Greenhills is getting ready to host the July 18-19 Northern Suburban Swim League championships. Megan Kenny, manager of the village pool, said the eight-team competition will bring thousands of people to Greenhills for the twoday event. “We’ll probably have 2,000 people here throughout the two days,” she said. Along with the Greenhills Gators, teams competing will be Evendale, Wyoming, Springdale, St. Bernard, Reading, Sharonville and Norwood. The 750 swim team members range in age from 3-18 and will compete in both relay team and individual categories. Kenny, 24, a Gator coach and former team member, said the village last hosted the championship in 2003. “It’s hosted on a rotating basis and it’s a huge job to organize the event,” she said. “We have wonderful parent support, but can use all the volunteer help we can get.” Kenny’s sister, Katelin, will be both helping and competing. It will be the 18-year-old’s last meet since rules limit team participation after high school graduation. Village Mayor Fred Murrell said the swim meet will be an opportunity to show off a bit and is urging residents to spruce up to make a good impression. “The swim meet will bring so many people to Greenhills who may be visiting for the first time,” Murrell said at a recent council meeting. “We want to show off what we

have and, hopefully, folks will want to come back.” Kenny said volunteers have been helping get the ready, planting flowers around the pool facility. “We’re proud of our pool,” she said. “We’re tucked away back here and people might not even know the pool is here. The meet will allow us to show off our green areas and golf course and all that Greenhills has to offer.” With the demise of other community pools, the Greenhills facility is attracting more families.

“We’re seeing more people every summer and I think we’re the only pool in the immediate area,” she said. She said the pool still has family and individual passes available. The meet also gives the Gator team its opportunity to raise funds with the Gator Grill concession stand. Kenny’s father, Rob, said he’ll be helping as will a roster of volunteers. Admission to the meet is $2

and it is open to the public with plenty of parking available in the shopping center, the old Johnny’s Toys and the adjacent Community Building. The Community Building will be where folks will retreat if the weather doesn’t cooperate during the championships. Rain won’t stop the competition, but thunder and lightning will. For more information about the pool or the swim meet, call the village pool at 825-0288.

Springfield Township trustees are weighing their options on renewing township participation in the federal Community Development block grant program.

Given the decision by their counterparts in Green Township to opt out of the program in hopes of staving off public housing units, Springfield Township trustees said June 14 opting out may not be an option. “Our research is that it there is no connection between receiving

come out of our general operating budget.” Hinnenkamp said numbers indicate the township has between 10 and 20 public housing units. “Those units have caused us few problems in terms of police activity or property maintenance issues,” he said. “The properties that take vouchers, which is a completely different program, have presented difficulties.”

Trustee Gwen McFarlin said the township has until June 23 to decide whether to request the federal funding for another three years. “We will continue to review the facts we gather and will likely have a special meeting to act on the request,” she said.

North Elementary vies for $20,000 prize By Jennie Key jkey@communitypress.com

Mount Healthy North Elementary School is vying for a $20,000 prize and officials say they need your help to win. It is the only southwest Ohio school entered in the 2011 Lots2Give contest, sponsored by Big Lots. To enter the contest, schools submitted a 90-second video and a brief essay on why their school could use some additional financial support. One $20,000 grand prize, four $5,000 first prizes and 30 $2,000 second prizes will be awarded. The focus of North’s video is while the school can use the cash, it is rich – in people. Big Lots encourages the public to cast a ballot for their favorites and help support education at the same time. North Elementary Principal Jenni Moody says if her school wins the money, it will be spent on additional technology for students. She said her teachers are already seeing the benefits of the new technology they received when the new school building opened in

