Decision on mine plan nears

Closing arguments are Jan. 25 for planned underground mine

By Lisa Wakeland

Park concerns

Anderson Township residents who live near Johnson Hills Park are concerned about a few of the development proposals. The Anderson Township Park District is working on a long-term plan for Johnson Hills Park, off Little Dry Run and Bridle roads, that includes disc golf, a fishing lake, trails, a tent camping area and other amenities. Park commissioners have also discussed transforming the Moorman House into a historic homestead or minifarm with vegetable gardens and livestock. So far, the majority of resident feedback has been positive – except on potential plans for the Moorman House, an 18th-century home on the northern end of the park. FULL STORY, A5

Township does not have sufficient staff to enforce the zoning code, which would allow Martin Mariet-

ta’s operation to run rampant with violations. “Martin Marietta is now in an

almost impossible situation of its own making,” Scott Phillips, attorney for Indian Hill, wrote in an executive summary of the case, on behalf of all the opposing attorneys. “It is evident from the record that Martin Marietta has not met and cannot meet its burden of proof.” Martin Marietta’s attorney, Dick Brahm, stated in his executive summary that the mine would not have a negative impact on the surrounding areas. Brahm wrote that though there was large community opposition, Martin Marietta has met all conditions for a permit. “Martin Marietta urges the Board to look behind the rhetoric to the actual facts that were produced at the hearings,” he wrote. “The Board should not allow speculation and unsupported concerns to determine the outcome of the property.”

Want to help?

Ryan Doan has been a member of a number of service groups. He said many of them, however, tend to lean toward socializing instead of the actual service project. “I want the service work to be a priority,” he said. Doan, a resident of Mount Washington, has formed the Mount Washington Service League. The group meets 7 p.m. the second Thursday of the month at the Mount Washington Recreation Center, 1715 Beacon St. Doan, 30, said his goal is to work closely with other organizations such as the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, Cincinnati Youth Collaborative, Crossroads and Little Brothers Friends of the Elderly. Additionally, Doan said special events will be planned throughout the year.

Newtown fire deemed arson, arrest made By Rob Dowdy

Newtown police arrested and charged Jill Hamilton, 36, with three counts of aggravated arson and one count of arson after evidence discovered at the Jan. 1 fire at a condominium complex at

3638 Church St. led investigators to determine the fire was intentionally set. Police Chief Tom Synan said the three counts of aggravated arson are because of the risk firefighters and neighbors were placed in because of the fire. “Her actions created a substantial

risk of serious physical harm to the citizens and firefighters,” he said. Hamilton, who lived at the residence with her husband and children, was taken to University Hospital after the fire. Two families, or six people, were displaced in the fire at the Whispering Winds condominium

complex. The American Red Cross was called to assist. When fire crews arrived, heavy fire filled the entire two-story unit. It took about 50 firefighters an hour to extinguish the blaze. Little Miami Joint Fire and Rescue District Chief Tom Driggers said the three-bedroom two-story

condo was “a total loss” on the interior, and he estimates damage to be between $75,000 and $100,000. Synan declined to release information about the evidence and circumstances surrounding the alleged arson because he said that would be used in court.

The Little Miami Joint Fire and Rescue District continues moving forward in its efforts to replace the firehouses located in Columbia Township and Newtown. Fire Chief Tom Driggers said the Columbia Township building, shown above, has structural issues that lead to flooding during heavy rains.

Little Miami fire district continues building plans By Rob Dowdy

The Little Miami Joint Fire and Rescue District is making progress in its plans to build two new fire stations in Newtown and either Fairfax or Madison Place. Voters in the Fire District approved a 2.3-mill continuous levy in November to pay for the projects, and district officials are now is working to make them a reality. The cost of the two buildings is estimated to cost about $8 million, and Fire Chief Tom Driggers said once the buildings are completed the district will

remove the levy. The district is expected to replace the Newtown fire station Driggers with another location in the village – most likely the E-Check building – and the Columbia Township fire station will either remain in the township or be moved to Fairfax. Driggers said 20 to 25 architecture firms are submitting designs for the two new buildings. He said he plans to review the submissions and recommend two or three for the Fire Board to

choose. “It might take a month or a month and a half to pick the architecture firm,” Driggers said. Once the firm is chosen, the Fire District will meet with lending institutions to prepare the financial aspects of the building projects. Newtown Village Councilman Brian Burns, a member of the Fire Board, declined to comment, noting that he expects to remove himself from the board in the coming weeks. He said a representative from the village council will likely be named at one of the council’s January meetings.

BRIEFLY CPR classes planned

Suit: Forest Hills school district violating law By Forrest Sellers

The Forest Hills Local School District is violating Ohio’s Sunshine Law by conducting meetings on facility needs behind closed doors, according to a lawsuit. The suit, filed on behalf of the Forest Hills Journal, seeks a court injunction to prevent the school district from conducting meetings of the Superintendent’s Committee on Facilities in

private. School Board President Julie Bissinger, who is a member of the Facilities Committee, declined to comment, referring questions to the school district’s attorney. William Deters, an attorney for the district, said Ohio case law and a 1994 Attorney General’s opinion support the school district’s position that meetings of the committee are not subject to the state’s Open Meetings Act.

