Westwood pastors making a move to Egypt Will work for church for 3 years

Planting Pride

By Kurt Backscheider

The Rev. Dr. Steve Gorman and his wife, the Rev. Dr. Cinda Gorman, said they are going to miss Westwood and the people they’ve come to know during the past two decades. “We’re really going to grieve Cincinnati and this great, great congregation,” Mrs. Gorman said. “We’ve spent one-third of our lives here.” After more than 21 years serving as co-pastors of Westwood First Presbyterian Church, the Gormans are bidding farewell to their congregation. They gave their final sermons Sunday, June 24, and began a journey that will take them to Cairo, Egypt. The couple, who have been married for 38 years, will work for the Presbyterian Church in Egypt for two to three years. Mrs. Gorman will serve as a volunteer staff member for the Evangelical Theological Seminary of Cairo, and Mr. Gorman will work as the public information officer for the Synod of the Nile, which is the general assembly of the Presbyterian Church in Egypt. “Our role is to tell the world the story of the seminary and the work the Presbyterian Church is doing,” Mr. Gorman said, noting the church has established well-respected schools, churches and hospitals throughout Egypt. Calling the sojourn their “pre-tirement,” they started discussing a move abroad about two years ago. Mr. Gorman said they attended a retirement seminar and the speaker gave an inspirational presentation about the

values of one’s life and how those values can serve the world. “That prompted a very serious and important conversation between us,” he said. After Mrs. Gorman made contact with some outreach programs within the Presbyterian Church, the church asked them to consider going to Egypt. So this past February the Gormans visited the country on the Nile for two weeks. They were there for the one-year anniversary of Egypt’s Arab Spring – when revolutionaries toppled the government regime. Despite the political turmoil taking place there, the Gormans said they were shown wonderful hospitality by the Egyptian people and witnessed firsthand how much the people appreciate the work Christians are doing there. “We were so inspired,” Mr. Gorman said. “This is where God wants us to be. This is a case where faith is greater See EGYPT, Page A2

Price Hill Day tradition continues By Kurt Backscheider

John Kely still vividly remembers the time he escaped his mother’s watchful eye on the carousel at Coney Island. He was just a young kid at the time, and he wandered away from his family while they were at the amusement park for the annual Price Hill Day. “My mother was panicked, but they found me a short time later strolling around the park,” said Kely, a Price Hill resident and retired Elder High School science teacher. Families are once again encouraged to spend a day partaking in a neighborhood tradition that began 96 years ago. The annual Price Hill Day at Coney Island is set for Wednesday, July 18. The Price Hill Civic and Businessman’s Club, now

known as the Civic Club, started Price Hill Day in 1916. The Price Hill Historical Society took over sponsoring the event in the late 1990s. Price Hill Day was held at Stricker’s Grove for several years, but the society moved it back to Coney Island in 2000. Each summer hundreds of neighborhood residents make the trek out to Coney to spend the day swimming in Sunlite Pool, riding rides, pedaling paddle boats and picnicking with their families under the Shooting Star pavilion. Florence Sparks, board member of the historical society, said more than 500 people attended last year’s event. She helps organize Price Hill Day each year with her husband, Dave, and society treasurer Betty Wagner. “Price Hill Day at Coney was always a big event for

the neighborhood,” Mrs. Sparks said. “Everyone would ride the Island Queen out there for the day. Now it’s a day for neighbors to meet neighbors and for families to enjoy time together,” she said. Kely, an historical society member, said he was

among those who used to make the trip aboard the Island Queen. “You could have a complete day at Coney,” he said. One of Kely’s favorite features of the park was the Shooting Star roller coaster. “You could see the Ca-

our radar,” she said. “It made us think maybe this is exactly where God is calling us.” Following their goodbyes to the people of Westwood First Presbyterian Church, the Gormans will move to Cleveland, where they’ve purchased a home across the street from one of their three children. Mrs. Gorman said the house, which allows them to be closer to three of their grandchildren, will serve as their home base both before and after their move to Egypt. They will spend two months later this summer and fall traveling around the United States, visiting Presbyterian churches to raise support for their trip and foster relationships. Their plan is to move to Cairo in February 2013.

