BECAUSE COMMUNITY MATTERS
Teens ‘know they can’ Will be at CABVI 5K By Monica Boylson firstname.lastname@example.org
Abby Bolling singing is like second nature. On Sunday, Aug. 12, the 18year-old will sing “The Star Spangled Banner,” before the Cincinnati Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired’s “Know You Can” 5K walk/run at Spring Grove Cemetery.
Bolling is no stranger to CABVI or performing at the race. The visually-impaired teen participates in music therapy at the center and will sound off the race for the third time. “I get a little bit of stage fright but I have a little less nerves because I’ve done it before,” Bolling said. Bolling said she was influenced by her time at CABVI as a participant and a volunteer. She will attend the University of Day-
ton in the fall to study music therapy. “It’s important for people to realize that visual impairment or blindness doesn’t hold anyone back in any particular way,” Kathy Gottschlich, CABVI director of devlopment and community relations, said. “Abby has a gorgeous voice and we love to have clients participate by singing the national anthem.” After Bolling sings her last note, she too will join the walk.
Last year, she won a trophy for completing the race in the fastest time for her age range. Also taking strides will be a client who is in Bolling’s music therapy group. Cassandra Proud, 17, Delhi Township, will lace up her sneakers and walk in the 5K with her friends. Proud is participating in CABVI’s fitness challenge and See TEENS, Page A2

Mount Healthy welcomes new police officer By Monica Boylson firstname.lastname@example.org
The Mount Healthy Police Department welcomed parttime police officer Mark Myers to the force with a swearing-in ceremony, July 17, during the Mount Healthy council meeting. Mount Healthy Police Chief Marc Waldeck said that choosing Myers for the position was an easy decision. “He’s very personable and has a great attitude. We wanted someone who was people-orient-
ed, a quick thinker and had good common sense,” Waldeck said. “Mark has a great attitude and we think he’ll be a perfect fit.” Myers, a Delhi Township resident, graduated from the Great Oaks police academy in 2008. He currently works part time in New Richmond, Ohio. “I really wanted to get into Hamilton County,” Myers said, adding that he will work part time at both police departments. “I will make Mount Healthy my priority.” Myers said he is happy to

Voters in the Finneytown Local School District will vote on a bond issue on the Nov. 6 ballot. The Finneytown board of education on July 23 approved putting a 15-year 1.98 mill levy on the ballot to raise $4.7 million for new construction, improvements, renovations and additions to school facilities and to provide furnishing, equipment for the improvements. According Horn to the annual certification from county auditor Dusty Rhodes, the yearly cost of the bond issue for an owner of a $100,000 home is $58.77. The purpose of the 15-year levy is to address capital projects. “Our big-ticket items are roofs, security and paving. Also we’ll be doing some interior retrofitting of classrooms and updating windows, seats, lighting and a new roof in the Performing Arts Center,” board President Laura Horn said. Horn said that after creating an improvement forecast, the board discussed a plan to tackle any capital projects in the next six years. After identifying the necessary upgrades and the cost, the board began work to present a bond issue to the taxpayers. David Oliverio, district treasurer, said that the $4.7 million necessary to complete the projects was beyond the realm of the current

permanent improvement levy that had an ending cash balance of $2.3 million for 2011-12. “There are projects that can’t be ignored,” Oliverio said, adding that many classrooms in the school district have trash cans placed to catch the rain leaking from the roof. “If the bond issue doesn’t pass we will have to take money from the operating levy.” The operating levy’s primary purpose is to operate the school and educational programs, the treasurer said, and with its cash flow should last three more years. “We don’t want to compromise the purpose of the operating levy,” Oliverio said. Horn said that what makes a bond issue more effective than a permanent improvement levy is the fact that school district will get all the money once the issue is passed rather than in increments over several years. “It will allow us to do everything up front,” Horn said. Oliverio added that if the bond issue passes, construction could begin within six months of receiving the funds. “Our hope is that people will see this as a benefit and that they will support the bond issue in order to help improve the buildings,” Horn said.

