Start times stay A later start time for Indian Hill schools does not seem likely anytime soon. District transportation supervisor Barb Leonard conducted an evaluation of an 8 a.m. start time for the high school and found a late start would require seven additional buses.

1920s greenhouse to re-open By Rob Dowdy

Greenacres Foundation is preparing for a very busy few months. The foundation is set to re-open its greenhouse, built in the 1920s, with a series of events at both the greenhouse and the Greenacres Arts Center. Events Manager Beth Carroll said the greenhouse opens Thursday, April 12, with tours of the newly renovated facility and the arts center’s new exhibit, Blossom II: Art of Flowers. The exhibit features dozens of pieces featuring flowers, and two of the numerous art-

Prior to its renovation, the greenhouse at Greenacres Arts Center was in rough shape. Greenacres Foundation is hosting a grand opening event April 12 to celebrate the numerous repairs. PROVIDED

The Greenacres greenhouse is almost completely remodeled, and will be open to the public beginning April 12. The Greenacres Foundation will host numerous events throughout April to celebrate the renovated greenhouse. PROVIDED ists in the exhibit are from Cincinnati. Carroll said the exhibit will continue for four weeks and will coincide with “grand opening” events at the greenhouse, which is located on the arts center site. Stephen Sehlhorst, director of greenhouse and garden operations, said the greenhouse has been under construction since the summer of 2008 and is nearly ready for the public. “It’s a complete renovation and has been brought up to current greenhouse standards,” Sehlhorst said. Greenacres will also be hosting lectures on “microgreens,” which are small leafed vege-

tables that require very little space, on Thursday, April 19, and a lecture on planting and growing annuals on Friday, April 27. Carroll said as those events are happening, the arts center will be open for visitors as well. “If you come to the greenhouse we’ll encourage you to see the arts center,” Carroll said. As with most events at the arts center, Carroll said all proceeds from opening night will benefit the Greenacres Students Transportation Fund, which pays for transportation for schools that visit the center on field trips.

Get into spring with Indian Hill event By Forrest Sellers

The Indian Hill PTO will once again welcome spring with its annual Spring Fling event. The Spring Fling will be 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, March 10, at Indian Hill Elementary School, 6100 Drake Road. Spring Fling co-chairwoman Cathy LeValley-Norwell, of Symmes Township, said the

event, which is one of the P.T.O.’s biggest fundraisers, is a carnival with all of the traditional elements such as games and other activities. “This is a way to make a lasting memory with your child,” she said about the event. “This is (something) kids look forward to all year.” New games which have been added include: Shark Attack, which is a new spin on the toss

game, scooter racing and a Treasure Dig, in which children will have the opportunity to dig for a treasure chest in the sand. A raffle has also been added this year. Some of the raffle items include a Lego Mania basket, a Webkinz World basket and a Family Game Night basket which will include a video game console. “The focus is on kids,” said Cochairwoman Dana Bridge, of Kenwood. “It’s kids coming and

having fun.” Face painting will once again be part of the event as well as book and bake sales. A lunch will also be available. Advance game and activity tickets are 75 cents and $1 on the day of the event. Raffle tickets can also be bought in advance for $1.50 or $2 on the day of the event.

Village trail maintenance revenue falls By Rob Dowdy


Indian Hill is seeking answers to declining revenue used to maintain the village’s network of bridle trails. The village has seen a significant decrease in bridle trail membership the past several years and that decrease has led to fewer funds the village use to maintain the trails. Indian Hill Village Councilwoman Lindsay McLean said the decline in membership can be attributed to the economy and a “waning” interest in riding in general. However, the village is seeking ways to encourage riders to either renew or obtain licenses or daily passes in order to build the fund that pays for trail maintenance. McLean said signage could be placed at areas where riders park their vehicles before entering the trail as a friendly reminder to obtain a license before using the

Individual membership for Indian Hill bridle trails is $75 for residents, and resident family memberships cost $150 for the first two riders and $15 for each additional family member. For non-residents, membership costs $100 for individuals and $200 for the first two riders in a family and $20 for each additional rider. There is a one-time initiation fee of $150 per rider. For more information, contact the village at 561-6500.

