Landrum is Delhi administrator Says he will bring fresh perspective By Monica Boylson

Delhi Township has a new administrator. The board of trustees voted during the Sept. 12 board meeting to enter into a contract with Pete Landrum as the township administrator effective Oct. 1. He will serve in the position the remainder of this year and then begin his two-year contract in 2013. “We are thrilled to have com-

pleted the search process and feel confident that our new administrator will be a great fit for Delhi Township, our employees, and our residents,” board President Mike Davis said. All the trustees agreed that Landrum was the best choice. Davis read a letter from trustee Marijane Klug who was not at the meeting expressing her thanks to acting administrator Tom Stahlheber and confirming her support for Landrum as the new administrator. Board Vice President Jerry Luebbers also extended his appreciation to the acting administrator for his eight months of ser-

vice. “I want to welcome Pete Landrum to Delhi Township,” Luebbers said during the meeting. Landrum was chosen from Landrum more than 30 candidates. The need for an administrator came when the board terminated the contract of former administrator Gary Schroeder in January. Stahlheber served as acting administrator and the board started accepting applications in March to permanently fill the position.

Landrum, who attended the meeting, said he looked forward to working with them and the township. “The position of administrator has been a career goal of mine,” he said. The father of two said his most recent experience as assistant county administrator and director of the Office of Management and Budget for the Butler County Commissioners gave him some insight into an administrative position. “I’ve worked more than 15 years in Montgomery County. I’ve had exposure to many different ways of doing things,” he

said. A Miamisburg resident, Landrum said he will be able to offer the township something unique. “I think I bring a fresh, outside perspective,” he said. “I do my homework and I like a lot of perspectives. I want to be an administrator that can unite the citizens and the services.” In the meantime, the 43-yearold said he will attend various committee and board meetings to learn more about the functions of the township. “I want there to be a local government that citizens can say, ‘In Delhi, we’re the best,’” Landrum said.

September is National Preparedness Month and emergency organizations in Delhi Township are urging residents to be prepared. “This is an opportunity for people to look at their own internal preparedness in the case of the emergency,” Delhi Township Fire Chief Bill Zoz said. The chief explained that the Federal Emergency Management Agency has offered sugMaley gestions of items people should have available in the event of a crisis. Recommended items include: water, food, radio, flashlight, first aid kit, whistle, dust mask, moist towelettes, garbage bags and plastic ties for personal sanitation, wrench or pliers to turn off utilities, can opener and local maps. “In the case of a disaster, the fire department can not get to all the residents right away,” Zoz said. “We have 13 guys and a couple of pieces of equipment trying to help 30,000 people. We’re not going to get to every-

With the grill roaring, guests mingling and engines revving, “Harry’s Hot Rod Cook Out and Car Show” was the place to be on a recent Friday. “It’s like a homecoming for so many of the guys who grew up in Delhi,” Indiana resident Darlene Davidson said.

The 73-year-old said that he decided it would be fun to have friends over with their cars. He joked and said, “Since I have such a big yard, I thought it would be neat to have a bunch of old cars back there.” Hartkemeyer parked two of his cars in the line, a 1947 Mercury convertible and a 1948 Pontiac, while his work in progress, a 1936 Dodge panel truck, was in the garage for people to see.

Volunteers to help paint, polish arts center The Arts Center at Dunham is getting a major spruce up. More than 60 volunteers from Procter & Gamble, GE Aviation and the Sunset Players will descend upon the center Saturday, Sept. 22, for a day of painting and polishing in preparation for the re-opening of the building as a more fully realized arts center. The first productions in the new center will be “Accidental Friends,” part of Playhouse in the Park’s “Off the Hill” children’s theater series, and “King o’ the Moon,” the first show of Sunset’s 2012-2013 season. “We are so excited and honored to be picked by these companies out of the many other projects

that also truly deserve this help,” said John Wesseling, president of the Sunset Players. “It will literally save us months and months of work – in a single day.” Volunteers have spent more than 1,000 hours restoring and repairing the building, researching grants, promoting the center and creating community partnerships. Volunteers include members and organizers from Price Hill Will, Price Hill Civic Club and the Sunset Players, as well as area residents and community members. “Price Hill Will’s involvement is what connected us to P&G and GE Aviation’s outreach program,” Wesseling said. “It’s hard to believe

said Chris Yearout, a member of the Sunset Players. “One of my hopes is that we have enough volunteers to also finish polishing these areas.