Smooth Jazz in the Park set for Aug. 4
As it celebrates its 11th year, Smooth Jazz in the Park continues to be a great event for the whole family. The music will be 6 to 11 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 4, at Central Park, at the corner of Winton and Kemper roads behind the Forest Park city administration building. As in past years, the free concert allows attendees to set up small tents and bring refreshments, although grills and alcohol are not welcome. “It’s a family event,” Forest Park Human Resources Director Tye Smith said. “People come early in the morning to stake out their spots and set up their tents.” The headliner for the concert is SoundFuzion. Also performing will be the Hank Stephens Experience and Blue Wisp’s Young Lions. Performing between acts will be DJ Perry Simmons who will incorporate
jazz sounds with his mixing style along with Ellis Williams, a saxophonist for three years, and a seventh grader from Winton Hills School. Smith said the event is produced by Project ArtReach. Forest Park is a sponsor for the event. The event plans a lot for kids centered around music and art. There’s a Kidz Art of Jazz tent for children age 5 to 12 to work on projects. The Project ArtReach website says the tent is designed to bring out the imaginative and creative talents of children as they are introduced to jazz music. Past projects include a paint by numbers mural and mosaic benches. Two of the benches sit outside the senior center. “It’s a real community arts project,” Smith said. “The kids have a lot of fun and their parents enjoy the festival, too.”
Forest Park voting on aggregation By Jennie Key email@example.com
Forest Park City Council is taking another look at a program that can save residents money on their gas and electric bills. Council voted unanimously to put electric and natural gas aggregation on the ballot this fall at its meeting Monday night, July 16. Voters rejected the programs in 2010. There are two ballot issues – one for natural gas aggregation, the other for electric aggregation. 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 can get on his own. Ohio law allows com-
mation circulating during the last attempt. Councilman Wyndell Burns said the city will have to do a good job of explaining the program in layman’s terms and should anticipate and answer questions residents are likely to ask. “I am totally in favor of this,” Burns said. “It’s important to make sure our our residents have a clear understanding of the program. It will directly affect possible savings on the cost of their natural gas and electric bills.” Community and Economic Development Director Chris Anderson said the city will post information about aggregation on the city’s website at www.forestpark.org. “The city administration and council were neutral the last time,” he said. “This is something we should be advocating.”

aggregation, voters must pass the ballot issues. Since 2001, a dozen communities in Hamilton County have voted on aggregation measures. Forest Park is the only community in the county in which voters said no. In that election, 54 percent of the voters voted no and 46 percent of them were in favor of the program. Some council members say they think voters were confused in 2010 and didn’t really understand the issue. Mayor Chuck Johnson said the city has two jobs now: educate voters and do some surveying to see how much people understand about aggregation and whether the community will support the ballot issues. Councilman David Lives said he believes there was a lot of misinfor-

Church CONNECTs with volunteer day Northminster Presbyterian Church in Finneytown has focused on being a missional church for a number of years. As part of its focus on mission, CONNECT was launched in 2008 as a way to get members and friends of Northminster out in the community to do a variety of service projects in a single day. The fifth annual CONNECT Day being held 8 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 11, provides an opportunity for Northminster members to get involved in mission and outreach. As a part of the communities that make up the northern hills, this is one way that Northminster takes its missional phi-
munities such as townships and cities to form aggregation buying groups. Officials neHodges gotiate and contract with an outside supplier for all of the customer-members in its group. Aggregations can be formed to buy natural gas, electricity or both. Under aggregation programs, it is only the generator of the power that is up for change. Duke Energy continues to be the local utility company responsible for providing maintenance, customer service, and billing for the transmission and distribution of the customer’s natural gas and electric power.

Tackett was described by Patty D’Arcy, director of student services, as “a valued employee who provides necessary services to the students of Winton Woods City Schools.” Tackett orginally was hired as an elementary school counselor, “but the job morphed into something bigger,” said Camille Nasbe, superintendent.

