Cities discuss sharing fire service

Meeting described as ‘fact-finding;’ controlling costs is objective By Monica Boylson

City officials from Mount Healthy and North College Hill are contemplating sharing fire services. The city councils met Monday, April 8, to hear about the different types of shared fire service setups from Loveland Symmes Fire Chief Otto Huber who is leading the private fire company on the East Side. Residents and firefighters from both Mount Healthy and North College Hill also attended the

meeting with many questions. “I came because I wanted to know how my job was going to change,” North College Hill firefighter Rodney Beavers, 48, said. Mount Healthy City Manager Bill Kocher said the meeting was about “fact finding” and was the first time any of the council members had heard anything about the different ways in which they could share services. Huber talked about two common forms of shared services: a nonprofit fire company comprised of the two fire departments or a joint fire district which would allow the two departments to serve as one and they could levy taxes for that department. “I’m not here to give you my opinion, but rather show you the

different models,” Huber said. One person in the crowd asked how shared services would save money and North College Hill City Administrator

Mark Fitzgerald reminded him and others that the meeting was merely on the “conceptual level” and facts and figures would be introduced should the coun-

cils decide to proceed. “At the end of the day none of us have a dog in this fight other than the fact that we want to maintain the level of service that the fire departments provide,” he said. “That’s our objective.” Fitzgerald is a member of Loveland council and former Loveland city manager. North College Hill Mayor Dan Brooks agreed with Fitzgerald saying it was a “concept discussion, nothing more.” “We’re neighbors. We’re going to be neighbors for a long time and if we find a better way to row our canoe, great. If there isn’t OK too but at least we should talk about it,” he said. “My own personal opinion; we should look at all the models See FIRE, Page A2

Tree Commission takes root in Mount Healthy By Monica Boylson

In a long row behind the Mount Healthy City School District building, 39 saplings are taking root in what will become the Mount Healthy Urban Tree Commission's municipal tree nursery. With saplings donated to the

nonprofit tree commission, the group has started a cost-saving way of growing trees that will one day be planted along the city streets. “We thought it was a really good idea to have a project that would let us provide trees to plant around the city at a much reduced cost,” tree commissioner Karen Arnett said.

With ready-to-plant trees costing about $250 each, the tree commission thought it would be easier to grow trees themselves. Seedlings cost about 35 cents each. The group approached the Mount Healthy Local School District with the proposition to

In between lunch duty and disciplining a student, Finneytown Secondary Campus Assistant Principal David Kennedy took a few moments to talk about being named the Finneytown PTA’s Educator of the Year. “I’m not an awards-type Kennedy guy,” he said. “I’m not one to go out and look for accolades. So it makes it even more special to know that someone nominated me for the award.” While the PTA would not reveal the name of the person who nominated him, they did say that it was a Finneytown parent. Finneytown PTA Area Advisor Elise Fessler said Kennedy serves as a “bridge between the school and the PTA” “David does a very good job of that,” she said. “He has also written grants for the PTA and does a good job utilizing what the PTA has to offer.” She added that the PTA has 100 percent teacher membership, something she said she credits to him. “He’s been very encouraging of the PTA with the staff,”

she said. The West Chester Township resident and father of two has served as the assistant principal of Finneytown Secondary Campus for five years. Prior to his work in the district he was a teacher and administrator in Mount Healthy City Schools for 11 years. “The main reason I got into education was to help both kids and adults,” he said. “With education, you mix 500 kids in the school building with 80 adults, no two days are the same. Watching the kids grow and progress is rewarding.” Kennedy and five of his peers who earned the same award from the Northwest, Southwest, Three Rivers, Oak Hills and Hamilton County DDS school districts will receive their awards Wednesday, April 17, at a PTA ceremony beginning at 7 p.m. with desserts in the multipurpose room on the secondary campus. The award ceremony begins at 7:30 p.m. in the performing arts center. He is now in the running for the Hamilton County Council PTA’s Educator of the Year Award for Hamilton County which is also expected to be announced during the ceremony at the Finneytown campus. “David is very loyal and a See PRINCIPAL, Page A2 Vol. 76 No. 8 © 2013 The Community Press ALL RIGHTS RESERVED

in areas such as the Winton Road interchanges with Interstate 275 or the picnic grove in Central Park. “We don’t use them in the median because these chips are large,” Hodges said. “It’s not finely ground mulch like you generally see in landscape beds.” It does provide a service to residents of Forest Park and it saves money. The city doesn’t have

to buy mulch for Hodge said the city currently has a lot of chip material being held in a salt barn. “We have more than normal right now because we have a tree removal project underway,” he said. “We retained a lot of the tree trunks and plan to bring in a big tub grinder for those.” For information about the pick up program, call 513-595-5285.