FOREST PARK – Winton Woods City Schools continue working to start its global academy, now seeking local businesses for partnerships. The district is looking to start a business advisory council for its global academy, which is a more involved path of studies for students. The academy begins next year with the freshman class and will be open to up to 125 students. The program will add a grade level in each year until the 20142015 school year. The new program will include four years of math,

science, English, Chinese or Spanish, social studies and attendance at an annual global seminar. There will also be an additional class period each day and 26 credits will be required for graduation instead of 22. Winton Woods High School Principal Terri Holden said the business advisory council would assist the academy by providing guest speakers, mentors, tutors, project ideas and financial support. In return, students enrolled in the global academy will provide service hours to participating businesses. “We want it to be a mutually-beneficial partnership,” said Superintendent

the fall. “We’d like to get tablets for the students to use with the white boards in the classrooms,” she said. Go to www.biglots.com/ lots2give/vote/index#spotlight-iframe and cast your three votes for North each day. You can narrow the search on the site by state and the school is listed as North Elementary School. Voting ends at 11:59 p.m. Monday, July 4. Winners will be announced Aug. 13. “The Lots2Give program makes a positive impact on schools in need across the country,” said CEO Steve Fishman in a statement. “We invite America to join us in selecting the winners of our Lots2Give video contest and promoting an important cause.” Along with the Lots2Give video contest, participating schools will be the recipients of an in-store donation program. Now through July 4, customers can help selected schools by donating $1 or $5 at participating Big Lots stores and 100 percent of donations will go to the participating schools.

Get involved

To learn more about the business advisory council for the academy of global studies at Winton Woods High School, contact Mimi Khayo, parent/community outreach coordinator for Winton Woods City Schools, at khayo.mimi@ wintonwoods.org. Camille Nasbe. Nasbe said the district recently met with community business leaders about partnership possibilities, and said several businesses plan to lend their support. There are currently 83 students signed up for the global academy. The district has been slowly building toward the global academy for several years with its emphasis on foreign languages and more hands-on learning.

Township OKs zone change for business expansion hfallon@communitypress.com

Springfield Township trustees approved a zone change June 14 that could mean a business expansion and jobs. Parkway Products Inc. requested the zone change for several parcels totaling 10 acres that had been the New Burlington Elementary School site on Hamilton Avenue near Springdale Road. With its existing plant at

10293 Hamilton Ave., company president said the site is ideal for future expansion. “We’ve been here for four years and it’s a wonderful community,” said Joseph Klunk, Parkway president. “We hope to bring jobs and increase the tax base in the township.” The company is buying the property from the Mount Healthy City School District for $200,000, according to John Pennell, executive director of administrative

Mt. Healthy sets police chief exam By Heidi Fallon hfallon@communitypress.com

Without a police chief since last month, Mount Healthy has scheduled the required written test and interviews for July 6 and 7. Safety/Service Bill Kocher said the delay in testing has been due to scheduling. Three police sergeants are eligible to take the Civil Service test which will be given by the independent firm of Daniel T. Clancy and Associates. The firm also will conduct the assessment interviews along with the written test. Along with the chief’s test, the firm will give the

written test and assessments for officers eligible for the sergeant’s slot, which will be open once one of the three sergeants is promoted to chief. Kocher said he expects the test results will be available within a week of the test completion. The chief’s job has been vacant since Al Schaefer retired at the end of May. Kocher said he and the three sergeants are meeting weekly to address any issues the department may have. For more about your community, visit www. cincinnati. com/mounthealthy.

Trustee Joe Honerlaw said he and his fellow trustees are pleased to see “economic development along the Hamilton Avenue business area.” “It will mean jobs and it’s a positive sign for the township that this international company is looking to expand here,” Honerlaw said. Klunk said Parkway manufactures plastic and component parts for aerospace and industry uses. The

company has six plants in the United States and three in Mexico, he said. “I am pleased with the township’s approval,” Klunk said. “We have no immediate plans, but we are looking to expand since our current location is landlocked.

