West Siders walking to help find cure for cystic fibrosis By Kurt Backscheider

The Delhi Township Veterans Association is working on a plans to include a biographical directory at the Delhi Township Memorial Park of the 19 servicemen from Delhi who were killed in action. The association will dedicate the directory at its Memorial Day Ceremony on Sunday, May 27. FILE PHOTO


“This will be a work in progress,” he said. “We have a complete biography of four KIAs and partial biographies of the others.” Lefler said all the men will have a biography and photos in the directory at the memorial, as well as on a tribute page on the veterans association’s website at Heroes_KIA.html. The veterans association has biographies for U.S. Air Force Tech. Sgt. Anthony Campbell Jr., who was killed in Afghanistan in 2009; Air Force Tech. Sgt. Clifford J.T. Lefler Jr., who was killed in Vietnam in 1969; and U.S. Marine Cpl. James C. Wright, who was killed in Iraq in 2003. The association needs help collecting information for the following servicemen: • Elmer Brater, U.S. Army, World War II • Clarence Fischesser, Army, World War II • Jerry Hood, Army, Vietnam • Raymond Lanter, Army, Vietnam • Ralph Lipps, Army, World War II • Clement Martini, Army, World War II

The Delhi Township Veterans Association is looking for biographical information on the servicemen from Delhi who were killed in action while protecting our freedoms. Jeff Lefler, secretary of the veterans association, said the group is planning to assemble a biographical directory of the 19 men from Delhi who gave the ultimate sacrifice in honor of their country. He said the directory will be installed next to the Killed-in-Action Memorial at the Delhi Township Veterans MemoLefler rial Park. “The directory will be dedicated during the Memorial Day Ceremony,” Lefler said, noting the ceremony begins at 1 p.m. Sunday, May 27, at the veterans memorial. He said the directory will contain a brief biography and photos of every township serviceman who was killed in action.

The inaugural Westside Great Strides Walk is set for Saturday, June 2, at the College of Mount St. Joseph in Delhi Township. Check-in begins at 9 a.m. and the walk starts at 10 a.m. Alison Bethel, executive director of the Greater Cincinnati Chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, said the event will feature a 5K walk around the Mount’s track. A light breakfast will be served to those who attend, and lunch provided by City Barbeque will be served when the walk is over. Bethel said a DJ will play music throughout the event, and a variety of activities will be available for the children in attendance. “It’s really family-friendly, and we encourage everyone to bring their kids,” she said. All participants are asked to solicit walk sponsorships. For more information, or to register, visit greatstrides.

Teresa Connolly and her family want to make sure the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation continues making positive strides in the treatment of cystic fibrosis. The Delhi Township mother’s twin sons, Keith and Kyle, have cystic fibrosis, and for 27 years they’ve been overcoming obstacles from a disease that causes problems in the lungs due to mucus in the body becoming thick and sticky. Connolly and her husband, Bo, have seen treatments for the disease come a long way since their sons were babies, so they’ve stepped up to help organize the inaugural Westside Great Strides Walk to benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. The roughly 3-mile walk begins at 9 a.m. Saturday, June 2, at the College of Mount St. Joseph in Delhi. “The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation has made amazing advancements,” Mrs. Connolly said. “We’re reaching out to people on the West Side who know families or have connections to people who have cystic fibrosis. We’re asking them to give

wonderful foundation.” Alison Bethel, executive director of the foundation’s Greater Cincinnati chapter, said each year the organization looks to launch a Great Strides Walk, which is the foundation’s largest fundraiser, in a new community. They chose the West Side this year because it has a high population of cystic fibrosis patients and many strong families

who can provide the leadership it takes to put on the event, she said. Covedale resident John Wimmers and his wife, Hollie, are among those families helping organize the walk. Mr. Wimmers said their 5-year-old son, Jackson, has cystic fibrosis. He takes medications and enzymes three times a day and receives breathing treatments throughout the day to clear the mucus from his lungs. “Let’s get this money for this research,” Mr. Wimmers said. “Maybe someday he’ll only have to

take one enzyme a day.” Keith Connolly knows all too well what life is like for Jackson Wimmers. Keith said he takes about 30 pills a day, including enzymes, medicine for blood pressure and thyroid, and insulin for diabetes. And two or three times each day he puts on an oscillation vest for about 45 minutes to clear mucus from his lungs, he said. The advancement in treatments for the disease allow him to exercise six days a week by running and lifting weights, he said. Keith said he and his brother, who also take part in the Great Strides Walk each year downtown, are looking forward to joining other West Side families in raising money for the foundation at the Westside Great Strides Walk. Miami Heights resident Kim Seal, a longtime friend of the Connolly family, said she didn’t think twice about assisting with the walk.

