Shopping spree back for holidays By Heidi Fallon

Christmas will be merrier for Delhi Township families this year with the Kids, Cops and Firefighters shopping spree. It’s the second year the Skirt Game Committee has teamed up with the Delhi Township fire and police departments and Target to help township families in need. “Last year, we spent about $10,000 and helped 83 kids and 24 families,” said Skirt Game Committee Co-chairman Clyde Kober. “This year, we’ve added two schools and have a goal of 40 families.” The project relies on school staff and the township’s school resource officer to provide the

names of families. Kober said each of the eight schools are asked to provide the names of five families who live in Delhi Township. Along with St. Dominic, Our Lady of Victory, C. O. Harrison and Delshire elementary schools, Delhi and Rapid Run middle schools, the project will include students from Dulles and St. Antoninus elementary schools. “We added Dulles and St. Antoninus because there are students there who live in the township,” said Tom Winkler, president of the citizens police association. Once the organizers have the names, they check with the families to be sure they have the need and want to participate. “It’s a truly expensive project,

but it’s worth every penny,” said police Lt. Jeff Braun. “I don’t know who got more out of it, the kids or the volunteers. “It’s all about putting a smile on the face of the kids.” The project relies on money from sponsors like the RiverviewDelhi Hill Kiwanis, Delhi Civic Association and the Delhi Business Association. Bigg’s, Kober said, also provides the holiday food baskets the families receive just before Christmas, delivered by police and firefighters. Each child is allotted $100 to spend at Target, and the families are scheduled in intervals to shop. “We ask the parents to give us a list for each child with needs, wants and can’t haves,” Kober

said. “It’s amazing what the kids buy,” Winkler said. “You’d think it would be all toys, but they were buying blankets and gifts for others. “It was very touching.” Braun said he, too, witnessed children thinking of others. “We saw them buying a pair of slippers for grandma instead of video games,” Braun said. This year’s shopping day will be Saturday, Dec. 11, starting at 8 a.m. Anyone wanting to donate money can send a check made out to the Skirt Game to the police department at 934 Neeb Road, Cincinnati 45233. Note on the check that it’s for Kids, Cop and Firefighters.

Ministry serves Hispanic community By Kurt Backscheider

When Mynor Canel and his wife, Isis, visited Price Hill four years ago they soon realized they needed to move here to help the neighborhood’s growing Hispanic population. “The Hispanic community in this area is an underground community,” he said. “We saw they were living in a very harsh environment. There were people sleeping on the floor in some homes because they didn’t have a bed. “That touched myself and my wife,” he said. Canel, his wife and their three children packed up their belongings in Los Angeles and moved to Cincinnati in 2008. With the help of Vineyard Church Northwest, Canel, who is a pastor by trade,

established La Vina Cincinnati, an Hispanic outreach ministry in East Price Hill. “Our goal is to have a healthy, multi-cultural church in the area, to grow and serve the community in a professional way and bring people to have an encounter with God and teach them Bible principles they can apply in their daily lives,” he said. “We are a come-as-you-are church and we’re willing to help the community in any way possible.” Members of The Vineyard Northwest are supporting the Price Hill church financially and by volunteering behind the scenes as the fledgling church gets on its feet. “We are there so the congregation can grow into their church,” said Ray Strecker, pastor of compassion ministries for the Vineyard Northwest.

“We running the children’s ministries and our members are committed to help. There is no firm timeline, we are just in a support role.” La Vina Cincinnati hosts a service at 5 p.m. every Saturday at the Price Hill Recreation Center, 959 Hawthorne Ave. At its office at 3206 Warsaw Ave., the ministry offers a music academy at 6 p.m. every Wednesday. Canel said they teach guitar, bass, keyboard and vocals. La Vina also has a Bible study at 7:30 p.m. every Wednesday at its office. Canel said they are starting a youth program this month as well. The meetings for the young people in the neighborhood start at 11 a.m. every Saturday at Refuge Coffee Bar, 5010 at Glenway Ave. In addition to the services, music academy and Bible study,

La Vina also reaches out to help Hispanic people in need whenever they are asked, he said. The ministry provides beds and furniture, supplies diapers and groceries and transports people to medical appointments as needed, he said. “We are here to support anyone who has a need,” Canel said. “It’s amazing how the Lord has been bringing us to help people.” He said moving across the country was a major decision, but he and his wife prayed about it and they are happy their prayers were confirmed. “We fell in love with Cincinnati. The people are nice and they have heart for needy people,” he said. “I wouldn’t change it for anything.” For more information about La Vina Cincinnati, visit

C.O. Harrison students show their red, white & blue By Heidi Fallon

It was a red, white and blue salute to veterans when C.O. Harrison Elementary School fourthgraders belted out a patriotic program for members of the Delhi Township Senior Center, Nov. 10. “It’s their first time doing a Veterans Day program for us,” said Bert Brothers, seniors president. “They are all so cute and the program was just wonderful.”

