Teachers getting ready for school

New strategy

Police in Cincinnati District 3 are coming up with a new approach to improve the quality of life on the West Side. – FULL STORY, A3

Being confused is in the curriculum for third-graders in Donna Schwier’s Our Lady of Victory classroom this year. The 12-year veteran of the Delhi Township school and several of her colleagues took a summer class aimed at teaching students that asking questions isn’t dumb.


Delhi Middle School administrators Jay Phillips, left, and Dan Beckenhaupt are lining the newly enhanced school entry way with positive behavior themes before students return Wednesday, Aug. 25.

Seton High School hosted teachers looking to keep upto-date with the latest changes in education. – FULL STORY, A2


Our Lady of Victory third-grade teacher Donna Schwier gets help from OLV graduate Kendall Cappel in organizing her classroom. Cappel is heading off to start her freshman year at Seton High School.

“So many times, students are afraid to raise their hands and ask a question and admit they don’t understand something,” Schwier said. “We want them to know there are no stupid questions and confusion is a good thing.” Students will start getting the “confusion rocks” message when they come back to class Aug. 24. Delhi Middle School students will get their first look at the school’s new entryway and expanded art classroom when they trek back to class Wednesday, Aug. 25, along with all Oak Hills Local School District students. Principal Dan Beckenhaupt and his assistant, Jay Phillips, have been busy decking the

It hung almost hidden among cards, poems and photos at the St. Joseph Cemetery burial niche of Tim Roos. Someone, Jan Roos said, put a Purple Heart at her son’s niche about a year after he was killed while serving in Iraq in 2006 with the U.S. Marines. About three weeks ago, the Purple Heart was stolen. “We think it was probably kids, but we don’t know,” Roos said. About a week ago, vandals caused an estimated $250,000 in damages to other areas of the West Price Hill cemetery. “Again, we don’t know if the Purple Heart being stolen and the

vandalism is connected,” Roos said. Hearing about the theft, a Cleves man, Duke Heller, contacted the Roos family and gave them one of the two he received while serving with the Marines in Vietnam. “I couldn’t believe it,” Roos said. “What kindness he has.” Roos said along with the Purple Heart, now safely displayed in their Delhi Township home, someone else left a combat ribbon at the cemetery office. And, again, the Roos family is touched by the gesture. There is a $3,000 reward for information about the cemetery vandalism. Anyone with that information should call CrimeStoppers at 352-3040.

Benches being added to township memorial By Heidi Fallon

Work to install two black granite benches at the Delhi Township Veterans Memorial Park is expected to begin this week. The Delhi Township Veterans Association has raised enough money to add the benches, which will flank the Killed In Action memorials. Jeff Lefler, association secre-

tary, told township trustees at their Aug. 11 meeting that the benches “are a gift to the residents and our veterans and their families.” “This is something I’ve wanted to see completed since the park was dedicated three years ago,” Lefler said. “The memorial has always been missing a place for people to sit and reflect.

The burial niche of Timothy Roos is covered with notes, poems and pictures from friends, family and strangers wanting to honor the memory of the fallen Delhi Township Marine.

Memorial “The benches also will be nice to have for the ceremonies we have.” Lefler, who chaired the committee to secure the benches along with Howard Brinkdoepke and Jerry Morris, said the Schott Monument Co. was more than generous. “Schott donated part of the cost, which was very much appreciated,” he said. The benches cost $1,000 each, plus another $500 for the foundation. Lefler said he and the association would like to be

Lefler also told trustees veterans are putting up a plaque at the park thanking the township for helping make the memorial a reality. “It’s wonderful what’s been accomplished at the memorial,” said Trustee Mike Davis. “We’re seeing more and more people coming to see the walls and the tribute to our veterans.”

The teenagers aren’t the only ones who learn new ideas and concepts at Seton High School. Seton teachers also spend time in the learner’s seat to expand their horizons and keep up to date with the latest changes and practices in education. When Seton students return to the classroom Wednesday, Aug. 25, their teachers will be ready to challenge them with fresh ideas and approaches to instruction. The school hosted a twoday conference Tuesday, Aug. 10, and Wednesday, Aug. 11, giving faculty members an opportunity to develop ways to improve curriculum this coming school year. The conference was led by Allison Zmuda, an author and education consultant who taught high school social studies before writing books and touring the country presenting professional development training sessions. Her focus is to help every educator create a competent classroom – a learning environment where all participants believe it is possible for them to be successful. Donna Brigger, Seton’s

principal, said the conference was all about curriculum improvement and how to think in terms of how students learn. “We are the architects, and we’re designing curriculum that works best for our students,” she said. “We’re focusing on student learning and understanding, and we’re trying to develop curriculum that will enhance our students’ critical thinking skills.” Jim Pharo, who has been teaching social studies at Seton for 40 years, said Zmuda presented some interesting theories he plans to put into practice in his classroom this year. “I think the conference was pretty good,” Pharo said. “It dealt with a different approach to curriculum and different ways to get students to think on their own and be a little more active in the classroom.” Zmuda said teaching and learning is a collective endeavor, and the aim of the conference was to help teachers consider new ways

of reaching all students. For instance, she said instead of having students just read a classic novel – a task some students may not find challenging – an English teacher may want to think about also having students research and act out a character in the book to get them to think differently about the subject and interact with the material. “We’re trying to come up with an idea for how they (teachers) develop student learning,” she said. Brigger said this summer was the second straight year Seton brought Zmuda in to lead a conference. Teachers who participated earned continuing education credits from the College of Mount St. Joseph. About 45 teachers attended the sessions. In addition to Seton, educators from St. Xavier and McAuley high schools also took part, Brigger said. “We’re aware of the fact the student-learner has changed,” she said. “This is a whole new approach to teaching.”

District 3 applying new police strategy

By Kurt Backscheider

By Kurt Backscheider

Police officers in District 3 are going to try a new approach to improving safety and quality of life on the West Side. “We’re getting away from traditional policing,� said Cincinnati Police Capt. Russell Neville, District 3 commander. “There’s the old adage about working smarter, not harder. Well we’re going to work smarter and harder.� District 3 leaders are instituting a community improvement program, and aim to improve the quality of life in each neighborhood through focused police service, community involvement and problem solving. Neville said the idea behind the program is to revitalize the district’s neighborhoods one street and one block at a time, sending the message that residents and stakeholders are proud of the West Side and invested in the community. The district’s three police lieutenants will each oversee one area of the district. Each of those three areas are divided into “sectors� – smaller segments within the district’s traditional beats. Each lieutenant has five sergeants and about 30 police officers assigned to them. District investigators and violent crimes squad officers are also assigned to specific sectors as support for the officers. The sergeants and officers will focus their attention on their specific sectors, and in addition to responding to calls in that sector will also work to engage the community and help resolve quality of life issues. “We as a district are not getting anywhere,� Neville said. “We’re married to the radio and bouncing from run to run.� He said because responding to radio calls is such an important aspect of policing, this new program will not change radio response or beat assignments, but it will be something officers will work

August 18, 2010


Cincinnati Police Capt. Russell Neville, District 3 commander, points out some of the different neighborhood sectors he and his administrative team have broken the district into as part of a community improvement program. The program’s goal is to improve the quality of life in each neighborhood through focused police service.

