BECAUSE COMMUNITY MATTERS

Speed hump requested on Paxton Ave. By Forrest Sellers fsellers@communitypress.com

HYDE PARK — A request to install a speed hump on Paxton Avenue has generated some controversy. Supporters of the speed hump say it will reduce excessive speed along Paxton Avenue. Opponents, though, say a speed hump will actually create a more dangerous situation. The Hyde Park Community Council in cooperation with the Mt. Lookout Community Council will have a public meeting 7 p.m. Thursday, March 20, at Knox Presbyterian Church, 3400 Michigan Ave. Michael Moore, director of Cincinnati Transportation and Engineering, said residents on Paxton Avenue between Alpine Terrace and Linwood Avenue, had petitioned for a speed hump to reduce speeds and reduce cut-through traffic. Moore said generally more than one speed hump is in-

stalled to help reduce speeds. However, the incline along Paxton Avenue has created some issues. “Typically, we don’t install Uebelacker speed humps on hills with a grade greater than 7 percent,” said Moore. According to Moore, the grade on most of Paxton Avenue is between 10 and 12 percent. However, two locations on Paxton Avenue, one near Pineridge Avenue and another near Kinmont Street, are flat enough that they could accommodate speed humps. The city had conducted a postcard survey of residents near the proposed locations. Although the survey indicated support for the speed humps, a number of residents have expressed their opposition. A public meeting has been arranged for residents to weigh in

on the matter and ask questions. Hyde Park Neighborhood Council board member Carl Uebelacker said a city traffic engineer is expected to attend the meeting. Uebelacker said council does not typically take sides in speed

hump discussions, but since this one has generated some controversy, it was decided to conduct a public meeting. Uebelacker said the speed humps could have a potential impact beyond just Paxton Avenue. He said a number of the

side streets would be affected by installation of the speed humps. Paxton Avenue resident Gina Sawma said she is opposed to a speed hump. She said a speed hump would create problems for motorists during bad weather, especially if the road was slick. Additionally, Sawma said one of the proposed locations for a speed hump has a problem with water runoff. She said if the water freezes, the situation will be even more precarious. “I think the speed humps will hinder people trying to get up the hill,” she said. Paxton Avenue resident Mary Kenkel, though, said the speed humps are necessary. Kenkel said she frequently sees motorists speeding along Paxton Avenue. “There is (also) tons of traffic,” she said. Kenkel said a speed hump would be an effective way to help reduce these speeds.

East Side neighborhoods OK entertainment district By Lisa Wakeland lwakeland@communitypress.com

Three East Side neighborhoods have agreed to form a new Community Entertainment District. Columbia Tusculum, the East End and Linwood community councils all supported the proposal, which allows for up to 15 additional liquor licenses, above the state quota, in the defined area. For this one, it would encompass all three neighborhoods, from roughly Eli’s Barbecue on Riverside Drive to Bella Luna on Eastern Avenue and up to parts of Columbia Parkway. It also includes the area along Wooster Road, near Otto Armleder Park. “I think it would spur development and (property) rehabilitation in the areas that are affected,” said Tom Salamon, vice president of the Linwood Community Council. There was at least one Linwood resident, who lives near Terry’s Turf Club on Eastern Avenue, who had some concerns about noise and traffic in the new district, Salamon said. “That was the biggest concern, additional traffic, because that is one of the areas that would be ripe for that kind of business,” he said. Creating a Community Entertainment District has been discussed for several years, but the idea didn’t really gain traction until last year. “It’s one of those things that had been at work for a long time, and the genesis of it is a number of residents and business owners thought it’d be a good way to improve the neighborhood,” said Christine Carli, president of the Columbia TusSee DISTRICT, Page A2

A BRIEF HISTORY In 2008, City Council approved two Community Entertainment Districts for the Banks riverfront development. In 2010, then-Councilwoman Laure Quinlivan spearheaded legislation so nonprofits focused on neighborhood revitalization could get a break on the $15,000 cost to apply for a Community Entertainment District. Later that year, Pleasant Ridge became the first neighborhood to take advantage of the reduced fee of $1,500. Since then, City Council has approved Community Entertainment Districts for East Price Hill, Madisonville, Over-the-Rhine, Northside, Clifton Heights/University Heights/Fairview, Short Vine and Walnut Hills. Without a Community Entertainment District in place, a business can apply to the state for a liquor license that costs $2,344 annually. But the state limits the number of such licenses: one for every 2,000 city residents. And because of population losses, the city of Cincinnati is 14 licenses over its quota, according to the state. That means 14 businesses would have to give up licenses before a new one is issued.

