BECAUSE COMMUNITY MATTERS
Delhi candidates share views By Kurt Backscheider
DELHI TWP. — Voters here will decide the new makeup of the township board of trustees when they cast ballots Tuesday, Nov. 5. Trustees Jerry Luebbers and Mike Davis are not seeking reelection. The candidates seeking election to the four-year term are Don Jasper, Leo Morand, Will Oswall, Kevin Rhodes and Delhi Township Fiscal Officer Cheryl Sieve.
Jasper, owner of logistics company DRJ Distributing LLC, is making his second bid for trustee. He ran for the position in 2006. “I think our board has been way too political,” he said. “They concern themselves with political agendas instead of community agendas.” He said the board’s main objective should be protecting
township residents and property values, and making sure tax dollars are spent wisely. He has no affiliations to political parties, and said he wouldn’t be intimidated to battle state legislators and their recent decisions to reduce funding to local governments. Another big issue Jasper said he’d work to address is combating the “growing, undesirable element in the township.” “I’d empower the police department to take a proactive approach to stopping crime,” he said. “I see the deterioration that happened in Price Hill over the last15 years and I don’t want that to happen in Delhi.”
He said he’d also work to instill a sense of pride in the township, and wants to unite all the community organizations and work with them to improve quality of life in Delhi. “I have the leadership skills needed to lead and not follow political doctrine,” Jasper said. “I’m not running a political campaign, I’m running a community campaign.”
Morand, an office administrator for a roofing company who also works part-time for the township parks and recreation department, is throwing his hat in the political ring for the
first time. “I think public safety is the most important issue,” he said. “I live close to the city of Cincinnati, and I would like to see more patrols over here.” One of his main goals would be ensuring police and fire services are protected and equipped with the resources they need, he said. The trustees also need to review all township finances and eliminate any wasteful spending, Morand said. To help generate tax revenue, he said he’d work to encourage investment and development in the business districts. “We need to get more viable businesses into Delhi, especially on Delhi Pike,” he said. “There are several big, empty buildings that need to be filled.” As an office manager, he said he has experience working with budgets and handling human resources issues like workers’ compensation. He also worked as a bailiff for Hamilton County

for eight years, which he said provided him experience in handling pressure and meeting deadlines. “I think some issues here get pushed down the line for months and months,” Morand said. “You have to make decisions.”

Renovations beginning at Price Hill Recreation Center By Kurt Backscheider firstname.lastname@example.org
EAST PRICE HILL — The Cin-
cinnati Recreation Commission is marking the beginning of a new era at the Price Hill Recreation Center. The 30-year-old center, near the corner of Warsaw and Hawthorne avenues in East Price Hill, is being completely renovated. Recreation commission leaders and city officials gathered with community members at the center Tuesday, Oct.1, to celebrate the project getting underway with a ceremonial “wall smash.” “I’m really excited to be here today,” said Christopher Bigham, director of the recreation commission. “This day is a long time in the works.” The highlights of the $4.1million renovation project include a 3,800-square-feet addition to the center, and a brand new

aquatic facility on the site. The aquatic facility will feature a six-lane, zero-depth entry swimming pool with an accessible entrance ramp, water spray features, two water slides and a restroom and concession area. Included in the addition to the center are new offices, an expanded fitness center which doubles the size of the existing weight room, a multipurpose room for programs and community meetings and a larger day care room. The center’s gymnasium will also be renovated, and the project will usher in new green space features, landscaping, improved site accessibility and new signs as well. “It will mean a lot to the comSee CENTER, Page A4

PRICE HILL — Two Greater Catholic League rivals are teaming up to help feed the community. The Elder Mom’s Club will host its annual collection drive for the Holy Family/St. Vincent de Paul Food Pantry during the football game between Elder and Moeller high schools Friday, Oct. 11, at the Pit. Jen Dugan, president of the Elder Mom’s Club, said this is

wall, is also a political newcomer. “I want to make sure Delhi moves in the right direction,” he said. “I want to make sure my children grow up with the same quality services I enjoy and the same services residents have come to expect.” There’s no question the biggest challenge facing the township is the budget and the state cuts that have impacted it, he said. “We obviously need to avoid wasteful spending in our departments and make sure those department budgets are tight,” Oswall said. “We also need
to look at collaborative efforts with surrounding townships and cities.” Delhi has mutual agreements with neighboring communities for police and fire services, and he said the township could examine possible partnerships for parks services as well. The overall goal is to maintain great services while at the same time keeping expenses to a minimum, he said. The other issue he said he wants to work on is encouraging economic development, which he said should have limited monetary support from township government. “We need to empower the private sector to get involved,” Oswall said. The township needs to
develop relationships with the College of Mount St. Joseph, the Delhi Business Association and other community organizations, and work together and help the township grow, he said. He deals with negotiations and compromises every day, and as a partner in his firm he has experience managing budgets and employees, he said. “I think that’s a huge asset,” he said.
Rhodes, a building inspector for Cincinnati, last ran for township trustee in 2009. He said he’s running again because township government is under attack.

“The latest state budget has cut the Local Government Fund again,” he said. “We know the severe impact it has had on our local services.” He said he’d work with fellow township officials and state legislators to stand up for Delhi, and he’d also make sure township organizations understand the continuing threat to local government. “We must all work together to keep our community strong, safe and independent,” Rhodes said. Implementing a property maintenance code would be another top priority of his. He said the code would establish
minimum maintenance requirements for existing buildings, and with the aging housing stock, bankowned property and absentee landlords in Delhi, a maintenance code is worth exploring. He said he would also build cooperation between the township’s administration and departments. “As we work together to maintain our outstanding safety, recreation, road and zoning services, it is important that we keep the community informed and involved and I look forward representing the residents of Delhi Township,” Rhodes said.
Sieve, a former sales and marketing director, has served as the township’s fiscal officer since August 2010. She’s also the chairwoman of the Oak Hills Alumni and Educational Foundation.

