OH career expo aims to connect students, jobs By Kurt Backscheider

Oak Hills High School is giving its graduating seniors an opportunity to meet with employers and possibly find jobs or internships. The high school is hosting its inaugural Highlander Job & Career Expo from 8:15-10:15 a.m. Thursday, March 27, in the school gym, 3200 Ebenezer Road. “Part of our mission statement at Oak Hills talks about career and college readiness for all students,” said Robert Sehlhorst, the district’s assistant superintendent for curriculum and instruction. “We want to build a bridge from the island of school to the world of work.” He said school leaders talk often with area business owners who have expressed a desire to hire young people who possess math competencies, strong work ethic and the ability to take direction and work in teams. “We know we have lots of students who have those skills,” he said. “We felt an obligation to connect them to potential employers.” The high school hopes to have 50 businesses and organizations represented at the expo, and Sehlhorst said they have 35 companies signed up to participate so far. Business owners and employers will have the opportunity to share information about their companies and discuss

‘BEATLEMANIA’ By Kurt Backscheider

DELHI TWP. — Fifty years ago this month, four moptopped musicians from Liverpool flew across the Atlantic to perform on the Ed Sullivan Show in New York City. The Beatles – John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr – had plans to crack the United States pop market, a feat no other British band had accomplished up to that point. When the Fab Four took to the stage on the “Ed Sullivan Show” Feb. 9, 1964, they did more than crack the market. They shattered it. As a result, “Beatlemania” spread like wildfire throughout the country, and teens and young people here in Cincinnati were among those who couldn’t get enough of the group’s hit songs. “It was quite a time,” said Hamilton County Auditor

“And it will probably never happen again.” Rhodes fondly recalls those “Beatlemania” years in the early 1960s. After all, he and his fellow WSAI disc jockeys were responsible for bringing The Beatles to town in the summer of 1964. The Delhi Township resident said “Skinny” Bobby Harper, Paul Purtan, Mark Edwards, Steve Kirk and himself, who all worked at the radio station and were called the “Good Guys,” were having a drink after work one evening and got to talking about sending a telegram to England asking The Beatles to make Cincinnati a stop on their U.S. tour. “We said, ‘Let’s give it a shot,’” Rhodes said. “It came out of nowhere.” They sent the telegram and The Beatles and their manager agreed to play in CincinSee RHODES, Page A2

‘Dueling Bartenders’ returns to Price Hill By Kurt Backscheider

PRICE HILL — Bar tending bragging rights will once again be on the line at The Crow’s Nest. Price Hill Will is sponsoring the second “Dueling Bartenders of Price Hill” fundraiser at the neighborhood watering hole on the corner of West Eighth Street and Nebraska Avenue. The event runs 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday, March 11. The first “Dueling Bartenders” fundraiser took place at the bar this past October and was quite successful. Price Hill resident Cyndy Driehaus, a Price Hill Will board member and chair of the organization’s fundraising committee, said it raised more than $1,000 for Price Hill Will’s summer youth photography program and the MYCincinnati youth orchestra program. The inaugural duel pitted the Rev. Andrew Umberg, pastor of

their career opportunities with the more than 650 students in this year’s graduating class at Oak Hills, he said. Students will be able to learn Sehlhorst more about area businesses, ask career exploration questions of employers and sign up for interviews that will take place for two hours following the expo. Sehlhorst said the goal is to have at least 200 students land full- or part-time jobs, internships, co-ops, seasonal jobs or volunteer positions. Some of the companies who will attend the expo include Beacon Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine, The Christ Hospital, Lowe’s, Chipotle, HGC Construction and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, he said. “We’re going to have a wide range of employers who will have the opportunity to meet our seniors,” he said. “We have many outstanding students who will be exemplary employees if given the opportunity.” In conjunction with the expo, Sehlhorst said seniors will receive career training during their Tartan Time homeroom periods, where they will learn job application processes and tips for writing resumes and job interviews. “I think it’s unique.