We must have ridden it nine times in a row.” Valda Moore, the society’s recording secretary, said Coney offers a great deal to Price Hill. “I think it gives many kids an opportunity to experience something they may not get to do,” she said. Advance tickets, which include parking, admission to Sunlite Pool and all the rides, are $13 per person for those ages 4 and older, and $4 for children ages 2 and 3. Regular admission at

The Spirit of Sister Dorothy Stang Award is given annually to faculty members, parish ministers, parishioners active in social justice ministry, and graduating seniors in the Catholic high schools and parish youth ministry programs in the Archdiocese of Cincinnati. Purposes of the award are: » to keep alive the ministry and memory of Sister Dorothy Stang that included her solidarity with the poor, her care for the earth,

Namur, was murdered for her faith in Anapu, in the state of Pará, in the Amazon Basin of Brazil in February 2005. She was outspoken in her efforts on behalf of the poor and the environment. “I don’t want to flee,” she said, “nor do I want to abandon the battle of these farmers who live without any protection in the forest. They have the sacrosanct right to aspire to a better life on land where they can live and work with dignity while respecting the environment.” For more, visit

After early struggles, Steam rolling along

Inconsistency leads to early slow start By Tom Skeen

PRICE HILL — After getting off to a 2-3 start, the Cincinnati Steam have won five of six and sit at 7-4 through June 22. “We are off to a good start and the guys are playing hard,” coach Billy O’Connor said. “It takes some adjusting because the guys usually have two to three weeks off from the end of their season to the start of the summer season where they aren’t doing a whole lot of (baseball) stuff. The first four or five games are usually an adjustment getting back into the flow of things, but since then we’ve been playing pretty well.” Another reason for the early struggles was the inconsistency in the lineup and throughout the pitching staff. The Steam has guys who can’t hit the ball right now and guys hitting nearly .500. As for the pitching staff, ERA’s range from 0.00 to 36.00. “Ideally you would like to have some consistency one through nine in the lineup and all your pitchers throwing pretty well,” the second-year coach said. “That’s not the case right now, but luckily our guys that are doing well are doing really well and making up for the guys struggling.” Leading the team are Moeller grad Jake Madsen and former Roger Bacon star Josh Ungerbuehler. Madsen leads the team with a .475 average, while Ungerbuehler is hitting .448 with a teamleading four doubles. “(Jake) just hits like crazy,” O’Connor said. “He’s a great hitter. Josh was injured a bit early in his college season and we didn’t really know what to expect and he’s come in swinging the bat really, really well. He does a great job in the outfield; he’s just a great ball player. He’s a hardnosed type guy and a guy you love to have on your team.” One guy with a big summer in front of him is Elder grad Selby Chidemo. After an injury plagued career to this point, Chidemo is sixth on the team with a .292 batting average and tied for second with five walks.

The ‘Dean’ ends career Oak Hills track coach retires after 35 years By Tom Skeen

“Selby’s got all the talent in the world,” his coach said. “It’s a matter of him applying himself and figuring out how to utilize that talent. This is his first healthy summer and it’s a chance to play consistently and get out there and get a lot of at-bats. I think it’s going to be good for him. I think he’s going to be the guy that makes the most strides from the start of the season to the end of the season.” Leading the pitching staff is another former Panther. Through two starts and 11 innings, Brian Korte has a 0.82 ERA with eight strikeouts and just one earned run allowed. “He’s been great,” O’Connor said. “He had a rough spring season and it’s tough sometimes in the college season where you can get behind the eight ball after one bad start. I think when guys get that pressure taken off of them, they become better baseball players and grow as players and I think that is what we are seeing from him right now.”

GREEN TWP. — It all began in 1977 as an assistant coach for Oak Hills track. Now it comes to a close 35 years later as Jerry Dean retires from coaching. “I basically told myself that is enough,” Dean said. “Last year I said I was going to do it for one more year and now I am going to pass it off to some younger guys.” Dean took over as head coach in 1984 and took 12 athletes to the state meet and won one league title, which he says is his fondest memory. In 1989, as a member of the Queen City Conference, the league title came down to a battle between Western Hills and Oak Hills. The Highlanders came out on top and did it without a single individual league champion. That same year, the battle for coach of the year was decided by one vote. “It came down to a tie for coach of the year and I had the last vote,” Dean said. “I didn’t vote for myself, so I never won a coach of the year but I did win a league title and got to move to the (Greater Miami Conference).” While in the GMC, Dean’s most successful runners

