeat in their first six losses was a hearty 23.2 points; in their last eight losses, it was 12.3. “I think the young kids really improved and gained a lot of experience,” Huismann said. “They have to keep learning how to be competitive.” The Bobcats hoped to string together a couple playoff upsets, but they ran into a bigger, more experienced Mount Healthy squad during Division I sectional play Feb. 16 at Harrison. Fighting Owls senior center Jonessa Moore scored 26 points, and Mercy, which trailed 23-14 at halftime, fell 64-35.

The Bobcats finish 7-15. Mercy sophomore Kelley Wiegman, as she did 15 times during the regular season, led the Bobcats in scoring; she netted 14. “She was huge this year,” Huismann said. “Some of her stats last year were better, but this year she was a better player.” Last season, Wiegman averaged 8.6 points and 4.0 assists and was the lone freshman in any division of the Girls’ Greater Cincinnati League to earn first-team, all-league honors. As a sophomore, her scoring average spiked to 12.1 points while her assists dipped to 2.6. She

scored a career-high 27 points in a 58-51 win over Seton Dec. 9. “I think she thought she had to do it all at times,” Huismann said. “She just has to play within herself, and we’ve got to get the other kids up to her level, which I think we will.” Mercy’s top underclassmen include freshmen Emily Budde and Haley Dannemiller, as well as sophomore Rebecca Tumlin. Budde was third on the team in points (5.5) and second in assists (1.5) and three-point shooting (27.5). She scored six points in the loss to Mount Healthy. “She’s going to be great,”

Mary Jo Huismann stepped down as athletic director earlier this month but will remain head basketball coach of the Bobcats. The 2011-12 season will be Huismann’s 40th year roaming Mercy’s sidelines. “I really don’t have any idea when I’ll retire,” Huismann said. “With the group we have coming up, why would you? “I think I’ll know when it’s time,” she continued. “I knew when it was time to step down as AD, but I still enjoy coaching. I still get fired up. I can yell at officials with the best of them.” Huismann said. Juniors Corrine Bachman and Anna Maffey also saw significant action this season, as did senior and cocaptain Allie Hart, who averaged nearly six points per game. “She had great attitude and spirit and always tried to encourage the girls,” Huismann said. “She showed a lot of leadership.” Luckily for Mercy, the future appears bright. The Bobcats return nine of their top 10 scorers and have upwards of 20 freshmen in the program. “I’m really excited about the prospect of next year,” Huismann said. “We haven’t matured as much as I’ve liked, but we will.”

Delhi athlete to swim in college Seven St. Ursula Academy seniors participated in a National Letter of Intent signing ceremony Feb. 3, including Delhi resident Annie Currin. Currin, daughter of Tim and Jan Currin, has signed to swim next year for the University of Findlay. Annie’s top events are the 50 freestyle, 100 freestyle, and 100 breaststroke on SUA’s swimming and diving team. She also swims and trains with the Cincinnati Marlins. She has been named GGCL champion, and to the GGCL first team and the second team. She also received All-State recognition. She set a Cincinnati Marlins Team record in the 50 Breaststroke in the 9-10 age group and has finished as state champion in several events in USA swimming meets over the years. Currin is also active with several St. Ursula student organizations. She is a member of the Life Club, Bethany House Services, ISSE Club, and Student Outreach Services. She is a Girls Athletic Association Board

member, a Eucharistic minister, and a volunteer at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center. She spent three years involved in the Dawg Squad and the Boys and Girls Club of Cincinnati. Her SUA swim coach, Ann Gartner has this to say about her, “Annie has been a big contributor to the success of Saint Ursula swimming since her freshman year. She has consistently been one of our most versatile athletes, scoring points for our team in several different events. She also has been one of our leaders in her work ethic and results. She inspires her teammates, as evidenced by her being elected as a tri-captain this season. Her enthusiasm for St. Ursula swimming and her leadership will be sorely missed by the coaches and her SUA teammates next season.” Mike Wenert, Currin’s Marlins coach, said “Annie is a tremendous talent and will flourish at the collegiate level. She has all of the tools to be a successful college swimmer.”