Give your opinion Cincinnati Police District 3 officers are asking residents to complete an online survey to help with the implementation of a new community improvement program. Residents can provide input and tell officers what they think about the quality of life and crime issues in their neighborhood at Police officers and supervisors completed a similar survey, and the results of both surveys will be compared to determine the starting point for improvement projects. on during slower periods. When officers aren’t responding to radio calls, they’ll be visible in the neighborhood and talking with residents about the issues they have, whether it be a pile of old tires in the roadway, junk vehicles, vacant houses, broken windows or groups of people hanging around on the corner, he said. He said condensing the focus on specific areas will help officers make a greater impact in the neighborhood. Neville said Lt. Debbie Bauer has taken his vision for

the program and is spearheading the effort to put it into action. Bauer said the program is a proactive approach to policing and will hopefully reduce the reasons why people call police in the first place. “I see so much potential with it,� she said. “Once we get the momentum going and the community on board with us I think we’ll see a tremendous improvement.� She said as part of the initiative the district is asking residents to complete an online survey to provide input on what they think are the quality of life and crime issues in the district. Those surveys will be compared to surveys the officers completed to determine the starting point for projects in the sectors. “It makes me feel good people are interested in this and want to see something happen,� Bauer said. Neville said implementing the program is a slow process, but officers are committed to putting forth the effort to make it successful and improve the lives of everyone in the district. “We do care,� he said. “We really do care.�

Sister is back. And West Siders who grew up attending Catholic schools won’t want to miss her return. The hit stage show “Late Nite Catechism 2: Sister Strikes Back� is coming to Price Hill for a one night performance to benefit The Women’s Connection. “This is a follow up to the original ‘Late Nite Catechism’ performance we hosted in September 2007,� said Aimee Shinkle, development director for The Women’s Connection. “The original performance was a huge success and very well-received.� Shinkle said “Late Nite Catechism� is an uproarious piece of theater that takes audience members back – sometimes nostalgically, sometimes fearfully – to the children they once were. The irrepressible Sister teaches an adult catechism class to a roomful of students. The audience members serve as her students. “It’s hilarious,� Shinkle said. In the sequel, Sister has received the blessings of the archdiocese and has assembled banners, filmstrips, mimeographed handouts, historical facts and hysterical insights as she instructs her class in an overview of Heaven and Hell, compar-

She also offers her personal list of sins for the new millennium. Shinkle said the show hits home with everyone who survived the ups and downs of going to Catholic school, and those who aren’t Catholic or didn’t attend a parochial school are able to appreciate the “suffering� of those who did. “I think it resonates with a lot of people who grew up on the West Side of Cincinnati, and it’s a great way to bring people together,� she said. “We’re very excited to bring the follow up to our area to benefit our center.�

The show starts at 8 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 11, at Seton High School. There is also a pre-party with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres from 6:30-8 p.m. Tickets are $25 for the show only, and $40 for the pre-party and show. All the proceeds from the event will go directly to The Women’s Connection. Shinkle said tickets are limited and seating is assigned on a first come first serve basis. When the center presented the original show three years ago it sold out, she said. For more information, or to purchase tickets, contact Shinkle at 471-4673 or

Annual parade marks end of summer

Get the lawn chairs ready. There are plots of sidewalk to claim in Cheviot. Labor Day is just around the corner, and on the West Side that means it’s almost time for the annual Harvest Home Parade. It won’t be long before lawn chairs line the sidewalks along Harrison Avenue and North Bend Road in anticipation of the parade, which kicks off the Cheviot-Westwood Kiwanis Club’s annual Harvest Home Fair. This year’s parade begins promptly at 6 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 9, at the intersection of Harrison and Frances avenues. Cheviot Mayor Samuel

Keller said he still has fond memories from the parades he attended as a child growing up in the city. “We would make sure to get down there real early to stake out our spot, and the parade wouldn’t get over until well after dark,” he said. “The parade is just a wonderful, wonderful event.” Ten parade divisions of veterans’ groups, Boy Scout and Girl Scout troops, marching bands, floats, local fire and police departments, dancers, gymnasts, community organizations, area sports teams and politicians will usher in the fair. The 151st annual fair runs through Sunday, Sept. 12, at Harvest Home Park. Kiwanis member Dave Backer, parade chairman, said the parade’s theme this

year is “Small Business Makes America Great.” In keeping with the theme, Backer said the 2010 grand marshal is John Murphy, proprietor of Murphy Insurance Agency Inc. in Green Township. Backer said Murphy is a longtime member of the Kiwanis Club, and his sons and grandsons are also members of the organization. “They’ve all done a great deal for our club,” Backer said. He said his favorite part of organizing the parade each year is seeing it all come together. “I have a great committee and we work all year round on the parade,” he said. “As soon as it’s over we start planning for next year’s.” Keller said the parade signifies the coming of autumn, and attending it or walking in it has come to be almost a rite of passage for West Siders. “It’s just a neat community event and it’s some-

Calling all bands Cheviot-Westwood Kiwanis Club member Dave Backer, chairman of the group’s annual Harvest Home Parade, said this year’s parade is short on music. He said fewer marching bands have signed up to participate in this year’s parade than in past years. Backer said the parade committee likes to have a band at the beginning of each of the parade’s 10 divisions, but so far they only have commitments from six bands. Band directors who would like to enter their marching bands in the parade can download an application form at, or call 661-7500 for information. thing the city of Cheviot supports wholeheartedly,” he said. “It’s one of the oldest and biggest parades in the Cincinnati area, and it’s a wonderful showcase of the community spirit and community pride we have in Cheviot.”