Oakley breaking and entering incidents on rise By Forrest Sellers fsellers@communitypress.com

OAKLEY — Cincinnati Police say breaking and entering incidents in Oakley are on the rise. During the March Oakley Community Council meeting, Cincinnati Police officer Dwayne Dawson said eight breaking and entering offenses were reported in Oakley from Feb. 3 to March 3. These incidents occurred on Ridge Avenue, Markbreit Avenue, Paxton Avenue, Forrer Street, Cardiff Avenue, Brownway Avenue, Ferdinand Place and Verne Avenue. He said sites being targeted are “vacant properties under renovation.” Dawson said items which are being taken include appliances and tools. A lot of times these are buildings being rehabbed

or part of a construction project, he said. He recommended residents “keep an Dawson eye” on these types of properties. Although Dawson said thefts from autos, which have been a recurring problem in recent years, are on the decline, he cautioned general theft is still an ongoing problem. These thefts typically take place at a store or shopping area, according to Dawson. A number of these incidents happened at 4825 Marburg Ave., where a number of retail stores are located. This isn’t going away even after the holidays, he said. People are leaving

purses in their carts, he said. Wallets are also being taken, said Dawson, adding that customers Schaff should be alert to pickpockets. “Be mindful, (and) know where your wallet and purse are,” he said. Oakley Community Council Vice PresidentDave Schaff inquired whether people have been endangered as part of these thefts. Dawson said very few attacks have been made on people. He said he has not heard about victimization being part of these crimes. Following the crime reports, Oakley Community Council board president Craig Rozen provided an update on council’s “Vi-

District Continued from Page A1

culum Community Council. Bill O’Donnell, who owns Stanley’s Pub in Columbia Tusculum, said a Community Entertainment District is a positive step, but not the only solution. O’Donnell said it’d be great to have a group of new businesses create a more walkable destination, but the neighborhoods also needs banks, hardware stores or other retail spots, not just places to have a drink. “Being an existing bar, it’s a little like having more than one gas station on the corner — you hope that more businesses will draw more people who will walk around and pop in, but the way it is now, we have to draw everyone ourselves,” he said. “I think it can’t hurt to have more places to walk to (for) entertainment, but I don’t think it’s the only answer to what the community needs.” The three community councils are working on a letter of support endorsing the Community Entertainment District and finalizing its boundaries. It would go through a review process before Cincinnati City Council, which has to approve the formal designation, Carli said. With a Community Entertainment District in place existing businesses looking to expand hours or new businesses coming to the neighborhood would pay $2,344 annually for the liquor license. On the open market, those could cost up to $30,000. There are certain requirements for a Community Entertainment District designation: the area must be contiguous, there is one license per five acres, up to a maximum of 15, and businesses need at least a certain level of food service permit. New liquor licenses would be apportioned throughout the entire district, and it’s unlikely they would be concentrated in one neighborhood.

Bradley proud of Summit Country Day despite regional loss

Woods: Winningest Silver Knight ever By Tom Skeen tskeen@communitypress.com

KETTERING — Summit Country Day School boys basketball coach Michael Bradley had a smile on his face when he walked into his team’s locker room after losing to Roger Bacon High School 49-46, March 15 in the Division III regional finals at Kettering Fairmont High School’s James S. Trent Arena. Why, you ask? “I told them ‘don’t think this smile on my face is because we won; I was here, we lost, but you all were amazing and you have been for four years,’” Bradley said. And he has reason to smile. The Silver Knights, No. 8 in the final Enquirer Divisions IIIV area coaches’ poll, were 1-2 to begin the season (a loss to Lockland was later overturned do to an ineligible player) but turned it around to win 12 of their final 13 games and make a postseason run only they believed they had in them. “It’s just a testament to the kids,” Bradley said. “… The kids, we demanded so much out of them and they just kept giving and giving and got better and better. They just gave all they could and to be in the regional final with this group of kids was just amazing.” The loss closes the book on the career of Antonio Woods. The senior scored 12 points in the loss and closes his career as the winningest Silver Knight in program history with a 93-13 record over his four years under Bradley. “He’s been amazing,” Bradley said of his star senior. “He was handed the ball as a freshman to start from day one. … We cannot take him out of the game. He has to guard their best player; he has to bring (the ball) up every time; he’s on his knees in the second quarter because we ask so much of him and he’s only going to get better when he has other scholarship players around him. The best for him is yet to come in basketball and his personal growth.” That growth will come next year as Woods received a full ride to the University of Pennsylvania where he will try to play both football and basketball. To know how important Woods has been to the Silver Knights, just ask Bradley what they’d be like without him. “Without him we’re 3-19 and we’re home three weeks ago,” he said. Flying under the radar is

