Delhi Skirt Game to help tot
By Heidi Fallon
His big, blue eyes can’t see the love that surrounds him. Christian Rainier is a 4year-old who will be one of this year’s Skirt Game recipients. Two years after he was born, Christian was diagnosed with septo optic dysplasia that means his optic nerves don’t connect with his brain. Shortly after that diagnoses, his parents, Cody and Melissa Rainier, were told their son has diabetes insipidus, which means he can’t walk or speak. “He’s my blue-eyed angel,” said his grandmother, Beverly Rainier. “As he gets older and bigger,” said his grandfather Derek Rainier, “it’s going to be harder for Melissa to be able to lift HEIDI FALLON/STAFF and transport Christian.” Clyde Kober, Skirt Game Perched on the lap of his mom, Melissa, Christian Rainier will be one of the Skirt Game recipients this year.

The water has been turned on and a bubbling fountain now serves as a welcome sign to the Delhi Township Park. The Delhi Business Association paid for the water feature and landscaping at the park entrance off Delhi Road as its contribution to the pike project. Steve Schott, association president, said his group will have an official dedication ceremony soon. “We will turn the fountain over to the township as our gift,” Schott said. “We designed it to be a low maintenance area.” The fountain is actually three individual rock posts circulating water from an in-ground basin. It’s surrounded by flowers and plants, and the brick pavers the association sold to help finance the fountain. “We sold 108 bricks and still have a few left if anyone is interested,” said Marty Schultes, association secretary. “We are so happy the water feature is completed.” Schott credits Schultes and association members Russ Brown and Chip Brigham, who was association president when the project began. Schultes said Premier Landscape and Irrigation Service donated $9,000 in materials and labor to the $15,000 project. “The fountain is an excellent example of the

It’s not a new car, but it’s new to the members of the Delhi Township Citizens on Patrol who will be driving it. The township police department turned over the keys to a used cruiser to the group last week. The car the group had been using, also an old cruiser, is headed for the auction block. Getting ready for their assignment for the day’s patrol, three members of the COP are grateful for the new set of wheels. “It really enables us to get around the township to be the eyes and ears for the police department, which is what our group is all about,” said Tom Winkler, COP president. Lt. Jeff Braun said the cruiser has more than 100,000 miles on it, which is beyond what the police department considers reliable for daily use by officers. “It’s perfectly safe and runs fine, but it just is starting to have maintenance and mechanical issues that make it unreliable for us, but perfectly fine for the COP,” Braun said. The group paid for the new decals on the cruiser. The only expense for the police department is in gas and insurance. Members of the Citizens on Patrol must have graduated from the citizens police academy. To get behind the wheel of the cruiser,

Allie Hart said it’s a lot more difficult to produce a commercial than one would think. “It’s kind of a long process,” the Green Township teen said. “But it was fun to make.” Hart, a recent Mother of Mercy High School graduate, and her fellow classmates showcase their filming and editing skills in a commercial they created for Ford’s Focus on Schools project. Before finishing the school year, Mercy students in Chris Kroner’s broadcast arts class wrote, filmed and edited a 2minute video highlighting the 2012 Ford Focus. Sponsored locally by Walt Sweeney Ford, Mercy was invited to participate in the

Walt Sweeney loaned Mercy a new Focus for a day of filming and also donated $500 to the school. “It was a good experience for the girls,” Kroner said. “I’m very pleased with how the video turned out.”
Hart, who will attend Xavier University this fall, said she dressed up as Mercy’s Bobcat mascot for the commercial, which features roughly 30 Mercy students and the front of the school’s campus. She said everyone in her broadcast arts class worked together to develop the storyline and figure out what shots they needed for the video, which they titled “Bobcats Feelin’ Focused.” After recording all the footage, she said students worked in Mercy’s broadcasting studio and MacLab to edit the video and add music they created using software called Garage Band. She said they wanted to make a video that featured both the car and Mercy’s school spirit.

