Skirt Game parking changed By Heidi Fallon

The possible closing of the Delhi Road entrance into the Delhi Township Park is changing parking plans for the Friday, Aug. 6, Delhi Skirt Game. Clyde Kober, co-chairman of the Skirt Game Committee, said he’s gotten help from the township police department and its Citizen Police Association to come up with a shuttle bus route. “We don’t know for sure that the park entrance will be closed with the pike project,” Kober said, “so, we’re planning ahead. “Even if that entrance is open, the plan we’ve designed will make it much easier for folks wanting to come to the game.’ The plan, Kober said, is for three specific spots for folks to park and hop on one of two buses being provided by Klug Bus Service. Those stops will be at: • the former Thriftway store in the Del-Fair Shopping Center, Anderson Ferry and Delhi roads; • the Delhi Plaza Shopping Center, 4978 Delhi Road; and • Shiloh United Methodist Church, Foley and Anderson Ferry roads. The buses will drop off passengers at the park with golf carts available to take folks to the venue, if needed. “The buses will run from 6 p.m. with the last run at 9 p.m.,” Kober said. “Returning folks to their cars will begin 15 to 30 minutes after the fireworks with the last run at 11:30 p.m. if needed.”


Going over the latest parking plans for the Aug. 6 Delhi Skirt Game are, from left, Tom Winkler, president of the Delhi Township Citizens Police Association; Lt. Jeff Braun and Clyde Kober, Skirt Game co-chairman. He said there is limited parking at the Delhi Township Park, which the Citizen Police Association volunteers will direct.

This year’s High School Prom Night theme game will be between the Delhi Athletic Association and the Delhisian All-

stars. Following the game, there will be entertainment including karaoke and fireworks.

The Tuesday, Aug. 3, annual National Night Out again will be celebrated in conjunction with the final concert of the summer series in the park. The Delhi Civic Association is hosting its last concert featuring Chuck Brisbin and the

Tuna Project. The band will entertain from 6:30-9:30 p.m. During the concert, the Delhi Township fire and police departments will be on hand with demonstrations and equipment displays. There also will be food and beverages to purchase. Folks also can bring their own picnic dinners, lawn chairs and blankets. It’s the 27th annual National Night Out

designed to bring neighbors together and provide education and awareness about law enforcement. Parking is available in the Delhi Township Park, 5125 Foley Road, and the lot adjacent the lake.

Oak Hills student designs water feature By Heidi Fallon

Matt Dietrich found a way use the skills he’s learned helping his dad to add a bit of whimsy to the Delhi Township Floral Paradise Gardens. Dietrich, 17, designed and built a water feature at the park including a waterfall and pond. The Oak Hills High School senior has been a member of Boy Scout Troop 483 at St. Dominic Church since he was a Cub Scout. “Being in Scouting has helped me learn to be a better person,” Dietrich said, “and I think it will help me in the future. “I really like the camping part, meeting people and making new friends.” Dietrich had help on his project from his dad, Bob, who owns Creative Scapes, a township

landscaping firm. “I only helped,” Mr. Dietrich said. “He designed the whole thing. “We’re very proud of him. It was quite a project.” Sandy Monahan, township parks and recreation director, said she was thrilled when Dietrich came to her with the idea. “We’ve had people telling us that something like this was missing from the gardens, but we never had the funds to do it ourselves. “Matt did a wonderful job and it’s a beautiful asset to Floral Paradise Gardens.” Joan Gillispie, horticulturist for Monahan’s department, said native plants will be added to enhance Dietrich’s work. Dietrich said his fellow Scouts, his parents – Bob and Peggy – friends and family helped him a

Delhi businesses add to pike improvements By Heidi Fallon

The Delhi Business Association is doing its part to make the Delhi Road improvement project a success. Mike Mierke, association president, said the group of business owners and employees, is donating a $5,000 water feature to

the new entrance of Delhi Township Park. “We’re really donating it to the community,” Mierke said with blueprint in hand. “It will have a water spray, water fall with recycled water, landscaping and is designed to be low maintenance.” The township is expected to agree to take on those

maintenance duties. Designed and being built by Premier Landscaping, the water feature will be directly in front of the restaurant adjacent the park entrance. “The park is a main feature of Delhi Township with an entrance in the middle of the business district,” Mierke said. “We want the commu-


nity, as well as those visiting the township and the park, to know that the park is our baby. “We want people to see the beauty that will be the new entrance to the park and the park itself.” The association will sell brick pavers it hopes people will buy to add to the water feature and help defray the expenses. The bricks will cost $50 and can be engraved with individual’s names, families, groups and organizations. Construction of the water feature is expected to be begin in conjunction with the road project. The project on Delhi Road, from Greenwell Avenue to Anderson Ferry Road, includes paving, changes in curb cuts, plus changing the Anderson Ferry Road intersection. Township Administrator Gary Schroeder said no lanes will be added at that intersection.

