Shilohfest to give school backpacks By Monica Boylson

Delhi Twp. — Shiloh United Methodist Church is helping families in need one backpack at a time. The ministry is hosting the ninth annual Shilohfest, a school supply giveaway from 2-4 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 3, at the church, 5261 Foley Road. The group will give away

hundreds of backpacks to children in kindergarten through eighth grades. Included in each backpack are: folders, notebooks, paper, crayons, colored pencils, pens, pencils, erasers, glue and a ruler. “There’s a big need for this, this time of year,” event coordinator Sharon Spraul, 44, said. “We’re trying to be the hands and feet of Christ.

This is a tangible way to show them that Jesus loves them and so do the people at Shiloh.” In addition to the school supply giveaway there will be free food, games and entertainment and children can get a free back-to-school haircut. People who attend are asked to bring a canned good or non-perishable food item which will be donated to local

food pantries. Children must be present to receive a backpack. “It’s very rewarding to see the joy on the kids faces,” event coordinator Jenny Rebennack, 40, said. “The kids get so excited when they see their new backpacks.” Spraul said Shilohfest is one of the church’s biggest ministries. Funds for the backpacks were donated by

parishioners and part of the missions budget includes money for school supplies. “It serves the most people and gets the most people in our doors,” she said. “It’s a labor of love for the kids.” For more information about the event or donate, visit Donations can be mailed or dropped off to the church with the attention to Shilohfest.

Police, fire spending the night out

By Monica Boylson

Delhi Twp. — Residents will have the opportunity to meet township police and firefighters during Delhi Night Out as part of the Delhi Skirt Game Tailgate Party. Members of the \police and fire departments will attend the night out from 6 to 10 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 2, at the Remke Bigg’s, 5025 Delhi Road. And they won’t come empty handed. The departments will

bring their equipment and vehicles. The police department will bring two police cars and a motorcycle and there will be officers to meet with residents. “Delhi Night Out is a good opportunity for the citizens to learn about their police department. Citizens, young and old, will have the opportunity to view department equipment and speak with officers,” Police Chief Jim Howarth said. “Delhi Night Out is just another good example of the community working together.”

And the community may work together to try to dunk the police chief. Howarth smiled when he said that he would be perched in a dunking booth during the night. The fire department will bring a firetruck and ambulance, and firefighters will be there to meet residents. “We are the community’s employees. We work for the people in the community,” Fire Chief Bill Zoz said. “It’s important for us to relay that to people.” Zoz said that people can

tour the vehicles and see how they operate. “We want to be more inclusive of the community,” he said. Delhi Skirt Game co-chairman Clyde Kober said he approached the chiefs with the idea to have the Delhi Night Out at the tailgate party. “We wanted to do something to spotlight the police and fire departments,” he said. “We draw a big crowd at the tailgate party and it’s a great opportunity for people to meet them.”

Price Hill — Mary Durbin said she loves getting the chance to spend time with her family and friends at Coney Island. The Price Hill resident was among hundreds of folks who made a trip east Wednesday, July 17 for the annual Price Hill Day at Coney. “It’s a beautiful day,” Durbin said. “I enjoy watching my grandchildren have fun and seeing some old friends.” The discounted admission Coney Island offers for Price Hill Day is also nice, she said, as it allows many families to have a great day swimming in Sunlite Pool and riding all the rides for a reasonable price. “You get to do it all, and see the good people of Price Hill,” Durbin said. A neighborhood tradition dating back to 1916, the Price Hill Historical Society now organizes Price Hill Day at Coney. Historical society board member Florence Sparks, who helps plan the day each year with her husband, Dave, and society treasurer Betty Wagner, said they sold hundreds of tickets to this year’s celebration and expected to fill up the Lost River shelter with families. “It’s such a fun day,” Mrs.

Sparks said. “We’ve had a number of people who have told us they don’t want us to give it up.” Delhi Township resident Kim Coyne, who grew up in Price Hill, said this was her first year attending Price Hill Day. She said she doesn’t like the heat, but her family encouraged her to come and have a good time. “I’m looking forward to swimming and cooling off,” she said. “I also have some friends coming who I haven’t seen in a while.” Coyne said she’s glad she decided to attend this year. The event is a nice way for the neighborhood to get together and enjoy the summer, she said. “It’s really good for some of the kids because they don’t often get to do something like this,” she

said. Price Hill resident Vinny Morena said his family makes the trek to Coney every year. “It’s my grandma’s favorite day of the whole summer,” he said. “She says it’s her day off from having all the kids over at her house.” He said he was looking forward to swimming with all of his cousins. Some of his younger cousins woke up at 6:30 a.m. and put their swim suits on they were so excited, he said. “It’s fun to see all of my family,” Morena said. “This and the Fourth of July are the two big days we get together as a family.” Mrs. Sparks said although it’s a lot of work she likes helping organize Price Hill Day for the community. “Price Hill Day is a tradition that’s been going on since 1916, and we’re carrying it on,” she said.

