Oak Hills asks again for school levy By Kurt Backscheider

PRICE HILL — St. Lawrence School eighth-grader Ben Hornback said it’s been great hosting a visitor from Palestine. “Having Miss Abeer here is like having a walking social studies book,” Hornback said. The “Miss Abeer” to whom he referred is Abeer Bannoura, an English teacher at the Latin Patriarchate School in Beit Sahour, Palestine. The Palestinian teacher was in town from Oct. 1-11 visiting St. Lawrence eighth-grade teacher Judy Maly. The two teachers met three years ago when Maly traveled to Palestine with the Holy Land Outreach Promoting Education (HOPE) program. Maly said the program is a

collaboration between teachers in the Archdiocese of Cincinnati and teachers in the Latin Patriarchate schools in Palestine, Jordan and Israel. “The purpose of HOPE is to foster partnerships so that students and teachers in both the United States and Middle East will share their faith, educational practices and resources,” Maly said. She and Bannoura kept in touch after meeting in Palestine in 2010, and Maly visited her again in 2012. “After I came back home from my first visit we thought about how we could continue to communicate and have our students interact with one another,” Maly said. “We both want the best for our students and want our students to learn from each other.”

The teachers began emailing class prayer intentions to one another, which then led to a pen pal program between the two classrooms. With today’s technology, the students now Skype with each other in class. Bannoura, who teaches English to students in fifth- through eighth-grade, said the classes Skype with each other three or four times a year. “We’ve discovered the students are all the same, they think the same,” she said. The students ask each other questions about their countries and pray together. They pray the rosary, and the Palestinian students recite the Hail Mary in Arabic, the St. Lawrence students in English. “It has turned out to be a realSee VISITOR, Page A8

Voters in the Oak Hills Local School District are being asked to consider approving an operating levy. The district seeks a 4.82- Schoonover mill, five-year operating levy on the Nov. 5 ballot – the same levy district residents voted down this past May. “It is important for voters Yohey to approve this levy request to allow Oak Hills to continue offering the quality pre-K-12 education that our entire community expects,” Oak Hills Superintendent Todd Yohey said. “In addition, passage of the levy will help maintain home values and contribute to the quality of our entire community.” He said the five-year levy would generate about $5.3 million annually for the district. It would cost a homeowner an extra $14 per month in taxes per $100,000 of market value. Oak Hills School Board President Jeannie Schoonover said the levy is crucial to the district. “It’s obvious that if the levy doesn’t pass there will be consequences to the academics offered to our students,” she said. “We have to pass this levy.”

The district cut its budget by $3.6 million after the May levy failed, and will need to cut another $5.8 million for fiscal years 2015 and 2016 if the fall levy is defeated. Yohey said the cuts that have been recommended to the school board include 19 teaching positions at Oak Hills High School, 25 teaching positions in the middle schools, 2.5 gifted teachers, one administrator, a psychologist assistant and five custodians. Added up, it’s a total of 53.5 teachers and staff. The classes affected would include math, English, social studies, science, business, art and design, music, fitness education, German and Spanish. The cuts would also result in larger class sizes at all schools; reduced time and resources for intervention; the middle schools would return to the traditional junior high model with a six-period day and fewer electives; the high school would move from seven periods a day to six periods; and many elective classes will be dropped from the schedule. “Instruction, learning and opportunities for kids will look much different in Oak Hills schools, and not for the better,” Yohey said.

College of Mount St. Joseph to become a university DELHI TWP. — The College of Mount St. Joseph will have a new name beginning next summer. The college’s board of trustees announced Oct. 9 the school will officially become Mount St. Joseph University effective July 1, 2014. The designation change to a university positions the Mount to leverage its expanding academic offerings including increasing its number of graduate programs for masters and doctorate degrees, as well as implementing online programs. “In the name of the Sisters of Charity of Cincinnati, I congratulate the Mount as it becomes Mount St. Joseph University,” said Sister Joan Cook, Sister of Charity and president

of the Sisters of Charity of Cincinnati. “I pray that our patron, St. Joseph, will continue to guide all the members of Aretz the Mount community as they embark on this new venture while continuing the tradition of excellence in education.” Ken Stecher, chairman of the Mount’s board of trustees, said the cornerstone upon which the school has been built will remain the same. “As it has for the past 93 years, the Mount will remain a sponsored ministry of the Sisters of Charity and with that, will continue its mission of providing a high quality liberal

arts education with professional programs distinguished by personal attention, small classes and a close community. The move to become a university reflects on the bold initiatives the Mount has included in our Vision2020 strategic plan,” he said. Vision2020 identifies three major areas the Mount will focus on to ensure the university is recognized as a top value: excellent, relevant academics, an engaging student experience and students recognized as career ready. Throughout the strategic visioning and planning process, with input from all audiences within the Mount community, it became clear that the need to move the Mount forward should be symbolized with a

name change. “Vision2020 gives us a focus and measurable goals,” said Mount President Tony Aretz, Ph.D. “The goals are significant milestones in our efforts to become more competitive as we look to enhance students’ opportunities to learn and grow by adding and expanding academic programs, attracting top faculty and reaching out to serve a more diverse student population.” This academic school year marks the beginning of the Mount’s newly revised core curriculum with a focus on serving the common good. The innovative theme-based curriculum offers a variety of service, work and experiential learning opportunities including the launch of the Talent Op-

The Mount will offer a FAQ section on its website,, for alumni, current and prospective students, parents, faculty and staff to ask questions.

responsible management of funds, including managing a transfer of 3.69 mills of inside millage in 2007, the district has been able to keep a tax levy off the ballot for 16 years prior to this past May, he said. “There are few school districts in Ohio who can claim that many years between levy issues,” he said. “As a district, we never want to run a levy. How awesome would that be? Unfortunately, it is a reality of school funding in Ohio.” Schoonover, who’s in her fourth year serving on the board, said the state has reduced funding to public schools every year she’s been on the board. Despite decreased state funding, she said Oak Hills has been able to provide quality education while also maintaining the third lowest per pupil expenditures in Hamilton County. “But it’s reached a point where we have no alternative other than asking voters for additional revenue,” she said. “We have to have additional money or we’ll have to make cuts, and unfortunately those cuts will impact our educational components and offerings.”

