More parking for bike path? 13 more spaces for Five Mile Trail to cost $50,000 By Lisa Wakeland

Anderson Township wants to add more parking spaces off Newtown Road for the Five Mile Trail. The township currently leases 10 spaces from Heritage Universalist Unitarian Church, next to the northern end of the trail, for $2,400 per year. Steve Sievers, assistant township administrator and Development Services director, said the township and church are currently negotiating a 20-year parking lease and easement agreement. “The trail is very highly utilized and there is no more room (at the church) for more spaces,” he said. The new parking lot, with water and utility lines, is estimated to cost taxpayers $50,000 and will have 12 regular parking spaces and one handicap space. Sievers said he anticipates the project, which also includes a temporary restroom facility and water fountain, to be complete by the end of 2011. He said both the township and church would look into grants to construct a permanent restroom facility in the future. Public Works Director Richard Shelley said the lot would have permeable pavement to help capture storm water runoff and they have discussed adding a rain garden in the future. The parking lot would be in between the current paved area at Heritage Universalist Unitarian Church and the Five Mile Trail. It would have a separate entrance off Newtown road. Township Trustee Peggy Reis suggested adding a bike rack near the parking lot to accommodate

Superintendent questions plan’s timing By Forrest Sellers

New Forest Hills Local School District Superintendent Dallas Jackson expressed concerns about developing a facilities plan before a strategic plan for the Forest Hills Local School District is in place. “Are we putting the cart before the horse?” Jackson asked during last week’s Facilities Committee meeting. Jackson said he is preparing a strategic plan for the district. “We need to tighten our belts, but at the same time have an educational component,” he said. Jackson said the committee should proceed with its work and provide a recommendation, which could then be incorporated into the strategic plan. Richard Neumann, chairman of the committee, asked committee members how they wanted to proceed. “(We) are trying to build consensus on where we go from here,” he said. Committee members said it is important to present a clear message to the community. They also said other factors such as programs in the district are important. “Facilities alone won’t give kids the best education,” said

committee member Melissa Oakley. Committee member Wayne Rod agreed. “Quality of education is the most important Jackson thing,” said Rod. “We’re talking numbers, (but) what do these plans do to enhance education.” The committee recently presented four potential building con-

figuration options. The possibility of adding temporary modular buildings also was discussed during the meeting, but Neumann most of the committee members seemed reluctant to use modular buildings, seeing this as more of a short-term solution if a future operating levy failed.

Building options The Forest Hills Local School District Facilities Committee is considering four future building configurations. The proposed configurations and estimated levy and bond amounts, presented in March, are: • Maintaining the existing building configuration of six elementary schools, one middle school and two high schools. This would require a 5.71-mill operating levy in May 2011. • A configuration of four elementary schools, one middle school and two high schools. This would involve the construction of one new elementary school as well as additions to the existing buildings and renovation of the high schools. This would require a 9.98-mill combined operating/bond levy in May

2011. • A configuration of four elementary schools, one intermediate school, one middle school and one high school. This would involve the construction of a new elementary school and construction of a new high school. This would require a 7.54-mill combined operating/bond levy in May 2011. • A configuration of four elementary schools, one middle school and one high school. This would involve the construction of one new elementary school, construction of a new high school and additions to some of the existing buildings. This would require a 10.26-mill combined operating/bond levy in May 2011.

Neumann asked if a property tax appraisal would be worth considering. Ray Johnson, director of business operations, said an appraisal had not been done for several years. The committee said an appraisal might be worth considering if it could be done without incurring additional expenses. Another option proposed during the meeting was to proceed with a building plan in phases and concentrate first on Wilson Elementary School and Anderson High School, buildings which the committee said are most in need of repair. The committee said the next step will be to get cost estimates on several of the building options, factoring in additional expenses such as extracurricular activities and programs. The Facilities Committee also plans to have a separate committee, the Business Advisory Committee, review the initial cost estimates for consolidation of the buildings. A joint meeting with the Business Advisory Committee will be 7 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 17, at the administration building, 7550 Forest Road.

The former E-check building at 7036 Main St. in Newtown, a 5-acre site that is expected to replace the village’s current fire station, may also serve as a bike staging area that connects to local bike trails. Freeman will be seeking grants and other funding opportunities to lessen the financial burden on the village for the potential project. Freeman said during the meeting that the Ohio Kentucky Indiana Regional

Council of Governments will soon make $9 million in grants available for projects similar to a bike-staging area in Newtown. “That’s where I think we should focus our attention,� he said. The bike-staging area would likely consist of 15 to 20 parking spaces with access to sidewalks and the bike trails in and around the village. Freeman said other amenities, like restrooms, could make the site more attractive to bike riders. Any potential project at


the new fire station hinges on the Fire District buying the former E-check building at 7036 Main St., which will house a new station and the possible bike staging area. During the meeting, Councilman Mark Kobasuk stated the Fire District has nearly completed its deal to buy the site, at a cost of approximately $750,000. If the deal is agreed upon bonds could be issued in August, bids could be completed in October and construction could start in January.


