July Fourth parade set to start earlier By Lisa Wakeland lwakeland@communitypress.com

Those planning to watch the Anderson Township Independence Day parade will have to find a spot along Beechmont Avenue a little earlier this year. The annual parade begins at 10 a.m. Thursday, July 4, and more than 100 participants will head from the township’s operations center, 7954 Beechmont Ave., to Anderson Towne Center, 7500 Beechmont Ave. Parade Committee Chairwoman Beth Charlton said they moved up the starting time because of the hot weather in the past couple years and to leave more time for the post-parade festivities. “We invite everyone to come out, and the parade has something for everyone from bagpipe players to the Shriners in their little cars to neighborhood groups and floats,” she said. “When the parade ends the fun begins at Anderson Towne Center. There are all sorts of activities for all ages.” The new parade start time

means the entertainment, which includes music by Robin Lacy & DeZydeco and the classic car show, can also start earlier and leave time for other holiday plans. Businesses in Anderson Towne Center will have games, giveaways and a variety of activities, said Assistant Township Administrator Steve Sievers, who helps coordinate the annual July 4 parade. The parade will transition to the other festivities, and Sievers said they “hope it’s one continuous event.” The Parade Committee will award five prizes – best neighborhood, best business, best

float, best patriotic display and most spirited – at Anderson Towne Center. There is also a photo contest and spectators can submit pictures of the parade. One winner, whose photo best represents the “Hometown Pride” theme, will receive a $50 Kroger gift card and have his/her photo displayed as a poster during Greater Anderson Days. Charlton said they’re expecting between 8,000 and 10,000 spectators to line up along both sides of Beechmont Avenue for the parade. “It’s a great community event and it’s the one time of the year in Anderson Township that we really bring the community together,” she said. “It’s a time to be patriotic and be with family and friends. ‘Hometown Pride’ is about being proud of your community and your country.” Beechmont Avenue will be closed between Nagel and Five Mile roads from 9:30-11:30 a.m for the parade, and a detour will be in place.

nurse. “It gives them a chance to experience living history. The re-enactors do a wonderful job sharing their part of American history that would probably never be taught in schools.” The event is similar to American Heritage Days, which was previously presented by the Daughters of the American Revolution at the historic Waldschmidt Homestead in Camp Dennison. Each of the re-enactors will be in the Post’s main hall sharing stories and information about his/her time period. Visitors can come to the program and take a walk through history from the late 1700s through more modern times. “You get so much more when you can come and see something like this,” said Sheila Kendall, one of the re-enactors who portrays a Shawnee woman named Three Feathers. “We all come from different organizations, but we come together for this.

tory you can’t miss.” Gerry Hounchell, who portrays early Pennsylvania gunsmith/soldier

Jacob Messerschmidt, said he tries to teach children and adults about the U.S. Constitution and

how it relates to the where the country is today. “It’s not just the speeches and the talks, but the military sacrifices that were made to bring about this great nation,” he said. Throughout the event there will be entertainment and dulcimer music, as well as a concession stand. Neighboring historic properties in Anderson Township like the Miller-Leuser Log House and the Greenfield Plant Farm stone house also will be open for tours. John Cimarosti, a reenactor who shares stories about the Lewis and Clark expedition, said this is great way to get more insight into local and national history. “For the general public ... it gives them a better idea and an opportunity to learn about the different time periods and how all the history in this area came into play,” he said. “It also gives them a chance to ask questions and learn more than just reading (about it) from a book.”

ton County Veteran’s Day parade. “The Color Guard is a very important part of this,” said Fallis Wilkerson, who is a trustee and drill squad member of the Post. Wilkerson said he hopes the parade will generate interest beyond Legion Post 484. “We want participation from out-

side the legion family,” he said. Glenn Johnson, Americanism chairman and drill sergeant for the Post agreed. “We hope to build the viewing crowd and make it part of (a) family tradition,” he said. Johnson said participants are welcome and should call 752-6216 if they would like to join the

parade. Brats and metts will be served at the Post following the parade. Johnson said the holiday has special meaning for him. “I love the hoopla,” he said. “It’s the birthday of the nation. “At this time we need to value freedom.” For information, call 231-7351.

