Oakley Council asks board president to apologize By Forrest Sellers

OAKLEY — The Oakley Community Council asked for an apology from the board president during its June 3 meeting. The request stemmed from what some members consider inappropriate behavior by President Craig Rozen regarding a dispute over a vacant board seat on council. Some of the board members contend that Rozen ignored previous meeting minutes indicating that candidate Mark Rogers had been vetted for the position. During the May meeting, Rozen said applications would continue to be accepted for the seat vacated by Tom Frey. Local attorney Evan Nolan was eventually appointed to fill the seat. Additionally, some members contend Rozen made several false accusations toward Vice President Dave Schaff and recording secretary Jeanne Savona. Oakley resident Diane Rupp made a motion “to censure” Rozen, who would not be permitted to speak during the rest of the meeting and whose responsibilities would then be taken over by Schaff. The motion called for Rozen to write a formal apology to both Schaff and Savona. A vote by council was 18 to 2 in favor of censuring Rozen. Rozen issued a public and written apology. However, Rozen eventually left the meeting after some called into question the sincerity of the apology. “(I) feel people have hijacked the process with a personal agenda,” Rozen said. “There has been a lot of bullying, animosity and hatred. “This is a personal attack.” A number of residents including Rupp and Rogers expressed frustration.

The garden of Madisonville resident Gary Dick will be featured in this year's Madisonville Garden Tour June 22. The garden, which is located at Arnsby Place, was the recipient of an award for curbside appeal last year.FORREST SELLERS/THE COMMUNITY PRESS Oakley resident Diane Rupp made a motion during the June Oakley Community Council meeting to censure board President Craig Rozen for false accusations.

“We can sit here all night and play these games,” Rogers said at one point. Board member Jason Wilcoxon said the dispute, which dominated a significant portion of the meeting, was “getting absurd.” “You’re behaving like a bunch of fourth-graders,” he said. “Demanding an apology is out of line.” Schaff, who ended up presiding over the meeting after Rozen left, said council should be focused on other matters. “We need to move though this,” he said, adding that the Oakley council needs to address financial and zoning decisions being made by the Cincinnati City Council. “All of this will be for naught if we don’t work collectively,” he said. Savona, though, said the exchange, which at times was quite heated, was “democracy.” This wasn’t pretty, but it was right, she said. How this matter will ultimately be resolved remains to be seen. The Oakley Community Council is not scheduled to meet again until August.

Tour showcases eye-catching gardens of Madisonville By Forrest Sellers

MADISONVILLE — See what’s in bloom in Madisonville during an upcoming garden tour. The Madisonville Beautification Committee will sponsor a garden tour from noon to 4 p.m. Sunday, June 22, at various homes in Madisonville. A map will be provided for the self-guided tour, which will feature seven area homes as well as the garden at the Lighthouse School. “I like to call them the ‘secret gardens,’” said Gary Dick, one of this year’s participants. “The tour allows people to see the beauty of gardens in Madisonville that they might otherwise miss.” Dick’s garden was the recipient of a “curb appeal” award last year. “I take great pleasure in gardening,” he said. “I like having my hands in the soil.” His garden features more than 40 different varieties of plants. Dick said he especially likes perennials. “They are like old friends who come to visit year after year,” he said.

The garden of Madisonville resident Gary Dick will be featured as part of the annual Madisonville Garden Tour Sunday, June 22. Dick said the tour allows people to see "the beauty" of Madisonville.FORREST SELLERS/THE COMMUNITY PRESS

The tour was started by the Madisonville Garden Club more than a decade ago. It has been coordinated by the Madisonville Beautification Committee during the last few years. “When (people) see these gardens, it opens their eyes to what we have,” said Marcia Perez Richardson, a member of the Beautification Committee who helps organize the tour. Tickets are $10 and will be

available the day of the tour at the pocket park at Madison Road and Whetsel Avenue. Tickets can also be picked up in advance at the French Rendezvous, 6124 Madison Road. Proceeds raised from the tour go toward beautification efforts in the community. Following the tour, refreshments will be served at the Madisonville Arts and Cultural Center, 5021 Whetsel Ave.

