Fairfax considers memorial for former mayor By Forrest Sellers fsellers@communitypress.com

FAIRFAX — The village may honor a former mayor by installing a memorial. Ted Shannon, who served as mayor of Fairfax for 20 years, died in September. His last term as mayor was in 2011. Village Administrator Jenny Kaminer said council wants to do something in Shannon’s honor. She said this may include installing some type of memorial in recognition of his contributions to the community. This memorial would likely be part of a planned streetscape project. Kaminer said it could be a fountain, a clock tower or stone with an engraved plaque. She said council will discuss different options. “He was probably the first person who spearheaded a streetscape beautification program,” said Kaminer. “He organized the original committee.” The streetscape program has been under discussion since 2010. It will include aesthetic improvements such as new benches, planters and waste receptacles that would be placed along the sidewalks in the Wooster Pike corridor. Kaminer said the streetscape enhancements have been delayed until the first phase of the Wooster Pike revitalization project is completed.

The revitalization project includes reconfiguring Wooster Pike from Meadowlark Lane to the Mariemont corporation line. As Shannon part of this project, the sidewalks will be widened and the width of the lanes reduced. Kaminer said the streetscape project discussions may resume during the second phase of the Wooster Pike revitalization project which includes the installation of cul-de-sacs on several of the streets and the addition of decorative lighting. Phase two of the project will likely start in the spring, said Kaminer, who added that Shannon would appreciate a memorial, but say it’s not necessary. “He’d say there is already a Shannon Way (in the community),” she said. Shannon Way was dedicated as a street in Shannon’s honor in June 2007. Lt. Steven Kelly with the Fairfax Police Department said a memorial for Shannon is appropriate. “It’s a great idea,” he said. Shannon is someone who gave a lot of his time for the community, said Kelly. “He did a lot of great things for the village.”

BECAUSE COMMUNITY MATTERS

OLD SCHOOL, NEW SCHOOL

By Forrest Sellers fsellers@communitypress.com

HYDE PARK — A renovation project at Hyde Park School will be done in phases to accommodate students and staff. The building, which had previously served as a temporary space for Mt. Washington School and Kilgour School, reopened this school year. Work will begin in the coming months to make the building more energy efficient. The first phase of the pro-

Principal Tianay Amat-Outlaw. “If we did not take that approach the building would not have been open for the community.” Michael Albrecht, maintenance supervisor for the Cincinnati Public Schools Facilities Department, said the renovations are for energy efficiency. Albrecht said the renovations will include installing new windows and exterior doors. The current one-pane See SCHOOL, Page A2

The Mental Health and Recovery Services Board oversees 50 contract agencies with about 80 percent of those working with patients with mental illness.

agency if it fails: Clients would lose access to treatment services. » What happens at the agency if it passes: The majority of services will continue. Because the levy is bringing in fewer dollars than before, however, cuts in services are certain. Crisis services, criminal justice programs and housing program are among the services that will be impacted, officials have said. » Groups pushing for it: Hamilton County Board of Commissioners; AFL-CIO; Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber; National Alliance on Mental Illness of Hamilton County; Hamilton County Democratic Party; Urban League of Greater Cincinnati » Groups against it: None known. » Last passed: This levy has been in place since1980, last passing five years ago with 55 percent of the vote. » Websites for more information: www.mentalhealthworks.org, www.mhrsb.org, www.nami.org, or www.centralclinic.org.

This geothermal system will be used to heat and cool the building. Albrecht said the building’s electrical system will also be updated. During the summer, the gymnasium and kitchen areas will be renovated. It’s absolutely wonderful to have “a green school,” said Amat-Outlaw. Amat-Outlaw said she is also pleased the original

design of the school will be maintained as part of the renovations. Albrecht said the entire project will cost an estimated $5.8 million and will be funded through a low-interest loan through the state. As part of these renovations, Albrecht said Cincinnati Public Schools will have the capability to monitor energy savings throughout the year.

