Consolidation option nixed

By Forrest Sellers

fsellers@communitypress.com

The Forest Hills Board of Education has voted to maintain two high schools in the district. Following a recommendation by Superintendent Dallas Jackson, the school board also said it would keep the current configuration of six elementary schools and one middle school. This recommendation came after a survey conducted by Jackson as well as after several community meetings. Jackson said he also reviewed the recommendation of the Forest Hills Local School District’s Facilities Committee as well as a previous survey conducted by Fallon Research and Communications Inc. “There is strong community support for maintaining two high schools,” said Jackson. Jackson said consolidation of buildings at any level was not supported by the community even if the consolidation would reduce operating costs. Board member Rich Neumann, who chairs the facilities committee, said the district needs to address the condition of the school buildings. “Our facilities are not helping us reach the next level,” he said. The facilities committee had recommended two options to the board. Both options involved consolidation of the buildings, and one of the options involved consolidating the high schools. Neumann said the board should consider a bond issue in conjunction with an operating levy. The board, though, said an operating levy was the biggest pri-

ority and a bond issue could potentially jeopardize its success. As part of his recommendation, Jackson said the district should also “continue to create new opportunities for input from the community” and develop a strategic plan. Board President Tracy Huebner said this was essential. “I think the district needs a strategic plan and vision,” she said. Anderson Township resident Tim Kappers said he supported Jackson’s recommendation, but he said discussion about consolidating the high schools had damaged the board’s credibility. “You have fractured the community,” said Kappers. “It will take a great effort to pull the community together. You need to listen to the community.” Anderson Township resident Randy Fuller said he also was in favor of the recommendations proposed by Jackson. However, he said the school board needs to clarify “the money situation” and also elaborate on what it considers necessary improvements to the buildings. The board has not voted on when an operating levy will be on the ballot, but has indicated putting a levy on the May 2011 ballot is under strong consideration.

Trash pick-up irks some in Anderson By Lisa Wakeland lwakeland@communitypress.com

Some waste trucks are starting their Anderson Township routes before dawn and irritating some residents. Trustee President Russ Jackson said the township has received complaints that haulers from Forest Green Waste Service have started as early as 4 a.m. He said the trustees were prepared to take action to regulate start times for waste haulers, but did not want to resort to legislation. Wendell Shelton, owner of Forest Green Waste Service, said his drivers aim to get to the township by 3:45 a.m. and start shortly after that. “When we get a complaint, we shift to another area,” Shelton said, noting that most waste removal service providers do the same.

Cyclical complaints

Anderson Township Public Works Director Richard Shelley said complaints about noise from garbage trucks and early start times come in cycles. He said most complaints are in the early spring and in the fall, the time when many residents have windows open.

early start times and shifted to other areas. He said he doesn’t think the township has to resort to regulating start times, but if the trustees decide to act, Shelton asked that it be applied to all waste haulers. Assistant Township Administrator Suzanne Parker said the trustees have received complaints about other waste removal companies in the past.

Ann Kavanaugh, who is also a member of the community’s Holiday Decorating Committee. “We want to place the decorations in a place where they will have more of an aesthetic impact.” Mike Lacinak, vice president of the Mt. Washington Community Urban Redevelopment Corp., said one noticeable change is lighted snowflakes will no longer be on the poles. This will eliminate the electrical cords which were often visible, he said. Lacinak said the placement of holiday lights in the

business district also will be different. “We’re trying to improve the look,” he said. Lacinak said some of the alterations were based on feedback from residents. He said the new look is based more on aesthetics than economic considerations. Decorating in the community is traditionally handled by the Mt. Washington Community Urban Redevelopment Corp.

Newtown group offers ‘Trunk or Treat’ By Rob Dowdy rdowdy@communitypress.com

Children in Newtown now have two opportunities to score candy the weekend of Halloween. The Newtown Business Association is hosting “Trunk or Treat” Saturday, Oct. 30. The event will feature representatives from village businesses offering candy from the trunks of

Knights of Columbus, which traditionally provides lights for the tower and also strings them on the tower. The Holiday Decorating Committee is made up of members from both the Urban Redevelopment Corp. and the community council. During the Oct. 20 community council meeting, community council President Jake Williams had proposed using $250 from the community’s operating budget to match a similar amount provided by the Urban Redevelopment Corp. for decorating.

Kavanaugh, though, recommended against this until an inventory of the decorations had been done. William’s motion was withdrawn. Plans are to begin decorating the second weekend of November. Volunteers are needed. For information, call Lacinak at 708-8776.

Barbara Broerman, owner of the Dairy Corner, said she proposed “Trunk or Treat” after attending a similar event with her grandchild last year at a local church. She said 10 to 12 Newtown businesses are expected to participate this year, but more businesses and individual residents also are welcome to participate.

The Anderson Township Historical Society will meet at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 3, at the Anderson Center, 7850 Five Mile Road, in the Lower Atrium next to the History Room.