At this point, it’s going to be up to the city managers to gather more information and we’re go-

Mt. Healthy seeks sponsors for summer movies By Monica Boylson

Representatives from Mount Healthy are planning summer events for the whole family and they’re looking for your help. The city is seeking sponsors for its free Friday Night Flicks program that kicks off at dusk Friday, June 21, at the city pool. Sponsors would be in charge of a particular movie night, would pick the flick and make sure it goes off without a hitch. “The city’s goal is to keep most of the events at little or no cost, so offering a free movie night is a

way for a family or a couple to have a night out and not spend a lot,” City Manager Bill Kocher said. “The sponsor would decide what the movie is. There are plenty of entertainment options out there looking to get deep in people’s pockets and that is not the goal here.” He said the sponsor would not have to pay any money but would rather be in charge of advertising and promoting the event. The city would make sure it is staffed. “It’s a great way to get out, meet your neighbors and help provide familyfriendly entertainment in your community,” he said.

“If it’s done by a group or business, it’s a great way to promote your organization, but there does not need to be an organization behind this, it could be a few neighbors doing it as well.” City Council President Don Crank said Friday Night Flicks have been a tradition in Mount Healthy. “The park has always been a hub in the summer,” he said. “People really seem to enjoy it.” For more information about summer events, visit To sponsor a Friday Night Flick, call the city at 9318840.

Midlife crisis play’s theme By Monica Boylson

A stray dog will test the 22-year marriage of Greg and Kate as their careers start to take two different paths. Greg’s career in financial trading is coming to a halt while Kate’s teaching career is just starting to take off. Community theater group Center Stage Players will perform “Sylvia” – a play about a dog that challenges a couple’s relationship – at the North College Hill City Center, 1500 West Galbraith Road. Performances will be at: » 8 p.m. Friday, April 26, and Saturday, April 27; » 2 p.m. Sunday, April 28; and » 8 p.m. Thursday, May 2, Friday, May 3, and Saturday, May 4 Director Dee Dunn, 71, College Hill, gave a synopsis of the play: “Greg brings home a

dog and his search for a solution for a better life.” Hughes said he related to the character after he had a sort of midlife crisis himself. After years working in the corporate world, he said he stopped working and rode his bicycle from Cincinnati to Seattle. “I identify to Greg on that level,” he said. Dunn said the show will relate to many people. “Any dog lover will enjoy this play,” she said. “They’ll relate with a warm feeling what it’s like to really love an animal and it’s just a real, nice, sweet piece. It’s so touching.” Tickets are $15 for adults, $12 for seniors, students and groups of 10 or more. To buy tickets, visit www.centerstage or call the ticket hotline at 588-4910. Parents should be advised that the play contains some profanity.

dog he found in the park, or that has found him, bearing only the name ‘Sylvia’ on her name tag. Sylvia becomes a major bone of contention between husband and wife. She offers Greg an escape from the frustrations of his job and the unknowns of middle age. To Kate, Sylvia becomes a rival for Greg’s affection and Sylvia thinks Kate just doesn’t understand the relationship between man and dog. “The marriage is put into serious jeopardy until after a series of hilarious and touching complications, Greg and Kate learn to compromise and Sylvia becomes a valued part of their lives.” Dave Hughes, who plays Greg, said his character suffers a midlife crisis and wants to find something more tangible than his job. “Greg sees a solution to the void in his life with the dog,” he said. “His life goes completely upside down because of the

