BECAUSE COMMUNITY MATTERS

Community is helping mother, son injured in Thanksgiving fire By Lisa Wakeland

lwakeland@communitypress.com

An Anderson Township family might get their ultimate Christmas wish – to be home for the holidays. It’s been a roller coaster month for Victor Peytchev and Elena Nikolova, two Anderson Township residents who escaped a fire Thanksgiving night at their home on Queensway Lane. It was accidental – flammable material left too close to the fireplace – but both suffered significant injuries. Nikolova had burns on her face and is slowly healing. Victor, a17-year-old Anderson High School student who is in wheelchair, was seriously burned on his face and hands. He’s spent much of the past month recovering at Shriners Hospital for Children in Cincinnati and underwent skin graft surgery on his hands. Doctors

initially thought Victor would also need a facial graft, but later decided he would not need that surgery. “Although I can see the light in the tunnel, I can tell that this particular tunnel is going to be a long one,” Nikolova said in a recent update shared with the community. “We will make it, of course, but I still need your support in prayers for the both of us.” Almost immediately after the fire there was an outpouring of support from the community. Laura Burger, director of caring and outreach for Anderson Hills United Methodist Church, where Nikolova and Victor are members, said everyone was saddened and upset about the news. “They had just moved into that house a few months prior, and it was almost created for Victor’s special needs,” she said. There was a group of women

Elena Nikolova and her son, Victor Peytchev, were both injured when their Anderson Township home caught fire on Thanksgiving night. Victor has been recovering from surgeries related to his burns at Shriners Hospital. They hope to be home by the end of the year. PROVIDED

who collected clothes to bring to Elena at the hospital and many others who wanted to know what they could do to help the family. At church the Sunday after the fire the congregation learned what happened and was told Sue Black, a close family friend, would be coordinating offers to help, said Susan Mahaney, communications director for Anderson Hills. “There were people lined up to tell her how they could help,” Mahaney said. “It’s really been a community effort.” An “Elena and Victor Fund” has been set up at U.S. Bank, and the church is accepting Kroger and Target gift cards for the family to help replace the items they need. While Victor’s medical needs are fully covered, Nikolova has a high deductible she must meet, and she couldn’t keep

HOW TO HELP » You can donate to the “Elena and Victor Fund” at any US Bank location. They will receive 100 percent of the donations. » The Anderson Hills United Methodist Church is accepting Kroger and Target gift cards, in any amount, to give to the family. Those can be dropped off at the church offices in the annex building, 7663 Five Mile Road. » Check the church’s website, bit.ly/ victorelena, for updates or more ways to help.

working as a nurse who does inhome care while Victor was in the hospital. The money donated to the fund will help cover mortgage and other payments as they recover from the fire and, as Nikolova put it, “resume some

kind of normal life.” Anderson High School also helped raise money for the fund by selling luminary kits and is asking the community to light those on Sunday, Dec. 22, to show thoughts and prayers for Victor. “I am so deeply appreciative of what the school, church and community have done for Victor and myself. Even the fitness club I belong to is helping,” Nikolova said in a statement. “It has meant so much to us during our time of need. We feel very loved.” Nikolova and Victor came to the United States seven years ago from Bulgaria. Victor had multiple operations when they arrived and now is able to use a “talker,” a computer he can operate with his eyes, to communicate with those around him.

Forest Hills voters could see tax-hike issue in ’14 By Forrest Sellers fsellers@communitypress.com

ANDERSON TWP. — Voters in the Forest Hills Local School District may see another taxhike issue on the ballot in 2014. The district recently posted an online evaluation of its buildings conducted by the Ohio Facilities Construction Commission. The study, which was recently completed, indicates a majority of the buildings are in need of renovation or replacement. To address these facility needs, board members have indicated a bond issue or levy may be necessary. Voters defeated a 1.86-mill bond issue request in May. If the bond issue had been approved, $47 million would have been spent on building improvements including renovations to all of the schools, with the ex-

