Keeping cool as temperatures soared, Henry Topp, 3, left, and Joseph Davis, 3, both of Delhi Township, share one of the water sprays at the Delhi Township Park. Joseph’s grandmother Lily Davis of Delhi Township echoed those sentiments. “We’ve been here several days this week just to let him play in the water and keep cool with this weather,” Davis said.

Delhi Township trustees and two separate bargaining units for township police are about to sign a new two-year contract that provides for no wage increases. Township Administrator Gary Schroeder said the new contract is basically the same as the threeyear pact that expires in October. He said the last raises for either patrol officers or the corporals and sergeants were in 2008. The beginning salary will remain $24.40 an hour for officers, $32.01 an hour for corporals and $34.31 an hour for sergeants. Police Chief James Howarth

The plan “stabilizes premiums paid by the employer and employee to some degree, but raises the financial responsibly of health care to the consumer.”

Bill Zoz Delhit township fire chief

declined to comment on the new contract until it was officially finalized by both sides. Along with the police department, all township employees will have new health insurance coverage starting Aug. 1. The new policy with Anthem will mean employees will be pay-

ing higher deductibles. The new health care plan is what is known as a health savings account. Fire Chief Bill Zoz said, the plan “stabilizes premiums paid by the employer and employee to some degree, but raises the financial responsibly of health care to the consumer.” He said the township will pay $2,000 for a family account and $1,000 for a single account. The employee is responsible for the entire $5,000 deductible per year cost. Employees had been paying $4,000 per year, per family. Schroeder said Anthem came in with the lowest insurance bid.

Teen earns Eagle Scout status By Heidi Fallon

“Scouting gave me the ability to try new things that I probably wouldn’t have done on my own.”

hfallon@communitypress.com

For the first summer in a very long time, Alexander Lewis isn’t packing for Boy Scout camp. Lewis, 18, instead is preparing for his Eagle Scout Court of Honor. The recent St. Xavier High School graduate is a member of Troop 909 at Our Lady of Victory. It was the parish that benefited from Lewis’ Eagle project. The Delhi Township teen built a new nativity scene shelter and raised funds to purchase new figures. Lewis said his efforts will make it easier to assemble the scene. “My goal was that the kids who help put the nativity scene up would be able to do it themselves instead of standing by and watching their parents do it,” Lewis said. Lewis said he aimed for Eagle status after becoming involved in scouting at an early age. His brother, Elias, earned scouting’s highest rank two years

His project was building a nativity scene for the Our Lady of Victory parish. ago, giving him added incentive. “I decided, since being in Boy Scouts for so long, that I wanted to strive to go all the way and I dedicated myself to getting to Eagle,” he said. Along the way, Lewis said he

never missed the summer camps and amassed 39 merit badges. “Scouting gave me the ability to try new things that I probably wouldn’t have done on my own,” he said. He picked up skills and made new friends, and said he’s enjoyed his time as a scout. Lewis leaves his troop behind as he sets off for Miami University this fall to major in math and education with the goal of becoming a high school math teacher. He is the son of Ron and Teresa Lewis. His honor court ceremonies were scheduled for July 14. For more about your community, visit www.cincinnati.com/delhitownship.