Grandmother stirs ‘Chicken Soup for the Soul’ By Monica Boylson mboylson@communitypress.com

Her tote is brimming with goodies. Coloring books, crayons, Play-Doh, a copy of “Charlotte’s Web,” a first-aid kit and Band-Aids seem to jump out of the bag inviting grandchildren to grab and enjoy. Pamela Durham, 56, Mount Healthy, is a modern-day Mary Poppins. This grandmother seems to have exactly what you need and has the cure for everything. Durham is following in her own grandmother’s footsteps. Her experiences with her grandmother and her grandchildren inspired her to write, “The Magic Purse,” an essay featured in “Chicken Soup for the Soul: Grandmothers.” The story depicts Durham’s experiences as a child with her grandmother and her magic purse. “The story reflects the relationship with my paternal grandmother and

my relationship with my grandchildren,” Durham said. Durham writes: “It’s an understatement that Grandma’s purse held more than the average number of items. One day she removed from it a box of crayons, a coloring book and stickers, I could restrain my curiosity no longer. ‘Grandma, is your purse magic?’ I asked. She chuckled replying, ‘Well yes, I suppose it is!’ And just like that, my long-held suspicions have been confirmed.” Durham who writes under the pen name P.S. Durham, hasn’t been writing all her life but has had success already. Durham attended Wilmington College and Otterbein University and her skilled writing was evident. “I was a late bloomer,” Durham said, “I had a teacher tell me, ‘If you keep this up, you should consider making this a career.’ I didn’t know I was a good writer.” Durham took her writing to the next level and began submitting sto-

ries to magazines, “Chicken Soup for the Soul” and “Get Published” through the Cincinnati Enquirer. She had eight stories published throughout the Tristate and was inspired to write a children’s book in 2007. Durham published “Cliffie’s Life Lessons,” a book that teaches comical life lessons and is modeled after her two grandsons, Connor and Josh. Durham’s journey hasn’t been easy. She was prompted to write about her experience with her grandmother when her own health was in jeopardy – she was diagnosed with bone marrow cancer. She was told that she only had six months to live unless she received a bone marrow transplant. In July 2008, Durham received a transplant and although she’s had other health problems her spirit never fades. “I am a very blessed person and I want to fully express my appreciation to God,” Durham said.

Roger Bacon’s Kayes a model of determination By Tony Meale tmeale@communitypress.com

A lot of high school students play varsity sports, but almost none has had to overcome more adversity than 2011 Roger Bacon graduate Zach Kayes. Kayes grew up in a Bulgarian orphanage, where his sister, Becky Boerner, said he was deprived of a typical childhood. He was adopted by Joe and N a n c y Kayes at the age of 11 and moved to the United States – despite knowing no English and having had minimal schooling. “It was a huge challenge,” Kayes said. “A lot of people don’t realize how difficult learning a whole new language and culture can be.”

Slowly but surely, Kayes mastered the language – after learning the American alphabet, that is. He studied yearround in school, seeking extra work during the summer to improve his education. Math help? He’d get it. Writing help? He’d get it. He forced himself to learn a new vocabulary word every day. “He’s a very resilient young man,” Nancy said. “I think he saw an opportunity that he wanted to take advantage of. He’s someone who just wants to learn.” T h r o u g h sheer effort, Kayes, who played soccer for the Spartans, maintained a 3.4 GPA. “He really committed to improving himself and becoming something,” Boerner said. “He hasn’t taken his education for granted.”

Roger Bacon High School 2011 graduate Zach Kayes played soccer for the Spartans. Kayes’ unyielding drive is likely one reason why he was named Hilltop Press Sportsman of the Year, as voted by fans; 265,320 votes were cast for all 26 newspapers. As a reward, Kayes will receive a pair of field box seats thanks to the Cincinnati Reds later this season. “ “We’re really happy he has this opportunity because he would never draw attention to himself,” Nancy said. “We’re delighted that other people care enough to support him like this.” Said Kayes, “This is a really big achievement for me. I’ve never won anything before. This is incredible.” While Kayes’ life has changed dramatically since his adoption, one thing has remained constant – his love for soccer. “He’s outside dribbling a

He scored three goals and had one assist as a senior. “I love international soccer and the culture that comes with it,” he said, “It’s so worldwide.” Kayes, who will attend the College of Mount St. Joseph, plans to play soccer for the Lions and major in nursing, which can be attributed in large part to the nature of his family. Kayes is the 18th of 19

We just value family.” Joe and Nancy have adopted children from several countries, including India, China and Korea. Several of the adopted children have disabilities, including cerebral palsy and spina bifida. Kayes’ siblings have influenced his outlook on humanity, and he has experience working with

