Happy meals returning

Delhi Township and Hamilton County officials say the Delhi Road improvement project is just about a week behind schedule. Delays installing underground utilities has delayed the new McDonald’s construction, but the restaurant is expected to reopen Tuesday, Oct. 5, according to township Administrator Gary Schroeder. Eric Beck, county construction engineer, said work on the half-mile span of Delhi Road should be completed by the end of the year. Work includes a new Delhi Township Park entrance and traffic light adjacent to McDonald’s, and changes to access points into businesses.

Dungeons slither back Oct. 1

By Heidi Fallon

Ghouls, monsters and things that go bump on weekend nights will be slithering back to the Dungeons of Delhi starting Friday, Oct. 1. The haunted maze of rooms is housed in the old Thriftway building in the DelFair Shopping Center, along Anderson Ferry Road. Sponsored by the Delhi Police Department’s Explorer Troop, Dungeons is the group’s main fundraiser. “We are ranked in the top five of haunted houses in the area and we always get top reviews from people who rate haunted houses,” said Sgt. Joe Middendorf, Explorer adviser. “We’re also one of the most affordable haunted houses around.” Jacob Rouse, 23, is a former Explorer who’s been volunteering for the past 12 years. “I help out because it’s for a really good cause and it’s a lot of fun,” Rouse said, while sorting

“I help out because it’s for a really good cause and it’s a lot of fun. It also gives young men and women someplace to go and have some fun.” Jacob Rouse A former Explorer who’s been volunteering for the past 12 years.


Jacob Rouse plays with a few of the gory props that will be on display to entertain and terrify visitors to the Dungeons of Delhi starting Oct. 1. through a shopping cart of gruesome looking body parts. “It also gives young men and women someplace to go and have some fun.” Dungeons of Delhi will feature a few rearranged fright sites, including the Monster Garage, which Middendorf said is one of

the most popular venues and was created by Rouse’s father, Cecil. “Our Dracula is the most awesome vampire, too,” Middendorf said. “Jerry Wessler has won awards for his portrayal.” Dungeons is open 7 p.m. to midnight Friday and Saturday

and 7 p.m.-9 p.m. on Sunday. There also is a less scary children’s matinee every Sunday from 5-7 p.m. Admission is $8 with a $1 discount for a canned food donation, which will go to the Anderson Ferry Food Pantry. The matinee is $4 per person.

Students to pedal for poverty project By Heidi Fallon

“I want to help raise money for people who don’t have enough food to eat.”

Rapid Run Middle School students are preparing to pedal their hearts out to raise money for children in Tanzania. Sponsored by the National Junior Honor Society, the bike-athon will start at 9:30 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 25, at the school, 6345 Rapid Run Road. “We’ll go until about 12:30 or until all the laps have been completed,” said Veronica Diaz, one of two society advisers and seventh-grade math teacher. “We’re hoping to surpass the $3,000 we raised last year.” Students, parents and Delhi Township residents can sign up to pedal around the school parking lot. Not only will folks get a bit of exercise and help students raise money, but there are prizes being awarded for the best biking costume and most laps and money raised, Diaz said. The honor society is again giving all the bike-a-thon profits

grader and society member. Van Schoik and several other society members said that along with money, they are hoping to raise awareness of the poverty and medical needs in Tanzania. “My parents went there and brought back lots of pictures,” said Rachel Royer, a seventhgrade society member. “I want to do my part to help, because I saw the need myself in those photos.” Anyone wanting to donate money or be part of the bike-athon can contact Diaz at 4670300.

munity yard sale, sponsored by the Covedale Garden District Group, is open for business from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 25. Streets involved in the sale include Relleum, Ralph, Western Hills, Heuwerth, Sumter, Leders, Mimosa, Beechmeadow, Colonial, Brunnerwood, Pasadena, Gables, Parkview, Willowood, Loretta, Covedale (between Cleves Warsaw and Sidney), Sidney (between Glenway and Western Hills) and Cleves Warsaw (between Glenway and Colonial). “Hopefully we don’t have any fender benders this year,” said Richard Stoll, a garden district resident and member of the neighborhood group. He said the past five yard sales have been extremely popular among garage sale shoppers, and traffic in the neighborhood is usually congested the day of the sale. There have been a few instances when motorists have bumped into each other when navigating from street to street, he said. The event is also a hit with residents, he said. Stoll said the neighborhood group hosted its first yard sale in 2004 and it took place every fall until

