MOUNT LOOKOUT - Less than six months after a large fire destroyed a building, the Mount Lookout Swim Club is ready for its 53rd season. A Dec. 21 fire ripped through the bathhouse and the roof of a connected picnic area. There was some minor damage to speakers but the concession area and pump room were not affected by the fire. Thought it took months to repair the building, bathroom and shower facilities, the work is complete and the pool was schedueld to reopen this past weekend.

Mt. Lookout Swim Club reopens By Lisa Wakeland

Hot dads contest


A fire ravaged the bathhouse at the Mt. Lookout Swim Club on Dec. 21. An insurance investigator listed the cause as arson.

“We’re going to open on time,” Pool manager Cary Belyea said. “No one thought it could be done.” Most of the structure was saved after the fire but there are some changes, said Chris McDowell, president of the swim club’s board of directors. They added glass block windows, stone counters in the bathrooms and a higher, vaulted ceiling above the picnic area, McDowell said. The bathhouse destroyed by the fire was built in the early 2000s and the reconstruction allowed the club to use more energy-efficient materials. It now has a tankless water heater, automatic flush toilets and LED lights, said Kurt Zobrist, of Zobrist Design Group Inc., the company that helped rebuild the structure. McDowell said they’ve been keeping the swim club members informed of the progress. Many were concerned the building wouldn’t be finished on time and it would ruin part of the swim season, he said. The Cincinnati Fire Department

Lookout Swim Club on Totten Avenue. listed the fire’s cause as undetermined but a fire investigator from the swim club’s insurance company said the cause was arson, McDowell said. “It was a senseless act of vandalism,” he said. The incident occurred around 2 a.m. and a pair of suspicious vehicles were reportedly seen in the area around the time the fire

started. Fire investigators initially suspected arson, but later backed off that assessment. McDowell said previously that both the electricity and gas were shut off after the 2010 swim season ended. The Mount Lookout Swim Club is on Totten Avenue. For more about your community, visit

Couple makes splash with kayak class By Forrest Sellers

HYDE PARK - The 17-foot kayak in their garage may be a clue. Hyde Park couple Lynn and Pat Frock have a passion for paddling area rivers and lakes and they want to spread that passion to others as well. Both are involved with the Miami Group of the Sierra Club. Pat is chairwoman of the club’s Canoe and Kayak School, while Lynn is an instructor at the school. “We teach them a skill and how to be safe,” said Pat, 69, who has been involved with the Sierra Club for more than 30 years. A variety of classes are offered for different skill levels. Locations for the classes vary. Lynn, 70, provides instruction in using a sea kayak also referred to as a touring boat. “If you want an outdoor experience, a lake or river is a good way to get there,” said Lynn, adding that a significant number of rivers and lakes can be found in

Before going out, participants are instructed on safety tips, paddling techniques and how to properly wear a life jacket. “Most of (the participants) are beaming that they have learned to control their craft by the end of the class,” said Lynn.

Oakley may have resident recognitions By Forrest Sellers

OAKLEY - The neighborhood may soon have its own “Best of …” competition. Oakley resident Brandon Reynolds, who helped spearhead the recent Great American Cleanup in Oakley, said the formation of an Oakley Awards Committee is under discussion. “The idea was to come up with a fun activity to recognize people’s talents within the community,” said Reynolds. “It’s a way for neighbors to be engaged and promote the good things going on in Oakley right now.”

The committee is still in the brains t o r m i n g phase, according to R e y n o l d s . Brandon Reynolds, Whether the Oakley resident committee will be affiliated with the Oakley Community Council has yet to be determined, he said. Council will likely discuss the topic at its upcoming meeting Tuesday, June 7, at the Oakley Recreation Center, 3882 Paxton Ave. The committee would recognize people in a variety of categories ranging from best yard to

“It’s a way for neighbors to be engaged and promote the good things going on in Oakley right now.”

best holiday decorations, according to Reynolds. He said an Oakley Person of the Year could also be a possibility. Paul Rudolph, who is also involved with the committee, said it’s about bringing residents together. “It’s an effort to unite the community and build a closer community,” he said. Recognition of winners could potentially strike up conversations among residents, he said. Reynolds said specific details have yet to be worked out, but he said an award in some category could potentially be done each month. He said a suggestion was to have people submit photos or nominations online and then have the committee or members of the community vote for their favorite submission.

