Public meeting for Winton Road widening set for Feb. 4 Jennie Key

Plans to widen Winton Road from north of Fleming Road to Sarbrook Drive are moving along, and Hamilton County Engineer Ted Hubbard wants to give Springfield Township residents a chance to hear about the project and ask questions. Preliminary engineering for the project investigated a number of altematives, ultimately recommending widening on both sides of the road. The proposed improvement includes widening the road to provide a center tum lane, which would mean five lanes in total. Hubbard said the county secured $2.5 million in federal Urban Surface Transportation Funds to help pay for the project; construction costs are estimated at $4.85 million. The widening will be designed in the area of St. Bartholomew Church and School, the Powel Crosley

YMCA and Millbrook Drive to accommodate left turns. Residents can come to the meeting set from 4:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 4, at St, Bartholomew Church, 9375 Winton Road. The meeting will be an open house format. There will be no formal presentation, but there will be information about the project, and opportunities to ask questions and provide feedback on what is being planned. Comments are encouraged, either during the meeting, or they may be submitted separately by Feb. 29, by sending them to the Hamilton County Engineer’s Office, Attention: Tim Gilday, 700 County Administration Building, 138 E. Court St., Cincmnati, Ohio 45202-1232. Preparation of detailed design plans should be complete by summer, with right-of-way acquisition, beginning this summer and targeted for completion in 2017. Construction is anticipated to begin in the summer

of 2018. Since the completion of a Winton Road corridor study in 2001, the engineer’s office has been tackling Winton Road from end to end. In 2007, the engineer’s office rehabbed and widened Winton from Reynard

Drive to Fleming Road. The rehab and widening from North Hill Lane through Reynard Drive, including the Galbraith Road intersection, happened in 2008 and the county finished rehab and upgrading traffic signals from the North

Have you checked out the library lately? Branches open doors to display host of programs, services Jennie Key

The word library immediately brings to mind a building full of shelves of books and smart, bookish people to help you find the one you want. Even the name contains the Latin work for book. But the library has expanded like a Narnian wardrobe in recent years. While there is still a building filled with books, the universe of services and information for which it serves as a gateway is expanding exponentially and at a dizzying speed. Greg Edwards, deputy director of the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County says that’s not likely to change. His library system, the fifth busiest in the country, according to the 2015 Public Library Data Service statistical report, handed out its 600,000th library card in August and circulated more than 18 million items through its 41 branches. Lots of those items were books, and he says books will always be at the heart of library services, but his libraries are offering a lot more these days to meet the needs of those 600,000plus card holders. Libraries can help patrons learn to download e-books and other electronic items and use ereaders. In addition to books, magazines and newspapers can be checked out in electronic form. Looking for a job? Your local library can help. Research for a school paper? Your local library can help. Need a computer to use for a couple hours? Try your local library. Homework too

Print and bind a book? Main Library’s MakerSpace. A makerspace is a place where creative people can gather, create, invent and learn.

mance computers, and software packages to complete projects. Patrons may come to libraries for WIFI, to use printers or to escape the cold, or charge their phone. If near a school, children may spend time in the library because it’s close and it’s safe. They know the library workers at their branch. They can get help with homework. Programs and services at the libraries grow from needs in the community. Edwards said the staff at the branches get a lot of feedback, and library systems share ideas with their colleagues. “We do card holder surveys, track trends among our users and demand drives some of the services we offer,” he said. Next on the horizon, the library will offer hotspots, portable WIFI that can be checked out from branch libraries by patrons. “They can be checked out and used at home or when people are on vacation,” he said. As the library acquires users, its directors and administrators are constantly checking to see what services they want and need. While Edwards said people think of books initially, libraries are places for community members to gather, to meet, to learn and do. “Outside our buildings look the same,” he said. “Inside, we still have books, but we have a lot more going on.” Local branches are in tune with the needs of the communities they serve. Ned Heeger Brehm, branch manager at the Groesbeck branch library, says the branches are groups into regions not by geography, but by the focus branch based on the patrons who most often visit the branch.

WHAT YOU PAY The Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County is partially supported by tax dollars. In November 2013, the voters of Hamilton County approved a 10-year renewal tax levy which will provide funding through 2024. The 1-mill property tax costs the owner of a $100,000 home $30 annually. In 2014, the levy generated about $18 million , which is about third of the library’s $56 million annual revenue. According to the 2014 annual report, the Hamilton County library received about $36 million or 63 percent of its funding from the state’s public library fund. Taxes represent 32 percent of the funding. Patron fines and fees account for just under $1.4 million or 2.4 percent and other revenue 2.1 percent.

Little doubt – people love their libraries We asked readers:

How often do you use your local library - and which branch(es) do you use? How do you use it - online, in person - and what are your favorite and most-used library services? How has your local library changed in the last 5-10-15 years? What changes do you see for libraries in the future?

Here are some responses: “I love, love, love the library. Mostly I go to the Monfort Heights branch or will give myself a treat and go to the main one downtown. I am an avid

chef and the library has a wonderful collection of cookbooks. If my branch doesn’t have the one I want they will arrange to have it sent to it. The type of books I like to read has it’s own special area in the downtown library. I’ve been exposed to more music styles just by browsing the CD music area. Also downtown they have the new Maker Space area. I took old cassette tapes there and transposed them into digital (I also did that with a VHS tape). “I have fallen in love with audio books and this past Christmas gave my grown son and my husband Kindles so they also can enjoy the books read

The librarians at Monfort Heights got that taken care of and helped him set up his Kindle with the library app. They go out of there way to help. “I attend lectures. I went over Christmas to see the Kenner display. I go specifically to shop at the Friends of the Library store. So ask me again how do I use my library? How do I not!” Christy Feldhaus, White Oak