Clad in white, wearing gym shoes and carrying a tissue paper torch, Jaclyn Jasper portrayed Lady Liberty while classmate Jeremy Moll did his best Uncle Sam impersonation. Along with singing patriotic songs to the cheers and applause of the seniors, many of whom are veterans, the students gave out paper medals they’d made. A few students got the chance to talk with Army World War II veteran Joe Traum.

The Delhi Township man was a prisoner of war in Germany. “I escaped and then found out the war was over,” Traum told Molly Blome and Brandon Jones. “War isn’t very nice and there wasn’t any ice cream in prison.” Each of the 183 students donned a red, white and blue hat with the name, rank and service years of a veteran. Ruth Schoenhoeft, one of two music teachers at C.O. Harrison, helped with the students’ hats. Schoenhoeft said a friend helped collect those names and, in some cases, signatures, at veterans’

facilities. To show their appreciation for the spirited per-

formance, seniors gave out cookies they baked the day before.

Thanksgiving in Price Hill wouldn’t be the same without a parade. The Price Hill Thanksgiving Day Parade is quickly approaching, and residents are gearing up to line Glenway Avenue to watch the annual family event.




“I don’t think people realize just how popular the parade really is,” said Mary Jo Bazeley, a Price Hill Civic Club member and parade volunteer. “We have an excellent turnout along the parade route, and I think that surprises some people who haven’t been to the parade for quite a few years.” This year’s parade starts at 10 a.m. Thursday, Nov. 25, in front of Western Hills High School and, as always, makes its way down Glenway Avenue to Warsaw Avenue before ending at St. Lawrence Church. Civic Club member and parade volunteer Cindy Armstrong said this Thanksgiving marks the 20th annual parade – in the modern era. The holiday event was a must see for decades, but several years ago there was a period when there was no parade at all. Since community organizations like the civic club, the East Price Hill Improvement Association and the Price Hill Historical Society worked to restore the parade in 1990, the event has grown in popularity


Santa Claus waves to spectators as he makes his way down Glenway Avenue during last year’s Price Hill Thanksgiving Day Parade. each year. “The parade is the biggest community event in East and West Price Hill,” Armstrong said. “It’s turned into a great tradition and hopefully it will stay that way for a long, long time.” Bazeley said a few families on Glenway Avenue host large gatherings in their front yards for the parade, and Heritage Community Church serves hot chocolate to people who sit in front of the church to watch the floats, marching bands, school groups,

church groups, business owners and area families pass by. “People kind of turn it into a party,” she said. “The parade has become a wonderful community event.” Armstrong said this year’s parade will feature about 50 entries. When the parade ends, everyone is invited to stop by St. Lawrence Church for a family party featuring pony rides, a petting zoo, pictures with Santa, clowns and hot chocolate and cookies. Armstrong said the free party in St. Lawrence’s parish center is usually packed with people. The post parade party runs until noon. She said all the volunteers and businesses who support the parade and make it possible are truly appreciated. “It’s just amazing how everyone comes together,” she said. “It’s incredible.” For more about your community, visit

Wieland’s heart went to New York state. His lungs, liver, pancreas and one kidney stayed in Ohio. His other kidney went to a perfect match in Washington. And his tissue will help burn victims, his leg bones will go to another person. His cornea will help one person see, and an inner ear bone will help somebody hear for the first time. In all, he helped seven people. “From our sorrow, there are seven families out there who are very joyful,� the Wielands said. “It’s his legacy.� On Nov. 5, after his shift at Target, Wieland met friends. On his way home, at about 2:30 a.m., he lost control of his 2004 Acura, drove off the road and crashed. He was less than a half mile from the home he shared with his parents. Delhi Township Police Cpl. Brad Doerger said Wieland had been drinking and was speeding. Wieland’s parents aren’t dwelling on how their son died. To them, and those who knew him, Wieland is a hero. “If he was fireman and saved somebody from a burning building, he would be a hero,� Debbie Wieland said. “If he went to Iraq and saved a fellow soldier, he would be a hero. “Instead, he saved seven lives through organ donation,� she said. “He’s a hero.� People keep asking the Wielands how they can help. “Our requests aren’t difficult,� Debbie Wieland said. “It is that people fly the American flag, thank a soldier and become an organ donor.� Wieland is survived by

