gather more information and we’re going to do everything we can to maintain the level of service.” The councils heard earlier this year from Loveland Symmes Fire Chief Otto Huber, who is leading the private fire company on the East Side. The talks are still in discussion; both councils have said they aren’t trying to make any moves right away, just considering options. Newman, from the Deer Park Silverton department, said combining two fire departments into a joint fire district is a long process as the two departments need to develop a plan for salaries, hours and equipment. He said the two fire departments met for three years to come up with a comprehensive plan and then presented it to their city councils. Their

joint district was formed in April 1999. Joint fire districts work as one department, share costs and emergency runs, and serves as its own taxing authority, Newman said. North College Hill Deputy Fire Chief Steve Conn said that he supports the idea of forming a fire district with Mount Healthy. “The biggest thing we’re talking about is the sustainability of our departments,” he said. “We’re already working with Mount Healthy. It would just be more formalized.” Conn said because of their proximity, the two fire departments often provide additional supports for one another on emergency runs. “We just have to look at

NCH, Mt. Healthy talk joint fire district

North College Hill — City Council hosted a work session Monday, June 10, with Mount Healthy City Council to discuss shared fire services. Deer Park Silverton Joint Fire District Chief Donald Newman gave a presentation about forming a joint fire district. “I think it’s a great thing to do,” he said. “But the biggest fallacy is that you’re going to save money right away. You gradually work into the savings.” Mount Healthy and Crank North College Hill are discussing shared services to help same money. Both cities want to try to get long-term savings from sharing services but still maintain the level of service. Mount Healthy Mayor Joe Roetting said Conn in April it is important for the cities to get together and look at ways to save money. “This is 100 percent about cost,” he said in April. “We’re facing budget restrictions and we need to look at the bigger picture and see the long-term savings. At this point, it’s going to be up to the city managers to

Springfield Twp. The police department will add another person to its roster of FBI-trained officers. Assistant Police Chief Rick Bley will head to the FBI National Academy, a professional course of study for U.S. and international law enforcement leaders, on Sept. 29. Bley, 40, will attend the invitation-only police academy for three months to learn leadership skills, behavioral science and other courses offered by the FBI and will graduate Dec. 13. “I’m excited about it and I’m really looking forward to seeing the challenges and bringing the new ideas back here to the police department,” he said. Bley was nominated by the Springfield Township Police Department and was chosen by the FBI to join 250 officers for a 10-week academy in Quantico, Va. The mission of the academy is “to support, promote, and enhance the personal and professional development of law enforcement leaders by preparing them for complex, dynamic, and contemporary challenges through innovative techniques, facilitating excellence in education and research, and forging partnerships throughout the world.” Police Chief David Heimpold, 62, said he is proud of Bley. “The FBI academy is the premiere leadership college,”

he said. “In the past 30 years we’ve only had three people go through it.” Officers on staff who’ve completed the FBI training are Heimpold, Assistant Chief Robert Browder and Lt. Dave Schaefer. The chief said he sets such high standards for the department because he wants to best serve Springfield Township. “The goal is that the township can feel comfortable that the people leading their police organization are well trained and well-educated in leadership and management practices,” he said. Bley said he is looking forward to the learning experience. “This is one of the highest trainings you can get in law enforcement,” he said. “I hope to continue what the chief has established as a high expectation of quality leadership.”

New Winton Woods schools superintendent starts July 1 By Monica Boylson mboylson@communitypress.com

“My current commute is about 45 minutes.” Winton Woods School Board President Tim Cleary Smith announced during a Monday, June 10, work session that

what’s going to benefit both communities,” he said. Mount Healthy Fire Chief Steve Lawson said he is in favor of a joint fire district especially because the city does not offer paramedic services. “We would be able to improve services in Mount Healthy,” he said. But he said that not every firefighter at Mount Healthy wants to share services with another city. “There have been mixed emotions,” he said. “Some of the people that have been here the longest, since back when it

was a volunteer fire department, some of those guys would like to keep it like it is and not change anything.” Conn said that the biggest hurdle to get over would be for departments to lose their identity. “The biggest thing each community, in theory, would lose is their own fire department,” he said. “What you would gain in a joint venture is a more consistent response between both departments.” Mount Healthy City Council President Don Crank said he wants to make sure the cities, if they choose to combine services, try to come up with the most balanced way of doing it. “We have to look for

ways to decrease costs but I’m afraid of losing our autonomy,” he said. North College Hill City Council President Kathy Riga said she prefers the joint district model to the private fire company model which was presented to the councils in April. She added that the councils do not plan to take action on shared services yet. “We’re still in the talking stages,” she said. North College Hill Administrator Mark Fitzgerald said that he and Mount Healthy City Manager Bill Kocher will work to arrange a third informational work session for the councils to learn about contracting fire services to other larger departments.

