Plans are wilting

Plans to bring a farmers market to Mount Lookout this summer are on hold. The Mount Lookout Community Council wanted to host a farmers market but two locations – Chase bank on Delta Avenue and Ault Park – did not work out. “It’s so disappointing because we are so excited about it,” said Cha Soutar, community council marketing director. “We’re still looking at other options.” FULL STORY, A2

If all goes according to plan during the Ridge and Highland intersection project Columbia Township could save several thousand dollars. Columbia Township set aside $60,000 for the project, which consists of adding turn lanes on both roads and widening each of the four corners of the intersection. FULL STORY, A3

Mariemont may increase trash fee By Lisa Wakeland

Mariemont residents may pay 64 percent more to have trash removed. The village is facing a $350,000 deficit in the general and paramedic funds and the Finance Committee recently outlined recommendations to significantly reduce the deficit. From an increase in trash fees to joining an insurance pool, the Finance Committee has projected a $360,000 savings. The largest amount of savings – about $110,000 – is projected to come from the trash fee increase. The Finance Committee has proposed increasing the annual household trash fee from $55 to $90, increasing the trash sticker fee from $1 to $2 and increasing the annual rental trash fee from $35 to $60. Finance Committee Chairman Andy Black said they examined every budget item and looked at areas that had maximum financial benefit and minimal service



impact. “We’re setting some posts for the village to navigate through what is going to be a tough economic time,” said committee member and Councilwoman Kim Sullivan. “We’re doing the best we can to keep service levels high, but make smart cuts where we can.” Black said some savings such as the employee insurance pool, freeze on end-of-year employee bonuses and the landscaping contract only impact this year’s budget, but the deficit reduction road map has laid the foundation for a smarter budgeting process in the future. “We’ve made a pretty material


reduction in expenses and we’ve done it in a good, collaborative way,” said Councilman and committee member Jeff Andrews. Andrews said he would like to continue receiv-

ing input from department heads for savings and efficiency opportunities during the yearly budgeting process, but also look at further economic development and revenue generation for the village. Each of the deficit reduction recommendations will be evaluated in other village committees and voted on by council before implementation.

Recommendations The Mariemont Finance Committee recently recommended ideas to reduce the village’s $350,000 deficit in the general and paramedic funds. Staffing reductions made last year are included in the plan. • Increase trash sticker fee from $1 to $2; increase annual household trash fee from $55 to $90; increase annual rental trash fee from $35 to $60. Projected savings is $110,000. • Create a combined police and fire chief position. Projected savings is $96,000. • Reduced staffing levels in maintenance and fire departments.

Projected savings of $75,000. • Accept the Center for Local Governments insurance plan. Projected savings is $25,000. • Revise landscaping contract. Projected savings of $22,000. • Suspend village employees endof-year bonus for 2010. Projected savings is $17,000. • Eliminate village-provided weekly brush removal. Projected savings of $5,000. • Increase ambulance transport fee. Projected revenue increase is $5,000. • Relocating the tax office. Projected savings is $5,000.

Intersection construction could come under budget By Rob Dowdy


Traffic concerns at the intersection of Ridge and Highland roads have caused Columbia Township and Hamilton County to join forces in a construction project that will add turn lanes at the intersection.

If all goes according to plan during the Ridge and Highland intersection project Columbia Township could save several thousand dollars. Columbia Township set aside $60,000 for the project, which consists of adding turn lanes on both roads and widening each of the four corners of the intersection. However, based on the price of the bids returned, Columbia Township Administrator Michael Lemon said the township could get back between $5,000 and $6,000 if the project

doesn’t face unanticipated changes when it begins the second week of May. “We’re committed to no more than $60,000,” he said. The total project is estimated to cost $3.6 million, with 90 percent of the cost covered by a state grant. The remaining 10 percent is basically split between the township and Hamilton County, with Cincinnati covering the cost of resurfacing a small portion of Highland. Eric Beck, construction engineer for the Hamilton County Engineer’s Office, said the Ridge and Highland intersection has long been a problem,

but the county was reluctant to take on the costly project without a grant. “It’s been on our radar for a number of years,” he said. Beck said the project, which should be completed by the end of October, won’t solve all the problems at the intersection, but should allow for more traffic flow, particularly in the turn lanes. Lemon said regardless of whether or not the township saves a few thousand dollars on the project, township officials are just pleased that work will soon begin. “We’re very excited about it. We’ve been looking forward to this for a decade,” he said.

incur additional costs. “After discussing this for several years and for two hours at the last meeting, we made a thoughtful decision,” said Draugelis. Alberts Court resident Craig Rozen said he could see both sides of the issue.