‘Angel Lady’ of Anderson hangs ’em up Those who have visited Mercy Health – Anderson Hospital during the past 23 holiday seasons know the “angel tree.” Located just inside the hospital lobby, this tree has been dedicated each year to the hospital volunteers in honor of their contribution to the hospital. The “angel” who made

home as a keepsake and a thank you. This year, unfortunately, due to a change in regulations, Mercy’s volunteer office had to devise an alternate way to display the angels. They put them all on poster boards and created a display for all to see during the recent Volunteer Week lunches. The volunteers were still able to take home their ornament and also displayed them on their name tags before Christmas. Lane has created 23 unique ornaments, a new one each year. She has provided the supplies and the hours and hours of hard work to create up-

this tree possible all these years is Josephine Lane. Lane, a volunteer herself for the past 36 years, had the idea 23 years ago to create a unique ornament to decorate a tree to honor the volunteers. She decided on an angel because this is what the volunteers represent to the hospital. Each year, she crafted an original angel design from paper and other materials, cut out up to 400 ornaments, and calligraphied the name of each volunteer on an angel. These ornaments were then all hung on a tree and displayed throughout the holiday season. Each volunteer could later take their ornament

wards of 400 angels a year. It is a way of using her talent to express how important the volunteer community is to helping make the hospital such a special place. This will be the final year Lane will be creating the angels as she will be 87 in January and her hands just don’t function as well as they used to. Lane began her volunteering when Mercy Hospital was still in Mariemont, delivering Meals on Wheels. She has volunteered in a variety of capacities over her 36 years and all have been rewarding. But she will always be best known for being “the angel lady.”

Josephine Lane of Anderson Township is retiring after creating more than 9,000 angel ornaments in the past 23 years to honor the volunteers at Mercy Anderson.

A Hamilton County sheriff’s deputy was assaulted and injured after questioning a suspect in Anderson Township Dec. 18. The deputy stopped to talk with a suspect parked in the lot at Speedway, 5030 state Route 32, about his expired temporary tags, officials said. It was then discovered the suspect had an outstanding warrant and the deputy found a large amount of heroin in the 21-year-old man’s pocket.

Arthur’s opening new restaurant in Anderson ARTHUR’S IN ANDERSON

By Lisa Wakeland lwakeland@communitypress.com

A popular Hyde Park restaurant is opening a second location in Anderson Township. Arthur’s Café, which is near Hyde Park Square, plans to open next year in the former Red Chopsticks and Perkins building at 8221 Beechmont Ave. “We really feel like Anderson is missing good local, independently owned restaurants,” said B.J. Hughes, one of three owners. “Our customers and people we know who live out here have expressed and interest in us coming (to Anderson).” Hughes and his partners, Joe Santorelli and Susan Selzer, have owned Arthur’s for 16 years. They paid off the loan earlier this year and planned to spend this year scouting locations for a second restaurant, but the deal came through quicker than they anticipated. “We looked at several parts of town, but we always had sort of an affinity for the Anderson area,” Hughes said, adding both he and Santorelli went to McNicholas High School. Selzer and Santorelli live in Anderson Township, and Hughes lives in Union Township. “The greatest motivator, from a personal standpoint, is when you want to get together with friends or family there’s not a lot to choose from that has quality food with a full bar and a non-corporate,

Township restaurant will have a bar area with tables and a quieter dining room around the perimeter. “One of our goals is to bring as much of the Hyde Park ambiance out here to Anderson, and we’re super excited and so energized to do this,” Hughes said. “We hope we can make the area proud. We’re already involved in the community, and we hope the restaurant is a vehicle

for us to be even more involved.” Township Trustee Russ Jackson said he’s excited about Arthur’s coming to Anderson. “It’s quite a positive thing for the community,” Jackson said. “It’s not a fast-food restaurant, and that’s the big thing people keep saying.” Arthur’s in Anderson Township is expected to open in April.

Daughter of vet introduces dad

Bob Overbeek, a veteran and parent at Summit Elementary, speaks to the students on Veterans Day.

