A guideline for Springfield Township’s future is one definition officials have of the Neighborhood Master Plan. Residents have had several opportunities to see and comment on the proposed plan, including a March 30 public hearing. Trustee Gwen McFarlin said trustees likely won’t consider adoption of the plan until their May meeting. The plan was developed by township staff and a volunteer committee of some 75 township residents. Administrator Mike Hinnenkamp said the detailed document includes recommendations on township policy and services, as well as proposals for land use and development. Recommendations, some of which already have been implemented, include: • address the ordinance to identify a potential vicious dog and add a kennel to house dogs prior to SPCA pick up; • adopt the interior rental property inspection program and use existing staff; HEIDI FALLON/STAFF • continue the elimination of brush pick-up Matthew Dauterman, 11, spent one day of his spring break from school accompanying his mom, Angela Woerner, to one of two open service except for emergency situations; houses unveiling the Springfield Township Neighborhood Master Plan.

Winton students trade pennies for pasta By Rob Dowdy rdowdy@communitypress.com

Students at Winton Woods Middle School are hoping their loose change can earn them a pasta party, and do some good for leukemia research. For the 12th year, the school is participating in the Olive Garden Pasta for Pennies program, which raises money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Students have been donating change for several weeks, and the class that collects the most money will receive a lunch catered by Olive Garden restaurant. Joyce Shaffer, media specialist at the school and coordinator for the program, said students have nearly reached their goal of collecting $1,000 in the days before the deadline.

Winton Woods seventh-grader Charity Moss donates a dollar to the “Pasta for Pennies” program, which benefits the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. The school is hoping to raise $1,000 for the group.

She said bigger donations trickle in as students are hoping to raise the most money and help a worthy cause as well. “They work pretty hard for that,” Shaffer said. Seventh-grader Cherish Moss said she’s been helping her mother with the laundry and other chores to earn money she then donates to Pasta for Pennies. Seventh-grader Anthony Green said while winning a catered lunch would be great for his class, he’s been donating money for approximately three weeks because he knows of several people who had or have cancer. “I’m really doing it for people with leukemia,” he said.

Along with collecting display items, the society interviews older residents. “We like to talk to them about their memories and get it all down on paper,” said Linda Thinnes Braunwart, society public relations. “Once they’re gone, so

are their recollections. It’s so important to have their memories of the city’s history.” Braunwart said the society is grateful to the North College Hill City School District for allocating the space. The society’s space is on the second floor of the former school, now being used for school district administrative offices and the Passages art gallery. “This used to be my kindergarten room and I can remember sitting here in one of the little desks cry-

ing,” Braunwart said with a much happier face. “We’re very proud of all we’ve amassed and we love to share it.” The society meets the last Saturday of the month at 11 a.m. in Room 1 of the former school. “We have guest speakers and special programs, take field trips and publish a newsletter twice a year,” Speckman said. The society is planning a walking tour of the city Sunday, June 5. It will start at 2 p.m. at Goodman School and take folks on a 1.3 mile trek to six points of historical interest.

Did you know A few snippets from North College Hill’s past include: • Lou Groen, a 1935 NCH High School graduate, owned the first McDonald’s in Cincinnati in Monfort Heights. He’s also credited with creating McDonald’s fish sandwich, which originally sold for 30 cents. • Richard Hesterberg, class of 1953, discovered a new species of butterfly in 1983 in Costa Rica. The Adelpha hesterbergi butterfly is named in his honor.

• Tom Nieporte, a former Meis Avenue resident and 1947 NCH graduate, won the Bob Hope Classic golf tournament in the 1960s and made several appearances on “The Tonight Show” with Johnny Carson. • In the 1940s, if you were waiting for a bus at Savannah Avenue and North Bend Road, you could leave your soggy boots at the bus stop. They reportedly would be there, still wet, when you returned. • The North College Hill

Historical Society’s newest space is in the district’s oldest building, built in 1922. In 1960, it housed a public library and was bought by a Baptist church in the 1980. The school district bought it back in 1998 and converted it back to a school. • The LaBoiteaux Cemetery, the corner of Hamilton Avenue and West Galbraith Road, named for Peter LaBoiteaux, has two Revolutionary War veterans buried there.

