Family touched by Skirt Game’s help

By Monica Boylson

Doctors didn’t expect Dylan Wuerth to live past his second birthday. The now10-year-old was diagnosed with DOOR Syndrome, a rare genetic disorder that causes deafness, malformation of the nails and some bones and mild to profound mental retardation. “He forgot to read the expiration date on the bottom of his foot,” his nurse Jill McNamara, 51, said over the phone and added. “He’s smiling. You can’t help but love this little boy.” In 2012, McNamara nominated Dylan and his family to the Delhi Skirt Game, in hopes that they would receive a van that could be retrofitted for a wheelchair.

The nonprofit group that raises money for charity granted their wish and they were recognized as one three recipients of gifts at the Delhi Skirt Game in August. Proceeds from the Skirt Game were used to buy the 2007 Chrysler Town & Country Touring Van shortly thereafter. “I was so overwhelmed,” mother Amber Wuerth, 36, said. “The generosity of Delhi and the Skirt Game is amazing.” Once they received the van, they had to get it updated to make it accessible for her son. The Wuerth’s insurance company covered the cost of adapting the van, but there were some hiccups. “The insurance switched from state to county and it really slowed See SKIRT, Page A2

Delhi Twp. — The Delhi Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) is asking township residents if they’re prepared in case of an emergency. “We try to teach the community as much as we can about how to take care of themselves in a disaster,” CERT President Ed Conrad, 51, said. The Delhi resident manages a 28-member group with 15 active reserve members. CERT members are trained in CPR, first aid, fire suppression and learn other organizational skills to assist the police and fire departments in an emergen-

cy situation. “We’re the third line of defense,” he said. FEMA identifies the response team as a “program that supports local response capability by training volunteers to organize themselves and spontaneous volunteers at the disaster site, to provide immediate assistance to victims and to collect disaster intelligence to support responders’ efforts when they arrive.” Delhi Fire Chief Bill Zoz said CERT was instrumental in securing reimbursement from FEMA after a windstorm damaged the township in Sep-

Our Lady of Victory pantry helps families at Easter

See CERT, Page A2

Delhi Twp. — Our Lady of Victory parish volunteers helped pack and deliver boxes of food to 70 families in need for Easter. With assistance by volunteers from the Delhi Township Fire Department, the OLV food pantry was able to give back, volunteer Teresa Humphrey, 69, said. “They’re nice and young and strong,” she said. “The boxes get heavy and in the group of people doing this, five or six are under 70 and several are over 70 and into their 80s. Without their help, I don’t know what we’d do.” The church has operated a pantry since 1989 and they have been working with the firefighters since then. “We’ve had an ongoing relationship with them that’s been wonderful,” she said. “We started with only 10 canned goods and it’s really grown.” Humphrey said people at the church donate items and the students have a monthly drive called Caring and Sharing Day when they collect canned goods and nonperishable items for the pantry. The volunteers pass out items at Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas and also help families throughout the year. Delhi Fire Chief Bill Zoz said he and the firefighters like the opportunity to volunteer. “The guys volunteer their off time to help the ladies of the parish,” he said. “We enjoy doing it. It’s just one of those things you do because you like to do it and at the end of the day you feel good because you helped somebody.” He said that it’s the least the department can do to help the community. “It’s important because we’re all beneficiaries of the hard work of the people in the community,” he said. “It’s a good way to give back to the community that’s given so much, so that we can do what we do every day.” To donate to the pantry, call Our Lady of Victory parish office at 9224460.

plan a fundraiser to help another classmate facing a difficult time in her life. “I think it is awesome that young women can have such a strong sense of the spirit of sisterhood, faith and service,” Schutte said. Schmidt said so far she’s raised almost $3,000 from generous donors, and her goal is to raise at least $5,000. “It means a lot to me to be able to help Sami and her family,” she said. “I don’t really see it as