Greenhills facility honors colorful artists By Heidi Fallon firstname.lastname@example.org
Two of the four winners in the Alois Alzheimer Center’s recent coloring contest get a sneak peek at the prizes they’ll be receiving. From left is Annette DeCamp, executive administrative assistant with the Greenhills facility; Marvin Knobloch, outreach and activities director; third-place winner Emily Giglio, Delhi Township; and Hannah Abrahamson, 16, Montgomery, who earned an honorable mention.
The colorful creativity made choosing the four top artists difficult. Still, residents at the Alois Alzheimer Center were able to pick their favorites in the recent coloring contest. Staff of the Greenhills facility passed out pictures of an elephant during a volunteer stint at the zoo. Children were urged to color the pale pachyderm and mail them back to the center.
“We were thrilled with the response,” said Annette DeCamp, executive administrative assistant. “We received 114 entries and narrowed those down to 14. Then, we let our residents pick their favorites.” With ages ranging from 1 to 16, the entries spanned the spectrum of grass green elephants, elephants with polka dots, some with stripes and some with mere scrawls. “They used everything from crayons to markers to
finger paints,” DeCamp said. The idea was to both educate and entertain. “We were looking for a way to engage the children we encountered at the zoo as well as providing awareness about Alzheimer disease and our facility,” said Marvin Knobloch, outreach and activities director. There was contact information on the back of each coloring page for folks who wanted to know more. “We came up with the coloring contest idea and used the theme of elephants never forget,” Knobloch
said. The three top winners received prizes of $100 for first place and $50 for second- and third-place. There also was an honorable mention award given. The winners were honored at the center, treated to punch and cookies and given their prizes. The winners were Alexsys Stonto, Cleves; Ben Peaslee, Okeana; neither of whom were able to attend the celebration; Emily Giglio, Delhi Township; and Hannah Abrahamson, Montgomery.
Former teacher sentenced in sex case
Pay down your mortgage just by making everyday purchases.
Gannett News Service Former St. Dominic School teacher Matthew Herrmann begged for forgiveness July 7 for his sex crimes involving two girl students. But in the end the was sentenced to 26 years in prison by Hamilton County Common Pleas Court Judge Robert Winkler. Herrmann taught Spanish and reading at the Delhi Township Catholic school last year when he was arrested for having sex with one girl and convincing her to send nude photos via email. He also solicited both girls – who were ages 12-14 over the course of his crimes – for sex using cell phone text messages. Herrmann and his supporters often blamed his acts on his reaction to the stillborn birth of his son – and the “provocative” actions of his young victims. “Had the conduct of these young ladies, particularly the sexting, not been so provocative, this situation would not have occurred. Mr. Herrmann in no way attempted to threaten or coerce them,” Herrmann’s attorney, James Hartke, wrote to Winkler. “If he was 16 instead of 36, he would have been grounded. Sexting is not being prosecuted against the young ladies.”
H e r rmann, who has been in the Hamilton County Justice Center for more than a year Herrmann awaiting resolution of his case, spent more than 30 minutes begging the judge to give him probation and no more time behind bars. After a son was stillborn in 2006, Herrmann and his supporters who spoke Thursday said, he went into a deep depression. “I hate what I have done and I would offer my life without a moment’s hesitation” for it to not have happened, Herrmann said Thursday. “I have failed you all.” He took responsibility for his actions and their devastating impact – on his victims, their families and his family. But Herrmann’s selfdescription didn’t match that of the person who sent many sexually graphic texts to the two girls, Assistant Prosecutor Megan Shanahan countered. In some, he asked the girls to pose in sexually explicit ways, take pictures and send them to him. Both victims were in court but didn’t speak, instead having Shanahan read letters they wrote.

Group gives help, hope to jobless Gannett News Service Cinda Gorman knows firsthand what it’s like when career plans derail. Two and a half years ago, she and her husband, Steve, were serving their 18th year as co-pastors of Westwood First Presbyterian Church. But in these tough economic times, the church didn’t have the budget to sustain both salaries, and Gorman, who had worked as a pastor since 1975, found herself exploring new avenues. “I saw myself retiring from pastoral ministry and it didn’t happen,” said Gorman, 61, of Westwood, a past Enquirer Woman of the Year honoree. “There are a
lot of people out there who thought they’d get that golden watch and hit the golf course, and it doesn’t happen.” Today, Gorman owns a life and career coaching business, Seasons of Purpose. After losing her job, she attended the Hyde Park Job Search Focus Group at Hyde Park Community United Methodist Church. Noting the large size of that group, she saw the need for a satellite group. In June 2009, she founded the Western Hills Job Search Satellite Group at Westwood First Presbyterian Church. Every Wednesday morning, a small group of job seekers – 15 to 20 per

