Trustees ax agreement

The township has subscribed to the service with eCivis for several years to help officials find and apply for grant funding. The fee for the service is $2,500 per year. Township department heads told trustees they rarely use the site, relying on other sources for grant information.

Pay attention on Delhi Pike

Some drivers ignoring changes in traffic patterns By Heidi Fallon hfallon@communitypress.com

It’s drivers, not the design that’s causing safety concerns. Except for a few minor sign changes, Hamilton County traffic engineer Jeff Newby said the Delhi Road improvements are complete. However, both he and police Lt. Jeff Braun said drivers aren’t necessarily obeying the new safety features along the stretch from Anderson Ferry Road to Greenwell Avenue. “The safety benefits are in place with the reduction in driveway entrances and exits,” Braun said. “But we keep seeing drivers ignoring the restricted left turns and crossing five lanes of traffic. We believe that if the public were better educated and informed about the traffic patterns, the risk of accidents would decrease greatly.” Braun said there has not been an increase in traffic accidents along the pike since the improvements were done. Newby said the traffic lights now are timed HEIDI FALLON/STAFF and motion detecting devices installed on all Hamilton County traffic engineer Jeff Newby, left, and Delhi Township police Lt.

Residents bailing out By Heidi Fallon hfallon@communitypress.com

Delhi Township residents along Rapid Run Road once again were bailing out basements after a torrential rain June 10. Ron Ripperger, township public works director, said the rains came that Friday evening, flooding homes and forcing sections of the road from Neeb to Anderson Ferry to close or traffic detoured.

This wasn’t the first time Kim Patton has had to deal with flooding at her Rapid Run Road home. Patton and her fiance, Lance Bowman, spent days sorting through their belongings after the June 10 flood with help from a private contractor hired by the Metropolitan Sewer District.

The Metropolitan Sewer District, which is in the process of buying homes along that stretch in a joint project with the township, hired private contractors to help homeowners with the clean up. The township has received two federal grants to assist in the property purchases. Ripperger said the first phase involves nine homes, four of which owners have accepted offers. The second phase involves 13 homes. Kim Patton is in that second phase. Pausing as she lugged belongings ruined by the June 10 flood to the curb, Patton said this is the second major flooding problem she’s had.

“I’ve lived here 25 years and this is the second major flood I’ve had,” Patton said. “My finished basement is completely ruined.” Next door, Jason Schweitzer was doing the same thing - deciding what he could salvage and what had to be tossed. “I’ve only lived here six months,” he said, adding that he doesn’t own the property, just rents. “I’ve lost everything. The garage door just caved in and the back wall collapsed. “It’s a real mess.” Ripperger said he’s been alerting home owners to call MSD 352-4900 when flooding like this happens.

What started as a family farm selling produce has blossomed into a family business that’s celebrating its 80th anniversary. Robben Florist and Garden Center, 352 Pedretti Ave., is inviting folks to join in the celebration June 24-26. Ron Robben, the third generation owner, said there will be specials and prizes all weekend with a grillout starting 11 a.m. Saturday, June 25. What used to spread across 22 acres is now down to three with a few of the original wood and glass greenhouses still in use. “My grandfather, George senior, started the business,” Ron said. “Then, my dad, George junior, and his brother, Ray, expanded it specializing in cut flowers.” Ron became the owner in 2000 and relies on his dad and mom, Carol; his sister, Kim King; his wife, Melissa; and his 15-year-old son, Justin, to keep the family tradition growing. “I started, like Justin, as a kid, working after school and weekends,” Ron said. “Customer service is our key to success,” King said.

“We provide the service and knowledge people need to be successful with their own planting and gardening efforts,” Ron added. After getting his horticulture degree and working in Florida for a brief time, Ron said he actually missed the seven-day-a-week schedule the family business requires. “I guess I’m crazy, but I really missed it and knew it was time to come home,” he said. “The bulk of our business still is in cut flowers, but we do a lot of weddings and special events.” Along with his love of all things floral, Ron also inherited his father’s commitment to the community. George continues to tend to the gazebo along Delhi Road while Ron has been instrumental in the Planting Pride in Delhi project.

