Delhi Twp. seeking new fiscal officer By Kurt Backscheider

DELHI TWP. — The township is accepting applications for the soon-to-be vacant fiscal officer position. Fiscal Officer Cheryl Sieve, who was elected trustee in November, will step down Dec. 31, requiring the board of trustees to appoint a new fiscal officer as her replacement. Delhi Township Administrator Pete Landrum said the appointment of a new fiscal offi-

cer will be the responsibility of the new board of trustees. He said the administration is seeking resumes from candidates now and the procLandrum ess for reviewing candidates will begin Friday, Dec. 13. It’s yet to be determined when interviews will take place, he said, noting he needs to discuss with Sieve, Trustee Mari-

jane Klug and Trustee-elect Will Oswall how they would like him to proceed. Landrum said they need to decide whether the board wants him to screen the applicants and present the board with a specified number of highest qualified candidates or whether the board members want to interview all the applicants themselves. “It’s still up in the air as far as the process,” he said. “We’ll have to make those decisions.” Ideally, he said the board will appoint a new fiscal officer as

soon as possible in January. “The fiscal officer is responsible for paying the bills and signing the paychecks,” he said. “It will be very important to start off with a fiscal officer in place.” The ultimate decision of who is named fiscal officer rests with the board, but Landrum said he’d like the candidate to have finance and budgeting experience, preferably in a government entity. He said someone with a financial background in the private sector would also

be OK, but knowledge of government rules and regulations is helpful. “Someone who is eager to learn will be welcomed,” he said. Following her election in November, Sieve said the board will follow statutory procedure in appointing a new fiscal officer.

Ecovillage establishes neighborhood library By Kurt Backscheider

EAST PRICE HILL — The Enright Ridge Urban Ecovillage has a new library. Residents of the East Price Hill neighborhood set up their own “Little Free Library” on the street over Thanksgiving weekend. Posted in front of Ecovillage resident Nancy Sullivan’s

home, the small library allows neighbors to conveniently share books and magazines with one another. “The concept is simple and can easily be duplicated in every community,” Sullivan said. “Using mostly recycled materials, creativity and a little neighborliness, your street can also have a ‘take a book, return a book’ gathering place where neighbors share their favorite

WESTWOOD — Volunteers with the Westfed Food Pantry are usually asking the community for help around the holidays, but this year they are extending a heartfelt thank you to the West Side. “Our shelves are looking pretty healthy as we go into the holiday season,” said Green Township resident Tracey Knabe, the community liaison for the pantry. “We’re in a grateful position this year and we appreciate the community’s support.” Located at Grace Lutheran Church in Westwood, the pantry serves families living in the 45211 and 45238 ZIP codes. Linda Wright, a Westwood resident who serves as trea-

surer of the pantry, said they typically distribute food to about120 families each month. The pantry opens its doors the last two Thursdays of each month, except the last Thursday in December, and Wright said donations from several community groups, churches and individuals allow them to serve area families who need a little assistance. She said in addition to regular donations from individuals, the pantry has enjoyed support this year from Grace Lutheran Church, Westwood First Presbyterian Church, Cheviot United Methodist Church, Joy Community Church, St. James Episcopal Church, St. Catharine of Siena, La Salle High School, Matthew

St. William students learning science, technology through robotics team By Kurt Backscheider

WEST PRICE HILL — Students on the robotics team at St. William School are confident in their project for this year’s First LEGO League competition. The school has two robotics teams this year – an older team of seventhand eighth-graders and a younger team of sixthand seventh-graders – and they’ve been working since September to prepare for a LEGO robotics competition at Cincinnati State Dec. 7. “This year’s theme is ‘Nature’s Fury,’ which deals with natural disasters,” said eighth-grader Lilly Witte, who is in her third year on the robotics team. “We had to identify a problem associated with a natural disaster and come up with a solution for the problem.” The First LEGO League is a robotics program for students ages 9 to 16 designed to get children excited about science and technology. The program also aims to teach students valuable employment and life skills. St. William has fielded a team for the past

Members of the First LEGO League team at St. William School have been working for three months on a project for a robotics competition at Cincinnati State.

four years. Eighth-grader Connor Hirth said the natural disaster problem the team identified and researched focused on tornadoes. He said pets can become separated from their owners during twisters, so they developed a device they dubbed “Reunite” to solve

the problem. Witte said a microchip containing data about the pet’s owner, such as their name, telephone number and address, can be implanted in the pet. She said the microchip emits a radio wave that can be tracked by rescuers, allowing them to locate the

pet and access the data about its owners. The pet can be brought to an animal shelter where the owners are contacted and informed their pet is safe and ready to be picked up, she said. Hirth said the robotics aspect of their device is accounted for in the tech-

New restrooms, storage space planned for Kuliga Park By Kurt Backscheider

GREEN TWP. — Kuliga Park is getting a new restroom and maintenance storage building. The Green Township Trustees voted Nov. 25 to accept a bid of $295,000 from the Leo J. Brielmaier Co. for the project. Green Township Public Services Director Joe

