Streetcar fate is in doubt as council adds three new faces Gannett News Service

The Cincinnati City Council that takes office Dec. 1 will have three new members, and a majority that opposes the streetcar. Unofficial results showed six of eight incumbents in the race were re-elected Nov. 5: P.G. Sittenfeld, Charlie Winburn, Christopher Smitherman, Yvette Simpson, Chris Seelbach and Wendell Young. Also elected were challengers David Mann, Amy Murray and Kevin Flynn. Out: incumbents Laure Quinlivan and Pam Thomas. (The ninth incumbent, Roxanne Qualls, ran for mayor.) The new council will consist of five Democrats, two Republicans, one independent and one Charterite. (One of the Republicans – Murray – and one of the Democrats – Simpson – also were endorsed by the Charter party.) The council will have four African-Americans and five whites. That compares with the current council makeup of seven Democrats, one Republican and one independent. It has five African-Americans and four whites. Although the election is officially nonpartisan, candidates receive endorsements from any of three major parties. The new council will have six members who oppose the streetcar. That’s a change from the current council, which has five members supporting it. This was an important election if for no other reason than council members will hold their seats for four years, rather than two, because of a charter amendment change approved by voters last year. Sittenfeld was the runaway winner with 37,456 votes, surpassing the No. 2 vote-getter, Winburn, by more than 10,000 votes. “I’m so grateful to the citizens of Cincinnati for putting their trust in me,” Sittenfeld texted late Tuesday night. Twenty-one candidates were in the race. A number of voters exiting the polls on Tuesday said their choices for City Council were

based at least in part on where candidates stood on two highprofile issues. “Everything’s about the streetcar and parking meter issues,” Jay Freimark, 47, said after casting his ballot at Our Lord Christ the King Church in Mount Lookout. He opposes the streetcar and the city’s plan to lease its parking system. Stephen Power, 44, who voted at the same location, also said the streetcar was a major issue. “I like streetcars as much as the next guy, but I don’t think the city can afford it right now.” Party affiliation played a role in his choices, too. He voted a Republican ticket – incumbent Winburn, and challengers Murray, Sam Malone and Melissa Wegman. All oppose the streetcar. But he said he made one exception in voting for Quinlivan, a Democrat who supports the streetcar, because she’s the only candidate who lives in Powers’ Mount Lookout neighborhood. Quinlivan finished 10th. The other incumbent who lost, Pam

Thomas, who in April was appointed to fill the seat once held by her husband, Cecil, finished 13th. A majority of the 21 candidates opposed the streetcar and the parking-lease plan, according to information they provided to The Enquirer during the campaign. Only two members of the new council support the parking plan. On the current council, three support it. Emily McNicholas, 30, is prostreetcar, “so I voted for people who were supportive of that project,” she said after voting at Faith Presbyterian Church in Mount Washington. The candidates who want to stop the streetcar “haven’t explained exactly how they plan on canceling the contracts that have already been signed.” In addition to the streetcar and parking, voters leaving the polls Tuesday also mentioned the city budget, public safety and job creation as important issues.

According to unofficial results, this is the Cincinnati City Council voters elected Tuesday: » P.G. Sittenfeld: He was elected to his second term, after finishing second in 2011. As of Oct. 16, the 29-year-old Democrat from East Walnut Hills had raised the most money of all the candidates, according to finance reports. He opposes the parking plan and streetcar. » Charlie Winburn: The 62-year-old Republican from Mount Airy is a colorful orator keyed on public safety and jobs during the campaign. He served on council from 1993-2001, and from 2009 to present. He is senior life coach at Renew Community Church. He opposes the parking plan and streetcar. He finished fifth in 2011. » David Mann: The Clifton resident, lawyer and former congressman, 74, becomes City Council’s most experienced member. He held the job from 1974 to 1992, which included three years as mayor. He was endorsed by the Democratic and Charter parties. He opposes the parking plan and streetcar. He’s a lawyer who says he ran to restore financial sustainability to the city. » Yvette Simpson: She was seen as potentially vulnerable because of her seventh-place finish in 2011 and her backing of two controversial issues: the streetcar and the parking plan. The West End resident, 35, was endorsed by both the Democratic and Charter parties. Her focus has been youth issues, including development of the Youth Commission of Cincinnati. » Chris Seelbach: Cincinnati’s first openly gay council member, was elected to a second term. The Democrat finished ninth in 2011. The Overthe-Rhine resident, 33, opposes the parking plan and supports the streetcar. He helped repeal the anti-gay Article XII in 2004. » Christopher Smitherman: The 46-year-old North Avondale resident ran as an independent and was elected to his third term. He’s a financial adviser and president of the Cincinnati branch of the NAACP. He opposes the parking plan and the streetcar. He finished eighth in 2011. » Wendell Young: The North Avondale resident, 68, has been a councilman since June 2010 when he was appointed to replace Laketa Cole. The retired Cincinnati police officer finished third in 2011. He supports the parking plan and streetcar. If elected mayor, Roxanne Qualls said she would make him vice mayor. » Kevin Flynn: The Charter-endorsed Mount Airy resident, 52, was making his third run for council. He finished 11th in 2011 and 13th in 2009. He’s a real estate lawyer and adjunct professor at the University of Cincinnati. His campaign slogan, “I’m sitting down, but I’m standing up for Cincinnati,” refers in part to a 2002 traffic accident that left him a paraplegic. He said the budget is the top issue. He opposes the parking plan and the streetcar. » Amy Murray: She gained almost a year of experience on City Council in 2011 after being appointed to replace Chris Monzel, but she finished 12th in that year’s election (as well as in 2009.) The Hyde Park resident, 49, was endorsed by the Republican and Charter parties. She’s a small-business owner and former president of the Hyde Park Neighborhood Council. She opposes the parking plan and the streetcar.

