Indian Hill High School senior Ben Langhorst displays some “Playbill” programs from New York productions he attended in New York. Langhorst was selected to participate in a summer workshop at the Tisch School of the Arts at New York University.

It was while performing in the musical “Little Mary Sunshine” in the sixth grade that Ben Langhorst first got the acting bug. Now a senior at Indian Hill High School, Langhorst, 17, was chosen to attend a summer workshop at the Tisch School of the Arts, which is part of New York University. Specifically, Langhorst participated in the Experimental Theater Workshop, where he was instructed on stage movement, monologues and speech. “We got to experience different acting techniques and ways to approach scenes,” said Langhorst, who is a resident of Kenwood. Langhorst was among 150 stu-

dents chosen from among 1,000 applicants to attend the summer workshops. After he graduates, Langhorst said he hopes to attend the Tisch School of the Arts. He plans to focus on theater and acting. “I like engaging with the audience,” he said. In addition to his involvement with the theater department and choir at Indian Hill High School, Langhorst is also involved with the Cincinnati Actors Studio and the Know Theatre of Cincinnati. He recently composed the music for a one-act play performed by the studio. His mother, Janet, is a substitute teacher for Indian Hill schools. Langhorst said his favorite theatrical production is “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf.”

‘Bloom’ set to blossom Aug. 21 By Rob Dowdy

Stepping Stones Center is once again preparing to host “Bloom,” the non-profit’s biggest fundraising event of the year. “Bloom” is a tented garden party that will once again be conducted at the center’s Indian Hill location. The party features live music, dinner by the bite, cocktails, live and silent auctions and a raffle.

Approximately 20 food donors and about a dozen corporate sponsors will be contributing to the fundraiser. Theresa Ciampone, one of the organizers of the event, said the biggest difference from last year’s fundraiser is the attention and respect paid to Kay Pettengill, an Indian Hill resident who was a key fundraiser for Stepping Stones as well as a board member. Ciampone said Pet-

tengill’s efforts were “vital” the center’s success, and she’s being honored as the honorary chairwoman of the event. While one volunteer will

This year’s “Bloom” event, like last year’s, will be conducted along the lake at Stepping Stones Center in Indian Hill.

“(Latin) is a gateway to any field a person wants to work in.”

Andrea Weis Latin teacher at Indian Hill Middle School

Latin classes at the University of Georgia. In fact, shortly after moving to the Tristate, a connection from Dean’s past provided a job opportunity for Weis. One of Dean’s former Latin teachers was an acquaintance of Sherwin Little, a Latin teacher at Indian Hill High School. “The stars aligned,” said Weis, 42, about her employment with Indian Hill Schools, which began in 1993. Dean, 43, has taught at Summit for 12 years. However, their passion for Latin culture goes beyond just the classroom. “There are so many aspects to the field you can go in,” said Dean. Dean said a study of Latin can range anywhere from a study of the language and literature to Latin art and architecture. “There is something there for everybody,” he said.


Husband and wife, Larry Dean and Andrea Weis, both teach Latin courses in area schools. Dean teaches Latin at Summit Country Day School, while Weis is a teacher at Indian Hill Middle School. Both said an interest in Latin was encouraged by their families as well as by instructors at their schools. “(Latin) is a gateway to any field a person wants to

work in,” said Weis. Both Dean and Weis are involved with the National Junior Classical League, an organization which promotes the study of Latin.

Trip to South Africa inspires teacher By Forrest Sellers


Indian Hill High School teacher Sarah Hadley described a recent trip to South Africa as “eye-opening.” “We have preconceived notions of what Africa is like,” said Hadley. “Much of Africa is Westernized with shopping malls, plazas and restaurants.” However, Hadley, who will begin teaching at Indian Hill High School this school year after previously teaching at the middle school, did visit some of the more exotic locations in Africa. She went on a safari where she had an opportunity to see elephants, hippos, giraffes and rhinoceros up close. Hadley said an elephant almost charged the vehicle in which she was riding. She and her fiancee also attended the World Cup. “It was neat to see the countries coming together to celebrate the sport of soccer,” she said. “There was an intense excitement.” During the games she said she had an opportunity to meet people from all over the world. At one of the games she talked to someone from Nigeria, while at other games she struck up conversations with visitors from Holland and Japan. A visit to the Apartheid Museum gave her an appreciation for the strides South Africa has made. “I was very impressed to see how far the country has unified since apartheid ended 16 years ago,” she said. Hadley will begin teaching advanced placement psychology this year, but she will also continue to provide instruction on history. She will teach Nonwestern World History. South Africa will be one of the countries she covers. “I hope to inspire my students to be interested in the rest of the world and explore other cultures,” she said.

Braves look for better season in 2010

By Mark Chalifoux

Other teams to watch

BRIEFLY First glance at fall sports

The Indian Hill Journal is taking a look at fall sports by putting the spotlight on high school teams as a first glance at the season, with more coverage to come on other schools. Expect to see all-inclusive football coverage on Aug. 25.

This week in Indian Hill sports

• Indian Hill girls’ golf team shot a 395 to beat Taylor’s 423, Wyoming’s 452 and Cincinnati Country Day’s 509, Aug. 9. Indian Hill’s Pari Keller shot six over par 77. On Aug. 12, the girls’ team lost to Mount Notre Dame 178-194. Keller shot seven over par 42 on the front nine at Bellwood. • The boys’ golf team placed second in the Batavia/Madeira Invitational at the Vineyard, Aug. 10, shooting a 311. Indian Hill’s Michael Sewell medaled with a 76, and Jesse Terbrueggen with a 76.

This week in Cincinnati Country Day sports

• The boys’ golf team placed third with a 349 in the Miami Valley Conference Players’ Championship at Miami Whitewater, Aug. 10. The team also shot a 165, beating Taylor’s 188, Aug. 11. CCD’s Kyle Pruis shot 1 over par 37 on the front nine at Shawnee.

