Seton adapting to today’s students

By Kurt Backscheider

PRICE HILL — Seton High School has launched a new approach to education this school year, complete with upgraded technology, new classroom furniture and a new schedule. “There’s a shift in culture here at Seton and we’re ready to celebrate it,” said Anna Downey, the assistant principal of academics. “We’re moving from a teaching culture to a learning culture.” Historically, she said education in this country has been rooted in teacher-driven instruction, in which a teacher stands in front of the class and presents material. While that may work for some students, it’s not ideal for all, especially for today’s students. To better serve students and empower them to be engaged in the learning process, Seton Principal and CEO Donna Brigger said administrators and faculty have worked hard to create an environment fostering collaborative learning. A large aspect of that was adopting a new schedule, she said. The new schedule features three different class schedules – a seven-period day, a four-pe-

riod day and a three-period day. Brigger said the schedule provides more learning time for students and allows teachers to meet three times each week in Professional Learning Communities to plan curriculum and collaborate. The Professional Learning Communities will also


allow students a chance to meet with teachers, she said. “We want to listen more to student voices,” she said. “Learning is a participatory activity.” The main goal is to improve student learning and fulfill the school’s mission of preparing

all students for a life of faith, service and leadership through academic excellence, Brigger said. Another aspect of creating a collaborative learning environment was achieved by the school’s Legacy of Learning Campaign. Through donations

from alumnae and friends of the school, Seton was able to buy new desks and chairs for its classrooms this year and install 65-inch flatscreens in each classroom that interact with students’ tablet computers. Jennifer Dunaway, Seton’s development director who coordinated the fundraising campaign, said students had been using wooden desks dating back to 1957 and metal and composite desks from 1974. “That was the last time we had any updates to the classroom furniture,” she said. “We wanted to create a 21st century environment for our students. The classrooms are now open and students are able to be mobile and work together.” Downey said the new furniture, state-of-the-art flatscreens and new schedule are all tools Seton is using to transform education. Throughout it all, she said the faculty and staff have been dedicated and have embraced the transition from being delivery agents to teachers who inspire and encourage student centered learning. “It’s all based on research and we’ve researched this for many years,” she said. “It’s helping us meet the needs of today’s students.”

CHEVIOT — Children are now back in the classroom and Labor Day will be upon us very soon. As Mother Nature prepares to paint the leaves with her autumnal brush, the West Side has one final tradition to celebrate before summer draws to a close. Summer in these parts can’t officially end until the community has gathered for “The Biggest Little Fair in Ohio.” The 154th annual Harvest Home Fair, presented by the Kiwanis Club of Cheviot-Westwood, is set for Thursday, Sept. 5 through Sunday, Sept. 8. Festivities kick off with the annual Harvest Home Parade at 6 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 5. “I’ve been going to the fair since I was in a stroller,” said Ben Clinkenbeard, a Green Township resident and Kiwanis

Club member who is serving his third and final year as the fair’s chairman. “It’s a tradition that has held on all these years. It’s the last big event of the summer.” He said this year’s fair will feature all the family-friendly attractions West Siders have come to love, such as the 4-H livestock exhibits, art show, horse show, general exhibits, rides and stage shows. Those attending the fair should especially make time to stop by the flower show, he said. “They are expecting a lot of great flowers this year because of the cooler weather and rain we’ve had,” Clinkenbeard said. Live music will once again be a highlight of this year’s event, he said. Each night will feature a headlining music act, beginning with the Danny Frazier Band on Thursday evening following the Harvest Home Parade.

Art museum head to judge at Harvest Home


Entries still accepted for fair’s art show

Continued from Page A1

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 Christopherson Sharon Christopherson are excited that Betsky will be a part of the art show. 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. Patton said there is

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 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.

fair Sunday night. “We’re hoping to bring in some nice crowds with the headlining acts this year,” Clinkenbeard said. The fairgrounds at Harvest Home Park are open again this year after the parade until 11 p.m. Thursday, he said. Hot dogs and pizza will be available for $1 and beer for $2 on the fair’s opening night Thursday. Fair hours are 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. Friday, Sept. 6; noon to 11 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 7, and noon to10 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 8. Admission is $5 for adults. Children12 and younger get in free. Admission for everyone is free on Saturday and Sunday until 3:30 p.m. Clinkenbeard said the event wouldn’t be possible without the support of

the families and neighbors who attend the event and have helped it continue for more than 150 years. “That says a lot about the people and traditions on the West Side,” he said. “They continue to come back and support us every year.”