“I love the Cincinnati Public Library. It is one of the best libraries in the country and a point of pride for me when I talk about Cincinnati. “My family uses the library nearly every day. My wife and I read ebooks checked out via Overdrive (the library’s ebook service). Being able to finish a book and check out a new one right away without leaving the house is a huge convenience and has increased our reading level and allowed us to try many new authors. “We visit the local Green Township branch at least once a week to check out books and DVDs with

our children. They also enjoy playing the computer games available at our location. My 8-year-old daughter recently got her first library card. She was extremely proud and excited to start using it. I was pleased that our library had two different kinds of cards for kids. The one we chose limits checkouts but has no overdue fines. An easy choice for parents. “I’ve been very impressed with the library’s ability to keep innovating. Over the last decade, the library has moved aggressively into digital offerings (Hoopla, Freegal, Overdrive,, etc.) that make it easy for library patrons to expand their mind and keep learning. The Maker space at the downtown library is an amazing place where patrons can get seriously creative. I don’t even know of another library that has such a cool feature. “Obviously I love our library. I hope it continues to be a leader for libraries well into the future.” Lewis Riley, Green Township

“I love the Cincinnati/ Hamilton County Library. We are so fortunate to have this award-winning organization at our disposal. “I am a regular at the Greenhills branch. I attend the monthly mystery book club meeting and my dog, Layla, is the therapy dog who does the Tales to Tails event once a month. “I pick-up books I have requested on-line. I utilize the favorite authors option on the website and automatically am placed on the waiting list when a new book is released. “I almost exclusively listen to rather than read books. If the audio book I want is not available locally I can search for it at other libraries throughout the state and it is sent to my local branch! “Every question or comment I have submitted via the website has been answered within a reasonable amount of See RESPONSE, Page 4A

His branch is in Region 1, Literacy and Learning, focused on early education, working to prepare youth in the community succeed in kindergarten with the goal of supporting all youth in succeeding in secondary and post secondary education. Other Region 1 branches include College Hill, Forest Park and North Central. Region 2, Readers, Viewers and Listeners, has a particular focus on new materials and new ways of offering access to a variety of formats for its reliable audience. Mount Healthy is in Region 2. The Green Township branch is among those in Digital, Region 3. The focus is cutting edge technologies, new digital formats and new programming for teens and young adults. Region 4, Lifelong Learners, includes the Greenhills and Monfort Heights branches. The focus is engaging traditional users with new services, finding new ways to meetin information needs online, in person or through other evolving gateways. Heeger-Brehm says the branch offers a va-

riety of story times, which help with reading readiness for youngsters. The homework program, which this year offers evening services from 6 to 9 p.m. on Wednesday evenings, is also a program that supports an important focus of his branch. And making computers and WIFI available is also important. Some patrons use the computers for job searches, some for school work, some for games. With the variety and increasing complexity of reading devices, Heeger-Brehm says his librarians do a lot of one-on-one work with patrons who want to know how to use their tablets or other reading devices to avail themselves of library services, and some people just come for internet access. In nicer weather, Brehm says it is not unusual to find one patron out in the courtyard of the area on a lawn chair using the WIFI before the library opens in the morning. “We are always trying to identify groups we are not doing much for, the ones who are underserved,” he said. “The question we ask is ‘what should we be doing that we’re not doing?’ We want to adapt our programs to the needs of our patrons.”

time. The branch staff are wonderful. No request is ever ignored. I may not like the answer, but I always get an answer. “I have friends who have moved and they always miss the quality library system they left behind. “There is no bigger supporter of the Cincinnati/Hamilton County Library than me. “I also utilize the Lane Library in Fairfield.” Maryellen Witte, Springfield Township

“My husband and I live in Finneytown with our five kids: 7-years-old, 5, 5, 2, and a 4-month old. “During the summer we visit the Groesbeck and Wyoming branches regularly, to participate in summer reading. I’m noticing that we do not visit as often during the school year. Our schedule gets busy, and I struggle to remember to find and return books on time. The library helps this by offering to put a limit on the number of books my youngest children can borrow, and then by not charging them late fees. I quit borrowing children’s movies altogether though: are usually they scratched, or they get scratched in our posses-

sion. “I notice interesting books at Kroger, and then go find them at the library for free! It’s fun to return from the library with a stack of books to sort through. Not only for pleasure reading, but also related to my hobbies. Last time I took my twin 5year-old boys to the library, the librarian offered to spread out on a table all the books on their favorite subject: tornadoes. My boys were in awe! “I use the library’s website a lot for one of my hobbies: family research/ genealogy. There is a whole category of links on there that offer wonderful resources for genealogy, and for Cincinnati history! “Since I’ve visited the Cincinnati libraries (close to 10 years now), I’ve noticed more computers, and everything is more user-friendly. The fines for overdue materials has been relaxed a little, and that certainly makes me more inclined to borrow. “In the future, I believe libraries will become even more tech-friendly. Perhaps they’ll lend out tablets and iPads, maybe with e-books pre-loaded on them. More libraries will include drive-thru windows, like the Groesbeck branch has. I remember seeing that a local librarian recorded herself read-

offer circulating video games, and I would not be surprised if Cincinnati eventually did, too, especially if they find a way to offer digital-only circulation that keeps costs and storage down and prevents patrons from stealing pricey games. I foresee digital circulation of CDs as well. I think libraries need to, and will, do more to market all the ways they can be used from home to help people save money on books, shows, movies, music, as well as classes for adults and programs for kids. “We love using our local library - it is an invaluable community resource, both in person and online!” Megan Haber, Finneytown

ing stories, which I think was intended for an Internet audience. I imagine much more of that in the future: classes and storytime via the Internet.” Amy Sellers, Springfield Township