something that fuels a lot of teams, especially a team like Summit that’s made it to the regional tournament four consecutive years now. “So many people counted us out,” Woods said. “This group of guys worked so hard to get this far, so like coach Bradley said, we probably overachieved this year, but it was a pleasure to be here.” Woods has been a part of all four regional tournament teams, including the 2012 state championship team where he played through the title game with a torn MCL, so it’s no doubt he’s left his legacy on the Summit Country Day walls. “I love my school so much,” Woods said. “I love it to death. Just the community, the dedication to sports; it’s a wonderful place and I’m really going to miss it.”

EVANSTON — Moeller High School’s aspirations to play at the Schottenstein Center were ended several miles down the road at Xavier’s Cintas Center on March 14 by Trotwood Madison. Trailing 44-30 going to the third quarter, the Rams put on a furious full-court fourth and outscored Moeller 32-17. Forward Dazhontae Bennett hit a pair of treys under the twominute mark to tie the game. In the final minute, Moeller went up, Trotwood tied, then Tre’ Hawkins made a pair of free throws to put the Crusaders up 61-59 with :21 to go. Trotwood Madison then worked the ball around and got a last shot on a tap-out. Ironically, it was a guard named Chris Mack at Xavier who won it for the Rams with a top-of-the-key three-pointer with 2.3 seconds left. Moeller had two inbound plays from there, but the game ended with Grant Benzinger’s half-court three-ball missing giving the Rams had the 62-61 win and a regional championship. “Give them great credit, they made the plays they had to make,” Moeller coach Carl Kremer said. “I thought we controlled the entire game, but we didn’t get it closed.” Even at the two-minute mark, the Crusaders had a sixpoint lead and a decisive rebounding advantage. The final totals show Moeller winning the battle of the boards 45-29, but turning the ball over a costly 22 times. Trotwood Madison’s Bennett led with 22 points, with his two key three-balls to tie coming in the final 120 seconds. Mack attempted just two shots from the

arc and made the one that counted. “Late in the game their press got a few turnovers and they hit a few threes,” Kremer said. “Even the last play, we didn’t let Bennett get a touch. There was a deflected ball that rolled out to a guy and he makes a shot. The basketball gods are cruel.” Fouls were nearly even with Moeller committing 23 to Trotwood’s 22, but the fast and frantic action down the stretch took an emotional toll on the Crusaders and their fans. “I think overall for the great part of the game, the officiating was very good,” Kremer said. “I want to say it’s human nature to officiate the run. I think they got some critical calls in the run back at us.” Leading Moeller was senior Jack Anton with 21 points and 14 rebounds. Fellow senior Tre’ Hawkins had 13 points and junior Nate Fowler had 12 points and led all rebounders with 15. Blanketed again by the opposition’s best defensive player, senior Grant Benzinger finished with nine points and four rebounds. Senior Adam Gigax, Benzinger and Fowler all collected four fouls on the difficult evening. “I have no answers for them,” Kremer said. “We’re going to miss those kids and what they’re about and how they represent our school. That’s as crushed a locker room as I’ve ever been around.” Moeller finishes the season 24-2. The loss marked the final games for seniors Hawkins, Anton, Benzinger, Gigax, Gus Ragland, Logan Malone, Austin Morrow and Trey Stacey. Returning from this season’s roster will be juniors Fowler, Noah Able, Chris Bucher, Kurtis Hoffman, Kevin Kerley, Brad Munz and Grant Pitman.

