While coyotes sightings in Anderson Township are not rare, recent invasions have the park district officials on alert.

Sylvia Fiore, who lives near Woodland Mound Park, said she is used to seeing coyotes. “There’s enough other wildlife where (coyotes) would not attack other dogs,” she said. “I really believe they’re coming out at night, they’re exploring and get trapped in here. They don’t want to harm or hurt anyone.” Kushner said park district employees suspect the coyotes

dug under the dog field fence and were trapped. According to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, coyotes are reclusive and typically hunt small rodents at night. They have, however, been known to kill small dogs and cats that are left unattended. If a coyote is spotted inside the dog field fence, park district officials say leave the wild animal alone and call 474-0003.

Newtown boy unites community By Rob Dowdy

Miami Valley Christian Academy, local residents and the Newtown Police Department are rallying around a local child dealing with a serious illness. Miami Valley second-grader Ridgway Miller was recently diagnosed with acute lymphocytic leukemia. While this type of leukemia is the most common cancer discovered in children, it’s what has happened after the diagnosis that makes this such a special case. Since Miller was taken to Cincinnati Children’s Hospital several weeks ago, local residents have created Web sites to stay connected with him, organized visitors to stay with him in two-hour intervals while his parents aren’t available and cooked meals for his family. Jane Stuart, principal at Miami Valley Christian Academy elementary school, organized a blood drive in honor of Miller, and Newtown Police Chief Tom Synan and his officers have given him an honorary badge and remain in contact with

The Web site www.rally4ridgway. com allows the community to stay connected with Ridgway Miller during his hospital stay.

Ridgway Miller is all smiles during a recent visit from Newtown Police Chief Tom Synan. Miller was recently diagnosed with acute lymphocytic leukemia, which led to an outpouring of support from the local community and his classmates at Miami Valley Christian Academy. him via text messages and regular visits. “He’s one of us now,” Synan said. Sherie Miller, Ridgway’s mother, said the support of the community and school has helped her family deal with these difficult circumstances. She said within 24 hours of Ridgway’s admittance into the hospital he had a roomful of “get well”

cards from his classmates at Miami Valley. Sherie said despite Ridgway’s four surgeries and seven blood transfusions, he’s remained positive and upbeat throughout the entire ordeal. “He’s been a trouper through this whole thing. You wouldn’t believe what he’s been through,” she said. Synan said the police depart-

ment’s relationship with Ridgway began last year, when he and a friend won a contest to have lunch with the police chief. He said he picked the students up, took them out for pizza and brought them back to the police station to meet the other officers. Synan learned of Ridgway’s illness while driving through Short Park during a Miami Valley youth football practice. When he and some other Newtown officers went to pay him a visit in the hospital, Ridgway was all smiles. He continued to talk about that ride he won a year ago. Synan said he went to the hospital to cheer up a sick boy, but instead came away with a new perspective. “You walk away more cheered up than when you walked in,” he said.

Fire damages Newtown home By Rob Dowdy rdowdy@communitypress.com

A fire damaged a home on Debolt Road in Newtown last week. The Little Miami Fire Department was the first

responder on the scene, after the 911 call was received at about 6 a.m. Sept. 15. Fire Chief Tom Driggers said the fire occurred on the third floor and attic of a three-story home at 3517

Hundreds of years ago, the Ohio Valley would have been covered in expansive earthworks. Now, a collaboration between the University of Cincinnati, the Cincinnati Museum Center and the Hamilton County Park District is bringing that history into modern times. “Earthworks: Virtual Exploration of the Ancient Ohio Valley” opens Saturday, Sept. 26, at Woodland Mound Park in Anderson Township. Ken Tankersley, Ohio Valley archaeologist for the University of Cincinnati, said “Earthworks” puts museum education into the 21st century. “The exhibit is based on more than 200 years of archaeological research in the Ohio Valley,” he said. “What’s interesting is Hamilton County has been the center of archaeological research in the Western Hemisphere throughout that entire period of time.” Tankersley said the interactive nature of the exhibit moves beyond the stagnant display of artifacts and scientific interpretations. Artist reconstructions of the ancient Ohio Valley gives a new perspective on the region’s history and computers allow visitors to learn more with a single touch. “It combines the oral histories and traditions of living Native Americans, whose ancestors built these earthworks, with archaeological evidence found in this area,” Tankersley said.

An interactive exhibit, “Earthworks,” will be at Woodland Mound Park beginning Saturday, Sept. 26. It details the lives of ancient tribes that lived in the Ohio Valley. Kimberly Whitton, communications specialist for the Hamilton County Park District, said the exhibit allows visitors to take a virtual tour through the sites of various Native American cultures that inhabited the region. “A lot of people don’t have any idea of what’s going on in their backyard,” Tankersley said. He added that multiple earthworks and a 2,000year-old village are among the archaeological finds at the Turner site, an excavation area near Woodland Mound Park.

