Irises, lilies, ornamental grasses, hostas and an assortment of other plants will be on display during the annual Anderson Township Garden Tour. The self-guided tour runs 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday, June 3, and features several gardens around the community. “We have our regulars, master gardeners, elegant yards and new participants this year,” said Sandra Coleman, co-chair of the township’s Betterment and Beautification Committee, which organizes the garden tour. “We want (those attending) to see what we have in our own township and take away ideas for their own gardens.” There are 10 gardens on this year’s tour including newcomer Angela Laake, who said she’s been working on her garden for close to a decade. When the Laakes moved to their Asbury Hills Drive home in 2001, she said there were 15 trees in the yard and only a

small patch of sun. “I started with shade gardening, but you don’t get all the pretty flowers, so we started taking out some of the trees,” she said. “I’m constantly moving things around, and every year I remove more grass and add to the garden.” Her interest in gardening began when she worked for a florist in Silverton during her high school years. It was there she learned more about plants, how to take care of them and was bitten by the gardening bug. Lately, Laake said she’s been adding vegetables and fruits such as blackberries and strawberries to the garden, and there is a special spot in the yard where her children can tend to

their own garden. She also helps with landscaping at Ayer Elementary, which she said gives her another outlet and a place to take transplants from her own garden. “It’s been challenging … but I think gardening is fun and relaxing,” she said. “I hope people will appreciate the work we put into it. Some of the gardens on the tour have acres to work with and this is the average person’s yard. I hope (attendees) get inspiration and realize that you can put your own little oasis on your property.” Coleman said all the gardeners on the tour will be on hand to answer questions, talk more about the plants or explain his or her gardening methods. “They all have so much knowledge and I want them to pass it along to others,” she said. “Everyone should come out and visit these gardens and take away as much as they possibly can. We all need to learn from each other.” Maps, brochures and a list of locations will be available on the township’s website, The tour is free.

MT. WASHINGTON — The community may soon start to see additional sprucing up. During its May meeting, the Mt. Washington Community Council approved forming a groundskeeping committee. It’s beautifying the neighborhood one step at a time rather than just during the Great American Cleanup, said board president Jake Williams. “The purpose is to beautify the downtown (business district),” said Mt.

Paintings are popping up all over Cincinnati By Lisa Wakeland

The Taft Museum is bringing its collection out of the galleries and into area parks, businesses and public places. During “Art For All,” the Taft Museum placed 80 reproductions of its work around Cincinnati and

Northern Kentucky. It’s based on a similar public art exhibit held in Detroit. “We thought it was a great way to celebrate the Taft Museum’s 80th anniversary,” said Tricia Suit, marketing manager for the museum. The museum wanted “Art For All” to cover a broad geographic range, but also wanted to place some of the paintings where the Taft family had an impact. Many of the reproductions are strategically placed, Suit said, with landscapes in parks and portraits where many people gather. The official launch is June 1, but the painting reproductions have been installed at all 80 locations.

There are three paintings in Anderson Township – “Edward Satchwell Fraser Jr.” by Henry Raeburn at Beech Acres Park on Salem Road; “Farmhouses on a High Road” by Jacob Isaacksz at Woodland Mound Park, off Nordyke Road; and “View of a Dutch Town” by Jacob Maris at Riverbend Music Center on Kellogg Avenue. Brian Meyer, recreation supervisor for the Anderson Township Park District, said the Taft Museum approached them about the project and they decided on Beech Acres Park because it’s a very popular location with many summer events. That painting is posted near the shelter and play-

ground, and Meyer said he hopes those visiting the parks enjoy the portrait and that it might change how people view the township parks. “I would hope that they don’t just look at the park as see it as a place just for sports or a playground because we have our art fair

in the fall and many other events,” he said. “I hope they realize the parks offer many opportunities for people, not just a place to play.” Following the launch, Suit said they have events planned throughout the summer. The Taft Museum also will focus on the “Art

for All” project the third Sunday of every month with performers and artists from each region. The reproductions are printed on aluminum and are weatherproofed.