Springfield seniors to offer repair services

Forest Park offers savings on summer camps

By Heidi Fallon

rdowdy@communitypress.com

hfallon@communitypress.com

Hoping to make a bit of money while helping folks in need of minor repairs, the seniors who use the Springfield Township wood shop are offering their expertise. Thom Schneider, senior/community services director for the township, said the senior center budget has fallen victim to necessary funding cuts as the township continues to make cutbacks. "With the loss of revenues to the township, we need to find other ways to fund our programs," Schneider said. Mike Boback, a senior center member and skilled wood carver and craftsman, came up with the idea to offer his and fellow wood shop users their services. "Mike is one of our many seniors who is always thinking of ways to help out," Schneider said. Boback said they will consider a variety of fix-up and repairs. He said things like fixing chair legs, drawers and dart boards are a few of the projects they've already tackled. "The price will depend on the size of the job and time it takes," Boback said. "We'll consider anything that can be brought to the center." The money they make will be used to buy wood shop materials and pay for repairs to the saws and other tools lining the room at the center. Boback also makes sure

By Rob Dowdy Parents in Forest Park can breathe a little easier knowing summer camp may not cost as much as they anticipated. The city is offering Forest Park and Greenhills residents a 50 percent subsidy if they choose from a selection of camps offered by the Hamilton County Park District or the Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Gardens. The subsidies will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis. Wright Gwyn, Forest Park Environmental Awareness Program director, said the subsidies are for day camp experiences that primarily feature nature and are designed for children age 4 to 14. “I want to make sure children can do something environmental in the sum-

They should make

sure to get a receipt, fill out the scholarship application found on the city’s website and submit the form with the receipt. He said once the city has confirmed the child attended the camp, reimbursements will be sent out in September. Susie Edwards, naturalist manager for the Hamilton County Park District, said while the subsidies are only for a select number of summer day camps, there’s still a wide variety for most ages. “There’s something for everyone,” she said. Edwards noted several of the more popular camps, such as “Habitat Explorers,” which has children exploring Sharon Woods while learning about wildlife and nature, are filling up quickly. She said registration for many of the camps began in January.

First-year robotics team finishes strong

The Winton Woods High School robotics team recently placed 11th out of 32 teams at the iSpace Robotics Competition at Scarlet Oak, It was the team’s first year participating in a robotics competition. “I think it is incredible that Winton Woods finished in the top one-third of all the teams competing,” event organizer Linda Neenan said. “I am so proud of them for their performance on and off the field. They are a great example of a team that struggled with a slow start, but through hard work and determination made a great showing at the tournament.” Members of the team – Darell Ballew, Raheem Elston, Samantha Fishwick, Courtney Irby, Donavan Myers, Austin Ottaway and

Lejon Scott – are from the high school’s Principles of Engineering class taught by Great Oaks Project Lead the Way teacher Myrtis Smith. The class is the second in the Project Lead the Way engineering program. “The First Tech Challenge was announced to the class in September 2010,” Smith said. “Students who were interested began staying after school three days a week to work on the robot and received extra credit for second and third quarter for their work.” The team then attended a kick-off workshop in October. “Here we got more information about the competition, saw the playing field, met other teams and began working on the robot,” said Smith. “From November

through February the team met three days a week after school. Preparation included two field trips to Scarlet Oaks to work on the test field to modify the robot.” The students were also assigned a mentor, Keith Ledgerwood, who is an engineer at General Electric. Ledgerwood helped with the computer programming and design ideas. “The First Tech Challenge was a wonderful opportunity for the students,” said Smith. “Not only did they learn about robotics and computer programming, but they also got experience in teamwork, project planning and problem solving. These are skills that will help them in the classroom, at college and in the workforce. I am very proud of my students.”

La Salle track ranked No. 1 in the city

By Tony Meale

Roger Bacon

tmeale@communitypress.com

North Bend Road is home to not only the best basketball team in the state, but also – according to the city poll – the best track team in Cincinnati. The La Salle High School track team, which last year won the Greater Catholic League South division and a district championship, looks loaded again. The Lancers return six all-state performers, including the 3200 relay team consisting of seniors Travis Hawes, Ethan Bokeno, Kevin Kluesener and Alex Thiery. Hawes and Bokeno also qualified for state in the 1600 and 800, respectively. Seniors Rodriguez Coleman and Andrew Silber also placed at state last year, with Coleman taking seventh in the 110 hurdles and Silber taking eighth in the pole vault. Returning regional-qualifiers include seniors Daniel Scott (4x400), Tyrin Nelson (4x100), Antonio Nelson (100, 4x100) and Jesse Beck (shot put, discus), as well as junior Cam Pankey (4x100) and sophomore Jaleel Hytche (400, 4x400). Frank Russo enters his 27th year as head coach at La Salle, which he has led to 14 league titles, 13 district titles, 11 city championships, three regional titles, one state runner-up finish (2008) and one state crown (1994).