• The Moeller soccer team returns seven starters and should be one of the better teams in the Greater Catholic League. The Crusaders are led by returning First-Team All-GCL player Jeffrey Fuller, who will be a junior this season. Luke Guju was a First-Team All-GCL defender in 2009 and will anchor the defense for Moeller in 2010. Luke Agricola is a returning Second-Team All-GCL player for the Crusaders. the area, which is one reason the 2009 team didn’t have a winning record. The 2010 Braves again face a tough schedule, starting with a difficult conference slate. “There were so many good young players in the CHL last year so it should be an interesting season,” Mills said. “Reading has a very good team, Madeira has a lot

of good young players, Wyoming has a good team and Finneytown is always a good rival for us. We will have to be pretty focused in every league game.” In non-conference action, Indian Hill has games against five Division I schools and games against Batavia, Tipp City and Dayton Carroll.

CCD should contend with core group By Nick Dudukovich

Replacing two all-city players is never easy, but Cincinnati Country Day women’s soccer coach Theresa Hirschauer is optimistic. Hirschauer is able to maintain such a disposition because of the “core players” returning for the 2010 campaign. The Indians will have six starters returning to the team for the upcoming season. Among them are midfielders Alexandra McInturf and Jamie Huelskamp. “They’re our senior captains and have been a big part of this program,” Hirschauer said. “We’re excited for their senior years.” Hirschauer, who is in her 21st year as coach, will also be able to count on the senior leadership of Blythe Gross Hutton in goal. “It’s nice to have a sen-

ior goalie,” she said. “You need someone to make plays... It’s huge having a goalie back there you can count on because it can help you control the game.” Hutton should get help on defense from Alexis Victor of Anderson Township and Ari Knue of Indian Hill. Knue was both allleague and all-city during her sophomore year. Junior Sirena Isadore of Colerain Township will also return to the squad and join McInturf and Huelskamp as midfielders. The upcoming season will be a big test for Isadore, who battled injuries during most of 2009. The Indians will rely on the play of its midfield to

Instead, many girls will get the opportunity to put the ball in the net. “I think we’ll be spread-

This week in Moeller sports

• The boys’ golf team placed second with a 286 in the Westerville Central Invitational, Aug. 12. Moeller’s Andrew Dorn shot six under par 66 at The Lakes. The golf team also placed second with a 300 in the Anderson Invitational, Aug. 12. Moeller’s Mason Eckley shot a 72.

ing out on scoring. We should have three or four girls scoring 10 goals.” Hirschauer said. “We’ll be diverse in terms of how we score.” The returning talent leads Hirschauer to believe that CCD could repeat last year’s success when the Indians finished 11-5-1. However, the veteran coach knows it won’t be

easy. “We will need to stay healthy and count on some younger players to earn varsity experience,” Hirschauer said. “We will play a very competitive schedule with the likes of Mariemont, Madeira, Wyoming, Indian Hill, along with other strong Miami Valley Conference teams.”

Other teams to watch

This week in Mount Notre Dame sports

• The golf team beat Indian Hill 178-194, Aug. 12.

This week in CHCA sports

• The boys’ golf team placed fifth with a 365 in the MVC Players Championship at Miami Whitewater, Aug. 10.

Free fishing day

The Hamilton County Park District will offer a free fishing day at Lake Isabella on Monday, Aug. 30. Anglers may fish from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. at no charge. Visitors are asked to stop by the boathouse to pick up their free fishing ticket before they start to fish. Lake Isabella offers a 28-acre fishing lake with an outdoor fishing pier and a full-service boathouse with tackle and bait specials. Rowboats are also available for rental. Lake Isabella is located at 10174 Loveland-Madeira Road in Loveland. A valid Hamilton County Park District Motor Vehicle Permit ($5 annual; $2 daily) is required to enter the parks.

challenge for the Braves, however, will be the team’s lack of size. “Physically, we’re not a very big team,” Mees said. “If we play a team that’s bigger, the question will be can we compensate with good speed and good possession. We certainly won’t win any height awards.” He said he’s really enthused with his team at this point and is excited to start the season. “Practice got off to a good start,” he said. “I think we possess the ball well and play at a nice good pace. We should be a fun team to watch.”

The Indian Hill High School boys’ soccer team faced the 2009 season with the daunting task of replacing 14 graduating seniors. The Braves faced a strong schedule with a relatively inexperienced team, and the 2010 Braves should be a little more seasoned. “We’re hoping to do better than we did last year,” head coach Bill Mees said. “We took it on the chin in some games, but we gained a lot of experience so we should be better.” Indian Hill traditionally plays one of the toughest schedules in

“We have a pretty aggressive schedule,” Mees said. “There’s no one we can take for granted.” Indian Hill has a talented team, led by senior midfielders Jackson Kirk and Eric Sahlfeld and senior striker Alex Sneider. “Those three guys have been playing varsity since their sophomore season so we will look to them to step it up for us,” Mees said. “I think we have very good team chemistry this season, and guys are definitely willing to work hard. I’m liking the attitude and the approach to the game so far.” Mees said the team is determined and focused and is a team that has a lot of potential. One big

Indian Hill had some talented young players in 2009, including Kaeli Flaska and Katie Markesbery, who both made first-team All-CHL. Flaska was among the conference leaders in scoring in 2009 and she led the Braves with 32 points. Markesbery was one of the top goalkeepers in the CHL in 2009 as a junior. Sophomore Elizabeth Dammeyer and junior Maddie Slattery are two returning all-conference players, along with Jeannette Jinkinson and Elizabeth Slattery. Indian Hill starts the season on Aug. 24 at Clark Montessori. • The Ursuline Academy soccer team should be strong in 2009 as the Lions return six players from the 2009 team that went 11-5-1 and finished second in the Girls’ Greater Cincinnati League.

Ursuline's returners are junior goalkeeper Erika Wolfer, seniors Gabby Hausfeld, Brynne Kelly, Katie Ford, Alexa Fiehrer and sophomore Michele Christy. Two promising newcomers to watch will be juniors Morgan Geiger and Lana Bonekemper.