Newtown goes it alone with parking options By Rob Dowdy rdowdy@communitypress.com

In the coming months, visitors to the Newtown administration building will likely have to do a little more walking than before. During a recent council meeting, the Newtown Village Council decided not to renew its parking lease with Newtown United Methodist Church. The village has leased parking space from the church next door to its administration building for numerous years and paid $6,600 for the lease this year. Councilman Mark Kobasuk said the village has negotiated with the Little Miami Fire and Rescue District to use seven parking spaces at the current fire station across the street from the administration building. The church lease expires at the end of the year, and

New playground for Laverty Park By Lisa Wakeland lwakeland@communitypress.com

Laverty Park will get an upgrade later this year. Ken Kushner, executive director of the Anderson Township Park District, said they plan to remove the current play equipment in the next couple months. Park district officials recently received a $34,802 grant from the Ohio Department of Natural Resources for the playground. Kushner said the new equipment and installation will cost about $75,000. After an open house and input from nearby residents, the park district officials picked the new playground, which has slides, climbing

Kobasuk

Kobasuk said the village will have enough parking spaces with the fire station and village-owned parking lot on Main Street. Mayor Curt Cosby said with the municipal parking lot next to Newtown Feed and Supply, residents should have plenty of parking options when visiting town hall. “We’re asking everyone to park in the municipal lot located on Main Street,” he said. Cosby said the money the village typically spent on the parking lease will go back into the general fund. Kobasuk said once the new village fire house is completed in 2011, Newtown will be able to use all of the parking spaces at the current fire station. “Because we own that property across the street ... we’ll have all those spaces,” he said.

The Anderson Township Park District recently received a grant to update the playground at Laverty Park, seen here. structures and swings. It should be ready for play by next spring. “It has a lot of lower elements and a lot of play value,” Kushner said of the

new playground. “The kids really liked it and connected with it.” Da’Andre Hadnot, 11, who lives near Laverty Park, said he likes the new

design and thinks his younger sister will love the new playground. Hadnot added that he’s glad the basketball court will stay because he plays there often with his brother. Cat Robinson, who also lives near the park, said the new playground will be much nicer than the current one at Laverty Park. “The kids don’t go down there much, but I think it will be more popular with the new equipment,” she said. Kushner said the current playground is at least 20 years old.

one of the country’s leading Catholic moral theologians, will give the lecture: “Persistent Unconsciousness and the Use of Assisted Nutrition and Hydration: Medical and Moral Reflections.” This lecture will explore the

extent of medical certainty regarding the condition of persistent unconsciousness and address the current state of Catholic moral teaching regarding the care of such patients. The lecture is free and open to the public.

This is a rendering of the future playground for Laverty Park. The park district plans to have the playground ready by spring 2011. PROVIDED

Court schedules Anderson Township mine hearing By Lisa Wakeland

Schedule

lwakeland@communitypress.com

A court hearing on the future of a proposed underground limestone mine near the intersection of Broadwell and Round Bottom Roads in Anderson Township has been scheduled for Tuesday, Dec. 21. Three communities and dozens of residents filed an appeal asking the Hamilton County Court of Common Pleas to reverse the Anderson Township Board of Zoning Appeals June 2 decision approving a conditional use permit and zoning variances to allow the Martin Marietta Materials mine. Attorneys for all parties met with Magistrate Michael Bachman Oct. 12 to discuss the future of the case and set a schedule to hear the four motions filed on Oct. 8. The three communities – Indian Hill, Terrace Park and Newtown – filed a joint motion with mine opposition group Citizens Against Blasting On Our Miami to vacate judgment.

LISA WAKELAND/STAFF

Hundreds of citizens from Anderson Township, Terrace Park, Newtown, Indian Hill and other communities attended nearly two years of hearings on an underground limestone mine near the corner of Broadwell and Round Bottom roads. The Anderson Township Board of Zoning Appeals approved the mine in June and the decision is being appealed in the Hamilton County Court of Common Pleas. Terrace Park Solicitor Bob Malloy explained later that the motion states the Board of Zoning Appeals attempted to rule on various zoning amendments that were outside of its jurisdiction.

Martin Marietta filed three motions on Oct. 8 to dismiss the appeals of all three villages, to dismiss the township Board of Zoning Appeals as an appellee and to dismiss Citizens Against

Blasting On Our Miami (CABOOM) as one of the appellants. CABOOM filed its case jointly with 63 residents and business owners near the proposed mine site.

Attorneys for all parties have until Friday, Nov. 5, to respond to the four respective motions before Magistrate Michael Bachman and until Nov. 19 to answer to those responses. A hearing on the following four motions is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 21, at the Hamilton County Courthouse. • Joint motion for an order compelling to vacate its June 2, 2010, decision. • Motion to dismiss appeal of appellants Indian Hill, Terrace Park and Newtown. • Motion of defendantappellee Martin Marietta Materials Inc. to dismiss appellant Citizens Against Blasting on our Miami as a party appellant. • Motion of defendantappellee Martin Marietta Materials Inc. to dismiss the Anderson Township Board of Zoning Appeals as a partyappellee. Anderson Township filed six boxes of transcripts, and exhibits for the case in early

September, but attorneys disagreed on what constitutes the official record. Dick Brahm, attorney for Martin Marietta, said plans, e-mails and letters should not have been included. “These don’t constitute evidence or the record,” Brahm said. Tim Mara, attorney for CABOOM, argued the court could rule on the motion to vacate judgment because it does not involve the record. Bachman said the attorneys for all parties must agree on what is part of the record for the Martin Marietta mine case before proceeding with the appeal. If any major issues arise or the attorneys can’t agree, Bachman said he would entertain other motions about the record after hearing the motions to dismiss and to vacate judgment. The appeals of Indian Hill, Terrace Park and Newtown were consolidated with the appeal from CABOOM, residents and business owners in early September.