“While I may not agree with all of the proposed changes, I understand the need and the desire to make changes,” he said. “I am more concerned about providing safe crosswalks for my children and others at several of the intersections.”

Residents continued to offer opposition to making Allston Street a one-way road during last night’s Oakley Community Council meeting. What began as a discussion on traffic signals led to further frustrations by residents, many of whom live in the Oakley Park subdivision. During a previous council meeting, traffic engineers with the city suggested alternate routes residents on or near Allston could take. However, Bryan Williams, a supervising engineer for the city, said the addition of traffic signals along some of these routes to help alleviate potential problems was unlikely. He said the traffic volume and the number of accidents at the intersections, which include Millsbrae and Markbreit avenues and Eileen Drive and Markbreit Avenue, was not enough to get city approval for the signals. Residents, though, were more angered by the Allston change itself. “There are over 300 signatures on a petition (opposing the change),” said 34th Street resident Mary Ellen Gallo. “That should speak to you.” The Oakley Community Council, though, stood by its previous vote in favor of making Allston a one-way street. Council President Peter Draugelis said safety was a primary factor in the Streetscape plan in which Allston was converted to a one-way street. He said changing the plan at this point would

Voters OK Mariemont school issue

By Lisa Wakeland

Voters approved the Mariemont City School District’s combined 5.28-mill bond and 5.15-mill operating levy May 4. The issue passed 61 percent to 39 percent, according to unofficial results from the Hamilton County Board of Elections. The bond issue will finance the $39.8 million facilities master plan, which reduces the number of buildings from five to four with a combination of new construction and renovation, and will save approximately $1 million in operating costs each year. It will cost the owners of home with a market value of $100,000 about $268 more per year in property taxes. Superintendent Paul Imhoff said the community has always been supportive of the school district and this was a rare opportunity to take advantage of historically low interest and construction rates, as well as federal stimulus money that is available. “It’s really a one-time opportunity and our community understood that,” Imhoff said. “They spoke loud and clear that they were going to support their schools ... and continue to build on that long tradition of excellence.” Columbia Township resident Cheryl Mantle, who has two children in the Mariemont City School District, said she voted for the issue to support the academically excellent district. “The schools are one of the reasons we moved to this commu-

taxes to go up,” he said. “It’s the wrong time and the wrong choice.” Indian Hill resident Mark Temming, who owns apartment buildings in Mariemont and was chairman of an opposition group, said high voter turnout helped the

bond and levy issue pass. “They ran a great campaign (and) they really got the vote out,” he said. “But the strength of the number of votes we got speaks to our message.” The Mariemont City School District spent nearly two years developing a facilities master plan, and Imhoff said it will continue the in-depth community engagement. “We will continue that process of community input as we design the buildings that are going to serve our children for the next 50 to 75 years,” he said. Temming said he still feels there are issues with the logic and financing of the facilities master plan but he plans to be part of the next phase. “We will continue the activities to push for greater overall responsibility and fiscal efficiency in the district,” he said.

Voter turnout

The Mariemont City School District had one the highest percentages of voter turnout in the May 4 election, according to the unofficial results from the Hamilton County Board of Elections. Nearly 48 percent of voters in the school district’s eight precincts cast a ballot, compared with less than 19 percent countywide.


Unofficial vote totals from the Hamilton County Board of Elections, eight of eight precincts reporting: • 1,869 votes, or 60.88 percent, for the combined bond and operating levy issue. • 1,201 votes, or 39.12 percent, against the combined bond and operating levy issue.

