Flamm is good collaborator

Wins environmental award for her work By Monica Boylson

Springfield Township Projects, Events and Communications Coordinator Kimberlee Flamm was recently awarded the Hamilton County Soil and Water Conservation District’s Outstanding Environmental Awareness Collaborator of the Year. Public relations specialist for he district Annette Meagher

said Flamm was chosen because she went “above and beyond to assist the district in spreading the environmental protection and conservation message.” Flamm worked with Springfield Township service director John Musselman on a program to label storm drains with no-dumping stickers to keep pollutants such as trash, oil and other garbage out of the Mill Creek watershed and local streams. “Labeling the drains is important because in Springfield Township there are many neighborhoods with creeks and streams that could be affected,”

Flamm said. She was also recognized for her collaborative effort with district educational assistant Nikki Marengo to design classes for children to learn about soil and water conservation. “We taught 90 kids in the community all about the importance of water and soil conservation through fun interactive pro-

The city of North College Hill is looking to trade property with the North College Hill City School District. The swap would allow the city to exchange its property adjacent to North College Hill Elementary School, which houses the former city pool, with a district-owned lot that is next to the city center. “We’re still in the preliminary stages,” City Council Pro Tem President Maureen Mason said. An ordinance to approve the exchange and was on the agenda for the Sept. 17 council meeting. The plan will be discussed furSee PROPERTY, Page A2

In a classroom of first-graders at North College Hill Elementary School, Colin Thornton draws a lion on the board. “That doesn’t look like a lion,” one student speaks out. With a smile on his face, he shrugs it off and asks the students why it’s important to be respectful at the zoo. A sea of hands shoot into the air, each student eager to deliver their answers.

For Lisa Poli’s class, time with Thornton is a weekly event. The parent volunteer is teaching character education through Winners Walk Tall – a nonprofit organization that provides character-building lesson plans for people to implement in schools. “The school’s touchstone is, ‘You have the power to do the right thing,’ and this is a way to unify that effort,” he said. Thornton isn’t the only person participating in the program. Elementary school volun-

We wanted to create a partnership between the parents and the teachers. The superintendent created a core committee of parents and teachers to talk about what we could do to improve the school,” he

Forest Park Police taking back prescription drugs Part of national program Sept. 29 Forest Park is participating in the National Prescription Drug take-back day The Drug Enforcement Administration and government, community, public health and law enforce-

ment partners have announced a nationwide prescription drug “Take-Back” initiative that seeks to prevent increased pill abuse and theft. The DEA will be collecting potentially dangerous expired, unused, and unwanted prescription and over-the-counter

drugs for destruction at sites nationwide on from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 29th. The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked. In Forest Park, the collection site will be the Forest Park Police Department, 1201 West Kemper Road. Wright Gwyn, program

manager of the Forest Park Environmental Awareness Program is again partnering with the Forest Park Police Department to offer the program to the Greater Forest Park community. Gwyn said last spring 55 city residents brought more than 200 pounds of unwanted drugs that were

eventually incinerated at designated burn sites. If residents can not participate in this program but have prescription and/ or over-the-counter drugs that need to dispose of properly, the environmental awareness program director encourages residents to visit the website for permanent collection

sites and locations that are open year round at For information about this program and its many benefits, contact the Forest Park Environmental Awareness Program at 513-595-5263 or email

Cameras help NCH police watch over Veterans Park By Monica Boylson

The North College Hill Police Department has a new way to watch Veterans Park on Betts Avenue. Four cameras are running live feeds from the park to the police station and recording 24 hours a day. The video will be monitored by the police department and can be used as evidence should any crime occur. The camera installation is part of a department initiative to increase security throughout the city. Police Chief Gary Faust is calling it phase one. He said the second phase will include surveillance at various businesses in North College Hill and there are plans to install cameras

near known crime areas. “Veterans Park has the most activity. This is one of the most cost efficient ways of reducing crimes,” Faust said. The chief said that the system also gives officers the ability to monitor the feed on a computer, tablet or smart phone. “An officer could park a couple of blocks away and be able to watch the park from their device,” he said. “We’re hoping the park can be used as how it was intended. We want to preserve the park and present a safe environment for our community.” North College Hill Sgt. John Ferguson, who is in charge of special projects for the department spearheaded, the project as a way to combat fewer offi-

cers on staff. “ We’re trying to maintain equilibrium between our increased demand for service and fewer staff,” he said. Already Ferguson said there has been decreased activity in the park. In addition to the cameras, signs have been placed along the perimeter of the park alerting patrons that the park is being monitored at all hours. “If I never have to look at the video of this camera because it has served its purpose, it has paid for itself,” he said. Business owners who want to participate in the second phase of the project should contact the department at 521-7171. Cameras can be purchased for $1,000 .