Lambing said a new 2,000squarefeet restroom building and storage facility will Lambing be built at the park, 6717 Bridgetown Road. The existing combined restroom facility and stor-

age space dates back to 1975, he said. “This will be a much nicer facility,” he said. “It’s well overdue.” Lambing said the existing building, which sits near the middle of the park, will be razed and the new one will be constructed on the same site. The new restrooms will be compliant with updated regulations set

forth in the Americans with Disabilities Act, and he said the new storage space will provide ample room for all the equipment township public services crews use for maintaining the park and its athletic fields. Work should begin in early 2014 and is expected to be wrapped up by the spring, Lambing said.

tions about the problem they identified, the solution they devised, the robotics technology incorporated and the core values of the program they upheld while working on the project. Eighth-grader Nick Ecton said the program’s core values include teamwork, having fun, learning together, sharing experiences with others and displaying gracious professionalism. He said he’s fairly confident the team will advance to the next stage of the competition. “We have a pretty good chance,” he said. Hirth added, “Since this is our third year, we’ve learned from our mistakes. We know what and what not to do.” Even if they don’t advance the students said they’ve enjoyed the past three months of this robotics team season. “It’s been fun learning about programming robots, and it’s also been neat to learn more about tornadoes,” Witte said. Hirth said he likes being on the team because of the friendships he’s made. “And you get to learn valuable life skills,” he said. tions this holiday season and the volunteers thank the community for its generosity and thoughtfulness. “A lot of people support us at Thanksgiving and Christmas, but we’re here all 12 months of the year and people have been thinking of us,” she said. “We’re very grateful to have all our ongoing community support.” Those interested in donating or learning more about the pantry can call 661-5166.

residents were bringing and borrowing books. “A number of people were trading books back and forth already,” she said. “We have several neighbors who walk their dogs or walk the street, and now they can stop by and borrow a book or bring a book for others to borrow.” Shupe said people read all sorts of books and have different tastes so she thinks the library will have a good variety of reading material. “I’m very enthusiastic about it,” she said. “I hope lots of people find out about it and use it.” Sullivan said there are between 10,000 and 14,000 registered little libraries around the world, viewable on an online map. The Ecovillage is working to register its neighborhood library, she said.

Second book details gluten-free recipes By Kamellia Soenjoto Smith

Giovanna Delli Carpini Trimpe holds her new book, a collection of her gluten-free recipes.

Do you eat gluten-free meals? “It turns out it’s a really healthy way of living,” says Delhi Township Giovanna Delli Carpini Trimpe, author of the recipe book “Holy Chow Gluten Free.” What’s the key? “Fresh products,” she explains, not processed. “And there are a lot of products that say gluten-free already.” Trimpe’s new book showcases a collection of her gluten-free recipes, as well as a few from family and friends. “This is regular, everyday food,” she points out. The chef for the St. Peter in Chains Cathedral downtown Cincinnati began working on the recipes nearly five years ago when she was asked to cook for Cincinnati Archbishop Dennis M. Schnurr. “They gave me this folder, like four or five pages, of what he could have and couldn’t have,” she recalls. “And I was stressed out.” She started reading and learned about the allergy the archbishop suffers from, called celiac disease. She revamped her recipes, then surprised him. “One night I made spaghetti and meatballs,” she says. “He looked at me and said, ‘I can’t have that.’ I said, ‘Yes you

can.’” How did she do it? “There’s really good gluten-free pasta out there,” she explains. “I got gluten-free bread and turned it into breadcrumbs, and then used it in the meatballs. “He couldn’t believe that he was eating the entire plate.” Schnurr repaid her with a testimonial in her book. “Giovanna has served our guests with delicious meals while at the same time being ‘safe’ for me,” he wrote. Trimpe was born in Venezuela to Italian parents. When she was 8 years old her mother took her back to Italy so she would know her ancestors. They lived with her grandmother for three years in a small town, Gallo Matese. “It was so rustic,” she says, describing her grandmother’s home. And there was something missing. “I asked, ‘Where’s the stove?’ She

said, ‘We don’t have one.’ “They had a woodburning oven,” she explains, made of brick and built into the wall. Cooking was an all-day chore. “By the time you finished breakfast, it was time for lunch, and then dinner.” But she had no complaints. “Oh, I loved it!” Trimpe welcomed her fans from Ohio and Northern Kentucky at two book signings. The first was Saturday, Nov. 16, at Joseph Beth bookstore in Hyde Park. The second was Dec. 8, after the 11 a.m. Mass at St. Peter in Chains Cathedral. Refreshments were served. You can also ask questions and buy her books online at “You can take just about any recipe,” Trimpe writes, “and turn it into a gluten-free recipe without your family and friends ever knowing the difference.”

