Friends recall Collin Barton fondly Gannett News Service TERRACE PARK — As investi-

gators continued delving into the death of Collin Barton, the teen who was found days after he was struck by a vehicle while walking home from a party, friends shared vivid pleasant memories of him. They also expressed admiration for the statement his father issued March 21, in which Sean Barton thanks supporters and offers words of wisdom and comfort for parents and teens. “Knowing Sean and Deborah (Collin’s parents), it does not surprise me that even in the throes of grief, they’re still thinking about other people,” said Susan Ferrell Troller, a neighbor of the family for the past 11 years. “It’s a remarkable

Collin flashed his signature smile,” she said. “I’ll always be grateful for that last memory. He was a terrific,

Silver Knights win the Division II title It took 32 years but it’s finally here. Summit Country Day Silver Knights are the state’s Division II state basketball champions. The Silver Knights defeated Portsmouth 53-37 March 24 in Columbus. It’s the team’s first state basketball title. The Silver Knights lost in the state title game in 1980. The win capped an almost perfect 26-1 season, it’s lone loss to Taft. And they had to play the final game with one of their starters injured and only able to play a fraction of the game. Antonio Woods injured his left knee during the team’s 49-41 semifinal win over Bedford St. Peter Chanel. Still, Woods scored eight points and grabbed three rebounds in the final win. “This is the ultimate goal of every team when you start the season and we are thrilled to have had the run we had this year,” head coach Michael Bradley said. “We couldn’t be happier to bring the first championship to Summit…it’s just an amazing accomplishment.”

Mural to highlight Columbia Tusculum By Lisa Wakeland lwakeland@communitypress.com

There will be a new addition this planting season to the neighborhood community gardens along Columbia Parkway. The Columbia Tusculum Community Council is working with Higher Level Art to add a splash of color to the drab concrete wall near the gardens at the corner of Columbia Parkway and Strafer Street. Danny Babcock, Matt Dayler and Robby Burgess will paint the mural with students from the Art Academy of Cincinnati, said Columbia Tusculum resident Christine Carli. The mural will incorporate the historic, multi-colored Victorian style homes popular throughout the neighborhood. It is inspired by Tusculum Avenue’s unique streetscape, she said. “We’re taking the iconic images of the painted ladies and blending it with an urban meadow theme,” Carli said at a recent meeting. She has been coordinating the community gardens since the idea’s inception early last year. The garden has a combination of raised bed vegetable gardens, native fruit-bearing plants, ornamental grasses and shrubs. More than 100,000 cars pass the site every day and the community garden is part of a larger beautification initiative to improve the neighborhood. The mural is partially funded by a Safe and Clean Grant from Keep Cincinnati Beautiful, private donations and community fundraisers, Carli said. Community Council President Matt Ackermann added that they raised enough money to contribute to the mural costs during a recent pizza and wine fundraiser. “It’s exciting to see it all coming together. The garden has come such a long way since this time last year,” Carli said. “We have 31 raised beds, 20 dedicated gardeners, and tons of community support.”

An open letter from teen’s grieving father

Editor’s note: On March 20 Sean Barton of Terrace Park received the news: His 16-year-old son, Collin, missing since he left a party to walk home around 4 a.m. March 18, had been found dead along a Columbia Township road. He was the apparent victim of an early morning traffic crash that remains under investigation, along with the party and circumstances that culminated in Collin’s death. Sean Barton on Wednesday pushed aside

his own grief long enough to compose this public statement, aimed at helping others: Collin Life is not without tragedy and we all know this. Some tragedies are easier to accept than others. This is one of those tragedies that is seemingly impossible to accept. We are struggling with how to move forward.

The only thing that is keeping us going is our responsibility to each other as a family. We are very private people, especially in our grief. But we also feel a responsibility to our family, friends and community. We are making a statement in the hope to make a difference for others and gain something positive, to make a difference, even to one person. To all of Collin's friends, especially those who were with him his last weekend, it is OK to be sad, but it is not OK to feel guilty. We are all feeling it,

what could we have done differently? This question haunts us all. The number of things and decisions that had to line up in the last 24 hours of Collin's life for this to happen seem impossible but they did. We all have to make thousands of decisions every day. You cannot predict which one will end badly. What you can do? What I am asking you to do, is consider your decisions in a different way. Think about the outcome, what may or may not happen. Think

beyond, is this fun or not? Think beyond what you would want to do and consider what is safe and what your parents would want you to do. And if you need to call home, call home, no matter what you have done or what time it is. One thing we always tell our kids is never go anywhere alone. This is an important rule. Follow it. Don’t be so afraid to tell your parents the truth and to follow the rules. Your life may depend on it. Please, parents, talk to your kids. Kids talk to

your parents. Be strong, parents, don’t be afraid to say no to your kids. Kids, don’t be afraid to say no to your friends. The outpouring of help and support we had searching for Collin was staggering and we thank each and every one of you. From officials, to the media, our friends, family and even complete strangers. My family thanks you. If you feel compelled to memorialize Collin's life, please do so with a contribution to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society or charity of your choice.