Students and staff at Oak Hills High School honored West Side veterans and active military personnel with a special ceremony for Veterans Day. Oak Hills hosted the assembly, its third Veterans Day commemoration, in the school gymnasium Tuesday, Nov. 9. Three Oak Hills teachers – Donnie Becker, Shannon Murray and Tim Taylor – organized the event, which featured patriotic songs, a heartfelt address from a Vietnam veteran and a slide show individually recognizing each and every veteran and current soldier in attendance. When the program was over, students poured down from the gym bleachers to personally thank the veterans for their service. Veterans were treated to breakfast from Dunkin Donuts before the program and lunch from City Barbecue after the ceremony. In between the assembly and lunch, veterans who wanted to share their experiences were invited to speak to students in a classroom setting. Becker, an Oak Hills English teacher and retired U.S. Air Force master sergeant, said the program reminds students and staff that freedom isn’t free. “While we’re in our safe confines of Green Township and Delhi Township, someone is out their standing watch 24/7 around the world protecting our freedoms,” he said. “These men and women in uniform stood up for us, and this is a day for the Oak Hills community to stand up for them. “We can’t honor them enough for what they’ve done for this country,” Becker said.

Nov. 10 questions

Do you think the new Republican-controlled House of Representatives will be more effective or less effective than the current House? Why? “I think they will be more effective. In the election the people spoke they are just fed up with the way Washington acts. For one thing, sure if they all don't get their act together the Tea Party will become much stronger for the next election.” L.S. “More effective. They have to prove to the people who voted them in that they did listen and are listening to what America wants. Not the group before who only did what they were told to do by Pelosi and Obama.” C.A.S. “I don't think there will be much change since their first order of business will be to start working on their next election campaign. Maybe, just maybe, the House and Senate will have to start working together since they're not both controlled by the same party.” BN “I sure hope so. I truly wish the tea party movement had been strong enough to throw all the bums packing. It has been said the government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. “When half the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the working half will take care of them, then the working half will just stop working because all they earned gets taken away. “That will be the end of our great country if we do not stop current policies.” LD “The effectiveness of the House of Representatives, regardless of who holds the majority, will be effective only when both sides of the aisle make a truly genuine effort to move toward the center in compromise and do what is responsible and right for the future of this country!” TM “I doubt that it will be effective at all. Both sides will fight, nothing will get done, and the economy will continue to suffer. I also expect that some of the people who voted for Republicans will have buyers' remorse when the Republicans start advocating privatizing Social Security and gutting Medicare to balance the

Rand Paul is already calling for cutting defense, which I can't imagine makes the Republican leadership happy.” “Knowingly or unknowingly, the American people voted to increase Washington gridlock in the last election. Whatever they may pass will be tempered or just plain cancelled out by a Democratic Senate and president. “The Tea Party members for all its naive promises to redo government will have to wake up to discover that they have no seniority and no clout. “While John Boehner, unlike his counterpart in the Senate, has verbalized intent to listen to the Tea Party as well as totally redo the way the GOP has done business in the past, this is doubtful. Boehner is much too wedded to big corporate interests to change his stripes. “Big Business interests have both fueled his campaigns in the past as well as providing him with largess to pass onto his fellow Republicans.” Pol.Sci. “The Republican-controlled House can only be successful if John Boehner is willing to meet with the president and work out some mutual goals. “If he should go off and try to pass everything that the Tea Party or the Republican Party desires (often in diametric conflict here) the bills will only die in the Senate or get vetoed by the president. “I am hoping that Boehner is wise enough to take the former course. If he takes a Mitch McConnell (his Republican counterpart in the Senate) stance that his primary goal is to limit the president to a single term, we are in for a lot of rhetoric, grandstanding, name calling and impossible gridlock.” G.B. “I truly do not think that even though Republicans have achieved a majority in the House that this will give them power to do what they believe should be done. (For example, repealing the Obama-sponsored health care legislation.)” B.B.

Property reappraisals under way Next year (2011) will see the full state-mandated appraisal of all property in the county. This process takes place once every six years with a triennial trending update three years into the term. Our office has been working on the 2011 reappraisal since 2009. It is important to understand the critical differences between a “mass appraisal” and a “fee appraisal.” Our office does a mass appraisal of the approximately 349,000 residential, commercial, industrial and exempt parcels in the county. We visit every property, verify characteristics and condition for any recent changes, take a street level picture of each parcel, and correct and update our information with another visit if needed. We also review recent sales information of nearby and similar properties. We are required by state law to set values to current market. There is no better indicator of the market than a valid arms-length sale. In addition to our real estate staff we contract with an experienced mass appraisal firm to assist us. Our contract with them is for about $6 million. The total cost of our mass appraisal runs from $15 to $20 a parcel or slightly more.

