Delhi Township youngsters will be getting a special helper to make their Christmas wishes come true this season. For the first time, the township police department and Skirt Game Committee are having a Delhi Shop with a Cop program. Clyde Kober, Skirt Game vice president, said helping township families at the holidays isn’t new. While a lot of people think only of the Skirt Game’s financial assistance after the annual August softball game, Kober said helping is a year-round effort. “Because of the fantastic support of the community over the last 32 years,” he said, “we are able to help people throughout the year. We’ve helped families at Christmas, but this year we are able to formalize the Shop with a Cop.” Police Chief James Howarth said he and his officers are eager to help for several reasons. Mainly, he said, it will give children a positive experience with a police officer. “Too many times, a child’s only interaction with police is a negative one and this is a way to change that. “Secondly, it will be fun and a way to bring joy to a child at Christmas.” Officers will volunteer their time to shop for several hours Dec. 12 and 13 with children selected through a screening process by Skirt Game Committee members. Families will be referred to the committee through the two elementary, two middle schools and two parochial schools in the township. Kober said the group has earmarked $5,000 and is hoping for donations from residents, businesses and other organizations to

Along with the gifts children will be buying, each family will receive a food basket with all the trimmings for a holiday dinner. Police Officer Bill Hunter said he plans on using his off day to participate.

Delhi Township was well represented at the Regional Truck Roadeo recently in Dayton. Public Works foreman Ron Ripperger finished first and Ray Fern finished fourth in the competition which featured the top drivers from multiple jurisdictions throughout southwestern Ohio. More than 50 drivers took part in this regional event designed to test the driving skills of the participants by requiring them to operate their dump trucks, with snow plows attached, on a timed route through a road course containing various obstacles.

“I think it will be a lot of fun and a great way to give a child a positive experience with police,” Hunter said. Anyone wanting more information can go to Donations can be sent to the Delhi Township Police Department with checks made out to the Delhi Skirt Game and mailed to 934 Neeb Road, Cincinnati, OH 45233.

It was a loss that Mary Brigham is thrilled with. Brigham lost by an unofficial 198 votes in her bid for Delhi Township trustee. Incumbent Jerry Luebbers garnered 3,753 votes while fellow incumbent Mike Davis topped the vote tally with 4,615. “Only 198 votes separated me and Jerry and he’s been in politics 40 years and this was my first run for public office,” Brigham said. “I’m thrilled with the vote.” Brigham led the four candidates challenging Luebbers and Davis including Marijane Klug in her first bid for public office and Kevin Rhodes making his fourth attempt for a trustee seat. Klug, who received 2,851 votes – 704 behind Brigham – said she already is planning for her next trustee campaign. “I am not disappointed,” she said. “I got into the race late with limited resources and showed up well in a six-person race.” “I had a lot of support, learned a lot and I will be running again.” While unsuccessful in his fourth try for trustee, Rhodes said he plans on staying active in the township. “I’m not going to sit back,” he said. “I’m interested in what’s going on in Delhi Township and I will remain active.” Rhodes said it was too soon to predict whether he’d make a fifth try. He said he funded his campaign “out of my own pocket and it gets terribly expensive.” Brigham’s slim margin was not lost on Luebbers. “Mike won handily, but I think this is one of those years when we had high quality candidates which helped to draw a lot more people out to vote,” Luebbers said. “The candidates, many of them making their first run for township office, had a lot to

offer and made it a hard decision for voters.” Calling it an “issue-less campaign,” Luebbers said he didn’t feel there was a lot of disagreement on issues leaving it to candidates “to promote themselves with their talents and backgrounds.” Davis said he views his overwhelming win as a vote of confidence from voters “in my ability to continue effectively governing the township the next four years.” While Davis and Luebbers have been at odds on the Delhi Road project, both trustees said they view that issue as one that’s been decided and both said they will move forward. Both said the 2010 township budget is their top priority as they move into new terms of office. “We need to address the budget needs and determine what needs to be trimmed during these difficult economic times,” Davis said. “Township finances set the table for all we do.” Luebbers echoed that view, saying trustees “have to be very careful to protect our precious tax dollars.”