At that time the organization consisted of one entity called Wesley Hall which could service only 128 people. Wesley Services has grown with the addition of Lincoln Crawford, Cincinnati's only African-American not-for-profit nursing facility with rehabilitation and therapy services. It fosters and supports seniors seeking to remain in their homes as long as possible, with programs such as Home care services, MealsOn-Wheels and medical transportation. Heyd’s main duty now is to organize the executive committee of Wesley and act as a leader to work with the board of trustees. He also helps to set the mission of the organization. He was nominated for chairman by a committee after the previous chairman retired. “We are thankful for Dan's long-time service,” said Steve Smookler, executive director, Wesley Community Services. “His guidance on legal and business issues has been an asset to the Board, particularly with regard to the growth and expansion

There’s family time, work time and other time. This (Wesley) is other time,” Heyd said. “I can’t build stuff, but I can provide good organization skills. “I am fortunate to have been a part of a firm like Graydon Head since the beginning of my legal career, where the opportunity to get involved isn't just tolerated, it's encouraged – and for the right reasons. It's about giving back. Which, by the way, is how you develop as a person and as a leader.” Heyd is in good company at Graydon Head where all of the employees participate in community service. “Lawyers are actually concerned with being involved,” Heyd said. “Community Service is not mandated. People want to do what’s valuable to them.” The work of Wesley Services is particularly important to Heyd because of the demographic they help. “The elderly are sometimes the forgotten ones. It’s important to help them,” Heyd said. Heyd is involved in several volunteer organizations throughout the Cincinnati area including the Greater Cincinnati Scholarship Association Fund. He owes a lot of his support to his family and Christian faith.

School shopping

Students in need visited Greater Cincinnati-area Target stores to purchase backpacks, calculators, pens and pencils, art supplies, binders, clothing and other musthave supplies just in time for back-to-school. The Salvation Army and Target are helping a total of 90 kindergarten through 12th-grade students across the city gear up for the upcoming academic year and get ready to succeed in school with the Target School Spree. Each child, selected by The Salvation Army, was awarded an $80 Target GiftCard to purchase muchneeded back-to-school supplies.

HIGH SCHOOL | YOUTH | Editor Melanie Laughman | | 248-7573


By Scott Springer

Boys’ soccer in the western portions of the Tristate took its lumps in 2009, but better things appear to be on the horizon for all. Both Elder and Oak Hills finished with identical 5-9-3 marks last season and both share high hopes of improving. At Elder, where the Panthers are enjoying year two at the Panther Athletic Complex off Quebec, coach Keith Schaeper is looking to avoid a sluggish start in his second year on the job. “The boys were getting used to me a little bit and I had to sort out the team early,” said Schaeper of last season’s early losses. “We got thumped pretty good. I’m confident we’ll come out much better this year.” Schaeper has two all-GCL players returning in striker Cory Cason and midfielder Nathan Sexton. Of course, Elder must focus on

its league and Oak Hills must focus on the GMC, but to many, the annual Panthers/Highlanders soccer tilt is always a marquees westside event. Last season’s game resulted in a 0-0 tie. “That is always a fun match!” Schaeper said. “Both teams are pretty riled up. It’s a neighborhood brawl there.” Chimed in Oak Hills coach John Mirizzi, “That’s a pretty big event. All of our teams play, JV and varsity.” Mirizzi returns 11 seniors to a team that, like Elder, was 5-9-3. Among the Oak Hills seniors is fourth-year varsity player Michael Beam who will be counted on heavily. The Highlanders’ website lists the following goals for 2010: 3.0 team GPA, eight shutouts, a GMC title and a top five finish in the city. “That is something the players came up with this year,” said Mirizzi. “We asked the players to

Things look up for West Side boys’ soccer Keys to advancing Armed with 11 seniors, Elder coach Keith Schaeper believes the key to winning the GCL this fall is beating Moeller. “They were really young last year and they’ve got good talented young players,” said Schaeper of the Crusaders. “They’re picked at the top of the league this year and I would say it would be a dogfight between us and St. X for the second spot.” To advance in the GMC, Oak Hills is looking to get past Mason and Sycamore, two teams they couldn’t get by last season. Coach John Mirizzi’s Highlanders set goals, especially with 11 seniors coming back. Some of them are pretty lofty, like winning the league, but that’s what we’re shooting for.” At Taylor, an Oak Hills grad heads up the Yellowjacket program now. Eric Turner inherits a


were eliminated in the postseason by the Aviators late last October. After five years with the program, Eric Turner hopes to steer Taylor to the top of the Cincinnati Hills League in his first year as head coach. “I see us with a chance to make the top three if things fall into place and we avoid injuries,” said Turner. “I see Finneytown as our toughest test, but the CHL is so strong, every game will be tough.” At Western Hills, Randall Brugge led the Mustangs to four wins in his first season and sees Mt. Healthy and North College Hill as the toughest teams his young squad will face. Taylor team that was 6-8-3 in 2009. “We’ll rely a lot on our junior goalkeeper Tyler Hafer and our strong returning defense with seniors Logan Scholtes, Ben Webb, Eric Musser and Brandon Seibel,” said Turner. “We lost a large

amount of our goal scoring, but will rely on seniors Josh Simms and Randy Keyer primarily as our goal scorers.” Rounding out the westside scene is second-year coach Randall Brugge at Western Hills. After taking over a program that scored just 10 goals in 2008, the Mustangs found the net 30 times last year. Brugge has instilled his Marine Corps toughness at Western Hills but realizes it’s an uphill climb to gather soccer talent for the Mustangs. That’s not to say they don’t have talented kids. “I have one of the top kids in the city in Francis Gyeu,” Brugge said. “He’ll be a big leader for the team, plus he’s an honor roll student. They (Mustangs) go out there and they know they’re short on players. They play with their heart every day and stick together as a team.”

Off-field relations key for Mustangs By Andy Knight

More girls’ soccer

How will the Western Hills High School girls’ soccer team rebound from last season’s 2-13 record? For second-year coach Amy Martini, the answer lies not in how her players perform in practice, but in how they relate to one another off the field. “I’m trying to give them all the idea that they’re a team first even before they go out on the soccer field,” Martini said. “They’re all coming from different backgrounds, and I want to put all those backgrounds together and get the most out of it.” Martini, a standout as a player at Northern Kentucky University, is taking a hands-on approach as she settles into the task of rebuilding the Western Hills program. She often participates in drills and scrimmages in practice, a habit she said helps remind her players of their responsibilities and her high expectations of them. “They know the type of commitment, the type of work ethic that I expect from them,” Martini said. “Last year, sometimes it felt like I taught them more life lessons than soccer. Now it’s about teaching them more how to win instead of how to lose.” The Mustangs were a defensively oriented team last season, and Martini hopes that an abundance of youthful experience – five returning starters are juniors or sophomores – and the return of junior midfielder Courtney Bentley from offseason shoulder surgery will provide offensive fire-