John Cimarosti, left, as John Coulcer with the Lewis and Clark expedition, Sheila Kendall, as a Shawnee woman named Three Feathers, and Gerry Hounchell, as American Revolution-era soldier Jacob Messerschmidt are all part of “A Legion of American History” on July 6 at Post 318 in Anderson Township.

Council wants to make gateway more inviting By Forrest Sellers fsellers@communitypress.com

MT.

WASHINGTON

Council wants to tackle landscaping issues by the Mt. Washington welcome sign. Mt. Washington Community Council Board President Courtney Vonderhaar said lack of maintenance around the sign, which is located on Beechmont Avenue near the business district, has been a problem. “(It is) the entrance to our community,” said Vonderhaar. “(We) want to

make sure it looks good.” In recent months the area has been overgrown with weeds from lack of upkeep. Bob Wetterer with the Mt. Washington Community Urban Redevelopment Corp. said complaints have been received about the site. He said volunteers are needed for landscaping work and weeding. Wetterer said volunteer work on the site would hopefully start before Independence Day. Mt. Washington Community Council member

George Lehocky and his wife, Barbara, as well as several other volunteers have already begun trying to clear the site of unnecessary growth. Lehocky said maintaining the area around the sign is important for “curb appeal.” Some landscaping options being considered are reducing the size of the planting area in front of the sign and replacing it with grass and moving some of the tall grass in front of the sign to the rear for better visibility of the sign.

Volunteers are needed to removed weeds, replant some of the perennials and clear out some of the excess mulch. For information or to help, call 231-0847 or 2323998. The Mt. Washington Community Council said the area by the Mt. Washington welcome sign is in need of maintenance. In recent months it has been overgrown with weeds.

MS Society scholarship recipient named The Ohio Valley Chapter of the National MS Society recently named Anderson High School senior Tori Lentz as this year’s recipient of its annual scholarship program. Lentz intends to apply the $1,000 scholarship while studying journalism at the University of Cincinnati. The program helps students affected by multiple sclerosis pursue a college or technical school education. It is open to

high school seniors who live with MS or have a parent who does; or anybody living with MS who has not yet been to a post-secondary school. Lentz Applications are evaluated on financial need, academic record, leadership and volunteer activities, a statement of educational and career

goals, and letters of recommendation. “My mother was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in March of 2001. My grandmother also has MS.,” said Lentz. “During the course of her MS (my mother) has taken (disease modifying drugs) Betaseron, Copaxone, and Rebif. She is currently in remission from her remitting-relapsing MS, but continues to take Avonex once a week.” In addition to caregiver re-

sponsibility and emotional toll, MS can have a substantial financial impact on a family. The direct and indirect costs of MS, including lost wages – even for those with health insurance – are estimated at more than $70,000 annually per household. This makes funding a college education that much more difficult. “For the Lentz family and the hundreds of thousands diagnosed with MS across the country, there are very few known

sources of scholarship assistance specially targeted for these families,” said Ohio Valley Chapter President, Kim Deaton. “MS shouldn’t stand in the way of an education, and we are hopeful this program will give families some relief.” Information about scholarships for 2014-15 will be available on the National MS Society Web site on October 1st. For more information, call 1-800-344-4867.

NOT JUST A NUMBER

Many Nagel Midlle School teachers can be seen on Fridays wearing jerseys, which include their name and the number from the 40 Developmental Assets that means the most to them. For example, one teacher chose No. 40 Positive View of Personal Future - Young person is optimistic about his or her personal future. Recently she read a tweet that stated adults often report an event in their life before the age of 16 is the No. 1 factor in why they chose their career.

