Dentist helped ID 9/11 victims Anderson Township’s Wright formed forensic dental team

By Lisa Wakeland

ANDERSON TWP. – Dr. Frank Wright was one of the many volunteers who helped in the aftermath of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks at the World Trade Center. But the Anderson Township dentist wasn’t there to clear debris. He was part of a handful of forensic dentists stationed in New York City to identify remains. Wright helped form a forensic dental team in the late 1980s and spent years practicing for mass casualty incidents. When the planes hit the towers he said he felt More compelled to photos help.

The forensic dentists spent days trying to set up a system to identify remains and Wright said “that became the biggest problem.” At first, rescuers were not finding bodies very quickly so that gave the team time to sort through the boxes of medical and dental records. Rescue workers would bring in a few teeth, bits of jaw bone or crowns to the lab, and Wright said they mostly used X-rays to identi-

fy those who died during the 9/11 attacks. They made 18 identifications the first week Wright was there and another 59 identifications in four days during his return trip in December. Providing closure for the families was his motivation to keep going. “It was rewarding and an incredible effort by a lot of people,” he said. “It was an emotional roller coaster, but that kept your focus.” Wright said one of the hardest moments for him was when a rescue worker brought the limb of a firefighter or police officer to the lab, one that could have been

identified by the serial number on a metal rod in the leg. “We tried to explain we were dentists and someone could help, but not us,” he said. “You could see how crushed he was.” Sometimes when he’d get frustrated he would head to the wall where families and friends posted memories of the loved ones lost or missing after the World Trade Center towers collapsed. Wright said that helped him realize “why I was there. It was very reassuring.” One year later Wright returned to New York City for an event honoring those who helped at Ground Zero. A reporter asked him how it felt to be a part of history, and Wright was taken aback because he never thought of his work in those terms. When he returned to Cincinnati and had time to reflect Wright said he realized how fortunate he was to be able to help. “I didn’t appreciate the helpless feeling that the general population had because I was able to do something,” he said. “(For them), there was no outlet to relieve the anger and frustration. There were a million memories and I wanted to focus on making something good come out of it.” For more about your community, visit

Sept. 11 altered Anderson Twp. training By Lisa Wakeland

ANDERSON TWP. – The terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, have altered the perspective of many safety services personnel and those in Anderson Township are no exception. Not only are the firefighters and paramedics trained to handle building fires and medical emergencies, Anderson Township Fire Chief Mark Ober said they’re now prepared to deal with weapons of mass destruction and other large-scale, serious incidents. “The terrorist attacks caused us to retrain our people on how to not only handle these situations but to look for ... things that my indicate a threat,” he said. Following 9/11, Ober said the department received a number of calls about traces of white powder on pieces of mail. The powder might have always been there but in the aftermath of the terrorist

These sessions have become more common since the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks. attacks Ober said, “there was a heightened awareness and we were looking at it totally different.” Much of the community was more cautious and vigilant after Sept. 11, including deputies, said Lt. Mike Hartzler, District 5 commander for the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office. His department has been more in tune with national issues and works with federal, state and other local agencies to share intelligence and information. “One of the biggest changes since 9/11 is the systematic way

we work together on disasters,” Hartzler said. Implementing incident command training was among the recommended policy changes from the Department of Homeland Security. Anderson Township also received an equipment trailer that has enough supplies to handle 100 casualties that can be summoned to any scene, Ober said. Now there is better communication and coordination with safety services departments in neighboring counties along the Ohio River to manage disasters that can

occur in large public gathering spaces like Riverbend Music Center or Coney Island, he said. “We re-evaluated how we operate and made sure we are secure as possible,” he said. “The policies are out and everyone has changed (how we operate). Now is where we’re vulnerable and we have to make sure we’re still on our A-game.” Communication and coordination also has improved with citizens in neighborhood, business and real estate watches. “It’s bolstered the need for the nation’s law enforcement to switch their focus and make sure they communicate with their citizens,” Hartzler said. As the anniversary of Sept. 11 approaches, Hartzler said that enhanced awareness remains. “With the huge tragedy what came from that was a very valuable lesson for the people of the United States,” he said. “People truly learned the value of dedicated law enforcement officers and firefighters. It brought home the value of public safety servants and what they’re willing to give up for others.” For more about your community, visit Presented by Anderson Area Chamber of Commerce and Anderson Township

Anderson Twp. firefighters remember time at Ground Zero By Lisa Wakeland

ANDERSON TWP. – The gravity of the situation hit them as soon as they arrived in New York City. As they looked across the Hudson River, a column of black smoke filled the skyline where the twin towers once stood. “You could have dropped a pin in that bus and heard it,” said Tom Riemar, assistant fire chief for the Anderson Township Fire and Res-



cue Department. “It was total silence.” Riemar arrived with fellow Anderson Township firefighter Lt. Steve Ober shortly before 6 a.m. on Sept. 12, 2001, as part of Ohio Task Force One, a spe-

cialized Urban Search and Rescue team. They were activated within an hour of the second plane flying into the World Trade Center’s south tower in a terrorist attack the previous morning. “You could see the devastation. Some guys had tears in their eyes,” Ober said. “Nothing could prepare you for the magnitude of this.” Smoke filled the bus as they drove past the World Trade Center en route to the

base camp. About 30 minutes after they arrived in Lower Manhattan both Riemar and Ober headed to their first shift at Ground Zero. They set up operations in a neighboring bank, Ober said, and got ready to head into the pile of rubble that was seven-stories high. One of the first tasks was crawling through a hole to reach the subway below the World Trade Center, Riemar said. It took hours and when

Newtown Police Dept. is getting a makeover By Rob Dowdy

NEWTOWN – The Police Department isn’t moving, but its current home is getting a makeover. During the Aug. 23 Newtown Village Council meeting, council voted to spend $22,000 of taxpayers’ money for renovations at the police department headquarters. The renovations, which began approximately three weeks ago, include a new concrete floor, a new roof and a new layout. Chief Tom Synan said the project, which is expected to be completed in three

weeks, won’t give the department more space, but will make it “a better working environment.” He said the renovation was needed because portions of the floor began to collapse in the 40-year-old space and a water leak led to concerns about mold. “In the past it’s been fixed with Band-Aids,” Synan said. As the renovation project continues, Newtown police officers are stationed throughout the village administration building. Officers have set up work stations in the mayor’s office, council chambers and Synan’s office.