Finneytown

Other schools

The Wildcats, which won their third consecutive Cincinnati Hills League title last season, will be led by senior thrower Donovan Clark, a returning statequalifier in the shot put and discus. Finneytown also returns a wealth of talent with regional experience, including sophomore two-miler Alex Hughes and the entire 4x400 relay team – comprised of seniors Julian Jones and James Howard and juniors Akram Ndamba and Mark Clayton. Finneytown finished runner-up to McNicholas at districts last season.

Scarlet division last year and hope to sustain that success in the FAVC-West. They return a pair of regional-qualifiers in senior sprinters Brent Gray (400) and Vince Turnage (200), both of whom perform in the 4x200. Senior Keonte Williams, meanwhile, was league runner-up in the 100. Promising newcomers include sprinter Tyree Elliot and jumper Demond Jackson. “We have a lot of experience returning and look to go far in the (postseason) this year in certain events,” Mount Healthy head coach Craig Eckstein said. The Owls finished fifth at districts last year.

North College Hill

The Trojans are slated to return all four legs of their 4x100 relay – juniors Markell Ector and Josh Combs and sophomores Tevi Brown and Lamar Hargrove. Hargrove also excels in the 100 and 200.

Roger Bacon finished runner-up to McNicholas in the Greater Catholic League Central division last year, and the Spartans figure to be strong once more. They return reigning GCL-Central Runner of the Year Jourian Austin, who won league titles in the 100, 200 and 400 as a junior. Senior Gavin Schumann, meanwhile, hopes to build on an eighth-place finish at state in the high jump. Promising newcomers include freshmen Eli Nixon and Joshua Johnson-Clark. Roger Bacon is coached by Michael Braun.

St. Xavier

Last year, the Bombers finished second to La Salle in the GCL-South and second to Mason at districts. St. X, which enters 2011 ranked third in the city behind those same two squads, returns seniors William Sherman (100, 200, 4x200), Tim Bryson (4x200), Eric Freeman (4x200), Shomo Das (800), Andrew Bachman (800), Robby Flannigan (1600), Jack Woodall (shot put, discus) and Ryan Schneiber (shot put, discus), as well as junior Isiah Waldon (long jump). The Bombers, coached by Oliver Mason, finished 12th at regionals last season.

Back from the 400 meter relay team are senior Thomas Owens, junior Marcus Jackson and junior Aaron Kemper. Jackson has 100 and 200 times of 11.7 and 22.9, while Kemper’s 100 time a year ago was fifth best in the league. At middle distance, junior Kawaune Coleman ran a 52.6 in the 400 last season, senior Mike James handles the 800, while sophomore Mike Higgins is the 1600 and 3200 specialist. In the high jump, senior Chuck Wynn went 6’ 1.5” last year. For the girls, returning from their top-ranked 400 meter relay is junior Ashley McCaster, sophomore Taylor Johnson and sophomore Dominique Harper. Harper runs pretty much everything with a 13.55 in the 100, 26.13 in the 200 and 1:02.28 400 from 2010. Sophomore Tiasia Cockrell also is multi-faceted running in the 800 relay, while returning as the Warriors best returning long and high jumper.

Coach Pfeifer leads loaded Mohawks By Tony Meale tmeale@communitypress.com

The McAuley High School track team enters the season ranked third in the city poll, which can only mean one thing. The teams rated ahead of them – Mason and Withrow, which are first and second, respectively – must be really good. The Mohawks return one of the nation’s top runners in junior Danielle Pfeifer, who last year finished third at state in the 800. According to head coach Ron Russo, Pfeifer’s time of 2:11.07 made her the fastest 800-meter runner in Cincinnati history. Pfeifer, who ran indoor track during the offseason, recorded a 2:08.84 in the 800, giving her the fastest indoor time in state history. She ranks third in the nation in the 800. “I believe she is the best track athlete in Cincinnati going into this season and the most dominant middledistance athlete in Cincinnati track history,” Russo said. Pfeifer also runs the 1600, the 4x800 relay and the 4x400 relay. “The last athlete I had in track and field (with) Danielle’s range and ability,” Russo said, “was 2001 Cincinnati (Track) Athlete of

McAuley will also

receive key contributions from sophomores Jordyn Thiery (400/800/4x400/ 4x800) and Rebecca Ashton (regional-qualifier in the 100 hurdles) and juniors Sam Rack (pole vault) and Cara Vondenberge (300 hurdles). Top newcomers include freshman Kate Olding and sophomore Olivia Schaefer. Last year, McAuley finished second in the GGCL, won districts and placed seventh at regionals. The Mohawks lack a lights-out sprinter, but Russo said that the middle- and long-distance events will be the strength of the team. “(The team is) young, hard-working and eager to make their mark as one of the top programs in Cincinnati,” Russo said.