Incumbents on council incurred the wrath of some voters. “Why put somebody in (office) that’s been (elected) over and over, and all they do is argue?” said James Brabson, 64, of Madisonville, after casting his ballot at the Madisonville Recreation Center.

Lori Rochford, 51, of Mount Lookout said she was “just frustrated with the degree of antagonism on the council.” Donna Hawkins of Madisonville singled out challengers Vanessa White and Mann as earning her vote.

Mariemont voters support levies By Lisa Wakeland

Mariemont voters overwhelmingly approved two levy renewals on Election Day. The first, a five-year levy for the village’s operating expenses, passed with 85.2 percent of the vote, according to unofficial results from the Hamilton County Board of Elections. It will cost homeowners $14.57 per $100,000 of home value each year. It’s expected to bring in about $76,700 each year

to the village. Mariemont Mayor Dan Policastro said the support shows residents trust council. “I think it shows that the people know we’re doing a great job,” he said. “They know with the three small levies that we have we’re very good stewards of the money.” The second levy, a five-year renewal for the MariElders senior center, passed with 83.4 percent of voters supporting it. It will cost homeowners $12.79 per $100,000 of home val-

ue, and is expected to generate $58,900 each year for the senior center on Madisonville Road. The levy represents about 44 percent of the center’s operating budget and helps pay for activities and transportation for its nearly 400 members from Mariemont, Terrace Park, Columbia Township, Fairfax and Madisonville. “We are very grateful and thankful for all the support the village residents gave,” MariElders Executive Director Kathy Chapman-Dick said.

“This will help us keep going providing the good service we do and taking care of the people who need assistance.” Voter Carole Bowman said she supported both levy renewals. “For the MariElders, I think it’s a very successful organization that helps a lot of people in several communities,” she said. Bowman said she supported the village levy renewal “to keep Mariemont going in a positive way.”

So while John Cranley won by a big margin – 58 percent to 42 percent – he was really elected by just one in six of the city’s 202,195 registered voters. It was the smallest turnout since Cincinnatians started directly electing mayors in 2001. Cranley shrugged it off in his first press conference Wednesday as mayor-elect, saying he didn’t know why the turnout was so low but that “I’m just

Where were most Cincinnatians on Nov. 5? Certainly not at the polls choosing the city’s next mayor. Just 28.8 percent of registered voters in the city turned out, according to the Hamilton County Board of Elections. Which means that in spite of three televised debates, more than $1.7 million spent by the two campaigns, two hotly divisive

humbled and honored for the people who did vote.” Voters, officials and pundits tossed out myriad possible reasons for the low turnout. Among them: Voters didn’t see a big difference between Cranley and Qualls, both Democrats; there was no black candidate in a city that’s now majority minority; and people are pretty happy with the general direction of the city right now and didn’t feel it necessary to vote. Cincinnatians weren’t alone in their apathy. Turnout was dismal in mayoral elections across the country, according to Next City, a nonprofit ded-

they drop you off and you never hear from them again.” Sandra Oglesby, 30, of Kennedy Heights, didn’t vote. A mother of three who works with mentally disabled adults, she said her life is so hectic trying to make ends meet that she could not get up to speed on the issues. But she was wholly against the streetcar. “Let’s fix what’s wrong – like all these people with addiction problems – before we go about building up the city,” she said. “And who are we building it up for? Not for black people.” There are some practical reasons that prohibit black people from voting too. In Avondale, for example, an estimated 49 percent of people 20-24 are unemployed, and throughout the neighborhood 40 percent of the people do not have access to a vehicle. The ballot might just have been too complicated for some voters too, with 21 candidates for nine council seats, said Gene Beaupre, a longtime Cincinnati election analyst and Xavier University’s director of government relations. “It’s pretty hard for people to wrap their heads around it.”

Peterson Mingo, pastor of Christ Temple Full Gospel Baptist Church in Evanston. “After years of promises, people get to feeling that `no matter what I do, no matter how I vote or present myself, nothing changes,’” he said. “It’s like if somebody takes you out, wines and dines you and gets what they want,

Terrace Park voters OK new levy By Lisa Wakeland

Terrace Park voters overwhelmingly supported a new tax hike on Election Day. More than 63 percent of voters Tuesday approved a new 2.5-mill operating levy that will cost homeowners about $88 per $100,000 of market value. It will generate about $300,000 per year for the village. Susan Venderbush was one of the residents who voted for the levy.

“We don’t want to lose the services the money provides to our town,” she said. Judy Heffner also supported the levy and said, “I think it’s necessary.” Village officials have said this new levy would help offset losses from the state’s elimination of the estate tax and reductions to the Local Government Fund. Those cuts resulted in Terrace Park losing close to $240,000 each year, or about 12 percent of its annual budget.

Village officials have been drawing down cash reserves and using more money from restricted funds to help preserve the general fund balance. Councilman Mark Porst, who is chairman of the Finance Committee, said they’re happy voters supported the new levy request. “I think what residents were saying is they like how the village is run, and they want to keep it the way it is,” he said. “They’ve been very generous as taxpayers.” Porst said the wide

margin also showed residents think council is responsible with the village money and “spend it like it’s our own.” Total voter turnout was 30.4 percent, according to the unofficial results. There were 523 total votes cast for the Terrace Park levy, and poll worker Ashley Weech said one precinct reached about 20 percent of registered voters with close to three hours left for voting. “It’s not bad for an off year,” he said.