Lackey twins spell double trouble Monsters of Defense lead team By Tom Skeen

MOUNT HEALTHY — In Mount Healthy, the term “Lackey” doesn’t mean servant or follower. It means double trouble for Fighting Owl football opponents. Twin brothers Justin and Jordan Lackey have teamed up to help the Mount Healthy football team to a 5-0 start and a topthree ranking in The Enquirer Divisions II-VI area coaches’ poll. While they compete on the same team on Friday nights, when they get home it’s a different story. “Me and my brother like competition,” Justin said. “We don’t like losing at all. We get home, play Madden (video game) and we get real mad when we lose. We take it just as serious as we do football.” Jordan made sure to point out who won the video game battle, at least for a day. “(The games are) competi-

tive,” he said. “I beat him twice (Sept. 19) with the Bengals. I made him quit.” While he may have had the upper hand on that day, the Lackeys never quit on the football field. Coach Arvie Crouch said they have the intangibles you can’t coach, like a high motor and heart. The 5-foot-9-inch juniors have combined for 4.5 sacks (Justin has 2.5), three forced fumbles and two fumble recov-

eries. “We just play hard and sometimes try to out-do each other,” Jordan said. “We just make sure we do each other’s job.” Jordan, who lines up at outside linebacker, and Justin, who is a defensive end, motivate their defense. While the whole team was exhausted from running sprints at practice, Justin walked around telling everybody he was ready for more. “We’ve been practicing real

hard,” Justin said. “Since two-adays and since the season started, we are working hard and have a lot to prove... We don’t want to rely on points this year. We want to rely on our record and go to the playoffs and maybe have home-field advantage.” At the same practice , Justin hit the quarterback in an 11-on-11 drill so hard it took him a few minutes to get up. And it was just practice. “It’s just motivation and working to play better to be the best you can be for our team,” Jordan said about what drives the two. “We want to go 10-0 but can only take it one game at a time.” Justin gave his defense the nickname “Monsters of Defense.” Even with that nickname and the defense giving up just 8.25 points per game, the brothers will never be satisfied with how their unit plays. “The defense has to pick it up,” Justin said. “The offense is doing great right now. They have a whole lot of weapons and we all have a lot of weapons. We have enough elements that can make it to state probably, but we are just going week by week.”

Making strides


Mohawks improved but still looking for wins over conference elite By Nick Dudukovich

McAuley's Libbi Giuliano, left, and Jordyn Thiery dig for the ball against Ursuline during the Sept. 18 match at Ursuline Academy.

COLLEGE HILL — Gene Toms is only in his third season at the helm of the McAuley volleyball program, but he knows his team has taken a big step in the right direction. The Mohawks already own three GGCL Scarlet wins, after securing just two victories last season. “We’ve come into the season with the highest expectations,” Toms said. And while Toms is pleased with his team’s start, the Mohawks still have some hurdles to clear. On Sept. 16, the Mohawks played Ursuline in a clash between two of the city’s top-ranked teams. Ursuline entered the contest ranked No. 4 in the Enquirer’s city poll, while McAuley was fifth. But despite the momentum the Mo-

hawks carried into the match, Ursuline eliminated the Mohawks in four games. Two days later, McAuley fell 3-0 to Mount Notre Dame — the No. 1-ranked team in the state. “Those are the opportunities to climb in those rankings,” Toms said. “…It’s the Ursulines and (Mount Notre Dames) and Lakotas…those are the teams we need to

beat to move ahead.” As McAuley bunkers down for the second half of the season, the squad should continue to receive stellar efforts from several players along the way. At hitter, Jordyn Thiery and Taylor Bove have been consistent when it comes to cashing in points. “We’re going to go as far as they are able to take us,” Toms said. “They’re a major part of our offense.” Bove is fifth in the Scarlet with 108 kills (through Sept. 19), while Thiery is right behind her with 99.