Last week’s question

What do you think of the plans for the new Horseshoe Casino at Broadway Commons, and do you think you will patronize the casino? Why or why not? “It’s exciting. It is right on trend with making downtown Cincinnati an inviting hub of activity. I’ll probably be there at least once or twice a year. You know what they say, ‘You only gamble what you can afford to lose.’” C.A.S. “I am excited to see a project of this magnitude come to Cincinnati. Yes, we will patronize the casino, at least until we find out how their payouts, service, customer comps, machine choices, etc. ‘stack up’ with Hollywood. We consider the casino to be a win-win situation for everybody.” B.N. “Haven’t we heard this phrase before: ‘It will bring in so much new revenue’ only later to hear, ‘our projections were wrong.’ As to the construction and the like I have found very few people who can tell you what the outsides of the casinos in Indiana look like, all they are concerned with is how fast they can get to one of the machines. I may visit once and put a few pennies in a slot

The casino will provide jobs and hopefully benefit the community in some financial ways-bringing in business. “On the other hand, it will make it easier for those living here with gambling problems to feed any possible addiction. Plus, it may cause an increase in overall gambling addiction problems and the resulting consequences for a lot of people and their families. “For those who can go and use it as a form of entertainment and who can afford it-it’s great. But, what about those who lose a lot of needed money. That can breed desperation. “Will it cause an increase in crime? Personally, I should never step into a casino given my experience with others; but I know I will go and see it out of curiosity if nothing else.” G.H.

DAA has strong tradition of community 63 years! In some cases families are on their third generation of community youth playing for the Delhi Athletic Association. Started in 1948, the Delhi Athletic Association (DAA) has been serving the youth of Delhi Township for over 63 years. Over this time DAA has grown to one of the largest community youth sporting associations in the area. Started primarily as a baseball organization in 1948 to serve the growing youth of Delhi Township, it now serves young athletes within the entire Oak Hills Local School District and in certain opportunities allows residents from outside the Oak Hills boundaries to play sports. For several years now, DAA has grown to offer not only baseball but also offers girls fast pitch softball, spring and fall soccer for girls and boys, football and cheerleading. In the early years the Delhi Athletic Association served families living within the township boundaries consisting of kids attending any and all schools in the area. As the private schools developed their own sports programs most of the youth attending those schools began playing with their school teams. So naturally the Delhi Athletic Association has evolved into a

program serving mostly students and youth of the public schools. While our bylaws say we accept any family residing in the Oak Hills Don Jasper Local School our Community District, membership is Press guest open to families columnist and youth attending any school, private, public or homeschooled. The natural progression of these events has evolved DAA into serving primarily those youth attending Oak Hills public schools. Approximately 95 percent of our membership attends one of the Oak Hills public schools. We have developed into a feeder program for Oak Hills High School athletics, a role DAA has embraced. We have a very strong relationship with the Oak Hills athletic departments, we work together to prepare our youth for the next level of student-athletes. DAA has a lot of special things happening: our football program is working with Oak Hills’ Coach Kurry Cummins; cheerleading is producing champions; soccer now has trainers; baseball and softball

Be SMART with your resolutions this year Those darn New Year’s resolutions. What happened to them? In the Jan. 12, “Baby Blues” comic strip the mommy is seen in profile at her computer. The caption balloons read, “Click! (Highlight) Click! (Delete)” in seven repeated sequences before daddy asks, “Editing the resolutions?” She responds, “This feels so much better than keeping them!” That same day the Western Hills Press Ch@troom readers responded to the questions, “Have you ever made a New Year’s resolution that you actually kept? What was it? How did you accomplish it?” The answers included two successes at quitting smoking and another at giving up carbonated drinks. Another succeeded at giving

up haggis and lutefisk! The other respondents gave up making resolutions at all. The successful incentives included an Cinda insurance disGorman count and being examCommunity aplebetter for a daughPress guest ter. columnist A New Year’s resolution is just another name for a goal but the calendar or peer pressure gives people a wake-up call to try again at the annual ritual of self-improvement. So which goals work for you? Were they written on paper? Did you keep them a secret or share

them? Were they positive or negative? Did they maximize your strengths or just point out your weaknesses? Or were they even SMART? SMART? The most successful goals we set and actually achieve are the ones that are Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic and Time Limited. That is standard coachspeak and deserves elaboration. Specific means knowing what you want the outcome to look like. Someone can imagine their healthy lungs when they no longer smoke. Saving $20 a week in a honeymoon fund is measurable but other goals may be more difficult to quantify. “We will spend one date night out every two weeks without our children” is measurable.