opportunity,” Smith said. The current Cincinnati Public School District assistant superintendent was chosen out of 24 applicants. This was the second superintendent search after school board could not find a replacement in March after a monthslong search. Former Superintendent Camile Nasbe retired in December; former Bethel-Tate Local School District Superintendent Jim Smith is serving as interim superintendent. “Anthony brings a new perspective and

background,” Cleary said. Smith has worked in the Cincinnati district since 1991, and was principal at Robert A. Taft Information Technology High School from 2001 to 2011. He also was an education coordinator at the Jewish Hospital of Cincinnati, a teacher in the Archdiocese of Cincinnati and was a community resource adviser for the Cincinnati Community Outreach Program. Smith, who was graduated from Kentucky State University with a double major in education and sociology and criminal justice, has a master’s degree in education administration from the University of

Smith said he met with the board president and interim superintendent on Thursday, June 13, to discuss a transition plan. “My goals for the first 90 days is to meet all of the teachers, all the students, the parents and the community to get their input about what they believe the district needs to do to be outstanding,” Smith said. He said he will be focused on making sure teachers are prepared for new education expectations such as the third grade reading guarantee and new Common Core standards. “I will meet with the teachers and make sure they have the professional development that they need,” he said. “I also want to talk with the students and learn what their aspirations are.” In the meantime, he said he’s looking forward to his first day. “There are really good things happening in Winton Woods,” Smith said. “I just can’t wait to be a part of it.”

Hinkle directs alumni concert for 35th year By Tony Meale

westnews@communitypress.com

Mount Healthy — Patti Harness graduated high school 43 years ago, and she still can’t call her former Mount Healthy music teacher Russell Hinkle by his first name. “I can’t call him Russ – and he knows that,” Harness said, laughing. “So many of us still call him Mr. Hinkle. He commands respect from us. He’s earned it.” Hinkle, who taught at Mount Healthy from 1960 to 1985, introduced Harness to the flute when she was in fifth grade. She didn’t know it then, but the instrument would become a staple of her life.

In fact, she – along with the rest of the Mount Healthy Alumni Band – will perform in the annual concert in The Russell Hinkle Fine Arts Auditorium at 3 p.m. Sunday, June 30, at the high school. Hinkle, 83, will direct the band for the 35th straight year. “I get to see the people I haven’t seen in many years and also people that come back every year,” Hinkle said. “It’s almost like a reunion.” The concert features a nice mix of symphonies, show tunes, marches and patriotic staples, including “The Star-Spangled Banner” and “Stars and Stripes Forever.” “We generally try to

feature a few of our fine soloists,” Hinkle explained. “This year, we’ll have five or six solos with the band accompaniment.” The band is comprised

of 45 to 60 Mount Healthy alumni, some of whom graduated in the 1940s. They practice together twice a year – once on the Friday before the event, and once on Saturday – before taking the stage each summer on the last Sunday in June. Not every band member can attend both practice sessions. “Sometimes we don’t know how it’s going to turn out, but it always turns out well,” Harness said. “It always comes together.” This year’s concert will honor Hinkle, who, during his time at Mount Healthy, transformed a non-existent band program into

Greenhills — Municipal Manager Evonne Kovach says the search for a new police chief for the village is on target and she hopes to have a new top cop by next month. James Schaffer resigned as chief in April, two months after accepting the position, because of health reasons. He replaced Thomas Doyle, who left last year after seven years at the helm of the 11-officer police department to take on a new job as head ranger for the Great Parks of Hamilton County. Kovach is working with the Greenhills Traffic and Safety Committee

and its chairman, Councilman Bud Wolterman, through the selection process. Kovach The committee will recommend two candidates and she chooses one she will recommend to council. She said the village received 26 applications for the position and then narrowed the list of candidates. Three are currently in the interview process: » Neil Ferdelman, formerly police chief in Hamilton, » Sgt. Scott Hughes, Springfield Township Police Department, and

» Sgt. Ann Ward, Greenhills Police Department. The committee conducting the search includes Kovach, Wolterman, Mayor Fred Murrell, resident Chris Visnich, councilwoman Maria Waltherr-Willard and Mariemont Police Chief Richard Hines. Murrell said the need for a police chief was unanticipated and he wants to get the position filled as soon as possible. Kovach said interviews are underway and she is hopeful that she will have a recommendation for council soon. “We would love to have someone in place in July,” she said. “I think that is realistic.”

Few recent band alumni participate in the event – a disconcerting prospect for Harness, a band booster. Still, she tries to convince students each year to take part in the concert. “I haven’t seen a big change in participation,” she said, “but I haven’t given up on it.” Harness hopes to attract 300 people to this year’s concert, which is free. The event concludes with an ice cream social, which costs $3. “It’s just a good time for everyone to come together,” she said. “We enjoy seeing each other every year, and it’s a pretty special time for all of us.”

one of the top high school bands in the state. The event will begin with a video that explains how Hinkle got into music and how it became a passion of his. “He hasn’t changed a bit; people who haven’t seen him since high school would still recognize him,” Harness said. “Music is everything to him.” Hinkle, as is customary, will honor Mount Healthy band alumni who have died in the last year. This year, he’ll read 43 names aloud. “The event really hasn’t changed much,” Hinkle said. “We’ve just gotten older.”

