Maybe they delivered a home-cooked meal when you were under the weather, or watched your children while you ran a quick errand, or helped you with yard work. They are Neighbors Who Care, and we think they deserve recognition. Again this year, the Hilltop Press will devote one of our holiday issues to honoring those in the community who have given a bit of themselves to make the lives of others better. No deed is too small (or too large). If you know a Neighbor Who Cares, tell us about them. You can nominate by sending an e-mail to memral@ communitypress.com, or by regular mail to Marc Emral, OH Community Press, 5556 Cheviot Road, Cincinnati, 45247. Include your name, address and phone number, as well as their name and contact information.
Got a clue where this is? We didn’t think so. Time to go hunting in the neighborhood to see if you can find it. Send your best guess to hilltoppress@communitypress. com or call 853-6287, along with your name. Deadline to call is noon Friday. If you’re correct, we’ll publish your name in next week’s newspaper along with the correct answer. See last week’s answer on B5.

The Forest Park Fire Department will soon be doing its job in a more efficient manner. City Council, at its Nov. 16 meeting voted to buy three Panasonic Toughbooks the department will use to write patient reports. Chief Trish Brooks said the equipment allows paramedics to write one copy of a report that will remain in the database as long as it’s needed. Without the use of the Panasonic Toughbook, the department has to fill out the patient report each time a copy is needed. Brooks said paramedics often filled out three copies of the same report, but those days will soon be history. “This is a huge time-saving device,” she said. Not only will the new equipment allow firefighters to fill out the form once and then simply send copies through the wireless computer, but the computers also come at a discount. The three computers and software cost $15,300, but through discounts and credits with the fire department’s billing agency, Forest Park will only pay $7,600 for the upgrade. “We were able to get them at a huge discount,” Brooks said.
PTA hosts night of family fun, games By Heidi Fallon firstname.lastname@example.org
It was a night of fun and games for Clovernook Elementary School families. The PTA invited folks to bring their best Candyland and Scrabble skills to play with their own and other families. Principal Sheri Johnson said the PTA and her staff designed the night for students in kindergarten through third-grade and their parents.
“It’s a lot of fun,” secondgrader Julia Kinney-Bell said while waiting her turn at Candyland. The PTA will have another game night for older students and their families, Johnson said. “The idea is to show parents how games can be instructional,” she said. “Games can teach children about sequencing, color and language while they’re having fun.” Students and their families also designed their own make-it, HEIDI FALLON/STAFF

Third-grade teacher Elizabeth Johnson said those games use a single file folder to contain the pieces. “It can be a matching game or a word game, but it’s all complete in the folder,” Johnson said. “We use similar ones in the classroom all the time.” She said self-contained folder games are perfect for car rides as well as the kitchen table. The PTA also handed out HEIDI FALLON/STAFF prizes, which included selected Tracie Nichols pits wits with her daughter, Ailin, 10, and Julia Kinney-Bell, 8, far right, during Family board games going home with Game Night at Clovernook Elementary School. family winners.

Winton Woods in food drive contest By Rob Dowdy email@example.com
Winton Woods High School is participating in a food drive within a food drive, with the hopes of benefiting those in need, as well as winning a competition against other schools. The Winton Woods High School Varsity Ensemble was one of 20 choirs to perform at “Star 64 Holiday
Carols” on Fountain Square downtown. As part of that show, the choir, and subsequently the school, is participating in the St. Vincent de Paul Food Drive. The school’s student council and varsity ensemble have joined forces to organize the drive, which will not only have Winton Woods competing against other schools for the prize of being recognized during
upcoming airings of the performance, but also against itself. The class that collects the most food will win a special pizza party. The donated food will benefit those in need during the holiday season. Junior Tiffany Peterson, a member of student council, said Choir Director David Bell brought the idea to student council, and they decided to make it a compe-
tition amongst each fifthperiod class in the school. Junior Ifunanya Okwumo, a member of both student council and the varsity ensemble, said despite tough times for everyone, the food drive has had a strong response and students are bringing in food every day. “I guess it’s just out of the kindness of their hearts,” she said.

