Dog will help patrol hallways Oak Hills purchases pup for security

By Monica Boylson

Green Twp. — Oak Hills High School has a new employee. The school district purchased Atticus, a black Dutch Shepherd dog, who will help patrol the halls and parking lot of high school five days a week. The 8-month-old puppy can sniff out drugs and firearms and is trained to bite an attacker. “We came up with the idea after the Sandy Hook shootings,” said Mark Gomer, owner and trainer at American Success Dog Training. “I approached the school district and they loved the idea.” Gomer said he has a vested

interest in the school district as three of his children go to school there. “This, to my knowledge, this is the first time this has ever been done,” he said. “This could change the way that schools protect their kids and keep every body safe from here on out.” The district will pay $10,000 for the dog from the permanent improvement fund which pays for items such as security. The district will pay $5,000 in fiscal year 2014 which started July 1 and another $5,000 will be paid in fiscal year 2015. The money includes payment for Atticus, his training so far and continuous training over the next two years. The guard dog learned short commands in German. “The commands are commands that people wouldn’t

normally know and they’re sharper,” he said. “We’re able to condition these bites and have a dog that can take out a bad guy and protect the school without making that dog vicious or unstable at all.” Gomer said he has been socialized to be friendly with children and other people in the school. Atticus will be working alongside hall monitor Garry Hornsby during the day and go home with principal John Stoddard each night. “I’m like his ride to work and his ride home,” Stoddard said. Hornsby said he’s glad Atticus will be his sidekick.

“I’m looking forward to having a buddy walk with me,” he said. “He has a lot of energy. I wish I had as much energy as he does.” Hornsby said they will make rounds together and escort any student that needs to go to the office or other locations during classtime. He will also make occasional trips to the middle schools in the district. Superintendent Todd Yohey said Atticus’ main goal is to keep students safe. “The great asset of having Atticus in the building every day is for him to serve as a deterrent,” he said. “Students and adults will think twice about what they transport into the building.” Atticus’ first day of work is Aug. 21 when the students return for classes.

scene.” The Seton Summer Theater Camp was just days away from their July 27 performance of “My Son Pinocchio Jr.” The group of children participated in a two-week camp and met for three hours per day. The theater camp also had a second afternoon session and those students worked together for a July 28 performance of

“Fame,” a musical about students at a performing arts high school. “I always try to pick a show the kids will enjoy,” Wainscott said, adding that students start as early as age 7. “They audition a month ahead of time and get a script and a CD with the music.” The Delhi Township resident said this is the fourth sum-

mer for the theater camp. They also have a winter theater camp that starts in January each year. “I met a lot of new friends,” Allison Moellinger, 13, Cleves, said. The Our Lady of Visitation student said she learned a lot at the summer theater camp.

Delhi Twp. — Mikayla Hinton said she’s to be the Rising Star. “I used to make videos of myself singing when I was 5,” she said. “I used to sing Disney songs.” The 13-year-old said she is hoping to use experience, voice lessons and love of music to help her win the Delhi Rising Star singing competition. She is one of three finalists who will compete at the Delhi Skirt Game Tailgate Party from 6 to 10 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 1, at Remke Biggs on Delhi Pike. Also vying for the title of Delhi Rising Star is Ft. Thomas, Ky., resident and Bayley employee Angela Williams-Woodard and Delhi resident Greg Moore.

“I learned to always stay in character,” the girl playing the Pink Fairy said. For some participants, it’s a way to break out of their shell, producer Mary Sunderhaus said. “You see a lot of kids who are really shy when they first come in and by the night of the performance, they’re amazing,” she said. “It’s great to have two weeks just to focus on theater.” Price Hill resident Nick Ciarla, 13, who plays Pinocchio, said he enjoys the opportunity to play a lead role. “I like having a role that challenges me,” he said. Ciarla has participated in all of the Seton Summer Theater Camp

sessions and had roles in “The Wizard of Oz,” “The King and I” and “Annie.” Cleves resident Makenzie Ruff, 14, said she was happy to land the role of the Blue Fairy. “I wanted to be the blue fairy,” she said. “I was really excited when I found out.” The theater camp started July 15 and ended with performances on July 27 and July 28 at the school. The next theater camp session will be in January and Wainscott said they will likely be performing “Dr. Dolittle.” For more information, visit

Open to all ages, but ideal for grades one through six. No reservations required We have always been captivated by the Red Planet. Before the days of TV and radio, fabulous stories had been written about astronauts exploring this far away and mysterious world. Generations have wondered if there has ever been civilized life on Mars. In 1895 American astronomer Percival Lowell turned his giant telescope to Mars and mapped what he thought were irrigation canals bringing much needed water from the planet’s north and south poles to desperate Martian farmers across the

planet. For the next installment of CASKids, Elizabeth Daniels from Cincinnati State Technical and Community College will help you explore what it might take for astronauts to live on Mars. What technology would you need? What would you have to bring with you? How would you engineer and build a colony on another world? What science would you do that the current NASA rovers can’t do?

Sayler Park festival celebrates sustainable living By Monica Boylson

!!!!!!!! 2 !!!!!