Moeller’s Gaier retires as wrestling coach KENWOOD — After 29 years as head wrestling coach for Archbishop Moeller High School, Jeff Gaier has announced his retirement. “Jeff has had a long and distinguished career,” said Athletic Director Mike Asbeck in a statement to the faculty and staff, “and it is with great respect that I hope you can join me in thanking him for his service to our wrestling program. That being said, Jeff is not going anywhere,” he added. “Jeff will be staying on in his technology role and will be a sounding board for me

and future coaches.” Gaier is director of Moeller’s Information Technology Center and was responsible for implementing Moeller’s one-toone laptop program, which was initiated in 1995 and began in 1998, becoming one of the first schools in the nation to use technology as a personal learning tool. In 2002, educational technology leader IBM selected Moeller as a model program in technology education. At the 2014 GCL Championships, Moeller placed first out of 12 teams with 286.5 points. This was the

12th consecutive league title and the 21st in the last 22 years. The 21 titles represent the most in history of any member of the GCL. Six athletes were crowned as GCL Champions: Connor Borton (126), Stuart Morton (145), Austin Bohenek (160), Dean Meyer (182), Chalmer Frueauf (220), and Jack Meyer (285). Dean added his name to the very short list (4) of four-time GCL Champions. In Chalmer’s case, it was his third time on the winner’s stand. In the sectional championships, the Crusaders

Three of them as No.1 seeds: Conner Ziegler (120), Connor Borton (126), and Dakota Sizemore (182). Success continued for the Crusaders in the district championships.

UC Clermont wins 1st national title By Mark D. Motz

mmotz@communitypress.com

BATAVIA — Winners get to write the histories. The University of Cincinnati Clermont College women’s basketball team created school history with its first-ever national title. The Cougars knocked off top-seeded Central Maine 69-51 in the U.S. Collegiate Athletic Association National Championship March 8. Stacie Lee (Lakota West) lived up to her AllAmerica billing with with 20 points and 14 rebounds in the finals. Fellow AllAmerican Ashley Keith (Clark Montessori) scored 18 points and grabbed seven rebounds. Dana Finney (Lockland) added 10 points. A slate of celebrations

is on tap. The first was an on-campus recognition ceremony primarily for the student body March 14, but appearances at a Batavia Township trustees meeting, the Ohio statehouse and more will follow. “I told the girls they’re now rock stars, whether they want to be or not,” said head coach Mike Matthews, a Milford resident. “It’s unbelievable. I’m still not sure if it’s hit us yet.” Keith agreed. “It kind of feels surreal,” she said. “From playing in the tournament last year we felt like we could do it, but actually getting it done is amazing. It means all the hard work paid off.” The victory created an indelible memory for Lee. “It’s something I’ll always want to relive, but

never get to relive,” she said, wearing her national championship hoodie. “We actually got to start something here. Hopefully the future players will look at us and keep on winning.” Keith and Lee have 3year-old sons named Jordan. Keith’s boy made the trip with mommy to the tournament and won fanof-the-game honors in two of the three contest. Matthews said his team embraced the family concept.“It’s not how good you are or how much talent you have, but it’s the best team,” Matthews said. “These girls have been an excellent team all year. (I started to think we could win) in mid January. We lost our starting (small forward) and our starting point guard to injury. But other girls stepped in,

stepped up. We started to realize what our potential was.” Caitlynn Distler missed being part of a team. She didn’t play basketball her junior or senior year at Milford, but went out for the Cougars and was on the floor when the buzzer sounded in the finals. “I kind of knew (we had won) by then,” she said. “Everyone just kind of came out on the floor and we were all over. I just remember seeing Stacie and Ashley hugging. Just seeing us bond together through the season (was the best part).” Jessie Brenes said adjusting from hoops at Glen Este High School to the college game was a big step, but she wouldn’t have wanted to do it with any other group.

New law may change birth parent’s life forever If you are an Ohio birth parent who relinquished a child to adoption from 1964 to 1996, then you need to be aware that you may be in for the most wonderful, frightening, joyous, and surreal time of your life—meeting your child for the second (or even first) time! Last December Gov. Kasich signed into law substitute SB 23 that gives adopted adults born between 1964 and 1996 access to their original birth certificates. The intent of the law is to end discrimination and confer the same civil rights to Ohio adoptees as to any other citizen, namely access to personal information about themselves. The law