Columbia Twp. promotes increased recycling rdowdy@communitypress.com

COLUMBIA TWP. — Resi-

dents in Columbia Township are getting some special attention from Hamilton County. Megan Hummel, public relations coordinator for the Hamilton County Solid Waste District, said the district is targeting the township along with about 20 other communities in the county to promote increased recycling. Hummel said communities being targeted have less than 25 percent recycling rates. “We are basically focusing on awareness-building and education,” she said. Township Administrator Michael Lemon said he recently met with the Solid Waste District about the upcoming promotion, which includes a focus on community recycling rates through radio and television advertisements. He said with the county turning its attention to Columbia Township it would be a good time for the township to build on that and commu-

Fatal accident

MADISONVILLE — A 40-year-old motorcyclist who was not wearing a helmet died in a two-vehicle crash near the intersection of Madison and Red Bank roads Oct. 22, Cincinnati police said. Donald Varner II was heading east on Madison Road on his motorcycle when he struck a1994 Toyota Camry turning west onto the street. He was thrown from his bike and severely injured. He died at University Hospital. Speed appears to be a factor. The cause of the crash remains under investigation. The other motorist was not injured.

nicate with residents about the importance of recycling. Lemon said increased reLemon cycling rates among residents can lead to more money in the township’s coffers. “That money we receive from recycling goes back into the waste levy fund,” Lemon said. The township receives money from the county based on the amount of recycling the community does in a given year. In 2011, the township received $3,561 for recycling rates. Resident Brian Andre, who recycles regularly, said the township could get its recycling rates up with more education for residents. He said a flier or letter sent to residents about the importance of recycling, which range from conservation of landfills to actual cash in the township’s pocket, could go a long way toward increased recycling.

Trail group seeks Mariemont support By Lisa Wakeland lwakeland@communitypress.com

The Wasson Way trail project is trying to boost support in communities outside the city of Cincinnati. Jay Andress, who is spearheading the effort to convert 6.5 miles of unused

railroad track into a recreational, paved hike and bike trail, recently spoke to a small group of Mariemont residents about the project. Mariemont, he said, is a vital link for the project, which aims to connect Xavier University to the Little Miami Scenic Trail. The

trail would run along the existing rail line owned by Norfolk Southern, and the tracks haven’t been used for several years. “We can have them abandoned forever or turn them into a bike trail,” he said. The plan for this area is to have the Wasson Way

thing,” Andress said. One of the biggest hurdles has been convincing the railroad to sell the right of way, but Andress said the city of Cincinnati is now negotiating with the company for the property. Mariemont resident Shannon Moore asked how the trail would coincide with future plans for the Eastern Corridor or light rail. The Ohio Department of Transportation has indicated that one option for the relocated state Route 32 is to cross the Little Miami River through the village’s south 80 acres. There is also the possibility of light rail using those tracks. Mariemont has opposed the relocated state Route 32 plan, and Moore said more residents would rather have a bike trail in that area than a four-lane road. But Andress said neither of those Eastern Corridor components should factor in to or delay the Wasson Way trail plan. “We want to do this now, and we don’t want to wait

for the Eastern Corridor to get their plans done,” he said. “Let us build it now, and if you have something you want to do in the future we can move the trail. It’s not that hard.” Andress also said having the support of Mariemont residents and cooperation of village officials would help the plan continue moving forward. Village resident Nicole Christ said there is a lot of interest in this project, and it would benefit the entire area surrounding the Wasson Way trail. “You see how many bikers are on the roads, and there are a lot of people who are passionate about trying to get more trails because it’s the safest way to ride,” she said. Andress said the trail is expected to cost about $7.5 million and would be funded by a combination of grants, state or federal funding and private donations.

Mariemont schools’ forecast includes levy By Lisa Wakeland

lwakeland@communitypress.com

Officials in the Mariemont City Schools are projecting mostly flat income and an increase in expenses during the next several years. The Board of Education recently adopted its fiveyear forecast, which is an annual financial outlook

document required by the state of Ohio. This forecast assumes voters will renew an operating levy expected to be on the ballot in 2014. The actual amount of the levy is not set, but Treasurer Natalie Lucas said projections are based on current property values. “What (the levy) does is keep our budget growth at

or below 3 percent,” she said. Another impact on the revenue side is the uncer-

tainty surrounding future state funding, which has been declining in the past several years. “We left it flat in the forecast because we have no idea yet what the governor is going to present for his funding formula,” Lucas said. That formula often is tweaked based on who is governor, and she said there have been multiple changes during the past decade. On the expense side of the five-year forecast, salaries and benefits are expected to increase, as are costs for purchased services that include utilities and custodial or transportation contracts.

