Veterans Day, like most holidays, is a bittersweet time for Jack and Jo Ann Pohlkamp. The Delhi Township couple lost their Navy pilot son, Michael, in 1992 when he was killed in a mid-air collision. He was a 1981 Elder High School graduate who went to the University of Missouri on a swimming scholarship. A helicopter pilot, Michael served in both Desert Shield and Operating Desert Storm, logging 230 combat hours and earning two combat medals. He was in a T-34 training plane when the collision happened over Pensacola, Fla. The plane, his father said, was not equipped with a sensor to alert of nearby aircraft. “It wasn’t supposed to happen,” Jo Ann said. “But, he always told me his faith sustained him and he’d dreamed of flying for the Navy.” To honor his life and all the wonderful memories the family keeps close to their hearts, Michael’s parents, twin brother, Mark, youngest brother Matt, and his sisters, Sheila and Shauna, created a garden in the Pohlkamp’s backyard. A waterfall trickles into a small pond surrounded by flowers and special ornaments. “It’s a place to bring your soul for a visit,” Jo Ann said. “Mark really devoted a lot of his time to improving the existing pond and rebuilding the creek and, I think, it really helped him work through the grief of losing his brother.” Only a parent who has suffered the loss of

“My heart melts a bit on Veterans Day just like it does on all holidays when the family is all here, expect for Michael.” For more about your community, visit

Students take national math challenge By Heidi Fallon

If 48 students in three grades devote two days and 30 hours to solving math problems, what will be the result? The answer is placing third in the nation in the American Math Challenge. Students at Delhi Middle School spent two days last week taking the challenge online. “It’s kind of nerve-racking,” Alex Schulz, a seventh-grader,

said while punching in numbers on his calculator. “It’s kind of fun, too.” Delhi Middle School math teachers Chad Cornelius and Jim Barr said some of the students volunteered and some were recruited to take the challenge. “It’s the first time we’ve done this,” Cornelius said, while keeping a close eye on the continuing tally of scores for the estimated 150,000 students taking the challenge. Barr said students huddled in the school library to take the tests, using the computers the school provided, calculators, paper and pencil. They spent two school days online and until 11 p.m. at home on the computer. The challenge, Cornelius said, poses math problems for different grade levels. Some were 60-second rapid fire quizzes. Others were more complicated involving ratios, medians and function. Students racked up points for right answers as Cornelius and Barr kept the running tally of scores nationwide.

Brianna Frondorf, an eighthgrader, said she opted to take the challenge because it sounded like

fun and she thought it would help hone her math skills. Classmate Stacy Allen echoed Frondorf’s deductive reasons, but added that getting out off regular classes for two days wasn’t bad either.

Watch where you park your boats & campers By Heidi Fallon

Recent complaints have prompted Delhi Township officials to remind residents of the do’s and don’ts of storing boats and recreational vehicles. “A lot of people just aren’t aware of our zoning restrictions,” said Thomas Stahlheber, township developmental services director. “With the change in seasons, people are bringing their boats and campers home, unaware of the parking ordinance.” Residents have 48 hours within a seven-

day period to have those types of vehicles in driveways or front and side yards. Residents are required to seek approval from the township for that temporary parking. “Otherwise, they have to be in storage, in garages or the rear yard,” Stahlheber Stahlhebe said. Once a complaint has been received or a violation spotted, Stahlheber said the resident is notified, either in person or in a letter.

“People are usually very cooperative and tell us they just didn’t know they were violating zoning codes,” he said. Stahlheber said if the issue isn’t resolved, the resident will receive a formal order to move the offending vehicle. Residents can take their case to the township’s zoning appeal board. “If there still is no resolution, residents will be cited to the Hamilton County Housing Court,” Stahlheber said. Stahlheber said violators risk a $105-a-day fine for non-compliance. For more information, call Stahlheber at 922-2705.

Denise Driehaus wins re-election By Kurt Backscheider

State Rep. Denise Driehaus (D-31st District) is returning to Columbus to continue representing the West Side. The incumbent Driehaus defeated her Republican challenger, Mike Robison, to hold onto her seat and begin her second, two-year term in the Ohio House of Representatives. According to unofficial results from the Hamilton County Board of Elections, Driehaus received 11,993 votes to Robison’s 9,887 votes, which is about 55 percent to 45 percent. “I’m proud to continue representing the district,” Driehaus said. “I’m pleased people recognized the hard work



we’ve put in and the hard work that is still ahead of us.” Robison, a Westwood resident, ran on a platform of lowering taxes, reducing government regulations and cutting red tape. He said he thanks all those who supported him during his campaign, and congratulated Driehaus on her victory. “I hope that she will work with Republicans and Democrats alike to get people back to work and get Ohio back on track,” Robison said. “On the campaign trail I spoke with countless individuals who are struggling to make ends meet. It’s time to quit playing politics and put people first.” Driehaus, of West Price Hill, said her first priority in

Columbus is passing a foreclosure prevention bill she helped sponsor. The bill has been passed by the House and is still in the State Senate. She said she hopes the bill is passed by the end of the year. Investing in jobs and education are her two other main priorities, she said. With a reduced state budget, Driehaus said it’s crucial to find ways to create new jobs and invest wisely in initiatives to bring more jobs to Ohio. “That’s going to be our task in the very near future,” she said. Driehaus said she is proud of the race she ran to win re-election. Her son, Andrew Childers, a recent graduate of the Ohio State University who majored in political science, served as her campaign’s field representative. She said she knocked on about 9,000 doors in the district, met many constituents while attending numerous community council meetings and didn’t disparage her opponent. “I feel really good about having run a grassroots campaign,” she said. “I’m truly grateful for the support.”

