HYDE PARK — The Hyde Park Neighborhood Council is trying to stop the removal of more than 100 ash trees in the community. Neighborhood Council officials have filed an appeal to prevent removal of the trees. The appeal will be discussed at an upcoming meeting of the Cincinnati Parks Board of Commissioners The meeting will be 9 a.m. Thursday, Nov. 15, at the Cincinnati Parks administrative office, 950 Eden Park Drive. A total of 126 trees will be removed as part of a process to stop

the spread of the emerald ash borer. Council has argued treating the trees chemically is a preferable alternative to removing them entirely. “There are multiple qualified studies that say if the trees are treated they can be protected,” said Hyde Park Neighborhood Council member Carl Uebelacker. The city does provide residents with an option to treat the trees themselves, but Uebelacker said the city should cover these costs and not the residents, especially if cheaper alternatives are not considered.

BECAUSE COMMUNITY MATTERS

Removal of the ash trees in Hyde Park began in 2006. Uebelacker said roughly 175 trees were removed. He said the plan was for the Urban Forestry Board to remove a portion of the trees and then replant them on a six-year cycle in three phases. Dave Gamstetter, a natural resource manager for the Cincinnati Park Board, said the ash trees were evaluated under several categories. Two of the categories include healthy trees or trees that are lightly affected or considered a moderate risk. A total of 62 trees fall under this category. These trees are not planned for removal

at this stage. However, the 126 trees which are scheduled for removal are dead or infested with the emerald ash bore, according to Gamstetter. Removal of these trees will likely start in early 2013. Gamstetter said the option for the city to chemically treat these trees would not be economically feasible. “I don’t think all of the costs have been considered,” he said. Additionally, Gamstetter said the impact on the tree canopy in the area would be minimal. “We are talking about a third of 1 percent of the trees in Hyde Park,”

he said. Hyde Park resident Lorraine Downing, who has an ash tree that has not been marked for removal, said she is not opposed to the loss of the ash trees “if all avenues have been taken.” “I’m leaning more toward caution,” she said. Uebelacker said if the city does proceed with the removal of the ash trees, council will contact the affected residents. He said council will inform the residents of how they can get a permit to treat the trees themselves. This would save the trees from destruction, he said.

Roundabout feasibility study begins By Rob Dowdy

COLUMBIA TWP. — Residents and local government officials will soon get answers involving a proposed six-way roundabout on Plainville Road. Columbia Township has been working for several years to construct a roundabout at the sixway intersection of Murray Avenue with Plainville and Kubicki Madisonville roads, which borders the village of Mariemont. A roundabout is a road junction in which traffic travels Lemon counter-clockwise around a central point. Mariemont Village Council nixed the proposal in 2010, but the village's Planning Commission agreed in April to reconsider and move forward with a study. Columbia Township Administrator Michael Lemon said a feasibility study at the intersection will create a list of alternatives to the current intersection design. The study will cost $42,000, which will be paid with a grant from the Ohio Department of

Transportation. Hamilton County Engineer Theodore Hubbard said the feasibility study will investigate several options for the intersection, which drivers have called confusing and frustrating, especially during morning and evening rush hours. Along with the roundabout and maintaining the intersection as it is, Hubbard said the consultants also will explore keeping Plainville Road as a through street with stop signs on Murray Avenue and Madisonville Road and installing a standard traffic signal. "We'll take a look at existing traffic volumes and projected (volumes) and apply that to the level of service, (which is) based on minimizing delay," he said. The study also includes how many vehicles are sitting at the intersection and how efficiently traffic travels through the intersection, Hubbard said. Each option will be ranked and then presented to the communities and stakeholders for more feedback and discussion, he said. KZF Design, which is performing the study, will collect data and feasible alternatives for the intersection will be explored throughout November, with a summary of findings delivered by the end of the month.

OAKLEY — The fate of the former Oakley train station remains undecided. During the Nov. 7 Oakley Community Council meeting, Board President Peter Draugelis recommended removing the former station from the current site or tearing it down.

Local election news wrap-up Gannett News Service

There were a number of levies, statehouse races and other issues on the Nov. 6 ballot. Here’s what voters decided:

Council terms

Voters have doubled the term length for Cincinnati City Council members from two to four years – unless provisional ballots come back strong against the measure. Unofficial election results showed Issue 4 passing by 2,183 votes, a less than 2 percentage point difference. In all, 61,191 people voted for and 59,008 voted against the measure. An automatic recount would occur if the difference is less than one-half of 1 percent of the total votes

cast on the measure. Right now it would not qualify for a recount, but Tim Burke, co-chairman of the Hamilton County Board of Elections, said roughly 15,000 provisional ballots were cast Tuesday, which could change the outcome. If it ultimately passes, the charter amendment will take effect after next November’s council election. The amendment would not alter council’s term limit, which remains eight years.

declines and mandated expenses increase.