Delhi Township trustees agree police and fire levies are inevitable, but disagree on when to ask voters for more money. With an Aug. 10 deadline to make it on the November ballot, trustees took the first step toward potential levies by asking the Hamilton County Auditor’s Office for current property tax figures. “This does not encumber us to do anything, but will give us the figures we need to consider all our options,” Trustee Al Duebber said. Trustees are asking how much 1.5-, 1.75- and 2-mill levies would generate for each department. Township Administrator Gary Schroeder said a 1.5-mill for the fire department and a 2-mill levy for the police department would last an estimated five years, based on current figures. Five years is how long the township promised fire and police levies would last when voters approved the last two levies in 2005. Until the auditor’s certification, Schroeder said, township officials and the Financial Advisory Board are only estimating at possible levy requests and revenues. Schroeder did estimate that a 1.5-mill levy would cost the owner of a home with a $100,000 market value an additional $45 a year. The same homeowner would pay $53 more with a 1.75 levy and $60 more with a 2-mill levy, based on Schroeder’s calculations. While each of the department is solvent through this year, financial estimates are that the police department will face a deficit in 2013 and the fire department a deficit a year later. The debate at the trustees’ July 13 meeting was when to go on the ballot. “It’s not a question of if, but when,” said Trustee Jerry Luebbers. Luebbers disagrees with Duebber on the “when.” Luebbers said he wants to postpone levies until 2012 and make sure all possible budget cuts are made before going to voters. Duebber disagrees, saying he believes the township might be better served by going on this year’s ballot. Both did agree with Trustee Mike Davis that a community forum to allow residents to give their input and get information is critical before making any levy decision. No date was set for a forum . Marijane Klug, one of the seven members of the township’s Financial Advisory Board, told trustees she did not support that board’s recommendation for levies this year. She said the township “needs to do budget reductions in both departments” before going to residents.

Oak Hills school district awarded $600,000 innovation grant The Oak Hills Local School District will use a $600,000 Race to the Top Innovation Grant to encourage higher level thinking skills and real-life global connections at Oak Hills High School. The district will join the Asia Society’s International Studies School Network (ISSN) Innovative Program with funding from the grant. The international studies school network is a national network of public schools that are achieving success in attaining their core mission: to develop college-ready, globally competent high school graduates. Oak Hills Superintendent Todd Yohey said the program has a strong alignment with Oak Hills High School’s mission, which

was a key factor in the district’s decision to apply. “The curriculum, professional development, framework and tools associated with ISSN represent a continuation of the journey and the profound work that our district and Oak Hills High School started two to three years ago,” Yohey said. “Our administrative and teacher leaders see this as a vehicle for deeply embedding skills, content and values associated with global competence in our curriculum.” He said membership in the network provides a means to expand, strengthen and improve the international studies program, as well as the three other programs of study offered at Oak Hills – STEM (Science,

Technology, Engineering and Math), integrated studies and creative and performing arts. This customized learning process was started in the 20102011 school year. The Academic Improvement Model for the high school is building around a support system designed to strengthen student skills in four areas of college readiness: • Contextual skills, and awareness or college knowledge: how to apply to colleges, the application process, financial understanding. • Key content: mastery of important content in English, science, math, social studies and fine arts. • Key cognitive strategies: critical thinking skills,

Retirement bound

analysis, evaluation, synthesis, problem solving skills. • Academic behaviors: writing and study skills, and time management. Opportunities are also available to students across all schools and academic disciplines in world languages and technology and e-learning access. Teachers across the district collaborate and participate in professional development in and out of the school day. The goal is to construct a pipeline of K-12 learning that leads to college and

career readiness for all students. “For our students to succeed they must be productive workers and informed citizens,” Yohey said. “Implementing this innovative program and joining

Asia Society’s ISSN will enable us to build a strong system of learning that results in all of our students graduating with the necessary knowledge, abilities and opportunities to thrive in a global society.”

Family-run Delhi business helps by adopting class By Jason Hoffman jhoffman312@communitypress.com

Just off Delhi Pike, a business is not only doing big things in the world of medical consulting, but is making a difference in the community. The Consult Inc. (TCI), is a family-run firm that handles medical billing in Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana as well as North Carolina and Michigan. Founded in 1988 by Michael O’Connor, TCI has grown from its original three employees to 115 today. Jeff Rinear, the sonin-law of O’Connor who died in 2000, is now the president of TCI.