Everyone feels welcome at Greek festival By Monica Boylson mboylson@communitypress.com

Finneytown — Holy Trinity-St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church parish administrator Eugene Nicholas said he hopes people leave the Panegyri Greek Festival full and happy. “We try to make sure everyone feels welcome and can experience the Greek culture,” he said. The 39th annual festival is 5 to 11 p.m. Friday, June 28; 3 to 11 p.m. Saturday, June 29; and1to 8 p.m. Sunday, June 30, at the church, 7000 Winton Road. Free parking is available at St. Xavier High School, 600 W. North Bend Road, with shuttle service to the festival. There will be traditional Greek food and desserts, dancing, entertainment and cooking demonstrations. There will also be tours of the church, the church bookstore will be open and there will be some market vendors selling clothing and jewelry. Carnival rides are also part of the festival. “Our biggest focus is the food,” Nicholas said, adding that last year they sold 12,000 gyros. A gyro is a pita bread sandwich made with a blend of beef and lamb meat, tomatoes, onions and is topped with tzatziki sauce, a blend of Greek yogurt and cucumbers. He said they will also offer Greek express dinners with a choice of one of five entrees including chicken and lamb served with rice pilaf, green beans, Greek salad and bread.

he said. “There will be a la carte items like the Greek pizza and we have loukoumathes, which are Greek doughnuts that people like to buy right before they leave.” General chairman for the festival Frank Cook said that once you walk through the front gate, you have a good time. “People put down a hundred bucks to eat, drink and be Greek for an hour,” he said. He said that he likes to see people enjoy the festival. “It’s great to see the smiles on people’s faces and knowing that we’re bringing joy to the community,” he said. While Nicholas said he may be partial, he said he thinks you can’t have a better time in Cincinnati. “I think we put on the best festival in town,” he said. Admission to the festival is $2 and children ages 12 and younger are free. Greek dancers will perform every hour during the festival.

Lewis ‘humbled’ as alumnus of the year

By Jennie Key jkey@communitypress.com

Mt. Healthy — Mount Healthy alumnus and school board member Steve Harness says 1989 graduate Tommie “TJ” Lewis Jr. is representative of everything that is good about the school district. And that is way is was chosen as the 2013 Mount Healthy High Alumni Association’s Alumnus of the Year. While a student at Mount Healthy High School, Lewis, 42, was a decorated three-sport athlete, honor roll student and homecoming king. He received numerous athletic, academic and community achievement awards including the 1989 Bob Kline Award. Lewis is a passionate supporter of programs that promote personal, academic and athletic success. “TJ is always quick to note that he is a former student-athlete and product of the Mount Healthy school district,” said Julie

Robinson, also a graduate. Robinson said Lewis began his career as an architecLewis tural engineer before deciding to be a builder of people and businesses rather than a builder of bricks and mortar. A tireless proponent of higher education and youth development, he serves on the board of directors for a number of agencies and organizations, including Camp Joy, the Ohio Foundation of Independent Colleges, 4C for Children, Peaslee Neighborhood Center in the Over-the-Rhine area, the Dan Beard Council of Boy Scouts of America, and the University of Cincinnati’s ADVANCE Program. Harness said Lewis has pursued education and career accomplishments but never lost sight of the value of involvement in furthering the development of youth in the community. “My family still lives in Mount Healthy in the house I grew up in,” Lewis said. “I feel like I am paying the district back and paying forward at the same time.” Lewis said teachers,

principals, coaches and other adults encouraged him to stretch and when he saw their advice bearing fruit in his life, he realized they had been telling him the truth about what was possible and he wants to inspire students now in the same way. Lewis has held leadership positions with Convergys Corp. and INROADS, as well as serving as faculty at Fisk University in Nashville at the age of 24. He is a graduate of Tennessee State University, where he earned a Bachelor’s of Science Degree in Africana studies. He has also earned professional certifications in Egyptology and African Deep Thought from the University of Chicago; international and cross-cultural management from the University of Houston; emotional intelligence and diversity from UCLA; and coaching across cultures executive coaching from the Advanced International Executive Coaching Seminar in Rome, Italy. “Tommie has remained involved with the Mount Healthy district,” Harness said. “He still comes back to be part of the Gentleman’s Club, and he encourages young people to continue their education. And he has modeled that for them. He gives back to

the Mount Healthy community and a lot of other areas as well. Yes, this is well-deserved.” Lewis has a reputation as an accomplished human resources professional, executive and career development coach, and diversity consultant. He is the president and CEO of Make It Plain Consulting, a human resources management company specializing in talent management, leadership development, and global diversity solutions. He has traveled throughout India, Europe, the Middle East and the Americas consulting with people and companies on workforce and workplace issues. Lewis was recognized