Changes in home value Mad Dash adventure showcases area diversity could hit Anderson Twp. By Lisa Wakeland

lwakeland@communitypress.com

The Mad Dash for Greater Anderson Promotes Peace is back with a bang. For the second annual event on Saturday, Sept. 26, participants will race around Anderson Township, Newtown, Mount Washington and western Clermont County seeking clues about the area. Christie Brown, co-director of Greater Anderson Promotes Peace, said Mad Dash is a fun way to explore the ethnic, cultural and religious diversity in the community. “It was a way to mix a lot of different goals of (Greater Anderson Promotes Peace),” she said. “We hope it becomes a signature event in Anderson Township.” Teams, with two to four members, must solve clues to find multiple locations in the community while racing against the clock and other participants. Word and math puzzles give hints of challenges to come, which range from eating with chopsticks to a blindfolded assembly of Mr. Potato Head. Brown said the challenges are specific to each location, whether it is a church, restaurant or historical landmark. “We hope Mad Dash gives participants exposure to knowing that diversity exists in our area and that it’s good to broaden your horizons,” she said. Mad Dash also intro-

With all the fluctuations in the housing market during the past year, Anderson Township could have less money for next year’s operating budget. A large number of homeowners have requested revisions to property valuation because of the changes in the economy, Fiscal Officer Ken Dietz said at last week’s board of trustees meeting. Homeowners can submit

a reappraisal request from the Hamilton C o u n t y Board of Revision to modify a p r o p e r t y ’s Dietz value and have taxes adjusted accordingly. “I’d say a lot of them are being approved because of the economy,” Dietz said. “Next year, that’s when it will be taken out of our settlements.”

Dietz said the Forest Hills School District has identified $29 million in changes to market value. However, if the valuation change is less than $50,000, Dietz said homeowners are not required to notify the school district and it is likely many of those exist. He anticipates a $200,000 to $300,000 loss from property value revisions. Trustee President Al Peter asked Dietz to keep the board apprised of any changes.

Storefronts in the Mount Washington business district may get a facelift. The Mount Washington Community Urban Redevelopment Corp. has proposed using city funding for building facade improvements along Beechmont Avenue. Jim Frank with the Urban Redevelopment Corp. said these improvements would include replacing the canvas awnings with aluminum awnings, roof repairs, brickwork and other enhancements. These facade improvements would extend from Plymouth Avenue to Sutton Avenue, said Frank. Mark Macomber, who is also a member of the Urban

Williams

Redevelopment Corp., said another project being considered is converting the former Marathon station outside of the business district into a gateway park and greenspace area. Macomber said city funding would initially be used for a design and feasibility study of the property. Specifics are still being worked out, said Macomber. However, he said it could include features such as a reading garden and bioswale among other possibilities.

The grant funding for both projects would come from the city’s Neighborhood Business District Improvement Program. The Mount Washington Community Council voted in favor of preparing a letter of recommendation for the city. However, before taking the vote board President Jake Williams said several conditions would need to be met before council gave its approval. He said funding for the facade improvements should be “equitably” distributed among the various business owners. Additionally, Williams requested a “geotechnical” study of the Marathon site be done and the study include an estimate of ongoing maintenance costs.

Forest Hills debates facilities committee By Forrest Sellers

fsellers@communitypress.com

The Forest Hills Local School District Board of Education is discussing forming a new facilities committee to explore building construction needs in the district. The school board recently debated whether to use a new “Facilities Master Planning Process” proposed by board member Richard Neumann or to continue with a previous facilities

Neumann

plan. The previous plan was part of a Vision 2010 initiative from sever-

al years ago. Although the board did not take an official vote, it said it would support forming a new committee while not abandoning some of the elements of the previous plan. Although specifics of the plan have yet to be determined, the board did agree that Wilson Elementary School was a priority. An early childhood center will also likely be a topic of discussion. Feedback from the community

will be essential, board members said. “We have to be more decisive, clearer and reach out with a succinct message,” said Superintendent John Patzwald. “It’s important the community see us as aggressive and moving forward (with this).” Neumann said for the district to remain competitive and maintain a high quality of education the facilities will need to be brought up to date.

“By and large, we’re not up to 21st century standards or our (own) standards,” he said. Board members agreed it was important to move forward with some type of plan. Board member Forest Heis cautioned against “paralysis by analysis. “Voters want a definite plan of action,” he said. Board president Julie Bissinger said the next step will be forming the facilities committee.

