Sayler Park trying to save off budget cut to rec center

By Heidi Fallon

Sayler Park is going to find itself without the use of the swimming pool this summer unless the recreation center can raise nearly $37,000 by April 16. Terry Mongenas, service area coordinator for the center, said drastic budget cuts by the Cincinnati Recreation Commission has the village pool on a list with 19 other pools across the city to be closed. “They’ve cut $7 million since 2008 and $2.2 million this year,” Mongenas said. “Not having the pool will be terrible for the children and families in our community.” Mongenas estimates 300 children visit the pool on any given summer day. The cost for swimming is included in the $10 annual center membership fee. She said Dunham’s pool will remain open, but folks using it would have to pay the $2 daily fee.

It’s a course not normally on the schedule, so they organized one themselves. About 70 members of the University of Cincinnati Chi Omega sorority went to Duebber’s Automotive in Delhi Township to get a crash course in basic car maintenance. “I basically don’t know anything about cars,” said Katie Carpenter, Delhi Township. “I rely on my brother to put the washer fluid in for me and now he’s gone, so I have to learn this stuff.” Sophia Herrmann, Bridgetown, said she was hoping to learn how to change a tire.

Get Away!



Terry Mongenas, Sayler Park recreation center service area coordinator, checks the lock on the pool that may have to stay closed if funds are raised to open it this summer. “We are trying to raise awareness in the community and hope to get the money we need from donations from individuals and, hopefully, businesses along River Road,” Mongenas said. Amy Searcy, neighborhood support program coordinator for the Sayler Park Village Council, said the council is working with the center’s fundraising efforts and is allowing it to use it to funnel donations. “Closing the pool will have an impact on our families in Sayler Park who have been accustomed to using that pool for many, many years,” Searcy said. “There is no convenient way for our residents to get to any other pool without taking public transportation and making bus trans-

fers,” she said. “In this economy, having the pool is a form of recreation at a minimal cost and we hate to face losing it.” Mongenas said it will take $36,779 to open the pool and staff it with lifeguards for eight weeks. “Not having the pool will mean our young people will have nothing to do this summer,” she said. “We are fairly isolated down here and there’s just no way our kids can get on a bus to get to another pool. “They will have very little to do and that, to me, isn’t a good thing.” For more information about making a donation, call Morgenas at the center at 941-0101 or e-mail Searcy at

Mechanics provide basic car care lessons “I don’t want to be stranded,” she said. Along with those two lessons, Marc Duebber said he and his mechanics were showing how to change the oil and replace windshield wipers, as well as providing a list of essentials for anyone to have tucked away in the car. “We are really happy to do this for the sorority,” Duebber said. “There are things like how to jump start a car properly that everyone should know.” Grabbing a wrench, Allison Ahlers was about to get her first lesson in tire changing. “This is something I wanted to learn along with how to change the oil,” Ahlers, Delhi Township, said. “This has been fun and I’m learning a lot.”

Marty Paff gives Sophia Herrmann, left, and Katie Carpenter, along with other members of their Chi Omega sorority, tips on car maintenance essentials. Paff and other mechanics at Duebber’s Automotive provided the Saturday seminar Feb. 19.

Sgt. 1st Class Chad Lawson stands at attention as Gen. David Petraeus, commander of U.S. military operations in Afghanistan, pins the Silver Star on the Price Hill native.

Elder grad Lawson earns Silver Star Gannett News Service Caught in an ambush of nearly 50 insurgents in southern Afghanistan last summer, Special Operations Sgt. 1st Class Chad Lawson and other members of his team were in grave danger. Instinct to rescue his injured comrades earned the Cincinnati native praise from the commander of U.S. Forces in Afghanistan, Gen. David Petraeus, along with the Silver Star, the thirdhighest military decoration for gallantry awarded to a member of the United States armed forces. “What you did, frankly, was extraordinarily heroic,” Petraeus told Lawson as he pinned the medal on the 1996 Elder High School graduate’s uniform in a ceremony at Kandahar Airfield in Afghanistan, according to a news release issued by the U.S. Army Special Operations Command. Lawson ran through enemy fire to rescue his downed team sergeant and organize a medical evacuation, according to the Pentagon. The narrative accompanying his award reads: “During his sprint, Sergeant Lawson was barely missed by (rocket-propelled grenade) and (heavy machine-gun) fire, with rounds chipping off the walls and ground all around him.” Joe Schoenfeld, head basketball coach at Elder, has “no idea how these guys get the courage to do what they do,” but said he’s proud of his former player.

“He was always a good teammate and a nice guy,” Schoenfeld said, recalling that even as a young man, Lawson was stoic – someone who “didn’t have to be heard every second of the day.” Schoenfeld remembers the young man who grew up in Price Hill suffering a shoulder injury on the basketball court in the beginning of his senior season, forcing him to sit on the sidelines much of the year. But Lawson remained determined, Schoenfeld said, stuck with weight training and eventually played basketball at University of Cincinnati-Clermont College. “The other players voted him ‘Mr. ZIP’” Schoenfeld said. “It’s an annual award that stands for zeal, inspiration and perseverance.” The Department of Defense does not keep extensive records of Silver Star awards, but it is believed more than 100,000 have been issued since the honor was established during World War I. Lawson accepted the award on behalf of his team, according to the Special Operations Command news release. “The nice thing about military honors is that rarely, if ever, is it solely your award,” Lawson reportedly said after the presentation. “So I refuse to accept it on behalf of myself, but more for my team.” Lawson and his family live near Fort Bragg, N.C. Lawson remains stationed in Afghanistan.

It was a deal the Delhi Township Fire Department couldn’t pass up. Fire Chief Bill Zoz got the green light from trustees Feb. 23 to buy a fire truck and its equipment from the now disbanded Cleves department. It will cost $105,000, about a third of what Zoz was planning to spend in a few years. Zoz told trustees the 1998 truck, which comes with 16,000 miles and fully equipped, will allow him to delay the purchase of a new truck as part of the capital replacement cycle.

