Councils meet about fire service Springfield Twp. official offers option to NCH, Mt. Healthy

By Jennie Key

MOUNT HEALTHY — Springfield Township officials offered a picture of what contracting for fire service could look like for two cities weighing their options. Springfield Township Administrator Mike Hinnenkamp and Fire Chief Rob Leininger laid out three options for fire coverage if Mount Healthy and North College Hill decided to contract with the township to provide service to their commu-

nities. This was the third joint meeting for the two councils. They met in April to hear from Loveland Symmes Fire Chief Otto Huber, who is leading a private fire company on the East Side as they learned about privatizing fire services. They met again in June to discuss shared fire services where Deer Park-Silverton Joint Fire Dis-

trict Chief Donald Newman gave a presentation about forming a joint fire district. Now the cities are investigating contracting for services to help save money. Both cities want to try to get long-term savings from sharing services but still maintaining the level of service. See FIRE, Page A2


Springfield Township Administrator Mike Hinnenkamp addresses the Mount Healthy City Council, North College Hill City Council and residents who attended the council meeting. Hinnenkamp and Fire Chief Rob Leininger sketched out what potential a contract could cover in providing fire services to the two cities. Both councils are examining how the provision of fire service to their communities could change because of budget issues. JENNIE KEY/THE COMMUNITY PRESS

Churches, schools and businesses are invited to a series of meetings next month to hear about a proposal to establish a joint economic development zone in the township. Townships cannot collect income taxes by Ohio Law. Joint economic development zones are agreements Hinnenkamp with municipalities to charge an income tax on employees working in those zones. The village or city collects the tax, keeps a portion and passes the rest onto the township. The zone would require a vote of the people, and Springfield Township officials want public input and want to be sure everyone affected by the zone will get correct information before a decision to go forward is made. Township administrator Mike Hinnenkamp said the zone will encompass almost the entire township, including schools and churches. “It’s the entire township, but only certain parcels,” he said. The first meeting, set for 6 p.m. Monday, Sept. 30, is set up for schools and churches to hear how the proposal would affect them and their employees. This meeting will be in the Allen Paul Community Room

at the Springfield Township Civic Center, 9150 Winton Road. The second meeting, set for 6 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 1, is set for businesses in the township, will be at the Grove, 9158 Winton Road. A public hearing for the general public on the JEDZ is set for 6 p.m. Monday, Nov. 4, in the Allen Paul Community Room at the civic center, 9150 Winton Road. Hinnenkamp said he expects the board will take action on the proposal following this hearing. Hinnenkamp estimated that 75 to 80 percent of Springfield Township residents would not be affected by a JEDZ if approved. The taxes would be collected from people who work in the township. “We have not decided absolutely to do this,” Hinnenkamp said. “There is no official decision. We are getting ready. We have talked to other communities. We are going through the process and we’ll be ready if the decision is to go ahead.” Cities the township has had discussions with include Fairfield, Mount Healthy and Forest Park. The tax under consideration would be no more than 1.5 percent, with most of the revenue going to the township and a share going to the partner municipality. Hinnenkamp said a rough estimate is that the JEDZ would generate about $1 million annually for the township. He said the township lost about $2.5 million in annual revenue because of cuts and reduced property values. “It’s not going to solve all our problems,” Hinnenkamp said. “But it would help.” Vol. 76 No. 31 © 2013 The Community Press ALL RIGHTS RESERVED



Springfield Twp. open house is Oct. 5 By Jennie Key

Hinnenkamp says offering the service helps his township address a portion of its financial challenges by providing additional income. The township’s presentation was broad-brush. No numbers, no cost no proposals, just information as to how the contract could work. Hinnenkamp laid out three scenarios: » a contract between Mount Healthy and Springfield Township, » » a contract with Springfield Township and Mount Healthy and Colerain Township contracting with North College

week by hosting a department-wide open house with a focus on fire safety at the main fire station at 9150 Winton Road.