St. Ursula golf looks strong for 2010 season By Mark Chalifoux

The St. Ursula Academy golf team was one of the best Division I teams in the state in 2009 and not much will change this fall. “I think we should be good,” head coach Mark Hannahan said. “We return three of the girls who played in the state tournament for us last year so we have some good, experienced players.” Leading the way for the Bulldogs is senior Katie Wooliver (Anderson Township), who had a 39.33

average in 2009. Ellen Reinhold (Loveland) is another senior standout who averaged a 40.9 in 2009. Junior Madeline Meiners (Evendale) is the third returning state player, as the junior averaged a 41 in 2009. The varsity team returns two more strong players in senior Emily Nimrock (Loveland) and junior Chloe Williams (Indian Hill). “They have the potential to be one of the best teams St. Ursula has ever had,” Hannahan said. “All five of those girls are very compet-

itive and talented. All the girls have worked hard in the offseason and played in a lot of tournaments so there’s no reason to doubt that they can be just as good as the team last year.” The Bulldogs finished third in the state in 2009, one stroke behind secondplace finisher Lakota West. Mason was the 2009 state champion. “Both of those teams return a lot of the players who helped them accomplish those feats,” Hannahan said. “I know Ursuline will be strong this year and

that Sycamore has a very good team as well.” He said the key for the Bulldogs would be in the mental part of the game. “All of these girls have good golf swings and have worked hard on their games for many years. They are all capable of shooting in the mid-to-low 70s on any course on any given day so the focus and mental toughness is what’s important,” Hannahan said. Hannahan also said he’s looking forward to the start of the 2010 golf season. “We have a great group

of girls who get along and have fun together. It’s an honor and a pleasure to coach them,” he said. “They play good golf but also know how to relax and

have fun, because it is a game after all. It’s a great group of parents as well and I’m very excited and looking forward to the start of the season eagerly.”

MND tennis is set, ready to reload By Mark Chalifoux

The Mount Notre Dame tennis team had a banner season in 2009, going 20-0 in the regular season and finishing second in the state. The 2010 Cougars tennis team will have a different look as they graduated 11 seniors from the 2009 team, but MND should still be a strong team. “I think we’re going to be competitive,” head coach Judy Dennis said. “We will have two seniors this season who will add great leadership but we will miss that experience those 11 girls had.” The two seniors stepping into the leadership roles are Carla Becker, who has been in the program since she

was a freshman, and Stephanie Lutz. “There’s no doubt in my mind that they will step up and be great leaders,” Dennis said. “Carla especially knows what the program is about and will contribute leadership wise and tennis-wise.” On the court, the Cougars return three varsity players. Brooke Dennis, Sandy Niehaus and Sydney Landers will be some of the standouts for MND. Dennis was 7-0 playing No. 2 singles for MND in 2009 and Landers was 4-0 playing No. 3 singles. Niehaus was 9-0 playing No. 2 singles. Dennis was also 10-0 playing doubles. “They will be our top players and I’m really expecting them to help us win some big matches,” Judy Dennis said. “I think

we can surprise some teams that may be overlooking us.” She said she expects the team to be a cohesive unit and to have a really solid season. “I think we can pull out some big wins and have a good season, even if we have to do a little rebuilding,” she said. Dennis, who considers the teams to beat this year to be Lakota West, Lakota East and Ursuline Academy, said the team’s commitment has helped the program make the recent jump to the next level. “The girls are really committed to the game and for a lot of our girls, it’s not just a seasonal game for them. I’m very pleased with their work over the summer,” she said.

She also said she’s excited to get the season started with a fun group of girls. “I have a passion for MND and a passion for the sport and to these kids,” she said. “They are so much fun and the team chemistry is a big part of our success.”

CHCA boys feature talent, experience By Mark Chalifoux

The Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy boys’ soccer team should have a good team in 2010 as the Eagles roster is loaded with talented returning players. The Eagles do start the season with a few injury problems as two of the better players for CHCA, Craig McGinlay and Brian Bernet, will miss the start of the season due to injury. Neither is expected to miss considerable playing time. “If we can get healthy we should have a pretty good year,” CHCA head

coach George Stinson said. “We have a mature group coming back.” That group will be led by senior midfielder and team captain Andrew Amend. “He’s a touch tackler and works incredibly hard and has one of the highest work rates on the team,” Stinson said. Jack McIver will be another standout for CHCA. “He’s a very athletic midfielder with great ball skills,” Stinson said. Jeremy Smith, a talented defender, will run the defense. Junior Peter Riewald is a forward Stinson described as “really active and productive and a good scorer.” McGinlay is another key

player for CHCA as the everything runs through the junior midfielder, according to Stinson. Junior Jacob Marsh is one of the fastest kids on the team and is another talented returning player for the Eagles. Stinson said the 2010 Eagles, when healthy, would be among the top teams he’s had at CHCA. CHCA plays a difficult schedule, including a tough MVC slate and games against Columbus Bishop Watterson Mariemont, Wyoming, Springfield Catholic Central and Dayton Christian. Stinson said he’s ready to get the 2010 season started.

Whether city or suburbs, litter bugs everyone

I enjoy working in Cincinnati and take pride in the major strides we have made in the city’s development. I also take pride in living in the beautiful community of Wyoming. There is an underlying problem that no one wants to talk about which is not only in downtown Cincinnati, but in our local communities, as well. That problem is litter. It can start out innocently enough. Someone attempts to throw away a piece of trash, like a gum wrapper or coffee cup and they miss the trash can. Or they throw their cigarette butt on the ground thinking it’s not litter. They may also leave litter behind because either they don’t realize they did or they assume someone else will take care of it. The unfortunate fact is that litter invites more litter. Once litter starts to accumulate along a road or in a park people are more likely to keep littering. We can’t keep assuming that someone else will take care of this problem. We all need to understand that littering is unacceptable, inappropriate and just plain

wrong. Not only is littering wrong it’s illegal and actually costs all of us money. Consider the facts: • Litter Barb Wriston- cleanup costs Ruddy the U.S. almost Community $11.5 billion year, with Press guest each businesses paycolumnist ing $9.1 billion. Governments, schools, and other organizations pick up the remainder. • A recent Keep America Beautiful study found that litter in a community decreases property values by 7 percent. • Litter can also hurt Cincinnati’s economy by discouraging new businesses from opening in the city. • Littering is illegal in Ohio, with fines up to $500 and even jail time. Keep Cincinnati Beautiful is taking proactive steps to head off the city’s litter problem by launching a new litter prevention education campaign.