A young disc jockey, Rhodes said he didn’t have $5,000 simply lying around, so he had to take out a loan at the Central Trust bank branch in Price Hill. His father-in-law cosigned the promissory

note. Rhodes said they received word in April 1964 the group would be in town for an Aug. 27 concert at the Cincinnati Gardens, and the “Good Guys” immediately began promoting the concert on the air. The radio station, which was located next to the Price Hill Incline, was receiving 300 pieces of mail each day from rabid fans requesting tickets to the concert and asking to meet the band, he said. “Those Price Hill studios were the center of the Cincinnati radio world. We were ground zero for The Beatles,” Rhodes said. “Everybody had an idea that they just had to meet Paul or they had to meet Ringo.” When Aug. 27 finally arrived, he said rumors started flying about when

and where the group would come into town. He said teens were flocked outside the radio station hoping The Beatles would make an appearance there, while others waited at the Anderson Ferry because they figured the group would land at the airport across the river and take the ferry over. Rhodes said the band flew in to Lunken Airport and landed around 3 p.m., not long before the concert. “They were really in and out,” he said. They were in town long enough to witness the hysteria at the Gardens. “It was the most incredible thing you ever saw. It was mayhem,” Rhodes said. “It was huge. It was really huge, and you couldn’t hear a thing at the concert due to all the screaming.” He said they sold

is the season… Yo u r c h i l d i s hot, flushed, has no appetite, is listless, has diarrhea or vomiting, has a runny or congested nose and sounds like your Saint Bernard. OK, so it’s this flu thing - it has been “going around” you say. These words reverberate through our Centre every day. Some people take peace that other children are also afflicted. There seems to be some kind of safety in numbers it seems. The other thing that we as a society have been taught is that this child is sick.

Yes, absolutely! There is no question in our minds. This is “sickness” at its best. But wait… Let’s look at this in some detail. Your child has a fever. This is actually a good thing. It is your body’s way of literally “burning” the bug. It is also the result of all the necessary body activities kicked into high gear to fight for survival. All this extra work produces extra heat - Fever. It is that simple. At the same time, however, the eyes take on a glassy appearance - the result of being continually washed

with tears to cool down the cornea, which is very heat sensitive. In its wisdom, your child’s body may want to get rid of this germ really fast - diarrhea and vomiting comes to mind. There isn’t a quicker way! This is good! Yo u r c h i l d m a y b e competing with your Saint Bernard. It is simply another portal of exit for the germs that have invaded his body. Breathing and respiration also increase - your child literally exhales the invading organism faster. You’ll notice that the skin is moist and clammy - simply another method of exit for the bugs. At the same time, however, you notice that your child has no appetite. Even McDonald’s, his alltime fave gives him the heebie-jeebies. The reason is that his body energy is geared towards survival and is on emergency stand-by. There is no energy wasted digesting food.

You, by now, are probably thinking, “I didn’t know that.” There you have it - the logic behind the scenes. Pretty amazing isn’t it? In case you didn’t know this, your nervous system, that amazing computer-Internet complex that runs all of you, is responsible for all this marvellous activity. It is the system that causes your immune system to spring into action to protect you - any way it can. This is not “sickness.” It is an expression of health. It is your body doing exactly what it needs to do, in order to regain your health. I am not saying you have to like it, though, but it is, nevertheless, in your best interests. When your child is feeling like this, parents have the compulsion to intervene and interfere with this process u n k n ow i n g l y - c o u g h suppressants, anti-fever medication, antibiotics, etc.

We h a v e b e e n carefully taught that a child needs these drugs to be healthy. Nonsense! Your child simply needs no interference. There are a number of things you can do, however, to help your child while his/her body is “doing its thing”; A. H ave yo u r c h i l d checked by a chiropractor to make cer tain his ner vous system is functioning optimally so it can handle this “sickness” thing. B. High doses of Vitamin C. For a young child, I recommend 1000-2000 mg/day for a week. For adults, 5000-7000. C. Lots to drink. Water is best but kids don’t like it. You can use diluted fruit juice. D. Lots of rest and veg’ing out.

The deadline for businesses to register for the expo is Thursday, March 13. Employers who want to register or learn more can do so at They can also call Oak Hills’ assistant principals Doug Geygan or Tara Willig at 922-2300. “Help us fill the gym with potential employers so that we can create opportunities for our grads,” Buckley said.

E. Echinacea in drop form in a bit of juice. Do for a week. F. Zinc lozenges. Use as a last resort. Taste awful for kids.