Man’s magic earns him national award Others now say ‘you’re one of us’ By Kurt Backscheider

Patrick Thernes recently realized he’s doing what he was meant to do – bringing magic and entertainment into peoples’ lives. The 31-year-old Price Hill resident, whose stage name is Sir Pat-Trick, won second place at a prestigious national magic competition in early August, affirming all the hard work he’s put into polishing the art of magic was worth it. “If I would have gotten first place, I think I would have had a heart attack,” Thernes said. An Elder High School graduate who is now completing his degree in liberal studies at the College of

Mount St. Joseph, Thernes placed second at the 75th annual Abbott’s Magic Get Together show in Colon, Mich., which is known as the “Magic Capital of the World” in the magic industry. He said he’ll always remember the moment because magicians he’s idolized for years treated him as a peer. “A surreal moment came after they announced my name and the crowd was cheering,” he said. “I was walking up to get my award and Mac King, who headlines his own show in Las Vegas, gives me a high-five. Michael Finney, one of the top comic magicians in the business who has made over a dozen TV appearances, shakes my hand, leans in and whispers, ‘you’re one of us now.’

“That’s when I lost it and started to tear up,” Thernes said. His interest in magic was sparked when his parents gave him a magic kit when he was 10 years old, he said.

Miami Twp. dedicates memorial from World Trade Center steel By Kurt Backscheider

It’s been 11 years since terrorists attacked our nation, crashing planes into the World Trade Center in New York City, the Pentagon in Washington, D.C. and the field outside Shanksville, Pa. Like millions of Americans, the people of Miami Township will always remember the tragic events of that clear September morning. And now a lasting tribute to the victims of the 9/11 terrorists attacks stands in the Miami Township Community Center. Township officials, firefighters, sheriff deputies, community members and state leaders joined together Tuesday, Sept. 11, to dedicate the township’s new 9/ 11 memorial statue. The memorial, which stands in the entrance hallway of the community center, features two pieces of steel from the World Trade Center.

“It’s a remembrance of Sept. 11, 2001. It will be there forever,” said Trustee Paul Beck. “We will never forget.” The two pieces of steel used in the memorial are from a 4-ton section of steel Cleves resident Linda Tenhundfeld helped bring to the West Side last summer from the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. The 24-foot piece of steel was cut up and sections were given to the Green Township Department of Fire & EMS, the Miami Township Fire Department and the Fire Museum of Greater Cincinnati. Tenhundfeld said it took about 18 months to iron out all the details to bring the piece of steel here, but all the work was worthwhile. “The memorial looks beautiful,” she said. The tragic loss the nation suffered during the 9/ 11 terrorist attacks and the sacrifices Americans made following the attacks motivated her to bring the steel piece here, she said.

“Everyone remembers exactly where they were on 9/11, and we should never forget that,” Tenhundfeld said. “We came together as a nation and fought back. That was my drive.” Miami Township Fire Chief Steve Ober said the memorial is dedicated to the nearly 3,000 people who were killed during the worst terrorist attack in U.S. history, especially the firefighters and police officers who ran into the World Trade Center. “They responded to the call and made the ultimate sacrifice,” Ober said. “Their sacrifice must never be forgotten.” Beck said dozens of township businesses, community groups and residents donated money to pay for the memorial. “We put the word out and in 10 days time we received $4,000 in donations,” he said. “The donors made this possible.” The memorial is open 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday.

“Something clicked,” he said. Over the years he practiced tricks and developed his presentation skills. He said he trained in slapstick comedy and character development, and pro-

fessional area magician Artie Kidwell mentored him on how to use magic to tell a story. Most recently, Thernes said he’s studied with Joanie Spina, who was David Copperfield’s lead assistant and artistic director. “The tricks are only tools,” Thernes said. “Your presentation is what makes it magic.” He’s performed at the Vatican in Rome, the Aronoff Center for the Arts and other area theater venues, and he said he does free magic performances for children at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center. When he graduates from the Mount he said he plans to focus more on his magic career. He said his act is great for corporate events, cocktail parties, hospitality suites, school

events, library shows, product launches, festivals and fundraising events. In the “feast or famine” entertainment business, Thernes said he has no illusions of becoming a big star, but he would like to have a lasting career. His passion is entertaining audiences, and he said he’d like to be able to do that as long as possible. “I like the fact that if I’m doing my job I can make the audience forget about life for a bit, forget about the car payment that’s due,” he said. “I like to take them back to the time when they believed in magic and all its wonder and enchantment.” For more information about Thernes and his magic show, visit or send an email to