Community Press readers have raised some questions for the Oak Hills Local School District regarding its levy request. Oak Hills Superintendent Todd Yohey answers those questions in the following Q&A. Q: The district is saying it hasn’t sought additional revenue in 16 years, but in January 2007 the district transferred 3.69 mills of inside millage. Was that not a tax increase? A: “The millage transfer in 2007 most definitely increased property taxes. However, inside millage transfers cannot be voted on and are limited (in terms of how the funds can be spent). Prior to May of this year, the last time that Oak Hills placed a levy issue on the ballot was 1997. So in 16 years, the only property tax increase for schools in Oak Hills was 3.69 mills. That transfer, along with responsible fiscal management allowed the district to stay off of the ballot for another seven years.” Q: The district has purchased property on Ebenezer and Lawrence roads in recent years; why has the district spent money on property if it needs money? A: “Property purchases are possible using dollars from the district’s permanent improvement fund. The permanent improvement fund was established utilizing the millage transfer in 2007 and allows the district to fund capital improvements, maintenance of buildings, school bus purchases, technology purchases, acquisition of property, and a few other expenses that are no longer in the operating budget. As promised in the millage transfer and establishment of this fund, these dollars can only be used for those identified expenditures. They cannot be used for operating expenses. The November levy is to increase revenue for the operating expenses.” “Properties beside Oak Hills High School on Ebenezer Road and one property on Lawrence Road have been purchased by the district so that the school does not become landlocked. These properties will allow the district to expand the high school if ever needed, including parking, entrances and exits and additional facility space. The district currently leases the homes located on these properties as a source of revenue.” Q: There has been talk of a proposal to build a new swimming pool at Oak Hills High School. Will funds from the levy go toward the pool project? A: “No. The funds generated from the November levy will not be used to build a new swimming pool at Oak Hills High School.”

Westwood Coalition makes recommendations for revitalization By Kurt Backscheider

WESTWOOD — A group of residents and business owners are making progress on possible future improvements of the neighborhood’s historic business district. Based on input gathered at several public meetings, the Westwood Coalition has composed a report and recommendations to the community on how to go about revitalizing the Harrison Avenue corridor, from Kling Avenue to the Cheviot border. The coalition, which was formed this past spring, is comprised of representatives from the Westwood Civic Association, Westwood Community Urban Redevelopment Corp. (WestCURC), Westwood Works, Westwood Historical Society, business owners and residents. Mary Jenkins, a Westwood resident who serves as facilitator of the coalition, said the group’s goal was to collect input from the community on how to improve pedestrian traffic, safety and business opportunity in the historic business district. “This is about Westwood coming together and saying very clearly what we want to happen,” she said. The coalition has met nine times and hosted two community meetings. In late September, she said the group developed a report and set of recommendations for community organizations to examine.

The three recommendations are to adopt Cincinnati’s Form-Based Code for the historic business district and work with the city’s planning department to refine the application of the code to fit Westwood’s character and interests; work with the community to develop more specific proposals for the revitalization of the business district; and lead a community dialogue focused on economic factors and retail development in the district. “The coalition reached full consensus around these recommendations because we felt they were clearly drawn from the public input we received,” Jenkins said. Joe Henke, who owns Henke Winery and is a member of the coalition, said he looks forward to revitalizing the business district and attracting new businesses, restaurants and consumers to the neighborhood. “It’s a wonderful thing to have happen here in Westwood, and it’s long overdue,” he said. “I think it’s really nice to see all the community organizations working together.” The task of redeveloping the business district will not be easy, but Henke said it will be worthwhile and transform the neighborhood. Jenkins said the four community organizations represented on the coalition are presenting the recommendations to their members for consideration, and each organization will relay its support,

or lack thereof, for the recommendations by Oct. 24. After the coalition receives word back from the community groups, she said it will submit the recommendations to Cincinnati officials or, if needed, revise the recommendations. Westwood Works and WestCURC have already reviewed the recommendations and endorsed them, Jenkins said. She looks forward to hearing back from the other two neighborhood groups and meeting at the end of the month with the coalition to review the responses and plan the next steps in the process, she said. Westwood residents are encouraged to read the coalition’s report and recommendations at Feedback may be emailed to revitalizewestwood

The Westwood Coalition, a group of comprised of business owners, residents and members of four community organizations, has developed recommendations for revitalizing the neighborhood business district along Harrison Avenue. One recommendation is adopting the city’s Form-Based Code, an alternative to conventional zoning that focuses on the form of buildings rather than the land use. KURT BACKSCHEIDER/THE COMMUNITY PRESS

Mount earns Military Friendly honor Twenty-seven-year-old Chris Howland served one tour in Iraq and three in Germany as a specialist in the U.S. Army before deciding to further his education. “The Army gave me the opportunity to go to college,” he said. “I knew I had to use this opportunity while I had it.” Howland, of Western Hills, is now a junior studying criminology and psychology at the College of Mount St. Joseph. The Mount was recently named a “Military Friendly” school by

G.I. Jobs, a national military magazine. The annual survey looks for colleges that recruit and retain students with military experience and offer scholarships, veterans’ clubs and other opportunities. “The Mount is extremely veteran friendly,” Howland said. “I transferred to the Mount because I wanted smaller class sizes and more personal attention from my professors. That’s what really drew me to the Mount.” The Mount offers several op-

portunities for veterans to become active within the college. Veterans in Communities is one of these groups that offers veterans and non-veterans an opportunity to join and help support veterans at the college and in the community. VIC hosts events such as the Boot Drive which collects proceeds to donate to charities, such as the Delhi Veterans Association. VIC also offers benefits to veterans at the Mount and the community, such as arranging for health screenings and free flu

shots. “One of the Mount’s primary values is leadership and those who have served our country are noble examples of the excellent students we are proud to have on campus,” said Tony Aretz, president of the Mount and a retired Air Force lieutenant colonel. The Mount will hold its first Challenge Coin ceremony in October, giving out tokens to Mount alumni who served in the military. In addition, VIC will form a team to run a 5K for the

Disabled Veterans Association at Yeatman’s Cove in November. “It’s no wonder the Mount is ranked among the top 20 percent of schools for being military friendly,” Howland said. “It’s very evident they care about veterans.” The College of Mount St. Joseph is an undergraduate and graduate Catholic college that provides an interdisciplinary liberal arts and professional curriculum emphasizing values, service and social responsibility.

Elder High School graduate Tyler Nieberding has been selected to be a McDonough Scholar at Marietta College. The nMcDonough Leadership Program helps students gain a deeper understanding of leadership, practice their leadership skills and, in the process grow as engaged leaders on campus, in the local community and beyond. Students must be accepted into the program through a highly selective process. While a part of the program, Nieberding will take leadership classes and participate in different community service projects, including the awardwinning Make a Difference Day in October. He also will have the chance to travel as part of the McDonough Leadership Study Abroad, pursue a variety of experiential activities and attend prestigious leadership conferences. Nieberding came to campus the week before classes began to participate in the EXCEL (Experience Civic Engagement and Leadership) Workshop, designed to introduce students to the McDonough Leadership Development Model.

When Springmyer Elementary was evacuated for a monthly fire drill Sept. 11, teachers and students were greeted by members of the Green Township Fire & EMS Department with coolers of popsicles. Principal Alyssa Adkins kicked off 2013-2014 with the building-wide theme of Growing Smarter Brains. Without air conditioning and temperatures registering in the mid 90s, Adkins knew her students needed replenishment. So she called in the troops. “It’s important for our students to recognize the heroes next door,” she said. “This was a great opportunity to not only reward them for their perseverance through the stifling weather conditions, but also to say thank you to the men and women who keep us safe!” Adkins remarked that the only challenge ahead is helping the youngest, newest members of Springmyer understand that there aren’t popsicles and heroes after every fire drill.

