They have been running for the sheer fun of it, but now, C.O. Harrison Elementary School students are getting serious. Fourth- and fifth-graders who are members of the school’s Running Club, are in training to compete in the city’s Flying Pig Marathon. Teachers Penny Ferguson and Emily Amlin sponsor the club, which has become part of the school’s intramural roster. “It started as a way for our students to get a bit of exercise in a fun way after school,” Amlin said. This year, she said, club members have the opportunity to log the miles they run as part of

They will run 25 total miles at the school, then run the final mile during the May marathon. “It’s a mile the route we run around the school,” said Keith Keiser, preparing to take a lap. “I joined the club to be healthy and get fit and talk with my friends while we run.” Jailah Long, also a fifth-grader, said she hopes her love of running will take her to the

For now, Long and several others in the 50member Running Club, are concentrating on the upcoming marathon. “Even if you don’t enter the race or not,” Long said, “being in the club is fun because you know when you’re done that you tried your best and can feel proud that you did something you didn’t think you could do.”

Delhi scales down new vehicle buy

By Heidi Fallon

Debate on a plan to reallocate township vehicles ended with a split decision to buy two new fire department vehicles. The police department also will be getting a new van. Delhi Township Administrator Gary Schroeder and township department heads had recommended buying five vehicles. Four of those new vehicles would have been for fire department use. The fifth vehicle is the van the police department requested to replace an older model van. Buying five new vehicles

would have allowed for the reallocation of older, less dependable vehicles to be used among the departments. Tr u s t e e s Duebber Mike Davis and Jerry Luebbers balked at spending the money to buy all but the police van and the two vehicles to replace 13- and 14-year-old Explorers in the fire department. Davis said it would be hard to justify the expenditures to taxpayers given the current economy and the township’s pledge to keep a tight budget.

While Trustee Al Duebber argued that buying the five vehicles now would be a better fiscal plan in the long run, Luebbers disagreed. The fire department’s two vehicles, estimated at $23,700 each, will come from the department’s budget. The money for the police department van will be transferred from the general fund to the police budget. The police department is using its proceeds from auctioning off a 1988 van and several other vehicles. Schroeder said that instead of auctioning off the two fire department Explorers as

planned, trustees could decide to keep them for use by another department. Currently, the parks and recreation department and township administration do not have designated township vehicles. The zoning department’s vehicle is an old police cruiser in need of repairs. Duebber said the fact that Sandy Monahan, parks and recreation director, and Schroeder are driving their own vehicles is a concern to him in terms of liability. He said that needs to be addressed as the vehicle use policy is being reviewed.

Students make pizza on principal’s head By Kurt Backscheider

Sharon Willmes could do nothing except sit still and smile as first-graders hovered around her head with spoons full of pizza sauce and fists full of cheese and pepperoni. The St. Teresa of Avila School principal made a deal with her students and she had no choice but to uphold it. “In about 45 minutes they’ll be making a pizza on my head,” Willmes said Friday, April 16, while watching students trek up and down Rulison Avenue during the school’s first ever walk-a-thon. “They’ve been wound up for this all morning.” Willmes volunteered her head as a way to encourage students to participate in the fundraiser for the St. Teresa Parent Teacher Group.

‘Progress’ upsets Delhi Twp. woman Gannett News Service When Joan Garrett and her husband bought their first home on Greenwell Avenue 30 years ago, it was meant to be their dream house, located in a peaceful neighborhood that touts itself as the “floral paradise” of Ohio. Garrett, 66, spends many of her days in her wooded backyard, tending to stray cats and wildlife that wanders through. But it appears the landscape around her home soon will be interrupted. The township recently approved a zone change so a United Dairy Farmers can relocate into a new building and put in 14 gas hoses. When construction is done by fall, the 24-hour gas sta-

tion and convenience store will span about 4,300 square feet and be about 8 yards from Garrett’s once scenic and private backyard. Garrett’s husband, Terry, a well-known community member who was on the park board and civic association, died in December and couldn’t help his wife fight the commercial intrusion on their dream house. “He’s probably turning in his grave right now,” said son Jason Garrett. “It’s heartbreaking.” Delhi Township trustees said they are sorry for the Garretts but can’t turn down a chance for business investment in the township. “Is this a perfect plan? No, very few plans are,”