County levies

The levy renewal for Cincinnati Public Schools passed handily, 67 percent to 33 percent, in unofficial totals. The measure renews a five-year, 8.55-mill emergency operating levy that expires in 2013. That levy generates $51.6 million a year – or 11 percent of the district’s annual budget. It costs property owners $253.80 per year for this levy for every $100,000 of property valuation, about $10 less than they pay now. The school district has said this levy will help maintain financial stability in as its state funding

Two Hamilton County levies — one that helps seniors stay in their homes and the other that helps the mentally ill — passed by with the largest ever amount of yes votes. Hamilton County voters approved the Senior Services levy with almost 75 percent of the vote, according to unofficial results. Five years ago the levy passed with 70 percent of the vote. No Hamilton County levy has passed by that much since the 1980s. The Senior Services levy will raise about $19.3 million annually for the next five years. It costs property owners $29.34 a year for every $100,000 of property valuation. Voters approved the Mental Health levy with 68 percent of the vote, according to unofficial totals. Five years ago the levy passed with 55 percent of the vote. The Mental Health levy will raise about $33.9 million annually for the next five years. It costs property owners

Democratic incumbent Denise Driehaus defeated her Republican challenger Michael Gabbard in the Ohio House of Representatives 31st District race. Driehaus received 71 percent of the vote, and Gabbard received almost 29 percent of the vote, according to unofficial totals. This will be the third term for Driehaus, 49, who defeated Luke Brockmeier and Terry Tranter in the Democratic primary. She was first elected to the House in 2008. Previously a Westside stronghold, District 31 now resembles in shape a carved-up pumpkin’s ragged mouth. It reaches from Clifton in the west, through East Walnut Hills, parts of Hyde Park, Madisonville and Oakley, and into St. Bernard, Norwood, Silverton and Amberley Village.

Republican Peter Stautberg defeated his Democratic challenger Nathan Wissman in the Ohio House of Representatives 27th District race. Stautberg, who currently represents the 34th House District, received about 67 percent of the vote and Wissman received close to 33 percent of the vote, according to the unofficial results from the Hamilton County Board of Elections.

locate and perform basic renovations to the structure was estimated to cost from $250,000 to $300,000. However, he said a local architect has indicated the cost could potentially be less, possibly around $100,000. Rozen has been working with the Cincinnati Recreation Commission on a plan that would involve moving the train station near the Oakley pool on Paxton Road. Rozen said options being considered for the train station are a shelter for summer camp and community programs as well a backdrop for a proposed amphitheater. “We can save a building that is a historical landmark to Oakley (and) that has a viable use for the community,” he said. Chris Bigham, Cincinnati Recreation Commission recreation director, said the the commission is open to any suggestions Oakley has in regard to use of the structure. However, he said Oakley would be responsible for funding of the project. Rozen said several funding options are being considered. The Oakley Community Council will likely discuss the train station further at its December meeting. Council meets 7 p.m. the first Tuesday of the month at the Oakley Recreation Center, 3882 Paxton Ave.

volvement meeting will be scheduled for the first week of December and again in January, at which time a completed feasibility study will be issued. “We’re promoting public input and participation in this as much as possible,” he said. Township Trustee David Kubicki said people in the township and Mariemont, which would have to give approval for the potential project to move forward, should await details of the study before jumping to conclusions about the roundabout, which is only one of multiple possible options for the intersection. “If it’s not safe and isn’t good for the community I’ll be the first guy going against it,” he said. “Let’s listen to the facts first.”

Mariemont voters approve a renewal levy By Lisa Wakeland

lwakeland@communitypress.com

Mariemont voters approved a 3.5-mill permanent improvement renewal levy Nov. 6. More than 72 percent voted for the renewal and about 27 percent voted against it, according to the unofficial results from the Hamilton County Board of Elections.

The levy will generate $257,474 per year for five years with tax collections starting in 2013. It will cost the owner of a home with a market value of $100,000 about $58 per year, Clerk Tony Borgerding said before the election. That’s the same cost as the current levy. Resident Jack Butcher said he voted for the levy “because it’s my communi-

ty and there are enough people that don’t care about communities out there.” Resident Nicole Giordullo also said she voted for the levy because it was a renewal and won’t raise her taxes. But resident Shannon Johnson said she voted against it “because I’m taxed to death right now.” The money is set aside for capital expenses and

cannot be used for employee salaries or general operating costs for the village. Resident Fran Turner voted for the levy because the village needs the money to pay for projects, she said. The levy funds can be used for street repairs, curb or sidewalk installations, storm sewers, tree maintenance, upgrades to parks or hillside erosion

control, Borgerding said. The permanent improvement fund also can be used for equipment and facilities for the village police, fire, maintenance or administrative departments.

The village receives income from two permanent improvement levies – the one that voters approved this year and another fiveyear renewal approved in 2011.