Collin

other memorials should be delivered to Mariemont High School. Please do not memorialize the site of the accident or send deliveries to the Barton’s home. - The Barton Family” A family friend, Dr. Andrew J. Ringer of Mayfield Clinic, said he coached Collin on a hockey team for three years. “He was new to the game, but what he lacked in experience, he made up in heart. Always jovial in the locker room, he endeared himself to his teammates.” At Mariemont High School, where Collin was a junior, students began with a gathering March 21, “to grieve together as a school family,” a news release said. They honored Collin’s memory with a moment of silence. Principal Jim Renner said he was “a loyal friend, a great listener, and a talented artist … a wonderful son and a loving brother.” In the investigation, the

motorist who may have struck and killed Barton has told authorities he thinks he fell asleep at the wheel, according to the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office. The driver, 23, told Milford police and Hamilton County sheriff’s authorities he may have “nodded off” due to fatigue. He woke as his silver Honda ran to the edge of Wooster Pike, in Columbia Township, just before he struck something large, possibly a deer, about 5:30 a.m. March 18, said Steve Barnett, sheriff’s spokesman. “He said he had been up all night, but there was no indication of alcohol or anything in the crash report,” Barnett said. Authorities interviewed the motorist about 7:45 a.m. March 18. The man contacted Milford police at 6:45 a.m., and Milford police alerted the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office, which dispatched a

deputy to Milford. No charges have been filed as of March 24 against the driver as the sheriff’s office continues its investigation into the death of the teen, Collin Barton. The Hamilton County Prosecutor’s Office will be consulted once the probe wraps up to determine whether a crime was committed. The Honda was impounded on March 20, the same day Barton’s body was found. He had attended a party in Columbia Township Saturday night and left early Sunday to walk several miles along Wooster Pike to his Terrace Park home. Milford police March 20 made the possible connection of the teen’s disappearance with their Sunday report and contacted Hamilton County authorities, Barnett said. Searchers found his body along an embankment later that day.

Some Terrace Park residents worried by short-term rental By Lisa Wakeland lwakeland@communitypress.com

Nearly a dozen Terrace Park residents recently asked village officials to better regulate rental property in the community. A home at 821 Myrtle Ave. was recently listed for short-term leases on the Vacation Rentals by Owner website, vrbo.com, and many nearby homeowners said they were uncomfortable with the situation. The home is owned by Springhouse LLC in Driggs, Idaho, according to the Hamilton County auditors office. Tim McGonagil, who lives across the street from the home, said he is not against all rentals in the village, but does not like having strangers in the house for only days or weeks at a time. “Not knowing who is coming or going that’s what I have trouble with,” he said. “This affects me every day. It affects the neighborhood.” Many residents who

spoke questioned if tenants were engaged in illegal or illicit activity and said the short-term rentals were inappropriate for a safe, residential neighborhood like Terrace Park. Tom Rogowski, who lives next to the rental house, said the vacation rental by owner seems like it could be a neat idea, but can have serious ramifications if you dig a little deeper. “It can be something

that is very undesirable to your neighborhood and can metastasize,” he said. Rogowski added that this could happen anywhere in Terrace Park and said council needs to “take this issue seriously and do something about it” before it gets worse. Village Solicitor Bob Malloy said all the residents’ concerns warrant a closer investigation and the area is zoned for singlefamily residential use.

Mariemont plans to upgrade fire, police equipment

It can be difficult to determine where to draw the line and Malloy asked, “How do you identify when a single-family use drifts into commercial or some other use that’s not permitted?” Councilman Tom Tepe Jr. said village officials will address the issue and acknowledged that it will be difficult to balance the wishes of the neighbors on Myrtle Avenue with the constitutional rights of the property owner. “(The residents) concerns were heard and are being taken seriously,” he said. “It’s not going to be quick, and it’s not going to be easy.” According to the property listing the home rents for $2,300 per month. Deborah Rogowski suggested tenants be at least 21 years old and a six-month minimum lease with possible variances granted for each specific situation. “There needs to be some accountability and verification of who lives there,” she said.

Mariemont plans to replace another five sets of turnout gear to come into compliance with fire standards. The village reWolter placed multiple sets in the past couple years, and these five will ensure all firefighters have the appropriate gear, Assistant Fire Chief Tim Feichtner said. Feichtner recommended replacing five full sets of equipment each year to stay in compliance with the National Fire Protection Association guidelines, which requires gear to be replaced every 10 years. “If we exceed that, we’re opening ourselves up to a huge liability,” he said.

The Safety Committee report recommended buying five sets each of turnout gear, fire helmets, hoods, firefighting gloves and leather firefighting boots for $14,325. The report also recommended buying two additional helmets for $500. “This does bring us into compliance,” said Councilman and Safety Committee Chairman Dennis Wolter. “In the future, we’re going to incrementally buy this on a schedule to keep us from making a big purchase at one time.” Mariemont Council approved close to $100,000 in replacement gear in late 2010 after equipment malfunctioned during a training exercise. Council is expected to vote on buying five new sets of turnout gear and a new thermal imaging camera for the fire department during the March 26 meeting, which begins at 7:30 p.m. in council chambers, 6907 Wooster Pike.