Sayler Park — Resident

Megan Ayers is promoting healthy living. The 33-year-old is launching Sayler Park Sustains, a free festival with old-time music and demonstrations on sustainable living from noon to 10 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 3, at Nelson Sayler Town Square Park. “I wanted to have a day to celebrate community and sustainability in Sayler Park,” she said. “With Sayler Park Sustains we want to give something back to the community. It’s a day-long celebration of community, sustainability and stewardship.” There will be free performances by local bands including: The Part Time Gentlemen, Casey Campbell, Red Cedars, Ben Knight and the Well Diggers, Terminal Union and the Tillers. The genre is old-time folk music. In between bands there will be hands-on demonstrations about urban chicken keeping, doit-yourself solar installation, organic farming, permaculture and beekeeping. “There are so many people in Sayler Park who grow their own food and we want to show people that you don’t have to spend your money on produce,” she said. “You can have your own garden. You can feed your family healthily without spending more than $2 on seeds. We want to open people’s

minds to that because a lot of people don’t think they can do it.” Ayers follows the same philosophy and plants many of the vegetables she and her husband eat. She also owns three chickens. Ayers said there will be food trucks at the festival and there may be sustainable brewers who grow and harvest their own hops. Local vendors including people who participate in the weekly farmers market will be there to sell fruits, vegetables, baked goods and other items. She added that there will be activities for children including face painting, and children will be able to take home a pot with seeds in it to grow their own plant or flower. T. J. Male, vocalist and guitar player for the Part Time Gentlemen, helped team up with Ayers to line up musicians for Sayler

Park Sustains. He said he was happy to help and was not surprised to hear that Ayers was trying to get a festival off the ground. “She’s always been the type of person to want to start something to benefit others and promote living more naturally,” he said. “She’s always told me, ‘I want to start my own festival,’ and she did.” Ayers said she hopes people will have a great time and leave the festival having learned something new. “We want it to be a community celebration and also something that people in Cincinnati can come down and see,” Ayers said. “It’s a way to shine a light on Sayler Park. It’s a party and the whole city’s invited.” To learn more about Sayler Park Sustains, visit lerparksustains or email saylerparksustains@

Art museum head to judge at Harvest Home Entries still accepted for fair’s art show By Amanda Hopkins

Cheviot — The Harvest Home Fair has boasted some local artists as judges of the fair’s art show for the last several years. This year, art show participants will showcase their work for Cincinnati Art Museum Executive Director Aaron Betsky. Art show co-chair Andy Patton said the Cincinnati Art Museum has been a part of the Harvest Home parade and now he and cochair Sharon Christopherson are excited that Betsky will be a part of the art show. “We try to have at least 100 entries every year,” Patton said. Three prizes are awarded in each of the categories of oil and acrylic, watercolor and multimedia. “There are always so many good works and we can’t give them all prizes,” Christopherson said. She said that outside of the top prizes, many of the entries are awarded honorable mentions. “The entries

just keep getting better and better.” Patton said there is Christopherson not a theme to the art show and artists can take creative license to their works. Each year entries range from portraits to landscapes to collages and other works of art. The art show is hosted by the Cheviot Westwood Kiwanis Club. Christopherson has been a part of Kiwanis for several years and co-chaired the art show for the last six or seven years. Patton recently joined Kiwanis after retiring and has been a co-chair of the art show for the last four years. The art show is open to all artists 17 years and older. Each artist can submit up to two entries. Entries are $10 each. All entries are due at the art show booth at Harvest Home Park on North Bend Road by Thursday morning Sept. 5. The winners will be announced on Friday, Sept. 6, and the artwork will be on display throughout the Harvest Home Fair which ends Sunday, Sept. 8.

West Price Hill doctor helping save a species By Tony Meale

West Price Hill — In February 2012, Dr. Monica Stoops, a reproductive physiologist for the Cincinnati Zoo, performed an artificial insemination on Jeta, a female Indian rhino in Montgomery, Ala. Sixteen months later, the fruits of Stoops’ groundbreaking labor (no pun intended) culminated with the birth of Ethan – the first known rhino calf in the United States to be conceived through artificial insemination and thrive in captivity. “It feels fantastic,” Stoops, who lives in West Price Hill, said of the achievement. “It’s a personal satisfaction, but it also feels really good knowing we had a team effort to make a difference for Indian rhinos. Everybody’s been behind the effort to get AI to work and have it be a viable option, and to see it being applied is awesome.” Ethan’s birth was nearly one decade in the making, as Stoops collected sperm in 2004 from a male rhino, Himal, who at the time was living in Zanesville, Ohio. The sperm was stored for eight years at minus 320 degrees Fahrenheit at the Cincinnati Zoo’s Conservation & Research of Endangered Wildlife (CREW) CryoBioBank. It

was then taken to Alabama, thawed and used in the AI procedure on Jeta, a 12-year-old on breeding loan from the San Diego Wild Animal Park. The first two procedures with Jeta were unsuccessful, but the third time was a charm, as the mother gave birth to Ethan in June. Stoops prefers animals to mate naturally, but certain species, including the Indian rhino, make it difficult – in part because the males and females don’t always, well, get along. “With African rhinos, the female tends to be in

charge; you’ll see the male standing off to the side and the female will tell him when he can come over – and he listens,” the West Price Hill resident explained. “But the (Indian) rhino tends to be male-dominated. (Indian) rhinos also have canine teeth so they have very sharp incisors and they actually use them during aggressive interaction.” In other words, when it comes to the Indian rhino, AI tends to be the safest option for all parties involved. Himal and Jeta, in fact, attempted to breed naturally but displayed

too much aggression toward one another. “(Artificial insemination) can be a little challenging for the research team,” she said, “but it’s what’s best for the animals.” AI also allows researchers to improve genetic diversity of the species, as there are only 60 Indian rhinos in captivity in North America and merely 2,500 remaining in the wild. As for Ethan, he was named in honor of Ethan Gilman, the 6-year-old Alabama boy who was taken hostage in February. Gilman reportedly visited the Montgomery Zoo a few days after his release and bonded with Jeta, who was still pregnant. Stoops was more than fine with the name. “We just wanted three toes on each foot,” she said, laughing. As of now, Himal, Jeta and Ethan all reside at Montgomery Zoo – one big, happy, pseudo-aggressive family. “Of course we want to have baby rhinos (in Cincinnati),” said Stoops, who also does reproductive work on animals ranging from polar bears to aquatic salamanders. “But it’s just as satisfying to know that other zoos and other people and other keepers are able to enjoy a baby rhino somewhere.”

