Most receptive to Delta Avenue ‘road diet’ plan

The city of Cincinnati is proposing a “road diet” for Delta Avenue between Columbia Parkway and Erie Avenue. It includes reducing travel lanes from two in each direction to one, adding a center left-turn lane and bike lanes. On-street parking would stay in this plan. LISA WAKELAND/THE COMMUNITY PRESS

buffer between the parked cars and moving traffic. “As a resident living (on Delta) there is too much traffic on the road, and I think this is a great idea,” said Keith Hall. “These are residential streets and I think it’s going to help tremendously.” Hall said these changes, especially reducing the number of travel lanes, might deter people from using Delta Avenue as a cut-through route and curb speeding vehicles. But Scott Wahle, who also lives on Delta Avenue, said he doesn’t see how this will help and reducing travel lanes will just cause more congestion on

the street because of the volume of traffic that uses the road on a daily basis. Williams said the plan is to open the lanes back to two as they approach Mt. Lookout square, the business district at the intersection of Delta and Linwood avenues, and keep it one lane as traffic leaves the square. City engineers have conducted traffic observations, looked at traffic models and analyzed safety and accident data, Williams said, and are confident this would work well. Resident Tony Raabe said he’d like to see a side-by-side comparison of the existing and

proposed configuration to make sure this is really the best solution for the problem. Raabe also said he is concerned this plan may have unintended consequences such as increasing traffic on the side streets like Hardisty and Glengyle avenues because people would cut through those streets to avoid slow or backed up traffic on Delta Avenue. Jonathan Hay, who lives in Columbia Tusculum but attended the recent meeting, said his neighborhood supports this idea of having bike lanes along Delta Avenue. They’d like to see See PLAN, Page A2

Dewey’s Pizza re-opens in Oakley By Forrest Sellers

OAKLEY — The newly remodeled Oakley Dewey’s Pizza is now bigger than before. Regional manager Andy Smith said the restaurant is about 8 feet wider. “(This) gives us a bigger waiting area, a bigger dining room (and) bigger bathrooms,” he said. “(It) was remodeled for more space.” New flooring was also added, he said.

MT. LOOKOUT — Delta Avenue could look very different next spring. The city of Cincinnati plans to resurface the road, between Erie Avenue and Columbia Parkway, and so far the “road diet” proposal is receiving positive feedback from residents. Plans to re-stripe Delta Avenue include reducing travel lanes from two in each direction to one in each direction with a center left-turn lane, said Bryan Williams, a supervising engineer for the city of Cincinnati’s transportation and engineering department. It also keeps on-street parking for residents and adds a new, 5-foot-wide bike lane in each travel direction. Williams said this plan would help reduce vehicle speed, make it easier for people to turn onto Delta Avenue from driveways or side streets without traffic signals and keep traffic flowing because vehicles turning left will be out of travel lanes. “I can’t pull out of my driveway at any time, people don’t do the speed limit, and I can’t see (oncoming traffic) because of the parked cars,” Carol Potkanski, who lives on Delta Avenue, said at a recent Mt. Lookout Community Council meeting about the current situation. “I’m totally for this.” The new bike lanes would not only attract new residents to the neighborhood, Potkanski said, they would also provide a


The restaurant had been closed since remodeling began Sept. 30. The restaurant reopened Oct. 24. The restaurant has a seating capacity of about 90, he said. The Oakley store has the distinction of being the first Dewey’s Pizza. It opened 15 years ago, according to Smith. Dewey’s Pizza has 17 locations in Cincinnati, Dayton, Cleveland, Columbus and St. Louis, Mo. The Oakley restaurant is located at 3014 Madison Road.