“When a committee of private citizens and various public officers or employees is established solely by the executive authority of a governmental administrator for the purpose of providing advice to the administrator for the purpose of providing advice to the administrator ... then such committee is not a public body for the purposes of the Open Meetings Act,” said Deters, via a faxed response. The suit claims the com-

mittee is a public body and must comply with Ohio’s Sunshine Law. The Ohio Sunshine Law, like the sunshine laws of most states, requires public bodies to conduct their meetings in public. A “public body” is a committee, agency or other decision-making body of the state or local government. Jack Greiner, an attorney representing the Forest Hills Journal, said, “The important point is the nature of

the committee. “This committee is advising the (school) board which is a public body. In our view that makes the committee a public body as well.” The lawsuit cites a similar case – The Cincinnati Enquirer vs. city of Cincinnati – in which a state appeals court in 2001 ruled an advisory board responsible for making recommendations to the city of Cincinnati concerning urban development and renewal

plans must conduct its meetings in public. Patzwald The trial court and the Ohio Court of Appeals agreed with the newspaper. The 2001 court decision reinforced the concept that Ohio’s Sunshine Law applies not only to the public bodies entrusted with ultimate decision-making authority, but also to their advisory boards.

Court backs revoking licenses of former Anderson coach Gannett News Service The Anderson High baseball coach who resigned after a female student accused him of inappropriate sexual conduct won’t get his teaching license back, a Hamilton County judge ruled last week. Shea Wardwell, 41, of Green Township, was contesting a 2009 decision by the Ohio Department of Education to permanently revoke his teaching license as well as a license that allows him to supervise stu-

dents for extracurricular activities. The agency found Wardwell had a sexual relationship with the student and Wardwell gave police what a Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office investigator believed was a confession. Wardwell was never charged criminally because the girl’s family said they didn’t want her to continue to suffer emotionally. Wardwell resigned in September 2007 under threat of firing. Common Pleas Court Judge Robert Ruehlman upheld the state agency’s

finding in a Tuesday ruling. Wardwell can appeal that decision to the Cincinnatibased 1st District Court of Appeals. If he doesn’t, the state agency’s finding stands and Wardwell never will be allowed to apply for an Ohio teaching license. Wardwell was a health and physical education teacher whose annual salary was $64,209 plus $4,740 for coaching. He played high school baseball for Oak Hills High, played minor league baseball and pitched batting practice and performed other duties for the Cincinnati Reds.

can to prevent crime from escalating,” said Mark Macomber, a trustee on the Urban Redevelopment Corp. Macomber said other planned safety initiatives include restarting the Block Watch program in Mount Washington and building membership for the Citizens on Patrol. M i k e Lacinak, president of the Urban Redevelopment Corp., said the safer people Macomber feel the more likely pedestrian traffic in the business district along Beechmont Avenue will increase. Lacinak “ W e want to create a positive perception,” he said. Macomber said crime is an issue in Mount Washington. However, he said these initiatives should help deter crimes such as vandalism. He said a number of the business owners have already taken a proactive approach by installing cameras. Installing additional lighting is another initiative being discussed. Macomber said funding from the city’s Safe and Clean Neighborhood Fund in the amount of $7,200 will be used for the installation of lighting at the new Mount Washington gateway, which is currently nearing completion. Funding for additional safety initiatives will likely come from grant funding as well as from private and public sources, said Macomber.

Anderson Tea Party forms, plans event

By Lisa Wakeland

If you go

• What: Anderson Tea Party meeting • Topic: “Pressing the Reset Button on Government” • When: 7 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 14 • Where: Anderson High School minitheater, 7560 Forest Road. • Learn more at • Meetings are scheduled for the second Thursday of every month, with locations and times to be determined.

The Tea Party has arrived in Anderson Township and its membership has exploded in the past month. Since forming in early December the Anderson Tea Party has attracted more than 140 like-minded citizens, including Sue Hardenbergh and Tim Kappers. Hardenbergh said it was after attending a few Cincinnati Tea Party events last year that she wanted to make the experience more localized. “I was learning more about the proper role of government in our lives,” she said. “I was so inspired by the quality of people who were just passionate about freedom and protecting freedom.” The Anderson Tea Party, though affiliated with

Cincinnati Tea Party, is an independent group that values the same core principles, Kappers said. “There is a common thread among all (Tea Party) groups,” he said. “We’re not loyal to any (political) party and don’t think the government is adhering to the Constitution.” Disgust with the way the

American political system has evolved is the impetus for the next Anderson Tea Party meeting on Thursday, Jan. 14, with the topic “Pressing the Reset Button on Government.” Hardenbergh said the Anderson Tea Party is developing an action plan and focusing on the May elections to affect the current status quo. “People are seeking authentic leaders,” she said. “If you’re looking for change, it’s never going to happen from the top down.” Kappers said the Anderson Tea Party is trying to encourage citizens to get involved and be active in politics, especially at the local level. “Voting isn’t enough anymore,” he said. “We need to put the power back in the people that know best and the best place to start is where you live.”

Anderson Township residents who live near Johnson Hills Park are concerned about a few of the development proposals. The Anderson Township Park District is working on a long-term plan for Johnson Hills Park, off Little Dry Run and Bridle roads, that includes disc golf, a fishing lake, trails, a tent camping area and other amenities. Park commissioners have also discussed transforming the Moorman House into a historic homestead or minifarm with vegetable gardens and livestock. So far, the majority of resident feedback has been positive – except on potential plans for the Moorman House, an 18th-century home on the northern end of the park. Residents who live near the Moorman House have rated that as the least appealing feature of the Johnson Hills Park development plans due to its proximity to the homes. “The proposed farm with livestock is a great concern due to the possible odor that comes with livestock,” resident Karen D’Agostino, who lives on Crooked Stick Court, wrote on a feedback form. D’Agostino said a significant buffer between the Moorman House and the residences is needed.