The open house is noon to 4 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 5, at the main fire station. This family-friendly event includes fire and

police demonstrations including household fire extinguishing and K-9 abilities. “There will be handson activities for the kids,

Leininger said response times would remain at about five minutes, but his department would offer paramedic service to Mount Healthy, which is not currently offered. He says his department could handle the additional run volume. Mount Healthy Councilwoman Jeanne George asked what would happen to the firefighters currently providing service to the city and said she doesn’t want to see them hung out to dry. “Will they have employment with Springfield

Township?” she asked. “Do you foresee using our employees or would our firemen just be out of a

The process is still just in the discussion phase; neither council is ready to make a decision and the future of fire service in the cities is still under discussion; both councils have said they aren’t trying to make any moves right away, but are just considering their options. Mount Healthy Councilman Robert Parsons said now that the city has heard three different approaches to providing fire service, he thinks its important to talk about the options. Kocher suggested a work session Monday, Nov. 4, a change to accommodate the election. He

our discussions. Our discussions about fire service have been drawn out, but it was information we needed to have. We have other issues that need our attention as well. There are not imminent decisions at this point.”

Dessert event to raise funds, celebrate Gregg Rocca

A dessert evening at Hilltop Primary School will celebrate the life of a Wyoming counselor who died earlier this year, and raise funds for a cause he worked hard to promote. Gregg Rocca was Rocca a counselor for Wyoming City Schools for 18 years. He became involved with Miracles in Action through his former co-

worker, Pat Lehman. Lehman had led a student effort to sell beaded jewelry made by Guatemalan women who work with the non-profit group, and Rocca asked how he could help. The Finneytown High School graduate and athlete was also an avid runner, and as a guidance counselor for Wyoming’s three primary schools, he led the Counselor’s Council, Culture Club and Student of the Month program. “He wasn’t flashy, but he was a gentle soul and the students recognized that in him,” Lehman said. “When they were strug-

gling, they knew they could confide in him. “That was his greatest gift,” she said. “They always knew they could turn to him. “He was a quiet, gentle presence, a shoulder to cry on and an ear to listen. “And he had the most wonderful smile.” Rocca was 52 when he passed, after battling cancer for nearly three years. “Even on those days when he was feeling rotten, he would try to come into work,” Lehman said. “He wanted to be there with the kids. “He would stick it out as much as he could.” Rocca was pivotal in

raising the $50,000 needed to build a library and computer center in the highlands of Guatemala. “I had started the process to build the library, and then Gregg got very sick,” Lehman said. “With his presence and his name, we were able to very quickly reach our goal.”

Both buildings bear Rocca’s name. Miracles in Action,, is focused on educational, vocational and sustainable development projects, offering “a hand up, instead of a handout.” During the Dessert Evening, jewelry and crafts made in Guatemala

will be sold, and information about Miracles in Action will be available. The Sept. 26 event begins at 7 p.m. at Hilltop Primary School, 425 Oliver Road in Wyoming. Donations will be accepted for the Guatemalan effort, and contributions will also benefit the Wyoming school libraries.

McAuley creates new senior lounge

Fabrics, furniture, artwork, a color scheme and love: These were supplies McAuley English teacher and student activities coordinator Lisa Rocklin collected over the summer in order to create a dynamic new space for the seniors. Cheryl Sucher, McAuley president/principal, authorized the rehabbing of an unused room in the rear of the cafeteria that had become a storage area in recent years. Prior to that, it had once served as the faculty dining room. This summer, the room was emptied, polished and transformed into the new Senior Lounge. Rocklin spent part of her summer shopping for items to go in the room, including comfortable couches, gaming rockers, multipurpose end tables and traditional café tables and chairs. The pale pink room has bright pops of color in red, hot pink and black. The lounge became a family

project when Rocklin enlisted her family to help bring the room together. Husband Tony picked up couches, drilled

holes and hemmed curtains; father-in-law Bill worked his Photoshop magic to produce pop art featuring Molly Mo-

hawk, McAuley’s mascot; and sister-in-law Lori Lester unleashed her Cricut machine to make lettering for fabric-cov-

ered canvases. Every purchase also endured the approval or rejection of McAuley alumna Sarah Rocklin ‘12 and current junior Ashley Rocklin. Senior Clare Knecht shared her artistic talents on a large canvas that has become the focal point of the lounge. The oversized cursive text states: “When you love what you have, you have everything you need.” That message, along with quotes by Catherine McAuley, Mother Teresa, Gandhi and others, conveys the overall theme of the room. Love is evident, right down to the IKEA heart pillows on the couch. “The senior lounge is the perfect place for us to come together. I’m so grateful to have teachers who were willing to listen to us as a class and provide such a cool place to study. This room is a great addition to my senior year and is something I will always remember,” senior Ellie Thiemann said.