Bill would give public landowners a seat at the table in annexations By Lisa Wakeland

State lawmakers are trying to change the law to give public landowners a say in expedited annexations. Ohio Rep. Peter Stautberg (R-27th District) recently introduced a new bill that would bring annexation rules back to

'=O;N48AN GT]7 \V1N] IV0]8+]O 2<UH &26"E62 *+C!+CC"E+5/ %A)+<"4 (6/E+C"E+AC #EA263 *&& +%& !)+&-+ ,%.#-+$)- %"$& '&("./

where they were more than a decade ago. The original intent of the law, Stautberg said at a recent Anderson Township trustees meeting, was to not allow townships to use roadways to block annexations. But the wording in that bill made it so “any land owned by a political subdivision had no rights in annexation,” Stautberg said. That meant cemeteries, parks, greenspace and other public property fell into the same category as a roadway. The issue has played out locally during the past couple years as Newtown tried to use expedited annexation to take over the Little Miami Golf Center and Bass Island Park, both in Anderson Township, to get to Fifty West Brewing Co. and Hahana Beach on Wooster Pike in Columbia Township. Bob Slattery, who owns those two businesses,

townships and the Three Rivers School District. New levies will be on the ballot in North Bend, North College Hill, Terrace Park, the Deer Park School District and the Oak Hills School District. The first two columns identify the taxing authority and the purpose of the levy. Also listed is the requested millage, the type of levy, its duration, the current tax on a $100,000 market value property, and the estimated annual amount the tax would raise if approved by the voters. The estimated annual cost to taxpayer column refers to an owner-occupied residence and assumes the 10 percent and 2.5 percent state reductions and the county’s stadium sales tax reduction for renewals. The calculations for new levies do not reflect these reductions. They have been eliminated by the state legislature for new levies.

originally wanted to be annexed into Newtown but has since dropped his reStautberg quest. With this type of annexation, neither the Great Parks of Hamilton County, which owns both the golf center and Bass Island, nor Anderson Township, had a voice in the process. Stautberg said the new proposal would roll back the language in the current law and give public landowners “a right to say yes or no to expedited annexation.” That would mean park districts, townships and school boards would be able to approve or reject annexations of publicly owned land, and Stautberg said he expects this will be a battle as it moves through the legislative process.

“It’s astonishing to me why it’s taken this long for townships and their taxpayers to be counted at the table as a land owner,” said Anderson Township Trustee Peggy Reis. “That’s the one compromise we can’t afford to lose.” She asked Stautberg to pay special attention to the bill as it nears its final form to make sure nothing detrimental to townships was added or changed at the last minute. “All we’ve ever asked for is to be on a level playing field,” Township Trustee Russ Jackson said. “We’re not asking for special favors. All we want is to be treated like everyone else.” Stautberg said there would be proponent and opponent hearings on the bill, which is currently in the Ohio House’s State and Local Government Committee.

Walnut Hills wanders through the brackets Girls soccer on October run By Scott Springer

WALNUT HILLS — For the second consecutive year, the Walnut Hills High School girls soccer team made the Division I district tournament by defeating Oak Hills. In 2012, it was a 2-1 overtime thriller. This year, it was your routine 3-1 victory at Winton Woods Oct. 21. “They’re a good opponent,” Walnut Hills coach Bob Muro said. “They’re dangerous, really dangerous.” The Lady Eagles got a measure of revenge on Oak Hills for an Aug. 24, 2-1 loss. Muro went out of the Eastern Cincinnati Conference to the Greater Miami Conference several times during the season, facing Fairfield, Sycamore and Lako-

ta West. “That’s why we do this, to prepare us for tournament time,” Muro said. The Oct. 21Oak Hills win put them against a familiar GMC foe in Fairfield Oct. 24. Walnut and Fairfield tied 0-0 Aug. 31. On Oct. 24, Walnut Hills grabbed a 2-0 halftime lead on goals by Alexis Kiehl and Kat Cheng and held on behind Olivia Grondin in goal to end Fairfield’s season and advance as district champions. The Lady Eagles play St. Ursula in a regional semifinal Oct. 29 after deadline. For up-todate results go to “It’s anybody’s game and whoever plays the best game is going to win it,” Muro said of the tournament. Muro’s crew emphasize defense. During the season, only Ross scored three goals on the Lady Eagles. “Our back four has done

