Winton Woods choir wins gold

Ensemble sings out in championship By Monica Boylson

One of the first medals handed out at the World Choir Games went to singers who are your neighbors. The Winton Woods High School Varsity Ensemble won a gold medal in the championship division of the World Choir Games July 8. The ensemble, which consistes of 48 students in grades 10 through 12, competed against 13 choirs from eight countries and placed fifth overall. The championship division included individ-

uals ages 12 through 24. “I was really surprised,” soprano Adrianna Ivory, 18, said. The Springfield Township resident said she and her friends attended many of the choir competitions downtown as spectators. “Everybody was so good. We knew we were good on a community level but we didn’t think we could win against such good talent,” she said. Ensemble director Dave Bell explained that in order to qualify for the championship division, choirs had to send in an audio recording of their work and either competed in an international competition successfully or have a recommendation from a national board representative. In Winton Wood’s case, the

servatory of Music’s division head of ensembles and conducting, Earl Rivers. The group was required to

perform four songs. Additionally, one song was to be from another culture, one from their own culture and one piece had to be from a living composer. “I don’t think we expected to be on the top. It’s incredible considering we were competing against college-level voices,” Bell said. The gold-status qualifies the group to compete at the championship level for the next five years. “I was really happy to take part in the games. This was a once in a lifetime chance and we took advantage of it,” Ivory said. “It was like the Olympics of voice.”

Council to vote on aggregation

Forest Park City Council is reopening the question of electric and natural gas aggregation and

plans to decide whether bring the issue back to voters in November at the regular council meeting July 16. Voters rejected the programs in 2010. Aggregation programs allow a group of customers to join together to form a large group that buys energy for its members. A large buying group may be able to get a better price for the group members than a resident could get alone. Ohio law allows communities such as townships and cities to form aggregation buying groups. Officials negotiate and contract with an outside supplier for all of the customer-members in the group. The programs would be opt-out, which means most residents are included, but may choose to opt out of the program if they choose to. Aggregations can be formed to buy natural gas, electricity or both. Council meets at 8 p.m. Monday, July 16, in council chambers at 1201 W. Kemper Road.

The concert will take place rain or shine. Attendance generally ranges from 2,000 to 5,000 for the concert.

Anderson says while other communities may have free community concerts by the CSO, Forest Park is unique in the length of its commitment to bring the cultural event to the community. “It’s our 23rd annual concert,” he said. “None of those other communities can say that.” Mary Beth DeSalvo,

Ameritas second vice president of human resources, said Union Central has been proud to be part of the event for those 23 years. About 100 of the firm’s employees volunteer to set up before the concert, organize the parking and work out the details as the event draws close. It takes months to plan. The only thing the volunteers don’t do is control the weather. “I wish,” she said. “We are hoping for a break after all the hot weather we have seen in recent weeks.” De Salvo said Concert on the Green holds a special place in the community. “It’s important because events make the community pull together,” she said. “It’s such a great opportunity and everyone enjoys it. This year, the program has something for everyone. A little Broadway, Verdi, Springsteen … even John Fogerty. People come from the community and all around it to enjoy a little dinner, good company and great music. “It’s a great event.”

He said he wanted to be a part of the solution. “The new retaining wall will make a huge impact in preserving the field and ultimately save money in field dirt replacement,” Springfield Township’s communications coordinator Kimberlee Flamm said. The boys’ projects will be judged to determine whether or not they become an Eagle Scout.

Day retires from Winton Woods schools Worked 33 years in a ‘mission’

Larry Day, left, was honored for his work with Project Success, Winton Woods City Schools alternative education program, at the April board of education meeting. He is shown with board President Tim Cleary. THANKS

