Clean up Delhi

A spring cleaning is in store for Delhi Township. The Delhi Civic Association has its annual Great American Cleanup Saturday, April 24. Volunteers are needed to pick up litter, plant flowers and tackle other to-do items. STORY, A2

By Heidi Fallon

It’s an event designed to raise money and to remember. One weekend every year, Dolores Morris donates $1 from every haircut at her Great Clips salon on Delhi Road to the family of Timothy Roos. Roos was killed serving in Iraq with his Marine unit in 2006. His parents, Rick and Jan, and brother, Adam, established a foundation in his memory. With the money they raise through a variety of events, the family donates the money to community organizations, charities and schools. “We keep it in the community,” said Adam, getting his usual military cut from Morris.

The track and field season is officially under way for high school teams across the state of Ohio. The season culminates with the state championships at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium at Ohio State University June 4-5, as countless local athletes hope to vie for a state title. SPORTS, A6

“We really appreciate what they do here at Great Clips to help us.” Adam enlisted with a Dayton Marine unit after his younger brother’s death. He recently returned from a deployment to Iraq. “I’m home now, until they call me up again.” With the money from the Great Clips weekend event, the family is giving the proceeds to St. Dominic School for the library. Past donations have gone to Delhi Middle, Delshire and C. O. Harrison schools. “They’re such a good family and Tim’s death was such a terrible, terrible thing,” Morris said, adding that she remembers cutting Tim’s hair when he was just a youngster. “We just don’t want anyone to forget the sacrifice he made.”

Howard Brinkdoepke doesn’t think small. The Delhi Township man is cooking up enough of his popular chili to feed the 1,000 people he and fellow Delhi Township Veterans Association members hope will attend their Saturday, April 17 chili fest. The Cincinnati-style chili will be served from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Delhi Township Senior/ Community Center, 647 Neeb Road. Proceeds from the dinner will go toward the association’s efforts to build another Wall of Honor memorial. There will also be a military display. Brinkdoepke, a Vietnam veter-

Howard Brinkdoepke bases his Cincinnati-style chili on the original Twin Trolley recipe. After years of “tweaking” his father-in-law’s recipe, Brinkdoepke’s own concoction includes apple vinegar, unsweetened baking chocolate and crushed crackers. He advises never to eat the chili the same day it’s cooked. The “true taste,” he said, isn’t the same until it’s an and association trustee, has been refining his chili recipe for 30 years. He bases his batches on the original Cincinnati-style chili his father-in-law, Ed Morford, used at the Twin Trolley Restaurant. “Having made many, many batches and keeping many, many notes, I continued to adjust and modify Ed’s recipe to get a very

Are You Considering Cataract Surgery?

Mourners say good-bye to St. Xavier’s James Community Press staff reports

If the measure of a man can be taken by those who mourn him, Matt James’s measure would seem boundless. The St. Xavier High School student and athlete died Friday, April 2, in a spring break accident in Panama City Beach, Fla. His visitation at the high school was April 9, the day he would have turned 18. Mark Motz, director of communications and publications for St. Xavier High School, said his parents, Jerry and Peggy James, graciously allowed the visitation to run past its scheduled 8 p.m. time – until 10:15 p.m. – to allow the more than 3,000 mourners to pay their respects. People waited in line for up to three hours to say good-bye to James, who played basketball and was an All-American football recruit for Notre Dame. According to Motz, attendees included Notre Dame head football coach Brian Kelly and most of his coaching staff; Cris Collinsworth, whose son Austin would have been a teammate at Notre Dame; Anthony Munoz, who pre-

Matt was a young man of faith and of promise.” At his funeral April 10 at St. Xavier Church, downtown, Father Ed Pigott S.J. celebrated the Mass and Father William Kramer – Visitation pastor – delivered the homily before the family conducted a private burial. To allow the St. Xavier athletes to pay their respects, Athletic Director John Sullivan announced the postponement of several sporting events April 9 and 10, including varsity and junior varsity lacrosse, volleyball and baseball games. “We would like to thank everyone for their prayers and support during this tragic time, particularly the family at St. X. Matt was a very special young man, and it is gratifying to us that you all could see that as well,” his parents released in a statement. “We are touched by this outpouring of love.” Besides his parents, James is survived by brothers Jerome “Romey” and Simon James and grandparents Harry and Shirley Lonneman and Jo Ann James. He was preceded in death by grandfather Jim James. Remembrances can be made to the Matthew James Scholarship Fund, c/o St. Xavier High School, 600 North Bend Road, 45224.