really well,” Muro said. “Loren Richardson, Scout LaCoe, Maddie Hordinski and Kate Warren, who was hurt for a long time, have made a big difference.” Walnut’s goalkeeper is junior Grondin. She shut out Ursuline, Anderson, Fairfield, Glen Este and Mariemont during the season and now Fairfield in the postseason. “She’s been our only keeper,” Muro said. “We used to have two and one had a knee injury.” All four of the Walnut Hills captains are going on to play college soccer. Midfielder Gabrielle Brokamp is going to UAB (Alabama-Birmingham), forwards Alexis and Kaitlynn Kiehl will play at Dayton and defender Morgan Shafer is heading to Northern Kentucky. “They’re very well respected and they get along with all of the girls,” Muro said. “Even though they probably are the

best players out there, it doesn’t get to their head. They’re very low key in what they’re doing and give good advice.” Senior Kat Cheng is Walnut’s second-leading scorer behind Alexis Kiehl and she also may play collegiately. “We don’t know where she is going yet,” Muro said. “She’s first in her class and she can pretty much go anywhere she wants right now. I think she wants to play. I think a lot of it depends on where she goes to school.” Other seniors on their final run for Walnut Hills are Emily Roemhild, Emma Van Bakel and Chloe LaCoe. Ten juniors and two sophomores are slated to return for 2014. “This has been a great group,” Muro said. “It’s been to watch them grow. They’ve been playing together, most of them, since they were freshmen.”

Bulldogs fall in regional field hockey against UA ONLINE EXTRA

By Mark D. Motz




Sports wisdom calls a tie kissing your sister. But what about your actual sister school? Especially when a tie isn’t an option. Ursuline Academy and St. Ursula Academy – both under the auspices of Ursuline nuns who were founded more than 570 years ago by Italian St. Angela Merici – share a lot of traits. Among them, membership in the Girls Greater Catholic League, where both achieve regular and remarkable success. Since 1990, the two have combined for 28 Ohio Division I state team titles in golf, volleyball and swimming alone. Many others athletes – including current Ursuline senior Mevish Safdar in tennis and St. Ursula junior Annie Heffernan in track and cross country – own individual state championships. The two schools met for the Oct. 23 field hockey regional

semifinals – a sport where SUA won the 2010 state title and UA reached the final four last season. Ursuline won 1-0 on a first half goal by junior forward Ana Gonzalez Del Rey. Senior goalie Katie Polson anchored the defense that protected the lead, staving off repeated penalty corners by the Bulldogs. “It really is like playing your sister,” said SUA field hockey coach Sarah Catlin of competing against Ursuline. “I think there’s a lot of respect for one another. We draw out the best in each other.” Lions coach Elli Workum agreed. “They play us up higher than any other team we face,” she said. “I’d say three quarters of our team is speed and they do a very nice job trying to negate that, taking away our lines. We always had to get it through 10

players.” There were some tears on the SUA sideline as the season came to a close. “This is disappointing and this will hurt and you have to let it,” Catlin told her team in the postgame huddle. “But tomorrow you’re still going to be St. Ursula Bulldogs, you’re always a part of this team and this family. This has been one of the most fun teams I ever had to coach.” Gonzalez Del Rey had fun making the goal. “My teammates set me up for it perfectly,” she said. “It’s awesome, the best feeling in the world, especially against (SUA). They’re such good competitors. “(Freshman forward) Jillian Shive made a beautiful cross to me and I just tipped it and it went right back into the back of the cage. We all want to do those big hits and just a little tip is all you need.” Both coaches agreed it came down to a matter of a break. “I’ve been talking to (Gonzalez Del Rey) all year about not swinging hard,” Workum said.

“That was a perfect example of being in the right pace and just getting a touch and not trying to crush the ball.” Catlin said, “Sometimes in field hockey you play great and don’t get that one bounce you need to win. That’s what happened tonight. We didn’t get a break. It was a great game between two great teams.”