more than $900 for the PTG. “It was a good incentive for the kids to raise money,” Willmes said. “It’s been great and it’s been a lot of fun.” Shannon Darnell, president of the PTG, said it was the first time St. Teresa had done a walk-a-thon fundraiser. She said they heard other schools in the area have had success with similar events, and they decided to give it a shot. “Our goal is to purchase a SMART Board for the

said Trustee Mike Davis. “I certainly feel where the Garretts are coming from, but any time you have a longtime business like UDF willing to reinvest into the community, I think it’s a good thing.” Garrett wonders if township officials would have the same attitude if it were their home. “I guarantee you that the trustees would not want to live next to a gas station. If I could trade places with them, I don’t think they would,” she said. “Who’s going to want to buy my house now?” United Diary Farmers declined Garrett’s offer to buy her home. “We didn’t need it. That’s what it boils down to,” said John Johnston, architect for UDF. “We understand her concerns and we did offer to landscape the area along our building and her property to soften the impact of

And before the end of the month, bulldozers probably will appear to demolish the vacant house next door that was purchased as part of the project. Garrett also lost about 6 feet of her front lawn when the township widened the street several years ago. Though Garrett doesn’t oppose business development, her side of the street always has been residential, she said. She wishes it could remain that way.

Laake looks forward to leading Mercy

By Kurt Backscheider

Diane Laake said she plans to continue building on the legacy Sister Nancy Merkle has established at Mother of Mercy High School. Laake, the school’s assistant principal for academics and admissions, has been named Mercy’s new principal effective July 1. She replaces Merkle, who is retiring June 30 after 20 years as the school’s principal. “Mercy is in great shape,” Laake said. “Sister is turning over the reigns of a great school. My goal is to build upon that legacy and continue to articulate the future of Catholic education for young women.” Laake is no stranger to the Mercy community. She’s served all 31 years of her educational ministry at the school, starting out as a science teacher at Mercy in 1979. She became the assistant principal in 2000.

Throughout her career she’s earned teaching awards from Toyota, the Charlotte Schmidlapp Foundation and the Greater Cincinnati Foundation. She’s a founding member of the Network for Mercy Education, which links all Sisters of Mercy schools throughout the country, as well as the Executive Committee for Franciscans Network, a human rights organization. She also serves as Mercy’s chairwoman for the U.S. Department of Education’s National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence Committee. Merkle said she’s confident in Laake’s ability to direct the school. “I’m happy to pass it on to such a wonderful person,” Merkle said. “She’ll be a tremendous leader, and she knows the Mercy spirit really well. It makes it easy to pass it over.” Laake said she is excited about interacting with students in a different way, and

working to Laake provide them every opportunity they need to be successful. She said she looks forward to meeting with the faculty and parents to discuss ideas for the future, while also maintaining Mercy’s core values of excellence, support for one another and Catholic education. “Mercy is the only place I’ve ever imagined myself as being principal,” she said. “I have deepened my love of the teaching profession here.” Laake is the first lay person to be named principal at Mercy, and she said she’s honored to take up that mantle. “Sister (Merkle) comes from a long line of tremendous sisters in leadership,” she said. “It’s been a real honor to work with Sister, and I’m fortunate to have been part of a program the sisters established to train lay people to be leaders.”

The Westwood Historical Society is showing off the neighborhood’s eclectic mix of homes with its fifth biennial Westwood Home Tour. The self-guided tour runs from 1-6 p.m. Sunday, April 25 and starts at Mother of Mercy High School, 3036 Werk Road. Historical Society President Liz Kissel said the seven homes featured in this year’s tour range in age from the late 19th century to the early 20th century, and most reflect the style of homes built in Westwood when the neighborhood was a destination for families who could afford to move to the outskirts of the city. She said the featured homes capture the diversity of houses found in Westwood, from small and simple to grand and ornate. They reflect the different tastes and lives of the original owners as well as those of the current owners, and showcase whimsical as well as practical and clever architectural details. “We usually try to offer

an array of sizes and styles,” Kissel said. “The home tour is a fundraiser for the Westwood Historical Society and, more importantly, a marketing effort for Westwood to let people know about the great homes we have here.” She said a couple of the older homes on the tour were built in the late 1880s, but many of the houses featured this year were built in the 1920s. The homes range from the classic Tudor style to the popular American Foursquare style of architecture. They range in size from 1,400-square-feet to 4,500square-feet, she said. “We have people who offer to open up their homes and we also approach the owners of homes that people have expressed interest in seeing on the home tour,” Kissel said. “Every tour offers a different mix and is a different challenge for the planning committee.” She said this year’s tour also features Grace Lutheran Church at the corner of Boudinot and Verdin avenues. Kissel said the event