Eight candidates running for Oak Hills school board By Kurt Backscheider

Oak Hills Local School District residents have a large field of candidates to consider for the board of education. Eight candidates are vying for three available seats on the board. Board president Jeannie Schoonover and vice president Rick Ahlers are seeking re-election to the fouryear term. Board member Ritsa Tassopoulos is not seeking re-election. The six other district residents running for seats are Scott Bischoff, George Brunemann, Nicole Hensley, Julie Murphy, Gerry Trennepohl and Tim Wilking.

Rick Ahlers

Ahlers, a Delhi Township resident, is in his eighth year serving on the board. “I still Ahlers have a passion for Oak Hills and I really believe to finish what we’ve been doing for the past eight years we need to get the levy passed, get the district back on a firm financial footing and go forward to keep increasing our options and effort for all the students in the district,” he said, noting he, his wife and their three children are all Oak Hills High School alumni. The most challenging thing facing the district right now is school funding, he said. As a member

of the district’s finance committee since 2004, and member of the school board for the past eight years, Ahlers said he has the knowledge and experience in dealing with the state and its funding formulas, and knows how to make tough budget cuts when needed. He said he wants to continue working to ensure the district is solid financially, and provide administrators and teachers the resources needed to serve the needs of all students. “It’s important we continue to attract great teachers, keep our great teachers and attract the administrators we need to keep this a great district and keep it going forward,” he said.

bring that business savvy to bear as I take a seat on the board.” Bischoff said he’s responsible for human resources, the mutual fund department, operations and budgets at his company – many responsibilities he said would cross over well to a school district. Three of his four children used to attend parochial school, and he said one of the reasons he is running is because he’s seen the positive impact switching his children to the Oak Hills district has had on them. “I feel an obligation to help, and I think the best way that I can do that is to use my business background to make a difference on the board,” Bischoff said.

Scott Bischoff

George Brunemann

A Delhi Township resident, Bischoff and his wife have three children who graduated Bischoff from Oak Hills and one son who is a junior at the high school. He works at Johnson Investment Counsel as a member of the senior executive management team. “The skills that I would bring to the school board I think are very much business skills,” he said. “My 25 years in business bring a certain business savvy and a certain new look at what’s going on in the district. I hope to

of the school, which is to provide a quality education to the students, but also to provide value to the taxpayers who are supporting all of that, so when they pass a levy they know they are getting their value for the money,” Brunemann said. He’s running because he has a grandson attending school in the district, and he said he wants to make sure children today are prepared for the challenges they’ll face in the future. Oak Hills is already beginning to use technology innovation, and he said his skills in business and engineering will come in handy. “I think we can continue that so Oak Hills will not be known just as a great place to get an education, but as the pioneer of using technology to do that,” he said.

Brunemann, an engineer, lives in Nicole Hensley Green A Green Township Township and owns a resident, consulting Hensley is a business. teacher at Brunemann “I’m Mason High known as School, the guy who goes after the where she projects nobody else leads a prothinks can be done,” he Hensley gram for assaid. “I’ve been doing piring technology innovation for teachers called Teacher more than 30 years.” Academy.

spent her career dedicated to education, and it’s something she lives and breathes daily. “I understand the difficult times our teachers and administrators are facing today,” she said. “I feel very strongly that through my experiences I can increase the value of education and improve the district’s performance. I know the inner workings of a school, from the aspects of funding to high stakes curriculum to the new teacher evaluations and more and more bills changing the face of education.” She wants to make sure her daughter and all the students in the district are being considered and not seen as a data figure, especially in these difficult financial times for public schools. “I will work to safeguard all students in the district,” Hensley said.

Julie Murphy

A lifelong Delhi Township resident, Murphy is an Oak Hills High School alumna Murphy who is a small business owner and management consultant and a certified public accountant. “While I don’t have political aspirations, I do have a passion for education,” she said. “From my personal experience, a great education was the golden key to opportunity. My Oak Hills education

changed my life by providing me a path to college, and that’s why I’m running.” She has a son at the high school and wants to ensure a great education is available to every student in the district for years to come, and make Oak Hills the district of choice for the best and brightest teachers. “My primary objective as a board member is providing the leadership necessary for our schools to be high performing teaching and learning environments,” she said. “As well, we need to make every effort to include parents as part of our teaching and learning environments. A student’s chance for success in the classroom is greatly multiplied when parents are part of the program.” Murphy said education is a community investment made by taxpayers, and she’ll work with administrators to operate transparently and be committed to active and open communication with the public about financial management practices, financial needs and the impact the schools have on property values and attracting new businesses to the community. “It’s not enough to be just great financial stewards of our tax dollars, we must also be innovative in looking at new ways to solve for a sound financial system that is at the right cost, funded by the right sources and is sustainable,” she said.

Jeannie Schoonover “It has been a privilege and honor to serve on the Oak Hills board of educaSchoonover tion these last four years,” said Schoonover, Green Township. Her educational journey in the district began more than 40 years ago when she taught fifthgrade at C.O. Harrison Elementary School, she said. She also worked as a counselor at J.F. Dulles Elementary School and as a principal for three different school districts. She’s retired from teaching, but now works as an educational consultant. One of the things that makes Oak Hills great is fact its teachers have a passion for teaching and love for students, she said. “Public education is the cornerstone of our community,” Schoonover said. “Developing that cornerstone is a team effort. I want to continue to share my experience and background in a way that helps Oak Hills maintain an excellent school system.” In her four years on the board, she said she’s provided oversight based on her skills and educational background. “Throughout my career – first as a teacher,

OCTOBER 16, 2013 • DELHI-PRICE HILL PRESS • A7 then as a counselor and then as a principal – my commitment stems from my belief that all students deserve a top-notch education in a safe learning environment,” she said.

Gerry Trennepohl

A Green Township resident, Trennepohl worked in finance and accounting at Procter & Gamble for Trennepohl 35 years before starting his own small business seven years ago. “What I bring to the table is a business background from managing budgets, and the ability to analyze and see where things are going well and where things can improve,” he said. As a grandparent of three children who attend school in the district, he said he wants to see parents and teachers have choices in the education of students. “It’s children first,” Trennepohl said. “Every decision we make on the board has to benefit our children, knowing that not all children learn alike and we need to recognize those differences.” In a world with a changing economic climate and changing technology climate, he said he will make sure teachers and parents have the best resources and options for educating children today. “We have to look at the decisions that we make and say, ‘How does this affect the children?’”