Grammy, Emmy winners performing at Delhi Skirt Game By Monica Boylson


Delhi Twp. — The boys, or rather the girls, are back in town to raise money at the 36th annual Delhi Skirt Game for residents in need. Men will don their best gowns as the winning women of Emmy and Grammy awards and compete in a Emmys versus Grammys softball showdown at Delhi Park Friday, Aug. 2. The festival opens at 5 p.m. and the players will make their grand entrance at 6 p.m. Skirt Game co-chairman Clyde Kober said. Past recipients of funds from the Delhi Skirt Game will be recognized on the field, a color guard will present colors, there will be a bagpipe player, an invocation and the players will be introduced, he said. The game is expected to start around 7 p.m. and Kober said Hamilton County Sheriff Jim Neil will be one of the umpires for the game dressed as Nicole Kidman. WKRCTV Local 12’s Bob Herzog will emcee the game. “It’s a great time and a great way to raise money,” Kober said. He said last year’s Skirt Game festivities brought in about $60,000. “The reason the Skirt Game has been around for so many years is because Delhi is the type of community that cares for their neighbors,” Skirt

La Salle senior honors veterans with Eagle Scout project By Kurt Backscheider

Trey Prybal, a Green Township teen entering his senior year at La Salle High School, installed six flagpoles at the veterans memorial plaza in Veterans Park for his Eagle Scout project. The poles fly the flags for each branch of the armed services. PHOTO PROVIDED

Green Twp. — Trey Prybal said the township’s Veterans Park honors military veterans in many ways, but he noticed there was something missing. The park features the Veterans Tribute Tower, a memorial plaza and an old Army tank, but flags representing the military branches have never flown above the park. Through his Eagle Scout project, Prybal set out to change that. The Green Township teen, who is entering his senior year at La Salle High School, recently completed the installation of six flagpoles at the park’s memorial plaza.

Patricia Prybal, Trey’s mother, said she and her husband couldn’t be happier their son accomplished his goal of becoming an Eagle Scout. “We’re very proud of him for sticking with it and doing such a nice job,” she said. “His project looks so nice. We’re happy he finished it.” Trey said he realized he chose the right project for his Eagle Scout the day he was at the park laying mulch. As they were spreading the mulch around, he said a little girl, clutching a small American flag and walking alongside her mother, approached him. The girl asked if she could place her flag at the base of the pole flying the Marine Corps flag in honor of her father who is serving in the Marines. He told her she certainly could. “It was a moving moment,” he said. Prybal, who plays lacrosse and swims for La Salle and is also a member of the school’s Signum Fidei leadership organization, said he’s been involved in scouting since the first grade and he’s glad he completed his goal of earning the Boy Scouts’ highest honor. He expects to receive the rank of Eagle Scout sometime this August.

The poles fly the flags of the U.S. Marine Corps, U.S. Army, U.S. Air Force, U.S. Navy, U.S. Coast Prybal Guard and the U.S. Merchant Marines. “When I was doing my merit badge for lifesaving, I was talking to my merit badge counselor about what I should to for my Eagle Scout project and he said I should do something that inspires me,” said Prybal, a member of Boy Scout Troop 850 at St. Ignatius Church. “I’ve been considering going into the Marines, so I thought it would be a good idea to raise the flags of all the different military branches for the veterans.” He received donations from family members to purchase the poles and flags, and said he led a team of nine people to install them at the park. After the poles were erected, Prybal and his crew finished the project by putting down new mulch. A total of 99.5 volunteer hours were put into the project, he said. “It felt pretty good to finish it,” he said. “I think a lot of veterans who see it will be proud.”

Dental center being built at West High, Dater

Elder High School student Graham Swink has worked to recreate the original Elder High School building from 1922. The LEGO structure stands 33 inches by 56 inches and consists of over 9,000 pieces. Swink spent months designing the project and ordering pieces. He used LEGO Digital Designer to aid him in the process. Once everything was ordered and laid out, Swink and his LEGO group began assembling the project. The group spent over 150 hours piecing the project together. In the fall, Swink and his friends also created a LEGO version of The Pit.