McAuley’s Pfeifer a team-first talent By Tony Meale

Scouting Report

tmeale@communitypress.com

It’s the state meet, the last leg of the 4x800 relay, and Danielle Pfeifer takes the baton in sixth place. Now, for the average state runner – heck, for even a great state runner – the idea of contending for a title is out of the question. Wishful thinking at best, crazy at worst. But for Pfeifer, a McAuley High School senior-to-be, the rules of crazy don’t apply. “I know Danielle’s heart, and I know her competitive spirit,” said her father, Tim. “When she took that baton, I knew she had a shot.” Pfeifer was focused. Keep moving up, she thought. Just get past the next girl. And that’s what she did – four times, in fact, until it was her and Mason’s Monica Lakes, going stride for stride for the state title. “When I got to that last 110, I don’t think I even thought of anything,” Pfeifer said. “I was just running.” Pfeifer’s teammates – Jordyn Thiery, Kate Olding and Emily York – implored her all the way through the finish line. The times flashed; McAuley 9:13.12, Mason 9:13.09. The Mohawks were state runners-up – by three-hundredths of a second. Pfeifer was heartbroken. “She felt in some way she had let everyone down when in fact she was one

But heartbroken? Hardly. “Team is very, very important to me,” Pfeifer said. “(The 4x8) was something special. I felt responsible for the other three girls. It was more difficult for me to handle.” Said Russo, “Danielle is one of those very rare people who brings the team aspect to track and field.” For that reason – and a host of others – Pfeifer has been named Hilltop Press

As a reward, Pfeifer will receive a pair of field box seats thanks to the Cincinnati Reds game later this season. “She’s a super kid,” Tim said. “To see her succeed – and not just succeed, but work hard at it – is outstanding.” There’s no disputing the work Pfeifer has put in. If

you do wish to dispute it, Pfeifer’s performance at the league meet this spring nullifies any argument you have. “In the 35 or 36 years I’ve been involved in track and field,” Russo said, “I’ve never seen a person who was willing to step up and run the mile, the 400 and the 800.” Why is this rare, you ask? “The 400/800 is the toughest double in track and field,” Russo explained. “Only one event separates the two – the 300 hurdles. There’s no recovery time. And I was asking her to run the mile in front of all that,

We feel like we’re really blessed to have him.” Thus, since coming to America, Kayes has learned English, graduated from high school and will become a college athlete and pursue a profession in the medical field. “The road has been long,” Boerner said, “but Zach has persevered.”

with only the 4x100 relay in between the mile and the 400.” Not only did Pfeifer accept the challenge, but she also made good on it, w i n n i n g league titles in all three events and leading the Mohawks to a first-place finish in the GGCL-Scarlet. “I knew it would benefit the team if it turned out the way everybody wanted,” Pfeifer said. “It was tough, but I just thought I would try it. I had nothing to lose.” Pfeifer’s list of athletic accomplishments and scholastic activities are vast (see sidebar), and she’s done

I live by a lot of quotes and mottos, but for running, that’s what I always think to myself. it all while maintaining a 4.0 GPA – even with a class schedule replete with advanced placement courses. “She wants to succeed,” Tim said. “She’s a very focused, very driven young lady.” Pfeifer, who aspires to be a neonatal nurse, attributed her development to Russo, who believes Pfeifer has a legitimate chance of becoming an Olympian. “Danielle thrives on winning and being the very best she can be,” Russo said. “She’s an extremely coachable kid. When I first got her, from the start of the gun, she used to run as hard as she could for as long as she could. Now, she races. She’s out there calculating what she needs to do to win. She’s very cerebral.” Pfeifer, explaining her desire for running, said, “There’s just something about it – the atmosphere, the fans, the whole thing. When I step on the track, I’m in a whole different world.”