Here’s a look at other topics of discussion during last night’s Newtown Village Council meeting: • Consultant Allan Freeman, who village council hired to find funding for the potential bike staging area, also agreed to help the Village of Newtown Veterans Association seek out funding for its memorial wall, which will be installed at Moundview Park. • Newtown Police Chief Tom Synan said the village recently received four donated radar guns – two from the state as part of the village’s participation in its “Click it or Ticketâ€? campaign and two from neighboring communities. He said new radar guns typically cost between $3,000 and $5,000 each. • Council voted to approve spending $5,000 on furniture for the house at Moundview Park. The house is now available for rental. • Council voted to approve an ordinance donating a trailer to Turpin High School. The trailer needs many repairs and was going to be disposed of if not for the donation. The Turpin High School band will use the trailer to haul equipment to performances. Kobasuk said the project would likely take about nine months to complete. ADVERTISEMENT

Businesses pan permit process By Lisa Wakeland

Anderson Township, along with the Hamilton County Economic Development Office and the Anderson Area Chamber of Commerce, recently completed a business survey, the first since 2005. Questions ranged from general satisfaction and growth rates to challenges and benefits of having a business in Anderson Township. Bryan Kauffeld, general manager of Ulmer’s Auto Care Center on Salem Road, said he likes having a business in Anderson Township, but the permit requirements can be cumbersome. “One of the biggest challenges are the road blocks put in front of us for any expansion or improvements,” he said. “It’s very difficult to get it done in a timely fashion.” Susan Parker, owner of Susan’s Natural World on

Kauffeld filled out the business survey and said he would like to see the permit process become less difficult. Beechmont Avenue, agreed that the permit process is time-consuming and said signage requirements are also a challenge. Parker said she’d like to have a small sign, such as a sandwich board, near the road announcing daily or weekly specials, but sign

restrictions prohibit that. Parker added that she also would like to see more coordination with the chamber, township and businesses to encourage residents to shop locally. “These last few years have been harder for everyone and as things change we need to keep people shopping in the community,” she said.

“Keeping it local will be good for all of us.” Kauffeld said he would like to see tax incentives and government support to spur economic development in the township. He added that he’d like to see a greater focus on finding other businesses to fill the vacant properties and give a boost the business community.

Mt. Washington seeks funding for streets, businesses By Forrest Sellers

Mt. Washington hopes to continue streetscape enhancements as well as improve business district facades. During a recent meeting the Mt. Washington Community Council approved applying for Neighborhood Business Development Improvement Program funding. Fifty-two Cincinnati neighborhoods are eligible

to compete for the Improvement Program funding. A total of $1 million is available, which would be divided up among the various communities which are chosen to receive funding. Communities typically send in major and minor proposals for funding. Mt. Washington’s minor proposal is for up to $30,000 for a design study for streetscape improvements.

from Campus Lane to Mears Avenue. These improvements would include lighting, benches, trash receptacles, planting containers and other enhancements in the business district. “These are long-term projects,” said Jake Williams, president of the board. Williams said rebuilding a portion of the Mt. Washington Cemetery fence would likely be included in the streetscape plan. The major proposal



would be for funding to help with facade improvements in the business district. This proposal is for $115,000. As part of this proposal, building and business owners who participate would pay half the cost for facade improvements while the city

would pay the other portion. Mark Macomber, president of the Mt. Washington Community Urban Redevelopment Corp., said several businesses have expressed interest in participating if the funding is approved. These include the Frank Design Studio, Anderson Hills Plumbing, Repair and Supplies, Music Makers LLC, Water Tower Fine Wines and several other businesses. Facade improvements would also be made to the police substation, he said. “It’s a good incentive to look at what you have and what you can do,” said Kate Young, owner of Music Makers. Young said her landlord has expressed interest in making facade improvements. “Specifically, we have a curb around the front of the building we would like to remove and then also widen one of our entries,” she said. Young said some brick work repair needs to be done as well. This funding would make these repairs affordable, she said. Macomber said the proposals will need to be submitted in August.

Newtown to buy furniture for park house By Rob Dowdy


Anderson Township resident Harry D’Agostino gets ready to start a race. His red Go-Kart was stolen and his parents are offering a reward for its return.

Theft threatens Go-Kart season for Anderson Twp. boy By Lisa Wakeland

Harry D’Agostino’s racing season almost screeched to a halt when his prized Go-Kart recently was stolen from his Anderson Township home. Harry, 12, said his dad woke him up the next morning to deliver the devastating news. “I was kind of shocked and really sad,” he said. “I just want my Go-Kart back.” Karen D’Agostino, Harry’s mom, said the GoKart, gears and gas can, worth about $5,000, were stolen from the garage, but everything else was untouched. She said she suspects it was kids who knew the GoKart was in the garage. “It’s just so disheartening because we don’t know who took it,” she said. “We know it’s unlikely we’ll find it, but we keep checking on Craigslist and eBay.” Harry, who races competitively for the Ohio Valley Karting Association, said he’d seen flyers for stolen Go-Karts at other race tracks, but didn’t think much of it. “I thought it wouldn’t happen to me because I live in a safe neighborhood,” Harry said. The family lives on a dead-end street in the Sanctuary of Ivy Hills. Harry was first introduced to Go-Kart racing a few years ago and remembers watching Formula One races with his dad, Tony. After a few runs on a practice track, Harry decided he wanted to race competitively.


Harry D’Agostino, 12, proudly displays one of his Go-Kart trophies. His $5,000 GoKart was recently stolen from his Anderson Township home, throwing a wrench in his season. The Go-Kart was an eighth birthday gift and his dad drove him to Indianapolis to pick out parts to customize it. Next year, Tony said his son will move up to a different division and need a new Go-Kart. Until then, fellow racers have offered to loan Harry another Go-Kart until October, when the season ends. Though he’s thankful, Harry said it will be hard

The house at Moundview Park has been ready for rental for more than a month, and now the village will buy furniture for the home to make it more attractive to potential renters. Newtown Village Council recently approved spending $5,000 of taxpayers’ money for furniture, including tables and chairs, for the house at Moundview Park. The house was recently renovated and is available for rental. Mayor Curt Cosby said local business Meridian is scheduled to host an event at the house at the end of August. “Right now, we have no furniture in there at all,” he said. Cosby said he’d like the village to buy $5,000 in furniture using park funds available for the house.

