BECAUSE COMMUNITY MATTERS

Parking issues are hindering restaurant By Forrest Sellers fsellers@communitypress.com

HYDE PARK — Efforts to open a Korean restaurant in Hyde Park remain stalled. Representatives for 3501 Seoul, which is located at 3501 Erie Ave., have once again sought support from the Hyde Park Neighborhood Council. Council, though, remains opposed to a proposed parking plan for the restaurant. With a limited amount of parking spaces in the area, the restaurant has asked for council’s support for a variance that would permit parking at 3614 Marburg Ave. This would violate the residential zoning requirement at that location, said Hyde Park Neighborhood Council board member Jeff Lovelace. Council voted against the proposal. The city, though, will ultimately make the decision on whether to approve a plan for the restaurant. “It sets a precedent for others,” said Lovelace, arguing that approving the plan could potentially lead to other businesses making similar requests. “We know parking is a struggle in East Hyde Park. (However) we don’t want to open the floodgates.” Lovelace said the Marburg site is zoned “single family” and that off-site commercial parking is not permitted in that area. Additionally, council board member Carl Uebelacker said the zoning code specifies that off-site parking must be within 600 feet of the business. Uebelacker said not only does the restaurant exceed this distance but “realistically it’s not functional.” Customers would have to walk more than two and a quarter blocks to get

to their cars, and that isn’t practical, he said. Uebelacker echoed Lovelace’s concerns regarding the residential character of the Lovelace neighborhood. “If it were to be approved it essentially means any single-family zoned lot within 600 feet of a business district (could) be used Uebelacker for business parking,” he said. “It decimates the protection of the single family zoning district.” Last year, Shelly Choi, the owner of the restaurant, had asked the Hyde Park Neighborhood Council to consider a zoning variance for off-site parking. At the time, 27 parking spots were needed for the restaurant, which will be located at the former Sunshine Fine Foods building. Council did not make an official decision but conceded that parking is a problem in the area. Choi operates the Korea House in Symmes Township. Hyde Park would be her second restaurant location. While Choi owns the property at 3501 Erie, she has not begun renovation work. “She is at a standstill,” said Marsha Walsh, a friend who spoke on Choi’s behalf to council last year and is helping Choi in opening the new restaurant. “She has quite an investment there (and) wants to look at all measures in order to open (the restaurant)” said Walsh.

Ault Park to get a garden makeover By Lisa Wakeland

lwakeland@communitypress.com

It can be difficult to imagine a lush, colorful garden when right now the space is an empty patch of dirt. But planning is well underway for the new Great Lawn Garden at Ault Park. Last year the Cincinnati Parks removed dead or dying trees and shrubs from the west end of the main lawn, below the pavilion and in between the rose garden and the adopt-a-plot gardens. “It’s a significant area of the park so we wanted to redesign it and make it a visual space that was pleasant and easy to maintain,” said Jennifer Harten, east region manager for the Cincinnati Parks. As the parks department was brainstorming ideas for the now barren space, they brought the concept to the Ault Park Advisory Council, a nonprofit organization of volunteers who help preserve and improve the park. Rudy Siegel, an advisory council board member, said they’re always looking for ways to enhance Ault Park and involve more people from neighborhoods around the park. “This was a perfect opportunity to engage in a project ... we could take to the surrounding community for a fundraising effort because this is something we can all do together,” he said. The Ault Park Advisory Council is trying to raise $15,000, which will be matched by the Cincinnati Parks, and they have about $3,500 left to raise. Siegel said they’re also hoping to recruit volunteers to plant the shrubs, trees and flowers this spring. Much of the pre-planting

work — regrading, drainage and irrigation — is finished, Harten said, and they installed a new fence on top of the curved wall to keep park visitors safe from the steep drop at the back of the new garden. Ault Park horticulturalist Dave Roberts created the design and said he wanted to reflect some of the historical plantings in the new garden. He incorporated flowering cherry trees, like the ones lining Observatory Avenue; holly plants, like those at the opposite end of the lawn near the stairs to

the pavilion; and other shrubs and perennials found throughout the 224-acre park. “I didn’t want to sacrifice too much of the lawn because that’s an integral event space ... and I wanted to keep it open to maintain the view,” he said. “It’s low maintenance and will have color throughout the whole summer. I hope people enjoy the added design elements of color and texture — it’s all in place there. It will be a four-season garden.” Siegel said they also enlisted the help of Joan Heiob Moyers, owner of Garden Girl Creative, who helped bring the landscape plan to life with her design. “One of the things that’s so See GARDEN, Page A2