Indian Hill is looking to bolster membership for its bridle trails. The village is considering signage and other reminders to inform those using the trails about licensing. The money obtained through licensing offsets the cost of maintaining the trails. FILE PHOTO trails. Flyers may also be distributed to nearby stables. McLean said she’s also working with Camargo Hunt officials to assist in encouraging riders to get licenses or day passes to use the trails. She said the village could also give warnings and eventually citations to those who consistently use the trails without passes or li-

censes. “We will also utilize the Rangers,” McLean said. Assistant City Manager David Couch said the village budgeted $21,000 this year for maintenance of the village’s approximately 150 miles of bridle trails. He said as the village attempts to increase revenue through licensing there will also be a focus on

keeping maintenance costs down. “We’re looking at ways to be cost-effective,” Couch said. McLean said there’s a possibility the village could focus more attention on the main trails being used while allowing some of the trails that run parallel to oft-used trails to “go back to nature.”

ternoon pickup and delivery of students not just in the high school but in the elementary and primary schools. She said students in kindergarten through grade five could potentially not be arriving home until about 5 p.m. The district had begun looking at a later start time for the schools in 2010. A task force had been formed to research the topic and conduct a survey. During the February school board meeting, Leonard also provided an update on transportation in the district. She said a routing soft-

ware called Versatrans, which Leonard began using in spring 2011, has saved the district about $100,000 a year. She said the software allowed the district to eliminate 2.5 routes, which amounted to 10.5 fewer daily hours of drive time and 161 fewer miles a day. “I’m thrilled with the savings we’re seeing already with routing software,” said Leonard. The district currently has 35 buses, 10 of which are sub buses used for field trips and to replace buses undergoing maintenance, and 25 contracted bus drivers.

Ursuline announces Morgan Judd '11 Scholarship In less than two months since her sudden death Dec. 6, an endowed scholarship has been established in the name of the muchloved Morgan Judd, who graduated in 2011 from Ursuline Academy. “Our family has been profoundly touched by the outpouring, love and support of the entire community. Ursuline was such a special, formative part of Morgan’s life, and continues to be an incredible blessing to all of us. We are honored by the opportunity to perpetuate her legacy of grace and compassion by offering a scholarship in her name,” says Morgan's mother, Leigh Judd. Since Morgan's death, Ursuline has received gifts from 51 individuals or groups, and others have made contributions to a fund at the Greater Cincinnati Foundation. The Morgan Judd '11 Scholarship is an endowed fund created by the Judd family. All endowed funds must mature for one year prior to being awarded, but the Judd family would like to have a UA student recipient for the 2012-13 school year; therefore they have made a gift to the school for a one-year expendable scholarship. Said Morgan's father, Jerry Judd: "Morgan truly loved Ursuline, especially her wonderful relationships with friends and teachers. We are grateful for the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of future Ursuline women through the spirit of our sweet angel Morgan." Morgan, who lived in Hyde Park, was a freshman at Wake Forest University where she performed and competed in dance, and studied business. She was an exceptional dancer at Ursuline as well, and performed at numerous events that called for her talent in ballet, tap, clogging and other dances that she had been doing since seventh-grade.

Judd A student at The Studio for Dance in Blue Ash, Morgan and her dance team competed and performed throughout Ohio, including dancing with the Cincinnati Pops, other venues, and in Windsor, Canada. In addition to dance, Morgan was a fine student who was an AP Scholar with Distinction and she earned several college scholarships. She was well liked by her teachers and peers who considered her a kind and genuine friend, someone who had a contagious smile and kindness she generously shared with others. In addition to her studies, dance and other activities she also cared about those in need by participating in community service both at Ursuline and in Winston-Salem where her college was located. “Morgan was a young woman of great strength and grace. Her smile was a welcome sight to everyone she encountered. We are grateful to the Judd family for allowing us to be a part of Morgan’s life and we are thankful that her legacy will live on at Ursuline Academy, ” Ursuline President Sharon Redmond said. Anyone interested in contributing to the scholarship may do so by contacting Ursuline Development Director Tim Ranaghan at (513) 791-5794 ext. 1222 or

Pennies campaign is not just small change By Forrest Sellers

A penny a day can really stack up. Especially when it’s going toward charity. Once again the Indian Hill Middle School Student Council is spearheading a Pennies for Patients fund drive. Each classroom has been given a donation box with the proceeds going to the Pennies for Patients campaign organized by the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. “We love the cause because we know every penny counts,” said eighthgrader and Student Council member Allie Satterfield, of Indian Hill. The campaign kicked off Feb. 6 and continues through Feb. 24. In addition to the donation boxes, Student Council members are selling erasers, and teachers are encouraging class participation in a variety of ways.

One teacher even vowed to dye her hair pink if her class raised the most money. Last year almost $2,200 was raised. Sixth-grader and Student Council member Mick Oakes, of Kenwood, hopes to exceed that. “(We) hope to raise $2,500,” he said. For Oakes, it’s just a matter of helping out. “We want to make everyone else’s life better.”