Shirts celebrate academic achievement

When it comes to academic pride, every day is spirit day at Winton Woods Middle School. Principal Lisa Votaw said that while Fridays are always “Spirit Day” for seventh- and eighth-graders to don their school, athletic or club T-shirts, “students are allowed to wear their scholar T-shirts whenever they want.” Two classes, eighth-grade Spanish I and eighth-grade geometry, actually created special T-shirts for themselves af-

ter the first quarter when both classes achieved A averages as a group. “That’s one of the success stories here at Winton Woods Middle School,” said Spanish teacher Lisa Giblin, whose second bell students achieved the honor. “Both my class and (Tim) Tilton’s fifth bell geometry classes are advanced classes so the high GPAs are even more impressive.” Giblin’s class continued its academic accomplishment for

second quarter and is striving to do it all year. Tilton’s class missed the A average for second quarter by less than one point, but he knows his students can raise the class average again for the rest of the year. “This is something that many classes, working together and supporting each other in a collaborative way, can accomplish,” said Giblin. “We’d love to see the number of classes with A averages grow and grow.”

Like most gardeners in wintertime, members of Winton Woods Middle School’s Garden Club are busy looking at catalogs and researching the flowers they want to plant in the school’s sensory garden, which was started in the fall. The sensory garden is divided into four sections, each marked with special signs designed and painted by art teacher Patty New and library/ media center assistant Susie McGraw. “The eye represents flowers that have an unusual ap-

pearance,” said McGraw. “The nose is flowers that have a wonderful smell. The hand represents flowers that have a distinctive feel, and the mouth represents herbs and flowers that are edible.” New added that garden club members are currently growing many of the plants from seed that will be used in the garden, including plants for the vegetable garden. Funding for the sensory garden was provided by the Winton Woods Educational Foundation through a Go

Green grant Winton Woods Middle School received in 2011. “Shroyer’s Nursery also came in for us and removed grass and brought in topsoil and mulch to prepare the garden for the plants,” said McGraw. Members of the Garden Club meet on Tuesdays after school. “Any community members who feel the urge to dig in the dirt this spring should let us know,” said McGraw.

Expectations high for Roger Bacon By Tom Skeen and Nick Dudukovich

The yellow balls are crossing the net as the 2013 boys’ tennis season is underway.

Aces are being served all over the Tristate, so here is a look at how the 2013 volleyball season is shaping up in the Hilltop Press readership area:

St. Xavier

Russ King is off to a fast start in his10th season with the Bombers. Between the two varsity teams, the Bombers are 2-1 with shutout victories over Elder and Walnut Hills. The lone loss came at the hands of Mason 3-2. Matt Duma – who was the Greater Catholic League South Division Athlete of the Year last season - played No. 1 singles last season, but will be challenged by Matt Santen for that top spot on the team in 2013. Santen was a secondteam all-league player in 2012. Elliot Bostick has a lockdown on the No. 3 singles position. In doubles action, Connor Aronoff and Jay Shanahan are likely to see most of the action at the top spot, but will be challenged by freshmen Neil Bostick and Andrew Niehaus, according to King. With an experienced group of kids at his helm, King believes this could be one of the best groups of players he has every worked with. “This is a really good group of players,” he said. “Cooperative, coachable and dedicated are common qualities of players on this team. ”

Expectations are high at Roger Bacon as the boys volleyball team seeks to replicate the success of a season ago, when the squad played in the Division II state title game. That team lost to Alter in the championship match, and this year’s version of the Spartans will feature a lot of new faces, but Goller is still optimistic. “(Expectations) are always high. We’ve got a high standard at Bacon and we hope to continue that tradition with the guys we have this year,” he said. The core of the squad features senior returnees Erik Edwards and Matt Brichler, along with sophomore Bobby Wilking. Edwards leads the GCL Central with 77 kills in 26 games (through April 11), while Wilking leads the conference with 59 digs, according to Fresh faces looking to make an impact include junior Jake Bottom, Max Bishop, Stephen Post and sophomore Alex Brenner. Brenner and Bishop have played a vital role in setting up scoring opportunities and have combined for 183 assists through April 10. The squad is off to 4-5 start, and while the Goller and company were disappointed with a four-game loss to Fenwick April 9, the coach likes his team’s attitude. “…They are sill very driven and they are not complacent and there’s no hangover from last year,” Goller said.

their first three matches. But the squad rebounded with a win over the defending Division II state champions, Alter. The squad’s roster is upperclassmen heavy, with seven seniors listed on the roster. Those players include Mitch Dorsey, Josh Schneider, John Volmer, Brett Cooper, Jeff Goldschmidt, Tyler Blanck and Brent Gatermann.