There was a recent criticism of our reappraisal work as being somehow inadequate and cursory. While no specific alternative was Dusty Rhodes offered there Community was some sugthat a Press guest gestion more thorough columnist r e a p p r a i s a l should be done, perhaps even to the extent of fee appraisals of every property. A fee appraisal would involve a more detailed review, including but not limited to, visiting each property and doing an interior inspection. It is possible in some cases a fee appraisal, while subjective, might be more accurate. However, the cost would be way beyond our resources. Considering that residential fee appraisals cost an average $300 per parcel that figure alone would put the cost at $104,700,000 for the entire county. Commercial/Industrial fee appraisals can run into the thousands of dollars on a parcel basis. And that doesn’t include the costs of additional staff. Is it worth an additional $98,700,000 or more to obtain

what might be a marginally more accurate reappraisal? Probably not. But the question is purely academic because we don’t have an extra $98 million to spend on a project of this magnitude. The real problem with setting values today is that we are in a fast changing market. What might be right today can be wrong tomorrow. That is why there is a Board of Revision (BOR) for owners to challenge our values. State law requires us to value property as of Jan. 1, 2011, for the tax bills mailed in January 2012. That puts us a year behind the market from the start. For all the drawbacks of a system that requires us to set values “as of” a specific date, our work has been generally good. We always strive to be better within the limitations of our resources. In spite of recent criticisms the reality is that never once – in 20 years – has the state tax commissioner, as the final authority on values, questioned our appraisals or required us to make changes after the work was completed. That is the real test of a mass reappraisal. Dusty Rhodes is the Hamilton County Auditor.

Humble Covedale stands united Like branches from a tree, Covedale and Price Hill have similar origins in that neither were ever self-governing incorporated areas. So they never had legal boundaries. This has allowed the perceived boundaries of these contiguous communities to shift with time, subject to the acceptance of local residents. Perhaps there is no better description of boundary’s that gives us an insight into West-Side culture than what was written in 1894. “Price Hill extends from Fairmount on the north to the Ohio river on the south, and from the brow of the Millcreek Hills on the east, westwardly indefinitely.” The romantic idea of an infinite Price Hill reflects the character standards of its namesake Reese Price, an abolitionist and a theocrat – one who rules in or lives under a form of government that is divinely guided. The idea has a missionary quality, propagating a fraternal “you’re one of us” culture – a culture that is the origin of the West Side’s solidarity. Today the remnants of this culture extend the “West Side” fron-

tier to the far reaches of Hidden Valley, West Harrison and Bright Ind., where many residents adorn their cars with “I Love Price Hill” Jim Grawe bumper stickers. Sadly, howCommunity ever, this culture Press guest as it relates to columnist Covedale has not been kind, as it has traditionally questioned the legitimacy of the Covedale identity, which brings to mind the words of James Howard Kunstler: “It is tragic when people recklessly erase their cultural memory.” Unfortunately, today as in the past, there are a few Price Hill zealots who believe they are crusaders for social justice. Instead they are an embarrassment to Reese Price’s legacy. Using sophisticated propaganda and repression, they stifle public discussion and suppress our Covedale heritage. Now, wielding their political power, they secure public funds to erect West Price

Hill signs within the accepted Covedale boundaries, even after being informed that it would upset a great number of local residents. And they cloak their recklessness in righteousness by continually reminding us, in schoolyard-like fashion, that “The city doesn’t recognize Covedale!” Covedalians have always struggled to shed light on the shadows of their obscurity. For many, Covedale’s entire past has retreated into the realm of myth – a mere “Realtors’ term” supposedly contrived to discredit and infringe upon the perceived “official” Price Hill boundaries. But now, as we sift through the Dumpster of history piecing together our cultural memory, we have a new sense of self and a new spirit. And today, although our demeanor is inconspicuous and humble by nature, in true WestSide fashion, we stand united, ready to resist any attempt to squelch the Covedale Renaissance or dash our optimistic expectations for the future. Jim Grawe is co-founder of the Covedale Neighborhood Association.

Local Residents in Amazement Yesterday As Collectors Provide A Stimulus Package to Cincinnati & Covington! By KEN MCINTOSH STAFF WRITER

ICCA will be placing ads in newspapers, radio and running television spots this week asking people to bring in any old silver and gold coins made before 1965. Those that do bring in their coins will be able to speak with collectors one on one and have their coins looked at with an expert set of eyes. With the help of these ICCA members offers will be made to those that have coins made before 1965. Offers will be made based on silver or gold content and the rarity of the coins.