“Someone in our family uses the library once a week or so. We typically use the College Hill branch, but occasionally attend special programs at other branches. “We use the library in person to pick up books and DVDs for all members of the family. We often order books on hold from the website or app and then pick them up. We really appreciate that service, as it saves time, although we also like to browse the children’s section for our kids, especially the new book display. Cincinnati has tons and tons of books, and it is nice to not be limited to just what’s at the local branch. I personally use the elec-

tronic check-outs a lot as well, using the library to access audiobook MP3s and e-books for my smart phone and Kindle, which is really awesome. This service means I can use the library 24/7, and it’s impossible to be overdue with electronic media, so no fines! “The library has expanded a lot of their electronic options and online presence, while continuing to offer the traditional programs, computer access, reading materials, and movies to patrons. I like some of the building improvements I have seen, where tiny storefront branches such as Clifton and Reading are getting new stand-alone buildings. A friend of mine in Reading has raved about the drive-through service at the new Reading branch, which is definitely a change from back in the day. “Some other libraries

“My daughter (2-yearsold) and I go to the Groesbeck branch of the library every Tuesday (story and Thursday time) (’Movers and Shakers’). She loves both programs and can't wait to go see her friends and Miss Lacey. I love it too; it gives us something to do and get out of our house a few times a week. They are a big part of our week. “I also get books for my first-grader to read for school. The library is the best place to get books for him that are at his reading level so he doesn't have to read the same books over and over. I also like to get books too. I will check out books I want to read and if they are available for my Kindle I'll do that too. “I often pick my books out online for both me and my son and then they are ready and waiting for me when I get to the library. My 2-year-old is always on the move so it's nice to be able to browse the books

online; instead of trying to look at books and keep track of her at the library.” Kimberly McCoy, White Oak

“Believe it or not, I am still a book and newspaper kind of girl and still subscribe to three daily newspapers. I check books out of the Northern Hills Library every single week and cannot stand reading on a tablet. “On vacation I am the girl toting library books to the beach - they have traveled coast to coast and to St. John with me. I have to have a book in my hands when I am laying in bed at night. “The NH Library still looks and smells the same as it did when I got my very first library card in first grade and attended Pleasant Hill school. That smell conjures up vivid memories of the special days we got to go to ‘Story Time’ at the library and sit in a circle while the librarian read to us. I did the same thing for my son when he was small - he would enter the book reading contest in the summer and we would go to the craft related activities too. Of course when the tree crashed through my roof during Hurricane Ike I used the library for work, since I was without internet service for more than a week.” Julie Whitney, College Hill

“I still use my local library (Clifton) to pick up books I've put on hold. I take my kids and we pick out books and they use the computer (if I allow it!). Like most families in Clifton, they know and love the local children's librarian, Mr. Eric (Davis). Julia Mace, Clifton

McAuley High School » Two McAuley High School seniors performed at the Ohio District Honor Band concert at Princeton High School. High school musicians must audition for this prestigious organization and attend three preconcert rehearsals. It is quite an honor to be invited to play with the Honor Band. Selections the Honor Band performed included Holst’s “First Suite in EFlat,” “Celtic Hymns and Dances” by Eric Ewazen, and “Our Yesterdays Lengthen Like Shadows,” by Hal Leonard. Anna Cadle, who plays alto saxophone, is the daughter of Jeff and Eileen Cadle and is an alumna of Sacred Heart of Jesus School in Fairfield. She intends to audition for all the possible ensembles and bands in college next year, including marching band. Cadle plans to major in graphic design.

monthly weekend camps until the travel to a move-in location for pre-tour. Pre-tour is the equivalent of a month-long band camp to learn the show and physically prepare the members for the challenges being on the tour present. Then, this summer, her group will take part in a summer tour, visiting various cities around the country and participating in competitions, which occur on football fields. Witzgalls group, the Boston Crusaders, will perform in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, and Texas. The tour culminates in a championship competition in August. More than 8,000 students audition for fewer than 3500 positions available. Witzgall will be playing the baritone. She is the daughter of William and Natalie Witzgall of Hamilton and plans to major in chemical engineering next year. Witzgall is unsure right now what her college will be, but, wherever she goes, she definitely plans to play in musical ensembles on campus. Witzgall is excited about this opportunity. She has been attending the summer drum corps shows since 2008 and said, “Music is my passion, especially marching band. The lessons I have learned in marching band affect every aspect of my life, i.e. discipline, not giving up, relationships with others, and even how I learn.” » Nine McAuley High School musicians will perform in the SWOCHB (Southwest Ohio Catholic Honor Band) 2016 concert Sunday, Feb. 7, at Seton High School.

Winton Woods Elementary School » There were smiles, hugs, and thank-yous for members of the Greenhills-Forest Park Kiwanis Club from third-graders at Winton Woods Elementary School as copies of the book “Stellaluna” were distributed to the students. This annual event means that all third-graders at the school receive their own copies of the hardbound picture book that tells the story of a bat who learns about friendship after being separated from her mother. “This is the seventh year we have had this project,” said Kiwanis Club member Jim Lawler, who coordinated the event. “During that time we have given away 2,200 books. Some years it has been ‘Stellaluna,’ and some years it has been the companion book, ‘Pinduli,’ both by Janell Cannon. There is a label in the book’s front cover saying this is a gift from the Green-

The GreenhillsForest Park Kiwanis Club has about 50 members and was founded more than 50 years ago. It is one of 10 Kiwanis clubs in western Hamilton County.