Wilson Elementary focuses on becoming ‘One’ Similar to a game of musical chairs, Wilson Elementary School students recently found themselves moving from their usual homerooms to a new room assignment for the day. On Wilson Way Day, students from grades K-6 sat side-byside in their new but temporary room assignments for the day’s task - asset building. For each of the 40-Developmental Assets there was a group of students led by a teacher exploring Asset No. 15, positive peer influence. The morning session centered on the book “One” by Katheryn Otoshi. The book provides a lesson on bullying and the power of one person to make a difference. The afternoon session of-

fered a twist on the assets as 40 individuals from the Forest Hills school district and surrounding community gave of their time to talk to students about their “SPARK” in life. The SPARKS, or passions, shared with students covered a spectrum of interests including: baking, dancing, singing, beading, scrapbooking, woodworking, exercising and more. The day was a success, according to principal Ann Roberts. “The students seemed to enjoy the SPARKS activities and it is our hope to plant seeds of interest for their future hobbies and occupations,” she said. “The Asset activity gave everyone in the school the same language about that it only

takes one person to support others in need. It is how we take care of others and our world.” Wilson parent Trisha Pimenidis was one of the presenters for the day. She said that she was excited when Roberts asked if she would help with the day. “I had kind of a rough start in life and had I not found my SPARK, which was dancing and performing, I know that my life would be so different today,” she added. “Being a part of the SPARKS activities was amazing because I know that every student was touched,” she said. “Even if they didn’t find their SPARK, they talked with someone who did and that will make all the difference.”

ANDERSON TWP. — To his everlasting credit, he never laughed at the old guy struggling to clamber over a fence. Never whipped out a cell phone and tagged a photo to Facebook or posted an embarrassing video on YouTube. In fact, when the guy finally cleared the fence, dropped to the ground and slipped to his rump on the landing, Turpin High School’s Connor Jansen was there with a helping hand and a quick, legitimately concerned, “Are you OK?” Such kindness never came into play as readers voted the Spartan quarterback Forest Hills Journal 2013 Sportsman of the Year. The readers’ choice, in fact, directly led to this behind-the-scenes example of Jansen being a good sport. Let’s set the stage. Jansen comes off the field at Kings after practice for the annual East-West all-star football game. He meets a reporter who wants to interview and photograph him for his Sportsman profile. They retreat to the locker room under the bleachers, emerging maybe half an hour later only to find the gates to the exit chained and padlocked shut. No sweat for a varsity athlete used to quick escapes. Here’s a kid, after all, who led his team to a perfect 10-0 regular season and earned first team allcity honors while throwing for a leaguebest 1,339 yards and 15 touchdowns in the fall. To say nothing of his 709 rushing yard and 14 more TDs. A little more problematic for a 40-something writer more used to detailing said escapes than participating in them. “I tried to go through my high school career trying to do the right thing,” Jansen said. “I earned people’s respect by how I treated my friends, my teammates, my teachers, my coaches.” And newly met reporters, it turns out. “I was never flashy about it,” he said. “I just went and did my work. (Being quarterback) is definitely challenging at times. I’m not somebody who’s necessarily comfortable in the spotlight. “Football is the biggest team sport there is. We needed the defense to give us the ball. I needed the receivers to make the catches. I need the runners to set up the passes. And we all needed the offensive line or else we couldn’t have done anything. You have to work together.” Bob and Cindy Jansen’s youngest child - Connor followed sister Katie, 25, and brother Zach, 22 - began playing football in third grade. He played catcher for the Spartan baseball program as a freshman and sophomore, ran sprints on the track team as a junior and took up lacrosse as a senior, playing midfield.