week – gathers to hone their job search skills and to give and receive support. Facilitated by Gorman, it’s a positive atmosphere where success stories are celebrated. At a recent meeting, one woman brought doughnuts – a tradition when a member lands a new job. One member shared that he’d found a part-time job. Another shared that he had an interview that afternoon. Those success stories were followed by announcements and a recap of the previous week’s topic – public speaking – before the group launched into the agenda for the day, a workshop to practice interviewing skills. It was a departure from most weeks, when guest speakers share their expertise on topics ranging from networking to social media to personal branding. “The speakers’ time is worth thousands of dollars,” Gorman said. “That’s been a tremendous gift.” Meetings conclude with an accountability session, wherein everyone lists two

things they’ll do to advance their search during the next week. To remind members of their plans, those action items are noted in the meeting minutes sent out by Kathie Currier, a member of the group’s leadership team, which helps Gorman coordinate the meetings and with setup, cleanup and other tasks. Currier, 60, of Colerain Township, credits the group with helping her explore new career avenues. She’d worked at the same job in commercial real estate, specializing in property management and leasing for office buildings, for 15 years when her company restructured for cost savings, eliminating her position. She started off her 22month unemployment bent on staying in the commercial arena, but with the group’s help and encouragement, she broadened her focus, eventually landing a job in April at Coldwell Banker West Shell’s Wyoming office as a Realtor concentrating on residential sales. “If it weren’t for this group, I might not have stepped out of my comfort zone.” Currier, who plans to keep attending group meetings as often as her new job permits, said she appreciated the opportunities to learn more about social media and up-to-date resume and interviewing skills that the group provided her. “A group like this is invaluable, especially if you’re in a position like I was and had been in the same job for a number of years,” she said. “Things have changed a lot.” David Lowe of Westwood, who started a new job as a locally based communications consultant for an out-of-state company in
April, noted that the group helped him grapple with initial feelings of discouragement that come with job loss. “I learned that this isn’t really about me; this is about the economy,” said Lowe, 43, who served on the group’s leadership team while he was looking for work. “It’s impossible not to take the experience personally, but the group helps you manage that.” The group’s smaller size, members agree, makes it easier to develop strong bonds and support one another. As the group celebrates its second anniversary this month, Gorman estimates

that it has touched more than 150 people. She refers to her work with the group as her “ministry.” “It really is what I feel called to do,” she said. “It’s my purpose; it’s what I’ve been given the gifts or the strengths to do.” Gorman is quick to stress, though, that she’s just the facilitator; the speakers teach the skills, and the members provide support and hope. “The whole joblessness thing can be a terrible season in someone’s life,” she said. “This gives them hope; it’s like the handles to pull themselves into their future.”

Meals-On-Wheels clients at risk for severe malnutrition by offering oral nutritional supplements (e.g. Boost or Ensure) over a two-year period. Project HEAL will target clients residing in Hamilton County enrolled in the Hamilton County Elderly Services Program administered by the Council on Aging of Southwestern Ohio. “The goal of this project is to assist clients who are at highest risk for malnutrition to achieve improved nutritional status with the addition of oral nutritional supplements to their current meals-on-wheels,” said Stephen Smookler, executive director, Wesley Community Services. “This is an exciting endeavor for Wesley Community Services as we become the only Meals-OnWheels provider in Southwestern Ohio to offer oral nutritional supplements to Meals-On-Wheels clients,” said the Rev. Stephanie Tunison, chief executive officer, Wesley Services Organization. “Project HEAL will add a new dimension to Wesley’s family of services by promoting added nutritional intervention for the elderly,” she said. The project replicates a handful of meals-on-wheels programs nationwide that provide oral nutritional supplements to seniors.

TFA soccer team heads to President’s Cup nationals By Ben Walpole email@example.com
Area families are busy enjoying summer vacations around the country this month. Myrtle Beach. Hilton Head. Siesta Key. Maybe Cape Cod. But the girls from the Tri-State Futbol Alliance U-14 Premier soccer team? They’re in lovely Des Moines, Iowa, of all places. The Tri-State FA Premier U-14 girls soccer team celebrates after winning the regional US Youth Soccer Presidents Cup. The team is coached by fatherson Jack and Joe Cramerding. Team members include Hannah Bailey, Jessica Bennett, Lili Cassiere, Alison Franke, McKenzie Frommeyer, Sofia Geiler, Megan Groll, Jessica Handley, Emma Haussler, Cassie Johnson, Hannah Koschmeder, Madeline Krebs, Carly Niehauser, Allyson Radziwon, Allie Robertson, Elisabeth Schiller, Molly Taylor, Evan Vanderpohl and Grace Weismiller. Thanks to Lisa Haussler And guess what? They’re having the time of their lives. The Cleves-based team competes for the U.S. Youth Soccer National Presidents Cup, July 610, having won the Region II championship last month. “I kind of expected it,” said Jessia Handley, a midfielder from Bridgetown who will be a freshman at Oak Hills High School in the fall. “I believed in our team.

