Horse sense

Tim Marshall has more than 40 years experience in training, riding and driving horses, and he wants to pass some of that knowledge onto to local residents. Marshall, the Turner Farm teamster, is teaching three-day courses in an introduction to horse driving. Upcoming classes will be April 9 through April 11 and April 23 through April 25. SEE STORY, A4

The atrium of Horizon Community Church’s new building will feature a coffee shop and fireplace, and was constructed with trusses in the ceiling that were custom made in North Carolina.

It’s been a long journey, but members of Horizon Community Church will soon have a building they can call “home.” The church, which holds worship services at Cincinnati Country Day School, is building its new facility on Church Road in Anderson Township. The project broke ground in July and Trey Smith, building team leader, said the facility should be open by January. The new building will feature an atrium with coffee shop, a large children’s area, administrative offices, multiple fireplaces and plenty of meeting space for church and community functions. Smith said when designing the building, Horizon officials were looking to blend contemporary and traditional needs. “In the end, it’ll be the best of both worlds,” Smith said.

While portions of the building will resemble churches built several decades ago, other parts of Horizon will appear more sleek and contemporary. Horizon began working on building a new facility more than three years ago, when plans began taking shape and the

church was purchasing fill dirt for elevation on the site it purchased. Smith said after all the hard work that’s gone into the project, the congregation is getting anxious to move out of Cincinnati Country Day School and into a home of their own.

Cold beer, hot wings on Great American menu By Amanda Hopkins ahopkins@communitypress.com

Radio personality Bill Cunningham is back in the restaurant business. Cunningham recently opened the Great American Restaurant at 8740 Montgomery Road, the same location of the first Willie’s Sports Cafe which Cunningham opened in 1988. Cunningham said he was “getting a little bored” when his schedule began to wind down in recent years. “I always want to be doing something,” Cunningham said. He bought back two of the Willie’s Sports Cafe locations – one in Mason and one in West Chester Township – in 2009 and saw that the location of Willie’s in Kenwood was opening and decided to start a new restaurant. He said he decided on the name – Great American, a nickname he uses for himself – because the Willie’s Kenwood location is just a

Ursuline advances to Odyssey finals What do you get when girls fall into a land made of candy, meet a seven-foot tall talking gingerbread man, must save Princess Frostine and are attacked by marshmallows? For seven scientific and creative girls from Ursuline Academy, the answer is a trip to Michigan State University to represent their school, city and state at the Odyssey of the Mind, World Finals. On March 13, the Ursuline Academy Odyssey of the Mind Team won the Ohio state championship in Cleveland and will go to the Odyssey of the Mind world finals May 26 through May 29 at Michigan State University. Odyssey of the Mind is an international educational program that provides creative problemsolving opportunities for students from kindergarten through college. Students apply their creativity to solve problems that range from building mechanical devices to presenting their own interpretation of literary classics. They then bring their solutions to competition on the local, state and world level. Thousands of teams from throughout the U.S. and from some 25 other countries participate in the program. The problem in the 2010 Odyssey of the Mind competition required the team to construct six different aircraft to accomplish specific tasks while in flight.

The auction included vacation destinations, tickets to “The Oprah Winfrey Show,” graduation tickets and dinners prepared by gourmet chefs and MND dads. “The excitement for this year’s Grande Gala was evident from the moment guests arrived. Director of the Grande Gala Jackie Siders of

Loveland did an amazing job assembling all the elements that produced such an outstanding event,” said MND director of advancement Sparkle ]. The Grande Gala is MND’s premier fundraiser and benefits each student at Mount Notre Dame. Helping provide tuition assistance, helping make facility improvements and helping ensure MND’s technology is state-of-theart are a few of the ways the Grande Gala impacts Mount Notre Dame. “MND’s Grande Gala is an amazing event which brings together so many members of the MND community,” said president Rita Sturwold. “I am so grateful to our 400 volunteers who contribute their time, talent and creative energy to make this an outstanding friend-raiser and fundraiser and to our guests. While the Gala lasts a few hours, the guests are contributing to a Mount Notre Dame education that impacts our young women for a lifetime.”

