Teens dancing in ‘Grease’ By Kurt Backscheider

West Price Hill — Kalie Kai-

mann and Aaron Marshall said audiences will enjoy the energy they see on stage when the Cincinnati Young People’s Theatre presents “Grease.” Kaimann, a Delhi Township teen who plays Sandy Olsen in the classic show, and Marshall, a Milford teen who portrays Danny Zuko, are among the roughly 80 teenagers who have been rehearsing this summer for the musical, which marks the Cincinnati Young People’s Theatre’s 31st annual production. Based at the Covedale Cen-

ter for the Performing Arts, the Cincinnati Young People’s Theatre (CYPT) helps young performers between the ages of 13 and 19 hone their theater skills. Kaimann, a Seton High School junior who is in her fourth year with the program, said she was introduced to CYPT by her voice teacher. “I fell in love with it,” she said. “It’s the best summer program I’ve ever been involved in.” Marshall said this is his first year with the organization, and it’s a dream come true to play the leading male role. “I’ve always wanted to be in

a production of ‘Grease,’” he said. “I just really love the theater, and I want to get into theater as a career.” Macy Martin, a Northern Kentucky native entering her sophomore year at the University of Cincinnati, took a few years off from the program but said she had to return for her final year. She said CYPT is a great place for like-minded teens to

grow as performers. “It’s an opportunity for young people to have a great experience and see how other young people work in the theater,” Martin said. “You see how others perform, you work together and learn from each other.” Because “Grease” features several dance numbers, director and CYPT founder Tim Perrino brought in an alumna of the program to choreograph the dance scenes. Molly O’Brien Peters, a Delhi Township native, said she performed in three CYPT shows when she was a teenSee DANCING, Page A2

Dreams come true at Delhi Police Dept. By Monica Boylson

Delhi Twp. — Mark Myers said he’s found his dream job as a police officer in the township. “This is an honor for me and a dream come true,” the 31year-old said. “Ever since I was a kid, I’ve always had an interest in police work.” The Delhi resident said he was “hooked” after riding with a Delhi policeman in 2008. “I thought it was the best thing in the world,” he said. “It was right after the ride-along that I signed up for the police academy.” Myers attended the Great Oaks Police Academy in 2008,

and has worked for the New Richmond and Mount Healthy police departments. He said he most enjoys getting out in the community to interact with people. “I haven’t found anything that I don’t like about the job,” he said. “I even like the paperwork.” Also joining Myers on the Delhi Township Police Department is 23-year-old Joe Goddard. The township resident said that he’s always aspired to be a police officer in Delhi. “I tried the Explorers program and ever since then it was what I wanted to do,” he See DREAMS, Page A2

Delhi Twp. — The township is outsourcing its information technology work. Delhi has contracted with EC Link, technology company in Northside, to provide supplemental work for the township. The service agreement between the township and EC Link shows the township will pay $780 per month to the company to provide service. Other services they have to perform outside of their agreed-upon contract are billed at $105 per hour, and Landrum services performed outside of normal business hours (8 a.m. to 5 p.m.) will be billed $157.50 per hour, or 1.5 times the standard pay, according to the master service agreement. If $780 of service isn’t provided each month, the township will be reimbursed, township administrator Pete Landrum said. Additionally, any hours not used during a given time period will be carried over to the next period. Landrum said that the township has been looking for ways to save money and one way was to eliminate one IT position to contract with EC Link. He said information services support technician Keith Carson was told several months ago the township was eliminating his position so he could look for other work. The board of trustees accepted Carson’s resignation, effective July 2, during a June 26 board meeting. “The general fund revenues have declined 70 percent from 2011 to projected 2014 revenues,” he said. Landrum said the township’s net savings by not filling the position and contracting with the technology company are about $66,000. Carson said he was prepared to resign. “I can’t say I didn’t really see it coming,” he said. “It was kind of move on or be unemployed.” “It is a great loss of IT knowledge and experience that Keith is leaving,” Landrum said. “But we wish him the best and much success to him and his family.” The 35-year-old has accepted a position with a local consulting agency. He has worked for Delhi Township for eight years. IT Director Patti Dignan will be the only township IT employee and will take on more responsibilities. Some duties have been assigned to other township employees. Landrum said EC Link will provide 18 hours of service per quarter.