Changes coming to Anderson-Downtown bus service By Lisa Wakeland

Bus riders who use the Anderson Township parkand-ride on Beechmont Avenue must alter their commuting plans. Metro plans to eliminate this stop when it switches service for Route 75X. This express route, which connects Anderson Township to downtown Cincinnati, will instead pick up riders at the Anderson Center Station, 7832 Five Mile Road. “Last year Route 24 was modified and we have been working with (Metro) for almost two years on Route 75,” said Steve

Sievers, an assistant township administrator Steve Sievers said. “As of June 2, that park-and-ride will go away, which will provide greater flexibility for that site.” The park-and-ride is on the township’s operations campus, 7954 Beechmont Ave., which also houses several departments, the Senior Center and community recycling. Anderson Township is planning improvements to that site,


which will be completed this year. Anderson Township resident Jennie Kopf, who uses the express route every day, isn’t thrilled with the changes. She lives off Eight Mile Road and uses the bus to get to work downtown. “They’re going to make me drive further to catch the bus,” she said. “I’ve taken the 30X before, but there are too many stops and ...

She also has concerns about whether the Anderson Center Station has enough parking for the additional riders, but township officials have said there is enough to accom-

were crying and yelling. “The area has been relatively quiet for the last year or so. We have had a lot of (community) efforts going on,” Butler said. “This will be, I believe, the first homicide in six months in the area.” Butler said if anyone knows anything about this incident, they should call Crime Stoppers at 513352-3040 or call 911. The victim is the 31st homicide of the year so far in Cincinnati, according to the homicide unit.

Mariemont Council has approved installing more stop signs in the village and new no parking zone. Stop signs will be installed on the northbound and southbound side of Pleasant Street at Fieldhouse Way and on the eastbound and westbound side of Center Street at Mt. Vernon Avenue. Council also agreed to extend the no parking zone on Indianview Avenue, south of Wooster Pike. “No Parking” signs will be installed on the east side of the road, and the yellow “no parking” line on the west side of the street will be extended four feet north. Council passed the stop sign ordinance May 27 and is expected to pass the “no parking” ordinance at the July 14 meeting.

New tenants at Red Bank Village

Three companies have committed to lease office space at Neyer Properties’ Red Bank Village property in Fairfax: Thermal Tech Engineering, Gilman Partners and State Auto.

Seniors a big factor in Mariemont lacrosse state title By Mark D. Motz

MARIEMONT — The trophy disappeared by the time the team gathered for a photo. No matter. Fans assembled at Kusel Stadium to welcome the squad home knew what it looked like because they’d seen one just a year earlier. Instead of posing with the trophy, players and coaches on the 2014 Mariemont High School boys lacrosse team bit their medals and raised their index fingers to celebrate the fact they repeated as Division II state champions. The trophy wasn’t the only thing that disappeared. Warriors owned a 9-3 lead against Chagrin Falls in the state finals until a fourth-quarter rush got Chagrin within a goal at 9-8. But Mariemont held on for a 10-9 victory June 7. The win gave them their second-consecutive state title and the third championship in program history - Mariemont also won in 2007 - eclipsing two-time winners University School and Dublin Jerome as the team with the most Division II state titles. “I’d probably say this was the sweetest because of the seniors,” Warriors head coach Steve Peterson said. “Last year we had five, but this year it was 11 and those 11 guys have meant a lot to the program for a long time.” Senior goalie Sam Long - who with classmate Macko Saffin earned All-America honors this season - said there were some tense moments toward the end of the game as Chagrin Falls made its charge. “We got a little too settled, too comfortable,” he said. “That gets a little bit dangerous when you play like that, but we stuck together.” When Sander Henning scored a short-handed goal with an assist from Cal Fries - to push the lead to 10-8 with 90 seconds to play, the worry subsided. “Every time our offense scores, we go crazy,” Long said. “I can see everything from (the goal) and that was one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever seen. It’s just a great feeling, a feeling you can’t really describe. To have that feeling again is amazing. You understand how special it is. For a team to do it once is great, but to do it twice in a row is unbelievable. It’s been a great run with these guys and with this community.” Fries earned the game ball from his teammates with a three-goal, three-assist performance in the finals. Henning’s game winner was his second goal of the match. Peterson gave credit to Chagrin Falls for mak-

