75¢ BECAUSE COMMUNITY MATTERS

Springfield Twp. continues to talk about income tax By Jennie Key

jkey@communitypress.com

Springfield Township officials listened as members of its business community voiced their unhappiness over the idea of an income tax. Springfield Township officials are considering the establishment of a joint economic development zone in the township. Townships cannot collect income taxes by Ohio law. Joint economic development zones are agreements 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. Township Administrator

Business owners and managers attended a meeting at The Grove to hear about Springfield Township’s proposed income for people who work in the township and weigh in on the proposal. JENNIE KEY/THE COMMUNITY PRESS

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 township had two public meetings this week. The first,

Sept. 30, was for officials from the township’s churches and schools, the second on Oct. 1 for the township’s business owners.

About 50 people attended the two meetings, with the majority weighing in at the meeting for businesses. Several business owners said the JEDZ is taxation without representation for nonresident business owners. They don’t like the idea for a number of reasons. Common themes among the comments from the business people who spoke were that they moved to or started businesses in Springfield Township because it had no income tax. They were frustrated about having no vote in the matter when they are most affected, and said their employees will be the ones most hurt by the decision. See TAX, Page A2

SHOCK to the system Police say tester will change how departments handle stun guns By Jennie Key jkey@communitypress.com

COLERAIN TWP. — The police department will pilot the use of a $10,000 piece of equipment that tells officers how their electronic control devices are working.

Officials say the new device is the first of its kind and promises to cause an upheaval and change in practice for how law enforcement handles stun guns. A group of police agencies including representatives from Springfield Township, Cincinnati and Golf Manor were introduced recently to the Axeos, a piece of equipment designed to tell them if their Tasers or other stun guns are working properly at an open house in Colerain Township.

Ken Stethem, founder and CEO of Aegis, the company that makes the device, says it can read the peak current, voltage and pulses per second of these electronic control weapons, giving police critical information about the equipment they use to control suspects. Stethem says many people would be shocked to learn that police have no way of knowing the actual charge being produced by stun guns. He said they have tested ECWs that are “hot” and “cold” which

means they deliver more or less of a charge than the manufacturer’s specifications say. “What this will tell an officer and his agency is that these weapons are operating reliably, properly and safely,” Stethem said. “You do this with your other equipment: radar guns, breathalyzers, tint meters; why would you use a device that is Since they are not tested now, Colerain Police Chief Dan Meloy says it’s not always

ing a JEDZ. Hinnenkamp said the township wrestled hard with the idea of an income tax, but ultimately officials decided they could not go back to property owners, who already have the third highest tax burden in Hamilton County. He 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. Residents would only pay the tax if they also work in the township. “Keep in mind that these employees use our roads and our services,” Hinnekamp said. “Our

property owners are footing their share. We will all be paying. We are not asking any of you to do something we won’t be doing ourselves.” Cities the township has talked with about partnering for the JEDZ include Fairfield, Mount Healthy and Forest Park. Hinnekamp said at the hearings that if the JEDZ moves ahead, it will most likely be in partnership with Mount Healthy. He said the city’s move to RITA, a nonprofit regional income tax collection agency, was the best deal for the township. 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. Hinnen-

possible to know exactly what to expect when an officer uses a weapon that stuns. Meloy says hes looking forward to being part of the pilot, which kicks off in November. Since 2011, his officers have used the Mark 63 Trident Handheld Modular Multi-Stimulus Response Device, also made by Aegis. Meloy said he likes

kamp 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. It’s a key piece in our plan.” Honerlaw said the JEDZ isn’t permanent. The contract being negoti-

ated with Mount Healthy is for 10 years and can be extended in 10 year increments for 40 years if necessary. Honerlaw said if the JEDZ generated a lot more funds than anticipated, the board can reduce the tax. It cannot be raised without a vote of the residents of the township. “We don’t expect to have a windfall here,” Honerlaw said. “We are going to go broke if we don’t make this up. And we need the money sooner rather than later.”