The Anderson Township Park District Board of Park Commissioners will discuss resident feedback on the Johnson Hills Park development plans at the next meeting at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 13, at park district headquarters in Juilfs Park, 8249 Clough Pike. Another concern is an entrance and small parking lot off Crooked Stick Court, as well as a connector road from the main entrance on Bridle Road to the northern entrance of the park. Gregory Fermann, who also lives on Crooked Stick Court, commented that the proposed connector road “will necessarily increase traffic through the Crooked Stick entrance and pose an

imminent threat to the safety of children and pedestrians in the neighborhood.” Ken Kushner, executive director for the park district, said there needs to be access to the Moorman House for safety, as requested by the township fire department, and the park proposal is still in its preliminary stages. “We’ll look at the plans and come up with the best possible scenario for a winwin situation,” he said. “We have to leave options and opportunities for future park staff and (township) residents to make the park what they want to make it.” The park commissioners will review and discuss feedback from residents at the next meeting at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 13.

gency Shelter. The project, funded in part by the Guardian Angels 5K Run Committee fund and the students’ own fundraising, was part of a new annual project, which the 5K Committee is calling “Pay it Forward.� Karen Veeneman and Kelly Lyle of the 5K committee started the projects by seeding each religion class in grades 5-8 with funds for the project. The 5K funds were augmented with a bake sale run by the eighth graders, which raised an additional $175. The Bethany House Services focuses on homeless women with children, helping them get back on their feet. Their emergency shelter, the site of the project, is the first stop in their recovery program for many of their clients. Fifty-one eighth graders spent the day there stripping and waxing floors, reorganizing play rooms, cleaning and repairing toys, general outside cleanup and making stockings for all the residents for Christmas. “I found it to be a very good experience and really enjoyed the day. We all

had fun,� said student Andrew Hay. The students also cooked dinner and baked Christmas cookies for the residents of the Bethany House during “Pay it Forward.� “All of us were amazed on how much your group accomplished. You are all angels sent to help us out,� wrote Laura Borsky of Bethany House Services in a thank-you note to the school.

Mudd, Brogan lead Anderson to 6-2 Lady Redskins off to strong start on courts

Other girls hoops happenings Turpin Spartans (5-5, 1-3)

By Anthony Amorini

A 13-point loss in its season opener against Lakota East, 44-31, didn’t keep Anderson’s varsity basketball team down for long. After slipping Dec. 1 against Lakota East, the Lady Redskins rebounded with a five-game win streak while starting the season at 6-2. “I wouldn’t call it a fast start. We got drubbed in our first game,” Anderson head coach Chris Carletti joked. “But I thought it might take us a little longer to be this far over .500.” “I knew we would be tough. There are no egos on this team,” Carletti added. During the five-game streak, Anderson won each of the games by double-digits while defeating its opponents by an average of 18.8 points a game. “They play hard and they don’t get discouraged easily,” Carletti said of his Redskins besting Winton Woods by 26 points, 61-35, immediately following the loss to Lakota East. Anderson continued its winning ways until the girls ran into Ursuline. The Lions are Cincinnati’s No. 3 team



Anderson High School senior Erica Mudd draws contact from a Milford defender Tuesday, Jan. 5, while driving toward the basket during a Lady Redskin win over the Eagles, 54-31. according to the Enquirer’s Division I poll for week five. Though Anderson was ranked No. 10, the Lady Redskins still gave the Lions a scare by sending the game into overtime Dec. 21 before falling by two points to Ursuline, 42-40. “It was nice to go on the road, play a good team and compete but it was kind of a young loss,” Carletti said of Ursuline. “We had the lead on the last possession of overtime and regulation. A more veteran team probably wouldn’t have made some of the mistakes we made.”


Anderson High School sophomore Kara Giesting brings the ball up the floor Tuesday, Jan. 5, during a Lady Redskin win over Milford High School, 54-31. Early in the season, Anderson (6-2, 4-0) and Harrison (8-2, 4-1) were atop the standings in the Fort Ancient Valley Conference Buckeye Division. Winton Woods (2-8, 04) won five consecutive Buckeye Division titles before relinquishing control of the FAVC this winter. “It’s encouraging because we are not used to it,” Carletti said. “We are used to looking up at Winton Woods, but we knew the league was wide open this year.

Anderson junior Mackenzie Kenney puts the finishing touches on a layup Tuesday, Jan. 5, during a road game against Milford High School.

“We are in good position now but it is way too early to get comfortable,” Carletti said. Senior forward Erica Mudd and junior guard Jessica Brogan appear quite comfortable in their role as the Lady Redskins’ scorers. Through eight games, Mudd was averaging 12.3 points a game with Brogan close behind at 10.5 points a game. Mudd was also contributing 8.1 rebounds and 2.5 steals a game. Senior forward Audrey Crago (6.6 points, 7.8 rebounds a game), junior forward Mackenzie Kenney (6.3 points, 5.9 rebounds a

• Started season at 2-0 before five-game losing streak. Turpin is 3-0 after snapping five-game slide with win Dec. 30 over Mount Healthy, 61-59. • Led by sophomore forward Mariah Gador (10.7 points, 5.8 rebounds, 3.2 steals and 1.3 blocks a game) and sophomore guard Ashley Long (10.2 points, 2.1 assists a game). • Senior forward Tara Jones close behind sophomore duo at 8.3 points, 4.4 rebounds a game. • Host local rivals from McNicholas at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 20.

Miami Valley Christian (4-3)

• Posted three-game win streak following 0-1 start with wins over Immaculate Conception (64-20, Dec. 7), Riverview East (66-12, Dec. 10) and Miami Valley School (68-45, Dec. 12). • Also defeated Troy Christian (56-46, Dec. 17).

game) and sophomore point guard Kara Giesting (5.6 points, 2.3 assists a game) were also statistical standouts. “We are still very young,” Carletti said. “I’m not convinced yet by anything we’ve done. I know we will play hard and battle but we have a lot of work to do before we start assuming things.”