ing a game of it. “They snuck back in at the end and they never gave up,” he said. “They were a fast, aggressive, strong team. But then we got that short-handed goal late to make it 10-8. They got another one in the last few seconds, but our kids held it together. I’m so proud of this team.” The Mariemont varsity wasn’t the only successful team in the program. The JV Warriors won the city championship while the middle school won the Division II state tournament. “This is a historical showing,” Peterson said. “With Sam and Macko as All-Americans, we also had Ryden Lewis as an academic All-America. And that’s

The Mariemont High School lacrosse team posted a 6-4 Division II state semifinal victory over St. Francis DeSales June 5 to set up its title defense. “This is where we wanted to be,” said head coach Steve Peterson. “That was a tough opponent and our kids responded. (Winning back-to-back state titles) has never been done in school history and we wanted to be the ones who did it. I think we’ve got the talent and we’ve got the chance to do it.” Defense was the key as Warriors senior co-captain and goal keeper Sam Long repeatedly stifled the Knights. St. Francis scored a back-door goal at the 2:02 mark in the first period to put the team up 3-1, but didn’t find the net again until 3:48 remained in the game. By that time Mariemont led 6-4 and Peterson said “it was all over but the crying.” “The goal is just to stay relaxed,” Long said. “I thought we did that pretty well. The defense in front of me was great. I was just saying stay close and let them shoot from the outside. Those are the kind of shots I like to see and that’s what they gave me.”

not just Division II, those awards go over both divisions, against the big teams like St. X. “The future is bright. We lose a lot of good kids, but we have a deep program that keeps ‘em coming.”

From a distance, it looks like a stiff breeze might blow her away. Up close, St. Ursula Academy junior Annie Heffernan looks like the breeze itself, blowing through competitors on the track on her way to Columbus. Heffernan - the defending Division I champion in the 3,200 meters with a state record time of10:14.91in 2013 - will add the 1,600 meters to her individual program this season, as well as anchoring the 4x800 relay team. “I’m hoping for another record,” Heffernan said. “I just want to go out and beat my time from last year. I know it’s not a shoe-in, especially running both races about an hour apart, but I like the challenge.” Heffernan came up short in her record bid, running a 10:55.13 to place sixth. However, she won the1,600 title with a 4:56.83 race that put her two seconds ahead of runner-up Lainey Studebaker of Centerville. SUA head coach Dan Bird said Heffernan added five pounds of muscle to her petite frame this season - putting her at about 90 pounds and making her arguably the strongest athlete pound for pound in the city, which enabled her to consider running both the 1,600meter and 3,200-meter races at state. “It’s just a part of her maturing and getting stronger,” he said. “It’s a natural process combined with a lot of work on her part. She’s followed our program. As a freshman she was limited in the number of miles she could run. Of course she did them very well. And we added some more last year and more this year. “But we decided a few weeks ago, how many times do you get a chance to run a double like this at the state meet? I think the last girl to win both was (Mason graduate) Angela Bizzari, so if she pulls it off, she’ll be in pretty good company. “I wouldn’t have any doubt she could win either of them pretty easily if she was doing just one, but putting them back to back like that, she’s going to be pushed. She’ll be fresh, but having that relay the day before, she won’t be totally rested. She just has good instincts for (racing). She’ll do what she

St. Ursula has more than one athlete making a double attempt at the podium in Columbus this year. The aptly named junior Danielle Springer competes in both the long jump and high jump for the Bulldogs in the state meet. It’s Springer’s second trip to state in the high jump. “The two events are so different,” said SUA head coach Dan Bird. “The high jump is technique and finesse; the long jump is some technique, but it’s more raw power. Dani did the high jump in grade school had the technique when she came to St. Ursula. We’ve just refined it. “She started long jumping last year and did pretty well on sheer will and ability.