West-side church giving away clothes By Kurt Backscheider

Bob Waugh said during this difficult economy the members of Western Hills Church of Christ want to provide some good news to the people of the community who are struggling financially. The church, 5064 Sidney Road in Covedale, is once again opening its doors and

the members of the congregation are sharing their blessings with those in need. Waugh, the associate minister, said the church is offering a free clothing giveaway from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, Nov. 21. “There are so many people out of work who need food, who need clothes, who need everything,” he said. “The church is simply thankful that even in these tough times we have something to share with our neighbors.” Waugh said church members organized a free clothing giveaway in December 2007 as a way to reach out to the needs of the community, and the event was such a success they decided to do it again this year. “We gave away so many clothes,” he said. “And when the give-

away was finished that day we had so many items left over that we were able to send more than two tons of clothes overseas to Christian missions in Kosovo.” He said church members have been donating clothing for more than a month, and the basement is filled with many racks and stacks of quality clothing in good condition available for men, women and children in all sizes. He said church members of all ages have spent hours sorting and folding the clothes to get them ready for the giveaway, and personal shopping assistants will be on hand the day of the event to help customers find specific sizes and styles easily. Dan Lang, senior pastor at the church, said, “We just want people to know that the Lord loves them, so we are emptying our closets and sharing what we have

mandment from Christ. “This is just one way to follow that commandment,” Lang said. Waugh said the church realizes the needs may like-

10,242 votes and Tassopoulos received 8,802 votes to win the third open seat on the board. Pollock received 8,488 votes. Ahlers said he is excited to get back to work for the district. He said he wants to work to continue the district’s Excellent with Distinction rating on the state report card and offering students a variety of academic programs, whether it’s more Advanced Placement courses or the dual-credit program the district offers through its partnership with the University of Cincinnati.

Two former district educators will join the Oak Hills School District Board of Education in January, and one incumbent board member will return. Jeannie Schoonover and Ritsa Tassopoulos, both of whom were teachers in the district, were elected to the school board Nov. 3. Incumbent school board member Rick Ahlers was reelected to another four-year term, while school board member Jack Pollock came up short in his bid for reelection. Board member Greg Felix did not seek reelection. According to unofficial results from the Hamilton County Board of Elections, Schoonover received the most votes with 11,166; Ahlers came in second with

Ahlers said the board must pay attention to state politics because the amount of state funding and number of state mandates could have an effect on Oak Hills, such as when all-day kindergarten has to be implemented. “When we know what the state is doing then we can get back to working on some of the main projects we’ve been working on in the district,” he said. Schoonover said she was surprised to receive the most votes, and the results were overwhelming and heartwarming. “It was very gratifying to see all our hard work come to fruition,” she said. She said now she can focus on doing her homework and getting up to speed on the finances of the district so she is prepared for joining the board in January. Increasing community involvement at board meetings and working directly with district residents are among the goals Schoonover said she wants to work on as a board member, as well as being proactive in developing long-term plans for the district and examining the curriculum. “We have to make sure we are doing the right things for our children, and since Oak Hills is now rated Excellent with Distinction we can’t rest on our laurels,” she said. “We have to keep raising the bar and make sure we’re pushing ahead.” Tassopoulos said it was a good surprise to find out she won a seat on the board, and said she couldn’t have done it without all the help from her friends who volunteered at the polls on her behalf. She said she’s looking forward to maintaining an open and honest dialogue with district residents. “We need to make sure people are aware of what’s going on in the district,” she said. Tassopoulos said spending tax dollars wisely is a priority, as well as making sure the money spent goes toward quality in education for the students, 21st century learning and maintaining the district’s Excellent with Distinction designation. “The students need to be provided with the best education possible,” she said. Pollock, who has been a board member since June 2001, said he hasn’t considered whether he will run for school board again in the future, but looks forward to helping with the transition of the new board members. “I’m going to make sure I do what I can to get the new board members acclimated so they can get off to a running start, just as previous board members did for me when I first joined the board,” he said.

Mother of Mercy journalists impress workshop panelists Mother of Mercy senior Mallory Workman scanned her notes, held the microphone, and asked Gov. Ted Strickland’s advisors about future state education requirements in foreign languages. Mercy senior Sydney Murray sat beside Workman taking notes along with everyone else in the auditorium. Brewster Rhoads, the governor’s regional director, and Greg Landsman, director of the Ohio Governor’s office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives, addressed the question, but didn’t answer it. “They just put it back on the schools,” Workman said. Despite a speech that emphasized global competition, the governor’s advisors mentioned no plans to increase our state’s competency in foreign languages.