If you are like a lot of people you might have a few old coins or even a coffee can full lying around. If you have ever wondered what they are worth, now might be your chance to find out and even sell them if you choose. They could be worth a lot according to the International Coin Collectors Association also known as ICCA. Collectors will pay a fortune for some coins and currency for their collections. If they are rare enough, one coin could be worth over $100,000 according to Eric Helms coin collector and ICCA member. One ultra rare dime an 1894S Barber sold for a record $1.9 million to a collector in July of 2007. While that is an extreme example, many rare and valuable coins are stashed away in dresser drawers or lock boxes around the country. The ICCA and its collector members have organized a traveling event in search of all types of coins and currency. “Even common coins can be worth a significant amount due to the high price of silver and gold,” says Helms. Washington quarters and Roosevelt dimes and worth many times their face value. Recent silver markets have driven the price up on even common coins made of silver. Helms explains: all half dollars, quarter and dimes made before 1965 contain 90% silver and are sought after any time silver prices rise. Right now it’s a sellers market he said. The rarest coins these collectors are looking

Cason leads inexperienced Elder hoops squad By Tony Meale

Other area boys’ teams

If Joe Schoenfeld had his way, the Elder High School football team would make a state-title run every year. Sure, it might hurt his hardwood squad since the football players wouldn’t report to basketball practice until December, but as an Elder alum – Schoenfeld graduated in 1977 – rooting against Panthers football isn’t in his DNA. But for the first time since the 2007-08 season, Schoenfeld will have his football guys at basketball practice for the bulk of November. And he isn’t complaining. “(We’re) relatively inexperienced at most positions,” he said. Over the last two years, Elder has gone 22-21 overall and 6-14 in the Greater


Ross Tierney gives his exact attention to the coach during Elder basketball preseason activities.

Oak Hills

The Highlanders hope to improve on a 2009 campaign in which they went 6-15 overall and tied for sixth in the Greater Miami Conference with a 5-9 league record. The top returners are seniors Thomas Schneider, who last year averaged 7.7 points and 5.3 rebounds, and Cory Burgin, who averaged 4.1 points and a teamhigh 3.4 assists. Other returners include seniors Jared Vanderpohl (3.9 points) and Chad Streder (2.3 points), as well as junior Jack Pflum (2.7 points). Oak Hills has recorded two straight losing seasons after going 46-21 (30-12) from 2005-06 to 2007-08. The Highlanders last won the GMC in 2007-08, when they shared the honor with Princeton.

Elder’s Corey Cason has full concentration during Panther dribble drills in a preseason practice. Catholic League, finishing fourth in the GCL-South both seasons. A plethora of Panther seniors, however, hope to get Elder, which last won a league title in 2006-07, back to its title-winning ways. Leading the charge is senior guard Corey Cason, who last year averaged 5.0 points, 1.9 rebounds and 1.0 steal per game. He also hit 31 percent of his threepoint shots and had a season-high 21 points in a loss to Roger Bacon last January. He’ll be joined by seniors Hudson Klauke (PG) and Dominic Glatthaar (F). Klauke saw limited action in 18 games last year but proved capable of hitting shots when called upon. He shot 14-of-27 (52 percent) from the floor and

6-of-10 from three-point range. Glatthaar appeared in 17 games and averaged 1.4 points and 1.4 rebounds. Elder also boasts a trio of seniors big men – Ross Tierney, Chris Blaut and Alex Viox. The Panthers open the season at Chaminade Julienne Dec. 10 before two rivalry home games against Oak Hills (Dec. 14) and Moeller (Dec. 17). Other notable home opponents include Roger Bacon (Jan. 4), St. Xavier (Jan. 21) and La Salle (Feb. 4). The road slate includes Lakota West (Jan. 8), La Salle (Jan. 14), Moeller (Jan. 28), Princeton (Feb. 15) and – in the regular-season finale – St. Xavier (Feb. 18). Schoenfeld described his squad as unselfish with a

The Bombers graduated their top four scorers – including firstteam all-leaguers Luke Massa and Alex Longi – from a team that went 13-11 overall and advanced to regionals before losing 48-46 to La Salle. The top returners are seniors Sean Duggan (F), Will Muething (G), Zacc Yauss (G), Matthew Wagner (F) and Sam Egbers (G). None averaged higher than 3.0 points per game last season. St. X has advanced to the state tournament four times since 2000 and has won six straight district titles. The Bombers last won the Greater Catholic League South division title in 2005, when they shared the honor with Moeller.


The Yellow Jackets move on without former post player and 2010 graduate John Greene, who last year finished among the league leaders in points, rebounds and blocks.

Oak Hills High School senior Thomas Schneider hopes to lead the Highlanders to their first winning season since 2007-08, when they won a share of the GMC title. Blanton was second on the team in scoring (7.8 points) last year and shot nearly 66 percent from the field. Rapking, meanwhile, provided sharp shooting from the outside; he hit 45 percent of his three-pointers last season and was fourth on the team in scoring (6.1 points). Promising newcomers include Alex Haussler, Matt Williams, Josh Byess and Dylan Lee. Wentz said his team is inexperienced and undersized yet hard working.