Tips for children on their holiday break Your child’s winter break is a good time for him or her to enjoy a vacation from the frenzied pace of the school year, but Huntington Learning Center says there are still plenty of opportunities for learning. “Holiday break is a great time for children to enjoy learning for learning’s sake,” says Deborah Sparks of Huntington Learning Center of Anderson Township. “Encourage your child’s inner explorer. Play games that are entertaining and educational. Get creative.” Sparks suggests several winter break learning activities: » Read, read, read. Hit the library and stock up on reading material – and help your child find books on topics in which he or she is interested. » Remember: Let your child read what he or she wants to during break, even if he or she chooses magazines or comic books. Try choosing a book together that you can read aloud as a family each evening. If you go with a bookturned-film, such as “The Lightning Thief” or “The Spiderwick Chronicles,” plan a movie night once you’ve all finished the book. » Go geocaching on a nice day. If your child gets a kick out of scavenger hunts, he or she may love geocaching, which is essentially treasure hunting with a GPS-enabled device. All you need is a smartphone with GPS and a membership to a site such as www.geocaching.com or

www.navicache.com. You can search by ZIP code and difficulty level to get coordinates to a geocache in your area. Geocachers hide a waterproof container with trinkets and a log book. » Learn a new game. What better time than winter break to learn a new game? » Games such as chess (check out www.chesskid.com) and bridge are known for their brain-boosting abilities. Word and number puzzles also are excellent learning games – especially when one has time to pass. Try Scrabble (or Words with Friends on a smartphone), Sudoku number puzzles and tangram shape puzzles. » Get crafty. Get out the craft supplies and have your child be inventive. » Make gift tags or holiday thank you cards. Turn a family story into an illustrated, handmade book. Create a family collage with pictures and mementos to display during the holidays. For more challenging projects, have your children make gifts for extended relatives. Peruse www.thecraftycrow.net or www.craftsforkids.com for inspiration. Winter break is a great time for students to recharge the batteries, but it also offers students something they do not have a lot of when school is in session: free time to explore their interests. “Encourage your student to expand his or her mind and learn something new,” says Sparks. “Winter break is the perfect time to foster those curiosities.”

SCHOOL NOTES Forest Hills on honor roll

The Forest Hills Local School District has been named to the fourth annual AP District Honor Roll. Forest Hills is one of 477 districts across the United States and Canada to receive this honor which is bestowed upon districts for increasing access to AP course work while simultaneously maintaining or increasing the percentage of students earning scores of three or higher on AP Exams. “We are pleased to receive this honor,” said Superintendent Dallas Jackson. “As a district we have worked hard to encourage our students to take AP classes offered at our two high schools and to subsequently take the AP Exam. We have also increased the number of AP courses of-

fered to 20. “Students can benefit two ways from the AP courses and tests. The rigor of the courses is recognized by colleges and universities. Students who score of 3 or higher on the AP Exam can earn students college credit.”

Positive forecast

Officials with the Forest Hills Local School District say the tax-hike issue voters approved in March 2012 will now sustain the district through the fiscal year 2017. Before the election, school officials said the tax-hike issue would sustain the district for three additional years, through fiscal year 2016. Treasurer Rick Toepfer said a revised five-year financial forecast shows the district projects to have a positive balance through the fiscal year 2017.

Summit Elementary School welcomed about 60 veterans at its annual Veterans Day ceremony on Nov. 8, where the students treated the veterans to songs and special readings. This year’s ceremony also included a guest speaker, parent Bob Overbeek. His comments were offered as his daughter read an emotionally charged essay about the special veteran in her life, her dad. She talked about Overbeek’s background and shared how much she missed him while he was deployed.

Overbeek was commissioned as an officer in the United States Air Force shortly after the attacks of 9/11. He told the audience that following 9/11 he felt the call to duty. He served in a variety of roles, including operational leadership, technical management, and executive staff assignments. In 2007 Overbeek deployed to Afghanistan where he served as the executive officer of the U.S. political-military affairs team. He is a recipient of the

Bronze Star for meritorious combat service actions during Operation Enduring Freedom. Overbeek also has a MPA from Harvard University and is currently a senior account executive at Orion International, America’s largest military recruiting and staffing firm helping transitioning service members and veterans find jobs in their post-military careers. He and his wife, Susie, live in Anderson Township with their four children who all attend Forest Hills public schools.