“It came down to a tie for coach of the year and I had the last vote. I didn’t vote for myself, so I never won a coach of the year.” JERRY DEAN

Oak Hills track coach

were 2002 graduate Jeff Schroeder and current Oak Hills senior Kevin Konkoly. Schroeder qualified for state in the 110-meter hurdles twice, finishing fifth as a senior. With one year left, Konkoly has already made two state appearances in the 400-meter, coming in seventh this season. “They both hate to lose,” Dean said about Schroeder and Konkoly. “Jeff was the kind of guy you just didn’t approach. He was just an animal. He just got in the zone and would go after it. Kevin is much more of a thinker. He is very psychological.” In the field events, Justin Steigerwald was Dean’s most successful athlete. He holds the school record in the high

jump and notched a fifthplace finish at state. Over his 35 years, Dean has seen a number of changes in the sport, mainly the emergence of other sports along with pay-to-play. “A big change came for me when we instilled pay-toplay,” he said. “We were one of the first to do that. My numbers went from 100 to about half, which caused me to almost rebuild every year. As a public school, our numbers are still good, but we are starting to get hit with volleyball and lacrosse, which took a lot of my younger sprinters.” As for the retired coach’s future plans, after teaching woodshop for 20 years, he is going back to using his hands as well as doing a bit of traveling with his wife Donna. “I love working with my hands,” Dean said. “I have an older farm that needs all kinds of work, plus some rental properties that I own. My kids live in California and Denver so there will be some traveling involved as well.” One thing is for sure about his coaching career: Dean loves track and field and always will. “It’s been fun,” he said. “I love the sport and I love to see the kids be successful in it.”

Change leads to success for ex-Bomber By Tom Skeen

FINNEYTOWN — After leading the St. Xavier Bombers lacrosse team to a city championship as a senior, John Glaser carried his success onto college where he just finished a stellar career. At Christopher Newport University, Glaser finished his career with 85 goals and 33 assists, leading the team in scoring both his junior and senior seasons. Even though he started every game as a freshman, it wasn’t until his junior year when the production started to shine through. The reason for the improve-

ments: A new coaching staff. “It was the coaching staff with our new coach Todd Boward and the assistant coaches,” Glaser said about his improvement. “They were more willing to help and were easier to communicate with and talk to. If we had something wrong or needed something, they were easier to talk to.” Although he never went through anything like a head coaching change, Glaser says the change was needed. “Our old coach (Chris Swanenburg) wasn’t really liked at our school,” he said. “We were considered more of a track team because we ran six miles a day. Our

Former St. Xavier Bomber and recent graduate of Christopher Newport University, John Glaser, finished his college career with 85 goals and 33 assists, leading his team in scoring his final two years as a Captain. THANKS TO CHRISTOPHER NEWPORT ATHLETICS

new coach put out how he wanted us to be and practice was more fun my junior and senior years. With the old coach we didn’t know what was going to happen at practice.” Glaser proved that the transi-

tion between high school and college is doable, but not easy. He finished with 23 points as a freshman, fourth on the team, but it doesn’t compare with the 34 he posted his senior year to lead the Captains. “It was a big adjustment for me,” Glaser said. “I was just growing and I never reached my

full potential (in high school). When I went to college, I developed more skills and was more physical. The college game is so much faster and it took me time, but I have been playing since the fourth grade and I was able to pick up on it.” One of Glaser’s finest moments came in one of the biggest wins in CNU lacrosse history. After giving up the game-tying goal with 1:29 to go in regulation against Hampden-Sydney Collge, Glaser scored the game-winner three minutes into overtime. He went coast-to-coast, took it beSee CHANGE, Page A7

New law provides needed oversight On June 6, Ohio Gov. John Kasich signed legislation into law that will provide more oversight of the Cincinnati Metropolitan Housing Authority (CMHA) by adding two additional board members who will better represent the interests of Hamilton County communities outside the city of Cincinnati. The legislation will take effect on Sept. 6 of this year. The new legislation provides for an increase from the current five to a total of seven members on the Cincinnati Metropolitan Housing Authority board of directors. Under the new legislation, one board member will be added from the Hamilton County Township Association and one from the Hamilton County Municipal League. Cincinnati Metropolitan

Housing Authority is the agent in Hamilton County for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. The Chris Monzel COMMUNITY PRESS department oversees propGUEST COLUMNIST erty acquisition, strategic planning and management of all low-income public housing. This new legislation expanding the number of board members will provide a greater voice for communities throughout Hamilton County. Realizing the importance of this legislation, I traveled to Columbus on two occasions during the bill’s hearing process to testify in support of expanding the board to seven members.