“Our township’s success is going to revolve around our ability to make smart and informed financial decisions,” she said. “I think I’ve proven as fiscal officer I’m the candidate to do that.” Delhi’s general fund has been reduced about 70 percent due to state cuts during her term as fiscal officer, but she said the township has been able to maintain its services and operate on a lean budget. Her experience navigating these financial challenges will help ensure the township’s success, she said. “I want to provide the citizens with the best services for their dollar, and provide the departments with adequate and accurate manpower and equipment,” Sieve said. “I will work to optimize both of those, but it has to be within fiscal restraint.” She also wants to find alternative revenue sources for the parks department through establishing business partnerships, securing grants and building a strong volunteer program, and she said she’ll respect all the community organizations from which the township benefits. “I want to bring everyone back together and work as one community,” she said.

Fundraiser supports scholarship fund at Elder By Kurt Backscheider email@example.com
PRICE HILL — A group of Elder High School alumni invite West Siders to a party benefiting a scholarship fund at their alma mater. Members of the Hank Mueller Elder Veterans Scholarship Fund committee are hosting a fundraiser from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 13, at Jim & Jack’s, 3456 River Road. The “Pre-Game Bash and Fundraiser Party” will feature activities before and during the Cincinnati Bengals game. The Bengals play the Buffalo Bills at 1 p.m. “Hank has been a driving force among our classmates,” said Price Hill resident Tom Scanlon, a 1966 Elder graduate who serves on the scholarship committee. “He’s such a positive spirit.” Henry J. Mueller III, known as Hank, enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps after graduating from Elder in 1966, and within a year was shipped to Vietnam. Thirty-three days after arriving there, his unit was ambushed while trying to rescue other Marines and a mortar round severely wounded him. He was blinded and suffered brain trauma from the shrapnel. Scanlon said during the 15 months he spent recovering at Bethesda Naval Hospital outside Washington, D.C., Elder staff and students sent him prayers and a care package every month. The support from the Elder community was transformational for Mueller, and it gave him the will and purpose to live, Scanlon said. Mueller, who now lives in Florida and works as a lay minister, went on to graduate from college, marry, raise a family and serve as an agent for good in
his community. Inspired by Mueller’s resolve, Scanlon said members of the class of 1966 established the Hank Mueller scholarship about five years ago to honor him and all the other men from Elder who served their country. The scholarship provides tuition assistance to Elder students who are descendants of military veterans. “We just want to help Hank give back to Elder High School,” Scanlon said. “Hopefully we’re doing some good work.” Mueller said he lived across the street from Elder Stadium after he came home from the war, and he would often walk over the the empty Pit, sit on the concrete grandstands and look toward the school. Even though he couldn’t see the building, he said he could remember the way it looked in his mind and he thought of all the men who graduated before him. “Whether they became police officers, firefighters, doctors, lawyers or medics, you know they all carried that Elder spirit with them whenever they went out into the world,” he said. “It’s a real blessing to be a graduate of Elder High School.” Mueller said he’s grateful to his friends for thinking of him and naming a scholarship after him, and he’s proud the fund gives other young men the opportunity to obtain the same foundation he did as a teenager. “It’s a beautiful feeling,” he said. Scanlon said the fundraising party will have games and prizes, food and a cash bar. There will be several raffle drawings, including a $1,000 cash prize raffle, a barbecue grill raffle and a two-hour helicop-
ter ride raffle, he said. The committee’s goal is to raise $10,000 for the scholarship fund, he said. “Hank is an amazing role model,” Scanlon said. “It’s a real privilege to provide a vehicle for him to give back to Elder, and we’re honored to do it.” For more information about the scholarship and the fundraiser, visit www.hank33.org.

Elder High School, in collaboration with its class of 1966, hosted a dedication and devotional Mass earlier this year honoring the 11 men from Elder who died during the Vietnam War. Although wounded in combat, 1966 Elder graduate Hank Mueller was able to come home from the war. He and his classmates established the Hank Mueller Elder Veterans Scholarship Fund to give back to their alma mater. A fundraiser for the scholarship is set for Sunday, Oct. 13.FILE

munity,” said Tonaruse Witherspoon, a community center director at the center. “The kids are looking forward to the new renovation ... and the seniors are looking forward to coming back home, too.” He said as they were moving equipment and
furniture out of the center in preparation for construction to begin, many children asked what’s happening to the center and were worried it was closing permanently. Witherspoon said he and other staff members reassured the children the center will open again, and they will like the finished product. Tom Croft, vice president of the East Price Hill Improvement Association, said the project represents the long-term commitment of the neighborhood to its recreation center, and the recreation commission’s commitment to the community. Neighbors appreciate the collaboration between the commission and the community in gathering input for the project and asking the residents what they would like to see at the new center, he said.

ing donations of non-perishable items. Those who would like to help can bring such food items as canned fruit and vegetables, cereal, peanut butter, pasta and canned meat or tuna. Personal care items like toothpaste, shampoo, soap and toilet paper, and baby diapers and wipes are also needed. Monetary donations will be accepted as well. Moeller’s Mackey said that even though the two schools are rivals, working together to help the community is not only positive for the young men that attend each school, but also reinforces

“Our thanks to the Cincinnati Recreation Commission for its long-term commitment to our neighborhood,” Croft said. “We truly, truly appreciate it.” Bigham said the center will be closed for about 15 months to allow construction to take place.
“When it reopens you will be amazed,” he said. “You will walk into this site and it will not even look like what it looks like now.” The center is scheduled to reopen Feb. 2, 2015. The pool will be open for the 2015 season.
the lessons they learn at school. “In Catholic schools, social justice is an important subject taught to the boys,” she said. “Anything we can do to assist in someone’s cause shows the boys a positive example.” The Holy Family/St. Vincent de Paul Food Pantry assisted nearly 2,000 families in June, July and August. The pantry served close to 6,000 clients, of whom more than 2,700 are children. Dugan said the numbers are staggering when you look at the statistics of how many families the pantry served, especially the number of children. “This is real life, and it’s in our back yard,” she said. “We can be a part of something special.”
Mackey said that because Moeller students have their own food drives within school, where they’re the one collecting food and donations, it’s good for them to see that their parents are helping out as well. “The most positive part for Moeller is that it shows the boys that their parents also support them in other ways off the field, too,” she said. While the collection drive is largely coordinated by the Mom’s Club, she said students also help to earn service hours. “Our hope is to show the young men of Elder and Moeller that the GCL is more than just two rivals competing on a football field and other sports,” she said.