But Rinear is not only concerned with the company’s business, he and his wife Kelley are also devoted to helping out the community as much as possible. Rinear has been running the summer basketball league at Our Lady of Lourdes parish for 11 years and is also involved with the Anderson Ferry Food Pantry as well as the Delshire Caring and Sharing program to help underprivileged children in the Delhi area. He has also rallied his company’s support for the Adopt-A-Class charity, which gives groups or companies the opportunity to adopt an entire grade of stu-

dents from local schools that have mostly underprivileged students. TCI has adopted the third grade at Oyler Elementary School in Price Hill. “The program started out as something we did around the holidays, but we have been able to grow it into a year-long relationship between everyone at our company and the children at Oyler,” Rinear said. TCI was one of the founding companies in the Adopt-A-Class program eight years ago. Bill Burwinkle, founder and executive director of Adopt-A-Class, said that participation in the program is not only beneficial for the students, but also for companies like TCI. “Ninety percent of our 203 participating groups say that they have noticed an improvement in company morale,” Burwinkle said. Burwinkle also points out that every company that participates in the program would recommend it to other businesses. “The program is great for the kids to see that someone outside their usual world is showing interest in their lives,” Burwinkle said.

The statistics of the school outline the need for the program. “Sixty-five percent of the students live in single-parent households, 21 percent are transient students who change schools during the year and 26 percent of the students have special needs requirements in the classroom,” Burwinkle said. The benefit to the students, however, is the impressive statistic. “Teachers have said that 95 percent of the students improve their social skills, 90 percent improve in writing through the pen-pal program and 70 percent show an improvement in attendance,” Burwinkle said. “It gives the kids something to look forward to when they come to school.” Burwinkle said that the program has now grown to 20 local schools and four schools in Portland, Ore. TCI also collects money yearround through casual Fridays and other fundraising events for the annual Christmas party they throw for the Oyler students. Seventy-eight percent of TCI’s employees are from the Westside, something Rinear said makes him very proud.

Web cam documents work at Mercy You can follow progress on the construction of the new Mercy Hospital West in Monfort Heights without getting dirty visiting the construction site – you don’t even need to leave your home. A new web cam has been installed at the site of the new hospital on North Bend Road near I-74 in Green Township. The web address is: http://earthcam.com/clients /mercywest/. After working to clear the site during the spring and coping with the heavy rainfall this year, construction of the site is under way and the new web cam is there to document the progress with views that are updated every 15 minutes. The web cam also allows the user to zoom in and adjust the view to different angles. “This is a great feature that allows everyone in the community to see how construction is progressing and how the new hospital will look as it begins coming out of the ground,” said Patrick Kowalski, chief operating officer for the Mercy West Market, who is overseeing the construction project.

A construction crane will be going up in the next few weeks as work on the foundation of the hospital begins in early August. When it’s complete in 2013, the 250-bed hospital will feature state-of-the-art design for advanced care and comfort, all private rooms, and expanded medical capabilities for the West Side – including a heart center with an open heart surgery program and a family birth center. As Mercy continues work on Mercy West, project leaders are working to ensure there is as little disruption to the surrounding neighborhoods as possible. While there will be noise associated with the work, as well as large equipment and building supplies moving to and from the site, Mercy is pledging to do as much as possible to keep all aspects of construction from interfering with residents and business owners throughout the area. Green Township and Mercy will also help improve traffic flow by expanding North Bend Road to four lanes from Boomer to Kleeman prior to the opening of the new hospital.

Summer success has Elder golf optimistic By Ben Walpole bwalpole@communitypress.com

If this summer is any indication, autumn will be kind to the Elder High School golf team. Several Panthers, led by seniors Daniel Schwarz and Tyler Smith, are building quite the resume of summer golf achievements. “I’ve never had so many golfers playing at such a high level at the same time,” said Elder head golf coach Mike Trimpe, who has been with the program for more than 20 years. “I’ve had one here, one there, but I’ve never had so many at the same time.” Schwarz won the Ohio Junior Championship Tournament June 30 in Ravenna, Ohio. He also finished second in the U.S. Junior Amateur Tournament qualifier in Columbus, earning a berth in the national tournament, scheduled for July 18-21 in Seattle. “The way I’m playing right now, my best is good enough to play with anyone,” Schwarz said. “Nothing but confidence right now. And if I do have a bad hole, I know I can make birdies. I know birdies are out there for me.” Schwarz also serves as the Elder baseball team’s catcher and leadoff hitter, so he hasn’t always

