75¢ BECAUSE COMMUNITY MATTERS

Mt. Healthy council wants community input on police levy By Jennie Key jkey@communitypress.com

Mount Healthy City Council is planning to set up a focus group to talk about passing a tax increase for its police department in November. An ad hoc council committee met April 7 to talk about the city’s financial situation. City manager Bill Kocher said the city needs to generate an additional $450,000 annually to stabilize the police department and free up money in the general fund for other expenses. Mount Healthy has an Kocher annual budget of about $4 million. Kocher said as local government funds and the estate tax were eliminated, the city lost revenue. Since 2011, he said the city lost about $350,000 or about 8 percent of the revenue that supported its general fund, street department and fire department. Some of the city’s efforts to offset lost income have included outsourcing the collection of income tax to the Regional Income Tax Agency, freezing new hires except for the school resource officer replacement, reducing the number of full-time

employees by five, and cutting the firefighting staff on the 4 a.m. to 8 a.m. shift to a minimum coverage level of two people every day. “After months of work sessions and review of alternatives, we need about $450,000 to stabilize the city’s budget,” Kocher said. “We haven’t had new income in the city since 2008 and we have managed with spending cuts. We are now at a place where we can’t do that anymore.” That $450,000 would allow the city to shift some of the cost of the police department’s operations from the general fund to the new income. The general fund money freed up would be used to add fire staff to the 4 a.m. to 8 a.m. shift. The city has postponed capital purchases for the police and fire department such as vehicles and equipment, and the additional funds would allow the city to begin making some of those purchases. The city would also begin to make additional street improvements with the additional funds, as well. “That’s why we need that additional $100,000,” he said. “We have to begin addressing the condition of our streets.” Kocher estimated that the See POLICE, Page A2

Way of Cross has become a way of life By Jennie Key jkey@communitypress.com

For13 years, the churches of Mount Airy have been celebrating Good Friday together. Their Mount Airy Way of the Cross on Good Friday is becoming a tradition for others, now attracting people from across the area. From its beginning 13 years ago, the commemoration of the Lord’s passion and death was a Mount Airy event and members of Mount Airy Churches were the only participants. Jerome Gabis, a member of Mount Airy’s St. Therese Little Flower Church, says over the years, more and more people have heard about it and joined in this outdoor Way of the Cross that winds its way along Colerain Avenue, Mount Airy’s chief thoroughfare. According to the event planners, people from Northern Kentucky, Southeastern Indiana, downtown, and Western Hills, and Colerain and Green townships have come to pray from year to year. “It’s not as old a tradition as praying the steps up to Mount Adams’ Immaculata Church, but it is as prayerful

and stirring to those who walk the half-mile trek in the footsteps of Jesus,” Gabis said. Participants have said having different generations and church members carry the heavy cross together is a moving experience and the idea that the cross is signed by partici-

pants every year is a sign of the continuity of the faith. This year’s event will begin at 3 p.m. Good Friday, April 18, at the Truth and Destiny Church (formerly the Mount Airy United Methodist Church) at 2645 W. North Bend Road, near the See CROSS, Page A2

Road near Falcon Lane when he was attacked by the 16-year-old, 6-foot, 190pound assailant. Caster told police the teen punched him in the left side of his face and knocked him to the ground. The suspect allegedly continued to punch the victim and kicked him repeatedly in the back. During the assault, the victim asked the suspect to stop beating him due to a recent medical condition.

The teen continued to punch him, however, and went through the victim’s pockets, Ferdelman saying “give me everything in your pockets,” and then fled from the scene on foot. Greenhills Police Chief Neil R. Ferdelman credited the work of Greenhills

Police Officer Eric Tricase, who was assisted by officers Eric Wetterich, Robert White and Ray Tensing, under the supervision of Sgt. Tim Lukes for a thorough investigation and quick arrest. Greenhills police have charged a 16-year-old Cincinnati resident with aggravated robbery. He was taken to the Hamilton County Juvenile Detention Facility in Cincinnati where he will be until his court appearance.

would raise. Kocher said he would work on it, but cautioned that hard data may hard to generate, because of variables and because RITA is in its first season collecting for the city and the collections may not be complete before the focus group meeting. The committee also considered whether a combination of income tax and property taxes might be a fair compromise. Council members James Wolf and Jenny Moody said they were concerned that if there were two issues on the ballot, it would be a problem if only one passed. “People tend to compromise,” Wolf said. The focus group would convene in May. The council committee is looking for a group that repre-

sents a number of stakeholders as it moves toward making a November levy request. Council members said they want to hear from retirees, people who live in Mount Healthy and work elsewhere, people who live and work in Mount Healthy, members of the historical society and block watches; Mayor Joseph Roetting said the goal is a real mix. There are a limited number of spaces available in the focus group; the city may not be able to include all those who are interested. The only requirement to participate in the focus group is to be a registered voter who lives in Mount Healthy. If interested, call 931-8840 or email city manager Bill Kocher at bkocher@mthealthy.org.