Art, floral design shine at ‘bloomin’ exhibit

Delhi Police to take back drugs

Groups join for shared exhibit

By Monica Boylson

Studio San Giuseppe was the scene of a unique collaboration recently between Western Hills Garden Club and the College of Mount St. Joseph – “Bloomin’ Arts: Juried Art Works Enhanced by Floral Designs.” The two organizations joined forces to present the shared exhibit at the college’s art gallery, featuring amateur floral designs on display alongside the student works of art, which served as their inspiration. Amateur floral designers, representing eight area garden clubs, each selected a specific project to inspire their floral designs, which were judged by a panel of official National Garden Club flower show judges, before the exhibit was open to the public for two days. » Mary Lou Aufmann, Forest Park Gardeners, won first place; » Lynn Bolte, Montfort Heights Garden Club, won second place; and » Carolyn Doerflein, Clovernook Garden Club, won third place. Two of this area’s professional designers – Karen Trotta of Lutz Flowers and Dale Kabbes of Robben Florists – also exhibited designs as part of this community celebration.

Delhi Township Police will collect unused or expired prescription and non-prescription drugs during Drug Take Back Day Saturday, Sept. 29. The police will be at Remke/Biggs on Delhi Road from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. as part of a Drug Enforcement Administration initiative to safely dispose of medications. “This is a way to keep pills off the street,” Delhi Police Lt. Darryl Haussler said. “We’ve taken back, across the country, tens of thousands of pills. We average about 100 pounds or so in Delhi.” After the pills are collected, they will be turned over to the DEA to be incinerated. “It keeps it out of the hands of kids and criminals,” Delhi Police Chief Jim Howarth said. The police will only be collecting pills. “We will not take ilicit drugs, pills only. We will not accept any liquids or needles,” Haussler said. For more information, call the Delhi Police Department at 922-0060.

Aquatic therapy key in resident’s recovery By Monica Boylson

Six months ago John Grove was in a wheelchair. Now the Delhi Township resident can walk with a cane, something he didn’t guess would happen so soon. “I’m luckier than most. I’m upright. I can do most of the things in life. I just can’t stand for a long time or walk for long distances,” he said. Grove considers himself lucky because he didn’t think he would be able to get out of a wheelchair after a back injury and two surgeries left him with nerve damage and paralysis in his right leg and foot. Since March, he has gone to the Howell Rehab Center in Delhi to receive physical therapy. He attributes much of his success

to his time on an underwater treadmill at the rehab center. The treadmill has two cameras that show a front and side view of the person using it. “I can watch my own progress. Sometimes when you’re exercising you don’t know what

you’re doing. Here I can visualize what I’m doing,” Grove said. Physical therapist and owner of the rehab center Alan Howell said he wanted to give his patients more therapeutic options. “We’re giving access to patients that otherwise may not be able to walk or

run,” he said. And Grove said he is one such patient. “I came from a wheelchair to a walker to crutches to a cane,” he said. “Outside of the pool, I can’t stand for long periods of time. In here, I can walk for 25 minutes without a problem.” Howell said the buoyancy of the water reduces stress on the muscles making it easier to exercise and build muscle tone. “We can help people from the de-conditioned to those in very good condition,” he said. For Grove, the underwater treadmill is giving him an opportunity to get better with less stress. “I feel this pool has been critical to my progress,” he said. “This allows me to train with ease.”

New church planting roots on the West Side

Steven Staton said he’s had a recurring dream for the past decade. Several times during the 10 years he’s served as a minister, he said he dreamed of one day planting a church. “In my heart I felt God told me I would plant a church,” Staton said. “About a year and a half ago the dream came back up. God gave me permission to pursue my dream.” This summer Staton brought the dream to fruition when he, with support from the North American Mission Board and other churches, established the Velocity Church in Green Township. The church, which is affiliated with the Baptist faith, meets for service on Sundays at J.F. Dulles Elementary School, 6481 Bridgetown Road. “Our mission is to share the freedom that is found in Christ,” said Staton, who serves as the lead pastor of the church. “Jesus offers a freedom that can’t be found anywhere else.” Originally from North Carolina, Staton said his grandfather and father

