BECAUSE COMMUNITY MATTERS

Hyde Park Council votes no on speed hump By Forrest Sellers

fsellers@communitypress.com

The line in the pavement shows where Delta Avenue transitions from one lane back to two headed toward the square, and from two lanes to one headed toward Erie Avenue. Residents have said the new configuration makes it difficult to turn out of side streets and less safe for bicyclists heading through the square. LISA WAKELAND/THE COMMUNITY PRESS

Have lane changes made Delta Avenue

LESS SAFE? By Lisa Wakeland

lwakeland@communitypress.com

Construction and the new lane configuration on Delta Avenue is causing problems for some Mt. Lookout residents. “We cannot get out onto Delta without waiting and waiting and waiting,” resident Tony Raabe said of the traffic on side streets. “Even with the new configuration the sight distances are severely restricted. When you’re stopped on Glengyle (Avenue) turning onto Delta, south or northbound, it’s unsafe. You see the same thing happening on Hardisty (Avenue).” At the end of March the city of Cincinnati began work on the “road diet” plan that includes reducing the number of driving lanes from two in each direction to one in each direction with a center left-turn lane. The plan also keeps parking on both sides of the street and includes a 5-foot-wide bike lane in either travel direction. The bike lanes are supposed to make it safer for cyclists,

but Raabe, who also rides his bike through the neighborhood, said it’s “never been more unsafe” for those riding north through Mt. Lookout Square. Though the majority of Delta Avenue will be one travel lane it will transition back to two lanes as the road approaches Mt. Lookout Square from either direction. In that area it’s a “disappearing bike lane,” Raabe said, and cyclists used to have the second travel lane as a safety buffer from the vehicles headed toward Erie Avenue. “There is no bike lane in the new configuration and the further constriction of traffic flow ... is an unresolved traffic improvement,” he said. Kim Rice, who owns Keepsake Photography and is part of the Mt. Lookout Community Council Board of Directors, said the symbols that identify the bike lanes are not in place yet and that can cause confusion for some drivers along Delta Avenue. Community Council President Chris Lacerenza said they haven’t received much feedback since the construction be-

gan, but he’ll relay the concerns about the bike lanes and traffic backup on the side streets to city officials. When the city first proposed the change last year some residents expressed concern about the plan increasing congestion and causing traffic backups throughout the neighborhood. But city officials countered that the “road diet” doesn’t reduce the road’s capacity, the left-turn lane would make it safer, and the bike lanes add a buffer between parked cars and traffic. “It’s always been difficult, but it’s gotten worse with all the cars being funneled into one lane,” Raabe said. “I think we have a safety issue, and it’s not as safe as it used to be.” In addition to the re-striping and repaving project, the city plans to install a new traffic signal at the intersection of Delta and Kroger avenues. The project is expected to be finished by November. Want more Mt. Lookout news? Follow Lisa Wakeland on Twitter @lisawakeland.

HYDE PARK — The Hyde Park Neighborhood Council has voted to recommend that Cincinnati officials not install a speed hump on Paxton Avenue. This decision came after Paxton Avenue residents expressed concerns about a speed hump at previous meetings. “I just think we are supporting neighbors on Pasquinucci this,” said board President Rob Pasquinucci. “It’s clear it’s something they don’t want.” A request to install a speed hunp was made several months ago. Supporters of the speed hump said it would reduce excessive speed along Paxton Avenue. Opponents, though, said a speed hump will actually create a more dangerous situation. 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 cutthrough traffic. He said speed humps are generally not installed on hills with a grade greater than 7 percent. 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, he said. The city had conducted a postcard survey of residents near the proposed locations. Curtis Hines, a senior engineer with the Cincinnati Department of Transportation and Engineering, said 46 postcard surveys were sent to residents on Paxton Avenue, Paxton Knoll Lane and some of the corner properties on Paxton Avenue. He said 57 percent of the respondents were in favor of a speed hump. Residents attending a special meeting in March, though, largely opposed installation of a speed hump saying it posed a safety risk because of potential water runoff at one of the locations and the challenges some motorists might face driving over a hump during icy conditions. “I do think we’re in good stead supporting residents in that area,” said board member Carl Uebelacker. The speed hump would likely impact more than just the residents who were surveyed, he said. “I’m thrilled they recognized upper Paxton’s discontent with the proposal,” said Paxton Avenue resident Dee Bardes, adding that she hoped the speed hump would be opposed by the Mt. Lookout Community Council as well. Several Mt. Lookout Community Council board members attended the March meeting as well. The Hyde Park Neighborhood Council recommended sending a letter of opposition regarding the speed hump to Moore.

