Lost wedding ring found four decades later

Price Hill gears up for day at Coney By Kurt Backscheider

Price Hill — Families are invited to take a break from everyday life and enjoy a neighborhood tradition dating back 97 years. The annual Price Hill Day at Coney Island is all set for Wednesday, July 17. “Price Hill Day is a tradition that’s been going on since 1916, and we’re carrying it on,” said Florence Sparks, a Price Hill Historical Society board member who helps organize the event each year with her husband, Dave, and society treasurer Betty Wagner. The Price Hill Civic and Businessman’s Club, now called the Civic Club, organized the first Price Hill Day in 1916. The historical society took over sponsoring it in the late 1990s.

Neighbors finds it two weeks before wedding anniversary By Monica Boylson

Delhi Twp. — Bette Zureick said she remembers losing her wedding band just like it was yesterday. “It was the mid ‘70s and everybody in Delhi had above ground pools, as did we in our backyard,” she said of their home on Carefree Court. “I remember messing around in the pool, going up to hit a beach ball and the ring went flying off my finger and it was gone.” The now 67-year-old said

that she and her husband Ken searched the yard for the the ring in vain. “It was like trying to find a needle in a haystack,” she said. After not finding the ring, they purchased a new band. About 40 years later, just two weeks before their 47th wedding anniversary, their neighbor Jill Myers came to their door with the lost ring. “Something told me to come over here,” Myers said while sitting in the Zureick’s See RING, Page A2

Mount grad overcame obstacles to succeed By Kurt Backscheider

Delhi Twp. — Ashley Mills said she wasn’t going to let the hand she was dealt dictate her future. She realized her life was headed down a precarious path, so the Western Hills native decided it was up to her to change its course. “I think stubbornness has a lot to do with it,” she said. “When I make up my mind and set a goal, I stick to it.” Determined not to become a statistic, she set out to better her life and the lives of her sisters. Mills was 11 years old when she assumed the role of parent to her two younger sisters. Her parents struggled with drug addiction. Her father was

in and out of jail. Surviving on food stamps, Mills took care of her family and the house. With all her responsibilities, she stopped caring about her education and she missed more days of school than she attended. But her attitude toward school changed during her senior year at Western Hills High School. “All of a sudden I just decided I did care about education,” Mills said. “I made up my mind I didn’t want to end up like my parents and be a statistic because of my background. I ended up graduating fourth in my class.” After graduating from Western Hills, she went on to major in psychology and minor in English at the College of Mount St.

Her efforts earned her the college’s prestigious Jane Cuni Armstrong Award. Mills was nominated for the award by her psychology adviser, Tracy McDonough, who said she nominated Mills because of her ability to overcome tremendous hardship in her personal life and flourish despite it. “Given all of these developmentally inappropriate burdens, Ashley would be at high risk for following down the path that her parents had lain. However, she has demonstrated the remarkable ability to rise above,” McDonough said. And rise above she did. Mount spokeswoman Jill Eichhorn said Mills became a leader among her peers at the

the droves, but Mr. Sparks said the event is still well attended. Last year the historical society sold more than 600 tickets for Price Hill Day, he said. “Everybody has a good time, and it’s something a lot of folks in Price Hill can go to,” he said. “Not everyone can afford a day at Kings Island.” Mrs. Sparks said Coney always offers a great deal to Price Hill. Advance tickets, which include parking, admission to Sunlite Pool and all the rides, are $14 per person for those ages 5 and older, and $4 for children ages 2, 3 and 4. Children 2 and younger get in free. Regular admission at the gate is $23.95 per person, plus parking. The Lost River shelter is the picnic area reserved for this year’s Price Hill Day.

