Chief’s dual role evolving By Lisa Wakeland

How will success be measured? That’s the challenge the Mariemont Safety Committee is facing as it evaluates the new combined police and fire chief position. The committee recently agreed that Police Chief Rick Hines is making progress as fire chief in his new combined role, but there needs to be an objective way to measure his success in the position. Hines is on a six-month probation period in the position. Mayor Dan Policastro appointed Hines to the position in January and council approved the appointment at the end of April. Councilman Andy Black asked Hines what logistical challenges he has faced in the past month. Hines said that not having an assistant fire chief has been difficult and the transition to his new leadership role was not as smooth as he expected. He said morale within the fire department is improving, but it is still not where he wants it to be. Councilman Jeff Andrews said the committee needs to agree on a list of objective measures for Hines’ progress at the end of his probationary period. Suggestions included having defined expectations for firefighters and operation procedures, increased training exercises, identifying issues with equipment and increased morale within the fire department. Councilman Dennis Wolter, chairman of the Safety Committee, said some items will be hard to quantify and council will need a certain level of comfort with Hines in his new role.


Summit Country Day School junior Simon Chow will play the trumpet at Carnegie Hall. Chow is a finalist in the American High School Honors Performance Series.

Trumpeting his success

Summit student to play Carnegie Hall By Forrest Sellers

Trumpet player Simon Chow said he wasn’t intimidated by the three valves. “It didn’t seem that hard (to play), and I could make a noise come from it,” he said. However, Chow, a junior at Summit Country Day School, is doing more than making noise with his trumpet. He is achieving honors with his skills. Later this month, he will perform at Carnegie Hall as a finalist in the American High School Honors Performance Series. During the fifth grade, Chow

“He is a sensitive trumpet player, and that is hard to come by.”

chose the trumpet as his instrument of choice in music class. “He is a sensitive trumpet player, and that is hard to come by,” said band instructor Sarah Nowlin, who has coached Chow since the fifth-grade. “He has always had the desire to perform well.” Before buying the trumpet,

Chow said his parents had an agreement with him he would at least play through high school. For Chow, though, playing the trumpet is more of a passion than a task. “It’s captivated me,” he said. “It’s all brass and flashy. I like how it projects.” Chow said the biggest challenge is learning how to breathe properly while using the trumpet. He said he plans to continue playing and will likely join an orchestra in college. A resident of Montgomery, Chow also performs with the Blue Ash Youth Symphony Orchestra.

Property owners may object to project By Forrest Sellers

A proposed road connector may face opposition from property owners. Last month Cincinnati City Council passed a resolution declaring its intent to buy 24 properties to build the Kennedy Connector, said Matt Jones, a member of the Oakley Community Council and chief of staff to Cincinnati City Councilwoman Leslie Ghiz. He said the majority of these properties would be on Ibsen Avenue and on Ridge and Madi-

son roads. Jones said seven or eight of these owners would likely be involved in further discussions so the process can move forward. The connector will primarily provide a connection between the intersections of Ridge Road and Ibsen Avenue with Kennedy Avenue and Duck Creek Road and then to Interstate 71 and the Norwood lateral. The project has been under discussion for several years in conjunction with a proposed mixeduse development known as Millworks Town Center in Oakley.

The Kennedy Connector is vital to the development’s success, according to the development agreement with the city. The Oakley Community Council has expressed concerns about the status of the Kennedy Connector at previous meetings. Recently $12 million in grant funding was provided for the road project. “(This is) a little bit of good news,” said council member Matt Jones regarding the funding. “The wheels are turning.” A goal of the connector is to improve traffic flow as well as

increase the traffic capacity in that area, said Jones. “It’s been a chicken and the egg between Millworks and the final go Draugelis ahead on the connector,” said Peter Draugelis, president of the Oakley Community Council. “This will hopefully spur development at the Millworks site.”

Mariemont to buy new police cruiser By Lisa Wakeland

The Mariemont Police Department will stick with the Ford Crown Victoria to replace a 7year-old cruiser this year. Police Chief Rick Hines said at last week’s Finance Committee meeting that with state bid pricing the new cruiser will cost taxpayers roughly $23,000, with funds coming from the permanent

improvement fund. Hines said this is the last year the police department will buy this model because Ford is replacing the Crown Victoria with a new model called the Police Interceptor. He added that there will be significant savings by buying a new Crown Victoria because the equipment – light bar, communications console and backseat cage – can be transferred from the old cruiser.