During its April meeting, the Hyde Park Neighborhood Council voted in opposition to a speed hump on Paxton Avenue. Although some residents petitioned for a speed hump several months ago, a number of other residents on Paxton Avenue have spoken out against the plan. The opponents expressed safety concerns which council took into consideration in their decision.FORREST SELLERS/THE COMMUNITY PRESS

Cincinnati plans new piece of Ohio River Trail By Lisa Wakeland lwakeland@communitypress.com

It’s “the missing link,” but it won’t be that way for too much longer. The city of Cincinnati is planning a new 2.2-mile segment of the Ohio River Trail along Kellogg Avenue. It would connect the existing trail at Salem Road, near the Magrish Nature Preserve, to a piece at Sutton Road in Anderson Township, near Coney Island. “We have trails to the east and the west, and this is the piece we need to make the link,” said Diego Jordan, an urban

designer with the city’s Department of Transportation and Engineering. “(Discussions have been) going on for quite some time, and it’s finally starting to come to reality.” Construction is still a few years away, but city officials are gathering feedback from residents and property owners along the route. Kim Leist, who lives on Kellogg Avenue, said the construction and trail location would primarily affect her neighbors across the street, and she’s excited they’re making the connection. “I think it’s a great thing,” she said. “I like to walk, so now I don’t have to go to Lunken (Airport) — I can just walk across the street. I think it’s going to be nice, and I hope it’s safer for bikes.” Robert Mraz, who also lives on Kellogg Avenue, said he has some issues with the current alignment. “My biggest concern is they’re going to

But outside of those immediate concerns, Mraz is excited about the project. “I think it’s going to be awesome,” he said. “We should have a trail, every other city does.” Jim Coppock, senior engineer for the city’s transportation department, said they’ll consider all feedback and adjust the plans as needed before having a more detailed plan to present to the public in October.

Website leads way to camp By Stephanie Salmons ssalmons@communitypress.com

When Brennan Sweeney was wanting to provide his 9-year-old son more summer enrichment opportunities, he couldn’t find the level of information about available programs he needed to make a decision. “There was really no place where I went to find all the listings,” said Sweeney, 36, of Union, Ky.. So the former business consultant and entrepreneur took matters into his own hands. His new website, www.campfinder.co, developed with Mt. Lookout resident J.B. Woodruff, features a comprehensive list of camp programs and user reviews with focused program searches and social media capabilities, a press release says. The site lets parents shop around for the best program for their child’s specific personality, needs and interest. At the same time, it eliminates the need to visit camp fairs or scour the Internet for information. “What better way to

find a great camp program than hearing about it from people you know or who have experienced it?” Woodruff said in the release. “We’re harnessing the power of word of mouth referrals and leveraging the power of the web to help parents find the best memory-making experiences for their kids.” Sweeney said the pair began working on the site last summer and launched it in early February. There are currently more than 400 unique programs listed on the site right now. The goal is to have every camp program in the Cincinnati area available on the site with details “so parents can really make the best decisions on camps for their children.” It’s currently free for camps to list information and for parents to search.

Terrace Park teacher is published author

A Terrace Park Elementary School teacher can now add “published author” to her list of accomplishments. Second grade teacher Maria Childs recently celebrated the publication of her book “Firefighters Don’t” with a pre-release book signing at Terrace Park Elementary. The book hit stores on March 25. Childs wrote the book as a project requirement while completing her Masters in the Art of Teaching through the Ohio Writing Project at Miami University. “I always wanted to be children’s lit author. My husband, Scott, is a firefighter so a lot of what is included in the book are things that my kids actually did,” said Childs . “A year ago, Scott pulled the story off the computer, knowing that being published was a goal of mine, and then asked our

friend Craig [Forster] to do illustrations and create the book for all of us just to have and enjoy. In the process Scott sent it out to a few publishers, and one of them agreed to move forward with it!” Childs said she chose the subject of her book because being a firefighter involves the whole family and is how her family operates. “The main character encompasses all of my kids and it takes me back to their childhood. The things they did when they were younger seemed so frustrating as they happened, but now I look back fondly and think about how fast time goes with them at that age.” Her children are now older – Rylan is in eighth grade, Connor is a junior in high school and Cameron recently graduated from the Citadel and is in the Army.

One of Childs’ favorite things about being a firefighter’s wife is the extended family that comes with the position. “It’s not just a job he does or goes to. The firefighters have such a strong commitment to each other and are so supportive of each other and each other’s families.“ Childs said that she couldn’t imagine launching her book anywhere else. “There are just so many things that I like about teaching here in the Mariemont City School District. It’s a small district and everyone values education so much and there is such a strong support system,” said Childs. “Everyone knows everyone, so I can build strong relationships with the parents. I love that I have taught siblings of my current students. The schools are the whole focus of the community.”

Ursuline Dance Team named grand champions at two competitions

Ursuline Academy’s Dance Team attended the Ameridance Heartland National Championships and received the national champion title in pom, prop, and hip hop, the best choreography award, the high point award for prop and hip hop, and ultimately, the grand champions of the entire event.