CHEVIOT — Jeff Baker said the city has great potential to be a cultural destination. To promote Cheviot and its possibility of being home to more art galleries, quaint shops and new cafes and restaurants, Baker, who serves as an at-large city councilman, is helping organize the inaugural Cheviot Music & Arts Festival. Planned by the Cheviot Cultural Development Committee in collaboration with the Cheviot Firemen’s Association, the festival runs 1-7 p.m. Saturday, Oct.19, at the Cheviot Memorial Fieldhouse, 3729 Robb Ave. “It’s the start of what we want to accomplish here in Cheviot,” said Baker, owner of Higher Ground Coffee House on Harrison Avenue. “We’re trying to become more culturally relevant, and this is the first of many events we want to plan.” Not only does the festival serve as a way to attract people to the city and open their eyes to the sturdy housing stock and potential for a thriving business district, he said it will also raise money to support the Cheviot Fire Department. All proceeds from the event will benefit the fire department. Baker said area musicians will provide enter-

He said the food and drink vendors include Rhinegeist Brewery, Henke Winery, NYPD Pizza and Game Time Sports Bar & Grill. The festival will feature art presentations from a graffiti artist, airbrushing artists and a pottery spinner as well, he said. Members of the Cheviot Fire Department will provide a live demonstra-
tion of how the “jaws of life” emergency rescue tool is used. Baker said city leaders are looking for ways to encourage economic development in Cheviot, and promoting and attracting the arts is one way to boost the economy. He and his fellow committee members hope the Cheviot Music & Arts Festival, along with future events, will bring people to the city and help them realize Cheviot is a great place to live and do business, he said. “We obviously would love to have a huge turnout,” he said.

St. Ursula student uses summer to explore careers For St. Ursula Academy student Elena Helmers-Wegman of Price Hill, summer was certainly not a time to take a break from learning. She attended the INTERalliance IT Careers Camp at Northern Kentucky University and won top individual honors, while playing a vital role on “Team Toyota” whose project was named the most outstanding project for the week. HelmersSt. Ursula’s Wegman curriculum focuses on how students’ learning relates to the “real world”. This week long camp at NKU, sponsored by the INTERalliance of Greater Cincinnati, allows high school students to work with management and Information Technology (IT) departments of large corporations for one week during the summer. This “real-world” experience encourages the attendees to explore IT related careers and then challenges students to create a capstone project that will create substantial employment and career opportunities
for people with disabilities. Helmers-Wegman was the project manager of “Team Toyota”, which won the Technology Optimized Business Enterprise (TOBE) award, the top award given to the best proposal from a pool of many qualified plans. Additionally, her team accumulated the most points over the week from various competitions. Due to her outstanding leadership abilities HelmersWegman was named Ms. INTERalliance for the week. At St. Ursula Academy, she is a leader as well. “Elena is a hard worker, has great ethics and seems to be passionate about many things,” says teacher Barb Baker. Helmers-Wegman is an Ambassador at the school and plays field hockey. She recently participated in a mission trip sponsored by the St. Ursula Community Service Learning Department and is a regular volunteer at the Bethany House and Christ Hospital. Additionally, as a result of her enthusiasm about the INTERalliance summer program, she hopes to develop an INTERalliance chapter at St. Ursula Academy

Delhi Middle School
The Greater Cincinnati Foundation awarded a $1,000 grant to Kenny Boatright, sev-
enth-grade language arts teacher, and the Mock Newberry Book Club. The grant alleviates most of the cost of running a book club, which includes books, snacks, guest speakers and a field trip, and allows for a large group of students to participate. The John Newberry Medal is awarded annually to the author of the most distinguished contribution to American literature for children published in English in the United States during the preceding year. The Mock Newberry Club begins in September and lasts through January, when the Newberry award is announced. The group meets, on average, three times a month. Students are required to read at least one book every two weeks. Through group and online discussions, students talk about books and
use the same criteria as the real committee does to rate books and discuss them. In the end, the students choose three books (a winner and two honor books) and tally up as a group to pick their winner. Then on the day of the Newberry announcement, the students gather for lunch in the library as a group and watch the presentation which also announces the winners of many other literary awards from the American Literary Association.

McAuley creates new lounge for seniors
Claire Dieckman, left, and Hannah Berter study in the new senior lounge at McAuley High School. PROVIDED
Fabrics, furniture, artwork, a color scheme and love: These were supplies McAuley English teacher and student activities coordinator Lisa Rocklin collected over the summer in order to create a dynamic new space for the seniors. Cheryl Sucher, McAuley president/principal, authorized the rehabbing of an unused room in the rear of the cafeteria that had become a storage area in recent years. Prior to that, it had once served as the faculty dining room. This summer, the room was emptied, polished and transformed into the new Senior Lounge. Rocklin spent part of her summer shopping for items to go in the room, including comfortable couches, gaming rock-
ers, multipurpose end tables and traditional café tables and chairs. The pale pink room has bright pops of color in red, hot pink and black. The lounge became a family project when Rocklin enlisted her family to help bring the room together. Husband Tony picked up couches, drilled holes and hemmed curtains; father-in-law Bill worked his Photoshop magic to produce pop art featuring Molly Mohawk, McAuley’s mascot; and sister-in-law Lori Lester unleashed her Cricut machine to make lettering for fabric-covered canvases. Every purchase also endured the approval or rejection of McAuley alumna Sarah Rocklin ‘12 and current junior Ashley Rocklin. Senior Clare Knecht shared
her artistic talents on a large canvas that has become the focal point of the lounge. The oversized cursive text states: “When you love what you have, you have everything you need.” That message, along with quotes by Catherine McAuley, Mother Teresa, Gandhi and others, conveys the overall theme of the room. Love is evident, right down to the IKEA heart pillows on the couch. “The senior lounge is the perfect place for us to come together. I’m so grateful to have teachers who were willing to listen to us as a class and provide such a cool place to study. This room is a great addition to my senior year and is something I will always remember,” senior Ellie Thiemann said.