2008, which was the year organizers decided not to put on the event because they weren’t sure whether people had enough items still accumulated in their garages, attics and basements to warrant a yard sale for a fifth straight year. The organizers were wrong. Stoll said they were bombarded with e-mails from people who were disappointed there was no yard sale. “We had so many people call and e-mail asking what happened to the yard sale,” he said. “We decided it had to be an annual thing. No more years off.” He said the neighborhood group appreciates the feedback it receives from area residents about the events it organizes, such as the monthly litter cleanup and the summer yard and garden contest, and clearly the yard sale is an event residents enjoy. “It really helps bring the community together and gets people out and about talking with their neighbors,” Stoll said. He said 800 flyers were distributed to garden district residents reminding them about this year’s sale and encouraging them to clean

Federal educational aid coming to local schools Community Press Staff Report School officials throughout Ohio learned recently how much and how soon they’ll likely receive a total of $361 million in new federal education jobs money. In total, the Congress approved $10 billion in extra funding to support educators’ jobs nationwide, with proponents claiming it will stave off firings and layoffs for hundreds of thousands of teachers and other school professionals. A July report from the Center on Education Policy, an independent education research group, found that 75 percent of school districts that received federal stimulus funds expected to

But school officials here have said the money may come too late to significant-

ly change staffing levels for the current school year. Most of the money will likely help them avoid or reduce layoffs for the next school year. Some say they’re not appropriating funds they don’t yet have in hand. A few districts said they’ll use the funds to hire educators who will offset large class sizes or provide specialized instruction for students. Oak Hills Local School District Superintendent Todd Yohey said it’s estimated the district will receive about $1.2 million in federal education jobs money. He said district officials have yet to have a discussion at this point as to how Oak Hills will use the fund-

ing, but he said it’s likely the money will go toward keeping some people employed who may have otherwise been let go. “That’s the intent of this funding,” Yohey said. He said the district is also awaiting word from the federal government regarding what the regulations and criteria are for spending the money. “It’s a little early in the game for us to know how we’ll be using that money,” he said. “We have a lot of questions for the federal government about what it can be used for and what it can’t be used for.” Cincinnati schools, which is facing a $20 million to $30 million deficit

which could change by November, after enrollment counts in October. The money must be used by schools and districts by Sept. 30, 2012.

next year, may get $4.6 million. District officials said they may hire teachers this year, but most will be saved for next year. Deborah Delisle, Ohio’s superintendent of public instruction, has said the amounts are estimates

A win for the wiener dog

‘til Dusk 10 am

Laurie DeWine, of Green Township, is in the starting blocks with Greta for the Running of the Wieners, a race on Fountain Square helping to kick off the 34th annual Oktoberfest-Zinzinnati. Greta won the race.

Missy Meinhardt said the holes left in their hearts from losing their daughter will never fully heal. But she and her husband, Mark, take comfort in knowing their daughter’s story is helping to change the outcome of children diagnosed with brain tumors. The Meinhardts are once again honoring the memory of their daughter, Sophia Grace Meinhardt, with a 5K run and walk that raises money for cancer research at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center. The Green Township family’s fourth annual Sophie’s Angel Run will take place at 1 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 26, at St. Jude Church, in conjunction with the parish’s Oktoberfest. Mrs. Meinhardt said her family received heartbreaking news four years ago. Their 18-month-old daughter had a brain tumor. She said Sophie’s only symptom was vomiting. Three days later the family’s lives would be changed forever when Sophie did not survive the surgery to remove the brain tumor. “Losing a child is indescribable,” she said. “Consumed with overwhelming grief, we chose to become better from Sophie’s death rather than bitter. “We decided to turn our grief into something positive that would keep our daughter’s memory alive and also help other children who are diagnosed with this devastating disease,” she said. Mark and Missy later learned their daughter’s brain tumor was an atypical teratoid/rhabdoid tumor, a very rare and aggressive brain tumor that grows rapidly within a month or two.

“It makes us feel so good that the community allows us to honor our daughter’s memory and life,” she said.