Everyone loves a parade

It won’t be long before folks start setting out lawn chairs to stake their claim along Harrison Avenue and North Bend Road for front row seats to the Harvest Home Parade. As always, the parade begins at 6 p.m. the Thursday after Labor Day, at the intersection of Harrison Avenue and Bridgetown Road. It will make its way up Harrison, hang a left on North Bend Road and end at Harvest Home Park. “People really love the

parade,” said Dave Backer, a Kiwanis Club member who has been chairing the parade for nearly two decades. “I think it’s tradition. It kicks off the fair.” The theme for this year’s parade and fair is the “Spirit of Our 76,” a nod to the Kiwanis Club’s 76th anniversary and a play on the “Spirit of ‘76” phrase commemorating the nation’s independence, he said. Dwight Young, a Kiwanis Club member and founder of BLOC Ministries, will serve as the grand marshal of this year’s parade. Ten parade divisions featuring high school marching bands, fire and police departments, dance teams, Boy Scout and Girl Scout groups, military veterans, cheerleading squads, the Syrian Shriners, community organizations, neighborhood businesses and, of course, politicians will march their way through the heart of Cheviot, Backer said. “This is the first year in probably five years that we’ll have 10 school bands,” he said. “We’ll have a band leading each division.” For details about all the events at this year’s fair and parade, visit



Green Township to dedicate its 9/11 memorial

GREEN TWP. — It’s been nearly 12 years since the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks claimed the lives of more than 3,000 people. Each year on the anniversary of that tragic day people throughout the country gather for ceremonies to remember the innocent victims who died and the first responders who were killed trying to save them. Green Township leaders invite community members to a special 9/11 event this year. At 8:40 a.m. Wednesday, Sept. 11, the township will host a ceremony to dedicate its new 9/11 memorial. The township’s commemorative monument, which will stand in front of the administration building, was made with a piece of steel from the World Trade Center in New York City. Recovered from Ground Zero, the 24-foot steel beam was donated to the Green Township Department of Fire & EMS in August 2011 by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. The township cut the beam in half, donating one piece to the Cincinnati Fire Museum and keeping the other piece for use in creating a memorial. “The memorial itself will be very nice,” Green Township Fire & EMS Chief Douglas Witsken said.

“We think it will get a lot of visitors.” The dedication ceremony will include speeches from elected officials, a blessing of the memorial, a moment of silence for the victims of the terrorist attacks, bagpipe music and personal reflections of 9/11 from Green Township District Fire Chief Ed Thomas, who serves with Ohio Task Force 1 and assisted with search and rescue efforts at Ground Zero following the collapse of the World Trade Center towers. Witsken said the memorial is dedicated to all who were lost on 9/11, and the firefighters, police of-

ficers and paramedics who made the ultimate sacrifice. He hopes the memorial serves as a constant reminder to remember those who died in New York City, at the Pentagon in Washington, D.C. and in the field outside Shanksville, Pa. It’s important we never forget the events that transpired on 9/11, he said. “Our country always has to stay alert and maintain a resolve to meet all the challenges threatening our freedom,” Witsken said. Green Township Trustee Chairman Rocky Boiman encourages residents to attend the dedication. “It should be a great event,” he said. “The memorial really is something to behold.” He said the memorial will be a way for residents to forever remember the victims and honor the heroics performed on 9/11.

Westwood Art Show marks its fifth anniversary By Kurt Backscheider

WESTWOOD — The grounds at Westwood Town Hall will once again bustle with people taking in the arts, music and food. The fifth annual Westwood Art Show is set for 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 14, at town hall, 3017 Harrison Ave. “It will be a lot of fun for all ages,” said Jessica Thayer, a Westwood resident and artist who is coordinating this year’s show. Presented in partnership with the Westwood Civic Association, she said the free outdoor exhibit features works by more than 70 area artists, a variety of food vendors and live acoustic music. Thayer, who is in her first year organizing the

show, said she’s made a few changes to this year’s event. There are more craft areas for children, including children’s craft tents sponsored by the Cincinnati Recreation Commission, Broadhope Art Collective, the Girl Scouts and Westwood Works, she said. Upon arriving, she said guests will be able to grab a brochure listing artist information, music and show times and a map of the grounds. Seating will also be available for patrons around the stage and food areas to provide a more comfortable atmosphere, she said. “We look forward to a friendly community gathering with artists, musicians, local food vendors, volunteers, sponsors and, of course, our

We can celebrate our similarities and differences through art,” Hellman said. “Westwood is becoming an arts community and the neighborhood is filled with beautiful and talented people.” The art show has grown each year, and Thayer said more than 1,000 people attended last year. “I’m hoping for another great turnout,” she said. “Come out and enjoy the day.” For more information, visit or check out the Westwood Art Show page on Facebook.