Tickets can be purchased in cash on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons at the historical society museum, 3640 Warsaw Ave. Radel Funeral Home, 650 Neeb Road in Delhi Township, and the Cincinnati Federal Savings branches at 4310 Glenway Ave. in Price Hill and 7553 Bridgetown Road in Miami Township are also selling tickets. For more information, call the historical society at 251-2888. Mrs. Sparks said she enjoys getting together with her family and watching her grandchildren have the time of their lives at Price Hill Day, and although it’s a lot of work, she likes helping plan the event for the community. “We’ve had a number of people who have told us they don’t want us to give it up,” she said. “It’s such a fun day.”


Normally an emotional rock, Eichhorn said Mills struggled until her friends shared her problems with McDonough, who worked with Sister Nancy Bramlage, a Sister of Charity and director of campus ministry, and Doug Frizzell, vice president of student affairs. They provided Mills a commuter meal pass and donations so she could live on campus until she graduated. “I think going to the Mount was the best decision I ever made,” Mills said. “I could never be where I am without the friends and professors who helped me. It was definitely not a solo effort by

any means. Everyone went the extra mile to help me with my situation. “That’s a benefit of going to a small college is that professors go the extra mile to help you succeed. When I had hit the bottom, I truly felt like people really cared for me,” she said. Now she’s looking for a job and saving money to attend the police academy, she said. Her ultimate goal is to become a police officer, serve her community and be a role model to others. “I want to give back as much as I can to the community,” Mills said. “I want my life to mean something.”

paddle boats and picnicking with their families. “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. Mr. Sparks is among those who used to make the trip aboard the Island Queen. He recalls riding the steamboat to Coney Island with his parents and siblings. “We would take a picnic lunch, and my dad would give us each $20 worth of tickets so we could ride the rides,” he said. “We stayed out there all day, until the Island Queen came back to pick everyone up.” The steamboat is no longer around to transport Price Hill families by

college. She was a member of Psi Chi, the psychology honor society, and this past spring she learned how to play lacrosse and became a member of the Mount’s women’s lacrosse team. Despite her all her success and involvement at the Mount, Eichhorn said a few months ago Mills wasn’t sure if she’d even graduate. Her family was in danger of losing their home. She didn’t have food because she said their food stamps were being traded for drugs, and her teenage sister became pregnant.

family room. “I believe the Holy Spirit leads you in the right direction and this was meant to be.” The 28-year-old said she was cleaning up after her dogs in the backyard when she spotted something shiny. “I thought it was my daughter’s play ring, so I brought it in the house,” she said. “I cleaned it off and realized it was not a play ring.” After cleaning the ring she noticed an engraving on the inside of it: 6-25-66. “I wanted to know whose ring it was,” she said. Myers said the next day she stopped Ken Zureick, 68, and asked him if he’d lost a ring. He said no. Myers then asked if 625-66 meant anything to him and he said it was their wedding date – he and his wife were married at St. Williams Church in Price Hill on that day. Bette Zureick said her husband called her to see the ring and she was astounded that it was the one she’d lost so many years before. “Sure enough it was my wedding band,” she said. Ken Zureick said he couldn’t believe it was right next door. “I was stunned,” he said. “I couldn’t believe that it had been there all those years. To think about how many times people mowed the lawn. We just assumed it was gone.”

Delhi Historical Society has new leadership By Monica Boylson

Delhi Twp. — The Delhi Historical Society has a new museum consultant. Wyoming resident Becky Johnson, 46, is taking over from former consultant Peg Schmidt who served in the position for five years. Schmidt has been working with Johnson since the beginning of June. “My job is to continue to professionalize the organization,” Johnson said. “Some of my duties will include looking at the whole organization and helping with the management of the farmhouse and increasing visitation to the facility.” She said additional goals will be to maintain one large exhibit each year and to create new fundraising opportunities. Johnson said that when she first started working in Delhi, she was given a tour of the all the historic greenhouses in the township. She said it was that personal tour that has inspired her to create a historic greenhouse tour that others can take. She said she hopes to have it ready next year. “The Delhi Historical Society is here to collect the history of Delhi and respect the history of Delhi,” she said. Schmidt, who was a founding member of the society, said she is excited about the potential for the

