BECAUSE COMMUNITY MATTERS

Newtown officials are trying to decide what to do with this wooly mammoth tusk.JEANNE HOUCK/THE COMMUNITY PRESS

Newtown mulls future of a tusk By Jeanne Houck

NEWTOWN — The village has a problem of the prehistoric sort. There are a number of Native American artifacts and reproductions in the American Indian Education Center that Newtown recently opened in the village’s new town hall at 3537 Church St. But it’s a wooly mammoth tusk that’s long been displayed in the old town hall across the street at 3536 Church St. that is causing a fossil fuss. The 7-foot-3-inch tusk was donated to Newtown after it was found in Camp Dennison in

1967. “It has been in our display case for years,” said Village Councilman Chuck Short. “We may have the Cincinnati Museum Center do something to help preserve it and then put it in a different case.” The reason? “The case is not museumquality,” said Councilman Joe Harten.

“So we are discussing whether to have the Cincinnati Museum Center conserve it properly, and if so, what should be done with it afterwards. “It probably would not survive moving to the new building without some conservation work and it might not survive very much longer in its current case,” Harten said. “So something needs to be done.” The Cincinnati Museum Center helped Newtown research and put together six display cases in council chambers at the new town hall to showcase artifacts – some on loan See TUSK, Page A2

Cellphone tower in Mt. Washington denied By Forrest Sellers fsellers@communitypress.com

MT. WASHINGTON — A request to build a cellphone tower in Mt. Washington has been denied. Verizon Wireless had submitted a plan to construct a 160-foot tall cellphone tower at 2115 Beechmont Ave. The tower would be in the business district by Tom Roth Place. According to a report filed by the The Cincinnati Zoning Hearing Examiner, Verizon did not “demonstrate” why it could not use a pre-existing cellphone tower in the business district. Additionally, the report said the proposed tower did not incorporate a design “that is least intrusive for the area.” Use of the pre-existing tower located by the Dairy Mart at 2249 Beechmont Ave. had been recommended by Mt. Washington Community Council members who attended the Jan. 8 zoning hearing. They also cited the results from a 2010 zoning case involving a request to build a 150-foot tall tower in Pleasant Ridge. Construction of the tower was denied. The council members said a number of the conditions in the case were similar to those in Mt. Washington such as the aesthetic impact the tower would have on the surrounding community. The decision was welcomed by recently elected council board member Sue Doucleff, who attended the zoning hearing. “This is good news for the

community,” said Doucleff. “This proves what can happen when you do your homework and Doucleff present a logical and legallybased argument.” Doucleff said that while Verizon mounted a strong case the council members did as well. “Verizon did not prove (it) had investigated all co-location possibilities,” she said. The cellphone tower was a discussion topic during the Jan. 15 Mt. Washington Community Council meeting. Council was considering its options in the event the tower was approved. The council board was leaning toward appealing the decision if necessary. However, legal and filing costs had been a concern among some of the members. Jo Ann Kavanaugh, a former board member of the Mt. Washington Community Council who also attended the hearing, said even though the tower would not have been in a prominent location, it would still be in full view of anybody driving or walking through Mt. Washington. Kavanaugh, though, felt the matter may resurface. “There is a window in which Verizon can appeal (the decision) so we will have to wait and see,” she said. Representatives for Verizon Wireless were unable to be reached for comment.

Anderson Twp. considering a motto By Lisa Wakeland lwakeland@communitypress.com

Is there a phrase that perfectly describes Anderson Township? How about “Greener than Green?” Anderson was, after all, Ohio’s first township to implement a program dedicated to preserving greenspace. Anderson Township, like many communities, doesn’t have a motto or slogan, but many others have adopted them. Batavia’s is, “Historic Past, Bright Future.” Alexandria, Ky., is the place “Where the City Meets the Country,” and Blue Ash wants to “Aspire. Achieve. Advance.” Resident Dr. John Wehby said it’s about time for Anderson Township to have a slogan, and he’s the one who offered “Greener than Green.” “When you’re called a township rather than a city, I think you lose recognition a little bit,” he said. “I think Anderson Township deserves to have a slogan. I think it

will bring some prestige.” Resident Mary Bare was a bit surprised when she learned Anderson Township didn’t have a slogan. Bare liked “Greener than Green” and said even if it wasn’t that, having a township motto is a good idea. “It would help attract people,” she said. “It does for other places.” Margaret Kuebler was also unaware that Anderson Township didn’t have a slogan. She agrees it might help attract more people to the community, which could boost property values. Kuebler likes Wehby’s suggestion but said, “I think it should also focus on the public schools.” Almost every company or association has some phrase that provides recognition to a broad base, Wehby said, and he thinks this would help make Anderson Township more visible to those outside the immediate community. “It’s an outstanding township, it’s run very

or motto. “It doesn’t seem like it’d help much,” he said. If officials want to adopt one Coop said they should “make it a contest” and ask for suggestions.