MOUNT STUDENTS GIVE BACK THROUGH SUMMER PROGRAM Some students work just to earn a paycheck. Others work to give back. Dominique Springs works to give back. Springs, a senior studying communications and new media studies at the College of Mount St. Joseph, works in the public relations office of ProKids – an organization that had helped her when she was younger. By the time Springs was 15, she had been in three different foster homes, and at age 16 got involved with the ProKids program. ProKids is a nonprofit agency that provides volunteer advocates for abused and neglected children in Hamilton County who are in the child protection system. Springs left the program once she turned 18, but kept in touch with the organization. Because ProKids had helped her, she decided to help others. Springs is employed at ProKids partially through the Summer Employment Program at the Mount. The Summer Employment Program matches Mount students with an organization to work a summer job based on the needs of the organization and the financial needs of the student. The SC Ministry Foundation funds the students’ salaries; the non-profit organizations chosen to benefit from the program are local grantees of the SC Ministry Foundation. “The Summer Employment Program is an excellent opportunity for students to get practical experience for possible future careers, and also to earn some money over the summer,” said Peggy Smith, coordinator of the Summer Employment Program at the Mount. “It also impresses on the students the

importance of giving back to their communities, in the spirit of the mission of the Mount.” Tevin Byers is another Mount student who gives back to the community through the Summer Employment Program. Byers, a junior psychology major, is spending his summer working at Santa Maria Community Services in Sedamsville. Santa Maria is a nonprofit organization that provides services such as Meals on Wheels, life skills training and wellness programs. As a program coordinator assistant, Byers helps to organize volunteers, prepare for events and programs and assist with Meals on Wheels. He is also working on a volunteer video that will feature the Meals on Wheels program.

“It was something I knew I would like,” he said. “What I really love doing is helping people.” Byers says he ultimately wants to be a child counselor with his own practice, and hopes that his experience with Santa Maria will help him achieve his goals. Springs says she also hopes that her time working with ProKids will one day lead to a fulltime job working in public relations, but is also happy that she had the experience working with the organization. “Everyone has such a passion for what they do,” she said. “They’ve all been here for a long time and they really love it. These people are working to really help make a change in kids’ futures.”

Along with all the new freshmen starting school Aug. 13, several new teachers, staff members administrators joined the McAuley High School community New to McAuley are: » Susan Barbee is a second generation McAuleyan from the class of 1991. Her mother and former McAuley teacher also is a McAuley alum. She is returning to teach at McAuley after taking a 10-year break to stay home with her three children. Barbee has a bachelor’s degree from Ohio University and a master’s degree from Xavier University. Her teaching experience also includes conducting classes at Xavier and the University of Cincinnati. She is teaching English at McAuley to juniors and seniors. » Mike Davis is teaching three sections of junior and senior theology classes and is McAuley’s campus minister. He spent the last 12 years teaching religion at St. Ignatius School in Monfort Heights, and, prior to that, was in the seminary for six years. He studied philosophy and theology at Pontifical College Josephinum in Columbus, Mount St. Mary Seminary and Thomas More College. Davis is also a Delhi Township trustee and enjoys music and performing. » Alana Hogue, a graduate of the University of Kentucky with a master’s degree in French, is teaching French at McAuley. Her husband, Alex, is a German scholar, and the couple has two cats. » Rachel Kless returns to McAuley to once again lead the Latin scholars to all sorts of state championships.

working guy on the offense,” the coach said. “Every time he gets the ball he runs in to the end zone no matter what yard line we are starting on. … He practices as hard as anybody I’ve ever seen.” Scholz and running backs coach Ray Jackson came to Oak Hills before the 2012 season and have kept Ruffin focused on the task at hand. “The first thing is always keeping me focused,” Ruffin said of his coaches. “They keep

my head in football and inside my school books, and that is all that keeps me going.” Jackson – who played at the University of Michigan and the University of Cincinnati – didn’t have much work to do with his top back when he came to Oak Hills. “He’s just a great all-around running back,” he said. “He can catch the ball, he can run inside zone, he can run outside zone, he has good speed, strong legs, great agility to make people miss. All the things great running backs have, Demarco has.” While his numbers have been great, the Highlanders have combined for just nine wins the previous two seasons and have not made the playoffs since 1999. Success in 2013 would mean the world to not only Ruffin, but to the entire senior class. “We’ve been trying to do that since day one and that is what coach Scholz is here to change,” the running back said. “We’re hoping we can (make a run) and have a good season this year.”