Wildlife corridor acquires land Western Wildlife Corridor purchased a 13-acre parcel at 5700 Hillside Ave. in Delhi Township on March 26, adding new greenspace in Hamilton County and a new addition to the existing Bender Mountain Nature Preserve. This property was purchased from John and Kim Kraft who agreed to divide their land so that Western Wildlife Corridor could buy the pristine wooded portion of the property.] Funding for the purchase included a $49,000 grant

from the Clean Ohio Conservation Program and $10,000 from the Hamilton County Park District. The members of Western Wildlife Corridor donated the remaining funds for the property purchase. The Hamilton County Park District will retain a conservation easement on this property. This property will offer opportunities to visitors of the preserve including access to vast panoramic views of the Ohio River and beautiful mature forests. It

will also provide an area for remote hiking. The conservation group’s eventual plan is to develop this property into an active nature preserve with trails for hiking on the heavily forested hillside tract as well as a site for educational programs for the neighboring communities. “We are pleased to join forces with Delhi Township, the State of Ohio and the Hamilton County Park District to ensure the preservation of this wonderful nature preserve.” said Tim

Sisson, president of the W e s t e r n Sisson Wildlife Corridor Board of Trustees. Western Wildlife Corridor has partnered with the Hamilton County Park District and Delhi Township Parks and Recreation since 2003 to preserve the habitat of the Bender Mountain area.

Art teacher awarded for her fabric work Sharon Kesterson Bollen, Ed.D, professor of art at the College of Mount St. Joseph, was awarded the Evansville Museum’s Jeanne Bowman Ellenstein Purchase Award for “Jazz Fibrations,” a fabric work consisting of deconstructed screen printing, collage, and fused appliqué. The piece was recently displayed at the Mid-States Craft Show, one of the longest running, highlyregarded craft exhibitions in the country. Bollen says that her students are part of the reason for her experimentation with deconstructed screen printing, a process that involves preparing the screen with dyes and objects. “Jazz Fibrations,” which measures 39 inches high and 59 inches wide, took over 200 hours to assemble. “In my work, I explore and push boundaries to encourage my students to

do the same,” she said. As the recipient of the Purchase A w a r d , “Jazz FibraBollen tions” was acquired by the Evansville Museum, and will be housed in its permanent collection. Bollen expressed her happiness, saying that “my work will always be preserved. It’s going to a good home.” A member of the Mount’s faculty since 1977, she is the recipient of the Mount’s Clifford Award for Distinguished Teaching, the Ohio Designer Craftsman’s Miach and Ruhlin Awards, the NAEA’s Outstanding Higher Education Art Educator Award, and the Ohio Art Education Association’s Outstanding Art Educator Award. She lives in Hyde Park with her husband.

College of Mount St. Joseph receives Make a Difference recognition The College of Mount St. Joseph was among the 10 outstanding Make A Difference Day Ohio projects recognized during the annual ceremony in Columbus on March 16. Ohio First Lady Frances Strickland and former First Lady Hope Taft presided over the event. The College of Mount St. Joseph was the only college in the state to receive this high of an honor.

“Volunteerism is a winwin proposition. It benefits the community and the volunteer," Strickland said. “Make A Difference Day Ohio is an opportunity to work, learn and grow together. Volunteers across the state give back to their communities – and we are all better for it.” Citizens across the country spent Saturday, Oct. 24 – which was the 10th annual Make A Difference Day –

doing volunteer projects to improve their communities and help neighbors in need. Make A Difference Day, the largest national day of volunteering, is a catalyst that brings people together for projects that often extend beyond one day a year. In 2009, the 10th consecutive year, USA Weekend magazine reported that Ohio led the nation with over 1,100 projects implemented throughout the state involv-

ing over 42,000 volunteers. The College of Mount St. Joseph was honored for its “Students for a Better Cincinnati” project. The project was the brainchild of Mount seniors Michael Heckmann and Danielle Siemer, members of the Service Learning Advisory Committee, under the leadership of Service Learning Coordinator Mary Bookser, SC. Sophomore Bridget Kent, another member of

the Committee, served as the co-chair of the Make A Difference Day project. Students for a Better Cincinnati brought students from Seton and Elder high schools together with members of the Mount community, Service Learning community partners, and a special contingent from Procter & Gamble, led by alumna Courtney Jaspers, to perform works of service in and around the city on Oct. 24.

The slogan for the event was Live Boldly, Serve Boldly, Love Boldly. This is the second honor the Mount has received for service this semester. The College was recently named to the 2009 President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll, the highest federal recognition a college or university can receive for its commitment to volunteering, service-learning and civic engagement.

Delshire Elementary School fifth-graders got an up-close look at what might be lurking in their backyards. The Boonshoft Museum of Discovery brought clues of native wildlife to the school for an entertaining and educational class. Fifth-grade teacher Eric Rothwell said the Dayton museum’s trip was new to the school, but the science lessons weren’t. “Their visit helps us reinforce what we teach about animals native to this area and Ohio, and about adaptation and our environment,” Rothwell said. The exhibit spread across a classroom and included furs, feathers and bones. Megan Gibson said she was fascinated by the difference in bird eggs. “I really love birds and I have a parakeet named ‘Dude,’” the fifthgrader said. “It’s amazing how small the hummingbird egg is compared to how big and heavy the eagle egg is.” Students also learned about the survival and conservation of animal populations in Ohio and closer to home.

Delhi Middle School families created works of art out of ordinary household items at the school’s Family Art Night. About 30 families participated in “Reduce, Reuse and Recycle,” the theme of the night. They created found object sculptures with help from students from the College of Mount St. Joseph. Prior to the event, organized by art teacher Susan Lawrence, students were asked to bring in items that were no longer used at home. The families worked with wood scraps, dowel rods, wire, small metal pieces, paper towel rolls, nails, bottle caps, plastic lids, broken toy parts and egg cartons, to name a few.