Township Administrator Gary Schroeder said that means Zoz won’t be spending the Zoz estimated $350,000 for a new fire truck scheduled for four to five years from now. Trustees agreed to take the truck purchase price from the township’s tax increment financing fund. Zoz said his department should make some of that purchase price back by selling off some of its equipment.

“I think we can come within $20,000 or so of the purchase price with the sale of existing assets,” Zoz said. Zoz also received trustee approval to spend $3,289 for upgraded and energy efficient lighting for the Neeb Road fire station bay area. Zoz said estimated savings with the new lighting fixtures and timers could be as much as $7,000 during the next 10 years. The money for that purchase will come from the fire department budget, Schroeder said. For more about your community, visit www.cincinnati. com/delhitownship

Knowlton Foundation. The Mount’s Austin E. Knowlton Memorial Scholarship fund was established in 2009 with one scholarship in honor of Austin E. Knowlton. “The foundation is highly supportive of the College of Mount St. Joseph and the educational endeavors of the Sisters of Charity,” says Charles D. Lindberg, trustee of the Knowlton Foundation. “We hope that these scholarships will allow students to take advantage of the Mount’s rich learning environment and pursue careers in design or architecture.” Knowlton was a life-long Ohio resident who became a successful businessman, avid sportsman and generous philanthropist. He was the owner and chairman of the Knowlton Construction Co., a

business started in 1937 in Bellefontaine. Through his company, Knowlton was responsible for over 600 major construction projects throughout Ohio and the Midwest, including school buildings, hospitals and libraries. He established the Austin E. Knowlton Foundation with a goal to advance higher education. As a sports enthusiast, he had a 50-year interest in saddle bred horses. He was a founding partner and chairman of the Cincinnati Bengals, a major owner for many years of the Cincinnati Reds, and a trustee of the Little Brown Jug Society for harness racing in Delaware, Ohio. Students with an interest in design or architecture can attend the Mount and major in interior architecture and design. The interior architecture and design program (formerly interior design) is a four-year, pre-professional program that provides students with the knowledge and skills to unlock new opportunities

in the world of design and beyond. IAD provides a foundation for multiple career tracks or graduate study, including: interior architecture, architecture, landscape architecture, product design, environmental graphic design, socially responsible design, environmental/behavioral science, anthropology, management, business, marketing, advertising, and communications. First consideration is given to residents of Logan County who have been accepted to the Mount as a full-time, first-year student. If there are no applicants from Logan County, a resident of the state of Ohio will be considered. The scholarships are renewable for four years provided the recipient is enrolled full time and is good academic standing. Scholarship applications will be available in the fall.

Grant lets Literacy Net help kids to read JPMorgan Chase awarded the Literacy Network of Greater Cincinnati a $29,300 Children’s Literacy Services Program grant for its Children’s Basic Reading Program (CBRP) and Cincinnati Reads (CR). CBRP provides free reading instruction for firstthrough fifth-grade children suffering from severe reading deficiencies or symptoms of dyslexia. Utilizing a multi-sensory technique based on the Orton-Gillingham approach, the program gives students the tools and confidence to read independently. Students take classes four days a week for one hour for two years. Since the program’s inception in 1998, graduates have averaged a 3.5 grade level increase in their word attack skills. In the 2009-10 school year, 49 students were served through the program’s classes. CR recruits and trains volunteers to work one-onone with K-fourth-grade students in Cincinnati Public Schools who read below grade level. 1,969 volunteers have completed a training seminar since 2001. This year, the program trained 561 tutors and placed them in over 30 schools. Since 1986, the Literacy Network has served as a contact center for literacy, providing a full-time referral hotline (621-READ) for prospective tutors and learners. In addition to the Children’s Basic Reading Program and Cincinnati Reads, the network acts as an umbrella agency for over 60 sites in Greater Cincinnati where adults may go to

improve their basic education and literacy skills. The Network provides free Adult Basic Reading Classes for people with profound reading disabilities and tutor training programs for volunteers interested in working with adults or children.

Several area wrestlers advance to state By Tony Meale

More than two dozen local wrestlers from Elder, Oak Hills, Western Hills, St. Xavier and La Salle performed at the Division I district tournament Feb. 25-26 at Fairfield. Elder, which advanced a dozen grapplers to districts, led area teams with five state-qualifiers. Panthers Tyler Hardtke (152), Ian Korb (171), Kevin Hyland (189) and Rakim Johnson (215) won district titles, while Nick Nusekabel finished third in the 285-

pound division. “We always just hope our guys have the right mind set, which at this time of year is about 85 percent of the game,” Elder head coach Dick McCoy said. “A lot of kids want (their season) to be over and (we hope) we can grant their wish.” The OHSAA State Wrestling Championships will be March 3-5 at the Jerome Schottenstein Center at Ohio State University in Columbus. Korb enters the tournament with a perfect 35-0 record, while Hyland is 42-5, Nuskabel is 38-3, Hardtke is 33-6 and Johnson is 20-6.

Elder’s lineup was ravaged by injuries this season, but McCoy, whose team is ranked fifth in the state, said before districts that he nevertheless hoped for four to five state-qualifiers. “I think we’ve done a great job in light of the injuries we had to deal with,” McCoy said. “It allowed us to get mat time for some of our younger guys that will benefit down the road.” Oak Hills, meanwhile, had two state-qualifiers in seniors Ryan Fitzpatrick (160) and Logan Andriot (215); each was a district runnerup. Fitzpatrick is 36-7, while Andri-

ot is 35-5. La Salle junior Max Byrd won a district title at 119. He is a twotime, state-placer. St. Xavier freshman Joe Heyob placed fourth at 135 to earn a spot in Columbus. Elder’s Korb figures to have the best chance among area wrestlers of winning a state title. McCoy, however, is excited for all of his wrestlers who will be at state. “As of right now, we’re pretty healthy,” he said. “When someone draws an Elder kid, he better be ready to wrestle his best because we will bring it.”