Dietz, Cofer lead CCD back to diamond

Indian baseball returns four starters By Anthony Amorini

aamorini@communitypress.com

The graduation of five senior starters at the close of Cincinnati Country Day’s 12-6 campaign in 2009 leaves the Indians with a relatively inexperienced team on the diamond this

spring. A quartet of returning starters led by senior captains Max Dietz (shortstop /pitcher) and Brian Cofer (catcher) will provide CCD with some stability though 24th-year head coach Tim Dunn said he still faces a number of unanswered questions. Alongside Dietz and Cofer, junior infielder Jules Cantor and sophomore

infielder Reeve Hoover are also returning starters for CCD. Junior infielder Tyriqe Wilson and junior Dan Angus (pitcher/outfield) saw varsity playing time in 2009. “We have a good idea who is going to play but we just don’t know where we are going to put them yet,” Dunn said of CCD’s lineup being a work in progress. “A lot of things are unset-

tled so far.” Dietz will be a leader for CCD from both the plate and the mound after posting solid offensive and defensive numbers as a junior last spring. Dietz batted .429 with 24 hits, 21 runs, 16 stolen bases and 12 RBI while carrying a 1.93 ERA through 29 innings pitched with 29 strike outs and a 3-2 record. Alex Dietz, a 2009 grad-

uate and Max’s older brother, led CCD with 26 hits and 28 RBI last spring while batting .542. “It will be tough to replace him,” Dunn said of Alex. “We will see how the season progresses and hopefully everything will be figured out in time for the (postseason).” Cantor contributed 20 hits and 18 RBI as a freshman while batting .488.

Hoover finished with 15 hits, 11 RBI and 10 runs while batting .278. From the mound, Max will likely be No. 1 in the Indians’ pitching rotation. Hoover, Cantor and Angus will also contribute a significant amount of work from the mound, Dunn said. Angus posted a 2.67 ERA last spring through 18.1 innings of work with a 3-0 record and one save.

Moeller to defend state baseball title By Mark Chalifoux mchalifoux@communitypress.com

The goals are the same any year for the Moeller High School baseball team, the returning Division I state champions. “The expectations are always high for us,” head coach Tim Held said. “We want to have a good season and a good GCL season and make another tournament run.” On paper, the Crusaders may be even more talented than the team that won the state championship last spring. “Out in the field, our defense and our hitting is more talented,” Held said. “Our pitching depth is unproven after our first two pitchers, David Whitehead and Robby Sunderman.” Moeller will look to a number of seniors who were on the junior varsity team last year to step up and provide the pitching depth. Among those pitchers are Kevin Brennan, Zach Radcliff and Tyler Grau. Juniors Kevin Brinkman and Alex

SIDELINES Baseball academy

The University of Cincinnati is conducting an All-Star Baseball Academy Ohio College Coaches Camp Wednesday and Thursday, June 9 and 10. The camp is open to all committed baseball players ages 13-18. All instruction will be done by college coaches. All aspects of baseball will be covered and available for each participant. Players can choose a specific skill to work on in the morning sessions and use that skill in the afternoon. Hitting will be the main focus in the afternoon with live batting practice, cage work, bunting and small group mechanical seminars. Cost is $250 per participant. All personal checks should be made out to ASBA. Visa and Master Card are accepted. Registration and credit card payments can be made at www.allstarbaseballacademy.com. .

the Crusaders in 2009. Also back for Moeller is Kevin Thamann hit .342 and had 15 runs batted in last season for the Crusaders. Held said he expects the team to play with a bullseye on its back after winning a state title last spring. “We always feel at