The forecast also shows $475,000 of additional spending cuts in the next four fiscal years with the largest – $300,000 – expected in the fiscal year that corresponds with the 20142015 school year. This forecast includes a 1 percent increase to the salary schedule, which has been held flat for two years, and a 6 percent increase in fringe benefits such as health insurance premiums and retirement benefits. Though the salary schedule is projected to grow, Lucas said the forecast does not obligate the Board of Education to grant that raise. There is also a projected

1.5 percent increase in salaries for teachers or staff who move around in the salary schedule based on additional years of experience or education, Lucas explained. Board President Bill Flynn said that this forecast is very responsive to the goals they set in trying to limit budget growth. “It’s assuming we’re flat lining on revenue from the state, and expense growth is driven by items that are solely out of our control … except for modest, discretionary personnel increases,” he said. Ohio requires school boards to submit the fiveyear forecast in October and update it in May.

TIPP CITY — The girls of the Mariemont High School volleyball team didn’t end the season the way they would’ve liked, but the 2012 campaign proved to be one exciting ride. Mariemont fell to CHCA in the Tippecanoe Division III district final 25-14, 25-13, 14-25, 25-22, Oct. 27. Head coach Ford Taylor said he felt sorry for his team, because after such a successful season, the Warriors couldn’t get anything going during the first two games. “They couldn’t do anything right, and CHCA played really well. They earned it,” Taylor said.

CommunityPress.com

The Warriors found their groove in the third game but came up short when the two teams traded punches in game four. Despite the results, Taylor said he’s proud of how his team performed. “It was a tough ending…You can still say they’ve had a great season — the best season in Mariemont history,” he said. “They have nothing to be ashamed of.” The Lady Warriors ended the season ranked No. 1 in the final Enquirer Division III coaches’ poll after placing second in the Cincinnati Hills League with a mark of 18-5 (10-4). No team in Mariemont history has ever won a district championship, according to Taylor. The 2012 version of the Warriors are

just the third team in program history to reach the district finals. Throughout the season, Mariemont’s Quincy Taylor was a key cog in the Warriors’ rotation. Entering the CHCA contest, Taylor’s 335 kills were the most recorded in the Cincinnati Hills League. She also displayed her talents as a facilitator, assisting on 280 points, while also coming up with 218 digs on defense. Juniors Caitlyn Iredale and Grace Fening were also key offensive threats. The duo combined for 271 kills. The squad also got stellar play from junior Payton Coates, who was fifth in the CHL with 320 assists. Senior libero Emily McGraw led the team with 275 digs.

On the run for Walnut Hills (from left) are: Tessa Ward, Erin McAuliffe, Grace O'Donnell, Kelley Coleman, Hannah Schroeder, Collier Summay and Maryn Lowry. THANKS TO BOB MCAULIFFE

WALNUT HILLS — Depleted a year ago by illness, the Walnut Hills girls cross country team recovered this fall to take the very first Eastern Cincinnati Conference meet Oct. 13. Coached by Bill Valenzano, the Lady Eagles placed seven runners in the top10 to win a banner for Walnut Hills. Leading the pack was senior Maryn Lowry in 19:15.50, just a second and change off of the school record set by her teammate Erin McAuliffe in 2009. The effort gave Lowry league runner of the year honors and made Valenzano coach of the year. “She’s had a very good season,” Valenzano said. “Last year, she contracted mono and missed the entire cross country season. She did have a good winter and spring season.” Lowry’s accolades come roughly a year after she was cleared to run again. In a year’s time, she had a successful indoor track season, made the state

Walnut’s other top-10 finishers at league were sophomore Hannah Schroeder, senior Erin McAuliffe, sophomore Kelley Coleman, sophomore Collier Summay, senior Tessa Ward and

junior Grace O’Donnell. The former school recordholder, McAuliffe, is also a runner who has overcome an ailment. The senior contends with a rare liver disorder. “We were without Erin last year also,” Valenzano said. “It took her doctors months to figure out what the problem was.

Bombers bring home another district title By Tom Skeen tskeen@communitypress.com

SPRINGFIELD TWP. —

The St. Xavier Bombers exacted a little revenge on the Beavercreek Beavers Oct. 25. After playing 110 minutes of scoreless soccer, the Bombers beat the Beavers 4-2 in penalty kicks to claim their third-straight Division I district title. “It feels great,” coach Henry Ahrens said. “It never gets old. We’ve had so many tight games over the years. Some of the guys are saying, ‘how do you coaches do it?’” The victory comes nearly one year to the date after the Beavers beat St. Xavier 4-2 in the regional semifinal last season. Senior team captain Josh Meirose made the game-winning kick in the final round of penalty kicks after goalkeeper Michah Bledsoe made his second save in four shots. “When it got to our captain to finish it off I knew we were good,” Ahrens said. “I put the captain there; John (Broderick) led us off and Josh took us home.” Both teams came into the game shutting out their previous six opponents and this game was no different. The Bombers had a few opportunities, but their best chance came with less than two minutes to go in regulation when Myles Beresford was oneon-one with goalkeeper