In that testimony, I emphasized that Cincinnati Metropolitan Housing Authority needed to be more accountable for the upkeep of its properties. It has been documented that Cincinnati Metropolitan Housing Authority has more than $20 million in deferred maintenance and repair work that should be completed on existing properties. The expanded board will call attention to these issues and others that affect the quality of life for Cincinnati Metropolitan Housing Authority tenants and the surrounding communities. I pledge that my commission staff and I will monitor the actions of Cincinnati Metropolitan Housing Authority’s newly constituted board of directors, as well as its newly named executive director Gregory Johnson to ensure that any new

Gottschalk family lived out American Dream John Gottschalk was an immigrant who lived the American dream. He was the son of Ernest and Henrietta Herman Gottschalk, born in Prussia in 1837. He immigrated to the United States in 1857, and settled in Over-the-Rhine. A few years later he went back to Prussia to bring his sweetheart Elizabeth, to America. They were married with his last $2 in 1860. That marriage lasted 61 years. A short time after the marriage he opened a meat store at the old Sixth Street Market. The Gottschalks had a son, Robert, and wanted out of the crowded, dirty city. So in 1880, John purchased six acres in Home City from George McIntyre for $1,200. Betty There he built Kamuf COMMUNITY PRESS a house, barn and farm GUEST COLUMNIST buildings. The house still stands at 207 Monitor. His original purchase started at the corner of Home City and Monitor and went all the way to Hillside Avenue. It did not include the farm land where Sayler Park School is. John kept buying pieces of land until he had an 80-acre farm across from Sayler Park School down to River Road. Basil Burger, who was the village lamplighter for Home City, worked on that farm when he first came to America. Albert married Caroline Mary Weimeier in 1881. Her family owned the Weimeier Inn near the Anderson Ferry in Riverside. He built his house at 6610 Parkland in 1886. And across from that at Parkland and Monitor, father and son built A. R. Gottschalk’s Grocery and Daily Market. They did their own butchering and delivered groceries by horse and wagon. A

Robert and Caroline had four children. Three survived to adulthood. They were Robert Louis, Ida Mary and Herman.

They lived across from the firehouse on the corner of Parkland and Twain. They had two sons die in infancy and a daughter Mildred Jean. Robert worked in the store with his father and grandfather. Ida Mary married a man named Beach. I don’t any more about her. Herman married Maude Taylor. They lived with his two step children Grace and Owen Taylor.

Robert was living at 138 Monitor and sold his house to Glenn Siefert for a funeral home. He moved above the store until about 1939 when bad health forced him to sell the store. John Waldeck and Hershel Stone took over, but, it never thrived until Bert and Stan Story bought it. The Gottschalk’s moved to Kennedy Heights and subdivided John’s farm into the Gottschalk subdivision. Robert died in 1956. Florence died in Hollywood, Fla., in 1973.

We will also continue to encourage the Cincinnati Metropolitan Housing Authority board to institute new management and spending practices that will result in better-maintained units. In closing, I would like offer my sincere thanks to State Rep. Lew Terhar and State Sen. Bill Seitz for their efforts in introducing and guiding this timely legislation to passage in both the Ohio House and Senate. Without their hard work, these necessary changes to the Cincinnati Metropolitan Housing Authority board would not have occurred. Chris Monzel is a Hamilton County commissioner.