takes effect on March 20, 2015. For adoptees, having access to their original birth certificates will make the Susan search for Anthony COMMUNITY PRESS answers to deeply perGUEST COLUMNIST sonal questions much easier. Many adopted adults yearn to meet the people who gave them life and understand “Chapter 1” of their lives. “How did I come to be in this world? Who do I look like? Where do my innate talents come from?” These are ques-

tions only original families can answer. In deference to birth parents, a provision of the new law is to give them one year to submit Contact Preference forms to let their adult children know if and how they prefer to be contacted. From research done in other states that opened sealed adoption records, very few birth parents ever say they want no contact. The forms will be available on the Ohio Department of Health website on March 20, 2014. For some birth parents the prospect of reunion with their lost children may seem daunting, even frightening. I know this is true because I was one

of those women who kept it secret from all but a few for 29 years. Opening the door to the past and confronting my long buried feelings of shame and grief were difficult at first, but so very liberating once the truth was told. With my family’s blessing and support, I made it easy for my adopted daughter to find us if she was looking. Using Internet resources, she found me 17 years ago and today our families fully embrace one another. We get together often for birthdays and holidays and “just because.” As a young girl grieving for her lost baby, I never dreamed this would be possible.

In our community support for birth parents like me is available through Ohio Birthparent Group—Cincinnati. The group’s purpose is to provide a safe space for birth parents of all generations to share their stories and get support and guidance from other birth parents that understand this lifelong journey. The group meets the third Saturday of every month from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Blue Ash Public Library. For more information, contact http://www.ohiobirthparents.org. Susan Anthony is a Madeira resident.

CH@TROOM Last week’s question Do you agree with the tactics recently used by Greenpeace activists at Procter & Gamble Co. headquarters in Downtown Cincinnati? Why or why not?

“To me the actions of Greenpeace puts them in the same league as the Ku Klux Klan.”

R.V.

“I do not agree with destruction of property without provocation. The Greenpeace organization sometimes goes too far in its support of the environmental and animal rights' causes. “Breaking windows or destroying property for the sake of a protest just brings attention by the media to the lawbreakers instead of the issue. This was a mistake by the protesters and allows them to be lumped in with hippies, draftdodgers, and other countercultural groups who most Americans don't understand.”

T.J.P.

“Absolutely I agree with Greenpeace activists hanging banners at Procter & Gamble

NEXT QUESTION Ohio legislators are considering giving schools more discretion to deal with incidents such as students pointing their fingers as imaginary guns, in effect changing the current “zero tolerance” policy. Is this a good idea? Why or why not? Every week we ask readers a question they can reply to via e-mail. Send your answers to espangler@communitypress.com with Chatroom in the subject line by 5 p.m. on Thursday.

headquarters! Somebody has to step forward to make the world aware of rainforest and endangered animal destruction, and they have the courage and funds to do so when others do not. “I wholeheartedly applaud their successful effort to bring this destruction to light, as certainly Proctor & Gamble was not going to unless they were pushed to the edge, and they were. “What are we doing to our earth?

“Not at all. Our country provides for protected free speech in many ways. The activists chose to ignore those protected options and commit a premeditated crime to convey their message. “The rights of Procter and Gamble should be protected the same as any other citizen. If your neighbor doesn’t like your barking dog, should he be able to break into your house and fly a banner from your roof?”

Ambrosia, cake recipes help welcome spring As I write this column, I can see the field beyond our vegetable garden sowed with winter rye. After it sprouted, it stayed nestled under a blanket of snow until recently. It looks like a pale green carpet. Seeing new growth at this time of year just gives me a bright Rita outlook on Heikenfeld my day. RITA’S KITCHEN My cooking is starting to reflect the change of season, too. I’m thinking way ahead with lighter fare and fun sides and desserts to

share for spring.

Ambrosia

I can remember exactly when I first tasted this heavenly side dish that goes so well with Easter ham. We were newly married and took a weekend trip to Gatlinburg. One of the restaurants featured ambrosia. I had no idea what it was but it sounded so intriguing that I ordered it. The waiter explained that it was a Southern side dish made with fruit and cream. I was too shy to ask any more about it, and when it arrived at our table I thought he brought me somebody else’s dessert. Since then I’ve made it many times.

My current favorite is this recipe that I adapted from Alton Brown.