The Health Foundation of Greater Cincinnati and The Deaconess Associations Foundation have provided funding to construct a dental center as part of the new Deaconess Health Check School Based Health Center at Western Hills University High School/ Dater High School. The four-chair dental center is currently being constructed as part of a comprehensive school-based health center and is expected to open in January 2014. The center will provide year-round dental services to students and nearby Head Start toddlers. The center is expected to serve 2,000 children and teens annually. The original construction of the school-based health center was funded by a grant from the Health Resources and Services Administration. The dental center added an additional $165,000 to the original $500,000 design and construction fees, and the Health Foundation and Deaconess Associations Foundation have provided grants to cover the added cost. “Access to dental services for children covered by Medicaid has been a longstanding challenge,” says Dr. Marilyn Crumpton, Cincinnati Health Department. Of Cincinnati Public Schools’ 33,000-plus student population, 70 percent are eligible for Medicaid. “This is a dedicated partnership that is in harmony with the Deaconess organization’s focus on advancing healthcare,” says Tony Woods, chairman, Deaconess Associations Inc. “A wide range of partners has already joined to financially support these two projects.” Francie Wolgin, senior program officer, Health Foundation, says, “The Cincinnati Health Department is hiring and supervising the dental providers, as well as covering operating costs, and Cincinnati Dental Society Foundation is coordinating volunteer dentists to provide additional services for children in the center.” Cincinnati Public Schools is providing the space rent free, and will pay all utilities and facility upkeep costs. The Children’s Oral Health Network and Cincinnati Health Department are working to raise an additional $197,000 to fund the purchase of dental equipment for the clinic.

Elder’s Ramstetter soon to be a Buckeye By Tom Skeen

ZEBULON, NC — It’s been a

Oak Hills graduate Josh Richmond sprints in to third base for the Winston-Salem Dash. Richmond is hitting .253 for the Class High-A affiliate of the Chicago White Sox. THANKS TO JODY STEWART/WINSTON-SALEM DASH

ball with the Chicago White Sox organization. “I was ecstatic,” Richmond said. “… I was so excited and I just thank God because it was really my relationship with him that saw me through my struggles and I think this is definitely where I belong. It’s another chance to make it to the Major Leagues and live out my dream.” Richmond was immediately sent to Kannapolis, N.C., where he made an instant im-

pact for the Class Low-A Kannapolis Intimidators. In just 14 games the outfielder hit .375 with nine doubles and 11 RBI resulting in his call-up to the Dash. “I think I was fresh,” Richmond said of his success with the Intimidators. “… I was coming off a good offseason of work, feeling good, my confidence was through the roof and I just stuck with my approach and kept my routine the same and worked as hard as I could.”

No matter what happens from this point on in Richmond’s career, he is going to stick to what has got him to this point. “I’ve always been the type of guy, no matter the results, to just play as hard a I possibly can every day and the rest will take care of itself,” he said. “That’s what I keep doing and I’m seeing a little bit more success that I did last year, but I’m just playing as hard and working as hard as I can.”

NKU athletes honored for academics Northern Kentucky University student-athletes recently were recognized for their success in the classroom by the Atlantic Sun Conference. After completing NKU’s first season at the NCAA Division I level, 148 student-athletes received A-Sun All-Academic honors for their performance in the classroom during the 2012-13 academic year. The recognition is awarded to student-athletes who earn a minimum 3.0 grade-point average on a 4.0 scale during the school year. Lucas Edelan (men’s soccer), Glen Este grad Jaimie Hamlet (women’s basketball), Clare Field (women’s cross country/track and field), Elder grad Nathan Sexton (men’s soccer), and Newport Central Catholic graduate Taylor Snyder (volleyball) were among the 114 student-athletes to earn a perfect 4.0 for 2012-13. Four NKU student-athletes were named to both the Commissioner’s Scholar and Presidents’ Scholar lists: Bishop Brossart grad Michael Bartlett (men’s soccer), Andre Correa (men’s tennis), Goshen graduate Kelsey Gaffney (women’s cross country/track and field), and Cassie Lingenhoel (women’s soccer). To be placed on both lists, student-athletes must have completed their final year of eligibility, received their degree during the academic year and posted a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.6 and 3.8, respectively. In addition, 53 Norse made