It gets a lot of community support because people have really embraced the idea,” she said. “I think it’s fun to see all the excitement the day of the tour, seeing everyone walking along the streets with the maps in their hands. It’s a good feeling to know people appreciate what Westwood has to offer.”

Have a talk before your teen drives It’s a time many parents dread – their child has grown up and is old enough to drive! And there is good reason for concern, because car accidents are the leading cause of death in 16 to 20 year olds, and the risk rises

when the teen driver has been drinking, speeding, or is distracted by too many passengers in the car. But parents can help keep their kids safe on the road by setting a good example and giving them solid ground rules.

Before your child gets behind the wheel, it is important to know the laws for teen drivers in your state. Check out the website to find out how and when your child can apply for a tempo-

rary license. This site also details the restrictions that new drivers must follow, including how long they must be accompanied by a licensed driver, how many passengers they can have, and whether they are

allowed to drive after dark. Parents should create written driving guidelines for their teen. This should include rules for safety (no speeding, no drinking or cell phones), and should outline when and where the teen is

These rules can be adjusted as the teen gains experience and demonstrates safe driving behaviors. A good example of a teen driving contract can be found at Your car insurance company may provide similar resources. It is also a good time to talk with your teen about the responsibilities associated with the privilege of driving a car. Have them share a family car instead of using one designated as their own; this has been shown to greatly reduce the risk of accidents. Set some rules about how much of the gas they are expected to buy, and discuss how much they will be expected to contribute to the car insurance costs. Teach your teen about car maintenance. Show them how to check the oil and tire pressure, and make sure they know how to pump gas, change a tire, and use jumper cables. If you are buying a new car, involve them in the decision, and discuss factors such as safety features and gas mileage. Parents who set a good example while driving are more likely to have teens that drive safely. Make sure you wear your own seat belt, and never drink and drive. Follow the rules of the road, and avoid distractions. Parents who text and talk on cell phones while driving send the message that it is safe for their kids to do the same. Remember – it is not enough to tell your kids about safe behaviors – you need to model them as well. Learning to drive is a step toward independence for teens, but it should not mean that the parent loses all control. By setting a good example and laying down some ground rules, parents can take an active role in keeping their kids safe on the road.

Teen works to end painful disease

By Kurt Backscheider

By Kurt Backscheider

Traci Garcia hopes someday no one will have to experience the same painful disease with which she lives. “If I could spare another kid from going through this I would,” she said. The Green Township teen, a junior at Mother of Mercy High School, is doing all she can to put an end to Crohn’s disease, and she’s inspiring people throughout Greater Cincinnati to participate in the Take Steps Walk sponsored by the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America. “Ever since third grade, Crohn’s disease has been a major part of my life. To a 9year-old, being diagnosed with a chronic disease seems pretty scary,” she said. “I felt uncertain and nervous about all the changes I would soon face. However, while I experienced many challenges, I never let this disease slow me down.” Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis are painful, medically incurable illnesses that attack the digestive system. The diseases can cause severe complications, including colon cancer in patients with long-term disease. Garcia said she tries to be involved with the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation as much as possible. She’s volunteered at fundraisers and she’ll serve as a leader this summer at Camp Oasis, a camp the foundation sponsors for children learning to live with the digestive illnesses. She said her disease is not something she brings up in routine conversations with her friends, so working with the foundation has allowed her to meet and share with others who can relate to her medical situation. “I have gained an invaluable amount of support and acceptance,” she said. “To me, Crohn’s disease is no longer a burden but a blessing. Without this ill-