ANDERSON TWP. — Bursts of laughter break the stillness of the otherwise quiet and empty cavern housing the Turpin High School swimming pool. They belong to Morgan Contino, the 2013 Forest Hills Journal Sportswoman of the Year; they light her up her like the Christmas bulbs she strings all over her car during the holidays. “I laugh a lot,” she said. “My nickname is Gigs, which is short for Giggles.” It could also stand for gigawatt smile, which the recent graduate flashes constantly. Which is not to say she doesn’t have a serious side. According to her Sportswoman ballot, “The senior swimmer and volleyball player has taken the opportunities afforded to her in athletics and the classroom and parlayed them into a college scholarship. She has maintained a perfect 4.0 GPA despite the rigorous hours involved in swimming and will attend the University of Kentucky next year on a swimming scholarship.” “I would say for sure it’s worth the sacrifice,” Contino said of the rigorous hours of swimming and studying. “We don’t have ‘social lives’ like other people think of them, but these are friends I’ll have for the rest of my life now. These are the people who know me best. “You need teammates to be successful. All the hours we come in, we go through a lot together. The dedication and time it takes, we push one another.” While she was a four-year Spartan volleyball player - at 5-foot-11 she played right-side hitter in the fall - Contino said people voted for her because of “my success in swimming and my enthusiasm for the team and for Turpin. Just my spirit. I always led the cheers and had the megaphone. I just wanted the team to do well all the time.” She comes by her passion for swimming honestly. Mom, Rene Contino, is the Spartans head swimming coach. “The number of times I’ve made it down here to the pool, I can’t even count,” Morgan said. “I’ve been coming here ever since I was little.” Her love for the water isn’t limited to competitive swimming. She works at the Turpin Hills Swim Club as a lifeguard and enjoys boating, tubing and wake-boarding on the Ohio River. Her height often has people asking if she plays basketball. She comes by that honestly, as dad, Adam, stands 6-foot-7. Contino has a younger sister, Taylor, who will be a Turpin freshman in the fall. “She swims and does dance,” Morgan

THE JANSEN FILE Turpin High School’s Connor Jansen is the Forest Hills Journal’s 2013 Sportsman of the Year. Here are a few of his favorite things. Movie - The Hangover Professional athlete - Robert Griffin III Hero - Russell Wilson (“He gives me hope for short quarterbacks in the NFL.”) Song - “Long, Cool Woman in a Black Dress” by The Hollies Book - The Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling School subject - U.S. history Dessert - Dairy Queen TV show - The Office U.S. President - Ronald Reagan Place to visit before you die - The Alps Place to be alone - His basement Place to be with friends - Tom’s Holiday - Christmas Slang term - lawlz Amusement park ride - Drop Zone at King’s Island Dream car - Mercedes Pizza topping - Pepperoni Condiment - Ketchup Zoo animal - Monkey High school memory - “Beating Anderson 42-14 my senior year at Anderson.”

Jansen began his football career as a third-grade safety and running back, but moved into the QB position in fifth grade. With the exception of a sophomore year return to the defensive backfield, there he stayed. And there he will stay when he ships out for perennial small-school power Mt. Union College come fall. He plans to study exercise science with an eye toward becoming a chiropractor. Maybe not surprisingly, he’s good at that, too. Jansen was a National Honor Society member and does volunteer work both through the NHS and Crossroads Community Church in Oakley.

said of her sister. “She’s as tall as me already and I hope she doesn’t pass me.” Contino is undecided about her major at UK, but leans toward education or math. “I really want to coach. I figured I could teach in the day and coach after school.” Like mother, like daughter? “She’s obviously a huge influence on me,” Morgan said. “But she’s not really my coach for practice except once a week. We get along pretty well on the pool deck. I think if we did it every day it would be a little different, but we’d find a way to make it work. I’m going to miss her next year.” What she’ll miss about Turpin in general is “the sense of community about the school,” she said. “Everybody has each other’s back.” She and Connor Jansen will be guests of the Cincinnati Reds for their wins.

Forest Hills needs new leadership

Captain Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger III saved 155 lives in 2011 by heroically piloting his powerless jetliner onto the Hudson River. Yet, he writes in “Highest Duty” that from 9/11/2001 to 2009 he “lost 40 percent of my salary” and “lost two-thirds of my pension.” His difficult economic story is similar to that of workers across America and right here in Anderson Township. There’s been no such problem at Forest Hills schools. From 2001 to 2009 “salaries and benefits” payments surged 56 percent. Generous pensions weren’t endangered. Enrollment remained flat.