Gourmet Monday Night























Steak, truffles speak language of love I just loved the request Well, I not only have a from a Northern Kentucky recipe that looks like reader for a Valentine’s Day what she wants, I think recipe. “My husband keeps this one might be what talking about his mom’s Swiss his mom made. steak. All he remembers is I also wanted to share that she pounded salt and truffle recipes. What pepper into the meat with better way to say Rita flour, browned it and then “You’re special?” There baked it with tomatoes. It had Heikenfeld are two recipes: one for cheese on the top and was his adults and one for kids. RITA’S KITCHEN favorite. I would like to make Rita Nader Heikenthis as a surprise Valentine’s Day feld is an herbalist, educator, Jundinner for him. If you have a recigle Jim’s Eastgate culinary profespe that is close, I would really sional and author. Find her blog appreciate it”, she said. online at

‘I love you’ oven Swiss steak 1-1/2 pounds round steak, 3/4” thick 1/4 cup flour 1 to 1-1/2 teaspoons ea. salt and pepper 1 can stewed tomatoes 1/2 cup ea. chopped celery and carrot 1/4 cup chopped onion 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce or bit more to taste 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese


Preheat oven to 325. Cut meat into 4 portions. Mix flour, salt and pepper and pound into meat. Set aside flour that is left. Brown meat in oil or shortening on all sides. Don’t cook it, just brown it. Place meat in shallow baking dish. Blend remaining flour with drippings in skillet and add rest of ingredients, except for cheese. Cook, stirring constantly, until mixture boils. Pour over meat. Cover tightly and bake for 2 hours or until tender. Top with cheese and return to oven for a few minutes to melt cheese.

It’s that time of year - chocolate and Oreo truffles.

Elegant chocolate truffles 3 tablespoons light corn syrup 3/4 cup whipping cream, unwhipped 12 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped into very small pieces 1 teaspoon vanilla

In a small saucepan combine the corn syrup and heavy cream. Bring to a simmer and add the 12 ounces of chocolate. Stir until smooth. Remove from the heat and add vanilla. Pour the mixture into a container and place in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour until firm. Scoop chocolate using small ice cream scoop onto pan lined with parchment paper or sprayed foil. Return to frig until very firm.

Oreo truffles 1 pound package of Oreo sandwich cookies, divided (not double stuffed) 8 oz. cream cheese, softened 1 teaspoon vanilla

Coating: 8 oz. or so high quality melted chocolate, cooled a bit but still liquid enough to dip

Tiny sprinkles/nuts, etc. (opt) Remove the truffles from the refrigerator and shape into balls by rolling between the palms of your hands. Work quickly since the heat of your hands makes the chocolate soft. Dip each truffle into the chocolate to coat and place on wire rack for excess to drip off. Tip: for a quicker and easier truffle omit the chocolate coating and drop the shaped truffles directly into cocoa powder, nuts or coconut.

Coating: 12 oz. bag semisweet or bittersweet chocolate chips, melted and cooled a bit but still liquid enough to dip

Crush 9 of the cookies to fine crumbs in food processor. Set aside. Cookies also can be finely crushed in a plastic bag using a rolling pin. Crush rest of cookies. Place in bowl and add cream cheese and vanilla. Mix until well blended. Roll into 1” balls. Dip in melted chocolate and set on wire rack. Immediately sprinkle with leftover crumbs so that crumbs adhere before chocolate coating sets up. Refrigerate until firm. Store in refrigerator up to a couple of weeks.

Careers, happiness and furry friends “What breaks your heart?” I was at a conference and the speaker asked this question of the audience. In my work, I am accustomed to asking people what they are interested in, excited, even passionate about. But this question stopped me cold. Let me back up. I believe that when we limit our definition of our careers to just what we are paid to do, we miss the biggest picture; the opportunity to engage in the world with our full skill set and with our complete hearts and souls. If you enjoy coaching girls basketball, that is part of who you are and even it if it is purely a volunteer endeavor, it is a part of your unique career set, or your “big picture.” Take a minute and ask yourself what your total career is.

What does it include, and what would you like it to have more of? If you are an animal lover, and spend any Julie time or reBauke sources on COMMUNITY PRESS animal-related GUEST COLUMNIST causes, that is part of your career – part of who you are. I knew I wanted to do something to help dogs, but I also knew that was too broad of a desire. When a goal is too big or too vague, your chances of reaching it diminish, versus developing concrete, actionable goals. What breaks my heart? When I really thought about that question, I had an “aha” moment.

Strategies for winning the job interview Preparation is the key to winning in any event, including the interview. Knowledge and practice of each of the four interview styles will put you a step above your competition and at a comfort level to perform admirably in the interview. Listed below are the four types of interviews. The descriptions shown will help you identify them in the interview and focus your replies and questions accordingly. Note that you may gain access to the interview type or questions in advance from recently hired employees or online via websites like Regardless, you should be familiar with all types and train for each since you will likely incur a combination of styles from the interviewer.

between two equals. This can be identified by the interviewer not having a set script or list of quesDavid Shields tions to work COMMUNITY PRESS from, but GUEST COLUMNIST questions seem to naturally arise from the flow of the conversation. This impression is misleading as the interviewer uses rapport rather than structure to gain information from you. Remember to keep your concentration and appear relaxed, but focus on values, integrity and principles that relate to your character and those of the organization.

Behavioral-based interviews

Trait interviews are structured and person related. The questions are designed with the goal being to measure your personal characteristics such as aggression, discipline and friendliness. To plan for this type of interview, make a list of the things you do well by using words such as adaptable, perseverance and cooperative to describe yourself. Also, prepare to admit a negative trait if asked and redirect it in a positive manner explaining how you have improved in this area.

Behavioral-based interviews are structured and job-related. This is the most common type of interview process in use today by employers to evaluate your experiences and behaviors to determine your potential for future success. The belief is that past performance is the best indicator of future behavior. The questions asked will typically relate to your past and ask you about a specific instance such as, “Tell me about a time when you managed a conflict among employees.” In preparation for these types of questions, you will want to employ the STAR response (Situation-TaskAction-Result). To do this, you must anticipate the questions in advance (Google: behavioral interview questions) and have several examples memorized to be able to select and respond to the question. Practice these STAR responses with a friend so they flow and appear unrehearsed.