Students have thirst to provide water By Forrest Sellers

Students at Summit Country Day School did more than walk for a cause. They actually made an effort to experience the plight of those who they were trying to help. The school had a “Hands Across the Water Walkathon” to raise money to provide safe, clean drinking water for children in developing nations. The middle school students raised an estimated $5,000 for Children’s Safe Drinking Water, a nonprofit Procter and Gamble organization. The money they raised will got toward water treatment packets that will provide 500,000 liters of clean water. The 270 students divided into teams that each carried a container with 23 pounds

The school is still accepting donations which will go to the nonprofit organization Children’s Safe Drinking Water. To donate, call 871-4700, ext. 254. of water. Each team walked a total of five miles. By carrying the water containers the students were given some idea of what it is like for the children in developing nations who have to make lengthy treks to water sources, many of which are unclean and unsafe. The idea for the walk came from seventh-grader Michael Van Dorselaer of

Newtown. Van Dorselaer, who is also president of the middle school service club, was inspired after hearing a guest at his home speak about the plight of children who don’t have access to clean water. “We all take clean drinking water for granted,” he said. “We were able to help kids in other countries who don’t have that privilege.” The students bonded in realizing they can make a difference, said seventhgrader Abbey Taylor of Amelia. Van Dorselaer’s mother, Traci, who helped coordinate the event, said the Walkathon was more than just a fundraiser. It was an educational experience for the students, she said. “You saw their passion,” said Traci.

Clark Montessori baseball has bright future By Mark Chalifoux

The Clark Montessori baseball team is young but has been improving steadily this season. Head coach Rick Blyberg said the team has good pitching and a solid defense but that the offense can go through occasional slumps. “We’re getting better. We start three freshmen and three sophomores on the varsity team so it’s a learning process for some of the younger guys, but we should be good in the future,” he said. The biggest challenge with the younger players is getting them to understand what they need to do to play at that level. He said playing against teams like Summit Country Day and Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy helps show them what it takes at that level. “When you’re playing six games a week, you can’t take a play off, let alone a game off,” Blyberg said. The younger kids at least have a good role model to look up to in senior Will Simpson. Simpson is the Cougars standout on the baseball diamond and he recently collected the 100th hit of his high school career. “We’re going to hate to see him go. Hopefully the way he carries himself will translate to the younger kids,” he said. “He’s my No. 1 pitcher, a good shortstop, and he has-

Clark sophomore Ryan Casey pitches against St. Bernard. The Cougars defeated St. Bernard 8-2 at home on May 5. n’t struck out all year.” Simpson also had a 14game hitting streak and has been hitting .477 this season. “The kids really look up to him and he’s always helping them out,” Blyberg

said. “He plays hard every day and he’s a top student as well. He’s the whole package.” Simpson is going to play baseball at Muskingum College next year. The team has also had

strong play from junior Wesley Howell pitching and hitting in the No. 2 spot. Daniel Brantley and Michael Gaines are two sophomores that have been playing well. “They are getting better every day. They are big,

strong kids,” Blyberg said. Freshmen Mecca Bosley (catcher), Sam Johnson (first base) and Brian Fricker (OF) have also been key contributors. The Cougars are 8-11 through May 7 and have had some big wins this season, including a 7-6, 11inning win over New Miami at home and a sweep of Cincinnati Country Day. The team recently picked up a pair of wins over St. Bernard, outscoring them 24-6 over the two games. “We’re competing with some good teams and we play so many young guys so we’re optimistic for next season,” Blyberg said. “We know what we have and the kids will understand what it takes to play at this level. And we have a really good junior high team as well.”

Moeller baseball rolls through GCL By Mark Chalifoux

Moeller High School started the baseball season with a team that, on paper, is even more talented than the 2009 state champion Crusaders. And the 2010 Crusaders have lived up to their promise, running the table in the Greater Catholic League and cruising to a 22-1 record through May 5. “I never thought we’d have only one loss at this point – not with the schedule we play,” head coach Tim Held said. “You just never think you can go through the GCL undefeated because it’s such a tough league.” Moeller secured the perfect conference record in a 4-3 win over Elder May 3. They won in the bottom of the seventh on a walk-off double by Max Belza (Loveland). “In the last 10 days, he


