BECAUSE COMMUNITY MATTERS

Mount Healthy offers low-cost senior housing By Monica Boylson mboylson@communitypress.com

Senior citizens will soon have an opportunity for affordable housing in Mount Healthy. Construction continues at the Reserve on South Martin, a 60unit building on Martin Street in the city. The project is a collaboration with the city of Mount Healthy and the Cincinnati Metropolitan Housing Authority to create affordable housing and revitalize the neighborhood near Martin Street. The building will offer amenities for renters and also have a community room available for use by Mount Healthy residents. Development Construction Manager Pat Lance said the building should be ready for occupants in late fall. Mount Healthy Safety Service Director Bill Kocher said that in the next 60 days, CMHA will announce a week in advance of when they will begin accepting applications, both online and in-person, at a location in Mount Healthy that has yet to be determined. “It’s first come, first served,” Kocher said. To qualify for occupancy, individuals must: be 55 years or older by Dec. 1, 2012; have an adjusted gross income of less than $59,900 for single occupancy or less than $68,450 for two-person occupancy; and be a citizen of the United States or a non-citizen with eligible immigration status. CMHA estimates that rent for a one bedroom unit will be

$450 to $475 and $580 to $610 for a two bedroom unit. “The benefits are twofold,” Kocher said. “We got rid of blighted properties with a very high rate of police runs and it’s going to stabilize the community.” The city purchased more than a dozen properties that were vacant, in short sale or in foreclosure and negotiated with banks for properties in an attempt to clean up the area, Kocher said. More than $10 million in federal funds were secured for the purchase and construction through the neighborhood stabilization program, a government-funded program to provide grants for communities suffering from foreclosures and abandoned homes. Mount Healthy Police Chief Marc Waldeck said the police department is excited for the housing project. “It was a high crime area and we were down there quite frequently. The one big issue we had back there was drug dealing. Most of the problems stemmed from that,” Waldeck said. As the building nears completion, Kocher urged people considering occupancy to “get their ducks in a row.” Kocher said Social Security number, ID and documents to verify income may make the difference when it comes to submitting an application. “Each application is going to be time stamped,” Kocher said.

Brent Elementary teaches GOLDEN RULE with photos By Monica Boylson mboylson@communitypress.com

Treating others as you want to be treated is a central message students at Brent Elementary in Finneytown are learning. The school has found a unique way to teach students the golden rule and other good deeds. On a brick wall near the entrance of the school, more than a dozen black and white photos show students displaying acts of virtue from compassion to teamwork to responsibility. The pictures, which show students from the 2011-12 second grade class, were installed the week before students returned to school, Aug. 21. “It’s more of a way to give students a visual about what it means to be compassionate or to take responsibility,” secondgrade teacher Tonya Zerkle said. Zerkle, with assistance from Brent special education teacher Marty Mayer, secured funds last year to complete the project, which included taking pictures, printing them on tin and installing the photos on the wall. Mayer wrote a grant and submitted it to the Finneytown Education Foundation Inc., a nonprofit organization independent of Finneytown schools, which provides grants to support academics, arts, and athletics in the school district. “Our primary focus is to support education in the schools,” foundation grant coordinator Mary Barkocy said. She said the board was impressed by Brent Elementary’s approach to learning.

“We loved that it was a character program that actually showed pictures of the children doing good deeds,” Barkocy said. Some students who were in the pictures, rat-

tled off good deeds they’ve learned. “Do what you’re told,” Samuel Yocum, 8, said. Yocum is featured in a picture that teaches students to play fairly. “It teaches everyone that you should help people that are in need,” Bronwynne Rodenhauser, 8, said.

Rodenhauser’s picture shows students to help others in need. “Sometimes, if I see litter on the street, I pick it up,” Emmaline Tudor, 8, said. Impressed by the outcome, Zerkle said she hopes students continue to learn from the display on the wall.