Hyde Park student top Latin scorer Delamerced helps propel team to win

By Forrest Sellers fsellers@communitypress.com

HYDE PARK — Detailing the tragedy of Mt. Vesuvius was just one of a Tino Delamerced’s recent accomplishments. Delamerced, a Summit Country Day School sophomore, was the top scorer at a recent state Latin competition. A pop-up book he created titled “Pompeii and Vesuvius” was also selected as one of the top five entries in the Best of Show for graphic arts at the event, which was sponsored by the Ohio Junior Classical League. “I’ve been studying Latin since the sixth grade,” said Delamerced, of Hyde Park. “I like

the Greek mythology.” Delamerced said he was inspired to take Latin by his sister, who introduced him to the class. Since then Delamerced has been a top scorer in the state Latin competitions three consecutive years. His cumulative score in a variety of areas ranging from multiple choice questions to points achieved for his graphic arts submission helped he and his classmates on the Latin team win the state championship as well. This is the fourth consecutive year the Summit Country Day School Latin team has attained top honors. “I’ve done this 13 years, and Tino has had the highest scores I’ve seen,” said Summit Country Day School Latin teacher Larry Dean. Dean said both Delamerced’s

and the team’s accomplishments are praiseworthy and ultimately have a benefit in the classroom. “The enthusiasm they have carries over,” he said. “They can appreciate the importance of Latin in classical civilization in

the things they see today.” Dean said Delamerced spends countless hours studying the Latin language. “It’s taught me a lot of things (such as) a good work ethic,” said Delamerced about his in-

volvement in Latin studies. “I’ve met a lot of people, (and) it’s helped me out in other classes.” Delamerced has also been selected as a secretary on the Executive Board of the Ohio Junior Classical League.

using a variety of steps involving simple and compound machines. Usually these machines are made from everyday materials found around the house. Project requirements included having at least three different types of simple machines with 10 steps involved in completing the machine’s “task” – popping a balloon, watering a plant – and maximum machine dimensions of 2 feet wide x 2 feet long x 4 feet tall.

The eighth-graders demonstrated their apparatus for Junior High Science teacher Ms. Ashley Boiano who said, “This project was intended to challenge the eighth-graders to apply their knowledge of simple and complex machines, physics, and problem solving.” Villa students in other grades enjoyed the Rube Goldberg demonstrations and were impressed with the eighth-graders’ creativity and resourcefulness.

BOYS OF SPRING TAKE TO THE DIAMOND

Area full of talented, experienced athletes

Ferrell and Addy each had six wins a season ago, while Montieth was third on the team with a .380 average. The Stingers open at North College Hill April 2.

By Nick Dudukovich and Scott Springer

Summit

presspreps@gmail.com

Experienced starting pitching could give SCD a shot to build off its 17-9 record from last season. Head coach Triffon Callos has four starters returning to the mound in Kenny Kerr, Brad Fisk and Matt Slager, while junior southpaw Tommy Crowl has the potential to be one of the better arms in the league, according to the fifth-year skipper. Crowl was 3-0 with a 1.63 ERA as a sophomore in 2011. The Silver Knights’ lineup will be bolstered by center fielder Gabe Scott, who has committed to play for George Washington. Scott, along with Kerr (P/IF/ OF), Fisk (P, IF), Crowl (P, 1B), as well as Jack Meininger (2B, SS) and Doug Compton (OF, P) could give the Silver Knights a potent offense. “I feel like we have the strongest lineup, one through nine in order, in my eight-year tenure at Summit,” Callos said. Summit, which competes at Division III, should be tested often. They will play six D-I squads and five D-II teams this season.

As area baseball teams practice their swings and loosen up their arms, the Eastern Hills Journal previewed the upcoming season:

Clark Montessori

Jon Breen takes over the Cougars’ baseball program after two years as an assistant coach. Last season, Clark was 8-8 and the Miami Valley Conference-Grey division champs. Michael Gaines, Sam Johnson and Mecca Bosley are considered the Cougars’ top prospects. Gaines is a senior outfielder/ pitcher: Johnson a junior pitcher/ shortstop/ first baseman; and Bosley is a junior catcher/pitcher. Breen is also expecting contributions from senior Daniel Brantley, juniors Karl Cheney, Brian Fricker and Jack Novak, and sophomore Jordan Terry.

CCD

The Indians will field a young team looking to continue to get better as the season goes on and be competitive in the Miami Valley Conference, according to athletic director Greg Ross. CCD’s lineup should be sparked by senior Reeve Hoover, who hit over .500 in 2011. For his efforts last spring, Hoover was named All-MVC and Division IV second-team, all-state. The Indians are coached by veteran skipper Tim Dunn. The squad’s next scheduled game is against Clark March 29.

Walnut Hills

Seven Hills’ Harrison Addy should contribute at the plate, as well as on the mound this spring.

Mariemont

Head coach Joe Regruth returns to Mariemont in 2012 with two talented pitchers at the front of his rotation. Both Eric Nerl and Erik Swanson had breakouts years for the Warriors in 2011, and Regruth expects both are capable of repeating their successes. “They are both college-bound pitchers, and it’s really nice to walk into a game knowing they’ve got to be arguably the best player on the field, and that’s how I feel about both of those guys,” Regruth said. Nerl, who is committed to Eastern Kentucky, went 5-1 with 70 strikeouts in 51.2 innings last spring. Swanson, who is still choosing a school, also went 5-1 with 52 strikeouts in 36.2 innings. The duo will also produce sparks for the Warriors’ lineup as they join Matt Stewart, who led the team with a .440 average in 2011. Junior Nick Jones is also expected to contribute.