Over the last 33 years with Winton Woods City Schools, Larry Day has worked for six superintendents, four principals, four treasurers, and 16 board of education members. His job titles have included principal, teacher, drama coach, theater technical director, director of accountability and testing, coordinator of Project Success, summer school teacher, summer school director, basketball announcer, and due process hearing officer. Soon he’ll be adding another title to the list – retiree. Day is retiring after nine years in his most recent role for the district as the director of Project Success, the alternative education program he developed. He was honored for that work by the board of education at its April meeting. “He truly saves lives,” said Superintendent Camille Nasbe. “This is not a job to Larry. This is a mission.” In an open letter to the board, Day talked about the sacrifices his own family made. “Over those 33 years I often missed first steps, pulling teeth or skinned knees because I was at school serving as mentor, surrogate father, counselor or friend to literally 10,000s of our communi-


ty’s young men/women,” said Day, who serves as a church deacon. “I have asked the boys since how they felt about me leaving them all those times. To a kid they responded, ‘Dad, you had to go. They needed you.’” Day thanked the board for allowing him to lead the flagship school of the district, to spend 21 years creating dreams on the stage of Forest Park/Winton Woods High School, to bring High Schools That Work to Winton Woods High School and lead the reform it represented, and to sit alone in hospital rooms, holding young hands and offering prayers as the machines were turned off for the last time. “Every day since walking into my first classroom, I have started each day with a prayer – asking God to give me the strength to be what I needed to be for the kids that

would surround me that day – and I have ended each day with a prayer – asking God to watch over them until I returned the next morning. I will continue to keep this place and its people in my prayers.”

Auditor’s office sends back excess fees

“Whenever someone wants to give us money, that makes me happy. “

By Jennie Key

Hamilton County Auditor Dusty Rhodes is returning $1.65 million in fees he didn’t spend on last year’s property reappraisals to the school districts, townships and taxpayer-supported socialservice agencies in the county. The refund is about $16.5 million. The reappraisal happens every six years. County auditors in each of Ohio’s 88 counties gets a percent each year of property taxes collected in their county to pay for the property appraisal process. In Hamilton County, that percentage added up to $54.5 million over the last six years. Rhodes spent only two-thirds of it, so the rest gets sent back, he said. He would prefer to return the money to the tax payers, but state law won’t allow that. But it does allow Rhodes to return it to local governments, and that’s what he does. “The state threw local governments a curve ball when the local government funds were cut,” he said. “We are fortunate that we are able to give some money back. I believe it’s just the right thing to do.”




Mt. Healthy superintendent

He’s been consistent in that belief. In 2006, Rhodes gave back $14 million; in 2000, he returned $4.2 million to local governments, districts and agencies. This year, 90 entities get money back and each gets a different amount depending on the amount of property taxes they collect. Mount Healthy City School District Superintendent Lori Handler said the district will likely bank the refund. The district received $186,284.92. “We just cut $4 million,” she said. “Whenever someone wants to give us money, that makes me happy. We will discuss it with the board.” Forest Park is getting back $70,174.43 and City Manager Ray Hodges says the money will be divided between the fire department and the general fund. “About $10,000 of that will be earmarked for tree replacement and maintenance,” he said. “The past couple of years have seen the loss of a tremendous number of trees because of drought. We want to keep the forest in Forest Park.”

Springfield Township is receiving 164,571.27 back from the county. Township Administrator Mike Hinnekamp said, “It’s great news but we don’t have the money earmarked. It will go into the general fund.” Winton Woods City School District is receiving $313,596.50. Treasurer Randy Seymour said, “It’s a onetime revenue, so we are going to spend it on a onetime expense. The money will go toward our capital improvements.” North College Hill City School District will see a check for $64,975.40 coming into its offices. “Our balance is still very tenuous,” said Superintendent Garry Gellert. “It’s very much appreciated but we are saving it.” Finneytown City Schools is scheduled to receive $152,970.55. An official could not be reached for comment. The city of Cincinnati will receive back $962,832.18.

Steam roll into All-Star break in 2nd

By Tom Skeen

PRICE HILL — The Cincinnati Steam enter the All-Star break winning five of their last seven games and sitting just a half game back of the first-place Lima Locos. “We are excited about the way we’re playing,” coach Billy O’Conner said. “The games we stubbed our toes in have been doubleheaders. Those games have a different feel to them than single games. You are on the field all day and other factors come into play. Other than that, when we take the field be know who the best team is.” One of the top guys for the Steam has been Roger Bacon graduate Josh Ungerbuehler, who is second on the team with a .373 average. After helping Mari-