HWY 229

Mrs. Meinhardt said there are no known causes for this type of tumor, and only 10 percent of children who have the advanced form of the tumor live more than five years after diagnosis. She said there are 3,750 new brain tumor diagnoses each year, which is about 10 children per day, and the 130 different types of brain tumors makes diagnosis and treatment very difficult. She said 76 percent of children diagnosed with brain tumors are under age 15, and brain tumors are the second leading cause of cancer related deaths in children under age 20. “There is a lack of awareness of pediatric brain tumors and a lack of funding for pediatric brain tumor research,” she said. “Funding for brain tumor research is vital to give children like Sophie a fighting chance to survive such a devastating diagnosis and improve survivors’ quality of life.” Sophie’s Angel Run was founded to support more pediatric cancer research and help change those statistics, she said. In the past three years the event has raised more than $135,000 for brain tumor research at Children’s. The run has also allowed the Meinhardts to award $6,000 in scholarships to students at St. Jude School, where Sophie would have attended. Each year the run has grown, with more than 1,500 participants the first year, more than 1,700 participants the second year and more than 2,000 runners and walkers last year. Mrs. Meinhardt said she and her family are very excited about this year’s run, and they hope it will be yet another success.

Merit semifinalists named Gannett News Service


This past summer 19 students from Oak Hills High School spent three weeks in Germany as part of a student exchange program Oak Hills has with a high school in Dingolfing, Germany. The program marks its 25th anniversary this school year. The Oak Hills students who went last summer are Rahel Admasu, Brittany Cella, Adam Coey, Karlee Deidesheimer, Katherine Doherty, Daniel Felix, Jacob Fisher, Sophia Herrmann, Rebecca Hoff, Trevor Jordan, Gabriella Kain, Samuel Metz, Robert Miller, Courtney Rehkamp, Collin Spitzmueller, Christian Vandewalle, Tyler Wagner, Nicole Wimmer and Jessica Wolf.

Exchange program marks 25th year

By Kurt Backscheider

Oak Hills High School alumnus Mike Stergiopoulos said the trip he took to former East Germany when he was in high school was a once-in-a-lifetime experience. “Seeing how different people lived in communist Germany made me appreciate life in the west,” he said. Stergiopoulos, who traveled to Germany in 1988, took part in the student exchange program at Oak Hills while he was in high school. He lived in a small town in Bavaria for three weeks and visited East Germany on a side trip during his stay. He said his travels to Germany inspired him to continue studying German at the University of Cincinnati and the Ohio State University. “I still love to travel and I have a job where I am blessed to have the opportunity to do so,” he said. Oak Hills has been providing students an opportunity to travel abroad and immerse themselves in a different culture since 1985. The student exchange program Oak Hills shares with Gymnasium Dingolfing, its partner school in Dingolfing, Germany, marks its 25th anniversary this school year. “I really like taking the students because it gives many of them a once-in-a-lifetime experience,” said Rogar Schneider, a German teacher at Oak Hills who

coordinates the program with Eva Schott, a German teacher at Bridgetown Middle School. “I hope they enjoy it. I certainly do.” For 25 years, Oak Hills students who take German as their foreign language have played host to students from Dingolfing, a small Bavarian town. The German students come here for three weeks in the fall and the American students travel there in the summer. Schneider said the program was started by former Oak Hills German teacher Charles Kowzan and former Gymnasium Dingolfing English teacher Erich Wasserbauer, who were paired through the German American Partnership Program, a nonprofit high school exchange program sponsored by the German Foreign Office and the U.S. State Department. Schneider said more than 1,000 Oak Hills and Gymnasium Dingolfing students total have taken part in the exchange program since 1985. “Not only do students go to school, but they also visit historical sites and other places of interest in both countries,” he said. “Our students gain an appreciation for another culture. America is so big that many of them never leave the U.S. “Many of the students who go have German ancestry, so they gain an appreciation for that as well,” he said.


Hans-Jürgen Weber, an English teacher at the Gymnasium Dingolfing who coordinates the German side of the program with fellow English teacher Susanne Beer, said the program goes far beyond what students learn in school. “Our students get to go to school right here in America and see things with their own eyes,” Weber said. “They stay with host families and experience a new lifestyle, and last but not least, they can make new friends.” Stergiopoulos said he still keeps in touch with one of the students he met in Germany. “Hanging out with the students from Germany was a lot of fun, especially when you’re sitting around with all of the students and realize you’re speaking German without thinking about it,” he said. Weber and Schneider both said the trip is also great for the teachers who accompany the students and chaperone, as they get to see how subjects are taught in another country and learn new approaches to teaching. Schneider said the program wouldn’t be possible without the tremendous support it receives from the host families and the schools and teachers in both countries. Weber added, “It’s one of the longest running exchange programs in Germany. It’s something special.”