Tim Wilking Wilking is a Green Township resident who works as the chief information officer at St. UrsuWilking la Academy. He served five years in the U.S. Air Force, and has a degree information systems from Northern Kentucky University and an MBA from Thomas More College. He said he and his wife, Jan, who is the district’s former athletic director, have two children attending school in Oak Hills. “I’m running for school board because I believe the public school is the backbone and barometer of any community,” he said. “It’s about citizenship and giving back. I’ve just been overwhelmed by how awesome the teachers, staff and administration are, and, to me, I hope to be that leader and help to support them.” Before accepting the position at St. Ursula, he said he worked in the corporate world and throughout his career he always asked tough questions, challenged the status quo and sought creative methods to reduce costs and operate more efficiently. “With the exception of military, police, doctors, nurses and firefighters, there is really no more noble profession than education,” he said. “ I’m hear to hopefully hope serve in a leadership capacity there.”

ly unique experience four our students,” Maly said. St. Lawrence eighthgrader Shanelle Reuss said she enjoys interacting with the Palestinian students through Skype. “I think it’s really cool we get to talk to people who live on the other side of the world,” she said. “It’s just amazing.” Maria Damico added, “It’s really fun Skyping with all of them. They’re not much different from us.” Bannoura was in town with a delegation of teachers and adminis-

trators from the Latin Patriarchate School and visited several other Catholic schools in the city. She said she gave presentations to students at St. Lawrence about her school, her students and the holy sites in her country. Maly said she hopes her students have learned about religion, geography and politics in the Middle East from Bannoura, as well as tolerance and acceptance. “These kids are our future, and they can carry out into the world what they learn in the classroom how to treat one another with respect,” Maly said.

Radio sports talk becomes issue in Green Twp. race Gannett News Service

Football has a way of bringing people together, but due to FCC regulations, sports talk has become divisive in a Green Township trustee race. Steve Schinkal, an Oak Hills Board of Education member who’s running for trustee, mailed a letter last week to WLW-AM (700) asking for equal time provisions after his opponent and current trustee, Rocky Boiman, appeared several times on the station recently as

a guest host and football color commentator. Schinkal is pursuing equal air time un- Boiman der regulations set by the Federal Communications Commission to ensure equal time for opposing parties or candidates. “It’s my understanding that per FCC regulations I’m entitled to equal air time,” Schinkal said. And he might just get that air time, according to Robert Baker, assistant chief of the FCC’s policy division, who said color sports commentary is still subject to the FCC’s equal time regulations. Boiman, a former NFL football player, said he was unaware of whether

his football commentary and guest appearances on the station were subject to equal time Schinkal regulations, but said he thought the situation was “kind of petty.” Boiman added that radio commentary is somewhat of a part-time job for him, not a way to garner publicity. “Especially since the campaign has been going on, I’ve been very, very careful to not talk politics,” he said. “It’s not like I’m doing this to get myself name recognition.” But the fact that Boiman is talking football and not politics doesn’t matter, Baker said.

“The color commentary is very straightforward ... that would trigger equal time rights for his opponent,” he said. “The subject matter’s irrelevant.” Under FCC regulations, the radio station would have to grant Schinkal air time equal to the amount of time Boiman actually appeared on the radio, Baker said. So if Boiman provided commentary during a three-hour football game, but only spoke for 45 minutes, Schinkal would only get 45 minutes of equal time. If Schinkal does receive equal time provisions from WLW, he said he would hope to use some of that time in the form of ads. That’s something that could be negotiated with the station, Baker said.

Elder football hits its stride at right time By Tom Skeen


PRICE HILL — Things are starting to come together at the right time for the Elder High School football team. Coach Doug Ramsey’s defense is playing well, allowing just 18.6 points per game, and his quarterback is finding his rhythm. Sophomore Peyton Ramsey took over after senior Nick Peters went down with an injury and the coach’s son hasn’t looked back since. The youngster is third in the Greater Catholic League with 804 passing yards and brings the dual threat ability to the field with 241 rushing yards, which ranks him second on the team. Ramsey has appeared in all six games, starting four and winning three of his four starts to guide the Panthers to a 5-1 record. (Elder played Moeller Oct. 11 after deadline.) “… Now he knows what we are trying to do all the time and so that gives him confidence,” the elder Ramsey said of his son. “And he has ability. He’s a good player, so now with being more knowledgeable of the offense and having more practice reps I think that’s why he’s taken off.” Ramsey’s ability to use his feet brings a whole different dynamic to the offense. Much like a fine wine, it’s a dynamic that coach Ramsey believes will only get better with time. “Having a quarterback that can run, you put a lot of pressure on the defense,” the coach said. “… I think if he gets more strength in the weight room that’s going to become an even bigger part of his game.”

What: Elder at Winton Woods football game When: 7:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 18. Where: Winton Woods High School, 1231 W. Kemper Road, Cincinnati, OH 45240 Fun fact: The Panthers and Warriors have met just twice since 2004, with Elder winning both contests. The Panthers won 38-21 at home in 2010 and won again at home in 2012, 28-14.

Elder sophomore quarterback Peyton Ramsey runs the ball in the second quarter of the Panthers’ 23-10 win over St. Xavier Oct. 4 at St. Xavier High School. Ramsey - who has started four games this season - has 804 passing yards, 241 rushing yards and four TDs.JOSEPH FUQUA II/COMMUNITY PRESS

While Ramsey has settled the offense, the defense just keeps trucking along. Outside of a 48-7 loss to Lakewood St. Edward, who is ranked No. 1 in the state at the Division I level, the defense is giving up just 13 points a contest. With senior leaders like defensive back Johnny Lammers, linebacker Kyle Orloff and linemen Dustin Applegate leading the way, Ramsey likes how his guys have tackled, made teams work for their points and most importantly, avoided the mental mistakes. “… If you can tackle and be in the right spot you aren’t going to give up the big plays,” he said. “We’ve made people earn things to this point and I think that’s a big key with things. If you can

make somebody drive seven, eight, nine, 10, 12 plays there is more of a chance of them making a mistake and getting off track.” Lammers has three interceptions on the season, two of them coming in a 23-10 win over GCL rival St. Xavier Oct. 4. “I’ve had a few lucky tips to me and the guys around me are helping me a lot,” he said. “The experience has helped.” Nothing gets easier for the Panthers as they still have Winton Woods, Kentucky powerhouse Highlands and La Salle on the schedule. And while they sit at No. 3 in The Enquirer Division I area coaches’ poll, No. 7 in the Division I Region 2 OHSAA Computer Ratings and are projected to host a playoff game, according to “Shuck Projections” author Steve Shuck, coach Ramsey knows his team can’t worry about anything other than themselves. “We always talk about just being concerned with ourselves,” the coach said. “We can’t think about the people we are playing all the time. It’s about us.”