The following information was obtained through returned coaches’ questionnaires or conference websites:

Oak Hills

Coach: Chuck Laumann, 20th season, 184-108-45 2009 records: Overall 10-36, Greater Miami Conference 51-3 (GMC - third place; Final No. 7 in Coaches’ Poll) 2009 tournament: Win 1-0 Seton; Win 3-1 McAuley; Loss 0-1 St. Ursula (penalty kicks sectional final) Key returners: Senior Niki Handlon, forward, 7 goals, 7 assists, 1st-team GMC, early commitment to Northern Kentucky University; senior Kelsey Laumann, forward, seven goals, 12 assists, First-Team GMC, early commitment to Northern Kentucky University; senior Kaitlyn Murphy, Keeper, returning from injury, early commitment to Morehead State University; senior Sam Amend, forward, midfield, 3 goals; junior Amber Kiley, forward, midfield, 3 goals; junior Emily Spraul, defender, sophomore Olivia Kilgore, forward, midfield, 1 goal; sophomore Danielle Reddington, defender Pre-season outlook: “The 2009 team’s success was centered around a strong, stingy defense. We allowed 14 goals in 19 games, with 10 shutouts. Due to graduation and early injuries, many questions will need to be answered during the time preparing for the season. We will be strong in the net, but we need to find the best combination along the back defensively. “The other major question power. “I hope we’ll be more balanced this year,” Martini said. “We’re going to be attacking more out of the backfield this year. I’m looking forward to having

will be who will solidify our midfield. Due to graduation, we have lost a key contributor to our successes last season controlling the midfield. I believe we have the ability to score with players who have much experience and have shown they can find the net. If we are going to succeed this season, as always, it is going to come down to keeping the other team from scoring, staying healthy, and sharing the ball. We will play hard and we will compete. It is just a matter of finding the right combination. Our schedule is very competitive and difficult, with most of the top teams on it. We will not have much time or opportunities to take our time. We will need to get it right quickly.”


Mercy finished 1-1-3 in the Girls’ Greater Cincinnati Conference and 8-5-3 overall in 2009. As a junior last year, midfielder Kelsey Zwergel was First-Team All-GGCL Scarlet.


Seton finished 0-3-2 in the Girls’ Greater Cincinnati Conference and 4-8-3 overall in 2009. As a junior last year, defender Mollie Williams was Second-Team All-GGCL Scarlet.


Taylor finished 2-5-0 in the Cincinnati Hills League and 411-1 overall in 2009. As freshmen last year, midfielder Cheyene Redding was SecondTeam All-GGCL Scarlet and defender Drema Keyer and midfielder Gretchen Kolkmeier were Honorable Mention. (Bentley) step up, because she was injured all of last year and she was still a key performer for us.” Western Hills will also count on contributions from seniors Danielle Rankin and

t A rst ce fi an gl Megan Miller. Rankin is making the transition from defender to forward. “I’d like (Rankin) to step up more offensively for us,” Martini says. “She played defense last year, and I’m anxious to see how having her as an option on the attack will help us overall as a team.” Junior goalkeeper Krystal Kelley will also be asked to provide leadership. Kelley’s versatility will also allow her to see time as a midfielder as the Mustangs try to build depth and develop more weapons on offense. “Krystal brings energy and a real spark on the field for the whole team to follow,” Martini said. The Mustangs face a schedule that Martini describes as “difficult but maintainable.” As one of only two members of the CMAC, Western Hills is forced to schedule most of its matches as non-conference games, which Martini says can present unique challenges. But the Aug. 23 opener against Hamilton could reveal a lot about whether her squad will exceed its total of two wins from a year ago. “That should be a true test of where we are,” she says. “I’m really anxious to see how they do. I know we’re going to have a better record than 2-12. The key will be leaving everything that happens outside of soccer off the field. If the girls all play as one and stay organized in general, I like our chances.”

BRIEFLY Mount picked for top

The College of Mount St. Joseph volleyball team has been picked by the 10 conference coaches to finish as HCAC runner-up this fall. Bluffton, who last year edged the Mount for the top spot in the conference, was the unanimous selection, picking up all 10 first-place votes. Hanover, Rose-Hulman and Defi-

ance followed the Lions in the poll, while Anderson, Transylvania, Manchester, Franklin and Earlham round out the poll. The Mount, which finished second in the HCAC last season with a 7-1 conference mark and a 24-10 record overall, will look to contend for their eleventh conference volleyball championship this season behind seniors Jamie Grauvogel, a

Harrison High School graduate, and Lyndsey Waldman, a Clermont Northeastern High School graduate. The duo earned First-Team AllHCAC honors last season after leading the Lions to the HCAC Championship match. Grauvogel led the HCAC in kills (549) and service aces (45), while finishing second in hitting percentage (.300).

Lancers soccer squad looks to build on youth By Andy Knight

If success in the Greater Catholic League depends on the right combination of talent, experience and luck, then the LaSalle soccer team hopes two out of three is good enough – at least early in the season. Coming off last season’s sectional final appearance, the Lancers said farewell to 11 seniors and return just four starters, but based on the team’s preseason practices, coach Steve Schulten isn’t worried. “It’s an inexperienced team, but they’ve brought a lot of energy and enthusiasm to our training sessions so far,” the seventh year coach said. Four sophomores could play their first varsity match in the opener at Lakota East. But while Schulten admits that his squad is still trying to find an identity, he is convinced that an experienced back line, keyed by defenders Brian Alben and Ben


Junior forward Samuel Tegge, on the ball, looks to be a scoring threat for the Lancers. With him in a July 27 preseason scrimmage against Fairfield are Cody Frey, second from left, and Ben Moeller, fourth from left. Moeller, will play an important role. Plus, LaSalle welcomes back talented goalkeeper Mack Robinson, who Schulten believes will be one of the premier players in the

city at his position. “No doubt, guys like Brian and Ben are going to have to be really strong leaders for us to be any good,” Schulten said.

