New Oakley restaurant set to open A ‘family-style’ eatery is planned By Forrest Sellers

OAKLEY — Great Scott will soon have a restaurant in Oakley. The Withamsville restaurant, which manager Anne Reid described as a “familystyle” type of establishment, will open a new location on Madison Road. It will move into the former Nick’s Chops and Chasers at 3355 Madison Road. Reid said the interior will be renovated and that plans are for the new restaurant to open in July. It will be the third Tristate restaurant opened by Scott

Elsaesser, who in addition to the Great Scott in Withamsville, also operates a Great Scott Diner in Amelia. Reid said the Withamsville location has been open for seven years. She said a favorite menu item is the New York Strip steak, although she said appetizers such as the onion rings are also very popular. A wide selection of beers is also offered, she said. Reid said the Oakley location will accommodate rehearsal dinners and special gatherings. She said Oakley had an appeal in that it provided a location on the other side of town. Hours and other details are still to be determined. Great Scott has a website at

FAIRFAX — Blues and classic rock will soon emanate from Ziegler Park. The annual Fairfax Summer Concert will start at 6 p.m. Friday, June 22. Ziegler Park is located on Southern Avenue off Wooster Pike. Live music will start at 7 p.m. “I love everything about this,” said Chandra Buswell, recreation department supervisor for Fair-

fax. “I love seeing people meeting each other.” Buswell said a typical scene will be children running around with a glow stick proBuswell vided by a neighborhood officer. This is the sixth year for the event. Buswell not only helped organize it, but she also recommended the feature performer Phatty and

the Mojo after seeing them perform at a social gathering. The group will perform a mixture of cover tunes ranging from blues and country to classic rock. Refreshments will be available at various booths, but Buswell said guests are welcome to bring their own food. Money raised at the individual food vendor booths will go toward the various organizations involved. See CONCERT, Page A2

New playground is being installed in Mariemont park Parents’ group helped raise money By Lisa Wakeland

Just in time for summer break, children in Mariemont will soon have a new playground. The playground at Dogwood Park off Pleasant Street is now closed and will re-open the week


of June 18 while the old equipment is removed and the new play structure is installed. “The equipment is deteriorating and it’s become a liability,” said resident Merret Collister, who spearheaded the project for the Mariemont Preschool Parents Group. The parents’ group will contribute about $13,000 and the village will contribute an additional $31,000 for the playground re-

placement. “We wanted to do something positive for the kids,” she said of the playground replacement plan. The two main play structures are an average of 16 years old and are a combination of wood, plastic and steel that has been splintering and rusting for a while, Collister said. The new playground is composed of 100 percent recycled,

composite materials and has a lifetime warranty, she said. It will be one large structure with slides, balance beams, climbing structures and there will be the same number of swings around the playground. The colors are similar and the playground will be handicap accessible, but the layout of the play area will change, Collister said. Health and Recreation Committee members earlier this year

were a bit skeptical of a complete replacement at first, but Councilwoman Denise McCarthy said her mind changed after seeing the rust on the equipment. “The concern is it’s going to start affecting the structural integrity,” she said. The village’s maintenance department will remove the old play units and the metal will be

Irish center hosts Bloomsday Event honors James Joyce’s book ‘Ulysses’ By Lisa Wakeland

At its heart, James Joyce’s “Ulysses” is about everyone. Though the famous novel by the Irish author follows Leopold Bloom on his journey through Dublin on June 16, 1904, it is a universal story about people, said UC professor Philip Thompson.