McNick: Tough schedule; tough read Anderson, Turpin get W’s; Norwell out By Mark Chalifoux mchalifoux@communitypress.com

Almost halfway through the season, it’s tough to get an accurate read on the McNicholas football team. That’s because the Rockets play an extremely difficult schedule. “Our schedule is very tough. The problem with a team like ours is you can have a pretty good team and no one knows because you play teams bigger and better than you,” head coach Steve Klonne said. He said size and physicality were the two difference-makers against a big Division-II school in Turpin and Division I Loveland. “It doesn’t get much easier for us but we’re working to eke out six wins and have a winning season,” Klonne said. McNick is 2-2 through the first four games after beating a very good Chaminade team in overtime 17-16 Sept. 18. In the lone game they played against a team in their division, McNick won 28-21, on the strength of their rushing game. Quarterback Matt Staubach had four rushing touchdowns in the win. “We have a quarterback that runs the ball pretty well and we have a good rushing attack, we just have to find ways of getting more points on the board and getting more production,” Klonne said. Fullback Pat Fitzgerald is the other part of that rushing attack, as he picked up 240 yards through the first three games. “Really our problem is those two guys are productive but our slots and receivers aren’t involved very well and we need to get those guys in the mix to contribute more,” he said. Klonne said the team has done well at times putting

And, despite the difficult schedule, Klonne said his team plays everyone tough. “Don’t give up on us,” Klonne said. “We’re in a very tough conference and we play everybody hard. There’s still a lot of football left to play and we’re going to win some games.”

Anderson 28, Columbus DeSales 25

Anderson paid a large price for its week four win over DeSales, 28-25. Though the Redskins improved to 4-0, senior standout Andrew Norwell appears to be out for the season after suffering an

ankle injury in the contest. Already committed to Ohio State University’s prestigious program, Norwell made a statement to Bucknuts.com on Saturday, Sept. 19, explaining his injury. In the statement, Norwell said he broke his tibia just above his ankle and will have surgery to repair the damage. Norwell will be sidelined for at least three months while missing the rest of his high school football career. In the winter, Norwell will not be playing basketball for the Redskins as a result of the injury, the statement said. Anderson improved to 40 with its week-four win over DeSales, 28-25,

though DeSales managed to post 15 unanswered points in the third and fourth quarters. The Redskins host Amelia (1-3) in week five at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 25, before hosting Winton Woods (3-1) in week six. Winton Woods is ranked No. 2 in the Enquirer’s Division II-VI Coaches’ Poll for week four. Anderson is ranked No. 6 in the Division I Coaches’ Poll. Against DeSales, Anderson took a 14-3 lead in the first quarter on a three-yard touchdown run from Kyle Slater and a six-yard touchdown run by Brandon Bornhauser. Slater and Bornhauser each scored two rushing touchdowns in the game to account for all 28 of Anderson’s points. Bornhauser ran for 121 yards on 19 carries. Slater toted the ball 18 times for 92 yards. Through the air, Bornhauser was 9-for-15 passing for 128 yards with one interception. Jordan Shelton led Anderson’s receivers with 56 yards on three catches. Kevin Cripe scored an interception for the Redskins’ defense.

Turpin 23, Northwest 0

The Spartans’ defense posted its first shut-out of the season in week four as Turpin handed the 3-1 squad from Northwest its first loss of 2009, 23-0. Northwest scored 119 points during the first three weeks of the season before falling flat against Turpin. Turpin improved to 4-0 with its victory over Northwest. Spartan senior linebacker Matt Kelly led Turpin with seven tackles during the

Redskins reign at King of the Hill By Anthony Amorini aamorini@communitypress.com

Bragging rights for the next year belong to Anderson’s boys golf team after the Redskins captured the team title at the 2009 King of the Hill match. Anderson took first place with 165 strokes to best second-place Turpin at 167 strokes and third-place McNicholas at 170 strokes. Coldstream Country Club hosted the annual grudge match Tuesday, Sept. 15. “We’ve been doing this for about 15 years and King of the Hill is always just so close,” Anderson head coach David Lunn said. “It’s a lot of fun and it came down to the wire.” The format for King of the Hill works its way through lineups in reverse order meaning the No. 1 golfers for each team completed their round last, proceeded by the No. 2 golfers and so on. Anderson was trailing by several strokes until senior Michael Marcagi, the Redskins’ No. 2 golfer, turned in

PROVIDED

Anderson High School’s golf team takes a moment to celebrate its King of the Hill title with hardware in hand Tuesday, Sept. 15. In the front, from left, is head coach David Lunn, Michael Marcagi (first-place individual score at King of the Hill), Austin Carney and Wyatt Baker. In the back, from left, is Alex Hoogland, Jake Hendershot, Kevin Polacek, Jason Rice and Ryan Beebe. the top score of the day with a 1-over par 37. With the No. 1 golfers still on the course, all three teams were bunched together with Turpin at 126 strokes, Anderson at 127 strokes and McNick at 128 strokes. “All three teams were sitting around the green waiting for scores to come in,” Lunn said of the intense yet festive atmosphere for King of the Hill. Anderson No. 1 Austin Carney, a Redskin senior, soon turned in a 38 at 2over par to lift the Redskins to its King of the Hill team title. “Our (No. 1 and No. 2)

are interchangeable,” Lunn said of Carney and Marcagi. “We rely on Carney and Marcagi to do well every round. “It puts a lot of pressure on them but they have the experience to handle it. They know the team is counting on them and it’s so cool when they come through like (they did at King of the Hill),” Lunn added. Junior Ben Lammert led Turpin with a 40 during King of the Hill. Turpin junior Wheeler Renfro and sophomore Anthony Parnigoni both finished at 41 strokes for the Spartans.