BRIEFLY New coach

Derrick Jackson was recently named the new Thomas More College head men’s and women’s cross country coach. Jackson comes from Oak Hills High School, where he was the assistant cross country coach for three seasons. “We are extremely delighted that Coach Jackson has accepted the head cross country coaching position,” Thomas More College Athletic Director Terry Connor said. “We believe that he will build the cross country program into one of the best in the conference and region academically and athletically.” Said Jackson, “I’m excited about the opportunity to coach at the collegiate level and look forward to bringing in some of the top studentathletes from the tristate to make Thomas More’s cross country program one of the top in the region.” Jackson ran cross country and track and field at Wilmington College where he was named All-Ohio Athletic Conference (OAC) and All-Great Lakes Region. He also served in the Ohio Army National Guard from 2000-2007, where he was deployed to Iraq twice and earned numerous military awards.

Birkofer goes to Morehead

Jeff Birkofer, a 2009 graduate of Oak Hills High School, graduated with honors from Columbia State Community College in Columbia, Tenn., where he played baseball with the Chargers. This fall, Jeff will continue his education and baseball career at Division I Morehead State University, in Morehead, Ky. Jeff is playing summer baseball in the Arizona Collegiate Wood bat league with the Sidewinders. The team has a record of 17-4. Jeff is batting .333 with five doubles, one triple and eight RBI. He is the son of Angie and Jeff Birkofer.

been able to devote all of his summers to golf. “This is the first time I’ve been able to come out of the gates and find my swing, find my game,” Schwarz said. “This is definitely the best I’ve played in my life. It’s a lot of fun. So I’m just trying to enjoy it.” Smith, meanwhile, won a Greater Cincinnati Golf Associa-

tion junior tour event this summer in Fairfield by shooting a careerbest 66. He also won the Ohio Golf Course Owners Association Junior tournament in Lexington, Ohio, meaning he will lead a team of 10 Ohio golfers in August against a team of 10 Pennsylvania golfers in a Ryder Cup competition. “I’ve been putting really well,” Smith said. “My short game’s really on.” Elder has struggled to beat St. Xavier and Moeller in the Greater Catholic League recently, prompting Trimpe’s mantra: “We’re third in the GCL until proven otherwise.” But there’s no doubt the summer has bred optimism. “It’s extremely important because the bigger tournaments that they’re playing in, the more pressure-packed tournaments they’re playing in, the better they can handle pressure when they play for the school in the fall,” Trimpe said. “They’re traveling all around the country. When they get to a high-school match, it’s not gonna feel like pressure at all.” It’s not just Schwarz and Smith either. The team likely will feature eight seniors this fall, and that’s not even mentioning Elder’s only returning state qualifier, junior

THANKS TO MIKE TRIMPE

Elder High School’s Daniel Schwarz holds the trophy after winning the Ohio Junior Championship Tournament this summer in Ravenna, Ohio. Brennen Walsh. Walsh, Smith and Schwarz joined teammates Cory Dulle and Scott Alder played in the AJGA Tournament in Ashland, Ky., this summer. Walsh and Josh Rinear each qualified for match play in the Men’s Metropolitan tourney. Connor Moulden, who recently transferred back to Elder after a year in Florida, won a GCGA event in Western Hills in early July. The competition within the team itself could often be hotter than the battles against the opposition – “Thank God they’re

friends,” said Trimpe, only halfjoking. “This group of seniors has grown up together and pushed each other for years and years. They’re just phenomenal, some of the stuff they’ve been doing,” Trimpe said. “I’m not surprised by these guys. They’re very dedicated to the game.” Elder’s season begins Aug. 11 with a run of three tournaments in five days. For more coverage, visit Cincinnati.com/blogs/presspreps

Villing named Seton’s new softball coach Seton High School announced that Jay Villing will serve as the varsity softball coach beginning in the 2011-2012 school year. “I think we will accomplish a lot this year,” Villing said. “I want to see us come together as a team, play with enthusiasm and confidence, and enjoy the experience of being a varsity softball player.” Villing served as an assistant varsity softball coach for two years at Seton and has served as head junior varsity coach for four years.