New economic zone a ‘huge win’ By Jeanne Houck


cials say great things are in store for the township following passage of an economic-development plan that includes a new earnings tax. Trustee Lemon David Kubicki said the vote Nov. 5 gives Columbia Township more economic-development tools and the ability to continue providing topgrade services to residents. “This was a huge win,” Kubicki said. “There are so many opportunities to improve and grow all three of our business districts, and now we can do more things. “The trustees have a vision to improve this community and this is a big step in executing that vision,” Kubicki said. The plan approved by voters will allow Columbia Township and Fairfax to create a joint economicdevelopment zone in township commercial areas on Wooster Pike, on Plainville Road and at Ridge and Highland avenues. A board of directors will levy a 1-percent earnings tax on people who work and businesses that operate there. Ohio law prohibits townships from collecting earnings taxes. But with the joint economic-development zone agreement between Columbia Township and Fair-

fax, as sanctioned by the state, Fairfax will collect the new earnings tax in the zone and give the township 90 percent of the revenue after subtracting service, reserve and escrow fees. For its trouble, Fairfax will collect the remaining 10 percent of the post-fees revenue. Columbia Township Administrator Mike Lemon estimates the township annually will collect $670,000 and Fairfax $67,000 from the new tax. Preliminary numbers from the Hamilton County Board of Elections show Columbia Township’s proposed economic-development plan was approved by a vote of 706 — nearly 83 percent of the ballots cast – to 149 — just over 17 percent of the ballots cast. “We were hoping for a high approval rate and we got it,” Lemon said. “Thanks go to the voters of Columbia Township for recognizing the value and importance of this issue to the future of the township. “The passage of this issue will provide a new revenue source to meet the needs of the township, (for) enhanced services and infrastructure as well as to allow the township to continue its economic-development initiatives,” Lemon said. “A new day has dawned in Columbia Township.” Like other municipalities, the township and Fairfax are looking for ways to raise money in the wake of cuts in state appropriations and in local property taxes caused by falling property valuations.

Cincinnati voters have spoken again about the streetcar, overwhelmingly choosing as mayor John Cranley Nov. 5, who focused his campaign on the $133 million project he sees as wasteful and promises to stop. Voters picked Cranley over Vice Mayor Roxanne Qualls, who was mayor from 1993 to 1999. He opposes the streetcar and parking lease; she favors both. He promoted himself as the change agent, the fiscal watchdog who said he would pay more attention to neighborhoods. Cranley started the night with a big lead in absentee ballots, 62 percent to 37 percent, and Qualls never closed that gap. With all but one precinct counted, Cranley led with 58 percent of the vote to Qualls’ 42 percent – the largest percentage win since Cincinnati directly elected its first mayor in 2001. But turnout, at about 28 percent, also was the


lowest of the same era. That’s not far off the results of Cranley’s big primary win in September, which Qualls supporters were certain happened only because her supporters stayed home, knowing she and Cranley would go on to November. “We’re honored and humbled by the support we’ve received,” Cranley said. “And we want to move the city forward. ... I owe this community a lot. So it’s nothing but a privilege to be able to give something back.” He immediately promised to work in “bipartisan fashion” and “to work on uniting this city in a way that works for all people. ... We are going to put more cops and firefighters on the street. We are going to balance the budget. We are going to get out of the streetcar.” The choice is important: Cranley is the first new mayor in eight years and could lead the city for the next eight. He’ll also have to work with the nine members of City Council for four years – their terms double this time. A majority of the new council opposes the streetcar, so he won’t have to fight them over that issue. Qualls said the results weren’t what she hoped for, but that she and her supporters will continue

to work to improve the city. Her supporters’ job now, she said, is “to work with the new mayor. His success is our success.” “I’ll look at how I can contribute,” she said. “What I enjoy doing is working on a neighborhood level” creating walkable,urban communities. The race, she said, “became focused on two wedge issues,” the streetcar and parking lease, including “from my perspective, a lot of misinformation.” She started her concession speech by focusing on the man she would have chosen to be her vice mayor, Wendell Young. He won re-election. She led the crowd in chanting, “Wen-

dell! Wendell!” “He is the epitome of public service,” she said. “He really is someone who, if you can’t tell it by now, is someone I tremendously respect.” It was an election more affected by social media than any before. Supporters and opponents of both candidates battled via Facebook and Twitter. After the polls closed, Cranley posted this on his Facebook page: “Win or lose I am proud of my campaign, my campaign team, and our city. Out of my hands now. Time for a little Moment of Surrender by U2.” Tim Burke, chairman of the Hamilton County Democratic Party, said people who thought this would be a close race “were living in a fantasy. John, to his credit, took advantage of two very unpopular issues. He built a coalition that was unmatched.” The race was tough for the party because it was divisive. Both Cranley and Qualls are longtime Democrats. “I think John will be smart enough to realize there is significant element of the party that I hope he will help build bridges back to,” Burke said. “I feel very good about the future of Cincinnati.”