the Trident over other options because its design incorporates a number of non-lethal options (disorienting bright flashing light, pepper spray and stun gun as well as serving as a close contact weapon like a baton) and allows an officer to escalate the amount of force needed easily when required. The Mark 63 does not shoot barbs but uses a milder charge on the skin surface to stun suspects. “It reduces the number of decisions an officer has to make, and the Trident

makes it easier for an officer to change his tactics in the middle of a situation,” Meloy said. “With the Trident, it’s all there in the officer’s hand.” When Meloy chose the Trident for his department, one factor was the assurance that a method to regularly measure the equipment’s output so officers could be certain of the voltage output was on the way. Now that the Axeos is here, he is looking forward to putting it to the test. “This is going to change things for all of us; it has to,” Meloy said. “If there is a way to test, you have to do it. And you want to. You don’t want this to be lethal and you don’t want your officers to be at risk using a weapon that doesn’t perform as expected. It’s a no-brainer.”

Jackson said at the end of the program she worked with some other students on a video project that gave advice on how to survive the Student Intern Academy. Jackson, who runs track and plays alto saxophone in the band, is the daughter of Marcus and Bev Jackson of Forest Park. ■ This year’s String Fest, featuring orchestra students from Winton Woods, Northwest and Colerain high schools, will be held for the first time at the University of Cincinnati CollegeConservatory of Music. The performance is 4 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 26, in the Patricia Corbett Theater in UC’s CCM Village “This one-day festival allows orchestra students at Winton Woods to rub elbows with their peers from neighboring communities,” said Felipe MoralesTorres, orchestra director for Winton Woods City Schools. “Each school prepares individually, coming together for a

one-day marathon of rehearsals, workshops and, of course, the big performance.” Morales-Torres said String Fest gives the high school students the opportunity to meet and work with university professors and students, who gain valuable hands-on experience in return. “The finale is a grand orchestra concert featuring the combined forces of all participating schools,” he said. The event is free and open to the public with no ticket required.

Winton Woods Middle School

The autumn choir concert is 7 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 16, in the school’s auditorium, 147 Farragut Road in Greenhills, and the community is invited. “The choirs are revving up for their first performance,” said Janna Frank, choir director. “Admission is always free, and the featured ensembles are the men’s choir, the treble choir and the newly-auditioned 24.” “The men’s choir will sing a Latin anthem entitled ‘Deo Dicamus Gratias,’ a mountain folk song, and a rousing rendition of a speech and percussion piece called ‘Football.’ The ladies will be singing ‘Fireflies’ by Owl City, a beautiful arrangement of the poem, ‘The Arrow and the Song,’ by poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, and will rock the house with a spirited performance and arrangement of the American folk tune ‘Polly Wolly Doodle.’ 24 will premier their own madrigal arrangement and put their stamp on the traditional spiritual ‘Keep Your Lamps,’” Frank said.

Warriors’ Davis mentally prepared for the spotlight By Tom Skeen

tskeen@communitypress.com

FOREST PARK — The potential is there for Winton Woods High School running back Marcus Davis to go down as one of the best in school history. According to head coach Andre Parker, the junior has a combination he’s never seen at the B-back position (formally known as the fullback). When Parker talks about Davis he mentions names like Hosea Simpson, Jeremiah Goins and Aaron Kemper, and if you are a Warrior fan you know those three are in a class abover everyone else. “Marcus has both (speed and power),” Parker said, “and he’s learning how to run in the offense, he’s learning where his cuts are going to be and he’s learning not to dance and to make one cut and be north. The sky is really the limit for him because he’s just learning.” And the back is learning quickly. After carrying the ball just five times last season, he has 96 carries for 816 yards and eight touchdowns through the first five games this season for the undefeated Warriors. “I’m just working hard,” Davis said. “I try to do the best I can. I never want to be doubted so that’s what drives me.” Doubt is something that crept in last season. After Davis suffered an ugly broken leg as a freshmen, Parker and the coaching staff wanted to see Davis make an impact as a sophomore but it just wasn’t in the cards. “I think more or less physically he was ready, but mentally he wasn’t ready to carry the load,” Parker said. “Every kid is different, but we’re glad he’s ready now.” Being ready is one thing, but not knowing if you belong on the field with a bunch of upperclassmen is another. Parker thinks there was more doubt in Davis’ mind about whether he belonged or not, but that has all