CINCINNATI — When Mother of Mercy High School and Ursuline Academy met on the volleyball court this year, it was most certainly a family affair. There were moms, dads, aunts, uncles, brothers, sisters and both grandma and grandpa all in attendance to watch Mercy senior Katie Klusman and freshman Chloe Klusman along with Ursuline junior Madison Manger of Loveland. The three Girls’ Greater Catholic League volleyball players are all cousins and for the first time, all three were on the court at the same time battling each other. “It’s fun,” Chloe said of the experience. “Just knowing your family is over there, your parents and grandparents are over there, you ultimately know you are all family.” For the elder Klusman this will be the only year she can share in the family experience, as Madison and Chloe have next year to make more memories. “… I get to kind of mentor Chloe,” Katie said, “show her the ropes, and then getting to play with Madison is always fun.” Madison and the Lions hold the 2-0 advantage over her cousins as Ursuline has won both matchups with the Bobcats this season Sept. 12 and Oct. 7 in straight sets. While many would give their family members some grief for holding the family bragging rights, Manger isn’t that type of person.

“Personally it makes me nervous playing against the family because everyone comes to watch you and it’s like there’s more pressure,” the junior said. “It’s weird playing against them. … You want everyone to be successful and you know someone has to win and to me, it’s just bittersweet.” For the freshman Chloe, she is using this season as an opportunity, not only to make memories that will last a lifetime, but as a learning experience as well. “… It’s always been something to look up at because they are always doing awesome,” she said of Katie and Madison. “Katie has always been the boss, so we can just kind of ask her anything.” While the Bobcats aren’t having their best season in Katie’s four years with the team, she cherishes the two times she took to the court with her cousins. “I just think it’s kind of fun,” she said. “You look at them all and give them a little smile and you know they are kind of feeling the same thing with a little bit of excitement and a little nervous, but it’s fun.” It’s all fun and games at first, but when the action gets going all three girls get down to business. And Madison – a defender – will be the first one to tell you her older cousin has gotten a ball or two by her from her outside hitter position. “… She’s gotten a couple on me, but it’s always my goal to touch (the ball) at least,” Madison said. “But yeah, she’s gotten one on me at least.”

Pictured from left are Mercy senior Katie Klusman, Ursuline junior Madison Manger and Mercy freshman Chloe Klusman. The trio are all cousins and took the court together for the first time ever when the Lions and Bobcats met Sept. 12 and again Oct. 7. The Lions won both contests.TOM SKEEN/COMMUNITY PRESS

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Passing the Oak Hills levy is important to my family for many reasons. » We want to keep Oak Hills’ amazing academic rating. In order to maintain excellence we have to retain all of the talented staff that make the district such a great learning environment. We need to continue to entice the best teachers, administrators, and staff to want to work in Oak Hills Local Schools. Keeping Oak Hills strong brings new families to the district and preserves our community. » We want to maintain Oak Hills tradition. Both of my parents are Oak Hills graduates and my husband and I are Highlander sweethearts. We are all successful products of the Oak Hills school system. » We want a strong community. The strength of the community comes from the strength of the school district and Oak Hills adds value to the houses in Green and Delhi townships. Our home is our biggest investment, and that is important to us. Now is the time to rally behind greatness for our families, children, schools and community to remain Highlander strong! Please vote yes Nov. 5.

The value of your library

Your tax money is already paying for library services. The proposed levy will not increase your taxes. Use the library to the fullest, and get what you’ve paid for. For a $100,000 property value, you’re paying $30.12 per year to the Library. It gives you a lot of value for that low price. The library has books, but not only that. They have eBooks, audio books, book clubs and book recommendations, too. Enjoy magazines? You can read them at the library, or download them to your computer, tablet or smartphone. The library also gives you access to a huge back catalog of magazines. CDs of course, but did you know that you can download five free songs per week from the Library website? Librarians can even send you music recommendations. They’ve got plenty of DVDs, but the library has branched out into online video as well. The library is a great place to do research. Read reviews before buying an appliance, or learn about the car models coming next year. Sometimes you need some space. The library provides space for meetings, or a place to be alone with your thoughts. Use the library and get what your taxes pay for.

The important questions

I read Billie Hick’s letter to the editor Oct. 2 and all I can ask is, “Seriously?” Delhi Township faces a loss of half its revenue through the elimination of the estate tax and the reduction of the local government funds. In the midst of these huge concerns, Billie Hicks poses two of the most inane questions conceivable about the process to re-

place Cheryl Sieve as fiscal officer and about how long ago Will Oswall and his wife moved to Delhi to start their family. Which candidates have college educations? Which candidates have managed large businesses or professional practices? Which candidates have been involved in community groups? Which candidates have the real skills to lead this community and oversee the governance of the township? These questions are immensely more important that the nonsense advanced by the letter writer.

Through a grape-colored pitcher

After reading the reply to my letter to the editor re: Obama and the auto bailout, I realized in order to understand the other side of the story I needed to do something drastic. Off to Kroger I went in search of an extra large box of Kool-Aid. Two days later and I’m seeing things in a different light. Thirty-hour work weeks, high unemployment that can’t be fixed, wealth growing at warp speed for the wealthy and politicians giving themselves generous subsidies to pay for their affordable healthcare. I can’t see the current leadership in Washington doing anything wrong!

Trustee endorses Sieve, Oswall

It has been a privilege serving as your trustee in Delhi Township the past 10 years. I hope we always strive to protect our excellent safety and public services as well as our beautiful parks and gardens. The new members of the board I hope will build on the existing momentum regarding development opportunities within our business community while also working to build better relationships with the various civic, veterans, business, senior and other organizations in our community. Cheryl Sieve is a dedicated natural leader. As Delhi fiscal officer, she deeply understands the difficult financial decisions that must be made regarding our community. I trust her leadership in making decisions for our community. Will Oswall has earned a professional reputation steeped with honesty and integrity. As an attorney, his education, skills, and experience bring a new energy to the board that will allow for better collegiality and a true working together atmosphere for the betterment of our residents and employees. Keeping Delhi safe and a great place to live and raise a family is what will make Sieve and Oswall excellent public servants. Please join me in voting for Cheryl and Will Nov. 5

voters for a new levy. I’m not aware of any other school district in Ohio that has gone 16 years without a levy – and as your state senator, I know a fair amount about the 600-plus school districts in Ohio. Oak Hills has delivered superior results while living within its means for 16 years. Pennies can only be pinched so thinly before they need replacing. Ask any realtor what good schools mean to your property resale values. Lest anyone suspect that my background as a former Cincinnati School Board member prejudices me, I have also served on the St. Antoninus Parish Education Commission and on Sept. 16, the Catholic Conference of Ohio, on behalf of the Catholic bishops, recognized me as one of only 11 Ohio Legislators “for their steadfast support and commitment on behalf of Catholic schools, students and their families.” Good public schools and good private/religious schools have built a better Western Hills community. Let’s keep it that way: vote for Oak Hills Schools.