One hundred-seventy-nine Southwest Ohio seniors have been named semifinalists in the 2011 National Merit Scholarship Program. They are among 16,000 semifinalists from across the country and represent less than 1 percent of high school seniors nationally. The students were among 1.5 million who entered the 2011 competition by taking the 2009 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test as juniors. To become a finalist, students must have an outstanding high school academic record, be recommended by their high school principal and earn high SAT scores. Typically, about 90 percent of the semifinalists go on to become finalists.

They must submit a detailed application, essay and information about participation and leadership in school and community activities. Corporate, college and National Merit scholarships will be awarded to finalists between April and July 2011. The semifinalists from this area are: • Colerain: Brendan McDonough, Vanessa Neumeier • Home school: John Grinalds, Scott Phillips, Colerain Township • Mother of Mercy: Elizabeth Ruwe • Oak Hills: Alexander Kroeger • St. Xavier: Patrick Ahern, Louis Bodkin, Matthew Cooney, Soubhik Das, Andrew Goldschmidt, Logan Herbers, Michael Huhn, Avinash Joseph, Douglas Kirkpatrick, Andrew McLaughlin, John Riestenberg, Steven Schmidt, Eric Swank.

Aubrey Rose Foundation presents scholarships The Aubrey Rose Hollenkamp Foundation presented scholarships this summer to students who have continued their education in Catholic high schools. Unlike scholarships that reward students for academics or sports, the Aubrey Rose Hollenkamp Foundation recognizes students for their kindness. Each recipient wrote an essay explaining a positive impact they made in someone’s life. The essays were judged by Nancy and Jerry Hollenkamp, school staff members, Aubrey’s grandparents and siblings, and members of the Aubrey Rose Foundation Junior Scholarship Board. At their eighth-grade graduations, each student was awarded a $500 scholarship toward their freshman year of high school. The foundation hosted a reception to honor the scholarship recipients and their families, and share the purposes and goals of the foundation. This year’s recipients are:

Mallory Arnold, Cardinal Pacelli, St. Ursula Academy; Eric Auberger, St. Ignatius, La Salle High School; Adam Boardman, St. Ignatius, La Salle; Taylor Burkart, Holy Trinity Jr. High, Newport Central Catholic High School; Kendall Cappel, Our Lady of Victory, Seton High School; Tricia Cavanaugh, St. Teresa of Avila, Mother of Mercy High School; Anna Chipman, St. James of the Valley, Mount Notre Dame High School; Hayley Coldiron, Immaculate Heart of Mary, McNicholas High School; Mackenzie Corbin, Immaculate Heart of Mary, St. Ursula; Whitney Cox, Villa Madonna Academy, Villa Madonna Academy; Grace Cunningham, St. Catharine of Siena, Mother of Mercy; Marcy Driehaus, St. Williams, Seton;

Getting a head up

Oak Hills junior forward Drew Mayborg goes head-to-head with Addison Hocter, senior defender for Fairfield, in their Sept. 14 match at Oak Hills. Oak Hills lost 1-0 in the league matchup.


Neil Braam, freshman from Fairfield, left, and Oak Hills senior Nick Smith, forward, fight for the ball in the Sept. 14 league matchup.

Since downing Mount Notre Dame 3-2 in the 2007 state final, the Mother of Mercy High School volleyball team has struggled against its league rival. The Bobcats beat MND in their next encounter – a 3-2 win in September 2008 – but have since lost five straight to the Cougars, including a 3-0 loss Sept. 14. “Over the years, we’ve battled with them consistently,” Mercy head coach Denise Harvey said. “I’m not willing to concede any philosophical or schematic differences (between us). We’ve always been competitive with them.” Four of the last seven matches between the two programs have gone to five sets. One possible reason for the recent defeats, Harvey reasoned, was facing MND so early in the conference schedule. “We have a lot of unforced errors, and we’re just not as sharp as we need to be,” she said. The Bobcats were certainly sharp to open the regular season, winning three straight against Newport Catholic, Roger Bacon and Centerville. Mercy, however, has since lost four straight to Alter, MND, St. Ursula and McAuley. “Those are some very good teams,” Harvey said. The Bobcats are 3-4 (03) entering play Sept. 18. “I’m pleased with our progress so far,” Harvey said. “The girls do a good job of coming to practice every day ready to work.” Leading Mercy is junior Lindsey Dinkelacker (MB), who last year was the only sophomore to earn firstteam all-league honors in the Girls’ Greater Cincinnati League Scarlet division.