Mayor Curt Cosby said the work is being completed by the village maintenance department and private contractors, which has substantially lowered the cost of the project. Synan said the cost would likely double if not for the village doing portions of the project themselves, adding the time to complete the project is probably doubled due to maintenance workers splitting their time between the police department and their other responsibilities.

Miami Valley student works to create careers for disabled

NEWTOWN – Miami Valley Christian Academy student Megan Wilson spent part of her summer creating potential employment opportunities for handicapped people. Wilson was one of 100 juniors from 37 local high schools who participated in the INTERalliance IT Careers Camp program, conducted at the University of Cincinnati, Miami University and Northern Kentucky University. The program challenged students to create careers for people with significant disabilities. During the five-day camp students toured local companies, competed in minichallenges and designed a new business that employs people with disabilities, using technology to make their employment as

effort it took to create the business models and it made her consider what handicapped people must deal with each day at work. “I think I’m more aware now,� Wilson said. Wilson stayed on the Miami campus, which meant she had to travel from Cincinnati each day to tour local companies and work on her group’s project. She called the program an enjoyable experiences, though she was “pretty tired� when it was over. This is the sixth year for the program, and Gundrum said while local businesses have yet to embrace the creations made by the students he’s hopeful that will change someday.

Forest Hills bus driver Rhonda Igel is one of just eight people in the state to be named Regional Driver of the Year by the Ohio Association for Pupil Transportation in the Southwest Region. The Forest Hills Board of Education recently recognized Igel for her accomplishment. Though humbled and appreciative of all of the attention, Igel said that’s not what she’s about. “I’m in it for the kids,� she said. Previously a stay-at-home mom, Igel has been a driver for six years. She came to the profession as a way of getting involved in the district where her two children – Ashlynn, an Anderson High School senior, and Sam, an Anderson High School freshman – attend school. She found her passion in the transportation department. Her focus has long been student safety. It is her efforts in student safety that earned her the recognition. Transportation supervisor Richard Porter nominated Igel. In his letter of nomination he wrote, “Mrs. Igel has been a main player in the redevelopment of our K-3 training program. She was also instrumental in the district’s participation in the Anderson Township Independence Day Parade using the bus safety zone as the theme for entrance into the parade. She was a key player in the development of the Beech Acres Back to School Safety Night. She actively recruits district drivers to participate in the road-e-o. “Simply put, Igel has played a huge role in the development and improvements of our safety programs.�


Forest Hills bus driver Rhonda Igel is the Regional Driver of the Year. Two of the students she regularly transports, Brennan Webb, left, and Sam Tilford, right, assisted with the Forest Hills Board of Education’s recent recognition of Igel.

Igel, working with then Mercer Assistant Principal Julie Thorp and transportation trainer Tracey Brock, redeveloped the K-3 bus safety training program used by the district. The new presentation allows all students to hear the message. In the past only daily bus riders received the training. Participation in the parade and at the Back to School Safety Night will also continue with Igel leading the charge. She’s already working on plans for this year’s parade entry. Igel is all about safety and educating others about school bus safety. “If I can educate others about safety that’s good,� she said.

Ayer students explore America This year’s Special Event Day, sponsored by the PTA, took Ayer Elementary School students all across this great nation as they celebrated the theme Across America, earlier this year. The activities were var-

ied and abundant keeping the students educationally engaged in fun learning opportunities all day. A corn snake was just one of several animals from both North and South America that the Cincinnati

Zoo shared with students, grades 1-6. The focus of the zoo presentation was on American animals and their specific adaptations that make them well suited for their environments.

2011 Party on the Plaza Concert Series Band Performing: Model Behavior Date: Tuesday, September 13 Time: 5:30 pm - 9:30 pm Anderson Center Admission is FREE • All Concessions are $3.00 or less

Presented by Anderson Area Chamber of Commerce and Anderson Township

The students were then out the gate and the race was on as they met the last and youngest jockey to ever win the U.S. Triple Crown Steve Cauthen. During his presentation, Cauthen showed a short video about his 1978 victories riding Affirmed in the Kentucky Derby, Preakness and Belmont Stakes that earned him the coveted Triple Crown. He also talked about his career as a jockey. Another special guest, Doug Smith, had a few tricks up his sleeves for students. Smith, a rope artist and Old West historian, showed fifth-graders a few rope tricks and then gave them an opportunity to try a few of their own. His visit also included a talk about the migration of the American Indians from Oklahoma to Ohio. A trip to the Northeast gave students a chance to learning about lobster biology and the ins and outs of catching and eating the delicious crustaceans Maine style. Kevin Smith of Newtown’s Lobsta Bakes of Main kindly shared his knowledge for this stage of the journey.

Ursuline students serve others in Montana Twenty Ursuline Academy students spent part of their summer serving others in Great Falls, Mont. From June 26 to July 2, the girls and their four chaperones participated in the Young Neighbors in Action program, which provides direct and indirect service opportunities to adolescents across the country. The program also emphasizes the importance of allowing participants to learn more about social justice issues and see the effect their work has on changing lives. Building relationships and breaking down barriers are an intentional part of the Young Neighbors program. The Ursuline students engaged in several service activities at four sites, including Eagle Mount, an agency that provides services for children and adults with special needs. Eagle Mount has a recreation center, home, and horse stables for hippotherapy, which promotes the use of the movement of the horse as a treatment strategy in physical, occupational and speech-language therapy sessions for people living with disabilities on their property. The girls helped with maintaining Eagle Mount’s grounds, and played with and mentored the children. Other activities included working with the Boys and Girls Club of Montana, the Rescue Mission, and volunteering with Set Free Ministries, a “biker church” that provides services for exconvicts, drug addicts and recovering alcoholics. The girls helped wherever needed during the week including yard work, office work, stocking of food pantry, painting, general cleaning and sorting/organizing many of the church’s supplies/storage. “The service trip in Montana was a new experience for me because I had never

Eagle Mount has a recreation center, home, and horse stables for hippotherapy, volunteered outside of Cincinnati before,” said Rita Narayan. “The work we did there was fun and rewarding. My group was assigned to Set Free Ministries, an organization working to help the less fortunate. They run a church and a house, where anyone from drug addicts to prostitutes can live for a year while they participate in a rehabilitation program.” Science teacher and chaperone Monika Nunez said that this was a valuable experience for the students, and “an amazing week.” She explained that the girls spent a week not only doing service in Great Falls, but also learning about a different culture at the four work sites where they served. “Whether we were working with young children whose lives are riddled with poverty, homeless men and women struggling to get back on their feet, physically or mentally handicapped individuals, or former addicts working to rebuild a church, we all learned a great deal,” said Nunez. “The service we did varied by work site – playing with children, painting a barn, cleaning, counting Easter eggs – but regardless of what we were physically doing I think the main takeaway from this week was to not judge others before knowing their story,” she said. Nunez also said that girls made several great personal connections with those they were serving, and hope to continue to make connections with needy in Cincinnati.