Rice foundation awards grant to Literacy Network The Helen Steiner Rice Foundation awarded the Literacy Network of Greater Cincinnati $5,000 for its Children’s Basic Reading Program which provides free reading instruction for first- through fifth-grade children suffering from severe reading deficiencies or symptoms of dyslexia. The reading program classes are offered after school, four days a week (Monday-Thursday) for one hour for two school years. Utilizing a multi-sensory technique, based on the Orton-Gillingham approach, the program gives students the tools and confidence to read independently. 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 will be served through

the CBRP classes. “Our CBRP strives to ensure that all Greater Cincinnati children learn to read prior to fourth grade so the remainder of their scholastic careers can be spent reading to learn,” said executive director Stephanie Graves. “The Helen Steiner Rice Foundation’s generous support allows us to impact the future of numerous children in our community. The Literacy Network would be incapable of supplying these life-altering services without long-term community partners like The Helen Steiner Rice Foundation.” For more information about Children’s Basic Reading Program, volunteer or learning opportunities, or how you can help support the Literacy Network, please call 513-621-7323 (621- READ) or visit

Elder seeks repeat of league title

The Elder High School track team won a league title last season for the first time in 20 years. Gone, however, are a trio of state-qualifiers – Reggie Mitchell (long jump), Justin Meyer (long jump and high jump) and Ryan Wynn (800). Mitchell and Meyer were also named GCL-South Athletes of the Year last season. “It’s very difficult losing those three guys,” head coach Brian Flaherty said of his former team captains. “The leadership qualities they had were unbelievable.” Yet the Panthers return several key components. They boast a stable of sprinters, most notably junior Tyrall Butler – who won the 100 and 200 at the Fairfield Invitational March 31 in times of 11.1 and 22.9, respectively – and senior Adam Brown. “Tyrall will definitely be one of the top sprinters in the city in the 100 and 200,” Flaherty said. “He’s got a good chance of getting the school record in both.” Marcus Moore, a 1994 graduate, holds the school record in the 200 (22.1) and is tied for the school record in the 100 (10.8) with 2004 graduate Ian Steidel. Brown and Butler – along with senior Emanuel Mitchell – were part of the 4x100 and 4x200 relays


Local teams get back on track – and field

Elder High School junior Josh Makin, who led the Panthers to a 10th-place finish at the cross country state championship last November, is part of a distance unit that will guide the track team this spring.

that qualified to regionals last year. “Adam is a born leader; he’s the captain of our sprinters,” Flaherty said. “He’s good about getting the kids motivated and making sure they do what they need to do. He’s a coach on the track.” Flaherty has also been impressed with junior sprinter Josh Freidel. “Josh will be right there with Tyrall,” he said. Among Elder’s distance specialists are senior Keith Schenkel, who will run cross country and track for Xavier University, and junior Josh Makin, who earned GCL-South Runner of the Year honors last fall. This duo helped the cross country team to a 10th-place finish during the state championships at Scioto Downs in November. “The distance team is probably going to carry us this season,” Flaherty said. “Josh Makin is so talented in every event – 4x4, open 800, the mile. I can place him anywhere and he can be successful. And Keith is an extremely hard worker who works his tail off. I’m expecting big things from those guys.” The top performer in the field, meanwhile, will be Robbie Huser-Weigtman, who will specialize in discus. He plans to add the shot put to his repertoire once he recovers from a wrist injury. “We’re hoping he can improve every week,” Fla-

herty said. The aforementioned Emanuel Mitchell has also proved reliable in the long jump; he broke 21 feet at Fairfield. “That’s Reggie-Mitchell territory,” Flaherty said. “(Emanuel has) never done it before (this year), so he’ll only improve with technique.” The Panthers have looked sharp in the early season. They finished fifth out of 38 teams and fifth out of 35 teams at two preseason invitationals in Cedarville in January. Elder also finished fourth out of 17 teams at the Centerville Relays March 27 and second of nine teams at Fairfield. If the Panthers hope to repeat as league champions, however, they’ll have to improve in the field. “We’re one or two athletes away from being extremely good; the only problem is, those one or two athletes need to be in the field,” Flaherty said. “Running-rise, I’ll put my team up against anybody, but we’re giving up too many points in the field.” The GCL Championship will be held at La Salle with preliminaries May 12 and finals May 14. “The guys believe they can win again,” Flaherty said. “It used to be, ‘Let’s win the league and get to regionals.’ Now it’s, ‘Let’s win the league and get to state.’ They think they can do it, and that’s good.”

