Finneytown leader is retiring

Robertson’s last day expect to be Jan. 31 By Monica Boylson mboylson@communitypress.com

Finneytown Local School District superintendent Alan Robertson will retire effective Jan. 31. “They levy has passed. The

district is in a good place. I’ve got some family commitments that I wanted to fulfill,” he said. “I thought this was the time to go.” The 62-year-old has worked in education for 37 years, of which 21 were spent in the Finneytown district. His roles in the district have included teacher, soccer coach, athletic director, director of instructional services, assistant superintendent, interim su-

Chinese feeling ‘warm, confortable’ By Monica Boylson mboylson@communitypress.com

The aroma of Chinese cuisine filled the Speelman house. Rose Yang stirred the pot while Viola Jiyi and Julia Ding helped set the table. On this particular Tuesday night, Yang was in charge of the meal. “We each take turns making dinner,” she said. “Some nights we eat American food and other nights we make Chinese food.” Yang, Jiyi and Ding are all guests in Bill and Marlene Speelman’s home. The three teach Chinese in the Winton Woods City Schools District. They were able to come to America through a collaboration with College Board and the Hanban/Confucius Institute Headquarters in China which helps pay for Chinese teachers to teach in America. “Having family here has really helped us out a lot,” Ding said, identifying the Speelmans as family. “They are very consider-

t. Xavier High School senior Kyle Denman can add children’s book illustrator to his resume. Drawing pictures for “Mother Nurture, What Do You Say?” was an after-school project for him in middle school and the book was recently published. He illustrated the book in sixth grade for his gifted talented education teacher Joyce Frericks at then Lakeside Elementary, now Winton Woods Intermediate School. Not knowing if his teacher was going to publish the book, the 17-year-old said he was surprised when she approached him recently – six years later to tell him he was a published illustrator. “When I saw it for the first time, I couldn’t believe it. I was so amazed at all the work and so surprised at what had been accomplished,” he said.

Horn said the board is sorry to see him go. “He’s served more years than most,” she said. “He’s been a strong leader for the district.

Exclaiming her love of the chocolate covered candies, Jiyi said, “This is the first time I’ve found the party size,” and scurried away to fetch a large bag of peanut M&Ms. “Most Chinese don’t like sweets,” Marlene Speelman said. “But she loves them.” Yang also agreed that living at the Speelman residence has been a comfortable transition. “We haven’t felt like we left our family,” she said. “This is very much like home and we’re enjoying it.” Ding teaches fourth grade, Jiyi fifth and Yang grades nine through 12. Winton Woods Superintendent Camille Nasbe was instrumental in working with College Board and the Hanban/Confucius Institute Headquarters to bring the teachers to America. “It’s a really good opportunity for kids to interact with people from another country,” she said. The girls recently invited her to the Speelmans for a Chinese dinner. “They are very nice people,” she said of the couple. “I think it’s so wonderful that they’re willing to take the teachers in and expose them to our culture.”

The district also recognized the couple with a Community Spirit Award during an August school board meeting. The Speelmans just see the teachers as part of the family. “They’re all so different. One is a comedian,” Bill Speelman said before Jiyi interjected and said, “One is sleepy.” He continued, “Rose’s English is very good so we’ve been able to have a lot more conversations with her. “Julia’s married and has a child. The other two are single. You never know what to expect and it’s always surprising and interesting.” “They just fit so well with our family,” Marlene Speelman said. “They’re just fun to have around.”

The painting class launched as part of an initiative by the township in conjunction with the recently developed Springfield Township Arts and Enrichment Council, a nonprofit established to bring the art programs to the township. “We were looking for something that was fun for adults and a little more social,” tonwship communications coordinator Kim Flamm said. Flamm worked with Emily Neff, a former Finneytown school art teacher who teaches the township’s Kids Art Club program, to come up with program ideas. “She knew I was interested in teaching more art classes,” Neff said. “We thought an adult class