“This was a new type of novel that shows all the people of the world are really living their own epic,” said Thompson, who teaches a class on “Ulysses” at the University of Cincinnati Blue Ash campus. “It show that us common people are heroes in our everyday life, and that’s why it’s so good.” The novel follows Bloom through his good and bad adventures on a single day and it was so wildly popular that an annual tradition was born – Bloomsday, which occurs June 16 every year and this Bloomsday celebrates the 90th anniversary of the book’s publishing. More than 60 countries celebrate this literary holiday, and the Irish Heritage Center in Columbia Tusculum will host its own Bloomsday bash at 7 p.m. Saturday, June 16. “It’s a very famous book and is considered a classic,” said Maureen Kennedy, co-founder of the Irish Heritage Center. “It was translated into

Coney Island ticket is found A lucky accident recently turned up a piece of local treasure. Mariemont Elementary is a hub of activity as the school district completes a major renovation project, and one day, as Tony Sharp was finishing drywall in the building, he bumped into something and two small pieces of paper fell out of the ceiling and floated down to the floor. The two pieces formed one ticket to Plainville High School’s annual day at Coney Island dated June 17, 1943 – in the midst of World War II. “After all the demolition and renovation it’s so neat to discover this because you don’t expect to find anything else,” said Kathy Ryan, program manager for the Marie-

Irish author James Joyce’s book, "Ulysses," sparked an annual tradition called Bloomsday, which is based on the book's main character, Leopold Bloom. PROVIDED many languages and people all over the world celebrate this book.” To celebrate Bloomsday, Kennedy said there will be readings from “Ulysses,” dramatic re-enactments of various scenes, songs and more. The tea and pub rooms will be open, and admission is $10. There is free parking at the back of the center, 3905 Eastern Ave. “It’s a really fun day and you don’t have to be Irish to enjoy it,” she said.

Thompson explained that the tradition began in 1954 when four literarytypes decided to retrace Leopold Bloom’s journey. The men started at Joyce’s home outside the city and tried to make their way through Dublin, stopping for a pint at every pub along the way. In the following years many people joined the annual walk through the Irish capital and the Bloomsday tradition lives on around the world.

For an additional 15 cents those heading to Coney Island could catch a round-trip ride on the Island Queen or pay an extra 10 cents to use the auto gate.

Meeting to address Oakley’s traffic By Forrest Sellers

ing. The committee will meet 6:30 p.m. Monday, June 18, at the Oakley Recreation Center, 3882 Paxton Ave. Bensman said Edwards has had a considerable increase in truck traffic associated with projects such as the Rookwood Exchange development and road repairs along Edwards. The Rookwood Exchange is an expansion of the Rookwood Commons and will include a hotel and

OAKLEY — Hyde Park Avenue resident Jeff Bensman is tired of traffic issues on Edwards Road. The construction traffic is a mess, he said during the June 5 Oakley Community Council meeting. Oakley Community Council member Craig Rozen said issues associated with Edwards Road will be addressed at an upcoming Traffic, Pedestrian and Safety Committee meet-

“I worry about the wear and tear on the city streets,” said Bensman referring to the Rozen number of flatbed trucks he has seen traveling along Edwards. “My other concern is safety. (These vehicles) tend to park near the intersection of Edwards and Hyde Park Avenue and that limits visibility.”

other attractions. Although Norwood officials have approved the development, a number of Oakley residents as well as members of the neighborhood council have expressed concerns about the project and its impact on streets such as Hyde Park, Atlanta and Arbor avenues. A group called Save Oakley Near Rookwood was organized last year to address potential issues associated with the project.

Hyde Park selects Tom Rowe as new councilman HYDE PARK — Resident Tom Rowe was not only recently honored by the Hyde Park Neighborhood Council, he’s now a member. Rowe, a four-year resident of Hyde Park, has been appointed to serve on the Hyde Park Neighborhood Council. He was also a member of the Parents for Hyde Park School, a group which was selected as Person(s) of the Year by the Hyde Park Neighborhood Council. “It’s humbling to see that a group of parents can facilitate change,” said Rowe, 39, who was one of the founding members of the group.

It will house gifted students from Riverview East Academy as well as include elements of both neighborhood and magnet schools.

from various communities near Hyde Park School. The committee is set to begin meeting in the coming months. His son, Gray, will begin attending Hyde Park School this fall. In addition to educational-related matters, Rowe said he is also interested in land use, specifically zoning and development. "It’s a wonderful community,” he said describing Hyde Park. “(Council and I) would like to see its continued vibrancy and success.” Rowe is a real estate developer and attorney for the Miller-Valentine Group. Rowe is replacing Paul Naberhaus, who is retiring from council to pursue volunteer interests.

these topics will be discussed at the upcoming meeting. He said a major focus will be drafting a traffic plan for the community based on input and feedback from those attending previous meetings. “I think it is imperative we have a master plan that addresses the concerns of Oakley residents,” he said. Rozen said traffic officials as well as Cincinnati City Council members have been invited to attend the meeting.