High standards pace TMC football

GREEN TWP. — Demarco Ruffin has no trouble finding motivation on the football field. The 5-foot-8, 163-pound senior running back from Oak Hills High School heard over and over he is too small to succeed in his sport. The senior has proved the critics wrong by racking up more than 2,500 rushing yards the previous two season combined in one of the most physical conferences (Greater Miami Conference) in the state. “I’ve heard it a lot,” Ruffin said referring to the fact that he is too small. “It motivates me every day. It just makes me come and work harder on the field.” As if he needed more motivation, a guy who has finished fifth and third in the GMC in rushing yards the last two seasons doesn’t have a single college offer on the table as he enters his final season in high school. “I’m still just playing football,” he said. “That is my biggest thing. That puts it over the top, so every day I just come in and give 100 percent on the field and it’s going to show.” Ruffin is a humble kid, as he doesn’t take much credit for the success he’s had as a Highlander. “All I can say is good playcalling and I have to give it to my offensive line,” the senior said. “They really make me some holes and I just try to take everything I can get.” While Ruffin likes to dish out credit, Oak Hills coach Dan Scholz loves what he gets from a guy whom defenses key-in on every play of every game. “When we come out to practice, there are very few plays where he’s not the hardest-

Only a select few Division III football programs have reached a point where a 7-3 record and rout of their biggest rival is considered a disappointing season. Thomas More College finished 6-2 in the Presidents’ Athletic Conference, but those two early season losses prevented the Saints from earning a fifth straight playoff berth. A six-game winning streak to close out the season was encouraging, but 2012 was still a disappointment for a program that has established itself as a perennial top 25 team. “When I think about it, it is good that we have such high expectations,” said head coach Jim Hilvert. “When you set a standard like that, when you expect at least nine wins and a PAC championship, less than that is not good enough.” The silver lining to last year was that the seniors were the first class in years to end the season with a win. Consistently qualifying for the playoffs means that, unless the Saints win the 32-team tournament and Stagg Bowl championship, they end the season with a loss. Last year, the Saints got to finish the season by setting all kinds of records in a 75-6 Bridge Bowl victory over rival College of Mount St. Joseph. “Everybody was hungry to finish off the season on a high note,” said sophomore free safety Kyle Fuller (Holy Cross). Fuller is one of several young starters on both sides of the ball this year. He has learned from the upperclassmen who were once in his position and expects to step into a leadership role in just his second season at Thomas More.

Thomas More College senior Alex Taylor, an Elder High School graduate, tackles this opponent in a game last year. THANKS TO THOMAS MORE COLLEGE

“The coaches do a good job of preparing you for a leadership role,” said Fuller, who led Holy Cross to a state championship two years ago. “Last year’s seniors left a legacy that made the program what it is and they really pushed us underclassmen to make us better.” The veteran leaders of the defense will help the new starters adjust. Defensive backs Jake Fishburn (Elder) and Alex Taylor (Elder) and lineman Tyler Combs (Highlands) provide senior leadership on the otherwise young defense. “We are young on defense, but very fast,” said Hilvert. “This is one of the most athletic defenses I’ve had.” The offense is led by the return of junior running back Dominique Hayden from injury and another year of experience for sophomore quarterback Jensen

Gebhardt, who went 6-1 after taking over as the starter last year. Thomas More has always benefited from a pipeline of local talent from both sides of the river, but the recent rise of Northern Kentucky programs like Cooper and Campbell County has provided the Saints with even more talented players who are accustomed to winning. “With the talent we have around here, it’s a huge addition,” said Hilvert. The Saints open the season on Sept. 7 at Capital University. The home opener is Sept. 28 against Waynesburg University. The team is eager to get back to the playoffs and hopes to avoid last year’s slow start. “We have some really good leaders,” said Hilvert. “We’re excited to get back on the field and compete.”