Brad Lanier, a science teacher for the Academy of Global Studies @ Winton Woods High School, has been selected to present at the National Science Teachers Association national convention in April on test taking and review strategies. “I’m presenting information from my Master’s thesis that I currently use in my classroom,” said Lanier. “I’ll actually be playing the games and doing the activities with the people who attend my session. I think it’s important to keep my audience active like we do here at AGS. It’s when we learn.” Lanier, who’s in his ninth year with Winton Woods City Schools and his first year with AGS, said his first-year biology students have quite a bit of new vocabulary to learn, so he shows them different strategies to help them retain the knowledge they’re reading. He said he’s created a board game based on energy conversions that keeps students’ attention as they learn the material. Lanier said he’s excited for the opportunity to present to his fellow science teachers, who teach classes from kindergarten through college. “There will be over 5,000 people there, with some coming from other countries,” said Lanier. ■ The Forest Park Wal-Mart has awarded a $1,000 community grant to support the music program. “Given that tax dollars only pay for about 35 cents on the dollar for the cost of the music we perform at concerts, a donation of support like this is greatly appreciated,” said Dave Bell, chorus director. “We are grateful to Forest Park Vice Mayor Sheila Cottle for contacting store manager Scott Valentine, who approved the grant.”

Hooper was recently featured in the September issue national magazine, “School Bus Fleet.” ■ John Pennycuff, vice president of the Winton Woods City Schools Board of Education, has been appointed by the Ohio Schools Boards Association to a two-year term as a member of the Federal Relations Network, a jointly-sponsored program by OSBA and the National School Boards Association. School board members from congressional districts across the country are Pennycuff chosen for the program for their commitment to grassroots advocacy for public education. Members receive information concerning federal education legislation and national issues: What is current, what is proposed and how it helps or hinders public schools—and then tell federal policy makers what works and what doesn’t in their district. Pennycuff will coordinate legislative activities in the 1st Congressional District. He will monitor legislation that impacts public education, serve as a liaison between the board of education and OSBA in federal matters, and will assist in communicating with legislative liaisons in the 1st district.

Lancers add lacrosse to mix La Salle team starts play in spring of 2013 La Salle High School announced it will field a lacrosse team and begin a competitive schedule in spring 2013, and will offer its facilities for use by two competitive youth lacrosse teams. “Adding lacrosse is a perfect complement to our sports programs,” said La Salle Athletic Director Dan Flynn. “The growth of the sport and the growth of our diverse student population from all across southwest Ohio.” La Salle currently competes in cross country, football, golf and soccer in fall; basketball, bowling, ice hockey, swimming diving and wrestling in winter, and baseball, tennis, track and field and volleyball in spring. La Salle 1986 graduate Jim Buttelwerth will serve as president of the Lacrosse Boosters. Joshua Wellen, front runner to be named head lacrosse coach, founded the Westside Wildcats and the Cincinnati Outlaws competitive summer travel team. Most recently, he has been the defensive coordinator for the lacrosse team at the College of Mount St. Joseph. “The ability to develop lacrosse in conjunction with La Salle for players in grades K to 12 has always been a dream of mine,” Wellen said. “Access to the support at La Salle will enable us to take lacrosse to an even higher level. “We anticipate the beginning of Lancer Youth Lacrosse in the very near future.” Information about the Cincinnati Outlaws is available at the www.cincinnatioutlaws.com website. Wellen likes the fast pace and physical play lacrosse offers. “It’s very competitive,” he said, adding, “there are different athletic assets you can have on a team.” Wellen has been a teacher at St. Ignatius Loyola School in Monfort Heights for six years. He lives in White Oak. La Salle is located at 3091 North Bend Road in Green Township and has served students from Greater Cincinnati since 1960. Its website is www.cincinnatilasalle.net.

Local ladies prepare for runs to 2013 postseason By Tom Skeen tskeen@communitypress.com