Anderson adds 2 to hall of fame

Lady Rockets ready for rematches By Anthony Amorini

Rematches against Badin and Purcell Marian high schools will be key for McNicholas High School’s girls’ basketball team if the Lady Rockets aim to retain its conference title. During the inaugural year for the Girls’ Greater Cincinnati League Grey Central Division, McNick took first place in the new division at 16-8 overall with a conference record of 7-3. Badin was a distant second last winter at 4-6 in the division with Purcell taking fourth place at 0-10 in the GGCL. But Badin (8-1) and Purcell (5-3) started this winter at 2-1 in the GGCL as both teams downed the Lady Rockets early in the season. Standing at 5-6 overall, McNick is currently third in the GGCL Grey Central Division with a conference mark of 1-3. “Obviously those are going to be very important games late in the

year,” McNick head coach Gregg Flammer said looking forward to rematches with Badin and Purcell. “We are playing hard and we are right in every game. We just have not been able to finish those close ones,” Flammer added. After starting the season at 1-3, McNick posted a three-game win streak before falling to Purcell, 50-46. Entering its contest against Badin at .500, the Lady Rockets fell to the Rams, 55-50, on Wednesday, Jan. 6, while dropping to 5-6. “Badin still has a lot of division games left and I think they are the team to beat,” Flammer said. “I think we could still make a run (at the GGCL Grey Central Division title) but we can’t lose any more division games.” McNick kicks off a string of three road games late in the season with a contest at Purcell Marian at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 3. The series of road games concludes with McNick traveling to face Badin

one week later at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 10. “The teams that beat us were very good. It was a tough stretch of the schedule,” Flammer said of McNick’s 5-6 start. Senior guard Lauren Mazzaro and junior guard Stephanie Krusling are currently the Lady Rockets’ top scoring threats. Mazzaro is averaging 14.3 points, 2.7 assists and 3.1 steals a game. Krusling is averaging 8.1 points, 5.6 rebounds and 3.2 steals a game. “Lauren is playing like a senior and doing a nice job. We lean on her to score a lot and she has really responded,” Flammer said. Junior guard Tricia Walsh (6.0 points, 2.5 steals a game), senior guard Maggie Daly (5.8 points a game), junior forward Amanda Conrad (5.4 points, 6.9 rebounds a game) and senior guard Evann Farrell (4.4 points a game) have also been key contributors, Flammer said.

Bombers’ basketball bucks trend Several Barracuda Swim Team members recently signed National Letters of Intent to swim for college.

Amanda Hardewig, a Turpin High School senior, signs a letter of intent to swim for the University of Cincinnati.

Katie Nemann, a Turpin High School senior, signs a letter of intent to swim with the University of Cincinnati.

Yogi Berra, déjà vu philosopher extraordinaire, would be proud. For the second straight year, the St. Xavier High School basketball team won its season-opener over McNicholas, lost three straight games – including a letdown to Moeller in the third game of the season – and entered the National Jesuit Christmas Classic with a 1-3 record. But after losing in the first round of the Classic last season, the Bombers bucked Berra’s balderdash. They bested three teams in three days to win the tournament, which was hosted by Georgetown Prep in Washington, D.C., Dec. 28-30. St. X defeated Miami Belen Jesuit 46-44 in the final on a last-second field goal by senior guard Alex Longi, who finished with five points. It was his only basket of the game. St. X defeated Jesuit New Orleans 48-41 in the opening round before besting Baltimore Loyola Blakefield 54-18 in the semifinal. The Bombers led 13-0 after the first quarter and held Blakefield to 14.3 percent shooting from the field. Senior forward Luke Massa, who averaged 16 points, five rebounds and 2.3 steals per game during the Classic, was named tournament MVP. The Bombers’ bid for four consecutive victories, however, was denied by Greater Catholic League rival Roger Bacon. The Spartans overcame a seven-point deficit late in the fourth quarter thanks to six quick points by junior guard Paul Byrd, who drilled the game-winning three with less than a minute to play.

St. Xavier High School football lineman Matt James recently was named to the USA Today First Team. USA Today lauded James as an All-State player who already has NFL size and strength.

Longi played well for the Bombers, scoring a seasonhigh 22 points to go with eight boards and two steals. St. X, despite shooting 54 percent from the field and 42 percent from beyond the arc, had trouble from the foul line, converting just six of 20 attempts (30 percent). Aside from Longi (12.9 points per game) and Massa (11.8), who are two of the top five scorers in the GCLSouth, St. X has also received contributions from senior forwards Brandon Polking (6.4 points and 3.1

rebounds, St. Al’s Bridgetown alum) and David Niehaus (5.3 points and 3.0 rebounds), as well as junior guard Will Muething (4.5 points, 1.6 assists and 1.8 steals) and senior guard Ben Holcomb (2.5 points and 1.1 assists). The Bombers, which fell to 4-4 (1-2) with the loss to Roger Bacon, are in the midst of some intriguing GCL streaks. They’ve lost to the Spartans in back-to-back years

and have come up short against Moeller in eight straight games, including five times by six points or fewer. St. X hasn’t beaten Moeller since a 64-53 win on Feb. 17, 2006.

Last week’s question

Do you think requiring passengers to go through a body scanner, which produces an image of one’s naked body, at airports would help increase security? “NO! All it will do is humiliate innocent people.” E.S.