Richmond looking to make the most of his second chance whirlwind of a year for Oak Hills graduate Josh Richmond. The 24-year-old outfielder is currently playing for the Class High-A Winston-Salem Dash, an affiliate of the Chicago White Sox, where he is hitting .253 with 15 RBI and four home runs in 24 games. “Right now I feel good,” Richmond said. “I’ve kept my same approach, but I’ve made some adjustments after last season with my two-strike approach and being able to hit the pitches that (the pitchers) make a mistake on.” That all sounds well and good, but the journey it took the former Highlander to get back to high-A ball is a fast and furious one. It started last season when Richmond hit .178 in 88 games for the high-A Myrtle Beach Pelicans of the Texas Rangers organization. The 12th-round pick in the 2010 MLB Draft was released by the Rangers after the 2012 season. “It was really tough,” he said. “I’ve always dreamed of playing Major League Baseball. In the Rangers’ system they have so many prospects, so if you do have one bad year that’s all it takes.” After a week of beating himself up, he got his mind right and found himself back in the gym and in the cages working toward his dream again. In May Richmond hooked up with the Florence Freedom of the Independent Frontier League. After five games where he hit .267, he found himself back in affiliated base-

PRICE HILL — It’s not very often that an injury leads to a dream coming true. That was exactly the case for Elder graduate Joe Ramstetter, who recently signed as a preferred walk-on at Ohio State University. The former Panther originally signed to play baseball at the University of Dayton, but after tearing his labrum – an injury to the shoulder joint – the calls started coming in about playing football at the next level. “I just started getting interest from schools like Miami (University), Michigan State and Georgia Tech,” Ramstetter said. “Ohio State popped up, I’ve always loved OSU and it was a no-brainer for me.” The opportunity came about after discussions with fellow Panther Jake Hilvert and Elder coach Doug Ramsey. Hilvert – who will play for Miami this season – told his teammate he could probably walk-on at Miami. After being offered a preferred walk-on opportunity by Michigan State after the Spartans visited the Price Hill school, Ramstetter asked Ramsey if he could make a call. “I asked coach if there was any way he could give Ohio State a call,” Ramstetter said. “Coach said yes and (Ohio State assistant) coach (Kerry) Coombs said yeah to a preferred walk-on spot and that was that. It was literally a halfhour thing.” What made the process even easier was the reaction of those at UD. Knowing his chances of playing baseball as a freshmen were slim to none due to his injury, the Flyers’ staff were more than understanding. “I told them Ohio State gave me an opportunity I couldn’t pass up and they completely agreed,” he said. “They were a little disappointed but they understood.” Ramstetter will join several Panthers before him to suit up for the Buckeyes, including Jason Ott and Jake McQuaide. While he hasn’t spoken with either of them yet, a conversation with McQuaide is on the horizon.

Former Elder wide receiver Joe Ramstetter (8) goes up and catches a touchdown pass against Colerain in the closing second of the 4th quarter of their Division I regional semifinal game last season at Nippert Stadium. It was one of nine touchdown receptions for the soon-to-be Ohio State Buckeye.JOSEPH FUQUA II/COMMUNITY PRESS



CATCHING UP WITH COLLEGE ATHLETES College of Mount St. Joseph golfer Matt Stiens, a La Salle High School graduate, was recently named to the All-Conference team in the HCAC, by virtue of finishing fourth in the HCAC Championships with a score of 296, just eight shots over par.

Academic all stars

The Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference has announced the 2013 spring honorees for the Tom Bohlsen Academic All-HCAC and the HCAC All-Sportsmanship teams. Academic All-Conference selections have at least a cumulative 3.5 GPA and are varsity athletes. The cumulative GPA is the student-athletes’ GPA at the end of the semester preceding the end of the spring season. The student-athlete has completed the equivalent of a full academic year, full time enrolled, at the institution to be eligible for the Academic AllConference award. The award is named after Tom Bohlsen, who served as the HCAC’s first commissioner from 1998 to 2008. Those selected from


This is a free-flowing artery thanks to tPA. It may look like modern art, but it’s a lifesaver. tPA is a drug that breaks up blood clots, keeps arteries flowing and helps limit the damaging effects of a stroke. Today, thousands of neurologists all over the world use tPA, but the discovery happened right here in Cincinnati at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center’s Comprehensive Stroke Center. We continue to pioneer breakthroughs in science so we can perfect the art of saving lives.