State Sen. William J. Seitz Green Township

Oswall, Sieve best choice

In response to the Letter to the Editor from Billie J. Hicks in the Oct. 2 Delhi Press: Kevin Rhodes’ campaign slogan is “Let’s Work Together.” But Kevin fought hard against safety service levies and has managed to alienate almost every public service organization and community group in the township. It’s hard to imagine him reaching out to the Sisters of Charity or the College of MSJ. He is well known for his demoralizing attacks on his political adversaries and their families. Delhi needs a uniter not a divider. Don Jasper is a decent fellow, but it baffles me how he can claim to be “a proven leader” when no one seems to know exactly what he has ever led. His Delhi Press guest column claims he has led companies for 15 years, but he falls to identify roles he played and what his professional accomplishments are. Delhi needs leadership with a track record. I urge voters to check into the qualifications of all the candidates. Providing oversight to a township of 30,000 residents, more than 150 employees, and an $18 million budget requires the leadership skills of true professionals. Cheryl Sieve and Will Oswall have my vote.

Too many levy questions

In the Oct. 2 Western Hills Press, Oak Hills Schools Superintendent Todd Yohey wrote that Oak Hills is overdue for a new levy. It’s been 16 years since the district has asked for new revenue. In 2007 Treasurer Johnson chose to take millions of dollars from the inside millage without taxpayer approval. Yohey, justify why the board is asking property owners to pass a levy for $5,275,000 per year for five years in addition to what we are already paying. That is over $25 million. In the May 29 Press, TreaSee LETTERS, Page A12

Delhi Twp. needs new leadership My wife and I moved to Delhi Township in September 2012. We chose to move to Delhi to start our family because we liked the community values associated with Delhi. We are expecting our first child in November, which has Will Oswall COMMUNITY PRESS motivated me to run for GUEST COLUMNIST Delhi Township trustee. I want to do all that I can to make our community a better place to raise our families. Last year I started attending trustee, Civic Association, Republican Club, and Delhi Skirt Game meetings because I was new to the community and wanted to get involved. I immediately observed the political infighting that seemed to overshadow the business and accomplishments of the township. Delhi is in need of a new generation of leaders, and I am ready to step up to the plate. I bring a fresh perspective with no baggage, vindictiveness, or hidden agendas. As an attorney for the past seven years, I have the education, experience, and skills to understand complex concepts and how to implement them. Every day, I work with opposing parties with opposite views. I have the skills to listen, analyze problems, negotiate and compromise to successfully resolve issues. I will use these skills to transparently represent the citizens of Delhi and focus on positive results for the township. As a small business owner, I make tough decisions every day on how to grow my practice but stay within my budget and my means. I know my staff counts on my business as a means to sup-

port their families. I understand the value of hard work, leadership, and fiscal responsibility. The township budget has been cut by 70 percent, and we need to look to alternative ways to meet the needs of the township. Delhi must consider possible collaborative efforts with surrounding townships and cities to cut costs and combine resources. Exploring collaborative arrangements with surrounding governments will ultimately strengthen our departments at no additional costs to the tax payers. Additionally, we need to bolster our volunteers in our police, fire and parks departments. In Delhi, we have the Delhi Citizens Police Association and the Community Emergency Response Team. By strengthening these programs, we can make our community safer with no cost to the tax payers. Delhi must focus on economic development. Rather than creating more government or task forces, we must empower the private sector to create jobs to stimulate the local economy. As trustee, I will work with local business owners to understand their needs and help them attract and cultivate relationships that will showcase business development opportunities within Delhi Township. I will also build upon the Township’s relationship with Mount St. Joe so we can grow together. Along with Cheryl Sieve, I have been endorsed by the Republican Party. I promise to work with Republicans, Democrats, and Independents. I promise to be visible, accessible, and open. With your support on Nov.5, we can keep our community safe and prosperous. It’s time to focus forward. Will Oswall is a candidate for Delhi Township trustee.

Safety, stewardship top priorities More than 40 years ago, I began my education career teaching fifth-grade students in room 50 at C.O. Harrison Elementary School. Many of my former students now have their own grandchildren in the Oak Hills Schools. I am as passionate about education now as I was as a new teacher, which is why I Jeannie am Schoonover COMMUNITY PRESS running for a GUEST COLUMNIST second term on the Oak Hills Board of Education. Throughout my career – first as a teacher, then as a counselor at Dulles Elementary and as a principal in three different school districts – my commitment to education stemmed from my belief that all students deserve a top-notch education in a safe learning environment. After I retired, I worked as a school improvement coach working with schools that were deemed failing. I worked with teachers and principals to find alternative ways to deliver instruction to help struggling students. In each

role, it was imperative to build a core team of parents, teachers, and administrators to create a positive outcome for students and schools. I believe that public education is the cornerstone of our community. Developing that strong cornerstone is a team effort; the rewards are many. I am proud to be a lifelong resident of Oak Hills and its rich history of academic excellence while providing for high quality music and theater productions, competitive athletic programs and many other meaningful activities to enrich students’ experiences. We must continue to provide a top-quality education for all students, while keeping spending low. It is foremost that we make wise decisions for using our funding in the most effective manner. Oak Hills must be transparent in all operations to build positive school and community relations and reach out to parents, staff and taxpayers to involve them in our decision making. Quite simply, we must be a good neighbor to our parochial friends, businesses and families. There are many new instructional mandates being imposed at the

state level. My background as an educator has prepared me to understand and to navigate through them. Recently, Oak Hills has made building improvements to keep our schools safe; however, student safety must remain a priority. During these past four years, I have asked the tough questions and have challenged the district on expenditures. I will continue to be a good steward of your tax dollars. The Oak Hills School District is a great place to live and raise families. It is important for us to work together to educate the next generation to maintain our quality of life. My goal is for us to continue to hire the best teachers available, provide the resources needed for children to learn and to create doorways for parents to be more involved. I look forward to working on the Oak Hills Board of Education to make decisions that are best for all students. I am grateful to be a part of an excellent school district and I ask for your vote Nov. 5. Jeannie Schoonover is running for re-election to the Oak Hills Board of Education.

Schoonover keeps district’s best interests in mind

I have served as an Oak Hills School Board member for the past four years. As a school board member, I know the district faces many obstacles – between budget cuts, working with a new curriculum and meeting the needs of all students in the district. Regardless of the outcome of the levy, we must keep a watchful eye on spending. I chose not to seek re-election, but I strongly encourage you to vote for Jeannie Schoonover. As a retired principal, counselor and teacher, she has devoted her career to education. She isn’t afraid to tackle the tough issues. She has fought to cut spending and doesn’t back down from asking

We spent many hours together as board members, and I know Schoonover is inspired by schoolchildren, teachers and families in the Oak Hills community. She is committed to the district and it’s evident by the amount of time and energy she puts into making it a great place to learn. My sincerest “thank you” to those who supported me when I ran for the board. We need to continue having an experienced educator on school board. Voters should re-elect Jeannie Schoonover Nov. 5.