The A can be for Achievable or Attainable. “I will qualify for the Olympic volleyball team” could be attainable for one person from Western Hills but not for me. There are other goals I CAN achieve. R can be for Relevant or Realistic. Why is this important for me? Is this even Realistic given my time, talents and finances? Time specific suggests the start and finish date can be written on the calendar. SMART goals make the difference. Vague resolutions produce vague or non-existent results. Goals that are positive work better than negative goals. The only time I achieved a weight loss goal was when I didn’t use the word loss. “I will be six pounds lighter by Labor Day” gave me a positive

vision of what I would feel and look like by that date. And it worked. An accountability partner helps, too. And your spouse or significant other is not the best candidate. Nor should the partner be expected to check on the goal-setter. As in AA sponsorship, it is up to the person who is trying to change to check in with the sponsor and not turn the sponsor into a nag. It is never too late in the year to set a SMART goal. You can start any time … even after Valentine’s Day!

Something by the name of Oscar is looking for you voice and expression that can move the minds, hearts and imaginations of millions of people. Though we, too, have voices and expressive abilities, inhibitions and fear restrain the rest of us from acting as well as they. My point is that acting and pretending are not nearly as significant as the challenge you and I have in living our actual and ordinary lives. (That’s proven true by the off-screen lives of many actors and actresses where there is no script to guide their choices.) Most of us live out our lives without adulation, applause, recognition, or a prized statuette named Oscar on our mantles saying, “Very Successful Human Person.” Though the purpose of our life is to become one, (and I think multitudes of ordinary people do so), we do it quietly, gradually, and unproclaimed.

At the Academy Awards each year we honor exceptional actors and actresses. They are fellow humans who have honed their talents to authentically represent certain other persons, real or imagined. Making a movie is a joint effort. One human writes fascinating scripts and plots and gives actors their words and actions. Others design sets and costumes for them and directors oversee their interpretation and execution of their role. Then, after being given all these aspects by other talented people, actors and actresses pretend. They pretend to the best of their abilities that they are someone else. And all the while they know how the story of their pretend-life will turn out by referring to the script. Don’t get me wrong. I am not demeaning actors and actresses. They possess remarkable talents of

When was the last time someone asked for your autograph? “One sad thing about this world is that the acts that take the most out of us are usually the ones that people will never know about,” wrote Anne Tyler. In our ordinary world we can’t live a life of pretense, acting as though we’re somebody else. Shakespeare had his character Polonius state our authentic goal: “This above all: to thine own self be true, and it must follow, as the night the day, thou canst not then be false to any man.” Or, as stated another way by St. Francis de Sales, “Be yourself, but be your best self!” And as we live being true to ourselves, think of all our unheralded sacrifices, the hard decisions, the inner struggles gone through on our own in this unpredictable world.

Delhi-Price Hill Press

February 23, 2011

Recall the responsibilities, honesty, trust and struggle we maintained when we could have despaired. There may have been times of abuse, neglect or betrayals and unfairness we transcended with intense effort. Our efforts were not pretense or play-acting. There were no scripts given us to tell us exactly what to do or say or how it would end up. We walked into the dark and fought our demons alone – and grew up in the process. That’s a thousand times more deserving of an Oscar than a superbly acted movie. And still our lives move on: caring for aged parents or someone terminally ill; mid-life changes handled successfully; marriage problems; premature deaths of people we loved; changing jobs; depression; anorexia; physical challenges; raising children; etc.


Maybe you’ll watch the Academy Awards and feel so ordinary, especially when compared to the beautiful people in the limelight standing on the Father Lou red carpet. Guntzelman Well, that’s why I wanted to Perspectives write these words and state otherwise. I would like to give you an Oscar for being true to yourself and living your life the best you can. St. Augustine once said: “People travel great distances to admire mountains, oceans, and beautiful scenery, and all the while they walk by the wonder of themselves.” Father Lou Guntzelman is a Catholic priest of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati.