Moeller that people are gunning for us, but coming off a state title, it’s bigger. We’ve dealt with it all offseason and talked about it,” Held said. Held also said he thinks having some guys back from last year’s run will make things easier in the

tournament when the team starts playing big games in front of big crowds. Still, there are enough players on this team who weren’t part of last year’s championship team who are hungry for a title. “The rest of those guys want to win a title of their

own,” Held said. The Greater Catholic League should be difficult, per usual, and the Crusaders also have a difficult nonleague schedule. Developing pitching depth will be instrumental in Moeller’s early season success and Held said the Crusaders should be fun to watch this year. “We play the right brand of baseball. We try to be fundamentally sound, and with our great team speed, we will cover a lot of ground in the outfield. We can hit and pitch a bit, and we’ll be fun to watch on the bases.”

Baseball swings into season for locals Baseball teams from across Ohio are launching into the spring season as the 2010 high school campaign kicks off. Following a fast-paced regular season, teams launch into post-season play May 8 with contenders competing in the state championships June 3-5. Moeller, the defending Division I state champions, starts the season atop Cincinnati’s polls with a number of talented teams chasing the Crusaders. Here’s a look at the local teams:

The Bombers endured three losing streaks of three games or more last season, including two four-game swoons to finish 1214 overall and 6-4 in the GCL. To stave off tough stretches, St. X, which lost eight games last year when scoring six or more runs, will need better starting pitching. The Bombers will rely on a trio of senior hurlers – Drew Hart, Brandon Polking and Tommy White – as well as juniors Conor Gilligan and Mitch Proctor. Offensively, junior catcher Nick Albers will lead the way; last year he he hit .298 with an

The eighth-grade Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy football team celebrates being undefeated this season. The Eagle’s intricate and varied spread offense proved too much for their Miami Valley Conference opponents, and a few larger schools. Speed and execution, as opposed to size, were the hallmarks of the team. Offensive blocking and a stubborn defense added to the team’s success. In each game, CHCA scored more touchdowns than their opponents scored first downs. In front, from left, are (seventh- and eighth-graders) Ayrton Kazee, Tyler Renners, Michael O’Brien, Ennis Tate, Zach Alvarado, Cameron Murray and Cam Kennedy. In second row are Alex Strasser, Justin Sikkema, Mikey Collins, James “Shades” Gravely, Noah Marshall, Michael Lantz, David Bechtold and Nick Delcimmuto. In third row are Connor Kirbabas, Joel Peroz, Matt Overstreet, coaches Ryan Betscher, Danny Stull, Head Coach Chad Leland and Coach Thomas Hunter, Michael Blair, Jacob Brooks and Ryan Leussen. In fourth row are Jonah James, Sam Handelsman, Connor Osborne, Trevor Kirbabas, Michael Schwabe, Josh Eckert, Gabe Vizcaino, Alex Tillman and Ricky Ruehlmann. In fifth row are Payne Vanderwoude, Sam Ellison, Terrence Gholston, Nick Elder, Alex Stevens, Jean Louis Baillely, Christian Willard and Graham Lally. In back are Brandon Nobbs, Nick Marsh, Jacob Halter, Jason Walchle, Nick “Mango” Mangiaracina, Ryan Prescott, Timmy Fuller, Trenton Pfister and Grant Moss.

Budget special commission should get to work The Ohio budget is in trouble. With the wrap up of the last Ohio budget in July, the Budget Planning and Management Commission was created to tackle the 2011 state budget, a budget that many believe will be an even bigger challenge to the state of Ohio than past budgets. With the possibility of a deficit reaching $8 billion, the Commission has quite a bit of work ahead of it. Surprisingly, the Budget Planning and Management Commission has yet to have one meeting. Even with the upcoming budget, the huge deficit and the challenges that lay before the state of Ohio, the Commission has wasted the past nine months and has accomplished nothing. This six-

member bipartisan group has been all talk and no action. These months of inaction mean even less time to come up with solutions for the Michelle fast approachSchneider ing budget. The ability to Community the budget Press guest start process more columnist than a year in advance is a great opportunity to reign in spending and evaluate cuts for the next budget. The special commission is in a position to provide responsible, fiscally conservative suggestions