Food stamp probe ends in raids, arrests A two-year investigation into food stamp fraud ended in several arrests and three businesses, including one in Mt. Washington, facing the prospect of losing their liquor licenses, state authorities recently announced. State and federal officials recently raided two businesses and a private home, according to a prepared statement from the Ohio

Department of Public Safety. They searched Sutton Pony Keg, 1191 Sutton Ave., Mt. Washington; Mt. Airy Food Mart, 5564 Colerain Ave., Mt. Airy, and a residence in the 1300 block of Parkway Court in Fairfield. Administrative citations were issued to Sutton Pony Keg, Mt. Airy Food Mart and Coogans Bluff, 852

Wright St. in Newtonsville. Operators of the business are accused of improper and illegal conduct related to illegal use and trafficking of food stamps. They will be required to appear before the state’s Liquor Control Commission, where they could face penalties including fines, suspension and/or revocation of liquor permits.

“Our agents take food stamp fraud very seriously. Ohio’s food stamp program is vital to our citizens,” said Ohio Department of Public Safety Director Thomas J. Stickrath. “We need to ensure these funds are being used to assist families and individuals in need.” Two Fairfield men face federal criminal charges: Brandon Shteiwi, 22 and Ibrahim Shteiwi, 24, are accused of providing firearms/ammunition to a known felon and dealing in firearms without a license. Brandon Shteiwi also faces an additional count of food stamp fraud. Three men were charged criminally at the state level: Nazih Shteiwi, 54, of Fairfield, Nabih Shteiwi, 52, of Fairfield and Ayman AbuNaffa, 37, of Cincinnati. All are accused of illegally using food stamps or benefits from the Women, Infants and Children (WIC) program and receiving stolen property. The investigation was conducted by agents with the Ohio Investigative Unit and officers with the U .S. Department of Agriculture, Office of Inspector General. Police from departments in Cincinnati, Fairfield and Hamilton assisted in the execution of the search warrants.

Hamilton County Sheriff’s Deputy Matt Rusk fills out a vehicle report card as part of an effort to make Anderson Township residents aware of items often stolen from vehicles.

Police to start issuing vehicle ‘report cards’ By Lisa Wakeland lwakeland@communitypress.com

Anderson Township residents may start noticing something tucked on their windshield in the coming weeks. Though it comes from the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office it’s not a ticket – it’s a vehicle report card. Lt. Mike Hartzler, commander for District 5, said the report cards are meant to inform the public about the prevalence of theft from vehicles. “It will indicate whether a car passes or fails and may not always indicate there is something to steal,” Hartzler said. “It’s to educate people on

how to better protect themselves from being a victim of crime.” Patrol officers and members of the Citizen’s Patrol will concentrate on areas that have a higher concentration of theft from autos and on other residential streets, Hartzler said. The report cards have check boxes to notify owners if there is property in plain view, doors are unlocked or windows are open. Anderson Township resident Roger Wagner said this is a great initiative. Wagner, who is a member of the Citizen’s Patrol, said this will be an especially helpful reminder as the holiday shopping season nears.

Township selling property for new office By Lisa Wakeland

For sale

lwakeland@communitypress.com

Anderson Township is planning for a new office building. Township trustees recently approved a zone change from single-family residence to planned office for the property at 7887 Beechmont Ave., near the Anderson Square apartments. Steve Sievers, assistant township administrator and Development Services director, said the township bought the property in 2007 with the intent to construct an accessway to the signal at King Louis Court. Malia Rendler, who owns Malia’s Kitchen at 7863 Beechmont Ave., said the access drive is a good idea. “I think it will be helpful, especially for my older customers so they can feel more comfortable and it will help me when I have a delivery and (Beechmont Avenue) is really busy,” she said. “Sometimes I have to sit and wait five minutes to get out.” Rendler, however, is not as thrilled about the planned office building.

She said there are plenty of empty buildings along Beechmont Avenue for an office to move into and is tired of the “tear down and build new” philosophy. Sievers said no private developers have planned for a building yet and the zone change is specific enough for nearby property owners to have some assurance of what would be constructed on the property, which is currently for sale. The zone change, a staff report on the case said, “creates a transition from general retail along Beechmont Avenue to the multifamily complex at the end of King Louis Court (and) a general office use would act as a buffer between more intense retail uses to less intense residential uses.” Rendler said she doesn’t think having an office building in between the

Anderson Township purchased the parcel at 7887 Beechmont Ave. in 2007 to construct an accessway to King Louis Court and have recently put the property back up for sale. According to an online listing, the property is 90 feet by 225 feet and the township is asking $175,000 for the parcel. The property was recently rezoned for planned office and is large enough to support a 4,400 square feet two-story office building with 15 parking spaces, the listing says. retail and residential zones will make much of a difference. The access road would be constructed behind the businesses from Xtreme Sound to Tuffy Auto Service on the south side of Beechmont Avenue, Sievers said. Allison Varland, who lives in Anderson Township, said the access road would make it easier to get to those businesses. Sievers said the township would like to have the road constructed this year.