McAuley’s Cara Vordenberge placed third in the 300 hurdles with a time of 52.29 in the cool early spring temperatures at the Fairfield Invitational March 31. Vordenberge is a junior for coach Ron Russo’s Mohawks.

Aiken

The Lady Falcons return several talented runners from a team that finished fifth in the Cincinnati Metro Athletic Conference last season. Among the top returners are seniors Reynisha Murdock (200, 800) and Sheyante Robinson (discus, high jump), juniors Eshrya Gooden (400) and Tourea Caldwell (400) and sophomore Shawnelle Phillip (100, 200). “The girls team is returning experience from last year’s regional (meet) and AAU Nationals this past fall,” second-year head coach Torrance Hill said. “So confidence and expectations are high for conference contention and an appearance at state.” Hill, the reigning CMAC Coach of the Year, said that Gooden and Caldwell are Division I college prospects.

Finneytown

The Lady Wildcats, which finished sixth in the Cincinnati Hills League last season, start the season without two key performers – Lela Colvin and Jenny Besserman – who are recovering from offseason surgery. Colvin, a senior sprinter, is a former regional-qualifier in the long jump. Besserman, a junior, is one of Finneytown’s top distance runners. Head coach Charlie Crawley said both could be back by midseason. Maggie Valerio, a four-year varsity soccer player, has joined the team as a senior and will participate in sprints and pole vault.

North College Hill

The Lady Owls enjoyed an impressive 2010 season in which they won the Fort Ancient Valley Conference Scarlet division in runaway fashion.

Also returning are all four legs of the 800-meter relay team, featuring senior Renisha Hill, juniors Aria Strong and Joselyn Fluker and sophomore Khalia Pouncy. Other noteworthy performers include juniors Mahlon Whitehurst, Akeya Armstrong and Hannah Courter, as well as senior Brittany Pritchett and sophomore Michelle Brown.

Last week’s question

What do you think of the way the U.S. has responded to the demonstrations in the Middle East, including Libya and Egypt? What should we have done differently? “We have enough problems right here in the good old U.S.A. we better start taking care of some of them and not worrying about a bunch of other countries just because they have oil under their soil. We have plenty of oil under our soil if the government would quit putting on so many restrictions in the manner we get it.” L.S. “I think being part of the coalition effort is the correct approach. In many ways the situation is so complex that I don’t know enough to comment on what should have been done differently.” B.N. “We have no business meddling in the affairs of these Arab countries – let them take care of their own . We have enough problems in this country to attend to, to worry about them. Let’s create jobs for Americans; lower the unemployment rate; improve housing market; wage a war on crime and poverty; obesity; improve education; continue to give public employees the right to collective bargaining; work on more research to cure cancer and all those diseases that cut our

Libya is no concern of ours – let France and Britain do the meddling for a change.” L.B. “Armchair quarterbacking? Without being privy to all the intel gathered, it is difficult at best, to even try to make a call and sound somewhat intelligent. I can say the one thing I don’t want to happen – arming rebels. Who are these rogues? In time they will use them against us.” C.A.S. “How did we become involved so quickly? Even though Sadam Hussein massacred hundred of thousands if Iraqis, the U.S. government had to vote to take military action. This only happened after many, many attempts to have the UN send forces. So why is this different? Why can the U.S. president say we will participate and we do? We are spending millions of dollars a day on this action and no one voted for it.” N.P.

Deciphering Social Security codes Q) I received a new Medicare card in the mail. My old card had my Social Security number followed by a letter T. The new card has an A. What do the letters after a Social Security or Medicare number mean? A) The Social Security number followed by one of these codes is often referred to as a claim number. We assign these codes once you apply for benefits. These letter codes may appear on correspondence you receive from Social Security and on your Medicare card. They will never appear on a Social Security card. For example, if you are the wage earner applying for benefits and your Social Security number is 123-45-6789, then your claim number is 123-45-6789A.This number will also be used as your Medicare claim number, once you are eligible for Medicare. In your case, you originally filed for Medicare Part A only, perhaps at 65, and delayed taking your retirement benefits until recently. So your original Medicare card showed your Social Security number followed by a T. Below are the most common beneficiary codes. A – Primary claimant (wage earner) B – Aged wife, age 62 or over B1 – Aged husband, age 62 or over B2 – Young wife, with a child in her care B3 – Aged wife, age 62 or over, second claimant B5 – Young wife, with a child in her care, second claimant B6 – Divorced wife, age 62 or over BY – Young husband, with a child in his care C1-C9 – Child (Includes minor, student or disabled child) D – Aged widow, age 60 or over