The Tri-State FA Premier U-14 girls soccer team celebrates after winning the regional US Youth Soccer Presidents Cup. The team is coached by fatherson Jack and Joe Cramerding. Team members include Hannah Bailey, Jessica Bennett, Lili Cassiere, Alison Franke, McKenzie Frommeyer, Sofia Geiler, Megan Groll, Jessica Handley, Emma Haussler, Cassie Johnson, Hannah Koschmeder, Madeline Krebs, Carly Niehauser, Allyson Radziwon, Allie Robertson, Elisabeth Schiller, Molly Taylor, Evan Vanderpohl and Grace Weismiller. ured that we would make it far.” The nine-and-a-half-hour trip to Iowa marks the farthest the girls have traveled for a tournament. Head coach Jack Cramerding also set up their hotel arrangements in a new way. The players are staying at their own hotel – with a few chaperones, but away from the rest of the team families – for the first
time, to create the feeling of a college soccer team rolling into town for a tournament. And they’re loving it. “We are so hyped up right now,” said McKenzie Frommeyer Wednesday afternoon from the team’s new lodging. “We were all running around the hotel a few minutes ago.” In addition to the national tournament, the team is making time
to enjoy the city, playing some miniature golf and going to a waterpark. If it sounds like these girls are having a blast playing soccer together, it's because they are. Most of the girls hail from the west side of Cincinnati – Delhi Township, Green Township, Bridgetown, Cleves, Westwood. They hang out at each other’s houses during the summer, on
weekends, outside of soccer. “We’ve had the same group for four years,” assistant coach Joe Cramerding said. “They’ve been together for a long time. Some of them have been together since they were 8 years old.” The familiarity isn’t just good for having fun on team trips. It helps a lot on the field. “We’re not afraid to tell each other what we’re doing wrong,” said Evan Vanderpool of Bridgetown, another future Oak Hills Scot. As the team’s starting goalkeeper, she pitched a shutout in the 2-0 national qualifier victory. Frommeyer lives in Delhi and will attend Seton this fall. She takes great pride in helping to build the team’s friendships as a two-year captain. “It’s a big thing,” Frommeyer said. “We have a lot of humor on the team. We are all very wacky.” Frommeyer and Price Hill resident Ally Radziwon, also an incoming Seton freshman, agreed that the team’s greatest strength on the field is its ability to maintain possession of the ball, a skill built on team chemistry and experience. After losing at the state level last season, this is the group’s first trip to nationals. “The girls are getting older,” Joe Cramerding said. “They’re starting to understand. That 'a-ha' moment is starting to kick in.” For more coverage, visit Cincinnati.com/blogs/presspreps
Back at home in the sports beat
Cincinnati Steam outfielder and former Oak Hills High School standout Jake Proctor takes a big swing during the Steam’s 61 loss to Xenia, July 6. With the loss, the Steam fell to 15-5 on the season, but remained two games ahead of Xenia for first place in the Great Lakes Summer Collegiate League South Division. Proctor, who plays college ball at Bowling Green State University, was second on the team with a .348 average and 13 RBI. He was named to the GLSCL All-Star Game, which will be played at Great American Ball Park, July 13.
Proctor to represent Steam at GLSCL All-Star game
Six players from the Cincinnati Steam will represent the squad at the Great Lakes Collegiate Summer League mid-summer classic. Kevin Bower, Zach Isler, Ryan Martin, Nick Priessman, Jake Proctor and Robby Sunderman will suit up for the all-star squad at Great American Ball Park, July 13. Sunderman, who was a graduate of Moeller High School, will be a sophomore on the University of Dayton’s squad next spring. The infielder is fourth on the Steam with a .309 average. He’s also demonstrated stellar glove work by posting a .965 fielding percentage at second base. Proctor, a former Oak Hills High School standout, is second on the Steam with
a .348 average while hitting out of the three hole. The centerfielder, who attends the University of Cincinnati, has 13 RBI on the summer. Eastern Illinois University’s Priessman has also put his impressive talents on display this summer. While batting leadoff, the outfielder and former Colerain standout leads the team in hits (20), runs (18) and walks (14). Martin, a Turpin High School graduate who plays for Michigan State University, earned a trip to the game by being lights out relief work. In 12.1 innings pitched, Martin hasn’t allowed a run and has 12 strikeouts, while only allowing three walks and seven hits in six appearances. He’s 1-0 on the sum-
mer. Isler, who graduated from Covington Catholic High School and plays at the University of Cincinnati, has also been one of the Steam’s more consistent arms. The closer is 2-0 with a 0.90 ERA in eight appearances. In 10 innings, he’s allowed only one earned run, while allowing no walks. Bower, a native of Indianapolis, Ind., leads the steam with 18 RBIs and is tied for the league lead in home runs (3). He leads the Steam with a .353 average. The GLSCL All-Star Game at Great American Ball Park will be July 13 at 6 p.m. Gates will open at 4:30 p.m. Tickets are $10. All stats are based off records through July 6.
It feels good to be home. Though to be fair, I never actually left. I started covering sports for The Community Press in August 2000 at the ripe old age of 21. In the fall of 2005 I switched to page design and copy editing. Same company, different department. And now July 2011 completes the circle. Here I am, returning to my old community sports reporter stomping grounds. I’ve certainly been busy elsewhere. I sing and write songs for a band called The Minor Leagues. I’ve got a weekly NBA podcast called The Crab Dribble that I do with my Community Press pals, Rob Dowdy and Jason Brubaker. But something about covering community sports just feels right. It’s in my blood. Always has been, going back to the homemade sports newsletter I passed out each week to my seventh-grade class-