The chief legal officer of a Mason company has had his license suspended for a third time, this time after the Ohio Supreme Court ruled he continued to practice law while his license was suspended. In a 4-3 ruling Jan. 14, the Ohio Supreme Court ruled that David E. Troller engaged in attorney misconduct by practicing law for six years while his license was suspended and engaged in conduct that adversely reflects on his fitness to practice law. The court suspended Troller’s license for two years, with a six-month stay provided he meet certain conditions. Troller, of Terrace Park, served as chief legal officer of the Clopay Corp. from April 2002 to April 2012. In December 2005, the Supreme Court sus-

Troller received another suspension in May 2006 for failing to meet his continuing legal educational requirements for 2003-2004 and to pay a penalty for not meeting his education requirements for 2001-2002.

Mariemont school board president retires after 12 years

Michael Bauer, Parker Bailey and Mikhel Hawkins, parents of Kilgour Elementary students, attend the school's silent auction. THANKS TO MARY WELSH SCHLUETER

Kilgour auction raises more than $38,000 The Kilgour Elementary School Parent Teacher Association recently conducted its seventh annual Silent Auction at the Redmoor on Mt. Lookout Square. This year’s event, themed “Inspire,” raised more than $38,000. All proceeds benefit the students through enrichment programs, educational materials, technology or field trips. “Although the auction is first and foremost a fundraiser for our school, it also is a fantastic opportunity for the entire school family to join together and enhance the strong bonds of our community. We look forward to it each year.” said Angela Cook-Frazier, principal. More than 300 Kilgour friends, family, teachers and staff attended. Donated auction items vary year to year, but typically include gift certificates to local restaurant, stores, services and events, as well as sport memorabilia, student art projects, vacations, camps, and parties. The chairwomen of this year’s event were Andrea Lukin and Lisa Crawford, CoPresidents- Elect of the PTA.

Mariemont City School District Board of Education president Peggy Braun recently retired after 12 years of service to the district as a member of the board of education. The board meeting on Dec.12 was her last as a member of the board of education. The district’s administrative team attended the meeting to bid a fond farewell to someone they have worked closely with for more than a decade. “It’s difficult to believe that we’re saying goodbye to you as a board member,” said Superintendent Steven Estepp to Braun. “The administrative team has always felt tremendously supported by you, and I want to personally thank you for all that you have done for me during my transition into our school district.” The district presented Braun with an engraved brick, which will be included in the spirit walkway outside of Mariemont High School. Other board members also spoke to Braun’s leadership and friendship. “‘Thank you’ seems obvious but it doesn’t seem appropriate. We don’t do this job for each other - the real reward comes in June when we watch the students walk the track and graduate. And to my count there have

been about 1,500 graduates in the 12 years that Peggy has served on the board,” said Bill Flynn, fellow Board of Education member. “Peggy has a quietly keen mind. Her decision making always comes back to ‘Will it advance the academic program of our district and will it help students succeed?’. Her calm, steady leadership helped get us through a compressed six months of bringing in a new superintendent and treasurer, and she did it all with such grace. Thank you, Peggy.” Braun and her husband, Karl, have three children, all of whom have graduated from Mariemont High School. Braun lives in Mariemont and has been involved with volunteering with the district for nearly two decades. “I’ve had the opportunity to work with some tremendous people. The board members have been good friends and good peers; they bring so much to the table and their hearts are always in the right place,” said Braun. “We’ve also had some great administrators, who have always truly been professionals. I will miss this. It’s been one of the joys of my life to serve this community, these children and these families.”