Moeller pitcher Robby Sunderman throws a pitch during Moeller’s 7-0 win over Highlands April 17. has hits in something like 10 of his last 12 at bats. He’s hitting the ball like crazy,” Held said. “We’re also getting great starting pitching and our depth has been even better than expected.” Moeller has had a number of different players step up recently, including junior Jake Madsen (Blue Ash). Madsen is hitting .515 and senior Alex Barlow, coming off a successful basketball

season, is hitting a teambest .537 and leads the team in RBI with 28. “He’s made a tremendous impact in playing shortstop when Robby Sunderman pitches and playing third when he’s not, and he’s made some unbelievable defensive plays and has been incredible at the plate,” Held said of Barlow. Catcher Corey Smith (Mariemont) is another player Held praised, saying

he’s been “tremendous behind the plate” and has kept the opposition’s running game in check. On the mound, Sunderman (Sharonville) is producing at a high level, just like he was last year. He has a team-best 6-0 with a 1.30 ERA. David Whitehead (50, 0.50 ERA) has been picking up the innings that Brett Cisper handled last year and junior Eric Stiene (Loveland) has also thrown a lot of innings. Junior Kevin Brennan and Andrew Stiene (Loveland) out of the bullpen have helped close the door on opponents at the end of games. “The team plays with confidence. They know they have great players at every position and good pitching and they think they will win every game they are in,” Held said. “With what we did last year, expectations are just as high this year but once you get into the tournament, it’s just trying to

survive one game at a time.” Held said the team likes its draw for the tournament and that the Crusaders don’t spend much time worrying about rankings (one publication has the Crusaders ranked No. 7 in the country). “We just try to have fun with that. A lot of it comes from the success from past players to give us that name recognition and we’re just happy to have a good season and keep the Moeller name out there,” Held said. He did say he’d like to see the defense tighten up a bit before the tournament starts. “We can get a little lax and throw the ball around and that lets the other team think they can play with us, and I don’t like that,” he said. “If we can tighten up our defense, we’ll be a real tough team to beat.”

Senate bill The law may not protect against sports violence would About letters and columns allow oil, gas drilling Thomas on state Gelwicks Community Press guest property columnist In just a few short months, legislators will begin discussions on the next two-year state budget. The downturn in the national economy has had a major impact on Ohio, and given our limited resources, we need to look at every possibility for raising revenues for the state – especially those that do not Sen. increase taxes Ohio busiShannon on nesses and famiJones lies. Consistent Community that goal, Press guest with during our delibcolumnist erations on House Bill 1 last spring, State Sen. Keith Faber offered an amendment that would have permitted drilling for oil and natural gas on state property as a way to raise additional funds for Ohio’s state parks and help reduce our dependency on foreign oil. While it was not included in the final version of House Bill 1, Faber recently introduced the proposal as Senate Bill 241. S.B. 241, which I co-sponsored, would grant the director of the Ohio Department of Natural Resources the authority to enter into leases for the drilling of oil and natural gas on all lands owned by the state and administered by a state agency. The director would be charged with establishing rules and standards for the terms and conditions of leases and which locations would be eligible for drilling. In addition, the bill contains provisions to ensure any drilling does not interfere with the primary use of the land or its scenic, aesthetic and environmental quality. Drilling technologies have advanced significantly in recent years, making it safer and also minimizing the impact of drilling on park visitors as well as area wildlife. S.B. 241 also prohibits drilling under Lake Erie, unless such leases are permitted under federal law. It is estimated that drilling on state property could raise up to $10 million each year. S.B. 241 stipulates that all money generated from these leases can be used only for capital projects in the state park system. By taking these funds and reinvesting them in our state parks, we can not only ease the burden on Ohio taxpayers, but enhance the overall experience of all those who come to visit these beautiful areas. S.B. 241 has been assigned to the Senate Environment and Natural Resources Committee, and I am hopeful that action will be taken on this bill before the end of the year so that we can have this option available to us as we begin the difficult process of balancing the upcoming state budget.

At this time he was “bodychecked” from behind by Ashland defender William Kynast, who then stood over the downed player while taunting him. An Ohio State teammate, Brian Hanson, grabbed Kynast from behind in a bear hug. Kynast instantly flipped Hanson over his back, causing him to fall headfirst, resulting in quadriplegia. Brain Hanson’s lawyers brought a lawsuit against Ashland University. They argued the coaches’ failure to properly supervise the players, which led to this tragedy. The Supreme Court of Ohio reversed a lower appeals court ruling. They held Hanson assumed the risk of injury when he grabbed Kynast, in protection of his teammate. The highest legal authority in our state ruled that body-contact sports such as lacrosse are inherently combative, and those who