As you walk it, it’s very prayerful.” “We are inviting people from across the area to make a Good Friday pilgrimage to Mount Airy to pray this Way of the Cross,” said Pastor John Douglas, pastor of Praise Chapel Church of God. Other sponsoring churches include Light of the World Ministries led by Elder Rodney Posey and Impact Worship Center under Pastor Mike Scruggs. The churches are all part of the Mount Airy Churches United. The group sponsors a community Thanksgiving service and a number of community service projects throughout the year.

city would need a .50 percent increase in the income tax or a 5.74-mill property tax levy to raise the money the city needs. The city manager says the plan works assuming a fire levy renewal passes on the Aug. 5 special election ballot. Mt. Healthy is asking its residents to renew the current fire levy, a renewal which will not raise taxes but will continue services at their current level. “If that fails, we are back to square one,” Kocher said. Councilman Robert Parsons said he would like Kocher to get better estimates as to what an increase in the income tax

Forest Park energy program pays off for residents By Jennie Key jkey@communitypress.com

Forest Park has an environmental program that helps residents with more than advice. The program puts money in their pockets as well. “We have programs that provide financial assistance in the form of subsidies to residents and businesses,” said Wright Gwynn, program manager for the Forest Park Environmental Awareness Program. “These subsidies are limited, so it’s first come, first served.” One such subsidy program is Forest Park’s Residential Energy Efficiency Program. This offers residents a subsidy of up to $750 to improve their homes’ energy efficiency by improving the air seal-

ing and insulation or installing new, more energy-efficient windows, doors or heating and air conditioning systems. There is a $1,500 minimum project size in order to qualify for Forest Park incentives. To qualify, residents must own and live in the house that is under consideration for energy efficiency improvements and sign up with the Greater Cincinnati Energy Alliance. A pre-energy assessment is required by the Greater Cincinnati Energy Alliance or by a selected contractor. Another energy assessment will be conducted to ensure that the improvements were successful once work is completed. Last year, the Energy

Installing insulation in attics is one of a number of energy efficiences that can qualify for Forest Park’s Residential Energy Efficiency Program, which provides incentives to homeowners who participate. THANKS TO WRIGHT GWYNN

Efficiency Program exceeded the city’s goal of 150 home improvements with 156 homes receiving energy efficiency improvements since the program’s implementation. During the past two years, the program spent more than $180,000 in incentive

funding. An additional $10,000 has been budgeted for incentives in 2014 and the goal for the year is to provide subsidies to improve an additional 15 homes. The energy efficiency improvement projects were varied, and some

Four people charged in Craiglist robberies By Jennie Key jkey@communitypress.com

Colerain Township Police Chief Mark Denney says four people have been charged in connection with several aggravated armed robbers involving items posted on Craigslist. On March 25 and March 26, police say the suspects took cash from victims after posting bogus ads on Craigslist offering items for sale. The victims arranged to purchase a cell phone and a laptop and when the buyers arrived at an agreedupon location, the sus-

pects robbed the victims at gunpoint. On March 28, detectives from the Colerain Denny Police Department Criminal Investigative Unit arranged to meet the suspects in an attempt to arrest them for the previous robberies. When the undercover detective arrived, two of the suspects entered his vehicle. One of the suspects pointed a loaded .45 at the detectives head. The detective bailed out

of the car and the armed suspect fled. As he fled, the suspect encountered another Colerain detective. The suspect began to point the weapon at that detective, forcing the officer to fire his service weapon at the suspect, striking him in the hand. After further investigation, four suspects were located and arrested. They are: » Edna Liban, 20, of the 2300 block of West Galbraith Road, facing three counts of aggravated robbery and three counts of robbery. » Justice Grant, 19, of 1300 block of North Bend

Road in College Hill, facing three counts three counts of aggravated robbery and three counts of robbery with three gun specifications. » Two juveniles, one a 15-year-old male from Forest Park, the other a 16-year old male from College Hill, also each face three counts of aggravated robbery and three counts of robbery with three gun specifications. Denney said the juveniles have been referred for bind-over hearings in Hamilton County Juvenile Court to be tried as adults.

homeowners did more than one project on their home. The projects included 134 air-sealing projects, 126 increased insulation projects, 60 homes that got new water heaters, furnaces, heat pumps or air conditioning systems and 26 homeowners installed energy efficient windows or doors. Gwynn said he’s pleased with the response to the program, and the goal now is to sustain a level of about $10,000 in subsidies annually. Mayor Chuck Johnson said in October that the city is happy to partner with the Greater Cincinnati Energy Alliance, and he is in fa-

vor of seeing the partnership continue and grow. “We get a lot of positive feedback about the program,” he said. “People tells us that not only are they saving money, but they feel their home is more comfortable. Some people even said their house was quieter after the improvements.” Only residents using a GC-HELP Whole Home Loan qualify for an incentive.