“Knowing what Keith and Kyle go through everyday, it’s the least I can do to help,” she said. Bethel said 97 percent of the money the foundation receives from donations and fundraisers goes directly to supporting research for new medicines and therapies for cystic fibrosis patients. Through the foundation’s efforts, she said the life expectancy of a child with cystic fibrosis has doubled in the last 30 years and research to find a cure is more promising than ever. “Three-fourths of our funding comes from Great Strides walks, which is why these walks are so important,” she said. The West Side walk aims to raise $35,000, and she said more than 200 people have already signed up to participate. “We’re really grateful for the outpouring of support,” Bethel said. Mrs. Connolly said said her family and the other families involved with the event are encouraging everyone on the West Side to form a team for the walk, and are asking Tristate businesses to sponsor teams or donate directly to the foundation. She said those interested in walking or donating can email her at “I’m pretty excited to see how it turns out,” she said.

It’s all Italian at Harvest Home Park St. Catharine’s Italian festival returns this weekend

Joe Mastruserio said he loves throwing a big party. The Westwood resident and St. Catharine of Siena parishioner is one of the organizers of the parish’s CincItalia, the Cincinnati Italian Festival. “The satisfaction of helping the parish is a wonderful thing,” he said. St. Catharine will present its third annual Italian festival 6 p.m. to midnight Friday, May 18; 3 p.m. to midnight Saturday, May 19; and 1-9 p.m. Sunday, May 20, at Harvest Home Park in Cheviot. Friday’s “Carnevale” festivities are open to

adults only, ages 19 and older. “We started CincItalia as an enhancement to the St. Catharine parish festival,” Mastruserio said. “We thought we needed to do something to attract a broader audience.” Converting the traditional parish festival into an Italian cultural festival has been a success for St. Catharine, so the parish has once again teamed up with several Italian societies to sponsor the threeday event. “It’s been a great move for us,” Mastruserio said. “Last year we had the best Friday we’ve ever had, and Saturday was still a good night despite some rain.”

Restaurants like Gabby’s Cafe, Dolce Vita Cafe and LaRosa’s will offer Italian cuisine, as will members of the Sons of Italy in America, the United Italian Society and La Societa Fuscaldese Femminile. Italian chefs will per-

form cooking demonstrations, including Mike and Mark LaRosa from LaRosa’s. Mastruserio said a new restaurant has been added to this year’s lineup, Pittsburgh-based Tambellini. “We also added Italian cheese coneys as a new food item,” he said. “CincItalia is the best of Cincinnati and Italy, so we took the cheese coney and gave it an Italian twist.”

The West Side is festival central this weekend. Three Catholic parishes are hosting their annual festivals Friday, May 1,8 through Sunday, May 20. St. Catharine of Siena in Westwood has its CincItalia festival at Harvest Home Park, and St. Aloysius Gonzaga in Bridgetown and Our Lady of Victory in Delhi Township will each host their parish festivals on their church grounds. While it seems three events on the same weekend, on the same side of town, might harm festival attendance numbers by splitting up the crowds, organizers of the events aren’t overly concerned. “There’s enough to go around,” said Dave Bauer, a Bridgetown resident who helps organize the St. Al’s festival. Joe Mastruserio, who co-chairs the CincItalia festival, said St. Catharine and St. Al’s will have their festivals on the same weekend this year, as well as the next two years, because of the way weekends fall on the May calendar. St. Catharine usually has its festival the first weekend following Mother’s Day, and St. Al’s and Victory try for the week-