Kemper Road, Cincinnati, OH 45240 Fun fact: The Warriors are 3-1 versus Loveland since the 2009 season. Their lone loss came last season when the Tigers shut out the Warriors 14-0.

since been erased. “Sometimes as a sophomore, a young kid, even though you’re a great athlete, you aren’t sure if you belong out there with all these older guys,” Parker said. “He knows that he belongs this year.” As he sat on the bench watch-

ing Jalen Davis and Tyler Gist carry the load for the Warriors last season, Davis took it all in and wanted to exceed what his teammates were doing and put himself in a class all by himself. “I just figured I wanted to be better,” the junior said. “I want to match the standards of Jeremiah Goins, who was a (B-back) here earlier. He ran with passion and he ran with pride.” Now that he is on the map, the recruiting process is underway and Davis is starting to get some looks. As exciting as that may be for a junior in high school, his veteran coach knows the real recipe for getting to college. “He’s got some coaches coming to see him and he’s went on a couple visits, but Marcus has to handle his business academically and continue to get better on the field and it will all take care of itself.”

McAuley grabbed a 1-0 early lead against McNicholas Sept. 30 on a Caroline Schott goal, but the Mohawks gave up two consecutive goals and lost 2-1 to the Rockets. The loss dropped the Mohawks to 4-8-1 (0-5-0 GGCL) on the season.

SPRINGFIELD TWP. — The whole idea of the Luck of the Irish doesn’t apply to St. Xavier High School sophomore Kirran Magowan. It’s all skill when it comes to his golf game. The Loveland resident is coming off his best round of the year where he shot a 4-under par 67 at the Division I sectional tournament at Miami Whitewater Golf Course to help his team to a record-setting sectional title performance Oct. 2. “I was just thinking about how to prepare for the golf course and just said if I keep the ball in play off the tee and make some putts, I’ll play well,” Magowan said. “That’s what I did.” Magowan, who is of Irish decent, started playing the game at age 7, but you have to go back to his grandpa who lived in Ireland and wrote for the Belfast Telegraph to reach the origin of the game in the Magowan family. “My grandpa started with my dad and my dad got me playing and I just started playing at a really young age and just kept going,” the sophomore said. His game in the states is obviously solid, but what he did to the Old Course at St. Andrews at a young age is quite impressive as well. “My family used to go to (Ireland) every summer, but we haven’t been there the past two summers,” he said. “We played St. Andrews and we’ve played all the famous links courses over there. … I shot an 82 (10-over par) at St. Andrews but I just tried to enjoy it over there.” Needless to say if the Bomber were to play the Old Course today his score would be much better considering the improvement in his game from last season to this. At the same sectional last season, Magowan shot a 76, which is nothing to be ashamed about, but his 67 this year just shows his maturity on the golf course. “I’ve come a long way to this point from last year with my game,” he said. “… I’ve felt changes with help from my coach (Alex Kepley) and my brother, who helped coach me, so I’ve seen a lot of things that have gotten better. Looking towards the future I think if I keep at it there will be less mistakes and more great-

SECTIONAL BOYS GOLF What a day it was for the St. Xavier High School golf team. The Bombers set a new Division I southwest sectional tournament record after shooting a team total of 285 at Miami Whitewater Golf Course Oct. 2, breaking their previous record of 291. “When you’re playing golf as a team game, everybody has to stay in it until the end because you never know whose score is going to count,” St. X coach Alex Kepley said. “… It’s beyond words to have a 67 and two 71s.” The 4-under par 67 came from sophomore Kirran Magowan, who earned medalist honors by four strokes over teammates Matt Schiller and Brendan Keating. “He is the most capable player of being able to do that on a consistent basis,” Kepley said of Magowan. “He’s had a tremendous number of good rounds, but this one is special.” Right behind the Bombers were the Oak Hills Highlanders with a team total of 305, just two strokes off their course record of 303. After Fairfield finished with a total of 317, the final qualifying position came down to two familiar foes in Elder and La Salle. The Panthers were in the clubhouse with a 322, and after a 163 team total on the front nine, the Lancers came through on the backside. Four of the five La Salle golfers turned in better back-nine scores than they did on the front to give the Lancers a 154 on the back for a team total of 317 and a tie for third place to bump the Panthers to fifth place and out of districts as a team.