Bensman and several others attending the Oakley Community Council meeting fear problems will only get worse as the project continues. Several questioned whether parking requirements were being violated with vehicles possibly exceeding allotted parking times and wondered whether police could take a more active role in issuing citations. Rozen, who heads the Traffic, Pedestrian and Safety Committee, said

COLUMBIA TWP. — An old favorite recently returned to the Mariemont Promenade shopping center in hopes of bringing its many customers along for the ride. Like practically all the businesses in the Mariemont Promenade, Serenity Nail Salon and Spa left several years ago due to the landslide issues behind the building. However, the business came back just a couple weeks ago, eager to pick up where they left off. Manager Chinh Le said once the landslide issues were addressed and new owners took over the property, Serenity signed a new lease. The salon spent the previous two years off of Red Bank Road. Serenity originally opened approximately 10

Columbia Twp. is seeing interest from developers By Rob Dowdy


Mariemont High School students use a combination of district-provided computers and their own laptops as part of the one-to-one technology program, which will expand in the 2012-2013 school year. LISA WAKELAND/THE COMMUNITY PRESS

Mariemont schools to implement 1:1 program By Lisa Wakeland

Mariemont City Schools will roll out the one-to-one technology program for next school year. The board of education unanimously approved the program May 15, and it will allow students in grades 4 to 12 to bring their own laptop or tablet computer to class or use a district-provided device. Students in second and third grade will have classroom sets of iPads to use. The district started the one-to-one technology pilot two years ago at the high school and expanded it to other grades for the 2011-2012 school year. High School Principal Jim Renner said administrators and teachers saw immediate benefits to hav-

ing technology in the classroom. The students showed more creativity, collaboration and critical thinking in their projects. “It made learning a 24/7 experience,” he said. One of the biggest issues during the pilot program was students often had better laptops or tablets at home, so the district expanded the bring-yourown-technology program, Renner said. Terrace Park Elementary School Principal Linda Lee said experimenting with different devices helped determine what worked best for different grade levels. For the younger students, the tablets matched the students’ developmental level and flipping through the iPad was intuitive for them, she said. As the one-to-one pro-

gram is implemented during the 2012-2013 school year, Lee said it will be important to sort out any network, software or other technological issues in the first few weeks of school. “By front-loading the organizational work we really set the kids up for success and … the technology should support the learning,” she said. Mariemont Junior High Principal Keith Koehne explained that students who do not have his or her own device may use one of the district’s computers, but will have an additional $100 school fee per year. Those fees typically paid for supplies, workbooks and other associated classroom needs, and he said the district would have to realign fees to put more toward the technology devices.


Business developers are taking interest in Columbia Township sites. Township Administrator Michael Lemon said there are several potential developments that could land in the township. There are also several that could be advancing toward construction. Columbia Township trustees recently heard a proposal for a new car wash by developer Robert Gerwin. Car Wash USA Express is a car wash franchise that’s expanding to the Cincinnati area. Gerwin said the car wash would make a $2.2 million investment and have one manager and six part-time employees.

However, the township is concerned about the proposed location of the business, which would be positioned in front of the proposed Ridgepoint development at the former Kmart site near the intersection of Ridge and Highland. The township is awaiting other site plans that would move the car wash to either side of the Ridgepoint development. Columbia Township is also hoping to move forward on a proposed development that consists of three-story apartment complexes, storefronts and a roundabout along Plainville Road. Rick Greiwe, of Greiwe Development Group, gave a brief presentation to the Mariemont Village Council about the potential development

and roundabout along Plainville Road in Columbia Township. The plan was sent to the village’s planning commission, which voted to approve a study of the benefits of the roundabout. Lemon said there appears to be “a groundswell” of support for the development, and the township is awaiting word on the study. “I think there’s a lot of positive momentum,” he said. Lemon noted he had recently been in talks with a representative from Family Dollar about the former Golden Corral site at the Ridge and Highland intersection. He said that was very preliminary, but shows developers are taking an interest in township sites.