More summer work set for I-275 By Lisa Wakeland

Traffic headaches on Interstate 275 near Anderson Township and northern Kentucky will likely get a little worse this summer. The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet currently is working on a pavement and bridge restoration on both directions of Interstate 275 and Interstate 471, which has resulted in a litany of lane and ramp closures, traffic delays and detours. And now the Ohio Department of Transportation is planning to repair several bridges in Anderson Township this summer. The work includes replacing deck overlays, ap-

proach slabs, parapets and bridge painting, said Liz Lyons, public information specialist for ODOT’s District 8. The $4.3 million project includes the Interstate 275 bridges over Markley Road, Birney Lane and Kel-

logg Avenue, also known as U.S. 52, she said. The expected completion date is July 2013, Lyons said. “What this really means for residents is that the construction back-up for 275 and 471 will start at Five Mile,” Anderson

Township Public Works Director Richard Shelley said. “It’s going to be one year of difficult circumstances and slow moving (traffic). There will only be one lane from here to the river once the project starts.” “The impact on the rest of the township is going to be phenomenal,” he said. “All I can tell you is leave early and be prepared for delays. There’s just no easy way to get around it.” Kellogg and Beechmont avenues, Clough Pike, Five Mile Road and other major arterial roads in Anderson Township will likely feel the effects of the bridge repairs and other road construction, Shelley said.

It’s a yearly tradition that makes a big difference in people’s lives. Mercy Health - Anderson Hospital will soon have several new pieces of equipment thanks to a generous donation from the hospital’s guild. The Guild of Mercy Hospital Anderson presented the $117,000 check during its annual spring luncheon May 23. “Everything the Guild does for our hospital’s mission and our patients is remarkable,” said Gyasi Chisley, the hospital’s site

said the placement of the entrance is one of the compromises that comes with working on an existing building. Krehbiel said he could continue working on moving the entrance and present additional layouts at an upcoming council meeting. While council didn’t vote to approve one layout, Councilman Joe Harten said it’s important council give Roth some additional direction prior to the June 26 council meeting, which will be proceeded by a public informational forum about the project. Both possible layouts of the building came in under the village’s $900,000 budget for the project.

Just before midnight May 18, a one-car accident in Anderson Township killed 43-year-old Brian Eichberg of Cincinnati. The Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office reports that Eichberg was driving westbound on Beechmont Avenue in a 2001 Nissan Xterra. Eichberg then went over the centerline, across the road, and into a large tree. Anderson Township EMS crews transported him to Mercy Anderson, where he was pronounced dead shortly after arriving. The sheriff’s office says alcohol and drugs do not appear to have been a factor in the crash. The department added that Eichb-

NEWTOWN — It’s nearly decision time for Newtown village council, as they prepare to move forward on a redesign for the former fire station. During the May 22 council meeting, Roth Partnership Vice President Dick Krehbiel presented two layouts for the former Little Miami Joint Fire and Rescue District fire station, which will be renovated as a Native American artifacts museum and will serve as village administration offices and council chambers. The basic layout of both schemes consists of the office area located behind council chambers, which will double as the museum. Krehbiel said this will allow village staff to monitor the museum when in use. He said council chambers will feature a raised dais and a screen that can be used during museum or council presentations. The central fire bay doors will serve as a central entrance. The main difference between the two layouts is the position of a set of stairs leading to the upstairs file storage area. Krehbiel said some of the design aspects associ-

Summit welcomes familiar face as principal To a newcomer, the recent change in leadership at Summit Elementary School is likely imperceptible. To those in the know, however, it’s almost as if the mild-mannered Michele Sulfsted seamlessly slipped into a phone booth for a quick-change transformation. Entering the booth as the assistant principal, Sulfsted emerged as The Principal. OK, she’s not leaping buildings in a single bound. Through strong leadership and an open-door policy to communication, she is managing a building of 625 students and 66 staff members. The nearly undetectable change in principals was by no accident. After all, Sulfsted is not exactly a newcomer having served as Summit’s assistant principal for seven years. This year’s sixth-graders were kindergartners when she was named assistant principal. Sulfsted came to Summit with 14 years of classroom experience and has her bachelor’s degree from the University of Cincinnati and master’s in educational administration and principal’s certificate from Miami University in Oxford. The years at Summit have given Sulfsted the opportunity to get to know the students, staff and parent community. It is this experience and the planning with now retired Principal Kathy Marx that allowed her transition to principal to go so smoothly. So, aside from the new title