Last week’s question
Compared to last year, do you plan to spend more or less on gifts this holiday season? “Happily, I am gainfully employed once again after being laid off in March, but I am not making the salary that I once was – I will be spending less.” C.A.S. “In answer to the question, I plan on spending a bit more. Now, my husband plans on us spending a bit less. I’ve already been shopping online. So far, I’ve gotten just family gifts but I don’t have much to buy. I’ve gotten free shipping on everything so far.” M.E. “Probably about the same. However, some items are more expensive this year.” B.N.
Next question Do you think DUI checkpoints, set up by police during the holidays, are effective? Why or why not? Every week The Hilltop Press asks readers a question they can reply to via e-mail. Send your answer to email@example.com with Chatroom in the subject line. There are defining moments in all our lives to make us grow up and be responsible for ourselves and our families … that day did it for me! God Bless everyone this Christmas especially those in the military!” L.D. “I always have a Christmas Club so each year I give about the same to all the kiddies in the form of money this way they can buy what they want, no worrying about take backs. So this year’s spending will be about the same as last year.” L.S.
“Probably about the same. However, some items are more expensive this year.”
“We will likely not spend more than we did last Christmas. However, we will not cut our spending by an arbitrary amount or rate. We will endeavor to find gifts of the same quality as last Christmas, but will make a greater effort than is past years to find the sales, discounts, etc. Purchases at “regular” pricing will be very limited.” T.M. “Even though I have been unemployed a year and a half I plan on spending about the same. I can do this because I did save for the rainy day. I did put away for the unexpected and I started doing that after Sept. 11, 2001.
“Well, we planned to spend a lot less this year, but we’ve already past that. While we are not buying as much, the things we picked out cost more. I’d rather spend more on one item, but get what they want, rather than have them return things. We’ve also expanded our family this year to include boyfriends and a grandson. Happy Holidays.” C.D.

Warrior workers see state reward By Mark Chalifoux
JOSEPH FUQUA II/STAFF
Winton Woods quarterback Dominique Brown (10) runs the ball against Columbus Marion-Franklin High School in the state semifinal. Brown had seven touchdowns in the 69-35 win.
The Winton Woods High School football team is in the state championship game for the first time in school history. “I’m happy for our kids,” said head coach Troy Everhart, moments after the Warriors defeated Columbus MarionFranklin 69-35. “I don’t know of any group of kids that works harder than a Winton Woods kid, especially with what we demand of them. A lot of groups deserved this over the years but this is the group that gets the reward.” Winton Woods faces Maple Heights next Friday, Dec. 4, at 7 p.m. in the Division II state championship game. The game is at Paul Brown Tiger Stadium in Massillon. For a team heading into that atmosphere the first time, Everhart said there could be some butterflies on his team. “I thought we had some tonight,” he said after the state semifinal win. “In a big atmosphere the kids will be excited. The key is that it’s excitement and not nervousness.” Winton Woods will look to Dominque Brown and Jeremiah Goins to lead the offense, per the usual. Winton Woods racked up 645 rushing yards and 69 points in the state semifinal. Brown led the way with 249 yards and a personal record seven touch-
downs. Goins had 264 yards and two touchdowns in the win. “They are always outstanding and a lot of it has to do with how we perform up front,” Everhart said. “Those five guys on the offensive line don’t get much credit but they played great.” Winton Woods Athletic Director Herb Woeste said the state title appearance means a great deal to the school. “It’s huge as far as the school and the community is concerned,” he said. “We couldn’t be happier. It’s hard to put it into words. It’s a monumental achievement.” Woeste also said he’s impressed with the job Everhart has done. “He’s been unbelievable,” Woeste said. “Not only on the field but off the field with getting kids scholarships year in and year out and in the type of young men he has chosen to mold. He has done the job both on the field and off the field.” The Maple Heights Mustangs will also be making their first appearance in the state championship game after a 21-17 win over Lake Catholic. The Mustangs, like the Warriors, are also led by a quarterback and running back who are dangerous with their feet. Maple Heights quarterback Shaq Washington ran for 193 yards in the state semifinal win and running back DeVonte Ransom had 128 yards in the win.