Mother of Mercy High School junior libero Morgan Redrow bumps the ball against Mount Notre Dame Sept. 9. “She’s doing a great job,” Harvey said. “She’s a good leader and very knowledgeable.” Dinkelacker is battling a right-shoulder injury, but Harvey is closely monitoring her. “She played a lot of defense in the spring and didn’t spike a whole lot,” Harvey said. “We’re keeping an eye on her.” Mercy also has six seniors who have provided valuable leadership. Among them are Megan Wanstrath, who last year was honorable-mention all-league, Leah Smith, Megan Jones, Allie Hart, Melissa Farmer and Madeline Armstrong. “It’s been exciting; we have six seniors with a lot of experience,” Harvey said. “ Whether that translates to playing time is another issue, but having a nice core group for the younger girls to learn from helps.” Two of the top non-seniors are juniors Marissa Prinzbach (S) and Morgan Redrow (L). Other contributors include juniors Anna Maffey and Jessica Hinkel, sophomores Katie Cosker and Abigail Dinkelacker and

freshmen Kaitlyn Klusman and Emily Wagner. “I think we have a nice core,” Harvey said. “We (play an average of) 10 kids a night.” The 2010 Bobcats are similar to previous Mercy squads – undersized yet quick. “We’re not huge; we’ll be out-sized in most of our matches,” Harvey said. “Our focus is on speeding things up. We need to be quick.” Harvey also wants more consistency in her team’s focus and intensity as the Bobcats strive to improve their conference standing from a season ago. Mercy, which won the Scarlet in 2007 and finished tied for second in 2008, finished fifth last year with a 3-7 league record. “Our goal is to compete for league,” she said. “Everyone likes to predict who will (the conference) before a single ball is hit, but when you play in a league this tough, anything can happen on any given night. I’m not willing to pick a league champion or even a bottom-feeder.”

Konkoly breaks record, leads Oak Hills By Tony Meale

Tommy Konkoly isn’t a burner, but once he gets going, he’s hard to stop. “Nobody works harder than Tommy,” Oak Hills High School head football coach Kurry Commins said of his senior tailback. “He’s not a blazer, but he’s got excellent vision.” Loveland found that out the hard way. In a 27-24 road win over the Tigers Sept. 10, Konkoly, a four-year starter, carried 33 times for a school-record 261 yards – breaking the previous mark of 247 set by 1992 graduate Shad Wetterich – and his 1-yard touchdown plunge in overtime gave Oak Hills the win. “The biggest thing is we have a big, strong O-Line that’s (well-coached),” said Konkoly, praising the alljunior front line of Caleb Stacy, Jake Urban, Chris Hilton, Dustin Ross and Derrek Ross. “They make my job so much easier.” The Highlanders have now won two of three since dropping their season-opener 14-7 to Anderson. “We’ve been working on the little things,” Konkoly said. “Last year, if we had gotten into that same situa-

tion with Loveland, I don’t think we would’ve won. But the guys this year really worked hard in the offseason.” After losing to Anderson, Oak Hills downed Harrison (41-14 Sept. 3) and Loveland before falling 48-10 at Hamilton Sept. 17. Konkoly, who is third in the Greater Miami Conference in rushing with 524 yards, has led the way. He averages 131.0 rushing yards per game and has six total touchdowns. He’s broken the 100-yard mark in three straight games and is second in the GMC with 557 all-purpose yards. “Tommy’s a total team player,” Commins said. “He’s one of the best players I’ve ever coached.” Another team player is senior Cory Burgin, a twoway player whose three interceptions are tied for first in the GMC. “Coaches told Cory they wanted him to play defense, and he just said, ‘Yes, sir,’” Konkoly said. “He’s been making a huge difference.” Said Commins, “There’s no doubt we needed a couple guys to step up, and for Cory to step up and secure that corner spot for us is big.” Also starring on defense

Panthers senior Ben Coffaro rushed 23 times for 156 yards and three touchdowns; he finished the game with 213 all-purpose yards. Coffaro leads the entire GCL with 884 all-purpose yards. Junior quarterback Ben Gramke finished 13-of-19 for 155 yards; six of those 13 completions were to senior fullback Josh Friedel, who had 76 yards. The Panthers held Chatard to 171 total yards and 2-of-12 on third-down conversions. They have now recorded a shutout in six consecutive seasons. Elder (2-2) hosts Lakewood St. Edward Sept. 25 before opening its league schedule against St. Xavier Oct. 1.

