Use of emergency rule is questioned By Lisa Wakeland

Mariemont Village Council officially created its newest citizen advisory board. Council unanimously approved creating the South 80 Trails, Gardens and Park Advisory Board. Both the ordinance creating the board and the resolutions appointing its 11 members were passed as an emergency during the Nov. 11 meeting. Councilman Joe Stelzer, who is leaving council at the end of the year and was appointed to the South 80 advisory board, requested the emergency clause. He said they “want to get together as soon as possible” to discuss a possible grant with an applica-

tion deadline in January. Councilman Cortney Scheeser, who did not seek re-election and also will leave at the end of the year, raised some concerns about this blurring the line for what is really an emergency. He said using that clause can be troubling, “but this adds a layer of complexity” because it was not listed as an emergency on the agenda. Scheeser worried if council had “taken away people’s right” to comment because of the emergency clause. Village Solicitor Ed McTigue acknowledged Mariemont residents have previously given village officials flak for using the emergency clause, but council was not doing anything illegal by

not listing the emergency clause on the agenda. “The possibility always exists that it could be an emergency,” he said. By using the emergency

clause it means Mariemont’s legislation will go into effect sooner than if council had followed the typical three reading schedule for passage. Councilman Dennis Wolter

said he was more comfortable using the emergency clause with this because the South 80 has a lot of public support and is not a controversial issue. In the past two years, volunteers have cleaned up the area, established more than two miles of natural trails throughout the farmland and woods near the Little Miami River, and turned an under-used land into a popular, passive park for residents. In addition to the trails, woods and farmland, a handful of residents also have community gardens in that area, which is below the pool on Mariemont Avenue.

Hyde Park council remains opposed to a zone change By Forrest Sellers

HYDE PARK — The Hyde Park Neighborhood Council has once again voiced its objections to a potential zone change. Cincinnati is considering a zone change at 3542 Edwards Road. If approved the property, which is currently zoned “single family,” would be changed to “office limited.” This designation would permit a mix of residential and office use at the site. The applicant, Cooney,

Faulkner and Stevens, had initiated discussions on the zone change to allow for an extension of its current office which is located next to Faulkner the building. The Hyde Park Neighborhood Council fears a zone change would set a precedent and also conflict with a Hyde Park Conservation Plan drafted more than 30 years ago. The Hyde Park Neighborhood Council recommended a

Notwithstanding Ordinance use variance for the site. This variance would allow for office use of the building, but not require a Pasquinucci zone change. “If it is rezoned a business can sell at commercial prices,” said board member Carl Uebelacker during council’s November meeting. “(This) opens the door to other changes.” Uebelacker also questioned

the impact a zone change would have on off street parking and exterior changes at the site. Crystal Faulkner, with Cooney, Faulkner and Stevens, said it is simply extending an office limited zone an additional 40 feet. Faulkner said the zone change is necessary for continued operation of her business. “We want to stay in Hyde Park and grow,” she said, adding that she did not understand council’s opposition to a zone change. It makes economic

sense, she said. Board President Rob Pasquinucci said the broader issue is “what happens to residential properties on this route” with a zone change. Regardless of the outcome, Pasquinucci said it could be beneficial to revisit the Hyde Park Conservation Plan. He said further discussions of the plan and possibly updating it could be viable. Cincinnati City Council unanimously approved the zone change during its Nov. 14 meeting. Vol. 33 No. 43 © 2013 The Community Press ALL RIGHTS RESERVED

New pizza place in Oakley By Forrest Sellers

OAKLEY — A new pizza restaurant wants to bring families together. Mama Mimi’s recently opened in Oakley. “Our company motto is bringing families back

to the table,” said Brett DeCurtins, a managing partner for the company. Mama Mimi’s is a “take and bake” type of restaurant in which the customer places an order, the pizza is prepared at the restaurant and then the pizza is cooked



at home. The concept is relatively new in this area, said Jim Jagers, a chief executive officer for Mama Mimi’s. The first Mama Mimi’s chain opened in Columbus in 2000. Since being bought by Jagers, stores have been opened in Anderson Township and Kenwood. “It’s more than just getting a pepperoni piz-

planned before the concert. The concert is geared toward more than just music. “The food drive is what has made this an event,” said Brian Giebel, who is a co-promoter of the event with Mark Santangelo. People attending the concert are encouraged to bring non-perishable food items which will be donated to the Oakley Community Food Pantry. Cash donations and grocery store gift cards will also be accepted. The concert will feature Josh Eagle, Heavy Hinges and the headline band The Cliftones. Tickets are $14. Giebel said he wanted to incorporate a food drive into the event after learning about the Oakley Community Food Pantry. For a number of years, the 20th Century, where Giebel works, has donated food to the pantry. However, Giebel said he had always thought the food was sent downtown. “I didn’t know (the pantry) was two blocks away,” he said. The Oakley Community Food Pantry is located at the United Church of Christ in Oakley, 4100 Taylor Ave. The pantry, which is run by volunteers, has provided assistance to 227 households during the past year. “For the 20th Century staff to step up to this degree is overwhelming,” said the Rev. Judy Jackson, pastor of United Church of Christ. “We have done food drives before, but nothing (of) this magnitude.” Stan Messerly, who assists with the pantry, is excited by the potential of the event. “We are always in need of food products and financial donations,” he said. Tickets for the concert can be obtained by calling 731-8000.