end before Memorial Day. Since there is only one weekend in between Mother’s Day and Memorial Day this year and in 2013 and 2014, Mastruserio said the festivals will fall on the same weekend. Bauer said Victory’s festival in Delhi should have little impact on St. Al’s and St. Catharine, and vice versa. “We’ll hold our own with the Bridgetown crowd and they’ll hold their own with the Delhi crowd.” One common thread all

the organizers share is that they’ll be praying for good weather, he said. Linda Heidi, secretary to the chancellor at the Cincinnati Archdiocese, said the archdiocese is not involved in the scheduling of parish festivals. She said parishes set their own festival dates. CincItalia runs 6 p.m. to midnight, Friday May 18; 3 p.m. to midnight Saturday, May 19; and 1-9 p.m. Sunday May 20. St. Aloysius Gonzaga’s festival, which features

St Catharine of Siena presents:

Three parishes have festivals this weekend - St. Catharine’s Italian Festival, and St. Jude and Our Lady of Victory. All three don’t think it will hurt attendance. See below

A heritage display of Italian history in Cincinnati is a feature of the festival, as well as Italian dancing, a wine garden and coffee/espresso bar. Music has been at the center of Italian culture for centuries, and Mastruserio said Sal Ventura and Dr. Zoot will perform Friday night, The EuroRhythms and Michael Sutherland will perform Saturday night and Ray Massa will take the stage Sunday. A new entertainment feature added this year is a comedy show, Mastruse-

rio said. Comic Steve Caminiti, who was once voted Funniest Man in Cincinnati and Funniest PErson in Ohio, will perform his “Goombas and Goodfellas” show on Saturday night. On Sunday, members of the San Antonio Italian Church will join St. Catharine parishioners for a traditional Marian procession and blessing. “We try to celebrate all the good things of Italy, as well as the heritage of the Italian immigrants who came here and started their own traditions,” Mastruserio said. “It’s a great time, and it’s the opening of the festival season.” For more information about the festival, and a complete listing of the schedule of events, visit

Oak Hills freshmen ready to take stage Seniors helping with staging ‘The Pirates of Penzance’

By Kurt Backscheider

Oak Hills High School senior Tim Schrenk said it’s fun to watch the freshmen theater students grow and learn. The Green Township teen was once in the same shoes as this year’s class of freshmen, so he’s showing them the theater ropes the way upperclassmen once did for him. Schrenk is one of about a dozen seniors who are

helping Oak Hills music teacher June Hill direct this year’s freshmen musical, “The Pirates of Penzance.” “The seniors play the roles of student directors and stage managers,” he said. “We make it possible for Mrs. Hill to be in two places at once.” The seniors also draw on their experiences from their four years in the drama department to advise and mentor the freshmen, he said. “I love the fact that I can see how they grow over time,” he said. “I’ll be back to watch them over the next few years, and I’ll definitely be back when they are seniors.”

From left, Oak Hills High School freshmen Austin Pfenninger, Ella Rivera and Rylan Hixson rehearse a scene from their upcoming production of “The Pirates of Penzance.” Each spring the drama department presents a freshmen musical, and the drama students in the senior class serve as mentors to the freshmen performers.

Senior Hailey Detore, a Delhi Township resident, said she’s been looking forward to her senior year and helping with the

the freshmen with their hair and makeup, help them with their lines and help design the set. Ella Rivera, a freshman from Delhi Township who has one of the leading roles in the show, said it’s been great to work with the seniors. “It’s really fun. They teach you what to do and what not to do,” she said. “A lot of them are really good friends to us, so it’s not intimidating.” Freshman Austin Pfenninger, a Green Township resident who plays the pirate king, said this is the first time he’s had a speaking role in a school performance. “I really like to act, and I had no idea I could sing,” he said. “When I came to high school I thought I would be in the band, but this is so much fun.” Rivera said all the freshmen who are involved in theater are close-knit. “It’s a great group of people,” she said. “I can’t wait to do shows with them for the next three years.” She and Pfenninger said the show is a funny musical with entertaining songs. “We hope people come see the show,” Rivera said. Hill said the freshmen have jumped wholeheartedly into the theater experience and it’s reflected in their performances. “The freshmen are extremely talented and very excited about the show,” she said.

