Delshire honors its heroes By Heidi Fallon

Delshire Elementary School devoted the afternoon of Sept. 9 saying thank you to firefighters, police officers and the military. “We’re not focusing on 9/11,” said Principal Travis Hunt. “That’s for the parents to talk with their children about, but we wanted to honor our own patriotic heroes that keep us safe every day.” Delhi Township police and firefighters, along with two Delshire parents, were among those honored in an afternoon assembly. Firefighters assigned to the nearby Greenwell Avenue fire station, plus police officers, including School Resource Officer Bill Murphy were treated to a filet mignon luncheon. Delshire third-grader Frankie Duebber got to share his father’s homecoming from Iraq with the school during the assembly. Stacie Kearns, art teacher, helped thirdgraders create a special flag with cards and messages of thanks. “It’s really something special we wanted to do to let Mr. Duebber and all soldiers know we appreciate their keeping us safe,” Kearns said. Like Frankie, second-grader Seth Helms also was late to school due to his father, Matt, also returning from duty in Iraq. “This is really nice of them to do,” Murphy said while watching Hunt grill the steaks. “I don’t think any of us think of ourselves as heroes. We just do what we love doing. “It’s really flattering to be honored.” For more about your community, visit

Marine thanks St. Al students for caring By Heidi Fallon

A St. Aloysius on the Ohio graduate came back Sept. 6 to say thanks to the school’s current students. Cpl. Derek Nixon and several of his Marine buddies were sent care packages from students while serving in Afghanistan last school year. “It was really nice of them to do that and we really enjoyed it,” Nixon said. “Especially the Rice Krispies treats.” Nixon grew up in Sayler Park and after graduating from St. Al’s, went on to graduate from Elder High School in 2008. “I left for boot camp four days after I graduated,” he said. “I knew I wasn’t ready for college and I’d always thought of being a Marine.” His 2011 deployment to Afghanistan was his second. Home for a few days before returning to Camp Lejeune, Nixon

said he’ll finish his stint with the Marines in March. He plans on giving college a try now, and hopes to become a veterinarian. “We wanted to do something for the soldiers and say thanks,” said Quintin Baldwin, St. Al’s student council president. Karen Berndt, the teacher who helped organize the care package project, said all the students were excited about donating. “We filled the stairs with items they brought in and some wrote letters as well,” she said. “It made it so special to be sending them to someone we knew and he was great about sending thank you letters back to us and telling the students what it was like.” While the students greeted Nixon with open arms, one of his

former teachers couldn’t wait to give him a hug. “He was always such a great kid,” said Mary Ann Hensley. “I still have the doll he gave me using all of his accelerated reading points to buy it. He just put it on my desk and I was so surprised and pleased.” Nixon grins at the story and said she was always one of his favorite teachers. Looking just a bit uncomfortable as he stepped in front of the entire school to say thanks, Nixon told the students how much those care packages meant. “We were happy and grateful that people think of us,” he told them. “It helped us get through it.” For more about your community, visit

Acting as his own attorney, he was found not guilty by reason of insanity. Remus will be one of the

Delhi Township Police Officer Joe Ruwe checks through the array of tools and other items police recovered following a Sept. 2 search of a township home by Cincinnati District 3 police. Police are trying to find the owners of the items.

Police recover house full of stolen property By Heidi Fallon

Delhi Township police are looking for the owners of a variety of items recovered after Cincinnati District 3 police searched a home on Clareknoll Court Sept. 2. Delhi Township Police Chief James Howarth said the man living at the home at 311 Clareknoll Court, Charles Harper, 27, remains in jail, charged with burglary by Cincinnati police. Delhi Township Police Officer Joe Ruwe said his department is continuing to

investigate and may file charges of its own. “We have been able to return some of the items to owners by checking all of our theft, burglary and break-in reports back to April,” Ruwe said. “We still have a lot of stuff, mostly tools and lawn equipment, since we have been unable to locate the owners.” Howarth said the department investigated 68 burglaries and break-ins so far this year, 22 in August. “We’re definitely seeing an increase in physical break-ins, while our theft

reports have decreased during the same time period,” Howarth said. He said many of the burglaries are the result of unlocked garages and sheds, and unlocked windows. “We’re hoping that even if people didn’t file a report at the time of a theft, they will contact us if they think any of the items might be theirs,” Ruwe said. “It would be helpful if they have serial or model numbers, or something that helps identify the items as theirs.” Items were returned to

township residents on several streets, including from the same shed on Lilibet Drive that was burglarized twice in May and July. Howarth said Cincinnati police had been looking for Harper in connection with a Price Hill home burglary. He said items may have come from properties not only in Delhi Township, but Green Township and Price Hill as well. Anyone wanting more information can call police at 922-0060.