Mama Mimi’s also offers salad and lasagna. Prices range from $5 for a children’s pizza to $15.99 for a large gourmet pizza. Jagers said additional Tristate and national locations are being consid-

Tips to curtail thefts during the holidays By Forrest Sellers

OAKLEY — Cincinnati police officer Dwayne Dawson offered up some holiday advice. Lock up, said Dawson. Although for many the holiday season is a time of giving, for criminals it’s a time of opportunity, especially when it comes to unlocked vehicles. “I don’t know what motivates people not to lock up,” said Dawson during Oakley Community Council’s November meeting. In lieu of simply detailing the usual crime statistics, Dawson said he wanted to provide some crime prevention tips. From Oct. 5 to Nov. 3, Dawson said seven breaking and entering incidents and five burglaries were reported. The days when doors can be left unlocked are over, said Dawson. Dawson recommended investing in an extra lock, deadbolt or other precaution that makes it harder for someone to break in. It’s a matter of risk vs. reward, said Dawson. If it’s harder to break in a criminal may be less likely to try and steal an item, he said. Dawson said sliding glass doors are particularly vulnerable, adding that using a bar to obstruct the door is a good precaution. He said of the 22 thefts that were reported four were thefts from auto. He said this number was lower than usual, but that thefts from auto would escalate during the holidays. “Put stuff in the trunk

out of sight,” he said. Additionally, Dawson said people should be alert if Dawson they are having packages delivered at their homes. A thief may follow a delivery truck waiting for an item to be dropped off, he cautioned. Also, Dawson said once or twice a month a theft will be reported at a grocery store in which a purse is taken from a cart. “Keep an eye on purses,” said Dawson. The holiday season also brings candidate elections for council. Elections for the Oakley Community Council are typically during the December meeting. The December meeting will be 7 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 3, at the Oakley Community Center, 3882 Paxton Ave. To qualify as a candidate, applicants must meet the residency criterion as well as attend a minimum of three Oakley Community Council meetings during a given year and have their membership dues paid in full. Candidates also have to be at least 18 years old and not have any felony convictions. Four positions on the board will be open. These positions include those of outgoing members Peter Draugelis, Gina Brenner and Lindsay Hooks, all of whom recently moved, and Mike Bonomo, whose term is expiring. The deadline for candidate submissions is Friday, Nov. 22. meetings would be open to the public and minutes would be kept. MembersincludeChairman Mark Erhardt, Jason Brownknight, Tim Duever, Mark Glassmeyer, Debbie Henderson, Andrew Seeger, Joe Stelzer, Karen Sullivan, Doug Welsh, Chris White and Rob Winget.

Terrace Park seeing rash of car break-ins in parking lots By Lisa Wakeland

They were expecting a simple Sunday morning watching youth soccer. But four women got a big surprise when they returned to their cars at Terrace Park’s Drackett fields to find broken windows and missing purses. Though the thefts, according to police reports, happened between 10 a.m. and 10:50 a.m., Terrace Park Police Chief Gerald Hayhow said the entire rash of smash-and-grabs was likely over in a few minutes. Hayhow also said it’s not unusual that no one noticed or heard the glass breaking. “It happens all the time,” he said. “It’s a quick crime and by the time someone realizes what’s going on they’re in and out.” None of the victims was from Terrace Park, and, in

addition to the purses, the women reported an iPhone, credit and debit cards, and a T-shirt taken from their cars. The iPhone was later located near Ridge and Highland avenues in Columbia Township, police reports show. Hayhow said they have suspects who were not involved in the actual thefts, but are suspected of receiving stolen property. He said they’re still waiting for evidence and declined to say more because it’s still under investigation. Many of these quick crimes are tied to drugs or money, Hayhow said, and it’s getting more common. Earlier this summer there were a rash of vehicle break-ins along the Little Miami Bike Trail, and there have been recent reports of break-ins at the Kroger on Wooster Pike. “The parks are getting hit, and so are parking lots

in hospitals and schools,” he said. “Make sure that if you have anything of value it’s out of sight. Even if it’s a purse with nothing in it you just bought a window. Why give anyone the opportunity to do it?” Mariemont resident Michelle Deemer had her laptop stolen, which was in the trunk while they ran into the store for bread. “Our doors were locked, we were in (and) out within 20 minutes, and the only reason we were even that long was because we were talking and joking around with some of the store employees,” she shared on the neighborhood social media site Nextdoor. “It wasn’t feasible to run home (and) unload a ton of stuff that was also in my trunk, including a purse with credit cards, just for a loaf of bread.”

Terrace Park adopts zoning changes By Lisa Wakeland

Terrace Park residents will have to comply with a few new zoning changes, particularly garages, sheds and the storage of inoperable vehicles. Council on Nov. 12 unanimously approved amendments to the village’s zoning code. Officials have been working on the update since July 2012, and the changes will take effect before the end

of the year. Councilman Tom Tepe Jr., who heads the Planning & Zoning Committee, said he’s had few questions from residents, and the updates have been available for several months. Resident David Moyer, who is chairman of the Zoning Board of Appeals and member of the Planning Commission, explained some of the code amendments at a recent meeting.

“The big ones are accessory buildings and … we make it much clearer what’s permitted in accessory structures,” he said. These changes, Moyer said, were driven by things building official John Hester saw during inspections. They also reinstituted the height limit to 18 feet for accessory buildings, which are any structures outside the main building on the lot, such as garages or sheds.