Lanes closed on Queen City Avenue for MSD work

The Metropolitan Sewer District of Greater Cincinnati is beginning to install stormwater sewers along Queen City Avenue and along cross streets between Sunset Avenue and the Queen City Bypass. Work is anticipated to be complete by summer. The work is part of the Lick Run Project to reduce combined sewer overflows into the Mill Creek. Construction will occur primarily Monday through Saturday during daylight hours. MSD’s construction contractor is Sunesis Construction. Roughly 3,900 linear

feet of new stormwater sewers will be constructed in the public right of way along the north side of Queen City Avenue, as well as along Tillie Avenue and Champlain Street. Short legs will also be constructed on Wyoming and Sunset avenues to prepare for future stormwater sewers on those roads. During the majority of construction, the two westbound lanes of Queen City Avenue will be closed, and the two eastbound lanes will be converted to two-way traffic – one lane in each direction. For additional information about the project, contact MSD Engineering Customer Service at 5573594 or MSD.Communications, or visit

Theater group lauded for renovation of Glenmore Bowl By Kurt Backscheider

CHEVIOT — The Drama Workshop’s efforts to turn a former bowling alley into a live performance venue has caught the eye of the Cincinnati Preservation Association. The preservation association recently presented the West Side theater organization a 2013 Rehabilitation Award for its renovation of the former Glenmore Bowl, 3716 Glenmore Ave. Ray Persing, president of The Drama Workshop, and theater group members John Netzley, Karen Romero and Elaine Volker accepted the award during a ceremony in November. Persing said the building, now called The Glenmore Playhouse, was opened in 1928 as Bueche Lanes by Lawrence and William Bueche. Lawrence Bueche was already established in the movie theater business and his goal was to set his younger brother up in business, Persing said. “Their father, a master mason, built the structure for them,” he said. “Because they were concerned that bowling may just be another passing fad, the building was constructed so that it could be converted into a movie theater should bowling

not work out.” Bowling proved to be a hit and the alley remained in operation for more than 80 years. Persing said the building passed through several hands over the course of eight decades, but Les Horstman and his family had the strongest connection to the bowling house. The Horstman family had at least one family member working at the bowling alley in some capacity for more than 50 years, Persing said. Glenmore Bowl closed for good in August 2010, and the theater group’s membership voted in April 2011 to buy the property. “The Drama Workshop had been looking for a permanent home for many years, and the size, configuration and location of the building fit the needs of the group very well,”

Persing said. “Mary Stone, then The Drama Workshop’s president, spearheaded the plan which saved the building from demolition.” He said the theater group worked with Cheviot Savings Bank, Cheviot city officials and neighborhood businesses, particularly Rebold, Rosenacker and Sexton Funeral Home, to enable the purchase of the building in November 2011. Mike Sexton and Jerry Rosenacker of the funeral home were excited to help save the historic building, which sits down the street from their business. “We’re happy that The Drama Workshop saved the building, rather than having the space become another parking lot,” Sexton said. The theater group began renovating the build-

ing in early 2012. Persing said members removed all bowling equipment and gutted the building. They replaced decades-old wiring and installed a theatrical lighting system. A 22-feet high arched ceiling, hidden for years, was uncovered. Windows that had been covered by paneling were exposed, providing natural light in the new lobby area. A stage was constructed where the pinsetters once stood, he said. The preservation association commended the group for exposing and preserving many of the original building features, he said. More than 100 volunteers have contributed more than 8,000 hours converting the building to a theater, which opened in October 2012, Persing said. In addition to theater group members’ efforts,

he said T.J. Williams provided electrical assistance, Give Back Cincinnati volunteers installed dozens of sheets of drywall and the Cheviot Westwood Community Association donated carpeting. “The Cheviot Westwood Community Association is glad to be a part of The Drama Workshop’s success,” said Ray Kroner, president of the community association. “We know the impact community theater has on its surrounding area, and we welcome The Drama Workshop’s enthusiasm and contribution to our neighborhood.” Persing said the playhouse is still a work in progress and they want to install a handicap ramp, handicap-accessible restrooms and upgrade the heating and air conditioning system. “We’re trying to do this while remaining true to

the character and history of the building, and are thrilled that the Cincinnati Preservation Association has recognized that,” he said. “With the help of our members and the Cheviot community, we’re making steady headway on making this a great performance venue.” He said the group set a production attendance record with its recent staging of the musical “Nunsense,” and the number of season ticket holders has more than doubled in the last year. They’re starting to discuss adding more performances, he said. “Word is getting out that there’s something special happening here,” Persing said. “It’s very exciting.” Visit for more information about the theater group.

Two-time state diving qualifier Mitch Godar headlines the Elder swimand-dive team this season. Godar holds both the six- and 11-dive record at Elder and broke the 18-year-old Cincinnati Private Pool Swim League record last summer. On the swimming side coach John Book has 17 swimmers on the roster this year, headlined by Ben Hayhow, Josh Patty, Brendan Burke and Holden Kelley. Juniors Adam Vale and Jack Smith, along with freshman Paxton Kelley will add some depth.