While Short was convicted of molesting just one victim, authorities insist there are many more who wouldn’t cooperate or come forward because of the shame and embarrassment of being involved in a homosexual act. Two of those Assistant Prosecutor Katie Burroughs said were victims were in court for today’s sentencing. The mother of one told the judge she was unaware of her son’s abuse until eight months ago. The victim who testified at the trial earlier this month said he was 12 in 1988 when his coach – Short –

began providing him drugs and alcohol to get him drunk or Short high and then began engaging in sex acts with him. That included showing up at the victim’s bedroom in the middle of the night for drugs, drink and sex. It continued for five years. Short also was accused of molesting many male family members. Short’s lawyers asked that he be allowed to remain free while the conviction is appealed. Hamilton County Common Pleas Court Judge Dennis Helmick ordered Short held on a $1 million cash bond pending the appeal. That means Short can be released if he or someone posts $1 million in cash. Helmick ruled that Short, as a sex offender, also must report his address to authorities for the rest of his life.

Cafe Bayley reopens with more choices

Deb Cordrey and Gina Torbeck share a drink at the newly opened Cafe Bayley.

“We want people to think of Cafe Bayley as another Delhi restaurant,” said the cafe’s manager Deb Cordrey. Cafe Bayley, near Bayley Place on Farrell Court, reopened July 12. The small cafe sits inside the Wellness Community Center and is open to the public, not just the residents of Bayley Place. “We are part of the West Side community,” said Kathy Baker, director of Eldermount Adult Day Program. The new cafe features a healthier, more upscale American bistro type menu. The new menu offers more extensive choices. One special menu item is Cordrey’s own recipe she calls Chili 4:4, named after the biblical passage

Matthew 4:4. “The passage says, ‘Man does not live on bread alone,’” Cordrey said. “Our chili is all meat, no beans.” Chili 4:4 is a hearty, meaty recipe that differs from traditional Texas style chili. Cafe Bayley serves the chili by itself or in its walking tacos. The cafe first closed in March. Cordrey signed on as manager in May and has been developing the new menu ever since. “There are still a couple things I might add,” Cordrey said. “I want to see how everything flies. If something isn’t working I will get rid of it.” Cordrey also makes the humus, cookies, muffins, and gravy for french fries and gravy featured on the menu.

“French fries and gravy is a Canadian favorite. I’m originally from Canada so I’m bringing that with me,” Cordrey said. Cordrey eventually plans to make all the bread used in the cafe. Other unique menu items are the 1950s classics – the monte cristo sandwich and wedge salad. Cordrey has brought a new life to the cafe with her revamped menu. “I see an excitement coming here,” Baker said. “I hear a lot of people saying they can’t wait for it to open.” The cafe will now have longer business hours from 10:30 a.m. -2:30 p.m. and serve breakfast all day. Their new menu is budget conscious with most items under $6.

Volunteers from St. Joseph United Methodist Church, St. Joseph, Ill., volunteered at Wesley Community Services in an effort to kick off a six-week summer program. The program, Awaken the City, is coordinated through Hyde Park Community United Methodist Church. “Volunteers really helped out in a variety of areas” said Stephen Smookler, executive director, Wesley Community Services. Mark Harris, pastor, Hunter Harris and Steve Thompsen moved furniture and equipment to make room for Wesley’s new Meals-On-Wheels distribution area. John Kraps, associate pastor, Judith Howdyshell, Steve Warns and Ed Warns volunteered with Meals-OnWheels preparation. In addition, they called

Road work to cause viaduct ramp closures The Cincinnati Department of Transportation and Engineering will begin street rehabilitation work on the upper deck of the Western Hills Viaduct. Ramp closures and work began this week. Phase 1 is anticipated to take until the end of August. The city’s contractor, the Great Lakes Construction Co., will replace expansion joints, perform concrete repairs on the bridge deck and walks, and replace the existing asphalt. Construction on this project will occur in three phases: • Phase 1 – The north lanes on the upper deck will be closed except portions at the west end and the north ramp from the lower deck will be closed for a portion of this phase. • Phase 2 – The center lanes on the upper deck near the west plaza will be closed. • Phase 3 – The south lanes on the upper deck will be closed. Detours will be posted as necessary and the following traffic restrictions apply: • Upper Deck – One 11foot lane will be maintained in each direction at all times. The upper deck will be closed to pedestrian traffic during construction in the south lanes. • Lower deck – All lanes will be open between 6-9 a.m. and 4-6 p.m., Monday through Friday, and during non-working hours. During work hours, one 11-foot lane will be maintained in each direction at all times. • The north ramp from the lower deck to Queen City Avenue will be closed on a date to be determined for 30 days. • The ramp from southbound I-75 to the lower deck will be closed on some date to be determined for four separate weekends. • The ramp from northbound I-75 to the upper deck will be closed at some date to be determined for 120 days. • Spring Grove Avenue – All lanes will be open from