COLLEGE CORNER Dean’s list

STEM conference offers career insights

Interactive sessions, a college and career fair, keynote speakers, and a mentor lunch all helped introduce over 80 Winton Woods freshmen, sophomores and juniors to careers in science, technology, engineering and math at the district’s second annual Man-toMan STEM Conference. “These careers are not going to go away,” said Jim Smith, interim superintendent, and it was a sentiment echoed throughout the morning. In Myrtis Smith’s session on exploring engineering, she showed students how a bachelor’s degree in engineering could lead to a career in law, medicine, education, business and technology. Smith, who is Winton Woods High School’s Project Lead the Way engineering teacher, also gave the students a set of Legos and 10 minutes to build a car. When time was up, she asked, “What should I have told you?” Engineers, she explained, would need to know what the car would

be used for. In this case it was racing. Five more minutes were given as everyone redesigned their cars, tested them on a racing ramp, and argued about what to add or subtract from their vehicle. At the same time the students were in their sessions—including game design, a STEM career introduction by WCET, and an online questionnaire—invited parents were attending their own session about helping their son to be college and careerready. “We want parents to have an idea what their son needs to do to be prepared for college and a STEM-related career,” said Dr. Terri Socol, executive director of teaching and learning for Winton Woods City Schools, who organized the conference. At the mentor lunch, students were able to interact with men who were engineers, pharmacists, business owners, architects, police officers, firefighters, doctors and teachers.

Library offers plenty of e-options Do you own a Kindle, Nook, iPad, Android tablet, iPhone, Android smartphone, MP3 player, or even just a laptop or PC? If so, then reading this column could save you more than $1,000 a year! For example: If you buy just one new e-book each week this year, it could cost you more than $500, though you can check out 20 per library card every day of the year through the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County. If you add in 260 legally downloaded MP3 songs – the number you can get per library card every year – that would cost you roughly $250. Add in an Audible.com membership for downloadable audiobooks, which are available for free

from the library, and you’re up to $950. Throw in a few glossy magazines for your iPad or Android tablet, Ned and you’ve Heeger-Brehm broken the COMMUNITY PRESS $1,000 mark.

a week, and MP3 songs and magazine issues are yours to keep. There are now more than 21,000 e-books and more than 7,000 audiobooks in the library’s primary e-book and e-audiobook service, OverDrive. OverDrive downloading is easy; just install and authorize the OverDrive media console app, then log in using your library card number and PIN.

How to make cleaning with children fun School’s out for summer! This typically makes half of the household happy and half of the household harried. Why should mom and dad be left with all the chores? Enlisting your kids to help with the house cleaning not only takes some of the pressure off, it can help build some important life skills while giving you fun family time. Houses don’t clean Derek themselves At Christian COMMUNITY PRESS least that’s what my mothGUEST COLUMNIST er always told me when I was a boy. Kids of all ages can have a role in keeping the house ship shape. » Cleaning kits/buckets. Personalize some inexpensive buckets for your kids. Fill them with the cleaning essentials. Make a project out of decorating the buckets with paint pens, stickers, etc., prior to cleaning day. » Today’s technology. As with most things, if you make it fun or make it a game, your kids will respond. There’s even an app for that. In ChoreMon-

ster, parents assign chores to their kids, along with a set number of points to be earned when a specific chore is completed. Children can redeem earned points for fun rewards such as ice cream, a new video game or a trip to the zoo. Kids must manage their chores and keep track of their own points, all the while earning interactive monsters they play with and learn from. » Turn up the tunes! Let everyone in the family choose a song for your cleaning soundtrack. Music will inspire you and will help keep your workers motivated. My mom used to always play the Fleetwood Mac “Rumors” album when we cleaned and to this day when I hear it I want to start cleaning something. » Keep the clock. Keep the cleaning to a manageable amount of time. Set a goal to see how much you can get done as a family – in one hour. A few words of caution: » Assign age appropriate tasks. » Be mindful of chemicals around young children. Make sure your kids are old enough to understand how to properly spray and clean with any

cleaning solutions. As a rule, window cleaner is generally safest and bathroom cleaners contain the harshest chemicals. » Make your own all-purpose cleaner with a bottle of water and a few drops of dish soap. It’s basically the same formula that bubbles are made from and is safe for counters and wall touch ups. Try not to get it on the floor – slippery when wet! » Dusting seems like the easiest chore for little ones, but dusting around breakables could lead to disaster. Choose simple bookshelves or toy shelves. » Check your expectations. The way your child cleans may not be perfect, or as you would do it, but be open and use positive reinforcement to foster a willingness to clean again! Finally, a little reward never hurt. Cap off a great day of work with a family night out. Here’s to a summer of fun – and a relatively clean house in which to rest and relax. Derek Christian is founder and owner of My Maid Service, the region’s largest, independent professional cleaning company, which is based in Blue Ash.