“It might help but it seems that no matter how ‘secure’ we're told the airports are, someone always manages to get through. “Personally I wouldn't object to being scanned if it would prevent one more attempt at terrorism, no matter how remote.” R.L.H. “To my knowledge, since September 11, 2001, there have been two reports of passengers successfully smuggling explosive devices aboard airliners. To subject millions of travelers to such scrutiny is overkill. If the additional delays don't drive customers away, the cost of the scanners and staff to man them might be the straw that breaks the financial backs of airlines.” R.V. “Yes, body scanners would improve airline security, but an approach that is not politically correct would improve it a lot more. All non-white travelers, especially males, who cannot speak English or who speak it with a foreign accent should be subjected to extra screening, including the full body scan, pat downs, etc. “To subject white, 80-year-old grandmothers who speak with an American accent to such procedures is ludicrous. All one has to do is to look at the identity of the vast majority of suicide bombers. Let's get serious about this before more Americans are killed.” T.W.H. “As a retired airline employee with experience in both domestic and international operations at numerous U.S. airports, I'm thoroughly convinced that, even if there were no TSA or other security personnel or machines, the impact on air terrorism and/or hijacking would be nil. All attempts at airport security to date are essentially feel-good measures that have little, if any, impact on actual passenger/aircraft safety. “Any system can be foiled and any truly dedicated miscreant can penetrate any system. TSA employees perform their assignments splendidly; unfortunately their existence is superfluous to the mission. Considering the billions of cumulative wasted hours standing in security lines, the cost of equipment and the phenomenal TSA labor costs, we would be well advised to eliminate this unnecessary rights infringement altogether. “Armed flight crews and a vastly increased Air Marshall force would be a much better approach to the problem. Never knowing who is watching what would be a much more effective deterrent. Shoes, liquids, underwear, etc.; what's next in this well-meaning but wholly reactive system?” B.G. “Don't laugh, but consider this method for doing thorough

“Absolutely. It reduces judgement calls by screeners/profilers over who will be patted down and increases security.” R.S.H.

Have a special room for disrobing, separated by sex and private, and provide a cheap pair of scrubs, included in the price of the ticket, for each passenger. Passengers who are aware of this screening procedure could come dressed appropriately, so they can put their previously worn clothing into a cheap duffel bag which can then be checked by security and stored on the plane. “Considering what we are trying to protect against, this would be a small price for passengers to pay; and think of all the avoided stress of not having to worry about what to wear to look good!” Bill B. “Considering the times we are going through, I don’t think there’s anything wrong in passengers going through body scanners. Airport and all security is very important. “Our government hasn’t been doing enough and the people we have performing these functions haven’t been alert. This is a sad situation, but it is now a fact of life.” E.S. “I think that a full body scan is important for our security on airplanes. I'm sad it has come to this, but it has and all of us need to do whatever it takes to be part of the security for all.” E.E.C. “After the ‘Shoe Bomber’ we were required to remove shoes. Now, after ‘Detroit’ it is suggested we need body scans. “In each case we are closing the stable door after the horse has bolted. While body scanning reduces a possible risk, it won't address the next idea our enemies have, simply because they are actively seeking solutions to circumvent all our known checks. “The harsh reality is that, as long as they regard us as ‘The Enemy,’ they will use all their knowledge and intelligence, which we underestimate at our peril, to find new ways of attacking us. “That is why several world leaders over history have pointed out that ‘You have to make peace with your enemies.’ Sometimes it may be hard to be the first to turn the other cheek, but in the long run,that is the only way to stop the killing.” D.R. “Obviously. Anyone who objects is willing to put others at risk. M.P.B.





Author: Kevin O’Brien is not fit for public office As an Anderson Township resident for 25 years, I am shocked and appalled at the behavior of Kevin O’Brien. Furthermore, I feel as though I am a victim of voter fraud and I’m embarrassed to admit I voted for such an individual. O’Brien’s actions as an investment advisor led to the revocation of his Series 7 license, an action by FINRA that is considered the regulator’s harshest censure. Surely FINRA doesn’t hand down the industry “death penalty” for a “modest error in judgment.” But never mind that for the moment and consider his behavior since the FINRA action became public. It is this sequence of deceptive and shameful actions that clearly confirms he is not fit for public office. His first reaction was to rush to a notary and take the oath of office privately before public outrage could threaten to block his installation. Second, he held a press conference at which he made a ridiculous, convoluted statement about his Series 7 license being held by his firm, not him personally.

This would be similar to a basketball coach being charged with a technical foul and getting thrown out of a game for misconduct, then Rex Johnson later explaining Community that the rulebook treats this Press guest as a “bench” columnist foul and therefore was really charged against the team and owners. O’Brien’s “explanation” is nothing more than an outrageous attempt to cloud the issue and confuse the public. If that wasn’t enough, he then stated that he “voluntarily” surrendered is brokerage license and “agreed” not to re-apply for another one. Yeah, sure. And I’ll show you a driver who “voluntarily” surrendered his driver’s license after too many DUIs. His continued failure to offer a straightforward explanation is a clear indication of the kind of trustee he will turn out to be.

Kevin O’Brien’s actions as an investment advisor led to the revocation of his Series 7 license, an action by FINRA that is considered the regulator’s harshest censure. Don’t be surprised if at some point he tells us that it all depends on what the definition of the word “is” is. Kevin O’Brien has shown us enough. We’re never going to be able to trust a word that comes out of his mouth. The authority to govern is rested in the faith and trust of the people. O’Brien has violated that faith and trust to such an extent that every action he takes as trustee will be called into question, and therefore the government in Anderson Township runs the risk of paralysis and dysfunction. For the good of the community, he should resign immediately. Rex Johnson lives on Berrywood Drive in Anderson Township.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Journal owes us the truth

The question to which I and others want an answer is this: Where was the coverage of Kevin O’Brien’s legal and ethical problems in the weeks leading up to the election? This story was not unknowable or “top secret.” The paper had plenty of time and space for bogus ethical questions about the incumbent trustees, but not a word about a real, documented case of legal wrong-doing by the candidate who eventually won. I’m sorry, but I do not believe that this was not a purposeful omission on the part of the Forest Hills Journal. Was it personal? Political? If this is the best you can do, you are in the wrong business. You owe us the truth. Debra Sanders Towerview Lane Anderson Township