bies recovering from illness were given barley water sweetened with honey and anise. Barley was a popular grain during Bible days and honey was the main sweetener. She came upon this naturally, learning from her mother holistic ways to heal. To this day, my Aunt Margaret still cooks with Bible herbs and spices. She is in her 90s and going strong! One of my most prized possessions is the huge ancient cast iron “spider” kettle that I inherited from my mother. She grew enough herbs for our family of 11 in that kettle. It now sits in a place of honor in my garden, and my “hobbit”/ basil grows happily there. (The legend is that basil sprang up in the ground near Christ’s tomb after the resurrection). I ask the Lord to bless her as I scatter seeds on the surface, patting them into the soil with bare hands. There is a burgeoning interest in holistic health and aromatherapy, and many herbs and spices mentioned in the Bible are included in natural

remedies. There is dill, another tithing herb, for “gripe water” to soothe colicky babies; mint tea for digestion and in spritzers to refresh and cleanse the air; cilantro/ coriander (analogous to Biblical manna) for removing heavy metals from the body. Flax, out of which linen was made, helps lower cholesterol and cinnamon helps stabilize blood sugar. Bay (athletes were crowned with bay) shows promise in research for diabetes and heart health and is used in steam facials. You could say they’re good for body and soul!

Did you know that many of the common herbs and spices we use today have Biblical roots? I have always been fascinated with the historical significance of Biblical herbs and spices so often mentioned throughout the Old and New Testaments. Rita They’re Heikenfeld living RITA’S KITCHEN links to our past, and many of the trendy herbs and spices common to cuisines all around the world trace their roots to Biblical and pre-Biblical times. Even before people could write, they used herbs and spices to season and preserve their foods. The people of Bible days were herbalists out of necessity. Herbs and spices were also used in cosmetics, dyes and medicines. All households, whether rich or poor, cultivated an herb garden and the plants were highly valued. My own Lebanese cooking and healing heritage is rich with facts and folklore regarding herbs of Bible days. I remember my parents telling stories of their families who immigrated from “the old country,” Lebanon. Mint, one of the tithing herbs, was carefully nurtured during the long voyage to America. We used Bible herbs and spices in everyday cooking in our traditional Lebanese household. All nine of us children learned at an early age how to distinguish oregano (the hyssop of the Bible) from marjoram, which mint was to be picked for kibbee, and how many sprigs of thyme it took for a kettle full of dolmathas. (Thyme grew wild in the Jerusalem hills). Some of the herbs doubled as medicines, as well. Mom gave us anise tea for cramps, and ba-

the walk. The Cincinnati West and East Side chapters joined dozens of other chapters of The Compassionate Friends around the country also sponsoring walks. “Our hearts will join with hundreds of families across the country walking to remember all children who left us too soon,” says Alan Wernersbach, chapter leader. “We will always cherish the memories of our children, no matter how long or how short they were with us. The walk gives us a way to honor their lives in a truly memorable way.” This was the second year for the local walk in Cincinnati, which also served as a fundraiser for the chapter as pledges were received to help with outreach to bereaved parents and families in the community. Anyone who would still like to make a pledge or would like information about Cincinnati chapters may call Michael Urbisci of the West Side at 513-205-8291 or Carol Terbrueggen at 513-2716809 of the East Side.

Green Township residents are invited to commemorate Independence Day with a concert and fireworks at Kuliga Park. The township’s annual Fourth of July celebration begins at 6 p.m. Tuesday, July 3, at the park, 6717 Bridgetown Road. Earlier this year township officials decided to cancel the event as a cost savings measure, but after township resident Charles Wurster came forward with a $10,000 donation to help keep the tradition alive, Township Trustees Rocky Boiman and Tony Rosiello set out to raise more private money to support the event. “We were reinvigorated to keep this event going,” Boiman said. “It is the signature event in Green Township.” The Saffire Express will provide the musical entertainment at this year’s celebration. Fireworks will be presented after it gets dark. Plenty of food and drinks will be available for those who attend. All profits from food and beverage sales stay with the organizations selling the items. The Western Hills Exchange Club will sell snow cones and wine coolers;

Saffire Express will perform at Green Township's Fourth of July concert and fireworks celebration Tuesday, July 3. The band members include, from left, Bill Bayer, Sam Geroulis, Dana Geroulis, Denny Brooks, Russ Murphy and Pat Emmett. THANKS TO DANA GEROULIS. the American Legion Post No. 485 will sell ice cream; the Green Township VFW Post 10380 will sell beer; the Oak Hills Kiwanis Club will sell hot dogs, hamburgers, tacos, brats, metts and soft drinks; and the Kiwanis Club of White Oak-Monfort Heights will sell funnel cakes. A lifetime township resident, Charles Wurster said his family donated money to continue the Fourth of July event because they know how much the community organizations who run the booths rely on the money they make from selling concessions.