St. Xavier 17, Louisville Trinity 10

St. X junior Conor Hundley rushed 25 times for 206 yards and two touchdowns, including a 91-yarder in the first quarter, as the Bombers beat the top-ranked team in Kentucky. Over his last two games, Hundley has carried 47 times for 457 yards and five touchdowns. He leads the entire GCL in rushing with 699 yards. Senior quarterback Nick Albers was 14-of-19 for 100 yards. Sophomore wide receiver Trey Kilgore led the team with six receptions for 44 yards. The Bombers host Moeller Sept. 24 before traveling to The Pit to take on Elder Oct. 1.

Western Hills vs. Shroder

This game was played after Community Press deadlines. Western Hills, which entered the game 2-1, hosts Woodward (1-3) Sept. 23. is junior linebacker Karvon Beamon, who is fifth in the GMC with 2.5 sacks, and senior linebacker Ben Russell, who has an interception. “Ben makes all the plays when we need him to,” Konkoly said. Assisting Konkoly on

offense are senior Jacob Allison, who leads the team in receptions (six), receiving yards (102) and yards per carry (5.9); and senior quarterback Justin Hildreth, who is second in the GMC with 299 passing yards, “Justin is very capable,” Commins said. “He works

hard and comes with his lunch pail every day. He continues to get better.” Commins would like to see his team execute more consistently, but he’s been more than happy with the hard work his team has put forth. “We’ve continued to play very hard,” he said. “I think the guys have learned to trust each other, and that’s essential for high school teams – and really, all teams – to do.” Oak Hills (2-2, 0-1) continues its GMC slate at home against Sycamore (3-1, 10) Sept. 24 before traveling to Mason (2-2, 1-0) Oct. 1. Since 2004, the Highlanders have gone 15-28 in league play, but that doesn’t mean their eyes aren’t set high for the rest of 2010. “Our No. 1 goal is to win the GMC,” Commins said. “That’s been our goal since I’ve been here.” For the Highlanders, a league title would likely involve defeating Colerain, which has won 10 straight GMC crowns, in their regular-season finale Oct. 29. “We need to stay healthy and play hard each week (to give ourselves a chance) when we play Colerain at the end of the year,” Konkoly said. “I think we match up well with them.”

Question from Sept. 8

What do you think the Bengals record will be this year? Will you follow them more or less than in previous years? Why? “My first thought was 10-6, but since my family has season tickets I need to be more positive, I’ll say 12-4. I love the new additions to the offense … I’ll be very interested to see how that plays out.” C.A.S. “10 and 6. Have to say I like Chad. Should be an interesting year.” N.P. “I think they may go 11-5. I will watch to see if T.O. and Chad live up to expectations.” B.N. “I think they will go 10 and 6. I will watch them when the weather gets a little colder.” L.S.

“Will probably follow the Bengals less – not happy with TO in Cincy. Their record does not really matter – the Brown family will still be laughing all the way to the bank.” N.W.S. “12-4”


“I enjoy the Bengals and expect them to go 10-6. Their schedule is tougher this year. They have to play Indianapolis and San Diego due to their first place finish last year in the AFC North. Barring injuries, Carson Palmer is primed for a great year. The defense is good so they should be competitive in all games. Their first two games (at New England and Baltimore) will tell how good they can be. Go figure!” T.D.T. “10-6. I will follow them as in the past. I am a fan, but not eating Ochocincos yet.” G.G.

Small businesses hired quite frequently and do not anymore because they cannot predict what will happen in the near future so they either do not grow or worse go out of business. All I can say is make your voice heard on Nov. 2.” L.D.

“Republicans in control.”


C.A.S. N.W.S

“My investment portfolio, my retirement plan and mostly the lack of fear that I’ll have to keep working until I’m 75 just to afford the state-run home they’re going to put me in when the bank forecloses on my house! ‘Nuff said!!!” M.M. “What do I miss most about pre-recession life? The anxiety produced by the choice I make for health coverage each year as a retiree. “I thought it was bad, but it’s nothing like what I anticipate later in the year when I will have to choose again for one more year. In spite of the complexity of the whole thing, and the uncertainty about which choice would be best, it wasn’t as bad as it’s gonna be this year after The Messiah’s Health Care Plan has been enacted.” B.B. “Two years ago both my son and my son-in-law had secure, well-paying jobs (we thought). In that span of time both lost their jobs, got unemployment, then found new, lower-paying jobs with no seniority. “There is constant stress for three families that they’ll lose their jobs again.” R.V.