The track and field season is officially under way for high school teams across the state of Ohio. The season culminates with the state championships at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium at Ohio State University June 4-5, as countless local athletes hope to vie for a state title. Here’s a look at the local teams:


Dan Bird enters his seventh season as head coach of the Bobcats, which finished fifth in the Girls’ Greater Cincinnati League Scarlet division last year. Mercy returns four starters, most notably Anna Ahlrichs, who is within striking distance of the school record in the mile and will run for Xavier University. Other returners include sophomores Lauren Seibert and Jenny Langen, as well as senior Elaine Simpson and Melina Artmayer. The Bobcats performed at the Ohio Indoor Track State Championships in Akron March 20. The 4x800 relay team – consisting of Ahlrichs, Simpson, Seibert and freshman Courtney Kurzhals – set an indoor school record (10:04.34) to finish ninth overall. The outdoor record is about 30 seconds faster, which Mercy may topple this season. “The freshman and sophomore class is large and promising,” Bird said. “It’s fun to watch them develop their skills.” The Bobcats, which performed in the Colerain Invitational April 13, will participate in the Princeton Invitational April 27 and the Best of the West Invitational, which will be at Oak Hills May 6. The GGCL Meet will be at La Salle with preliminaries taking place May 12 and finals May 14.

Oak Hills

Distance standout Izak Valesquez, an Oak Hills senior, leads the Highlanders back to the track this spring. Jerry Dean begins his 26th year at the helm of the Highlander boys’ program with girls’ coach Mike Eckert beginning his third year with the Lady Highlanders in 2010.

Valesquez won a Division I district title in the 3,200meter run last spring with a time of 9:56.98. He took fifth place at the Greater Miami Conference finals in the 1,600 and fourth place in the 3,200. In 2010, Valesquez had the second-best time in the GMC in the 3,200 at 9:44.35 and the third-best time in the conference in the 1,600 at 4:34.36 as of Wednesday, April 7. Additional key contributors for the Highlander boys will include senior Corie Cartmell (hurdles), junior Cody Lacewell (middle distance), senior Zach Rebennack (sprints) and junior Alex Adams (pole vault). Cartmell finished third in the 110 hurdles at the 2009 GMC finals and took seventh in the 300 hurdles. Freshman Kevin Konkoly is also emerging as a runner to watch at Oak Hills as the anchor for both of the Highlanders’ sprint relays. Konkoly’s top time in the 200 so far this season is at 22.49. The Lady Highlanders are led by sophomore Gabriella Kain (100 hurdles, high jump), senior Marsha Wall (sprints), senior Megan Murray (middle distance) and junior Emily Wohlfrom and senior Kelli Stockelman in the 400. Kain is closing in on a Lady Highlander record in the high jump, Eckert said. As of Wednesday, April 7, Kain was one-of-three girls tied atop the GMC standings with a 4-foot-10 leap alongside Colerain’s Sam Fields and Vicki Kinne.


The Seton High School track team should be even better in 2010 as the Saints return a Girls Greater Cincinnati League honorable mention sprinter in sophomore Kaitlin Cappel and a returning regional qualifier in the high jump in sophomore Anna Goettke. Seniors Kelley Hayhow, Jaclyn Loechel and Chelsea Lipps will be key parts of the sprint relays. Senior mid-distance runner Jordan Perry is an athlete to keep on eye on and the distance runners will be led by sophomore Anne Pace. Seniors hurdler Rachel Loebker and pole vaulter Julie Corbett look to improve on their finishes in 2009 and


Oak Hills standout Izak Valesquez, seen here running in a relay event last season, returns to lead the Highlander boys this spring. the throwers will be led by seniors Catie Adams and Carly Hartman. Freshman Jessie Woeste is a promising addition to the team along with freshman Emily Heine. Freshman sprinters Jocelyn Evans, Haley Rollison and Jaime Smith will strengthen the relays. Freshman distance runner Shelby Fritsch will look to carry her cross country success over to the track. “The Saints are determined to improve upon last season’s sixth-place finish in the GGCL,” head coach Karen Berling said. “We have 13 seniors and no juniors, but we do have 12 sophomores and 25 freshmen ready to learn from the seniors’ enthusiasm, passion and knowledge.”

Western Hills

Peggy Peebles enters her 10th year as head coach of the Mustangs, which have had regional performers each of the last six years. The girls’ team is led by Jacolebi Alston and Leasia Carter, while the boys’ team is led by Antevin Brown, George Lundy, Tracey Riddle and Stoney Sutton. Brown, who is garnering interest from the University of Cincinnati, is closing in on school records in the 800meter dash and 300 hurdles. The Mustangs will perform in invitationals at Madeira (April 14), Mount Healthy (April 21) and Ross (April 30). They will also appear in the Best of the West Meet, which will be at Oak Hills May 6. The Cincinnati Metro Athletic Conference Championship is slated for Stargel Stadium with preliminaries May 10 and finals May 12. “I like the fact that we are young but seasoned,” Peebles said. “We have a few veterans that carry the team. We have so many athletes with heart, and they take pride in what they do.” Reported by Anthony Amorini, Mark Chalifoux and Tony Meale

Thanks to a community leader

Not often does a citizen decide to give part of his/her life for the good of their community. This person is a home-grown, classy person, well-educated, a successful local businessman, an employer of many past and present employees, a past school board member, a continuous supporter of our local schools, churches, police and fire departments, elected to various business organizations and non-profit groups, served his country, helped students attain scholarships and, most importantly, a good family

man willing to help others worthy of a good cause. There may be times we don’t always agree with his decisions, but his overall performance as a competent trustee warrants an A rating. Lord knows he doesn’t give of his time for the money. We should all hope that his experience and willingness to serve will continue for many years to come.