Instilling a love for reading By Melissa Stewart


he Delhi Township Library welcomed May 3 special guest Ronald McDonald who shared with Sayler Park Elementary kindergartners a love for reading. “When I was a little clown I had good teachers who brought me to the library and taught me that it was a fun place to learn all kinds of things,” Ronald said just before his presentation. During the presentation, Book Time, Ronald showed the students just how fun reading is, treating them to an interactive story time, magic tricks, and juggling. The children hung on his every word as he brought the joy of reading to life, telling the students how they too can learn to juggle, perform magic tricks, and so much more by simply reading. Ronald’s presentation was the final installment of a four-part program Delhi Township Library Children’s Librarian Kathy Born started four years ago with her sister-in-law Maureen Born, a kindergarten teacher at Sayler Park. The goal, she said was to get children into the library. During the first visit students took a tour of the library and participated in a scavenger hunt. The kids also completed an art project, heard some stories, and were able to select a book to be checked out on their teacher’s card. They also have the opportunity to sign up for a library card. Children’s author and illustrator, Will Hillenbrand, visited with the students and even signed a copy of one of his books, presenting it to each child. The third visit included time with Julie Stubbs, a naturalist and educator, from Hamilton County Parks. She hosted a program on maple sugaring. In addition to Ronald’s presentation the final visit included a craft, a DVD highlighting the last three visits and a presentation of certificates of achievement to each student. “Our goal is to hopefully make life-long library users out of each child, to make them familiar with the resources at the library so that they feel comfortable and confident about later visiting with their family,” Kathy Born said.

Rebuilding year for Elder tennis? Panthers end season with winning record By Tom Skeen

PRICE HILL — It wasn’t long ago that Elder tennis coach Glenn Wauligman said this season was a rebuilding year for his Panthers. While they didn’t go undefeated or win the Greater Catholic League, they did finish the regular season 10-8 after starting 3-6. Their first six losses came against Covington Catholic and Highlands, the top two teams in Northern Kentucky, as well as St. Xavier, Moeller, Turpin and Seven Hills, who ended the season ranked in the top seven of The Cincinnati Enquirer Division I or II coaches’ polls. As the tide turned for the Panthers, four of their final seven wins came against teams ranked

or who were ranked in The Enquirer Division I poll at some point this season. They lost eight seniors to graduation last season and two previous junior varsity players to other sports. The only two varsity returners were senior Nathan Walroth and sophomore Andrew Cole. “I think when I paired (senior) John Miller with Cole, that is when things turned around,” Wauligman said. “You pair one guy with some experience with a guy who was a varsity player last year and they just gelled together.” The two finished the season 6-4 after spending just half the season paired together. Another key move for Wauligman was moving sophomores Luke Groene and Josh Patty from No. 1 doubles to No. 2. “They were playing decent, but it seemed like they were always losing in three sets,” he

said. “When I moved them, things started clicking and they just gelled. They are friends and it just took a couple of games and they just excelled.” According to Wauligman, the two have been deciding factors in multiple matches and have won seven of their last nine matches since moving to the No. 2 doubles position. The rock for the team has been Walroth. He is the Panthers’ No. 1 singles player and boasts a 15-6 record this season. He heads into sectional play as the No. 2 seed in singles action in the Division I Cincinnati bracket. “We can always count on him for a win,” Wauligman said. “He’s one of the captains with John Miller. He is a four-year starting varsity player and is going to Bellarmine next year. He’s a solid player, no doubt. He’s overpowering compared to most players and others aren’t used to

Elder sophomore Luke Groene has been a big part of the Panthers’ success this season. Ever since the move to the No. 2 doubles position with fellow sophomore Josh Patty, the duo has won seven of the final nine matches and been a deciding factor in multiple matches. THANKS TO GLENN WAULIGMAN

that. He just pounds the ball.” Senior Brandon Alverson has been another guy who has contributed to the team’s surprising success this season. “He has accepted his role as a durable singles player giving it all it takes every match,” Wauligman said. “Which has created a

Long yard sale passes this way

This is one team that found playing time in Price Hill. THANKS TO PRICE HILL HISTORICAL SOCIETY.