She has always gotten up for big races.” Heffernan said the hardest part was the short recovery time between races, but she’s learned some of the secrets while winning district and regional titles in both races while leading up to the state meet June 6 and 7. “It’s a just a lot of stretching, warming up and cooling down properly,” she said. “I can’t sit down.” Heffernan began running in kindergarten and won the Division I state cross country title in the fall “I just love it so much, especially the team,” she said of running. “That’s a big part of my training, having the other girls around to push me.” Heffernan said she’s not superstitious, nor does she have any particular rituals before stepping into the starting blocks. “I just think about all of my training and all I did to get ready,” Heffernan said. “I’m very confident in what I’ve down this season to get ready.” So is Bird. “It’s fun coaching somebody like Annie,” he said. “She does whatever you ask and does it very well. She’s a special, special talent.”

St. X falls short in state semifinal By Tom Skeen

St. Xavier junior goalkeeper T.J. Schweitert goes down to make a save in the second quarter of the Bombers’ 8-7 sudden-death overtime win over Moeller May 28 in the Division I regional semifinals at St. Xavier High School. TOM

HILLIARD, Ohio — In search of its first Division I state title in school history, St. Xavier lost to Dublin Jerome 3-2 in the Ohio High School Lacrosse Association Division I state semifinals at Hilliard Bradley. Jerome senior Shawn Ewert scored the eventual game-winner with 3:47 remaining in the third quarter. The Bombers (16-7) hit the post five times, one coming in the final minute of the game, and couldn’t get around the spectacular play of Celtics goalkeeper Chase Rose, who unofficially recorded 10 saves. After hitting the post with 45 seconds left in the game, the Bombers regained possession with 32.1 to play after a Celtic turnover. St. X rushed one last flurry of offense on Rose, who made the final save of the contest with under 10 seconds to play before hurling the ball out of the St. X’s offensive zone and watching the clock hit zero. “The guys played their hearts out,” St. Xavier coach Nate Sprong said after the game. “It’s a tough way to go down, but we went down fighting. I couldn’t be more proud of the guys. St. Xavier lacrosse is a class act. Sometimes it doesn’t go your way.” St. Xavier’s last lacrosse state title came in 2000 as a member of Division II and coached by Mark Howe.

COLUMBUS — If it’s June, it must be Huntington Park for the Moeller High School baseball team. Seeking a thirdstraight Division I championship, coach Tim Held’s Crusaders made the familiar trek to downtown Columbus for the weekend of June 6-7. They faced a team from Massillon Jackson that hadn’t been to the state semifinals in 67 years. The Polar Bears came into the game with a similar record at 24-5 and began to conjure up memories of 1947 by scoring right away off of Moeller ace Zach Logue. Senior Kyle Mottice reached base and was driven in by senior Jake Miller to give Jackson the early 1-0 lead. From there, Jackson’s Sam Miller kept the Crusaders off the plate despite allowing baserunners in the first three innings. In the fourth, Moeller sophomore Kyle Butz singled and stole second and came in on an error by Jackson’s shortstop to knot the game at 1. The Crusaders remain locked on one run as Sam Miller, followed by senior Tim Turner, a couple of 5-foot-9 Polar Bear hurlers, put Moeller in a deep freeze in terms of runs. A sacrifice fly by Turner and run-scoring single from senior designated hitter Seth Vellucci put Jackson up 3-1 in the fifth

The Celtics opened the scoring just 1:52 into the first quarter on a Skyler Blake goal. Jack Caudill of Hyde Park had the answer for the Bombers less than two minutes later, tying the score at one with 8:32 left in the opening quarter.

ics, which is how Sprong drew things up. “We came out in a zone defense to slow down their offense,” the coach said. “Our goalie (T.J. Schwietert of Mason), we had confidence in him and we packed the zone in and he came up huge with some big saves. Everything happened the way we wanted except the shots didn’t fall.” The loss ends St. X’s season at 16-7 and brings to an end the reign of 13 seniors, seven of who have been on varsity since they were sophomores and contributed to the program reaching two regional finals, winning one regional title and reaching the state tournament for the first time since 2009. “I couldn’t be more proud of St. Xavier lacrosse, especially the senior class,” Sprong said. “They battled, been through a lot and would have liked to play on Saturday but that doesn’t change anything.”