7-9 a.m. and 4-6 p.m., Monday through Friday, and during all non-working hours. One 11-foot lane will be maintained in each direction during working hours. • Northbound Harrison Avenue (ramp from State Avenue to Viaduct) will be closed on some date to be determined for up to 120 days. • Southbound Harrison Avenue (ramp from Viaduct to State Avenue) will have an 11-foot lane open at all times. • All lanes on State

Avenue will remain open at all times. • The center ramp from the lower deck to Harrison Avenue will remain open at all times. The Department of Transportation and Engineering was awarded $1,100,600 by the Ohio Public Works Commission (OPWC) for this project. The OPWC provides grants and loans for local governments to build and maintain their infrastructure through the State Capital Improvement and the Local Transportation Improvement

programs. Roads, bridges, culverts, water supply, wastewater systems, storm water collection and solid waste facilities are eligible for assistance. Local governments apply for funding through one of the nineteen District Public Works Integrating Committees in Ohio. Drivers are encouraged to reduce their speed and use caution when approaching the construction area. For more about the Department of Transportation and Engineering, visit: www.

Kyle Ralph opines on high school football What do you think about the national attention created by Sign ing Day and college recruiting in general? “Signing Day, to me, is what has become the ruination of high school football. I absolutely cannot stand it. And I went through it myself, where you’ve got a whole lot of schools looking at you, you’ve got a lot of offers on the table, and they’re all trying to get you to visit. And I’m only a couple years removed from it. When I was a sophomore (at St. X) and starting the recruiting process, and and things like that were literally just getting off ground. It was simple, it was short and it was to the point. They wanted to see what your interests were, and then they left you alone. Every couple weeks they’d call you for updates, and that was it. By the time I was a senior, you’re getting called weekly by these websites, they’ve got your whole profile on there – your 40-yard-dash time, pictures of you that you didn’t know existed from games and combines, every scholarship offer you have – and it just became overwhelming. I can remember getting on the Internet when I ended up choosing to not go to Ohio State, and people were just blowing me up and bashing me. I remember being a high school kid and thinking, This is insane. It’s to the point now where it’s a multi-million dollar business, and these kids are just being exploited by these companies for money.”

What do you dislike about the actual Signing Day? “Tom Lemming’s Signing Day is absolutely the most ridiculous, non-ethical thing. Kids are picking up a (school’s) hat and dropping it and switching hats and moving hats and putting this hat on and that hat on, and they end up decommitting and having another press conference to pick their next school. And you know what? Pick a school. Get over yourself. You know were you want to go. Don’t play the games. This isn’t your 15 minutes of fame right now. You’re getting used and abused on national television (to announce what college you’re going to). You know where you want to go. Be responsible, and pick it. The whole recruiting circuit hypes it up because it gives (these players) front-page coverage and they send cameras to the school. It’s just a continual cycle. When you go to college, how big a recruit you were, how many schools offered you a scholarship, how many cameras were on you at your press conference, means absolutely nothing. They’re giving these kids false senses of (importance), and as soon as you go to college, it’s absolutely meaningless. And with and, you’re worthless to them now. As soon as your time is finished, they’re moving on to the next recruit. It’s just gotten to be so absolutely insane. It’s creating

egos that, when these kids go to college, they’re just going to get checked by the older guys that are there, and they have no clue what’s waiting for them.”

Looking at high school recruiting, there are a lot of accusations made each year that certain schools – typically private schools – recruit. How credible are these accusations? “I went to public schools my whole life (except for high school). Now that I coach, I can see how hypocritical public schools can be with recruiting because public schools, as far as I know, actually recruit to keep their kids in the public school district and will actually (get kids from other districts to move into their district to play). I’m not going to say who does that, but I do know for a fact that there are schools in this city that send their people out to other districts and talk to kids, call their parents on the phone and try to get them to move into their district. Now, the one thing I will say on the defense of that – to both public and private schools – is that the greatest recruiter in this world is success. Success brings you kids. X, Elder, Moeller, Colerain – those types of schools, even if they did recruit, they don’t have to because kids want to go there. Success breeds success. It’s that simple.” Why do you think recruiting accusations are so rampant? “For a lot of people, it’s a scapegoat for their frustrations. Colerain gets who they get. If you don’t live in (their) district, you don’t play for Colerain High School. You just don’t. You can’t. You’re not allowed to. You can’t bus some kid in from Sycamore to play for Colerain. St. X and Elder had a lot of success in the 2000s, and (a lot of people said), ‘What do you expect? They recruit and we don’t. We can’t beat them. How can a Dayton school beat St. X? How can a Dayton school beat Elder? We get what’s in our district, and they recruit kids from all over Cincinnati.’ It’s just a really easy thing to blame (your struggles) on, and it’s not really always true.” Over the last decade, we’ve also seen the rise of supplements, steroids and performance-enhanc ing drugs in general. Did you ever feel pressured to use anything in high school? “No coach ever approached us and told us to take a single thing. Supplements really weren’t (around) before 2000. Going into my senior year, creatine had just hit the market, and research came out saying it wasn’t harmful for your body. Personally, I didn’t use it. I’d say 85 percent of my senior



