Students help food pantry

Donation helps purchase of delivery van By Heidi Fallon

Thanks to the generosity of Oak Hills High School students, the Anderson Ferry Food Pantry has been able to buy a much-needed van. Matt Miller, director of the Delhi Township pantry at 380 Greenwell Ave., calls the $10,000 donation “a fantastic gesture.” “Oak Hills High School has been wonderful to us and this was incredible,” Miller said. The students raised more than $30,000 for local charities from the school’s annual hunger walk and sent $10,000 of it to the pantry. “We were able to use that money to buy the new van we so desperately needed,” Miller said. “Our old (van) is just toast and we were using cars to pick up and deliver the food. “This isn’t a new van, but it runs great and is heavy-duty enough that we can pick up furHEIDI FALLON/STAFF niture as well as the food.

Camp will empower girls

St. Al’s principal headed to retirement

By Kurt Backscheider

By Heidi Fallon

Ed Jung loved his job so much, he said he never really minded the early hours and frequent late nights. Despite his passion for education, the St. Aloysius on the Ohio principal is retiring. Jung, who grew up in Cheviot and now lives in Delhi Township, spent 38 years with the Cincinnati system before coming to the Sayler Park school. His six sons preceded Jung at their parish school. “My sons all went here, so I was familiar with the school and we’ve been a member of the parish since 1978,” he said. “It’s been a wonderful experience. The kids are great, the staff is wonderful and the parents are very supportive. I’ve been very fortunate to have a job that’s been a fun thing to do and I’ve enjoyed every day of it. “It’s been a great gig.” Named to replace Jung is Rick Harrmann, who most recently was principal at St. John the Baptist School in Colerain Township. “Ed has been an excellent principal for us and did a lot to promote the school and our student

Rick Dressman, parish priest. With 23 applicants for Jung’s job, Dressman said he and a committee of parents and parish members had a hard task picking Jung’s successor. “Rick will bring the same dedication and commitment to Catholic education as Ed. It was a difficult decision, but we are confident we made the right choice.” Ben Schmidt, a parish member and parent of St. Al graduates who has devoted countless hours to landscaping the school and church grounds, said he’s sad to see Jung leaving. “I’ve know Ed for a long time and he’s been a plus for our

school,” Schmidt said. “He’s supported me with the Earth Day program and he’s always been able to involve our students and parents in school activities. I wish him well.” Jung said traveling is at the top of his immediate retirement to-do list. He also said he has a bucket list of places to see and things to do. “I’ve always wanted to go to Alaska. That’s been high on my bucket list. My wife, Lin, and I are also planning to visit Napa Valley,” he said. “I would like to find some sort of part-time job eventually, just to keep busy.” For more about your community, visit

Leslie Chasteen said it’s not always easy to be a young girl. So, she’s organizing a summer camp to help young girls handle the variety of challenges they face today. Chasteen, the director of recruitment at Seton High School, is leading a Girl Power camp this summer to encourage young girls to make friends, have fun and be empowered. “One of my passions is working with younger girls,” she said. “This is a really critical time for the development of their self-concept.” Seton’s first-ever Girl Power camp is open to girls in fifththrough eighth-grade. The camp runs Tuesday, Aug. 2, to Friday, Aug. 5, for girls in fifth- and sixth-grade; and the camp for girls in seventh- and eighth-grade is Tuesday, Aug. 9, to Friday, Aug. 12. Camp hours are 9 a.m. to noon Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, and 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Friday. Chasteen, a 2006 Seton graduate, said she coordinated a weekly Girl Power camp for three years while she was a community serv-

ice scholar at Wittenberg University. “It was a huge part of my college experience,” she said. “I enjoyed it so much. “Needless to say, these girls became a very important part of my life. Continuing the program is a tribute of sorts to all of my Girl Power girls throughout the years,” she said. The camp will feature various activities, including walks and dances designed to get students active and on their feet. Chasteen said each day focuses on a different aspect of self-improvement. The girls will also talk with Seton students each day about some of the daily issues women experience – issues like body image concerns and peer pressure. She said facing these challenges is always better with a friend at one’s side. “I want Girl Power participants to know that they can be who they are,” she said. “The motto of the camp is, ‘Make friends, have fun and be empowered.’” She said she wants par-


ticipants to learn how to explore, set goals for themselves and step out of their comfort zones to make new

friends. Each day will end with a creative craft, one of which is making a “dream box” girls can use for writing down and saving goals and inspirations. “Seton is an all-girls Catholic high school that is committed to equipping young women with the skills they need to succeed,” Chasteen said. “The values I teach at Girl Power are ones that were enriched during my time at Seton. Among these are leadership, faith, service, confidence and compassion.” She said the program allows Seton to give back and share empowerment with a younger generation in a new, fun way. The camp costs $25, which includes a daily takehome craft, a Girl Power Tshirt and lunch on Friday. Learn more about the camp activities and register at