The team competed in the All Star division in the most competitive competition which incorporates routines from many different circuits, and won first place at US Finals in Hip Hop with the routine. “We are so proud of the young women on the Dance

Team for this fantastic accomplishment,” Ursuline President Sharon Redmond, said. “These students competed with the best of the best from across the country. They’ve demonstrated that dedication and teamwork will lead to success.” Hanna Geisler ‘14 of Indian Hill and Madeline Johnson ’14 of Liberty Township presented the trophy to Redmond and Ursuline Principal Tom Barhorst at an all-school assembly.

Walnut Hills finds way to spread talent on track, field By Scott Springer sspringer@communitypress.com

St. Ursula Academy sophomore Sammy Gilbert warms up before a 3-2 road win over Mercy April 23. MARK D. MOTZ/THE COMMUNITY PRESS

SUA sophomore emerges as central figure on mound By Mark D. Motz mmotz@communitypress.com

E. WALNUT HILLS — Leave it to the catcher to tell about the pitcher. Or the senior to tell about the sophomore. “Here’s the quote for Sammy Gilbert if you need it,” St. Ursula Academy senior catcher Lydia Spade offered without solicitation. “Just say, ‘I catch everything.’” OK, but who is talking there, Spade or Gilbert, a sophomore pitcher and left fielder for the Bulldogs? “Good question,” Spade said. “Both of us. If I throw it back high to her, she catches it. If she throws it in the dirt to me, I block it. We catch everything.” Gilbert has caught fire on the mound for SUA, emerging from a preseason group of four possible pitchers on first-year head coach Jon Sheehan’s club to become one of two starters. A shoulder injury to junior Megan Chapman put Gilbert all alone in the starter’s role. While Chapman could be back in action this week, Sheehan doesn’t mind Gilbert going solo on the mound. “We had 1 and 1A going

there, so it’s no problem at all,” he said. “I’m very pleased with how her approach is. My biggest fear in the preseason was a lot of balls, but she’s had great control. She’s very focused on getting ahead and pitching ahead. “She has a mechanism where she tries to touch her shoulder blades together behind her back to keep her structure all the way through the pitch and it works for her.” Gilbert said that was her mom’s idea. “She says I have terrible posture, that I’m always slumping,” Gilbert said. “I just roll my shoulders back and try to stand up straight. I get more length that way.” In fact, Gilbert’s arms are long enough for Spade to nickname her Levers. She’s worked those long arms enough to find herself among the Girls Greater Catholic League leaders in earned-run average (1.36) and strikeouts (33) through six games, five as a starter. “Early in the preseason I was wild because I was experimenting with pitch calls,” Gilbert said. “We were trying different pitches in different situ-

ations when there was no pressure just to see if there was something that could work. “Once the season started, it was time to bear down more and just go with what we knew was going to work. I just love pitching. I don’t know what I love about it. I don’t know how to put it in words, but I just love it.” Gilbert - an Anderson Township resident who lived in South Dakota until fifth grade when her family moved to Cincinnati - also plays basketball for the Bulldogs. She said she enjoys both sports equally. In the classroom she’s taking honors chemistry and will take AP Chemistry next year in preparation for studying something in the medical field in college. Her favorite softball memory came last season when she pitched a 6-2 victory over heavily-favored Loveland in what then-coach Chrissy Martini deemed a throw-the-freshman-to-the-wolves start. “I always believed in myself, but I never knew before that she believed in me,” Gilbert said. “That meant the world to me. That gave me the confidence to keep pitching.”

WALNUT HILLS — The saying, “I know what it’s like to be in your shoes,” often is a throwaway line that never makes it through stubborn ears. At a Walnut Hills high school or middle school track meet, however, the Eagles know they should stand at attention when addressed. Amanda Robinson, who starred at Mount Healthy and the University of Cincinnati, coaches the girls while the boys run for Bill Valenzano, also an accomplished runner. Former decathlete Christo Lassiter coaches the throwers on all teams. Recently, the Walnut Hills girls team gave the coach a measure of satisfaction by winning the Mount Healthy Owl Classic at her alma mater. “It was actually my first time being at that meet as a coach,” Robinson said. “It was exciting to see the facilities and see how the school has grown.” Robinson’s runners, leapers and throwers aren’t as deep as last season when they could score two girls in each event. However, they’ve successfully found a way to spread out talent. One of those is junior Taylor Darks, the top Eastern Cincinnati Conference runner in the 400 meters who also runs the 200 and relays. Additionally, she’s an accomplished basketball player. “She’s going to do both and she’ll announce her commitment in May for basketball, but it’s a school where she’ll also do track,” Robinson said. Junior Arissa Freeman is the sprint leader in the 100, 200 and a key component of several relays. “She has such a drive to want to do better than she is,” Robinson said. “There’s never a race where she’s completely satisfied.” Walnut Hills also features junior Hannah Schroeder leading the ECC in the 800 and near the top in the 1,600. Senior Grace O’Donnell is among the 1,600