Elder students form school honor guard By Kurt Backscheider

A group of Elder High School students have come together to mark a first in the long, rich history of the school. This year 10 students have signed up to be members of the school’s first ever Elder High School Honor Guard. The group presents the colors at sporting events and other special school functions. Their first presentation of the colors – an American flag, an Ohio flag and an Elder flag – took place prior to the playing of the national anthem when Elder hosted La Salle High School in football on Friday, Oct. 29.

“I wanted to be a part of starting a new tradition,” said junior Jacob Holton, of Green Township. “It’s never been done before here at Elder.” Price Hill resident John Handorf, whose son, Joshua, is a junior at Elder and a member of the Honor Guard, was the inspiration behind forming the group and serves as its coach/adviser. “I wanted to do something to give back to the school,” John Handorf said. “It gives the kids another opportunity to participate in something positive at Elder, and it’s a great way to show your patriotism.” Junior Ben Brauch, of Sayler Park, said the patriotic aspect of the group is what sparked his interest in joining. “This country gives us so much,” he said. “I thought it would be a way to pay back and show my respect.” Mr. Handorf, who is retired from the U.S. Army and served in his unit’s honor guard, said the group meets a couple of times each week to practice the steps and go over the process involved in the ceremony of presenting the colors as well as casing the colors.

He said five students – two riflemen and three flag men – present the colors, and five students ceremonially case the colors after the presentation, giving everyone involved the opportunity to participate. “Everyone has a responsibility,” he said. “And we’re going to mix it around each time so everyone gets on the field to present the colors.” Now that football season is over, the group is preparing for basketball season. They will also present the colors at a service the school is hosting for Veterans Day, and plan to march in the annual Price Hill Thanksgiving Day Parade. Junior Chris Applegate, of Price Hill, said he joined the honor guard because he wants the experience for when he joins the military. “My dream is to go into the Army,” he said. Freshman Matthew Listermann, of Green Township, said his father inspired him to join the group. “My dad does the honor guard for his police department,” he said. “I wanted to do what he does.” The students are conducting fundraisers throughout the year to pay for the equipment needed to perform their duties, and they hope to raise enough money to purchase authentic honor guard uniforms. The other five students who serve in the Elder Honor Guard are Tim Broxterman, Cameron Kelley, Holden Kelley, Nolan Seithel and Alex Sunderman.

West Side club marks 70th anniversary By Kurt Backscheider

Latest wall, benches add to Delhi veterans ceremonies By Heidi Fallon

As they’d hoped, members of the Delhi Township Veterans Association watched as the sixth wall and two benches were installed in time for Veterans Day ceremonies. The latest black granite wall is engraved with 153 names, said Jeff Lefler, association president. He and Don Osterfeld, association commander, watched as workers form Schott Monument installed both the wall and benches at the Veteran Memorial Park on Neeb Road adjacent

township offices. The wall has space for 424 names. To nominated a name, go to the association website at “The total cost of the latest wall and benches is about $15,000,” Lefler said. “It’s our gift to the people of Delhi Township and to all veterans.” The association relies on private donations to fund its Wall of Fame installations and, now, the two new benches. Those benches, each with an inscribed message, flank the original stone memorial built by the Delhi Civic Association in 1973.

Bud Kneflin said his close friends and the AXE Club have always been there during the most momentous times of his life. As one of the its founding members, the close-knit club has been a part of the 87year-old Delhi Township man’s life since he was a teenager. “If I follow the history of my life it parallels the history of the club,” Kneflin said. “It parallels my own growing up.” Kneflin and 12 of his buddies first met as the AXE Club on March 14, 1940. He said he and his friends formed a basketball team to compete in a holiday tournament at the old St. Bonaventure School in December 1939. “We won the tournament and we received a trophy,” he said. “We didn’t know what to do so we formed the club.” He said the name of the club represents the schools that the members of the team attended. One guy went to the now defunct Automotive High School, one went to St. Xavier High School and the rest, including Kneflin, went to Elder High School. The club met every other Monday evening at mem-

bers’ homes. Kneflin said dues were set at 10 cents per meeting with the stipulation that an additional fee of 15 cents was to be charged at the first two meetings in order to “give the club a substantial financial backing.” At the club’s first meeting, he said members organized a ticket raffle, with a grand prize of $5, to help defray the cost of satin club jackets. Kneflin said the club met regularly until 1942, at which time many of the members went off to serve in World War II. The club resumed in early 1946 after the war came to an end. Though it was founded around a sports theme, he said as members matured and realized there were interesting attractions besides sports, the club came to full fruition in regard to its social schedule. He said hay rides were held, joint dances were offered with high school sororities, scavenger hunts were the vogue of the day and picnics were planned. As the men married and began having children, Kneflin said social activities evolved yet again. They had family picnics, father’s nights, parties, golf outings and square dances. The membership limit of the club was increased from 20 to 55, and over the years it was opened to include more

than St. Xavier and Elder graduates. Members also came from schools like Roger Bacon and Western Hills. Kneflin is the only surviving founding member of the AXE Club. He said he’s enjoyed seeing the general growing up of the club over the years. “I have a lot of memories of activities with the club, especially those with all the kids,” he said. “It’s just been a very important part of my life.” The club still meets to this day, and many of the members, most of whom are West Siders, are the sons and relatives of those early club members. Elder graduate Jack Kahny said he joined about 15 years ago. “It’s just a great group of

guys who get together and enjoy each other’s company,” he said. “The camaraderie is the main aspect.” Kahny, who now lives in Whitewater Township, said he enjoys the rounds of golf that club members gather for every Friday from April through September, and the close friendships he’s made with the other members. AXE Club members are celebrating the 70th anniversary of the club at a special dinner on Saturday, Nov. 13, at Miamiview Golf Club in Miamitown. Kneflin said he looks forward to seeing everyone and celebrating the milestone. “When we started the club, I had no idea that 70 years later the club would still be in existence,” he said.