Last week’s question:

With a new poll showing support sliding for Ohio’s smoking ban, with Kentucky counties considering a ban, how effective are such bans?

“Interesting that Kentucky is considering a smoking ban, while some people in Ohio are trying to have the ban rescinded. “I love the smoking ban – there are so many places I go now that I would not go when they were smoke-filled. “And there are Kentucky establishments I avoid, because they are still smoke-filled. I hope the current Ohio policy stays in effect, as is!” J.S.B. “I will not patronize any establishment that allows smoking where I am going to sit and eat. Such patronage usually lasts an

leads to road kill! • Place a bag in your car to collect personal trash (or recyclables) instead of tossing them. • At home, secure the lids on your trash and recycling containers, especially when you set them out on collection day. • If you smoke, never throw your cigarette butts on the ground. Cigarette butts constitute a large part of existing litter and they contaminate our water, soil and threaten the health of animals. • Get involved in a community clean up. Keep Cincinnati Beautiful organizes regular cleanup programs. It’s an easy way to see the problem firsthand and to do something about it. (Visit to find out more.) • If you see litter, pick it up. Even if it’s one chip bag or straw wrapper – that’s one less piece of litter on the street. • Clean up after your dog. Yes, that’s litter too! The campaign is fun and interactive. I encourage everyone to visit the campaign’s website, to where you can write your own


The debate over whether people should be allowed to smoke in public places such as bars and restaurants is heating up again. hour. Exposure to third-hand smoke is not prudent. “I do not think gambling is wise either. The state of Ohio encourages that activity (lottery) too. “It makes you wonder about the intelligence of the legislatures. Of course legislatures and intelligence are oxymorons. “Why would any educated person submit themselves to a proven health hazard promulgated by stupid people?” J.S.D. “In my opinion, they are totally ineffective in terms of inducing smokers to quit, and probably only minimally effective, if at all, in reducing exposure of nonsmokers to second-hand smoke. “I suspect that the bans are only ‘feel-good’ measures in the end. I say this as a reformed and repentant smoker who smoked for probably 25 years, and quit only after 2 year-long failed attempts. I wish I had never started, but I can't change the past. “Addiction to cigarettes is in the same category as obesity and poor physical fitness today. It's all about willpower. “We can blame it on Sir Walter Raleigh, I guess, but ultimately we have to take responsibility for own actions.” Bill B. “I think the ban is very effective. I particularly like the ban in restaurants. I hated eating in smoky places and would avoid certain establishments because of the smoke. Keep the ban.” K.S. “Not sure, but I like the nonsmoking restaurants.” N.P.

Ohio manufacturers can compete successfully against anyone, but only if they have a level playing field. In soccer’s World Cup a blown call can cost a coach his job. When it comes to international trade a blown call can cost thousands of jobs. Yet when it comes to competing against some countries there’s no such thing as a level playing field. In China, for example, currency manipulation, product dumping and other trade abuses have repeatedly undermined legitimate competition from American workers and manufacturers. The United States needs to be a leader in the global clean energy economy. But right now, China is working every day to win the clean energy race – at any cost and by any means necessary. Chinese spending on renewable energy is nearly double that of the United States. For each day we delay investments in clean energy China spends $51 million to widen that unacceptable gap. And China is not only using its abundance of capital to monopolize clean energy manufacturing. It is also elbowing competition out of the way by discriminating against U.S. companies and manufacturers. China cries foul at our Buy America policies, but has its own “Buy China” policies. China’s so-called “indigenous innovation” policies provide preferences to products containing Chinese-developed intellectual property for government procurement purposes. Meanwhile, China’s currency manipulation imposes an enormous and unfair competitive disadvantage on our workers and

manufacturers. By artificially lowering the value of its currency, the yuan, China keeps the U.S. dollar artificially high – by up to 40 perSen. Sherrod cent. Brown This results Community in higher prices U.S.-made Press guest on goods that are columnist exported to China and cheaper China-made goods imported to the U.S. While such a practice is illegal under U.S. and international law, China continues to get away with it. Last week’s announcement that China will allow a gradual appreciation in the value of the yuan was well timed on China’s part to mute criticism at the G-20 meeting in Canada this past weekend, but it does not instill confidence. This would not be the first time China announced a positive step to deter our nation from taking action, only to revert back to its old ways when the spotlight fades. President Obama has shown a willingness to enforce trade rules; he is the first president to invoke the “Section 421” safeguards, as he did when he granted relief to the U.S. consumer tire industry. This single action saved at least 100 jobs in Findlay, Ohio, with more benefits to come in the year ahead. The U.S. Commerce Department also found that steel pipe and tube manufacturers are being dramatically undercut by China. As a result, the International Trade Commission (ITC) granted

immediate relief on “Oil Country Tubular Goods,” which is helping a steel pipe manufacturer expand operations in Youngstown. I was recently in Youngstown at the groundbreaking ceremony at this steel plant. The hundreds of jobs and new economic development in the region was made possible by a combination of trade enforcement and critical Recovery Act funds, as President Obama made clear during his visit to Youngstown in May. These are good developments, but we must do more to show that we are serious about re-balancing our trade relationship with China and defending our national economic interests. The U.S. Commerce Department faces an important decision on whether to investigate China’s currency manipulation on behalf of paper manufacturers in Ohio and several other states. These companies and their workers – in West Carrolton and Miamisburg, and Chillicothe – are holding on for dear life. And like manufacturers and workers across the U.S., they understand why enforcing our trade laws is so vital. They know firsthand why our trade laws must combat currency manipulation. We cannot enter the next decade of the 21st Century further behind China. If China leads the clean energy revolution we will trade dependence on foreign oil with dependence on Chinese or foreign-made clean energy technologies. But with the right investments and a good referee we can level the playing field to make sure that doesn’t happen. Sherrod Brown is the United State senator for Ohio.