They bought it from a private dealer and didn’t know it did not have a handle for the back hatch until they got it home, making it very difficult to take Dylan around. Because of the difficulty of transporting Dylan, Amber said many times he’d have to stay at home. “Before he’d get stuck at home with the sitter,” she said. “He likes to be out there with his brothers while they’re doing stuff.” Amber’s husband, Jason Jeannet, said he’s thrilled to have the new ride so that Dylan can spend more time with his brothers Zachary Adkins, 17, and Nathan Jeannet, 12. “It’s a lot easier getting

around and now the whole family can be included,” he said. McNamara said that with the new van and installation they have lots of activities planned for Dylan. “We tried to include him in as many activities as we can,” she said. “We try to get him out more and enrich the life he has. He’s going to play baseball this year through Miracle League, all because of the van and having the ability to take him places.” Delhi Skirt Game cochairman Clyde Kober said it’s always a thrill to help people. “That’s what the Skirt Game is there for,” he said. “We’re there to help people in Delhi who can’t get help from any place else. It makes you feel good to touch somebody’s life. The more we can do in a year the happier we are.”

tember 2008. “CERT assessed damages of every house on every street in Delhi,” he said. “Without that assessment Hamilton County couldn’t have applied for the reimbursement. It helped pay for the manpower to clean up the township.” Zoz said that CERT acts as an extension of the fire department. “They’re self deployed when you have a disaster,” he said. “They are trained to take care of themselves and their neighbors in the face of a tragedy.” CERT often assists the department with emergency runs. “Once they’ve helped their neighbors, we’d sometimes send them on a lower level run to have them check it out while we’re handling bigger emergencies,” Zoz said. The response team has open meetings at 7 p.m. on the third Monday of every month at the Delhi Fire Department headquarters on Neeb Road. They discuss safety habits and update training when necessary. New members are welcome and must attend a free three-month course to be trained for CERT. Courses are offered when a minimum class size is met.

West Siders build model of Irish Famine ship By Kurt Backscheider

Philip Thompson and Jim Peters have been building model ships since they were teenagers. The West Side friends love the study of maritime history as much as they enjoy the intricacy involved in the craft. “It’s a challenge, you want to make sure it’s historically accurate and looks right,” said Peters, a Green Township resident. “And when it’s finished you have a thing of beauty that lasts forever.” The friends, who met through their involvement in the Maritime

Modelers of Greater Cincinnati, teamed up recently to build a model ship that pays homage to Thompson’s Irish ancestors. For nearly three months they toiled over details and weaved thin strings of rigging while strictly adhering to model plans based on a full-scale replica of the Dunbrody, an Irish Famine ship harbored in New Ross, County Wexford, Ireland. Thompson, who lives in Westwood, said the Dunbrody was one of the ships that carried Irish families to the United States to escape Ireland’s Great Famine from 1845 to 1852. He said his great-

grandparents and grandparents were among those Irish immigrants who fled to make better lives in America. “I’ve always wanted to build a model of the ship my grandparents and great-grandparents came over on from Ireland,” he said. The ships became known as Coffin Ships, Thompson said, because as many as 60 percent of the passengers died from starvation, fever and other diseases during the sixto nine-week passage. They are donating the ship to the Irish Heritage Center of Greater Cincinnati, 3905 Eastern Ave., in Columbia Tusculum.

Mercy educators earn Master Teacher recognition By Kurt Backscheider

WESTWOOD — Five faculty members at Mother of Mercy High School have earned the Master Teacher designation. Math teacher Judy Jones, social studies teacher Chris Kroner and English teacher Heather Wagner achieved the status last year, and this school year English teacher Greg Bouman and music teacher Kim Zang joined their colleagues in becoming Master Teachers. The designation is through the Archdiocese of Cincinnati and the Ohio Department of Education. Wagner said teachers interested in becoming a Master Teacher can do so when renewing their teaching license. “It’s a state process,” she said. “It’s a next step for teachers in professional development.” All five Mercy teach-

ers went through an arduous application process in which Wagner said they had to meet certain requirements in instruction, assessment, collaboration, leadership and professional development. “It’s a great self-evaluation process, taking a look at your effectiveness as a teacher,” she said. “And it’s all for the benefit of the students.” Jones said earning the designation is good for the school, and is also helpful for teachers professionally. “It really does call you to reflect on your teaching career and the relationship you have with students and the community,” she said. Bouman and Kroner said although the work involved was sometimes challenging, it was nice to receive affirmation that they are good teachers and earn recognition for their classroom leader-

ship and commitment to ongoing professional development.