At the Elder High School Band end of year awards ceremony, three band seniors were recipients of the top Elder band achievement awards. Christin Rottenberger was awarded the Marine Corps Semper Fidelis Award for Musical Excellence. The Semper Fidelis Award for Musical Excellence is presented by the U.S. Marine Youth Foundation and the Marine Corps League. The award is in recognition of diligence, dedication, citizenship, leadership, active participation and musical excellence as a performing high school bandsman and soloist. Brad Griffith was awarded the Louis Arm-

strong Jazz Award. The award is the highest senior award in the field of jazz, and is given in recognition of outstanding achievement by an instrumentalist in the field of jazz, as demonstrated through superior musicianship, character, and individual creativity. Jake Hills was awarded John Philip Sousa Band Award, the highest overall senior band award. It is given in recognition of outstanding achievement and interest in instrumental music, making the most use of his or her musical talents, merit in loyalty and cooperation, and displaying those qualities that high school instrumental music requires, through active participation.

More than 60 school administrators and officials from four local police departments gathered in June to learn from each other on the topic of school safety. This event was hosted by Diamond Oaks and included school administrators from Great Oaks, Oak Hills, Southwest Local Schools, North College Hill, Northwest and parochial schools from Green and Delhi townships. The police departments represented were from Green Township, Delhi Township, Sharonville, and North College Hill. Chief of Police Bart West from Green Township and Nancy Mulvey, dean of Instruction at Diamond Oaks coordinated this workshop. West started the workshop with information on school shootings and what schools can do to prepare themselves for this type of situation. Delhi Police Chief Jim Howarth assisted with this presentation. Next, Tom Luebbe, principal of La Salle High School shared information from the recent suicide attempt that occurred at La Salle this year. West and Luebbe discussed the many things they did well along with lessons learned. “Learning from others who have been through tragic incidents is paramount,” said Howarth. The workshop included AlertLockdown-Inform-Counter-Evacuate (ALICE) training information from Delhi School Resource Officer William Murphy. “This workshop was a great opportunity for all to learn from each other and to share information so we can ensure the safety of our schools,” Mulvey said.

By Tom Skeen

Area high school runners are set to take to the trails for the 2013 season. Here is preview of the teams in the Delhi Press/Price Hill Press coverage area:

Oak Hills


The Panthers are coached by Steve Spencer and return seniors Adam Gardner and Logan Steiner, who both reached the regional meet in 2012. No other information was available before press deadline.

La Salle

Coach Frank Russo will look to continue the Lancers’ streak of sending the team or an individual to the regional meet every year since 1984. Russo took over the team in 1983. The 2012 season marked the first time since 1985 that La Salle wasn’t represented at the state meet. “Since we won the state title in 2011, we have been in a rebuilding mode,” Russo said. “We’ve got pretty high expectations like we do every year, but we feel we are moving in the right direction.” Captain Adam Kluesener will lead the Lancers in 2013. “One of the things I like about Adam is he’s leading by example,” the coach said. “He’s at practice, he never misses conditioning, he’s constantly up front controlling the tempo and he’s pulling the younger guys along and keep everybody together as a pack. All of those things are a big part of being an outstanding role model and leader.” Junior Devin Sherman looks to be Russo’s No. 2 runner, followed by sophomore Brad Anneken, Jason Hanley, junior Michael Campbell and senior Andy Cornelius. “I feel we can be one of the top five team in the city,” Russo said. “Our short-term goal is to get to the regional meet as a team, get right up there in the mix to get in to the state championships.”

Mother of Mercy

Senior Emma Hatch will look to make history for the


Steam rolls into tourney The Cincinnati Steam clinched a first-round by in the Great Lakes Summer Collegiate League playoffs after a 9-3 win July 26 over the Licking County Settlers. After starting the season 10-9, the Steam won 14 of their final 21 games to finish the season 24-16, which tied the Settlers for second place but the Steam own the tie-breaker. Coach Billy O’Conner’s team begins postseason play July 31 on the road and will be back home Aug. 1 for game two of a best-of-three series. Their opponent is still to be determined.

Bobcats in 2013. The two-time state qualifier aims to become the school’s first three-time state qualifier in cross country. “She’s looking very strong,” coach Scott Ridder said. “She worked very hard to improve and her form is better and she’s stronger than ever. Her goal is to finish in the top 10 in the state.” Hatch will also look to break the school record of 18 minutes, 35 seconds. Her personal best thus far is 18:39. Senior Natalie Geraci enters her third year with the varsity squad and looks to take over the No. 2 spot on Ridder’s roster after the departure of Melina Artmayer. “She’s been healthy and has had the best summer of her career,” Ridder said. “She’s looking to make a big improvement this year.” Tori Weckenbrock, Maria Waters and freshman Alex Stevens are all expected to contribute. Ridder is looking for big things from his freshman. “She ran for Oak Hills’ junior high program last year and there is a good chance she could be one of our top three

Girls track coach Jake Richards takes over the boys’ team in place of Joe Zienner in 2013. The Highlanders graduated their top three runners from a season ago in Mitch Bischoff, Blake Meyer and Ross Frondorf. No other information was available before press deadline. Shellie Hageman mans the Lady Highlanders’ cross country squad. B’s Frondorf is back after earning first-team All-Greater Miami Conference honors last year. Joining Frondorf are second-teamers Sydney Kilgore, Karlee Meiman and Emma Zimmer. No other information was available before press deadline.