Most of the Lancers’ veteran talent can be found up front, where forwards Adam Tullius, a senior, and Samuel Tegge, a junior, will be expected to create scor-

OH standout joins tennis hall Former Oak Hills High School tennis standout Joe Leytze joined an elite group of athletes as one of the newest members of the Cincinnati Tennis Hall of Fame. The induction ceremony was Aug. 14 at the Lindner Family Tennis Center in Mason – the day of the women’s semifinals and men’s qualifying round of the 2010 Western and Southern Financial Group Masters and Women’s Open. “It’s a great honor; there’s no doubt about that,” said Leytze, currently the women’s tennis coach at Anderson High School. Given his own career record and commitment to the game of tennis, his induction into the Cincinnati Tennis Hall of Fame seemed inevitable. Athletic Director Pam Scott said Anderson High School is excited about his induction and thrilled to have him return for his second year of coaching at AHS. “It is quite an honor and says a great deal about your program when you have someone coaching your athletes who has competed at the top of the game at all levels,” Scott said. “He obviously has great skills and knowledge of the game, but he is also able to teach the game in a fashion that is fun for high school athletes.” In his senior year at Oak Hills, he was named the 1979 Enquirer Player of the Year. He next hit the court

at the University of Kentucky where he played four years at the collegiate level and competed in the NCAA Tournament. “I found out that I’m the only tennis player from Cincinnati to have played in the Men’s Division I NCAA singles championship in the past 40 years,” he said. After college, Leytze played tennis professionally for three years. He said he enjoyed the experience of traveling the world playing the sport that he loved. After his tour in professional tennis, Leytze returned to Cincinnati to teach tennis and coach teams. He also enjoyed a few victories at local tennis competitions including the Cincinnati Metropolitan Tournament, which he won in 1988 and 1990. After 1990, work temporarily took Leytze away from tennis. Last year he joined Anderson High School as the girls’ tennis coach. And with this most recent round of recognition, he said he may look to further his involvement in teaching/coaching tennis. The induction into the Cincinnati Tennis Hall of Fame will not be his first enshrinement. In 1990 he was inducted into the University of Kentucky’s Tennis Hall of Fame. “I was one of the first four people to be inducted there,” he said. “That was a nice honor. It’s funny, when you’re in your 20s, it’s not as big a deal. When you get older you appreciate these things a little more.

The Colerain at Princeton game will air in its entirety at 11 p.m. High School Football Live, presented by Grange Insurance, will kick off the action each week, providing fans with commentary, features, and indepth pre-game coverage. The show will air at 5 p.m. for the Skyline Chili Crosstown Showdown doubleheader on Aug. 26 and will air 30 minutes before kick-off for the remainder of the schedule. Jeff Piecoro and Ray Crawford return as the pre-game shows’ cohosts. In addition to his pregame duties, Piecoro will also serve as sideline reporter during the games. For their fourth consecutive season, Brad Johansen and Dave Lapham will team up to call the games.

ing chances. Both are beginning their third varsity seasons, and their combination of skill and familiarity with Schulten’s program should help accelerate the learning process for the newcomers. “The enthusiasm that they bring to practice has been great,” Schulten said. Another strength that Schulten hopes will help carry his team early in the season is its versatility. “We have a lot of players that can play multiple positions, and many of them will move all over depending on the situation we find ourselves in,” he said. “We have a lot of guys who can play anywhere on the field.” Schulten said coaching a roster full of young players has meant a slight change in his approach to preparing his team for the season.

“With young guys, they’re still trying to get a feel for me,” he says. “They’re getting to know my personality a little better. The young guys have a lot to learn and a lot to take in. You have to try to be positive with them and reinforce what they do well so you don’t damage their confidence.” Ultimately, though, LaSalle’s success will rest with how quickly its untested talent gels. A league featuring area soccer heavyweights Moeller and St. Xavier promises to offer few soft spots on the schedule. “We’re going to find out how good we are very early,” Schulten said. “The GCL schedule is absolutely brutal, but come tournament time, a young team that’s gone through a schedule like this, we’ll be ready for a good run.”

Unity, not separation

A recent article in the Enquirer regarding the separation of Price Hill into divisions caught my attention. As a former resident and business owner, I think I can speak with some authority and concern. In my opinion, the community would be better served by eliminating the various divisions and regarding the community as one. As far as I remember, the original separation was done for funding reasons, which never seemed to work out as planned. I feel sure that the very people who are fighting for separation

Developers saw good opportunity in Price Hill First of two parts. By the late 1800s two rapid transit streetcars provided service to Price Hill, according to the Cincinnati Street Railway’s book, “Cincinnati by Trolley: The Elberon Avenue and the Warsaw Avenue Lines.” No longer was the area considered a “sparsely settled territory” as it had been described in a Cincinnati Commercial Gazette article September 29, 1893. In the Feb. 6, 190,2 Cincinnati Commercial Tribune, we learn that on the day before, a section and a half (960 acres) of Delhi Township had been annexed to the city of Cincinnati. Two Cincinnati Commercial Tribune articles published on March 2, 1913, were a harbinger of things to come. One told that the John A. Kreis mansion at Glenway Avenue and Rapid Run Pike was to be demolished to make way for a subdivision. The other article told of “hundreds of acres” in the community being prepared for similar construction that summer. Two subdivisions which were developed during this time period in Price Hill’s newly annexed western section were the Western View and the Overlook.

The Western View

The Western View subdivision is located on West Eighth between Rosemont and Sunset avenues. Its builders, William Botwin and Louis Tunick, were, according to the 1920 U. S. Federal census, Russian immigrants who arrived in the United States shortly after the turn of last century. We also learn in this census that they shared a two family home at 1252 Lick Run (Sunset) Ave. for a time. Botwin and Tunick were skilled house builders. In addition to Western View where they constructed mostly bungalow and four-square homes, we learn in a May 18, 1919, Cincinnati Enquirer ad that they also built the brick and stucco homes found in Hermosa Park (West Eighth, Hermosa and Carnation avenues). Later advertising placed in The Cincin-

nati Enquirer on May 23 and 30, 1926, credits them also with building the “English type brick” homes on Jamestown Avenue, west of Karen R. Sunset Avenue. Arbogast Plans for Western View Community submitted Press guest were to the Hamilton columnist County Recorder on April 13, 1916, and according to a retrospective article May 1, 1921, in The Cincinnati Enquirer, construction began shortly afterwards. Another May 20, 1917, ad in The Enquirer promoted Western View as being “in one of the most select sections of Price Hill … just opposite St. William’s Church and School.” We also learn in the May 1 article that the last Western View home was sold to George S. Binder for $14,500. Others who resided in Western View and mentioned in the article were: J. E. O’Hara, Mary Crow, Edward J. Ginter, Charles H. Miller, M. E. Bosken, Reuben J. Wood, Henry A. Schmidt, J. A. Mersman, Sigmund Frietsch, James Doyle, John G. Fratz, George G. Meiners, Miss M. Coughlin, Miss A. Braun, and Mrs. R. Lammerding. A look through real estate news for the 1930s and early 1940s did not readily reveal new ventures for Botwin and Tunick. Louis Tunick died Jan. 24, 1953, at 70. His obituary in The Cincinnati Enquirer said that he built his first house in 1912 at 3913 West Liberty Street. At the time of his death he headed the firm of Tunick Builders, the obituary stated. William Botwin died Dec. 28, 1976, an obituary in The American Israelite revealed. Both are buried in Judah Touro Cemetery, according to their obituaries. Karen R. Arbogast lives on Leona Drive.