FIRST SWING AT GOLF
HIGH SCHOOL GOLFERS HIT THE LINKS
Mix of vets, youth lead teams By Mark D. Motz firstname.lastname@example.org
While tryouts won’t even begin until next week, several area high school golfers already are looking for a chance to go to Columbus for the state tournament in October.
Jack Lennon returns for his second season as Wildcats head coach with a goal of getting his team out of the Cincinnati Hills League cellar, where it finished 2011. Senior Matt Sawyer will go a long way to making that happen. He spent his freshman season at Finneytown before transferring to Mt. Healthy as a sophomore and sitting out last season when he transferred back. “I think he can be one of the top three players in the (Cincinnati Hills League),” Lennon said. “He’s really good.” Sawyer will have some help from junior David Evans in the second position, while the junior trio of Marc Deitsch, Austin Leigh and Sam Wolfrest also will add experience. “It should be a good year,” Lennon said. “We have a lot of challenges, but I’m looking forward to it.” Finneytown opens Aug. 14 in the CHL preview at Weatherwax.
Head Coach Jon Feldkamp has taken each of his previous nine Lancer squads to at least the district tournament. He’s hoping to make it an even decade in 2012. Senior Mathew Wetterich and sophomore Dan Wetterich – who in May were named Midwest players of the year in their respective 16-to-19 and 14-and-15-year-old divisions in the Golf Week Junior Tour – should go a long way to making that an achievable goal. Also back are senior Sam Johnstone and juniors Taylor Healey and Drew Gauthier. As usual, the best competition will come close to home in the Greater Catholic League South, where last all

La Salle’s Matt Wetterich was named Midwest Player of the Year after competing in the 16-to-18-year-old division on the Golf Week Junior Tour. FILE PHOTO four teams reached the district tourney and both Moeller and St. Xavier were top 10 finishers at state. “The GCL is always so good in golf, but this is a team I feel can compete,” Feldkamp said. “I hope to win it, but you never know. I think (winning the GCL) is an achievable goal, which I wouldn’t have told you in another year.”
The Mohawks under coach Ernie Petri have made the six consecutive district tournament appearances. They finished 10th in the city polls last season and appear poised for another strong season. “We’d like to keep the district trend going,” Petri said.

St. Xavier graduate and Cornell sophomore Conner Buczek has scored several goals for the U.S. U19 Lacrosse team as they play in the Federation of International Lacrosse U.S. World Championships in Turku, Finland. He scored one in the July 19 semifinal game against Iroquois Nationals, four in the July 18 game against Germany, two in the 20-1 win over England July 15, one in the July 14 game against Canada and one in the opener against Austrailia July 13.
averaged 45.1 strokes per nine. Seniors Leslie Adams (46.7) and Jena Huber (46.9) weren’t far behind Dilonardo in average. Briana Burck joins the McAuley varsity after being the top reserve player in 2011. Like their counterparts in the GCL, the Mohawks face their toughest competition close to home in the in the Girls Greater Cincinnati League, where Ursuline and St. Ursula remain among the contenders for top honors in the league, city and state.
While some area teams are hoping to head to state, fourth-year head coach K.C. McKnight has more modest goals for the Owls. “We have not won a match here in my first three years,” he said. “Recruiting people to even be on the team is probably my biggest challenge.
It’s tough.” On the plus side, McKnight does have some experienced players capable of scoring in the mid 40s who could help Mt. Healthy gain that elusive victory. Senior Bradley Williams, a four-year varsity player, is the top returnee. Classmate Zack Wylie is a second-year varsity player who should add depth and experience. Nick Wright had never picked up a golf club before last year, but improved steadily and will be a key player this season. McKnight said freshmen will round out his roster as the Owls open the season Aug. 16 against Winton Woods at the Mill Course.
The Spartans were about a .500 team last season and 10th-year coach Jerry Bockhold is hopeful his squad can improve on that record despite it being fairly inexperienced. “Our first and primary goal is to play good golf,” he said. “Sometimes that will win you championships, sometimes it won’t, but we just want to play as well as we can and improve through the season.” Senior Joey Vanarsdall takes the reins as the top player, while a pair of sophomores in Robby Heywood and Alex Brenner move up from the reserve team to the varsity. One player to watch in tryouts will be senior Zhane Broomfield, a girl possessing what Bockhold describes as “a beautiful, beautiful swing.” Bacon will compete against league favorites
McNicholas and Hamilton Badin in the formidable Greater Catholic League North.
The Bombers finished seventh in the state tournament last year and graduated 2011 GCL South player of the year Lee House. However, defending league coach of the year Alex Kepley has plenty of firepower returning for another shot at state. In fact, in the parking lot as his team loaded the van for the trip home after state he said, “We’ll keep working hard and make another run at it. That’s our goal, to win a state title.” St. X won the hypercompetitive GCL South last year and returns a pair of first team all-league selections in senior Joey Arcuri and junior Brendan Keating. Also back is senior Nick Paxson, who had the best individual finish for the Bombers at state, tying for 16th (among 72) with a two-day score of 83-75-158. St. X hosts its own invitational tournament Aug. 11 at Makatewah Country Club.
Head coach Chris Gibfried graduated only one player from his 2011 squad, Fort Ancient Valley Conference second-team selection Kevin Sherman, who was also the team MVP. Freshman Matt Berte was the 2011 most improved player for the Warriors, while classmate Alex Kuhn won the team’s sportsmanship award. Then-junior Taylor Kinley earned the Warrior award.