and 3,200 leaders. Western Kentucky commit Chelsea Carpenter is the league’s best at the shot put and discus, with junior teammate Keira Hassel waiting in the wings. “Keira Hassel is having great improvement in throws and senior Grace O’Donnell is a huge contributor,” Robinson said. “She just ran a PR in the two-mile.” The Lady Eagles also boast the ECC’s best 300 meter hurdler in Niamani Mayes, who adds the 100 hurdles and long jump. Sophomore Rachel Berndsen is a threat in the high jump and pole vault. Lassiter has coached Chelsea Carpenter since the eighth grade and tutors many area athletes in the shot and discus. His senior son, Ellery, is a state qualifier who leads the ECC in both throwing events. At around 160 pounds, he often outdistances the big and burly. “Anything that is propelled is all about speed,” Lassiter said. “The question is, can you get more parts of your body working to generate speed? Football players are often all arm. Just about anyone out there throwing can outbench Ellery.” Ellery Lassiter, who also plays in a steel drum band, is heading to Penn to hurl objects skyward in the Ivy League. “He wants to go to the Wharton Business School, so that’s kind of what drives it,” Lassiter said.

Summit names Cosgrove basketball coach The Summit Country Day School recently named Patrick Cosgrove the new head varsity boys basketball coach. A 2001 graduate of SCD, Cosgrove has been on the school’s basketball coaching staff since 2004, serving as assistant varsity boys basketball coach for eight seasons, one season as a junior varsity coach and one season as a freshman coach. His tenure includes

the 2012 state championship season. As defensive coordinator for the team, CosCosgrove grove’s detailed scouting reports before every game has prepared the Silver Knights with strategies to combat their opposition’s strengths and take

advantage of their weaknesses. Cosgrove replaces Michael Bradley, who played five seasons in the NBA. Bradley runs Michael Bradley Foundation and, with his wife, owns Modo Yoga in Crescent Springs, Ky., Columbia Parkway and Clifton. Bradley announced his resignation recently at a meeting with players and their parents, saying he needs more time to

pursue professional opportunities. Athletic Director Greg Dennis praised Bradley for helping raise the level of play at SCD. “In his four years here, Michael has never lost a home game,” Dennis said. Cosgrove also gave Bradley credit. “I’m following a guy who had the greatest four-year run in the history of the school,” he said. “He was 93-13 in four

years. He did a lot to raise the bar.” An intervention teacher at Winton Woods Intermediate School, Cosgrove has a bachelor’s degree in sports management from Xavier University and is pursuing his master’s degree in middle school science and language arts. During the off-season, he has spent part of his summers coaching at the prestigious Five Star

Basketball Camp. “Pat is an alum and has been a big part of everything that has happened in the basketball program for the past 10 years, including the state championship run,” Dennis said. “I can’t think of a better person to turn the program over than Pat. He has a great relationship with the student athletes, especially the younger student athletes.”

Women’s sports association names top athletes The Greater Cincinnati Northern Kentucky Women’s Sports Association has named its top girls and women’s athletes of the year for area high schools and colleges, to be recognized at the group’s annual awards banquet Monday, April 28, at the Cintas Center.

Award winners at the

college level are: Mackenzie Fields, track and field, University of Cincinnati; Alexandra Smith, volleyball, Xavier University; Sydney Moss, basketball, Thomas More College; Emily Gruesser, field hockey, Miami University; Jacqueline Keire, swimming, University of Cincinnati and Katherine

Spring-break bonding trip boosts Moeller baseball By Scott Springer

Moeller’s Jordan Ramey (4) bunts the ball for the Crusaders.

sspringer@communitypress.com

KENWOOD — Though their trip through the Atlantic Coast Conference netted just one day of baseball, Moeller High School came back home from their spring fling to the Carolinas with a positive bonding experience and a lifetime of bus stories. “We ended up getting in two of three playing a doubleheader,” coach Tim Held said. “We got three outs on Monday before it rained and seven outs in on Tuesday before it rained. We got to visit three of the big universities down there in N.C. State, Duke and North Carolina.” On April16, the Crusaders defeated Orange and Garner high schools in North Carolina, 4-0 and 6-3. Along the way, there were sightseeing tours of stadiums where the North Carolina State Wolfpack, Duke University Blue Devils and University of North Carolina Tar Heels play. Held’s squad routinely features several collegiate players, including some who gather Division I offers before ever stepping on to a varsity field. “It really opened the eyes of those that might be able to play at that level,” Held said. “Unfortunately, it was a dead period for recruiting so they weren’t able to talk to any coaches. ...A couple of Moeller alums that played down there took us around.”