Elder 2009 graduate Matthew Robben takes over as coach in place of long-time coach Mike Trimpe. Robben coached Elder’s “B” team the previous two years. Senior Zach Bauer will captain the Panthers in 2013 and was part of the 2012 team that made a run to the district tournament. Fellow seniors Jake McSwigan and Davis Rensing both saw time with the “A” and “B” team last year, but were not part of the postseason roster. Both are expected to contribute heavily in 2013. Sophomore Kurt Fortman was Trimpe’s No. 4 golfer last season and with the graduation of three of the team’s top six golfers from a season ago, Fortman will be one of the top golfers this season for Robben. “He made the (postseason roster) last year and has had a really good summer so far,” Robben said of Fortman. “We are expecting some really good things out of him this year.” Junior Josh Rhoads caps the Panthers’ top five golfers for 2013. “The guys haven’t played together a whole lot, but they did a lot of offseason work together,” the first-year coach said. “The ones that could make it to (the offseason work) really bonded and played a lot of golf this summer together so I think once things get started and we get a few matches under our belt we will be just fine.” The Panthers get their season started Aug. 8 with the An-

La Salle

The reigning Cincinnati Enquirer Division I Player of the Year and Greater Cincinnati Golf Coaches Association Player of the Year is back for the Lancers. Junior Daniel Wetterich – cousin of former PGA Tour pro Brett Wetterich – averaged 69.9 on 18 holes and posted a Greater Catholic League best nine-hole average of 36.90 last season. “It’s a new year so the biggest thing is trying to convince him what he did last year doesn’t matter,” La Salle coach Jon Feldkamp said. “It’s a new year.” See GOLF, Page A9


The Saints are coming off a season where they placed fourth at the GGCL meet and were fifth at districts. Senior Brooke Schleben reached the regional meet and was named first-team AllGGCL. Karen Berndt coaches the Saints. No other information was available before press deadline.

St. Xavier

Coming off their first state title since 2003, the Bombers will look to fill some big shoes in 2013. Jake Grabowski, Michael Momper, Alex Kuvin, Patrick Drumm and Andrew Gardner have all graduated. All five played a key role in the Bombers’ 2012 state title. Leading the charge this season will be seniors Michael Hall and Evan Stifel. Hall finished 24th at state last season, while Stifel was 32nd. Mike Dehring returns to coach the Bombers in 2013.

Returning players Drew Gautheir, Taylor Healey and Zach Smith will join Wetterich is trying to help the Lancers “Roll Deep” into the postseason in 2013. “I just hope the guys can help out a little bit,” Feldkamp said. “If they can play their game I think we’ll be just fine.” The Lancers get things started in 2013 Aug. 8 with the Anderson Invitational at Legendary Run Golf Course.

Mother of Mercy

The Bobcats are coached by Rick Nicklas and Jackie Sheridan and are coming off a 9-8 season in 2012. The girls’ season begins Aug. 6 against Centerville and Xenia at Twin Base Golf Course.

Oak Hills

Coach Aron Strine takes is set to begin his fourth season with Oak Hills and he does so with a very experienced squad on his hands. Strine’s top five golfers include four seniors and a junior. Senior Sam Meek is back after averaging a 38.80 last season, which was sixth best in the Greater Miami Conference. Following Meek is fellow senior Ben Laumann was third on the team last season with a 40.10 ninehole average. Hayden Burns, Kevin Wright and junior Ty Sauer round out the top five for the Highlanders. Burns, Wright and Sauer


each averaged slightly over a 43 in 2012. With all this experience, Strine’s squad is looking for the schools first-ever league title after a second-place finish a season ago. “My five returning players do what they need to do in the offseason to prepare themselves for the regular season,” the coach said. “They work hard and are committed to getting better in search of our first GMC title. I look forward to the 2013 season as the sky is the limit of what we can achieve.” The Highlanders start their season Aug. 14 with the Fairfield Invitational at Fairfield – South Trace Golf Course. The Lady Highlanders will miss state qualifier Mackenzie Laumann, who is off to Northern Kentucky University where she will tow the links, but coach Sandy Fernbacher returns three starters from their district qualifying team of a season ago. Seniors Michal Beth Hobstetter and Megan Eckstein will captain the team in 2013, while sophomore Kelsey Wessels – Fernbacher’s No. 2 golfer last season – will likely take over Laumann’s top spot.


Entering his 10th season as the Bombers’ coach and coming off a first-place finish in the GCL South, coach Alex Kepley’s team is looking strong again. Kirran Magowan is back for his sophomore campaign after earning Enquirer first-team, first team all-district and GCL first-team honors as a freshman. His ninehole average of 37.27 was second in the league. Senior Brendan Keating enters his second season with the varsity squad after an impressive junior year where he averaged 39.71, earning himself second team AllGCL honors. Fellow senior Matt Schiller took home first team All-GCL honors and was an all-Enquirer Honorable Mention selection after posting a 38.97 average in 2012. Senior Ryan Ellis was one of Kepley’s top seven golfers last season and with the graduation of GCL South Athlete of the Year Joey Arcuri, Ellis figures to slide into one of the top five golfers for the Bombers this season. Ben Keating, John Popken, Henry Hartmann, Kevin Hecht, Joe Toomb and Ben Wright are all underclassmen that are expected to contribute in 2013. “(We have) a solid mixture of experienced veterans with fresh, motivated younger guys moving up,” Kepley said.