Good vacations start with good planning It is finally here summer vacation, the opportunity to recharge your batteries, reconnect with family and have some fun. Months of planning are about to pay off for a trip that will hopefully keep you refreshed throughout the season. Regardless of what you have planned this summer, it is important for you to remember Ian Mitchell COMMUNITY PRESS to pay attention to the GUEST COLUMNIST not-so-fun aspects of your summer events. Here are some tips to help keep troubles at bay before, during and after your time away: Before leaving town: • Thoroughly research your destination and associated costs. Know the price ranges of the restaurants you want to visit and the activities you want to pursue, and understand the terms of your rental or hotel booking. • Set a budget based on your research. Put aside money each week toward your goal and start early. • Look for deals. Several organizations offer membership discounts, and you may find additional savings through your credit card, the area’s visitors bureau, attraction websites and travel sites. • Try to be flexible on dates. It can make a big difference in the cost of lodging and flights. • Notify trusted neighbors that you’ll be away and when you expect to return. Let them know if you will have a house sitter. • Place a hold on your mail and newspaper deliveries or ask a friend or neighbor to pick them up. You also may want to have your yard maintained. A pile of newspapers and an overgrown yard can signal an empty house. • Simulate a “lived-in” appearance by using timers for turn lights and a radio or

TV during expected hours. • Notify your credit card providers of your travel plans: When you’re leaving, where you’re going and when you’ll return. This helps companies identify fraudulent charges if your card is used in an area you’re not visiting. • Do not share your travel plans on social networking sites. During your trip: • Make lunch, rather than dinner, your big meal out. Prices are lower and often the menu is the same. • Take advantage of smartphone apps that can help find the best prices for gas and other savings. • Use mobile banking apps to monitor accounts and track spending so you don’t have surprises when statements arrive. Ice cream, souvenirs and drink tabs add up fast. • Never carry large amounts of cash; use traveler’s checks or credit cards. • Take only your driver’s license/official ID and two credit cards: One to carry, another to lock in a safe in case your wallet is stolen. • Don’t access financial data or personal information on public computers or public Wi-Fi networks. Be cautious when accessing a hotel room Internet connection. • If you use an ATM, choose one inside a bank. Well-lit lobbies with security cameras, bank employees and customers provide more security for you and for the ATM, meaning it is less likely to be a tampering target. When you return: • Let friends and family know you’re home. • Get your mail. Open it and electronic mail promptly to address bills or other urgent matters. • Continue to monitor your accounts. Check statements to make sure nothing is out of place. If you notice something unusual or fraudulent, contact your provider immediately.

Ian Mitchell is vice president and director of enterprise fraud risk management at Fifth Third Bank.

Ham, basil pinwheels make colorful appetizer I’m not saying I have the world’s best memory, but when it comes to food, I have a photographic memory. Like the other day when I was going through one of my vintage cookbooks and came across a recipe for cinnamon pinwheels. After readRita ing the Heikenfeld recipe, I had a feelRITA’S KITCHEN ing these are the “radio rolls” that were available in bakeries here. It’s not the one that uses puff pastry. This recipe calls for a yeasted dough that you form into coils and flatten out before baking. I think it’s the same roll recipe that many of you wanted to make at home. It’s too long to print here, but I’ll post it on my blog.

Ham and basil pinwheels

If you’re growing basil, it won’t be long before flowers start to form. Pinch those off (yes, they’re edible) and while you’re at it, cut off enough leaves to make these pinwheels. This is a do-ahead appetizer that keeps appetites at bay until the main dish is served.

6 10-inch flour tortillas 8 oz. cream cheese, softened 3 ⁄4 cup sun-dried tomatoes, minced 12 thin slices ham Fresh basil, enough to cover tortillas

Mix cream cheese and dried tomatoes. Spread each tortilla with cream cheese mixture. Put ham slices on top. Lay basil on top. Roll up tightly and stick toothpicks in 4-5 evenly spaced spots. Cover and refrigerate for several hours. Slice and serve.

Marinated honey mustard grilled veggie skewers

The honey mustard lends a nice color. 4 long skewers

Whisk together: 3 tablespoons white balsamic vinegar 3 tablespoons honey mustard 3 tablespoons olive oil 3 ⁄4 teaspoon crushed dried rosemary or about 2 teaspoons fresh, minced 3 ⁄4 teaspoon onion powder Salt and pepper

Have ready: 1 red bell pepper, cut into 11⁄2-inch pieces1 yellow and green zucchini, about 8 oz. each, cut into 1⁄2-inch thick slices

If using wooden skewers, soak in water 30 minutes ahead of time. Put veggies in plastic bag and pour marinade over. Let sit at room temperature 30 minutes or more. Thread onto skewers, reserving marinade. Grill, turning occasionally and brushing with marinade until tender, about 15 minutes.

Savory pork roast

How many times have I told you one of the most fun things about writing this column is the recipes you share? Marianne D. shared her favorite recipe for pork roast with me and said: “The ranch dressing mix is the secret ingredient and it’s diabetic friendly, too. Sometimes I’ll toss in a little minced fresh parsley.” 2-3 tablespoons olive oil 1 tablespoon ranch salad dressing mix 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard 1 clove garlic, minced Salt and pepper to taste 21⁄2 pound boneless pork loin roast 1 cup chicken broth or water

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix oil, dressing, mustard, garlic, salt and pepper. Rub all over roast. Put roast in baking pan and pour broth around roast. Bake about an hour, or until thermometer reads 150 degrees. Remove from oven, tent with foil and

let sit 10 minutes. Serves 8. Diabetic exchanges: 4 lean meat, 1/2 fat.

Tips from readers’ kitchens

Opera cream cake. So many of you told me you loved the cake. Suzanne M. said she used a 9-inch by 13-inch pan, baked it at 375 degrees for a few extra minutes. So if you don’t have a jellyroll pan that the original recipe calls for, a 9-inch by 13inch works well.