“I am excited to watch this program develop under Jay’s leadership,” Athletic Villing Director Janie Shaffer said. “He has great vision for the future of Seton softball and I’m thrilled that he will be taking over the program.” Villing is a social studies teacher at Seton High School and looks forward to beginning his 11th year of teaching Seton Saints.

Last week’s question:

Which TV commercial really annoys you? Why? “Right now the commercial that erks me is the anti-Sherrod Brown rag. Please, Karl Rove, keep your silly politics and big, big money out of Ohio and let our elected senator legislate without dealing with unsubstantiated statements that are inciteful.” M.M. “The one where the father is changing his son’s diaper and the little boy is spraying all over the room like a fire hose. It was cute the first year it ran … but move on. It was only worth a few chuckles and I can’t even remember the name of the diaper brand.” C.A.S. “Which commercials don’t annoy me? Actually, to be fair, a few are entertaining. A campaign that isn’t is the one for deodorant in which the gold-digging, badacting blond woman gets advice from a doctor on how to stop sweating. The ‘doctor’ goes on to violate several rules of ethics by dating her.” M.S. “Kit Kat when they snap!! the candy bar repeatedly.” N.P. “Any of them where kids are being brats. For example, in one commercial the neighborhood kids come into the kitchen and start going through the cabinets

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR A special thank you

When you have lost a loved one, you understand the typical past milestones and holidays that bring back smiles and memories of that person. When that loved one is a child, you will eventually face the events that will not happen. This letter is my thank you to the graduating class of St. Dominic who helped us to face one of those events. You see, Jacob would have been among that graduating class of 2011. Not only did the families invite us to join them for all of the ceremonies, but they did so with dignity, poise and respect for my daughters and I.

State wrong to allow drilling On the west side of Cincinnati, we enjoy pockets of preserved green space, plenty of hillside greenery and beautiful parks which all improve our quality of life and provide for a healthy community. The state of Ohio has acres of state parks and nature preserves that serve the same purpose at the macro level. As you may be aware, there was a recent vote of the General Assembly to support House Bill 133, the bill that will allow for drilling in state parks. I believe this vote was ill advised, short sighted and will destroy public lands for the benefit of a couple of multi-million dollar oil companies. In the early 1900s, President Theodore Roosevelt inspired the nation with his love of the outdoors and creation of a new national park system. Ohioans jumped on the bandwagon with their own conservation movement, passing laws, creating agencies and buying land to protect forests, fish and game. The Division of Parks was created as a division of ODNR in 1949 with the statutory obligation to create, supervise, operate and maintain a system of state parks and to promote their use by the public. In 1968, then-Gov. Jim Rhodes

advocated for, and helped pass, a bond issue in the amount of $779 million for public priorities including transportation projects, vocational Denise schools and Driehaus public parks. votCommunity ersIn 1993 passed Press guest another bond columnist issue to further develop our park system and modernize facilities. The citizens of Ohio have consistently supported a strong and vibrant park system. As evidence of our commitment to state parks, in November 1997, the Ohio State Parks system was recognized as the nation’s finest – winning of the first ever National Gold Medal Award for state parks recreation excellence. Our predecessors had the foresight to set aside and invest in lands for public park use. Investments were made then, and have been made since, to ensure that the public park system in Ohio would thrive into the future. These individuals understood the value of parks, both from an environmental and an economic stand

point. Superior parks improve the quality of life in Ohio and in turn help drive economic growth. The parks belong to the people of Ohio. The members of the General Assembly are simply the stewards of these state assets. It is our charge, during our service as state representatives, to preserve and care for the state’s assets on behalf of the citizens of the state. We owe it to the future generations of Ohioans to be responsible public stewards. We should work to preserve public parks instead of adulterating them for private profit. You are all welcome to attend a town hall I am hosting at the Esquire Theatre, Thursday, July 21st at 7:30 p.m. We will be viewing “Gasland,” a movie that depicts the impacts of drilling and a new process that is due to increase in Ohio called hydrofracking. The event is free and open to the public. Democrat Denise Driehuas is the state representative of the 31st House District. She can be reached at 77 S.