CINCINNATI — What a day it was for the St. Xavier High School golf team. The Bombers set a new Division I southwest sectional tournament record after shooting a team total of 285 at Miami Whitewater Golf Course Oct. 2, breaking their previous record of 291. “When you’re playing golf as a team game everybody has to stay in it until the end because you never know whose score is going to count,” St. X coach Alex Kepley said. “… It’s beyond words to have a 67 and two 71s.” The 4-under par 67 came from sophomore Kirran Magowan, who earned medalist honors by four strokes over teammates Matt Schiller and Brendan Keating. “He is the most capable player of being able to do that on a consistent basis,” Kepley said of Magowan. “He’s had a tremendous number of good rounds, but this one is special.” Right behind the Bombers were the Oak Hills Highlanders with a team total of 305, just two strokes off their course record of 303. “… To see the growth of these kids is phenomenal,” Highlander coach Aron Strine said. “The consistency has been great and it’s been a fan-

tastic year so far and hopefully it continues.” Senior Sam Meek finished fourth overall with a 1-over par 72. After shooting 38 on the front nine, Meek was able to turn it up on the back nine and closed with a 1-under 34. “Once he really got the feel and had a few putts roll in for him it gave him a lot of confidence,” Strine said. After Fairfield finished with a total of 317, the final qualifying position came down to two familiar foes in Elder

the 6-yard line of Dwire Field at Mason High School’s Atrium Stadium, Cary Jones and Khiren Beamon found each other’s hand and held it tight. The Oak Hills High School seniors had just collided inside the 5-yard line and the crowd watched their helmets pop off and whisk through the air to the 10-yard line as the two lay motionless on the field. Both were immobilized and taken off the field via stretcher and taken to the hospital. “I just remember waking up in the hospital and wondering what happened,” Beamon said before an Oct. 1 practice, not two weeks after the Sept. 20 incident. “I was trying to figure out everything and then I was more worried about (Cary).” The two best friends, who have known each other since the first grade, were diagnosed with mild concussions and Beamon was placed in a neck brace and was initially told to be ready for this to be the end of his football career. That doesn’t seem to be the case, as both players were in full pads Oct. 1 but had yet been cleared for full contact. The amount of support and love shown to the duo in the hours and days following the hit was inspiring. Both their Twitter accounts and cell phones blew up with signs of love and care, and it was something that struck a deep nerve with Jones. “I kind of joked with a few of my classmates and told them I didn’t know I was that important to people,” the full safety

said. “It made me feel so good about myself that people were out there caring and showing love for me and my family as well as him and his family.” What wasn’t so easy was telling their families they were ready to take the field again. Jones’ dad isn’t much of a football fan to begin with, while his mother showed some hesitation at first before yielding her trust back in her son. For Beamon, who comes from a family of 10, saw a little more backlash. “… All my little sisters were like ‘you are not going back out there. You’re not,’” the defensive back said. “My mom said if I come to your games I’m going to watch it from the back of my hands.” In the end, what was a scary accident has turned into a moment two best friends can now somewhat laugh and joke about. “I tell him (I’m glad it was you that I collided with) every day,” Beamon said. “I’m glad it was him and not the Mason kid. … With Cary, he’ll joke about it and tell me to shut up before I knock you out again. We’re able to mess around about it a lot now.”

were aligned the Gamble Montessori Gators would be 4-1, not 1-4 this season. A variety of factors, both on and off the football field, have contributed to the Gators’ rough start. For the first time in three years the school is back in its original building in Westwood and the transition is still underway. “The locker room isn’t ready and we just have so much stuff going on it’s hard to even think about the whole football perspective sometimes,” coach Stan West said. “I just keep telling the guys we are still young though.” With a roster of just 22 players, the Gators boast only three seniors, but youth means growing pains and mistakes and West has seen too many mistakes that have led to a couple losses this season.
“Just bad snaps, missed tackles and the little things,” he said. “That comes from not having everybody here during two-adays and when school started I had five or six kids that came in that need to get in the weight room. We have to change some things around here.” The one area that hasn’t been troubling has been the offense. The Gators have scored 20-plus points in four of their five games and are averaging 25.2 points per game despite being shutout in their season opener. Leading West’s offense is senior weapon Javontae Lipscomb. The running back/wide receiver/special teams specialist has 10 total touchdowns on the season, 472 rushing yards, 251 receiving yards and 390 kick-return yards. As a junior he put up more than 1,100 rushing yards and scored 11 touchdowns. “He makes moves that you just can’t coach,” West said, who was the defensive coordinator
at Clark Montessori before coming to Gamble. “He can make himself small then he just comes out of the crowd and there he goes. I don’t care what team it is, once he gets the opportunity to get the ball in his hands, he is dynamic.” Junior Tim Andrews is in his second year playing quarterback after splitting time at the position last season. Through five games he completing nearly 55 percent of his passes for 851 yards and nine touchdowns. “He’s coming along,” West said of his quarterback. “Tim is his own worst enemy. It’s a mental thing. I try to explain to him and he thinks we are in the NFL where he throws to a spot instead of the man. That’s where he makes most of his mistakes.” On the other side of the ball is where the Gators find themselves in trouble. The defense is giving up more than 39 points per game and West knows his young guys must step up down the stretch.
LOOKING AHEAD What: Gamble Montessori at Manchester High School football game When: 7:30 p.m., Friday, Oct. 11. Where: Manchester High School, 130 Wayne Frye Drive, Manchester, OH 45144 Fun fact: This is the first matchup between the two schools. The Greyhounds are led by sophomore Jordan Freeman, who has 729 total yards on the season (307 rushing, 422 passing).
“You give me two stops and we are going to be you,” the coach said. “… It’s playing guys a lot but you have to realize I lost some big kids last year. … We’re trying to plug some guys and we’re small. We are not that big, we have to get quicker, faster and we just have to beat people to the punch.”