Stinger Dunaway overcomes lost season By Anthony Amorini

Athletically ineligible. The words rang out like a death knell for 2010 Seven Hills graduate Josh Dunaway near the start of his junior year in 2008. Positioned near the top of his class academically, the Anderson Township resident didn’t anticipate any problems when transferring from St. Xavier to Seven Hills following his sophomore year. But trouble arrived just the same. The Ohio High School Athletic Association ruled Dunaway athletically ineligible for the 20082009 season citing a rule used to discourage the stacking of privateschool rosters. Though understandably bitter at first, from chaos came an opportunity and Josh quickly made the best of the hand he was dealt. Dunaway attended every Stinger practice and watched every varsity contest from the bench as a junior alongside Seven Hills head coach Willie Hill despite knowing he would never see a second of playing time. “It was one of the proudest moments I’ve ever had,” Josh’s father, Craig Dunaway, said of his son’s dedication despite the adversity of his junior year. “Here’s a kid who knows he can’t play in games and he still wants to be a part of the team. It showed a lot about his character.” Josh’s positivity and team-oriented mentality landed him the Eastern Hills Journal Sportsman of the Year award in 2010. Readers nominated Sportsman of the Year candidates and determined winners through online voting. “It’s a huge honor and I appreciate all of my teammates and

Hill was quick to chime in on the subject of Josh’s junior season. “Josh showed a lot of maturity to make that decision,” Hill said. “Sitting out a whole year was tough, but he handled it well. “He worked hard, encouraged the guys and did everything he could to get ready for his senior season,” Hill added.

Long before beginning at Seven Hills, he was honing his craft and becoming a sharp-shooter from the outside with daily

practice sessions at home. “From the time he could walk I stuck a basketball in his hands,” Craig joked. “You could tell immediately he had a passion for it. He’d be out there all day shooting, and we’d have to call for him to come get food.” Josh was thankful he spent the long hours learning the in’s and out’s of his shot, he said. “A lot of people don’t see the work you put in behind the scenes but it really does pay off in a big way,” he said. Dunaway soon begins his collegiate career at Massachusetts Institute of Technology with his cumulative GPA of 4.11 and his shooting skill in tow. Josh will need both his brains and athletic ability to succeed in the academically challenging environment at MIT, he said. After majoring in management and minoring in economics at MIT, Josh plans on continuing his education at law school. “I’m really excited for the opportunity. I always knew I wanted to play at the next level and MIT is the perfect place for me to do that,” Josh said. “The school and area have so much to offer.”

High hopes for McNick volleyball By Nick Dudukovich The Archbishop McNicholas High School girls’ volleyball squad has big expectations for this season. The Rockets finished 15-9 last year and made it to the district finals before falling to Tipp City last Gilene year. The team has a lot of confidence because of the number of experienced players returning in 2010, according to coach Denny Murphy. Rohlfs “We’re deep at every position,” Murphy said. “I’ve never been this deep. We could go to JV, but I just don’t need to.”

outside hitter. Season outlook: “We hope to be in the running for the championship of our new league. Our experience must lead us early in the season to give the newcomers time to settle in to their roles. Communication, serving, passing, and team play will be the keys to our success. Our nine-team league should be very evenly matched from top to bottom. I don’t believe anyone is a clearcut favorite and several teams could emerge as contenders for the championship.” Last year’s record: 14 - 10, second place FAVC Buckeye Last year’s tournament results: Defeated Little Miami in four games in the first round, lost to Seton in three

Coach: Kathy Carboy, third year as head coach at Turpin. Her record, 32-15 Returning starters: Seniors Michelle Seibert (defensive specialist) and Katie Steller (middle hitter), sophomores Maddie Kunkel (libero), Emma Bryant and Jen Philpot (outside hitters) Season outlook: With a young group of talented returners, Turpin volleyball hopes to contend for a FAVC championship Last year’s record: 13-11 Last year’s tournament results: Lost in second round of sectional tournament to Lakota East. “We open up with East on Aug. 28 hoping to avenge that loss!”

On offense, senior returning starters Chelsea Rohlfs and junior Stephanie Schmidt will be expected to carry the load. Sophomore Kayla Fritz is also expected to contribute significantly. Rohlfs, who plays outside hitter posted 28 aces during last year’s regular season, while Fritz,

a setter contributed 254 assists and Schmidt added 152 kills. On defense, Megan Gilene will try to fill the shoes of Alli Kirby, who graduated at the end of last school year. Gilene’s 195 digs were second to Kirby’s 339 last season. Murphy, who is in his fifth year

with a 63-36 record, is counting on the aggressive play and leadership of his senior setter to be a factor all year. “Megan plays hard and is becoming more of a vocal leader as we go on,” Murphy said. “If you’re not getting the job done, she’ll let you know.”

A large roster populated by 11 seniors and six talented underclassmen with varsity potential promises for an interesting series of tryouts for Turpin’s girls tennis team. With tryouts beginning Monday, Aug. 9, first-year Lady Spartan head coach Barb O’Brien still had a lot of question marks regarding her starting lineup just before beginning her selection process, she said. O’Brien coached Turpin’s junior varsity team for four years before taking the helm of the varsity program. Only two varsity players return for O’Brien – seniors Katherine Johnson and Mary Allison Geibel – and the senior duo are currently the only two players the new head coach has locked in for starting varsity spots, she said. “There are going to be some tough decisions to make. Tryouts will be very important for us next week,” O’Brien said Sunday, Aug. 8. “We’ll just have to see what happens when we get out there and start playing.” Johnson will likely play at No. 1 singles for Turpin though O’Brien was unsure of the lineup’s order from there. “Having 17 girls to choose from (including 11 seniors) is an interesting situation to deal with,” O’Brien said. In addition to its uncertain lineup, Turpin will also be collectively sharing its new experience in the Fort Ancient Valley Conference East Division. In 2009, Turpin won the

close games in the second round.