The press conference with Rhoads and Landsman ended the Ohio Scholastic Media Association Region 3 workshop at the Voice of America Learning Center of Miami University Friday, Oct. 16. Mercy Journalism advisor Barbara David took the entire journalism class to the workshop that featured sessions on variety of topics including multimedia usage, InDesign instruction, sports photography, editorial policy, and “good writing,” a session that argued for excellence in writing for television, radio, Internet, blogging, and Twitter. WCPO-TV’s Tom McKee led “Good writing is good writing,” and several instructors noted Mother of Mercy’s students. “They asked good questions,” the Cincinnati Enquirer’s Carrie

Whitaker said, and welcomed an invitation to visit Mercy and continue the discussion about the journalism industry’s future. “Those girls seem prepared,” said Candace Perkins Bowen, assistant professor of Kent State University and OSMA executive director. “I liked teaching them. They caught on quickly,” said Georgia Dunn, Ohio Journalism Education Association state director, who worked exclusively with Mercy students on InDesign. “By the end of the session, they knew it.” In addition to Mallory Workman and Sydney Murray, Anna Bengel, Kristen Gallagher, Maggie Kissinger, Kelly O’Brien, Chelsea Rosfeld, Hannah Schwab and junior Sarah Tebelman attended the workshop.

Elder advances, set for rematch with St. X By Tony Meale

Tim O’Conner is back. The Elder High School wide receiver, who was injured after hauling in a 36-yard reception on the first play of the game against St. Xavier Oct. 2, is on the field once more. O’Conner caught three balls for 88 yards – including a 42-yard touchdown

reception – as Elder opened the postseason with a 35-14 dismantling of Dayton Huber Heights Wayne at The Pit on Nov. 7. The Panthers fell behind 7-0 in the first quarter but then scored 35 unanswered points. Elder compiled 423

yards of t o t a l offense, as s e n i o r quarterback Mark Miller was 16-of-23 for 273 yards and three touchdowns. Junior running back Ben Coffaro rushed 25 times for 117 yards and two touchdowns; he also had five catches for 76 yards and

two scores. The Panthers’ defense failed to force a turnover, but it did have five sacks. Elder (8-2, 1-2) now prepares for a rematch with GCL-South champion St. Xavier (9-2, 3-0), which defeated Centerville 37-12. The Bombers are led by senior quarterback Luke Massa, who has thrown for 1,579 yards and 15 touchdowns on the year. Sopho-

more tailback Conor Hundley is the team’s top rusher; he has amassed 997 yards on the ground. St. X also has a stout defense that has allowed seven points or fewer in a game six times this season. The game is slated for Saturday, Nov. 14, at a site to be determined. If Elder advances, it plays the winner of Anderson and Middletown.

Panthers earns top-10 finish at state By Tony Meale

The Elder High School cross country team finished 10th in the Division I State Championship at Scioto Downs in Columbus Nov. 7. Elder totaled 228 team points. Cleveland St. Ignatius, which won the state championship, had 82, and Mason junior Zach Wills (15:45.11) placed first overall to win his second straight state title. The Panthers were led by senior Keith Schenkel (16:38.68), who finished 39th overall, and junior Josh Makin (16:42.96), who finished 46th.

Spencer became varsity head coach in 1976 and led Elder to state championships in 1982, 1986, 1988 and 1989. The Panthers were runners-up in 1987. “Regionals have gotten really tough,” Spencer said. “There were years we didn’t get out of regionals and I thought we could be top ten at state.” With two of its top three runners in Makin and Rieskamp returning next season, the Panthers look primed for another appearance at state 2010.

Oak Hills’ Velasquez finishes 35th at state By Tony Meale and Anthony Amorini

Oak Hills High School senior cross country runner Izak Velasquez competed in the Division I State Championship at Scioto Downs in Columbus Nov. 7. Velasquez finished 35th overall in a time of 16:37.29. This is a vast improvement over his 2008 state performance, when he took 92nd with a time of 16:53.71.