“It was a little bit disappointing. We had a chance to win it but things just didn’t work out that way,” Turpin head coach Bill Hanneken said of King of the Hill. Carney, a third-year varsity player, has a nine-hole average of 38.9 strokes. Marcagi, a fourth-year varsity player, is close behind with his 39.5 stroke average. Anderson is 8-1 overall with its only loss coming to the Redskins’ Fort Ancient Valley Conference Buckeye Division foes from Loveland High School. Wheeler Renfro, Turpin’s No. 1, is ranked No. 10 in

winning effort. Turpin hosts Ross (2-2) in week five at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 25, before traveling to face Walnut Hills (3-1) in week six. Against Northwest, Spartan kicker Alex Gates converted on 3-of-4 field goal attempts including a careerlong 47-yard boot. A pair of touchdown runs also boosted the Spartans’ score includig a oneyard run from Eric Martin and a 38-yard run from Will Stocker. All told, Turpin outgained Northwest by a 405134 yard margin during a dominant performance for the Spartans. Martin was 12-for-21 passing for 192 yards and zero interceptions. The quarterback also ran for 30 yards on 10 carries. Stocker rushed for 121 yards on 19 carries. Turpin standout Wayne Dunham rushed for 64 yards on nine carries as he made his return to the gridiron. Dunham has missed a significant amount of time since suffering a dislocated shoulder in week two against McNick (Sept. 4).

Lockland 41, Summit Country Day 6

The Silver Knights suffered its first loss of the season in week four to the undefeated squad from Lockland, 41-6. Standing at 3-1, Summit hosts the 4-0 squad from Cincinnati Country Day in week five at 7 p.m. Friday, Sept. 25. Lockland’s Dakota Somma rushed for 133 yards on 16 carries against Summit. Junior Devontay Scott added 91 yards on nine carries for Lockland. In the third quarter alone, Lockland out-scored Summit by a 22-0 margin. All told, Lockland outgained the Silver Knights by a 358-150 yard margin in week four.

Queen of the Hill

The girls golf teams from Anderson, McNicholas and Turpin high schools face off during Queen of the Hill at Coldstream Country Club on Thursday, Oct. 8. Much like King of the Hill, Queen of the Hill is an annual rivalry match with bragging rights on the line between the trio of local high schools.

Cincinnati across all boys golf divisions with his average of 38.06 strokes. Both the Redskins and the Spartans travel to Weatherwax Golf Course for the FAVC Championships at 9 a.m. Tuesday, Sept. 29. “We get (Loveland) again at the FAVC Championships and I think we still have a good shot to win the title,” Lunn said. “We have a chance to makes districts as a team too. This year has been great and there is still a lot to come.” Turpin is 4-2 overall. “We have to beat Wilmington and they are very good,” Hanneken said of the FAVC Cardinal Division. “Wilmington has four guys that are averaging around 38. Hopefully they won’t be able to maintain that kind of pace at Weatherwax.”

have to work pretty hard.” The Bombers (4-3, 1-0 as of Sept. 16) are doing just that. They opened the season with a pair of 1-0 wins over Lexington Catholic and Toledo St. John’s before dropping three straight matches to tough opponents; they lost 1-0 to Cleveland St. Ignatius, which is ranked No. 1 in Ohio and No. 3 nationally; they fell 2-0 to Lakota West, which is ranked No. 1 in the city; and they fell 4-1 to Fairfield, which is ranked No. 3 in the city. Ahrens was pleased with his team’s effort against St. Ignatius and Lakota West, which scored its first goal with just 15 minutes remaining in the game. “(The Lakota West game) was competitive,” he said. “We got the better end of it the first half, but they got the better end of it in the second half.” As for Fairfield, however, Ahrens was disappointed with St. X’s showing. “The one game where we weren’t happy with our effort was the Fairfield game,” he said. “After the Ignatius game, we said we’d make that our standard for competition, and we didn’t uphold that against Fairfield.” In fact, the Bombers allowed more goals against Fairfield (four) than they have in their other six games combined (three). “I think we’re still finding our identity,” Ahrens said. “We’re playing some tough opponents, so there’s