McAuley senior had city internship

McAuley High School senior Amanda Meiering had an unbelievable life experience this year, as she was one of only 75 summer interns selected to work for the City of Cincinnati. In this paid position, she worked in the safety-related areas at both the Metropolitan Sewer District and Greater Cincinnati Water Works. This 30hour-per week job lasted for eight weeks. During that time, she went on tours of waste and water treatment plants, went to meetings at both those facilities, and became CPR- and First Aid-certified, among other things. She also learned firsthand about city government by touring city hall. One highlight of the

internship was going underground into the city’s old subway tunnel as well as a 60-inch water main. Fridays were a special part of the Meiering internship program. Tommie Lewis led the interns in all sorts of professional development seminars, such as resume building and preparation, interview skills, business etiquette, and cultural diversity. He also talked to them about the importance of financial goals and personal brands. Meiering, of Colerain Township, had two mentors throughout her internship and made

She left the internship with three letters of recommendation for college, where Meiering plans to earn a master’s degree in health care administration. McAuley senior Katie Weierman was also one of the interns selected this summer. She went to the same professional development seminars as Meiering, but her job focus was in the Engineering Administration Building in downtown Cincinnati. Weierman, of White Oak, said she was glad she had this internship opportunity.

Mt. Healthy welcomes new principal By Jennie Key

MOUNT HEALTHY — Sharon Johnson brings a lot of experience with her as she takes the reins at Mount Healthy Junior/Senior High School this year. She’s been in education for 28 years, and spent the last 11 as the principal at Withrow University High School. She retired at the end of the school year, and wasn’t really looking for a job when Marlon Styles resigned. The timing was good.

Great, if you ask Mount Healthy Superintendent Lori Handler. “It was not a good time to be looking for a principal,” she said. “We decided to get an interim and open the search later this year. Johnson, she says is a perfect fit for the job. The board of education gave her a one-year contract that will pay her $101,593.

Roger Bacon football wants back on the map By Tom Skeen

Just ask the Roger Bacon High School football team what leadership and experienced can do for you. With only five seniors on the team and at times nine sophomores on the field in 2012, the Spartans lacked key components necessary to be a successful football team. And it showed in the form of a 0-10 season. The 2013 season is a different story. Coach Kevin Huxel Huxel’s team is off to a 2-1start behind 27 upperclassmen on this season’s roster. “I think leadership has played a big role this year,” Huxel said. “We have more kids stepping up and trying to, not boss everybody around, but to help each other. … They are taking ownership and that makes a big difference.” The biggest mental difference from last season was evident in Bacon’s 28-22 win over Western Hills High School Sept. 13. In a back-and-forth contest, Huxel saw no quit from his team, which is much different than last season. “... Last year we might have dropped our heads a little bit and this year nobody’s dropping their heads,” the coach said. “Everybody is fighting through and getting it done.” Whether it’s blame or criticism, it usually falls on the quarterbacks’ shoulders. While senior Ruggiero “Reggie” DeLuca threw for more than 1,300 yards last season he also tossed 10 interceptions and completed less than 50 percent of his passes, and he heard about it from the outside world. “… It was probably one of the hardest things I’ve ever experienced,” DeLuca said. “There was a lot of criticism from the school, friends of ours and around the city we were regard-