Elder students continue trek for others By Kurt Backscheider

Elder High School students took to the streets throughout the West Side once again for the school’s 37th annual Walk for Others fundraiser. Students donned their purple attire and set out on a 12-mile trek through Price Hill, Green Town-

ship, Cheviot and Westwood on Monday, Oct. 18. Trina Schapker-Niemer, Elder’s annual fund director, said students set out to raise $68,000, and they surpassed their goal by raising more than $73,000. She said 75 percent of the funds raised will go toward tuition assistance and the other 25 percent goes to area charities. She

said Project El-Moe, Imago, Our Daily Bread and Miracle League Adapted Baseball are just a few of the organizations the fundraiser supports. Niemer said more than 500 Elder students took part in this year’s walk, each raising at least $80 in order to participate. She said while all faculty members have assignments during the

annual walk, this year 26 faculty members walked or ran the course with the students. Each year the school hosts a Tshirt design contest, allowing students the chance to create a slogan or design for the official Walk T-shirt. Students vote on the designs, and this year’s winner was Ian Gunn and his “My Life is Elder” theme and design.

Mecklenborg wins big in re-election bid By Kurt Backscheider

State Rep. Bob Mecklenborg (R-30th District) said he is thankful for all the support he received in his bid for re-election. T h e Green TownMecklenborg ship resident is headed back to Columbus after defeating his Democratic challenger, Richard Luken, on Luken Election Day, Tuesday, Nov. 2. According to unofficial results from the Hamilton County Board of Elections, Mecklenborg received about 80 percent of the vote while Luken garnered about 20 percent. Mecklenborg received 36,883 votes and Luken received 9,233

votes. “I’m gratified by the support that was given to me, and I look forward to continuing to represent the people of the 30th House District and the state of Ohio,” Mecklenborg said. An attorney, Mecklenborg will enter his third, two-year term. He was appointed to former State Rep. Bill Seitz’ 30th District seat in October 2007, after Seitz became a state senator. He’s been particularly outspoken – criticizing Gov. Ted Strickland openly on the House floor – about the state budget gap and school funding. Strickland lost his reelection bid to Republican John Kasich on Nov. 2. As a member of the House Finance Committee, Mecklenborg played a key role in challenging the Strickland administration on its budget and steady increase in fees. During voting sessions, he’s been known to seek

When Strickland asked legislators to postpone an income tax cut to balance the state budget last fall, Mecklenborg took the Democratic governor to task for breaking campaign promises not to raise taxes. Mecklenborg said the results of the election clearly show the people of Ohio want significant change. “We must roll up our sleeves and get to work to accomplish that,” he said. “I will continue to fight for a more efficient, less bureaucratic government and do everything possible to promote a business climate which supports small businesses, which are the backbone of our community.” Gannett News Service contributed to this story

Panthers CC finishes 7th at state


Player of the week

Mercy High School graduate and current sophomore at University of Mississippi, Amanda Philpot posted her first career triple-double (10K, 44A, 14D) with a career-high in kills and digs to help the Rebels rally for a 3-2 win at Alabama Oct. 24. Philpot was the SEC Offensive Player of the Week for the week of Oct. 24. Philpot more than doubled her kill average and upped her assist and dig average to lead the Rebels to the wins. The win pushed Ole Miss’ current win-streak out to seven consecutive matches and continued the Rebels’ best start in conference play in school history. The 44 assists is the second most in a match this season, coming up four shy of her career-high. The 14 digs bested her previous career-high of 13 set on Oct. 22 at Mississippi State. With the wins, the Rebels swept both Mississippi State and Alabama on the season and remained atop the SEC Western Division standings. Guided the Rebel offense on the weekend as Ole Miss out-hit both opponents. Philpot set at a .636 clip against Mississippi State to help the Rebels to victory on Oct. 22 night with 28 assists on 44 sets.

Oak Hills’ Lacewell performs at state


Elder High School senior Josh Makin led the Panthers to their second straight appearance at the Division I Cross Country State Championships.

The Elder High School cross country team, which finished runner-up to La Salle at districts and regionals, placed seventh at the State Cross Country Championships Nov. 6 at Scioto Downs in Columbus. Elder totaled 196 points, finishing behind Louisville (125), Medina (126), Cleveland St. Ignatius (148), Dublin Coffman (182), Toledo St. Francis De Sales (186) and St. Xavier (188). La Salle (252) finished 12th. In typical Panther protocol, Elder was led by seniors Josh Makin (16:04.3) and Josh Rieskamp (16:08.8), who finished 32nd and 37th, respectively. That duo finished in the top five at districts and in the top eight at regionals. Senior Corey Zielinski (16:13.3) finished 50th at state, while junior Nathan Lauck (16:18.8) followed at 59th.