Councilman Jeff Andrews said he would like to see a cost-benefit analysis among different cruiser models as the village looks to replace other police fleet vehicles. Andrews said purchase cost and fuel, as well as maintenance needs during the vehicle’s life, should be included. The police department will keep the 7-year-old cruiser as an unmarked car for officers to take to court or training and Hines said

he expects to get another year of use out of the vehicle. Clerk Paul Tontillo said the village budgeted $22,000 for maintenance of the police vehicles this year. Hines said the newest police cruiser is a 2006 model and he would like to get back to the yearly replacement schedule because of increased maintenance costs.

Oakley woman bringing Celtic music to Tristate By Forrest Sellers

“I saw a need for bringing this type of music into the area.”

Oakley resident Kristen Kirby hopes to bring a little Wales to the Tristate. Kirby is founder and owner of the Reel Roots Folk Music Alliance, a business geared toward bringing Celtic folk musicians to Cincinnati. “I saw a need for bringing this type of music into the area,” said Kirby, 27. Kirby is focusing on international talent and

Kristen Kirby Founder of the Reel Roots Folk Music Alliance hopes to bring in musicians from Scotland, Ireland, England and Wales. “There are people interested in the culture and music, but you don’t have a lot of these bands perform-

ing locally,” she said. “I saw this as a niche.” Kirby has met a number of these musicians through her work as a Web designer. She has also become friends with many of them. “I love the music,” she said. “I have been listening to it since I was 9 years old.” She said her passion for Celtic music also ties into her heritage, which is both Scottish and Irish. Kirby said groups such as the McGing Irish

Dancers, the Riley School of Irish Music and the Cincinnati Caledonian Pipes and Drums Band have encouraged an interest in Irish and Scottish culture. Kirby would like to further this appreciation by providing an opportunity for these musicians to perform in a concert setting. Shows are planned for the fall in both Madisonville and Covington, Ky.

Matre missed the 2010 college baseball season for the Lions due to rehabbing from surgery on his pitching arm last June. Matre was on the professional scout’s radar last spring and figured to be drafted before undergoing the predraft surgery. “I was watching the draft tracker on the web today (Wednesday) and turned off the computer after the 36th round so I could get to practice (for the Steam),’’ he said. “I figured since I hadn’t played in a year I was probably not going to get drafted at this point. A little while later I received a text from (Mount assistant coach) Jeff Newman and he told me I got drafted by the Dodgers. Their local scout, Tom Keefe, then called me and told me that I was now a professional athlete.” He added, “I talked to a couple of scouts with the Dodgers today and they said they had seen me pitch in the past and were excited to have me in their organization. They want me to get back to pitching for a couple of weeks and then we will discuss a contract.”

Tim Kuck turns attention to UC career

2010 Mariemont grad takes 11th at state

By Anthony Amorini

Tim Kuck’s plans to continue his track career at the University of Cincinnati helped ease the 2010 Mariemont graduate’s disappointment about an 11thplace finish at state this spring. Competing in the 800meter run, Kuck turned in an 11th-place time of 1:59.42 during the Division II State Championship finals Saturday, June 5, at Ohio State’s Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium. “It was encouraging that I have UC to look forward to because it was a disappointing end,” Kuck said of state. Kuck turned in a personal best time of 1:58.40 during a fourth-place finish at regionals May 29 to score his state qualification and was hoping to post a new high mark in Columbus, he said. At districts, Kuck won a Division II district championship in the 800 with a time of 2:00.02. “I was hoping to go two seconds faster (than my personal best) at state and break the school record so I was a little disappointed in my finish,” Kuck said. “But


Mariemont’s Tim Kuck, seen here winning a district title in the 800 last spring, captured another district title in the event in 2010 en route to his second state qualification in track. I was still really happy to be there.” Representing Mariemont’s

only state qualifier, Warrior track coach Jeff Timmers was quick to remind Kuck that he

should be proud of his accomplishments and looking forward to running at UC, the coach said. “Tim’s best runs (in the 800) are still ahead of him,” Timmers said of Kuck’s upcoming career at UC. “Finishing in the top 16 in the state is nothing to be ashamed of and he’s still not done. “It was so exciting for me as a coach to see a kid get back to state as a senior and do so well,” Timmers added. Kuck was making his second appearance at state in as many years this spring. Timmers has coached Kuck through eight high school seasons including four for cross country and four for track. Needless to say, the coach and the standout grew quite close during Kuck’s time running at Mariemont, Timmers said. “We’ve been together eight seasons so it was quite an emotional goodbye,” Timmers said. “But he’s staying local so we’ll get to see him run at UC and hopefully we will see him reach all of his goals there.” Kuck’s No. 1 goal looking forward to his UC career