West Side baseball has always played well I just attended the Price Hill Oldtimers annual banquet at The Farm. What a fabulous celebration of this aspect of our history. Honoring past and current athletes is a most noble undertaking. My first recollection of our national pastime was seeing full-bearded ballplayers from the House of David running the bases at Dempsey Park back in the early 1950s. I lived on Price Avenue at the time and passed by the park every day. Baseball has been played on the West Side for as long as we have have folks living west of the Mill Creek. My research with the Price Hill Historical Society has led to knowledge of Andy Gallagher, born in 1870, not long after the area became known as Price’s Hill. He supposedly played Sunshine League ball on Sunday mornings at Dempsey Park until he was in the mid-70s, often catching both games of doubleheaders. The Price Hill Historical Society has recently opened a

baseball room in its museum at 3640 Warsaw Ave. Many of the photos on display, such as the one with this article, are from the collection of the above-mentioned Price Hill Oldtimers. The plan of the PHHS is to improve this room creating a shrine to the oldtimers’ honorees. We could be the “Cooperstown” for West Side baseball. I am also

planning to publish a book on baseball in the West Side. We received an email from a women in Seattle asking if we had any information on her grandfather, John “Sunny Jack” Sutthoff. In researching his life I learned that he pitched for the Reds in 1901 and 1903. After he retired from baseball, he opened a bar on St. Lawrence corner where Eagle Savings and Loan building was until it burned down a couple of years ago. He lived in Price Hill most of his life until he died in 1942 at age 69. As far as I know, John “Honest Jack” Boyle, who caught for the Reds in 1886 and played until 1898, was the first West Side boy to make it into the “bigs.” His younger brother, Eddie, also played in 1896. If anyone out there knows any different, email me at the Price Hill Historical Society at; photo 513-251-2888. Richard Jones is a member of the Price Hill Historical Society.

SPECIAL COLUMN This is my 150th column and in four months it will be five years since I started writing again for Community Press – Sept. 12, 2007 was my first one. The first original one I wrote was in March of 1988. I wrote two columns then – one for Sayler Park and one for entertainment.

else then the state right-ofway. The yard sales have no large sponsor. Promotions are being done by word of mouth, and social media by the people and communities who are participating. The official yard sale is over three days. There are no set hours, because advertising set hours usually never give the results the seller wants. It is also probable that many individual households will not decide to participate until just a day or two before the sale dates, without time to advertise. The best option for buyers is to locate a participating county and then just head down the road. The yard sale started in 2000, stretching across most of Indiana. The goal is for it to grow into a large coast-tocoast event held each year on the weekend before the Memorial Day. The Great U.S. 50 Yard Sale also serves to promote tourism along U.S. 50, and to unite the many diverse communities. It provides opportunities for fund raising by civic organizations, to aids the environment through recycling what would end up in the trash. Best of all it provides a low-cost opportunity for individuals to enjoy a great weekend of sales. The national coordinator for the U.S. 50 Yard Sale is Tom Taylor of North Vernon, Ind.; email him at if you want fore information about who is participating go to Betty Kamuf is a winner of Griffin Yeatman Award for Historical Preservation.

Bran muffin batter can be kept in refrigerator

When the kids were younger and something went haywire in their lives, they would wonder why. I would say “there’s a reason for everything.” Those are what we call “teachable moments.” Well, the same thing happened to me yesterday at suppertime. I asked my husband, Frank, if we had gas in the grill since I had a nice flat iron steak thawed out. The answer was “yes,” so he took the steak out to the grill. Then the answer Rita got Heikenfeld switched to RITA’S KITCHEN “no.” We were out of gas. I didn’t want to use the stovetop grill pan (too messy) so I used the broiler. Oh my gosh, the steak turned out perfect. And I can’t tell you how long it’s been since I broiled any kind of meat. Now I’m a fan of broiling again. So even when you’re older, there are still teachable moments.

