Speeding on Settle Members of the Mariemont Safety Committee said there is still a speeding problem on Settle Road despite the addition of a traffic island that forces vehicles to stop. Mayor Dan Policastro suggested the village place two stop signs halfway

down Settle Road to slow down drivers. Village Engineer Chris Ertel said stop signs are not supposed to be used to control speed, but the village could install signs if there was a crosswalk or similar use.

By Lisa Wakeland To slow speeding vehicles on Homewood Road, the Mariemont Safety Committee decided to install two stop signs. Residents on Homewood Road petitioned council to install speed bumps because the street, near the village’s boundary with Fairfax, is often used as a cut-through for drivers. Councilman and Safety Committee Chairman Dennis Wolter said speed bumps or speed humps would cost between $1,500 and $3,500 to install, respectively, plus the cost of maintenance. He added that either measure could be problematic for emergency vehicles and snow plows. Councilman and committee member Andy Black said he was concerned that placing speed humps on Homewood Road would push speeding drivers onto other streets and create a cascade of residents asking for similar traffic calming measures. Instead of speed humps, the committee decided to install two stop signs on Homewood Road at the intersection with Hawthorne Avenue. If that does not decrease the number of speeding vehicles the committee suggested an increased police presence and then speed humps as a last resort. Councilman and committee member Joe Miller said he does not anticipate the village having to install speed humps.


The Mariemont Safety Committee recommended installing two more stop signs on Homewood Road to decrease the speed of vehicles that cut through the street.

Residents dispute Oakley designation By Forrest Sellers

Is a portion of East Hyde Park in Hyde Park or in Oakley? Residents in East Hyde Park are questioning why the Multiple Listing Service, which provides real estate listings and homes for sale, has begun listing their homes in Oakley instead of Hyde Park. A number of these residents plan to speak with the Oakley Community Council at its Tuesday, Aug. 3, meeting. According to Hyde Park resident Terry Eschmeyer the real estate listing change was made in the fall of 2009. However, Eschmeyer said based on research of maps as far back as the early 1900s, the “impacted area” has always been part of Hyde Park. The area includes property along Erie Avenue between Tarpis and

Pinehurst avenues, the Erie and Saybrook avenues intersection and the Deupree House, 3939 Erie Ave. “Our goal is to resolve this in a timely manner and return the area to Hyde Park as it always has been,” said Eschmeyer. Hyde Park resident Ward Smith said the primary concern is the houses are not visible on the Mul-

tiple Listing Service the way they have been in the past. Smith said Realtors have told them this will have a negative impact on property values. Additionally, Smith said the Multiple Listing Service change will make it more difficult for those affected to sell their homes. The Hamilton County Auditor’s office, though, considers the impacted area to be in Hyde Park. “A downward trend in property values while property taxes are on the rise is a concern,” said Smith. According to Smith, the information used to designate property locations by the Multiple Listing Service is sourced from community council boundary maps managed by the Cincinnati City Planning Department, via the Cincinnati Area Geographical Information System. Eschmeyer said 494 people have signed a petition wanting the impacted area represented by the

If you go

Residents concerned about a boundary designation between Hyde Park and Oakley plan to speak at an upcoming Oakley Community Council meeting. The meeting will be 7 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 3, at the Oakley Recreation Center, 3882 Paxton Ave. Hyde Park Neighborhood Council, with the goal of returning the area to Hyde Park on the community council boundary map. Smith said the Hyde Park Neighborhood Council has supported these efforts. He said these concerns have also been presented to the Cincinnati City Planning Department, but the matter has not yet been resolved. Residents in the impacted area are looking to get feedback from the Oakley Community Council at its upcoming meeting.

Madisonville Road, and said he will need to completely close nearby West Street from Monday, Sept. 27, to the end of the year. One lane of West Street would be closed from Jan. 1 to Sept. 30, 2011, the agreement said. Resident Dan Spinnenweber, who owns the Mariemont Inn and the Strand business complex, said he’s concerned the construction will impact nearby businesses. “If Mariemont becomes an area that is difficult to get in and get out the lunch business will go away and the rest will follow,” he said. “That’s the risk that we’re taking ... because sure, you’ll get your buildings up, but you’re going to have an empty business community.” Spinnenweber said he is also concerned that the agreement to close West Street sets a precedence for future construction projects such as the school district’s planned renovations to Mariemont Elementary School in late 2011. “Closing West Street from Madisonville (Road) to


Dan Spinnenweber – a Mariemont resident who owns the Strand, Mariemont Inn and other commercial properties in the village – said he’s concerned that construction and road closures could hurt businesses such as Dilly Deli, seen here.

Resident Dan Spinnenweber, who owns the Mariemont Inn and the Strand business complex, said he’s concerned the construction will impact nearby businesses. Wooster Pike will kill us,” he said. “If it continues to be congested for two years we

won’t have a downtown business community because people will say that this is to difficult to get to.”

Greiwe said there will be minimal disruption to nearby businesses and that the village will see some economic benefit from construction workers being in Mariemont for one year. He said crews often ate lunch at local restaurants while building the Jordan Park condominiums on Miami Road.

Terrace Park has new zoning code By Lisa Wakeland

Terrace Park residents will soon have to comply with new zoning regulations. Council unanimously approved the updated zoning code at a recent meeting and the changes will take effect Aug. 7. Changes from the 2007 update include a greater flexibility for front-yard setbacks, permitted front-yard structures, a new zoning district and parking limits for commercial vehicles. “It’s the best document that we have right now, but by no means is it a perfect document,” Councilman Tom Tepe said.

He added that council will be receptive to suggestions for other changes. Building Cole inspector Bill Fiedler said he has received multiple phone calls from homeowners, Realtors and appraisers interested in the new zoning code. Fiedler said previously that he likes the new setback standards and he said it will help establish variety on village streets. Councilman Lee Cole, who has been working on the update for nearly a year, said the village has not

Major changes

• Parking: The updated zoning code permits loading and unloading of commercial or recreational vehicles, but limits the time that type of vehicle can be parked on a street to 48 hours. • Setbacks: The code places the front yard setback to a minimum of 30 feet, with an increased setback for every foot a building exceeds above 25 feet. • Front yard structures: The updated code restricts front yard structures, such as a flagpole, to a one-square-foot footprint. • New district: The code now includes a recreation and institution district for areas like the elementary school, swimming pool and fields. It also covers places of worship and is less restrictive with signage and fencing. • Dry wells: These gravel beds geared toward helping with drainage problems are permitted in the code update and have not been addressed before. received much feedback on the code changes. He said parking restrictions for village streets are one of the biggest changes to the zoning code.