The Saints are coached by Peggy Korte and are coming off a 13-9 season in 2012 where they finished second in the Girls Greater Cincinnati League Scarlet Division. Korte’s team finished seventh in the final Enquirer Division I area coaches’ poll, but gradu-

He will be missed

With great sadness I read of Larry Schmolt’s passing. I did not know him personally nor do I live in Price Hill but I will miss his letters to the editor. I think that his dedication to his community was outstanding. I will miss his telling of historical West Side events and his occasional view points on political situations. Price Hill and Cincinnati have lost a very good man. RIP Mr. Schmolt. Gary W. Case Sr. Delhi Township

The barber’s prayer

It’s not every day we can pick up the paper or turn on the radio looking for good news, but in remembrance of a neighbor, a friend, a hard worker, a good father, this little barber prayer should have something in our hearts for someone – Bob Faecher, Bob’s Barber Shop – who didn’t ask for much, but gave 43 years serving our community. The prayer goes something like this: Dear God, Today as I work in my barber shop, help me to dispense to my customers joy and not sadness. Help me to be kind to all whose hair I cut and shave. Do not let me grow so big that I cannot see the hurt in the eyes of a child or the loneliness in the eyes of those who are old.

But give me the ability to make them laugh and help them to forget those things that are not so pleasant. When the day’s work is done and I close my eyes in quiet slumber, may I hear you whisper ell done barber, because you made my people laugh, you made me smile also. It’s a humbling thought of encouragement for all of use to consider in all that we do during our daily routines. Bill Keenan Delhi Township

Budget moving Ohio in right direction The Ohio budget that was signed into law at the end of last month was not perfect, and neither is the budget process. But after all the ideas, testimony and alternatives were weighed, I think it is a budget that will continue to move Ohio in the right direction. And Ohio is headed in the right direction. Louis Terhar One way to COMMUNITY PRESS consider evalGUEST COLUMNIST uating Ohio’s financial situation is to consider it as a “turn around” business with a $30 billion per year budget. Compared to the state’s financial position just three years ago, the transformation that has taken place is exceptional. While we would all agree that there is still a long way to go, I am pleased by the progress that has been made and expect it to continue. Since the beginning of the previous budget cycle in early 2011, Ohioans have created more than 170,000 jobs. Those jobs provide opportunities for people to make their own individual decisions and lead to an increase in total wealth in our state. Because people who pay taxes first have to earn the money, cutting income taxes on income earners and small businesses was the responsible thing to do. It will make Ohio more competitive in attracting new business and will help existing Ohio businesses grow. The growth in wealth created and the jobs that create the wealth makes it possible to

fund important public institutions, such as schools. This budget increases funding for nearly 70 percent of the school districts in Ohio, and 80 percent of the students in the state will be attending schools receiving greater funding. No school district is getting less than they did last year. This was possible because we have a growing economy that produces jobs. It is also important to have funds on hand should the state experience an economic downturn in the future. Gov. Kasich recently announced that an additional $996 billion is being put in the rainy day fund, expanding it to a total of $1.48 billion. This fund is analogous to ensuring adequate working capital in a business. In an economic downturn in the past, the state was forced to cut spending for schools and infrastructure. The $1.48 billion in our state’s “balance sheet” will allow continued funding of critical services when the tax revenue fluctuates. In government, there is always pressure for money to be spent. The state budget impacts everyone. I think this budget is a positive step forward for Ohio, and I was proud to support it.

New legislation may help sewer woes Our sewer rates in Hamilton County have increased by a staggering 130 percent over the last 10 years. What’s more, the county faces paying an additional $3.2 billion in mandated sewer update costs – enough money to build two Brent Spence Bridges! Jawdropping bills like ours are occurring in communities across America. Why such huge rate increases? Because local Steve Chabot COMMUNITY PRESS communities are attemptGUEST COLUMNIST ing to comply with consent decrees they’ve been forced to agree to by the federal EPA. Currently, the EPA takes a one-size-fits-all, top-down, Washington-knowsbest approach in enforcing sewer and stormwater standards. This tactic has led to exorbitant costs which make it next to impossible for local communities to adequately fund police, fire, road repair and other local priorities. It’s a big problem. Awhile back, Hamilton County Commissioner Todd Portune came to me seeking help on this important issue. He’s been working with a coalition of other local gov-

ernment officials all across the country struggling with the same problem. Todd and I, our staffs and the coalition have been working together to come up with a solution. And I believe we’ve found it. On July 17, I introduced legislation which, if passed, would give local communities more flexibility to come up with innovative, less expensive ways to address their wastewater and stormwater challenges. Communities would still have to achieve the same high standards for clean water but additional flexibility should allow many communities to do so in a more affordable and cost-effective manner. Specifically, my bill would call for the EPA to allow 15 pilot communities across America to work with the EPA to set up their own program to come into compliance with clean water standards. Everybody wins under this common-sense approach. By allowing the EPA to work more effectively with pilot communities, residents of those communities should get cleaner water at a lower cost. Meanwhile, Congress, the EPA and affected state agencies will be able to study and learn from these programs and, if successful, eventually allow more local communities

to adopt what works best in their area, thus saving taxpayers a lot of money while still maintaining stringent clean water standards. It’s my hope, and goal, that Hamilton County will be chosen as one of the 15 pilot programs. Our community, of course, would have to apply and compete for one of the 15 slots in a fair and above-board process. But if selected, the Hamilton County Commissioners estimate this legislation could save county ratepayers hundreds of millions of dollars compared to the current estimated cost of mandated repairs. This has been a difficult and challenging issue for our community, and I want to thank and commend Commissioner Portune for his leadership in addressing it in a very innovative and thoughtful manner. I guess this is at least one example of bipartisanship at work – a Democrat and a Republican working together to get something done for our community, and for our country.