Greta’s ready to run on the Square Greta’s back and ready to run, in the Running of the Wieners on Fountain Square Friday, Sept. 16. Greta is a wiener dog from Green Township who was the winner of the 2003 and 2008 Wiener Dog Nationals at River Downs, and the 2010 Champion of the Running of the Wieners. Greta has had quite a racing career to date, but she's almost 11 years old. Can she still compete? Her owner, Dr. Laurie DeWine, seems to think so. “She ran well in the Wiener Dog Nationals at River Downs in August of this year, but she did not make it to the finals. According to Greta's fans in the stands, she was leading the first half of her heat race, but she was beaten at the finish-line,” said DeWine. In December 2005, many wondered if Greta would walk again, let alone run. Greta had a collision with an English Bulldog on the playground at doggie daycare and broke her back right leg just above the knee. Greta required surgery, including two pins to repair the broken leg. “The first six weeks of her recovery were rough. She got stronger, though, and used her back right leg more and more. She was doing great until April 2006; she started limping and holding her back right

paw off the ground when she stood still. X-rays revealed that one of the pins in Greta's leg had moved and was jabbing her right knee.” DeWine said, “The pin was surgically removed May 2, 2006, and my happy, playful dog was back.” Greta trains for her races with the help of the neighborhood children. “The kids take turns racing against Greta on the sidewalk. Katie, Allyson, and Rylee Keller and Colby Misch have a lot of fun helping to keep Greta in shape,” said DeWine. When Greta is not running races, she is training to be a Therapy Dog and often accompanies her owner to visits area nursing homes to fit hearing aids and custom ear molds. Greta is a mascot for Dr. DeWine's audiology practice, The Place for Better Hearing. If you want to see Greta and fellow wiener dogs race wearing hot-dog buns, be at Fountain Square by noon on Friday, Sept. 16. The wiener dogs run a 20 yard dash. Heats of 10 pre-registered wiener dogs (dachshunds) of various shapes and sizes will compete for the title of 2011 The winner of each heat competes in the finals. The races are sponsored by the Cincinnati Chamber of Commerce to help promote the opening of Octoberfest Zinzinnati.

Singer and song writer Michael Oberst takes a break from strumming the banjo on his Sayler Park back porch. A member of The Tillers, Oberst has been very busy organizing a benefit concert in November in memory of his mom, Lori.

Sayler Park musician plans tribute to mom By Heidi Fallon

Michael Oberst is planning a tribute to two people who touched his life in very different ways. The 29-year-old Sayler Park song writer and singer with The Tillers has almost single-handedly organized a Nov. 19 benefit in memory of his mom, Lori, and the late folk singer Mike Seeger. To Sing With You Once More will feature a long list of musicians, two of whom were members of Seeger’s New Lost City Ramblers. Money raised from the concert will go the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation and the Mike Seeger Scholarship Fund. Lori Oberst died of the bone and blood cancer in 2003. It wasn’t until recently that Oberst learned Seeger died of the same disease. “I had wanted to do a benefit for the research foundation after mom died,” Oberst said. “I realized it wouldn’t have amounted to much given where I was musically back then.” His mom instilled in Oberst a love of all things music. He said she encouraged him and frequently joined him in belting out songs in their living room. “There was always music in our house and she was like my mother/friend,” he said. “She played the lap dulcimer which is why I put it on the flyer about the benefit concert.” Oberst said his mom apparently grew weary of listening to him pound on the family’s piano that she signed him up for lessons at the College of Mount St. Joseph when he was 4. As an adolescent, Oberst opted to bang on an electric guitar, teaching himself. Then came the drums, banjo and harmonica. His musical repertoire has been as diverse as playing the drum for his Bridgetown Church of Christ youth band to playing in punk rock bands as a teen. He finally discovered his true love and a niche in American folk music. The Tillers, who were featured on a segment of Tom Brokaw’s “Highway 50” documentary series, formed in 2007. They played an impromptu concert for Brokaw and Oberst’s neighbors in his back yard during his stop in Sayler Park.

