SUMMER FUN planned for Springfield Township kids

Classes may find potential artists By Jennie Key

Springfield Township is a great place to be a kid, thanks to a number of classes and programs designed to keep the summertime blues at bay. Kimberlee Flamm, projects, events and communications coordinator for the township, says there are classes programs and special events scheduled all summer. The township has a series of art classes set up and the work from the classes will be on exhibit in the business community. The classes take place in the Springfield Township Senior and Community Center, 9150 Winton Road. Art in My Own Backyard is presented with support from the Carol Ann and Ralph V. Haile Jr./US Bank Foundation and Artswave. Designed for youngsters 9-14 years old, each class costs $15, which includes the materials. There will be a maximum of 15 students in each class. The classes meet from 1 to 3 p.m. every other Monday. Each class will feature a different type of art media taught by a high school art instructor. One unique project will be completed and then displayed for one week in a local business. The June 11 class focused on textile design and students were creating a mixed media summer-themed wall hanging. Projects from the Mixed Media Summer Themed Wall Hanging class will appear at Gourmet To Go June 15-21. The class on Monday, June 25, will

be a T-Shirt design “Print & Go” class. Students will carve relief stamps in their own design to create a personalized T-shirt. Projects from the Print & Go class will appear at Centennial Barn June 29 - July 5. On Monday, July 9, the class will focus on African paper bead making. Using a variety of papers, students will learn how to create beads in traditional African style, culminating a piece of jewelry. Projects from the African paper bead class will appear at WesBanco July 13 - 19. The class will make silk sun catchers on Monday, July 23. Using the resist technique, students will create their own painted sun catcher. Projects from the Silk Sun Catcher class

will appear at Buffalo Wings And Rings July 27-August 2. You can register online for the classes at The township is also planning a series of June Eco-Fun Fridays for youngsters 6 to 13. Springfield Township has partnered with Hamilton County to bring “science-ish” projects that will teach children about protecting the environment. Each week’s program will have a different theme. Hands-on classes will begin in the Springfield Township Senior and Community Arts Center and could travel outdoors. These free programs will be offered at 1 p.m. Edible Soils will be the topic on Friday, June 15, and the program will be led by the Hamilton County Soil and Water Conservation District. The program will focus on soil, all that soil supports and how soil is made. Everyone will make their very own yummy edible soils cup. The program on Friday, June 22, will look at macro-invertebrates and water quality with the Mill Creek Restoration Project. Youngsters will look at the kind of bugs that indicate that whether a stream is a good one, and then use some fun chemistry to do some water quality testing to look for some potential pollutants. On Friday, June 29, the soil and water conservation district will share how “Ohio Fossils Rock!” The class will talk about how Ohio came to be such a fossil-rich area and look at some actual 450 million-year-old specimens to identify them. The class will make fossil casts from an Ordivician-era Ohio fossil and some plaster of Paris. See SUMMER, Page A2

FOREST PARK — The Forest Park Branch Library is hosting numerous special events this summer meant to entertain and education children, teens and adults. The theme for this year's summer reading program is "Reading Rocks." Marty Meighen, teen librarian, said the library will have programs each week throughout the summer. There are weekly preschool and toddler storytimes. Librarian Denise Scretchen said typically 15 children attend the weekly storytimes, which remain popular. The library will also host two "Tales to Tails" events, which allows children to read a story to "Tater Tot," a therapy dog. "It gives them the chance to read to a noncritical listener," said Denise Scretchen, branch manager. Throughout summer, there will also be special visits from Honey Hill Farm Petting Zoo, a Hamilton County naturalist and the Storybook Puppeteers. For teens, the library hosts "Crafts with Darlene," which has teens making a variety of interesting crafts. Each week during the summer, teens will be making wind chimes, a bracelet made with hex nuts, a summer mosaic and purses or wallets made of bubblewrap. "The teens really like the crafts," Meighen said. Scretchen said as part of the reading program, children and teens can read books during the summer for chances to win prizes. She said children who either read five books or spend 2.5 hours reading; and teenagers who read four books or spend four hours reading; get their name on a musically-themed bulletin board. Teens and children can continue to read and move their name to the top of the bulletin board, all the while competing for prizes, such as books and a color-change water bottle. Along with the summer reading program, Meighen said the library will be serving lunch to school age children in the area 12:30 p.m. Monday through Friday from June 11 to Aug. 10.