is to make the Bearcats’ 4x800 relay as soon as possible, he said. “I still have to try out, but they had a senior graduate from their 4x800 so I’m hoping to get a spot on that,” Kuck said. “I know that I’ll have four or five more years to run track and that’s something to look forward to.” As for Kuck’s leadership role at Mariemont, Timmers and fellow Mariemont track coach Bruce Dixon were in complete agreement in regards to the senior’s importance to the program, they said. Kuck was a senior captain alongside fellow senior Reed Gerberick this spring. “He’s the best captain I’ve ever had,” Dixon said. “From day one he was out there helping the guys and taking kids under his wing. “He led by example and all the kids followed him,” Dixon added. Timmers echoed Dixon’s sentiment. “Tim was by far one of the best captains I’ve had at Mariemont High School,” Timmers said. Timmers has been with the program since 1999. “I guess we’ll see where he takes it from here.”

Six finalists up for Larosa’s MVP Six outstanding area female high school athletes have been named as finalists for Greater Cincinnati’s premier prep sports’ award for the 2009-2010 school year. The male and female winners of the prestigious LaRosa’s “High School MVP of the Year” Award will be announced at the annual Buddy LaRosa’s Sports Hall of Fame Banquet Sunday, June 27, in ceremonies at the CET studios in Cincinnati. The six finalists for the LaRosa’s High School Female MVP of the Year Award are: • Krissie Brandenburg, senior, Beechwood High School, swimming All-American and four-time Kentucky state champion. • Phylesha Bullard, senior, Walnut Hills High School, McDonald’s basketball All-American nominee also a volleyball star. • Elizabeth Burchenal, senior,

A McDonald’s Basketball AllAmerican nominee, Bullard (16 ppg) scored 1,219 points in her great prep career and became the all-time leading scorer in school history.

This past season she led the Lady Eagles to a 21-4 record and their first-ever district championship and was named FAVC Cardinal Player of the Year for the second time. Additionally, she was named first-team all city, first-team Southwest Ohio district and second-team all-state, and was selected to play in the Cincinnati East-West All-Star game. Bullard is also a two-time firstteam all-conference volleyball player, and competed in track and field. In her scant spare time, Bullard played alto sax in the jazz ensemble in the school band. Bullard will play basketball next season at Syracuse University. Elizabeth Burchenal is one of the best soccer players in the nation, a two-time All-American who helped lead St. Ursula to back-to-back Ohio state championships her sophomore

and junior years. She scored an incredible 37 goals-14 assists her senior year, giving her a school-record 104 goals and 50 assists in her great career. The accolades have been numerous, including this season being named Ohio, Southwest Ohio district and Cincinnati Div. I Player of the Year. She was once again named Sportswoman of the Year by the local Women’s Sports Association, the only honoree to win that award twice. Burchenal was named to ESPN’s girls’ soccer all-decade team and, as a junior, was a finalist for the LaRosa’s MVP of the Year award. This two-time Gatorade Ohio Player of the Year will continue her soccer prowess at the University of North Carolina.

Cincinnati Water Works meets state, federal standards

How many times in a day do you use water? What would you do if you turned on the faucet and nothing came out? At the Greater Cincinnati Water Works, our mission is to provide a plentiful supply of the highest quality drinking water and outstanding services to our customers. Our employees work each and every day to provide you with dependable, high quality water each and every time you need it. We are proud to report that our water met or exceeded all state and federal health standards in 2009, as it always has. To ensure we deliver the highest quality water possible, our water quality experts, engineers and water distribution specialists stay abreast of the latest water industry research and technology and continually look for ways to improve our methods. The Greater Cincinnati Water Works draws its source water from the Ohio River and the Great Miami aquifer near Fairfield. We typically treat about 135 million gallons of water a day and perform more than 600 water quality tests a day throughout the water treatment process. Our Richard Miller Treatment Plant, located on the east side of Cincinnati, treats water from the Ohio River. It is one of only a few water treatment plants in the nation that uses granular-activated carbon with on-site re-activation. Granular-activated carbon is cited by the United States Environmental Protection Agency as one of the best available treat-

What was the best advice your father gave you, and did you follow it? What happened? “The best advice dad ever gave me was when he was teaching me to drive (and yes, I follow it every single time I get in a car): ‘Always anticipate that The Other Guy is going to do something stupid.’ That advice has gotten me out of more situations than I can count.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Thanks for help after accident