St. Xavier A 2-1 start isn’t a bad thing considering St. Xavier and coach Bill Ferris graduating every starter from the 2012 team. His team may not be where he wants them just yet, but he is still working to find the chemistry needed to excel at the varsity level. See VOLLEY, Page A7


Justin Anderson is back for his senior season and takes over the No. 1 singles position as well as being a team captain for the Wildcats and coach Charles Knee. Senior Seth Luken holds the No. 2 singles position and along with Anderson, provides the experience for the team. “They have been playing for five or six years now,” Knee said of his two seniors. “They’ve done very good this year and have a good chance with some of our opponents.”

St Xavier’s Elliot Bostick hits a return at the Linder Family Tennis Center in Mason. Duma is expected to be one of the top two singles players for the Bombers in 2013. FILE ART

Freshman Aaron Palmer has shown good promise at the No. 3 singles position according to Knee, especially for a kid who has been playing the game for only a little more than a year. Juniors Luke Cobbs and Mitchell Gordon are paired up at No. 1 doubles, while the No. 2 team is still in some flux with inexperienced players being shuffled around to find the right combination. “My doubles teams are very inexperienced,” Knee said. “They are just getting used to competition and control with where they are hitting the ball.”

The Lancers will be a busy bunch trying to knock off St. Xavier, Moeller and Elder in the Greater Catholic League’s South Division.

The numbers aren’t there yet for the Warriors, but coach Morris Chapman is doing what he can to maintain his tennis pro-



gram as they compete as an independent this season. Makiah Dawson is at the No. 1 singles position for the second consecutive season and he is just a sophomore. After learning the ropes last season, Chapman can already see his top player maturing on the court. “This year he is hitting the ball a whole lot better,” the coach said. “… What I’ve seen him improve at is his maturity on the

court as far as being able to kind of see what his opponent is doing and then reacting to his opponents weakness.” Devin Richard is back for his junior season and is at No. 2 singles, while first-year player Daniel Augustine takes over the No. 3 spot. Chapman said Augustine – who also plays soccer - just picked up a racket three weeks ago and is already making tremendous strides.

Immigration reform must benefit America in long run Compared to many countries on this earth, the United States is a young nation with a relatively short history. Only the Native Americans can claim a presence in this land that may reach into prehistory. The story of this nation is in large measure a recent history of immigrants, one that is closely tied to cycles of modern economic boom and bust and the corresponding need for labor. This nation was never hesitated to harness labor from abroad, a practice that sadly at one time included the importation of involuntary

workers or slaves. In the beginning of the nation, there was no immigration law, but now, some 300 years latCharleston er, the buzz to C.K. Wang COMMUNITY PRESS how to repair a “broken” imGUEST COLUMNIST migration system. People appear rather divided on how this can be done. Like the Gordian knot, a solution is at hand – because American immigration law today is Federal law, any re-

form must be made by Congress in the best interest of, and for the nation. The national interest ideally must be for the economic well being of the United States in the long run. Of course. given the quick pace of change in the world, the long run is not a matter of centuries, but it should not be the short election life-cycles of our politicians. Perhaps 10 to 20 years is a good target to aim for. This range is based on the fact that Social Security is projected to run out of funds to maintain full benefits in 2033 and Medicare even earlier in 2024. The reason is the

aging of Americans who are alive today and our low birth rate. To keep the promise of financial and medical security for those who are currently working and paying for the care of those already retired, there is a national interest in replenishing the supply of workers to replace and support those who have retired. This should therefore be the logical goal of current and future efforts at reforming the national immigration system. Adult immigrants come ready and willing to work at all skill levels and ideally the

future immigration law of the United States should flexibly permit the employer to specify, through the market forces of supply and demand, the mix of skill sets that are optimal for the national economy. However, in addition to this pragmatic economic focus, our immigration policy must also simultaneosly be sensitive to that foremost need common to all humanity, the natural desire for family unity.