Since 2009 Forest Hills’ yearly “salary & benefits” payments of around $60 million have flattened. Larry But, that’s Wood misleading. COMMUNITY PRESS Per employee GUEST COLUMNIST costs are up despite much noise about salary freezes and the layoffs of about 80 mostly lower-level, lower-salary workers. 2009’s average employee “salary & benefits” totaled $73,639. Today it’s $77,730. Yes, fewer employees now.

Expungement – clearing your record Our legal system recognizes that people make mistakes. Even criminal convictions should not remain on your record forever if the crime was minor and you have led an otherwise law abiding life. To publicly seal your criminal record, you can apply for an expungement. Ohio’s expungement law changed significantly last September to allow more people to expunge their record. Under the old law only first time offenders were eligible for expungement. The new law considers a person eligible for an expungement if they have either: » one felony conviction; » one or two different misdemeanor convictions, or » one felony conviction and one misdemeanor conviction. Many crimes don’t qualify for expungement. Serious felonies, such as murder and rape, are obviously not eligible. Some violent misdemeanors, like domestic violence, as well as traffic offenses (even speeding convictions) can’t be sealed. A waiting period must occur before applying for expungement: three years for a felony and one year for a misdemeanor. The waiting period begins to run once the offender has been released from jail or probation. Additionally, all fines and restitution from the earlier conviction must have been paid in full and warrants or pending charges must be closed. To apply for expungement you must first file for the process in the same court where the conviction occurred. There is a $50 filing

fee to expunge a criminal conviction. However, the fee can be waived if you are indigent. The judge that heard the Brad original case, Greenberg COMMUNITY PRESS or his/her successor, will GUEST COLUMNIST then consider your filing. The judge will determine whether you are eligible by law. If you are eligible but the prosecutor objects, he will weigh your interest in clearing your record against the government’s interest in maintaining the record of conviction. He has the final discretion to grant or deny the expungement. Many people are surprised that dismissed charges appear on their record. A person may apply to expunge these charges regardless of the reason for their dismissal. There is no waiting period, filing fee or limit to the number of dismissed charges that can be sealed. However, charges dismissed as part of a plea bargain cannot be expunged. Felonies ignored by the grand jury can be sealed after a two-year waiting period. If you are interested in expunging a criminal conviction or a dismissed charge, go to the Hamilton County Clerk of Courts, Room 112 of the Hamilton County Justice Center at 1000 Sycamore St. or call 946-6010 for further information. Judge Brad Greenberg presides in Hamilton County Municipal Court. He is a Loveland resident.

But each, on average, represents $4,100 more in spending! That’s not all. Forest Hills misled voters during the successful spring 2012 levy campaign. It took credit for spending cuts never made. Some administrators, board members, and campaigners, plus widely distributed election materials, boasted “since the 2009 levy failed, we reduced expenses $6.64 million annually.” That was not true! Not even close! According to the school treasurer’s publicly available financial reports filed with the Ohio Department of Education, only in 2012 did spend-

ing drop by even half the amount claimed. Outlays in 2010 and 2011 dropped less than $1.42 million from 2009’s total of $74.38 million. It doesn’t stop there. The 2012 campaign stated further expense cuts would be made even if that levy passed. Instead, Forest Hills upped 2013 spending by nearly $3 million. And as if all this isn’t enough, Forest Hills wanted yet more money in yet another levy this spring. Voters said “no.” Plain facts and arithmetic prove just how untruthful have been the many claims by Forest Hills of “salary

freezes,” “reduced expenses,” and “tough choices made.” Captain Sully and many of us have experienced large pay cuts or furloughs or job losses plus lost or reduced pensions. We have no choice but to accomplish more with less. Forest Hills’ misrepresentations have become too big to ignore. The school needs new leadership that will focus on much more cost-effective spending in ways that actually improve our kids learning experiences.