CPS board adds 3 new members, retains incumbent By Jessica Brown

Cincinnati voters Tuesday elected three new members to the sevenperson school board and kept the only incumbent running for re-election, according to early unofficial ballot totals. The Cincinnati Public School board race had drawn Bates the biggest field since 2009 with nine candidates running for four open seats. With almost all Copelandprecincts Dansby reporting, unofficial results pointed to incumbent Melanie Bates (18.12 percent), Ericka CopeHoffman land-Dansby(14.84percent), Elisa Hoffman (13.84 percent) and Daniel Minera (10.91 percent) as Minera winning. They were beating out candidates Marcia Futel, Victoria Straughn, Martha Good, Sally O’Callaghan and Betsy Shank. Current board mem-

bers Catherine Ingram, Vanessa White and board president Eileen Cooper Reed did not seek re-election. Bates was poised to be the top vote-getter, according to early tallies. “Hopefully it will mean we will continue to move forward,” said Bates. “I really meant it when I said we’re going to move from being the best urban district to the best district. I didn’t hear any pushback from the community. I believe the community is behind us.” Minera was the only male candidate running. He was born in Guatemala and is a member of the Local School Decision

Making Committee at Roberts Academy, a CPS school. He’s also director of Hispanic outreach at City Gospel Mission and tutors families in Price Hill. He touts the district’s community learning centers. Copeland-Dansby is director of resource development for the Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Cincinnati and a CPS graduate herself. Her son attends Walnut Hills. She’s stressed collaboration and transparency in her platform and had a concise four-point plan for improving the schools: equity, excellence, ensuring a 21st-century education and empowering par-

ents and the community. Hoffman works as a recruiter for Teach for America, a national teacher-training organization.

As such, she wouldn’t be able to vote on issues that involve Teach for America or its teachers (CPS is one of several districts

that participate in the program). Her twins will be enrolled in CPS kindergarten next year.

Silver Knights reach state ‘Summit’ once again

By Mark D. Motz


COLUMBUS (Ohio) — - Take two. Summit Country Day won its second consecutive Division III state soccer championship Nov. 9, beating Mansfield Christian 2-1 at Columbus Crew Stadium for the title. “It’s just as sweet,” said Silver Knights head coach Barnard Baker of the second state victory. “Because this one was so unexpected and because it’s my last game, this one is very, very special to me.” Unexpected in that Summit graduated so many players from its 2012 title team, leaving the Silver Knights with talented - albeit largely varsity-untested - players to begin the season. So fitting, perhaps, that a pair of sophomores did the scoring honors in the state final; Charlie Maciejewski netted one in the first half and Brendan Jones scored in the second. Mansfield Christian got its goal in the final two minutes off a corner kick Baker still wasn’t sure about more than an hour after the game. “I’m going to have to see the tape,” he said. “There was some strange call that got them a corner and I don’t know exactly how it happened. But we were able to survive that.” More than survive. Summit took advantage of Crew Stadium’s immense 77-yard width and Mansfield’s three-man back row. “We played everything wide and attacked the corners,” Baker said. “We knew they had played on a smaller field and had never been there before, so we tried to take advantage of that. “You think of playing on grass and it might slow you down, but it’s so, so super-fast. But with that width, everything is in play. We said, ‘Let’s keep attacking the corners,’ and eventually they had to start protecting them and that left some gaps for us.” Summit reached the championship game by beating Worthington Christian 2-0 in the state semifinals Nov. 6. “It’s so big,” said junior forward Austin Smythe. “Last year we were full of seniors and they said we couldn’t get back. We really wanted this to show them we could.” Baker may have sided with the recent graduates at the start of the season, but he’s more than a believer now. “The word for us all season was survival, not repeat,” he said. “After losing as many players as we did and as tough a schedule as we had to play, we thought we’d have five or six losses and have to battle. “We did battle and we did survive, and here we are again.”

Summit Country Day not only hoisted the team trophy for the state title, but also some individual hardware. Just hours before the state finals, the Ohio Scholastic Soccer Coaches Association named Silver Knights senior Christian Hay Ohio Division III player of the year. “Christian was a beast tonight,” said head coach Barnard Baker. “Of course, he was a beast every night. He completely deserves that award. There is nobody better, nobody who meant more to their team.” Classmate Bryce Hueber was Ohio Division III girls player of the year for Summit. Baker - who announced his retirement as head coach earlier this season - picked up OSSCA private school coach of the year honors.

Midway through the first half Maciejewski found Smythe streaking down the right side for the first goal. “I got a chance and I got a step on the the defense,” said Smythe, a Mariemont resident. “I just got a foot on it and put it in the back of the net The second goal came at the 15:04 mark of the second half when senior Matt Meister subbed in for a cramping Smythe on the second of two consecutive corner kicks. Meister - a Hyde Park resident - found himself open from 15 yards out on a deflection. “I faked it, crossed it over to my right foot and took the shot,” he said. “I was surprised I had room to move the ball like I did, let alone take the shot. “It was unbelievable to come in off the bench and score a goal late in the game, this late in the season, my senior year. We did lose a lot of seniors from last year, but I think the seniors this year really stepped up. We really want this. “We want this because it’s so fun, just the journey of making it to state.”

SCD, Moeller move on in postseason By Scott Springer and Mark Motz


Several schools in the Eastern Hills Journal coverage area played firstround games in the Ohio High School football playoffs Nov. 8 and 9. The following is a wrap-up of week one for those schools.