Melvin Levett takes over an Aiken team that went 6-15 a season ago. The Lady Falcons will take a hit in the post after the graduation of Kady Fall, who put up nine points and pulled down nearly 11 rebounds per game. The team’s top-returning scorer is Alectra Borgemenke who put up 2.9 points and 3.2 rebounds a contest. Aiken’s season gets under way Nov. 27 at home against Taft. The Finneytown Lady Wildcats return three starters from last season’s squad in Tamara Mayes, Shelby Metz and Jade Woodson. Mayes was the team’s secondleading scorer last season with 13.9 point and 6.9 rebounds per game. Metz and Woodson saw limited time a season ago and combined to average four points and four rebounds a game. “I like the fact that we play hard and never quit playing,” fifth-year coach Donald Crawford said. “We are healthier than we were last season. The depth of our team has improved, and therefore will help our team finish stronger.” The Lady Wildcats begin their season Nov. 24 at home against Northwest. Gamble Montessori will ride the backs of Daija Taylor and Ra’keia Johnson, who averaged a combined 36.8 points and 33.1 rebounds for the Lady Gators last season. Bionca Lane, Jamine Lovette, Jerica Jones and Brandy Campbell will add key depth. “I’m looking forward to hopefully winning 15-17 games this year,” coach Fred Mathis said. “We are going to have growing pains because these new girls are first-year players. Our senior class is going to lead us.” The Lady Gators start their season Nov. 24 at home against St. Bernard. In what’s expected to be a tough Girls Greater Cincinnati League, McAuley High School head coach Andrew Schroer will count on a strong nucleus of returning seniors to lead the charge. The Mohawks enter the 2012-2013 campaign coming off a GGCL Scarlet championship. Last year’s squad went 9-1 in league play while posting an overall record of 13-9. Key senior starters returning include Taylor Pifher, Meg Egbers and Taylor Bove. Sophomores Emily Vogelpohl and Sydney Lambert are also expected to contribute. The Mohawks are ranked No. 3 in the Enquirer’s Division I preseason coaches’ poll and tip off the season against Lakota East at Cincinnati State Nov. 24 at noon. Mount Healthy returns two of its

The North College Hill Lady Trojans will look to build off last season’s 9-12 record in the Miami Valley Conference’s Gray Division. This year, the squad will compete in what’s expected to be a tougher Scarlet Division with co-champion Summit Country Day expected to be the favorite. Last season, NCH was led by Kalin Williams, who averaged 15.2 points per game. The squad is coached by Nathaniel Snow and opens the season at Madeira Dec. 1. See GIRLS, Page A7

Coming off a 23-2 season and a Fort Ancient Valley Conference West Division championship, the Winton Woods Lady Warriors begin a new era as an independent team this season.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Not opposed to business

In the recent Hilltop Press article “Citizens say no to rezoning, yes to charter” about Mount Healthy residents voting against rezoning of a local property to a developer for a Family Dollar store, readers could get the mistaken impression that we are opposed to new business development in Mount Healthy. From my conversations with other residents and neighbors, it is apparent that we would love to see more retail stores in our city – but not at 7272 Hamilton Ave. Medical offices occupied that site for many years, but since the last doctor left, I have been told that the high purchase price for the property has discouraged other physicians or dentists from buying it. Our new senior living apartments are nearly ready for occupancy, and we also have a number of day care businesses that would benefit from an Urgent Care or dentist’s office in our community. Given their needs, the current building would be an ideal location for another medical or dental practice. The voters’ rejection of city council’s rezoning of one particular piece of property should not be interpreted or represented as a refusal to welcome new businesses in Mount Healthy. If Family Dollar or other retailers

Animal abuse laws should be tougher I am asking that you would please advocate for HB108, Nitro’s Law. I learned that State Sen. Tom Niehaus refuses to bring HB108 to the Senate floor for a vote. Keeping Ohio a backwater state is doing everyone a disservice. Keeping an arcane law that will only prolong animals’ suffering is inexcusable. By doing nothing Sen. Niehaus is advocating animal abuse. All animal abuse in Ohio is a misdemeanor with a 90-day jail sentence, but most get probation no matter what the abuse, no matter how heinous or horrific or violent. Ohio is one of only four states left that have animal abuse as a misdemeanor. You might ask yourself why bother with a felony animal abuse law. Here’s why: Violent acts toward animals have long been recognized as indicators of a dangerous psychopathy that does not confine itself to animals. “Murderers ... very often start out by killing and torturing animals as kids,” according to Robert K. Ressler, who developed profiles of serial killers for the FBI. Studies have now convinced sociologists, lawmakers and the courts that acts of cruelty toward animals deserve our attention. They can be the first sign of a violent pathology that includes human victims. Nitro was a 3-year-old rottweiler owned by Liz Raab and Tom Siesto who had Nitro boarded at High Caliber K9 Kennel in Youngstown, Ohio. In October 2008, they learned that a total of 19 dogs suffered extreme starvation at the kennel. Eight of them lost their lives; one rottweiler (Nitro), three doberman pinschers, one American pit bull terrier, one border collie and two German