It’s “all-out defense” for the Spartans as Zack Kayes (10), Mark Schaffer (12) and Jeremy Blasch (9) look to prevent St. Xavier’s Nicholas Crowley (4) of Anderson Township from moving the ball closer to the goal and the awaiting hands of Roger Bacon goalkeeper Patrick Anello. bound to be some ups and downs.” Since losing to Fairfield, the Bombers have won 3-0 over Badin and 6-0 over Roger Bacon. Leading St. X is senior Josh Kellam of Pleasant Ridge, who has posted shutouts in all four of the Bombers’ wins. “He made some big saves in our two wins to start the season,” Ahrens said. Also contributing are seniors Chris Nam (M), Jack Wells (M), Connor Sambrookes (D) of Symmes Township and Max Bucher (D). “Our defense has been more of a strength than offense,” Ahrens said. “We’re still searching for

leadership. Even though we’re a senior-heavy team, we don’t have a lot of experience. Some of our guys didn’t start last year or were playing JV. But I’ve really been impressed with the seniors’ desire to work hard.” Ahrens said the Bombers’ top priorities are gaining experience, improving their communication skills and getting more continuity on offense. Ranked No. 7 in the city, St. X is currently atop the Greater Catholic LeagueSouth division, as showdowns loom against La Salle (Sept. 19), at Moeller (Oct. 3) and at Elder (Oct. 17).

Spin for the Cure

Registration has officially begun for Cincinnati’s fourth annual Spin for the Cure. The event benefits the Susan G. Komen foundation of Greater Cincinnati and will be at Xavier University’s Cintas Center on Oct. 10. This year, three breast cancer survivors will be featured each month leading up to the 4th annual Spin for the Cure. Heather Ray of Symmes Township, Angie Knoechel from Mason and Karen Woodworth from Anderson will

share their personal cancer survival stories in a feature on the event’s Web site, www.spinforthecurecincinnati.com. In 2008, this cause raised $20,000 for the foundation in hopes of aiding cancer related causes and research. Spinning will begin promptly at 9 a.m. and run until 1 p.m. The four hour ride will include instruction from three Spinning Master Instructors who will guide the event. If injury or another reason prohibits spinners from participating, Spin for the Cure still allows donations in the form of sponsorships for another rider. A minimum donation of $150 will be required for the first 300 riders in order to register for the event and reserve a bike. Teams of two to four people can register to split up the ride and donation.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Letter from Anderson Twp. official causes concern

I was stunned by Ken Dietz’s rebuttal to the column by Mike Paolucci. I re-read it to make sure I understood what he was saying and I became worried. This is our township’s fiscal officer? I know neither man and have no dog in this fight. But how a man with a financial background can expect the man on the street to believe Paolucci is “way off base” concerns me. I did the math twice, and Dietz is not only off base, I’m not sure if he’s on the same planet. His statements ask us to believe the following: 1. Most of the $30 million bond issue was not spent on the Anderson Center. 2. After deducting $8 million for other projects we should also deduct the unspent $2 million, leaving $20 million as the cost of the Center. But please do not assume two-thirds of 30 is “most.” 3. The $5 million to $6 million lake is a stand-alone project in no way connected with the Anderson Center. 4. The $20 million apparently spent on the Center should be calculated to be only $5 million to $6 million since the township only occupies 30 percent to 35 percent of the center. Apparently Dietz expects us to believe $14 million to $15 million of the $20 million was paid by the lake, the Chamber of Commerce,

Community Television, Summerfair, the theater, Emergency Operations Center, the history room, banquet facilities, storage, dressing areas and community meeting rooms. Frankly, Dietz’s explanation scares me. Do we need an audit? Ray Voegele Wittmeyer Drive Anderson Township

Answers about Anderson Center

Questions were raised recently about the cost and location of Anderson Center. Let me set the record straight. First, a large amount of public input was sought over a number of years through surveys and public hearings. Various scenarios were developed, which finally lead to using the 21 acres the township owned behind Anderson Towne Center. Alternatively, assuming the township offices should be part of the center of the community, one possibility would be to acquire an existing facility, like the old Kroger site. Estimating the cost of the land and building on Beechmont at about $7 million, then with renovation and build-out, a 16,500-square foot facility (about what the township offices now occupy) would probably have cost about $11 million. This doesn’t include the theater, community meeting spaces or other civic amenities Anderson Center

Going in a divine direction The next segment of my “12months to LIVE” career and life quest is under way as I prepare to enter a monastery, The Abbey of Gethsemani, in Trappist, Ky. Although I don’t feel a specific call to become a monk, I am drawn to the idea of a contemplative life, especially after the 15th hour, crazed days of last month’s assignment on the set of a feature film. And I could definitely use divine guidance at this point in my journey. My hope is that a two-week retreat to Gethsemani’s cloistered community of faith will help me figure out my next vocational step. I’ve intentionally kept my research about the Abbey to a minimum. It seems appropriate that I let my introduction to the monastic life simply unfold, without controlling my experience too much. All I know is what I’ve learned from their Web site, www.monks.com, that I need to head 160 miles southwest, and that the Abbey is the oldest of its kind in the country, founded in 1848. When I requested a retreat via e-mail, I received this response: “We have an availability for two weeks, but you’d have to live as one of the monks, without air conditioning.” According to Fr. Thomas Merton (1915-1968), best-selling author of “The Seven Storey Mountain” and long-time resident of Gethsemani, the Abbey provides a place “to entertain silence

now provides. The Anderson Center building, with those amenities, cost about $13 million, not including the lake and adjacent trails. Further, this decision did not remove valuable, tax-generating property from future retail or office use. Thus, for about 25 percent more, Anderson now has a premier civic facility that has hosted more than 1,200 events and more than 30,000 people in a year and a half. Seems like a pretty good use of existing township land and funds. Al Peter Lakewood Pointe Drive Anderson Township trustee