Book giveaway

A literacy partnership between Winton Woods Elementary School and members of the Greenhills-Forest Park Kiwanis Club put a copy of the book “Stellaluna” into the hands of every third-grader at the school. Kiwanis President Bill Nolan and members Jim Lawler, Ann Akeson and Peggy Doller visited the school to distribute the books and meet the students. The idea for the book giveaway came from Doller, who had read about a dictionary giveaway. “Stellaluna” was recommended by third-grade teachers and school librarian for its lessons on science and getting along. Teachers plan to incorporate classroom activities with the book. Kiwanis member Jim Lawler is pictured handing a copy of the book “Stellaluna” to Kendal Phillips.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Don’t get solution

How can Gov. Kasich and his “friends” say that Senate Bill 5 is all about saving Ohio money and creating jobs. If that is the case, why is he the 14th highest paid Governor in the United States, ($144,269 – the average governor’s salary is $128,735). His cabinet enjoys salaries ranging from $116,000$182,000, while our illustrious representatives to the state house and senate make a minimum of $60,584 and up to $93,000. (Teachers average $52,000.) All of these people also enjoy free dental and vision insurance while only paying and average of $28 a month for health insurance. For their retirement they only pay in 10 percent while the government pays in 14 percent. (Teachers pay

Gitmo’s role should keep it open As I’m writing this, I’m on a military flight on my way back from Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. I’m on a Congressional delegation with Sen. Scott Brown (R – MA), Democratic Rep. Albio (D – NJ), and a few military personnel. This is the third time I’ve been to Gitmo. The first time was in 2002. My second trip was five years later. Here’s what I saw, learned, and think about Gitmo following my latest inspection of the United States’ principal facility for holding anti-American Jihadist terrorists. At its zenith, approximately 800 detainees were held at Guantanamo Bay. We are now down to 172. The others have been transferred back to their own countries. It’s estimated that 25 percent have again taken up arms against the United States and our allies. I find this particularly disturbing. Of the remaining 172 detainees at Guantanamo Bay, most are from Yemen. They range in age from 23 to 63. They are all male, all Muslims, and in most instances very dangerous. Most eat better and get better medical care than at any time in their lives. The very worst are kept in a separate facility. We visited this location, were briefed, and

observed a number of the inmates on closed circuit T.V. This information is classified, but I can say that the most notorious Steve Chabot detainee we observed was Community Khalid Sheikh Press guest Mohammed, the columnist mastermind of 9/11. He was water boarded more than 100 times, and the information acquired averted planned attacks on the United States after 9/11. There have been allegations that the United States routinely tortures or mistreats detainees at Gitmo. As far as I can tell, this is utterly false. Despite being hit with a mixture of urine and fecal matter by inmates, the guards at Gitmo have a reputation for restraint and professionalism, which I saw on all three visits. Our brave troops ought to be praised, honored and appreciated, not denigrated. So why have we only tried four of these terrorists? The problem is that President Obama shut down the military commission process and proposed that we try

the detainees in U.S. civilian courtrooms, specifically in New York City. There was such an outcry that he has finally backed off. But this has significantly delayed the process, and dramatically increased the cost. Considerable time, energy, and expense were wasted because preliminary proceedings were dismissed when the Obama Administration ordered civilian trials. Now the court motions will have to be refiled and re-litigated, costing us once again – what a waste. It’s too bad the administration didn’t listen to the American people the first time. I continue to argue that master propagandists like Khalid Sheikh Mohammed cannot be allowed to use their trials to spread their vehement, antiAmerican message. Further, to allow them to mix with U.S. prison inmates would risk spreading their virulent venom throughout our prisons. In conclusion, Gitmo still serves an important role in the war against Islamic Jihadist terrorists, and in my opinion should remain open into the foreseeable future. Rep. Steve Chabot (R – 1st District) is the chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on the Middle East and South Asia.

How true is the experience of love at first sight? observes, interprets and tries to d e t e r m i n e whether the arrival of the new thing will be good or bad for us. So, if the Father Lou intellect judges Guntzelman the new object Perspectives will be bad for us in some way, then our will does not choose it. It rejects it instead. If, on the other hand, our intellect judges the new object as good for us, then our will chooses it, likes it, wants it. In reality, however, only time will tell, not just a glance. And if it’s a new person, love is proven only with time and much interpersonal work. We can’t confuse alluring with enduring.