Moeller

The Crusaders have had 16 straight winning seasons and were tied for first in the Greater Catholic League-South division

Mariemont's Erik Swanson will team up with Eric Nerl to form a formidable one-two punch in the Warriors’ rotation. FILE PHOTO last season. Coach Tim Held returns six starters in shortstop Jordan Simpson, second baseman Ty Amann, pitcher John Tanner, pitcher Brian Burkhart, pitcher/ outfielder Ryan LeFevers and utilityman Jackson Phipps. LeFevers stole 25 bases as a junior last season, one shy of the Moeller record. The career mark is 49, putting LeFevers well within reach. Four Crusaders have already signed to play in college (Simpson, Amann, pitcher Phillip Diehl, catcher/first basemanBrad Macciocchi) and four others are commanding attention in Cameron Whitehead, Justin Wampler, Riley Mahan and Zack Shannon.

Summit starter Tommy Crowl is expected to resume his role in the Silver Knights’ rotation after he posted a 1.63 ERA during the 2011 season.

Shannon, a sophomore from Amelia, will be new to GCL varsity competition, but is well-known to the baseball community from his play with the Midland organization and his verbal commitment to Ohio State. Next for Moeller is a March 28 date with Elder at the University of Cincinnati’s Marge Schott Stadium, followed by a road game with St. Xavier on March 30.

Purcell Marian does have two GCL-Central second-team players scheduled to return in senior infielder E.J. Burnett and junior outfielder Kevin Beyersdorfer. Burnett hit .351 for the Cavaliers, while Beyersdorfer was right behind at .333. Trent West coaches Purcell Marian, which plays at Roger Bacon March 30, before returning home to play Badin April 2.

Purcell Marian

Seven Hills

The Cavaliers had a rough year in the Greater Catholic League-Central, with an 0-10 league mark and a 1-15 record overall that included 15 straight losses after an opening win against North College Hill.

The Stingers return in 2012 after advancing to last season’s DIV district finals. Seven Hills should be sparked by pitcher Ryan Ferrell, shortstop/pitcher Harrison Addy and outfielder Matt Montieth.

Second-year coach Dan Finley will try to right the Eagles’ ship this season after a two-win debut in 2011. The upside is Walnut Hills returns eight starters including junior pitcher/first baseman Jake Desch, junior second baseman Tom Rohlfer, sophomore pitcher/outfielder Mike Seliga, senior shorstop Marcus Jackson and junior pitcher/outfielder Zach Kamura. “We were very young and inexperienced last year,” Finley said. “We have everyone back and our young players have bought in. The experience from last year, albeit a bad one, and growing pains should have us prepared this year.” They play host to Milford March 28 and Turpin March 30.

Withrow

The Tigers were league champions last year in the Cincinnati Metro Athletic Conference, finishing 10-6 overall and 10-2 in the league. For that, Rodney Spaulding was named coach of the year. Set to return are senior first baseman Ahsahi Stewart (CMAC first team), sophomore catcher Malik Bland and senior second baseman Sha’khil Kelly (both CMAC second team) and senior shortstop Dionte Riley (CMAC honorable mention). Stewart and Kelly led the Tigers in hitting at .500 and .481, respectively. Bland led the team in homers his freshman year with three. On the mound, Erron Nichols racked up three wins for Withrow as junior. Withrow’s home opener is against Turpin March 28.

Crusaders volley with new coach Team to travel to Illinois tourney By Scott Springer sspringer@communitypress.com

KENWOOD — The Moeller High School brass kept it in-house when long-time volleyball coach Greg Ulland stepped down after the state tournament run last year. Heading up the program now is former Crusader Matt McLaughlin, who was an assistant under Ulland before.

Last spring, Moeller made it to the state championship game before losing to Lakewood St. Edward in the final. Ulland was Greater Catholic League-South co-coach of the year (with La Salle’s Heather York) for his efforts. “We have five returning seniors and seven players back from last year’s state runner-up team,” McLaughlin said of the 2012 Crusaders. “We’re a little bit younger, but our juniors went undefeated

last year as sophomores at the JV level. They’re bringing their own level of experience.” The new group will strive to return to the state title game and stay in line with the numbers put up by last year’s squad (23-5 and 8-0 in the GCL-South). “We have some really talented volleyball players and really strong athletes,” McLaughlin said. “There’s some really solid teams out there. It’s going to be a tall task to get back there.”