JOSEPH FUQUA II/THE COMMUNITY PRESS

As the Crusaders eye the remainder of their Greater Catholic League and non-conference menu, many names are different from last year’s state title team. Zach Logue, Gus Ragland and Nick Voss logged key innings last season and Riley Mahan is in his third year starting in the infield. The rest of the Moeller gang are looking to make their own names and pitcher Joe Vransesic is off to big start. The junior was leading the GCL in hitting at presstime while topping the strikeout leaders on the bump. “He’s done a great job on the mound,” Held said. “With some injuries we had, we had to throw him into the batting order and he’s produced from day one. Now he’s batting cleanup.” A back injury has limited junior Grant Macciochi’s activity, but he’s expected back and junior infielder Kyle Dockus has stepped up. At second, Kent State commit Josh Hollander is turning heads.

“He’s hitting the ball really well,” Held said. “He’s going to end up being a two-year starter for us.” Jordan Ramey is another Moeller junior in the lineup who is heading to the University of Cincinnati. Depending on the day, he bats either first or second or eighth or ninth (second lead-off). The team is also full of seniors, like third baseman Cole Proia, who have bided their time and are looking for their own niche. Then there’s the junior varsity team that could defeat many varsity squads. “They want to prove they can add to that Moeller tradition and play for a state championship,” Held said. “We had (Zach) Logue and Ragland back on the mound and Riley (Mahan) in the infield. The rest of the seniors didn’t get a ton of time in 2013 and they want to prove they can win. The JVs know they need to be ready because we’ll have a challenging schedule next year.”

CH@TROOM Last week’s question How could the federal government have better handled the standoff with Nevada rancher Clivan Bundy?

“How could they have handled it better? By not exhibiting the forces and let a couple of negotiators handle the situation.”

O.H.R.

“Leave him alone!”

R.W.J.

“There are usually at least three sides to every issue and each side usually ‘knows’ theirs is the correct side. Regardless of which side was correct, the government response to the Bundy situation felt like a gross overreaction and I am certain was a huge unnecessary expense that we the taxpayers, yet again, get to pay. “Perhaps the government could have benefited from a technique I learned as a parent of young children: ‘Use your words.’”

M.J.F.

“I don't know how to settle this one. The federal government has every right to arrest and subdue any law-breakers. Bundy is hiding behind the flag, pretending he's a pio-

neer, or some sort of rugged individualist fighting Uncle Sam. “Too many conservative, anti-federal gun-toters seem to forget that no one is above the law when it comes to use of federal land. However, nobody wants to see more violence like what happened at Ruby Ridge or the BranchDavidian Compound. “The fact that those incidents occurred is part of what stopped the BLM and other federal authorities from using force against Bundy and all the gun nuts out there in their ignorant support of this criminal. “Conservatives seem to love any excuse to pick up their guns, wear their camo,

and pretend something is a "Second Amendment" battle when it is really about something much simpler, especially pretending it's against a Democratic president they don't accept because he's black. The federal government is mindful of not adding fuel to the fire or allowing any domestic idiot to become a martyr to some imagined crusade against the United States.

TRog

“They don't have enough security forces at the border but they can waste their time and (our) money to harass people grazing their cattle on desert land? What do you think?”

J.K.

“They should have let the state handle it. This administration is getting too heavy handed in a lot of other ways too. “The federal government should not own so much of this country. We need to return a lot of it back to the people and that could no doubt lower our taxes. Have a federal land auction and pay it on the national debt.”

Nobody asked me... but

I usually don’t keep secrets unless I’m asked to. These are secrets that I think should be heard by everyone because keeping them from you is driving me crazy, 1: We have a hockey team in Cincinnati. Its not the NHL, but its a good league, has future major league stars and you can’t beat the price for a family night out. The secret is it gets no press or TV coverage. When was the last time you saw an article or film of their games? 2: Joey Votto is not the same player he was before he hurt his leg. He no longer hits those line drives to right field. He has become a left-field hitter. When did you last see him hit one of those towering home runs to right field? He did something to that leg that prevents him from driving the ball to that part of the field. Still, any Votto is a good Votto. 3: There is virtually no help in filling in the potholes from winter. One has to be a foot deep to get a crew together, and, that’s because someone gotten hurt. 4: If you want to know how a small family business can survive and prosper take yourself to The Deer Park Deli. Customers are treated like a family member. The people who own it and the ones they employ are hard working, dedicated and honest. It’s refreshing to see the same customers back daily. Clean surroundings, fair prices and good food. Can’t beat that, and you get a “Hello.” 5: I went to Mayor’s Court in Deer Park to answer a summons. The judge wasn’t exactly like Judge Hardy in those Mickey Rooney movies, but, he was low key, nonthreatening and he cleared a entire docket without incident. No one is there because of a murder, but it nice to see what must be the same style in small-town America. Nice job,Your Honor. 6: Here’s the biggest reason why I continue to live in Deer Park. Blue collar? Sure. Older residents? Oh yes! But, you get merchants like Roger at Deer Park Auto who can fix anything and not charge you that arm and a leg. You get a IGA that is run