Plainville Road could look radically different if Columbia Township constructs a roundabout and allows a development company to build three-story apartment complexes with storefronts along the road. ROB DOWDY/ THE COMMUNITY PRESS

Kilgour kids design app to raise funds Gannett News Service Students at Kilgour Elementary School in Mount Lookout are taking the idea of a kids’ lemonade stand to a new level. Students recently launched a “Lemon Smash” smartphone application that they designed themselves in class – all the way down to the lemons with faces and the “moo-lah” cows. The students hope to turn this real-life project into real cash for their school. The app will sell for 99 cents on Google Play. “Lemon Smash” is the end product of a unique new fiveweek financial literacy course offered at Kilgour this year that leverages partnerships between the school, nonprofits, businesses and universities. Organizers say it’s also the first application designed by elementary school students that both teaches financial literacy and generates revenue for its school partner. “It all dealt with them looking at projects and real-world applications and how financial literacy ties in,” said Kilgour Principal

LEMON SMASH To view a tutorial on the app, visit:

Angela Cook Frazier. She said the students were thrilled to see their ideas come together in a marketable game that people might actually buy. It makes the lesson real, she said. “For them to see something they’ve done come to light is key,” she said. “Lemon Smash” teaches financial literacy through a game in which the player can earn money by catching lemons and smashing them to turn them into lemonade. The game is made more fun by the details that the students came up with themselves. The lemons sometimes have faces. The customer is a lemonade-guzzling cow. The project involved 150 Kilgour students in grades 1-6. They partnered with the nonprofit

Students at Kilgour Elementary participated in a cooperative program to learn about entrepreneurship and technology. Partnership for Innovation and Education, founded by Mary Welsh Schlueter, a mother of three Kilgour students. Welsh Schlueter, who has a business background, developed the curriculum from a Harvard Business School case study teaching concepts of product life

cycle, SWOT (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats) analysis and marketing strategies. She modified the course for elementary-school students and brought in Northern Kentucky University’s College of Informatics to do the technical leg-

work – with the help of its own NKU students – of creating the app. Sprint lent computer tablets to facilitate the work. The University of Cincinnati’s Economics Center analyzed before-andafter financial literacy test scores of the Kilgour students. The older kids’ scores improved more than those of the younger students, but a more complete course analysis is needed to determine how effective the course was, said Jeff Rexhausen, associate director of research. Projects and partnerships like this one are something this district of 33,000 students expects to do more of as new national curriculum standards called the “Common Core” roll out in Ohio and 44 other states. The new standards place an increased emphasis on project-based learning, technology and innovation. “Kids are ready for this. They learn it, and they use it,” said Welsh Schlueter. “You can get them thinking about entrepreneurship at age 5.” Organizers had no estimates on how much the school might earn from the app sales.

Crusaders volley to the crown By Scott Springer

KENWOOD — The Moeller volleyball team took advantage of hosting the state championships by winning the Division I title May 27 over Hilliard Darby 25-20, 25-10, 25-19. After back-to-back seasons of being state runnerup, coach Matt McLaughlin led the Crusaders to their eight state title in his first year as head coach. McLaughlin played on two state championship seasons in 2004 and 2005. “It was great to win two state titles as a player, but as a coach it’s more exciting because these young men worked so hard for the last eight months and finally got what they deserved,” McLaughlin said. “I was overcome with pride and happiness for them.” The Crusaders benefited from home-cooked

Seniors from around the area played in the Southwest Ohio Football Coaches Association/ Ron Woyan East-West All-Star game at Kings High School June 7. The East won the game, 17-14. The win marked the sixthstraight victory for the East squad.