Withrow to kick off ECC play with Drake By Scott Springer

sspringer@communitypress.com

HYDE PARK — To find his next football coach, Withrow High School Athletic Director Darren Braddix had a short walk up a flight of stairs and then down a hallway. That’s where physical education teacher Ryan Drake’s office is located. On staff since 2002, the 41-year-old was also part of Doc Gamble’s coaching crew at Withrow from 20032011. The last two seasons, he’s been with George Kontsis at Walnut Hills. The Colerain Township resident will now take over for Jim Place and lead the Tigers into the Eastern Cincinnati Conference. “We’re going to fit great in that league,” Drake said. “I’ve been around it the last two years and I’ve seen what it can do. It’s done a lot of good for Walnut Hills.” In the Cincinnati Metro Athletic Conference, the Tigers won four of the last six titles, including the last two in a row.

New Withrow head football coach Ryan Drake speaks to his first team in the Withrow High School auditorium on Jan. 14. SCOTT SPRINGER/COMMUNITY PRESS

While Withrow will graduate talented seniors like Malik Bland, Aaron Harris, Reggie Howard, DeShannon Oats, Keion Teel and Daniel Ware, Drake at least knows the remaining talent pool. See DRAKE, Page A7

Woods’ 1,000th point just a matter of time By Mark D. Motz

mmotz@communitypress.com

HYDE PARK — As long as Antonio Woods has been playing basketball, maybe it was inevitable. “I started playing when I was 3,” Woods said. “My dad was in an adult league and I’d go with him to games and sit on the bench. Every time I heard a whistle I’d run out on the floor and shoot. And when I heard the next whistle I’d run back and sit on the bench.” But a lot of kids chuck the ball toward the rim when they’re little. Not many join a team of older boys at 3 and start filling it up. Woods did. The Forest Park resident scored his 1,000th career point for Summit Country Day Jan. 10 in a win against North College Hill. “It’s a unique club,” said Summit head coach Michael Bradley. “I’ve been around some athletic players in my career and as a coach, but none like him. And he is as good a person as he is an athlete. “When he gave the ball to his mother, that was a really

nice moment. I think it shows the kind of character he has, the humility. Woods said the accomplishment feels great. “I couldn’t have done it without my teammates, all my teammates from freshman year until now. I didn’t really think about it. I just care about the wins.” There have been plenty of those. The Silver Knights are 7-4 so far this season, ranked fifth in the Jan. 13 Enquirer Division II-IV poll. Woods is leading the Miami Valley Conference in scoring at 22.9 points per game. Woods also quarterbacked the Silver Knights football team, stacking up impressive numbers on the gridiron while leading Summit to a 9-3 playoff season as a senior. So much so that he had scholarship offers from Big Ten schools seeking his athleticism. But the allure of a career beyond sports and the opportunity to keep playing both the games he loves steered him toward the Ivy League. He committed to the University of Pennsylvania, where he plans to study either business or

something in the college of arts and sciences. “My main goal is academics first, but after that, just keeping my head on straight and trying to be a good role model for my teammates and the younger kids,” Woods said. “When I found out I had an offer from an Ivy League school, that was it. I know about the connections, that UPenn can set you up with for life. That’s a big opportunity. “I don’t think I could drop either (football or basketball) right now. I like them both too much. I don’t have a favorite.” Or a lot of free time as a result. “I go to school, then practice, then study and do my homework when I get home and I try to study a little bit in the morning before school, too,” Woods said. “Then do it again the next day.” Bradley appreciates the consistency and effort. “He’s been a coach on the floor where I don’t have to say a lot,” he said. “Whether he puts people in the right place See WOODS, Page A7

Summit gets Sievering from Sycamore for soccer The Summit Country Day School named Scott Sievering its new head varsity boys soccer coach. Sievering coached 10 seasons at Sycamore High School, earning a105-46-34 record while winning Greater Miami Confer-

ence coach of the year honors twice. He was the Cincinnati Enquirer Division I coach of the year in 2010. He guided the Aviators to two district championships and a GMC title. He is also a long-time club

“I do and I don’t,” Drake said. “I’ve been at Walnut Hills, so I kind of distanced myself from the football program here. I have had contact with the eighth-graders. I do know most of the seniors that are leaving and most of the juniors because I’ve had them in class.”