the old-fashioned way with great people employed, and within one block, I have a dry cleaner, Bill several Damsey choices of COMMUNITY PRESS pizza, and GUEST COLUMNIST oriental food, a bank, a drug store, a library, stuff I need from hardware and auto supplies, and not a chain store in the mix. It also doesn’t hurt to have fire and police protection minutes away. Its like living in a small town and a huge mall is a minute from my door. 7: A huge secret for me is that I am finally beginning to feel my age. I’ve beaten five major medical conditions and Dr.’s Oz and Phil, Judge Judy and Ellen are daytime companions I now like a lot. 8: I blew a lot of money and I still enjoy blowing it. I’m happy my friends from days long past are living in the lap of luxury and their almost daily emails and phone calls are all about the past. My three closest friends are ones I haven’t seen in over 20 years. Still, we don’t have to say, “Who’ calling?” We begin every conversation about things we did and people we knew. That’s a secret I know most would like to share. 9: Its no secret that I have disliked Marvin Lewis since he got here. He’s a very nice man and gives so much of himself to this city. But, Mr.Lewis, I don’t know how you have held onto your job. It’s no secret I didn’t like Dusty either. Its no secret that I believe I will not live long enough to see us win a Suuper Bowl. And, I’m healthy! 10: My last secret is I’ll be taking some time off to visit grandkids and won’t be on here for awhile. I guess you people must like what I have to say, or, the “press” wouldn’t still be letting me ramble. I get a huge kick when one of you notice me and say “Hi”. I always wanted to be a star. See you soon. Bill Damsey is Deer Park resident.

A sold-out crowd attends the 2014 Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber Annual Dinner at the Grand Ballroom of the Duke Energy Convention Center.THANKS TO LANCE BARRY

GREAT LIVING CINCINNATIANS NAMED BY CHAMBER A

capacity crowd of 1,200 recently joined the Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber in naming four Great Living Cincinnatians. The honorees were Otto M. Budig, Jr. of Indian Hill, Alvin H. Crawford, MD, FACS, Frances G. Pepper of Wyoming and George A. Schaefer, Jr. of Columbia Tusculum. The sold-out event was part of the Chamber’s Annual Dinner at the Duke Energy Convention Center. The award has been presented annually by the chamber since 1967.

ganizations like Youth Collaborative, Junior League, and Cincinnati Country Day. One of the largest beneficiaries of her commitment would be the YWCA. Asked to lead their capital campaign in 1995, she led them to raise a staggering $7.5M. With the money raised, the group renovated an old mansion and transformed it into a battered women’s shelter, eliminated the waiting list in the process.

George A. Schaefer Jr.

Otto M. Budig Jr.

Budig,., leader of one of Cincinnati’s largest privatelyowned businesses, is able to use his business savvy to give back to our community, as one of the region’s primary benefactors. For decades he has invested heavily in that view with both his time and treasure, so much that his name and philanthropy have now become synonymous with Cincinnati’s thriving arts scene. That advocacy has been illustrated further by his service on numerous boards, including the Cincinnati Ballet, Cincinnati Arts Association, University of Cincinnati Foundation, Cincinnati Museum Center, Ensemble Theatre, Cincinnati Zoo, Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, and Cincinnati Recreation Commission. But it was in 1994 that Budig’s biggest impact to date was made to the city he loves. He founded the Otto M. Budig Family Foundation, which is named for his father. To date, more than $25M have been donated by the foundation to organizations including Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, Cincinnati Ballet and Cincinnati Shakespeare Company just to name a few. He also is deeply involved with his alma mater, the University of Cincinnati. In 2009, he returned to UC to receive their highest award, an Honorary Doctor of Humane Letters. He first arrived on campus in the

1950’s after graduating from high school in his birthplace of Newport. A 1956 accounting graduate at UC, he then went on to serve our country as an Air Force Pilot for the next seven years, ultimately returning to Cincinnati at the end of his service. An entrepreneur at heart, he serves as President as Budco Group, Incorporated, a privately held business specializing in transportation, equipment and real estate.

Dr. Alvin Crawford

Crawford is one of the country’s leading spine specialists who has gone on to spread his extensive knowledge across the globe for more than 30 years. Growing up in Memphis, Crawford graduated from Tennessee State in 1960 with degrees in Chemistry and Biochemistry. He then furthered his education at the University of Tennessee’s College of Medicine, breaking barriers while doing so. There, he became the college’s first African-American graduate.

Upon obtaining his degree, he went on to residency in Boston, and had several fellowships. Then in 1977, his medical career began in earnest when he joined the staff at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital as the Director of Orthopedic Surgery, remaining Chief there for an impressive 29 years. Eventually specializing in treating scoliosis, Dr. Crawford became one of the foremost authorities on video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery, pioneering a procedure which uses rods to straighten the spine. Knowing that countless patients’ lives could be improved because of the knowledge he has gained, he authored a teaching module still widely used across the U.S. and 33 additional countries. He currently serves as CoDirector of the Crawford Spine Center at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital. He also is Professor Emeritus in Pediatrics and Orthopedic Surgery at the University of Cincinnati’s College of Medicine and serves on the Board of several different Cincinnati organizations. He is also

a retired Captain of the US Navy Medical Corps. Married to Alva Jean for 50 years, he is a father to two, and grandfather to three.