A letter can make a difference

Several weeks ago, I submitted a letter about the seemingly endless number of signs posted along the pristine Five Mile Trail. Well, it seems some important and influential people also read this letter in the Forest Hills Journal. We received a letter from the township informing us that they were reconsidering the need for so many signs along the trail. I’m happy to say, quick action was taken and the number of signs interrupting that lovely 2-mile trail is probably half what it was just a couple months ago. Signs have been double-sided or simply removed. What an improvement! Now this nature walk seems even more natural!

Harold Cook: Role model

I was so pleased to see the article about Harold Cook in the Sept. 16 issue and find that he had an opportunity to go on an Honor Flight to Washington. You should also know that after World War II Mr. Cook became a bacteriologist and spent many years in the City of Cincinnati Health Department laboratories, eventually becoming director. During my pre-med years, I was fortunate to have a job there for several summers, and “Cookie,” as we knew him then, was a wonderful mentor and positive role model. I owe much to him.

Power outages

I was so glad to read about other people having power outage problems. They checked the connection to my house and said everything was fine. The Duke Energy man said it could be the box out at the curb across the street (we have under-

Our power was out briefly twice in 24 hours recently. It is very frustrating to have it go out while I am cooking and waking up to find out it had gone out during the night. I know that even though we have underground utilities in our neighborhood, it still is above ground elsewhere and if a pole gets hit our power can go out. It has affected my oven as the digital light for clock/timer and heating temps are all but completely out due to the outages. I called an appliance repair company and they said it is due to outages that damage parts which can’t be replaced. I think if the power keeps going out in certain areas Duke Energy needs to check it out and find out what the problem is. I call whenever it goes out. It seems to be more frequent since Hurricane Ike winds came through last year. Diana Olson Bretton Drive Anderson Township

in the heart and listen for the voice of God – to pray for your own discovery.” With more than 2,000 acres of woodlands and fields, Gethsemani welcomes visitors from all over the world for personal reflection and prayer. Abbey retreats are silent, unstructured and self-directed, but there are opportunities to join with the monks in singing, beginning at 3:15 a.m., then again at 5:30 a.m., 7:15 a.m. and four other times throughout the day. Although prayer and silence are pre-eminent in the monastic order, work, study, hospitality and love are also important components to their communal way of life. And though I’m mostly interested in their spiritual routines, I am also eager to learn their habit of labor, particularly the art of making fudge. “We earn our living by making cheese, fruitcake, and bourbon fudge. The community has to be fed, clothed, and housed. The needs of the guests are cared for,” says their Web site. Interested in scheduling your own retreat? Visit the Abbey of Gethsemani at www.monks.com, or local to Cincinnati area, the Jesuit Spiritual Center, at www.jesuitspiritualcenter.com.

In reference to Michael Paolucci’s guest column on Sept. 9: Mike, I must commend you on your writing skills. You make a thinly disguised political attack sound like criticism of local government, but you can’t even get your facts right. I am not as gifted in writing as you, but I do understand local government, especially Anderson Township. Paolucci implied that the township trustees vainly attempted to explain TIF (I do not believe anyone can explain TIF to us laymen). But the trustees are correct; building the Anderson Center did not raise our taxes. It was built with funds that would have gone elsewhere in the county – outside of Anderson Township. The township trustees have used TIF money to buy land for our fantastic park system in the past and hopefully will continue in the future. The trustees ensured that the school system receives all of their tax revenue and the Forest Hills School District has actually gotten millions more through the state school funding formula because of TIF. He also implies that the Anderson Center cost $30 million to build.

I am not sure where he got this figure, but I understand Anderson Center cost less than $14 million. The larger figure included funds for the lake, surDale rounding park, Bartholomew B e e c h m o n t mprovements, Community iFive Mile renovaPress guest tion, Ohio River columnist Trail, etc. The building is solidly constructed and extremely functional, built to last, not opulent, rather practical, in accord with our premier community. Only one-third of the building is actually used for township offices. Paolucci conveniently neglected the two-thirds of the building used for community meetings, performing arts, community gatherings and much more. Anderson Center is a civic facility for all of Anderson to use, and when they do, there has been nothing but a positive response. I would suggest that Mr. Paolucci get out of his small circle and meet other residents of Anderson Township. It’s been my pleasure to work with our present trustees, and it’s

CH@TROOM Last week’s question

Has there been a decline in civility at town hall meetings and public meetings in general? If so, why is this happening?

“Yes. Emotions are over running manners.” B.L. “People are fed up that the officials that we elected to represent us aren’t. It comes out of frustration.” C.A.S.