That said, the Crusaders do have some tall players in 6-8 Jake Leeseman, 6-5 Casey Pieper and 6-3 Sam Geraci, all juniors. The five seniors are Michael Budde, Nick Palopoli, Garrett Morrissey, Jacob Schaffer and Matt Kanetkze. “It’s a small senior class but very dedicated and committed,” McLaughlin said. “They’re all great representatives of Moeller and our program.” A variety of athletes make up the Crusader vol-

roll, Moeller goes to La Salle March 29, before heading out of town to the Windy City for more tough contests. “This is our third year going to Chicago to the Tiger Classic,” McLaughlin said. “It’s an invitationonly tournament and the level of competition is outstanding. It’s great for our guys to see some teams outside the state and play a high level of competition.” Once back from Illinois, the Crusaders first home game is April12 with Elder.

leyball team, including some from the football team (Geraci, Morrissey, Palopolo and Pieper). Anyone not occupied with another activity has been setting and spiking for months. “All of our players play club, so they’ve been conditioning and working out since November,” McLaughlin said. “They play locally here for Cincinnati Attack. Most are playing year ‘round.” After early matches with Centerville and Car-

JOURNAL

CH@TROOM March 21 question Should the U.S. release some of its oil reserves to keep the price of gasoline down and help the economic recovery? Why or why not?

“Releasing oil from our strategic reserves would be like offering an aspirin to a cancer patient. It has a slight chance of relieving short term pain, but does absolutely nothing towards creating a cure. In 2008 when President Bush released oil from our reserves it brought short term relief, but to create longer term relief he also signed an executive order to expedite permit approval on federal lands to create additional long term supply. When Obama released reserves the first time, he didn’t take the secondary measures Bush had taken and therefore there was a minimal short term affect on the market as those reserves were quickly absorbed into the supply curve. “Yes, there is a greater global demand today than ever before, and yes we would all like to see the advent of alternative renewable energy sources. Unfortunately, the reality is that those sources are currently nowhere near ready for prime time. After all, cars run on gasoline, they don’t run on wind mills and we don’t currently have the technology to put a battery in a car that makes a significant difference. The solution for the near term (the next 20 years or so) is pretty simple. We need to ensure that supply keeps up with demand as we continue to develop realistic alternatives.” “There is an old adage that you shouldn’t quit your current job until your future job is secured. The same hold true with energy. Our very existence relies on the idea of having usable energy available to sustain ourselves. If we take away our existing sources of that energy on the “hope” that these new energy sources quickly pan out, then we are taking an incredible and unnecessary risk with our future. Taking the first step of releasing reserves can create short term relief, but what’s really needed is a longer term cure.” M.J.E.

NEXT QUESTION What are your expectations for the Reds this season? Do you have an Opening Day tradition? If so, what is it? Every week The Eastern Hills Journal asks readers a question they can reply to via e-mail. Send your answers to espangler@communitypress.com with Chatroom in the subject line.

“Absolutely! I’m tired of those OPEC countries blackmailing us. Maybe we should use out own resources and let them eat sand.” J.K. “Absolutely not! Releasing strategic oil reserves is nothing more than a temporary injection that fixes nothing. It would only be a political ploy, not a substitute for a coherent energy policy that would include aggressive exploration and drilling domestically as well as approving the Keystone pipeline. This ‘president’ is an utter and complete failure in many regards, but especially in the area of energy policy. It is time we find a leader who can actually provide true leadership on this issue. R.W.J. “Oil is a global commodity, so while all politicians, especially those running for election, like to tell us they are in control, they aren’t. Releasing U.S. strategic reserves may have a short term benefit on the price of gas, especially if the problem is a fire at a refinery or a hurricane, but it will never address the long term issue. “The U.S., 5 percent of the world population, consumes 25 percent of the world’s oil, and when times are good we move to the suburbs and buy large SUVs for one person to commute in. The uncomfortable truth is that the U.S. is energy greedy. What we need is a constructive energy policy, and the oil companies need to remake themselves into ‘energy’ companies, not ‘oil’ companies so that they happily join with others to meet the community need for power from renewable sources and continue to make a profit. Lest that seems too

altruistic, consider that Duke is pushing us to use compact fluorescent bulbs rather than build new power stations. Good policy can also be good business if ceos just think the right way.” D.R.

rently develop some alternative fuel options. Our planet is already suffering the effects of our total lack of concern for its dwindling resources and we will all pay the price! ‘Nuff said!” M.M.

“This would be one step in controlling the price of gasoline, but there are other things that probably would be more effective, but will not be done because of the left wing opposition in our Federal government. One such idea was the Keystone pipeline. Earlier this month, Obama was successful in getting the Democratcontrolled Senate to block plans to expedite the completion of this project. Another would be a discontinuance of the inefficient ‘solar windmills.’ Another would be tapping into our tremendous natural gas resources. Still another would be off shore drilling, and drilling in other reserves within our country’s borders, including 'fracking.' Well meaning 'environmentalists' have been effective at blocking these things, consequently making us more dependent on mid-East oil sources.” B.B.

“No. Those reserves are for emergencies. We shouldn’t raid rainy day funds like the city and county do. The problem is supply and demand. Use less and drill for more. That’s the only long term solution.” P.C.