shepherds. After they learned of the tragedy they were awakened to the nightmare that there was only the Mary K. possibility of Johnson COMMUNITY PRESS a misdemeanor provision GUEST COLUMNIST in Ohio laws. Ohio continues to rank at the bottom of animal protection legislation. “Although we’ve had support since 2009,” Liz Raab said, “thousands of Ohio residents have contacted their legislators advocating for the passage of Nitro’s Law HB108 which would allow for the possibility of a felony provision in cases of abuse, neglect and killing of companion animals in a kennel setting by its owners, operators and employees who are responsible and accountable for caring for other people’s animals.” Courtesy of Ohio’s outdated and antiquated laws, a further crime and travesty of justice occurred after the original crime when the owner of the kennel, Steve Croley, was originally charged on 19 counts of animal cruelty for starving 19 dogs, eight of which died, with only misdemeanor penalties regardless of the severity of this horrendous crime. For more information: www.NitroFoundation.com or www.facebook.com/nitroslaw. Call or email Sen. Niehaus and tell him to move HB108 to the senate floor immediately. They are in session now. Thomas E. Niehaus – call 614-466-8082, email to Niehaus@ohiosenate.gov. Mary K. Johnson lives in Cleves.

Use leftover turkey for stovetop pot pie Yesterday I was sorting through the boxes of outdoor lights for our trees and wondering if we’re going to have to purchase more lights. The trees have grown quite a bit since last year, including a small potted evergreen that Ron Wilson of Natorp’s, our garden guru, gave me. I may put that one on the sideboard in the kitchen. The holidays really are Rita fast apHeikenfeld proaching, RITA’S KITCHEN aren’t they? Hanukkah, Christmas, Boxing Day and Kwanzaa are all times to celebrate family, friends and food. I’ll be sharing my best recipes, along with yours, so send your faves to me along with the story of why the recipe is special.

Stovetop turkey pot pie

What to do with that leftover turkey? Make a pot pie. This works well with chicken, too. Depending upon how your turkey was seasoned to begin with,

you may need more garlic, thyme, etc.

BUYING A GIFT OF COOKWARE OR CUTLERY?

3 cups cooked turkey or chicken, diced 1 ⁄2 pound hot sausage, cooked 1 ⁄2 stick butter 1 ⁄3 cup flour 1 teaspoon garlic 1 ⁄4 teaspoon dried thyme 14.5 oz. can chicken broth or more, if needed 2 ⁄3 cup milk Salt and pepper Peas and carrots, as many as you like Good optional add-ins: sliced mushrooms, potatoes, etc.

Melt butter and stir in flour. Cook to get the raw taste of the flour out, but don’t let brown. Add garlic, thyme, broth and milk. Cook, whisking constantly, until slightly thickened. It will look a bit lumpy at first, but will smooth out. Add turkey, sausage and vegetables. Cook until heated through, about 10-15 minutes. Season to taste. Ladle over hot baked biscuits that you’ve split into two, or into puff pastry shells that you’ve baked ahead. You can also put the filling in a pie plate or casserole, cut out a puff pastry or pie dough top to

fit and pre-bake the top. Lay on top of casserole to serve. To finish in oven: Pour mixture after it’s cooked into a sprayed, shallow casserole. Top with pie crust and bake at 425 degrees until golden brown. You can also bake it with a biscuit topping. Follow directions for baking biscuits and use that temperature: Put the biscuits on top of the pie and bake.

Fabulous Frames open house features Charley Harper prints Fabulous Frames & Art Gallery, the largest Charley Harper dealer, will host a holiday open house 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 1, at its 10817 Montgomery Road store. “Four never-before published prints from the newly released Animal Kingdom collection will be available for purchase,” said Fabulous Frames owner Ken Carl. “The prints are being released in conjunction with a lavish new coffee table book by Todd Oldham entitled ‘Charley Harper’s Animal Kingdom.’” Everyone purchasing a new Animal Kingdom print collection will also receive copy of Oldham’s companion coffee table book, which retails for $100. Additionally, anyone purchasing a print that day will also receive a newly-released Harper lithograph “Headbanger.” “This is a big moment for us and the Harper collector,” said Brett Harper, studio director and son of the late Charley Harper. “Over 45 years ago a set of four prints came out when my father joined the national publisher Frame House Gallery. That portfolio, packaged in the olive green which was very in vogue then, cost a pittance of the several thousand dollars it commands today – if you can even locate an intact set.” The giclées in the Animal Kingdom portfolio have been chosen from the hundreds in the new book by the same title. Two of them, “Purrfectly Perched,” which portrays a house cat poised to catch a bird, and “Evening Grosbeaks,” a tandem of yellow-and-black birds on a fence post, are verticals