“You get validation and confirmation for what you do in the classroom,”

Bouman said. Kroner added, “It’s good to challenge your-

self. I think all teachers should do it, it’s a worthwhile process.” As a music teacher, Zang said she was hesitant to apply for Master Teacher designation at first because she wasn’t sure it applied to her role. Now that it’s all over, she said realizes the positives in going for it. After opening her letter notifying her she’d earned Master Teacher status, she said took a moment to enjoy it and then, “I went right back to teaching.” In order to maintain the Master Teacher designation, every five years they’ll have to show evidence they are still meeting the standards, Wagner said. Mercy Principal Dave Mueller said it’s well-deserved recognition for all the teachers. “I’m grateful that they participated in the rigorous application process for this honor,” he said.

An all-school Life Mass was celebrated to focus attention on the sanctity of all life and to welcome back the students who attended the Life March in Washington, D.C. Various personal hygiene items and shoes were collected to be donated to the St. Vincent de Paul Society. The celebration ended with Raise the Spirit Day. The students and teachers were in full McAuley spirit wear and, at the urging of the students, the day ended in a faculty-on-faculty volleyball game. Employees participated in many roles: players, line judges, referee, scorekeeper, photographer and announcer. The game came down to a final game point, with the losing team having to dress up in whatever silly costumes the winning team chose.

Elder names Jason Roush wrestling coach Gannett News Service

PRICE HILL — Jason Roush has

been named the new Elder High School wrestling coach, the school announced. Roush had been the head varsity coach at Glen Este since 2009. He has a dual record of 43-23 and coached 18 league champions, seven sectional champions, two district champions, six state qualifiers and a state placer. He was Roush the Eastern Cincinnati Conference coach of the year. Roush, 27, is the eighth coach in the history of the program, according to Elder. He succeeds Dick McCoy, who retired earlier this month after a 31-year career as head coach at the school. “Elder has a great tradition of excellence,” Roush said. “It is a program that is well supported by its alumni and well respected in the wrestling community. A lot of that is due to the great job Coach McCoy has done during his 31 years at the helm and it will be my goal to continue this tradition and make the Elder wrestling family proud.”

Experienced Oak Hills looks to make another run plate and senior Anna Stagge returns at first base. Hetzer hit .275 with 11 RBI in 2012, while her fellow senior hit .308 in her 14 plate appearances. “I really like our balance of pitching, speed, defense and power,” Villing said. “We have two fine, young pitchers, and I see our offense improving. We will have a whole new outfield, so that will be a big challenge for us. Last year was a building block season. … We fully expect to improve upon that this season.” The Saints started their bid for a second consecutive winning season April 2 at Ross.

After a March spent primarily indoors, local girls softball squads are hoping for dry fields in April. The following is a preview of the high school teams in the Delhi Press/Price Hill Press coverage area:

Oak Hills

What a year it is shaping up to be for the Lady Highlanders. After their first winning season since 1999 (19-13) and coming up just one step shy of the state tournament, coach Jackie Cornelius-Bedel returns seven seniors including University of Texas commit Lauren Slatten. The senior pitcher set a Greater Miami Conference record with 390 strikeouts last season and was named the GMC Player of the Year. Notre Dame College commit Devan Colebank is back after leading the Lady Highlanders in batting average (.452), stolen bases (19), hits (47), runs scored (25) and at-bats (104) in 2012. Rachel Price is back behind the plate and was voted a team captain along with Colebank by their teammates. The catcher committed just one error last season. Along with Price, the Lady Highlanders are strong up the middle. Slatten fielded her position well last season and Brooke Shad is back at shortstop while Sammy Sagers returns to second base. Someone to keep your eye on is senior Emily Laymance. She missed all of last season with a torn ACL but returns in 2013. The senior was named second-team All-GMC as a sophomore. “… They worked very hard in the offseason on both leadership and speed (and) agility,” Cornelius-Bedel said. “It is nice to have a group of kids who knows what it takes to have a successful season. They set team goals early on and made it their focus throughout the offseason.” The Lady Highlanders started their season April 1 at Sycamore.