Electing O’Brien was ‘error in judgment’

I read Kevin O’Brien’s letter printed in the Forest Hills Journal Dec. 30 with both disbelief and disgust. The arrogance is amazing to me. He hasn’t been in office even a month and he is criticizing the prior trustees spending to help this township (i.e., parking, upscale restaurant, movie theater). He stated he had a checklist prior to his first meeting of the trustees. However, it is unfortunate he didn’t include on his checklist to the voters when he ran for trustees “be honest about my past.” Instead he hid his past and stated recently that it was up to the other candidates to find it and tell the public. An “error in judgment” – what is he talking about? He misappropriated client funds for personal

use and was fired from his prior employer. The only error in judgment I see is electing him as trustee. Mr. O’Brien should have come clean about his past. Maybe he should have prepared his checklist prior to the election. Or, maybe he forgot about the misappropriation and firing. I guess in his eyes if you steal and never get caught (charged), it isn’t stealing. I am glad my letter to the editor prior to the election was headed so well. It looks as if Anderson Township can join its fellow townships and be embroiled in controversy, too. Rob Herking Ashgrove Drive Anderson Township

Where was reporting on O’Brien?

I am surprised that none of the Forest Hills Journal reporters have uncovered one of the most vocal forces behind the Kevin O’Brien story. I receive an e-mail almost daily from Jeanie Peter, wife of defeated incumbent trustee Al Peter. These e-mails come in the guise of neighborhood security watch alerts. If you read the FINRA report, the incident in question happened in September of 2008, well before the election. Ms. Peter made no mention of this incident during the campaign. Beverly Bross-Kelly Stoney Bridge Drive Anderson Township

Actions raise concerns

I’m writing to express my opinion that recently elected Anderson Township trustee Mr. Kevin O’Brien’s previous unethical actions raise serious concerns about his fitness for office. Mr. O’Brien admitted to know-

As any broker will tell you, losing your brokerage license permanently is a very big deal and not something that results from a “modest error of judgment”. Mr. O’Brien willfully kept this information from voters and now is talking out of both sides of his mouth. First he accused his “political foes” of circulating the FINRA report, and now tells us that it was actually the duty of his political foes to find the report and disclose it to voters prior to the election. Mr. O’Brien ran on an “integrity” campaign but has truly lost the moral authority to govern and questions about Mr. O’Brien’s integrity may be problematic for the township’s bond rating. His only chance for redemption is the immediate resignation of his office. Dennis W. Blazer Hillrigde Court Anderson Township

New Newtown eatery tells ‘Tall Tails’ Tall Tails Bistro is Newtown’s newest restaurant, and it’s offering a different take on familiar fare.

She said she’s been planning the restaurant for some time, and with the opportunity now in front of her she’s making the most of it. “It’s a plan I’ve kind of had in my head for years,” Collins said. Collins, an Anderson Township resident, said she chose to open her restaurant in Newtown in part because her mother, Pam Janson, found the empty building almost a year ago. Collins said she fell in love with the building, and after buying it she and her family spent seven months

Church continues prayer shawl ministry Since 2005, women who knit have been making prayer shawls to give to members of the congregation and friends of the Mount Washington United Methodist Church. As the shawls are made, they are prayed over by the woman doing the knitting. Once the shawl is completed, it is brought to the church, and a group of women lay their hands on the shawl and pray for the person for whom it was made. The women also address a letter to the recipient of the shawl. There are women who knit the shawls, others who provide the material and others who pray over the shawls. These shawls are given to bring comfort in trying conditions as well as in joyous situations. Mount Washington United Methodist Church is located at 6365

What happens when we keep on keeping on? Father Lou Guntzelman Perspectives

always thought that if you worked hard at handling your life when you w e r e y o u n g e r, t h i n g s w o u l d eventually

get better. “To me, life is like climbing a mountain. I’ve always had the expectation that by this time in my life I would come to a kind of plateau where the troubles of life level off. “Now I’m beginning to wonder if there will ever be a plateau. The mountain just keeps going up – and I’m getting so tired of climbing.” I had known this man for years and had a great respect for him. This was one of those times that many of us clergy wish we had a special word or prayer to salve someone’s troubled mind. I realize now that all I have is the same humanness, a listening ear, and a heart that cares.

“As a mountain-climber, what are your options?” I inquired. “Well,” he mused, “I guess I could just sit and weep or wait for someone to come by and help me; or I could slide down to the bottom and stop climbing. “Then again, I could give up completely and jump off the mountain and end all the climbing and worrying.” After a long, thoughtful pause, he sighed and suggested, “Or – I can keep on climbing.” You can tell in people’s voices and eyes when they have arrived at an answer that is really the answer, not just an expected or temporary reply. He realized that the true solution called on him for much courage – to change his negative attitude and just keep on keeping on. I asked him whether, in his solution of just keeping on, there was any benefit for him, or for any of us as we climb our mountains, to keep going even when we wonder about stopping. He paused, looked out the window thoughtfully as though he couldn’t think of any benefit.

Mt. Washington teen’s photo honored in library contest Maggie Stewart, 18, of Mount Washington won third place in the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County’s eighth annual Teen Photo Contest, sponsored by Chipotle Mexican Grill. Teens across the area snapped photos of what they love about Cincinnati to enter into one of the contest’s two age categories: 12-14 years and 15-18 years. First-, second-, and third-place winners from each category received a gift card from Chipotle Mexican Grill, an award ribbon and certificate. To view all of the winning photographs, visit the Library’s Teen Photo Contest Wiki in the Virtual Library at en_Photo_Contest and click on “2009 What I Love About Cincinnati.”