This configuration was arrived at after community engagement, surveys and focus groups during the 2012-2013 school year.

Groups consolidate services for visually impaired

Cincinnati Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired and Clovernook Center for the Blind and Visually Impaired have

agreed to consolidate four services that the organizations both separately provide to the Greater Cincinnati community. The four services that are being consolidated include: » access technology training/computer and other device; » orientation and mobility instruction; » social services, and » vision rehabilitation therapy. Clients using these four services through Clovernook Center will now be provided services by CABVI, where the services will continue to be offered going forward. This realignment between the organizations’ services is an outcome of a strategic partnership agreement that CABVI and Clovernook Center entered into in February 2012. This agreement was designed to align, improve, and strengthen the services that the organizations collectively provide to the community, best meet the needs of the blind and visually impaired community, eliminate redundancy in services between the organizations, and make best use of resources and funding.

Winton Woods humanities students present at OSBA For the second year in a row the humanities class at Winton Woods Middle School was one of innovative programs showcased at the 15th annual Student Achievement Fair at the 2013 Ohio School Boards Association Capital Conference and Trade Show. Winton Woods Middle School was selected to participate based upon the humanities program’s creativity and positive impact on student achievement. Jack Schramm, Andie Lariccia and Karen Sanchez, all freshmen in the Academy of Global Studies @ Winton Woods High School, spoke to convention participants about the project-based, mul-

ti-disciplinary humanities class they took as eighthgraders at Winton Woods Middle School. They said the class taught them improved communication, cooperation, and collaborative skills and described some of the projects they participated in. The OSBA event offered an opportunity to observe and learn what public school districts in Ohio are doing to enhance learning and achievement in their schools. The Student Achievement Fair is sponsored by the OSBA Student Leadership Team, which is an integral part of OSBA’s focus on improving public education.

» All students taking French, Latin or Spanish as an elective were afforded the opportunity to learn more about the practical side of learning, becoming fluent in a second language and becoming global citizens. Erika Senk of Ohio State University, spoke to the students about careers that have some sort of language requirement. Senk represented OSU’s CAAP program, which stands for Collaborative Articulation and Assessment Project. In her interactive presentation, Senk gave examples of reallife job descriptions that required a second language, such as a bilingual family therapist. McAuley offers four years of French, Latin, and Spanish to students, from beginner’s level to Advanced Placement. » Sister Mary Michaeleen Keane Library continues its 21st century evolution with the creation of a “makerspace.” Makerspaces, informal workshops for tinkering and creating, are beginning to pop up in libraries across the country. “The mission of a modern library is to promote learning in a variety of ways,” said librarian Becky Reilly, “and establishing a makerspace in our library further develops a culture of creativity, collaboration, community and critical thinking.” Currently, McAuley’s makerspace focuses on the creation of greeting cards and will promote participatory learning and community by providing opportunities for students, teachers, and staff to tinker, design, write, and connect. Eventually, a McAuleyspecific curation site like Etsy or Pinterest will be created to post and share designs and add an additional digital layer to the project. Those who utilize the space in the library have access to a multitude of crafting materials and resources like scanners, printers, rhyming and foreign language dictionaries, books of quotations, models of proper letterwriting etiquette and samples of student- and teacher-made cards. The station is available for use during regular library hours, 7:35 a.m. to 3:45 p.m. daily. » McAuley’s spring musical production this year is Rodgers & Hammerstein’s “Cinderella.” Performances are 7:30 p.m. Friday, April 11, and Saturday, April 12, and 2 p.m. Sunday, April 13, in the Performing Arts Center at the school, 6000 Oakwood Ave. Get reserved seats up until the day before the show online at showtix4u.com or purchase them at the door. Ticket prices are $10 for adults and $8 for students/seniors. There will be a children’s and adult basket raffled the weekend of the show. A special Grade School Night will be held on opening night, April 11. Girls in sixth-, seventhand eighth -grades are invited to come to the show dressed in their grade school spirit wear, which will earn them a halfprice ticket. They will have to purchase their $4 tickets at the door to receive this discount. After the curtain call, the young girls are invited to stay for a backstage tour of McAuley’s Performing Arts Center. A Cinderella Tea Party will be held from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Saturday, April 12, in McAuley’s cafeteria. Admission price is $10 for mother and daughter, and $5 for additional child, and the little girls will get to learn a dance from the show.