It was interesting to read the article by Betty Kamuf regarding the Strassels in the grocery business in Sayler Park. Al Strassel also operated a grocery in Price Hill on Elberon Avenue. As a youngster I used to scout through Mount Echo Park for 2 cent pop bottles. After finding several I would make my way to Strassel’s Grocery for a nickel ice cream cone with jimmies on it. But the most famous Strassel of all was Joe Strassel. He was on the Price Hill Incline returning to his farm with a load of manure when the cable on the incline car broke. Thus he was headed down

Plain truth about real pain Just by looking at me you can’t really tell. The only sign that I’ve been through nearly 17 years of chronic pain is a faint 3-inch, diagonal scar above my left clavicle, caused by the removal of a rib, muscles and scar tissue to relieve nerve pressure. For most that endure the torturous journey of chronic pain, there are no signs at all. Pain, of course, is completely invisible. September is National Pain Awareness Month for this very reason. According to data from the National Centers for Health Statistics, 76.2 million Americans suffer from chronic pain. This is more than diabetes, heart disease and cancer combined. Often, and unfortunately, family members and friends don’t believe their loved one is in pain because they can’t see it. Maybe you’re trying to get out of scrubbing the bathroom or raking the yard. Believe them. The pain is real. Seventeen years ago this November, the Monday after Thanksgiving weekend 1993, I woke up and my life was never the same. I’d had a minor fall a couple weeks prior, a few odd pains down my left arm and in my neck during the time in between, but nothing to even catch my attention, except in retrospect. That morning, something wasn’t right. By the end of the week, I had

pain like fire burning a path from my neck into my left shoulder and all the way down my arm into my hand. The pain has Amy never left. Monahan It has altered its rhythm, its Editor’s intensity at Notebook times, its depth of fire, its scope of possession of my body. Name a type of doctor, treatment, or therapy, I’ve tried it. I know what sitting all day at my desk at work and typing will do – muscle spasms, increased pain from holding my arms in front of me and literally holding my head up all day. I wear a TENS unit (transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation) nearly every day, all day during work hours to the point of lesions on my neck from the electrode pads. The electrical buzz coming through the pads has an effect of dulling pain. I receive monthly Botox shots to somewhat lessen the intense neck spasms that pull my head parallel to my shoulder and cinch my entire left arm inward and claw-like. I remind myself I am capable of performing everyday tasks such as laundry or washing dishes or

Support group

If you would like to take part in a support group now forming for those with Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy Syndrome or chronic pain or their loved ones, please e-mail Cyndi Ellis at Ellis, whose husband, Patrick, has RSD, is working to form the group due to a lack of one in the area, she said. changing bed sheets because I have two arms and two hands. But if I push myself too much, (after all I’ve already worked all day, and this is my limit,) I will literally be bedridden with intense pain. I’ve had to learn to humble myself and ask for help. This isn’t easy to do, especially when one looks perfectly healthy. Additionally, since chronic pain sufferers’ pain is indeed, chronic, masking it becomes a way of coping. Who wants to hear about today’s symptoms and ails? Only those very close to me know when I’m having a “bad pain day,” and perhaps the opposite is true, too. I rarely offer up details except when asked. At times, I am almost thankful for the scar I bear, one outward mark of all the years of pain. It says what I cannot.

German Museum marks 10 years in West Fork Park Ten years ago, on Sept. 23, 2000, the German Heritage Museum in West Fork Park, Green Township, opened its doors for the first time to a crowd of about 200 people. The German-American Citizens League, founded in 1895, finally had a home of its own and a depository of numerous items from German immigrants in the Tristate area. Re-erecting this two-story German-style log house from about 1840 was much more difficult than building a new house from scratch. The offer of this log house came from the Feist Family in Delhi when their land was being sold to a developer. They approached several German-American societies but had no takers. Thanks to the generosity of the then-Green Township trustees Bob Seitz, Tony Upton and Tracy Winkler, a wonderful location was found in West Fork Park. We are also grateful to Green Township for funding the basement, foundation and landscaping.

Maintaining “this old house” requires regular caulking, chinking, staining and other tasks such as evicting raccoons and filling woodpecker holes. In order to raise money for the building of the museum, donors could sponsor a log, window or a door. The idea of a Heritage Walk, proposed by Michael and Nancy Pelzel, consists of small and large engraved bricks on a plaza, in front of the museum, that people could buy. Mike and Nancy sold a record number of bricks in a short time and we are grateful for their dedication. Even though we have a website and quarterly newsletter we need more publicity; too many people never heard of us and this has to change. One way to join and help with the expenses is to become a Friend of the Museum. Details are found on our website: Manfred Schnetzer is vice president of the German American Citizens League and lives in Green Township.