Seitz lauded by American Conservative Union

State Sen. Bill Seitz (R-8 th District) was named a “Defender of Liberty,” by the American Conservative Union. It is the highest award given by the national organization, which grades federal and state legislators’ voting records as they relate to traditionally conservative principles. Seitz was one of only three senators in the Ohio Senate to receive a 100 percent scorecard. “In the Statehouse, I’ve been working for many years to bring about a more robust private sector and a stronger economy for all Ohioans,” Seitz said. “We have been working to streamline our regulatory processes, reduce burdensome taxes and create an environment that fosters and welcomes job creation. I’m grateful to be recognized for these efforts, but it’s important to note that these are not just principles that are traditionally conservative, they, quite simply, serve as the foundation of the American Dream.”

St. X captain’s efforts help bring state ‘Victory’ in pool By Adam Turer

There are many reasons why St. Xavier High School has dominated Ohio high school swimming for decades, but the biggest key to the AquaBombers’ six straight Division I state championships and 15 titles in the last 16 years might come down to one simple practice: Belief. Believing in the program, the coaches, and one another has turned several ordinary swimmers into medalists and champions by the time they were seniors. Oliver Acomb, a St. Xavier senior from Delhi and Our Lady of Victory parish, is the most recent example of hard work turning a struggling swimmer into a champion. After playing football in the fall of his freshman year, Acomb decided to join the swim team for the winter season. The AquaBombers do not make cuts, but do have three levels of practice groups based on skill and experience. Acomb was in the third group, and was an unassuming member on a stacked team. Nobody knew yet how much he would progress over his four years. “Ollie joined the team with the encouragement of others and wanted to be a part of something he had heard good things about,” said head coach Jim Brower. “As he matured, Ollie became a very good athlete and has the kind of explosiveness necessary to compete at the level he is currently competing.” As a member of a state championship team, Acomb quickly learned how and why the AquaBombers have been able to maintain consistent champion performances. He was motivated to reach the level of the Group 1 swimmers and was encouraged that he could get there someday. “The upperclassmen and coaches supported and guided me,” said Acomb. “Their belief in me helped me believe in my-


Oak Hills’ Chesney finishes 4th all-around at state By Jarrod Ulrey Gannett News Service

St. Xavier captain Oliver Acomb finished fifth with a lifetime best in the 100 breaststroke final. Right before his swim, St Xavier was in jeopardy of losing to Toledo St Francis.

self.” After attending the state championship meet in Canton as a spectator to cheer on his veteran teammates, he made a commitment to himself that one day he would compete in

Canton in late February. He began working out early mornings at the Powel Crosley Jr. YMCA and worked hard in the pool year-round. “Ollie is just one example of a swimmer who bought into the

idea that ‘it’s not where you are, but the direction you are headed,’” said Brower. “He was motivated by his own improvement and a desire to help our See SWIM, Page A7

HILLIARD, OH — Considering she was a Level 9 competitor before quitting club gymnastics, Oak Hills senior Paige Chesney has been in her share of intense meets. Nevertheless, her first experience at the state meet Saturday at Hilliard Bradley was something that she knows she’ll never forget. With three scores better than 9.0, Chesney finished fourth all-around with a 36.5 behind Brecksville-Broadview Heights’ Alecia Farina (38.325), Macedonia Nordonia’s Monica Batton (38) and Lodi Cloverleaf’s Madeline Brandt (36.85). “This was my first time at high school state, and the energy is crazy,” Chesney said. “It makes you excited. It’s really fun.” Chesney’s best performance came on floor, where she scored 9.275. She also scored 9.25 on vault, 9.025 on bars and 8.95 on beam. “I got my personal-best on floor and bars and tied for my personal-best on vault,” Chesney said. “I had a really good meet. It was a blast.” Chesney was one of four area gymnasts in the individual state meet.

Elder’s Conners finishes 6th in state wrestling By Tom Skeen

In his first trip to the Division I state tournament, Elder High School senior Jake Conners notched a sixth-place finish in the 152-pound weight class. Conners opened up the state tournament with a 5-2 victory, but lost 10-5 in his championship quarterfinals match sending him to the consolation bracket. The senior rebounded with backto-back victories, including a 6-0 decision over Lakota West’s Kevin Leonhardt, sending him to the consolation semifinals where he lost 10-4 to to J.P. Newton of Perrysburg High School. In the final match of his Elder career, Conners wrestled for fifth place but was pinned at the 4:00 mark by Andrew McNally of Uniontown Lake High School. Fellow Panther Evan Morgan had a disappointing state meet. The senior lost his opening round match 8-7 at 138 pounds, but rebounded with a 7-3 win before bowing out of the tournament with a1-0 loss to Gavin Nelson of Oregon Clay High School. Morgan finishes his career with 126 wins, fourth most all-time in Elder school history.