Winton Woods City Schools

Work to rebuild the grandstand on the visitors’ side of Charlie Fredrick Stadium, located behind Winton Woods High School, will begin in March, according to Steve Denny, executive director of accountability and business affairs for Winton Woods City Schools. Winton Woods Treasurer Randy Seymour said the district had already budgeted the $205,000 needed for the project. The new grandstand will seat 1,132, which is less than the current seating of 1,800. Denny said the new capacity will cover 95 percent to 99 percent of the events run at the stadium. The rebuilding cost is also over $90,000 less than the cost of renovating the current grandstand. “I wish we didn’t have to do this,” Board Member John Pennycuff said. “It’s $200,000 I’d prefer to put in computers or teacher salaries or things that are more directly connected to education. However this is a safety issue that we cannot ignore.” “Our stadium is a state-of-the art facility that people want to rent for AAU track meets and collegiate level soccer games,” Denny said. “This is the final piece to completing the stadium construction that began in 2006.” Denny said the work should be completed by the end of May. » The Summer Cost Savings Program implemented by Winton Woods City Schools four years ago has meant “a total of over $49,000 in cumulative savings has been realized since the summer of 2010,” said Steve Denny, executive director of accountability and business affairs for the district. “This number can be thought of as the amount of money the cost savings days program will have realized if there were no changes made in our summer operations or our practices as compared to the base amount spent on electricity in the summer of 2010.” For six weeks during the summer, the district implements Summer Cost Savings Days, and employees work four 10-hour days each week instead of five eight-hour days. All district employees and associates are asked not to use any district facilities or utilities, especially and specifically electric power, every Friday, Saturday and Sunday each week during the cost savings period. Any access to district facilities on a Friday, Saturday or Sunday during the cost savings period must be approved in advance through the district’s business office.

Maintaining a 3.3 grade-point average and being involved in

extracurricular activities has not been easy for Maame Afrakoma, a senior at Winton Woods High School. “When Maame emigrated from Ghana she was faced with many challenges, and she overcame them all,” said Byron Trapp, her counselor at the high school. “Maame is a wonderful young woman who is driven to succeed in school and life.” Trapp said it was Afrakoma’s Afrakoma “get-things-done attitude and genuine respect for the students and the high school itself” that earned her a position as one of the high school’s Student Ambassadors. “Maame has been a joy to work with. She is smart and confident, yet humble and has wisdom beyond her years. I have gotten to know how hard she works in school and the expectations she has placed on herself. Maame is a one of a kind student who cannot be replaced.”

Winton Woods Intermediate School

Fifth-grader Amaya Fox was honored with the Kiwanis Character is Key Award for trustworthiness at the Feb. 24 board of education meeting. Her language arts and reading teacher Adrienne Scott described Fox as “the complete package.” Fox In her letter to the board, Scott praised Fox for being a hard worker. “She takes meticulous notes and is very organized,” Scott said. “Each day Amaya makes an effort to learn something new, and she always appreciates a challenge. She is kind to all of her peers and is always conscientious of other feelings. Amaya is trustworthy and respectful to all teachers and staff at the intermediate school. She is a total joy to have in class. Amaya’s amazing work ethic and wonderful personality are examples of a true Warrior.”

Winton Woods Middle School

Eighth-grader Samuel Dean was at a school basketball game during the January board of education meeting, so his parents showed up to accept his award as the Kiwanis Character is Key award recipient for fairness. Teachers Will Bowman and Jana Wylds describe Samuel as “an extremely hard worker both in the classroom and on the court. Dean Sam thrives on building positive relationships and is willing to help others. He is the first to raise his hand to offer insight during discussions and sticks with every task through completion. He’s a good role model for other students, showing respect, fairness, determination, and kindness every day.” In physical education class, Bowman said Dean is fair in all sports and came out of a dodgeball game on his own “even though the teacher did not see him get hit. In the weight room, he is a hard worker who consistently pushes himself to set personal records. He will also positively coach his partner on the correct techniques. He is a joy to have in class and is an excellent example of a student who is fair.”

Cancer free, St. Xavier’s catcher returns to field McDonough loves returning to game

By Tom Skeen tskeen@communitypress.com

SPRINGFIELD TWP. — The word “cancer” strikes fear into the hearts of everybody, especially those who directly or indirectly know somebody affected by the disease. The St. Xavier High School family was hit hard in February 2013 when then-junior baseball player Jordan McDonough was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma - a cancer of the lymphatic system that is part of the immune system, according to mayoclinic.org. After finding a lump on his neck while sitting in biology class on a Friday, McDonough went to the doctor’s office after school and was moments away from being sent home without a diagnosis before doctors requested an X-ray. That’s when the McDonough family received the bad news. “We waited a few minutes and they came in with a piece of paper face down and said ‘we have some bad news,’” McDonough said. “They found a softball size mass in my chest. I didn’t really think it was real at first. I thought it was a dream, a terrible nightmare at first.” With four 21-day chemotherapy cycles in front of him, McDonough knew his junior season of Bomber baseball wouldn’t happen and worried how it would affect his scholarship to The Ohio State University. While life comes first, not being able to take the field with his best friends or play the game he loves was a harsh reality while he dealt with the treatment. “That was really hard, especially being my junior year and