Oak Hills updating super evaluation By Kurt Backscheider

The Oak Hills Local School District board of education is updating its guidelines for evaluating the district’s superintendent. School board members had a special meeting at the district office June 9 to discuss the new Ohio Superintendent Evaluation System. “The current evaluation system we use in Oak Hills has been in place for quite a few years,” said School Board President Steve Schinkal. “With all the changes and all the new challenges in education, the board decided it was time to upgrade to a higher standard.” The Buckeye Association of School Administrators and the Ohio Department of Education have introduced a new voluntary evaluation system school boards can use to measure the performance of superintendents. School board members and superintendents from across the state designed the new system to promote

1993. Sears and the board members went through five key functions in the superintendent’s job description, defining the superintendent’s responsibilities in the following areas: • Vision, continuous improvement and focus of district work • Communication and collaboration • Policies and governance • Instruction; and • Resources Schinkal said the new evaluation system provides a goal-driven set of performance standards for the superintendent. “We were long overdue for an update,” he said. “This is a 21st-century model. This gets us to a level where we should be for today.” The board will meet with Sears again in August to establish three or four specific goals for the superintendent to meet next school year. The third step in the process is a mid-year evaluation and the final step is an end-of-year evaluation.

Students, parents make plea to save German courses By Kurt Backscheider

Bridget Shen said cutting the German language program for middle school students in the Oak Hills Local School District is not in the best interest of students. Shen, who taught German at Delhi Middle School for 10 years before resigning at the end of this school year to raise a family, is helping lead efforts to save the German program at the middle school level. Shen and a group of

high levels of leader effectiveness, professional growth and ongoing dialogue between school boards and superintendents. Oak Hills leaders are working with Bill Sears, a consultant with the Hamilton County Educational Service Center, to implement the new system. Sears, a retired educator who worked in the Sycamore Community School District for many years and also served as superintendent for Lebanon City Schools, said Oak Hills, Forest Hills and Reading are the first districts in the county to adopt the new system. “I facilitate the process,” he said. “We’re at the beginning stages here in Oak Hills.” At June 9’s special board meeting, the board started the first step in a four-step process. The board reviewed and updated the district’s standardsbased job description for the superintendent. Schinkal said Oak Hills hasn’t updated its description of what is expected of the superintendent since

about 35 parents, students and former students attended the Oak Hills board of education meeting Monday, June 6, to encourage district leaders to keep the program. Oak Hills officials have been considering cutting German language classes for sixth- and seventhgrade students. “We understand the district has to make cuts, but we feel like there has to be another way,” Shen said. “It’s an incredible program.” School board President Steve Schinkal said the district offers elective courses

in sixth- and seventh-grade that provide a semester of foreign language experience. Students spend nine weeks in German and nine weeks in Spanish, and when they reach eighthgrade they can enroll in German I or Spanish I for high school credit. Schinkal said with the resignation of two of the three middle school German teachers, the district was considering dropping the sixth- and seventh-grade German courses. He said in the proposal the board has considered, the two teachers who have

resigned would not be replaced, saving the district about $98,000. Shen said eliminating the opportunity for sixth- and seventh-graders to take German will hurt the German department because students will not have the chance to try the language out before they get to eighth-grade. “Right now they get to experience the language and culture prior to enrolling in German I,” she said. “It’s just a matter of exposure.” Shen is concerned cutting the courses will lead to the demise of the German program in the district, as fewer students may be inclined to enroll in German when they reach eighthgrade or high school if they don’t get an opportunity to try it out in the younger grade levels. “Oak Hills has one of the best German programs in the country,” she said. “I’ve talked to hundreds of German teachers from around the country, and our program is the envy of other programs.” Oak Hills alumna Steph Fromhold attended the meeting to show support for the program. She graduated from Oak Hills in 2010, and she said she took German classes every year from sixth-grade through her senior year. “I’m just hoping for the best,” Fromhold said.