Bad set up

The seniors paid Delhi Township $6,000 rental fee to be able to use the senior center Tuesday through Friday for July through December 2013. Delhi rents the hall out at other times. On Friday July, 12, the seniors arrived at the Senior Center, and it was arranged for a wedding (to be held that night). I have no problem with Delhi renting the hall, but why does Delhi expect the seniors to move the tables and chairs for our use. Delhi does not expect other renters to set up their table and chairs. Why can’t Delhi wait until after 4 p.m. when we leave? We paid rent too; after all it is a senior center first, not a rental hall! Note: some of the equipment the renters use in the center were purchased by the seniors. Kenneth F. Lammers Sr. Delhi Township

Thanks for help

CTRH Horse Show is humanity at its finest Have you ever heard of or been to the CTRH Horse Show held in August in Milford? CTRH stands for Cincinnati Therapeutic Riding and Horsemanship. It is a nonprofit organization whose sole purpose is to provide recreational and therapeutic horsemanship activities for children and adults with disabilities. Riders have disabilities such as autism, cerebral Jan Stetter palsy, Down Wies COMMUNITY PRESS syndrome, developmental GUEST COLUMNIST delay and many, many others. It was my privilege to attend last year’s “Richard Thomas Annual Horse Show” on a bright, August Saturday. My friend from high school has been a volunteer at CTRH stables for several years. In that capacity she has assisted children with spine injuries, adults with behavioral anxieties and a multitude of others with various physical and cognitive disabilities. Many of the riders she assists cannot stand or walk independently, yet, on a horse assisted by trained instructors and volunteers these people are given independence and a freedom beyond the restrictions of their wheelchairs and braces. Last year I attended this horse show not quite knowing what to expect. Would there be ribbons? Would there be races? Would mint juleps be served and ladies wearing flamboyant hats meet me at the gate as in the manner of our own Kentucky Derbies? No such fanfare was presented at this horse show. Instead I saw so much more and I was humbled.

CTRH riders both young and old compete in a series of show classes held at several scheduled intervals. Only CTRH riders participate. The riders show what they’ve learned in their CTRH Adaptive Recreational Riding classes and circle the track assisted by volunteers who lead the horses and walk on either side of the rider. Spectators are asked for complete silence in order to keep the horses calm and minimize any undue noise or distraction. If you haven’t had the challenge of living with a person with “different abilities” you may never know the challenges and joys faced by the individuals and their families on a daily basis. Going to the Richard Thomas Annual Horse Show gave me that view for a few brief hours and I was amazed. All day as I looked around at all of the people there, I felt a sense of goodness. I felt like I was witnessing the very best that we as people have to share with others. The look of accomplishment, pride, independence and joy in the eyes of the horse riders and their family and friends was gratifying. I am not associated with the Cincinnati Therapeutic Riding and Horsemanship Association in any manner other than being a guest of a friend who volunteers there. It was my honor to attend the horse show and I would like to invite you to do the same. This year it will be held on Saturday, Aug. 3. The CTRH stables are located at 1342 U.S. 50, Milford/Miami Township. Call 831-7050 for information. Since the CTRH members come from all over the Tristate area - I invite all to attend.

New railroads meant progress for area In 1863, Lower Delhi was a rural depressed area. The Civil War was in full swing. Troops were everywhere, being moved around by trains and boats. Trains moved troops around faster and more efficiently and transportation started moving away from the rivers to the rails. Trains were transforming rural areas into villages. In our area the Indianapolis, Cincinnati, & Lafayette Betty Kamuf COMMUNITY PRESS Railroad was buying up the GUEST COLUMNIST decaying canal bed along the river. Maj. Peter Zinn, on furlough from the Civil War, wrote a letter to Judge John Cleves Short complaining about the railroad buying up all the public land and wanted his help in stopping it. But progress was on its way. Joel Richardson, a railroad and bridge builder from New Hampshire, arrived in Delhi Township in 1863. He had been building bridges, railroads and rolling mills in Vermont, Shelbyville and Lawrenceburg, Indiana. He was to supervise building of a new railroad for IC&L along the river bank. He recruited men from other areas where he worked. Joel and Mary had had five children; Ida, George,

(died at 2) Brazillia, Thomas and Mary Jane. When his house at 6426 River Road was built, houses were so sparse that he could see all the way to North Bend from his front door. The telegraph instruments for the main line of the IC&L and the Whitewater Valley Railroad were next to his desk in the library of their home. Twenty-five years after the Civil War was a time of unparalleled growth in Cincinnati and that growth brought in land speculators and they developed subdivisions and built houses. Home City and Delhi were incorporated and Fernbank was plotted. The new families like the Richardsons joined together and built churches, schools and organized social groups. They belonged to the newly established Delhi Methodist Church. Ida played the organ for the Sunday school. Joel joined the Monitor Lodge No. 445 F &AM in Home City when it was organized in 1870, and was elected the first life member in 1894. Ida Richardson attended St. Mary’s-of-the-Woods boarding school in Indiana. She taught school at old Delhi School across from St. Aloysius, and was principal for a time. She became a talented artist, china painter, musician and writer, after attending Oxford Female College of Design in