President ignores rule of law Barack Obama twice now has taken an oath to “faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and … preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States.” And within that Constitution is the following requirement of a president: “He shall take Care that the Laws be faithSteve Chabot fully executCOMMUNITY PRESS ed…” GUEST COLUMNIST I would submit that this president has, and continues to, violate his oath of office by knowingly and flagrantly ignoring his obligation to see that our nation’s laws are faithfully executed. The following are specific examples. President Obama doesn’t like the fact that Congress has refused to legalize illegal aliens who were brought into this country (illegally) as chil-

dren. So, he just unilaterally ordered his immigration service to ignore the law, and do so anyway. This flagrant violation of the law just happened to take place shortly before the 2012 election, when the Hispanic vote was considered so important. Next, welfare reform. I was around in 1996 when a Republican Congress and a Democratic president, Bill Clinton, passed historic welfare reform legislation which, among other things, implemented work requirements in return for receiving a welfare check. Some liberal groups got President Obama’s ear and convinced him that work requirements are demeaning and mean-spirited. So, in flagrant violation of the letter and spirit of the law, Obama unilaterally gave governors the power to weaken the work requirements. Fortunately, a lot of Republican governors chose to continue to enforce work requirements as enacted, but a

number of “enlightened” Democrat governors took advantage of the opportunity to weaken the work requirements, and thus greatly undermined welfare reform. Next, Obamacare. This is arguably President Obama’s most significant accomplishment (or greatest failure, depending on one’s point of view). Among other things, the law requires employers to cover employees under Obamacare, or pay significant fines (the employer mandate). Obama, without consulting with the elected representatives of the American people, the Congress, unilaterally announced that this aspect of the program would be delayed for one year. He’s breaking the law, or at the very least, not enforcing the law as it is currently written. Most recently, the Obama Justice Department has decided that our federal drug laws are too tough, so they’re just not going to enforce them.


Unbelievable! The bottom line is … it’s the president of the United States’ responsibility to see that our laws are enforced. To do otherwise is a violation of the sacred oath he took, twice, to “take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed.” In this respect, President Obama reminds me of another president who had a similar view about the law, Richard Nixon. Nixon was once asked if it was okay for a president to do an illegal act, if that president believed it was in the best interest of the country to do so. Nixon’s response was, “When the president does it, that means that it’s not illegal.” Of course, we know where Richard Nixon ended up with that kind of thinking. Republican Steve Chabot represents the 1st District. He can be reached at 441 Vine St., Room 3003, Cincinnati, OH., 45202, phone 513-684-2723; or by email at contact-me/.

CH@TROOM Aug. 21 question Should the U.S. continue to provide financial and military aid to Egypt following the military's overthrow of its democratically elected government and its deadly attack on protesters?

“I’m glad you asked that question since President Obama has absolutely no idea what to do in all of the Middle East, let alone Egypt. “As Egypt burns and thousands die in the streets, our president enjoyed another round of golf on Martha’s Vineyard. Now that he is back to work in the Oval Office we’d expect him to roll up his sleeves and get to work on these urgent problems. “But no, he’s planning a bus tour to visit his rah-rah supporters who will dutifully swoon at his every word of sarcasm towards Congress while totally ignoring the Middle East and all the other REAL problems he promised to solve in his first term. “For me to suggest what ‘the U.S.’ should do is pointless since there is a wide gulf between America’s goals and whatever goals Barack Obama, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and now Secretary of State John Kerry have in mind for Egypt, etc. “Obama supported the overthrow of former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak and the installation of President Morsi who replaced Mubarak through what were believed to be free elections. “That Morsi, a dedicated member of the well-known terror group, The Muslim Brotherhood, immediately set about reneging on his election promises and proceeded to suspend freedoms and constitutional law in order to create a Sharia Law caliphate cannot be ignored. “Perhaps Obama is sympathetic towards Morsi having deep personal feelings of his own regarding broken campaign promises.”

Aug. 28 question Should fans at sporting events have to conform to a “code of conduct”? What types of behavior should be regulated?

“A code of conduct is imperative at sporting events along with other large gatherings such as concerts. This is especially true when alcohol is involved. The Reds have recently cracked down certain over the line fans. The Bengals have their ‘Jerk Line’ for fans to call or text about intrusive behavior. They also have cameras that can seek out these actions. The Bengals annual home game versus Pittsburgh features at least 10,000 Steelers fans scattered throughout the stadium thanks to eBay and Stub Hub. This creates confrontations for fans hoping to just watch the game. Fans that are obnoxious, profane, lewd etc should be shown the exit and suspended from attending future games for at least one year. Watching from home on a HDTV with replay and the Red Zone sure solves these obtrusive fan problems and saves a lot of money. Go figure!”



A publication of

“Yes, sports fans' behavior should be regulated at events. With families around and small kids present, profanity and drunken or sober obnoxiousness should not be tolerated. Those aren't really the problem; the 'jerk line' takes care of that because ushers and officers will come and eject serious troublemakers. “The problem is when opposing fans come to an away game and scream, drink, and bullyrag home-team fans. Adding alcohol can make things get ugly quickly. Maybe we can pass a new city ordinance to make them stay in Pittsburgh!"