ness.” Magowan has one trait that any golfer will tell you is the key to success: A short memory. His ability to forget the last shot and focus on the present one is what ultimately will lead to his success at St. X and beyond. “… Each day is a new day, each shot is a different shot and when you are playing well you just take every shot oneby-one,” Magowan said, who won a PGA Junior Series event at Kearney Hills Golf Links this summer in Kentucky. “I don’t really look too far ahead; I’m more of a person that stays in the moment of things.”

What: Gamble Montessori at Manchester High School football game When: 7:30 p.m., Friday, Oct. 11. Where: Manchester High School, 130 Wayne Frye Drive, Manchester, OH 45144 Fun fact: This is the first matchup between the two schools. The Greyhounds are led by sophomore Jordan Freeman, who has 729 total yards on the season (307 rushing, 422 passing).

WESTWOOD — If the stars were aligned the Gamble Montessori Gators would be 4-1, not 1-4 this season. A variety of factors, both on and off the football field, have contributed to the Gators’ rough start. For the first time in three years the school is back in its original building in Westwood and the transition is still underway. “The locker room isn’t ready and we just have so much stuff going on it’s hard to even think about the whole football perspective sometimes,” coach Stan West said. “I just keep telling the guys we are still young though.” With a roster of just 22 players, the Gators boast only three seniors, but youth means growing pains and mistakes and West has seen too many mistakes that have led to a couple losses this season. The one area that hasn’t been troubling has been the offense. The Gators have scored 20-plus points in four of their five games and are averaging 25.2 points per game despite being shutout in their season opener. Leading West’s offense is senior weapon Javontae Lipscomb. The running back/wide receiver/special teams specialist has10 total touchdowns on the season, 472 rushing yards, 251 receiving yards and 390 kick-return yards. As a junior he put up more than 1,100 rushing yards and scored 11 touchdowns.

Jury instructions in the trial emphasized that Zimmerman had “no duty to retreat” because of this law that created the climate in which an overzealous armed neighborhood watchman felt free to stalk, confront, and kill unarmed Trayvon Martin. Since Florida’s Stand Your Ground law was passed seven years ago, the rate of socalled justifiable homicides in Florida has tripled. Ladd Everitt, director of communications at the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence, indicated, “Even if someone hasn’t sustained any damage,

this (Florida) law allows them to shoot and kill someone based only on a fear.” Even in Matt Dillon’s Richard O. Dodge City, on Schwab COMMUNITY PRESS the street in front of The GUEST COLUMNIST Long Branch Saloon, you had to be drawn on first (not just fearful) before you could shoot and kill someone. The Stand Your Ground law results in escalation, rather than de-escalation, of potentially violent situations. U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder denounced the law, “We must stand our ground to

Winter is coming – time to get ready The Farmers’ Almanac and other prognosticators are predicting a much colder, a more snowy and a very long winter. Whether you believe in these soothsayers, it is a good idea to give some thought with preparing for the upcoming seasonal change. Over the years, I have picked up a few ideas and am happy to share. I like to keep things easy and simple! The Federal Emergency Management Agency recommends that you have on hand at least a three-day supply of food and water for the obvious reason that rescuers probably won’t get to you for that long if we experience a major emergency. This is good planning, but generally, our emergencies are limited to snow days with hungry children at home. If you are interested in what FEMA has to say, check out Ready.gov. Milk is one of those items folks rush to get before a snow storm hits. Here’s a simple and easy idea to eliminate that need: say your family uses a gallon of milk a week. The expiration date on milk is out about 14 to 16 days. So if you buy two gallons of milk the next time you go to the store, and then go back to buying one gallon of milk a week from then on, and always using the oldest milk first, you will always have at least a week’s supply of fresh milk. You can use the same storage and rotation process for cereal, soups and other food stuffs. Perishable fruits and vegetables have a much shorter shelf life, so adjust your process accordingly. Buy the items the family likes and normally use – if they won’t eat it, why buy it? Pharmacy needs can also become an issue when inclement weather approaches. Aspirin and other overthe-counter items are gener-