“The primary issue here is addressing our country’s overwhelming dependence on oil/gasoline. Gas prices are going through the roof for what I believe are three main reasons (all of which are blamed on President Obama, but none of which rest solely on his shoulders - along with all the other government ills he was handed when he was first elected!): the greed of our gasoline producers/dealers, our sluggish development of alternative fuels and our absolute refusal to give up the giant, gas-guzzling SUVs and luxury cars on our highways. Since we are effectively held hostage by the major oilproducing countries of the Middle East, we may have to release some of our own reserves - or perhaps consider drilling in areas where known oil sources are located, but the best way we can reduce our oil dependency is to stop manufacturing gigantic Urban Assault Vehicles and concentrate on high fuel-efficient/low emission vehicles while we concur-

“No. This plan is similar to the tax-the-rich plan. This action will require redefining the whole tax code first. Releasing oil from reserves would be a part of an overall energy plan, I would think. Our elected leaders have neither plan, so ‘knee-jerk’ reactions as stupid as both of these are typical of our leadership.” K.P. “Previous releases caused the price to go down for less than five days. At the present time each American uses 25 barrels of oil per year. In China each Chinese uses two barrels of oil a year. In the future the demand for oil will continue to increase. Get used to it. Any release of ‘emergency oil reserves’ is a political strategy with no real affect on the price. It has been done in the past and that has what occurred. Folks seem to have no memory for history. The Americans pay very low prices for gasoline compared to the rest of the world. Ten years ago I paid almost $5 a gallon in Europe. Currently Germans pay over $6 a gallon. Americans continue to show their ignorance of how circumstances price commodities. Oil is in global demand which has been and will continue to increase in the future. Drilling at home will not reduce the price either. Additional crude oil will be sold to the highest bidder. Drilling at home will not preclude selling crude to foreign countries. Why would you keep it in the USA and get less for your crude?” J.S.D. “Absolutely not. The reserve is for emergencies, such as a shut-

down of major suppliers that would effect the national supply. The supply is not the problem. It is the lack of current refinery capacity due to shut downs and no real increase in capacity for years. The whole issue of rising prices is controlled by big oil and the speculators. What is needed is tighter control by the Feds on what is going down, mainly the gouging of the users of petro products. I realize this is antiAmerican per the right wing, but the ‘let the market’ do its thing does not work, just look at deregulation of the savings & loan, Wall Street, housing, etc .... and anyone who believes the ultra-conservatives are living in a fantasy world.” J.Z. “The strategic oil reserve is too small compared to our current consumption to help with the price of oil today. It may be useful in countering short term effects of passing events but historically its use has been managed wisely. “Our current problem is due to the ridiculous lack of vision that has blinded this nation after 40 years of dependence on imported fuel. We cannot drill our way out of this because we already used all the shallow high quality resources, and everything left will be deeper, further away, and therefore more expensive. And ‘more expensive’ is the core of our current recession. Keystone won’t provide cheap oil. It will just lock in our addiction at about today’s prices. “We can’t end our oil dependence over night, and we don’t know how to displace all of it with sustainable technologies, but we can cut our use in half with efficiency, and replace some of the rest with electric vehicles, better public transportation, better planning in the distribution of goods and much more. The solutions are much cheaper than continuing to ignore the problem. And the same technologies which are making renewable electricity cheap will drive the cost of batteries down and give us future transportation options which are much better than what we have today.” N.F.

The U.S. must avoid Greece’s slippery slope

If you have been watching the news lately, you can not have missed the rioting in Greece. It is sad to see what is happening there. The destruction not only will cause Edward greater hardLevy ships for the COMMUNITY PRESS very people GUEST COLUMNIST who are rioting, but will create great costs to restore the businesses that produce wealth for the economy. None of this should have happened. Prudent management of an economy rather than politi-

cal favoritism to special groups is the root cause of the problem. If nothing else, the Greek public should recall their history when former democracies were destroyed in similar circumstances. Without major changes in our financial structure, we will have the same problems. Except that our public is heavily armed. There will be the historic riots but they may be bloody. I certainly hope I am wrong. The lesson to be learned here is that humanity doesn’t change. Corruption and political power are unshakably related. The founders of our Constitution were well aware of this. They took great care to create a republic rather than a democracy for this very reason.

One of my favorite quotes is attributed to either Benjamin Franklin or James Madison. On leaving a meeting one was asked whether we would have a republic or a democracy. The answer was, "A republic if we can keep it." The difference is small, but powerful. Democracy translated from the original Greek means power of the people. Republic means public law. In a republic the people rule, but law prevails. We are drifting toward a political despotism where, like Greece and several other countries, power has created political favoritism. The ultimate result will be a dictatorship where the wealthy will flee and the average citizen will become a depen-

dent slave of the entrenched bureaucracy. You don’t have to look any farther than Cuba or Venezuela. The good news is that we still have time to avoid the rioting and bloodshed if we balance our budget and reform our tax system. Much needs to be done. Every citizen should be involved in the process. This will mean some outlandish benefits will have to be pared back to reasonable terms. The age for Social Security will have to be raised. Taxes will have to be adjusted so that all citizens have an "ownership" involvement in the national budget. Especially important is that the tax system should make it profitable to hire people and

an incentive to take a job. Getting people back to work and balancing the budget should not be too difficult if the American people would become less political and more patriotic. We are rapidly destroying our country by antagonistic arguments based on mindless political propaganda. We have put ourselves in a position that will take all citizens to remedy by making sacrifices in the best interests of peace and future security. It is worth it for the sake of our children