The Greenhills Village Planning Commission has forwarded proposed zoning code changes to the Greenhills Village Council as the Village works on updating its code. To get public input, council has set two public hearings on the proposed amendments. The first will be at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 12, at the Greenhills Municipal Building, 11000 Winton Road.

Thomas appointed to school board By Monica Boylson

mboylson@communitypress.com

The Winton Woods City Schools Board of Education has a new member. Forest Park resident Eric Thomas was named to the board to replace Brandon Wiers whose resignation was effective Aug. 15.

Thomas was sworn in Aug. 22. “All of our candidates were excellent. They had completely different competencies and strengths. We felt he would bring some additional strength to the board,” board President Tim Cleary said. Thomas has worked in

education for 18 years in several capacities, including teacher, principal and most recently as Thomas the director of the office of innovation

for Cincinnati Public Schools and currently as a chief support officer for the University of Virginia. Thomas has worked in many educational initiatives to improve school districts. While Thomas was principal at Aiken High School he helped improve the school’s state rating

from academic emergency to effective. Thomas said that with the flexibility of his position at the university, it “made sense” to apply for the board position. “I’ve lived in Forest Park for 13 years and now I have the opportunity to give back to the communi-

ty,” he said. Thomas said he looks forward to getting to know the district and supporting the schools. “I really interested in understanding how we can provide every kid support. I’m a firm believer that all kids are capable of doing great things,” he said.

North College Hill band need instruments Clarinets, tubas french horns in high demand By Monica Boylson mboylson@communitypress.com

The North College Hill city schools marching bands may not have 76 trombones leading the parade, but they hope to add a few more instruments to the program. The school district, led by band director and teacher Devin Rodgers, 25, has launched a request for people to donate gently used instruments to the bands. “We’re always short on good quality instruments,” Rodgers said. Some instruments in high demand at the schools are clarinets, tubas, french horns and baritones. Rodgers said that in his three years at the school district, the high school marching band has doubled and there is increased interest in the program. “It’s fun to watch it grow and to watch the kids’ en-

thusiasm about it,” Rodgers said. But with more students participating in band, the

school’s supply of instruments is spread thin. “In our concert band in the high school, we have one

tuba for three tuba players,” Rodgers said. In the past, Rodgers said the school has received in-

strument donations from alumni and community members. “We’re lucky that North

College Hill is excited about the band. The community is very supportive,” he said. Freshmen Allen Chichester and Andrew Steele, both 14, are members of the North College Hill High School Trojan Band. The two are able to use instruments that were donated to the school. “It’s best to have it here,” Chichester said, who plays trumpet. Without donations to the school, students need to have their own instrument or they can rent one from a local music store. “It’s best to donate an instrument to someone in need because they can have fun playing it,” Chichester said. Steele, who plays trombone, said that because people have donated to the school, it will give him an opportunity to try other instruments. “We’re thankful for the instruments because it gives us a chance to play,” Steele said. To donate an instrument, call North College Hill High School at 728-4783.

Water polo finds its way to St. Xavier By Tom Skeen tskeen@communitypress.com

SPRINGFIELD TWP. — In its first official season as a varsity sport at St. Xavier High School, the water polo team is off to a 3-4 start to begin the season. The Bombers opened the season at the Napoleon Invitational and went 2-1, but came back to Cincinnati for the Milford Invitational and went 1-3 to sit where they are currently. After being established as a club team in 2011, coach Michael Roberts is pleased with where is squad stands. “We are doing well,” he said. “This is only our second season so we are still at the developmental stage right now.” Leading the Bombers is senior Cameron Young and junior Jake Westerkamp. Both are team captains and Roberts believes they have the skill sets to play at the next level. “(Cameron) has a lot of skill,” Roberts said. “He is a fantastic swimmer and finished fifth in the state in the 200-yard freestyle last year. He is left-handed and has a lot of talent. Jake is from Milford and played a little bit of water polo in junior high, so he came to the school with a little bit of experience. He’s fantastic.” Another key contributor is senior Nate Sultan, who plays baseball at St. Xavier and has a lot of potential, according to Roberts. Between varsity and junior varsity, Roberts said there are nearly 30 kids in the program. The ones who came to tryouts ranged from football players to kids with little-to-no swimming