La Salle sent four wrestlers to Columbus, all making their first appearance at the state tournament. Freshman Corey Shie turned in the best performance locking up a fifth-place finish at 120 pounds. Shie won his first two matches before losing to eventual state champion Alex Mackall of Cuyahoga Falls Walsh Jesuit High School 17-9 in the championship semifinals. The freshman lost his next match 9-3 to Austin Assad of Brecksville sending him to the fifth-place match where Josh Heil defaulted the victory to Shie. Both freshman Eric Beck and junior John Shirkey went 1-2 in their first trip to Columbus, while freshman Andrew Sams went 2-2. In perhaps the greatest single season in St. Xavier High School history, senior Joe Heyob won the Division I state title at 170 pounds to finish the season at 50-0. “I feel like I just finished a book,” Heyob said to Gannett News Service. “No, make it a chapter – a long chapter – because I have more to do.” Heyob - who will wrestle at the University of Pennsylvania

next season - defeated Jesse Palser of Mansfield Senior High School 3-2 in an ultimate tiebreaker. “(Palser) was really strong in his upper body…. brute strength,” said Heyob of his opponent. “I just tried to lock up a leg and get the other ankle.” With the victory, Heyob became just the second individual state wrestling champion in school history and the first in 24 years. It was his ability to stay cool, calm and collected in front of 12,000-plus fans that helped him reach a goal that’s been four years in the making.

“The environment here is so overwhelming,’’ Heyob said. “I just envisioned being back in my living room wrestling my brothers. I think the environment was the biggest factor I had to get out of my head.” Joe’s little brother was there to witness his state title.

Unified Basketball not about winning, losing By Mark D. Motz

INDIAN HILL — Squeaking shoes were barely audible over fans squealing with delight. Players squealed gleefully, too, for that matter. More than 100 Hamilton County Special Olympians descended on the two gyms at Cincinnati Country Day School for

Unified Basketball Day Feb. 20. The 16 teams of middle and high school players from Rapid Run, Harrison, St. Bernard and Oak Hills also included varsity companions from CCD and Oak Hills High School. The varsity players took turns officiating, playing, running clocks, operating scoreboards and simply cheering for their Special Olympic

guests. “You get to see how happy they are just to play,” said Sean O’Brien, a CCD sophomore. “It teaches you to appreciate what you’ve been given. I’m lucky to able to play every day. “It’s hard to imagine what these kids have to deal with every day, the challenges they face. They’re still happy every

WESTWOOD — Without

a heartbeat there is no life. Without Allie Ramsey, the Mother of Mercy basketball team looked lifeless for the first 16 minutes of their Division I district final game against Centerville March 1 at Harrison High School. Ramsey broke her foot in a win over Winton Woods Feb. 22, but without her nine points and, more importantly, her more than eight rebounds per game, the Bobcats were outmatched against the ninth-ranked team in the state throughout the first half. Mercy cut an 18-point halftime deficit down to five with less than seven minutes left in the game, but the Elks outscored the Bobcats15-6 over the final five-plus minutes en route to a 64-50 win. “That first quarter we just let them take charge and you can’t do that in a game like this or any game,” coach Mary Jo Huismann said. Ramsey suited up for the second half, likely more for motivational purposes, but it wasn’t enough to get the Bobcats over the hump. “I just think Allie Ramsey is the vocal heart of the team,” Huismann said. “She doesn’t do everything right, but she tries like crazy and I think it just let the wind out when she couldn’t play.” Mercy outshot the Elks, but were outrebounded 49-28, mainly due to the efforts of Centerville’s 6-foot-5 junior

team. I had a similar experience in high school, so it is easy for me to see the potential in all of our athletes who get into the sport after entering high school.” After being elected captain prior to his senior season, Acomb felt even more of a responsibility to encourage the underclassmen and continue the St. Xavier tradition of paving the way for the next class of state champions. According to Acomb, 17 of the 18 seniors on this year’s team began in Group 2 or 3 before working their way up to Group 1. He wanted to inspire the underclassmen the same way he was inspired as a sore, tired, freshman. “If you can work your butt off, you can get to

time they make a shot. It makes it hard to have a bad day at practice when you think about these kids and what they have to do just to get on the court.” Oak Hills senior Andrew Chisholm agreed. “I think it’s great,” he said after refereeing a game. “The best thing is definitely the look on their faces after they make a basket. It’s pure happi-