“He just turned it up in the state finals,” McLaughlin said. “That’s the best match he had all year. He really just played lights out. ” Setting many of Moeller’s kills was Matt Kanetzke, who saw his playing time increase significantly from his junior to senior season. The setter is often an “unsung” position, but McLaughlin sang Kanetzke’s praises afterward. McLaughlin has 12 juniors returning, including Casey Pieper who had 10 kills in the final. Jake Leeseman is also back. He played a crucial role by nailing three straight kills after McLaughlin’s key time-out in the first game against Darby. “Not many teams get a chance to win a state championship on their home court,” McLaughlin said . “It was an electric atmosphere.”

had 150 or so students there in our student section. The support was outstanding.” Moeller finished up the season 24-2 and didn’t lose a game in their final 14 matches. That statistic was briefly in jeopardy in the opening contest of the finals when Hilliard Darby led at 17-14. At that point, McLaughlin called timeout . “My mantra in the locker room was we just have to play Moeller volleyball,” McLaughlin said. “That’s good first touches and good first contact. I just kept it real positive and said, ‘Hey, we’ve got a great opportunity to go out and turn it around.’ Credit to the boys as we outscored Darby 11-3 and really controlled the rest of the tournament.” Leading the way in the championship was outgoing senior Garrett Morrissey who was on a mission with 13 kills.

Foster parenting is love story with heart My foster care story is a love story. But it’s not the kind of love story you expect. It begins with my divorce. In spite of my three beautiful children, I was feeling sorry for myself and began searching for something more. The answer to my prayers found me. A teenage girl from my neighborhood came to me for advice. Weeks later, she approached me, and told me I was very helpful to her. She said, “Miss Maria, you should become a foster mother.”

The young lady went on to confess that she herself was a foster child. “What?” I said. “You can’t be; you don’t look like a foster child!” She responded, “That’s because I have a good foster mother.” My young neighbor refused to give up on me. She referred me to her foster mother, who in turn, told me about Lighthouse Youth Services. The staff at Lighthouse is amazing! They are genuinely friendly, take time to get to

know you, welcome you with open arms, and value each and every person involved with foster care. I cannot say enough wonderMaria Bonds COMMUNITY PRESS ful things about them. They GUEST COLUMNIST taught and prepared me for what I may face as a foster parent, and are still there to support me every step of the way.

I have been a foster parent for six years now. I have had 11 foster children in those years. Some more challenging than others, some staying longer than others, but, no matter what, each of them experienced love. It is sad to think that not every child out there gets a hug before crawling into bed. I wish everyone had the opportunity to see the transformation of a child, with just a little compassion, patience and love. I have seen children completely changed in a matter of days. All

Last week’s question Should the Ohio General Assembly consider a ban on the sale of large sodas and other sugary drinks in an effort to combat obesity? Why or why not?

“As soon as they ban ‘Housewives of Orange County,’ ‘Jersey Shore,’ half of the items sold at Kroger, girls' shorts that say 'Dancer' on the butt, saying 'should have went' instead of 'should have gone,’ Panera Bread, Big Apple Bagels, anything at Starbucks ... I could continue but I do have a life. Government will let you kill your unborn baby, but you can't have a Big Gulp? Oh, the insanity.” L.A.D.B.

Learn to protect people with disabilities from scams, fraud A few years ago, Hamilton County Commissioner Greg Hartmann created the Coalition to Stop Fraud, Scams and Abuse. Hamilton County Developmental Disabilities Services is a member agency of this working group whose focus this month is on scams and fraud against residents with disabilities. Unfortunately, those with disabilities in our society have not been excluded from the increase in fraud and scams experienced by the general population in recent years. Individuals with disabilities are often more vulnerable, with less support and capacity to protect themselves. The Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities, which collects misappropriation data state wide, reported that the number of substantiated thefts involving individuals with disabilities increased by 52 percent, from 961 in 2010 to 1,459 in 2011. The thefts were primarily identity, medications and personal property. To stem this dramatic increase, we want to share information that can help prevent fraud. Protecting an individual’s personal information is the only way to reduce identity theft over time. Social Security numbers, birth certificates, checking and savings account num-

they needed was for someone to teach them what love is. It is then that they learn to love themselves. And it really does work, if you take the time. Love changes people for the better, and I see it in my home every time a kid comes in. And the best part is, Lighthouse foster care makes it possible. After all, the heart of Lighthouse is love.