Before it’s too late: What does that mean?

In his recent State of the Union address, President Obama said, “For the sake of our children and our future, we must do more to combat climate change; we must act before it’s too late.” The president is referring to what scientist call a tipping point of no return. The concept of a tipping point is illustrated by pushing a ball up a hill to the top of the hill and then sending the ball over the top, the tipping point, where the ball now rolls unassisted down the hill, gaining momentum as it goes. A recent scientific study proved beyond doubt that the rapid global climate change we are experiencing is caused by human activity, warming the earth to temperatures not

reached in the last 11,000 years since the evolution of the human species. The main cause of global warming is use of Joanne fossil fuels; Gerson COMMUNITY PRESS coal, oil and natural gas, GUEST COLUMNIST that when burned release CO2, methane and other gases into the atmosphere trapping heat in the same way a greenhouse traps heat. Thus gases released from fossil fuels are commonly called “greenhouse gases.” When the greenhouse gases in the atmosphere reach a certain level, a tipping point of no

return is reached. Humans will not be able to reverse the release of new greenhouse gas emissions because the earth will release CO2 and methane gases buried in the oceans and permafrost through feedback loops, self-perpetuating cycles that further increase global temperatures. NASA scientist Dr. James Hanson states “the planet will become like Venus, hot and uninhabitable unless we take immediate and drastic action to stop using fossil fuels. The gas and oil industry will soon put the amount of CO2 and methane into the atmosphere to a level so high that a climate tipping point of no return will be reached.” Hanson writes, “There is

Want to be an Olympic athlete? When you watch the Olympics what word comes to mind? Probably, amazing! As you watch athletes perform these amazing feats of power and strength you probably also think to yourself, “I could do that. I could train. I could compete.” Your heart starts racing, a grin spreads across your face, you hit Patrick Harner the weights COMMUNITY PRESS later that GUEST COLUMNIST afternoon, go for a jog with “Eye of The Tiger” playing in your ear buds, you imagine people cheering your name. A former college athlete, I didn’t want to stop competing, but being terrified of roller coasters and not a fan of traveling at fast speeds, not to mention I grew up about 800 miles from the nearest skeleton track, I never dreamed I would find myself zooming down a mile of ice at the Olympic Training Center with thoughts of competing for the U.S. National Team. Now, I didn’t go on to compete in the Olympic Games or on the U.S. National Team, but I did take that laborious journey to train towards that goal,

the journey of a lifetime, and this is possible for a lot of other athletes as well. Skeleton is a world shrouded in mystique. I’d like to remove that mystery and make skeleton accessible to you. Skeleton is similar to luge or bobsled, but one person, on a tiny sled, cruises down an ice track, head first, with the athlete’s chin inches from the ice, navigating hair-pin turns, at speeds up to 85 miles per hour and experiencing up to 4Gs.

still time to act and avoid a worsening climate, but we are wasting precious time.” Natural systems that have protected the planet from dire climate change are eroding. If they erode enough due to human activity a new global climate will commence that will not support human life on the planet. The major systems scientists monitor are: loss of forests including the Amazon Rain Forest, loss of the cooling white reflective surfaces due to melting of Arctic and Antarctic and Greenland ice and glaciers, rising ocean temperature and melting of permafrost releasing millions of tons of methane gas. The solution to mitigate climate change is to switch to

renewable sources of energy such as wind, solar and hydroelectric power that do not release greenhouse gases. European countries have quickly moved from fossil fuels, to renewables sources of energy. In order to wean this country off its addiction to fossil fuels we must choose leaders and politicians that appreciate the urgency and necessity to switch to renewables, now, before we reach the tipping point of no return.