what has changed for Sulfsted? “Well, my email has tripled,” she laughed. “The bottom line is that I am the final decision on things Crabtree and that’s been a big change. As an assistant people come to you on specific needs; as principal, people are coming to you with all concerns. Also as principal I get to make the Sulfsted decisions about professional development with faculty, which is very exciting.” Another change is Tiffany Crabtree, the new assistant principal. Crabtree comes to Summit with experience as a fifth-grade general education teacher, professional tutor, substitute teacher and instructional assistant. She earned her bachelor’s degree in elementary education from Indiana University and her master’s of educational administration in the fall of 2010 from the University of Indianapolis. “Summit Elementary is an incredible place for all to be learners in a nurturing and challenging environment,” Crabtree said. “From the moment I walked into Summit’s doors, I knew that the students and staff members were a family. I knew that our building’s foundation is to foster learning and creating partnerships with families to continue growing

and evolving. Furthermore, I could easily recognize the true dedication that our staff members have for developing all students’ abilities.” Though the building leadership is new, there are many things that remain as they were prior to the change. For example, the open-door policy remains in place. “I wanted to keep that,” Sulfsted said. “I wanted parents to feel free to contact me.” She is also committed to continuing Summit’s close working relationship with the PTA. Next school year, Sulfsted said that she hopes to further expand parent involvement. To enhance communications, next school year there will be informal meetings - “Sit Downs with Sulfsted.” During these meetings parents will be able to talk candidly with Sulfsted about Summit’s strengths, challenges and ideas on ways to improve communications. Sulfsted’s focus on academics takes into consideration student needs and expectations for today and beyond. “I want to make sure that we are preparing our students to be 21st century learners. I want to provide teachers with the tools, opportunities, and professional development to help children become problem solvers and critical thinkers,” she said. “I want us to use technology to learn in different ways, and access ideas from around the globe. We want to prepare students for all of the changing career opportunities that don’t even exist yet.”

Students asked to ‘name’ Mercy Anderson’s new surgical robot Mercy Health - Anderson Hospital is looking for a name for its $2.4 million daVinci surgical robot simulator and is banking on the creativity of area students to help. Friday, May 25, “robot teams” from Anderson Hospital visited the six elementary schools of the Forest Hills Local School District, Guardian Angels and Immaculate Heart of Mary to talk about the Name the Robot contest and how technology is used in surgery today. The contest is open to students in grades four through six. Every student who submits an idea gets a surgeon kit: Mask, hat, booties, Mercy Health pen, and special letter from the “chief surgeon.”

Ten finalists will be invited for a special VIP surgeon visit at Mercywhere they and their families will be treated to lunch in the cafeteria, Mercy Health scrubs that they can keep, pretend Mercy Health beeper, pen, and go back to test drive the daVinci robot simulator. “This is a great way to help students learn more about health care and hopefully inspire some of our future doctors, nurses, and health care providers,” said Stephen Feagins, MD, vice president of medical affairs at Anderson Hospital. That day a plaque will be unveiled announcing the robot’s name and the student who offered the name will win an iPad. “We are very pleased to be

partnered with Mercy Health Anderson Hospital for this project,” said Megan Stacey, coordinator of elementary education. “From this activity students will learn how technology plays a key role in surgery and overall in medical care today, which supports our 21st century learning efforts. “The partnership also supports the 40 developmental assets. Specifically, this falls under Empowerment - Youth as Resources. This is defined as young people being given useful roles in the community. So this is a very rewarding partnership for our students and the district. I’m eager to see what names the students come up with.”