bers, and personal identification numbers (PINs) are all key pieces of information that must be protected. Alice Individuals Pavey with disabilCOMMUNITY PRESS ities require GUEST COLUMNIST assistance from caregivers for many of their daily needs. As a result, personal information is often accessible to many unauthorized people. We urge that access to personal information be restricted to the highest degree and that a shredder be used to discard sensitive data that is no longer required. Theft of medications, including narcotics and psychotropics, from individuals with disabilities continues to be a concern. The best step to avoid theft of medications is to establish a strict system for monitoring their handling. All medications should be stored securely and safely. Overstocking medications should be avoided, since this presents a much greater risk of theft. Personal property can include money in its various forms (cash, checks, credit, debit and ATM cards, etc.) as well as jewelry, electronics, clothes and

even furniture. Cash needs to be secured appropriately and accounts reconciled on a frequent, scheduled basis to make sure expenses are appropriate and balances are accurate. Larger, more expensive items like electronics and furniture should be inventoried (including serial and model numbers) and tracked to protect an individual’s property. To protect themselves, individuals need education regarding the risks of sharing information with strangers. Make sure that individuals know how to report a theft. Provide access to appropriate phone numbers to local law enforcement, County Board Service Facilitators and the hotline number.

“Even though this kind of legislation seems to be the trend these days as we move toward empowering the government to protect us from ourselves, no.

Ribs are a good dish for Father’s Day

I still chuckle when I ask my husband, Frank, what he wants for Rita Father’s Heikenfeld Day. His answer has RITA’S KITCHEN never varied in all the years we’ve been married: “Some peace and quiet and barbecued ribs.” The ribs are the easy part … and are still his favorite. The peace and quiet is another matter. Remember all the dads in your life, biological and otherwise. As I tell you each year, send a card, give them a call, or invite them to join in the feast.

Grilled baby back ribs

Brine for up to 4 pounds of ribs: This is optional, but I hope you take the time to do it, since brining is a way of increasing the moisture holding capacity of meat, resulting in a moister product when it’s cooked. 1 cup Kosher salt 1/2 cup sugar 1 gallon cold water

Dissolve salt and sugar in water. Brine 4 hours, remove from brine, pat dry and proceed with rub. Rita’s rub: Sprinkle ribs with rub up to a day head. Leftover rub can be stored in the

Ribs, with a rub and grilled, make a good Father’s Day dish. THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD frig. Mix together: 6 tablespoons garlic powder 3 tablespoons chili powder 2 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon cumin 2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons salt 2 teaspoons coarsely ground black pepper 2 teaspoons Spanish hot or sweet smoked paprika or regular hot or sweet paprika 2 teaspoons allspice

Ribs: 4 pounds meaty baby back pork ribs, cut into portions To season ribs: Sprinkle rub on both sides. Put on baking sheet and cover with foil. Refrigerate at least 2 hours or up to l day.

To grill ribs: Grill ribs over medium heat until tender and cooked, turning occasionally, about 25-35 minutes. Then baste with sauce. Brush each side generously. Continue grilling until sauce forms a sticky coating, about 3 minutes per side, brushing more sauce on as needed. Serve, passing more barbeque sauce alongside. My hot and smoky barbecue sauce After cooking, adjust seasonings, adding more vinegar, etc. if you like. I always add more brown sugar to make it taste similar to Montgomery Inn’s. 4 cups catsup 1/2 cup cider vinegar

Combine everything in saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to simmer and cook until dark and thick, about 20 minutes.

made a few years ago. Wash cookware with hot, soapy water and a stiff brush. (Lodge says it’s OK to use soap this time because you are preparing to re-season the cookware). Rinse and dry completely. Apply a thin, even coating of melted solid vegetable shortening (or cooking oil of your choice) to the cookware (inside and out). Place aluminum foil on the bottom rack of the oven to catch any dripping. Set oven temperature to 350400 degrees. Place cookware upside down on the top rack of oven. Bake for at least one hour. After the hour, turn oven off and let

cookware cool in oven. Store uncovered, in a dry place when cooled. Tip: I do use a bit of soap to wash my cast iron pans regularly, though the debate rages on about using soap at all. After the pan is completely dry, I’ll heat it 1 minute on the stove to open up the pores, then I’ll wipe a little oil all over the inside. As it cools, the pores close, keeping the pan seasoned.