Justin Saliba but missed wide. The Beavers had a golden opportunity in the first sudden-victory period, but Bledsoe made a leaping save and knocked the ball over the cross bar. “That ball was labeled,” Ahrens said about the game-saving play by his goalie. “He’s just grown so much through the years. It’s tough; he was a junior that didn’t get to play much and now (as a senior) he is asked to be the leader of the defense and make those big saves for us. When you get to this level you are not going to get through the big games without your goalie playing a big game himself and boy, did he come up big today.” What makes the victory even more remarkable is that the Bombers did it without three key parts of their team who are out with injury. Kiley Sunderhaus, Austin Cummings and Phil Albers all missed the game and it remains to be seen who will be able to play in the regional semifinal game Oct. 31 against Mason. “It just speaks to the brotherhood these guys feel for each other,” Ahrens said. “These guys really take the team commitment seriously… We knew we had a deep team coming in.” The Comets are ranked No. 10 in the OSSCA state poll and handed the Bombers their last loss this season 3-0, Sept. 4.

The Lady Indians (9-9-1) finished the year ranked fifth in the final Enquirer Division III coaches’ poll. CCD reached the final by defeating Cincinnati Christian, 2-1, Oct. 23.

McAuliffe was tested several times and it eventually took from September to March to figure out the exact diagnosis. Fortunately for Valenzano, a healthy Lowry and McAuliffe put his team over the top. “She ran almost like her old self again,” Valenzano said of McAuliffe. “She was a phenom as a freshman.” Currently, Maryn Lowry has college visits planned to Minnesota and Michigan State. “She’s looking very seriously at Big10 schools,” Va-

Sophomore Brianna Maggard also turned in a nice postseason with a three-goal effort against Purcell Marian in sectional tournament action Oct. 20. Defensively, goalie Elizabeth Grace recorded five shutouts, which was the second-best mark recorded in the league.

They go the distance on the trails and in the classroom. “This year’s senior class has somewhere in the neighborhood of 375 students,” Valenzano said. “I think I’ve got three girls on the cross country team that are ranked in the top10 academically.” Rounding out the Lady Eagles’ senior class is Tessa Ward, she cut close to a minute off of her times this fall. Beyond the three seniors, Valenzano has several girls to step up in 2013. “Four of them are back next year,” Valenzano said.

Nathan Gibson and Luke Deimer were tied for fourth in the league with 15 goals each. The duo also combined for 22 assists. Jake Scheper netted 11 goals while assisting teammates on eight occasions. Junior Dominic Isadore rounded out CCD scorers in the conference top10. He had nine goals and seven assists. » CCD’s defense was as equally dangers as the Indians offense. Junior goalie Wes Mink was second in the MVC with eight shutouts. For the season, CCD’s defense allowed just 10 goals.

“We also have a freshman (Skylar Bruggeman) that just ran 20:15 and didn’t even make varsity at 20:15.” Going into the district meet, Valenzano called this squad the best in school history - even better than the group that finished as district runners-up in 2009. The Lady Eagles proved him right by winning the district title in Mason Oct. 20, moving the whole squad to Troy for Oct. 27. At Troy, Walnut Hills narrowly missed qualifying as a team for the state meet by finishing fifth (top four teams qualify). Lowry qualified individually with a 15th-place finish in 19:03.24; her career best. CE-0000531132

CH@TROOM Last week’s question What is the scariest movie you ever saw or scariest book you ever read? What made it so scary?