etta College to its second consecutive Division III National Championship, Ungerbuehler leads the Steam with seven doubles and ranks second in RBI, walks and stolen bases. “(Josh) has been great,” O’Conner said. “He ended his spring season on fire and picked right up for us. He has been a difference maker at the top of the lineup. He has quality at-bats every time, always hits, walks, moves runners and handles the bat well.” Another guy who continues to hit is former Elder Panther Selby Chidemo. Since June 21, Chidemo has raised his batting average from .292 to .328. Infielder Matt Williams is in his second season with the Steam and has made big strides since last season, according to O’Conner. The former CHCA standout

and current Cincinnati Bearcat is hitting .321 and leading the Steam with 22 RBI. On the mound, Turpin graduate and Michigan State left-hander Ryan Martin is on fire. In 14.1 innings pitched, he has struck out 22 batters and walked just one while posting a 2.51 ERA and a 2-1 record. With 13 games to go, including three against first-place Lima, who the Steam have already defeated once this season, they are in a great position to make a run for the Great Lakes Summer Collegiate League title. “I think we have plenty of talent to win,” the Steam coach said. “We have to sustain our hard work and energy and come to play every single day. We have competitive guys on this team and that means a lot to a coach. .”

Former Roger Bacon and current Marietta College standout Josh Ungerbuehler looks on as the Grand Lake Mariners are introduced before their June 21 contest. Ungerbuehler is hitting .373 - second on the team - and leads the Steam with seven doubles on the season. TOM SKEEN/THE COMMUNITY PRESS

Christon should help Xavier Former Warrior puts up numbers for Deveroes league

By Scott Springer

ROSELAWN — A year removed from Winton Woods, where he led the Fort Ancient Valley Conference in scoring at 21 points per game in 2011, Semaj Christon is back in town. He’s made his presence known with several outstanding games in the Deveroes Summer League at Woodward High School, including a 34-point performance June 24. The 6’2” guard spent a year in New Hampshire playing for 33-1 Brewster Academy along with Withrow’s Aaron Thomas. Christon made first-team all-league and is heading to Xavier University; Thomas was second team and is scheduled to go to Florida State. After a year of prep school, Christon is enjoying the competition at the legendary local summer run. “It’s pretty good,” he said. “I like it. You’ve got to get tough to play with these guys; they’re grown men. I like it a lot.” Christon has excited Musketeer fans in attendance with a

variety of moves to the basket and can hit the occasional trey. In his 34-point game against a team featuring Shaq Thomas from the University of Cincinnati, he drained an off-balance NBA-length three from the corner, while falling out of bounds and knocking the shot clock over to send the game to overtime. The key to such a circus shot? “Just confidence,” Christon said. “I have confidence shoot-

ing threes. I felt like it was a good shot and it went in.” With Xavier losing Tu Holloway, they could use another playmaker. Among coach Chris Mack’s newer options, Christon appears to be a viable one. “I think so,” Christon said when asked if he could contribute right away. “I feel confident I can come in and play.” For now, Christon is on the Goodies BBQ team playing Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays at Woodward through mid-July. He’s surrounded by other former prep stars in Moeller’s Charlie Byers and former Winton Woods teammate Dennis Thomas. “I’ve always played with him,” Christon said of Thomas. “He’s right there where I live at. It’s fun for me, I love playing with him. I know all of the guys on my (Deveroes) team from AAU.” Winton Woods coaches will tell you that Christon bloomed as a Warrior. Initially small, he didn’t even play varsity until midway through his sophomore year when he was a skinny 6footer. He left Winton Woods at

6’2” and 165 and has since added close to 20 pounds to help when guarded by bigger guys. “A lot of people think you’re small and they want to bully you,” Christon said. “If you’re tough, the games will be good. I like it. Your mind’s got to be tough, your body, all of that. Being tough will help you win games too.” That’s at least the hope of fans at the Cintas Center, where Christon played in high school tournament games. Already sporting the Musketeer gray shorts with the blue X, Christon has been well worth the $3 donation asked for at the door of Woodward. For games that you’ve missed, a You Tube search already has recent highlights. He’s already been matched up with UC’s Shaq Thomas and that rivalry could extend over the next four years at U.S. Bank Arena, Cintas Center or Fifth Third Arena, wherever the Crosstown Shootout ultimately lands. (It’s downtown this December.) The two could match up officially Dec. 19.