Expectations high for loaded Lancers team By Tony Meale

When you return all five starters from a team with two regional runner-up finishes in as many years, expectations are high – to say the least. “We have experience,” La Salle High School head basketball coach Dan Fleming said. “We have a lot of guys who have been through it. They know what it takes and have done it before.” That’s for sure. Three of those returning starters – seniors Brandon Neel, Ryan Fleming and Matt Woeste – have started each of the last two years. Neel, the reigning Greater Catholic League South division Player of the Year, led the league in scoring (15.3 points) and finished fourth in assists (2.8) and blocks (0.9) as a junior. He also made more than 50 percent of his shots from the field and reached the 20point mark six times, including four times in the Lancers’ final 11 games. Surely, Neel is looking

La Salle went 22-3 last year, but two of its losses were to the Crusaders, including a 48-41 overtime loss in the regional finals last March. Neel, who amazingly scored double figures in 21 of 25

games last year, had nine points in both losses to Moeller – tying his secondlowest scoring output of the season. Even if Moeller manages to slow Neel, the Lancers have enough offensive firepower to win the GCL-South

this year. Ryan Fleming, coach Fleming’s son, averaged 10.2 points and a teamhigh 5.0 rebounds last season, while Woeste and junior Josh Lemons – secondteam, all-league performers – each averaged around

eight or nine points per game. Impressively, La Salle returns five players who shot 35 percent or better from three-point range, including starting senior guard Trey Casey, who chipped in 5.5 points per game. Size might be an issue for the Lancers – none of their starters is taller than 63 – but last year their speed and crisp ball movement gave opposing teams’ big men fits. La Salle was also adroit at driving to the basket and finding the open shooter, which figures to be a staple of the offense once again. La Salle opens the season at home Dec. 3 against Fairfield and travels to Fenwick Dec. 10. The Lancers host St. Xavier Dec. 17 in an early season GCL-South showdown – their one and only until Jan. 14, when they host Elder – and will play in the Kingdom of the Sun Tournament Dec. 2730 in Ocala, Fla. All are preparation for another deep tournament run, one that – barring

Wiegman to lead Mercy toward milestone By Tony Meale

Nov. 27 against Princeton. The first game of the year. That’s when it starts. That’s when Mother of Mercy High School head basketball coach Mary Jo Huismann, who enters the 2010-11 season with 599 career wins, has her first chance at history. With one more victory, Huismann becomes just the sixth coach in the annals of Ohio high school girls’ basketball to notch 600 wins. Karen Wittrock of Rocky River Lutheran West holds

the all-time record with 648 career wins. If No. 600 doesn’t come against Princeton, Huismann will have opportunities at Hughes (Dec. 2), at Colerain (Dec. 7) and against Seton (Dec. 9). With the Bobcats’ returning talent, however, odds are the milestone win will come sooner rather than later. Mercy’s top returner is sophomore point guard Kelley Wiegman, who last year was the only freshman in any division of the Girls’ Greater Cincinnati League to earn first-team all-conference status. And for good reason.


Mercy sophomore Kelley Wiegman was the only freshman in the GGCL to earn First-Team All-League honors last season. She led the Scarlet division with 4.3 assists per game.

other area girls’ teams Oak Hills

throughout the year.

The Lady Scots had another fine season last year – they’ve finished third or better in the Greater Miami Conference four of the last five years – and went 17-5 overall. They graduated several starters, including allleague performers Amanda Baute and Brittany Braun, from a team that went 11-3 in league play and finished tied for the second in the GMC. The Lady Scots’ top returner is second-team all-star Danni Scholl, who was second on the team in scoring (9.7) last season. Other returners include juniors Katie Huber, Stephanie Chisholm, Christina Miller, Katie Kingrey, Gabby Kain and Amber Porta, as well as sophomores Lindsey Eckstein, Sydney Leitz and Mackenzie Laumann. Oak Hills went 1-1 in the playoffs last year, defeating Loveland and losing to league-rival Mason.