Winton Woods athletes honored for spring efforts PROVIDED

Warrior hiking

Winton Woods High School wrestling coach Chris Willertz, three of his senior wrestlers, Dammon Johnson, left, Michael Johnson and Willertz’ son Alexander and wrestler Moges Tsegay enjoy a senior trip to Beaver Creek in the Daniel Boone National Forest in Kentucky over the April 1 weekend. “The purpose of the senior trip is one last initiation before they graduate,” Willertz said. “Roughing it is the primary condition for the trip to be a success. We camped and slept under the stars Friday and Saturday nights in 40 degree weather.” The group, along with guide Jim Bissel, hiked all day, blazed their own trail for six hours, and covered about nine miles. “We purified our water which was taken from the Beaver Creek, ate very limited food, and, probably the harshest condition, forced the kids to give up their cell phones and i-Pods,” Willertz said. “The boys had a chance to talk around the campfire after they cut the wood themselves, and I talked about the value of being a man of service. I know some revelations ensued.”

Marvin and Charlene Kollstedt, Fairfield, brought dinner and their beloved pet to the Greenhills Concert on the Commons June 8. Cassie seems more interested in her owner’s picnic supper than the music.

Keeping cool the old-fashioned way, Dick and Lucine Erb, Springfield Township, said they are regulars at the summer Concert on the Commons series in Greenhills.

Nikki Singson and her daughter, Alex, 3, didn’t have far to walk for the June 8 Greenhills Concert on the Commons. Singson lives just around the corner and said when she can’t make it to one of the summer concerts, she can usually hear the music from her porch.

Shirley and Doug Dial, Springfield Township, said the occasional breeze made the temperature seem a bit more bearable as they enjoy the Concert on the Commons. The couple said they try to come to as many of the concerts in Greenhills as they can.

Heat doesn’t deter Greenhills concert By Heidi Fallon hfallon@communitypress.com

Temperatures in the 90s didn’t deter folks from enjoying the second in the summer series of Concerts on the Commons in Greenhills. Jim Miller has been organizing the series for the past 14 years, but the June 8 concert was a special one for him. “I’ve announced a lot of birthdays and other special days for people when I introduce the band,” Miller said, “but tonight I got to wish my wife happy anniversary.” Miller and his wife, Ellie, were celebrating their 37th wedding anniversary. Mary Carol and John Meinken, North College Hill, said they picked the concert as their weekly “date night.”

Ellie and Jim Miller share an anniversary kiss after Jim completed announcing the band for the Concert on the Commons. He has been organizing the summer series for the past 14 years and the couple used the June 8 concert to celebrate their 37th wedding anniversary. Others attending the concert featuring the band Cold Smoke, came, they said, just to enjoy the music and an evening out. “We come as often as we can,” said Shirley Dial, Springfield Township.

“We love music and they always have such good bands here.” Miller said he never considered canceling the concert due to the heat. “We’ve had it hotter than this and it’s difficult to try

Todd Hughes, Finneytown, brought plenty of ice cold water to keep cool during the June 8 Concert on the Commons in Greenhills. and reschedule the bands,” he said. The next Wednesday night concert will be June 22 featuring the 75-piece University of Cincinnati Concert Band.

Keeping busy before the band takes the stage, Mary Carol and John Meinken, North College Hill, picked the June 8 Concert on the Commons as their Wednesday date night. Collin Schneider, 2, doesn’t appear convinced the bug spray his mom, Sara, is applying will keep him pest-free during the Concert on the Commons. The Mount Healthy duo said the heat didn’t deter them from enjoying an evening of music and fun with friends.

What happens when we keep on keeping on? This is a reprint of a Father Lou column from 2010. Father Lou is currently dealing with medical issues that prevent him from carrying out a full schedule, including penning new columns.