In 2002, the members of Roger Bacon High School’s varsity basketball team accomplished a feat no other Ohio prep team could. They handed LeBron James his only loss to an in-state team in his fouryear high school career – and it came in the Ohio Division II state title game. White Oak resident Tony Meale tells the story of the Roger Bacon players and coaches who were a part of that championship season in his first book, “The Chosen Ones: The Team That Beat LeBron.” A St. Xavier High

School alumnus and former Community Press sports reporter, Meale said the story is Meale very personal to him because he graduated in 2003, the same year James graduated from Akron’s St. Vincent-St. Mary High School and went on to become an NBA superstar. Like many Ohio high school basketball fans at the time, Meale said he obviously knew who James was and kept tabs on the highly-touted prospect, but his junior year he also

closely followed Roger Bacon’s 2001-2002 squad. “I knew they were very good,” he said. “There was a lot of awe on my end.” When the Spartans advanced to the title game against James and the Irish of St. Vincent-St. Mary, Meale said he, and most everyone else for that matter, assumed Roger Bacon would be slaughtered in the championship game. Roger Bacon had other plans. They defeated James and his team 71-63, and proudly hauled a state championship trophy to Cincinnati. Meale said he was shocked to open the paper the Sunday after the game and read that Roger Bacon

won. They are the only Ohio prep team to ever beat James. His prep record against Ohio teams is 81-1. “I thought this would be a great time to honor the players and their coaches, and tell the true story of the team,” he said. He interviewed 11 of the 13 players from Bacon’s team and all of the coaches except for one; head coach Bill Brewer died in November 2007. He said he contacted James’s representatives for an interview, but they declined. Meale’s book is available online at

Mt. Healthy student must complete community service to get diploma By Jennie Key

Mount Healthy High School senior Anthony Cornist walked across the stage to graduate May 23, but he still doesn’t have a diploma in hand. That’s because when he took that walk across the stage, his family let loose with noise and celebration. Instead of his diploma, he received a letter that informed him that his diploma was being held in the school office because of the excessive cheering of his guests and he could redeem it with 20 hours of community service. Those hours can be split between Anthony and his family, or the senior can perform them all himself. Students receive a cover for their diplomas at graduation, then pick up the actual diploma at the high school office the following day. Instead of a diploma, Anthony received the letter. He wasn’t the only one. Of 205 graduates, four students received letters instead of diplomas. Mount Healthy Principal Marlon Styles Jr. said one family has already completed the community service hours and picked up the diploma. Two others have made arrangements to do the same. Traci Cornist, Anthony’s mother, says she is not sure how she plans to pro-



ceed, but she is hopeful the situation can be resolved. Whatever the resolution, she says she does not want her son to do the community service. “He did nothing wrong,” she said. “I want my child to have his diploma, so will I or my family do the community service? We’ll have to see. I will do whatever it takes, but it is not right to punish him.” Superintendent Lori Handler says the policy is put in place so all parents can hear their student’s name called during the ceremony. “When one group is making a lot of noise, the next student’s name cannot be heard,” she said. “I firmly believe that every student should be recognized.” She says the policy is clearly communicated. Students and parents are told, and parents sign a letter, saying they understand the policy when they make their graduation ticket request. To request tickets, parents sign a letter saying, in part: “I understand that I am responsible for the conduct of myself, child