I’m writing to express my appreciation to the neighbors on Erie Avenue, near Shaw. I was involved in a motorcycle accident on Tuesday, May 25, involving a dog that jumped out of the drivers windows of a parked truck into my path. I don’t know any of the names of the very kind people who came to my assistance that evening. I do know that two were nurses and their kindness and quick response made a tough night that much easier. Also, thank you to the emergency response from the Cincin-

It’s more like living next to Blue Ash airport and finding out they’re turning it into an International airport ... bigger planes and a 50-times increase in air traffic. What an unfortunate outcome ... if I lived in the affected area, I’d be starting an ‘I will not shop in Anderson’ boycott.” CincinnatiKid70 “I think that it is interesting that even though this part of the Little Miami River Valley (and these specific properties) has been home to mining activities for around 50 years, nearby residents are flipping out about how their property values and quality of life will be negatively impacted

A Fourth of tea Visitors to Hydepark posted these comments to a story about the cincinnati Tea Party agreeing to help organize Hyde Park’s Fourth of July celebration: “Is it surprising that a Hyde Park letter writer would label the Cincy Tea Party ‘racist?’ Not really. Generally it’s the lib extremists that love to label anything positive for America or against their own rad socialist beliefs ‘racist.’ Don’t agree with Obama on everyhting? Then you’re a racist. It’s as simple as that. Looks like the Tea Party has considerable clout and Christine can’t deal with that. Whose really the racist here? ‘No tolerance’ is the Dem

Working to keep Ohio’s roads safe in travel season June is National Safety Month, and organizations across the country will be participating in events to bring attention to critical safety issues that affect us all. Because the summer months are a time of increased travel on our roads and highways as families head out on vacation and other excursions, special attention is being paid this year to safety issues such as using cell phones while driving and watching out for motorcycles. Here in the Senate, my colleagues and I are also concerned about the safety of those traveling on Ohio’s roads, and we recently passed a bill that will help keep them safe for both motorists and public safety personnel. Senate Bill 166 would give firefighters, EMS responders and other emergency workers the ability to report traffic law violations under certain circumstances. The idea for S.B. 166 came about after one of my colleagues, State Sen. Jim Hughes (R- Columbus), learned from some of his

local first responders about the increasing number of traffic violations they encounter while they are responding to Sen. the scene of an Shannon accident or other Jones emergency. This costs police and Community fire personnel Press guest precious time columnist that could be used to provide care to accident victims or get control of a fire. Drivers that do not yield the right-of-way can even cause accidents between cars and fire or EMS vehicles. Under S.B. 166, emergency personnel who witness traffic violations during the course of their duties would report the violator’s license plate number and a general description of the person and vehicle to the local law enforcement agency. If law enforcement can

establish the identity of the vehicle operator, then the license plate number shall establish probable cause for the agency to issue a citation. In cases where the operator of the vehicle cannot be determined, a warning would be issued. Ohio law permits school bus drivers to report cars that refuse to stop when the bus is stationary and has its lights and stop sign activated. S.B. 166 would extend this authority to safety personnel, helping to raise awareness of the importance of yielding to emergency vehicles when they are responding to an accident or other emergency and encourage drivers to take appropriate steps to keep our roads safe. S.B. 166 was passed by the Senate last month and is under consideration in the House Public Safety and Homeland Security Committee. Contact State Sen.

Nearly 150 names of local residents who served in the armed forces during World War II are listed on the honor roll display recreated by local artist Tim Fening and hosted by Payton Coates, 14.

This year marks the 65th anniversary of the end of World War II and an era the Terrace Park Historical Society recalled during a public program on the Village Green following the community’s Memorial Day commemoration. Display tables featured photos and artifacts from 19391945 that have been culled from the organization’s archives. Speakers offered details and answered questions on what it was like to live in Terrace Park during this time. The event was organized by Elaine Fening, program chair.


David Strong West’s memories of the era were shared by his daughter, Mary Hyer, at a display that featured oral histories and toys from the 40s.

John Fening tells Deborah Rogowski about the Japanese rifle his grandfather was given after World War II.




Louise Vilardo Ehein of Naples, Fla., returned to her hometown Memorial Day and checked-out a photo display that evoked childhood memories.


Alli Howe, 14, oversaw a display that featured newspaper clippings, photographs, letters and other memorabilia about local World War II servicemen.