Cincinnati. She was a member of the Delhi Literary Society, and published a newsletter in 1866. Joel’s older brother Eri Richardson also came to Lower Delhi about that same time. He bought the Maples from Alfred Cook, and raised quarter horses and was a lumber dealer. Eri and his wife Elizabeth had five children: Leslie, Eva, Gertrude, Grace, and Alice. Both of the brothers were land speculators, and developed a subdivision. In 1868, Joel Richardson resigned from the railroad and purchased land in North Bend and built a coal elevator to load coal onto trains instead of shoveling. The railroads didn’t want it, and he lost his $20,000 investment. The elevator was purchased by John Cleves and Charles Wilkins Short who were living in Addyston. After that Joel Richardson went into the coal and port packing business with partners. The Richardsons like many of the early speculators moved onto other areas. Joel moved to Indiana where he died in 1893 and his wife in 1892. Eri Richardson moved to Sioux City Iowa where, he died in 1902.

The challenge of domestic violence cases Domestic violence is defined, in part, as knowingly causing or threatening to cause physical harm to a family or household member. Family or household members include spouses, live-in partners, children, parents or a person with whom you have a child in common. For a variety of reasons, domestic violence cases present Brad unique chalGreenberg lenges. Some COMMUNITY PRESS of these reaGUEST COLUMNIST sons include: lack of cooperation by the prosecuting witness; lack of evidence and witnesses; and difficulty in changing the defendant’s behavior. In 2012, there were 2,633 arrests for domestic violence in Hamilton County. Some of these cases were charged as felonies if the defendant had a prior domestic violence conviction. Most of the cases were misdemeanors and heard in Municipal Court. The lack of cooperation by the prosecuting witness (usually a woman) is common in domestic violence cases.

Approximately half of the alleged victims fail to appear for trial despite being subpoenaed to do so. The reasons that alleged victims fail to come to court vary. Frequently, the couple has reconciled and the woman no longer wants to pursue the charge. Other times, the victim is reluctant to come to court because she depends financially on the man and fears a potential jail sentence would cause job loss and financial hardship. Sometimes the victim faces intimidation and believes that she would be in greater danger if she testified against the defendant. Some victims come to court but then claim that they don’t remember or that it was “just a misunderstanding.” Whatever the reason for the victim’s failure to appear or be forthcoming, eventually the case is dismissed. When the alleged victim does come to court, a lack of evidence and witnesses present challenges for the prosecution. Most domestic violence occurs in the home away from other eyewitnesses. Many acts of domestic violence do not result in photographable injuries. Without photographs or

eyewitnesses, many cases boil down to the testimony of the alleged victim against the defendant. Unless the victim is substantially more credible than the defendant, these cases are difficult to prove beyond a reasonable doubt. Even with a conviction, deciding on a fair and effective sentence for a defendant is a challenge. Most domestic violence offenders have issues with substance abuse, anger management or mental health. These problems are not excuses but should be addressed in order to prevent re-occurrence of the behavior. Although judges have a lot of sentencing options, ranging from probation and counseling up to incarceration, they can’t easily fix the underlying problems. Despite the challenges of domestic violence cases, occasional success stories arise; where defendants are held responsible and able to get help and families are repaired. If you, or someone you know, are a victim of domestic violence, call Women Helping Women at (513) 977-5541. Judge Brad Greenberg presides in Hamilton County Municipal Court. He is a resident of Loveland.

Family sees Civil War reenactment up close

Four generations of Ashworths attended the Civil War reenactment celebrating the 150th anniversary of the battle of Gettysburg. Paul Ashworth, of Delhi Township, took his son Steve, grandson Steven and greatgrandson Kaden Schulte. We spent two days on the battlefield before returning home via three days in Washington, D.C. Since the reenactment could not take place on the actual battleground, a farm about five miles north was the reenactment battlefield. There were two sold-out grandstands that held 10,000 and thousands of spectators also sat on lawn chairs or threw blankets on the ground watching a piece of history take place on the battleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 150th anniversary. We were lucky to be in the grandstand (which cost an additional $15 each) that was right on top of the action. Infantrymen marched in formation and skirmished right in front of us with a dozen cannons blasting away just to our left. Like the crowd, we were in awe as the smoke drifted through the air and the muskets rang out. It was 92 degrees with about 95 percent humidity just like the weather during real battle only we got to wear shorts while the participants were layered in authentic wool uniforms. The organizers reported 3,900 Union re-enactors were registered (612 from Ohio) and 3,200 Confederates had signed up. They had no way of counting the large number of walk-ons. The Union Calvary numbered 187 horses with another 188 from the South. The Confederates brought 63 cannons and the North 59 cannon onto the field. One guy fabricated an exact replica of a rare (only seven were used in the Civil War) breach-loading Whitworth cannon in his home in Nevada and drove 2,600 miles to take part in what seemed to be, to the re-enactors, the Super Bowl of reenactments. Several we talked with said this was their final reenactment. Witnessing this reenactment kept alive the memory of how our country was shaped and bestowed a sense of pride and honor for those who fought in the Civil War. When I made reservations last October, the whole town was sold out except for a Motel 6 which was charging $300 per night with a three-night minimum. We stayed at the closest motel 25 miles north.