Somewhere in our lives we chose a road. There will always be Frost’s two paths that diverge in an unknown woods. Maybe even more than two. Once we reach a reasoned conviction of which of the two to follow – which is not always easy to accomplish – we set out on one on them. Then what? Then it’s time for perseverance, to continue steadfastly. Colloquially, it’s time to keep on keeping on. Untrustworthy negative thoughts can pester us again and again: “Should I have chosen a different path; if this is the right one shouldn’t it always be easy and enjoyable?” “Why these problems? Are they signs of a wrong

choice and a directive to go backward?” “Did I blow it?” If you wonder about your life in similar ways then you were symbolically Father Lou present years ago Guntzelman when a man for an Perspectives acame ppointment. Though he smiled politely, feelings of disappointment and sadness accompanied him. As his life story unfolded, he lamented, “ You know, Father Lou, I’ve always thought that if you worked hard at handling your life when you were younger, things would eventually get better. “To me, life is like climbing a mountain. I’ve always had the expectation that by this time in my life I would come to a kind of

plateau where the troubles of life level off. “Now I’m beginning to wonder if there will ever be a plateau. The mountain just keeps going up – and I’m getting so tired of climbing.” I had known this man for years and had a great respect for him. This was one of those times that many of us clergy wish we had a special word or prayer to salve someone’s troubled mind. I realize now that all I have is the same humanness, a listening ear, and a heart that cares. “As a mountain-climber, what are your options?” I inquired. “Well,” he mused, “I guess I could just sit and weep or wait for someone to come by and help me; or I could slide down to the bottom and stop climbing. “Then again, I could give up completely and jump off the mountain and end all the climbing and worrying.” After a long,

thoughtful pause, he sighed and suggested, “Or – I can keep on climbing.” You can tell in people’s voices and eyes when they have arrived at an answer that is really the answer, not just an expected or temporary reply. He realized that the true solution called on him for much courage – to change his negative attitude and just keep on keeping on. I asked him whether, in his solution of just keeping on, there was any benefit for him, or for any of us as we climb our mountains, to keep going even when we wonder about stopping. He paused, looked out the window thoughtfully as though he couldn’t think of any benefit. But then he did. He smiled, turned, looked me in the eye and resolutely said, “When you keep on climbing the view gets better.” Before me sat a very wise man.

A man becoming even wiser. A man gaining insight into himself and many of the perplexing paradoxes of life. Life is not a disease, not a picnic, nor a punishment. It is a path on which we travel somewhere. We look for meaning, not comfortableness. Our climb may be hard for us at times and call for every ounce of courage we have, but it rewards us by becoming more revealing as we go. Life whispers to us many of its secrets. We learn in our hearts to choose life, not quitting. It’s said: “When you climb a mountain, you feel like you’re meeting God halfway.” Father Lou Guntzelman is a Catholic priest of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati.

Know the policy before using layaway for purchases During these tough economic times we’ve seen layaway become an increasing popular method of shopping at several area stores. You can put down a little money over time until you’ve paid enough to buy the item. But, just what are your rights when you buy something on layaway? Meg Corcoran of Price Hill said she was surprised when she couldn’t immediately get her money back after she changed her mind about buying a patio set. She found the furniture in a

store last April. “ T h e guy says, ‘Well you can put it on layaway.’ I Howard Ain ‘s T ah ai td’ s, Hey Howard! g r e a t because I do like to do that.’ So, I put down $200, and then I sent him another $200 later on,” Corcoran said. All those payments were noted on the receipt she received from the store.

Corcoran had every intention of buying the items until she saw another patio set at another store a few weeks later. “I saw a nicer set for the price,” Corcoran said. “It was bigger so it fit my deck better because this was a smaller set. So I decided to go with the other set.” After buying the second set, she contacted the first store and asked to get back the $400 she had put down on layaway for the first set. Corcoran said the salesman told her, “I couldn’t have my money back until

Under Ohio’s Layaway Law, consumers wishing to cancel a layaway must do so in writing. he sold the set I ordered, sold it to somebody else. We went round and round about it and he said he put out his own money for the set.” Like many people, Corcoran said she had no idea there is an Ohio law governing layaways, and didn’t know what it was. “No, I didn’t. It wasn’t on

my receipt or anything. He says it’s posted on his cash register, but I didn’t see it.” Under Ohio’s Layaway Law, consumers wishing to cancel a layaway must do so in writing. For purchases greater than $500, as this was, if they cancel within five days they are entitled to a complete refund. After that, the store can keep up to half your money. Corcoran said she’ll now deliver a cancellation letter and get back $200. Then, when the patio set is sold, she’s told she can get back

the other $200. Kentucky has no specific layaway law, so stores have varying policies on whether or not they will allow customers to cancel and get back their money. Therefore, it’s important that you inquire about a store’s policy before deciding whether or not to sign up for layaway, no matter where you live.