Patriotism and survival Veterans Day was recently observed at Nagel Middle School with two separate programs, one each for the seventh and eighth grade.

Lisa Isaack MacVittie speaks to the eighth grade at Nagel Middle School on Veterans Day. MacVittie served in the U.S. Air Force during the Korean Conflict. She is also a Holocaust survivor and member of American Legion Post 71. During her presentation she shared her memories of escaping Nazi Germany, about her life that followed, and patriotism.

Jim Spilman speaks to the seventh grade at Nagel Middle School on Veterans Day. Spilman served in the US Army Infantry from 1968 to 1970. He is a Vietnam veteran who was deployed from January 1969 to 1970. He talked to the students about his experiences in the military and about Veterans Day and patriotism.

Guardian angels and veterans Guardian Angels School students honored our veterans by hosting their third annual Veterans Day celebration. Students from Kindergarten through eighth-grade, the Guardian Angels Band, and choir performed songs, poems and readings based on history. More than 150 veterans and guests from the Anderson Township and Mount Washington area attended.

The St. Xavier Bombers are off to a 4-2-1 start despite a depleted roster through the first quarter of the season in the Southwest Ohio High School Hockey League. “We can’t keep all our players on the ice,” coach Adam Tramonte said. “Whether it’s a sickness or injury, we just never seem to have a full squad. … I just wish we could stay healthy.” While it may seem the injuries haven’t had much of an impact early on, things get complicated when you don’t have the same guys on the ice dayin-and-day-out. “I think we have the ability to be pretty good,” Tramonte said. “It’s tougher to become better when we can’t practice everyday with a full squad. We are always plugging guys in here and here in practice and then all of a sudden the next day we have a different guy over here.” One constant for the

Bombers has been the play of defensemen Taylor Fielman. The junior team captain has one goal on the season, but it’s his approach in practice and in the locker room where his impact is felt most. “He’s a heck of a defensemen,” the coach said. “Being a junior (being team captain) is a big responsibility but he’s definitely up for it and he’s probably one of our hardest workers too. It’s been great to have him around.” Fellow team captain Dan Pfeil is currently out with a wrist injury but is expected back within the next couple weeks. The third and final team captain is Chad Archdeacon, who is one of just two seniors on the Bombers’ roster. The senior has one goal and three assists on the season. “We are an extremely young team,” Tramonte said. “We are constantly working with kids who weren’t even on the team (last year). We were senior heavy last year and then we graduated seven seniors and you only carry 15 kids.”

Better serving veterans in the digital age Nearly 24 years ago, American leadership helped bring down the Berlin Wall without firing a shot. Now, our service members and veterans are up against a new wall, a wall of bureaucracy. This wall complicates nearly every facet of life as they transition from active duty service to veteran status. This Veterans Day, we must renew our commitment to those who have served us. Our task begins by ensuring that their medical records, which document years or decades of service, seamlessly follow them from uniformed to veteran status. The House of Representatives is taking action to push both the Departments of Defense and Veterans Affairs to realize this goal. Our troops face numerous challenges after they serve: transitioning to civilian life, finding a career

or continuing their education, to name just a few. Our veterans should not have to serve as couriers between the DoD and VA too. It’s an additional and unnecessary

burden. Our two biggest departments are still not fully capable of digitally communicating in the 21st century. Early in his presidency, President Obama charged these two departments to “build a seamless system of integration with a single goal: when a member of the Armed Forced separates from the military, he or she will no longer have to walk paperwork from a DoD duty station to a local VA health center; their