make the choreography modern and relevant to today’s teens. “It’s been a lot of hard work, but so much fun,” she said. “And it’s worth it when you see your vision up on the stage and realized with the kids here. There is so much talent and I’m really excited.” Dancer Montana Hatfield, a Northern Kentucky resident entering her freshman year at Western Kentucky University, said this is her third year in CYPT and she couldn’t pass up the chance to be in “Grease.” “Who doesn’t love ‘Grease,’” she said. “I think when audiences see 80 very talented kids performing it on stage, they are going to be blown away.” Kaimann agreed with her fellow cast member. “The energy in this show is outstanding,” she said. “The audience has fun when the performers on stage are having fun, and we are definitely having fun.” The teens will present “Grease” from Friday, July 26, through Sunday, Aug. 4, at the Covedale theater, 4990 Glenway Ave. Tickets are $20 for gold seats, $14 for adults, $12 for senior citizens and college students and $10 for high school students and younger.

Rollin’ on the River Car Show cruises in 24th year By Monica Boylson

Sayler Park — Hot rods, souped-up coupes and classic cars will cruise to Fernbank Park for the Riverview-Delhi Kiwanis’ 24th annual Rollin’ on the River Charity Car Show from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday, July 28. More than 100 vehicles have already registered and car show co-chairman Al Duebber said he anticipates that there will be 400 to 500 vehicles par-

ticipating. “We’re just hoping for good weather,” he said. The show is free to the public and people can register their vehicles for $15 at the show. All cars, classes and types will be accepted this year, Duebber said, and cars will not be judged by class. “We’re going to have a panel of car enthusiasts from the Antique Automobile Club of America choose the top 50 cars and there will be the ‘Terrific Ten’ and five special awards,” he said. He said some of the awards include “The Real McCoy” which will be awarded to a vehicle that has completely original parts, “The Rembrandt” for the best paint job and

“The Street Sweeper” for the best low-rider car. There will also be Tshirts, food and drinks for sale. There will also be a split-the-pot, basket raffles and a major award of a trip for two to the Biltmore Estate in North Carolina with Brose Tours or $1,000 cash. Tickets are $5 each or three for $10. All proceeds will go to charity, Duebber said. He said the Kiwanis club donates money to the Women’s Connection, the Delhi Skirt Game, the Boy Scouts, the Girl Scouts, local schools and other charitable organizations. “Our goal is to raise about $20,000,” he said. “Since we’ve started the car show, we’ve raised more than $400,000 for

charity.” Event co-chairman Mark Forrester said he enjoys seeing the more than 5,000 people who attend the event each year. “It always amazes me each year how people are willing to open their wallets for a charity event,” he said. “All the money we make will stay within the Delhi, Sayler Park, Sedamsville areas. It’s neighbors helping neighbors.” Fernbank Park is located at 50 Thornton Ave. in Sayler Park. Parking is free and there will be a shuttle service to the show. For more information about the show or to register, visit www.rollin or call Duebber at 6088128.


Police Department his “career spot.” “There’s a wall of badges out there of all the officers who have retired,” he said of a case of badges in the vestibule of the police station. “I want my badge to be up there. This is the perfect job for me.” Delhi Police Chief Jim Howarth said he is happy the two have joined the police force. “Both officers will be great assets to the department,” he said. “They are passionate about police work and the department and the citizens of Delhi will benefit from them.”

Cheviot resident has two novels published By Kurt Backscheider

Cheviot — Scott Kramer said he’s dreamed of being a writer for as long as he can remember. “I started writing when I was in the sixth-grade,” he said. “I’ve always wanted to write.” His passion for the craft likely stems from his childhood visits to his grandparents’ home. Kramer said he used to watch his grandfather peck away on his typewriter, and he loved hearing the clack of the keys and the zip of the carriage starting a new line. The typewriter has been replaced by the computer, but his passion for writing remains. And Kramer’s dream of becoming a writer has come true. The Cheviot resident, who grew up in Price Hill and graduated from Elder High School, has authored two novels that have been published by Turquoise Morning Press. He has a third book due out this September. “Taking the Plunge,” a mystery novel set in Cincinnati was released last fall, and “Kara,” a novel geared for young adults, was published this spring. “It was kind of cool to see my work in print,” Kramer said. “When the first novel came out, the publisher sent a package of books to my house. It was an awe moment, opening the