Don’t feel sorry for Price Hill For many, the Price Hill identity has a strong allure. Say Price Hill and you conjure an image of toughness, perseverance and self-reliance. That’s because, historically, it’s a place where the less fortunate – the aspiring middle-class – overcame adversity and succeeded. These are the people who created Elder High School. And this culture continues to sustain the school’s storied spirit as it is handed down graciously by each passing generation. Perhaps that’s why, when Elder succeeds, the entire Elder community seems to rally around Price Hill. Today, the fortunes of Price Hill and Elder seem to be inherently linked in our collective consciousness. And yet, as Elder prospers, the old neighborhood continues to struggle, in spite of the efforts of our faith-based agencies. Why? Robert D. Lupton, Ph.D., author of “Return Flight,” writes, “The key to restoring communities is attracting and retaining capable neighbor-leaders.” Interestingly, although a love for Price Hill is a part of the Elder community’s DNA, traditionally the pinnacle of achievement has been to move away from Price Hill. So we discourage our children

from returning, and on the west side we do what our parents tell us. We then collectively scratch our heads and say, “It’s a shame what’s Jim Grawe happening to Community Price Hill. How Press guest could this hapPerhaps columnist pen?” we need to better understand that “purple thing.” But Price Hill is no less adversely affected by the Price Hill “wanna-bes” who, although living in what the city bureaucrats are now calling West Price Hill, reside in and enjoy the comforts of Covedale. They strut their “I live in Price Hill” bravado, then move and shamelessly list their home as being located in Covedale. These opportunists exploit the Price Hill identity for their personal ego and the Covedale identity for their financial gain. This practice has shaken both communities’ cultural identity, leaving pockets of Price Hill a catch basin for dependent people. Fortunately there are a few select Elder grads like John Wall

and Dan Boller, independent thinkers who don’t need a bumper sticker to say they love Price Hill or a T-shirt to prove that they “Bleed Purple!” That’s because they choose to live well within the undisputed boundaries of Price Hill, deep in the heartland, beyond the demilitarized Seton and Elder zones. And instead of feeling sorry for Price Hill and the less fortunate, they believe in Price Hill. They are among the gainfully employed “capable neighbor-leaders” who are investing their wealth in the improvement of their homes, practicing what Elder preaches: Giving back and leading by example. To them, “neighboring” is a faith value. So, quoting the Beach Boys, they happily say, “The bad guys know us and they leave us alone.” These are not do-gooders who seek attention. They simply enjoy living in Price Hill because it satisfies their adventurous and creative nature, which in turn energizes the hopes and dreams of an entire neighborhood. So, if we’re concerned for Price Hill’s future, perhaps we should be cheering for them, instead of for Elder. Jim Grawe is the co-founder of the Covedale Neighborhood Association.

Although I understand the reasoning for the concern in using the untapped oil and gas, our country is going through tough times and making use of these natural products could be a boost to the economy and develop jobs in a time when jobs are scarce.” K. “Why is it OK now, when so many were against it during the last administration? If we have it we should use it.” N.

If you’re age 25 or older, pay Social Security taxes and are not yet receiving monthly benefits, you should get an automatic Social Security statement in the mail each year about two to three months before your birthday. The statement is a valuable tool to keep track of your annual earnings, as well as to help you plan your financial future. But if your earnings don’t meet the threshold for filing a federal tax return, you might not receive your annual Social Security statement. Social Security would like to make sure that you know you’re entitled to one. Everyone who has worked and paid Social Security tax is entitled to receive a statement. So if you don’t get one automatically in the mail, you can request one from Social Security – and the easiest way to do that is online Just visit www.socialsecurity. gov/mystatement and select the “Need to request a statement?” banner. You’ll need to fill in the following information to make

your request: • Your name as shown on your Social Security card; • Your Social Security number; • Your date Jan of birth; Demmerle • Your place of birth; and Community • Your mothPress guest er’s maiden columnist name, last name only, to help identify you. You also can provide the following information to make your estimate more accurate: • Your last year’s earnings and an estimate of your current and future earnings; and • The age you plan to stop working. Once you make your request, Social Security will mail you a statement, which you should receive within two to four weeks. Review it carefully to make sure

your earnings and information are reported correctly and contact Social Security if you find anything amiss. After inspection, it’s a good idea to keep your statement with your other important papers. If you’d like to go one step further in your retirement planning, visit our online retirement estimator at estimator, where you can get an instant estimate of your future benefits based on your earnings record and plug in various retirement age scenarios.

April is Heartworm Awareness Month Several months ago, I was shocked and horrified to find that one of my dearest friends who lives in Pennsylvania was not administering heartworm prevention to her dog. My friend is an avid animal lover and well-educated individual. When I asked her why she wasn’t using heartworm prevention, her response was to cite the low incidence of heartworm positive dogs in her county. I pointed out the low numbers were due to successful education of pet owners and the administering of preventative medicine. I’m happy to report that although we talk frequently on the phone, I also place a special call each month on the 8th to remind her to administer heartworm prevention to her canine family member.