She’s starting to spread the word throughout the west side to encourage people to sign up for this year’s walk, which begins at 5 p.m. Saturday, June 12, at Sawyer Point. Tana Garcia, Traci’s mother, said as parents she and her husband were very concerned about their daughter when she was first diagnosed, but have since been impressed with the many people they’ve met who have made it their life to find a cure for the disease. And now their daughter is one of those people. “I’m very proud of her for wanting to get out there and making people aware of the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation. I think it’s amazing,” Tana Garcia said. “The opportunities she’s been given because of this have made her a different kid.” In the past two years, the foundation’s nationwide walk has raised more than $13 million for research and patient service programs. Traci said her goal is to raise $2,000 at this year’s walk, but she’ll be just as happy if she raises $500. “I’m hoping to at least raise awareness, and then the money will come,” she said.

Russ Ratterman said there’s one thing certain about business – it’s always changing. The way a business handles change plays a large role in a company’s success, which is one reason Ratterman’s business has been able to keep its doors open on the west side since 1920. The Green Township resident is the third generation owner and operator of Western Hills Builders Supply Co., celebrating its 90th anniversary this year. “My grandfather started it as a coal and feed supply company in 1920,” Ratterman said. “My dad bought the company from my grandfather after World War II, and I took over in 1983.” From its beginning as a coal distributor and feed supply company on Ferguson Road, on the border of Price Hill and Westwood, the company has grown into building supply distributor for both commercial and residential builders across Greater Cincinnati. Ratterman said the use of coal started to fade after World War II, so his father began focusing more on selling building materials. Today the business, which moved to a new headquarters on Harrison Avenue in Green Township in 1998, is a major supplier of bricks, shingles, pipe,

The west-side family business, on Harrison Avenue in Green Township, is celebrating its 90th anniversary this year. sand, gravel, steel and specialty products for pools, patios, drainage, retaining walls and more. “We do much more than supply bricks and mortar,” Ratterman said. He said the downturn in the economy has slowed new construction, but has prompted people to remodel existing homes. The economy has forced the company to change once again, he said. While Western Hills Builders Supply still caters to builders and contractors throughout the Tristate, he said the company is also a place where do-it-yourself homeowners can purchase supplies and learn techniques for home remodeling projects.

Ratterman said the 15 employees of the business have a great deal of expertise in home remodeling, as many of them have completed projects around their own homes. The company offers a variety of do-it-yourself classes and seminars. To make the business more available to customers and do-it-yourself homeowners, beginning Monday, April 19, the business’s new hours will be 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Saturdays. “There’s always change,” Ratterman said. Despite the change, he said excellent customer service has always been a foundation of the business –

another reason they’ve hung around for nine decades. Employees personally load customers’ vehicles with their items, and a fleet of 11 trucks provides deliveries to all areas of the Tristate. “Take care of your customers,” Ratterman said. “If you treat your customers right and take care of them, they’ll take care of you.” He said he enjoys running his family’s business because his employees are his second family and he’s always loved being around the people and customers who count on the company for a helping hand. “I’ve been very fortunate,” he said. “It’s lots of fun.”

Archdiocese has new school superintendent

A Catholic school principal from Colorado was named Monday as the new superintendent of schools for the Archdiocese of Cincinnati. Jim Rigg, who has worked in Catholic schools in Tennessee and Colorado, comes to the archdiocese with a reputation for turning around struggling schools and for aggressively promoting the value of a Catholic education. He said he hopes to bring that approach with him to the archdiocese, which remains the nation’s eighth-largest Catholic school system despite recent school closures and a dip in enrollment. “Fifty or 60 years ago, Catholic schools assumed the students were going to come to them. I don’t think we can make that assumption any longer,” Rigg said Monday. “We have to do more to convince parents to come to us.” Rigg, 34, is almost 30 years younger than his predecessor, Brother Joseph Kamis, and has not previously been a superintendent. But he has held jobs as a teacher and administrator in several urban and suburban schools, and he currently serves as a principal and the curriculum director for the Diocese of Colorado Springs. He became principal of Divine Redeemer


Catholic School in Colorado Springs in 2005, taking over a school that was losing students and facing bankruptcy. In the past five years, the school’s enrollment has doubled and it now is on sound financial footing. the archdiocese’s schools are but he hopes to attract more emphasizing the educational advantages of a Catholic edu-