You’ll see me in the far west, covering Glenway Avenue – West High, Taylor, Oak Hills, Elder, Seton and Mercy; the far east, covering Clermont County – Goshen, Milford, Clermont Northeastern, New Richmond, Williamsburg and Batavia; and points in between – Winton Woods, Finneytown, Mount Healthy, Aiken and St. Xavier.
A lot has changed since I last covered sports. When I first started in 2000 we had film cameras and no company email. Now they’re issuing me a cell phone, an iPad, a fancy laptop. We don’t just write for a newspaper anymore. The digitaldriven news cycle means we can get you the news instantly. It’s kind of crazy, but very exciting. So, read me in the paper.

CH@TROOM Last week’s question
What summer movie do you most look forward to seeing? What is your all-time favorite summer movie? “Sorry on this one I could not tell you what any movies are this summer, been so long since I went to a movie I would not know how to act in one of those big box houses. My thoughts go back to real movies when you saw them in real theaters like the Albee or Palace downtown or maybe even the Covedale in Price Hill.” L.S. “I'm looking forward to ‘Cars 2,’ with the grandkids. Anything James Bond would be my all time favorite(s).” B.N. “I just saw this wonderful film, ‘Super 8,’ written and directed by J.J. Abrams. I was prompted to see the movie because I saw a great interview of Abrams on Charlie Rose. It is a science fiction movie with superb acting and unbelievable special effects and cinematics. It runs you through a range of emotions. It is a coming of age film. It is a love story. It is the best film of the year to date! It will dominate the Academy Awards.” R.O.S. “Probably ‘Bad Teacher,’ even though we don’t go to movies much. I like Cameron Diaz, and the flyers for the movie on TV have been pretty interesting. “All time favorite summer movie? ‘Soylent Green’ – I loved the line where Charlton Heston says, ‘Soylent Green is people!!’ B.B. “I’m looking forward to seeing ‘Cars II’ with my grandchildren. Hollywood hasn’t made many movies in recent years that make me want to buy a ticket, but I get a real kick out of being in a theater with lots of children who have a unique way of expressing their delight over a movie that doesn’t have sex, swearing and violence. “The last time I had such an experience was when we saw ‘Wall-E.’” R.V.
Should teachers be allowed to defend themselves against aggressive students? Why or why not?
Next question Which TV commerical really annoys you? Why? Every week The Community Press asks readers a question they can reply to via e-mail. Send your answer to firstname.lastname@example.org with Chatroom in the subject line. “Of course, teachers should be able to defend themselves against aggressive students. If that teacher were a pedestrian on the sidewalk and was being threatened by an aggressive person, he/she would certainly be able to defend him/herself – even if that aggressive person was of student age. “Why take that ability away from a person just because he/she happens to be a teacher and the situation happens to occur within the four walls of an educational facility? “Schools are so fearful of reprisal and litigation that they have taken away tools from their teachers and administrators which, unfortunately, include those a ‘regular’ person would be allowed to use to defend him/herself in a serious situation. “A sad commentary both on society and on our educational system.” J.D. “Absolutely! I hardly think a reason is necessary; everyone has a right to protect and defend himself, especially from assault. Why should teachers be excluded? “I can just imagine that question being asked when I went to school (1942-1954). It would have elicited a big laugh.” B.B. “Yes I think teachers should be able to defend themselves against aggressive students. Not only are the teachers in danger, but also the other students. “There would have to be guidelines, but no one should have to go to work worried about their safety.” D.D. “If a student is physically attacking a teacher then of course the teacher should have the right to defend themselves. Getting a teachers license doesn’t mean they give up the right to selfpreservation.” J.K.
In June I attended a court hearing, packed with supporters brought forth by Price Hill Will, an organization committed to revitalizing the West Side through residential redevelopment. They filed a suit against Wells Fargo Bank and Deutsche Bank in an attempt to hold them accountable for the many properties they own as a result of having foreclosed on the homeowners. Both banks have failed to maintain their foreclosed properties, resulting in blighted houses, health hazards for neighbors and decreased property values for the homeowners who remain.