Can you help?

Together, these hormones trigger the formation and release of glucose in the body. As a result, diabetics may find they have high fasting blood sugars when they measure their glucose first thing in the morning. Because these patients appear to have uncontrolled diabetes, there’s a strong likelihood that their physicians will increase their dosage of insulin, which can bring on new health concerns. “Diabetic patients with undiagnosed sleep apnea who treat ‘uncontrolled diabetes’ with an increased insulin dose might be having more intense therapy than they need. They could actually veer into hypoglycemia, or low blood sugar, by overcompensating for a morning measure impacted by sleep apnea,” says Subramanian. “We need to screen these patients for sleep apnea because by treating the apnea, we can dramatically improve pa-

“I saw salad burnet at a garden store and wondered what it’s used for.” Salad burnet is a hardy perennial herb that tastes like cucumber. It’s a pretty little plant with lacy green leaves and a pinkish, cone-shaped flower. I like to use it in salads and to make herbal vinegars. Borage is another cucumber-flavored herb.

Diabetes could cause sleep apnea

If you are suffering from uncontrolled diabetes, you might want to find out if you also have sleep apnea before upping your insulin, says Mercy Health Physician Shyamsunder Subramanian, MD, a pulmonary, critical care and sleep specialist and medical director of Mercy Health – Western Hills Sleep Center. In a research review published in the “World Journal of Diabetes,” Subramanian found that many people with diabetes – up to 40 percent – also have sleep apnea but they just don’t know it. Sleep apnea causes the windpipe to narrow significantly or even close during sleep. Sufferers can experience up to 300 narrowing or closing events during each rest period. In response to the choking sensation, the body releases the stress hormones adrenaline and cortisone, which startle the sleeper into breathing.

tients’ glucose control. They may require less insulin or go from insulin injections to pills or even cut down on the number of pills they take to control their diabetes.” If you have uncontrolled diabetes together with symptoms of sleep apnea, which include daytime fatigue, waking up tired, disturbed sleep, loud snoring or unexplained weight gain, ask your physician if a sleep study is right for you. Mercy Health’s boardcertified physicians and credentialed technologists can diagnose and treat sleep disorders, including sleep apnea, insomnia, restless leg, narcolepsy, sleepwalking and more.

JFS ‘We Give A...’ campaign a finalist in marketing competition At Jewish Family Service, “WE GIVE A...” A catchy and edgy marketing campaign by Jewish Family Service earned the agency and its director of marketing Sherry Kaplan recognition by Cincinnati American Marketing Association as a finalist in its Marketer of the Year competition, non-profit category. The Cincinnati Zoo took home the nonprofit category award for its social media campaign marketing highlighting the birth of a baby giraffe. The Marketer of the Year awards, which were presented May 2 at a dinner reception, recognizes

a company, a marketing team within a company or an individual who has demonstrated overall excellence in marketing. Kaplan, a Blue Ash resident, oversaw the execution of a fully integrated campaign that was centered on four short animated videos and the slogan “WE GIVE A…” It incorporated a full spectrum of marketing channels over a six-month period: a microsite, direct mail postcards, social media, email, traditional media ads, and movie theatre trailers. The “WE GIVE A...” message was, and continues to be, in-

cluded in other agency marketing such as radio ads and holiday postcard greetings. She worked in partnership with a marketing committee initiated by the JFS Board. The committee, chaired by Max Yamson (Oakley), included Mark Miller (Forest Park), Daniel Kerbel, Dennis Mitman (Symmes Township), Suzy Marcus Goldberg, Melanie Blumental, Ben Rosenfield, Beth Schwartz (Kenwood) and Catherine Stahl (Northside). “Let’s be sure that ‘We Give A…’ huge round of applause and bow of appreciation to our marketing director Sherry Kaplan and the marketing committee for daring to ‘push the envelope’ with an edgy slogan, aggressively using technology and strategically using traditional channels to move the campaign, abandoning the usual and typical, and capturing our community’s attention,” Jewish Family Service

Executive Director Beth Schwartz said. Mark Miller’s company US Digital Partners donated talent and time to create the wegivea.com website. 779 Video created the animated videos at a nonprofit rate. Both allowed the campaign to stay within budget. “All of Sherry’s coworkers can attest to the time, effort, and scrutiny that she put forth in order to get the execution of the videos, direct mail, and messaging exactly the way she and the committee wanted it. Sherry wrote the preliminary storyboards for the videos, the copy for the voiceovers, and spent hours in the editing process making certain that we were telling our JFS story effectively in less than a minute. The committee edited further, provided outside expert perspective, and strategized how to implement the campaign that Sherry smoothly carried out,” Schwartz said. The “WE GIVE A…” marketing was developed in response to a challenge last year by JFS Board President Michael Schwartz to create an edgy awareness campaign. Schwartz noted that “JFS is an incredible organization that is truly the “doing” agency in our community. Too many people don’t know about all the wonderful services that JFS provides. We hoped that this campaign would entice people to take notice.”