T h e record was held since 1988, and Heyhow Emily broke it by one second. “The coach was expecting me to beat the record, but I didn’t think I would break it by that much,” she said. “I was so excited when my family and friends told me I beat it!” The previous record of 58.61 was held by Jodie Monnig, Seton High School Class of 1991. Emily finished fifth at the district meet and was scheduled to compete at the State Meet in Canton, Ohio, Thursday, Feb. 24. She earned the 12th seeded spot in state.

Schoenfeld discusses the road to 300

Elder High School head basketball coach Joe Schoenfeld notched the 300th win of his career with a 61-54 overtime win at St. Xavier Feb. 18. He has a career record of 300-157 (.656) and is now second on Elder’s alltime wins list to Paul “Hans” Frey, who had 383. Schoenfeld, who played for Frey, graduated from Elder in 1977 and played at Xavier University. He graduated from XU in 1981 and coached freshman and JV basketball at Elder before taking over as head coach in 1991. He guided the Panthers to a state title in 1993 – their third in program history. Here, Schoenfeld discusses the road to 300. What does 300 wins mean to you? “The thing that was real touching was seeing how much it meant to the players that night. They were real excited about it and real happy about it. For me, that was a neat feeling because you felt like everybody was pulling together. “The number itself is great, but it’s just one game. As you get to a milestone like that, you think back to all the games that led up to that and the number of great people you’ve coached and the nice parents you’ve met through the years. Those were the things that struck me that night – just how excited people were for me. It makes you feel like you made some real connections.”

What does it mean to you to be in the discussion with former Elder coaches J. Walter Bartlett and Paul “Hans” Frey? “Those guys are legendary coaches at Elder, and I certainly do not consider myself anywhere near those guys and what they did. It’s an honor to have been around long enough to the point where people mention you with those guys, but they’re legends. The stuff they did was just incredible. Walter Bartlett coached just about every sport at Elder. He coached football, basketball, baseball, track – and Coach Frey was just one of a kind. I was fortunate enough to be able to play for him, and I took a lot of lessons from him that I tried to incorporate, like how much pride you should have in your school and how hard you have to work in practices and games to be successful. I don’t aspire to be their equals because I’d be setting myself up for disappointment. Your teams have won five GCL titles, six sectional titles, five district titles, two regional championships and one state title; what are you most proud of? “From a something-youcan-measure standpoint, probably winning the ‘93 state championship because you can say you were a part of a team that did that great thing. From an intangible highlight, it’d just be the friendships and relationships I still have with players I coached and the families of

people I’ve coached. That’s the stuff that keeps you going and makes you feel good about what you’re doing and why you’re doing it. You won a state title pretty early in your coaching career; do you have a stronger appreciation for winning state now that you’ve had some years to see how hard it truly is? “Oh, yeah. I was so young when that happened, and I didn’t know any better. I didn’t realize how hard that is to do and how lucky you have to be. We got back to state in 2001 and lost by three points. That was tough to take. You put all that work in and you get there, and you come up short. I’m super proud of those kids, though. “I think we’ve had other teams in recent years when we (could have won state) but had an injury here, an injury there. It goes back to how good and fortunate and lucky you have to be to win a state championship. And I had no idea about any of that when we won it. You always want to get back there and do it again, but I have a greater appreciation for it now than I ever did then. I was too young and stupid at the time.” Is that 92-93 team the best one you ever coached? “That was a pretty darn good team, yeah. I think that 2001 team was also really good, and the 2007 team – with Rudolph, Raterman, Kevin Johnson, Nick Holmes and guys like that –

Elder to face Colerain in sectional semis The Elder High School basketball team finished the regular season 11-9 overall and 4-6 in the Greater Catholic League. Seeded 11th, the Panthers open the postseason against No. 24 Colerain in the sectional semifinals March 2 at Princeton. The Cardinals (8-13, 3-11) dispatched No. 9 Milford 66-53 in their postseason-opener, while Elder last played Feb. 18 – a 61-54 overtime win at St. Xavier.

“I think the win over St. X gave everybody a shot in the arm with confidence,” Elder head coach Joe Schoenfeld said. “Our short-term goal would be to make sure we play on a college floor. And (the University of Dayton) is one of the greatest places to play basketball, so if we can get there, that’d be outstanding. “The kids have played really hard this year, all year long. Sometimes we’re not as talented

as the guys we’re going against, but we’ve always worked hard. We fall behind and we keep coming back, we fall behind and we keep coming back – I think the kids are anxious to match up with some of the good teams and see how we can compete. And hopefully we can knock of some teams that people perceive as better than us. I think they’re looking forward to that challenge.”

In football he was MVP his senior year and second-team all-city. He played basketball at the University of Cincinnati,

industrial league softball and basketball, and on the Oak Hills Swim and Racquet Club Tennis Team. Pat Riley, class of 1960, earned three varsity letters in football at West High, named to the 1958 and 1959 PHSL All-Stars, 1959 Post & Times Star First Team, 1959 Enquirer Prep All-Star First Team Offense, and 1960 First Team All-City. He was on the gymnastics and track teams, placing first in the 1960 PHSL Track Meet 120-yard high hurdles, and Elder Track Meet low hurdles and high jump. At Northwestern University he lettered three years in football, named MVP his sophomore and senior years, winning All-Midwest honors as first-team defense 1964 in Football Magazine. Phil Brown, 1971, was a three-year varsity letterman in baseball at Western Hills High School, winning AllPHSL and All-City honors. He was on the Wilson Freight second-place team in the Connie Mack World Series. He played baseball at the University of Cincinnati, receiving the “Jimmy Nippert Award” for top student athlete scholar. He was named Cincinnati Softball Player of the Year in 1984.