Larry Wood is an Anderson Township resident who served on the school district’s Business Advisory Committee from 2010 to 2012.

CH@TROOM Last week’s question What is your reaction to the Supreme Court ruling that says police can take your DNA when you are arrested for serious and violent crimes?

NEXT QUESTION Do you think Edward Snowden, a former contractor for the National Security Administration, is a hero or a traitor for leaking classified information about the agency’s system of collecting U.S. citizens’ phone and Internet data. Why or why not?

“Although this may be appealed and reversed later by the Supreme Court, it sounds acceptable to me. The idea, I suppose, is that other crimes might be solved if DNA of an individual can be used to place him/her at a crime scene or be used against the individual as a suspect in these serious and violent crimes. “It is probably another example of the government trying to crack down on terrorism in the long run, not trying to take away rights of individuals; if you accept that the government acts paternalistically in your best interest, it shouldn’t bother you.”

would hope that the police would take my DNA. “At the same time, I would hope that they would be prevented from saving it in a permanent data base if I was exhonorated, and no other crossreferences indicated other serious and criminal culpability.”

“The Supreme Court chalked one up for the good guys for a change. How bout that!! “I say ‘Do the crime, surrender your slime.’” T.J.

“Once again the Supremes got it wrong. The only way that DNA should be allowed to be taken without the consent of the arrested person would be with a warrant from a judge which would be based on the probability that the DNA may be of some use in that particular situation. “What they are now allowing is a wide use of personal property in the search of potential felons. I am not a felon and would not allow my DNA to be taken without a legal wrangle, which obviously I could not win now. “Oh, well, big brother wins again.”

CELEBRATING

50 YEARS

Close to 300 former and current volunteers, staff, participants and friends gathered at Stepping Stones in Indian Hill to celebrate 50 years of providing services to people with disabilities. Founder Minor LeBlond of Indian Hill was the guest of honor, greeting old friends and colleagues. LeBlond and the late Peggy Geier and the late Mary T. Schloss founded Stepping Stones in 1963 as Greater Cincinnati’s first summer camp serving children with any disability. Geier’s daughter, Adelaide (Sis) Geier had cerebral palsy and was the first camper. At the reunion, Sis Geier drew cheers as she addressed the crowd. “This was my mother’s dream” she said. Today Sis Geier, of Oakley, is a volunteer in Stepping Stones’ Adult Services program. “If my mother we here today I think she’d jump up and down,” said Geier.

U.S. Sen. Rob Portman (RTerrace Park) presented a Congressional Record Entry commemorating Stepping Stones’ 50 years of service and innovation and talked about his years as a teen volunteer at Stepping Stones. “I volunteered here. My kids all volunteered here,” said Portman. “Stepping Stones is always on the move, always looking for innovative ways to serve the community better.” Stepping Stones pioneered recreation programs for children and adults with disabilities, developed the region’s first on-site infant stimulation program in 1971, created the region’s first alternative education program for students with severe autism and created unique programs for teens and adults with disabilities. Today Stepping Stones is a United Way partner agency serving close to 1,000 children, teens and adults with disabilities at program sites in Indian

Hill and Batavia. Stepping Stones partners with the Rotary Club of Cincinnati presenting programs at the Rotary’s Camp Allyn in Batavia. Co-chairs for the 50th anniversary reunion were board members Mary McGraw, of Indian Hill, a former summer volunteer; and Joe Link, of Wyoming, a former volunteer and staff member. Staff special events coordinator for the reunion was Theresa Ciampone, of Anderson Township. The reunion was at Stepping Stones’ Indian Hill site. Reunion guests toured a history gallery in the Stepping Stones gym and got a taste of camp activities with pedal boats, fishing, face painting and picnic fare. The 50th summer day camp season for children with disabilities recently opened. Volunteers are welcome throughout the nine-week camp season.