VIEWPOINTS A10 • DELHI PRESS • OCTOBER 9, 2013
Working to save township government existing zoning regulations. It would establish minimum maintenance requirements for existing buildings. With aging housing stock, investors, bank owned property, absent landlords and even Section 8 owning property in Delhi a property maintenance code should be explored. A property maintenance code will preserve property values, keep a stable community and invite good neighbors. Finally, I will build cooperation among the township’s administration and departments. Our township administrator, Pete Landrum, has done an excellent job preparing the township budget and working with all departments. His knowledge and professionalism has been a real plus for Delhi. As we work together to maintain our outstanding safety, recreation, road and zoning services it is important that we keep the community informed and involved. My wife, Rhonda, and I have been lifelong Delhi residents, and both of us graduated from Oak Hills High School. I graduated from Mercy Hospital Paramedic Training in 1990 and am a member of the Delhi Township Zoning Commission. I am employed by the city of Cincinnati as a building in-

spector and formerly a firefighter/ paramedic and fire inspector for Green Township. I am a member of the Cincinnati Monitoring and Detection Team and have specialized training in hazardous materials and emergency operations, asbestos building inspections and management planning as well as being a state-certified fire safety inspector and a Class III Ohio building inspector. I have served on two major township fire departments and have dealt with important construction, demolition, housing and zoning issues and will bring a unique background to the Delhi Board of Trustees. I look forward to working for and being available to all Delhi residents. My home phone number is 513-451-5154. My e-mail is email@example.com and my campaign page on the Internet can be found at facebook.com/kevinrhodes2013 . Please feel free to call or e-mail me if you have any questions about the township or the election. Election Day is Tuesday, Nov. 5. You have two votes for trustee. I kindly ask for your vote. Let’s work together. Kevin Rhodes is a candidate for Delhi Township trustee.
CH@TROOM Oct. 2 question Congress has passed an exemption from federal law to allow the Delta Queen to once again operate as an overnight passenger vessel. Would you feel safe as a passenger on the Delta Queen? Why or why not?
“I would feel safe aboard the Delta Queen on the Ohio and Mississippi rivers. Compare the DQ’s safety record versus the Ocean-going Carnival cruise liners with thousand of passengers on board. Granted the DQ is wood, but at least land is in site 100 percent of the time and there are not any Somali pirates (Indian Ocean), ice bergs (Titanic) or cowardly captains (Costa Concordia). It will be great to see the Delta Queen back in the Queen City at the New Banks. Hopefully The Belle of Louisville will be here to race the DQ again for opening day. I will look forward to that overhead picture (from a blimp) and all the politicians there taking credit. They may outnumber the passengers. Go figure!”
“I would feel more safe on the Delta Queen, for if were to sink, at least you could swim to shore. If I were to ride with the government, I think we just keep sinking and no way to be saved.”
“Why not? The Delta Queen still appears as a sound vessel, and I am certain all maintenance is up to par according to maritime and Coast Guard regulations. Yes, I would love to take a trip on this historic boat.”
THIS WEEK���S QUESTION Have your health care plan premiums increased and terms changed significantly for 2014? Why do you think there was or was not a significant change? Every week we ask readers a question they can reply to via e-mail. Send your answers to delhipress @communitypress.com with Chatroom in the subject line.
“What part of wooden superstructure ships not being safe for overnight passengers don't we understand? This regulation was put in place for a good reason. Sentimentality is not a reasonable justification to risk people's lives.”
“I would feel very safe on the Delta Queen. This boat has been a long tradition on the Ohio River and a true spirit for the city of Cincinnati. The company that owns the Queen has taken very good care of it.
“I remember this same battle being waged over 40 years ago and several times in the interim. I have no idea why Congress cannot resolve this matter once and for all. “I would love the opportunity to take a lengthy cruise on the Queen, confident the crew is well-trained and the boat is equipped with adequate safety gear. “The whole issue in the past was the wooden hull of this vessel. With the lock systems on the waterways and the radar/sonar and other modern navigational aids, I very much doubt a fatal accident could occur due to the hull's material