Mason junior Zach Wills (15:45.11) won his second straight state title. “(Velasquez) battled some flu-like illness early in the year,” Oak Hills head coach Joe Zeinner said. “He came back and has been very strong the past couple of weeks. To see him reach his individual goal is pretty neat as a coach. He was always about the team first.” Velasquez led Oak Hills to a fifth-place finish at regionals Oct. 31. He finished sixth overall in a time of

16:22.02. “Izak ran a pretty darn good race,” Zeinner said. “He was in 31st at the halfmile mark. He was 10th place by a mile and a half. He let the race come to him. He runs with a lot of heart.” The team, however, did not qualify for state, as only the top four advance. Oak Hills took fifth place as a team, missing state by 40 points. “We were still pretty happy with fifth place,” Zeinner said. “We put it all

on the line, and we’re pleased with the effort.” Most of the team planned on going to state to cheer Velasquez and several team members – Max Bischoff, Cody Lacewell, Blake Meyer and David Colbrand – showed up to run with him this past week. Brett Frondorf came as well but couldn’t run because of illness. Zeinner said Velasquez and Bischoff, along with Stephen Kluesener, have been the “heart and soul” of the team.

“It means everything to me that they care that much about the program,” Zeinner said. “They showed up to run the five mile with Izak. They are getting out there and working out even though they don’t have to. It’s nice to reinforce they’re in it for the team and for the long haul.” “Those are some big shoes to fill but we have a nice cast of returning athletes along with a nice freshman class coming in,” he said.

Mercy offering Friday health fair You can ask a doctor or physical therapist questions, get an EKG, blood pressure screening, or pulmonary function test and it’s all free at the Mercy Health and Wellness Fair. The fair will be 9 a.m.-2 p.m. Friday, Nov. 13, in the HealthPlex Conference Center at Mercy Hospital Western Hills, 3131 Queen City Ave. The fair offers a wide variety of free services including:

for four years at 320 degrees below zero in CREW’s CryoBioBank. The sperm was thawed for the artificial insemination procedure in June. Stoops was confident the procedure would work because it had been successful before, in 2006. That time, Nikki experienced a normal pregnancy, but 492 days into it, on Jan. 5, 2008, she delivered a stillborn female calf. “We knew there was a large chance that could happen because she was an older female having a baby for the first time,” Stoops said. “As we’ve seen with all the stud book records we go through, all the females that have had stillborns with their first calf go on to have successful second births. That makes us feel really good.” Ideally, Stoops said, the zoo would breed the animals naturally. But male Asian rhinos - which include Sumatran and Indian rhinos - are extremely

aggressive and are known to injure the females. There are 60 Indian rhinos in captivity in North America, the zoo said. Cincinnati has no males and one other female, but “she has not been able to carry a calf,” Stoops said. That female is expected to be replaced by another female from the Wilds, a wildlife conservation preserve in southeastern Ohio. Successful breeding is important in maintaining the genetic diversity necessary to keep the population healthy. The Indian rhino is one of five rhino species. It is listed as vulnerable on the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Red List of threatened species. The species nearly became extinct in the early 1900s due to loss of habitat and hunting. Thanks to conservation efforts, the population has grown and in May 2007 was estimated at 2,575, the IUCN says.

Rhino expecting again

A Cincinnati Zoo rhinoceros whose groundbreaking pregnancy resulted in a stillborn calf in 2008 is expecting again.

Last week’s question

Do you plan to attend a Veterans Day event in your community? What does the day mean to you? “Although I have no current plans to attend an event, to me it is recognition of those who risked their lives and those who gave their lives for our freedoms.” B.N. “Delhi is dedicating there Veteran’s Memorial on Sunday, Nov. 8, at 1 p.m.. My dad, passed away five years ago and he was a veteran in the United States Army. Our entire family will be at the event to remember him and all the men and women who have died that faithfully served and protected our country.” J.A.B. “Yes I will attend a veterans memorial service. The day is very special to me because my father who served in France during World War I died on Nov. 11.” L.S. “Yes, we will be attending Veterans Day events in the community. My daughter will be performing in the choir in the celebration taking place at C.O. Harrison. She will also have the privilege of serving breakfast to the veterans participating in the event and their families. She is so proud to be taking part in the day’s festivities. It’s a great way to say thank you to all that these wonderful people have done and sacrificed for us.” C.F.

Next question Is “Sesame Street” still relevant today, 40 years after its television debut? Why or why not? Do you have any favorite memories of the show? Every week The Community Press asks readers a question they can reply to via e-mail. Send your answer to with Chatroom in the subject line. “I don’t attend an event but I always say a prayer thanking those who have served (and are serving) for my freedom.” C.A.S. “In all honesty, I had not thought about attending a Veterans Day event until this week’s Ch@troom question showed up. Although I am a veteran, I did not see combat, and I was lucky to have done my tour of duty in the Navy during a relatively peaceful time in our country’s history (1954-1958). “People have a tendency to take the good things in life for granted, and I am also guilty of that from time to time, and I regret it. This note from the Community Press has made me decide to plan to attend one of the events in the community, to show my appreciation for the awesome sacrifices made by so many in our Armed Forces, especially those who courageously gave their very lives in defense of our country and our freedom. Thank you American veterans!” B.B.