Council is discussing a separate ordinance outside the zoning code to restrict on-street parking of commercial or recreational vehicles on all village streets.

A Mariemont resident suggested a fenced dog area for the park. Council has made improvements to the park in the past couple years.

Dog park for Mariemont? By Lisa Wakeland

Councilwoman Kim Sullivan said the Public Works and Services Committee discussed the potential for a Mariemont dog park at a recent committee meeting. “We decided to put it in the long-range planning for the village,” she said, noting that more research and discussion is needed. “I don’t know if Mariemont is the right place for a dog park. There are other great ones in the area.” Both Wags Park in New-

Renner said a dog park would be a good use of the space without spending too

much money on new play equipment or other park amenities and sees it as a catalyst to revitalize the area. Sullivan, who lives in the historic district, disagrees that it would spark

improvements to that area because there are a lot of very serious issues facing that area of the village. “We need to bring the park up to speed and I don’t see a dog park going that direction,” she said.

“We need a park for children to play and we’re trying to make it family-friendly.” In the past couple years, the village has or plans to install a shelter, slide, skate park and outdoor grills at Ann Buntin Becker Park.

Youngsters participating in a recent art camp in Madisonville left their mark. Literally. Participants in a morningstART art camp at the Madisonville Arts Center painted a piano which will be on display at the front of the center, 5021 Whetsel Ave. Not only will the piano be on display, but anyone who would like to can play it as well. The students came up with the designs for the piano and then painted them. “The entire conceptual idea of using dance and music was their idea,” said camp director Abbey Gauger, 18, of Mount Lookout. One side of the piano is painted in bright colors, graffiti and hip hop images. The other side is in more subdued colors and has a ballet theme. A guitar image adorns the keyboard. “I think it’s nice people will see the work we did,” said Lindsay Kaminer, 10, of Fairfax. Kaminer came up with the idea to paint a stereo image on the piano bench. Debbie Hill, executive director of the center, said the piano will be located outdoors for six weeks and then relocated inside the center’s gallery on a permanent basis. Hill said the Fine Arts Fund donated pianos to several community arts centers throughout the region. These pianos were donated to the centers in conjunction with an international “Play Me, I’m Yours” project by artist Luke Jerram in which upright pianos are placed throughout communities to encourage an interest in playing.

Students reach out to school in South India

Little Flower Montessori in Perumalmalai, South India, is soon to receive several gifts from the children of Mercy Montessori. Founded in July of 2009 by Jesuit priest Ama Samy, Little Flower serves about 80 pre-school children six days a week. The school was built and financed completely by donations and is managed by the Bodhi Zendo Trust. In South India, Montessori schooling is usually available only to the wealthy. Little Flower Montessori fills a huge need by offering education, meals and hope for a better future to children living in staggering poverty. “Most people are coolie workers in the farmlands in the area. We started a Montessori school for the pre-school children in the biggest of the three (local) villages, Perumalmalai,” said Father Samy, S.J.

“About a thousand families live there. Many of them live below the poverty line. They are the poorest of the poor.” This Montessori pre-school provides underprivileged children with the necessary skills and habits for a successful schooling career. “Until now, children of poor families don’t have this chance at all,” said Samy. During the evening hours, the center offers activities for older, school-age children from Perumalmalai who are poor in studies, dropouts and others in need of support. Mercy Montessori faculty member Phyllis Schomaker has attended workshops given by Father Samy. Schomaker and her co-teacher, Melissa Himmelbauer of Anderson Township, proposed this service project to their first-, second- and

Here, Mercy students lie on a quilt they made that they will give to Little Flower. third-level students. The children raised money to be donated to Little Flower Montessori and created a quilt and accompanying notes of friendship for its students. “Children are so receptive,” says Schomaker. “Our Mercy students were eager to help by raising money

and sewing. The children wanted to do something to help.” Each student sewed a square using the school colors, stitched the individual squares together and were involved in the finishing process. With the initial assistance of staff member and Mercy alumni parent Angie Pleatman of Oakley,

the young students became skilled in quilt-making. In between academic lessons, the Mercy Montessori children received help with their hands-on service project from parent volunteers. The collection of gifts will be received by the students in Perumalmalai this fall.

Seven Hills teacher begins WWI seminar June 28 marks the date in 1914 that set in motion World War I, also known as the Great War. At the University of Kansas, 14 middle and secondary school teachers from across the country, including English teacher Meredith L Brown of the Seven Hills School, began a five-week summer seminar on “America and the Great War” June 27. Funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities, the seminar is directed by Janet Sharistanian, associate professor of English, and Ted Wilson, professor of history. KU’s Hall Center for the Humanities administers the grant.

“The profound effect of the Great War on world history has long been understood, but its intersection with American history has been overshadowed by interest in World War II,” said Sharistanian. “Our seminar will examine how the war intersected with large-scale political, military, social and cultural developments and, in turn, influenced America’s transition into the modern period,” she said. The participating teachers will draw on literature, history and visual artifacts to examine ways in which the Great War affected the United States; the nature of

American participation in the war; and how Americans represented, remembered and memorialized the war following its end in November 1918. In addition to reading literature, histories and other documents, the teachers will work with materials at KU’s Spencer Museum of Art and Spencer Research Library. Field trips to the National World War I Museum in Kansas City, Mo., and the Command and General Staff College at Fort Leavenworth are included. The seminar ends July 30. Each teacher will research a primary document related to the

war available through KU’s libraries and museums. Documents may include propaganda posters, letters home from American soldiers, a diary of a troop-ship doctor, a first-person memoir published by a local press or pamphlets directed at housewives by the federal government. “The Great War shattered a century of relative peace, raising profound questions about human nature, politics and progress that we are still dealing with,” said Wilson said. “Communism, Nazism, the second world war, the Holocaust, the Cold War, NATO and the U.N. were only possible in its after-

math,” he said. On June 28, 1914, in Sarajevo, the heir to the Austro-Hungarian empire, Archduke Francis Ferdinand and his wife, Sophia, were shot and killed by a Serbian terrorist as the royal couple reviewed troops in the city. By August 1914, power struggles among empires in Europe had escalated to war. The United States entered the war in April 1917. Peace negotiations began Nov. 11, 1918, Armistice Day. The war formally ended June 28, 1919, with the signing of the Treaty of Versailles by Germany and the Allied nations.