McNicholas tennis The McNick Lady Rockets finished at 3-14 overall on the tennis courts in 2010 including a 1-11 in Girls Greater Cincinnati League play. Badin (8-10) captured the 2009 GGCL Grey Central Division title at 2-10 in the conference with McNick taking second in the division. After starting the 2009 season at 0-9, McNick posted a 3-2 record during a fivegame span in the middle of the season before ending its campaign on a three-game losing streak. The McNick girls open the fall season with a road match against Finneytown at 4 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 18, at Brent Elementary. The Lady Rockets host Milford for its home opener at 3:30 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 25, at Lunken Playfield. FAVC Cardinal Division at 50 in the division and 10-2 overall. However, the five-team FAVC Cardinal Division has been replaced with the nineteam FAVC East Division for the 2010 season. “It’s a stable team with (Johnson and Geibel) back but we still have a number of things to figure out,” O’Brien said. “I’m looking forward to having a fun season with the girls.” Turpin opens with a road match against Walnut Hills at 4 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 24, at Triangle Park. The Lady Spartans host its rivals from Anderson for its home opener at 4 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 26.

While the Rockets have a plethora of returning talent, they will be without senior Rebecca Schaller, whose recent back surgery will keep her out for the 2010 campaign. Possibily filling her role in the middle could be Brooke Logan. Logan, a sophomore, had 147 kills during her freshman year. The Girls’ Greater Cincinnati League promises to offer a formidable opponent in the form of Roger Bacon High School, who finished 21-5 last year. “They’ve never been bad,” Murphy said. “If we play hard enough, we’ll be there with them. Murphy believes his squad could be a perennial GGCL Grey Central contender and even has hopes of playing beyond the district finals. “I think we should compete for a (conference title) every year,” Murphy said. “Our expectation this year is to go to the state tournament.”

Anderson girls’ tennis hits the court By Anthony Amorini

Alterations to the Fort Ancient Valley Conference’s divisional structure paired with the graduation of six seniors presents Anderson’s girls’ tennis team with a bit of adversity to start the 2010 campaign. Despite all of the graduations, Anderson still returns four starters from the Lady Redskins’ 12-3 squad from 2009. However, second-year head coach Joe Leytze needs to find new players at both No. 1 singles and No. 1 doubles with a bolstered schedule promising to challenge the girls entering the top spots in the lineup. After spending several seasons playing at No. 1 singles, 2010 graduate Bridget Hochwalt and her 12-2 record at No. 1 singles in 2009 leaves the biggest shoes to fill of the recent graduates. Returning players for Anderson include Kristina Abramovich and Maddy Crawford for singles and Megan Beebe and Corie Osterfeld for doubles. Abramovich and Crawford played at No. 2 and No. 3 singles last year, respectively. Beebe and Osterfeld were teamed up at No. 2 doubles. Abramovich was 6-2 at No. 2 singles in 2009. “We graduated six seniors from last year’s squad but we have quite a few

AHS tennis coach joins Hall of Fame Anderson High School girls’ tennis coach Joe Leytze is about to join an elite group of athletes as one of the newest members of the Cincinnati Tennis Hall of Fame. The induction ceremony takes place Saturday, Aug. 14, at the Lindner Family Tennis Center in Mason – the day of the women’s semifinals and men’s qualifying round of the 2010 Western and Southern Financial Group Masters and Women’s Open. “It’s a great honor; there’s no doubt about that,” Leytze said. Given his own career record and commitment to the game of tennis, his induction into the Cincinnati Tennis Hall of Fame seemed inevitable. Athletic Director Pam Scott said Anderson High School is excited about his induction and thrilled to have him return for his second year of coaching at AHS. “It is quite an honor and says a great deal about your program when you have someone coaching your athletes who has competed at the top of the game at all levels,” Scott said. “He obviously has great skills and knowledge of the game, but he is also able to teach the game in a fashion that is fun for high school athletes.” As a high school student, Leytze played tennis at Oak Hills High School. In his senior year he was named the 1979 Enquirer Player of the Year. He next hit the court at the University of Kentucky players who haved worked hard on their games over the past year and I expect us to be competitive this year,” Leytze said. In addition to the returning girls, a handful of new additions will also be key for Anderson including Jenny Dickhaus, Amanda Foster, CeCe Graff and Paisley Stone. Dickhaus, who played No. 1 singles at the junior varsity level in 2009, will likely compete for a spot playing singles on var-

where he played four years at the collegiate level and competed in the NCAA Tournament. “I found out that I’m the only tennis player from Cincinnati to have played in the Men’s Division I NCAA singles championship in the past 40 years,” he said. After college, Leytze played tennis professionally for three years. He said he enjoyed the experience of traveling the world playing the sport that he loved. After his tour in professional tennis, Leytze returned to Cincinnati to teach tennis and coach teams. He also enjoyed a few victories at local tennis competitions including the Cincinnati Metropolitan Tournament, which he won in 1988 and 1990. After 1990, work temporarily took Leytze away from tennis. Last year he joined Anderson High School as the girls’ tennis coach. And with this most recent round of recognition, he said he may look to further his involvement in teaching/coaching tennis. The induction into the Cincinnati Tennis Hall of Fame will not be his first enshrinement. In 1990 he was inducted into the University of Kentucky’s Tennis Hall of Fame. “I was one of the first four people to be inducted there,” he said. “That was a nice honor. It’s funny, when you’re in your 20s, it’s not as big a deal. When you get older you appreciate these things a little more.”

sity, Leytze said. The rest of the new additions were also JV starters last season. As for the changing FAVC, duplicating its 4-1 conference record and second-place finish in its FAVC Buckeye Division will be a tall order for the Lady Redskins in its newly created FAVC East Division. Anderson moves from the five-team Buckeye Division to the nine-team FAVC East Division for the 2010 tennis season.