Kyle Ralph (third row, center) is responsible for offensive linemen on the Oak Hills High School football team. Among them are (first row, from left): sophomore A.J. Moser, junior Cody Harris, sophomore Gus Carpenter, sophomore Cody Jent and senior Ben Porter; (second row, from left): juniors Jake Urban, Bobby Dennis, Zach Meyer and Chris Hilton; (third row, from left): juniors Dustin Ross, Derrek Ross, Caleb Stacey and Jon Fisher. your body and how to treat your body is just so far above and beyond what it used to be even eight years ago.”

THE AFTERMATH class didn’t use it – or anything else. But there were some kids who did use creatine. It’s legal, and they wanted to see if it would work. That was something completely unique to my junior and senior year. That stuff started popping up.” Did that 15 percent make its creatine use known to the coach es? “A couple of them said something. Once the coaches found out, (they instructed the kids) to see a trainer or doctor to find out how to responsibly take it.” Do you think coaches can tell when a kid is using something? “I think you’d be naive to not notice a kid’s body change. Having gone through playing sports, it’s really easy to see when kids have started doing something different, especially when you’re around a kid for a year and then he miraculously looks different in two months. But it’s a difficult thing to ask. If you say something to him, and he’s been doing it naturally, you’re kind of putting the kid down a little bit by saying, ‘There’s no way you did that by yourself. You had to have help from something.’ That’s kind of a slap in the face. So it’s definitely not an easy situation for coaches, but I don’t think they’d turn a blind eye to it. All you can do is advise them to do the right thing.” What percentage of football players at the big schools – Colerain, Elder, St. X, etc. – do you think are using some sort of supplement? “I would say 20 to 25 percent.” Do you think some people would consider that a low estimate? “I think it probably would shock a lot of people. You look out there on the fields today – even since I played high school, and we had a pretty big team – and you see the size of these kids and (you wonder), ‘Where are these kids even coming from?’ It’s amazing how big the kids have gotten even since I played. But much like the recruiting thing is a very quick scapegoat for why you lose a game, I think supplements are a very quick scapegoat for why kids are so big now. What if the kid just works hard? With the weight room advancements and the technology advancements we’ve had, the knowledge of how to recover

Do you think a lot of kids feel pressure to use supplements these days to increase their odds of a college scholarship? “Yeah, I think part of it is the combine stuff, continually having to test your bench press and your (vertical jump) and your 40-time. There are so many kids today – and I really dislike this – who go to personal trainers for this and that. That’s not what high school football is all about. High school football is about going to work out with your buddies and the mental toughness and the sweat in the weight room. It isn’t about going to a personal trainer and working on your starts for a 40-yard dash.” How important are these com bine numbers to colleges? “At the end of the day, college football comes down to one really simple thing: Can you play the game or not? Because no one really cares how fast you run a 40. No one really cares about how much you bench press. Coaches want to know: Can you go out and block somebody for 75 plays a game? Can you throw a ball on the money on a slant route? Can you beat a guy deep on a fly pattern? It’s that simple. And all these things of testing bench and testing 40 and Nike combines and Nike SPARQ training and all that type of garbage is just pushing these kids to do things that, quite honestly, don’t even relate to football. They have absolutely no relation to the game whatsoever. I would much rather watch film on a kid for two hours to find out if he’s a football player than go to some stupid combine and watch him run up and down a controlled environment on a field for 40 yards. That’s just worthless to me. But that’s what these kids have to buy into, because if you want to get recruited, you have to go to the combine things; you have to go to Nike this and Under Armour that. It’s just ridiculous. And again, it’s a very minimal investment for these companies to get a huge benefit for their company in the long run. They’re just exploiting these high school kids. It’s ridiculous because these kids have to drop through hoops and make sacrifices money-wise.” Do you think high school athletes should be using supple ments, even if their parents are OK with it? “I don’t think they should. A lot of the stuff is still so new right now that you don’t know what it does to you in the long run. When I was in school, the big thing was creatine. And it was so new at that point, (experts) didn’t really know what the long-term effects would be. They knew in the short- and medium-term that everything seemed to be OK. By the time I got