Summit’s new football coach

The Summit Country Day School re-introduced Dan Starkey to The Summit football community Monday, July 19, as the head football coach. Starkey served as the defensive coordinator for the Silver Knights in 2009. He now replaces Ken Minor, who recently accepted the head coaching position at his alma mater Wilmington College. Starkey is in his 34th year of coaching football. Prior to his role at The Summit, he was the head football coach at Roger Bacon High School from 1997-2006, where he amassed a 64-40 record, compiled four playoff appearances, and won four GCL championships. Starkey originally considered coaching at Mount St. Joseph’s College before settling in to coach with Minor. “To replace a coach like Ken Minor and take over a program at a school like The Summit will be both exciting and challenging for Coach Starkey,” said Greg Dennis, Athletic Director. “We are proud of this hire and look forward to the 2010-11 football season.”

Matre signs with Dodgers

College of Mount St. Joseph right-hander Steve Matre, a Purcell Marian High School graduate, drafted last month in the amateur baseball draft by the Los Angeles Dodgers, signed his professional contract at the Mount, in front of family, coaches and friends. Matre, a 6-foot-2, 185pound pitcher, who was chosen in the 39th round, is currently pitching for the Cincinnati Steam summer baseball team. In 10 games pitched, Matre has tossed 10 innings, allowed eight hits and one run (one earned), for a 0.90 ERA. He has 12 strikeouts and one walk this season in summer league play. Steve, the son of Maureen and John Matre, will head to the Arizona League (Rookie) Dodgers. Matre was scouted and signed by Los Angeles Dodgers scout Tom Keefe.

Golfers play 100 holes to help kids Cincinnati Golfers for Charity (CGC) hit the links Friday, June 4, for their third annual 100-hole golf challenge with the mission to raise money for afflicted children in the Greater Cincinnati community. The event was at The Vineyard golf course in Anderson Township. A total of 36 golfers participated in the event, successfully surpassing their goal to raise $100,000 to benefit local children. In fact, CGC raised about $115,000 to benefit local children. Proceeds will be divided to benefit the Makea-Wish Foundation and Cancer Free Kids. Several of this year’s Make-A-Wish recipients and representatives of Cancer Free Kids were on hand to cheer on the golfers. “The 100-hole challenge has enabled us to personally reach out and help children battling illness in our own community while doing something we all love,” said Mike Stagnaro, spokesperson for the Cincinnati Golfers for Charity. “Members of the CGG have been overwhelmed by the positive response and support we have received in previous years. We’re asking the community to open their hearts again to help us combat childhood cancer

The CGC was founded by five St. Xavier High School friends who had participated in a 100 Golf Challenge event that had been hosted by the Make-A-Wish Foundation. When the Make-A-Wish Foundation Event decided to end their event, the friends decided to enlist the help of a couple dozen of their mutual friends to create a new charity of their own named CGC. Each year, the CGC sets out to play 100 holes of golf in one day! Ahead of the event, the members raise as many dollars as they can from friends, relatives, peers, and anyone willing to donate.

Athletic Director Dick Snyder said, “Alex Hill is a tremendous soccer and basketball athlete. In soccer his defensive ability to shut down the other team’s best player helped lead his team to the state Final Four. “In basketball he again showed his defensive ability leading Seven Hills to Miami Valley Conference and sectional championships. For soccer he was a captain, scholar athlete, MVC First Team, Enquirer Honorable Mention, All-District First Team, and a member of the District All-Star team. “In basketball he was a captain and scholar athlete. He is a quiet leader who is always willing to do small things to help a good team become a great one. It’s not easy having your father as coach but this student always handled it with patience and dignity. This speaks to his outstanding character. He will be attending the University of Richmond in the fall. “Kyle Neu is a three-sport athlete who goes from one season to the next enjoying every minute of being on a

team and making that team better. Last year he was the Elinor Mosher Award winner for sportsmanship. He plays soccer, basketball and baseball, and he has been an important part of three great teams this year. “A defender in soccer where he may have surprised many with his strength and power. In basketball his improvement made a great team even better. However, it is in baseball that he really shines, leading the team in most pitching and offensive categories. In soccer and basketball he was a scholar athlete. “In baseball he was a captain, the Most Valuable Player, First Team AllLeague and Player of the Year. Next year he will be attending Centre College where he will play baseball. “Sarah Evans is a magnificent athlete with an impressive resume. As one of her coaches put it, ‘She has the heart of an athlete.’ She was a scholar athlete for both volleyball and basketball. “In volleyball, she was the team’s Most Valuable Player, All-League Player of the Year and First Team, Enquirer First Team and All-City First Team. In basketball she was the team’s Most Valuable Player, First Team All-League, Enquirer First Team, All-District Player of the Year, District 16 First Team and All-Star, and AllState Third Team. “She enjoys the competition, having her best games against the best

teams, and she has a remarkable level of concentration. She will be attending the University of Texas next year.” The Elinor Scherr Mosher Award was awarded to junior Anne Mapes of Mariemont. The award goes to a sophomore or junior who has consistently demonstrated good sportsmanship and school spirit while excelling in athletics. Dick Snyder said, “A three-sport athlete, Anne’s coaches describe her as a joy to coach, a quiet leader with a determined mindset, and a wonderful example of sportsmanship. She is someone with utmost respect for her teammates, opponents and officials and is someone who gives her all to win but who never compromises her high standards of integrity and honesty.” Other major athletic honors were the 2009-10 Ohio Scholar-Athlete Awards, which were presented to seniors Sarah Kloepper of Loveland and Bryan Romaine of Maineville, and the 2009-10 Archie Griffin Sportsmanship Awards, which were presented to seniors Heidi Garrett of Amberley and Brandon Williams of Madisonville and eighth graders Devin Garrett of Amberley and Kathryn Hickenlooper of Anderson Township.