Since 1998 he has been Elder High School’s assistant varsity baseball coach, named Assistant Coach of the Year by the Ohio High School Baseball Coaches Association in 2008. Jennifer Hogan Condon, class of 1996, received four varsity letters in volleyball, three varsity letters in basketball, and four varsity letters in softball, as a starter sophomore through senior years. In volleyball she was named Cincinnati Post Scholar Athlete of the Week in 1995, and was captain on the league championship basketball team. In softball, she was firstteam, all-league and all-city in 1995. She played fall and spring select soccer and summer AAU basketball. At Wilmington College she lettered in softball and volleyball. Pat O’Brien, Western Hills High School’s head football coach from 1975-1985, holds the most wins as football coach in the school’s history, winning two PHSL and one Metro County Conference Championship. He was selected Coach of the Year three times, and head coach of the West All-Star team two times. He coached Western Hills High School’s girls volleyball three years.

Joe Schoenfeld works the sidelines during a game against Moeller in January 2010.

What made you get into coaching? “It was the influence my high school coaches had on me. Coach Frey, obviously. But there were other guys. My freshman coach, Tom Bushman, and my JV coach, Ray Bachus – those guys, plus Coach Frey, made such an impression on me. That’s why I wanted to get into coaching and teaching in the first place. If I can make Elder as much fun for the kids now as those coaches made it for me, that’d be all right.”

maintain that pace, you’ll be the winningest basket ball coach in Elder history in six years; how important is that distinction for you? “Not at all. I don’t even think about that. Coach Frey, he’ll always be the greatest basketball coach that ever coached at Elder – regardless of wins. What he accomplished, his winning percentage, how his teams represented the school and the community – he’ll always be the greatest. And I played for him, so I know.”

that was a pretty darn good team, too. But it’d be hard to beat that ‘93 team. That team just had some really wonderful competitors like David Ginn and Johnny Miller and Mike Schwallie and Pat Kelsey and Kevin Whitmer. They were just winners, guys who weren’t going to be denied. They just had that “It” factor. They were definitely unique. No other Elder team had it to that degree with so many kids. I don’t want to slight any other team, but that was a special group.”

What do you think will be the effects if collective bargaining is eliminated for state workers?

“I do not think collective bargainnig should be eliminated. “The one thing that an arbitrater does not take into consideration when making a decision is where is the funds to finance his decision coming from. “If he had to consider this aspect their would be far fewer decisions forcing goverment agencies finding the funds to carry out the award.” L.S. “The effects will be: Job growth, lower taxes, hopefully an end, to the pathetic, parasitic, blood-sucking public sector union gravy trains.

“Significant budget savings and a VERY unhappy workforce.” B.N.

Hamilton County is open for business Hamilton County Commissioners recently voted to create a new management position that is designed to keep existing jobs in Hamilton County while creating an environment that promotes new economic development in our area. This full-time position of development services facilitator will operate in the county’s Department of Planning and Development while reporting to Assistant Hamilton County Administrator Jeff Aluotto. Working in the county’s Planning and Development Department positions this individual to assess and prevent future construction disputes and slow downs in issuing building permits. Reporting directly to the assistant county administrator also gives the individual the independence to support initiatives that might otherwise by stifled by departmental red tape. I proposed the creation of this new position because, over the years, Hamilton County has developed a reputation for being difficult to do business with. Contractors, homebuilders and small business owners were increasingly frustrated with the time it was taking to have business plans approved and construction permits issued. And as the saying goes, “Time is money.” Hamilton County businesses were more frequently finding themselves out of time and running out of money in waiting for their plans and permits to be approved. It became an easy decision for

Today was a special day at the Delhi Senior Services on Neeb Road. Over 100 seniors were treated to patriotic music for Presidents Day. The treat was provided by over one hundred third graders from C. O. Harrison School. They came walking down Neeb Road in chilly weather to sing for us. They came in proudly and formed a circle around the room embracing all one hundred of we seniors. They sang well rehearsed songs taught by some very dedicated music teachers. They gave the children the understanding needed to sing a hearty patriotic song. They filled the hall and our hearts with music and pride. Somehow there was a feeling that this country will be alright. They smiled and slowly paraded out with our applause trailing them. I hope they know how proud we are to know them. And what they mean to our country. Jessica Scully Delhi Township

Early justice was meted out differently Early justices of the peace were powerful men in their townships. They were usually appointed by the state or jurisdiction they served. Although, their duties were varied, they generally officiated at weddings, witnessed oaths and signatures, issuing subpoenas and warrants. They also could make arrests, conduct inquests, mediate differences, and conduct trials for small claims court or misdemeanor offenses. In general the qualifications for office were the same. The person had to live in the jurisdiction where he was appointed, be a registered voter there, and be free from felony convictions. Delhi Township was created off of Green Township in 1817. The first justices of the peace were Peter Williams and William Cullum. George Cullum took his father’s place in 1829. I haven’t found any information about how Delhi Township’s justices of the peace conducted their offices, but I have found information on Storrs Township’s (Sedamsville). Colonial Cornelius Sedam was the first justice of the peace there. He was appointed in 1823, and served until his death in 1870. His son Henry Sedam took over after his death. Throughout his tenure Henry Sedam used his own brand of jus-



recorded very few records, to be challenged. During his entire career his entries into his ledger books was less that 12 pages. And behind all of his cases in annual Betty Kamuf his report to the Community county auditor Press guest he added, “No columnist Costs.” Squire Sedam held court every Tuesday and Saturday. The court room was out in his orchard, in the shade of his fruit trees. While waiting for justice, the litigants munched on apples and watermelons. For minor cases he tried to get the litigants to settle out of court by ordering them to be sociable and settle their disputes. While they were bargaining, he dealt with more serious matters. His way of dealing with criminals would turn heads. For certain offenses he rowed the culprit across the river to Kentucky and let him figure out how to get back without money or any other means. For more serious offenders he locked them up in the Bastille. It was a circular front room of a wine cellar dug into the side of a large mound. It had heavy iron