Do what is right
Shortly after President Obama was elected, Sen. (Mitch) McConnell and Rep. (John) Boehner, among others, declared that “We must stop Obama at all cost.” It is becoming clear that their at all cost included even if we must destroy the country in the process, so be it, but stop him. We must. This opinion is confirmed when I see how President Obama has been vilified, demagogued and insulted by the likes of people associated with the Tea Party, for example, among others. It is beyond disgusting. But what is so amazing is the silence of the majority in America. While I cannot overlook the heroic and ethical behavior and statesmanship of John McCain, his bravery puts him in the minority. If I were to honestly in one sentence say what the problem is I would be accused of racism. So I won’t say it. But the truly civil intelligent people of solid character in this nation who are willing to acknowledge it know what it is. What disturbs me the most is the danger that our nation is facing. There are those who for selfish, bias and rooted feelings of superiority are if allowed in their attempts to destroy this president are willing to
risk the total destruction of America. It is my fervent prayer that the good men and omen of this great nation are silent waiting for Nov. 6 to do what is right and correct to keep American the Beautiful.

North College Hill lost a giant of a man in the passing of Everett Hardy. A veteran and loving husband, Mr. Hardy was a stalwart in the Republican party. He was faithful in his duties as a precinct executive, and was the epitome of citizenship, especially on Election Day. Mr. Hardy could be found outside the polling locations every Election Day. He carried out his duties with passion and professionalism. I was honored to know him, and thankful that I was able to glean from his wisdom. North College Hill won’t be the same without Mr. Hardy.

Kids can be kids Think back to when you were a child. Did you love to run and play? Ride your bike? Go for a swim? Shoot hoops with your friends or practice your free throws? Maybe just read a book? Or lie on the grass looking at the sky? Did you feel it essential that your parents watch you do those things? Here at Housing Opportunities Made Equal we have been receiving increased complaints regarding discrimination against families with children at apartments and condominiums. Among those have been references to rules and regulations that apply only to children, including an especially troubling one requiring that all children under 18 be supervised by an adult at all times. Rules like this one are a direct violation of the federal Fair Housing Act, and they have been since the 1980s when President Ronald Reagan added protection for familial status to fair housing laws.

trip to Haiti humbles surgeon Steve Kleeman marks fourth trip to aid those without medical care
teve Kleeman, M.D., of Monfort Heights has traveled widely, with several recent trips to Honduras to perform gynecologic surgeries for underserved women. But his recent trip to Haiti completely humbled him. The people of Gros-Morne in Haiti were the poorest he’s ever seen. It’s a country without an infrastructure in an area denuded of trees. It lacks roads, police, electricity and adequate medical care. And even though Haiti is a Caribbean island, and Gros-Morne is about 30 miles from the sea, the majority of people eat goat, rice and beans because there are no roads to transport, nor electricity to refrigerate fish. Kleeman, director of the urogynecology division at Good Samaritan Hospital, with offices in Clifton and West Chester, spent April 21- 28 along with urogynecology fellow and surgeon Catrina Crisp and volunteers at Light of the World Charity providing general gynecology and pelvic prolapse surgery for women. Kleeman and Crisp delivered a baby via C-section for a woman who had been laboring for a couple of days. They also performed basic general surgery, but had to stop each day by mid-afternoon. Not because there wasn’t need, but because generatorprovided electricity was unreliable. Conditions were primitive: the only operating room lights were ones provided by headlamps they wore. Hot water was non-existent, and there was no air conditioning despite 95degree temperatures and 90 percent humidity. Surgeons
were made even hotter by barrier-proof surgical gowns; it was so hot Kleeman cut off his surgical pants at the knees. Doctors and nurses went home in the evenings, so hospital patients were left alone at night to be cared for by family members. “These kinds of trips are always worthwhile,” he said. “There is the obvious joy one gets when giving to those with a medical need, but those people whom we consider poor have a tremendous outlook on life and can teach us in the first world many things, like the importance of a genuine smile, a kind gesture, sharing what you have with others despite your own needs – or being prayed for. Watching a loved one sit with a patient and tend to their needs when nothing else can be done is humbling. These simple acts are more powerful than any amount of money or goods that we can bring.” The Haitian system is pretty broken, Kleeman said. “Actually, there is no system at all. There is no form of government, no paved roads, and in the Alma Mater Hospital, where we were, patients pay a fee, pick a number, and wait in order to be evaluated. The hospital provided basic care: pediatrics, maternity, radiology, two operating rooms and a cholera ward.” Cholera is considered by many to be a 19th century disease, but it’s prevalent in third world countries today. It’s caused by eating food or drinking water contaminated by the feces of an infected person. And while cholera can be treated fairly quickly in first-world countries by rehydration, in third world countries people die