Seton will try to rebound from last year’s 4-17 record. The Saints should receive significant contributions from senior forward Katie Phillips, who is entering her fourth year on the varsity squad, as well fellow senior Sam Dresmann. Phillips’ 12.4 points per game made her the third highest scorer in the Girls’ Greater Cincinnati Scarlet Division last season. Sophomore Marisa Meyer could be poised to have a breakout season after playing in eight games for the Saints as a freshman. Despite the school’s struggles last season, head coach Mike Gleason said his players’ attitudes continue to improve and his squad is looking to compete as best as it possibly can

Not only did Wiegman finish second on her team in scoring (8.6) and rebounding (3.9), but she also led the GGCL-Scarlet in assists (4.0). She also averaged 1.5 steals per game, shot 71 percent fro the foul line and saved her best games for the toughest competition. She had a career-high 24 points in a win over McAuley last December and 20 points in a win over Seton in January. Wiegman also averaged nearly 30 minutes a game. Joining the savvy sophomore will be forwards Allie Hart and Anna Maffey. Hart, a senior, averaged 5.0 points and 3.7 rebounds last year, while Maffey, a

The Lady Yellow Jackets have endured nine straight losing seasons, including a 4-17 (2-12) campaign in 2009. Head coach John Schablein, who enters his second year at Taylor and ninth year coaching overall, has no seniors on his roster but returns two starters in sophomore center Christina Dilley and junior guard Liz Mooney. Dilley averaged 4.4 points, 5.6 rebounds and 1.4 blocks as a freshman; she also led the team in field-goal percentage (42.7). Mooney was third on the team in scoring (5.3 points) and tied for first in steals (2.5). Other top players include junior guard Brandy Crouse, senior forward Katy Espich and junior forward Shannon McEneny. Junior center Kara Gillespie, sophomore Cheyenne Redding and freshmen Allie Dolan and Lauran Lemuix will also be in the mix. “We will be young and aggressive with no seniors,” Schablein said. “The team has decent size and good overall quickness.” Taylor, which finished seventh in the Cincinnati Hills League last season, last won a league title in 1998.

Western Hills

The Lady Mustangs graduated loads of talent from last season, including first-team all-league performer Asia Dillingham, second-team all-star Ciera Williams and honorable-mention recipient Allyndra Dillingham. Western Hills, which finished 11-8 overall and 8-4 in the Cincinnati Metro Athletic Conference, returns senior center Miranda Fleming, who fin-

junior, averaged 3.3 points and 3.8 rebounds. Huismann described Hart as a leader who can play all five positions on the floor and Maffey as someone who excels around the basket. Mercy also hopes to get a boost from freshmen Emily Bidde and Haley Danemiller. “We are going to be young with (several) freshmen on varsity,” Huismann said. “(But) I think it will be a good mix (with the) experience (we return).” The Bobcats went 9-13 last season, including 5-5 in the GGCL for a fourth-place conference finish. Mercy last won a league title in 2001.


Oak Hills High School senior guard Danni Scholl is the top returner for the Lady Scots. A second-team all-league performer, she averaged nearly 10 points per game last season. ished fifth in the league with 6.3 rebounds, and junior forward Danyel Champion, who averaged 5.5 points and 5.9 rebounds. Also returning are junior guards Courtlyn Williams and Kiasha Hughes, as well as senior guard Aundreana Thomas and senior forward Jaida Alston. The Lady Mustangs went 1-1 in the playoffs last year, defeating Aiken in opening-round action before falling to Loveland.

One of life’s saddest times: the death of a child When an adult we love dies, we experience a wrenching loss. When a child dies, our heart-rending loss seems also like a theft. A whole lifetime has been stolen as well as all the happy events throughout that lifetime. Feelings of injustice, anger, sorrow and confusion envelop us. We are left without answers. Through tears we ask the most frequent question of life – why? Such tragedies convince a few people that there is no God, or that God is not good. Others offer solace in pious expressions, such as, “I guess God took her because he needed another angel.” While well-meaning, such “answers” have distressing implications. At precisely the time that family and friends need to be assured of God’s compassion and presence, God is pointed out in the lineup of possible culprits as the cause of their pain. God did it! Many theologians and clergy shudder at such explanations because they depict a God contrary to the images in the scriptures. God does not

arbitrarily take children from their families. God is the One who ultimately heals, raisFather Lou es up, Guntzelman offers fullof life Perspectives ness and unites. “I have come so that they may have life and have it to the fullest.” (John 10:10) So what are we to think about the tragic death of child? In our rational understanding of cause and effect we have difficulty exonerating God from being the cause of tragedies. The friends of Job had a similar difficulty. Basically, they explained the cause of Job’s sufferings by implying, “God did this to you; you must have deserved it somehow. Just curse God and die.” But Job didn’t believe them. Yes, he was puzzled and angry at God as he struggled with his tragedies. He challenged God to a face to face meeting. Then, after

listening closely to what God said, and thinking much, Job finally reached his “answer” in dealing with the mystery of suffering that was touching his life. His answer was to believe all the more in this inscrutable God. Job proclaimed, “Even though he should slay me, still will I trust in him.” (Job 13:15) If there is an “answer” for us who believe in God, it is found in acknowledging our human inability to understand everything. We walk by faith, and not by sight. “The One beyond what is able to be thought,” is how St. Anselm described God. Our intellects and faith are imperfect and limited. We are not the final measure of mystery. It is difficult for us imperfect beings to live in an imperfect world. Life is sometimes secure and predictable. Sometimes it is random, chaotic and unexplainable. We would like to completely understand and control it, but we can’t. What we can do, however, is make a choice between despair and cynicism, or choose faith and