Oak Hills High School senior Cody Lacewell performed at the Division I State Cross Country Championships Nov. 6 at Scioto Downs Race Track in Columbus. Lacewell finished 58th overall in a time of 16:18.6. Lacewell, a first-team all-league performer, advanced to state after finishing seventh at the regional meet, which was Oct. 30 at Troy, in a time of 16:05.4. He was sectional and GMC runner-up to three-time state champion Zach Wills of Mason. Aside from the state meet, Juniors Jake Clark (17:09.6), Luke Schafer (17:28.6) and Joey Kelly (17:56.7) finished outside the top 120. Mason senior Zach Wills (15:19.8) finished first overall, winning his third straight state title. Elder, which finished 10th at state in 2009, won seven meets this season. The Panthers were first of 21 teams at the Finish Timing Invitational, first of

Lacewell finished in the top seven in ever race he ran this year. “The best thing about Cody is that he isn’t afraid to work for what he wants,” Oak Hills head coach Joe Zeinner said. “Coming into the season, we told him for this team and for him to have success, we would need him to give us single digits every race. Not once did he ever lose focus. As a coach, I can’t explain how great it is to see someone work for what they want and achieve success.” 28 at Lebanon, first of 29 at Galion, first of 17 at Troy, first of 15 at Fairmont, first of 14 at Father Rudy, and, perhaps most important, first at the Greater Catholic League Championship Oct. 16 at Rapid Run Park. Makin was GCL Runner of the Year for the second straight season. Rieskamp and Zielinski earned first-team honors, while Lauck made second team.

PAC Player of the week

The Presidents’ Athletic Conference honored Thomas More College junior punt returner/kick returner Kendall Owens, a La Salle High School graduate, as the PAC Football Special Teams Player of the Week.

St. Xavier takes rematch against La Salle By Tony Meale

St. Xavier 30, La Salle 14

After losing a fourthquarter lead in a 27-24 loss to La Salle in Week 7, the Bombers took their Kingof-the-Road rivals out of the game early, jumping on top 21-0. St. Xavier junior tailback Conor Hundley ran 32 times for 150 yards and four touchdowns, three of which were from a yard out. La Salle senior quarterback Drew Kummer, who this year led the GCL in passing yards and broke the single-season school record for touchdown passes, got the Lancers on the board with a 6-yard pass to senior Brett Wiebell. La Salle trailed 21-6 at halftime. St. X added a 29yard field goal by Sean Duggan to make it 24-6, and Hundley notched his fourth touchdown of the night to give the Bombers a 30-6 lead in the fourth quarter. Kummer had a 10-yard touchdown pass to junior

running back Antonio Nelson to cap the scoring. St. X reached the 30point barrier for the third time this season, as the Lancers defensive woes continued. Through six weeks, La Salle allowed 21 points or fewer in every game, had two shutouts and yielded 7.8 points per contest. Over the Lancers’ final five games, however, they allowed 21 points or more every game and allowed an average of 26.6 points. La Salle went eight games without allowing 30 points but allowed 30 or more in each of its last three. The Bombers controlled the line of the scrimmage for much of the night. St. X entered the game averaging 208 rushing yards per game in wins and just 95 in losses. St. Xavier head coach Steve Specht had lost his last two games at La Salle – both by three points. He has never lost to the same team twice in one season. The 2010 Lancers


St. Xavier junior tailback Conor Hundley carried 32 times for 150 yards and four touchdowns in a 30-14 playoff win over La Salle Nov. 6. The Bombers led 21-0 in the second quarter, avenging a 27-24 loss to the Lancers in Week 7. St. X advances to the regional semifinals to take on unbeaten Colerain.

became the first team in school history to start a season 9-0. Their 10-game winning streak dating back to last season was also the best in school history. La Salle, however, fell 31-28 in overtime at Elder Oct. 29 and was denied its first-ever outright league title. The Lancers instead shared the honors with Moeller. St. X, meanwhile, finished the regular season 54 after playing its typically challenging schedule. The Bombers started the season winning three of four before losing three of four. They won their regularseason finale, 19-9 against St. Ignatius. St. X (6-4, 1-2) advances to the regional semifinals to face Colerain (11-0, 7-0) Nov. 13. The Cardinals advanced after beating Hamilton 42-14. This marks the sixth straight year Colerain and St. Xavier will play each other. Specht is 4-2 with two shutouts against Colerain. The Bombers won the last showdown 16-0 in Week 1 of the 2009 season.

Impressive run comes to close for Mercy By Tony Meale

The Mother of Mercy High School volleyball team hit bottom. After a 3-0 start, the Bobcats staggered in September, losing four straight and six of eight to fall to 56 – including 1-4 in the GGCL – halfway through the regular season. Things were looking bleak. But that’s when the Bobcats caught fire, winning three straight and seven of eight – including four league matches – to improve to 127 (5-4). “We just started working together a bit more, and patience in our systems really paid off,” Mercy head coach Denise Harvey said. “We started to believe in ourselves a bit, and that translated into consistent play.” The Bobcats finished the regular season 13-9 before winning playoff matches against Princeton, Anderson and Piqua – all of the 3-0 variety. But in the Division I Regional Semifinals Nov. 4, Mercy ran into Ursuline, which has put together one of the finest three-year stretches in Ohio high school volleyball history. The Bobcats fell 3-0 (259, 25-16, 25-11). Ursuline has now won 55 consecutive matches and 83 of its last 84 (entering the regional final against Lakota West Nov. 6). The Lions’ last regular-season loss was in 2007. Harvey didn’t hesitate in identifying the difference in the match. “Experience,” she said. “To have five or six or more seniors in your starting rotation, it makes a big difference. I felt we prepared as best we could, but (Ursuline