Vickie Laumann said she’s indifferent about having an Anderson Township slogan. Laumann likes “Greener than Green,” but she also said the township should seek

ship bookstore, 8523 Beechmont Ave., closed its doors Saturday, Jan.18. “It’s sad we won’t have the one-on-one with the families who would come in … because it did become that neighborhood gathering place,” said Krista Bastin, who started the store in 2011 with her then-husband, Troy. “Many (customers) became friends and part of the family. It’s up to God what the next direction is.” Stonekry started as a band and evolved into a nonprofit organization before the bookstore opened. Bastin said her stepson, Caleb, who has autism and is now 13, inspired them to start the retail shop as a way to help increase autism awareness. “There are so many families being affected by autism, and we thought having a safe place that was family and special needs friendly with resources for people to come get was probably the best way to accomplish that,” Bastin said of why they opened the bookstore.

Many people came to the store and shared personal stories about how autism touched their lives or asked questions about all aspects of autism spectrum disorder. “Seeing the progress we’ve made in the understanding and the awareness is incredible,” Bastin said. And many Stonekry patrons showed an outpouring of support on

Facebook, after a note was posted about the store’s closing. “This is sad news for many of us,” wrote Mimi Sinclair. “Thank you for all of your time and efforts in creating the special place that was Stonekry.” Anna Kitaevich Naberhaus said Stonekry has touched many people and the nonprofit will continue to have strong support.

Robert Genheimer, curator of archeology at the Cincinnati Museum Center, said at the opening of the “Newtown Municipal Center/American Indian Education Center” last November that Newtown has a lot of valuable excavation sites because the village sits in a large valley with high, flat terraces above flood level. Newtown renovated a building that had been a church and then a firehouse into a new town hall after the village outgrew its old quarters. For now, the police department remains in the old town hall. The department soon will take over more space in the building.

Anderson senior earns perfect score on ACT

Rebecca Tian recently joined a select group of students in the Forest Hills School District when she earned a perfect score on her ACT - 36. The Anderson High School senior secured her perfect score on her first try at thetest. She said she was both surprised and pleased by her score. “I did not expect to get a perfect score,” she said. “I felt pretty confident that I scored a 34 or a 35.”

Rebecca attributes the grade to a combination of things including: great support from her parents (Binyu Tian and Mengmeng Jiang); the Tian culmination of her studies over the years, the positive influence of her teachers from kindergarten to now, and preparation.

For three months prior to the test, Rebecca adhered to a steady ACT preparation regime prescribed by her parents. Beginning three months prior to her ACT testing date Rebecca began taking practice tests. She took one test per week for two months, then one month out increased to two practice tests per week. While many have asked Rebecca about her future plans for college, the answer is not easy.

Her interests are many so narrowing down her focus is proving to be a challenge. At this point, her options are open for both her major and where she will continue her education after high school. As she ponders her future educational options, she’s also very invested in enjoying her senior year of high school. Rebecca will continue to work hard as a student and is looking forward to participating in as

many after-school activities as time will allow. One such focus will be theater. She’s hopeful of taking a leadership role behind the scenes. She’s also interested in school clubs. In the past she’s enjoyed an art club and cooking club. In addition, she has been involved with Academic Quiz Team, orchestra (viola), Latin Club, National Honor Society and more.