Under coach Greg Johnson, 32 members of the Bond Hill Flyers Track Club earned the right to compete at this year’s AAU Junior Olympic Games in Houston, Texas, July 30 to Aug. 6. At the AAU National Qualifier at Wittenberg, two 4x100 meter relay teams captured first place : Primary Girls (ages 5 to 8) and Intermediate Boys (ages 15 to 16). Eleven of the Flyers’ 18 long jumpers qualified. Two more qualified for high jump, while two qualified for the pentathlon and one for the triple jump. Both Flyer hurdlers qualified and the remaining Flyers earned spots in open sprints, hurdles, shot put, discus, and the javelin. Those competiting include: » Paige Anderson, Roselawn » Payton Anderson, Roselawn » Payton Hughes, Loveland » Arielle Hudson, Bond Hill » Jordan Little, Delhi » Karlye Favors, Springdale » Ariagn McCloud, College Hill » Ferronte Bartlett, College Hill » Tyonna Springs, Avondale » Camiyah James, North Avondale » Anijah Triggs, Mount Airy » Kylee Matthews, Fairfield » Nykara Brown, Fairfield » Nya Williams, Evanston » Tai’Lynn Jones, College Hill » Angel Prince, Westwood » Arissa Freeman, Mount Auburn » Joshua Freeman, Mount Auburn » Briana Houser, College Hill » Niamani Mayes, Bond Hill » Taylor Edwards, Bond Hill » Akesa M-Ariba, Bond Hill » Barry Bates, Bond Hill » Courtney Woodward, College Hill » Brandon Jones, Silverton » Ramsey Belcher, Pleasant Ridge » William Edwards, Bond Hill » Nylan Mosley, Northside » Kessashun Arthur, Forest Park » Amani Russell, Mount Airy » Jair Knox, Madisonville » Quaid Arnold, Elmwood

Dry periods may cause foundation cracks We are in a very dry and hot summer. The dry weather causes some foundations to begin to settle. Foundation, exterior wall cracks and interior cracks start to become evident. Houses supported on expansive clay soils are likely to settle differentially. Not every neighborhood has this type of soil. Large trees will extract large amounts of moisture from the soil, accentuating the problem. Settlement cracks develop because different portions of the foundation settle at different rates. Some of the older homes have underground plumbing and downspout piping that has a limited life. The older piping may collapse, crack or have tree root intrusion. If these pipes begin to leak along the foundation, seasonal foundation may be

more likely due to excess water content in the soil, which weakens the soil. There are several signs that homes Michael experience this Montgomery COMMUNITY PRESS seasonal movement. FoundaGUEST COLUMNIST tion and brick cracks widen after extended periods of dry weather. Interior wall and ceiling cracks also widen during the dry times. If the cracks are repaired when the crack is wider, the patch will buckle as the moisture level in the soil is restored. There are several methods of repair. Some homeowners live with the changing cracks that may not cause additional long

term problems. When the weather starts to get dry, watering along the foundation may prevent this settlement and control movement. Also, homeowners with sump pumps can unplug the pump and the sump fills with water above the footing drain pipe level. The water will reverse flow through the piping along the foundation to restore the moisture level in the soil. The homeowner has to remember to plug the pump back in when the rains begin. There are several other types of minor foundation repairs that may be very appropriate and less costly. Some economical methods may include structural repair of the cracks or steel tie rods. The more extensive types of repairs are classified as underpinning piers. The various types of underpinning piers are


several bids from contractors. These bids will compare the same scope of work and will have record of the repairs that have been completed, thereby protecting the homeowner from unnecessary repairs. Also, another level of protection would be a building permit acquired by the contractor. Remember that a bid from a contractor is not a design, just the salesman’s description of the scope of the work they say they will perform. An evaluation by a structural engineer will protect you from paying for the wrong repair, which may be a very expensive experience.

concrete piers, helical steel piers and push piers. The push piers, if installed correctly, should stabilize only the portion of foundation that has had the system installed to. The portion of the foundation not supported by these piers may develop cracks, requiring additional foundation repairs. Helical and concrete piers may support the repaired portion of the foundation on similar soils supporting the remainder of the house. Foundation movement can be caused by several causes. Cracks are not always due to differential settlement. If a home is experiencing foundation movement, we suggest contacting a structural engineer for an evaluation. If the foundation needs repair, the engineer can provide a design plan that will then allow home owners to get