Turkeys’ lives are good - until they’re not There are about 270 turkeys at Greenacres Farm in Indian Hill that hope you don’t read this story. That’s because they are candidates for as many Thanksgiving tables. Once again, the Greenacres Farm Store is offering turkeys for sale – male or female, black or white, 16 to 30 pounds. You can call 891-4227 to place an order for the large birds, which will be sold for $4 a pound. All the turkeys will be available for pickup Wednesday, Nov. 27, the day before Thanksgiving, at the farm store at 8255 Spooky Hollow Road. Carter Randolph of Blue Ash, president of Greenacres, said the farm’s turkeys are extra

tasty because they are moved around every couple of days to dine on fresh grass, bugs and worms. Banks Baker of Indian Hill, director of agriculture at Greenacres, helps take care of the turkeys. Baker said he used to raise pigs and sometimes was a little sad to send them to slaughter – especially the ones that responded to their names and nuzzled his knees. With the turkeys at Greenacres, Baker said, “We give them the best life we can, until they give us their life.” Greenacres’ farm store is open year-round

‘Out-of-the-Box-Day’ for fifth-graders


t’s a big rite-of-passage when fifthgraders join Cincinnati Country Day’s 1:1 technology crowd. The 57 students recently received their new computers and lessons on how to use them during Out-of-theBox Day. They also demonstrated their laptops’ capabilities to their parents. “The fifth-graders view the day as a combination of birthday and holiday all wrapped into one,” said Theresa Hirschauer, head of the Middle School. “I think many of them believe that getting their tablet is the final step to joining the Middle School. It is so exciting to see the parents and students working together with the new machine.” Cincinnati Country Day has a 1:1 technology program for students in grades 5-12. Each student has a Fujitsu Stylistic Q702 hybrid tablet PC. “What makes the Q702 a ‘hybrid’ is the fact that the screen unit can be fully detached from the keyboard base unit and used independently without any loss of functionality,” said Rob Baker, director of technology. “The screen unit makes for a lightweight e-reader, while retaining full digital inking capabilities - the writing, annotating, sketching and highlighting functions on which our teaching and learning have come to depend.” Country Day is known worldwide for its integration of technology in the classroom. Last year, Microsoft selected Country Day as a world tour school. As a result, Baker was invited to speak at Microsoft’s Partners in Learning Global Forum at Prague in March. He met with educators from 80 countries to help mold the role technology will continue to play in schools in the 21st century. Baker will travel to Barcelona next March.

lection and also made All-City and honorable mention AllState. “She plays hard every day,” Coach Johnny Taylor said of his point guard. Shooting guard Tobin was a third-team selection in the league. Englert and Tobin will be complemented by junior center Annika Davis, and freshman guards Stormi Terrell and Michelle Cater. “She’s a good team leader and a great defensive player,” Taylor said of Cater. “(I’m) looking for good things from her.” Game one for the Lady Cavaliers is Nov. 22 at Seven Hills in the Seven Hills tournament. “The hard work will pay off for us,” Taylor said. “These young ladies are ready.”

By Scott Springer and Mark Motz

Practice opened in late October for girls basketball teams in the Eastern Hills Journal coverage area. The following is a rundown of the high school squads waiting to open their season.

Clark Montessori

» In her first year at Clark, coach Angel Morgan inherits a daunting task by taking over a team that was 0-21 last season. The Lady Cougars have had four losing seasons in a row. On the upside, they do return all five starters in juniors Sam Branch and Janszen Lewis and sophomores Kayla Fisher, Zion Bosley and Sydney Nelson. “We lost no seniors last year and we have no seniors this year,” Morgan said. “We are very young but have some valuable experience (from) playing all freshmen and sophomores last year. We are very athletic and have a nice combination of speed and size. The team will play really good defense and hustle.” Dating back to 2012, the Lady Cougars have lost 25 straight games. Clark opens the season at Roger Bacon on Nov. 23. After a road game Nov. 25 at Deer Park, the Lady Cougars’ home opener is Nov. 26 with Lockland. “There are some nice ninthgraders coming up that can handle the ball,” Morgan said of her 2013 squad. “We have four girls 5-foot-10 or taller. The girls are hungry to turn the program around and get back to our winning tradition.”

Seven Hills


» The Warriors enter the new season intact after graduating nobody from a team that went 18-6 overall and earning a share of the Cincinnati Hills League title with Madeira at 12-2. Not only does everybody return, the Warriors add 6-foot-4 freshman Rebekah Justice, who is already garnering Division I college interest before ever setting foot on a high school court. Third-year head coach John Weilbacher said he’s not content to rest on past laurels. “The CHL is going to be competitive again, as always, but

we’ve definitely upgraded our non-league schedule,” he said. “We’re playing McNicholas, Badin, New Richmond and Amelia, a Division I school. We want to push ourselves.” He’ll rely on senior forward Meredith Garrison and sophomore two guard Hannah Krieger, who return from all-CHL first team selections last year. Sophomore point guard Olivia Griffith was a second team pick as a freshman. Her sister, senior Emma Griffith, is a four-

year starter at guard. Another senior guard in Ally Croll will miss the early part of the season with a knee injury, but should return to add depth and experience. “We’re really deep and there’s not a significant drop from our starters to our bench,” Weilbacher said. “We’ll play everybody. We’re sort of uptempo to take advantage of that, but with the addition of Rebekah, we can play the half-court game, too, and give her a chance

to get to the rim.” Mariemont opens the season Friday, Nov. 22, at the Seven Hills tournament against Miami Valley. The winner faces either the host Stingers or Purcell Marian on Nov. 23.