Level playing field for Ohio manufacturers


“I can’t remember the last time I was exposed to people smoking in an indoor public place in Ohio. That is proof enough for me to believe the ban works and I want it to continue to work. “While I smoked for about 8 years during my teenage and early 20s years, I quit in 1970 and have not smoked again. “I find exposure to smoke offensive and we all know it is unhealthy. There is no reasonable basis for questioning that it is workplace hazard for those who must work where people smoke. No one has a ‘right’ to contaminate the air that we breath. “Ohio should not back down on this issue.” F.S.D.

The city was chosen by the national nonprofit Keep America Beautiful to test this campaign as a pilot program. This is the organization that came up with the “Crying Indian” campaign that caused a stir 40 years ago, so if anyone can do it, they can! If successful, this campaign will be modeled in other cities throughout the country. The campaign, aptly titled “Littering Is Wrong Too,” takes a humorous and light-hearted approach to portray the act of littering as amoral and just plain wrong. Everyone can play a role in improving Cincinnati and their individual communities by following these simple tips: • Don’t litter. Set a good example for your friends, kids and neighbors. • Never throw trash out of your car window. Also, be aware when driving with your windows open. Loose items like paper or candy wrappers can fly out easily. • Do not throw leftover food such as banana peels on the ground. Organic or not, it is an eyesore, leads to more litter and attracts animals to the street and

Take a swing

Children interested in tennis aren’t letting the summer heat stop them from sharpening their skills. Camargo Racquet Club is hosting summer camp for local children of various skill levels, taking the place of the summer camp typically held at Stephan Field in Indian Hill. The camp, which has featured instructors from the club in each of its 14 years, offers children basic instruction on playing the game as well as games intended to keep campers’ attention. The camp moved to the club this year due in part to the heat and road construction near Stephan Field.

The current of life today is not kind to us When we’re young we dream about how we’re going to change the world. When we grow older we find it’s hard enough trying to keep the world from changing us. There is an inexorable current in life that swirls and rubs against us as it flows. Like water running over a solid rock, it can wear us down, a little bit here, a little bit there. Our positive ideals and dreams can be gradually worn away until we become disfigured and not at all as we intended. Life’s current that flows against us today is certainly not kind to us. Nor is it designed to form us in healthy ways. It has become more coarse, violent and self-centered. Our civilization is losing its civility. A symbol of today’s harshness can be found in the extreme fighting sports. Participants punch, kick and bloodily pound each other as the audience applauds.

For a moment we can imagine we’re back watching the brutality of the Roman coliseum! Te l e v i s i o n , newspapers and Father Lou movies show us Guntzelman homeless people with Perspectives beaten baseball bats, women being stoned to death for adultery, children murdered, our young children murdered, the Taliban seizes 10 unarmed people dedicated for years to helping the poor and sick, marches them into the woods and shoots them down. Do we experience shock or revulsion? Or are we inured to life’s pitiless current? There seems to be a constant dumbing down of the finer things of life. Our country, formerly in the first place in the world in the

percentage of those gaining college degrees, has now fallen to 12th place over the last 30 years. “Spend more money and we’ll be back as No. 1,” we think. Really? Spending more money accomplishes everything? Does spending money create civility? Right now we’re practicing denial. Who wants to hear that the sky is falling, that drugs are spreading, and that the food we thought was good for us isn’t? We don’t want to hear it. So, we live as though it isn’t true. Mental health experts urge us to be more proactive. Sometimes we must learn how to swim upstream to reroute the current of life that is diminishing us. We have so many good things to protect, preserve and enjoy – the people we love and who love us; more opportunities than we realize; good books, music, art and athletics to uplift and inspire; and a spirituality that brings inner

We have so many good things to protect, preserve and enjoy – the people we love and who love us; more opportunities than we realize; good books, music, art and athletics to uplift and inspire; and a spirituality that brings inner peace. peace. In the fading days of the Roman Empire the leaders of the people thought that “bread and circuses” were the political solution. They would divert the common people from realizing the disintegration of their country. Hopefully, we’re not ready for our fading days yet. It’s time to use the adult and insightful minds we’ve been given to keep from losing all our youthful dreams. G.K. Chesterton wrote: “There is a kind of work which anyone can do, but from which many people shrink, generally because it is very hard work, and sometimes because they fear it will lead them where they do not wish to go. It is

called thinking.” It is hard to fight a current. Sometimes we talk a good game but really don’t want to expend the effort to go where our hearts and minds tell us we must go. Chesterton’s quote calls us to think. See what’s happening to us. Then adopt the motto of the City of Blue Ash that has worked so well: “Aspire! Achieve! Advance!” Father Lou Guntzelman is a Catholic priest of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati. Contact him at columns@community or P.O. Box 428541, Cincinnati, OH 45242.

Don’t skip the Skype when traveling overseas Traveling overseas can be quite expensive, especially when you consider the exchange rate with the U.S. dollar. So I thought I’d share some of the best ways I found to get cash in the local currency, as well as to make calls back to the U.S. without breaking the bank. It used to be the best way to get cash while overseas was to go to a local ATM and get the local currency. That gives you the best currency exchange rate and it’s less expensive than going to a money exchange store. But now many local

banks have started charging a 3 percent conversion fee to use a foreign ATM, just as happens with most credHoward Ain it cards Hey Howard! when you use them outside the country. But there’s a way you can avoid all these conversion fees. All it takes a little planning. Institutions like Union Savings Bank offer an ATM card but don’t charge any fees at all. Officials there tell me you

may have to pay a fee imposed by the ATM you use, but Union Savings won’t charge anything. So, allow a few days to set up a checking account at a conversion-free bank and get an ATM card there before your trip. Most credit cards also charge a conversion fee ranging from 2.7 percent to 3 percent, depending on the card you use. However, cards issued by Capital One don’t charge any conversion fee at all. I got such a card to for the express purpose of using it outside the U.S. Often when calling back to the U.S. you have to pay

what can amount to expensive international calling charges. But, I found if you have access to WiFi while on vacation, you can save a bundle. I used my iPod Touch, which is not a phone, and downloaded Skype, which most people use to carry on conversations using computers. Skype also allows you to call a landline phone and talk using your computer. So, using my iPod Touch, which is small enough to put in my pocket, I walked around, found local places advertising free WiFi, and

made my calls to the telephones back home. The only thing I needed to get before I left the U.S. was a set of earbuds that included a microphone in the cord. Skype has a 30-day free trial period which both my brother Stewart and I used when we went outside the U.S. Stewart found Skype to be very good, with a clear connection, but only when he had a strong enough WiFi signal. I also found Skype worked perfectly and was simply amazed at the clarity

of the calls. Going over your free trial period cost less than $7 a month, but it’s well worth it when you compare it with the cost of an international cell phone calling plan. Bottom line, a little planning can save you a lot if you’re considering travel outside the U.S. Howard Ain answers consumer complaints weekdays on WKRC-TV Local 12.