Indoor and outdoor cats are also at risk for the disease. Heartworm affects dogs, cats and other species in all of the 50 United States as well as other countries. Heartworms are transmitted from animal to animal by mosqui-

toes. When a mosquito bites an infected animal, young heartworms called microfilariae enter into that mosquito’s system. Within two weeks, the microfilariae develop into infective larvae inside the mosquito. These infective larvae are transmitted to another animal when the mosquito takes its next blood meal. The larvae develop in the dog’s tissue and migrate to the heart. The young worms develop to adult worms in the dog’s heart. Adult female heartworms shed microfilariae into the bloodstream to continue the process. Adult heartworms also extend into the veins of the lungs and liver. Consequently, the worms can cause loss of lung function, liver failure and cardiac failure . In dogs, heartworm disease is caused by the obstruction of blood

flow due to the physical size of the worms. The cat is not a natural host for the heartworm, which means the migrating larval heartworm is not likely to complete its life cycle. Most of the larvae that actually make it to the pulmonary artery die soon afterwards due to the massive immune attack from the feline body. Very few larval heartworms survive to adulthood in cats. Because the feline heart and blood vessels are so small, these few worms can cause severe injury. In a cat, a single worm can lead to a lethal infection. Heartworm disease in cats is caused by the severe, and sometimes fatal, inflammatory reaction generated by the worm’s presence. The good news is it is easy to prevent this life-threatening dis-

The Adoptive Parents Outreach Program (APOP) for Catholic Charities of Southwestern Ohio hosted its fifth annual Chili Cook Off March 14 at the Purcell Knights of Columbus Banquet Hall. More than 200 people attended to sample 29 different chili recipes and support the APOP group's efforts to raise awareness for adoption around the city. A panel of celebrity judges, including

Elder head football coach Doug Ramsey, former Cincinnati Bengals Robert Jackson and David Fulcher, and Ohio's whiskey ambassador Pete Wagner, tasted 29 different homemade chili recipes. First prize went to Nick Kleiner; second prize to Julie and Jay Farmer; and third prize to Maria and Paul Patterson. The event raised $3,549 for the APOP group.


At the APOP Chili Cook Off were, from left, front, former Cincinnati Bengal Robert Jackson; Chili Cook-off organizer Angie Eddingfield, former Bengal David Fulcher. Second row: Ohio Whiskey Ambassador Pete Wagner, chili cook off organizer Chas Eddingfield, Elder football coach Doug Ramsey.

A twist on the ‘Ten Commandments of Marriage’ The Rev. Ed Young, senior pastor of Second Baptist Church in Houston, Texas, wrote a book titled “The Ten Commandments of Marriage.” I never read the Rev. Young’s book but I enjoyed his commandment titles. I expand on them with my own reflections. 1. Thou shalt not be a selfish pig. The worst enemy in any relationship is our selfishness – that my feelings count and yours don’t; that you are here to serve me and make me happy; that if anything goes wrong, it’s your fault, not mine. The opposite of selfishness is love. A good indication that love is present is when the welfare and satisfaction of another person comes to mean as much to me as my own. 2. Though shalt cut the apron stings. When a wedding takes place in a church, another ceremony takes place right below in the couples psychic basement. The groom unconsciously transfers to his bride the qualities and

faults of his mother – and expects to find them hereafter in his bride. The bride, transfers over to the groom the qualities and faults of Father Lou her dad. The Guntzelman u n c o n s c i o u s cerePerspectives basement mony is not ideal. The most ideal situation happens when each spouse recognizes these parental transferences, cuts loose from them, and works to come to know the uniqueness of their own spouse. 3. Thou shalt continually communicate. The average married couple actively communicate about 27 minutes a week. Yet, “Unless we are fully known, we cannot be fully loved.” And how else do we become authentically known unless we let the other know of our fears, hopes, dreams, anxieties, insufficiencies, etc.?

We’re usually afraid because we expect rejection. That’s a possibility. But the risk is worth taking to finally come to be loved for who and what we are. 4. Thou shalt make conflict thy ally. Disagreements are not catastrophes. They are to be expected occasionally when two separate and unique persons form a relationship. Differences are opportunities to communicate, understand, compromise and solidify the relationship. The absence of conflict demonstrates that either the relationship isn’t important enough or that both individuals are too insecure to risk disagreement. 5. Though shalt avoid the quicksand of debt. Money, especially in our culture, can become a bone of contention, an instrument of power, a constant worry, an expression of selfishness, and a destroyer of more important realities. Prudent spending flows from a responsible maturity on the part of both spouses.