ness. I’ve learned they’re not worried about winning or losing. Sometimes it’s just about having fun.” And more. “Today is not about who wins and loses,” said Janet Smith, executive director of the Hamilton County Special Olympics. “It’s about giving these kids a chance to play for an extended period of time. It’s about working together

center Shannon Coffee, who finished with 24 points and 12 rebounds. “We had to slow her down,” Huismann said of Coffee. “Usually it takes three people to slow someone like that down. You don’t let her get the ball (and) you don’t let her go to this side or that side.” One bright side is Huismann was able to play and expose some of her younger players to Division I basketball at its highest level. “You see what type of intensity it takes and trying to tell kids that, they don’t understand that,” the coach said. “They aren’t going to experience any of that anywhere else.” The loss marks the end of the career for Emily

Budde, who owns the school record for most three-pointers made in a single game, as well as the single season scoring average with the 17.1 points per game she averaged as a senior. “Talk about somebody that’s just done great this year,” Huismann said. “… She’s a pure shooter and she’s got her composure. She’s had a great career.” Budde is one of four seniors – Haley Dannemiller, Olivia Schad and Ramsey – who’ve been playing together since their freshmen seasons. It’s a group Huismann is going to miss. “They helped us build back up and we have some young kids and hopefully they learned from (the seniors).”

wherever you want to go,” said Acomb. “Just look at the older kids that have worked their way up through the ranks.” After placing third in the 100-yard breaststroke and placing second as a member of the AquaBombers 200-yard medley relay at the district meet, Acomb realized his dream of competing in the state meet in Canton. He entered his final varsity meet on Feb. 22 knowing that he had one final chance to make his mark on the storied program. He shaved over a full second off of his breaststroke time from districts and placed fifth in the state with a personal-best time of 57.70. “I had a chip on my shoulder to achieve my goals knowing it was my senior year,” said Acomb. “My last race, I had some extra adrenaline that pushed me.” It was an emotional

race, not just because it was his final laps as an AquaBomber. His fifthplace finish, after starting in eighth place, put his team in a position to clinch the championship with a fourth-place finish or better in the final relay of the meet. His teammates got the job done, and Acomb stood on a podium three years after cheering from the stands. “Ollie is well-liked and well-respected by all of the coaches and his teammates. He seemed to enjoy every step of the journey, and he truly cared about the team above his own ambitions,” said Brower. “He was elected team captain before he had a breakout season, and that says a lot about his character. We will miss him dearly.” The former Delhi Press carrier is still deciding on his college choice, but plans on swimming at the next level.

» La Salle pounded Edgewood 76-36, Feb. 25 before taking down Mason 65-48, Feb. 28 to advance to the Division I district finals March 8 where they face Trotwood Madison at Xavier University. Senior Jeff Larkin scored a game-high 21

points in the win over Mason, while younger brother, Jeremy, finished with 18. Senior Tim Bell scored 16 points to go with his six rebounds.

It was with great interest that I read the article about the sand mine in Sayler Park (Feb. 19 Delhi Press and Price Hill Press). I can add some facts and names to the history. You see, the plat of land the Western Wildlife Corridor is on is the Nicholas Fliehman plat, my great-great grandfather. He originally owned a great deal of property in Sayler Park and particularly along Hillside Avenue. In fact, in property records today, lots are still referred to as being part of the Fliehman subdivision. Irene Fliehman, Nicholas’ granddaughter, married Fred Paff and came to live on the property now referred to as the Paff property. His grandson, Jacob J. Fliehman, my grandfather, lived next door and next to that property lived my great grandfather and Nicholas’ son, Jacob W. Fliehman. There were many other Fliehmans in Sayler Park, as Nicholas had three children. Jacob W. Fliehman had a financial stake in the mine, owning access to it, working it in, and, unfortunately, dying in it when a sand bank collapsed on him in 1935. I am not sure if he is the “worker” that was mentioned in the article, or if that was another poor soul. My grandmother, Anna Westrich Fliehman, sold their house and property in the late 1960s after my grandfather passed away, but I can remember playing on the hills behind their house on Hillside Avenue as a small child with my cousins. My half-brother remembers hunting up on the hillside with my father, before the Martini subdivision was ever thought of. As chance would have it, girls ran in this branch of the Fliehman family; Jacob W. had one son and three daughters, Jacob J. had one surviving son and four daughters, and my father, Franklin J. Fliehman (Nick) had me. Though the name has faded through the generations, the descendents of Jacob W. Fliehman continue to have fond memories of, pride in and ties to Sayler Park. Thank you, Ms. Kamuf, for the article. I enjoy reading your columns. Lynn Fliehman Richmond Westwood

Sister Ann retires?