La Salle

Mike Lienhart enters his 23rd year coaching the Lancers. Coming off a season that featured a lot of first-year swimmers, the Lancers are primed to turn some heads this season. Senior Julian Souder was a district qualifier in both the 100- and 200-yard freestyle events last season, as well as being a part of the district qualifying 200- and 400-yard freestyle relay teams. Junior Sam Redd is back after reaching districts last season in the 100 backstroke. Redd was also part of the previously mentioned 400-yard relay team as well as the district qualifying 200 medley relay team. Fellow junior Drew Meister was a member of the 200-yard freestyle relay team, 200 medley team and a district qualifier in the 100-yard breaststroke event where he placed 32nd. Look for junior Stephen Cosco and

senior Andrew Hester to make an impact this season in their respective events. “This year’s team brings plenty of experience and has a great drive toward improvement,” Lienhart said. “They have worked hard in the offseason. The team has bought into the idea that training harder and smarter will get results in the end.”

Mother of Mercy

Kim Hogue is the coach of the Bobcats. Look for contributions from both Lauren and Megan Buse, along with Courtney Reder. No other information was available before press deadline.

Oak Hills

Katie Hunter is the coach of both the boys and girls’ swim teams at Oak Hills. The boys are led by a group of seniors who have stuck together since their freshmen years, which includes Brian Walker, John Wohlfrom, Spencer Dennis and Nick McManis. Look for senior Nathan Smith, sophomore Jacob Savard and freshman Jared Cox to contribute. As for the girls, juniors Hailey Ryan and Allie Robertson, along with sophomore Candice Sheehan and Sarah Savard to lead the way. Freshman Cara Roche is one to watch throughout the year. “We really struggled last year,” Hunter said of her girls team that featured zero seniors last season. “We have a bigger team this year and we definitely look a lot better this year than last.” Both teams opened the season with wins over Colerain Dec. 4.

While it’s too early to know exactly what the freshman and sophomore classes will bring to the pool, Grant House is one freshman Brower expects to contribute immediately. “I think the state will find out right away he will be one of our better swimmers and one of the better swimmers in the state.”

straight state title and the 14th in the past 15 years. Last season’s state title was won with a seniorladen squad, but that won’t be the case in 2014 as Brower will need some contributions from his underclassmen. The good news for him is he has swimmers like Mitchell Frey, who was part of a state championship relay team last season, and Grant Carr, who played a role in a thirdplace relay team, back in the pool this season. Both juniors were Enquirer first-team all-stars as sophomores. “I think it’s always good to have some guys that have been there,” Brower said. “I think it’s something, maybe by nature, they are a little more relaxed by the whole thing and that will rub off on the newcomers. With that being said, by the time the state championships roll around, those guys will have been in some big meets and we will try to treat it like any other meet physically and mentally.” Senior Kevin Mosko and sophomore Matt

Seniors Lindsey Niehaus and Kelley Kraemer return after being a part of the state qualifying 200-yard medley relay team last season. Niehaus was also a state qualifier in the 100-yard backstroke where she finished 17th. Other seniors include Maggie Sreudiger, Maddie Luebbers, Alyssa Lyons, Lizzie Bruewer and Ketelyn Walter. Sophomore Jessica Hayhow, Anne’s daughter, will look to play a big role in both the 200 freestyle and 200 medley relay events this season. “We graduated five seniors last year so we are a little bit on the rebuilding side, but we do have some good seniors returning,” the elder Hayhow said. “We have some younger girls that are stepping up and a good group of leaders in our senior class.”

St. Xavier

Coach Jim Brower and his Bombers are looking for their fifth

record holding 400-yard freestyle relay event. Unfortunately for Rielag, two members of that relay team graduated and another didn’t return to the team. Rielag is hoping for a special year from his girls’ team. Senior Shelby Nolan headlines a team that is comprised of mainly freshmen. Nolan will swim mostly sprint events and anchor all three relay teams.

When the old Taylor High School was torn down, inside was the swimming pool. As nice as the new facilities are there isn’t a pool on campus anymore, which has really hurt coach Don Rielag’s numbers for the 2013-14 season. A 35-minute drive to practice to the Melrose YMCA in Clifton is a big reason his numbers are down from 35 swimmers last season to 15 this season. Senior Nick Wasserbauer was a district qualifier last season in both the 100-yard freestyle and 100-yard backstroke events, along with the Yellow Jackets’ school-



Joining her on those relays are freshmen Abby Rapien, Izzy Murray and Lydia Wasserbauer. “We are really hoping to knock the lights out on some things,” Rielag said. As far as individual events go, Rapien will swim the distance freestyle events, while Murray will swim the 100 backstroke and 100 butterfly and Wasserbauer will swim the breaststroke.