6. Thou shalt flee sexual temptations – online and otherwise. Sexual pleasure is wonderful, but it speaks of spiritual and personal realities far more profound than feeling good. To seek sexual pleasure independently of my spouse and my sense of commitment to her/him, is more an adolescent trait than that of an adult. The interpenetration of hearts and souls requires lifelong fidelity. 7. Thou shalt forgive your mate 490-plus times. The 490 number comes from the biblical admonition to forgive not only seven times, but seventy times seven. One of marriages primary purposes is to teach us how to forgive. It is a manifestation of love. 8. Thou shalt keep the home fires burning. Building a good marriage and a good log fire are similar. At first, the paper and kindling make a brilliantly burning blaze. Then the first blaze dies down and you wonder if the fire will fizzle out and leave you in the

dark. You blow on it and fan it for all you’re worth. Sometimes the smoke billows out and almost chokes you or brings tears to your eyes. But if the materials are good and you invest enough time and energy and interest, the solid logs catch and the fire continues. 9. Thou shalt begin again and again. Nothing in this world that is worthwhile occurs suddenly. If a solid love relationship is really desired and valued, we are willing to go for it again and again. 10. Thou shalt build a winning team. It takes two to build a successful marriage, but only one to destroy it. All of the above are seen as teamwork issues by both spouses. And a good team reaches the goal. Father Lou Guntzelman is a Catholic priest of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati. Contact him at columns@community or P.O. Box 428541, Cincinnati, OH 45242.

ing. In addition, the builder has agreed to re-grade the backyard and has now scrubbed the brick so the white substance has been removed. To make sure the new house you’re considering was built properly, I suggest you hire a home inspector certified by the American Society of Home Inspectors. Hire an ASHI Certified home inspector for a new home just as you would before buying an existing home. The inspector needs to check for problems and, and depending on the severity of what’s found, you may

decide to set aside some money in an escrow account at the closing. The builder will only get that money when he makes the repairs. If he fails to make the corrections within a specified time, the money should go to you so you can get the repairs made. Finally, whenever you buy or sell a house I always recommend you get your own lawyer to protect you. Howard Ain answers consumer complaints weekdays on WKRC-TV Local 12.

due to the grade of the yard, I have a swamp out here for at least a week at a time,” said Frisby. “It became a problem and I let them know. They came out, looked at it, and told me the grade works. Basically, they’re going to keep it how it is,” he said. Frisby told the builder he contacted me and said now the builder is much more cooperative. The company has agreed to hire an engineer to assess the driveway and sidewalk problem. The company will now rely on the engineer to come up with a proposal to keep the concrete from collaps-


trucks and just regular cars. Gravity is going to collapse it.” he said. Frisby complained, “The builder just plans to shovel gravel underneath my driveway and that’s how they’re going to fix it. I’m not happy with that at all.” He said that gravel needs to be compacted in order to properly support the concrete. Another concern is a white chalk-like substance that’s appeared in many areas on the brick around the house. Frisby wants to know what that substance is, what’s caused it, and how to get rid of it for good. Yet another issue concerns the grading of the backyard. When it rains, water pools in the yard and doesn’t drain away. “After any rain or snow,

The warm weather is bringing out homebuyers and new home sales are expected to be up this year. But, if you’re in the market for a new house you need to know how to protect yourself before you buy. Josh Frisby bought a brand new house in Morrow and moved in last December. Although he loves the house, he says the builder has been reluctant to correct problems he’s found. “The house is great, but obviously there are some issues that need to be dealt with. I’m trying to give the builder the benefit of the doubt to take care of these issues,” said Frisby. “Some things they are taking care of, and some things they’re giving me the runaround on. They’re

Roll out a tasty teatime with asparagus snacks Rita Heikenfeld Rita’s kitchen

I was right in the middle of making bean soup from leftover Easter ham when I got the call f r o m friends Butch and

Char Castle. “We’re going morel hunting – want us to pick you up?� Within five minutes, I was waiting at the edge of the driveway with my favorite morel-hunting basket in hand. (Yes, I did turn off the bean soup). Now I can’t tell you where we looked, since it’s as secret as knowing where to find ginseng, but I will tell you it was one vigorous workout, climbing up to the crest of the wooded hill. We found everything BUT morels: wild flowers in abundance: spring beauties, bloodroot, trilliums, violets, phlox, Dutchmen’s breaches, and wild edibles like garlic mustard, onions, and ramps (wild leeks). It was just the mental spring tonic I needed. (And we will go back – we morel hunters never give up). When I got home, I found a bonus near the fencerow: wild asparagus. I added that to what I picked out of our asparagus patch and plan to make these yummy asparagus rolls.

from the freezer. Feel free to augment these with more filling, or use whatever cheese, meat, etc. you have on hand. You can hardly go wrong!

Promont Museum’s asparagus rolls

Just looking at the photo will have you running to the kitchen to make these. Mary Ann Benoski, tea coordinator at the Milford, Ohio, museum, shared this recipe. “One of my favorite sandwich recipes this time of year,� she said. Mary Ann and staff have afternoon teas at Promont House and volunteers prepare the food. Beautifully presented on fine china, their afternoon tea is not to be missed. They provide a docent guided tour included in the price of the tea ($20; luncheon $25). Mary Ann said tea cuisine “includes something chocolate, something crunchy and something gooey.� You’ll have a memorable time taking tea at this Victorian mansion once occupied by Ohio Gov. John Pattison and family, and the profits from the teas help the upkeep of the museum. To make reservations, call 513-248-0324 or log onto 14 asparagus spears steamed tender-crisp in salted water, set aside on paper towels. 5 oz. extra sharp Cheddar, grated coarse 5 oz.