As of Monday, Oct. 28, there was a 75 percent chance that a team from the Miami Valley Conference will represent southwest Ohio in the OHSAA Division III boys’ soccer state semifinals. Three teams from the MVC won district championships on Oct. 26 to advance to the regional semifinals. Defending state champion Summit Country Day, Cincinnati Country Day and Seven Hills are among the final 16 teams in the state playing Division III boys’ soccer this season. Nearly 20 percent of the regional semifinalists come from the same conference in Cincinnati, illustrating how tough and talented the MVC is year in and year out. “The league has always been competitive, as historically the MVC has the very best coaches in Cincinnati,” said Summit Country Day head coach Barnard Baker. “Coaches like Terry Nicholl from Seven Hills and Greg Hirschauer from CCD always makes the title very difficult to attain.” The Summit won its sixthstraight district championship. The Silver Knights have won district titles in six of Baker’s seven seasons at the helm. After losing in the Round of 16 in three straight seasons from 2009-2011, Summit broke through with four-straight shutouts in regional and state play last season to claim the state title. The Silver Knights (13-2-4) are prepared for postseason play after competing in the MVC and against top competition from throughout Ohio during the regular season. The team also faced some of the top teams in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Kentucky during the season. “We actually compete outside of Cincinnati more than most schools. Along with our MVC opponents, and a couple of out-ofconference teams, we’ve tried to play the top teams from the Dayton, Columbus, Toledo and Cleveland areas,” Baker said. “We have also traveled outside of Ohio to play state champions from Indiana, Kentucky, Pennsylvania and New Jersey. Most bigger schools avoid playing us, so we opt to travel to find the very best teams to compete against.” Seven Hills (13-2-4) played Summit Country Day to a scoreless draw in the team’s only regular season meeting back on Sept. 7. The Stingers lost at Cincinnati Country Day late in the season. That loss, coupled with Summit’s defeat of the Indians Sept. 26, clinched the MVC title for Summit. The regular season competition prepared the MVC opponents well for postseason play. Seven Hills won its first district title since 2009 and Cincinnati Country Day won the first boys’ soccer district title in program history. “I feel that what makes the MVC so competitive is that there is no particular style,” said Baker. “The teams and styles change with the talent levels. No one really re-invents the wheel. We all steal ideas from each other. That’s part of the joy of coaching soccer.” It is impressive that three of the four Region 12 finalists are from Cincinnati (the fourth is Springfield Catholic Central). It is remarkable that three of the See SOCCER, Page A6

St. Xavier stresses more than just winning on the pitch ONLINE EXTRAS

By Tom Skeen


For an interview with seniors Austin Harrell and Jack Caudill, visit

It’s about more than just winning for St. Xavier High School soccer coach Brian Schaeper. Building upon the foundation laid by his predecessor Henry Ahrens, Schaeper continued the ways that have led to seven consecutive winning seasons and three straight Greater Catholic League South titles. “(Henry) built a very successful program that I think focused on the right things and not just winning,” Schaeper said. “Winning was a bi-product of that and I’ve really continued that tradition of doing things off the field that build the team experienced.” His ways are working right now as the Bombers (10-3-2) have won nine straight games heading in to the postseason. Despite starting the season 1-3-2,

the Bombers stuck to their guns and eventually started to find the back of the net. His methods worked this season as his Bombers finished the season 124-2, including an 11-game win streak before bowing out in the postseason with a 2-1 loss to Lakota West Oct. 26 in a Division I district final. “… It was just that final component that wasn’t finishing and we kept plugging away,” the coach said. “We had to believe in ourselves, had to wrestle with the little moments and so we’ve cleaned that up a lot.” Much of their success can be attributed to the play of seniors Jack Caudill of Hyde Park and Aus-

tin Harrell of Mason. The team captains and center midfielders’ play may not show up in the stats, but it allows Schaeper to impose his team’s will on their opponent and not vice versa. “We’re able to set the

tone in most games,” Schaeper said, who coached St. X’s junior varsity team the last seven years. The Bombers’ biggest offensive weapon wasn’t even a starter. It’s not a talent issue; it’s a person-

fresh off the bench and having a knack of finding the right place.” While Schaeper wasn’t able to take his guys to state, there were more important goals at hand. “I tell them at the beginning of the year and repeatedly throughout the year that the main reason I’m doing this is because I want them to be better men. The result on the field, I love it, but it’s a small product of what we hope for.”