The other day, as I was gazing at a smiley picture of Jesus, there came an inspiration, that how could I not share with others, an appreciation for the many years of service you, sister Ann Ryan, has given us. For those of you who don’t Sister Ann know Sister Ryan Ann, O.P., and I must stress O.P., because that determines how much she gets paid. Yes, those who don’t know it, nuns, are like government workers, their high-paying salaries are also set-up on a scale of self-progress, as determined by their superiors, and eventually God in heaven.

director of pastoral care. Sister’s rare ability working with people, some as bull-headed as she, and those who learned not to get in her way, for the betterment of improving their souls, and the laughter she left with them, is second to none. Having known Sister Ann for a number of glorious years, I can continue to have fun with her, because she practiced her gift with professionalism, standing up for her (our) Christian beliefs with pen and example. Why I remember the time she balled me out for my wasting water dripping from a faucet! And, some of you might remember the time she took on a local politician for bashing the Sisters of Charity – leaving the political world dumb-founded and short on words! In a man’s world that took some you know what! Oops, before I get into a friendly scolding from Sister, might I remind everyone, Sister Ann is not intending on triple-dipping! Because of the many sacrifices she and her constituents have given us, their next reward will be in a place where most of us hope to ascend! May God bless you, and keep you in the palm of his hand. Thanks. Bill Keenan Delhi Township

The who, why behind immigration

Price Hill has historically been a neighborhood of immigrants; many have fled conflict or poverty. Simple markers on Irish graves along West Eighth often include the names of home counties left during the Potato Famine in the 1800s. Not long ago “Little Saigon” flourished around St. Lawrence Corner, where Vietnamese refugees were resettled. Without our newest immigrant neighbors, Price Hill would be struggling economically. Hundreds of apartments would be empty, Kroger’s business would plummet, and many industries around Cincinnati, from hospitality to light manufacturing, would also be in trouble. I recently accompanied several Guatemalan friends to Cleveland for asylum hearings: a gang member had sliced up the man with a bro-

ken bottle after failing to recruit him; the young woman had fled acute domestic violence, including attempted rape, and grinding poverty. I met 15-year-old Lilian, whose family’s shack was destroyed by an earthquake. Her father is a drunk and her mother, a farm laborer, earns $1.98 a day. Unable to feed six children, the mother sent Lilian to a very uncertain future in the U.S., knowing she might be raped, kidnapped into sexual slavery, or die in the desert. As a mother, I cannot even imagine how desperate I would have to be to make such a decision. I am encouraged that the House Republican leadership is taking on the issue of immigration, because legislation can reform our current unworkable and cruel system. Although immigrants’ most immediate concern is to come out of the shadows and work and drive legally, I believe that a reasonable path to citizenship is essential. The U.S. cannot deliberately create a permanent underclass, trapped in low-paying jobs and unable to vote. Listening to the harrowing stories of my friends, I recognize we must also take a hard look at the root causes of why people immigrate. How can U.S. policies address the issues which drive people to immigrate?

Police station needed where it is

It is sad knowing that the headquarters of Cincinnati Police District 3 will be relocating. It had been suggested by residents of East Price Hill that the best solution would be to create an addition to the rear of the current building into the existing parking lot and relocate the parking lot to the west where the Dempsey Pool formerly stood. Purcell Avenue could have provided the necessary means of egress and the headquarters could have remained where it has for more than 100 years. The past city administration in their infinite wisdom (thank goodness Mr. Dohoney is no longer city manager) felt that it would make more sense to purchase property (instead of using existing city property at no cost) and build an entirely new building (instead of expanding off of currently used Police Department space). After a recent aggravated burglary attempt against my wife and 8-year-old son a block from the police station and the rapid response and apprehension of the three ignorant individuals, it is clearly evident the importance of retaining the D-3 Police Headquarters in its present location. I know our family is better because of its location and our family is forever grateful to the officers of Cincinnati Police D-3 for their handling of our situation.. I beg the new city administration to reconsider the former administration faulty decision. Dan Boller East Price Hill

Feb. 26 question Local GOP leaders are making a bid to host the Republican National Convention in 2016. Would this be good for the area? Why or why not?