Anderson leaves impression

By Nick Dudukovich

The Anderson Redskins’ baseball team wasn’t supposed to be playing in the regional semifinals. Despite being ranked 10th in the final city coaches’ poll, Anderson (21-8) limped into the postseason, dropping five of their last seven regular-season games. They weren’t supposed to get this far. Not with teams, such as Oak Hills, St. Xavier and Beavercreek, standing in their way. And although the squad’s season ended at the hands of Moeller and pitcher Brian Burkhart, who tossed a no-hitter en route to the Crusaders’ 3-0 win at the University of Cincinnati May 24, it’s undeniable that the Redskins made a playoff run to remember. Anderson’s a true team — that’s what made them so appealing. Their lineup wasn’t stacked with .400 hitters, or big home-run bats. Statistically, Ben LeMaster

had the best stick. He hit .360 with five homers and 22 RBI. Only three other kids were over .300 (Tanner Brondhaver, .310, 23 RBI; Sean Beebe, .308; and Matt O’Connell, .302) Of the squad’s 14 seniors, no one will be picked during June’s Major League Baseball amateur draft. Nor is anyone heading to baseball powerhouse schools, such as Louisiana State or the University of Florida. Pitcher Bela Perler will hurl for Northern Kentucky University and Nick Mason will pitch for Iowa’s Parkland Community College next season, but for the most part, the Redskins fielded kids who knew their roles and took care of business in between the lines. Anderson simply played the game like it’s supposed to be played. Perler and Mason were one of the most formidable pitching combinations in the city. Offensively, Anderson put runners on base, tried their darndest to move guys into scoring position,

and looked for clutch hitting to bring runs home — a baseball purist’s dream. “…There’s better players out there and better coaches, but…there’s nobody as strong as us,” head coach Chris Newton said. “What they have done the last two years, the senior group is amazing, not only in the baseball aspect, but as kids, learning.” The senior class entered the season as a group who had been dealing with a very grown-up situation. Mitch Sayre, who would have been a senior on the squad, died of cancer during last year’s postseason tournament. The bond shared between the Redskins’ roster and Sayre’s memory helped shape the team’s character. “Our determination comes from Mitch,” Brondhaver said after the Beavercreek game. “He definitely showed us how to work hard in the off-season and get out See BASEBALL, Page A7

he Turpin Spartans’ lacrosse team coasted to a 15-4 win over Mariemont during second-round state tournament action May 23. The Spartans’ efforts were led by goalie Jeff Cripe, who recorded 25 saves during the win. On the attack, Turpin spread its scoring opportunities across the field, as seven dif-

ferent Spartans netted goals. Connor Peck led the scoring parade with four goals, while Thomas Stocker connected on three shots. With the win, Turpin advanced to the Division II state quarterfinals where they played Indian Hill on the road May 26. They lost that game 8-5.

During the June 25 Forest Hills Board of Education meeting, Superintendent Dr. Dallas Jackson is expected to recommend Eric Fry for the position of Turpin athletic director. Fry has 10 years of teaching experience, is currently a physical education teacher at Wilson Elementary School and is the Turpin girls head basketball coach, Jackson said in a news release from the school district. “I'm very excited and proud to be named athletic director at Turpin High School,” Fry said in a news release. “I have been working in my career to one day step into a position like this, and I'm extremely happy to do it in a school district like Forest Hills. Turpin has a great history of academic and athletic success and I plan to continue that success. I'm looking forward to working with all the great athletes and coaches at Turpin.” Jackson said he’s pleased to recommend Fry as Turpin’s AD. “He will bring a dedicated work ethic, the knowledge of our district, knowledge of Turpin and its coaches and the pure desire to be successful in the position,” he said. “After speaking with Eric, it is obvious that he has focused his personal career path on becoming an AD with a variety of targeted experiences that he has accomplished.” Fry will receive his school leadership/administrator license from Xavier University in August 2012. He received his master’s degree in sports administration/management from Xavier and his bachelor’s of science in