Waycross obtains grant for camps By Rob Dowdy

Children this summer have another opportunity to learn media skills, thanks in part to a grant. Waycross Community Media recently received a $1,000 grant from the Greater Cincinnati Foundation and the Summertime Kids 2012 Volunteer Committee. Waycross will use grant to fund its video enrichment program at the Clippard Family and Powell Crosley YMCAs. Children in the camps will learn video produc-

and guests. Any disruptive behavior will result in my child’s diploma being held, and 20 additional hours of community service (must be) completed until it is awarded.” The policy was also announced at the graduation ceremony. She says the Cornist family contacted a television station and made the incident a public issue. “We have had no contact from the family,” she said Tuesday afternoon. “The first I knew that it had become an issue was when I was contacted by a reporter.” Traci Cornist says she never signed a letter. Her son, who is 19, filled out his own ticket request. She admits that even had she signed it, she is not sure that she could have contained the emotion of seeing her son graduating. But she says she wants to find a way to work the situation out. “We love the Mount Healthy school district,” she said. “I am not exactly sure right now how we will resolve this. I am frustrated, and I don’t agree, but we want to make this work.” The graduation ceremony can be seen on under the Community Programming tab. The person reading graduate names had to stop and repeat the name of the student who followed Anthony Cornist.

tion, from recording a program to editing and airing it. Camp participants will also take a field trip from the YMCA to Waycross Media to work in the production studio. “When we’re at the camps, we’ll be taking out portable equipment, and when they’re (at Waycross Media), they’ll use studio equipment,” said Chip Bergquist, executive director at Waycross. Bob Leibold, who has taught video production in and around Cincinnati since 1980, will assist Waycross during the summer camps. He said dur-

ing last year’s camps, he “loved it” because many children really grasped the use of production equipment. Bergquist said the summer camps used to be hosted at the Waycross television studio, but logistics led Waycross to work with local YMCAs last year. The camps will be Tuesdays and Thursdays at Powel Crosley YMCA on June 7, 14, and 21 – with a studio visit on July 12; at the Clippard Family YMCA on July 10, 17, 24 and 31 – with a studio trip on Aug. 7.

Winton Woods has a busy summer

Teachers become students

By Rob Dowdy

Between cutting costs and continuing educational programs while school is out, Winton Woods City Schools is preparing for a hectic summer. The district recently cut $1.7 million from its budget for the 2012-2013 school year. The district has eliminated high school busing next year for a savings of $112,000. The district eliminated 2.5 teaching positions at the high school for a savings of $125,000 and switched electricity and utility providers to save an additional $60,000. Business Manager Steve Denny said Winton Woods is bringing back a cost-cutting measure from last year that saved the district $15,000. The district will operate Monday through Thursday and will shut down all facility air conditioning and electricity throughout the summer. "We were pretty happy with that last summer," Denny said. He said along with the shortened work week, each of the buildings will be cleaned by a single large crew of custodians, as opposed to each school having its own team of custodians. Activity in the district isn't just focused on cutting costs. Winton Woods is hosting a number of educational programs as well. Denny said along with course recovery programs

Will pursue own adventures

Sheryl Gardner, founder of Envision Children, helps, from left, Michael Hudgins, 9, Ciarra Saunders, 11, and Nia Clark, 10, with a project on fossils. Envision Children is running an summer enrichment program in the district. ROB DOWDY/ THE COMMUNITY PRESS at Winton Woods Middle School that allow students to earn credits in classes they struggled in during the school year, Envision Children will be hosting its annual nineweek educational summer camps. Sheryl Gardner, president and founder of Envision Children, said the summer enrichment program will be studying the different ages – the dinosaur age, Victorian Age, Medieval Age, etc. – with projects and activities inside and outside the classroom. She said the program will hold an open house 6 p.m. Thursday, July 26, at

Winton Woods Elementary School to give the participating children a chance to showcase their various projects. “I’d love for the community to see what we’ve been doing,” Gardner said. Denny said the district is also offering free lunches all summer to district residents under the age of 18. The district has partnered with United States Department of Agriculture to offer free lunches 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. from June 4 to July 26 at the Greenhills Community Building, 8 Enfield St., and Winton Woods Intermediate School, 825 Way-

cross Road. Anyone 18 years old or younger can qualify for the free lunches. The district also has an eight-week program that is a partnership with Miami University. Students from the university's education program will offer one-onone reading intervention for struggling Winton Woods students. Denny said that program is mutually beneficial for both sides, as university students get experience, district students gain reading assistance and the program is free, though the district must pay for student transportation.