“I know a lot of people in Green Township look forward to the event,” he said. “I just thought this would be a good thing.” He said the community event is also something his late parents, Charles Senior and Erlene, would have supported. Wurster said he and his siblings made the donation in memory of their parents. Rosiello said the township will recognize everyone who contributed donations to this year’s concert and fireworks at the event. “We’ve really been gratified by the number of private citizens and businesses who stepped up to

make this happen,” he said. “Everyone has pitched in to help. We couldn’t be happier about it.” Parking at Kuliga Park is reserved for handicap and permit parking only. Those attending should park across the street at Faith Fellowship Church, or park at J.F. Dulles Elementary School or Our Lady of Visitation School. Shuttle buses will start running from both schools at 5:30 p.m. The rain out date is Wednesday, July 4. For more information, call the concert hotline at 598-3089.

Residents invited to help build skate park Cleves is getting a skate park and community members are invited to help build it. The Hamilton County Public Health Department awarded the village a $24,000 WeTHRIVE! Wellness Grant in February to help improve the physical activity level of residents, specifically the young people in the neighborhood. After months of analyzing needs and careful planning, village officials re-






cently announced the grant will be used to create a skate park at the corner of North Miami Avenue and West Howell Street, next to the village administration building and police department. Cleves Mayor Danny Stacy said the transformation of the corner parking lot to a skate park began two weeks ago when the lot was resurfaced thanks to a generous donation from Blue Chip Pavement. Fencing and barriers will soon be added to ensure safety for everyone, he said. “The village is excited to use this grant to give the kids in the community a place to skate other than in front of the library or senior center,” Stacy said. “I think the community will be pleased with how

the skate park will look when it is done.” A team of community volunteers and a professional skate park installer will install the skate equipment from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, June 30. The public is welcome to join the volunteers in assembling and installing the skate equipment. The skate park, which is funded completely by the grant and other donations, will be free to use. Village officials are planning a ribbon cutting ceremony for sometime in July. Details about the ceremony will be announced when finalized. Anyone interested in helping on June 30 should contact Cleves Councilmember Jan Pastrick via email at or 467-1886.

Hamilton County’s Higher Education Mentoring Initiative for foster youth is one of 11 county programs throughout Ohio to be recognized as an innovative by the National Association of Counties. “We are honored our program has been recognized as creative and as a valuable service to the residents of Hamilton County,” said Moira Weir, director of Hamilton County Job and Family Services, which helped Weir start the program. “This award comes at a great time for us – we are beginning to recruit new mentors and this is validation of how important this program is to this community.” The National Association of Counties has recognized innovative programs since 1970. Awards

are given in 21 different categories including children and youth, criminal justice, county administration, environmental protection, information technology, health, and many more. HEMI fills an important gap in the foster care community, providing mentors who encourage, guide and befriend foster children in an effort to help them graduate high school and move on to success in college, trade school or some other postgraduate endeavor. Since it began in 2009, HEMI has helped dozens of foster youth graduate high school and attend college.

Mentors commit to at least two hours of personal interaction each week with their student. Once a month, they attend a HEMI social activity. HEMI is a collaborative effort between JFS, the Hamilton County Board of County Commissioners, the University of Cincinnati’s Partnership for Achieving School Success (PASS), Cincinnati State Technical and Community College and Great Oaks Institute of Technology and Career Development. Several information sessions are scheduled for July to recruit new mentors. The sessions will be held from 5:30-6:30 p.m. Tuesday, July 10, Wednesday, July 18, and Tuesday, July 24, in the Hamilton County Administration Building, 138 Court St. For more information, visit or contact Annie Schellinger at (513) 5564368 or

Notre Dame Club has night of fun It was a night to remember the past, celebrate the present, and anticipate the future as University of Notre Dame alumni, friends and family recently gathered for the Notre Dame Club of Greater Cincinnati’s annual Universal Notre Dame Night, at the Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center in Norwood. Attendees heard from special guests Sr. John Miriam Jones, S.C., ’61MS, ’70 PhD, former professor and associate provost at Notre Dame, who, as the university’s first female administrator, planned and led the transition to a coed campus, and Elizabeth “Dolly” Duffy ’84, executive director of the Notre Dame Alumni Association (NDAA), who offered an update on the University and the latest news from campus. At the end of her presentation, the club presented Duffy with a check for $16,800 to be deposited into the Notre Dame Club of Greater Cincinnati Endowed Scholarship Fund, which is used to grant financial aid to local Tristate students attending Notre Dame. Originally established by Albert Castellini, a 1924 graduate of Notre Dame, the Cincinnati endowment is one of the oldest and largest Notre Dame club scholarship funds in the country. The fund has a current value of more than $2 million, and is comprised entirely of contributions from the club’s fundraising efforts, individual donations and investment in-