Annual charity car show rollin’ into Sayler Park hfallon@communitypress.com

Classic cars will roll into Fernbank Park Sunday, July 24, for the 22nd annual Rollin’ on the River Car Show. Sponsored by the Riverview-Delhi Hills Kiwanis, the car show again will be at Fernbank Park, Route 50 West, River Road, in Sayler Park. “This is always a great family and community event,” said Al Duebber, car show organizer. “And, it’s free.” “Last year we had 420 vehicles and we’re expecting 400 to 500 this year.” This is the first year for online pre-registration, Duebber said. He said he’s both surprised and pleased with the number of classic car owners signing up early to show off their vehicles.

Registration fees are $10 in advance and $15 the day of the show. Those opting to register the day of the show can do so starting at 9 a.m. The first 300 participants receive free dash plaques and gift bags. Judging by the Antique Auto Club of Northern Kentucky ends at 3 p.m. with the awards presentation at 3:30 p.m. The event includes music with disc jockey Rocky Stellatano, sponsored by Delhi Business Association. There also will be raffles and door prizes, and plenty of food and beverages. “As always, all proceeds will go to community projects and local charities,” Duebber said. “And, we always make donations to area schools.” For more details call Duebber 941-7700 or go to www.rollinontherivercar

Delhi installs park surveillance camera By Heidi Fallon hfallon@communitypress.com

Smile – you may be on camera. In a 2-1 vote June 15, Delhi Township trustees agreed to install a video surveillance camera at the Delhi Township Park. The $15,000 camera will be placed high atop a light pole near the skateboard plaza and concession stand. It will cost an estimated $1,000 to $2,000 a year in technical support services. Trustee Jerry Luebbers voted against the camera purchase, citing his view the township should be “looking for ways to save money, not spend it.” The township, like all municipalities, is bracing for cuts in local government funds and the estate tax elimination. Luebbers said the township could lose $1 million in general fund money by 2013. However, both Al Duebber and Mike Davis support-

ed the camera idea. Police Chief James Howarth had recommended the camera installation months ago when he was hoping for a grant to pay for it. The grant request was denied and Howarth said his department budget could not afford to buy the camera for the park. The police department was installing similar video equipment mandated by the state to tape interrogations. The park camera will be monitored through the same system the police department had to install. “If I could, I’d have cameras as many places as possible,” Howarth said. “They are a tool for us.” Duebber said he, too, was an advocate for video surveillance and has cameras at his business. Davis said he feels the camera will be both a deterrent and safety feature. For more about your community, visit www. cincinnati.com/delhitownship.

He ultimately served 12 years on Cincinnati City Council beginning in 1959 and served as mayor from 1967-71. His leadership included guiding the early transformation of downtown Cincinnati with the development of Riverfront Stadium (later named Cinergy Field), the establishment of the Cincinnati Bengals, and constructing the Dr. Albert B. Sabin Cincinnati Convention Center (now the Duke Energy Convention Center). Also, a new University Hospital and new Shriners Burns Institute (now Shriners Hospitals for Children) were built during that decade. He led efforts to heal the city after the 1967 riots in Avondale, reaching out to African-American communities and churches. He established the Cincinnati Human Relations Commit-

Contestants will stuff as many pickles in their mouths as possible at 5 p.m. Sunday.

Fundraising walk

The Mother of Mercy High School community recently raised money through Bobcats without Borders, the 36th annual Mercy Walk. Through a connection with Student Council’s Global Action Project, Mercy students were able to support Mercy Beyond Borders, an organization that targets Southern Sudan in south Saharan Africa. On average, students collected $35 each in pledges, allowing $15,000 for scholarships and another $4,000 to be donated to their sisters in Sudan. Those funds will be designated for high school scholarships for two Sudanese refugee girls in the Girls’ Opportunities Scholars program at $1,000 each, another $1,000 to provide health kits and medicine to Sudanese girls’ schools and finally another $1,000 sent to the St. Bakhita School to support 10 primary school students for an entire school year. All students and faculty participated in the 6.5-mile walk.