He still lives in his parents’ 100-year-old house and, except for the addition of a few chickens, the house hasn’t changed much, including the piano in the front room. “My mom never got to see me perform with The Tillers, but she did show up once when the punk rock band I was in was playing,” he said. “That’s not exactly the kind of thing you really want your mom to see, but she stopped on her way home from the opera. I remember looking out and there she was all dressed up.” Seeger, Oberst said, has been a icon for him musically. “He’s Pete Seeger’s younger brother and is a true artist. He would seek out musicians who had given up in the ‘20s and ‘30s and gone back to the coal mine or bagging groceries, or whatever they could do. He gave them back that simple joy of performing just for the sake of the music.” When he started rethinking his memorial concert idea, Oberst tracked down Seeger’s widow. After enlisting her approval, Oberst spent months securing the other acts who will be appearing. “These are people I’ve respected for so long,” he said. “It’s going to be amazing to have all of them on one stage.” Oberst was organizing the concert while The Tillers were on their summer tour schedule, hopscotching across the country, playing at music festivals and where ever else he could book them. “We do it all ourselves, but we’ve met some amazing people and made some great friends every where we go.” The other members of The Tillers are brothers Sean and Aaron Geil, who live in Westwood and Batesville, Ind., respectively. They will officially release their third CD the night of the concert. Like Seeger, Oberst scouted out a retired folk music fiddle player to be part of the CD.

As the Oak Hills High School football team enters Greater Miami Conference play, the Highlanders may have found an emerging star in the backfield. Meet DeMarco Ruffin – sophomore running back. Ruffin leads the GMC with 437 rushing yards through three games, having just torched the Loveland defense for 221 yards on just 13 carries in Oak Hills’ 32-13 win Friday night, Sept. 9. “He’s really matured with the mental aspect of what it takes to be a great football player, a great Friday night football player,” Oak Hills head coach Kurry Commins said. “We’ve obviously got the guys up front (on the offensive line). He’s learning how to read blocks and make cuts and all that type of stuff. “When you add all of his natural ability, he has a chance to be pretty special.” Ruffin’s 55-yard touchdown run midway through the second quarter ignited the Highlander offense after Loveland had taken an early lead. “We didn’t come out with the needed focus, but a lot of credit has to go to our defense,” Commins said. “They held Loveland to two field goals in the first two possessions, which allowed us to get our feet under us and stay in the

Saints riding excitement of fast start By Ben Walpole

PRICE HILL – Seton High School head tennis coach Margo Jokovich can’t schedule an off day. She tries. Her players protest. “I’ve been asked to run practices on weekends, on Labor Day,” Jokovich said. “The majority of the girls are working on tennis on their own, which tells me that they’re excited.” It’s no wonder the team is excited. The Saints are off to a 5-3 start, with wins against league rivals McAuley and Mercy, as well as an impressive victory against a very strong Milford team. Did we mention they beat Mercy? “We’re really proud of that,” senior co-captain Shelby Wauligman said. “They have a really good team this year also, so it was a really good win.” Even the team’s losses have been relatively impressive. There is certainly no shame in losing to city powers St. Ursula (twice) and undefeated Ursuline. What is most remarkable is that none of this was expected. Not by outsiders.

Not by Jokovich. Not even by the team. “I was the only returning varsity member, so I was kind of expecting at least a rough start,” said Wauligman, who moved from doubles last year to second singles this year. The Saints graduated six seniors from last season’s team. Jokovich admitted she thought this would be a “fun” season - i.e. good group, not super competitive. “I definitely anticipated growing pains with losing six out of seven girls from last year,” Jokovich said. “I was very pleasantly surprised to see how our doubles team formed at court one and the strength of our singles.” Freshman Maggie Walroth has been a huge addition. She stepped immediately into the first singles role, helping set up the rest of the lineup on down. “She’s been very strong this year and obviously has a lot of potential,” Jokovich said. “During the summer I knew she was coming to Seton. I knew that she was a tournament player and had been playing a lot. But I

If we can add the point construction and strategy to her game, she’s going to be pretty fierce.”