Purcell Marian

» The Lady Cavaliers return junior starters Maria Englert and Katie Tobin to a team that was 6-16 last season (2-10 GGCLGrey Central). Englert was a first-team se-

The Stingers were 7-15 last year, including a 5-8 record in the Miami Valley Conference that left them in the Scarlet Division cellar. “By the end of the year we were playing pretty well,” said head coach Tyler McIlwraith. “We had a big upset against Miami Valley in the tournament before we lost in the sectional finals. This year, every day, we have five seniors and they’re really working hard to leave their legacy as something positive.” Among the seniors is guard Lauren Weems, who is closing in on the school’s career scoring record of 1,574 points. It’s a mark owned by McIlwraith, a 2003 Seven Hills graduate. Also returning are seniors Alexis Lindsay and Kate Hickenlooper, as well as junior Maggie Gossiger. Watch for freshman point guard Kerrie Daniel to make an immediate impact. McIlwraith plans to play uptempo on both ends of the court, using a pressure defense to force turnovers and get easy shots in transition. That may be a challenge because “we still have low numbers,” McIlwraith said. “We’ve only got 13 players in the program. We’ll only have a limited JV team and schedule. We’re going to need everybody to chip in and do their part for us to be successful.” Seven Hills begins the seaSee HOOPS, Page A8

Silver Knight football seniors lay foundation for future By Mark D. Motz

KETTERING — Only so many

rabbits live in the magician’s hat. The Summit Country Day football team discovered this truth Nov. 15 when it got down 21-0 in the first half of the Division VI regional semifinals against West Liberty Salem. The Silver Knights scored twice in the second half and and had two chances to tie late in the game, but came up empty, falling 21-13 and ending the season at 9-3. The Tigers scored on their first two possessions on runs of nine and one yard and added a nine-yard touchdown pass from Brandon Upton to Landon Williams on the first play of the sec-

ond period to score all the points they needed. “They came out and took it to us early,” said Summit head coach Mike Brown. “You can’t take anything away from them. We left a lot of tackles out on the field in the first half.” In the second, Summit shored up its defense. “We just decided we were going to take away the run,” Brown said. “We wanted to make them throw. We figured any time we’re down three touchdowns or less, we can tie it up in five minutes with our offense. “We almost did.” Indeed. Senior receiver Daniel Bruns made a juggling catch off a twice-tipped 28-yard pass from

quarterback Antonio Woods for the first Summit score with 7:55 to play in the third period. “He’s a big-time receiver,” Brown said. “He’s had speed and he’s had hands and this year he really put them together. He worked on that all through the off season and all year, the concentration, to come up with a tipped ball like that.” Woods and Bruns hooked up for a 64-yard touchdown pass with 4:14 to play in the game.

ing threat for SUA – and sophomore guard Madeline Morrissey to make significant contributions. SUA faces the usual gauntlet of GGCL schools – Leon picked Mount Notre Dame as a the early league favorite – and also plays five Greater Miami Conference schools, as well as top teams in Northern Kentucky (Notre Dame Academy) and Louisville (Sacred Heart). The Bulldogs open the season Nov. 26 on the road at McNicholas and jump into GGCL play Dec. 5 at McAuley before the Dec. 7 home opener against Dayton Carroll.

son hosting its own tournament and playing Nov. 22 against Purcell Marian. The winner plays either Mariemont or Miami Valley Nov. 23.

St. Ursula Academy

» The Bulldogs battled injury and inexperience last season to finish with a 4-20 record, last in the Girls Greater Catholic League. Head coach Jim Leon sees improvement on the horizon. “I think we’re going to be OK,” he said. “We’re not as skilled as I’d like to be, so we’re really concentrating on fundamentals early. It might be January until we figure everything out, but we should be better.” A trio of seniors will provide experience and leadership. Among them are guards Lizzie Ayers and Katie Ellerhorst, as a well as 6-foot-1center Emma Noe. Junior point guard Karlee Proctor attracted some Division I college interest before missing last season with an ACL injury. Watch for freshman guard Riley Jerow - who should be a strong shoot-

Summit Country Day

» The Silver Knights went 21-4, won the Miami Valley Conference title and finished the season as district runner-up last year. Head coach Beth Simmons graduated three seniors from that club, including a pair of four-year starters, so it’s going to be a different Summit squad on the floor. “We are not the same team we were,” Simmons said. “We lost a lot of experience, a lot of leadership. I’ll be curious to see who steps up to fill those roles.” Sophomore forward



play with Anderson Dec. 4. “Our bond and work ethic will dictate the outcome of this year,” Gwynn said.


» The Lady Tigers are the defending Cincinnati Metro Athletic Conference champions as they were 12-0 in the league and 19-5 overall. Kim Corbitt returns for her second year as head coach after taking CMAC Coach of the Year honors in season one. She returns starting senior point guard Adriana Williams and senior center Montrail Roberts. Williams was secondteam all-league last season, with Roberts making honorable mention. Both are considered college prospects along with junior guard Jaliyah Moses. A pair of forward sisters are also expected to contribute to the Lady Tigers in Antonette and Aniya Pride. Withrow begins the season Nov. 24 in a tournament at Shaker Heights. Their first area game is at Woodward Nov. 26. The first home game will be against Aiken Dec. 12. “I like our athleticism and defensive intensity,” Corbitt said.