FINNEYTOWN — The record may not be what he wanted and he may have had high expectations for his first season as a head coach, but Finneytown High School girls soccer coach Andrew Glibbery likes the direction his team is heading. The Wildcats are 3-7-1 (03-1 Cincinnati Hills League) but have shown signs of life over the past five weeks after starting the season 1-4-1. “We are showing a lot of progress, which is what I think is important,” Glibbery said. “I don’t think coming in to this that was my mindset. I had higher expectations, but I think the progress we are showing is something I’m happy about.” Two bright spots have come via the play of senior Rebecca Snyder and freshman Trinity Hanson. Snyder has found the back of the net six times, and while Hanson has only one goal through 11

games, it’s what she can do to free up Snyder that is paying dividends. “She creates a lot of space for Rebecca,” Glibbery said, who was an assistant coach at Deer Park last season. “Trinity plays high and Rebecca plays in the space underneath. ... I’d love to see (Snyder) going more North to South once we get going, but she’s a great playmaker so being able to play under Trinity plays to her strong suits.” The Wildcats have struggled in goal so far. Starting sophomore goalie Tess Enderle went down with a knee injury before the start of the season, which forced fellow sophomore Alexis Cruze to step in immediately. Things didn’t go well early, losing to New Richmond 10-1 and Ross 6-0, but Glibbery is seeing progress from his young keeper. “It was a tough game at New Richmond but I think it was a huge learning experiSee SOCCER, Page A7

When asked about the keys to the Spartans’ success over the final seven games, DeLuca mentioned one more huge difference between this season and last. “The biggest thing we can do is play as a team. Last year a lot of guys were focused on how they did personally, but this year we are starting to come together as a team and play as one and I think that is the biggest key.”

Owner makes market a place to meat and greet bringing you the best. Jim’s sister, Sandy Mueller, works with him and Mary every day. Their daughters, a niece, another sister, and Mary’s aunt and uncle pitch in when needed. More goes on there than you may imagine. During Christmas, Jim might work until 5 a.m., go home for a bit and come back to work until 9 p.m. The business not only caters, they also serve, set up and lay the tables and clean up afterwards. Did you know weddings with live music have been held there, catered by them? They may be closed on Mondays, but that day is still busy: preparation for 100 for the Ladies Club, hors d’oeuvres served on the sidewalk, or sit down dinners for 50 that began with prom dinners. The day I visited, Jim had to prepare salmon, beef tenderloin, roast potatoes, asparagus and shrimp for that evening’s fete. The store offers fresh produce, all from local suppliers such as Jim Gieringer, Shaw’s in Milford and Jack Theis. Only prime beef is sold (the best grade out there) and even Jim’s ground beef is prime. He says he may be the only one who offers it. Jim buys the whole animal and has his meat paper wrapped rather than in plastic like in the stores. That way he knows it is fresh. All meat is

The idea for grilling outside came about in the late 1980s when he and Mary visited Chicago. Vendors had their wares in wheelbarrows on the sidewalk in front of their stores. Obviously that wouldn’t work with a side of beef, so Jim decided to fire up the old “barbie” and grill in front of his store whenever there was a festival. Now there is grillin’ and chillin’ all year round.

Are we so impotent that we can not defend legitimate consulates after being warned of imminent attacks? I was immediately caused to reflect on a very misinterpreted book I read some time ago. Some people pass the writing off as that of an uninformed or perhaps crazy philosopher. Serious reflection on his writing has caused me to disagree with his critics. Let’s begin with the examination of a quote. “Since love and fear can hardly exist together, if we must choose between them it is far safer to be feared than loved.” Most will recognize that I am quoting Niccolo Machiavelli. This quote bears serious thought into its meaning. Love and fear are not polar opposites. How many of us feared our parents when we were doing something of which they disapproved? That did not change the fact that we loved our parents. The same holds true for some of our teachers, employers or coaches. The fear of someone may actually


lead to respect and ultimately to love. Respect is a combination of both. We should agree that someone we respect is a valuable person in our

lives. This essay is about the condition of our national respect around the world. Had we re-enforced our embassy in Benghazi it is possible the attack would not have happened. Or, a strong defense may have defeated it. Either way, the fear of our strong response would likely prevent future embarrassments. Needless to say, our show of weakness in the recent closing of our embassies might lead to attacks by rogue regimes. While the news is that some of the embassies will reopen, it is difficult to expect that our sworn enemies are not carefully planning future embarrassments to our leadership. Leadership is supposed to call for respect. That, being said, we should evaluate the appointed leadership of our country. This requires another quote from Machiavelli.