Indian Hill developer honing plan

A proposal to build a180unit “urban-design apartment neighborhood” at the former Kutol Products Co. site in Madeira may be moving from the talk to the action phase. Indian Hill businessman Richard Greiwe of Greiwe Development Group, who has been talking to Madeira officials since last year about the project, plans to submit a proposed zone change that would allow the apartments, said City Manager Tom Moeller. Moeller also said Greiwe continues to negotiate with the owner of the five-acre property on Camargo Road – currently zoned for manufacturing – behind Walgreens and near the heart of the city’s downtown. Greiwe, who could not

be reached for comment, originally proposed 200 apartment units. “After they evaluated the property, 200 units would not fit well,” Moeller said. “As well, I suspect their market study may have indicated that 200 units were more than the market would support.” Madeira lost 135 jobs and $70,000 in annual earnings taxes when Kutol Products left the city in February 2011 to move to Sharonville. Developers with ideas for residential, retail and office uses – and combinations of those options – of the space have eyeballed the site where Kutol made hand soap and soap dispensers. “We did have an individual approach us about the zoning for turning the site into an indoor recreation facility - basketball, volley-

I do not know if they are still interested should Mr. Greiwe’s development not proceed.” Moeller said it does not appear another manufacturer with an interest in the former Kutol Products site

will come forward any time soon. “As well, we have been told by independent commercial developers that the site is not likely to develop into a retail and/or office use anytime in the near future because of the market conditions in this area,” Moeller said.

Cottage proposal scuttled in Madeira By Jeanne Houck

MADEIRA — A proposal

to build a half dozen cottages in downtown Madeira has been scuttled. Madeira City Council recently voted 7-0 not to approve a new zoning district that would have allowed Landquest Services to build six cottages in the 2,000 square-foot to 2,400 square-foot range on Euclid Avenue, just west of the Madeira fire station on Miami Avenue. “City Council did not believe the creation of a ‘transitional residential zone’ on this property was consistent with the overall land-

use plan of the city,” said Madeira City Manager Tom Moeller. Landquest Services was established in July 2011 and lists Randy Green of Indian Hill as its agent. He could not immediately be reached for comment. Moeller said, “The developer has not expressed an interest in any other property in the city.” Mayor Rick Brasington said it is questionable whether the Euclid Avenue property is a transitional property, as the zone change would require. "It has been a traditional residential piece in the past and nothing has changed in that regard to think of it

otherwise," Brasington said. "It is also outside of the central business district triangle of Miami Avenue, Euclid Avenue and Camargo Road and does not abut the business district itself. Landquest Services ran into opposition in Madeira soon after submitting a plan to build as many as seven cottages as high as 35 feet and set back 10 feet from the rear property line. The company subsequently submitted a revised plan to build no more than six cottages at a maximum height of 28 feet, set back 40 feet from the rear property line.

Dominant Ursuline makes wake at state


By Nick Dudukovich

BLUE ASH — This is what Ursuline Academy swimmers wait for all year. Sure, dual meets, the league championships and the first two rounds of the postseason are competitive, but state is what it’s all about. And the Lions didn’t disappoint as the squad left its mark on the state championships, which were at Canton’s C.T. Branin Natatorium Feb. 22-25. Ursuline placed second in the team standings, while junior Bridget Blood (100 breaststroke, 200 IM) and sophomore Emily Slabe (100 backstroke) won individual state championships. In relays, Slabe, Blood, senior Corinne Jenkins and sophomore Temarie Tomley cruised to a second straight championship in the 200 medley event and set a state meet record for a second straight day. They finished in 1:42.51, nearly three seconds ahead of second-place Upper Arlington (1:45.15). Ursuline had set the previous record of 1:42.98 in the preliminary round Friday. “This was by far the fastest we’ve gone all season,” Jenkins said. “It felt great. And the energy is great because we’ve got all the girls behind us and that helps so much.” The performances cement Ursuline’s standing as one of the state’s top swimming programs.

Earlier in the year, the Lions picked up their 28th Girls’ Greater Cincinnati League championship. Ursuline head coach Brad Isham believes the program’s history gives his swimmers a sense of pride in the pool. “There is a lot of pride and they take it seriously to represent Ursluine well and to have the success that is expected being at Ursuline,” he said. The championships and team standing vindcated the

efforts put forth during the 2011-2012 campaign, according to Isham. “These girls put in a whole lot of hard work...,” he said. Slabe was voted the meet’s top swimmer as she defended her back backstroke championship. “I was just going in really confident. Last year I was all nerves because I was this little freshman. This year I was really confident. I knew I had girls that were gunning for me, but I stayed confident and I swam my own race.”