historical society and recalled how far it has come since its start in 1976. “For 15 years we were working out of people’s houses,” she said. “It has changed but it hasn’t changed. I think what we do hasn’t changed. We try to collect, preserve and educate people about the history of Delhi. But we’re so much bigger.” Schmidt served as the president of the historical society in the 1970s and again in1990, she said. She became the museum consultant in 2008 with a plan to only stay five years. “I came in to develop a

five-year plan, see it through and hope that they would do another five-year plan and see how it goes,” she said. “The main thing was to organize a volunteer group, organize the archives, and develop the operation of the farmhouse so that it could be run by volunteers.” She said her plan was almost complete and hopes that Johnson will be able to make it so that there are enough volunteers to “run the farmhouse.” Schmidt said she will continue to volunteer at the historical society and is glad that she can serve in that way. “It takes the pressure off,” she said. And Johnson said she looks forward to making a difference in Delhi. “I look forward to learning about Delhi’s history,” she said. “I want to make the historical society more visible in the community.”

Skirt Game paying to use of Delhi Park By Monica Boylson

Delhi Twp. — The Delhi Skirt Game will pay $2,150 to use Delhi Park for the Skirt Game this year. The board of trustees approved the contract during a June 26 meeting for the nonprofit group to use the park and concession stand for the annual game, this year on Friday, Aug. 2. Until this year they had used the field for

free, Skirt Game co-chairman Clyde Kober said. Township Administrator Pete Landrum said the contract amount accounts for $1,700 to rent the concession stand and $450 for the event fee and food permit. Kober said the Skirt Game approached the township in March and offered to pay them for use of the concession stand so they could increase their revenue.



“The concession stand was the problem because people didn’t know the

money wasn’t going to the Skirt Game,” he said. “This eliminates the com-

petition and we should be able to make more money for the Skirt Game.” He said the concession stand rental amount accounts for the township’s profits from last year. The Skirt Game will bring their own items to sell and will have use of the ice cream and Slush Puppie machines. They will reimburse the township for any concession stand food they use beyond what they bring, Kober said.

“We were going to offer to pay to use the concession stand even if the levy didn’t fail,” he said. Kober said the Skirt Game is happy with the contract. “We’re paying a fair price. The township spends money to get the park ready and cleans up after we’re done,” he said. “It’s a win-win for everybody. Everybody wins including the taxpayer, township and skirt game.”

Sayler Park — She wore the color pallet on her khaki shorts. With a paint brush in both hands, one a darker shade of blue, she blended the paint to create an image of the Ohio River. Alison Shepherd was just days away from completing her masterpiece, a mural on the wall of the Wooden Boat Shop on

Gracely Drive in Sayler Park. “I’d always wanted to do a mural on this wall,” the 38-year-old Sayler Park resident said. “It was like divine coordination.” She said after Butch Davis bought the property for the boat shop last summer, he wanted to do something with the large wall on the side of the building. Davis asked around and was referred to Shepherd. Davis said he wanted to have a river scene so it would relate to his business and be a nice scene for people to see as they go by the shop. The mural, which is about 20 feet by 40 feet, depicts a scene of the Ohio River at sunset. The banks of the river slope along either side while the sunset is reflected in the river. In the middle of the scene, a wooden boat trails across the river with an American flag waving in the breeze. “When you see the boat from a distance you can hear the wake and smell

the water,” said Davis, 50, who lives in Batavia. “It’s almost real.” Shepherd presented Davis with a rendering of the mural on a canvas last fall. She started work on the mural at the end of May and was finished in the third week of June. Because the mural paint that she used could only be applied when the weather was between 65 and 85 degrees, Shepherd had to wait until May. She had trouble working in the middle of the day. “It was sunny and hot,” she said. “The sun makes it hard to see.” She said she would paint portions and then walk across the street and further away to see how it looked. “It is a different way of seeing and working,” she said. “The scale is so interesting.” Another difficulty that she faced was not having the funding for more than a week of scaffolding to paint the top half of the wall. The project was