Social Security information for public employees We have important information that will be of interest to public employees. In Ohio, that includes, but is not limited to, workers in the Ohio Public Employee Retirement System (OPERS), State Teachers Retirement System of Ohio (STRS) and School Employees Retirement System of Ohio (SERS). If you work for an employer who does not withhold Social Security taxes from your salary, such as a government agency or school district, the pension you receive based on that work might reduce your Social Security benefits under the Windfall Elimination Provision (WEP). This provision affects how your retirement or disability benefit is calculated if you receive a pension from work where Social Security taxes were not taken out of your pay. We use a modified formula to calculate your benefit amount, resulting in a lower Social Security benefit. Why a modified formula? The law requires we determine Social Security benefit amounts with a formula that gives proportionately higher benefits to workers with low lifetime earnings. Before 1983, people who worked mainly in a job not covered by Social Security had their Social Security benefits calculated
as if they were long-term, lowwage workers. They received a Social Security benefit representing a higher percentage of their earnings, plus a pension from a job where they did not pay Social Security taxes. Congress passed the Windfall Elimination Provision to remove that advantage. A separate law could make a difference in benefits a spouse or widow(er) can receive. If you pay into another pension plan and do not pay into Social Security, any spouse or widow(er) benefits available through Social Security may be subject to a Government Pension Offset (GPO). Generally, if government employment was not covered by Social Security, any Social Security benefits must be reduced by two-thirds of the government pension amount. Benefits we pay to wives, husbands, widows and widowers are “dependent” benefits, established in the 1930s to compensate spouses who stayed home to raise a family and were financially dependent on the working spouse. Now it’s more common for both members of a married couple to work, each earning a Social Security retirement benefit. The law has always required that a person’s benefit as a spouse or
widow(er) be offset dollar for Sue Denny dollar by the amount of his or Community her own retirePress guest ment benefit. columnist Similarly, if this government employee’s work had instead been subject to Social Security taxes, any Social Security benefit payable as a spouse or widow(er) would have been reduced by the person’s own Social Security retirement benefit. To learn more about the Windfall Elimination Provision and the Government Pension Offset, view the webinar titled How Some Public Employee or Teacher Pensions May Affect Social Security Benefits at www.socialsecurity.gov/ webinars/, and visit our online portal for government employees at www.socialsecurity.gov/gpowep. You will find lots of useful information, including fact sheets and online calculators to estimate your Social Security benefits if either law affects you.