ally easy to obtain and can be bought in sufficient quantities per container as to not to run out during a storm. PreGene Powell COMMUNITY PRESS scriptions can be an GUEST COLUMNIST issue if you can only get a 30-day supply at a time and you run out in the middle of a storm. Check with your health care provider or pharmacist to see if you can obtain a “bridge” prescription so that you can set up a storage and rotation process for your medications as with foodstuffs noted above. Have your service center winterize your vehicle, performing the preventative maintenance to keep you safe and toasty. You may want to keep at least a half a tank of gas in your vehicle all winter. Being stuck on an expressway with no gas during a snow or ice storm wouldn’t be fun at best, and life threatening at worse. There may be some items you may want to consider placing in your vehicle – extra gloves, scarves and maybe a coat, or anything else that might help you personally if you get stuck somewhere in a storm. I know some folks who keep a small shovel in the truck along with their jumper cables and tool box all winter. Hopefully some of these ideas will be of benefit to you and/or your family and friends. Did I mention having extra batteries at home, a crank radio with a cell phone charger, having your fireplace clean ... good luck this winter!

ensure that our laws reduce violence and take a hard look at laws that contribute to more violence than they prevent.” Holder went on to say, “There has always been a legal defense for using deadly force if – and the ‘if’ is important – no safe retreat is available.” A bill pending in Ohio’s General Assembly would make Ohio the latest state with a Stand Your Ground law. Ohio’s current Castle Doctrine law presumes someone has acted in self defense, if in imminent danger, shoots a home or car intruder. In other words, you have no legal duty to retreat when in your residence or vehicle.

Sounds logical. Buried in Ohio H.B. 203, is a provision that expands the circumstances under which Ohio gun-owners have no legal duty to retreat (before using deadly force) to “any place that the person lawfully has a right to be.” Toby Hoover, executive director of The Ohio Council Against Gun Violence said, “You have the right to defend yourself and always will. All we’re saying is that legally and morally, you have an obligation to try to retreat (when outside of your house or car) before taking a human life. Life has to come first.” Jelani Jefferson Exum, associate professor of law at the University of Toledo said, “We can all use deadly force

even on a public street if we believe deadly force was being used against us and we couldn’t run away. Stand Your Ground says you never even have to think about, ‘can I get away before I kill this person?’” Stand Your Ground laws promote gun ownership, promote vigilantism, hamper investigations, stymie prosecutors, confuse judges, confuse juries, and make all of us less safe. Our legal system needs to be about justice. Richard O. Schwab was associate head of school, and middle school head, Cincinnati Country Day School. He is founder of Glendale Organizing For America Community Team.

CH@TROOM Oct. 2 question Congress has passed an exemption from federal law to allow the Delta Queen to once again operate as an overnight passenger vessel. Would you feel safe as a passenger on the Delta Queen? Why or why not?

“I would feel safe aboard the Delta Queen on the Ohio and Mississippi rivers. Compare the DQ’s safety record versus the Ocean-going Carnival cruise liners with thousand of passengers on board. Granted the DQ is wood, but at least land is in site 100 percent of the time and there are not any Somali pirates (Indian Ocean), ice bergs (Titanic) or cowardly captains (Costa Concordia). It will be great to see the Delta Queen back in the Queen City at the New Banks. Hopefully The Belle of Louisville will be here to race the DQ again for opening day. I will look forward to that overhead picture (from a blimp) and all the politicians there taking credit. They may outnumber the passengers. Go figure!” T.D.T.

“I would love to be a passenger on the Delta Queen if the cost wasn't so exorbitant. I think it's great that the Delta Queen is still in operation to remind us of our past mode of transportation that didn't involve cars.” E.E.C.