“A decline in civility? Perhaps. A shattered economy, expanding government, and corrupt politicians have woken a sleeping giant. People are finally paying attention to what is happening to their country and they don’t like it one bit. I was at the recent tea party and town hall in Mason and the crowd really let Rep. Mike Turner and Rep. Jeanne Schmidt have it when they gave weak explanations for several of their votes. It seems that most politicians have forgotten that they are

amazing the dedication they have for the well-being of Anderson. They work very hard to stretch levy monies as far as they can (only one levy request since 2000). Maybe some have forgotten, but I have not, that the trustees pulled the greenspace levy before its time. They recognized that we had enough greenspace funds and therefore withdrew the levy, saving taxpayers money. The trustees set priorities based upon citizen input through surveys and public meetings. They have used excellent judgment in allocating funds to improve our quality of life, taking into account realities. For instance, while Beechmont is a priority, only so much can be done, since most of the property is private and right of way is state controlled. Townships can’t spend money on private property, only for public purposes. Township government is limited for the benefit of all and is close to the people. Our trustees recognize this and make the most of the situation. Dale Bartholomew lives in Anderson Township.

Leap Beyond Therapy provides enrichment

Summer often is a time to relax and play. However, it can also be a time for students to lose skills and knowledge from the previous school year. “Children with IEP’s can take longer to learn things, and can have difficulty retaining information, thus the reason Leap Beyond Therapy decided to help students refresh their academic awareness through a Summer Enrichment program 2 years ago,” said Leap Beyond Therapy Co-Founder Ruth Grant-Bailey. LBT’s Summer Enrichment program ran for four weeks, three hours a day, three times a week at Clough United Methodist Church. The program had 10 students, one teacher, two assistant teachers, and 6-10 volunteers per class. “It was a very structured program, and (my son) Luke was able to work on things in his IEP in preparation for the upcoming school year,” said parent Melissa Gaskey. “Leap Beyond Therapy works extremely hard to make our programs, whether it is therapy, fitness classes, or the Summer Enrichment program individualized to meet the child’s specific needs,” Grant-Bailey said. Leap Beyond is now registering for fall classes such as Bike Club, Expressing Emotions Small Group, and Yoga. For more information, call 232-5327, or visit www.leapbeyondtherapy.com.

Why love treats us the way it does misunderstand love. Spouses quickly become surprised to find out what’s underneath love’s charming exterior, and to know it when it’s stark naked and demystified. As Mason notes, over the years love sometimes pulls the rug out from under us, turns the world upside down, or throws a pail of cold water in our faces and says, “You haven’t learned about me yet!� It demands the very best we can offer. And at other times that are just glorious, love teaches us it is the most exquisite thing in the world. When love is demystified and lives with us in the ordinary of every day, it is bothersome at first. We can even become disappointed and disillusioned and start looking for the mystified version again. We’re all seduced at times by the French proverb, “Only the beginnings of love are beautiful� But true love has its own purpose in being so demanding. Its purpose is to gradually transform us and turn us into genuine lovers. That’s why it employs such drastic strategies: asking us

to forgive over and over again; to be patient with each other and ourselves; to communicate instead of pouting or keeping a cool distance. Later in life, and especially in the next, love will

were amazed when love took off its clothes, stretched out on our bed while eating an apple, and announced it was here to stay. Suddenly, this elusive and mysterious thing called love was not so elusive or hidden. Rather, it became that which cannot be gotten rid of (unless we made the decision to throw it out.) What was glamorous and exciting and sexy now has its days when it is anything but all that. What was a dream is now here and asking daily to be listened to. In “The Mystery of Marriage,� author Mike Mason notes, “The situation with love, now that one is married, becomes comparable to the philosophical question about the dog chasing the car - “What happens if he catches it?� Marriage faces spouses with the same question, “What do you do with love once you have finally caught it?� In a sense, he opines, marriage is a trap. A trap to get us to be brave enough to live with love day after day and to learn what love really is. For God knows, we

When two people marry, one of the greatest mysteries of life is gradually demystified before their eyes. For when we marry, love itself comes to live with us. As children we learned there was something called love. Parents, older siblings, schoolmates, songs and movies spoke of it. Often they seemed to imply that love actually was sexuality. We didn’t understand. Yet, since we were old enough to know love existed, and then soon felt its attraction and enchantment we looked for love, too. After many futile relationships, heartaches, and years of searching, we believed we found true love with a special person. It must be true love, we thought, because of the thrilling way it made us feel. We were in love! Our wedding was beautiful, our honeymoon was spent somewhere with our bodies in each other’s arms, and then we moved into a little home of our own. When we moved in, love moved in with us - though we didn’t realize all its intentions. One day we

take off its earthly mask and become further demystified. We will recognize that, as the scriptures say, “God is love,� and that all along he was growing us and teaching us what true love means.