“Whatever rules the venue establishes should be published, posted, and even printed on the tickets. This way fans know what's expected. Then it's up to the fans to decide if they want to attend or not. If attendance suffers, I'm sure the rules would be adjusted.”


“If the players on the fields abide to the code of conduct, so should the fans, on all levels. Fans, especially sideline parents, forget this is the sports players game, not theirs.”


“Do we really need a code of conduct to act with consideration, dignity and respect around our fellow human beings and their children? Stay reasonably sober, refrain from foul language, don't spill food or drink on other people or into their space. In other words, be considerate of others around you who paid for seats and are also entitled to watch the game just like you are.”


“Yes, fans should conform to a code of conduct be it a youth, high school, college or pro game. Ideally it should be selfimposed where people conduct themselves in a respectful manner to those around them, players on the field and coaches and officials. Don't make a scene, don't embarrass or belittle any-

one. Treat others as you would prefer to be treated. “That being said, I don't realistically thing a code of conduct works for all people. There are always a few that are an embarrassment to the human race. If at all possible they should be asked to leave if self-control is beyond their command. “Hate to say it but some people feel the need (maybe its empowerment for those who feel taken advantage in life) to make a jerk out of themselves. Give them their money back ... suggest that they stay away.”


“Fans at any type of event are sharing the stadium or arena with thousands of other people. These people often range from children to grandparents. It is every person's responsibility to behave in a way that does not disrupt or offend. Everyone should be able to enjoy the game and express their enthusiasm without spoiling it for those around them. Do unto others ...”


“Some behavior is not acceptable. Most is during a 'sporting' event. After all the players all have shown nonacceptable behavior! “Do not interfere with others space. No physical contact. But yelling for or against a team is OK. Control your language to what you would say to your grandmother! (I know there are some grandmothers it would not bother).”


“The fans at sporting events should be grown up enough to be able regulate their own behavior and not infringe upon others. “That means NO swearing, spitting (tobacco juice included), hitting, blocking the view, spilling of beverages on others, lewd T-shirts, drunken conduct, throwing up or belching. But isn't that what your mother taught you anyway? “Use the manners that your mother would approve of and all would be fine. Unless your mother swore, hit, spit, got drunk ... oh well.”

Why no tot lot fence?

At one time, Delhi Park had a tot lot of a size that children could play and run in a totally fenced in area, so if a mother or father had one, two or three children, they had time to watch without worry of one running outside the fenced area. The present tot lot has a fence only between the equipment and parking, and that was added only after complaints. I think Trustee Jerome Luebbers stated people should watch their children. One, you can; two or more, a fence is needed for the safety of the children. The park can spend money fencing ball fields, but not for the safety of our younger children. What is going to happen where the former tot lot was? It is only used by the geese and ducks and we know what they deposit on the field, limiting the use for playing.

The district welcomed several hundred parents, students, teachers, staff, residents and elected officials to the grand opening and dedication of the new Three Rivers Educational Campus during a ceremony Sunday, Aug. 18. “This is a monumental occasion for our community,” Three Rivers Superintendent Rhonda Bohannon said. “This is a day to say, ‘Thank You’ to the many people who worked so hard to make this dream a reality.” The $63 million school at 56 Cooper Road in Cleves houses Taylor High School and Three Rivers Elementary School, and

will serve students in pre-kindergarten through 12th-grade. Funded by a $37 million bond issue the community passed in May 2010 and $26 million from the Ohio School Facilities Commission, the 63-acre campus also includes the district’s transportation department, the future Fields of Dreams athletic facilities and a Performing Arts Center. The environmentally-friendly facility uses geothermal wells and natural lighting, and offers students state-of-the-art technologies as well. The roughly 2,000 students in the district will begin classes Monday, Sept. 9. “We have captured the

imagination of the students, faculty and community, and translated that into the educational campus we have today,” said Tom Bailey, head principal of the school. “I marvel at all we have accomplished and am eager to begin the new school year.” The dedication ceremony featured performances by the Taylor High School band, the Taylor Alumni Band and the Taylor Alumni Chorus; speeches from school board members and state legislators; a blessing of the school; a ribbon cutting ceremony and tours of the building. “We have applied ourselves with enthusiasm and vigilance in building this facility for our students, faculty, staff and community,” Bohannon said. “Everyone should be proud of what we have built and how this will benefit our community for years to come.”

Easy lasagna, healthy homemade power bars Tips from readers’ kitchens

When my kids were young our lives were busy, but nowhere near how busy their lives are now that they’re grown with families of their own. The requests I’ve gotten this week tell me a lot of you are in the same situation. Readers want Rita easy main Heikenfeld dishes RITA’S KITCHEN (pasta being the most popular) and healthy snacks. So here are two of my favorites.