experience. “Some guys came out because they think it looks cool,” Roberts said. “They saw it on the Olympics and they thought it looked cool. Our kids aren’t all swimmers; some have never swum at St. Xavier and don’t intend to swim there. We actually have kids that were either tired of playing football or that sustained an injury and it prevents them from playing.” To prove what Roberts said to be true, all you have to do is look at their roster and see that they have three former football players, a guard from the basketball team and Sultan from the baseball team. After the early success, the Bombers ran into trouble with teams from their own region such as Sycamore, Princeton and Mason. Although they lost to Mason and Princeton by a combined five goals, Sycamore took it to the Bombers 15-2. “They all have established programs,” Roberts said about his regional competition. “Sycamore is clearly one of the better teams in Cincinnati. They have (a few players) who are in their fourth year playing together. They are very good and will probably challenge for the state championship.” As the Bombers sit at 3-4, Roberts knows one key thing that could turn the season in the right direction. “If I could teach my kids anticipation and better reaction time we would take a big leap forward in our performance,” he said. “Just more experience, more games and more experience to make anticipation natural.”

Lancing CovCath La Salle High School had stellar defense and special teams in a 27-11 win at Lancer Stadium Aug. 31. La Salle touchdowns included a 22yard run from Jason Bell, a 60-yard interception return by Jaleel Hytchye, a 64-yard punt return from Jeremy Larkin and a 42-yard fumble recovery from Lemuel Weyer. Jason Rumke converted three of the four extra points (fourth kick blocked). Next up: The Lancers play at Princeton Friday, Sept. 7.

FINNEYTOWN — Going into the 2012 season, Finneytown girls soccer coach John Volker wasn’t sure what to expect from his squad. What he got in the season opener was more than he could have asked for when his Lady Wildcats beat Winton Woods 8-0 to equal their win total at home from a year ago. “It was awesome,” Volker said about their season-opening victory. “They were all surprised. We were usually on the other end of that. We were not running up the score by any stretch of the imagination.” Their eight goals were four less than they scored all of last year and the victory avenged a 2-1 season-opening loss to the Lady Warriors in 2011. Leading Finneytown out of the gate is junior forward Rebecca Snyder, who recorded

three goals and an assist against Winton Woods. “Rebecca did really well in the first game,” Volker said. “She has really matured a lot since last year. Her work ethic is amazing and she is a great practice player. From last year to this year, in one game, she did what we have been working on and ended up with three goals. She is playing to her strengths and reading the game really well.” Volker was impressed with his defense in the opener, but admits the ball wasn’t in their end often during the shutout. Leading that defense is senior Rafaela Vasilakis, or “Ruffles” as her teammates like to call her. The senior surprised Volker in the opener after she recorded three assists, something Volker said was a surprise. “(Her assists) were a great addition,” he said. “She is more defensive minded, that is her 18yard line. She runs the defense.

She leads by example, is a great practice player and brings 110 percent to every game. She is our leader on the field and the other girls feed off of her.” Joining Vasilakis on the defense is the lone starting freshman, Maddie Mayes, sophomore Ava Closson and junior Lindsey Harmon. Even after the solid start, Volker knows it’s early and he needs more out of his senior midfielders Hanna Cobbs and Morgan Wolfram. “They need to step up,” Volker said. “Cobbs is coming off a knee injury so she is a little apprehensive. We need them to come up and play their hearts out and raise their level the rest of the season.” Despite a 3-0 loss to Indian Hill Aug. 29, the result was the closest match the two teams have played since 2009 and it is a much-improved result compared to the 8-0 loss they suffered last season.