Tips to protect your skin during hotter months The heat of summer is officially here, and with summer vacation it means more time outdoors for your kids. It also means protecting yourself and your family from getting sick in the heat. Before you go outside it’s important to protect yourself from the sun, even if you have a darker complexion. Sun damage is responsible for most skin cancers, not to mention most of the age related changes (like wrinkles and dark spots) we see in our skin. The sun’s rays are at their strongest from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., so whenever possible stay indoors

during those hours. If you must be outside wear protective clothing (wide brimmed hats, sleeved shirts), sunglasses with Dr. Elizabeth UV protection Beiter and sunscreen.

Is the smog threatening your health? It is smog season again. This year, the Ohio-Kentucky-Indiana Regional Council of Governments (OKI) is raising awareness about the health risks associated with smog and air pollution. The goal if this information campaign is to get residents to take action against air pollution in the Greater Cincinnati region. “Smog is not only an environmental issue, it’s also a health concern,” said OKI board president and Campbell County Judge Executive Steve Pendery. “Because many people are unaware of smog’s health implications, they do nothing to protect themselves.” Exposure to smog can limit the ability to breathe, reduce lung function and irritate respiratory systems. Smog may aggravate chronic lung diseases such as emphysema and bronchitis. Studies have shown that exposure to air pollution may reduce the immune system’s ability to fight off bacterial infections in the respiratory system. Air pollution has even been linked to appendicitis and ear infections. Smog is a pollutant that affects everyone. Those particularly atrisk include children, adults who are active outdoors, people with respiratory diseases and the elderly. It is important for sensitive groups to know if a smog alert is in effect. Smog alerts are issued when there is a high level of ozone or particle pollution making the air unhealthy. When a Smog Alert is in effect, sensitive groups should avoid outdoor activity. Others should limit outdoor exertion and plan outdoor events when the pollution levels are lower, like in the mornings or evenings. To know if a smog alert has been issued, listen or watch local news, or call 800-621SMOG to receive smog alerts by email or fax.

While limiting time outdoors can help protect wellbeing from the negative impact of smog, the best way to ensure a healthy life is to Callie do your share Holtegel for cleaner air. the fight Community Joining against smog is Press Guest the ultimate Columnist health protection from air pollution and the greatest contribution to the current state of air in the Tristate. The American Lung Association released their annual report card for 2010 on Air Quality in cities in the United States. Cincinnati was ranked as the 9th most polluted city by year-round particle pollution and 18th most polluted by ozone. This ranking illustrates the severity of air pollution in the OKI region and the necessity for individuals to make positive contributions to air quality. Doing your share is something that can be simple and easy. Individuals can reduce smog by riding a bike, refueling after 8 p.m., conserving electricity, carpooling, taking the bus and eliminating unnecessary vehicle trips. “How you deal with smog on a daily basis matters. Changing your daily habits could change your life,” said OKI Executive Director Mark Policinski, “In fact, it may save your life.” These potentially serious and harmful effects illustrate the importance of knowledge and understanding smog levels. For more information and additional tips to reduce air pollution, visit or call 800-621-SMOG. Callie Holtegel is an OKI communications intern.

SPF 15. “Waterproof” sunscreen means that the protection will last for about an hour in the water, so be sure to re-apply after your fun in the water. And don’t forget to cover all sun exposed areas, including your ears and the top of your head if you don’t have much hair. Even on a cloudy day sun protection is important because the harmful UV rays can penetrate the clouds. If you do get sunburned there are some things to be aware of. If your pain is severe or you have blistering of the skin or

symptoms like headache, nausea or vomiting or fainting, go to the emergency department.

CH@TROOM Last week’s question:

Should Congress extend unemployment benefits? Why or why not? For how long? “We have been paying people not to work for much longer than unemployment was ever intended to cover. How about paying them the same amount but requiring that they do something productive for the public good? “Examples might include physical labor in parks, fixing potholes, cutting weeds, picking up litter, painting out graffiti, if they are able. For those who can’t do physical labor, how about routine basic administrative work for cities and states, things like reviewing backlogged parking and traffic tickets, hunting for deadbeat child support parents, mechanizing police files?” F.S.D. “We need to support our friends, neighbors and family members that are unemployed due to the economic woes of the United States over the past couple of years. ‘We’ also includes Congress that needs to provide ‘unemployment compensation’ to people who have worked all their lives, paid taxes and now cannot find a job. “On an individual basis, invite an unemployed person to dinner, take them some groceries, pass on job news when you have and make a call today to someone who needs their spirits raised who look for a job every day.” E.E.C. “Unemployment benefits should not be extended because, like any government benefit, it will produce what it ‘buys’ – unemployment. “In other words, if you pay people not the work, then that is what they will do. Bear in mind, I favor INITIAL unemployment benefits for a short period of time. I opposed the EXTENSION of such benefits for long periods of time. “In any event, if the extension is approved, it MUST be paid for. We can’t keep running up our national ‘credit card.’ If the Dems must have this, they need to take it from the stimulus funds. T.H. “Unemployment benefits are currently, I think, 26 weeks. I believe that in some states, there are provisions to extend this by an additional 13 weeks. “There is little doubt that we are in a frightening period of time when jobs, especially good jobs, are scarce, and unemployment is over 10 percent. “Many of those people who are out of work have lost their employment through no fault of their own, even though there certainly are some who are just too

lazy to work, or who have lost their jobs because of their behavior. I believe that the majority of the unemployed would be grateful to find work that would help them pay their living expenses; and I believe that these employment opportunities are too scarce. “As much as I dislike the idea of ‘welfare,’ I think we have little choice but to make a reasonable extension to benefits, even though our government expenditures are already strained. Not an easy question.” Bill B. “Extend the benefits only for as long as it takes to put together a jobs program – something similar to the WPA – and move with all haste on his. Extended unemployment takes a psychological toll as well as an economic one. So many skilled, talented people have nothing to do – we need to find a way to put their skills and talents to work so they can once again be contributors to the community. And they need to work to keep their skills up-do-date so they will be employable.” J.S.B. “Facetiously: Why don’t we just turn everything over to the government and let them distribute back to us what they want. This way we would have full government employment and no unemployment. “I think, we in the individual work force, would love to be employed by the government union and receive not only their salaries, but their retirement packages. “I wonder what percent of all unemployed government employees compares to the actual market place unemployment – I bet not close to the 10 percent or actual 16-17 percent. D.J. “It is unfortunate that many people are unemployed and have been for more than one year. Just the same, does our government have the money to extend unemployment benefits? If so, for how long? And will there be enough money for those whose benefits have not yet expired? “Neither the U.S. nor the taxpayers have a money tree. This situation demonstrates vividly how President Obama’s stimulus and recovery acts, plus the auto industry and banking bail-outs, have failed to address America’s No. 1 economic problem, all the while he focuses on health care, cap and trade, Wall Street, etc. “When will he get around to the foreclosure and unemployment crises, in his second term? We can’t extend unemployment bene-