Physical Education from Ohio University. Fry’s experiences are extensive and impressive. He has been the physical education teacher at Fry Wilson since 2005. He has been the head varsity girls basketball coach at Turpin since 2010 and was the freshman boys basketball coach the two years prior. He student taught at Ohio University; was a general manager intern for the Cincinnati Reds in Sarasota, Fla.; was junior varsity boys baseball and basketball coach at Bloom-Carroll High School; was an elementary physical education teacher and freshman basketball coach at Logan-Hocking School District; and was a student assistant/basketball camp instructor for Ohio University mens basketball, Athens. His awards are also extensive and include: Ohio University Regional Campus Student Achievement Award; James P. Trepp Memorial Award; Ohio University Student Athlete Award; Ohio University Student Athlete Award; Health and Human Services Student of the year Runner Up; PTA Excellence in Education Award; and 2009 Friend of Children Award. If approved by the Forest Hills Board of Education, Fry would replace Tony Hemmelgarn, who has successfully served as Turpin’s AD for the past 14 years. Mr. Hemmelgarn is leaving to pursue new interests.

Former McNick football mates still partners Friendships forged on the McNicholas High School football field are as strong today as they were 30 years ago. But now former teammates and McNicholas graduates Ken Oaks, 1983; Kerry Byrne, 1983; Mike Zins, 1983; Jeff Montelisciani, 1986, work together to win business and jobs for their company, Total Quali-

ty Logistics (TQL). TQL is proud to support its founders’ high school alma mater with its recent donation to McNicholas High School. TQL’s contribution to “Project Paradise” will help the Cincinnati school realize its dream of building a new outdoor athletic complex and stadium for its students.

Oaks, Byrne, Zins, Carr, and Montelisciani are now TQL’s CEO, Executive Vice President, Chief Financial Officer, Executive Sales Director, and Vice President of Sales, respectively. Their company is the third largest freight brokerage firm in the nation, employing more than 1,800 people in nine states. “We learned on the foot-

ball field that we had to have each other’s back in order be successful,” said Byrne. “Whether our employees are opening up a new office, volunteering time to clean up the highway, or training together for a marathon, they know that they achieve more together. That’s what McNick taught us and we’re honored to continue that lesson at TQL.”

Allison Ridge

Allison Ridge of Anderson will swim for Boston College this fall. Allison swam on the Saint Ursula varsity swim team for all four of her high school years. Even more impressive, she was a state qualifier all four years, earning fifth place in the 400 freestyle relay at state 2011, 14th place in the 200 freestyle at state 2011, and seventh place in the 400-freestyle relay at state 2012. She earned high school All American Status her junior and senior years and

received an All-City Honorable Mention all four years. She also earned a GGCL Honorable Mentionfreshman year and GGCL Second Team sophomore, junior, and senior years. Allison also swims for the Anderson Barracudas, where she has practiced for 12 years. She is a fouryear USA sectional qualifier and three-year YMCA national qualifier. Allison is a member of the National Honor Society. She is also a member of Student Outreach Services.

“We were bad at the end of the (regular season), and we just sat down and had a good meeting and talked about the things we needed to do,” Newton said. “I can say it as much as I want as a coach, but they had to do it, and they did it, you know, to put themselves in a position like this…” And while the Moeller loss wasn’t how the Redskins wanted to end the season, Anderson matched the No. 1 team in the city – pitch-for-pitch – for five in-

nings before the Crusaders put three runs on the board in the sixth. “I’m so proud of the kids,” Newton said. “This was an incredible atmosphere. I mean, I wish every high school could experience something like this…I had chills.”

there and play, and Mitch is just with us all of the time.” That character and determination was on display when the Redskins upset No. 4 ranked St. Xavier in the sectional finals. It was also there when Anderson ended Beavercreek’s 15game winning streak for the team’s first district title since 2002.