Indian Hill takes an entourage to Canton By Scott Springer

INDIAN HILL — The long red line toward Canton left Feb. 22 on schedule. It sounds like a train route, but it was actually Indian Hill’s traditional motorcade that traverses Interstates 71, 70 and 77 on yearly basis for the state swimming and diving meet. Gretchen Bloomstrom is the conductor of the chlorine convoy that sprung into action with the diving competition upon arrival. The first splashes for Indian Hill were by their young divers, freshman Katherine Arnold and sophomore Cassie Wegryn, the current and past Cincinnati Hills League divers of the year. “We have not had two Indian Hill divers at state in years!” Bloomstrom proclaimed. Wegryn and Arnold finished eighth and ninth respectively in the Division II finals, with Wegryn edging Arnold 344.85 to 344.80. Following the diving, Indian Hill’s swimmers took center stage. The defending state 200 individual medley champ Mack Rice was back in that arduous race as

well as the 100 backstroke, something he didn’t attempt until postseason. Rice didn’t disappoint in the 200 IM, blowing away his own state record and winning in 1:49.23. All things considered, a

second-place finish in the 100 backstroke at 50.17 was also extremely impressive. “Mack was fully tapered and ready to go,” Bloomstrom said. Rice also teamed up with his brother (sophomore Drew), sophomore Noah Brackenbury and freshman Sam Vester in the 200 medley relay for the Braves. The youngest, Vester, broke 23 seconds in his freestyle leg at districts (22.84) for the first time all year. In the finals, the Braves medley team took fifth place at 1:38.16. On the girls’ side, many of the Lady Braves made dramatic time drops to get to the C.T. Branin Natatorium. Xanna Tracy broke two district meet records in the 50 free and 100 back. Two-time CHL swimmer of the year Hannah Vester, was under five minutes in the 500 free and her sophomore sister, Sarah, moved on in the 100 back and 200 free. Last year’s CHL swimmer of the year, Elizabeth Heinbach swam faster in the 200 IM and 500 free at districts than she did a year ago and Rachel McGoff, Maddie Slattery and Delaney Smith were extremely fast in Ox-

Senior Hannah Vester was fourth in the 500 free and fifth in the 200 and senior Elizabeth Heinbach placed eighth in the 200 IM. In addition, all three Lady Braves relays made the finals with the 200 medley team of sophomores Rachel McGoff and Delaney Smith, junior Tracy and senior Hannah Vester placing fifth.

Hamiter highlights Moeller trip By Scott Springer

MONTGOMERY — Moeller head coach Bill Whatley had swimmers in nearly every Division I final the evening of Feb. 25, but the highlight event was the100 backstroke. That’s when Moeller senior Harry Hamiter ripped through

the waters of the C.T. Branin Natatorium 100 yards backwards quicker than his seven opponents in the final. In 50.53 seconds, Hamiter realized a dream and brought home a state title to the school off Montgomery Road. “That’s been his goal since he got here, all four years,” Whatley said. Hamiter went out with a 24.39

split and held off competitors from Beavercreek, Lancaster and St. Xavier. “It was a fairly close race,” Whatley said. “There was a tie for second and a guy right behind them for third, but Harry broke ahead of them.” It was a busy meet for Hamiter, who also was on Moeller’s 200 and 400 freestyle and 200 medley re-

lay teams. The 200 quartet finished 14th, while the group of Hamiter and fellow seniors Matt Hobler, Christian Josephson and Christian Foos placed sixth in the 200 medley and seventh in the 400 free. “He was in all three relays and he was first in all three relays,” Whatley said. “He had a great last meet.”

Heinbach finished ninth in the 500 free. “I am so impressed with how our girls stepped up and swam,” Bloomstrom said. The goal on the weekend of Feb. 24-25 was a top three finish. The Lady Braves did one better and finished second to Gates Mills Hawken. “Our girls team has not been this strong since at least 2005,” Bloomstrom said. “The number of school records we were breaking, along with the individual number of qualifiers and the relay seeds we had going into state are the best in Indian Hill history.”

Other individual efforts included Christian Josephson’s fifth-place finish in the100 fly, Hobler was 16th in the 50 free and freshman Kevin George was 16th and 13th in the 200 and 500 freestyle, respectively. After the workman-like performance, the Moeller’s celebration plans were pretty simple. “Drive back to Cincinnati in the snow!” Whatley said laughing.