were both church pastors. Growing up in the church, he said when he graduatStaton ed from high school the last thing he wanted was to become a pastor. He said he planned to go to college to become a lawyer, make a lot of money and drive a fancy car. “But God began to work on my heart, and called me into ministry,” he said. Staton earned a bachelor’s degree in religious studies from GardnerWebb University in North Carolina, where he also completed his master’s in divinity. He said he worked for a church in North Carolina for four years, and then moved to Cincinnati with his wife, Samantha, an aspiring opera singer, when she was accepted into the graduate program at the University of Cincinnati’s College-Conservatory of Music. Staton has served as the youth minister at Rolling Hills Baptist Church in Fairfield for the past six and a half years. When looking for a

place to plant a new church, he said he, his wife and their partners in the planting endeavor were drawn to the West Side. “The Green Township and Delhi Township area is a nice, beautiful area,” he said. “We felt there is a need here, and hopefully it’s a need we can meet


and encouraging one another.” He said the church offers a contemporary, “come as you are” service that is open to everyone and anyone. The church is hosting a preview service at 10:30 a.m. Sunday, Sept. 23. Staton said Velocity

Church will celebrate its official launch with a service at 10:30 a.m. Sunday, Oct. 7. The church will then offer a weekly Sunday service at 10:30 a.m. from that point on. For more information, visit the church’s website at .

C.O. Harrison starts school Old Glory

C.O. Harrison students hold posters with the Seven Habits of Happy Kids. THANKS TO JOHN

The student body of C.O. Harrison Elementary School kicked off the second week of school with a flag raising ceremony Aug. 27.. The morning started with a roll call of grades led by new C.O. Harrison principal Corey Kessler. From fifth grade to kindergarten, cheers for “Go Colonels” were shouted when each grade level was called. Debby Blome, parent and PTA Secretary said, “It’s a comfort for the students to have this tradition to start the year.” The flag was presented by Cub Scout Pack 300, Den 3. Under the direction of scout leader Terry Schmackers, Joe Ludwig called for the Color Guard. Tyler Johnson, Dylan Smith, Jack Wigginton and Julian Schmackers raised the flag in front of the school at 9:15 a.m. Michael Connolly then lead the students in reciting the Pledge of Allegiance. C.O. Harrison teachers Holly Asman, Jenny Haas and Christine Nordquist sang the National Anthem. Darrien Bockting then directed everyone to begin singing You’re a Grand Old Flag. Kessler welcomed and introduced new staff and teachers to the students and then the Seven Habits of Happy Kids were presented. Pupils shouted out each of the seven habits: Be proactive, begin with the end in mind, put first things first, think win/win, listen before you talk, synergize, sharpen the saw. The ceremony ended early as rain drops began to fall while students recited the pride pledge and then marched back to class singing their school fight song.

We live in an area which is known for very cold winters. Our facility is nearly 7000 square feet in area. When we began to utilize the first unit we were amazed to see how even the heat was for the entire living room area. We ordered a second and a third unit which now warms the entire home. Much to our surprise we are saving over $250 a month and had the lowest expense for heating we have ever experienced here. I would heartily recommend your products to anybody who is interested in really nice, even heat in their home and also interested in saving on their utility expenses. Dennis Crystal, Troy, MT (Retired Airline Pilot)

Enclosed you will find printouts of our electric bill and gas/heating/cooking bills for 2007 - 2008. Our gas company, AmeriGas, stated that more money was saved than would show up because of the cost going up. We would turn the gas on early in the morning and turn it down to 60 degrees; We would use the EdenPURE® heaters from then on and they provided such warmth and cozy heat. Many of our friends have informed me recently that they are going to purchase these heaters for their homes this winter. Gloria D. Smith, Boydton, VA (Retired Elementary Principal)