Celebrate summer with tomato appetizer, preserves

I opened my freezer yesterday and had to laugh. Nestled among the organic mango slices, edamame, homemade baby food and hibiscus mint syrup were a giant box of storebought Popsicles in every Rita shade of Heikenfeld the rainbow, three RITA’S KITCHEN Kit Kat candy bars and five Baby Ruths. Well, I guess that’s called balance.

Maggie’s cheesy artichoke and tomato triangles From Maggie Hoerst, who our grandchildren fondly call “Dez.” Maggie brought this to grandson Luke’s birthday party, and everyone kept coming back for seconds and thirds. It was delicious even at room temperature, so would be great appetizer to tote to that Fourth of July picnic. Yes, that holiday will be here before you know it! 16 oz. refrigerated crescent rolls 16 oz. cream cheese, softened Zest of 1 lemon 2 eggs 1 clove garlic, minced 14 oz. can artichoke hearts in water, drained and finely

yellow or red tomatoes (about 2 pounds or so) 4 cups sugar 1 thinly sliced lemon 3 ⁄4 cup water

Rita shares her Aunt Margaret’s recipe for tomato preserves with a touch of lemon. THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD.

chopped 1 cup Parmesan cheese, divided 2 plum tomatoes, sliced 2 tablespoons fresh parsley 1 ⁄2 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Unroll crescent rolls, press the seams to fit 9-inch by 13-inch or jellyroll pan, and press the rolls up the sides just a bit if you can. Bake 10-12 min or until light golden brown. Remove from oven, let cool. Mix cream cheese, zest lemon, eggs, garlic, artichokes and 1⁄2 cup Parmesan cheese. Spread over crust, and then arrange tomato slices over filling. Combine 1⁄2 cup cheese,

parsley and black pepper in small bowl and sprinkle evenly over filling. Bake 25-30 min or until light golden brown and set. Cool 10 minutes, cut into 12 squares and cut each square in half diagonally. Makes about 24 appetizers.

Aunt Margaret’s classic tomato preserves I may have hit upon something unique here. After I published the classic strawberry jam recipe, I received several inquiries about other classic/put-up preserves and jams, so I will be sharing those heirloom recipes as we go into

summer. One request was from Lana, a Florence reader who said “My grandma made tomato preserves with a lemon wedge in every jar. There was no cinnamon, just sugar, lemon and tomatoes. No one seems to have a recipe for it.” Well, guess what, Lana. I do and it’s from my sweet Aunt Margaret, who we call our second mom. Aunt Margaret makes tomato preserves like Lana’s grandmom. Aunt Margaret goes to taste on most things, but I did nail down this recipe with her last year when she gifted me with a jar.

To peel tomatoes: Cut an “x” into the bottom end, plunge into boiling water for a minute or so, then when you see the “x” curling at the edges, take the tomatoes out and, when cool enough to handle, pull the skin off with a knife, using the “x” as a tag. Combine sugar, lemon and water and simmer gently for 10 minutes. Add tomatoes and cook gently until tomatoes become transparent, stirring frequently to prevent sticking. Remove from heat. Cover and let stand 12-18 hours in a cool place. Remove tomatoes and lemon from syrup. Boil syrup 2-3 minutes or longer to thicken. Return tomatoes and lemon to syrup; boil one minute. Remove from heat. Skim foam if

necessary. Ladle hot preserves into hot jars, leaving 1⁄4 inch head space. Wipe rims with clean wet cloth. Adjust caps. Process 20 minutes in boiling water canner. Makes about 3 pints.

Tip from Aunt Margaret’s kitchen

If you like, add 1 tablespoon mixed pickling spices and 1⁄2-inch piece fresh gingerroot tied in cheesecloth or in a tea ball and add with the sugar, lemon and water. Remove after you let the preserves stand in cool place. Or add a piece of cinnamon stick to each jar before sealing. You can use green tomatoes if you like.

privilege to be a part of The Athenaeum of Ohio/ Mount St. Mary’s Seminary Rice of the West’s leadership team,” Rice said. “It is a challenging

time, but one filled with great opportunity as we look to grow physically, spiritually, and philanthropically to fulfill our purpose of providing for the future leaders of the Catholic Church. I am filled with hope and excitement to work collaboratively with the clergy, faculty, staff, and lay

leadership as we look to advance in wisdom, knowledge and grace.” Rice fills the duties of former Athenaeum Advancement Director Jim Jackson. Jackson left the Athenaeum last August to become director of advancement at Summit Country Day School.