St. X, Tensing bomb Crusaders By Tom Skeen

After a pair of last-minute losses the last two weeks, St. Xavier came out firing and scored on five of its seven first-half possessions en route to a 49-21 victory over previously unbeaten Moeller. Junior quarterback Nick Tensing tossed for 248 yards and four touchdowns, including 208 in the first half and all four scores. Senior wide out Kevin Milligan caught nine balls for 139 yards and two scores, while running back C.J. Hilliard rushed for 131 yards and a score on 17 carries. On defense, seniors Ryan Berning and Joe Barrett each recorded 13 tackles, while junior Nick Carovillano had three tackles for loss and a sack. The Crusaders entered the game ranked No. 1 in the Enquirer Division I area coaches’ poll, No. 2 in the AP state poll and No. 9 nationally by USA Today. After averaging 481.5 yards per game and 43.3 points through the first four games, the Bombers held the Crusaders to 345 yards of offense. The Bomber offense got rolling early with Tensing hooking up with Milligan for an 80-yard touchdown on the first play of the game. It was 14-0 three plays later when Ryan Frey intercepted a Spencer Iacovone pass and returned it for a 32 yards for a score. The Bombers will look to move to 4-2 when the travel to Elder Sept. 28.

Junior quarterback/ wide receiver Tyree Elliott was a dual threat for Mount Healthy, which improves to 5-0. Elliott had six carries for 99 yards and three scores and completed his only pass for a touchdown. Mount Healthy running back Leon Currie-Davis also had nine rushes for 107 yards. Next game: The Owls hosts Ross Sept. 28.

Grippa solidifies legacy MONFORT HEIGHTS —

After 10 seasons at the helm of the La Salle High School football program, Lancers’ head coach Tom Grippa is the school’s alltime wins leader. Grippa earned his 58th victory during the Lancers’ 70-22 win against Northwest (Ind.) Sept. 14. The veteran coach said he was proud of the accomplishment, but quickly pointed out that he wouldn’t be in this position without the help of the people around him. “My coaches and players have to get credit for this, not just me,” he said. “I’m real proud of what we built here at La Salle High School and I think it’s been the best 10 years in La Salle’s football history.” Grippa was an assistant with the Lancers from 1980-1987. He returned in 2003 as head coach. He said all of his teams have been special and unique, but said the 2010 squad stands out because that version of the Lancers

“was the best team in La Salle football history.” That squad went 9-1 during the regular season, en route to the Greater Catholic League South championship. Grippa added that he’s also fond of the 2005 squad, which beat Moeller and Elder en route to an 8-2 record. Back in the saddle: The Lancers faced some adversity with quarterback Brad Burkhart missing the first two games because of injury.

The duo benefits from the setting of Courtney Gildan, who is third in the league with 183 assists. Defensively, Alexis Bierbaum and Katie Sterwerf provide a competitive advantage because of their ability to alter the other team’s shot. Both

guson helped fill the void at halfback and is making the most of his touches. He carried the ball four times for 57 yards in week three against Princeton, and followed up 73 yards in five carries against Northwest in week four. “He’s one of the best sophomore football players in the whole city,” Grippa said. “The sky is the limit for what he can accomplish if he commits himself and buys in…” Bend, don’t break: “Make them snap it one more time.” That’s the mantra the Lancers’ defense lives by. Grippa said the unit may give up a lot of yards, but at the same time, the Lancers can came up with a turnover in the blink of an eye. Entering week five, the Lancers allowed 376 yards per game — a number not helped by the 466 yards Lakota West racked up in week one. But at the same time, La Salle intercepted opposing offenses eight times this year, while the defense recovered five fumbles.


players have combined for 59 blocks. “In this league, where you play each team that’s got a girl going, or a recruit going to play Division I college…and playing so high above the net…I think that’s probably one of our biggest strengths this year,” Toms said. “To be able to slow some of those girls down…it’s winning us points at the net.”