funded in part by the boat shop owner and the Sayler Park Village Council. Davis had budgeted for one week of scaffolding and Shepherd said she needed more time. She sent messages on Facebook asking residents of Sayler Park for their help and said she was overwhelmed with the response. Residents and former residents funded the extra scaffolding cost. “I’m so thankful for the support of the community,” she said. “It makes me realize more and more how special Sayler Park is.” Sayler Park Village Council President Bob Bibbo said the council was happy to support the mural project. “We always want to celebrate our artists and will continue to find spots to jazz up the place,” he said. “Gracely Drive is the most traveled road in our community and we want to do anything we can do to increase the uniqueness of our community.”

Former Highlander is national champ By Tom Skeen

Being a national champion is something Jake Scarlato will cherish for the rest of his life. The UC Clermont baseball player and Oak Hills High School graduate was a key cog in the Cougars winning the U.S. Collegiate Athletic Association Small College World Series May 9. “Every time I go to any of my teammates or anybody I just met I tell them ‘I am a World Series champion’ and it’s a pretty good feeling,” Scarlato said. “… It was definitely an experience unlike any other.” The junior-to-be led the Cougars with a .471 average over the five-game postseason tournament and was named to the all-tournament team. “When they said my name I was kind of shocked, but then right as they said my name I realized I played my (butt) off,” he said. “I played the best baseball

I’ve ever played (in the postseason).” He wasn’t the only Cougar named to the all-tournament team. Three of his teammates joined in on the postseason honors, which speaks to the talent the Cougars boasted in 2013. “We are technically in the USCAA, but we had a lot of Division I caliber guys, we

really did,” Scarlato said. “All you had to do was come watch us play one time and you could see that.” The former Highlander wasn’t in the “Joey Votto” role for the Cougars, where he was hitting with nobody on base. Scarlato hit in clutch situations. He was 2for-4 with two RBI in the Cougars’ game-

one loss to Penn State Allegheny in the championship series and laid down a critical sacrifice bunt in the three-run sixth inning that put the Cougars ahead for good against the Nittany Lions in their 6-3 game-two victory to clinch the title. “I think that my team needed a hit or we needed a base runner and I did everything I could do to get one,” he said. Scarlato is currently playing with the Dayton Docs (9-8) as part of the Great Lakes Summer Collegiate League, where he has four hits and two RBI in 11 games. While he is enjoying summer ball right now, he can’t wait for the 2014 season with the Cougars who will return all but four of their national championship team members. “It’s really cool to know they are all coming back,” Scarlato said of his alltournament team members. “I’m so happy that I have two more years to play. (Last season) was the best time of my life.”

STEAM HOPING TO HIT STRIDE College World Series keeps four players out of team’s lineup

By Tom Skeen

PRICE HILL — Coming off a Great Lakes Summer Collegiate League regular season title last season, the Cincinnati Steam are still looking to find their stride in 2013. Sitting at 10-9 on the season ON PAGE A7: and in fifth A ROSTER OF place, coach THE 2013 Billy O’Conner CINCINNATI knows his STEAM ROSTER team should have a better record to this point in the season. “… I feel like we are kind of spinning our wheels a little bit,” he said. “I feel like we are better than a lot of the teams we are playing, but we are not finishing the job sometimes.” Part of the reason for the early struggles has been the absence of various players due to the College World Series and other factors. Brian Korte (Elder High School), Tim O’Conner (Elder High School), Will Nolden and Luke Harrison all missed the early part of the season after being part of the Indiana Hoosiers’ trip to the CWS. With his roster starting to become whole again, O’Conner believes the tide is about to turn for his squad. “I think at some point over the next week or two we are really going to hit our stride and we are going to turn it on and go on a nice little run here.” One of the guys who’s been around since the start of the GLSCL season is former Madeira High School star Cody Kuzniczci. The Northern Kentucky University red-shirt sophomore was recently named the GLSCL Player of the Week after hitting at a .364 clip with three home runs, two doubles, six RBI and three stolen bas-