Summit Country Day

The Silver Knights avenged an eight-point loss week eight in a big way, beating previously undefeated Cincinnati Country Day 55-28 Nov. 8 in the first round of the Division VI playoffs. “We definitely wanted to see them again,” said Summit head coach Mike Brown. “Any time you play your rival and you only lose by eight, you want another shot at them. “The good part is we got to get them again. But they’re a league rival in your division and you want your conference to do well, so from that perspective it’s tough. They’re definitely a very good team.” Antonio Woods set the pace for Summit, throwing four touchdown passes and running for three more. “Our offense came out firing on all cylinders,” Brown said. “In our first seven possessions we scored six touchdowns. At the end of the half we scored two touchdowns in the last three minutes and that proved to be very important for us. No lead was safe against them. They’re a very good team. “(Woods) is electrifying. He made all the throws and when they weren’t there, he didn’t make any bad decisions and that was just as big. When he runs, he takes what should be a threeyard gain and turns it into a 50-yard touchdown. He’s just an exceptional athlete.” He’s also one who had a big week off the field as well, announcing his intention to play football and basketball at the University of Pennsylvania of the Ivy League. “He’s one of the calmest, most collected kids I’ve ever had,” Brown said. “For him to make

that announcement and go out and have the kind of game he had, I think that shows how focused he is and how badly he wants to win for his teammates.” The Silver Knights improved to 9-2 with the win and advanced to face West Liberty-Salem Nov. 15. The Tigers beat Williamsburg 27-20 in their playoff opener. “We’ve got to pressure (Tiger quarterback Brandon Upton) and make him throw earlier and make him make throws he doesn’t want to throw,” Brown said. “And for us, we need to keep on doing what we’ve been doing, spreading the field and letting our players make plays.”

time deficit by hitting Aaron Harris on touchdown strikes in the third and fourth quarters. The second pulled Withrow within seven at 26-19 with 11:33. However, Mount Healthy responded with a pair of late scores to make for the 40-19 final. Tyree Elliott led the Owls with four touchdowns; one rushing, one on an interception return and two on passes from David Montgomery. Montgomery led all runners with 144 yards. Withrow finishes the season at 8-3 and another Cincinnati Metro Athletic Conference championship at 6-0.

St. Xavier


In a game that could’ve filled some stadiums beyond the capacity of Lockland Memorial’s 6,000, Moeller started their 2013 run in the Division I playoffs with a 42-17 rout of St. Xavier. After taking a 14-0 lead in the first quarter, the Bombers got within a touchdown at 21-14 at the half. However, the second half belonged to Moeller as they outscored St. Xavier 21-3 to win by 25. Senior Gus Ragland was Moeller’s top rusher with 157 yards and three touchdowns. Nearly half of those yards came on a 72-yard fourth-quarter scamper. He also was 1013 passing for 264 yards and two touchdowns to senior Isaiah Gentry. Ragland missed Moeller’s first win over St. Xavier back on Sept. 27 with an injury. Gentry had 229 yards receiving on five grabs with touchdowns of 55 and 81 yards. Moeller’s other touchdown was a Dean Meyer two-yard run in the fourth quarter. Also contributing in the victory was Sterling Noes who ran for 135 yards with a long of 75. Defensively, Ohio State-bound Sam Hubbard had two interceptions and Will Mercurio added another pick. The Crusaders outgained the Bombers 631302. St. Xavier’s season ends at 5-6. Moeller is now10-1with their lone loss coming at Lakewood St. Edward on Oct. 26. Next up on Nov. 16 is the Elder Panthers.

The Warriors kept it close in the first half, but fell 37-13 on the road against Hamilton Badin in the Division V playoffs Nov. 9. The Rams scored on their opening drive and never relinquished the

lead. Mariemont tied the game at 7-7 with Ryden Lewis’ touchdown run on fourth and goal with 4:06 to play in the first period, but the Phillip Dozier broke containment and got free for a 78-yard touchdown for the Rams. Hans Hinebaugh kicked the first of his two field goals to make it14-10, but another blown coverage led to a 40-yard touchdown pass for the Rams. Hinebaugh’s second field goal made it 20-13 at the half and marked the end of Mariemont’s scoring. Badin added two touchdowns and field goal in the second half and took a knee on the one-yard line late in the fourth quarter to turn the ball over on downs. “We played our best game of the year except for two plays in the first half,” said Warriors head coach Kurry Commins. “They made us pay for our mistakes and you have to give credit where credit is due for that.” Commins said his first year at the helm was memorable. “I told our kids I loved them, because I do,” he said. “They accomplished a lot. We’re not the most

talented, the biggest or the fastest, but they showed so much perseverance and so much pride. I can’t be more excited about our future. “Our seniors re-established Mariemont football as a playoff team. I think with time we’ll learn more from them. Their full legacy will be measured by how hard the teams that follow them work to live up to what they started.” Mariemont finished the season 7-4. Badin improved to 9-2 and advanced to meet Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy Nov. 16 in the second round. CHCA beat Madeira 19-0 in its playoff opener.


The Tigers lost in their Division II playoff game Nov. 8 with Mount Healthy. The Owls got out to a 26-6 halftime lead and went on to beat Withrow 40-19. Senior Malik Bland was 13-23 passing for 174 yards and three touchdowns. Bland connected with Malik Jackson in the first quarter to pull the Tigers within one of the Owls. Later, Bland wiped away the 20-point half-

Moeller outscored GCL rival St. Xavier 21-3 in the second half en route to a 42-17 win in Division I Region 2 playoff action Nov. 9 at Lockland Stadium. “I thought our kids battled hard in the first half,” St. X coach Steve Specht said. “The wheels kind of fell off… in the second (half). Turnovers killed us.” The Bombers went down 14-0 early after their first three possessions resulted in punts. They finally got on the board after Moeller quarterback Gus Ragland’s pass was deflected and ended up in the hands of Bomber free safety David Leisring, who returned it to the Crusader 26-yard line. Senior quarterback Nick Tensing scored from 1-yard out to make it 14-7 with 11:57 to play in the half. After another Moeller score, the Bombers answered with a 76-yard scoring drive that resulted in a Tensing 15-yard touchdown pass to Peter Gavin. From that point on, the Bomber offense went numb, as Tensing tossed three second-half interceptions. The Bombers did not have the services of running back Ben Glines due to a knee injury, according to Specht, and managed 109 rushing yards on 28 attempts. Moeller piled up 631 total yards, while St. X finished with 302. St. X finishes the season 5-6, marking its first losing season since 2008 when they went 4-6 and missed the playoffs.