Thanks for not giving to your pet As you prepare for Thanksgiving, hosting crowds of in-laws, outlaws and assorted stragglers, keep in mind your pet will appreciate being kept out of the stress loop. If you are going out, leave your pet home and away from celebrations. If you are the host, set up a quiet, comfy place for your pet to reside during the festivities. A comfortable crate is one solution; a room with a do not disturb sign is another. Don’t put your pet in the garage! Garages are often used as storage for many chemicals that are deadly to pets. And remember, a tired pet is a good pet. Try giving extra exercise and play time in the morning before guests arrive. Keep current registration and identification tags on your pet. With guests coming in and out of your home, it is very easy for a door to be left ajar and for your animal to wander off.

Food manners and safety

While some would argue that some pets have better table manners than Aunt Edna, you can feed your pet close to the normal schedule, but before guests arrive, to reduce the temptation for begging and stealing. You can also use a pet gate or safety barrier during mealtime so your pet is nearby.

Don’t give your pet different food than they would normally eat. Think of how you feel after over-stuffing yourself at the mealtime. Diane Feeding your Zdelar-Bush dog or cat diffood, Community ferent especially the Press guest kind from a columnist T h a n k s g i v i n g feast, can cause unwanted abdominal pain, vomiting or diarrhea. Discourage family members and guests from indulging your pet with inappropriate snacks. Food high in sodium (especially peanuts and chips) and other fatty foods like poultry skin, beef or pork fat can cause an inflammation of pancreas. Pancreatitis is potentially life-threatening condition. Keep chocolate away from dogs and cats. Chocolate, which contains theobromine and caffeine, can be harmful to your pooch. Rapid breathing and hyperactivity are signs of bad reaction to chocolate. Once the table is cleared, make sure pets cannot get to scraps or bones.

Food preparation and disposal

Don’t leave raw turkey on the kitchen counter. Pets can be creative in their quest to reach the counter. Dispose of aluminum foil, plastic wrap and waxed paper from holiday foods. If your pet can get to it, they will lick the food off foils or wraps. The swallowing of such coverings can cause intestinal obstruction. Keep leftover food out of reach and in tightly closed containers.

Secure your garbage

It only takes a minute to get into the garbage and wolf down whatever smells good – including the string used to tie the turkey. Turkey bones are dangerous for your pet. Any brittle, spiky bone could lodge in the esophagus or cause an irritation of the stomach or intestines. Onions in holiday stuffing can lead to canine anemia if consumed by your dog. Grapes and raisins are toxic and can cause kidney failure in pets. Caffeine and alcohol are also toxic for pets. All of these “treasures” are packaged nicely into the trash for your pet to do some one-stop shopping And remember, keep your emergency vet clinic or veterinary hospital number handy.

Sisters of Charity celebrate jubilees

A total of 26 Sisters of Charity of Cincinnati are celebrating jubilees this year. They represent 1,315 years of service in the Cincinnati area, in dioceses throughout the United States and in Guatemala and Mexico. Diamond jubilarians, celebrating 60 years of commitment, were honored at a Mass at the Congregation’s Mount St. Joseph Motherhouse in August; golden jubilarians, marking 50 years, were honored at a Mass in July. This year’s golden jubilarians are: Sisters Jo Ann Martini, Suzanne Donovan, Marty Gallagher, Juanita Marie Gonzales, Mary Gallagher, Maureen Heverin, Mary Paul Medland, Kay Willenborg, Carol Leveque, Clarann Weinert, Joan Clare Stewart, Mary Alice Stein and Joan Wessendarp. This year’s diamond jubilarians are sisters Ann Paulette Burger, Mary Germaine Maximovich, Joseph Ellen Noppenberger, Marian Hart, Patrice Vales Joan Cain, Therese Marie Tuszynski, Lucia Anne Roney and Jean Ann Glutz. The following have a westside connection: Sister Ann Paulette Burg er – Born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio, Sister Ann Paulette Burger said the Sisters of Charity of Cincinnati were part of her life from a young age. She was taught by the Charities from first through 12th grades at Holy Family, St. Lawrence and Seton High School. “When I decided to enter religious life after high school in 1949, there was no other Community that I seriously considered,” Sister said. This year she celebrates 60 years of religious life. From 1981 until 1987, she was an intermediate teacher at St. William School before spending the next 19 years as a part-time elementary librarian at St. Ann and Holy Family schools. In 2006, Sister Ann Paulette retired and began volunteering at the Sisters of Charity Motherhouse. Sister also volunteers in the library at Our Lady of Lourdes one day each week, and at Holy Family School as needed. In her free time, she enjoys photography, coin collecting and playing cards. She is part of the Card Club, a group of 12 Sisters of Charity who have gathered for the last 24 years for a weekend at Lake Lorelei in Fayetteville, Ohio. Sister Jo Ann Martini – Growing up in Cincinnati, she attended Our Lady of Victory in Delhi. In the sixth grade, her teacher, a Franciscan sister, spoke on vocations, and Sister Jo Ann said it was then that she knew she wanted to enter religious life. It was while attending Seton High School that she realized she wanted to become a Sister of Charity. At the request of her mother, she entered the work force after graduation. She left three months later, at the end of August, and on Sept. 8, 1949, entered the Sisters of Charity of Cincinnati. This year she