Al & Tipper, you really surprised us Center in Manhattan speaks of the Gores in USA Today, “Their relationship was probably having troubles over time, and they were less invested in each other and less invested in making this relationship work.” Analyst Dr. James Hollis says, “Real relationship springs from a conscious desire to share the journey with another, to grow nearer the mystery of life through the bridges of conversation, sexuality and compassion.” A couple, having come into existence through choice, can only stay in existence by consciously and unconsciously making that choice over and over again. In the prenuptial paperwork of the Catholic Church, it says to those intending marriage: “Marriage is a lifelong task of choosing each other.” The lessons for us from

gal Spirituality,” “This is a serious process which requires, some say, nine to 14 years, but which is in any case a highly complicated and lifelong task never really complete. Each couple must by trial and error discover its own unrepeatable shape. The ‘being’ of a couple is not fixed but living and changing, more like a person than a piece of pottery. It will be born and grow, or languish and die.” Despite the fact that being a couple is such a natural and universal tendency, its growth and success depends on the continued willingness and commitment to be in relation. Will and choice prove to be more important than romance and feeling. Both members of a couple must act in the preservation of their relationship. Psychiatrist Dennis Lin of the Beth Israel Medical


“I’m just stunned!” ‘That was the most common adjective used when the news said Al and Tipper Gore were separating. To both friends and foes they seemed a solidly married couple. This column is neither to condemn nor praise them. Such personal decisions carry too many private and unknown factors for us to judge. What we do need to acknowledge are the questions such surprising reverses bring to our minds about ourselves. Questions such as: If their marriage of 40 years ran out of fuel, can mine? If there was no secret third party for either of them, then how could it happen after sharing so much of life together? Can love last? We’re living longer, but is love dying sooner? Can’t a couple’s love grow stronger over the years and not more fragile? The concept of marrying, being a couple, has been quite a standard social unit throughout history. It’s the principal way the great majority of people find pleasure, cope with loneliness, and engage the deep forces of body and soul. A couple begins not with the proverbial “falling in love.” A couple begins at that usually undeterminable time when both are first aware of being chosen by the other. The couple then begins to create and form its personal relationship. As Mary Anne McPherson Oliver writes in “Conju-

No bones about it – dads love good ribs peas from our garden. And since Father’s Day is almost here, I wanted to share a favorite ribs recipe that I’ll be making for the dads in our family. Happy Dad’s Day to all of our Community Press and Recorder dads!

Rita’s grilled baby back ribs

Sprinkle the ribs with the spice rub up to a day ahead. This recipe will serve eight people. You may have leftover rub so store it in the refrigerator for up to a month.

Mix together:

3 tablespoons garlic powder 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon chili powder

“… after my first appointment I had more range of motion in my neck and more relief from pain than I did after getting any of my epidurals.” “15 years ago I was in a car accident that left me with severe neck trauma … the best massage I ever received! … I am a normal functioning adult living in a pain free world.” “Bill not only gives an amazing massage, he also feels that the body is able to heal when given the necessary care often needed !!!”

Tusculum Therapeutic Massage Please make appointments online at


1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon cumin 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper 1 teaspoon Spanish smoked paprika or regular paprika 1 teaspoon allspice


6 to 7 pounds meaty baby back pork ribs, cut into 6 to 7 rib slabs. Sprinkle 1 generous teaspoon of rub on each side of each slab. Put on baking sheet; cover with foil and refrigerate at least two hours or up to one day.

To grill ribs:

Prepare grill with medium heat. Grill ribs until tender and cooked, turning occasionally. Then brush each side generously with barbeque sauce. Continue grilling until sauce forms a sticky coating, about three minutes per side.

Carol Vanover’s sparkling punch

Carol, an Indiana reader, as some of you know, is my “oldest and bestest” friend. She is always trying new

recipes with a healthy twist. She served this at a party and everyone loved it. “Not too sweet, very refreshing and good with a meal,” she said. Carol said it looked pretty, too. Adapted from one she found online. Two 750 ml. bottles sparkling apple cider, chilled 1 liter carbonated water (Carol used seltzer), chilled 3 large oranges, thinly sliced 2 lemons, thinly sliced 6 oz. frozen lemonade concentrate, thawed 1 tablespoon sugar Ice: See Carol’s tip Put lemon and oranges in large punch bowl. Pour in thawed lemonade. Gently stir in seltzer water and sparkling cider. Add sugar to taste and add ice. Tip: Fill a 4- to 6-cup freezable container with water and freeze. Or use ice cubes. Carol said this would look nice in a pitcher, as well.