Hamilton Co.’s grand jury process If summoned for jury duty, you are assigned either to a regular jury or a grand jury. On regular (also called “petit”) jury duty you could be selected for a criminal or civil case. In a grand jury, however, a group of citizens hears only criminal cases and decides if someone will have to face trial for a felony offense. A felony is a crime that is punishable by at least one year in prison. Brad In HamilGreenberg COMMUNITY PRESS ton County, the grand jury GUEST COLUMNIST meets in the prosecutor’s office, not at the courthouse. The grand jury listens to testimony and examines evidence presented only by the prosecution before deciding whether to return an indictment. An indictment is merely a formal charge; it still must be proven beyond a reasonable doubt at trial before a defendant can be convicted. When the prosecutor presents a case, only the testifying witness and the grand jurors are in the room. After the last witness testifies, the prosecutor and witness exit the room so the jurors can deliberate and vote. Defendants may request to testify, but rarely do so. Nine grand jurors vote on each case and each charge. Before voting to indict, the grand jurors must find probable cause that: 1, a crime was committed, and 2, that the accused committed the crime. At least seven of the nine grand jurors must agree that there is sufficient evidence to return an indictment. A common phrase suggests that a prosecutor can convince a grand jury to indict a “ham sandwich” because of the process’s one-sided nature. My prior experience as a prosecutor makes me disagree. Although a few prosecutors may abuse the system, most prosecutors have no interest in purposely indicting cases that

would be hard to try. Moreover, I have observed that grand jurors, like regular jurors, are independent, serious about their duties, and not easily persuaded to indict an obviously weak case. A unique and important aspect of grand jury service is the oath of secrecy. The oath of secrecy covers the entire grand jury proceeding and is permanent. A regular juror may discuss a case publicly after a verdict is announced in open court, but a grand juror must keep the proceedings secret forever unless ordered otherwise by a judge. Both grand jury and regular jury service last for two weeks in Hamilton County. If selected for grand jury, you will hear approximately 50 cases each week. In comparison, most regular jurors sit on only one or two cases at most. Perhaps its unique process makes most people who have served on both regular and grand juries prefer grand jury service.

electronic records will transition along with them and remain with them forever.” This vision has devolved into a series of missed milestones, shifting priorities and ballooning budgets. The House Veterans’ Affairs Committee learned earlier this year that these failures have led President Obama and both departments to abandon the original goal of one system, and instead plan continued reliance on separate systems integrated together to connect electronic health records. I served as an Army combat surgeon in Iraq and still serve as a Reservist. I know that my fellow military members, when they retire, should not have to continue to wage war at home against bureaucracies and paperwork. And yet, a doctor treating veterans cannot seamlessly access the medical history of their patient because that

seek care, and full integration is steering the departments in the right direction. Fully integrating these electric health records isn’t just about helping transitioning veterans, it’s also essential to reducing our veterans’ disability backlog. We know that fully developed disability claims, those with complete medical history files, take half the amount of time to complete compared to claims filed with incomplete or missing data. It’s discouraging for our troops, our veterans, and our doctors to face a wall of bureaucracy that hinders care. They deserve a lasting solution that honors their legacy and service.

CH@TROOM Last week’s question Time magazine has named Pope Francis as its Person of the Year. What do you think of the choice? Whom would you choose as Person of the Year?

“Pope Francis as ‘Person of the Year’ from Time is a great choice; he’s liberal minded and humble – more Catholics should follow the example!” TRog

“I think Pope Francis was an excellent choice. Of course I may have some bias as I was partially trained in the Jesuit way which encourages critical thinking. “This Jesuit is in the best tradition of that order, service to others. He has quickly steered the Catholic Church back towards where it belongs, which is the tending to its flock. “Since I am an Orthodox Agnostic, I am not concerned what happens to the church for my own sake, but it does make me feel wonderful when a leader of such a huge congregation shows and demonstrates love and goodwill to all.

ABOUT LETTERS AND COLUMNS

history is housed in a separate Defense Department system. VA doctors report that initial steps are improving this digital sharing, while still on separate systems. The House of Representatives is working to tackle these issues through the bipartisan H.R. 1960. Important sections call for basic interoperability capabilities within a year, meaning that doctors on both sides will be able to readily view medical history files. By 2016, we are demanding full system integration between the two departments. These are essential steps towards realizing a system that seamlessly communicates medical history files between the departments, without forcing the burden on to the shoulders of our transitioning veterans. Ultimately, I believe one system will best serve our troops and veterans as they

“Just hope that other religious and secular leaders in this world will do the same.” J.Z.