es over the seven-day stretch. “It was a pretty cool experience,” Kuzniczci said of the honor. “I was just seeing (the ball) really well last week, the team was playing well and it just really clicked for me.” Moeller grad Rob Sunderman has been seeing the ball really well. Sunderman leads the Steam in hitting and, along with former Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy star Matt Williams, is one of only two players

with more than 20 hits on the season. “Rob’s been great offensively,” O’Conner said. “… To watch his progression after his freshmen year to after his sophomore year to where he is now, he’s become such a better player.” The Steam rank in the top half of the 11-team league in offensive, but it’s been their pitching that’s held them back thus far. They rank 10th in team ERA (3.46) and are allowing a

league high .246 opponents’ batting average. For the Steam to capture another GLSCL title, the pitching must improve. “… We are missing some guys so we have lost some games late because we haven’t had our best guys in the bullpen,” O’Conner said. “… Once we finally get that chemistry of everybody here together and at the same time, I think we are really going to get rolling.”

Walsh at the Met

Recent Elder graduate Brennen Walsh lost to Michael Schmidt 1 up in the semifinals of the 104th Tony Blom Metropolitan Amateur Championship June 28. Walsh took an early lead going 1 up after a par at the second hole at Hyde Park Golf and Country Club, but found the match all square after seven holes. It re-

mained that way until the former Panther notched a three on the par three 15th hole, but proceeded to lose both the16th and17th holes in match play to find himself down one heading to the final hole. Both Walsh and Schmidt carded a par on the final hole giving the former La Salle Lancer the victory.





Five Summit Country Day soccer players from the Division III state championship team in the fall - including from left seniors Joey Kunkel, Ben Emery, Christian Hay, Caelan Hueber and Jake Rawlings - all committed to NCAA Division I programs Summit announced May 9. “I believe that this is unprecedented among all Cincinnati high schools,” said head coach Barnard Baker. “To have this many players reach these levels is unbelievable. Hats off to the club coaches from CUP and Ohio Elite, along with our college counseling staff, for helping us assist these families with navigating through the recruiting process. We all work together to help our student athletes reach their dreams and goals.” Emery will attend the University of Dayton. Hueber will attend Adelphi University in New York. Kunkel will attend the University of Louisville. Rawlings will attend DePaul University in Chicago. Hay will play at the University of Cincinnati. THANKS TO SUMMIT COUNTRY DAY

The latest letter from former Trustee Al Duebber includes the usual attacks on Delhi’s parks. But these issues arose when he was on the board of trustees. Why didn’t he bring them up when he was on the board? Or was he, like his good friend, extownship Administrator Gary Schroeder, only waiting until after he was supposedly “gone” to begin his criticisms? Why didn’t he and Mr. Schroeder question the so-called “reckless spending” at the time? The “inappropriate behavior” resulted in no findings by the state auditor and no action by the county prosecutor. Case closed. And since when is it a “blatant disregard for the concerns of the taxpayer” to discuss ideas for improving the park? Why then did Mr. Duebber agree to pay for plans for the proposed pavilion in 2009? It seems to me that both of these gentlemen have too much time on their hands. They should both get a life and move on.


One question for letter-writer Mark Meinerding: How can the township “live within its means” and continue to provide free meeting places for some township organizations? I am sorry he believes that some groups may feel “alienated” but commend those who have found free meeting places. We made it clear that if the park levy was defeated we would have to make changes. As former Trustee Al Duebber acknowledged other communities already charge these same fees. I’d be interested in knowing exactly what park land he suggests we sell for a short-term budget fix. Regardless of what some “former Financial Advisory Board (FAB) members” might feel, the additional money for the parks is no longer there. As one who opposed the park levy Mr. Meinerding is the last one to now complain about the consequences. Jerry Luebbers Delhi Township trustee