Officer earns award for saving teen

By Rob Dowdy rdowdy@communitypress.com

Newtown Police Officer Mike Wedding was just doing his job, but his efforts on July 10 went far beyond patrolling the streets and filling out police reports. Wedding was recently honored with the Newtown Police Department’s Life Saving Award for his efforts to save a 16-year-old Dayton resident visiting relatives in the village. Wedding discovered the teen during his last patrol at approximately 4:20 a.m.

around the village when he saw his bike in the front yard of a home on Pinehurst in the Ivy Hills neighborhood. As he approached the bike from about 30 yards away he noticed the unconscious teen lying nearby. “I could feel he was breathing and had a heartbeat,” Wedding said. The teen awoke as Wedding called an ambulance and Wedding said the teen told him he had been riding his bicycle to a relative’s home he was visiting when he blacked out.

As the teen was placed in the ambulance, he went into cardiac arrest. Wedding said paramedics relayed to him that had he not called for help when he did, the teen likely would have died. “They were able to bring him back, thank God,” Wedding said. Newtown Police Chief Tom Synan recently commended Wedding’s efforts during a Newtown Village Council meeting. He said the department’s Life Saving Award is its “most prestigious” honor.

slated to get a little more help. Township trustees approved a $55,000 contract with Strawser Construction Inc. for micro-surface overlay on seven township streets, a trail connection and patch work behind the Hunley Road fire station. Public Works Director Richard Shelley said this is a

yearly project that helps extend road paving funds because it costs roughly one-third of the traditional grinding and paving. The micro-surface overlay is an asphalt and aggregate combination similar to slurry seal and puts a new surface on the road, Shelley said. He added that the sealer helps extend the life of the

street pavement until it is time for full repair. These streets, Shelley said, do not require curb

Forest Hills educators find how ‘tweet’ it is

By Forrest Sellers fsellers@communitypress.com

For a Forest Hills Local School District administrator Twitter has become an educational tool. “You have a window into professional development,” said Dani Watkins, assistant principal at Sherwood Elementary School. Twitter is a message-distribution system that allows users to post continual updates of up to 140 characters detailing their activities for followers or providing links to other content. However, Watkins has done more than just read Twitter messages from fellow professionals. She and Principal Dan Hamilton began posting school-related items on Twitter at the beginning of the school year. They also created a blog. We thought it would be a good way to keep parents informed, she said. “We tweet about things that are happening,” she said. “(We) update parents on what is going on.” Watkins said she and Hamilton will typically tweet at least five times a week.

“It’s instant access to other thinking.” Cheryl Nowak Third-grade teacher at Sherwood Elementary School “We are both doing it so it makes it consistent,” she said. Watkins said they are also encouraging the teachers to use Twitter, although the teachers do not necessarily have to send messages. “You’re networking with people of similar interests,” she said. Third-grade teacher Cheryl Nowak said she appreciates the information she can gain using Twitter. “It’s instant access to other thinking,” she said. “What I like is being able to see what other educators are doing.” Watkins shared a similar sentiment. “I learn all kinds of things I’d never known about,” she said. It offers a new and fresh perspective on things, she said. Sherwood Elementary School tweets can be accessed on Twitter at SherwoodEl.

Dressed in their best red, white and blue, Summit Elementary third-graders stand on the front stairs of their school and, in a photograph, create a living representation of the American flag. The resulting photograph, along with a display board, will travel throughout the community gathering messages of appreciation for veterans of the military service. A schedule of the traveling exhibit will be provided on the district and Summit websites. The traveling exhibit will eventually return to Summit to be displayed during the school’s annual Veterans’ Day Ceremony. The patriotic project is part of the third graders’ practice of community service. Each month the students conduct projects that exemplify habits of volunteerism and good citizenship, said teacher Rosietha Wilhelm. “Third-grade social studies standards place great emphasis on participation under Citizenship Rights and Responsibilities,” she said. “This is specifically outlined in the content standards document ‘demonstrate effective citizenship traits including civility,

Aching Turpin remains unbeaten By Nick Dudukovich

ndudukovich@communitypress.com

An injury-rattled Turpin High School football team maintained its undefeated (9-0) record by trouncing Little Miami, 42-0, Oct. 23. The Spartans’ overwhelming victory came despite playing the contest with 19 players sidelined with injuries. Despite the roster setbacks, coach Rob Stoll is not ready to throw in the towel, and is counting on younger classes to prevent the team from collapsing. “We are fortunate to have depth and athleticism in our younger classes that prevented us from falling apart,” Stoll said. “All of our skill players who started the year on offense are out, but one (Mike Millikin).” Noticeably missing from Spartans potent offense are quarterback Eric Martin (torn meniscus) and wide receiver Shade Whitfield

(shoulder). The duo are expected to miss the remainder of the season. Martin, who last played against Wilmington on Oct. 8, had thrown for 1,470 yards and 22 touchdowns on the year, while Whitfield, who last recorded statistics against Milford on Sept. 24, had 11 touchdowns and 505 receiving yards. With Martin out, sophomore Connor Jansen will take the snaps at quarterback. Jansen made an immediate impact for the Spartans against Little Miami, by completing 10-of-11 passes, for 164 yards and two touchdowns. He also rushed for 106 yards and a touchdown on seven attempts. Turpin was also without running back Will Stocker for the week-nine game. Junior running backs Cole Hazenfield and Connor Donovan filled in for Stocker, and didn’t let the Turpin faithful down.

Week 9 football results McNicholas 38, Carroll 7

McNick’s Matt Staubach and Dillon Stanfield combined for four rushing touchdowns as the Rockets moved to 7-2 on the year after trouncing Carroll. McNick concludes its regular season against Badin on Oct. 29.