package and seeing my name there on the cover.” He said “Taking the Plunge” tells the story of Jane Monterrey, an inexperienced Cincinnati private eye tasked with solving the mysterious death of a well-known millionaire, who plunged to his demise outside her office window. “The thing I think Cincinnatians like about it is the fact they can walk in the lead character’s footsteps,” Kramer said. “She visits places like Terry’s Turf Club and Game Time Sports Bar in Cheviot.” The book he has coming out this fall is titled “Horsing Around.” It’s the second book in a planned three-part Jane Monterrey mystery series and is also set in Cincinnati, he said. Kramer, a sixth-grade language arts and reading teacher at Our Lady of Grace School in Colerain Township, said “Kara” is dedicated to his students and could be compared to novels like “The Chronicles of Narnia” or “The Lord of the Rings.” When a king attacks the 12-year-old title character’s home and captures her father, he said she escapes to a place called the Territories, where humans are unknown and elves, orcs and dwarves roam the land. She enlists the help of her new friends to get back to the human land and rescue her father. “My students have

been very excited about it,” he said. “They loved to critique it and offer me feedback on it while I was writing it, and they also served as inspiration for it.” With the writing bug firmly planted in him, he plans to continue penning more novels. “I enjoy the creative process,” Kramer said. “I’m always learning the story as I write it, the characters take on a life of their own.” Both his novels are available in paperback and e-book formats at They are also sold at Joseph-Beth Booksellers in the Rookwood Pavilion and the Broadhope Art Collective in Cheviot.

Though field dimensions haven’t changed and the game still involves nine players, the jump to Division I baseball was a difficult one for Northern Kentucky University. After a 36-22 record in 2012, the Norse were a frustrating 847 in their first year in the Atlantic Sun. To remedy that, coach Todd Asalon has broadened his horizons in recruiting. Because they were not Division I in the past, NKU often landed transfers who didn’t have to sit out. Now, like all DI institutions, a transfer must sit a year. Because of the level of play and new restrictions, the Norse coaching staff has done some recent globe-trotting. “We signed eight Canadians this year, we’re trying to go a little international to change things up,” Asalon said. “We’re also going out to the west coast with a couple kids out of the Colorado area. We went with some junior college kids that are a little bit bigger, stronger and faster.” As a result, NKU will be on the young side next year with their only seniors being Brett Cisper from Moeller and Zac

pen.” After coaching Post 199 from 1995-2004, Scott is back after stepping away to coach his son’s team for eight years. While he is happy with the way the team was managed while he was gone, he is hoping to revive Legion baseball on the West Side of Cincinnati. “We are a West-Side team and we are trying to get back to

where we used to be,” he said. “We want to keep the West-Side kids on the West Side and I think this year is helping us a lot.” If Post 199 can make it out of the regional tournament, they will advance to the American Legion State Tournament in hopes of eventually bringing home Cincinnati’s 15th National Championship.

NKU looking for right Division I combination By Scott Springer


Post 199 looks for success

CINCINNATI — As another year of the storied American Legion Baseball season comes to a close, Post 199 is looking to add to the city’s historical title totals. The team is comprised of all West-Side athletes from the likes of Elder, Oak Hills, Western Hills and St. Xavier, and led by coach Tom Scott and assistant coach Steve Douglas. Post 199 sits at 17-11 on the season after winning two games in pool play at the Buckeye Elite Tournament July 12 advancing them to bracket play. Scott believe the BET is a great way to get his team ready for the American Legion Regional Tournament, which starts July 18 in Chillicothe. “Tournaments like (the Buckeye Elite) are so well scouted,” Scott said from Columbus. “We want to get our kids exposed and we want to play well and win. I think we are doing a great job of that.” Elder grad Jimmy White – who will play for Sinclair Community College next season - is pacing Scott’s team offensively. Before the BET White was hitting .390 with three home runs. “He’s playing really good ball right now,” Scott said. “He’s playing centerfield for us and hitting fourth. He’s doing really well.” Oak Hills senior-to-be Ben Laumann has moved over to shortstop from second base where he played for the Highlanders last season and has impressed Scott thus far. “Ben’s a really good shortstop,” the coach said. “He’s hitting .380 and has had a good summer all around.” The Highlanders are well represented when it comes to Post 199’s pitching staff. Highlanders Jake Seaman, Jayson Essell and Jordan Huegel have teamed with West High’s Jimmy Rodriguez and Elder’s Mitchell Asman to form what could be the team’s strongest asset.