District asking for too much

Here are a few reasons the Oak Hills school levy should fail in November. The district says it has not asked for a levy in 14 years. This is not true. It used the taxation without representation method and let the state collect increases through a maintenance tax which has increased six times since 1993. Homeowners have lost up to 26 percent of home value, yet taxes have gone up because Hamilton County commissioners have duped property owners on stadium deals, plus depending on where they build 35 Section 8 units, those areas will lose another 10 to 20 percent of their value, adding to the tax burden on the district. The Homestead Act has been taken away, so people who are soon to be living on Social Security and pensions who make more than $30,000 a year will not get a tax break at 65. Green Township has a police and fire levy. Hamilton County has libraries and zoo levies.

surgery before Medicare kicked in I would probably be fighting off bankruptcy right now. The lousy insurance for exorbitant price would not have covered half of the huge bills that were incurred. “I just wish that Obamacare (ACA) was available sooner. From what I can tell for the same price I had been laying out for 10 years I could have afforded a much more comprehensive policy and slept better at night.”


Oct. 2 question The House 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 certainly would not feel as safe as if the Delta Queen had met federal standards. I have mixed thoughts about those who do choose to stay on the boat overnight. They have the right to take an informed risk, but I wonder what they would consider to be the government’s responsibility in the unfortunate event that something terrible did happen.”


How many tax dollars are there in a household budget? If you can afford swimming pools and their maintenance, you have way too much money. This is a middle class school district, not Indian Hill or Amberley Village.

Levy good for entire community

Moving to the Westside of Cincinnati 18 years ago was like coming home. In the community in northwestern Ohio where I was raised the people work hard, there are a lot of Germans and almost everyone is Catholic. It’s a lot like here. The difference between here and there, however, is that the people where I come from support both the Catholic and public school systems. I guess that’s why I have such a hard time understanding why some families of parochial students do not support the upcoming Oak Hills Levy. My father dedicated his life to the Catholic schools as a teacher and administrator. He firmly believed that a Catholic education was not only the right education for a student, but he also believed it was the best education available. Despite those core beliefs my father would have never voted against a public school levy. We’re put on this earth to help each other” he would say. “Not everyone can attend a Catholic school so what better way to help our community than to help everyone get the best education possible?” Whatsoever you do... Vote yes for your community. Vote yes for the Oak Hills Levy.

Foursome plays golf in all 50 states By Kurt Backscheider

GREEN TWP. — Greg Bowen tells people he’s lost a golf ball in every state of the country. “One time I hit a ball in Missouri and lost it in Oklahoma,” he said. Slicing a ball into the woods or sinking one in a water hazard might upset some golfers, but it didn’t bother Bowen, a North Bend resident. He mishit his golf balls while completing a golfer’s ultimate bucket list with his wife, Nancy, and their friends, Green Township residents Tom and Patty Benken. The West Side foursome recently accomplished their goal of playing golf in all 50 states. They began their quest in 2003 and completed it in late July when they golfed in Alaska, the least golfed state in the nation. Over the past 10 years, they logged more than 50,000 miles of travel. “The Bowens were the ones who originally had the idea to play golf in all 50 states,” Tom Benken said. Patty Benken added, “We were all getting together regularly on Fridays to play golf, and they told us their idea one evening after a round. We said, ‘Well, can we play with you?’” Mr. Benken said they drove to the northeast for their first trip and planned to play in New York, New Hampshire, Vermont and Maine. Along the

way, while driving up Interstate 90 through Pennsylvania, they decided to pull off the highway and play a quick nine holes in the Keystone state. They all decided nine holes constituted a round, so they crossed five states off the list during that first trip. From there on out, Mr. Benken said they played 18 holes in 45 of the 50 states. They only played

nine holes in five states due to darkness or storms. The couples drove to golf courses in states east of the Mississippi River and flew to the states out west. Many of the states in the eastern part of the country were visited during weekend trips, and their longer western travels were planned to include stops in three or four states at a time.

Fired up in Delhi

“Greg did a lot of the research and found courses online,” Mrs. Bowen said. “We’d usually get our atlas out and look for courses near larger cities within driving distance of a few states.” They made sure to keep the scorecards from every course they played, and they bought golf balls stamped with the course logo at every course as

well. Mrs. Benken said they played a lot of beautiful courses, especially the ones in Hawaii and California, but the consensus favorite was a course in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. “They have the only floating green in the country,” Mr. Benken said. “You have to take a boat back and forth from the green. It’s quite a sight.” They also enjoyed playing a course set amongst the Badlands of North Dakota, and got a kick out of a course in Montana that didn’t open until the owner, a teacher by trade, finished his day at school. Mrs. Bowen said they always made time for sightseeing while on their trips, and it was a great way to see the country. “We had some really neat trips out west especially,” she said. “It was a lot of fun and we travel well together. We did a lot of laughing and made a lot of great memories.” They had hats and T-shirts made to recognize their accomplishment, and Mrs. Benken said they each bought license plate frames for their cars denoting they’ve golfed in all 50 states. Mr. Benken said it was an adventure and they highly recommend it to anyone who has the chance. “We can all die tomorrow, happy,” he said.

Pea salad just like one from Hotel Sinton Today we started our first fire in the wood stove for the season. But it was a little weird, too, because when I looked out the window, the impatiens were a riot of color in the window boxes and the morning glories looked like a burst of blue sky Rita climbing Heikenfeld up the RITA’S KITCHEN white picket fence. The weather had turned quite chilly and it really was a perfect morning to have a nice, aromatic fire. If you ask most folks, they will tell you fall is their favorite time of year. I guess it’s because the outside work is winding down and so are we. And there’s nothing quite so beautiful as a mosaic of reds, browns and yellows as the leaves carpet our old country road.

Hotel Sinton’s spring pea salad

I was glad to get so many responses to Jan B.’s request for the Hotel Sinton pea salad. As always, thanks, thanks, thanks! The recipe from Juliane B., a Colerain township reader, was exactly like the one originally published by Cheri Brinkman in her first book of the best-selling series: “Cincinnati and Soup.” Now that I’ve seen the recipe, I know I’ve eaten it and liked the salad a

the way if you want (you’ll get a smaller yield). Immediately roll bottoms in your choice of toppings. Set on sprayed pan to dry.

Can you help?

Manyet Bakery’s cheesecake: I don’t want to disappoint Pat Barth, who asked again if any of you have the recipe or a similar one from this beloved Newport Bakery. This is the bakery that made the famous radio rolls and for which I found a similar recipe that I still promise to post on my blog. Frisch’s ranch dressing: I’ve had a couple requests for this, so if you have a similar recipe, please share.

Stay tuned!

lot. Juliane said she’s made it several times and people love it. Cheri told me: “This is a rare one as it is a salad dressing, not a true pea salad. It came from an older lady I knew who actually learned to cook in the kitchen of the old Hotel Sinton. What is interesting in this is the amount of mayonnaise in the salad; this may be lessened by the cook if they choose. The most important thing to stress here is that it should be served by tablespoon over

chopped lettuce not as a solo salad – that was not what they did in “the good old days.” Best made ahead. FYI Cheri just published her latest, and best-selling, book “Cincinnati and Soup: Festivals and Frolics.”