Frances G. Pepper

Pepper, a well-respected advocate and volunteer, is best known for leading an impressive fundraising effort for a cause close to her heart. Pepper grew up in Mount Auburn in the 1950’s. It was there that she says she first recognized people in need, an observation that would guide her life for decades to come. As a child, she was in awe of the accomplishments of her mother. Upon graduating from Cincinnati’s Hillsdale School in 1958, it was then on to Smith College in Massachusetts. Eventually marrying husband John, a 2006 Great Living Cincinnatian, they found themselves following his career with Procter & Gamble and living in cities across the globe. Upon returning to Cincinnati, she dedicated herself to our city, volunteered with or-

Schaefer. guided Fifth Third to its current position of banking power over the course of three decades, and to this day, continues to lead in his hometown. His story begins in1946, born into a blue-collar family made up of five brothers and sisters. It was on the gridiron at Elder that his life would change: his coach encouraged him to apply to the United States Military Academy at West Point. He graduated from the academy in 1967 with a degree in nuclear engineering. From there, he served two years in Germany with a demolition team specializing in nuclear weapons. He then would serve our country for two years in Vietnam, earning a Bronze Star in the process. In 1971, with his military commitment behind him, he became a management trainee at Fifth Third for $8,500 a year. Over the next several years, he rose through the ranks of Fifth Third, becoming a Senior VP of commercial loans, then eventually being promoted to Executive Vice President. Then in 1989, he was appointed Fifth Third’s President and COO . A year later he would become CEO. Through a combination of cost-controls and acquisition, his vision would lead Fifth Third’s assets to hit more than $91B. He retired from the bank as President in 2006, stepped down as CEO in 2007 and left his role as Chairman in 2008—leaving the bank 13th in the U.S. in asset size.

Eats for Cinco de Mayo, Derby Day There has sure been a lot of activity this week on our old country road. Between Percy the duck out for her usual morning stroll, neighbor Mike’s three rowdy roosters crowing and following me during my daily walk/run, and the addition of our new flock of baby chicks, there’s never a dull moment. Rita To add Heikenfeld to the exRITA’S KITCHEN citement, Mark, one of the Caudill kids, brought me a “gift” of a tiny snapping turtle he found in his yard. It has now taken up residence in a window box complete with water and a flat rock for him to lounge on. I was not happy, however, to discover a baby garden snake slithering out of the manure pile when I was tossing manure into the wheelbarrow for the berry patch. I was actually glad to abandon that task to retreat to the kitchen to test recipes. We have two major celebrations coming up: Cinco de Mayo and Derby Day. You can celebrate both with these recipes.

Brown Hotel hot brown sandwich

The Louisville hot brown was first served at the Brown Hotel in Louisville in the 1930s. It is a famous sandwich espe-

cially around Derby Day, and we love it. I don’t make it often simply because it’s so rich, but it sure is good. I like the hotel’s current version of the recipe, which I’m sharing today. The hotel uses Texas toast since it adds a bit of sweetness to the sandwich and is easily cut into triangles, and the chef uses Pecorino instead of Parmesan. As for the pepper, I like Cayenne. I’ve made only slight variations in their recipe.

Sauce

2 tablespoons unsalted butter 2 tablespoons flour 1-1/2 cups whole milk 1 cup white Cheddar cheese, shredded 1/4 cup Pecorino Romano cheese 1-1/2 to 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard Several dashes Tabasco sauce Salt and pepper to taste (either black or cayenne pepper)

Sandwich

4 slices thick bacon, cooked and crumbled 6 slices Texas toast or Ciabatta bread, thickly sliced and toasted 1/2 pound good quality roasted turkey breast, sliced fairly thick 1 large tomato, sliced fairly thick Melt butter over medium heat and add flour and cook, whisking constantly, for 3 minutes. Add milk and stir, bring to a boil and cook for 1 minute. Remove from heat and whisk in cheeses,

mustard, Tabasco, salt and pepper. Keep warm. Preheat broiler and in ovenproof dish, lay bread slices on bottom, and layer with turkey and tomato. Sprinkle with pepper and spoon cheese sauce on top. Place under broiler until brown and bubbly and then top with bacon. Makes 6 sandwiches.