Is 401(k) retirement a ticking time bomb? Internal Revenue Code section 401(k) is the only section of the U.S. tax code that the average people can cite. They know it has something, to do with whether or not they can retire with dignity. Or retire at all. The adoption of section 401(k) in 1982 turned out to be one of those big moments that changed everything. 401(k) plan investments are a primary driver of the investment markets. It is the employee retirement benefit that most companies offer. The performances of the plan’s investments are also the reason that many people are pacing the floors at night, worrying if their retirement will get delayed or destroyed. Until 401(k) came along,

pension plans were usually defined benefit plans. A defined benefit pension gives you a set number of dollars for set period of time. It usually pays out over the course of your lifetime after you retire. (Like an immediate annuity does.) With a defined benefit plan, the employer takes responsibility for making sure pension money is safe and properly invested. With the advent of the 401(k), employees with little or no investment experience were required to pick among investment options offered by an employer. Employees were put in the position to fail. Many have. It is up to the employer to pick what investment company

handles the employee’s money. If the employer picks a dog, with few options, the employee is out of luck. Even worse, Dan McNay COMMUNITY PRESS some companies push their GUEST COLUMNIST employees to use 401(k) money to buy stock in the company they work for. If the company goes broke, people lose their jobs and their retirement savings, too. There is a second major problem: Not putting enough money in the 401(k) to begin with. 401(k) plans give people a lot of freedom but my experience in working with injury victims

Electronic monitoring monitored by sheriff’s office Judges in Hamilton County can order electronic monitoring of defendants to help safeguard the community. The Electronic Monitoring Division (EMD) of the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office administers this program. Electronic monitoring units are used to supervise defendants who are out on bond before trial or sentencing or who have been sentenced to home incarceration. The electronic monitor is a metal device worn on the defendant’s ankle. There are two types of units: radio frequency and global positioning (GPS). Radio frequency units connect to a defendant’s landline telephone. The defendant is required to be inside his house unless he is at work, school or other permitted location during set hours. If the defendant leaves his house without permission, an EMD officer is immediately notified. The officer then obtains an arrest warrant for the

defendant. GPS units have more advanced technology and allow the EMD officer to continuously track Judge Brad Greenberg the precise COMMUNITY PRESS location of GUEST COLUMNIST the defendant day and night. Tracking data is collected from global satellites and communicated to the EMD officer in real time. The EMD officer uses GPS units to establish “inclusion zones” and “exclusion zones” for the defendant. Inclusion zones are set up around the defendant’s work or home. Any deviation from a set schedule will cause a direct alert to law enforcement. Exclusion zones are areas established around the home, work or school of the victim. If an exclusion zone is breached, emergency data is

sent directly to the 911 Communication Center for an immediate police response. Because of the lack of jail space in Hamilton County, EMD is a popular tool for judges. In recent months, there was an average of 350 to 400 daily users. The EMD program costs less than incarceration. Housing an inmate in the Hamilton County Justice Center costs $65 per day. EMD equipment is rented from a private vendor for $1.50 per day for each radio frequency unit and $6.50 per day for each GPS unit. Defendants sentenced to EMD are required to pay for the program on a sliding scale up to $50 per month. EMD also benefits defendants who invariably prefer to live at home and maintain their employment rather than jail. Judge Brad Greenberg presides in Hamilton County Municipal Court. He is a Loveland resident.

Foster parenting is really a love story; help a child My foster care story is a love story. But it’s not the kind of love story you expect. It begins with my divorce. In spite of my three beautiful children, I was feeling sorry for myself and began searching for something more. The answer to my prayers found me. A teenage girl from my neighborhood came to me for advice. Weeks later, she approached me, and told me I was very helpful to her. She said, “Miss Maria, you should become a foster mother.” The young lady went on to confess that she herself was a foster child. “What?” I said. “You can’t be; you don’t look like a foster child!” She responded, “That’s because I have a good foster mother.” My young neighbor refused to give up on me. She referred me to her foster mother, who in

turn, told me about Lighthouse Youth Services. The staff at Lighthouse is amazing! They are genuinely Maria Bonds COMMUNITY PRESS friendly, take time to get to GUEST COLUMNIST know you, welcome you with open arms, and value each and every person involved with foster care. I cannot say enough wonderful things about them. They taught and prepared me for what I may face as a foster parent, and are still there to support me every step of the way.