Elder’s Sexton excels in all areas By Tony Meale tmeale@communitypress.com

If you’d like to get an idea of Nathan Sexton’s work ethic, look no further than the following facts. As a freshman, the recent Elder High School graduate didn’t know how to ice skate. As a senior, he led the Panthers’ hockey team in goals (10) and was second in assists (10). “He’s a smart kid, a tough kid,” Elder hockey coach Joe Del Prince said. “Very athletic.” Needless to say, Sexton certainly took to ice hockey quickly.

Scouting report • Captain of Elder’s soccer and hockey teams • Named MVP in hockey as a senior and Mr. Panther as a junior • Led hockey team in goals (10) as a senior and was second in assists (10). • First-team all-league in soccer as a senior and second-team allleague as a junior • Has a 4.0 GPA • Member of the National Honor Society • Earned a certificate of merit in economics, AP Calculus AB and community service. • Has performed service work for Our Lady of Lourdes Festival, Shantytown, Christmas Food and Toy Drive, Santa Maria, Our Daily Bread and ReSTOC – among others

“I had an early interest in it and a lot of motivation to get good and make something of it,” he said. Even more impressive? Before Sexton’s senior year, Elder’s hockey squad went from a club team to being recognized by the OHSAA. Thus, the Panthers practiced longer and harder and faced stiffer competition. Sexton was named honorable mention for the Southwest district. “He brought to the team what some of the other kids couldn’t – and he brought it every week,” Del Prince said. “And the kids saw that.” Sexton’s work ethic and tenacity are likely two reasons why he was named Delhi Press Sportsman of the Year, as voted by fans; 265,320 votes were cast in all 26 papers. As a reward, Sexton will receive a pair of field box seats thanks to the Cincinnati Reds later this season. “We’re proud of his work and his achievements,” said Sexton’s father, Mike. “We’re proud of his leadership.” While Sexton was a quick study in hockey, his first love is soccer, which he began playing when he was 4. Primarily a defender, Sexton earned all-league honors as a junior and senior. He scored one goal and had one assist this past season. “It just became my passion,” Sexton explained. “I love playing, and I do everything I can to be

A member of the National Honor Society, he graduated with a 4.0 GPA and earned

He was also a peer tutor and said each of his service activities meant something special to him. “It’s all about time manage-

Sexton hopes to play soccer at Northern Kentucky University. He remains undecided on a major but knows he has several people to thank for assisting him in his accomplishments. “I want to thank my friends and family,” he said. “They’ve helped me and guided me this whole time.”

Seton’s Phillips a success in, outside lines By Nick Dudukovich ndudukovich@communitypress.com

To say Seton High School’s Katie Phillips had a lot on her plate during her prep years is an understatement. The future Tennessee Tech University freshman took AP courses, participated in community service and was active in her church, all the while being a standout on the soccer field and basketball court for the Saints. Phillips’ father, Keith, believes that an instinctive drive equipped his daughter with the ability to handle multiple responsibilities. He remembers a day when Phillips woke up at 6 a.m. to serve soup to the homeless. After attending classes for the day, Phillips then went to club soccer practice, followed by a Saints’ basketball practice. She didn’t get home until 10:30 p.m. Keith remembers telling

his daughter to get some rest, but Phillips responded by saying that she still had to study. “She’s just driven. I don’t have any other way to tell it,” Keith said. “She works for everything.” Phillips’ impact on the community hasn’t gone unnoticed, as the Seton graduate was voted Delhi Press/Price Hill Press Sportswoman of the Year in an online poll. Nominees were submitted by readers at Cincinnati.com, and more than 265,000 votes were cast for local athletes. The nominees were based on excellence in athletics, academics and character. All are qualities that describe Phillips, who led by example for the Saints in between the lines. She was a three-year varsity soccer player, and spent four years on the varsity basketball squad. As a senior, Phillips helped lead the basketball team to seven wins. It’s

She also played a crucial role as a defender for the Saints’ soccer team, which went 9-7-1. It was one of the team’s best records in recent memory.

she’s a little hurt,” he said. “She’s one of these role models that demonstrated through example … She quietly did what she was expected to do and the players looked up to her.” While Phillips and the Saints never achieved the success they would have liked, Phillips believes she left the soccer and basketball programs on a positive note. “Now, I feel the program is on the way up and I feel like I’ve left a legacy,” Phillips said. “Now it’s time (for the girls that are left) to shine and to get the program to where it used to be.” Phillips received numerous accolades while playing at Seton, including firstteam, all-Girls Greater Cincinnati League honors during the 2010-2011 basketball season, when she averaged 17.6 points per game.