Asman from Elder. Those two are the veterans of the local crew that Asalon would still like to attract. What he has to offer is a favorable location where friends and family can watch college games without considerable travel expense. “If we can get the local kid, we’d love to have them,” Asalon said. “You can get a chance to come in here and play right away and the travel is good. You get to go to Florida quite a few times and we go to California twice.” Joining Cisper and Asman on the list of NKU locals is infielder Caleb Lonkard of Ryle, pitcher Bela Perler of Anderson, Alex Bolia and Nick Beard of Elder, pitcher Drew Campbell of La Salle, Madeira catcher Cody Kuzniczci and Moeller outfielder Ryan LeFevers. Asalon likes tournamenttested Greater Catholic League players and also has another player with considerable postseason experience in Kuzniczci. “He had a great year for us,” Asalon said. “He led us in doubles. We asked him to do a lot. He caught a lot and we batted him in the cleanup spot. We’re expecting Cody to come in and have a really good year for us.” Many of the locals took their

lumps in the southern-based Atlantic Sun playing on NKU’s new artificial turf infield. “With that said, we have 17 Asalon new kids,” Asalon said. “We’re going to have great competition and we’ll let them fight it out in the fall. The best man wins and gets to play in spring.” Campbell Battling the likes of Ohio State, Louisville, Kentucky, Cincinnati, Xavier and Miami for recruits, NKU offers a good conference and possibly a quicker path to the line-up. “The good part is we’re in the Atlantic Sun; the bad part is we’re in the Atlantic Sun,” Asalon said. “They had two teams go to the regionals this year. They’re in Florida and the Atlanta area. There’s better weather, the facilities are nicer and they take it serious.” To step up to the challenge, Asalon has a non-conference schedule that includes some early warm-weather trips to Troy (Alabama) and the Uni-

PRICE HILL — More than 30 Major League Baseball scouts attended the Great Lakes Summer Collegiate League Prospects Showcase July 10 at Western Hills High Schools Arch McCartney Stadium. More than 70 MLB draft-eligible GLSCL players went through various drills showcasing their skills as part of what was supposed to be a preview to the all-star game, but heavy rains cancelled the game. Despite the downpour, the prospects impressed as the pitchers threw bullpen sessions, outfielders showcased their arm strength, infielders took groundballs at shortstop and catchers let loose from behind the plate. “That is basically how Major League Baseball wants to run their scouting camps so that is how we always run ours,” Cincinnati Steam Owner and CEO Bill O’Conner said. “They want to see the shortstops get in the hole and make that throw, they want to see right fielders throw to third base and they put (radar) guns and tell the pitchers specific pitches to throw.” The Steam has produced 3035 players who have gone on to play professional baseball. Nate Jones, Josh Harrison and Adam Eaton have gone on to play at the highest level. Each GLSCL team can bring three prospects to the camp, in addition to their all-star selections. Selby Chidemo (Elder), Matt Williams (CHCA), Cody Kuzniczci (Madeira), Justin Glass, Michael Hanzlik, Matt Jefferson, Eric Martin (Turpin) and Rob Sunderman (Moeller) of the Steam, along with Mike Gastrich (Milford), Brad Macciochi (Moeller) and Ethan McAlpine (Moeller) of the Hamilton Joes took part in the showcase. Gastrich, Kuzniczci, Macciochi, McAlpine, Sunderman and Williams were all named allstars. After being selected out of five teams to host the all-star game and putting in months of work prepping for the game, the prospects showcase provided O’Conner some relief after Mother Nature wiped out the game. “The scouts were disappointed they didn’t get to see the game and that we didn’t go through (batting practice), but generally speaking we got all the other skill sessions in for the showcase,” the owner said. “ The GLSCL All-Star Game will not be rescheduled.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Thanks for support