inning. In the sixth, ninehole hitter sophomore Jake Pollatta singles to make it 4-1. In the final inning, senior Riley Mahan led off with a triple for Moeller and was knocked in by future Kentucky Wildcat teammate Logue on a groundout, making it 4-2. Jackson held from there as Mike McCann caught the final fly to right to end Moeller’s state title streak at two. Logue gave up seven hits and struck out six in his final five frames of high school pitching. Mahan had two of the Crusaders’ six hits. “These guys had a fantastic season to go 24-5,” Held said. “Riley (Mahan) was here three years in a row and the rest of the seniors two years in a row. To get back up here and the pressure that’s been on them all year, the expectations.” Because of depth, Moeller stands a chance at returning to Columbus next year. Starters Josh Hollander, Bryan Soth, Joe Vranesic, Kyle Dockus and Bailey Montoya are juniors as is defensive replacement/speedster Jordan Ramey. Starting center fielder Kyle Butz is only a sophomore. “We return a pretty healthy core,” Held said. “They’ll head on to summer ball and start working on their game. We’ll get them next November and get them ready for 2015.” The game marked Moeller’s 11th trip to the state semifinals.

Eastern Corridor deserves final decision I read with interest The Enquirer’s editorial May 22 about ODOT wasting money on the Eastern Corridor when, it was alleged, nobody wants it. The Eastern Corridor has been discussed since at least the 1960s. Originally designated as a relocated U.S. 50, it was shelved due to opposition from some in the region. Since then, travel between Clermont Joe County and Vogel downtown Cincinnati has continued to grow. Because of this unmet need, our region has continued to ask ODOT for help in reaching a consensus solution to the current inefficient and congested routes that over 100,000 commuters must navigate daily. The current ODOT-led effort is a continuation of the most recent request from the mid-1990s that ODOT help find a solution to this problem. ODOT and its partners owe the region nothing less than a conclusive and lasting decision. Should we build it or not build it? And if so, where should it be built? As options stand now, people are driving too long and too far to make this commute. Existing routes cannot handle

current traffic, much less the traffic projected to occur from population and job growth in the corridor. Previous studies have shown that, as a region, we will save 50 million vehicle miles traveled per year by building the Eastern Corridor. The time and money saved, and the decrease in pollution, congestion and aggravation, will greatly improve and even enrich this region. There are alternatives to the Eastern Corridor. One is to build another Big Mac bridge to relieve congestion on Interstate 471. Or we could widen Columbia Parkway (U.S. 50) and widen Eastern Avenue (U.S. 52) to accommodate some of this traffic. We could widen I-71 from Red Bank Road to Downtown. And the no-build option is always a viable alternative. But when the region looked at these issues almost 20 years ago, the Eastern Corridor was chosen as the best solution to study further. With the current effort, ODOT is trying to reach a regional, consensus decision about the future of the Eastern Corridor. This effort must go forward so we don’t spend even more money 10 years from now to study it again, as has happened every decade since the 1960s. Once a “record of decision” is reached, whether to build or not build, it will provide a clear path forward for what the region wants or

does not want for the Eastern Corridor. It is time-consuming and expensive to build consensus around a difficult, contentious project such as the Eastern Corridor. ODOT is not seeking unanimity; they are seeking consensus. And they want everyone to have a chance to be heard. Consequently, ODOT is not trying to talk people into supporting or not supporting the Eastern Corridor, as has been alleged; rather they are trying to inform and explain the program, and also to seek meaningful feedback about the program from as much of the public as possible.

We will continue to disassemble the black market by targeting those exploiting our visa system, shutting down internet advertisements for humans trapped in servitude, and expanding international cooperation in breaking up global trafficking rings.