Enquirer editor explains new subscription model Here are a few examples of things you know or understand because an Enquirer journalist was on the job: » That Cincinnati police often start police chases that violate their own policies. » More school districts than ever are closing school buildings because of the recession. They used to only close buildings if enrollment fell. » About half the companies that received state tax money didn’t create the jobs they promised. » The biggest pot of federal stimulusmoneyforourregionpaid for the new Duke Energy electric meter system. The stimulus program here protected thousands of jobs for a couple years but it’s unclear that it created many. I could go on and on.

With the pending retirement of Dr. Knudson, superintendent of Indian Hill Schools, and the recruiting of her replacement, the stars have aligned themselves for a paradigm shift in student learning. Under Dr. Knudson’s leadership a solid foundation has been built for transitioning from teacher-centric classrooms toward student-centered, digitally-enriched learning. Our schools are networked and linked electronically. Parents, students, teachers, and staff email seamlessly 24/7. The infrastructure is in place, its use is welcomed by all. Dr. Knudson, her Director of Technology Arline Pique, Assistant Superintendent Dr. Ault, and a growing core of forward-looking teachers, have brought us to this threshold. Now we can discern the path ahead. Learning, of course, is the core mission of a school. Laptop and tablet computers are in use at Indian Hill in an increasing number of settings to engage students, deliver content, provide remediation and advanced instruction, and liberate teachers to function as mentors and gurus. There’s even talk of the “flipped classroom,” in which lessons in digital form are studied at home, and then discussed and reinforced in school the next day. These are glimpses into a

That doesn’t charge the infrequent reader but does ask regular readers to pay. » If you receive a weekly community newspaper like this one and want to regularly read digital content, you will buy a digital subscription.

CH@TROOM Last week’s question What changes, if any, would you make to the current primary election process?

“I am not too concerned with the election process as much as I am with the lack of quality candidates.” D.D. “I would enact legislation that would require that primaries be held on the same date in all states, so that early returns in those places where the elections are held earlier in the year would not have such an unfair impact on the outcome.” Bill B. “Lots! Clearly this process was designed when the only way to get your message out was travel by horseback or iron horse. Then it needed to be protracted. “Today the message is disseminated by TV and the Internet, so we can contract it to a month at the most. Lots of advantages. It would clearly be one message for the nation, not a message that is honed for a particular state, yet heard everywhere so that we don't know for sure what a candidate believes because all of them have 50 different spins. “Also, it would be a whole lot cheaper, so the mega-donors to the PACs could pay the difference into the federal coffers and help the deficit a little bit and I could stop muting their ads. “If we took the same steps with the general election process, then we could reasonably expect our government to spend far more time working on the nation's problems, and far less in campaign mode.” D.R.

it. How else can we weed out the less desirable candidates and end up with one that has a chance to beat the opposing party's choice? Plus, all that advertising is good for the economy.” P.C. “I'm not sure if this is within the scope of your question, but I would like to see that in all elections picture identification is required as well as proof of citizenship for those not born in the U.S. (I would like to know that this is required for all entitlement programs as well!) “In addition to this, I think a signature should be required to a document stating that no compensation of any sort has been received in exchanged for his/ her vote, giving pause to engaging in such an act. “Finally, I don't think that the amount of personal finances and that of contributions should control the end result of the process. What would it be like, I wonder, if each candidate had the same amount to run his/her campaign with? I'd very much feel more comfortable and confident if that were the case.” S.N.

Big laughs coming to LSC with 'The Producers'

By Chuck Gibson


aughs should come early and often when the curtain opens for the Loveland Stage Company production of Mel Brooks’ “The Producers” starting March 9. Whether they’ve seen the 1968 film with Zero Mostel and Gene Wilder, or the 2005 version with Nathan Lane and Matthew Broderick, the audience will recognize the story of a flopping producer, turned con-man, turned successful producer again. The LSC presentation is produced by Pat Furterer and directed by Tom Cavano, with set design by Deirdre Dyson, choreography by Marjory Clegg and music direction by John Nixon. “It is 100 percent laughter. There is nothing serious about this show at all,” Cavano said. “I hope the first laugh is the moment the curtain opens. The last laugh will happen about four or five days later after you leave the theater. You go: ‘Did they really say that, did that really happen?’ and you get that chuckle that comes.” Cavano is excited about directing a show which was a “smash hit” on Broadway. The show broke all kinds of records for awards. This is the regional premier production by a community theater group. It is a big production for Loveland Stage Company. “It is a huge challenge for us. It is such a dynamic show with a lot going on,” Cavano said. “Big characters, big scene changes, big dance numbers and a big cast.” Making those big scene changes quickly is critical to the flow of the "The Producers" director Tom Cavano, choreographer Marjory Clegg, and producer Pat Furterer look on during a rehearsal for the production which opens March 9 at the Loveland Stage Company Theatre. CHUCK GIBSON/FOR THE COMMUNITY PRESS