“I would feel more safe on the Delta Queen, for if were to sink, at least you could swim to shore. If I were to ride with the government, I think we just keep sinking and no way to be saved.” D.J. “Why not? The Delta Queen still appears as a sound vessel, and I am certain all mainte-

waterways and the radar/sonar and other modern navigational aids, I very much doubt a fatal accident could occur due to the hull's material alone.” R.V.

“While I like adventure, the DQ is way past its prime and it was taken out of service for good reason, it is dangerous. It does not meet federal standards and Mr. Chabot is trying to make points with the old folks on the West Side by endangering them. “But the Delta Queen is due for retirement. Let her go.” J.Z.

“What part of wooden superstructure ships not being safe for overnight passengers don't we understand? This regulation was put in place for a good reason. Sentimentality is not a reasonable justification to risk people's lives.” F.S.D.

“I would feel very safe on the Delta Queen. This boat has been a long tradition on the Ohio River and a true spirit for the city of Cincinnati. The company that owns the Queen has taken very good care of it. Ed Seurkamp

“I remember this same battle being waged over 40 years ago and several times in the interim. I have no idea why Congress cannot resolve this matter once and for all. “I would love the opportunity to take a lengthy cruise on the Queen, confident the crew is well-trained and the boat is equipped with adequate safety gear. “The whole issue in the past was the wooden hull of this vessel.

Sept. 25 question Should college athletes be paid? If so, now much? If not, why not?

“Division 1 (FBS) athletes on full scholarship get room, board, meals, tuition and books. These scholarships can last up to five years; so far so good. However the Scholarships can be withdrawn or renewed on a yearly basis. Not all athletes playing a sport have these 'full rides.’ Athletes on full rides are not allowed to work. They put in about 30 hours per week on their sport plus going to class and studying. Many athletes come from homes that can not provide spending money; they cannot sell their tickets or memorabilia. Many of these college sports (football, basketball) provide billions in revenue to the colleges via TV packages and tickets sales. I have no problem with these athletes getting some reasonable spending money. Their head coaches make millions. I am quite sure the athletic departments can spare this stipend. Go figure!” T.D.T.

Two-way brisket can be made in oven, slow cooker The seasons on our little patch of heaven are marked by what’s going on outside in our gardens and what my husband, Frank, is doing with our outside equipment. Right now he’s “salting things away for the winRita ter,” meanHeikenfeld ing he’s RITA’S KITCHEN servicing the tiller, tractor, boat and lawn mowers for a winter rest in the garage. Our bell peppers have finally ripened, so I was able to add them to an antipasto tray I made for a friend’s rehearsal dinner.

Easy antipasto

Need a stunning and delicious appetizer? An antipasto tray fills the bill. It is not only appealing to the eye, but there’s something on the tray for everybody. Go to your olive bar and ask lots of questions. I went to the Eastgate Jungle Jim’s olive bar and was able to sample whatever I wanted. This will help in choosing the right ingredients for your budget and guests. I did choose olives without pits. Since prosciutto is expensive, I bought a few slices to garnish and folded them over on top of the antipasto. I also sprinkled a can of chickpeas on top. The nice thing about this recipe is that it can be assembled a day ahead. For the sauce, I use Caesar salad dressing with fresh herbs stirred in. I drizzle the dressing on right before I serve it.

My favorite two-way brisket

Brisket is a cut of meat from the lower chest or breast of beef. It is amazingly flavorful, but tough, so slow cooking is a must. Either way you cook this – in the oven or in a slow cooker – the brisket turns out tender and so delicious. Serve with mashed potatoes or noodles.

3 pounds beef brisket 2 cups chili sauce 1 cup brown sugar, packed 1 cup beef broth 1 very large onion, sliced 1 ⁄4 teaspoon ground cloves 3 bay leaves Salt and pepper to taste

Oven: Preheat oven to

325 degrees. Combine chili sauce, sugar and broth. Pour about half of this in the bottom of roasting pan. Place brisket on sauce, fat side up. Distribute onion, cloves and bay leaves over brisket. Pour rest of sauce over. Cover and bake 50-55 minutes per pound or until meat is fork tender. Remove brisket from pan and remove bay leaves and whole cloves. Cut brisket across the grain. Skim off any fat from top of sauce. Pour sauce over brisket (or put sauce in refrigerator overnight and the fat will congeal on top for easy removal. Then reheat with brisket in 375 degree oven, covered, or in microwave). Slow cooker: I like to cook mine 9-12 hours or so on low, until meltingly tender.