Despite claims to the contrary, ODOT is listening to anyone and everyone who has an opinion about the Eastern Corridor. On both sides of the issue are those who are passionate, dedicated to their communities and to the region, and willing to invest their time and energy to help shape the future course of this project. There are no bad actors here. With every public meeting, every phone call, every letter, every editorial about the Eastern Corridor, ODOT is learning about the wants and needs of our region. There is simultaneously strong support for, and strong opposition to, the cur-

rent plan. To stop short of a final, consensus “record of decision” would be the biggest waste of all. It would assure that the funds spent to date have been spent in vain, and that we will have Groundhog Day all over again in the next decade. The current process must be completed. A build or no-build decision must be reached. Our region deserves, and demands, nothing less.

CH@TROOM June 5 question What do you think about the push for a federal minimum wage increase to $10.10 from $7.25 an hour?

“Seattle recently made national headlines by raising their minimum wage to $15 per hour. $7.25 per hour has been around awhile and a steady annual climb to $10 or more seems fair. This should have been taking place gradually all along. The highest point for purchasing power for the US minimum wage was in 1969, when the $1.60 an hour minimum wage bought $10.10 in today’s dollars. Had they tied the minimum wage to inflation the figure would be at $10 or more by now. In 1969 US Congressmen made $42,000; they now make $174,000 per year plus lifetime benefits, lobbyist perks and PAC monies. Go Figure!”

Radishes, peas, carrots, pineapple on Rita’s plate I’ve told you before that it doesn’t take much to please me. And today, I am very, very pleased. Ecstatic, in fact. Tony Poe, our county beekeeper, came out and placed five beehives along the perimeter of the tree line across from the field. So that our new resiRita dents Heikenfeld could RITA’S KITCHEN eventually have a bountiful feast of honey from clover, I told my husband, Frank, not to mow the back where the clover grew until the bees settled in with full tummies. Talking about honey reminds me that I need to tell you the recipe for my honey cider allergy drink should be made with organic cider vinegar, not just organic cider, as indicated in the intro to the recipe.

Roasted radishes and carrots with thyme I have been wanting to test this recipe but had to wait until we could harvest our radishes. Roasted radishes are a popular menu item in trendy restaurants, and the carrots add a bit of sweetness. The roasting tames the radishes bite. We grow several kinds. I used the classic round radishes for this dish. 1 bunch small to medium radishes 6 regular carrots, cut into 1/2-inch slices Olive oil Palmful fresh thyme, chopped or 1 teaspoon dried thyme Salt and freshly ground black pepper Lemon Preheat oven to 450. Toss radishes and carrots with oil, thyme, salt and pepper. Roast in single layer until tender, about 20 minutes. Serve with squeeze of lemon juice.

Tips from Rita’s kitchen:

Radishes and their leaves contain vitamin C, and are good for the kidneys and liver.

Peas with prosciutto

Seasonal peas really shine in this dish. Prosciutto is a ham that is cured and air dried. The

saltiness of the prosciutto plays off nicely with the sweetness of the peas. Handful fresh parsley, tied 3 cups fresh peas 1 cup water 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil 1/4 cup finely diced prosciutto Bit of sugar 1 clove garlic, peeled Add everything to a pan and bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer until peas are soft. Remove garlic and parsley. Serve with cooking liquid.

Pineapple icebox cake


I love going through my vintage recipes that are treasures. Apparently they are to some of you, too. Roberta H., a Northern Ky. reader, remembered this recipe from her mother. “She served this cake when she had bridge club when I was young and it had a graham cracker crust,” Roberta said. Let’s hope this one is what Roberta remembers. I can just see this cake being enjoyed by the bridge club ladies! 1/2 cup milk 1/2 pound marshmallows 1/4 cup crushed pineapple, drained 1 cup whipping cream, whipped 1/4 cup chopped nuts 6 graham crackers, crushed Bring milk to a simmer and add marshmallows until almost dissolved. Remove from heat and stir until marshmallows dissolve completely. Cool. Stir in pineapple, whipped cream and nuts. In an 8-inch or 9-imch square pan, sprinkle half of the cracker crumbs. Pour pineapple mixture on top. Sprinkle with rest of crumbs. Chill several hours before serving.