Electric line opened westward travel Sayler Park had all kinds of transportation from its beginning. There was traveling by river in the beginning, the canal in 1850, commuter train after the Civil War and the interurban railways in 1900. The interurban was sold to the Cincinnati Street Railway which was became the Cincinnati Transit Co. The Cincinnati Lawrenceburg & Aurora Electric Street Railroad Co. built an electric street railway that ran down Lower River Road (now Gracely Drive) following U.S. 50 through Addyston and North Bend to Lawrenceburg and Aurora, Ind. It opened in April 1900. Construction was supposed to be completed in January, but the rail mills were overloaded with orders. Eventually construction speeded up, and the first car ran down the tracks between Anderson Ferry, Addyston and North Bend in April. Two weeks later the tracks were completed over the North Bend hill to Cleves. By June the railroad ran to Lawrenceburg, and two weeks later to Aurora. A branch of the line also ran the Whitewater Valley to Harrison. A power station and car barn was located between Addyston and North Bend. The site housed a repair and painting shop for cars and power plant to generate electric power. The cars were the same on both ends, so they could reverse direction. To switch directions the motorman would pull down the wires on one side and take his hook to the other side

and connect them up again. The backs of seats reversed so passengers could face the other direction. Steel wheels on steel tracks did not provide very much traction going up hills. The climb was slow, so the car had to rev up the power after leaving Birch Lane (Lowland) in Fernbank to cross the trestle over the Muddy Creek. The car often stalled and had to back to the bottom and start all over again. The other side was also a challenge. Motorman normally checked the air back and emergency brakes before going down the hill to make sure they worked. There were plans to extend the line west to Rising Sun, Madison Ind., and Louisville, Ky. Those plans were never implemented. In 1913 it rained four inches in two days in Indiana. That sent the Miami and Whitewater Rivers over their banks. The bottom lands were flooded sweeping away barns, outbuildings, railway stations, houses and all sorts of property as it raced along. Bridges were swept away, regardless of their supports. At Elizabethtown, Ohio, the waters were temporarily checked at the embankments of the Cincinnati, Lawrenceburg & Aurora electric line and the Big Four Railroads. But the water eventually pushed over the embankments, bridges and all obstructions before it and sped on to overthrow the gigantic steel bridge over the Miami that had only recently been built to replace the famous old “lost


bridge.” This Betty Kamuf bridge was the longest single Community span bridge in Press guest the world at the columnist time. Within 30 minutes it was at the bottom of the river, a mass of twisted iron and broken concrete. Damage doomed the railroad. It was forced into receivership, and never emerged for 15 years. In 1928 the railroad reorganized. But the line only survived until 1930 because of operating losses. It was purchased by The Cincinnati Street Railway. Six miles from Anderson’s Ferry to Fernbank were converted to 5-2 1/2 gauge and service cut back to Fernbank. Passengers in Addyston, North Bend, Cleves, Aurora and Lawrenceburg were left stranded. Electric railway service was operated by Cincinnati Street Railway as route 30 until 1941, then under Cincinnati Transit Company as bus service was route K, and now SORTA route 50. The lightweight cars were sold to the Sand Springs Railway at Tulsa, Okla., and are in a museum in Illinois. Some of the bridge remains are visible in Addyston, where East Main turns into Hillside Avenue. This is where you’d get off of River Road to get on East Main or Hillside Avenue.

What’s a true Price Hillian? Sometimes it gets very difficult to know if you are really a true Price Hillian. Take the case of Tom and Jerry. They were born some 80 years ago in the shadows of Holy Family Church. They played together on a team that was called Price Hill Merchants, all the sponsoring merchants were from the neighborhood or businesses along Warsaw Avenue. They rode the Price Hill Incline to Eighth and State to play a team from the Eighth and State Boys Club. Their fathers belonged to the Price Hill Civic Club. Suddenly the Incline ran no more and they now rode a bus that was called the East Price Hill bus. Later they attended Elder High School and played football with some classmates from St. Michael School who said they were from Eighth and State. As they grew older, they both

moved further out on the hill they went to the Overlook Theater and bowled at Overlook Lanes. After bowling, they went several doors up the street to have a coney at Price Hill Chili. As they had children one boy dated a girl who lived on Covedale Avenue, but she actually lived in Delhi Township. She attended Covedale School, which was in Green Township, and most of her classmates were from Price Hill As Tom and Jerry got older, a friend asked them to belong to the Southwest Improvement Association, which represented people in Southwest Price Hill. In retirement they began to play golf with the Price Hill Oldtimers. One day when they went to play their fellow golfers were ready to throw them off the team. You see, the morning paper had listed their homes as being in Covedale. To make matters worse, when they came home from golfing, the

Skirt Game hits a home run for charity

It was the first time this Delhi Township family witnessed the spectacle of the Delhi Skirt Game and said they were having a ball. From left is Justin Brons, Tricia Brons, Paisley Schlimm and Amy Thompson.


Enjoying the Delhi Skirt Game action and their icy treats are, from left, Julianna Potavin, 9, Green Township; Hannah Butts, 5, and her sister Morgan Butts, 9, both of Delhi Township.

The Aug. 6 Delhi Skirt Game was more than just a bevy of prom queens on the dusty field. For starters, two of the Skirt Game’s long-time volunteers were honored. The families of Kenny Lipps and Terry Garrett received plaques in honor of both men’s contributions. “This is our first Skirt Game without Terry,” said Jennifer Garrett, shortly after the family received the plaque and released red, white and blue balloons at the pitcher’s mound. “This is a sad time for us, but we wanted to do something special for Terry.” They did indeed – giving a $500 donation to the Skirt Game as well as bidding another $500 to throw out the first pitch. That auction was a first for the Skirt Game and while he lost in the bidding action to the Garrett family, Kevin Fritz did ante up $450 to coach first base. “The Skirt Game helped my mom, Carol, last year and I wanted to give something back for all they’ve done,” Fritz said. Along with the firsttime auction proceeds and the money from raffles and concessions at the event, the Skirt Game also netted $2,500 from the players’ traditional Girls’ Night Out. Players line up on Delhi Road with buckets to collect donations and give