being my last year with some of the guys I grew up with,” the catcher said. “It was tough.” The Buckeyes communicated with him about his scholar-

ship early on. “They actually came down and told me when I was in my first cycle (of chemo) that I didn’t have anything to worry

about,” McDonough said. “No matter if I can play baseball again, they’ll keep my scholarship just so I can go to school.” The Buckeyes kept their word as McDonough signed his National Letter of Intent earlier this year. Despite some serious hiccups along the way, McDonough was declared 100 percent cancer free in August. While 13 sessions of radiation remained in front of him, he and his family continued a tradition and celebrated what became a memorable day for both the McDonough and St. Xavier family. “It was a good day, that’s for sure,” he said. “I will definitely remember that day for sure. The routine we had was on the seventh day when I went back for chemo, I had a craving for Hooters wings, so I think we went there that day.” Those wings helped him fly back to the baseball field he loves. At present, the senior is hitting .167 through his first 18 atbats after not playing in a high school baseball game since May 17, 2012. “It’s just getting my timing back,” the senior said. “I’ve hit some balls hard - just right at people - and I’ve run into some bad luck, but I’m definitely staying positive.” Staying positive is nothing new for McDonough; it’s what he did for nearly a year and a half battling one of the scariest diseases known to man. “When you’re in the hospital and you see the other kids, plus one of my friends’ dad had leukemia and he ended up dying the same week I was diagnosed,” he said, “... all that stuff helped me get through it, just knowing people out there have worse things going on more than I do.”

Finneytown’s coach Leigh watches son Austin mature in new role By Tom Skeen

tskeen@communitypress.com

FINNEYTOWN — For the past three years Finneytown High School senior Austin Leigh has just been “one of the guys.” While hitting over .300 as both a junior and sophomore under the direction of his father and coach John Leigh, his presence was felt on the field, but not so much in the clubhouse. That’s not the case in 2014. As one of just two seniors on a roster that features five freshmen and sophomores, John asked his son to step out of his comfort zone and into a leadership role for the Wildcats. “He’s doing a lot better than I expected, actually,” the elder Leigh said, who has his Finneytown team off to a 1-3 start. “He’s kind of reserved and laid back and doesn’t really talk a whole lot, but we tell him every day you have to come out here and lead by example.” The change has trickled down to Austin.

“Yeah, I definitely see a change in myself,” the senior said. “Before, I hardly talked

at all and now it’s just more of a team thing.” His role at the plate has

changed as well. In years past, it was his job to just get on base or move a runner along. Now the second baseman/pitcher is asked to do more. “As a leader, in my opinion, you do whatever you got to do for the team,” John said. “At the end of the day when your team is struggling and you’re going to go through some growing pains, you need people like that to help you out; whether it be your son or any of the other players.” You can see how much John has enjoyed the past four years coaching his son and watching him mature into a man by asking him how much he will miss not having his son around next season. “This is every day and it’s been a great experience,” he said, smiling. “I miss out a little bit with my daughter but the good thing is she plays volleyball a lot. She plays softball too, but I get to see the volleyball on Sundays and I love that, but seeing my son every day and being a part of this and See BASEBALL, Page A7

Things are quite different this season for La Salle High School senior Nick Boardman. As a junior he was part of a senior-laden team, hitting in the middle of the order and playing his first season of varsity baseball. Now he sits atop the lineup trying to set the tone for a Lancer team that features just three returning players from 2013, when they finished second in the Greater Catholic League behind Moeller. “This year it’s become more about getting on base because we have a lot of good hitters who can get me in,” Boardman said. “It’s about getting on base, getting in, stealing a couple bags and letting them hit me in.” The senior outfielder isn’t hitting at the top of the lineup by choice, but by necessity, according to coach Joe Voegele. “Basically he was the only guy we had to fit that role,” the coach said. “There was no preparation; it was his job. I’d rather have him hit third if we had someone to fill that spot at the top of the lineup.” Things are working out through the first four games from the leadoff spot, as he’s hitting .333 with two RBI, three stolen bases and five runs scored as of April 9. “(The other team is)

trying to get you out and get ahead of you so you get a lot more fastballs, but you’re still going up there trying to find your pitch and hitting it back up the box,” the senior said. “That’s what you have to do.” Not only has his spot in the lineup changed, but his role on the team has as well. After learning from the likes of former Lancers Tyler Haubner and Brad Burkhart, it’s now Boardman’s time to lead and Voegele likes what he’s seen thus far. “He’s one of the leaders. He played with some seniors last year that were leaders and he saw how they reacted and how they treated other people, so he tries to do the same thing,” Voegele said, who has 356 career wins. “That’s what happens;