Prevent falls to live injury-free Many Ohioans believe that accidents just happen, but won’t happen to them. However, most injuries aren’t accidents – they are preventable. The threat of injury lasts throughout your lifetime. Beyond cuts and bruises, injuries such as falls can have devastating effects including broken bones, head injuries, disabilities and can reduce independence and quality of life. Knowing the risks and taking steps to avoid injuries can help keep you and your loved ones injury-free. Making life at home safer can be a great investment in your future. • Increase lighting by adding lamps or wattage to existing lights. • Remove loose rugs and repair damaged flooring. • Place electrical cords against the wall or baseboard. • Replace door knobs with lever handles for easier access. • Install grab bars in tub/shower areas. • Place non-slip mats or strips on the tub/shower floor. Reduce risk of falls in the workplace to prevent expensive workers’ compensation and medical costs. • Take your time and pay attention to where you are going. • Adjust your stride to a pace that is suitable for the walking surface and the tasks you are completing.

• Walk with feet pointed slightly outward. • Make wide turns at corners. • Always use installed light sources that provide sufficient light. • a flashlight if you enter a dark room where there is no light • Ensure things you are carrying or pushing do not prevent you from seeing any obstructions. Participating in regular physical activity helps improve balance and reduce the risk of falling. Regular physical activity helps improve and prevent the decline of muscle strength, balance and endurance – all risk factors for falling. Simply 30 minutes a day of moderate physical activity on five or more days of the week will make a difference. Walking is an easy and inexpensive way to improve balance, ankle strength and endurance. Talk to your doctor if you are a new exerciser – your doctor will make ensure you exercise safely. For more information on preventing falls including how to make your home safer, physical activity opportunities near you and exercise safety tips, visit the Hamilton County Fall Prevention Task Force at www.fallpreventiontaskforce.org.

work we must do on the relationship but also the work we must do on ourselves. Rather than a “first sight” of an exquisitely attractive human, we must learn much more about the person which is not visible to sight, and often kept hidden. Really revealing ourselves to another entails great risk. We know it may lead not only to our acceptance, but also rejection. Potential lovers and spouses must trade in an illusion for a reality. Illusion says real love is so easy that it can be determined at first sight. Reality says, “Unless we are fully known, we cannot be fully loved.” Father Lou Guntzelman is a Catholic priest of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati. Contact him at columns@community press.com or P.O.

for Women

Developing crucial aspects of personality can only be learned over time, not as first sight. We marry more than a first impression: Our intellects need time to know and judge. Then our wills can make that deep choice of personal love – which is not based only on feelings but what we know that person to be. Such a love can grow stronger as we come to know more of the person. Only the long-married know the truth path of love and how tenuous it is to count on love at first sight. “There is scarcely anything more difficult than to love one another,” writes the poet Rainer Maria Rilke. “That it is work, day labor, God knows there is no other word for it.” The work includes not only the

It’s possible to meet a new person and immediately judge them as looking beautiful, handsome, brilliant or sexy at first sight. But our intellect must get to know much more of that person before our will can make that deep committed choice called love. That’s the reason why dating and communicating are so crucial. “Love at first sight” leaves too many unanswered questions. What if the person who, at first sight, seems so intelligent is unable to communicate honestly? What if the person who is so beautiful rich, and good in bed is also very selfish and conceited? Author Frederick Buechner wrote of a young woman who’s extremely beautiful, but “is in a way crippled by her own beauty because it has meant that she has never had to be loving or human to be loved, but only beautiful.”

Though the saying has been bantered for generations, we still can ask, “Is there any truth to love at first sight?” Highly unlikely. Attraction at first sight? Yes. Infatuation at first sight? Yes. Positive sexual chemistry at first sight? Yes. But love at first sight? No, not if we take love in its truest sense. Studies say that men more than women think they have experienced love at first sight. In more extended studies, however, this claim becomes questionable. Why not love at first sight? We must keep in mind how we tick. The human mind is divided into intellect and will. The intellect knows and judges. The will chooses and seeks. Love is an act of the will. For example, when we experience something new, the intellect acts first. It gathers information,

Recipes that are just waiting for spring to arrive I love to see the field next to ours plowed and ready for planting. There’s something about the rich, dark e a r t h b e i n g disked up so deeply Rita that conHeikenfeld nects me Rita’s kitchen to Mother Nature. We’ve just about finished planting the spring greens and veggies in our garden. I planted a nice long row of spinach, salad greens and chard. Next to that are carrots, peas and white onions. (I jumped the gun a few weeks ago and planted a small amount of radishes, beets, more salad greens and peas in the cold frame. They’re up but have a way to go before we can harvest any). We planted

Yukon gold, red and baking potatoes last week. Now all we have to do is wait for the weather to warm up (again) to coax them out of the ground, as well. I am going to make Mimi Sinclair’s ziti with the first batch of spinach that comes up.