A young man is lucky to be treated for cholera at the Alma Mater Hospital in Gros-Morne, Haiti. Although Americans think of cholera as a 19th century disease, poor water sanitation in Haiti has greatly increased the number of cases there. THANKS TO R.J. ASHLEY of it rather quickly. People in Haiti use the rivers to clean themselves and for drinking water. It was not unusual to see children and adults bathing naked in the river, said Kleeman. Gros-Morne is a 4.5 hour bus ride north from Port au Prince. Kleeman said roads were paved for half the way, and the rest of the way they bumped over dirt roads and drove through
creeks. It was the fourth annual humanitarian surgical trip Kleeman has taken, his third with Light of the World Charities of Palm City, Florida. Good Samaritan Hospital donated equipment, sutures and trays of instruments. The group stayed in a safe house next door to the hospital. Because of the extreme poverty and lack of any governmental
organization, such as police, it was unsafe to be outside at night. The safe house was surrounded by a concrete wall and barbed wire, and had an iron gated entrance. “They did have running water in the house and we could run a fan or light in the evening,” he said. If the doctors hadn’t come, he said, most people would just do without. “It’s not unusual to see people with different maladies walking down the street or with goiters,” he said. “There is little medical treatment available, and most people have basic needs like food, water and clothing.” Each morning, Kleeman, a parishioner of St. Ignatius Loyola Catholic Church in Monfort Heights, attended 6:30 a.m. mass. He noticed that although Haitians were very poor, people dressed up and presented themselves well, with women wearing their best dresses and men in their nicest slacks and shirts. But much of their clothing was old and worn. Kleeman was moved to give away all his clothing except what he was wearing to the housekeeper and some patients before he returned home. One heartbreaking incident pointed up the real tragedy of poor medical care in Haiti. A woman about six months pregnant having seizures was carried into the hospital on a bed sheet by her family. She was given an IV. Kleeman diagnosed her with severe eclampsia, a condition in pregnancy related to hypertension that can affect about 10 percent of women. “Unfortunately, we thought she was being prepared for delivery, but nothing was done for her for an entire day. She was eventually transferred in the back of a pickup truck for a 30-mile ride to another hospital,” he said, his voice breaking with emotion. “It was heartbreaking to see her two children and extended family crying all around her.” Kleeman wanted to move toward delivery, but the local doctor in charge suggested she be transferred to another hospital because they had a pediatrician. “The baby would have died, but mother might have lived,” he said, “and it bothered me to no end. I kept thinking about her in the back of that pickup truck going over those roads. I don’t think she made it.” Because of the lack of organization and communication in Haiti, he was never able to find out whether or not she survived. He said he still thinks of that woman.