Sometimes the worst of times bring out the best in people. The people of St. William Parish have lived up to this saying the last few weeks in the wake of the graffiti sprayed on the church and school buildings the evening of June 15. The shock and anger over this incident was replaced by amazement at the number of people who offered assistance, prayers and kind words. We would like to thank everyone who offered their help, sympathy and prayers. It was heartwarming to see the amount of support we received and the number of concerned citizens who asked how they could help. Thanks to our own outstanding maintenance staff, the graffiti has been completely removed from the buildings, and thanks to Capt. Russ Neville and the efforts of the Cincinnati Police Department, the suspects were arrested. This incident, although disturbing, served to remind us all of the

Demand council follow prudent fiscal control Another example of city council working against the best interests of the city. On May 1, Cincinnati City Council passed an ordinance, only hours after it was introduced, that places onerous apprenticeship labor requirements on construction firms. This action will prevent most area companies from being able to bid on construction projects for the Metropolitan Sewer District (MSD), Cincinnati Storm Water and Greater Cincinnati Water Works (GCWW). The ordinance could eliminate as much as 70 percent of the competition from performing work on approximately $3 billion dollars of EPA-mandated construction over the next 10 years. When competition is drastically reduced by the elimination of a majority of contract bidders, costs naturally increase. Some contractors estimate that the cost of the MSD program could be increased by as much as $1.3 billion due to this ordinance.

These costs will, of course, be shouldered by Hamilton County water and sewer ratepayers (the public) Erik Nebergall who will see COMMUNITY PRESS their bills skyrocket. GUEST COLUMNIST Furthermore, many smaller local businesses, and certainly minorityowned firms, will miss out on the city’s massive MSD “spend” which, in addition to helping to control the project’s costs, would also help keep these dollars local, benefiting local workers, their families and the local businesses they shop in, as well as significantly boost the city’s tax income. If this is not bad enough, we now learn that several members of council wish to extend this apprenticeship requirement to all city projects, raising the city’s costs further during a time when the city is already operating in the red.

The restricted labor contracting ordinance follows on the heels of the contentious Cincinnati Streetcar project, unfunded employee pensions, threatened cuts to police and fire and a costly trash pick-up automation program. People vote their pocketbook and respond with their feet. In turn, Cincinnati will lose many more of its taxpayers to the suburbs where their tax dollars are spent more responsibly. Cincinnati stands at a crucial turning point that demands prudent fiscal control by and accountability from our elected officials. As residents with a stake in the future of this city, it’s time we demand a City Council that places fiduciary responsibility above personal and political gain. Erik Nebergall lives in College Hill and is chairman of the newly formed Save Cincinnati, a group of concerned citizens working together to restore common sense and transparency in our city government.

Good vacations start with good planning It is finally here summer vacation, the opportunity to recharge your batteries, reconnect with family and have some fun. Months of planning are about to pay off for a trip that will hopefully keep you refreshed throughout the season. Regardless of what you have planned this summer, it is important for you to remember to pay attention to the not-so-fun aspects of your summer events. Here are some tips to help keep troubles at bay before, during and after your time away: Before leaving town: • Thoroughly research your destination and associated costs. Know the price ranges of the restaurants you want to visit and the activities you want to pursue, and understand the terms of your rental or hotel booking. • Set a budget based on your research. Put aside money each week toward your goal and start early. • Look for deals. Several organizations offer membership discounts, and you may find additional savings through your credit card, the area’s visitors bureau, attraction websites and travel sites. • Try to be flexible on dates. It can make a big difference in the cost of lodging and flights.