1 cup fresh spinach Cook pasta according to package directions, omitting salt. Drain. Heat oil in large non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add cherry tomatoes, salt, crushed red pepper, and minced garlic to pan; cook one minute, stirring occasionally. Stir in half-and-half and Gorgonzola cheese; cook two minutes or until slightly thick, stirring constantly. Stir in spinach and pasta; cook one minute or until spinach wilts, tossing occasionally. Yields 2 servings; 335 calories per serving.

Mimi Sinclair’s ziti

Mimi sent this in after I requested recipes for two. It looks so good. Adapted from “Cooking Light.” 4 oz. ziti or other short noodles 1 ⁄2 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved 1 ⁄4 teaspoon No-Salt 1 ⁄8 teaspoon crushed red pepper 1 garlic clove, minced 6 tablespoons fat free half-and-half 3 tablespoons Gorgonzola cheese, crumbled

Nana’s creamed peas & nuggets

A “faithful reader” sent this in for moms who are trying to make healthy meals for the little ones. This reminds me of the tuna and peas I used to fix for my kids when they were starting on solid foods.

It became a favorite the whole time they were growing up. A good choice since peas provide calcium, vitamin A and C, plus a good boost of iron. 3-4 cups peas, fresh or frozen 1 cup milk 2 tablespoons flour 2 tablespoons butter Salt and pepper and garlic powder to taste (opt.) Pieces of chicken, tuna, etc. Melt butter in a large sauce pan. Whisk in flour and allow to cook for one minute. Slowly add milk, whisking the whole time to prevent lumps. Add salt and pepper. Cook until sauce begins to thicken. Add peas, stir and cook until peas are heated through. Add meat. Serve warm alone or over multigrain toast or rice.

Bok choy with chile and garlic

Can you help?

I can’t remember the name of the fellow who stopped me in the store, asking for a recipe for bok choy. In fact, it was quite a while ago. This is a delish side dish with or without the red pepper flakes. 1 tablespoon minced garlic or more to taste 11⁄2 pounds or so baby bok choy or regular bok choy Red pepper flakes, soy sauce and sesame oil to taste Film a skillet with Canola oil over medium heat. Add garlic and stir until fragrant. Don’t let burn. Add bok choy, chopped if necessary, and cook until leaves are wilted, about five minutes. Stir in pepper flakes, soy and sesame oil. Toss to combine.

• Western & Southern’s cafeteria stuffed bell peppers. For Mary Ann, a Delhi reader. “Don’t know if the meat was sausage or beef, but it was ground with a rice mixture in a tomato sauce. A kick to it, maybe like Spanish rice,” she said. Ann remembers them in a steam table pan, lined up with extra tomato sauce. If you have a similar or the original recipe, please share. • Southwestern style meatloaf cooked in oven or crockpot. For Dan, a Northern Kentucky reader. “I would prefer a crockpot recipe but won’t turn down a good meatloaf baked in the oven,” he told me. Rita Nader Heikenfeld is an herbalist, educator and author.

Mercy donates to help Cancer Society Mercy Health Partners is donating $8,000 raised from a recent awareness campaign to the local chapter of the American Cancer Society. Mercy initiated a campaign to increase awareness of breast cancer and the importance of an annual mammogram for women ages 40 and older or who have a family history of breast cancer. Annual mammograms save lives through early detection, which Mercy provides via digital mammography across the Greater Cincinnati area. The campaign included a pledge of $1 to

the American Cancer Society for every mammogram that was scheduled at a Mercy facility during the month of October. “We know that early disease detection saves lives, so Mercy wants to continue to heighten awareness about the importance of having an annual mammogram,” said Kristen Wevers, vice president of Marketing and Communications for Mercy Health Partners. “Mercy is delighted to partner with the American Cancer Society, raising money to support breast health awareness and ensure mammograms are made

available to more individuals every day through our facilities and mobile mammography vans which travel throughout the entire Greater Cincinnati area.” The money will go toward the American Cancer Society program that helps provide mammograms to low-income women who cannot afford them. “We are grateful to Mercy Health Partners for providing this donation to such an important program,” said Meredith Niemeyer, regional vicepresident of the American Cancer Society – Southwest Ohio region. “We are proud

might not be able to get an annual mammogram.” Along with the $1 pledge, the campaign also included the distribution of

pink carnations and mammogram appointment cards to visitors of Mercy hospitals and The Jewish Hospital once a week during October.