At about 6:40 p.m. July 29, 2012, Moore and Godfrey entered Cahall Brothers, Inc., 1845 Ohio Pike in Pierce Township, and stole a John Deere utility vehicle. Neighbors of the business confronted

Two Anderson Township men are serving prison sentences for theft and subsequent chase that lead to the death of two Union Township women. The men were stealing to feed drug addictions, said Clermont County Assistant Prosecutor Kevin Miles.

Moore and Godfrey, suspecting suspicious activity, O’Reilly said. Once they were confronted, Godfrey jumped into the driver’s side of the stolen truck, Moore entered the passenger side and both fled the scene. An alert was issued through Clermont County for the stolen truck. Union Township Police Officer Brian Taylor spotted the truck and pursued, O’Reilly said. The defendants fled at a high rate of speed north on Interstate-275 ultimately exiting onto westbound Ohio 32. The pair ignored all the traffic signals along the way, which culminated in ignoring a red light at Bells Lane, and striking a van driven by Corean Hutcherson and Betty Hines, both of Bells Lane in Union Township, killing the pair instantly. They were coming home from church. Both Godfrey and Moore were captured a short time later, and indicated to law enforcement that a third individual “Mike” was the driver, O’Reilly said. DNA evidence, witnesses at the scene and an ultimate confession by Moore refuted this

claim. The case was handled by Clermont County Assistant Prosecutor Kevin Miles and O’Reilly. This collaborative investigation was conducted by the Ohio State Highway Patrol and the Union Township Police Department. On Feb. 22, Godfrey entered a plea of guilty to two counts of involuntary manslaughter, felonies of the first degree, one count of failure to comply with order or signal of police officer, a felony of the third degree, one count of obstructing justice, a felony of the third degree, and two counts of grand theft of a motor vehicle, felonies of the fourth degree, O’Reilly said. Godfrey was sentenced the same day by Clermont County Court of Common Pleas Judge Thomas R. Herman to prison for 30 years. On March 29, Moore entered pleas of guilty to two counts of involuntary manslaughter, felonies of the first degree, and one count of obstructing justice, a felony of the third degree, O’Reilly said. Moore was sentenced June 3 by Herman to prison for 30.5 years.

Mercy parking project leaders are honored

Nagel Middle School PTA recently honored the leaders behind the Nagel Parking Project with the “Friend of Children” award. The “Friend of Children” award honors a person or group that has shown a special interest in helping children by providing students with exceptional support or an extraordinary experience. Receiving the award were Dr. Stephen Fea-

gins, VP of Medical Affairs at Mercy Health – Anderson Hospital, Nagel math teacher Amanda Hanley, Project Manager David Glover of Champlin Architecture and Construction Project Director Kevin O’Brien of Danis Construction. Earlier this year, leadership of Mercy Health – Anderson Hospital realized they would face a parking problem due to an upcoming hospital expansion project. Feagins

turned to his partners in the Forest Hills Local School District for help. Nagel’s eighth-grade math whizzes, under the guidance of their teacher Amanda Hanley, worked with Feagins, Glover and O’Brien to come up with workable solutions to the dilemma, using traffic flow data, the number of existing and potential parking spots and some creative inspiration from Danis’ design engineers.

The Anderson Area Chamber of Commerce will conduct the second annual Anderson’s Got Talent show 5-7:30 p.m. Friday, July 26; and 5-6 p.m. Saturday, July 27, at Greater Anderson Days. Comedians, singers, dancers, jugglers, gymnasts and performers of all ages can participate. For more details regarding the event and to apply, go online to www.Andersons GotTalent.com.