St. Xavier cross country goes back-to-back By Tom Skeen


The St. Xavier High School cross country team made it back-toback state titles after winning the Division I race Nov. 2 at National Trail Raceway in Hebron. The Bombers tallied 46 points, blowing away second-place Dublin Jerome (106) and setting the mark for the lowest score since the race changed to a 5K in 1982. “I look at how we performed at state and it’s really hard to find a flaw with anything that happened,” coach Mike Dehring said. “… The kids performed about as well as we possibly could have hoped.” Senior Michael Hall paced the Bombers,

much like he did throughout the season, with a fourth-place finish. Fellow senior Evan Stifel finished fifth and junior Michael Vitucci was eighth. “It’s very rewarding,” Hall said. “The work we’ve been putting in since last year, we knew it would be something special. … Evan and I knew we had to step up and lead the team this year and putting in the hard work this year and over the summer; a state championship, district title, regional title, made it all worth it in the end.” Hall and Stifel were the lone returners from last year’s state title team and were also members of the 2011 team that finished sixth at state. Their three years of varsity experience made them leaders of the 2013 squad.

From left, senior Michael Hall, senior Evan Stifel, junior Brad Eagan, junior Michael Vitucci, junior Cole Grabowski, senior Jax Talbot and senior Jack Krug make up the seven members of the St. Xavier cross country team that won the state championship Nov. 2, giving them back-to-back state titles for the first time in school history.THANKS TO ST. XAVIER HIGH SCHOOL

“Workouts go as they go and they dictate, more or less, everything whether they say it or not,” Dehring said. Their leadership comes from different perspectives. Stifel has always been a runner who isn’t as vocal as Hall, who

comes from a basketball and football background. The combination of the two styles went over well in the Bomber locker room throughout the season. “It’s great to have both of those (styles) together,” Dehring said, who

has been head coach since 2005. “Michael brings a different perspective, which has been really, really good for the team.” The state title gives St. X five in school history, tying Elder High School for the most in Southwest

Ohio. “Elder is one of the prestige programs in the state and to tie them means a lot to us,” Dehring said, who joined the coaching staff in 1993. The 2013 season marked the 25th time since 1987 the Bombers qualified for the state meet. This postseason run was a special one in that they set the lowest average time in state meet history, tied their own district record score of 19 and won their thirdconsecutive regional title. Along with Vitucci, Brad Eagan (34th place at state) and Cole Grabowski (29th) return next year. Other 2013 state team members were seniors Jack Krug of Hyde Park (82nd) and Jax Talbot (92nd).

Traditions make lasting impressions Our school district is steeped in tradition. I love seeing so many of our students riding their bikes to and from school; the flagraising ceremonies in the beginning of the school year made the first day even more special; and my kids are still talking about our annual homecoming parade, catching candy and cheering on our band and homecoming court. Of course there are other traditions as well - ParentGrandparent Day, the K-6 Daddy Daughter Dance, au-

thor visits, Camp Kern and many more! This week, we celebrate yet another great tradition with Steven our HallowEstepp een parades in COMMUNITY PRESS Terrace Park GUEST COLUMNIST and Mariemont. Mariemont City Schools is known for its commitment to excellence in individualized educational opportunities as a high-performing school

Better serving veterans in the digital age Nearly 24 years ago, American leadership helped bring down the Berlin Wall without firing a shot. Now, our service members and veterans are up against a new wall, a wall of bureaucracy. This wall complicates nearly every facet of life as they transition from active duty service to veteran status. This Veterans Day, we must renew our commitment to those who have served us. Our task begins by ensuring that their medical records, which document years or decades of service, seamlessly follow them from uniformed to veteran status. The House of Representatives is taking action to push both the Departments of Defense and Veterans Affairs to realize this goal. Our troops face numerous challenges after they serve: transitioning to civilian life, finding a career or continuing their education, to name just a few. Our veterans should not have to serve as couriers between the DoD and VA too. It’s an additional and unnecessary burden. Our two biggest departments are still not fully capable of digitally communicating in the 21st century. Early in his presidency, President Obama charged these two departments to “build a seamless system of integration with a single goal: when a member of the Armed Forced separates from the military, he or she will no longer have to walk paperwork from a DoD duty station to a local VA health center; their electronic records will transition along with them and remain with them forever.” This vision has devolved into a series of missed milestones, shifting priorities and ballooning budgets. The House Veterans’ Affairs Committee learned earlier this year that these failures have led President Obama and both departments to abandon the original goal of one system, and instead plan continued reliance on separate systems integrated together to connect electronic health records. I served as an Army combat surgeon in Iraq and still serve as a Reservist. I know that my fellow military members,