About this series This is the final installment of a four-part series on local football product Kyle Ralph. The first three parts focused on the ups and downs of Ralph’s playing days; the 2002 St. Xavier High School graduate was among the most-prized offensive line recruits in the country as a senior, starred at the University of North Carolina and garnered interest from several NFL teams before walking away from the game in 2006. Now a history teacher and assistant football coach at Oak Hills High School, Ralph offers in this piece his candid opinions regarding several hot-button issues facing high school football today. Ralph, 25, lives in White Oak with his wife, Ashley, and four-month-old son, Kaeden. out of college – that’s only four years later – they were saying that long uses of creatine, or even a couple of those big cycles, teaches your body to stop producing it on its own. Your body naturally produces creatine, so first of all, why do you need so much more of it? Your body will literally shut off that mechanism, and if you ever want to build muscle mass up again, you have to have that naturally produced creatine in your body. So essentially you have to either keep taking it or eat insane amounts of meat, poultry or fish. It’s a dangerous world to play around in. It’s not anabolic steroids or anything like that; you’re not going to get those side effects. But it’s still dangerous.” What’s the one piece of advice you always tell your players? “The one thing I tell anyone who plays for me is summed up by John Wooden in one of my favorite chapters of his book (Wooden: A Lifetime of Observations and Reflections on and off the Court ). He says something like, ‘Sometimes I was building a Cadillac, and sometimes I was building a Ford. If it was a Cadillac, my job was to make sure we had the best Cadillac out there, and if it was a Ford, that we had the best Ford out there. My job is not to make a Ford into a Cadillac.’ That is exactly what I preach to my players. I tell them that if you agree to be part of this group of offensive linemen, then you are choosing to be part of a group of excellence. No matter what your potential is, I am going to get the best out of you. That is the standard I hold, and that is not negotiable. If you want to be part of this offensive line you will be pushed to the limits and you will give me your best – just as I give you mine. I know I am not getting Cadillac athletes, but I will take a Ford any day of the week and make it the best darn Ford I can. And that is good enough for me.” Tony Meale is a sports reporter for The Community Press. You can reach him at or 853-6271.%

Thanks Liberty Riverside

It isn’t often we hear great things about nursing homes, but my family would like to take this opportunity to thank the staff at Liberty Nursing Center in Riverside for the wonderful care they gave to my dad, Joe Lasita, during his stay there. My dad was placed in hospice care at this facility and the staff managed to make this as pleasant an experience as possible for both my dad and our entire family. Their genuine compassion was seen by all who visited and we will always be eternally grateful to them for making my dad’s last days as comfortable as possible.

The pantry is in need of new coolers, freezers, food and van repairs, and now has sustained a financial loss for sign and food expenditures. Although informed by school staff of the effective field drainage, they were advised the morning of the event it was canceled due to the possibility of rain and risk to the field. This action was taken although the fields are to be replaced in August. Despite the fact it rained later in the day, the event could have still been held without the game. I realize Oak Hills has a responsibility to maintain its facilities, but they need to be reminded that it is not owned by the school but by the

First Kroger downtown

In Wednesday’s Press dated July 21, there was and article about Sayler Park having an mural showing snapshots from the past done by the Cincinnati ArtWorks. It stated the mural was painted on what was the first Kroger store in Cincinnati. That is not true. The first Kroger store opened up in 1883 at 66 E. Pearl St. in downtown Cincinnati. All you have to do is go online to the first Kroger store in Cincinnati and look at their historic time line and you will get the information that I just told you.

Delhi fiscal officer says good-bye

In September 2010, The Delhi Township Fire Department will commemorate the 75th Anniversary of the department, formerly Delhi Volunteer Fire Department. In recognition of the sacrifices of our former members made to establish fire protection in our community and how the organization developed into what it is today; we have combed through the meeting minutes to find interesting historical events that have occurred since 1935. Each month we would like to share a small excerpt of facts taken from our history, and encourage our community to come in and visit the Delhi Fire Museum. The museum is funded through private and corporate donations, and independently run by the Delhi Historical Fire Museum Society. It is open to the public during normal business hours and after hours by appointment. July 16, 1935: Secretary Al Lockhorn suggested that we formulate plans for the erection of a fire department house in the near future. Chairman Joe Lampe appointed a committee consisting of Richard Linneman, Rudy Kusar ,Joe Lipps, Joe Steinkamp and Wendel Ohmer and instructed them to look over a suitable location for a fire house and draw up plans for the building and submit their recommendations at the next monthly meeting. July 19, 1955: Assistant Chief Bill Henghold made a motion that a committee be appointed to look for property for another firehouse in the eastern portion of Delhi. Chief Kusar appoints a committee consisting of Harry Kallmeyer, Rudy Kusar, Bill Henghold, Harry Sehlhorst and Joe Kammer. An advertisement in the community paper is to be placed asking Delhi citizens about any available property for sale for a new firehouse. This is the first public acknowl-