Parks are like your dream girlfriend A timely rebuttal to the previous two weeks of editorials and just in time to celebrate our park system on the Fourth. A well-oiled park system cost money to maintain much like that dream girlfriend you often infatuate about. Keeping that beautiful girl with the long flowing, golden, wispy hair and deep blue eyes takes money. Lots of money. Money you don’t have and don’t know where to get, or how to get, but you’ll die trying. For without that money, your dream girl wanders off and the park goes into ruin, just like Rome, and let’s face it. It’s because you and your girly aren’t there to help maintain that glamorous status that says this park is the place to be. I get a kick out of seeing the brothers team up against the slightly pudgy ex-Highlanders in a friendly game of

b-ball and it’s all about getting/staying in shape and developing camaraderie, and of course it beats the alternative. When your lady Rich Whelen says she is thirsty, COMMUNITY PRESS you want to be able GUEST COLUMNIST to take her someplace close by and get her a cold something. I’m thinking at a concession stand. Like Diana Krall sings, “Peel me a grape.” You see if you’re gonna have an award winning park system, you gotta put out the bling to maintain it lest the parking lots and fields fill up with enough disgusting bottles, cans, cigarette butts, and candy bar wrappers to match the duck stuff nearby on a sultry, summer after-

noon. Getting back to that gorgeous blonde we were talking about. Well, there’s nothing more attractive than a well manicured ball diamond with freshly cross cut outfield and precisely graded and dragged infield. Or picnic benches, tables, and grounds void of tree limbs, bird droppings, and duck stuff. Sort of like the dream girl with makeup just so, perfect mascara, slender, shaven legs just in from their biweekly run, and that enticing hint of some exotic fragrance. Folks, if you want to save your parks and keep them in shape and available for quality recreation and year-round entertainment, then there’s only one solution ... Luebber and Duebber, running mates, November 2014. Rich Whelen lives in Delhi Township.

Ohio’s war on local governments

The Kasich administration has declared war on Ohio’s local governments. The drastic reductions in the Local Government Fund have forced cities, villages and townships across the state to seek additional levies just to provide minimal services. If the levies don’t pass the money runs out and the services stop. Or local taxes have to increase to maintain them. Cuts of this magnitude in state funding were neither necessary nor equitable. State revenues are up and state spending continues to rise. But they are literally stashing the money in their savings accounts while local governments struggle. The Local Government Fund was established to replace local revenues the state took over the years and to provide resources for services the



state required. Now all bets are off as the current regime works to put local communities right to the wall. Some of it may be the result of the “metro government Dusty Rhodes crowd” that seems to COMMUNITY PRESS have Gov. Kasich’s GUEST COLUMNIST ear. Some if it may be the same disdain for our service and safety providers as seen in the effort to enact the ill-fated Senate Bill 5 in 2011. State legislators backing this attack on localities urge “shared services” ignoring that most have been sharing the services they can for years. Others suggest “hard choices” but their only “hard choice” was to raid local governments funding.

A publication of




Adding insult to injury the new state budget raises individual property taxes by ending reductions begun with the state income tax and limiting the Homestead Exemption for seniors and the disabled. It sets up the absurd new reality of one senior property owner getting about a $400 property tax reduction while their neighbor who turned 65 a few years later will not. Good luck explaining the obvious injustice. It is truly ironic that Gov. Kasich wants the Legislature to expand Medicaid by accepting future federal funding pledges. If local communities cannot depend on the state to keep its promises, how can Ohio depend on the feds to keep theirs? Dusty Rhodes is the Hamilton County auditor