She received a master’s degree in pastoral studies from Loyola University in Chicago, Ill., in 1991. In 1993, she began serving as the DRE elementary division at St. John the Baptist parish in Harrison, a position she continues in today. At the parish, she also serves as a Eucharistic lector, Eucharistic minister, facilitator in the “Why Catholic” program and a member of the Daughters of Isabella women’s organization. She also is an active member in the Archdiocese Cincinnati Religious Education Association (CREA) organization. In 1999, she was honored with the Harrison Council No. 2633 Knights of Columbus “Religious of the Year” award for her contribution to the spiritual and temporal growth of the Church and its members. Sister Joan Wessendarp – She attended St. William School and Seton High School. She made a novena to St. Therese the Little Flower, and “my answer came at the end of the novena on Feb. 11, the Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes. (That day) I received my acceptance into the Sisters of Charity.”

As a Sister of Charity, she has spent all 50 years ministering in the field of education – at all levels. She began her education ministry as a junior high school instructor at Loyola in Denver, Colo., in 1963. The following year she taught high school religion and English at Archbishop Alter High School in Kettering. One of her favorite ministries began in 1972 as assistant dean of students at the College of Mount St. Joseph. She became the director of student activities at Seton High School in Cincinnati in 1979. She remained in the position for three years before serving the next seven as a teacher at the school. From 1989 until 1992, she ministered as the director of religious formation at St. Catherine before taking over as the guidance counselor at St. Ursula in 1992. Five years later, she became the elementary school counselor to four Catholic schools – Holy Family, St. Lawrence and Resurrection and St. Vincent de Paul. One year after her ministry began, additional staff was hired and she no longer served St. Lawrence. By 2000, she was assigned to Holy Family and St. Vincent de Paul, but when the school closed in 2007, she became the full-time counselor at Holy Family. In addition to her fulltime ministry, she spent six years as a Network Leader

for the Congregation. She has a passion for music and has played the piano, organ, clarinet and violin. She enjoys hiking, cycling, swimming and cross country skiing. Sister Martha Jean Gallagher – Born and raised in Cincinnati, Sister Martha Jean Gallagher (the former Sister Catherine Maureen) attended Seton High School where she was taught by the Sisters of Charity. It was there that she met her mentor and role model, Sister of Charity Linda Chavez (then Sister Leo Margaret). Sister Marty entered the community at the age of 18. In 2009, Sister Marty is celebrating 50 years as a Sister of Charity of Cincinnati. Her first mission was as primary teacher at St. Charles in Lima, Ohio. During a summer break, she was assigned to teach in a migrant farm worker school in Findlay, Ohio – one of the most significant events in her ministries, she said. It was there that she met Sister of Charity Pauline Apodoca, who was conducting a study for the Archdiocese of Cincinnati on the needs of farm workers. In 1969, Sister Marty was missioned as a primary teacher to St. Mary in Greenville, Ohio, an area that also had a large migrant population. On weekends and evenings she worked in the medical clinics of migrants and went out