Armstrong was the first, but why? It was a lesson in leadership “This is one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind.” Those were the words uttered by Neil Armstrong as he stepped onto the surface of the moon on July 20, 1969. Most people know that Neil Armstrong was the first man to walk on the moon, but why he was chosen for that honor? Why would a quiet farm boy from Wapakoneta, Ohio, who went on to become a Navy test pilot, be chosen before other more famous astronauts? Not one to seek out fame, Armstrong certainly was not famous before his selection to command the first mission to the moon. Armstrong wasn’t even among the original seven astronauts, featured in the movie “The Right Stuff.” To be sure some of them were no longer available. John Glenn, for example, had left to pursue political aspirations. The first U.S. man in space, Alan Shepard, had been medically disqualified. However, there were still others who were older and more experienced for the job.

The answer lies from a space mission more than three years earlier when Armstrong was the pilot aboard the Gemini Daryl Smith COMMUNITY PRESS VIII. Gemini was America’s GUEST COLUMNIST second space program following the Mercury project. Armstrong’s Gemini craft was to dock with another unmanned drone craft in space, using a procedure which would later be essential to the Apollo program when the command module would dock with the lunar module. Shortly after Armstrong completed his approach and docking, Gemini entered the other side of the Earth – away from radio contact with Mission Control – and began to spin without reason. They undocked from the drone, expecting the spinning to stop, but it only increased. The astronauts were caught totally by surprise as the craft began tumbling like

a dryer drum, spinning nearly out of control. Armstrong recalled Newton’s First Law of Motion: objects in motion tend to stay in motion. He analyzed the situation and reasoned that some force was needed to counteract the rotation. He deployed a small engine, used for reentry, on another side of the craft and activated the thrust in the opposite direction of the spin. The craft slowly, but mercifully, stopped its rotation and came to rest. Armstrong’s calm under stress caught NASA’s attention and led to Armstrong’s selection as the commander of the Apollo XI mission to the moon. Armstrong was shy and reserved, shunning the spotlight. He would never, for example, volunteer for “Dancing With The Stars” as his Apollo XI crewmate, Buzz Aldrin, did in 2010. Armstrong went on to become a professor at the University of Cincinnati following his days at NASA, then quietly returned to his Ohio farm. Good leaders maintain their

Armstrong’s demonstration of these abilities resulted in being chosen for one of the great leadership positions of the 20th century: To be the first man on the

Pigskin Preview remembers Tony Merk Hundreds of football players from kindergarten through eighth grade descended on La Salle High School’s Lancer Stadium Aug. 18 and 19 for the second annual Tony Merk Pigskin Preview. The weekend tournament raised funds for the Tony Merk Memorial Scholarship and CancerFree KIDS through its “Tackle Childhood Cancer” program. Multiple teams from the following schools participated: » Our Lady of Grace, Groesbeck » Our Lady of the Visitation, Mack » St. Bartholomew, Finneytown » St. Ignatius, Monfort Heights » St. James, White Oak » St. John the Baptist, Dry Ridge » St. John the Baptist, Harrison » St. Martin of Tours, Cheviot » St. Susanna, Mason » St. Veronica-St. Thomas More, Anderson Township » Third and fourth grade teams from Oak Hills Local School District » Schools affiliated with Covington Catholic High School (team numbers reflected the years Covington Catholic won state football championships) The Pigskin Preview keeps the memory of Tony Merk alive. Six-year-old Tony died in 2011 after battling medulloblastoma, an aggressive brain cancer. In his St. James Panthers take a break during the second annual Tony Merk Pigskin Preview, a football tournament hosted by La Salle High School Aug. 18 and 19. PROVIDED

memory, La Salle and the Merk family started the Tony Merk Memorial Scholarship Fund to help young men attend La Salle. The event also raised awareness of CancerFree KIDS. Its mission is to eradicate cancer as a life-threatening disease in children by funding promising research that might otherwise go unfunded. Funds collected will be used to enhance basic and clinical research at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center. Tony’s parents, Lynne and Rick Merk, said they were “humbled and overwhelmed” by the support. “It was a blessed event with great football, fun, fundraising, and beautiful weather. We raised money for the Tony Merk Memorial Scholarship at LaSalle High School that will allow young men to benefit from the strong LaSal-