Burkhart returned against Princeton Sept. 7, and has played solidly. In his first two starts, He was 27-of-46 for 443 yards and five touchdowns against one interception. Grippa likes how the senior’s played but knows Burkart is not all the way back. “He’s played pretty good…He’s still a little rusty and he’s still leaving some plays on the field…but he’s making great decisions,” he said. “I’m really proud of how he’s developed as a quarterback. He keeps getting better and improving and we’re kind of excited about what our team can do.” In the backfield: Lancers’ halfback Morgan Wilcox got off to a nice start this season before going down with an ankle injury. He rushed for 230 yards and two scores during the first two weeks of the season. Grippa said the team will make sure Wilcox is close to 100 percent before he’s put back into action. “We need him back. No doubt about it,” he said. Sophomore Kevin Fer-

I am amazed and irritated with the way taxpayers’ money is spent by the schools. Reading the Community Press I read about how the budget is stressed and the school cut out busing. Now the school wants to build not just one building but two. I am a common-sense person so I will put in laymen terms. You don’t go out and build a new house when you can’t even afford to put gas in your car. I have three houses in this school district that I pay property taxes on. I understand that does not pay for all the bills for the school, but I do not receive any benefit from the school. That is busing. I have a daughter that goes to Scarlet Oaks, that I drive to the high school where she catches a bus to Scarlet Oaks. I have another daughter that goes to Roger Bacon. Furthermore (the superintendent) talked about contracting out jobs for the school. The ones she referred to were those that clean the buildings, drive the school buses and the people that are the real people that make things happen. Did you cut your salary Miss Superintendent?

TedX works toward cultural understanding The greatest benefit for me to working with groups like TEDxCincinnati is the inspiration that is passed along by people who are truly passionate about affecting change. For the past several weeks I’ve been part of the TEDxCincinnati leadership team, working to bring people together for an Oct. 4 “Every Lisa Desatnik COMMUNITY PRESS Citizen a Diplomat.” GUEST COLUMNIST Sponsored by Cincinnati USA Sister Cities and Sister Cities International, TEDxCincinnati will bring thought provoking ideas to life at the National Undergound Railroad Freedom Center with speakers and performers. They’ll share personal stories and talk about the power within each of us to bridge cultural understanding and cooperation, and to build and strengthen relationships

in our own communities, our country and around the world. Our ultimate goal? We want to spark energy, conversation and action. We want to build on Greater Cincinnati’s momentum that we’ve already demonstrated this summer of embracing diverse cultures with openness and appreciation. When Bob Herring, principal of Nativity School in Pleasant Ridge, told me he believes that in order to move forward, we must begin with the kids in elementary school I could hear his conviction in his voice. He has facilitated 42 student exchanges with 24 school in 18 countries since joining the School in 1984; and the School has been involved with the international ‘Friendship Project’ much longer. Right now actually his school is hosting students from Hungary. “If we could bring the young people of the world together, they could form those friendships and relationships that would lead to a future we all want.

learn that stereotypes that they held about other nations and cultures, other traditions and languages were really not true,” he had told the St. An-


thony Messenger. I learned this firsthand when, as an 11-year-old, I was involved with Children’s International Summer Village. It really didn’t seem to matter when I didn’t use the same words to communicate with others from countries I had only seen on a map. The language of smiles and laughter, tears and hugs, hopes and dreams…those are universal. When people of different cultures, races, religions, ages, and socio-economic backgrounds come together with openness and cooperation it is a beautiful thing. When all of us not just accept but appreciate how diversity strengthens us and strengthens our community, then we all benefit. I invite you to join us. It is going to be a powerful night.

Fall is time to use oven Go hiking

Sometimes I’ll use just breasts and thighs. the high heat gives the chicken an incredibly crisp skin. This is one of those “hurry home” meals. Freshly ground pepper makes this a standout dish. If you don’t have a peppermill, put it on your wish list. Makes all the difference in the world, and pepper has lots of antioxidants. Ditto for the oregano, one of the most healing herbs on the planet.