July 16, 1960: At the regular monthly business meeting, a motion by Joe Kammer, seconded by Don Deller, that the department purchase a new “Cadillac” ambulance. A committee consisting of Don Deller, Bill Henghold, Fred Sabin, Harry Sehlhorst and Pete Sehlhorst is formed. July 19, 1977: Assistant Chief Ken Lipps reported that the new “Hurst” tool, also known as the “Jaws of Life” has been delivered and training will start immediately. This is ground breaking in design using hydraulic technology to assist fire service personnel and EMS crews in extricating people from severely damaged vehicles resulting from collisions. At a special meeting held on July 24, 1978, at Station 1 on Neeb Road, President John Schill presided. The purpose of this meeting is to discuss the paramedic issue with reference to applying for CETA funding or not. At 8 p.m. Trustee Jerome Luebbers and Dave Schwier, a representative of CETA, entered the meeting to talk to the membership and answer any questions. Schwier addressed the members and explained many facets of the CETA program and its funding. This program was to save the taxpayers' money on instituting this program. The paramedic program was instituted in 1979. The first members to become certified as paramedics for the Delhi Fire Department were Terry Baker, Don Childs, John Cusick, Bill Needles, Roger Klug, Charlie Ruffner and John Schill. Pete Pritchard is a part-time Delhi Township firefighter and curator of the department’s museum.

This was prepared for Ken Ryan’s last meeting. Tonight marks my final meeting as Delhi Township fiscal officer. It has truly been an honor to serve the residents of Delhi as clerk/fiscal officer the past 15 years (hard to believe it has been that long!). During my tenure, I have had the opportunity to meet many of our residents and have enjoyed many conversations explaining the financial affairs of our township. From the bond issuance for the construction of the new firehouses in the early 2000s to the eventual passage of critical police/fire operating levies a few years later, my tenure has been both rewarding and challenging. I am so very grateful to all my friends and relatives who have steadfastly supported my election

campaigns and my daily service. There is no way to properly express my appreciation to each of you. But especially to my parents, sister Ken Ryan and brother, and Community to my wife Beth and three fanPress guest tastic children columnist (Kyle, Marc and Colleen), I could not have done this without you. Thank you! As a resident, I thank the employees of Delhi for your continual dedicated service to our community. You are truly the best! What I will miss most is my daily interaction with you. Space does not permit me to properly thank each with whom I have

Executive order on abortion is working Only a few months since the president signed the new health reform law, it is already clear that our work to prevent the use of taxpayer dollars for abortion is paying off. Before the House of Representatives cast its final vote for health care reform, I worked with other pro-life Democrats to secure a commitment from the president to sign an executive order clarifying and enforcing long-standing law banning the use of federal funds for abortion services. Even though executive orders carry the full force of law, opponents of reform who wanted to see the law fail have used the issue of abortion to launch political attacks, claiming that the executive order wasn’t worth the paper it was written on. Now that the executive order has been put to its first test, however, it’s clear that it is working precisely as promised. Earlier this month, concerns arose that state-run high-risk insurance pools in Pennsylvania and New Mexico could possibly cover elective abortion services. In response to these concerns, the U.S. Department of Health and

Human Services (HHS) issued this clear and unequivocal statement: “As is the case with (Federal Employee Health Benefit) Steve plans currently, Driehaus and with the Care Community Affordable Act and the Press guest president’s relatcolumnist ed Executive Order more generally, in Pennsylvania and in all other states abortions will not be covered in the Pre-existing Condition Insurance Plan (PCIP) except in the cases of rape or incest, or where the life of the woman would be endangered.” While some pro-life groups distorted the situation in order to mislead the public, the facts simply aren’t on their side. According to the Associated Press, opponents of abortion have “scored a victory,” and the Catholic bishops welcomed the HHS announcement. On the other hand, NARAL Pro-Choice America, a leading

worked these past 15 years. However, I do want to specifically recognize Beth Autenrieb and the late Ginny McQuaide (assistants to the fiscal officer), and Joe Morency and Gary Schroeder (township administrators). Thank you for your support, guidance and patience. It has truly been a pleasure. Finally, to the residents of this great community, thank you so very much for providing me with this wonderful opportunity to serve you. I have gained so much more from this position than I have ever been able give back. Delhi is an awesome place and I am so very honored and privileged to have played a small part in its growth and success. Thank you! Ken Ryan is the Delhi Township fiscal officer.