Delhi teen meets idol Dolly Parton By Heidi Fallon

Maria Backscheider’s dream came true. A devout Dolly Parton fan since she was 12, Backscheider got to meet her hero and idol at the country singer’s Dollywood theme park. The Oak Hills High School sophomore’s ticket to meeting Parton was an essay she wrote as a student at Delhi Middle School. The assignment was writing about her hero and her choice was obvious. Despite her teacher’s doubts about the subject matter, Backscheider persisted and got both an A and the attention of folks at the Dollywood Foundation. Backscheider’s mom, Julie, sent the essay and a few photos of her daughter to the foundation. Eight months went by and then came the invitation to meet Parton. Backscheider, her younger sister Kelly; mom Julie; and step-father Dan all trekked to Dollywood with no idea what to expect.


Maria Backscheider strikes a pose with her idol Dolly Parton at the country star’s Dollywood theme park. “We were one of seven families and we went to this restaurant in the park,” Backscheider said. Arriving more than an hour earlier than her date with Dolly, Backscheider said she wasn’t really nervous until Parton arrived. “It was just amazing. She stopped at every table and spent a lot of time talk-

ing with everyone,” the teen said. “When she sat down by me, I just sort of froze.” Backscheider said she had been fiddling with the disposal cameras everyone was given and accidentally hit the shutter with the flash in her own face. “I was practically blind when Dolly sat down and I was thinking what a great

first impression I was making. “We started talking and laughing and she was just so incredible. “She treated us like royalty. “One lady told her she had waited 30 years to meet her and I thought how I had only waited two years.” Backscheider said the 20 minutes or so that Parton spent talking with her and her family was “like a casual conversation with a friend.” Her mom said that watching her daughter meet her idol “was the best Mother’s Day present I could ever wish for.” “Every mother wants their child’s dreams to come true and Maria’s dream has been to meet Dolly,” Julie said. “It was a wonderful day and one none of us will ever forget.” Now that this dream has come true, Backscheider said she isn’t sure what her next one will be.

Elder High School junior Daniel Schwarz, right, successfully stole home against Glen Este during the the Division I sectional finals at Lakota West May 20. The run gave the Panthers a 3-0 lead, but they lost 8-7 in extra innings. Senior Jacob Lindsey, left, awaits the call.

Looking back at spring sports

Now that school is out and summer vacation has arrived, let’s take a look back at some of the top athletes and moments from the spring sports postseason.


Elder senior Andrew Schroeder became the first Panther to win a sectional tennis title since Rob Altenau in 2001.




Oak Hills sophomore shortstop Jake Richmond hit .342 this season.

La Salle High School senior Ethan Bokeno helped the Lancers to their second state track title in school history this year. He was also a state champion on La Salle’s 4x800 relay team with Rodriguez Coleman, Devon Steagall and Jaleel Hytchye.


Seton senior Alex Heekin looks to lay down a bunt against Northwest at the Best of the West Tournament April 15. The Saints finished the year 4-18.

Mother of Mercy High School’s Mary Jo Huismann served as the Bobcats’ athletic director for 39 years before retiring this spring. Husimann will continue to coach basketball at Mercy.


Oak Hills senior Ally Janson led the Lady Scots with a .362 average, 13 RBI and four doubles. Oak Hills finished 6-18.


Oak Hills sophomore Kevin Konkoly was named GMC Runner of the Year and qualified for state in the 400.


Oak Hills senior Jay Schunk hits a home run against Wyoming May 9. Schunk finished in the top five in the GMC in average (.434), home runs (five) and RBI (27) and helped the Highlanders to an 189 record and a runner-up league finish.


Elder senior Tim Baldrick, who threw a no-hitter this year, went 4-1 with a 2.45 ERA and had 51 strikeouts in 34.1 innings.

Anyone who knows me will tell you I’m a straight up guy. I’ve held off commenting on the erectile dysfunction controversy until I was able to really do my homework. Well the results are in. ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION IS A FACT OF LIFE Whether it occurs due to an accident, a recent surgery (prostate cancer is a biggie) or simply a natural change due to aging, the accompanying loss of self-esteem is something that affects millions of men everyday. In a nutshell that seems to be the problem (nobody want to admit that every man’s ED problem is different and requires different treatment.) WHAT COLOR IS YOUR FAVORITE PILL? Drug companies have jumped all over this like a, well...a drug company. I don’t have to say the names of the pills. We’ve all seen the ads. They’ve spent millions trying to convince you that one pill fits all... When in actuality they fail over 50% of the time. That’s just a fact.