nel issue. Senior Kiley Sunderhaus, who had three goals and an assist on the season, is the starter and used his speed to wear down an opponent and free things up for senior Ryan Hadley , who led St. X with 10 goals in the regular season. “(Sunderhaus) is the fastest guy on the team and he’s really stretching the field,” the coach said. “He’s lightning fast, so defenses (have to track him) and now Ryan is coming in

Bengals first season started in 1968

As the Bengals continue their 45th season, some might recall their first in 1968, when veteran coach Paul Brown struggled with an expansion team in the old American Football League. Brown’s stellar record in Cleveland abruptly ended when owner Art Modell let him go. After a frustrating hiatus on the bench, Brown returned to the game, this time in Cincinnati. The new franchise’s name came from a short-lived Cincinnati Bengals team from the late 1930s. This expansion team drafted a few veteran free agents and several rising stars from the college ranks. Brown wanted more pliable rookies for loyalty and to build a future rather than talented prima donnas for short term


gain. Early recruits included running back Paul Robinson from Arizona State, AllAmerican David center Bob Wolfford COMMUNITY PRESS Johnson from Tennessee, GUEST COLUMNIST and Utah receiver Bob Trumpy. They also took experienced Miami Dolphin quarterback John Stofa. Coach Bill Walsh joined Brown’s staff a decade before re-shaping the game at San Francisco. Brown set up training camp at Wilmington College, where he whittled down the original 125 recruits to 75 players. By their first exhibi-

tion game against Kansas City, Sports Illustrated called the squad “ragged and outmanned.” They lost 38-14. The team went 2-3 in the preseason. They gave Cincinnatians hope in the opening drive of their first regular season game at San Diego. Quarterback Dewey Warren replaced the injured Stofa and took the team 72 yards. But the Chargers went on to win 29-13. The first regular season home game against the Denver Broncos followed in Clifton (the Bengals played its first two seasons at Nippert Stadium). On an unseasonably cold mid-September afternoon hot chocolate rivaled beer sales. Just over 25,000 fans attended. The UC cheerleaders led the cheers.

“I coached myself before I came,” a realistic Brown told an AP sportswriter. “We’re an expansion team…we have a tough nut to crack.” The Cincinnati Enquirer’s Dick Forbes wrote his players “are as nervous as a June bride.” The band from Brown’s old Massillon school performed at halftime of a scoreless game. In the second half, Bengal Dale Livingston kicked a 49yard field goal, and then a healed Stofa hit Trumpy for a 58-yard TD. Denver then matched them with a field goal and a TD pass. The turning point came when they went for a first down from their own 46 yard line. “We felt we had to take the chance,” Brown told the Enquirer. “It was a big turn-

ing point, and of course the fans wanted it.” They finished the Broncos 24-10. In the locker room Brown toasted the team with a Coke, “To one in a row, men.” The Bengals finished with a typical expansion-team record, 3-11, and last in their division. Running back Paul Robinson rushed for over 1,000 yards and earned AFL rookie of the year. Trumpy led the team in receptions. And future Bengals coach Sam Wyche served as another backup quarterback in with 63 percent completions and nearly 500 total passing yards. David Wolfford teaches government and politics at Mariemont High School.

“Yes, I do support expansion of Medicaid. What’s amazing is a conservative governor going out of his way to help the poor and elderly in Ohio!” TRog

ing the governor’s motives. I hope it is based on both the economics and the humanitarian reasons he has cited, but this may be a ploy to get the middle vote in 2014. “Kasich has demonstrated his ultra-conservative leanings with much of the legislation he has backed in the last couple of years. At least one was overwhelmingly repealed by the voters of Ohio who demonstrated that we are not Texas and the rights of the citizens should be a priority. “Let’s keep Ohio free.” J.Z.

“It would be better if the legislature would pass this, but since they won't, I salute Kasich for getting it done. This may be the first action he has taken that I agree with. “Access to health insurance is critical for everyone. Time to put the rhetoric aside and take care of people.”