She received secondteam, all-conference honors during her junior year, and honorable mention during her sophomore season. But there’s more to Phillips than stats and awards. Those long nights studying helped her gain entrance into the National Honor Society, as she finished school with a 3.7 grade point average. She’s been to Appalachia with her Seton classmates to help rebuild a roofs. She’s tutored girls and served breakfast the City Gospel Mission. Keith said his daughter realizes that there’s more to life than sports and that he and his wife, Angie, have strived to make their daughter an active member of a community. “She realizes that sports are just an avenue to obtain other things in life,” Keith said. Phillips, who has been a Eucharistic minister since grade school at St. Dominic Church, believes that her faith, school and sports have helped mold her into an independent young woman. “If it wasn’t for faith, I wouldn’t be so dedicated to academics and sports give me a break from academics,” she said. “It all fits together and makes me (the) well rounded person that I am today.” For more coverage, visit Cincinnatia.com/blogs/ presspreps

Longtime Seton softball coach steps down After serving Seton’s softball program for more than two decades, Mary Agricola has stepped down as varsity softball coach. Even though she will be leaving the softball program, Agricola is not leaving Seton High School. “I am moving to the role of Director for Student Life,”

said Agricola. “I realize the new position will require more time and I will need to branch out beyond athletics to interact with the faith community and student affairs.” Agricola started coaching softball at Seton in 1991 and was named head varsity coach three years later.

Sakura Japanese Steakhouse

During her time as coach, she had a record of 181 – 219. Agricola said she is most proud Agricola of what her students accomplish off the softball field. “One year all seven of my seniors were in the top ten of the class,” Agricola said. “I’ve had a lot of valedictorians and students who are involved in community service above and beyond Seton’s requirements.” She has also been touched by the number of students who came back after graduation. “They are

Mercy High School senior Sarah Tebelman signs a letter of intent to continue her bowling career at Marian University in Indianapolis, while her parents, Terri and Dan Tebelman, support her. This is the third year in a row that a Mercy bowler has received a college scholarship to continue their bowling career. Tebelman recently received honorable mention in the Cincinnati Enquirer’s Winter Sports All Stars listing. A highlight of her senior year of bowling included an eighth place finish at the Bearcat Classic where Mercy’s team finished second out of 40 teams - the highest finish of any local team. She was also a part of the 2009-2010 bowling team that set a school and city record for highest match total, a record they then again broke this past season against Fairfield.

What happens when we keep on keeping on? This is a reprint of a Father Lou column from 2010. Father Lou is currently dealing with medical issues that prevent him from carrying out a full schedule, including penning new columns.

Somewhere in our lives we chose a road. There will always be Frost’s two paths that diverge in an unknown woods. Maybe even more than two. Once we reach a reasoned conviction of which of the two to follow – which is not always easy to accomplish – we set out on one on them. Then what? Then it’s time for perseverance, to continue steadfastly. Colloquially, it’s time to keep on keeping on. Untrustworthy negative thoughts can pester us again and again: “Should I have chosen a different path; if this is the right one shouldn’t it always be easy and enjoyable?” “Why these problems? Are they signs of a wrong

choice and a directive to go backward?” “Did I blow it?” If you wonder about your life in similar ways then you were symbolically Father Lou present years ago Guntzelman when a man for an Perspectives acame ppointment. Though he smiled politely, feelings of disappointment and sadness accompanied him. As his life story unfolded, he lamented, “ You know, Father Lou, I’ve always thought that if you worked hard at handling your life when you were younger, things would eventually get better. “To me, life is like climbing a mountain. I’ve always had the expectation that by this time in my life I would come to a kind of