“What is the scariest book I ever read? That's easy: It was called 'Hostage to the Devil,’ and it was written by a deceased priest named Malachi Martin. It dealt with the possession and exorcism of five contemporary Americans, and it was NOT fiction. “The book made such an impression on me that I tried (successfully) to contact Father Martin through his publisher, and we exchanged several letters and phone calls which helped me confirm his credibility. “I have struggled with faith in the supernatural because I look for absolute scientific proof, but that proof has not been forthcoming. However, this book convinced me that the devil is real – there is no other answer. If the devil is real, then so is God.” Bill B. “It's a close call between ‘The Shining’ and ‘The Silence of the Lambs,’ but I have to give the edge to the latter. The scene where Jodie Foster is groping around in the dark basement and the psycho is right behind her wearing night-vision goggles made me jump out of my seat! A spectacular acting job by Foster!” R.W.J. “The scariest movie I have ever seen is Danny Boyle's '28 Days Later.’ It was released in 2002 before the current zombie genre was in full swing, and the premise of a worldwide epidemic affecting huge populations seemed very possible, especially with talk of Ebola, SARS, and other diseases in the news. “Also, I watched it very late at night in a totally dark house. After we got done watching it my friend jumped up, quickly turned on all the rooms lights, and said 'That's it, we have to watch 'Old School' before we go to bed or else none of us will sleep tonight.” I.P.

WITH HONOR

NEXT QUESTION Does the release of the Boys Scouts’ “perversion” files change the way you feel about the group? Do you the think the group adequately protects the safety of its members? Why or why not? Every week we ask readers a question they can reply to via e-mail. Send your answers to espangler@communitypress.com with Chatroom in the subject line.

“I would say the scariest movie was back in the 70's called, 'The Town That Dreaded Sundown!' Just the effects made you cringe.” O.H.R. “‘The Silence of the Lambs’ gave me the creeps. From Hannibal Lector to Buffalo Bill's basement I was so scared I never wanted to see it again – and haven't!” R.V. “'Pinocchio.’ Saw when just a little tyke. Had nightmares about being one of the bad boys and I would grow a donkey tail and ears. Lasted for years. “This was all due to guilt imagined and real brought about by my mother and her nun cohorts. Just wish I knew what I was so guilty about.” J.Z. “‘The Birds’ – anyone that saw this movie at the drive-in and being in a convertible should understand. I think every convertible top went up and windows closed within the first 15-20 minutes of the movie. Oh what memories, and I don't mean from the back seat.” D.J. “The scariest movie I ever saw was the ‘Exorcist.’ Everything about that movie was creepy. I guess being brought up Catholic and their belief in exorcism made it more real to me. I don't think there will ever be another movie like that one.” D.D.

Start the holidays by making brandied fruit Around the first week of the holiday season, my kitchen looks like I’m moving in, or out. I pull out my pantry spices and herbs and check for freshness. I do an inventory of nuts, chocolates and candies needed for holiday baking. There’s Rita nothing Heikenfeld worse than RITA’S KITCHEN being in the middle of a holiday project and not having the right ingredients. It’s the time of year there are good sales on these items, so stock up.

you’re using will add to a recipe. I like using unsalted butter because it allows me to control the amount of salt in a dish. Unsalted butter is more fresh than salted, since salt act as a preservative. Store extra unsalted butter in the freezer.

Can you help?

Indigo’s Cajun cream. Another reader, besides Dave, is looking for a similar recipe for Indigo restaurant’s Cajun cream. Rita’s brandied fruit makes a great holiday gift from the kitchen. THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD.

ON THE AIR

Brandied fruit starter

16 oz. can diced peaches, drained (or sliced peaches diced) 16 oz. can apricot halves, drained and cut in fourths 20 oz. can pineapple tidbits, drained 10 oz. jar maraschino cherry halves, drained 11⁄4 cups sugar 11⁄2 cups brandy

Combine everything together. Pour into glass jar or glass bowl, cover and let sit at room temperature at least three weeks before serving, stirring twice a week. Serve over ice cream or cake. Reserve at least 1 cup starter at all times. To replenish starter: To your reserved cup of fruit, add 1 cup sugar and one of the first four ingredients every one to three weeks, alternating fruit each time. I’ll taste the mixture and if it seems

seasonings. Carefully pour over sausage mixture starting in the middle. Bake 30-35 minutes or until crust is golden. Serves 6-8.