Tex Mex lasagna

Corn tortillas give this a Cinco de Mayo flavor. I like to serve this with bowls of sliced avocado, sour cream and extra Mexican cheese. 1 pound ground round or ground sirloin 14.5 oz. can petite diced tomatoes with juice, either regular or with chilies 4 oz. can diced green chilies, drained, your choice of mild or spicy 2 teaspoons chili powder 2 teaspoons ground cumin 1 generous teaspoon minced garlic Salt and pepper to taste 2 large egg whites 2 cups small curd cottage cheese 4 (6-inch) corn tortillas cut into quarters Approx. 2 cups frozen corn, thawed completely 2 cups Mexican blend cheese plus extra for garnish Preheat oven 350. Cook meat in skillet until done. Add tomatoes, chilies, chili powder, cumin, garlic, salt and pepper. Stir until blended and set

aside. Blend egg whites with cottage cheese and set aside. Spray a 9x13 pan. Cover bottom with 6 quartered tortillas. Layer corn, half of the meat mixture, half of the Mexican cheese, 5 quartered

tortillas and all of the cottage cheese mixture. Spread rest of meat mixture on top along with rest of tortillas, and top with rest of cheese. Bake, uncovered, 3040 minutes. Rita Nader Heikenfeld is an

Do homework before buying, flipping a home

Home mortgage rates near record lows are prompting some people to consider buying foreclosed homes to either fix them up and flip them or to live in after buying at a bargain price. But, before you buy you need to do your homework to make sure you’re not getting a lot more than you expect-

Howard Ain HEY HOWARD!

ed. A Cincinnati area man writes me that his mother bought a house at a sheriff’s auction and got a

good price for the home. She realized she would have to spend some money fixing it up and did so by putting on a new roof and gutting and remodeling the interior. But, he says, several months after buying the home and moving in she received a notice from the health department saying

I f s k i n c a n c e r i s t h e l a s t t h i n g yo u w a n t to t h i n k a b o u t t h i s s u m m e r, h e re’s t h e f i r s t t h i n g yo u s h o u l d d o. 1 in 5 Americans, or over 3,500,000 cases, will develop some form of skin cancer, making it the most common cancer in the U.S. Yet if found and treated early, it’s 95% curable. So if you haven’t had a skin cancer screening, or if it’s been awhile, now is the time to get one. FREE. Just call any of the participating dermatologists listed below during Skin Cancer-Melanoma Detection and Prevention week (May 5-10, 2014) for your free screening. It’s quick. It’s painless. And it just might save your life.

the septic system needed to be replaced. He writes, “Upon calling them to find out what they meant, she found out that it meant “replaced,” and that notice was given in 2010 of the need to replace.” They were told the septic system could not be repaired. He said it had to be replaced by someone approved by the health department and the total cost would be from $15,000 to $20,000, “on top of all the application fees and permits.” He writes, “After exhausting all other possibilities, I asked what if she could just sell the property and not disclose the problem, which is how she purchased it. He pretty much told me that the sheriff’s auction does not have to abide by the same disclosure laws as ordi-

nary sellers.” Unfortunately, a lot of people don’t realize buying a home at a sheriff’s auction comes with such risks. Normal laws requiring sellers to disclose such orders do not apply to sheriff’s sales. Now, he says, “What she thought was going to be her dream home has become a nightmare.” Christy Wilson of Fairfield found herself in a similar, although not nearly as costly, predicament when she bought a house that had been foreclosed upon. Soon after moving in she received a bill for water and sewer charges from the prior owner. Then she checked with the county real estate department and found an unpaid delinquency as well. So how can you protect yourself? Attorney Mi-

chael Ganson says it’s important to always hire a lawyer when buying a foreclosed property. Not only will the attorney check to make sure there are no assessments on the home, but they’ll do a complete title search to assure the foreclosure was valid. Ganson says especially these days he’s seeing a lot of cases in which there was improper service on all those who have an interest in the property being foreclosed upon. So, even if you buy the home at a sheriff’s auction, the sale may later be ruled invalid. Howard Ain's column appears biweekly in the Community Press newspapers.

St. Ursula girls familiar faces at St. Margaret Hall

St. Ursula Academy students who are involved in Student Outreach Services visit St. Margaret Hall.

The girls from St. Ursula Academy are very familiar faces to the residents at St. Margaret Hall. As members of Student Outreach Services, they visit with the residents and provide oneon-one activities such as games and crafts. The goal of SOS is to motivate and coordinate students to perform community service in the Greater Cincinnati area. These student leaders decide on various agencies where they would like to volunteer and recruit other students to join them at a particular

nonprofit. The program is open to students in grades 10, 11 and 12 who are willing to commit one to two Saturdays per month. In January, the group came to St. Margaret Hall and made a Valentine wall décor with the residents. One student shared that by working on these projects, “we create lasting bonds with the residents which ultimately is the reason we continue to come back” When asked why they like coming to the facility, one replied “I look forward to coming because

the staff is friendly and I enjoy conversing with the residents.” Another responded “going to St. Margaret Hall is always enjoyable because when I visit with the residents, I always leave with a smile on my face and learn something

new from every person I talk to.” The girls’ enthusiasm is reciprocated. One of the residents says that she really likes talking with the St. Ursula girls because they are so sweet and they bring her joy.