STEM AWARD

Guardian Angels School and Michelle Gallagher, seventh and eighth grade science teacher, receive the Governor's Thomas Edison Award for Excellence in STEM Education. To receive the award, schools had to conduct a local science fair, qualify students for one of the Academy's district science days, and have students participate in youth science opportunities beyond the classroom. Thirty professionals evaluated the applications in a blind review process. Guardian Angels School was the only grade school in Cincinnati that received this prestigious award this year. In addition to science classes, Guardian Angels students also participate in experiments in the science lab and Robotics and Engineering Club. THANKS TO ANNE PAVELY

McNicholas junior guard’s deep into distribution By Mark D. Motz

mmotz@communitypress.com

MT. WASHINGTON — Take heart. Children do listen to their parents. Greg Kent lifted his right arm - elbow cocked, wrist bent forward - and proved it. “My dad taught me that, to goose neck it, to follow through,” Kent said of his earliest basketball memories. “I started playing at the YMCA when I was 4 or 5 and my dad was my coach.” A dozen years later the Anderson Township resident and Immaculate Heart of Mary alumnus is a junior point guard at McNicholas High School in his first season starting for the Rockets. While he was taught to shoot as a tyke, Kent is making a name for himself as a passer. He leads the Greater Catholic League Coed in assists at 4.6 per game, including a season high nine in a league game against Hamilton Badin Jan. 10. “I’m looking to pass,” Kent said. “As a point guard I’m looking to get my teammates involved as much as possible. “When I’m driving I always look for somebody to get the ball to. When they collapse, I can kick it outside. When they come out on me, I look to the post. If they don’t do anything, then I can go to the basket.” Head coach Tim Monahan said that’s impressive early in his varsity career. “We knew he could be a very special player. It’s been nice to have a point guard who distributes like he does, but he can score and he can defend, too. “He’s got those big shoulders and he’s physical. He uses his body well. He can get to the rim, but he can shoot the three, too, if we need him to do that. We stress patience and he usually makes pretty good decisions with the ball.” Kent – who also pitches and plays outfield for the McNick baseball team – said his favorite basketball memory was winning a CYO city title as an IHM fourth-grader. On the highschool level, he hit a half-court shot as a garbage-time sub in a losing effort against Taft as a sophomore, but believes better memories lie ahead. Heading in to the second half of the basketball season, he’s learned a few lessons from McNick’s three losses. “When things get tough you have to keep your composure,” he said. “If I’m not in control,

Redskins win King of Hill By Mark D. Motz mmotz@communitypress.com

MT. WASHINGTON — Friar

Tuck would be proud. Not only did several members of the Anderson High School wrestling team imitate his signature tonsure for the 35th annual King of the Hill meet, they also took their sixth consecutive crown in the neighborhood rivalry Jan. 15. OK, truth be told, Redskin wrestlers were more interested in celebrating assistant coach Tim Allen than fictional friars. Allen remains the only coach to win King of the Hill titles at Anderson, McNicholas and Turpin. His androgenic alopecia provided the inspiration for the squad – who normally rock Mohawks for the King of the Hill – to try a different haircut in 2014. While the look might have been bad – check that, the look was bad - the resultant wrestling was not. Anderson took 10 of the 13 contested weight classes on its way to a 60-12 win over Turpin

and a 63-9 victory over host McNick. The Spartans beat McNick 45-12 to take second place. “It doesn’t get old,” head coach Luke Cripe said of winning six in a row. “We’ve got a good group of kids who are working really hard. We were in a few situations that could have gone either way tonight and our guys found a way to win. “I have to credit our coaches there. We have an incredible staff and they do a great job getting us ready for every meet, but especially this one. “Our kids know about the history of the King of the Hill. We make a point of letting them know about that. There aren’t many events like this that have lasted as long as this one. We’re proud of how well See WRESTLE, Page A5

Why isn’t dance in Anderson Twp.?

The Anderson Parks popular Daddy Daughter Dance is coming up on Feb. 7 and 8. Accordingly, I prepare to answer the frequently asked question associated with this delightful program… why isn’t the Dance in Anderson Township? The short answer is because currently there is no facility in Anderson that can feasibly accommodate this Valentine event. In recent years, the Ballroom at Northern Kentucky University (“NKU”) has been the closest, nicest, most affordable, and available facility capable of hosting our 1,200 guests over two nights. The long answer is that Anderson Township needs a recreational facility upgrade. Lacking gym/event space has

been an issue for the Anderson Parks since we started our first youth sports program in 1983 with thirty girls in a Ken basketball Kushner COMMUNITY PRESS league. We have GUEST COLUMNIST since grown to offer decades of basketball and volleyball for girls and boys; summer camps; events including Santa’s Workshop, Mother Son Dance, Jr. High Park Parties; adult leagues and classes; and much more, seven days a week. We’ve always made the best of what we’ve had to work with

and we are proud of our resourcefulness. We are grateful for our community partners who enable us to function by renting us their facilities, including: the Forest Hills School District; Beech Acres Parenting Center; Anderson Senior Center; and area churches. The Anderson Township Park District is working on a plan to add a recreation facility in Anderson. We are talking just the basics: multiuse court/ event space and a walking trail, bringing indoors the best of what we do outdoors. No pools, no fitness equipment, just what we know we need from our 10 years of experience leasing the RecPlex and nearly 40 years of being in the active recreation business.