Smog season is here again Now that the warm weather has sprung upon us full force, so has the smog. In early June the 90s hit the Tristate and brought with it the region’s first smog alert of the season. So what exactly is smog and why does it become such an issue during these hot summer months? Smog is an air pollutant containing gases and other reactive chemical mixtures that is formed when sunlight combines with them. They create an irritating mixture throughout the air making breathing difficult, especially for children, the elderly and people with respiratory problems. Now that the heat has arrived, the warm temperatures increasingly facilitate the mixing of those gases which creates more air contamination. Along with the temperatures, urban areas are among the top of the list for high smog levels. In the Ohio-Kentucky-Indiana Regional Council of Governments region that consists of Butler, Clermont, Hamilton and Warren counties in Ohio; Boone, Campbell and
Kenton counties in Kentucky and Dearborn County, IN., this is due, mainly, to exhaust from vehicles. Geography has something to do with it as well; since the region sits in a valley of sorts, the surroundings could trap the pollution inside. In order to see a decrease in the amount of smog that is formed, residents of the Tristate area need to be informed and stay conscientious. OKI is a non-profit organization actively trying to keep citizens aware of the smog issues in the Tristate area. OKI’s primary charge is to notify people, businesses and the media of smog alerts on days when there is high air contamination. OKI’s “Do Your Share for Cleaner Air” campaign is one way the community can stay informed about smog and related air pollution issues. This campaign gives many examples of what individuals can do to help keep our air clean, such as: • Carpool with friends or coworkers: sign up for RideShare, a
free service, by v i s i t i n g www.rideshareonline.org. • Turn off all Lauren unused lights. • Refuel Koehler vehicles after 8 Community p.m. Press guest • Use lawncolumnist mowers after 8 p.m. • Walk, bike or Rollerblade on short trips If carpooling or vanpooling is not feasible, individuals can park at one of the many park and rides around the Tristate area and take a bus (call METRO 513-621-4455 or TANK 859-331-8265). Simply spreading the word to friends and family is also helpful. For more information and additional tips to reduce air pollution, visit www.doyourshare.org, become a fan on Facebook at www.facebook.com/doyourshare, or call 1-800-621-SMOG.

Soggy spring a set-up for summer slugfest
With all the rainfall this spring, slug populations have been at an all-time slimy high. And these “slime balls” will destroy you favorite plants when you aren’t looking. So how do you control these slow-moving slimy leaf eaters? First, you need to learn a little bit about them.
What are slugs and what do they do?
Slugs are simply shell-less snails. These slimy creatures are mollusks, vary in size from 1⁄4 inch to 5 inches-plus, range from dark black-brown to orange in color, are hermaphroditic (male and female) laying up to 100 eggs or more (spring and summer), and are highly dependent on moisture in the ground and surrounding habitat. The slime trails they leave behind (when moving) become silvery when dry, and are used to identify the presence of slugs (along with holes in the plant’s foliage). Slugs over-winter as adults hiding in the ground. In the summer, they hide during the day under garden debris, mulch, rocks, boards, weeds and groundcover, to
stay out of the sun and wind. A slug is 80 percent water, and its slime is 98 percent water, so cool, dark and damp living conditions are important, and the main reason they feed at night, or during cloudy days. Slugs are especially active after rainfalls or irrigation periods. Slugs (snails) feed on a variety of living plants as well as decaying plant matter. They have chewing mouthparts and cause plant damage by creating large irregularly shaped holes in leaves with tattered edges. They prefer succulent foliage or flowers, seedlings, herbaceous plants, and fruit lying on or close to the ground, etc., but eat anything from garbage to feeding on bones. Hostas, by the way, are definitely one of their favorite plants.
How can I control slugs in my garden?
There are several ways to help control slug populations, and in most cases, a combination of methods works best. Cultural controls: Eliminate places where slugs can
hide, like stones, debris, weeds, and h e a v y mulches, and try to use plants less susRon Wilson ceptible to In the Garden slug damages. Open up the areas to more sunlight and airflow, which slugs do not like. Handpicking: Have a “Slugfest” to see who can pick the most slugs. Pick at night with a flashlight in hand. This is effective if done on a regular basis. Water the area before picking to entice the slugs out. Trapping: Inverted melon rinds or grapefruit halves make excellent traps. Scrape off the accumulated slugs daily and destroy them. Beer-baited traps work nicely. Use empty tuna cans, place in the ground around plants and fill with beer (nonalcoholic beer works best). Slugs are attracted to the beer, fall in the can and drown. Empty and refill with beer as needed. Barriers: Copper barriers
around beds will keep slugs from entering. Using coarse sand, crushed egg shells or used coffee grounds around desirable plants creates a border to help keep slugs out. Sprinkling the soil and or foliage with *diatomaceous earth acts as a barrier; when slugs crawl across it, they are sliced and dehydrate. Even using pine straw for mulch seems to deter slug populations. Baits: Slug baits are probably the most consistent method of slug control, but not all are labeled for around edibles (read the label). Covered containers or bait traps can be used to minimize poisoning concerns. Bonide’s *SlugMagic or Espoma’s *Slug & Snail Control are slug baits (less toxic/much safer) and can be used around children, pets, wildlife, the garden, etc. Natural enemies: Slugs have natural enemies, including ducks, geese, chickens, snakes, toads, turtles, birds, beetles, spiders, ants, harvestmen and firefly larvae. Invite these guys to your slugfest! *Note: Always read and follow the label/directions on each recommended product before use. Actual slug con-
trol will vary due to many factors, and rarely is there ever 100 percent control. We do not recommend the use of salt in or on top of the soil for slug control.