Wauligman and fellow senior Brooke Moorhead have been excellent at second and third singles, respectively. The first doubles team of juniors Melanie Autenrieb and Nicole Nie has been a revelation. Nie

played JV tennis last season. Autenrieb spent the last two years on the volleyball court. But the combination has worked. “They’ve just come a distance since day one,” Jokovich said. “They’ve really jelled as a team. They’re having fun.” Senior Kaitlyn Cappel – the other team co-captain – and junior Anna Stagge team up at second doubles. Jokovich also is hoping to get Lindsey Berting back in the lineup soon. The senior has been sidelined with a shoulder injury. Wauligman said one of the most important developments this season has been off the court. With so little varsity experience returning, the players didn’t know each other well. Wauligman hosted the girls at her house after the first match for a night of tie-dyeing T-shirts. “It was cool to see everybody making friends together,” Wauligman said. “If the chemistry isn’t there, then the teamwork isn’t going to be there. You can’t really win matches without being able to work together.” For more coverage, visit

Last week’s question:

Should a replacement for the Brent Spence Bridge between Ohio and Kentucky be partially paid for by charging a toll? Why or why not? “The goal of replacing the Brent Spence Bridge is two-fold: one, to provide a modern bridge that can alleviate the congestion caused by funneling down the six lanes northbound and southbound on each side of the bridge that go into four each as they cross the river on two different levels (remember, the bridge’s traffic capacity was predicted when built as a three-lane bridge each way to carry 85,000 vehicles per day, but in 2007, it was actually carrying 155,000 vehicles per day, with a forecast of 200,000 per day by 2013). “The second major issue with the Brent Spence Bridge is its outdated design and inherent safety issues, both from its design and age. “While many might find the idea of making it a toll bridge, those of us who have used toll roads and toll bridges in other parts of the country know how badly a toll can create a traffic bottleneck. If funding is not available, I would rather see a study done over a year, to identify which states and provinces use the bridge, and have those states and Canadian provinces assess a tax on their drivers and trucking companies to provide income to pay for a fair share of the bridge’s

Send your answer to with Chatroom in the subject line. design, construction, project management and subsequent maintenance.” W.S.W. “In a word: No. The traffic backups will go from Sharon Road on the north side to U.S. 42 in Kentucky. It will also push more traffic onto the other bridges in the area, causing traffic backups on Covington, Newport and downtown Cincinnati surface streets. If you want an idea of how bad it will be, try to drive into New York City via the George Washington bridge on any given weekday. Think two hours to drive three miles. With the state of the economy, the government can’t keep passing these costs onto the people. Our taxes are supposed to pay for the upkeep of our nations infrastructure. The government has a hard time seeing the future. When a bridge is built, it’s known that it will eventually need to be replaced. That’s when they should start thinking about how to pay for the new one.” J.K.

Town hall meeting to offer bed bug prevention tips Bed bugs are back. After half a century of absence, these pests have returned to suburbs and major cities with Cincinnati at the top of the list. While our greatgrandparents knew how to prevent and exterminate bed bugs, sadly this common knowledge has been lost over the years. But it is never too late to re-learn. Bed bugs are efficient creatures and are usually transported in or on luggage, clothing and furniture. They are attracted to the heat and chemicals emitted by humans, making hotels, motels, apartments, schools, theaters and especially senior living facilities a breeding ground for bed bugs due to the high volume of people living in and passing through these facilities. The University of Kentucky’s Department of Entomology found that 18 percent of all bed bug infestations occur in nursing homes. Your house is not immune. I have toured homes that have been invaded by bed bugs and met with families whose lives have been completely disrupted by these pests. If you haven’t been affected, trust me, you don’t want any part of these tiny blood suckers. In the past decade alone, major Ohio cities like Cincinnati, Dayton, and Columbus have experienced increasing outbreaks, but taking precautionary and preventative

methods can drastically reduce overall risk of infestation. On Thursday, Sept. 29, at 6 p.m., I will be hosting a town Denise hall meeting and Driehaus discussion at the Price Hill RecreCommunity ation Center Press guest ( 9 5 9 columist H a w t h o r n e Ave., in the community room) to address the trouble Cincinnati is having with bed bugs. There will be a panel of experts from various health departments, pest control agencies, and the Council on Aging of Southwestern Ohio on hand to answer specific questions and offer suggestions on how to prevent bed bugs from infesting your home. We will also discuss pending legislation dealing with bed bugs. I invite you to attend, ask questions, and learn how you can prevent bed bugs from becoming a problem in your life.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Who is managing the city?