Be Proud of Your Image

WITNESS! Let’s think about the word, not necessarily in a religious sense, but from an earthly view of human reaction. All of us witness things every day. We see varying circumstances, situations and attitudes all around us, both good and bad. As we witness these things in other people, wouldn’t it be a good idea for us to ponder what other people see or witness in us? Each of us individually sets a standard of behavior, thought and expression linked to ourselves. In doing this, we naturally provide a scene or knowledge for others to witness. The things we do and the things we say cause people to talk favorably or gossip about us unfavorably. We create our own image, good or bad. We control the destinies of our image in the minds and thoughts of others. When we can be rightfully proud of what others witness in us, we gain an inner gladness that automatically portrays a better, more likeable image... Marilyn Holt

agent for famous rock and roll star Conrad Birdie, is going to lose business when Birdie is drafted into the Army. Albert’s girlfriend and assistant, Rosie Alvarez, brilliantly develops a publicity stunt to have Birdie give “One Last Kiss” to one lucky girl from his fan club before going into the Army. The lucky girl chosen is 15year-old Kim MacAfee from Sweet Apple, Ohio, who has just started going steady with Hugo Peabody. Jealousy and hilarity ensue with fun and memorable songs, such as “Put on a Happy Face,” “A Healthy, Normal American Boy” and “Honestly Sincere.” The College’s rendition of “Bye Bye Birdie” is a student-performed production under the direction of Mary Mazuk, director of the Academic Advising Resource Center at the Mount, and

Tiffany Owens, adjunct music faculty at the Mount. The production crew includes Richard Elliott, assistant professor of music at the Mount, as music director. Members of the cast include Anthony Miles, a sophomore biology major, as Albert Peterson; Mary Beth Heyl, a junior mathematics major, as Rosie Alvarez; Hannah Barteck, a freshman music major, as Kim MacAfee; and Cody Williams, a freshman music major, as Conrad Birdie.

There is a joke among friends here, “It’s a Phoenix that has risen from the ashes. ”When Charles and Allison Hahn Sobieck purchased the property at 502 North Main Street (in Somerset, Kentucky), there was a lot of work to be done, to say the least. With the vision of a B & B and a home in ruins, there were little choices. The dilapidated structure was removed, then reconstructed as it had been in the 1850’s. It’s a brand new home. A bit of an unusual concept for a bed and breakfast. “We reconstructed the home from scratch. This gave us the benefit of designing every amenity possible along the way, ”said Allison Sobieck, owner. Every room is equipped with many amenities you don’t often find in a traditional bed and breakfast, but rather a fine hotel. Every room has a full sized closet with a pair of micro-fiber robes hanging in them, 400- count Egyptian cotton sheets, cable TV with DVD players, queen sized beds, and a host of other things. For instance, 2 rooms have gas fireplaces and 3 rooms have whirlpool tubs. We even offer many add on amenities such as massage, dinner, flowers, etc…

Hilton Head Island, SC

The rooms are only half of the reason to come to The Doolin House. Owners Charles and Allison just happen to both be chefs. Some of the breakfast specialties include Caramel Banana French Toast and Southern Eggs Benedict (2 fried green tomatoes topped with 2 slices of smoked bacon, 2 eggs over easy and Hollandaise). Chuck is usually in charge of breakfast and tries to do new and different things every day. Chef Chuck pointed out, “It’s fun to experiment with breakfast. It’s the one meal that encompasses all foods. It’s perfectly acceptable to see smoked salmon or a pork cutlet at the breakfast table. ”For those in no rush to rise and shine, breakfast in bed is served at no additional charge. When you need a weekend get away that’s not too far from home or you are planning your summer vacation to beautiful Lake Cumberland, remember that The Doolin House Bed and Breakfast is only a phone call away.

Westsiders who attended a address on national security and clean energy were, from left, Back row: Bill Cahalan, Jim Schenk, Murray Johnson, Amanda Nash, Nancy Sullivan; front row, Elizabeth Durrell, Jeanne Nightingale, Eileen Schenk

Westsiders hear about energy independence

Several Westsiders carpooled to the Laborers Hall in Avondale to join 120 Cincinnatians listening to three young veterans, part of Operation Free, a coalition of veterans and national security groups that favor energy independence. Most in the audience were surprised to learn that the military is strongly advocating for more clean and renewable energy, and less dependence on foreign oil. “This is not a left-right issue, it’s an American issue,” said Robin Eckstein, an Army veteran who drove supply convoys. Marine veteran Matt Victoriano pointed to several studies commissioned by the Joint Chiefs of Staff

which emphasize that U.S. oil dependence is putting money into the hands of terrorists, and that climate change has the potential to breed terrorism in regions of the world. Other speakers at the forum focused on job creation and opportunities for skilled trades in the manufacturing and installation of clean energy systems. Nathaniel Meyer, an Oberlin graduate working with the national Green Corps planned the event. He has been living in the Enright Ridge Urban Ecovillage in Price Hill for the past several months, working out of the Imago offices to garner support for a strong clean energy bill.