From reader MaryAnn G. regarding the roasted tomatoes recipes: “I roasted several per your directions and raided my herb garden for basil, rosemary and oregano. After roasting I let them cool and removed the skin. After chopping them slightly, I tossed them (along with the delicious tomato broth) with some spinach tortellini and bacon. It made an amazing meal.”

Readers want to know

Sausage lasagna using uncooked noodles For Darren, a Western Hills reader who saw a sausage lasagna recipe in a magazine at the doctor’s office. He said: “It called for uncooked noodles. I didn’t want to tear the recipe out, but it looked so good.” Here’s one from my files. There are special “no-cook” lasagna noodles you can buy. Leftovers can be frozen and microwaved to reheat. 1 pound favorite sausage 26-32 oz. favorite pasta sauce 3 ⁄4 cup water 2 eggs, beaten lightly 11⁄2 pounds (24 oz.) cottage cheese 1 ⁄2 cup Parmesan 1 ⁄2 teaspoon each: garlic powder, dried basil and oregano

Rita’s sausage lasagna recipe features no-cook lasagna noodles.THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD 9 uncooked lasagna noodles 3 cups mozzarella

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Cook sausage. Drain. Stir in sauce and water. Simmer 10 minutes. Combine eggs, cottage cheese, Parmesan and seasonings. Spread 1⁄2 cup meat sauce into sprayed 13-inch by 9-inch pan. Layer with three noodles, a third of cheese mixture, meat sauce and mozzarella. Repeat twice. Cover and bake 45 minutes. Uncover, bake 10 minutes longer or until noodles are tender. Let stand 15 minutes before serving. Tip: Use a combo of beef and sausage, all beef

or turkey sausage.

No-bake grain/gluten-free power bars Daughter-in-law Jess found this on the Joyful Abode site. This is a protein-packed bar for kids and adults alike. Great for packing into kids’ lunch boxes, too and I like the fact that they’re grain/gluten free. I can never eat just one. I renamed the recipe to fit my slight adaptation. Check out Joyful site for step-by-step photos and my blog for more power bar recipes. 21⁄2 cups favorite nuts and

seeds (I used mixed nuts, flax and hemp seeds) 1 cup dried fruit (I used dried Michigan cherries, chopped) 2 cups shredded coconut 1 ⁄4 cup coconut oil 1 ⁄2 cup honey (I used raw honey) 1 tablespoon vanilla 1 ⁄4 teaspoon salt Cinnamon to taste

Roughly chop 1 cup of nuts and seeds. Place in bowl. Process remaining nuts and seeds in processor, or by hand, to make a finer chop. Add to bowl. Add fruit and coconut. Pour oil, honey, vanilla, salt and cinnamon in pan and, over low heat, cook until it boils gently, then

pour over fruit mixture and blend. Pour into sprayed 13-inch by 9-inch pan that has been lined with sprayed foil or parchment. Press mixture evenly into pan. Press real hard so mixture sticks together. Put plastic wrap on top to make pressing down easier. Cool completely and cut into bars. Can be frozen up to three months.

Tip from Rita’s kitchen

Don’t have coconut oil, which is a healthy oil? I believe a vegetable or olive oil will work, it just won’t have that extra element of flavor.

“What channel is your cable show ‘Love Starts in the Kitchen’ on?” Watch it on Time Warner Channel 8 or 15. Diluting concentrated fruit juices for kids: Younger kids, especially those in sports, may benefit from diluted fruit juice (make sure it’s got 100 percent vitamin C). It’s easier to digest, will hydrate and provide energy. Use at least twice as much water as is recommended on label.

WOW is SCORE’s July client of the month

WOW Window Boxes of Cincinnati is growing revenue faster than expected. The five-year-old company is SCORE’s July Client of the Month. Revenue was $400,000 last year and is on track to hit $750,000 this year. The Western Hills-based company has eight employees.