Terrace Park begins to tackle budget By Lisa Wakeland

TERRACE PARK – Officials here have started reviewing the 2012 budget and are trying to cut back wherever possible. Faced with rising costs

are expected to make at least one more revision to the figures. Most of that is the Porst general fund - used for salaries, operations and similar expenses with roughly $245,000 earmarked for certain items, such as street repairs. Porst said the village is bracing for planned cuts to the local government fund, elimination of the estate tax and increased health care premiums. “(The budget projection) shows us a steady decline heading out to 2014,” he said. “We’re going from around $1 million in 2010 to a couple hundred thousand in 2014. There is lots of work to do to effect that but it is what it is.”

Health insurance premiums are expected to go up nearly 15 percent, the cost of fuel has increased dramatically in the past few months and workers compensation costs are expected to rise by 10 percent each year, officials noted. Fire Chief Luke Frey said it’s costing more to maintain and replace fire hydrants and Clerk Laurie Baird said the trash collection contract will increase this year. Police Chief and Street Commissioner Gerald Hayhow noted the law was very explicit about what the restricted street funds could be used for and said he would check to see if they could move some of the salary for the maintenance workers out of the general fund and into the restricted fund. Village officials noted that EMS billing could be another revenue source as the general fund begins to dwindle and agreed to revisit the issue. EMS services cost Terrace Park roughly $22,000 per year. “We could be confronted with the choice of making cuts or asking the community if they want to pay more money,” Porst said. Terrace Park’s 2012 budget is due to the Hamilton County Auditor by July 20. Council is expected to vote on the final budget at the July 12 meeting.

Mariemont to consider more parking restrictions By Lisa Wakeland

Ted Brown wrote a letter to council asking the village to look at parking near the intersection of Pleasant Street and Mariemont Avenue, on the southern side of Wooster Pike.

MARIEMONT – Officials will evaluate parking restrictions on two more village streets in response to a resident's concern. Ted Brown wrote a letter to council asking the village to look at parking near the intersection of Pleasant Street and Mariemont Avenue, on the southern side of Wooster Pike. "On the northeast corner of that intersection, vehicles routinely park on the east side of Pleasant, all the way to the intersection with Mariemont Avenue," Brown wrote. "As you know, this is a very busy intersection. Vehicles parked all the way to the intersection make it difficult to turn onto Pleasant and leave little room for oncoming traffic to pass."

Brown suggested the first 25 feet of the curb, on the east side of Pleasant Street beginning at Mariemont Avenue, should be painted yellow or a "no parking here to the corner" sign should be installed since some vehicles disregard yellow curbs. The Ohio Revised Code prohibits parking within 25 feet of an intersection. Brown wrote that traffic and parking signage should be uniform and consistent

Councilwoman Denise McCarthy asked to add the intersection of Chestnut and Oak streets to the parking review. "Making a left hand turn is very difficult because of the way people park along the intersection," she said. "If there is a car coming and there is a car parked over there, it's impossible to turn." Councilman Dennis Wolter said at Monday's meeting that he will look into the issues as chairman of the Safety Committee. Village officials recently

painted the curbs yellow on the northwest side of East Center Street to allow the fire trucks to turn onto the street. Having cars parked on that side, or on both sides of the street, limits the fire department’s ability to drive down East Center Street, Assistant Fire Chief Jeff Travers said at a March meeting. Painting the curbs prompted some residents to speak out against the changes. For more about your community, visit

HYDE PARK – Eating healthy may not be the first thing that comes to mind when eating a pizza. A new Hyde Park business hopes to change that.