lian education leading them to contribute to our community as servant leaders. In collaboration with Tackle Childhood Cancer, we also raised substantial funds for childhood cancer research.” Steve King of CancerFree KIDS appreciated the opportunity to raise funds for research to fight pediatric cancer. “The event was awesome, the participants were wonderfully supportive and fun, and the Merk family, Greg Tankersley [La Salle’s director of Community Development], and the entire La Salle team are true blessings in our community. We look forward to working together for many years to come.” The Pigskin Preview recognizes Tony’s love of the sport. More than 30 youth football teams participated in the inaugural Pigskin Preview.

Serve after-school snacks that won’t fill kids up The kids are back in school and when they get home, they’re usually hungry. But you don’t want to feed them so much that they have no appetite for dinner. Here are some recipes to make ahead of time for healthy snacking. Rita Check out Heikenfeld tips for RITA’S KITCHEN packing safe lunches, as well on my blog Cooking with Rita at Cincinnati.com. I have to chuckle when I give advice on how to pack safe lunches since all during our school years, we packed lunches without ice packs or thermoses and, yes, used paper bags to tote them. Mom used to pack us fried kibbi sandwiches, and they smelled so good that all the kids wanted to know what they were. I was embarrassed to say what they really were so I would tell them they were Lebanese hamburgers. Today a sandwich like that would be considered very cool! We never got sick either, but as I always say, now that we’re more aware of food spoilage, better safe than sorry.

Pineapple popsicles 3 cups fresh pineapple chunks or 1 14.5 oz. can chunks packed in juice, not syrup, drained 1 ⁄3 cup 2 percent milk A few tablespoons sugar or

You can add chia or flax seeds to up the Omega 3 content of Rita’s chunky granola.

honey if it needs sweetened (start with 3 tablespoons and go from there)

Process all ingredients in batches in a food processor or blender until as smooth as you like. Pour into molds or cups with wooden sticks inserted, if necessary. Freeze several hours. Makes 8.

THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD.

Frozen grape skewers

We used to pick grapes from a local vineyard. After making grape juice and jelly, I always had enough left over to make these, which were a favorite of my boys. Use a flat head toothpick and skewer 3-4 grapes on each one. Freeze hard uncovered and then put into freezer containers. Let the kids eat these right out of the freezer.

Health tips from Rita’s kitchen

Fresh pineapple helps keeps bones strong. Pineapple also improves digestion and even helps relieve cold symptoms with its high vitamin C content. Pineapple juice is soothing to a sore throat. Grapes, especially if they’re red, contain powerful anti-oxidants.

Rita’s chunky granola

It’s all the rage now. Chunky granola is in. Here’s how to make it. ⁄3 cup maple syrup ⁄3 cup packed brown sugar (I

Line a large cookie sheet with parchment or spray with cooking spray.

Add ¼ cup chia seeds and or 2 tablespoons flax seeds with the oat and nut mixture. The flax and chia are optional but know that they are huge sources of Omega 3 fatty acids, which are good for your heart, brain, eyes, nails, skin and hair. Chia is close to flax in Omega 3 and higher in Omega 3 than hemp seeds (yes, they’re

edible and I use them a lot). Light brown sugar can be substituted. Use all vanilla extract: 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon Rita Nader Heikenfeld is an herbalist, educator and author. Email her at columns@communitypress.com with “Rita’s kitchen” in the subject line. Call 513-248-7130, ext. 356.

Sunday, Sept. 30, in conjunction with St. Jude Parish Oktoberfest in Bridgetown. Sophie, daughter of Bridgetown residents Mark and Missy Meinhardt, was an active and healthy 18-month-old girl who was diagnosed with an aggressive brain tumor while vacationing with her family at Hilton Head Island in August 2006. Sophie was airlifted from Savannah Hospital to Cincinnati Children’s Hospital for further diagnosis and treatment; Sophie died three days later during surgery to remove the brain tumor. In the six years since the run’s inception, over $250,000 has been raised and 25 scholarships have been awarded. Sophie’s brain tumor was an atypical teratoid/ rhabdoid tumor (AT/RT).