The business run by mother-and-son partners Sue and Bret Schneider designs floral and plant window boxes and containers for businesses and homes, changing out designs each season. WOW custom-builds each client window box, services each box, and provides an automatic drip irrigation

system to keep plantings fresh and vibrant. “Your home is your biggest purchase and window boxes increase your curb appeal,” said Bret Schneider of Newport. “The more pleasing you can make your home or business, the more welcoming it is, and more people are attracted to it.” Seventy-five percent of their business is residential, and about 25 percent is commercial, Schneider said. The Schneiders began working with SCORE counselor Dave Harris of West Chester about three years ago and meet with three or four SCORE team mentors monthly to learn more about marketing, business operations and planning. “The biggest area

Dave and SCORE counselors has helped us with is focus,” said Schneider. “They help us focus on planning, developing our business model and determining which way to go to focus on our core competencies. They ask questions we might not have considered and provide a valuable perspective.” Harris said when he first met with the Schneiders, he was impressed that they knew what they wanted to do and what product they wanted to sell. “They also knew who would buy their product and what it would take to sell the business,” he said. “We spent a lot of time brainstorming how they could reach their preferred customers with an effective marketing mes-

sage and how they could use their current customers to help. We also encouraged them to have a business plan and to

change it when they found programs that worked or didn’t work.” The Schneiders plan to eventually franchise the business, so were eager for different ideas and opinions, said Schneider. “Our counselor and others have provided us with invaluable direction and insight. SCORE is like a one-stop shop for helping build a small business.” SCORE-Cincinnati is the volunteer arm of the Small Business Administration. Its 100 counselors are working and retired executives who provide free marketing, finance and operations counseling and no-cost and low-cost seminars for small business owners and new entrepreneurs.

The LifeSpring Christian Church is a multi-site church with sites in North College Hill (Clovernook), Westwood and Harrison. One of the church’s biggest desires is to connect with local schools and organizations to help assist with community impact. This year each site was charged with finding the best way to connect with local schools to assist with the beginning of the school year. This year the Westwood and Harrison sites decided to support a backpack drive for its locations. For the Clovernook location the need was just a tad bit different.

“When I spoke with Sheri Johnson, principal of North College Hill Elementary, it became evident that their real need would be to help in the class room this year,” site minister Tim Dunn said. “That’s when we adopted an in-house campaign called ‘Crates for the Classroom.’ We decided that in order to curb the expense that many teachers are taking out of their pocket each year to cover supplies, we would provide a grade specific crate full of supplies for each teacher. Along with that crate will be a small gift bag with goodies, including a gift card to a local store, and some sweets. Our hope is to help bless the teacher and let them know that we are behind them as they begin their year and to let them know they are not alone.”

verse around us increases at an ever increasing rate today, astronomy is actually the oldest science. There is little recorded information from early man’s thoughts about the universe. They believed that the night sky held great power of their daily lives which lead to the belief in astrology. The early Egyptians may have built the pyramids 5,000 years ago in part as astronomical tools. Stonehenge’s construction start dates back to around the same time and continued for dozens of centuries. Even before then some celestial events, comets, eclipses and exploding stars were recorded in crude drawings often made on cave walls. 1,600 years ago the Babylonians recorded the motions of the planets, sun and moon. Around 500 B.C. the Greeks took that knowledge and applied a scientific method to learn the size of the Earth, to predict future eclipses of the Sun and Moon, and cataloged the stars and constellations. For our next installment of “CASKids,” Elizabeth Daniels from Cincinnati State will help explore how cultures from around the world, including North America used astronomy every day. Have a telescope, big or small? Bring it along for expert help exploring the night sky.

Fundraiser supports type 1 diabetes research

The Fresh Market will hold its 19th annual “Hope Floats” Sidewalk Sale Sept. 6 through Sept. 8, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily to benefit JDRF, the leading global organization funding type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. Each of The Fresh Market’s stores will offer hot dogs, root beer floats and ice cream sundaes (regular and sugar-free), each for a $2 donation. The Fresh Market will donate 100 percent of the money raised over the

three-day sale directly to JDRF to support its research efforts to create a world without T1D. T1D is an auto immune disease in which the pancreas stops producing insulin needed to regulate blood glucose. T1D strikes both children and adults suddenly and is unrelated to diet and lifestyle. It requires constant carbohydrate counting, blood glucose testing and life-long dependence on injected insulin. People living with

T1D must administer insulin injections to prevent too much glucose, contained in carbohydrates, from entering the bloodstream. In addition to the Sidewalk Sale, The Fresh Market is hosting a JDRF Sneaker Sale campaign through Sept. 8. Customers can make a donation by purchasing green paper sneakers at checkout counters. JDRF Collection Containers are also placed at each checkout counter.

Delhi Township resident Emily Schmitz was chosen out of the crowd at U.S. Bank Arena to join the boy band and Nickelodeon stars Big Time Rush onstage. Schmitz is an eighth-grader at St. Teresa of Avila School. One of Delhi's own got to realize the dream of every Big Time Rush fan and that is to be chosen "Worldwide Girl."THANKS TO TOUR GIRLS