has) been t h e r e before.” M e r c y finishes the season 1610 (5-5). The BobDinkelacker cats were led by juniors Lindsey Dinkelacker (MB), a firstteam all-league performer, and Marissa Prinzbach (S), who nabbed second-team honors. “They were consistent,” Harvey said. “They kept that edge and competitive spirit very high for us each and every match.” Harvey also credited junior Jessica Hinkel (OH), saying, “She just plays front row and attacks. She did a great job.” Senior Megan Wanstrath (RS) and junior Morgan Redrow (DS) were honorable-mention all-league. Mercy graduates seniors Allie Hart, Leah Smith, Madeline Armstrong, Melissa Farmer and Megan Jones. Potential returnees include junior Anna Maffey, sophomores Katie Cosker and Abigail Dinkelacker and freshmen Katie Klusman and Emily Wagner. Harvey said she wishes Ursuline and Mount Notre Dame, both of which advanced to the finals in their respective regions, the best of luck the rest of the way. “We want to show people how strong Cincinnati volleyball is, especially in the GGCL,” Harvey said. “And ultimately, you want to say you lost to the team that won state, but sometimes that’s still a tough pill to swallow.” A GGCL-Scarlet team has played in the state final every year since 1997 and has won 10 of the last 12 titles. Mercy last won state in 2007.

La Salle High School senior Ethan Bokeno led the Lancers to an appearance in the Division I Cross Country State Championships for the third straight year. Bokeno finished runner-up at regionals to Mason senior Zach Wills.

The La Salle High School cross country team, which had been rated No. 1 in the state and won district and regional titles, had realistic hopes of winning its third state title in six years. Instead, the Lancers, running without injured senior and regional runnerup Ethan Bokeno, finished 12th at the Division I Cross Country State Championships Nov. 6 at Scioto Downs in Columbus. La Salle tallied 252 points. Louisville (125) won the team state title, followed by Medina (126) and Cleveland St. Ignatius (148). St. Xavier (188) and Elder (196) finished sixth and seventh, respectively.

For the 23rd time in 24 years, the St. Xavier High School cross country team performed at the state meet. “It’s very humbling to look at the number of teams that have made it to state,” St. X head coach Mike Dehring said. “It’s very gratifying the program has sustained itself over that long of a period. A lot of work from a lot of guys have gone into that.” This year was no exception. Buoyed by a balanced senior class, the Bombers finished second at districts (placing three in the top five and four in the top nine) and fourth at regionals (placing five in the top 30). St. X performed at the Division I State Cross Country Championships Nov. 6 at Scioto Downs Race Track in Columbus. The Bombers, which tallied 188 points, finished sixth behind Louisville (125), Medina (126), Cleveland St. Ignatius (148), Dublin Coffman (182) and Toledo St. Francis De Sales (186). Dehring said his squad was aiming for a top-five finish but added anything in the top eight was accept-

Dehring credited Butler’s leadership in races and practices throughout the season, saying, “He does a lot behind the scenes and really cares for the guys on the team.” Senior Greg Sanders of Anderson (16:10.8) finished 45th; Sanders, another first-team all-league performer, ran on St. X’s state runner-up team in 2009. Sophomore Jake Grabowski of Anderson


Senior Travis Hawes, performing at state for the fourth straight year, finished 20th overall in a time of 15:54.8 to lead La Salle. Senior Alex Thiery (16:12.0) followed at 48th, while junior Drew Michel (16:26.4) placed 74th. Junior Matt Schroeck (17:00.4) and senior Kevin Kluesener (17:00.5) finished 115th and 116th, respectively, while junior Marc Nie (17:09.7) was 123rd and senior Matt Nie (17:27.1) was 134th. La Salle advanced to state after winning their fifth regional title since 2001. The Lancers placed five in the top 11 at districts, including Hawes and Bokeno, who finished first and second, respectively. Bokeno and Hawes fin-

ished second and ninth, respectively, at regionals, as the Lancers had five in the top 22. La Salle won several meets this year, including the Midwest Catholic Invitational at Carroll Sept. 25 and the Les Eisenhart Invitational at Thomas Worthington Oct. 9. The Lancers also finished second of 51 teams at the Louisville Trinity Invitational Sept. 18 and at the GCL Championship Oct. 16 at Rapid Run Park. La Salle finished 16th at state in 2009 and 15th in 2008 after winning backto-back state titles in 2005 and 2006. The Lancers have six top-two finishes at state since 2000, including a string of runner-up finishes from 2000 to 2002.

Ehrman finished 124th overall. Bolubasz, Flannigan and Grabowski were secondteam all-league performers for St. X, which finished third at the GCL Championships this year. St. X, rated behind Elder and La Salle all season, finished ahead of both at state. Elder (196) was seventh, while La Salle (252), running without injured senior and regional runner-up Ethan Bokeno, was 12th. “One of the things that is typical of our guys,” Dehring said, “is they are very cerebral, very coachable and very hard-working.”