What are your favorite Opening Day traditions? Do you plan to go this year? “Why go to an Opening Day parade, where I’ll be continuously subjected to some unknown local celebrity perched atop a giant corporate logo, surrounded by drunk, conservative, orthodox meatheads who all think they’re the center of the universe, only to wind up in a stadium plastered with corporate logo’s and full of drunk, conservative, orthodox meatheads who all think they’re the center of the universe, when I can stay home, watch it on TV without the drunk, conservative, orthodox meatheads, and limited commercial interruption?” N.A.B. “I can remember in the ‘70s that we used to listen to all of the Reds’ games on WLW, and although we never attended an Opening Day game, we did go to a lot of the home games. For some reason, we have pretty much lost interest in baseball – that’s probably a result of aging and the nasty stuff that is going on in the world that distracts us from some entertainment. But our Opening Day tradition was only to listen to the game, and enjoy it. Bring back Pedro Borbon, Davie Concepcion, Johnny Bench, Pete Rose, Joe Morgan, and all those guys and maybe we’ll get interested again!” B.B. “I always plant onion sets on Opening Day. It gets my vegetable garden going and growing. I usually go to the game, however this year I have Final Four tickets.” J.J. “We don’t have any Opening Day traditions which we follow. When Opening Day is here we know that the lazy hazy days of summer are not too far off!! Yea!!! Hope the Reds win the opener.

Although it is my intent to beat Shannon in May’s primary election, I will not take office until January 2011, when almost all of the critical time to do something has slipped away, leaving legislators scrambling. Recently, the Ohio Senate has announced that they will be taking the entire month of April off.

Members of this committee should be ashamed that they are perpetuating a culture of overspending and waste by burying their heads in the sand. It is this type of inaction that has given birth to the modern Tea Party movement. It is a good thing that the Tea Parties have begun, too, because it is they who will send the incumbents in Columbus back home and replace them with dynamic leaders who are not afraid to make tough decisions

Finish school on high note Believe it or not the school year is almost over. Disappointed in how your children have done so far, take heart – you still have time to turn things around. Sit down and talk with your child (separately, if you have more than one). Ask them to tell you about each class and each grade-good or bad. Listen attentively. You will find out how the child feels about school, about the teacher, about himself. You may learn some reasons why they got the grades they did. If you have more than one child, don’t compare or set them up to compete. If you are unhappy with the report card, try not to get angry, punish or belittle the child. These are all useless attitudes or behaviors. Here is a formula to help children finish the school year on a high note: Know what you want. Help your child formulate their intentions for the rest of the year in the affirmative and preferably in the present tense. For example, “I will get a B in math,” as an affirmative statement, as opposed to “I don’t want to fail math again.” You might want to make an appointment with the teacher to share this plan. Find out what you are getting.

Students should get weekly feedback from their teacher on how they are doing. I am amazed at the number of students and parents that are Michael “surprised” by a White failing grade on report card. Community aWeren’t the 12 Press guest missed assigncolumnist ments, 40 percent quiz scores, and incomplete projects, warning signs? Teachers also have a responsibility to give regular feedback to students and parents. Change what you do during the rest of the year until you get what you want. Design a plan and adjust it based upon the weekly teacher feedback. “I’ll study math for 20 minutes every night.” Do it and get feedback. Redesign, if necessary, and do it again with more feedback. Repeat the cycle-redesign-do-get feedback-until you get what you want – in this case a “B in math.” It’s usually during this phase that students come to realize they are spending too much time with television, video games and Face Book. Today’s students watch televisionsix to seven hours daily,

Disappointed in how your children have done so far, take heart – you still have time to turn things around. or 42 to 49 hours per week. Add to that the number of hours spent watching videos, or playing video games, and the average kindergarten graduate has already spent more than 6,000 hours in front of a television – more time than it takes to obtain a bachelor’s degree. Know what you want. Change what you are doing until you get what you want! For my own family, this has been a very helpful school formula and also easy to remember. In fact, every time we drive past a certain chain of restaurants that have the good sense to use the abbreviation KFC, both my kids, now in college, moan, roll their eyes, and say “Don’t worry dad, we’re doing fine!” Michael White is a professional development associate with the Leadership and Learning Center and the director of Educational Consulting Services, an educational organization in Cincinnati.