trust. People of faith believe that in the beginning, in some unknowable way, God took swirling and chaotic darkness and began bringing out of it life, order, and beauty. God’s creation is not finished. It is still going on. We believe that in some paradoxical and loving way, a child who dies early will experience no disadvantage in the exquisite and timeless eternal life that follows. Of course, we will suffer and grieve their going very much. But they will taste life to the fullest, a life that we will only achieve later when we are united with them. So, we still wonder and ask why, but as we do we entrust our deceased innocent children to the God of life, and wait until – like Job – we find the answer face to face with God. For now, we say to God in the words of poet Anne Porter:

November 17, 2010

Even picky eaters will ‘gobble’ down these sprouts Gosh, I have so m a n y recipes to share that I have very little space for my weekRita ly “chat” Heikenfeld with you. I’ll Rita’s kitchen justSo say have the best Thanksgiving ever, thank the Lord for

your abundant blessings, and think of those who may not have someone to celebrate with. Set an extra plate on your table and invite them to share your tradition of food, family and friends.

Betze’s roasted Brussels sprouts with bacon

Betze, a loyal reader, found the original recipe

from Food Network Kitchens and made it her own. “Absolutely delicious,” she said. 2 (10-oz.) packages Brussels sprouts (Betze used fresh) 2 oz. thin sliced bacon, diced 1 ⁄2 cup pecans 1 ⁄2 teaspoon salt Freshly ground black pepper Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Wash and trim sprouts. Cut each sprout in half. Cook bacon and nuts in oven-proof skillet until bacon just begins to crisp and nuts are toasted. Take out of skillet and set aside. Add sprouts to skillet and season with salt and pepper. Put pan in oven and roast about 30 minutes, add bacon and nuts and continue to roast until the sprouts are cooked through and golden, about 10 to 15 minutes more. Squeeze lemon juice over. Serves four.


Yummy Waldorf salad

Evans’ pumpkin bread, which she said was very moist.

I can’t claim this as my own. My notes tell me it’s from a reader and I’ve made changes to suit my family. This is so good and perfect for your Thanksgiving table.

2 eggs 1 cup brown sugar 1 ⁄2 cup Canola oil 1 ⁄3 cup water 1 (15 ounce) pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling) 13⁄4 cups flour 1 teaspoon baking soda 1 ⁄2 teaspoon baking powder 1 ⁄2 teaspoon salt 11⁄2 teaspoons cinnamon 11⁄2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice Optional but very good: Raw or natural sugar for sprinkling on top

Mix together:

2 pounds seedless red grapes, cut into halves 2 ribs celery, sliced thin 1 cup golden or regular raisins or dried cranberries 1 cup chopped English walnuts 3 nice sized apples, peeled and cut up

For dressing mix together:

1 cup mayonnaise 1-2 tablespoons vinegar or more to taste 1 ⁄2 cup sugar 1 cup milk

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Beat eggs lightly and then mix with sugar, oil, water and pumpkin. Separately, mix flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice. Combine wet ingredients with dry ingredients only until just blended. Don’t over mix or bread will have tunnels or be tough after baking. Pour into a sprayed loaf pan. Sprinkle sugar on top. Bake for 55 to 65 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out almost clean. Don’t overbake.

Pour dressing over salad and let sit in fridge at least one hour before serving. Tip from Rita’s kitchen: If you want to prepare this ahead of time, squeeze some lemon juice or sprinkle some Fruit Fresh preservative onto chopped apples and they’ll stay snowy white.

Moist pumpkin bread

For Glenda Hatfield, who wanted a clone of Bob

My mom’s pumpkin pie

For those of you who love Frisch’s and Bob Evans’ pies, this comes pretty close. Mom made this with a homemade lard crust. 1 can, 15 oz., pure pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling) 12 oz. evaporated milk 3 ⁄4 to 1 cup sugar 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice 1 ⁄2 teaspoon cinnamon 1 ⁄2 teaspoon salt 2 large eggs, slightly beaten Whisk pumpkin, milk, sugar and spices together. Taste and add more pumpkin pie spice and cinnamon if you want. Add salt and eggs and blend. Pour into pastrylined pan. Bake at 425 degrees for 15 minutes; lower temperature to 350 degrees and bake 30-35 minutes or until set. Serves eight. Rita Nader Heikenfeld is an herbalist, educator and author.