BOYS BASKETBALL PREVIEW
Hudson set to lead Spartans once more By Tony Meale email@example.com
Last year wasn’t supposed to be anything special. But with only three seniors on its roster, the Roger Bacon High School boys’ basketball team managed to win 20 games, a league title and a city championship. The Spartans eventually fell in district play to Dayton Thurgood Marshall, which advanced to the state finals before losing to Akron St. Vincent-St. Mary, but it was nevertheless a phenomenal season for the boys of St. Bernard. This year they hope to do more of the same. Roger Bacon will be led by senior guard Jorian Hudson, who last year finished second in the GCLCentral in scoring with 14.2 points per game and first in steals with 2.3 a contest.
Coming up Hilltop Press winter sports overviews planned include: Wrestling – Dec. 9 Swimming – Dec. 16 Bowling/ice hockey/gymnastics – where applicable, Dec. 23
He was named league player of the year and defensive player of the year. “I expect nothing less than a repeat of what he did last year, and hopefully, even more,” head coach Brian Neal said. Hudson, who was a wide receiver on the football team, broke his hand toward the end of the season but should be ready to go when Roger Bacon opens against Mount Healthy Dec. 8. He will be joined by senior forward Matt Westerfeld, who will do the dirty work in the paint. “Matt brings toughness, defensive continuity and a rebounding presence for us,” Neal said. “He is our glue.” Other promising players include a trio of juniors – center Jared Bryant, forward Jabriel Coaston and guard Paul Byrd. Bryant, who is 6-8, averaged 6.4 points and four rebounds per game last year and led the team in field-goal percentage, making nearly 64 percent of his attempts. “Jared has really improved this offseason,” Neal said. Coaston, meanwhile, averaged 4.8 points and shot 42 percent from three-point range, and Byrd, a returning point guard, dished out two assists per game.

weighs 240 pounds, was third in the GCL-Central in scoring (13.8 points) and first in rebounds (7.0) as a freshman. Still, the Spartans have more than enough talent to win the league. They went 12-2 in conference play last year, with their only losses coming to GCL-South stalwarts La Salle and Moeller. The other three teams in the GCL-Central – Badin, Purcell Marian and McNicholas – combined to go 12-30 in league play, and none of those teams finished above .500. “(We’re) probably the favorite to win our league,” Neal said.

The Winton Woods High School boys’ basketball team went 11-11 in 2008-2009 but should be one of the top teams in the FAVC in 2009-2010. The team returns four excellent starters. Guard Allen Payne averaged 15 points and 6 rebounds a game in 2008-2009 and forward Dominique Brown averaged 16
points and 5 rebounds. Guard Nate Mason averaged 11 points a game and point guard Semaj Christon averaged 5 points and 3 assists a game. “This team has the experience and components to put together a very successful season,” head coach Donnie Gillespie said. “Our priority this year is to pay attention to the details on both ends of the court and defend every possession.” Gillespie also said the team’s

St. X returns 4 starters from Sweet 16 team
St. Xavier boys
By Tony Meale email@example.com
St. Xavier High School head boys’ basketball coach Scott Martin has led the Bombers to four Final Fours this decade – including a state title in 2000 – and enters his 15th year at the helm of the program. Last season, he guided St. X to a 14-10 overall record and an appearance in the Sweet 16 of the state tournament. Fueling that run on the court was Erik Stenger, who last year led the GCL-South in scoring (17.6 points per game), rebounding (7.7)

Massa shot a team-high 42.7 percent from threepoint range, while Niehaus led the team in field-goal percentage (53.5 percent). Also returning for the Bombers is guard Ben Holcomb, who hit nearly 40 percent of his three-point attempts last season. Promising newcomers include Sam Egbers, Zac Yauss, Sean Duggan and Luke Witte. “We have good experience that we should be able to build on,” Martin said.

Their top returners include senior forward Matt Birch, who averaged 11.2 points and 5.4 rebounds per game last year; senior point guard Nate Tubbs, who averaged 6.4 points and 3.5 assists in only 10 games; and junior guard Derrick Floyd, who averaged 4.7 points and 3.1 rebounds.