you hope your seniors set that tone and pass it on (to) the younger guys and they pick up the torch eventually.” Verbally committed to the College of Mount St. Joseph, Boardman showed just how mentally strong he was out of the gate last season. He began his first season of varsity baseball 0-for-15 at the plate and still managed to join the .400 club at La Salle, just one of 41 players to ever do so at La Salle. “He works harder at hitting than 99 percent of other guys,” Voegele said. “That’s his strength. You watch him and he’ll do other things guys don’t do. He’ll try to read pitches and watch other hitters. He’s kind of a real cerebral guy as far as hitting goes.” His mental toughness is sure to be tested again in 2014 as the young Lancers have their ups and downs along the way, but Boardman has one thing he wants his teammates to know every time they take the field. “That we can win this league,” he said. “If you saw last year we runruled Moeller and we came in second in the GCL. I tell them we are just as good. Everyone comes in saying ‘look how good Moeller is with all these (Division I) guys.’ Coming in knowing we are just as good as them, be tough and come out fired up every game and be ready to go every game.”

‘HOWL’ THEY WON

heart, but I’m really dreading the fact that it’s going to be over.” The baseball talk never stops in the Leigh household and while John knows he’s tough on his son at times, but there’s one thing he hopes for all

his players. “I’m hard on him and I have to be just because I’m his dad and his coach, but I hope he just loves the game like I did. That’s the one thing I hope all my players feel and I think he does. He loves the game.”

Russia reliving history - and it has ominous consequences I am amazed at the lack of understanding of world history by many supposedly educated people in this region as well as the President of the United States, who preposterously proposed a unilateral “reset” of relations with Vladimir Putin’s Russia. A leopard can not change his spots. Russia will never change its spots. History is history and history repeats itself. For example, in America, Adolf Hitler is hated for his genocide directives. Whereas, the man that signed a joint understanding with Hitler for the genocide of undesirables – Joseph Stalin of Russia – ordered the mass murder of over three times that of Hitler’s mass murders. Stalin – to “restructure the fabric of society” – started his genocide in East-

ern Europe years before Hitler took control of Germany. Do you despise Stalin as much as you do Hitler ? Ted In fact, the Day COMMUNITY PRESS Nationalist Socialist Labor GUEST COLUMNIST Party of Germany was trained in mass murders by Joseph Stalin and his followers. Stalin ordered the extermination of more than 20 million undesirables by starvation, gas, knives and guns. In the winter of 19321933, 7 million to 11 million Ukrainians died of starvation – men, women and children. If they tried to cross the border in search of food, they were shot on sight.

Stalin ordered the removal of food and gardens from all villages and had Ukrainians harvest all the grain from their fields for sale to the West – for revenues for mother Russia. Stalin exterminated three times as many people as did Hitler. Hitler was schooled by Russia’s Stalin and shown that the Western countries would not stop genocide. Hitler and Stalin signed a peace and cooperation treaty before World War ll. Stalin looked at Hitler as a friend- incrime. When a German soldier defected to Russia warning them that Hitler’s troops were massing on the Russian border and planned to attack Russia, Stalin had the soldier shot. Stalin could not believe that Hitler would break their treaty and attack him. Then Germany invaded Russia.

Germany could have conquered Russia. Stalin was so mad because of the betrayal that he ordered that the city of Leningrad be held at all cost. No retreat. In fact, Russian soldiers trying to retreat were shot by a line of other Russian soldiers instructed to shoot anyone leaving the front line. Even though Leningrad was in shambles, the Russians and the Russian Winter held the city and the Germans retreated. Germany was also fighting America on the Western front at the same time. Lenin, Stalin, Lenin, and now Vladimir Putin carry on the tradition of Russian conquest because they truly believe that they have developed a superior class of people. Karl Marx preached – “some classes of people have no reason to exist.” Inferior

“peoples” have been purged from the Russian ruling class. You did not really think that class warfare was dead did you? As you may recall, Bill Ayers (friend of Obama and his closest advisor Valerie Jarret) a few years ago in Chicago, in a speech, proclaimed that about 25 million conservative Americans would have to be removed for the new American Socialism to succeed. Do you think that Germany would have stopped their conquest at the Atlantic Ocean, if they were not defeated? Do think that now Russia will stop at the Atlantic Ocean after their reincarnation of the Soviet Union. Oh wait - this is the age of political correctness, that can’t happen, right? Ted Day is a resident of Montgomery and owns a business in Sharonville.

CH@TROOM April 9 question Would you support tolls for a new Brent Spence Bridge if that was the only way to get the bridge replaced?

“Absolutely. I'd support tolls even if there were other options to get it built. Toll roads and bridges are an everyday part of life in many areas of the country. We have somehow been sheltered from this reality. “Tolls are a reasonable way to pay for necessary infrastructure and places the cost on those who actually use it. Put up the toll booths and let's git 'er done!” R.W.J.