It was also the first time for several of the players to don women’s wear and take the field. Greg Schroeder, 20, said he was more than happy to spend a night of his leave from the U.S. Coast Guard playing a wacky game of

softball along side his dad, Tom. The 2008 Oak Hills High School graduate is stationed in Alaska. “I used to come to the games to watch my father and it always looked like fun,” Schroeder said preparing to don a blue evening gown. He said he joined the Coast Guard for similar reasons. “I wanted to serve in the military and my country, and I always thought it would be fun to jump out of helicopters.” Ryan Boehme, 19, said

his stint with the National Guard kept him from joining the fracas when he old enough to play last year. “This is my first time, but my dad, Bill, has played for a long time,” he said while sticking hairpins in his father’s unruly red wig. “It’s a good charity and it helps a lot of people.” Volunteering this year to serve as umpires of the unorthodox game were Fire Chief Bill Zoz, Police Chief James Howarth and Delhi Athletic Association President Don Jasper. Zoz said his emerald green gown was designed and made “especially for me by Brian Schira’s mom, Lizanne Schira.” Schira served both the Delhi and Colerain township fire departments and died fighting a fire in Colerain Township. Included in the list of nearly 150 individuals and families who have been assisted by the Skirt Game, are this year’s recipients Emily McKinney, Laura Ruwan and the family of Doug and Tracy Nienaber.

Delhi-Price Hill Press

The current of life today is not kind to us When we’re young we dream about how we’re going to change the world. When we grow older we find it’s hard enough trying to keep the world from changing us. There is an inexorable current in life that swirls and rubs against us as it flows. Like water running over a solid rock, it can wear us down, a little bit here, a little bit there. Our positive ideals and dreams can be gradually worn away until we become disfigured and not at all as we intended. Life’s current that flows against us today is certainly not kind to us. Nor is it designed to form us in healthy ways. It has become more coarse, violent and self-centered. Our civilization is los-

ing its civility. A symbol of today’s harshness can be found in Father Lou te x t rhe m ee Guntzelman f i g h t i n g Perspectives s p o r t s . Participants punch, kick and bloodily pound each other as the audience applauds. For a moment we can imagine we’re back watching the brutality of the Roman coliseum! Television, newspapers and movies show us homeless people beaten with baseball bats, women being stoned to death for adultery, children murdered, our young children murdered,

the Taliban seizes 10 unarmed people dedicated for years to helping the poor and sick, marches them into the woods and shoots them down. Do we experience shock or revulsion? Or are we inured to life’s pitiless current? There seems to be a constant dumbing down of the finer things of life. Our country, formerly in the first place in the world in the percentage of those gaining college degrees, has now fallen to 12th place over the last 30 years. “Spend more money and we’ll be back as No. 1,” we think. Really? Spending more money accomplishes everything? Does spending money create civility? Right now we’re practicing denial. Who wants to

hear that the sky is falling, that drugs are spreading, and that the food we thought was good for us isn’t? We don’t want to hear it. So, we live as though it isn’t true. Mental health experts urge us to be more proactive. Sometimes we must learn how to swim upstream to reroute the current of life that is diminishing us. We have so many good things to protect, preserve and enjoy – the people we love and who love us; more opportunities than we realize; good books, music, art and athletics to uplift and inspire; and a spirituality that brings inner peace. In the fading days of the Roman Empire the leaders of the people thought that “bread and circuses” were

the political solution. They would divert the common people from realizing the disintegration of their country. Hopefully, we’re not ready for our fading days yet. It’s time to use the adult and insightful minds we’ve been given to keep from losing all our youthful dreams. G.K. Chesterton wrote: “There is a kind of work which anyone can do, but from which many people shrink, generally because it is very hard work, and sometimes because they fear it will lead them where they do not wish to go. It is called thinking.” It is hard to fight a current. Sometimes we talk a good game but really don’t want to expend the effort to go where our hearts and minds tell us we must go.


There is an inexorable current in life that swirls and rubs against us as it flows. Like water running over a solid rock, it can wear us down, a little bit here, a little bit there. Chesterton’s quote calls us to think. See what’s happening to us. Then adopt the motto of the City of Blue Ash that has worked so well: “Aspire! Achieve! Advance!” Father Lou Guntzelman is a Catholic priest of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati. Contact him at columns@ or P.O. Box 428541, Cincinnati, OH 45242.

Don’t skip the Skype when traveling overseas Traveling overseas can be quite expensive, especially when you consider the exchange rate with the U.S. dollar. So I thought I’d share some of the best ways I found to get cash in the local currency, as well as to make calls back to the U.S. without breaking the bank. It used to be the best way to get cash while overseas was to go to a local ATM and get the local currency. That gives you the best currency exchange rate and it’s less expensive than going to a money exchange store. But now many local

b a n k s h a v e started charging a 3 percent conversion fee to use a forATM, Howard Ain eign just as Hey Howard! h a p p e n s with most credit cards when you use them outside the country. But there’s a way you can avoid all these conversion fees. All it takes a little planning. Institutions like Union Savings Bank offer an ATM card but don’t charge any fees at all. Officials there tell me you

may have to pay a fee imposed by the ATM you use, but Union Savings won’t charge anything. So, allow a few days to set up a checking account at a conversion-free bank and get an ATM card there before your trip. Most credit cards also charge a conversion fee ranging from 2.7 percent to 3 percent, depending on the card you use. However, cards issued by Capital One don’t charge any conversion fee at all. I got such a card to for the express purpose of using it outside the U.S. Often when calling back to the U.S. you have to pay

what can amount to expensive international calling charges. But, I found if you have access to WiFi while on vacation, you can save a bundle. I used my iPod Touch, which is not a phone, and downloaded Skype, which most people use to carry on conversations using computers. Skype also allows you to call a landline phone and talk using your computer. So, using my iPod Touch, which is small enough to put in my pocket, I walked around, found local places advertising free WiFi, and

made my calls to the telephones back home. The only thing I needed to get before I left the U.S. was a set of earbuds that included a microphone in the cord. Skype has a 30-day free trial period which both my brother Stewart and I used when we went outside the U.S. Stewart found Skype to be very good, with a clear connection, but only when he had a strong enough WiFi signal. I also found Skype worked perfectly and was simply amazed at the clarity

of the calls. Going over your free trial period cost less than $7 a month, but it’s well worth it when you compare it with the cost of an international cell phone calling plan. Bottom line, a little planning can save you a lot if you’re considering travel outside the U.S. Howard Ain answers consumer complaints weekdays on WKRC-TV Local 12.