“The reorganization of our league has left us with a much tougher league schedule,” Leytze said. “This may make it difficult to match our 12-3 record from 2009.” Anderson opens with a home match against Wilmington at 4 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 19. Following the opener, the Lady Redskins travel to the Cincinnati Country Day Tournament at 2 p.m. Friday, Aug. 20, and 8 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 21.

Kaiser places in wheelchair tennis

Movies, dining, events and more

Emmy Kaiser, a member of the USA Women’s Wheelchair Tennis Team, earned sixth place at the Wheelchair Tennis World Team Cup Championships in Antalya, Turkey. Kaiser trains at the Mercy HealthPlex Anderson tennis center. The 2010 Invacare World Team Cup, the most prestigious wheelchair tennis event, is often referred to as the Davis Cup of wheelchair tennis. A total of almost 300 players from more than 30

nations traveled to Antalya, Turkey from May 3-9, to compete in the 2010 event. Kaiser will be a junior at Thomas More College in Crestview Hills. She trains with Keri Preng, a USPTA P-1 coach and tennis pro at the Mercy HealthPlex. “Because it was my second year on the USA women's team, I was much more comfortable with the situation and coach,” said Kaiser. “I clicked well with USA teammates Dana Mathewson and Hope Lewellyn and coach, Paul Walker, who were on the team last year. Competing in Turkey at this level of competition was not too over-

whelming for me since I had done this before, so I could really concentrate on improving my game.” Preng calls Kaiser an amazing competitor. “She is just now starting to tap into her potential. Getting sixth place and her first top 10 win against JuYeon Park from Korea, who was ranked 8th at the World Team Cup, is such a fantastic accomplishment,” she said. Said Kaiser, “The load I am carrying in college along with the training and traveling for tennis has been difficult, but the experience, the lessons in time management, and the challenge to be my best make it all

worthwhile. My next big goal is to make the 2012 Paralympics in London and stay in the top 20 in the world.” Mercy HealthPlex Anderson and Fairfield Tennis Centers offer six professional courts at each center, nine USPTA-certified professionals and innovative programs for all levels of play.

Kepley takes over St. Xavier golf program By Tony Meale

After winning a state title in 2008 and finishing as state runner-up in 2009, the St. Xavier High School golf team will be without Brian Shircliff, a 1992 Bomber graduate who had coached the team since 1998. The program, however, is in safe hands. Alex Kepley, who served as Shircliff’s assistant the last six years, will assume the head coaching position. “Brian developed an incredible program,” said Kepley, who graduated from St. X in 1985. “I’m very excited and blessed to have this opportunity. Leading the team this year are a pair of first-team all-league performers, seniors-to-be Smith Brinker and George Rohde. “They’ve had a very extensive summer tournament schedule and have had great success in the past,” Kepley said. “As seniors, they bring the experience of playing at the state championships. I look for them to be our anchors.” Other contributors will include seniors-to-be Brady Carlson, Nick Stenger and CJ Howitt, as well as juniorsto-be Jay Brockhoff, Nick Colvin, Alex Hannan, Lee House, Jack Mitchell and

Joey Arcuri, meanwhile, may be the top sophomore. “We’re lucky to have so many athletes at St. X who play golf,” Kepley said. “We’ve got a lot of guys with good potential.” Despite their dominance over the last two years, the Bombers haven’t won a league title since 2007, when they captured their fourth consecutive conference crown. Last season, St. X finished second in the state but third in the GCLSouth. Kepley anticipates another tough season - not just in the league, but in the city as well. “Moeller, Elder, La Salle, Lakota East, Lakota West and I’m probably forgetting some teams - have incredi-

ble players,” he said. Kepley added that his coaching philosophy is similar to that of his predecessor. “Like Brian, my emphasis is on the short game,” he said. “All the guys hit the ball a mile, and that’s great; but if you can’t put the ball in the hole, it doesn’t matter how far you hit it.” Kepley hopes for a return to the state championships but said the success of this season does not hinge on that. “You can’t control how other teams play,” he said. “If we do everything that we can to prepare and be effective and efficient so we minimize our mental mistakes, that’s all I can ask of these young men.”

How much of a difference will Terrell Owens make for the Bengals, both on the field and off the field? “It’s anybody’s guess. On one hand, he has some impressive seasons (2000-2002 with San Francisco and 2007-2008 with Dallas), but on the other hand, the ability of anyone to endure the rigors of professional football and continue to excel is limited. “Owens is only three years younger than Brett Favre, and his position (wide receiver) is probably more demanding in terms of stamina than Brett. For now, at least for a year or so, the team of Chad and Terrell will be a formidable challenge for the Bengals’ opponents.” Bill B. “Hard to tell this early, but since he has a reputation of speed, and with Ocho Cinco on the other end of the line, the chances of more scoring might be greater for this season.” O.H.R. “While Terrell’s arrival was covered in a positive way and he behaved quite well, his past actions with multiple teams worries me.

Buy a rubber duck for regatta, help neighbor in need Around this time of year, many Anderson Township residents are facing the end of summer and the onslaught of the back to school season. However, there are some in the community whose worries are far more troublesome… like finding their next meal. The statistics are startling: one out of every six families in the Greater Cincinnati area are food insecure, and about a third of all food insecure residents are children. With the 16th Annual Rubber Duck Regatta right around the corner, you can do your part to help. The world's largest and longest-running rubber duck race, the event raises more than $500,000 annually for the Freestore Foodbank. These dollars are critical to helping the Freestore Foodbank meet its mission to feed the hungry in our community; the organization's network of 325 non-profit member agencies provided 2.2 million meals to Tristate communities last year. This year promises to be another record-setting event, and with support from local businesses, communities and dedicated individuals, we're confident that we will send 125,000 ducks floating down the Ohio River on Sept. 5. To prepare for the Rubber Duck Regatta, it takes hundreds of volunteers nearly 2,000 hours to prep the ducks for flight, clean