into the fields and camps with Sister Pauline. In 1974, at the request of labor leader and civil rights activist Cesar Chavez, she began working with United Farm Workers in Salinas, Calif. Three weeks into her ministry, she was named the administrator of the United Farm Workers Clinic in Salinas. After three years, and total mental and physical exhaustion, she left the clinic. She studied the language and the culture in Ensenada, Mexico, for a short time before ministering in a medical clinic, La Clinica del Pueblo, in the village of Tierra Amarilla in northern New Mexico, in charge of administration while also becoming a licensed EMT. Sister Marty returned to Cincinnati in 1978 and participated in the active spirituality program at the College of Mount St. Joseph for nine months. In 1979, she founded and directed Connelly Homes for the Mentally Retarded, a group home for women with mental illness and developmental disabilities. During the 10 years she served as director, she applied to the University of Cincinnati for a master’s degree in mental health counseling and received a full scholarship. Soon after, she developed Meniere’s disease, a severe hearing disorder, and was told to eliminate all stress in her life. She was forced to leave Connelly Homes. In 1991, after completing her master’s, she became a part-time staff member of the wellness center at the College of Mount St. Joseph. At the same time, she began working on mental health issues in Mother Margaret Hall nursing facility at Mount St. Joseph also part-time. As both positions turned into full-time ministries, she decided to resign at the college and stay at Mother Margaret Hall, a position she continues in today. Sister Marty also sees individual clients and conducts in-service for the nurse aides and nursing personnel. Once a week, since 1997, she has taught a class for Sisters on inte-

grating mental health and spirituality. She also works with Sisters of Mercy at McAuley Convent and conducts some of their in-service education on death and dying. Sister Suzanne Donovan – “While the Sisters of Charity of Cincinnati seem to have always been a part of my life, it was the women who served at St. Lawrence, our home parish; the high school I attended, Seton High School; and those women I met when my sister entered the Community that witnessed to something I found very compelling,” Sister of Charity Suzanne Donovan (the former Sister Susan Joseph) said on the occasion of her golden jubilee. Sher earned a bachelor’s degree in education from the College of Mount St. Joseph (Cincinnati, Ohio). Her first mission was as an intermediate teacher at St. Bernard in Springfield, Ohio, from 1963 until 1968. Sister Suzanne’s ministry in education continued as elementary teacher and then principal at St. Mary, Greenville, Ohio, (1968’69, 1969-’72); elementary principal, Resurrection School, Cincinnati (1972’75); and teacher, Thomas More College, Ft. Mitchell, Ky., (1975-’76). In 1991, she began a new role as councilor for the Sisters of Charity Leadership Council, which she said “offered challenges, delight and its share of growth opportunities.” Her responsibilities included communications and long-range planning. For the past nine years, Sister Suzanne has served as the director of human resources for the Diocese of Wilmington, Del., where she also serves as the coordinator of the safe environments education program, created in response to the Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People adopted in 2002 by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops. She said her role in teaching, as well as planning, managing, coaching, counseling and administration, “was all part of what was yet to be as I came to minister in the Diocese of Wilmington.”

Hear what some of your friends think of you with dilemmas such as, “I think it would be m o r e responsible to stay home and for Father Lou study the test and Guntzelman not to go to Perspectives the movies; yet, I’ve been working hard, maybe I deserve a break or find time to do both.” A judgment is called for. A prudent judgment. Situations crying for a prudent decision seem endless in life: how to break bad news gently; whether to punish a fault or let it go this time; how much to become further involved in a risky or flirtatious relationship; what legislation to vote for in an election that will best promote the common good, etc.? All such matters, great and small, are governed by prudence. We become a prudent and wise person not in making one prudent decision. Prudence is the acquired habit of always, or nearly always, choosing the right means to achieve morally good ends. At times it can be agonizing and demand much of us. Former Yale chaplain

William Sloane Coffin said, “The first of the four cardinal virtues of the Roman Catholic Church is ‘prudentia,’ which basically means damn good thinking. Christ came to take away our sins, not our minds.” Yes, prudence takes damn good thinking – not merely egotistically deciding what fits my agenda. If we develop prudence, it usually comes from the widest possible observation and experience of human behavior, understanding what constitutes psychological health, and a conscientious awareness of the general moral principles with which God has imbued mankind. Prudence has little correlation with book learning. Some people seem to develop it more readily, some otherwise intelligent persons appear slow to catch on, and geniuses may be totally deficient. Making prudent choices is often laborious, yet the complexities of life make it ever more necessary. Thomas Aquinas claimed that the central moral virtue was prudence. While love is the underlying motive for moral action, the essence of moral judgment itself is the astute and wise judgment we exercise by sifting through all the alternatives

presented by the concrete world. And since the alternatives are often so complex, wise judgment is itself a skill and constitutes the virtue called prudence.