Walnut Hills 6-foot-3 center Amber Wilks handles the ball in the post in a game last season.SCOTT SPRINGER/THE COMMUNITY PRESS

Gabbi Gehner should be one of them. She led the team in scoring and rebounding as a freshman. Another ought to be senior guard Addie Englehart, who brings the most experience. Also back are junior guards Kiley Barnard and Malvana Campbell. Keep an eye on six-foot freshman Meghan O’Brien in the post as a probable starter. “We’re an up-anddown-the-floor team,” Simmons said. “We like to push the ball and get a quick score.” Simmons said the MVC will be solid again this season. “It’s consistent,” she said. “CCD, CHCA, Seven

Hills, they all have some good returning players. It’s going to be good competition for the league.” Summit opens the season Nov. 23 at home against Waynesville.

Walnut Hills

» Keith Gwynn comes from taking Norwood to the tournament to leading the Lady Eagles who were 10-13 (6-6 Eastern Cincinnati Conference) last season. Three starters return in juniors Taylor Darks and Amber Wilks, plus sophomore Arielle Varner. Darks was first team ECC in 2013, with Wilks and Varner making second team. Darks was sec-

ond in the league in scoring (11.7) and steals (3.0). Wilks was third in rebounding (7.5) and blocks (2.0), while Varner was second in rebounding (8.7). Complementing the taller Lady Eagles will be sophomore guard Khira Burton. “This is a very talented group with tons of potential,” Gwynn said. “If we can learn how to play, not only with each other but for each other, we will be one of the best teams in Cincinnati.” Walnut Hills starts by hosting a tournament Nov. 22-23 before going on the road to play Gahanna Lincoln at Reynoldsburg Nov. 24. They start ECC

Moeller moves past Elder to face Colerain By Scott Springer


they did in their run to the state title last year, Moeller will have to get by Colerain to continue north. The Crusaders handed Elder their first shutout of the year with a 24-0 victory Nov. 16 at Nippert Stadium. The win put them against Colerain for the second-straight year as the Cardinals defeated Pickerington Central 3820 to earn another shot at Moeller. Moeller/Elder Part II was scoreless for the first 12 minutes. Then, the second quarter belonged to Moeller with two scores coming within two minutes of each other. At the start of the stanza, Gus Ragland made a nice ball fake and kept the pumpkin to score from eight yards out just 27 seconds into the frame. A couple of minutes later, the Crusaders were in scoring position again thanks to a pick by Ohio State-bound Sam Hub-

bard. The drive stalled, but sophomore kicker Matthew Coghlin drilled a 37yarder to put Moeller up 10-0 with 9:33 left in the half. For Elder, the first half was uneventful with top running threat Chris Schroer being held to seven yards on three lugs. Sophomore quarterback Peyton Ramsey was forced to throw 23 times, completing 13, but with interceptions by Hubbard and senior Will Mercurio. “Our defense played really well,” Moeller Coach John Rodenberg said. “I think they were forced to throw the ball a little bit more than they wanted to. That’s a great football team and we came up with a great shutout. That’s tough to do.” After a scoreless third quarter, Moeller senior quarterback Gus Ragland found the endzone again. This time, it was by breaking several tackles and diving in after a 69-

For video of Moeller’s 24-0 win over Elder, go to

yard gallop. Ragland finished as the game’s top rusher with 126 yards on 21 totes. “Gus is the heart and soul of the offense,” Rodenberg said. “We depend on him to make good decisions.” The icing on this GCLSouth cake came when Will Mercurio picked off his second pass of the game and rolled for a 58-

yard touchdown in front of the Moeller student section. “We’ve been playing pass coverage a lot better lately and I thought the kids did a nice job,” Rodenberg said. In all, the Crusaders intercepted Elder quarterback Ramsey five times. By default, he was also Elder’s top rusher with 43 yards as senior

Chris Schroer was held to 20. “Chris Schroer got hurt last week and had a bad ankle and a bad knee,” Elder Coach Doug Ramsey said. “We knew we were limited. We had to put a whole lot of the game on Peyton.” For Moeller, Ragland threw just 15 times, completing seven. Moeller outrushed Elder 243-63. Doing that against Colerain won’t be as easy. The Cardinals’ bread and butter is running the football. Last year’s contest was a 24-21 Moeller victory. “It’s going to be a challenge,” Rodenberg said. “We’ll see what happens next week. It’ll be fun.” Moeller and Colerain face off Nov. 23 at Mason Dwire Field at Atrium Stadium at Mason High School.

Woods booted a textbook onside kick recovered by Alex Vance to give Summit a chance at the tying drive. The Tigers came up with an interception but Summit forced a threeand-out series to get the ball back with 1:42 on the clock. The Silver Knights attempted a trick play after taking possession - Woods with a backward pass to the flat to set up a halfback bomb - but got intercepted again to let West Liberty run out the clock. “This hurts,” Brown said. “But I’m so proud of them. To drop two games in the middle of the season, come back and make the playoffs, beat CCD and get to this game and get so close is pretty amazing. “Our seniors did a great job and laid a great foundation. The season before they got here, Summit won five games. They’ve won seven, seven, 11 and now nine.”