Obviously not Milton Dohoney. Since when has Cincinnati been in such a mess? Policemen are being shot at, firehouses are being shot at, Over the Rhine was listed the worst crime area in the nation, city employees being paid not to be on the job, department supervisors doing what ever they went (in city hall), cut backs on the working city employees who keep the city clean, having a city solicitor’s office (then hiring outside attorneys), not able to manage a budget ( for years), put a streetcar in a high crime area and then talk about laying off police officers, any smart business person would have put the casino closer to the riverfront, and the bed bug capital of the nation. Yes, we think it is time Milton Dohoney steps down. While we are at it, is it time Mark Mallory and Roxanne Qualls also step down; they were supposed to be watching over the city and it looks like they failed to do their job. Maybe we need leaders, not politicians Bill McCauslin Delhi Township

We thank you for your 23 years of running Grand China in an outstanding manner: serving delicious food in a pleasant and comfortable atmosphere, providing excellent and attentive service to each customer, and offering each customer gracious and exceptional hospitality. My husband, Rob, and I have enjoyed dining at Grand China

since our three sons were adolescents. Now, our youngest son is 36. We will always cherish our memories of you, your warmth and hospitality, and our fine dining experiences at Grand China. We were always proud to bring our friends to Grand China because we knew they would be delighted with their dining experience. Grand China has been an honor, a blessing, and a shining star in our community for 23 years because of your hard work and dedication. On Sunday Aug. 28, we had the delightful experience of attending your retirement party at Grand China. Again, the food and hospitality were fantabulous. We will miss you greatly, but we wish you great peace, joy, happiness, and satisfaction in your retirement years. Joyce Rogers Covedale

It was pointed out that unemployment has increased since President Obama took office (21⁄2 years ago). People forget the actual numbers. January 2008 (when President Obama took office) the unemployment rate was 5 percent, October 2009 it hit 10.1 percent and it is currently holding at around 9 percent.

Gano first settler baby born in Ohio One of the earliest settlers in our area was Daniel Gano. He was the first white child born in Ohio. His ancestor Etienne Gayneau came from LaRochelle, France. They were Huguenots, (Protestants) who were deprived religious freedom in France in the 17th century and part of the mass exodus of Huguenots from France. Etienne and his wife Linda and their three children set sail on the ship Beaver for America on May 9, 1661. They arrived in New Amsterdam (New York) on July 29. Etienne’s great-grandson Rev. John Gano was a chaplain in the Revolutionary War. He married Sarah Stites daughter of John Stites mayor of Elizabethtown, N.J., and niece of Major Benjamin Stites. Their son John Stites Gano came to Columbia with Major Benjamin Stites in 1788. John Stites Gano married Mary Goforth daughter of Judge William Goforth. John Stites Gano rose to the rank of major general in the First Division of the Ohio Militia. He served under Gen. Anthony Wayne in the War of 1812. John was a surveyor under Gen. Arthur

St. Clair when 613 men were killed on the Wabash River in 1791. He fought many Indians battles on the frontier under Gen. William Henry Harrison. When the court system was established in Ohio he was appointed the

first clerk. His son Daniel was born May 23, 1794, at Columbia. When Daniel was an infant the family moved to Cincinnati. In 1807 he rode on horseback to Providence, R.I., to attend Brown University, but fell off his horse and never attended. Instead he returned to Cincinnati to recover. His father was the clerk of courts and he became a deputy clerk. When his father retired in 1818 Daniel took over as clerk of courts and held that position for 40 years. That same year he was married to Rebecca Hunt Lawrence. They had six children, but only Stephen and Henrietta lived to adulthood. Daniel invested in land and built 27 houses and three