Several of you have asked about this. And if you are ever lucky enough to come across an old American made cast iron pan, like Lodge or Griswold, don’t hesitate to buy it. In my opinion, these gems are still the best as far as quality of iron and workmanship. Log onto my YouTube channel ( to see my video on seasoning iron skillets. Here’s the most current information. This is what Lodge cookware recommends, and they are an American company manufacturing American cast iron. Lodge’s recommendations are only slightly different than my video, which was

BUSINESS NOTES Medical Communication Consultants of Columbia-Tusculum in Cincinnati reports an average of 80 percent annual growth rate for the past five years. The medical writing service creates documents to help Kleeman pharmaceutical companies take new drug and medical devices from clinical trials through Food and Drug Administration (FDA) application. Keith Kleeman, 37, Medical Communication Consultants president, credits his company’s success to a combination of factors, which include efficiency; the flexibility of employing an outsourced medical writing team; and scalability of projects. For more information about Medical Communication Consultants, go to or call 891-2337.

Energy efficiency

Two, local small businesses have combined efforts to bring new energy efficient technologies to the Cincinnati region. EcoEnvironments in Hyde Park and Greener Stock in ColumbiaTusculum are offering two economical solutions to this demand: The NEST Learning Thermostat and Velux Solar Water Heating. According to the EPA, a properly programmed thermostat can save up to 20 percent of a home’s annual heating and cooling costs. With this in mind, the new NEST learning thermostat is taking home automation to the next level. By sensing your movements, it learns your habits and automatically adjusts the temperature thereby maximizing its efficiency. The Solar Thermal Water Heating system from VELUX offers homeowners instant savings on utility bills. Unlike photovoltaic solar panels, VELUX solar collectors have been designed to hug the roofline,

creating a streamlined, aesthetically pleasing appearance, much like a skylight. Grant funds are still available for this technology from the State of Ohio via Green Energy Ohio and a 30 percent tax credit is available from the federal government. Both technologies comply with the incentives provided by the Greater Cincinnati Energy Alliance.

JCC is hosting a Summer Cinema Series June 26-28 Based on feedback from the winter Jewish & Israeli Film Festival, the Mayerson JCC will offer more award-winning films and more comfortable seating at a great price at the JCC Summer Cinema Series, June 26-28. At 7 p.m. Tuesday, June 26, see “Melting Away” (Namess Ba'geshem), a 2012 Jewish & Israeli Film Festival Audience Favorite, and the first feature film in the history of Israeli cinema that deals with the topic of parents and their relationships with their transgendered children. This drama is an emotional tale that touches on real issues of sexuality and how everyday people handle themselves when

forced to deal with life and death and what is left in the wake. On Wednesday, June 27, at 1 p.m. and 7 p.m., enjoy the comedy, “Arab Labor” (Avoda Avarit). Meet the Palestinian Seinfield, Amjad, a hapless but goodhearted journalist, who darts in and out of hilarious and poignant confrontations with his sassy wife, their smart-as-a-whip daughter, his overbearing parents and his hound-dog younger friend. He neurotically tries to conform to expectations in both Jewish and Arab worlds, and generally bungles it. Ending the Summer Cinema Series, “This is Sodom” (Zohi Sdom), shows on Thursday, June 28, at 7

p.m. The biggest box office comedy hit in Israel in 25 years, “This is Sodom” is a raucous and bawdy biblical comedy in the best tradition of Monty Python and Mel Brooks. As God’s wrath draws closer, Abraham, Lot, the Sodomites and their rulers, and even the avenging angels, are seduced by the decadent delights of the most famous Sin City in history. General admission is $8 per film for J members and $10 per film for the public. Purchase tickets early to reserve your seat, either online at, or contact Cultural Arts Manager Courtney Cummings at 761-7500.