them up postrace and of course, manage the flow of events on the day of the event. I myself am a 14-year veteran of the Regatta, Kurt Reiber doing my part by assisting Community with duck sales Press guest at Newport on columnist% the Levee and at Kroger. Do you plan to “adopt” a rubber duck as part of this year's race? By participating, you'll not only help our hungry neighbors – you will also have a chance to win a 2010 Honda Fit Sport, if yours is the first duck to cross the finish line. Five runners-up will each receive a $500 gift card from KEMBA Credit Union. There's also a chance the winning duck will be the “Million Dollar Duck”; if the winning duck carries one of 30 pre-selected, confidential numbers, not only will the winner receive $1 million in addition to the car, but $1 million will also be donated to the Freestore Foodbank. There has not yet been such a “lucky duck” – this may be the year! It's easy to “adopt” ducks: you can do it online at; by phone at 929-3825; and at all KEMBA Credit Union locations and Kroger stores.

Tattoos and piercings may come with serious health side effects Tattoos and body piercings are increasingly popular, yet anyone considering a tattoo or piercing should be aware of health risks and take precautions to avoid serious health side effects. State law requires all tattoo and body piercing establishments, including those for cosmetic permanent make-up, to be licensed by their local health department. The law is designed to ensure that these procedures are done in a way that minimizes the transmission of communicable diseases and the risk of infection. People who visit unlicensed facilities (e.g. residential homes, tattoo parties, Craigslist advertisements, etc.) face serious health consequences, ranging from local skin infections to blood-borne illnesses such as Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C and HIV. Additionally, employees of tattoo/piercing facilities are required to be trained in first aid, control of transmission of infectious disease, universal precautions against blood-borne pathogens and appropriate aftercare. Hamilton County Public Health inspects tattoo and body piercing establishments to ensure safe and sanitary conditions are being maintained. The most recent inspection

reports can be viewed at www.hamiltonc o u n t y When choosing a tattooing or body piercing establishment: Tim Ingram • Request to Community see a copy of Press guest the establishcurrent columnist ment’s operating license. The license should be readily available and posted at the facility. • Make sure the establishment looks clean and a restroom facility is available to customers. Look for proper lighting within the establishment. • Verify that the artist’s first aid and blood-borne pathogen training documents are available and up-to-date. Look for previous work done by the artist. Check for pictures on the wall or a binder/portfolio with photos of work that the artist has done. • Prior to beginning any procedure, the artist should wash their hands with soap and water in a nearby sink. • Make sure the artist uses brand new, disposable needles and razors, ink caps and a new,

clean pair of sterile gloves for each piercing or tattooing client. All items should be used only once. • The artist should clean the skin before tattooing or piercing. • Make sure you are given detailed follow-up instructions and follow them exactly as written. Parents should understand and talk to their children about the consequences of tattoos and body piercings. Not all establishments choose to tattoo those under the age of 18. The state of Ohio requires a parent or legal guardian to be present when anyone under the age of 18 receives a tattoo or body piercing. Additionally, Hamilton County Public Health requires a state issued driver’s license, state ID or birth certificate for both individuals. If you have questions about tattoos or body piercings, please contact us at 946-7879 or visit our website at Tim Ingram is the health commissioner for Hamilton County.

There are friends and then there’s a friend The word friend can be a catch-all word. Some people boast about their Facebook friends, “I have 75 friends.” Others reply, “Oh, I have 125,250, or 410, on mine!” High numbers make us feel popular and wanted. In his talks on friendships, priest psychologist Henri Nouwen made some helpful distinctions. He said there are five categories of people we call friends. The categories move from an outermost circle (where intimacy is weak) to an inner circle (where the intimacy factor is strongest). The criterion for determining these five levels of friendship is the degree and quality of mutual self-disclosure involved. Acquaintances are the outer category people. We only know each other superficially. They may be a teacher; other parents we meet at

field-side watching our kids play soccer; someone in our yoga class or that we met on the Internet; a down-thestreet neighbor, etc. The topics with acquaintances are the weather, sports, newspaper items, school issues, life generalities, etc. There’s familiarity but no depth of communication. If we never see them again it doesn’t matter. Colleagues. These are the people with whom we work, volunteer, or meet while doing a project. When I taught high-school I was one of 71 teachers. We were friendly, joked, ate lunch together and chatted in the staff room. Our topics were usually school issues, certain students, athletics, gripes about the administration or parents, or a good movie we’ve seen. At times there was a little more conversation into family or personal issues than

with acquaintances, but not much. Relatives. These “friends” are the assorted group of our grandparents, aunts and uncles, marriage in-laws, cousins, etc. We may see them often or then again only at weddings, funerals, holidays and reunions. But we have a history together and more knowledge about each other. We may exchange minor confidences or problems such as how Uncle Brad was involved in some kind of shady business deal; Pam is coping with being bi-polar; and Kimberly had a brief but passionate affair with a married man. But being a relative does not mean we necessarily choose them as deeper intimates. Family and friends. These are the people with whom we spend a great deal of our time and carry fondly in our hearts – parents, sib-

Church campout to fight malaria The Lutheran Church of the Resurrection, 1950 Nagel Road, Anderson Township, will host a campout on the church grounds Saturday Aug. 14, to bring attention to the Lutheran Malaria Initiative. Participants will include Lutheran Church of the Resurrection members and other local Lutheran churches. Mosquito nets will be used on tents to demonstrate one means of preventing malaria. Each year more than 1 million people die of malar-

ia, a preventable and treatable disease. Lutheran Malaria Initiative is a comprehensive approach to the problem, and includes providing bed nets, developing the medical and community infrastructure to prevent and treat the disease, and increasing awareness and education for those at risk. Lutheran Malaria Initiative is a movement of Lutheran World Relief, the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, and the Lutheran Church – Missouri