Winton Woods 27, Anderson 20

Despite Nick Mason’s 204 passing yards and two touchdowns, the Redskins were not able to triumph over Winton

Hazenfield rushed for 129 yards and two touchdowns, while Donovan added 150 yards to the Spartans’ ground-game. Stocker could be in uniform for Turpin’s game against Kings Oct. 29, as his condition is being evaluated game-to-game, Stoll said. The Spartans will also need to rely more heavily

Woods on Oct. 21. With the victory, Winton Woods captured the FAVC Buckeye Conference championship. Anderson (7-2) closes out the regular season against Harrison on Oct. 29.

Fort Loramie 40, Summit 7

The Silver Knights lost their second game in a row to move to 6-3 on the season. The loss is Summit’s third in four games. Summit closes out the regular season against Clark Montessori on Oct. 29. on their defense. The unit, who was once in the shadow of the senior dominated offense, has taken the challenge to keep the Spartans afloat, according to Stoll. “Our defensive line has been the glue that holds us all together,” Stoll said. “Led by three seniors, Conor Farley, Andrew Flohr and Haden Howe...add the generalship and consistency of

(defensive back) Alex Durso, who is the signal caller for our team, and all four have been playing their best football.” Stoll credited the line’s play in shutting down Wilmington and Walnut Hill in week seven and eight. Team morale also remains high, despite the loss of key senior leaders, according to Stoll. “Other players have taken the opportunity to show what they can do,” Stoll said. “We have enough depth and talent to still be dangerous...if we can continue to improve with our new faces on both sides of the ball, we still have a chance to shake things up. Don’t count us out.” Turpin entered week nine ranked No. 3 in the Associated Press’ Division II state football poll. The Spartans host Kings to determine the FAVC Cardinal Conference championship Oct. 29.

St. X golf finishes 8th at state By Tony Meale tmeale@communitypress.com

Alex Kepley felt the pressure at districts. The first-year St. Xavier High School golf coach served as an assistant under former coach Brian Shircliff for six years, and all six years the Bombers advanced to state. “I’ve never had an experience other than going to state,” Kepley said. “And I didn’t want to be the guy to break the streak, especially in my first year.” Fortunately for St. X, he didn’t. The Bombers, which won a sectional title, were district runners-up after shooting a 302 at Miami Whitewater Oct. 6. They finished behind Moeller (287) and ahead of Centerville (305). St. X advanced to state for the seventh straight year and has five top-four finishes since 2004, including a state title in 2008 and a runner-up finish in 2009. “Only three teams from Southwest Ohio get to go every year, and to be one of 12 teams in the state to advance seven years in a row is huge,” Kepley said. “I think our performance

GARY LANDERS/STAFF

St. Xavier High School senior Smith Brinker of Anderson Township helped the golf team to its seventh straight appearance at the state championships. has shown that we’re definitely one of the top programs in the state.” The State Boys Golf Championships were Oct. 22-23 at the Ohio State University Scarlet Golf Course in Columbus. St. X shot a 661 to finish eighth overall. Seniors George Rohde of Mount Lookout and Smith Brinker of Anderson Township shot a 159 and 168, respectively. “Both of them are tremendous golfers,” Kepley said.

Rohde and Brinker led the team for much of the season. Junior Lee House of Delhi Township shot a 165. “Lee has far exceeded expectations for any team’s No. 3,” Kepley said. Also contributing were seniors Brady Carlson of Blue Ash (1699) and Nick Stenger of Delhi (174). St. X sophomore Eric Buse helped the Bombers advance to districts before being replaced by Stenger. “The tradition of the program is that if things are

generally equal between two players, you give the nod to the senior,” Kepley said. Kepley said before the tournament the four teams with the best chance to win state were Columbus St. Charles, Cleveland St. Ignatius, Dublin Jerome and Moeller; those teams finished first, second, third and sixth, respectively. St. Charles also won state in 2009. Kepley said he expects House to be the team’s No. 1 next season.

Next question

Do you think communities should regulate the number and sizes of political signs people can display on private property? Why or why not? “The greatest thing about our country is our freedom. It doesn’t make any difference to me how many political signs people put on their private property – or how large they might be. It’s like TV – look the other way if you don’t like what you see. “But what really peeves me are the inconsiderate folks who leave the signs up for days, weeks and even months after an election day. Communities should fine the violators – say $10 or more – per sign per day after elections. Just think what that would do to boost the communities’ bottom lines! ‘Nuff said ...” M.M. “Not only the number and size of the signs, but how about placing a law that within 72 hours all signs have to be removed or the responsible candidate will be fined per sign left standing to weather and fade in the many weeks and months after the election.” O.H.R. “There should be regulations not only on yard signs, but also radio and TV ads. By Nov. 2, I’m ready to regurgitate.” D.J. “Absolutely. They should only be allowed on private property, not in the right-of-way, and should only be permitted for a limited amount of time. “Most importantly, they should be required to be removed after the election.” P.C. “Do I think communities should regulate the number and sizes of political signs people can display on private property? Absolutely not! And I say that even for those people whose political affiliation is in direct opposition to my own. The government does not need to be involved in this aspect of our lives – it’s none of their business. The political season is only for a very short time, and even if we disagree with a candidate or an issue, the signs are only going to up for a brief