As you drive down Glenway Avenue, you might just notice a small sign at the corner of Ferguson Place advertising the date and time of the next Steam game. It is a simple sign, not very flashy; and if you don’t happen to be looking that way, you might just miss it. And to miss a Cincinnati Steam game, well that might just be a shame. The CincinK.L. nati Steam is Willdermood not just anothCOMMUNITY PRESS er summer GUEST COLUMNIST collegiate baseball team; it is symbol of a great legacy known as Cincinnati baseball. It is a team that runs onto the field of Western Hills High, a school where not one or two, but four Major League baseball managers walked the halls as students. It is a team that proves baseball is still America’s pastime. It is a team that brings pride to the people of the west side. A Steam game is a unique blend of nostalgia mixed with the current trends of whacky in-game promotions and entertainment. While one can sit in the bleachers, eat a hot dog, and bask in the purity of a game played by those who still play with heart, another can buy a few split-the-pot tickets, participate in one of MC Smitty’s (A.K.A. Jeff Smith) wild promotions, and catch a ball game on the side. Whatever the reason, there is an air of delight that runs through the crowd at each and every Steam game played at Western Hills High. A delight that continues to feed the community, bringing them back season after season. The Cincinnati Steam is one of 11 teams playing in the Great Lakes Summer Collegiate League and is sanctioned by the National Collegiate Athletic Association.

JULY 18, 2012 • HILLTOP PRESS • B3

Each year, my neighbor, Sandy Shelton, gifts me with one of her mother’s heirloom monkey face flowers. The leaves are a dark purplish green and the flowers do resemble a monkey face (with a bit of imagination) and they are a gorgeous shade of light purple. (Check out my blog for a photo). This plant is precious to her and her siblings since they represent a family’s history of passing down those things that have meaning. That’s why I treasure my mom’s mint and send each child off with a sprig to plant on their own, Rita much like Heikenfeld mom did. RITA’S KITCHEN And I can’t make jelly or jam without using my mother-in-law Clara’s preserving spoon. She inherited it from her mom, and it’s a simple design made of cast metal with a long handle, and an angled bottom, just perfect for stirring jelly from the sides and bottom of the pan. Food is like that, too. Seems like the recipes we enjoy most are those with a history, like the ones I’m sharing today.

Greyhound Tavern’s Pasta Gabriel

Mary Ann Wainscott, owner with her husband Butch, of this historic Northern Kentucky restaurant, shared this heirloom recipe. She told me “People absolutely love it.” I’ve given my approximate equivalents next to ingredients. Made fresh per serving. 5 oz. angel hair pasta, cooked 1 oz. (2 tablespoons) olive oil 1 tablespoon butter

Betty Crocker’s impossible pumpkin pie features a crust that doesn’t require rolling. THANKS

The Salvation Army has set a goal of $75,000 for this year’s Christmas in July Campaign. The campaign is taking place throughout the month of July at more than 40 area Kroger stores using The Salvation Army’s iconic red kettles and bell-ringers. Funds raised through the Christmas in July campaign are used to support the critical programs offered by The Salvation Army. Every day, The Salvation Army is active in Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky, making a positive impact in the lives of those served. Emergency Assistance is a critical area of need, providing food, rent, utilities, transportation and other important forms of support to local families. Youth


3 oz. mushrooms, sliced 1 teaspoon minced garlic 2 oz. green onions, about ¼ cup, chopped 2 oz. tomatoes (1 small tomato), diced Salt and pepper to taste Chicken or shrimp (optional)

Put olive oil, butter and mushrooms in a sauté pan. Sauté these with a little salt to get them started. Then add garlic, green onions and, last, the tomatoes so they don’t overcook. When the tomatoes are warm, add pasta. Served with blackened chicken or shrimp. Chicken (boneless skinless, 6 oz.) is broiled and blackened and cut in strips. Shrimp (5 oz.) is broiled in a little butter and salt and pepper and small amount of white wine. All is tossed several times so flavors are mixed.