Bring the tropics to your yard with a pineapple If you like really fresh pineapple, and have a year or so, guess what? You can grow your own! Pick a pineapple with good looking foliage on top, especially the center leaves at the crown. Cut off the top at the point where the foliage and fruit come together. Peel off the lower leaves up about an inch or two, and clean off any leftover fruit. Set this aside for a day and let it dry and callus a bit. Now you have two ways to root your pineapple top. One is by simply placing it on top of a glass of water, with the bottom stem in the water (the foliage supports it on top of the glass rim), and give it time to root. Once roots develop, plant


the rooted pineapple top in a pot with potting soil. Or you can skip that procedure – using a wide shallow pot (with good drainage), filled with a good potting mix, and maybe a few tablespoons of coffee grounds to make the soil more acidic, plant your pineapple top with the stem down into the soil, and the soil is even with the bottom of the foliage. Water well, and mist the foliage with a little diluted water-soluble fertilizer. Pineapples take many of their nutrients from the nutrients dissolved in rainwater, so this will simulate rain feeding. Keep your pineapple in a bright area indoors, moving it outdoors during the sum-

mer, and watch it root and grow. Now, getting a pineapple to set fruit takes time and a little trickery. Give your pineapple about six months to a year to root and grow. Then, place a couple ripe apples in a plastic bag, along with the pineapple plant, and tie it closed. Leave it like this for about a week or so. The ethylene gas produced from the ripening apples will help encourage the pineapple to flower and eventually set fruit. It really does work!

A banana a day

Not only are bananas really good for you, they’re really good for the soil and your plants! No doubt about it –

t’ Da S t Sale!

bananas really are one of the super fruits for us to eat! Not only are they one of the best sources of instant and sustained energy, bananas can also help overcome or prevent a substantial number of illnesses and conditions. They help regulate high blood pressure, naturally energize the brain, they’re a great colon cleanser, help take the edge off periods of depression, help curb heartburn, morning sickness and sometimes good for hangovers, and believe it or not, have been a help for some smokers to kick their smoking habit. So, we should all be eating a banana or two a day, right? And when you’re finished eating your banana,

don’t throw out the peel! You see, the banana benefits just keep going because banana peels are good for your soil and for your plants. By adding banana peels back to the soil, they break down, add organic matter back to the soil, and also add nutrients such as potash and phosphorus. Simply cut up your peels in thin slices and toss them in the garden, or in the landscape mulch, or if you want, actually chop them into the soil. And if you have houseplants, take the peels and slide them down between the soil and the side of the pot. That way you add organic matter to your house-


plants soil, and give them a light boost of banana peel Ron Wilson nutrients. In the As they garden break down, banana peels don’t smell, and don’t attract bugs, so they’re safe to use with your plants indoors. So, when someone says an apple a day keeps the doctor away, remind them that a banana a day has about four times the effect – both for you and for your plants!

I love watching what I call “happy” cooks. I mean those cooks who are so jubilant that their entire spirit lights up. That describes Caitlin Steininger perfectly. You may know her as the face behind “Cooking w i t h Caitlin,” a popular blog on Or from her cookRita ing videos, Heikenfeld classes, or Rita’s kitchen even her radio show “What’s Hot” that airs each Sunday 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. on 55-WKRC. With sister Kelly Trush and friend Molly Sandquist, Caitlin, as a very young chef, has carved out a sizable niche for herself by following her passion for teaching all things culinary. Caitlin comes from a genuine foodie background. Grandmother Rita MacEachen is a legend here when it comes to authentic Italian food. And you can find her aunt, Patty Bassano, at her own restaurant, Ferrari’s, in Madeira. Joanie Manzo, another aunt, wrote a nutrition book for kids with me. Caitlin’s creativity comes from being a picky eater. “I started cooking in third grade and loved it. My mom and dad are both good cooks,” she said. Her family, including sons Miles, 4, and MacEachen, 18 months, gets the benefit of a mom who is happiest in the kitchen. She can whip up any cuisine you like. From Thai to Irish to Mediterranean, she does it all, laughing as goes.

Steps to preplanning a funeral

By Melissa Stewart | Editor Although it can be difficult to think about what will happen at the end of life, many people are choosing to preplan their own funeral or memorial service for the sake of their loved ones. Preplanning can ease stress on family and friends who otherwise would be left making difficult decisions at a time when they are feeling emotionally strained. Preplanning is just as important and necessary as planning any other even in your life. Here are some easy steps to help you through the process.