Fund for Teachers recently awarded eight Cincinnati educators $39,000 in grants to pursue learning adventures they designed. After proposing what they want to learn and where they want to learn it via an online application, a committee of civic, corporate, education and philanthropic leaders from across the state selected the winners. These preK-12 educators now embark on their global fellowships throughout the summer. Examples of the winning fellowships include these from the West Side: » Robert Hollifield – Gilbert A. Dater High School – who will navigate through seven national parks, three private nature reserves, three active volcanoes, and one coastal ecosystem in Costa Rica to introduce students to biodiversity outside their urban Ohio environment and ignite a passion to engage in local activities promoting environmental awareness

and protection. » Rachel Zerkle Deshpande – Oyler School – Explore the rich history and modern diversity of architecture across Italy, Spain, and France to help students appreciate “dwellings” including those comprising their immediate surroundings, as our most commonly viewed and popularly shared art form. » Allison Miller – Winton Hills Academy – Research coral reef ecology and the conservation of marine systems on Australia’s Great Barrier Reef with a team assembled by Miami University and the Cincinnati Zoo to integrate social studies/ math into an ecosystems unit supporting Next Generation Science Standards. » Megan Garrity – St. Ignatius School – Participate in marine ecology and conservation studies on the Great Barrier Reef off of Queensland, Australia, to establish a school environmental club and create an inquiry-driven, participatory science curriculum incorporating a community-based conservation component.

Global Village shows students how others live

Jelani Vaughn (front to back) Timmy Whyte and Emmanual Boateng clean the dishes as part of their Global Village experience. THANKS TO TERESA CLEARY.

Tré Lumpkin now knows that “having a door makes you feel like you’re safe.” The ninth-grader from the Academy of Global Studies at Winton Woods High School reached that conclusion while taking part in the Global Village Experience at Heifer Ranch in Arkansas. He was there as part of a group of students from AGS who learned how hunger and poverty affect daily life in many parts of the world. Lumpkin was one of three students who described the trip to members of the school’s business advisory committee, whose support helped make the learning experience possible. Lumpkin said his group was assigned to live in an urban slum, and that they had five plates, a spoon and some rice to either use or to trade with other villages for supplies. “We didn’t have anything anyone wanted or needed,” Lumpkin said, adding that his group did manual labor so that they were able to trade.

Yet his classmate, Narbada Gautam, who has been in the United States for just over two years, said for her the experience at the Global Village was “old.” Gautam, who is from Nepal, has experienced living in a real refugee camp. She described how her father made $5 a day and how her family would ask, “What are we going to eat tomorrow?” Now that they live in the United States, Gautam said “life is good here,” and people have enough to eat. Though she’s used to the American lifestyle, she told the adults that “little things make the world wonderful.” Kevin Jones, AGS coordinator, said that during the Global Village Experience Gautam knew how to make a fire for her group and was able to put embers in a bowl to transfer it to others. “Now all these students know how the rest of the world lives and are more likely to be compassionate to others,” said Jones. Madeline Johnson from Cin-

cinnati Financial told the students, “The knowledge that you have now is a gift that you can share with your friends.” Karlie Whitfield told the adults that a meaningful stop for her was at Central High School in Little Rock, Ark., where she learned about segregation, the “very courageous” actions of the Little Rock Nine, and the steps they took to change history. The students also visited the William J. Clinton Presidential Center where they saw a replica of the Oval Office and cabinet room and viewed historical government documents and gifts Clinton received during his time in office and toured the U.S.S. Razorback submarine. “We want to do meaningful trips with the AGS students each year,” said Jones. Terri Socol, the district’s executive director of teaching and learning, said the goal is to eventually be able to send the students out of the country.

Local talent at full Steam By Nick Dudukovich

Marietta College: Ungerbuehler went to work in 2012, batting .303 with 12 RBI in 20 starts for Marietta. The Roger Bacon grad helped lead Marietta to the 2011 D-III national title. Robby Sunderman, INF, Dayton: After pitching Moeller to the 2009 state title, Sunderman is trending upward at UD. As a freshman in 2011, he hit .300 while starting eight games. This past spring, he showed what he could do with a full season of work. For 2012, Sunderman batted .296 and drove in 29 runs while posting a .383 on-base percentage. He also scored 34 runs. Nick Priessman, OF, Eastern Illionis: A former Northwest Press Sportsman of the Year, Priessman had a stellar 2012 campaign for EIU. He batted .289 and hit five homers while knocking in 20 runs. The former Colerain standout also scored 26 runs, while posting a .376 on-base percentage. Tim O’Conner, OF, Indiana: The Elder alum went to Indiana on a football scholarship, but redshirted the 2010 season. And joined the baseball team prior to the start of the 2011-12 academic year. He hit .250 in 23 starts this spring.