Post’s Pearl Harbor ceremonies go back 60 years

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Our first Christmas present

Robert L. Morgan Bridgetown


Editor: Dick Maloney,, 248-7134


It was the Christmas of 1960. We were just a couple of young married kids planning our first Christmas together. Broke, but happy. God and Santa had already blessed us with the ultimate Christmas Gift, the Dec. 2 birth of our first daughter, Star. As we were completing our holiday shopping at our favorite Kroger store, we were drawn like a magnet to a counter in the rear. High on the top shelf, all alone as though forgotten, or misplaced, was a small stuffed animal. It was a little yellowishgreen dog, with multi-colored spots on it. It was so ugly, that it was cute. We just knew it was meant to be our daughter’s first Christmas gift. Over time, Star named him Spotty and would never go to bed without him. Spotty went through years of abuse. He suffered milk spills, vomit, rips, lost stuffing, mending and finally ended up just a combination of stitched together rags. Not to be deterred, she placed Spotty’s remains in a little cloth bag, and to this day, that bag remains in a prominent place on her bed As we sit here 53 years later, watching the lights dance around our Christmas tree, we can’t help, but reflect back to a time when the mystical hand of a “Christmas Spirit” guided us to this precious little stuffed animal. Our first Christmas present. On our first Christmas, as a family.


Star Morgan with her first Christmas gift, a stuffed yellow and green dog. THANKS TO ROBERT MORGAN

Just before 8 a.m. Dec. 7, 1941, Japan bombed the American naval base at Pearl Harbor near Honolulu, HA. It was a day off for the soldiers. Many were still in bed others were eating breakfast or attending church services. The blazing conflict lasted two hours, killing 2,000 American and injuring another 1,000. Twenty ships, including eight battleships, and 200 airplanes were destroyed. The Japanese also lost men, aircraft and submarines, but hoped this vicious attack would keep the Americans out of the Pacific. Instead, the next day Congress declared war on Japan and America entered the twoyear-old war. Four years later, on Aug. 6, 1945, America dropped an Atomic bomb on Hiroshima and the Japanese surrendered on Sept. 2. 1945. On Aug. 23, 1994, Congress designated Dec. 7 Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day by Public Law 103-308. Each community remembers the day in different ways. The Chambers Hautman Budde American Legion Post 534 from Riverside has been holding a special service on the Ohio River on the first Sunday in December since 1954. On Sunday, Dec. 1, members and friends assembled

at the Post at 4618 River Road at 9 a.m. to watch a documentary and slide show of Pearl Harbor, while eating Betty Kamuf COMMUNITY PRESS coffee and doughnuts. GUEST COLUMNIST At 10:30 there was a Flag Retirement service, where they burned flags in a fire pot that have been dropped off at the post throughout the year. After the flag ceremony, the group assembled for the parade across River Road to the Anderson Ferry. The color guards led the parade followed by the American Legion Posts, 37, 425, 484, VFW Post 10380, Army/Navy Union, Delhi Township Veterans Association, Catholic War Veterans 1492, Viet Nam Veterans Motor Cycle Club, Voiture 40/8, bagpipers from the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office, American Legion Auxiliary units, 484,450 534, American Legion 4th District, and American Legion 4 District Auxiliary president, an Army Reserves unit and many family and friends. They march on the Anderson Ferry so they are there at 11:55, the time the bombing started. The chaplain offers a prayer followed by a three-round gun solute,

the same as done at burials. “Echo Taps” sounded as Chief Navy Musician Don Bill sounded the "Taps” from the river bank and Steve Bow echoed them on the ferry. After “Taps” each organization dropped a wreath into the river to honor those who died that day. After the ferry ceremony the group went back to Post 534 for a hot meal. Commander Mike Bender said, “Each year it seems to get bigger and better, once an organization attends they usually make it a point to come back the next year. We used to have a fly over that day out of Wright Patterson Air Force Base, but since 9/11/2001 it is not allowed that close to the CVG. If you happen to drive by the Post on Sept. 11 you will also see that we will never forget to honor those who perished in the terrorist attack on Sept. 11 2001.” The $600-$1,000 cost for the day was provided by donations from local businesses and the Anderson Ferry. Anyone wishing to donate can mail donation to P.O.Box 33115 Cincinnati Ohio 45233, marked for Pearl Harbor. Betty Kamuf is a winner of Griffin Yeatman Award for Historical Preservation.

LaRosa’s dedicated to making a difference in community Cincinnati remains the 10th poorest city in the country, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. Carla, a Cincinnati resident who works 10-hour days, six days a week, while taking care of eight greatMichael nieces and LaRosa nephews COMMUNITY PRESS counts on the GUEST COLUMNIST extra help she receives from the Freestore Foodbank to care for and put food on the table for her family. “It’s a great help. It means a lot to me. It helps to stretch the rest of the food. The Freestore Foodbank means everything to me. It’s part of my survival,” she said. The holiday season is upon

us, and our city must continue supporting those in need now and year-round. I am proud to live in Cincinnati and have much gratitude towards those organizations that devote their time, energy, and livelihood to help individuals and families in our city, especially the Freestore Foodbank. The poor and the struggling are our neighbors, Carla is our neighbor. People in our community must face the harsh reality of hunger and food scarcity daily. Even those that are fortunate enough to have jobs still struggle to make ends meet as the cost of food and expenses continue to increase. My family, our team members, and our guests have grown up in this community. To look at our neighborhoods – in our backyards, and see the struggles families have to face in order to make ends meet, is

disconcerting. It is our responsibility to come together to help those in need. We as a community can work as a team to fight hunger. I regularly visit our 63 pizzerias, from our Boudinot Avenue location to Price Hill to Anderson Township to Forest Park, to meet with guests and team members, to listen to their stories about their families, their interests, their successes and sometimes, their hardships. While many families who frequent our pizzerias can afford a hot meal, I have heard of challenging times when putting food on the table was a struggle for them, their families or friends. During this holiday season, LaRosa’s is once again proud to support the Freestore Foodbank of Cincinnati to fight hunger right here in our own backyard. Serving more than