what, each of them experienced love. It is sad to think that not every child out there gets a hug before crawling into bed. I wish everyone had the opportunity to see the transformation of a child, with just a little compassion, patience and love. I have seen children completely changed in a matter of days. All they needed was for someone to teach them what love is. It is then that they learn to love themselves. And it really does work, if you take the time. Love changes people for the better, and I see it in my home every time a kid comes in. And the best part is, Lighthouse foster care makes it possible. After all, the heart of Lighthouse is love.

and lottery winners who get big money is that too much freedom is not a blessing. Freedom without perceived consequences can lead to disastrous decisions. I’ve always encouraged people to put the maximum amount into a 401(k) plan. Few do. Many put in little or nothing at all. Now many are looking at a bleak retirement. Defined benefit plans encouraged people to stay at the same employer. 401(k) plans do not. I’ve watched tons of people change jobs and then blow the 401(k) money before they started their new job. It’s been said that 90 percent of people with a lump sum of money will run through it in

five years or less. The same statistic can hold true for people who receive 401(k) rollovers as it does for lottery winners. When historians study the cause of the 2008 economic meltdown, they will see that the change from defined benefit plans to 401(k) plans in 1982 was a factor. It was one of many shifts where dramatic changes were made in people’s lives and liberties. People didn’t realize just how dramatic until years later. If we are going to keep from running behind, 401(k) is one of those things that we need to fix.

CH@TROOM This week’s question Should applicants suspected of illicit drug use pay for and pass a drug test before receiving welfare benefits?

“Yes, this is a great idea. If they are tested positive, they should then be required to enter a substance abuse program to help them to escape their addiction. “That is a lot more compassionate than what we are doing today, which is enabling their bad habit and all the problems that it causes in their lives, the lives of their loved ones, and in society. “Crime would plummet, since a lot of it is done by people with drug and alcohol problems. Alcohol should also be part of this program.” T.H. “All applicants for welfare benefits, not just those 'suspected' of illicit drug use should be tested. Otherwise the state could be accused of profiling or discrimination. “Most employers today use drug screening of all potential employees. A person applying for welfare is essentially asking for a paycheck from the taxpayers. We, as employers, have a right to deny payment to any person whom we feel is undeserving, or may misuse the funds we provide.” R.W.J. “Such people should absolutely have to pass a drug test before receiving benefits. However, I would concede that the welfare organization should finance the cost of the test. Common sense.” Bill B. “Anyone receiving any type of welfare should have to pass a drug test.” L.A.D.B. “No it has already been declared unconstitutional. It is very expensive and not cost effective. “In states that have tried this the percentage of drug use was no higher than in the typical population and since addiction is considered a disease would the state then have to provide treatment. This is just another Republican stereotype.” K.S. “A BIG FAT YES.”

NEXT QUESTION What was the best summer vacation you ever had (or took)? What made it so special? Every week we ask readers a question they can reply to via e-mail. Send your answers to with Chatroom in the subject line.

“Applicants for almost any kind of job are expected to submit to a drug test, so why not for the job of being on the public dole? Why should we pay to feed someone's drug habit? 'Suspected’ is a sticky word, prone to interpretation. Test everyone who applies and retest periodically.” F.S.D. “I like the general concept, but in our litigious society what lowpaid civil servant is going to accuse a person of being a drug-user when that person has unlimited free legal help waiting with bated breath to sue the deeppocket government?” R.V. “Consider that welfare recipients, by definition, are short on money. Unless someone, presumably someone with know how and authority, has reason to consider the recipient is cheating (using the money received in an illicit manner) the suggestion comes across as mean spirited and unnecessary. “Those tests are expensive. If you suspect someone is cheating the system, check it out. If you find you are right, throw the book at them. Leave the ones who need the help alone. Better yet, help them solve their problems.” F.N. “If the definition of ‘suspected’ is poor and in need of help, absolutely no. If the person has priors, then there might be a legitimate right on the part of the state to test. However, there is no right on the part of the government to charge the potential recipient any fees. This would have to be absorbed by the taxpayer. I don’t think overall the idea of testing would stand a federal court challenge, even with the right wing justices trying to impose a form of restrictive liberty’s on the majority of citizens.” J.Z.