If you’re a fan of local prep baseball, the Cincinnati Steam should provide plenty of entertainment this summer. The Steam features several players who played high school throughout Greater Cincinnati. The squad is a part of the wooden-bat Great Lakes Summer Collegiate League. Other southwest Ohio teams include the Hamilton Joes, Dayton Docs and Xenia Scouts. Here’s a list of some athletes playing for the Steam this summer: Mike Nastold, RHP, NKU: After being drafted in the 37th round by the Philadelphia Phillies, the Elder grad returned to NKU and had a stellar 2012 campaign. He went 3-1 with a 2.19 ERA in eight starts, while striking out 24 in 37 innings pitched. Matt Williams, INF, UC: Williams returns for his second stint with the Steam after batting .244 with eight doubles, one triple and 18 RBIs a season ago. The former CHCA standout hit .241 and drove in 19 runs for the Bearcats this spring. Josh Ungerbuehler, C,

Jake Madsen, 1B, Ohio: Madsen was named team captain of the Moeller squad in 2011—and when he got to college, he didn’t waste time leaving his mark. He hit .400 during a three-game series at Middle Tennessee State, and went 2-for-4 with an RBI in the series finale. Brian Korte, LHP, Indiana: The Elder grad posted a 7.66 ERA this spring, but struck out 18 batters in 24.2 innings pitched. Brian Kirschbaum, RHP, Huntington College: The former Cincinnati Christian hurler posted a 0.77 ERA in 35 innings pitched. He went 4-0 and recorded nine strikeouts. Ryan James, RHP, Transylvania University: The Elder grad held opponents to a .247 average while posting a 3.91 ERA. He made 13 appearances and pitched 23 innings. Selby Chidemo, INF, Xavier: In his second season with the Muskateers, the former Elder Panther batted .277 with 24 RBI. Drew Campbell, RHP, NKU: In his first season with the Norse, the 2011 La Salle grad started eight games and went 4-2, while posting a 6.32 ERA. For more information, visit

Protecting people from scams, fraud pieces of information that must be protected. Individuals with disabilities require assistance from careAlice Pvey COMMUNITY PRESS givers for many of their GUEST COLUMNIST daily needs. As a result, personal information is often accessible to many unauthorized people. We urge that access to personal information be restricted to the highest degree and that a shredder be used to discard sensitive data that is no longer required. Theft of medications, including narcotics and psychotropics, from individuals with disabilities continues to be a concern. The best step to avoid theft of medications is to establish a strict system for monitoring their handling. All medications should be stored securely and safely. Overstocking medications should be avoided, since this presents a much greater risk of theft. Personal property can include money in its various forms (cash, checks, credit, debit and ATM cards, etc.) as well as jewelry, electronics, clothes and even furniture. Cash needs to be secured appropriately and accounts reconciled on a frequent, scheduled basis to make sure expenses are

appropriate and balances are accurate. Larger, more expensive items like electronics and furniture should be inventoried (including serial and model numbers) and tracked to protect an individual’s property. To protect themselves, individuals need education regarding the risks of sharing information with strangers. Make sure that individuals know how to report a theft. Provide access to appropriate phone numbers to local law enforcement, County Board Service Facilitators and the hotline number. If you are connected with someone who has a disability that you suspect is being taken advantage of, please call our agency’s abuse and neglect hotline at 513-794-3308. This hotline is open 24/7. For more information about protecting yourselves and your loved ones from fraud and scams, visit Commissioner Hartmann’s web site at http:// fraud.

Use summer for college transition Congratulations to all the graduating high school seniors. Your hard work preparing for tests and college entrance exams has paid off and soon it will be time to be a “freshman” again. If you’re feeling a little apprehensive about this chapter of your life ending, it’s perfectly normal. Here are a few “College 101” tips to assist you with the transition into college life.