Skirt Game will be played Aug. 2 The following is a verbatim text of a message I delivered to the Delhi Township Trustees at their last meeting. It concerns the agreement that was approved by the township trustees that allows the Skirt Game to be played at Delhi Township Park on Aug. 2. As co-chair of the event in conjunction with Marty Smith, we as leaders of the Skirt Game Committee are happy with the arrangements this agreement provides the Skirt Game. This agreement allows the Skirt Game to run the Park Concession Stand and to use the proceeds from the concession stand to help those in need in Delhi. We think this is a fair agreement and in fact the bulk of Clyde Kober COMMUNITY PRESS this agreement is a proposal made by Marty and GUEST COLUMNIST I to the township administrator back in March. So below is the message that I delivered about the agreement that is fair to the township administration, the Skirt Game committee and the taxpayers of this community: Tonight we are here to thank the township government and their employees for coming together with us to get a contract done so we can have the 36th annual Delhi Skirt Game at the township park. I want to specifically thank Sandy Monahan, the parks director, and Township Administrator Pete Landrum who worked with the Skirt Game committee to get this deal done. And of course, I would be remiss if I did not thank the trustees for their support in approving this contract. I want everyone to know that the committee is satisfied with this agreement and feel like we were treated fairly in this process. I want everyone to know that we appreciate the hard work that the park employees put into getting the park ready and cleaned up after this community’s summer party. Having been involved with the skirt game for about 20 years now and having worked with Marty and the committee to actually produce this thing the last seven years, I personally do not know what this community would be like without the skirt game. Last year we netted $56,000 throughout the year and spent over $53,000 of that money helping people in Delhi. That is only 5 percent overhead. We couldn’t do it without all of the volunteers, all of our donors and all of the township employees who work hard to make this a success. And of course if we had to pay for everyone who helped with the skirt game and who mowed the grass, worked security, manned a booth and played in the game, we could not provide the support to the community that we do. Also, the Delhi Park is an awesome place for this event. Without those facilities and without the people who work there and manage the facilities, the skirt game would not be the skirt game. So for all who helped get this contract together and approve it, we thank you. For all those who are going to help either set up, work the game or clean up afterwards, we thank you. For all those who donate to the cause and support the community in any way we thank you. Now, all there is to do is pray for good weather and pray that all those who support the skirt game will continue to do so. If you really think about it, what would this community be without this the Delhi Skirt Game? And for my part, I couldn’t imagine it anywhere but Delhi Township Park. Clyde Kober is co-chairman of the Delhi Skirt Game Committee. He lives in Delhi Township.

Easy meatball, key lime pie recipes

I’m so excited I can hardly contain myself. For a while now I have been yearning to get beehives. We had them when the boys were little and the taste of raw honey, with its super nutritional profile, Rita had me Heikenfeld hooked. RITA’S KITCHEN Tony Poe, our local beekeeper, came out to our little patch of heaven to see if his bees could make a happy home here. Our neighbors have agreed to have the hives along the property line so they will be protected. I’ll let you know what the final assessment is. Here’s hoping …


Tips from readers’ kitchens

Mary Jane Kenyon’s pineapple coleslaw: I’m liking this one! Mary Jane, a Blue Ash reader, sent this to share: “A quick refreshing salad using a fresh package of coleslaw. I use Marzetti Light Original Slaw dressing along with a can of crushed pineapple including juice. I make ahead in the day to blend flavors. This is great when you need a salad and not a lot of time to prepare.”

Annie Mitchell’s porcupine meatballs recipe is a childhood favorite from her mother. THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD

Cyndi’s porcupine meatballs

Last month I did a cooking demo with friends Giovanna Trimpe, author of “Holy Chow,” and Annie Mitchell, news director at Sacred Heart Radio, at the CincItalia festival at Harvest Home Park. Annie made these delicious meatballs as an appetizer. No kidding, these are simple and really good. Annie told me she grew up with these meatballs that her mom, Cyndi, made for them. “It’s one of my favorite meals from childhood until now. We eat them with mashed potatoes and succotash,” she told me. I love the fact that

Don’t look for a bright green color here unless you add food coloring. True key lime juice looks a bit like lemon juice. I once made this with real key limes. It took close to a week’s earnings to purchase enough key limes. (OK, I’m exaggerating here, but you get the point.) The key limes were so tiny and exuded hardly any juice. Key lime juice is the answer here! This is one of colleague Brian Patrick’s favorite pies. Shell Either purchase one or make your own by combining 11⁄2 cups gra-

ham cracker crumbs, 4 tablespoons sugar and 6 tablespoons butter, melted. Pat into pan and bake in 350 degree oven for about 7-10 minutes, depending upon how crisp you want your crust.