The only approach that makes sense comes from a Company called Ohio Male Clinic. There’s one here in Woodbury. The Ohio Male Clinic specializes in ED. That’s it. That’s all they do. They seem to be the only ones who realize that ED affects every man differently. They have uniquely (and very successfully) combined 4 medically approved ingredients for ED into over 150 different formulations. These ingredients make “it” start happening immediately for over 95% of men (compare that statistic to those of the well known pills). In fact, the Ohio Male Clinic offers one simple promise. “If they can’t make “it” start happening on the first visit, you pay a cent.” That’s their guarantee. REGARDLESS OF YOUR AGE Regardless of your medical history... the Ohio Male Clinic have satisfied patients from 21 to 95. If you suffer from ED you should call Ohio Male Clinic today at (513) 791-MALE.

Girls ages 7 through college use techniques of beautifully choreographed dance and gymnastics all while holding their breath under water or beaming with smiles above it. No other sport requires such demanding strength, endurance, flexibility, grace and artistry. And Cincinnati’s renowned YMCA Synchrogators have all of it. After winning first place in all four age divisions at the Ohio Association Championships, Ohio’s highest ranked nationally competitive synchronized swim team – the Cincinnati YMCA Synchrogators – are now preparing 17 routines that just qualified in a Toledo Regional Championship for the U.S. National Championships in Seattle beginning June 24.

Last week’s question

Do you believe cell phones are possible cancer-causing agents, putting them in the same category as the pesticide DDT?

Award finalist

Seton High School junior Emma Lindle was a junior class finalist for the 46th annual Simon Lazarus Jr. Human Relations Awards, sponsored by the American Jewish Committee. The awards honor teens who tutor, work with the elderly and organize their classmates in compassionate service. Lindle works with the homeless and involves other teens in volunteering. She is pictured community volunteer Danya Karram, one of the judges.

“I have no idea about such a claim and it appears that even the ‘experts’ can’t agree.” B.N. “Absolutely. I also believe there was a shooter on the grassy knoll in Dallas, Barack Obama wasn’t born in Honolulu, and the government caused 9/11. Give me a break.” M.S. “More studies have to be conducted before we start putting cancer causing disclaimers on cell phones. For every claim that says they do promote cancer, there is a study that says the opposite. “Folks should be more concerned about the loss of hearing being an epidemic in a few years due to the high decibels being drummed through ear-buds. “Good heavens, I see toddlers with ear-buds attached to everything from a portable DVD player to an iPod.” C.A.S. “I would not know whether they cause cancer, funny thing I have never used a cell phone but just lost half my ear to cancer. “To bad I had not used a cell phone or maybe I could sue for millions of dollars similar to the tobacco suits.” L.S. “Cell phones are in the same cancer category as DDT. Also in the same category is coffee and similar harmless substances. “A bigger hazard is what is happening (or not happening) when hours a day are spent NOT communicating with other human beings but only with electronic remnants of them.” D.H. “I sure hope not! Our world relies on cell phones so much it would be hard to talk people out of their cell phones. Especially my grandchildren! “In some ways it makes sense that using a cell phone could cause cancer. Just as the use of microwave ovens caused a panic years ago, the cell phone scare will encourage the government to check into the possibility and make tough decisions if needed.” K.K. “Based on what I have read so far, cell phones are possible cancer-causing agents. Obviously, more research should be done as this could be serious… I hope they don’t fudge the numbers like they did with the global warming data.” D.K.

Stories few on old Home City School Very few anecdotes about the old Home City School exist. If you happen to find one, they are gems. Rene Cipriani came across some old P.T.A. Bulletins’ from 1951 called The Oak Branch. The February issue tells a story about the old Home City School written by Edith Knaul. There were many fires at the old school, because the janitor left kindling or paper lying around in the cellar. Most were small and the firemen from across the street armed with fire extinguishers, sneaked into the cellar and put out the blaze. On these occasions the pupils had “fire drills” in blissful ignorance of the reason for these drills. However, one day in the late 1920s there was a class taking place in the auditorium. A pupil, Harvey Shepard, saw a red glow. There was a fire in the space around the smoke flue of the large stove in the auditorium. Harvey ran to the fire-gong, pulled the cord and sent the loud-clangs

through the building. The teacher sent another student to Mr. Chidlaw, the principal. There was a fire drill, and all the students came Betty Kamuf out safely. The Community fire department, that was next to Press guest the Parkland columnist Theater, came across the street and laid hoses down and put out the fire. It was all over before noon and the school was closed, and all the children sent home. It was a raw chilly day and all the children’s parents were not home, so neighbors took all the children in and let them get warm. Edith Knaul, who lived next to the Episcopal Church in Fernbank, didn’t know about the fire. She went to Mrs. Yunker’s store, a few doors away from the school, and noticed fire hoses around the