Take time this summer to open up the lines of communication with your parents. I don’t mean send them more texts than you probably already do. I mean it’s time to really talk. Sit down with them and discuss finances, if you need to open a checking account or get a credit card, get some laundry tips from mom or dad (hint: don’t wash a red shirt with white socks), and what to do if you get sick

while you’re away at school. Do they think you’re coming home every weekend? Do you think Peggy they’re going Minnich to drive six COMMUNITY PRESS hours to bring GUEST COLUMNIST you home every weekend? Don’t forget to discuss their expectations about staying in touch with them while you’re away at school.

Get to know your roommate

Having a roommate, if you’re living in a residence hall, is part of the college experience. Maybe you are signed up to live with a friend from high school or maybe you’ve decided to let the college select your roommate for you. Many colleges provide

A few years ago, Hamilton County Commissioner Greg Hartmann created the Coalition to Stop Fraud, Scams and Abuse. Hamilton County Developmental Disabilities Services is a member agency of this working group whose focus this month is on scams and fraud against residents with disabilities. Unfortunately, those with disabilities in our society have not been excluded from the increase in fraud and scams experienced by the general population in recent years. Individuals with disabilities are often more vulnerable, with less support and capacity to protect themselves. The Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities, which collects misappropriation data state wide, reported that the number of substantiated thefts involving individuals with disabilities increased by 52 percent, from 961 in 2010 to 1,459 in 2011. The thefts were primarily identity, medications and personal property. To stem this dramatic increase, we want to share information that can help prevent fraud. Protecting an individual’s personal information is the only way to reduce identity theft over time. Social Security numbers, birth certificates, checking and savings account numbers, and personal identification numbers (PINs) are all key


ways to connect with your roommate so you can begin to build a relationship. Figure out what you’d like your room to look like and begin planning what each of you will contribute to your new living space.

Learn time management

One of the true tests of going to college is learning to manage your time. Get an academic calendar and start to plot your class times. And remember, the two-hour class you have two days a week may require double that amount of time studying. See what type of activities you can get involved with: clubs, community service and intramurals are all great ways to meet new people and connect with the College community. Peggy Minnich is the director of admission at the College of Mount St. Joseph.

CMHA reform good for everyone

Recently, the Ohio House passed a bill to reform the board of the Cincinnati Metropolitan Housing Authority to add representation from Hamilton County’s suburbs; this is a bill that I strongly supported. The CMHA is the local authority for federally subsidized public housing in Ohio and is controlled by a board made up of five appointees – two appointed by the Cincinnati city manager, and one each by the probate court judge, Guest presiding columnist judge of the COMMUNITY PRESS Court of GUEST COLUMNIST Common Pleas, and the county commissioners. With recent efforts by the Department of Housing and Urban Development and CMHA to expand public housing into Hamilton County’s suburbs and with suburbs accounting for 63 percent of Hamilton County’s population, it is a common sense reform to add representation from our townships and municipalities. The bill, pushed by Rep. Lou Terhar (R-Green Township) and Sen. Bill Seitz (RGreen Township), would create two new board members to be appointed by the Hamilton County Municipal League and the Hamilton County Township Association. My November opponent disagrees. In fact, State Rep. Connie Pillich strongly opposed the bill during hearings, voted against it in committee and then left the House floor early without voting when it passed 62-31. She even played the race card while attacking those testifying in favor of the bill. What a breathtaking display of contempt for those who support this common sense reform – including many of her own constituents and her Democratic colleague who voted yes, Dale Mallory (D-Cincinnati), brother of Cincinnati Mayor Mark Mallory. Public housing can be a controversial issue because people are justifiably concerned about housing values and crime in their communi-

ties. While Americans are a generous people, there was and are serious concerns about the structure of public housing and its impact on the residents it serves and the community where it’s located. The perception that many people have is of large projects built in the 1970s that are dilapidated and riddled with crime and drug abuse. This perception was true throughout the ’80s and ’90s and often remains true today in areas that are entirely public housing, or in areas that have large concentrations of public housing. The good news is that public housing authorities have learned from their mistakes. They no longer takeover large city blocks and build the ugly apartment towers that were an eyesore for residents and a challenge for communities to police. Newer policies have attempted to reduce concentrations of public housing and poverty and have had great success. A recent study showed that Chicago and Atlanta reduced overall crime rates by tearing down large projects and replacing them with mixed income housing and dispersing public housing to other communities. The caveat is that there is a threshold of concentration where crime went up significantly in those communities. This is the reason I support CMHA reform. Mike Wilson is the Republican candidate for state representative in Ohio’s 28th District.