On deck:


MOUNT WASHINGTON - With McNicholas High School’s opening game in the Skyline Chili Crosstown Showdown, Aug. 27, the Rockets ushered in the Mike Orlando coaching era. Here, Orlando described his new duties since taking over the Rockets’ program in January.

New job, new challenges

When Orlando, a former Ohio University quarterback, took the head coaching at McNick, he knew what to expect. There was the football side of things, which came natural, but there was a new component to the job. After taking over, Orlando said he became more involved with the lives and the environment of his student-athletes. “You come in and you think you’re ready and you prepare as much as you can prepare… There’s a lot non-football items and responsibilities you have as head coach,” he said. “There’s a lot of stuff you don’t know about until you do it.” Orlando recognizes that his assistants and his players have families outside of football. He believes the key to maintaining a balance between football and the off-the-field stuff revolves around time management. “Managing your time and trying to be organized and having everyone on the same page, can be tough sometimes… but you’ve got to squeeze it in just like any other high school across America.”

On sending a message

Having coached on last season’s regional championship team, Orlan-


McNicholas quarterback Austin Ernst (right), right hands the ball off to halfback Danny Roeding (3) against Newport Central Catholic, Aug. 27. and you can’t let emotions take over,” he said. JOSEPH FUQUA II/STAFF

Max Harmon, left, and the Rockets fell to Newport Central Catholic, 23-13, in Mike Orlando’s first game as head coach, Aug. 27. do knew the Rockets would be starting a lot of fresh faces in 2011. Orlando let his team know on the first day of summer practice that their opponents won’t be feeling sorry for them this fall. “There is not one team on our schedule that is going to feel sorry for us that we lost 16 starters,” he said. He made it clear to his current crop of players that this team and season, belong to them. “They need to take the reigns and lead us and they've done that,” he said. “As a coach, I've really appreciated the effort I’ve been getting from seniors.”

On coaching commitment

Orlando laughed when he said coaching is 25-hour-per day job. He says his wife and kids can

attest to his long days, which begin early with his teaching job at Oak Hills High School. But Orlando added that he knew what he was signing up for when he took the job. “It’s a time-consuming thing, but I love it and this is what I love to do and what I want to do,” he said. "I went there eyes wide open, and my family knew what we were getting into. It’s a long day, but it’s something I really appreciate… I really wouldn't change it for anything.”

Game day

When the Rockets took the field at Nippert Stadium against Kentucky Newport Central Catholic, Orlando said he felt some of the same nervous energy he felt as a player on his Steubenville Catholic Central teams in the early 19990s. But when it came time for kickoff, he said his energy had turned to the task at hand. “You have a job to do and you have to keep your wits about you


While the Rockets were disappointed with their 23-13 loss to Newport, Orlando acknowledged that the game was a learning experience for his current crop of players. “We had 16 fresh faces out there playing varsity ball for the first time ,” he said. “I expect us to move on from (the game) and learn from it and be a better team…”


After the loss, Orlando was charged with another first in his head coaching career: Delivering a postgame speech. He told his team to take the loss in stride, and to never be complacent with losses. He added that if the Rockets took anything away from the game, it was how they competed. “(Newport Catholic) was just better than us, and there is no shame in that,"' he said. “If we continue to have effort this season, we’ll be just fine.” For more coverage, visit

St. Ursula field hockey reigns as team to beat By Nick Dudukovich

WALNUT HILLS – The 2011 version of the St. Ursula Academy field hockey squad believes it can repeat as state champions. But third-year head coach Sarah Catlin doesn’t want the lofty goal to weight on her team. “I’ve been trying to get the message to them that if they focus on just winning a state title, they are going to miss a lot of the season, and it’s not going to work out very well,” Catlin said. She wants the Bulldogs to stay focused because St. Ursula figures to get every opponent’s best shot. “We know everyone is going to be gunning for us,” Catlin said. “We have to to be ready to bring our best game every day.” The Bulldogs will return eight of its 11 starters back from the last fall’s championship squad. The squad will be without first-team, all-state goalkeeper Ellen Ryan, who graduated last spring, but Catlin and company will have four senior co-captains

providing on-field leadership. Senor attacker Elley Frank, who set the Bulldog’s single-season scoring record last fall, scored 21 goals and assisted on six others last fall. Other players returning from last season include midfielder Claire Joseph, defender Ashley Rodd and attackers Molly Small and Maggie Winstel of Madeira. Winstel had the gamewinning shot in state championship win over Thomas Worthington last fall. Catlin said she’d like to see Winstel carry that offensive performance into the 2011 season. “She’s a dynamic player that we’re hoping will put more goals in this year,” she said. Defensively, Joseph will be joined by Maggie Quinn, Caroline Baumgartner of Anderson Township and Elizabeth Cardone. The quarter will be responsible for defending Maddie Reilly of Sharonville, who is replacing Ryan at goalie. Catlin said the junior goalkeeper has the mental

wherewithal to be a successful goalkeeper. “She’s consistent and she’s been strong out of the gate, and I think that shows a lot of mental fortitude,” she said. We’ve been really pleased with her.” The Bulldogs also hope to get a lift from newcomer Marissa Luft, who will play centerback. Catlin said the junior has improved from last year and added that she could be a goal-scoring threat. While the squad believes it can repeat as state champs, Catlin said her squad will measure success this season by more than wins and losses. “If we lose to a team that’s better than us...that’s going to happen,” Catlin said. “Our main goal is to make sure we never beat ourselves. That takes dedication and preparation and the ability to show up on game day and not let anything affect what we’re trying to get accomplished on the field.” For more coverage, visit presspreps


Correll a force in the FAVC By Nick Dudukovich

ANDERSON TWP. Anderson High School's Ben Correll entered his sophomore season with an already impressive list of credentials. As a freshman last year, the Redskins' golfer was named First-Team, All-Fort Ancient Valley Conference after averaging 41 strokes per nine holes. This season, he's got the fifth best league mark with a 39.70 average. Here, Correll discusses his mental approach to the game, his freshman success, as well as his favorite course to play. Q: After achieving a nice level of success as a fresh man, how would you describe the mental approach you brought back to the course this season? A: My mindset, was kind of just to try and do the same thing I did last year, if not better. I practiced as much as I could and made sure my mental approach was there and all right. Q: Did you expect to fare as well as you did during your freshman season? A: I expected to do well...maybe not that well. Q: Were you competing in a lot of junior tourna ments heading into high school? A: Yeah, I competed in four or five a summer.