participate assume the risk of rough play. The justices went on to remark that it is difficult to distinguish when a player crosses that thin, perhaps invisible, line which separates assault from permissible sport aggressiveness. As catastrophic as Hanson’s injury was, the court believed Kynast’s intention was not to injure and that his actions were “reflexive and instinctive.” Student athletes strive to make the team and, beyond that, win play time and perhaps school glory. Overpowering others is the essence of what they work to accomplish on the field. At the same time, each is charged with following the rules as well as those vague ideals we characterize as “sportsmanship.” We expect a lot of youths by assuming that, in the heat of battle, they will make split-second

decisions in properly conducting themselves. They are expected to demonstrate behaviors that will place them in that narrow, uncertain zone between “stick up for yourself” and “conduct yourself with decency.” Evaluating intent and determining a proper response are jobs we usually entrust to authority figures. It’s often complex, despite Justice Holmes’ jocular observation that even a dog knows the difference between being kicked and being stumbled over. Congress may debate for weeks the wisdom of a military response. Judges have the luxury of time

and settled law in considering situations such as Kynast’s belligerence. Adults engaged in the daily competition to earn a living must tread an ever-moving line in navigating the written and unwritten rules of their workplace. We are expected to be very ambitious – but not too ambitious. A youth playing sports must expect varying degrees of violence. It is up to them to abruptly determine whether to respond and, if so, precisely how. It may be an unreasonable burden, but it is the way of sports and the way of the law.

sad that the Duke (then CG&E Intended Nuclear) power plant at Moscow, Ohio was changed over to coal when it was built. Increased hydroelectric plants and desalination plants are also needed while more alternate fuel efficient cars are developed. America has the knowledge and hopefully will start developing more of these alternatives. As usual, Honda and Toyota have taken the lead so far on cars. Go figure!” T.D.T.

CH@TROOM Last week’s question

Is wind power a viable solution to our dependence on oil? Why or why not? “That is a very difficult for the average person to answer, because it would require a lot of very specialized knowledge and statistics. However, having made that disclaimer, I would say that I have noticed a number of wind farms in operation, and one huge windmill is even visible from I275 heading northeast near the Milford exit. Someone thinks they are practical, or they wouldn’t be using them. I suspect that if we built and employed a large number of them, it would make a difference in our oil consumption. But I also suspect that there are people who would be upset with the appearance of these devices, and would object. As for me, I say ‘Why not?’” Bill B. “Absolutely! We should immediately set up a battery of windmills just outside of each of our statehouses and Congress. The volume of hot air generated should make us energy independent in no time.” T.H. “I think wind power is something to be considered as a way to reduce slightly our dependence on oil. However, in most locations wind is not suitable as the ONLY source of power – it simply fills in the gaps left by other power sources. In countries that use wind power it ties into the electric power system and has been heavily subsidized by the government.” K.S. “No! Let’s see: People like the Kennedy’s say wind power is great, they just don’t want the ugly turbines anywhere near their ‘compounds’; loud; does more than minor damage to migrating birds; storage of the produced energy is still a big issue; wind not that ‘abundant’ everywhere and how do I pump that wind power into my SUV?”

Lisa D. “Wind power is just one source to decrease the energy dollars from going out of the country. It might supply, eventually, a single digit percentage of the total. “All is important, but the quickest and surest way of reducing energy costs (to both dollars and environment) is conservation. California has grown tremendously since the mid-70s but energy use never grew. This was almost entirely due to conservation. There is a partnership between the state and the utilities. This should be the focus nationally.” J.Z. “This is a very broad question regarding oil usage versus electrical power. More in likely not. This nation consumes more oil and oil products than anyone else. If you start building wind generated-turbines to produce electricity it would take an awfully lot of wind turbines, electric storage facilities, and wiring costs would be prohibitive.” O.H.R. “Wind power is only a small part of reducing our dependence on oil. It is limited to certain geographic areas and it only generates electricity which can provide little help for powering trucks, trains, buses, airplanes and ships.” R.V. “Yes, wind is a viable solution to our dependence on oil, but not by itself. “Wind along with solar, the harnessing of coastline waves and tides, biofuels, new non-polluting clean coal technology (the U.S.A. is the Saudi Arabia of coal) and a new generation of nuclear power would create a mix of cleaner, sustainable and home gown energy completely eliminating our dependence on oil.” R.O.S. “The use of wind power is a no brainer. The oil will run out or become price prohibitive. Nuclear power plants are now being built after a 30-year moratorium. How