UNFINISHED BUSINESS

SCD wins state title By Nick Dudukovich ukovich@communitypress.com

COLUMBUS — For Holden Hertzel, the task was simple: Finish what his dad started 32 years ago. Hertzel’s dad Rob, who died of cancer in November, was a part of the 1980 Silver Knights team that lost in the state final by six points. Summit’s 6-foot-5 center said his father told him that coming up short at state was one of the biggest disappointments of his life. But the current version of the Silver Knights wouldn’t be denied as Summit won its first basketball title with a 53-37 win over Portsmouth in the D-III championship game at Ohio State’s Schottenstein Center March 24. Hertzel scored seven points and grabbed four rebounds. “(Winning state) is huge for me,” Hertzel said. “I felt like I needed to finish the job that (my dad) set out. We were able to finish the job.” Westwood’s Kevin Johnson, who scored 11 points while shooting 4-of-9 from the floor, led Summit’s efforts. He also dished eight assists while grabbing six boards. Johnson got into foul trouble early in the first half, but came out after halftime determined to secure a lead. “In the second half, I needed to step it up to make a bigger lead,” Johnson said. “So I knew my team depended on me to do that, so I put the game in my hands and let it flow.” Summit also got a motivational boost from the efforts of guard Antonio Woods, who injured his left knee during the team’s 49-41 semifinal win over Bedford St. Peter Chanel. Head coach Michael Bradley said it didn’t look as if Woods would play on the eve of the big game. Bradley said Woods warmed

up on game day, felt good, and gave it a go. Woods scored eight points and grabbed three boards in spite of his injured leg. “Antonio Woods is one of best players in the state, along with Kevin and the kid is one of the nicest kids I’ve ever been around, and mentally and physically one of the toughest kids I’ve seen,” Bradley said. “We are not in this position right now without him taking part in this game today.” Tommy Kreyenhagen, Jake Rawlings of Loveland and Mike Barwick also played stellar games. Kreyenhagen started for Woods and scored seven points while Barwick added 11 points and four boards. Rawlings scored seven points and played tenacious defense. Summit as a team earned a strong reputation for playing strong defense throughout the year. Heading into the state tournament, the Silver Knights allowed opponents to score just 34.5 points per game. “We have a coach in Patrick Cosgrove who is one of the best

He’s came up with (strategies)…so I give most of the credit to him for this run,” Bradley said. “He scouts, he sees, he puts a plan together and the kids execute. Granted Kevin Johnson is a heck of player and Jake Rawlings has done an unreal job the past two games. They just bought into our system and what we did.”

With the win, Bradley won his first state championship in just his second season at the helm. “This is the ultimate goal of every team when you start the season and we are thrilled to have had the run we had this year,” Bradley said. “We couldn’t be happier to bring the first championship to Summit…it’s just an amazing accomplishment.”

Rita shares recipes for Easter, Passover This is one of my favorite columns, as I get to share recipes that are so meaningful to me.

You can leave the ham out at room temperature 30 minutes or so before roasting to take the chill off for better roasting. 1 cup pear nectar 1 cup orange juice 1 cup packed brown sugar 1 cup honey Pumpkin pie spice to taste: Start with 2 teaspoons (optional)

Preheat oven to 375. Mix nectar and orange juice. Bake ham for 20 minutes, basting every 5 minutes. Mix brown sugar, honey and spice. Brush over ham and bake until internal temperature reaches 140, basting every once in a while. This takes about an hour for a 7pound ham, and about 1-1/2 hours for a 10-pound ham.

Rita's recipe for naturally colored Easter eggs uses items such as onion skins and red cabbage. THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD.

Rita’s naturally colored eggs It’s a great lesson in food chemistry for the kids, plus they learn to be good stewards of their environment. Eggs made with yellow onion skins will be pale yellow to dark amber. Red onion skins produce eggs that are brick/brown red. Beet juice turns them a pretty pink. Red cabbage is the winner: it makes beautiful teal blue eggs! Turmeric makes the eggs brilliant yellow and reminds me of the marigolds my dad used to plant in our tiny front lawn. For every cup of dye, use a tablespoon or so of

clear vinegar. Stir that in after straining, or as directed. These dyes take longer than commercial dyes. In fact, I leave the eggs in the red cabbage dye up to 12 hours. Use boiled eggs. Onion skins: In a saucepan, place as many papery outer skins of yellow or red onions that you have. Cover with a couple inches of water. Bring to a boil, lower to a simmer and cook until onion skins have colored the water. Strain. Red cabbage: Use the onion skin method for thinly sliced red cabbage. Beet juice: I use juice from canned beets.

Turmeric: Put 4 tablespoons turmeric powder in 2 cups water. Stir and place in pan. Cook until it starts to boil. Remove, let cool but don’t strain. Place eggs in dye, stirring to coat. Let sit in dye until desired color is obtained. When you remove the eggs, gently wipe off with soft cloth or run very quickly under running water to remove turmeric powder.