Medicare Part D deserves our support Seniors want to be independent, and key to that independence is financial stability. Helping Hamilton and Warren County seniors attain or maintain that stability is one of our missions at Cincinnati Area Senior Services (CASS). Health care costs can be a significant issue for many of our seniors. Plans which help control those costs, and do so effectively, deserve our support. Medicare Part D, the prescription drug proTracey Collins gram, has COMMUNITY PRESS helped senGUEST COLUMNIST iors and those with disabilities with dependable access to medications since the program started in 2006. At a time when health care costs are spiraling out of control, Part D is costing 45 percent lower than projections, according to the Congressional Budget Office (CBO). The Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) last year said that improved access and adherence to medicines through Part D saves Medicare about $1,200 per year in hospital, nursing home and other costs for each senior who previously lacked comprehensive drug coverage. This translates into about $12 billion per year in savings across Medicare. Polls have consistently shown high satisfaction rates among Part D enrollees. A recent survey by Medicare Today found that 90 percent

of seniors in Part D are satisfied with the program. Part D is a public-private partnership. The federal government manages the program and private insurers administer the plans. The health plans negotiate with pharmacies and drug companies to get the lowest possible prices. This requires health plans to compete for customers, resulting in a wide variety of affordable plan choices. Medicare Part D premiums are half the amount projected when the program started and remained unchanged between 2011 and 2013. The average monthly premium is about $30 in 2013, less than half of the $61 forecast originally, according to the Centers for Medicare Services. A 2012 analysis shows that the average price for prescribed drugs purchased through Part D increased by a total of just 1 percent over the program’s first four years. Despite its solid performance, the future of Part D is in jeopardy as Congress considers the federal budget deficit and entitlement reforms. There are three proposals that could dramatically change Part D and undermine its success. First: the Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB), a 15-member group solely appointed by the President. When it convenes in the future, the IPAB will recommend ways to hold down costs in Medicare. It is expected that some recommendations will restrict access to some medicines and treatments. The IPAB is unaccountable to Congress and its decisions

cannot be appealed or challenged by patients or their medical professionals. It is encouraging that some in Congress are working to repeal this part of the Affordable Care Act. Second, many in Congress want to impose Medicaidstyle rebates to Part D. This would impose government price controls on about onethird of Part D spending and undermines the current competition-based structure that contains costs. Third, there are some who want to allow the Secretary of Health and Human Services to interfere in the private price negotiations between Medicare Part D plans and drug manufacturers and pharmacies in the program. Part D prohibits this as the “noninterference clause” but some in Congress want to repeal this rule. The nonpartisan CBO says that allowing interference is unlikely to achieve any significant savings unless the government also restricts beneficiary access to prescription drugs or fixes prices. One of our agency’s visions is to excel in fiscal management and efficiency of operation. We believe Medicare Part D is on the path to do the same. We urge the Ohio members of Congress, particularly Congressman Brad Wenstrup, Senator Sherrod Brown and Senator Rob Portman, to maintain the successful Medicare Part D program. Tracey Collins is the executive director of Cincinnati Area Senior Services.

Cherry bounce is heirloom classic

I couldn’t resist buying an extra pound of dark cherries from the grocery. Not to eat out of hand or put into fruit salads, but to make cherry bounce. It’s an old fashioned liqueur with true heirloom status. Rita I beHeikenfeld lieve the RITA’S KITCHEN Shakers used to make something like cherry bounce and used it as a medicinal for sore throats, etc. The recipe is a hand-written one from my friend Ann Rudloff, a Kentucky reader. Her mom, Mary, made it every year. Mary said it would cure just about anything. She’s in heaven now and is probably still brewing up batches! I’ve known friends to use it as an after dinner cordial and to spoon the cherries from the bottom of the bottle onto ice cream or cake.

Classic cherry bounce

Mary used to use sug-

Start layering meats, cheese, vegetables and lettuce, brushing each layer with dressing, until you run out of filling. Press each layer down as you go. Press top onto sandwich and wrap and chill for at least 1 hour or up to 8 hours. Cut into big wedges to serve.

ar string candy, several pieces, for the sugar. I can’t always find that so I use regular sugar.

1 pound dark cherries stemmed but not pitted. 2 cups sugar 1 bottle bourbon whiskey

Put cherries in glass jar. Pour sugar and whiskey over. Put lid on. Shake each day until sugar dissolves. Here’s the kicker, though. Wait about 4-6 months before drinking. I keep mine in my pie safe. Great as a holiday gift. Be sure and put on the label that the cherries have pits.

Tip from Rita’s kitchen

I’m substituting raw honey for the sugar in one of my batches. I’ll let you know how it turns out.

KidzShow performing ‘Little Mermaid’

Someone once said kids and theater together make magic. There will be magic when a cast of more than 140 children in the St. Ignatius KidzShow summer theater program take the stage to perform Disney’s “The Little Mermaid” at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Aug. 2 and 3, at McAuley High School’s Performing Arts Theatre, 6000 Oakwood Ave., College Hill. KidzShow is in its 20th year of providing an opportunity for youth to be able to experience live theater during the summer months when schedules are not so hectic. Children ages 6 to 17 unite to bring to life

some of the most-loved Broadway shows. The program began as a children’s variety show and then changed its format to a more professional approach by performing actual musical theater productions three years ago. KidzShow performed “Beauty and the Beast” last summer, “Annie” in 2011, and “Cinderella” in 2010. Because of its success each year, the program continues to grow. The cast of “The Little Mermaid” includes children from St. Ignatius, St. Catharine, St. James, St. John’s Dry Ridge, McAuley High School, Mercy High School, and La Salle High School. The KidzShow live band

will present musical highlights including “Part of Your World,” “Kiss the Girl,” “Poor Unfortunate Souls,” “Under the Sea,” and 55 girls rocking the house to “She’s in Love.” Tickets are only $6 and can be purchased at the door. For more information, call directors Jenny and Emily Bates at 519-9390. The KidzShow’s “The Little Mermaid” Character Breakfast will be 1011 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 3, at McAuley High School’s Cafeteria. This is an opportunity for children to enjoy breakfast, meet some characters, have a photo (with your own camera), get autographs from the

cast, enjoy storytime, and view a few excerpts from the show. Cost is $7 per person (adult or child). Register at St. Ignatius Parish Office. Registration deadline is Thursday Aug. 1. Checks are preferred and made payable to St. Ignatius KidzShow. Breakfast sponsors are: Bob Evans, Panera, Edible Arrangements, TriHealth (Good Samaritan Hospital and Good Samaritan Western Ridge), SAMs, Meijer, and North College Hill Bakery.