Major League Baseball player and manager Leo Durocher said that nice guys finish last, but he never met Jim Gelhausen, owner of Wyoming Meat Market. Jim is a super guy with an A-number one family. He and wife, Mary, live in Springfield Township with their horses and Evelyn two daughters. Perkins The youngest is COMMUNITY a senior at PRESS COLUMNIST McAuley High School, and her sister is a junior at UC. Jim was born in Elmwood Place, but moved to Wyoming when he was just a tyke. He worked after school at the same 513 Wyoming Ave. location that he now owns, and shared the history of the business with me. George Haller built the building in 1934. The first structure on that side of the street, it was a corner grocery and meat store. Roger Johnson had a meat shop a few doors up, moved into the 513 address in 1969 and made it a meat market. Jim worked with Johnson from 1969-1979, first after school for about three years, and then full time when he graduated from Roger Bacon High School. Along with some afterschool help, the business is a family affair dedicated to


“The first method for estimating the intelligence of a ruler is to look at the men he has around him.” While this will seem disrespectful, it is not meant to be hateful. The title of president is to be respected. The appointments a president makes determine his legacy. In the book “Team of Rivals,” the author, Doris Kearns Goodwin, covers in depth the appointments President Lincoln made to his cabinet. Some were his fiercest political rivals. These differences of opinion led to decisions that created one of the best presidencies of our history. President Obama simply appointed like minded cronies. The results are clear. We have lost international respect, our economy is floundering and recovery of both will be a long-term struggle. Respect will come only when earned. As the huge deficits compound our fiscal problems, recovery will either be a strict austerity or a drastic devaluation of the dollar. Either way, the most sorrowful victims will be the low and middle end folks who can least afford this hardship. Edward Levy is a resident of Montgomery and a former college instructor.

Using the products they stock, the Gelhausens make their own salads, barbeque, soup and sandwiches. Fresh fish comes in on Fridays. Jim learned meat cutting on the job from three masters of the trade, has all his fingers, never even had a stitch and provides a great service. Nice guys can finish first.

CH@TROOM Sept. 18 question If negotiations fail to secure Syria’s chemical weapons should the U.S. conduct military strikes against Syria? Why or why not?

“If negotiations break down in Syria some sort of involvement needs to be done. But it should be done by the UN not strictly the U.S. This was one of the mistakes made in the second involvement in Iraq. Hopefully the U.S. learned from that move. To this day I am not sure what the UN does accomplish. Go Figure!” T.D.T.

“No. We are not the keepers of the world. The only situation to warrant that would be an attack on the U.S. or Israel, and even then it should be a targeted thing, not years of your troops on foreign soil. “This seems to me to be a political move to make the president look like a strong leader. Why haven't he been outraged when 140,000 people were killed in Syria by artilliary? Why hasn't the chemical weapons been addressed before now? Why didn't we take action when our people were murdered in Benghazi? Why have we allowed Iran to have the capabilities to make a nucular bomb? Why are we giving billions of dollars to countries like Pakistan. What about Africa? “We need to be an isolated country for a few years and get our own house in order ... get people back to work, make welfare a "job" that has to be repaid with

“Attacking the Syrian government would be helping Al Qaeda gain a foothold. Al Qaeda is our enemy, it's who we're fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan. “Last time I checked providing aid to the enemy was called treason. Seems pretty simple to me!” J.S.K.

“Absolutely not. We are in enough useless wars and we don't need any more. “When will we realize that we can't police the world. There are enough problems at home that we can work on and first and foremost should be finding a good candidate to replace the joke of a president we have in there right now.”

Warm up with dinner rolls, pot pie pe and I want you to try it, too.