Impossible pumpkin pie

Betty Crocker’s “impossible” pies never lose their appeal, since they’re easy and tasty with no pie crust to roll I’ve had a couple requests for these. One was for the impossible quiche pie. I don’t have that recipe but do have the other, for a

pumpkin pie. 1 cup canned pumpkin (not pumpkin pie mix) ½ cup original Bisquick mix ½ cup sugar 1 cup evaporated milk 1 tablespoon butter, softened 1½ to 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice 1 teaspoon vanilla 2 large eggs

Preheat oven to 350 and spray 9-inch pie plate. Blend all ingredients. Bake 35-40 minutes or until knife inserted in center comes out clean. Refrigerate until chilled, a few hours. Serve with whipped cream. Serves 6.

Beef pot roast with garlic and ginger

This is one of those recipes that has stood the test of time. I continue to get requests for it, even in the summer. Yummy over mashed potatoes or noodles. For Carol Ann, who said this is her husband’s favorite pot roast. 1 chuck, brisket or other inexpensive roast, approximately 3 lbs. Oil for browning ¼ cup cup hot water ¾ teaspoon powdered ginger or 1 tablespoon

minced fresh ginger 2-3 teaspoons minced garlic ¼ cup soy sauce or more to taste 2 large onions, sliced 2 teaspoons cornstarch mixed with ¼ cup cold water

Brown beef in a small amount of oil. Cover with water, ginger, garlic, soy sauce and onion. Cover and simmer about 2-3 hours, until tender, adding water as needed, about 1 cup. Or roast, covered, in 225 degree oven. Remove meat. Add cornstarch mixture to sauce and stir until thick. (May need to add a bit more cornstarch dissolved in a small amount of cold water). Serves 6.

Can you help?

Don’t rely on verbal warranties If you buy a used car, is the dealer responsible if something goes wrong with it after just a few days? A surprising number of people believe the dealer is responsible even if the car was sold “As Is,” meaning without a warranty. Now some judges are ruling against the dealers as well. Cason Hensley, of Walton, bought a 2001 Honda Odyssey from a used car dealer in Cleves. “We test drove the vehicle. It sounded OK and we bought it. The very next

day my fiancée goes to take it to work and the van was just spinning through its Howard gears. She Ain tells me, ‘I HEY HOWARD! can’t drive it,’” Hensley said. Hensley says he realized the van was purchased “As Is,” but says, “When they sell you a car there they say you have a 30-day unwritten warranty. It says ‘As Is’ on the

paperwork but then they tell you, ‘Hey, if anything is wrong with it we stand behind our autos. We’ll give you 30-days.’” Hensley had paid Mike Weinle at Michael J’s Auto Sales $2,800 for the vehicle and took it back to him. Hensley says Weinle checked over the van. “He says, ‘Oh, it was just low on transmission fluid.’” But Hensley says while driving the van back to Walton he noticed the same problem occurred. This time, Hensley says, although he contacted the dealer again, nothing more was done. So he returned the van to dealership, then filed suit in small claims court seeking his money back. Weinle defended his position to the magistrate by pointing to the receipt showing the van was sold “As Is” without a warranty. But the magistrate ruled in favor of Hensley and ordered the money returned to him. Why did the judge rule for Hensley? “Well, the judge flat out told Weinle, ‘You took the car back to repair it, didn’t you? Did you touch that automobile? Yes? Well, then you took it back

to fix it, so there was an issue then,’” Hensley said. Weinle appealed, but a judge upheld the magistrate’s ruling and now he’s appealed again. “I’m just trying to be a nice guy,” Weinle said. However, he says this is not the first time magistrates have ruled against him in similar situations where he was just trying help out. The magistrates are ruling that whenever Weinle tries to fix the vehicle it negates his “As Is” warranty. I’ve heard of several used car dealers offering these verbal warranties, but believe they may tend to give consumers a false sense of security. So despite the court rulings, don’t rely on any warranty that is not in writing. Instead, get your own ASE certified mechanic to check out a vehicle before you buy it. It may cost you about $100 for the inspection, but its well worth it . Howard Ain answers consumer complaints weekdays on WKRC-TV Local 12.