doors, secured by a heavy padlock. Over the entrance appeared the word Bastille with a border of swords and pistols around it. The Bastille served as dressing room one day, when a man walking to church had the seat of his pants ripped out by a ferocious dog. He stopped at Sedam’s house clamoring for justice. Sedam ordered his bailiff to find the dog’s owner. Then both men were escorted into the Bastille. When they came out they had switched pants. The dog owner appeared with torn pants and the complaining party walked onto church without torn pants. One day a steamboat tied up at Sedamsville river front. It was heavily laden with freight. The crew had not been paid in a while and complained to Sedam. While the boat’s officers fled to Cincinnati for an injunction against the crew, Sedam summoned his constable. They went aboard and weighed out to each member of the crew enough provisions from the cargo to compensate for wages, and sent them on. When the captains came back they found the mutiny solved. I wonder if his kind of justice would work today. Betty Kamuf is a winner of Griffin Yeatman Award for Historical Preservation. She lives in Sayler Park. You can reach her at

Senate Bill 5 will not solve state’s budget problems You’ve probably seen and heard stories about the thousands of Ohio working men and women who have traveled to the Statehouse in Columbus to make their voice heard on Senate Bill 5 -- a bill that would end or severely limit bargaining and negotiating rights for teachers, firefighters and police officers among many others. We are seeing this same fight across the country, in not just Ohio and Wisconsin, but now in states such as Nebraska, Oklahoma, and Florida. For 28 years, collective bargaining has been a part of Ohio law. It has reduced conflict, prevented strikes, and improved training and productivity among public employ-

ees. Passed in 1983, the law has improved working conditions by establishing balance and fairness in negotiations because both managers and workers sit down together and agree to working arrangements and compensation. Our firefighters, police officers, teachers, bus drivers, prison guards, water and sewer workers, and in-home caregivers as well as our communities benefit from these agreements. They provide stability to working families and allow them to spend their dollars in their communities on commodities and services. They help keep local merchants open and communities thriving. We are hearing SB 5 discussed

in the context of the budget, but eliminating collective bargaining rights will not solve our budget problems. Nine percent of the state budget goes to state employee salary and benefits. Hypothetically, if we fired every state employee in Ohio, it would only save $2 billion leaving the state without vital services and a remaining $6 billion deficit. This does not address our budget problems. Public workers have acknowledged these tough economic times by making numerous concessions and sacrifices. In 2008, state bargaining units saved the state $250 million through higher employee contributions to health care, wage freezes and

unpaid furlough days. Others have weighed in on the debate, including Bishop Stephen Blair, chairman of the U.S. Bishops’ Committee on domestic justice. He has stated that, “The debates over worker representation and collective bargaining are not simply matters of ideology or power but involve principles of justice, participation and how workers can have a voice in the workplace and economy.” Earlier this week I had the opportunity to meet with numerous Cincinnati residents at the State House. Their clear message was that SB 5, if enacted, will have a significant and negative impact on their families and their way of life

Plans unveiled for renovation of The Elberon By Kurt Backscheider

The transformation of one of Price Hill’s most notable eyesores is under way. The Elberon, a historic landmark at the corner of Elberon Avenue and West Eighth Street, is being returned to its glory and will once again stand out as a neighborhood jewel. Hundreds of residents and community leaders gathered in front of the weathered and rundown

building Wednesday, Feb. 23, to celebrate the kick-off of a construction project that will turn the 26,526square-foot structure into a living facility for senior citizens. Price Hill Will has partnered with the Model Group to renovate The Elberon into 37 one- and two-bedroom units for adults ages 55 and older. The project, which is expected to be completed in February 2012, will cost $7.4 million and draws upon five funding sources,


A concept drawing shows what the building at Elberon Avenue and West Eighth Street will look like when completed. Price Hill Will is working with the Model Group to turn the historic building into a senior living facility.


The architectural elements of the building at West Eighth Street and Elberon Avenue helped make it a prominent structure in Price Hill. The historic building will once again claim positive prominence in the neighborhood after Price Hill Will and the Model Group turn it into a senior living facility.

including the city of Cincinnati’s HOME funds and federal Neighborhood Stabilization Program II dollars. “This has been a long time coming,” said Ken Smith, executive director of Price Hill Will, as he addressed the crowd. “This is a great day to be in Price Hill. It’s truly wonderful.” He said the redevelopment of the building will have a positive impact on the entire neighborhood. “The rebirth of this highly visible structure will send a strong message that the Hill is alive and thrives,” Smith said. East Price Hill resident Frank Hollister, who lives just a few blocks away from the Elberon and is active in the East Price Hill Improvement Association, said The Elberon project, the Incline Square project adjacent to the Queen’s Tower, the Incline Business District

development plan along Price Avenue and the relatively new Kroger on Warsaw Avenue all mark a significant development trend sweeping the community. “This city will soon recognize East Price Hill as one of the ‘in’ places to live,” Hollister said. Cincinnati Vice Mayor Roxanne Qualls said she can remember driving past The Elberon 40 years ago on her way to visit her friends, Jim and Eileen Schenk, after they first moved to Enright Avenue. Qualls said the plan to restore The Elberon reflects the passion residents have for ensuring Price Hill is a strong community. “I’m very pleased, after many years, we are going to see the renovation of this great building,” she said. Delhi Township resident Jerry Knight said his two great aunts used to live in an apartment in The

Elberon in the late 1950s and early 1960s. “It was a shame to see this building go to pot,” Knight said. “I’m anxious to see the changes.” Bobby Maly, senior vice president of the Model Group, said procuring the historic building has been quite a journey. He said the project defines his company’s mission, and that’s to revitalize neighborhoods through development of affordable housing. “We look forward to seeing everyone in 12 months when we open up and have people moving in,” he said. Smith said The Elberon has always made a statement about Price Hill. Unfortunately, for many years it made a negative statement, but now he said the structure will proudly state Price Hill is on the rise and worth the investment. “We’re finally here,” he said.