Mariemont considers grill restrictions lwakeland@communitypress.com

Mariemont is considering restricting charcoal and gas grill use for some residents. Assistant Fire Chief Tim Feichtner wrote in a memo that the village is still having an issue with charcoal and gas grills on the balconies of multifamily buildings even though state fire code already restricts this practice. Feichtner suggested the village create its own ordinance so hearings on the fire code violations are not

sent to the state of Ohio for resolution. Mayor Dan Policastro sent the issue to council’s Safety Committee and said officials should put this ordinance into place as soon as possible. Councilman Cortney Scheeser noted that singlefamily and two-family units have more leeway than condominiums or apartments in the village. Ohio prohibits any charcoal or open-flame cooking devices on balconies that are within 10 feet of the building with few exceptions.

The grills are permitted if balconies and decks are protected by automatic sprinkler systems or the local fire code official determines that the charcoal grills are monitored by an adult at all times, a portable fire extinguisher is present on the balcony and all nonstructural combustible material is not closer than 10 feet to the grill. Feichtner recommended additional language for the village’s ordinance that would make it stronger than the state fire code. These restrictions include that charcoal or gas

grills can’t be used or stored on balconies or patios of multiunit buildings, which is defined as any dwelling with more than two units. It would also specify that these restrictions would be in place whether the unit was owned or rented. There is one additional exception he suggested, which states that small electric grills would be permitted. No date for the Safety Committee meeting has been set.

Mariemont students sail through competition

The Cincinnati area may not be a hotbed for competitive sailing, but thanks to the efforts of a handful of high school students, Mariemont High School now boasts the only high school sailing team in Ohio. Senior Griffin Rolander, with the help of senior Alec Ahrens, started the sailing team two years ago, and it has now grown to five members including sophomore Nick Weston, junior Allie Howe and senior Olivia Cooke. Both Rolander and Ahrens have sailed since they were young children during summer

vacations in Wisconsin and Michigan, respectively. “I like sailing because it’s a sport different from any other sport,” said Rolander. “It’s takes a certain set of skills, both physical and mental, and there’s nothing like ripping on the water.” Mariemont participated and found success in five events so far this season, traveling to Michigan, Indiana and Illinois. Rolander and Weston won the A Fleet of the Grosse Ile Invitational in Michigan in September, beating out 15 other high schools for the title.

The pair traveled on to place 3rd out of 23 A Fleet teams at the Culver Invitational in Indiana in October. At the Turkey Leg Regatta in Spring Lake, Michigan, Rolander and Weston won the A Fleet once again, beating out 17 other teams. Ahrens, Cooke and Howe rallied to place 9th in the B Fleet. Most notably, Rolander, Weston and Ahrens placed fourth at the regional Great Oaks Qualifier in Lake Forest, Ill., qualifying them as one of just six Midwest teams to sail in the Great Oaks National High School Champion-

ship in New Orleans Nov. 10-11, where they sailed on Lake Ponchartrain against high schools from across the nation. “I love the strategy of sailing,” said Ahrens. “It’s the closest you can get to flying without a pilot’s license.” Although the sailing team is just a club right now, Ahrens and Rolander have plans to contact the PTO and Board of Education to petition for sailing as a sanctioned high school sport. Even though they are both graduating this school year, there are members of the team that they think

are willing and able to carry the sailing team at Mariemont into the future. “I know we both plan on coming back from college from time to time to help coach if we can,” said Ahrens. “It’s a sport we’ve both been involved with for most of our lives and we hope other students get excited about it too.” Mariemont is an active member of MISSA, the Midwest regional governing body for high school sailing. MISSA is part of the Interscholastic High School Sailing Association, which has seven regions in the US.

‘D’ PROPELS SUMMIT TO STATE SOCCER TITLE

SCD holds opponents scoreless in playoffs By Nick Dudukovich ndudukovich @ communitypress .com

COLUMBUS — “Surreal.” That’s the way Summit Country Day head coach Barnard Baker described winning the Division III state boys soccer championship. The Silver Knights secured its second soccer trophy in school history by shutting out Gates Mills Hawken, 2-0, for the title at Crew Stadium Nov. 10. It’s the Silver Knights’ first boys soccer championship since 1999. Holding the opposition scoreless is nothing to new to the boys of the Summit. The squad didn’t allow a postseason goal despite playing a Murderers’ Row of competition. Five of the schools the Silver Knights had to take down en route to the title were ranked in the top 10 of the Ohio coaches’ poll. Baker said his program has usually taken an “attack” first mentality — but that changed this season. “From our forwards to our goalie, we had a mantra — defend first,” Baker said. Summit goalie Ryan Hall of Cleves played a big hand in propelling the Knights to a title, despite battling a shoulder injury that nearly kept him out of the state semifinal against Worthington Christian Nov. 7. But the senior persevered, and will leave Summit as the state’s career leader in shutouts with 47. “Ryan’s fearless and he’s tough and you’re never going to get this moment back,” Baker said. “I applaud him immensely.” Hall knows Summit’s defense wouldn’t have been as dominant if it weren’t for the guys who play in