This is the first Naked Pizza to open in Ohio. “We believe there is an obesity epidemic in Ohio,� said Girton-Gorenca about the rationale behind the business. Ingredients are all natural, and the meat used on the pizzas is hormone free. Girton-Gorenca said the crust is made from 10 whole grains. “We get to do a different take on pizza,� she said. She said some of the favorites are the “superbiotic� and “Mediterranean� pizzas. Girton-Gorenca said Hyde Park was considered a good location because of the active lifestyle promoted by many of its residents. “We know people in Hyde Park and Oakley are conscious of nutrition,� she said.

National award winner

Kilgour Elementary sixth grader Prescott Huston is one of 10 national winners in a writing contest sponsored by Scholastic, Inc., through StoryWorks magazine. His winning entry was a letter to Claudette Colvin, a little-known figure in the Civil Rights Movement whose courageous stand against segregation inspired Huston. Colvin was only 15 years old in March 1955 when she refused to give up her seat on a bus in Montgomery, Ala. – nine months before Rosa Parks took a similar stand. In 1956, Colvin was a plaintiff in Browder v. Gayle, the landmark case that found Montgomery’s segregated bus system to be unconstitutional and led to the end of the Montgomery bus boycott.

Mariemont girls’ lax advances to state

By Nick Dudukovich

Mariemont boys lax team continues to roll

It turns out the fourth time is the charm for the girls of the Mariemont High School lacrosse program. The Lady Warriors advanced to the Division II state semifinals after defeating Indian Hill, 10-5 at Kusel Field, May 26. The 2011 season marked the fourth time that Mariemont advanced to the regional finals - a point the team hasn’t been able to get past - until now, according to head coach Kevin Ferry. Ferry said a good combination of senior experience mixed with an enthusiastic crop of younger players has helped make Mariemont one of the top-ranked teams in the state. Heading into the regional title game, the Warriors were ranked No. 9 in Ohio by Polls were not something the team paid attention to in the past, but considering a team’s ranking impacted its tournament seed this season, the girls started to take notice. “We were more interested in it than in prior years

The Mariemont High School lacrosse team kept its playoff hopes alive with an 11-8 win over Turpin in the second round of the Division II state playoffs, May 25. Mariemont’s Jimmy Beach scored five goals in the game to help push the Warriors past the Spartans. David McCormack also had a big game with nine points (three goals, six assists). Mariemont advanced to play Summit in the quarterfinals at Kusel Stadium, May 28, which was after Eastern Hills Journal holiday deadline.


Mariemont’s Elizabeth McCracken runs with the ball during the Warriors’ regional final win over Indian Hill, May 26. for that reason,” Ferry said. Ferry said his squad has seen success this season because the Warriors are hard for other teams to match up with offensively. “Everyone on the offensive end is a treat,” Ferry said. “And I think it’s our best balanced team in the seven years I’ve been coaching…with the most

offensive power, for sure.” On offense, the Warriors have been led by attackers Madison Saffin, Elizabeth McCracken and senior Leigh Fisher, who broke the Mariemont career point record of 282 during the squad’s win over Miami Valley Career Technology Center, May 19. The trio combined to

score seven of the Lady Warriors’ 10 goals in the win over Indian Hill. At midfield, Ferry said Steph Jones, Kaila Roberts and Mari Mileham have shored up their respective line, while Emily Moreton has been a force on defense. When combining all aspects of the game, Ferry believes the Lady Warriors

are a tough team to beat. “This team is at its best when it’s taking advantage of the very talent we have on the field,” Ferry said. “We have people who complement each other really well. When we are all playing our role, this team really, really clicks.” The Warriors play Hathaway Brown for a spot in Division II state title game at the Hawken School in northeast Ohio, June 3.