This is a rare photo of Home City School in Sayler Park. school, and the children were gone. When she wanted to buy food she noticed all of the baked goods, cold cuts, candy and fruit were gone. Mrs. Yunker told her that a fire broke out shortly before noon and all the students that had lunch money spent it there. The ones who never had any money she gave lunch freely. Edith was afraid something like this might happen because there were so many small fires in the cellar. There were so many pot bellied stoves and the steps were all wooden. She was worried because she didn’t know where her children were. Mrs. Yunker told that all the children were safe, and probably in the homes of their classmates. Edith never found where my boys had gone, until they finally appeared at home later in the afternoon. But she found that her daughter had been taken by Mrs. Hensler, a few houses from the school. Mrs. Hensler had taken in


as many children as she could get in her house. She comforted the shivering children and sat the shivering little bodies around the living-room and kitchen stoves. Edith went to Mrs. Hensley’s, but found her daughter had gone home. She cried with relief when she found what Mrs. Hensler had done. This catastrophe started a campaign to the Cincinnati Board Of Education to build a safe modern building, with central heat and metal stairways. The campaign was successful and a new school was built in a corn field on Home City Avenue. The new Sayler Park elementary opened in September 1929. Sayler Park Elementary is now under a massive renovation to upgrade it to a modern school building. Betty Kamuf is a winner of Griffin Yeatman Award for Historical Preservation. She lives in Sayler Park. You can email her at westnews@

Water protects public health, provides family fun Summertime and water. What would summer be like without a dip in the pool, a run through the sprinkler or a cold glass of tap water on a hot muggy day? People use water every day for both recreational uses and household uses such as cooking, cleaning and bathing. At Greater Cincinnati Water Works, our job is to provide you with a dependable supply of the highest quality water each and every time you turn on the tap, fill up the pool or let your children run through the sprinkler. During the past century, many improvements in the health, prosperity and longevity of the U.S .population can be attributed to improvements in water quality. For the past 100 years, GCWW has been a leader in developing and implementing those improvements. In 1907 amidst a national

typhoid outbreak, GCWW built the second water treatment plant in the United States to use rapid-sand filtration and cases of typhoid Biju George in Cincinnati draCommunity dropped matically. Press guest In 1928 columnist water works pioneered powdered activated carbon filtration. Then in 1992, we became the first utility in the nation to implement granular activated carbon treatment with the ability to clean the carbon on-site so it can be reused. Granular activated carbon is cited by the USEPA as one of the best available treatment technologies to remove impurities, such as pharmaceuticals, during drinking

water treatment. Soon we'll add another step – ultraviolet disinfection (UV) to protect against potential microorganisms like cryptosporidium. When operational at the end of 2012, GCWW will be the largest water utility in North America to use UV following sand filtration and granular activated carbon. At GCWW we have our eye on the future. Our engineers, water quality experts and water distribution and supply specialists constantly assess the needs of our customers, identifying areas of demand, monitoring and upgrading our infrastructure and developing a plan to keep water flowing. All the while members of our information technology, business and billing teams research and implement the latest technologies to help keep us on the cutting edge of quality and service.

On behalf of every GCWW employee, I am proud to report that our water meet or exceeded all state and federal health standards in 2010, as it always has. So the next time you fill your swimming pool or water glass, wash your fruits and vegetables or bathe your children, take comfort in knowing that more than 600 people at Greater Cincinnati Water Works take care each and every day to bring you life's necessity – water. To view our 2010 Water Quality Report, which highlights our extensive water quality monitoring and state-of-the-art treatment process, visit Biju George is interim director, Greater Cincinnati Water Works.