300,000 people annually in 20 counties across Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana. The Freestore Foodbank is the Tristate’s largest foodbank distributing more that 19 million meals annually. The organization provides emergency food assistance to mre than 7,200 individuals per month from its Customer Connection Center in Over-the-Rhine alone. Each of our pizzerias ar selling Buddy Cards (our twofor-one pizza discount card) for the benefit of the Freestore Foodbank. We will donate $5 from the sale of every $10 Buddy Card directly to the Freestore Foodbank and the nourishment and comfort they provide to those who truly need help in our community. Ultimately, our contribution will help support the Freestore Foodbank’s annual goal to dis-

tribute 16.2 million pounds of food to meet our region’s growing demand. We hope you’ll join us in our efforts to surpass our 2012 effort of 7,000 cards sold for Cincinnati. Here’s how you can help: » Buy a LaRosa’s Buddy Card by Dec. 31. For a full list of locations, visit » Donate to the Freestore Foodbank of Cincinnati. Visit or www.thefoodbankdayton. Food brings people together and can build a community. No child, person or family should go hungry. Please join me and the LaRosa’s family in the fight against hunger. Together we can feed our neighbors in need. Michael T. LaRosa is chief executive officer of LaRosa’s Inc.

CH@TROOM Dec. 4 question What is your favorite Christmas/holiday song, TV show, movie or performance? Why do you like it?

“My favorite Christmas song is a combination of ‘Peace on Earth’ and ‘Little Drummer Boy.’ It was a duet done by a unique collaboration of Bing Crosby and David Bowie. “My favorite movie has to be ‘A Christmas Story’ as it is timeless although set in the 1940s. It is repeated every year and watched by a new generation annually. Go figure!” T.D.T.

“‘Father Christmas’ by the Kinks!”

church on Christmas Eve. Merry Christmas, everyone!”

“’The Little Drummer Boy’ is a favorite because he hadn’t any material thing to give to Jesus, so he played for him, giving what he could give. The pa-rumpa-pum-pum is also a great onomatopoeia”

“Albert Finney’s ‘Scrooge’ is our favorite holiday movie. It’s a musical version of ‘A Christmas Carol’ and was made in the 1970s. It can be checked out at the local library. The best version of this story ever made!”

“‘White Christmas’ and ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’ are my two favorite Christmas classic movies, but nothing is better than singing ‘Silent Night’ at the end of our candlelight service at

“My favorites are all the ridiculous and boring commercials because I know they end Dec. 26.”

“’Pine Tree! Coming into Pine Tree!’ ‘White Christmas!’ Best Christmas song, best Christmas performer, best Christmas movie. “Bing Crosby is the top of the Christmas triumvirate of Bing, Perry Como and Nat King Cole. And he didn’t need Auto Tune! The movie has great scenes, songs and classic performers. “Rosemary, Vera, Bing and Danny bring music, laughter, dance and that great warm and fuzzy Christmas spirit that we all seek this time of year. I’m sure everyone’s feelings about this movie are ‘Mutual, I’m sure!’”

L IFE Making the (holidays) cut COMMUNITY PRESS


Tree farms are a growing business as families renew their holiday traditions of choosing and cutting their own Christmas trees. While you may have to drive a bit to find them these tree farms are worth the trip to put you in the holiday spirit.

Hill Top Pines CAMP SPRINGS, KY. Since 1977, the Ritter family has offered a chance to hike to the top of their hills in southern Campbell County to cut down and pick out the family Christmas tree. Nestled between the base of two hills and 25 acres of mostly Scotch pines is a wood shelter with a fireplace where people set off from the entrance on foot in search of a tree. The farm is near 7379 Stonehouse Road (Ky. 1997), and south of the intersection with 10 Mile Road. Tom Ritter is the eldest of five brothers operating the family tree farm founded by their father, Art Ritter, who died in 2007. Walking up the hillsides in search of a tree has become a tradition for many, Tom Ritter said. Saws and tree shaking are available. All trees cost $30. Hours: 9 a.m.-dark Friday, Saturday and Sunday and noon-5 p.m. Monday-Thursday. For information call 513-673-8415. – Chris Mayhew/The Community Recorder

John T. Nieman Nursery ROSS John T. Nieman Nursery, 3215 Hamilton New London Road, has been in operation since 1962 with 125 acres, growing about 70,000 trees of various varieties. Customers looking for the perfect tree can wind their way through rows to cut a tree down themselves with their own saw, borrow one or ask an employee (or grandchild) to cut it. They will also load the tree onto the car as well, and if you need a stand, they sell four sizes of stands that they’ll cut your tree to fit.