Last week’s question

What message would you like to send our veterans in honor of Veterans Day on Thursday, Nov. 11? “Thank you so much for putting your lives on the line to fight for our freedom. It is truly appreciated!” C.F. “That all we have in the way of freedom is because of their service and sacrifice.” B.N. “Thank you and God bless you, that you were there to step up to the challenges of defending this great nation. It is the sacrifices that you made, putting your country’s honor above all, that make we as Americans, proud!” C.A.S. “Thank you to all the veterans for their service to our country. We can never repay you enough for your sacrifice; our country is indebted to you and your families for what you did, defending and protecting our freedom and our way of life. May we all do a better job of appreciating our veterans and what they mean for to our country. Without them, we wouldn’t be the great nation that we are today.” C.J.G. “Would like to say a sincere THANKS. If a veteran cannot go to a Veterans Day celebration at one of our many wonderful memorials, I will be there for you.” M.M. “Thank you for the time you gave being away from your families and risking you life so that we as Americans could all remain free.” L.S. “I want to SHOUT THANK YOU … to all our veterans.

Here at Elder, ‘It’s a Purple Thing’ To the students and alumni of Elder High School, Elder isn’t just about chemistry, calculus, and history, but about pride. Pride to wear purple on Fridays even after you graduate. Pride that when you pass people wearing an Elder shirt in college you ask, “What year did you graduate?” and spend an hour talking about teachers and Elder football games. Pride to go to an Elder game and see your old friends from high school that you haven’t seen since graduation. It’s all about pride in tradition that your school holds high. This was evident in the recent 31-28 Elder win over La Salle. I am a recent graduate of Elder, so I know the great games in its recent history: 2002 and 2003 state championship wins, the 2007 win over 108-0 Charlotte Independence, the 2008 playoff run that included beating Colerain to win the region and making the state championship, the 2009 playoff run, and the “West Side Goes Worldwide” game vs. Colerain in the Pit on ESPN. After watching clips from different Elder games, one clip that hurt was a clip from the 2007 loss to La Salle that knocked us off the national standings. I decided that I wanted to go. I also had a feeling: We were going to win.

But that’s the Elder way. Proving that when people count you down and out, you can come back and win because that’s what pride Robbie in your school Kessler and yourself is. I spent some Community time Friday Press guest explaining to columnist friends of mine at Xavier University who are from the area about how I thought Elder would win. They all called me crazy for thinking it. All except Elder grads. Elder graduates understand that the Pit has a certain atmosphere and add Senior Night in, and La Salle will have some trouble. There is something special about Elder athletes and the “Twelfth Man” that not many people understand: “It’s a Purple Thing.” The players prove themselves on the field because they have too much pride in the tradition of Elder. They all make sure that they earn the right to say yes to the question in the locker room in front of pictures of all the past Elder football teams, “Are You Elder Football?” Robbie Kessler is a 2010 graduate of Elder High School





LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Robison says thanks

I just wanted to take a moment to thank all of you who supported my campaign this year. As a firsttime candidate we made great strides. The 31st District as it currently exists was drawn to be held by a Democrat. Republicans have lost by 31, 39, 35 and 37 percent. This year we mounted an aggressive campaign, coming up 9 percent short. I am very proud of our effort, and am confident our mes-

sage of lower taxes, less spending, limited government and West-side values was received by thousands throughout our community. Robison I congratulate Rep. Denise Driehaus on her victory. I hope that she will work with Republicans and Democrats alike to get


people back to work and get Ohio back on track. On the campaign trail I spoke with countless individuals who are struggling to make ends meet. It’s time to quit playing politics and put the people first. Thank you again to all who volunteered, contributed, encouraged, prayed for and voted for our campaign. We made a difference, and gave people a choice. Mike Robison Westwood

Election of 1912 was controversial The presidential election of 1912 was as controversial as the recent midterm election, but they didn’t have to listen to television commercials. In the election of 1908, following the tradition of presidents not seeking a third term, President Theodore Roosevelt had declined to run for re-election. He supported his Secretary of War William Howard Taft to become his successor. Taft defeated Democrat William Jennings Bryan in the general election. During Taft’s administration, a rift grew between Roosevelt and Taft as they both became leaders of the Republican Party. Taft’s view of the presidency was different from Roosevelt. His background as a judge shaped his view that the president’s power came from the Constitution, and his job was to establish a legal basis for the reforms that Roosevelt started. He did not believe in increasing the Federal government’s influence into people’s lives. He exercised little leadership over Congress, and at critical times he was tormented by indecision. That indecision permitted escalating squabbles in his cabinet. During the first two years of his administration he battled with members of his party over tariffs. Roosevelt also wanted to lower the tariff on goods, but realized it would pit producers, manufacturers and farmers against department stores and consumers, so he dropped the issue.

Taft only cared about the letter of the law and persisted regardless of consequence. Taft never attacked business or businessmen in his Betty Kamuf speeches; he just Community l a u n c h e d lawsuits Press guest antitrust against them. Of columnist the 80 antitrust lawsuits filed, the most notorious was against U.S. Steel. The corporation controlled half of all steel production and nearly 80 percent of iron ore reserves in the country. Roosevelt condemned the lawsuit saying suing all the trusts was hopeless and if successful would put business back to the middle of the 18th century. That lawsuit lost Taft the support of antitrust reformers, big business, and of Roosevelt. Roosevelt was so outraged by Taft that he wanted to be nominated for president in 1912, but the Republican Party nominated Taft. Roosevelt struck back dividing the Republican Party. He called his own convention and created the Progressive Party nicknamed the Bull Moose Party. The Democratic Party also had its problems. Woodrow Wilson was nominated on the 46th ballot of a contentious convention, only because he was supported by William Jennings Bryant. The elec-