The Bobcats look to regroup in 2013 after graduating six seniors from last seasons 12-12 squad, including ace pitcher and leading hitter Amy Feie. Mercy begins its 2013 campaign April 4 at home against Ursuline. No other information was available before press time.

managing the Roger Bacon squad as the Lady Spartans look to improve in 2013. The team returns with up-the-middle defenders Cara Uetrecht at shortstop, and Lexy Hoffman back at second base. Both girls will also handle pitching duties, as will freshman Ashton Lindner. Ashton will throw to her freshman battery mate, catcher Brittany Jaeger, who will also play outfield. Maryssa Campbell will also be counted on in the outfield, as well as third base. Roger Bacon was scheduled to open the season March 30.


After three consecutive losing seasons that included only three GGCL league wins, Seton coach Jay Villing was able to right the ship in his first year on the job as the Saints went 11-11 (6-4 GGCL) in 2012. With five starters back, Villing and the Saints expect more in 2013. Senior Steph Little is back at shortstop after breaking the school record for stolen bases last season with 30. Little also led the team with 33 hits and a .452 batting average. Despite graduating their most experienced arm from a season ago, junior Chelsea Zang and sophomore Abby Lamping are back after combining for 37.2 innings and 33 strikeouts last season. Both posted ERA’s below 3.18 in their 14 combined appearances. Senior Anna Hetzer is back behind the

St. Ursula

St. Ursula returns with the Bulldogs trying to improve off last year’s 13-12 mark. Coach Chrissy Martini said this year’s version of the squad is one of the most athletically talented groups to grace the program in her nine years. If Bulldogs are going to be successful, the squad will rely on a core of 10th-graders. At shortstop, sophomore Kat Jones will anchor the infield, while classmates Meredith Weidner and Megan Chapman handle pitching duties. Freshman Maddie Hancock could also make an impact in a utility role. Lydia Spade should add a lift at catcher, while returning starters Sydney Priest (1B) and Kitty Difalco (2B) bring varsity experience to the lineup. The Bulldogs were scheduled to open the season April 1.

Western Hills

The Lady Mustangs and coach Craig Black are looking to build-off their 4-13 season in 2012. Black returns five starters led by second basemen RayQel Bradley. The senior hit .379 with 15 RBI last season, which earned her second-team All-Cincinnati Metro Athletic Conference honors. Seniors Denesha Bell (3B) and Jaelynn Barfield (CF) are also back. Bell was an all-league honorable mention last season after batting .484, while Barfield hit .324 with 18 hits in 37 at-bats. “We have great senior leadership and some exciting freshmen with a ton of potential,” Black said. “We have a ton of team speed and experience that should help us to be aggressive on the base paths.” West High begins its season April 8 at Taft.

I have been a resident of Delhi Township since 1979. I am active in volunteering in my community and I appreciate the fire department services which we have. I attended a Citizens Fire Academy in the past year and have a better understanding as to the effort and expertise that goes into such an organization. I have also met many of the professional men of this organization. I was a resident of Delhi when the last fire levy in 2004 was defeated, and I certainly do not want to see fire stations closed and men laid off again. We all need to support our firefighters and emergency medical personnel. They are spending our money wisely. Support your fire department ... the next call could be to your house!

Vote for fire levy

Please vote for the Delhi

fire levy on Tuesday, May 7. Our Delhi Fire Department’s paramedics have taken members of our family to the hospital for different serious medical conditions. The paramedics were fantastic! They were kind, caring, and professional. We are fortunate to have these men and women and it is comforting to know that when you dial 911 it seems they are pulling up when you hang up the telephone. After watching them work, I decided to take the Delhi Citizens Fire Academy class. It was amazing to see how much training they go through to keep us safe from fire and provide us with first class medical care. I remember when the fire levy failed in 2004 and the large fire at Delshire while our valuable paramedics/ firefighters were laid off with years of experience and fire stations were closed. Let’s not repeat that terrible time in our history and support the upcoming fire