La Salle turns to talented junior class On the team
A trio of junior starters return for 19th-year head boys’ basketball coach Dan Fleming following the La Salle Lancers’ trip to the Division I Regional Championship finals last winter. La Salle’s 23-3 season ended with a loss to Princeton, 64-60, as the Vikings captured a regional title en route to an appearance in the state finals. However, the Lancers won sectional and district titles in addition to its Greater Catholic League South Division co-championship last winter before being eliminated. The 2008-2009 campaign was the ninth-consecutive winning season for the Lancers. The Lancers posted a conference record of 9-1 while splitting the GCL South Division crown with Moeller (20-3, 9-1). St. Xavier (14-10, 5-5) took third in the division followed by fourth-place Elder (10-11, 2-8). Juniors Matt Woeste, Brandon Neel and Ryan Fleming represent the Lancers’ returning starters. Junior Trey Casey will also be a key contributor. “Our junior class is very talented,” Dan said. Neel, a 6-foot-3 forward,

averaged 10.3 points and 4.7 rebounds a game last winter. Ryan averaged 8.1 points and 4.5 rebounds a game with Woeste close behind at 5.7 points a game. “We’ll have depth and speed; we’ll be very fast, very quick,” Dan said. “It’s a good group of guys that works hard every day. We have a chance to be pretty good.” Though three players return, La Salle is also dealing with the loss of 2009 graduates Jordon Crawford (16.8 points, 3.4 assists a game) and Danny McElroy (16.5 points, 6.3 rebounds a game). “This year will be more of a group effort,” Dan said. “We’re real small.

The many feelings of the Christmas season The Christmas season is an ambiguous time of year. Perhaps bittersweet is the best term to describe the collage of Christmas feelings. Many factors make it sweet: familial love and closeness, the joy in children’s eyes, personal warmth, cordial dining and conversing, notes from old friends, gifts, but especially the realization we’re loved and thought of dearly. Yet, Christmas time so often involves a bitter side. This side often contains: loneliness, excessive attempts at pleasing, the reemergence of conflicts between siblings and relatives, a sad nostalgia, and a frenetic busyness that destroys the opportunity for personal time and reflection on its meaning. Loneliness is often the predominate heartache that arises at this beautiful season. Perhaps some insights may soften it a little. There are various kinds of human loneliness.
Father Lou Guntzelman Perspectives
They’re brought about by alienation, restlessness, rootlessness, psychological depression, and what we can call a
moral loneliness. In “Against An Infinite Horizon,” Ronald Rolheiser describes it as, “There is a fire inside us that aches insatiably. At every level, body, psyche, soul, we feel our unwholeness and are restlessly driven to seek consummation with others and the world beyond us. We never quite overcome this in this life … It constitutes the fundamental disease of the human person.” In our culture, whenever loneliness is discussed, we conclude that we grow lonely mainly for sexual union and that finding a partner for it will solve our loneli-
ness. That’s far too simplistic. A human person is much more complex. That’s made evident by the fact that not even years of on-going sexual functioning eradicates all loneliness. Have we not heard the complaint of the lonely spousal bed? More deeply than we yearn for a sexual partner and physical union, we crave for what we can all call a moral affinity. We pine for someone to visit us within, in that deep part of us where our very self, and all that is most precious to us is kept, cherished and guarded. We are lonely at levels that sex alone cannot reach. We hunger to be known, understood and loved. Rolheiser explains it well when he writes, “Great friendships and great marriages invariably have this deep moral affinity at their root. The persons in these relationships are ‘lovers’ in the true sense because they
Pain medicine is best for children Selecting pain medication for children can be confusing. New research, published in the American Journal of Pediatrics, confirms that ibuprofen is more effective when treating broken bones, bruises and sprains. Ibuprofen beat out acetaminophen and even prescription codeine in helping to relieve kids’ pain.
A research team from the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario evaluated 300 children aged 6 to 17 years who were brought to the hospital for pain from an injury to their arms and legs, necks or backs. Each child was randomly given ibuprofen, acetaminophen or codeine. Children who received
ibuprofen experienced greater relief 60 minutes after receiving the dose than the other two medications. In addition, patients taking ibuprofen did not need to take additional doses, where as patients taking acetaminophen or codeine did need additional doses in order to achieve adequate pain relief.