Are being human and being holy a contradiction? Occasionally the American Catholic laywoman, Dorothy Day, is mentioned as a possible candidate for sainthood. I realize the uneasiness of many who are not Catholic about the whole issue of saints. However, I would like to use some factors of her life to speak about being holy. Dorothy Day was a Greenwich Village radical in the 1920s. In her early years she was a friend of leftists like John Reed and a drinking buddy to writers like John Dos Passos. By the age of 30, she had had an abortion, been divorced, and borne another lover’s child. Later, after converting to Catholicism, she changed drastically and dedicated her life to the poor – not as a nun but as a layperson. She built a string of hospitality houses for the homeless and hungry. She championed the

rights if immigrants and farm laborers through her newspaper “The Catholic Worker,” and founded the Catholic Worker Movement. Her commitment was so sincere that she practiced poverty in her life. She was wary of adulation, advising friends not to “trivialize me by trying to make me a saint.” She died in 1980 at the age of 83. But what about her early life and sainthood being mentioned in the same breath? Judgmental people, and many pious Catholics, will sniff disapprovingly at her coming to be considered an exemplar of holiness. “She’s certainly not my idea of a saint,” many would say. To them her past will overshadow her transformation and what she grew to become. We have a blurred image of what holiness means. Our idea

human. We regret not being God – as did the first humans depicted in Genesis. We abhor being imperfect, weak, humbled, having to struggle to become more than we are. It is especially difficult for a generation of achievers to accept the intrinsic weakness of human nature. Genuine human growth and holiness (wholeness) are spread over a lifetime. Some religiousappearing people may just to be good pretenders. George McCauley S.J. wrote beautifully of one of the most forgiving and empathetic moments for a human that occurred in the scriptures. It was the incident when the woman caught in adultery was brought to Jesus Christ for condemnation. McCauley writes: “When Jesus defends the woman taken in adultery, he is also defending himself. He has identified with

usually includes degrees of antihumanness. We prefer saints be born as plastic people and remain so. When I was younger I remember hearing some saint’s childhood extolled with words similar to these: “She was so dedicated to God, that from the age of 10 she often chose to spend hours alone praying in church rather than join in the frivolous games of the other children.” If I heard of such a child doing that today I’d wonder about what unhealthiness, not holiness, lurked in that child’s life and why. Such a child would have as much transformation to accomplish as Dorothy Day. Holiness is wholeness, human wholeness. And we never begin life with an accomplished wholeness spiritually or psychologically. We are embarrassed at being

her shame and pain because he has learned that to be human is Father Lou to be caught in a Guntzelman complex web of circumstances Perspectives that constantly trip and trap us.” “He does not defend evil. But he defends evildoers against all the righteous fakes and phonies who fail to sympathize with our laborious ascent from primeval slime to glory on high. He sets kind standards for the pace of our transformation, so that he may always hold out hope.” That seems true for people like Dorothy Day and for people like you and me.

If a fire hits your home, check out restoration company If the unthinkable happens and your house catches on fire, the repairs can be extensive, lengthy and costly. That’s what a Delhi Township family faced last year after an electrical fire broke out in the children’s bedroom. They hired a restoration company to rebuild, but said their problems only got worse. Homeowner Gina Torbeck said the damage was so great everything had to be removed down to the studs. “We were told we’d be back in within three months. I wasn’t so sure three months was realistic, I was thinking five months – but 10 months is a little

ridiculous,” she said. The home restoration company said the cost to rebuild would be about $130,000 – and it has now received most of the money. But, after 10 months much remains to be done. In fact, Torbeck said her insurance company refused to pay anything more to the restoration company after the first of the year. “I don’t have bathrooms yet, there’s no showers, no tubs, the kitchen isn’t finished, the flooring is not finished. There’s no way we could be living here now,” she said. The company’s contract with Torbeck calls for it to get all necessary permits

a n d inspections, so I asked her a b o u t that. “ I called to get inspecHoward Ain tions for Hey Howard! the electric a l , plumbing and sewer,” Torbeck said. “I was told I could not schedule those because we do not have any active permits on the house. “There’s a pending permit posted on the front window. It’s a form from Hamilton County. But, when I called on it, they told me it was never finalized,” she

said. I called the restoration company and the owner told me the county had approved all the work. But, when I called, building department officials told me although permits were applied for they were never approved. The department even sent a list of required changes to get the permit approved, but officials said they never heard back from the company. Now Torbeck is working

with her insurance company to bring in new contractors to finish the house. She said she’s learned a valuable lesson: carefully check out a fire restoration company – and consult an attorney before signing any contract. The morning after a fire all you want to do is get a contractor to board up the property and nothing more. In addition, for any major reconstruction always get your own expert to regularly inspect the work.


You can hire an ASHI Certified Home Inspector or a licensed, professional engineer depending on the type of work to be performed.

Have a full house with King cake, jambalaya on Mardi Gras Ever since we put salad greens, radishes and peas in the cold frame and plowed the garden, I’ve been anxious for warm weather so I can start some serious gardening. Turning the calendar from February to March means I’ve had it with winter, even though Mother Nature does not usually cooperate. The onset of Mardi Gras and Lent is a good barometer for letting us know that spring is not that far away.

Easy King cake for Mardi Gras

Let the kids help with this. Traditional King cake is a yeasted cake, and I’m sharing a recipe for that in my online column at (search “Heikenfeld”). You’re supposed to share the cake with friends and family. The oval shape represents the unity of faiths. The colored sugars are typi-


cal Mardi Gras colors: purple for justice, green for faith and gold for power. T h e Rita p l a s t i c Heikenfeld baby repRita’s kitchen r e s e n t s b a b y J e s u s . Whoever finds the baby in their piece of cake is blessed with good luck. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.