advocate for access to abortion services, called the decision “wrongheaded.” I made a commitment to ensure that no federal tax dollars would be used for abortion. That’s why I fought so hard for an executive order that is consistent with pro-life values. There were doubts whether the executive order was strong enough to restrict that funding. With this application of the executive order, those doubts can be put to rest. The reform that I supported protects the unborn, and will support and foster the health and security of millions of others. That is a true success for a pro-life agenda that promotes life from conception until natural death. As more and more states implement high-risk pools, and as other provisions of the Affordable Care Act are implemented, the recent decision by HHS sets an important precedent and inspires confidence that health care reform protects the sanctity of life at all stages.

What you’ll feel when a close relationship ends It’s said a most precious situation in life occurs when we are able to achieve three important things: to love someone; to have this someone love me; and to have both these things happen at the same time. We smile and knowingly admit, “Yes, but it doesn’t always happen this way.” In his book, “To Love and Be Loved,” Sam Keen relates a crucial time in his life. He was a young man in college and in love with a girl who said she loved him. They often discussed, and really believed, that their relationship was destined for a lifelong journey of bliss. Then, he writes, “In April, the cruelest of months, she came for the spring dance, and after the last waltz, sudden as death, she told me she didn’t love me anymore… “When she left, I collapsed into grief and incomprehension. I never heard from her again. No letter. No calls. No explanations … All meaning, delight and promise seemed to have vanished from my life.” Millions of people can empathize with his feelings.

And whether it happens when we’re young or old, it’s always painful. We never want it to happen again. Numbed by our grief, we often resort to one of the following defenses. 1. Pessimism: we conclude we’re unlovable, people are untrustworthy, or we decide love is an illusion and try to protect ourselves from loving again. 2. Pseudoromanticism: we engage in sex for merely selfish purposes, play at being romantic or pretend we love another – but cut and run when things get too serious. That way, we’re never hurt, our ego is soothed, and the pain happens to someone else. It’s sort of a revenge for what happened to us. 3. Pragmatism: We settle for platonic or practical relationships, avoid intense expressions of romance, and relate as a good friend rather than lover. At times of hurt, disillusionment or cynicism, we see no wisdom in the centuriesold adage: “Tis better to have loved and lost, than never to have loved at all.” Heartaches, though never

sought, are part of human existence. When they happen to us they seem devoid of any good aspect, they’re only catastrophic. It takes time to grasp the bigger picture of our lives. We can’t see how the relational suffering in our lives accomplishes anything but a broken heart. Only later do we dare admit that they often can have some benefit for us: they open unrevealed places in our hearts, create compassion for others, and give birth to a greater wisdom about ourselves, life and the real meaning of love. Ernest Hemingway stated a great truth when he wrote, “Life breaks everyone, and afterward, many are strong in the broken places.” Those are just some of the reasons why it is better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all. Yet there is even a greater reason. Though we may lose the one we love, we have still accomplished what many yearn for but do not savor. For anytime we genuinely love, we are a magnificent success both spiritually and

psychologically. As Rilke attests, “For one human being to love another human being: that is perhaps the most difficult task that has been entrusted to us, the ultimate test, the final test and proof, the work for which all other work is preparatory.” The challenge to every human is to love. If our love is not returned, our call still remains. As Dr. James Hollis puts it: “The great rhythm of gain and loss is outside our control; what remains within our control is the attitude of willingness to find, in even the bitterest losses, what remains to be lived.” Father Lou Guntzelman is a Catholic priest of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati.

‘Chow’ down on local cathedral chef’s recipes There are a lot of cookbooks brought to my attention to review. Joanne “Giovanna� Delli Carpini Trimpe’s “Holy Chow� really stands out in the stack. Giovanna is the chef at St. Peter in Chains Cathedral in downtown Cincinnati and is the author of this book, thus the name. The book itself is vibrant with color and reflects Giovanna’s unorthodox approach to cooking. “The hardest thing about the book was having to measure everything,� she told me. She has been cooking since she was 14 and never measured, just cooked “to taste� like many of us. Career-wise, she worked for family, doing accounting. “I did not like that,� she told me. Her interest in food

led to catering and volunteering for school dinners a n d church events. Rita Giovanna Heikenfeld has a rich cooking Rita’s kitchen b a c k ground, having lived in Italy, Venezuela and in the U.S. Her passion for good food made with love has become legendary here in our area, and that led her to the job she currently occupies at St. Peter’s. So how did she get the job? Her husband, Mike, working on his master’s in lay ministry, invited Deacon

Giovanna Trimpe’s Chicken Marsala

Prepare chicken:


Rita’s version of chicken Marsala over whole-wheat spaghetti. David Klingshirn to dinner. He told her their chef was leaving and that she should apply. The book itself is an interesting read, with stories and Bible quotes (from her husband) that go along with each recipe. It is available online at or by calling 513-295-2510.