Ursuline Academy students committing to participate in collegiate sports, are, in front, from left, Sam Fry, Abigail Wellens, Sarah Reilly, Temarie Tomley, Mehvish Safdar and Emily Slabe. In second row are Danielle Stiene, Kaitlin Barbiere, Paige Kebe and Claudia Rafi.

Loveland will play softball at Hillsdale College; » Temarie Tomley of Anderson Township will swim at the University of Alabama; » Abigail Wellens of

Springboro will play golf at Bradley University. “We are incredibly proud of all of our student athletes,” said Diane Redmond, Ursuline Academy Athletic

Director. “All of these students have worked hard, have proven themselves to be leaders, and we are excited to see what they do in college.” Students were joined by their parents, sib-

lings, and several friends, along with members of the Ursuline administration for the signing ceremony. The event was held in the Ursuline Academy Library.

Typically, the Tigers have their share of college-level talent and the new coach expects more of the same. “We’re probably going to have one or two next year and there’s a couple of good sophomores that will be juniors next year,” Drake said. “I hear the freshman class has a lot of talent and there’s some eighth-graders that are already 6-1 or 6-2 and 200 something pounds.” They at least look like

football players to Drake and he’s already scouring the hallways seeking athletic builds with some competitive fire waiting to be ignited. During his time off Victory Parkway, Drake was running backs coach and co-special teams coach. He coached Tierin Williams, who ran for nearly 1,400 yards in his junior and senior seasons. Coming from the league that produced the Division II champions

(Loveland), those aren’t bad numbers. The Eagles actually beat Loveland less than two years ago with Drake on the sidelines. “Coach K gives his staff a lot of leeway to do stuff,” Drake said. “That’s what I’m going to do with my staff over here. A lot of times guys have a lot of great ideas and they’re scared to tell the head coach. I want my guys to be able to talk to me.”

The new coach will also be guided by Doc Gamble’s influence. Though now on Kent State’s staff, “the Doctor” is just a phone call away. “I have a personal friendship with him and he understands Withrow,” Drake said. “He went to school here and he coached here.” Hard work is already underway for the new coach as his office is conveniently near the Withrow weight room.

Changes in homestead tax reduction law The new state budget has made significant changes to the Homestead Tax Reduction. This real estate tax reduction saves Hamilton County taxpayers between $300 and $450 per year on their real estate taxes. These changes include means testing for both the age-qualified and the disability-qualified applicants. This will now require proof of income before the application is approved for those who have less than $30,500 for 2014 Ohio Adjusted Gross Income. This limit will change annually. There is a “grandfather

clause” in the law that is allowing anyone who qualifies for the 2013 tax year to be accepted without income verDusty ification. This Rhodes COMMUNITY PRESS grandfather status is porGUEST COLUMNIST table, meaning it follows the taxpayer if he or she should move to another home, even if it is in another county. To fall within this category one must either already be receiving the homestead

reduction on his or her property or qualify as a late application by: » owning and living in your home as of Jan. 1, 2013, and at the time the late application is being filed, and » being at least 65 years of age any time during 2013 or being certified as totally and permanently disabled as of Jan. 1, 2013, and » completing and submitting a late homestead application between Jan. 7 and June 2, 2014. Grandfathered applicants must show proof of age or disability. If a taxpayer qual-

ifies for a late file application, he or she must file during the 2014 application period or a year’s worth of tax reduction will be lost and income limits will be applied. If the age, disability, or occupancy requirements are not achieved until 2014, application may be completed and submitted during the same period (Jan. 7-June 2, 2014) and with proper proof of age and income. When applying, if a 2014 income tax return will be filed, a copy of the signed Federal and State returns will need to be presented at the time of the application. Proof