Breakfast pizza

Smoky black beans

8 oz. can refrigerated crescent rolls 1 pound pork sausage, cooked and drained (can do ahead) 2 cups shredded favorite cheese: I like cheddar and mozzarella 5 large eggs, lightly beaten 1 ⁄2 cup milk 3 ⁄4 teaspoon dried oregano Bit of salt and several grindings pepper (optional)

1 small onion Chipotle chilies canned in adobo sauce 2 pounds canned black beans, rinsed and drained Olive oil 1 cup water Up to 3⁄4 cup fresh orange juice

Fun for kids and nice for the weekend. Substitute turkey sausage if you like.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Unroll crescent rolls, separating into eight triangles. Place with points toward center on sprayed 12-inch pizza pan. Press perforations together to form crust. Bake 8 minutes on lowest rack. Remove and reduce temperature to 350 degrees. Spoon sausage over dough and sprinkle with cheeses. Combine eggs, milk and

Mince onion. Cook over low heat in a bit of olive oil until softened. Add 1 tablespoon chipotle chilies (I take the whole can, process the mixture in a food processor and then it’s easy to measure) or less if you want. Cook for a couple of minutes, then add beans, 1 cup water and juice. Simmer and mash mixture a few times until slightly thickened, about 15 minutes. Season with salt.

Readers want to know Why do recipes list unsalted butter, then ask for salt? The USDA lets dairy processors vary the amount of salt they add. It

can be 1.5 percent to 2 percent and as high as 3 percent. You can’t be sure how much salt the butter

This is one of those recipes that creates memories and starts traditions. You need to start this within about a month before using or giving as a gift from the kitchen. This is easy and beautiful. Now if the cans of fruit are a bit less, or more, than what’s listed below, that’s OK. And packed in juice or syrup is OK, too. I used apricot brandy but plain or peach is OK.

At 9:15 a.m. Tuesday, Nov. 13, I’ll be talking with Tracey Johnson and Frank Marzullo on Fox 19’s Morning Xtra show about essentials needed for the holiday kitchen, including pantry staples, baking equipment, etc.

We live in an area which is known for very cold winters. Our facility is nearly 7000 square feet in area. When we began to utilize the first unit we were amazed to see how even the heat was for the entire living room area. We ordered a second and a third unit which now warms the entire home. Much to our surprise we are saving over $250 a month and had the lowest expense for heating we have ever experienced here. I would heartily recommend your products to anybody who is interested in really nice, even heat in their home and also interested in saving on their utility expenses. Dennis Crystal, Troy, MT (Retired Airline Pilot)

Enclosed you will find printouts of our electric bill and gas/heating/cooking bills for 2007 - 2008. Our gas company, AmeriGas, stated that more money was saved than would show up because of the cost going up. We would turn the gas on early in the morning and turn it down to 60 degrees; We would use the EdenPURE ® heaters from then on and they provided such warmth and cozy heat. Many of our friends have informed me recently that they are going to purchase these heaters for their homes this winter. Gloria D. Smith, Boydton, VA (Retired Elementary Principal)

EdenPURE reopens Ohio factory creates 250 new jobs ®

New models shipped direct from warehouse at 49% savings Richard Karn, North Canton, Ohio I was fortunate enough to attend the grand opening of the new EdenPURE ® factory in North Canton, Ohio. The new plant brought hundreds of new jobs back to Ohio and reversed the common practice of sending Midwest manufacturing jobs to China. Now, EdenPURE® continues to ramp up production for the coming Winter with exciting new models and hundreds of new employees as this Made in America success story continues to grow. American Labor, American Quality With over 3 million portable heaters sold EdenPURE® is the best selling portable infrared heating system in North America. However, like any classic, EdenPURE® has dozens of would-be competitors who create Asian copies at low prices using cheap, foreign labor. Don’t be fooled by these imitations. Look for the EdenPURE® logo and the Made in North Canton, Ohio stamp. Save like millions of others on your heating bills and say “NO” to cheap foreign imitators. I spoke with Neil Tyburk the Chief Designer and President of EdenPURE ®’s North Canton plant who is very direct in his beliefs. “We have better designs, better materials and a better work force. We can kick their butts in production and quality. The only advantage they have is cheap labor.” Save up to 49% on 2013 EdenPURE®s Now readers can save up to 49% ($229 the largest savings ever on new EdenPURE ®s). EdenPURE ® is not just the best-selling portable heating system in North America. As an EdenPURE® owner I rank EdenPURE ® #1 for quality, safety and efficiency. And now is the perfect time to save like never before on our expanded 2013 EdenPURE® line made in our brand new North Canton, Ohio facility. With two models EdenPURE ® can meet all of your heating requirements 365 days a year. We receive thousands of letters from satisfied customers who share their heating testimonials many of which you can view at our website edenpure.com. This Summer we even followed up with EdenPURE® customers from 5 years ago like Gloria Smith (see her original testimony above) who are still just as enthusiastic and in some instances saved thousands of dollars versus costly propane. Gloria Smith Interview May 20, 2012 “My name is Gloria Smith and I am a retired principal from Boydton, Virginia. I’ve been using EdenPURE® Heaters for 5 years. I think I saved at least $15,000 over a period of 5 years. And that’s proven with my bank statements because it’s documented. And I feel really great about using the EdenPURE® Heaters.” “Many people have called me from all over the country when they have seen the infomercials on TV. I’ve en-