ABOUT THE SHOW Mel Brooks’ “The Producers” presented by the Loveland Stage Company » Evening performances: March 9, 10, 15, 16 & 17 » Matinee performances: March 11 & 18 » Evening showtime: 7:30 pm » Sunday matinees: 3 p.m. » Theater is at 111 S. Second St. (State Route 48) in Loveland » All tickets are $15 » Order tickets on the website, or call 513-443-4LSC (4572) More at:

show. Cavano is counting on the set design of Dyson and stage management of Glenna Knaap to keep things moving. Choreographer Marjory Clegg said: “There’s a lot of big numbers. There are a lot of people on stage. There are a lot of dancers.” Clegg faced the challenge of teaching “some non-dancers” how to dance, but said, “They’re cooperating and doing very well. A lot of it is movement, but a lot of it they had to learn to do. It’s been very exciting.” She thinks audiences will be most excited by either “Springtime for Hitler” or the opening number: “I Want to be a Producer.” Lots of people on stage won’t take the spotlight off the four key characters. “There is no small part in this show. Obviously we focus on Max and Leo, Roger de Bris, Carmen and Ulla. Everybody wants to see Ulla,” Cavano

Kari King delivers a sexy Ulla, the secretary/receptionist with "confidence and amazing beauty" said director Tom Cavano.

Justin Thompson as Leo Blum and Dave Marcus as Max Bialystock rehearse their role as the two lead characters in Loveland Stage Company's production of Mel Brooks' "The Producers.” CHUCK GIBSON/FOR THE COMMUNITY PRESS

said about the sexy secretary played by Kari King. “Ulla has to look amazingly hot. Kari delivers it with absolute confidence and strength and beauty that are amazing to have her on the stage.” Promotional materials for the show advise parental discretion due to the adult humor. “I am playing Ulla, who is the secretary slash receptionist,” King said. “It’s a little bit mischievous. It’s been a good time.” Having a lead part is new for King who made her first appearance with LSC last fall in “Funny Girl.” “Having a part in it is great,” she said. “The show is hilarious.” The characters exaggerate the stereotypes of Broadway. “It is so much fun for us to play these characters because they’re everything you always wanted, but were never allowed to do,” said Cavano. The lead role of Max Bialystock is played

by Dave Marcus who, Cavano said, “is just a really dynamic guy, just absorbed into this character and having a lot of fun bringing Max to life. It’s fun to see.” Justin Thompson transforms the timid weak accountant role of Leo Blum into memorable laughs. Steve Suddendorf plays Roger de Bris as the flamboyant, openly gay Hitler. His entrance “stops the show,” Cavano said. “It is one of the funniest moments in the show.” The supporting cast will deliver a lot of funny moments too. Veteran of the LSC stage Matt Schiesl brings his own “personal flare” to keep the laughs coming as Carmen. Newcomer to the Loveland stage Joodi Archer is having fun as one of Max’s “old lady investors” and said, “It’s been great. They get amazing support from the community. They get the support of the audiences. I think it’s great for community theater.” Great audience support is exactly what Cavano is hoping will sell out all seven shows scheduled. After all, it’s a Mel Brooks comedy with laughs for everyone. “This is a show that can appeal to everybody’s sense of humor,” King said. “You have to play close attention to some of the small minor things, but it is just a riot. It makes fun of everybody, so hang on tight to your seat because it’s gonna be a rough ride.”

Maple syrup spices up chunky granola mix

It’s maple syrup time! When our boys were little we drilled a hole in one of our sugar maples, put a homemade spile in it, and hung a bucket to gather what we knew Rita would be Heikenfeld gallons of RITA’S KITCHEN sap. Well, something wasn’t right with our process and we got just dribbles. After that experience, I decided the grocery was my best source for pure maple syrup. Since I have so many reader requests, I’m using column space for requests instead of several recipes.