Fireplace, wood stove safety tips for health Home fire safety tips include more than installing fire alarms and developing a fire escape plan. While less obvious, fire places and wood stoves can produce pollutants that can harm your health, if not addressed. If you smell smoke inside your home, that’s a sign that harmful air pollutants are in your home. Wood smoke contains a mixture of air pollutants including microscopic particles. Studies show particle pollution can harm the lungs and heart and even cause early death. According to the U.S. EPA, particle pollution can trigger asthma attacks, impair lung development in children, increase symptoms of COPD and cause coughing, wheezing and chest tightness. For people with heart disease,

particle pollution is linked to heart attacks, irregular heartbeat, heart failure and stroke. People at Megan greater risk Hummel COMMUNITY PRESS from particle pollution, GUEST COLUMNIST including wood smoke, are older adults, children and teens, and people with certain health conditions such as heart or lung disease and asthma. New or expectant mothers may also want to take precautions to protect the health of their babies. Burning the right wood, the right way, in the right wood-burning appliance can reduce harmful air pollution.

Burn the right wood Not all wood is the same. Always burn dry, seasoned wood to reduce particle pollution. Softwoods such as Douglas fir need six months to dry and hardwoods such as oak need at least 12 months. Garbage, plastic, treated lumber and driftwood should never be burned.

Burn the right way

Wet wood is a problem for your health and your pocketbook. It creates a lot of smoke and burns inefficiently, meaning the heat literally goes up in smoke. Moisture meters are inexpensive and available at hardware stores to test the wetness of wood before burning. Wood should only be used if the moisture content is 20 percent or less.

of income will be needed for the applicant and the applicant’s spouse. If an income tax return is not filed, a mock return form will be required for income verification. It is important that those taxpayers who qualify under the grandfather clause be made aware of this and apply properly so as not to lose this reduction. If you have family members or friends who may fall in this category, please share this information with them. Dusty Rhodes is Hamilton County auditor.

WHEN THEY MEET

Burn in the right appliance

Fairfax

Like an old car that belches smoke out of the tailpipe, old wood stoves are bad polluters and less efficient. Newer, EPA-certified wood stoves and fireplace inserts (wood stoves designed to fit into a fireplace), reduce air pollutants by 70 percent compared to older models. Remember, there are also some important regulations for open (outdoor) burning. Where you live may determine whether you can burn.

CH@TROOM Last week’s question Do you think school officials made the right decision recently by canceling classes because of cold temperature? Why or why not?

“Yes, I work in a school district that has cut busing so students would have to walk two miles to school. Those same students are often underdressed without proper coats, hats, or gloves. Two days without school for safety is not that awful.” K.S.

“I have every confidence in CPS to make the right call. There are so many moving parts in that decision it is wrong to second guess. I know I didn’t want to be out in that dangerously cold weather.” Terry Garvin

“Yes. Some children ride the school bus or walk to school, and it was so cold that within 15 minutes there was a chance for frostbite. Not worth risking injury to have our little ones outside when it is that cold. “Also, older children often are underdressed for the weather, and some may not even have appropriate coats, hats or gloves. I was happy to see that even the universities kept the students inside on those days.” D.P.

“As a school teacher, I hate having snow days because it really messes up what I have planned to teach any given

week. “However, with our overly paternalistic society in which kids are rarely never made to deal with any personal challenges not on the athletic field, it seemed pretty ridiculous to cancel school because of the polar vortex driving wind chill below zero for two days. “I know there are students who have to wait outside for the bus, walk to school, or walk across big campuses – and this may lead to frostbite; and schools also had problems with burst pipes and boilers not coming on to heat buildings. “It ends up a judgment call; in that case, the school authorities err on the side of caution for students’ perceived safety; and they always will, so they don’t get sued.” TRog

“I don't think kids today are as tough as kids in the old days so I see why they closed the schools. “Personally I have a granddaughter in the third grade and I

am glad she wasn't out in the this weather. If they miss too many days these days will be added to the end of the year so it is really no big deal.” Dave D.