Author’s comments were bizarre I read with interest James Baker’s OP-ED piece in the Nov. 7 Community Press calling for all “Real Republicans” to rise up and throw tea party enthusiasts into the nearest ditch. Given that Mr. Baker believes that the tea party is the U.S. equivalent of an international terrorist organization it is not surprising that he would call for their ex-communication from his beloved Republican party. After all, what decent person would want to associate with such a bunch of woman-hating, environment-spoiling, government-despising, Obamacare-ruining theocrats and fascists? Mr. Baker asks, “Is there a difference between tea party candidates and the

Taliban? The level of violence is the only difference I can see.” Mr. Baker should look harder. Gil Spencer I am new to COMMUNITY PRESS Cincinnati GUEST COLUMNIST and the tagline on Mr. Baker’s OP-ED states that he is a 36-year resident of Indian Hill, so maybe he knows something about the local tea party that I don’t. But in my former life, I was a newspaper columnist and I met a number of tea party types – from doctors and lawyers to insurance salesmen – and not all of them were men. The tea party activists

I’ve met are interested in reminding their fellow citizens of the importance of limited government and the dangers of more and more power flowing to an unaccountable federal bureaucracy. I am not a tea party member, nor am I a member of the Republican Party. But it seems to me Mr. Baker has a pretty strange idea of what a “real” Republican should think and do. In one of the more astonishing passages of his piece he criticizes “far right” tea partiers for refusing to help “fix” Obamacare. But why should Republicans – many of whom were sent to Washington in 2010 to stop Obamacare in its tracks – “fix” something that they

CH@TROOM Last week’s 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?

“Enough is enough. Give it a break. Not only for would-be shoppers but the retailers’s employees. They deserve a life as well. All stay home, watch football. Eat turkey. Relax for one day.” T.B.

“I think the extended hours are horrible - so unfair to the store employees who will have no time at all with their families, and so wrong to commercialize a holiday to the point that it disappears altogether. “But we the consumers have brought this upon ourselves, with our willingness first to get up at dawn on Friday and then go out at midnight on Thanksgiving. Next year I am sure stores will be open all day. “The only way to end this is to simply not go. I have never shopped on this weekend, at all. I wish others would also spend this time with family. The retailers will offer the deals later if we just don’t respond to the Thanksgiving sales.” J.R.B.

“This is a very stupid idea and no I will not play into the greed of corporations. What is Thanksgiving but a day of thanks when families can get together. Now I hear that Krogers is going to be open ’til 5 p.m. to accommodate late shopping needs. “Corporations are becoming less and less family oriented and the stupid people that keep playing into their hands and shopping are just as much to fault. Why do we keep pushing society to the needs of greed? What is the old saying: put off today what you can do tomorrow. “Wake up people, if no one shows up on holidays to shop, I’m sure the stores will extend the sales to the following day to entice all your shopping needs. Don’t be stupid, play it smart - all your going to do is complain about the crowds, salespeople, and that you could not find what you wanted anyway.” D.J.

“No, I and the rest of the extended family (friends) will be dozing, shooting pool, and gener-

ally grousing about too much turkey. This is what Thanksgiving is all about. “If any of my guests were to leave early to shop they would not be invited next year. This is the one holiday that no matter what your beliefs, politics, or any other hang-ups they do not matter. It is an occasion for those of us fortunate enough to have the means to put together this repast to be thankful. “My sincere hope is that no one shows up at those stores. If dinner and discussions with loved ones mean so little to you think about giving that time away from the table to help serve the many less fortunate.” J.Z.

“Retailers are opening their doors Thanksgiving evening to accommodate shoppers who want to begin their holiday shopping. If this offends you, don’t go to the stores, stay home - eat leftovers, shop online in the comfort of your home, or wait until Black Friday morning to begin your shopping in the stores.” E.E.C.

“Seriously, can’t stores wait a few more hours, until Friday, to start their sales? If the retailers feel they need extra selling time why don’t they just forget about Black Friday and start their big sales the Saturday before Thanksgiving? “I once had to work on Thanksgiving and had leftovers for my dinner. It was a sad day. “I definitely won’t shop on Thanksgiving and I’m very disappointed that a couple of my favorite stores will force their employees to work that day. I hope all of the stores who are open on Thanksgiving suffer big loses. “How long before they start their after-Christmas sales on Christmas Day?”


that turns off too many Independents and moderates. Mr. Baker makes the same mistake when he demands that principled conservatives need to be run out of “his” party because they haven’t been sufficiently helpful to a Democratic president and his progressive agenda. Worse though, is Mr. Baker’s crude caricature of tea partiers as intolerant fascists and terrorists. While this would sound about right coming from the likes of Rachel Maddow or Al Sharpton, it sounds bizarre coming from anyone who calls themselves a “real Republican.” Gil Spencer is a resident of Hyde Park.




think is unworkable, hurtful and damaging to the country? Now that we have learned that the Affordable Care Act was sold to the public on a passel of distortions, if not outright lies, it seems downright strange for any Republican (real or imagined) to demand obeisance to its survival. “Repeal and replace” has been the Republican Party’s official position on Obamacare for the last three years, but when you only control one half of one branch of government that’s hard to do. Tea partiers make a mistake when they seek to defeat Republican office holders who fail to meet a standard of ideological purity