Favorite recipes are shared among friends, readers Today and next week I’m sharing some favorite recipes – the ones that readers request throughout the year. If you have a favorite dish that everyone raves about, I’d love for you to share it. Try the frozen fruit cocktail dessert or sorbet for a cool ending to the recordbreaking hot days we’ve been having.

Lela Groene’s heirloom frozen fruit cocktail dessert

“This was a favorite at holidays and other special meals,” Lela wrote. Make sure you use evaporated, not sweetened condensed milk, for this dessert. 3 oz. cream cheese, softened 2 tablespoons lemon juice

1 tables p o o n maraschino cherry juice (from jar) 2 ⁄3 cup evaporatRita ed 1milk 6 Heikenfeld l a r g e Rita’s kitchen m a r s h mallows 16-oz. can fruit cocktail, undrained 1 ⁄4 cup chopped maraschino cherries. Mix together cheese and juices, and let stand. In a saucepan, combine milk and marshmallows. Stir over medium heat until marshmallows melt. Remove from heat. Stir in cream cheese mixture. Mix in fruit cocktail and cherries. Line a 12-cup muffin pan with paper muffin cups. Spoon mixture evenly into muffin cups. Freeze until


firm. Remove from tin, still in paper muffin cups, and serve frozen. They will thaw just a little on the serving plate.

Jayne Homsher’s bleu cheese coleslaw

Madeira resident Jayne Homsher shares her version. Feel free to add more bleu cheese if you like. 1

1 ⁄2 lbs. green cabbage, shredded 2 carrots, peeled and shredded 1 ⁄4 cup sweet onion, finely chopped 1 ⁄3 cup cider vinegar 3 tablespoons sugar 1 ⁄3 cup mayonnaise 1 ⁄3 cup sour cream 1 ⁄3 cup crumbled bleu cheese Salt and pepper to taste Combine cabbage, carrots and onion. Heat cider vinegar and sugar to boil.

Toss with vegetables and let sit 15 minutes. Drain the vegetables well and combine with remaining ingredients. Prepare at least two hours ahead or overnight so flavors can mingle.

Helen Sarky’s Lebanese vegetarian green bean stew

Anderson Township reader Helen Sarky sent me this recipe. These beans are always served in some fashion at the famous Lebanese festival held at St. Anthony’s of Padua 1 pound fresh or frozen green beans, cut into 2-inch lengths 2 tablespoons olive oil 1 ⁄2 cup sliced thinly onions 1 tablespoon minced garlic (opt.) 1 ⁄4 teaspoon ground cinnamon or to taste


Salt and pepper to taste 2 teaspoons chopped fresh mint 11⁄2 cups diced tomatoes 1 cup water or chicken stock 1 tablespoon lemon juice Heat oil over medium heat until hot. Add onions and sauté until caramelized (three minutes); add garlic and sauté another two minutes. Stir in cinnamon, salt, pepper and mint and keep stirring. Add tomatoes, water and lemon juice and keep stirring. Add beans and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, cover pan and cook until tender, about 20 minutes. Serve over a bed of cooked rice.

Five-minute fruit sorbet

Any canned fruit works well. Fruit cocktail and apricot are favorites at my house.

1 can, 16 oz. or so, fruit in heavy syrup 1 tablespoons lemon juice 1 teaspoon vanilla (opt.) Place unopened can in freezer for at least 12 hours or until frozen. Submerge unopened can in hot water for a minute to loosen edges. Transfer contents to food processor or blender in batches if necessary, cutting into several chunks. Process or blend until smooth, about half a minute. Add lemon juice and blend. Scoop into balls and serve right away or refreeze up to eight hours.

100’s Lined up Yesterday at the Hilton Hotel Cincinnati Airport for the Vintage Guitar Show. By Mort Enright STAFF WRITER TheInternationalVintageGuitarCollectorsAssociation will be placing ads in newspapers, radio and running television spots this week asking people to bring in any and all guitars. Those that do bring in their guitars will be able to speak with collectors one on one and have their items looked at with an expert set of eyes. With the help of these IVGCA members, offers will be made to those that have vintage and modern guitars. Highest prices are paid for those made before 1970. All guitars will be examined and purchased including vintage guitars, acoustic guitars, banjos, any and all other types of musical instruments. Those that decide to sell their items will be paid on the spot. If you are like a lot of people you might have an old Vintage Guitar lying around. If you have ever wondered what it’s worth, now might be your chance to find out and even sell it, if you choose. Vintage guitars could be worth a lot according to the International Vintage Guitar Collectors Association also known as IVGCA. Collectors will pay a fortune for Vintage Guitars, Banjos, Acoustic Guitars and even Drum Sets for their collections. If they are rare enough, one could be worth over $100,000 according to David Mcintosh, Vintage Guitar Collector and IVGCA member. One 1960 Gibson Les Paul went for $100,000 to a collector in July of 2007. While that is an extreme example, many rare and valuable guitars are stashed away in attics, closets, basements, or in a garage around the country. The IVGCA and its collectors have organized a traveling event in search of all types of Vintage Guitars and Instruments. “Even common guitars can be worth a significant amount due to high collector demands,” says Mcintosh. The rarest guitars these collectors are looking for include: Martin, Gibson, Gretsch and Rickenbacker. These guitars always bring big premiums according to the IVGCA. While the IVGCA’s specialty is guitars, they are also examining other instruments, including drum sets, banjos, flutes, clarinets, etc. The IVGCA says “You never really know what you have until your item is evaluated by experts. Whatever kind of instrument you may have, bring it in to our experts. Think about it. You could walk away $100,000 richer!” So, whether you have one instrument you think might be valuable or a large collection you recently inherited, you can talk to these collectors for free. If you’re lucky, you may have a rarity worth thousands. Either way, there is nothing to lose and it sounds like fun.