I am running for Delhi Trustee for three main reasons: First, it is no secret that our township form of government is under attack. The latest state budget has cut the local government fund again. We know the severe impact it has had on our local services. There are some in Columbus who want to do Kevin Rhodes COMMUNITY PRESS away with townships and GUEST COLUMNIST merge us into some metro or bigger government. I don’t want that, nor should you. I will work with other township officials and our state legislators to fight for Delhi. I will be sure township organizations including the Civic Club, the Business Association, the seniors, the Skirt Game Committee, the veteran’s organization, the athletic associations and our schools and churches understand the continuing threat to our local government. We must all work together to keep our community strong, safe and independent. Second, I propose implementing a property maintenance code to coincide with
“As much as the Delta Queen is part of Cincinnati tradition, I personally would not want to spend time traveling on an old wooden boat. “While I like adventure, the DQ is way past its prime and it was taken out of service for good reason, it is dangerous. It does not meet federal standards and Mr. Chabot is trying to make points with the old folks on the West Side by endangering them. “But the Delta Queen is due for retirement. Let her go.”
Sept. 25 question Should college athletes be paid? If so, now much? If not, why not?
“Division 1 (FBS) athletes on full scholarship get room, board, meals, tuition and books. These scholarships can last up to five years; so far so good. However the Scholarships can be withdrawn or renewed on a yearly basis. Not all athletes playing a sport have these 'full rides.’ Athletes on full rides are not allowed to work. They put in about 30 hours per week on their sport plus going to class and studying. Many athletes come from homes that can not provide spending money; they cannot sell their tickets or memorabilia. Many of these college sports (football, basketball) provide billions in revenue to the colleges via TV packages and tickets sales. I have no problem with these athletes getting some reasonable spending money.”
On Dec. 17, 1904, Orville and Wilbur Wright shocked the nation when they successfully conducted an experimental flight at Kill Devil Hill about four miles from Kitty Hawk, NC. They had developed a practical flying machine capable Betty Kamuf of taking off COMMUNITY PRESS in all sorts of GUEST COLUMNIST weather conditions and flying to a predetermined sight without crashing. It was an accomplishment that started America’s golden age of aircraft. Their little aircraft was nine-feet high, 21-feet-oneinch long and had a wingspan of 40-feet-by-40-inches. The wood, fabric and metal tubing plane weighed 605 pounds. The little airplane was in the air 12 seconds and flew 125 feet. It was the first sustained and controlled heavier-thanair powered flight in history. As word spread around the world, aircraft aeronautical engineers in America and Europe begin to build their own airplanes. Each day new first were happening as pilots flew higher, faster and stayed in the air longer. In 1911, the Post Office Department decided to give it a try. Flying was faster than trucks and they started using airplanes for airmail. Then other businesses decided that they could move freight around faster, and the airplane took off. The military used the airplane for some reconnaissance flying and attacks during WWI. But they felt the airplane’s instability and lack of control made it an unsuitable weapon. However, the pilots that flew the airplanes loved the adventure and kept flying. They performed stunts and trick flying at places like the Hamilton County Fairs and carnivals. Lunken Airport opened in 1925 as a 1,000-acre airport, the largest in the world at that time. They had air shows. Asa Butterfield after being discharged from
the army participated in stunt flying. While flying upside down in an air show at the Boone County Airport he fell out of the open cockpit and landed unhurt on the river bank. Flying became so popular by the end of the roaring ’20s that Cincinnati had many small airports. There was one in Colerain Township by the Northgate Mall. Green Township had one East of Ebenezer and South of Bridgetown Road. The hanger and runways of the Frank Airport contained 59 acre between Eyrich, North Glen and Coral Gables. The airport had both north-south and east-west grass runways. At the grand opening in 1929 the Spirit of St Louis, (Charles Lindbergh’s airplane) and other aircraft performed. Barnstorming and parachuting by the Triangle Parachute Club and private aircraft were the main user of the airport. John Doberli, owner of an excavating and road construction business from Sayler Park, was a pilot and flew a four passenger Cesena 180. He went to Michigan and brought Christmas trees to sell. He loved fishing and took fishing trips with his friends. It was once used a staging area during the 1937 floor for the relief effort. Many of the roads to Indiana were flooded. There never were any commercial flights from the airport, and existing on its small income was difficult especially during the depression. The name was changed to Western Hills Airport in the 1930s and to Cheviot in 1945. The final blow came with WWII. In 1945 all the pilots and mechanics were called away to train pilots for WWII. The airport closed and the top hanger was taken to Miami University where it still is today. Betty Kamuf is a winner of Griffin Yeatman Award for Historical Preservation. She lives in Sayler Park.

Two-way brisket can be made in oven, slow cooker
The seasons on our little patch of heaven are marked by what’s going on outside in our gardens and what my husband, Frank, is doing with our outside equipment. Right now he’s “salting things away for the winter,” meaning he’s servicing the tiller, tractor, boat and lawn mowers for a winter rest in the garage. Our bell peppers have finally ripened, so I was able to add them Rita to an antipasto Heikenfeld tray I made for a friend’s rehearsRITA’S KITCHEN al dinner.
Need a stunning and delicious appetizer? An antipasto tray fills the bill. It is not only appealing to the eye, but there’s something on the tray for everybody. Go to your olive bar and ask lots of questions. I went to the Eastgate Jungle Jim’s olive bar and was able to sample whatever I wanted. This will help in choosing the right ingredients for your budget and guests. I did choose olives without pits. Since prosciutto is expensive, I bought a few slices to garnish and folded them over on top of the antipasto. I also sprinkled a can of chickpeas on top. The nice thing about this recipe is that it can be assembled a day ahead. For the sauce, I use Caesar salad dressing with fresh herbs stirred in. I drizzle the dressing on right before I serve it.

a disposable pan over the fish). Leave it alone until about 70 percent of the fish is done on first side. You’ll know it by the looks and also if it will release easily. This allows fish to form a nice crust. Turn it and finish cooking. The rule of about 7-10 minutes per inch of thickness works, also. Start with 7 minutes and go from there.

My favorite two-way brisket Brisket is a cut of meat from the lower chest or breast of beef. It is amazingly flavorful, but tough, so slow cooking is a must. Either way you cook this – in the oven or in a slow cooker – the brisket turns out tender and so delicious. Serve with mashed potatoes or noodles. 3 pounds beef brisket 2 cups chili sauce 1 cup brown sugar, packed 1 cup beef broth 1 very large onion, sliced 1 ⁄4 teaspoon ground cloves 3 bay leaves Salt and pepper to taste
Oven: Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Combine chili sauce, sugar and broth. Pour about half of this in the bottom of roasting pan. Place brisket on sauce, fat side up. Distribute
onion, cloves and bay leaves over brisket. Pour rest of sauce over. Cover and bake 50-55 minutes per pound or until meat is fork tender. Remove brisket from pan and remove bay leaves and whole cloves. Cut brisket across the grain. Skim off any fat from top of sauce. Pour sauce over brisket (or put sauce in refrigerator overnight and the fat will congeal on top for easy removal. Then reheat with brisket in 375 degree oven, covered, or in microwave). Slow cooker: I like to cook mine 9-12 hours or so on low, until meltingly tender.

Honing steels: “My honing/ knife steel doesn’t work anymore. Should I replace it?” Run your thumbnail around the circumference of the tool. If you can still feel grooves, your steel is still useful. It is magnetized to pick up microscopic fillings that come off the knife’s blade. It’s a good idea to rub the steel with a cloth after use so grooves don’t get clogged. Now unless the honer has diamond chips in it, most steels won’t sharpen a dull knife (they restore the knife’s bite by straightening the microscopic “teeth” at the edge that fold with use). Now even if your honing steel is in good condition, sometimes a knife doesn’t respond to honing. If that happens, it’s time to get the knife sharpened professionally.