Tip from Rita’s kitchen

Donna Goulet’s 7-Up cake

I’ve had this recipe in my file since last summer from Donna and was waiting for the right time to share it. Donna has had this recipe for a long time – she cut it out of the newspaper. Donna said: “It is delicious. A West-sider all my life until recently we moved to Erlanger, Ky. Really enjoy your column and look forward to it every week.” Well, Donna, I enjoy sharing reader’s recipes and this one was a big hit. So nice for springtime entertaining. It stayed moist, covered, at room temperature for several days. The only thing I did different is that I made a simple glaze instead of making the frosting that Donna suggests. If you make her frosting, I would store the cake in the frig. 1 box (two-layer size) yellow cake mix 1 box (four-serving size) instant vanilla or pineapple pudding mix 3 ⁄4 cup cooking oil 4 eggs 1 ⁄2 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional) 10 ounces 7-Up

Mix cake mix, instant pudding mix, oil and eggs in large bowl of electric mixer until well blended. Add vanilla, if using it, and the 7-Up. Beat two minutes at medium speed, scraping bowl

frequently. Turn into a greased and floured 13 x 9-inch baking pan, or into two nine-inch layer cake pans. Bake in a pre-heated 350-degree oven 40 to 45 minutes, or until tester inserted in center comes out clean. Prepare 7-Up cake frosting and pour cooked mixture over the warm cake.

Make sure homeowner’s, renter’s insurance has sewer-back-up coverage It’s a problem that’s plagued the Tristate for years – sewers backing up into area homes. Several years ago a federal court ordered the Cincinnati Metropolitan Sewer District to pay to clean up sewer back-up damage, but that hasn’t solved the problem everywhere. Sewer backups can occur just about everywhere and they can not only damage your basement, but your belongings as well. Unless you

protect yourself, you could be stuck with huge cleanup bills. That’s what hapHoward pened to Ain Karla KraHEY HOWARD! mer after a sewer backup at her Alexandria home late last year. “We came home to a weird smell and went downstairs and noticed

some puddles,” Kramer said. That’s when Kramer and her husband, Daniel, founded their basement was flooded with several inches of sewer water. “The water was actually gushing up through the sewer,” she said. A plumber was soon able to determine their sewer line to the street was clear; it was the sanitation district’s main line that was clogged up. “There were deep tree roots that had grown through the lines,” Kra-

Do You Suffer from Frequent Aches and Pains? Do You Have Fibromyalgia? You may be able to participate in an investigational medication research study.

What This is a research study to find out more about the safety and tolerability of an investigational medication. Researchers want to see whether it can help people with fibromyalgia. An “investigational” medication is a medication that is being tested and is not approved for use in the United States by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Who Men and women, age 18 to 65 years old, who have fibromyalgia may be eligible for participation. Pay Participants will be compensated for time and travel.

mer said. In addition to replacing the tile on the basement floor, as well as the carpet, the Kramers had to replace drywall because everything was damaged by that sewer water. Northern Kentucky Sanitation District No. 1, known as SD-1, came out and fixed the sewer line, but won’t pay for the Kramers’ damage. “They came out and said, ‘Yes, it was definitely their fault,’ but since they didn’t actually know (the blockage) was there they were not at fault,” Kramer said. Fortunately, the Kramers have sewer backup insurance as part of their homeowner’s coverage. But they only had $5,000 coverage and the damage to their home and belongings exceeded $12,000. SD-1 Director Dave

Rager said that while such backups are unfortunate, they do happen. “It is not uncommon that it happens in our system. We try to keep up with the system but they do happen. That’s part of the reason why so many utilities are owned by the government, the challenge of maintaining systems like this,” Rager said. Rager said the sewer district will be checking the lines in Kramers’ neighborhood every six months to make sure they remain clear. Unlike the Cincinnati Metropolitan Sewer District, SD-1’s federal court decree doesn’t require it to pay for undetected sewer line problems. “We have 700 miles of lines. That’s almost enough to go from coast to coast,” Rager said.

The Kramers have now increased their sewer back-up insurance and this is something all homeowners should consider – especially those with a finished basement. In addition, those who rent homes should check their renter’s insurance policy. A Forest Park man said although he has renter’s insurance, his policy didn’t cover the recent sewer back-up damage to his belongings. So, because many renters’ policies don’t automatically include sewer back-up coverage, you need to ask for this protection. Howard Ain’s column appears bi-weekly in the Community Press newspapers.