Use your basil bounty for Rita’s freezer pesto Sometimes my enthusiasm in spring for planting herbs and produce goes so out of bounds that when it’s time for harvesting, I get overwhelmed. I went out early to pick tomatoes and happened to see what I thought were a few green beans ready to pick. Ditto for cucumbers. Rita By the Heikenfeld time I RITA’S KITCHEN finished, I had a big basket of beans, almost a dozen cucumbers and more than enough squash for the neighborhood. I had also planted a row of both Iranian/lemon and sweet basil in the veggie garden. (Not that I didn’t already have enough in the herb garden!) The basils were just starting to flower so I had to harvest them, as well. The veggies will keep for a couple of days but I wanted to work with the basil then, so I made my latest version of freezer pesto.

Rita’s freezer pesto

There’s a huge interest in making pesto, so I could probably devote a whole column to it. Readers want to know if nuts are essential. No, and walnuts make a good substitute for pine nuts. Should you add garlic after thawing? I add both nuts and garlic to my pesto prior to freezing, but some food gurus say leave them out since, in their opinion, these items turn strong in the freezer. I use my food processor, but you could use a blender or make this by hand. This is a thicker pesto that freezes well. Add more oil after thawing, if you like. Sometimes I’ll add a bit of water to pesto if I’m

using it to coat pasta. Check out my blog to see some favorite recipes using pesto. 1 to 11⁄2 teaspoons garlic, minced 1 ⁄4 cup pine nuts, toasted if desired 1 ⁄2 stick unsalted butter (optional, but good) Generous handful parsley leaves 4 generous cups basil leaves, packed 11⁄4 cups Parmesan cheese or to taste 1 ⁄4 cup Romano cheese 1 ⁄2 to 3⁄4 cup extra virgin olive oil Generous squeeze of lemon juice

With processor’s motor running, add garlic and nuts. Add everything else and using the pulse button, pulse until just mixed, then pour into containers and freeze.

Tip from Rita’s kitchen

Why does my pesto turn dark? Basil oxidizes rapidly when leaves are cut up either too finely and/or exposed to air, so use the pulse button to mix. That also alleviates heat while processing, which can turn the basil dark. Try these tips to keep your pesto green. » Blanch the basil leaves to keep them green. » Add parsley and lemon juice to keep the green color. » Pour a thin film of oil over the top before storing may keep enough air out, as well. And sometimes, even if you take those steps, it still may get dark. Don’t worry, it’s a visual thing and doesn’t affect the quality or taste.

Tomato zucchini casserole

No real recipe here. Sometimes I’ll add a bit of fresh chopped basil before serving. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray casserole dish. Layer sliced zucchini, sliced onions,

Rita’s recipe for thick pesto freezes well. Add water if using to coat pasta.THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD.

sliced tomatoes, a sprinkling of oregano and garlic powder or fresh minced garlic (not too much), Parmesan and mozzarella cheeses. Repeat layers except for mozzarella, which should be added last 10 minutes of baking time. Bake about 45 minutes or until veggies are tender before adding last layer of cheese.

Orange dreamsicle yogurt pops

From my book, “The Official Snack Guide” for kids. Healthy and refreshing. Blend together:

1 pint plain yogurt 1 ⁄2 cup thawed orange juice concentrate 1 teaspoon vanilla

Pour into frozen pop molds and freeze. Lemonade pops: Substitute pink or regular lemonade for the orange juice.

Stay hydrated

I worry about the younger and older contingent in our Community Press family. They’re the ones who may not hydrate properly, so keep an eye out. Add a squeeze of fresh lemon or lime juice to water for an extra boost for your immune system and to make drinking water more appealing. Make it a fun drink by adding fresh mint, stevia or other sweetener to taste. Rita Nader Heikenfeld is an herbalist, educator and author. Find her blog online at Cincinnati.Com/blogs.