Jewish Family Service hosts annual meeting “Things are going extremely well at Jewish Family Service. We continue to touch lives in ways that other Jewish agencies cannot. And we continue to improve every month and every day,” said Michael Schwartz, president of the board at the Jewish Family Service 68th annual meeting July 19 at Rockdale Temple Chapel in Amberley Village. “My life philosophy is all about improvement. No matter how big or small the improvement, just keep getting better,” he said. Schwartz then pointed to several ways Jewish Family Service has improved over the past year. These included revenues being up 19 percent, the expansion of programs to help more people in our community, the increased involvement of board members and management not accepting the status quo to push
Mark Miller of Forest Park and Andrea Lerner Levenson of Amberley Village were installed as vice presidents of Jewish Family Services. PROVIDED the agency to improve. Executive Director Beth Schwartz focused on Jewish Family Service being the “doing” organization in the community, and having an approachable, serious and caring staff to do the necessary work. She said, “We are approach-
able. We can do what we do because our clients know we are tolerant of all situations. By being approachable, anyone can feel comfortable asking for our personal and professional guidance through life’s challenges. “We are serious. We are serious about what we do. And we deal with serious issues including homelessness, infertility, domestic violence, unplanned pregnancy, hunger, elder victimization, successful parenting, mentoring, bullying, chronic illness, caregiving and mental illness. “We are caring. We care about what we do. We care about the forgotten, the challenged, the disconnected, the alone. We care about results and using measurable or trackable metrics to prove how we exceeded our targets to strengthen our community.
“Our staff is not afraid to roll up our sleeves and do whatever it takes to make sure one day our community will benefit from the Jewish Family Service vision of leading the way to a Jewish community where everyone lives with dignity, security and hope.” She also praised the superb leadership of the board of directors and thanked them for being part of the “doing.” Following a nominating report by Andrea Lerner Levenson, the new board of directors was installed. The 2012-2013 officers of the board are Michael Schwartz, president; Andrea Lerner Levenson, vice president; Mark Miller, vice president; Larry Juran, treasurer; Susan Shorr, secretary, and Bruce Baker, immediate past president. Daniel Kerbel, Daniel Phillips and Stephen Goldberg were in-
stalled as new board members to serve a three-year term. Gail Friedman retired from the board. Board members continuing their term on the board are Suzy Marcus Goldberg, Steve Holman, Elaine Kaplan, Danny Lipson, Leslie Miller, Pam Sacherman, Lauren Scharf, Scott Slovin, Gary Smith, Max Yamson, John Youkilis and Sarita Zilch. Bruce Baker received the Miriam Dettlebach Award. This award is given in honor of the first executive director of Jewish Family Service as recognition of exceptional volunteer service to the agency. Bruce, who served as president of the board from 2008-2010, thanked the vibrant board members and professional staff that “makes you want to rise to another level to become a better volunteer and lay leader.”