Tips for coping with deployment Deployment of a parent can be very difficult for military families to handle, and can be especially stressful for the children. Here are some tips to help kids cope when a family member goes to combat. When you learn that a family member will be deployed, plan ahead. It makes it easier when you know what to expect and have strategies for dealing with all the changes and possible stresses on both the children and the spouse left behind. The first thing to do is to try to keep things at home as stable as possible. Keep bedtime and mealtime routines the same. Be honest with kids about what is happening without making unrealistic promises. Limit exposure to TV news and headlines. It helps to maintain a bond with the deployed parent, either through emails, letters or Skype. Be creative. Before departure, the deployed parent can record a book for the kids to listen to, or write notes to be opened on special days or holidays. Counting down days on a calendar can be reassuring. Encourage kids to make scrapbooks or videos for the parent who’s away so they will not miss out on birthdays and other

special events. Give kids permission to focus on school, sports and their friends. Some kids feel guilty if they are having fun while a parent is gone. Teresa Esterle Reassure them Community that the absent would Press guest parent want them to columnist take care of themselves. The parent left behind also needs to stay emotionally healthy, and should allow friends and relatives to help them through difficult times. Sometimes it helps to make connections with other military families who are “in the same boat.” Allow children to express their feelings. Realize that kids might not all react the same way to stress, and it’s important to let them deal with the issues in their own way. It is normal for children to have strong emotions around such an event, which may range from pride to sadness to anger. Help them express themselves by writing letters, drawing pictures, or keeping a journal. Studies have shown that chil-

dren of deployed soldiers have higher rates of depression and hospitalization for mental illness. Keep a watchful eye for signs that your child needs professional counseling. Indications that kids may be suffering include chronic headaches, stomachaches, fatigue, and falling grades. Kids may also become obsessed about war or terrorism. Ask your doctor or school counselor to help with a mental health referral. Be prepared that homecoming can be just as stressful as going away. Sometimes the parent who comes home is emotionally wounded. Often the family has also changed a lot while they’ve been gone. Try not to have high expectations and realize that times may be tough for a bit as people readjust to each other. There are lots of good resources to help military families, including the National Military Family Association (www.nmfa.org) and the National Resource Directory (www. nationalresourcedirectory.gov). Teresa Esterle, M.D., is a board certified pediatrician at West Side Pediatrics in western Cincinnati. Esterle is also a member of the medical staff at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center.

Club offers up menu of food, music and fun By Heidi Fallon hfallon@communitypress.com

Despite the heat, folks enjoyed an evening of food and music at the Delhi Civic Association’s Taste of Rock and Blues July 9. The Pole Cats and Birdfinder performed on stage while several Delhi Township businesses provided the food ranging from chocolate treats to chili. “This is our third Taste of Rock and Blues and it’s a

way we bring the community together,” said Lisa Witterstaetter, association president. “We don’t benefit from this or the other concerts we have during the summer. It’s just our gift to the residents of the township.” Even with blistering temperatures, Witterstaetter said the weather was better than the first year for the taste. “It rained and was quite a challenge,” she said.

Ed Conrad takes a break from his duties with Delhi Township Citizen Emergency Response Team booth to watch Lillian Walke, 8, Westwood, sample a menu item from Skyline Chili at the Taste of Rock and Blues.

Next up for the association is the Aug. 2 concert in conjunction with National Night Out. It, too, will be at the Delhi Township Park starting at 6:30 p.m. and features Howl-n-Maxx. Township police and fire departments will be on hand with equipment, demonstrations and information. For more about your community, visit www. cincinnati.com/delhitownship.