Broiled flat iron steak

I’ve mentioned before how much I like this cut of meat. It has the tenderness of beef tenderloin and the beefy flavor of chuck, since it is part of the chuck. This method works for flank steak as well. Score steak with knife on both sides. Rub with olive oil, then rub in a bit of garlic on each side. Season with salt and pepper. Broil 4 inches under broiler, about 6 minutes or so on each side for medium.

Always-ready refrigerator bran muffins The batter can be kept tow to three weeks in the refrigerator. Next time I make the batter, I’m going to use part whole wheat flour. My batter lasted two weeks before I used it up. Not a real sweet muffin. I love having this batter on an as-needed basis. 3 cups whole bran breakfast cereal (not flakes) 1 cup boiling water 1 cup brown sugar, packed 1 stick butter 3 large eggs

Thyme: A pretty border herb. Deer generally stay away from areas where thyme is grown. Oregano: A few wet oregano sprigs, placed on grill before grilling red meats, may help block carcinogens that form. Savory: The bean herb, it helps you digest beans. An ingredient in salt-free herb blends. Rosemary: Good for memory and contains anti-cancer antioxidants. In our area, it is hardy to about 15 degrees outside, so bring indoors in winter.

The batter for these bran muffins can be kept in the refrigerator and baked on an as-needed basis. THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD. 2½ cups all-purpose flour 1 tablespoon baking soda ½ teaspoon salt 2 cups buttermilk (I used whole buttermilk) 1½ teaspoons vanilla Extra sugar for sprinkling on top (raw sugar is good) optional

Add water to cereal and stir until cereal is moistened. Set aside. Cream brown sugar with butter until smooth. Add eggs and beat until light. Stir in flour, baking soda, salt, buttermilk and vanilla until blended. If not baking at once, transfer to

container, cover and refrigerate 2-3 weeks. When ready to bake, spoon mixture, about ¼ cup for each muffin, into buttered or sprayed muffin tins, filling 2⁄3 full. Sprinkle with sugar. Bake in preheated 400 degree oven for 15-20 minutes or so until golden. Variations: Sprinkle one tablespoon of any of these over each muffin before baking: Chopped dried fruit, blueberries, chocolate chips, nuts or a combination of two.

Planting herbs

You can plant different kinds of herbs together in the same container as long as they have the same soil, water and light requirements. Flavors of sweet and savory herbs do not transfer. Basil: Plant basil next to your tomatoes for better tasting, healthier tomatoes. Basil helps keep flies and mosquitoes away. Mint: Really invasive, so best grown in a container. Mint keeps ants away. Spearmint is sweeter and more mild than peppermint.

Update: Brown Hotel Hot Browns

The original recipe contains 1 quart whipping cream. I understand now the recipe can be made with 2 cups, if you like. Someone asked if they could substitute milk. Yes, half-amd-half, whole or regular milk would work fine. The sauce won’t be as rich, so you might want to add a bit more flour. Rita Nader Heikenfeld is an herbalist, educator and author.

Mount chief information officer is a Frye Fellow Will attend Frye Institute Keith Weber, the chief information officer at the College of Mount St. Joseph, was recently selected as a 2012 Frye Fellow, a prestigious honor for higher education information technology professionals. In addition, Weber received a full scholarship for the cost of the Frye Leadership Institute which June 3-8 in Washington, Weber D.C. The Frye Leadership Institute brings together leaders in colleges and universities to discuss key higher education issues including new sources of competition, use of technology to support effective teaching and student

learning and a transformation in the qualities necessary for leadership in today’s rapidly-changing environment. The Frye Fellows this year will hear from speakers from a wide range of backgrounds who will provide real-life problems faced by higher education institutions and participants will be challenged to devise and propose solutions. Weber joined the Mount eight years ago and is in charge of the college’s instructional technology, administrative computing, library, and institutional research areas. With his leadership in researching various approaches to strategic planning and institutional assessment, Weber helped the Mount develop a threeyear plan to adjust to address issues confronting all higher education institutions. “The Frye Institute is a tremendous opportunity

for the Mount to have a representative talking with colleagues from Harvard and the University of California-Berkeley about solutions to many information technology issues affecting all colleges and universities,” Weber said. “Technology is constantly changing

and to be competitive for our students, we need to make sure we can address these issues.”