“Absolutely NOT! Can you imagine the traffic jams from both sides if this would happen! “Tell Congress to stop giving billions of dollars in foreign aid and keep the monies for projects like this at home!” O.H.R.

“Yes, I definitely would support tolls. I frequently travel in and around Chicago and have not found tolls cumbersome there. “The bridge is unsafe and needs to be replaced. If tolls can move the project forward ASAP I say go for it!” S.J.P.

“Yes - as long as discounted EZ Passes are made available for area residents who use the

“Yes! The bridge needs to be replaced and tolls make sense to me.”

THIS WEEK’S QUESTION Earth Day is April 22. What, if anything, do you do to observe Earth Day? Do you believe the day is more or less important than it was when it began in 1970? Why or why not?

bridge on a regular basis. As a life-long Cincinnati native I have watched this interstate bridge (one of the busiest in the US) deteriorate under the overuse to which it has been subjected since it opened in November of 1963. “It was obsolete the day the ribbon was cut, it's a vital north/ south commerce and transportation link and if tolls are the only way to get it built then we'll all have to bite the bullet and pitch in (better than paying for the Bengals stadium we were all hijacked into building)! 'Nuff said.” M.M.

“I would support the toll under any circumstances. We travel throughout the U.S., and have never had a problem with "pay to ride". If you use the bridge, you should help pay for it. J.K.

“Gosh. My Dad always said that the first thing government does for Americans with their hard-earned tax deposits is to have safe roads and efficient bridges for its citizens. Then the other stuff. “Congress, including our scared local reps (scared of losing sacred cow citizen money), are an embarrassment on this issue. No spine, no roads, no bridges. When's the election?” K.P.

“Yes, I grew up in Philadelphia where all the bridges to NJ were toll bridges. Then I lived for a time in Baltimore and found much of the same. “I have been in Cincinnati for many years without tolls and would consider those years 'a gift'. You use it, you pay for it is a better concept to me than our stadium taxes!” M.A.M.

“Tolls should only be used if the feds make a nationwide policy that they are no longer going to fund ANY bridge replacements ANYWHERE. “Otherwise, when the bridge becomes truly structurally deficient (risk of collapse) as opposed to functionally obsolete (not up to today's standards) they'll have no choice but to pony up money.” P.C.

“I would grudgingly support tolls on the new bridge, provided that would guarantee that there would be no additional tax burden placed upon Hamilton County property owners to pay for the bridge, like they did for the stupid stadiums (especially Paul Brown stadium). “Whomever agreed to the ridiculous terms for financing and maintaining Brown stadium ought to be severely chastised. Tolls would make a modicum of sense on the bridge, but only if the method of collection were E-ZPass style.” M.F.

“Tolls are not the only way to get the bridge built. But imagine turning a third of Covington or a fifth of downtown Cincinnati into the staging area for the cars and trucks that would have to slow down to make the payment. Or put the toll plaza at 275 in Erlanger. Then the new bridge could be much smaller because people would go around the loop.”

Rita dishes two recipes for two faith traditions As I do every year at Easter, I will be continuing a tradition with the little ones that has been in our family for generations: coloring Easter eggs with natural dyes, including onion skins, turmeric, beet juice and red cabbage. These natural dyes create soft hues of yellow, teal blue, light pink and brick Rita red. I’ve Heikenfeld shared RITA’S KITCHEN these recipes before, but if you need them, check out Abouteating.com. I’ll be showing Dan Wells and Jessica Brown, anchors on Fox 19 Saturday morning show how to make them. Tune in at 9:45 on Saturday, April 19. And remember those folks who may be alone. Give them a call, send a card or invite them to your Easter table. Blessings to each of you!

Bourbon mustard glaze for ham

We always have ham for Easter brunch. Each year I try to change up the glaze. Here’s what I’ll be making this year. Go to taste on glaze ingredients, using less, or more of each ingredient. 1-1/2 cups honey; 3/4 cup molasses. I use unsulphured 3/4 cup bourbon, 1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons orange juice concentrate, thawed Dijon mustard. I start with 3 generous tablespoons and go from there. Combine everything and heat in pan over low heat just until mixture heats through. Remove a

cup of mixture and set aside. As ham is roasting (at 325 until ham reaches 140 degrees, about 15 minutes or so per pound depending upon how cold the ham is when you put it in the oven, whether it has a bone, etc.) baste occasionally with glaze. When ham is done, remove drippings and add to remaining glaze. Heat up and serve alongside. Tip: To make it taste like the glaze you get in the package for honey baked glazed ham, add a teaspoon or more of pumpkin pie spice to the glaze.