Pickle recipes for cucumber season
I wanted to share some good news: Our newest grandchild, little Emerson Shane Heikenfeld, was born last week to son Shane and daughter-in-law Courtney. She is, of course, beautiful with dark hair and is already fashionably dressed by her grandma Terri, who is Courtney’s mom. I can’t wait to take her on a stroll through Rita the herb Heikenfeld garden! RITA’S KITCHEN The cucumbers are starting to bear, so I will have plenty to make pickles. From the requests I’m getting, it looks like a lot of you want to make pickles, too.
Traditional bread-and-butter pickles For Loveland reader Joan Manzo, who wanted to learn how to make an old-fashioned bread-andbutter pickle.
3 quarts thinly sliced cucumbers 2 cups thinly sliced green peppers 2 cups thinly sliced onions 2 cups thinly sliced carrots 2 red bell peppers, chopped (optional)
into ¼-inch slices, unpeeled 2 pounds onions, thinly sliced 1 ⁄3 cup canning salt 2 cups sugar 2 tablespoons mustard seed 2 teaspoons turmeric 2 teaspoons celery seed 1 teaspoon ginger 1 teaspoon peppercorns 3 cups vinegar, clear or cider
Combine cucumber and onions and layer with salt, cover with ice cubes and let stand 1½ hours. Drain, rinse, drain again. Combine remaining ingredients in pan and bring to boil. Add cucumbers and onions and return to a boil. Pack hot pickles and liquid into hot jars, leaving ¼-inch headspace. Remove air bubbles. Adjust twopiece caps if using canning jars. Let cool to room temperature before refrigerating. You don’t need to process these if you are storing in the refrigerator, but if you are going to store them in the pantry, it’s a good idea to do that by processing 10 minutes in a boiling water bath.
4 pounds cucumbers, cut
Brine: Mix together: 2 tablespoons celery seed 3 cups sugar 1 ⁄3 cup salt 2 cups clear or cider vinegar
The reader who sent Rita the recipe for these pickles remembers mixing them in a laundry tub. THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD.
Quick-and-easy washtub pickles For Marilyn and Lawrence. Donna Woods sent this recipe to me last year and it continues to be a much-requested one during cucumber season. She told me: “It has been a family favorite for over 30 years. I have many fond memories making this with my dad. We would mix it in a laundry tub.” Donna said when you mix the ingredients together, it will look a bit dry at first, but as it sits
the juices will come out. They remind me a little of bread-and-butter pickles, minus the turmeric. These are delicious with deli meat sandwiches. Donna’s original recipe called for a jar of drained pimentos, but I used red bell peppers and I also sliced the carrots instead of chopping them. I’ve also substituted cider for clear vinegar. These are the only adaptations I made – no need to improve on perfection! Pickles: Mix together:
Take care when getting a home inspection Record low mortgage rates are prompting more people to enter the housing market – often first-time home owners. We all know it’s important to get a house inspected before you buy, but be careful. Howard Not all Ain inspections are HEY HOWARD! alike and you could end up with a nightmare. Christina Howard says she feels the Fairfield house she and her husband bought earlier this year is turning into a money pit. “Where we first noticed problems was in the utility room when you run the dishwasher … The dishwasher was leaking a continuous leak. When you turned it on, it got worse and that’s how we saw it a week after moving in,” Howard says. All that water has created major problems in the house. “The whole bottom of the cabinets rotted out. A contractor said it would cost more money to rebuild if we take off just the bottom. It would cost more money to rebuild them than to just buy new ones,” Howard says. Repairs are estimated to cost thousands of dollars, money the Howards can’t afford, so they’ve begun the clean-up themselves and found a lot of mold. “Mold is on the inside of a wall so you can’t merely bleach all that. It’s three walls, the whole kitchen floor, the whole dining room floor, and we spent the last three weeks doing demolition,” Howard says. The Howards 16-year-
old son has a room right next to the kitchen and he was so allergic to the mold his eyes swelled shut. He had to leave the house for weeks while the mold remediation was done. “Everybody’s pointing fingers but nobody wants to take responsibility for it,” Howard says. But what about that whole house inspection they got before buying? Howard says they called the inspection company but it won’t call them back. I checked the inspection company’s brochure and found it does not display the symbol of the American Society of Home Inspectors. I always recommend you hire an ASHI-certified home inspector – especially in Ohio, where no license is required, so anybody can call themselves a home inspector. ASHI certification means the inspector has a certain amount of experience and must pass a series of tests. Another problem is that the Howards got the name of the home inspector from their real estate agent. That’s not recommended because there’s a conflict of interest. The inspector can feel obligated not to reveal problems so the sale goes through and the inspector gets more referrals from that agent in the future. No home inspector is going to guarantee they won’t miss something, but you’re better off using an ASHI-certified home inspector you pick yourself. Howard Ain answers consumer complaints weekdays on WKRC-TV Local 12. Write to him at 12 WKRC-TV, 1906 Highland Ave., Cincinnati 45219.
Pour brine over veggies. Let sit several hours on counter, stirring every once in a while. Store in refrigerator.
Tips from Rita’s kitchen
Sweet potatoes for baby: When choosing sweet potatoes for your baby, look for ones that are firm, with no bruises or cracks. Medium sized ones tend to have the best texture – large ones can sometimes be stringy. Don’t store your sweet potatoes in the refrigerator. I think it ruins their flavor and can make them tough. Instead, keep them in a cool, dark place. Removing corn from
cob: Put the corn in the center hole of a Bundt or angel food pan. This anchors the corn so you can scrape the kernels off easily, and the kernels drop right into the pan.
Can you help?
Soy sauce sub for Ellen S. from Western Hills. “My sons are both allergic to soy and so many recipes call for soy sauce – including that delicious sounding beef pot roast with garlic and ginger.” Dewey’s Pizza Greek salad dressing for Angela L. “I am interested in replicating Dewey’s Greek salad dressing. Do you have any ideas? It is a red, I think sun-dried tomato base.”
Wow! The response to my Impossible Pie request was huge. Thanks to all. I’ll pare through them ASAP for sharing. Rita Nader Heikenfeld is an herbalist, educator and author. Email her at firstname.lastname@example.org with “Rita’s kitchen” in the subject line. Call 513-248-7130, ext. 356.