• Notify trusted neighbors that you’ll be away and when you expect to return. Let Ian Mitchell them know if COMMUNITY PRESS you will have GUEST COLUMNIST a house sitter. • Place a hold on your mail and newspaper deliveries or ask a friend or neighbor to pick them up. You also may want to have your yard maintained. A pile of newspapers and an overgrown yard can signal an empty house. • Simulate a “lived-in” appearance by using timers for turn lights and a radio or TV during expected hours. • Notify your credit card providers of your travel plans: When you’re leaving, where you’re going and when you’ll return. This helps companies identify fraudulent charges if your card is used in an area you’re not visiting. • Do not share your travel plans on social networking sites. During your trip: • Make lunch, rather than dinner, your big meal out. Prices are lower and often the menu is the same. • Take advantage of smartphone apps that can help find the best prices for gas and

other savings. • Use mobile banking apps to monitor accounts and track spending so you don’t have surprises when statements arrive. Ice cream, souvenirs and drink tabs add up fast. • Never carry large amounts of cash; use traveler’s checks or credit cards. • Take only your driver’s license/official ID and two credit cards: One to carry, another to lock in a safe in case your wallet is stolen. • Don’t access financial data or personal information on public computers or public Wi-Fi networks. Be cautious when accessing a hotel room Internet connection. • If you use an ATM, choose one inside a bank. Well-lit lobbies with security cameras, bank employees and customers provide more security for you and for the ATM, meaning it is less likely to be a tampering target. When you return: • Let friends and family know you’re home. • Get your mail. Open it and electronic mail promptly to address bills or other urgent matters. • Continue to monitor your accounts. Check statements to make sure nothing is out of place.

Blue ribbon muffins help usher in blueberry season When I checked my mail and calls this week, most of them centered on Cyndi Mitchell’s porcupine meatballs. I had no idea this recipe was such a beloved one. It was actually a new one to me. Julia M., who is “84plus,” said her mom made these for her and her five siblings many times. “Her recipe was a little different,” Julia said. Hers has ground beef, minced Rita onion, Heikenfeld baking RITA’S KITCHEN powder, milk and uncooked regular rice along with salt and pepper. She covers hers with tomato soup and bakes them in the oven. Ann Falci and her girls Emma and Marianne were delighted to see the recipe. “An often requested meal. We serve it on top of rice with extra cans of soup as ‘gravy’ and fresh parsley on top.” I love when recipes evoke such a response and wonderful memories – that’s what cooking is all about. And blueberry season is here. We’ll be picking at Rouster’s in Milford. Check out my blog for Rouster’s blueberry cobbler with a cookie crust.

Blue ribbon blueberry muffins

Blueberry muffins are a popular fair entry.

2 cups packed coarsely grated zucchini, unpeeled 1 small onion, finely chopped 1 cup Italian breadcrumbs 1 tablespoon mayonnaise 2-3 teaspoons Old Bay seasoning 1 large egg, beaten lightly Salt and pepper to taste

Rita adapted her blueberry muffin recipe from blue ribbon award winner.THANKS TO RITA

Drain zucchini and onion in a colander a bit to let some of the liquid drain out. Combine all ingredients. The texture can be adjusted – if it’s too wet, add more crumbs. Heat oil in skillet. Form mixture into patties and sauté over medium high heat until

golden brown, about 2 minutes per side. Makes four big or six medium cakes.

Can you help?

7Up Cake for reader Tom W., who lost his recipe from the Enquirer Sundayfood section way back about 10-15 years ago. “Any offer is appreciated,” he said.

Judging at the local and state level has given me good criteria for the perfect blueberry muffin. I’m sharing my tips for a blue ribbon-winning muffin on my blog. Most importantly, though, don’t over mix. The batter should be lumpy. And always toss fruit or nuts with flour mixture to keep them from sinking. If you don’t have butter flavoring, which is in with extracts at the store, just up the vanilla to 2 teaspoons. This is adapted from a blue ribbon recipe winner who asked to remain anonymous. ⁄2 stick unsalted butter, room temperature 1 cup sugar 2 large eggs, room temperature 3 ⁄4 teaspoon butter flavoring extract 11⁄2 teaspoons vanilla extract 2 teaspoons baking powder Several dashes salt 1

2 cups all-purpose flour (whisk before measuring to lighten up and then spoon into measuring cup, level off with knife) 2 heaping cups fresh blueberries or equivalent frozen, not thawed, no sugar added, tossed with flour used in recipe 1 ⁄2 cup whole milk

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray muffin cups or line with baking cups. Beat butter and sugar until fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, beating after each addition. Blend in extracts, baking powder and salt. Very gently, and by hand, fold in flour and blueberry mixture. Stir in milk. Spoon about 2⁄3 cup batter into muffin cups (enough to leave room for rising). Bake 22-25 minutes or until golden brown and a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Don’t over bake. Yield: 18

or so regular muffins.