Can a fish climb a tree? Albert Einstein once said, “Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.” We talk a lot about the five senses: sight, hearing, smell, taste and touch. I would simply like to add one more …“imagination.” Einstein’s quote, “Imagination is more important than knowledge.” is true, but I would go one step further and say: that to advance beyond basic text knowledge, one must first have imagination. Intelligence is the ability to take imagination and knowledge, and mold them into what I call “Creative Intellectual Thinking"or CIT. To put it in an Einstein type formula or a simple equation: (“CIT = Imagination + Intelligence”). The CIT score is the ability to solve life’s problems using previous text knowledge experience and imaginative thought. This CIT comprehension of a new image conception evolves eventually into a clear idea. The IQ score shouldn’t be the true gauge for a person’s intelligence. Einstein, in his understanding of intelligence writes, “Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish

by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it’s stupid.” Many students toWas Adamson day carry the COMMUNITY PRESS same burden GUEST COLUMNIST of stress as Einstein’s “climbing fish.” Imagination needs to have a place on the standardized testing charts. A story of two different students stopping to aid an elderly woman with a flat tire, speaks to my point. The older woman, who did not have a cell phone, was stranded with a blowout tire on a back road. A college student heading back to school after a weekend break spotted her in distress and pulled his car to the side. After observing the situation and studying the flat tire, he told her, “According to my calculations, the tire in question has a calculus rate of change of minus 35.3 pounds of air pressure. This is based upon my understanding of relationship between the radius diameter and circumference of your tire.” He then told her, this was the best he could do, as he

wanted to get back to his classroom studies. Another student returning to school also stopped to help her. Taking one look at the situation, and checking the trunk to discover that the elderly woman’s spare tire was flat as well, he offered to put his car’s spare “donut tire” on her car. After quickly changing the tire, he followed her to ensure she made it to the next auto service station. Which student has a higher IQ? Most people would say, student No. 1; because of the student’s mathematically cognitive reasoning. Which student has a higher CIT or creative intellectual thinking? Definitely…student No. 2. Thus, the important question becomes: What educational outcomes are we teaching for in our classrooms today? My hope is that, amidst our focus on text knowledge testing, we find the time to encourage students to develop their imaginative “fish swimming” CIT skills and leave the comparing of tree climbing abilities…strictly to the monkeys!

Thanksgiving recipes feature cranberries, pumpkin

Next week, our Community Press kitchens will be buzzing with activity, from drying the bread for the stuffing to making “must have” traditional pumpkin desserts. A reminder: Give your frozen turkey enough time to thaw. My experience is that it Rita takes a lot Heikenfeld longer to RITA’S KITCHEN thaw than the package states. If it’s not thawed in time, put the whole thing, wrapped, in cool water and change the water about every half hour until thawed. Also remember those who are alone, or can’t get out. Send a card, give them a call or, best idea, invite them to your table. And no matter how you spend this holiday, remember also that having some place to go is home, having someone to love is family and having both is a blessing.

Rita’s do-ahead, baked candied cranberries Another recipe that changes each time I make it. I really like this version. If you substitute Splenda, use the kind that measures out just like sugar. Now if you don’t want to use the liqueur, though it’s in the oven long enough for at least some of the alcohol, and probably most, to bake out,

substitute 1⁄4 cup water or cranberry juice. When we were kids, mom had us kids pick through the berries and remove “tails” and foreign bits of whatever that might be in the bag. That was in the dark ages! Now cranberries are so well processed that all you have to do is wash them.

1 bag fresh cranberries, washed and picked over 11⁄2 cups sugar or to taste 1 ⁄4 cup brandy or cognac 1 ⁄4 cup frozen orange concentrate, thawed but not diluted 1 cup chopped walnuts

Mix together everything but nuts. Sprinkle nuts on top and push them in a bit. Bake uncovered until berries have absorbed most of the liquid and most have popped, about 45 minutes. Can be done ahead. Great served warm, room temperature or chilled.

Marilyn Hoskin’s cranberry celebration salad Here’s the salad so many of you requested. Marilyn, a Milford reader, developed this from an Ocean Spray recipe and by reading the ingredients on the Kroger salad. Try substituting cherry gelatin if you like. Ginny Moorehouse’s recipe, equally delicious, is on my blog. She’s been making her version for years. 15 oz. crushed pineapple, drained, juice reserved 1 ⁄2 cup cranberry juice 2 tablespoons lemon juice

Rita’s baked cranberries can be made ahead to help with Thanksgiving planning.THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD 3 oz. raspberry gelatin 15 oz. can whole cranberry sauce 1 ⁄2 cup chopped walnuts 1 ⁄2 cup celery, chopped (optional, but good)

Boil pineapple juice, cranberry juice and lemon juice together. Add gelatin. Remove from heat and stir in cranberries. Put in fridge till almost set. Stir in nuts, celery and pineapple.

Roasted sweet potatoes with garlic and thyme 4 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 11⁄2-inch rounds 3 tablespoons extra virgin

olive oil 1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves or 1 teaspoon dry 2 garlic cloves, minced 1 ⁄4 to 1⁄2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (optional) 1 teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 375400 degrees. Toss potatoes with oil, thyme, garlic, red pepper and salt. Make a single layer on baking sheet. Roast until tender and starting to brown 40-45 minutes uncovered. Garnish and serve.

Pumpkin pie cake/cobbler

A cross between a pumpkin pie, cake and cobbler. Make this a day

ahead of time and refrigerate. Filling: 1 29 oz. can pumpkin puree 4 large eggs, room temperature, beaten 1 cup sugar1⁄4 teaspoon salt 1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice 1 ⁄2 teaspoon cinnamon (optional) 1 12 oz. can evaporated milk

Blend everything for filling together until well mixed. Pour into sprayed 13-inch by 9-inch pan. Cobbler topping: 1 18.25 oz. box yellow cake mix 11⁄2 sticks butter, melted 3 tablespoons brown sugar 1 cup chopped nuts

(optional) Whipped cream

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Sprinkle dry cake mix over batter. Drizzle butter over evenly. Sprinkle brown sugar over and then sprinkle nuts over that. Bake for 1 hour. Serve hot, room temperature or chilled, garnished with whipped cream. Serves 12. Rita Nader Heikenfeld is an herbalist, educator and author. Find her blog online at Cincinnati.Com/blogs.