PERSONAL

MODEL 750

As Al Borland on Home Improvement I was the man with all the answers. However, as Richard Karn I still look for money saving and efficient heating in my home. I have an EdenPURE ® Infrared Portable Heater in my California home and like millions of others found it to be a supersafe, reliable source of portable heat all year long. joyed talking to them and I want everybody to save money in these hard economic times. I believe in paying it forward, so when you experience something good, you want to share it.” Stay Comfortable 365 Days a Year “Never be cold again” is the EdenPURE ® promise. EdenPURE® provides you insurance against the cold all year long. Stay comfortable on those unseasonably chilly evenings no matter the season. I live in California but believe me it gets cold at night. Keep your expensive furnace turned down until it’s absolutely necessary. And if we are fortunate enough to experience a mild winter as many of us did in the Midwest last year, you keep your furnace off all season and save even bigger. New, More Efficient Models The engineers at EdenPURE® listened to their millions of customers and somehow managed to improve the #1 portable heater in North America. Through old fashioned American ingenuity the new EdenPURE® line is more efficient to save you even more money. The EdenPURE® Personal Heater now heats a larger area, an increase from 350 square feet to 500 square feet. That’s a 30% increase in efficiency! And EdenPURE® is proud to introduce the 2013 Model 750. The new Model 750 is perfect for larger areas and heats up to 750 square feet. But the best thing about the Model 750 is the price. We priced the Model 750 at only $50 above the Personal Heater. This means you receive a 33% increase in performance for only $50. That’s American engineering at its best! We all know heating costs are expected to remain at record levels. The cost of

heating our homes and apartments will continue to be a significant burden on the family budget. The EdenPURE® can cut your heating bills and pay for itself in a matter of weeks, and then start putting a great deal of extra money in your pocket after that. Super Safe Infrared Heat Now remember, a major cause of residential fires in the United States is carelessness and faulty portable heaters. The choice of fire and safety professional, Captain Mike Hornby, the EdenPURE® has no exposed heating elements that can cause a fire. And a redundant home protection system that simply shuts the EdenPURE® down if it senses danger. That’s why grandparents and parents love the EdenPURE®. The outside of the EdenPURE® only gets warm to the touch so that it will not burn children or pets. And your pet may be just like my dog who has reserved a favorite spot near the EdenPURE ® . You see the EdenPURE ® uses infrared heat. And just as pets enjoy basking in a beam of sunlight they try to stay close to EdenPURE ® ’s “bonewarming” infrared heat. The Origin of EdenPURE® a Missouri Rancher’s Discovery American’s love to tinker. We are a nation of inventors from Benjamin Franklin to Thomas Edison. A Missouri horse breeder named John Jones was no exception. Jones lived in a large drafty old farmhouse with his family of five. They stayed warm on cold Missouri nights with an old coal furnace and plenty of blankets. Now Jones was always collecting scrap to use in his latest inventions and somewhere along the line he had picked up a large sheet of cured copper.

2. The quartz infrared lamp gently warms the patented copper heating chambers.

SYLVANIA is a registered trademark of OSRAM SYLVANIA Inc. used under license. Richard Karn is a paid spokesperson for EdenPURE®.

Jones stored the large copper sheet in his basement near the coal furnace he labored to fill every chilly morning. Jones noticed something peculiar. The coal furnace warmed the copper sheet and as the furnace cooled down the copper sheet stayed warm. In fact, the copper sheet stayed warm for many hours and heated much of the large basement. As Jones continued to develop a portable infrared heater he knew the copper was the secret ingredient that would make his heater different from all the rest. His copper heating chambers combined with the far infrared bulbs provided an efficient wave of “soft” heat over large areas. The breakthrough EdenPURE® infrared heating chamber was born. The Health Secret is in the Copper EdenPURE ® ’s engineers have taken Jones’ original concept through revolutionary changes. EdenFLOW™ technology uses copper heating chambers to take the energy provided by our special SYLVANIA infrared bulbs and distribute our famous soft heat evenly throughout the room. Now our copper isn’t ordinary. It’s 99.9% pure antimicrobial copper from an over 150 year old American owned company in Pennsylvania. Researchers have discovered copper as an antimicrobial is far more effective than stainless steel or even silver. That’s why our special antimicrobial copper is marked Cu+ and used in hospitals on touch surfaces. So your EdenPURE ® heater is continuously pushing soft, healthy, infrared heat throughout your room.