Moeller students give team an extra lift By Mark Chalifoux mchalifoux@communitypress.com

The Moeller High School basketball program produced yet another final four team and had another final appearance. Much has been said about the team’s stars, players like Griffin McKenzie, Charlie Byers, Alex Barlow and Josh Morelock. Not as much as been said for another crucial part of Moeller’s continued success, the raucous student section. Moeller sold more than 700 student tickets for the game, which is astonishing for a school with less than 900 students enrolled. “It speaks to what our school is about,” Moeller Athletic Director Barry Borman said. “We talk about the Moeller family and so many of our kids want to be a part of this experience. It speaks to the fact that they really feel a part of it and want to contribute in any way they can.” For Moeller students not on the team, that meant showing up as soon as the doors opened and screaming and cheering for most of the game. The student section has the traditional cheers but weaves in more creative chants. Against Mentor in the semifinals, the Moeller students wasted little time before chanting “Just like football,” in reference to a 45-7 Crusaders win over Mentor on the gridiron. The Moeller students also began chanting “We’ve got Jesus” to the public school Mentor. It’s difficult to know whether the stu-

organization and that it helps to have an all-male atmosphere. “It lets guys go crazier,” Suter said. As soon as those words came out of his mouth, the student section started chanting “Flip! Flip! Flip!”, almost as if to prove Suter’s point. Suter obliged the crowd with a not quite flawlessly executed flip. He said it was only the second time all season he performed the feat. The student section is policed by administrators to prevent profanity and unruliness, and Borman said he’s received countless remarks from people outside the school about Moeller’s crowds. “People are amazed at the support we bring to all of our events,” he said. “It’s not only true of us but of most of the schools in our league. I think we really exhibit that family spirit.” He said that support and the expectations for success have contributed to Moeller’s basketball tradition. Having such a strong student showing is certainly appreciated by the players. “It’s beautiful,” junior guard Charlie Byers said. “It was crazy. I like how our fans support us.” Junior Alex Barlow said players from past state final four teams sent him text messages, telling him to just enjoy the experience. “They said it would be one of the greatest basketball experiences of my life.” Senior guard Josh Morelock agreed. “The atmosphere was crazy, it helps get the adrenaline pumping,” he said after the semifinals win. “It was definitely the greatest basketball experience in my life.”

Senior McKenzie stands out in semis By Mark Chalifoux mchalifoux@communitypress.com

Much has been said about Moeller’s senior forward, 6-foot-9 inch Griffin McKenzie, but the Crusaders received a big boost this season from another senior starter – guard Josh Morelock. Morelock came up big several times for the Crusaders, but had no bigger game than his performance in the state semifinals over-

time win over Mentor. Morelock, a Sharonville resident, scored 17 points in the 66-59 Crusaders victory, his second-highest output of the season. “I’m always ready to take the shot if it’s there and I just let it go like I always do and it was falling for me,” he said. Head coach Carl Kremer called Morelock one of the smartest players the Crusaders have and several members of the media

praised the job Morelock did defensively in the game’s waning moments against Mentor’s all-state guard Cole Krizancic. He scored only 13 points in the loss, more than 12 below his average. “He was tough to stay in front of, but I didn’t go for his fakes and we got the job done,” Morelock said. Kremer said he was happy to see a senior put on a show like that on the big stage that is the state final four.