Rita’s Can’t-Quit-Eating Chunky Maple Granola For years I’ve been trying to make chunky granola, adding dry milk, extra honey, you name it, without success. Leave it to Cook’s Illustrated to develop a technique that works. Here’s my adaptation. Don’t get timid about

adding flax and chia seeds. They’re optional, but huge sources of Omega 3, the chia in particular, and are really tasty. It’s easy to eat, being chunky and all, thus the name. I’m going to try this technique with my other granola recipes. Check out my blog at for step-by-step photos. Coating:

⁄3 cup pure maple syrup (I used Kroger Private Selection) 1 ⁄3 to ½ cup packed dark brown sugar ¼ teaspoon salt 1 tablespoon vanilla ½ teaspoon almond extract ¼ cup soybean or canola oil ¼ cup olive oil 1

Granola: Mix together 5 cups old-fashioned rolled oats 2 tablespoons flax seeds (optional) ¼ cup chia seeds (optional) 2 cups sliced or slivered almonds

Add after baking: 2 cups dried cherries (optional)

Line a large cookie sheet with parchment paper or spray with cooking spray. Preheat oven to

325. Whisk syrup, sugar, salt and extracts together, then whisk in oils. Pour over oat mixture and mix. Pour onto cookie sheet with sides in thin, even layer and press mixture down until very compact. That’s the key to chunky granola. Bake 35-40 minutes, rotating pan halfway through. Remove and cool to room temperature. Break into desired chunks. Stir in fruit. Tips: Use favorite nuts and fruit, or no fruit. Use light brown sugar, and all canola or soybean oil. Omit almond extract and increase vanilla to 4 teaspoons.

Can you help?

Le Boxx Café’s chicken chili for Thelma and several other readers who can’t get enough of this spicy chili. I stopped and talked with Dave Armstrong, proprietor, who couldn’t share the recipe.

Rita finally cracked the code for making chunky granola. This one uses maple syrup. THANKS TO RITA HEIKENFELD. His chef, Franklin, makes 10 gallons about every other day. It’s that popular. “Lots of chicken breast, canned black-eyed peas, chili powder, chicken base, heavy cream, celery, onions, yellow and red bell peppers, and jalapeños,” he said. His roux is butter and flour, and olive oil. Have a similar recipe? Please share. Check out the chili – see how thick it is. I can attest to its “yummy factor.” I’m now addicted, too. Their Caribbean chicken is a close second. Like O’Charley’s broc-

coli cheese casserole for Sharon. Like Subway cookies. Easy punch recipes for Charlene, who made my punch recipe with ginger ale and iced tea. “Everyone loved it.” She needs easy ones like this for a women’s club. Cinnamon coffecake like Thriftway grocery for Rose of Cold Springs. “Also roll recipes with coconut or peanuts and icing.” Substitution for almond or rice milk in baking for Carol, who is lactose intolerant. “These

milks don’t work well,” she said. Like Mount Washington Bakery & Creamy Whip cinnamon squares. I get requests for items from this iconic bakery all the time. The squares have been topping the list. For a reader who thought this bakery closed. The reader said: “I’ve tried Graeter’s and other bakeries, but they just don’t taste the same.” I spoke with Nick Ganim, owner, and he assured me they are still operating but closed until April (it's a combo bakery and creamy whip) and when he re-opens in April the cinnamon squares, along with all cookies, etc., will be available. Call ahead to set some aside. Nick uses yeasted Danish dough for cinnamon squares, so if you have a similar recipe, please share. Otherwise, you can always enjoy them at this Mount Washington treasure. Rita Nader Heikenfeld is an herbalist, educator and author. Email her at with “Rita’s kitchen” in the subject line.

TriHealth gets a safety grant to reduce crashes The Trauma Services department of Bethesda North TriHealth Hospital in Montgomery has been awarded a traffic safety grant by the Ohio Office of Criminal Justice Services. The goal of the yearly grant is to reduce traffic related crashes in Hamilton County through education, public awareness, and building partnerships. TriHealth will now be the lead agency for the Hamilton County Safe Communities coalition. HCSC was previously led by the Hamilton County Public Health department and is funded through a federal grants distributed by the state of Ohio to local jurisdictions for targeted traffic safety education initiatives. “This coalition brings together our experience in injury prevention with the community and creates partnerships that make a difference in the

safety and health of drivers and passengers,” said Dr. Anthony Borzotta, medical director of trauma services. HCSC brings together law enforcement agencies, the Hamilton County Engineers Department, area hospitals, local businesses, and media, all with a mutual interest in traffic safety. The group uses multiple strategies, including education, public awareness, and high-visibility enforcement, to improve traffic safety and to reduce and ultimately prevent motor vehicle crashes, injuries, and deaths. “We are thrilled to be approved by the Ohio Office of Criminal Justice Services,” said Stephanie Lambers, ThinkFirst Trauma Prevention program director for TriHealth. “Our coalition is creating targeted traffic safety education opportunities in Hamilton County;