So, if you hear some friends have called you the most prudent person they know, smile, don’t frown. Father Lou Guntzelman is a Catholic priest of the Archdiocese

If, in your absence, some friends of yours said you were one of the most prudent people they knew – would you feel complimented or criticized? Prudence sounds a lot like “prude,” doesn’t it? So, are you offended? What is prudence, and what does it mean to be prudent? Prudence is the first of four virtues traditionally named as the most important in the ethical order. As far back as Plato and Aristotle the virtues of prudence, justice, fortitude and temperance have been praised. In “A Concise Dictionary of Theology,” Gerald Collins S. J. says that prudence “entails the capacity to translate general norms and ideals into practice.” A Christian prudence is more than a mere shrewdness to win your case or avoid harsh consequences. It’s more similar to an innate common sense. Prudence is the intellectual ability to choose the right means toward a worthy end. You know how often we struggle with puzzling questions of how to spend our money, where to direct our time, how to handle the competing demands of our lives, how to settle differences, etc. A student may wrestle




A local woman says she now regrets ever responding to an ad for air duct cleaning. Although the price in the ad sounded good, she says she had no idea what she was getting herself into. What happened to her should be a cautionary tale for everyone. Nicole Smith of Fort Thomas says she now realizes she should have doublechecked before agreeing to more and more duct cleaning after responding to an ad. “It said they would clean 14 vents and one return for $49.95. I was like, ‘They’re not that dirty, just kind of sweep it through and get it out of there,’ ” she said. Smith said when the serviceman arrived things were different. “He even refused to clean the ducts because he said they had to have something done. He wouldn’t do it, he said he had to treat it first,” she said. Smith ended up agreeing to a host of things. “It was treatment for a sanitizer to control germs, bacteria and feces, and a product to control mold, mildew and fungus,” she said. That, plus a whole lot

more, came to $1,000. After the serviceman left, friends and other companies she contacted all raised questions about the air duct cleaning – including whether she really had mold as the serviceman claimed. So, she called and requested a refund, but it was denied. “They said because they had already done the treatment they put it through,” said Smith. I showed Smith the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency recommendation about duct cleaning. It said duct cleaning has never been shown to actually prevent health problems. “I really wish I would have read this beforehand,” Smith told me. The EPA said much of the dirt and dust in air ducts simply adheres to the duct surfaces and does not necessarily enter the living space. So, it said, cleaning should be considered for only severe cases of mold, dust and debris. The EPA also said, “Pollutants that enter the home both from outdoors and indoor activities such as cooking, cleaning, smoking or just

It isn’t the things that go in one ear and out the other that hurt, as much as the things that go in one ear and get all mixed up before they slip out the mouth . . . A wit once wise-cracked,“Nothing is opened more by mistake than the mouth.”It was meant in jest but it also has a serious meaning. For instance, can any one honestly say he has never said the wrong thing at the wrong time? Hardly. When a faux-pas like that happens, one regrets it. An unthinking slip of the tongue can happen to any one. It is understandable. However, an outright lie - especially an untrue and unconfirmed rumor spoken behind the back of someone, is not a slip of the tongue. Instead, it is a slippery slide that debases a human mind. Because malicious gossip can malign, tragically taint or ruin a person’s character and reputation, the act is inexcusable. The offended person must really stretch religious instinct of compassion, forgiveness and understanding of a non-understandable offense. The victim must show considerable courage to believe the sureness of right will prevail. It takes even more courage to adhere to Ecclesiastes 7:9- “Be not quick to anger, for anger lodges in the bosom of fools”. . . Marilyn Holt

Velma Papenhaus’ threelayer holiday paradise Jell-O loaf

Funny how far a friendship can take you. Dick Herrick, a Mason reader, and I have been friends since we met at Alvey Ferguson, a conveyor company in Oakley, eons ago. I was a bilingual secretary and Dick was an interning college student. Dick’s former neighbors, the Papenhauses, have been close friends of his family for many years. That friendship and this column led Velma to me with her favorite Jell-O recipe . “Red on bottom, white in middle and green on top. Very colorful for holidays,” she said. I think Velma should invite Dick and me over to enjoy a big plateful! Velma uses a Pyrex dish, about 11-by-8.