Flavorful fish tacos: It’s in the rub

I can’t tell you how many recipes I’ve had over the years for fish tacos. Some were complicated, some were easy and most were pretty good since I have always used a homemade spice rub. Today I was in a time crunch so I Rita used a Heikenfeld SouthwestRITA’S KITCHEN ern blend from Colonel De Gourmet Herbs & Spices at Findlay Market instead of making my own rub. It was so good that I decided to leave the fish whole and serve it as an entree instead of as a taco. The time saved from making my own rub was happily spent in the garden, pulling weeds from the rows of Swiss chard and red onions.

Master recipe for Tex-Mex fish and tacos Preheat oven to 425

degrees. Fish

2 pounds firm white fish (I used halibut) Olive oil Southwestern seasoning

Brush fish on both sides with olive oil. Sprinkle on both sides with seasoning. Roast 8-10 minutes depending upon thickness of fish, until it flakes with a fork. Don’t overcook. While fish is roasting, make sauce. To serve fish as an entree: Leave whole and serve sauce alongside or drizzled on top. I served mine with a side of potatoes. To make tacos: 8 tortillas (corn or flour), warmed 1 small head Napa cabbage, shredded or favorite greens, shredded

Break cooked fish into pieces and divide among tortillas. Top with cabbage and taco sauce. Serve with avocado wedges. Cathy’s cilantro scallion creamy sauce Cathy, an Eastern Hills

Rita's recipe for Southwestern-seasoned fish can be used by itself or as a component in fish tacos. THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD.

Journal reader, gave me this recipe after I finished teaching a class on easy seafood entrees. “This is delicious on top of fish tacos,” she said. I used cilantro from the herb garden. You can also top the tacos with salsa, guacamole or pico de gallo sauce, if you want. Stir together: ¼ cup thinly sliced scallions/green onions Chopped cilantro to taste: start with 1⁄3 cup 3 tablespoons each sour cream and mayonnaise Grated rind from 1 lime

Lime juice to taste: start with a scant 2 teaspoons and go from there 1 nice-sized clove garlic, minced Salt and pepper to taste Diced tomatoes (optional) Avocado slices to serve alongside (optional)

Boston brown bread I hope this is close to what Northern Kentucky reader John Meier is looking for. It’s adapted from a recipe by Jasper White, the famous New England cook. John loved Busken Bakery’s brown bread


served in their downtown location. John enjoyed it with cream cheese and strawberries. Cooks Illustrated also has a wonderful recipe for Boston brown bread, which is a bit too long to include here. Check out their site for the recipe. To make strawberry (or pineapple) cream cheese, mix softened cream cheese with fresh diced strawberries and sweeten with confectioners sugar, or blend softened cream cheese with drained, crushed pineapple. You can also simply stir strawberry jam into softened cream cheese.

Butter 1½ cups brown-bread flour (see note) 1 teaspoon baking soda ½ teaspoon salt 1 ⁄3 cup dark molasses 1 cup whole milk ½ cup raisins, currants, dried cherries, cranberries, apricots or your favorite dried fruit

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Generously butter a 1-pound coffee can. Combine flour, baking soda and salt. Stir in mo-

lasses and milk. Fold in fruit. Fill coffee can with batter. It should come up only about two-thirds of the way. Cover top with foil and tie with string to make airtight. Place in a deep baking pan, put pan in oven and fill pan with boiling water halfway up the side of coffee can. Steam for two hours, checking water level after one hour. Add more boiling water if needed. Check by sticking a skewer into the bread; it will come out clean when done. Remove string and foil and allow to cool one hour before unmolding. Note: Brown bread flour is a specialty New England flour and can be hard to find. Make your own by combining equal amounts of whole wheat flour, rye flour and cornmeal. Store in freezer.