Conversational interviews

Conversational interviews are intuitive and job-related. This is an unstructured interview focusing mainly on job experience and skills, resembling a conversation

Trait interview

Gut-feel interview

Gut-feel interviews are intuitive and person related to see how you measure up to selected criteria. This interview is very subjective and general impressions are used to rule you in or out. The emphasis is on personal characteristics and you are evaluated on how much you are liked. While it is always good to be yourself, look to develop a friendly rapport with all interviewers. This emphasis cannot be underestimated. David Shields is the owner of Shields Career Consulting Services, inspiring others to think and plan their future with insight and imagination.

Senior dogs dumped at shelters because they are senior dogs. That breaks my heart. Now what? I know I can’t volunteer in a shelter. My emotions would not survive and I would live as a blubbering mess. I have tremendous respect for those who do. I give money, I get the word out, I work to connect people and resources. I have as many dogs as I can in my home. But still, I knew there was more I could do. When facing the empty nest, we decided that we wanted more dogs. I knew the number was not 50, but it also wasn’t three. We built a home on 15 acres and attached a senior doggie recreation room, dogs runs and a fenced-in yard. It is a place for eight senior dogs who were given up just for

being old, to live out their days in comfort and love. I knew we had done the right thing when we got our first resident: Mitzi. It’s no secret that the gray muzzle does not increase your prospects for being selected by shelter visitors. Maybe it was my imagination, but when I whispered in her ear that she was now safe, those tired bones took a deep breath and her whole body relaxed. Our world is not lacking in things to be heartbroken over. It can paralyze us into inaction or just the feeling that we can’t do anything that matters. There is no right or wrong answer to this question. I am constantly amazed by our community’s love for animals. Animal lovers are givers – and so are animals.

My Furry Valentine, a nonprofit organization that hosts an annual event to bring people and adoptable pets together, is a way that you can get involved. To date My Furry Valentine has found homes for nearly 2,000 shelter pets in the last five years. My Furry Valentine, the region’s largest annual animal adoption event, will be held on Saturday and Sunday, Feb. 13 and 14, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Sharonville Convention Center, 11355 Chester Road, Cincinnati, OH 45246.

CH@TROOM Jan. 28 question Who will be President of the United States one year from today? Why will he or she have won?

“One year from today we will be hailing the almighty and magnificent President Trump. I am not saying I agree with this choice, but it will be a matter of the majority of the population voting against the greater evil rather than for the best choice. I truly long for an election where we can in good conscience vote for the right candidate with passion and belief that he or she is the best and correct choice for the highest office in our society. Trump simply has too much momentum, media presence and too many faithful followers to be stopped. He is saying the things that too many of us feel need to be said, and which the other hopefuls are too PC to state. On the campaign side he doesn't require huge donations and is therefore beholden to none of the special interests. If nothing else, this election cycle so far has been good entertainment.” M.J.F.

“I think it will be Ted Cruz. Most of America will finally wake up and realize that health care isn't a right it is a privilege, that Christianity is the national religion, diplomacy is weak and bombing is strong and good, woman should cede decisions about their bodies and reproductive health to wealthy, white evangelical males, and every citizens duty is to be armed with an open carry weapon of his or her choice. I can relate very well to his populist story of attending common Ivy League schools, marrying a common Goldman Sach's executive and taking a job where you grind your place of employment to a standstill. For all these democratic and patriotic reasons I see him coming out on top next year.” C.S.

“One year from today, you arrive home excited because you met with your boss and he said due to increase in business, he was promoting you to manage the new employees. A nice raise comes with the job. The HR manager informs you health insurance is going down in price because of increased competition. “Then you think back , a year earlier the country felt like it was rapidly suffocating, No good jobs, increased health insurance premiums and a navy suffering

through a Third World country holding guns to their heads on their own ship. “Your choice, America.”


“Right now Democrat Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are the favorites for their parties. I think the Democratic nominee has that 47 percent of voters (Romney’s claim of those not paying taxes and/or on entitlements) in their hip pocket. Trump seems to have captured the American voters’ disappointment with leadership. He seems to have what the masses are looking for. I think that voter frustration will ‘trump’ Hillary’s very questionable track record. I hope Trump chooses wisely his VP, cabinet and advisors. He scares me, but I am naively optimistic he can right the ship. I look forward to their debates next fall as it could get ugly. Go Figure!” T.D.T.

Jan. 7 question What is the best way to handle the Syrian refugee situation?

“I read replies about the potential arrival of Syrian refugees into the U.S. I have a Koran and have read it twice. Americans do not have a clue about what an influx of Muslims into this country will cause! “The book depicts the hatred for all those who have not accepted Islam. Any Muslim that believes what the Koran preaches is a potential threat! The following is a reply to a young man who had an article in the Cincinnati Enquirer He never received it because what I perceived as being an email address was a Facebook address. I am not on Facebook. “’I read your article in this morning’s Enquirer and the first thing that entered my mind was:

5460 Muddy Creek Road Cincinnati, Ohio 45238 phone: 923-3111 fax: 853-6220 email: web site:

Have you taken the time to read the Koran? Ask yourself why isn’t the country bringing in Christian refugees? Is it because Obama favors Muslims because he was raised as one. Multiculturalism does not work! Angela Merkel, Chancellor of Germany, stated as much because of the influx of Muslim refugees into her country. The masses have caused assimilation problems.’ “England and France have the same problems with Muslim refugees. Many Muslims like Christians don’t read their Korans or Bibles and don’t go to a Mosque or church. Muslims that do go to a particular Mosque could be radicalized to commit jihad. Jim Hanson who is a part of counter terrorism (Center for Security Policy executive vice president) stated on O’Reilly’s hour that out of 100 mosques in the U.S. that were monitored 80 were preaching jihad. “The more Muslims that take shelter here and become citizens will add to the caliphate that is the head of the snake! There will be more mosques and minarets and the calls to prayers five times a day. Schools will be affected big time! And with a liberal supreme court Sharia law could be passed and men would be able to beat their wives and all that the book allows Muslim men to do. Women would be wearing burqas in public. Is this what you want to see in this country? “If you read the Koran you will see that it is based on the Biblical old testament. The narrative is twisted to bring about a faith that depicts Jesus as a prophet and not the son of God. Christians and Jews deserve death because they have not accepted Islam as the one true religion. No one knows who created the words of the Koran. Muhammad was illiterate and lived in and out of a cave because he probably had some mental issues. Would God send down Gabriel to give this man the words that depict death to all that don’t believe in Islam? I don’t think so! “SURA 47 - Muhammad: When ye encounter the infidels, strike off their heads till ye have made a great slaughter among them and of the rest make fast the fetters. Infidels deserve death! That includes you and me. The word infidel is mentioned 203 times in my Koran. American’s are illiterate relative to Islam and many like yourself are jumping on the bandwagon to bring them here!”

Froehlich, Crossty lead Mount Healthy wrestling Nick Robbe


Roger Bacon head coach Brian Neal thanks the crowd as he’s honored after the game with Fenwick Jan. 26. Neal became the winningest coach in school history with a 69-28 win at home.

Roger Bacon’s Neal passes Brewer for

MOST WINS Kevin Goheen Community Press contributor

ST. BERNARD - Peggy Brewer was superstitious when her husband Bill was coaching basketball at Roger Bacon. “I never wore anything with ‘Roger Bacon’ on it,” she said. “Whenever I did, they would lose.” Bill Brewer’s Spartans didn’t do a whole lot of losing, a trait that has continued in the 11 seasons that Brian Neal has been at the program’s helm. Tuesday night, Roger Bacon rolled past Fenwick, 69-28, in St. Bernard to run its record to 12-5 and give Neal win No. 171 at the school. It was a win that broke a tie with his mentor and made Neal the all-time winningest coach in school history. Brewer, who left Roger Bacon to coach at Princeton and turned things over to Neal, passed away in 2007 at the age of 42 of a heart attack. Peggy and 15-year-old daughter Maddy, now a sophomore at Ursuline, were front-and-center at the Fogarty Center Tuesday night. While Maddy showed no fear of a jinx by wearing a brown Roger Bacon fleece pullover, Peggy stuck to her triedand-true beliefs. “If anybody were to beat Bill’s record, I’m glad it was Brian,” said Peggy, moments after her and Maddy were a part of the post-game celebration honoring Neal’s accomplishment. “Brian’s been a great friend to Bill and, still the Roger Bacon family has been a great friend to us. Nobody can ever fill the hole that we have since Bill passed away but I love coming back here. I love all of the memories in this gym and I’m so happy for Brian.” Junior forward Justin Johnson, coming off a 42-point game in last Friday’s 81-71 double overtime win at Dayton Chami-

MT. HEALTHY - At the start of the season, Mount Healthy’s wrestling room looked a little bare. However, that didn’t stop the Owls from putting together a tough schedule. It’s galvanized a few wrestlers like Tobias Froehlich, Robert Johnson and Jamonte Crossty. Froehlich, a senior, emerged to the forefront as the team’s primary leader. Last year, he sat back and went about his business. He learned from the five seniors the year before and has taken to that leadership role. “He knows a lot is riding on him,” coach Stephen Butler said. “He’s coaching them like I’m coaching them. He’s out there before matches, telling other guys what they need to do. He studies the sport of wrestling. When it’s all said and done, I’m going to truly miss Tobias. He’s the best leader I have had in my eight years here.” Butler said he isn’t sure if Froehlich will continue to wrestle in college or just focus on academics. Whichever way he chooses to go, it might not be the end of the senior’s involvement with the sport. He could be the one with a whistle around his neck or clipboard in hand in a few years. “I could see him coaching whether it’s at the high school, middle school or even

with the youth program,” Butler said. “I could see him coming back and dropping some knowledge with the kids.” Crossty, a sophomore, seems to be absorbing every bit of knowledge he can. Butler said he’s picking things up quickly. At the Madeira Invitational last month, he bounced back from a loss in a big way. He went out, locked his opponent up in a cradle, his best and potentially favorite move, and stuck it. He took third in his weight class that tournament. The biggest thing Butler said Crossty needs to remember is keeping his composure. His maturity level has improved from the beginning of the season. “He understands what he has to do and how he has to stay composed in matches,” Butler said. “He used to be the type of guy who got frustrated when he got down points-wise. We’ve talked numerous times and said matches aren’t over until it’s zeros on the clock. He could be down 12-0, get a pin and end the match with a win.” Of course, both guys have some season left and plenty of things still to achieve. Starting with the Southwest Ohio Conference tournament, as long as they continue to take it one match at a time, good things can come. “For Tobias, Jamonte and Robert, my other senior, I’d say the sky is the limit,” Butler said.


Senior Tobias Froehlich, back, emerged to the forefront as the team’s primary leader and motivator. Roger Bacon guard Craig McGee shoots a jumper Jan. 26 against Fenwick.

nade-Julienne, led four Spartans in double figures with 16 points. Senior guard Luke Baker made three 3-pointers as part of his 11-point performance, a point total matched by junior guard Craig McGee and freshman guard Alec Pfriem. Roger Bacon scored the first nine points of the game and led 16-5 after the first quarter. Fenwick, which had won two of its last three games, never got closer than eight points the rest of the game. The Falcons fell to 7-7 overall and 1-6 in the Greater Catholic League North. Roger Bacon is now 5-2 in the GCL Central with an important game against division leader

Purcell Marian on Friday at home. Purcell Marian, ranked No. 9 in the Associated Press Division III state poll, won the first matchup, 63-61, in December. The Cavaliers are ranked No. 1 in The Enquirer’s Division III poll, while Roger Bacon is No. 2. “This is a big week for us because it’s a chance for us to win the GCL title, and what better way to start of the week than with a win that gives Coach Neal his 171st win,” said senior guard William Greene. “He always emphasizes to us to never let up.