Thanks, Escoffier Society!

Wow, was I surprised when Chef John Kinsella, Director Les Disciples D’Auguste Escoffier, shared with me that I was going to be inducted into the Escoffier 2014 Hall of Fame. John let me know this after we finished taping “Love starts in the kitchen,” my Union Township cable TV show. The Disciple Escoffier Society is the premier gastronomic

with state or federal regulators. Most financial advisors have earned the CFP, CFA, Howard or CPA Ain desigHEY HOWARD! nations. Siegmann says, “I would call into question the knowledge of salespeople without those respected credentials.” Check with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission to see if any complaints have been filed against an advisor, rather than just checking with an advisor’s happiest clients. Beware of a hard sell because, Siegmann says, “A good value proposition should sell itself. High pressure tactics mean your advisor is eager to make a commission check. Ultimately, a long term relationship with your advisor is best. If you experience a hard sell, your advisor may not stay with you for a long time.” Never write checks to an individual or their firm unless it is a large and trusted custodian like Charles Schwab,

Vanguard or Fidelity. Siegmann says, “Your money should be held in your name. Also, there are no benefits worth the risk of co-mingling your money with others in an ‘omnibus account.’” Next, Siegmann says, “You want your money in an independent account, not in your advisor’s account or with his or her firm.” You should receive regular statements from a qualified, trusted, independent custodian. Ask how the advisor is getting paid. Some work for a set fee or percentage while others get commissions based on the investment products they sell such as life insurance or annuities. Commission-based advisors can have a place but you have to be careful clients don’t get loaded up with expensive products. So now, as many begin to invest again, you need to carefully pick a financial advisor. Howard Ain's column appears bi-weekly in the Community Press newspapers.

Ever come across a sure-fire investment that guarantees great returns on your money? It’s a sales pitch that’s been used many times and, unfortunately, many people have fallen for it. Many of these get-richquick investments turn out to be nothing more than Ponzi schemes in which old investors are paid with money from new investors. In the Cincinnati area we’ve seen such schemes over the years from a so-called ticket broker to a man who guaranteed a 10 percent return on people’s money. Both men eventually ended up in prison, just like Bernie Madoff, but not before a lot of people ended up losing tens of thousands of dollars. There are ways to spot such Ponzi schemes and Rob Siegmann, of the Financial Management Group in Blue Ash, offers seven tips. First, he says, “Make sure you understand the investment strategy and how it works…If you don’t understand the investment, look for a different financial strategy.” Second, check your advisor’s credentials to see if they’re registered Click “happening” for fun things to do downtown.

Hospital, Beacon team to serve high schools, colleges The Christ Hospital Health Network and Beacon Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine have created a sports medicine program in Greater Cincinnati, offering a broad scope of outreach programs to the community, including comprehensive medical care and services to area high school and college teams. Dr. Timothy E. Kremchek, who also serves as medical director of the Cincinnati Reds, will oversee the effort and lead an outreach team consisting of both Beacon and Christ Hospital leadership. In addition to enhanced services within high school athletic programs and sports teams, a key feature of the partnership will be expanded offerings of educational programs to both schools and the community. In early 2013, Beacon initiated an educational outreach program for high school students which provide physicianled classroom lectures followed by cadaveric lab

opportunities at its Sharonville offices. It is the aim of the partnership to broaden this program, providing education to the community through seminars and events focused on sport injury prevention, evaluation and treatment, said Kremchek. “We look forward to taking things to the next level and creating a never-before-seen program of comprehensive care and services; not only for high schools and colleges, but also for the communities surrounding them.” “As an independent orthopaedic and sports medicine practice, it’s important to find partners who share our vision in providing high quality, responsive, and comprehensive care to the students, faculty, families, and surrounding communities,” said Glen Prasser, CEO of Beacon Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine. “The Christ Hospital and Beacon clearly share the same vision and we look forward to working with them.”