Favorite recipes are shared among friends, readers Today and next week I’m sharing some favorite recipes – the ones that readers request throughout the year. If you have a favorite dish that everyone raves about, I’d love for you to share it. Try the frozen fruit cocktail dessert or sorbet for a cool ending to the recordbreaking hot days we’ve been having.

Lela Groene’s heirloom frozen fruit cocktail dessert

“This was a favorite at holidays and other special meals,” Lela wrote.

Rita Heikenfeld Rita’s kitchen

Make sure you use evaporated, not sweetened condensed milk, for t h i s dessert. 3 oz. c r e a m cheese,

softened 2 tablespoons lemon juice 1 tablespoon maraschino cherry juice (from jar) 2 ⁄3 cup evaporated milk 16 large marshmallows 16-oz. can fruit cocktail, undrained

Follow Community Press sports on Twitter


⁄4 cup chopped maraschino cherries. Mix together cheese and juices, and let stand. In a saucepan, combine milk and marshmallows. Stir over medium heat until marshmallows melt. Remove from heat. Stir in cream cheese mixture. Mix in fruit cocktail and cherries. Line a 12-cup muffin pan with paper muffin cups. Spoon mixture evenly into muffin cups. Freeze until firm. Remove from tin, still in paper muffin cups, and serve frozen. They will thaw just a little on the serving plate.

Jayne Homsher’s bleu cheese coleslaw

Madeira resident Jayne Homsher shares her version. Feel free to add more bleu cheese if you like. 1

1 ⁄2 lbs. green cabbage, shredded 2 carrots, peeled and shredded


⁄4 cup sweet onion, finely chopped 1 ⁄3 cup cider vinegar 3 tablespoons sugar 1 ⁄3 cup mayonnaise 1 ⁄3 cup sour cream 1 ⁄3 cup crumbled bleu cheese Salt and pepper to taste Combine cabbage, carrots and onion. Heat cider vinegar and sugar to boil. Toss with vegetables and let sit 15 minutes. Drain the vegetables well and combine with remaining ingredients. Prepare at least two hours ahead or overnight so flavors can mingle.

Helen Sarky’s Lebanese vegetarian green bean stew

Anderson Township reader Helen Sarky sent me this recipe. These beans are always served in some fashion at the famous Lebanese festival held at St. Anthony’s of Padua

1 pound fresh or frozen green beans, cut into 2-inch lengths 2 tablespoons olive oil 1 ⁄2 cup sliced thinly onions 1 tablespoon minced garlic (opt.) 1 ⁄4 teaspoon ground cinnamon or to taste Salt and pepper to taste 2 teaspoons chopped fresh mint 11⁄2 cups diced tomatoes 1 cup water or chicken stock 1 tablespoon lemon juice Heat oil over medium heat until hot. Add onions and sauté until caramelized (three minutes); add garlic and sauté another two minutes. Stir in cinnamon, salt, pepper and mint and keep stirring. Add tomatoes, water and lemon juice and keep stirring. Add beans and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, cover pan and cook until tender, about 20 minutes. Serve over a bed of cooked rice.

Five-minute fruit sorbet

Any canned fruit works well. Fruit cocktail and apricot are favorites at my house. 1 can, 16 oz. or so, fruit in heavy syrup 1 tablespoons lemon juice 1 teaspoon vanilla (opt.) Place unopened can in freezer for at least 12 hours or until frozen. Submerge unopened can in hot water for a minute to loosen edges. Transfer contents to food processor or blender in batches if necessary, cutting into several chunks. Process or blend until smooth, about half a minute. Add lemon juice and blend. Scoop into balls and serve right away or refreeze up to eight hours. Rita Nader Heikenfeld is an herbalist, educator and author. E-mail columns@community with “Rita’s kitchen” in the subject line.

100’s Lined up Yesterday at the Hilton Hotel Cincinnati Airport for the Vintage Guitar Show. By Mort Enright STAFF WRITER TheInternationalVintageGuitarCollectorsAssociation will be placing ads in newspapers, radio and running television spots this week asking people to bring in any and all guitars. Those that do bring in their guitars will be able to speak with collectors one on one and have their items looked at with an expert set of eyes. With the help of these IVGCA members, offers will be made to those that have vintage and modern guitars. Highest prices are paid for those made before 1970. All guitars will be examined and purchased including vintage guitars, acoustic guitars, banjos, any and all other types of musical instruments. Those that decide to sell their items will be paid on the spot. If you are like a lot of people you might have an old Vintage Guitar lying around. If you have ever wondered what it’s worth, now might be your chance to find out and even sell it, if you choose. Vintage guitars could be worth a lot according to the International Vintage Guitar Collectors Association also known as IVGCA. Collectors will pay a fortune for Vintage Guitars, Banjos, Acoustic Guitars and even Drum Sets for their collections. If they are rare enough, one could be worth over $100,000 according to David Mcintosh, Vintage Guitar Collector and IVGCA member. One 1960 Gibson Les Paul went for $100,000 to a collector in July of 2007. While that is an extreme example, many rare and valuable guitars are stashed away in attics, closets, basements, or in a garage around the country. The IVGCA and its collectors have organized a traveling event in search of all types of Vintage Guitars and Instruments. “Even common guitars can be worth a significant amount due to high collector demands,” says Mcintosh. The rarest guitars these collectors are looking for include: Martin, Gibson, Gretsch and Rickenbacker. These guitars always bring big premiums according to the IVGCA. While the IVGCA’s specialty is guitars, they are also examining other instruments, including drum sets, banjos, flutes, clarinets, etc. The IVGCA says “You never really know what you have until your item is evaluated by experts. Whatever kind of instrument you may have, bring it in to our experts. Think about it. You could walk away $100,000 richer!” So, whether you have one instrument you think might be valuable or a large collection you recently inherited, you can talk to these collectors for free. If you’re lucky, you may have a rarity worth thousands. Either way, there is nothing to lose and it sounds like fun. CE-0000415957

graduates are now Fifth Third Bank employees. Other Project SEARCH graduates of Fifth Third Bank campuses have been hired at various businesses, including Berean Book Stores, Wal-Mart, and various local doctor offices. Project SEARCH operates as a special, rotating internship program for high school students.

three work experiences for 10 weeks at a time to build their skills in various job settings. The students receive credit toward high school graduation rather than pay for their work. Upon completion, the students are prepared to enter the workforce. The fourth annual Tee Off for Project SEARCH, which is presented by Fifth Third Bank’s Leadership Program participants, is Saturday, Sept. 25, at Glenview Golf Course.