EdenPURE ranked #1 ®

Save $229 - biggest savings ever

Richard Karn, North Canton, Ohio

I know why millions of Americans are saving on their heating bills with the EdenPURE ® Portable Infrared Heaters. And now you can save up to $229 on new EdenPURE® models, our biggest savings ever, on heaters I personally rank #1 in North America. I was fortunate enough to attend the grand opening of the new EdenPURE® factory in North Canton, Ohio. The new plant brought hundreds of new jobs back to Ohio and reversed the common practice of sending Midwest manufacturing jobs to China. Now, EdenPURE® continues to ramp up production for the coming Winter with exciting new models and hundreds of new employees as this Made in America success story continues to grow. Labor, American American Quality With over 3 million portable heaters sold EdenPURE ® is the best selling portable infrared heating system in North America. However, like any classic, EdenPURE® has dozens of would-be competitors who create Asian copies at low prices using cheap, foreign labor. Don’t be fooled by these imitations. Look for the EdenPURE ® logo and the Made in North Canton, Ohio stamp. Save like millions of others on your heating bills and say “NO” to cheap foreign imitators. Save up to 49% on 2013 EdenPURE®s Now readers can save up to 49% ($229 the largest savings ever on new EdenPURE ®s). EdenPURE ® is not just the best-selling portable heating system in North America. As an EdenPURE ® owner I rank EdenPURE® #1 for quality, safety and efficiency. And now is the perfect time to save like never before on our expanded 2013 EdenPURE ® line made in our brand new North Canton, Ohio facility. With two models EdenPURE® can meet all of your heating requirements 365 days a year. We receive thousands of letters from satisfied customers who share their heating testimonials many of which you can view at our website This Summer we even followed up with EdenPURE® customers from 5 years ago like Gloria Smith (see her original testimony above) who are still just as enthusiastic and in some instances saved thousands of dollars versus costly propane. Gloria Smith Interview May 20, 2012 “My name is Gloria Smith and I am a retired principal from Boydton, Virginia. I’ve been using EdenPURE® Heaters for 5 years. I think I saved at least $15,000 over a

Never be cold again

How it works:


Heats floor to the same temperature as ceiling. 1. Electricity ignites powerful SYLVANIA infrared lamp.

2. The quartz infrared lamp gently warms the patented copper heating chambers.

As Al Borland on Home Improvement I was the man with all the answers. However, as Richard Karn I still look for money saving and efficient heating in my home. I have an EdenPURE ® Infrared Portable Heater in my California home and like millions of others found it to be a supersafe, reliable source of portable heat all year long. period of 5 years. And that’s proven with my bank statements because it’s documented. And I feel really great about using the EdenPURE® Heaters.” “Many people have called me from all over the country when they have seen the infomercials on TV. I’ve enjoyed talking to them and I want everybody to save money in these hard economic times. I believe in paying it forward, so when you experience something good, you want to share it.” Stay Comfortable 365 Days a Year “Never be cold again” is the EdenPURE ® promise. EdenPURE ® provides you insurance against the cold all year long. Stay comfortable on those unseasonably chilly evenings no matter the season. I live in California but believe me it gets cold at night. Keep your expensive furnace turned down until it’s absolutely necessary. And if we are fortunate enough to experience a mild winter as many of us did in the Midwest last year, you keep your furnace off all season and save even bigger. New, More Efficient Models The engineers at EdenPURE® listened to their millions of customers and somehow managed to improve the #1 portable heater in North America. Through old fashioned American ingenuity the new EdenPURE® line is more efficient to save you even more money. EdenPURE ® is proud to introduce the 2013 Model 750. The new Model 750 is perfect for larger areas and heats up to 750 square feet. But the best thing about the Model 750 is the price. We

priced the Model 750 at only $50 above the Personal Heater. This means you receive a 33% increase in performance for only $50. That’s American engineering at its best! We all know heating costs are expected to remain at record levels. The cost of heating our homes and apartments will continue to be a significant burden on the family budget. The EdenPURE® can cut your heating bills and pay for itself in a matter of weeks, and then start putting a great deal of extra money in your pocket after that. Super Safe Infrared Heat Now remember, a major cause of residential fires in the United States is carelessness and faulty portable heaters. The choice of fire and safety professional, Captain Mike Hornby, the EdenPURE ® has no exposed heating elements that can cause a fire. And a redundant home protection system that simply shuts the EdenPURE ® down if it senses danger. That’s why grandparents and parents love the EdenPURE®. The outside of the EdenPURE ® only gets warm to the touch so that it will not burn children or pets. And your pet may be just like my dog who has reserved a favorite spot near the EdenPURE®. You see the EdenPURE ® uses infrared heat. And just as pets enjoy basking in a beam of sunlight they try to stay close to “boneEdenPURE ® ’s warming” infrared heat.

SYLVANIA is a registered trademark of OSRAM SYLVANIA Inc. used under license. Richard Karn is a paid spokesperson for EdenPURE®.