Next question

“Wind is definitely part of a viable solution to reduce our dependence on oil over the longterm. In the Great Plains, America is the Saudi Arabia of wind power! Studies indicate that building out our wind capacity in the Great Plains could generate as much as 20 percent of our needed electricity. “As a country we have spent many dollars and sacrificed many lives in order to maintain oil as a steady and reliable source of energy to provide power for our people and economy. “Additionally, we have seen recently an example the toll that oil drilling can take on our environment and other industries. Let’s take the steps now to build a thoughtful, stronger and safer energy future.” D.M. “Wind Power? Are you for real? Wind power and solar power can only supply a small amount of our energy use when compared to our use of fossil fuel, i.e. coal, oil and natural gas. What the oil, gas and electric companies do not want our country to learn about is geothermal exchange! This readily available source of heating and cooling reduces our dependence on other sources of energy, including wind mills and solar panels! Unfortunately our government has yet to see the light. The capital costs for installing geothermal exchange are still expensive when compared to costs for conventional heating and cooling. These capital costs may decrease with more competition. The attraction of geothermal exchange lies in operating costs! My HVAC “guy”

Now can you see why the energy companies don’t want to see geothermal exchange get a foothold? Our nation presently needs to design a plan for allowing its citizens to install, where possible, geothermal heating and cooling systems for their homes. There is presently a token tax break for geothermal but nothing that would entice the average homeowner to purchase such a system. Present installation costs typically are about $15-20 K but new homes could be less due to excavation, etc. If you have ever gone underground into a cave, the air temperature in the cave is typically 5055 degrees year round? Above ground the air temperature might be 90 degrees in the summer or 10 degrees in the winter? Well, in the summer, it takes more energy to cool a building with the above ground air than it takes with the air from the cave! In the winter? It takes more energy to heat the building with 10 degree air than it takes with 50degree! That’s why conventional heat pumps work OK down south most of the time but not here in the northern US. So we use a geothermal exchange system to get the warmer air from the ground in the winter and move the hotter air into the ground during summer. How hard is that to understand Washington? I encourage everyone to read more from on the Internet at http:// Americans are always searching for “new and innovative” solutions to our energy problems rather than revisiting “old stuff!” In the immortal words of Earl Pitts: “Wake up America!” L.S.M.

Some interesting observations about marriage, divorce cut and run when the going gets tough. Realists decide to abstain from the excesses of romance and settle for practical, ‘mature’ (slightly gray) relationships. 2. “If one has not in fact of these responsgrown in the course of a Father Lou Each es retards growth into marriage, it has been a Guntzelman the fullness of love… It dreadful disaster.

reproduce our miseries with extraordinary consistency. In love relations, we approach each new relationship as an antidote to the problems of the last one, and, with daunting regularity, each new relationship turns out to be a new version of the old.” So claims psychoanalyst Stephen Mitchell in “Can Love Last?” 6. In Belinda Luscombe’s “Time” magazine column (May 3, 2010) she discusses serial marriers. She facetiously wonders why people who are so bad at mating for life, e.g. Larry King, Elizabeth Taylor, Zsa Zsa Gabor, Mickey Rooney, etc., keep pairing up. “It’s not that they want to get divorced, or hate marriage. It’s that they like it too much, even though it’s not good for them. So, perhaps applications for, say, a fifth marriage license should be required to get therapy.” 7. “By having two lovers one

can drastically reduce one’s commitment to a relationship that one would not be able to bear in its totality. When one feels the need to deceive the beloved, this implies a lack of integration of the shadow.” Aldo Carotenuto “Eros And Pathos.” 8. Are wedding vows taken seriously, or should they be reworded: Though celebrities claim to fall in and out of love within months or a few years, and others follow their example, it’s legitimate to ask if such people actually loved each other in the first place. Viktor Frankl, M.D., writes, “The moment we experience true love, we experience it as valid forever, like a truth which we recognize as an ‘eternal truth.’ It is impossible to envision loving ‘for awhile.’” (A good argument for commitment.) 9. British philosopher Susan Mendess exposed the absurdity of