Step 1. Choose the kind of funeral or memorial service you want. Do you want a funeral or memorial service; do you want this service to be formal or informal? Who do you want involved? A funeral service is a traditional ceremony most often held in a funeral home or place of worship. The body is often

Funeral, memorial service preplanning terminology There are terms related to funeral and memorial services that you need to know, including: Casket or coffin is a box in which a body is buried. Columbarium is a vault with small spaces or niches for cremation urns or containers. Cremation is the method of converting the remains to ashes. Crypt is a space in a mausoleum or other building that holds the remains. Direct cremation is done shortly after death without embalming. present during the service with either an open or closed casket. A memorial service is usually less formal and more personally styled to reflect the life of the one who has passed away. Oftentimes, the memorial service is held after the burial or cremation without the body present.

Direct burial happens shortly after death with no viewing or visitation, so no preservation of the body is necessary. Embalming is a chemical process that is used to temporarily preserve the body. Entombment is burial in a building or structure. Grave liner or outer container is a concrete cover that fits over a casket in a grave to minimize ground settling. This item is optional in some states.

Step 2. Consider the costs. Expenses for funeral and memorial services can vary greatly. Decide how much you would like for the service to cost by doing your own research and cost comparisons. You can even choose to prepay for your own funeral and burial

By Neva Martin | Contributor Recently, Great Britain’s Prince William gave his fiancée the engagement ring of Diana, explaining that he wanted his late mother to have a part in their celebration. In doing so, he was honoring Princess Diana’s memory. Most of us don’t have the resources or the high profile of Prince William to pay such a tribute to those whom we mourn. We can, however, look for other options to keep the memory of our loved one alive for generations to come, in ways big and small. Writing a eulogy to be read at the funeral ceremony is one of the more common customs. You might ask a family member or a close friend of the deceased who can give an articulate tribute. To involve more friends and family, ask several of them to each write a poem about the departed loved one, focusing on specific details, and to read their poem at the ceremony. The poems can be collected and presented as a beautiful montage for family and close friends. Those who are adept at writing could re-create the life of the deceased, focusing on the interests, good deeds and issues that the person followed. Let your family and friends read this biography, asking them for input, then have it published, which will, in effect, immortalize

the loved one. You can also assemble a memory box containing mementoes of the deceased – pictures, clothing, perhaps a favorite cup. Often these mementoes are seen at the memorial ceremony, but having them in a box and put in a place for easy access can also help family and friends in the grieving process. This box can be opened and shown to family members for years to come, again creating a type of immortality for the lost one. A memorial garden can incorporate the healing force of nature, for those who wish to create a living tribute to their loved one. It could be a space in your yard, on your patio, planting a native tree, shrub or flower. These options can be incorporated into a larger memorial, complete with a path, a memorial garden bench paying tribute to the deceased, and offering a place for reflection on that individual’s life journey. It’s also an apt reflection of the path that we all take, symbolizing growth and bloom that alternates with quiet periods of rest and renewal. Eulogy, poems, memory box, memorial garden, even a donation to the loved one’s favorite charity or hobby – these can all celebrate the life the departed in loving and honorable ways. Sources:;;

Donating your body to science By Neva Martin | Contributor Although you may not have a fortune to leave after your time on earth is over, you might want to consider the gift of self – your physical self. It can be an invaluable help for generations to come. Body donations have the potential to save many lives. An earlier diagnosis of cancer, a new treatment for Alzheimer's disease, less invasive methods in operating for brain tumors – these are all procedures that rely on surgeons and researchers having access to human tissue so they can conduct research and training. If you do decide to donate your body to science, one organization to consult is the American Association of Tissue Banks (AATB). It can help you find a good place to start for an ethical, accred-

ited program, said Greg Loeben, Ph.D., coordinator of the Bioethics Program in Arizona for Midwestern University. “AATB requires members to meet strict standards for record keeping and the distribution and processing of human tissue,” Loeben said. You can also preregister your donation with a local medical school or university. The organization will send you a registration packet that goes over its policies and procedures. Be sure to read it carefully. Medical schools, by law, are not permitted to purchase anyone’s body. If you are satisfied with its policies, you can sign a consent form stating your desire to donate your body. Place it with a copy of your will and other personal documents. You will not be listed as a

donor until you receive a completed form from the institution acknowledging your consent. Be sure that your spouse, adult children and other relatives are aware of your decision, as well as your doctor, so they will know what to do when the time comes. Some institutions may send you a wallet card that will notify authorities at the time of death, making it easier to transport your body properly to the institution. Donating your body to science doesn’t mean you can’t also be an organ donor. Another group to check is the United Network for Organ Sharing ( This national group oversees organ transplantation procedures in the United States. Sources;;;