We are a nation of inventors from Benjamin Franklin to Thomas Edison. A Missouri horse breeder named John Jones was no exception. Jones lived in a large drafty old farmhouse with his family of five. They stayed warm on cold Missouri nights with an old coal furnace and plenty of blankets. Now Jones was always collecting scrap to use in his latest inventions and somewhere along the line he had picked up a large sheet of cured copper. Jones stored the large copper sheet in his basement near the coal furnace he labored to fill every chilly morning. Jones noticed something peculiar. The coal furnace warmed the copper sheet and as the furnace cooled down the copper sheet stayed warm. In fact, the copper sheet stayed warm for many hours and heated much of the large basement. As Jones continued to develop a portable infrared heater he knew the copper was the secret ingredient that would make his heater different from all the rest. His copper heating chambers combined with the far infrared bulbs provided an efficient wave of “soft” heat over large areas. The breakthrough EdenPURE® infrared heating chamber was born. The Health Secret is in the Copper EdenPURE®’s engineers have taken Jones’ original concept through revolutionary changes. EdenFLOW™ technology uses copper heating chambers to take the energy provided by our special SYLVANIA infrared bulbs and distribute our famous soft heat evenly throughout the room.

Panthers look to finish in 2012 Elder improves on both sides of ball

Elder’s Max Mazza out runs the defense on his way to a 98-yard kickoff return. His score got the Panthers on the board. The Panthers lost 42-28 to Lakewood St. Edward Sept. 15. TOM SKEEN/THE

By Tom Skeen


PRICE HILL — Despite going

2-8 last season, the Elder Panthers lost four of those games by less than five points. Finishing is one of the big things football coach Doug Ramsey stressed to his team in 2012. “The thing we talked about is to finish games,” he said. “In a lot of the games (last season) we got beat in the fourth quarter. I told the guys if you make plays, you are going to win games.” Off to a 2-2 start, the Panthers have seen production and improvement on both sides of the

ball. Before the loss to Lakewood St. Edward Sept. 15, quarterback Josh Moore led the Greater Catholic League with 738 passing

yards and had seven touchdown passes with zero interceptions. He was completing nearly 70 percent of his passes, but had a rough day against St. Eds and threw

four interceptions in the Panthers’ second loss of the season. “You know he is a guy that just understands what our offense is ... supposed to be like,” Ramsey said. “He gets the ball out of his hands so fast. He really helps the offensive line and our receivers know how to break. He’s an accurate passer.” Moore has some serious weapons joining him on offense, especially at the wide-receiver position. Heading into week four, seniors Max Mazza and Joe Ramstet-

ter combined for 28 catches, 462 yards and seven touchdowns. “I think it’s hard for a defense (to defend them both),” Ramsey said, who is in his 16th season with the Panthers. “We’ve had games where Joe had the big game and the next week, it’s Max. Teams know they can’t double a guy and then to help that is Devin Pike at tight end.” Even with those weapons, Ramsey knows his offense must be multidimensional and have a ground game to go with his air attack. The Panthers have three backs with more than 100 yards rushing this season, all averaging five-plus yards a carry. Leading the charge is junior Chris See ELDER, Page A9

Schroer and senior Jimmy White with 150 yards, with Jeremy Reed spelling the two. “The first two weeks we were real balanced,” Ramsey said. “I don’t know if I want to be a team that throws the ball 40 times a game… I thought our linemen have blocked well. Our first two backs, White and Schroer, are physical backs. When we put Reed in there, he has more speed. I told the guys in practice ‘I hope you are starting to understand you have a chance to be really good and a highscoring offense.’” Ramsey knows you have to take it one step at a time. “We don’t talk about going 10-0,” he said. “It’s possible, but not likely. We want to win our league, make the playoffs and play our best football at the end of the season. If you do all of that or two of them, you have a chance to do some damage. That’s how we approach it.”

Things went wrong early for the Panthers against Lakewood St. Edward and they couldn’t recover on their way to a 42-28 loss Sept. 15. On the second play of the game quarterback Josh Moore threw his first interception of the season and St. Ed’s quickly went up 7-0. Before the Panthers knew it, they were trailing 28-0 with under four minutes to go in the first half. Wide receiver Max Mazza injected some life into the Panthers with a 98-yard kickoff return to make it 28-7. Less than a minute later St. Ed running back Dwayne Anderson busted an 81-yard touchdown run to put Lakewood back up by 28. Elder’s Chris Schroer crossed the goal line before the half to cut it to 35-14. After a Schroer 11-yard score in the third quarter, they had the ball at the Lakewood goal line in the fourth quarter but Moore tossed another interception. He had four on the day. Joe Ramstetter added a four-yard touchdown reception with 23 seconds remaining, but it wasn’t enough as the Panthers dropped their second consecutive game and fell to 2-2 on the season. Thing don’t get any easier for the Panthers as they travel to Bishop Chatard (Indiana) Sept. 21. Chatard beat the Panthers 28-27 at The Pit last season.