‘Cat’ opens Covedale season Just as summer winds down, “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof” starts sizzling at the Covedale Center for the Performing Arts Sept. 6 through 30. The classic Tennessee Williams drama – the first of the Covedale Center’s 11th season – is set in the steamy Mississippi Delta and introduces audiences to cotton tycoon Big Daddy Pollitt and his dysfunctional family. “This whole thing is about keeping secrets that leads to lies,” explained director Greg Procaccino, who has been working Cincinnati’s theater scene onand off-stage for years. The production focuses

on relationships among members of Big Daddy’s family – especially between son Brick and Brick’s wife, Maggie, the “Cat.” “This is the real play Tennessee Williams wrote in 1955,” he explained, not exactly the 1958 film version starring Burl Ives, Paul Newman and Elizabeth Taylor. “It’s a little grittier. The people aren’t as nice. They’re a little more desperate. “And when the secrets are revealed, that’s when the drama is unleashed,” Procaccino said. Tim Perrino, executive artistic director for Cincinnati Landmark Productions, which operates the Covedale Center, is pleased to launch the season with

the timeless work. The selection of “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof” is characteristic of the Covedale Center’s offerings. “Every theater should have its niche of what you put on theatrically,” Perrino explained. “Certainly classic dramas and musicals – this is a very populist theater. It’s part of our mission. They’re not the newest titles, but they’re great titles. This is one of the greater plays by Tennessee

Saengerchor bronze winner at choir games The Kolping Saengerchor has now successfully competed on the world choir stage. They have performed in the Open Competition Folklore Division of the World Choir Games. The unity experienced by all during the games speaks to the power of music to bring all together as one. The Saengerchor sang on July 5 in the Proctor & Gamble Hall of the Aronoff Center in the Open Competion Category 21 Folkore. The songs the chorus performed were “Brueder, reicht die Hand zum Bunde” by Mozart, “Der Lindenbaum” by Schubert, “Als Freunde” by Onnen and “Wunderschoener Norden” by Frey-Voellen. The performance was judged by a panel of five international choral music professionals. The performance was met with a lively applause at the conclusion. Five other groups from around the world also performed that morning. Outside the

stage door the chorus gathered for a photo session with the Little Lark Choir from China. The first week of competition came to an end with the Awards Ceremony held on Saturday evening, July 7. The Kolping Saengerchor was honored by being awarded a Bronze Diploma in Folklore Level IX. This prize will be displayed in a very special place on the wall of the group’s clubhouse. The Saengerchor participation in the World Choir Games ended with a community Friendship Concert. This concert was given by the Kolping Saengerchor, the Saengerkreis Hildburghausen from Germany and the Crescendo Arte Children’s Choir from Colombia at Mainstrasse Village in Covington. There were 350 people in attendance and the audience was thrilled with the international concert and feelings of worldwide togetherness.

TOP 10 REASONS ...to check out a church on Saturday at 5:30pm. No kidding. 1

You get to sleep in all weekend.

2

You don’t want to miss election spin on Sunday morning news shows.

3

You leave church on Saturday feeling great and still have a day left on the weekend.

4

You can go to Sunday morning soccer games with the kids.

5

You never have a hangover at 5:30pm on Saturday.

6

If you don’t like it, there’s still time to go to another church on Sunday morning.

7

Your kids can go to “Sunday School” on Saturday.

8

You can still go out to dinner and a movie after. (and did we mention you get to sleep in?)

9

God really loves you. We know He loves you on Saturdays, too.