Well, I finally bit the bullet and did just that: measured ingredients as they went Rita in. I’m Heikenfeld sharing that recipe Rita’s kitchen today and hope you like it as much as we do. And when I make the dressing, I’m reminded of the time that we didn’t have salad for supper. Let me explain. My mom never had a lot of mixing bowls – she used hand-hewn wooden bowls from Lebanon for the most part. But for our salad (and we did have salad almost every day to accompany the meal) she used a stainless steel bowl. It was a bit battered and it was the only bowl she had for this purpose. Mom also used a wooden pestle called an “in-duhuh” to crush her garlic with salt and pepper for the dressing. Well, one day she

Mix garlic, salt and pepper together. I use my wooden pestle (in-duh-uh) for this but a fork works well. Stir in juice and olive oil. You won’t have a lot of dressing but don’t be fooled. This is enough for 3 to 4 cups chopped lettuce, a tomato and some cucumber.

My sisters blamed me – they said I took it out into the yard to make some mud-pie creation. What I find amusing is that our yard was the size of a postage stamp so why it took over a day to locate the bowl is beyond me. Anyway, whenever I see a serving bowl that I “just have to have,” I stop and remember how few serving pieces Mom had, so I smile and leave it on the shelf.

My mom’s lemon salad dressing

This is typical for Middle Eastern dressings. It is quite lemony and is not a “fancy” salad. This is a base recipe, so go to taste on it. If you add tomatoes, cukes, onions, etc., add them to the dressing first and some of their juices will go into it, flavoring it nicely. If you add parsley, mix it in with the greens. Cheese should be sprinkled on after mixing if you want some. But don’t overdo on the cheese. A little goes a long way and you don’t want to mask the flavor of the dressing. This amount serves two but is easily increased to your needs.

Dressing: 1

⁄2 teaspoon minced garlic or equivalent clove of garlic Salt and pepper to taste 2 teaspoons lemon juice 1 tablespoon olive oil

Pat Sayer, a Western Hills reader, sent me this favorite cloned recipe. “One of my hobbies is recreating recipes from foods that we have enjoyed at restaurants. The coleslaw we ate at the Fish Hopper Restaurant in Kailua Kona, Hawaii, during our 49th anniversary is different than any coleslaw we have eaten,” she said. Sounds good to me!

Mix and chill prior to serving:

8 cups shredded mix of green cabbage, red cabbage, carrots (your choice of proportions) 1 cup golden seedless raisins 1 cup chopped papaya (Libby’s canned, welldrained, or fresh) Enough Marzetti’s cold slaw dressing to moisten well. 1 cup chopped Macadamia nuts Variation: Add orangeflavored cranberries and minced onions to taste.

Mango jicama slaw

Someone gave me this

recipe during a class I was teaching. I didn’t get his name – he just pressed the recipe in my hand and said “try it.” I haven’t tried it yet but intend to. If you do, let me know how you like it. Jicama may be unfamiliar to you, but it’s a tuberous root veggie that’s juicy and crunchy. It tastes a little bit like an apple and can be eaten raw or cooked. 1 mango, julienned 1 ⁄2 cup carrots, julienned 1 pound jicama, peeled and julienned 1 red bell pepper, seeded and julienned 1 ⁄4 cup chopped fresh cilantro 1 ⁄2 cup fresh lime juice Salt and pepper to taste Combine all ingredients and refrigerate until serving. This makes four servings.

Reader correction

According to reader Pam Anderson, the recipe for the strawberry pie needs to be altered slightly. “I think there may be 1 tablespoon too much water in the pie. It’s not setting perfectly for some. Just reduce water in cornstarch slurry from 1⁄4 cup to 3 tablespoons,” she wrote. Thanks Pam. Rita Nader Heikenfeld is an herbalist, educator and author.