Meinhardt’s Burlington Tree Farm BURLINGTON, KY. Nestled in the country, but not too far from city life, stands 193 acres of farm land owned by Jennifer Meinhardt of Burlington. Since 1994, she has invited the public to walk through several acres to pick and cut down “their perfect tree.” If you can’t cut it yourself, then someone will be on hand to help. They’ll even drive down and haul the tree back to your car. After cutting, folks are invited into the one story gray house settled cozily on the property. It’s heated by an old fashioned pot-bellied stove and decorated in Christmas decor – all available for purchase. Guests are treated to hot chocolate and a homed cookie. Trees available include Scotch Pine and Blue Spruce. There are also pre-harvested Fraser Fir from North Carolina. Trees cost $45 and up, saw and tree shaking included. Hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Friday and Saturday, through Dec. 15. The secret to finding the perfect tree? Meinhardt says: “That’s the most funny thing. Every tree is perfect in its own way. I pick something no one would buy and for the little house and decorate it every year. It’s always something so flawed it would be thrown in the burn pile. And every year, people come in and comment on how great it looks. That convinces me there’s no such thing as a bad tree.” – Melissa Stewart/The Community Recorder

Miclberg Tree Farm 14300 SALEM CREEK ROAD, CRITTENDEN, KY. They’ve “been here 10 years,” selling trees on an acre of land, owner Mike Schierberg says. The roads leading to this southern Boone County farm, located near the Kenton and Grant county lines, wind through the rural country side. Here, folks can cut their own tree or Schierberg said he can cut a tree for them. The price for a Douglas fir tree ranges from $40-75. This tree farm is unique for being “non-unique,” Schierberg laughs. “There’s nothing special other than fresh grown Christmas trees.” Finding the perfect tree, though, is personal. “Some people want them fluffy and wide open and some people like them tight and bunched up together,” he said. “It’s all a personal thing.” – Stephanie Salmons/The Community Recorder

Rector Ridge Tree Farm MORNING VIEW, KY. Grover Holbrook opened his tree farm in 1994, 10 years after planting his first set of pine trees at 3311Rector Road, off Madison Pike between Independence and Piner. Less than 6 percent, or 3.5 acres, of the 62-acre property is dedicated to growing 250 evergreen trees. Wild turkey sometimes strut through the bucolic acreage and deer can also be found among the trees. Customers can drive cars back along the lane, but manager Todd Casson said most people just park at the front and walk back through the 100 yards of live trees. Rector Ridge Tree Farm will be open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each Saturday and Sunday until Christmas. This rural Kenton County farm features blue spruce, Canaan fir, concolor fir, Douglas fir, Norway spruce, white pine, and Canadian hemlock they sell exclusively for yard planting. Trees range from 7 to 14 feet, and prices start at $10 and go up $5 per foot. For information, call 859-412-7799 or 859-620-8115.

Koch Christmas Trees Reily Township This family-owned farm in Reily Township has been in operation since 2001.

Customers can bring their own equipment to fell their trees, but Casson keeps a handsaw on the property if people need to use it. He’ll even cut trees down for them. Visitors can actually choose trees year-round, and Casson or Holbrook will tag it for future purchase. They’ll also help load the tree. To find the perfect tree, Casson said, “Pick what you like. At a cut lot you want to see how fresh the tree is and what it looks like all the way around, but on our lot you can see exactly how it looks in the field and you know it’s fresh.” – Amy Scalf/The Community Recorder

Whitetail Acres Tree Farm BROOKVILLE, IND. Kevin and Alice Priessman’s Whitetail Acres at 9127 Cooley Road started in 1984 as a Christmas tree farm and boasts 170 acres of locally grown trees. Some families tailgate in the parking lot and make a day of it. Once you are ready, you take a hayride through the fields to scope out your tree. When you see an area where you want to look, you just stop the wagon and get off. The farm provides saws for cut-yourown and will pick up the tree and bring it in for you once it’s cut or you can drag it out to the wagon trail and wait to be picked up. There are lots of Whitetail staff members in the fields to help if you

want it. Once you pick your tree, Whitetail staff will even up the trunk, drill a hole in the bottom for a stand, shake it out so the loose needles fall away and then tie it up and secure it to your vehicle for the trip home. There are also fresh wreaths & roping made daily, as well as mailbox huggies, swags and crosses . Cut tree species include Canaan, Fraser and Douglas fir; Scotch and white pine; and blue spruce and Norway spruce. Balled and burlapped species include Douglas fir, white pine and Norway and white spruce. Trees range from $19 to $250 depending on size and variety. Whitetail Acres also has a herd of more than a dozen reindeer - that’s more than Santa. You can also enjoy a free hayride, a bonfire, and if you’re hungry, there is popcorn, apple cider and hot chocolate in the gift shop. The farm also has indoor restroom facilities. Call 765647-0528 or visit for hours or information. What’s the secret to finding the perfect tree? “It’s personal taste. You should think about the ornaments you plan to use. Make sure you walk all the way around the tree and look at the overall shape. You can gauge the height by comparing the tree’s height to yours. Don’t hesitate to ask the staff for advice or help.” – Jennie Key/The Community Press

This weekend we go to Corsi’s tree farm with all the kids to cut down our Christmas trees.