Synod, and is made possible with support from the United Nations Foundation. Lutheran Malaria Initiative has partnered with Nothing But Nets to fight malaria. A $10 contribution buys an insecticide-treated bed net, delivers it to someone in Africa, and educates them on its use.

lings, spouse, children, lifelong friends, etc. They know us better than anyone. There is a deeper feeling of affection, mutual support, and trust. If we lose one of them in death we grieve profoundly. Family members share a lot with each other, but not everything. A psychologically healthy person has his or her own boundaries, inner life, secrets and individuality. These components of intimacy are shared only with someone of our own choice, and it is usually someone who is not a blood relative. Intimate friends. This is the innermost circle of human friendship. It is usually our spouse or closest friend. Such a friendship is

extremely difficult to develop, and sadly, is even lacking in some marriages. Recent studies indicate that compared to similar polls in the 1980s, there are fewer people today who believe they have a first-circle intimate friend. It requires mutual trust, in-depth and honest communication, and time. Our Facebook count may give us the impression that we have a thousand friends. But it’s unlikely that this most intimate-type friend is just one of the crowd. This most significant category is not achieved if our communication is chiefly through e-mail or texting. A crucial element is missing – presence.

Such a friend is a unique Father Lou treasure a n d Guntzelman requires Perspectives m u c h openness and communication. I have remembered for years the wise words of a college teacher of mine about this truest kind of friend: “If in your lifetime, you have one, or two, such persons in your life, consider yourself fortunate.” Father Lou Guntzelman is a Catholic priest of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati.

Drink to your health … and for your health much as we do at the same exertion level, so in hot weather, a young athlete is at increased risk for dehydration. And remember, water works as a shock absorber in the body, so being hydrated protects joints, for both kids and adults. That’s why today I’m sharing recipes for good hydration. It’s that important. And be sure and check on older folks, too. They can become dehydrated without realizing it.

The temperature on our thermometer registered 103.2 this afternoon. And in the house, it wasn’t much cooler since I had been making elderberry jelly and berry jams with my sister, Edith and neighbor, Sandy. But it made me t h i n k Rita about kids Heikenfeld and adults who are Rita’s kitchen o u t d o o r s a n d involved in sports. Proper hydration is so important to good health and optimum performance. What I worry most about kids in this weather is that I know it takes longer for a child’s body to adjust to heat and humidity than does an adult’s, so we may not recognize when a child is in trouble, hydration wise. Kids produce more body heat and don’t sweat as

Homemade sports drink for kids

From my co-authored book “The Official Snack Guide For Beleaguered Sports Parents.” Check out colleague Dawn Weatherwax Fall’s website for more information on hydration and keeping your athlete healthy. To dilute a powdered juice drink, or juice from concentrate, use at least

twice the water recommended. Diluting the juice may taste weak, but it will hydrate your child and give energy for the game.

Rita’s spa water

I shared this recipe with Amy Tobin on her Aug. 8 radio show on Q102. Check out for the complete interview. Amy loves this drink, and so does everyone who tries it. Here’s why: Lemons contain vitamin C, which helps heal bruises, prevents cancer and heart disease. Vitamin C is also a powerful antioxidant, and the body uses vitamin C to manufacture collagen – that’s the stuff that glues cells together and helps heals cuts, etc. Again, the vitamin C allows your body to absorb calcium better. Susan Parker of Susan’s Natural World advises that lemons are a gentle liver cleanser. Lemons contain potassium, and we know that nourishes the brain, heart and muscles. It also helps

your body better utilize carbohydrates and iron from food. The mint is a great digestive and uplifting herb plus it “fools” your brain into thinking you’re fuller than you are. And stevia is a natural sugar substitute herb.

Master recipe:

Fill a jar or pitcher halfway up with peppermint leaves, bruising the leaves as you go. Continue filling about 3⁄4 to the top with lemon slices, bruising the slices as you go. Fill with good quality water, let infuse for 30 minutes at least, and sweeten to taste. Use stevia, a natural sugar substitute herb, which is 30 to hundreds of times sweeter than sugar, or use honey, or drink as is. Check out my website for a video and more information about stevia. I like to add blueberries, raspberries or sliced strawberries for a burst of color and added nutrition. This drink is refillable.

Frappé like McDonald’s

How about this on a blistering hot day? Reader Tom Ohmer has been looking for a recipe. When I called McDonald’s, I got a long list of ingredients. It started out with normal items like water, cream, sugar, milk, coffee extract, Dutch cocoa, etc. Then it got dicey with words only a chemist could understand. Years ago in cooking school, we made a base for fun drinks and it is similar to recipes I found for this drink. So here’s my take on it.

Mix together:

1 ⁄3 cup instant coffee, dry, crushed 1 cup sugar 1 cup dry milk powder 3 ⁄4 cup nondairy creamer 1 ⁄2 cup Dutch cocoa Dash or two of salt

To make frappé:

Put a couple handfuls of ice in a blender. Add 1⁄2 cup of half & half. Pour in 1⁄2 cup of mix. Blend on high until

Tips from Rita’s kitchen

• Non-alkalized, or natural, which is the traditional type. • Dutch/alkalized has a milder taste, reduced acidity and is somewhat redder in color. • Special dark is a blend of the two.