1 loaf frozen bread dough, thawed completely 1 ⁄2 cup sugar Cinnamon, about 3 tablespoons 1 ⁄2 cup finely chopped pecans (opt.) Melted butter


2 cups powdered sugar 2 teaspoons vanilla 4-6 tablespoons water or

milk Green, purple and yellow colored sugars Tiny plastic baby On a lightly floured surface, roll the bread dough into a 9-by-11 rectangle. (If it snaps back at you, let it rest a bit and then proceed). Brush with melted butter. Mix the sugar, cinnamon and nuts together and scatter the mixture all over. Starting at the long end, roll up tightly. Shape into an oval and lay on sprayed cookie sheet, seam side down. Brush with more melted butter. Bake until golden brown, approximately 30 minutes. Hide the baby in the cake after it has cooled a bit. You can do this by inserting it in the bottom. Make frosting and after cake has cooled, pour the glaze over. Immediately sprinkle with colored sugars, giving each color their own section on the cake. You may have glaze left. It keeps in the fridge for a

Eggless cake tip from Annie Hoffman

Reader Annie Hoffman shares this good tip for box cakes sans eggs. “For a good cake just use regular cake mix, the oil required and use a can of diet soda to replace the eggs and water. “Diet soda works better than the regular, you can use either one. Just use a flavor that compliments your cake for example, use diet sprite for white, yellow or lemon cake mix, diet cherry cola, diet cola or diet chocolate for chocolate ones. “Make sure to only use the amount of soda in a can not a bottle. If you buy the bottle just measure it out.”

Chicken and sausage jambalaya Go to taste on this.

1 pound Cajun style smoked sausage or regular smoked sausage, cut into 1⁄4inch slices 2-3 ribs celery, chopped 1 medium to large onion, chopped 1 teaspoon garlic or more to taste, minced 1 green bell pepper, chopped 3-4 cups cooked diced chicken 32 oz. chicken broth 11⁄4 cups Uncle Ben’s converted rice Cajun seasoning to taste: start with 2-3 teaspoons Salt to taste Tomato slices and thinly sliced green onions for garnish Film bottom of pan with olive oil. Sauté sausage, celery, onion, garlic and green pepper over medium heat until vegetables are tender, about 10 minutes.

“That’s it, I am so out of here!” Nosey cried, running toward the door. I had just admonished her for sneaking into the bathroom and chewing up the toilet paper for the third time that day. “You’re not going anywhere,” I replied firmly. “Yes, I am!” she declared, a piece of toilet paper still hanging from her mouth. “Now open that darned door, I’m going to find another home.” “One where they will let you tear up the toilet paper?” I asked. “Amongst other things,” she said, testily. “Just let me walk down the street, with this face I’ll have another home in five minutes, tops!” If only it were that easy for pets to find new homes. Just last weekend my friend Joellen Ivey of Greenhills called to tell me a sad story. One of her neighbors died

suddenly and no one knew what to do with his three dogs. His next of kin lives out of town and even she didn’t know what to do. “The police and coroner wanted to take the pets to the S.P.C.A. immediately,” Joellen said. “We didn’t want that to happen, so neighbors stepped up and agreed to let the pets stay with them for at least the night until the niece could arrive.” The next morning, Joellen started calling rescue organizations and was gratified by how many called back and offered to help. “It hurts to lose a neighbor,” she said, “But honestly, seeing those pets adrift was heart rending. Working to find a solution made me see how important my circle of friends are and how important having a conversation with my own family about who is going to take my pets if something hap-

Menagerie According to The Humane Society of the United States, the nation’s largest animal protection organization, too many animals end up in shelters because their owners have failed to make provisions for them after their deaths. To address this, they have created a document called, “Providing for Your Pet’s Future Without You.” This fact sheet includes legal language for wills and trusts and suggestions on how to protect pets through power of attorney. It is available at: For information, call 202-452-1100 or email This has certainly made my husband, Tom, and I consider what would happen to Nosey if we were to pass away. Our circumstances have changed through the years. We are now older, he is 63, I am 51. Nosey will live 13-18 years. Potentially he will be 81 and me 69 when she reaches the end of her lifespan. Right now we are in good health, but what if that changes? His parents are gone, his brothers and sisters live far away. My parents are elderly and not in the best of health. I had always assumed that they would take care of my pets if something were to happen to me, but I no longer have that luxury. I am an only child with no real close relatives. We are currently in the process of asking a younger niece (who is currently our heir) to agree to take Nosey, determining what the plan is and taking action by making an appointment with our attorney to make an amendment to our wills. We pamper and spoil our pets. Just imagine how you would feel if your precious cat, dog, ferret or bird were to go homeless because you didn’t think ahead.

Green Twp. fire dept. trains with Good Sam By Kurt Backscheider


Ronald McDonald House Charities of Greater Cincinnati Executive Director Jennifer Goodin and Tom Hilgeman from Dillard’s with a check Dillard’s from the money raised during the holiday season.

Dillard’s cookbook sales help Ronald McDonald charity

Ronald McDonald House Charities of Greater Cincinnati received a record-high donation from local Dillard’s stores. The donation of nearly $30,000 – -enough to underwrite 322 over-night stays at the house – comes from sales of a holiday cookbook available at Dillard’s last December. The Western Hills Dillard's store, as well as four other local Dillard's, participated. Dillard’s executive Tom Hilgeman presented the

check to Ronald McDonald House Executive Director Jennifer Goodin during a tour of the house. “We’re so grateful to our local Dillard’s stores and the individuals that purchased the cookbook. This donation wouldn’t be possible without the tremendous support of our Cincinnati communities,” said Goodin. Part of a national campaign, Dillard’s Inc. has donated more than $1.7 million to local chapters of Ronald McDonald House Charities through sales of

the exclusive Southern Living Christmas Cookbook. The hard-bound cookbook featured 288 pages with over 340 delicious holiday recipes and ideas. With this year’s record-high contribution Dillard’s has donated over $7.6 million to Ronald McDonald House since 1994. Locally, this year’s campaign raised $10,000 more than last year’s.