Summit senior Joey Kunkel heads a ball during the Silver Knights’ 3-0 win over Worthington Christian during the D-III state semifinals at Centerville Stadium Nov. 7. NICK DUDUKOVICH/THE COMMUNITY PRESS front of him. “Shutouts are never just me,” Hall told Gannett News Service. “It’s a team effort. Not giving up a goal in the entire tournament is unexplainable.” The combination of Jake Rawlings of Loveland, Joey Kunkel of Delhi Township, Jack Meininger of Mariemont and Ben Emery of Hyde Park have formed what Bak-

er believes might be the best back line he’s ever seen during his time at Summit Country Day. “They’re the reason why we are here,” Baker said. GOAL!: Both of Summit’s goals in the state final came off the foot of senior Caelan Hueber of Newtown. The first one came off an unexpected pass from teammate Ben

Emery. When Hueber took possession, he knew what to do. “I saw the goalie (in the middle) and I just figured I had to bury it,” he said. Moments later, he put the ball into the left corner pocket to put Summit up, 1-0. Hueber ended his varsity career with 15 goals during the 2012 campaign. He netted 35 in his varsity career. No shot: Summit had 20 shots, with eight on goal, while Hawken was held to just five shots and one, respectively. A great year: Rawlings began 2012 as a member of state championship basketball team, and he’ll leave the current year with a state soccer title.

Summit QB Woods leads under center Silver Knights’ signal caller garners gridiron attention By Nick Dudukovich ndudukovich@communitypress.com

HYDE PARK — As a point guard for the state-champion Summit Country Day basketball team, Antonio Woods is often thought of as the quarterback on the hardwood. On the football field, there are no analogies. Woods actually is the quarterback— and he used the 2012 campaign to make a name for himself on the gridiron. The Summit signal caller tore up the Miami Valley Conference after passing for 1,205 yards and rushing for 873 more. His ground/air efforts resulted in 29 total touchdowns. “He’s a nightmare to game plan against,” said Summit head coach Mike Brown. “He can always extend any play.” Brown added that there’s a leadership element to playing both positions, which he believes Woods possesses. What he’s done on basketball court and with him playing quarterback… it’s just his natural leadership ability,” Brown said. “You’ve got to have a guy that’s

poised but that can get fired up when he gets on the field.” Woods is no stranger to the leadership tag that usually comes with playing point guard and quarterback. The Hartwell resident’s taken snaps since he was 5 years old and relished the opportunity to show what he could do under the Friday night lights. “(Playing quarterback) has been a big part of my life,” Woods said. “Most of the people know me from basketball, but now I have the opportunity to show my skills in football and I’m getting recognized a lot more,” he said. Those paying attention to Woods’ feats include UC, Miami University, Elon and most recently, Northwestern. “I really couldn’t believe it at first. Northwestern has been improving a lot over the years. I’ve been keeping my eyes on them a lot,” Woods said. “It was great they were showing interest.” Woods set a school record for touchdowns in a single game when he played a hand in six scores during the Silver Knights’ win over Cincinnati Country Day Oct. 12. Five of those touchdowns came via pass, which was also a school record. Woods said he worked on the aerial part of the game a lot dur-

SUMMIT SEASON ENDS A week after celebrating the school’s first playoff win, the Silver Knights’ were eliminated in the Division V Region 20 semifinals 58-14 by Covington. Summit didn’t get on the board until Christian Kuethe hauled in a 4-yard touchdown pass with 6:47 to play in the fourth quarter. The Silver Knights’ ended the season 11-1. Summit committed three turnovers and had just one net yard of offense in the first half while running just 13 plays. Two turnovers came on kickoff returns that were lost via fumbles.

ing the offseason. Brown believes Woods’ form and technique have improved, while adding that the quarterback doesn’t have a “run first” mentality he relied on last season.

“He doesn’t necessarily have to run first,” Brown said. “He was able to hone in and pin point passes…(he didn’t) have to extend every play with his feet. (That) has helped him develop.” As Woods’ garners more atten-

tion, he continues to take everything in stride. He knows his teammates and coaches helped make him a better player and he’s most excited about helping Summit earn its first playoff win in school history. And with a senior season yet to play, Woods will continue his quest for improvement. “Hopefully, I’ll get just continue to have success, and get better get better and hopefully it will lead to a Division I scholarship some day,” he said.