when they retire, should not have to continue to wage war at home against bureaucracies and paperBrad work. And yet, Wenstrup a doctor treatCOMMUNITY PRESS ing veterans GUEST COLUMNIST cannot seamlessly access the medical history of their patient because that history is housed in a separate Defense Department system. VA doctors report that initial steps are improving this digital sharing, while still on separate systems. The House of Representatives is working to tackle these issues through the bipartisan H.R. 1960. Important sections call for basic interoperability capabilities within a year, meaning that doctors on both sides will be able to readily view medical history files. By 2016, we are demanding full system integration between the two departments. These are essential steps towards realizing a system that seamlessly communicates medical history files between the departments, without forcing the burden on to the shoulders of our transitioning veterans. Ultimately, I believe one system will best serve our troops and veterans as they seek care, and full integration is steering the departments in the right direction. Fully integrating these electric health records isn’t just about helping transitioning veterans, it’s also essential to reducing our veterans’ disability backlog. We know that fully developed disability claims, those with complete medical history files, take half the amount of time to complete compared to claims filed with incomplete or missing data. It’s discouraging for our troops, our veterans, and our doctors to face a wall of bureaucracy that hinders care. They deserve a lasting solution that honors their legacy and service.

district, but it is this commitment to tradition that sets us apart from any other district I have encountered. And as I get to know this community more and more, I know that it is the parents, volunteers, businesses and village officials who support us every day and make these school traditions possible. We could not give our students the experience of interacting with nationally acclaimed authors without the help of the volunteers that coordinate the visits. Our sixth-grade students

could not spend a week at Camp Kern without the assistance of the parents and community members that make that experience possible. And we could not allow our students - from the seniors in the marching band to the kindergarteners collecting candy - to walk in the Halloween parades without the watchful eye of our local police departments. These traditions turn into memories that many students will never forget, giving them roots and experiences that help them proceed

through life as caring and compassionate people and strong leaders. I know we often speak about the value of the education provided by Mariemont City Schools (and it’s true, we do have high standards for the education we provide to our students) but sometimes it’s the intangible that makes a lasting impression in the lives of our children - the time spent, the smiles given and the memories made.

Steven Estepp is superintendent of the Mariemont City School District.

CH@TROOM Last week’s question State Sen. Bill Seitz has introduced legislation which would redefine the standards for third parties to appear on Ohio’s ballot, including a minimum requirement of 56,000 signatures to get on the ballot and receiving at least 3 percent of the vote in a presidential election to stay on the ballot. Do you support Seitz’s proposal? Why or why not?

“Because I am ignorant of the current process, if any, for third parties getting onto the ballot, I can’t gauge the value of this proposal. If the proposal

is more restrictive – or less restrictive – then I would like for Sen. Seitz to justify his reason for the change.” R.V.

“Yes, I do support Sen. Seitz’s proposal, especially because it could get the tea party hypocrites on the ballot against Democrats and Republicans. This can only mean more Democrats getting elected to legislative office as the conservative vote gets broken into smaller and more meaningless chunks!” TRog

NEXT QUESTION Several major retailers and malls will be open for holiday shopping throughout Thanksgiving Day. Is this a good idea and do you plan to plan to take advantage of the extended hours? Why or why not? Every week we ask readers a question they can reply to via e-mail. Send your answers to with Chatroom in the subject line.

Liqueur, salad recipes kick off holiday season Thanksgiving will be here before you know it and some of you are already preparing your grocery list. Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday since it’s just about food, family and Rita friends – Heikenfeld no preRITA’S KITCHEN sents required. Yes, it can get stressful, especially if you’re hosting the feast. As I tell you every year, it’s not only about the food, but who sits in the chairs. Some advice from one who has been there, done that: Parsley and whipping cream are great culinary BandAids. During one of my recent classes, the subject of limoncello for the holidays came up. If you want to give this as a gift or serve it at Christmas, it’s best to start the process now.

Double Citrus Limoncello

The great thing about this is it keeps just about forever in the freezer. You can use all lemons

for classic limoncello. This year I made some with a combo of lemons and limes. It was different, and good. 2 pounds lemons, thick skinned 4 limes, thick skinned if you can find them 4 cups good quality 100 proof vodka 3 cups sugar 3 cups water

Pour vodka in large gallon glass jar or container. Wash fruit very well using hot water to remove wax coating. Pat dry. Remove zest with a vegetable peeler. The zest is the colored part. If some of the white part underneath the skin is visible, cut it off. That’s the pith and it’s very bitter (though it is the most nutritious part of the peel). If you can’t get it all off, do the best you can. Place zest in jar with vodka and cover. Let sit at room temperature for at least a week, or up to three weeks. The vodka will take on the color and flavor of the citrus as it steeps. Bring sugar and water to a simmer and stir until sugar dissolves and thickens a bit. Let cool and then add that to vod-

ka mixture and stir. Strain and put in pretty bottles. Seal and chill in refrigerator for a couple of weeks, at least. To use, serve straight over ice chips, mix with sparkling wine or mineral water and a lemon curl, toss with fresh fruit, serve over ice cream, frozen yogurt or simple cake.

Holiday Waldorf salad

For Will, a Colerain Township reader. For the life of me, I can’t remember the origin of this recipe. I think it was from another reader whose name I obviously misplaced. Regardless, this is one of the tastiest Waldorf salads you’ll ever eat. Mix together:

1 tablespoon vinegar or more to taste 1 cup milk

sticks ⁄2 cup dark rum (optional)


Let sit in refrigerator several hours before serving.