“He was fun to watch,” Kremer said. “He’s such a talented kid and he really let it go. All year when we’ve needed him, he’s come up for us and he’s a terrific player.” Morelock said it was tough for him to describe the feeling after the game. “It’s amazing,” he said after the win. “It’s my last chance to put it out there for my school so to be able to do that for my team is a great thing. I can’t even

describe it.” Kremer said he was happy for the entire Morelock family. “I’m ecstatic for him and for his family,” he said. “His parents have had to drive him around to practices and games for most of his career and for them to get to watch that moment and have that moment is special. I want every kid to leave here feeling they lived out a dream and he’ll have that for the rest of his life.”

Moeller senior Josh Morelock has been one of the unsung heroes for the Crusaders this season. He had one of the hot hands in the state semifinals win over Mentor.

Celebrating the destruction of a bully Most of us, or our children, have at some time experienced being bullied. A bully seeks to intimidate, induce fear, taunt, or control someone considered weaker than they. What a relief it is when a bully is overcome or deposed. Death is a bully! All though our lives it elicits fear in us. Like a threatening vulture awaiting its time, the specter of death (death anxiety) sits on the branches of the tree of life. Its presence leads us to have unhealthy fears about dying, losing people we love, or being deprived of everything we enjoy and value. In fact, the fear of death paralyzes some people so much it can lead to an overcautious living of life (life anxiety). “Why love anyone if someday I’ll lose them?” “Why try to enter fully into life if it will someday come to a screeching halt?” whis-

pers fearful minds too afraid of the bully. A cartoon depicts the opening to a dark cave and a set of two eyes peering out of the darkFather Lou ness. Guntzelman The caption Perspectives u n d e r n e a t h says: “If you’re very careful today, nothing good or bad will happen to you.” The bottom line of Christianity is our faith in the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the deposing of the bully Death. Paul states the audaciousness of our faith, “For if Christ did not rise, then your faith is futile and your sins have never been forgiven... and we, of all people, are the most to be pitied,” (1 Corinthians 15:17-19)

Easter is the day we Christians celebrate Christ’s rising and his promise that we will rise, too. So we sing our Alleluias and celebrate. We take to heart the advice early Christians gave that it’s not right to be anything but joyful on Easter Day. We can go on fostering our fondest dreams of life and love, knowing our lives will eventually be transformed for the better and forever. The funeral liturgy affirms: “In him rose from the dead, our own hope of resurrection dawned. And now, the sadness of death gives way to the bright promise of immortality.” Poet John O’Donohue echoes the same point: “Regardless of how we configure the eternal, the human heart continues to dream of a state of wholeness, a place where everything comes together, where loss is made good, where

blindness will transform into vision, where damage will be made whole, where the clenched question will open in the house of surprise, where the travails of a life’s journey will enjoy a homecoming.” How timidly we state our triumphs and good health by the superstition of knocking on wood. We knock because it allegedly drowns out our boast. We fear that it we enjoy life too much the dreaded bully will return and wreak havoc on us. It’s as though we find it dangerous to hope for too much. Scripture does not yield to such superstition. Since God destroyed the biggest bully of ours, death, scripture doesn’t knock on wood. It has no hesitation in announcing it loud and clear. In fact, scripture taunts the bully of Death that still frightens God’s people so much.

It shouts: “Death is swallowed up in victory! “So where, O Death, is your victory? Where, O Death, is your sting?” (1 Corinthians 15:54-55) Furthermore, some people, such as the mystic poet Rilke, see Death being so totally vanquished it now serves us – almost as a friend. He writes, “Death is our friend precisely because it brings us into absolute and passionate presence with all that is here, that is natural, that is love. … This life always says Yes and No simultaneous. Death is the true Yea-sayer. It stands before eternity and says only: Yes.” Father Lou Guntzelman is a Catholic priest of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati.