plateau where the troubles of life level off. “Now I’m beginning to wonder if there will ever be a plateau. The mountain just keeps going up – and I’m getting so tired of climbing.” I had known this man for years and had a great respect for him. This was one of those times that many of us clergy wish we had a special word or prayer to salve someone’s troubled mind. I realize now that all I have is the same humanness, a listening ear, and a heart that cares. “As a mountain-climber, what are your options?” I inquired. “Well,” he mused, “I guess I could just sit and weep or wait for someone to come by and help me; or I could slide down to the bottom and stop climbing. “Then again, I could give up completely and jump off the mountain and end all the climbing and worrying.” After a long,

thoughtful pause, he sighed and suggested, “Or – I can keep on climbing.” You can tell in people’s voices and eyes when they have arrived at an answer that is really the answer, not just an expected or temporary reply. He realized that the true solution called on him for much courage – to change his negative attitude and just keep on keeping on. I asked him whether, in his solution of just keeping on, there was any benefit for him, or for any of us as we climb our mountains, to keep going even when we wonder about stopping. He paused, looked out the window thoughtfully as though he couldn’t think of any benefit. But then he did. He smiled, turned, looked me in the eye and resolutely said, “When you keep on climbing the view gets better.” Before me sat a very wise man.

A man becoming even wiser. A man gaining insight into himself and many of the perplexing paradoxes of life. Life is not a disease, not a picnic, nor a punishment. It is a path on which we travel somewhere. We look for meaning, not comfortableness. Our climb may be hard for us at times and call for every ounce of courage we have, but it rewards us by becoming more revealing as we go. Life whispers to us many of its secrets. We learn in our hearts to choose life, not quitting. It’s said: “When you climb a mountain, you feel like you’re meeting God halfway.” Father Lou Guntzelman is a Catholic priest of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati.

Know the policy before using layaway for purchases During these tough economic times we’ve seen layaway become an increasing popular method of shopping at several area stores. You can put down a little money over time until you’ve paid enough to buy the item. But, just what are your rights when you buy something on layaway? Meg Corcoran of Price Hill said she was surprised when she couldn’t immediately get her money back after she changed her mind about buying a patio set. She found the furniture in a

store last April. “ T h e guy says, ‘Well you can put it on layaway.’ I s a i d , Howard Ain ‘ T h a t ’ s Hey Howard! g r e a t because I do like to do that.’ So, I put down $200, and then I sent him another $200 later on,” Corcoran said. All those payments were noted on the receipt she received from the store.

Corcoran had every intention of buying the items until she saw another patio set at another store a few weeks later. “I saw a nicer set for the price,” Corcoran said. “It was bigger so it fit my deck better because this was a smaller set. So I decided to go with the other set.” After buying the second set, she contacted the first store and asked to get back the $400 she had put down on layaway for the first set. Corcoran said the salesman told her, “I couldn’t have my money back until

Under Ohio’s Layaway Law, consumers wishing to cancel a layaway must do so in writing. he sold the set I ordered, sold it to somebody else. We went round and round about it and he said he put out his own money for the set.” Like many people, Corcoran said she had no idea there is an Ohio law governing layaways, and didn’t know what it was. “No, I didn’t. It wasn’t on

my receipt or anything. He says it’s posted on his cash register, but I didn’t see it.” Under Ohio’s Layaway Law, consumers wishing to cancel a layaway must do so in writing. For purchases greater than $500, as this was, if they cancel within five days they are entitled to a complete refund. After that, the store can keep up to half your money. Corcoran said she’ll now deliver a cancellation letter and get back $200. Then, when the patio set is sold, she’s told she can get back

the other $200. Kentucky has no specific layaway law, so stores have varying policies on whether or not they will allow customers to cancel and get back their money. Therefore, it’s important that you inquire about a store’s policy before deciding whether or not to sign up for layaway, no matter where you live.

Wooden bowl holds memories, salad dressing When we pick the first tomatoes and cucumbers from the garden, I like to make my mom, Mary Nader’s, lemony salad dressing. I would have liked to teach it in class, too, but she, and I, never measured.