Carol Mundy, head naturalist at Glenwood Gardens, takes Mariemont DAR members back in time to the early 1800s. THANKS TO REBECCA LUBITZ

A look back to 1803

DAR members learn the impact of nature on life

MARIEMONT — Hamilton County Park District naturalist and head naturalist at Glenwood Gardens, Carol Mundy, took Mariemont Chapter National Society Daughters of the American Revolution members and guests back in time to the early 1800s at the April 21 meeting in the Mariemont Parish Center. An extensive exhibit was made available for viewing prior to the meeting. Members and guests were presented with educational information regarding daily life in Ohio at the time of statehood. Mundy’s educational and humorous presentation involved members in her dramatization of the needs and education of women by their mothers

as well as the exchange of information between the early pioneers and Indian women. Members were made aware of many overlooked or misinterpreted aspects of nature in the daily life of our ancestors, particularly through examples of how women managed their homes, the type of foods prepared and herbs collected for food and medicinal purposes. Mundy exhibited native plants chosen from her own yard as she explained their processing and use for daily life. In addition, she introduced the group to samples of food prepared in the tradition of 1803. Following her presentation, members expressed a new appreciation for those “weeds” pulled from yards on a daily basis as well as renewed respect for the ingenuity and dedication to family of the women in our past.

The program presented by Mundy supports one of the objectives of the Mariemont Chapter, that of education and preservation of information from the past. The Mariemont chapter is part of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution, a non-profit, non-political volunteer women’s service organization dedicated to preserving American history, securing America’s future through better education and promoting patriotism. Women who are interested in obtaining more information about DAR goals and projects, chapters in your area and the application process are invited to go to For particular information regarding the Mariemont chapter go to

The Society of St. Vincent de Paul is asking all Greater Cincinnati residents to donate a new fan, new window air conditioner or provide a monetary donation now through Aug. 11 to help local families in need have proper cooling and ventilation this summer.

Group to provide eyeglasses to students

Led by President Marianne Beard, The Cincinnati Woman’s Club, in conjunction with multiple health partners, area philanthropists, and some public funding, is poised to provide prescription eyeglasses to all Cincinnati Public School children who need vision correction through the to-be-established Vision Care Clinic in the Oyler School-Based Health Center. There are currently no primary eye and vision care services offered in Cincinnati School-Based Health Centers. Last year’s eyesight screenings revealed that one in three children at Oyler needed corrective lenses, but by year’s end fewer than half actually had received glasses. The Cincinnati Woman’s

Club wants to ensure that all children at Oyler who need eyeglasses will get them. To achieve this goal Beard has designated “Through the Eyes of a Child” as her President’s Project for 2012. Cincinnati Woman’s Club members will help provide funds for building renovation and equipment that is to be installed at Oyler’s School-Based Health Center. Once the clinic is up and running it will be a sustainable, self-funded program. Approximately 80 percent of learning under normal circumstances is through vision acquisition. Eye and vision health play a significant role in a child’s ability to learn, socialize, and develop complex motor skills.


If a child can’t see the board, or the teacher or the front of the class, it will obviously adversely affect the child’s academic achievement. Through the combined efforts of school district administrators, Cincinnati’s health department and committed community leaders, including the Cincinnati Woman’s Club, Oyler will be the first school in the region to have an eye clinic that provides vision exams and glasses. The Cincinnati Woman’s Club’s tradition of volunteerism and philanthropy dates back to 1897. The Cincinnati Woman’s Club President’s Project began in 1947 when the club president envisioned a carnival to raise funds for the area’s hungry children. Following the carnival’s success, similar fundraising events were conducted biennially, each closely identified with the Cincinnati Woman’s Club president and her special philanthropy.

Cincinnati Woman's Club members Sue Wilson, of Wyoming, Sally Stirsman, a Columbia Tusculum resident, Sara Alley, of Indian Hill, and Gail Furthman, of Kenwood, are proud to be involved in establishing a Vision Care Clinic at Oyler Elementary. THANKS TO ROSEMARY SCHLACHTER