Protect elderly parents against telemarketers h i m , “They got me to give them my credit card number and then I tried to call and Howard Ain cancel and Hey Howard! they said there’s no cancellation policy.” So Doug called the company himself, but was also told he couldn’t cancel without paying a substantial penalty – $699. The company sold Adrian six magazines for $49.90 a month for a total cost of nearly $1,000.

Despite laws designed to protect them, seniors can still end up signing up for items they neither want nor need. So it’s important for their children to keep an eye on things. The company charged his father’s credit card before receiving a written confirmation from Adrian. Doug immediately disputed the charge and then canceled the credit card altogether to prevent any future charges. With no credit card to charge, the company next sent a bill to Adrian – a bill for nearly $155. Then the magazines started arriving. He received

I called the company and was told his account is now canceled and he has a zero balance.

two issues of “Golf Digest” and one issue of “The Family Handyman.” Doug immediately called the publishers of these two magazines and said, “They were very upset about this. They have canceled the subscriptions.” Doug said the publishers told him they’ve received similar complaints about

other such magazine sales firms and they try not to accept business from them. Doug said this is a lesson for everyone. “Go back and check their credit cards… and work with your parents,” he said. Doug said his father not only didn’t sign anything for these magazines, he should never have been called by that telemarketer because he’s on the national Do Not Call Registry. The company in question has an “F” rating from the Better Business Bureau due to numerous complaints.

As the nation’s population continues to get older, it’s more important than ever for children to look after their elderly parents. A local man learned this after finding his father had ordered magazines he neither needs nor wants. Doug Herberger of Forest Park keeps watch on his father, Adrian, who is nearly 80 years old.

Entertain with a parade of Easter recipes Remember the request for the San Antonio parish pizza recipe from Mike, a Glendale reader? This church, located at the corner of Queen City and White Street, has a long and storied history. I thought my chances were slim to none that I’d get such a recipe, considering it was from the 1960s. I should have known

better, as two readers came through. Tony Caminiti, who had no association with the parish but who had the cookbook, and Terrie Evans, the sister of Buddy LaRosa who is a member of the parish and who told wonderful stories to me about the parish and this annual festival where the pizza making took place.

“Buddy still brings bread in to bake every week and we sell it for $2 a loaf,� she told me. (I’m not surprised – Buddy is just that kind of caring person). This helps augment the parish’s needs. I’m sharing the recipe but do know that the dough is a large quantity one. Feel free to use your own dough, or purchase it, and use the homemade topping. I wish those of you who celebrate Easter the best ever. I hope you have a day filled with family, friends and food. And whether your table is abundantly laid out or in a more meager fashion, remember that it’s not just about the food but who shares it with you, so if you have a neighbor or someone who may be alone, give them a call, send a card or better yet, invite them to share your blessings.

Pretty Easter nests

Mix yeast, sugar and 2 cups of water together. Set aside until frothy, about 15 minutes. Mix flour with salt and make a well in the center, add shortening, yeast mixture and remaining water. Mix well. Let rise, knead dough and let rise again until doubled. Break off a piece of

Topping for one pizza

Be careful when you cook this, as it sputters up. Use a nonstick pan if you have it and lower heat so mixture doesn’t burn. 2 tablespoons olive oil 1 large can crushed tomatoes (Terrie says use 28-oz. size) 3 chopped garlic cloves (I would use large) Fresh basil chopped Fresh parsley chopped Grated Parmesan Cook olive oil, garlic, and tomatoes until liquid is reduced and mixture thickens.

A young girl taunted by her older sister tries to find love and purpose as an adult. Will a chance meeting with a troubled young boy help her find that purpose? The play is written by Fred L. Rothzeid and directed by Charles J. Goetz. Rothzeid is a New York transplant who developed a passion for writing poetry while in college. After receiving an MBA he discovered he had a knack for composing songs late one night while taking a break from checking financial statements. He wrote a cabaret act,

Tips for getting your plants off to a good start If you’re thinking about starting seeds indoors this winter, good for you! Here are a few tips to help make you a bit more successful with your seed starting adventure. First of all, you’ll need the right seed starting supplies: 1) Use a soil-less potting mix or seed starting mix. This mix is extremely important as it actually helps to hold moisture for the new seedlings yet is airy and allows them to dry properly with less chance of dampening off, or rotting.