In addition to Weber, 40 institutional leaders were selected as this year’s Frye Fellows.

Weber is a graduate of the Ohio State University and received his M.B.A. from Ashland University.

McGrath is a thirdgrade teacher at St. Teresa of Avila School, and her efforts to make the school more green earned her the 2012 Eco Environmental Education Award from the Cincinnati Earth Day committee. “I was encouraged by the recognition,” she said. “It’s always nice to be honored, and it makes you feel like you’re working hard.” St. Teresa Principal Sharon Willmes said McGrath has established many environmentally friendly activities at the school, and she recently planned a Green Ribbon Week in which each day of the week was devoted to a recycling or environmental theme. Willmes said McGrath organizes the school’s recycling program and supervises the Green Club as well.

seven years ago when she started coordinating the recycling program. Students and staff recycle everything from paper and aluminum cans to plastic bottles and bottle caps, she said. Based on her experiences overseeing the recycling program, she said she established the school’s Green Club. “I thought it would be a good way to increase our student and parental involvement in helping our school become more green,” McGrath said. The club is in its third year and it’s comprised of about 35 students in third-, fourth- and fifthgrade, she said. Students in the club help McGrath with the recycling program, help plant flowers and water the school’s gardens, volunteer with the annual

Great American Cleanup event, encourage their family and friends to be more environmentally conscience and learn about the three “R’s” associated with protecting the earth - reduce, reuse, recycle. McGrath said she enjoys working with the students and seeing the excitement they bring to Green Club. “They are very committed to helping the environment,” she said. “They really understand the three ‘R’s.’” Caring for the earth is also a great way for the students to live their Catholic faith, she said. She never wants them to forget why it’s important for people to protect our planet. “I hope they will …think about how to practice the three ‘R’s. I truly hope it will be a lifetime practice for them.”

Grant funds Mount co-op positions The College of Mount St. Joseph received a $50,000 grant from The Carol Ann and Ralph V. Haile, Jr./U.S. Bank Foundation for student co-op positions with the Hamilton County Jobs and Family Services (HCJFS). This is the second consecutive year the Mount has received this grant which funds Mount students’ co-op positions with HCJFS. It is a win-win opportunity for both groups – Jobs And Family Service gains valuable employee support with students’ salaries paid by a grant. This past year, nine students, including majors from business administration, com-

munication studies, criminology, and sociology, received co-op positions with HCJFS. “The value of the Mount’s strong liberal arts core curriculum is evident since we’re able to offer these co-op positions to students pursuing a variety of majors,” said Jen Franchak, director of the career and experiential education center at the Mount. “Thanks to the generous support provided by this grant, students at the Mount are able to provide a service to HCJFS and also gain valuable social service experience this organization provides.”

ward to working with the St. Paul UMC family,” Senior Pastor Richard ColdFightmaster well said.

From 1998 to 2000 she served as a US-2 Missionary/Campus Ministry As-

sistant at the University of Northern Iowa Wesley Foundation. Then she moved to New York to head recruitment ofyoung adult mission personnel through the General Board of Global Ministries.

In 2005 she returned to the Cincinnati area as director of student minis-

tries of Westwood UMC and the Wesley Chapel Mission Center. She also held a similar position at Miami Whitewater UMC in Harrison from 20082011.

Camps captures ‘pick-up games’ Remember when there was a knock on the door and a neighbor would ask your mom if you could come out to play…? Remember what playing in the neighborhood was like when you were a kid? Laffalot Summer Camps owner and director Pat Nymberg does and she tries her best to bring it back. That is the mindset that Laffalot uses to continually improve their program; give the campers variety, make the games fun, and let them play. It is Laffalot’s blend of fun and athletics, which includes traditional sports as well as many non-traditional games, like scooter basketball, crazy ball and base chase, that attracts campers and brings them back year after year. Laffalot Summer Camps will be held at Seton and Elder high schools the week of June 11-15 as well as Visitation School (July 30-Aug. 3), St. Vivian (July 9-13), and St. Ignatius (July 23-27). The cost for a child is $102 per week. Camp runs from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. For a complete listing of 2012 Laffalot Summer Camp locations visit