Here’s How It Works: instruments there is no limit to the amount of items you can bring.

Happy kids enjoy the new playground equipment at Indian Hill’s Livingston Lodge fields.

Teaming together

With support from the Indian Hill Recreation and donations from various IHRC members and supporters, a new playground system was installed in early May at the Livingston Lodge soccer fields. IHRC member Brian Folke supervised and coordinated the various phases of installation. Jeff Meurer provided the underlying fabric for the play area. Les Irvine facilitated the installation of certified playground mulch at a significant discount. Alex Sulfsted provided landscaping services. The Indian Hill Public Works staff helped prepare the area by removing dead trees and underbrush. Pete DeLois of Recreations Unlimited offered the playground equipment for purchase at cost and then donated the manpower to install it. Young athletes and their siblings will have a safe and enjoyable place to play while IHRC soccer practices and games are in progress.

Cincinnati ladies, have you had a mammogram in the past 12 months? The American Cancer Society recommends women have a mammogram every year starting at age 40. At The Jewish Hospital, they know that early detection of breast cancer dramatically improves survival rates. That’s why they try to make it easier to fit your mammogram into your busy schedule by bringing mobile mammography vans to community locations near you. Make it a priority to take care of your body by scheduling an appointment today at a location convenient to your home or workplace on The Jewish Hospital mobile mammography van. Screening mammograms on the van take only 15 minutes or less. Appointments are required and can be made by calling 513-6863300. Most appointment times are between 7 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. Never been screened on the van before? Having your records transferred to Jewish Hospital from another health care provider is easy to do. Ask for details when you call to schedule an appointment. The schedule: Anderson Township, Kroger, 7580 Beechmont Ave., Monday, Aug. 23 Crestview Hills, Crestview Hills Town Center, 2791 Town Center Blvd., Friday, Aug. 13 Deerfield Township, Deerfield Towne Centre, 5305 Deerfield Blvd., Monday, Aug. 16

Screening mammograms on the van take only 15 minutes or less. Appointments are required and can be made by calling 513-686-3300. Most appointment times are between 7 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. Screening mammograms are usually a covered benefit with most insurance carriers.

field digital technology, allowing images to be viewed in seconds so the technologist can check for proper positioning, reducing the possibility of coming back for repeat images; • have dressing rooms that provide absolute privacy, and • are accredited by the American College of Radiology and the Mammography Quality Standards Acts. Screening mammograms are usually a covered benefit with most insurance carriers. For best coverage, patients should verify that The Jewish Hospital is an in-network provider with their insurance carrier. For women who are uninsured or underinsured (have high deductibles), financial assistance programs are available. Call 513-686-3310 for more information. All mammograms are read by the expert radiologists of Professional Radiology Inc. And, because a second look can mean a second chance, all of our mammograms are doublechecked by the R2 ImageChecker, a computer aided detection system that detects 23.4 percent more breast cancer than mammography alone. Both the patient and her physician receive a copy of the results.

Father, son the hunt for sunken sea treasure Gannett News Service


Within two weeks of securing rights to excavate about 12 square miles of ocean floor off the coast of Florida, Indian Hill residents and real estate developers Bill and Brent Brisben found $500,000 worth of loot. “Everybody is fascinated by this. That’s part of what drew us into it,” the

younger Brisben said. “It’s interesting, fascinating and a heck of a lot of fun.” Don’t Move-Improve

is handled in state courts. Because sunken treasure has been lost for hundreds of years it had been exempt from traditional maritime laws which required findings be split between the owner and hunter. Until 1975 sunken treasure hadn’t been governed by law at all. The U.S. Supreme Court eventually handled a case involving the Fisher family and ruled that hunters must participate in a process called “divisions” at the end of each year. They bring all of the findings during the year to the state, which lays claim to 20 percent. The rest is typically split between the investors and the contractors who found the items. “You have to have perseverance,” Fismer said. Treasure hunting can be costly and provide few returns, especially after the division process. “Hopefully they’ve got people advising them.” The Brisbens are prepared for their explorations to take some time. Treasure is typically buried under 6 to 12 feet of sand, and is best found in the summer months when the waters are warmer and calmer. Divers hired by the Brisbens lower an elbowshaped tube over the propeller of the boat and then fire the engines. When the water flushes through the tube, it comes out the bottom and digs a hole in the sand down to the bedrock. Divers then swim with metal detectors to search the holes. The Brisbens use a stateof-the-art computer-assisted

has helped hunters track every hole that has been explored and what was found in those holes. Friends back home expect the Brisbens have taken the same hard look at the risk and reward as they did in the real estate industry. “My guess is that Bill negotiated and bought in really good, and he probably knows exactly what his downside is,” said Phil Montanus, a partner in Mt. Adams-based real estate firm, Towne Properties. “He’ll personally get involved and work it hard. That’s how he’s been successful in real estate.” The July 11 findings gave some reassurance that the rewards could be great. Investors and appraisers already have called about laying claim to the Brisbens’ findings. One coin, for example, is valued at $20,000. Several production companies are interested in a reality show about their operations.


Indian Hill residents and real estate developers Bill and Brent Brisben bought in June salvage rights to the 1715 Spanish Fleet from the family of famed treasure hunter Mel Fisher.