Church feeds the Delhi community monthly

By Heidi Fallon

It isn’t just the food that brings people to the Shiloh United Methodist Church for a free community dinner once a month. The menu has become secondary to the once-amonth dinners. “We started coming after we saw posters in our apartment building,” said Pat Trustie, who along with her husband, Richard, were debating which salad dressing to try. “We’ve met some nice people and this is a way to have a nice dinner and get out for a while.” The food, prepared by church volunteers, is sometimes donated and sometimes, like at the most recent dinner, left over from another church function. “The first dinner we had was outside in the parking lot after that horrible windstorm two years ago,” said Janet Diaz, a longtime church member and dinner organizer. “It was such a hit, we’ve been doing this the last Friday of every month ever since.” The dinner’s may have moved inside, but the food and fellowship continues. Joe Mirus, a 45-year church member, said they prepare food for 150 to 175. “The main thing is to serve the community,” he said amidst the bustle in the kitchen. “Everyone is welcome. We don’t check their wallets and we don’t try and recruit anyone to come to church.” The congregation pitches in to help and donates food as requested. Youth group members and township scout troops also vol-

14-year-old Oak Hills High School freshman who has been helping out for about a year.

“I don’t go to church here, but the youth group sounds like fun.” Meeting new people and chatting with folks she sees every Sunday in the Shiloh pews is why Carol Grimm said she tries to come to the monthly dinners. “I’ve been going here for 42 years,” the

Bridgetown woman said. “I come for the fellowship and to support the dinner. “The food is always good and the desserts are the best.” Bonnie Cates, of Delhi Township, said she’s been coming to the dinners for a while. She brought a couple of family members to

How do I know I’m making the right decision? that we put forth effort. Imprudence complicates lives and brings misery to our door. What are some factors to help us become more prudent in our decisions? 1) Be inquisitive enough to gather all the facts and various sides of the issue involved. Half-truths leave us half-informed. 2) Know ourselves well. Some of our decisions are imprudent because we don’t realize how often we decide matters based only on our emotions and not on the facts. We must know when to trust our thoughts and emotions and when not to. 3) Do some “damn good thinking.” Reason logically, be honest, weigh solid moral principles and what is genuinely good for our self as well as others involved. One theologian described prudence as “the vigilant eye of love.” 4) Our greatest enemies are apathy, fear and selfishness. Apathy leads us to avoid decisions we personally need to make with the attitude of, “Who cares? Let somebody else decide.” Fear brings extreme caution, timidity in making decisions, or taking an unreasonable amount of time to make them. It can also lead us to dread displeasing others – so we conform to what others think is to be decided. Selfishness and pride can delude our minds into thinking, “I have all the answers so why take the

time to think deeply or discuss it with others?” “Why consider in my conscience what God might want?” 5) If necessary, be open to seek advice from someone competent whose wisdom we trust. They cannot make our decision for us but they may be able to help us

have greater confidence in the validity of our reasoning. Today many people seem to decide, even about important issues, on the basis of minimal information, few values, and little in-depth thinking. Short slogans and spin experts do

our thinking for us. Bye, bye, prudence! Father Lou Guntzelman is a Catholic priest of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati. Contact him at columns@ or P.O. Box 428541, Cincinnati, OH 45242.

No-cook banana pudding has great ‘a-peel’ Yesterday I took dinner to a friend who was ill. I wanted to bring a dessert for the family along with the meal but didn’t have a lot of time, so I decided to make banana pudding. Now usually I make the pudding from scratch, like a pastry cream, but that wasn’t going to happen yesterday. So I carried in my nobake version and it was a huge hit. Here’s the recipe for you to try.

This application, filed by US National Storage LLC, on behalf of DelFair Incorporated (property owner), proposes a development plan to affect the DelFair Shopping Center at 5271 Delhi Pike (also known as Hamilton County Auditor’s Book 540, Page 0042, Parcel 0023). The subject property is zoned “E” Retail Business District as shown on the maps of the Delhi Township Zoning Resolution. The application does not propose any change to the zone district designation. The Hamilton County Auditor’s tax plats show Del-Fair Incorporated as the owner of 5271 Delhi Pike (540-0042-0023). The proposed development plan would accommodate use of a portion of the shopping center as an indoor climate controlled storage facility. Materials concerning this matter are on file at the office of the Township Department of Development Services, located at the Township Fire Headquarters, 697 Neeb Road, Cincinnati, Ohio 45233 and can be reviewed between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. on regular business days for at least ten days prior to the meeting.