Photos explored at Passages New Visions will be exhibited at Passages Gallery, 1731 Goodman Avenue, North College Hill, from Oct. 1 through Nov. 1. This exhibition suggests not only achievements but possibilities, and is planned to coincide with FotoFocus collaborative events in nearly 70 museums and galleries throughout the Cincinnati region. How artists use photography to break new ground is the theme of this exhibition. Artists are responding to new technologies with innovative treatments that mix media and defy traditional definitions about what

constitutes a photograph. The selected artists explore the possibilities of the medium experimenting with the traditional lens and using digital imagery and printing. New Visions explores a range of what is currently being achieved by established artists with teaching and extensive exhibition credentials and emerging artists at the beginning of their visual art careers. All are based in the Cincinnati region but their art is inspired by experiences throughout the world. Ten artists have been invited to show their explorations and new visions in recent work.

Viewers will see great variety in subject matter, scale, texture, design, color and light. Tracy Chappelow captures abstract forms in nature. Diana Duncan Holmes shows large, colorful abstractions on aluminum, painterly in feeling and far from traditional photographic expectations. Other photographers incldue Nancy Koehler, Michael McHenry, Heather Onutz, Joel Quimby, Jared Southard, Sybilka Storie and Jon Yamashiro. Gallery hours are Monday-Friday 10 a.m.-4 p.m. For information, call 513-931-8181.

Check energy usage via Smart Meter

Power companies around the country are hearing from consumers concerned about new Smart Meters being put on homes. They transmit your home’s electric usage, and some fear the meters emit potentially harmful radiation. Studies show that’s not the case, but now the some people are questioning the studies. Mike Mannarino, of Anderson Township, isn’t concerned about that, he’s troubled about possible spying. “It’s a surveillance device essentially because they can tell what actually takes place inside the home,” he said. The Smart Meters do record the electricity usage in your home every few seconds and transmit the information to a terminal. Mannarino said that information can be used to determine whether you’re using enough energy-efficient devices in your home. “It’s gradually intru-

the usage all the time. There’s a lot of fallacy out there on the Internet,” Thelen said. She said there is no large room where someone is monitoring the usage in each house. Instead, she said, the daily readings just go into big computer servers. Thelen said Duke is 75 percent complete in modernizing its grid with these digital meters. Since these meters transmit the usage, she said the company figures there will be far fewer estimated bills. When the upgrade is complete at the end of next year Duke can re-route electricity if there’s a power outage in an area. In addition, there could be “time of use pricing.” This allows customers to save money by, for instance, doing their wash at night when electric rates are reduced. In the meantime, those with these Smart Meters can go online to Duke’s website and check their usage. The meters capture energy usage daily and that’s available to customers the next day. Duke said this can help customers make wiser energy decisions and avoid billing surprises at the end of the month.

sive: A little bit today. I think there’ll be more tomorrow and, frankly, I don’t Howard feel they Ain need that HEY HOWARD! information,” Mannarino said. But Duke Energy spokeswoman Sally Thelen refutes this. “This is completely not true. I can tell you, Howard, the only thing we’re getting from these meters is how much electricity you’re using. We don’t know what appliances are being used. We don’t know anything specific at all,” Thelen said. Nevertheless, Mannarino said, “If they determine you’re not doing the things they think you should, I see in the future where they could charge you a higher rate.” “There is no way that somebody’s monitoring

Charles ‘Mac’ McNulty, 91, was teacher, coach FINNEYTOWN

Charles “Mac” McNulty worked for 29 years in the Finneytown schools, where he was a teacher, coach and athletic director, and where the high school stadium is named for him. His students and family remember him for his kind, soft-spoken ways. His first teaching assignment was with seventh- and eighth-graders in 1947. His wife, Jimmie, said that those students respected and loved their teacher so much that 60 years later they were still getting together for an annual lun-

cheon with him. This year he couldn’t attend, but 10 of the students visited him in McNulty the nursing home. He died Sept. 10 at Maple Knoll Village in Springdale. The Finneytown resident was 91. Mr. McNulty was born in 1920 to Jesse and Kate McNulty and grew up on a farm in Adams County. He graduated from Manchester High School and was

named outstanding athlete in 1940. He earned a bachelor’s degree in education at Rio Grande College, where he played baseball, football and basketball. He was inducted into its Hall of Fame in 1977. He was commissioned as a Lieutenant JG in the Naval Air Corp and served as a navigator on B-24 bombers from 1942 to 1946. He mostly worked on night patrol operations, searching for German submarines in the Mediterranean, the English Channel just before D-Day and in the Atlantic near the Azores.