an intended short-term period of love in marriage by saying, “It is bizarre to respond to ‘Wilt thou love her, comfort her, and keep her?” with: “Well, I’ll try!” 10. “I think one of the problems in marriage is that people don’t realize what it is. They think it’s a long romantic love affair and it isn’t. Marriage has nothing to do with being happy. It has to do with being transformed, and when the transformation is realized it is a magnificent experience. But you have to submit. You have to yield. You have to give. You can’t just dictate.” Author and world mythologist Joseph Campbell in “This Business of the Gods,” page 78. Father Lou Guntzelman is a Catholic priest of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati.

Whether buying or selling – beware of fakes How genuine is the jewelry sold on eBay and other online auction sites? A few years ago, Tiffany & Co. found nearly three quarters of items sold on eBay as “Tiffany Jewelry” were counterfeit. Tiffany sued eBay but lost because the court said eBay is not the seller. Now Tiffany goes after the sellers themselves. That’s what Anita Holmes has learned. She said she bought earrings from a friend whose husband had bought them for

came in, the box that said “Tiffany” and the bag that also said “Tiffany.” She posted the picture on eBay, offered it for sale, and immediately received an email saying they don’t look like real Tiffany items. Holmes said she immediately closed the auction – but it was too late. She received e-mails from both eBay and the lawyers for Tiffany & Co. Then she got a letter from Tiffany’s attorneys showing they meant business. “They wanted me to

her. “I liked the earrings but they were selling on eBay for around $120 and Howard Ain I could Hey Howard! have used the money more than I could the earrings,” she said. “So, I decided maybe the earrings could go to somebody else.” Holmes took a picture of the earrings, the pouch they

send them the earrings. They wanted the name of the person that had sold them to me, and they wanted $475 for damages,” she said. After calling the lawyer’s office, Holmes said, “They say it’s phony. I asked her how she knew. I’m not trying to be smart about it, I just wondered because I didn’t know. She said they know their merchandise.” Tiffany & Co. said such counterfeiting dilutes the value of its products so it’s trying to stop it as soon as it

spots these fakes. Holmes says she’s learned a big lesson. “I won’t sell on eBay anymore; it’s just not worth the worrying about this happening again. It scared me,” she said. Just to be sure, I asked Holmes to take the earrings to the Tiffany store in downtown Cincinnati. She did, and said she learned the handles on her “Tiffany” bag are different from the real thing. There’s a different size box inside, and the pouch is also differ-

ent, among other things. Holmes said she was told they were all good fakes. Holmes said she’s now sent the items to Tiffany & Co.’s lawyer along with a check for $475 for the trademark violation. Bottom line, beware of counterfeits – whether buying or selling on the Internet. Howard Ain answers consumer complaints weekdays on WKRC-TV Local 12.

Healthy way to prepare fish, ‘chips’

I got a bonus of sorts when I stopped at Keegan’s Seafood on Salem Avenue in Mount Washington for my fresh seafood “fix.” Outside the store was the cutest little couple selling produce, herbs and veggie plants. Mr. and Mrs. Klug come f r o m Fayettville and grow the prod u c e t h e m Rita selves. I Heikenfeld bought Rita’s kitchen some heirloom yellow tomato plants, a rhubarb plant, and some beautiful purple basil. They are there a couple times a week, so if you’re in the neighborhood, stop by to see Tom Keegan and these truck farmers. All throughout our Community Press and Recorder areas there are these kinds of folks who are independents trying to make a living doing something they love. You’ll find them outside places like Tom’s, at roadside stands, Findlay Market, or in the parking lots at

shopping malls. Anytime you can support our independent grocers and farmers, I hope you do so.

Parmesan mixed together 2 teaspoons garlic powder or to taste Olive oil, salt and pepper

Seafood tips from Tom Keegan

“Oil the fish, not the pan,” he says. Tom brushes oil on the fish for a healthier, tastier dish. He also says simple is better. “When you have a quality piece of seafood, you don’t need to do much other than sauté it simply in some olive oil and/or butter with your favorite seasonings.”

Pan-seared salmon with herbs


Simple pan-seared salmon with dill and lemon herbs. of salmon which has been seasoned with salt and pepper. Cook until done, turning once. Sprinkle with fresh dill and a squeeze of lemon juice.