Ribs a good dish for Father’s Day

I still chuckle when I ask my husband, Frank, what he wants for Father’s Day. His answer has never varied in all the years we’ve been married: “Some peace and quiet and barbecued ribs.” The ribs are the easy part … and are still his favorite. The peace and quiet is another matter. Remember all the dads in your life, biological and otherwise. As I Rita tell you Heikenfeld each year, RITA’S KITCHEN send a card, give them a call, or invite them to join in the feast.

Grilled baby back ribs

Brine for up to 4 pounds of ribs: This is optional, but I hope you take the time to do it, since brining is a way of increasing the moisture holding capacity of meat, resulting in a moister product when it’s cooked.

1 cup Kosher salt 1/2 cup sugar

1 gallon cold water

Dissolve salt and sugar in water. Brine 4 hours, remove from brine, pat dry and proceed with rub. Rita’s rub: Sprinkle ribs with rub up to a day head. Leftover rub can be stored in the frig. Mix together: 6 tablespoons garlic powder 3 tablespoons chili powder 2 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon cumin 2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons salt 2 teaspoons coarsely ground black pepper 2 teaspoons Spanish hot or sweet smoked paprika or regular hot or sweet paprika 2 teaspoons allspice

Ribs: 4 pounds meaty baby back pork ribs, cut into portions To season ribs: Sprinkle rub on both sides. Put on baking sheet and cover with foil. Refrigerate at least 2 hours or up to l day. To grill ribs: Grill ribs over medium heat until tender and cooked, turning occasionally, about 25-35 minutes. Then baste with sauce. Brush each side generously. Continue grilling

Ribs, with a rub and grilled, makes a good Father’s Day dish. THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD until sauce forms a sticky coating, about 3 minutes per side, brushing more sauce on as needed. Serve, passing more barbeque sauce alongside. My hot and smoky barbecue sauce After cooking, adjust seasonings, adding more vinegar, etc. if you like. I always add more brown sugar to make it taste similar to Montgomery Inn’s. 4 cups catsup 1/2 cup cider vinegar 1/3 to 1/2 cup Worcestershire sauce 3/4 cup packed dark brown sugar 1/4 cup molasses 1/4 cup yellow mustard 2 tablespoons Tabasco

iron pan, like Lodge or Griswold, don’t hesitate to buy it. In my opinion, these gems are still the best as far as quality of iron and workmanship. Log onto my YouTube channel ( to see my video on seasoning iron skillets. Here’s the most current information. This is what Lodge cookware recommends, and they are an American company manufacturing American cast iron. Lodge’s recommendations are only slightly different than my video, which was made a few years ago. Wash cookware with hot, soapy water and a stiff brush. (Lodge says it’s OK to use soap this

time because you are preparing to re-season the cookware). Rinse and dry completely. Apply a thin, even coating of melted solid vegetable shortening (or cooking oil of your choice) to the cookware (inside and out). Place aluminum foil on the bottom rack of the oven to catch any dripping. Set oven temperature to 350-400 degrees. Place cookware upside down on the top rack of oven. Bake for at least one hour. After the hour, turn oven off and let cookware cool in oven. Store uncovered, in a dry place when cooled. Tip: I do use a bit of soap to wash my cast iron pans regularly, though the debate rages on about using soap at all. After the pan is completely dry, I’ll heat it 1 minute on the stove to open up the pores, then I’ll wipe a little oil all over the inside. As it cools, the pores close, keeping the pan seasoned.