Ten characteristics of a good father don’t care what happens to you.” 7. Use praise more than criticism. Punishment is to stop bad behavior, praise is to reinforce and encourage good behavior. Humans never tire of being appreciated. 8. Play together. Spontaneity, games, laughter and recreation create strong bonds and happy memories. They even keep aging dads young at heart. 9. Keep your job in a healthy perspective. The two most important aspects of our lives are the work we do and the love we share. In our day, work-time, money and success are overvalued, and love for children and spouse is risked or undervalued. Keep your priorities straight. 10. Demonstrate what it means to be a man. Primitive-type men repress their emotions (except anger). They consider it unmanly to cry and grieve over significant losses, to act or speak sensitively and be compassionate as well as firm.

interest to many a man’s life, a good father does not permit these to stand out as contemporary gods. Father Richard Rohr writes, “The most loving men I have met, the most generous to society and to life, are usually men who also have a lusty sense of life, beauty, pleasure and sex – but they have very realistic expectations of them.” 6. Set parameters. Most people mistake license for freedom. Freedom does not mean being able to do everything and anything we want, but everything we ought. Setting limits produces disciplined and mature offspring. Paradoxically, children seek parameters. Some fathers think they show love for their children by permitting them to do whatever they want. Children’s natural intuition is wiser. Though they gripe about rules, children unconsciously want them. Prudent rules imply parents care enough and love them. No rules imply “You’re a bother to my life, I

1. Show your children what real love is. The best thing a father can do for his children is to love their mother. Children learn what real love is not from movies or TV scripts, but by modeling – seeing it lived out before their eyes. Growing up in an atmosphere of genuine love teaches kids to feel secure and learn how to love. Love is demonstrated not only in signs of affection and sensitivity, but also in our ability to forgive and sacrifice for the ones we love. 2. Respect. A child’s personal self must not be suffocated or utterly dominated by another, especially by a trusted parent. Separateness must be acknowledged – that I am me and you are you, I have my feelings and you have yours. Though family discipline must be exercised by parents, it must be accomplished in age-appropriate ways without crushing developing egos. 3. Spend quality one-

on-one time. To choose to spend time with our child is a powerful sign to him or her. That doesn’t mean a quantity of time watching TV but qualitative time affording opportunity for all kinds of conversation and interaction. Such a choice says, “You’re important to me and I want to know you better, I want to share what’s inside me with you, and you with me.” 4. Teach values by living them. Honesty, truthfulness, responsibility, dependability, faithfulness, etc. are not just pointed out and verbally extolled. They must be the path being traveled by dad and mom. 5. Acknowledge by your words and actions that you believe God exists. In days of yore, a false machismo boasted that “religion is only for women and children.” A more realistic and intelligent contemporary attitude says, “Spirituality is an important part of everyone’s life.” Though sports, entertainment, and sexual beauty may add zest and

“ This new valve can save lives



Cardiologists with The Christ Hospital Are First in Greater Cincinnati Region to Perform Heart Valve Replacement without Open Heart Surgery Aortic stenosis (AS) results from the hardening or narrowing of the aortic valve; AS obstructs the flow of oxygen-rich blood from the heart to the rest of the body. It is one of the two most common heart valve problems in the United States and ranks among the top five Medicare cardiac diagnoses. Patients with severe AS may experience chest pain, fatigue, shortness of breath, lightheadedness or fainting. Although AS typically progresses slowly without symptoms, once symptoms occur the prognosis is guarded and survival is limited. Treatment of AS has traditionally involved open heart surgical valve replacement, which has considerable morbidity and mortality in elderly, frail individuals with complicating medical issues. Now, physicians at The Carl and Edyth Lindner Center for Research and Education at The Christ Hospital are involved in a clinical research study (The PARTNER II Trial) using the Edwards SAPIEN XT valve. This allows doctors to replace the aortic valve without open heart surgery by using a catheter instead. The Christ Hospital is the only center between Atlanta, Georgia and Cleveland, Ohio to offer this novel, less invasive valve trial. Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) provides a treatment option for patients with symptomatic AS who are not candidates for traditional valve replacement surgery. “Unfortunately, elderly patients with multiple medical problems may not survive traditional valve surgery,” says Dean Kereiakes, M.D., principal investigator in Cincinnati for The PARTNER II Trial and medical director at The Lindner Center for Research and Education and The Christ Hospital Heart and Vascular Center. “Our goal in joining The PARTNER II Trial is to provide a new treatment option and hope for these individuals.”

PATIENT STORIES “I couldn’t walk 20 feet without having to sit down. The day I had the procedure, I walked 25 feet and was fine. I’m Bill Whitt again.” William Whitt, 85, who suffered from AS and heart failure symptoms, had TAVR at The Christ Hospital on May 5, 2011.