We should just grin and bear it. It’s not going to hurt anyone. Unless your neighbors are causing a serious problem (and political signs aren’t a serious problem), you should let people exercise their freedom of speech and expression.” B.B. “No. Just hope they know what must be done!” J.F. “No, communities should not regulate the amount of political signs on a property. We do live in a country where our views are to be heard or in this case seen. Who cares how many signs are in your front yard? Living in Anderson Township, we are already regulated on how many pets a homeowner can have, what time our children should be in at night, how your camper or boat should be parked on your property and how your yard and home should look just to name a few. I say who cares about political signs that will be taken down in just a few short weeks.” I.B “I find political signs to be annoying, unsightly litter. They often deface our community by lingering long after elections. Anyone dumb enough to vote for a candidate just because his neighbor put up a sign is a fool who shouldn’t have the right to vote. That said, it is doubtful that this type of sign could be regulated in any way without running afoul of our constitutional protections of free expression. Further, there is no practical way to separate the fools from the informed voters. If we prevented the fools from voting, there may not be any voters left. If you regulate political yard signs, what’s next, the content of my mail?” F.S.D.

Vote for Brinkman

On Nov. 2, voters should consider voting for Tom Brinkman, Republican, to replace Dusty Rhodes as auditor of Hamilton County. It is high time for some new blood and ideas after 20 years in office. As our statehouse representative for eight years, Tom fulfilled all of his campaign promises – voting for no additional taxes, voting to reduce spending and consistently voting pro-life. During that time, he also cofounded COAST (Citizens Opposed to Additional Spending and Taxes). As auditor, Tom will receive only one salary instead of two as Dusty Rhodes has in mind after retiring as auditor receiving a pension, only to be re-hired as

Monzel will bring common sense values to commission My name is Chris Monzel, the Republican candidate for Hamilton County Commissioner. On Tuesday, Nov. 2, the voters in Hamilton County have an opportunity to decide who will best lead Hamilton County as county commissioner. This election is not just a decision between two candidates. It is a decision on the direction of Hamilton County and its future. I am a Republican who is fiscally responsible, believes in individual freedoms, small government, free enterprise and family values. On the other hand, my opponent represents more of the same tax and spend policies, which are the wrong thing to do in these tough economic times. My opponent also supports the $128 million streetcar and has voted for nearly every single tax increase while on Cincinnati City Council. He even voted against the property tax rollback four times. My opponent’s solution for the stadium fund short fall is to … raise taxes! This proposal will not

only break the promise to the citizens and raise our property taxes … it has already been rejected by the current County Commissioners. Chris Monzel I believe we need smaller, Community limited governPress guest ment. We need columnist. lower taxes and less government bureaucracy. We need transparency and accountability. Being a leader is about this core set of principles and values. This is why I am running for Hamilton County Commissioner, to bring these common sense values to the commission. It’s time for a change; the county needs someone who will stand for principles and values. That is why I have been endorsed by the Ohio Tea Party PAC, the Fraternal Order of Police, the Greater Cincinnati Board of Realtors, the Home Builders Association, Cincinnati Right to Life, Family First and Cit-

izens Opposed to Additional Taxes and Spending (COAST). I am that needed change and this is why I am asking for your vote on Nov. 2. Every year I have been on Cincinnati City Council I have led the fight to rollback our property taxes, which has been successful in keeping our taxes low and promoting home ownership. I also led the fight for the City Charter amendment, which froze City Council’s automatic pay increases, saving taxpayers thousands of dollars over the past several years – which my opponent voted against it. On Tuesday, Nov. 2, the voters in Hamilton County have an opportunity to decide who will represent them as county commissioner in the fall elections. They will determine who best represents the principles and values of Hamilton County. Please exercise your right to vote. Vote Tuesday, Nov. 2 and please vote Monzel! Chris Monzel is the Republican candidate for Hamilton County Commissioner.

Elections too important for guessing in the ballot box Just wanted to remind my fellow Andersonians to spend a little time getting ready to cast your vote this coming Nov. 2. It’s commendable for you to show up at your polling place, but it’s even better if you are prepared for what you will encounter. I have a hunch that many of us are surprised by issues and contests we encounter when we go into that little curtain-enclosed space and see our ballot. The national media has given a lot of coverage to political races involving people like Alvin Greene of South Carolina, Christine O’Donnell of Delaware, Harry Reid, Barbara Boxer, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, and many others. But you and I are not going to be asked to cast a vote on any of these people; they are not on our ballot. Our candidates are local, and have not garnered that much interest nationally. Our choices are going to be more mundane nationally, but nonetheless, important.

At our level the most noteworthy candidates will be, of course, for the governor of Ohio, U.S. senator, U.S. representative, state Bill Banchy attorney general, state auditor, Community secretary of Press guest state, and othcolumnist ers. But we are still going to be asked to cast our votes for less well-known candidates for office, and for quite a few judges. One of the things that always puzzled me is why some of the candidates for judges (especially “Common Pleas”) are running unopposed. Therefore, they will be elected automatically. It makes me suspect that the major political parties have made a deal not to oppose candidates for these positions, and that bothers me. Voting is too important for peo-

ple to simply guess when they go into the polling place. May I suggest that if you don’t know exactly what is going to be on the ballot at your polling place that you take a moment to research this. It is relatively easy; simply go to the Internet and search for http://www.hamiltonco.org/BOE/. If you don’t have a computer, ask a friend or relative to look this up for you. Once you are at the site, it is very easy to pinpoint your voting location and pull up a sample ballot and print it. You may still not know which candidate to choose (especially for the lesser known positions such as judgeships), but you can find people who share your views who can help you, like your precinct executive. But don’t wait until you get behind that curtain and you realize you have no idea who to choose. This is too important for guessing. Bill Banchy is an Anderson Township resident.