Q: How much do you think those tournaments help you get ready for play at the varsity level? A: It helped me a lot mentally and it kept the stress away from me. Q: How much did you play this past summer? A: I played four or five times a week. I practiced, six or seven days a week, for at least six hours. Q: What do you think is the key to conquering the mental aspect of the game? A: (I'd say) not getting frustrated with yourself and always having a calm, cool and collected attitude. Q: How old were you when you started playing? A: I started at 8 or 9 years old, but when I was 3 or 4, I would go out and swing my dad's clubs in the front yard, but I've been playing out on regulation courses since I was 8 or 9. Q: What do you like most about playing? A: All the work needed (to play). It's a nonstop learning process. Golf is not something you can learn over night. Q: What's your favorite course to play? A: My home course, Ivy Hills. I absolutely love Ivy Hills. It's got beautiful scenery up on No. 13, for one, and I absolutely love


nature, but Ivy Hills, its name is what it is. It's hilly. It teaches you different shots in golf. If you drive to a normal golf course, you won't have a side-hill, down-hill, up-hill lie. You won't have that. Normally, there are flat lies. Ivy Hills gives you all of those. Q: Do you have a favorite club to hit? A: I'd say my driver, or my putter. I love to putt. I've been good at, and driving has always just been fun to me. Q: Anderson's off to a nice start this season (3-1 though Sept. 1), how do you like the Redskins' chances in the FAVC? A: I think if we get through these next couple of weeks, we'll be set. We'll be doing very well and I know as a team we can throw it together when needed. Q: What goals or expectations do you have for the rest of the season? A: I'd like to become medalist a couple more times during the season, and be first-team, all-conference, and try and come close to winning player of the year, if not winning player of the year (in the FAVC). And I'd like to either get into districts or get into state. For more coverage, visit presspreps

Joey Arcuri didn’t even get to see the greatest golf shot of his life. The St. Xavier High School junior watched his approach shot bounce short of the green on the seventh hole at Makatewah Country Club, Aug. 27. He watched the ball bounce up and land softly on the green. He watched it start to roll. “It just kept looking better and better and better,” Arcuri said. “And then it disappeared.” The group of spectators erupting into wild cheers gave Arcuri the rest of the picture. He had just made a double eagle, or an albatross, scoring a two on the 493yard par-five. Arcuri began jumping up and down on the fairway. A teammate playing an adjacent hole heard the news and ran over to celebrate. “Joey pretty much was walking on water all the way back to the green,” St. Xavier head golf coach Alex Kepley said. “I don’t think

we were able to get him back on Earth until a couple holes later.” It was only the second albatross (a hole in one on a par four or a two on a par five) in known school history. Oddly enough, Kepley saw the other one too. Bryan Kirby accomplished the feat in 1984, with Kepley – then a senior golfer for the Bombers – playing in the group behind him. The double eagle was not an isolated moment of success for Arcuri or the St. X team, though. He was already two under on the first six holes, and he went on to birdie three holes on the back nine to finish with a five-under 67 – matching the school record for lowest competitive round. “All in all it was just a fantastic round of golf,” Kepley said. Arcuri’s history-making heroics paced the Bombers to a team victory in their own tournament – the St. Xavier Invitational – beating a field that included Elder, La Salle, Moeller and Upper Arlington, among other top-flight competition.

Predictably, Arcuri ranked the albatross as the best shot of his career. What’s amazing is that it actually has fairly strong competition. He made a hole in one on the fifth hole Ivy Hills Country Club when he was 8 years old. As the grandson of legendary former St. Xavier football coach Steve Rasso, Arcuri would seem destined for gridiron greatness. Didn’t work out that way, though. The Anderson Township resident stands 5foot-7 and weighs just 135 pounds. “I wasn't really a big kid growing up,” Arcuri said. “My dad (Joe Sr.) took me to the range, and I kept loving it more and more.” Now his goals are helping the Bomber team back to the state tournament and eventually securing a scholarship to play Division I college golf. “I don’t worry about Joey on the golf course," Kepley said. "He knows how to play golf.” For more coverage, visit presspreps

MSJ football sees changes for 2011-2012 season and will be taking over defensive coordinator duties for the third different time. He brought back former Lions head coach Ron Corradini to serve as his co-defensive coordinator. “Some of our defensive coaches had the opportunity to move on, and it was the perfect opportunity for me to do what I love to do,” Huber said. It helps that Huber has faith in assistant head coach and offensive coordinator Vince Suriano to take care of the other side of the ball. “I can trust Vince to take half the team, and I can take the other half,” Huber said. “I’ve spent 28 years coaching defense. I’m ecstatic.” The Lions will put eight men in the box and bring pressure to stop the run, while playing a heavy zone in the back. The defensive line is led by Brett Hambrick (Elder), Adam Bigelow (Anderson), and Rob Fox (Colerain). Linebackers Tyler Hopperton

Which College of Mount St. Joseph football team is going to show up in 2011? The Lions have alternately toyed with mediocrity and success since breaking through with the program’s first playoff appearance in 2004. From 2004-2006, the Lions won three straight Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference titles, and earned an at-large berth into the Division III playoffs in 2007. A disappointing 5-5 season followed in 2008. The Lions bounced back to win the HCAC in 2009, but followed that with another .500 season in 2010. “We were very disappointed in last year,” head coach Rod Huber said. “We had to make some changes in the offseason.” Those changes included turnover in the coaching staff and on the roster. Huber enters his 12th season as MSJ’s head coach,

(Simon Kenton) and Jay Dolak will try to improve on last season. “Last year, we were the worst tackling team I’ve had in 21 years,” Huber said. “We were undisciplined. This year, we are focusing on being very disciplined and buying into the team concept.” The secondary is led by senior strong safety Derek Termuhlen (Milford), who will also be critical in the run defense. “He’s the quarterback of our defense,” Huber said. Termuhlen is eager to lead his unit and the rest of the Lions to a return to glory. He and his classmates are not satisfied with two .500 seasons in their first three years. They want to leave a championship legacy behind and win their second conference title. “I think we got complacent last year after having a 9-1 [regular] season,” Termuhlen said. “We didn’t work as hard in the offseason as we should have.” The hunger returned following

the disappointing 2010 campaign. Huber hired a full-time strength coach to push the players in offseason workouts. Roster changes were also made in the hopes of making addition by subtraction. “We let some kids go who didn’t want to put the team first,” said Huber. The offense has more question marks than the defense. Six quarterbacks enter camp competing for the starting role. It is too early to say who will be the starter. The Lions are looking for leadership and intelligence at the position. “Whoever can run our system the best will win the job,” said Huber. “The window of opportunity to throw is about half a second. We need someone who makes reads quickly.” Running back James Clay will carry the load early and often as the Lions break in their new starting signal-caller.