“He enjoyed his service,” his wife said. “He was a rural farmboy, and it opened up the world to him. He always remained very, very patriotic.” After returning home, Mr. McNulty earned a second bachelor’s degree at the University of Cincinnati. He began teaching at Finneytown Elementary School. That’s where he met his wife, who was a kindergarten teacher. They were married in 1954. He moved to Finneytown High School when it opened in 1958. His wife said he was respected for

his kindness and his peaceful nature. “He was the most eventempered person I ever met,” she said. “He had very high standards, and students adhered to them because of their respect for him.” The couple had four sons, who all attended Finneytown. “There could not have been a better role model to our four sons, who are all just like him,” said his wife. He became athletic director at the high school, where he oversaw the building of the athletic facilities. When the stadium

was remodeled in 1995, it was renamed the Charles “Mac” McNulty Stadium. He was inducted into the Finneytown Hall of Fame in 2000. In addition to his wife, survivors include four sons, Dennis, Robin, Jon and Tom; two brothers, Jesse and Bill; two sisters, Nellie Gilkison and Grace Gaffin ; eight grandchildren; and two great-grandchildren. Memorials: Northminster Presbyterian Church or Hospice of Cincinnati. Anderson Funeral Homes handled the arrangements.

Xavier first to take veterans on pilgrimage Nate Davis, director of veterans affairs at Xavier University, accompanied five local veterans, three of whom are Xavier students, on a spiritual journey to Assisi and Rome. They left the U.S. Aug. 13 and returned Aug. 21. Local military personnel who took the trip were Paula Alberto of Ft. Wright, KY, Marylu Gilbert of Ft. Thomas, KY, and three Xavier students from Cincinnati: Malachi Black (45215), Matthew Call (45241), and Janie Summers (45237). All were accompanied by Davis, also of Cincinnati (45227). The pilgrimage is part of a new, veterans-only theology course developed through collaboration among Sister Rosie Miller, professor of theology, Davis and pilgrimage staff in Italy. Miller suggested the pilgrimage be-

cause she is familiar with issues such as PTSD. Xavier is the first Jesuit institution of higher learning to develop a veterans-only theology course, and the first Jesuit institution to send a group of veterans on a pilgrimage. This allows Xavier to reinforce its mission to educate the whole person and to demonstrate its care for those who have made the ultimate sacrifices. “Many men and women are returning home after having served in conflicted areas of the world, says Fr. John Cella, OFM, director of Franciscan Pilgrimage Programs. “Now they face the challenge of rebuilding their lives and families. We think that the journeys of St. Francis and St. Clare through their own life threatening experiences may help members of the military and

their loved ones in trying to make sense out of all the good and bad that they have witnessed and felt while in the military.” Past participant Major Greg Masiello agrees. “That St. Francis traveled to the Middle East to broker peace for the Crusades underscores these parallels if not highlights the paradox. Many Christians and Muslims are still at odds with each other.” “St. Ignatius and St. Francis had different backgrounds – one was highly educated, the other was not – and different approaches – one was more about living, the other about thinking – but still both were soldiers and suffered through many of the same things soldiers face today when they return from battle,” Davis said. “Both found that faith can bring you through.”

Morgan Alloway was a wife, a mother of two girls and a friend to many. She died on Oct. 1, 2010, after a two-year battle with stage four lung cancer. On Saturday, Oct. 6, her memory will be honored at the second annual Free to Breathe Cincinnati Stroud Lung Cancer 5K Run/Walk and Memorial Mile. Coworkers from Acosta Sales Griffin and Marketing organized the 5K last year as a way to raise money for lung cancer research. “We want to get the awareness out there for early detection,” said event organizer Rhonell Griffin, 48. “After she passed away we decided to pass the baton and get her story out and educate people.” The Finneytown resident said Alloway was always in good spirits, even while she was sick. “If you didn’t know she had lung cancer, you wouldn’t know. Her motto was ‘Live every moment’ and that’s what she did. Every moment that she had, she lived it up,” Griffin said.