Why do you upgrade a community? To keep it relevant. So people will choose Anderson Township over other communities to buy a home or locate their business. Adults want programs and leagues, too, and today’s seniors are more active far later into life than ever before. It’s time to take our community’s facilities lid off so our programming can grow to serve the year-round recreational needs of residents of all ages. Clean, neat, and safe recreation facilities add value to a community. The economic impact our Daddy Daughter Dance has on the area is extensive, even when held at NKU. Area florists, shoe stores, restaurants, and salons con-

Thanks to all of those who helped us in our time of need I would like to express my gratitude to all the kind and empathetic people that offered their help in our time of need. Thank you for your support. Your prayers made a difference. I truly believe that they saved Victor a lot of suffering. (After some uncertainty, Dr. Jackoboff decided that a facial graft is not needed). Your warm, caring, uplifting words of encouragement made a difference. They gave me strength when I needed it most. Your generosity made a difference. Your practical help will go a long way in helping us

to get back on our feet. Your love made a difference. You all were pulling up for us. I felt that my pain was shared with many and therefore it did not cut so deeply. I’ve lived in several countries and in many places but I never felt more at home than here in Cincinnati... You, the people that embraced us and stood by us in our days of trials, the people that give us their help and their love when I needed them most, make Cincinnati my home. As they say - “Your home is where your heart is.” My heart is and will always be here in

firm our event date each year so they are prepared for the frenzy for patent leathers, tights, dry cleaning, boutonnieres and corsages, hair and nail services, dresses, dinner, and ice cream. Our vision is to have the indoor space to run more leagues and programs for our residents and to one day hold our Daddy Daughter Dance in Anderson Township. Until then, Northern Kentucky will likely continue to be the home of this event tradition, a highlight of the year for many area dads and daughters, including my daughter and me. Ken Kushner is executive director of the Anderson Township Park District.

CH@TROOM Last week’s question Do you think school officials made the right decision recently by canceling classes because of cold temperature? Why or why not?

“Yes, I work in a school district that has cut busing so students would have to walk two miles to school. Those same students are often underdressed without proper coats, hats, or gloves. Two days without school for safety is not that awful.” K.S.

“I have every confidence in CPS to make the right call. There are so many moving parts in that decision it is wrong to second guess. I know I didn’t want to be out in that dangerously cold weather.” Terry Garvin

“Yes. Some children ride the school bus or walk to school, and it was so cold that within 15 minutes there was a chance for frostbite. Not worth risking injury to have our little ones outside when it is that cold. “Also, older children often are underdressed for the weather, and some may not even have appropriate coats, hats or gloves. I was happy to see that even the universities kept the students inside on those days.” D.P.

“As a school teacher, I hate having snow days because it really messes up what I have

planned to teach any given week. “However, with our overly paternalistic society in which kids are rarely never made to deal with any personal challenges not on the athletic field, it seemed pretty ridiculous to cancel school because of the polar vortex driving wind chill below zero for two days. “I know there are students who have to wait outside for the bus, walk to school, or walk across big campuses – and this may lead to frostbite; and schools also had problems with burst pipes and boilers not coming on to heat buildings. “It ends up a judgment call; in that case, the school authorities err on the side of caution for students’ perceived safety; and they always will, so they don’t get sued.” TRog

“I don't think kids today are as tough as kids in the old days so I see why they closed the schools.

“Personally I have a granddaughter in the third grade and I am glad she wasn't out in the this weather. If they miss too many days these days will be added to the end of the year so it is really no big deal.” Dave D.

“Yes, this was the right decision. Most parents, myself included, longed to see the end of Christmas break as the kids were starting to bounce off the walls at home. However, we were approaching record lows. “If frostbite or worse were to occur as kids waited for buses school administrators would have had a heavy burden to shoulder. Make the days up when the weather is better kids first!!” T.B.