I’ve told you before how this column “connects” all of us. There’s not a week that goes by that I don’t hear from someone telling me about a new recipe they’ve tried, or a treasured one they want to share. It’s all about food, family and friends. Rita Laurie Heikenfeld BredenRITA’S KITCHEN foerder’s story about her homemade lasagna is one of those priceless gems. After she read my recipe for easy lasagna using no-cook lasagna noodles, she told me it’s not so bad to use the no-cook noodles, but “They may be hard to find or more costly than the mundane ones. If so, I can do much better.” Laurie sent me her recipe for her family’s favorite, which she has been making for 25-plus years using any kind of lasagna noodle right out of the box. She’s never had a problem with using them and her lasagna turns out perfect, every time. “Great for a large gathering and this may well be the perfect lasagna recipe. It’s a legend in our family”, she said. Unfortunately, the recipe is too long to share here so I’ll put it on my blog. But don’t let that hold you back. I can’t wait to try Laurie’s reci-

Dairy-free, cholesterol-free, low-fat dinner rolls Don’t be squeamish about the ingredients here. Powdered creamer is used by more than a few bakers to achieve a nice-tasting, dairy-free dinner roll. Check out the photo of the batch I made. They taste as good as they look. The diabetic exchange is 11/2 starch, 1/2 fat for each roll. You can do this by hand or machine. 1 tablespoon rapid-rise yeast plus a couple pinches sugar (don’t use regular active yeast) 21⁄4 cups warm water (110-115 degrees) 1 ⁄3 cup sugar 1 ⁄3 shortening 1 ⁄4 cup powdered non-dairy creamer 21⁄4 teaspoons salt 5-6 cups bread flour

to coat top. Cover and let rise until doubled, about one hour. Punch down and turn out onto lightly floured surface; divide into 18 to 24 pieces. Shape each piece into a roll. Place two inches apart on sprayed baking sheets. Cover and let rise until doubled, 30-45 minutes. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Dissolve yeast and pinches of sugar in warm water. In a mixing bowl, add sugar, shortening, creamer, salt and 5 cups flour. Add yeast and mix well on low speed. Turn to medium and beat until smooth. Add more flour if necessary to make a soft, but sticky dough. Either knead it for 6-8 minutes by machine or by hand. If doing by hand, turn out on floured surface. Knead until smooth, like a baby’s bottom. Place in bowl coated with cooking spray, turning once

⁄2 cup (3 oz.) diced cooked chicken, cut 1/2- to 3/4-inch chunks 3 ⁄4 cup sauce 1 oz. to 2 oz. pastry, to cover pie 1

Tips from readers’ kitchens

Key lime cake glaze: Dot, an Erlanger reader, made the yummy key lime cake published, but said the glaze was runny and too intensely flavored for her palate. Next time she’ll use two cups powdered sugar and start with two tablespoons lime juice and two tablespoons water and go from there.

Cook frozen peas and carrots and drain. Put chicken into small casserole and add veggies. Pour sauce over and bake at 350 degrees until bubbly. Serve with pastry top over casserole dish. (I’m assuming you bake the pastry separate). Makes one pie.

Blue Ash company sued by state A company I reported on earlier this year has been sued by the state of Ohio for, among other things, taking advantage of elderly and low-income people. Queen City Script Care, of Blue Ash, was to provide discounted prescription medication to those in need, but is being accused of making unauthorized withdrawals from consumer’s bank accounts and failing to provide refunds. Back in February, I reported on the complaints I received from many of the company’s customers. People like

Krystal Beckelhimer, of Georgetown, who said, “The company worked good for Howard about two Ain months. I HEY HOWARD! got my medicine, paid $30, and then all of a sudden I wasn’t getting any medicine and he basically said, “’Well, it’s on the way.’” Beckelhimer had complained to company owner Tom Fenske, but says she was still charged $30

monthly even though she wasn’t getting her medicine. Then, she says, Queen City Script Care took multiple charges out of her bank account in the same month. Ruth Hill of Versailles also had multiple payments taken from her bank account. “The problem started when there were four withdrawals in May,” she says. Her husband, Clarence, was paying the company $40 a month and also had multiple withdrawals from his account in one month. Missing medicine and multiple withdrawals