Perpetual bread “starter.” For Nanci P. who said she was watching Paula Deen’s show and a person brought with her a starter that she had had for 42 years. “She added a bit to her cinnamon yeast rolls, but she said you can add to any bread, muffin, etc. How would I create my own starter and are they difficult to feed, keep temperature proper, and any other criteria?” Nanci told me this is not a sourdough starter, and I’m thinking it’s something like my friendship bread starter, which can be kept for eons as long as it’s kept

fed. It can also be frozen. Does anybody have a starter similar to what Nanci wants? Greyhound Grille’s pasta Gabrielle. Kentucky reader Mary Ann B. would love to know how to make this or something similar. Update on 7-Up cake. Thanks to all who sent in this recipe for Tom W. I am paring through them and will share one soon. Readers sent in both from scratch recipes and ones that start with a cake mix.

Door-to-door sales have three days to cancel When you buy something from a door-todoor salesman you have three days in which to cancel. However, one area woman says she had a hard time trying to cancel a purchase made by her mother and her experience serves as a lesson for us all. Renee Gruseck, of Price Hill, says a door-todoor salesman sold her mother a new vacuum cleaner. The probHoward lem is she Ain didn’t HEY HOWARD! need a new vacuum cleaner. “I

came in and took a look at the sweeper and the contract and got on the phone with company,” she said. The distributor of the vacuum cleaner had sold the unit with lots of attachments. So she had her mother sign to cancel the deal and then called the company to explain about her mother’s mild cognitive impairment. “I explained to them that there was an impairment and that they’d be best served discussing it with me. My concern was if she cancels it they would try to resell the sweeper to her,” Gruseck said. Nevertheless, when the company returned to pick up the vacuum

cleaner and return her mother’s sweeper, her mother signed a new contract to buy the vacuum cleaner again. Gruseck said all she wants to do is return the entire vacuum cleaner and get back her mother’s sweeper. But at this point, she was having a hard time dealing with the company. “I had an appointment scheduled with one of their employees a week ago at 8:30 in the evening and they didn’t show up,” she said. “There are other methods of sweeping and cleaning your floor that doesn’t require a $1,500 sweeper,” Gruseck said. Actually, when you include the 25 percent interest rate in the three-year payment contract she signed, the total cost of the sweeper comes to more than $2,100. “She could afford the sweeper, but it was a matter that she didn’t need a sweeper. She had a sweeper. She has her carpets professionally cleaned so there’s no need for her to have that sweeper,” Gruseck said. Finally, the company scheduled another pickup and this time Gruseck took off from work so she could be there. As a result, she was able to return the unit and get back her mother’s vacuum — along with the money her mother had already put down on the unit. Bottom line, remember you have three days to cancel a door-to-door sale. And by all means keep an eye on older relatives who may not fully realize what they’re getting themselves into with some of those contracts.

With Dater Montessori teacher Ann Michael, right, in Washington, D.C, with, from left, Sharon Wu, Erin Hawe, April Angel, Congressman Chabot, Dominique Brown, Jerilyn Cox and Michael.THANKS TO THE INTERNATIONAL JUSTICE MISSION.

Teacher discusses human trafficking in D.C. Cincinnati resident and Dater Montessori teacher Ann Michael recently met the with the Ohio Congressional delegation. Michael was among 250 individuals from 40 states who took part in a day of advocacy organized by human rights agency International Justice Mission (IJM). Participants met with more than 210 Congressional offices to build support for strong U.S. policies to combat trafficking and slavery at home and abroad. Michael and fellow advocates from Ohio advocated for passage of the Human Trafficking Prioritization Act, which elevates the authority of the State Department’s Trafficking in Persons Office – a U.S. government agency dedicated to combating human trafficking. U.S. citizens’ interest in eradicating slavery has kept the issue high on the political agenda in Washington for the past decade. In recent years, the existence of proven antislavery models has equipped advocates with data and success stories

to encourage Members of Congress and Senators from across the political spectrum to support increased investment in anti-trafficking programs. “As a CPS teacher at Dater Montessori, I look into the faces of my students every day and see the joy they get from learning and playing with their friends. It’s hard to believe that there are millions of children around the world who instead of going to school or playing with their friends, are working 14 hours a day, 7 days a week in a brick factory, a rice mill, or a stone quarry. Knowing that it is possible to combat this unspeakable crime has given me the confidence to advocate for strong policies and funding with our elected leaders in government,” said Michael. She and other District 1 residents met with U.S. Rep. Steve Chabot in his Capitol Hill office. All government agencies have faced budget cuts in the face of sequestration, making citizen support for US government programs to

combat slavery more important than ever. Organizations like IJM are seeing significant improvements in public justice systems protecting the poor and preventing slavery, even over short periods of time. In just four years of collaboration with local authorities in Cebu, the Philippines, IJM has seen the number of minors available in the commercial sex trade reduced by 79 percent. Private investment by for IJM’s anti-slavery work in India has enabled a dramatic expansion of the organization’s work there from 9 to 50 states in the country, resulting in the freeing of nearly 1,000 bonded labors in just ten months. “With an estimated 27 million people currently in slavery today, the enormity of the problem can be overwhelming. But even one family being freed from bondage is worthy of our efforts and U.S. government investment,” said Michael. For more information about International Justice Mission visit