A simple country pleasure!

This 7.5-acre plot behind Renew Community Church, 2129 W. North Bend Road, will be the site of 24 homes built for the 2014 Citirama in College Hill. FILE PHOTO

Builders named for Witherby Meadows Citirama site The Home Builders Association of Greater Cincinnati, in partnership with the City of Cincinnati, has announced the first four area builders who plan to participate in the 12th Citirama Sept. 13-21, 2014, at Witherby Meadows in College Hill. Additional builders are expected to announce their participation in the award-winning show in the next few weeks. The following have already selected four of the six available show lots: Drees Homes, Maronda Homes, Meierjohan Building Group and Potterhill Homes. Meierjohan Building Group will serve as the developer of the new community. Show home prices are expected to range from $160,000 to $240,000. Show homes typically include numerous promotional upgrades provided by suppliers, which are included at no additional cost to the buyer. Witherby Meadows is located off of Connecticut Avenue, less than a mile from the College Hill Business District (at North Bend Road and

Hamilton Avenue). The new urban community will consist of 24 single family homes on cul-desac streets. “Now is a great time for those persons interested in buying a new home to design one that reflects their own needs and wants,” said Dan Dressman, executive director. “Contracting with one of the Citirama builders early on allows a buyer to determine exactly what they want their home to look like and receive all the show upgrades at no additional cost. Having the Citirama label on a home provides a decided competitive re-sale advantage and the show property tax abatements can be significant,” he added. Homes built in the show qualify for the city of Cincinnati’s new home 10- or 15-year tax abatement. There are no other communities in the region that offer this type of incentive for new home purchases. Visit for specific details on the city’s new home property tax abatement program.

Miami Twp. thanks Sykes for more than 30 years of service By Kurt Backscheider


MIAMI TWP. — For the

first time in nearly three decades, the township board of trustees will be without Joe Sykes when it begins a new year of governing in January. The longtime trustee is retiring at the end of December, after 28 years of service to the township. “I’m going to miss the camaraderie of serving with the Beck other trustees,” Sykes said. “I think we have two of the finest trustees you could find in Paul Beck and Rininger Jack Rininger. “I’ll also miss all the employees of the township. I can’t say enough about the Sykes great people who work for Miami Township,” he said. A native of the Three Rivers area and a U.S. Air Force veteran, Sykes, 82, has dedicated more than 30 years of his life to public service. He was a member of the Three Rivers Local School District Board of Education for nine years – from 1976 to 1985, and he first became a Miami Township trustee in 1985. He said the township is a great place to live and raise a family, and he chose to serve the township because he wanted to make sure it remained a strong community. “This community gave me so much,” he said. “I wanted to do what I could to give back and make it a nice place to live.” In addition to his role with the township, Sykes has served on dozens of governmental committees and been active in several community organizations. He was the Hamilton County Township Association’s president for 10 years and was named the association’s Public Servant of the Year in 1999. He’s also served as president and board member of the Ohio Township Association, was a member of the Ohio Kentucky Indiana Regional Council of Governments executive

Miami Township officials invite the community to join them in wishing Trustee Joe Sykes well in his retirement. A retirement ceremony is set for 3-6 p.m. Friday, Dec. 27, at the Miami Township Community Center, 3780 Shady Lane. The event will honor Sykes for the more than 30 years he’s dedicated to serving the community. Officials and colleagues will share stories and reflections of his service at 4:15 p.m.

committee and was appointed to the Ohio Telecommunications Advisory Council and the Ohio Solid Waste Management Advisory Council. At the county level, he was chairman of the Hamilton County General Health District Advisory Council, chairman of the county’s Emergency Management Executive Directory, member of the county’s Homeland Security Commission and served on the executive committee to form a regional storm water district. Trustee Jack Rininger said Sykes is a straight shooter with a wealth of governmental knowledge and his experience will be missed on the board. “Joe has been a tremendous asset to the township. I feel very fortunate to have been able to serve on the board with him,” Rininger said. “There are some people who become a trustee because they have aspirations of a higher political office, but he didn’t. He’s been completely committed to Miami Township and our residents.” Trustee Paul Beck has served with Sykes for all 28 years of his tenure on the board and said he’s been a great colleague. “He’s a hard worker who is dedicated to the township, and under his leadership we’ve enjoyed substantial growth in the past 28 years,” Beck said. Sykes said he’s proud to have represented the county on the Ohio township association and he’s glad the township is in good shape financially, but he’s probably most proud of the role he played in helping the township build its “crown jewel” – the community center and fire station on Shady Lane, he said. “We’ve been able to do a lot for the community,” he said.