Home foreclosure increase brings out scam artists Foreclosure remains a risk for many Hamilton County homeowners, especially in light of ongoing unemployment, increasing consumer prices, and falling home values. Because of the stress and potential embarrassment of dealing with their financial problems, some become vulnerable to mortgage rescue scams that appear to offer solutions, but are actually rip-offs. As part of our outreach services, Housing Opportunities Made Equal provides free one-on-one consultations as well as free educational sessions to community organizations in an effort to counteract this misinformation. Bill Hanks, HOME foreclosure prevention counselor, has seen far too many scam victims. As an example, he cited a recent client who thought he had hired an attorney to help him restructure his loan for a lower monthly payment. Indeed the agency title had “attorney” in its name.

Winning entry

In the wake of all of the severe weather in recent weeks, how do you grade the local meterologists? Are they doing a good job notifying the public of potential danger or is the weather coverage overdone?

Sophomore Kyle Greathouse created the winning entry in Mariemont High School’s fourth annual Black History Month poster contest with his ink/watercolor painting featuring a gallery of influential AfricanAmericans from Harriet Tubman to Bill Cosby. Greathouse’s artwork will be framed and installed in a permanent display in the high school. He also wins a gift certificate to Plaza Art Materials.

I like Michelle Bachman, but I don’t know if the country will elect a woman as president yet. The same goes for Sarah Palin. Mama Grizzly has a hard core following, but I don’t think she has enough numbers. Huckabee is not in the race. I don’t have a lot of confidence in Donald Trump. Mitt Romney is getting a lot of negative coverage for his support for the controversial health care plan in Massachusetts. McCain has showed that he didn’t have the right stuff, as much as I appreciate what he has been through. I think back to Clinton’s election, and Obama’s emergence as the Democrat candidate, and remember that both of them were virtual political unknowns, and I hope that somehow the GOP can find a candidate who is not really well known yet, and that this candidate can do what Clinton and Obama did. We have got to stop this arrogant person from winning a second term. One of the worst things he has done is to alienate one of our strongest allies – Israel – in favor of kowtowing to the Palestinians who have shown such antagonism and hatred for Israel.” Bill B.

Bill will ensure fair, secure elections I am pleased to announce that on Wednesday, May 18, the Ohio House passed comprehensive election reform, House Bill 194, a bill I jointly sponsored with Representative Lou Blessing of the 29th House District. HB 194 cuts down on the potential for voter fraud, increases voter access, ensures elections accountability, accuracy, and requires statewide uniformity. We simply cannot afford to have 88 different standards throughout the state for registration, voting, and ballot counting. This bill also recognizes that there still is such a thing as voter responsibility. HB 194 goes a long way to help prevent questions and litigation surrounding the WilliamsHunter juvenile court judgeship race in Hamilton County. Nearly seven months later, the race outcome has not been decided. This uncertainty causes voters to distrust the electoral process. This bill reduces the potential for litigation due to honest mistakes poll workers might make. HB 194 also provides finality by cutting out the 10 day window to validate provisional ballots. The election should end on Election Day. Other important reforms in HB 194 include eliminating “Golden Week,” which is the period where voters register and vote the same

day. This eliminates potential fraud and we must always remember that voter fraud has the same neteffect as voter disenfranchiseRobert ment. Mecklenborg HB 194 also streamlines noCommunity fault absentee Press guest voting by columnist changing the time frame for Ohioans to continue voting absentee 21 days prior to Election Day, rather than 35 days currently. HB 194 reduces many of the problems associated with in-person absentee voting by limiting that period to 10 days before Election Day. This legislation also creates statewide uniformity by eliminating the ability for county board of elections to mail out unsolicited absentee ballot applications. Currently, only six out of 88 counties engage in this unfair absentee ballot application mailings process. This creates an unfair advantage over those counties that cannot afford this process. House Bill 194 modernizes our election process by creating a statewide voter database to help verify the accuracy of our state’s