THANKS TO JAMIE EIFERT come. In the early years, funds were raised through train trips to Notre Dame for football games and then for many years the club conducted an annual holiday dinner/dance at a downtown hotel. More recently, a reverse raffle has been the primary fundraiser for the scholarship fund, along with a summer golf outing, and an annual bus trip to a football game. Approximately 30 local students are receiving financial aid to attend ND this year through the club’s scholarship program, with the combined aid totaling over $100,000. In addition to the guest speakers and scholarship contribution, another highlight of the evening was the official kick-off of the club’s Hesburgh Month of Service, part of the NDAA’s national month of service each May in honor of the University’s president emeritus, the Rev. Theodore Hesburgh, CSC.

Notre Dame in the Tristate area. In addition to providing more than $100,000 in scholarship support each year to local students attending Notre Dame, the club also sponsors more than 50 events or programs

Grant buys teaching supplies

Cincinnati-based nonprofit Cooperative for Education (CoEd) recently received international support in the form of a prestigious grant from the H.B. Fuller Company Foundation, a company based in St. Paul, Minnesota. The $20,000 grant will support the organization’s Culture of Reading Program (CORP), now on Montana Avenue, delivering training in effective instruction to primaryschool teachers in Guatemala and provides them

with high-quality children’s books to facilitate reading in the classroom. Residents of the Cincinnati area and beyond have the opportunity to see the program in action and meet the children who will benefit from the grant through service trips conducted by CoEd every February and August. Cooperative for Education Co-Founder and Executive Director Joe Berninger expressed thanks, saying, “We are honored our program has been chosen

for this grant among so many organizations that help underserved communities in Latin America.” Since its founding in 1996 by two Xavier University graduates, Cooperative for Education has provided textbooks, computers, and scholarships to more than 100,000 underprivileged children in Guatemala. For more information about CoEd, visit or call 513-6617000.


Air quality agency expands anti-idling campaign Summer in Cincinnati means Reds baseball, backyard barbecues, outdoor concerts and … smog alerts. Although we can’t change our Cincinnati heat and humidity, we can make an effort to decrease air pollutants so we can all breathe a little easier. The Southwest Ohio Air Quality Agency is taking a proactive approach by inviting communities, schools and businesses throughout Butler, Clermont, Hamilton and Warren counties to participate in anti-idling campaigns. Idling takes place anytime a motorist leaves their vehicle running for more than 30 seconds (except in traffic). Idling is common when dropping off or picking children or friends; at fast food drive-throughs or simply “warming up the car.” Anti-idling conserves energy, saves on fuel costs and reduces wear on vehi-

cle engines. The best part about an anti-idling campaign is that it’s easy and free: the agency provides the materials and guidance to start a campaign. An anti-idling tool kit includes educational brochures, newsletter articles and 18-inch by 24inch signs and posts to be installed at locations where residents may find themselves idling. Common places for anti-idling signs are schools, athletic fields, libraries and other places where children may be dropped off and/or picked up for activities. In addition, the Agency can support anti-idling efforts with presentations to parent or community groups, and interactive demonstrations for children. Idling adversely affects our health, the environment and our wallets. For example, a car that idles for 10 minutes a day emits

approximately 9.5 ounces of carbon dioxide and it wastes gasoline. Thirty seconds of idling can use more fuel than turning off the engine and restarting it. Idling can actually damage a vehicle’s engine. The Southwest Ohio Air Quality Agency is the regional resource for antiidling and other air quality issues in Butler, Clermont, Hamilton and Warren counties. For help establishing an anti-idling campaign in your community, school district or business, please contact Joy Landry at 513-946-7754 or For more information about anti-idling, visit agency’s website at and on Facebook (http:// SouthwestOhioAir) and Twitter (