Untrustworthy negative thoughts can pester us again and again, “Should I have chosen a different path; if this is the right one shouldn’t it always be easy and enjoyable?” “Why these problems? Are they signs of a wrong choice and a directive to go backward?” “Did I blow it?” But then he did. He smiled, turned, looked me in the eye and resolutely said, “When you keep on climbing the view gets better.” Before me sat a very wise man. A man becoming

even wiser. A man gaining insight into himself and many of the perplexing paradoxes of life. Life is not a disease, not a picnic, nor a punishment. It is a path on which we travel somewhere. We look for meaning, not comfortableness. Our climb may be hard for us at times and call for every ounce of courage we have, but it rewards us by becoming more revealing as we go. Life whispers to us many of its secrets. We learn in our hearts to choose life, not quitting. It’s said: “When you climb a mountain, you feel life you’re meeting God halfway.”

– Brought to you by the Ohio Department of Health –


Somewhere in our lives we chose a road. There will always be Frost’s two paths that diverge in an unknown woods. Maybe even more than two. Once we reach a reasoned conviction of which of the two to follow – which is not always easy to accomplish – we set out on one on them. Then what? Then it’s time for perseverance, to continue steadfastly. Colloquially, it’s time to keep on keeping on. Untrustworthy negative thoughts can pester us again and again, “Should I have chosen a different path; if this is the right one shouldn’t it always be easy and enjoyable?” “Why these problems? Are they signs of a wrong choice and a directive to go backward?” “Did I blow it?” If you wonder about your life in similar ways then you were symbolically present years ago when a man came for an appointment. Though he smiled politely, feelings of disappointment and sadness accompanied him. As his life story unfolded, he lamented, “You know, Father Lou, I’ve

Snowy with a chance of meatballs I know there are lots of different kinds of bank accounts, but I never did hear of a “meatball bank.” That is until Rita Maceachen, a Madeira reader and d e a r friend, told me she keeps a stash of meatballs in her freezer so Rita that she Heikenfeld has some on Rita’s kitchen ready the spur of t h e moment. Rita is an iconic Italian cook with a large family. She has passed the love of entertaining on to her chil-

dren, who are also awesome cooks. She laughingly told me her recipe is a guarded secret – she did say she uses chuck ground three times. Anyway, spaghetti and meatballs is hugely popular now. Every cooking magazine I’ve picked up in the last week had it on the cover. It made me hungry enough to make some for supper. And I’ll say this right now: mine can’t compete with Rita’s, but it’s darn good for a Lebanese girl!

My spaghetti & meatballs

Sauce and meatballs can be frozen. Put the sauce on first and while it’s cooking, make meatballs.

1⁄2 teaspoon dry oregano 1 teaspoon dry basil


Rita’s spaghetti and meatballs.

Spaghetti sauce:

1⁄3 to 1⁄2 cup extra virgin olive oil 1 generous tablespoon garlic, minced Squeeze of anchovy paste (about an inch or so), optional but very good 3 cans, 28 oz. each, diced or crushed good quality tomatoes 1-2 tablespoons tomato paste (freeze the rest in portions)

“So, what’s up with my team?” Cincinnati.Com is the place to view all the action for your school and team. Get team news, schedules, scores and stats, photos and videos, and more. Only at Cincinnati.Com.

Heat olive oil and add garlic and anchovy paste. Cook until garlic is golden and fragrant. Don’t let burn. Add everything else. Bring to a boil, reduce to simmer and cook 30 minutes. Sauce will thicken slightly but shouldn’t get too thick. Adjust seasonings – salt, pepper, bit more oregano, etc. if you want.


I use a 11⁄2-inch scoop and get about 20 to 25 meatballs. You can make them as big or little as you want. You can also use all beef and no pork. 1 pound ground sirloin or your choice 1⁄2 pound sausage (I use half hot and half Italian) 1-2 teaspoons salt or to taste Pepper to taste 1 generous teaspoon minced garlic 2 large eggs, slightly beaten 1 cup Parmesan cheese 11⁄2 cups breadcrumbs (I use fresh) Handful fresh parsley Up to 1 cup water (mixture should be fairly wet but able to be balled up) Parmesan for garnish Break up meat. Then put everything else but water in and mix with a light hand. Add water – don’t add the whole cup at once as you may not need all of it. But mixture should be very moist, almost wet, to make nicely formed balls. Brown meatballs in olive oil. Add to sauce. Simmer about 30 minutes. Meanwhile put a pound of pasta on to boil. When

pasta is cooked and drained, put back in pan and stir in a few ladlefuls of sauce. Toss and cook over high heat for a minute so pasta absorbs this bit of sauce. Transfer to serving bowls and ladle more sauce over pasta along with several meatballs. Pass the Parmesan!

Breaking meatball news!

After I turned my column in, Rita Maceachen called me and relented – her heirloom meatball recipe is in our online version of this column. You have to try these! For the recipe go to or call 513-591-6163.

Like Entenmann’s pound cake

I made this and was amazed at how much it looked like and tasted like the commercial product. This does not have the traditional pound cake texture, height or weight, but it’s really good and very tender. I guess it’s the powdered sugar that does it. The only leavening is the eggs which is why you have to follow directions beating it. It reminds me of an oldfashioned pound cake which took a pound each of butter, eggs, sugar and flour. 2 sticks salted butter, room temperature 2 cups powdered sugar

1 tablespoon vanilla extract or lemon extract 3 large eggs, room temperature 12⁄3 cup flour Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Spray an 81⁄2-inch loaf pan. Beat butter with sugar on high speed for five minutes. It will get fluffy. Add extract, 1 egg and about 1⁄3 of the flour. Beat for two minutes. Add the other egg, add another 1⁄3 of flour and beat two minutes. Add the last egg, the rest of the flour and beat another two minutes. Pour batter into pan. Bake 50 to 65 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan on rack about 30 minutes, then turn out of pan and slice.