“Of course unemployment benefits should be extended, forever! “Most of those currently unemployed are not loafers. They were employed a couple of years ago and have got caught in a financial crisis that we all contributed to by borrowing too much either personally or through the government. It is largely a 'crap shoot' that decided who got laid off, and those of us lucky enough to still have a job should be willing to support the unlucky losers. “Besides, all that unemployment money will get spent on essentials, creating demand and speeding recovery. It is one of the best ways to help everyone.” D.R. “Hmmmm? Does it matter that we are adding another $34 billion to our debt load when the debt is already $14 trillion? Not really. This only increases our debt by a 1/4 percent. We are in so deep at this point that $34 billion is a very small number. “How is that possible? If passed, it will be a weight on the dollar. Passage of this bill will be reflected in the capital markets. “If enacted it will have some short-term beneficial impacts. It will keep consumption going for a bit longer. More iPhones will be bought, the number of defaults will be a bit less, there will be some monthly data released that will hide some of the weakness. “The president’s fiscal commission will release its results on Dec. 1, the day after the extension of benefits will expire and three weeks after the election. “There is no way this temporary extension will be extended at that point. Either we hit a wall then or we hit a wall now. “If this bill is not passed it will accelerate the slowdown that now seems to be coming at a frightening speed. By the end of July the number of unemployed grows to 3.2 million These are big numbers. “This will show up on WalMart’s sales. It will show up everywhere. Consumption will drop. Landlords will not get paid. Confidence will drop. Markets will drop. Federal and state revenues will drop. Deficits will rise. Debt will rise. These things will happen sooner vs. later.

Class named in honor of Holocaust survivors By Amanda Hopkins

Roma Kaltman survived the Holocaust and she has spent much of her life sharing her story and educating others on the history and tragedy of the many lives lost in ghettos and concentration camps. “It’s very important (future generations) know a sad part of our history,” Kaltman said. In 1939 when Kaltman was only 13 years old, the Germans invaded her hometown of Lodz, Poland, turning it into a large ghetto with several hundreds of thousands of Jewish people living in a small area of the city. Kaltman, who now lives in Kennedy Heights, said she worked making boxes for ammunition for the German soldiers. “If not, we didn’t get soup,” Kaltman said. It was in the ghetto in Lodz where Kaltman met her future husband, Sam Kaltman. She said they would spend summer days sitting in the courtyard together. The two were separated when she was sent to the concentration camps at Auschwitz and Stutthoff and Sam went to Auschwitz and Dachau. Roma Kaltman survived along with her sister and a friend when they escaped a death march in 1945 towards the end of World War II. Sam Kaltman was able to reach Roma through a letter and the two married in 1949. They came to Cincinnati in 1950 and along with other survivors became part of a group called Survivors of Nazism that formed in

Both continued to share their stories of survival and Roma Kaltman still serves on the Board of Directors at the Center for Holocaust and Humanity Education in Sycamore Township, where she was one of the founding members when the center opened in 2000. Sam Kaltman died in 1990. Sandy Kaltman and her husband, John Isidor, of Amberley Village, are renaming the center’s Holocaust Studies for Educators Summer Institute in honor of Sandy Kaltman’s parents. “It’s a great vector for spreading the word further,” Sandy Kaltman said. “It seemed like the most important thing we are doing.” Isidor said carrying on the course, which is for teachers to learn how to teach a curriculum on the Holocaust to their students, is good for people to understand what happened. “The truth of what transpired carries on,” Isidor said.

Teaching the next generation

Center for Holocaust and Humanity Education in Sycamore Township hosts a Educators Summer Institute where teachers learn how to teach a curriculum on the Holocaust to their students. The class is being renamed in honor of local survivors Roma and Sam Kaltman. The Kaltmans’ daughter, Sandy Kaltman, and her husband, John Isidor, who were the leaders in renaming the course in honor of Sandy’s parents, said the class is a good way to pass history of the Holocaust to future generations. “The truth of what transpired carries on,” Isidor said.

Stacey Meyer, center, talks with 3- to 6-year-old kids during a session for Fernside at Blue Ash Presbyterian Church. Meyer is a volunteer with the non-profit organization that helps kids cope with the death of a loved one.

Fernside helps grieving kids Gannett News Service Stacey Meyer was 9 years old when her mother took her own life. “I was in the fourth grade, and it was hard,” says Meyer, who is 32 and lives in Mount Lookout. “No one understands when you’re that young and your mom dies. No one gets it. Kids made fun of me. It was like a joke.” She and her only sibling, a sister who is a year and a half younger, began attending sessions at Fernside, a non-profit center for grieving children that Rachel and Paul Burrell had opened in a Hyde Park church a few years earlier, in fall 1986. At the time, it was only the second such center in the country. For the next several years, Fernside was the safe place where Meyer could “talk about the death of my mom, and talk about death in general.” It was the place where she felt reassured that whatever emotion she felt about death – anger, sadness, frustration or fear – was normal. “Life changes after a death, but your life is not over,” she says. “Fernside guided me through that transition. “I felt like Fernside made me OK,

like I would have been crazy without it. It essentially gave me my life back.” Which is why, as a young adult, Meyer wasted no time in giving back to Fernside. After graduating 10th in her class from Princeton High School in 1996 and enrolling at the University of Cincinnati, Meyer became a Fernside volunteer. As a group facilitator, she worked with children of various ages. “The kids really like the idea that I went to Fernside when my mom died,” she says. “It’s a good, positive connection for them.” Her efforts were interrupted a couple of times; first when she moved to Switzerland after college to be an au pair, and again when she spent two years in Germany on Fulbright scholarships, teaching English as a second language and interning for a biotech company. She returned home six years ago, took a job with Heidelberg Distributing – she’s now fine wine manager – and connected again with Fernside. Since then she has been working with preschool- and kindergarten-age children who have lost a parent or grandparent. Their grief often is expressed in art-