‘Dracula’ haunts Covedale stage Covedale Center for the Performing Arts presents “Dracula” Oct. 17Nov. 10. Lucy Seward, whose father is the doctor in charge of an English sanitorium, has been attacked by some mysterious illness. Dr. Van Helsing, a specialist, believes that the girl is the victim of a vampire, a sort of ghost that goes about at night sucking blood from its victims. The vampire is at last found to be a certain Count Dracula, whose ghost is at last laid to rest in a striking and novel manner. Greg Procaccino is director; Laura Weil is production stage manager.

Beware of e-mail, internet scammers These days scammers have taken to the internet to steal your money with fake emails, fraudulent websites and misleading sales offers. While internet scams are numerous, several consumers still report receiving Howard scams Ain through the mail. HEY HOWARD! A Fort Thomas man wrote me about a credit card offer he received from AmTrade International Bank. It offered him a credit card with “A $3,600 Visa credit limit! Guaranteed!” The man sent what was supposed to have been a refundable $900 fee, but says he never received the credit card nor a pre-paid gas card that was also promised. The 74-year-old man says he’s on a fixed income so the loss of all that money hit him pretty hard. Although he paid by check and contacted the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Federal Trade Commission, he was told nothing could be done to recover his money. Such scams are very popular so remem-
ber never send money to someone who promises to loan you money or extend credit. A Hyde Park woman wrote me to say she knew immediately the letter she received was a scam. It allegedly came from Publishers Clearing House and used the company’s real address. The $1.5 million she was told she won was anything but real. She knew not to bother calling the long distance phone number given to claim her winnings. A Wyoming woman received a letter telling her she qualified for an award of two round-trip airline tickets. She suspected it was a scam because there was no return address and the letter had bad punctuation. So she too was told to call a phone number to claim her prize, allegedly valued at nearly $1,400. Better Business Bureau says this is just a phishing scam intending to steal people’s personal information. This woman never entered a contest to receive this award of two free airline tickets plus two nights a major hotel. Fortunately, just like the Hyde Park woman, the Wyoming woman didn’t call the number
and says she wants to warn others about this scam. Many people across the nation have received this letter. One person who called was told they first had to attend a timeshare sales presentation before they could receive the tickets they won. Another person who called was told they had to give their credit card number over the phone. One of the most frequent scams I’ve run into involves criminals sending you what appears to be a real check for thousands of dollars. You’re supposed to deposit the check, keep some of the money, then wire the rest to the sender. Unfortunately, many consumers learn too late that the check they received in the mail is phony – and now they’re on the hook to repay the bank for the good money they wired to the criminals. Bottom line, the mail is still full of scams these days so you have to beware. Howard Ain’s column appears bi-weekly in the Community Press newspapers. He appears regularly as the Troubleshooter on WKRC-TV Local 12 News. Email him at email@example.com.

Dentist receives Marvin Fisk Humanitarian Award Dr. Linda Smith, a general dentist in Loveland, has been awarded the Marvin Fisk Humanitarian Award from the Ohio Dental Association. Smith, a resident of Delhi Township, received the award at the Callahan Celebration of Excellence Sept. 20 in conjunction with the ODA Annual Session Smith received the award for her dedication to community care programs, in particular a clinic that provides care to children in need. “Locally, Dr. Smith serves on our Access to
Dental Care Committee,” Cincinnati Dental Society Executive Director Vicki NixSmith on wrote in her letter of recommendation. “This committee is directly responsible for our charitable programs such as ‘Give Kids a Smile,’ ‘Leave No Vet Behind,’ Roselawn Dental Center and Lighthouse Youth Services programs. She served as co-chair in 2005 and 2010. Dr. Smith has been
acting as a consultant helping train and advise the chairs of our programs. Her involvement is one of the many reasons our programs and events have been consistently successful. She enjoys working in this capacity, so we anticipate that she will continue to do so for many years to come.” Smith went to dental school at the University of Louisville and received her DMD in 1982. Smith is very involved with many community service projects in her area. “I’ve been so fortu-
nate that I just felt like I needed to give back to the community,” she said. One project in particular that she is involved in and enjoys is the Cincinnati Dental Society’s Roselawn Dental Center, which is a free clinic that provides care to children up to 200 percent of the poverty level who do not have insurance or Medicaid. She has served as a volunteer dentist there and also as the volunteer project manager. Smith is also a volunteer dentist with the Leave No Vet Behind
program and works with the CincySmiles Sealant Program, among other volunteer activities in her community, and she received the Cincinnati Dental Society’s Meritorious Service Award in 2010. “It is not unusual for her to spend over 100 volunteer hours yearly and she is our back-up dentist at the Dental Center when needed,” Nixon wrote. Smith is active in numerous councils and programs of the Ohio Dental Association and Cincinnati Dental Society and served as the so-
ciety’s first female president. She also is a member of the Pierre Fauchard Academy, The International College of Dentists and The American College of Dentists. The Marvin Fisk Humanitarian Award is given to a dentist who is working to improve the oral health of people in need, of all ages and from all walks of life. The award winner gives of his or her time and energy overseas or closer to home, spending hours and personal resources to help fight illnesses.

If you are suffering from uncontrolled diabetes, you might want to find out if you also have sleep apnea before upping your insulin, says Mercy Health Physician Dr. Shyamsunder Subramanian, a pulmonary, critical care and sleep specialist and medical director of Mercy Health – Western Hills Sleep Center. In a research review published in the “World Journal of Diabetes,” Subramanian found that many people with diabetes – up to 40 percent – also have sleep apnea but

they just don’t know it. Sleep apnea causes the windpipe to narrow significantly or even close during sleep. Sufferers can experience up to 300 narrowing or closing events during each rest period. In response to the choking sensation, the body releases the stress hormones adrenaline and cortisone, which startle the sleeper into breathing. Together, these hormones trigger the formation and release of glucose in the body. As a result, diabetics may find they have high fasting blood sugars when they measure their glucose first thing in the morning. Because these patients appear to have uncontrolled diabetes, there’s a strong likelihood that their physicians will increase their dosage of insulin, which can bring on new health concerns. “Diabetic patients with undiagnosed sleep apnea who treat ‘uncontrolled diabetes’ with an increased insulin dose might be having more in-
tense therapy than they need. They could actually veer into hypoglycemia, or low blood sugar, by overcompensating for a morning measure impacted by sleep apnea,” Subramanian said. “We need to screen these patients for sleep apnea because by treating the apnea, we can dramatically improve patients’ glucose control. They may require less insulin or go from insulin injections to pills or even cut down on the number of pills they take to control their diabetes.” If you have uncontrolled diabetes together with symptoms of sleep apnea, which include daytime fatigue, waking up tired, disturbed sleep, loud snoring or unexplained weight gain, ask your physician if a sleep study is right for you.