“This time I agree with what they did for the sake of the kids. I know there will be a lot of people that will say they had to walk to school in zero degree or less temps., but even back in the ’50s, ’60s, and ’70s there were schools cancelations. “I'm sure that when the winters of 1977 and 1978 hit their little butts were warm at home because everything closed down. Now don't lie, even the expressways were shut down. “Oh yes, more than 10,000 people claimed that they walked on the Ohio River and more than 100,000 claims that they attended the great 'Freezer Bowl' in a stadium that held

50,000 plus. “Give the kids and teachers a day off for the adverse weather as I'm sure it will not make a big change in the students grade, but I'm sure the teachers will want their pay plus the extra days for the make-up days, if they occur. “My only gripe is – where were the kids when the snow fell and neighbors needed their driveways and walks shoveled. Oh yes, I forgot, our parents bought us an iPad, iPhone, etc. for Christmas so we can sit on our butts and talk to our friends in the warmth of a home by the fireplace.” D.J.

“It was a great idea! Not for only the students, but for the opening and closing doors on school buildings stressing the heating system, less wear and tear on school buses, personal vehicles, and not to mention road conditions.” O.H.R.

“As a 37-year-old I don't think I should be saying back when we were kids...but we did not get school called off because it was cold. (And we went to school during the last -30 freeze out.) Or tomorrow morning it MIGHT snow let's call school at 4 p.m. the day before...you went to school every single day. “We also did not have a minivan caravan at the end of every street to stay warm. You learned to dress appropriately

for weather and if you stayed home you may have missed a test, things didn't change because of the weather. These kids and people making the decisions need to toughen up.” Angie Nordheim

“This wasn't just 'cold temperature' that arrived in the Tristate, it was severely dangerous for any warm-blooded being to be exposed for even a few minutes. “Having been in the education business for over 30 years, I have witnessed firsthand the countless times large numbers of students arrive to school in the middle of winter not properly dressed for the weather. “The fault of the parents? Sometimes, but children, no matter the age, will wear what they like, what is in fashion, and not what they need to keep from experiencing severe cold and possibly frostbite. Often, those winter hats, coats and gloves will find their way to a backpack, as soon as the parents turn away. “Not everybody can afford to drive their kids to school, not every child has warm enough clothing, so every effort must be made to keep them safe. The schools made the correct decision to close the schools, and surely would have faced lawsuits had any child come to harm because of the inclement weather.”

Stepping Stones expands programs S

tepping Stones will expand its programs for adults with disabilities in the new year as part of the merger of United Cerebral Palsy of Greater Cincinnati with Stepping Stones. The new programming will include computer technology, art programs including painting, weaving and photography, and expanded community exploration outings where adults with disabilities can interact in the community. The expansion is the result of combining resources of both agencies, said Stepping Stones Manager of Adult Services Amanda Kay, of Withamsville. The larger Stepping Stones now has three program locations: Indian Hill, Batavia and the newly renovated United Cerebral Palsy site in Norwood. Stepping Stones and United Cerebral Palsy are both United Way partner agencies and merged in November, recognizing their common mission to serve individuals with a wide range of disabilities. Stepping Stones continues to serve children, teens and adults in day and overnight camps, respites and educational programs at the Indian Hill and Batavia sites. In January, the adult day programs at Indian Hill will move to the Norwood site, where United Cerebral Palsy has conducted a similar program. “This is an exciting move,” said Kay. “The new building is specifically designed for the type of programs we offer. We now have an art studio with lots of natural light and color and space. “We have 14 computer sta-

tions with easy vision keyboards and special adaptations that can adjust the desk height and move or tilt keyboards and screens,” said Kay. The new building also has a kitchen designed for people with mobility challenges and large accessible individual restrooms with special lifts to help people who use wheelchairs or have mobility challenges. In the expanded Adult Services Program, participants can choose from five interest areas: Computer Technology, Art, Continuing Knowledge; Recreation and Community Outings. All individuals participate in Health and Wellness, which includes exercise and nutrition, health education with community health professionals, safety and personal responsibility. Stepping Stones will continue its Adult Services program at the Batavia site. Participants of both programs will have access to the Norwood facility’s amenities. Adult programs run 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday and are designed to help adults with disabilities build confidence and independence, improve health and fitness, and recognize and celebrate their abilities, said Kay. “Many people go to workshops. We want to be an alternative to a workshop. The fun place, offering recreation and social activities,” Kay said. Some participants come five days a week. Others may split the week between Stepping Stones and a workshop or other activity. “When people come here, I see them light up socially. We

have a laid-back pace that invites people to participate in fun programs,” said Kay. “People who otherwise might feel shy or reserved feel comfortable making relationships. They find their way to fit in.” A key component of every activity is choice. The art program is a dramatic example. “Art is not only a way to communicate and express your feelings,” said Art Program Coordinator Katie Brenner of