What a grieving person can expect from others No other experience is as frequent as loss. Life begins with the loss of the comfortable womb and ends with the loss of life in this world or of people we dearly love. Between womb and tomb there are many varieties of other findings and losings. Accompanying each loss is a certain degree of grieving. I say “a certain degree” because losing our wallet, losing some of our hair, losing our job, losing our health or mobility, and losing our spouse or child all cause grief of varying degrees. It’s the loss of someone loved that creates the greatest wound. The word “grief” comes from the Latin gravis, “to bear,” “to carry the heaviness and depth of a situation.” We only grieve what has value to us. When a person we love dies, contrasting feelings fight within us. On one hand we appreciate this

valued person we’ve been blessed to have and hold in our heart. On the other hand, our heart’s sorrow is immeasurable because we can no longer hold him or her. Life’s treasures become life’s losses. Yet we must never hesitate to love because someday we may lose them. That condemns us to a wooden-like life. Grief is normal. Like other primal emotions it resists words and platitudes, resists being pinned down, analyzed and dealt with as a measurable problem. We resist others’ thinking they know just how we feel, for our love and our pain is specifically ours. What we do not resist – and need very much – is the sensitive understanding of others. Our compassion, maturity and social graces help us relate to those in grief. They help us know what to say and what not to say; what to do

and what not to do; and realize when the one grieving wishes to be left alone and when our presence is needed. Many people are uncomfortable around a grieving person, sometimes petrified, insensitive, rude or disconnected. Leon Wieseltier in his book “Kaddish,” derides what he sees as the American preoccupation with moving on, “closure,” tidying up painful experiences and memories. “Americans really believe that the past is past,” he writes. “They do not know that the past soaks the present like the light of a distant star. Things that are over do not end. They come inside us and seek sanctuary in subjectivity. And there they live on, in the consciousness of individuals and communities.” Is what he says about our obsession with moving on and obtaining closure true?

I believe so. The most repressed and banished fear we carry around is death anxiety. We are afraid of death, we don’t like to be around it, we exercise and diet to avoid it, we don’t talk about it. Men, much more than women, are struck dumb in dealing with such sensitive issues. Woody Allen, speaking for many men, relies on humor to avoid dealing with death. Allen said once, “I don’t mind dying, I just don’t want to be there when it happens.” Whether it be excessive death anxiety or lack of social graces, we can still learn to be of support to grieving people – not just in the immediacy of their loss, but over the long haul. During many subsequent weeks or months we can genuinely ask how they’re doing, be willing to really listen if it appears they wish to talk a little, and not

just presuppose “they should be over it by now.” After one of Father Lou my sisters died, Guntzelman a remaining sisPerspectives ter received a card and kind expressions of consolation But after two weeks it was never mentioned again. We never “get over” the major joys and sorrows of our lives. Sure, we like to talk and share our joys. But our sorrows always remain heavier to bear alone. Yet realistically, every one of us must learn to do that despite all the caring support we receive. That’s just part of being an imperfect human with a vulnerable heart. Father Lou Guntzelman is a Catholic priest of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati. Contact him at columns@community press.com or P.O. Box 428541, Cincinnati, OH 45242.

High-risk insurance plans now being offered Although health insurance reform is on the books, many provisions won’t kick in for a few years. Yet some things, like high risk health pools, took effect in September. This comes as a relief to many who have pre-existing conditions. Donna Griffin of Kennedy Heights lost her job last year and has been keeping her health coverage by paying for Cobra Insurance. She has a condition requiring her to take pain medication, and that’s causing problems. “Now that my Cobra Insurance is getting ready to

run out, I’m having problems getting health insurance. I’m being denied because I have a pre-existing condi-

tion,” she said. Several health insurance companies cited her spinal cord implant as the reason for denying her coverage, while another would only give her coverage if she paid a monthly premium exceeding $760. “I have bills to pay,

books for school, so I’m at a dead-end road and that’s why I called you, so you could help me and all the others out there who are having the same problem I’m running into,” Griffin said. So I told her about a new high-risk pool in Ohio run by Medical Mutual of Ohio. “I’ve never heard of it and I’ve been on the computer looking. You’re the first person I heard mention this,” said Griffin. I had her go online and see this is part of Health Care Reform – The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act that became law March 23.

Ohio is one of 30 states running its own high-risk pool, and it has two plans. The first plan has a $1,500 deductible and the second plan – costing less money – has a $2,500 deductible. You can pick the plan that’s best for you. Griffin put her information into the website and found a plan that will cost her $365 a month, which is less than she’s paying now. “I can deal with that,” she said. The only problem with this high-risk insurance is you have to be without

Add some spice to the mix with Buffalo hot sauce Last week I shared two of my favorite Halloween recipes on Channel 19’s morning show with Sheila Gray and Dan Wells (who was filling in for Rob Williams). Afterwards, Ashley Whittle, the producer, was telling me about a Buffalo chex mix she tasted while producing a TV show in Tennessee. She said it was so good that everyone kept coming back for more. Ashley shared it with me so I can now share it with you. (The video of my Fox 19 cooking segment is on my “Cooking with Rita” blog at http://news.cincinnati.com/opinion/blogs). And I’m finally getting caught up with your requests. See my “can you help “ section at the end of this article.