JFS looks to new era under Miller Jewish Family Service had one overriding message at its annual meeting June 25: JFS has grown and transformed from an agency that was in a survival mode for several years into a strong organization that stands out amongst the crowd. Mark Miller, who was installed as the new president of the board, opened with the statement, “It is truly my pleasure to assume the presidency of JFS at a time of unequaled opportunity and excitement. Our agency is financially sound, strategically strong, and JFS is ready to meet the needs

of the Jewish Community for years to come.” While giving a recap of Jewish Family Service’s history, Miller explained how the organization reached this successful point. He thanked the past presidents, board and staff for their hard work and dedication that helped JFS transform from an agency which was paralyzed by cuts during tough financial times to an agency with the confidence and vision to take advantage of growth opportunities. “In 2012 we began to see the fruits of our labor,” Miller said, citing as examples the “Barbash Family Vital Support Center that will become the crown jewel of JFS’s service efforts to those in need in the Jewish community” and the “We Give A… campaign created to get people excited and engaged in Jewish Family Service.” Prior to being installed as president, Miller received praise from outgoing president Michael Schwartz who said, “I’m passing the gavel to Mark with confidence, with excitement for what’s to come, and with pride of what we have accomplished. I know he’ll do a great job.” Schwartz served a three-year term in order to complete a restructuring of the board to a true governance model. He was given a tzedekah box for his commitment and accomplishments as the Jewish Family Service president. He now serves

as the board’s immediate past president. Joining Miller and Schwartz as new officers of the board are Andi Levenson, vice president; Larry Juran, treasurer, and Susan Shorr, secretary. Bruce Baker, a past president, will serve a three-year term along with new board members Melanie Blumental, Joni Burton, Alyce Ellison, Dale Horne, Mark Knue, Tom Smith and Michael Sutter. Lauren Scharf was appointed by the board president for a one-year term. Suzy Marcus Goldberg, Elaine Kaplan and Max Yamson were reelected to a second threeyear term. Members remaining on the board are Stephen Goldberg, Steve Holman, Daniel Kerbel, Danny Lipson, Leslie Miller, Daniel Phillips, Pam Sacherman, Scott Slovin and Sarita Zilch. John Youkilis and Gary Smith rotated off the board.

Youkilis and Smith were both given special recognition for their time as board members. “My heart will always be with JFS,” Smith said. Youkilis agreed and added that he supports the agency because “Jewish Family Service always deals with reality on the ground.” Many awards were presented during the evening. » The Miriam Dettelbach Award was presented to Larry Juran and Danny Lipson. This award is given in honor of the first executive director of Jewish Family Service as recognition of exceptional volunteer service to the agency. Both board members were instrumental in turning the Barbash Family Vital Support Center from a dream into a reality. » On behalf of the Jewish Federation of Cincinnati, its CEO Shep Englander accepted a plaque

recognizing its support of Jewish Family Service over the past 70 years. » Scott Slovin, representing Friends of Bigs & Littles, presented 15year-old Tianna Woodford with a $1,000 check as the recipient of the Betty R. Goldberg Community Service Award. This award was established in honor of the long-time Executive Director of Big Brothers Big Sisters Association and recognizes a Little who helps others by performing good deeds and acts of kindness. Woodford, who attends Purcell Marian, received the award for her involvement in various community service activities. » Awards were also presented to Jewish Family Service staff recognizing years they have been with the agency. Angie Bowling, Erin McNew and Sue Warm received a five-year Staff Longevity Award. Dora Baehner,

Edie Dine, Fran Gafvert and Ruth Moeddel were recipients of the 10-year award. In her executive director report Beth Schwartz said, “I am proud of Jewish Family Service’s ability to step it up to serve the 4,707 individual lives in 2012. This has been a tremendous increase in the number of people who are helped by this agency. With the staff as the backbone of the services we provide, and the Board’s support and direction, we can continue to grow into our vision of the agency we wish to become.” She took a moment from the public meeting to speak directly to the JFS staff, urging them to dream big and to believe in their ability to truly change the lives of the people that they serve and to strengthen our community with an even deeper impact. She implored staff, board members and community members to partner with Jewish Family Service on this transformative journey saying, “We can’t do it alone. So let’s do it together as a community and show everyone how We Give A…” The meeting closed with all attendees given a marker and a paper frame with the “I GIVE A…too!” tagline. They were asked to draw themselves into the Jewish Family Service story and to become a part of the agency’s vision. The drawings will be hung on a display in the lobby of the Mayerson JCC.