Rigg said not in crisis, students by and religious cation. “We have to get out there,” he said. “We have to inform them about what we have to offer.” Archdiocese Spokesman Dan Andriacco said Rigg’s enthusiasm and track record as an educator put him at the top of the list that a search committee submitted earlier this year to Archbishop Dennis Schnurr. “We were impressed by his energy, his presence, his marketing savvy and his turnaround skills,” Andriacco said. “He is an inspiring and visionary leader.” Rigg, who will move to Cincinnati with his wife, Lauren, and their four children, takes over a network of 115 schools with nearly 45,000 students.

Oak Hills volleyball a GMC sleeper?

Menchen returns to lead Highlander boys By Anthony Amorini

Fourth-year starter Tim Menchen returns to lead Oak Hills’ boys volleyball team with the Highlanders aiming to finish near the top of the Greater Miami Conference standings in 2010. Last spring, Oak Hills finished at 12-12 overall with a league record of 5-3 while taking fourth place in the GMC. Lakota West (20-3, 8-0) won the GMC title followed by Sycamore (19-7, 7-1) and Lakota East (10-8, 62) in 2009. However, fifth-year head coach Chris Morman believes his Highlanders have a real chance at finding additional GMC success in 2010, the coach said. “We have the potential to be a sleeper in the GMC,” Morman said. “We have a good mix of veteran experience - and arguably the best player in the city in Menchen - along with

Menchen, an outside hitter, was named Honorable Mention All State as a junior. He was also named Sec-

ond-Team All-South Region and First-Team All GMC in 2009. Menchen finished second in the nine-team GMC last spring with 274 kills. Alongside Menchen, a trio of starters return for Morman including senior Brian Willis (outside hitter) and junior James Luebbe (middle blocker). Luebbe was 10th in the GMC with 143 kills as a sophomore. Three new additions will also be key contributors for Oak Hills including juniors Ryan Moorman (middle blocker), T.J. Wagner (opposite hitter) and David Boehnlein (setter). “The team will continue to improve as the season moves on and the chemistry improves with increased team confidence,” Morman said. “We could certainly surprise some people as the year progresses.” Through five games this spring, Oak Hills stood at 23 including a 1-2 record in GMC. Menchen was sixth in the GMC through the 2-3 start with 52 kills. Willis had 32 kills through the same span with Moorman close behind at 22 kills.

Panthers push for 4th straight state final By Tony Meale

If the Elder High School volleyball team advances to the state final for the fourth straight year, it’ll be due in large part to the contributions of senior captains Steven Kent, Matt Harpenau and John Lucas. “They’re all very mature and talented players,” head coach Sean Tierney said. Kent, a setter, played for Elder when it won the state championship in 2008 and finished runner-up in 2009. “He has the most experience out of anyone on the team,” Tierney said. Lucas and Harpenau, a pair of hitters, stand 6-7 and 6-8, respectively. “They’re very tall, very talented individuals,” Tierney said. “They have the ability to get a big kill in pressure situations and give our team confidence. They have great qualities as leaders.” This senior trio has led Elder to a 7-1 start (as of April 15). The Panthers opened the season March 27 with the St. Charles Tournament in Columbus, where they advanced to the final before falling 2-0 to St. Xavier (23-25, 18-25). “I think we got the jitters,” Tierney said. “We were still coming together as a team, and I think we were playing not to lose as opposed to playing to win.” The Panthers, however, returned home four days later and beat the Bombers 3-0 (25-22, 25-16, 25-18) in a rematch. “The second match was in the friendly confines of