Tom Fenske wouldn’t do an interview with me, but told me all money withdrawn by mistake was being refunded. However, the Ohio Attorney General’s office says it has 20 unresolved complaints against the business totaling $7,141.18. In the lawsuit, the business and owners Thomas Fenske and Theresa Fenske are charged with multiple violations of the Ohio Consumer Sales Practices Act. The suit seeks restitution for consumers, injunctive relief, civil penalties, and other costs. Attorney General Mike DeWine says other consumers have been affected and he wants those who have been treated unfairly to file a

were also big problems for Betty Goodman of Georgetown, who complained to Fenske. “One month he took out $30 from my checking account six times. I went to the bank three times to stop the payments,” she said. Goodman is also upset because they kept taking money for medicine for her husband Larry – months after he died. “I kept calling the office and saying, ‘Why are you taking money for Larry? He’s dead, he’s not getting no medicine.’” Many consumers said they only way they stopped those payments was to close their bank account. Queen City Script Care President

complaint with his office at 800-282-0515. DeWine says, “With the upcoming heath care changes, we will continue to watch for businesses that make misleading claims about health care services.” There really is a program to help patients get free or discounted medications. It is run by the pharmaceutical companies and eligible consumers can apply for patient assistance for free. Many nonprofits offer help for no charge.

Celebrate German Heritage in October

LifeSpring Church fills crates for classrooms

The LifeSpring Christian Church is a multi-site church with sites in North College Hill (Clovernook), Westwood and Harrison. One of the church’s biggest desires is to connect with local schools and organizations to help assist with community impact. This year each site was charged with finding the best way to connect with local schools to assist with the beginning of the school year. This year the Westwood and Harrison sites decided to support a backpack drive for its locations. For the Clovernook location the need was just a tad bit different. “When I spoke with Sheri Johnson, principal of North College Hill Elementary, it became evident that their real need would be to help in the

class room this year,” site minister Tim Dunn said. “That’s when we adopted an in-house campaign called ‘Crates for the Classroom.’ We decided that in order to curb the expense that many teachers are taking out of their pocket each year to cover supplies, we would provide a grade specific crate full of supplies for each teacher. Along with that crate will be a small gift bag with goodies, including a gift card to a local store, and some sweets. Our hope is to help bless the teacher and let them know that we are behind them as they begin their year and to let them know they are not alone.” The project was coordinated by LifeSpring’s event coordinator Karen Mahan, who spent hours traveling all over the area getting the “best deals” to

stretch the near $4,000 that was raised for every teacher. Mahan saved so much money by doing this that the church was able to extend their gift to teachers who don’t have a classroom, assistants, janitors, and office staff. “Karen did a tremendous job. When we talked about the campaign we decided that we wanted to share some love with the teachers who are impacting our kids in the community. We felt like this was the best way to do that,” Dunn said. “The real heroes are the congregation members that helped to provide the financial resources as well as packed and prepped the supplies. It just makes you smile seeing hard work and sacrifice going to such deserving folks like the NCH Elementary teachers.”

Act One unique opportunity to become civically active

The League of Women Voters of the Cincinnati Area and the Woman’s City Club of Greater Cincinnati announce Act One, a joint membership initiative for young people aged 18-35. “We are excited to be doing Act One together because our organizations collectively have nearly 200 years of experience in civic engagement in Cincinnati,” said Susan Noonan, president of Woman’s City Club. “We welcome the ideas and energy of younger members, and we want the opportunity to invest in them.”

Act One is accepting applications until Sept. 30 from women and men aged 18-35 who are interested in joining both organizations for one year at no cost. The program will feature mentoring, opportunities for civic engagement and tailored networking events during the year of the program. This inaugural program will run for approximately 12 months starting October 2013. “The strength of both of our both organizations is the coming together of citizens to make a positive change in our community,” said Helen

Rhoad, co-president of the LWVCA. “We want citizens of all ages to feel their voices can be heard. Those who are selected for this program will be given an great education in the civic engagement with opportunities to learn and network.” Those interested can apply by emailing a response to this question in 200-300 words to “In what ways are you interested in securing a more just and livable community? How would you like to influence public policy?”