15 library locations where the program was provided – many kids would miss a meal.” Covedale Library Branch Manager Casey Titschinger said her branch receives about 10 lunches a day from Window Arts Enrichment and alternate between and hot

and cold meals. “It gives a chance for kids who normally get the free lunch at school to still have access to lunch during the summer,” she said. Volunteer Elijah Kearns, 13, said he enjoys helping people at the Covedale Library. “I volunteer two to three days a week,” he said. “I like working with people and this is a great way to give back to the community.” The libraries are getting lunches from two sources this year. Some branches are partnering with Cincinnati Public Schools. Others are teamed with Window Arts Enrichment. Robin Carpenter, executive director of Window Arts Enrichment, said her

nonprofit got involved with the lunch program five years ago because they regularly saw hungry kids at programs and

projects they were presenting. “Before you can enrich, you have to make sure the basics are there,”

Literature and books may feed the soul, but local libraries are also interested in feeding the body. In June alone, branches provided more than 5,000 lunches for children to bridge the hunger gap. Officials from the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County said 1,730 youngsters received assistance at Covedale, College Hill, Forest Park, Groesbeck, and North Central branch libraries. “This wonderful collaboration between the public library, Cincinnati Public Schools, and Window Arts Enrichment allows us to help fill the crucial nutritional needs of children while also offering opportunities for literacy programs enabling kids to stay more focused and attentive,” said Maria Sferra, the west regional manager for the library system. “Consequently, they also become better readers.” “It has always been core to the mission of our library to have open doors and provide easy access to whatever is needed,” she said. “Since libraries are natural gathering places, they are the perfect fit for this type of program. But we must first recognize that without the help of our partnering organizations, lots of caring community volunteers, and staff members from across the entire library system – not just those who work at the

she said. “Cincinnati City Councilwoman Laure Quinliven suggested we talk with the libraries and it has turned out to be a great partnership.” In addition to the library lunches, WAE also provides meals through community centers and churches in the Greater Cincinnati area, such as the All in One Ministry Youth Development Center in Cheviot. The library lunch program runs through Aug. 9. Carpenter estimates Window Arts Enrichment provides more than 1,500 meals a day with support from local community food pantries, federal funds, grants and donations and money her group raises. “This is one of the richest countries in the world,” she said. “No child should be hungry.” For more information about Window Arts Enrichment, see the group’s website.

Sale proceeds will help replace van Faith Fellowship Church, 6734 Bridgetown Road, is hosting a benefit indoor rummage sale for John Ginn Jr., whose hand-controlled van was stolen from his father’s driveway in Cheviot June 20. The rummage sale is from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Aug. 2 and 3. Ginn has multiple sclerosis and requires a van with hand controls to get to work. The van also had power wheelchair, manual wheelchair, and four-wheel walker. Because the van wasn’t worth much, he did not have insurance against theft. “Who would have thought someone would steal a beat-up ’92 Plymouth?” Ginn said.

A benefit indoor rummage sale Aug. 2 and 3 will help John Ginn Jr. replace his hand-controlled van that was stolenPROVIDED

Police recovered the van June 25 but it had been stripped and is undriveable. “The only things that were left in the van were my arm crutches, my leg

brace (thank goodness) and my manual wheelchair, but when I went to use the wheelchair the wheels were dislodged and wobbled. Everything else was gone, including my Bible,” Ginn said. Ginn is working with homeowners insurance to replace the stolen medical equipment, but is in need of a van with hand controls. Without it, his independence is severely limited. Donations for the rummage sale are welcome at Faith Fellowship Church. Call the church at 598-6734 to drop off donations. In addition, an account has been opened at Fifth Third Bank under the name John Ginn Fund.

Drama workshop opens riding the rails The Drama Workshop is deep into preparations for the opening show of its new season, the melodrama “Love Rides the Rails.” The play opens Friday, Aug. 2, at The Glenmore Playhouse, 3716 Glenmore Ave., Cheviot. “Love Rides the Rails” is an old-style melodrama, with strong heroes, lovely damsels in distress, and dastardly villains who will do anything to con a widow out of her stake in the Westwood, Cheviot and Dent Railroad. It’s family-friendly fare that will delight people of all ages. Valeria Ambergy plays the pious Widow Hopewell, and has worked to create a complex character amidst all the camp. “Mrs. Hopewell only wants what’s best for her daughter. She acts old and infirm – but is really sharp. We are having fun – and can be as crazy as we want to be. I’m reminded of my childhood cartoons like Dudley Do-Right and Rocky & Bullwinkle.” Long-time Drama Workshop member Vickie

Greco agrees: “I like the show because it is silly and good old fashioned fun. We can put aside our daily struggles for just a few moments, lighten up, and enter a childlike world where it is just good vs. evil, and good wins.” The Drama Workshop is inviting the audience to participate in the fun. Patrons will be coached to boo at the villains, and cheer the heroes during the performance. Preshow activities will include face-painting for children (so you can get your own dastardly mustache) and a photo booth. “Love Rides the Rails” will be presented Aug. 2Aug. 11. Showtimes are 8 p.m. on Aug. 2, 3, 9, and 10; matinees will be at 2 p.m. on Aug. 3, 4, 10, and 11. All tickets are $15, and reservations are recommended. Tickets may be reserved through the The Drama Workshop ticket line at 513-598-8303 or through the website at www.thedramawork Season tickets are also available at the price of $50 for a four-show pack-