or friends. We blame them for not knowing us completely or not loving us as much as we think they should. Or, we run from our ache by becoming too busy and not realizing that others are looking for the same thing we are. The loneliness and lesser loves of this world need not frustrate us. They can serve as reminders of the value of loving one another as best
sleep with each other at that deep level, irrespective of whether or not there is sexual union. At the level of feelings, this type of love is experienced as a certain ‘coming home.’” Christmas time blows on the embers of this desire in us and it blazes up. When it is misdirected and misunderstood, we may sometimes aim our frustration and anger at parents, brothers or sisters, relatives
we can while moving ever closer to the divine meaning of Christmas – that there is a Lover yearning for an affinity with us.

new. And when you open them, regardless of the expiration date on the can (particularly with baking powder), know that you should use them within a year maximum. For baking powder, put a little in some warm water – it should start foaming right away. For baking soda, do the same but use some vinegar or lemon juice, which will activate it if it’s still fresh.
Rita’s creamy Kentucky colonels/bourbon balls
Tricia Boh, a Kentucky reader, asked me to replicate the bourbon balls “like Rebecca Ruth’s makes for Buffalo Trace bourbon distillery in Frankfort, Ky.” Here’s one from my files, which is what I think she wants, as this is a creamy, not cakey, bourbon ball. I also have a traditional bourbon ball recipe which I’m including for our Web version. (Let us know if you want a copy by mail by calling 513-591-6163.) You can divide this in half, or double it. Now I want you to taste the mix-
ture after it’s mixed up – if it’s creamy enough then leave as is. If you want a bit more creaminess, add a bit more butter, starting with a couple tablespoons and go from there. Makes anywhere from three to four dozen, depending on size. I use a small ice cream scoop to make the balls nice and round. I think the coating on Buffalo Trace’s balls is probably bittersweet or Belgian dark chocolate.
1 stick salted butter, softened 1 pound powdered sugar Up to 1⁄2 cup bourbon – start with several tablespoons Chocolate coating: Real chocolate chips: semisweet, bittersweet, Belgian, etc. Beat together butter and sugar. Gradually add bourbon. Form into balls and refrigerate until very firm. (Sometimes I freeze mine in a single layer on a baking sheet, then transfer to a freezer container for dipping later). Melt the chocolate. Remove while still some
l u m p s remain as the residual heat will melt the rest when you stir it. Dip the Rita balls. I use Heikenfeld a wooden skewer to Rita’s kitchen dip mine. As soon as you dip them and put on a sprayed cookie sheet, top with a pecan half. Put in refrigerator to set coating completely. Store in fridge, covered.
Withrow and CPS chess/transparent pie
I could hardly believe my luck when Diane Powell called me with this recipe. For M. Miles and Kim McDonald. Kim wants to make it for her brother who enjoys smooth tasting pie. A good friend of Diane’s worked at Withrow’s commissary and gave Diane the recipe. Diane said most public schools in the 1960s-’70s made this pie. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 1 stick salted butter, room temperature 1 cup sugar 1 teaspoon vanilla 2 egg yolks, room temperature, beaten well 2 tablespoons flour Pinch salt 1 cup evaporated milk (not condensed) 1 regular pie shell
Cream butter, sugar and vanilla together. Sift flour and salt together. Combine, add salt and milk and beat very well, about one to two minutes until well mixed. (Sometimes mixture will look curdled. Don’t worry, it will bake just fine). Pour into shell and bake 40 to 45 minutes on cookie sheets. Diane said the butter tends to bubble over and the pie will be a bit shaky in the center but will set nicely as it cools.

Mt. Healthy Christian Church
CHRISTIAN CHURCH DISCIPLES Caring for an elderly parent can be stressful – running to doctors, keeping records, arranging treatments. When Carolyn’s parents began to falter, she turned to her Group Health Associates doctor. He guided her through some diﬃcult decisions while taking good care of her whole family. When specialists were needed, Carolyn found exactly what she needed in the same Group Health oﬃce – even prescriptions. When her mother had to go to the ER, Group Health’s computerized records allowed doctors to access the data needed to proceed with conﬁdence. That level of care makes Carolyn really trust Group Health Associates.