This time the ball bounced Bishop Fenwick’s way. In a rematch of last year’s memorable Division III state semifinal, Fenwick ousted the Lady Knights’ from the playoffs in overtime, 1-0, at Hamilton’s Virgil M. Schwarm Stadium Nov. 6. In 2011, Summit celebrated an overtime victory – and went on to win the state title – but this season’s moment would belong to Fenwick forward Meghan Blank. After more than 87 minutes of play the game remained scoreless. But Blank placed her shot just inside the right upright to lift her squad to the state final. Summit (19-2-2) finished its season ranked No. 1 in the Enquirer DIII coaches’ poll and No. 2 in the state. Its only two losses were to Fenwick, the state’s top-ranked team. Summit won the Miami Valley Conference by going undefeated (6-0) in league play. “We’ve accomplished things the past three years that’s nothing close to what we’ve done here before,” said Summit head coach Michael Fee. “We’ve got some talented kids back next year. I’m proud of what we’ve been able to do here.” The 2012 campaign witnessed senior Elizabeth Williams become the school’s all-time leader in goals with 65. Tess Akgunduz, who played from 2006-2009, held the previous mark of 49. Williams also broke Akgunduz’s points record. Williams had 16 goals to go along with eight assists this fall, which gave her 154 career points, shattering Akgunduz’s mark of 120. Senior goalie Ayanna Parker, who has verbally committed to play for the University of Kentucky, also left her mark on the history books by netting 16 shutouts. Liz Arnold set the previous mark of 12 in 2011. Bryce Hueber also was a key offensive threat throughout the season as the midfielder scored 12 goals to go along with 12 assists.

CORRYVILLE — Though they’ve never really had a “true” home field, Moeller High School is familiar with several venues. Lockland Stadium is currently their official home field. Before that, the Crusaders played at old Galbraith Field near Kings Island. However, they’ve always managed to have a game or two at the University of Cincinnati’s Nippert Stadium. In the Gerry Faust/Pat Mancuso era, a Moeller vs. Princeton contest would often pack the home of the Bearcats better than the Bearcats themselves. Recently, the Skyline Chili Crosstown Showdown and playoffs have brought the Crusaders to UC. Their meeting with Lakota East Nov. 10 was therefore nothing new and the Crusaders played that way, thrashing the Thunderhawks 46-20. Moeller coach John Rodenberg didn’t see that type of convincing win coming. “They have a pretty good team,” he said. “It’s been a while since we played against the option. We got shook up early, then we came back and got disciplined. It was a good win for us.” Lakota East held a 7-3 first quarter lead thanks to an opening drive that lasted 8:35. The second quarter then quickly became the “Keith Watkins Show” as the Northwesternbound running back scored on runs of 17, 40 and 80 yards to give Moeller a 24-7 halftime lead. “(The) offensive line made some key blocks,” Watkins said. “I love them to death. I can’t do it without them.” The lead was so substantial that Watkins, suffering from heat cramps from the Indian summer temperature, didn’t play in the second half. Playing just two quarters, he still raced for 168 yards. “It was just a heat thing,” Watkins said. “It’s been awhile since we played in the heat. It was just dehydration. I didn’t hydrate enough. I could’ve gone back in, but there really wasn’t any need to.” Moeller went on to add rush-

Moeller senior Keith Watkins (3) runs 40 yards for a touchdown against Lakota East in the second quarter. Watkins also had scoring runs of 17 and 80 yards for the Crusaders in the 46-20 defeat of the Thunderhawks at Nippert Stadium Nov. 10. JOHN FUQUA II/THE COMMUNITY PRESS

ing touchdowns from Joe Eramo, quarterback Spencer Iacovone and back-up Gus Ragland to earn the 26-point win and another chance to play. “Just keep running it and keep the time off the clock,” Rodenberg said with a smile. In a game that featured11total passes from both teams, Moeller’s Iacovone was 2-3 for 13 yards, but ran 10 times for 95 yards. In a reserve role, senior Joe Eramo had 13 carries for 80 yards. “We thought we were going to run the ball pretty well,” Iacovone said. “Keith had a really good game and played out of his mind. Somebody plays like that and it’s kind of hard to stop them.” Iacovone will sign to play baseball with Marshall Nov. 14. He says there is a chance he could double-up and also play football for the Thundering Herd. The Crusaders face Colerain Nov. 17 back at Nippert Stadium. The Cardinals squeaked by Elder 35-34 in overtime a few hours after Moeller and Lakota East played. If anything, Moeller’s contest with Lakota East was a good tuneup for the Colerain game as both run similar offenses. “No doubt!” Rodenberg said. “It’s another option team.”

Official thanks voters, poll workers I would like to thank all of the voters who exercised their rights to vote in this general election. This area of the state saw a decent turnout, leading to the anticipated close contests Peter in many races. It is critical Stautberg COMMUNITY PRESS under our sysGUEST COLUMNIST tem of government to stay informed of issues and candidates, and exercising the right to vote at every opportunity. Moreover, thank you to all poll workers for their hard work

and public service on this recent and every Election Day. Poll workers are not highly compensated, yet they commit to being in one place about 14 hours on Election Day. Ohio’s voting system is structured so that the poll workers in each precinct are members of both political parties working together in a non-partisan manner. Frequently, these individuals operate remarkably calmly and cooperatively under the spotlight of local and national media, as well as observers from the respective political parties. Without their commitment to public service, the goal of having fair and free election days would not be achievable.