Check your home warranty service contract Home warranty service contracts are a $3 billion a year business, but you need to know the drawbacks as well as the advantages. For instance, you can expect many warranty companies to do the Howard least Ain expensive HEY HOWARD! repair possible. Home warranties have become fairly standard with real estate sales. But while it can give a buyer peace of mind, I’ve seen time and again where there’s been a problem when a claim was filed. Terri Miller said her daughter ran into a claim problem when the air conditioning went out in her Reading home. “The air conditioning fan went out. We turned the unit on and it didn’t turn at all,” Miller said. Miller’s daughter bought a home warranty when buying the house last year after it had been foreclosed upon. She called the warranty company and a repairman was sent out. “He immediately looked at the unit and told me it was a fan motor. ‘We’re in luck, I have it on my truck. I’ll go change it out,’ he said,” Miller said. Unfortunately, the repairman couldn’t separate the fan from the motor so he removed both – with the electricity still on. “He left the unit completely wide open. He left the electric panel wide open. When I asked him if that was safe he

told me, ‘Yes.’ I found out later from my husband it was not safe,” Miller said. The serviceman didn’t return for two days. Then, Miller said, “When he rewired it, rather than turning the motor itself another quarter inch so he could run the electric through the conduit in there, which would be the appropriate thing to do, he chose to put the wires above the unit and he has them ziptied.” Miller sent a picture of the job to the home warranty company and it agreed to send out a different company to properly wire the air conditioner. “The air conditioner does work. It is cooling the house. The problem is the wiring, the way they installed the wiring. It’s not safe,” Miller said. A big thing to remember with home warranty companies is you can’t pick the repair companies they send to your home. Sometimes you’ll get a good, well qualified repairman, other times you won’t. Check the warranty to see exactly what it does and does not cover. One woman told me although the warranty company gave her a new air conditioner, she ended up paying the serviceman $1,500 for labor. These warranties generally cost about $400 a year and have a $100 deductible for each repair.

Grant helps HealthCare Connection expand services The Health Foundation of Greater Cincinnati has awarded $75,000 to The HealthCare Connection (THCC) to expand primary care services for behavioral health patients at Greater Cincinnati Behavioral Health Services (GCB). The HealthCare Connection was one of 20 organizations receiving grants through the second phase of the Health Foundation’s Launching Solutions: Seizing New Opportunities in Health initiative. The HealthCare Connection includes Mount Healthy Family Practice, Forest Park Health Center and Lincoln Heights Health Center, as well as four primary care locations co-located with behavioral health practices (Greater Cincinnati Behavioral Health Services, Talbert House and Central Community Mental Health Board), and a school-based health center at Princeton High School. “We are confident the primary care capacity expansion grant will help support our mission to improve the health of our community,” says Pat O’Connor, vice president and chief operating officer for the Health Foundation. “We are proud to support The HealthCare Connection as they serve more behavioral health clients in need of services.” Mental health issues, including depression, are a significant public health issue in Ohio and across the nation. In the past year, one in five adults in the United States experienced mental illness. “Nationally, people who have both a chronic physical illness and a chronic mental illness have a lifespan 25 years shorter than the average person,” says Dolores Lindsay, CEO of The

HealthCare Connection. “For Ohioans, it’s 32 years shorter.” THCC has provided primary care medical services for Greater Cincinnati Behavioral Health Services patients since 2007. “Our quality services have been very complementary in offering our clients access to primary and behavioral health care services in the same convenient location,” says Jeff O’Neil, program officer, Greater Cincinnati Behavioral Health Services. “Many clients who were very ill and not addressing their physical health needs at all have achieved good health outcomes and have now moved into a more preventive level of care.” The number of clients served has grown from 565 to 850 by the end of 2012. “We believe that we will need to double our capacity to 1,700 with the implementation of the Ohio Medicaid Health Homes program in Hamilton County for persons with serious and persistent mental illness,” says Lindsay. The Health Foundation Launching Solutions Grant will enable THCC to hire a parttime nurse practitioner, which will increase capacity and allow for more flexibility in setting operating hours. The grant also will allow THCC to purchase equipment for a third exam room. “This support allows us to grow to meet the increasing needs of our patients,” says Lindsay. Adds O’Neil, “The collaboration of care opportunities for each of our staffs and clients have steadily increased and the timing is critical as GCB approaches becoming an Ohio Health Home Provider in the fall of 2013.”

Achievers program helps youth

Every Saturday from 10 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. throughout the school year, you’ll find teens involved in the YMCA of Greater Cincinnati’s Black and Latino Achievers program gathered at Cincinnati State Technical and Community College for a series of college and career preparedness programs. Local business and community leaders help the program engage middle through high school teens in hands-on learning; emphasizing college readiness, career exploration, and leadership development. “The Saturday sessions are a great opportu-

nity to bring in positive adult role models to offer advice and guidance to the teens about their futures,” said Darlene Murphy, who oversees the YMCA Black and Latino Achievers program. “Judson Pickard is a great example of what hard work and dedication can accomplish.” As a franchise owner and operator of 10 local McDonald’s restaurants across the Greater Cincinnati area, Pickard has spent more than 30 years continuing his commitment to teach and encourage the success of future generations. On a recent Saturday morning, he worked with the Y’s next

generation of leaders at Cincinnati State. Pickard also works with the Urban League of Greater Cincinnati, assisting with its Job Readiness program and is active with the Boy Scouts of America, mentoring young men and supporting programs through sponsorships. The YMCA of Greater Cincinnati will hold its 35th annual Salute Gala fundraiser on Nov. 1. For more information about the YMCA of Greater Cincinnati Black and Latino Achievers program or to volunteer, call 513-246-3239 or email dmur phy@cincinnatiymca.org.