John Metzger is 82. Because of a failing heart due to AS he had trouble breathing. Last September, recognizing his patient couldn’t wait until the new procedure was approved in Cincinnati, Dr. Kereiakes sent John to Cleveland for TAVR.

“Traveling was difficult and inconvenient for my family. Had this procedure been available in Cincinnati, I would have received it right here, at home.” John Metzger, a Cincinnati resident, had TAVR in Cleveland, in September 2010.

Green brings Kentucky Fresh to cooking world

I love Maggie Green’s cookbook titled, aptly, The Kentucky Fresh Cookbook (The University Press of Kentucky, $29.95). Maggie, a Kentucky native, has stirred up a big batch of recipes which are destined to become family favorites. I have known Maggie for a long time, and even though she is a true celebrity on the culinary circuit, you’d never know that when meeting her. Maggie is a genuine person, not one to tell you her accomplishments, which include close professional and personal relationships with some of the icons of the food world, like Ethan and Susan Becker (Joy of Cooking) and Shirley Corriher (Cook Wise, Bake Wise). I first heard of Maggie through Cincinnati Magazine way back when. I spied her “Green Apron” ad

there. F o r y e a r s , Maggie h a s offered personal c h e f , catering, Rita e d i t i n g Heikenfeld and conRita’s kitchen s u l t i n g services. As a registered dietitian (she started out in college in engineering and did a complete turn to nutrition), Maggie’s passion is helping folks eat better. Her book takes you through a whole year of recipes. It’s an engaging read on its own. You’ll feel like you’re right next to her, helping dice the celery, knead the bread, all the while having fun and learning from an expert. This is one cookbook

that I’ll be looking to when I need a fresh approach to old favorites, or a new recipe for a special occasion. I asked her to share a favorite for Father’s Day. She didn’t disappoint. Check out Maggie’s web page for interesting and timely tips.

Maggie Green’s flat iron steak with brown sugar rub

“My favorite recipe. It’s a flavorful cut of steak that’s versatile and delicious on the grill with this rub,” Maggie told me. Makes 8 servings A newer cut of meat to the market is a flat iron steak. This steak comes from a modified version of a top blade roast, a cut of beef from the shoulder of the cow. For years, butchers were

faced with a problem-what to do with the blade roast-a relatively tender and beefy cut of meat but with a tough piece of connective tissue running down the center. Researchers from Nebraska devised a method of cutting the blade roast to remove the tough connective tissue, leaving a large, flat piece of beef from the “top” of the roast. This top blade steak (or flat iron steak) weighs about 2 pounds and is evenly thick. The steak resembles a triangularshaped iron, thus the name flat iron steak. This method resulted in the rising popularity of the flat iron steak, all from a humble cut which barely made it out of the back of the meat case. A simple brown sugar rub enhances this beefy tender flat iron steak. One 2-pound beef chuck flat iron steak 2 tablespoons brown sugar 1 tablespoon garlic powder 1 tablespoon onion powder 1 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper

Lay the steak in a shallow baking dish. To prepare the rub: mix the brown sugar, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and black pepper together. Evenly distribute half of the rub over the top of the steak and rub all over the surface of the meat. Flip the steak and repeat with the remaining rub. Let stand for 30 min-

utes at room temperature. reheat grill to mediumhigh. Place the steak on the grill and cook for 5 minutes. Watch carefully to ensure the sugar doesn’t burn. Flip and cook for about 5 more minutes for mediumrare, 6 more minutes for medium and 8 more minutes for medium-well or well done. Remove from the grill to a platter, cover with foil, and let rest for 10 to 15 minutes before slicing.

Twice baked potatoes with bacon and cheese

This is what I’ll be serving alongside Maggie’s steak for husband, Frank. 4 baking potatoes 4 tablespoons butter 8 oz. sour cream

11⁄2 cups shredded cheddar 8 strips bacon, fried and crumbled 4 green onions, sliced (white and green part both) Salt and pepper to taste Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Bake potatoes 1 hour or until tender. Cool slightly. Reduce heat to 350 degrees. Cut each in half lengthwise and scoop out pulp, leaving thin shells. Mash pulp with butter. Stir in rest of ingredients. Pile mixture into shells. Bake 30-35 minutes or until heated through. Serves eight. Rita Nader Heikenfeld is an herbalist, educator and author.