“Economically it would be great for the area. Bring in lots of outside monies. It would also make it easier for correct (not right) minded people of Ohio to do a little protesting against the party of do nothing. Of course they won't care as they have shown a growing disdain for the populace. They, the Republicans, are in office only to serve the wealthy minority and big business.” J.Z.

“Given that Cincinnati is a hotbed of Republican fervor and that Ohio is a key battleground state in every election, why not? Big conventions bring lots of money and attention. Even Democrats and independents should benefit from this. Bring it on. F.S.D.

“Sure! I am not Republican, but any time we can bring more money into Cincinnati, the better it is for our area. “Downtown is really booming these days, particularly Over-the-Rhine, and there are lots of venues for hotels and restaurants, as well as our convention center. I was so pleased with how the city supported the wonderful 'World Choir Games' and the city truly sparkled. “I imagine the security involved will be a headache, however, for those who work or live downtown, but perhaps the advantages will outweigh the disadvantages overall for the reputation of Cincinnati, which can use all the positive press it can

“I think a convention of that size would be a great thing for the economy.” Terry Garvin

“Hosting the Republican National Convention would be good for the city financially in 2016, and it would, more importantly, be a great opportunity for the progressive minded in the area to protest the Party of No once and for all on the national stage. “If it happens, I'll want to be downtown in that outside crowd.” TRog

“It would be perfect. Like Mark Twain said, ‘If the end of the world happens, I want to be in Cincinnati because it will take them 10 years to find out about it.’ Perfect.” C.S.

“I believe a convention of that magnitude would provide a big boost to the local economy. Hopefully it would not generate negative protests such as the 1968 Chicago Democratic convention or groups such as ‘Occupy Wall Street.’” R.V.

Mussel, farro recipes welcome Lent I know I say this just about every year at this time, but I can’t believe it’s already Lent. The wild yellow aconite that our dear friend, Ike Leaf, helped me plant years ago is already up in my woods bordering the river. These two occurrences make me realize that Rita spring will Heikenfeld be a reality RITA’S KITCHEN soon. With the abundance of fresh seafood available this time of year, try new recipes while adding bonus points for your health. Check out my blog for my mom’s salmon patty recipe with cucumber-sour cream sauce.

Give bottom of very large pot a good coating of olive oil. Over medium heat, add shallots and half the garlic. Cook a couple of minutes, don’t let garlic brown. Add mussels and turn heat to high. Stir well to coat and add rest of garlic, and wine. Cook about 5 minutes, or until mussels are opened. Sprinkle with parsley and tomatoes, and serve.

Mussels steamed with white wine and shallots

Farro is an ancient, healthy wheat whose history goes back thousands of years. It comes in several forms. Semi-pearled farro is what I use since it cooks quickly. This complex carbohydrate contains fiber, which helps lower cholesterol better than brown rice, and also helps the immune system, along with helping you feel fuller longer and with more energy.

Delicious with crusty bread to mop up juices or atop linguine. Mussels that are open before cooking should be discarded. Likewise, any that are not open after cooking should be tossed out. Substitute butter for the olive oil if you want. Olive oil ⁄4 cup minced shallots 4 real large cloves garlic, minced 2 pounds cleaned mussels 1 cup dry white wine or more as needed Handful fresh parsley Chopped fresh tomatoes (optional) 1

Tip from Rita’s kitchen

Stockpot or Dutch oven: What’s the difference? A stockpot typically is taller. A Dutch oven has more surface area on the bottom. They both can hold the same amount of food, depending upon the size. TheDutch oven is more versatile.

Farro with onions, garlic and cheese

⁄2 cup onion, chopped 2 garlic cloves, minced 1 cup semi-pearled farro 3 cups liquid (vegetable, chicken or beef broth) Romano or Parmesan cheese 1

Pour in 2 tablespoons or so of olive oil in a pan,

and add onions and garlic. Cook for a few minutes until onions are soft. Add farro and cook until coated and smells fragrant, again about a few minutes. Add liquid, and cook partly covered until farro is done, about 25 minutes. Drain excess liquid if necessary and add salt and pepper. Sprinkle with cheese.

Tips from Rita’s kitchen

Unpearled/hulled farro takes an hour to cook. Stir in frozen mixed vegetables with the farro. Add mushrooms with onions and garlic.