10

You might actually enjoy it. Seriously! 11340 CENTURY CIRCLE EAST CINCINNATI, OH 45246 4'3."&'.,0)) * %#+/$!615#+5#++!2#.5(-

If you’re not sure what you think of God ... or have been away from church for a while ...or just interested in exploring what Jesus is about, then come and check things out. In an auditorium that seats 2,400 people, you can find a few empty chairs to surround yourself, kick back in the low lighting, drink a free coffee and relax. Who knows what you might discover? Yeah, we have Sunday morning times too at 9, 10:30 & 11:59am, but maybe Saturday at 5:30pm fits you better.

See for yourself what people are talking about! NORTH

Students help on Mt. Adams mural

Two students work on large multi-part mural project in Mount Adams. PROVIDED

Ten local students worked on a large multipart mural project in Mount Adams. In addition to a mural that will serve as the focal point of the project, the wall below the Holy Cross Church will be accented with cement cast designs inspired by the mural, images from the church, and Mount Adams history. The students include some from the West Side: Andy Crusham, 21, University of Cincinnati DAAP;

Madeline Delgado, 18, Mount Notre Dame High School; Julian Gregory,15, Elder High School; Virginia Johnson, 18, Seven Hills; Lauren Jones, 18, Lakota West High School; Alex Logsdon, 16, Sycamore High School; Tam Nguyen, 16, Dixie Heights High School; Sean Redmond, 18, St. Xavier High School; Theodore Simon,18, Sycamore High School;

Jazmin Smith, 15, North College Hill High School. The murals will be created in partnership with the Mount Adams Civic Association, and will be led by Westerkamp with assistance from artists Ximena Flores and Lisa MeridaPaytes. The main mural is at 1136 St. Gregory St., while the wall with the castings wraps around Monastery Street and onto Celestial Street, below the Holy Cross Church. The project was set to be finished the

first week of August. This summer, ArtWorks employed 115 students and 32 artists to complete 15 projects. For more information about the projects, visit ArtWorksCincinnati.org.

Joining them will be the 2005 New York Times Librarian of the Year and College Hill Branch Manager Arnice Smith with stories just for kids. Amateur storytellers will have the opportunity to share their own story in a special

session with event partner Teilen. Smith, then the Children’s Librarian for the College Hill Branch, made history in 2005 by becoming the first African American Ohioan to be named one of the New York Times Librarians of the Year. The program honors librarians from around the country who have provided outstanding public service. For more information, contact Diane Smiley at 513-369-7855 or Kate Lawrence at 513-369-6944.

The eighth annual Family Wiffle Ball tournament Sept. 15, at Kuliga Park in Green Township is one big West Side party to benefit Pink Ribbon Girls, the nonprofit that helps young breast cancer patients with meals, housekeeping, transportation and peer support. The games run from 4-11 p.m. that Saturday, with family-friendly fun, according to Pink Ribbon Girls Founder Tracie Metzger, who serves as executive director of the Cin-

cinnati Region. The gathering includes a home run derby and food booths serving hot dogs, brats and metts. Beer booths are new this year. There will be giveaways, raffles for about 100 baskets, Metzger split-thepot and a silent auction. Sullivan Janszen Band will perform acoustic classic rock live, and a big-screen TV will be set up to show college football games.

Of course, there will be a Wiffle Ball tournament, too. Registration is $50 per family of six, and 64 teams will compete. Registration is online at pinkribbongirls.org. Sponsorship opportunities also are available and listed on the organization’s website. A friend who had hosted Wiffle Ball contests in his backyard offered to put on the first tournament for Pink Ribbon Girls in 2005, Metzger said. Now the event takes place at Kuliga Park, 6717 Bridgetown Road, and features regulation-size fields that resemble iconic baseball parks:

Wrigley Field in Chicago, Fenway Park in Boston and Great American Ball Park in Cincinnati. There’s another called Legendary Field and an all-pink field for the Home Run Derby. “It’s a big family fundraiser,” she added. “I’ve got a very supportive husband, and we have a committee of 50 to 75 people.” These volunteers have helped stage the event over the previous seven years, so it runs smoothly. The event has raised more than $100,000 to help young breast cancer survivors.