Lauren Wiley started the business just 14 months ago out of the home she grew up in. She's standing in her basement where the production takes place. THE ENQUIRER/LIZ DUFOUR

Child’s interest grows to success By John Faherty


auren Wiley remembers exactly when she realized she was in real trouble. It was Nov. 24 of last year and Wiley’s new business, Whipped Goods, was two months old. Things had been going fine until that day, known in retail as “Small Business Saturday.” That morning, the orders started coming in. By the day’s end, more than 300 customers had ordered Wiley’s products. Two days later, “Cyber Monday,” it happened again. “I remember sitting there, at the end of the Monday, and saying to myself: ‘I am going to need some help,’” Wiley, 26, said from her home in Madisonville. Whipped Goods started as a skin and hair care company. The market line has grown since then, but not the model. Wiley utilizes cooking techniques – mostly whipping, hence the company name – to transform organic and “raw” materials into creams and lotions and soaps. This company is a product of the confidence of its creator. Wiley believed in what she was making. She was certain that Cincinnati was the right place to build a company like this. And she hoped people would want to spend their money on a company they felt good about. Even one that made nearly everything in a kitchen mixing bowl. “I’m that girl from Ohio who makes everything by hand,” Wiley said. “This company is designed for the woman who wants to know the origin of her products. For women who like the narrative of a product.” Wiley remembers sitting in front of her grandmother’s mirror, with all its makeup and lotions, when she was as young as 4 years old. Her mom and dad let her play in the kitchen, trying to make scented oils, as she was growing up. But after graduating from the University of Cincinnati with a degree in urban studies from the College of Design, Architecture, Art and Planning, Wiley was no longer a little girl playing with makeup. She was a young woman who needed to

earn a living. So while she made hair and skin products for herself, she started working at School Outfitters in Norwood, which furnishes schools. She learned about e-commerce and marketing and customer service. Wiley has always been an avid user of social media; by her mid-20s she had more than 5,000 followers on Twitter alone. Early in 2012, she told a friend, on Twitter, that she would make her a body butter. As soon as Wiley hit send, people started tweeting her that they wanted some, too. And that they would pay for it. Wiley saw an opportunity to do something she liked and make some money on the side. From August until October 2012, she sold school furnishings during the day and made and sold beauty products at night. She told her father she could make a living on Whipped Goods. “I told her to keep working and to show me her numbers after eight weeks,” Robert Dog-

gett said. “After six weeks she showed me, and I told her to give notice. This was what she should be doing.” So she did. And because she was working from home, the house she grew up in that she and her husband bought from her parents, because she was doing everything herself, because the raw materials are not expensive, she could start up Whipped Goods without going into debt. “We’ve been profitable from the first day,” Wiley says proudly. “I knew there was a market. It already existed.” Wiley buys her grape oil, avocado oil and butters from restaurant supply companies. She mixes them into what she calls a

souffle, adding scents to make them smell just right, often using lavender and ginger and eucalyptus from her own garden. “Whipping changes everything,” Wiley said. Then she puts them into containers using pastry bags so they look beautiful. And this, she knew, was important. Customers like to feel they are indulging themselves. Wiley’s customers started taking photos of their new hair product or skin lotion and placing them on Pinterest or Instagram. Her customers were becoming her marketers. “If it were not for Twitter and Instagram, I would not be where I am today,” she said. “It opens so many markets. To date, we’ve had as many orders from Paris as we’ve had from Cleveland.” Now Wiley’s father works for

the company. So does her husband, Grafton Wiley, and her best friend. She will need to add others, she said, for the upcoming holiday season. “The day after our one-year anniversary, we had our 10,000th order,” Wiley said. Then she revealed her competitive nature. “I was disappointed because I really wanted to get there in one year.” The products are made in the basement and boxed on the first floor. Orders are taken in the living room. The business is taking over their home, but Wiley and her husband have drawn a line at the stairs. Upstairs remains home. And sometimes, she goes up there just to think. “When I have time to think about it, it’s extremely gratifying. I did this. We did this. It has been a lot of work, but I am very proud.” m

Stir-fry uses last of summer’s bell peppers As I look out my office window, I can see the vegetable garden and the pumpkin patch next to it. The garden is completely finished, not a veggie to be seen. I did pick one last big bunch of zinnias, marigolds and cosmos from the cutting flower row for the kitchen table and was able to save seeds Rita for next Heikenfeld year. We RITA’S KITCHEN still have a good amount of bell peppers, which I used for one of my favorite chicken stir-fries.