Aiken girls make push for league title Adam Baum


Carolina Panthers middle linebacker Luke Kuechly (59) celebrates after beating the Arizona Cardinals in the NFC Championship game at Bank of America Stadium Jan. 24.

St. Xavier’s KUECHLY:

Cincinnati’s Captain America Adam Baum

SPRINGFIELD TWP. Cam Newton calls him “Captain America.” But, before the nation knew Luke Kuechly, he was Cincinnati’s captain. And in many ways, the 2009 St. Xavier High School graduate remains one of this city’s proud captains with or without football pads on. When Kuechly’s feet hit the field, under the lights of Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, Calif., in Super Bowl 50, he’ll not only be representing his team and a fan base – booming thanks to a pair of postseason pick-sixes – but also his family, friends and hometown. Luke knew it as a little kid. “When they’re little this is what they dream about doing,” said Luke’s mom, Eileen Kuechly. As Carolina mangled Arizona, 49-15, in the NFC Championship game Sunday night, Eileen heard a story from one of Luke’s childhood friends, Matthew Reilly, who lives and teaches in Charlotte. “(Matthew) said, ‘When Luke and I were 10 years old we were sitting in my basement … talking about, one day we’re going to be playing in the Super Bowl,’ and that’s what he’s doing for cryin’ out loud,” said Eileen. Luke’s living his dream. St. Xavier’s dream was slightly different, and not realized until much later. The Bomber blue community, their dream was to have a representative like Luke. His uniform’s fashioned with No. 59 and a very telling “C” – which might as well mean Cincinnati, or character, or any other number of words capable of describing Kuechly. “It’s pretty simple, Luke is a better human being than he is a football player,” said St. Xavier coach Steve Specht. “I think if you really looked at all the players in the NFL you are going to find that the majority are tremendous people who happen to be gifted football players. “Unfortunately we don’t get to read about all of those people.” Specht said we often hear more about the negative issues than the positive. “I guess that’s what I love

about Luke; it doesn’t matter if he wins a Super Bowl or is voted the defensive MVP, he will still be the same guy that wants to give his best and leave the world a better place than he found it. That’s the way he is and always will be,” Specht said. “Winning a Super Bowl ring would be great for Luke and the community, but how he carries himself is what continues to make us proud.” Kuechly is the fourth St. X grad to make a Super Bowl roster. Greg Scruggs (class of ’08) was inactive, but on the roster for the Seahawks’ last two Super Bowl trips. Pat Ross (class of ’01) played for the Seahawks when they fell to Pittsburgh in Super Bowl XLI. Currently, Rocky Boiman (class of ’98) is the only Bomber to play in and win a Super Bowl as a member of the Indianapolis Colts in Super Bowl XL. “Anybody who’s worn a football helmet for 22 years or 22 minutes, every kid has dreamed of playing in the Super Bowl and winning … it’s the ultimate reward,” said Boiman, who added it’s easy to see why Luke’s left such an impression on this community. “He’s the perfect embodiment of what St. Xavier’s all about,” said Boiman. “To who much is given, much is expected. For him to have that drive and to be as humble as he is and a man of the community. That’s what it’s all about.” Eileen also understands why Luke is so revered. “I do get it,” she said. “But then, we laugh too cause we know Luke. We see him at home and he’s still like a kid, too. He’s a thoughtful person and it comes from the people he’s been in contact with.” On Feb. 7, Luke’s parents and his brothers, John and Henry, who Eileen described as ecstatic, will watch Luke play linebacker in the Super Bowl. They love watching Luke play linebacker, but they love the man he’s become even more. “It has to be the man, because at the end this football will be done. What is he gonna be after that?” said Eileen. “If he is a good man, a man for others then I think we did a good job.”

COLLEGE HILL - When Kevin Grant took over as the Aiken High School girls basketball coach, he knew there were things he needed to change immediately. First, he brought discipline. If the girls lost their cool it would all-too-often lead to a loss. “Before I got here, Aiken was known as just fighting. I don’t have that problem,” said Grant, who’s in his second season. “The discipline has really made a difference for this team. We’re out there fighting to win the game rather than just fight.” When the Falcons’ attention turned to winning and learning, Grant noticed a change in mentality. “I had 45 girls come tryout for basketball this year,” Grant said. “That’s the most they’ve ever had. I think we’ll have more next year. We’re getting better. I’ve had referees tell me, from when they saw us last year, ‘that’s not the same team.’” When Aiken beat Western

Hills 44-42 Jan. 26, it gave the Falcons their seventh win in the Southern Ohio Public League. It also set up a showdown for the conference title against Hughes on Feb. 2, which occurred after Community Press print deadlines. Hughes beat Aiken 69-27 earlier in the season. “For them, that’s the most wins in the conference in a long time,” said Grant. “The last time Aiken was conference champions was I believe 1982. “Right now I’m trying to get them to understand the process isn’t done. We’re not where we need to be.” Aiken has four seniors, led by Dominique Porter, who averages 15.5 points per game (which ranks second in the SOPL). Grant said Porter plays hard, “She leaves everything out on the floor.” Seniors Dana Johnson and Kemiya Thompson have been invaluable, particularly in the painted area. Grant said he wished he had both for a couple more years. The Falcons also rely on a lot of youth. Mainly, sophomores Destiny Cunningham, who’s

learning to handle the point guard position, and Najae Thompson. Freshmen Lenesha Grant and Avonah Gray have the future looking bright for the Falcons. “My freshmen and sophomores are really gonna lead the future of this program,” Grant said. The Falcons have been dominant in the conference, winning seven of eight, but in non-conference games Aiken has struggled, going winless in eight contests. Grant said, “Outside the conference it’s like we’re not excited enough to play.” Grant believes that mindset will improve next season, just like it changed after his first year. “Last year when the season was over they couldn’t wait to get started again,” he said. “They’re looking at it like we already won more games than last year. “But we’re not done. There’s a higher goal.” Aiken still travels to Woodward on Feb. 4 and Amelia Feb. 8, then the postseason begins.