Some mixes may include a slow release fertilizer to help feed the seedlings very slowly and gently as they grow. Be sure to pre-moisten your potting mix before planting the seeds. 2) Something to grow your seedlings in – small clay or plastic pots, Jiffy Cubes, peat pots, Cow Pots, or trays with cell packs are wonderful for starting your seeds. 3) Some type of shop light with regular fluorescent tubes will be needed to help supplement the much-

needed sunlight to keep your seedlings from stretching. Remember to keep the lights within 3 inches of the tops of the new seedlings. You may need to keep the lights on 12-14 hours a day, even in sunnier windows. 4) A misting bottle. This is one of the best ways to water your new seedlings, especially when they’re very young. Misting the soil is not so invasive and is easier to control the water flow. 5) A small inexpensive

fan, and trust me, this fan is one of the key ingredients for starting seeds indoors. Placed away from the seedlings, it provides constant air movement around the plants, which helps reduce disease and rotting, and it also helps to promote stockier plants. And here’s the most important thing to remember: Read the back of the seed packs for additional germinating information (do the seeds need to be covered, spacing, soil temps – generally 70-75 degrees

during the day, etc.?), as well as how long it takes for seed germination and growing time before transplanting outdoors. Count backwards from our frost free date (May 15 or so), and that’s when you should start those seeds indoors. For tomatoes it takes about six weeks (peppers eight weeks), which means starting time would be right around late March/early April. Remember, it’s always better to start your seeds a

little late, rather than way too e a r l y. Have fun Ron Wilson growing y o u r In the garden plants from seeds, indoors. Talk to you next time, in the garden.

Somerset, Kentucky’s Premiere Inn Located Just Minutes from Lake Cumberland

There is a joke among friends here, “It’s a Phoenix that has risen from the ashes. ”When Charles and Allison Hahn Sobieck purchased the property at 502 North Main Street (in Somerset, Kentucky), there was a lot of work to be done, to say the least. With the vision of a B & B and a home in ruins, there were little choices. The dilapidated structure was removed, then reconstructed as it had been in the 1850’s. It’s a brand new home. A bit of an unusual concept for a bed and breakfast. “We reconstructed the home from scratch. This gave us the benefit of designing every amenity possible along the way, ”said Allison Sobieck, owner. Every room is equipped with many amenities you don’t often find in a traditional bed and breakfast, but rather a fine hotel. Every room has a full sized closet with a pair of micro-fiber robes hanging in them, 400- count Egyptian cotton sheets, cable TV with DVD players, queen sized beds, and a host of other things. For instance, 2 rooms have gas fireplaces and 3 rooms have whirlpool tubs. We even offer many add on amenities such as massage, dinner, flowers, etc…

The rooms are only half of the reason to come to The Doolin House. Owners Charles and Allison just happen to both be chefs. Some of the breakfast specialties include Caramel Banana French Toast and Southern Eggs Benedict (2 fried green tomatoes topped with 2 slices of smoked bacon, 2 eggs over easy and Hollandaise). Chuck is usually in charge of breakfast and tries to do new and different things every day. Chef Chuck pointed out, “It’s fun to experiment with breakfast. It’s the one meal that encompasses all foods. It’s perfectly acceptable to see smoked salmon or a pork cutlet at the breakfast table. ”For those in no rush to rise and shine, breakfast in bed is served at no additional charge. When you need a weekend get away that’s not too far from home or you are planning your summer vacation to beautiful Lake Cumberland, remember that The Doolin House Bed and Breakfast is only a phone call away.