Diane Deutsch’s Passover apple cake

The requests for this recipe continue every year at this time. I haven’t made it, but I recall Diane telling me she had to make 2 of these heirloom cakes, since her kids finished one by themselves. Batter 2 cups sugar 1/2 cup Canola oil 4 eggs 1 teaspoon vanilla 2 teaspoons baking powder 1 1/2 cups matzo cake meal Topping/filling 3 cups peeled finely diced apples 1-1/2 cups chopped walnuts 2 tablespoons sugar 1-1/2 teaspoons cinnamon Preheat oven to 350. Beat sugar and oil together until well combined. Add eggs one at a time beating well after each one. Add vanilla and baking powder. Add cake meal slowly, continue beating until well combined. Pour 1/2 mixture

For the safety of the children, no parents will be permitted in the hunt zones, but helpers will be provided for the 2- and 3-year-old hunt. Each egg will have a small prize or a slip of paper to claim one of hundreds of larger prizes. In addition, all children will receive a bag of candy when they turn in their eggs. » New Burlington Church of Christ sponsors a community Easter egg hunt from noon to 3 p.m. Saturday, April 19, at the church, 1989 Struble Road.

into 2 prepared (greased or sprayed) 8-inch cake pans or tube pan.. Mix together apples, sugar, nuts and cinnamon. Sprinkle 1/2 mixture into the pan(s) Top with the remaining batter. Finish cake off with remaining topping. (Diane takes a knife and swirls the batter). Bake until golden brown on top or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean: 40-45 minutes for 8” cakes, 60-75 for tube pan.

Polishing copper with ketchup - does it work? Yes! I tried it on my copper pan. I wiped a thin layer over the tarnished pan and let it sit about five minutes. The ketchup rinsed off, leaving the

pan shiny. It’s the acid in the ketchup that does the trick. Rita Nader Heikenfeld is an herbalist, educator, Jungle Jim’s Eastgate culinary professional and author. Find her

Tips from Rita’s kitchen

Cleaning pots & pans: After my cookware article, questions were raised as to the best way to clean baked on coatings of cheese in pan. Squirt dishwashing soap into the pan, cover with a bit of boiling water. Leave overnight, then wash clean.

‘Take Back the Night’ April 24 Home market value is down, but don’t cut back on insurance in the event of a disaster. On the other hand, replacement value insurance, while costing more money, will insure your home for 100 percent of the cost to rebuild exactly as it was. It’s important to compare policies from different insurance companies and ask if you’re receiving the lowest available rates before picking one company. Remember that home valued at $875,000 by one insurance company? Another company valued the same home at $955,000, thereby charging a lot more for the premium. So, it’s important to also get another estimate of the replacement value if you have any questions. Howard Ain's column appears bi-weekly in the Community Press newspapers. He appears regularly as the Troubleshooter on WKRC-TV Local 12 News. Email him atheyhoward@local12.com.

ly the same. All this means the premium to insure your home will continue to Howard increase Ain even HEY HOWARD! though the market value may have decreased. One insurance professional tells me people will often call asking why their premium increased. She says it’s partly because of storms and bad weather throughout the area and the nation, but also because the cost to replace the home has gone up due to inflation of materials and wage increases. Premiums will go up as necessary to allow insurance companies to not only make a profit, but to insure they have enough money to cover future disasters. It’s important to discuss the type of insurance you need to protect your house. There are two types: replacement value and market value. Market Value insurance, also known as actual cash value, can save you a great deal of money each year on your insurance premium. But it takes into account the depreciation of your home over time. Therefore, you won’t receive enough money to rebuild your house exactly as it was

Although home values have started going back up in recent years, in many cases they are no where near the valuations they had at the height of the housing boom. Just because the market value of your home may be down, that’s no reason to think you need to cut back on your homeowners insurance. In fact, a lot of homeowners are finding the cost to rebuild their house these days is far greater than they ever imagined. A house valued on the Hamilton County Auditor’s website as being worth $521,000, is valued by an insurance company at $875,000. The insurance company came up with the much higher value because it’s based on the replacement cost of the house. Meanwhile, the auditor’s valuation is based on the market value of the property. Market value can vary greatly depending on the location of the property. For instance, a house in a depressed city neighborhood may be valued at $100,000, while the exact same house located in a nice suburb could be valued at more than $225,000. However, neither of those valuations have anything to do with the cost to rebuild the house. In both neighborhoods the cost to rebuild would be exact-

Committee members are gearing up for the 25th annual Take Back the Night Cincinnati in April. Take Back the Night’s mission is to increase the community’s awareness about sexual assault while empowering, unifying, and freeing those who have survived incest, rape, or assault and honoring those who have not. The event will again coincide with Child Abuse Prevention Month and occur Thursday, April 24. The march will begin at the Peace Bell in Newport and end at Sawyer Point. This year’s theme is “Looking Back, Moving Forward.” Three speakers are scheduled to address participants and supporters at Sawyer Point. One speaker is a survivor of child sexual abuse, one is a survivor of military rape, and the third is a survivor of human trafficking. This year’s emcee is former Cincinnati