OCTOBER 9, 2013 • DELHI-PRICE HILL PRESS • B7
Community partners strive to reduce falls by older adults Jean Shirley of Bridgetown, Jo Graulty of Montgomery and Ruth Meyer of Delhi Township are three older adults in the Tristate region who have much in common with each other and other older Tristate residents. They stay active in their daily lives, they try to exercise regularly and they follow their doctors’ orders to maintain a healthy active lifestyle. They each have also experienced a fall. “My first fall occurred when I lost my balance playing volleyball a while back, and my second fall was after cataract surgery when I was walking and fell off the edge of a sidewalk,” Shirley said. “I didn’t have any major injuries, but I had sore muscles afterward.” Meyer’s falls were a bit more severe. Her first fall occurred when she tripped over her feet while hurrying to the bus stop, which resulted in a broken hip and forced Meyer to have surgery and medical rehab. Two years ago, Meyer fell again, this time by tripping while walking out of the bathroom. “I broke my pelvis in two places when I fell in the bathroom,” Meyer said. Falls by older adults out in the community and in their homes is part of an alarming trend in the Tristate region. Fall-related injuries can occur to people of any age, but for older adults decreased physical motor skills and simple environmental hazards in homes can contribute to the risk of experiencing a fall. These trends are why a number of hospitals, trauma centers, community organizations and public service providers have rallied together with the Greater Cincinnati Health Council to highlight Fall Prevention Awareness Week during the week of September 22. Dr. Bryce Robinson is the assistant trauma medical director at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center and sees firsthand the severity of falls. “When people think of traumatic injury, they often think of car crashes or gunshot wounds,” Robinson said. “But in terms of sheer volume of injuries, falls make up the number one mechanism of injury seen at our medical center and in our region, our state and our nation.” The Tristate Trauma Registry tracks falls across the Tristate region and 2012 data shows that 48 percent of all trauma related injuries were caused by a fall. Among all fall-related injuries, 53 percent of falls were experienced by persons age 65 and older. Often first responders from local fire departments and emergency medical service personnel are the first rescue folks on the scene when a person suffers a fall. Tom Dietz, district chief of EMS at the Green Township Fire & EMS Department, estimates that his township
goes on 30 “lift assist” runs per month, an average of one per day. A lift assist occurs when a person falls in the community and needs medical help from first responders to get back on their feet. “Our most frequent lift assist calls are people falling in their homes, particularly falling out of chairs and falling out of bed,” Dietz said. Data from the Tristate Trauma Registry shows that 66 percent of all falls occur within the home. Some medications may have side effects that can slightly impair physical abilities in older adults. Other older adults may have vision issues due to poor lighting in their home, items on the floor or other environmental factors in their homes that can contribute to a fall. Dietz and his team make an effort to view the living conditions some older adults who have fallen live in, and they see similar types of environmental hazards in homes. “Many of these falls in the home are due from trip hazards or slip hazards,” Dietz said. “They may have a few extra items out on the floor in the house, or they might have a favorite rug in the living room that caused them to slip and fall.” For some older adults, falls can result in serious injuries and a risk of death. The Tristate Trauma Registry said that 3 percent of all falls in 2012 were fatal, and a majority of falls occur from a standing height. “A simple fall from standing height can be an absolutely devastating injury that could lead to death in this very fragile population,” Robinson said. Dietz sees similar patterns. “We have responded to calls where patients have fallen down their steps,” he said. “Some older adults will be carrying laundry up and down steps, and they will fall down an entire flight of stairs.” Severe fall victims will oftentimes be transported to one of four Tristate trauma centers in the region, which are hospitals specially equipped to provide comprehensive emergency medical services to patients suffering traumatic injuries. These hospitals include UC Health - University of Cincinnati Medical Center, which is the region’s only level I trauma center, and three level III trauma centers located at TriHealth’s Bethesda North Hospital, Atrium Medical Center and UC Health – West Chester Hospital. “If an elderly person has a significant fall, our paramedics here in Green Township will take them to University of Cincinnati Medical Center,” Dietz said. “Patients may want to be transported to a closer community hospital, but severe fall patients need to be transported to a trauma center for the most appropriate level of care.” Other community organizations offer home modification programs.
One such program is Whole Home, which is a unique home modification service of People Working Cooperatively. Whole Home offers oneon-one education, in home assessments and community collaboration, all of which is part of their three-tiered approach to reduce the number of falls in older adults. They can provide modification and improvements to homes by installing items such as motion-activated lights, grab bars in bathrooms
and handrails on all stairways. “Throughout the year, we plan on providing fall prevention education to 50 senior centers, community centers and other gatherings,” said Ron Henlein, director of corporate and community partnerships at People Working Cooperatively. “We are a community organization available to provide home assessments for older adults, and we can provide home modifications where needed to help our
aging population reduce the risk of falling.” For Jean Shirley, Jo Graulty and Ruth Meyer, a variety of fall prevention tools are now in place. Graulty fell out of her bed several years ago while sleeping but has since installed bed rails to prevent future falls out of bed. She has noted that the facility she lives in has grab bars in her restroom and handrails in hallways to help prevent falling, and she has learned that staying ac-
tive in Pilates helps improve her balance. Both Shirley and Meyer have also added home modifications to help prevent falling again. Shirley has added night lights, grab bars and rails on her stairways, and Meyer has fitted her bathroom with an extra grab bar and a secure bath mat. Both also strive to exercise and stay active to help maintain balance and prevent falling once again.