“Yes, this was the right decision. Most parents, myself included, longed to see the end of Christmas break as the kids were starting to bounce off the walls at home. However, we were approaching record lows. “If frostbite or worse were to occur as kids waited for buses school administrators would have had a heavy burden to shoulder. Make the days up when the weather is better - kids first!!” T.B.

“This time I agree with what they did for the sake of the kids. I know there will be a lot of people that will say they had to walk to school in zero degree or less temps., but even back in the ’50s, ’60s, and ’70s there were schools cancelations. “I'm sure that when the winters of 1977 and 1978 hit their little butts were warm at home because everything closed down. Now don't lie, even the expressways were shut down. “Oh yes, more than 10,000 people claimed that they walked on the Ohio River and more than 100,000 claims that they attended the great 'Freezer Bowl' in a stadium that held 50,000 plus. “Give the kids and teachers a day off for the adverse weather as I'm sure it will not make a big

change in the students grade, but I'm sure the teachers will want their pay plus the extra days for the make-up days, if they occur. “My only gripe is – where were the kids when the snow fell and neighbors needed their driveways and walks shoveled. Oh yes, I forgot, our parents bought us an iPad, iPhone, etc. for Christmas so we can sit on our butts and talk to our friends in the warmth of a home by the fireplace.” D.J.

“It was a great idea! Not for only the students, but for the opening and closing doors on school buildings stressing the heating system, less wear and tear on school buses, personal vehicles, and not to mention road conditions.” O.H.R.

“This wasn't just 'cold temperature' that arrived in the Tristate, it was severely dangerous for any warm-blooded being to be exposed for even a few minutes. “Having been in the education business for over 30 years, I have witnessed firsthand the countless times large numbers of students arrive to school in the middle of winter not properly dressed for the weather. “The fault of the parents? Sometimes, but children, no matter the age, will wear what they like, what is in fashion, and not what they need to keep from experiencing severe cold and

possibly frostbite. Often, those winter hats, coats and gloves will find their way to a backpack, as soon as the parents turn away. “Not everybody can afford to drive their kids to school, not every child has warm enough clothing, so every effort must be made to keep them safe. The schools made the correct decision to close the schools, and surely would have faced lawsuits had any child come to harm because of the inclement weather.” J.B.

Stepping Stones expands programs

for adults with disabilities

S

tepping Stones will expand its programs for adults with disabilities in the new year as part of the merger of United Cerebral Palsy of Greater Cincinnati with Stepping Stones. The new programming will include computer technology, art programs including painting, weaving and photography, and expanded community exploration outings where adults with disabilities can interact in the community. The expansion is the result of combining resources of both agencies, said Stepping Stones Manager of Adult Services Amanda Kay, of Withamsville. The larger Stepping Stones now has three program locations: Indian Hill, Batavia and the newly renovated United Cerebral Palsy site in Norwood. Stepping Stones and United Cerebral Palsy are both United Way partner agencies and merged in November, recognizing their common mission to serve individuals with a wide range of disabilities. Stepping Stones continues to serve children, teens and adults in day and overnight camps, respites and educational programs at the Indian Hill and Batavia sites. In January, the adult day programs at Indian Hill will move to the Norwood site, where United Cerebral Palsy has conducted a similar program. “This is an exciting move,” said Kay. “The new building is specifically designed for the type of programs we offer. We now have an art studio with lots of natural light and color and space.