Fire dept. making summer nights safe The Cincinnati Fire Department’s Safe Summer Nights Program reaches out to more neighborhoods in June. The program ends September 29th. For the last 12 years, CFD has provided a Safe Summer Nights Program to educate, distribute and install smoke and carbon monoxide alarms within all Cincinnati neighborhoods. The program has been sustained through the support of the American Red Cross, State Farm Insurance and a federal fire prevention and safety grant. Overall, since the program started, the Cincinnati Fire Department has distributed approximately:

• 32,340 smoke alarms, • 411 carbon monoxide alarms, and • 6,159 individually packaged batteries. Each Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday evening from 7-9 p.m. CFD fire companies will be distributing smoke alarms, carbon monoxide alarms, fire prevention educational materials, and batteries in neighborhoods throughout the summer. The fire department will be in Price Hill and Westwood June 21-23 and in Westwood and East Westwood on June 28-30. The Safe Summer Nights Program

also reaches out to Cincinnati residents who have smoke alarms that are 10 years or older. Smoke alarms continually monitor the air 24 hours a day and after 10 years, the components become less reliable and are more likely to fail. Since April of 1988, all residential buildings in the city of Cincinnati have been required to have working smoke alarms. All residential buildings must have smoke alarms installed outside of sleeping areas and on every level, such as basements, cellars and finished attics. Apartment owners are required to provide smoke alarms for their tenants.

New ant habitat display opens at Museum Center Cincinnati Museum Center has opened a new ant habitat display in the Museum of Natural History and Science. Hundreds of black carpenter ants (campanotus pennsylvanicus) will live in the habitat. This is the largest species of ant in Ohio and they range throughout most of eastern North America. Carpenter ants nest inside rotten logs, under the bark of logs, or in rotten wood of live or dead trees. They are often found in houses and can cause extensive damage. Visitors will have the chance to watch the ants

work digging tunnels, carrying eggs and larvae and might even get see the queen ant. The new habitat was funded by a grant from the Kenneth A. Scott Charitable Trust, a KeyBank Trust. The trust’s areas of interests include organizations and activities that protect native species and that promote the humane treatment of animals. Get an All Museums Pass for $12.50 for adults and $8.50 for kids. Members always receive free admission to all three museums. For details, visit or call 513-287-7000.

Chabot urges community to fight Section 8 housing By Marc Emral

Section 8 housing and Housing and Urban Development were the main topics U.S. Rep Steve Chabot (R–1st District) discussed at a town hall meeting June 8 at Nathanael Greene Lodge in Green Township. Chabot told about 175 people that he would urge the county to fight HUD’s plan to put 68 new public housing units in the township. “I’ve lived in Westwood for 50 years and I have seen the very detrimental effects (Section 8 housing) has on Westwood,” he said “Crime rate is up significantly. Drug dealing is up significantly. Property values are down significantly.” He said HUD’s threat of pulling federal money if the county does not go along with the plan should be fought. “My advice to you is to talk with the local offices, especially the commission-

housing who is a felon. • It is temporary, no more than five years. • Require the people who are receiving assistance to work. Among other points he made: • He said the economy is

still weaker “than we want to see it.” He thinks the American public and small businesses have a “lack of confidence” in the Federal government. • He would not vote to raise the debt ceiling. • On Medicare: “My mother and mother-in-law are on it. It needs to be saved. … It’s an important program.” • Health care: Even though the House voted to repeal President Barak Obama’s health care bill, the repeal is not likely to pass the senate and would be vetoed by the president. He thinks the bill will be ruled unconstitutional by the Supreme Court on a 5-4 vote. • Chabot said there needs to be less dependence on foreign energy sources. He is in favor of drilling for domestic oil, to

He thinks what Obama is doing is correct, in that he’s taking advice from military leaders on the ground. “My concern is that if we pull out right away the Taliban and Al Qaeda will be back in there,” he said. “The instability in Al Qaeda (after the killing of Osama bin Laden) will spill over to Pakistan” which has nuclear weapons. “I think we need further time of stabilize the region.” Chabot spoke to the crowd for about 30 minutes and then answered written

questions submitted in writing and asked by two members if his staff. He did not accept questions from the audience during the meeting. He did meet individually with people after the meeting ended. A group of about 20 gathered outside the lodge before the meeting protesting Chabot’s appearance and against the policies Republicans are advocating. Anne Uchtman of Cheviot, who works as a patient advocate at Mercy hospitals, said privatizing Medicare and Medicaid is not the answer. “I work in an industry with people who have medicine and can’t afford it,” Uchtman said. “We’re out here for the common good of people.” Carl Truman of Westwood said he is worried about the lack of health care options for people.