When it comes to collars, one kind doesn’t fit all metal buckles. Plastic buckles can break if a dog tugs hard enough. There are two types of training collars: choke chains and pinch collars. He doesn’t recommend choke chains. “They don’t train the dog, they only choke the dog,” he said. “Pinch collars are best for training purposes,” he said. “They shouldn’t be kept on a dog all of the time, but they work great. “I had a lady come in the store the other day PHOTO BY MARSIE NEWBOLD

Jeff King, owner of Pets Plus in Taylor Mill, measures Nosey for a collar. King, who owns Pets Plus in Taylor Mill for the “4-11” on collars, harnesses and leashes. According to Jeff, there are several categories of collars and they serve different purposes beyond just something to hang ID tags on. There are walking collars, tie-out collars and training collars. The most common are made of nylon or leather. If you have a dog that gets wet a lot, a nylon collar is the best choice. Leather collars can be ruined, for example, if your pet goes swimming. One size does not fit all. Collars come in many lengths and widths and should be chosen according to your dog’s size. For example, a basset hound like Nosey needs a wider collar than a Scottish terrier because they give the owner more control. To get a perfect fit, it is best to bring the dog with you to try them on.

Jeff King’s tips

• Put a collar on a new puppy as soon as you get them home. This will make them get used to wearing one from the beginning. • Choose rolled collars for long-haired dogs and flat collars for short-haired dogs. • Check the fit of your dog’s collar at least every two weeks. The fit will change as a dog grows, gains or loses weight. • Do not choose a choke chain. • Always use a tape lead. Corded leads are dangerous because they can get wrapped around your fingers and burn or cut you. • Make sure that your dog is wearing ID tags at all times. A good fit is when you can fit two fingers between the collar and the dog’s neck. Then, check to make sure it cannot slip over the dog’s head. Jeff adds that tie-out collars should, in addition to the factors above, have

Be sure to do the paperwork for your baby’s insurance There are lots of things to do when you have a baby, and notifying your health insurance company in a timely fashion is one of the most important. That’s what a Fairfield couple learned after they were denied health insurance for their newborn. Braden and Carrie Hasselbeck knew they needed to add their baby to their health insurance policy. Braden said they were relying on Carrie’s insurance. “We were going to have a baby and my insurance wasn’t doing as well. So, we switched Carrie to fulltime work and we were going to expect coverage from her,” he said. Baby Madison was born Jan. 25, and Braden said, “We got back from the hospital – it was a C-section so we were there for about a week. We knew we needed to add the baby to the insurance so we actually contacted Carrie’s boss at work.” They were told to contact Carrie’s human resource’s department but, although they made numerous phone calls, it was several weeks before they finally got through, filled out the necessary

paperwork and had it submitted. “By the time she received a call from the company it Howard Ain was just to us Hey Howard! let know it was too late,” Braden said. Although Carrie’s health insurance card said she has “family coverage,” she really doesn’t. They have “employee and spouse insurance.” Their policy needs to be changed to “family coverage,” costing an additional $75 a month, but they can’t do it now since their window of opportunity has closed. “They cover everything for my wife, they cover everything for me, but anything with Madison’s name on it is immediately declined,” Braden said. “They show what the insurance should pay, but is not paying.” Carrie said, “They just needed paperwork at my job that I could have found online, but nobody told me it was online.” At this point the baby’s

medical bills amount to almost $12,000. Carrie offers this advice to all pregnant families, “They need to check with their employer months in advance – and follow up on it.” The goal is to switch from “employee and spouse coverage” to “family coverage,” and that can only be done after the baby is born. Under federal law you have just 31 days to submit the paperwork with the baby’s name and date of birth. After that time you must wait until the next open enrollment period. In Hasselbeck’s case, that will happen in October. There could have been confusion because the Hasselbeck’s insurance card said they had “family coverage.” In addition, they had a hard time getting through to the human resources department, but the Hasselbeck’s appeal was turned down. So, don’t let this happen to you. Howard Ain answers consumer complaints weekdays on WKRC-TV Local 12. Write to him at 12 WKRC-TV, 1906 Highland Ave., Cincinnati 45219.