we can work together to reduce traffic related crashes in our area.” The coalition will continue current key traffic safety campaigns such as: “Click it or Ticket,” “What’s Holding You Back;” and “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over.” The four target areas for traffic safety education for the coalition are restraint-safety belt usage, public awareness regarding impaired driving and safety belt usage, motorcycle safety and fatal crash review. Hamilton County Safe Communities Coalition is comprised of individuals from area agencies, including law enforcement, fire/EMS, hospitals, healthcare, government, non-profit, businesses, and community members/ leaders. The coalition aims to promote community partnerships in traffic safety and ultimately reduce the injuries and fa-

We’ve come a long way, ladies. For more than a few generations, the women in our families have just learned to live with pelvic floor disorders. Many things can cause this disorder, but it’s more common after childbirth — when the pelvic muscles and nerves are weakened. This can lead to embarrassing control issues. Pain. (Not to mention the effect on intimacy.) If that’s you, you’re not alone. And you should know, there’s no need to live with pelvic floor issues anymore. Many women have regained control thanks to The Christ Hospital Center for Pelvic Floor Disorders, one of the only centers in the nation of its kind. Our team of physicians and experts are sensitive to the embarrassment many women feel and are highly specialized, working together to offer new treatments and techniques, including non-invasive options and minimally invasive surgery, to help women find relief.

Do you have a pelvic floor disorder? Take a quick and easy online questionnaire. To speak to a specialist , call 513.585.4800. (Trust us, they’ve heard it all before.)

Bolster resilience at JFS workshop

Learning to help others bounce back after a traumatic experience will be the focus of “Ways to Bolster Resilience in Children and Adults,” a workshop with Donald Meichenbaum, presented by Jewish Family Service 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday, March 20, at Mayerson JCC, 8487 Ridge Road, Cincinnati, Ohio 45236. 6 CEUs are available. Early bird registration is now available for this all-day professional development program which will explore whether resilience is innate or learned, and target ways professionals can help adults and children resolve a traumatic event successfully. “A high percentage of people are able to readjust to life after experiencing a traumatic experience such as a tornado, combat, a robbery, family crisis or sexual assault. However, approximately 20 percent to 30 percent will evidence lingering clinical disorders or adjustment problems including posttraumatic stress disorders, depression and related difficulties,” said Susan Shorr of Symmes Township, cochair of this event with Marcie Bachrach of Blue Ash. “We are excited to bring in Dr. Meichenbaum to teach methods to help victimized individuals persevere and adapt when things go awry, as well as ways to increase resilience on a preventative basis. Dr. Meichenbaum works to help victims survive and survivors thrive.” Meichenbaum, a founder of Cognitive Behavior Therapy, has published extensively and has lectured in every state and worldwide. His presentations are noted for their scholarship practical applications, and humor. Meichenbaum is distinguished professor emeritus, University of Waterloo, Ontario, Canada. He is research director of the Melissa Institute for Violence Prevention and Treatment in Miami, and distinguished visiting professor at the University of Miami, School of Education. In a survey of clinicians, he was voted "one of the 10 most influential psychotherapists of the 20th century," as reported in the American Psychologist. Social workers, counselors, clergy, marriage and family therapists, educators, psychologists, case managers, nurses, chemical dependency counselors, rehabilitation

counselors, attorneys, law enforcement professionals, life coaches, psychiatrists, and physicians are encouraged to attend. Professionals will earn six continuing education units. Professional certificates will be provided for social work, marriage and family therapy, counseling, psychology, teaching, chemical dependency, life coaching, school psychology and rehabilitation counseling. A certificate of completion is

also available. The registration fee includes continental breakfast, lunch and six continuing education units in up to two professional disciplines. Register by March 9 for $99 or $89 for two or more from one agency; March 10-19 the fee is $119, or at the door for $129. This is Jewish Family Service’s 8th annual Miriam O. Smith Educational Series (MOSES) sympo-

sium, which provides an opportunity for professional development as well as offers the community a chance to learn from nationally recognized mental health experts. Jewish Family Service established the series to honor the memory of Miriam O. Smith, a long time social worker at Jewish Family Service who provided extensive individual and family therapy, headed the adoption pro-

gram, and also served as interim director of the agency. For more information or to register, visit or call 766-3352.