tion, like the recent one, was an important discussion about the country’s future. The election turned into a two-way race between Roosevelt and Wilson with Taft running a distant third. Feeling the pressure, Taft broke with precedent and became the first president to actively campaign on his own behalf while in office. Roosevelt and Wilson presented their views of progressivism. Roosevelt’s New Nationalism called for a government with strong regulatory powers. Wilson’s New Freedom policy was antimonopoly and in favor of small businesses. While campaigning in a Chicago hotel, a gunman shot Theodore Roosevelt in the chest. The Secret Service arrested the shooter and Roosevelt went inside to give his speech. The audience gasped as he pulled out his speech from his breast pocket with a bullet hole through it. After speaking an hour he went to the hospital for treatment. In the end, Republicans split their vote between Roosevelt and Taft allowing Wilson to gain the presidency with a 42 percent plurality. The Bull Moose Party was the most important third party to appear on the American political landscape in the 20th century.

Folks flock to Delhi Twp. fire open house By Heidi Fallon

Residents got to put out simulated fires, learn how to use a fire extinguisher and see the latest equipment as they wandered through the Delhi Township Fire Department’s open house Oct. 17. “We thought it would be fun

for the boys and us, too,” said Karen Beach, who posed her young sons on a fire truck bumper for a photo. “They’re really having a good time.” Firefighters also gave folks a chance to ask questions during an open forum. Fire Chief Bill Zoz said this year’s annual open house was

specifically scheduled not to conflict with a Bengals game. “We were hoping for a really good turn out and I think we’re getting it,” Zoz said, while watching families stream into the Neeb Road fire station. “We want residents to see their fire department and meet their firefighters and just enjoy the afternoon.”

What love wants to do if we let it live with us Once puberty arrives love quietly starts to become an enticing aspect of life. Early on we collect posters of our favorite celebrity, buy their songs, and even discover a girlfriend or boyfriend we blush to tell others about. We feel exciting urges in our bodies, begin to date, and eventually dream of the day we’ll marry. Love is equated with sexuality and seen as a Happy-Maker. Not until much, much later do we find out what love really is. Some of us never find out. One of life’s best opportunities to teach us about real love is marriage. That’s because when we get married, love itself comes to live with us. In “The Mystery of Marriage,” author Mike Mason says, “That thing we have been chasing ever since we were old enough to believe (however naively) that it must or could be sought, has taken off its clothes and stretched

itself out on our own bed and announced that it is here to stay. “Suddenly … that which was unapproachable becomes that which cannot be Father Lou gotten rid of. Guntzelman What was most glamorous and Perspectives exciting seems to insist, now, on being the most ordinary thing in the world.” Marriage presents us with a very important question. It’s a question similar to the query about the dog chasing the car: What happens if he catches it? Now the question for us is: What do we do with love – or permit love to do to us – once we think we have finally caught it? For those unacquainted with

love’s ways, marriage can eventually come to be seen as a trap or an imprisonment. Certainly, in our youth, we always hoped love would come and live with us. But we imagined its chief task would be to make us happy and fulfill all our romantic fantasies ever after. Yet – sooner or later – the love that lives with us begins to seem erratic, unpredictable, less exciting or even disappointing. We begin to quietly wonder if this really is love who came to live with us, or is it an impostor. Many spouses are actually surprised to find out what love can be like underneath its charming exterior. Of course, love knows more about reality than we do. And the younger or less formed we are, the less we suspect love’s actual agenda. Even if it tried to tell us, it would sound too mysterious or

preposterous. Thankfully, Joseph Campbell put it into words for us: “I think one of the problems of marriage is that people don’t realize what it is. They think it’s a long love affair and it isn’t. “Marriage has nothing to do with being happy. It has to do with being transformed, and when the transformation is realized it is a magnificent experience. “But you have to submit. You have to yield. You have to give. You just can’t dictate.” Happiness is never a permanent state. Remember, happiness is commonly compared to a beautiful butterfly that can’t be caught, but occasionally alights on our shoulder. Happiness is elusive, our transformation increasingly becomes permanent. It is all about our enlargement and growth as a person. Yet, to be honest, enlarge-

ment generally comes only through suffering. But if we’re willing and working accomplices, transformation brings with it increased consciousness and wisdom. These invariably arise out of conflict and the tension of opposites. In marriage, love has quite a job. It has two sets of consciousness and unconsciousness with which to work, two egos and two hearts, and two lives to raise up to human heights and fulfilled potential. Maybe the dog doesn’t know what to do with the car it catches up to, but love knows what it wants to do with the two lives with whom it lives.

Be cautious when buying rehabbed homes With extremely low interest rates and a glut of homes on the market, this is a great time to buy. But, you need to beware of homes put on the market through foreclosure. Some have been rehabbed before being put back up for sale and, unless you’re careful, you could be buying a big headache. Erin Bohannon-Chenault learned rehabbed homes can come with lots of problems. She and her husband thought they were getting a good deal on a house in Fairfield. “All we know is it was a rehab and they had fixed it up. From what we knew everything was new. They said they had put in new appliances, new water heater – that’s what they had told us,” she said. At first glance everything looked great, but then they hired a home inspector. “There was a big problem

with the wiring and the electricity. It was going to be dangerous if they didn’t it,” she Howard Ain fix said. AnothHey Howard! er problem was the gas line in the fireplace. “They were supposed to yank it out or at least shut it off. We found out they didn’t do that because we had a gas leak,” she said. As a result, several family members were sick for days. Another gas leak was also discovered at the newly installed water tank. Despite having a home inspection, BohannonChenault discovered she couldn’t use their new washing machine because the plumbing in the house was bad.