“We’ve got to run the ball to win,” said Huber. The play of the offensive line will be critical to pave the way for Clay and protect the inexperienced quarterback. Center Rob Bowman (New Richmond) and tackles Kory Bailey (Beechwood) and Joe Noble (Colerain) provide senior leadership up front. The Lions will be young at several key positions, but had a productive offseason and enter 2011 determined to regain their championship form. The Lions have made five playoff appearances in the last seven years, but are still looking for their first playoff win. The optimism and energy levels are high entering this season. “We’re excited,” Huber said. “We have young team. They don’t know what they don’t know yet.” The Lions opened the season Sept. 3, at Wilmington. They will play Thomas More College (JV) at 4:30 p.m., Monday, Sept. 12, at TMC.

While individual Ohio school districts may continue to teach cursive writing, the new state common core curriculum no longer requires it. The focus will now be on keyboarding skills. What do you think of this? Are you glad, sad or indifferent that cursive writing will be fading into the horizon? “I’m sure our founding fathers never dreamt of computers or cell phones. These times they are achanging. We must be willing to change with them. One question though – how will the new generations ‘sign’ their signature? I guess they’ll have to print it.” A.P. “Wow!!! This is one of the toughest Chatroom questions ever. “I hate to see cursive writing fade into obscurity, but I want to be sure that my feelings aren’t based purely on nostalgia (and more on practicality). I’m one of the old codgers who still pays bills with handwritten checks, but the kids today probably won’t do that. “I’ve already learned how to write in cursive so it won’t hurt me. The same is true of my kids, though my grandkids (4 and 7) might be affected. “Short of an apocalyptic destruction of modern civilization as we know it, I don’t see us going back to the ‘old days’ in so many areas, so I can’t really say this is a bad thing. It just makes me feel kinda sad. If worse comes to worse, we can still print. Sigh ...” Bill B. “It just goes to show – we are becoming a rude, crude and unrefined nation. “What’s next?” M.D.D. “It’s a sign of the times. Keyboarding skills weren’t needed when most of us went to elementary school. Cursive was what our parents and grandparents had learned and valued. “My twenty-something child doesn’t use cursive today, he prints. I’ve notice that in many 20 something’s writing. They were taught cursive, but learned as their education continued that they would handle the bulk of their correspondence on a keyboard during their lives, so cursive was no longer valued. “I recognize that our society/culture is different and that young people need different skills. I have no emotional attachment to cursive in spite of the fact that I still use it and love to write personal letters and notes. I’m a dinosaur.” E.E.C. “I'd love to see what a signature looks like with no cursive! Maybe we should all just make our ‘X!’” J.K. “Is this going to lead a new twist on the old ‘Three R's?’ Perhaps the Three T's: ‘textin', typin' and talkin'?’ “On the serious side, I don’t think it's a good idea. People need to be able to write properly and

Send your answers to with Chatroom in the subject line. cursive also teaches discipline, something that seems to be missing in many children today. J.K. “Like most people, I have a box of ‘treasures’ where I keep such things as birth certificates, locks of hair from first haircuts, finger paintings from kindergarten and letters from my grandparents. “Growing up, I received a letter every few months from my grandma Daly. She would write me a page or two of the goings on with her and my grandfather: the weather was unbearably hot, Uncle Richie had just been for a visit, the garden was doing well that year ... “I love to read and reread these letters. I marvel that at age 88 my grandma still thought to pick up pen and paper (she always used such nice stationery) and write to her granddaughter in Cincinnati. “Over the years, I would notice that her penmanship wasn't as ‘flowing’ as it once was. An ‘i’ might not be dotted and a ‘t’ might be missing its cross. But I have kept them all. Stored them safely in my Treasure Box. “How sad it is for today's children and how sad it will be for tomorrow's grandchildren. Instead of saved letters in a Treasure Box, they'll have emails saved on their laptops and instead of saying, ‘grandmother had such beautiful penmanship,’ they'll be saying, ‘look what cool font grandma used.’ “Yes, it is very sad.” L.A.D. “Though I use cursive every day of my life I know younger people use electronic devices that are probably more effective and efficient for achieving the same goals. “Just the same, there are things I do daily that pen and paper work best for me. It's hard for me to imagine a world in which my grandchildren may read my journals, letters and other memorabilia, and think they were written in an ancient language such as cuneiform or hieroglyphics.” R.V. “Cursive writing should be here forever!” J.F. “Am displeased about this. Who writes anything anymore except, maybe a grocery list. Everything these days is ‘Tap, tap, tap, tap, ENTER!’” O.H.R. “I think this is ridiculous. You mean to tell me that someday there will be doctors that can’t write cursive? While they are at it they may as well drop math because there are calculators out there.” D.D.

Anderson Center music too loud for theatergoers

Last weekend I attended my second show in a month at the Anderson Center Theater. During each of them, loud bands playing outside at other center events (Party at the Plaza and a wedding) were clearly audible inside the theater, significantly interfering with my enjoyment of the shows. The center is being very rude in scheduling conflicts like this. It would have been easy to fix; each time the bands were MUCH louder than they needed to be to be heard and enjoyed.