“We have 14 computer stations with easy vision keyboards and special adaptations that can adjust the desk height and move or tilt keyboards and screens,” said Kay. The new building also has a kitchen designed for people with mobility challenges and large accessible individual restrooms with special lifts to help people who use wheelchairs or have mobility challenges. In the expanded Adult Services Program, participants can choose from five interest areas: Computer Technology, Art,

Continuing Knowledge; Recreation and Community Outings. All individuals participate in Health and Wellness, which includes exercise and nutrition, health education with community health professionals, safety and personal responsibility. Stepping Stones will continue its Adult Services program at the Batavia site. Participants of both programs will have access to the Norwood facility’s amenities. Adult programs run 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday and are designed to help adults

with disabilities build confidence and independence, improve health and fitness, and recognize and celebrate their abilities, said Kay. “Many people go to workshops. We want to be an alternative to a workshop. The fun place, offering recreation and social activities,” Kay said. Some participants come five days a week. Others may split the week between Stepping Stones and a workshop or other activity. “When people come here, I see them light up socially. We have a laid-back pace that invites people to participate in fun programs,” said Kay. “People who otherwise might feel shy or reserved feel comfortable making relationships. They find their way to fit in.” A key component of every activity is choice. The art program is a dramatic example. “Art is not only a way to com-

municate and express your feelings,” said Art Program Coordinator Katie Brenner of Northside. “The whole process is making decisions and choices – what color to use? What do I want on this side? Is it finished? They are in control. So many of the people we serve rely on a lot of other people to do things for them. Here they can make their own decisions,” said Brenner. Some art activities will result in a finished piece, others are about the art experience. “We might put paint in a salad spinner and see what happens. We’ve taken Matchbox cars and driven them through the paint to create patterns.” Every activity in the Adult Services program expands experience, which builds confidence and independence, said Kay.

Rita shares her updated goetta recipe A couple of weeks ago, Linda Vaccariello of Cincinnati Magazine called and asked if I would share some tips on making goetta for an article she was writing. I told her I had just made a batch since I Rita wanted to Heikenfeld share my RITA’S KITCHEN latest recipe with you. Goetta, as many of you know, is a Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky specialty. Goetta has Germanic origins, but most people who live in Germany have never heard of it. Inge, my German daughter-in-law who grew up in Germany, said she didn’t have a clue until she moved to Cincinnati. Yes, it’s definitely a Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky “thing.” A possibility about the name is that it comes from the German word “gote” or “gotte,” which means peeled grain. The word became Americanized to mean “goetta,” since the ingredient you cannot do without for authentic goetta is pinhead oats (also called steel-cut oats). Dorsel’s and Bob’s Red Mill are common brands. Goetta is a “hand-medown” recipe and each family’s is a bit different. It’s a ritual in my family and I even use my mother-in-law Cla-

ra’s special long-handled spoon that she inherited from her mother. Jon Peters, a Western Hills reader, makes his father-in-law Bill Sanders’ recipe. “I even use his pan and really enjoyed making it this year. There’s something special about using a family recipe and making a big batch that you’re going to share with family and friends,” he told me. Jon and Ellen’s kids get to help, as well. Jon calls his loaves of goetta “bricks,” and his family’s recipe is on my blog.

Rita’s goetta

I’ve been making my mother-in-law Clara’s goetta for years with pork shoulder, just as she made it when they slaughtered hogs in autumn. I used to cook goetta from start to finish on top of the stove, but my sister-in-law, Claire Yannetti, gave me this tip: Cook meat and veggies on top of the stove and cook oats in the slow cooker. Much easier! Stovetop cooking requires frequent stirring and careful watching so oats don’t stick. Here’s my latest and, I think, best version.

3 pounds fresh pork shoulder, bone-in if possible, cut in half to fit pan 3 cups each: chopped onions and celery (include celery leaves) 4 dried bay leaves 2 tablespoons salt, or more

Rita’s latest goetta recipe features oats cooked in a slow cooker.THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD to taste 1 tablespoon black pepper, or more to taste 8-10 cups water or more if needed 5 cups pinhead oats