farms. One of his farms was Home Farm which became Home City. There he bred and raced Arabian horses. The horses raced around an old oval prehistoric Indian mound, while the spectators used the top of the mound as a grandstand. When old family friend Marquis de Lafayette came to Cincinnati in 1824 Daniel Gano entertained him at his Cincinnati home. Gano Alley in Cincinnati was originally a canal and converted to an alleyway. Gano Street is now near the Aronoff Center for he Arts downtown. Local legend said that it was donated to the city by Daniel Gano. Daniel Gano died at Home Farm in Green Township, now Delhi Township, in 1873. A servant went to awaken him for breakfast and found him unresponsive, most likely from a stroke. A doctor was called, and as was the custom, probably bleed him until he died. He was unconscious for 24 hours before he died. Betty Kamuf is a winner of Griffin Yeatman Award for Historical Preservation. She lives in Sayler Park. You can email her at westnews@

Delhi-Price Hill Press

Potato salad warms up chilly early fall days When I went for my morning run today, I had to put on a long sleeved shirt and sweatpants. My whole family is loving this weather, but I’m resisting the fact that autumn is almost here. I know fall is coming by the emails from you, my Community Press family. The requests for chili recipes and soups are pouring in, along with Oktoberfest requests. Oktoberfest promises to be one of the best ever this year on Fountain Square Sept. 16-18. See details at

Baked German potato salad for Oktoberfest

I will always remember Clara’s German potato salad. She was my husband, Frank’s, mother and she made a great German potato salad, as did Frank’s Aunt Marg. Of course, there was no “recipe.” I can make a decent German potato salad, too, but couldn’t tell you exactly how much of any one ingredient is in it. It’s a “to taste” sort of thing. So I was happy to get this twist on a classic recipe from a friend several years ago. It’s good warm, room temperature or chilled. Add more vinegar for a more tart flavor, or more sugar if you like it sweeter. 1

⁄2 to 1 pound diced sautéed bacon (We love bacon so I use almost a pound) 1 cup chopped celery, or more to taste 1 generous cup chopped onion, or more to taste 3 tablespoons flour Salt and pepper to taste 2 ⁄3 cup sugar 2 ⁄3 cup cider vinegar 1 to 11⁄2 cups water Handful of fresh chopped parsley (optional) 1-2 teaspoons celery seed About 8 cups potatoes, boiled just until crisp tender, and cut into 1⁄4” slices or so

Preheat oven to 375. After you sauté the bacon, l e a v e some fat in the skilRita let and add Heikenfeld celery and and Rita’s kitchen onion cook for a few minutes. Add flour, salt and pepper and cook a couple minutes longer. Then add the sugar, vinegar, and water all together, stirring with a whisk. If it’s a bit lumpy, don’t worry - it will get smooth. Bring to a boil and cook 1 minute. Add parsley, celery seed and about half the bacon. Combine and remove from heat. Place potatoes in sprayed large casserole. Pour dressing over all and mix very gently so potatoes don’t break up. Bake about 35 minutes or until bubbly. Sprinkle with rest of bacon. Serves eight to 12.

Rita’s 2-way Reubens

The Heritage Restaurant, where Frank was the general manager, served an awesome grilled Reuben sandwich. I could eat my weight in those sandwiches. What I like about the recipe I’m sharing now is that it does double duty. It’s delicious as a spread with rye crackers or as a filling for a Reuben. Another bonus is that the mixture freezes well for a month or so. You can divide the recipe in half if you like. 1 pound real deli corned beef, chopped or shredded 1 generous cup mayonnaise 2 cups each shredded cheddar and Swiss or Gruyere 1 pound sauerkraut, rinsed and drained very well Dash or two of caraway seeds (opt.)

Mix the corned beef and mayonnaise together. Add the cheeses and mix well. Add sauerkraut, caraway seeds and parsley and mix again. Spray a casserole dish and bake in preheated 350 degree oven, uncovered, for 40-50 minutes or until bubbly. Or microwave on medium until hot throughout. My favorite is as a filling for grilled Reubens. We like the Reubens on dark rye.