Earth Day, and every day, care about our air Clean air is the one thing that humans cannot live without for more than a few seconds. We rely on clean air in order to survive, but throughout history, we’ve had air pollution. Our air Megan quality has Hummel improved in COMMUNITY PRESS the past few GUEST COLUMNIST decades, but we must continue to do our share for cleaner air. You can help improve air quality this Earth Day by becoming more energy effi-

cient. When you conserve water and electricity, you reduce the need for burning fossil fuels. Turn off and unplug unused appliances and televisions, reduce shower time, run washing machines and dishwashers only at a full load and switch to CFL blubs. Vehicles are the number one source of air pollution in the Greater Cincinnati area. You can reduce air pollution from car emissions by driving only when necessary, combining vehicle trips, taking the bus, carpooling and by not idling. Leaving the car on while parked or not in use wastes gas and pollutes the air. Call 513-946-7754 to request a free anti-idling re-

minder window cling for your vehicles or anti-idling signs for your school, park or business. By becoming more energy efficient, you can help continue to improve air quality. To learn more ways you can work to improve air quality, join us for Sawyer Point’s Earth Day celebration on Saturday, April 20, from noon to 5 p.m. Be sure to visit us! We will have a booth offering flyers and fun games. To see everywhere we will be visiting for Earth Month, like us on Facebook.

Expungement – clearing your record Our legal system recognizes that people make mistakes. Even criminal convictions should not remain on your record forever if the crime was minor and you have led an otherwise law abiding life. To publicly seal your criminal record, you can apply for Brad an expungeGreenberg ment. Ohio’s COMMUNITY PRESS GUEST COLUMNIST expungement law changed significantly last September to allow more people to expunge their record. Under the old law only first time offenders were eligible for expungement. The new law considers a person eligible for an expungement if they have either: » one felony conviction; » one or two different misdemeanor convictions, or » one felony conviction and one misdemeanor conviction. Many crimes don’t qualify for expungement. Serious

felonies, such as murder and rape, are obviously not eligible. Some violent misdemeanors, like domestic violence, as well as traffic offenses (even speeding convictions) can’t be sealed. A waiting period must occur before applying for expungement: three years for a felony and one year for a misdemeanor. The waiting period begins to run once the offender has been released from jail or probation. Additionally, all fines and restitution from the earlier conviction must have been paid in full and warrants or pending charges must be closed. To apply for expungement you must first file for the process in the same court where the conviction occurred. There is a $50 filing fee to expunge a criminal conviction. However, the fee can be waived if you are indigent. The judge that heard the original case, or his/her successor, will then consider your filing. The judge will determine whether you are eligible by law. If you are eligible but the prosecutor

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Money wisely spent


objects, he will weigh your interest in clearing your record against the government’s interest in maintaining the record of conviction. He has the final discretion to grant or deny the expungement. Many people are surprised that dismissed charges appear on their record. A person may apply to expunge these charges regardless of the reason for their dismissal. There is no waiting period, filing fee or limit to the number of dismissed charges that can be sealed. However, charges dismissed as part of a plea bargain cannot be expunged. Felonies ignored by the grand jury can be sealed after a two-year waiting period. If you are interested in expunging a criminal conviction or a dismissed charge, go to the Hamilton County Clerk of Courts, Room 112 of the Hamilton County Justice Center at 1000 Sycamore St. or call 946-6010 for further information. Judge Brad Greenberg presides in Hamilton County Municipal Court. He is a Loveland resident.

Findlay Mkt. named for early settler

In the 1800s, Cincinnati had seven market houses, but only Findlay Market, named for Gen. James Findlay, has survived. The idea of a market house started with James and Jane Findlay, who came to Cincinnati in 1793. That same year, James and a partner started a log cabin general store near the Ohio River. Betty Kamuf COMMUNITY PRESS Indian attacks on merchanGUEST COLUMNIST dise that came down the river or by pack mule were frequent. He was nearly killed by Indians near Portsmouth, Ohio, and his wagon driver was killed while delivering supplies to Fort Hamilton. After the treaty of Greenville was signed in 1795, Cincinnati grew rapidly and steamboats started delivering merchandise in 1811. Findlay was a successful businessman and turned his pursuits to civic affairs. He was elected mayor of Cincinnati in 1805. When the War of 1812 came along, he commanded a regiment in Detroit and was captured by the British and held prisoner. After the war, he served as a major general in the state militia. His political career extended to Washington, D.C., where he served in Congress along with his two brothers, John and William, from Pennsylvania. Before his death in 1851, he plotted a subdivision north of Cincinnati in Northern Liberties on the north side of Liberty Street. Findlay’s plat contained an open area for farmers to sell their produce on what is now Elder Street in Over-the-Rhine. This area without municipal government attracted a concentration of bootleggers, saloons, brothels, gambling houses and dance halls until it was annexed by Cincinnati in 1850. After his death, his wife donated the land to the city.