St. John’s ~ Dover

Tips from Rita’s kitchen


Sprinkle on before baking: Plain sugar topping or 2 tablespoons sugar mixed with 1⁄2 teaspoon cinnamon and 1⁄2 teaspoon nutmeg. How to make storebought blueberry muffin mix taste like homemade: Add some fresh or frozen blueberries, unthawed (a scant cup) and 2 teaspoons vanilla.

Old Bay seasoning makes these taste a bit like crab cakes, even though there’s no crab in here. A fellow food writer shared this recipe a few years ago. “One of my most requested,” she said. A good way to use up what you know will be an abundance of zucchini!

Beware of offers of mortgage modification assistance A woman seeking to modify her home mortgage ends up paying a company that claims it can help her. But now, after some investigation, she said she feels deceived and wants her money back. Deborah Spencer, of Harrison, called her lender recently about

getting her home mortgage modified. But before it could be worked out she went on an outof-state vacation with her family. “We were on vacation and I got ill. I had spoken with my bank about trying to modify my loan on my house because I ended up on Social Security

disability,” Spencer said. Then, while still in the hospital, she got a call on her cell phone from a law firm that said it would help with her loan modification. It faxed documents for her to sign while she was still on medication and still in the hospital. It actually faxed the papers


directly to the hospital where she was recovering. “I was on medication and they were very insistent. They called constantly saying, ‘Oh, we can send everything right over and get started right away,’” she said. The firm also asked her for money. “They wanted me to give them $2,900 for a retainer. They said, ‘Well, in good faith, just give us $1,450 now,’” Spencer said. Spencer sent the money using her debit card. When she returned home she called her mortgage company representative who told her he never heard of that law firm and questioned the whole thing. The contract Spencer re-

ceived from the company said she had five days in which to cancel and she tried Howard to do that Ain immediHEY HOWARD! ately, but without any success. “The law firm operator wouldn’t give me his name, just said it was Randy, and pretty much said, ‘Well, we have your money, you’re not going to get your money back,’” she said. But what about the contract which says she has five days in which to cancel? “They said it didn’t matter,” she said. I called but couldn’t

get any answers from that law firm so told Spencer to file a complaint with the Ohio Attorney General. She did, and now the company has contacted her promising to return her money because she never used the retainer. Spencer is going to represent herself in dealing with her bank for that mortgage modification. She wants to warn everyone to be careful if you get such an offer of assistance from people who claim to be with a law firm. Howard Ain answers consumer complaints weekdays on WKRC-TV Local 12.

Last fall when Hurricane Sandy struck the East Coast, students at the College of Mount St. Joseph collected supplies to help storm victims. Helping others in time of need is part of everyday life at the Mount. It’s also part of the curriculum. The Service Learning program, coordinated by Kristen Hedgebeth, integrates classroom learning with helping the community. The program is far more than short-term volunteering. It’s learning about society’s problems and reflecting on these issues. The student develops the tools within to meet these challenges. Through service learning Mount students are taking on the toughest is-

sues facing the city. This summer two criminology/ sociology majors are helping with the Cincinnati Initiative to Reduce Violence. This is a combination of police, social service agencies and the community coming together with a common goal: “the violence must stop.” At Our Daily Bread in Over-The-Rhine, Mount students have served food to the homeless and poor. One student helped with the charity’s Kid’s Club, which provides afternoon snacks to neighborhood children as well as access to computers, books and art. Many of the service learning projects involve education students tutor-

ing and mentoring children in the community. The experience is truly service learning for, as Hedgebeth points out, the students discover far more than they expected. Mount students learn more about the lives of the children they are helping. They learn about the hunger and poverty that impact a child’s ability to learn and grow. According to Feeding America over 20 percent of children in Hamilton County suffer from hunger. It’s one thing seeing these numbers, but then to witness that hunger quite another. Mount students realize more help is needed for the children, but not always easy to obtain.