Elder junior outside hitter Matt Moehring (8) goes for a kill between La Salle defenders Dylan Berryhill (10) and Tyler Celek (9). The Pit, and that’s always very helpful; we were lucky to draw a big crowd,” Tierney said. “We have a very aggressive serving game and that got St. X out of their passing game.” Elder followed with 3-0 victories over Oak Hills, Purcell Marian and Roger Bacon before fending off a feisty La Salle squad 3-2 (25-23, 20-25, 25-22, 2527, 15-13) April 15. Aside from his senior captains, Tierney has been particularly impressed with the play of juniors Matt Moehring and Andrew Barnette. “Matt is the only player we have who plays all the way around the lineup; he’s got a very well-rounded

game,” Tierney said. “And Andrew has been working tirelessly and growing leaps and bounds.” Other contributors include seniors Chad Thornton, Alex Redrow, Tyler Hoffman, Nick Boeing and C.J. Zureick, as well as juniors Anthony Monk, Chad Kunze, Ryan Welch, Bryan Coorey and Andrew Burkhart. Tierney said his team needs improve its blocking, ball control and servereceive. “We’re a very tall team, but we need to do the technical things to make us more consistent,” he said. The Panthers have certainly been consistent in recent years with three

straight trips to the state final. They finished runnerup to Moeller in 2007 and 2009 and won state titles in 1999, 2000 and 2008. Tierney praised Panthers past and present for their hard work. “Unless the kids are willing to put forth that work, the success won’t be there,” he said. Playing in the GCL has prepared Elder for several stellar postseason runs dating back to the mid-90s. Elder, St. X or Moeller has won the state volleyball title 11 of the previous 13 years, including every year since 2003. “It’s one of the toughest leagues to play in for any sport; we’re schools who


Elder senior captain John Lucas (14) fires a kill past La Salle junior Tyler Celek (9). are dedicated to not only getting the best out of the kids academically, but also physically,” Tierney said. “When you play against good quality athletes, your program is bound to get better. Our goal is to be playing our best volleyball by the end of the season.”

Walk on water?

I was more than skeptical when Steve Hausfeld wrote a letter to the editor some years ago telling us Al Duebber was a “Godly” man. But now I am a believer after last week’s gratuitous letter from Bill Keenan. Perhaps in future letters we will learn Al Duebber routinely puts clothes on the naked, feeds the hungry and is working hard toward walking on water. Kevin M. Rhodes Gwendolyn Ridge Delhi Township

Delhi Township, putting a new spin on the phrase “ghost town …” Is anyone else bothered by the “Dungeons of Delhi” pictures plastered across the old Thriftway building’s windows and the newly painted side of the building? When did Delhi, the epitome of a hilltop town, start to spiral downhill so quickly? Empty buildings sit vacant for years, parking lots (i.e. Del-fair) lay in holey ruins, and when will we attract a nice sit down restaurant like the Olive Garden? You can bet the goblins and ghouls on that Thriftway building aren’t helping new, useful businesses beat down our doors. This is a wake up call Delhi!

Take pride in your community and step up to make this a better place for you and your children. Tell your trustees you want Delhi cleaned up. You want Halloween to be here only once a year, and you want vacant buildings filled by respectable businesses. Without the demand for change and beautification, Delhi will become a real ghost town.

Next question

Last week’s question

What’s your opinion of Chad Ochocinco’s non-football activities, like “Dancing with the Stars”? “It would be good to see him devote as much time and energy to football, especially since he’s not getting any younger.” M.S. “Chad is a great football player and I enjoy watching him play. I enjoy the stunts after he scores a touchdown, as long as it doesn’t interfere with the game. “I have been a fan of ‘Dancing with the Stars’ for several years, and definitely think the show is more entertaining with Chad in the competition. Chad adds humor and has potential as a good dancer. I am rooting for Chad to make it to the finals.” K.K. “He’s quite the entertainer and I think that, mixed with some dancing talent, makes him a natural for the show. However, I doubt he will be the winner.” B.N. “I have been really impressed. He still keeps one guessing as to what his next move on and off the dance floor will be. Otherwise he has been quite the gentleman. May he continue to make Cincinnati proud of him.”







Screenings important for oral cancer Dr. Peter J. Tsivitse Community Press guest columnist

Because April is cancer prevention month, I'd like to take a quick opportunity to let you know, according to the American Dental Association, 35,000 Americans are diagnosed with oral cancer each year. Of those diagnosed with oral cancer, 25 percent are non-smoking adults, making oral cancer the sixth leading cause of death. Smoking and the use of smokeless (chewing) tobacco, alcohol, poor oral hygiene, and age increase the risk of oral cancer. The most common sign of cancer is a sore in the mouth that has lasts longer than four weeks.