Hot buttered cider

Add more or less of any ingredient, to your taste. This is a nice offering before the Thanksgiving dinner. ⁄2 stick butter ⁄2 cup dark brown sugar 1 ⁄2 gallon apple cider 2 oranges, sliced and seeds removed Dash or two ground cloves 2 3-inch long cinnamon 1 1

Melt butter and add brown sugar. Add cider and cook until sugar is dissolved. Add orange slices, cloves, cinnamon sticks and rum. Bring to boil and then simmer 10 minutes. Serves about 10.

horseradish sauce) after mashing. Check your bottled horseradish if it’s been in the refrigerator a while. It should be nice and white. If it tastes vinegary or not really spicy, it’s old and needs to be replaced.

Joining Parker will be Tom “Mr. Perfect” Browning, former Reds coach Tommy Helms, and local favorites Buddy Bell and Kal Daniels. John Popovich from Channel 9 and WLWT’s George Vo-

gel will also share baseball memories. There will be time for Q&A from the audience. In parts of 19 bigleague seasons from 197391, Parker hit well above .300 with 339 home runs. He averaged 23 homers per year during his years as a Pittsburgh Pirate from 1975-79. Parker was named the 1978 NL MVP and finished in the top three of the voting on three other occasions. He played in seven All Star Games, including 1985 and 1986 as a Cincinnati Red. Talkin’ Baseball also recognizes the valuable work of Cincinnati’s Parkinson’s Wellness, a chapter of the American Parkinson Disease Association.

Eli Lilly recently sent workers in red shirts on a goodwill mission to communities across the country and around world as part of Eli Lilly’s Global Day of Service. Fifteen pharmaceutical representatives from southwest Ohio wielded paint brushes

and drill motors at Stepping Stones in Indian Hill, which serves children and adults with disabilities. The volunteers painted the fence surrounding Stepping Stones’ outdoor pool and constructed cubbies for swimmers to stow their backpacks and clothes.

ABC Pediatric Therapy opens doors on Red Bank ABC Pediatric Therapy Network is the newest tenant at The Merchants of Red Bank. ABC joins existing tenants Construction Process Solutions and Play It Again Sports and recently opened for business. ABC Pediatric Therapy Network, a multidisciplinary pediatric

therapy facility including speech, occupational and physical therapy programs, has four locations around Cincinnati. Its newest facility along Red Bank Road is just under 4,400 square feet and boast a full-size jungle gym inside the premises. “At ABC we want our services to be as effec-

tive, convenient, and affordable as possible. Our new Red Bank Road location helps us do this and allows us to continue living our mission of ‘Creating the best life for all children,’” owner Diane Crecelius said. “The Red Bank Road Corridor location plus the proximity to several inner-ring suburb com-

munities makes this a recipe for success,” Emmy Cooper of MYC said about ABC’s new outlet. The Merchants of Red Bank is located at the corner of Red Bank Expressway and Red Bank Road. It is one of MYC’s nine commercial properties in the greater Cincinnati market.

Alcohol and other drug use among teens is a major public health problem in the United States. Every community, including the Mariemont School District, is affected by the decisions of our young people, as is every family. Community members in the Mariemont School District recently attended the official launch of the Warrior Coalition. The Warrior Coalition is a group of community leaders and parents from Columbia Township, Fairfax, Mariemont, Mariemont School District and Terrace Park, who have come together to form a local coalition as part of the Coalition for a Drug-Free Greater Cincinnati (CDFGC), an organization co-founded by Terrace Park resident, Sen. Rob Portman. Following many meetings to discuss the drug and alcohol issues in the Mariemont School District, this grass-roots coalition’s vision is that every child in this community grows up in a healthy environment that is free of alcohol and drug abuse. The Warrior Coalition’s mission is awareness, education and prevention. At the recent launch event, current members invited the community to join forces in accomplishing this mission. The 2012 PRIDE Student Drug Use Survey of Mariemont junior high and high school students indicated that more than

65 percent of Mariemont High School seniors are drinking alcohol and more than 35 percent are smoking marijuana. The average age of first consumption is 14. In addition, in November of 2012, the Warrior Coalition partnered with the CDFGC to survey parents in the area about their opinions of drug and alcohol abuse. More than 88 percent responded that they would support the development of a community coalition that would work to protect the children. The Warrior Coalition will have a presence in every school in the Mariemont School District. Town Hall meetings and parenting workshops will be organized so that all parents in the district have the resources they need to help their children make healthy, drugfree decisions. In addition, prevention strategies will be discussed at regular Warrior Coalition meetings and these strategies will be implemented throughout the community. High school and junior high students will coordinate efforts of the Warrior Coalition within their school, along with guidance from Coalition for a Drug-Free Greater Cincinnati, members of the Warrior Coalition and school administration. The Warrior Coalition will also partner with the schools and local churches to host motivational speakers for children and parents.

BRIEFLY Quilts for a cause

Everyone has countless different T-shirts in their closets. They may be souvenirs from vacations, reminders of the 10K you ran, or a collection of the teams you joined in school. Rather than taking up space in your closet, those

T-shirts can be made into a snuggly quilt from T’s to Quilts. Kindervelt #4 is selling raffle tickets for your own custom quilt. If you are the lucky winner, you provide the 15 T-shirts and we turn them into a 4by-6 foot fleece-lined quilt. The drawing will be at

Kindervelt’s Markt from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., Nov. 23, at The Syndicate in Newport, Ky. Contestants do not need to be present to win. Tickets are $5 each or 5 for $20 and can be purchased any time before the drawing. All the money raised will go to the Heart Insti-

tute at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center. Contact Paula Gottdiner at or 794-9935 for raffle tickets or more information.