Foundation gives UC $1 million for Lifelong Learning Institute The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at the University of Cincinnati received a surprise at its annual holiday luncheon. UC President Gregory Williams announced the Bernard Osher Foundation’s $1 million endowment gift to support the enhancement of UC’s continuing education program for active adults in the Greater Cincinnati area. “On behalf of OLLI’s staff, volunteers and members, we sincerely appreciate the continuing support from the University of Cincinnati and the Osher Foundation,” said OLLI program director Fred Bassett. “This gift will allow us to continue sharing UC’s vast educational resources with Cincinnati’s aging community by giving them access to stimulating classes and advanced learning opportunities,” he said. “The university is proud to be a partner of OLLI and we are so grateful for the Osher Foundation’s tremendous generosity and willingness to invest in lifelong learning,” Williams said. OLLI offers, on average,

100 courses each quarter led by expert teachers in a relaxed, informal environment – and no need to worry about tests or grades. Offerings range from personal enrichment courses on philosophy, science, literature, and history to practical courses related to health, personal finance and computer usage. “The nature and variety of educational opportunities at UC’s Osher Institute are impressive,” said Osher Foundation president, Mary Bitterman. “The program consistently provides a rich and meaningful array of learning activities for seasoned adults in the Greater Cincinnati Area and we are delighted to provide this permanent support for such an outstanding program,” she said. This year’s gift follows a history of support from the Osher Foundation – one that began in 2007 when UC’s institute received a $100,000 gift and officially took the name of Osher. That gift was followed by a second $100,000 award in 2008, and a $1 million

endowment and two additional gifts totaling $75,000 in 2009. Collectively, the funding helps OLLI supplement what is otherwise a mostly volunteer-driven operation. “We are deeply grateful to Mr. and Mrs. Osher and their foundation for this wonderful vote of confidence,” said OLLI board chairperson Tom Noonan. “Despite a record enrollment of 1,025 in 156 courses this past fall, the institute still is managed by a paid staff of just two. The Osher Foundation and our volunteers form a tremendous support system for OLLI and are the glue that holds us together,” he said. Lifelong learning has been part of UC’s programmatic offerings for more than 20 years. The UC institute is one of 118 nationwide Osher Lifelong Learning Institutes and is one of the oldest, largest, and most successful programs for active adults in the U.S. For more information about OLLI or to register for a winter quarter class, visit

The Green Township Department of Fire & EMS got an assist from the staff at Good Samaritan Medical Center at Western Ridge when conducting its mandatory emergency medical services training this year. District Chief Tom Dietz, who is in charge of the department’s emergency medical services, said each year firefighters/emergency medical technicians and paramedics are retrained in CPR and other routine procedures, and also receive instruction and practice some infrequently used skills. This year the staff from the new medical center in Green Township arranged for the firefighters to practice working with babies on a computerized infant simulator that mimics the response of a real baby. Dietz said treating infants is a “high risk, low volume” skill set. “The procedures are complicated and we rarely have the opportunity to perform them,” he said. “Fortunately we don’t get called to treat ill babies very often.” He said performing procedures on an infant can be very stressful because firefighters and paramedics aren’t used to working with infants, but at the same time they want to do everything they can to save the child. Dietz said the infant simulator Good Sam provided was incredibly helpful for their training. “You could look at the baby and actually see the changes taking place,” he said. “It was very realistic.” Pam Erpenbeck, a staff nurse and the emergency medical services coordinator for Good Sam at Western Ridge, worked with the neonatal intensive care unit at Good Sam in Clifton to bring the infant simulator to the township’s four training sessions. She said the simulator – named Baby Hal – has a pulse, it breathes, it cries and even turns blue when it needs oxygen. The computer presents all the vital signs of an actual human being. “It gives them an opportunity to practice in a realistic fashion what it’s like to resuscitate an infant, and they can see the real-time results,” Erpenbeck said. She said she’s received a lot of positive feedback from firefighters, who have told her the training gives them a great deal of confidence when they are out in the field. She said she’s been contacted by several neighboring fire departments to see if she can bring the sim-

Playhouse gets $90,000 grant from NEA Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park is the recipient of a $90,000 grant from the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA). This is the largest grant ever received by the Playhouse from the NEA. The Playhouse is one of two theatres in the country to receive the award. The grant will be used to support the final development and production of

“Behind the Eye by Carson Kreitzer. The play will receive its world premiere on the Thompson Shelterhouse stage April 2 through May 1, 2011. In addition, the grant will be used for accompanying education activities, including a public forum with Kreitzer discussing the development of the play. The Playhouse will use social media to share the

development process with the public. This remarkable new play chronicles the life of World War II photographer Lee Miller, a woman at the center of some of the most exciting times of the 20th century. From a Vogue model in the ’20s to muse of the Paris Surrealists in the ’30s, she then became an acclaimed war photogra-

pher, covering the front lines as well as the London Blitz and the liberation of Paris. “Behind the Eye” follows Miller’s fascinating adventures and her personal struggle of what to do with yourself when you’ve done it all. For a complete list of NEA funding grants totaling $26.68 million, visit

We believe

We have said before that we are proud to be a locally owned and family run Funeral Home. We would like to share with you some of our beliefs... We believe that our first duty to the families in our community is to serve our friends with a professional, yet a caring and personal attitude. Dignity, understanding, honesty and value are our traditions. We believe that each service should be offered in accordance with each family’s individual point of view. And this means not imposing ideas, but accepting the family’s wishes and offering advice when it is requested. We believe it is our duty to provide our services within a wide range of prices that every family can afford. We believe what we do is important to every family and how we do it is important to us... Every detail of a funeral service is important to us. To Those We Serve We Pledge: confidential business and professional relationships; cooperation with customs of all religions and creeds; observance of all respect due the deceased; the highest standards of competence and dignity in the conduct of all services; truthful representation of all services and merchandising.