Perfectly grilled salmon/seafood following the 70/30 rule Have the grill hot, lightly brush both sides of fish with oil, and start grilling skin side up with the grill closed. (Or put a disposable pan over the fish). Leave it alone until about 70 percent of the fish is done on first side. You’ll know it by the looks and also if it will release easily. This allows fish to form a nice crust. Turn it and finish cooking. The rule of about 7-10 minutes per inch of thickness works, also. Start with 7 minutes and go from there.

Readers want to know:

Honing steels: “My honing/knife steel doesn’t work anymore. Should I replace it?” Run your thumbnail around the circumference of the tool. If you can still feel grooves, your steel is still useful. It is magnetized to pick up microscopic fillings that come off the knife’s blade. It’s a good idea to rub the steel with a cloth after use so grooves don’t get clogged. Now unless the honer has diamond chips in it, most steels won’t sharpen a dull knife (they restore the knife’s bite by straightening the microscopic “teeth” at the edge that fold with use). Now even if your honing steel is in good condition, sometimes a knife doesn’t respond to honing. If that happens, it’s

Beware of e-mail, internet scammers These days scammers have taken to the internet to steal your money with fake emails, fraudulent websites and misleading sales offers. While internet scams are numerous, several consumers still report receiving scams through the mail. A Fort Thomas man wrote me about a credit

card offer he received from AmTrade International Bank. It offered him a credit card with “A $3,600 Visa credit limit! Guaranteed!” The man sent what was supposed to have been a refundable $900 fee, but says he never received the credit card nor a pre-paid gas card

Colorectal Cancer Screening Saves Lives

Colorectal Cancer is the 2nd leading cancer killer in the U.S. But it can be prevented. Screening can find Colorectal Cancer early, when treatment is most effective. So, if you’re 50 or older — don’t wait. Talk to your doctor and get screened. For more information about Colorectal Cancer Screening services and other health care resources contact Health Care Access Now by calling 513-245-4351 or info@healthcareaccessnow.org

This project is funded in part by the American Cancer Society.

that was also promised. The 74-year-old man says he’s on a fixed income so the loss of all that money hit him pretty hard. Although he paid by check and contacted the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Federal Trade Commission, he was told nothing could be done to recover his money. Such scams are very popular so remember never send money to someone who promises to loan you money or extend credit. A Hyde Park woman wrote me to say she knew immediately the letter she received was a scam. It allegedly came from Publishers Clearing House and used the company’s real address. The $1.5 million she was told she won was anything but real. She knew not to bother calling the long distance phone number given to claim her winnings. A Wyoming woman received a letter telling her she qualified for an award of two round-trip airline tickets. She suspected it was a scam because there was no return address and the letter had bad punctuation. So she too was told to call a phone number to claim her prize, allegedly valued at nearly $1,400. Better Business Bureau says this is just a phishing scam intending to steal people’s personal information. This woman never entered a contest to receive this award of two free airline tickets plus two nights a major hotel.

Fortunately, just like the Hyde Park woman, the Wyoming woman didn’t call the Howard number Ain and says HEY HOWARD! she wants to warn others about this scam. Many people across the nation have received this letter. One person who called was told they first had to attend a timeshare sales presentation before they could receive the tickets they won. Another person who called was told they had to give their credit card number over the phone. One of the most frequent scams I’ve run into involves criminals sending you what appears to be a real check for thousands of dollars. You’re supposed to deposit the check, keep some of the money, then wire the rest to the sender. Unfortunately, many consumers learn too late that the check they received in the mail is phony – and now they’re on the hook to repay the bank for the good money they wired to the criminals. Bottom line, the mail is still full of scams these days so you have to beware. Howard Ain’s column appears bi-weekly in the Community Press newspapers. He appears regularly as the Troubleshooter on WKRC-TV Local 12 News. Email him at heyhoward@local12.com.