Patients may report symptoms such as: • persistent sore throat, and • the felling of something being caught in throat The development of red and/or white lesions • difficult chewing, swallowing, or moving the jaw or tongue, and • a change in the way your teeth fit together. Periodic cancer screening exams are essential to maintaining good oral health. Dr. Peter J. Tsivitse has offices at 672 Neeb Road.

How did you spend, or how do you plan to spend, you tax refund? Was it more or less than last year? Every week The Community Press asks readers a question they can reply to via e-mail. Send your answer to with Chatroom in the subject line. M.E.N. “Ooh La La!”


“If you want to be a football player act like one, if you want to be a comedian act like one, if you want to be a dancer act like one, but most importantly choose what you want to be and stick to that act.” L.S. “I say make the money while you can with what you can market. Then say bye bye to it when Obamo Cinco redistributes his wealth!” L.D. “I think it’s great! He’s having fun and staying fit at the same time. Dancing is very physical and great exercise so why not.” P.F. “I love it and hope that he does well. It’s fun having someone with ties to Cincinnati on the show again!” C.F.

Couple needs help to keep school open It takes a lot of hard work and courage to start a school in a foreign country with an unstable government, but that is what Joan and Enrique Villasanti did. The Sayler Park residents did not plan to start a school for handicapped students, but no one else would. After Joan Villasanti graduated from University of Cincinnati, she joined the Peace Corps. She was sent to the republic of Paraguay; a California-sized country in South America. There she met and married Enrique, a teacher in the public school system. Itacurubí de la Cordillera, Paraguay, is a small town of poor farmers and local craftsmen. Joan visited homes of handicapped people and taught them basic skills. They came back to the United States in 1988. Seven years later Joan wanted to check up on her students. She found them still being forgotten by the community and the local government. Only children with learning disabilities along with regular students were being taught in the school system. As a special education teacher in the Cincinnati Public Schools system she knew they could be taught and become independent productive citizens. At that time there was a school being run by nuns nearby. She asked the nuns if they could use the school when it was not in use to teach handicapped children. They said


“Since they weren’t allowed in schools we decided we would open up our own school,” Joan said.

The diminishing supply of trust vows their spouses make, etc. Almost every sector of society seems to have more than its ordinary supply of untrustworthy members. An atmosphere of distrust or betrayal breeds more. If so many people are untrustworthy and if it’s “just the way human nature is,” then we’re tempted to ask, “Why should I be any different, I’m not as bad as they are?” Eventually we find it more and more difficult to trust anyone: “In God we trust, all others pay cash!” Psychological professionals, such as Erik Erickson, consider the development of trust as extremely important. Erickson placed basic trust first on his famous list of necessary components for developing a healthy personality. We do not grow well unless we receive it from others, and we are

Life’s a pit of insecurity and paranoia without trust. A sense of trust is crucial for both every healthy person and for every thriving society. Yet, bearing in mind the information each day’s news brings, does it not seem trust is eroding? Who do we trust today? There are some athletes who drug-up or fail their spouses, fans, and falsify their records; financial advisors who milk their investors in Ponzi schemes; banks that go down through greed or mismanagement; churches have some pedophile clergy in their ranks or authorities worried about institutional image rather than God’s little ones. There are also government officials and politicians whose chief goal is self-aggrandizement rather than the common good; celebrities who can’t trust in the marriage

not grown up unless we can give it to others. Trust is an act of faith. It engenders a firm belief and confidence in the honesty, integrity, reliability and justice of another person. In a relationship, trusting the other means we believe we can be open, unguarded and undefended before them. When we trust another we believe in the truth of what that person says and does. We believe he or she would never purposely hurt us, gossip about us, nor reject us when we’re down and vulnerable. “You can count on me!” states their coat-of-arms. The opposite of trust is betrayal, and we know how much betrayal can hurt. After a serious or series of betrayals, we distrust the betrayer and often others as well. We don’t want to experience the pain of

betrayal over again. One man recalled often how he felt the day his mother walked away from him forever. Though later he married a wonderful woman deeply devoted to him, he could never quite trust his wife. He saw in the smallest evidences imagined signs of a coming betrayal. Eventually, he drove his wife away and alienated his children by his suspicions – and then used their going as examples of why no one is trustworthy. Distrust can distort our hearts and minds. Trust is not a fixed or unchanging entity any more than life is. It can be given, taken back, diminished or lost – or it can be rebuilt anew. Time is usually involved in building or losing trust. Trust keeps asking something from us long after it begins. It’s an ongoing process, not a one-time