Gamble Montessori captured its first win of the season, a 48-0 win over St. Bernard, behind a 309yard rushing performance led by junior running back Javonte Lipscomb’s 12 carries for 135 yards and two touchdowns. Senior running back Chavez Floyd had nine carries for 88 yards and two touchdowns as well as 10 tackles on defense. Next game: The Gators host Hillcrest Sept. 20.

Lakota East 40, Oak Hills 20

Lakota East struck early and often en route to a 20-point victory over the Highlanders. East scored two and a half minutes into the game on a 33-yard touchdown pass by quarterback Eric Eichler and found themselves up 14-0 a minute later when the Highlanders fumbled the snap and Lakota fell on it in the end zone. East led 21-0 at halftime and held the Highlander offense in-check for the second week in-arow, with three three-andouts through the first 24 minutes. Oak Hills finally got on

Ohio bans on texting, driving Ohio recently became the 39th state to ban texting while driving. The new law went into effect Aug. 30. For the first six months after Aug. 30, police officers will issue written warnings instead of tickets for violations of the law. The law treats adults and minors differently. For adults, texting is a secondary offense. Adults could be ticketed for texting only if they were first pulled over for another offense, such as speeding. For adults, reading or writing a text while driving is a minor misdemeanor. The maximum penalty is a $150 fine plus court costs. The law is stricter for mi-

nors. Minors are banned from using cell phones, iPads or other electronic devices while driving. The use of any of these deBrad vices while Greenberg COMMUNITY PRESS driving is a primary ofGUEST COLUMNIST fense for minors. This means that an officer can pull over a minor if he sees the minor texting or talking on a cell phone while driving. For a first offense for minors, the mandatory penalty is a $150 fine and 60-day license suspension. Repeat minor offenders face a mandatory $300

fine and one-year license suspension. There are exemptions under the law. All drivers may text and use cell phones in an emergency.

All drivers may use electronic devices while the car is stationary and outside a lane of travel. Adult drivers cannot be cited for typing in a number or name to

make a phone call. The new statewide ban does not supersede local laws. Many cities, such as Cincinnati, already have local laws that prohibit texting while driving. Cincinnati’s law treats texting while driving as a primary offense for adults and minors. Ohio’s new law affects drivers of all ages. But younger drivers are a specific concern. A survey by AT&T of 1200 drivers ages 15-19 showed that while 97 percent think that texting while driving is dangerous, 43 percent admit to doing it and 61 percent say their friends text and drive.

African-Americans more likely to develop asthma As we near the end of this smog season, I reflected back on my experiences with the OhioKentucky-Indiana Regional Council of Governments’ Clean Air Program’s various festivals and fairs I attended. One of the interesting aspects of my involvement was the many questions I received from AfricanAmericans involving smog; its affects and what can be done to prevent it. This drove me to research if any one race was

more prone to the most prevalent ailment of smog, asthma. According to the U.S. Department of Health and Loren Koehler Human SerCOMMUNITY PRESS vices’ Office of GUEST COLUMNIST Minority Health, African-Americans are 30 percent more likely to have asthma than



A publication of

non-Hispanic whites. The three main reasons why more AfricanAmericans tend to be diagnosed with asthma: limited access to health care, structure of neighborhoods and environmental status. According to a literature review about the Prevalence of Asthma Disparities Amongst African-American Children, limited access to health care was their first conclusion involving this asthma problem

because of the lack of treatment and available health care. The study also contributed this to The National Asthma Education and Prevention Program guidelines. These guidelines can be misinterpreted because the range of symptoms within the guidelines reflects only a narrow view of symptoms. This leads to miscommunication between providers and patients.

Make cream puffs to celebrate Oktoberfest When we were in Germany, we attended an Oktoberfest celebration with daughter-in-law Inge and son Joe. It went on for days and the beer, food and music were non-stop. Oktoberfest is one popular celebration here in Cincinnati, as well. It will be held on Sept. 22 and 23. Check out the Oktoberfest Zinzinnati website for details. Cream puffs are a given on the Oktoberfest menu and Rita the bakHeikenfeld eries make RITA’S KITCHEN gigantic ones. I wanted to share my favorite cream puff recipe in case you wanted to make some for your Oktoberfest party.