Oven-fried french fries

Usually I oil the fish, not the pan, but in this case, I put the olive oil directly in the pan since I have aromatics with it. Here’s how I do it: Film a pan with olive oil and cook a large, peeled, smashed clove of garlic in it until it turns golden. If you have a few sprigs of lemon grass, toss them in too and saute along with the salmon. Remove garlic and lemon grass and add a piece

For Mandy Roberts, who wanted healthier french fries with lots of flavor. You need to precook the potatoes first so they’ll bake up crisp without a long time in the oven. If you want, add less garlic powder and substitute Cajun seasoning. 4 big baking potatoes, cut into big wedges, skin left on if desired 1 ⁄4 cup each: bread crumbs and shredded

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Bring water to a boil, put potatoes in, then lower to a simmer. Cook until barely tender, about five to seven minutes. Spray a baking sheet and put potatoes on in single layer. Season and toss with a bit of olive oil. Sprinkle bread crumb mixture over them, tossing to coat. Press the coating lightly so it sticks. Bake, and toss about halfway through, until crispy, about 10 to 12 minutes or so.

Stuffed bell pepper soup

I’ve had several requests for this and finally tweaked the recipe so that it’s good enough to share. Like eating a stuffed pepper, inside out! 1 pound ground beef (I use sirloin but any will do) 1 cup chopped onion 2 bell peppers, medium size, diced 1 nice rib celery, chopped 1 nice carrot, chopped

2-3 teaspoons garlic, minced or more to taste 1-2 teaspoons dried oregano or more to taste Chili powder to taste – start with a couple teaspoons Soy sauce to taste – start with a couple tablespoons Beef broth – start with 5 cups and add more to taste 14.5 ounces diced tomatoes 1 jar, 26-ounce or so, favorite pasta sauce 1 ⁄2 cup brown or white rice – I like brown Shredded cheddar for garnish Film pan with olive oil and brown beef along with onion, peppers, celery, carrot, garlic and oregano. When beef is cooked, add everything but rice and cheddar. Bring to a gentle boil and cook about 10 minutes. Lower to a simmer, add rice, put lid on and cook until rice is done, about 15 to 20 minutes or so. Adjust seasonings and add salt and pepper to taste.

“Is it OK to plant basil now?” Yes, the soil has warmed up enough and we shouldn’t be getting any more frosty nights. It’s a good time to divide perennial herbs like thyme and oregano that have gotten woody or out of bounds.

Business helps girls go to prom in style


For five years, Appearance Plus Cleaners has gathered, cleaned and transported prom dresses for Kenzie’s Closet.




counselors and social workers, they are met by a personal shopping assistant who helps them choose and try on dresses until they find the gown of their dreams. Then they select the shoes, jewelry, wrap and purse to complete the outfit. Volunteer seamstresses are on hand to make on-thespot alterations if needed. The outfits are theirs to keep, and each girl goes home with a single pink rose. “These girls go home with more than a dress and shoes,” said Coletti. “They leave with their heads held high, with that sense of confidence that comes from knowing they’ll look amazing on that special day.” “Our partnership with Kenzie’s Closet is just one of the ways we can give back and help our community,” Heitzman said. “This is part of our company culture – that all employees are involved and making a difference in our world.” Kenzie’s Closet was named after Makena Anne Comisar, who was tragically killed in a single-car accident in 2002 before she had the chance to attend her senior prom. Kenzie was a student at St. Ursula and was known for her big heart and generosity.








This spring marks the fifth year in which underresourced high school girls from across Greater Cincinnati have gathered in an O’Bryonville boutique to be completely outfitted, free of charge, for their school proms. From the day that Kenzie’s Closet first opened its doors in 2006, Hyde Park dry cleaner Appearance Plus has served as a drop-off location for gently used prom dresses, and has cleaned thousands of donated dresses, making hundreds of prom dreams come true each spring.

They will meet Joseph and learn of his incredible faith journey from prison to palace. They will experience new traditions, taste new foods, try new arts and crafts and discover that by trusting in God, they are never alone in life’s trials and triumphs. Both programs will be held at the cathedral. The cost of each is $30. Scholarships are available. Registration forms are available at For additional information on the choir camp, call 621-1817.