CH@TROOM Last week’s question Developers are studying the feasibility of building a hotel on the “Purple People Bridge” between Cincinnati and Newport. Do you think a hotel on the bridge is a good idea? Why or why not?

“I think the Purple People Bridge as a hotel is a great idea. Newport and the Bellevue, Ky., areas have developed into great places for both local and out of town residents. “As Cincinnati's banks development continues to expand, along with the more northern areas of the city such as the southern sections of Over-theRhine, Cincy will become a very nice tourist destination, particularly regionally, for long weekends. “It would be such a unique setting and the access to both sides of the river would be fantastic. I don't see any downside to it at all. I hope that the studies come back positive and development of the project can start in the near future.” I.P. “Such a building would need to be designed to withstand the stresses and strains of a structure that vibrates and moves. This is costly. Seems a better structure could be built on good old terra firma at less cost. “Deliveries and trash pickup would be a problem along with exposed utilities. But, given current city of Cincinnati thinking, they could seek to have the streetcar buzz by.” T.J. “Do I think a hotel on the Purple People bridge is a good idea? Not hardly. “Why do some people have such an urge to be different? There are many reasons why this isn't a good idea, but for openers a bridge isn't usually designed to support the weight of a building like a hotel, and I doubt there is anything that can be done to make it perfectly safe. “What's wrong with the triedand-true method of building things like hotels on the ground? What's next? Building a church on a runway at Lunken? Say, wait a minute ... that is an interesting thought. JUST KIDDING!” Bill B. “Whatever addle-brain nincompoop came up with this birdbrain idea isn't working with a full deck. How about pup tents?” M.F.D. “Personally I thought it was a joke when I first read it. Where is the money going to come from for this ridiculous venture. I thing we

If a guy is successful and has a wad to spend, let him spend it ... he will rise or fall (unlike GM/ Chrysler/Wall Street) by his success or failure.” K.P. “It certainly is an unusual idea. It will be a good idea if it is successful. It will be a bad idea if it fails. “I believe the mountain of red tape involved with constructing a new building onto an existing structure that spans a state boundary will be daunting. The next challenge is determining if that very special niche in downtown accommodations will attract enough customers. “If it goes forward I see it as an initial success, but a failure when the novelty wears off in five years or so.” R.V.

Finally, I would like to thank the voters of the new 27th House District for their support in re-electing me to serve as state representative. It is an honor to serve the individuals and families of this area by representing them in Columbus, and I look forward to continuing my service. We always have many challenges to confront at the state house, including education standards, education funding, budget issues, and encouraging business growth in the state. There are many respectable ideas of how to best approach these issues, and some are better than others. I look forward to continuing

to listen and understand the various points of view, and working with my colleagues to put in place common-sense legislation to move the state forward. On a brighter note, we are seeing a resurgence of economic activity where energy companies are exploring and drilling for oil and natural gas. This activity has lifted economically stagnant areas of the state, leading to improvements in infrastructure, and higher levels of employment due to growth in suppliers and service industries. It is our hope that we continue to see positive results from the responsible use of our natural resources for a number

of years. Thank you for allowing me to represent you. Ohio’s new 27th House District covers eastern Hamilton County and includes the cities of Milford and Loveland (inside Hamilton County); the Cincinnati neighborhoods of Mt. Lookout, Columbia Tusculum, Linwood, East End, East Walnut Hills, Walnut Hills, Mt. Washington, California and part of Hyde Park; the villages of Indian Hill, Fairfax, Mariemont, Newtown and Terrace Park; and the townships of Anderson, Symmes and part of Columbia. Peter Stautberg is the the new 27th House District state representative.

Smog season in review This summer’s high temperatures and dry conditions made for a busy smog season. Smog is an air pollutant that can cause severe health problems, particularly for children, the elderly and those with Megan respiratory Hummel conditions. COMMUNITY PRESS The two priGUEST COLUMNIST mary pollutants in smog are ground-level ozone (O3) and particulate matter (PM). Smog alerts during 2012 were all based on ozone. Ozone forms when nitrogen oxides from industry emissions combine with volatile organic compounds from vehicle exhaust in the presence of sunlight and heat. Over the past three years, the average number of smog alerts was 16. However, this summer’s weather made for perfect smog conditions, giving us 12 smog alerts lasting 27

days. This year, we had a sevenday long smog alert from June 28-July 4. Although smog monitoring will conclude on Oct. 31, it is important to keep in mind these tips to help cut back on air pollution year round: » Take the bus (METRO: 513-621-4455 or TANK: 859-3318265) » Carpool or vanpool (RideShare: 513-241-RIDE) » Ride a bike, in-line skate or walk instead of driving » Combine trips or eliminate unnecessary vehicle trips » Refuel your vehicle after 8 p.m.; do not top off when refueling and tighten the gas cap » Do not idle your vehicle » Avoid quick accelerations and sudden stops as they increase fuel consumption » Keep your vehicle maintained with properly inflated tires and timely oil changes » Avoid use of gasolinepowered lawn equipment » Avoid use of oil-based paints and stains » Conserve electricity » Spread the word