“Perfect pick. He represents humility and service to others, an example to all people of all faiths or no faiths.” T.B.

“I do not think that the pope would be my choice for man of the year. Honestly, I can’t think of anyone who is deserv-

ing of that honor, if it really is an honor anymore. Some of the selections in the past have been horrible. “Maybe I should nominate myself as I have had a pretty good year, I didn’t kill anyone, rape or maim anyone and probably have lived as honorably as the pope. Whether it is under this pope or the next I am afraid he will give in on homosexuality and abortion. I would never allow this if I was running the church.” Dave D.

“Time’s Person of the Year no longer has much significance. Weekly news magazines peaked years ago and no longer have the impact they once enjoyed. “My primary source of news is TV, but I rely on the Cincinnati Enquirer to get the details. The same is true of the Forest Hills Journal when it comes to eastside news. “To wait one week for news of national and global importance, even if it is in-depth news, is old-fashioned. Ditto for the concept of naming a person of the year.” R.V.

LIFE

DECEMBER 25, 2013 • FOREST HILLS JOURNAL • B3

Eggplant casserole good for entertaining I’m going to have to make sure I put makeup on before going out to the grocery or retail store. The past couple of times I was at these places, readers stopped me to chat. Both times I was planning on running in and out quickly so I didn’t bother with makeup, only a bit of lipstick. Well, I had to laugh afRita terward at Heikenfeld my vanity. RITA’S KITCHEN (Why did I think no one would recognize me “au naturel”?) It’s times like those that keep me humble! I wanted to let each of you know how much I’ve appreciated the caring and sharing that happens each week through this column. Happy New Year! I hope 2014 brings many blessings to your home.

Bob and John’s eggplant casserole

Reader John Pancoast sent this, which is now a favorite for entertaining at his and wife Priscilla’s home. “From friend Bob Martin of Loveland,” John said. John added fresh, coarse dried breadcrumbs on top for extra crunchiness. I’m looking forward to making this myself. John said if you use a 9-inch by 13-inch pan, you’ll get more crunchy top surface area.

1 large eggplant, peeled and cut into 1⁄2-inch cubes 1 sleeve of Townhouse crackers (about 40 crackers), crumbled coarsely 1 cup whipping cream 8 oz. shredded extra-sharp cheddar 1 tablespoon lemon juice (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Heat six cups water to full boil in large pot. Add lemon juice if desired (some think it keeps eggplant from darkening). Add eggplant to boiling water. Stir eggplant frequently, it will be floating on top of water. Cook just until water starts to return to a boil, about three minutes. Do NOT overdo this step or eggplant will become rubbery! Drain and transfer to sprayed two-quart casserole. Sprinkle crackers on top. Pour in cream and add cheese. Stir until blended. Bake uncovered for 1 hour or until it starts to brown on top and gets a little crusty around edges.

Priscilla Pancoast’s easy corn pudding

Another Pancoast favorite. Let me know if you want this recipe. “Everyone who tastes it wants the recipe,” Priscilla told me.

No-fuss standing rib roast One of the meat cutters at the grocery told me he has success with this holiday roast every time he makes it. Gosh, a

pretty good testimonial coming from him. Searing the roast on the outside at a high temperature insures a moist inside. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Season raw roast as desired. Place rib side down in a pan and roast 10-15 minutes. Careful here, you may get some splattering. Reduce oven temperature to 250 degrees and roast until thermometer reads about 125 for rare or up to 145 for medium. The roast continues to cook at least 5 degrees more when it’s out of the oven. Let it rest, tented loosely with foil, for about 20-30 minutes before carving.