The current market house was built there in 1852. It was originally built as a open-sided pavilion designed by city engineer Alfred West Gilbert. He used a durable but unconventional cast- and wrought-iron frame, a construction technology unheard of in the United States. Disputes with contractors and difficulties correcting problems with the new construction methods delayed its opening until 1855. For cold storage, merchants used deep cellars beneath nearby breweries. Between 1860 and 1900, during a wave of German immigration, developers began subdividing the land and laid out streets and began to build houses and businesses for Germans who congregated there. German churches, cultural institutions, newspapers and 36 breweries replaced the gambling houses, brothels and bootleggers. In 1900, the area was the mostly densely populated area outside of Manhattan. Improvement were made to the market in 1902. The center masonry tower was added and the market was enclosed because of public health concerns about the contents being exposed to urban air pollution. Plumbing and refrigeration were also added. The bell from the old Pearl Street Market was added in 1934 when that market was torn down. It was rung at the beginning and end of each market day. Findlay market was renovated in 1974 and expanded in 2003. Over-the-Rhine, with its 950 structures, was listed on the National Register of Historic place in August 2001. It is one of America’s largest and most cohesive surviving examples of an urban 19th century community. Betty Kamuf is a winner of Griffin Yeatman Award for Historical Preservation.

Seton and Elder grads honored for their performance contributions

he Seton-Elder Performing Arts Series Inaugural Hall of Fame gained two new members – Catherine Moore, a 1977 Seton High School graduate, and Greg Mooter, a 1970 Elder High School graduate. These two have not only made outstanding contributions to the arts as students but both have gone on to make careers in the performance industry. Guests enjoyed drinks and hors d’oeuvres before enjoying the ceremony and performances in Feburary in the Seton High School Performance Hall. Guest host, 700 WLW’s Brian Combs, a 1979 Elder grad, highlighted the careers of both Moore and Mooter; and introduced each performance. Moore’s high school performance days included spotlights as Abigail Adams in “1776” and as Anna in “The King and I.” She went on to earn her master’s of fine arts from the University Of Cincinnati College Conservatory Of Music. Moore is now an associate teaching professor at Carnegie Melon University in Pittsburgh. She has been on the faculty at the School of Drama since 2000 and specializes in physical approaches to actor training. In addition to teaching, she has served as fight director and movement coordinator for more than 50 CMU School of Drama productions and she is the co-coordinator of Playground, which is the school’s annual festival of independent student works. She was recently honored with CCM’s Julia Winter Cohen Career Excellence Award. Moore has performed in on many stages professionally, including Cincinnati’s Playhouse in the Park and the Alabama Shakespeare Festival. She also writes, directs and performs with the Boston, Chicago and Cincinnati Symphony orchestras. For more than 40 years Mooter has been playing the bass for a variety of bands and orchestras. He is the author of “The Bass Players Handbook” and has spent his teaching career at Berklee College of Music in Boston where he graduated cum laude in 1976.

Green bean salad satisfies taste for fresh veggies I guess it’s looking at all the seed catalogs that makes me hungry for fresh vegetables. When I browse through the catalogs, I can see myself planting a row of my favorite bush green beans, mounding up the soil around the red onion sets and staking the heirloom tomatoes. Well, none of that is happening any time soon but I can still get highquality produce from the store to make one of my favorite, healthy green bean salRita ads. Here Heikenfeld it is, and if RITA’S KITCHEN you don’t have red onion, use a bit less of a white or yellow, or even a sweet onion. And if your onions are sprouting, you can eat the green sprouts along with the onion. Use the onion quickly, though, because once it sprouts, the bulb loses texture and weight.