Importance of eye exams stressed

As students around Greater Cincinnati head back to school, the Cincinnati Association for the Blind & Visually Impaired (CABVI) and Clovernook Center for the Blind & Visually Impaired – two not-forprofit organizations serving people who have significant vision loss in Cincinnati - are urging families to assess their child’s vision needs. According to the National Parent Teacher Association, vision problems are the fourth most common disability and prevalent handicapping condition during childhood. Even more alarming, more than 60 percent of students with learning problems have undiagnosed vision problems contributing to their difficulties. According to Junior Blind America, more than 12 million children are affected by vision impairment. “Eye exams should be an important part of every family’s back to school routine,” CABVI Executive Director John Mitchell said. “One appointment will check for the warning signs of vision loss and help ensure a healthy, successful new year for your student – and provide peace of mind for you.” Throughout the month, CABVI and Clovernook Center, which

have partnered to make the best use of their combined resources in serving the community, will be providing additional facts and resources on their social media pages. As students start back up with sports, CABVI and Clovernook Center also want to remind parents to ensure that their children use appropriate eyewear to prevent sports-related eye injuries. “Observing Eye Exam Month is an important part of great overall health for your entire family,” Clovernook Center President/CEO Robin Usalis said. “We want to stress the importance of regular pediatric eye exams for all children – not just those with a family history of vision loss.” CABVI and Clovernook Center are nonprofit organizations that seek to empower people who are blind and visually impaired to be selfsufficient and independent. Both organizations work diligently to address the issue that 70 percent of working-age people in the U.S. who are blind or visually impaired are unemployed. More information about CABVI and Clovernook Center can be accessed at: and, respectively.

Group focuses on future of county trees The Land Conservancy of Hamilton County will hold its annual fall meeting at 7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 18, in the historic Town Hall in Miamitown, Ohio Route128 and Main Street in Whitewater Township. The meeting, open to the public, will feature a review of the year’s conservation work, election of board members, and a presentation introducing the “Taking Root” reforestation campaign. For more information, visit or call 513-574-1849. The featured presentation – “We Are Losing Our Trees, Again” – is by Scott Beuerlein, horticulturist with the Cincinnati Zoo. As chairman of the new “Taking Root” reforestation campaign, he will explain how alarming new threats are affecting our trees, and what can be done about it. Beuerlein’s mission is to inspire the community to plant 2 million trees in the eight-county OhioKentucky-Indiana region by 2020. The Land Conservancy supports the “Taking Root” campaign, and joins the broad-based coalition of organizations united to address threats confronting local trees and forests.

sionary local leaders started programs that put Cincinnati at the forefront of the American Forestry movement. Over the next 30 years, more than a million trees were planted in the Tristate area, including reforesting an eroded, 1500acre farm that is now Mt. Airy Forest.

Cincinnati Zoo horticuluralist Scott Beuerlein will speak at the Oct. 18 meeting of the Land Conservancy of Hamilton County.

nonprofit organization that helps families preserve their lands, and works to protect Hamilton County’s land and water resources to benefit the quality of life of all citizens.



New threats emerge

That was more than 100 years ago. “Now our trees and forests are threatened again, this time by the emerald ash borer and other insects, invasive plants, and the effects of development and rising temperatures,” Beuerlein said. “Local trees are under siege, and deforested areas are struggling to regenerate.” The Land Conservancy is a member-supported

Arlington Memorial Gardens to host first ‘Death Café’ Arlington Memorial Gardens will host the first meeting of the Cincinnati Death Café at 7 p.m. Monday, Oct. 21. Founded by Jon Underwood of England, and based upon the writings of Swiss sociologist Bernard Crettaz, Death Café is part of a global movement to challenge and improve attitudes towards death. Lizzy Miles, a social worker in Columbus, was the first to host a Death Café in the United States. The concept is growing, and recently caught the attention of Dan Applegate, president of Arlington Memorial Gardens. “A Death Café is a safe and confidential place for

a small group to talk about about death, and express their views safely without judgment. There is no intention of leading participants to any particular conclusion, product, or course of action,” Applegate said. The Death Cafe meetings are free, and will be in the Arlington Community Room. Coffee and light refreshments will be served. For more information or to register, call 513-5217003 or follow the Cincinnati Death Café on Facebook. For general information on the Death Café movement, visit

Assistance League offers domestic violence assault kits As community awareness is raised during Domestic Violence Awareness Month in October, statistics continue to show that one in every four women will experience domestic violence in her lifetime. Assistance League of Greater Cincinnati’s trauma care program focuses

on victims of assault and domestic violence. Assault Survivor Kits containing hygiene products and new clothing are purchased, packed in bags and distributed to hospital emergency rooms in Southern Ohio and Northern Kentucky to victims of assault and rape. Domestic violence

kits containing new clothing, hygiene products and journals are packed in bags and delivered to women’s shelters in Southern Ohio and Northern Kentucky and distributed to victims of domestic violence. The organization’s New Beginnings program focuses on victims of do-

mestic violence. Essential new household items such as dishes, pots and pans, bedding, small appliances and children’s items are packed and delivered to women’s shelters for distribution to victims of domestic violence who are establishing a household away from their abusers. More than 20,500 women have been helped through these programs. Assistance League of Greater Cincinnati, a nonprofit all-volunteer organization of 90 members with no paid staff, is dedicated to meeting critical needs of children and adults by identifying developing, implementing and funding ongoing community programs. The organization is celebrating 15 years of service to the greater Cincinnati and northern Kentucky region with its trauma care, New Beginnings, college starter kits, college scholarship and Operation School Bell programs. ALGC outreach in Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky regarding domestic violence includes 18 hospitals and six women’s shelters – inclusive of the YWCA. The collaboration and support between these partnerships ensures that the Assistance League of Greater Cincin-

nati is fulfilling gap needs in accordance with our Mission. Want more informa-

Mount awarded nursing grant to increase enrollment One of the academic graduate programs at the College of Mount St. Joseph will soon be able to accept more students, thanks to a two-year grant for nearly $200,000 from the Ohio Board of Nursing’s Nurse Education Grant Program. Recipients of the NEGP use the money to fund partnerships to increase the nurse education program’s enroll-

ment capacity. “This grant will tremendously help the College as well as the nursing profession,” said Darla Vale, director of adult and graduate studies. “We will now be able to offer three cohorts a year of MAGELIN students, which means an additional 48 students will be accepted into the program.” The grant will also al-

low additional clinic placements, clinical instructors and simulation experiences. These are key factors in preparing nursing students for post-graduate success. The MAGELIN program will now offer start dates in January, May and August. For more information about the program or to apply, visit