voter rolls, authorizing the use of electronic poll books, improving the validating process for provisional and absentee ballots, and allowing voters to change their registration address online. It also provides additional tools to clean-up the voter rolls with respect to deceased voters. Secretary of State Jon Husted is a great advocate for many of the provisions of this bill, especially those provisions ensuring the integrity of our voter rolls and registration process. The bill does away with Sunday early voting and voting during the weekend prior to Election Day. There are many other significant changes in HB 194, but there is one in particular interest to Hamilton County. This bill makes it illegal for schools (as just happened with Hughes High School) to bus students to the polls during the school day. HB 194 properly balances access, accountability, and equal protection of all voters throughout our great State. Now that the House has done its job, we need the Ohio Senate to do their job and pass HB 194. State Rep. Robert Mecklenborg represents the 30th House District in western Hamilton County, including Green, Delhi, Miami, Whitewater and Harrison townships. Rep. He can be reached at 614-466-8258.

In the modern world, speed gets us nowhere fast bites bite the hand of the ideas that feed them … The first victim of speed is truth, and Father Lou the news Guntzelman flash canPerspectives not be the truth, the w h o l e truth and nothing but the truth.” Our desires lead us to faster rates of acquisition of unnecessary products, the latest technology, and the quickest diets. We think multi-tasking deserves a trophy and cellphoning while driving a car makes us efficient. Author David Whyte said, “The great tragedy of speed as an answer to the complexities and responsibilities of existence is that very soon we cannot recognize anything or anyone who is not traveling at the same velocity as we are.” Velocity causes a blurred vision and speed-work can cause a type of amnesia. “There is a secret bond between slowness and

memory, between speed and forgetting,” wrote Milan Kundera. Some wondrous elements of a good life are diminished by speed. Relationships are one of them. Personal relationships need to develop over time and with time. Speed crushes them and stifles intimacy. Slaves to speed start losing sight of family members, especially children, or those who are ill or infirm. A friend falls sick and speedsters find it frustrating or distracting. Sickness doesn’t fit into a culture that is on the go. Sadly, not only family suffers but our speed begins to cause us to leave behind parts of our own selves that need tending. We forget that our sanity, interior health and spirituality need much more attention than we are giving them. To construct something enduring in our own lives, speed is never the answer. It hampers our personal development and glues us more firmly to a lesser identity than is our goal. A person of insight realizes that speed can become

a great defense mechanism for hiding behind. We feel it exonerates us from stopping and really looking objectively at our lives. Unconsciously, we may even enjoy it as an excuse for our insensitivities toward others and for being uninvolved with life itself. If we are a speed addict, what can we do about it? The key seems to be to find a restful yet attentive presence in the midst of our work; to find some source of energy other than our constant application of effort and will. To engage our will continually exhausts us and prevents us from creating something in our work that endures. There is such a thing as accomplishing great work with a light touch. We need discipline enough to create times of quiet and solitude for reflection. Poets and mystics often see what most cannot. Poet Robert Frost argued for a counterbalance to speed. He wrote, “Everyone should be free to go very slowly … for what you want, what you’re hanging around in the world waiting

Supporing Artists and the Arts Year-Round

Reprinted from January 2009. Speed-velocity is as hallucinatory as speedamphetamine, according to author Jay Griffiths. In his book “A Sideways Look At Time,” he deals with the cult of speed we have established. We worship speed. That’s partly due to the exhilaration of acceleration. It has more to do with competition, status, beating-out others, and getting where we want to go without too much thought or effort. “Be fast or be last,” is our maxim. Speed in work has its compensations. It gets things done and sometimes earns promotions. It’s the deficits and destructions of speed we forget. Woody Allen said he took a speed-reading course and read “War and Peace” in 20 minutes. “It involves Russia,” he concluded. Skim-talking and skimreading promotes skimthinking. The quick radio bulletins and rolling banners at the bottom of TV screens skim the news-surface without needed analysis. Griffiths said, “Sound

Potato chip cookies bring back pecan memories Teaching classes at Jungle Jim’s is always fun for me. Ron Wilson, gardening expert, and I recently taught “From an urban garden to kitchen” classes. My sous chefs, Ellen Mueller and Janet Hontanosas, prepped everything ahead of time so both classes went well and everyone enjoyed “Yardboy Ron” and his abundant gardening wisdom, along with my garden menu. After class, I was chatting with Leigh Ochs, the director, and she showed me some potato chip cookies that were being featured as a weekly recipe in Jungle’s ad. Boy did those cookies

bring back memories. They were a favorite of my kids growing up, tasting a little bit like Pecan Rita S a n d i e s Heikenfeld but a lot Rita’s kitchen l e s s expensive. I couldn’t wait to get home to bake up some memories. Here’s my adaptation of Leigh’s recipe.