Use 4 chicken breasts pounded thin, to about 1 inch. Sprinkle 1⠄2 teaspoon each kosher salt and 1⠄2 teaspoon freshly cracked pepper on chicken. Put 1 cup all-purpose flour in a bowl and dip chicken in to cover both sides. Shake off excess. Put 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil in large skillet on medium heat. Add 3 cloves chopped garlic and cook to light brown; don’t burn. Add 1⠄2 teaspoon each kosher salt and freshly cracked pepper. Add chicken. Don’t crowd. Cook each side for three minutes. Add another teaspoon of olive oil if necessary.

Prepare sauce:


Brion P. Moran, M.D. was born in Cincinnati and graduated from St. Xavier High School where he played football and basketball. He attended Xavier University and received his medical degree from Wright State University School of Medicine. He completed his internship in general surgery and his residency in orthopaedic surgery at Southern Illinois University School of Medicine in Springfield Illinois. Dr Moran started in Northern Kentucky 7½ years ago practicing general orthopaedics but is now very excited to move his practice back to his hometown. Dr Moran is a great addition to the practice as he and Dr Gallagher share the idea of treating the entire family with respect and kindness. Dr Gallagher is very excited for all patients to get to know his new partner. Dr Moran can treat all injuries and/or orthopaedic issues. His interests include but are not limited to total joint replacements and sports medicine.

Take chicken out of skillet and add 1 cup fresh mushrooms or a 7-ounce can. Cook one to two minutes. Then on simmering heat add 3 â „4 cup Marsala wine. Loosen residue and add 1 â „4 cup fresh chopped flat leaf parsley and 1â „2 cup mascarpone cheese. Whisk until melted, about three minutes. Taste and add salt or wine. Add 2 tablespoons water if too thick.

Prepare final chicken:

Put chicken back in sauce and cook on simmer for five minutes. Flip occasionally and just before removing pour 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice over. Take chicken out and add 1⠄4 cup water and whisk again on high for 15 seconds to deglaze the sauce and make it smoother. Pour over chicken when served – use a rubber spatula to get all the sauce out. Good with rice, potatoes, fettuccine Alfredo.

Update on radio rolls

Tom Heitkamp, a Mount Lookout reader, made the recipe that he sent me from a website. They turned out well, though he doesn’t know if they’re authentic. The glaze was a disappointment, however, so we’re working on that part. I checked with Rose Levy Beranbaum, the queen of baking, and she has never heard of these rolls. Does anybody know of a bakery here that still sells them?

Rita’s pasta with Pecorino Romano and arugula

The arugula in my herb garden is still producing like crazy, though with the heat it is becoming a bit hotter in flavor.


Local chef Joanne “Giovanna� Delli Carpini Trimpe wrote a cookbook titled “Holy Chow.� 12 oz. or so pasta, boiled 1 stick butter or substitute 2 nice cloves chopped garlic (optional) Romano cheese, grated – about 2 cups Salt and pepper to taste Arugula – a few handfuls, chopped (go to taste, using less than you think you want at first) Reserved pasta water, about 2 cups Toss hot pasta with butter and garlic. Sprinkle in a little over half the cheese, salt and pepper, and just enough of the reserved water to make a sauce. If you need more water, add it. Add arugula, mix and serve, garnished with rest of cheese. Rita Nader Heikenfeld is an herbalist, educator and author. E-mail columns@community with “Rita’s kitchen� in the subject line.

Cincinnati Zoo going green with wind The Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden recently unveiled its newest energy source – the Windspire wind turbine. The 30-foot-tall turbine was installed in the Zoo’s Go Green Garden to help power the ticketing and membership building. Along with the solar panels in the Go Green Garden, the turbine will meet approximately one-fourth of

all of the power demands for the building. “The zoo is a natural champion of environmental sustainability,� said Walt Borland, Windspire Energy CEO & president. “We are excited that the Windspire will now be a part of their efforts to demonstrate how easy it is for any us to help protect our most important habitat – Planet Earth.�

Considered a relatively small wind turbine, it provides a low-cost, safe and energy-efficient method for harnessing power from the wind. It produces approximately 2,000 kilowatt hours per year in 12 milesper-hour average winds. To learn more about how you can “Go Green,� log on to and click on “Saving the Earth.�
