Bid rejected

Mariemont City School District officials are seeking more bids on a sidewalk project for the high school. The board of education recently rejected the only bid for the project because it was $43,100 more than the $50,000 project estimate. Bob Rich, an architect working on the project for the school district, said he removed a section of brick pavers – part of a spirit walkway developed and paid for by the Mariemont School Foundation – to keep costs down.

Mt. Lookout musician honored Man to be lauded during Cincy Blues Fest Aug. 6-7

By Lisa Wakeland

Leo Clarke remembers the exact moment he was mesmerized by the blues. It was during a B.B. King concert when Clarke was 15 years old. “I was watching him and he looked at me,” Clarke remembered. “I heard those riffs and went home to try them.” The Mount Lookout resident’s passion for the blues hasn’t wavered in the two decades since the B.B. King concert. Clarke, now 35, plays in a Rolling Stones tribute band and likens his playing style to Bob Dylan or Neil Young, but still gravitates toward the blues. “I like all kinds of music, but I tend to play the blues better,” he said. “I got my first guitar when I was 15 and continued to fall in love with it more and more.” This year Clarke decided to enter the Cincy Blues Challenge at the end of May and placed second. “That was a special night,” he said. “I was in the moment and played my heart out.” Clarke said he is honored to have placed second in the competition, but was surprised. The judges, however, were impressed with his style of “good, old downhome blues on an acoustic guitar.” “He had a unique, smoky timbre to his voice and a good rapport with the audience, which clearly was an asset,” the Cincy Blues Society wrote about Clarke on their website. Clarke will receive an award for his challenge performance at the Cincy Blues Fest, set for Aug. 6 and 7 at Sawyer Point. After that, Clarke said he will continue to play music and try to take first place at next year’s challenge.

Pact OK’d for former Kmart site By Rob Dowdy

Dozens of meetings and hours of negotiations during the last two years have led to an agreement between Columbia Township and Neyer Properties. During a recent special meeting township trustees voted unanimously to approve a tax increment financing deal with Neyer.

With the agreement in place, Neyer will soon begin redeveloping the vacant Kmart site in the township. Columbia To w n s h i p Langenkamp Trustee President Stephen Langenkamp said the tax increment financing agreement

benefits both parties. “I think we brokered a deal the community can get behind,” he said. Jeff Chamot, senior development project manager with Neyer, said with the township approving the agreement, the development company can move closer to completing a lease agreement with a tenant for the site. Chamot said the tenant, which remains unnamed until the deal is

completed, will use the full building site once used by Kmart, which is much more space than originally anticipated when the TIF agreement was first discussed several years ago. Trustee Susan Hughes praised the work of Trustee David Kubicki, who wasn’t a trustee the last time the township took a vote on the agreement, for his work during negotiations.

Intersection construction work ‘worth it’ Columbia Township Administrator Michael Lemon said construction work at the Ridge and Highland intersection is having an impact on businesses in the area, though he said once completed the project “will be worth it.”

Work on the township’s comprehensive plan also continues. During the recent Columbia Township trustees’ recent meeting Lemon said he’s nearly completed the request for proposals which will go out to local companies that

could assist township officials in finishing the document, which must be updated every five years. Also during the meeting Trustee Stephen Langenkamp provided an update from the Little Miami Joint Fire and Rescue District.

Mariemont rejects sidewalk project bid Walkway The paver sidewalk segments, with personalized and engraved bricks, are part of a Mariemont School Foundation initiative. There will be a large recognition ring in the grassy island outside of the high school auditorium with the names of the four communities in the district, constructed with bricks reclaimed

from Terrace Park, Mariemont and Fairfax elementary schools. A large donor wall near the ring will recognize people and businesses that help the Mariemont School Foundation. Bricks cost $75 each. Visit for details on how to order a brick.

Mariemont City School District officials are seeking more bids on a sidewalk project for the high school. The Board of Education recently rejected the only bid for the project because it was $43,100 more than the $50,000 project estimate. Bob Rich, an architect working on the project for

the school district, said he removed a section of brick pavers – part of a spirit walkway developed and paid for by the Mariemont School Foundation – to keep costs down. Rich said other design revisions include narrowing the steps on the hillside between the high school and Kusel Stadium from 8 feet to 6 feet. Superintendent Paul Imhoff said the school district planned to install a sidewalk and replace the stairs prior to the Foundation’s involvement. Imhoff said the plan will improve pedestrian safety during school events and the modifications allow the Mariemont School Foundation to still recognize families without the additional costs. Board member Marie Huenefeld said she would like to see the curb cuts for handicap access ramps included in a bid alternate. The Board of Education agreed to solicit new bids and construction consultant Denny Humbel said his company would actively pursue contractors for the project. Humbel said the school district needs at least three bids to be competitive. Imhoff said he would like

the sidewalk to be installed before the Oct. 1 homecoming game. It was originally scheduled for completion prior to the first day of school on Wednesday, Aug. 25.

The Board of Education will conduct a special meeting at 8 a.m. Friday, Aug. 13, to review bids at the board office, 6743 Chestnut St.

Federal stimulus money headed to Terrace Park By Lisa Wakeland

Wooster Pike work

A boost from the federal stimulus package could mean less compromise for the Wooster Pike medians in Terrace Park. The Ohio Kentucky Indiana Regional Council of Governments recently reported $124,311 of the project will be funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. Councilman Jim Muennich said this new funding source will take some of the cost burden off the project, which includes segmented medians, decorative light-

Terrace Park received more than $837,000 in federal stimulus money to install curbs and catch basins on Wooster Pike (U.S. 50). The project began earlier this summer and also includes traffic lights on poles at the five-points intersection of Elm Avenue, Wooster Pike and Indian Hill and Given roads. It is expected to be finished by the end of September. ing and brick paver crosswalks. “I’m hopeful that it’s more likely we’ll not have

to trim the project,” Muennich said. Terrace Park learned in March that there were a number of cost increases associated with the project, which has been in the works since 2008. The project originally was estimated to cost $661,000, but Greg Bell, project manager for the engineering firm working on the medians, said the new estimate is closer to $800,000. Bell said the cost of the pavers has tripled in the past two years and there have been cost increases in lighting and electric. John Heilman, technical services coordinator for OKI, said the federal stimulus money has reduced the regional council’s project budget to $603,350 and thus reduced the village’s 20 percent match requirement. Terrace Park will be responsible for $120,670 of the median project, which goes out to bid on Oct. 21.



Mariemont Maintenance Superintendent John Scherpenberg said that when he started working in the village 18 years ago, only 1 foot of this storm water pipe was exposed. Erosion has pushed this hillside back almost 20 feet.

Marya Dungan is worried about the woods behind her house on Park Lane. Dungan recently asked the Mariemont Council to investigate options to control the erosion in the woods near the bell tower in Dogwood Park. She said the erosion has taken out a few trees on the hillside and a formerly small ditch is now roughly 5 feet wide. Dungan said the problem is accelerating and she’s noticed an additional 2 to 3 feet of land has slipped away since April. Mariemont’s Maintenance Superintendent John Scherpenberg said the problem has been a concern for years. As water from a storm pipe flows into the creek, it

in the village 18 years, Scherpenberg said only a small section, about 1 foot, of the pipe was visible. Now there is close to 20 feet of the drainage pipe exposed. Scherpenberg said he hopes the maintenance department will be able to cut trees in the winter and clear the logs from the creek to improve water flow. The logs could be placed against the banks of the creek to act as retaining walls. “We’re going to try to control it and that might help,” he said. “Eventually, if it keeps eroding, we’re going to have houses going down the hillside.” He said the village would need a geotechnical engineer to evaluate the area and come up with a longterm solution to the erosion problem.

SCHOOLS Faculty members receive grants

| NEWS | Editor Eric Spangler || 576-8251 ACHIEVEMENTS

Three faculty members of the Seven Hills School were recently awarded grants for personal enrichment experiences from Seven Hills’ Miriam Titcomb Fund. Founded by alumnae, the endowed fund annually awards grants for faculty personal and professional enrichment. Seven Hills Science Department chair and middle school science teacher Karen Glum of Blue Ash received a grant for her project “Connecting the Sciences, Connecting Students Through Birds.” She traveled to Alaska in June with Drs. Dave and Jill Russell (the scientist professors and bird

banders working with the sixth graders on their bird studies program), journalism professor Jenny Wohlfarth, Glum’s husband Scott and their sons Elliot and Michael. The group studied and banded birds, formed partnerships with Alaskan teachers and scientists, collected scientific information to use in science classes for school year 2010-11 and learned about glaciers, volcanoes, earthquakes, wildlife and the arctic. The trip included visits to Anchorage, Denali National Park, Fairbanks, Barrow and the Kenai Peninsula. Seven Hills Lotspeich fourthgrade teacher Malinda

McReynolds of Milford received a grant for her project “Backyard Adventures: Scenic Drives in North America.” She and her videographer husband Jeffrey explored the beauty and cultural diversity of America for two weeks in July, including the California coast and Yosemite National Park.

English teacher Molly Murray Petre was recently honored for her accomplishments in the classroom. Cincinnati Country Day School honored Petre with its Lee S. Pattison Award for 2010.

Award honors exceptional teachers By Forrest Sellers

Cincinnati Country Day School has honored both a foreign language teacher and an English teacher for their accomplishments. Both Jeanette Hecker and Molly Murray Petre are recipients of this year’s Lee S. Pattison Distinguished Teacher Award. The annual award, named after the late Cincinnati Country Day School teacher Lee S. Pattison, recognizes exceptional teachers at Cincinnati Country Day School. Hecker, 48, who has taught at Cincinnati Country Day for 11 years, was recognized for her efforts in integrating technology into the classroom. “Because I teach foreign languages I want my students to have an appreciation for foreign cultures and diversity,” said Hecker, who teaches high school French.

The annual award, named after the late Cincinnati Country Day School teacher Lee S. Pattison, recognizes exceptional teachers at Cincinnati Country Day School. “I want them to get out there and explore.” Hecker said one way this can be accomplished is through technology. The students input voice recordings on the computer, listen to podcasts and watch television news programs broadcast in French. Hecker said students are also encouraged to travel and to participate in language immersion camps. “I take a communicative

approach,” she said. “We spend a lot of time in class speaking the language.” Petre, 51, was recognized for her ability to generate enthusiasm in her fifth-grade English students. “I try and make (English) appealing by tapping into the natural enthusiasm that age has,” said Petre, who has taught at Cincinnati Country Day for 17 years. Petre integrates classic literature and culture into her curriculum. Students in Petre’s class also write a 20-page autobiography to present a snapshot of themselves. “There is a lot of depth to what they write,” said Petre, who is a resident of Hyde Park. Recipients of last year’s Lee S. Pattison Award were Elvira Carrillo and Peter Fossett.

St. Ursula golf looks strong for ’10 By Mark Chalifoux

At st : fir nce a gl

The St. Ursula Academy golf team was one of the best Division I teams in the state in 2009 and not much will change this fall. “I think we should be good,” head coach Mark Hannahan said. “We return three of the girls who played in the state tournament for us last year so we have some good, experienced players.” Leading the way for the Bulldogs is senior Katie Wooliver (Anderson Township), who had a 39.33 average in 2009. Ellen Reinhold (Loveland) is another senior standout who averaged a 40.9 in 2009. Junior Madeline Meiners (Evendale) is the third returning state player, as the junior averaged a 41 in 2009.



St. Ursula’s Katie Wooliver chips onto the green in the rain. Wooliver will be one of the top players for the Bulldogs this season. The varsity team returns two more strong players in senior Emily Nimrock

(Loveland) and junior Chloe Williams (Indian Hill). “They have the potential

to be one of the best teams St. Ursula has ever had,” Hannahan said. “All five of

those girls are very competitive and talented. All the girls have worked hard in the offseason and played in a lot of tournaments so there’s no reason to doubt that they can be just as good as the team last year.” The Bulldogs finished third in the state in 2009, one stroke behind secondplace finisher Lakota West. Mason was the 2009 state champion. “Both of those teams return a lot of the players who helped them accomplish those feats,” Hannahan said. “I know Ursuline will be strong this year and that Sycamore has a very good team as well.”

He said the key for the Bulldogs would be in the mental part of the game. “All of these girls have good golf swings and have worked hard on their games for many years. They are all capable of shooting in the mid-to-low 70s on any course on any given day so the focus and mental toughness is what’s important,” Hannahan said. Hannahan also said he’s looking forward to the start of the 2010 golf season. “We have a great group of girls who get along and have fun together. It’s an honor and a pleasure to coach them,” he said. “They play good golf but also know how to relax and have fun, because it is a game after all. It’s a great group of parents as well and I’m very excited and looking forward to the start of the season eagerly.”

BRIEFLY First glance at fall sports

The Eastern Hills Journal is taking a look at fall sports by putting the spotlight on select high school teams as a first glance at the season, with more coverage to come on other schools.

Expect to see coverage on the following dates: This week – Golf and cross country Aug. 11 – Volleyball and girls’ tennis Aug. 18 – Boys’ and girls’ soccer Aug. 25 – Football, all inclusive

Warriors return experienced runners By Mark Chalifoux

The Mariemont High School boys’ cross country team had a banner year in 2009, winning Cincinnati Hills League and district championships and qualifying for the state meet as a team. But one thing the 2010 Warriors team won’t be doing is focusing on the past. “If you start doing that you get complacent,” head coach Jeff Timmers said. “We set new goals each year and no Mariemont team has won the CHL back to back, so that is a goal of ours, as well as getting back to state.” Timmers has some strong talent returning as the Warriors bring back five of their top seven runners. Co-captain Brian Austin, one of the team’s top three runners in 2009, will lead the charge for Mariemont. With him will be captain Ben Gorman, a standout junior for Mariemont. Juniors Luke Porst and Bryan Routt and sophomore Nathan Cuck are back as well. “We do lose our fastest runner to graduation and another one of our top runners has decided to focus on swimming so that will be a motivation for us,” Timmers said. “When you lose top guys, you have a motivation to buckle down as a team and get better and I’ve seen teams do that.

cross country as a freshman but did have a strong track season. “We’re really exited to have him on the team,” Timmers said. “There will be some pressure on him from the get-go so we’ll have to nurture that to have him run good times.” Timmers said last year’s cross country team was the best he’s seen in the program and that the 2010 team will be right up there as well. “We have solid individuals on the team and if they improve and get better they can equal the success we had last year,” he said. “I feel this team has the capability of surprising some people because they know what it takes and have what it takes to get to state.” The CHL will be difficult, as always. Along with Mariemont, Wyoming, Indian Hill and Finneytown should have good teams. Timmers said the team has bonded well and he hopes that will help motivate them and help them avoid becoming complacent after last season’s success. “We don’t want to harp on last year,” Timmers said, “but the one thing that will remind them of last year is that I won’t be shaving. Once practice starts, the razor and I part ways and that growth of beard will be the daily reminder of where we were before and where we want to be at the end of the season.”

Realigned FAVC shifts to 2 divisions

All sports but football making the change By Anthony Amorini

The realignment of Fort Ancient Valley Conference divisions sees the 17-team league shift from three divisions to two divisions for the 2010-2011 school year. The FAVC Buckeye, FAVC Cardinal and FAVC Scarlet divisions are officially gone for everything but football. Replacing the old divisions for the rest of the sports is the FAVC East Division and the FAVC West Division in a move designed to capitalize on more localized rivalries. Walnut Hills is moving to the newly minted FAVC East Division. The FAVC East Division is comprised of Anderson, Glen Este, Loveland and Milford from the FAVC Buckeye; Turpin, Walnut Hills, Kings, Little Miami and Wilmington from the FAVC Cardinal. “We were sort of in a position to pick which division we wanted to be in and we’re excited to end up in the east,” Walnut Hills Ath-


Walnut Hills guard Phylesha Bullard goes up for a shot against Vandalia Butler in the girls basketball regional semifinal in March. The Eagles will have a tougher road to a conference championship in 2011 with the FAVC realignment. letic Director Tom Donnelly said. “We have healthy rivalries with a lot of those teams and they are folks we feel we’re competitive with and will cause our program to be all the better. We’re excited about it.” The FAVC West Division is comprised of Winton

Woods from the FAVC Buckeye and Edgewood, Harrison, Mount Healthy, Norwood, Northwest, Ross and Talawanda from the FAVC Scarlet. Amelia, formerly of the FAVC Cardinal, is now part of the Southern Buckeye Conference which leaves

only five football teams in the FAVC Cardinal. The FAVC Buckeye and FAVC Scarlet remain sixteam divisions for football. “We’re also pleased that the football alignment will stay the way it is because that’s important for all the programs,” Donnelly said. “It’s good for programs like ours that are trying to develop and grow to greatness and for the other programs, they are better served in their playoff pursuits by playing teams that will likely give them the most Harbin points.” The FAVC was a threedivision conference from 2006 to 2010. Before that, teams were separated into two divisions with the FAVC Buckeye and FAVC Cardinal. Loveland captured the final FAVC Buckeye Division All Sports Trophy in 2010 with 111.5 points to Anderson’s 94.5. Turpin won the final FAVC Cardinal Division All Sports Trophy in 2010 with 108.5 points to Kings’ 93.5. Ross was the FAVC Scarlet Division All Sports Trophy winner in 2010 with 96.5 points to Talawanda’s 92.5. Staff writer Mark Chalifoux contributed.

Hyde Park athletes named All-Americans Three student-athletes at The Summit Country Day School have been named U.S. Lacrosse Academic AllAmericans. Hyde Park residents Liz Edwards, Maggie David and Lissie Russert received the award, which recognizes high-achievement in academics, extracurricular involvement and athletics. Edwards was also named Honorable Mention AllAmerican, which is awarded to athletes for superior skills, game sense and knowledge of the game. In her first year as head varsity coach Megan Sanders led the Silver Knights to a .500 record of 8-8-1 in their sixth season of play. Seniors David and Edwards were two of the team’s three captains last year. Russert will return as a senior next year. “We’re proud of the girls,” said Summit Athletic Director Gregory Dennis. “It’s a tremendous accomplishment for the team to achieve this with a program as young as the one here at The Summit. It’s a tremendous accomplishment for coach Sanders too.” The best-in-country standards set for Academic



From left, Liz Edwards, Lissie Russert and Maggie David, lacrosse players for Summit Country Day, celebrate being named U.S. Academic All-Americans. All-Americans are tough to meet because players must not only be superior highschool athletes when compared to their peers across the country, but must also be exceptional scholars and leaders in their schools, said Sanders.

“She is an incredibly wellrounded student athlete. “She has a 4.4 GPA. She’s a leader in school and on the field. And she’s a great athlete too. “She is what I would call a game changer. She has a presence. The other teams we competed against always knew about her. She was the player to watch.” Edwards was also First Team All-State, First Team All-District. She will play Division I lacrosse at Davidson College

“I knew how good these girls were on the field, but when I had to research their records for academics and leadership in order to nominate them, let me tell you, I was extremely impressed.” Midfielder Edwards set the bar high, says Sanders.

Tattoos and piercings may come with serious health side effects Tattoos and body piercings are increasingly popular, yet anyone considering a tattoo or piercing should be aware of health risks and Tim Ingram take precautions to avoid serious Community health side Press guest effects. columnist State law requires all tattoo and body piercing establishments, including those for cosmetic permanent make-up, to be licensed by their local health department. The law is designed to ensure that these procedures are done in a way that minimizes the transmission of communicable diseases and the risk of infection. People who visit unlicensed facilities (e.g. residential homes, tattoo parties, Craigslist advertisements, etc.) face serious health consequences, ranging from local skin infections to blood-borne illnesses such as Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C and HIV. Additionally, employees of tattoo/piercing facilities are required to be trained in first aid, control of transmission of infectious disease, universal precautions against blood-borne pathogens and appropriate aftercare. Hamilton County Public Health inspects tattoo and body piercing establishments to ensure safe and sanitary conditions are being maintained. The most recent inspection reports can be viewed at When choosing a tattooing or body piercing establishment: • Request to see a copy of the establishment’s current operating license. The license should be readily available and posted at the facility. • Make sure the establishment looks clean and a restroom facility is available to customers. Look for proper lighting within the establishment. • Verify that the artist’s first aid and blood-borne pathogen training documents are available and up-to-date. Look for previous

Check for pictures on the wall or a binder/portfolio with photos of work that the artist has done. • Prior to beginning any procedure, the artist should wash their hands with soap and water in a nearby sink. • Make sure the artist uses brand new, disposable needles and razors, ink caps and a new, clean pair of sterile gloves for each piercing or tattooing client. All items should be used only once. • The artist should clean the skin before tattooing or piercing. • Make sure you are given detailed follow-up instructions and follow them exactly as written. Parents should understand and talk to their children about the consequences of tattoos and body piercings. Not all establishments choose to tattoo those under the age of 18. The state of Ohio requires a parent or legal guardian to be present when anyone under the age of 18 receives a tattoo or body piercing. Additionally, Hamilton County Public Health requires a state issued driver’s license, state ID or birth certificate for both individuals.

CH@TROOM Last week’s question:

What was your best summer job? Your worst? Why?’ “My best summer job was at a camp called Camp Nuhop. It was a camp for children with disabilities. It was located by Mohican State Park. I learned all kinds of skills pertaining to group control and positive discipline. “I went on to a career as a special educator going on 32 years now. The camp is still operating and I refer many students there.” K.S. “My best summer job was when I was between my junior and senior years in high school. I worked, along with my nephew, at the Easterly Sewage Plant in Cleveland, spreading gravel. It was also my worst summer job, since it’s the only summer job I ever held.” Bill B. “For the summer between high school graduation and college I landed a job as a temporary postal carrier. Besides it being a decent paying job, I got to be outdoors and meet lots of people all over Greater Cincinnati. It was also a transition for me since, for the first time in my life, adults treated me as an adult.” R.V. “My best summer job was the summer I was 16. A family I babysat for had a little boy who was 2. About 2 weeks before summer break his mom gave birth to twin girls. My summer job was going to their house Monday–Friday during the day to help with the kids. “Some days I was there with Michele and the kids, some days I would have one kid, two kids, or all three kids. I learned how to determine who was crying, why they were crying, and could tend to all three at the same time if need be. “This remained my summer job for the next couple of summers. I loved the job and those kids. It was so rewarding. And 16 years when my husband and I had twin boys I could not thank them enough for all great experience to hit the ground running.” T.S. “Worst summer job was working at Mr. Gatti’s Pizza on Beechmont (about 25 years ago).

I kept the courts in shape, daily treating them and restriping them to await the barrage of players that would come out even in the 90-plus degree heat. “My worst summer job would have to be when I was in high school and it was my job to pass out coupons for free RC and DietRite cola after the riots of 1968. It was hot, sticky work walking door to door making blind calls. Obviously people were skeptical, but gladly accepted free pop. If only life's problems could be solved so ‘easily’ with free soft drinks.” R.L.H. “My favorite was working in a small grocery store in a little country town. It was enjoyable because I knew most of the customers and there were always interesting conversations about family, friends, etc.” B.N. “My one and only summer job was working at Kings Island its first and second season! Oh what fun. I enjoyed meeting all the guests that came to the park, plus other teen employees from different areas of Cincinnati – Anderson Township, Indian Hill, Wyoming, etc. Oh my gosh, not to mention that we got free admission to the park when we weren’t working.” C.A.S.

“My favorite summer job is the one I’m working on right now – posting photos of my Great Lakes Road Trip to my website You may want to check in to follow along.” K.S. “My favorite job during the summer was working on the maintenance crew at a local golf course. I loved working outside and in the sun. It was also comical to watch the golfers (usually).” C.L. “My favorite summer job was working for the Cheviot Public Works Department in the early 1970s. Back then, I think it was called the Cheviot Maintenance Department. “My first summer I worked at the old Cheviot incinerator on South Road (pre EPA days). The garbage trucks would pull in, and I’d help rake the garbage into the incinerator. “I couldn’t believe some of the useable items people threw away. Now, they’d probaby go to a charity. Several items made it to my dorm room. “The second summer I drove around in a small dump truck picking up yard waste, old water heaters, etc. “It was hard work, but it gave me a good work ethic, a good paycheck for a college kid, and I got to work with a great group of guys.” S.R.S “Working at Kings Island after graduating from high school carpooling with my friends, even though we didn’t work in the same areas. It was fun because work didn’t seem like work, and knowing that it was just a ‘summer job’ before starting college.” S.B.T. “My best summer job, unloading bushels of peaches from a railroad car that was cooled by ice. Worst summer job shoveling coal it always seemed people tried to get eight ton of coal in a bin that was only supposed to hold six.” L.S.

Schneider said making sure her customers are happy is essential. “My goal is to create a haven for women to shop for lingerie,” she said. “The way you look is extremely important. “It increases self confidence and makes you feel better about yourself.” Knickers of Hyde Park is located at 2726 Erie Ave. By Forrest Sellers.

Artist Luke Jerram said on his website for the project that “Play Me, I’m Yours” invites the public to engage with and take ownership of their urban environment. “The idea is to provide a creative blank canvas really for the public to express themselves,” Jerram said in a promotional video on the Cincinnati “Play Me, I’m Yours” website. “Rather than asking the public to come in to an art gallery or museum, I’m interested in delivering an artwork directly to their door.” Visit the website to learn more about the project.

Jenalyn Schneider is owner of Knickers of Hyde Park. The store specializes in lingerie and provides bra fitting services.

Jenalyn Schneider remembered being nervous during the unveiling of her store. More than 10 years later, though, she said she still feels the sense of pride she felt during the grand opening. “It’s like your own baby when you start (a business) from scratch,” she said. Schneider is the owner of Knickers of Hyde Park. The store specializes in lingerie, sleep wear, body products and accessories. Schneider, who also lives in Hyde Park, had previously been as assistant buyer for Saks Fifth Avenue and a lingerie manager at a Nordstrom. Schneider took some time off to be a stay-athome mom, but it was while working part-time at Knickers of Glen Ellyn in Illinois that she began to seriously consider opening her own store. “It had always been in the back of my mind,” she said. When she and her family moved to the Tristate, where Schneider had lived years before, she began looking for a store location. Schneider said she had almost considered becoming a Realtor during the search. It was one week before she was scheduled to take a final Realtor’s exam that the Hyde Park space became



Cincinnati Public Radio chose Mariemont as one of its locations for a public art installation called “Play Me, I’m Yours.” Artist Luke Jerram will set up 30 upright pianos in public spaces and encourage citizens to play, as seen here in a photograph from his website of a similar installation in London.

Public piano headed to Mariemont By Lisa Wakeland

Luke Jerram wants people to engage in his art. The international artist is placing 30 upright pianos around Cincinnati as part of his “Play Me, I’m Yours” art installation aimed at encouraging people to sit down and play the pianos. One of the pianos will be placed near the fountain in Mariemont square. “We think it’s a neat idea,” said Mariemont Councilman Jeff Andrews. Chris Phelps, vice president of marketing for Cincinnati Public Radio, said all three radio stations – 90.9 WGUC, 91.7 WVXU and 88.5 WMUB – are celebrating a combined 150 years in broadcasting and this is a good way to share the anniversaries with the entire community. “Our goal is that the community really gathers around the pianos and sees them as an asset to the community,” Phelps said. “The pianos are there for people to create music and a way for the community to engage with each other.” Mariemont resident Jeff Trester, who works with piano sponsor Comey & Shepherd Realty, said the pianos have a “buddy” to place a tarp on the pianos at night and make sure they are protected from the elements. Councilwoman Kim Sullivan said the piano project will be a great asset for the community. “People come here for the restaurants, theater and Graeter’s and I imagine they will hit the piano,” Terrace Park resident Jane Peterson said. The piano installation began on Aug. 1 and each piano will remain on display for three weeks. Phelps said local musicians will make appearances at pianos placed around the city. Jerram will paint half the pianos and student artists will paint the remainder of the pianos. Cincinnati Public Radio will donate all the pianos.


Artist Luke Jerram, seen here in a photograph from his website, plans to install 30 upright pianos in public spaces around the area as part of an anniversary celebration of Cincinnati Public Radio. Jerram has taken this project all over the world, from New York City and London to Barcelona, Spain and Sao Paulo, Brazil.

Cincinnati Zoo going green with wind The Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden recently unveiled its newest energy source – the Windspire wind turbine. The 30-foot-tall turbine was installed in the Zoo’s Go Green Garden to help power the ticketing and membership building. Along with the solar panels in the Go Green Garden, the turbine will meet approximately one-fourth of all of the power demands for the building. “The zoo is a natural

champion of environmental sustainability,” said Walt Borland, Windspire Energy CEO & president. “We are excited that the Windspire will now be a part of their efforts to demonstrate how easy it is for any us to help protect our most important habitat – Planet Earth.” Considered a relatively small wind turbine, it provides a low-cost, safe and energy-efficient method for harnessing power from the

wind. It produces approximately 2,000 kilowatt hours per year in 12 milesper-hour average winds. This is approximately onethird to one–fifth of the energy usage of an average U.S. Home, or roughly enough energy to run a dishwasher and refrigerator for an entire year. The Cincinnati Zoo has received many “green” awards. The zoo was named the 2008 Conservation Partner of the Year by

the Hamilton County Soil & Water Conservation District and received the Cincinnati Sustainability Award from the American Institute of Architects in 2009.

Here are ten rules for being human Father Lou is off this week. The Community Press is running a column that was orginally published Jan. 3, 2007.

1. You will receive a body. You may like it or dislike it, but it’s yours for life. Make friends with it, respect it, and listen to it. Your body always tells you many truths about yourself. 2. There are no mistakes, only lessons. You are made to grow, and growth is a process of trial and error, learning, and moving on. The pains of past failures are even more a teacher than the joys of gains and successes. Live and learn! 3. A lesson will be repeated until it is learned. Realize that

you cannot keep performing the same behavior and expect different results. Who, or whatever, hurts you and goes against your true growth, let go of and move on. Wise up! 4. The most important things in life are loving relationships. Your Creator’s initial advice was, “It is not good to be alone.” That was not advice against enjoying solitude but a warning about being unconnected and emotionally alone. Being in orbit around your own ego makes a mighty small world and a selfish person. Care about others! Learn to love! 5. Other people can serve as mirrors. The significant traits you like or despise about another per-

son frequently reflect something unconscious you like or despise about yourself - but which you find it hard to admit. Know thyself! 6. Whether it’s a place or a time of life, “there” is not always better than “here.” Too often the best seems to be happening “there.” But if you get “there” it then becomes a “here” and you will likely yearn for another “there” that seems better than “here.” Don’t always be living looking at a “there.” Always appreciate the “here,” the “now!” 7. Every human person has many aspects: body, soul, mind and heart. Leaving any part of yourself undeveloped produces a lop-sided and unfulfilled

person. To the extent that you develop all the parts of your humanness makes your life either a work of art or a blurred picture. Become more whole! 8. The most wonderful part of you lies deep within. It’s called “soul,” or “core,” or “true self.” It starts talking to you the loudest in the second half of your life. If you listen, it will impart wisdom, truths, and exquisite understanding you’ve never had before. If you don’t listen, you’ll miss the meaning of your life. Don’t be afraid to reflect! To listen! 9. You create your own climate. That’s because of the power of the thoughts you entertain, the attitudes you keep, the choices you make. Gripe and think nega-

tively and your life will always Father Lou be overcast and Guntzelman dark. Appreciate, and you’ll Perspectives start noticing the many good things you have. You get the emotional climate you develop. Why rain on yourself? 10. There are many “important” things in this life, and there are a few things that are really “essential.” Never, never exchange the essential for the important. Father Lou Guntzelman is a Catholic priest of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati. Contact him at columns@ or P.O. Box 428541, Cincinnati, OH 45242.

Be careful before purchasing appliance warranty I’m seeing more and more companies these days offering warranties that claim to cover all your home appliances. But, is it a good idea to sign up, or are you better off saving your money and just paying for repairs as needed? It’s not unusual to find a whole house appliance warranty offered by the seller when you looking to buy an existing house. Now some national firms, and even some local appliance repair shops, have begun offering this to all. Sherri Burton of Amelia received an ad from a national company for such a warranty for about $40 a

m o n t h and said it looked like a great deal. “ I f something w e n t w r o n g Howard Ain you were Hey Howard! to contact them and you got a claim number. I guess they subcontract. They would come out here. I would pay a $75 deductible,” said Burton. Soon after signing up she encountered a problem with her stove and called, but was very surprised at the response she received. “Bottom line, they didn’t

want to fix it. They just wanted to replace a knob and then, if something else went wrong, they’d have to come back here and fix it,” she said. Burton had to pay the $75 deductible but says she just went out and bought a new stove. Next, Burton’s furnace started making a lot of noise so she again called the warranty company. A repairman came out but, “He said as long as the furnace was running he can’t do anything. It has to not be running,” she said. The furnace then started overheating so she called again. “He turned the furnace

on and said, ‘As long as the furnace is running there’s nothing I can do.’ I said, ‘Would you like a Coke because after it kicks on the second or third time it’s going to overheat?’ Well, it did,” said Burton. Burton was then told the repairman couldn’t fix the furnace because he couldn’t get parts since it was too old. But now, in the warm summer weather, the air conditioner is also overheating so she can’t get her house cool. “I thought it was going to be a great company for $40 a month, $75 deductible,” said Burton. “It’s about saving me money, but appar-

ently it’s about making them money.” The company wouldn’t respond to my phone calls so I had Burton file a complaint with the Better Business Bureau. The company has responded to complaints filed with the bureau. After Burton filed her complaint, the warranty company sent out another repairman to check the furnace. He found the problem was with the blower motor and it had to be replaced. Burton had to pay $500, but the new motor solved the problem. Now Burton is trying to get back that $500 from the warranty compa-

ny. The Better Business Bureau says it’s received about 700 complaints about this company from people who say the firm would not pay for needed repairs. In response, the company says consumers need to read the contract thoroughly and fully understand exactly what’s included and what’s excluded. Bottom line, you need to be very careful before agreeing to any of these warranties. Howard Ain answers consumer complaints weekdays on WKRC-TV Local 12. Write to him at 12 WKRC-TV, 1906 Highland Ave., Cincinnati 45219.

Rub shoulders with old-fashioned pork barbeque Our little flock of chickens has one less member today. And it’s my fault. Last night, I forgot to lock the chickens in their pen. This morning, when I went out to feed them, I Rita saw a trail white Heikenfeld of feathers Rita’s kitchen l e a d i n g down to the river bank. Not a good sign – I immediately thought “raccoons.” And that’s how our only white feathered hen, “Whitey,” as the kids called her, met her untimely demise. So you can understand when I say I just don’t feel like sharing any recipes today for, you guessed it: chicken.

Easy pork shoulder for barbeque

There’s an old-fashioned type of meat that folks are starting to rediscover. It’s fresh pork shoulder (and when it’s smoked it’s sometimes called cottage ham or smoked pork butt). I use it to make goetta since it has a nice layer of fat which keeps the goetta moist. (See sidebar on Glier’s Goettafest.) I also use it to make barbeque. It’s so delicious that I’ll save some of the roasted


Pour dressing over cabbage mixture. Cover and refrigerate four hours or overnight. Stir before serving.

Tips from Rita’s garden


Rita clips the blooms off fresh basil to keep the plant focused on its leaves. taste, and heat until hot throughout.

Rita’s do-ahead marinated slaw

This is delicious with the barbecue, and a bit different than the norm.


Combine and set aside while making dressing:

Rita picking berries at her elderberry bush. pork to serve for supper before I make the barbecue, and serve it with boiled noodles. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Score the fat on top of a boneless pork shoulder, about 5 to 7 pounds. Season with salt and pepper and place, fat side up, in a Dutch oven or roasting pan with about a cup of water. Roast until some of the fat has melted,


about an hour. Remove pan and reduce temperature to 350 degrees. Tightly cover pan with foil or a lid. Cook about three to four hours more, or until meat is tender enough to shred with forks. When cool enough to handle, remove fat if you want and shred meat into bite size pieces. This freezes well. To serve, stir in favorite barbecue sauce to

6-8 cups shredded cabbage or cole slaw mix 2 carrots, sliced thin or shredded 1 bell pepper, chopped 1 cup onion, chopped


Bring to a boil, then simmer, uncovered, 10-15 minutes or so, until slightly thickened: 1 cup sugar 1 cup cider vinegar 1 ⁄2 cup water 2 teaspoons mustard seed (optional but good) or 1 ⁄2 teaspoon celery seed (also optional)

Harvesting basil: Be sure and snip the flower heads that are forming on basil. Otherwise, energy will go into the flowers and seeds, and leaf production will suffer. The flowers of all culinary herbs are edible. (I do let one plant go to seed for next year’s crop). Roasted whole plum tomatoes: These make a delicious sauce for pasta. You can also freeze them up to six months. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Toss tomatoes with a bit of olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Lay in single layer on rimmed baking sheets. If you have some fresh thyme, tuck several sprigs in between the tomatoes. Bake until they burst, about 45 to 60 minutes, rotating pans halfway through. Let cool, then coarsely chop.

Drake Planetarium presents laser shows


Cyclists celebrate in Hyde Park at their final rest stop in the Pan Ohio Hope Ride in August 2008. This is the fourth year for the ride, which benefits the American Cancer Society's Hope Lodges.

Terrace Park man rides across Ohio for cancer society

Steve Rucker was in the mood for a challenge and when his nephew suggested the Pan Ohio Hope Ride he was game. Rucker, who lives in Terrace Park, had been cycling for years and didn’t expect his first Pan Ohio Hope Ride in 2008 to be so difficult. “I knew it was going to be long, but I thought I could ride 20 miles a day (during training) and be OK,” he said. “My legs were like rubber after the ride and it took me two or three days to recover.” The annual ride from Cleveland to Cincinnati took place this year July 29-Aug. 1, and raised money for the American Cancer Society. Peter Osborne, public relations director for southwest Ohio chapters, said last year’s Hope Ride raised $256,000 for the American Cancer Society’s Hope Lodges and other critical cancer support projects. “I think we’re finding that a lot of people who enjoy cycling have also been personally touched by cancer,” Osborne said, adding that there will be 360 riders on this year’s tour. “They’ve really rallied around this and it’s their chance to fight back against the disease.” This is Rucker’s third tour and he is riding in memory of a colleague who lost the battle with cancer. Rucker said that even though the 70-miles-perday pace is challenging, the camaraderie with fellow cyclists – some who are cancer survivors – helps him push through. “The people at the Hope

The American Cancer Society’s Hope Lodge provides a comfortable place to stay for patients who have to travel for cancer treatment. Patients and caregivers can stay at no cost and the American Cancer Society estimates that the Hope Lodges have saved guests millions of dollars in lodging costs in the past decade. The Cincinnati Hope Lodge is located in the Avondale area.

Lodges have exhausted themselves in this fight (against cancer) and this is a way to give back and help them,” he said. “It’s an eye-opening experience.” Rucker said he plans to make the Hope Ride an annual tradition for many years to come.

(July 24, 1938 - July 14, 2010) FOUNDER OF GAMCO CONCRETE FORMS AND ACCESSORIES George A. More, 71, of Indian Hill, passed away July 14, 2010, after battling Parkinson's disease for over a decade. He leaves his wife of 47 years, Sally (Reuther) More and four children; Lisa Bienstock (Antony), Brian More (Katie), Julie Mozeliak (John), and Michael More (Tamara), also ten grandchildren and many relatives and friends. He was predeceased by his brother, Fred More and his parents. He was born July 24, 1938, in Richland Center, Wisconsin, the son of George and Irene More. George was a resident of Cincinnati since 1970. After graduating from the University of Wisconsin in 1960 with a Bachelor of Science Degree, he became a secondary math teacher when he met his wife, Sally, whom he married in 1963. In 1964, they moved to Chicago where George became a salesman for Symons Corporation and their branch manager in 1970. George had a lifelong passion for mathematics and engineering.

Mariemont native leaving imprint at museum Elana Winget, a Mariemont native, is taking a “hands-on” approach to local history. As a registration intern at Cincinnati Museum Center, Winget spends her days working with and categorizing museum artifacts prior to their display. The Cincinnati Museum Center’s Internship Program provides an opportunity for higher education students to explore the many facets of the museum and nonprofit world. Interns receive educational and professional development in their department of choice. An art history major and 2010

graduate of Miami University, Winget’s chosen field, registration, involves exploring a “flat file,” or a file filled with two dimensional art Winget work, often ensuring the pieces are properly categorized. While most of the pieces she sees were once simply posters or advertisements, they are now considered pieces of art. Although Winget tends to prefer contemporary art, her work this summer has granted a new appreciation for older art forms.

“Some of the posters I see are really detailed, and to think they could create that 100 or 200 years ago is pretty neat,” she said. “I think some of the really old advertisements are more interesting than what we see today.” A particularly enjoyable aspect of her work is the independent nature of her projects. While she has significant interaction with museum-center employees, her position at the Geier Collections and Research Center, the center separate from the museum center building in which artifacts are stored, allows her the freedom to think and act independently.

“It’s definitely pretty quiet, but I’d rather behind the scenes,” she said. “I didn’t know much about how museums were run, but it’s really neat to see the artifacts outside of an exhibit, and experience the work that goes into running a museum that visitors don’t see.” As Winget’s favorite portion of the Cincinnati Museum Center has always been the Cincinnati History Museum, which details the events and changes of the Cincinnati area, working with local artifacts has been particularly rewarding. “Most of the art work is of

Cincinnati stuff. There are some really neat drawings and paintings of Mount Adams,” she said. “It’s neat to see how Cincinnati has changed.” For Winget, her time at the museum center has not only provided practical experience, but has influenced her conception of contemporary art and events. “It’s really neat to work with older art mediums,” she said. “I like working with the posters because they weren’t created to be art work, but now we categorize them as art work. It makes me wonder what things today will be considered art in the future.”