Northside. “The whole process is making decisions and choices – what color to use? What do I want on this side? Is it finished? They are in control. So many of the people we serve rely on a lot of other people to do things for them. Here they can make their own decisions,” said Brenner. Some art activities will result in a finished piece, others are about the art experience. “We might put paint in a

salad spinner and see what happens. We’ve taken Matchbox cars and driven them through the paint to create patterns.” Every activity in the Adult Services program expands experience, which builds confidence and independence, said Kay. For more information, visit www.steppingstonesohio.org or contact Amanda Kay, 2214606.

Rita shares updated goetta recipe using a slow cooker A couple of weeks ago, Linda Vaccariello of Cincinnati Magazine called and asked if I would share some tips on making goetta for an article she was writing. I told her I had just made a batch since I wanted to share my latest recipe with you. Goetta, as many of you know, is a Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky specialty. Goetta has Germanic origins, but most people who live in Germany have never heard of it. Inge, my German daughter-in-law who grew up in Germany, said she didn’t have a clue until she moved to Cincinnati. Yes, it’s definitely a Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky “thing.” A possibility about the name is that it comes from the German word “gote” or “gotte,” which means peeled grain. The word became Americanized to mean “goetta,” since the ingredient you cannot do without for authentic goetta is pinhead oats (also called steel-cut oats). Dorsel’s and Bob’s Red Mill are common brands. Goetta is a “hand-medown” recipe and each family’s is a bit different. It’s a ritual in my family and I even use my mother-in-law Clara’s special long-handled spoon that she inherited from her mother. Jon Peters, a Western Hills reader, makes his father-in-law Bill Sanders’ recipe. “I even use his pan and really enjoyed mak-

ing it this year. There’s something special about using a family recipe and makRita ing a big Heikenfeld batch that RITA’S KITCHEN you’re going to share with family and friends,” he told me. Jon and Ellen’s kids get to help, as well. Jon calls his loaves of goetta “bricks,” and his family’s recipe is on my blog.

Rita’s goetta

I’ve been making my mother-in-law Clara’s goetta for years with pork shoulder, just as she made it when they slaughtered hogs in autumn. I used to cook goetta from start to finish on top of the stove, but my sister-in-law, Claire Yannetti, gave me this tip: Cook meat and veggies on top of the stove and cook oats in the slow cooker. Much easier! Stovetop cooking requires frequent stirring and careful watching so oats don’t stick. Here’s my latest and, I think, best version.

Rita’s latest goetta recipe features oats cooked in a slow cooker.THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD needed 5 cups pinhead oats

Put meat, onions, celery, bay, salt and pepper in large stockpot. Cover meat with water by about an inch or so. Bring to a boil, cover, lower to a simmer and cook until meat falls from bone, 3 hours or so. Add water if necessary to keep meat just under liquid. Remove meat and let cool before chopping finely. Save liquid. (You could also cook meat and veggies in slow cooker and you probably won’t need to add more water). Spray a 6-7 quart slow

3 pounds fresh pork shoulder, bone-in if possible, cut in half to fit pan 3 cups each: chopped onions and celery (include celery leaves) 4 dried bay leaves 2 tablespoons salt, or more to taste 1 tablespoon black pepper, or more to taste 8-10 cups water or more if

cooker and turn on high. Put liquid in and add oats, stirring to blend. Put lid on and cook two hours or so, stirring occasionally, until oats are thoroughly cooked and tender, and mixture is very thick. If necessary, add more water as oats cook, but be careful. The mixture, when cooked, should be thick enough for a spoon to stand up in without falling over and be difficult to stir. Add meat and continue to cook, covered, for about 45 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add more salt and pepper if you want – don’t be shy about adding