Coping with the loss of a loved one

By Neva Martin | Contributor Disbelief, shock, sadness, anger … these are just a few of the emotions you may experience when you lose someone you love dearly. From guilt to despair, from denial to yearning, those feelings are normal as you go through the mourning process. The more significant your loss, the more intense is your grief, whether it’s your spouse, a child or a longtime friend. But grieving is also a highly individual experience and how you grieve depends on many factors, among them your personality and coping style, your faith, and how the loss occurred. More than 40 years ago, psy-

chiatrist Elisabeth Kubler-Ross described what has been called the five stages of grief, based on studies of her patients who faced terminal illness: Denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance. If you are experiencing any of these emotions from a loss, know they are normal and natural, but also know that you do not have to go through each of these stages in order to heal. You may not go through any of them. Still, it doesn’t mean you feel loss any less. Know, though, that coping with your pain is vital to your mental health. Most importantly, allow yourself to grieve.

And, as you experience the emotional pain from the death of your loved one, you can find several ways to help you cope: • Reach out to caring people. Find those relatives and friends who understand you and your feelings of loss. This can include joining support groups that include others, who are experiencing similar losses. • Don’t be afraid to express your feelings. It’s OK to tell caring others about how you feel. This is a step to help you work through the grieving process. • Take care of your physical health. Be sure to stay in regular contact with your family physician. Eat well and get plenty of

rest. And be mindful of the danger of becoming dependent on alcohol or other medications to help you deal with your grief. • Accept that life is for the living. This can be a challenge but is necessary to begin the process of living once again in the present, not dwelling on the past. • Postpone major life changes. Moving, remarrying, changing jobs, having another child – try to hold off on any big decisions. Give yourself time to adjust to your loss. • Have patience. This can be one of the hardest achievements, because it can take months and years to absorb your loss and accept your

changed life. • Seek outside help if necessary. For some, grief may be too hard to bear, but seeking professional assistance to help you work through your pain is a sign of strength, not weakness. Don’t forget: Time is a great healer. You may never stop missing your loved one, but the pain will ease after time and allow you to go on with your life. Sources:;

Honoring Military funeral honors available to veterans your best friend

1. Create a scrapbook or even a website to honor your pet’s life. Here’s one example of such a memorial site:

headstone or marker, a burial flag and a Presidential Memorial Certificate, all at no expense to the family. Some veterans could be eligible for burial allowances. Those who desire cremation in a national cemetery would receive the same honors as those desiring a casket burial. These benefits are not automatic, however. For one thing, it is important that family members know the location of the veteran’s discharge papers, to establish eligibility.

At Mihovk-Rosenacker Funeral Homes, our purpose is to provide professional, considerate services that merit your trust.

3. Create and publish a book about your pet’s life

4. Encourage your children to write a letter to your pet or draw a picture for him or her.

8. Contact a pet cemetery or community park to see if you can sponsor a bench or tree affixed with an acknowledgment plaque memorializing your pet. 9. Frame a photo of your pet and put it in a special place. 10. Keep your pet’s favorite toy, collar, blanket or bowl as a symbol of your pet.

out the country, throughout the year, to honor both active soldiers who have been killed in the line of duty as well as those veterans who served in earlier times. Whatever the arrangements, and however the sad the memorial, it can be comforting to know that the service has honored that family member, that soldier who served our nation so faithfully.

The VA does not make funeral arrangements or perform cremations, so your family might wish to pre-plan with a funeral home, ahead of the need, to ease the burden, especially if the soldier wants to be buried in a national cemetery. The funeral home can also be in touch with local active-duty and reserve military groups, as well as local veterans posts such as the American Legion, and the Veterans of Foreign Wars. Many of these groups volunteer through-

6. Hold a memorial service at a pet cemetery, in your backyard, or in a place that was special to your animal companion.

It is also helpful to know the wishes of that family soldier who has served: songs to be sung at the memorial service, comrades to participate, and any other rituals such as the playing of Taps. The military also provides two uniformed members of the armed services to carry out the honors, which include presenting the folded flag to the next of kin. Other rituals may include an honor guard and a rifle firing party to salute the deceased soldier.