Heritage cottage now open for ‘Tastings’ By Rob Dowdy rdowdy@communitypress.com

COLUMBIA TWP. — The Heritage Grand may not be open for customers, but Heritage Tastings is ready and willing to serve. Heritage Tastings, in the cottage adjacent to the Heritage Grand, offers tea sittings, pre-fixed meals, beer and wine tastings as well as fresh baked

goods. It also features a rotating menu and grows herbs and spices that will be used on site for meals, and beer that will soon be brewed at the Heritage Grand. Owner Karen Lyon said a recent visit to a tea house in Florida led her to consider opening a similar business in the area. “I was just in awe of it. I

thought I could do this,” she said. It’s only been a few weeks, but Lyon said the business has been good. Bob Slattery, who owns the property, said Heritage Tastings is the first phase in his plan to renovate the Heritage House as an eatery and microbrewery that’s available as a boutique meeting space.

He said when he was approached about Lyon’s plan for the cottage, he was excited about the possibilities. “No one’s really done anything like that,” Slattery said. Brooke Brandon, Lyon’s partner at Heritage Tastings, said the menu will rotate monthly, but patrons have taken the the cream of asparagus soup,

which remains available each month. She also said they make a delicious radish chive tea sandwich, and Lyon’s quiche is “so good.” “That’s a staple of our lunch,” she said. Heritage Tastings is open by reservation only. For more information, or to make a reservation, visit www.heritagetastings.com or call 322-1881.

Owner Karen Lyon and partner Brooke Brandon are taking reservations at Heritage Tastings, which is located next to the Heritage Grand. ROB DOWDY/ THE COMMUNITY PRESS

$1M bond set in brother’s slaying Police allege felon ran over sibling with truck in fight

Gannett News Service MADISONVILLE — A motorist and career criminal accused of running down and killing his own brother over the weekend was ordered held on a $1 million bond today. In setting such a high bond, Hamilton County Municipal Court Judge Bernie Bouchard agreed with prosecutors who said Kalvin Lavizzo, 46, now facing a murder charge, has a “terrible record.” The convicted felon has been in and out of jail on several charges including domestic violence, felonious assault and aggravated assault since the early 1990s, court records show. He currently is serving three years’ probation for receiving a stolen property conviction earlier this year. Lavizzo’s public defender, however, insists he did not hurt his older brother, Theodore Lavizzo, 57. The two men argued in a parking lot behind a home in the 4800 block of Whetsel Avenue in Madisonville about10 p.m. Saturday, Cincinnati police said. The fight came to blows, after which police say Kalvin Lavizzo got into his green, 1994 Toyota pickup

He died at University Hospital. “He completely denies causing or trying to cause harm to his brother,” said Kathryn Fallat of the Hamilton County Public Defender’s Office. “He is extremely distraught.” While authorities have not said yet what the two brothers were allegedly ar-

guing about, the family made headlines last year. The brothers and their

along with everyone. “We didn’t have any problem out of him,” Recher said Monday. “It was kind of surprising to me, about his own brother, but I never met any of the family.” Recher said he knew about the accusations against Lavizzo involving Job and Family Services, but he doesn’t think Lavizzo saw a penny of the money from that scheme. “He didn’t get any of that money. He was living from week to week,” Recher said.

sister, Marie Lavizzo, 44, were indicted on charges of receiving stolen property in a scheme that authorities say stole more than $135,000 in public benefits from Hamilton County taxpayers. Three former Hamilton County Job and Family Services workers and 12 of their families and friends – including the Lavizzos – were accused in a 60-count indictment last year including theft in office, tampering with evidence and receiving stolen property. The workers are accused of filling out applications for medical benefits, cash or food stamps in the names of 12 families or friends and lying to super-

visors to allow those benefits applications to be approved. At least one of the workers was getting a kickback in the scheme. The workers, who were operating their schemes independent of each other without the knowledge of what the others were doing, all resigned in the summer of 2010 after a JFS investigation was launched Bill Recher, Kalvin Lavizzo’s boss at Products & Service Co. of the West End, said the welder had a good work record and got