Sweet and spicy chicken and veggie stir-fry Amazingly, exotic items like sambal oelek and fish sauce used to be hard to find. Now just about every grocery store carries these. Sambal olelek is a spicy condiment found in the international aisle. Ditto with the fish sauce. I usually stir in more sambal oelek after the stir-fry is done. Feel free to use your favorite vegetables in here. 1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breasts or thighs, cut into bite size pieces and set aside 12 oz. bag fresh stir-fry vegetables or 8 oz. sugar snap peas 1 red bell pepper, sliced 1 ⁄2 medium red onion, sliced


Combine and set aside:

3 tablespoons dark brown sugar 2 tablespoons soy sauce 1 tablespoon fish sauce 1 tablespoon rice vinegar 1 tablespoon sambal oelek 1 tablespoon sesame oil 3 ⁄4 teaspoon cornstarch

For garnish Sliced green onions Dry roasted peanuts

Film a pan with oil and stir-fry chicken several minutes until golden brown and done. Don’t overcook. Remove and set aside. Add a bit more oil and stir-fry veggies for several minutes until crisp tender. Stir in brown sugar mixture; cook a minute until thickened. Stir in chicken and toss to coat. Serve with sesame rice. Serves 3-4.

Sesame rice

Cook your favorite rice and stir in sesame oil and soy sauce to taste. Not too much!

Dinner in a dash: Ravioli with sautéed butternut squash and thyme I love butternut squash. It’s chock full of phytonutrients and antioxidants and is delicious in both sweet and savory dishes. Butternut squash is a bear to try to cut through and peel. What I like to do is poke it all over with a fork, microwave it on high for just a few minutes, use mitts to pull it out (it will be hot) and let it cool. The skin will have softened enough for you to slice

through it without using a machete. ⁄2 medium butternut squash (about 1 pound), peeled and diced into 1⁄2-inch pieces Salt and pepper to taste 2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced 1 tablespoon fresh thyme or up to 1 teaspoon dried thyme (start with 1⁄2 teaspoon and go from there) 16 oz. fresh or frozen cheese ravioli Parmesan cheese for garnish 1

Film pan with oil and add squash. Cook, covered, stirring occasional-

ly, until almost tender. Add garlic and thyme and cook, uncovered, tossing occasionally, until squash is tender and just beginning to brown. Meanwhile, cook ravioli according to package directions. Put ravioli on platter, top with squash mixture and sprinkle generously with Parmesan. Serves 4.

Tip from Rita’s kitchen

Chicken safety: To wash or not. Here’s my take on it: Do not wash chicken. You’ll be splashing more bacteria over the surface of the sink, counter and yourself. No need to worry about bacteria in chicken when it’s cooked to a safe degree. The USDA says to cook a whole chicken to 165 degrees; parts to 165 degrees and ground to 165 degrees. Your visual here is to have the juices run clear when poked

with a fork. For ground chicken, it will be thoroughly cooked with no pink spots.

Safely seasoning raw chicken

Before handling the chicken, mix the seasonings in a little bowl. Discard the leftover seasoning.

ture special guests, giveaways, discounts, and more. Members of the Friends will also receive a 30 percent discount throughout the store from Nov. 1-16. Memberships are available at the door. Stop in the Friends’ Shop any time on Saturday, Nov. 2, to receive a

free “1848 Cincinnati Riverfront Then and Now” poster. With any $3 purchase, receive a library lapel pin. With any $30 purchase, register to win two tickets to “Flashdance the Musical” at the Aronoff Center. Special guests are Christy Connelly, original shop manager; Rosemary

Christy Connelly, of Finneytown, original Friends of the Public Library shop owner, and present shop manager Tracy Lanham, of Milford, get ready for the shop's 30th anniversary. THANKS TO RICHARD HELMES

Auer, Roberta Mattimiro, and Janet Smith – all volunteers at the shop since

1985, and Annette Horowitz, longtime volunteer and assistant manager.