work, through games that encourage discussion, or when sitting in the sharing circle, where Meyer might ask: Who died in your family? What do you want to tell us about that? “She gives them the space and time to share their thoughts, and she listens to what they have to say,” says Mary McCutchen, Fernside’s volunteer coordinator. “That’s very important. Because what children need to know is that they’re listened to, they’re understood, and somebody cares about them.” Meyer has been part of the growth of Fernside, which is now based in Blue Ash and is an affiliate of Hospice of Cincinnati. She assists with fundraising and twice has volunteered at the agency’s teen retreat. Preschoolers don’t provide feedback to volunteers the way teens do. But that’s OK, Meyer says. She knows she’s making a difference. Sometimes it’s a simple thing, such as a child holding her hand, or asking to sit in her lap. Sometimes it’s a child tugging on her shirt and whispering in her ear, “I need to tell you something.” And Stacey Meyer is listening.

Mow, water your way to a happier summer lawn The summer season can be a very trying time for homeowners and their lawns. So, here are a few general tips to help keep your lawn looking its best this summer. 1) Keep mowing on a regular basis. Never remove more than 1⁄3 of the height of the grass blades each time you mow. 2) Mow at a higher mowing height. Keep your mowing height at least 21⁄2 to 31⁄2 inches. Longer grass blades mean less stress on the turf, the crowns are shaded and protected from the heat of the sun, grass roots should grow deeper, and your turf will do much nicer during the summer than the lawns mowed close

and stressed. 3) Change your mowing pattern each time you mow. Mow east to west one week, then north to south the next. Then take it diagonally. Just like the golf course pros do! This encourages your grass to grow upright, rather than laying down (being mowed one direction all the time) and definitely creates a happier lawn! 4) Throw those clippings back into the turf. Returning those clippings is like one additional fertilizing each year. Grass clippings are 75 to 85 percent water, decompose quickly, and do not create thatch problems. 5) Have those mowers blades sharpened on a regular basis, which means at least three to four times

throughout the mowing season. Dull blades shred rather than cut, which will give your lawn a yellowed look, and will make the grass more susceptible to disease. 6) Be sure to clean out under the mower deck when you’re finished mowing. It’s important to remove that grass build up, especially if you have an under the deck exhaust. It also helps the mower deck to operate properly. So keep under the deck cleaned. 7) If your lawn doesn’t get enough rainfall, water as needed. Remember the golden rule of 1 inch of rainfall every 10 days or so for optimum growing. If we don’t get it naturally, you have to supplement.

What you’ll feel when a close relationship ends grief and incomprehension. I never heard from her again. No letter. No calls. No explanations … All meaning, delight and promise seemed to have vanished from my life.” Millions of people can empathize with his feelings. And whether it happens when we’re young or old, it’s always painful. We never want it to happen again. Numbed by our grief, we often resort to one of the following defenses. 1. Pessimism: we conclude we’re unlovable, people are untrustworthy, or we decide love is an illusion and try to protect ourselves from loving again. 2. Pseudoromanticism: we engage in sex for merely selfish purposes, play at being romantic or pretend we love another – but cut and run when things get too serious. That way, we’re never

It’s said a most precious situation in life occurs when we are able to achieve three important things: to love someone; to have this someone love me; and to have both these things happen at the same time. We smile and knowingly admit, “Yes, but it doesn’t always happen this way.” In his book, “To Love and Be Loved,” Sam Keen relates a crucial time in his life. He was a young man in college and in love with a girl who said she loved him. They often discussed, and really believed, that their relationship was destined for a lifelong journey of bliss. Then, he writes, “In April, the cruelest of months, she came for the spring dance, and after the last waltz, sudden as death, she told me she didn’t love me anymore… “When she left, I collapsed into

hurt, our ego is soothed, and the pain happens to someone else. It’s sort of a revenge for what happened to us. 3. Pragmatism: We settle for platonic or practical relationships, avoid intense expressions of romance, and relate as a good friend rather than lover. At times of hurt, disillusionment or cynicism, we see no wisdom in the centuries-old adage: “Tis better to have loved and lost, than never to have loved at all.” Heartaches, though never sought, are part of human existence. When they happen to us they seem devoid of any good aspect, they’re only catastrophic. It takes time to grasp the bigger picture of our lives. We can’t see how the relational suffering in our lives accomplishes anything but a broken heart. Only later do we dare admit

that they often can have some benefit for us: they open unrevealed places in our hearts, create compassion for others, and give birth to a greater wisdom about ourselves, life and the real meaning of love. Ernest Hemingway stated a great truth when he wrote, “Life breaks everyone, and afterward, many are strong in the broken places.” Those are just some of the reasons why it is better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all. Yet there is even a greater reason. Though we may lose the one we love, we have still accomplished what many yearn for but do not savor. For anytime we genuinely love, we are a magnificent success both spiritually and psychologically. As Rilke attests, “For one human being to love another

human being: that is perhaps the most difficult task that has Father Lou been entrusted to Guntzelman us, the ultimate test, the final test Perspectives and proof, the work for which all other work is preparatory.” The challenge to every human is to love. If our love is not returned, our call still remains. As Dr. James Hollis puts it: “The great rhythm of gain and loss is outside our control; what remains within our control is the attitude of willingness to find, in even the bitterest losses, what remains to be lived.” Father Lou Guntzelman is a Catholic priest of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati.