When police need a warrant to conduct a search The Fourth Amendment of the United States Constitution protects citizens from unreasonable searches and seizures by the government by requiring the use of search warrants unless an exception applies. A search warrant is an order signed by a judge that authorizes the police to search for specific property at a specific location. In order for a police officer to obtain a search warrant, he must convince a judge that there is “probable cause” to believe that either ongoing criminal activity or evidence of a crime is present at the place to be searched. Police give the judge affidavits which report their own observations or those of private citizens or reliable police informants. The police officer must swear to the truth of the affidavit. If the judge believes that probable cause exists the judge will authorize the search warrant. Most searches occur without a warrant because there are several exceptions to the warrant requirement. The most common exceptions are: consent searches, plain view

searches, after an arrest, automobiles, and emergency situations. If an officer asks you to search your clothing, house, Brad office or car and Greenberg you give perCommunity mission, the search is valid. Press guest Whatever the columnist officer finds is admissible in evidence. Police do not need to warn you that you can refuse consent to search. No warrant is required when an officer is somewhere he has a right to be and sees contraband or evidence of a crime in “plain view.” For example, if a crime victim calls the police to report a burglary and an officer sees cocaine on the victim’s table, the officer can seize it. A warrant is not required to search a suspect after an arrest. The police may search the suspect and the immediate area around the suspect for weapons

and contraband. This exception is allowed to protect the officer and to prevent the destruction of evidence. Automobiles, because of their mobility, are subject to special rules. For instance, cars may be searched without a warrant if validly stopped and police have probable cause to believe the car contains contraband or evidence of a crime. There are a number of emergency situations where obtaining a warrant is not practical and therefore not required. These include when an officer is in “hot pursuit” of a fleeing suspect, or when there is immediate danger of someone getting hurt or the destruction of evidence. Defense attorneys may challenge the legality of a search or seizure by the police. The attorney files a motion to suppress evidence and argues that the search was unconstitutional. If the judge agrees, the prosecution will be prevented from using evidence that was found in an improper search Judge Brad Greenberg presides in Hamilton County Municipal Court.

You can work and get disability, Medicare benefits Q. I have ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease), and I was recently approved for Social Security disability benefits. I want to continue to work. Can I work and get disability benefits at the same time? A. If you receive benefits under the Social Security Disability Insurance program, we have special rules called work incentives that help you keep your disability and Medicare benefits while you test your ability to work. For example, there is a trial work period. During the trial work period, you can receive full benefits regardless of how much you earn. You just have to report your work activity and continue to have a disabling impairment. The trial work period continues until you accumulate nine months (not necessarily consecutive) in which you perform what we call services within a rolling 60month period.

Ohio treasurer visits Anderson Twp. business Ohio Treasurer Josh Mandel recently toured Motz Turf Farms, 6280 Clough Pike, Anderson Township, to discuss jobs and the economy and to promote the company’s participation in the Treasury’s GrowNOW small business loan program.

Motz Farms used the GrowNOW program to expand recently by acquir-

and making renovations to facilities.

Through GrowNOW, Motz Turf Farms was able to lower its interest rate on a small business loan from 4.98 percent down to 1.98 percent. “Our turf business is very closely tied to construction, which has taken a hit in this economy. We were able to use the GrowNOW program to help buy the retaining wall company, and bring on four additional employees plus increase the hours of our office help,” said Dan Motz, owner of Motz Turf Farms. “This program has also allowed us to invest in new equipment, and to build a

shed to help keep dry the firewood we sell in the winter.” Motz Farms was established in 1868, with a tradition of cultivating highquality crops that has been passed down from generation to generation. Since 1969, the Motz family has concentrated its agricultural expertise on turf. Mandel said, “I believe that by listening to the concerns of small businesses across Ohio we can find ways to make the state more responsive to their needs, particularly in a down economy.”

“Motz Farms has been able to take advantage of the GrowNOW program in order to keep and grow jobs in Ohio, and is a great success story,” Mandel said. “While the programs that the Treasury has in place are a great start more needs to be done to improve the business environment in Ohio so that entrepreneurs can continue to expand and create jobs.” For more information on the GrowNOW program v i s i t : or call 1-800-228-1102, option No. 3.

Garden peppers pop into a tasty Amish relish ing so abundantly that I’m chopping them up for the freezer and making this delish relish.

Rita’s Amish pepper relish

If you go to an Amish grocery, you’ll find the shelves lined with this kind of relish. It’s pricey and sells amazingly fast. Makes a nice gift from the garden and is better than any commercial relish. I store my relish with my other home canned goods in my pie antique pie safe.


Grind or process in food processor, blender, or chop fine by hand, enough peppers to make 6 cups and enough onions to make a generous cup, or more to taste. Put ground peppers and onions in a bowl and pour boiling water over just to cover. Let sit 5 minutes. Drain. Meanwhile, make brine.

Meanwhile, have 6 to 7 canning jars, 8 oz. each (or 4 pint jars) washed and kept in very hot water. Ditto with lids and seals. Drain water from jars and fill to first rim, wipe jars with clean, wet cloth on top to remove any residual pepper mixture (any food on top of the rim will cause a faulty seal). Process in boiling water bath 10 minutes. Even easier: instead of canning, let mixture cool and store in refrigerator for 2 months, or freeze up to 912 months.

Place under a broiler for 5 to 7 minutes (7 to 9 minutes if a thicker cut on high, keeping an eye on it so as to not burn them) While fillets are in oven, heat the apple jelly, rice wine vinegar and soy sauce in a sauce pan on medium, stirring until all melted together. About 6 minutes into broiling the salmon fillets, spoon on the glaze. Place back under broiler until the glaze is bubbly. Remove from broiler and serve hot on top of hot couscous with remaining glaze over top as well as the green onions.

Find your community news at

September is here and that means turf month! What you do to your lawn this month (and fall) is the backbone to how well it can perform next year. So, let’s take a look at three very important things you could be doing – core aerating, seeding and feeding – and some other lawn tips.

Core aerate

A core aerator removes plugs from the soil, and deposits them on top. The cores (holes) help open the soil for better water ⁄ fertilizer absorption, better airflow to the roots, and loosen heavy compacted soils. Do this annually if you

have excessive foot traffic or heavy soils, and can be done spring or fall, as as the Ron Wilson long lawn is In the a c t i v e l y garden g r o w i n g . The plugs of soil dry, break down, and return to the soil surface. Core aerating is not a necessity, but very helpful to most lawns. This is also an opportune time for lightly topdressing with a fine compost, earthworm castings, etc., and raking that into the open holes, adding

Over seeding thinned lawns to help thicken the lawn is one of the best defenses against pesky weeds. Use a compatible seed, or the same seed as the existing grass. A seed slicer (slit seeder) will cut slices through the existing grass to help deposit the grass seed into the soil (very important for seed germination). For over seeding existing lawns use 1⁄2 normal seeding rates (full rates for new seeding). If slice seeding on bare soil, slice seed in at least 2 directions - N to S and E to W, using 1⁄2 the seeding rate amount for each direction. Slit seeders are available at many tool rentals.

For new seeding ⁄ over seeding, apply a starter fertilizer. It’s very important for the new grass and feeds the existing grass as well. For established lawns (no seeding) apply a high nitrogen fertilizer, like Fertilome’s Lawn Food plus Iron. September lawn feeding, along with a late fall feeding, are the two most important feedings of the entire year.