Rita’s Ohio buckeyes

I’m willing to bet there are more recipes for this than fingers on my hands. I like to share this in the autumn because that’s when you can find the glossy brown buckeyes that have dropped from the trees. My dear friend, Fran Nordman, and her daughter, Gabrielle, made almost 700 of these for Gabrielle’s wedding! I make the base mixture ahead, form into balls and freeze. They stay just fine for six months or so. You can divide the recipe in half or even double it. 1 pound peanut butter 1 ⁄2 pound butter, softened 1 tablespoon vanilla 11⁄2 pounds confectioners’ sugar 12 oz. semisweet, bittersweet or milk chocolate

COURTESY RITA HEIKENFELD

Buckeyes are a favorite treat this time of year.

morsels for coating 2 tablespoons shortening Blend everything but chocolate and shortening to make dough. Roll into 1inch balls. Put the balls into the freezer while melting the chocolate with the shortening. When you dip the chilled balls into the melted chocolate (let excess drip off) they start to set up immediately. Put on sprayed foil or wax paper to set.

22nd annual River Sweep poster contest starts Students in primary and secondary schools (public and private, K-12) are invited to design a poster for the 22nd annual River Sweep in 2011. Fifteen prizes will be awarded, including a grand

prize of a $500 U.S. Savings Bond. The school representing the grand prize winner will also receive an award. The 22nd annual River Sweep will be held Saturday, June 18, 2011. River Sweep is a one-day clean-

up project for the Ohio River and its tributaries. The Sweep covers nearly 3,000 miles of shoreline from Pittsburgh, Pa., to Cairo, Ill., and averages more than 20,000 volunteers a year. Trash collected during

the Sweep has included cars, tires, furniture, toys, a piano, and a variety of other items. All trash collected is either recycled or placed in approved landfills. The Ohio River Valley Water Sanitation Commis-

sion hosts the River Sweep is held to create an awareness of water quality problems caused by litter and illegal dumping. Posters submitted for the contest should reflect this goal and focus on encourag-

ing volunteer participation. The deadline for the River Sweep Poster Contest is Dec. 10. For more information, contact Jeanne Ison at 1-800-359-3977, or visit the commission’s website at www.orsanco.org.

Nagel’s Zimmerman is AD of year Nagel Middle School Athletic Director Steve Zimmerman was recently named the Middle School Athletic Director of the Year by the Ohio Interscholastic Athletic Administrators Association. He was honored during a banquet Oct. 3 at the Crown Plaza Hotel in Columbus. Zimmerman said he is very honored by the award. “It’s always wonderful to be recognized by your peers because they understand what the job entails and the highs and low that go along with it,” he said. While recognition isn’t exactly Zimmerman’s comfort zone, he said he is looking forward to attending the banquet with his family.

H i s daughters, Courtney and Hann a h , returned home from college for Zimmerman the banquet. His wife, Edie, son, Matthew, and parents, Nancy and Richard Zimmerman, from Michigan will were also present. This has been a year of recognitions for Mr. Zimmerman who earlier this year was named the Southwestern Ohio Athletic Directors Association Middle School Athletic Director of the Year. Zimmerman is in his ninth year as the Nagel athletic director. As athletic

director, he is responsible for 30 teams in nine sports involving 825 students and a coaching staff of 50. Professionally, he is active in the Southwest Ohio Athletic Director’s Association (SWOADA) as well as the Ohio Interscholastic Athletic Administrators Association (OIAAA). Zimmerman was elected as the seventh-eighth grade representative to the Southwest District Athletic Board in 2007. He is currently serving a second year as the statewide seventh-eighth grade representative on the Ohio High School Athletic Association Board of Directors. In 2005 Zimmerman

was selected as SWOADA Middle School AD of the Year. He also earned his Certified Athletic Administrators (CAA) certification in 2005 from the National Interscholastic Athletic Administrators Association. Zimmerman does an exceptional job of promoting middle school athletics and the values of sportsmanship, teamwork, ethics, and integrity that are fundamental to any middle school athletic program. Under his leadership, Nagel Middle School has earned the Ohio High School Athletic Association’s Harold A. Meyer Sportsmanship, Ethics, and Integrity Award for eight consecutive years.

It was a competition 27-year-old Mike Stone had been practicing for every Saturday in the pool at the M.E. Lyons YMCA and on his own in his community. In Lincoln, Neb., at the National Special Olympics games, before a crowd of cheering fans that included friends and family, he medaled in every event. Stone won the silver medal in both the 200 and 100 freestyle events, a bronze medal in the 100 backstroke event, and a gold medal in the relay. “The competition at the national level was a new experience for Mike. As always Mike rose to the challenge and showed his excellent swimming skills. The best memory I have is seeing the smile on Mike’s face the entire week. He loved every minute of this and the opportunity to make friends with athletes throughout the country is a priceless gift. I am very proud of him for winning four medals,” said Jean Ann Sisk, one of Mike’s coaches at the M.E. Lyons YMCA.

unconsciousness has been a source of great controversy in medicine and morality. The subsequent storm of events surrounding Nancy Cruzan (1990) and Terri Schiavo (2005) only serve to remind us that the question remains unresolved in the minds of many. This lecture will explore the extent of medical certainty regarding the condition of persistent unconsciousness and address the current state of Catholic moral teaching regarding the care of such patients.