“One of the drains is actually broken even though the property disclosure form says everything is fine,” she said. Bohannon-Chenault said she’s learned she cannot rely on the homeowner disclosure form. The form also said there was no water leakage in the basement but a close inspection revealed not only had a leak been repaired but there were other leaks that had not been fixed. “Here I thought this was our dream house. We’re a young couple and it’s just been a nightmare since we moved in,” BohannonChenault says. She’s now looking for an attorney to see if she can get out of the purchase because she says there are so many undisclosed problems. Repairs to the house will run into the tens of thousands of dollars. As I see it, part of the problem was all the people she hired to protect her had


an interest in her buying the house. The home inspector had been recommended by her real estate agent. That’s a conflict of interest because the inspector may believe he or she has to give the home good reviews in order to keep getting recommended by the real estate agent. If you see water leaking through the basement walls you need to hire a profes-

Ahoy, sea foam candy recipes are on the horizon and when I put the baking soda in the cooked mixture, it foamed up and I was in awe of the way it looked. That little candy making experiment gave me a lifelong curiosity of food

When I was little, one of the first candies I attempted to make on my own was called “sea foam candy.” I know it contained vinegar, sugar and baking soda, among other ingredients,

chemistry. The candy was a beige color and when I broke it up, it did look sort of foamy in the middle. So when Elena Dye asked for a sea foam candy, I thought it was that one, but was wrong. Elena described a different kind of candy altogether, almost like a divinity/praline type candy that you see in the South. Well, I have the best readers and the recipes came pouring in! I’m sharing two, and there’s more in our online version (along with memorable stories) from Sharon Cummins, an Anderson Township reader; Karol Kennedy’s mom, (who colored hers with a drop of green food coloring); Pat Perry Cornell, whose recipe is from an older Southern cookbook; and Janice Wallace, a longtime Northern Kentucky reader. I haven’t tried these yet myself, but plan to.

Ellen Meece’s sea foam candy for Christmas

Ellen, a Madeira reader, said she has been making this for 50 years and her daughter, Sherry, always reminds her to be sure to make it.

2 egg whites, room temperature ( l a r g e eggs) 2 cups l i g h t b r o w n Rita s u g a r , 1 Heikenfeld packed ⁄2 cup Rita’s kitchen granulated sugar 1 ⁄3 cup white corn syrup 1 ⁄2 cup water 1 ⁄2 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon vanilla 1 ⁄2 cup broken walnut or pecan kernels Put egg whites into a large mixing bowl. Put all other ingredients (except vanilla and nuts) into a 3-quart saucepan, stir thoroughly and place on medium heat. Boil to hardball stage (256 degrees) do not stir, but with a pastry brush dipped into cold water frequently wipe sugar crystals down sides of saucepan. Just wipe the sides of the pan, do not add more water to syrup. Remove from heat to cool, while beating egg whites until stiff, then slowly add syrup, beating in thoroughly. Continue beating at

slower rhythm, until past sticky stage and candy begins to get creamy and hold shape. At this point, add nuts and vanilla, stirring to blend. Quickly drop in mounds on waxed paper using teaspoon. Ellen’s tip: Do not undercook syrup. Also, be sure candy reaches creamy stage. (The candy will lose its shiny texture). One must work quickly when spooning the candy into mounds.

Jean Allen Kroger Food Foundation sea foam candy

Diane Jeynes sent this recipe in from her late cousin, Dorothy. “It’s a favorite from Dorothy, who worked for the Kroger Food Foundation a number of years ago,” Diane said.

Yield: 3 dozen pieces

1 cup dark brown sugar 1 cup granulated sugar 3 ⁄4 cup water 3 tablespoons corn syrup 2 egg whites, stiffly beaten 1 teaspoon vanilla 1 cup chopped nuts

(walnuts or pecans are excellent) Put sugars and water into saucepan, stir until well dissolved, add syrup and cook to 252 degrees, or hardball stage. Put slowly over beaten whites. Beat until mixture is light and fluffy and piles up without spreading. Add vanilla and nuts. Drop by spoonful on waxed paper.

Tip from Rita’s kitchen

Hardball stage is between 250 degrees to 265/266 degrees. Mixture will form a hard ball when dropped into cold water. If you take it the ball out, it won’t flatten. It will still be hard, but can be squashed a bit.

"Honor Our Veterans"

Let us on Veteran's Day take time to pause and reflect and pray. Let us, as a nation, pause to honor thoseVeterans - living and dead - men and women who have served in the United States Armed Service in time of war. They served it well. Many gave up their lives for their country and for the freedoms we enjoy. Let us pray for those who have shed so many tears for those who gave so freely of their lives. On this Veteran's Day let, also, honor those who have lived to make those freedoms meaningful by post-war service to the disabled comrades, to their neighbors, to their community, to their states and to their nation. Let us onVeteran's Day, as Americans, stand up and be counted. Let us stand and honor this nation and what it stands for...Let us be thankful of all the privileges and advantages we enjoy...Let us count our blessings. ABOVE ALL, let us on this day reaffirm our dedication to the cause of peace with honor Marilyn Holt throughout the world...