Cream puffs

This is the same dough you use for eclairs and also cream puff rings. The dough is called pate a choux. Unfilled cream puffs freeze well after baking. 1 cup water ½ cup butter 1 cup all-purpose flour


The dough used to make these cream puffs can also be used for eclairs. THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD. 4 large eggs

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a saucepan, bring water and butter to a boil. Stir in flour, reduce heat to low. Stir vigorously over low heat, about 1 minute or until mixture forms a ball and you see a film on the bottom. Remove from heat and beat in eggs, one at a time. By the time all eggs have been added, you’ll have a thick, smooth paste. On ungreased or parchmentlined cookie sheet, drop dough by slightly less than ¼ cupfuls three inches apart. Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until puffed and golden. Poke a tiny hole or

slit in side of each to let steam escape. Cool away from draft, about 30 minutes. Makes about 10 puffs.

Rita’s best and easiest mocha mousse filling Great in crepes, too. Or layered with whipped cream and fresh berries. 1½ teaspoons vanilla 1 teaspoon instant coffee (optional) 1½ cups whipping cream ¾-1 cup powdered sugar 1 ⁄3 cup unsweetened cocoa

Put vanilla, coffee and cream in mixer. Blend. Add sugar and cocoa and blend. Whip on high until

Join Rita at Jungle Jims from 6-8:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 11. German potato leek soup, classic sauerbraten, potato pancakes, and apple strudel are on the menu. Call 513-674-6059 for details and registration. More Oktoberfest recipes on Rita’s blog, Cooking with Rita.

stiff. Store in refrigerator.

Fluffy marshmallow filling Good in cream horns, Twinkie-like cakes, etc. Holds together well. Can be made a day or two ahead.

½ cup solid shortening, like Crisco 2 tablespoons butter 1 teaspoon vanilla ½ cup confectioner’s sugar 1 cup marshmallow fluff

Beat shortening, butter, vanilla and sugar together. Then beat in fluff. Store in refrigerator.

Soft vanilla cream filling

This is a softer set filling. 1½ cups cold milk 1 ¾-ounce package French vanilla pudding mix 1 cup whipped topping

In a mixing bowl, beat milk and pudding mix on low speed for 2 minutes. Refrigerate 10 minutes. Fold in topping. Fill cream puffs just before serving. Store in refrigerator.

Easy ganache for topping puffs

Elaine Hennessey shared this recipe in a class we taught at our church, Holy Trinity in Batavia. A winner! 3 tablespoons light corn syrup 12 oz. dark or semisweet chocolate, chopped if necessary ¾ whipping cream ½ teaspoon vanilla

In saucepan, combine corn syrup and cream. Bring to simmer and add chocolate. Stir until smooth. Remove from heat and add vanilla. Let cool a bit before using. Keeps for at least a week in refrigerator or frozen for a couple months.

Ruah Woods growing it’s HQs By Kurt Backscheider

Ruah Woods is expanding its Green Township headquarters. Board members, staff, volunteers and supporters of the organization recently gathered to celebrate a groundbreaking for the construction of a new building on its campus at the corner of Rybolt and Wesselman roads. Ruah Woods, a lay Catholic ministry that promotes the church’s teaching of the Theology of the Body, is building a new twostory Evangelization Cen-

ter next to its existing office building. “We really need more space,” said Leslie Kuhlman, executive director of the organization. “We have grown so much since opening our doors in 2009.” She said the new building will include a 99-seat amphitheater, several meeting rooms, the organization’s administrative offices, a coffee bar and a green, environmentallyfriendly roof.

The mission of Ruah Woods is to restore the family and renew the culture by educating and training people to understand, embrace and evangelize the message of the Theology of the Body, which is a collection of short talks given by Pope John Paul II early in his pontificate. Kuhlman said the organization hosts a variety of classes for married couples, engaged couples, teens, young adults and those who are considering a religious vocation. Ruah Woods also offers psychological services, and Kuhlman said the rapid growth of the organization’s Catholic mental health service headed by clinical psychologist Andrew Sodergren is another reason Ruah Woods decided to expand.

Ruah Woods launched a capital campaign to fund the project earlier this summer, with a goal to raise $750,000. She said so far they’ve received more than $400,000 in pledges and donations. “Again, we are blessed that our community has been so generous in these tough economic times,” Kuhlman said. “Our construction budget is not huge as capital