Good moisture is important!

The soil must have good moisture to do these things. If it hasn’t rained, water the lawn deeply 2-3 days in advance. Also mow it two or three days in advance – the lower height makes it easier to perform aerating and seeding. Soil moisture is the key here in getting any of this to work. Be sure to maintain good moisture in the

Benefitting newspapers in education

soil for the new seed to germinate, get growing, and keep growing. If you choose to wait to see if natural rainfall moves in before you aerate and seed, the later you wait, the more the window for opportune times for seeding lawns will close. I’m not saying that you cannot successfully seed in late September through mid October – you can. Many new lawns are established in the fall. But the earlier you can seed, the better the chances for the seed to germinate, grow and ready for the winter.

Weeds popping up

If you have a few weeds in the existing lawn, or some pop up after seeding, we’ll attack them late October (after the new grass is growing and mowed at least three times). The goal right now is getting the new grass growing, or the existing grass growing and filling in. Again, what you do to the lawn now really does help determine how well it can perform next year.

Which grass seed

Use the same seed as the existing grass or one that is compatible. Most lawns in our area are usually a mix of bluegrass, perennial ryes and creeping red fescue, or turf type tall fescues. Not sure? Visit to help identify your existing grass. Once you know, look for the seed to match. And if you’re wondering which is the “best” grass to grow, I’m not sure there is a “best” grass to grow, as it depends on the soil, light and foot traffic conditions, as well as the look you’d like your lawn to have. But for overall performance, sun and partial shade, I personally like the turf type tall fescue blends. One note on seed selection - if you have a bluegrass ⁄ rye mix lawn, do not over seed with the tall fescues and vice versa, unless the lawn is so thinned out you can barely tell grass is even growing. If you want to switch the type of lawn you have from one to another, kill the existing lawn with Roundup, Killzall or Espoma’s 4N1 Weed and Grass Killer first, and then reseed with your new turf selection.

Stroll and Roll to help those with Rett syndrome By Lisa Byrne Contributor

Our daughter Ali was born with a rare neurological disorder called Rett syndrome, which effects mainly girls (1 in 10,000 births). Ali was born perfectly fine, but at her 1-year checkup her doctor was concerned that she wasn’t crawling or even rolling over. We assumed that she was just a little delayed and was happy to just sit and watch the world around her. We were hooked up with early intervention services and she learned to walk (at 32 months) but she never learned to talk. At 18 months she went from a very content sweet baby to a screaming, disconnected, angry child. We thought it might be autism so we had her evaluated and she received the diagnosis of Rett Syndrome. Today she is 16 years old and still continues to walk, but she does not talk, and constantly wrings her hands, the hallmark of Rett. She is completely dependent on us for all of her needs. The sad part is that Ali understands everything, she just can’t make her body function the way it’s supposed to, including communicating. She is basically trapped in her body. When we moved from Pennsylvania six years ago, Ali attended Wilson Elementary for fourth and fifth grade. Towards the end of fifth grade, she became so disruptive with her yelling and fit throwing that we decided, along with support from the district, that she should attend Bobbie B. Fairfax School in Madisonville. This was a positive move because Bobbie B. Fairfax is a school specifically for special needs children and they were equipped to deal with her screaming and disruptive behaviors while trying to teach her the skills she would need to become as independent as possible. Things have gotten a lot better, the screaming and fit throwing is no longer present and we are now in the process of hopefully sending her back to the district at Anderson High School. Over eight years ago a group of parents in the

Cincinnati area formed an organization to help families of children with Rett as well as work to Byrne find ways to raise money for research. Today the International Rett Syndrome Foundation has its office here in Cincinnati and serves families all over the world. At 11 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 17, the International Rett Syndrome Foundation will conduct its eighth annual Stroll and Roll for Rett Syndrome Tri-state Strollathon at Sawyer Point in Cincinnati. In seven years the Strollathon has raised $1.48 million for research. This has paid off because in 2007 symptoms of Rett syndrome were reversed in mice ... a huge, unexpected breakthrough in the research. They are now working on finding a way to do the same in humans. In the meantime there are human drug trials going on at Boston Children’s Hospital that look quite promising for treating some of the symptoms. For more information on Rett Syndrome you can go to and an easy way to make a donation to the organization is to do it online by going to: drome/tristatestrollathon.

Youth and adults from Anderson Hills United Methodist Church recently went on a long mission trip to southern West Virginia. Their trip was part of the Appalachia Service Project summer youth program where high school aged youth and adults provide a home repair ministry to the people of Appalachia with the purpose of making their homes warmer, safer and drier. Anderson Hills sent eight work crews of youth and adults to Wyoming County, W.V., to build porches and wheelchair ramps, insulate under trailers and prepare homes for new insulation and drywall.

Anderson Twp. man to lead fundraising drive Jim Neyer, of Anderson Township, will lead the 2011 Catholic Inner-City Schools Education Fund Campaign as chairman. Once again this year the leadership will be with a family team. Neyer is supported by Bill Neyer, of Anderson Township, and Dave Neyer, of Montgomery, serving as cochairmen, to help reach this year’s goal of $2.25 million in unrestricted funds. This spring, the Neyers made visits to the Catholic Inner-City Schools Education schools to meet the students and staff. After their visits Jim Neyer said, “The CISE schools provide an important stronghold in Cincinnati’s neighborhoods by emphasizing children who are poor or underserved. With a continuous improvement focus, CISE schools provide excellent education in an environment that can freely demonstrate social justice, human dignity and compassion. “Our family supports CISE, because we believe every child deserves a chance to reach his or her full potential. As Dave, Bill and I grew up in this business, we learned from our

Spearheading the CISE campaign is a source of joy that we can honor them in this way.” Jim Neyer is executive vice president of real estate development at Al. Neyer, Inc.; Bill serves as executive vice president of its designbuild team; and Dave is president and CEO. The annual campaign is the major source of funding for Catholic Inner-City Schools Education, which provides tuition assistance, operating support and

enrichment programs for the eight Catholic Inner-City Schools Education elementary schools. More than 1,300 children at eight Catholic elementary schools in Cincinnati’s urban neighborhoods benefited from the Catholic Inner-City Schools Education program during the 2010-2011 school year, and 90 percent of these students live below the poverty level. In addition, there will be more than 212 graduates of Catholic Inner-City Schools Education schools attending local Catholic high schools with help of grants from Catholic Inner-City Schools Education donors this fall. The CISE schools are St. Francis Seraph in Over-theRhine, St. Francis de Sales in East Walnut Hills, St. Boniface in Northside, St. Joseph in the West End, Corryville Catholic, Resurrection in Price Hill, Holy Family in East Price Hill, and Prince of Peace in Madisonville.