of the half makes or breaks the half.” Neal was an assistant under Brewer, including during the 2002 Division II state championship season in which Roger Bacon famously beat Akron St. Vincent-St. Mary’s and LeBron

James to win the title. He was also an assistant under Tom Singleton for the Roger Bacon girls’ team that went 28-0 and won the 1995 Division II state title. His record is now 171-94 and he has led Roger Bacon to seven league championships, five district titles and a regional championship two years ago. He was named the Associated Press Division III coach of the year in 2013.

“When we won on Friday (at CJ), I didn’t know that I had tied him,” said Neal. “Most of the things I learned in the basketball world I learned from two guys, and Bill was probably the most influential. I would say one of the most influential other than my father, who was a teacher and coach for 42 years. Obviously, a lot of my success was just growing and watching him do what he did.”

Energy bill scam duping customers nationwide Now a warning about an elaborate scam that tries to convince consumers their energy bill is overdue and needs to be paid immediately. Duke Energy says it is aware of this scam, that it’s shown up in five states, and that it’s not unique to Duke since it is happening to all utility companies through the U.S. and Canada. However, Duke says, complaints about this scam have doubled in the past year. In Greater Cincinnati a customer named Steve wrote me to say he received a phone call at the end of January from someone claiming to be from Duke Energy. “They told me they have a work order to shut off the electric to my business. I explained my case, thinking they were really Duke representatives, stating that my bill is current – and I checked online that everything was OK, that payment was received.” But, Steve writes, “They went on to say that it has not been received and they will do an investigation but in the meantime a payment must be made within one hour or the power will be turned off. I told them I can give them a payment over the phone and they said it’s too late for that, that I will have to go to CVS and make a payment of $946.” Steve says he ques-

tioned that amount since his last bill was only for $547. “He said it was Howard higher due Ain to reinstatement HEY HOWARD! fees. He gave me a phone number to call. I hung up the phone and decided to call Duke. They said everything was fine on the account-- and they don’t call anyway. They are looking into it,” Steve wrote. The number Steve was told to call began with 844 which is a toll free number not assigned to any particular part of the U.S. After learning the call was a scam he writes, “I took it upon myself to call that 844 number and it really does say Duke Energy with a menu selection. I pressed 1 and within two rings I did get a person that said, ‘Thank you for calling Duke Energy. How may I direct your call?’ This is a very high tech scam, others need to be alerted.” The scammer was trying to get Steve to put that $946 payment on a prepaid debit card. He would then call that phone number, to those pretending to be with Duke, and give them the numbers on that debit card. That would allow the scammers to get the

$946 immediately and get away without a trace. Duke Energy warns, “Prepaid debit cards are like cash and the transactions cannot be reversed. If a caller specifically asks you to pay by prepaid debit card, this is a red flag.” Duke Energy says it will never call and demand immediate payment without first sending you a notification by mail. In fact, it says it will send several notifications over the course of several weeks prior to electric service disconnection. Duke also says it will never ask for credit or debit card numbers over the phone. Duke says some customers have received emails claiming their energy bill is past due and instructs them to click on a link to pay their bill. It warns not to click on the link because that could result in a virus being downloaded onto their computer or lead of the theft of their personal information. Duke says it's working with law enforcement to try to stop these telemarketing fraud rings.

Local schools collect for NEEDS This winter, in preparation for the holiday season, students at Madeira Elementary, MontElementary, gomery Blue Ash Elementary, Sycamore Junior High, Greene School and St. Xavier High School shared their spare time and their best skills collecting for the Northeast Emergency Distribution Service food pantry as part of their holiday season ritual and their hard work hasn’t gone unnoticed. For the third year in a row and under the guidance of teacher Cheryl Thomas, the Greene School after-school club STRIVE delivered and put away a massive amount of cans. The Greene School students couldn’t wait to tell the NEEDS adult volunteers that one Greene School student donated his birthday money and bought 1,000 cans to donate. The Sycamore Junior High and Montgomery School Elementary brought two trucks worth of items. At the Nov. 23 NEEDS board meeting it was noted that the Sycamore Schools “really filled the pantry” and the board thanked them “for all their help.” The young men of St. Xavier are known for their strength and endurance. Each school comes with their own skills and each school enhances the pantry. Students who participate not only learn the value of volunteering, they come to understand the

concept of “shelf-life” when organizing the canned goods and they get a taste of how physically hard it is to stock food pantries. collecting Besides canned goods, every January the NEEDS board organizes a Hat and Mitten Drive. This year the hat and mitten drive will be at 9 a.m. Tuesday, Jan. 11, in the Fellowship Hall of the Kenwood Baptist Church, 8341 Kenwood Road. In addition to hats and mittens, socks are also requested. The hats, mittens and socks collected will be distributed to local schools. School nurses who then give the items to students in need. If your school, club, troop or neighborhood organization is looking for a winter activity, consider collecting hats, mittens and socks for NEEDS. New items are preferred and donations need to be at the Kenwood Baptist Church by 9 a.m. Jan. 11. The NEEDS Board is comprised of representatives from a community of 25 churches and civic organizations who take part in doing God’s work through caring for their neighbors by providing basic emerassistance. gency NEEDS board oversees an active food pantry that is located in the Baptist Kenwood Church and provides neighbors-in-need with housing and utility payment assistance.