‘Chow’ down on local cathedral chef’s recipes There are a lot of cookbooks brought to my attention to review. Joanne “Giovanna” Delli Carpini Trimpe’s “Holy Chow” really stands out in the stack. Giovanna is the chef at St. Peter in Chains Cathedral in downtown Cincinnati and is the author of this book, thus the name. The book itself is vibrant with color and reflects Giovanna’s unorthodox approach to cooking. “The hardest thing about the book was having to measure everything,” she told me. She has been cooking since she was 14 and never measured, just cooked “to taste” like many of us. Career-wise, she worked for family, doing accounting. “I did not like that,” she told me. Her interest in food led to catering and volun-

leaving and that she should apply. The book itself is an interesting read, with stories and Bible quotes (from her husband) that go along with each recipe. It is available online at or by calling 513-295-2510.

teering for school dinners a n d church events. Giovanna has a rich Rita cb oao kc ikn gHeikenfeld g r o u n d , Rita’s kitchen h a v i n g lived in Italy, Venezuela and in the U.S. Her passion for good food made with love has become legendary here in our area, and that led her to the job she currently occupies at St. Peter’s. So how did she get the job? Her husband, Mike, working on his master’s in lay ministry, invited Deacon David Klingshirn to dinner. He told her their chef was

Giovanna Trimpe’s Chicken Marsala Prepare chicken:

Use 4 chicken breasts pounded thin, to about 1 inch. Sprinkle 1⁄2 teaspoon each kosher salt and 1⁄2 teaspoon freshly cracked pepper on chicken. Put 1 cup all-purpose flour in a bowl and dip chicken in to cover both sides. Shake off excess. Put 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil in large skillet on medium heat.


I feel such a sense of e m p ow e r m e n t . D e co r a t i n g m y ow n a p a r t m e n t

Rita’s version of chicken Marsala over whole-wheat spaghetti.

Add 3 cloves chopped garlic and cook to light brown; don’t burn. Add 1⁄2 teaspoon each kosher salt and freshly cracked pepper. Add chicken. Don’t crowd. Cook each side for three minutes. Add another teaspoon of olive oil if necessary.

Prepare sauce:

Take chicken out of skillet and add 1 cup fresh mushrooms or a 7-ounce can. Cook one to two minutes. Then on simmering heat add 3⁄4 cup Marsala wine. Loosen residue and add 1 ⁄4 cup fresh chopped flat leaf parsley and 1⁄2 cup mascarpone cheese. Whisk until melted, about three minutes. Taste and add salt or wine. Add 2 tablespoons water if too thick.

Prepare final chicken:

Put chicken back in sauce and cook on simmer for five minutes. Flip occa-

sionally and just before removing pour 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice over. Take chicken out and add 1⁄4 cup water and whisk again on high for 15 seconds to deglaze the sauce and make it smoother. Pour over chicken when served – use a rubber spatula to get all the sauce out. Good with rice, potatoes, fettuccine Alfredo.

Update on radio rolls

Tom Heitkamp, a Mount Lookout reader, made the recipe that he sent me from a website. They turned out well, though he doesn’t know if they’re authentic. The glaze was a disappointment, however, so we’re working on that part. I checked with Rose Levy Beranbaum, the queen of baking, and she has never heard of these rolls. Does anybody know of a bakery here that still sells them?

Rita’s pasta with Pecorino Romano and arugula

The arugula in my herb garden is still producing like crazy, though with the heat it is becoming a bit hotter in flavor. 12 oz. or so pasta, boiled 1 stick butter or substitute


Local chef Joanne “Giovanna” Delli Carpini Trimpe wrote a cookbook titled “Holy Chow.” 2 nice cloves chopped garlic (optional) Romano cheese, grated – about 2 cups Salt and pepper to taste Arugula – a few handfuls, chopped (go to taste, using less than you think you want at first) Reserved pasta water, about 2 cups Toss hot pasta with butter and garlic. Sprinkle in a little over half the cheese, salt and pepper, and just enough of the reserved water to make a sauce. If you need more water, add it. Add arugula, mix and serve, garnished with rest of cheese. Rita Nader Heikenfeld is an herbalist, educator and author. E-mail columns@community with “Rita’s kitchen” in the subject line.

Visitors will soon be able to see the Declaration of Independence on display in “America I AM: The African American Imprint” at Cincinnati Museum Center. A rare original copy of the Declaration will go on display Saturday, July 31. The document is the featured attraction of the “Declaration of Independence Road Trip,” a project originally founded by famed television/film producer Norman Lear. On July 4, 1776, approximately 200 copies of

the newly drafted and approved Declaration of Independence were printed by John Dunlap of Philadelphia. As of 1989, only 24 copies of the “Dunlap broadsides” were known to exist until a flea market shopper bought a framed painting for $4. While inspecting a tear in the painting, the owner discovered a folded Dunlap broadside behind it. Twenty-one of the surviving copies are owned by colleges, historical societies, libraries and city halls. The

remaining four are in private collections – including this copy which Lear, his wife Lyn and a friend purchased at an online auction in 2000 at Sotheby’s. The Declaration of Independence will be on display inside of “America I AM the Measure of Justice,” one of the America I AM’s 12 galleries. It will be featured next to a bill of sale for a Negro woman and child from 1776. The placement of these two rare artifacts together showcases the paradox of the situation. While America celebrated its newfound freedom as a nation, its African American residents would not be able to obtain their own for decades to come. A celebration of nearly 500 years of achievement, “America I AM” attempts to answer a question– “Would America have been America without her Negro people?” – put forth by noted African American scholar W.E.B. DuBois. Developed in partnership with broadcaster Tavis Smiley and organized by Arts and Exhibitions International and Cincinnati Museum Center, “America I AM” features more than 250 rare artifacts. Items include Frederick Douglass’ free papers signed by Abraham Lincoln and the key to the cell where Martin Luther King Jr. wrote the inspirational “Letter from Birmingham Jail.” “America I AM” is on display through Jan. 2. Tickets are $12 adults, $11 seniors (age 60 or older) and $8 children (ages 3-12). Member tickets are $8 adults and $5 children. The Declaration of Independence will be on display Saturday, July 31, through Oct. 3. For more on the Declaration of Independence, visit For details on “America I AM,” call 2877000 or visit

Planned Giving Council honors area residents The Greater Cincinnati Planned Giving Council recently honored East Walnut Hills residents Kinny and Kathi McQuade; and Hyde Park residents Tom and Cece Mooney, Richard “Dick” Weiland, and Lucy Ward with Voices of Giving Awards for their selfless giving to area charities. The McQuades’ passion for Bayley Place stems from the positive experiences Kathi’s mother, Virginia Gordon Friendship, had while living there. That commitment grew with Kinny joining the organization’s board in 2004 and Kathi continuing to share her talents as a volunteer. The East Walnut Hills couple also supports Bayley Place through annual contributions and special events; however, they felt a planned gift is a crucial way to ensure its success and permanence in the community. Bayley Place provides a continuum of care for older adults and their families in Greater Cincinnati’s western region, and also a full spectrum of services through its Community Wellness Center. Remembering her mother’s fond experiences while living in the Deupree House, a community of Episcopal Retirement Homes, moving there in 2007 was a natural decision for Cece Mooney and her husband, Tom. Since then the couple has been actively enjoying retirement by exercising in the pool, attending programs and serving in leadership roles on the resident council. They chose to leave a bequest to the Deupree House as a way of honoring the memory of Cece’s mother, Alice Scott, and of giving back to a community of friends and neighbors. In more than 50 years of service, Weiland has been

While just in his mid20s, he assumed a leadership role in the community’s

annual campaign and cofounded the Young Leadership Cabinet. After decades on the Federation Board, he continues active service as one of only two lifetime emeritus members. Ten years ago, Weiland and his late wife, Marsha, established a permanent endowment fund to support

Legacy” initiative. With this gift, Weiland continues to inspire many others to make legacy gifts to causes they most believe in and to make Cincinnati a better place. Ward began volunteering at the Wellness Community of Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky in the late 1990s. When two of her close friends were diagnosed with cancer, she transitioned from volunteer to board trustee and currently serves as the board president. She credits her parents for teaching her the importance of giving back, and seeing firsthand how people she cares about benefited from the Wellness Community, it was a natural decision to include the organization in her estate plans. Ward’s bequest will help to assure that it continue to provide free programs of emotional support, education and hope to people battling cancer, to their care givers and loved ones. The Greater Cincinnati Planned Giving Council is a professional association of individuals whose life work is to helping ensure the viability of charitable organizations. It is among the first Planned Giving Councils nationwide to launch the Leave a Legacy Program that encourages individuals to leave a bequest or other planned gift to a nonprofit cause important to them. For more information about planned gifts, visit or call 5543071.

RECORD Grand jury to hear assault case involving TV anchor, wife Eastern Hills Press

July 28, 2010

Gannett News Service Prosecutors have dropped misdemeanor charges against the man accused of assaulting the wife of WCPO-TV (Channel 9 News) anchor Brendan Keefe and a country club employee so that a grand jury can decide the matter. Prosecutors on July 14 dismissed two counts of assault against Duane Thompson, 38, of Hyde Park, for allegedly strking Keefe’s wife Tiffany and an employee of Ivy Hills country Club in Newtown on July 11. Steve Tolbert, an assistant

Hamilton County prosecutor, said the charges were dismissed to let a grand jury – not police – decide what charges, if any, should be brought. “It’s so the grand jury can investigate the entire thing and decide what charges will be against whom,” Tolbert said. Julie Wilson, spokeswoman for the prosecutor’s office, said the dismissal was made out of an “abundance of caution.” “The concern is with double jeopardy,” she said. “As in any case, if someone pleads to a lesser

charge and then further investigation reveals it should have been something more serious, we cannot charge them with the more serious offense. So that’s why sometimes we do this.” Reached by phone at home, Keefe said he and his wife are aware the charges were dropped and that the case remains under investigation. He said prosecutors promised to tell them more. “The prosecutor had us in yesterday to talk to us and ask us more questions,” he said. NewsBlues, a TV industry web-

Greener Stock receives mural

Artist Shepard Fairey and his crew recently installed a mural on the exterior of the Greener Stock building at the corner of Hoge Street and Columbia Parkway in Columbia Tusculum. Greener Stock owner Heather Curless submitted an application for a mural in February, but was not notified that her building had been selected until one hour prior to its installation. Fairey is installing murals around Cincinnati as an extension of his exhibit

site, reported that the case was dismissed after a judge heard testimony. Hamilton County Municipal Court Judge Bernie Bouchard called that report “completely a fabrication.” Bouchard said there was no such hearing. Newtown police have said witnesses told them an inebriated Thompson let his unattended golf cart roll downhill from the clubhouse and crash into the fence around the swimming pool, two feet away from Tiffany Keefe and their infant daughter. Brendan Keefe was in the pool with their 3-

New Children’s Zoo ready for play Children recently had the opportunity to swing like monkeys, hang like pottos and balance like cats at the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden with the official grand opening of the newly renovated Joseph H. Spaulding Children’s Zoo. The Children’s Zoo has been under construction for the last four months. “The Children’s Zoo has been a special place for families for a long time,” said Chief Operating Officer Dave Jenike. “We continue to look for more ways to inspire visitors with wildlife every day. This new area is the perfect place for families to relax, interact with animals and have lots of fun.” In 1937, the Cincinnati Zoo opened one of the world’s early children’s zoos and has been renovated several times since. In 1947, the Children’s Zoo was renovated in time to be used by a new generation of post-war baby boomers. The Children’s Zoo was

greatly improved in a 1964 renovation. And, in 1985 the Children’s Zoo was completely rebuilt in a major renovation, made possible by Ruth Spaulding in memory of her son and husband. Twenty five years later, the Joseph H. Spaulding Children’s Zoo opens with a fresh, new look at the animal nursery, a new and improved “Be the Animal” playscape, expanded contact yard and little penguins viewing area, and lots of new animals. Children can let loose their inner animals in the play area that features a slide, crawl tunnel, monkey bars, balance beam, synthetic mulch, as well as the always popular spider web and turtle shells, and much more. The expanded petting yard will allow more space for children and families to interact and even brush some of the zoo’s friendliest

animal residents, including baby pygmy goats, Nigerian dwarf goats and new baby doll sheep. The petting yard is open weekdays 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and weekends 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., but guests can feed the animals outside the yard all day. In addition, baby miniature cows, llamas and alpacas have been added to the barnyard. The Children’s Zoo will also feature an updated nursery viewing area, where guests can see a baby aardvark, “Lucy,” the bearcat and “Rocko,” the wallaby and a variety of baby animals throughout the year. The Cincinnati Zoo opens daily at 9 a.m. Regular admission prices are $14/adults, $9/children and seniors (2-12, 62 and older) and children under two are free. Parking is $7.