With the school year in full swing and flu season upon us, we’re all into the “wash your hands often� mode. I thought it would be good to share my recipe for homemade foaming soap. It’s actually been around a while but is sure timely today. Plus by making your own foaming soap, you’ll save money and be doing your part to be “green.� Let the kids help – they’ll have fun, and be more apt to wash their little hands if they’ve made their own soap.

I’ve had several requests for cream puffs/fillings for Oktoberfest parties, similar to what Servatii’s serves. Use your favorite cream puff recipe (I have one on the Web version of this column). Here’s a couple different fillings. The first filling holds up better, meaning you can fill the puffs and refrigerate them at least several hours before serving; the second filling is more delicate and more creamy.

I’m taking a cake decorating class at Grant School in Clermont County. Martha Buckler is my teacher and she shared some valuable tips in last night’s class: • Bake cakes and quickbreads at 325 degrees and not at 350 degrees as most recipes state. You’ll have to bake them longer but the lower temperature allows them to bake all the way through to the middle without sinking. Especially true for very large cakes. • To smooth white or pastel color frosting, dip spatula in warm water and smooth over cake. Smooth top first, then sides. Don’t use on chocolate or deeply colored icing as this will leave streaks and spots. Rita Nader Heikenfeld is Macy’s certified culinary professional and family herbalist, an educator and author.

Youth on a mission

Bill Warden, a volunteer with the Sheriff’s Citizens’ Patrol, talks with a resident at the Anderson Towne Center Kroger during a seat belt check hosted recently as part of the Hamilton County Safe Communities program.

Volunteers urge residents to buckle up Anderson Township’s Sheriff’s Citizens’ Patrol, the local Citizens Emergency Response Team and the Anderson Township Fire and Rescue Department worked together recently to encourage residents to buckle up for safety. Volunteers stationed outside the Anderson Towne Center Kroger handed out “smarties” candy to motorists who were “smart” in wearing their seatbelts. For those who did not have their seatbelts on, motorists were given a

penny for “good luck.” As part of the Hamilton County Safe Communities program, this seat belt safety check showed that 85 percent of the 267 individuals checked in two hours were wearing their seat belts, a higher rate than the county average, according to Kirsten Montgomery, Hamilton County Safe Communities coordinator.

The Senior and Junior High Mount Washington Presbyterian Youth Groups recently returned from summer mission trips. The Senior High group spent a week in Washington, D.C., working with, “The Pilgrimage,” the city’s oldest service-learning hostel organization. The group worked in a food bank, a homeless shelter, DC Central kitchen and two soup kitchens. The group also spent time interacting with people living on the street, taking part in various programs where homelessness is being addressed. The youth also managed some time for a sightseeing tour of the monuments, a trip to the Holocaust museum, Arlington Cemetery and a Nationals baseball game. The Junior High group traveled to Louisville to work with Urban Spirit, where they discovered what it means to experience, “food insecurity” and attempted to get local services without transport. They worked in the local community and spent time learning about the social economic life of those living in poverty. The group also was able to spend a fun day at Six Flags.

Runners hit the pavement The 13th annual WCPO/Kroger Big K 5K – beginning and ending at the Northern Kentucky Convention Center – recently featured more than 600 runners and walkers. Money raised through the event supports the agency’s ongoing mission to match at-risk kids in the community with positive adult role models who serve

as Big Brothers and Big Sisters. “This was the most successful event in the 13-year history of the 5K, a great event for the entire community – families, businesses, schools, all coming together to spend a Saturday morning supporting kids in our community,” Kathy List, president and CEO of Big Brothers Big Sisters of

Greater Cincinnati, said. The 5K saw Bigs and their Littles on the course, as well as hundreds of people simply out for a run to raise money and awareness for Big Brothers Big Sisters. For information about how you can help support mentoring that changes lives, call BBBS of Greater Cincinnati at 421-4120 or visit www.bigsforkids.org.

Fleet Feet in Blue Ash sponsored a program called No Boundaries, and recruited new runners to train for 12 weeks. This 5K was the culmination of their training.

Women that move

School year is blessed in

More than 15 million women from ages 20 and over move each year. Moving is one of the top 10 “traumas.� It is often devastating for a woman to move. Some of the more difficult hurdles are leaving behind family and friends, losing familiar surroundings, feeling of disbelief, anger, sadness, grief, loneliness and isolation.

Classes will be based on the book “After the Boxes Are Unpacked: Moving On After Moving In� by author Susan Miller that wrote her book after moving more than a dozen times as an adult. She is committed to the

At Anderson Hills United Methodist Church leader Sue Black said, “She has seen deep friendships form as a result of attending these Newcomer classes over the eight years that she has been a leader. Whether a woman has been in the Cincinnati area three weeks or three years and still doesn’t feel she belongs, this class is for her and invites her to ‘Come and meet your new best friends!’� Call Sue Black at 2339556 or reach her at vicnsueb@fuse.net, if interested in the Anderson Township class.