In making these small changes to your daily habits, you can help make the air safer and healthier in your community. Visit our website at www.SouthwestOhioAir.org to learn more about smog, or to view current Air Quality Index (AQI) levels in Southwest Ohio or call the AQI Hotline at 513-946-7753. The Southwest Ohio Air Quality Agency works with government agencies, businesses, communities and citizens to achieve and maintain healthy air quality for Butler, Clermont, Hamilton and Warren counties in Southwest Ohio.

Voters OK Columbia Twp. levy By Rob Dowdy COLUMBIA TWP. — Residents in Columbia Township voted Nov. 6 to renew a waste collection levy. The three-year, 3.5-mill waste collection renewal levy, was approved by 75 percent of voters (1,737) vs. 24 percent (567) against.

The current levy costs owners of a home with a market value of $100,000 about $103 per year. Township voters last approved a waste levy in 2009, which was also a renewal. The levy pays for weekly trash pick-up, twicemonthly brush pick-up and leaf pick-up. The levy is for three

years, and township Administrator Michael Lemon has said this is likely the last renewal for the waste collection levy. Columbia Township resident Carlos Fernandez said he voted against the renewal waste levy because he wants the township to use the money it has to continue its services. “I’m just opposed to any

taxes,” he said. Fernandez said he hopes Columbia Township can do more with less, which he said is what people outside of government have to do all the time. Resident Travis Gates voted in favor of the renewal because of the work done by the township’s public works department, and the need for waste col-

lection. “I think it’s important civil processes like that be supported financially,” Gates said. “I don’t want garbage collecting in my yard.” While this waste levy was a renewal, Lemon has noted in the past this is likely to be the last renewal before an increase is needed.

He said prior to the vote that waste costs per household have gone down approximately 20 percent, but at the same time the levy is collecting about 15 percent less than it did when it was approved by voters in 2003 due to state tax cuts and property devaluations.

It’s a “gala celebration of all things Irish.” That’s how Irish Heritage Center co-founder Maureen Kennedy describes the annual Green Tie Affair, which begins at 6:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 17. There will be plenty of entertainment, she said, including a performance from the McGing Irish Dancers and music from Silver Arm, Changeling and Mick McEvilley. Aidan Cronin, the consul general of Ireland, is the keynote speaker. Tickets are $50 for Irish Heritage Center members and $55 for non-members. The pub room will be open, and guests can enjoy a variety of hors d’oeuvres prepared by one of the center’s members. It’s their biggest fundraiser of the year and helped raise more than $10,000 in the past two

years, said co-founder Kent Covey. The money helps bring concerts, art exhibits, lectures, classes, theater and more to the Irish Heritage Center, 3905 Eastern Ave. in Columbia Tusculum. It also helps pay for repairs and renovations to the building, which is the former McKinley School. “It makes us go from surviving to the next level,” Kennedy said. One goal is to get air conditioning in the theater – the school’s former gymnasium – and Covey said the Green Tie Affair will be the kick off for the new capital campaign. It aims to raise $100,000 for improvements at the center. The Green Tie Affair is also the opening of the James Joyce exhibit, which is about the author’s life and works, and is on tour from the National Library of Ireland. The American Celtic Art exhibit is also on

display and features work from five artists including Columbia Tusculum resident Cindy Matyi. There will be a silent auction that includes items like tickets to the Crosstown Shootout between Xavier University and the University of Cincinnati, a basket of Irish whiskeys, artwork, wood carvings and more. It’s also the start of a raffle –$20 per ticket or three for $50 – that includes a weekend stay at Waterford Castle in Ireland and a contribution to travel expenses. The winner will be drawn on St. Patrick’s Day. Kennedy said the Green Tie Affair is open to all she she wants attendees to “feel like they’re in Ireland and experience the passion, the beauty, the talent and the awe-inspiring magic of the Emerald Isle.” More information is available by calling 5330100.