Well, I finally bit the bullet and did just that: measured ingredients as they went Rita in. I’m Heikenfeld s h a r i n g Rita’s kitchen that recipe today and hope you like it as much as we do. And when I make the dressing, I’m reminded of the time that we didn’t have salad for supper. Let me explain. My mom never had a lot of mixing bowls – she used hand-hewn wooden bowls from Lebanon for the most part. But for our salad (and we did have salad almost every day to accompany the meal) she used a stainless steel bowl. It was a bit battered and it was the only bowl she had for this purpose. Mom also used a wooden pestle called an “in-duhuh” to crush her garlic with salt and pepper for the dressing. Well, one day she

Salt and pepper to taste 2 teaspoons lemon juice 1 tablespoon olive oil Mix garlic, salt and pepper together. I use my wooden pestle (in-duh-uh) for this but a fork works well. Stir in juice and olive oil. You won’t have a lot of dressing but don’t be fooled. This is enough for 3 to 4 cups chopped lettuce, a tomato and some cucumber. COURTESY RITA HEIKENFELD

Rita Heikenfeld’s mom’s salad with lemony dressing. The bowl was also handed down from her along with the pestle. couldn’t find the bowl so we didn’t have salad! My sisters blamed me – they said I took it out into the yard to make some mud-pie creation. What I find amusing is that our yard was the size of a postage stamp so why it took over a day to locate the bowl is beyond me. Anyway, whenever I see a serving bowl that I “just have to have,” I stop and remember how few serving pieces Mom had, so I smile and leave it on the shelf.

My mom’s lemon salad dressing

This is typical for Middle Eastern dressings. It is quite lemony and is not a “fancy” salad. This is a base recipe, so go to taste on it. If you add tomatoes, cukes, onions, etc., add them to the dressing first and some of their juices will go into it, flavoring it nicely. If you add parsley, mix it in with the greens. Cheese should be sprinkled on after mixing if you want some. But don’t overdo on the cheese. A little goes a long way and you don’t want to mask the flavor of the dressing. This amount serves two but is easily increased to your needs.

Dressing: 1

⁄2 teaspoon minced garlic or equivalent clove of garlic

Patt Sayer’s slaw from Fish Hopper Restaurant

Pat Sayer, a Western Hills reader, sent me this favorite cloned recipe. “One of my hobbies is recreating recipes from foods that we have enjoyed at restaurants. The coleslaw we ate at the Fish Hopper Restaurant in Kailua Kona, Hawaii, during our 49th anniversary is different than any coleslaw we have eaten,” she said. Sounds good to me!

Mix and chill prior to serving:

8 cups shredded mix of green cabbage, red cabbage, carrots (your choice of proportions) 1 cup golden seedless raisins 1 cup chopped papaya (Libby’s canned, welldrained, or fresh) Enough Marzetti’s cold slaw dressing to moisten well. 1 cup chopped Macadamia nuts Variation: Add orangeflavored cranberries and minced onions to taste.

Mango jicama slaw

Someone gave me this recipe during a class I was teaching. I didn’t get his name – he just pressed the recipe in my hand and said “try it.” I haven’t tried it yet but intend to. If you do, let me know how you like it. Jicama may be unfamiliar to you, but it’s a tuberous root veggie that’s juicy and crunchy. It tastes a little bit like an apple and can be eaten raw or cooked. 1 mango, julienned 1 ⁄2 cup carrots, julienned 1 pound jicama, peeled and julienned 1 red bell pepper, seeded and julienned 1 ⁄4 cup chopped fresh cilantro 1 ⁄2 cup fresh lime juice Salt and pepper to taste Combine all ingredients and refrigerate until serving. This makes four servings.

Reader correction

According to reader Pam Anderson, the recipe for the strawberry pie needs to be altered slightly. “I think there may be 1 tablespoon too much water in the pie. It’s not setting perfectly for some. Just reduce water in cornstarch slurry from 1⁄4 cup to 3 tablespoons,” she wrote. Thanks Pam. Rita Nader Heikenfeld is an herbalist, educator and author.