Fresh green bean and chickpea salad

Green beans are not only as good for our eyes as carrots, but they also contain silicon, which is a mineral for bone health and formation of connective tissue. 12-16 oz. green beans, trimmed 1 14.5 oz. can chickpeas, drained 2 tomatoes, cut up 1 small red onion, sliced thin (you may not need all of it)

Dressing: 1 envelope Zesty Italian dressing Balsamic vinegar and olive oil Salt and pepper to taste

Garnish: Feta cheese

Blanch green beans: Cook for just a couple of minutes or so in boiling water, until they turn bright green but are cooked enough to be crisp/tender. Immediately drain and put into ice-cold water to stop cooking. Drain. Can be done several hours ahead and kept in refrig-

Bird seed snack mix for a crowd

No, not for the birdie crowd, but for you and the kids. I have had this in my files for a while and my notes say “mix in big bowl.” When you look at this all mixed up, you’ll understand the name bird seed. This is for the reader who needs to make up bags of snack mix for her daughter’s soccer team. It has everything kids (and adults) like – a variety of sweet and salty flavors. If there’s something in here you don’t like, you can substitute a similar item, or simply leave it out. Amounts are approximate. This makes about 30 cups or so. Mix together:

1 jar dry-roasted peanuts 1 pound each plain M&Ms and peanut M&Ms 12 oz. jar dry roasted or regular cashews 1 pound can mixed nuts, salted or unsalted 11⁄2pounds dried fruit, your choice

15 oz. bag pretzel sticks 12 oz. sesame sticks 1 ⁄2pound yogurt-covered raisins 1 ⁄2pound yogurt-covered peanuts

Readers want to know about cilantro and coriander

Rita Nader Heikenfeld is an herbalist, educator and author. Find her blog online at Cincinnati.Com/blogs. Email her at with “Rita’s kitchen” in the subject line. Call 513-248-7130, ext. 356.

Cilantro is an annual herb that likes cooler weather. If it gets too hot or too much sun, you’ll see it quickly bolting to seed. The seed is called coriander. Cilantro and coriander can’t be used interchangeably, as cilantro is the leafy part of the herb and has a citrusy, green taste, quite distinctive. The seed, coriander, has more of a lemony profile. Cilantro cools a hot tummy and is used in Asian, Indian, and Southwestern foods. Add it the last few minutes of cooking time, as it doesn’t hold up in extended heat. Plant cilantro in early spring and, if you want a continual harvest, plant seeds every couple of weeks. Cilantro helps remove toxic metals like mercury from the body and contains powerful antioxidants for good

genre. And while remaining true to the integrity of Western music, they have themselves become modern-day icons by branding the genre with their own legendary wacky humor and way-out Western wit, and all along encouraging buckaroos and buckarettes to live life “The Cowboy Way!” Riders In The Sky are the only exclusively Western artists to have won a Grammy, and Riders have won two. Riders In The Sky’s first official public performance was Nov. 11, 1977, at the Nashville nightspot “Phranks & Steins.” Taking the stage that night for a crowd of eight or nine were Ranger Doug (Idol of American Youth) on arch-top guitar and baritone vocals; Too Slim (A Man Aging Like Fine Cheese) on bunkhouse bass, face, and tenor vocals; and Woody Paul (King of the

Cowboy Fiddlers) on fiddle, tenor vocals and rope tricks, and the launch was successful. They subsequently added the “Stomach Steinway” stylings of Joey the Cowpolka King on accordion and baritone vocals. Riders have chalked up over 6,100 concert appearances in all 50 states and 10 countries. They have appeared on their own weekly show on TNN, as well as a Saturday morning series on CBS. They have been guests on countless TV specials, documentaries and variety shows. And their animated likenesses have shared the screen with Daffy Duck on the Cartoon Network, and the Disney Channel’s Stanley. In addition to penning award winning songs for their own albums, they wrote the score for Pixar Animation’s 2002 Academy Award-winning short “For the Birds.” They composed the theme song for the Internet cartoon show “Thomas Timberwolf” by Bugs Bunny creator Chuck Jones. But the animated character that history will most certainly link to Riders In The Sky is the loveable cowboy Woody, as Riders performed “Woody’s Round Up” in “Toy Story 2,” with the album of the same name garnering Riders their first Grammy Award in 2001 for Best Musical Album for Children.