Sup por t Ou r Tro

The only thing riskier than a decades-long career in real estate may be hunting for treasure deep below the ocean’s floor. It’s paying off for father and son Bill and Brent Brisben. The once-active real estate developers bought salvage rights in June to 75 square miles of Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Florida. They believe up to $900 million worth of gold, silver, jewels and artifacts from an 18th century fleet of Spanish ships is buried deep below the ocean floor there. In just a month of diving, they’ve already found $500,000 worth of loot including a 400-year-old cannon, 51 gold and 41 silver coins dated from 1698. Bill Brisben founded and built Sycamore Townshipbased Brisben Cos. into a national developer and operator of apartment communities. At one time, his company owned 20,000 units in 20 states. He sold the company in 2002 and was appointed by former President George Bush a U.S. ambassador to UNICEF until 2009. Although Brisben kept his home in Indian Hill, he spent much of his time in Florida in recent years building up a collection of recovered treasure. “All his life he had been fascinated with treasure and treasure hunting,” said his son, Brent. In February, Bill convinced Brent of Montgomery to join him in Sebastian, Fla., the home of famed treasure hunter Mel Fisher’s Treasure Museum. Fisher’s family had offered up for sale its custodial rights to search for the remains of the 1715 Spanish Fleet, believed to be strewn along the ocean floor between Melbourne and Stewart, Fla. “It was too good to pass up,” Brisben said. “Luckily, we were the ones they chose to sell it to.” The story goes that 11 ships left Havana, Cuba, that year on their way back to Spain. They carried thousands of coins, artifacts and eight chests of jewels that King Philip V planned to use as dowry in his marriage to Queen Elizabeth (called the Queen’s Jewels). But the ships got caught in a hurricane, and all but one sank. The Queen’s Jewels have since provided the story lines behind movies “The Deep” and “Fool’s Gold.” The first traces of the fleet were found in the early 1960s, said Carl Fismer, a 40-year treasure hunter who runs the Spanish Main Treasure Co. in the Florida Keys. A Hamilton native, he worked on the 1715 fleet from 1980 to 1992. Fisher received custodial rights in the early 1960s and had success finding coinage and artifacts through 1990. But since then, major finds have been fewer, Fismer said. “There is still treasure there to be had,” he said. “But how many years is it going to take to get it?” Particularly challenging also is the controversy surrounding private treasure hunting in the state of Florida. Federal admiralty law governs business that happens on the sea like marine commerce, navigation, shipping and salvage, but it

Beach volleyball headed to Columbia Twp. Manhattan Beach, Virginia Beach and Malibu, with their sand and surf, are all obvious beach volleyball venues on the Association of Volleyball Professionals tour schedule. In 2010, Hahana Beach, Ohio, will be added to that list. Trucks recently rolled down Wooster Pike and dumped 2,000-3,000 tons of sand in a new restaurant/sports complex called Hahana Beach. From Sept. 3-5, the biggest names in beach volleyball will play the AVP Tournament of Champions there. Bob Slattery, who is sanctioned by the AVP to put on the local tournament, is building the 6-acre complex in Columbia Township, which will include a restaurant, bar and six sand volleyball courts open yearround to recreational and youth leagues. “We will absolutely be open by Labor Day,” he said. That’s when the threeday AVP event that showcases the top 24 men’s and women’s teams is scheduled for Cincinnati. Top players like Misty May, Todd Rogers, and Phil Dalhausser – the top-scoring players of the preceding season – will be here to play each other for purses of


Robert J. Slattery stands on what will be Center Court of the next AVP Volleyball beach volleyball tournament Sept. 3-5 at Hahana Beach in Columbia Township. $150,000- $200,000. Since 2004, when Slattery bought the sanction, the AVP has played at the Lindner Family Tennis Center in Mason. They have had successful events there every year since, said Slattery. “We are the only stop on the AVP tour that does not have a traditional beach. Except for Chicago, where they play on Lake Michigan, the other stops are on the East or West Coast,” said Slattery. “But we set records here for paid attendance.” However, sharing a tennis facility creates logistical problems. For the AVP events, which occur very close to tennis events on the calendar, “We have to move 8,000 tons of sand onto the tennis court in 72 hours. Then we have to move it off in another 72 hours,” Slattery said. With a dedicated volleyball facility he can bring in other volleyball events, including, perhaps, Olympics qualifying trials,

and possibly events like skateboarding. At the Lindner Center, they were able to seat 5,000. For the Tournament of Champions at Hahana Beach they will erect bleachers over most of the courts, with seating for 2,700. But this smaller, boutique venue, he said, “could become a model for the AVP in the future.” He hopes that it’s a model he can reproduce in the future in other cities. Hahana Beach is about more than watching bodychiseled men in board shorts and women in bikinis play professionally. The enterprise is aimed at healthy lifestyle, outdoorsports enthusiasts. Slattery has partnered with Brian Polark, the owner of Cincinnati Sports Leagues, who will be the director of programming. His company currently creates recreational sporting events for more than 25,000 Cincinnatians, mostly in the 21-34 age

range, events that include a strong social and fun-loving aspect. “We want to capture beach culture here in Cincinnati,” said Polark, “when you have fun all day outdoors, but then the sun goes down, and the party doesn’t end.” The restaurant is in the former Recreations Outlet store and is being re-built to add rolling garage doors that open completely to the outdoors, and balconies overlooking the courts. The restaurant menu will carry out the healthy lifestyle theme. “We’ve looked at bars in Chicago and seen that the successful ones are those with really good food, not just drinks and nightlife. We’ll have a limited menu but great stuff,” said Polark. It will tend toward healthy, light food with a California feel. The restaurant will seat 200 for lunch and dinner. Slattery, who’s CEO of Reach USA, a pet fencing company, and Wag’s Park in Newtown, also owns Slatt’s Pub in Blue Ash. Eight sand courts will be open for league play. Polark says Cincinnati is something of a hotbed for watching and playing volleyball, both traditional indoor and beach versions, and its popularity continues to grow. Xavier University and University of Cincinnati have strong teams, as do many local high schools. He expects the sport will see even more growth now that it’s a Division 1 College sport, with full-ride scholarships available at some colleges. Hahana will have a youth program, headed by UC coach Reed Sunahara. “The cool thing about volleyball is that anyone can pick up a volleyball and hit it over the net, “said Slattery. “It ‘s sort of like bowling in the 60’s.” But at higher levels of play, when the good players have evolved from playing with 6-member teams to 4person teams and finally to the AVP two-person team, said Polark, “it’s a sport that really cultivates athleticism.” Slattery has also bought the Heritage restaurant building and site across the street on Wooster Pike. He’s working on plans for that property.