Rita’s version of Tink Stewart’s blueberry buckle. Tink’s touch – that extra bit of love folded in. I’ve adapted it slightly. Delicious. 2 cups flour 3 ⁄4 cup sugar 21⁄2 teaspoons baking powder 3 ⁄4 teaspoon salt 1 ⁄4 cup shortening 3 ⁄4 cup milk 1 egg slightly beaten 2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries (thawed and drained) Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray or grease 9inch square or round pan. Blend everything but berries and beat 30 seconds. Stir in berries. Spread into pan. Sprinkle with crumb topping and bake 40 to 50 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out
Blend together 1

Perfect for the little ones to mix up. You can substitute pineapple chunks for the orange sections. 1 cup mini marshmallows 1 cup sour cream, regular or light 1 cup orange sections (and these can be canned mandarin oranges, drained) 1 cup grapes 1 cup flaked coconut Mix everything together. Chill. Serves four to six.
Perfectly grilled salmon
The 70⁄30 rule applies to any seafood on the grill. Have the grill hot, lightly brush both sides of the fish with oil, and start grilling skin side up with the grill closed as much as possible. (Or just put a disposable pan over the fish). Leave it alone until about 70 percent of the fish is done on the first side. You’ll know it by the looks and also if it will release easily. This allows the fish to form a nice crust. Turn it and finish cooking. The rule about seven to 10 minutes per inch of thickness works well, too. Here’s how I season mine: Brush four salmon fillets, about 6 ounces each, with skin (or not) on both sides with olive or other oil. Season both sides with salt and 1⁄4 teaspoon red pepper flakes (this is enough for all four) and the juice of a lime (about 2 tablespoons). Grill as indicated above.

Mercy High School hosts annual golf outing Mother of Mercy High School will host the 20th annual Mary Jo Huismann Golf Invitational on Friday, Aug. 19 at The Grand Oak Golf Club in West Harrison, Ind. Alumnae, family and friends of Mercy are invited to attend the golf outing, which has been renamed to honor Mary Jo Huismann who recently retired as Mercy’s athletic director after serving 39 years. The golf invitational committee has set a goal to raise $20,000 at this event which will provide educational tuition grants to deserving student-athletes attending Mother of Mercy. The event is co-chaired by Mercy alumnae Melissa “Mertz” Wegman
and Jennifer Wegman Smith. “I am very thankful to have had the opportunity to attend Mercy. Now I am honored to assist a variety of young women who may not have the same opportunities without these educational tuition grants provided by the proceeds of this phenomenal and fabulously fun event,” said Wegman. The Wegman Co. is the presenting sponsor for the golf outing and the Kroger Co. and Valley Interior are Bobcat sponsors. Two shotgun starts are scheduled; the morning tee-time is at 8:30 a.m. and includes continental breakfast and the afternoon start is at 1:30 p.m. A luncheon buffet will be available for
both flights at noon. There will also be several contests including low gross women’s foursome, men’s foursome and mixed foursome as well as longest drive, longest putt and closest to the pin for each flight. In addition, raffle prizes will be given and a silent auction held for both sessions. A dinner buffet and social will begin at 6 p.m. Attendees may register for the golf outing or attend just the dinner buffet and social. To register for this event or for more information about sponsorship opportunities go to www.motherofmercy.org or contact Mercy’s Athletic Office at 513-661-2740.
Compassionate Friends has Walk to Remember
Thanks to the kindness of Greater Cincinnati youth, MealsOn-Wheels clients served by Wesley Community Services had a brighter, happier Easter. The sixth-grade class at Our Lady of Victory in Delhi Township donated hand-crafted Easter magnets, and two local Girl Scout troops donated Girl Scout cookies and handmade Easter cards. The donated cookies, magnets, and cards, along with other Easter treats supplied by Wesley, were delivered to each MealsOn-Wheels client throughout the week before Easter. Stephen Smookler, executive director, expressed his gratitude for the time and effort these volunteers put into the donations: “It’s great that Wesley can serve as a bridge between generations, and our clients are thrilled to receive their special treats.” Lori Geeslin’s three sixthgrade religion classes, consisting of 67 students at Our Lady of Victory, together created 1,600 Easter magnets.