The John Stobart Foundation that promotes the education of young artists working in the classical tradition. Stobart has been drawn to Cincinnati by the “Open friendliness of the people, their contagious pride in their city, the magnificent Roebling suspension bridge and the city’s sce-

nic location on a bend in the Ohio River”. John A. Ruthven, winner of the Presidential Medal for the Arts, and who is often referred to as the “20th Century Audubon” is a naturalist, lecturer, author and an internationally recognized Master of Wildlife Art. Mr. Ruthven has recently created a painting of a mother wood duck launching her four young from the nest titled: “Ready, Set, Go.” Limited Edition prints of this most recent work are also available through the Eisele Gallery. Both artists will be available in the Eisele gallery during the opening reception of the exhibition Friday, Nov. 16, and Saturday, Nov. 17, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. to discuss their work and to personalize their books.

Three iPhone thefts at Terrace Park UDF By Lisa Wakeland lwakeland@communitypress.com

Holly Dewees was on her way to a morning tennis match when she made a quick stop at the United

Dairy Farmers in Terrace Park. But when she got back in her car Dewees noticed her iPhone was missing. “I normally lock (my car), but I was in a hurry and just ran in to get a bottle of water,” she said. “When I came out I knew exactly what happened because (my phone) had been sitting there.” Dewees asked the clerk working that day to call her phone, but it was al-

lot at the UDF at the corner of Wooster Pike and Elm Avenue, but occured at different times throughout the day. Terrace Park Police Chief Gerald Hayhow said in each incident only the phones were taken, and it was a crime of opportunity. “It only takes a second to lock your doors, and it only takes a second for people to reach in and get something that belongs to

you,” he said. “UDF (employees) have been great to work with and they want to help, but we’re still on U.S. 50 which is very transient. We get all kinds of folks in there and then they move on.” U.S. 50 crosses the entire country from Ocean City, Md., to Sacramento, Calif. Locally, the section known as Wooster Pike connects Milford to Cincinnati.

There were a couple of leads on two incidents, police reports show, but Hayhow said they don’t have any suspects. Dewees said she didn’t lose anything too important that was stored on her phone except a couple hundred photos of her children. “That was a bummer, but other than that ... I just hope people will be careful.”

They were obviously just looking for the iPhone.” Dewees’ case was one of three reported to the Terrace Park Police in a five-week span from Aug. 3 to Sept. 6.

YWCA celebrate Rising Stars cialist, American Red Cross (Columbia Tusculum) » Elizabeth Simmons, Attorney, Dinsmore & Shohl (Hyde Park) » Ellen Tischler, Director, P&G North American Oral Care, Procter & Gamble (Columbia Tusculum) » Amy Westheimer, Director of Sales, Cincinnati Commercial Contracting (Mariemont) Nomination criteria include having the qualities of an outstanding performer and demonstrating a potential to attain marked achievement in her chosen career. Specifically, Rising Stars were identified as younger professional women with proven leadership qualities who would benefit from interaction with Academy members and other Rising Stars. National studies have shown that this is the first generation of young women professionals that have a substantial base of exist-

ing, high-level career women as potential mentors. By giving the Rising Stars the opportunity to interact and network with career women of diverse backgrounds, this program provides these younger leaders with the opportunity to address topics that will enhance their ability to further their career success. On Oct. 18, the new class of Rising Stars attended a roundtable discussion event at the Queen City Club, featuring five topics of discussion that are relevant to younger women climbing the ladder of success. Each topic was facilitated by two members of the Academy of Career Women of Achievement. Sally Bush, director of Analytics for Macy’s Credit and Customer Service, and Diane Jordon Grizzard, author, speaker, and president/CEO of Thembi Speaks LLC, co-chair an Advisory Committee that

oversees the YWCA Rising Star program. Bush serves on the YWCA Racial Justice Committee, was a 2009 YWCA Rising Star, and a 2010 YWCA Rising Star Leadership Program participant. Jordon Grizzard is a 2010 Career Woman of Achievement and serves on the YWCA Mamie Earl Sells Scholarship Fund Committee. After the roundtable event, the Rising Stars attended the academy’s fall induction dinner where the 2012 YWCA Career Women of Achievement were inducted into the academy. One 2012 YWCA Rising Star, Meeka Owens, was asked to report to the academy on the topics discussed at the Rising Star Roundtable. The Rising Stars, academy and board members then heard from the keynote speaker and guest for the YWCA Fall Academy Induction Dinner, Gloria Lau, CEO of YWCA USA.

At the 2012 YWCA Rising Star announcement were, from left, 2012 Rising Star Meeka Owens; former YWCA board chair Kathy Beechem; YWCA President and CEO Charlene Ventura; YWCA Academy Co-Chair Nora Zorich; Co-Chair of the 2013 YWCA Salute to Career Women of Achievement Luncheon Linda Clement Holmes; YWCA Academy Co-Chair Tillie-Hidalgo-Lima; YWCA USA CEO Gloria Lau; Co-Chair of the 2013 YWCA Salute to Career Women of Achievement Luncheon Susan Branscome; and YWCA Rising Star Co-Chair Diane Jordon Grizzard.