Comboni volunteers bring aid to Uganda Twenty-seven Comboni Missionary volunteers – doctors, nurses, medical students, a pharmacist, a dietician and a photographer – went on a 15-day medical mission trip in 2010 to Kabingo, a small, remote village in Uganda. The Comboni Mission Center is located at 1318 Nagel Road in Anderson Township. Comboni Father Richard Kyankaaga, from Kabingo, has been influential in building the foundation for this collaborative mission

work and has helped to implement the plan with extreme competence. The trip was so highly successful that Dr. Dallas “Buzz” Auvil and his wife Melissa have pledged to direct a similar mission trip annually through 2014. The team provides, among other things, basic medical care, mosquito netting in homes, education about health, hygiene, and clean drinking water, and eye exams. The 2011 medical mission trip took place June 30-

July 15. This year, 19 people from various backgrounds went on the trip: one MD, one nurse practitioner, three RNs, one pharmacist, one medical student, one medical technician, one teacher, one librarian, one social worker, three high school students, one grandmother, one chaplain, one business executive, one small business owner and one college student. The youngest team member was 16 and the oldest was 75.

Magnified Giving helps area organizations needed funding, and allowing teachers to touch the hearts and minds of students in their classrooms. I have personally seen the affect the program has on young people as our program at Mount Notre Dame continues to grow.” In addition to the check presentations, several teachers and students were recognized for their outstanding work over the past several years. Mount Notre Dame senior Katelyn Sussli, of Loveland, has been a participant in MND’s Youth Philanthropy Council for the past three years. Through her involvement, philanthropy has become a passion for Katelyn. “Passion is defined as an intense desire or enthusiasm for something and that is what I have for philanthropy. Philanthropy is a way of life that not only exists during a meeting or while on a site-visit, but it impacts your life to behave in a philanthropic way in your everyday actions. It’s about meeting people who inspire you to become a better person. That is what philanthropy means to me: remembering and cherishing the moments, relationships and memories that lead to awarding the grants.” For her impressive work over the last three years, Katelyn was awarded the first annual Roger Grein Spirit of Philanthropy Award and was presented with an iPad2, a valuable piece of technology to a high school student. Being so moved by her experi-

ences this year, Katelyn decided to donate the prize to Josh Cares – one of the non-profits that was awarded a grant through MND’s program this year. Josh Cares will use the iPad to connect patients at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital with their parents via face-to-face video chats. Wyoming High School’s Ariel Warshaw was also recognized for her exemplary work this year. Warshaw was deeply moved by this experience and how it impacted her students. “My students love their community, want to enact change and now know they can, she commented.” Ariel indicated that Wyoming’s philanthropy program has impacted her life both professionally and personally. It has given her a platform to try innovative teaching strategies and to take action when she feels passionately about something. There is much to look forward to for the program in 2011-2012. The organization has a record number of schools interested in participating, and there are plans to expand the outreach to more than 2,000 students in 20 schools. Grein said “I am very excited about the future of the program. Because of the generosity of program funders, energetic and compassionate teachers, eager students and passionate nonprofit leaders, this program is so successful. We are all so blessed.” To donate to Magnified Giving, please contact Roger Grein at 821-9044 or visit

Magnified Giving is the brain-child of local philanthropist Roger Grein. The organization develops student-run philanthropic foundations in high schools across the Greater Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky area. The organization’s mission is to educate, inspire and engage students in philanthropy by touching the hearts of teens and empowering them with the knowledge and skill-set needed to become effective philanthropists themselves. The program allows donor dollars to pass through the hands of students who go on to make the tough decisions about how and where to award the funds. Magnified Giving had much to celebrate from the 2010-2011 school year: 1,200 students from 15 schools participated in programs this year; more than 200 non-profits were reviewed and 20 were selected to receive grants – St. Vincent DePaul, The Point/ARC, Josh Cares, Fernside, Wood Hudson Cancer Research Center, The ALS Association, Rose Garden Mission, Freestore/ Foodbank, Bobbie Fairfax School, Lighthouse Youth Services, Shriner’s Hospital, A Kid Again, Boys Hope Girls Hope, Children’s Heart Association, Building Blocks for Kids, Bake Me Home, Our Daily Bread Soup Kitchen, Cancer Family Care, Autism Society and Cincinnati Therapeutic Riding were among the deserving non-profits receiving grants, and more than 3000 people were impacted by this year’s program. At the organization’s year-end celebration at Mount Notre Dame, several hundred students, teachers, agency-representatives, benefactors and friends of Magnified Giving gathered to honor the work of another successful year of investigation, discussion, transformative learning and difficult decision-making by presenting checks to the aforementioned agencies. The agencies left with much needed funds to do the important work they do, and the students left feeling proud of the what they achieved, the work they did, excitement for the work of which they were a part and inspired about the potential they have to change the world. As the organization’s program director, Todd Forman of Anderson Township has significant interaction with both the students and non-profits and sees firsthand the benefit each receives. “The Student Philanthropy Program has been an outstanding vehicle for connecting young people with social causes within their communities, agencies with

Online scams claim Newtown victims By Rob Dowdy

NEWTOWN – At least three Newtown residents have been recently targeted in online scams, which has the Newtown Police Department hoping to prevent more from becoming victims. Newtown Police Chief Tom Synan said two residents in the last week have filed complaints with police after people they met online have attempted to convince residents to cash a bad check or to wire money to a foreign country. He said another resident brought in the bogus checks he was asked to cash to make sure they were fake. Synan said while most residents are aware of the potential scams he’s seeing

new trends that are “alarming.” He said the scammers who residents have dealt with have attempted to befriend residents before trying to steal their money. Synan said one resident exchanged e-mails with a potential scam artist for approximately four months before the scam was attempted. He added that several residents who declined to participate in the scams have been intimidated by the scammers via telephone or e-mail. “They’re definitely using intimidation to get (residents) to do anything they wish,” Synan said. Police Lt. Shawn McBreen said there’s little any police department can do once a resident sends

money to an unknown person. He said there is information and updates provided on for anyone who wants to make sure they aren’t being taken advantage of, or those who feel they’ve been scammed and want to document the offense. McBreen said those perpetrating the scams typically use temporary e-mail accounts and cell phones, making it much harder to track them. Synan said any resident who is concerned they may be a potential victim of an online scam should come to the police station and officers will look into the situation.