Deregulation confusing, aggravating to homeowners Deregulation has led to lower utility rates for Ohio customers, but its also led to a lot of confusion and aggravation among some homeowners. Some are confused by the variety of different rates offered, while others are aggravated at the house calls and phone calls they are receiving. Dozens of utility companies have entered Ohio looking for business. The sales tactics of some have led people to believe they were getting called upon by Duke Energy itself. Consumers tell me when they questioned why the salesman wanted to see their utility bill they were told, “Oh,

it’s all right, I work with Duke Energy.” In fact, while Duke does bill on behalf of Howard these utilAin ity compaHEY HOWARD! nies, the companies are actually in competition with Duke. Duke Energy’s Sally Thelen said Duke is aware of this and consumers should not be pressured. “Some of the concerns have been the aggressive tactics. Some folks have told us they’re feeling bullied. I would advise customers to read the contract,” Thelen

said. Some of the contracts have grace periods allowing you to switch once you sign up, while other contracts have a cancellation fee if you choose to switch. In addition to making house calls, some utility companies are sending out letters offering incentives to get you to sign up. Incentives include such things as frequent flier miles and a $50 debit card. But, perhaps most annoying for some homeowners are the phone calls which can be incessant. “It got to where every time we’d sit down to eat it seemed like they had a camera in the

house because that’s when the phone would ring,” said Joe Ann Kern. “I’ve just had them show up at my door several times over the summer always wanting me to switch, but I always turned them down. I don’t really understand it,” Robert Gillum said. Well, in order to understand it you have to check page two of your Duke Energy bill. There, you’ll find Duke’s Price To Compare section, which tells you the rate Duke is charging for electricity. Currently, it’s 6.13 cents per kilowatt hour. Dozens of companies offer competing electric rates and the best way to

find them is to check the Ohio Public Utilities Commission website for its Apples to Apples Price Comparison chart. I found comparable rates for as low as 4.95 cents per kilowatt hour. But, you need to check the terms of the offer to see how long the contract will last and whether there are any cancellation charges. Next, you can check Duke’s price for natural gas, which is found at the top of page two of your Duke bill. It says Duke’s price is .5596 cents. Compare that to the PUCO Comparison Chart for natural gas prices and you’ll find rates as low as .495 cents. But, once

again, you need to carefully check the terms of the contract including the contractual period and cancellation charges. If you switch your electric or gas from Duke Energy nothing will change with your bill – or the connections to your home. Duke will still deliver the electricity and the gas through the same lines and the “Transportation Charges” will continue to show up on your bill.

Dance-a-thon benefits Cancer Community

For the second year in a row, Jeremy and Desireé Mainous, franchise owners of the Arthur Murray Dance Studio in Blue Ash, have leveraged their dance talents and organizational skills to help beat cancer by choosing Cancer Support Community to receive the proceeds of their annual Swinging for Charity Gala and Dance-athon. They presented a check to CSC for $2,162 that will be used to help fund the professionally led programs of support,

education, and hope that are offered completely free of charge for people with cancer, their families and friends, and cancer survivors. The event once again included live dance music by Leroy Ellington and his E-funk Band as well as recorded favorites provided by a DJ. Attendees enjoyed dancing, of course, as well as the opportunity to take group dance classes and enjoy performances by professional and pro-am dancers throughout the evening. The Arthur

Murray owners added something special this year to support those fighting cancer – four free dance lessons prior to the event for Cancer Support Community participants affected by cancer. “It’s important to keep moving through cancer with activities you enjoy that also provide some gentle exercise,” CSC program director Kelly Schoen said. “The opportunity to learn some dance moves through free lessons was a wonderful opportunity for

Bakeries’ gingerbread sales help kids

Members of the Greater Cincinnati Retail Bakers Association make gingerbread men cookies and donate a portion of the sales from these seasonal specialties to help children who have physical problems or emotional concerns due to the loss of someone in their family Buy a Kid, Help a Kid, No Kidding is the slogan chosen by Tom Davis, of Regina Bakery in North Bend, chairman of this event in its 22nd year. The size and price of these cookies vary from bakery to bakery, but the spirit prevails in all as no one

wants to see a child hurting. Bakers in the Cincinnati area divide the proceeds from their cookie sale between Kindervelt, which provides state-ofthe-art equipment for Children’s Hospital, and Fernside, which has groups all over the city and is an affiliate of Hospice of Cincinnati. You can go into any of the participating stores and purchase the decorated gingerbread kids, or you can order them specially decorated with your child’s or grandchild’s name written on

them. “I believe it is important that we donate some of our resources to charity, and there is not better way than to help hurting children,” said Gary Gotttenbusch from Servatii Pastry Shop, and spokesman for the Greater Cincinnati Retail Bakers Association. The following bakeries will have the gingerbread kids on sale from Dec. 5Dec. 31: » Harrison Home Bakery – Harrison » Graeter’s Bakeries – all locations » Bonomini Bakery –

Northside » Little Dutch Bakery – Mt. Healthy » Wyoming Pastry Shop –Wyoming » Regina Bakery – North Bend and Cheviot » Patricia’s Wedding Cakes – Reading » Servatii Pastry Shop – all locations » Fantasy In Frosting – Newport, Ky. » Schmidt’s Bakery – Batesville » Bonnie Lynn Bakery – Blue Ash For more information contact or call 859-727-4146