‘Umpires’ help settle disputed insurance claims What can you do if you file an insurance claim, the adjuster looks at the property, then said only part of it has been damaged? That’s a problem many people encounter, but they don’t know how to handle the dispute with their insurance company. Ron Moellman of

Alexandria faced such a situation when he and many neighbors sustained major damage from a hailstorm over the summer. “I went in to check on the wife and the next thing I know it started hailing and raining real bad. The wind came through here and we had pretty good size hail,”

Howard Ain Hey Howard!

he said. The hail not only damaged his house, it broke the w i n d shield on one of his vehicles

and left large dents in two others. Moellman immediately filed a claim with his insurance company. “They had no problem paying the hail damage on my vehicles….They paid whatever the adjuster said to pay. But when it came to my roof, he only wanted to pay half the damage …” he said. Moellman said the adjuster failed to find hail

damage on the larger part of his roof. “The adjuster said there’s only wind damage, he didn’t see any hail damage up there,” he said. “But I had two roofers up there and they said there’s hail damage and wind damage to my entire roof…They said because of the back draft it just kind of lifted the shingles up and pulled the whole roof up. It broke all my glue tabs that hold all the shingles down.” I had Moellman check his insurance policy and find the section on how to handle a disagreement with the adjuster. It permits you to bring in an “umpire” who can decide who is correct. Moellman said there’s no doubt who is right in this case. “One roofer said he’d even have trouble matching the shingles,” he said. Under the umpire clause

both you and the insurance company each pick experts. Those experts then decide on a third expert who will look at the roof and decide if there is damage that should be covered by the insurance company. Most homeowner’s insurance policies contain the umpire clause. Moellman filed under the umpire clause and tells me his insurance company sent out a second adjuster who inspected his roof and agreed it has been damaged by hail and wind. In addition, the adjuster found hail damage on his gutters and told Moellman he’s recommending insurance pay to replace it all. Howard Ain answers consumer complaints weekdays on WKRC-TV Local 12.

Wiffle Ball helping Pink Ribbon Girls It’s plastic; it’s perforated and it’s known for backyard fun. It’s Wiffle Ball. And if Cincinnati breast cancer organization, Pink Ribbon Girls have it their way, the Wiffle Ball will also be known as a way to raise money for the awareness of breast cancer. This year’s Pink Ribbon Girls seventh annual Family Wiffle Ball event is in honor of all breast cancer survivors because the organization is turning 10 years old this fall. It will be 4-11 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 17, at Kuliga Park, 6717 Bridgetown Road. All proceeds benefit Pink Ribbon Girls (PRG), a local organization that provides a support network for young women with breast cancer. The idea for the fundraiser sprang from a childhood friendship between Mike Fieler and Tracie Metzger, PRG’s co-founder and executive director. The two attended Our Lady of Visitation School in Bridgetown and today their children attend the school and many of the same activities together. In the past, the Fielers have hosted all-male Wiffle Ball tournaments on their five acres of property, but over the past five years, have decided to open it up to families and friends for a good cause. More than 2000 people attended last year’s event raising more than $35,000. Like in year’s past, each of the four Wiffle Ball fields will feature home run walls mimicking baseball’s classic ballparks such as Fenway,

Wrigley and Great American. Some of the Ben-Gal cheerleaders will be in attendance from 6-8 p.m. for a meet and greet and photo opportunities. Sports Clips will have a station that will feature hair spray painting for a $5 donation. The Pink Ribbon Kids Area will offer children’s face painting, temporary tattoos, a bounce house and much more. Families can also buy tickets for the home run derby contest, gift basket raffle and silent auction. The cost of the event is $50 per family, which includes admission to the event, entry to play in the six-vs.-six Wiffle Ball tournament, live musical entertainment provided by the Sullivan Janszen Band, giant screen TV which will be playing the Saturday college football games, a family giveaway item. Food tickets are $2 and will feature Trotta’s Pizza, JTM Hamburgers and John Morrell hot dogs and snow cones. To ensure a spot for the Wiffle Ball tournament, deadline for registration is Sept. 14. Families can pay at the door the day of the event and still enjoy all other activities aside from the tournament. Presenting sponsors the day include Disney McClane, Wellington Orthopedics, McAuley High School, Full Range Rehab, and The Plastic Surgery Group.