Mad Mike’s open in White Oak By Jennie Key jkey@communitypress.com

Colerain Twp. — Mad Mike’s Burgers and Fries has made its way across the river and landed in White Oak. The new restaurant at 6900 Cheviot Road, at Blue Rock Road in the old Chili Company building, opened April 28. Owner Demetris Hiropoulos owns this Mad Mike’s with his father, George. There are three other locations, in Newport and Florence, Ky. All family owned. They like it that way. Demetris, who has worked in the food industry for 17 years, says his dad has been in the restaurant business for 40 years. His cousin Mike Gelastopoulos came up with the original idea. “Everyone in my family loves to cook,” Gelastopoulos said. “We have a passion for it.” The family has run diners and full-service restaurants and pizza parlors in the past. “We decided to focus on one thing and make it really good,” Demetris said. He went to culinary school in Europe, getting an associate’s degree in culinary arts, then came home to put his knowledge to work. The new place is a work in progress. TVs are still to be hung in the dining area, and the parking lot needs some work. And Demetris says he’s in the process of getting a liquor license to sell draft and bottled beer. “It takes time,” he said. “We’re getting there.” The restaurant is open from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m, but eventually, he plans to stay open late – until 3 a.m. – in hopes of getting business from the Knotty Pine bar across the street. “We’ll see how it goes,” he said. He’s looking forward to being part of the community and will have a discount program with area schools. He wants to add school memorabilia to the walls.

Mad Mike’s signature sandwich, the Goliath Burger, lives up to its name. It substitutes grilled cheese sandwiches for buns and surrounds the two quarter-pound patties with American cheese, bacon, grilled onions, lettuce and tomato and BBQ sauce. JENNIE KEY/THE COMMUNITY PRESS

MAKING OF GOLIATH See Mike’s Burger’s chef create a Goliath. Go to Cininnati.com/coleraintownship.

The menu is focused: Burgers and hot dogs. The family worked with Mike to come up with the names for menu items. You can get black angus beef burgers of all sorts from a classic cheeseburger with the traditional lettuce, tomato, pickle and onion to the more exotic. Want your sandwich Greek style? Try the Pride of Zeus, which features gyro meat, feta cheese, tzaziki (a cucumber sauce), lettuce, onion. The Mad Cali features avocado mayonnaise, lettuce, avocado slices, tomato, onion, pepper jack, and tzaziki. Or maybe the Hawaii Five-O, with caramelized crushed pineapple, beer battered onion strings, American cheese and bacon. If you’re hungry, the Goliath may be for you. It uses two grilled cheese sandwiches for the bun, and offers bacon, grilled onions, cheese, lettuce, tomato, two quarter-pound beef patties and tangy barbeque sauce. “It’s popular, and it’s fun to eat,” Demetris said.

“I don’t know that everyone finishes it.” Chicken burgers – fresh-ground white chicken patties, smash-seared –are the newest addition to the menu including the What the Cluck burger, which features cilantro mayo, avocado slices, baton, Swiss cheese, lettuce and tomato. Demetris says what makes his family’s burger joint better is the variety of toppings they offer and the freshness of the meat they serve. “We don’t freeze it and it’s pattied up daily,” he said. “We cut our fries fresh daily as well.” You can get a lot of things at Mad Mike’s, but not a rare burger. “We serve all our burgers well done,” he said. “But nice and juicy. Well done, but done well.” He’s pleased with the new location. “We heard good things about the community, and the people we’ve met so far have been very nice. He says the family does not have national franchise aspirations. “We don’t want to get too big,” Demetris said. “We want to make sure the product stays good and we like having contact with the customers, meeting them and talking with them. We like putting smiles on people’s faces.”

Got burgers? The crew at Mike’s Burgers, from left, Akis Hiropoulos, Demetris Hiropoulos and Daby Gueye, have the answer: yes. The new restaurant opened April 29 and business has been brisk. JENNIE KEY/THE COMMUNITY PRESS

We have some people in mind and we’re hoping to make an arrest within the week.” Mount Healthy Mayor Joe Roetting said city officials will take the opportunity with the chief to look at ways to help eliminate crime at the park. He said they will discuss added security at the next big city event, the July 3

Fireworks in the Park. “One recommendation may be to do away with the fireworks display,” he said. “For now though we want to gather all the facts before we make any decisions.” In the meantime, the chief said he has no doubt they will find the suspect. “We’re confident that we’re going to find the shooter,” he said.