Ballet school gives back to community By Lisa Wakeland lwakeland@communitypress.com

On a recent Wednesday morning, one room of the Cincinnati Early Learning Center was filled students pretending to be birds, monkeys, leopards and snakes. Teacher Kara Louis then prepared to show them more creative dance movements. Louis was at the center, located inside Riverview East Academy on Kellogg Avenue, as part of the Bal-

let Theatre Midwest’s “Dance for Your Life” program, which uses the arts to promote good health. Nancy Fountain, director of Ballet Theatre Midwest in Columbia Tusculum, said they received a grant to develop the program, and she wanted to focus on combating childhood obesity and introducing dance to underserved communities. The classes are tailored to different age ranges, one for older students and one for younger children,

and Fountain said each program will emphasize elements of cardiovascular training, coordination and muscle movement all within an artistic framework. “I hope it improves their overall health and increases their activity level, but there is also the artistic component,” she said. “I hope we can spark some excitement and interest in dance and give them a different way of using their bodies.” Louis said classes for the older students are a litPreschoolers Soledad Gragsten, left, Kairi Kenyon and Ava Miller-Neal act like snakes during the "Dance for Your Life" program.

For the younger children, she said it’s more about creative movement and letting them explore how their body moves to different types of music. “It’s very inspiring for me to watch them have such a good time with it,” Louis said. “It’s so nice to see them enjoy the movement and watch how they interpret it.” This five-week program was offered at both Riverview East Academy in the East End and the Rothenberg Preparatory Academy in Over-theRhine. “I’d love to continue if we could because it’s something that’s brand new and completely different,” Fountain said.

Zoo flowers bloom earlier this year After a mild Cincinnati winter, the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden is ready to bloom with more color and tulips than ever before. Zoo Blooms, dubbed “Tulip Mania,” sprouts in April and will showcase more than 100,000 tulips and solidify the zoo’s standing as one of the largest tulip displays in the Midwest. As one of two accredited botanical gardens in Ohio, the zoo will also display more than one million daffodils, hyacinths, flowering trees, bushes other spring bulbs exploding with color throughout the zoo. “Due to the mild winter I would expect the tulips to bloom a little earlier than normal,” said Steve Foltz, director of horticulture at the Cincinnati Zoo. “Typically mid-April is the perfect time to see everything in full bloom. This year, we seem to be a week or so ahead of schedule, so we may see the color explosion Easter weekend.” To accompany the beautiful backdrop, the Cincinnati Zoo will also feature free concerts to rock the garden every Thursday evening during Zoo Blooms 6-8:30 p.m. Admission is free after 5 p.m. (Parking not included). The Tunes & Blooms concert series is a compilation of Cincinnati’s finest and most-respected music veterans playing together in the zoo’s beautiful gardens. This year’s concert series kicks off on April 5 with performances by The Newbees and The Seedy Seeds, followed by the Comet Bluegass All Stars and Magnolia Mountain on April 12, The Tillers and Shiny and the Spoon on April 19 and Jake Speed and the Freddies and The Turkeys on April 26. The zoo’s Easter Celebration will be 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, April 7. This event will feature treat stations, children’s activities, popular animal egg hunts and visits by the Easter Bunny.

MARCH 28, 2012 • EASTERN HILLS JOURNAL • B7

RELIGION For more than 3,300 years, Jewish families the world over have gathered around the festive table on the eve of Passover to commemorate the Exodus from Egypt and celebrate the “Seder” feast. This is no ordinary meal; the Passover Seder (which actually means “order”) incorporates fifteen multi-sensory steps which reach deep into the human psyche in every way possible and all at once: Rich melodies, dynamic visuals, prayers and stories, even the visceral senses of taste, smell and touch are part of the interminable tradition. The Seder is a time to retell the story of the Exodus and the history of our nation’s birth, but also much more. The observances at the Seder-table allow one to actually re-experience a modern-day Exodus; facilitating one’s own spiritual rebirth and enabling him or her to forge a new path toward a life of holiness and spiritual meaning. The Seder is a whole-person experience, empowering each man, woman and child with a renewed sense of inner freedom and spiritual resolve. The Passover Haggadah, which records the Seder’s narrative, says that in each generation man must see himself as if he had personally gone out of Egypt. Judaism teaches that Egypt and its nefarious Pharaoh symbolize the negative forces that constrict man. The slavery in Egypt represents the emotional and psychological shackles that confine and enslave the human spirit, constraining one’s ability to live up to his or her fullest spiritual potential. Each year on Passover, as nature experiences its own season of springtime renewal, we participate in the Seder tradition and experience our own renewal and rebirth. At the Seder table we commemorate the Exodus from Egypt and the birth of the Jewish nation over three millennia ago – and at the same time embark on a modern-day journey to spiritual freedom. This year, in Cincinnati, the Chabad Jewish Center is opening its doors once again for their community-wide public Passover Seder. This special event is open to all members of the Jewish community, regardless of affiliation, synagogue membership or financial means. Conducted Friday, April 6, at the Chabad Jewish Center, the unique Seder experience will be led by Rabbi Yisroel Mangel and will feature explanation and commentary based on mystical and Kabbalistic insights, humor and song. A sumptuous four-course holiday dinner will be served with hand-baked Matzah and choice of wine. Admission is $32 for Adults, $22 for children For more information and to RSVP, call 793-5200, or visit www.ChabadBA.com. Chabad Jewish Center is at 3977