“Hey, whatcha’ doin’ in there?” Nosey asked, scratching on the closed bathroom door. “Cleaning,” I replied. “Can I come in?” she asked, scratching harder and whining. “It is ‘may I come in,’ and no, you can’t.” “Why?” she howled. “Because I’m using harsh chemicals and you’re not allowed to be around them.” “Why?” she whimpered. “Because you are a puppy and you get into everything and I’m keeping you safe.” Spring is here and it is time for cleaning the house, getting the garden planted and celebrating Easter and Passover. So, I’d like to take this opportunity to remind pet owners to be mindful of their animal companion’s safety this season. While you are spring cleaning keep cleaning supplies out of the reach of your pets. Store them in secure cabinets, far away from your pets food and treats. While you are cleaning, put your pets in a separate room so that they can’t inadvertently drink out of a

This goes for dogs and cats as well Marsie Hall as caged Newbold birds and pocket pets Marsie’s such as Menagerie h a m s t e r s and gerbils. Caustic fumes can cause these tiny creatures harm. When you are getting ready to clean, take up your pet’s food and water bowls. If you can’t move fish tanks, take special precautions not to use aerosols in the same room. A great trick is to put plastic wrap over top of the aquarium for the short time it takes for you to clean in that room. Don’t leave it there for long, but it will keep the water from becoming contaminated. When you are washing windows or installing screens for the season, be especially careful to contain your pets. Dogs, cats and ferrets are curious and can escape in the few moments that a window is open and your

back is turned. A fall can cause serious injury. If you have birds, make sure that they are securely in their cages. I can’t tell you how many times I have heard of pet birds taking the opportunity to fly out the window never to be seen again. Pet birds are very vulnerable outdoors to predators. They also don’t have the skills to fend for themselves and many who are lost starve or die of thirst. This is the time of year when pets like to be outdoors, so make certain that dogs and cats have good fitting collars with your up-todate contact information on the tags. You might also invest in getting them micro-chipped. It is the start of flea, tick and mosquito season, so check with your veterinarian to start up a preventative regimens. Gardening is fraught with hazards for pets. Try to be as organic in your gardening activities as possible, avoiding the use of pesticides and herbicides. There are many alternatives to harsh poisons, so check with your lawn and garden center for pet-friendly products.

Many bulbs are poisonous, so keep them out of paw’s reach or avoid them altogether when planning your garden. Some examples of toxic bulbs are daffodils, Easter lilies, morning glories and rhododendrons. Eye injuries can be caused by thorny plants such as roses. The popular cocoa mulch should be avoided as it can be ingested and is harmful to pets. You’ll also want to be careful when planting spinach, rhubarb, onions and garlic. These can cause severe gastrointestinal problems and even death if eaten by pets. During Easter and Passover celebrations, keep pets away from chocolate and especially the artificial grass used in Easter baskets. Spring is a wonderful time of year. Make it safe for your whole family by doing just a little planning ahead. For more pet care tips, visit www.marsiesmenagerie.com.

$1,100 gift replaces stolen funds When he heard that PregnancyCare of Cincinnati lost about $1,100 in cash donations during a robbery at Grace Bible Presbyterian Church, Dr. Richard Fink of Seven Hills Women’s Health Center in West Chester knew he had to do something. So on March 3, he delivered a check for $1,100 to Terri Konermann, the center director at PregnancyCare’s Forest Park office. “I saw the piece on the news,” Fink said. “I see the financial strain all the time … women who don’t come for medical care because, despite insurance, it still might mean the kids only eat once per day instead of twice because of trying to pay the bills. And this money that was stolen didn’t come from a rich philanthropist. It came from ordinary people who made sacrifices to help others.” Konermann couldn’t have been more thankful. “We can get car seats in bulk for about $55 each. We have to purchase pregnancy tests, stock new baby items for graduates of our parenting classes, and just keep the lights on in our centers.

Dr. Richard Fink of Seven Hills Women’s Health Center in West Chester delivers a check for $1,100 to Terri Konermann, the Center Director at PregnancyCare’s Forest Park office. Eleven hundred dollars is a big deal to us,” she said. PregnancyCare helped about 3,000 families in 2010. Clients who come to PregnancyCare do not pay for any of the services the centers provide. Pregnancy tests, material assistance, one-on-one education programs and parenting classes are free to clients who need them because of the support of donors like Seven Hills Women’s Health Center and Grace Bible Presbyterian Church. PregnancyCare can also provide referrals to other area services and for medical care. PregnancyCare will con-

tinue its efforts to raise funds to provide support for area families at its Winning for Life partnership banquet at 6 p.m. March 31 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, 11320 Chester Road, Sharonville. Anthony Munoz, the Bengals lineman who went to the Pro Bowl 11 years in a row before being inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1998, is the keynote speaker.