payment. Father Lou At times there can be so many Guntzelman lies, so many Perspectives cruelties, so much uncaring, that the wisest thing to do is to stop trusting another. The other person has proven him or herself totally untrustworthy. To still maintain trust would be disrespecting ourselves. At other times we must move on in our efforts to rebuild trust. Doing so requires risk and courage. It also increases mental and emotional health, as well as our soul’s desire to love and be loved.

One good turn deserves another. You’ve heard that time and again. But this week it’s really true in my little corner of the world. Frank, my husband, plowed several of our neighbors’ gardens, including the Caudills’ garden. A few days later some of the Caudill kids stopped me as I was walking past their home with grandson, Jack. They ran out to the road and gifted me with several packed baggies of violets, completely stemmed. Now, I don’t know if they did that in reciprocation for Frank plowing their garden, but regardless, their effort far outweighed Frank’s. If you’ve ever plucked tiny violets from

BRIEFLY Bootlegger exhibit

The Delhi Historical Society’s recently revamped King of the Bootlegger exhibit will be on display at the Delhi Township branch library through May 7. The exhibit consists of 14 panels that tell the story of George Remus, a Price Hill lawyer, pharmacist and businessman who made millions selling bootleg liquor during Prohibition. Remus’ story in the underworld and his tumultuous relationship with is wife, Imogene, that eventually ended with her murder, has been made into several books. The historical society exhibit puts a west-side spin on the story. The library is located at 5095 Foley Road. For more information call 451-4313.

Benefit walk/run

Hillebrand Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Bridgetown is sponsoring a 5K Walk/Run from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, May 8, at Veterans Park in Green Township. All proceeds from the Walk for Kristan’s Kids will benefit the four children of Kristan Strutz, the Delhi Township mother who was killed last August. Strutz worked as a nursing assistant at Hillebrand for several years. Her four children now live with her parents, and three of them have Cystic Fibrosis and one child has cerebral palsy. Hillebrand is sponsoring the fundraiser to begin focusing on the children’s education. All the proceeds will go to an educational fund for the children set up through Fifth Third Bank. For more information, visit, or call 574-4550.

Grant denied

Delhi Township Fire Chief Bill Zoz said he has learned the township was unsuccessful in the bid to rebuild the Greenwell Avenue station with a federal stimulus grant. “Less than 2 percent of the 6,000 applicants were funded from the money,” Zoz said. “To make it to the final round is commendable and we will continue to pursue alternative funding sources where available.”

I’m swamped at work. My projects can’t sit for two months. And what about my family? Who’s going to take care of them? They are my responsibility. I can’t ask them to drop everything to help me.

Who has time for heart surgery? But my doctor explained robotic-assisted surgery. It’s highly effective and minimally invasive. And surgeons at Good Samaritan Hospital are robotic experts, teaching doctors from The Cleveland Clinic and Johns Hopkins. All of this is a major comfort to me and my family. Because while recovery usually takes weeks, with robotics, I’ll be back in days.

The seventh annual George Knittle Memorial Bayley Place Golf Classic, hosted by Fox News Anchor Bill Hemmer, will be Friday, May 7, at the Western Hills Country Club. The golf outing raises for Bayley Place residents and Eldermount Adult Day Program members in need. The outing begins with registration at 10 a.m. and a shotgun start at 11 a.m. Cocktail reception and awards immediately follow the golf outing. Cost of the outing is $50. “The tournament provides good exposure for what Bayley Place does. We consider it a family event,” Hemmer said. “To be associated with such a fantastic organization fills my family with pride.” Hemmer’s grandparents, George and Helen Knittle, were long time residents of Bayley Place. Many residents and members are no longer able to afford the full cost of their care. Bayley Place lives strongly by the belief that no resident or member shall be asked to leave nor will any facet of his or her care be jeopardized due to a lack of funds. As a result, they provide charitable care assistance, which totals nearly $1.5 million annually and the need continues to grow. Hemmer, who grew up