Mercy hosts annual holiday concert Mercy Hospital Anderson recently hosted its annual holiday concert in the hospital atrium. So many people attended the concert that it was standing room only. The event featured The

Apostles, a Christian contemporary praise band from Anderson Hills United Methodist Church under the direction of Hyelan Pearce. The Apostles have played together for nearly a decade and their music features a

variety of inspirational Christian pieces that offer a message of hope and healing. “Every year, The Apostles fill our hallways with the holiday spirit,” said Patricia Schroer,

president/CEO, Mercy Hospital Anderson. “The Apostles created a festive mood for our physicians, staff, and volunteers. They brought holiday cheer to those who unfortunately are hospitalized during the

holidays. We all felt uplifted while listening to their music.” Dr. Peter Ruehlman, The Apostles’ drummer and a medical oncologist on staff at Mercy Hospital Anderson, notes the profound importance of faith and spirituality on the healing process. “Music touches us at a core level and connects us vitally to God in a way that conversation sometimes cannot,” said Ruehlman. Ruehlman graduated from the University of Cincinnati medical school and resident oncology. He is a Westwood native and a 1970 La Salle High School graduate. For more information about The Apostles, call Hyelan Pearce, Anderson Hills United Methodist Church, at 231-4172.

Readers learn how to overcome job search roadblocks and gain confidence and skills in understanding themselves and in dealing with employers and col-

leagues.

Longtime barber Hugh Cornetet dies ANDERSON TOWNSHIP – Every now and then Hugh Cornetet used to take a break from his barbershop and walk the three doors down Beechmont Avenue to his wife’s beauty salon. “I used to accuse him of trying to work less at his business and take over my business,” said his wife of 51 years, Sherri Cornetet of Anderson Township. “But he helped me a lot. He did all the book work for the business. He used to come into the shop and tease the girls.” Mr. Cornetet died Jan. 2 from complications of Parkinson’s disease and a traumatic brain injury. He was 74. For 40 years, Mr. Cornetet (pronounced COREnet) held court at Hugh’s Barber Shop, offering customers a good laugh and the latest gossip along with a little off the top. “He had all kinds of reg-

ulars,” Mrs. Cornetet said. “He cut the Forest Hills (Local School District) football players’ Cornetet. hair. One of the guys (from Anderson High School) said he’d get his head shaved if the rest of the players did, and Hugh shaved their heads. That was the year (2007) they won their championship.” Mr. Cornetet learned he had Parkinson’s disease in 2000, and his wife took over the barbershop in 2007. “I wanted to sustain the business, to keep it going,” she said. “That’s been my goal, to uphold his name.” The couple married in 1958 after meeting at a bowling alley. “I was watching my dad bowl,” Mrs. Cornetet said. “(Hugh) came up to me and said ‘Hi’, but I thought he was too old. But he kept

pursing me and calling me.” Mr. Cornetet was 19 when he and his twin brother, Paul, graduated from barber school. He worked at different shops for about 10 years before opening his own business. “You couldn’t go anywhere with him that he didn’t run into somebody he knew,” Mrs. Cornetet said. The couple had children and Mrs. Cornetet earned her cosmetologist’s license. She worked at different shops and ran her own salon for several years, but the couple never worked together. She said she never wanted to work in a barbershop. “That was a man’s place,” she said. Now the shop, still under her husband’s name, serves men and women. “Hair’s hair,” Sherri Cornetet said. “It’s all the same.” In addition to his wife, survivors include a daughter, Shelly Lytle of Indian

Feature of the Week

The Doolin House Bed & Breakfast

SIESTA KEY. Gulf front condo. Our complex is just 20 feet to one of the World’s Best Rated Beaches! Bright and airy, nicely appointed. All amenities. Cinci owner, 513-232-4854

Somerset, Kentucky’s Premiere Inn Located Just Minutes from Lake Cumberland

There is a joke among friends here, “It’s a Phoenix that has risen from the ashes. ”When Charles and Allison Hahn Sobieck purchased the property at 502 North Main Street (in Somerset, Kentucky), there was a lot of work to be done, to say the least. With the vision of a B & B and a home in ruins, there were little choices. The dilapidated structure was removed, then reconstructed as it had been in the 1850’s. It’s a brand new home. A bit of an unusual concept for a bed and breakfast. “We reconstructed the home from scratch. This gave us the benefit of designing every amenity possible along the way, ”said Allison Sobieck, owner. Every room is equipped with many amenities you don’t often find in a traditional bed and breakfast, but rather a fine hotel. Every room has a full sized closet with a pair of micro-fiber robes hanging in them, 400- count Egyptian cotton sheets, cable TV with DVD players, queen sized beds, and a host of other things. For instance, 2 rooms have gas fireplaces and 3 rooms have whirlpool tubs. We even offer many add on amenities such as massage, dinner, flowers, etc…

INDIANA The rooms are only half of the reason to come to The Doolin House. Owners Charles and Allison just happen to both be chefs. Some of the breakfast specialties include Caramel Banana French Toast and Southern Eggs Benedict (2 fried green tomatoes topped with 2 slices of smoked bacon, 2 eggs over easy and Hollandaise). Chuck is usually in charge of breakfast and tries to do new and different things every day. Chef Chuck pointed out, “It’s fun to experiment with breakfast. It’s the one meal that encompasses all foods. It’s perfectly acceptable to see smoked salmon or a pork cutlet at the breakfast table. ”For those in no rush to rise and shine, breakfast in bed is served at no additional charge. When you need a weekend get away that’s not too far from home or you are planning your summer vacation to beautiful Lake Cumberland, remember that The Doolin House Bed and Breakfast is only a phone call away.