Local youth re-enact pioneer trek A group of teen members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints staged a model handcart trek at Caesar Creek State Park near Wilmington, Ohio, June 17 through June 19. These teens, hailing from the Anderson Township, Union Township, Milford, Loveland, Sycamore Township, Wilmington and Georgetown areas, gave up cell phones, computers, shorts and swimming for a weekend of learning about and appreciating their religious ancestors and heritage, said youth leader Jan VandeMerwe. From 1847 to 1869, thousands of Mormon pioneers were expelled from the United States and made the journey to the Salt Lake Valley in current Utah. About 70,000 traveled in wagons, but to save on the cost of expensive wagons and livestock, about 3,000 of these pioneers made the journey on foot, pushing small handcarts. Each person was allowed to carry only 17 pounds of personal belongings. These modern teens

Sierra VandeMerwe, of Anderson, enjoys a break from pulling a hand cart as she watches the family “baby.” recreated this experience, making a difficult trek of their own as they carried sparse personal belongings and hauled handcarts through challenging terrain, VandeMerwe said. Kathleen Pearson, another adult leader on the trek, said the teens stopped regularly to view vignettes where other church members recreated pioneer figures and shared what life was like for them on the trail. They mentioned burning buffalo chips for fuel, living on rations of two cups of flour a day – and when times were difficult, less – losing family members to illness and finding romance. “We have this trek to help the youth understand and appreciate the sacrifices of those early members, as well as build their own faith and courage,” Pearson said. The teens cooked and ate food similar to what the pioneers would have had, she said, such as stew made of water and root vegetables, simple biscuits, beef jerky and fruit leather. The most significant

thing about trek for Gil Marchant, 18, of Milford, is an appreciation for the importance and significance of family. “When it comes right down to it, in the biggest trials and tribulations you have in life, your family are the ones who are always there for you,” Marchant said. “They’re the ones who will always be there to back you up.” Madeline Vance, 16, of Loveland agreed: “The most challenging thing would be to stay mentally positive, even though we were working so hard pushing a huge handcart, but I was able to do that because my family was singing the whole time and really working together.” This bonding with her trek family as they worked together was the best part of trek, Vance said. Matthew Benson, 15, of Sycamore, said he gained an appreciation for how difficult the journey must have been for pioneers.

“It was really nice to be able to go and see what our ancestors went through,” Benson said. “We just gave stuff up for two or three days. They gave it up forever. We just went for few days in the forest. They went all the way across the United States.” Several of the teens were surprised by how physically demanding the journey was. Melissa Bingham, 16, of Batavia said, “It was literally, physically tough. I didn’t think it was going to be as tough as it was.” To get through the challenging tasks, Bingham said her family would sing songs, and talk about our lives “back home,” their schools and their favorite foods. “I learned to take advantage of the things I have and not be so materialistic. Being on trek makes you very grateful for everything you have. I am really grateful I don’t have to go an trek every day, like they did,” she said.

Families break camp and load the handcarts at the beginning of their second day recreating the pioneer trek.

Cancer survivor helps Jamaican man Dustin Kennedy knows what it is like to be in pain and to suffer. By the age of 9, Kennedyhad already endured 16 surgeries. He is a brain cancer survivor and an epileptic. Kennedy, now 13, knows he is lucky to have the doctors and medical care that he receives here in Cincinnati. This became very apparent to him in June when Kennedy and his father, David Kennedy, were part of a mission trip from Clough United Methodist Church to My Father’s House, an orphanage in Whitehouse, Jamaica. During this mission trip, Dustin Kennedy met the family of a man simply called Yellow. Yellow was a fisherman

who worked odd jobs in addition to fishing to support his family. On one of these odd jobs, a home collapsed on Yellow crushing his pelvis. “He is just laying there in the hospital in pain. I have to help him,” said Kennedy. “Hospitals aren’t like they are here in America. They don’t receive pain medication, surgery or anything unless they can afford it,” he said. “They are just left there to either come up with the money or die. I feel sorry for the whole family. Without Yellow his family has no food or source of income,” said Kennedy. Once Kennedy learned that the $400,000 cost of the needed surgery in Jamaican currency is

$5,000 in American currency, he immediately turned to his father and said, “I want to help Yellow. I want to raise the money to save his life.” Kennedy is keeping his promise. He has set up an account under the name of Kingdom Builders Ministries at Fifth Third Bank to benefit Yellow. Donations to help Yellow can be made at any Fifth Third branch or mailed directly to Kingdom Builders Ministries (indicate Yellow in the memo line of the check), P.O. Box 30010, Cincinnati, OH 45230. Kennedy is also organizing fundraisers, including a dog wash through his church, to help Yellow and his family.

Planned Giving Council honors Anderson Township residents The Greater Cincinnati Planned Giving Council recently honored Anderson residents Robert (Bob) and Dell Ann Sathe with a Voices of Giving Award for their selfless giving to the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Greater Cincinnati. It is Bob and Dell Ann Sathes’ deep appreciation for families and children that led to their becoming passionate advocates and benefactors of the Ronald McDonald House. They have become major donors to the organization supporting its major fundraisers, permanently naming a guest room at the House, and making a generous legacy gift commitment to assure that it will be able to provide a “home away from home” for families with critically ill children for generations to come. However, the Sathes’ generous monetary contributions are only the beginning of their commitment to further the Ronald McDonald House mission. Bob has

also devoted much of his time and talents, having served on its board from 2007 to 2009. He has lent his strategic insight and investment expertise by serving on its Finance and Major Gifts Committees, and has been a driving force in the success of its planned giving program and Silver Lining Endowment Initiative. The couple and their friends also enjoy volunteering to serve meals to house guests. “The Sathes have given our guest families priceless gifts – the gift of alleviating so much of the extreme emotional and financial burden of caring for a critically ill child; the gift of a caring community of support to parents who have had to leave their homes, jobs, family and faith networks to come to a faraway city; the gift of being able to devote all their time and energy to the healing of their children,” wrote Tracy Monroe, Ronald McDonald House director of planned giving,

in her nomination form. The Greater Cincinnati Planned Giving Council is a professional association of individuals whose life work is to helping to ensure the viability of charitable organizations. It is among the first Planned Giving Councils nationwide to launch the Leave a Legacy Program that encourages individuals to leave a bequest or other planned gift to a nonprofit cause important to them.