Put meat, onions, celery, bay, salt and pepper in large stockpot. Cover meat with water by about an inch or so. Bring to a boil, cover, lower to a simmer and cook until meat falls from bone, 3 hours or so. Add water if necessary to keep meat just under liquid. Remove meat and let cool before chopping finely. Save liquid. (You could also cook meat and veggies in slow cooker

and you probably won’t need to add more water). Spray a 6-7 quart slow cooker and turn on high. Put liquid in and add oats, stirring to blend. Put lid on and cook two hours or so, stirring occasionally, until oats are thoroughly cooked and tender, and mixture is very thick. If necessary, add more water as oats cook, but be careful. The mixture, when cooked, should be thick enough for a spoon to stand up in without falling over and be difficult to stir. Add meat and continue to cook, covered, for about 45 minutes, stirring occasional-

ly. Add more salt and pepper if you want – don’t be shy about adding them. Remove bay leaves. Line bread pans with wrap or foil. Put goetta in pans, smoothing tops. Let cool, cover and store in refrigerator for 12 hours or so to set up. Store in refrigerator a week or several months in freezer. To serve: Fry with bacon until both goetta and bacon are crisp on both sides. Or in bacon grease. Tip: Quick-cooking pinhead oats now available. I just found this out and have not tested the

Duke Energy warns of scams and employee impersonators Duke Energy is warning its customers in Ohio about payment scams and employee impersonators. In an email alert, the company said people have reported receiving phone calls from individuals who claim to represent Duke Energy. These individuals can demand an immediate payment, usually within a short time frame, with a prepaid debit card to cover past-due accounts, payments not received or checks that did not clear. “Please remember if you have an unpaid electric bill, you will be notified about overdue payments in advance,” the alert said. “We also do not require that you pay your bills with a prepaid debit card. You may pay online, by phone, with a bank draft, by mail or in person.” The company also reminded customers that official representatives from Duke Energy do not

arrive unannounced at a customer’s home or business and ask to enter to perform work, unless there is an emergency or safety-related issue. “We encourage you not to open your door for a utility worker unless you can confirm the person’s identity,” the alert said. “Our employees carry company badges with photographs, and our contractors will also carry proper identification. Fraudulent vehicle signs and clothing can be easily created and look authentic, so please verify a person’s identity by their company badge before you give them access to your home or business.” If you have a question about whether someone is a legitimate representative of Duke Energy, contact the company directly at 1-800-544-6900 to verify the person’s identity. Call police immediately if you believe the person is an imposter.

Cincinnati Woman’s Club presents scholarship awards The Cincinnati Woman’s Club continues its tradition of awarding annual university scholarships. The Club began awarding scholarships in 1927, with the first recipient being a high school student, the son of a widowed mother with four younger sisters. The Club funded his education through his graduation from The Ohio State University in 1932, then began funding one of his sister’s higher education. The young man earned a doctorate, became a lecturer and president of the Metallurgical Society, and received many honors during his career. Together with his sister, a CWC

scholarship recipient who became a social worker, they carefully advanced the educations of their three younger sisters, all who earned college degrees. The first recipient, Richard Taylor, visited the Club and expressed his gratitude during the CWC Centennial Celebration. Through the generous contributions of its members, The Cincinnati Woman’s Club has funded scholarships for women over many years. Recipients, who must be fulltime students and maintain a 3.5 grade average, receive the scholarships annually until graduation if they continue to meet

these criteria. They are honored at a luncheon in November, when each presents a report regarding her academic progress before the CWC members. This year’s scholars are pursuing a variety of majors in higher education. The following students were awarded CWC scholarships for 20132014: Aubrey Collopy – nursing, sophomore; Brooke Dungan – nursing, junior; Kavonya EdwardsTidwell – criminal justice, sophomore; Jessica Goldstein-Kral – ballet/CCM, sophomore; Shannon Hokanson – arts & sciences/historic

preservation, sophomore; Shannon Rothenbusch – communication and science disorders, junior; Shelby Haskins – Special education, junior; Michelle Haggard – chemical engineering, senior; Alexandra Schutzman – biomedical engineering, senior; Beck Scholarships from CWC were awarded to three Cincinnati Art Academy students – Amelia Ferguson, Amy Mack and Samantha McCormick. The Cincinnati Woman’s Club members continue a tradition of volunteerism and philanthropy in our community that dates back to its founding.