Caribbean citrus salad dressing

I really like this for a holiday buffet. Let guests drizzle on top of salad made with mixed greens. This can be made several days ahead. If you have some fresh parsley, toss a bit in. Taste before adding salt and pepper. Whisk together: 1 cup mayonnaise 1 ⁄2 teaspoon garlic or to taste 1 tablespoon honey 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard 2 tablespoons olive oil 1 ⁄3 cup orange juice concentrate, thawed, or to taste

Brunch egg casserole with sausage, potatoes and cheese

Nice for that New Year’s day brunch. Sauté sausage ahead of time

John Pancoast displays his eggplant casserole.THANKS TO JOHN PANCOAST.

and bring to room temperature before continuing. 1 pound hot pork sausage or your favorite, cooked 3 cups frozen hash browns, thawed completely 12 oz. shredded cheddar 12 large eggs, lightly beaten 2 cups 2 percent milk or whatever you have

Salt and pepper

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place hash browns in sprayed 9-inch by 13-inch pan. Top with sausage and cheese. Whisk eggs milk and seasonings and pour on top. Bake 50-60 minutes until somewhat puffed and golden. Toothpick

inserted in center should come out clean. Rita Nader Heikenfeld is an herbalist, educator and author. Find her blog online at Cincinnati.Com/blogs. Email her at columns@communitypress.com with “Rita’s kitchen” in the subject line. Call 513-248-7130, ext. 356

On December 17, Kathy Labrecque, and Trisha Roat with the M.E. Lyons YMCA loaded up a van and delivered items collected to the second grade class at River View, along with some special holiday treats. THANKS TO KATHY LEHR

Giving abounds at YMCA Staff and members at the M.E. Lyons YMCA in Anderson Township recently collected toys and supplies for River View East Academy in Cincinnati, the Marines Toysfor-Tots, and the Wish Tree program. The Lyons community also collected 65 pairs of gym shoes to send to needy children and families in Ghana. “This is truly what Christmas is all about,” said YMCA Group Vice President Bill Powell. “I am so touched by the generosity of this community to help others who are less fortunate.” The M.E. Lyons Afterschool Program at Wilson Elementary took part in the adopt-a-class program, providing love and support to an area elementary school. The chil-

dren also became penpals with second grade children at their “adopted” school River View East Academy in Cincinnati. Kathy Labrecque (YMCA site coordinator at Wilson) helped put her kids plans into action by putting together power packs and gift bags for the second grade class that included non-perishable food items, hats, gloves, and a few toys. On Dec. 17, Labrecque, Samantha Mosby (senior program director)and Trisha Roat (child care staff) had the privilege to deliver all of these goodies and some Christmas treats to the second grade class at River View. Lyons YMCA Group Exercise and Wellness Coordinator Susie Ryan is collecting gently used athletic shoes in a box out-

side of the Fitness Center. Through MORE (Modular Organic Regenerative Environments) Foundation Group, these shoes will be sent to Ghana to help empower families lift themselves out of poverty. They are accepting athletic shoes in sizes seven through 11 only. Staff and members at the M.E. Lyons YMCA received a visit and lunch provided by some of Santa’s elves as a thank you for collecting over 160 toys for the annual Marines Toys for Tots, the most items collected at any YMCA of Greater Cincinnati. The YMCA collected a total of 400 items for the drive this holiday season. The Y has also participated in the Wish Tree Program for the past decade.

in Cincinnati’s Spanish-speaking community, who do not have the option to attend a Spanishlanguage service with an approach like that offered by the United Church of Christ . According to Faith UCC member Sonia Morales-Matos, “There have been some efforts in the vicinity to establish Spanish ministries but the growing and diverse Hispanic population with its many cultural differences, is seeking alternative ways of worship that meet their spiritual journey.” Faith UCC’s more traditional service is Sundays at 10:15 a.m. The two congregations will have the opportunity to gather as one for refreshments and fellowship in between the two services. According to the church’s pastor, Rev. Kay Young, “The mingling of congregations will be symbolic of the UCC’s motto, ‘That They May All Be One.’” Faith UCC and Rev. Young are working closely on this project with Persida Rivera-Mendez, NationalUCC minister for multiracial and multicultural transformation.