Potato chip cookies

These are good to tote to a potluck or picnic.

1 cup butter, softened 1 ⁄2 cup sugar 2 teaspoons vanilla extract 3 ⁄4 cup crushed potato chips 3 ⁄4 cup toasted pecans, chopped fine 2 cups all purpose flour Additional sugar, for finishing cookies (I use raw sugar) Preheat oven to 350°. Spray or line baking sheets with parchment paper. In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar thoroughly with an electric mixer. Add vanilla and mix well. Stir in potato chips and pecans. Add flour and stir to combine. Shape into 1-inch balls and place 2 inches

Black-eyed pea stew can be made with dried or canned black-eyed peas. apart on prepared baking sheets. Flatten gently with a glass dipped in sugar. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until lightly browned; remove from baking sheets and cool on a rack. Makes about 21⁄2 dozen.

Master recipe for quiche

A “loyal reader” sent this in. If you don’t have Gruyère, use Swiss or your favorite cheese. Quiche makes a nice brunch, lunch or supper dish.

parsley and cook, covered, for two minutes more. Meanwhile, whisk together the eggs and halfand-half. Stir in the Gruyère and the onion mixture. Pour egg mixture into the pie crust; it will be very full. Bake until the filling is set and a knife inserted into the center comes out clean, about 40 minutes. Let rest for five minutes. Cut into wedges and serve. Serves six-eight.

Black-eyed pea stew

1 tablespoon olive oil 2 medium yellow onions, diced Salt and pepper to taste 1 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley, chopped 4 eggs 1 cup half-and-half 8 ounces Gruyère, grated 1 ⁄8 teaspoon ground nutmeg 1 deep dish pie crust

I had this at daughter-inlaw Jessie’s, house. I came over to watch the kids and it was a chilly, rainy day. She warmed me up a bowl of this stew. Here’s my adaptation. The recipe called for dried peas without soaking, but I soaked them to speed up the cooking process

Heat oven to 375 degrees. In a large skillet, over medium-low heat, heat the oil. Add the onions, salt and pepper. Cover and cook until the onions are softened, five to seven minutes. Add the

2 cups dried black-eyed peas, soaked overnight and drained or do a quick soak** (can substitute 2 cans black-eyed peas which are ready to go) Olive oil 1 generous cup chopped

yellow onion 8 ounces kielbasa, regular or turkey halved lengthwise and cut into 1⁄2-inch pieces 4-6 cups chicken or vegetable broth 1 ⁄4 to 1⁄2 teaspoon crushed red pepper Salt and pepper to taste 2 bay leaves 1 tablespoon cider vinegar or more to taste 28 oz. diced tomatoes Kale, spinach or mustard greens Red wine vinegar (opt. but good) Film bottom of pot with olive oil. Add onion to pan; cook until tender. Add sausage; cook until lightly browned. Stir in 4 cups broth; bring to a simmer, scraping pan to loosen browned bits. Stir in peas, salt, peppers, and bay leaves. Cover and simmer 30 minutes for dry, soaked beans or 20 for canned. If necessary, add more broth. Uncover and cook 20 minutes or until liquid begins to thicken and peas are tender. Stir in vinegar, tomatoes, and greens; simmer 10 more minutes or so and serve. Pass the red wine vinegar! **Tip from Rita’s kitchen: to quick soak dry beans, cover with water and bring to a boil. Take off heat and let sit for 1 hour, then drain. Serves six-eight.