Learn to live with chronic disease with course at Hyde Park Center book, Healthy U class members learn from others with similar health issues, set personal goals and report on their progress each week. Problem-solving, decision-making and confidence-building are key parts of the program. Topics include relaxation techniques, decreasing fatigue and improving sleep, diet changes to control symptoms, exercise to improve strength and endurance, taking an active role in health care discussions, using medications correctly, and other ways to deal with chronic health conditions. Healthy-U was developed at Stanford University and has helped hundreds of thousands of people improve their health and quality of life over the past thirty years. Studies have shown that the program results in significant, measurable improvements in movement, symptoms, depression, fatigue, disability, and activity limitations. Class members also have fewer doctor visits and spend fewer days in the hospital compared with those who did not participate in the program. As one class member said, “The course exposed me to new ways of thinking about myself and the medical problems that affected my life. It gave me new strategies for keep-

ing depression and pain at bay, ways to relax my mind and body, and eyeopening ideas about exercise that I could do. I was given an arsenal of skills

to use to take charge of my life once again in a way that was clear and easy to understand. Through weekly action plans I began to feel suc-

cessful, seeing in a positive light those things about which I had been hopeless before. Instead of trying to fight/cure my chronic illnesses, I now

Turn your associate degree into a bachelor’s– just like Adrienne Larson did. Thirty years after earning her associate degree, Adrienne wanted more from her career. Through the new Applied Administration program at UC Blue Ash College, she was able to transfer all of her credits toward a bachelor’s degree from UC. The flexible class schedule and convenient location made it possible for her to earn her bachelor’s while continuing to work. Now Adrienne’s earning potential is unlimited as she prepares for the next phase in her career. Learn more at ucblueash.edu/applied.

Nearly 92 percent of older adults have at least one chronic condition and 77 percent have two or more, according to the National Council on Aging. Continuous health conditions like arthritis can limit daily activities, cause stress and fatigue, and decrease quality of life. A free six-week course this spring aims to help people with chronic conditions take control of their health, feel better, do more, and even save money on health care costs. Called the Healthy-U Chronic Disease SelfManagement Program, the series will run 9:30 a.m. Thursday mornings from April 10 to May 15 at Hyde Park Center for Older Adults, 2800 Erie Ave. The course is free to any adults with health conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, fibromyalgia, arthritis, sickle cell disease, depression, or any other chronic health issues, as well as their caregivers. To register, call 3216816. The class size is limited, so reserve a place soon. The evidence-based course is sponsored by the Council on Aging of Southwestern Ohio.

B8 • EASTERN HILLS JOURNAL • MARCH 19, 2014

Families invited to join Amazing Race April 12 Families looking for something to do with their kids might want to register for the Cincinnati 2014 Great Amazing Race, an annual D.I.T. (Do-it -Together) family-oriented foot race based on the popular reality series, The Amazing Race. Registration is happening now online at

www.GreatAmazing Race.com. The race takes place from 2-5 p.m., on Saturday, April 12, at Voice of America Park in West Chester. Teams of two people (adults and kids grades K-12) race around a milelong course with up to 8 stations. Clues provided

at each station directs teams to perform tasks or complete obstacle course that focus on teamwork in order to advance to the next station. Contestants should be prepared to get wet and dirty while completing the tasks. The course is designed to ensure beginners are

able to complete the race within the allotted time, while veteran racers will complete the more difficult challenges. Greg Benton, producer of Great Amazing Race, organizes this series of races taking place in cities across the United States. “Our goal is to encour-

age families to devote 30 minutes each day to physical activity, together as a family. Whether it be walking, playing or working in the yard" Benton said. In addition, the Great Amazing Race series supports the 30-Minutes-aDay Family Initiative, which is directed at encouraging parents to participate in physical activity with their children on a daily basis. Because of this, the race encourages child/ parent pairs, with the child serving as team leader. Adult teams are also welcome.

Medals will be awarded following the race in various categories, and the 25 best teams will qualify for the championship race and a chance to win $2,000. Special pricing is available for teachers, military, law enforcement, fire, girl scouts, boy scouts, YMCA, 4-H, BBBS and BGC. Walk-ups on the day of the race will be accepted, but Benton urges pre-registration, as the race is limited to 120 teams. Online registration cost is $40 per two-member team, and can be completed at www.GreatAmazingRace.com.