with a complementary color palette. The other two prints, “ThinkPink,” a paean to flamingos, and “Strollin’ and Patrollin,’” a summery beach scene of sanderlings, are horizontals suitable to be displayed together. Two are from private collections. All four prints are 18 inches x 21 inches and printed on bright white archival fine art paper. They are presented inside a custom-designed folder featuring a wraparound element from the covers of the Golden Press outof-print textbook, “The Animal Kingdom,” itself from 1968. The folder is a luxurious duplex, white on the outside and deep blue on the interior. In addition to the prints, each folder contains separate text cards describing the individual images, an artist biography, and a certificate of authenticity from the studio. (See attached photos.) The Animal Kingdom portfolio of prints is limited to an edition of four 500 estate signed, stamped, and numbered giclées priced at $495 plus an edition of 50 artist’s proofs priced at $595. If sold singly, the prints are $150 each, and the numbers are not first-come, firstserved. The companion 273-page “Animal Kingdom” book is the second major coffee table book produced by Todd Oldham about Charley Harper. Family owned and operated for over 30 years, Fabulous Frames & Art is a full service custom framing and art gallery and is the largest Charley Harper dealer in the world, with five locations in Greater Cincinnati. For more information, visit www.fabframes.com or call 513-489-8862.

Limoncello This Italian lemon liqueur is an elegant addition to your party or dinner drink offerings, but is expensive to buy. The great thing about this is it keeps just about forever in the freezer. Sometimes I’ll mix limes and lemons together. Make now for gift giving. Check out my blog for photos. 2 generous pounds lemons, thick-skinned 4 cups good quality vodka

3 cups sugar 3 cups water

Pour vodka in large glass jar. Remove peel from lemons with a vegetable peeler. Take off all of the pith – that’s the white part – from the peel as it is really bitter. If you can’t get it all off, do the best you can. Place peel in jar with vodka and cover. Let sit at room temperature for at least one week. Some recipes recommend a dark place. I like to leave it out on my counter just to see

the color change and smell the lemon aroma when I open the jar. The vodka will take on the color and flavor of the lemon as it steeps. You can leave the lemon peels in the vodka for a few weeks. Now bring the sugar and water to a simmer and stir until sugar dissolves and thickens a bit. Let cool and then add that to vodka mixture and stir. Strain and put in pretty bottles. Seal and chill a month in refrigerator (or a couple weeks in freezer) before using. To use, serve straight over ice chips, mix with sparkling wine or mineral water and a lemon curl, toss with fresh fruit, serve over ice cream, frozen yogurt or simple cake.

When paying for something on the Internet, it’s very important to protect yourself just in case you don’t get what you’ve ordered. Unfortunately, all too often consumers use their debit card and end up getting burned. That’s what happened to Tonya Coffey of Fairfield Township, who needs to stay in touch with her 28-year-old daughter. Her daughter has been in prison for the past year and a half and stays connected to the family by telephone. “The main factor here is she has a 31⁄2-year-old daughter that we have. For her sake we want to maintain that communication. That’s really important to us and it’s important to her. She has a mommy and wants to talk to her,” Coffey said Trying to save money on pre-paid calls from prison, Coffey saw an ad from a company claiming it could save her big money on such calls. “They responded quickly after I made my $194 payment. I subscribed to a two-year plan,” Coffey

So they would not permit me to have an account,” Coffey said. The company Coffey paid advertised a 100 percent money-back guarantee. But although she wrote them seeking a refund, she didn’t get it. Then she wrote them she had contacted me and that got her a reply. “They did send me an e-mail back saying they were having trouble with their claims processor, with technical issues, to refund the money and they would be getting back to me. That was the last correspondence I got,” Coffey said. Coffey got that response back in June and

says now she can’t even reach the company by phone. “That’s no longer in operation. Any email that I now send them comes back undeliverable,” she said. Unfortunately, Coffey paid this company with her debit card so the money came right out of her bank account. She didn’t use a credit card because she didn’t have one. But if you’re planning on buying something over the Internet, you need to have a credit card so you can dispute the charge with the credit card company. In this case, since Coffey didn’t get the service claimed – and failed to get the promised refund – she could have received her money from a credit card company. If you can’t qualify for a credit card, that should not stop you. You can get a secured credit card from a local bank. For instance, one local bank charges $24 per year for such a card and allows you to deposit as little as $300 into a savings account at the bank. Your credit line will be tied to the amount of money in your savings account. The bank charge is relatively modest when you consider the protection it offers should you need to buy something over the Internet.