Simple yeast roll recipe is great for beginners Mother Nature is letting me know that spring is really here. Looking out my kitchen window into the woods, I see trees budding out and the forsythia is in bloom. My husband Frank got the garden plowed and also plowed gardens for our neighbors, so everyRita one is Heikenfeld eager to RITA’S KITCHEN start planting. We got most of our root veggies planted, including potatoes, radishes and onions. The salad greens are already popping up, as are the peas. I worked in my herb garden for days hoeing out the chickweed, which is in fact a winter annual. I gave as much to the chickens as they would eat, and I also put some in our salads. Chickweed contains calcium, zinc, iron, vitamins A and C and some B vitamins. Plus it’s an appetite suppressant! Our ancestors happily picked chickweed and dandelion leaves to replace vitamins and minerals lost during a meager winter

Preheat oven to 375 and bake until light golden, about 11-15 minutes. Brush with butter.

Yeast 101

Regular yeast: For the most part, this needs to be proofed in warm water (105-115 degrees) for several minutes until it starts to foam. Fast/rapid rise/quick yeast: A more aggressive strain that can be mixed in with dry ingredients. It also tolerates higher heat. Step by step photos for rolls: Check out my blog.

Give Rita’s simple yeast rolls a try if you are a beginner or intimidated by making homemade rolls. THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD

diet devoid of fresh greens. As long as you have a positive identification and the plants are “clean," enjoy them while they are young and tender.

Simple yeast rolls

I was trying to make rolls similar to the Hawaiian sweet yeast rolls that you buy. I didn’t quite make it texture wise, but the taste is similar. If you’re new to baking or intimidated by it, try these. I think you’ll be pleased with results. I’m using fast/rapid rise yeast here, not regular yeast.

21⁄4cups flour 1 ⁄4cup sugar 1 package (1⁄4oz.) fast/rapid rise/quick-rise yeast 1 ⁄2teaspoon salt 3 ⁄4cup warm water (120-130 degrees) 3 tablespoons butter, melted, plus extra for brushing on rolls

Combine 11⁄2 cups flour, sugar, yeast and salt. Add water and 3 tablespoons butter and beat on medium speed until smooth, a few minutes. Blend in rest of flour to form soft dough. Knead a few minutes. This makes dough smooth and develops gluten for texture. (Bless

the dough by making a cross with your hand. It’s a way to thank the Lord for your abundant blessings). Cover, let rest for 10 minutes. Roll to a 1 ⁄2-inch thick or so, cut with biscuit cutter or glass. You’ll get nine circles of dough if you use a 21⁄2-inch biscuit cutter. Place 2 inches apart on sprayed cookie sheet. Brush with butter. Cover and let rise in warm place until doubled, about 40-50 minutes.

Andre’s Jarlsberg cheese spread

You are the best readers and once again, came to the rescue. If you recall, Kim Martin wanted to make Kroger’s Jarlsberg cheese spread at home. Gail C., a Burlington reader, told me she had asked one of Kroger’s deli employees a couple years ago about the spread and was told it contained just shredded Jarlsberg, mayo and red onion. Andre, another reader, forwarded his version and I’m sharing

that today. He said he and others in his family agree “it is just as good as store bought." Andre grates the cheese with the Cuisinart grating blade. He chops the onion fine (about a 1/4 inch) by hand since Andre feels like hand dicing will result in less liquid onion. Smart tip! Blend together 10 oz. or so Jarlsberg cheese 1 ⁄2large red onion, 1⁄4-inch dice Mayonnaise to taste


Tip from Rita’s kitch-

Jarlsberg is mild, buttery, nutty and slightly sweet.

frame colonial revival, Windy Hill was built in 1936 for real estate broker Albert J. Mayer Jr. and his wife, Angela. It contains

beautiful antiques and artwork, a stunning kitchen, and a hand-painted mural that recreates a scene from Chinese fab-

ric. The house has been lovingly restored by its present owners. One of the first international style residences

built in Ohio, the Frederick and Harriet Rauh House was rescued from dilapidation and restored by CPA to its 1938 elegance. Elements of the original landscape plan also have been recreated. The tour is CPA’s first chance to share this modernist treasure with the public. Both the Mayer and Rauh homes are on

multi-acre, wooded lots with winding trails. Founded in 1964, CPA (formerly known as the Miami Purchase Association for Historic Preservation) is a non-profit organization dedicated to advocacy and education for the preservation of the historic built environment in the Greater Cincinnati area.