Be careful when getting ‘free’ credit score

These days it’s not only important to carefully check your credit reports regularly, it’s a good idea to know your credit score. You need to know it before buying anything on credit. But while many websites claim to offer free or low-cost credit scores, unless you’re careful it could end up costing you more than you expected. Elaine Huntley, of Covington, found a website offering a low-cost credit score. “It stated

for a dollar you could get three credit scores. So, they asked me for my credit Howard card numAin ber and I HEY HOWARD! gave it to them. Not only did they take a dollar, the next month they took $29.95 out of my account. In April, they took $29.95 out of my account again without me knowing,”

Huntley said. Huntley called the company and asked why they took nearly $30 each month. “They said by checking the spot that said a dollar, I automatically agreed to the terms, but there were no terms there,” she said. It turns out in addition to paying a dollar for her credit score, Huntley had agreed to pay nearly $30 a month for identity theft protection, something she says she never realized.

Huntley searched the Internet and found she’s not the only one who feels misled by that company. “I went on the Internet and I pulled them up online and there are more than 150 complaints against them, where they’ve done this same thing to people – charged them without their knowledge,” Huntley said. I checked the website and found the charges are disclosed but they’re very easy to miss. In fact, the Better

Business Bureau has more than 2,000 complaints about that company. The BBB says customers complain they don’t understand the requirement to cancel within seven days. In addition, the BBB says consumers don’t understand they are agreeing to a monthly membership. Huntley filed a police report and has disputed the charges with her bank. My advice, if you want your credit score and credit monitoring,

you can get both without paying anything. There’s a company called Credit Karma that, for free, provides your score and monitors your credit so you’re alerted every time someone accesses your credit report. You can sign up at Howard Ain answers consumer complaints weekdays on WKRC-TV Local 12. Write to him at 12 WKRC-TV, 1906 Highland Ave., Cincinnati 45219.

PWC educates homeowners on fall prevention One out of three Americans 65 years and older fall each year.



BLOOMINGTON, INDIANA JULY 10-20, 2013 CE-0000561594

The Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County is pleased to be partnering with acclaimed illustrator Will Hillenbrand to create an e-book based on the theme "Everyday Heroes: Local Children and the People Who Inspire Them." THANKS

In the city of Cincinnati alone, 2,300 calls were made to 911 reporting a fall. In Hamilton County the number of falls from 2004 to 2011 has risen 23 percent and that number is constantly increasing. With 48 percent of these falls happening at home, People Working Cooperatively is looking for ways to make prevention a household name. PWC is a 38-year-old non-profit that offers home repairs, weatherization and modifications

for low income elderly and disabled homeowners. Its for-profit social enterprise, Whole Home, offers home modifications and aging in place solutions for anyone at any income level. White Oak resident Ron Henlein of People Working Cooperative has been researching local and national fall rates and is putting together a plan to reduce falls in the Tristate area. Some of the groups PWC is collaborating with for the new program include Hamilton County Fall Prevention Task Force, the city of Cincinnati, Mercy, TriHealth, Greater Cincinnati Foundation, Visiting Nurses Association and others. “Specifically, PWC is heavily involved in developing a 'Fall Prevention' program for seniors; this

not a natural part of aging and changes such as grab bars in the bath, banisters on all steps along with proper lighting, elimination of area rugs which are in poor condition, night lighting from the bedroom to the bathroom all can substantially reduce your chances of experiencing a fall.” PWC’s social enterprise, Whole Home, offers seniors tips on how to keep fall free. PWC offers low-income homeowners home modifications to help them live safely in their home, where they want to be. “PWC and Whole Home have been engaged in a huge amount of outreach to help keep elderly people safe ... over 1,000 people year to date that we’ve educated on fall prevention so far,” Henlein said.