who had a Springer spaniel that pulled on its leash. After I put a pinch collar on it, it stopped pulling immediately.” Harnesses, like the one I chose for Nosey, go around the chest and ribcage and are kept in place by the dog’s front legs. They cannot be slipped over the head like a collar. Jeff is partial to what is called a “comfort wrap.” It looks a bit like a stretchy nylon vest. Leashes come in three sizes, a 2-foot traffic lead, a

4-foot one for big dogs and a 6-foot one for small dogs. There are also double leashes for walking two dogs at a time and retractable leashes. “You can’t just walk into a pet shop and buy off the peg,” Jeff counsels, “You need to fit collars, harnesses and leashes according to your individual dog’s needs.” For more pet care tips, visit www.marsiesmenagerie.com.

“Nosey, STOP!” I cried, as my basset hound slipped out of her collar and went running happily toward traffic. “Look at me, I’m one naked doggie!” she giggled, stopping just before reaching the street, then trotting back to me, with her tail wagging merrily. “Oh, Nosey,” I said, firmly fastening the collar back around her neck, “That’s not funny, you could have been hurt or worse.

Out of one zucchini jam and into another

We waited until late June to plant our zucchini and cucumbers. And we did that on purpose since every year I’m inundated with both of these veggies at exactly the same time the tomatoes and peppers are ready for picking.

It’s hard to keep up, so this year I’m staggering the planting so that we can get a breather in between.

Easy zucchini peach pineapple jam

For several readers who

wanted this recipe again. It’s a great way to use that abundance of zucchini that you know you’ll have if you grow it. Go to taste on the sugar. I find 3 cups is plenty, but most folks like 4-5. A nonstick pan is best for this.

Mary Weber, 90, was hairdresser to nuns Gannett News Service

For all of her long life, Mary A. Weber was devoted to the Catholic Church - a devotion that went far beyond attending Mass and saying the Sorrowful Mother Novena every Friday night. She used her talents to give back to the church she loved so much, volunteering

to cut the hair of the nuns at the Sisters of Charity at Mount St. Joseph and making by hand hundreds of rosaries, many of which were sent to Catholic missionaries in Africa. “She was a deeply religious woman,” said her son, Mark Weber of Cleves. “She lived a life of faith.” Mrs. Weber - who was

born in Sedamsville, raised her family in Price Hill and lived for many years in Delhi Township - died Monday at Shawneesprings of Harrison, a nursing facility. She was 90 years old. Mark Weber said that when her husband, the late Richard E. Weber, was away serving in World War II, she studied hairdressing and

began styling women’s hair as a way to make ends meet. After the war, when her husband returned home and they began raising their family of six children, she stopped cutting hair but kept her license. In the 1970s, Mark Weber said, at a time when nuns began coming out of their formal habits and the cornettes that hid their hair, the Sisters of Charity in Delhi needed someone to cut and style their hair. Mrs. Weber volunteered and for the next 25 years made weekly visits to the Sisters of Charity Motherhouse to cut the hair of the nuns. “The sisters were very good to her; and she was very good to them,” Mark

Cincinnati Woman’s Club members conducted a toy drive on June 15 that yielded a bumper crop of spanking new playthings for youngsters served by Every Child Succeeds and Success by 6. Every Child Succeeds is a home visitation program for at-risk first-time mothers and their babies ranging in age from neonatal through age 3. The professional home visitors address personal and family health, environmental safety, child development, life course development, maternal role, social supports, and adequate and appropriate access to health and human services. In Southwest Ohio and Northern Kentucky, Success By 6 works with numerous stakeholders – United Way of Greater Cincinnati, school districts, the business community, local nonprofit agencies, parents, community leaders and public agencies – to raise awareness about the importance of the early years and to make early childhood a top priority for resources and funding. Because of generosity like that of Cincinnati Woman’s Club members, the professionals for both these organizations bring toys for the children when they conduct their home visits. New toys collected by Cincinnati Woman’s Club members will make the summer of 2011 a season to remember for dozens of local children. This activity is one of many ways the Cincinnati Woman’s Club members continue the tradition of volunteerism and philanthropy in our community that dates back to 1897.