Talk discusses legal issues of Alzheimer’s disease When a person first experiences the early stages of Alzheimer’s disease or a related dementia – a growing inability to concentrate, the sudden loss of memory, occasional disorientation – it can be a truly frightening situation. It can be equally difficult for the person’s family. To help individuals and their families confronted by the many challenges and questions associated with early stage dementia, the Alzheimer’s Association of Greater Cincinnati is offering an Early Stage Lecture Series at the Centennial Barn, 110 Compton Road. The next presentation, that is free to the public, will be: » Addressing Legal Issues after a Diagnosis by Mary Ann Jacobs, at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, June 28. Jacobs is a senior partner at Ritter & Randolph LLC and is a former president of the board of director of the Alzheimer’s Association of Greater Cincinnati. Her presentation will cov-

er various legal issues, including elder law and estate planning. To register, call 1-800272-3900 or visit: “After a person is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, accessing information about the disease and how to live with this illness is of the utmost importance. This lecture series is unique in that it is directed to the person in the early stages of the disease and his/her family,” said Marjorie Rentz, early stage program coordinator for the Alzheimer’s Association of Greater Cincinnati. ‘We are very fortunate to have these experts discussing these key issues.” The Alzheimer’s Association is the only nonprofit organization which offers a broad range of programs and services for people with the disease and their families, and represents their interests on Alzheimer-related issues though advocacy efforts.

Vinkolet is a winner for its white wine WineFerrante Winery & Ristorante of Geneva. All of the Director’s Choice award recipients have already received the Ohio Quality Wine designation. It was created in 2007 by the Ohio Grape Industries Committee and is assigned to wines made from at least 90 percent Ohiogrown grapes. These wines must also achieve at least 15 of 20 points on a sensory evaluation and pass a chemical analysis before receiving the quality seal. By focusing on wines made from Ohio grapes, the Ohio Quality Wine program is spurring the expansion and renovation of Ohio’s vineyards to meet the needs of Ohio winemakers. The program provides four judgings per year to include all possible

wine releases. Chemical analysis also sets this quality program apart from others by identifying flaws that can be missed when only sensory testing is used. The Ohio Grape Industries Committee is housed at the Ohio Department of Agriculture and provides wineries a means to market their top-quality wines against well-known California and European wines. To learn more about the program or for a complete list of Ohio Quality Wines, visit Ohio’s grape and wine production is an integral component of Ohio’s agriculture industry. It contributes nearly a half billion dollars to Ohio’s economy and accounts for more than 4,100 full-time jobs.

Erica Beimesche recently received the esteemed Gold Award from Girl Scouts of Western Ohio. She was one of 16 Girl Scouts who received the Girl Scout Gold Awards this year. Beimesche graduated from Northwest High School this year. Her project was community food tasting and food drive. With a heart to serve her immediate community, Beimesche realized that people were going hungry. She partnered with Corpus Christi Food Pantry in Cincinnati to brainstorm ideas on how she could help them meet their needs. Together, they decided they could partner with local grocery stores to create a food drive. She advertised her collection and raised support from her high school freshman mentoring group. To top off the drive, Beimesche created quarterly food tastings at the food pantry for clients to experience recipes they could create with the ingredients at the food pantry. She distributed recipe cards to the clients, who enjoyed the samples while they waited to shop. The food tastings were hugely successful and Beimesche has hopes that they will be continued by the pantry. As a13-year Girl Scout, she earned the Girl Scout Bronze and Silver

Beimesche awards. She serves as an editor for Write Out Loud, acted as a program assistant for five years and is a counselor-in-training. She was student of the month for the Exchange Club of Northwest Cincinnati, earned first team allleague in FAVC West for girls’ varsity tennis, served as captain of her varsity tennis squad and earned the Orchestra Director’s award. In addition, she serves as secretary for her high school’s National Honor Society, serves on the executive committee for the freshman mentoring program and is a chairperson for her student senate. She will attend college but is undecided on a major. Her adviser was Lena Spath. The Girl Scout Gold Award is the highest award that Girls Scouts in grades nine-12 may earn. The efforts put forth to

gerald’s vision of love into a powerful new resource for kids and parents, adding the perspective of people with disabilities. Brave Kids was launched in the San Francisco Bay area during March 2000.
